"It felt like the old wwf. You know where they would have the pre match interviews and they just did like a thousand one before the before the show. It was great. It was awesome. I was actually happy that the rain happened. So let's start from the top. And i know you told me to talk about this and i was gonna ask you anyways. How do you. Because you are the biggest cogan hogan fan in the world titus and hulk hogan forever pirates soups. What are you kidding. Me ho me. tease john. Now i love hulk you know that man that was ridiculous and i love the whole a guest host. I guess but i mean it's just so scripted in horrible but it was so tacking it was it was eight hogan and it was hilarious and i loved it anyways just because it was hawk. I'm biased though osos soobee. you're biased. I love to do though even though it was awkward as well like they really tried to force this pairing together and it was like really didn't need to do this right and then of course you know you. They forced it because of the whole inward situation. Because if you remember when it first happened in hall they let hawk come back like titus kind of had an issue if you remember if you remember that whole scenario so i think they did. I think it was forced because that which is awkward. And i think hilarious because although titus forgave. I don't think he forgets to say i heard that. China's said technically forgiving him. But i heard that he was also still feeling that obviously so i was really awkward but it was kind of funny to me and i'm sure well speaking of they let that happen. Also because titus was in tampa so they actually tried to prop him up in his hometown but biggie. They took the championship from. Why do wwf keep letting or keep wanting to humiliate the wrestlers by having them losing their hometown. Do they think that this is good. Because it's not no. I don't know if it's hometown thing. I just think if you look back after the fat none of the world championship changed and so they had to change the littler titles. I think that's really it. You know what i mean. Because how many mania is does a world title never changed especially nixon had to one for each show. You know what i mean you have the world title and then undisputed title. Neither changed hands. And that's rare for mania. You always usually have a title change Meanwhile when i heard it will trump ender explanation is. I'm gonna beat you so it sounds like a drum is like okay. These kids don't even know what the matches but it was just a weapons manage. You know why. Why why you know what i'm saying. I mean they had like a whole bunch of guys around the ding beating drums. And you know the exact same thing you know. Maybe the an open pit you know like the african wrestling. I don't know if you've ever seen it looks like we're like scooting around in dirt. Yes can you know single knees wrestling that whack. I know the the matches it was kinda.

We'll be joined by franklin buff to talk a little bit about that in a minute. Manchester united top of the league first time in january. First time since the sir. Alex ferguson era by your munich. Out of the german cups is i don't mean the be. Let's start with tottenham hotspur because we've been talking about their chances are they're going to be better worse than last year. How they're pushing. I feel like i've seen this again. I think they've dropped ten points from leading positions. They played fulham last night. You figure you know not easy but full no time to prepare as well. We'll get to that in a minute. And there's more count sempe gab. They take the lead the play well for twenty five minutes and then they stop the talking and they just want to protect that lead. They want to control the game to manage the game. But there's another hour to go. But he's not a bad idea necessarily when you've sawn and harry kane and all these counter-attackers but you don't even counterattack. You do nothing. You just sit deep and you just wait and we saw that against wolves. What wolf scored in the end we against palace. Guess what in the end and now we see that a home at home against fulham where you just stop playing hurricane. One sean tonga. The whole game. That's his goal twenty minutes in after that. Nothing just nothing and i just don't understand why i'm more for protecting your lead in the last ten minutes you bring another center box in or i don't know you you put back five and you you make sure that you don't leave to more space and etc but no one. There's an hour to go. Don't give not extra confidence to the opposition team. Don't invite pressure. don't let them play. I i take your point. I'm wondering if maybe this was a game. Where i thought was very good when he was on the pitch. This is maybe a game where i always mentioned him. But if you have a lasalle so that you can bring on that may be all of a sudden you can keep the ball more. You can keep the ball further away. You can be a little bit more balanced in in how you do it. You know rather than going. I mean if you're if you're just right now do you go and you knock it down. Levi's store and say look. Don't look at me. This is the best i can do in this thing. That's true i don't. I'm sorry. I don't think that's the best you can do. I don't know the price. I lease the last time i spoke to some of them. They were happy but since december the six when they went top of the table the seven in the league. They lost two hundred four. I mean this is. This is not good enough. This is just not good enough. And i think you could say your needs better player or you need different profiles there and they're still. I still think that he gets his wrong. That tactics is wrong because the pleasure doing what he says. he's saying. Okay win the lead saw against arsenal in a second of and they were up and that was fine and they managed to get out and okay good but as we said against war against pilots against on this. Just not good enough. I'm sorry you keep talking. Last night. In a game against tim against fulham who had played three days three days before with the strongest team in the africa because he didn't play again for another week.

Samuel Hardy On The Importance Of Faith In Education And Athletics

"We're here today with samuel hardy. The director of athletics camden catholic. High school gambling catholic. High school is a suburban college preparatory day and boarding school and educate young men and women spiritually academically socially and physically in a faith community to develop as lifelong learners and leaders in the global society in the catholic tradition. Sam welcome to the show. Eight may thanks for having me. You got us so. Let's start by talking about you a little bit. How did you get into education. Sure so ever. Since i was a young boy. I have always loved sports and growing up in a very strong catholic family. It was all sports. In god's we're thinking so all through school high school. I played every sport Captain of most of most every team. I play I've sat i. Was i was going to be professional athlete. Growing up growing up through high school. And then you get to college. I went to wilmington university and try to play basketball. And you quickly realize you're not going to the nba. You get out of your little your little bubble and you realize okay reality hip so you're like all right what is it. What do i love. I love sports. I don't abandon it. And i love my faith and i. I love helping people and and reading people. So where does that take me. So i immediately became interested in of the athletic director. I just love business and helping people in sports. And if i can somehow convince myself this is. This is helping people every day then. It's a win win win. So i ended up getting my degree in sports management and in the day and age were in you need. You need an advanced degree. So i ended up going to saint thomas university. I got my mba down. In miami florida in sports administration from there i ended up telling to st john's catholic croats neither assistant athletic director. That's in Maryland so it all happened to real quick and all the sudden. I'm i'm doing kind of what i wanted to do. And then I get the call to come back home to new jersey to take take the role of head director of athletics. Akunin catholic high school. Where i'm from so he's the full certain kind of thing. It'll happen very quick. And i'm just i'm loving what i'm doing right now and i'm so blessed to be a part of this whole this whole process can make catholic right now. It's it's wonderful. Sounds a little like a dream. Come true away and you know like i said i'm blessed and early without my state in each part of this. It doesn't connect so there's no no way around that around that part. Now what do you consider to be the most important part of your role at camden catholic. They so at camden catholic. We'd have around seven hundred kids there and over about twenty two athletic fourteen so a lot of these kids sports with freshmen. Jv and varsity team. These kids are playing sports. So they're all involved in. Athletics was part in one way or another so my is to mentor them to help them become the best the best people they can be And and that that comes from the top Father joe cappella. He's director and when he hired me he he knew i could do the job. He had the education new. I had the experience what he what he really imposed upon me bringing me on. He said sam. I wanna i wanna make these young men and women love the lord as much as they love. Their sport said father. I'm the man for the job. That was my life. Grownups and that is what i consider. My biggest role camden catholic. Now in dealing with all of that you're now having to deal with kofi nineteen. It's been a huge challenge for schools and athletics. What are some of the lessons you've learned from having to deal with the pandemic cogan. What's that right right. Yeah no man like you said you said it's it's unbelievable how this is just taking over and changed everything. We do actually back in march. When when we all had to quarantine. I started up a little a weekly rosary and a lot of athletes joined. And so we kind of stayed in touch through that Zooming zooming all the time. And now that we're back. It's it's like the old saying goes show. God you plan. If you wanna making last well we have plan and half of it gets cancelled. It's it's unbelievable. The amount of postponements cancellations. But let me tell you these kids. These teachers these administrators coaches. They're wonderful through this. They are just going with the flow. They are absolutely adjusting to this better than adult in. You know better than the average person out there so it's very encouraging

