The Supreme Court Allows More Time For Pennsylvania's Mail In Voting
"The Supreme Court allows extra time for Pennsylvania's mail in ballots by Marc Sherman and Mark Levy. Washington. The Supreme Court will allow Pennsylvania to count mailed in ballots received up to three days after the November third election rejecting a Republican plea in the presidential battleground state. The justices divided four four on Monday an outcome that upholds a state Supreme Court ruling that required county election officials to receive and count mailed in ballots that arrive up until November sixth. Even if they don't have a clear postmark as long as there is not proof it was mailed after the polls closed Republicans including President Donald Trump's campaign have opposed such an extension arguing that it violates federal law that sets Election Day as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and that such a decision constitutionally belongs to lawmakers not the courts. The State Republican Party Chairman Lawrence Tavis said the party disagrees with the decision and noting the four four decision. It only underscores the importance of having a full supreme court as soon as possible to be clear. The Supreme Court decided not to grant stay which does not mean the actions of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court would withstand a legal challenge to their judicial overreach. Should the court hear the case tape said? Nancy Patty. Mills Chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party accused Republicans of trying to sow confusion and disenfranchise eligible voters. This is a significant victory for Pennsylvania voters. Mills said in a statement, the Democratic majority on the state's High Court had cited warnings that postal service delays could invalidate numbers of ballots and surging demand for mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic to invoke the power used previously by the state's courts to extend election deadlines during a disaster. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the three liberal justices to reject Pennsylvania Republicans call for the court to block the State Court ruling. Justices Samuel Alito Neal Gorsuch Brett. Cavanaugh and Clarence Thomas would have required the state to stop accepting absentee ballots when the polls close on November third. There were no opinions accompanying the order. So it is impossible to say what motivated either group of justices the conservative justices have been reluctant to allow court quarter changes to voting rules close to an election. The court also is weighing a similar issue from Wisconsin but in that case, the ruling being challenged comes from a federal appeals court and the Democrats who are asking the justices to step in. Most states make election day the deadline, but eighteen states half of which backed trump the twenty sixteen election have a post election day deadline with nearly a million votes already cast in Pennsylvania, we support the court's decision not to meddle in our already working system Pennsylvania's Attorney General Democrat Josh Shapiro said in a statement. On, a separate track Republicans in the State House have pressed Governor Tom Wolfe a Democrat to agree to eleventh-hour legislation to eliminate or limit the three days under the court's order. The case is one of many partisan battles being fought in the state legislature and the courts primarily over a male in voting. In Pennsylvania amid concerns that a presidential election result will hang in limbo for days on a drawn out vote count in the battleground state. And Pennsylvania the State Democratic Party and a liberal group the Pennsylvania Alliance for retired Americans had salt an extension of the election day deadline to count mailed ballots. About two point eight, million mail in ballots requested and approximately nine hundred thousand returned democratic registered voters are requesting mail ballots at a nearly three to one ratio over Republicans, and it's September seventeenth ruling the divided state Supreme Court said ballots must be postmarked by the time polls close and be received by county election boards at five pm on November six, three days after the November third election it also said that ballots lacking clear postmark could be counted unless there was evidence that they were mailed after the polls closed.

What is happening with the Uighurs in China?
"In China's northwestern province of Xinjiang the government has locked up more than a million workers a Muslim minority in a vast gulag. The whole province is a surveillance state within a surveillance state. The government claims it's de radicalizing population prone to separatism. People in Xinjiang in your happy life people call for older to restored each in. China of course, is strongly opposed to any torture and prosecutor and discrimination of any avenue. Good people. This is not the case in. Child. The reality is that it's carrying out crimes against humanity. We're going to take a look at how the repression is tearing families apart and preventing leaguers from even having families. We'll speak. With. googlers forced always to look over their shoulders. And will find deeper complexity in the party's ethnic repression on a visit to a tourist town in south western China. Own.

It's difficult to get firsthand accounts of what's happening. Clearly the weaker inching John are unable to speak. But some brave souls have managed to escape and to tell their story. Our China Affairs at its her Gotti Epstein has been speaking to one of them. Presume Daoud and her three children, Fridays? We're probably the most terrifying day of the week. That was the day when officials would question students and schools in. The interrogators were looking for clues about the students lives at home. They wanted to know whether parents prayed or used Islamic greetings or talked to the children about the Prophet Muhammad. If the answers were in satisfactory they could result in a family member being sent to what they call a vocational training centre. or The camps in Xinjiang New Gulag. One Bologna. Bake. As.

