Catholic clergy sexually abused Illinois kids far more often than church acknowledged, state finds
"An investigation found Catholic clergy sexually abused kids in Illinois far more often than the church acknowledged. The attorney general's office in Illinois found 451 Catholic clergy, sexually abused nearly 2000 children in the state over nearly 70 year period. More than four times what the church had reported. Attorney general Kwame Raoul credits the survivors absent their courage and willingness to come forward and discuss their experience, there would be no true investigative report. Raul acknowledged the statute of limitations has expired in many cases, and those abusers will never see justice in a legal sense. The intention is to provide the public with the accountability, public accountability, and a measure of healing to survivors. Who have long suffered in silence. The archbishop in Chicago called abuse repugnant and said the church is cooperating fully with the state's review. I'm Ed Donahue

"Simple way to enter the conversation. That almost feels easy enough that I could imagine doing it. But I say almost an stress almost because there's a lot of emotion involved in that too, right? And I think what makes these conversations so challenging is the potential for conflict and yet that's where the opportunity is to. So in the same way you use the pool analogy, you stand there, you count to ten and you jump in, like, what is the conversational way of doing that? I like to use the metaphor of driving in a car. And so for me, I want to have my higher level processing, be the driver of the car. But the amygdala, the emotions are always going to be in the car. So you can be in the car, but you just can't have your hand on the wheel. You don't make the decisions. I make the decisions. I think about the emotions that I feel as a signal. What is it telling me? And this is where the introspection comes in, because a lot of times we'll assume that the emotions are telling us, hey, don't have this conversation. That's the right answer. You feel this discomfort? I'm telling you, don't do it. Don't do it. Don't do it. But really, what it's often telling us is that you care, this is important and you should be on link. You should be ready for this. Now I look at the emotions as a signal that I should have the conversation. And the reality is that a lot of times the only true way for me to address those emotional challenges and reach a point of peace is if I have the difficult conversation. And it's like they say the best things in life are on the other side of difficult conversations, right? You have to actually have it in order to experience that emotional freedom. Okay, so this is the point in the conversation where I realized something. I was holding back a bit, because I felt I hadn't fully done my homework. Sure, I'd read his book, but there was so much I haven't read yet on race in America. There's so much I didn't know that I don't know or have forgotten. And I just didn't want to say the wrong thing to get things wrong. So I told Kwame and he was prepared for this. A lot of times what we end up doing is we start to put these little benchmarks in place. And we keep on moving the goal lines. Because we're afraid of the conversation, right? So we think to ourselves, okay, well, when I achieve this level of wokeness, then I could have the conversation. Then we find something else, and we say, you know what? Let me get that one. Let me read that book, and then I'll have the conversation. And really what it is, is the amygdala over intellectualizing the challenge. Because really, who's to say what is the appropriate amount of history that we should know before having the conversation. So for you and anybody else listening, just realize that by listening to this podcast, alone, you have more knowledge on how to have difficult conversations about race than the average person. So don't let those things hold you back. I so appreciate you saying that. And you're right. And the thing that I want to continue to try to remind our listeners whenever we have conversations about race, which is all the time in different ways on hello Monday. Is that we all live within a racist system. And there is a tendency to personalize this rather than to understand ourselves as humans within a racist system where we grew up in us, like a seed, like a culture, right? When you over personalize it, the conversation also becomes more difficult. But when you back up and say, these are the tools I was given, and now I want to try to rise to the challenge of doing better and being more present with the people that I spend my time with. Then you have an opportunity. Absolutely. And one of the things I talk about in the book is giving humble disclaimers before starting these conversations too. Because just like you said, hey, I don't feel as though I know enough to contribute in a meaningful way to this conversation. That is how one can start a difficult conversation about race, you could say it seems like there might be something to discuss here. I'm not exactly sure and I need some guidance here and I apologize in advance for anything that I say that may sound offensive. I will probably make mistakes because I still have a lot to learn. But I want to encourage you to feel safe correcting me and letting me know how I can do better. And I think it's really important for us to, again, inject some humility and just be honest about the situation. The conversation still worth having, but we have to also acknowledge where we might not be strong or might not be as well read as we want to be. These disclaimers sound super helpful. This whole framework seems super helpful, but something sticks out about all of Kwame's work to me. There's something unfair about these conversations the way they happen. So much of the work lands on people of color in majority white spaces and LGBTQ people in majority straight spaces. And so I said so to Kwame. The F word. It's always a matter of time before we get to the F word a fair. I love that. That's when conversations become fun. Because I'm with you. It's tough. And I think that one of the things that's been helpful is I'm a chestnut. Did you know that? In 19,000 games on chest dot com? Oh yeah, so I've been keeping this chess piece here all the time. And so whenever I start to feel like emotions bubbling up, like, ah, I don't want to do this and everything. I'm like, Kwame remember, you're a strategist. There's a purpose. Everything life is a game. What game are you playing? You're playing the game of trying to have the biggest impact possible. What's the best move? And I think we live life decision to decision. And the only responsibility we have is to make the best decision possible under the circumstances. And so for me, if I want to create a world that's more just and equitable and fair, then it requires me to make myself uncomfortable. And so I keep this kind of like as an anchor to remind myself that I just have to make the best move possible and sometimes that doesn't feel good in the moment. But if I can make the move, then I'll make the move. But if I'm at a point where I'm so emotionally exhausted that I can't function, then I have to realize that advocacy fatigue is real. And the best thing I could do for the cause is to sit down, take a break, play some chess. And watch TV. You know? Yeah. Yeah, well, there's room for both because our lives are long. Exactly, exactly. So you've now been really up in this material for a long time because that's what it means to write a book. You went into it, hesitantly, where are you now with this material? I've fallen in love with the work that I've done here. I'm really proud of what I've created. It took a lot of work. It took a lot of self exploration as well. I remember my book coach, Azul, Taronis, with my first book finding confidence and conflict. He told me that if you want to write a transformational book, it has to be transformational for you too. And I don't enjoy being vulnerable, but I know that vulnerability is effective when it comes to getting the best out of me and creating true connections with others. So I really appreciate the work that I've created and the reason I do appreciate it and now more than ever is because as I've been sharing it, I've been seeing how well it's been received and how hungry people are for this type of material. And I think at the beginning I didn't fully appreciate the potential positive impact of this work. And