What the immune response to the coronavirus says about the prospects for a vaccine

"With a number vaccine candidates against the corona virus sharing promising results in clinical trials and a growing number of studies elving into our mean response to infection. The spotlight has turned once again. On the body's defense mechanisms. I think two questions that really relate to the ability of the vaccine to protect us and our ability to fight off a second infection and so that is the quality of the immune response and the duration of the immune response this week. I'm joined by professor. Eleanor riley from the university of edinburgh to dove into these questions and more. I'm nichole davis. Welcome to science. Weekly ellena you came onto the podcast in july and talk to us about immunity and covid nineteen specifically the relationship between antibodies and immunity. So let's start with a recap on the major players in the immune system that are of interest when it comes to an immune response and potentially immunity so antibodies are protein molecules that are produced by immune cells kobe cells and these cells live in our spleen and narrow and they secrete antibodies off. They've been exposed to a foreign organism such as virus. There are two types of cells that produce. Antibodies on short-lived cells that produce. Antibodies for a few weeks national to the first line response and then some of those cells transition into lonely cells that goto a bone marrow and can produce antibodies for months years. Possibly even to case and then on top of antibodies. have that can kill virus. Infected host cells t cells the two types of t cells one of which we think of such of the conductor of the orchestra of the immune system and these kotei health cells and they very much help the b. cells to make antibodies produce. Growth factors may direct the direction in which the be cells developed and they will still give them signals to turn into cells and then there are the cdte cells and they actively kill virus infected cells and then Antibodies can also bind to these specific cells and help them to kill cells so they recognize little bits of virus on the infected cell bind to the infected so and kill it and then there are cells which are less specific cells that we call macrophages are neutral fills and they just recognized that. Something's not quite right with the cell. They don't necessarily recognize the infected with the virus and they kill it actually or bits of the immune system work together a little bit like you need a whole orchestra to make a good tune when you need all of these cells working together to make a good news arms. And i know you said in july that at that point it was too early to tell how quickly people were losing their antibodies. And we've got to remember here that it's a relatively new virus. What's the latest research saying that seems to have been some movement on that now. What we're seeing is if you all the data together. There's an early peek in the antibodies wants. Lots and lots of antibodies are produced to mop up all virus. That's in your body and then as that virus goes away the antibodies start to decline a little bit. Because you don't need them any antibodies anymore and they settle into a of steady class. O of antibody production. And that's very typical. This kind of two phase response the only peak lots of antibodies followed by sort of standing level of antibodies. That nick for a long time. That's very typical of an antibody response and it sort of relates to the short lived long lived cells. You have lots of short-lived cells making lots of antibody that off and then the long lived cells who that fewer in numba keep on producing. Antibodies for much longer so yes. Let's talk about these long-lived b. cells in the no said the t. cells. What is research telling us about what happens to them and how. How long do they hang around for. So we don't have much data on those are actually quite difficult to look at in humans. They tend to live in the bone marrow for example not very accessible and so we tend to rely on mathematical modeling of the change in the dynamics of the antibody concentration to predict what's going to happen even though we haven't actually been able to see it because it hasn't gone on long enough so the moment the infants is that we have suggests that things are probably okay these cells behaving as we expect them to the was one pay published early on suggesting may be a little bit of a fault with the production of these long midsouth. But i'm not sure that that's been replicated in other studies. I think i saw a preprinted study. That hasn't been peer reviewed yet. Which jested that these visas and t so's lost for at least six months is that. What are the problems here in terms of measuring this so we only have six months data at the moment and the virus really hasn't been around that long so what we can say the moment. Is that the cells assisting for as long as we are able to measure them at the moment obviously in six months or another twelve months time. We'll be able to go back to those people and say have they still got those cells. Yes or no. But in the meantime just looking at the change in the dynamics of the response and mapping it onto what we know the other viruses. My prediction is that these that there will be some long lift immunity to this virus. He said there might be some long term protection. How long term are we talking here. I mean i've seen a lot of people saying well current viruses such as that of course common code some codes of course by coronavirus is of course the protection only lasts for say a year or so. Do we think that our protection against the corona virus that causes covid nineteen mike baxter timeframe or or could it be longer. I think it's very difficult to say at the moment. Say all of the data. We have suggests that these antibody responses are going to be at least as long lived as response of corona viruses. And possibly i might think even probably going to last longer your immune response tends to be proportional to the level of threat that you face so the common cold corona viruses really only colonize our upper respiratory tract so on nose throat and so the virus doesn't go very deep into apology and we make rather grief that effective noon response nose and throat that controls it this coq nineteen causing virus goes much deeper into our bodies it goes down into our lungs into bronchial and therefore the immune response tends to be stronger and they struggle we call systemic immune responses do tend to last longer because they are recognizing that there is a more serious threat that has to be dealt with. Do we know if factors like ethnicity gender age factor in the scale of the immune response. She said stronger. Immune response to your first. Infection is is more likely to me. You have great protection against the second infection. Those factors correlated at all. There's very little day to so far on ethnic differences in the immune response the data. That's coming after the vaccine trials suggests that there aren't any major differences in at between ethnic groups in terms of whether the vaccine protects them will not but we haven't yet seen lab data on their antibody responses with at t cell responses. There is a lot of genetic variation in the immune response. People be aware that some people unfortunately have very severe genetically determined immunodeficiencies. That's just the tip of the iceberg of genetic variation in the immune response and some of those differences do have geographical and ethnic components to that certain genes that either make good or bad immune response on more common or less common in groups countries. But we don't yet know if any of that is going to influence really the totality of their immune responses. We just don't have any evidence much by age. It feels like ages is. It's very important given that the older you are the more risque from caveat nineteen so there are two components to that one is whether you are able to make an immune response again's a virus. You've never seen before and there is. I think really quite good evidence that you ability to make a completely new immune response does decline as you get older. The other component is that a lot of the disease we say in coke nineteen excessive inflammation. And there's also evidence that we get older with less good controlling inflammation so it's a little bit of a double whammy as we get older way are less able to make an immune response to a new virus such as the covid nineteen virus and if we then get the viral infection where less good at controlling the inflammation that it causes a so we know there are several different vaccines. Which looking very promising. You have the rene vaccines at you have vaccines which used a chimp. Virus to bring genetic material from the corona virus into cells. The question is is the immune response that generated the same as it would have been to a natural infection and do the t. cells and so on hang around in the same way. The vaccine is just a tiny component of viruses this spike protein which is on the surface of the virus and so if you vaccinated with spike protein. You make antibodies in tesol responses just to that protein. If you get the virus itself then you get many many more pro teams that you're exposed to a new may make antibodies to some of those. So you responded more limited but you might also say that your response is more focused because it's actually antibodies to spike coaching a really important for neutralizing the virus so the vaccine in juices a narrow immune response but one would hope it would also be focused on therefore stronger on the base the matter and would it be expected that this will provoke a stronger. Immune response natural infection. I've heard some people say that actually vaccine can producer a strong response it coun- if they initial infection is quite mild say with virus like sauce covy to which induces very mild infections in some people i would expect the vaccine to tobacco to jason mewes which is much stronger than you would get after nascent dramatic or mild infection. People get serious dose of coca to make a very strong immune response. And i doubt if the vaccine it doesn't need to be any strong national adopt if it is when it comes to and viruses the coups common code. It's been some concern that these viruses somehow elude the memory b cells. and so. that's why even though we have thousand cells to to the common cold viruses. We will often get reinfected with them. I wonder if they're those same concerns about the coronavirus behind covid nineteen so there is a little basic data. There's one paper that suggests that the sauce kofi to virus that causes covid nineteen disables particular pathway in the b. cell response leading to a poor long term memory response but these experiments done in the lab in a in a in a petrie dish. And i think it's too early to know if that's really what happens in humans so i think we do need to be a little bit cautious and we need to be aware that it might happen. Good news is that the proteins that are believed to cause that problem are not present in the vaccine so even if it's a problem in natural infection it shouldn't be a problem with a vaccine

