"But at that time then actually was the one who hired brent then describe. Brent has a natural. He was just an outright natural. And brennan said you know he. He was Lucky came to him easily. He never took any classes at northwestern in broadcasting and He loved the job and it became evident. How good he was that it In nineteen seventy three and four. He gets some games as a play by play guy for. Cbs sports Nfl games. I'm talking about but he had like the fifth or six game and it was hard to get noticed when you read that far down the line. And he did it an occasional. Cbs sports spectacular as well but his big break came. When in nineteen seventy four jack whitaker was hosting The nfl today. Jack had an assignment to do the irish derby that we can And they brought in brent. Now they tried. We're trying to do it. Live at that point and one thousand nine hundred. Seventy four with the producer by bill fits if i t s who had been at. Cbs sports since Around nineteen sixty eight. Or even. Before that i was trying to do it live. He was having a lot of difficulty because as he said. The pace of the show is just too fast jack whitaker. They brought in brian on this one weekend. And they said brent for brandon was like a kid in the candy store. Everything was easy he he was since Sensation and they knew that brian was the future of the show but when we came back they weren't going to move them out of the position he has been so loyal to. Cbs sports for so many years. In fact for many many of those years jack whitaker was the face of cbs sports in did and play by play for the half of the very first super bowl for cbs yet. John jack jack whitaker is almost like the i call them. Almost like the poet laureate. Cbs sports center. He did something whitaker. Did a great Soliloquy at the end of the famous Pele i game In nineteen seventy five. The new york cosmos literally live on the field after the game had done and it was basically set the tone for american soccer and its future and stuff and it was. He's just he's a wonderful discovery or rediscovery of you've if folks out there i've never really sort of experienced jack. Whitaker essays and commentary for sure a legend. I go into quite a bit of jack's background as well. In the first chapter of the book which is called. Cbs sports that that's the way it was Just to go off on a quick tangent. Jack Landed normandy The third day of the invasion So his dream of being a radio host went down the tubes when he got injured twice when he got back he got a job as a radio guy and i think it was allentown pennsylvania. One did he was Board to jack because all he did was interviewed. The mayor and and the pastor in town and one day walked into the newsroom and heard ben hogan up playing and the marion us open in nineteen fifty. But it wasn't radio was newfangled invention call television and he said so. That's what i should be do. Equipped job the next day went back to philadelphia walked in the wcw and got a job as a sports director. his best friend. W was ed mcmahon. They dominated the late news. Show every night at eleven o'clock along with The voice of Lambeau field john from nfl films and The three of them had the top ratings In philadelphia until the cbs network bought wc. I decided they didn't want a half hour newscast. They cut back to fifteen minutes. They cut out sports. They cut out all of ed mcmahon's commentaries and the two of them thought they were gonna be out of work. And they start at the to mcmahon and whitaker started taking the train philadelphia every morning showing up at the ida agencies which controlled hiring at tv stations and they tried to get jobs with the networks and they were successful. That man got a job as an announcer on a new game show called. Who do you trust which had a guy named johnny carson as the host and carson got the today tonight show. He took man with him and got a job with. Cbs doing analysis on nfl games on sundays and that led to hosting cbs sports spectacular hosting golf hosting tennis for the network and pretty soon he was on the network almost as much as walter cronkite so he was pretty famous by nineteen seventy four When he they tried to move them to the host of at the nfl today and he really couldn't handle that very well and that's when they all knew brand was the future on the network Wasser came in And wessler moved brennan and all became history after that. So so musburger is the natural right. Let how about. Let's talk about. Somebody like phyllis george almost the complete opposite gender experience if you will in sports personality and i have to think but i don't know Probably need a little bit more sort of writing help and or research and stuff or was she a natural in her own way to.

"They go to this island that they've not been invited to denims looking for kong but he doesn't seem to know what calling is but he's heard of cong- right and he's looking for it so they come to this island. They stumble onto the ceremony where they're preparing next yet. The a young girl to be the bride of calm. And i have a lot of questions about that. These people have been living there. We don't know how long they appear to be isolated from the rest of the world. There's this great wall that some civilization has built to keep out call. Whatever it is we don't know yet and we don't know if it is their ancestors who built this wall or some separate civilization and then these people came there later but they have made this cold calculation to sacrifice one of their own in order to preserve the rest of them. And it's working. It seems horrible does but it is working and these white guys come in and fuck it all up. They bucket all up now. I there's also some some drive-by racism here where the chief sees the white woman Yes golden woman. And at first i thought well of course he wants to give congress outsider instead of one of his people that make sense but then i was watching it again and i had forgotten. He offers six of his women for and darrow so he does think she is in fact more valuable than his women that khan will also find her more pleasing on the other hand if he gives six of his women for her. That means six of his people can leave the island. So maybe. I don't know maybe i've given the cheap too much credit. Maybe he's trying to save them. You know let's see how how many will be dumbed down. Take off the island for serve and sacrifice their lady to con. But of course they say no right. Oh gosh let's go back and talk about jack for a minute though. Oh yes tax. Oh jack jack driscoll the three main characters all have last names beginning with d. I don't think that actually means anything is just the thing i noticed. Carl denham and daryl and john jack driscoll another theme of this movie that no one else seems to have noticed is that it is about a young man coming to terms.