"Wrong way to go. It's adding insult to injury, completely invalidating someone's feelings in the process. That's where Kwame's compassionate curiosity framework comes in. We have to start from the inside out, Jesse. So most likely, the people who are listening to this podcast don't want there to be racism in their organization. I feel like that is a safe assumption. I hope. Okay. And so that is their hope. That's hope can often fuel the confirmation bias for them to say, I hope that there's not racism here. Therefore, that is the conclusion I will start with. And then also that positivity says, listen, I like Jesse. I like the person who I'm talking to. I want them to feel good. And so I don't want them to think that there's racism here. So that's going to be, again, my conclusion. There's not racism here and denying it is going to make this person feel better. And so what we do is we try to explain it away. No, Jesse, listen, I understand how it could come off that way, but trust me, I know those people, they're okay. And listen, let me give some self disclosure here. I'm not perfect at this. And as a leader, I remember one time where there was a microaggression related to gender where I found myself responding in this way. Oh, no, I know those guys. They're okay. They didn't mean it that way. I'm so sorry. I hung up the phone, and then I went and I sat down, ate some cinnamon toast crunch and started watching TV. And then I started to think about my book that I just wrote and I said, oh my gosh, Jesse, I did it too. And so I called my colleague back and I apologize. I said, listen, I misread that. That was wrong. I rectified the situation. And I think it's important to realize that a lot of times, these interactions happen so quickly that you won't even recognize those points of failures. And so you have to be honest enough with yourself and humble enough to come back and have the conversation the right way even if you failed the first time. I love that point that you're making there that our relationships with each other in real time in office settings. They're rich, they're vibrant. They're always moving. And therefore, because we are human, we are always in ways that we are not aware of in danger of hurting each other. And that is, that is just a condition of our humanity. And the opportunity in that condition is the opportunity for repair, to go back as you did, call somebody up and say, hey, I'm sorry, how can I make that right? Is there a way to make that right? The thing is, frankly, in the United States, we're not that great at apologizing. Creating the environment for repair is actually pretty central to strong negotiation. It's a strong conflict resolution, right? Absolutely. And I think it comes down to a couple of things again. I think it's mindset and skill set. The mindset here that's required is humility and the skill set is how to apologize. I don't think there's enough material out there on how to apologize. And that's why I put it in my book, Jesse. And so really one of the highlights here is that a lot of times an effective apology comes down to the distinction between if and that. And so you could say, I'm sorry if you felt bad versus, I'm sorry that you felt bad. And let's break down why, because if you say, I'm sorry, if you felt that way, what we're doing is we're calling into question the validity of their emotions. And we're saying, listen, what I said was completely above board, but if you're so fragile that you felt hurt by that, that's your problem, and I'm sorry. That you are so fragile. That often makes things worse. Yes. No, what do we have to do is we need to fully own it and say, I'm sorry that my words and or actions led to this negative impact for you. And then we need to commit to doing better in the future. That's it. And that second part is actually the more important part. You're right, getting the language down is right. But the repair part is bigger than the apology. It is about peace of mind. It is about that humility that character that you reference, and I would argue that its skills based as well, that you can learn this. But you have to commit to it. Absolutely. And really for me, I agree, that second part is the most important part. Because what's the point of apologizing if we're just going to keep on making the same mistake over and over again? And so I think that's really how you can determine whether or not an apology is sincere by their commitment to do better in the future. And I think for me, I approach all human interaction through the lens of negotiation, and I want to invite the other person into that conversation to actually talk about this because most likely, if I'm the person who has committed this infraction, it's possible that I might unwittingly make this type of mistake again. And so in a lot of ways, I actually need their help to know how to treat them better. Yeah. Well, so let's reverse roles in the interaction that we talked about earlier. Now you are the person who needs to go to your colleague or maybe your manager and say, that joke you made in that meeting, that was inappropriate. I felt bad. How do you ensure that the conditions are safe enough for you to have that conversation in the first place? I don't know if we can ensure that it's safe. But we can ensure that we use the right strategy to put ourselves in the best position to succeed. And so I like simplicity here and just a clear framework that people can put into play. So the one that we'll use here is situation impact invitation. So situation impact invitation. This is the way to start difficult conversations in general. The hardest part of a conversation oftentimes is the beginning. It's like jumping in a cold pool. You just have to jump in and make it as quick and painless as possible. So we start off with the situation. We're going to describe the situation using what I call naked facts. So these are facts that are stripped of all interpretation, all judgment and things like that. So no matter what side of the issue you're on, you can agree that that is, in fact, what occurred. Then the next step would be the impact. What was the impact as it relates to you? So people can't say, no, call me, that's not how you felt. It's kind of weird, because you're not in my brain, right? And so I want to talk about the impact as it relates to myself. And then the last one is invitation. I don't want to ambush people, so I want them to feel as though they have a choice. But the choice isn't, hey, let's not talk about this. The choices between now or later. So we'll say, hey, in that meeting, you said XYZ. And it made me feel uncomfortable because of ABC. And I'd like to have a conversation with you because you're somebody I respect, and we're going to be working together. So I'd love to talk this through to make sure that we can work together at a high level going forward. Just keep it really short and sweet and that probably took about 15 seconds. But the shorter the better. And this is a really smooth and