Local police asked her why she did that. Victim get little bug Emerson S Allama. amendment. Get. Across the region, families will be appointed to write and read articles praising Seton King. Others might have to write and read hands to ethnic harmony and some have to praise other policies that the party is imposing on them including the placement of quote unquote Han relatives in their homes and given that much of this has has come out now in how do officials in an Giang justify that that level of surveillance Chinese officials say that they are doing this in the interests of the weaker pupil they say that they are fighting the three evils of terrorism extremism and separatism. They say, they are making Xinjiang's safer and they say they're making the weaker pupil happier. But in reality, the experience of workers in the camps and even outside the camps is one not of training for the workforce but of indoctrination of trying to strip them of their relief, zero city or of any sort of cultural practices which stripe them as efforts to be distinct and separate from China. So what happens to those who were deemed to broken these many tiny rules? Well, leaguers like Ms Dour are placed in the camps Kerr offenses was for. From Pakistan, where her husband is from visiting. Pakistan. A number of years earlier. Accepting money from a foreigner who has a family friend who lived in China and securing an American visa these are all things that police asked her about a four sending her straight off to a detention camp but she's apparent. I mean what happens to the children of Leaguers who are who are detained? Well, this is the problem that the Communist Party itself is having to face up to because they are struggling to deal with the children of the parents of detained in local work documents that we obtained the officials us a chilling tra- -nology to refer to children whose parents are being held by the state. They're called Don Kuhn or single hardship or swung double hardship depending on whether one or both parents. Has Been sent away and what the documents also reveals that they're struggling to keep pace. They want to place these children in boarding schools basically, and so they have spent a tremendous amount of money expanding boarding facilities at schools across sin John just in the last couple of years, and what are these schools like is not like kids version of the Gulag you described for adult that's not too far off I. mean. These schools many of them have high security fencing and that's even true of free kindergartens and they are places where the kids are kept. These are cited even in state propaganda sort of celebrated. But those kids are as young as months old the propaganda describes as being well fed well, cared for happy learning the national language. Chinese. The point of this propagandist to convey the notion that they are helping the. Wiegert children but obviously, the effect is much different. We've seen testimonies from Chinese teachers who volunteer work in these areas that described children in pretty bleak conditions and in terrible emotional states. But what do you mean by diluting the culture on the surface of it? This just looks like oppression does right and suppression, but it's pressure that's really designed to reduce the influence of the weaker people and even their numbers. Their policies supporting confirming ethic marriage trying to encourage weaker girls when the girl enough to marry Han men and their rewards associated with that those included job of flat or even keeping family members out of camp. And then there are other ways that they're literally trying to reduce the growth at least of the wieger population China enforces limits on families is in John. So women are being fitted with you at a much higher rate than the rest of China. Women with three children, which is the limit in rural. Xinjiang. are subjected to sterilization or a great risk of that. Ms Dawood yourself says, she was subjected to sterilization two thousand eighteen. The most abilities maintenance, this hustle bonetti based. So what do you think is going on here? Any seems the goal for the Chinese authorities is more than simply to to break the spirits of the weaker. I would say the situation meets every category of crimes against humanity literally has been defined by the Rome Statute International Criminal, court have forcible transfer population. You have imprisonment the prosecution against the identifiable group have the enforced disappearance of persons. It's a term that's codified international law and I think it's pretty clear and given that how should the world respond what is to be done about this? The most important thing is that governments need act they should offer asylum seekers. Should sanction officials in Xinjiang that are responsible issue banned goods made with forced labor I most important governments should speak up I think the right moment to call for action. You could see maybe China's cloud cracking a little under the weight of these horrific revelations. There are more people standing up to China and fewer standing with him today. There is a sign of hope for human rights and there is a sign of hope for the oppressed we were people in China.
Hubie Halloween and 25 Horror Movies Classics
"See. CR. Thank you for being here with me today I appreciate you man, of course, man this is this is our favorite time of year in a Lotta ways. Yeah. I, think last year we had a conversation like this to write maybe around the release of mid Samara about what what's going on with horror movies. What are horror movies? Now the world has gotten certainly more horrifying in the last twelve months. We had a conversation like this, but before we get into you. Know Lists and the Adam Sandler movie. I kinda wanted to take your temperature on where you think this genre is at right now. Well, I don't know that we can say for sure because I'm not sure what her movies were not getting, right? I don't know what movies maybe delayed release that didn't get the festival bump that they needed from south by or or any of the summer festivals that might have happened So it's hard to say but I I would say that. I find my appetite for her pretty much the same as it was any other year. I don't necessarily find as festive outside I. Don't know the for one thing in Los Angeles. It's ninety degree. So doesn't really feel like Halloween but for another I, just you know everybody's inside. So I don't think the decorations of really started to go up yet I. Don't know that I don't really spend a lot of time in the Candy Aisle at my age you know what I mean what do you think? Well, I know you're costume guy. No you'd like to dress up just on any. Oh Wednesday. So this must be strange for you to not be able to dress up as a giant clown and run the streets. Pharaoh that's me. Yeah I I agree I think it's a little bit strange to not feel the Halloween and the Halloween season but I don't necessarily associate horror just with Halloween. It's definitely a twelve month a year John Reform me and it's this month a year. History to Halloween is when we are allowed to watch nothing but her for like a month and not seemed like we should be committed. Yes. I appreciate my wife creating a dispensation for me to be able to watch some of the most vile things imaginable on film. I several consecutive days on quite a run right now catching up on stuff seeing stuff for the first time. A lot of it is very gross or very disturbing and you're right. There's like we psychologically grant ourselves the right to do this at this period, which is pretty pretty weird. Come on honey. It's early. October. Let's watch. Torn to pieces. Yeah anyhow. What about from the from the year so far in terms of the movies that have been released have there been any that you actually liked from the Shawna Yeah I've seen a couple of things on demand that I thought were pretty cool. Some of them were like late nineteen things that finally got released this year I think that you and I. were. Really looking forward to seeing a bunch of stuff in Texas at. South by which was the OH maybe we'll go to Austin rate like right as quarantine was starting to become really apparent as the magnitude of the situation was dawning on us. So I I really don't know if you've seen anything in twenty twenty that you think is like really stellar. You know. I wanted to ask from hosts. Really Right. Y-. Right. So I think that that's I think that's where we should take this conversation which is a couple years ago. I. Did this Horror Oscars Gimmick on the site where I picked my favorite. What I thought was the best horror movie of every year since Nineteen, seventy, nine and I like the idea of continuing to hand out that award every year and so looking at kind of what would be the five contenders from each year but as you say Most of the movies of that are sort of noisy studio movies have been pushed back candyman for example, Nia Costa's remake reimagining of that classic is not coming out now until next year that's a bummer i. a lot of people were looking forward to it. I was looking forward to it. We got a few things. You know we got we got the invisible man we got relic There have been a couple of movies on shudder shudder originals, one of which I'll talk about later in the show. But like blood quantum, which I talked about on the show Z, the Beach House that I think are all worth recommending but I wouldn't say are on the order of. Hereditary or or something like that. You know that we haven't had a movie like that. That feels like it's a little bit of a moment. A little bit of a movement announces a new filmmaker in a loud and noisy way I. Don't know you know. Host is really interesting. I think the last time the show is just you and I talked about we talked about host and it kind of feels like it has has the belt for horror movies in twenty twenty if only by circumstance. Yeah I think you mentioned all those other like invisible man etc I would the lodge in there I would throw the rental and they're like. They were really there is some pretty solid doubles to left, but the host was the one where I was just like a watch it again I'm going to recommend it's all my friends I'm going to try and get people who don't ordinarily watch horror movies to check it out, and especially if we're talking about twenty twenty horror movies, it is a movie that only have been made this year. Do you think that that's a movie that's going to stand the test of time or only resonating with people because we're all looking at screens all day. No I think it will I think it's going to be a good time capsule movie for sure. But I think that there are some things that it does and you talked about this with Alex Ross Perry, which was an amazing conversation. If people haven't checked it out and I, think his some of the stuff he said towards the end of your conversation will influence what we're about to talk about today. But I think that you guys talked a little bit about the technology and the the storytelling that it employs and how it seems to be like a step for like an evolution in what could we do with? The collective psychology of what's going on with people and that's what's awesome about her movies is that I feel like unlike any other genre really taps into how people are feeling at any given time about certain things it has at least that capacity.

