How monkeys played an instrumental role in the development of polio vaccines

"In the nineteen forties. America was under a constant threat from polio. A disease that had a then unknown cause and devastating effects especially in children. It spread quickly through unclean water and unwashed hands leading to symptoms like nausea fatigue. Fever and a stiffening of the body summers especially saw surges infections particularly around swimming holes leading to post polio paralysis and in some cases death on average thirty five thousand people were disabled each year. According to the centers for disease control and prevention president franklin delano roosevelt was among the most notable people to get the condition putting a face to a still uncertain disease. A vaccine was desperately needed as scientists learned about the transmission process including the fact that anyone could be a carrier in the next few years rival scientists jonas and albert sabin worked with teams in their labs on two completely different vaccines. Sabin worked on an oral vaccine. While sulk created an injectable vaccine that using a kill version of polio in the book polio and american story. David m ocean ski writes about the urgency of work. During the time quote. I talk there was reason to hurry the year. Nineteen fifty two was the worst polio year. On record with more than fifty seven thousand cases nationwide the headlines screamed of plague season and polio time. Twenty one thousand victims suffered permanent paralysis and about three thousand died from the very beginning of the polio epidemic. Monkeys were considered to be essential for research before human trials could take place becoming the unsung heroes of the fight to defeat the disease was through animal research that scientists i discovered that there were three strains of the deadly disease. The monkeys were purchased at a high cost from india and the philippines and shipped to the united states. Many died in transit so the national foundation for infantile paralysis now known as the march of dimes began overseeing their import in nineteen forty nine. A foundation established a special facility known as ot farms and rural south carolina to process the monkeys arriving from abroad oak tree farms operated in the picnic colony a beaufort county in coastal south carolina. Originally called the prichard bill primate center. The forty acre or sixteen hectare tract of land along. The river was called by local newspapers. The ellis island for thousands of monkeys from india naturalist john. Hamlet had the job of finding a space for the primate center. That was both connected to deep water ports and airports but also remote enough for neighbors the area he chose closely approximated the natural habitats of the monkeys with its abundance of shady long leaf pines and a mild climate. The monkeys were originally brought into savannah. Georgia one of the region's biggest ports and taken by truck the thirty odd miles or fifty some kilometers to the farm. When air travel became more popular they were flown by a london and new york before travelling by train to the low country. Once they arrived at the farm veterinarians treated the two thousand or so recess and sign a mogus monkeys before clearing them for transport to research facilities around the country. The monkeys spent twenty one days. Getting acclimated and eating a special diet was scientists carefully monitoring their status many went to sell nukes facility in pittsburg and sabin in ann arbor where they were given vaccines to test the vaccine. Strength against the three strains of poliovirus a few locals were aware of the research that was going on at the farm. Despite rumors of people encountering the animals we were unable to discover any opposition to the research facility perhaps because it was not well known and also because opposition to using animals and testing was not very common at the time in the united states. The movement against animal testing didn't pick up steam until around nineteen eighty in any case. The farms purpose wasn't permanent. Once sox polio vaccine was deemed a success and released to the public in nineteen fifty-five the work of qatif arms was no longer necessary and the facility closed in nineteen fifty-nine saban's oral vaccine came into use in nineteen sixty one the foundation that had established the facility. Its attention to reducing premature births. The monkeys found new homes and labs across the country. According to a former employee named louise crawford things at the farm were left just as they were including the monkey cages. A caretaker kept the grass and plant life at bay. The lab was locked up ready for someone new to take on the important task of preparing monkeys for research but that day never came in nineteen eighty the land and its contents were sold to development group. The lab equipment was donated to a local school science department while a farmer claimed the former monkey cages for his own animals. Today acreage along. The river is mostly residential and privately owned thanks to south and saban's vaccines polio cases of plummeted from three hundred and fifty thousand nine.

MK Yifat Shasha-Biton, first Likud lawmaker to defect to New Hope

"First we have a matter that we're following with alert interest. Great concern is part of an occasional series. We call the premise. Podcast ponders the politics of pentameter and the use of the bard to advance a canard last week. The chair of the knesset corona virus committee. He fought shasha beaten announced that she was leaving the likud to join the new right-wing. Hope party where she would become. Don't sars number to an announcement that right away added five seats to the tally. New hope was showing in early polls. Shasha beaten is a popular politician. Mostly because as the head of the corona committee she overturned government decisions to close pools and gyms and stores in schools and even though her decisions were themselves overturned right back again by the government people came to see her as a straight shooter and someone fighting for the people trying to get to work and pay their bills and maybe grab a little exercise if they can. And who doesn't like a truth to power rebel. Also most everything about josh abi tone is wonderful. She grew up in the development town of kiryat shmona the daughter of a nurse from morocco and moshe feed a guy born in iraq who built up a bus company. She had a phd before she was thirty was deputy mayor of kyoto before he was thirty five and was a college vice president forty. It's partly because shasha tone has so much going on that folks and the likud were furious mad when she announced that she was switching parties and they insisted that she resigned right away. Shasha beaten refused on the grounds that she had been elected in this term and she would serve out. There are practical issues in play each sitting. Mk gets government allocated campaign funds when they run for the successive knesset. So if on stays and she'll have one point seven million shekels to use for new hopes campaign but if she quits now she'll be replaced and some other likud member. We'll get that cash lee cooed transportation minister miri regev tweeted quote. You've thought shasha beaten if you have a drop of integrity left resign. Immediately from connecticut and return the mandate to the national camp which you took for a ride for your own benefit a disgrace and when shasha baton refused the likud petitions something called the knesset house committee basically a rules and procedures committee to declare shasha beaten a quote unquote deserter which status would allow them to strip her of her likud campaign funding at the very least anyway. The committee met a few days ago. And because by then blue and was on the outs with the likud they supported chechen tone and she remains in the knesset with her one point seven million shekels in election funding which is when this happened. Uzi they on a likud. Backbencher angry by the outcome of the committee meeting convinced that chechen beaten had not gotten the come up and she deserves asked to be recognized by the chair leaned into the microphone and said quote. I would like to give some free literary advice to get on the of shasha zones new party that it was for matters such as these that shakespeare wrote in fellow i believe and then diane went onto quote not on alternate translation. I think of rabbani ios warning at the end of act one in fellow look to her more if thou has is to see. She has deceived her father. And may the shot a mile invoked up via gumbo which couplet was met by pandemonium in the committee with shasha be tone saying the volume clement. Actually came on the la. I have heard low things. But i must say that. I have never heard things as low as this. At this point mikhail cutler launch a religious blue and white. Mk screened uzi. Why are you referring to shakespeare. Why not refer to the woman who strays and you'll at least be using our own sources. The woman who strays as a reference to the book of numbers by bar chapter five verses twelve through sixteen about what to do with a wife who acts on faithfully to which topic an entire track date of the tomlin. My second sota is devoted later. Uzi dayan said quote. Someone wrote me and said on your life man. What a sexist remark. if that's how it was perceived. I really apologize and quote. And i know what you're thinking. That's a lousy apology. If that's how it was perceived blah blah blah blah blah. But i'd like to think the best of who was married to my favorite zoologist environmentalists tamar. Diane i adore her and she's lately been. The person who by force of character and charm willed into existence. The amazing new natural history museum at tel aviv university which is among other things. A brilliant polemic for sustainability and there ain't no one more feminists then tomorrow diane uzi on also mostly diane's nephew and yours on geffen's cousin so there's that he thought shasha zone for her part. Classically accepted the apology. And the matter seem to be over but all week. I've been thinking that there was an opportunity. Missed here and i can't get it out of my mind. Would it have hurt chubby tone to respond rather than with. I have never heard things as low as this. By saying with catherine from the taming of the shrew my tongue will tell the anger of my heart or else my heart concealing it will break. Would it have hurt. Shasha beaten to insist with don john and much ado about nothing. Let me be that. I am and seek not to alter me. Would it have hurt. Shasha be tone to say with polonius in hamlet this above all to be true and it must follow as the night the day thou cancer not be false to any man. Am i asking too much from shasha tone. I think not because truly. Now is the winter of our discontent. Elections are nine but a week and a day after the ides of march. But i'll stop. I'll stop because who knows better than me. That truly brevity is the soul of wit and that this is a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing. This is how safe. Because i am that idiot today.