"The tempting response is everywhere. And I think it's because, again, we're afraid it's awkward. And we don't want it to be a legitimate factor. But I think in a lot of these situations, we need to be willing to actually lean in and consider it as a potential issue. And if it is, let's lean into it and discuss it wholeheartedly amongst the other issues. And if it's not, let's have a discussion to make sure that we thought about it and let people know that we thought about this and then we have decided maybe not in this situation. And when we're having those conversations particularly when they're one on one conversations, I think that the amazing ability of the amygdala to jump in there and immediately cloud the potential that we might have for actually being reasoned in thinking about these conversations is so massive. How do we escalate that when we're working with others? Emotions are clouding the conversation. That's where compassionate curiosity comes into play because it's a framework that you could put into any situation. And I think Jesse, it's important to acknowledge here that if somebody else is having an emotional response, it's very likely that you will have a reciprocal emotional response as well. I think that's something to acknowledge the fact that when we are emotional, we're not thinking at our highest level. It's going to be very tough. Once we see the potential of an emotional response from the other side, we want to acknowledge that immediately. And when it comes to difficult conversations about race or difficult conversations in general, there is an aversion to wrestling with the emotionality of the other side. We don't feel comfortable with it. And so we say, you know what I'm going to do to solve this problem. I'm going to pretend it's not there. Jesse, this might surprise you. That doesn't work. That doesn't work. And so really, it's keeping it as simple as possible. Taking it as an opportunity to empathize with the other side and acknowledge how they're feeling and then give them the space to decompress. So for instance, if somebody comes to you and shares a microaggression that they've experienced and it's upset them and they come to you as an ally, you can say something like this. I can tell that this had a significant impact on you. Can you tell me a little bit more, right? Then give them the space, listen, summarize and say, that makes sense. I can understand why you feel that way. It must be frustrating that blank. And then give them more space. Tell me more. What else? And then, as they start to calm down, then you transition into getting curious with compassion. And this is where your allyship can really start to shine. What can I do to support you in this situation? How can I help you? What do you think we can do to make sure that this type of stuff doesn't happen to you again and maybe not happen to other people as well? And it's just really smooth, but it takes a lot of practice. Kwame just glossed over something that he has become very good at. Since I think the rest of us need more practice, I'm going to spell it out. Kwame is not suggesting that we need to agree with or judge someone else's feelings as correct. He's encouraging us to validate someone else's feelings. He's asking us to empathize without judgment. To say, hey, I see that you're sad. Not, I think you're right to be sad. This level of empathy isn't natural for a lot of us. We have to learn and practice it. That's true for Kwame two. This is something that shocks my friends when I tell them this. When I took a strength finder test and it ranks your strengths from one to 34. Empathy was number 34 for me. I'm not naturally empathetic, but I learned how to become empathetic. It is a skill that can be developed. And so when people say Kwame, I don't feel like doing this. I'm not good at doing this. I'm not a touchy feely emotional person. Okay, cool. I mean, I wasn't good at a lot of things when I first tried. So that's not a good excuse. And if we don't address that emotional component, we are going to struggle to accomplish our goals in this conversation. And it's tough to do when you care about the person and you agree with the person. But Jesse, it's even more difficult to do. When you don't agree with the person and you might find their position to be wholly undesirable, let's go with undesirable here, right? Yeah. And so it's the exact same approach when you disagree with somebody wholeheartedly. I'm going to acknowledge and validate their emotions, but I'm going to separate facts from feelings. So I have to separate the emotional side from the factual side and suspend my agenda in these conversations in order to address the emotional side and then earn my right to have a more logical conversation. You called it suspending your agenda. You also need to manage your own personal emotions. And as he said earlier, when somebody else's emotions kick up yours often due to so how do we do that with grace? With difficulty, Jesse. With difficulty, it's tough. And I want people to understand that is really difficult to do. It's still difficult for me to do. We both have young children and we know that if we can't put the toothpaste back in the tube, right? Once it's out, it's out. And sometimes in these conversations, if you make these types of mistakes, it's really tough to recover. And so slowing down is almost always going to be the right answer. And so what I like to do is slow things down, especially when I want to respond quickly, because what I found is that the faster I want to respond, the more inappropriate the comment. That is such such good advice. One thing that you expertly point out is the best way to be in conversation around a lot of the most difficult aspects of this stuff is to spend most of your time listening by spending most of our time listening. It sets us up to have a better conversation and ultimately to have more control. Yes, when I think about control, I'm not thinking about it in a machiavellian type of manipulative type of way. I'm just thinking about it in terms of taking responsibility for the well-being of this conversation and making sure that I keep the conversation steering in a productive direction. The other added benefit is that you're less likely to make a mistake when you're not talking. So it's a safety mechanism as well. And so I like to steer the conversation by asking questions. And listeners, here's an example. Jesse is very modest, but she's a great negotiator. And you can see it, by the way, she asked questions. In this podcast. So I'm doing the majority of the talking, but Jesse is steering the conversation by asking the questions. This is a really great example of how these conversations can and should go when you're doing a good job of keeping the conversation moving in a productive direction. You ask questions with a compassionate tone and guide the conversation in the right direction. There's another really important aspect to that conversation being productive, Kwame. And that is that we trust each other. And we trust each other enough that we will assume best intentions. So I'll give you an example. I began this interview a little bit on the sloppy side. I fessed up right away. I am tired today. And if we had not begun with a sense of trusting each other and a sense that we both had our best intentions in mind, I could see that you could be put off right away by that. But instead, you hung with me until we found our through way, as it were. Absolutely. How do you even begin to establish a culture in which it's expected that we assume best intentions? I mean, there's a real big difference between saying that and feeling bad. Yeah, well, again, I like to try to delete the dance as much as possible. So I want to show people how I expect them to act through my behavior too. And so that's the way that I'd lead the

"Books. Thanks. Now to the show. Today, we're talking to Kwame Christian, Kwame founded and runs the American negotiation institute. And I've talked about negotiating with him before. Kwame's greatest gift is that he understands how to have difficult conversations. And with this new book, he's putting that gift to particularly good use. The book is called how to have difficult conversations about race. Now race is a tender topic for a lot of people. For me, maybe for you, for Kwame, certainly. He describes himself as a reluctant leader in this area. He practiced civil rights law, early in his career. It burned him out, and he avoided it after that, pretty much entirely. Even after the murder of George Floyd in 2020, he didn't want to lean into it. And then his wife Whitney called him in a bit. She pointed out that Kwame asked people to lean into the hardest conversations regularly. But he wasn't doing it himself. Kwame remembers exactly what she told him. As a black man who is in the negotiation space, which is rare. And somebody who has a background in negotiation and conflict resolution, which is even rarer, you are a leader and your voice is missing here. That resonated deeply. In Kwame started to rethink his approach. I said, listen, I'm going to stay in my lane. I'm going to stay in my zone of genius here. I'm not going to tell people how they should think about race. I'm going to tell them how they can talk about race. I'm going to focus on the communication, the connection, the conflict resolution. And that's been really, really