Vegas Raiders Cut Down Roster to Initial 53-Man Roster
"Get right to it sam. The raiders cut their roster down to fifty three. It's not etched in stone whatsoever. There's going to be a lot of moves. I think made over the next forty eight hours but any surprises regarding what What we saw today. How you doing great work today. Greg today becky over. A number of those moves broke several of those transactions. Great work as always. We appreciate it for me biggest surprise. I don't think there's a ton of surprises. You take a look at the roster in for the most part guys that we expect it to make the team guys that had prominent roles in training camp guys that we expect to have. Prominent role season are on the team The one surprise to me. And i guess it's not too much surprise when you contextualize training camp and how everything went through the preseason Brown three years removed from the one thousand yard season. You figure you know his speed. His veteran presence could play a factor there that receiving core. But it goes to show you that. The raiders have a lot of faith in henry rugs in bryan edwards to take a step forward in hunter renfro to continue to be a productive sought receiver and and felt it was. It was a mutually beneficial. John brown asked for his release. I expected to be a market for him with the raiders. Feel good about where they are at receiver. So that was the biggest surprise for people for the most part this roster looks how i expected it to look at this point of the season. What about you. What did you think. Yeah and As it relates to john brown zeta-jones also continues To to emerge as a guy that the raiders value as a reserve player maybe even as a spot starter. There's a lot of value in zeta-jones that goes obviously the numbers because he really hasn't put the numbers up but there's a chemistry that he has with dr carr. There's also an understanding now going into year. Three in this offense of what the raiders are doing so Not a bad option to have that deep down on under depth chart. It'll be interesting to see what some of these younger wide receivers Dita turner and dylan. Stoner who did get cut. Whether they're brought back in some capacity. Very lisa i would think both would be on the practice squad. And who knows maybe one could end up. On the on the regular season roster fifty three man roster

CDC launches VaccineFinder tool to locate COVID-19 vaccine providers
"19 vaccine, But you can't find one help could be on the way. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has just launched an online search tool in partnership with Boston Children's Hospital. Help people identify which facilities have supplies of the vaccine. It's called vaccine finder dot org's. This initial launch is limited to certain providers in most states, NPR's Selena Simmons, Duffin has details. When you put in your zip code at vaccine, find her dot org's. You see an interactive map showing local pharmacies that get Cove in 19 vaccine doses from the federal government. You also see whether they have doses in stock. If you live in Alaska, Indiana, Iowa or Tennessee, you're in luck. Because in those states, the maps show more places administering Cove in 19 vaccines. Not just pharmacies, but private hospitals and clinics and public health sites, ideas to show vaccine providers that are open to the public. How to contact them how to book an appointment. And kind of show the daily inventory status of people are clearing where there's vaccine and where there isn't That's John Brownstein, the founder of Vaccine Finder and chief information officer at Boston Children's Hospital, he says. After this initial launch, more providers in more places are expected to join in in the coming days and weeks. That scene finder is actually not new. It began nine years ago. It all started after each one. Anyone where we want to figure out how to provide the population with the best possible insights and where vaccine was in their communities, and since then We have been building this platform usually showing people where to get the seasonal flu shot or travel vaccines, Bronstein says. In recent months, a team of about three dozen people has been working feverishly to launch this tool toe work for people looking for covert 19 vaccines. While navigating the fact that at this moment, vaccine supplies relatively low and eligibility is limited, both of which constrained how useful the tool is. In case the Kaiser Family Foundation says she wishes this tool had been around a few weeks ago. In the meantime, many states have created their own provider maps people can use, and that's added to this confusing patchwork. This idea has a lot of potential, but I think there's still some questions about what will it be like in practice. There are also concerns about how many providers will put their information on vaccine finder and whether the providers will really update their inventory every 24 hours. I've seen finders John Brown seen acknowledges. This is not a silver bullet. What we're trying to do is add a resource into the mix to help consumers. Of course not all problems get solved with a new website. And he says they have partnerships to put vaccine find her info about where vaccine providers are located and who has shot's available in lots of different places online from Google maps to the traffic app ways too Good are ex, so it's not just about coming in the website, but meeting consumers where they are. Are on making sure that anybody who's looking for a vaccine knows where to find them. The supply of Corona virus vaccine doses is growing. The Biden administration says it's now sending out over 16 million doses a week and increase of more than 70% since inauguration. Assuming that trend continues, more shots will be available and more providers like clinics and even doctors. Offices will be able to begin distributing vaccine doses as well. So people can look forward to a time when Cove in 19 vaccine doses are abundant and everyone is eligible. And you might even be able to ask your smart speaker to find a clinic nearby with vaccine doses and stock and head over to get your shot. Selena Simmons Duffin

What Is Wrong With Cam Newton and the Patriots Offense?
"To ask a questions about Camp because I want to know what we're watching here and what I mean by that is this is somebody who was considered throughout his entire NFL career to be a top ten to twelve came back. He was never great from the pocket. He was never super accurate, but he was not a dumpster fire. So what's happening is is it he's just off falling off a cliff at age Thirty-One, which doesn't necessarily happen very often if at all at the quarterback position where a guy just you know goes from the top ten to twelve guy to just plummeting to literally one of the you know, 557 worst quarterbacks in the League this year. Is it physical with him Jay Glazer said before the game in Glazier usually has some really good information, you know, he kind of keeps a lot of the stuff in his pocket, but when he drop off stuff, it's usually dropping a bomb unless it's, you know, teasing 24 hours out and offensive lineman with covid-19 another story, but you know, you've got you've got Glazer coming out saying he's in an awful lot of pain. Is it is it that like what I just there needs to be a reason Greg there needs to be a reason why I saw a Cam Newton for eight to nine years in Carolina again not be supervised celebrated with a program and and not be you know, incredible breaking defenses down but still effective and now this guy is completely completely a mess. I'm just trying to make sense of it. Is it is it is it physical that he fall off a cliff is this what he is like are the Patriots not necessarily utilizing him in a manner like Carolina did which would make him more effective. I want to get to the bottom of it cuz I feel like what a lot of people are doing right now and it's it's listen. It's Justified criticize them all you want he's been bad, but I feel like we're more criticized in the result instead of asking why like what has gone wrong is this just the inevitable deterioration of a guy who took a lot of hits and is now what he is. I don't know what the answer is. Yeah. Well here's Answer it's a lot of little things that have sort of added up and gotten us to this point because I think you know really I mean really in the past month. He's been bad. In fact that you would say he was average or a little bit above average but I think on the whole this season, I would say Cam Newton is average number one. As far as factors would Newton and why he's not better why it's not working here. Number one for me is he's no longer. He doesn't have the legs. He used to have he is no longer. He's fine, He's still elusive, but he's an aging mobile quarterback and that doesn't really work and that's always been part of the equation with Cam going back to Auburn. Anyone Heisman Trophy you can teams had to respect his legs. They realized they no longer have to respect his legs because he's not going to just dominate a game with his legs anymore. He doesn't have that ability would be so instead of instead of being afraid of Cam in and being like we have to have eyes on cam and we have to do this and that they're know in playing Zone soft his own. They're no longer. They they realize they no longer have to do that. So, you know, they're just stacking the box and they'll play cover-3 on the outside or man-to-man or what-have-you. They they do whatever they want to do coverage wise cuz they know cams not going to beat them. I mean at most what's he going to get ten fifteen yards? Like he's not going to change the game. Number two is the Patriots just distinct lack of weapons and we'll talk about this anymore in a little bit. But I mean look the Patriots are goddamn horrible at everywhere other than running back and offensive line. I mean they are they're I mean, they're awful. They are awful. They're awful in this division there at the bottom of the Barrel in this division below the Jets below the Dolphins certainly below the bills. I mean, they're just it's falling off a cliff. I mean they have nothing they have no tight ends. They have no wide receivers. They they have running backs. Yeah. They have a great offensive line. Yeah, but it's only going to get you so place so so it's all on cam like when you when you take off If if Cam had better weapons if he was saved the bills, I mean if he had Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley and John Brown and like, you know Gabriel Davis and Dawson box and you know, all these guys all over the place where you can spread them out and they gotta be like, oh crap. Well, we got a double digs because what's going to happen like Then then cam might be able to do some things like between his legs and the lack of weapons. There's just the Patriots are just they're in a telephone booth. They can't they the quarterback can't do anything with the offense of coordinator can't do anything like to me you combine all those things. Plus there's probably some residuals shoulder stuff with Cam you combine all those things? Yeah, and you're right. It's it's not good in offense right