I eighteen o four send domain proclaims its independence from france. They adopt as the name of their new country. An ancient indigenous era walk name Haiti which is where haiti comes from. So there's something knowledge -ment there that like this block to some other people before. Yeah but that's the same time. They're not colonizers. They got forced their right. It wasn't shows to be haiti. Yeah so they adopt this and they adopted their flag. The revolutionary tricolour so the flag that france had but they take the white out of the french flag basically because they to them. The white man right then you have that in there fucking fled so a guy who had been one of tucson's generals who had helped beat leclerc general. John jack salinas had himself declared emperor just as napoleon had a history of haiti which was the world's first black republics starts at this point as like a government up to this point not a bad direction right restart with the slavery and the genocide but in the end the better guys beat the worst guys. They liberate themselves in the greatest stories and global revolutionary history. This is the only time In modern history where a slave population successfully rebels against their masters they even. Are we going to get into like some of the economic developments to like how the had okay cool. They figured out how to like subsidize income and like all the good stuff. Oh no no. We're gonna talk about how french the french fuck. No i don't know much about the actual. I know that there's a lot of people will argue that. Like kind of the destruction of the plantations cost some some economic issues. There's a lotta complications here but we must talk about. Okay yeah so. There was some moves. I'm getting some of the names and dates wrong. Because i haven't i i'd have to brush up on it but some of the moves that they made was like okay First of all we already showed you that we could wipe you out but we do now since we burnt all our cash crops. We need to figure out if y'all gonna stay how we're going to subsidize our income here so there was a a couple of economic incentives that after they overthrow them after they overthrew their owners they were like okay so but we still need income jobs. So here's role k. Here's our role. You don't own us and like i said i'm getting some of the information wrong but There was there was a few shrewd moves that this emperor does to like stabilize their income for our stabilized their economy for a while and then it goes to ship. But yeah yeah. We're gonna talk about like kind of what goes awry there but yeah it's a promising start right. Some good moves some good luck but You know obviously today. Things are not great in haiti port. One of the poorest nations in the planet the infrastructure's pretty much in a constant state of freefall there are numerous endemic diseases and almost unimaginable corruption. And it didn't just get that way. By the natural. The natural course of events it was. It was heavily manipulated. So let's start about talking by talking about the us as role in in how we got here so as a public built on slavery. Our founding fathers were very frightened of haiti particularly the massacres of big whites in eighteen. O one and eighteen o two now at this point in time in the united states the idea that a black slave might want to be free with seen as a mental illness. There was even a diagnosis for it. A repetto mania and they treated haitian independence thusly. They consider a desire for freedom from an slave person to be a mental illness. They consider haitian independence to be a kind of viral infection. So they want to stop any contagious any. They want to stop any possibility spreading right. That's what they don't say. Oh hey another. People has overthrown the chains of of of their colonial owners and become a republic. They see oh. This is a threat. So when one patient veteran who had fought to liberate the united states from great britain at the battle of savannah attempted to return to the country he had helped fought to find and tried to land in charleston. He was denied the right to set foot on the soil he fought for. There's just one kind of example of how. Yeah no. you're dangerous yes. of course he was. Obviously this is a danger to them. Because it's a it's a it's a a country built on the human bondage yes Thomas jefferson The great philosopher of liberties slash rapist child rapist Proposed that slaves convicted of crimes and remember wanting to be free was a crime should be exiled to haiti and again hit his goal. Here is he wants to quarantine the black desire for liberty. That's kind of how jefferson sees this. Yeah the most positive moment in. Us haitian relations came after haiti's but before to sants capture When to sought found his new government locked in civil war with a mulatto general named seat regard in regard was mulatto supremacist. Who wanted to massacre all the white people on the island and also reinstated the black population. That's at least how to saw framed the problem. This guy posed in a letter he sent to. Us president adams requesting military aid. He wrote quote regard has has assassinated many whites and this is but the beginning of his heinous crimes. Criminal atrocious misdoings have left. No alternative to the government agent but to brandom is a lawless rebel to muster an army to punish outrages now the massacre of white people justified the first. Us military intervention on the island. We sent over some ships ammunition in two thousand muskets. The aid played a meaningful role in allowing the government to smash redoubts rebellion. This would be the only broadly positive move. The us made towards haiti After eighteen hundred. When the us france reconciled. Because we're having a bit of a tiff when we send those rifles over. The official government policy towards haiti grows more hostile and after the massacres of eighteen. O one eighteen to the united states refuses to recognize the haitian government is independent. This was justified by the united states. And by everyone else because this is broadly speaking how most of the west handles haitian independence. And it's justified by them. Because the french had refuse to acknowledge haitian independence now. France was like one of the big world powers right then like the power so acknowledging haiti as its own thing is a dicey thing diplomatically. Right you see versions of the same thing today. Yeah you can fucking taiwan and stuff. There's contact like do we recognize this country. You can acknowledge a ill like. Hey man you know you took l. is like no. We didn't know that was different dow. Don't count the. Us refuses to acknowledge. like china. the chinese government for years as the legit like after the civil war like we all the time as well. Yeah the only ones off. Yeah yeah. I love the like yeah like even just america being like we've never lost a war like what about vietnam that was different. Was our war within a war because you have to declare you know you gotta go declared. It's only enough. It comes from the his sparkling com different. Yeah so it'd be like. Nah i don't think i don't think as a country like yeah fan. Yes they are okay so the. Us fights and other war against great britain in eighteen twelve and we rely heavily on trade and aid from the french. So obviously there's a. There's a lot of vested interest not recognizing haiti because we don't wanna piss off france now as a result from independence from its independence up to about eighteen twenty five. Haiti is a pariah state. This enables the first emperor of haiti dessalines to justify and increasingly repressive regime. Haiti had nothing but enemies and the entire effort of the state was devoted towards maintaining a huge army and a massive system of protective fortresses. Endesa leans becomes basically military dictator. And this is again she. She's got a point like they. They wanna fuck us up. They wanna take like us. They wanna take our liberty back. They wanna take this island back like we have to always be ready to fight the problem. Is that when you base your whole society around that it's not the healthiest way under society. Yeah you can't that's not. It's not sustainable. Yeah now desolate again. Like all of these kind of founding fathers was illiterate and was like yeah he comes from a background with that was not education of much. Any