"john barr" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain
"Time for life for Larry Nassar but there are so many other people involved in this that have not yet really been held accountable for their role and I wonder if that is part of the reason for this book. Dan Is it that you've you've reported on it but there's just more to tell absolutely. Yeah I think the the sort of sentencing hearings were learning. Outsor- was sentenced to one hundred and seventy five years in prison. That was the main one that a lot of people paid attention to in January twenty eighteen. And I think that's when most of the world that's aware of that story became aware of it was because it was kind of a a viral moments in the court room And John and I've been covering for you know for more than a year at that point. John for fifteen sixteen months and I think a couple of months after that settle down me had a couple of conversations with each other and decided that there was so much that happened that led up to those moments that people might not understand How much hard work and perseverance went into getting into that courtroom so we wanted to to tell that story and explain to people how hard and rare that that moment of justice invalidation was for those women and then also explain all of the things they had to overcome which were the enablers that were the the whole culture and system. That allowed necessarily get away with this that we felt that. If you weren't paying close attention for a long time you might not have fully understood. Well that's part of it of course right that it would be easier and more palatable to believe that this terrible person had been caught and that meant it was the end of this but really. What's the larger conversation is not just about? Larry Nassar but what is the culture that we live in that allows for things like this to go on all over the place beyond just Michigan State and gymnastics John You name the book start by believing and it is Larry. Nassar's crimes the institutions that enabled him in the brave women who stopped a monster. But tell me about. Start by believing in why that's the name you went with. Well Rachel denhellender was the first woman to come forward and publicly accused Larry Nassar of sexual assault when she filed a police report with Michigan. State Police Back in August of twenty sixteen and when she had her first meeting with Detective Lieutenant Andrew Month for at the end of the meeting. Mumford had a small so the white paper on what she took down. Rachel's contact information and other top of that look like taper. She wrote the words. Start by believing and when we heard that anecdote. We thought this would be a perfect title for a book and that story along made it perfect title for a book so again. I would do in a situation like that. We do the word. Start by believing to see if anybody else had a book name. Start by believing or just what would come up and turns out. There's a very established program called stuff by believing it was started by a woman named Joanna archambault with the group and violence against women and national they do training and advocacy work on behalf of survivors of sexual assault and And the whole point of the program is when sexual assault survivors are greeted with skepticism by law enforcement by their families by society at large there denied an opportunity to heal and when all of those at the teams can greet sexual assault survivors from position of believing it just makes for much better outcomes and so we were thrilled. We kind of had a little bit of moments of doubt not knowing if the group would embrace the title of our book but we reached out and they wholeheartedly embraced the title. And we'll just thrilled that naming bookstore by believing. Can you know by extension? Bring some great attention to to work that they do. I wrote a story about why we victim blame surrounding Larry Nassar but the larger conversation and really it was inspired by conversations that I have on social media that disappoint me so much because of the immediate response that people have to not believe women when it comes to issues of domestic violence and sexual assault and I wanted to understand why people would feel that way and fascinating leader. There's actually a pretty widely known theory that's called the just world fallacy. Which is the idea that if you believe that people who follow the rules that are good people they will not have bad things happen to them and so if you don't make the same quote unquote mistakes as the people who are subject to this cruelty. Then you won't face the same fate It of course isn't true. There are plenty of good people doing all the right things that still suffered terrible tragedies and cruelty but it's it's a safe place for people to go instead of believing that the world is unfair. And you could. You can be subject to some of these things regardless of your actions when Dan. You're you're writing about the culture that exists in and why it's important to start by believing what other reasons have you heard or explanations for why in our society. We have a tendency to victim blame and to go to that. I Yeah I think that's a great question and one that we wrestled with in writing the book and I think there's you know within the sportsworld. There's definitely just the sense of tribalism. I think that rears its head very quickly and people never give it a second thought if you come after their team or their community or or whoever it might