"This was set up as it was a colony that was set up funded by philanthropist, abolitionist philanthropist and set up to demonstrate that whites and blacks could live side by side. In peace and Prosperity, and John Brown was one who was willing to join that demonstration. And for awhile. This is what he did. He imagined that he would Start a school for black Children and that he would make his contribution this way, but it didn't quite answer. The need that John Brown seemed tohave for immediacy for making an impact now. He became famous and a wanted man for his activities in Kansas in the 18 fifties kind of waging his own private war against slavery. Experts will explain why Kansas was such a flash point for the issue of slavery in the 18 fifties. In 18 20. Congress had approved the Missouri compromise, which set aside the northern portion of the Louisiana purchase, which would include Kansas Territory. Four freedom. It would allow slavery in the southern part around the state of Louisiana, where there were already slaves. But basically the idea wasn't thinking, wass that this new large part of the American West should forever be free from slavery. And that was the deal in 18 20. Opponents of slavery were counting on that to contain the spread of slavery. In 18 50 for Congress repealed that portion of the interview compromise and opened Kansas territory to well, the principle that the phrase was popular sovereignty. The idea was that any settler could go Pro slavery or anti slavery. The pro slavery settlers could take their slaves into Kansas and the deal Wass that when Kansas Territory then had enough residents to qualify for statehood. Those people they're on the ground would get together They would write a constitution and the Constitution of the state would either allow slavery or forbid slavery. But what it meant Wass that in the 18 fifties Proponents of slavery spread and the opponents of slavery spread. They felt themselves in competition. We have to get our people on the ground in Kansas, so that at that critical moment when the Constitution is written, our side will prevail. And so there was this rush to Kansas by people who were both for and against slavery, and John Brown went with several of his adult sons on the side that was opposed to slavery. What kind of violence was occurring between the two sides there? At first, the violence took the form of relatively minor act of intimidation. So the settlements of one side of the other would be raided by militias. Guerrilla units of the other and things will be broken up. But what really what really got to John Brown wass an attack on the free state settlement, and this was the term these are going to want to Kansas to be a free state. The free state settlement of Lawrence, Kansas, where Mom Militia of pro slavery. Settlers arrived and they broke up the town and they destroyed a hotel there, and they didn't kill anybody. But they intimidated the people living there. And what anger John Brown more than anything else was the fact that the free state settlers didn't retaliate. They didn't fight back. So when he heard this, he began heading toward Lawrence and didn't get his chance to weigh in. At that point, the event was over before he got there. But John Brown determined to make a statement. Showing that the pro slavery settlers could not get away with this sort of thing. Right. So Brown and couple of his sons and some followers engaged in two successive nights of violence that came to be known as the Pottawatomie Massacre described what happened. So what they did was they approached a community. Along Pottawatomie Creek that was known to be inhabited by pro slavery settlers and John Brown and his sons and a couple of his followers. Grabbed five of these pro slavery center's out of their beds out of their homes in the middle of the night and took them out and brutally murdered them, hacked them to pieces with broad sort. John bound, apparently was trying to send a message to the pro slavery side that this could happen to you if you persist in these activities. Pretty savage stuff. How did it affect his family? What did they think of this? His sons. Especially the ones they were a couple who weren't with him on this and when they heard about it. One of them asked him. Did you do this? Did you do this horrible thing? And John Brown essentially said it was the will of God. John Brown. By this time believed in some way that he had become the avenging angel of the Lord. He believed that slavery with such An evil institution. That almost any thing was justified in opposing it. Now, so his son's new and some of them were involved. Some of the sons took part in the murders themselves. But in the somewhat larger group, John Brown was a little bit K. G. He was Wanted for the murders in Kansas territory, but he never admitted openly that he had done it. And as he traveled out of Kansas and went back, he's soliciting Mohr funds for the battle in Kansas. His supporters made a point of not asking him directly if he had done it, because apparently they didn't want to know. He let them believe maybe he had done it. Maybe he hadn't done it. So from then on Brownwood move carefully around the country, often with pseudonyms because he was a wanted man. So it was fortunate for John Brown that there was no convenient photography in those days so nobody could circulate pictures of John Brown. He changed his appearance. He would cut his hair and grow his beard. He would change his name. And he was pretty good at posing as somebody else, either a farmer or a surveyor. And He had a remarkable personality. There was an intense kind of magnetism that drew people to him that drew people to engage in this murder sort of behavior. On his behalf and at his direction, but the same time he was also very good. It just passing himself off as this harmless old fellow that no one would suspect of anything out of the ordinary. We're going to take a break here. Let me reintroduce. You were speaking with H W brands. He chairs the history department at the University of Texas at Austin. His new book is the Zealot and the Emancipator, John Brown, Abraham Lincoln and the Struggle for American Freedom. We'll continue our conversation after this short break. This's fresh air..

Never Surrender, with Garbled Twistory
"Into Slavery Gabriel Prosser grew to be a strapping young man trained as a blacksmith and learned to read he his brothers and his wife hatched a plan to not only a free themselves from bondage, but all enslaved people in Virginia their plan was to gather more men take over the capitol of Richmond and kill all the white people with the exception of methodists Quakers and the French processor. Would then rule the New Kingdom of Virginia. The plan didn't work. My name's Moxi and this is your brain on facts. Why didn't they Rebel this is a question that should have occurred to every American schoolchild when studying the Civil War and slavery. Why didn't they Rebel the truth of the matter is they did more than one third of the population in the south in the eighteenth Century or enslaved people in the 1943 Book American negro slave revolts historian Herbert aptheker estimated. There were over 250 rebellions of enslaved people in the US between 1619 and 1865 some historians put that number over 300. So rebellion was a lot more common than we were led to believe and even if enslaved people weren't taking apart in an armed Uprising many would fight back in small ways painting food work slowdowns feigning injury. Damaging equipment and so forth the new world had slave rebellions basically as long as there were people enslaved. They're the first documented Rebellion taking place on San Domingo on Christmas Day 1522 some rebellions managed to make it into the history books and pop culture like the seizure of the Amistad when a boat full of kidnapped Africans over through their captors and took control of the ship to both win their freedom and be memorialized in a film by Steven Spielberg. The first recorded slave revolt in the United States happened an hour down the road from me in Gloucester Virginia in 1663. White indentured servants included enslaved Africans in their plan to do away with their master and be free another servant betrayed them and was rewarded with his freedom. It would be nearly twenty-five years as far as we know off. Before the first all black slave revolt which again took place in Virginia. The largest slave rebellion outside the United States was the successful Insurrection of black slaves that overthrew French rule and abolished slavery in Saint domingue establishing the agenda nation of Haiti that proved unequivocally that the enslaved could defeat their captors and live free that precedent frightened and slavers on the mainland suck slave owners actively repressed any sign of rebellion laws dictating when where and how slaves could congregate were enacted to prevent Insurrection and quavo light paranoia. It's the same reason the enslaved were forbidden from learning to read or write words spread ideas and your captives May develop repetto Mania wage medical condition and let this make you grateful your doctor actually had to go to school the mental illness that caused black slaves to want to run away. Yeah, that's what these folks told themselves in case you thought the narrative myth of the happy slave was a recent invention. With Plantation populations under tight control Insurrection would tend to come from the cities or parts of the country where there were lots of small farms rather than one big one. We don't have time today to talk about all three hundred rebellions. We'll just hit on some of the ones that are most likely to make you ask why you're high school history textbook included between zero and one slave rebellion. Well at the same time definitely mentioning white John Brown at Harpers Ferry. Records are a bit spotty for our first subject the Stono Rebellion in South Carolina in 1793. History is colored both by the mouth of the teller and the ear of The Listener with their preconceptions, and we only have one firsthand contemporary account. Early on a late-summer Sunday morning 20 enslaved people gathered near the Stono River Why Sunday morning a recently passed law required all woke up men to carry firearms with them to church on Sunday. So the rebels made their move when the men and at least some of the guns would be elsewhere.