form kind was not really an option. As a result of his influence the military becomes dominated by black officers who were like him generally illiterate former slaves. Meanwhile these civil administration of the haitian government comes dominated by mulatto does most of whom had benefited from a better education and this contributes to the. You've already got this really bloody racial divide in this long history of fighting and it just after independence. That divide doesn't get erased. Endesa leans leans into this divide. He'd massacred tens of thousands of french civilians after independence and at the same time he had massacred a lot of mulatto saying he couldn't tell the difference between them in eighteen o four he declared. I will go to migrate. Happy we have avenged. Our brothers haiti has become a blood red spot on the face of the globe a now of course it was born in blood right. He s starts as an act of labor genocide and his yang populated by violent force. Desa leans is not starting a process. Here it's just the natural continuation of that kind of violence Now that said later on in his reign decimates takes an extra step towards. I think he saw it as kind of an attempt to destroy these racial barriers. He declared a policy of bronze fixation which was his goal was to destroy all distinctions of color on the island by force intermarriage of blacks and mulatto now to start this process. He ordered a mulatto general alexandria theon to marry his daughter sela mean who was unbeknownst to him already pregnant when he found out he murdered her lover and pentium declined the marriage and shortly thereafter desa leans is assassinated by an unknown group of assailants It's still why he was killed. Who exactly killed. Him is a mystery in haiti today. There's theories that he was murdered by unpaid soldiers that it was general pantheon What matters more than the specifics of like who did the did. The deed is that from the beginning. Haiti is burdened by an history of authoritarian leaders which again starts with the white rulership the colony and is burned by a history of violent changes of power right. It's born in blood and that they don't break the cycle Power would swing wildly over the next years. Between mulatto and black generals generally representing different geographic and racial chunks of the island The term so funny. It's not funny but the word bronze of occasion just if you just said you're like a sound conrad like joe say like if you just just just the idea of like. Let's just get this like that beautiful brown on people. You know what i'm saying like it's kinda dope but then it's still like you're still addressing this scourge of a racialized society that for multiple millennia. We didn't have you know an like in terms of a social construct is where it's like we just you dated regionally you dated tribally because like who was around. You know what i'm saying but once you start putting these like around you know they're phonology and and the you know the the shit that like created this like racial colorized cast that like has just become a scourge. You just see how many attempts we've had to try to undo this curse across across the cultures and this was just one. His thought was well. We'll if your kids is all will look at. We'll find you somebody that's hot is that's fine. You know and make a baby with him like you can't be mad at this little brown baked. Could baby look good. You know so you add i. It's like you you're following the logic in it's just but it's like being able to step back and examine like like just the racial is ation of our world like fuck man. We're still trying to solve this issue. You know yeah. Yeah and i like. It's it's it's super messy. It's one of those things like you'd be. You can talk about how it happened in like what the actual impact was but it is kind of this. Like as much is many fucked up. Things is like different players in this period. Carry out his guys like this lean. It's like also what worked right. Yeah coming in and a messy messy somewhere. I can't like i can say that didn't doesn't seem like it worked out great but i can't like well here's what would have worked better right right right. Yeah like what are you trying to do the hardest thing ever right yeah. Gossip suggested in the year twenty twenty. Yeah i think about god like yeah you got eddie as oh three three centuries later you've got it out looking back at me. Yeah eighteen hundreds haiti air conditioning. Probably would've solved some problems don't you. Why don't you guys conditioning. Staffs american dishing. Also antibiotics just throwing it out there. I'm just saying how automation yeah. You have all these people. There's a machine alot. We eventually invented the ford truck. And that made a lotta money. Could you guys have tried that in. Eighteen twenty tried not slavery. Could you try not being taken from your homeland enforced onto an island to to farm cotton. Maybe give that one a shot. They can't try and then they were like you know what. Here's the idea going to try. Not being dark he does eventually kind of. Yeah but yeah. There's no good there's good no there's no engines for for any of these people in this period which is also not to whitewash the fucked up stuff that all of these different haitian leaders do but like what are you gonna do again. So haiti is also in the thing. That really makes this difficult right. Because every every nate new nation that's been born has different kinds of divisions and hurdles to overcome. Haiti is additionally hobbled by something that makes it kind of impossible for them. To thrive economically which is the fact that they are completely locked out of the global market which contributes to rampant poverty and misery in eighteen twenty six in order to gain diplomatic recognition and entrance into the world mark to be able to trade with people right be able to actually make things and sell them and import goods. Would you need to do in order to be a part of the modern world right. Yeah it's that's just the way it works. They're not to So they start. Negotiating with france in order to gain diplomatic recognition and entrance into the world market. Now by this point. The french had accepted that they were not going to regain military control of the island so they agreed to recognize. Haiti is a sovereign nation. If it paid reparations will you sto- yourselves from us so you owe us so you kind of real real real asshole move from france. There a quote from a write up by the origins project at oklahoma state university. The french government sent a team of accountants into haiti. In order to place a value on all lands and physical assets including the five hundred. Thousand citizens were formerly enslaved and declared the value at one hundred and fifty million gold frocks in which in contemporary terms would equate to well. Over twenty billion dollars payments began immediately and although haiti was able to officially by its economic freedom in diplomatic recognition the debt of one hundred and fifty million francs was a massive burden from which haitians have never been able to fully recover. Although the official debt was later reduced. France haiti to pay an annual fee for its national sovereignty for nearly a hundred years from eighteen. Twenty five to nineteen twenty two good lord for almost a century that haiti endured french imposed penury. By one thousand. Nine hundred fifteen. And we'll talk about what happens in nineteen fifteen haiti still owed france one hundred twenty one million francs so for nearly a century. Pay off their hundred and twenty million debt in one thousand nine hundred thousand one hundred twenty one million. Oh my god oh my god. France is a nation of fucking payday. Loan we'll end is just such a such a bit of fucker right there. So much of their resources is a nation. Went to pay off this debt. For instance fifty one percent of haiti's revenues from coffee with to service the exterior debt. Forty seven percent went to pay internal debts associated with building the nation's infrastructure with only two percents available for all other expenses. Why does and haiti have a functional state because they are forbidden by law from building. One other ways. They won't be able to pay off the debt that guarantees their their freedom yet. That for a second. Yeah yeah you just. It's on purpose. Yeah