The 1619 Project Lies About the Founding Fathers and Slavery
"The book is debunking the sixteen nineteen project and boy does it need debunking. It is preposterous. It's being pushed out there Mary you were You you are a resident fellow at the alexander. Hamilton institute for the study of western civilization. I learned i think only last night watching rick. Burns's nineteen ninety nine nine hundred ninety nine documentary about new york that alexander hamilton one of our founding fathers. He was very active in ending slavery. In his this is over two hundred years ago so again the sixteen nineteen project access though. That never happened exactly and another thing. Is i spend a considerable bowl amount of time on. Thomas jefferson one of the big lies of the sixteen. Nineteen project is that he never intended to abolish slavery. Now thomas jefferson owned hundreds of slaves. He was born into a slave owning family but even for him. That is completely false. He spent his life trying to figure out a way to end slavery peacefully how to how to avoid a civil war he saw that coming and so is completely false to even charge. Thomas jefferson with wanting to continue slavery. That is completely false. It may not be in the way that nicole. Hannah jones in the other riders. What have it which was to start a communist revolution. But he was someone who did want to abolish slavery peacefully.

The Time Has Come to Reclaim the American Republic
"The time has come to reclaim what is ours. As I write in American Marxism. What is ours, the American Republic from those who seek to destroy it. If we expect others to rescue our nation for us, as we go about our daily lives as mere observers to what is transpiring Or close our eyes and ears to current events. We will lose the struggle and yes, it's a struggle. We've allowed the American Marxists to define who we are as a people. They d famous land. Our ancestors in history and trash have founding documents and principles. They're mostly reprobates who hate the country. And have contributed nothing to its betterment. Fact they live off the sweat and toil of others. You While they pursue a destructive and diabolical course for our nation. Undermining its sabotaging virtually every institution in our society. The ideology and worldview are based on the arguments and beliefs of a man Karl Marx, whose writings are responsible for the enslavement. Impoverishment, torture and death of untold millions. This is a hard fact. Despite the predictable protest stations from some in our society who embrace an advanced Marxism score ideas. But attempted disassociate themselves from responsibility for its inevitable outcomes. These are the useful idiots who occupy influential and leadership positions of the Democratic Party, media, academia, culture and so forth. But we must take solace and find strength in the sacrifice and bravery of our early revolutionaries. Joseph Warren Samuel Adams. John Hancock, Paul Revere, Tom Paine. To name just a few. And become energized and inspired by the wisdom and genius of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson. John Adams, James Madison.
Should Discussions of Race Make It Into Our School Curriculum?
"Only thing i'm saying is when you're teaching history to a bunch of kids you know you have to teach at all at least you have to teach the basic pointers and for black americans. The history of this country has been less than favourable. So i think that in the context of that discussion saying and to this day. We still have some problems with race. There are some legacies of slavery that still affect black people working on it today. Something like that. That's a kind of racial ization that i'm in favor of because it doesn't encourage stereotyping. It doesn't encourage discrimination. It just encourages a base awareness of some serious problems. So but that's not happening right. Is that largely what we're seeing through school districts like chicago And in washington. Dc and the entire california school system representing ten thousand schools and six million student. I've seen the of documents on those. Yeah it is that it. It doesn't have that kind of nuance and complexity that you just present right where it's eight. Let me just say this has that part of the kind of ark angel triumphant of the woke ism. Coalition is nicole. Hannah jones robin diangelo. Mex- and nicole hannah jones in particular right the author of the sixteen nineteen project She heretical says that america was founded on slavery. Right and so part okay with that but it's just not true. Depends on what you mean by found this. She defines this. She says the founding fathers were in favorite not true. George washington wasn't john adams wasn't john quincy. Adams wasn't thomas jefferson even signed a moratorium new slaves coming into the united states ben franklin chair and anti-slavery convention in seventeen seventy five. None of these guys were writing x. Positionally how wonderful slavery. This isn't being taught to third graders sixteen nineteen projects little new york op. Ed and you know it's not a see that's where you're wrong. The sixty nineteen projects being implemented at school district curriculum in thousands of school districts across grew. Cross it's not just like a podcast. This curriculum there are principles of the sixteen nineteen project that i think are defensible. First of all we as americans tend to think of the founding of our country as its legal founding. You know but the legal. Founding of the united states didn't really mean much for a slave.

Democrats Tuck female draft into Defense Bill The Pentagon will start to draft women in order to receive funding after a House Democrats amended the defense bill. C. There's no public debate about these things. Nobody asked for your input their snuck in the bills. Jefferson called this legislative tyranny.

Gary Ginsberg Talks About His New Book 'First Friends'
"And there is really a fantastic book that's been out. It's called First Friends by Gary Ginsburg. Who's got quite a pedigree himself. Gary, How are you, sir? Very well, Thank you for having me Well, it's a fantastic book. And, uh, unfortunately, like every other Interview. There's only so much time, so let's jump right in these first friends that have an enormous influence on the president on an administration. Chapter one talks about Jefferson and Madison. Now, this audience is quite familiar with Jefferson and Madison. But Madison Was very, very close to Jefferson. I'm not sure how how much people know about that. Tell us Well, I certainly didn't. I knew they were great collaborators. But what I learned in writing this book is that they were also best friends, and they were best friends for 50 years from 17 76. So when Jefferson died on July 4th 18 26, and what I found fascinating is that they're 50 EUR 50 year relationship with deep it was emotional. It could veer between the serious like whether we needed a bill of rights to the deeply personal, For example, when Jefferson tried to help Madison overcome being jilted by a 15 year old when he was 32 years old, and they were complete opposites as I write, Jefferson was this tall, dashing Huge personality. Madison was five ft four and quite reserved, but it worked in combination and I think it's because Jefferson needed Madison's exacting mind and practical nature. As much as Madison needed Jefferson's bold ideas in large personality, and I think in my book, and I think in American history, it's probably the single most powerful friendship in the history of America.
Ida Lashes Northeast With Tornadoes and Severe Flooding
"As we mentioned remnants of hurricane ida have been spawning heavy rain tornadoes and life. Threatening conditions in the mid atlantic northeast. A tornado warning was even posted here in new york city. Major highways are flooded with cars and buses trap and the subways are shutting down in what the national weather service says is the city's first ever flash flood emergency. Several large tornadoes were reported north of philadelphia and in south jersey. As we mentioned new jersey's governor phil murphy has just declared a state of emergency. Some neighborhoods had to be evacuated cars and buses there were stranded in floodwaters and now thousands in the region are without power earlier this afternoon. What twister roared through. Parts of annapolis maryland pulling down trees and power poles and in louisiana. Where this same storm system tore apart the state's power grid. Some low lying communities remain largely underwater. Many hospitals in the state are still running on generators and again today. The governor warned evacuated residents knocked comeback yet. The water system is really poor. Electricity is non-existent. Communications actually started getting a little bit better today. We have not figured out the fuel situation. Don't come back before the paris tells you that they are ready to receive you because you're just going to create another demand on a system that can't withstand the demand that currently has for more.

American Man Helping Afghans Settle in the U.S.
"This story is not from someone trying to escape from afghanistan. But someone who's trying to help others get out of afghanistan. My name is douglas drier and I'm just an ordinary american citizen that Believes in doing the right thing. So how is my understanding that you're doing some work to help some some afghan nationals Settle and get families here to the to the us. How did you get connected with them. I met One of the brothers About five years ago at the store he worked at and to get a military discount. I showed him my retired. Id and he basically said oh. I used to work for the dod also and from his accent. I could tell he was not a native american. We got to talking and he was an interesting person. A very kind nice person so i invited him to talk at my rotary club in falls church and he agreed and i helped him work out a powerpoint presentation he gave a talk at the rotary club but during one meeting and he also gave a talk at the thomas jefferson high school for science and technology interact club and he's really opened up with the high school students and had a very compelling and interesting story about his work in afghanistan for supporting our troops so needless to say you got to know him. He introduced you to other family members. I i'm assuming and At some point you got involved in trying to help them help. Other family members come to the. Us is that right correct.
