"Why do you think that vulgarity is so much easier for people to absorb than culture? Because it does not require culture exactly. It's easy because it does not require education. It doesn't require refinement brain refinements. And therefore, so much easier to like things if you don't know. The moment you begin to know knowledge brings you sifting abilities. So you begin to sift the good from the bad. The more you know, the more sophisticated you become the more refined your taste becomes and so forth. So that is the task. Is to sift trash up. Now, you've said that you believe that design should be forceful and that you do not like limpy design. So how do you define limpy design? How do you define forceful design? How do you find defines of be designed? Design and design that is emotionally charged that it has intensity on whatever it does. So that is not only harmony, but is provocative at the same time where the balance between the elements is exciting the black and the white space. I mean the printed and the emptiness are in a proper country where the color works in that respect. And all that works with a good sense of appropriateness. So it's great for that situation. I don't like limp design, you know, the kind of the kind of nuns like to do, you know. I wish that our listeners can see the little hand versions you're making right now. Did you find limpy? And you know those angel pure weak kind of a design, basically, you know, pale colors, meaningless stripes and minimal things. So what is meaningless? Is it decorative? Is it there for the sake of being there? Yeah. Anything which is not pertinent and towards situation. But again, it depends on the object and the situation. I'm not against the correlation decoration could be very good, you know, by the way out of ways and way of achieving. We achieved decoration by subtraction because it's a fraction is our methodology of working. Other people achieve decoration by addition. They keep adding, they do something they do a plate, and then they put the flowers on top. Why are you putting the flowers into why don't you design a beautiful plate where just by looking at the place, you say, how handsome that plays, you know? We have done a play for instance. And then we took off the glaze from the edge and revealed the material. And it looks terrific. And so it is a decorative element that is worth no need, structurally. There is no need for anything else why we did it because it adds something by subtracting. I want to talk a little bit about logo design and corporate identity. Today, United Airlines revealed their new identity after their merge with continental airlines. And their new identity is a bit of a mash up of the united name. And the continental mark. And you have very strong opinions as we would expect of identity design. You've said that, perhaps, because you grew up in a country where history and vernacular architecture were part of the culture of the territory and was protected by considered established logos something to be equally protected. A logo gradually becomes part of our collective culture in its modest way it becomes part of all of us. So what do you think of the way that identity design is approach now we have two giant airlines United Airlines continental United has a mark and a name continental has a mork in a name and now the merger of the companies is, let's take one of the marks and one of the names and mash it up together. That's marketing. These are the solutions brought for by marketing people, which have no imagination whatsoever as a general categories, despised them. But there might be some great marketing men here and there, but there's a category I really despise them. They are the master of this kind of thing. They are mongrels in they make this kind of a mix without which has the solution whatsoever. Sometimes the solution is very easy. I mean, when Simba and guy, the two gigantic pharmaceutical company got together, they called me to see what to do with their logo. And at the end, I said, listen, Simba has a great image. It's a great image. Why do you want to destroy all this with a new logo? And they went on for many years. Until some stupid marketing guy came around and says, we need a new name. And that's when Novartis came about. Novartis, I mean, it's ridiculous, not even good for a paint, you know? And you give it to the too much dignified or embedded dignified pharmaceutical companies. You see, this is the typical thing that I had despised like kind of mind, you know. Same as the United continental two great airline. What's wrong about writing the United continental? One of these days, we're going to see united. As long as they don't touch American, right? Yeah, exactly. Is the American Airlines? I can't believe it. It survives so long, but it's a damn good that it's no surprise..

"A definite appeal to the masses and therefore they supply the market with a continuous flow of crude and vulgar design. I consider this criminal since producing visual pollution that is degrading our environment is just like all other types of pollution. I love to hear you reading it. It sounds even better. Sure, I believe very strongly about that. And I literally think he's a crime is where did I use intentionally because I think, you know, killing culture is now less of a crime than killing people. Because it kills their mind and their spirit. But of course, if we would have to put in prison people they do this kind of crime. It will be too small as a prison. A design prison. They have to look at bad design all day as their punishment. Now, but it's true. Marketing people look down to people instead a good designer or a good or a good responsible client looks up to people understand these function of contributing taking people out from those low levels and getting in them to a better level, just like when you give a good book to a person, so they will not have the time to read the bad book. In a sense, you know. And that is the operation. One has to believe, of course, you know, in these religious factors of education. In aerodynamic factor of north spreading vulgarity because that lowers the level, the more you spend the more level goes down instead the out operation is designed at an architect is to raise them a situation so that the world might get a little better place. And increase the good values. Make a better food instead of a junky food, you know, it's part of this same idea, making good music instead of a bad music is part of the same concept as making good designs. The bad design is the commercial design. There's commercial music. This commercial design is commercial fashion. This commercial admitted thing. You know, commercial things are done by people. They want to exploit other people, and care less about quality. We are interested in quality. This is what is nice. The nobility is our life. Experience what your customer experience is with user.

"There is full very good design there are thousands of good graphic designers around. There was nobody at that time, which was a pretty good for me. But it would be for me very difficult to emerge today. You know, because there is so much good design as so much good design around. Do you feel that the quality of clients has fundamentally changed in the 50 years you've been practicing? Yeah, you know, it's very funny that really what happened in the old times I can say that. The only times and the old times they were very few good clients and most of the people were not aware. Today there are a lot of young people in the company that they think they know everything that they don't. But they're very adamant. And they're very commercial. They're very not open. They're not intelligent, they're not cultured enough, basically, they may be intelligible in our cultures enough. And therefore, the communication becomes very difficult, because they articulate their wants rather their needs. And that is a big difference. Particularly marketing people, you know, which are the corporate of everything which is wrong. Yes. And marketing people, they use their train by better education in marketing to satisfy ones instead of means. And that is the key thing. Well, you've talked quite a lot about this very passionately in your book, the vignette cannon, which is right now free on your website. But also coming out. In the printed version in the coming months. Yeah, well, in the published by Lars molar in the Swiss design, which pleases me to know and you know, in a sense, it pleases even more that is online because it could be read by millions of people. And instead, when a printer version could be read only by 2000, which is, you know, irrelevant. However, I got a very funny thing. I got an email the other day from some Russian friends that they translated the whole canon in Russian. Really? And they send me the online version, which is very funny because all in Cyrillic. And I don't understand the world. But gorgeous. Exactly the same type everything, you know? Now, what made you decide to give away the vignette canon for free on your website? I think that this kind of subject should be online. So pleases me very much that it goes around the world. I wasn't certain aspect in that kind of a response. You know, in the first month, we had 300,000 clicks, you know, and I couldn't believe it as a 300,000. What they're doing with it. But then I got all the email of people saying it's great and student, you know, spreading it around and so on and so forth. So I say, well, I didn't know that did such a good thing. So is this the first time you're work has been so intertwined with technology? Yes. It is the first algorithm is not going to be the last one because I really like that. I do like the printed word as well, you know, because it's there, you don't need electricity to read a book. You don't have to be a battery running exactly. You know, but it's very cumbersome. Now look what you can do now with the tablet. I mean, you go around, you know, with anyone on those Amazon thing, but his name is Kindle. Kindle. And you have a library that never ends with just one little thing. If you're gonna put all the books in the bag, you can move. Well, it's an interesting concept though. I'm surprised to hear you say that I would have expected that you would not be a fan of the Kindle because of the possibility that it could replace the pace. You know, I think we are in the infancy of that. I think the pretty soon we will have it. Already tablet probably is a size that allows a book or a magazine to be seen as a spread. But think the greatest thing about that, you're reading a book instead of just a picture of a building, you go inside the building. Wow. Architecture a book that could be is the real architecture. And all this becomes very possible now you turn the page because the dimensional the whole thing. I mean, it's mind boggling. This is all going to happen too late for me, but what a great world for the future generations, you know? Do you worry at all about the elimination of the printed page in any way? Or do you feel that they can coexist? No, I think the good things will have permanence. So good books will probably stay, you know, as a printed form. Do you do a lot of design work on the computer or with the computer? You know, I is faster for me than a computer. I use the computer for writing. And that is fantastic. For the design, I have to rely people in my office that can do that. I can not do it. Does that bother you? Or do you? A lot to depend in for these things because my language has been reduced a little bigger a little more to the left a little more to the right. And it's a big reduction of language in this sense. Well now, all that, if I can do it myself, of course, will be much better. I am the only young people they can do this like writing in a sense. It's magical. Yeah, now you know, I remember when I was a 6 years old, you know, it was a big thing to learn how to ride. You know, 6 years old today can write in the computer. Honestly, effortlessly. And do all kinds of things, not just right. You can use the whole computer. I want to go back to talking a little bit about your feeling that marketing managers involvement with design is not always a positive thing. And you said in your book that we see design that has no meaning, stripes and swash of color, splashed across pages for no reason whatsoever. Well, they're either meaningless or incredibly vulgar or criminal when done on purpose. Unfortunately, there are designers and marketing people who intentionally look down on the consumer with the notion that vulgarity has a definite appeal to the masses and therefore they supply the market with a continuous flow of crude and vulgar design..