this suffocating. Debt more than any other single factor is why and how. Haiti becomes the poorest country in the western hemisphere. That's it right. We can talk about fucked up things different leaders. Did we can talk about mistakes. Made by and there's plenty of mistakes. Of course all leaders make mistakes. Core is not allowed to build a public sector. Yeah they're not allowed to. They've got that. Money is why francis so nice part of it right free steals from a lot of people. Yeah if you wanna know why. Haiti so fucked up. Walk down the streets of paris. Look at some of this was paid for by the reason. Haiti doesn't have functioning sewers. That's why it's fucked up damn now. Of course the fact that haiti agreed to bri- for bribe france for access to the world did not mean that. The world accepted haiti. The united states continue to have a profoundly toxic opinion of the ailing republic and most european powers were equally unwilling to do business with a nation whose founding was such a threat to their domestic and international order again. All these powers are based on slavery or based on colonialism. That verges on slavery. So even if the haitians themselves mostly just hope and opportunity right. They're not saying like our goal is. Haiti is to overthrow the global colonial system. They just want really have food and shit right. most people. Their very existence though is dangerous to the myth of white supremacy that the european world order is based on get out. Every time we talk about this in the ethiopia episode to think about like you know you. And i talked about when we talked about Spain in algeria right they get mean by this by this african army and then they go in with france with chemical weapons to massacre these people because they can't stand the thought that they were defeated. Tony colonized people. That's the very much of the west attitude towards haiti. These beat every western army put against them. That can't be allowed and it unravels. All of your origin stories. Your creation myths your formation of identity it unravels. You're looking at evidence that you're full of crap. Dan you know you can't let that that can exist in your world. Yeah it's kinda crazy. There's don't feel like a jump. But like i mean it like when i think of like that. Same sort of fear of of the unraveling of your reality. I think a lot of ways. It's that same sort of like germ. That's in this like aversion towards like trans rights in li- yeah lgbtq stuff. Because it's like you have this universe that is ordered a certain way. Yeah and these. The existence of these people means you've ordered the universe incompletely you know it has its genesis. There's an element of like that idea. Fomo right you hear about. You're going to a party that you're not going to and it makes you feel like you're missing out. It's this idea that like if things elsewhere or if things for other people are fundamentally different than they are for me then. Maybe i'm not doing things. The best way possible. Maybe i live isn't the absolute best way. Someone could live and that makes me so angry that i will get a genocide totally because it's not like it's not about. It's so true because it's not about the when you start listening like people's arguments about rights. It's like oh you not talking about rights. You think they shouldn't exist. Yeah you like the reality of their different yes the reality of their existence is an affront to your universe so if i can take their rights. Maybe they'll stop. Existing is that is that is that so logic. Because that's what it sounds like. Your logic is so when i think about like you said like we'll we'll we won't trade with haiti home. We want them to exist here. Don't think this should have happened. But it did. And rather than saying. Maybe i should rethink what i consider reality. Rather just say nah. We'll just make them pay forever. Yeah we'll just we'll just we'll just go out of our way to sabotage them forever. Yes you know who else will go out of their way to sabotage. Hey not for going into black community. Yeah foof boy. This is not a great way to do an ad plug How do you feel about getting food delivered to your house. Now lie to you man. It's one of those one of those things that are clearly a privileged. But that's what that word means because it rate well there we go. What better way to my friends. Thought my mommy stories were funny. So i started recording a podcast during naptime called ground on the wall. It's given me quite a head start on a college fund. There's a reason. Podcasts are popping up everywhere podcasts can make money a lot of it and spreaker is the easiest way to start a podcast. I just graduated from university of boulder.

A repetto mania and they treated haitian independence thusly. They consider a desire for freedom from an slave person to be a mental illness. They consider haitian independence to be a kind of viral infection. So they want to stop any contagious any. They want to stop any possibility spreading right. That's what they don't say. Oh hey another. People has overthrown the chains of of of their colonial owners and become a republic. They see oh. This is a threat. So when one patient veteran who had fought to liberate the united states from great britain at the battle of savannah attempted to return to the country he had helped fought to find and tried to land in charleston. He was denied the right to set foot on the soil he fought for. There's just one kind of example of how. Yeah no. you're dangerous yes. of course he was. Obviously this is a danger to them. Because it's a it's a it's a a country built on the human bondage yes Thomas jefferson The great philosopher of liberties slash rapist child rapist Proposed that slaves convicted of crimes and remember wanting to be free was a crime should be exiled to haiti and again hit his goal. Here is he wants to quarantine the black desire for liberty. That's kind of how jefferson sees this. Yeah the most positive moment in. Us haitian relations came after haiti's but before to sants capture When to sought found his new government locked in civil war with a mulatto general named seat regard in regard was mulatto supremacist. Who wanted to massacre all the white people on the island and also reinstated the black population. That's at least how to saw framed the problem. This guy posed in a letter he sent to. Us president adams requesting military aid. He wrote quote regard has has assassinated many whites and this is but the beginning of his heinous crimes. Criminal atrocious misdoings have left. No alternative to the government agent but to brandom is a lawless rebel to muster an army to punish outrages now the massacre of white people justified the first. Us military intervention on the island. We sent over some ships ammunition in two thousand muskets. The aid played a meaningful role in allowing the government to smash redoubts rebellion. This would be the only broadly positive move. The us made towards haiti After eighteen hundred. When the us france reconciled. Because we're having a bit of a tiff when we send those rifles over. The official government policy towards haiti grows more hostile and after the massacres of eighteen. O one eighteen to the united states refuses to recognize the haitian government is independent. This was justified by the united states. And by everyone else because this is broadly speaking how most of the west handles haitian independence. And it's justified by them. Because the french had refuse to acknowledge haitian independence now. France was like one of the big world powers right then like the power so acknowledging haiti as its own thing is a dicey thing diplomatically. Right you see versions of the same thing today. Yeah you can fucking taiwan and stuff. There's contact like do we recognize this country. You can acknowledge a ill like. Hey man you know you took l. is like no. We didn't know that was different dow. Don't count the. Us refuses to acknowledge. like china. the chinese government for years as the legit like after the civil war like we all the time as well. Yeah the only ones off. Yeah yeah. I love the like yeah like even just america being like we've never lost a war like what about vietnam that was different. Was our war within a war because you have to declare you know you gotta go declared. It's only enough. It comes from the.

