New York attorney general files lawsuit to dissolve the National Rifle Association
"Their own pockets. For years, the diverted millions and millions of dollars away from its charitable mission for personal use by senior leadership to award contracts to the financial gain of close associates and family. It appeared to Dole out lucrative. No show contracts to former employees in order to buy their silence and continued loyalty. Thiss lawsuit specifically charges the array as a whole. In addition to four individual defendants, one first individual longtime executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, who has been the face Of the way for decades to former treasurer and chief financial Officer Wilson Woody Phillips, three former chief of staff in the executive director of operations Joshua Powell, and four corporate secretary in general counsel John Fraser. These individuals in the area are charged with failing to manage the NRA's funds and failing to follow numerous state and federal laws, which contributed to the loss of more than $64 million in just three years. Letitia James is the New York state attorney general. Shortly after the New York lawsuit was announced, the attorney general of Washington, D. C. Filing a similar complaint against the foundation, which is the groups A D. C based terrible organization. Also on allegations of misusing charitable funds on Twitter. The NRA is calling today's lawsuit a baseless, premeditated attack on our organization and the Second Amendment freedoms It fights to defend. The president also tweeting about it today and making these comments at the White House Before heading to Ohio. I just heard about that. That is a very terrible thing that just happened. I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life. And I told him that for a long time I think they should move to Texas. Texas would be a great place for to another state off they're using, But I would say that Texas would be a great place in an appropriate place for the NRA has been going on for a long time. They've been absolutely decimated by the cost of that lawsuit on. It's very sad, but I would suggest that that's what they should be doing from those comments from the president and one of the note from the NRA, which says the organization quote will not shrink from this fight. We will confront it and we will prevail in an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network
Expert Says U.S. Current Trend in Coronavirus Cases Isn’t Sustainable
"With us. Dr. John Wade CI, the professor of the Global Health Programme, professor of health system and policy program. And the director of the Center for Global Health College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. And Dr CI Welcome back to the Mark Mason Show. It's my pleasure to be back with you. Well, I'm glad to hear your voice again. I always use you is kind of our update into the really world of Corona virus. What's really going on and a lot has happened since we last talked. On that the virus seems to be more prevalent than ever. But we seem to be learning to live with it. I suppose one of the virus limits we can live with. I mean, we won't like it. But can we get by at this rate? No. We add a to high rate a TTE this great, many, many stay or counties there. Health care for city would not be able to 15 we We have to bring down because most European and Asian country at much lower levels, so they are able to lead you much higher level of activity, which we still cannot. And so if we maintain this high level or pandemic, it will hurt both our economy and people's life and health, and so we had to do something to bring it down to a much lower level. Wow. I don't know how we do that. The governor's talked about maybe travel restrictions. Is that one possible thing we should seriously look at where maybe people from high incident states are are not allowed to come where they if they do. Come there, quarantined. Well, it is. It's It's a good idea, in theory, but in practice will be very difficult to implement. Because he had to send lots of people to monitor to supervise and that costs money. So are you thinking another lock down or slow down? No, no, I think for the last Upfield. Early June, We duty our 2.5 months left town. And we see the serious impact on Mike, honey, and I don't think al economy can sustain more locked down. What we need to do is to learn how to live. Save it. How to operate our business. I work safety and one particular major. Uh, I know the difficulty but that's very critical measure, not just Oregon. But slowly, 90 states we were not able to implement and that is one of the biggest reason we are in this high level off epidemic. So remember in my early and Evi I mentioned that there are three step process. That's important. The first step is contact tracing. The second step is testing and so We're not doing a superb job, but we have the great improvement compare with March or April in term of the first step. But we still fail on the last step that is after the testing. What do we do with the confirmed cases So far, we only isolate people with moderate to see via symptoms. And completely neglected people with mild or no symptoms, and the latest studies, said just people with mild to know Simpson. They accounted for about 80% of total infection. But this 80% of total infection also, if we don't contain them, they also contribute to about 70 to 80% of new infection. Just think about this way. We pay attention to the Penta pus it with more moderate to severe symptoms contained them. But we let the other 80% continue to spread the virus free tea, and it will be a miracle if we don't have. Ah, hi. Hi. Cases continue to be in this house. How did we get more testing? I mean, we can barely my doctor tells me that he has no more tests because they've shipped him off to Florida and Texas and other states that need him. That's a problem I was comparing with Beck in March or April, Wright had done better dimension. We're not doing a super job during the testing as well, Well, I'm with you on the testing, and they and the containment. It's just a question of Why aren't we doing it? There are multiple reason one if people are still resisting the idea ofthe isolation and quality scene and the other financial Many Asian country. I don't know much about European country mediation country like Taiwan, they when they have a mandatory quarantine, isolation, government pay for the costs and company people. The example of Taiwan in their quarantine and isolation. Everyone who and the quarantine everyday received about equipment to certify us started per day for 14 days. So people who need to be quarantined need to be compensated because they lost income and we're not able to do that. I know we're on our financial crunch. So it's both financial reason but also political social reason, because people are not waiting. Yeah, I would have to be afraid, though. Doctors at the AA liberal Mike what would fake Corona virus just so he could sit at home for two weeks and get paid by the government? But there's you know, there's the question of you gotta have the test and it's got to come back positive. So I'm with you. I think a lot of listeners were with you test and contained testing contain, And maybe that's what they should be trying to come up with. In the way of money in Washington, D C right now, the World Health Organization says We should not expect a miracle where a vaccine is concerned. Are we being spoon fed in folded a cure A vaccine, If you will make may not be what we think it's going to be. So that I have some reservations because we still know ability to about the vaccine because there's no effective action available yet. I think I just saw the news. Russia has a plan to have a effective action by October, and we don't know how safe it is, but I think they're waiting between safe and effectiveness. For the U. S. I think the earliest might be the beginning of next year. And I cannot say anything about how effective it is because we haven't seen that yet. We don't know yet, but most likely given the nature of the disease, even an effective vaccine. The immunity may not last very long. If the image can last up to a year. That would be wonderful, but most likely will be somewhere between six months and 12 months. That means we may need to do more than one dose of
Pence knocks chief justice as a "disappointment to conservatives"

Well now Vice President Mike Pence is taking aim at the most senior justice in the country of great respect for the institution of the Supreme Court of the United States.