rewarding. And here we are. No matter where you are starting in today's conversation, we're going to break down some tools that will help you to talk more honestly and more effectively about race. Here's Kwame. I'm seeing a lot of fears for anybody who wants to have a difficult conversation about race. So for instance, we're afraid of offending people. We're afraid of that awkwardness, we're afraid of the discomfort that will feel. We're afraid of potentially getting canceled or ostracized or shut down for sharing how we feel. And so all of these fears hold us back. And so I wanted to give people a resource that not only addressed the skill set, but also the mindset as well, because we have to address that emotional component that holds us back, but then we also have to address the fact that there's a massive skills gap when it comes to these conversations for everybody. And so if there's a way that we can approach these conversations in a way that's respectful and constructive and that's what I wanted to provide. I really appreciated the way that you called out the difference between skills and talent here and suggested that this is something that can be learned. Did you always Intuit that? Well, yes and no. I'll say yes because for me, I'm a recovering people pleaser. So it's not natural for me to have these conversations. But also know because I didn't know that naturally I had to discover it. My undergrad degrees in psychology and there's a joke in psychology that people go into psychology to study themselves. In a lot of ways. And so I wanted to overcome social anxiety and those types of fears. And so I discovered how you could, how you can overcome those challenges, and then when I went to law school, I learned how to negotiate. I learned the skill set. And that was really the first time that I fully appreciated the fact that it's a skill, not a talent. Even though I identified as a people pleaser, I could learn how to negotiate how to resolve conflict, how to advocate for myself. And so it was really that realization for me that made me want to take this unique direction in my career because, like I say, the motto at the American negotiation institute is we believe the best things in life are on the other side of difficult conversations. So I want to provide everybody with those skills as well. Kwame has a framework that forms the backbone of his teaching. He calls it compassionate, curiosity. It's helpful whenever you're trying to talk about something that feels hard. This framework is a tool that you could use in any difficult conversation you have, whether at work or at home. So it's three steps. Number one, acknowledge and validate emotions. Number two, get curious with compassion and number three, joint problem solving. And so you could use them interchangeably. It's flexible. So sometimes there's not an emotional issue at the time. So you can get curious with compassion, asking open ended questions with a compassionate tone together information and create some rapport. Then you get to join problem solving where you're working together to solve the problem. But then an emotional issue might come up, and so you know, okay, it's time to acknowledge and validate the emotions. And you can flip this internally for yourself as a tool of introspection and emotional regulation. So you're going to acknowledge and validate your own emotions, get curious with self directed compassion to figure out where that emotionality is coming from. And then with joint problem solving, we're reconciling the differences between your heart and your mind. What would satisfy you emotionally in this situation and then what problem do you need to solve in order to better the situation? So that is beautifully articulated and then you try to put it into practice against the backdrop of a modern life and it gets messy very quickly. And so I actually would love to talk through how you apply that framework to some specific situations. Yes. Let's do it. You know, I'll start with one that you referenced in the book and I loved the exchange, the back and forth. It was actually in your section on compassionate curiosity. And there was the example of, I think it was a manager said to you, let's say you. I think that this person, let's call her Joan Chen, is worthy of being promoted. What do you think? And your first reaction, your gut reaction is like, yeah, they're very good at their job, but I don't think so. Then what? Then how do you apply the framework to figure out what's going on there for yourself before you respond to your colleague? Remember, when we think about the gut reaction, the gut is located in your amygdala. And a lot of times that gut reaction is really just a bias. And so a lot of times, for example, there's a bias against Asian Americans when it comes to leadership positions. That's a challenge that they've faced. And so let's say that manager is trying to do some introspection to figure out where that position came from. So acknowledge and validate the emotion. What is that gut response? I don't think miss Chen would be good for this position. That is the emotion that I'm arriving at. Okay, well, what made you come to that conclusion? Now we're transitioning into getting curious with self directed compassion. She has great work. She does a really good job, so that's not what it is. How does she interact with other people? Well, she interacts really well. Is she respected on the team? Yes, she is. Then how did you come to that conclusion? There's no objective criteria that that validates that conclusion. And so, okay, reconciling the differences between our heart and mind with joint problem solving. What would satisfy me emotionally? I want to be a person who is equitable who's fair. And then what decision do I need to make in this moment? Well, if she checks every single box and I don't have any legitimate reason to not promote her, then the answer is clear I need to make that decision to promote. And so this might seem intellectually laborious. And the first few times it will be. But as you start to get through this process and practice, it'll be a lot faster. As I read through your book, I came to this sort of larger conclusion, which is that the thing is racist a subtext in almost every conversation we have in the office. But many of us, especially those of us with any sort of privilege, mostly for a lot of different reasons, are loath to acknowledge that. Maybe we have our own feelings around that. Maybe we're benefiting from the privilege and we would like to instead just not talk about that. Let's put the conversation someplace else. Where do you see race come into the conversation that people choose to avoid?

And we're back my guest today. Expert negotiator kwami christian. Comey's really smart about positioning requests. So they don't feel like attacks really. In the majority these situations it comes down to their perceptions of liberty and freedom whether or not they have the rights and autonomy to live their life. The way that want to and so in those situations where i don't have any leverage over them what i do is i say listen. You have a choice right if you want to say no you say no but it would be really helpful for me because and this is one of those magic words in persuasion because because my wife is pregnant. She's asked me to be very careful about who. I'm around and how i'm around them. Would you mind wearing a mask. Oh yeah no problem made it a lot easier. Yeah and. I wonder what we can learn from rejection. That makes us better at negotiating. Oh this is great so two things first thing is rejection therapy so when you think about cognitive behavioral therapy they have exposure therapy. You need to expose yourself to the thing that scares you. The most and a lot of people like you said are afraid of rejection and it makes sense. Think about why. It's so important to to fear rejection. Why that's such an important motivating factor for humanity because if you think about it through a lens of evolutionary psychology you go back in the past where we're in our tribes if i'm rejected from my social circle that's death right because i need my people and so we all have. This sense was very sensitive to the fear of rejection hurts and it hurts to the point where studies have demonstrated that..