Ida Updates: The Latest on the Storm's Aftermath in Louisiana
"Hurricane Ida are now bringing intense rain and flood risk from Virginia into Maine. Louisiana, which took the full brunt of a Category four storm when it hit on Sunday, is still assessing the damages. Several people were killed and the death toll is expected to rise. The governor warning residents who fled the worst hit areas not to come back where there's still no basic infrastructure. President Biden has announced he's headed to New Orleans Friday to check out the damage he'll meet with state and local leaders. NPR's Debbie Elliott reports hundreds of thousands of people in Louisiana. Still have no electricity. The lights are back on for some in New Orleans, but much of the region remains without power, water, sewer and communication systems are also severely damaged. New Orleans has set up cooling stations to help residents cope with the heat and humidity. Makeshift distribution points are also handing out food, water and ice in the city and in harder hit parishes to the south and west. Meanwhile, search and rescue teams are working in flooded communities, and authorities are trying to get a handle on the scope of the destruction. Jefferson Parish officials, for instance, say the barrier island of Grand Isle is uninhabitable. Debbie
Ida Carves Path of Destruction Across Louisiana
"The devastation from hurricane ida's becoming more apparent as the survey of damage continues. Entire communities are underwater and dangerous conditions are making rescue efforts. Much more difficult. This comes amid soaring temperatures in louisiana and across the gulf coast. Power lines remained down and could stay that way for days or weeks to come. We have a pair of reports from our teams on the ground we begin with. Nbc's miguel almaguer the race to rescue still unfolding in louisiana the beaten and battered stranded for days plucked from homes where the water is rising and hope was fading got rescued by chuck just now pregnant and desperate heather. Weepy finally escaped the floodwaters underwater. We would have drowned facing complex maze of submerged roads buckled highways and alligator infested waters which likely claimed one life search teams still can't reach the hardest hit communities in just this one area of jefferson parish not far outside of new orleans. They had about one hundred thirty five rescues in roughly a day. They've never seen water quite like this before. And if you want to go further you'll need a boat. The easiest ways into areas like grant. I'll in lafitte is through the air. They're only roads quickly. Turn to rivers. What happened in minutes could leave stranded trapped per day. It was unbelievable. Four feet of water just came rushing with the scope of destruction coming into focus. What's out of you is also devastating surrounded by water. More than half a million have none from their taps. Safe to drink. Lines for gas in supplies are leaving locals in searing heat for some the storm's aftermath more devastating than the
Hurricane Ida Knocks out Power to New Orleans
"Of Louisiana after Hurricane Ida. I don't have a generator. I am in the dark. She's in material. Louisiana. Ida is now a tropical storm and is just passing through Jackson, Mississippi as it heads north. There have been many water rescues along the Gulf Coast. Sheriff Joe Le Pido was with Jefferson Parish and says some wanted to stay back as long as they're okay and not needing assistance. We were not going to force them and put them in a boat to bring him back, But there are other people that obviously not in that situation, so we're making sure we're getting all of them out. First workers from the F D N Y and NYPD are heading to the area to help and President Biden says federal help is headed to the area to More than 5000. Members of your National Guard has been activated from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Texas to support search and rescue and recovery efforts. Only one death was blamed on the storm.

Was Lafayette Left out of the Cultural Spotlight? With Mike Duncan
"While i was preparing for our discussion today one thing that stood out to me is the sheer lack of movies or tv. Shows about or even including lafayette. If there's one thing we've pedia is good for its those lists where they show all the different cultural depictions from people and for lafayette. It has a whopping twenty four listings of movies. Tv shows or even songs that depict him. Why do you think he's been left out of the cultural spotlight. I went through the same thing that you did. Because i knew i was going to be coming on to do this. And talking about lafayette. You know in tv and movies and was like i don't actually remember him showing up that much I you know. I've i've seen him pop a few times. I think part of it is just like in the anglophone world like an english speaking world. there haven't been that many depictions even of just like the french revolution generally right and once lafayette leaves. The american revolution goes back to france. Most of his life and adventures are set in france and set against the backdrop of the french revolution. Which sure there have been some movies about that but it has never been like a recurring major source of movies and tv shows for the english. Speaking world i mean it's not like a western or even like pirate movies. And so if you're gonna if you're gonna get lafayette you're going to get him as a teenager in the american revolution and then even when you sort of like hone. In on the american revolution there are stories that are adjacent to events in the american revolutionary war of independence. But that even those are not exactly why a vibrant genre that keeps recurring. It's not like we keep going back and turning up but there's not like a movie every single year about the american revolution so he's already kind of confined to a spot that the historical imagination doesn't go back to actually give like if we were doing a show about Let's say the industrial revolution in britain. There's historical fiction set in industrial revolution britain. Every four months right there's always going to be a show about that. And so he's already kind of in a bit of a in a bit of a box and then he himself is just adjacent enough to kind of everything whether it's john adams or whether it's thomas jefferson or whether it's Ben franklin or george washington that he's always going to be just a very hillary character
Would Any Other Great President Have Left Afghanistan?
"Because what's happened here? Ladies and gentlemen will go down in history hundreds of years from now. Hundreds of years from now. Is one of the most Preposterous, appalling. Surrenders. By any superpower in history of mankind. We surrendered. I'm tired of these people who write to go on TV and so forth, and we never should have been there. We never should have been there. Really? We never should have been there. Almost 3000 of our people slaughtered. The Taliban. Give Al Qaeda safe haven Can you think of any president any great president who would have tolerated that from George Washington and Thomas Jefferson? The Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. Theodore Roosevelt and Coolidge. Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan and beyond do you think they would have left? A terrorist cell. In a place where Americans were slaughtered. More deaths, as I recalled
No President Cares About Free Speech - Joe Biden Included
"Do you think you believe biden was was actually elected and i'm i'm fairly certain we're going to see information to the contrary soon. Everybody will have to look at it. But let's say he was the question that i have because i know you have to go. Do you think that he and his administration genuinely care about free speech. Because i don't get the impression that he that that he in the office of the president who has this tremendous bully pulpit that he gives a fig about what we are talking about right now. I don't think it even crosses his mind with the minds of the people as administration. I think they're making it work for them. Which to me is the greater scandal. Well i know. Joe biden for now. It's forty years. I like him as a person. I think he the right man for the job at this point in time. He's helping the combination. But no president kicker free speech. Thomas jefferson before he became president said given a choice between a government without newspapers or newspaper without governments. I would surely pick newspapers without government. Then he was president and then he issued a different statement. He said if nobody read newspapers. We'd be better off in smarter and fairer than if people read newspapers. So no incumbents like the media particularly and joe biden himself. I think we'll support free speech. But they're going to be people in his administration. He's appointed some people who are radically on the left just the way Republicans have appointed. Sometimes people are radically on the right. We need to move more to the center. We need to move more to all the old debate between genuine liberals in genuine conservatives. Both of whom bull we freedom of speech. I used to debate bill buckley. All the time on his television she was a conservative. A liberal enjoyed each other. We ran for a drink after we got along. There was no cancelled culture. I crave for the days of bill. Buckley versus alan dershowitz. Instead of the kind of cancel culture we're experiencing
How to Improve Hip Extension and Delay Knee Extension for Sprinting
"How'd you get someone to delay knee extension in regards to both acceleration and top end speed sprinting. So there's a few things i i like. I was like these questions. Because i think about the guests on the podcast and the mentors. I've had and i think about some of the things that they've given me that. I will put together so i would say the first big figure for me in terms of really thinking about delayed knee extension was a dairy bar before i get to some of the drills and the ideas that i've taken from him that i tend to utilize with helping people to not overextend. Extend their needs to quickly. I like to go to more of the base. Like base human functioning. And for that one. I like dave o'sullivan who is on the show. He had an exercise. He's called a slouch. I call it a j. curl for some reason. I don't think going to help her first to it. Is that but if you go to the of sullivan episode. I'll try remember to put it in the show and it's this one. There's a video there but it's a movement the where you'll be taking a split stance so like a half lunch. Think and then the front. Like i'm going to take the knee over the telephone instead of the shin perpendicular to the ground. I'm in this split half lens and taking the front new well over the toe. And from there i'm going to kind of do like a jefferson curl almost with my upper body. I'm just gonna slouch forward over that knee. And then i'm going to retract myself back up without straightening the knee and hopefully explained that pretty well but really in reality. I find the athletes who have a tendency to straighten the knee out early in sprinting. Acceleration and sprinting. They're gonna if you put them in. That slouch move position. They will invariably straighten the knee on the way back up early. So they're going to get them in that half lunge position there needs kinda forward they go down and then they're getting ready to go back up and they're either like grip on their toes like crazy at this point already which is kind of a thing that happens for people who tend to rely on quads but as soon as they start to reverse the movement. Out of the slouch the bottom. They will straighten there early. And so if you put them in a three point two point start three point start. You very often will see the same thing happening. it's just like it's a a movement. That's kind of wired in the system so i am a big fan of slowing things down before we take them fast. And i like Ed were you was on the show. I think episode two nine. His book is slowing down to run faster as a feldon christ practitioner and does a lot of work on the ground crawling even that's crawling and groundwork is the slowest you can get. But i think it's hard to do that work. You can do some crawling. Work with delayed knee extension actually in fact. It's hard to crawl in a way where you don't want your extension especially if your hips are low to the ground. So that's there's another thing. Maybe you could utilize that too. But that just creates a good like a starting place for athletes with that.
