Scientists discover nearby 'diamond planet'
"TWINKLE twinkle little star how I wonder what you are like a diamond in the sky. That familiar nursery rhyme may actually have a ring of truth. This is innovation. Now, bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future geologists explain how diamonds are formed carbon and other carbon based materials are put under tremendous heat and pressure over millions of years and are then pushed up from Earth's mantle through volcanic eruptions. But recently, scientists are talking about a new form of diamond one that. Exists in outer space scientists have discovered a super earth. They believe is a diamond planet. The star system located about forty light years from Earth is primarily made up of carbon iron and silicon millions of years of pressure and heat have slowly turned the planet's carbon.

Ava Movie Review : Jessica Chastain powers this moderately thrilling assassin saga
"I'm Madeleine brand. I am ready to review some films of two of my favorite favorite critics and two of my favorite humans all time alongside early and Dave White film critics for the rap and host of the podcast, Linoleum knife. How you guys Hello. All right. Let's talk first about Eva. Jessica Chastain stars as international assassin, but a job goes wrong. Here is some of the trailer. I know you like Eva. She's a liability. No, she's best to breathe. I recruited her trainers talking She's always been jukes favor, but she's a loose cannon and dangerous of the organization. Alonzo. What did you think so? Yeah, this is, you know, typical international assassin and runs afoul of the corporation. And of course, she must be closed. Um, why is it that only the female international assassins also have family issues, whereas the male international assassins were always completely cut off from their own feelings and from their own families of their own pasts and all that stuff. Really The most interesting stuff about Eva is that a bow, played by Jessica Chastain comes home to Boston, where she has to confront her fractured relationships with her sister, played by just Wexler and her mother, played by Gina Davis. On Of course, Gina Davis was an international female assassin in the long kiss. Good night, so that's a nice little Bow on this, and the scenes between Gina Davis and Jessica Chastain are so crackling in a Confrontational, dysfunctional family cannot away that you kind of wish this had been a confrontational, dysfunctional family movie and not international Super Assasin movie. But I mean, it's a lot of that movie is has been made. It's called What ever happened to Baby Jane? Good points, But I mean, you know the The pieces in this are not bad, like the actual international Super assassin scenes are pretty well done. There's some pretty good action sequences. Maybe Not in like an atomic blonde kind of way. But still like when. When Jessica Chastain gets into a scrap with Colin Farrell or, you know, I mean, John Malkovich even gets into some violence in this movie. Those scenes are kind of fun, but then you gotta shift gears into Ava and her addictions and her family stuff, and it's like The movie is in all the lanes and it doesn't really ever quite nail any of them. So I maybe wish they had. They had taken off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house, you know, either lose one of reds here, Dave. Moments of cool, stabbing and kicking. Alleviating boredom. Unfortunately, they missed this golden opportunity to allow Gina Davis To be revealed. To still be her long kiss Goodnight character, passing the mantle of super assassin. Down to her daughter that they did They do this. They did not do this. Unfortunately, if you're going to make a movie with a plot, as wrote, and by the numbers as this You got to juice it up somehow, You know, it's not. It's not enough that the Jessica Chastain isn't a long red gown. You know, stabbing and kicking and shooting. Okay,

Will Marvel re-cast Black Panther following death of Chadwick Boseman?
"After the death of Black Panther's star Chadwick Boseman fans are taking to social media to demand that his role not be recast and future Sequels. Fill. This brings to question what the Black Panther re casting process would look like if it were to happen. Joining us with more on the KCBS Bring Central News Line is Tim Grey, senior vice president at Variety magazine. So Tim, what's your thoughts on this? Marvel is going to be in a bit of a pickle for the foreseeable future. Yeah, I mean, I think I think it's the there's an online state of mind, and it's like whenever they announced the new James Bond or when they would notice a new spider man. People online are saying no, that this person is going to be terrible. And then the actor turns out to be good, and they like the film. I cannot imagine. I've seen people suggesting that they just canceled the film supposed to be released in 2022. I think that's not gonna happen. I think I think they'll probably recast it. I mean, they could explain that by saying, you know, he is being reborn or regenerated or or they could just do like to do with James Bond. It's just he walks in, says I'm James Bond and everything's okay. All right. I'll accept that. Is. Is there anybody from the previous movie that you think might take up that mantle? Could they even put a female in the role of Black Panther? Well, I mean, that's an interesting idea. I mean, you know, again with the Spiderman into the spider verse, I mean, there were about 15 different Spider men of like all ages and races. You know, there could be that. I think you know Michael B. Jordan was was really great in the first film, thinking that he could take over. There's a lot of good actors. I think it's possible possible T catch an unknown, but I think I think you know the film will go ahead and and and I'm guessing that fans will embrace it. But People really loved that movie and and and they loved him in it. And so its people are in a little bit of shock right now. And you and you hate to be so blunt when something is so fresh like this, But Marvel is a company and it will come down eventually to dollars and cents for them. Yeah, well, I mean, the first movie made a billion dollars, so the idea that they would Just mix a sequel. I think that's not gonna happen. But I also think fans when they're over the initial shock of his death, I think they will want to see another Black Panther movie. I mean, I I want to see another Black Panther movie. Um, I'm curious to see what they do with it. But But Ryan Coogler, who directed the first one is working on the second one, and he's really smart. He's got really good taste. So I I have Ah, lot of faith in him.