"little hamlets" Discussed on KTRH

"And gsg of open the books dot com You were making a comparison. Since some folks probably just joined us. Can you start over at the beginning of that, please? So Scarsdale, New York is the richest place on the entire East Coast, and it stands to reap from Nancy Pelosi's Heroes Act. They were allocated nearly $9 million. And this is this is the hometown of Beyonce and Jay Z. They don't need a bailout. But if you take the bailout dollars allocated to the localities and the state of New York it's $67 billion. Now, let's take that up against the state of Florida at every level localities and state government in Florida and Florida's not asking for a bailout. They're in for 40 billion. Florida has more people than the state of New York. They're in for 67 billion. It's outrageous. You know? It is staggering that things like this happen, But it shouldn't be surprising because the residents of those communities have Nancy Pelosi on speed dial. For all the talk about places like L. A That's not where the big mega donors are. That's not where the parties are. That's not where the French Laundry restaurant is. That's not where all of Hollywood gets together to raise millions of dollars for Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden and Kamila Harris and the like These little Hamlets like this These little rich on clubs are are this the playpen of the wealthy and Nancy Pelosi is funding this all in the name of helping the little people and you know what? I don't even mind her helping her biggest donors. I just want the media to tell the story that it took you and open the books dot com to tell Well, Michael when you make a great point, and you made the point earlier in the monologue to the section that Nancy Pelosi takes care of the home turf, and she certainly does so tucked inside her quote Unquote Heroes Act is $1.8 billion for the City and Tony of San Francisco. Look, most people don't know that the same geographical footprint of San Francisco is a city, but it's also a county Nancy Pelosi wrote $1.3 billion in for the city of San Francisco and then over the same geographic area for the county. There's a half billion dollars of quote unquote coronavirus bailout built in for the county of San Francisco. All told $1.8 billion of your money into San Francisco. We've seen case after case and and I don't know how people come down on it, But I know there's been a lot written in Houston about Lakewood Church, a big mega church here. Receiving $4.4 million, I think was the number and I think that surprised. A lot of people are very wealthy church when you have these big bailouts. A lot of people are going to apply. And when the when the desire is to get the money out quickly, as opposed to the S B, a small business administration, which drags you on forever, supposedly in the process of vetting. Then the answer is going to be if somebody applies. Most of them were going to get it and a lot of people should not have applied and shouldn't have been paid right. Well, I want you to know that it open the books. Calm on that paycheck Protection program. We could have qualified for up to $300,000 of this coronavirus bailout. But here's the deal, Michael, We're a public charity. We don't take get text. We don't take text their money. We don't take government money were the watchdogs. We took zero. We carried the freight ourselves with our donor base. Look, we found that Kanye West, who claims to be a billionaire for his sneaker company, they took up to $5 million Robert Redford for his non profit at the Sundance Institute. They took between two and $5 million. Francis Ford Coppola for his wine companies took upto 5 to $10 million of coronavirus bailout. These are people that can pay their own way. Stop taking taxpayer money to fund your own enterprise. But isn't this really just a function of in desperate times? The government does these things to make everybody happy and what you really do is you allow the person who's first to the trough. And least needs it to suck up. They got the lawyers. They got the accountants..

Canon EOS RP, The Affordable Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

"So if i put this camera in your hands this one that i'm holding right now with the twenty four to five and i told you it was full frame. I told you it was new. And i asked you to guess how much it costs. I'm thinking you would probably say more than one thousand two hundred ninety nine dollars. I know i would because again a lot of spec for that relatively humble price tag now. Thirteen hundred dollars is not chump. Change for sure. But we're talking about full frame with an image stabilize land so if this were a poker game the anti would be a thousand dollars right. You just the play and so if you're coming in thirteen hundred dollars you have a winning hand like this camera. You're probably sitting pretty already. What i'd like to do is start out talking about some of the features because it has some good ones and then talk about a few the disappointments because there were compromises that had to be made to keep the price where it was and really comes down to a matter. Are those compromises. Something that you can live with or would you rather spend more and get a different camera. That's for you to decide. I do want to frame this camera by saying that. It's really a triple threat. First of all it's a good stills camera raw files in the j. pigs are quite good and i was very pleased with jay pigs out of this camera. The second thing is it's a solid movie camera really as in a lot of the features a lot of physical features really lend themselves to this being a good movie camera. The articulated lcd. For example and then the third thing is that it is compatible with canon's webcam software video conferencing and the software works on both mac and windows platforms in the software has just come into full release. It's out of beta now. And if you look at the specs for the software for both mac and windows. It's compatible with a lot of cameras and is compatible with a lot of different platforms for videoconferencing. It looks really good. I tested it with the. Rpd in the r. p. works great with the video conferencing software. The webcam software. So there's that as well so in terms of a camera for modern times especially at this price tag. I think it checks of boxes so let's take a look at some of the features here some of the highlight features. The first one. I want to mention is that it has a nice twenty six megapixel full frame cmos sensor with the digital age processor. Twenty six megapixels. For most of us i think is a sweet spot Shirts great sometimes having more megapixels but you know this resolution is six thousand two hundred forty by four thousand one hundred sixty that. That is a nice framed work. With right you have room the crop. You can make big prince if you want and the file sizes are manageable. So i i really liked the the six megapixel choice for this camera. I think it's a good one. And the iso. The native iso range goes from one hundred to forty thousand. And tell you the truth. I didn't really think about when. I was shooting with his camera. I just really didn't. I knew it could hamlet now when i looked at the pictures in light room afterwards. I go that was that iso eight thousand that was that iso twelve thousand or you know whatever it happened to be but the images look good and you know i would only look at the isos just because i was curious because i was doing this review. Not because of Image quality so one of the first things out say is a plus for this camera that if you do wanna shoot high. Iso and you don't want to spend a lot of money for camera that can do that. This is one to consider because it does the higher. Iso's quite well all right. Let's take a look at framing sean. In viewing the shots so you have an integrated two point three six million dot electronic viewfinder and then on the back you have a one million dot lcd with that. Very angled design. This is the first thing that we start to see. That really lends itself towards movie making a cannon does these lcd's articulating lcd very well.

An Interview with Corporate Anthropologist Andi Simon

"Welcome back I've got Andy Simon, online Andy, how are you? I'm just wonderful. How are you Michael I am awesome. I'm vertical. That's always a good way to be a especially during times of pandemics and whatnot. So that looking forward to this interview for a bit of time now. So let's let's dive in. So tell the audience a little bit about yourself in in the. Work that you're doing. So my name is Andy Simon I'm a corporate anthropologist, a doctorate, and I am an expert in helping organizations and the people inside them change and I've had a background in both academics, and in business I was vp of a bank and S who've another bank can in healthcare during change. But what I learned to said people humans eight to change. And if nothing else a little anthropology might help them step back and see things through a fresh lens an essay due. You'd be amazed how their brain goes from fighting and resisting the changes to embracing them and saying Oh that's right here. So I would say, the way forward is all around you. If only you can see it and our job has been to help people do just that. So I'm an author and award winning author of a book called on the brink of fresh lens to take your business to new heights, and I'm a podcast like yourself and I totally enjoy sharing on podcast video and audio how people can help us change and humans really do hate to change they love the idea, but they hate to do it. So that's who I am. Changes a dirty word to a lot of people. I. See it all the time when I advise people to and I even use the word adjustment I don't even bring in the word change because they hear that word they automatically just tense up and you make some minor adjustments here and there and like okay I can do that and. I'm with you on that. It's so many people are afraid of because they think it's this big job in for some people it might be it might be really transformational for them to go through the work because they have to look within and sometimes people are afraid to look within because. You know we're our own worst enemies in many ways, and especially now during this pandemic, where we do have an opportunity to make some adjustments or changes in our lives that make us better off once we get to the next normal. So many people feel paralyzed and they don't want to take the necessary steps that they need to do in order to get to the goals and the things that they want in life. You know it's not personal. The brain hates it because that's how we. Ourselves to survive and our cultures and the stories we share our really our conversations are our reality. The way the brain works is it takes data informs a story about it, and once you have that story, you think that's reality. It's just a perception of it and you're always a hero in that story. So you only see the things that a firm believe to be true and the line I liked to say is the only truth is there's no truth but once you have that wonderful perception of reality, your brain is very happy. Keeping it everything around you has changed and it's no longer often, and so now the question is, how do I get you to change your story and how do you visualize a new or a new business and really come to grips with the changes that are taking place? I often tell my clients think if this is a play, you really know hamlet very well the tomorrow we have to play, Macbeth what would you do? You find the script or you'd write the script and then you begin to rehearse the script and then you'd have. A director to help you figure out where to stand on stage but we're trying to do that today in a moment you know used to say, if you want to change have a crisis or create one little I know cove it was going to give me my crisis and I tell people don't waste the crisis I have clients who have been trying to do something for three years and all of a sudden. I can do I wanted to go after that market and I can't tell you how easy it is now because everybody. Is unsettled and unsure and all the certainty that we want to protect ourselves is gone and so in uncertainty you know don't waste a crisis and so as we help companies change to your point, they do resist until they realized maybe this is a crisis that you have to address. Now, the question is, what's the new script? How do I play it and I appreciate that humans resist because it's scary new fell we'll have my job. How do I do this my business grow all the uncertainties but yesterday is tomorrow and we are futurists. Are podcasts was ranked in the top twenty futurist podcasts but humans are futures. We have to see you tomorrow to lift today, and that's what we begin to help them do. So as your listeners are listening in thinking about the story, you believe to be your truth and what are you going to have to do to change it and then change it manager mind. So it's exciting times for us. We're having a great time lots of customers and lots of interesting work to do.