20 Minutes About Metabolic Fitness
"Everyone it's Martin from twenty minutes fitness. I'm here in San Francisco and I'm connected to levels founder Josh, Clementi Josh. Why don't you to be yourself? Martin's great to be on the show I mean on I'm josh, founder of levels and John Interested in bringing metabolic fitness to the mainstream rates, and so what does everyday mean? What is Metabolic Chiasso metabolism? Easy Way to think about metabolism is the set of cellular mechanisms that create energy from our food and environment that. So this is how we power the processes in our body ourselves bringing fuel and they turn it into energy and so metabolic fitness or metabolic health is when those systems are. Operating properly and you have often energy weight balanced performance without excess byproducts and so the way that that we're doing this is using continuous glucose monitoring hardware software analytics to close the loop between actions you take every single day in your daily life and the reactions, your body experiences in particular, the blood sugar response, your body experiences, and so this is this is the level, is that closing loops between action reactions the way that behavior change becomes eating, easy and obvious I, and so we're the first metabolic fitness company greenest market, and how do you define an excess byproduct like at what point you have too much nutrition what is it exactly? So, the some of the easy ways to think about this art glucose itself. So this is a it's sugar essentially, this is a molecule that is the primary energy molecule in the human body so that metabolism functionality that we talked about is driven primarily off of glucose sugar and fat, and so when you're consuming sugar, it releases into the bloodstream and You know this is actually just tipping carbohydrates while they sugars that interest the bloodstream, and so this triggers a cascade of processes, hormonal processes, and those tell your body, how to op sort of appropriate that Lucas, into the cells for for their useless contrived things like weight gain can. Be for muscle expenditure for energy using mechanical loads on a commute for cognitive function in the brain. But those laws get too high. You actually have an inflammatory situation because Lucas is a very reactive molecule it produces what are called free radicals, inflammatory cytokines. I'll sixteen alpha you know these different molecule byproducts of glucose reactions that actually are very inflammatory and can cause breakdown of tissues and skin glaciation, which is right leads to Browning of the skin and wrinkles. All these byproducts that ultimately are are not good for us. So there's a fine balance and glucose is meant to be kept in tight control and that's what we mean by byproducts. Normally unless you have diabetes, you should not have resistance to insulin release right so how does that really matter van for you know everyday use that a non diabetic being that we have been since glucose is the primary energy source for for the modern person we've studied the Post Disease State of Glucose for for many decades. So this is called diabetes typically type two diabetes which a lifestyle driven illness that sets in your body can no longer respond to insulin you can't use glucose in. Your bloodstream effectively, it gets really high toxic levels. So we studied that quite a bit but the thing is that all of us across the metabolic spectrum from healthy to to less healthy are all using net glucose and so there is an optimization function here where because these mechanisms are linear you know it's not it's not like a a threshold where you cross over it, and then suddenly you're unhealthy that's kind of how start thought about a me to think about this metabolic fitness meaning the choices. We make require focus effort and repetition to achieve optimization. So it doesn't matter where you fall on the spectrum metabolic health de Choices you're making today are affecting your hormonal cascade causing qualitative experiences in causing quantifiable to potentially detrimental effects like weight gain, where's performance exercise cognitive decline sort of all of the things that we struggle with our day-to-day are affected by the choices we're making that we don't really connect because we don't have that close loop system. So now by by showing that the person who. Doesn't have diagnose metabolic dysfunction. You can optimize your choices daily see the data in real time, make better ones, and then achieved this sort of metabolic control where instead of having these this roller coaster of spikes and crashes in energy issues, and again wait gained the rollercoaster. We all ride day today that we kind of use our emotions feel way through. You cannot have data and you can use that to achieve this the state of balanced control and you know lower flatter smoother continual on metabolic control.

Dodgers Out-Slug Padres to Win High-Scoring Affair
"A stunning finish on the double play off the bat of the former dodger manny. Machado as the dodgers hold on at pet, go to win seven six, they win the series as well over the Padres, two games to one John Shea Jim Russell back with you here on the wrap up show, we said the padres lead baseball by the way and runs per game last. Last segment. They entered the day third in runs per game at five, and a half runs per game on the season and against scored six runs here today. So they've been very, very good offensively. But again, with the loss, they fall to seven and six on the season. Let's hear from the manager who was jacked for the first time in his career. Here's Jay Taylor game. Yeah, it's always good to see. You know the guys continue to battle and. You. Know we've we. Kind of felt that you know inside the. In the DUGOUT when we've been down never really feel like we're out of it and you know get get the heart of the order up and chance to you know always be in the game and. You know look at the end Mandy you know squared a ball up to to left field and and They made a hell of a play I. Mean it was A. Had to be you know a perfect throw and it was a perfect one hop throw and a intact. So but dancer question Yeah. It's. It's good to see him battling back and chip away and. You know we. You know we we came up short. Your first managerial ejection tonight. That's something that had been building up over the course of the game with Margaret Mature, as more of a spur of the moment reaction to that dish. Now. It's a, it's not built up minutes. Look. I think manny thought the ball was down I. thought it was down and. You know it either I go with me and he goes I'm guessing. So it's simple as up. Your thoughts on how? To. Handle. I thought you know Came in You know we were looking for a little softer landing but. The NFL west, there's there's no soft landing especially with the dodgers and. looking for a spark and. He gave up to ground balls got through and and then obviously Peterson clicking man you know. Peterson Click a couple balls tonight. You know and. But but I was impressed with how he went back out in the second inning and. I thought that was good and it's always nice to kind of You know finish on a on a higher note, and hopefully he gets some confidence and you know continues to go forth. Interesting admission there from JAS Tingler. We were hoping for a softer landing for Luiz Patino. Remember we heard yesterday literally yesterday when he was called up, he would not initially be pitching and high leverage spots. He makes his Major League debut, not not with the lead, but trailing four too. So you could argue the leverage component of it, but Jim again, he went left left right left with the VP that a left-wing cory seager who's read hide Jock Peterson three homers in the series including the homerun again. Again Against Patino and again, you're going to have to get him at one point or another. If you call them up, there's a reason you call it Emma but Jeez in the history of big league debuts, can it be much more difficult for Patina than the inning he had to deal with there could not have been more difficult. You're facing an MVP facing the guys at thirty six bombs last year who was notorious for being i. mean you saw in the home run Derby last year he. Is. Ball's. Chris Taylor their professional hitter. It's not an, there's no easy ways to face the dodgers especially in a four two game. You put him in there hopefully to have Jason, Taylor said this thing and there by the way it's four nothing before with two outs, TAT tease homers. So all of a sudden the dynamic of the game has changed it's chain, but but seniors already ready like you've already said he's GonNa Pitch the sixth, right? Like you wonder again at four nothing there you go. Down seven nothing whatever. But at fourteen like well, I'm back in the game and you don't want him to get up and then sit down again and I'm sure that's the reason why they put them in the game like look he's already ready. Maybe. It might be not the best time to put him in. But look, we just hit a two run bomb to to get us going hopefully and putting a guy in there where he is one of if not the top prospect on this in this organization, hopefully, we can get another spark on this guy route that is