"All before we get in and break everything down. I want to remind everybody. Hit subscribe. And we are brought to you by the las vegas review journal and also presented to you by blue wire podcasts. So mo- derek carr his words they're talking about being Invested in the silver and black that. He's the guy that will go down with the ship. Those words coming from derek carr. I think definitely is a testament to the loyalty that he's had with the team and vice versa Would you made so far About what you've seen in the offseason from derek are not just his technique and things that he might be working on and things of that nature but Basically the the level of commitment that he has to this team and how much he's going to try to make this team improving playoff team. I think there's no secret. Derek carr is loyal to the raiders and the shield as his he said today he said this past that basically maybe in different wording. He doesn't envision himself playing for any of the team. You'll even business wearing the silver and black. And i think fans do appreciate that. I would say ninety nine point nine percent of fans appreciate that. The problem is fans want to win a lot more. And i'm not calling derek car a loyal loser but fans wanna winner. If you're a lawyer winter they'll hold you to the highest the highest regard and and just to be ice. Ridges raiders haven't won enough games with their cars starting quarterback and i will say this is not all on him. Of course we know about the defense we know about this function of the organization in past years later change over. He's he's at new offense coordinator. Coordinators had coaches teammates. Seems like things are constantly turning over for him right in front of his very is he talked about that today. I joked about guys a rashard saying you know who who's next to go in. And he he still standing and that's testament to who he is as a player in how good he is. And how solid. He is as a starting quarterback under center in. A lot of people will disagree with that say. Maybe it's time to move on. But i think i think. His loyalty and ingredients is love for veteran. Quarterbacks keeps him in that. See as a starring guy there. And i think you hear a lot of what he said this this season a lot of as will say well. We've heard this all before. We hear a lot of the same things. Their car says the podium. But i will say that. His his loyalties unwavering loyalty despite all the rumors amateur. He has a chirping from the fans. Who may not want him to be. The starting quarterback this team in the upcoming season pass offseasons offseasons and he still standing and he takes that he says you know what. I'm still loyal to the team You know raise took a chance on in the second round. Pick them up. And he's been the starting quarterback ever since he's had some opportunities to make the playoffs. The playoffs one season has fallen short in recent years but he constantly is always saying that he's positive. And you wanna hear the positivity but you also want that dose of reality not gonna get their car saint thing negative but would he talked about today. Stood out to me was that he talked about trust in that offense of lying. Because that's a that's a big talking point this off season Has been turnover that in that area. Which trent brown and gave jackson ronnie hudson all going elsewhere. But he said look. I've played with incognito. He's coming back play with denzel. Who started fourteen games last last season. You know. even even john simpson has played a couple of games. Twenty two snaps. I believe last season so these aren't new guys so he's trying to pump in that that okay i i know these guys is not totally brand new but he did say we have to sugar on the funeral fans were like to hear that is what they want to hear what they want to see. And if we look at what we talked about here earlier on us. Setting things up with With kurt warner's quarterback analysis and review. We've seen that. The aggressiveness is what has led car to success in. The nfl is when he sticks with Being aggressive when he stands up in the pocket when he keeps looking down the field for his options on his read. So when you start taking into account what we saw in that video. Because i know you tweeted about it. You talked about it. How important is that to have to be able to get over that. Hump is very important. I think Kurt warner hit the nail on the head and his aggressiveness in his conservatism. That that balance. Lead the difference between the raiders making the playoffs or dismissing it. As you know the you know the race have been kind of five hundred lately and he broke down very well and and again. I'll say this a lot of the things that he did say are things that his critics have said in the past but he put it on video and he led us. He showed us your good examples of where kerr made some aggressive throws and it worked out for him and where he kind of prematurely went to check down and that hurts the offense. Because then your defense doesn't respect the deep ball. And i remember tyron matthew saying a couple years ago not last year been to act during the two thousand nineteen season that you know derek carr is gonna throw his running back and tight ends and you don't have to worry about going for the deep ball downfield because he's not gonna test defense net wayne i think Kurt touched on that when he said look. You have to go for the kill shot. Because if if you don't then defenses would be to cheat and you're not planning the hills they could. They could play up. Kreischer your check dow receivers and i totally agree with him. Car has to. Sometimes he leaves plays on the field and sometimes he he'll go forward if it's wide open but as we know the nfl you're not gonna always have these wide open windows. And i did tweet. I do have a theory on this. And i just wanted to add to. Everyone listened to remember when derek carr was that aggressive a gunslinger when he was aggressive with the football and pushing the ball down the field. We last saw that besides the first half of last year in two thousand fifteen to sixteen not coincidentally those when he had those big numbers. Thirty thirty two touchdowns and twelve interceptions in two thousand fifteen twenty touchdowns Interceptions in two thousand sixteen. I think that's when he was at his most free. And why is that one was before he had that ankle injury to believe he felt like he had. He had the leeway to do things on his own. He doesn't he can go outside the script and make his own plays under muss grave now. I feel like he doesn't feel like he completely. Has that autonomy under jon gruden because let's look at the dynamic of the situation must grave was just an offensive coordinator right so with the head coach. John john jack del rio you saw. He wanted to push the ball downfield. He wanted car to be aggressive. You start out in the first week. When the raise went forward against the saints in new orleans and as for that touchdown to win that game that set the tone for two thousand sixteen season car fell like okay. This coach trust me. He wants me to go for. He wants me to be aggressive now. Jon gruden say that but is derek carr comfortable going out of script. When knows that his head coach is also the shot. Caller for the raiders. And what i mean by that is. Let's say derek carr doesn't run the play that gruden wants takes his own hands throws interception or mesa Isn't happy with. I feel like i don't know this for sure. This is just my theory. But i feel like in the back of cars mine. He has to stick to the script because he doesn't he may feel that grunwald. Find someone else who will stick to the script. Because remember again car was at his most free. He was listening to his offense coordinator who doesn't have the same power as gruden has right now so when you have a head coach who may not be happy with you changing plays and doing things on your own. He can ship you out at any moment as you saw with cooper and khalil. Mack if he could ship those guys out ship out a quarterback who may not be running the place that he wants. I can backup cars mine. He understands that okay. Gruden may want me to be aggressive. But i i should do this. The way gouden wants it done. Because if i don't. I could be out of here next and again i'm not saying cars. Afraid of gruner. He doesn't wanna do things. A lot of scrimmage and. He doesn't have the freedom to do that. But i'm saying at the back of his. Hey thinking if i screw this up and good and gets to upset could be out of the door and i think that's difference between him being free and musk.

It would be a very funny so anyway. Okay chet hanks the founder of white boy. Summer is tom sun.