Trump deploys militarized federal forces across the US
"Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he will send federal agents into Chicago Albuquerque and New Mexico to help combat rising crime, expanding the administration's intervention in local enforcement, as he runs for reelection under a law and order mantle, using the same alarmist language, he is employed to describe illegal immigration trump falsely painted democratic-led cities as out of control and lashed out at the radical left. Even though criminal justice experts say a spike in violence in some cities defies easy explanation. The decision to dispatch federal agents to American cities is playing out today. Hyper politicized moment when trump grasping for reelection strategy now that the corona virus has upended, the economy and immigration is largely at a standstill crime has surged in some cities like Chicago, New, York, and Philadelphia, before any major policing overhauls could be made. In trying to explain violence in some cities, experts point to the unprecedented moment in the country, a pandemic that has killed more than one hundred and forty thousand Americans historic unemployment stayed home orders, a mass reckoning over race and police, brutality, intense stress, and even the weather, and despite this compared with other years crime in twenty, twenty is down.

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?
"The. World is made up of about ninety percent of right handed people and ten percents, left-handed people folks who are truly ambidextrous, those who use their right and left hand equally well make up a negligible sliver of the population, but is ambidextrous, inherited or learned, and if learned, can it be learned as an adult? We spoke of email with Dr Sebastian. Auckland Berg a professor of psychology at Ruhr University and BOCOM Germany. He said a little bit of both. And this is determined by about twenty five percent, genetic factors and seventy five percent, non genetic factors like environmental influences. It clearly runs families, so it is somewhat inherited, but learning might also affect it I think amdex steady for a specific task. like hitting a tennis ball with the racket is possible, but full embiid extremity for all tasks is unlikely. Handedness being the skill in comfort, a person feels using one hand, or the other is considered a complex genetic trait, and since genes are involved hand, preference develops before a person's even born, but like other complex traits handedness including ambiguity extremity doesn't have a simple pattern of inheritance. Yes there is a greater chance. The children of left-handed parents will also be lefthanded than righties, but remember the chance of being a lefty is just ten percent overall, so most children have lefties are still right handed. An identical twins are more likely than non identical twins to both be either right or left handed, but many of both types do have opposite hand preferences, and that's before we even talk about whether a child's handedness is allowed to develop naturally or whether parents and teachers interfere. Hand dominance typically develops around age three and fully developed by age four to five, but it can be influenced by insisting a child uses their other hand, or by happenstance for example when he was four years old, former major league baseball pitcher Billy Wagner broke his right elbow and spent the summer in a cast. In his memoir Wachner victory recalls being a natural righty at the time and already mad for baseball, but for the next six weeks he threw only left-handed when the cast came off, he was in for a surprise when he tried throwing with his right, the ball went nowhere had lost not a strength of coordination for throwing with his right arm and gained it in his left. Wagner wrote. I was a natural righty then and still am I do everything right handed eat told tools right start lawnmower everything except pitch. Wagner wouldn't be considered ambidextrous though he's certainly managed to have an incredibly successful career working with his non dominant hand. Baseball is full of players who switch hit meaning. They hit equally well from either the left or right side, and are comfortable, facing left or right handed pitchers, some like hall of Famers, Eddie Murray Mickey Mantle and Chipper Jones were successful, but they like. Wagner weren't truly ambidextrous. Which is something? That's very difficult to do, but why the? Lindburg said headedness is something that is generated in the brain, not the hands as such. The half the brain contra lateral to the hand is better in controlling fine motor movements for example, the left brain hemisphere in right handers. The strength of this preference varies between individuals. Some people have a very strong preference for one hand, and resulting from that greater issue in using the other for specific tasks, so it's the brain that sets the barrier. But if the brains, that's the barrier. The brain can also remove it. Take the case of Billy McLaughlin. McLaughlin is an award winning guitarist known for a unique style of play, placing both hands on the Fredbord, Originally predominantly a right handed guitar player, but in the late nineteen nineties despite having a record at number seven on the billboard. He was struggling with control problems. He was missing notes when he played an experienced muscle spasms to the point that he was unable to perform. Finally in two thousand one McLaughlin was diagnosed with focal Dystonia, a movement disorder, causing muscles to contract involuntarily, though advised to find another career McLaughlin opted to teach himself to play left handed and he succeeded. So this begs the question. Can we teach ourselves to become ambidextrous as adults? A two thousand seven study found that as we age, we actually become more ambidextrous without even trying in part because the hands that we use more loses. Its dominance of the study was small. It included sixty participants all strongly right handed according to the Edinburgh handedness inventory, the participants completed various computerized dexterity tests, which included line tracing and aiming task and tapping the youngest group average age, twenty five years performed all the skills proficiently using their right hand, the Middle Age participants average age fifty years performed well using either hand on the gaming task while the two oldest groups average ages, seventy and eighty years performed just as well using either hand on all tasks except one. However overall performance appeared to decline with increasing age especially for the participants dominant hand, leading researchers to believe that quote, we become more ambidextrous as we get older because dominant hand loses its superior dexterity, and becomes more like are weaker hand. Some people have wondered whether attempting to become ambidextrous could strengthen the brain and potentially slow or fight the effects of aging or dementia Allen Berg said that's a myth, while it is true in general that brain training is a good idea when aging research has shown that what at strengthened is what is trained, so if I trained to write with my non dominant hand, this would affect the motor brain areas of the contra lateral half the brain, but not the areas involved in memory. Thus a specific memory training would make more sense in aging and dementia.