"To design matters, Massimo. That being is my pleasure. So you began your training as a 16 year old draftsman at the architect's castiglione in Milano. There you were taught the axiom of adolph lose at an architect should be able to design everything from the spoon to the city. I understand that it was at that point in your life that you decided that you wanted to design everything and first stated that if you can design one thing you can design everything. So tell me more about that time and what you meant specifically about that statement. Well, I said, if you can design one thing, you can design everything because the discipline of design is the same. Once you have a discipline on your hands on your mind, you can design anything. It's just a specific might change, you know. I think you can design graphics. You can design furniture. Same discipline. I'll design tables that look like a padon. And why am I not surprised about that? You know, there are quite a lot of theories about your work and the way that you work and there's something that I want to ask you about to see if it's true or if they are more urban myths. And of course, one has to do with bodoni. Is it true that you only use for typefaces, garamond, but century expanded and Helvetica? Yeah. And so that's true. It's very simple. People sometimes are surprised, but they forget that basically there are two kinds of types. Serif type and sunset type. So on the set of type, you haven't got them, which is 500 years old. You have bodoni, which is two, 300 years old, 200, actually. And there are things like cars loan like basketball, very dignified type, but I don't use all the time because they're basically very similar to the other two, which are much better. When you get to sunset if type, you know, there is Futura. There is accidents which then became elevator, much better. And then it's universe, which is much larger family. So usually between one of the three. So according to what we do, really true that we don't use more than half a dozen typefaces, but sometimes we use a mother's we're not so we're not fundamentalist in respect. But at times that we might use a fancy type too, you know, depends on what you have to do, but most of the time we don't have to fancy things to do. So that's why it limits also the use of Thai faces. You know, if we had to do any newspaper we certainly would look like what is available today for instance for better legibility and the right impact and the elegance that we like to convey whatever it is. And we're open but not close to anything. It just so happens that most of the type is junk, and since it's junk with rush it out. Now how do you define junk? Something which is trendy, which is not lasting value, something which is just phony and something which is insensitive and the details, something which is not elegant, which is not strong. All things which for us are quite important. And so we just trash it. I mean, we don't use it. Well, this is not to discourage type designers. I mean, the challenge of coming out with the super duper type is still alive, you know? It's going to be either to say for the sunset. But it's funny that what we see around very often is not satisfactory as the great typhus, which are resist for hundreds of years, like got them on. But don't need the best one. You said that you don't like to use type as a decorative element and that your horrified and you specifically use the word horrified that you're horrified by any type deformation. So what do you consider to be type deformation? Well, and it's anything which is just a deviation from a canonic type. You know, if you take castle and you begin to move it around or you know, or you take clarendon and plan on this quite good typeface, but very much connecting my mind with industrial revolution, England, 1830, 18 80. So if I have very English great for pubs, if you have to do a sign for a pub in a great British tradition, clarendon is perfect. But if you take clarity and start to make a square rather than around or whatever it is, you know, doing this little thing that a lot of times. You know, that I'm very, very few great type designers, you know, just like that very few great everything. Who would you consider to be a great type designer working today? Still alive airman's love for de guerre, a magic Carter is in very good one, too. And then there are some good less important and less big than as names in Holland in another netherland. There are some very good type designers because another line is always very attentive to this kind of issue. What do you think so? You know, that tradition is very minor, they don't do big. They do. The last time we spoke about typography, you said that you felt that at the time most typefaces were designed for commercial reasons just to make money and or for identity purposes. And I'm wondering if you still feel that way. Do you feel like there's been any improvement? No, situation was there a pretty much the same. As I say, isn't one way to make a living. So you can't really discard that. I mean, we will have that around forever. You know, somebody that doesn't have enough culture or enough refinement in his creative mind. It's possible that will not be happy with just a few typefaces and he wants to do his own. Not knowing that this meaningless. I want to talk about vulgarity. Well, that's exactly part of it. This is why it doesn't know. Because, you know, well, I think one of my major tasks in life was to fight as much as possible vulgarity, not to wipe it out. But at least to reduce it. Do you think that that's possible? Do you feel like you've been successful? I think, of course, not a single man operation, but I think that in the last 40 years, 50 years is a lot has been done to improve the situation. I remember when I came to New York, it was a very ugly dirty kind of city. Today is beautiful, it's clean. It's beautiful building. There was an architecture all the time almost modern architecture now is full of money architecture. All the big architects are doing things here..

"And now some of those interviews appear in print in Debbie's brand new book. Why design matters? Conversations with the world's most creative people. It's coming out in February of 2020. In anticipation of the book, every Thursday we're going to be releasing an interview from the archives. In addition to our new episodes that come out on Mondays, we thought it would be fun for our listeners to hear, not only some great interviews, but also to hear how the podcast has evolved over the years. So we're going to release the oldest ones first and proceed chronologically. In September of 2010, Debbie interviewed the late great Italian designer Massimo vignette. They talked about his favorite type fist. His fight against vulgarity and meaningless design and what he means by forceful design and design that is emotionally charged that it has intensity on whatever it does. So that is not only harmony but is provocative at the same time. Masimo vignette after the break. Thank you for listening to today's episode of design matters, sponsored by user testing. Stay tuned for later in the episode to hear about how user testing can help you with your new project. Massimo vignette is one of the great design artisans of our time. He has worked on everything from package design and signage to furniture, interior design and subway maps. He cofounded vinelli associates with his wife laila and clients have included American Airlines, the New York subway, Saint Peter's church, and many others. Vignelli has said, if you can design one thing, you can design everything. Welcome.