be but one of the things that we came across beyond that especially with the sexual abuse and crimes that are sort of unthinkable heinous ugly that we wanna believe in you know similar to what you just said we want to believe in the goodness of other people and it seems that someone could be that evil so if we're presented with an alternate plausible solution of what may have actually happened. We tend to think in that way. I think if Larry Nassar was a master at anything it was in giving people a plausible excuse for what he was doing whether that was coaches or medical personnel or train police investigators or the gymnasts themselves he found ways to give people another reason another way to look at what he was doing in an option to think that maybe it wasn't the worst possible scenario. Yeah and I think you mentioned also in sports specifically there. Is this desire to believe that if someone is achieved a lot at something. They're celebrity and music or sports or otherwise that must mean also that they're a good person and that we feel like we know them so that we want to believe them more than whoever the anonymous person is who is accusing them of something. And how do you even express to someone sort of the illogical nature of that John? The idea that you that you know that someone is a good person simply because they're good at sports. Well look if I mean. If you're applying that example to the case of Larry Nassar He. He also had the power of the white coat right. He had the power of the medical profession. And and there's just this unbelievable instinct and all of us to trust doctors and that was by no means the only thing he used to manipulate a girls and young women and their parents and coaches and really everybody he also used. The force of his personality in his personality was very nonthreatening. It was Kinda goofy. He was the guy who was the friendly person. The the friendly year in these gyms. The coaches were often abusive and ruled the roost through intimidation and fear He was the guy who brought gymnasts who will denied food and whom were afraid to eat. He brought them snacks. So the interesting thing was kind of a fascinating thing. I was to hear so many survivors. Larry Nassar talk about how they loved him and how apart of them still loves him today. And there's sort of this economy where he could be that person simultaneously. Be this monster who did heinous things to them and he could be both of those things at the same time. I'm not so sure that answers your question but it was sort of an interesting storyline. To explore warden. Yeah and Dan. I think. Part of that is to kind of the heartbreak that a lot of us felt for the gymnasts who said they didn't even really understand that they were being abused until came out and spoke out about it and then they reflected on their own experiences with Larry Nassar and realized that they had victims. Do you get into that in the book. And and how difficult is it to talk to someone about those moments of realization and the complicated feelings that they might have about Larry and this love? They still have from despite knowing what he done. Yeah and I think that speaks a bit too. Just how convincing of a manipulator he was. It wasn't just people that had heard complaints and decided ignore them. He convinced the women that he was assaulting that he wasn't assaulting them A lot of it is because of that. The facade built up and some of the most heartbreaking interviews that I did have John and I did were athletes. That felt something must be wrong here. But they believed so much in who Larry was and his expertise as a doctor that they felt. If something was wrong something must be wrong with them and for years. They carried this guilt that they for some reason were dirty. Your head unclean thoughts and this was a problem that they had to deal with. And like you said it wasn't until these reports became public that people fully realized the roots of some of these both mental health issues. They were having and some of them manifested as physical health problems because they just didn't fully understand what happens at that point. Well down the the parents to write and some some of the stories about parents who were in the room and were blocked either by Nasser or or screens or other things. But we're technically in the room with their daughters while they were being abused and how we would use that on both ends the daughter would say well my mom's right there so this must be fun in the payer would say my daughter seems fine so nothing must be going on. Besides a regular routine treatment those interviews I imagine would be tough to for the guilt that they might feel and not having known what was going on. Yeah absolutely I mean again. Those were some of the toughest ones Speaking to a couple of different parents remember Jonah. Nice sitting at a at a coffee shop and Eric Coffee Shop in Kalamazoo Michigan talking to Rachel denhellender. Parents you know long after all this had become public and you know us all kind of struggling as Rachel's dad fought back tears Explaining his own guilt that he still held onto after all these years for not fully understanding what was going on and You know there are a lot of examples like that that we got into in the book you know one of them is a woman named Kyle Stevens who wasn't even an athlete. Who FOR YEARS AND YEARS? Her father was convinced that something must have been wrong with Kyle because they knew Larry Nassar and he would never