"jefferson" Discussed on NFL Live
"The game and then we're going there player all really you know i would say most likely not i feel like this is the mystery man who had been waiting for for years. It's really only been one year but we finally get to see jordan playing a game. What are you gonna be looking for for him to show us field. I cannot wait. We have seen jordan love bennett. Packers jersey on the field. And you gotta turn back the clock a little bit to win. He was drafted. Because you know coming out utah. State dorma was as roz tom. Brady's diet man like the against an incredible arm he can make all those zach. Wilson like crazy arm angled throws and he. He's athletic but lacking in decision making in fact his final year at utah state twenty touchdown. seventeen interceptions. Now it should be noted. He was playing in a difficult environment. Lack of weapons and turnover and coaching but long story short he was a developmental prospect. And guess what the year to develop. He got the mahomes here. That we're always talking about for quarterbacks. I wanna see what the result is i want to see. Has its downs down. Accuracy improved does the decision making look good his command the offense. I know it's preseason. Those questions won't be answered but some of them will and i cannot wait listening in production me now. The one thing i said was this is the other side of the equation. We've been talking all about aaron rodgers and the drama between him and the organization would have jordan. Love goes out him. Balls out in the preseason. Do you know how getting the packers organization would be because no one that at the end of the year deal iraj bounty and had their quarterback other future moving forward. Think praised that would be one organization. You go from brett farve rogers and then you could possibly go to another guy to carry on his legacy the quarterback position so i know everyone in green bay packers organization is is looking with with a with a fine to just looking glass to see if this guy can go out here and ball on the preseason and wait things in favor of the green bay packers moving forward daming that may be one of the biggest story lines in the preseason just is meena said that last year was the developmental season. This is the developmental. Preseason with the team not likely to play aaron rodgers at all. That means it's time for jordan. Love to get as many snaps as he can to get him ready as they can for after this season to know exactly what they have. So we'll see. Because that allen rogers situation or is able in the off season and there's a real chance that this is going to be his last season in green bay and if this is his last season in green bay well that means that it'll be the jordan love year next year and so they want to get him as many reps this summer and they possibly can to season them up. Get ready because next year he could be taking all those snaps in the pre and the regular season. Unlikely you did there. I said he was raw. Then you said they're gonna season in mock continued command because i'm rooting for the kid like it's been awkward and that's how awkward. It's been for him listening to us. Spend all summer talking about this drama between him and rogers and and he's almost like the child in the middle of the divorce and by all accounts rogers has been nothing but kinds of him. but still. there's a lot of pressure on him right like this preseason game. I haven't circled on the calendar. I want to watch. Because as you said astutely the future the packers organization may depend on what we see out of jordan. Love this preseason. I don't think that's too much to say. This is shefty interesting question here. Maybe the interest do you have any sense of what the packers feel about the development of jordan love or is he as much of a mystery to them as he may be to all of us. I think he is something of a mystery. And i think that they still think he's got a long way to go. And i still think that. They think he's got a lot of talent. So it's all those things all wrapped up in one which is what makes the preseason so intriguing field right. We don't know exactly what we're gonna see from jordan. Look who's got a lot of talent who is very steel muniz word raw again as a lot to learn who went into the nfl. Without knowing what was didn't even know when our rogers is the master of the hard how jordan load is figuring out. Exactly what a hard count is so. There are a lot of questions a lot of talent and a lot of mystery also surrounding jordan which is why meaning is so fired up and so excited to watch them in the preseason this weekend. It's pretty amazing. It's been over six hundred days. We lost last. Saw jordan love on a field. We have time for one more thing you're an.

"jefferson" Discussed on NFL Live
"What are the bright side of a difficult twenty twenty. Nfl season was the emergence of a strong class of rookies including twenty second pick of the draft jefferson who had a breakout season according to most receiving yards and the super bowl air for any rookie. Nfl next series. Jefferson sat down with our own courtney. Cronin you've come off this incredible season you have last year and your featured in a video game. There's all these things that happened because of how big your rookie season was. What is that like for you as you try to process that a year removed khanna came a little bit too easily just from being around my brothers Meet kind of seeing things before. I got there so right me going to lsu games being around jarvis at ten years old. I got to see a little bit more than a normal kid and then studied the game a lot so it wasn't that bad to relieve go from college to delete catch by justin jefferson. I mean you go from zero star recruit now that many years ago to where you're at right now. Do you ever kind of pinch yourself to think about. Wow like this miraculous. Rise that i've had and just how young you are. I'm glad i went a little saw. And then after like you know me being under recruited me grind even harder. so that's the type of mindset that i had something to marlboro throwing touchdown. I touched jefferson space stat. What does it mean to you to be from. Place that produces jarvis landry vowed that all of these massive names in the nfl. And you're part of it's a it's a very big honor to watch them and seeded things that they went through and just seeing their whole career. me being a fan and now that i have that relationship with them You know i'm able to call them anytime. Able to talk to him about anything so it's good to have that bond with them and you know it's always that bond coming from can't wait for a year to already so i turn the question to you i. We're jefferson stack up for you amongst the other wide receivers in the league coming off of his incredible rookie performance. Feel we talked about this in the morning. I said well. I think he's on his way the top ten but after i thought about it a little bit more. He's already top ten wide receiver for me. I mean he finished second in yards per route. Run which is a metric. I like because it captures both efficiency and production. And when you watch him. It's easy to see why he's got such a complete game. Incredible route runner incredible speed by the way run into all three levels of the field. The contested catch ability. Is there. why a touchdown machine. I mean it's really hard to find. Flaws in his game candidly and for him to be minnesota next to adam meal for them to have that one two punch. It's really not a one two punch one a and a one b punch. It's amazing i thought he would be good. I was curious to see how he would look playing outside instead of inside in the slot. I didn't think he'd be the best rookie wide receiver in the nfl. And i certainly didn't think you're too. I'd be saying he's already top ten. He won a lotta people some fantasy championships last year. But there's a bit of a news update involved right now is jefferson did get hurt and practice last week. Was the latest with his injury. Feel he went down. It looked like it could have been a significant injury. There were people on the field. The time worried about his collarbone. But i was told it was spring day see joined. It did not appear to be serious. He underwent further testing over the weekend. And again i would imagine he's going to be some time here but not enough to wear impact him and threatened his availability for the regular season. Again you see him down there. There are people who are concern. You underwent testing that day but it turned out to be just. And it's easy to say for me just a sprained. Ac joint well. They collect the sigh of relief. Found its way amongst vikings sweater when you tweeted about that injury update just a couple of days ago. So damian. justin jefferson's a star. The offense has plenty of skill dishes and talent. But kim the vikings be a legitimate threat to the packers and the division and make a push for the playoffs in the nfc. Absolutely they can be a threat to the packers division. I love the the. I think the defense is going to be a lot better. The edison pieces on offense particularly from office alive but field at the end of day. It's gonna come down to quarterbacks and when you look at measure kirk cousins against aaron rodgers. You're talking apples and oranges. Kirk cousins has still yet to go out there and have a lot of meaningful games in the postseason. He's he's a staffer he stuff. The there's no question about it but when it's all said and done when when you need the big games that's what separates you know. Kirk cousins air rods. Aaron rodgers wanted to do it that we've seen in this league. And i think that's the difference between the green bay packers in minnesota vikings at the quarterback position. Interestingly enough fbi gives the vikings a twenty eight percent chance to win the nfc north. Higher than i would have expected math says when to great things come together. They make something greater. For instance one plus one was too simple right. How about this trunk. Plus hotdogs equals tailgate or turf plus dancefloor was in zone. And when you add friends plus football equals. Espn fantasy football. It's as simple as that. Espn fantasy football with insights provided by ibm watson sign up now at espn dot com slash. Fantasy football feel. The name of the game is continuity. And that's one thing that the bills organization have they've got great chemistry brace energy from top to bottom. But most importantly their star quarterback they paid a ton of money to is a superstar in the national football league. I loved it. The signing of emmanuel sanders to to add on with stefan digs and company. This offense is going to be one of the most explosive offense in the league. And that's why the buffalo bills my