Obviously, John Brown doesn't think it's a murder. He thinks he's on a holy mission and he's going to provoke a war. And he finds out when he gets there that this guy's actually just a farmer who doesn't even only slaves. But he's so full of the righteousness of Abraham that he decides he's going to go through with the murder anyway, right? It's really an intense moment. And you know this is a moment when the nation was divided by slavery, but it was nowhere more intense than in Kansas because the issue was These expansion territories.

You know, that's the thing they talk about. You know, if you go to Berlin, you don't see statues of Hitler and gerbils. And you know these these people Stonewall Jackson, Jeb Stuart, Robert E. Lee Jefferson Davis. They might be admirable soldiers, you know they might be, but they tried to overthrow this country and they tried to preserve their rights human slave, another part of the country. And that's the history that has to be taught. So you know there should be Statue of hair and some of them should be a statue of all the men who died of heart despairing thes people, You know, I think you are the reason they don't want to teach you the story of Harper's buries. It shows you that individuals can make a difference. Radical. You know, David can take down Goliath. You know, it's true it can happen. And we have to care because you know the great energy. The system like the press on you is it doesn't make any difference. Just watch your own ass. You know like it. You're never going to make a difference. And I think that showing his two showing what Harriet Tubman did, you know, teaching that you could. You could teach the story of the attempted overthrow of the United States of America if you want, but that's how it should be taught. You know, And if John Brown's a lunatic because he killed people, then what's Robert E. Lee? I mean, you know, I mean, this guy killed people in a biblical proportion of biblical proportion. Even it's been lovely to talk to you. I want to I want Oh, diverted thes subjects were so intense and they're they're They're strangely polarizing to people and I really don't think they should be. Over God's sake. I I hear what you're saying. But, you know, I like digging into the idea of truth of history of the history that we're taught of faith like it is 100% lovely, like 100% good to talk to you. But I do want t want to get on my soapbox. You know, we need to know now. Now he's sitting in a chair. I want Teo. I want to play something for you. We actually your daughter on the show. A couple of months ago she came in, and we asked her about acting and music, and she said something we wanted to play for you. There's something that my dad actually said to me once I was like going to play a role that was I was auditioning for a role that was younger than I was, and I was like, I'm nervous. Like, how do I play this younger, person automatic dish? I look younger, like Hera pared down what I do, and he's like You know so much more about what's happened before. Like, you know more about yourself a TTE 14 now at 18, which is what I was then then you knew about yourself at 14 when you were 14. And I think that's true. Also, about time. We know more about the eras that have come before than we know about our own era. That's Ah, that's that's your daughter there. My what's it like to hear that? You know, I'm starting to turn into an old man. You know, my eyes get swimming when I hear that, you know. Its reason to get out of bed in the morning as to see these young people, young people marching and young people caring and you know this generation is going through a lot 2020 is going to be you know when you say your classic 2020 The rest of your life. People are going to go. Oh, you know, I mean, we're living through a lot, And I think it's going to create a very substantive generation. You know, I could talk to about my grandfather. Well, you know, you lived through the Depression and World War two. He saw things. He didn't take things for granted. You know, my whole generation took things for granted. I didn't know I should be grateful for the N ba. I just thought I could watch sports whenever I want. I don't know. Like, Oh, that could be taken away from me. You know, we talked earlier about true Western and Broadway. I didn't know when I was last on Broadway. I didn't walk out on stage. Giving thanks for the institution of Broadway. Giving thanks for the fact that we could be together that we could share Sam Shepard's writing together and laugh and questioned in cough. Remember like that? I would do this and do this play and the play has lots of long silences. Sometimes it drives me nuts. You know that mean 13 people that I had chose this beautiful silence..

"In just about everything you know him from. The green Mile the crown babe, The Babe movies. He played the farmer on the babe movies and hundreds of others. His newest movie is called Emperor and His name is James Cromwell. James. Thanks for joining us this morning on news radio 1000, Katie. Okay, one thing about you is your ability to really meld into your characters. Oh, thank you very much. That's what an actor supposed todo do you ever have? People come up to you and say you're that guy? Uh, not too much. Press calls me that. Go know most of the people who come up to me. You don't know me. Say, aren't you? Ah ah. No, No, you're not. Well, I do. I also remember your great work is Prince Philip. You really completely got into that character and even complete with accents. Have you ever had a problem with accents? Uh, well, I'll let you know what I try, though. I'm going to do a film in Welsh a little of my roles. I've never done one before the movie peppers on DVD and video on demand, and I think this is a very timely movie considering the racial tensions in our country right now. Absolutely absolutely. It's a great story. It's wonderful that it's based in reality, um There was a shield green. He was a runaway slave. He did go back with John Brown. He was involved in the raid on Harper's ferry. Um, director. That is sort of Ah, fiction. What happens in the film? But the raid on Harper's ferry his involvement Why that raid was so important how it led to the Civil war. What the civil war was actually thought about which was slavery. Although many people south tonight that, uh, that it's still with us. The sentiments are still with us. Jim Crow is still with racism and segregation. The oppression of black people, both in the south and the north of the north off the hook. Still exists. Because we've never come to terms with the A crime that was committed against people of color. Specially at Africans coming from Africa stolen from Africa sold into slavery who built this country. I mean, literally built. This country who are responsible with the largest industry in this country was the use the raising of cotton by slave labor. So our country owes an incredible debt to those people, which I think should be repaid on And this is Mrs part of that history a very important part of that history. James Cromwell's with US Emperors, the role you played of John Brown. I do excellent, So that's a meaty, meaty role to get into, and not a lot of people want to. Well, I wanted to get into because my father did a picture director that he was a director in Hollywood. He directed a picture called Abe Lincoln in Illinois, and he played John Brown and I have a picture of him. And full makeup behind the camera directing a scene John Brown directing John Brown's going to do that. I really wanted to do John Brown because we we play the same role and Dude, Every movie was a different era. John Brown actually was the catalyst for I mean, if there was if Pearl Harbor was the catalyst for a world War to John Brown was the candles for the Civil War. I I agree. Yeah, very much. So I think the South recognized the John Brown would probably be the first of many acts. Of rebellion against the slave states and their livelihood were threatened. Their lives were threatened on which is like one of the main reason that they seceded from the United States, and John Brown knew he was doing this the whole time. He knew he was bringing this. He was sticking this into the face of everybody concerned North and South. Well, he lived a course in Kansas and Kansas was in a struggle as to whether it was to be a slave, state free state. And the slave states. Actually aggressed against the free states. On DH John Brown was involved in that and he realized this is just going to go on going as the country moves assed United States moved West Texas had just become a slave state and they would carry this out and pretty soon most of the country would be controlled by the place and because they had the power in this country because of the Importance ofthe cotton and the export of cotton on the free labor that they got from the slaves made it in a very successful industry. Most of the great fortunes were built on Slavery, Um, both in the South and the north. And so he he realized somebody has got to somebody's gotta shift on. It can't be shifted by making speeches and know it's really interesting because I was involved in the civil rights movement and the People from in the freedom rides and and the people who went to the south in order to register voters. They were committed to non violence and to some degree They were successful, but in a in another aspect, they were not successful because they just shifted it into the prison Industrial complex and the continuation of Jim Crow laws and they still exist today and they're being Utilized today to suppress the vote. Um, with the being abetted by the Supreme Court, which made a number of disgraceful decisions about the Voting Rights act. So all this is still existing..