What's the Best Time to Eat Dessert?

"When is the best time to eat dessert. I've heard that it's better to eat it immediately. Following a meal because the protein and the meal will help stabilize the blood sugar. But i'm often too full after my meal to enjoy desert. I'd prefer to wait a couple of hours. In fact i often crave a sweet bite a couple of hours after eating his that. My blood sugar plummeting well. This is an interesting question. Let's start by taking a look at how eating dessert affects your blood sugar. Our blood sugar does go up after we eat and not just desert but this is not necessarily a problem in fact it's how the system is designed most of the carbohydrates we consume are broken down into glucose which is then absorbed into the bloodstream when blood sugar levels go up. It triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas which ushers the glucose out of the bloodstream and into the cells of the body. They're the glucose used as fuel or if no more fuel is needed it's stored for future use. It's also true that carbohydrates cause a faster rise in blood sugar when they're eaten by themselves but this is also not necessarily a problem if it's not a huge amount of carbohydrate then no matter how fast it's absorbed your blood. Sugar can only get so high and then assuming that your body is capable of producing insulin and your cells are reasonably responsive to its effects. Your blood sugar will gradually returned to normal regardless of how quickly or slowly it's absorbed however eating an excessive amount of sugar or carbohydrate can be a problem for one thing no matter how slowly it's taken up into your bloodstream. It all gets in there eventually. So if you are consuming more calories than you can use. The excess will be stored as fat. But what happens if your body is not able to efficiently. Clear that sugar from your blood into your cells because it's possible for the cells to become resistant to the effects of insulin. And when this happens. The sugar isn't cleared as effectively from the bloodstream. Only is it not available then as an energy source for yourselves but chronically high blood sugar can lead to a number of serious health issues. Insulin resistance is often the first step in developing type two diabetes. A lot of us. Worry that if we eat too much sugar too often it will lead us to develop insulin. Resistance or diabetes. But now we understand. It's more the other way around insulin. Resistance or poorly controlled diabetes results in chronically. High blood sugar. It turns out that eating a lot of sugar or eating foods that are rapidly converted into blood. Sugar are not the primary risk factors in the development of insulin resistance. The primary factors are excess body weight especially around the waist and a sedentary lifestyle. Now that doesn't mean that eating a lot of sugar have consequences if your body weight starts to drift up whether from over eating sweets or any other food that does increase your risk of insulin. Resistance in other words for those who do not have diabetes or insulin. Resistance the short term impact of desert on your blood. Sugar is probably not as big a concern as the long term impact of desert on your body weight. Our podcast received support from aero garden. Aero garden is the world's number one indoor garden system it's a way to grow your own veggies and at home with no son soil or green thumb required.