That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador.

6 Russian Intelligence Officers Charged In High-Profile Cyberattacks
"Officers are facing federal charges in connection with a series of high profile and destructive cyberattacks. The charges, detail hacks targeting the 2017 French elections and the 2018 Winter Olympics, among others. NPR Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas is here to tell us more. Hi, Ryan first. What do we know about the defendants and what they've been charged with? The Justice Department says that these six defendants are all current or former officers with Russia's military intelligence agency. That's the GR EW. It's the same agency that was behind the hacks in the 2016 U. S election. Now there's no allegation in this indictment of any hacking tied to the 2020 vote, the one in the inn Ah, a couple of weeks. The defendants in this instance face seven counts in all those include hacking, conspiracy, wire fraud, computer fraud and identity theft. And this is for a really stunning string of cyber attacks over the past five years, U. S officials say this is the single most destructive and destructive Siri's of cyber attacks that have ever been attributed to just one group. What were those attacks Tell us about them? Well, it's a long list. It includes hacks in 2015 and 2016 that targeted Ah, Ukraine's power grid. Those knocked more than 200,000 customers offline at one point or as one U. S official said Today, it turned out the lights and turned off the heat in the middle of an eastern European winter. There's also a devastating attack known is not Pecchia that began in Ukraine and spread across the globe that crippled companies and industries and hospitals. It cause billions of dollars in damages, including here in the U. S. There are hacks targeting the investigations by British and international authorities into the use of a Russian nerve agent to poison a former Russian spy in the UK. That was the episode involving the Spice Sergei Scribble and a few others write. Each of these incidents has been widely reported on their own. It's interesting to see all of these people tied together with all of them exactly right, And there's actually even Maurine the indictment their cyber attacks that targeted the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. And then there's the hack and leak operation against the 2017 French elections that targeted the political party of France is now president Emmanuel Macron. So it is really quite a list any insight into why the defendants allegedly chose those targets. The Justice Department says that all of these hacks furthered Russia's interests further. Russia's Geo Geo political aims You look at Ukraine Russia has been in a grind in war with the government there in the east in the 22 18 Olympics. Russian athletes couldn't compete under the country's flag because of a massive doping scandal. In the case of the nerve agent poisoning, British and international authorities had pinned the blame for that attack on the Kremlin. And in the case of France's elections, the operation there fits into Russia's geopolitical goals. Now the head of the Justice Department's National Security Division, John Dimmers, said today that Russia Stands alone in the sort of destructive cyberattacks that its agents conduct. Here's a bit of what he said. No country has weaponized. It's cyber capabilities as maliciously and irresponsibly as Russia. Wantonly, causing unprecedented collateral damage to pursue small tactical advantages and fits of spite. Surrounding these defendants are presumably still in Russia and not in U. S custody. What does that mean about next steps for this case? Well, none of these men are in U. S custody right with that, And it is unlikely that any of them will ever face trial here in the United States. One of them actually is already facing charges in the U. S. He was charged by special Counsel Robert Mueller in connection with Russia's hacking in the 2016 election. So there is a big question of just how effective bringing charges like these are But Justice Department officials say it's important to put the weight of the U. S government behind these sorts of allegations. It helps expose what hackers are up to, and the methods that they used. It also makes clear to the international community what Russia is doing. And while it may not be a satisfying as seeing the defendants in court, U. S officials say, it is still a valuable thing to do. NPR's Ryan Lucas. Thank you. Thank you.