opinions favor to win the afc. So i think this one is closer for a reason. I mean you see. It's only three percent difference between baltimore and cleveland. I think that's right. As far as the model favoring baltimore make sense. I think given some of the editions. They've made i on defense signing. I love designing justin. Houston the drafting dafa. That secondary's been excellent for a long time offense if bateman is injured for a while you just heard a little bit about his injury. I'd be a little bit concerned. But i do. Love the the difference. They made on the offensive line and elsewhere at wide receiver. And i think it makes sense. And they're on top. It's no surprise that chiefs are the afc west favors fbi. Also likes them to have the most wins. The best chance of the one seed in the afc. The best chance of homefield advantage the best chance of basically everything is good question marks from the chiefs not many for me but i do want to see what they get out of their edge rushing group and also their quarterback that those are two potential areas very small achilles heels but otherwise the chiefs looked prime to potentially returned. There's third straight super bowl so we'll move to the afc south where we believe at the very top. There is a favourite. The titans are the favorites to repeat as division champs. According to the fbi in part because quarterback ryan tannehill continues to play at a high level for the franchisee but despite that strong play star wide receiver. Thanks aj brown aj. Excuse me thinks tannehill deserves even more props. He's not in a top top talk. Whatever is to me is nonsense. You know a mini games. We came back to minute. You know they're going to get the ball. Every play move. Somebody got throws the ball. He's very accurate. So you know anybody who sleeping on this nonsense. But he doesn't really care about stuff and knew the dewey so.
"jefferson" Discussed on NFL Live
"Buccaneers begin their super bowl. Defense against dak prescott and his cowboys with that. We say hello. Welcome in the. Nfl live hyped up today. Show a great cast includes from left to right meantime damien woody and adam schefter will. I am field. Yates and perhaps no team has been talked about early on and training camp than the indianapolis colts who are dealing with high profile injuries to quarterback carson wentz and i'll pro guard quick nelson while jacobson was the first player to step in for once to team is already getting rookie. Six round picks and etlinger reps with the first team offense so who is samuel while the former longhorn quarterback play four seasons at texas where he threw for ninety four touchdowns passing patrick mahomes percent closed in big twelve history this year. He was selected two hundred eighteenth overall making the first texas quarterback taken colt mccoy back in twenty ten. His one of two quarterbacks on the roster revving ticket nfl snap in fact only to carson wentz and brett hundley. Here's head coach. Frank reich on why the team is giving etlinger more work end up splitting the reps A quarterback today of the ones with jacob and and sand. It wasn't anything with jacob doing anything wrong. It was just you know this talk crecy and sounds look good so decide to split it up good news as they both looked sharp today. We'll continue to split those reps and just take day by day. Like i feel better today. You know that we today the real competitive day and both guys out there you know made some. Nfl type plays you know that you need to make in games and against good defensive. So i think we're heading in right direction. Large worth noting that reich also said jacob ec will start sunday's preseason game against carolina but he will split first team snatch with sam etlinger in the joint practices versus the panthers later this week so we turned shefty for more on this. What can you tell us about this interesting. Move out of indianapolis will feel. We're just about a week. After carson wentz underwent foot surgery and initially it was supposed to be jacobson as the guy they were leaning on but during the course of practices. Sam melgar's looked awfully good in fact he went change. Stray practices without throwing interception. His first interception didn't come until sunday and so the more they saw of sam l. and grow the more. They liked him to the point now where he closed out. Today's practice with the colts starting out. The beauty of this right now is epic colts and allow the free season and the games that occur in the preseason to decide which quarterback would be the one to store on opening day of carson wentz. Couldn't make it back from the foot surgery last week. That initially was supposed to sideline him five to twelve weeks. Now they feel pretty good about carson wentz right now but they won't know more officially about as recovery until next week but in the interim sam etlinger has moved into the conversation and into the competition. The colts starting quarterback job opening day. If wins can come back by then this is wild. I the i get it. I get to thinking which. Adam laid out really well there. You know watching. Sam elegant college not the strongest arm. Not like an incredible athlete but he can scramble and he can point guard. The offense you know he'll take care of the football which to adams point. i think. What is appealing to the colts. Compared to jason jacob. Pardon me who has the bigger arm but takes more risks. You can see the vision for indianapolis strong rushing attack very good defense. Don't turn it over. Just how the student point. Guard the offense the problem if you get to the regular season is the schedule is a nightmare. I mean their first five games. All five of them are against teams. That had double digit wins last season. That has only happened field two other times in. nfl history. So it's just a one week situation until went skits back. Obviously there's still uncertainty about the timeline of return. I can see why indianapolis would be willing to ride with either elegant or easing but beyond that. I'd be nervous if i was a cold fan yen. Let's not make light of you. Know frank is doing here because i look at it as looking what i do and not necessarily what i say. You know the fact that you know etlinger is taken at this at this juncture in preseason is very telling and i don't think that's good news for jacob easson that type of move with eleanor getting the reps on first team and i just look at just piggyback off of menas talking about you look at this this seen. It has one of the best ross in the national football league office line good rushing attack defense got weapons on the outside at the end of the day. I think it's starting to assess the situation saying look who's gonna give us the best chance to manage the situation to winstons back because that is a brutal early schedule. And i think that's why the move is a little telling right. Now what we're seeing with. The with the alternate another first reps while we know frank reich is accustomed to making some unsuspected starts in a pinch during his own playing career. And all of a sudden we may have an unexpected start percent etlinger to begin the season if carson wentz not available all right. Let's go from one rookie quarterback to another rookie quarterback with more pedigree to take a look at this week. Matchup the jets second overall. Pick twenty zach wilson and third overall. Pick in two thousand eighteen. Sam darnold are projected. Just start against each other if it happens to be the first time in. Nfl history but a quarterback drafted the top. Three has made his first. I guess another top three quarterback drafted by this same franchise all right so we know that wilson's going to be the jet starter as the team had the least experienced quarterback group in the league until recently when it signed juryman quarterback josh johnson but as is the case with many rookies of has already so far wilson during training camp. Here's head coach. Robert sala with his most rookies for especially for everyone. It's gonna get worse before it gets better it just it is what it is. There's just a lot of things that happen. I mean there's there's a reason why being a rookie as hard in this league. There was a hall of famer yesterday. That was inducted in that. Had a seventy one quarterback rating his rookie year. It's not easy to play quarterback in this league as a as a rookie quarterback but But it is. It is going to get worse before it gets better. And but he's at that point now where he's going to be able to stack up days and we got all the utmost confidence in him and his ability and his ability to figure out The mistakes and correct them and get to a better place daime. My twitter timeline is still with trevor lawrence. Trae lands and justin fields highlights. What do you make of the narrative around jets camp zach. Wilson is perhaps struggling. Well let's i don't think people should be impacting particularly jet fans in this situation. Listen we're talking about a rookie quarterback this coming into this lee and if we go back in time we saw when patrick mahomes was rookie in training camp that someone is saying some of the same things will be insane about. Patrick mahomes hold onto the football rough days at camp. You know just in herbert's same thing was said about justin urban last year you know as far as the rough going and trying to get these things tend to happen and this just teen particularly on offense. They might be one of if not the youngest group in national fully. There's going to be probably four rookies. That's going to be major contributed to this. Just offense led by zach wilson. Coach said it's going to be a lot of ups and downs as far as the development of zach wilson. But they're going to ride this thing out knowing that they have the foundation. Pieces are on this offense. Yeah damian that's a great point about the homes and eight. Look it's august tenth right so i feel like i need to lead a breathing exercise. Everybody just down relax. But i also need to say that this might last for a while with zach you know. When he was taken second overall you kind of escape. Some of the scrutiny that we assigned to mack jones and lance fields. Because it was just so obvious for so long the judge. We're going to take him. But if we have scrutinized more. I think we would have spent more time discussing the fact that this was always going to be a challenging transition. Not just from. Byu to the nfl. The level of competition he played but also in college. We talk about him holding on the football. I'm time he had all the time in the world in. Byu behind that offensive line. So of course he's going to have to learn how to get rid of it. Quicker and diagnose what's happening on defense and operate within the structure of mike.