If you've always worn a mask thank you if you haven't learn more at h. dot. Virginia dot gov so. Should you wait before eating dessert. Anita wondered for example whether the fact that she starts to crave a sweet treat a couple of hours after eating might be assigned that her blood sugar is plummeting a couple of hours after a full meal. Your blood sugar may be beginning to return back to baseline. But that's not the same as plummeting and it's not a problem. It's fine for your blood to remain at baseline. For a couple of hours. Your cells will still have plenty of energy from your last meal. It's more likely that once we're no longer full our minds simply return to the thought of that appealing desert. There's a really big difference between being not full and being actually hungry and when sweets and snacks sound good but vegetables or another healthy choice doesn't sound that good. That's usually a sign that were not. Actually hungry were responding to other triggers such as boredom habit or simply the presence of attempting food. So how can we responsibly. Enjoy desert in terms of managing your blood. Sugar there's really not a big difference between eating dessert with your meal or a couple of hours later even though you feel less full after a couple of hours there's likely to still be enough food making its way through your digestive system to cushion the blow in fact there's even something called the second meal effect which means that a- protein-rich meal can blunt the effect of carbohydrates. Eaten up to four hours later waiting. A couple of hours might allow you to enjoy your dessert a little bit more than you would immediately after the meal and if we're going to have dessert let's be sure and enjoy it on the other hand waiting until later. Could tempt you to eat more than you would if you were to eat it with your meal so if you prefer to eat your dessert a couple of hours after dinner just be sure. The portion sizes stay reasonable. And if you want to enjoy desert with your meal you could always eat just a bit less of that main meal so that you have room for a bite or two have desert without over filling your stomach and finally whether or not you have diabetes and or not you choose to have dessert or when you choose to enjoy it. There is a simple and pleasant way to lower post meal. Blood sugar levels. Just take a fifteen to thirty minute. Walk around the neighborhood. It will help with digestion. It'll keep those blood sugar levels steadier while you digest your food and may even help you sleep a little bit. Better

Diversity 'is a commercial imperative now': Brand Advance CEO Chris Kenna

"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I've Riley did today's senior correspondent based I've read the UK and it gives me great pleasure to welcome a fellow Brit to the show. This week Christopher Kenna is the CEO brand advance the UK based global diversity media. Network. Said welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks for having me. She is Chris So yeah, it's fair to say I to start kind of right at the beginning because I think it's fair to say that you didn't take maybe the most conventional well traveled route into the into the media industry. And I won't stick if our listeners a little flavor if I may of the years that led up to you founding your your current company. So I didn't know where we start kind of at the very beginning Many of our US listeners probably know where the olive man is but. But that's where you were born. Very, very small British island has relation of what like eighty thousand or something like that. Yeah. So let's start there. Yeah the Ottoman. From people on the other side of the potent if you look in. The UK map you've got the big and then you've got islands, which is small bit this a little island right in the middle of the big being. England Scotland Wales on the small bit be an island is a little dot in the middle never rarely shown on whether ups Whether symbol but. Yeah population about eighty, seven, seventy, eight, hundred, thousand. A blockade everyone. You know which Just as. It's off with a with. From the very get guy. I was destined Dabo. Trophies and certificates got a significant for that UH. I don't remember getting obviously I was born but. When could so skip I was in cash in. And when you come out of, can you get like a big thing achievements event? On pretty much anything, anybody's ever written about you open to that point of until you sixteen on the very first thing in now was this. From Jane. Critical Hospital From you spend a number of years in the in the British army. Is that right wherever you based? Yeah. So I was based out a Jimmy Fest So did my member basic training here in England in Boston bond went to blunt it, which is the army school of signals. To do sort of second phase training which is. I was a on communicate so to go. Out to use a radio not but you know what I mean and so I was destined for comes. So maybe not all is so far apart as you think. You. Know army to media we basically doing the same thing. So then yeah I was boasted out to Jimmy went out seventeen. Met My now ex way. My kid when I was seventeen. So. We start on the fatherhood on your after kits. Now they're both off German English they live at JEB new Madonna goes to union bellied son goes to high school and beautiful in Jimmy. Yet did tell us to of Iraq one tour of Afghan and what led you to leave the army. awhile I was involved in an ID so I've epilepsy now. Because of injury on so yeah I icon. Epilepsy in a rifle mix. Ni- I imagine. That's not good company. So and then media came calling for you. Well well, you came cooling for media well I. Don't know who, but but I think I'm good at this. I've lived sound a little arrogant now but I think definitely media needed needs people like me. You. Know just the background I don't mean specifically there's nothing particularly special about May. The I mean you don't people from my background's people that didn't you know two Family Income Kofi Union blind you don't we need diversity of vices. We need diversity of thought. So yeah, I think it needed me as much as I needed it. But no so I started off. Is So when Columbia Street back Manchester. I'd spend a lot of time to care and Blah Blah Blah. Back Manchester. On then. Yes. Fell into acting and presented done even. Go too much into that. 'cause it's a problem, a life of China Forget. But yeah, ended up doing presenting things like price drop TV.

Then, I made a production guy start up production company. Of. Factual shows such shows like queer three did drama series those on TV code the ends I wrote in direct produced directed quish. Couple of football documentaries champions one about. Munches to CEOS an official release DVD for Manchester, say did one class rages as well?

Ex-adviser to first lady: Working for Trumps was a 'mistake'

"This is from page. One eleven of Stephanie. Winston coughs. New Book Melanie and me thirty five days before the inaugural. She says back in New York. I attended a meeting with president-elect trump in his office. The space was packed with. Boxes Trinkets and piles of paper and I thought I was a hoarder his office looked like a garage sale. Stephanie Donald, said tell me, what's going on with the inauguration planning Ivanka joined. Donald than me for the meeting I presented to the two of them. I grabbed my binder over to Donald Side of the desk and sat with my knees on the floor. He sat in his red leather chair leaning back clasping his hands ready for me to proceed Ivanka hovered over me. I. Went through hundreds of pages covering all eighteen events Ivanka made comments and ask questions will there be a red carpet. Where do we walk during the prayed? What about seeding at the swearing in after party? After the parade on Pennsylvania Avenue? Donald said quote I don't want floats. I said, okay. The president continued quote I want tanks and choppers make it look like North Korea There was no way. He really wanted goosestepping troops and armored tanks that would break tradition and terrify half the country. When he vodka North Korea she didn't Bat Ni-. I walked out of the meeting ruffled and worried. I texted close friend and colleague quote. North. Korea style military parade. Bad idea.