And like you know, there's also this like subversion of expectation like Jesus was you know it talks about the suffering servant like that is not who they thought. The Messiah was going to be he was going to like come out of the you know out of the stump of David a root of just you know all of these things and so it could just be like, Hey, you need to wait until this whole story gets told before you start yapping about what's actually going on. Okay. Let's talk about Mary wife of Columbus. There's just not a lot known about her unfair burden. But she may have been Joseph's sister-in-law. So Jesus aunt cut we know she was just sister-in-law because it says it's Mary sister, right? It's but it but it says Mary sister not it's Joseph's brother's wife. That is who she is traditionally, but I mean like may if the Scripture says it's Mary sister. Right, as it says in the Bible that it's Mary sister, right then that would be bad nature Joseph sister-in-law I get you saying it's also like it could have been his sister-in-law separately from it. Being Mary Sister Right what I'm saying is Shh Mary of Columbus Clovis was potentially Joseph's brother right? We're saying the same thing are we won't because if the bobble says I, think you're saying direct sister and she's saying it could have been less expensive. Than what the Bible says just because of some of the translation stuff. Okay. Yeah. Closest may have been simians father. So Simeon was an early church father the second bishop of Jerusalem which would make Simeon was like a big kind of second generation Christian essentially making semi Jesus cousin they're to me they're too many Mary's like there's too many Mary's confusing in the tax gap using in the original we just don't know but the so the takeaway though is this isn't just like a Mary who's passing through town like a drifter. Mary, this was probably someone who has like tangentially related to. Jesus in some way way. Yeah. So if she's not so even if she's not married sister, which seems weird that we would translate it as she's Mary sister, right? Well, there's this whole which I think is an interesting thing to note because like how are people supposed to expect to like if every translation says it's Mary sister and they were like I was translated right right well, and also like there's this traditional viewpoint that an who is Mary's mother saint an had three daughters from from three different husbands not like in a way in a like they all di Di way not seriously but. Anyway she named them all Mary. So that's also were just like George Foreman Yeah? Yeah. Jerry just like George Foreman. Yeah. She's the Bible that's what it gets. And this also ties into you like what's up would Jesus's family and widened Jesus Family Take Over Guardianship of Mary? I think Jamie I think you're right when you talked about how his brothers didn't believe in him Jesus talked a lot about kingdom bonds over familial bonds.

"This is actually lead to doubts as to the as to John being the of his own rather than he just threw it in the the bulloch and other happening. Goule time. So we'll talk to you later. Scholars think that John One fourteen which and the word became and lived among us and we have seen his glory the glory as of a father's only son full of grace and truth is actually an allusion to the transfiguration. I. Liked that because it feels consistent with him being like I'm so casual about whatever it's fine. But also John's Gospel is less of a narrative than the others. So it feels like a weird thing to it still feels like a weird thing to leave act. Truly other than the crucifixion. Moses Elijah have shown exactly, and we'll, and that really speaks alike the transfiguration was like this this cornerstone, right? Like I think a lot for us like evangelical really focused on the crucifixion and the resurrection which important. Obviously. But in other kind of sex or denominations, they really really find the transfiguration to be more of that capstone. Just think about how many times mocks told me he ran into common at an airport right i. just think if you have a weird encounter, you tell people about almost written a book called the time I met common but John was just like, yeah, whatever whatever it's almost as. So knocks. You were asking about the Messianic secret. So, this is a theory that posits that the gospel of Mark is not a narrative or a biography or memoir, but more of a theological interpretation Jesus can't it's it. It's it's this idea of like can't be the messiah like he can't. He can't be recognized as the Messiah Until resurrection from the dead because that's the whole that's like one of his whole things but then he was also the Messiah all along. So like how did people know we'll because he kept telling them. Like and we this is all over the gospels like don't tell anyone I just hills. You don't tell anyone I just raises from the dead like don't it's not my time. He says at the wedding and Qena like this is not my time We talked a little bit about this in the General for Judas, but it was blasphemous to claim to be God or the Messiah, which I get. But like also, how are you supposed to know when the real guy shows up like? What are you supposed to do? You know we talked about this in the faith adjacent club about the book of Longings the other night. How cognizant was Jesus of his Messianic status? Like did he always know did Mary how to sit down and talent? I thought that was such an interesting discussion. You'll have the club on because I..