"People out there and also race tech race was around on your day. Did you ever get work race back in the day? The pulse built some bike for me. I used to work at Pomona Suzuki.

Honda team They also do motors suspension for they've done it for. Bama over the years and crisp close and all these guys race dhec Dot Com pulp twenty zero to save with the folks that race tech and helped Dandy Jefferson back in the day all so so then he started bothering you and like back then. Of course you know surgeries wasn't what what it is now so I was taking shots every two months going to on So I could rise couldn't couldn't couldn't impossible. What do you remember about a young Mitch? Payton like what are you? He was the first of all. How many times would you guys have done things back? Then that would get you arrested today. Like one hundred. Yes he he just had no fear. Anything just like you know it. Didn't it just didn't matter? We go into restaurants and do crazy stuff and act like immediate. I mean stuff that now I look back and go. Wow happy but then it was fun. Yeah admit Choi was around. It was a maniac. I mean Troy Did short painting when you met him or was he. Yeah he's racing and starting to paint. He lived in a garage and corona okay and paint a helmet painted. All of this stuff for us. Mitch would give him to paint. But he had no business Mitch Charlie Race Razor Fun Guy. Was He always kind of like out there? A little bit okay. So it hasn't changed that but he was a great starter. Always START UP FRONT. And then somehow like beer would kick in because the night before he probably was out getting the hamlet a little and pretty soon troy's going backwards but he was always out front early. When does he show you like this thing? Called Ero visor like and you just go. Whatever did yeah he he he he came up with some mean he had some cool stuff but he had some weird. Those visors must have made so much money. You you're probably forgot. We had them all of our helmets. so Mitch. Hard worker smart guy. Just I a little bit your sure and I mean well ruthless. In a lot of ways we had he'd have screwdriver fights everyone so where he get mad and he'd sling a screwdriver like in the wall. Like pretty close to you. He never did to me because I think he was scared of a little me and him into it once up at a split Pea Anderson. Okay come back with a race and he was doing his usual. Dickin- around doing something stupid. He wasn't supposed to and. I said look you do that again. And I'M GONNA throw you over that fence on. Offense was right next to the free Bob where he goes. You aren't going to do that. Bob He did it again. I picked him up out of his wheelchair and I pushed him over the fence and I took his wheelchair back to the van and left him. That's Awesome Orleans twenty when you're calm and not being idiot. I'll put you back in your chair. Stay there I don't care there's so many stories about paying back in the day head dares like the nothing for him and troy. We're always dare each other. Do some stupid. They stole some Saad from jump or something right for the East right front where they needed grass role sawed up. And you would think like somebody would look at the you know literally. It was in front where everyone was watching. What are they doing it up on rolling into and then they couldn't take Mitch to jail so he had to drive. These cops made him drive with a cop escorted him like huck dumb in same stuff like that. This is the of pro circuit and obviously husqvarna. He you know he attached himself. He's getting you supporting everything else. Did you think you'd be successful as he is today? Did you always do you? Did you see the genesis or the roots of this guy obviously eighty-six he gets haunted? Pipe and things blow up from there. But you're there before then are you well. I know that Jodi from eight would always tell him. You need to stop work on these Japanese and Mitch is he. Now they're you know they're got a new Bal and this and that and you know finding this and obviously you see what happened but I figured Mitch would be successful because he was going to work and you know just like today you see the guy he gets hurt. Tanny leaves it ninety one and the mechanics for the race team. They I mean there are hard guys. They're working at all there for one Golden. That did you ever. Do you ever remember saying like Oh. I'm going to have a team one day or though he'd never know never got that far. When did you meet jody? And Jimmy Macanese guys back saying. They kind of helped me a lot. You weren't dude. You were like as a kid growing up in Canada. You were in the magazines ton. Yeah they loved you yes. Yeah and that helped me you know. I think I look back. Sometimes I go. I didn't want to be known as the black kid that's racing wanted to be known as a racer but that helped me get to where I could have just been another guy when you talked about speaking about being African American or black Speak does it. When did you start seeing racism like you said not back then but is this pro days like this kind of stuff where your local and national to you like that one in Florida people that seems odd given and what are you doing here and Like at the superman spectators racers panics but spectators. Yes motocross back then the pits. You are in a kate. Know this but you didn't have vans and stuff around. We'll the end. Yeah Vince Cage and you had a four by six foot area. That's where you put all your toolbox. All your stuff was in that area and people around you are around the outside and people could walk up and say something. Yeah and people would snip but for me. Just hear it a little for me. I learned a long time ago because my dad and what my dad grew up in. I mean I'd I grew up in the dead. South went through all kinds of racism. The real stuff well like diving in a pool. Everyone in the pool gets out except for him. Oh really yeah me. Kinda stuff you hear about this but it's unbelievable for me it meant nothing gets as I don't care I mean 'cause I always try and tell myself that there's only a few people that I put stock into it. They say something about me. That will hurt me otherwise I don't you know who are you to tell me some wasn't there another African American guy. What was his David Maclean with Maclean? Maclean Robert Mrs there. He they had an article in one. Racer X I think. That was a while ago with this guy but David Maclean was really good. Yeah I remember being. Yeah so the League is they. Let you test them. Bikes and stuff. You got to be around him and and that helped me a lot of doors and and I'll say like now I look back and I would tell kids today that you have to. You have to speak about yourself. Yeah and I was never that guy. Yes never that guy to do that. Yeah I always figured if I did good enough is GONNA help. Yeah that's the way it is. Yeah and I was never good at it. I didn't want the spotlight on me and I just wanted to go do my thing and and you know. Hopefully someone take notice but you can't be that way. Yeah Yeah Yeah Well. The guys would have helped you for sure. Yeah as far as that goes back right Interesting to they loved you man. You're all I remember all the time interview and he's coming back knee hurts. He's coming back. Yeah so the last results in the vote was your ninth at Saddleback. Five hundred good result. What happens after that? Do you keep racing. Have I think that was the end of Pro Circuit? One thousand nine hundred five I if I remember correctly raised some local stuff about Honda. Where your needs your knee? My knee was bad. Now by that time had had a couple of surgeries to and it just would swallow up and just get really bad and and like you said. The technology wasn't so great yellow it The doctor said look. You gotta quit so race. I think. Eighty five a little local eighty six touch eighty seven. I got a cow and wrote it a couple of Times said doctor had done. Yeah you you're having trouble walking interviews and I'm like I got to be done and so I just said and I just like. How old were you at that point? I think I was twenty three. Yeah so I was. GonNa say he's Kinda young to be done raising. Yeah and I just decided like I just gotta be overtime as lulled or not but even still twenty five twenty five got to be done and at the time I hit start working for my friends. Oh you were doing down short. Wow after when I first got hurt you were at that place from eighty four until until I left for Husky. Yeah Oh shit yeah yeah But so that was the actual source of income to the point where you're very and But for me like I. The doctor said you start riding bicycles. You GotTa Start Walking. Don't run you know for me. That's what I did. I started riding bicycles in and trying to get my niece stronger. And it's been better never actually had a surgery on again. I know I've had. Oh more than Oh okay. So I've had to on the other one. Yeah so But Karla like meniscus Forty L. Unease just the usual right. Do boost up right But I didn't ride from that time. Eighty six I think I wrote the Elsinore Grand Prix Gareth Myles Garrett called me or my gear called me and asked me to do some with some race that rex and John Mara did it was like a VAT race at Paris. Okay and I think was one thousand nine hundred ninety three. Yeah and so I went and got a Yamaha from him like on a Thursday. And then raced. It had no idea arm pump like Oh yeah and got killed and I was like I'm over this now. Mara race down the world vets number one on one hundred troy. Yeah and one. I remember like ninety ninety.