Of course, also played a key role in organizing the trump inauguration and twenty seventeen that has led to so much consternation and so much legal trouble ever since she has written the most detailed account of all of this in her new book, New Book called Milania and me the rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady joining us. Now for the interview is Stephanie Winston Will. Cough Miss walk-off I really appreciate the the trust it takes to be here I know you could be anywhere talking about this. Thank you for being here. And thank you for having me so much Rachel really. So that wouldn't rather be anywhere. Else Else I you to say that. Obviously there's a there's a lot here. There's a lot that's very raw here particularly about the distress. About the dissolution of your friendship with the First Lady of circumstances under which he left the white. House. I want to talk first of all though about something what you describe about the inaugural, which is really never been publicly described by anybody involved in it before you're pretty frank about the idea that there's a lot of missing money unaccounted for money in terms of what was raised for the inaugural versus what was spent. Do you feel like you have a general grasp how much money that might be do you have a theory or any knowledge of where it might have gone? Well I do know that at the time that I questioned where the money was going or how much everything costs I was asked to not attending meetings. So. It took me a few years to figure everything out. But it's just you know. People need to just follow the money. In terms of who is following the money it's remarkable that you describe the the difficulty and the decision that you made to cooperate with these multiple ongoing investigations including the Attorney General and. Having received a subpoena from Southern District of New York I know that those are ongoing proceedings and you're limited what you can say but do you feel like the people who are investigating this at various levels? Know what happened to the money? Do you feel like the investigations are on the right track in terms of them, figuring out what happened to these millions of unaccounted for dollars? Unfortunately with our Justice Department right now, I don't really know entirely what's going on, but some of these investigations and that's really sad and challenging place to be especially since this elections right around the corner. I do know that Joan Cari scene is still estimating is still open but as far as the southern district, I don't know where that stands as well as the intelligence May. Have you been has the White House contact you since your book was on track to publish since people started to realize what was going to going to be in this book has the Justice Department or the White House anybody else in the trump administration contacted you. I've actually been contacted by both the White House and the. The Justice Department. Can you tell us anything about either those communications for starting with the White House in terms of what they, what they wanted to communicate to you or what they asked if you? A couple of months I had to cease and desist as well as. Again, the last thing that any of these people want is for the truth to be told. I have lived with this shoulders for the last several years trying to make sense of it all trying to understand what happened. While I was working at the inauguration, but also what happened? While pressure fielding amounting around. Your nine ninety and releasing of where hundreds of million dollars was spent. This is you know it's like Donald Trump is the best game three Card Monte, right? It's like. Everything's a shell and everything's going in different directions chaos is just part of the game. As you said earlier I love it. You know only the best and Quite, a bit quite a bit of the best. You drive in, cow. Sorry didn't mean to interrupt. Please carry on. No No. Politics. This delays very awkward. The satellite delays made all the worse by all. Kofi driven Gremlins in terms of remote studio. So that was my fault. I'm sorry. Let let me just ask you first of all to go back and say whatever you wanted to finish in terms here thought there and I'll just ask another question which is If. The White House was telling the truth when they put out public statements denying that first lady, Melania trump, and the president had no role in planning the inaugural and that the when the White House when the White House said, they didn't know about any concerns about budgeting or how much things would cost or how things would be carried out during the inaugural. Your book would seem to give lie to those statements and make clear that the when the White House said those things that those aren't accurate. The machine of the false narratives that gets created by the White House is so overwhelming and so. Powerful and the fact that people really believed when you look around of the people that were actually involved in planning inaugurations if they're gonNA, pin it on me, is that was Milan. His friend. Works Right. Right in the quarter Malaga's friends the only person willing to help her and. You that's fight light show right on me without in calling me and asking me if it was So my integrity, my reputation everything was destroyed in a matter of seconds and. It was as if no big deal just flip, often move on. And I wasn't prepared to do that have I didn't feel sorry. Having the opportunity to tell your side of the story and to explain what happened during the inaugural to explain even what you could tell was happening with the financials of the inaugural being able to put in this book. Does it make you feel. Not I guess not protected in any way but at least does it make you feel like you're in a stronger position because at least now, you can articulate what you saw where you came from and what your side of it feels like a lot of the frustration that led to this book is feeling that you weren't allowed to defend yourself. And I'm still relying on First Person Council I'm still not allowed to say everything so I'm saying as much as I can within the law I. Think that being muzzled with an NDA for all these years it has been Ostra phobic to say the least I stopped living regular life by a free children a husband I really I sort of locked myself in. And it's amazing to me that I'm part of the three different investigations yet I'm witnessed all of them and it. It really is a raid of Shenanigans and I feel that the trump presidency is just leasing our country and I had no choice to not tell the story. I had to be here. Do I feel protected? I actually do feel more protected because now everyone knows the truth. and. I've been able to share my life story with what happened because it took over my life and. Am I you know. It's complicated.

Trump threatens school funding, demands new CDC guidelines amid reopening battle

"The president wearing a mask in public for the first time at Walter. Reed on Saturday faces a leadership crisis of his own making with new use cases spiking more than seventy, one, thousand on Friday and daily death tolls in Arizona, South Carolina and Texas up by more than one hundred percent in the past month. The worst is yet to come. Come as we work our way through that massive increase and people testing positive Mr. trump is at odds with his top infectious disease expert on the trajectory of the virus. The current state is really not good. We are still knee deep in the first wave of this Dr Out. She's a nice man, but he's made a Lotta mistakes of the federal response as a country. When you compare us to other countries I don't think you can say we're doing great. We're just not is the united. States losing the war against Kofi, no, we're winning the war and we have areas that flamed up and they're going to be. Fine over a period of time, and on the death, rate or mortality rate is right now at a level that. People, don't talk about, but it's down ten fold ten fold. It's a false narrative to take comfort in in a lower rate of death and president. Trump is threatening to make the already difficult debate over school reopenings, his latest front of the culture wars after the CDC published new guidelines Mr. trump called them very tough and expensive within hours. The prison said today. We don't want the guidance to be too tough. and. That's the reason why next week. CDC's going to be issuing a new set of tools. The president warned may cut off funding if not open pointing to democratic governors. They don't want to open because they think it will help them on November third. I think it's GonNa hurt them on November third. Open your schools I don't see how we do anything, but remote education of the federal government doesn't step in now with less than four months until the presidential election. Mr Trump finds himself under siege. To conservative justices he appointed, joined the Supreme Court majority to dismiss his claim to absolute immunity from investigators, seeking his tax returns is a political witch. The likes of which nobody's ever seen before a tell all book by his niece hits bookstores this week near reaction to Mary. Trump's books and many republicans worry as political standing will hurt the party down the ballot in November late on Friday. Perhaps looking to his post-presidency, MR trump commuted the sentence of his longtime friend campaign advisor Roger Stone who was convicted of lying to Congress, witness, tampering and obstruction all to protect the president, and the president has saved my life, and he's giving me the opportunity to fight for vindication.