"Ourselves in the world what goals we reach towards and also how we treat other people while we do that so yeah i think it's a it's it's still relevant in in in that way suddenly pow does zero we'll start with massimo how does stoicism manifested itself in everyday life like give an example of A stoic tenant that would come up and you say okay. Here's here's how i do this. Well i really wanted. The most important warrants is something that is often referred to as the dichotomy of control which basically says that some things are up to us. We have agency on some things. Out of the things are not up to us our agencies limited or non-existent and a good life is made of focusing where you have agency and then trying to develop an attitude that community towards that for which we don't have agency. Where'd control now. This idea is found in the story. But it's also found in other traditions. It pops up in eighth century mini lemon century judaism and in twentieth century christianity Probably people have heard of the serenity layer which is early twentieth century. Gruesome prayer used often by twelve step organizations like alcohol economists right now. The prayer asks god in that particular case to give me the courage to change what i can the serenity to accept what i cannot change in through the wisdom to tell the difference between the two right now the fact that this shows up in twentieth century christianity is not by chance because christianity throughout the early period than the middle ages were strongly influenced by stoicism. It big titas is manual. Where you find. Original version of the economic control was used by christian monks as as a training manual throughout the middle ages except that everywhere mentioned socrates christian monks replaced at jesus but other than that. Mrs essentially the same book. Now how does that work in practice. Well let me give you just a very simple example. Little bit of trees example but the recent as you know we're still in the middle of a pandemic. Although things are getting better now for that i see are in half almost at this point. My wife and i've been mostly stock in apartment in brooklyn and at one point we figure out a way to deal with the situation and routines and all this stuff now at some point in the middle of it refrigerator brookdale. They go crap now. That means a number of things. It's not just an inconvenience. It means that we cannot get perishable groceries. We cannot store things for on time which means that we have to go grocery shopping every day there by exposing ourselves to possibly to the virus much more than that than was reasonable. This was before the vaccine came out. So now one might. Have you know reacting in a number of ways to both of us the economy control in mind immediately and say okay so what is up to us here and what is that. He's not up to us. Well not up to us to wish. The refrigerator didn't break it did break. That's it accept the fact and move on. There's no. there's no reason to get upset about the refrigerator. It's just not that's not going to do anything. What is up to us is to check with the building whether we can get a replacement refrigerator and building sat now because we don't allow at the moment deliveries of larger plants. Okay do you allow delivery of small appliances. Yes we do so. We ordered a college level. Fridge you on one of the things that college students have now. That'd be solved the problem but he made a better immense in meant that we could get some pursuable and then we shifted a little bit our diet to things that were nonperishable a lot of pasta and beans and stuff like that until we actually eventually able to replace the refrigerator now. This is a small example. But he'd sit in one of those situations which happen all the time in life. It doesn't have to be a big crisis where you are face. All of a sudden setback and the story mindset is instead of thinking of it as a setback. Think of it as a challenge and score yourself on. How well you're doing in reacting to the challenge turns out monon psychologists rediscovered this principle it's called the framing effect and the framing effect now studied from a quantitative perspective and is well established the classic example. Is you go to the doctor. And the doctor said your analysis and says you got a ninety percent chance of surviving. Okay now if the same doctor. Whoever says okay. I'll look at the analysis and you got ten percent chance of dying. Your reaction is going to be very different. Ninety percent survival ten percent dying is the same thing right and the same data but psychologically then makes a hell of a difference so the study figured out early on that you can exploit that effect to your own advantage. You can mindfully. Refrain things insane. Oh crap their virginia's now working oh good and other challenged. Let me see how i can do with this one. How can i solve the problem. So that that's just one example of how that affects my life probably leads to happier existence kazoo obsessing over the negative all the time. And you're just solving problems right right exactly. Yeah so you're it affects your mood. It affects not only just your mood and the way you perceive things but it also becomes much more practical because you need the refocus yourself on. What action needs to be done. The tricky part about the economy control is the or certify. If you will is the access to the things you cannot change with serenity. That's a difficult one because at some point not every problem can actually be solved. Not every problem you. Can you actually have agency. Sometimes life just sucks and you have to deal with it right but even their stores in tells you you know in the in the case for instance. The death of a one for instance. You're remind yourself that. Hey this is this is life. We are mortal. We all die there is And and the focus therefore they are should be not on the fact that you're missing now somebody because you wish that it were they were with you but the focus should be on how lucky you wear to know them in their life and how much of a good time you had with them. Potatoes wonderfully poetic fraser. Poets usually is not the key thing that comes to mind when you think about stoicism but but it does it. Has this poetic phrase way. Says that to wish for things out when they're not there is like wishing for.

"Group animals so Have an inclination toward behavior that works wall with others graft. That's right in fact that surprisingly the strikes had similarly the of course they knew nothing about evolution but they thought that we are naturally pro social animals. That is part part and parcel of the true things. According to the strikes that distinguish human beings from other species is precisely that we are highly social and capable of reason. Reason is the way in which we solve our problems. We don't have big claws muscles. We don't run fast. You don't do any of that stuff. We recent our grow problems. And that's why actually for the story. A good human life is in which you use reason to improve what they call the union cosmopolitan society at large. So they thought that this is a natural thing that's why their motto was that we should live according to nature. Meaning now stripping yourself naked and run into the woods to trees although there's nothing wrong with that but but but use debasing elements of humanity and build on them because they thought that nature gives us a seneca one of the most important stoic writers said nature gives us the beginnings of virtue and then reason allows us to extrapolate it now as a modern bruce showing biology. So i would say yes. We have pretty good evidence. That human beings are one of a number of species of social primates. We do have immortal instinct that if you if you want to put it that way but the moral instant is not enough in modern societies. Why while because hundreds of thousands of years we have all been very small bands of of forty six individuals who were mostly related to each other. And so that's one kind of social to solve them. Now we live in live in china metropolis of eight million people. And i don't know most of them. They're not my relatives so there has to be different ways of doing things but those different ways which are made possible by reasoning through problems at a societal level. I still based on a natural instinct to be social we recognize at a gut level that hey these are other human beings like me and they have the same needs and the same that i have. The existential consective comes firm at a at at this from a slightly different angle and they don't go much into biology instincts. But what they do say is that to be human involves holding ourselves in question and a volt holding the world in question and are very much focused on unfreedom and fulfilling life is one in which where free to pursue things that we find authentic and meaningful and fulfilling and flare free from oppression but also wanting which we exercise our freedom responsibly. Because muslim saying they've been a welder a few billion people and their by virtue of that coexistence. We need to figure out like how to get along with them. Like that thoughts of people other fats of our existence and so we need to acknowledge our interconnectedness that we share the same human condition inside. It's our responsibility to to actually get along with other people. So do think sky that is existentialism which is of course much newer than stoicism. Is it more of a reaction to other religions and philosophies that were confining people in their behavior i think absolutely yes so i mean the core i guess ten until massimo r- or whatever you wanna call it of existential is in is that existence precedes essence so which means that Thrown into the walls. We didn't choose to be here. We didn't choose Situation that we arrive in but what they were. Most concerned with.

Put out center tanks their military armaments all all around the the edge of the of the boundary with with ukraine and for me this collision was close to an actual war conflict. It was stopped. Short of becoming our None of that was really out in the news. I don't know what year are you talking about. Recent or way back two weeks ago recent. Oh because they kind of happened. When biden was vice president. We have leaked phone calls where he says. Hey buddy. don't start. Starting but scrimmage up in crimea insane so it's the same problem continued to ago right. I hear you but that's out there were. There were dozens of videos of russian tanks going on trains towards the borders and russia's the move the tax for no reason. Okay so we got close. Nobody knows this but we got very close to military conflict in the area. I don't know how it will stop for now. It stopped but when they say you you'll be lucky if it's only the war with syria because of this well that is to like the syria. Ukraine thing is about like gas pipelines. And i mean you think they're related a little bit but yeah what serious more about gas and the middle east and israel asking the united states to get rid of assad ukraine is more about ukraine is a huge huge country which stands now in liberal in in imbalance between western europe which is italy france germany and russia. They used to be leaning towards russia. It was moved. Now after the revolution twenty fourteen was moved towards nato. But the rest of the says. Okay you can take recurring but you're not taking this part of ukraine which is full of russian. Speaking people were they correct. So problem has to do with the balances in europe. But not so much with the cast. Now that makes me ask about the big picture again. It seems to me that putin can play ball with international bankers. Just like the rest of them. And i am like putin has a history with yeltsin. Who was clinton's guy. Or whatever. Like i always wonder especially with russia. How independent are they. And i think that way about china to like at. What point is there. A club of elites that reaches into even those countries or do we really have a trilateral world where the gloves are off and we better watch out. I mean is there.