have done this and Eventually you know this guy had some other issues that he was working through. But Kyle floats that eventually. That was a big factor in her father's decision to to eventually end his own life by by suicide a few years after he accepted the fact that is daughter had been abused by someone considered a good friend. I remember that meeting in the Coffee Shop with the IRS and that was really fairly early on. I think in in our research for the book and you know we in many ways. We've been doing the research for months with our reporting but you know when we kind of officially do that. We were going to be doing a book. And I. I just remember walking out of there at night With this you know you just felt this incredible sense of gratitude for them for taking the time but your heart just ached for these folks you know it. I can't imagine it as as a parent what it must be like knowing that you know you took your child to a doctor thinking that you were getting treated making them well and then something like this happens. The feeling of guilt must be. I can't even begin to fathom what they must be going through John. You know you mentioned some of the qualities about Larry Nassar. That allowed him to individually. Get Away with it or manipulate people whether the victims themselves are those around him. Let's speak to the larger enabling of others and maybe the a couple examples. I know the first reporting were complaints. Were in the ninety S. Right which is heartbreaking to hear when you realize that this abuse was still occurring in two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen but are there moments where there were some real opportunities for this to come out and people completely mishandled the reporting and the claims from some of the girls. Karen has I talked to you now. I'm I'm in lancing covering the trial of former Michigan State University of gymnastics coach. Kathy clay is and you know she was told according to Larisa Boys and another gymnast who has remained anonymous throughout this entire affair. She was told by those two former youth gymnasts in nineteen ninety seven according to them that they were sexually assaulted by Larry Nassar during purported treatment sessions. Both of the women say that they told Clegg's that they were penetrated by Nasser during treatment sessions at Jefferson fieldhouse on the campus of Michigan State University. One of these former gymnast Louis. Boyce was sixteen at the time. Other gyms to hasn't identified herself was fourteen and so they both shared this with Kathy. Clegg as they say on the same day. Back in Nineteen ninety-seven Kathy. Leykis didn't even notify their parents. Catholic Lakers didn't report it to anybody. There's no there's nothing we've found that suggests. She reported it up the chain and now she's on trial for two counts of lying to police because when investigators questioned her about any prior knowledge about Larry Nassar. Touching gymnasts inappropriately joined medical treatment sessions. Klay said no and she now is facing up to four years in prison for two counts of line to believe so and that was just a first. That was just the first time there was another case in nineteen ninety eight involving a softball player. There was a case involving cross country runner. There was a case involving a rower. There was a police. Report filed in two thousand four. That Larry Nassar explained away. Police report filed in two thousand fourteen and on and on and on cow. Stevens is yet another example. She was examined by a psychiatrist from Michigan State University..
The Mystery of the iPhone 6
"Today the mystery of the iphone six but first we need to go back to nineteen o four and the creation of the vacuum tube before the invention of the Internet. We needed computers. And before we had personal computers we needed integrated circuits and before we add integrated circuits. We had vacuum tubes. You get the idea. Vacuum tubes were the electronic electronic circuitry component required to make telephones radio television and work in the nineteen hundreds to put the limitations of the vacuum tube into perspective. I'll describe an early computer. Consider it filled a twenty by forty foot room. Wade's thirty tonnes and used more than eighteen. Thousand Vacuum Tube so as only fifty percent operational because most of the the time. The technicians were replacing burned out tubes. These tubes auden heated up the room to a hundred twenty degrees now. And William William Shockley the so-called father the transistor that transfers through switch that Apple Faisal flow of electronic signals to create ones and Zeros technology. College over time shrank it down to the size of a virus. But how small is that. Here comes the iphone six. For example sample. It uses the a eight chip which is made up of two billion two billion transistors. There's transistors are now created at the ten nanometer level to put this into perspective considered that a sheet of paper is one hundred thousand nanometers thick so in order to create a ten nanometer sheet of paper one would have to slice a single sheet of paper. Ten Thousand Times thinner to reach that ten nanometer level. You can now you see the growth in vacuum to two nanometer transistor now back to William Shockley. When Shockley semiconductor began operations. Everything thing appeared to be going according to plan shortly after opening shop and recruiting the best and brightest engineers across the country Shockley and his former