"On? Yeah but I didn't know home. He's going to be like this down. The Earth is down to Earth is he is a school is the is right like you. Everybody's different you don't know right like so like it's it's good to be really hanging out with like young brothers who are trying to do the right thing and young ish have their heads on straight over thirty right you over thirty route. Thirty respect veterans. This cameras reminds me of the Did you see the the marshawn Lynch When he hit the post game retail? Take care of y'all chicken shake your mental but like people like some people like laughed at it but now he's making a great point young players and make sure that when you get out of this game is game that you love but there is a cost as well as fiscal cost in football and wrestling. Make sure that when you get out of it you have your mind is right. Make sure that you're in a good place mentally. Make sure that your body is is right. Make sure that that you have set yourself up for the future. And that's a big thing like we won't have as much fun as possible. Keep enjoying this right but it doesn't last forever. So like thank you so much I am and with Kofi Trust Kofi and after talking to you for a little bit I knew I could trust you as well and I feel really good about. And we've been very fortunate extremely fortunate fortunate in our careers that not only have we been able to have a blast on a nightly basis but we're also financially comfortable so that when we're done we don't have to men I have to you do whatever or take all these signings just to pay my bills You know my goal when I was done with wrestling is that anything I do from here on is just because I I love it because it's a passion of mine so it's all about having fun and something that's fulfilling and it's not men. I gotta find a way to get booked on this. This legends thing thing and shadow to all the legends come around and is not a shot at them whatsoever but the big thing is and I think you know. I'm sure I want to be involved with the company when I'm done wrestling on a regular basis but it's just a matter of not having to need that desperation of like I don't know how I'm GonNa pay my bills after ten fifteen years of being. WWe Or arresting or whatever industry it is because with football with basketball with a bunch of these other sports. You have pensions we do not. And that's not a shot at anyone. which is the way the pay is structured? We don't so you have have to make sure to take care of yourself. I think like you're saying shut up like young wrestlers and things like that and like people in athletics. I think that regardless of what is your whether you're a computer tech. It person in ups man woman whatever it is like my parents worked for the IRS. While I was growing up and so they told me like any paycheck. You get ten percent of it. Goes Away over here and smartly used wrestle like legit like since I was like seven any like allowance got anything like always put it away so like I feel very lucky to be able to have that instilled in me which I think is a lot of what I would imagine that you're teaching people that are coming to you not knowing a lot about finances and stuff like that. 'cause obviously something that the three of us are very adamant about making sure that we do have that life after wrestling because like we said it just you. You're making money then all of a sudden you're not like me with this. I'm coming back off injury right now. Like if I wasn't a team with these guys I probably be like as far as the wrestling show goes to be very out of sight out of mind in the gaming world yeah cool. I'm doing everything that I'm doing because I want something for after wrestling is done. Which is nice over here? But then being able to know like these guys I love and trust and they're keeping me relevant on the actual show. I feel like we as a group. Nope not only were able to Have Fun wrestling. FM At work. But we're able to help each other stay financially stable as we as term. which is? I think it's very important to us. We do it in wrestling like this but in whatever genre of entertainment or work you do you build your team. Yeah you guys are a real brother. Then it's awesome so yeah so there's all the all the heavy stuff got real. I like it up a little bit. Here's here's my my very indepth the question to you so before you were friends with Kofi or while. You were friends with Kobe for that for that one year in high school. Do you have a specific big memory. That sticks out to you about him something that he did something you experience him doing. So the short answer is no but it's more about the fact that he was more like a ghost right like I didn't see Kofi parties on the weekends. I didn't and see what he was doing. Never saw with any checks or women or girls. He wasn't dating anybody I mean but he was the first to tell you the first to tell you uh-huh snatch your chick doubt tell you that our Mojo hard not be our girls talk to girls man in high school. They all came to me you. So what does this Brag Rag powder Kofi Kingston coming through. All I think also just like one of the most memorable memorable things is that like he was always this way right like one have a lot of fun. Wants to work. Hard is humble about it for sure and then just like wants to crush it. When he's on the match right more will be very specific very dowd in very focused and then just like not take himself too seriously right so as much says I give him a hard time? We all knew he wasn't taking himself seriously. With the Glistening Tattoo walking slow slapping books out of people's hands right he knew he he knew what it really was over Long Nice played along Kofi. Oh don't the book okay. It's just his way he had a hard time on the today. The trump.