Bob Rosenberg & the Lessons Learned From Running Dunkin Donuts

"Bob Rosenberg on dose of leadership, former CEO of Dunkin donuts. I am so excited to have you on the show. Welcome pleasure. Well, you got this new book coming out in October, round the corner to round the world, your lessons of that you learn running Dunkin donuts I love Dunkin donuts by the way I think copies outstanding pilot. Now, go through the airport I always bypass starbuck's sorry starbucks and I always go straight to Dunkin donuts that coffees just so good to music to my ears. You know I was reading your bio and it said you graduated from Harvard Business School. Told me this right and your twenty five and you became the CEO when you're twenty five is that right? That's correct within weeks of my graduation I had in my early career I basically virtually grew up. Over the store I worked in lots of different jobs within my family business, which is not call Dunkin donuts gone universal food systems and a variety of different jobs I went to hotel school and went into the army, and then went on to graduate school in. Expected to join the family business but Lord knows I had no expectation that it's twenty five I dad who is only forty seven at the time eighth grade educated Guy Returns to me. And asked me if I wouldn't take over the responsibility of CEO. At his business said the REF aching request and that one third few weeks to decide upon. But ultimately best decision I ever made man the yeah. Obviously a life altering one of those decisions in life that that. was definitely a y intersection the road, and you had to make a choice. You went down that path and there was no looking back. Once you did. But Man Twenty, five, I can't imagine you know that was almost twenty seven years ago for me just the the leadership lessons I've learned from twenty five to fifty, two AB. been. I can only imagine you with your experience it had to be a minimum exponential. So the type of leader you were at twenty five to when you stopped in one, thousand, nine hundred and what do you think the big differences were one of the things that was an advantage early on in the first soda, era I break the book down into the six areas that I that I see as the company history from nineteen, sixty, three to. Nineteen Ninety Eight. But in the first era, the big help was business school and it was there that I learned the language to strategy. I would love to say that I came to the job as a copy twenty, five year old into it. All right I think I matured and and made my mistakes and boy did I make a lot of mistakes over those thirty five years if that the thing that I think the grew was my emotional intelligence. To better understand myself an-and away to. Hopefully understand my teammates around me franchise on his and the people that I came in contact with end consumers. and. It was a journey I. Mean I would absolutely say that It's an old saying, but it's true in my case no, you can't put an old hat on a young body. You do have the Soda Lauren through trial and error and I think truthfully, in my case, the setbacks experience were more informative and more useful. than the successes in fact, a big mistake the after the five I five is of tremendous success, the second five years or really difficult, and it really came as a result of the success of the first five years. It became an impediment to future success in it wasn't until. Unfortunately almost led the team off a cliff in the second five-year era that I really began to start to learn the more effective lessons about who I was what my responsibilities were. As a leader. and. It came from a book of all places. Really my my soda moment transformational moment for me. He uses a book that you read was kind of a transformation moment, moment or. Second Year of a second era of Maya my stint as CEO, and after the first five years basically was under pressure to go publican. And when I came out of Business School Isaiah inheritance universal systems where eight little businesses it was it was excused chaos and fundamentally what the team did is we basically narrowed that down a one we had really been experimenting with far too many businesses and we say basically decided to exploit the the sort of the diamond in the rough that we. Had which was a bunch of stores in many cases, soul breakfast lunch called Dunkin donuts and made donuts and coffee, and we decided to focus on our core business and quiz extraordinarily successful and we went from one hundred thousand dollars in pretax profit within five to seven, hundred, fifty thousand and we went public because my dad I've been trying to sell the business. While I was in business school was unable to sell from billion dollars. It'd become the billionaire always wanted to be after taxes and that was the reason he turned to me I. Think at that Young Age is he wasn't quite sure what to do and. Put me in charge. Then I changed the vision, change the dried to keep up unreasonable injectors and. Drove the business off a cliff I was sitting there amidst. Stockholder suits, franchisee lawsuits reading a book called the best and the brightest by David Halberstam. And it was a book about the Johnson and Kennedy Administration of the Vietnamese War, and what he maintained was even though the administration are governmental Mister show run by these Ivy Leaguers the best the brightest our country at the offer they never really went into the hamlets and into the front lines where the war was being waged the final what the true story was while the con-, winning the hearts and minds of the townspeople in the leadership in the towns. And Halbe Sam said the great fault lie in the fact that our leadership. Suffered from what he called Hubris the Greek word for arrogance in sitting in that chair and I remember like it was yesterday I said Oh my God Halberstam could be talking about me. Yeah it was in that and I decided I. You know I was blaming Franchisees for suing us and. Problems that we're having in terms of Mike. One of my key executives left the company because he had lost faith leadership fellow had gone out of business school with. An and basically we convened our management team. We decided that as leadership we'd never blamed. Martine. Mates are followership take a hundred percent of the responsibility hundred other responsibility. And that we that invite, we apologize for the Arab always we invited franchise on his end to noodle out with us what we did on how we can improve it. We decided we're GONNA go each of us to visit a hundred stores a year each in order to touch the front is travel with the district manages visit the store talk to the owners. Get very important in we created an advisory council. So fundamentally, we did a one eighty in terms of our attitude about how were leaders particularly need what my responsibility was in it all came from that that insight that momentary it's insight from that one book that was transformation I love that story the book was called the best and brightest what what was the full in the brightest by David Halberstam? Think Nineteen, seventy-three, it's it's it's bestseller it was. An important book at the time. In my view, it's still a great management.

Swastika, New York, Is Keeping Its Name

"There's a debate in this country over symbols and statues and place names that are tied toe white supremacy. So what to do about a small community in rural northern New York? Called swastika. This summer visitor proposed just changing the name, but local officials opposed the idea. Julia Richie from North Country Public Radio explains why Michael Al Kamo lives in New York City but loves visiting the Adirondack Mountains and upstate New York to cycle through its tiny towns and Hamlets and past historical cemeteries. He was on a trip like this winding through a remote stretch this summer when he noticed something else. Suddenly I came to a town called Watch. The Hamlets name was printed on a small brown street sign. He says he found the name jarring and disrespectful to Veterans of World War two, some of whom are buried in graves nearby, So I think it should be obvious that the town Should update its name and should pick a name that is not so offensive to so many Americans and so emblematic of intolerance, hate and tyranny. So al Comer reached out to county officials in August to see if they would consider it. He was soon directed to email the town of Black Brooke. Which has jurisdiction over swastika. The town agreed to add it to the agenda for their September meeting. And after about five minutes of discussion, the town's for counselors unanimously voted against it. So basically Was named by the founders of the area that settled there. That's black Brooke Supervisor John Douglas, who was at the meeting but didn't have a vote. None of the counsellors returned to request for comment. Douglas Saysthe Hamlets named far predates World War two and came from the Sanskrit word meaning well being the foresighted geometric character that represents the swastika has been used for thousands of years in Indian religions and seen as a symbol of good luck. Of course, That meeting was overshadowed beginning in the 19 thirties with the rise of Adolf Hitler, who co opted the swastika as a symbol for Nazism and anti Semitism. Douglas says. This is not the first time the Hamlets name has been scrutinized. There was concern that due to the Germans that everything that people may I have a different outlook on the name and some of the residents that were from that area actually fought or two and refused to change the name just because Hitler tried to tarnish the meaning of swastika. Douglas says the council didn't see a reason to change the name despite its widespread use as a symbol of hate and white supremacy today, I think that probably Maybe some viewpoint that it's associated with a butt that I believe there's others that do not associate it with. Hey, did the Hindus in the booth and All them today erase it from their religious history because of the Germans, Al Kamo. The cyclists who submitted the request was disappointed by the town's reaction. I didn't expect a quick, apparently quick, unanimous vote to reject the proposal. Social media response to the decision has been murkier, with some locals of the region bristling on Facebook at an outsider from New York City trying to meddle in rural affairs. But Malcolm Oh says he simply wants more people to see the Adirondacks for its natural beauty and deep history history, he says, at odds with the meaning of swastika today

Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis

"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

To the People

"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode. We're going back to one of our favorite times to the time of the reformation and one of our favorite figures, Martin Luther. Well, there's a recent book on Luther welts five years old now, but relatively recent. That talks about how luther used the printing press. To advance these ideas and the theology of the reformation. But in addition to using the printing press, this book also talks about how Luther uses something rather innovative for scholars theologians. At the time he used the language of the people and not Latin. The author of this book Andrew Pedigree Says Luther was a cultured and purposeful theological writer. He wrote fine Latin and his. Latin works measured up well against those of talented adversaries by saying that he was cultured meant he was educated. And saying that he was a purposeful theological writer means that he could get into the technicality. He could be exacting in his writing and in his logic, and he could go toe to toe with those in the academy, but then Dr Pedigree says that Luther made the decision to make the case in German. This was with a very crucial moment publication, his fifteen eighteen sermon on indulgence in grace. Now we know in fifteen seventeen. Of course we have the ninety five theses. They were written in Latin. They were intended to be a debate within the church. We also know that they were quickly translated from Latin into the German and through the printing press, and these printing presses popped up all over the hamlets and cities of Germany. That Luther Ninety, five theses were quickly distributed spread like wildfire cross German speaking lands. But what he wrote in fifteen eighteen this sermon, he purposely wrote it in German. An had it printed in German. And the reason is very simple. The people needed to hear this message. They needed to hear this message because they lived in darkness. Well going back a few decades to nineteen fifty. We have that wonderful biography of Luther that classic biography by Roland Bayton. Here I stand. This is how Bayton and biography. The God of Luther. Moses. Was the God who inhabits the storm, clouds and rides on the wings of the wind. At his nod, the earth trembles, and the people before him are as a drop in the bucket. He is a god of Majesty and Power, inscrutable, terrifying, devastating and consuming in his anger. Yet the all terrible. Is The all merciful to. Like as a father piteous his children. So the Lord. But. How shall we know this? In Christ. Says only in Christ. That was luther message that was luther trembling before a holy God. Feeling the anger, the wrath of a righteous God against him. A very unrighteous man. And yet he realized that in Christ. This all terrible one. Is, the all loving one. And loved Luther with a love that would not let him go. Well. That was the message of Martin Luther. He preached his whole life. Any new was a message that was far more than simply a debate within the academy. It was a message that had to be taken directly to the people, and that's what he did. Through the use of the German language and the use of a printing press. He sent that message around Germany. And even as the centuries-old on around the world.

Hidden Histories - Rosewood, Tulsa, Chicago

"Halfway between Tampa and Tallahassee, a hundred yards off state route, twenty four and ten miles from the next town stands a handsome Pale Yellow House with decorative white trim on the two story porch. The house was the only survivor of an episode of such extraordinary violence that it boggles the mind how quickly and completely it was swept under the rug. An entire community was burned to the ground in an incident of racist asymmetrical warfare. And most people have never even heard of it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The community had been or technically still is Rosewood, Florida. It was settled by both black and white people twenty years before the civil war, but the Jim. Crow segregation in the Post Bellum decades put a clear divide into the community. The town was incorporated in eighteen seventy after it got a post office on a train stop and was named Rosewood for the Pink Cedars that were also the base of its economy. Residents worked in lumber, yards, mills, and even a pencil factory. Until the cedars had been overharvested, and the factories began to close. Most of the white residents moved to nearby sumner. But one couple John and Mary right who ran the general store? They were kind to their neighbors, and were known to Slip Candy to the black kids who hung out at the store, possibly because their own children had died young. The white flight continued into the nineteen twenties when Rose Woods population of about two hundred was entirely black plus the rights. The little hamlet got by just fine. Until New Year's Day nineteen twenty-three. Over in Sumner, a woman named Fanny Taylor woke her neighbors, saying a black man had broken into her house and attacked her. Rather than alert sheriff, her husband immediately gathered a group of men. Including clansmen who were in the area for a rally and a tracking dog. the, dog, lead them to the railroad tracks, which led to Rosewood. The mob, which would grow to be three hundred strong got it in their head that they were looking for a black man named Jesse Hunter who had escaped from a chain gang. The dog ran through the open door of a house and back out with that of wagon tracks. When the homeowner swore that no one else had been in his house, the mob tied him to the back of a car and dragged him down a dirt road. Then they tracked down the owner of the wagon whose tracks the dog sniffed. When he also claimed ignorance and innocence, the mob mutilated and killed him. The mob came to the House of Sarah carrier the Taylor's laundries. Two dozen people most of them. Children were hiding inside having heard what was going on already driven out of their homes by fear. For whatever reason the mob was sure that carrier was hiding Jesse Hunter. They fired on the House and carrier. Sons returned fire. When it was over both Sarah and her son Sylvester carrier had been fatally shot, though Sylvester had managed to kill two of their assailants. Had, anyone bothered to talk to Sarah carrier about Fannie, Taylor. She would have been able to tell them about Taylor's lover. Her white lover who she had been with before the attack. As, the mob kicked in the front door of the carrier house, the people hiding inside fled out the back door to the relative safety of the nearby. Swampy Woods. Not. All were able to get away though. Carriers, other son James was found by the mob who reportedly made him dig his own grave before killing him. The newspapers of the nearby towns caught wind of what was happening. They ran exaggerated. Retailing's of the siege of the carrier House and blatantly false reports of roving bands of armed black citizens. Seeing that even more white men poured into Rosewood believing that a race war had broken out. Apparently it's only a race war when the race you're targeting fights back. The manhunt and terror campaign wasn't confined to that single night, but stretched on for nearly a week.

Is It Rolling, Bob? Talking Dylan: James Shapiro

"And so going back to think twice you were talking about about more about the writing. Yeah and it's something that I didn't know enough about until I was invited onto your program. But what are the things that interest me about? Shakespeare is the fact that you know. He wrote thirty six so plays that we know of and almost none of them may be. The tempest may be midsummer. Night's dream are his original story but for the most part Shakespeare was not interested in creating a new story. He looked around at the stories others had told whether they were Italian. Novellas or English plays or history's any thought I understand what's slightly off for not really fulfilled in this version older version and he did what architects call a gut renovation. He kept the frame and he just cleared out the inside and made it is. Oh so when Dylan writes. Don't think twice. He knows Paul Clayton Song. Who's going to buy you ribbons? When I'm gone? He worked with Klay knew who sadly killed himself in in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven. Eight toward together collaborated a little bit and I'm sure that there is kind of cross pollination if you will between Clayton Song. And and don't think twice and dillon with a little techy from what. I've learned about that you know he said I steal the word a or the word so whether we're done you know Ed is a good question. Although he was a little defensive even steal those words but he is reaching into a tradition a tradition that goes further back than Clayton to. What I learned was an African American Song that circulated in Virginia. Who's GonNa Bring you chickens? So what we're talking about. Our traditions and Shakespeare comes out of traditions. Really in very similar ways. To how Dylan does and plagiarism is. A useless category the only useful category. Can you take something old and make it speak to the moment? In a way that makes people feel connected to that song ways. Nobody has ever felt connected to it in dealing did that for me. I think I'm right in saying and correct me. If I'm not the Sean Wilentz I think wrote a book called Bob Dylan and America. And he I believe explored this notion and said you know what it's Alchemy. What he's doing is he's taking base matters and is creating something new out of it that shines and I thought that was really damage. It is in trouble. Lens is A friend and a very smart guy and I think he wrote brilliantly about about Dylan. Christopher ricks did as well They're just a people recognize. That is work rises to the level of seriousness. And it is how chemical it is a transformation but for me. It's really the lack of thoughtfulness beyond the magic of the transformation and the thoughtfulness I suppose has to do with. I see what's not there. That's a hard thing to to grasp and Shakespeare was really good at it. Didn't create the story of Hamlet. He didn't create the story King. Lear those were all plays bouncing around in the stage. You probably acted in a spear holder when he was young. He's onstage they could. God I can write this great Soliloquy at this point or I could tweak it in this way. And maybe it's not occurring Bob Dylan in a cerebral way. But it's occurring to him in a way that lets them know. Yeah I. I know the folk he sang exists but that song is dead on arrival. Something has to be done to reanimated and I suppose it's as much Raising the data's alchemy. And where do you think Dylan? Shakespeare intersect particularly? I think oddly even though four hundred years or so separates their birth. They both products of a similar education system. You know it's it's remarkable if you listened to to Dylan's account of education in his Nobel lecture in two thousand Seventeen. He talks a lot of doubt grammar. School you know. He learned things in Grammar School. The devices techniques secret mysteries whatever. He's talking about. He talks about gullivers travel. Dickins Don Quixote all these stories and of course we know he had a great teacher in school. Who taught him the poetry John Donovan? The poetry plays of Shakespeare so shakespeare learn what he learned in Grammar School. I mean this is a Western tradition that span than in now and both of them sat there probably frustrated probably demise racing as they were exposed to this stuff and taking it all in and a decade later or or ten years later figuring out how to turn this into into gold if you will and I mean that both literally and figuratively because you have to make money as an artist or like pulled claim you can end up desperate and suicidal and both of them figured out how to do that. And if you think you know as a thought experiment Dylan or Shakespeare Been Born twenty years earlier or twenty years later whatever genius they had could not have been fully rely so yes. They were both remarkable artists but they had great luck in being born at what they recognize. Both of them were pivotal moments in in their culture in the arts in the possibilities that were now available to young