"There a second because and i think this is particularly true for women and for people of color can really be hard to summon the guts to attach a number two what you want and say it out loud even to yourself in the mirror. Let alone to the person who's going to be doing the deciding. I wonder if you can just talk to that. Second thing is you will protect what you value right. And so before. We even get into these negotiations. We have to assess the level of value that we put on ourselves. What is it that we value. Do i value myself do value my career and sometimes the thing is. We're a little bit insecure. Do i deserve this. Or we're just happy to be there. I see that with a lot of minorities to like listen. I'm doing better than anybody else in my family. I'm just happy to be here. This is good enough. I'm not going to be ungrateful for my position. And so what. I've suggested people do that. They look at themselves almost like their own attorney. So let's think if i were representing myself. How would i handle this conversation or to make it even easier for you. Think about somebody that you love. So for instance my my wife right my my son okay. I'm a little bit afraid or hesitant to go into this conversation. But what if it was whitney. If whitney were here in this position and she wasn't being compensated fairly what would you say on her behalf. Okay now we're getting to understand what the tone should be. Now we're getting to understand how we should articulate that because when we put something that we value in that place than it helps us to articulate what we want a lot more clearly. That's a beautiful way of thinking of it is negotiating anything synonymous with winning any negotiation. It's all about winning but we have to see what winning means so we can win substantively. I can have this conversation. And i can get what i want..

If you have the right co-conspirator no a- back and forth y'all are on the same wavelength and you know exactly what you know. Not necessarily what the other person is thinking but you know what the oldest right And you come up with an idea and they come up with an idea. And you're like that is amazing. And they're like let's build on it and you're just going back and four and so it's It's like What is the term called.

How how the main character conducted himself. How he made friends. I was like this is really A middle grade story. This is a story for a military great audience And i don't think i've ever looked back from that point. Like i wanna write young. I've written young. The belt judge stories written a short stories But every time. I start a project right and i'm sure it's going to be a different age range and like you know. Yeah this is the adult this is. This is absolutely young adult. You know there's you know the little kermit mean you know the little shadowy. Dark mermaid appears beside. You know richard middle grade. It'll be agree. I'm just like oh. God of course has to be middle great. Now there's just something about Both my maturity level and The thing the thing i like to do with is absolutely make fun of adults because adults are the worse. Though i i just think the middle grade is just where it's at for me It's it's a readers Let their first time. Kind of dealing with Longer works of fiction but it is for many In the in the way that the reader when introducing the middle gray john Or age range is able to explore a much wider world fiction with in the book. You have that those same characters able to explore this world that they are now realizing exists outside of their parents in their home and their immediate community. So i think middle greatest is always going to call the great well. That'll bring us to your latest middle grade. You mentioned earlier. The last gate of the emperor. So we'll start talking about that and give me a sense of what this book's about lasted the emperor Is a futuristic A reimagined futuristic ethiopia like setting If the kingdom aksum.

We have called. i'm six myself. I have definitely called players. Not good his pocket. I have made river since two prescott. And as i have said. He's because we have another member of this podcast. Shout trae is a big dak. Prescott is not nothing personal. When are we talking. It's like barbershop talk. Shop people are people are going to say some mean things about players. The problem i in barbershop talk barbershop took. It is but we usually quantify these. Hey this is why we think this person is but but hold on. Let go all right. Why are they saying this about carlberg kuzma for years. Because he was a first round. I haven't i haven't heard it. I i haven't heard. I haven't heard any it but the the i haven't heard any i haven't heard any as far as him as a player haven't heard any of the stuff right but just purely based off what we're talking now at it's somebody who's made a career ofo straight up trash if we're just talking if that's what it is that steven a. And i love stephen. I i used to hate them. But just listen to a more understand. Where and how you know with the answer about a understand now. But if that's what's made him blow up trashing his guy if he's literally been trashing and talking dog stuff about quantum brown the net. That's a whole different type of situation. You know what i mean. And that's something that we can do behind the scenes when we're having actual barbershop talk when we're not on national media went out on radio no one else has people. That's what we do. We'll say look. I don't care about. This person has a player because of x. y. and z. And i just don't believe he can do x. y. and z. That's that's okay. That's gone off because the volcano exploded. I've i've had enough. I've had enough and these two m efforts snickering on the. I'm just i'm going off. He saw that was like. Oh i tolerated this with stephen and i i was i was happy. Going twenty is not saying. I'm a damn thing and you got you to boy. You got you to thank you to that. That aren't necessarily superstars and more superstars snickering and and having for me now matter of fact. Nah i'm i'm not gonna use a the guns references. That's what i was getting ready. I'm spraying water on everybody. Okay man sprinkling water on free. But i really like what low said because at end of the day this guy was number one great. He was a number one overall. Pick for straight from high school. I wanted to do it so he clearly had skill didn't it didn't work out. Yes but why are we talking about him. Twenty years later. And i think the the key here for me is the person i quite most to him if somebody like a ryan leaf because we talk about ryan leaf all the time in sports media. But it's not necessarily that he's trash. You don't hear it that way you really don't is okay. It didn't work out. call him a bust. Whatever call somebody a bust best fine if you wanna coma buses five when you call somebody trash garbage a guy who's number one and then you have someone like matt barnes and stephen jackson hooper's by hoop all day they. They weren't on that level. They just weren't so you can't do that. And if you notice he's not really going in on gilbert arenas no he's not not. He said that uber arenas took money from. He went on on a little bit. He said little bit he loved them. Watch every video he's posted. I've watched them all rights and on. Becky has gone everybody. That has mentioned his name except for basically shannon sharpe. But he's gone on everybody. Let's make has been. He'd been dragging his name for years. So it's not like it's random. I don't want say i'm not saying random. I'm saying random thing bro random. I said that whatever. He has a response where every saint save. What you got to say. 'cause like like you said it's been twenty years and he's finally saying something. Go ahead and do do. I'm speaking on the other side of the spectrum. Because i speaking as you guys had to be involved if you guys are doing your own thing you narrow ballplayers from your life. That's fine but even if if i tweet something about somebody is because they're in the realm of a sports joke or no joke I'm tweeting about it is my platform. If you like it you like it if you don't you don't whatever 'cause people tweet about stuff all the time and if he wants to take offense to that because i'm tweens about him then fine. Whatever you think is my business then find whatever people put. Their nose was business all the time. No i did you mail. He'll into this conversation did you did you your history. Okay i think is in that room. I really china's little sheila. She says that he was going off bro. She saw that he was going off and he was like so. You want the smoke. Do as she got it she got it. I agree with you. May she say anything different. You're saying it's a little different. Because if i come up today so we'll just talk about the nets. The knicks in the hawks. Right my say. I'm interested in this series not interested at all. I can sit on a tweet saying not interested. Don't care who wins. That's different from me. Sane oh these warm garbage. She didn't say that. Chris that's not what she said. Shrimp let me really read the tweet. Because that is not what she said she was basically saying joke about the situation home worth get this whole. Okay that's fine. I have no issue with her saying that. If you're going to tweet something about somebody be ready to receive that small. So that's what she did. Simple having is that people are saying oh man she shouldn't twenty th anniversary. We don't have problem with that either. She shouldn't have been their business. I understand it brown the saying if you have a platform you on twitter. Your instagram facebook. You can tweet whatever the hell you want to. Use your platform okay. As she's twin something about someone who's in the sports realm so as we're not all that off target let me just read one more time when she said kwami brown got me checking the tape to make sure i ain't ever about him if i did. I'm sorry please. Don't talk about my mom. Now it was. It was joke like but the one hundred look. Look you can take an care of your ticket. Is her platform. She can tailor she wants to tweak what she in some grown man business. Yes but i like. I said before this whole thing started i relating this to me because i can see myself doing something like that. This is about me. You guys might take a day man as a joke. Aibo imus about you. Before in the past if i did. I'm sorry i'll be in their business but it isn't my platform and guess what by doing all the smoke then you get because it because once again the volcano the volcano is now being stingy with nothing.