How Does Uranus Work?
"Scientists have coined an appropriate term for the large chilly bodies like Uranus ice giants. Neptune falls into the same category. But you're in. This is quite an odd duck compared to its neighboring planet. For starters you're a spins on an extreme tilt resulting in some truly wild seasons around the polls even the ice giants name is a bit peculiar and not just because it makes school kids chuckle. Okay let's not kid ourselves. You're never too old to enjoy good year in joke. Headline Writers certainly don't thinks so if article titles like NASA wants to probe urinate in search of gas and Uranus. Smells like farts are any indication. These jokes if you're not getting them hinge on the spelling of Uranus you are an US allowing for an english-speaking mispronunciation as your anus meaning rectum that where classy puns. Aside you're in his represents a break with nomenclature old tradition mercury Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn and Neptune all took their names from Roman gods or deities however uranus uniquely was named after a Greek God in the religion of Ancient Greece. You're an was revered as the primordial God of the sky he had a son named Cronos and a perhaps more famous grandson notice Zeus. Those two figures were later conflated with two Roman Deities Saturn and Jupiter though the planet Uranus was discovered by Stromer William Herschel March thirteenth of seventeen eighty one. He didn't give it the name we use today. A loyal Britain Herschel wanted to call this far away. World Georgie 'EM CD's or Georgia Star. In honor of King George the third but by nature. That name was politically charged to avoid. Alienating non-british Stargazers German astronomer Johann Alert Buddha suggested calling the planet uranus in seventeen eighty three eventually his alternative Monica one out but back to that axial tilt a planets rotate around an axis. Which is the imaginary line connecting their northern and southern polls and they simultaneously orbit on an imaginary plane around the Sun now Earth has an axial tilt of twenty three point five degrees. This means there's a twenty three point five degree angle between Earth's axis and its plane of orbit around the Sun without the tilt our home world wouldn't have seasons or possibly life. Uranus is skewed to but to a much greater extent in relation to its orbital plane. The ice giants access has been tilted at a chopping ninety seven point seven degree angle next to Saturn and Neptune. Urine looks like it's lying on its side so what we are orientation. A computer simulation published two thousand eighteen suggests your was hit by a huge Proto Planet. Around four billion years ago then again there may have been multiple impacts or a long gone circum. Planetary Disk could have played a role however it happened. The tilt subjects both polls too long dark winters long. Bright Summer's on Uranus was orbit around the Sun or one year lasts for roughly eighty four earth years. Each poll is aimed almost directly at the Sun for about twenty one St Earth years during its summer season. Meanwhile the other pole faces the opposite direction. Enduring Alliance Dark Winter. Despite the extreme tilt urine is warmer at the equator than it is either poll. Nobody knows why. And this isn't the planets only mystery. Jupiter Saturn and Neptune already radiate more than twice as much heat as they received from the Sun. Yet you're innocence. Heat output is significantly lower. This disparity has long baffled planetary scientists as we already mentioned. You're innocent. Neptune are both ice giants planets of this sort have rocky cores covered by mantles rich. An icy half frozen slush of ammonia methane and water next up there's the atmosphere whose outer level is full of hydrogen helium and even more methane researchers found that urinalysis atmospheric clouds contain hydrogen sulfide.