"Friends from Pearl Jam taping this Sunday afternoon. We don't need to take this on Sunday night anymore. Because there's no sports it's all it's all vintage sports. I've actually been preparing for this moment. My whole life. Old Games ran. Russillo is here as he is every Sunday. This was the part of the schedule. And we'll be talking about March madness thoughts where the last couple of weeks of the NBA would were going. Would-be worried about Mvp conversations and things like that. Now now I wanNA talk about The later shot. 'cause I watched that with my son yesterday. He had never seen he didn't know is going to happen. He was amazed. I got to relive it. Threw Him Russillo. Yeah that was Was An all time. I mean that that seriously in the moment you're like this is a kind of game that I'm going to think about the rest of my life. I mean not every day Certainly but late nurses dominance is a college player and then seeing younger people watch that game now and not like Lakers mom and you go. You guys have no idea you have you have no you think you know but you don't you know what I what struck me watching that game. I thought Leitner was going to be a really incredible pro because he was so good in college. But then you watch him and you think about the translate him as I go. He's got slow feet was really hard for him to like. Put The ball down. Every shot was almost like a miracle shot by hamlet on balance. Fling shots These turnaround fifteen footers. I think nowadays he would have been an awesome stretch five. I think he would have been shooting eight threes. A game in everything he did would have been different but I am. I was mad at myself. Twenty eight years ago that I thought later was going to be such good proud. Who else knew who knows what else happened. When we went to the wrong team. He had some personal issues etc. You know what the great lesson about Labor is is that he was. You'll know better than I want to get anything where I get this. Kinda thing wrong. But was he one of the first guys like tested positive for. We'd like in that era. Right or was rumored or something. There is always always rumors. He talked about that thirty for thirty. We did that. You know he definitely Off The court might have had a couple issues but a everything. I love watching these games and just getting upset about some of the issues are making 'cause like Grant Hill. Just first of all. He was a soft mark coming off the bench which seemed inconceivable but It seemed like he could have gone by anybody. He wanted to Kentucky team at all times and yet they're like all right spread out for Hurley. This is much better option. Hurley's got this. Maybe she go to grant hale the guy who guy who's going to be a first team all NBA guy in five years. Yeah later was suspended. Some Games there. I Don history but I just wanted to double check it because I remember later on and that was you know when I started talking to guys in front offices in I would be leading up to the draft and I was like you know. How can you figure some of the stuff out because what you learn is that no one really figures it out? But when you're outside of the world you think everybody has this magic. Is that that none of us can understand? It's really not that and something to gm told me that was really really smart and again it was the very beginning of me talking to these guys when we were talking about backgrounds personalities and try to figure things out and he goes look he was plenty of guys that are from terrible areas. Have a terrible family set up and have bad guys around left and right. And they're the best teammates they practice hard. They care they never get any trouble and then you look at somebody like Leitner. Who's like the poster boy? He's one of the best college basketball players in history. Not just guys that we saw was that dominant. He was incredible. And it's like here. He is Duke. Looks like he's a gap model and the whole deal and it was like well. Yeah you know now no one cares about any of this stuff but I just always thought that was really really interesting to kind of talk about lake nurse transition to the pros because he was. It's hard to imagine. He wasn't better because he still was a decent player like he still had a decent career but he was at all incredibly dominating at Duke You thought there's there's no way this isn't going to be a special pro. Plus we had familiarity with them. Because we're able to you know. Watch him and watch that Duke team evolve and even like they were shown Cherokee parks on the bench and acid. Like I remember. They recruited him. He was like the number one guy in deal he was going to be. It was going to go from ferry to Leitner to Cherokee parks. And you know you watch him on the bench and guys like Thomas Thomas Hale who added thought of in forever you know we just watched all those games back then and and something changed with College. Probably Fifteen sixteen years ago when you know. Maybe they will. Maybe it was less time. I know everybody's talked about all the possible reasons for it but it just met more back then like I remember where I watched that game and who I was with. You know an and there's been Great College Basketball Games especially this year late. They were shown. Today they're shown Carolina Villanova two thousand sixteen. That was an awesome game. That was really fun. But it. There was a weightiness to especially that ninety two seasons. Because you had the The fab five and It just every I remember everything about that seasons it was fun to relive it. I thought. Cps did a good job the way they showed it see. It felt like a real game. They didn't try to cut ahead. They would go to commercial and they would only show one ad so they could go right back so it stayed in the flow. But they didn't try to edit it. They didn't cut free throws so it kind of felt like being a time machine right. Yeah that when I've gone back in watch the NBA stuff You sit there and like the thing that jumps out especially working on the side of it now like I would. They're all these things that I would never think about is just a kid home watching these games and now that you work in it not that you and I have extensive background calling games but you just you look at it so differently You know when you mentioned the college basketball thing though it is. It's a simple answer. You can't have a brand where you're changing the brand every single time like. Imagine if you had this hit. Tv show with all these characters that people invested in and he said. Oh by the way we're never bringing these characters back for season two where he's GonNa bring all new characters and it just. It's hard it's really simple answer. But the turnover. Who used to get weird when guys would leave after their sophomore years but like what like what that. Guy. I think. He's doing now granted. It's wrong I think I should be able to go straight out of high school but there's just you know we like things to be easy as fans and really as consumers in any story like really it's how do you get people to jump into the next part of the story and college. Hoops like how many people can name. Who's on Baylor? You know for the season started. I stopped everything to watch Baylor. Kansas and it was a really fun game. This year was like nine. Am Tip out here. But I know that those kind of Duke Games or that Saint. John's Georgetown stuff for Sarah to that big Monday like I would watch that instead of the NBA growing up and now. It's absurd to think I would ever do that. I saw. I noticed watching that thinking about that team and even Kentucky and they were talking about how they were on probation for two years and the guys stuck around. Patino saying they really have anywhere else to go the other. Yeah they had all these seniors that were there but one of the things. I loved about college back then. Was it married high school in the sense I. The new guy shows up. And he's the freshman. He's gotTA prove himself. But then you got the older kids that have been there for a while and you know. The Duke was like the perfect example of. They're they're really like a high school team. Cherokee parks was the young freshman. Grant Hill was a sophomore. Who is going to take it over when Leitner leaves and and that dynamic that just eventually was gone. You Watch that game and you're thinking Mashburn Ingrain. Hiller are sophomores Mashburn. Just unbelievable there. Eight hundred twenty eight ten just looks like a classic stretch for now he he would have been I think a multiple our NBA Guy. There's no reason he should've even stayed at Kentucky for two years he should have gotten into the NBA as fast as you possibly could. We didn't realize that back then. Yeah I got to know Mashburn when he was at he. Spn One of my favorite living in Bristol stories. Is he and I go into Walmart to buy an extra controller and I didn't know it was going to pay for it because I didn't want to assume anything and I was like. Yeah 'cause I had the playstations hooked up in my hotel room and we were just bored out of their minds so it's me Jamal Mashburn at Walmart and I asked him about that team. And I always when asked about different coaches that these guys played for. I was always really interested. In which coaches told you to stay or told you to go because they're guys that are really selfish about it but then there's other ways you know now it's it's out of control like no one. Stang but back then I was like well. What would say to you he goes? I'm not letting you come back. You're too good like you're too good. You have to get out of here and I know you know Ripa Tinos. Rep's is taking pretty big hits over the last couple of years but that was something that I was always really impressed with that. He just looked at like I was like. Did you want us? He's Kinda wanted to stay because mashes whole thing was like. He's a New York City guy and his mother wouldn't let him go to a school in New York City. He was telling me about some of the recruiting stuff like Saint. John's back then still would've thought they were getting Jamal Mashburn. And he's like my mother was like you're not you're not playing ball in the city. And then he goes on a Kentucky after Kentucky went through that that brutal stretch. And you know that's that's the game if you're thinking of one loss that you've had in your Phantom Bill. I'm trying to think maybe it's two thousand. Ten Celtics Lakers the one. That's things the most I don't know if it's game six eighty six in the mets. But that doesn't feel as bad since they've won four titles but if you're a Kentucky fan like that's the kind of that stuff comes up every day it's like Bucky Dent in the eighties for Red Sox fan just sitting at a bar. Mfn Bucky Dent on because later shot. Well the Kentucky did end up winning. I think it's probably worse for Mashburn Jerk Kentucky Fan. You had to tidal teams later in the decade. Because like Ben and I were watching. We went right from yesterday. We were watching that Kentucky game and then the Major League Baseball Network were showing the playoff game in seventy eight Yankees Red Sox and we watched the last like probably two and a half innings and I was explaining to him how the playoffs worked back. Then it was a gay. You played the whole season. It was two division champs in each league. They tied so we had to have a playoff game. And he was like Whoa. How did they decide? Who had it as like? I don't remember. I just remember like everybody from Boston to stay home that day. And we're watching it. He had no idea it was going to happen. And a living through the the remmy hits that shot to Pinella. Panella can't see any just jabs his jabs his mid out. I'm getting mad at George Scott all over again. I think he was my least favorite. Red Sox player just swing for the fences. Every time never never touched a ball early on that he was early. It was at the head of it. Yeah Jangle That was such an agonizing loss and they've won four world series since and it still really hurts Agata Sad. I don't feel any better from it. Yeah I I grew up hearing about it because you know that's where our our gap comes into play. Were still too young to but it was one of the first things like eighty two as my first sox game against brewers and I I just remember like the Bucky Dent thing like it was four years later and people still in them. I remember that we again emceeing. So if the way your brain store stuff early when there's nothing else in there so they allies kids we can always go back and remember anything. Because there's no distractions of real life. But I remember being upset after the fact years later. Just my father telling me that they blew the fourteen game lead and you just go. How is that possible? Like how? How could they have low like how they had the best team? And all these different things and again that stuff used a matter a lot more And Eighty six at all comes up again eight years later so we've seen over the last few days in especially ESPN and then Nba TV and emo but others channels.