"Trial. The charges were murder treason and conspiring with Negros to produce insurrection. That trial began on October. Twenty six just ten days after the raid. All of the men were found guilty in the penalty for all of the charges was death. John Brown was hanged on December. Second Eighteen fifty nine before his hanging. He handed a garden note. That read quote I John Brown 'em now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood among those present were Robert e Lee stonewall Jackson and John Wilkes booth measured by whether it launched an armed slave resistance that freed thousands of slaves and forcibly wrested control of the south from slave owners as had been the original plan. John Brown's raid on Harper's ferry was a complete failure measured by whether it launched an armed slave resistance that free thousands of slaves and forcibly wrested control of the south from slave owners as had been the original plan. John Brown's raid on Harper's ferry was a complete failure but measured by its ultimate effect on the progression of slavery in the United States. It's a completely different story. The same way that there's murders of five pro slavery settlers and Kansas. That we talked about earlier had sparked a tide of violence there. The rate at harpers ferry inflamed passions tensions and violence around slavery and the relationships between slave and free states in many circles in the North Jon Brown became a martyr especially as he was eloquent and steadfast in his denunciations of slavery while on trial and people double down on their efforts to abolish the institution but in the south people were terrified. The idea of a slave insurrection was already a source of fear in a lot of the south and in some places white slave owners and the rest of the white population were vastly outnumbered by enslaved people so the idea that these people might unite and violently overthrow their owners with petrifying. The South tried to downplay Brown's raid as unimportant in an effort to dismiss it while simultaneously being completely horrified at what it could spell for the future on a more practical level. Many parts of the south renewed their call for militia membership and military drills of those militia. So that when the civil war did begin those militias that had been created under the idea of fighting a potential John Brown inspired rebellion if it was necessary. We're already there and trained and ready to go to war. It was also one of many events that happened in the late. Eighteen fifty s that stoked political passions the issue of slavery. The Democrats split over the issue of slavery in the eighteen sixty election with pro and anti slavery factions each putting forth candidates for presidency and neither securing a necessary two-thirds majority at the Party Convention after a series of efforts to unite the party. The Democratic Party nominated senator a Douglas while the Southern Democrats nominated John C Breckenridge and both Douglas and Breckenridge presented themselves as the official party candidates. Meanwhile an entire other party the Constitutional Union Party nominated former senator. John Bell of Tennessee to be their candidate for president and in the end. It was Abraham Lincoln the Republican nominee. Who won this four way election with only one hundred and eighty electoral votes and just shy of forty percent of the popular vote as a consequence of Lincoln's election? Eleven southern states seceded from the Union which directly led to the civil war. Fifty years after the raid. Frederick Douglass would say that John Brown quote began the war that ended. American slavery made this a Free Republic. There are a lot of historian. Basically think without this lightning point of harpers ferry there would not have been that four way split in the election that ultimately led Lincoln to be elected not with a whole majority of the popular vote and for decades even a century after the raid historical accounts painted Brown as mentally unstable with descriptions being full of words like delusional and Madman but really brown was methodical and well researched in this whole idea. He had studied other uprisings. Including Net Turner's rebellion in the Haitian revolution and he had also studied guerrilla resistance to military forces in both Europe and the United States including in the colonial era today. Some historical depictions of him have shifted a little bit to be more including of language lake fiercely devoted rather than unhinged in insane even when he was alive at first as news of the raid was spreading even in the north where it sort of reinvigorated abolition. As a cause at first there were people who were like that ban is not in his right mind. Mind and sentiment shifted about him as he continually made these like steadfast and very eloquent denunciations of slavery during his trial So the idea that everybody thought that he was like mentally unwell. Even at the time was not totally. Accurate Harry Tubman in particular described him as being the only white person that she ever met who actually thought that slavery was a life or death issue. That really needed to be treated that way. an even like even the more recent past You see divisions and how people talk about John Brown and like whether his ideas were good and whether he was making sense in a methodical way or whether he was sort of flying off in this delusional fervor like the Malcolm X. Talked about if you if you meet a white person to says that they are in favor of black power. Find out what they think about John Brown. I think that's one of the things that sort of led to the politically reactive podcasts. That we talked about early earlier in the top of the show was that they were talking about John. Brown white people and idea of people who were that fervently devoted and that ready to put their own lives on the line no matter what to in slavery so he's a complicated person. Yeah I feel like we feel like we barely scratched the surface.