How I Built Resilience: Alberto Perlman of Zumba
"Alberto we had John Foley, Peleton on a couple of weeks ago and saving Lincoln a bar three. Obviously, the industry as a whole has just been absolutely decimated, right? I mean twenty four hour fitness file for bankruptcy gyms across the country are struggling. Many of them may not survive at the same time working from home is really you know Anybody who's tried to get dumbbells online knows it's impossible to find them right now. Right I heard. There's a black market for dumbbells. Yeah. How has the Economic Crisis Affected Zimba? So so we set out and said, let's base our response to the pandemic and we started seeing this in January and February because we have instructors in Titan and our instructors in China were telling us hey, this is really bad. You guys have to prepare for this because if this. Gets out. This is not good. So we said we have to do three things. One most important thing how do we continue to help structure state generate income to how do we deliver a education virtually for people New People want to become instructors or existing instructors who need further education especially, if they're transitioning virtual and three, how do we keep our promise to make the world happy and healthy? The first thing we did was we allowed instructors to start teaching online. They started teaching zoom but Paulo to to that, we started developing our own platform and it's called Zen Studios Instense for Zoom Instructor, network. So in Studio and in studio allows instructors to lyceum their classes in allows them to upload prerecorded glasses with a licensed. It allows them to charge for their classes. It allows him to list their classes on for months, Zoom Dot Com. We really focused on his since studio concept to help our instructors generate income during the the lock them, and at the same time we said we are structures are not necessarily trained in using all this technology. So we better provide all the education that they need. So we created all these courses that were done through zoom and some are learning courses that instructors could take. To become what we call virtual fitness pros and tour surprise within a month and a half, we had about a million people a week taking Zuma classes virtually, which is amazing for a new virtual product. It was really on structure selling their students. Hey, non teaching online income, take my class virtually every week we launched improvements to the platform. So we added chat to the platform. So students can chat while you're taking the class we added emojis we added that thinks to the paywall so that Instructors could take payment, which every were launching new tech at a pace that our technology team had never done before, and I'm so proud of them because they really took it to the next level. Yeah. I mean you basically stood up a virtual platform within weeks. I mean I'm imagining that if you had a plan like, let's say a year ago you said, Hey, we want to do a virtual platform it would have taken you like a year to put together right and you do this In like six weeks. Yeah. Unbelievable. Working nights weekends. It felt like we were starting Zuma again it felt like you know how jeff vessels says they won. It really felt like they won we felt unstoppable. We're going at it. We were talking to instructors to get feedback on how to make the platform perfect for them, and at the same time we said we to also help our instructors and the world at large during the pandemic in other ways. So we created a community fund where we Gave a funds out to instructors directly affected by covert themselves who were hospitalized, who had family members that pass away or instructors that were because our instructors sometimes are. Their site job. So we had a lot of instructors who are nurses a lot huge population of nurses who are also instructors. So we help them their frontline workers, we help them with their services. So we created this community fund and we also did something that we call the one class, one meal program for every person who took a virtual class which. We make revenue on all the revenue goes to the instructors for every person takes a virtual class with donated meal a during the month of June, and we donated one point, one million meals to food banks around the world while. So Alberta's when when somebody signs up for a virtual class on the Zimba- platform, all that revenue pays for it goes to. The instructor yeah everything instructing well. So so I mean, how are you guys? I mean you're still a business you still have employees how're you kind of managing the business and I mean have you had to have lay-offs or furloughs for example? Yeah. So we didn't do any layoffs wouldn't do any for those. Surprisingly are clothing business is doing very well people. Buying fitness clothing to work out at home and we were able to manage. It obviously is not going to be of very profitable year because we made a lot of investments to make all these things happen but that's not our objective. This year objected this is about the people it's about the instructors is about their students is about our employees it's always been. And this year, it's even more about a just helping out others and a
Trump lauds Arizona as success of virus 'embers' strategy
"There are thousands of new coronavirus cases being reported each day in the hard hit Sun Belt states but Arizona's governor received special praise for his handling of the pandemic the latest tally in Arizona shows eighty seven new deaths reported Wednesday and nearly seventeen hundred new infections but the state seems to be turning a corner with the seven day averages going lower president trump hosted Arizona governor Doug Ducey a Republican quick to reopen his state calling to see a model for the rest of the country he was hit very hard and he's and he hit back even harder Florida surpassed half a million infections Wednesday with two hundred twenty five new deaths California's had more than five hundred twenty seven thousand infections and a nationwide tally of four point eight million with more than a hundred fifty seven thousand deaths according to Johns Hopkins University hi Jackie Quinn
"Years after I took the monastic vows trading all my worldly possessions for a pair of monk's robes I moved into a monastery that was off the grid remote and blissfully quiet one day. My friend Kim sent me a letter saying timber I. Understand why you love living there I mean who wouldn't but how can you honor your vows to be of service to others if you cut yourself off from the rest of the world and keep yourself tucked away in the mountain somewhere Kim didn't point out my hypocrisy because she's cruel or judgmental. She did it to shed light on what I couldn't see from where I was sitting that. My actions were not congruent with my words. There was no reason for me to get defensive because Kim wasn't on the offensive and fact Kim's comment had nothing to do with her personal needs or opinions it was about me saying one thing and doing another don't get me wrong I don't regret moving to the monastery in the first place. But after Kim's intervention, a couldn't justify staying envy see non violent communication considers unsolicited advice a form of bullying and judgment but Kim's comment wasn't unsolicited I have an understanding with all my friends that being supportive of one. Another does not mean blindly cheering each other on, for instance, if any of. US are about to repeat a harmful cycle that we swore. We wanted to break the drinking to excess getting into another dysfunctional relationship or deviating from a path. We have previously claimed we wished to follow we welcome intervention I. Mean I wouldn't tell my buddy John to stop smoking because never claimed he wanted to stop but I would definitely urge my friend Ashley to spend less money if she had previously told me that getting out of debt was her top priority. You see it's not about pushing my opinions on anyone. It's about supporting their decisions regardless of what I think and Buddhism we take refuge and what are called the three. Jewels, the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha the teacher, the teachings and other students on the path. My friends are my Sanga or my congregation if you prefer, and since you are my friend in your on this path with me, this month's intervention is similar to what Kim offered me many years ago. It's an invitation to reflect on areas in our lives where we are being hypocrites areas where we are not behaving in ways that are congruent with who we wish to be, and sometimes we even publicly claimed to be. We aren't always honest with ourselves because we often have too much shame or guilt around the decisions we make other. Times we are oblivious that we are out of alignment today. I urge you not to look back on your past behavior and wonder why you've done what you've done before but to decide how you can live from this moment forward. So that what you think what you say and what you do are all in harmony I warn you though something's going to have to shift to because you will either have to change what you think what you say or what you do before. You can live a congruent life and other words do your decisions reflect your values peck? Do you even know what your values are many of us never take? The time to write them down. For example, do we actually value being considerate or do we just like to think of ourselves as considerate neighbors even though we regularly run the dishwasher at one am in our third floor apartment with no consideration to our downstairs neighbors these little things make a big difference because the way we do one thing is the way we do all things. So let's do it all mindfully congruence consistency and transparency require us to be vulnerable and honest with ourselves about our strengths and our shortcomings. So go ahead and write down the kind of person you wish to be as well as the kind of person you. Currently are, and you will see for yourself where you have some work to do consider this your own intervention, which is defined as the action of becoming intentionally involved in a difficult situation in order to improve it or to prevent it from getting worse interventions like black lives matter and the metoo movement have forced all of us to examine where we have unknowingly unintentionally or unconsciously racist or failed to demand equality even while we claimed to believe in it and just like simply wearing amongst rove's does not make a monk or wearing a cross necklace does not make you a Christian in the words of Tyler durden sticking feathers up your. But does not make you a chicken. What we're talking about is having a strong conviction to live in line with our values so that we stay in our integrity and avoid all unnecessary suffering or battling with internal struggles. Suzuki row she said there are no enlightened beings. There's only enlightened activity. The people we consider enlightened are just like you and me they simply make enlightened activity part of their daily lives that is to say they walk the talk I think it's why my own teachers asked me one day. Why do you need the robes? Why can't you just be the guy in town with the bright is indeed why can't we all?

So I think overall reprise across about six thousand different products and buying and selling lenses, bodies, etc way. Primarily within the kind of autofocus era within the digital era with bodies. But obviously that's a huge catalog of kit. And now now the biggest and the best place to be doing that really. So that's in a nutshell, our PB DOT COM. That's fantastic. Congratulations on that. So so just just to put a finer point on it. So the largest the largest player in the buy sell trade. World for photographers and videography or creative professional's doing that sort of stuff. What does that look like in terms like today right? So as we record this, it's July sixteenth twenty twenty and and obviously if you know your history people this was in the middle of the pandemic, we're currently in the middle of a global pandemic. In, what how does that affect the world of of buy sell trade? Is it a positive effect is negative or is it benign? Question I think. It's been obviously an awful time for all of us and really really challenging for business in general and. It's usually by this many businesses literally having to shot of their Dole's. I think from our points of view and it was fairly similar in the UK to the US. So in the US based in New York because you said earlier in the UK, based art in both the UK and New York went into lockdown around a similar time in March. And that stage. John Sentence for us we we weren't sure if we could remain operating tool at that time and around the balls that were being put in place and things like that, and we run a massive warehouse here in Brighton Beach Warehouse in Brooklyn and so i. I kind of concentration from us, I, guess when this thing came on was the safety of our staff primarily, it was very much a stop first customers this second approach. But I think once we got past those early weeks and got measures in place in warehouses to ensure that everyone was safe and we continue to operate. We've seen is like a really really positive thing in many ways, which is the it's been clear to me watching what's been happening on the platforms that people have been really engaging with photography actually, and we've had loads of new in new engagements and new customers coming onto the platform for the first time. Has Been recent huge growth and not. Someone said to me I guess is that during what's been everyday difficult time during a time where people have had to spend a little time indoors and? Changing the normal habits working from home excetera. I think people have found a lot of comfort and joy in their hobby and turns about passion point and to to to find. Some pleasure really at quite difficult time. So and we're certainly not a net beneficiary of this thing at all. The companies out there like Amazon's. Wouldn't ever say that that was the case walnut to be the case. But we have seen. Huge. In great engagement in a way, is clearly evident. The people have been been quite active with their hobbies. So that's been really really positive and I am going to see and like I say we're very lucky that we've been able to continue to operate to row being an online only business as we all. Say Some Fortune. I suppose dipped in that, which is you know not been the easiest thing to find a late. So yeah, it's it's. You know as as a business as well. I think because we all we've been around since two thousand eleven. So this is all on ninety. We're significant size business. Now, we're lots of people as well and again thank thankful for that because that gives us resilience and helps me I think if it had been if he had hits us when we were a much smaller company ABC's it's a lot more challenging to deal with, but we have. About one hundred people that work here. Now, not helped us in terms of resilience as well and being able. To change the way, we operate to to accommodate things at this time so. Yeah it. Definitely. Definitely a challenging. But definitely. Some positive things in there that we we can be talking about as well? Which is quite

Solving the Murders of Katherine and Sheila Lyon
"Not like we're just talking about it for any kind of thrill. We're talking about it because we need to know what's going on in our society that's making this happen really drew. Okay, so we'll start John. Lyon, met his future wife. Xavier. University in Cincinnati. They were both students there. His wife Mary was from Erlanger Kentucky John was the Chicago. Boy. They married in Air Langer and had their first child a boy they named. Jay. Then after graduation John got a job at a radio station in Ohio, that's where Sheila was born. then. He worked at a radio station Illinois and Catherine more and they're. Following that John worked in both TV and radio in Peoria. He was on a daytime children's program where he played the guitar and Banjo. And in that same time period, nary was in a folk band. And then she gave birth to their youngest child Joe. Some pretty cool people I. Think they sound very interesting. He does. And she s in a folk band I. think that's really cool and it was the seventies. So they were kind of hit by guests. Yeah, probably. John's hard work eventually paid off. You got hired at W. M. A., l.. which at the time, the seventies was the most popular radio station in Washington, D.. C.. And John, was a pretty talented radio personality. So working at this station's worked as a fill in disc jockey, he read the news and he performed in a band, the multitask. Yeah John and Mary were both Pretty Witty People very well-spoken. So March Twenty, ninth nineteen, seventy, five was unseasonably warm in the