I think it was a limited hang out like i think they put it out there to get us all to put all our information on knowing that they needed to build trust to get compliance and reliance and they knew full. Well that they were they could then like censor it. I think probably now. This is what happens when was created in the ninety s. Arpaio demanding that i know. I'm not sure that they knew what they were right. Okay well that's another thing that i wanted to ask you a path and is that again is is like another big picture thing which is like you said the past eight to ten years. Something like that. And i agree with you like it's accelerating its exponential. How much power concentration there is. And you're saying you're not sure that really knew what they were doing back then and then i'll go back even to the sixties. I tried to watch the rfk thing. The new dallas that you made it was so upsetting to me. I really couldn't get through it. But the sixties stuff what i will do it. Because it's just exactly the answers we need. But the sixties i you hear about the cia and co intel pro and glorious stein had a relationship with the cia. These people like mick jagger had a relationship with have stock institute. The kind of people i would think are at the top of the hierarchy were entrenched in stuff like the counterculture and i wonder how much of that did they set in motion or no they could control. And how much of. It was a reaction to natural sociological forces. I mean my question is. I'm i and i think we might agree on this. Is that the level of of control and micromanagement has just literally gone up exponentially that that there was some natural forces back in the sixties. And you're saying even into the ninety s now. I feel like it's total control. And that's what they're ushering in. But do you think that is it. I wonder how powerful these guys are. I think both ways. It's both proactive and reactive. Meaning they certainly have ideas very very dirty ideas of what they want to do to manage which does not to magically mean. They can succeed in imposing their this so they kind of put it out there and then see what happens so they push bush the direction in one way then the wait and see what happens and they correct their their their course as they go. I think it's the same as for example now with covid koby is in my opinion and i believe in many of your viewers opinion. It was a pre organized Absence station but that's one reason. I think i lost my job as that as soon as event to a one came out. I said buckle your seatbelts we are in for a ride and that was it was in atlanta. My show is in atlanta. Where the cdc as so yes we all know okay so basically. Yeah but that doesn't mean because just because it was preplanned it doesn't mean it's going exactly as they meant to go so this is why i say.

David Lappin on Sharpening His Poker Skills
"Have you been playing. A ton of poker certainly played more online poker in the last year than i did in the last couple of years. But that's mainly down to just having the the no travel time and the no live poker time. I sort of settled into free days a week. I just play Sunday monday and thursdays. Or sometimes i flick in a saturday. And then the occasional extra day off. But that's pretty rare and then by twice a year when you have a big series. I might play every day for a month every day for three weeks or whatever that happens to be and and yeah so that's been more online poker than played in quite a while which is good because you definitely feel. Sharp are particularly into the second week of lang every day. As so. i see that you know you. You feel the muscle memory comeback the brain engaging a bit deeper into spots. Am i generally mass multi table. Or i guess what would still constitute massimo tape these days. It's a lot less than i used to back. In my prime i was forty tabling.

Will vaccines make a difference responding to the next outbreak?
"I'm health reported teigen tyler and physician in journalists alter norman swan. It's the last corona cast of summer fridays. twenty-six yes. We are on the last current cost of summer. And i feel like i am. Maybe potentially jinxing us by talking about an outbreak. But let's talk about the scenario norman. Where if there was another outbreak in australia. Now that we've got vaccine in the country vaccine which we know is quite effective at preventing disease and infection. Would that change the way. We've been responding to outbreaks in the past year. Yes would and in fact. I think we were probably the first out. Let's talk about. It was called ring vaccination. And it's now part as far as i understand it over the national immunization or vaccinations strategy. So what you do is as you do your contact tracing you would ring-fence vaccination around the person who's got the disease and the people that have come in contact with and maybe even the people that they've come in contact with so primary contacts and secondary contacts and you would do that with the pfizer vaccine because you've got a strong response early and is only three weeks between doses so within three weeks you're fully immunized rather than the astro which might take twelve weeks to get up to that sort of level of antibody response and so a and it's a race against time so that you because the incubation periods five to eight days but what some of the research is showing is that you get an early response to particularly the pfizer vaccine. Maybe even the astro too so you get a pretty good resistance there early on so that would be a good way to respond to outbreaks prior to very large percentage of the population being covered. So when you vaccinate sometimes depending on the disease some vaccines take a couple of weeks before you get an immune response. But then there's other vaccines like rabies. Where if you get bitten and you think that there's a chance got exposed to rabies. They give you a vaccine then. Do we know what the fires a shot does. Whether it's the sort of vaccine that you can give after exposure and give you some protection while it is all about the maths which is the incubation period versus the time for the vaccine to work so smallpox that's how they controlled. Smallpox control smallpox by massimo. Certainly helped but in places such as africa they controlled it by ringfencing and controlling the spread from that and so they find they find a case a main they ring vaccinated around the person with smallpox. So that in for anybody who might have contact come in contact with that person was protected and in that case the vaccine for for the smallpox vaccine worked faster than the incubation period of smallpox. In this case it's lying ball but it's worth doing because it's likely that you would get a responsibility and you're doing two things by this ring. Fencing are ring vaccination. I should call it. You are protecting somebody against severe covid. Nineteen disease the second thing you'd be doing is trying to prevent transmission and you'd hope those two things go hand in hand is a bit of evidence from israel that they do but it's not strong

Olivia Jade addresses college admissions scandal that landed parents in prison
"And this whole college admission scandal and what she had to say. Yes, Bob. This is quite the headline here. I did not expect for Olivia Jade, the daughter of Massimo JIA, newly and actress Lori Laughlin to break her silence on the entire college admissions scandal. This is really the first time that we have heard from any member of that family since the scandal unfolded. Because you know they couldn't really talk about it because of legalities and and things like that. But now she has taken to Jada Pinkett Smith Red Table talk, which is her Facebook watch theories, and she opened up about the entire experience and recognizing her privilege and what she has learned from it. Of course, her parents both pled guilty in May 21 count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and they are Both currently serving their prison sentences on Her recognizing her privilege. She still doesn't understand it. But the whole point of her going on this red table talk was just to apologize, Acknowledge that she knows what she and her family did was wrong, and she's asking for a second chance. Now, here's a little bit of what she said on that show with her mom. Uh, Jada Pinkett Smith host the show with her mom and her daughter, Willow and the Libya Jade. Felt it was time to speak and definitely ready to address some things. There is no justifying or excusing what happened because what happened was wrong. But I think what's so important to me is like toe learn from the mistake not to now be shamed and punished and never given a second chance. Like I'm not trying to victimize myself. I don't want pity. I don't deserve pity. I never got to say I'm really sorry that this happened. At least it wasn't one of those non apology. Apologies where somebody says if I offended anyone, I mean, it sounded like she really did take responsibility. And she understands the severity of what they did especially, you know, not now that her parents are, you know, serving prison sentence. I feel like it's really Able to sink in for her. And so she she took the initiative to publicly apologize. Okay, Here