Appreciate an also spoke to have my in studio guests for this one on one podcast former Southern California. Hot Shoe Factory Husqvarna Ryder. At one point I believe now working backward Husqvarna in the marketing end of things Andy Jefferson. What's up Bro? Show how are you? I'm wonderful how `bout you are coming in. Yeah Hey we had a good ride today on beautiful. I've really loved it. Yeah you're a big mountain bike guy road bike and mountain bike or mountain both out and we ride at lunch every day. I try to put miles in and just have a good time with it you you. You put a lot of miles and when you were racing. Were you a big trainer or is this something that came later. No we always. I always trained. I was because I I think for me when I was racing. I had to train because I wasn't talented. Let's say I mean so. I had to be in better shape and luckily for me I love training love running at the time and I love bicycling did a little bit of everything so from years of motoring. How is your body now? Like for my body's okay. My knees are a little bit. Yeah a little bit suspect sometimes but yeah my body's pretty good too too bad you were trying to new Husqvarna e bike. That's coming out in the fall. Our balancing that. We have some tests bikes over here. They just playing around with and and you know firstly because you have the intense. I and I'm not much of an e bike guys. I WanNa go to a guy as a lot of miles on them and got to ride with you today and see how the differences maybe in the versus what I have and and Yeah so we're just doing some testing on the bikes Yamahas. One coming out too. So yeah I think that's an avenue were some of the. Oem's are looking at you know. Hey what can we do here? So I think it's the next step for people you know you have a dirt bike and maybe you don't WanNa go out train. Yeah and you want to just go ride and to me. The e bikes the perfect. I mean and I'll tell you this is only my third right on it and after my first to ride I was kind of like I don't really don't but after today had a great time. Yeah we we hammered some trails. Pretty good and perfect if you do that and you made that comment when we were stopped you said out here on a regular bike. You'd be suffering. is unless you're elite elite. Guy. You'd be suffering if you on a regular bike and this just puts the fun and that's exactly it right like you're still getting a good workout. Think my heart rate today was like one forty five or something. So you're getting a good workout and you're able to go much further and have more fun and then you know you're not suffering and then tomorrow you can go back and ride again. Yeah didn't suffer. Yeah and and still you know we all try to run our heart rates and we probably all do too much heart rate. Doesn't have to be high to get a good work. You need to be at a steady PACE PACE. Today was perfect. Yeah like my buddy Paul per season shape and he's got a he's got an e bike any runs it in trailer boost because he has so much fun for me. I'm trying to lose weight. I'm trying to get better shape. You're in great shape so for me. I run an echo because I want to suffer. I want to lose weight. I WANNA grind right but there is that option late in rides and we had one section today that I hated and I told her I hate it. I just bumped up the trail. I got through the section. That's uphill technique techy rock stuff. And then I was able to go back down to ego and it's a perfect example of why he bike works great right and like. I said just like you're saying is for those people that you know. You're not out there. You don't you're not going to try and be next triathlete the marathon guy and all this. Cr- you just want to go ride and have fun. That's what is right. Husqvarna marketing for you. How long have you been there for been well? I was with the original. Let's say Husqvarna owned by BMW. Three years I started there in two thousand ten okay and then the company was sold to the corporation or Peer Industries owns. All of it was sold. I think in two thousand thirteen twelve thirteen and then so I moved over there so now if you WANNA count total. I've been there about eight or nine years. Which is I always think it's funny because you made your name riding Husqvarna against Japanese brands. When they were no longer the Great Husqvarna. Everybody grew up with and you were alone guy on Husky and then you end up working for years later. It's a full and for me. You know an like to be back with Husky and just the linear to the name. That was when I had a chance to get this job. I just said I have to do it right. I and it wasn't like I had my previous job for twenty seven years. I didn't have to go anywhere and I made pretty good money. Yeah and I worked for Office Products Company. Okay HOLD COPIERS. Fax Machine that kind of stuff and it was a friend of mine's a my childhood friends families visit early. Then they sold out okay and I didn't have to leave but when this came up and a guy your roots. I don't like I even talked to my wife and I said look. I really WANNA do this. I'm I'm like Oh copiers and I'm over this right now and I want to get back into the industry and luckily I got a job. Yeah so now when they were switched from BMW ownership and by the way those BMW LOOKING. Husqvarna were underrated. Yeah that's cool. Look W out. Yeah but when they switched over. Ktm were you nervous about losing your job where you come to you like. Were you stress in a little bit? Not a little bit but not much I I was and let me say for me and it's weird. I guess I've been in the right place at the right time. That's basically what it was. I was the guy at the time I did all the parts for Husqvarna and I'm GONNA call it. Bmw Escobar all parts all accessories. Yeah all the after sales so all that stuff had to be moved. Yeah so they I mean in a way. They couldn't get rid of me wherever I was lucky. I so I did all that. I made all that move from the stuff from it was up in New Jersey. Oh okay all down to Ohio Imon Tori and stuff away. That's obsolete all that stuff so then I came into the office and then it was like what am I gonNa do right John Eric. Burleson came to me and says hey we we need you to continue with this for now but we need an offered manager for the Husky Road team. And I'm like do you WanNa do that. Great Heck Yeah. That was last. Oh that's cool though. I don't think I remember you doing that. Yeah Yeah I mean I did it for Kimmy Wagons Timmy. Andrew Delong won the National Enduro Championship for the first time since nineteen six ski so since like Terry Cunningham Terry Alaska Paul. I pulled out exactly. It was pretty good and but I got to champion. Jacob Argue about one a championship from that year and I did it for like a year and a half almost two years and but the hard part was at the time I was still doing the part so There was one year that I traveled. Forty three weekends out of the really. All your wife's just at Fox the facts and copier writing and so that was kind of tiring and then it came up. They needed immediate guy because they didn't have anyone so I said sure and Timmy. Was there became the team manager or off road and I went over to media. How do you like the media things how do you? How do you enjoy that? I tell people every day. It's another one of those things in the right place the right time. It's the greatest job in the company. I really yes like today. I get to talk about dirt bikes bicycles. I get to do that every day. Yeah and someone pays me or I get to go riding right my boss. I can ride all. Yep Go to the he. He inspires us. He says go to the track and go ride. You're not talking about Moen Tom Owen. He's inspired you. I don't know if those words us with Tom Muskie. Yeah he's he's really a he's a different guy but he's one of those people like he makes me laugh. I have so many Moen Stories. Katya when you get in with him. He's the nicest guy from the outside G I get him with him. He's like your job is to go riding. Yeah take people right so as much as I can. I take my guys. We variety whether it's street bikes or dirt bikes out ever the we all know. Katie must've owned by the same company. And certainly had some Husqvarna people yell at me over the years for because I'm just like look Katie. Anderson Rides a Katie. And so what? We don't need to get into that. But how much different? How much differing philosophies or or divisions are there between Katie? I'm an Husqvarna when it comes to media duties for you you in the KTM guy. I don't even know well it would be and that's the thing now. I'm the Guy Oh you are. Atm Guy Gas Gas Guy. I'm the Husqvarna one okay. So there isn't really any now. There is now so I felt like when they made. Roger like the overseer Katie Mogo Husqvarna logo and. They'll soon have a gas gas. I would imagine I felt like when they did that with Roger. They relaxed their philosophy of like. Hey we're two different company right and I think at first they were trying to establish what what Husqvarna was going be. Yeah and it was really. I mean we were adamant we weren't allowed to park next to each other. We weren't I mean. Even though we work together you see till but outwardly wanted to make sure some kind of separation. We couldn't talk about the Waikato's thing that would happen. Somebody's I got a few things and I said I don't care right. You can't fool me. That's right donges by Jason. And you're one hundred percent right it is. It's the same but our philosophies in marketing are today are different wholly opposite so with. Ktm is like the Color Orange It's ready to race. It's in your face. It's I'm GonNa Win Barn Husqvarna completely on the other spectrum of where the fun guys like. We want almost boutique. We WanNa be fun we want. We don't want we're racing WANNA win. There's no doubt about it. But by the same token we want to go on the desert and take a bunch of Ri- and that has nothing to do with racing. And when you look at Jason as a as a start versus you guys like a different Dean Wilson Right. 'cause WE TRY TO BE WE WANNA be different brand and and you know the the thing that you run into when especially when you have two brands like this as you start getting a lot of you know eating away at the other brand my this brand. We're we're trying to stay away. I I don't want to go after a CPM person. I want to go after Honda..