"john jack" Discussed on Is The Mic Still On
"That sounds like a reach too because white people they fucking kids too so is that because they were used to beaten black people. I don't know it's not that that was just what goes. I mean the hottest. But i'm just saying. I don't think way people one. Oh i don't i don't know man. I don't think that it depends on the parent and the kid in a situation. That kind of discipline doesn't work for every kid. But if the parent is is paying close enough attention and they see that this is what works and this is what a steering them in the right direction then. I think it's fine. Because i i mean i grew up in a household where i staw- regular domestic violence But i was also spanked as a kid. Now if you want to go to some like dr phil ass motherfucker. I should be out in the world. Beat the shit out of my friends wives. And i've never done any of that. Why because i see that that is not the way things are supposed to go. But i also didn't immediately say well. Every single level of violence is immediately wrong. No like if i went and i stole something and i got caught to spank the shit. Adamy me and then. I learned as a child whereas some parents will be like well. Let me sit you down billy. Why did you steal will mama. I wanted this toy but what is coming after me for the money will mom i need say no but you still took it billy. Yeah because i wanted it. Okay well don't do that anymore. Sure that might work for billie but that also might not work for john. Jack james how is this a matter of the kid square now. This is going to get quick. Like i agree with pretty much everything like like. I don't agree with probably board and a half to sit there. My mom did a growing up with me disciplinary things but in which is why. I don't aplomb now. But i'll still win say that i was raised wrong. I think she raised me like kosovo saying the circumstances and seeing other children my age and how they veered off and did other things and just make sure that i did. Even though i wasn't that particular type of kid. I think he just wanted to make sure you know what i'm saying. The floor is like no just no you get your ass beat if you do. You know what i'm saying. Like i probably didn't need to get my book to to know some things and i actually used to say i used to tell me how you could have just told me that i had weapons. I'm like look you don't have the woman you know what i'm saying like i get it. I'm not gonna do it anyway. But was this because any little any little can make me off a different way. Yeah yeah. I don't think my macho the now in those type of circumstances that are gonna say kim's point they may have not had it wrong for the state of the world that we were in men but it doesn't necessarily apply anymore. I think well. I won't say anymore but it may not necessarily apply in certain situations or with certain children. I think that goes in to.

What would you think it was better. And you're the new chairman in charge or whatever the hell that was. Yeah yeah no. I understand that. And that's a lot like Like bernie man in many ways right where it's there's people are they do their own thing there and then they create their you know their car or whatever and just to make it entertaining for others. Like they're no they're not getting permission. They probably are at this point getting permission to with no. It's it's totally changed. The i've never been burning man. I've covered it several times gain. You gone and let me see if this rings true. The culture a lot of the people they wanted a man. If you brought it it it belongs to everybody. We're just sharing and kind of doing whatever you got a little secret club of. You're like in will pour salt in your generator because you have fun not let me you know so. I'm just wondering you know how. How how's it work. And you go there and put on the big dog not worry about those ambi- hordes i mean like they have like ten principles so one of them is just self reliance so you can show up and you can you can shop with nothing and be okay and they have everything that you want there but you have to make it happen yourself and it doesn't mean that like you show up everything belongs to everyone. It's like you show up and whatever you want to offer to the the call at the pie like to the people there into that event you you market it you saying. I'm doing Naked yoga over here at this ten. Whoever wants to come can just show up and participate. So it's just and then that's the way the whole event is like Each person brings different thing that they're passionate about or that they wish existed in a real world that you know different rules or regulations or maybe they just didn't find the right people who could do this or want to participate in that but the point is that like anything can happen there. Can you exclude people Yeah i got my. I got my you know. Zombie apocalypse fenced in. You know westworld. Whatever and i go no you you gotta you know. You're not pretty enough. You're have enough money so that they have like a thunderdome. You know from that movie. Where like the guys hook up and like in the dome in there fighting each other with bats and stuff like that. I mean like you just have to understand that like if you get hurt. It's at your risk and you know obviously like little kids and if it's not kids appropriate key people to bring their kids there Then they're like you can't but they they don't really say like you're praying. They definitely have like more elitist Like events and camps that you have to pay for if you're not invited you can't go to the back room and like that so so they have different levels different tiers to it for sure but like even all those camps that are really expensive in front like you can go in. You can say hi. They have events stuff like that and they understand that people will be coming in and out. China china talk to you and and that's part of it too so have you gone Have you gone to other. Thanks jane have you gone to other events here in america yet. 'cause it's always know you got into a lot of conferences. You've got a lot but a festival just like adds a field piece out. Though is the first thing like this. I've been to yeah really. Yeah yep this is its first year so i know what's going to happen next year. It's going to be bigger in the year after that. It'd be bigger. They're gonna find an equilibrium and it'll kinda but what would you think you go god. Vip man you got an rv where you care. But i'm you know they need. They need what do you think. I don't think that. I think that Better communication would be a big thing like about what's actually happening They have a telegram apple on it. But i honestly just like the like even the agenda about who's speaking when or what the bios of the speakers are like. Oh my god all right all right all right. This is what happened. We go to jack. Lopin they go. Hey man. I wanna be on the stage and i need my. Who's in charge. Who's in charge of the microphone. Nobody is so everybody is. We'll get up there. Well who's going know when i'm going to be up here. I don't make some flyers. Put him on the ala houses. You know put Put him up on Donna we get another chair for san we. We got flyers that we put up a guy with bullhorn. hey so and so's whatever. Well then they had to cap some organization. They're going but that's not connected here now. We're out in the middle of nothing. So one guy comes in he. Beams microwave in from A microwave and top of the hill then beams the internet down to the people and they got do crypto transactions. But he's like know. That's so you got to pay me to do this. You pay for my whatever. Well they go lenient an app. We need so. They created this jack. That net was an internal mesh in the valley there. That did what you're talking about. So it's like boom problem solved the next year. They just go jack net. Like oh you didn't bring it so i'm you know it's not my problem right. It happens like that. So then what happens. we go. who's going to sponsor the porta-pottys that's the only structure of the whole thing. Jack elope purchases the rental on the porta-pottys with crypto and a guy just delivers them to the sheriff guy. Who's those john jack you know. I get paid and crypto. I've put the porta potties. Pick them up or duck. you know. that's the only organization of.