suburbs of Washington. DC. Catherine. And Sheila Lyon. Ages ten and twelve were on spring break from school. John had worked the night shift the night before and drove home at six. Am that morning and went to bed. She learned Catherine. went to the Wheaton Mall. They had two dollars between them and they plan to get two slices of pizza. And Mary was happy to see them go together. She led the older one, didn't always want to spend time with their little sister, but recently, the two would become close played together like friends. But John Woke up that afternoon to an empty house. Mary had gone bowling and the boys were off playing with friends in the neighborhood. Mary came home with their younger boy. Joe Soon, after John Woke up, then he went back to bed for nap before dinner and Mary went and Rick. Some leaves in their backyard. When the sun began to go down, Mary really began to worry about her daughters. They were usually really good about being home for dinner and Sheila would call if they were at a neighbor's house playing. But Sheila had called and there had been no sign of the girls. But this is nineteen, seventy five. Your mind is not going to go to objection at this point. Nobody really thought like that. No, not then now. So they went ahead and had dinner with the two boys waiting for the girls to show up assuming they would. and. When there was still no word after they finish dinner Mary began calling around to all of their friends. No one had seen them though. So the family drove around looking for the girls and as time passed and they looked for their daughters in the Dr, the alarms really began to go off in their heads that something was wrong. So that's when they decided to call the police. But most runaways. The lions sisters, and they were nearly always found within twenty four hours. So when these girls were still missing overnight, the police began to realize that this was a case that was different. And the idea of follow play was becoming a real possibility at that point. The John and Mary told the police that this was just totally out of character for their girls both were honor roll students, and they both followed rules Catherine who went by Kate. Was the outgoing.

Designing human-like voice bots for IVR with Einav Itamar
"For those who? have. Never. Come across Volk. It is is A. Platform describe as a platform technology enables you to. Automate in coming calls into the in the Houston. conversationally, I. You describe. It. Wa. You're automating. Both incoming and outbound calls using the I. We also providing solutions for Omni Channel. On top of feats, you know many auto companies. The are Chad with companies are trying to into the space of voice. But then the extent that you get these, you know naturally suitable because voice is much more complex than I'm your shed, but we went the other way around I created. A solution that is good for contact center. Now, we're also studying to provide the solution channels and to provide also on me across channels solutions. Across. Messaging Chats websites in-app in many other channels, swell. Rhonda's this because eventually customers today expect to get the best service across the channels to get it also to be consistent and fluent. so you're talking. On about trade-offs, contacts and trade offs, and how you kind of you develop the plow foam to try and counteract some of the. Can you elaborate a little bit on what kind of trade offs? You UTAH. Yeah, sure. So S I mentioned. I. Think Sense. There is such thing as customer service. There is always a trade off between. You know. The company's you know our clients at one to provide. Good. Customer experience, but Dan their cost. For providing customer experience and especially. When there is a your scaly. So as no telecommunication companies and banks as A. Growth in a number of customers, a number of agents, it becomes more and more challenging to keep the level of customer experiences still keep the cost same. Venture. Customers what we experienced when we are calling. Is. Experienced long waiting times. We experienced sometimes inexperienced agents or you know all short agents, we know maybe limited access to internal systems or. Out Maybe. So So. Then on the other hand when companies try to solve skill ability issues and use technologies like. Then again, they get. They throw their customers into amaze rights with the that is not great. Awesome experience, and then sometimes they try to. Come these using. Trying to divert customers the other channels that they're more scalable like email and chat, and so on. That eventually, still customers are still calling and again receipts during co-lead more and more again because if you want something and you now. You still need to call. So it's not one or the other, he needed to provide great customer experience across channels and I think that if chat was where like a trim two or three years ago. Now, it's clear that the voice is as important as jet and you need to provide again a solution across channels and. Make sure that you don't need voice s like. Sumptuous is. Completed to. Jets. It's interesting that you mentioned or what you mentioned earlier makes me think about how a lot of times customer service can actually be a differentiator. Sorts can be a competitive advantage for starting companies. In. The US you've got a handful of companies that are just like really known for good customer service like jet blue, a trader Joe's. Maybe, there is something that you as well. Cain any companies that Spring to mind. You're like, okay. I. Don't mind calling them. I think John Lewis Typically tend to have a pretty good customer service, but another one from the US is Tom's shoes. Of you've had this dog is where some very agents have spent like twenty thirty minutes on the call was among and something. I think any complaints they ended up just giving you a new pair of shoes in insulin, and then there's another one about flower. Flower. Company where? They, they missed delivery to someone's There was an important delivery wasn't birthday with something else and the Mr Delivery, the person foreign open ended up giving them free flowers not announced just free flowers everyone. Constantly after that. For Making one mistake. So it just shows how important is to have customer service because people like me who have nothing to do with it tells stories about. That's going to be really expensive if you're going to be willing to stay on the phone for hours with the human. So I guess Vocal Da da driven customer service help companies close that gap a little bit when it comes to that customer service advantage. I don't think they relate to that. you. You mentioned several companies that could. A similar experience. No. Before costs and for civil ones. Not just automated, but I will make sure that. The customer experience comes first. So this is our ideal customer. So for instance, American Express is also where known. In. you know in in their? Ability and willingness to invest quite a lot. In order to provide great experience. So when we met with them initially, they were very excited about us both from the ventures you need. innovation and business the different business units. So that got us into a place where they invested in as they are one of our. Trusted the Bucknell's and we are Again one example for. For Great Company that believes in US and knows the importance. So great customer experience and not just
Wendy Osefo on the Black Lives Matter protests, and the 2020 election