That's negative one fifty three to negative to eighteen degrees Celsius. That's hardly a welcoming environment for any future astronauts but at least the color scheme would be familiar. Earth isn't the only blue planet in the solar system. Methane absorbs red light giving Uranus and Neptune deep blue complexions of the two worlds. You're in a slightly greener since nineteen seventy seven. We've known that Ernest has a ring system around its equator to date. Astronomers have counted thirteen rings encircling the planet the structures are relatively dim and lack the fine particles observed and other rings systems like Saturn's each one is composed of debris chunks that are golf ball sized at minimum for some reason smaller material gets exiled and space between these rings in also has twenty seven known moons twenty five of which renamed after Shakespeare characters like affiliate Juliet. There's Dimona puck and Miranda who's namesake appears in the tempest geologically complex. Miranda contains the single policy cliff known to humankind dubbed Verona repays. It has an estimated height of twelve point four miles. That's twenty kilometers. Meaning that if you happened to be walking along its peak and you happened to fall off. You would plummet for twelve minutes straight before hitting the ground. Others satellites of note include sicker acts and Caliban while most of your Ennis's moons spin in the same direction as the planet does these to revolve the other way. Scientists think they were once independent objects that the ice giants gravity in snared by the way how ban is another tempest character and sicker. Iraq's was said to be his mother from it's weird rings. It's puzzling climate. You're Ennis's found plenty of ways surprises. Only time will tell what further mysteries the planet holds until then although it's very dim your is visible to the naked eye on some dark clear nights if you have sharp vision if not so much. It's easily visible with noculars or a telescope.
Byte The Elder Sign Podcast
"Glenn Written Brandon Buddha host. The elder signed podcast. Who came up with the idea of doing this type of podcast? Well that's a fantastic question. And I. I think that answer might change depending on on on the setting but I think like like so many good ideas this one was was born in a bar and I think we dared to to do it and and no one blinked and so so the show is show is now happening and I urge everybody to listen to the first introductory episodes really explains what you guys. You're going to be covering and you talk about the new weird Gr- you guys talk about it at length and have a great definition and I just hope people listened to that but what I really found interesting was talking about the twenties and thirties and HP lovecraft and so many great authors Robert Howard got their start writing for essentially what was called. I guess the old pulp magazines talk about that. That was probably the beginnings of of horror and science fiction. Maybe starting to get a foothold. The little bit yeah. A lot of these guys were just writing for money. They wrote a draft and mailed it out and hope to cop published then could buy can a can of meat in love grass case or whenever they needed to live on they were writing to live and they invented a lot of tropes that we now associate with weird fiction and horror and science fiction and it was all kind of one thing. It was just coming out of these magazines. That were that. Were just on racks. That people bought read on the train and so many of these writers. Just that's what they had. That's what they did. Lovecraft is notorious for kind of living a poppers life and mailing out these stories one after the other just writing prolifically and it was a kind of lifestyle and it was the big form of entertainment for a lot of people in the in the nineteen twenties and Nineteen Thirties. He I mean what lovecraft did you know really inspired so many authors after them and even screenwriters and directors frankly they they just took up the mantle that he started came up with so much interesting stuff and developed his own mythology to that we all know in love so yeah he was he was great. I gotta ask you guys about the The selection of the different stories that you cover and we'll go into some details but you have you know stories from Robert Block where it is or the moon remorse of course lovecraft and even a know Howard of course and and even some Some more recent writers as well talk about the selection process. Because there's a lot to choose from. Yeah we're really intent on covering the whole gamut of of Weird Fiction really broadly conceived of really from the beginning of modern literature modern publishing around the eighteen hundred or so up until today and one of our real interests is in charting the way that a different people in different societies and different ages and also around the globe have responded to the the tensions and even the the traumas of their historical contexts by writing weird fiction or horror fiction or science fiction to to be airing out the things about their own world their rapidly changing world many cases that they find unsettling and to do this as kind of a real comparison that I think will will really shed a lot of light on the way that this fiction can actually be used to tell us things about their societies and by contrast in people from one hundred fifty years ago with people who are writing today and the interim period and all the way in between I think will really shed some light on that.
Pam Shriver - US Open finalist aged 16, winning Olympic Gold, and partnering Martina Navratilova