How We've Been using Community's SMS As Another Marketing Channel
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric. Su and I'm tall and today we're going to be talking about how we've been using community. That's community DOT COM were you've been using their SMS features as another marketing channel. So Neil, do you WANNA kick it off by explaining what community DOT COM is and I'll talk about what we've been doing. Sure. So if you listen to our podcast for awhile, you'll notice that the end of some episodes or even at the beginning of some episodes will tell you hey, Texas, and we'll give out a number of what's number. Is Three One oh, three, four, nine, three, seven, eight, five. and. I recommend that you Texas at this number. So you can get a feel of how it is but community is application that allows you to have text based communication with people thinking about how you do email messaging. You can do Massimo messaging you can personalize emails think of all those feeds looped in together in a from called community helps you personalize things and helps you automate things as well and that have your own phone number versus people texting like a short coder like that. So it makes it more personal than let's say someone doing a vote for American idol. Yep We've been using community for maybe let's call it a month or month and a half, and it's been great because we have a small group of people about two, hundred, fifty people and the list continues to get bigger. But when we're about to record, let's were recording today it's a it's a Friday what will do is we will text a group saying, Hey, what are your biggest marketing struggles right now or what are your biggest business challenges and a bunch of topics will flow through and I've actually dropped a couple of topics in here and so that actually makes our lives a lot easier. So a great for that plus people are actually seeing their topics live. As well, but the other thing we're doing to is were announcing when we're doing things because if we're trying to create a community telling people that, hey, we're going to be doing this live right now you guys can join us or let's say a meal both in La we say, Hey, you know we're going to be doing the meet up. You know it's going to be on us. There'd be doing the happy hour and everyone can join on. That's in the area that's core because it it fosters that impersonal communication. So there's a lot of different ways to use community but just think. Of It. This way your open rates when it comes to text messaging, I opened probably nine percent of texts that are sent to me. Your open rates are a lot higher and the the click rate has while I'm looking at our stats. You know when we send a link, it's like forty to fifty percent clicks rate. So the engagement is very high right now and usually when a when there's a hot new channel, this engagement rates are really high and I think more and more people are going to use it. I just don't get regulator not because I was talking to a body. It'll probably get regulators is the question of what I've already seen things circling around about regulations happening with SMS Yarka and I believe it because businesses aren't using like crazy right now but that will definitely change within a few years and then you're GonNa see all these rules and regulations of privacy concerns. It's like telemarketing. It's still hard core. Now, they still haven't managed to crack the code on that but for the time being there's a lot of different apps you can use out there community dot com one that that we use I believe they're investors are like Ashton Kutcher diddy in in in these people did tell you about the spam starting to get now on my iphone? No. There's facetime, right? Yeah. And the sad part is my email and phone number out there all over the web right 'cause like on social profile for so many years the amount of calls they get a days ridiculous on average publica. Forty fifty calls on any given day literally forty fifty calls from people I don't know and this is non like telemarketers is like people because it's in your signature everywhere right? Signature as well. That was like a million emails. Email, million people like you're GONNA get messages. But now, I'm starting to get facetime spam and you can see people just trying to face him in and like sometimes you can see like the email address has the name of based have instead of like a phone number, some really dating sites and I'm like I don't even know why just ignore it because I'm like I'm married I, have a wife I'm happy and like I know people are just trying to spam and scammy for money or whatever it may be but there's behavior here. For everyone just wants to make money. Yes. short-term thinking. But anyway guys, we think it's great for right now I think just use it in by the way the what the one thing I'll say about how we use to his were pretty non spammy. We send maybe one message awake and that's it. So we don't to send multiple messages. We just say, Hey, we're doing this and we'll say reply if you actually want the link and then we just check a bunch of. People that want to link, and we'll just send them the link and that's something that can be delegated to. If you happen to have assistance on your team, you could just do that and community has a dashboard that you can be using to. So Neil, I can give ask the Neil and he can give access to other people. So it's it's pretty cool in that respect.

Trump and 2015 McCain comments
"Donald trump is vehemently denying allegations made in a shocking Atlantic piece, which claims that trump refused to visit a US military cemetery near Paris in two thousand, eighteen because the fallen soldiers were in his words, losers and suckers. Now I say it was a shocking piece but to be honest with you not so shocking when you consider all the different times, he transparently brazenly said terrible things about members of our military who happen to disagree with him politically. But here he is denying it and then I'll give you what the facts are to think that I would make statements negative to. Our military and our fallen heroes nobody's done what I've done. With the budgets with the military budgets with getting pay raises military it is a disgraceful situation. By a magazine that's a terrible magazine. I don't read it by disagreed with John. McCain. But still respected him and I had to approve his funeral is president. We lowered the flags I had to approve that nobody else I had to approve it when you think I'm just thinking back. I had to approve either Air Force One or military plane. To go to Arizona to pick up his casket and I approved it immediately. So. Let's take a look at a trump tweet from two thousand fifteen because there's always tweet. This is from July two, thousand fifteen where trump referred to John McCain as a loser. I mean he tweeted an article about himself calling John McCain loser. So he was bragging about it also when McCain died in two thousand, eighteen trump refused to lower the White House flag back to half staff even though it's become customary for presidents to sign a proclamation calling for the flag to remain at half staff for members of Congress until the day of interment, and then one other piece of evidence to Kinda refute trump's narrative in that video take a look and I said somebody should run against John McCain who has been. In my opinion not so hot I supported him. I supported for President I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost he let us down but he lost. So. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like to lose. But. But Frank Franklin we're get doing. He hit me he's a war hero. He's a war hero he's a war hero presumed captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to tell you. That was from twenty. Fifteen event in Iowa. So. I don't know how to talk trump supporters anymore. That's why I'm done with them in my personal life and everywhere else because the guy. Ridiculous Liar. Does he know that he tweeted on John McCain's loser does he know he said on? Massimo you guys all remember when he said for people who weren't. But earlier, he said, I don't like losers referring to John McCain. So why did he come out yesterday and say no I never malsor. Each just unbelievable he's capable and so if you say, Hey, know what I love people who are Liars Okay again I mean do you boo okay. and. And look again. I. Blame the media. And Because So many politicians lie and they never call it out. They'd never they enabled politicians lies for decades. So eventually, you got one that. So over the top that even. Though. And remember you guys remember it took them like a couple of years before they finally gather up the nerve to say, well, what Donald Trump said, there was not correct. I'm forgetting the name of the CNN analyst who finally just said it and then went on this three minute rant fact checking trump. Fact checking trump's RNC speech but he started that three minute rant by saying trump lied he's a liar and I was like. Is. This CNN what's going on? And so yeah, you're right Jangling the fact that that excited me because it's so rare I think mean something and we'll get you the name of the person I'm talking about because he deserves all the credit I'm kind of blanking right now but look I actually think with this particular story and a few others. The media has done a decent job. So for instance, business insider had a very lengthy list highlighting all the different times, Donald trump attacked members of the military right and fallen soldiers. So I wanna read a few of them right now in fact, as you guys can probably remember in July of two thousand, sixteen trump attacked the family of captain who mine con a slain soldier someone who died. Fighting for the country dismissing a speech his father Kaiser Khan made because he said Khan's mother hadn't been allowed to speak the family said she had not spoken because she too emotional to talk about her son's death. And he just kept going after that family. It was it was honestly disgusting in October of two thousand seventeen trump forgot the name of slain US Army Sergeant La- David Johnson while he was on the phone with his widow, Johnson was killed in an ambush in. Niger. While while in active service. Misha. Johnson said the call was trump made her cry and trump told her that her husband knew would he had signed up for in November of two thousand Eighteen Fox News is Chris Wallace asked trump about his thoughts on retired Admiral William mcraven a former navy seal been. who was behind the mission that killed Osama bin. Laden. He interrupted Wallace and said Hillary Clinton. Fan. When Wallace continued trump did to excuse me Hillary Clinton Fan trump went on to repeat that mcraven supported Clinton which by the way he hadn't as well as former President Barack Obama and said frankly wouldn't have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that. I mean, there's so many more examples Jank but I mean I want to give you an opportunity to respond to some of them. By the way Daniel Dale is the CNN reporter that I was referring to earlier go ahead. So we've seen him call the generals, losers, thousands of times and so. I guess people are shocked at that. He would go and call the fallen soldiers losers as well, and not just stop a general's or veterans or captured soldiers. But is it really shy at all? He calls everybody lose them in his denial. He called the military people who were the sources for this story lowlifes and liars. If you're trying to deny that you'd ever call anybody in the military losers you shouldn't then turn around in your denial and call them lowlifes. Buyers. So I look. Landing brokers story with four sources. Then Washington Post back it up with three sources and the Associated Press also found sources all saying the same thing. I actually want to read a few excerpts from the Washington Post piece. Again, these aren't the same sources. These are additional sources who also spoke to the Washington Post about. Their experience with trump and what he had to say about fallen soldiers in one account. The president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such a high value on finding. Oh. This is so disgusting finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught in deserved what they got according to a person familiar with the discussion. Okay. That That part of the story like I don't know all of it is gross but that part hit me the hardest because he just doesn't value people's lives and think about losing a family member that way and knowing that the president of the United States does not care to find their bodies. A trump believes people who served in Vietnam War must be losers. They hadn't gotten out of it according to a person familiar with the comments. Trump also complained bitterly to then chief of staff, John Kelly that he didn't understand why Kelly and others in the military treated. McCain, who had been imprisoned and tortured during the Vietnam War with such reverence isn't he kind of a loser? Trump asked according to a person familiar with trump's comments. So. Look at Donald Trump says, this is outrageous synonymous sources. Donald Trump also, just a couple of days ago said that there was a plane full of thugs who are gonNA come and disturb. His, acceptance speech and caused violence and when asked, who told you that he said? I can't tell you basically it's anonymous. So. I'm supposed to believe your anonymous source of a trust me to go. You would know trust me. But we're not supposed to believe now it looks like about a half, a dozen military sources for that talked to three different publications all saying the same thing and all saying things that are very similar to what you said before and by the way yesterday show before the Washington Post Associated Press stories came out I said I guarantee you. that. He thinks that they're suckers 'cause he out of be fake doctor's note because his daddy bottom one and he thinks they're suckers for not being able to get out of the war his spoil less and it turns out. That's exactly what he said according to the military sources that heard him say. And remember when sources are anonymous to the general public that doesn't mean that there are anonymous to the reporters. Reporters have to vet their anonymous sources and corroborate what they're saying So maybe they're anonymous to us, but they're not anonymous to the reporters.