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode. A have a conversation with Wendy Osafo when he is a political commentator and a professor of education at Johns. Hopkins. University, she also served on the Obama Administration's anti-poverty initiative when he joins me to talk about everything from the current political climate to the recent black lives matter protests. We also discussed recent polling of the twenty twenty presidential election, and of course, many many failings of the trump administration. So without further ADO, here's my conversation with Wendy Assefa. Welcome to the broadcast. Thank you for having me. I really wanted to talk to you about this moment in history because I saw a tweet, the other day that really got my attention I think it was from Congresswoman Anna Presley and she said that the civil rights movement didn't in it didn't end and that we're living right now it's ongoing and I think that that's pretty you know accurate what's happening in the streets with black lives matter protests you know what do you think this moment actually means I think this moment right now is a defining moment in our country. And our nation I think that what we have to realize is that without cameras, this has been the backdrop of the lives of black people for years is just so happens that the death of George Floyd was videotaped but this has happened so many times in enough is enough I was told people you know I'm so happy that black lives matter has become a battle cry that people more aware about now in twenty twenty but I remember marching when black lives matters started before was even Hashtag with the death of Trayvon Martin it was the death and killing trayvon Martin that. Ignited the hash black lives matter and so I say all that to say, you know the civil rights movement was a time that we look to as a historic time society and we came through that as a nation but it hasn't ended because just evolved in different ways, and that's what people have to understand and I'm just so excited to see different faces, different races, different backgrounds really fighting now because it's going to take our nation to come together as one in order for us to end systemic racism. Now you're absolutely right it has evolved right? That's the perfect word. For it and when I think about you know what you just said marching when Trayvon Martin was murdered a movement was kind of in its infancy. But what I think is really interesting now is the reaction from conservatives now that people are marching around the world for black lives matter they their reactions were really extreme Ryan, I mean it's like splashed holy water on them like what do you think that they think black lives matter actually means what does it mean to them? You hear people saying like not in my town you're not gonNA bring black lives matter into Maya. Town. Yeah I think is really interesting in the way I. Answer. This question may actually be controversial I think that they are very clear what black lives matter means I think they are very clear but black lives matter stands for, but they don't want to accept what black lives matters means because if they do that means that they are accepting that this country's inherently racist and that's the truth and as uncomfortable truth we are saying black lives matter because black lives are the ones that are under attack were saying black lives matter because the statistics show that black and Brown children in schools are treated differently. That's why we're seeing black. Lives matter but you see it's not just black lives. Matter is black lives matter because black lives have been treated as less than for so many years in this country. So I think that conservatives are fully aware of what this means I think that is willful ignorance for them to say, no black lives with not only to accept that is not the Hashtag that the issue is the premise of the Hashtag doesn't issue and I think that when we're having these conversations with people, these are people who are elected Congress people they're pretty smart. You know they're pretty erudite nature, and so you know these are the same. Individuals who say because they're conservatives that a baby's life matters at the beginning of Jess station. You don't have to come out of the womb for your life to matter but soon as your created your life matters and therefore they're against abortion. So if they're able to understand that a baby's life matters at the beginning of creation than I'm pretty sure that they're competent enough to understand that black lives matter because black lives are the ones under
"john i" Discussed on The ONE Thing
"It? Here's an interesting thing, and this is where I feel some of growth happen was. How do you be grateful when you don't want to be? And I'll give you a story as an example so I had this experience of a a really terrible day out in the field so. Out, meet with clients and you know just didn't work out. Well. Write. Client canceled the meeting. decided to drive wiping in bumper to bumper traffic, and I'm getting home early, so I can work on my thank you cards, and like have dinner with my family. No usually I would text my wife and say hey. I'm coming home early of now. This time we had a two month old, and then a two year old at our house. So I come home. I put the key in the door. and. Immediately, our dog barks right and then when I opened the door, one of our sons, a two year, old starts screaming because he was in a nap, and then my wife is nursing the other child who's about asleep, and then he wakes up and he's screaming so now I've got a barking dog, two screaming children, and then my wife staring at me with laser beams, coming out of her is like. Why are you home right now? and. I GotTa go write, thank you cards now right like on top of having a terrible day, and then feeling like a ruined my wife's life, right? So I just I went up to my office and I sat down grab some stationary out and I thought of who I wanted to write my cards to which was in business associates from way back when and I couldn't do it I. I literally could not get myself into a grateful state. I just couldn't write words that were authentic with the with the value and I was just so emotional, so cut up that literally the only thing I could think of was just an emotional management strategy which was I. Turn The lights off in my office I. Laid on the ground and I process the day. And I let all the emotions come up, and all the thoughts in all the ears and everything. I just I just sat. There are lay there and just let everything kind of drill down to the bottom like they do with the snow right when people are emotional states like shaking up a snow globe. They're all over the place, but it's in that silence in in that pausing. That things start to settle down and we can see clearly. And then I stood up I grabbed my journal. And I wrote some notes about what I was thinking. What I was feeling. What I was afraid of that ruined. My is am I not going to be successful business because they had this bad day. No, I'm going to be fine. That ruined my wife's life. Are we going to get a divorce now of course not. UPSET, she'll be fine. Okay great! What's important now and I just got really focused and I thought about the people. I cared about and I wrote the most amazing letters in about half the time normally took. And I say this. Because what was there was the commitment preceded the emotions meeting like I was willing to go through the emotional pain and the processing to get to the state. I needed to be, and that was one of the challenges in the thoughts in the background was. Can I live every day with a grateful heart? And what I learned is it's hard to live all day like that, but I can get myself into that state, and that is a powerful tool. How to move yourself through an emotional process to get to the other side because that's what you're committed to, and that's the where the value lays, and it's like in that in the in the commitment. That's like the crucible of learning. That's where the learning comes from when you have to go through the pain of I. Don't WanNa do this, but I'm committed well. I'M GONNA. Do This I. Don't know how to do this well. Well, you can't get out of this now. Figured out, okay. What do I know? I'm not in a good state I wanna be grateful, okay? How do I know I'm just really upset? Would I know meditation practice? Right lay on the ground process. Take some time, and so it just kind of forced me to be responsible for my commitments. Yeah I love that in the parallel that I will will draw as how many of you. Have ever been moving through your days where things just get crazy. Things are popping up. There are fires everywhere. There's chaos. Your your email box just keeps building. People are constantly distracting every time. You feel like you're about to get into the zone. Somebody's pulling out of it and you just feel like the day is a loss. When I'm hearing, you say John Is. It's in those moments. That, it's not just okay. Let's just close email us. Just do there one thing. I heard, you say. You found a space religious boss. You could just brief. You could process. You could let your snow globe. Settled down. In in that. You could ask the question. What's the one thing I can do? Such that by doing it. Everything else would be easier or necessary. Identifying that lead domino getting up and whacking away at Intel, a false before we dive into some of the stories that you have John I. WanNa ask you who's listening to this based on everything. You've heard so far. What is that keystone? Habit it. You're currently missing. That if you formed it. Not only would it just make everything else easier necessary, but it would start to have this halo effect where shines down in other areas of your life. And if you're not in the middle of sixty six challenge, one would be a good time free to.