"jefferson" Discussed on Talking Tech
"Okay so it's an a day on talkie text chatting red-green is GonNa Grill Jefferson Graham. I'm in Los Angeles and Shannon is in the Washington DC area. That's right we're both quarantining. So Jefferson I've been thinking of you under these quarantine conditions. I just know that you're a person who is constantly out taking video photographs. Interviewing people podcast. How have you been holding up in just about six weeks? Quarantine Rough I. I went out last week And I went to the beach and I photographed and I got a lot of grief from my mother and my wife on it but I really wanted to. Just get out again. The idea was that I started this little video project of just pictures of waves period. Just waves no talking no music nothing but waves and I read the two beaches rope and so I went down and photograph them to mice shock. There were hundreds of people. They're having a good time mid week. So that's not the image that we've been been told but I really missed out there with a camera and I can't wait to do more of it and and sit in a restaurant that's what I want more than anything else. Yeah it's been really difficult for a lot of people and I think it's probably I wanted to know if he felt a little concerned or how you were feeling when you were taking the picture to the people on that really crowded breach. What was it like for you emotionally? It was I thought there it is you know and But I stood far enough away that I wasn't getting very close. The football game through me seeing those about fifteen young boys playing football tackle football on the beach did not seem like the wisest thing in the world to do right gotten into wanting to be attacked journalists. And what was your first assignment but had a huge impact on you in the world attack reporting. So it's a two fold question will first of all remember that when I was thirteen. I got my first camera and my first guitar. So that that set me down the path and I've always been into new technology. I was one of the first to have a VCR so thirteen hundred dollars. I spent for VCR and loved every minute of it because I was a TV fanatic. A Mazer and so I covered td for many years here USA Today before I covered TV. I covered the birth of home video of at the Hollywood reporter. So I I was the cable. Tv video editor and so is in detect. They are on all laser discs in all the new things and so I said I got tired of covering TV. There was a beat open for covering tech. I raised my hand from the first day. I did something. I don't remember what the article was but I knew that was it and that was twenty years ago and you've never looked back. Never looked back some of the highlights was going to interview the founders of Google. At at a time that I was so comfortable in my body that I went to the interview in green shorts in Orange. T shirt something today. That's fantastic worry about your fashion show. I want hear more about your fashion choices in those early years Well there was no video camera. Running Didn't care now. Now it's always a a plane shirts but naps Yup. A t-shirt just doesn't cut it. I think that's right. Yeah I I was on zoom call in time in quarantine where someone was presenting an award to a colleague of Mine and they were wearing sweatshirt and right. Now I'm just wearing a t shirt so I'm not WanNa talk but it is. I think it's still important to dress a certain way. When you're on a zoom call. Yeah I would agree dress for success. Totally totally so Shannon Rate Green Washington D. C. Actually Virginia.

That is radio TOPIARY DOT FM. Thank you so much. This is the Memory Palace. I'm the dinners. Were so very Jefferson. The food mix of continental indistinctly new world that makes the Thomas Jefferson claimed as distinctly American Virginia. Hams sweet potatoes corn born in Accra. Chris Pippen apples prepared with a French flair for Cossiga techniques and recipes sauces. He'd so enjoy enjoyed during his years in Paris. As an envoy of the newly United States prepared alongside French ingredients almonds anchovies cheese and raisins and nectarines Koreans in musters of varying shades. In Tang dinner at Monticello would started for. The guests would often find their host already in the dining room. It's walls painted chrome yellow. Jefferson would be reading a book pulled from the shelves by the fireplace philosophy. Zoology architecture texture religion politics the natural scientists who still very Jefferson. The contents of the books would spill out into the dinners themselves. He I love delivery table free-flowing conversations tails well told vigorous debate ideas presented in refined all helped by the wine that flowed live freely to shipped over from Europe or does and Maderas Chianti riesling grapes. That grew on fog hung hills that roll down to the Rhine by the pictures on those yellow walls. Copies of old masters Grand European landscapes alongside American ones Niagara the natural the bridge harpers ferry. Just as grand. We're meant to start the conversation valued so on travel on geology. And Trade on America's Carr's places and its place in the world because these dinners always so very Jefferson. We're so American by his design shooing the British formality. It never ending courses rule bound in ritualized. Hoity toity instead. Appetizers main dishes would be laid out on the table. Diners honors could choose what to eat with. What in win when they wanted more more courses more French wine. There were more of Jefferson's designs in the dining room in Monticello were amenities of his own. Invention special dumb waiters by which bottles editions could come up from the kitchen in the cellar or be sent back down special. Missile doors and the walls that would revolve would feel like magic and reveal shelves with cakes and pastries plates. To come or go guess would marvel at. They're hosting genuity the some grumble later in their diaries. They didn't appreciate having to get up and serve themselves. Jefferson would say that the presence of servants would disrupt up the rhythm of conversation the free flow of ideas among free people in free nation. While he and his guest spoke on poetry on liberty and as is the shelves revolved as though by magic is the dumb. Waiters disappeared down below. His diners to be interrupted were overheard by the enslaved people working below or behind the revolving walls the people who had shocked the corn and time the souffle chip the ice had called it out from the Ice House in crafted the brick from which was built it stacked them according to their masters design. Who cleaned the plates in stoke the fires and who had learned proper planning from James. James Hemmings an enslaved man. Jefferson brought with him to Paris so he could learn French cooking and bring it back to Monticello when he returned to Virginia where he lived with his sister. Sally Allie Jefferson owned and fathered children by whom he also owned new catalog. The winds Polish the silver slaughtered. The pigs hung their bodies up to dry work.

The name Monticello means Little Mountain in Italian a fitting description of the location where the self taught architect chose to build his home construction on the forty three room mansion began in seventeen seventy shortly after Jefferson was first elected to public office. It went through many designs and redesigns and wasn't finished until eighteen own.