"massimo" Discussed on WGN Radio
"Lori Laughlin husband, Massimo, generally Will be sentenced to five months in prison five months in prison for his role in the college bribery scandal. Is that about right? Within five minutes of his Oum sentencing. On Friday, Judge Nathaniel Gordon said. I accept the so called plead that has been agreed to That is because I conclude that the agreed upon sentence five months in jail 250 hours of community service and a fine of $250,000 is sufficient. It's unclear when he will have to report to prison or where he will service time. His wife, Laurie, will be sentenced to 30 this afternoon. The government has proposed that she served two months behind bars. Massimo appeared with his attorney for the Zoom hearing. He wore a pink shirt into dark suit and was clean shaven. By the way, the famous pair paid $500,000. To get their daughters Olivia Jadon Isabella into USC by pretending that they were champion Cock, Swain's Shoot. How do you say that word toxins. Theo ex Es W. A. N s. I got an education on this, and I forgot what I remembered. They were among dozens of well heeled parents who paid for their kids entry. Felicity Huffman also took part in the scheme that was masterminded by Rick Singer. She was sentenced to two weeks in prison. As I recall, she cooperated more right. Um and it says here, Massimo will be sentenced. It said a plea agreement. Sensing hearing, Judge, Nathaniel said, I accept the so called plea that has been agreed to So I'm not exactly sure how all of that shook out. But you put up 500 grand to get you two kids into USC and you're going to go to jail and you pay $250,000 is a penalty. And you thought sending your kids to Notre Dame cost? Wow, I just remembered it's Cox. And by the way, I think it is right. I was saying coxswain, because that's how it's spelled. And what with me not being a fancy Ivy League. Don't run across that word that often, Coxon, okay? So maybe two months for Lori Laughlin, Lachlan. Whatever name is we'll find out at 2 30 this afternoon. What a bizarre time. I mean, really is much as people are talking about college these days. Ain't thinking about that one anymore. So many of you I've sent your kids to school this week. To the University of Iowa or depends state or to the University of Illinois. I issue Northern Illinois. By the way, I'm I'm always interested in what you're hearing back from the kids..
Britney Spears' Ex-Husband Wants Her Back
"Events daily pop. Hey remember when Britney Spears married Jason Alexander for just fifty five hours. Well, he wants her back now. Yes. They're right. Jason was spotted at a free privy protests at the courthouse yesterday he told us weekly. He still has love for Britney and he'd quote definitely the open rekindling their romance quote if they would give us an honest chance. Is he serious right now old what is furious? Is this heat in? Los. Angeles put that photo backup with the orange shirts. I can see that under boop sweat real quick. You know how hot it is in this Place look at. That alone. Look better though. Her he looks good. But I just like what is this guy I mean he clearly has nothing going on like the fact that he's GonNa show up even just give us weekly any sort of exclusively come on. This was how many years ago twelve thirty claims that two thousand four was when this fifty five, our wedding are. happened. They were childhood friends they got married very briefly. Now they've been I think in touch a little bit throughout the years I doubt recently my goodness. So the things he had to say about Sam you guys San has to be so livid right now. Right. So he said I got to see this code and he said I don't know him. He looks like he's in good shape but I'm in good shape. So Bravo to him she's got some type of feelings for him I. Guess I'm like Oh, my Gosh San if he ever sees you, he's going to punch you in the face. He's never gonNA. See Him this guy ever not a factor in her life, and this is the problem. What happens is even though he went there with good intentions quote unquote this just makes everything that Brittany's fighting for a spectacle and it makes it joke and if he really loved her and really wanted to be a part of her life and really wanted to help her, he would have stayed away from that camera and not became this headline. One hundred percent, and also for him to be like if they gave us an honest chance, she doesn't want you like I. Don't know who they. Does not she has no interest in rekindling your relationship I. Promise you that I don't know where he gets off thinking. Oh, if they just would just believe in our love like she's not petitioning for you bro at all, she's not looking for you in any day. Ever Gosh tell it like it is mortgage. Ed I love the. If a man sit outside like that for me I would feel some type of way about it in the. Sweat It's always flattering, right? It's always flattering to see. Talk about how he wants you back I. Mean it's Nice to hear whether you care or not of. The protest was held at the courthouse because there was a hearing about getting Brittany's data removed as conservative as we told, you yesterday according to court documents I'm really wants her care manager Jody Montgomery to step in permanently. So Jason has thoughts on that to telling US weekly Britney doesn't want to be under the conservative ship and he wants her to get what she rightly deserves. So how does he? Oh, how does he know he has not been in contact with her is will be. Governed from ghost talking to this man talent him where Britney saying he has no idea and Britney has said exactly what she wants and this for him. This was kind of a bold move because this hearing wasn't about changing anything this hearing was about let's check in. Let's see what's happening. The real hearing will come once they file papers and once she puts in court writings that she wants this change. This guy's making it worse for her get off her bag they offer not it's just. Weird. Do you think the intention because he wants Brittany back or he wants his own fame or he just was truly going there out of love for Brittany, and truly feels that she feels trapped and was trying to be a voice for her? What do you think I can't believe this I can't believe this is our Abe. Block. Are you kidding he therapy for fifteen minutes and it's going to be four because this is the last time we're talking about this. This is insane person. We have not heard one word about this person in sixteen years six I'm too hot over this. Crazy. You'll get the fifty. He'll get the fifty because what will happen is Cara Delevingne will see him on the news noticing that he's getting airtime. So then she'll date him to make Ashley Benson Jealous, and then he'll get twenty minutes. Oh my God. We're bringing car delving into this way. Okay. Well, let's move onto a couple that we've also talked about a couple of times before. New Year. So Tomorrow Laurie Lachlan and her husband Massimo are scheduled to be sitting for their roles in the college admissions gets scandal at the same time. The government's recently filed sentencing memo raises questions about what their daughter Olivia Jade may have known. So here's the new stuff. You guys. So Libya is never mentioned by name in the document, but they're quote. Younger. Daughter is referred to specifically prosecutors say in one incident Laurie Mossy Ma and they're quote younger daughter discussed how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme. So the family has not spoken out, but a source close to the family says their daughters had nothing to do with this. So if what the prosecutors are saying is true. That Olivia Jay did know about this do you feel she should be punished as well as her parents? Here She did no I just hello even if she knew or did not know she is a child and was a minor at this point in her life. That age you do as your parents tell you to do you follow suit you. You'd even realize the difference between right and wrong I could barely drive through MC. At that point by myself, give me a break. There's no reason that this young girl should be punished for anything like I understand her parents made a mistake we've been talking about it when I was reading the research is warning I was like for over a year literally been talking about this now for over a year and it's dwindled down to two or three months and five months number one. The she was seventeen. Leave her out of it. It's not relevant for her to be involved with the fact that their names are mentioned I get it. They need to be to kind of paint a full picture you do what your parents, how you to do. This is how we're getting into college. Sweetie you go. Okay. Mom just let me know where I need to be et Cetera not true Morgan you do what your parents tell you to do but let's say let's say you've got some awful parents right? Like I'm not saying these people are saying you got some awful parents and they say honey were broke I want you to go steal some milk and some candy bars and some cereal, and you know what? Go ahead and grab that xbox to they won't even suspect you. You're a teenager just go do it. Okay. If they get caught that could go to Juvie or get some sort of legal. Question. So Matt Your question. Your mother. Makes you sign your name on legal documents that puts you as a as the lender on alone and your mother then defaults on it ten years later should be. Held Liable Harris of thousand dollar loan that your mother made you sign for when you're seventeen or would you fight it? Well that's different because you would never have hypothetical situation that happened in. Dollar Loan. Drill, trust. It happens on sweet bitter. I just saw show where it happened. So where do you bring up that example? I agree with Morgan when you're seventeen years old if my mother would have told me sign the papers for this D to my kidney I wouldn't have asked two questions about it because my mother told me. But my problem is. This is the problem my judicial system we're sitting here worried about what a seventeen year old may or may not have known meanwhile Brianna Taylor's killers walking around free and the people who accosted Eliza McLean have not been nothing has been done to them. We know exactly what happened. We've seen the camera footage we've gone through everything. Why are we focusing on this and not focusing on what we do know?