Like yeah i got you very well set low and the final game that. We're going to discuss the lakers and suns in the western conference. This suns take game one chris. Paul play pretty good. Lebron james lebron james. I still think the lakers are gonna take this series and six or seven. Even though the sons devon booker and chris paul they played really good. Give him brooker. Played really really good and i just talked about stars making a name for themselves in the playoffs. This opportunity for devon booker to make a name for himself. Because this game right here. If you didn't who brooker was you found out in his game who booker was 'cause he played absolutely great thirty. Four points eight assists. So i look for dinner brooklyn to continue to do this. And hey man if he continued to do that with the communist and chris paul this might be even higher seed. Most people are picking the lakers upsetting making. But i still think the league's witnesses six or seven so you're gonna say what's chess are you. Picking the lakers lakers okay. Man just like everybody else is bigger than legacy bill. Something we're picking. I'm just trying to get them credit for what they're doing very young team. Coming up. devon booker did not get a lot of respect in the game because to him as a star but this is a chance for him to make a name for himself in the players. Don't do me. Chris devon booker clearly star. Nba there's no doubt about that. He proved that in the bubble last year. And really what he's been doing since he's been with the sons. The lakers dropped game one. What's new we all know. Lebron james uses game. One is a field out game. It the lakers job game. do then. i'm and that don't see that happening. I've been the legs gonna take this series and five or six games. The suns played incredible. And i gotta say this has been so good to see the fans in the stadium when a three pointers dropped in the crowd is going wild man not not manufactured noise either actual crowded off watching that suns game in here in the way. The crowd going on in the phoenix fans deserve. That i've been. I've watched games in that arena. The rena is beautiful is old be real is old but it is. It is a nice arena. Eneg there some good loyal fans men. The phoenix fans are loyal. So it was good to see them watch. Their basketball team. Had that type of game on abc. Send offer for them because that's the last time they're going to cheer them. Winning a game in zero. Chris mueller man so chris. Paul didn't have very good game. And you don't want that. I mean i'm looking at his stat line right there i mean. He's only had eight assists but devon booker really took over the game. I think it'd be really really interesting to see how far the sons able to push the lakers. If i'm the phoenix suns. I'm their head coach. I'm saying look we're putting we're being physical with bron. James and anthony. Day was very physical with these guys. There are superstars will be physical. We're gonna make them work for everything as they're just coming off injuries. I'm to i'm going to take the suns in this series because i think it'll be chess chelsea. I'm gonna take the some of the series just. Because i i'd like to see them. Continue to produce in the playoff. I'd see how far this teams they will go out. So i'm going to take the sons. The la lakers champs. You gotta beat the champ. The it is what it is. Both guys anthony davis lebron james. They're healthy on the game contributions from the bench and from the the rest of the row player contribution. So naturally that's going to be everyone's pick. I won't be upset or i to be taken aback at the lakers went right. But i'm going to go with the sons here. Just because i wanna see the what the number two seed you know. Maintain what they are and make a run in the playoffs. I'm taking all so low. Taking this need a drug test we need to drug as low as saying in the first round not one but both. La teams are to be out. I just want the clippers lakers out. It's possible and limited to and some things on the show and guess what it has happened. He has happened. So i'm saying much as i am backing down baby back down. Let chris intimidates you talk about you know. Hey tim nate you so you got two sons mean. Chris got the lakers real quick. We're gonna talk about the hawks in next. We're recording during. The game is halftime right now. Hawks are to take the knicks. I'm gonna keep this magic carpet ride going with the knicks. They're going to win this series and move onto the next round. Who you got chris. Oh man this is this great series so you have the new york knickerbockers versus the atlanta hawks. This is amazing. This is one of those series that you waited all eighty two games plus seventy this rando trae young. You have these two teams going back and forth. But i don't care one game this series zero to me zero to me because nothing in the grand scheme of things but i do like what time with new york and i'm happy for trae young. I really am have you guys. But i'm not watching this. Who you taking their. If you're not gonna watch it. I'll take care i'll go with. The knicks got a corn corn flow.

Like i've mentioned in the good the bad ugly. They are back in the playoffs. Atlanta to is in the playoffs as well. Too young teams are going at it is going to be a very entertaining series because we have two of these teams battling out. This might be low key. The most one the more entertaining series in the whole of the playoffs. Yes really oakley yes. A fourth and fifth seagoing netted. I do think near on win this series in maybe six or seven so i think they're to pass the next round on those guys do this top stop 'cause atlanta atlanta fans near turned off by you right now this all right so the jazz and the grizzlies over in the western conference one-seat versus the a seed idea jazz going to take care of the grizzlies. Okay care by says it's going to be four or five games. John mirant if he does go super san. It won't matter. The jazz are built for the series. They are going to demolish the grizzlies in my opinion.