"Thank you so much for doing. This is an absolute treat to have you come and yeah in very strange circumstances obviously for everybody in the world not just the tennis world. You're joining us from California. I believe how how things over there. How has lockdown? How you coping the situation and the lack of tennis in La Lives. Well I would say over all I'm really proud of my three teenagers at a time. When teenagers want to distance themselves from their parents. They've accepted what has to be done. I feel like California in the mayor of Los Angeles I live. We live in Los Angeles. So we've had some leadership both at the state level and and at the city level that has been really strong very consistent and I think that's one of the reasons why Are Part of the United States is actually done much better than expected in pleased that the generation who the order to stay at home. It's really counterintuitive to what they want but There's been a lot of acceptance in I can tell you as a homeowner sixteen years ago bought up property with a private tennis court. Tennis court is one of the reasons why a couple of us in the family have kept better sanity. How much you missing professional tennis right now? Well you know I missed Indian. Wells would have been an easy drive. I missed that one. The most I will tell you because of the business of my home life regardless of a pandemic or even if I'm just driving my three kids around and The the level of detail that I would follow the tour from week to week is not as detailed as it would be like when I worked for ESPN at Melbourne and maybe look the weeks leading up to Melbourne. I knew what was going on in the lead up tournament so for me personally. I haven't missed it that much but we haven't yet gone past one of the tournaments. I think would impact us the most which would be say for for me. Roland. Garros Wimbledon. I mean I thought the tennis will did a great job of I mean it was tough call for Indian Wells. I remember that Sunday night when it was called It took everybody by little bit by surprise but it just started the domino effect of what this virus in the effects on the world sports It just started a series of closures around the world yet studying to look like a very pristine cooled by by that tournament. Looking at your Your social media. You look like you've taken the opportunity during lockdown to have the most neatly and cleanly arranged trophy show in all of Iraq in Pam. Yeah one of my first during lockdown one of the first things I was thinking. Well little things can I post What content would be interesting and I thought all right well. My mantle pretentious fans would be interesting to see The the major championship doubles trophies. Most support try one with Martina. There was a US Open with a net. Pashas vary of there was some Fed Cup stuff. There was recognition of our Grand Slam doubles year as well as the year. I got the finals of US. Open in singles at Sixteen. So I thought it was kind of a fun tour and I guess most of the stuff I posted that one had the most views in. I think it just shows you how much people want to see one way or another or or touch any way major tennis. He absolutely in all of these things that that you just mentioned there. I I really want to talk about. I in first and foremost your your partnership with Martina Navratilova. Seventy four doubles titles together including Twenty Grand Slams. You're you're still the most successful women's doubles partnership of all time. What what made you such a great partnership the too well. I think there are a lot of things I think when you look at how we played our singles The style of play with serve volley back in the eighties. That was kind of. That's how you play doubles back then too so it was really Our our singles games translated into being great doubles players. Naturally the lefty righty combination. If you look in tennis history whether it's nukem Roach whether it's the Brian twins whether it's McEnroe Fleming There's a lot of great Lefty righty doubles teams. I just think you know the choice of who serves the sun's tougher righty. There's just a lot of things that are beneficial to having a lefty righty Our personalities you don't have a partnership that long if your personalities don't gel well We enjoyed each other Our senses of humor clicked in. There are a lot of those matches through the years where we would play after. Martina was the featured match at night So we played and we had to wait late night tennis So if you didn't enjoy each other and our coaches got along. Well obviously we had teams. That were much smaller back then. My team was generally just one Martino. It's one of the first that brought in teams of more than one But our team's got along well and so it just led to who knew that January eighty-one with lead to what it ended up leading to it was I think ultimately nineteen eighty that Martina. Kool G to US could be your your partner partner. What do you remember about that? Phone call was at Deer Creek Country Club in Deerfield Beach Florida having a late practice and I'm a member. Lee Jackson longtime referee for the tour and She came out and You know years and years before anyone has self owner yet said Martinez on the phone and I mean whoever is practicing with the it was the practice was abandoned Iran in got it got on the phone. And W T tour office and You know she asked me. She doesn't mix her words. She didn't learn a lot of pleasantries. Just asked me if I had that commitment to doubles partner for the next year and I said no I did not. I had just the. Us Open just a month prior. I'd gotten into the finals with Betty Stove in Betty Stove his last tournament. And we lost Billie Jean King and Martinez. I think it was six six or five and five and I think that was probably the last indicator. Martina needed that. She she she was looking for. A younger partner was starting. Her career could play for a period of time and so it was obvious it. I didn't even have to break commitment. Thank God because if I'd had a commitment to somebody I mean that would have been a tough a tough one to pass on playing doubles with Martina. So I'm glad it worked out that I didn't have a commitment to a partner confessed to a tip off from for Mary Carillo but she has suggested that that I ask you about asking Martina to sign a cocktail Napkin to seal to seal team together forever. Yeah well we had already been together a long time because we we. We went through a stage at think Springtime of eighty four. We lost in the tournament of Champions in Orlando. We didn't lose again for over two years so I think it was. One hundred nine straight matches When we hit a one hundred wins and it was in Eastbourne so the tournament director George. Tendon threw a party for us that night. And we were celebrating To to the history of tennis no one can remember doubles team ever hitting one hundred wins in a row so A I decided to take that moment. I wrote a contract on a on a