"In eighteen. Fifty four Congress passed the Kansas Nebraska. Act So for a little bit of context. If you don't remember under the Missouri compromise of eighteen twenty congress had maintained a balance between slave states and free states by admitting main as a Free State and Missouri as a slave state and then also by drawing a line parallel thirty six degrees thirty minutes north and that was basically a border for slavery. Slavery would be outlawed when new states north of that line entered the union however the Kansas Nebraska Act up ended that previous compromise instead allowed new states to decide whether to allow slavery when they joined the Union by popular vote. Nebraska is north of Kansas and most people considered that territory pretty well decided on being a Free State when it entered the union. Kansas however was not nearly so certain as a result people both in favor of and against slavery flooded to Kansas to try to sway the vote one way or another. Kansas became a literal battleground and the result was a period of violent conflict that came to be known as bleeding Kansas. John Brown was one of the people specifically one of the anti-slavery people who went to Kansas to fight. He actually followed in the wake of five of his son who had already moved there and he arrived with a wagon full of swords and rifles eighteen fifty five and December of that year he led a fighting force as he and his neighbors went to defend the town of Lawrence which was a an anti-slavery town for a pro slavery invasion the following. May Brown's father died in at about the same time. Abolitionist Senator Charles. Sumner had been caned on the Senate floor. There's an episode about that incident in the archives. Brown was simultaneously grief-stricken over his father and outraged over Charles. Sumner and at about the same time pro slavery forces returned to Lawrence and sacked it. And when he was urged to act with caution and restraint Brown said quote. Caution caution sir. I am eternally tired of hearing the word caution. It is nothing but the word of cowardice on May twenty four. Th of eighteen fifty six brown led a small party in dragging five pro slavery. Men Out of their cabins and hacking them to death in retribution. For the sacking of Lawrence. This would come to be known as the pot. Water Massacre John Brown's in these murders had multiple consequences two of his sons who had not participated but were distraught with their father had done had psychological breakdowns another son. Frederick who had participated was killed in the aftermath and a lot of the rest of the abolitionist community was actually horrified by what he had done. But Brown was steadfast in that action. He had taken and the murders were a tipping point in Kansas as pro slavery forces sought retribution in federal troops. Went from community to community on a relentless search for Brown and his party Brown on the other hand evaded capture which in his mind solidified his idea that he could similarly evade capture in the Appalachian Mountains as part of his subterranean pathway strategy. He just needed weapons and a few men and he left Kansas to find them in January of eighteen fifty eight. He started meeting with some of the most. Prominent Black abolitionist leaders. Including Frederick Douglass. And Harry. It's been with Douglas. He drafted a constitution for a provisional government of the community of liberated slaves that he was hoping to build of which he hoped. That Frederick Douglass would be president. He then went to Chatham on -Tario which is home of Marianne Shad Carey which is how that came up previously to plan the raid that would launch this movement. His target for the raid was harpers ferry. Virginia Virginia was a slave state and harpers ferry was in a strategic position where the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers meet. It was also home to a federal arsenal that he planned to use to arm his fighters. Many of whom would be liberated slaves as well as an ironworks a munitions factory and other industries that would be useful for a growing rebellion. The surrounding counties were home to about eighteen thousand enslaved people as well as sympathetic white residents of the nearby. Appalachian mountains all of whom he hoped to bring into his 'cause a lot of the people he was supposed that he was hoping to draw from in terms of white support. Where from what is now West Virginia which was much more anti-slavery than the other rest of Virginia? And that is why West. Virginia St seceded from Virginia. During all of this having planned this raid out while he was in Chatham he started connecting with other abolitionists in New York and Massachusetts. Try to get the money to carry out this plan. He ultimately got financial backing from a group of wealthy abolitionists. Who came to be known as the secret six these George Garrett Smith Thomas Wentworth Higginson Theodore Parker Franklin sanborn and Samuel Grizzly. How but then things got derailed. A little mercenary. Hugh Forbes threatened to expose the plan which caused Brown to return to Kansas to try to avoid suspicion. He stayed for six months and when he left sort of as a proof of concept he liberated Missouri slave named Jim Daniels in his family. Along with a handful of people in sleep on nearby plantations. He sheltered them in Kansas for a month before eluding capture and slave catchers to guide them to Canada with this success under his belt. Brown got back to the task of rating harpers ferry. He rented a house across the border in Maryland. As a base of operations he bought. Rifles and pikes and basically started outfitting. The slave army that he believed would come to join him at harpers ferry as soon as they learned what he was doing. He also enlisted. Harriet Tubman to travel through the area's plantations and spread the word and enlist the help of the enslaved people in the surrounding counties. The actual raid became on October sixteenth of eighteen. Fifty nine and Brown was fifty nine years old at the time his force was smaller than originally planned. It was twenty two people. Total three of them left behind the rented house in Maryland to receive liberated slaves so brown and nineteen men made their way into harpers ferry by night. Cut The telegraph lines and took control of the railroad station and the Musket Factory and rifle works which were essentially unguarded then they abducted notorious slave owners and they took them to the engine house at the train station. As hostages. There was only one fatality in that original takeover and that was a free black porter who had been working at the train station with a telegraph lines. Cut the source of news out of Harpers. Ferry overnight was a train that came through at the station after Brown ticket over which they actually allowed to pass even though it meant risking that the people aboard would take word to the authorities of what was happening which they did soon. Rumors started to spread. The John Brown had taken harpers ferry. I with fifty people and then with the hundred with two hundred and by morning it was clear to People living there. That Brown had indeed taken over several strategic and the town started to muster resistance at first this resistance was mostly in the form of militia and local farmers and slave owners. But at the same time. The vast wave of support Brown had expected just did not materialize. There were several reasons for this. One was that so much time had passed between the meeting in Chatham Ontario and the raid that a lot of the black population that had been interested in helping had lost interest or they had just lost touch with Brown and his allies. Another was that Harriet. Tubman couldn't be found when Brown decided to go ahead with the raid. The historical record is not entirely clear. On why they couldn't locate her but she may have been ill she had already done some preliminary searching slash work through the the plantations of area to spread the word of what was coming but they had expected her to be on hand to rally support further when the raid actually happened and they just couldn't find her even though there is evidence that a few enslaved people from nearby did join the rate. It was definitely not the groundswell of massive support. That Brown had been expecting so soon. He and his raiders were surrounded and pinned in both the train station and the Musket factory and rifle works to attempts to send somebody to call for a ceasefire under a white flag. Both failed the second person sent was actually Brown son Watson who was shot and killed some of Brown's men tried to flee their positions via the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers leading to there being shot. Some of them while still in the water and meanwhile brown in the men he was holed up within the engine. House of the train station drilled holes in the door that they could shoot through hoping to hit their attackers and they were mostly unsuccessful. Although one shot did hit harpers ferry mayor. Fontaine Beckham with Beckham's death any support. That Brown's raid might have had among harpers ferry's residents just evaporated a mob stormed the hotel. Where William Thomson? Which was the first man that had been sent out for a ceasefire was being held. They shot him in the head and threw him into the Potomac. Eventually President James Buchanan dispatched Marines under the command of Robert e Lee to restore order at that point harpers ferry streets were mobbed with both trained fighters and angry ramble. Trying to get it Brown's men and the engine house all but four of whom were by that point injured or dead after arriving around midnight. Leeson J E B Stuart. Who would go on to become? Lee's own cavalry commander on the southern side and the civil war to the ended house under a white flag to negotiate Stewart promised Brown protection from the mob in a fair trial. If he would let the hostages go brown refused he wanted himself and his surviving men to be allowed to go back to Maryland with the hostages as basically a strategic point and then they would free the hostages once they were safely back in Maryland with negotiations at an impasse. Lee sent men to batter down the door. The morning of the Eighteenth Marines swarmed the engine house killing some of Brown's few remaining men and taking others prisoner Brown was hit with a sword and only survived because the sort happened to hit a buckle that he was wearing in the end of the original crew of nineteen men. Ten had been killed or mortally wounded two of them. Being Brown's sons and five had been taken prisoner. There were also six civilian deaths the mayor to towns people to enslaved people that belong to the hostages in the porter that had been killed at the train station. Here's how the official report described it. Quote a fanatical man stimulated to recklessness and desperation by the constant teachings and intemperate appeals of wild and treasonable enthusiasts unrestrained by the Constitution and the laws of the land by the precepts of religion by appeals of humanity or have mercy formed a conspiracy to make a sudden descent upon the people of Harpers Ferry to rob the Arsenal plunder. Public Property and stir up servile insurrection. With that brief recap from the official report. We will take a brief word from sponsor before we talk about the raids. Now this episode is brought to you by Norton. Three sixty with lifelock. If you never go.