"Right? He's not human Jesus anymore but a moment like this is like Oh. Yeah. Like you gotTa make sure you pay your taxes you know to your waitresses, waiters and waitresses he still very much in the moment of I'm still human here and I have a sensibility and I liked that that concept is so just think so lovely because it's also not about necessarily what he's worried about but maybe what she's worried That she's worried about what's about to happen to me was going to. God, but she also is also Human Brian going how am I going to make it in the world? I'm going to be a you know a decrepit widow sure and I love that he is speaking to her worries you in a moment at that he's dying. Yeah and if you want if you choose to interpret this is the larger that exchange as a larger metaphor for him trying to comfort everyone in the. Everyone left behind like you're gonNA be okay maybe you can do that but I just liked that aspect of him not just being like I'm getting crucified this sucks. But also think about other people, right? Good Job Jesus Okay. So that's the scripture for this new epilogue what happens to John does he just take care of Mary does he just have her living in mother-in-law sweet at his house? He does until she dies and then he actually leaves he goes to emphasise He writes three letters. They'd be famously become strong second and third John. He's been exiled because he was preaching the Gospel and he gets exiled to Patmos where he gets a vision that's really weird and it's a book we will never cover on the show maybe. The Bible's I. So he writes. Revelation. He eventually makes it back to emphasise is. A very ordinary. Like average daft much as you could ask for in about ninety eight. So, he lives like a long time. And then tradition holds. He's the only disciple to die of old age rather than to be martyred. Again. He's always telling us he's beloved. Listen in first second and third John He does not use his own name he refers to himself as the elder. Oh yet again, never bring himself and here's my favorite fun fact Turlington. From the late second early third century wrote that before the Romans banished him to Patmos, they brought him into a coliseum. They dumped him in a VAT of boiling oil Kerr and when he emerged unharmed, the entire Coliseum converted to Christianity owes nap. Good John Jock because he just really doing that just isn't really what that's like an NC INC like right after the intermission of the moment that okay let's see. Who or what the L. for you in the story gets disciples this at it's really took the not because of what they do but because we what we think of them because of how they act I, think the disciples bad pr for a very long time because we've always been like those days win God literally chose them because he saw something in them that they're flawed I like that peters like like you said I don't know where to put my hand. And just imagined James and John Going we have to we have to leave we have the league. And then they don't they just and I feel like we. The church teaches.

"Thank you and now back to the show verse six when you saw his mother in disciple whom he loves sandy nearby also disciple who super fast and runs very fast. Forty Times he said to his mother woman behold your son for seven. They said to disciple behold your mother and from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. So this is This kind of beautiful it's Kinda. Sad. Yeah. But it's also for me the stressful because I'm the kind of guy who I strive for clarity right? I want understanding and that's why I've never wanted to be on a game show because I feel like they explain the rules but they don't explain the nuance of the rules and I'm always worried I'm not gonna you on the price is right or just survivors like this challenge do I carry the bag of corn here in tropic it's just really confusing and just feel like Geez rushed like I. Know He's going through some stuff in the moment he was literally die he's literally dying but also I imagine just generally having some questions of like does she live with me? Do I call her once a week like how does this work I mean culturally okay. So in the Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible that I love it said that Mary was probably a widow at this age because she was in her forty, right? Hello. Wow that's tough with a lot of life. We don't have a lot longer to which is so funny because. We're going to see how long John Lived. So it's nuts but that because Jesus was the oldest child, it would have been his house legal responsibility to care for his because women didn't have any legal seating without a male advocate when it by another male in the family if it wasn't someone. So naming somebody was important like it was something that he should do. Yes. It's weird that it wasn't one of his brothers Yeah. I wouldn't or why was he worried about it if it's like what we know so little about I, mean we know James a pillar of the church, but there's argument that he didn't become back till. After Jesus sure from dad that his his siblings did not believe he was the Messiah. And really chastised his mother for that. You know there's lots of controversy from somebody will say those those guys are not brothers cousins. It's as it gets a little murky maybe Eric speak more into now. So but I just think. It says a lot about the relationship if you go this is the this is the woman who I love when it was important. This whole understand I'm not just our son part of a story. That she's a critical part of I want her to be taken care of I'm going to let this guy he's the guy eight. He's the only guy left standing. Yeah. Yeah. You know I think just like we're talking about Peter having this transcendent religious experience, and then to talk about like a ten placement on the mountain, you know it reaffirms and. His humanity I think similarly like you're saying this moment a so I think it's easy to get swept away with. He's become Lightning Guy God cloud came by he's crucify is GONNA rise? Again.

They documented all of their translation decisions from the original languages in over sixty thousand translator notes the result total transparency into not only their translation but all of your favorite translations to used by me our own resonant.

Is James who he is also a disciple. He is the brother of our subject today, John? He's in the inner circle. He what we know about him big picture is the first apostle to be martyred and they're only two disciples to in the Bible their recorded. We talked about the other one last episode, which was Judas and he did not write the book of James, which is found later in the new test confusing. Using again, Mary's and James Speaking of Mary's Mary wife of Globus Jesus Auntie. Think. So maybe beer into Dulles. So she's also into CEPA as well and and then we have John Right. Yes, and we've had John The fun part is like this isn't going to be a John. He's there. He's certainly at the party is going to be a John Heavy episode but I think that's okay because John is really been threaded and bread trump throughout the season and I think that's why we wanted to end. With him because she had so many encounters with him already, and it would seem like of all the disciples left it feel it would feel weird not to talk about just. Yup. So he is one of Jesus's at twelve disciples. He's actually mentioned by name in all the gospels except the one named after him he never uses his own name. He wrote you. He does refer to himself as beloved decide that's why the. Because you would call them humble but then you're like maybe not. A prominent leader in the early church. Actually Paul. The apostle points to him as the authority that they should look to you and making decisions. He's actually in more biblical accounts than any of the other twelve disciples. Okay. some even he proudly beats Peter yet again sure sure. He's the author of five books in the Bible John his own epistles. First Sean Second Jonathan John which are weird Listen you just read them they're weird. Things like love but then there's a lot of.