peeper. Napping it says I'M MARTINA NAVRATILOVA. Promise always to play doubles with Pam. Shriver and I had a witness line. The George Hendon was signed in as I stood up to give the toast and give the contract Martinez in my head ended up in a lamp shade so it was kind of like it was funny and it was. I have that I have. I still have that cocktail napkins somewhere. But it's back in Baltimore. My hometown Collecting dust but will not be thrown out. One hundred nine matches is is truly extraordinary April nine hundred ninety three to July one thousand nine hundred five did you did you feel. Invincible is a team. Well a lot of those matches we went into the matches knowing we were going to win them. But there was a handful that were incredibly dicey and I remember one in particular that was Right in the middle while it was about win number seventy five and it was in Madison Square Garden against our longtime rival. They were generally the number two team behind us. For many of those years Souckova Elena Sakaba Claudia. Coda kill and we came down to a tiebreak in the final set and I remember it was five. All it was late in the tie-break whenever I was returning and Martina just said return it low and I'm going to go and I'm like yes ma'am you know like you WanNa. That was great. It was like a plan now. Of course then you still have to execute but I remember as soon as I hit the return like that's going to be a low. It was a good return. Sheet timed or poach perfectly. Put It away and then we won the next point on serve so that was the hairiest moments that was when we came within two points of losing. But other than that. I don't remember match where we were like. Matchpoints down we. We won a lot of those matches during that streak in

"There's an inkling or something to do you know as far as doing that But at the end of the day you make a great point we don't you know Bruce. This is perfectly right He. He's not gonNA vote himself in. You know if it was easy you know he'd already be in there and we all know what three world series and motivate five years. So you know he's going to get there you know. I went on a cruise with him. I don't really like him. Because he beat me at Ping Pong but other than that great manager was you know I blamed it on the high seas that but but you know again so I i. I just think you know when you get to the hall of fame or are you talking about the hall of fame boy a special special club that You know you're just happy to be in there and you know the great thing about it is once you get past your first. You know the induction weekend. Then you actually can go and have a good time. Oh that'd be great. Video told us that the other day that after the exactly it's easy and it's fun at. It's very comfortable at last one for you. You know you mentioned the the. The writers didn't vote for for you. That bothers me when I go back and I look at the voters didn't vote for Hake Aaron and Willie mays and Jackie Robinson and this year. We had one voter who didn't vote for Derek. Jeter I don't get it and I. It bothers me D. Does it do you care at all about that when you follow that we saw the was a few years ago? I think three or four writers didn't vote for Gingrich junior and I can't stand that well. That's because they WANNA be different. I guess you know I mean. How do you not vote for you? Know Dimaggio or I mean what didn't mind you have to get in the first year or something I'll come on you know. Yeah Right. Because he didn't stay married to Marilyn Monroe. I mean I don't know you know I don't look at that. I mean you know like I mentioned jobs inskeep name. I'm not even you know somebody said you must be in the top one hundred players and I said No. I didn't make the list and I but you know people all you didn't strike out enough guys You know I asked the An Analytical Writer in Baltimore a couple of years ago I said so I should be. You can get numbers is it. Good my strikeouts. Go Up with a runner at third in less than two outs you sit. Oh Yeah went up twenty one percent. I said well there you go so you know I mean you know and I read an article in espy nation. That I was lucky. Solid fame pitcher because my batting average on balls in play was to thirty nine for my career and you know and I had good defensive players so therefore I should be penalized but let me bottom. Line this for you. I was really fortunate to play with some of the greatest glares and then some of the greatest asks the reason famous. Because that's exactly what happened. You know I mean You know I had you know hall of fame manager Earl Weaver. Everybody says you know I mean I mean. I've been watching. Ken Burns some of the baseball. Don Boswell said I had complexes on top of complexes and whatever and I wouldn't have won fifty games without earl weaver. I won fifty games. I one hundred sixty eight games. 'cause I played with some of the best players ever and you can just go. Down listing some of them aren't even in the whole thing. You know the players the Mark Andrews with eight gold gloves. The you know the rich coggins who with two outs in the ninth inning. Mike Ferraro hits. The ball is going to hit the chalk. Line and and Rick and Richie sitting on the line or standing in line almost as straddle and catches the ball. Sure double. You know to nothing. Lead to outs in the ninth inning. And you know I'm waiting to come in and I said what were you doing? There racist played against guy last year. I knew he couldn't pull you. I knew what you would do. Well that's how you get to the holiday. I mean that's you just have players that come out of a great organization you WANNA win know how to win. No you have to do it together. And it's Kinda like we're GONNA do. Nineteen you know where we're not gonNA beat this by ourself. I didn't get the hall of fame by myself I I. My parents told me to sign with the Orioles because I could assign with any team of the year before the draft and it turned out. Well you're exactly right cool. Jim Stay safe as always amazed by your memory. I'm amazed by your knowledge and I appreciate the time. Well you're welcome. I made most of this stuff up muster. But maybe I'm not GonNa see I guess the big question will I see Arizona? Are we actually GONNA play any baseball at all this year? Hopefully that'll be a help. Anyway you.