Sea Hunt - It's Still Alive - Synthetic Hero
"It's time for another installment of seon. It's still alive and this time we're going back to season. Three episode twenty titled synthetic hero synthetic hero first aired on may twenty first nineteen sixty and we find might down in a caribbean harbor whereas working with a company. Dredging that harbor as mike is underwater scouting ahead of the dredge. He finds an uncharted wreck and discovers. That it's the navy. Ls number four to seven seven and s. t short for landing ship tank one of those ships that can push up onto the beach and offload equipment. I spent three years on t. Eleven ninety eight. The us bristol county in the late nineteen seventies. Well mike notifies the navy and meets with a captain sellers. Who tells mike that lsd four to seven seven went missing on september twelfth. Nineteen forty four. He also tells mike that eighteen crew members die. Two of the survivor's however jack clayton. Who was the captain and tom. Maury who clayton a hero saved might be interested in the finding captain. Sellers asked my to find out what happened before the dredging operators blow up the ship in the next scene mike walking down the pier carrying his doubles in one hand and the other equipment slung over his shoulder. One handed doubles. Wow there he meets the survivors. Jack clayton in tom. Worry along with jack's wife. Susan is it me or there are a lot of suzy's and susan's on john. Jack wants to dive with. Mike and tom will be on. Deck for support might convince the dredging operators to give him forty eight hours on the rack and try to find out what happened to l. s. t. four to seven as the scene shifts. We see jack getting into his gear. Mike i'm not so sure jack knows what he's doing. Jack says he's just a little rusty so the giants dryden and make their way to direct can split up. Mike little confused because jack doesn't seem to be all that incompetent in the water. Well they don't find anything and get back on the vote jackson's really agitated. They only have one more day to solve the mystery as the sun comes up the next day and they're back on the water. Mike is getting all geared up and ready to go. Clayton is fiddling around. Mike frustrated at the delay when suddenly clayton drops tanks over the side. And you see it's sinking to the bottom. Mike has no choice but to retrieve it and hoping that this is last delay and that the tank isn't a jinx on jack's back so now the two of them are back. Underwater jet goes to the bow area. And mike heads. Aft inside the engine room. And he finds a blast hole below the waterline as he exits the space with this newfound knowledge. Suddenly a nightmare of junk is falling on top of him. It could only have been shoved on top of him by one person jack. Clayton isn't a clumsy amateur. Mike frees himself and chases. After jack jack pulls knife and they get into a fight might prevails and takes jack back to the surface with a hammerlock back on the boat. We find out that. Jack wasn't trying to kill mike. Just trying to scare you. See jack confesses that it was all his fault that l. s. t. four to seven seven sank during the attack. It says he's he steered the ship into a reef where it sank and that the enemy didn't do it at all. Tom is very angry now. And they locked jack in the cabin while mike makes one more dive on the wreck. Mike is back in the engine room now and he finds something just then dynamite from dredge operators detonates and the ship starts to collapse on mike he stuck in his regulators damaged back topside jackass yelling to get out because might my need help. Tom refuses pleased. So jack breaks out of the cabin and gives tom a karate chop knocking him out. Jack johnson finds mike. They buddy breathe while he frees him from the wreck and you get back to the bill before they surface. Susan comes aboard. Gets weeks. Tom up just mike and jack return. Jack tells suzy the ship sinking was all his fault. Susan doesn't care. She understands just then. Mike produces his find a piece of metal from japanese shell. That shank sank the four to seven seven. Jack still a hero a synthetic hero. Well i guess. Hollywood took a lot of liberties here. Let's see an ls t. Operating independently in the caribbean by itself doing battle with either a japanese ship or submarine seems a little farfetched. But as we know from mike nelson. Nothing is improbable.
The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola
"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it
Joe Nevills Interview: A Long Goodbye To Mount Pleasant Meadows
"Joe put together a piece titled Biting the Dust Along Goodbye to mount pleasant meadows. And you can go back and Google it on the pollock report now. It was published on June July twenty second of last year and that is now and eclipse award winning feature and congratulations to Joe Honor. Joe Good morning my friend. Happy to have you onboard here man. Where'd you find that clip throwback I so I started google? I I wanted to come up with something to welcome you to the program. Something Mount Pleasant Meadows related and I started googling race calls at Mount Pleasant Meadows and that was is the only piece that I could find. I'm thankful that you put that together all those years ago. Yeah that was that was Scott Sirnak who actually wrote about in the stories won the eclipse award. The man did everything. He was the announcer. He was the bartender programs from marketing. Director Janitor Even puncher tickets on a slow today the secretary we had to do everything there yet. You know I said this is the top of the show you the peace article that you wrote was so good. It struck a chord for me. Personally I think it did for so many racing fans that have ever fallen in love with the race track. That is no longer there and correct me if I'm wrong. was that kind of the crux in the inspiration for you put this together. It's something that you know. The story took me probably Raleigh about five years to put together from first thoughts to hitting send on it. Just because I knew that I wanted to write something about my pleasant. That was when I closed. Because you know the demand for writing about forces. I mean the the the demand for writing about horse racing in Michigan so low that it's you know someone's going to do something wrong it's pretty much gotTa be me and I knew that I was only got got one shot at this and I needed to make it out so it's something that I've been trying to piece together for a long long time and get the right people to talk to the people that I associated with most with the track who are three people. I talked to for the story and you know. Try to stick the landing because I was only GonNa get one shot at this thing. You know miskin Michigan race tracks have been closing for a very long time. And you're a Michigan native. Why was Mount Pleasant Meadows? The one that was so personal for you. Well there are two reasons one is it was the closest track to me I grew up in town called Edmore Michigan about thirty five minutes from my pleasant. So usually the thoroughbred outposts were either in Detroit or the Detroit area or in Muskegon which is on the coast of Lake Michigan. So this is Kinda my local option. If I just wanted to go play the simulcast or you know just go watch live racing without having to take up. Most of my day month wasn't meadows was my option and you the other one was that it was just very accepting community. It's where my Grandpa taught me to read the racist. Learn the races and you know it was small enough that you got to know everybody because it had to because you know you could. I used to have a joke on twitter that I could go round and high five everyone on the tracks grounds if if I hit a good ticket and so you had to figure out who everybody was you know everybody. And that's something that stuck with me for years after the track is close when you stand stand there and you look at what is the old mount pleasant meadows location. What are some of the things that immediately hit you? I mean you think about some of the people and horses that were out there competing You know mount pleasant was the place where you know. There weren't a whole lot of professional jockeys professional trainers in the sense that this was their job. This was their ways to make a living You know a lot of them were a lot of the jockeys were factory workers or they worked as mechanics next. Had you know the country