Why we must confront hard historical truths
"Not that long ago I received an invitation to spend a few days at the historic. Of James Madison. James Madison of course was the fourth president of the United States, the father of the constitution, the architect of the bill of rights and as a historian I was really excited. To go to this historic site because I understand and appreciate the power of place. Now, Madison called his estate monpellier and mom Pelia is absolutely beautiful is several thousand acres. Rolling Hills farmland forest with absolutely breathtaking views of the blue. Ridge. Mountains but it's a haunting beauty. because. Montpellier was also a slave labor camp. You see James Madison slave more than one hundred people over the course of his lifetime. And he never a single soul, not even upon his death. The centerpiece of Montpellier is Madison's matching. This is where James Madison grew up. This is where he returned to after his presidency. This is where he eventually died and the centerpiece of Madison's mansion is his library this room on the second floor where Madison conceived and conceptualized the bill of rights when I visited for the first time, the director of Education Christian coats. Cool. Why do took me almost immediately to the library. And it was amazing being able to stand in this place where such an important moment in. American history happened. But then after a little while they're Christian actually took me downstairs to the sellers of the. Mansion. Now in the sellers of the mansion, that's where the enslaved African Americans who manage the House spent most of their time. It's also where they were installing a new exhibition on slavery in America. and. While we were there Christian instructed me to do something I thought it was a little bit strange. He told me to take my hand and place it on the brick walls of the seller and slide it along until I felt these impressions or ridges in the face of the brick. Now Look I was going to be staying on site on his former slave plantation for a couple of days. So I wasn't trying to upset any white people. Because when this was over, I want make sure that I could get out. But as I'm actually sliding my hand along the seller war, I couldn't help but think about my daughters and my youngest one in particular who was only about two or three years old at the time because every time she hot out of our car, she would take her hand and slide it along the outside, which is absolutely disgusting and then. And if I couldn't get to her in time, she would take her fingers and pop them in the mouth which drive. Absolutely crazy. So this is what I'm thinking about what I'm supposed to be a historian. But then, but then I actually do feel these impressions in the brick I feel these ridges in the brick and it takes a second to realize what they are, what they are are tiny handprints. Because all the bricks at James Madison's estate were made by the children that he enslaved. And that's when it hit me. That The library in which. James Madison conceived and conceptualizes the bill of rights rests on a foundation of bricks. Made by the children that he enslaved. And? This. Is. Hard. History. It's hard history because it's difficult to imagine the kind of inhumanity. That leads one to enslave children to make bricks. Your comfort and convenience is hard history because it's hard to talk about the violence of slavery. The beatings, the whippings, the kidnappings, the forced family separations is hard history because it's hard to teach white supremacy. Which is the ideology that justified slavery. And so rather than confront hard history. We tend to avoid it. Now sometimes that means just. Stuff up. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that states rights was the primary cause of the civil war. That would actually come as a surprise. So the people who fought in the civil war. Sometimes. We try to rationalize hard history. When people visit Montpellier and by people in this instance, white people. When they visit mom appeal your and learn about Madison slaving people. They often ask. But wasn't he a good master? A good master. There is no such thing as a good master. There is only worse and worse her. And sometimes. We just pretend the past didn't happen. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say it's hard to imagine slavery existing outside of the plantation south no, it ain't. Slavery existed in every American colony slavery existed in my home state of New York for fifty years after the American revolution. Why do we do this? Why do we avoid confronting hard history? Literary performer and Educator Reggie. Gibson had the truth of it when he said that our problem as Americans. Is We actually hate history. What we love Is No style.

"Everybody around here today, we have a special guests on the program Jim Cramer. Needs no introduction Jim thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us today and talk a little bit about desolate. I think Tesla's the most important stock in the market because it's created a tremendous amount fascination which you know why like it's been hard to find people who understand Tesla like you like you do in other words when I say that mean people understand Tesla, the car tesla the Stock Tesla, the myth test, the reality, which is why it's so exciting to speak with you because frankly anything Tesla I regard as the most exciting thing that's happening in the market and I'm with the guy. I definitely agree. So I'd love to get your thoughts because I think you're you're thinking on Tesla has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of years I know a few years back to your more mixon. You've called it a cult stock gotten into some interaction with Ilan on twitter over the last I think probably eighteen to twelve months. You've you've definitely become a lot more bullish, which was great. Timing has the stock has reflected that as well. So I just love to hear sort of the evolution of thought process on tussle over the last couple of years. Great. Okay. When he came out I thought it was too hot. And I. I said people should sell it now I know that I had subsequent met. You must get a dinner party. And he belittled me he. Space said that if tried question, his analysis of the wall have giant solar field in Colorado we're all other energy's GonNa be provided from five years announcement five years I've seen it yet. He did pronounced me as a hologram basically. Didn't even exist. I thought it was one of the greatest put downs ever except I wish it weren't addressed. Thank. Eh former. Mathematicians Twenty, seven percent. But here's what's happened to me. I looked at his a stock. I didn't look at it. And I think that what happened is basically a a religious could it was a religious? Conversion. I went out to California my daughter had just driven. From Oregon she was living to Los Angeles. And she talked about charging talks about it was about the flatulence button instead you know data been driving. For twelve years. I never cared what a job. It's never been important. She had a beat up two, thousand, eight A. Ford fiesta she'd been driving she wasn't a corporate, but Tesla made her into Cooper's. So then I went out to sea venture mine one executive is so come bally's a company and another former CFO and they had all tesla's. and. My wife who is a complete corpus I mean a nut car person just loves it her favorite everything's ninety, four range over that. She has she said this is it a she drove it and she said this is it. Now we have not bought one yet because she's we're going. To be able to say listen Jim, you should buy because you live in some new. Jersey accuses go around car but when I was driving with the person who was retired was the CFO as you know what my daughter loves it, my wife loves it. It's so cool but they don't have the financials did naked so that I can recommend it to sixty. And he looked at me turn Amigos. GM naked race two billion dollars. Like. Religious, conversion. The conversion was right there because I knew rob. At, the balance sheet was not questioned. Admin. Panel table ever since we caught a lot of points I, continue to recommend it. I should have realized along the way that when Jay Leno told me Jim. Is the greatest car coming around one fifty. I should've just changed my mind but I hadn't been in the car rob other than. My friend, kwame picked me up to a little bit. And when you have a person who's never driven a car saying, this is like the greatest thing ever doesn't think of as a car and then you have the coordinate nut Lisa who says, this is the greatest thing ever and you have a CFO's very rigorous who said look they can raise the money I said, what am I doing? Why am I fighting the truth? Why am I fighting progress? So rob I surrendered and the best qualified made this year.