"And you know after Brooks and frank hit. The home runs in the first inning. I said boy. We know we have a chance to win this game now. We had a good ball club. We had won ninety seven games only three more than we had one in sixty five when the twins as you mentioned went to the world series but they want to. Franklin's over its forty nine home runs two more in the world series is the MVP triple crown. But Motor basket. Came in and you know Mo- We have picked up for twenty five thousand dollars on a waiver wire and he had a great arm. Great Command great breaking ball and I was sitting there at age twenty going. You know. They're having a little trouble with a High Fassulo and on that particular day As I mentioned a pitch my first shutout you know my command was pretty good. The fact that Willie Davis made two errors really three years on to fly balls in an errant throw. You know I got enough runs where you know again. It wasn't a one nothing game. Which is what happened with volley bunker be coasting and game three or when the guy came back the Don Drysdale one nothing in Baltimore on a Frank Robinson. Home run so you know? I think a lot of times you you know. If you're pitcher like I am and you just go out there and compete and the stars were aligned. That day you know again because of the errors in fact it and who knew that I was going to be sands last game because he was coming off and just well typical. Colfax the The year you know if you go back in you know from sixty five to illegal you know maybe the early sixties to nineteen sixty six when he went on twenty seven games. What you remember about getting word that Sandy was retiring Was it a surprise for you? And did you ever get a chance to talk to sandy about pitching against each other that game? No but you know you mentioned the fact that you always you know you always Kinda pitchers with starting pitcher and you know on on the Monday before The first game is Tuesday. I think maybe the Wednesday game was the game that I believe. That's the day that I ended up pitching. I know it was game too. I remember taking you know. Shake hands with Sandy. But you know again when you grow up in southern California for forty years and you go to dodger stadium and You know people say well who you know. Who did you want to emulate? I wasn't left handed so I really couldn't be saying he coca. That could be done Drysdale. Who you know made every right handed hitter. They got into the box uncomfortable because he was very much like Bob Gibson. You know you again you go on your your rear end you know. Colfax you know. Sandy was more genteel. Probably I mean I probably was more of a right hand version where you know. I only think I hit thirty nine batters in maybe four thousand. Not that I couldn't pitch in I just. I was more of a kind of a vertical not horizontal pitcher like Drysdale it gets into whatever and Sandy was the same type of Guy. But you know anybody that you know. I mean I I you know I knew about the perfect games and the no hitters. I mean buster. Who Sandy Koufax you just like. I said you don't want to embarrass yourself and you know again i. I don't think anybody anticipated number. One the Orioles winning in nineteen sixty six because she mentioned dodgers. You know they'd beating the they'd be the The Yankees Sixty three. There'd be the twins the real good ball club and sixty five and then all of a sudden they're planning the Orioles and again. Why is we had a good team? You know we went ninety. Seven Games I think that everybody thought that their speed and especially to their pitching would dominated. And it's just amazing that one team in four games only hits one twenty five and that was the padding average for the dodgers against the oil pitching staff and sixty six. Yeah still by by by the numbers the worst performance for any team in world series history. You mentioned no no no no. Let's rephrase let's rephrase it was about reform of any so you mentioned you hit You know how few batters you hit during your career. Your manager Earl was was not in line with the thinking of a lot of other managers who believe strongly in retaliation he was. He was kind of ahead of his time. And I remember a story. We mentioned bike Messina early in his career you got. There was a huge dust up between the orioles and the Seattle Mariners and Mike hit bill. Hassell men because he was told to and then he got hurt in the subsequent brawl. Mike told me after that he said I never would do that again. how did you? How did you feel about about earls handling of those situations in the way that he viewed the whole question of retaliation? Well I played for from sixty nine through eighty two and the only time I ever remember him telling anybody to told anybody was the game. That in nineteen six Reggie Jackson came out. Remiss five Five weeks You know twenty nine runs a kind of cost us dependent because you know he held out him. You know you wanted a five year deal. The Orioles really didn't have much force on it because he would've signed for a lot less than he ultimately would sign at the end of the year as free agent with the Yankees. But we were. We were playing duck Alyssa stitch. And you know somebody tried to drop down. And you know doc you know. Look into the DUGOUT and yells. You know the next one of you so and so's I'm GonNa hit you right inside the head and Reggie got up on the third day he says you WanNa hit somebody get me. Well next time up got hit him right in the side of the face. The right between right below the jaw Maybe a little bit underneath the year and they brought the EMC truck right out on the field and they They took Reggie to go to hospital. And I go out to pitch the cop the ninth inning and I have a four nothing lead and Erlichs me as I'm going up the steps that he says you know. We can't let that happen now. That's the only time ever heard him ever do it? And as it turned out you know. The first hitter was elrod. Hendricks he'd been traded to the Yankees Along with the Rick Dempsey tippy Martinez Trade. And whatever and I'm not gonNA throw it the guy that common no hitter so I actually hung occur ball and they'll rats live out to deep centerfield for the first down. Here comes Mickey rivers and trying to hit Mickey Rivers. Because anybody that ever saw me play was marvellous player. But he was always moving. I mean he was like you know the guy you know the arcade bear. You're trying to get with a rifle when you're a kid to win the win price. Well definitely four pitches to nick him in kind of in the not ribcage but really got his uniform and of course he goes down to first