businesses. What have you you know a lot of other trainers? This was something that you know. They ran their horses on the weekends. Here and if they had a good one they'd go to Pinnacle Race Course a Great Lakes down there but like this. Was You know this. This was the base for them. So I think of those people and it was you know since it's such a small core. The same jockeys are the same group of eight ten jockeys or writing every race. The Same Group of you know twenty or so trainers are sending every horse through everything so I think that and I think the south you know. You played the clip of Scott announcing the races earlier. I think of all the different announcers that they had. I think of you know very specific people in the crowd yelling because you you know you get into a crowd of people have very distinctive voices especially when they're being very loud and you think of you know I think that's the jockeys wife and that's you know certain fan who just lost her. You lost a bet or something and just think of the sights and sounds and you know for me. I think of the smells. There's something that I wrote about in the story how you know. The track had a very particular particular smell when it was going I believe I said it was Plastic seats in the sun cigarettes in the open air and the stuff you find under a chairs. There's boot and it's just you know it's something very particular track that I've always associated with it whether it was actually a good smell or not is to be determined urban but I knew where I was when I was there and that was something that you know. It's association you know that I'm at a place I like and things are going to be all right. There are a few individuals that if you spend time talking with in this in this article and trainer nate funnel is one jockey. Lee Gates is another now many people when I say those names are not gonna any clue who were talking about so tell me a little bit more about those guys. So nate funnel He was born in Colorado. Moved to Oh Michigan when he was teen and he was The came up under trainer named Tony Cunningham. Who was a quarter horse trainer? WHO's actually gone on to do? Very well in Indiana China has been the meat leading trainer there several times and he went out his own in the last few years of track and did pretty well for himself both in the quarter. Horses this is N.. Thoroughbreds and Arabians not plus it had racist for all sorts of different breeds. They also round paints there too and you know it was just a very he. He came to the life of the party. Kinda guy when You know you go over to attract simulcasts at the bar there. As well. He'd always be at the at the bar. You know cracking wise. The people making jokes and just kind of you know he's he'd be the loudest voice in the room and you know he'd do the same out of the race track. It'd be he's the one that would always associate. Let's being somebody who would almost be like a wrestling bill and to the crowd and just sort of like you know John Jacking with people you know like Oh we got. The horse is going to be the favorite right right here. I've got the odd odd that you can do it. He'd always they only got the killer right here and you know he was. He was a big character. He was a big hairdryer. Small track and that really stood stood out pearly gates leave road for his parents primarily Dave and Shirley Gates They wrote on this parents would run on the fair circuit before my pleasant meadows opened and Lee had two riders build so he was the one that got up on the horses when he was in his teens and that just sort of became his thing after that I spent the weeks working at a factory nearby and the entire family lives on. Basically the same stretch of road around Blanchard Michigan. And we're right up on the weekends cans Something kind of interesting about the writing contingent is that the racist would go very quickly on Saturdays and Sundays. It started one. That'd be done by about four so everybody would ride their cards there. And then Grew up with them. We're getting a car together. And drive down to Indiana downs. which is a good five hour drive at least from my blood and they would ride the quarterhorse card there because it would always be the last two or three races on a night card so they leave my pleasant at about four? Drive down to Indiana Indiana downs and ride the horse races. There you know. What ten o'clock at night? Then turn around and come back and ride the Sunday racism applause so now these are people who made their living doing this but it was a hard living doing it to do it all they needed to
The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola
"Safai here with none other than NPR east. Africa correspondent eight Peralta to. Hey there ater. Hey mattie thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled but I want to open with a quick question who discovered Ebola and Google. It first of all. How dare you asked me a a question? I should definitely know the answer to and don't and yeah I already. Google bet came up was a Belgian. Microbiologist I but I think you're about to tell me there's more to the story there absolutely there always is right so I mean you cheated. Yeah what you probably saw is a bunch of White Westerners like Dr John Jack. Mugambi does not. Yeah he was not one of the people that came up yes so he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo. But back in nineteen seventy six. We we emberg he was the first doctor to collect any bola sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote. A lot of history has been written without your name. Yes but you on this Yes it is it not correct did not quite so today on the show correcting the record on a bola the story of Dr John Jock Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing its future to some in the medical community. It's a controversial move. Okay ater so we're talking talking about a Congolese Dr Jacques in his role in discovering Abullah. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa south he said we should start in nineteen seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD in microbiology at the Institute in Belgium and and he could have stayed in Europe but he decided to come back to Congo. But when I arrive here The condition of work were not I. I had no lab. I have no mice for experimentation so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah it's tough to do lab work without a lab you now. He said without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen nineteen seventy six we sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak It's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola. But no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever and he goes to this local hospital but he says he finds it completely empty was nobody there. Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and and people had died there but in the morning when they heard was sent from capitol. They thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital and we started seeing patients. So so what's he seeing. When the patients come in he was seeing people who were very weak with fever they had headaches? I started it to him to make the physical time but at that time. have no gloves you know gloves. And of course he had to draw blood but when I removed they're the city which Blood continued to spread out. It was the first time from two CDs momentum and also my fingers so with a bow. Wow Yeah so he says he he would wash his hands a lot but really really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on and he was able to not get it and at this point we MP. He was startled but then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village also got sick with a fever all the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point I was like. Oh it's probably not those things. Thanks yeah I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different. So he convinced one none to go back to Kinshasa with him so what happens next. She died at a hospital a couple of days later but he took blood samples and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end. That was Peter. Piot who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium. Aw The guy who turned up from Google Search. Yeah that's right. And so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit the CDC in the US US gets involved and they realize this is a new virus that caused hemorragic