former Bell lab colleagues Walter Bryan and John Barr Dean. Were notified they all had won the Nobel Prize in physics after after the Nobel Prize celebrations. Everything went downhill quickly. Shockley was known as a brilliant engineer but a horrific manager. He put his employees through a battery of test including psychological tests. Intelligent tests even lie detector tests. Shockley also posted employee salaries publicly publicly and recorded phone calls. He was paranoid individual who believed his workers. Were stealing trade secrets and sabotaging projects. So therefore he wouldn't share findings with his research staff at an insult injury. Shockley was a racist who believe blacks were genetically inferior was subpar implore IQ. So they shouldn't have kids in one thousand nine hundred fifty seven. The aircraft Shockley semiconductor lab started up. The division reached thirty employees. Eight eight of the employees Sheldon Roberts. Eugene Kleiner Victor Greenwich Chair last Julius Blank. Cheen Hornet Robert. Noyce and Gordon Moore. Finally said enough is enough and decided to mutiny. Was the best operation for them. You could say the rest is history. They went on to form Fairchild

He played with with with Detroit and Atlanta he had forty to advance had four hits. That's a batting average of ninety five. So if you believe in my theory of the law of average, he will hit better than that. Then it's a good acquisition. He's on the uptick is on the uptick. He's on ten I guess Larry's playing around on the internet here. John bar is still going to be with the giants. But we don't know maybe he's changing roles or. Yeah. Hang Schulman says I just ran in ran into recently replaced. Giants scouting director. John is part of the giants contingent in Las Vegas full scope of his if he's duties going forward is TVD city is no animus, here's the quote from John bar. I just want to win another World Series. He understands how baseball works thirty four years in the biz. So John Barr. Who was brought to the giants. Is. It sounds like he's he's no longer the amateur scouting director. There'll be somebody else who has the final say on the amateur draft. But he doesn't sound like he's going anywhere. And he's going to stay in the organizations, and I'll say man, he's hell, yes. Any really if you go McCovey chronicles did a great job over the weekend. Outlining the history of John bars drafts. And you know, this is a guy who I picked with the giants was BUSTER Posey. I mean, you can make the argument that John bar at his profound an impact on those three titles is almost any singular individual not in uniform. So, you know, John bars that has nothing to be nothing to hang his head over on this one, but unfortunately, you know, far on new regime, it's like a political regain, but he's still going. Yeah. You want your own guys in if you're bar? You know, what the hell I mean, if you're amenable to take a different position, everybody's different. Some would say, hey, you're stripping me of my job. I don't wanna look at you anymore. But if he's cool with that you keep getting paid. So, you know, very good for him. I got three other giant notes here. Josh Harrison Friday giants are rumored to be one of five teams interested in Josh Harrison who plays second-place third little left little right. And then this morning came out that the giants have interest in Tyson Ross, the former Bishop O dab kid cow bear Padres been around the block a little bit. But there's one thing far hunts looking for he's looking for starting pitching depth. The number one reason the dodgers have won six straight division titles over the giants. Is there deeper across the board? Forty man rosters deeper and better. And so far Han wants to deepen the giants rotation and Tyson Rossi's interested. There. And it also came out this morning, Gary that the Japanese pitcher that we brought up last week from the CBA lions. You say Kukuchi maybe has the giants as his first choice. Henry showman tweeted that out. Clearly, the giants are very much in on. You say Kukuchi who went seventy three and forty six with a two seven seventy IRA in Japan. Fourteen in four this year ninety six mile an hour fastball. Kind of a big Sean ESTES type curve ball. He's got thirty days to decide which major league team. He wants. Yeah. And what I preface this by saying this, I feel about it. But I think there are a lot of us say great do this do that. But you gotta get you. Gotta get a big guy. He had a big fish. You. Gotta get somebody to roll in here. I just as a giant follower. As a baseball follower. I don't wanna hear we're going to slowly build and go from there. I and again, maybe I'm forgetting. To you. There's only two big fish out there. It's Manny or Harper. Who's your third big? I'm saying so so you're going to be disappointed because they're not gonna if they don't get Manny. And they don't get Harper. Two guys that are rumored to be getting somewhere north of quarter billion dollars guaranteed. You are going to be disappointed in on it. Live set it up for lot of heartache heartache. Yes. Well, they're printing heartache. I think they are going to be in eighteen public. Yeah. The center fielder from the Diamondbacks Diamondbacks are moving in a different direction. I would not be shocked at all if the giants came out of these meetings with HA Polly incentive. Well, let me give you an example. Diamondback fan. I wanna go see you for you just got rid of Goldschmidt give if you get rid of politics..