another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Bat Soup, Anyone? How Viruses Transfer From Animals To Humans - Yahoo News
"Let's get back to the interview. Fresh air's Dave Davies recorded yesterday with science writer. David common about the new Corona Rona virus epidemic which broke out in Wuhan China. Kwame ince's the corona virus is just the latest example of how were increasingly contracting dangerous. Viral infections since from animals in his book spillover published in Twenty twelve kwame attractive viruses spilled over from animals to infect humans with HIV West S. Nile fever anthrax. Bola and another from the corona virus family SARS severe acute respiratory syndrome which also emerged in China China. You know you're right. That as scientists tried to track down the source of the SARS virus back in two thousand three and four. They focused on this practice in southern China of eating and in some cases raising wild animals. Not kind of things that you typically think of as food or or where we don't want to just explain this trend and how it figured you're into this yes There is a vogue. There has been a vogue for eating wildlife wild animals when I was in Southern China researching searching the book only briefly. I got to see some of these markets. Where all form of wild animal were on sale A lot of the trade by the time I got there had gone underground because it was suppressed after the SARS outbreak but then it gradually came back and it had been allowed to continue in you again and proliferate win this new virus began but if you go into a live market and you see cages containing bats stacked upon cages containing porcupines stacked upon cages containing palm civics stacked upon cages containing chickens and hygiene is not great and and the animals are defecating on one. Another it's just a natural mixing bowl situation for viruses. It's very very dangerous situation and and one of the things that it allows. Dave is something that we haven't mentioned. I think so far and that is the occurrence of of amplifying hosts hosts that are not the reservoir host the permanent hiding ground of a new virus but represent intermediates between the reservoir of our host and the human population for instance those horses in Australia. From the point of view of a horse they were ultimate hosts and they were being killed by this virus but from the human point of view they were amplifier hosts the virus got into them it multiplied abundantly it caused them to froth and Chauque and bleed through their nostrils veterinarians and trainers. Were trying to take care of them. They amplified the virus. So that One trainer in one stable form and got very sick from that virus in the case of this new corona virus. One of the questions is was there. An amplifier host in that wet market where these cages are stacked are called wet markets white wire called wet markets. Well assume they're called wet markets because the animals are alive alive rather than butchered and in dead and refrigerated They're also wet. Because there's there's water flowing everywhere. They usually have seafood as well as as wild mammals and birds As I said hygiene isn't great. Animals are being butchered on plywood. Boards blood is flowing down into the gutters in the water and there is just a great Liquidity Mix in these markets at at their worst now when scientists were trying to track down the origin of the SARS virus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome which was associated with the virus in in the early two thousands. They eventually focused focused on something called the civic cat What is that? That's right the civic cat is not really a cat. It's more accurately called the palm palm civic the civic type of mammal that belongs to the to the family of Mongooses But it's a it's a medium sized animal and and it is both captured from the wild for food and captive bred and raised for food And it was the first big eggs suspect of In the SARS outbreak It was found that some of the people who got sick very early on had eaten a butchered civic and so in the civic head though the the antibody for this this virus right and they and they tested him civics and they found they found evidence of the virus. They found antibodies. Antibodies or fragments of DNA A. R. N. A.. In these civics suggesting that they had been infected with the virus and That didn't prove they were the reservoir host but it made them the number one suspect until a couple of Chinese scientists did further work and they established that in fact virus was not living permanently in the civic population in the wild or in captivity. It was it had a different reservoir host it was living in bats and it had passed presumably market somewhere it had passed from a bat into one or more sits and they became the amplifier host. Right and the the Chinese government I think decreed that all sits in captivity would be slaughtered. Right that's right. Thousands of sits in captivity were butchered an an electric electrocuted and and smothered and drowned In this I panicked blind reaction in China to the SARS outbreak. Now when you were looking at you actually went to China with and spent some time in the field with people who were investigating this right. Tell us tell us about that experience. I I went. I went with a fellow named Alexi. Kamara was working as a researcher for a group. That's called ECO health alliance based in New York A group of disease scientists who study see these emerging viruses these emerging pathogens in animals around the world. They generally have cross training in Virology Veterinary Medicine Ecology combinations nations of skills so Alexi was one of them Alexi and a number of Chinese colleagues and I flew to a city called Gua Lynn In the province of Guangdong southern China and we went out climbing into into caves that caves in the karst mountains the limestone stone mountains and hills outside of the city of Gwynn Looking to trap Various different kinds of small bats insectivores bats not giant fruit bats Small bats at lived in these caves including Horseshoe bats which is a particular group of bats so that Alexi and his colleagues could draw draw blood samples and test those for Looking for the SAR SARS virus that point or or any other virus that suspect unit. Just describe a little bit of what what it felt like to be trapping bats and these caves well. It was a little bit claustrophobic. It's not for everybody. Had Castle Castro. We climbed through. We climbed on our bellies through a very low hole to get into one of these caves. We had we had to squirm down and then and up through this whole to get into the cave and then the cave opened out and Alexi and his Chinese colleagues had essentially pillowcases and butterfly nets. And that's how we caught these bats. The Bat started flying around and they would catch them in butterfly nets and they were wearing gloves and and they would untangle a bat from a butterfly net and then Drop it into one of these cloth bags that were like pillowcases. And in this case as I recall they they would tire tied the knot often then handed to me and I would go over and and hanging on sort of a clothesline. So that the bad dangle and we were doing this I don't know if we were in there for a couple of hours oddly enough. We were not wearing masks of any sort we were not wearing with the called. Personal Protective Equipment has met suits or anything and and described this in the book. I asked Alexi. Why the hell