The S in USA stands for swindle
"Lipson recently made the leap from Indonesia to America and he's starting to think that the in USA stands for swindle. It was meant to be a simple day out. Hirakata gopher drive have lunch come home but in the United States and certainly here in Washington. Dc nothing is simple. Everything it seems is in fact a swindle. I The hire car online. The quote was about sixty five Australian dollars eminently reasonable so I booked but going in to pick out the keys the price had inexplicably gone up to one hundred fifteen dollars mice double. I had chosen to limit liability for about ten dollars but the Matt's still didn't add up. This is life in America where the price never the price taxes fees and surcharges and never included in the quoted price. Even when you ask what you need to pay for Sandwich or concert ticket or phone plan your told one price and then watch the cash register magically throw up an extra ten or twenty percent and to be clear. This is before the much maligned cheap. Anyway I booked the car. It was a Friday afternoon and the Hayek Office was about to close for some reason. It was open every day until seven pm except Fridays when I closed up shop at five so I asked if I could prepay for an additional hour or two on Saturday since returning the car by four thirty in the afternoon would limit our options for such saying. I was told that would incur. Another one hundred fifteen dollars even for a few extra minutes a full day's charge of course that's why the office shuts at five on Fridays. They know people are more likely to book an extra day or get distracted a winery and perhaps missed the deadline. Like we almost did so to swindles before. I even put the key in the ignition. We drove to hop ferry and historic town. Where in eighteen fifty nine abolitionist John Brown through gasoline on the flames of civil war by instigating a revolt by armed slaves. We set the map to the visitor's center and just before we arrived Lo and behold a toll booth. It was thirty dollars to drive onto the side told myself well. We pay for National Parks in Australia. So I suppose it's reasonable. He will give him some great assistance by a real American Park Ranger in a real smokybear style hat. He very helpfully pointed out shuttle bus. That would take us to the side but as we shuttle past the toll booth and down the road to town. I realized this was the same road. We'd just driven on anyone. In the know had just driven straight to town and avoided the thirty dollar fee swindled number three felt even worse because smokey. The Bay was the culprit. We bought some hot dogs for lunch and then with tip paid double what the number on the chalkboard suggested then eventually got shuttle bus back to the car and headed for home since we had a bit of time pass leave. I thought why don't take the scenic. Route turned off the freeway but they once again and other toll booth scenic route was in fact a toll road no warning sign of a fee ahead no way to reverse out turnaround just slot for our credit card. Another nine dollars enough to three kilometers and other toll booth and other credit card slot and another six dollars as a straight talking strengthen. It's hard not to get upset at these constant traps here in the United States. After my time in Indonesia wrongly concluded it was the Bali's street Hawker had to keep your eye on it turns out it's the overly polite American. That's the biggest threat to your wallet. I guess it's the logical conclusion of capitalism running rampant combined with undefended social services like national parks and roads. Even smokey the bear has had to become. Shall we say street smart to keep honey on the table? It seems you have to be shock just to get by. Gold knows how someone who struggles with English or numbers would cope. Maybe they don't and it makes a little more sense to me. How the nation's most famous shock a dealmaker who repeatedly dotted contractors secured? Hundreds of millions of dollars in questionable tax breaks and delivered subpar apartments to customers could be revived by his supporters as a very stable genius
Is BP's Shift for Real?
"Story number one is all about be p the P is of course for petroleum now be once said it wanted to get beyond petroleum more than a decade ago that strategy failed and now BP has a new CEO Bernard Looney. He came in recently in announced almost immediately that the company is going to try to offset or eliminate all of its carbon emissions by twenty fifty. Looney also said that he wants a fifty percent reduction in carbon intensity and he says ep will just depend less on oil production for its revenue and continue to ramp up in clean energy. And finally it's going to support a carbon taxes or climate related policy and pull out any money from climate denying trade organizations. Now this is a big deal for a company that has a very spotty record but there are not many details yet and loonie says that they'll those details will come in September so jigger we know that you used to work for BP. We have seen this movie before when BP attempted to rebrand beyond petroleum in the early two thousands. Is this any different? Yeah I think it is different right. So what about it? I think what happened under John Brown. Was that there was a realization on. John. Brown's part that this was a megatrend the BP had to figure out that it didn't know what it was doing but it really had to figure it out and John. Was Lord Browne actually. I was very dedicated to doing it. You Know Tony Hayward Org remind us who lured Brown is so Lord. Browne was the longest the loudness CEO and VP history. I think he was. Ceo for twenty years he found the prudhoe. Bay Alaska Find Which is really what made. Bp As a corporation and became CEO in the late eighties and busy never missed a quarterly earnings report. Until sort of the end of his tenure was heralded as probably one of the most powerful oil. Ceo's in modern times and and you know when you think about the people came after him right Tony Hayward and others Bob Dudley was actually my boss before I left. Bp Solar And so it was one of those things where where people ridiculed John Brown after? He laughed thought that he was distracted by non oil pursuits and the beyond petroleum stuff. And I think what the data shown is at pretty much every single unconventional oil project that BP has embarked on In the last ten years has lost money pretty much every single one and they are now worried that what the krona virus and everything else going on that oil prices might actually stay it forty fifty dollars a barrel forever because we've hit peak demand. Which was you know another artifact that was crafted by BP Guy Right so one of my bosses at BP was tool Aria. Who's now at the Cambridge Energy Research Group and and they you know he's crafted this peak demand scenario which. I think a lot of oil people believe now that we're never going to get above. Let's call it one hundred and three million barrels a day of oil so these are macro fundamental trends that BP is now starting to come to grips with saying their oil and business is actually fundamentally Not Profitable for future oil finds that they're looking for now. Bob Dudley the former CEO who Looney took over the company from you mentioned in a recent episode. His interview with Jason Board off of the Columbia Energy Exchange podcast. And you criticize him for that interview saying that he really wasn't in touch with the reality of the changing energy markets today. So Bob Dudley. What did he do at BP? And how might looney change that? So Bob Dudley came through the Amoco side of the business and then when BP Amoco merged in the ninety eight. I think it was twenty. Eight is when he joined. Bp At the time B. P. was all about gas. I mean it was a long time ago now but but Natural gas was a waste fuel. It was not counted in reserves. Right so when you went to a stock analyst and they care deeply in the oil industry about reserve replacement ratio. Natural gas wasn't allowed to be counted in that today. Exxon Mobil seventy percent of their reserve place ratio is natural gas. So that was Bob Dudley's education right. It was really the power of gas. And that's what you know Lord Browne of inculcated in him and you know and then he went to Russia he you know our assets and BP were taken over by the government and then he fled in the middle of the night and like had to be kept in a secret location because people feared for his life. I mean those are the kinds of experiences that shaped Bob Dudley. And but to this day he's really just a natural gas fan. He just believes very strongly that the way. Bp gets there in this changing world is by converting everything to gas. Catherine you sat down and you watched Bernard loonies speech. What did he say? And what feels different to you? Yes so interestingly he just got this job. A couple of weeks ago He started at BP as an entry level engineer in early in his career nineteen ninety-one or something so he's grown up in that company so he knows a lot about the company so two weeks into being the CEO isn't starting a job without knowing anything about it. And I spoke to Mary Street. A friend of mine who works at BP. She's a senior vice president of communications and External Affairs. And she said he is setting a new direction Of course the double is in the details of how that's going to be executed but the speech was pretty impressive to his employees and investors and stakeholder community. Which is they're going to be reimagining. Energy reinventing EP and performing wild transforming. That's how he put it. And they have ten main goals or aims as he says five of them are internal so they wanna get to net zero across their operations on an absolute basis by twenty fifty or earlier they WanNa get to net zero on carbon in their oil and gas production by twenty fifty or sooner they wanna cut their carbon intensity of their products that they sell by fifty percent by twenty fifty or sooner they need to install methane measurement on all of their processing sites and reduced intensity by fifty percent and they want to increase the proportion of investment into non oil and gas businesses over time. And they're even saying that is going to increase while their oil and gas investment is going to decrease and then there are other five goals. Those are sort of the five internal goals the five external goals are that they want to more actively advocate for Pie policies that support at zero including carbon pricing. And what they would do is shift dollars from reputational advertising so all those ads you see on tv about how awesome oil and gas are. Those funds would be shifted into policy advocacy. They would incentivize their employees to you know to deliver on some of these goals. They would set expectations for relationships with trade associations. And that's gonNA come out later. This month and analysis of what trade associations they want to still affiliate with and which ones they can no longer affiliated with based on this new direction They want to be recognized as being very transparent and align with all these disclosure groups to make sure that people know what they do remember. They have had people protesting outside of their headquarters every day for a very long time And then they want to launch a new team to help others decarbonised and to look for New Investments. So with these ten aims. He's really serious about this and I think it is setting. A new trajectory for the company will be really interesting to see in September. What the details of that are and how they do plan to go to net zero on the carbon intensity and all that