Yes, so I'm excited to dive into the work that you guys do at the at the company Bridge Patient Portal and Universe, but before we do that, I wanna learn what inspires your work in healthcare. I think healthcare is just by nature, a very challenging industry to work in. There's no shortage of of problems to solve and the diversity from one organization to another is often times quite extreme, so it's a very challenging puzzle that keeps me very interested, and we've just found that in this market. There's a lot of sort of you know. High flying companies come and go and acquisitions, and oftentimes they're just chasing the dollar and you know there's an opportunity for vendors to come in and take them more patient approach, and we're closer with their clients, and that's what I really enjoy about it. That's great. You care about the end result is I mean the emanate is insane. In this in this space, and the stability has really a high value, and so seems like you've been able to provide that for many of your customers. Tell us a little bit about the company John, and what you guys are doing to add value to the. System sure I mean our focus generally is on patient engagement, which is obviously a fairly broad category. When we think about all the different parts of software or solution that can you know, touch the patient before during and after their appointment or their encounters? So you know we when we look at our solution where we're trying to look at it very holistically, which is different than a lot of the other vendors that are out there that are kind of taking little bits and pieces of different. Different patient engagement needs and sort of one off solutions you know we are really focused on.

"Up to the top of the hour sure some emails hi John I believe the source stems from acquiring better vetting of police officers not in removing officers in schools your available a highly emotionally charged time right now and I don't believe removing the officers is the correct answer in this case we're turning our police reforming rather our police requirements is paramount and I appreciate the kind words of Barbara in San Jose four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten a let's go to let's go to what moves in order here gene calling from Sacramento gene welcome to KGO hi John thank you for bringing this up because I think there's a middle ground that I would just like to put out there and it's from my own experience even though I went to school back in the dark ages before the turn of the century we had a volunteer actually it was one of the students dad he was retired from the airforce and he walked our halls and he kept us under control but we you know we still have the police there but this guy I was kind of a kinder gentler person managing us it fast forwards when my son was in school ten years ago there was a police officer that was more partners so my son got into trouble he helps me guide him the other way so I see that the beauty of both of them and so there's probably a middle ground where there's parents or grandparents or community members to come and get involved with the school and it doesn't it won't work for all school districts obviously but you don't bring the community and making it a community issue to help raise the children I remember Mr Reynolds finally but I also remember you didn't skip class if you copy and he walks you to the I remember those days but see that's the key it's the familiarity and having that relationship and let me emphasize not being afraid and that to me is so quick right all right you're right thank you thank you I'm I'm flooded here Leslie who has been a school teacher for many years says I don't see any reason for a school district have police force or to contract with police departments to patrol schools police have more important things to do than watch kids in an environment where they should already be safe it's it's unseemly to have armed police officers walking around on public school it is a responsibility of people who work in the public schools residents of the neighborhood around the schools and the parents of students in the school to provide safe environment more people need to get involved with what is happening in their neighborhood schools I agree with everything you said Leslie except the advantage was not to have police there twenty four hours a day if you will or during the school day but to let kids establish a relationship with police officers I think that's a good thing because it it lessens the concerns of the tensions this comes from Jerry I have a degree in law enforcement administration of justice I also took police classes when I was in college John what we need in terms of the police in schools we need them as teachers not enforcers I've met some great teachers that were saucers look that may be true too but see I just want the kids to be used to sing a police officer and not be afraid I know that's what I'm looking for am I wrong let's go to if that calling from Concord event welcome to KGO hi Josh I would rather be honest you have no idea how much we are on the same page so our work with our allies are working here hearing insurance and I work with women that was formally charged that's something that I realized in working with underserved populations why would we expect for them to do anything that we actually do some follow any process which we have not taken the challenge to build trust and value in a relationship I see nothing wrong with police officers they are ships are seen walking while the police officers knocking on the school grounds that they are to have the price edge let's see some mixed with the police department yup let's see some softball games but the police department specially from customer service let's see them outside of their normal school last let's engage with them outside of a policing for next is that if I if I were a superintendent of schools I would hire you that is exactly what yeah it's it it's not that we take police officers off the streets is it we let kids know the police officer who is there is there to help them not scare them to death right no yes it's very easy most common strains you know it's not raining surgery for cancer do not charge the officers they're trusting you with their friends children's and what they'd seen on TV hello let's show them something so they can figure out something different so they can respond you're you're exactly right I even remember although I was not a great sports person the police athletic league where the police formalized schools with athletic programs I'm a police will not in uniform where the coaches and they were the ones who supervised the games and it it reduce tension because all of a sudden exactly what you're saying it was human being human being well I'd like to know what are they going to replace the police force at this point because we're gonna have to change something yup what officer friendly needs to change his destination in a safe harbor collective approachable a cultural attitudes rather after school or image to lease contest and had an asset that's what all this boils down to what is the psychology of economics a particular officer becoming an artist yeah I heard he main what is it one question of Jackson well one of the arguments being made is exactly the argument you're making the object of a good police officer is to know where he or she is to know the people in their area and to have a reputation as somebody who is trustworthy and I think that's good public relations when I was when I was in high school we have something called the police community relations task force I was on the police community relations force when I was in high school as a whole and that was after the the riots they were really riots but the disturbances are white and JVM the whole point was to bring us all together and you know what solve the problem but it sure establish trust and that was what we were absolutely yeah listen I I want you to know that I have a high regard for your point of view not because you agree with me but because you put what you are saying at a practice and more power to you absolutely all right here thank you thank you Steve emails so do we now want to demonise police departments across all fifty states clearly use of force really does need to change reform is in order we all agree on that but if school districts decide says Steve to sever their relationship with law enforcement and having on site police presence what will we do when a disgruntled sixteen year old student decides to shoot up a classroom and teachers with no police in sight that sounds frightening you know you're right and that's the whole point I don't want to condition a kid to think they're gonna be attacked at school but every school now has some plan and that the teachers and the students on the police should work together said the kids just something happens god forbid although I can't mention Gautam school okay heaven forbid I don't know if I can mention having but whatever it is that we have a method that we have a way of relating and we have people we trust who can help the.