Pants on Fire: Cheerleading

"Welcome to pants on. Fire that game show where kids choose between the cheerful and spirited truth and the bad sportsmanship of lies. I'm your host Deborah Gold. Cnn in the studio today is our sound effects about Lisa which stands for live in-studio audience too but not too but that is the question. Pardon me I poured in the lady. Thank you but what is it that you are doing? I'm practicing my lines. I have an audition tomorrow for the robot. Regional Theater production of Hamlet. How that's exciting to thrilling. Indeed but to be honest I am nervous. Oh I really want to be in this play and I've been setting all the lines for weeks. I think you're going to be great and remember this above all to thine own self be true. What is that some sort of fortune cookies saying? No it's a line from no forget it. Why don't you take your mind off your audition and tell us how our game works Shaw Melody? Every ways we bring onto grownups. One is an expert the other ally and it's the job of a human to help us figure out who is too because no one gets about Aligarh better than a kid. I mean we hope right. Otherwise Radha business. What are we lying about today Deborah? We are lying about cheerleading. An activity of organized cheering chanting dancing and sometimes competing with stumps Lisa. Do you know anything about cheerleading. I'm sure had mentioned my great uncle. The electronic scoreboard was installed at a basketball court. I used to go to games and watch him keep score the cheerleaders. Were pretty good but nothing is as exciting as watching your uncle. Flip those numbers. That's real spirit. I I can appreciate that but I think you're going to really feel the spirit when we learn more about cheerleading. Now whatever okay. I say we should find out about our contestants shall we? Who might that be? I know tell us are human child contestant as an eight year old who loves everything about baseball. I'm Talkin every billy leave of it lily are you. I'm good welcome to pass on. We're so happy that you're here. You love everything about baseball. You like watching it or playing it. That's cool duva favorite baseball team. Yes the New York mets.

We'll we want to know some more fun facts about you lilly. But we're GONNA do it the way we do it on pants on fire playing two truths and a lie. Okay so you're gonNA tell us three facts about yourself. Two of those facts will be true. One will be ally and we have to figure out which one is the lie. Are you ready? Yeah Excellent. What are your three facts on so first one is my dreams go to West Point West Point? I know absolutely everything about Harry Potter. Threes my grandparents live in Spain Spain. No not space stain. That'd be fun. Okay what do you think Lisa? Which one of those things is a lie? She said earlier that she knew everything about baseball. Now trying to come back and say she knows everything about Harry Potter. That's like a lot of that. One is the law. That's fair. I think there's one things she doesn't know about. Maybe so lily. Which one of those things is a lie Is My grandparents live Spain? So you're saying you know everything about Harry Potter. Yes okay. Let's see. Do you know what Harry Potter does? Yeah he's a wizard. She does everything she does. Okay Lisa can we get some welcome music? For OUR CHEER EXPERTS. Two four six eight khurda appreciate. I want to hear about it if it's me otherwise I don't talk about it. I just appreciate me. Our first expert is Allison Williams. Allison introduce yourself to Palo Lily. I am a CO owner of an All Star cheerleading program in Brooklyn New York. Pay Thank you very much and our second expert is Gerry mccrae Jerry. Please introduce yourself to lily. Lilly how are you? I'm Cheri and competitive cheer choreographer at Various High Schools in New York and Connecticut and they used to cheerleader twenty Peac University. Two thousand five to two thousand nine go Queenie plus enough. Let's see those are some cheerful sounds? Lisa well I always feel cheerful. It's I'd say time toads. We are going to put our experts on the hot seat while they answered lillies questions Lisa. Who should we put on the hot seat? I Jerry Maguire. Because he's going to show us the money. His name is not Jerry Maguire. But I like your thinking anyway I fine. Blue Okay Lily. What question do you have for Jerry to start? Tell me about what you do. What does a typical day in your job? Look like sure so. I've been hired to come up with competitive cheer routines at various high schools. So I go. I work with the students. I kind of envisioned the whole routine. I teach it to them and we go through all the motions and until we're ready to go. Put it into competitions clue. Yeah that's my job to. That's basically what I do. I see. Allison how did cheerleading become a sport? That's an excellent question. So initially cheerleading began in the UK in the mid eighteen hundreds and then traveled over to the US and at first there were college students who were in the audience watching a football game and the athletes weren't doing well during the football game and so the audience decided that they were going to get together and they were going to encourage their fellow athletes from there the sport grew throughout the US and then officially became competitive sport in the nineteen eighties. It's also spread throughout the entire world since then cool. This is for you. Jerry what would you say is the worst injury seen on the Mat So one time I did see a basket. Toss gone wrong person. Just didn't catch the flyer so she fell down. Hit the person who was on the base that they both kind of hit their head on the ground and Yeah so just to head. Injuries is the worst I saw. Because you know you need your you need your brain to be intact or two. That are they okay. They're they're still with us. That's good yes where I don't see bring them. He said they were with us. It's just an expression that means they're non dead. Humans are obsessed with. Who's alive who is dead going? What are you robots obsessed with? Good question we have you ever had something called Zucchini tuition. So mean Okay Lily. Quick change the subject away from that. Vegeta- this one's for both of you. Can you tell me about the jump? The herkie Chanda Hurricane Joe. Okay who wants to take that question? I'll start okay. So there was a fellow named Lauren Turkey and he founded the NCI the national cheerleading association. And he also invented the pom pom so they named jump after him because everyone loves him and he big in the world of cheerleading. And it's just this fantasy cheerleading jumping with some nice arches in aerials well to add onto that Lawrence her car. The reason why the jump was specific named after him because he attempted to do a split jump and instead bent his leg and as a result he came up with this jump. That did not exist. Which is why was named after him the hurricane.