But I was trying to because it's a little deeper when he says it right that's GonNa yeah so Trying to make me laugh to try to get your money for the whole day off. Annuities a swing so wait. What are we supposed to be talking about Kofi? Ah Yes so. He gave me tickets right first of all. The tickets are outrageous. They're amazing take seats and I'm like Oh this is great and so you you know as his advisor we're talking. You know the first thing I always ask both these guys is high feeling you feel okay. How long do you think you can stay doing this? It's always like we're having so much fun. We're having a great time. Can you know keep it going. Keep it going right and so you know in your early days. It's like I don't know how long it's GonNa last four right so we don't know and when I saw you wrestling's randy and and it was at MSG and the seats had randy's face on it and you want them a a man and when you jump and broke the table. We're like screaming. It was crazy and I was like an everybody was like you know thousands of people screaming agreement. I was like Yo. He's getting respect that it deserves for all the hard work that he put in. That was that was awesome man. I was sick. I forgot you were there now is that was like all all time favorite moment. Oh yeah you also like you look a little bit stronger back to see me see. Let me now. You know I'm still strong. You know what I'm saying. I'm I'm still. I'm still strong. You just used to seeing now. You know that it's been it's been great so like watch them Afar until you know. See All your guys is right like it's been it's been really cool guys transition from From your friendship that you had to you becoming financial advisor for these guys madden This game I'm taking over your money. You're on the headset on man you. I'm doing like finance stuff and he's like. Oh Oh cool man. It's the only time he wasn't talking smack. Yeah cool man and I'm like oh you shouldn't like who do use years ago. I'm all covered. I got someone and I just kind of put it out. You know what I'll I'll take a call so he took a call and that was twelve years ago which is crazy and you know just kind of like to back up a little bit and bring it down or anything like that but sometimes we're At ATV people from back in the day come through and sometimes it almost feels like they need to be there needs to be at TV to get like an extra pay day. Or whatever. And I just feel like man you know we. We are living our dream and we're getting paid to do it when it's all said and done you should be financially set you know. And that's something that a lot of people especially early in their career don't think about and Luckily like on the you know on the on the xbox or on the headset you start talking about it and I got to thinking I'm like man you know we should. I think about like financial dependence and whatnot because I don't want to end up having to like be begging. Do you my way to get onto television and get a payday. You know what I'm saying and then on top of that to like to to have somebody who you trust working your finances to me is like of the upmost importance because you hear about stories. I mean Gosh who wasn't Lavar Ball Lavar ball son. I can't think of his name with big baller brand Lonzo Lonzo ball so they had the big baller brand sneakers or whatever that were coming out and then he found out that like his dad's best friend who was supposed to be like Organiz thing like you know ended up stealing. Millions of dollars was worth of his money as a man. Like you know that guy was supposed to be trustworthy. Yeah what if he was it so luckily like with me and shop like we've had the relationship where we've known each other from you. You know what I'm saying is only a year in high school like I felt confident enough to trust you with my money to the point to then recommend e And two is less than you have to worry about when you trust this able to You know handle your finances. Make sure things are progressing in the way that you should not think a lot OUGHTA wrestlers now young Russia's need to prioritize that you know what I'm saying like from the jump. I wish I'd done this stuff earlier by the time that we started talking. I think I was already like what three years deep deep or something like that but you know we ended up getting on track. Yeah so the interesting thing is when the introduced me. I don't I don't know you I know Kofi in so like you know do a little research google you you know. And it's just like this crazy maniac. Dude I mean on TV. I guess I'm thank you and I talked to you on the phone. You're like it would use the cool. What's going.

I'll go coach over here. I coach so now. I'm telling shrout trying to coach them up. You know. Trump is out there struggling. He claims that he heard me. Say Trump Doda your back. Go to your reduced shooing ruling the custom but two amateur wrestling. That's how you lose. You was it must have misheard would be you know this story over the years. Okay but that's not what I said. Well it's just gotten multiple people who saw it and heard it false also. Let's US know lifetime we beg to differ. You think that I I would make you. I WANNA cost the team points by telling so you can go to your bow. It would be against this like I wrestled one hundred and twelve pounds and big for I was like the big e one hundred. Twelve pounds I so like it would be like the first round against the scrawny kid who like barely could get to the weight class was blatantly going to dominate. The Kid Kofi would just stroll call me right so it's just kind of funny right from being around him normally. I didn't know about the trash talk. And the level the extent that he goes into when he's actually in the zone talking trash. I didn't realize that until a up down on the first time that we played video games for real competitively and now to me on a different Kofi that I didn't know existed so has this always existed has always done this to people. Yes so he has a unique ability to get in your head because he knows what to say. And how did the world as you from the inside and out and the worst part about it is that. He's he's so articulate. What the words that you can't you can't even keep a straight face? She like Yo you got me. I'm already finished so in wrestling wrestling. We used to like The way we practice one person was standing in a circle and people would rotate. I'd get everybody and since our Russell one twelve at wrestle against him and I was done before even started right fast forward many years. I'm a professional now and I got xbox live I'm trying to play some madden. I'm trying to play some streetfighter MHM like the the trash that is coming out of his mouth. It's a poetic when it gets you so mad. Ah Right and so you're trying so hard to like imagine imagine play Madden and having somebody just like punishing running the ball up the gut and you can't stop it and he just constantly trolling you like. You WanNa throw your control across the room Right and so You know we were always able to keep in touch based it on video games and that's kind of how we were able to stay in touch. It's it's something that we say at times unfortunately to deal with because 'cause I said many times and I'll say it again to them. Kofi is the worst winter and worse loser. I've ever met in my life if he wins. It's the greatest day a history of days ever but then if he loses he always knows exactly what to say to make your win like end justify railroad cheapens. Yeah Yeah Yeah Oh yeah a great job. I mean the controllers were weird. I mean it's it's good good job. Good job he horrible support things like I actually uh. Recently we watched the pool video. Look so confused. He knows what he's doing. He's trying to play it off what he knew. I don't play pool. I don't even really know the rules. Apu Pool and the way. This man spoke to me the way he degraded me didn't trying to encourage me at all. But he this thing he does and then somehow by some fluke look. I ended up winning and he wouldn't even let me enjoy the win. Cut off the episode. But he does this all the time. Yeah and the thing is we always log Kofi great human being and the locker one of the most beloved people in the Locker Room. You'll ever meet in wrestling. This man is just talked about as one of the greatest people ever and when you play a video game you think maybe.

"The old title. And we're like, okay. So when Kofi winds, and they're all celebrating they're going to go big egos to go get the the title for from Brian in the hemp title. And he's like, no, no, no, no. And he tosses that aside, and they unveil or they pulled the like the velvet they had under the title off to reveal the shiny sparkly. Freshly cleaned w championships. So they give it to Kofi. And then they pull out the box. And you know, they're the shirts commemorating coatings Kofi sway when should say Cutty Kofi talking to fast. And yeah. To the people out there that went in search shop and claimed that WW spoil the match because the shirts were already on shop win the match started us, what the hell are you doing searching WW shop during wrestlemainia like who decide who's sitting there washing people's merch come in to spy, wrestlemanias spoilers. Do just watch the show. Okay. Just is not that important. Okay. They'll be they'll be spoil anything you split. It for yourself. Because w w didn't put anything out y'all went and found it. Yeah. They didn't have anything announcing that they didn't say anything anyone about it. They legit. Just had it up on the site ready to go at the end of the match it probably put it up dirt. Like right before the match was going to go live. So they just like, okay, we're going to post it. And then, you know, when the wind happens, it's like a deputy shop and get your shirt, and it's already they're already live. That's probably what happened because it's like who is going to go looking for the shirt during the match because you had to go searching for you had type in the phrase new day, the find it, and it is what is the new Bryan shirt that was model later in the night was also on the shop. But no one talked by that one anyway as modeled by the beating, but yes, this is a tremendous win for Kofi. It's a historic win. And congratulations to him it his beyond.