"Together is a tag as we do the count down basically two of the warring twenty early twenties a roaring twenties from how original John I try to come up with these things it's really yes so anyway we're going to starting at one o'clock that's what we're gonna do we're going to do a bit of a retrospective talk about the biggest stories of this past year and also get your impressions of what the biggest stories work and of course today by this first hour we have been focusing on a huge story the we don't know how big this is going to get in twenty twenty since it began on the last day of twenty nineteen and it is the United States embassy in Baghdad in Iraq and the the people who have broken through that embassy the personnel who are house right now in a secure room what they call that room that they're in a safe room right yes yeah and you know we don't know what's going to happen we do know the ambassadors of us we headed back there there no no personnel has been injured but the embassy has been injured to some degree it's a huge facility and they haven't gotten anywhere close to where these people are being housed yet it brings up an awful lot of questions for us as Americans like how long are we supposed to stay in a country like Iraq doesn't want us there how long what it what is our objective there what is it we think we're going to achieve and if a rack needs help with Didache then are the Iranians the best ones to help them because they are aligned themselves with around they want the Iranian support and doesn't that simply make more sense to allow them to take care of their countries themselves if they haven't asked us for assistance and if the people there don't want our assistance it seems to me like we should just be getting out yeah that will not happen because we have oil interests remember that the oil pumped from Iraq is critical to Europe so there is no way that's going to happen we are not Europe no but if the European economy staggers in any way if it is not I wouldn't the Iraqis want to sell their oil to Europe are who controls the oil in Iraq that right now yes I'm assuming we have a lot of control over it I rest my case well I think though that they need that oil in order for their country to be successful do you the Iranians you know they need to have oil income as well I know I'm looking at our log we also wanna Sloan standing here with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies that's why you're hurrying yeah right I want out your priorities are often well I'm a chip off the old shock I got one we are going to also talk about a straight because what's happening in Australia is a disaster please note I'm closing out the hour this is John were often along with Pat Thurston Ross met on KGO eight ten.

"What do you do with that? How did you get to rage? I didn't realize you were boiling already. Your someone who is in control of your emotions you do not. Oh I I'm in control of its because I can't afford not to be in control control of its because I know what happens if I get angry. You can't afford to get angry. And so what I have to do is focus on the science focus on the research. Focus on the kind of work that I can do in the organizations. I work with to see if I can make a difference without making me the focus because I know that when I'm the focus people can use me as a distraction so the work that I do tends to be in the background at tens nowadays not necessarily be beat me berating somebody from a pulpit or writing a an incendiary head but rather working inside. I'd government inside organizations to try and make change but putting my energy sources this this well of gently swirling McNamara. John I know people like to Come at you by saying you're too outspoken. For someone who wasn't that good at basketball used the fame and basketball to become an arrogant gas bag who opined on everything that you weren't really good at basketball but you made it to the top one percent of the one percent to play professional basketball and I don't think people have any earthly idea how hard that was coming from where you were coming from the year that I certainly began in the NBA in ninety-five was near where where they were just so a tiny number of foreign players and they were eastern European for the most part Petra in a vacuum people have got ilk And I was a fat bookish British kid. I mean I've told you this before my my life at that point revolved around consuming cuming books and eating pie. That was that was really where I was. Most comfortable. Sweating was not a fun thing for me and I was people mistake. They think I I I found basketball and I thought here's a route to international fame and money and that was nothing nothing to do with it. I I started basketball because I walked into a gym wearing my rugby kit because it was all I had and I walked into this German and I looked at the faces of the twelve or fifteen people in there and they ran towards me. Grab my mom's I'm was saying he's on our team they. They framed every terrible. Thing I did and everybody knows what it's like to be a total novice unable to catch the ball unable to get within six feet of the basket. Not a clue about what you're supposed to be doing on the floor tactically and every mistake. I made they framed as a pathway to my future greatness an I just knew as these people looked at me and all I could see reflected in their faces. Aces was my potential. I just knew I would never leave the space that I needed to find a way to stay in this space as long as possible. And that's why I wanted to play in the NBA. Because I thought if a SMELLY JIM in some random part of the north of England I if I could find in this space my potential. I'll how amazing might be if I could go to the home of basketball whether it's the best coaches and big gyms that that experience would be magnified a thousand times and that's what made me WanNa play in the NBA didn't your initial backboard Wasn't it against a wall so God so usually in my ankles so many times so many times you go for a layup one of your feet would be on the wall. The other of your feet would be like in the crux of the of the walls of the floor. And and it would just be a regular part of our of our sessions where you know at six or ten minute intervals. Somebody's gone in for contested layup. Somebody comes down down in the crack in the ice that crooks in the wall and his twisted ankle and we're just gonNA take a breather and they walk it off and then we'd go again again but it was partly because because England and really have basketball right. That's how that's it's almost. It seems like we're speaking of ancient primitive times but that's why it was. The basket was against the wall because nobody playing new any better. Oh yeah well. 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..