What it Means to Be Creative with Vanessa Dewey

"Vanessa is as a community builder marketing professional and currently works at Adobe as the senior project marketing manager. That's a mouthful yes it is. Hopefully this is not actually. I just left on Friday. So it's all new. Okay so my guess my first question it was gonNA be anyways sort of if you WANNA talk to us a little bit about what you're doing. Now what your journey has been up to this point and what you're going to be doing. I guess now in the future shirt. We'll definitely I apologize about that brand new. Everything's happened so quick. No not necessarily I looked at today just to make sure everything was updated. But we don't don't always update linked in with our life right. Yeah especially when things just happened. I'm a little slow to that right now. Yeah no worries I guest. I'll just say overall my career path is definitely not linear. I'm definitely not tick the box type of creative My background is in graphic design for about eight years years. I was in house designed for Mattel branding and packaging orca across multiple verticals of the play patterns of toys And then I serve at a certain time of my career halfway through at during that venture at Mattel I decided to served take something else because I realized there is no outside. Craig is coming inspire a creative community of four hundred to six hundred plus creatives in Los is Angeles so I took on while having a full production schedule realize I need to take on and create the speaker series grassroots and over the course of five years built up from from quarterly to buy weekly bringing design. Thought leaders like Brian Collins. To wwl moment I Leela Nash. Meyer wow what a great idea it was it. It was in theory but that's was in essence in two thousand thirteen. When I started doing that it start planted the seeds because at the same time to I had a thought? What would you next my career so for me? I want is see and found other opportunities to infuse leadership and other types types of opportunities to help elevate and evolve myself as a creative and as a leader so the speaker series is also you know as you mentioned. Aig I got involved. volved in the Los Angeles chapter quite a bit and over the years that served helped me in an in a way to supplement where I was looking for that I was in say per se getting as IC Mattel not to say that. The community wasn't amazing but still like that extra in two thousand sixteen. I think this is just a year or so before I bet you my life I hit my. What's next month in my career? I was no longer inspired and just I could do packing branding. But it just wasn't singing to me in my God and then at the same time I decided to leave. My husband divorced him so so there's so much and what I ended up doing was professionally. I was able to take a role and evolve it and creates a so. I guess that's experiential educational and inspirational called the hub ultimately that's supported by four hundred six hundred plus Craybas at the headquarters of Matale. So I continue my speaker series and added onto that by Craig. An Internal Speaker series support at highlight creatives leaders in our community. At mattel a podcasts. Help my L. A. D. My led with crave career path and as a side note this role actually dead. The COO transitioned into H.. Ourselves and learning development so I go home ready packaging to hr so that lasted for almost two years. And I quit when I went into that role I went to a w maximum San Diego and one of my friends is one of the community managers for the creative jams community on team and I went up to see if there was any inside of eighteen was coming enterprise side so as it as it turned out they were working towards that end in summer of two thousand seventeen. I was part of the pilot for Adobe Craig Gems Enterprise Foul. KABC's what okay. So crazy is who don't know okay crave GM's as core. It's part is a to park. They have experienced part inspiration apart hands on Their community and there's also enterprise now but basically basically the format is you have teams of craters two to four depending varies but having teams creatives have asserted brief learn a certain tool from adobe. CBS Adobe Dobie Stockton W rush and then have an our tasks over three hours to address the brief while leverage these these tools rules you then also bring in thought leaders such as local design leaders or even just creative leaders anybody to EXPARC inspiration depending on what you want the talk about and the theme and also the end you bring in all craters and having do presentations of their final deliverables also Two percent of the teams and there's usually prizes and also it's A. It's a nice experience. Yeah it's a hack actually creates a little more elmo fun and not just a hack no. It's just a lot of fun. I actually participated in a creative jam here in Albuquerque. Oh Yeah my team member and I actually won the the choice choice award or whatever the thing is but yeah. I just wanted to kind of explain what that is for the people that don't understand we haven't had one around here in a while so just options is to explain a little bit but so when it happened was coming into twenty twenty eighteen. This program was then adopted onto the Create a quote enterprise side the marketing so I was brought over to join the team. And that's where I ended up so what from branding. Packaging Design Zayn into more of a creative HR learning development role and then that translates very well into this Role within the enterprise side and had it was a great opportunity. What I did was each of basically what I was doing it Mattel's then able to translate across in essence to different customers? Key customer customer so over the course of the first year has A. I was lucky enough to be able to help. Establish that in Europe so I was working with customers curate atheist. BESPOKE EVENTS FOR BBC Vice Media Sky TV to to pet lebrons. I did some in North America to and then I came back to North America Because to focus more on this last year in particular last feels those focusing on North America helping out the team here see. We're kind of split living indeed. Yes correct for the first. While months to fourteen months I was splitting time. Actually between Los Angeles and London which was mental? And then and then then I started phased out of the Arab side but then I still at once. I moved to New York I was for workwise those in New York but still continued when I could because I could work remotely at times. I was in London when I over the course of over the course they are right built a really lovely and inspiring design network and tried of add. Some really dear friends over there so I just could've. That's where everything's to me so I would always go back there when I can. So that's amazing. So are you at liberty to kind of speak to. Oh what your next step is what you're up to right now before we go onto our topic for today sure. No I definitely can't so basically I had a moment of clarity clarity literally Thanksgiving Week. I was elected and I had all these different mope conversations with people and just something clicked and I'm just actually. She probably take a pause to the last three years. I've taken a pause between METALLICA Dobie. I took two days off a Saturday Sunday. which is not a weekend? So I'm just figuring house and delving into what I really WANNA do some side projects and then having conversations I haven't been able to have And a few other things too okay. So what sort of side projects if I can pry. I love people side project so for several years. People keep saying you need to write. You need a ride. So I'M GONNA be pitching some articles goals designed based on creative base but also to one of my passions besides building communities connecting people and is coffee as you probably And you post lovely lovely pictures of coffee a thank you so basically what I'm GonNa try to do is also create a dialogue Building community meaning but more or less talking about coffee also brought it broader crates. So I'm trying to figure out a way to pitch a formatted adage series. So if I'm in London I'll pick three craters or three people within even the food industry and go to their three favorite coffee or wine wine shops and talk about it and go from there some. I'm playing around with different types of not just doing creative or design industry focus writings but other also infusing so my other passions. Yeah that is really exciting. Thank you and then all of this. I'll be taking my pause in in London so I bought a one way so London and the man so We had a long layover. I I was in Europe In at the beginning of October and we had a really long layover in London So so we we had like a four hour chance to just kind of explore as quick as we could. It was the day of that crazy brexit thing on a Saturday. So loggers augurs and like subway places. Where like blocked off and stuff but I definitely want to visit again when it's probably less chaotic and when we have more time to the hang out there but it was it was really beautiful? It is there something unique about the design community and just the creative community as a whole and then also so to a city. It's Io's feels like little hamlets piece together so you have a high straight with just bustling but then you can go off a couple of blocks and you're quite canals and so it's a nice. It's a nice

This time line drag it out increase the costs. It was not the best managed program in the world. There were some political decisions made around the route that was chosen that ended up. Increase in costs, even more. There were sort of gambits on what you would start. I what you'd start to build first. They thought if we build in the central valley than no one would be silly enough to cancel the project before it got to the actual population centers. Well, Gavin Newsom come on down. That's exactly what happened. And now we have this stub of a high speed rail line that's going to be built from Bakersfield tumor said that I think the only people that are going to ride it are traveling salesman. And maybe presidential candidates looking for votes in the central valley. And this is going to be the demonstration project for high speed rail, and it's going to be demonized as this train to nowhere. And that's a real problem, especially when you look at the climate benefits of of high speed rail, and when you look at at what you know, this will signal for whether right or wrong for what a high speed rail project can do. So I think. That the people thinking about the screen deal, which is really only a resolution stage also need to think about international best practices how to get agencies to work together, and how to build these things more cheaply than we normally do in the United States. It is enormously important if we're gonna do this, and we need to build an for management infrastructure to figure out how to do better more efficiently and cheaper where none of this is happening van Newkirk and David Diane.