base You know Because it's four nothing plays Bu Powell behind him and then This would be no Eddie. Murray hadn't been I'm not even sure who was playing first at night but anyway played behind him. He steals second base because they give him the stolen base. Roy White done single in. Now it's four to one so I I lose my shutout. I ended up getting two outs. We win four to one. We go to Detroit early in the morning the next day and they macphail when I mean walk into my hotel in League scale phone rings and it's like hey how's the family. How's the weather by the way he said I read in the paper where you you said that you were protecting your team that I said. Yeah I said you know. Ask The empires doc yell from the Mount Everybody here. It didn't hurt in in the MEZZANINE. Anyway he says that's GonNa cost you five hundred dollars and is so so for you know hitting the one guy that Earl Weaver. Gopi to hit. Which was Nikki Nikki River? And I didn't hit him in the face. I mean Nick them in. The uniform cost five hundred dollars. I got the Joe Cronin Award because I did a lot of work with. Cystic fibrosis. Got Invited to get the award at the place. And I'm sitting next to Lee and he goes by the way he says you know. I'm never going to five hundred dollars so I said Oh. Yeah I'll send you the check. Well I forgot about it all winter and I get a telegram from the American League Office today before going to Pitch Opening Day in Baltimore. You see if you expect pitch you know tomorrow. I need to get the money. So that's that's the Earl Weaver Philosophy you know but Yeh Grand Jackson came over eat. Somebody UP IN SEATTLE EARL. Ran Out to the mound. He said take a look at our third. Baseman is our third baseman better than theirs. In Bucks at yeah and he goes labradors shortstop right around the field because early one. Anybody her you know he just realized that if we had really good clubs if you played on you know you play it and you didn't get hurt and you didn't let your ego and you know get in the way of good sense. We were GONNA lot of games. And that's why Earl Gotten Hall of fame and we went to six world series. I looked it up by the way you were talking. Lemay was your first Baseman For that particular game I WANNA ask you about pitching to to to various hall of famers and what that was like I. I looked up your numbers against Mickey Mantle. He was one for fourteen with seven strikeouts against you. The one hit a home run. What you remember about Pitch Nam? And what was that like as a young pitcher the first time well you know we put on all shifts now and I mean. I'm I'm not sure I'd be a big advocate. A lot of the chefs. But I think the first time I'd say Nikki hit a ground ball to my legs I go you know you know. I kinda hung my head and the aperture you show who you know ends up in. The hall of fame is playing shortstop for us. In sixty five you know catches it throws them out the the one hits you talk about happened in nineteen sixty six. I believe in you know Mickey was at the end of his career. You know in the sense that his knees were pretty much much better hitter. What he was facing lefthanded pitching getting right. And then of course I was right and so I got this. Just ride the on him so I strike him out the first time afternoon. Game at the stadium and He comes up the next time. I think maybe the bottom the six at the bottom of the seventh inning and each baron. Who was catching said Nick. Choking up he says yeah. I'M GONNA try to get that high fastball and I go to balls and no strikes on them and I look over and Guess. Who's on Deck Roger Ramirez now even at age twenty buster? I was smart enough to know. You are not going to pitch around key but the two you know with the two nothing lane onto and okay. Now you're GonNa try to give them some hit well. I talked a little bit off to try to throw a strike and there used to be football spotters. Box done the third deck just to the right of where the bullpens were both ends and back then were up there shoot and right field and up to shoot the you know the visiting team. Buffy Willie is splintered the box I mean it. It didn't go as high wasn't a game like you know. Robert Redford and the national in the national but it was close enough. And that's the only Nikki Mickey ever got off me but you know. I saw him hit his five hundred runoff. Stu Miller and at the stadium and somebody tweeted you. Know what are you doing now? You know your social distancing yourself. You're washing your hands trying to get some exercise you know probably watching more TV than you really need to do but somebody. I tweeted the other day. They said you know Mickey Mantle or did you grow up I said is that when Mickey Mantle. I mean I grew up in New York. I was adopted at birth I love the Yankees. My Dad just like billy crystal talks about city slickers he. He took me to the stadium in nineteen fifty four was a Tuesday night. It was before color television and when I walked up with that. You know up up up the stadium ramps. It was raining that night and I think Allie Reynolds pitch for the Yankees and make our C. Pitch for the Indians. I didn't like the Indians and fifty four is a beat. The Yankees would lose for the giants in the world series but that was my first time and then ten years later I came in and relief of a Frankie Bettina after. Fill.

I wasn't young people to know that you can go through terrible times but if you form relationships and use those relationships to keep you strong you can make a difference. People like teammate Don Newcombe and Roy Campanella who pillars of of support during his playing days and endured the same bitter discrimination as Jackie her entry he said if this fails Jackie. This is going to be set back. Another thirty or forty years might never happen. You cannot afford to fail now. Can you carry that burden? Jesse Jackson's regarding Carey I will never forget Jaggi.

This is about helping all of you believe that you can write your own history and demand more of yourself every single day. You have to do that and you have to pick up yourself when somebody knocks you down. Today we continue a legacy so that tomorrow they will.

It's sort of put the human touch on this will Matic vision that I had of my childhood hero. And not that there's anything wrong with doing that. Sometimes it just brings you into reality and studying mantle over the years and touching base with with him over the years. And then again, you know, everybody is where you know after retirement he had a difficult time with alcoholism. It was tragic. It led to his early demise and death in nineteen ninety five and.