BP chief backs shift towards renewable energy
"Choo investor resolutions at BP's annual meeting, and Abidine this week, shade high pressure is building on oil companies to take action on climate change political discusses, how the oil companies are responding with Angela Weaver, and blessing hook. Up already the way. People around the work for her life. At the same time, Harmon emissions need to come out at a much faster pace that is seeking. That more energy emissions dot is to charge. That was Helga loaned, the chairman of BP outlining the company's commitment to transitioning to a low carbon energy system at their AGM in Aberdeen. This week shareholders had to climate change resolutions to vote on an epidemic. Edgeley. You were up there what happened. So everyone was waiting for these two resolutions to come up for debate. Now, one was backed by p and brought forward by climate action. One hundred plus which is an initiative, led by group of investors, and they were calling on BP to demonstrate how its business strategy aligns with the Paris climate goals. And now the second resolution was proposed by follow this dodge shareholder group, and essentially this one was different because not only was it calling on the P to set targets for its carbon emissions going forward. But these targets also should include those of. Of its products, so essentially, the emissions of its consumers, and that's essentially what shall has done. That's what shall has agreed to do. Right. But in this case, BP management back the climate action one hundred plus resolution but not the other one. Why was that BP claims that the follow this resolution would not allow for flexibility through the energy transition? They say we don't know what this energy transition is going to look like we don't want to put hard targets are legally binding on ourselves or on our consumers who's use of our products, we can't control. That's what they say. And does that sound like a reasonable explanation to you? So this is where it gets very interesting because most climate activists and increasing the investors say that these emissions from the use of the products are essential to accounting for how we really progress through this, energy transition and oil and gas. Companies must be held accountable for these emissions now. I do have some sympathy for oil and gas companies in the sense that they don't know what this energy transition looks like, however, most people, I speak to you think that BP right now is in the same position that shell was in a few years ago. And at some point they too would also have to include these emissions in some way into their forward-planning. Leslie, do you have any sympathy with bay pays position. I don't know about sympathy, but I think it is hard to account for the emissions of your consumer. So I can see the sort of legality of that narrow argument. I think what's been really interesting, though, is something that Angela is actually written about, which is where the RND dollars are going for these companies, although BP has started talking a lot more about climate change. And they've certainly made it a sort of headline item on their agenda there. Aren. These spending hasn't really followed. Those words. Yes. Exactly. And even in. The opinion piece that Helgoland wrote in the F T, and in his public comments it a, he's very clear that BP's also going to have to transform its business. But what does this look like it's unbelievably murky, we have no idea is he talking about increasing our independent low-carbon fuels and technologies is he talking about shifting towards renewable? It's not entirely clear. What this means in the BP context, and this is what investors really are trying to gain some more clarity on a lot of these invested discussions with the companies have essentially been company led. It's what the companies are comfortable with talking about BP's, not committing to a particular direction. They say we've been there before, under the John Brown era petroleum beyond petroleum. They invested huge amounts in renewables. And they ended up losing a lot of money. And so this was the point that Helga loons made at the GM, as well as in the opinion piece, which is that we want to be. An investable company and I think that was his way of saying, we need to keep on investing in oil and gas. And there is a real dichotomy there because ultimately BP makes money from selling fossil fuels calls emissions, and they don't really know how they will make money if they stop doing that. So I sort of get the sense that, while there's a lot more talk about it. There's not a clear answer of where revenue is going to come from if they're no longer selling fossil fuels on the other hand, you've got companies like shell and hotel. You know, the really going out there saying, we're investing in not just gasp, renewables and renewable power. And this is all feature. But most analysts who look at the sector and even the executives themselves will say to the margins here, incredibly low compared to is stark and traditional businesses. But also, we don't really know what this is going to look like for us. And this is the point BP's trying to make, which is we're not going to go down that path blindly again. Just taking a punt on the huge amounts of pressure from every. Body in terms of crime activists, and the investors who want this investment into the cleaner fuels business and into renewables. I mean Greenpeace this week, blockaded BP's entrances. I was going to ask you about that it was quite an extraordinary defection even for Greenpeace because they actually stopped staff going into BP headquarters Ryan, where it's quite interesting to compare that to the shell AGM which was happening on the same day over in the Hague. And apparently, there were very few protests or any sort of action going on over there, certainly nothing, like staff being stopped from getting into buildings and things. And do you think that that's because shell has been clearer about its determination to invest in renewables, and lower carbon forms of energy, then B P so far? And do you think that BP is worried about that? And that's why it took the steps that it did this way. I think BP's just a different point than shell shell faced this kind of backlash Affi years ago. Let's also remember. That shell is very much a dodge company and this huge amounts of domestic pressure. And this is now only ricocheting around the world, you know, to all the European companies as well as US counterparts, but, you know, the protesters this week were saying to be, you must shift all your investment into renewables, or go bust, but it's not entirely clear if that's the strategy. Yeah. And this is just the latest example we've seen of shareholders, trying to pressure oil and gas companies and indeed coal companies to disclose more about the future plans and targets and investments and talk more about the financial and physical risks that they might face by climate change. Ultimately, do you really think this is going to shift the dial? When it comes to lowering global carbon emissions through the investors say, there's a sort of a three pronged approach here. The first is to get these companies to be more transparent. Then it's to get them to set tie. Targets on their emissions and then the third bit of this strategy is to shift their investments towards cleaner fuels cleaner energies into ready. Get a handle on the investment component here, but it's not clear to me, how long that is going to take an if these companies are going to agree to shift the businesses in a meaningful way. And there's also just a place devil's advocate. I think there is a real question about what is the company's responsibility versus the government's responsibility? Where does the role of policymakers and business leaders begin? I mean at time when we're seeing global emissions still rising. The world is not on track to meet the Paris climate goals. A lot of that is due to government inaction as well as what companies are doing. We've seen that globally, governments haven't really stepped up to make the types of commitments that they would need to live in a two degree world, which then sort of empowers the companies to say, well, if the governments haven't figured this. Out, then why is that our job? So I can sort of see their twenty few in that way, would sort of just make two further points, which is that let's be clear. The world is still using huge amounts of oil and gas will using one hundred million barrels a day of oil. So from the company's point of view, if the demand is there, at least for now, why would they pull back that's the first point? And the second point is that, you know, to what extent can these companies really transition? Yeah. Just finally one way that the oil majors trying to prove that this series of crime. It changes by making these big investments in renewable energy. We saw one of those this week lately that you wrote about that actually shows that this getting quieter crowded field. Yes, we've just seen two of Europe's largest utilities g of France and EDP of Portugal tie up all of their offshore wind assets, which is going to create a bit of an offshore wind behemoth. An already we've seen a former oil and gas company known as Dong become or stud. It's now the world's largest offshore wind developer, and we do see more and more traditional energy companies, try and go that direction the company, formerly known as Stott oil now Ecuador, it also has a growing offshore wind business, so there is some indication that the traditional energy companies are really pushing in that direction although globally last year. What was very striking is that we had some numbers out a couple of days ago from the. A that suggested total global investment in clean energy. In fact fell a little bit last year. Despite the surge of interest from European energy groups, the global picture is still not quite as rosy. Thank you, Leslie, and angelie. That was police Clark took into a senior energy.