Full of adrenaline my my body and I did all my three like nothing apple. You know like it was writing. Every day home, so these like the power of false? Yeah, I mean that's the best part about fray stall is rotting with your buddies and pushing each other I wrote a lot just on my arm when I first started and just watching videos and I think it took me six months to learn just astrid seat. Grab it so long because on your own you just. Don't get that feeling yet as soon as you with bodies. Everything comes so much either, so I guess you guys in Italy. Of really good team gone.

`Recipe edition, Massimo Bottura
"Famous shifts. I M Massimo Dura. I am the chef of Austria Francis Ghana in Heart of Modena Their Food Valley. My recipe today is this. It's pistol I always look at my past in a critic way and not in a nostalgic way and I always thought the pistol was too heavy and too oiling so once I was the referee Milano. I add the necessity to create a pistol because the people they want pasta. They love Pasta and So I created a very special best just following my mental pilot. I didn't have enough basil so I mixed with different herbs like time and mint was summer so the men gave some freshness to the basin. Basil meant and time together. Then I a classic grated Parmesan Journal some Extra Virgin Olive oil. A little little touch of garlic at this point. You need peanuts. But we didn't have any pilots and the pints a lot of money.

Lori Loughlin to Plead Guilty in College Admissions Scandal
"Laurie Law Clinton and her husband Massimo. They finally admitted they are guilty. In the college admissions scandal they reached a plea deal which significantly reduces their sentence. I was shocked when I saw this headlines. Were you guys? Surprised at all honestly. I'm just so relieved that this has happened. And that we finally have some closure on this debacle because it is been going on for feels like four adver and I also. I was very surprised. I didn't think that they were going to have such low sentences but ultimately I just don't care. I'm just happy that it's done. They're going to serve their time. They're going to pay their fine and we can just move on from this. We'll see in. Moore's ZANU extensive experience with studying to law subjects in College. Back in two thousand six. It wasn't looking good for these guys. I think this plea is the best case scenario for them now. The varney plead guilty to one of the counts each so the whole entire bundle but I think it is what Morgan said. It's the best thing for everybody in the especially the kids I mean. Did we see those fight is once again to remember the rowing fight? Don't remind us of the photos. They are a crime from seeing those photos. What's crazy to me is that there have been people who have had similar if not less offensive offenses. And there's I remember. There is a mom who received a five year sentence for falsifying her son's address so he can get into a better school district and she got five years locked up for that and these two. They're going to be doing a couple of months and they're gonNA have maybe two hundred hours of community service and You know luckily for them. They're not doing the forty or sixty years whatever originally was supposed to be But yeah very interesting to see that they actually said we're guilty doesn't surprise me at old. We have a bit of a flawed system. I feel like in this instance with them. I do think that bit and everything has sort of affected things and by the way. I think that it's Laurie. Serving two months in Montana supposed to survive. I don't think either of them are going to serve their sentences to full-term there's no way there's there's a possibility that they could get house arrest because of the Kovin situation. There's a possibility they won't actually do the time in jail. I don't know but the question is will. Laurie repair her image. I feel like all she's got to do is go on dancing with the stars and everyone's just going to forget about all of this because that is celebrity image. Rehab Redemption story works really well when someone has done something bad and committed a crime and then they lock all of a sudden. It's going to be great. Pr TO IN. A COUPLE OF YEARS DOWN THE TRACK. Bring them back up again. Audit will that to happen. It can't happen like that. I completely disagree with that. This is all this business on in its image. It's always about how you can. People are forgiving and I think that Lori is dead than going to be forgiven by the public. I think people again are so over this or this to be a two month sentence after all of the HOOPLA and all of the research we've done over what Aaron said sixty fifty one hundred years that they were gonNA spend vibrators. She's GonNa do one episode of dancing with the stars like Aaron said and she's going to do one lifetime movie and then I'm going to see her shouldn't say hi and everyone's GonNa keep it big put on walk. That's how it works. Welcome to the world of white privilege. Hollywood
Lori Loughlin's daughters shown in rowing photos released by prosecutors
"First things first without the Laurie Lachlan College scandal. Because there is new information out. There is new photos out okay. So we're getting our first look at the infamous rowing photos the daughters one that you see There's two photos it said to be a Libya. Jade and Bella both using these exercise rowing machine there among the exhibit submitted by federal prosecutors prosecutors claim. These are the photos taken by the couple to help get their girls into U. S. C. Just a reminder learner has been accused of paying five hundred thousand dollars to get their daughters into the school as a bribe in their trials scheduled it for October. They face a maximum of fifty years in prison in like millions of dollars in fines if they are found guilty. So new photos here. It's not it's the photos are not great right. Those are not good but to me. It's the actual verbiage in the emails that have also been released. That's where I think they're big trouble. Have you read some of the emails scripts near but we already knew about the emails scripts that we had already gotten bits and pieces of it. So there's no we really does good. He's telling his accounting good news. My daughter's in the USC bad news. I had to work the system. I mean that's like a full on admission yet but whenever you do anything they tell you do and work the system as best as possible. It's not about doing anything illegal. Working the system doesn't mean you know doing something illegal. He didn't say I did something illegal. Or I paid XYZ off. I feel like this is not as damning as we were told. It was going to be when we first got. The the proof of the pictures are the description of the pictures. It was paddles it was uniforms. It was these stage big. You know lit things and now I'm looking at this photo. I have three or four. Does in my own myself of me on a roy machine like this is that this is what Rick Singer. Who is that really work singer? He's the one who's been orchestrated this whole thing. He's the one that convinced all these parents to pay all this money. He specifically wrote an email to Massimo. Say Get pictures of the girls on an ER G in workout clothes like a real athlete as well like I say. I need this information for the PDF for transcript her test scores and then I need a portfolio basically saying that she is a rowing athlete and that it said it would help to get a photo on rowing machine. So they're complaining. The response was okay. Fantastic will get to you and then submitted that photo one month later so they did follow all the instructions senior gave him now. Does that show that Necessarily like yeah. You're right. Maybe not the most damning because it's all sounds or should by rick singer and they were like isn't GonNa get them off now. What defeated they were. But what might get them off because right now the case is no longer. Did they do something illegal? Remember Lori Massimo went back and filed a claim to dismiss the case because they said the investigator in Bullied ric singer into lying and also concealed evidence. If I am a lawyer which I talked to a lawyer this morning she said the prosecution. Put those photos out to distract from what's really going on right now. And it's the claim that they think that they will withholding evidence if a court in a judge and a jury sees that these investigators have withheld evidence. They could actually walk away from this. And I'm just we all know how. Pr Works we know when some heat's coming on as you know you just put out a photo here. Put out a photo there distract from what's really happening. I just think that that's what the investigators are doing. And it's not the photos that they said that they had. I mean I was waiting for like in a boat. I was looking for. Bodo of her in a boat with a panel. I will agree with that. I did think that the photos were going to be not just a workout clothes on a workout Roy. Wishy I thought Gary Agree. I thought it was GONNA be like fake like hails. The team that we were on Made it so big thought. The disposables are so bad but I think the problem is is that this is exactly what risk roofing are asked of them and he delivered it exactly And He seems to be whether he got completely fooled or he was In tuned to what was truly going on either way he followed the steps to get his kids into school that worked the system that went around the normal system right depending on how you know if they did withheld information withhold information. That really you know. Throw them off the court back. You throw a court system completely off. I think I think Lori is a very smart woman and so as Massimo and I think if they knew that there was no way to get out of this or when this case they would not spend the time the money in the resources on fighting this much but I have to believe that in their minds if they have an inkling of a doubt that this was done in the most professional way are that there was no malpractice when investigating something. They must know something they have to know something in Washington. The prosecution has not come out and said No. This was all done by the book. We were crude this in court. You will see every step of the way. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that I would fight to. Yeah I mean I think it don't look good for them. I think they make up and I'm a little surprised that they are fighting. This far the evidence is stacked against them. I'm really worried about them. I'm worried about and the sense of you know just you know. They deserve to get punishment for what happened. But I really like fifty years in jail per person like her parent. That's like insane. I would hope that they would never get angry Close to that not for something like this. I don't think they're saying they didn't do anything wrong. But if somebody told me if I kidnapped someone and then I was getting charged for attempted murder first degree murder. I would fight it because yes I. Maybe I did wrong but I didn't do that. That is the point in. That's what the judicial system is four. It's they come to you with a charge. Make sure that it's proper that's just I think that's what is now the main thing and make sure you go about it. In a in a real way in a cohesive way by the book we are. We are trial by fire. But we want something that's fair. That's what they're doing. I really do I will. We will wait and see again. Goes the October so kimble affiliates been so long I actually had to like remind myself I kind of forgot about this whole light. College emission scandal. That was the biggest thing that took the headlines last year. This year is like saying