Thank you thank you very much but I think about like a plane like six hours so it's like they just sit there here's a meal like more drinks some snacks and you're like your six hours watching movies and television shows yeah you're just like yes give me more food in that manning passing out like dumbbells to people like hey do some curls somebody was like well you know one thing that I've done my travels I try not to eat on planes that's fucking next to impossible six hours food prep and bring on L. A. New York flight especially like a red red is so you say you prep food bring sandwich that's adorable I don't I don't prep it bring it to eat it at the kitchen and every deal with reading rainbow shirt kid duct tape in the corner there you caleb and it's quiet Ah what who would you see like obviously shack comes to mind is like one of the guys who could just eat anything because he was burning so much stuff and still but like appetite was a certain guys that burn that many calories but couldn't go to town because their bodies just weren't adding up now there's a Lotta guys right there's a lot of guys tablets yeah your metabolism the older you see that when guys are super young they spend their whole first part of their career trying to bulk up you look at Jaanus is done with Braun dead at the the second right but then all of a sudden you see them get later in their career and then they try and lose weight right because it's that pounding and you're new to slim up Dwight Howard is nice skinny as he's ever been trying to get some of that lift back you're trying to lighten the load on your joints so it's like you just have this evolution of guys and you see it now because we watch it much for thirty years you guys are super skinny because they'll get drafted in one thousand nine hundred and they spend that first part of their career trying to build wait Jaanus as buck and a huge Jack Jack is that that's just the evolution so do we all have hired Tom Brady's trainer and then they can play Robert Kado ice cream I'd rather do I'll just accept Aziz time I'm not doing avocado now because you because according to your wikipedia page and I and I would like you're not you unretired right that was the guy retired the sample we retire retirement I want a championship that lasted a good forty eight hours sure because they told me they were amy more money to come back and I thought we'd had I thought we were going to be the best team we win a championship again fucking Kevin Durant went to went to Goldens now happens do you guys around the league talk the same way we saw on like the talking head shows everyone's like do you join the guys that you're trying to be or see this I was not I'm I was never a great player and I think that's more or less good claire very good player the NBA a very good. I think I'm a pretty good twenty four hour fitness plan you probably are thank right but I will say this conversation for the great players to have that tried like battling each other for legacy whether it's Lebron our staff or Kobe doesn't Mj like those are the conversations though that the next level guys are like well fuck it that's unfair when Ray Allen went to the Miami Heat yeah I know what the Celtics do out here battling for second that's it you really think that that happened I knew we had a chance but it was like those guys were so good and Kevin is Kevin is so good news and I do you get a can you hear the people that are and I just saw you think it was on the jump go to what's it got in the clippers big hair mantras and you're like dude this why I love you on the shows and why you're so good a good conversationalist but you just like shoot people straight and you also can relate to players and non players but you were like dude come on be straight with me when you got why am PG you were like all right if we don't make it to the finals you said it's a wash of a season and he was like I mean it because it's a wash season it's like I mean we all make the playoffs probably and you're like dude it's like yeah it's it'll be a bummer like it'll be won't matter and look I have no problem with him as he still a young player and he's very very good I'm no problem with him saying that externally but inside that locker room I know the true like you got a guy like Paul George one of the most I told the best players in the league and the echo why the.

"Like. That's the tradition and Jefferson is kind of like just gobsmacked right. I mean this is this is now do exactly right. This is the president of Yale you know being like Oh yeah the bones the giants from bibles and Jefferson just like no no what there's got to be. There's got to be a better explanation for this so that's that's sort of that sort of the start of this for Jefferson right a he's some as background is lower and obviously in politics two was he actually doing this old lacquer armchair over the actually going on expeditions and Hanes on stuff so yes so Jefferson yeah so Jefferson's education has yet so he goes the College of William and Mary and he studies mathematics and philosophy and he but he also develops this really deepened abiding love for you know what they didn't have the term term then Beret Bo Bo we would today call science right of just like all all stripes <hes> and what is it. They caught natural philosophy. Is that the natural philosophy at the time yeah so or you know I mean if you had a more of a religious Bentos like natural theology you know so but yeah basically the study of nature and <hes> and Yeah Jefferson yeah he develops his very deep abiding love love for Science and Jefferson was was methodical. I mean you know this was not what this is important part of the story to right because I mean so far is basically a professional scientists right Jefferson is not Jefferson is a as a politician he works as a lawyer and then eventually gets involved in politics with the American revolution and becomes ambassador and and eventually Vice President President etc but you know he's he's not a slouch about this and so in in the case of <hes> of like these bones right so he finds out these bones are in Kentucky right there basically justly roading out of the ground round out this salt lick and so Jefferson wants to actually see them. He wants to look at them for himself. Now he doesn't go down to Kentucky because he's otherwise occupied but <hes> and this is a great part of the story <hes> so he gets somebody somebody to go get the bones for him and so the first person he dispatches his actually Daniel Boone the legendary frontiers. Who's who yeah what else do we know? We had a coon skin hat. That's right. I'm so one of the People's Daniel Boone one of the other people is this Guy General George Rogers Clark <hes> who was the commander army and the West and it's Clark who actually ends up agreeing to <hes> to go down there <hes> get a bunch of these bones gathered them up and ship them back to <hes> to Jefferson <hes> up north or up in Virginia sorry not north but yet will further north <hes> and Jefferson Jefferson and so Jefferson is able to to examine these bones for the first time and the thing that really strikes him about them is <hes> well so so not surprisingly one of the things that so he fiercely disagrees with boof on about them because bef- on I knew about these bones to write it had been a French explorer who had originally found them so fond of course knew about them and so the thing that really struck everybody about them was that there these huge bones and their teeth in there and so some of the teeth are clearly tusk's like those of an elephant right <hes> but the other thing are the molars right they have these mass dedicating teeth or what they called grinders back then and these are not like teeth that are found in in modern elephants and so there's so that's the first big mystery right because the assumption is that these are all the bones of one animal and so it's like well what kind of animal has both tusks and grinding grinding teeth because it's not any kind of animal that we know about and Buffon answer is actually. He thinks that you know they're probably not the same animal. He thinks they're two different animals. He thinks the tusks are those of an elephant and the teeth.
"jefferson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I'm gonna be really honest, and I do, and it's funny that you say that about watch much my language, I feel bad like I had no idea. I would the way they did the the players should Beaune in. It's not a knock on them. Like, I know anytime I say a word I need to any this soom. It's going to be recorded and put out there. But it was one of those things where you're talking and you're kinda cracking jokes with some guys. And you don't know what they're just gonna use one clip. I really did not remember Cussing that much like I located that professional as a person that really doesn't cuss that much. But it was more of like when we were describing, and I really kind of took my back to that place in that moment. That's just kind of just how it was. So I I regret a little bit that it's gone viral. And I'm like. Doing it as much, but it just part of it. I don't care that you were Cussing. I'm asking about the actual content of the story saying that oh bleep. I better. Get a thank God. I don't want any part of this that kind of honest, even though you explain it very well right here on air, but given that kind of honesty, and that kind of sound bite that it is is that a story that you would have told if you were still an active player with. Saying that I want. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Hundred percent anybody. That knows me knows that. But you know, I am kind of unapologetically honest. And I think anybody that knows me my teammates like that. They don't question whether or not I thrive for big moments, or you know, because that's all I'm really matters. I don't care. What fans? I don't care. What media thing? I don't care what my team thing and Jason Kidd or Kenyon Martin. Or LeBron James all of these guys? I firmly believe if they were like, hey, would you go to battle with Richard? Could you trust Richard on the floor and a big moment? Would you give him the ball? If you needed to in a big moment. I like to believe all of them say, yes, because they all have and we've all been successful in certain spaces. So I don't really care to be honest. And you know, it's like, you know, talent, you know, people saying like, hey, you know, I cried when my kid was born or stuff like that. Look, if you're having a motion moment, or you're giving something like brutally honest like that's just the reality. Situation. However, the pundits want to dissect it and say, what do you think about a player saying, this, do you think less or more? It's like, I really don't care. What people think about me? And that I wanna get a minute from this guy, Richard Jefferson with us, and we hope to talk to you again on Monday. We're going to talk to me. I mean, I mean that was a good question too. By the way, don't don't take my answer the wrong way. Thanks RJ. Try hard. Stop calling him on. It's a little too chummy. We're trying to do journalism around here. So RJ, what can you tell us about Kyrie Irving? And that's like a minute of undestood honesty is someone who's been around all that stuff. I think there's a lot of different emotions, obviously, I get a ton of tax when people that were in that circle. And I got a ton of people that are outside that circle questioning it. I think there was there is a little bit of sadness. There's a little bit of you know, frustration. I think you always say. This you look at you know, Shaq and Kobe were they they come back together when they're forty years old and they're talking about. Yeah. We were probably a little too egotistical. At that moment that we probably we stayed together probably would have won one or two more championship. But in that moment, all they care about is their own future. And they all have their own destinies kind of change. And I think, you know, Cairo Irving for him. He did understand because he was in gun guy. You can't ask a young player to look at life through an older players win. Right. Like, you just you can't right? I didn't understand when I was in my first year the today going to the NBA finals, and I see these guys like crying and our second year, excuse me. And I see these guys crying..