Love so much the only ones that get a nickname it's a really good nickname. Well, it comes from Luke nine. He said they had a thunderous nature because there was like this group of Maertens who did not welcome Jesus into their village and James and John were like Jesus to you want us to call down from heaven and destroy them. We will receive Jesus. Oh, even murder them and Jesus was like okay boys now. And you're now the fun. So John himself is in two circles of three. He's in this inner circle.

We just think that the Bible has some pseudo stories and we'll talk more about them in a voice that is more every man or every woman. The conversation that will take place episode is meant to be more casual, not out of disrespect, but in an effort to better understand. The story, this season of the Bible bench is all about that Ragtag Group of during acolytes we lovingly refer to the disciples. This is the season finale of the classic episodes but make sure you just go to wherever you listen to podcasts subscribed trial. You'll know when we start back season eleven plus don't forget to follow along with us on instagram and twitter at the Bible.

The Tony Kornheiser show is on now. All right. So you when you do a podcast, you plan for it. The plan originally was not to do one today. The plan was that I would not be in Washington that I would be in Delaware and we weren't even going to have it but those changed and I decided to do a podcast and one of the reasons I did is because this is actually this is inside. Baseball for people this is actually the Last Day of my contract here in other words I start in my mind I start September first and I end August thirty first for purposes of how many shows you do in a year and stuff like that because of the pandemic we haven't been able to do the type of show or the amount of show that I've wanted to do, but this gets us to a very, very nice round number one, hundred and seventy. So I was very pleased to be able to do this show I had a lot of things to talk about including disasterous. Barbecue with chicken. Over the weekend that I wanted to talk about and I certainly wanted to talk about having watched both Putz live yesterday, and we will get to this was Steve Sands both Putz live yesterday a Dustin Johnson on what was the last stroke of the tournament either way make or miss hits a forty three foot putt to force a playoff and then Jon Rahm from essentially the same place except maybe fifteen to twenty feet further by twenty flicks back hits the same pot AFC and wins and wins right in the middle right in the heart and I wanted to talk about all that and I plan to talk about all that and then Nigel about ten minutes ago you texted me what? Some very sad news that's being reported. That former Georgetown head coach John. Thompson has passed away at the age of seventy eight. Now, there's this is being reported by Ninety Sports Radio and it's being reported by WJLA which is channel seven Washington DC and you don't. Ever, get this wrong, right if you get this wrong, you're out of a job. So I'm going to assume even though I don't have anything else to go on I'm going to assume this is true and I'm going to change the beginning of this show and I'm GonNa talk a little bit about John Thompson who I admired greatly. And I liked an awful lot and always in tribute to John Thomson I called him a worthy adversary he was very difficult to cover. Very. Difficult. He was an extraordinarily private man extraordinarily large man and could use his size to be extraordinarily intimidating. He's very, very smart. So covering Georgetown with John Around with the notion of Hoya, paranoia in the late seventies and early eighties stretching through the ninety s made it very difficult for a lot of people to get to the truth you couldn't really talk to anybody on the team unless. John gave you permission. You could talk to John into talk to John, at Georgetown, you had to go upstairs three or four flights of stairs and go through four or five locked doors. It was honestly like the beginning of get smart I mean you just you made an appointment with John John John did everything he could to intimidate you physically and intellectually and John and I got along we. He he was not able to sleep. He I'm not saying he was at INSOMNIAC, but he did not sleep much. So the best interviews and Wilpon will be on later in the show and he'll tell you this John would call you a two or three in the morning. Return your calls calls it two or three in the morning and I made it very clear. If the first time he did that that I wasn't going to do that anymore. I wasn't going to get up a two and three in the morning to take these calls. Others did junior did will bond did you pretty much had to? If you covered the team, you had to do that and John was always engaging look I wrote a big piece about twenty years ago. For an ESPN book on the. Greatest athletes of the twentieth century. One of them and deservedly. So was Bill Russell the greatest winner ever in the NBA. Bill Russell. And the entire story that I wrote about Bourassa talk to Bill Russell, Bill Russell and talk to anybody he and talk. So there's no point in me even talking to Bill Russell I later heard from a family member that they'll Russell said, well, why didn't he ask to talk to me and I started to laugh because Bill Russell never talked to anybody I went to John Thompson you'd say, well, why would you go to John? Thompson, well, John Thompson. Bill Russell's teammate and backup center for the Boston. Celtics for a few years in the sixties John Thompson was himself a great basketball player at Providence College and was in the pros backing up Bill Russell and John Thompson was so smart and could tell me all about Bill Russell. Tell me everything that I didn't know and and the quotes in that piece all John I could never thank John Enough I had. As I said. An odd relationship with John but it was filled with admiration and respect and even some good humor when John, after John, retired and I was at Johns. Retirement is to when he left Georgetown he just left one day and called a bunch of people up and had a press conference and.