US Ambassador to Ukraine said in closed door testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday that President Trump made nearly four hundred million dollars in aid contingent on the Ukraine in President Investigating Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden White House Press Secretary Stephanie Gresham said in a statement quote president trump has done nothing wrong there was no quid pro quo and we mentioned yesterday in our afternoon edition that Boris Johnson's Brexit plan passed a key hurdle the bill was approved by British lawmakers but that victory for Mister Johnson well it was short lived just minutes later lawmakers rejected his timetable for debating and formerly approving the bill that means that his goal of leaving the European Union by October thirty first is looking unlikely from London Jason Douglas has more on what happens next the first thing that we're waiting for is what the European Union says about an extension so Boris Johnson issue member had to request one another Europeans are going to decide exactly how long extension is on whatever they come back with kind of color what actually happens next so it expect them to simply do the UK requested which is graphic extension January thirty first probably with some wriggle-room that if you pass the deal sooner you can leave sooner and then bars Johnson says a choice either he goes for an election and I and I would winning a majority so that so that he can then pass the deal or tries to pass the deal I go into an election having said I did brexit Autumn will of course keep you updated on all the brexit twists and turns and two departures for you the first is Nike's long-term Chief Executive Mark Parker sure he'll step down in two thousand twenty after nearly fourteen years in the top job he'll be replaced by John Donahue who is a former Ebay chief executive we report that Mr Parker's departure marks a strategic shift for Nike it seemed strong sales but also been beset by a string of PR crises and Boeing's Commercial clean chief Kevin mcallister is also leaving it's the first high-level ouster from Boeing since the 737 Max crisis began Boeing reports its third quarter thanks today and analysts are expecting that will take more charges as a result of the crisis now our main story this morning it has to do with a new development and the college admissions cheating scandal a little over half thirty-five parents facing charges have played guilty but a new twist came late yesterday when prosecutors introduced new charges against eleven holdouts Charlie Turner has been finding out more from Melissa corn at the hearing and Boston Melissa Eleven parents who were allegedly involved in the nationwide college admission cheating scandal are facing additional charges what do prosecutors accused them of now so prosecutors have now added a charge for most of them regarding what's called Federal Graham Bribery essentially bribing an organization or a state or something like that that accepts at least ten thousand dollars in federal funds oh it's almost A quasi arm of the federal government so they can charge them at the federal level and this is as we say in addition to the original charges which I believe include honest services on services fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy so they most of them now have three charges against them know who are some of the defendants some of them obvious Really high-profile right so more than half of the parents have now pleaded guilty but there are still sixteen out there that have pleaded not guilty and they include actress Laurie Lachlan fashion designer Massimo g a newly former T G growth head bill mcglashan and so definitely still some big bold faced names here from your Article Melissa I'm kind of wondering this have prosecutors sort of struggled at times to make a case with as you write that you know they struggled Oh identified damages and victims in the case I guess with regard to William Rick Singer talk about that right so the prosecutor say there's definitely a crime here it's just kind of hard to explain why so the idea that this is based on an honest services fraud that there's you know the the these people are depriving the companies the employers of their honest of on a services of their employees of the coaches and things like that by having these bribe arrangements tough sell it's a complicated charge and the Probation Office when compiling pre sentencing reports for some of the people who pleaded guilty didn't declared that there wasn't a clear financial loss for the victims and the prosecutors say the victims are the colleges and the testing agencies so one of the reasons that they might have added this chart which is it offers kind of an alternative way of looking at the alleged crimes in a way that the public potential jurors potential judges this can better understand and wrap their heads around. I get the impression that cheating or lying on a college application is not a crime in itself no but there are elements of it that can be crimes if you're taking financial aid if you're getting benefits of some sort from the school of any value then it's fraud going forward what kind of hurdles do the defendant face in this case it's a tough battle for some of the defendants some of the defendants attorneys are saying these were just donations made to the university he's through an intermediary these were not bribes and that's the Line of defense that they're taking there are a few different defense theories that are now moving forward that's probably the most common and yes schools do accept donations and in some cases give preferential treatment to the families of those who donated but it doesn't quite explain the alley prosecutors allegations regarding these fake athletic profiles and essays that had false references to these ethnic feats so that's a bit of a tough nut to swallow against these defendants against these defendants yes there are again a number of different defense approach says here but for these defendants it's it's certainly not an easy when there's a reason why a lot of parents did plead already lawyers for many of the
Vatican Opens Door to Limited Ordination of Married Men as Priests
"Meeting of Roman Catholic bishops from Brazil and nearby. Countries could prove historic the Vatican today gave the bishop's permission to discuss whether married men in the Amazon region might join the priesthood here's NPR's Tom gjelten all that happened today.

Include discussion of whether some married men in an emergency conservative priests the bishops still have to debate the question at pope Francis would have to approve any change in the church's celibacy requirement. But just allowing the bishops to discuss it is shift from the previous attitude in Rome would crack down on any Bishop, any major figure in the church who dared to say the preschool possibly get married. Rocco Pomo is editor of the website whispers in the lodge.

They can't have a priest for weeks or months, which if they can't appraise that means they can have. Mass. They can't have Nash. They can't have Eucharist. Holy communion. The thing the Catholics considered to be the bread of life. If thing that keeps us alive. Spiritually some Catholic activists have advocated an end to celebrate in and the Catholic priesthood but John Gehring the Catholic program director at the faith in public life organization, says this situation is unrelated to that push coming, some, the church needs of the region affects on the ground on Amazon saying, this is an urgent crisis, and we need to rethink in this particular context. How we respond to it. I mean, this is not an advocacy group saying, let's push this agenda. Another point this would not be the first time. There'd be married priests. Some married clergy have left the Anglican church and joined the Catholic priesthood with their wives. That was approved. Nearly forty years ago by Pope John Paul the second and reaffirm by Pope Benedict. Still allowing married priests in the Amazon region because of an emergency there. Could set a precedent. Massimo fudgy, Oli theologian at Villanova university notes that priest shortages are developing in other places as well. Which means that every church in the world can request this Europe, America Africa Asia. So that could be the beginning of a general overhaul of the Catholic church is dealing with telly. A final point for hundreds of years in the early church priests were allowed to marry celibacy in the priesthood is what Catholics call a discipline, not a doctrine Tom gjelten, NPR news.