Yeah. But again on this day forty years ago. It wasn't clear that that was going to happen. And interestingly, we now know that president Carter of all people who hung in with the Shaw for a very long time even January seventy nine he was still saying the Shahzad guy. He has the support of his people. He it turns out was having a secret dialogue with Khomeini. Really? Yeah. Totally. He was having secret talks and Carter initiated it by nineteen Seventy-eight Khomeini was in Paris. He'd been in Iraq for about twelve years and Saddam Hussein in nineteen seventy eight kicks him out at the request of the US. He goes to France sets up shop in this little hamlet outside of Paris. And a lot of his supporters are there with them. January of seventy nine Carter institute suspect channel he uses this political officer who's with the US embassy warns Imerman Khomeini picks, an Iranian American doctor, et Brahim Yazdi, and these two are the interlocutors, and they get together and have these bacterial. Conversations. This was all declassified in two thousand sixteen and that's why we know of this longtime BBC journalist, Jim Muir. He did this recent documentary on these secret talks, and there was a lot of back and forth between Warren's Imerman the American and Yazdi Khomeini's, man. And the last message from the Iranians to the US in the secret talk was from Khomeini, not Yazdi. It was directly from homini. It wasn't Iranian position. It was the auto toll of speaking unto. He was being kind of cuddly, fluffy, marshmallow, E dot com to thing. He was he was saying, but we're not necessarily going to be hostile. It depends. How you behave. The oil to the west will keep flowing gonna try to export revolution to the Gulf. All these nice reassuring things which turned out when history marched on really not to be true. Now, there's a debate about whether he was lying or whether events just took a much more radical turn on he went along with it as evidence for both views. But that was suddenly the message Americans go that he was saying nice things. But these. We're going to be very difficult people to deal with. All right. Carol back to Khomeini upon his arrival in Tehran this day nineteen Seventy-nine. What did he say in that moment, you cut it off earlier, so many is addressing a huge crowd in Tehran?

We have a text question for you from Saint Paul this person says when was Saint Cloud formed and what makes the town tick? Well, it was formed in eighteen fifty six so you know, under sixty three years ago. So when you little hamlets came together became Saint Cloud, and it's actually two years before Minnesota became a state. So it right on the Mississippi River at at that time. It's interesting because the story is there's three three small little hamlets that came together that were very diverse. You had a little German Catholic area you had a Protestant temperatures to abolitionist area. And then you had actually some southerners who actually brought slaves into that area of those three commuter. Those three little hamlets became the city of Saint Cloud, and they were divided even physically at that time. And so, you know, it's had like other communities. You've had you mentioned the issue challenges accept challenges. It said immigration that said change over the years.

"And San Jose is anything but little I'm as many naked. Before I was a speaker in California, experienced some wonderful times in San Jose announced leaving exploded even more especially with what's happening with Silicon Valley and Google trout. But just I think what people don't know about San Jose. It's also this cool little I thought of it like a little hamlet in the way, the downtown was awesome. And it still is because I've been there have been back there, Cheryl, what is set up for. You is I think San Jose is a little bit of sugar spice and everything. Nice. I I do. San Jose is very quaint. And we have the downtown. Feel with being able to walk. And having all the hotels located around the convention center. And there's multiple bike trails and thanks to do within the area where we have to children's discovery museum. Technetium of innovation. Mubarak where we put a lot of bands. We also manage the theater's. So we can overflow into the theaters for meeting space and. He's those than us when we run out of space in the convention center. So it creates the head downtown. Deal. Like, a huge campus and the customers seem to like that because it's all walkable there's no trust transportation happy needed. So that's one of the things that you would offer if people are going to have conventions, air, etc. Bring business there is we love our neighbors to the north San Francisco, but it's so easy to get around. Here. It is very easy to get around. We do. When we use the uptown properties, we do promote. So the hotels. Heartbreaking potentially using real passes with them. So that they can get easy access to downtown. The transportation to visit San Jose will manage transportation to the properties and bring them into the downtown. In this business here at max Neal look around and there's a zillion destinations. How do you keep relevant, and how do you how do you stay competitive? It's a tough question. I ask myself everyday myself. I think every American in a world where we live in this zoo, seven seconds to make an impression world, there's no question about it. And I've been to San Jose. And I love it. So I don't even have to sell it. Because I feel that way I've spent time there, but it's tough when you have to paint that picture. Is number one. We try to work with the planner as best. We can. We know what our properties are. And how we can make the best package. As competitive as possible. And keeping the customers within. Our guidelines of what we can do and making sure that it's going to be good for the convention center as long as the city and continuing to try that economic impact. And and making sure that we keep up with are repeat customers because again a lot easier to customize. Making sure that we continue to look at what are other destinations are doing. So that we can say, okay. Well, this destination did this. So it's making sure that we're reaching out with our counterparts and seeing how they are managing meetings. I think that was dead on your answer. Wait, you're in San Jose. What's your personal favorite thing about San Jose? Is it a restaurant? Is it a nature walk? Is it a museum is that the people? What is I would say? Is a river walk and the Guadalupe river walk actually goes from downtown all the way out to the airport. So we do a lot of fun. And a lot of the attendees that come into town. They actually go to that river walk back and forth. I think Ben runs at once in a while when he comes into being. Being able to be on the river walk. I mean as much as. Plotters, kind of gets you out into the air the nature. What's your goal for San Jose? Your personal goal to see happen. You have an awesome wrong. The Queen bee. Of San Jose. Paul. We would have a thousand high rise hotel. I love that answer. That's good. Oh, we all want to stay in one of those is perfect. Spell. Right. That would be something that we would need to work on the city making sure that we get that. Because that is a competitor. That we would. All right one last question. What keeps you up at night? That keeps me up at night. I would say. Making sure my teammates have the tools. Are happy. Continue to do the best that they possibly can. Making sure that I'm nervous support them. So that we can continue making her. That is the perfect answer. I can't do any better than I have to wrap this up, Cheryl. Thank you so much. We're going to get another perspective here from Dan from visit San Jose. And you already know how much I personally like San Jose. Let's talk about Google and what Google is doing Google. Has definitely put it on the map. There's no question about it. And there's the sunshine campus tells us how that's going in. What does that mean? Yep. We're super excited. It's early phases. They're just wrapping up acquisition of land and are looking at start development in conjunction with the expansion of rapid transit system for San Francisco expanding all the way into downtown. It's incredible potential for downtown's be transformative, essentially almost double the footprint downtown, San Jose. When it's all done. I still early days. I think they're targeting twenty twenty five to be the completion day. So there's still a lot more to come. It's an exciting opportunity to really expand the downtown. Really? Continue transformations began a couple of years ago already. Developing rapidly with downtown. You know, it's funny about developing rapidly contracting with that expansion the eagle that also means apartments, and that kind of stuff in finding living space for that has added. Oh, yeah. It's been it's been a couple of years in the mail. High-rise apartments coming in. Expansion has commercial leases everything from we work to Amazon's are indeed development coming in downtown. Original high-tech downtown adobe. He's going to build another tower expanding their presence downtown. Really accommodation. What we've been seeing with development downtown. Restaurants and bars I five coming in. And it's really. Jerry cherry on top of this fairly downtown, San Jose getting off the ground. I bet it is when you when you're economically dealing with all that your prime channel the numbers stopping and again, that's exciting and keeping up with the. What do you think is the hidden secret about San Jose? Living there that maybe people. I think there's there's a lot of different perceptions depending on where folks from San Jose. I think. I always liked about it. He's got this really cool developing urban four that's Justice greatest any other city in America. But you still get these little small town neighborhoods. Patchwork quilt neighborhoods. Whether it's really unique communities surrounding act for the diversity of San Jose. The people but also in terms of just access danger. Frank wineries. Nature. It's really it's really I bet it and in talking about looking at the future and forecasting for that. And obviously being here, I'm exit subtracting business. So how do you how do you were talking about Cheryl getting the word? It's you know, it's really about you know, sort of making making our story in artist Silicon Valley. But you know, we've got our neighbor, which is internationally known city. It's about authentically. Representing what we have. Now, we've got credible urban feel, but it's an accessible approachable way that for the business now for right.