"John Brown and Colby's leave, regardless of how much money they're making our deserve to make their players that were upgrades over who Josh Allen was throwing to last year, which allowed them to open the door in the draft. And next thing you know they're sitting there at pick nine and a guy like Ed Oliver falls to them anti, I thought the bills they built the depth. They built the quote unquote. Blue chip players in this roster. And I don't think anything they really did this off season. Hamstrings them going forward. None of the moves put a constraint on their ability to continue to build this in twenty twenty and beyond. Yeah. I agree with you. And I think all of her they just pulled the trigger on as a value pick. They didn't have a huge media defensive tackle. They took Harrison Phillips, in the third round last year star low, too late did not play up to his contract, but he's only a year into it. So it would have been there other tackle. But now they have some interior pass rush presence what I love, especially field is there last year their offense of line was only quickly be least athletic in the AFC and probably the entire NFL, and that was immediately. Remember week one against Baltimore. The ravens came in and did it all kinds of stunts and, and twists and gap exchanging blitzes, trying to anything they could to make those lime and move laterally, and it was immediately put on fills Lehman can't move laterally in buffalo. Oh, and now the blueprints out and everybody had their way with the bills and their running game was about being as a result as well. So to go out and get you mentioned Morris. They also got Quinton Spain, who's an up and down left guard. But he's a reliable piece it enough starter. Let's call them that they drafted Cody four in the second round, we saying, Adrian, Waddell, Tien Seki some veteran tackles, one of those guys will stabilize the right tackle spot. So four out of five O line positions have been upgraded there. I agree there the offensive line. If nothing else Andy they've given themselves several dark throws at the board other than Morse. I don't know that buffalo knows for sure. If any of those guys will be long-term long-term starters when I mean by that is in two years. But I think that you're right in that they at least have found somebody who will be upgrade on Jordan mills at right tackle going forward. And I think the value third offensive tackle in this league is perhaps overlooked. It's really hard to find good offensive tackles. If you can find a sufficient, third one, it goes a long way just a really difficult position to keep guys. Healthy. Oh year. The next question that we wanted to address your Andy in terms of the bigger picture off season views was what coaching hire? Most intrigue, you and certainly there were plenty of off season changes in the coaching and scouting world. So let's narrow this to which new head coach was most intriguing to you. I think it's your buddy leflore field because when was the last time that we saw. And maybe we even seen this in our lifetimes at all. We're both what early mid thirties around there. Thirty three what, what are you thirty to hold your thirty one student? Yeah. Well, our lifetime have we ever seen superstar quarterback have a new head coach come in and the head coach is mission is basically, to overhaul the offense of system and put in an all new approach..

"john brown" Discussed on The Adam Schefter Podcast
"I don't know if you saw an image after he signed his contract, he grabbed his helmet and put it all on walking down the hall, and it was just there was an energy in the building that day. And he definitely was a big big reason for you also made some moves it wide receiver. John Brown, coal Beasley. What will they bring to the buffalo offense? Well, first of all they'll bring experience, you know, we had a younger crew guys last year just where we were in. The in the build, but Beasley even though they're they're both small John Brown will bring a vertical threat for us. And then Beasley will work the middle. So two guys that have experienced that. We'll be dependable cold. That's the thing. I always knows about him on tape is he runs his route so precise. And I thought of the slot guys that were available. He was the guy that was the quickest immediate separator, you know, at the top of his route, especially on those inside option routes, the guys don't know if he's going inside or out, and and so I think he'll be a guy for Josh that Josh can always know if things break down. I know we're Kohl's going to be if if the routes call from run six yards, and then he'll be right where he's supposed to be. And that's a lost. Art, some guys don't run their route depths to especially as young players. And I think that happened a little bit the Josh last year, and then, you know, John Brown, we we were in on John a year ago before we sign well Baltimore. But the thing is he and his agent and told us was he was looking. For approve at deal and our quarterback situation was unsettled in. So he decided to go to Baltimore and play with Flaco. So it made sense sound reasoning. We were you know, we had the draft yet. So it's funny. How it works out a year later to get John? What will John Brown at your offense? You know, he'll definitely add the vertical threat for us. You know, we had Robert Foster last year, but you can't add too much beat. And you know, a guy that defenses will have to be aware of getting deep because our guy can make that throw even if it's sixty seventy yards down field. Josh implant in fire. And so I think, you know, it's exciting to add another guy like like, a Robert Foster a smaller version to be that vertical threat and open up the middle for coal Tyler Kroft and anybody else that works underneath we're talking about wide receivers. And obviously one of those story lines that set in motion the chain of events that led to Colby's Lee and led to John Brown. Was Antonio Brown not wanting a buffalo when you look back on that? Now, what do you take from that experience? And what are you? Think of everything that transpired their first off everything happens for a reason. And so. Shonan are always going to look for ways. If we see a guy that's a talented player. We're always going to look into it and see the particulars of why the players up for trade, how he would fit schematically how he would fit culture wise. And so obviously the talent is there. You know? He's a. He's one of the top receivers in the league. And obviously that was an area of need for us. So we looked into it at the end of the day. It wasn't the right fit with all the parameters that we needed to meet compensation wise, pick wise, and so we looked into it. But it didn't happen. And we're glad with where we're at dealing get close. No, no, no. I mean at the end of the day when you to do a deal like this you have to agree to terms with a team. And then you also have to agree with the agent on what the compensation is going to be are they coming at that package or are they expecting a new deal, which she ultimately got. So you know, we were never able to close it knowing that I wasn't comfortable with the full package of things you brought up Josh Allen. How would you assess where he's at going into his second year? Right. Josh improved during the year..

"They also faced a softer schedule. And you know, Baker, of course, was getting rid rid of the ball. Much more quickly after they moved on from Todd Haley and Hugh Jackson. But I I would like to see them in the draft bringing some competition at the tackle position. I don't know if you can feel real comfortable going into a season with Greg Robinson. Locked in is restarting left Dhakal. Number one receiver Odal Beckham junior. That's interesting considering all the other weapons they have by like it. I like it. We'll see us even tweeting stuff about he's going dark, and then he deletes it. I don't know. I'm a little skeptical still of kinda wear his heads at. But he is a very very talented guy. What about a couple of guys that the Bill signed Evan? Let's go to buffalo. John Brown and Cole Beasley where are you? On those two guys. Colby's Lee one of the one of the signings that I liked least during the free agency period from both a real life and fantasy standpoint I don't I I just do the style of player that he is really not fit with Josh Allen. Who's like, you know, a big boom bust power thrower. You know, that's not. That's not the kind of skill set that we're looking for really to match up with with with Cole Beasley, I think. John Brown does fit in with Josh Allen from skillset standpoint. Because in your one of Josh Allen, he attempted nineteen point seven percent of his throws twenty plus yards down field by far the most in the NFL where to Sean Brown. Excel getting open downfield. You know, he's kinda like. Like the the dog in the frisbee. He can go get it. You know? And I think that Jon Brown is that kind of player and. Josh Ronald as rookie had one one player kinda like that Robert Foster in undrafted rookie, and they had a lot of success going down the football field. I think that they can they now they have to those guys. And I think that's the right way to build around Josh island. Not to get, you know, big slow receivers that kind of enhanced his is completion rates heretical by you're just having wide catch radiuses. But by having guys who can run down the football field. Josh brown. I mean, he's not an accurate thrower. He's gonna miss a lot of throws to them. But man when they when they when they hit and they're gonna hit eventually because like I said John Brown can go get it Robert Foster can go get it. The knows are going to be really really big plays in potentially game changing place..

Unless you put this guy in office who never was elected. And if you look at the demonstrations in Venezuela. Those people. It's a breakdown between light skin people who support go, I do and the United States, and what we talked about the rich here and socialism, we're ready to invade a country to give that oil did a coke brothers and British Petroleum told him a billion dollars in Venezuelan oil money delay break their country. I don't think our soldiers are worth diet for Venezuelan oil. So we can feed are rich people here. Hold on Ron because I haven't seen anything, we're we're preparing any type of invasion, or whatever. And as far as I know I've got stories in says that this other guy that you're talking about he was elected by the people. We know that this communist run in Venezuela. He's Luton all the wealth out of the country. The people starving on the street. That's all documented fact that inflation is higher than we can even dream. What it's like, it's nothing more than you. Could you could say the s whole or hellhole or whatever? And now you got blackout heavy stinking power down there for the people. How to help the people in the hospitals, and like they're talking about on dialysis. How the hell they even supposed to live. Well, the leadership down there don't care because that's what you get. When you get a communist dictator a ruthless thug. And then he's turned into machine gun down as people or shooting them on down the street. So I don't know anything about. Light-colored guys back this guy or dark color guides. Only thing I knows I got two stories right here exodus from Venezuela. Because the way these people are treated, and it's a common denominator and sure I know all about powerful. Rich guys went the oil or minerals from different countries that stuff's going on all around the world, Ron. You're right date. But you're talking about the border. If we if we stabilized and we have five thousand marines, it may be higher on the border with Venezuela stationed in Columbia..