"All right. And then dating Brian and Eric grow come out and cut up promote about Kofi Kingston, not deserving the opportunity and saying you people comparing copays rise to my rise five six years ago. They're totally different. He was hand picked out of a tag division and given an opportunity he never earned and he's just nothing. But it'd be plus player throws that word back at Kofi. What you think of this is a hill. Promo for Brian. Good problem. Okay. And then Kofi Kingston gauntlet. Did you play four square on the playground? When you're a good way. I thought it was too early. If I saw the girls played, yes. Going on. I don't know if you're if the idea was. We'll investigate that another time. So watching the Kofi segment, and I was watching an I was just bored. And and so I started thinking about why? And yes, they did another long gauntlet recently that doesn't help things and yes, the faces constantly being against the odds has been done so much for twenty years now that it's tiring demoralizing, but the biggest issue to me is that they've taught you not to believe in anything to be tells you because it's run by these he'll thority figures who I all the time. They said Becky would get a title shot if she apologized, she apologized and they took away or title shot. Anyway, vincit coffee, we've got a title match, and he didn't. And so why invest emotionally in a long match. If you know that they they're likely to just change the rules at the end, no matter what happens. And then that's exactly what happened which just further cemented that like you were a sucker for if you were carrying about this thing because the whole thing is just, you know, just a waste of time. I mean, if you beat Brian Vince could've just set up some new obstacle. It's it's not it's not a matter of needing to heal to be fair. But you have to have some semblance of a sense that their rules to the game in order to came to care about the game. And that's where foursquare come said. When I was when I was a kid. I'd forgotten about that. It's like a callback already in fifth and sixth grade we used to play four square where you had four squares and yet a ball, and you basically try to work your way up to the top square. And I don't know if other people play this way, but the big hook the way we played it in my elementary school was top square got to make the rules. So they could basically screw over all the other players with rules that benefited them and nobody else and. Convoluted rules at that. Yes. And they could make up these new rules as they went along, you know, changing things. And so you'd Wayne in line to get in the game and try to work your way up to the top. Because if you're at the top, you could screw all the other players with your advantages of the rules, which was a big deal because it was like being the king of the whole thing. And you know, you could, you know, take advantage of you know, of other people so. So sometimes it's like it's like a metaphor him. So. Times the person in the top square, though, would take it too far and the dictate rules where not only did they have the advantage. But they'd basically make it so that it was basically impossible for the other kids to compete, and this this would happen on a regular basis. They'd set it up and people, you know, after scoring this person, and that person to other people would just be like Africa. They lose interest in the game. And they'd go play something else..

"Wachner Biden's briefing the briefing is a curated collection of featured articles essays toast that I think are worth listening to. So here's today's stories. Obama recalls Kofi Annan's integrity, persistence, optimism, the former president honored the former United Nations leader following a non Steph on Saturday by Hillary Hanson for huffpost. Former President Barack Obama paid his respects to former United Nations, Secretary General Kofi in on Saturday after a non Steph at the age of eighty Kofi Annan was a diplomat and humanitarian Wim bodied the mission of the United Nations like few others. Obama said in a Facebook post, his integrity persistence, optimism and sense of our common humanity always informed as outreach to the community of nations. Long after he had broken barriers. Kofi never stopped his pursuit of a better world and made time to motivate and inspire the next generation of leaders, Michelle, and I offer our condolences to his family and many loved ones the Ghana-born and non had publicly congratulated Obama on his two thousand eight presidential win saying that the election demonstrates America's extraordinary capacity to renew itself and adapt to a changing world a non who won the Nobel peace prize in two thousand one for revitalizing the United Nations. And giving priority to human rights also praised Obama when he won the award in two thousand nine, it was an unexpected, but inspired choice. Non-statement read in an increasingly challenging volatile world President Obama has given a sense of hope and optimism to millions around the world. But he also criticized the former US president when he deemed it necessary including calling Obama's Libya policy, not very helpful in two thousand eleven more recently, a non, his spoken out against president, Donald Trump's, foreign policy decisions in may announce that he deeply regrets Trump's choice to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and encouraged other signatories to renew their commitments. And though a non did not mention Trump by name in an agency, France press interview. Late last year, many interpreted his comments about the possibility of starting a nuclear war by accident to be in part a dig at the president. Honestly speaking, we are in a mess. Anon- said at the time. Thanks for listening subscribed to the briefing share with a friend so we can build a bigger more inclusive conversation.

"Gutierrez said Mr. Annan was a guiding force for good and the South African president. Serum opposes said Mr. Annan had championed the African calls at the UN. We were food with pride to see an African leader dealing with world problems and finding solutions for them. So we dip our heads to him in great memory of him, and we will remember him for live. But he is left a legacy and legacy of peacemaking in the world. Colleague Jimmy, and Marshall's been talking to Edward Molsem Kofi Annan's chief speechwriter and his director of communications of the UN. And he was asked about his full of bosses softly spoken stone of diplomacy. I think it's true that he was very castle near us kind of fess new hap- soften thought before he spoke and he knew that in his job, you know, Xiaojing at people would not achieve any results. He was quite good at not saying yes in when he didn't want to. And on ho ho the quieter. He went to the mall, you knew that he was not comfortable, and then you unlikely to get anything. I appreciate that it was before your time, but people often point to Kofi Annan's behavior over Rwanda is being a considerable failing at the time that he was head of UN peacekeeping operations. Well, again, I think it was a failure failure of the United Nations. And I would say particularly of its key Member States because when the genocide stops huge and some Belgian peacekeepers were killed by the Hutu extremists. The other western countries Belgium imputed who had peacekeepers that withdrew them and the Security Council went along with that Kofi Annan was desperately I think he rang a by eighteen different governments to try and get more troops, but nobody was willing to send them what they Kofi Annan himself think were his major achievement says UN secretary general. I would say that what he thought was important was to show that the UN was at the service not just of governance, but of the peoples of the world. And he did a lot to lead the battle against HIV AIDS. Particularly getting the pharmacy big pharmaceutical companies to agree to make anti retroviral drugs available in poor countries at Ford -able prices. And I think he did a lot to make people more aware of the danger of genocide and ethnic cleansing war crimes crimes against humanity is and the responsibility which doesn't stop at national frontiers and would multiple with duty and Marshall now to Italy..