The thing with with with dusk is nobody played. It was super expensive ends. If to get the the proper backboard so very often they were pieces of plywood with with netball hoops and netball hoops are smaller Half the size they a- basketball only just goes through them. I played on one of those for the first six months of my career I certainly have had a home. I had a netball hoop. That's what I practiced on. It had no backboard. Basketball is not was not a part of our infrastructure infrastructure. It is much more now in the UK but But the boys still not particularly evolved but back then it was it was like a tiny cabal of people. You you would you. Would you would know once you play for you. You've pretty much everybody in the country who played basketball. That's how small it was. And so how would you explain into people how how difficult it was to go from that. How bad you were at the beginning? You didn't pick up a basketball too late right. Yep Seventeen years old. I picked picked up a basketball. That whole experience of meeting. Those people was when I was seventeen. I play for one year in the UK. I was very fortunate to have a coach who sadly sadly he passed away. This year. a guy called Dave Mcclain. Who who who told me I had to go because there was nothing more that I could learn in the UK? Hey and that's when I I. That's when I made that that venture to go to America and I did that by writing to American high schools by I found a book from the Fulbright Commission which is an organization that facilitates international exchange. And it had this of high schools in it an I simply found the spoke and went through and put a pin every once in a while in a page until I had about three thousand names of schools and I wrote to the coaches of those schools and invited myself onto their teams. I mean the the letter was not nuanced and I'm embarrassed about it now. But essentially he said dear coach whatever. Your name is My Name's John H E. I'm six foot nine black in English And I would like to play for your team If this is of interest to you please get in touch. Six nine is of interest the sixty s the six nine and the black. I thought both would be of interest. I thought this is. These are key pieces in English. You throw in the English. I'm not sure what you were trying to accomplish there. Well I just didn't want them to to to have some idea that perhaps it was an An American already knew the sport and it was a ex-pat family on a on a on a military base or something I wanted them to realize no. No Raw English equals equals. I'm terrible right now. That was really the key and I and I sent off three thousand letters because this was before email and I got three. Replies one from a famous School in New Jersey which I will always remember because it says that they sent me a letter back saying we of the winningest inist team in the history of New Jersey. We don't need foreign talent and I'm always amazed by that the fact that they wrote back. That is now that they wrote back. But not just to put you in your place with a go. bleep yourself is amazingly cruel. It's amazing league rule. What does anybody WANNA? Why I'm pompous? It is that email that let let the sorry that caused it because I remember reading that and thinking well. I don't want to go to this school anyway. I'd winningest is not a word. Why did you why did you take time to write? That and I mean you took the time to write me back. Just write me back in that same. Do what the other two thousand nine hundred odd did an ignore this as some nonsense but instead you want to tell me that you're the winningest school. Not a word anyway so and then I got a letter from to dig up. There is nobody who does not realize this already. But I'm a principal Dick that's important And then I got got a letter from a school in Toledo Ohio and and I was back actually. I was back this year to see my school corps get named after coach at Hainkel in Toledo Ohio and he was the one who who kind of really accelerated my development. He understood very clearly that I had one year to to go from being abjectly terrible to being good enough to get a scholarship and he and his assistant coach Michael but fell Haber. They dedicated themselves and forced me to get dedicate myself To becoming the kind of flat who get a scholarship remarkable this the thing about success. It's it's it's all in them a new show it's in the mundane my success in my willingness to write three thousand letters knowing that a thousand wouldn't do it my my success S. is knowing that I'm never going to be the best at doing everything but I'm tough to be going left. I can't do much else but I was tough to be going going left. I just that that minutia is what gets it done. Did you give me the third letter. Did you tell us what the third letter was that you got there. The first ones memorable the second was memorable. What was the third one the third? Let's it was a school in Virginia And it's only memorable because I did not go. Oh there because my mother wouldn't let me because it was Virginia. My mother had had a white woman married to a black man in Boston in in the sixties And she would not let me go to Virginia. She was afraid. Wow so you had had the scholarship offer if it if the other one doesn't come through that would have been your only opportunity and your mom wouldn't let you she wouldn't have let you go chase your dream Not In Virginia That's interesting I did not know that I did know the story though involving your mother and I've reminisced over the years with you about this because of how it hit me when you told me I found I found the words bit haunting and sad Because you told me that on her deathbed she said to you after that that life that she lived she said I. I have not lived a fun life but I have lived a full life. Yeah Yeah I that it doesn't haunt me. It's aspirational for me. I need my life to be fun and I want to be clear. I don't think she was talking about never having moments of joy. I don't think it's rose tinted glasses to say that. I know that her children as we grow up my two sisters and myself. Oh for what. We're part episodically. If at least of moments of joy from my mother I know her friendships. with with colleagues and and her friends throughout her life were joyful but she has incredibly tough life and I and I think that colored the equation for her. This is the woman who fought in the Biafran war this this woman who jumped out of planes and eight grubs in the jungle in order to five and was on the losing side of a wall where a massive swathe of ethnic cleansing took place so there was nothing surprising when she said to me before she passed passed away that her life hadn't been fun to say but what was reassuring to know that what was important to her is that it was full and when she set that would I knew she meant purpose meaning value that she'd done something that made a difference. An void is she. At what time did you feel the most sense of purpose. Now I continue to it. It rises it. It continues to rise every day. You see something else and if you really apply in your brain and under willing to add a little bit of effort you realize that there are some things you content packed and to focus on them and and and try and be a Hashtag warrior with them has only a minimal impact and then there are some things that you really can make a difference in so I realized there stuff going on in sports that is really damaging and you and I have talked about the Penn state debacle The thing that really wounded clearly my relationship with with not with Penn state as as an entity but with with other Penn staters the dusky debacle. But even before that I was aware that there are non optimal things going on in sport. And now I'm in a position to do something about that because I can join in this in this country. We have a different in a parliamentary system..

"Also, I was like, well, let's see I bet there's video of guerrillas wading through water on the internet. I looked it up. No. I mean, there are lots of videos of guerrillas waiting in the water and most of the time they're doing it on four legs. I mean, they're. Few instances where they'd rear up onto legs. So this doesn't totally disprove the hypothesis. But it really kind of undermines this plank of it. Well, I'm gonna make sense because if you're going into the water, there's a good chance, you you want to use your hands to feel for things and granted primates don't have exactly the same hand foot scenario is humans, but you probably going in there you want to feel the repeal round for the rocks. You wanna feel around for something that you're scavenging for right? Yeah. Exactly. And so definitely guerrillas will walk on four legs in the water. I've seen it. But I guess we have to come back to this question of like, obviously, we can't holy judge. I mean, it's it's possible that something like the aquatic ape hypothesis has some grain of truth to it. But if the biologists and paleoanthropologists are correct that this hypothesis is wrong. It's not not parsimonious. There's no reason to resort to it. Why is it so Taneja like we have had lots of people write to us and say do the aquatic ape theory. You know, we we want to hear about it. And it's not that. I don't think it's interesting to talk about. But it's it's not really taken seriously by experts in the field. So why is it so captivating in the public imagination? Why think part of the answer is our entire first episode? What are we talked about our mythological and fictional obsession with the idea of of humans that live in the water humans that live the waves? There is a there is a deep cultural attraction to that idea, and it kinda bleeds over into aquatic ape theory. Sometimes I mean, even even in cases, when it's you know, it's not somebody saying, hey, I think mermaids real and here's some science to back it up, right? Yeah. It's it's kind of a sticky hypothesis since one of those things that like I said, you know, I want to be fair to it. I I don't think it's like lunatic fringe, I I don't think it is ancient aliens. Right. But I don't think there's a good reason to resort to it. But it's one of those things just so interesting to the mind, it's so fun to. Picture. And so fun to entertain that it sort of like overrides our sense of disinterest in other things that seem not necessary to believe in right? There's actually a paper from nineteen ninety seven in the journal of human evolution by John H Langdon called umbrella hypotheses parsimony in human evolution a critique of the aquatic ape hypothesis in Langdon talks about this idea of these umbrella hypotheses, which he says are quote aesthetically appealing because they appear to be parsimonious. So they're internally consistent and by offering this one umbrella hypothesis that explains a range of things, and they appear to explain a whole lot as we were talking about earlier without making you without requiring you to assume a whole lot, but they actually are requiring you to assume more than they appear to and so in trying to explain why these types of ideas, stay popular with the public. He says quote. One reason for this is that simple answers, however, wrong or easier to communicate and are more readily accepted than the more sound, but more complex solutions..

"It sends us from the parts of it that we see which apparently is very little of it the parts of it that we see tell us. We are wasting our time. Whether it's true or not internally we can't see. But the part we see is you don't care about us. You are dismissive if you respond at all, and we are wasting our time doing this. So that's just a little rant about radar. But the fact is for this story the woman who is reporting this bug shouldn't have even been sent to radar in the first place because this wasn't that kind of bug. It was a product security thing and she emailed product security. Yeah. This makes me so angry that that she was told I'll just go file radar. That is such a it's it's I guess it's it's dismissive, and it shows that they. Weren't really reading things very closely. Exactly the same problem that happens with the radar book. Screeners? It's exactly the same. It's like you. You ask us to file bugs you ask people to report security problems. Like you ask us to do this. And those of us who take our time. And this doesn't take a small amount of time to do this kind of stuff. Those of us who take our time to do it more often than not get dismissed in a way that suggests they didn't even read it, right? This is such a big cue to this poor lady. Yup. Who took the time to actually do this the right way rather than just in. My understanding is you know, there's a series of tweets from a person with the with the Twitter handle beast mode, which I am quite impressed by anyway, John H Meyer, who I got in touch with the with the woman who whose child initially discovered the problem, and you know, she apparently made a video of it. She sent like a whole right up to apple about it. And the response from them was Oko file radar. How off pudding is that? How obnoxious off putting is that it makes? It makes my blood boil it. It's so ridiculous. It's just so obnoxious, and it makes me so angry. So the more charitable interpretation is not that there's any malice or dismissive nece there. But the just the volume of stuff comes in is such that they are overwhelmed with information, and they're sort of I pass filtering algorithm identifies. This as probably just some person who has some kind of bug. They wanna report. And that's that's the person is the the mom who this is a lawyer. And I if you look at the letter, it's not lawyer ease. But like I mean, maybe if you saw something that was from a lawyer or look like he was written by lawyer like maybe that doesn't like when you get a lot of input. And you get a lot of apple sure gets lots of people time in all sorts of things you have to have some sort of way of filtering it. And in the letter, I think the president asked about like bug bounties. Like a lot of companies pay people to find bugs, and I think one of the benefits of bug Bunny's, which apple has by the way, I think they just recently started a bunch of them. I think we're going to talk about an ATP a while back is that if you have a program where you're going to pay people for finding bugs, I think the people at the other end of that fire hose of incoming information probably have slightly different incentives because they're like the whole point of that program is to find the super valuable stuff, whereas the product security one probably gets way more. Like just random people with opinions about apple stuff or like people who think that their phone spying on them at night because it wakes up on a notification come like you who knows what kind of stuff they get..
