The Reasons Behind Our Faulty Dietary Guidelines

"Hi, Brian, how's it going good Dylan Grades Swell. Thank you so much for making it onto our show. Absolutely exciting. So can you just tell our listeners late more about your background? Yeah. Well, actually lives nutrition twenty-five day for three years. I've been making a film I'm just all in I just read studies I watched lectures I go to conferences. My whole world is around finding out about health and I'm making film called food lies, which is all about that. It's trying to demystify nutrition nutrition super complicated right everyone has their own idea diet everyone someone who went vegan in loss late and someone did. The. They went carnivore they lost weight and they feel great houses even possible. So my big overarching goal is trying to get the average person to understand nutrition and eating and how to be health. Yeah. So I've been a reading about the documentary lies that you're working on and I think site were saying that you know the documentaries reading intended to cover the history of dietary. Guidelines the epidemic of chronic disease and obesity that followed from that on the new signs actually telling US humans what we should be eating and how to eat that food sustainable. Let let's unpack that actually one by one because I'm curious about what you mean actually when you talk about the history of dietary guidelines. Yeah. Well, there there's a long history there and actually I should say. I've been doing this longer than three years. I just spent three years full-time actually actually have background mechanical engineering and tech, but also had my own sort of health during my family I lost both my parents at eight thirty, thirty one to these chronic diseases from people eating the wrong diet, and this leads into dietary guidelines because we follow the dietary guidelines, our whole life they ate. The Food Pyramid we ate the low fat foods cooked food ourselves. We weren't going out to McDonald's we weren't. You know doing anything crazy. We were we were just making our own food and falling the guidelines and they slowly got just sicker as they aged and we kind of except that, right it's people like Oh. Yeah. It's like the dad body you know yeah, you're supposed to. Get a dad bought as you grow up, wait a second. That's that's not right. Actually you know and look myself in my twenties. I was getting that dad bod I didn't I have great health I was getting sick every once in a while I had just pudgy and now I'm ten years older thirty seven now and I'm in way better health than I was when I was twenty seven and it's because I went away from the dietary guidelines on way from the Food Pyramid and you know as the cliche goes you do the opposite and just to be clear like when when when you say food pyramid, that's something that was introduced by the Food and Drug Administration like what's sixty sixty seventy years ago? Yeah. Whilst Nineteen, seventy, seven, there was the original deter nineteen eighty. I. Think was a even more recent. Yeah. It started. Okay. So I will go into that. The actually history of it started around nineteen, fifty five with President Eisenhower had heart attack right? So this is the time when a lot of people smoking and a lot of these all these new vegetable oils are coming through diet like, Fried, foods and people are moving away from the national foods. You know they cook for themselves. So there's a lot going on in this time and yet he was like, Hey, what's going on why do I have heart disease and he had more heart attacks basic put together. The McGovern. Committee. Also in the in the nineteen sixties and seventies is one is all taking place and there was a guy named Ansel keys that was kind of tasked with figuring out what how does heart disease developed right and he looked any thought it was saturated fat and cholesterol is it that was his hypothesis and he did the famous seven countries study and there's a lot to that story. Some people turn a million times something have never heard of it but he basically looked at all these different countries in he cherry picked seven out of twenty two and showed this correlation where the. More, saturated fat cholesterol, the country eight, the more heart attacks died from and you know it, it's actually wasn't done well it it's correlation science not causation on he also cherry picked it and we look at all the countries he skips there was no direct correlation was all over the place and there was another guy named John Yetkin who had a competing theory that it was the sugar and the refined flour that was causing the problem and he was over in England and looking at all these different societies that just recently changed their diet than started adding a lot more. Sugar and flour and stuff like that, and they were getting sick. So that was his idea but he's won out eventually we came to these dietary guidelines like I said in seventy seven and nineteen eighty was food pyramid. Now it's called my plate, but it's all about the same and is kind of the same around the world and those guidelines to told us to what like eat more grains and less meat dairy or what was it exactly the Food Pyramid people don't even remember the food. The whole base of the Food Pyramid is starches and grains. You know it's like e. Eight to eleven, servings of starches and grains, rice, and Pasta and bread, and all this stuff, and then it was fruits and vegetables in the next level and it was like whatever five to six servings of each and then we finally got to the the highly bioavailable nutrient animal foods up up near the top and in the very top were you know backed sugar and oil I guess we're the very top. So yeah, this is what they put out to the world. They basically put the world's on an experiment unproven low fat diet and they actually said, what's the worst that could happen? The world on the low fat diet and you know how can be bad fat Scott would be bad for you even though we've been eating fat for all of human history

A Third-Rate Burglary Attempt

"This episode Lauren is a third rate burglary attempt. This episode is all about Watergate. I am so excited. I'm so excited and you know what? This is why you decided to pour us a glass of wine. To keep you entertained because honest to God, this is a lot. Old White men doing a lot of crap? Yeah. Well, cheers to that I guess. Here we go. SIP SIP. All right everybody laid on me. Buckle up. The Watergate scandal was a political scandal in the US involving the administration of US President Richard Nixon from nineteen seventy, two to nineteen, seventy, four leading to Nixon's resignation. So okay picture it nineteen, seventy, two President Richard Mille House Nixon was running for re election. The United States is still embroiled in the Vietnam. War. The country deeply divided a forceful presidential campaign seemed essential to the president and some of his key advisors All Right Act one. ooh. Ooh Act one the Watergate. Complex. Here's our key players here. Okay. We have Richard. Nixon. Who is the president of the United States and he is also the Republican nominee for the nineteen seventy two election tricky Dick Tricky Dick. Exactly. We. We also do have George McGovern who is the Democratic nominee for the nineteen seventy, two election although he barely shows up in the store you have to know that he's the he's the Democratic nominee. There's H R Haldeman he is the White House Chief of staff and you have John Erlich men, who is the council in Assistant to the President for domestic affairs? We also have the committee to re elect the president. Do you do you know what this? Committee is often referred to as. Is this like it's like the power four or committee to re elect the president. It is officially abbreviated the CRP, but it is often abbreviated as C. R. E. P. or creep References to that throughout this and creep is I mean yeah it works in this in this case citation, but it is officially abbreviated cr the committee to re elect the president. So in that, some of the key figures are John, Mitchell, who is at this point, the attorney, General of the United States and then he becomes the campaign director. There's Jeb Stuart Magruder, who is a business executive and the acting chairman of the CRP and then a couple of names eubank actually be promoted with G Gordon Liddy he's a former FBI agent and European employee, and there's also e Howard Hunt who is a former CIA agent and CRP CRP employees. All right. Here's the setting. The Watergate complex. K built between nineteen, sixty, three and nineteen seventy-one. The Watergate was considered one of Washington DC's most desirable living spaces. It was popular with members of Congress and political appointees of the executive branch the Watergate Complex actually a group of six buildings in the foggy bottom neighborhood of Washington DC in nineteen seventy two the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee was then located on the sixth floor of the Watergate office building. So the Watergate complex, it was intended to be a city within a city so it was supposed to have so many amenities that residents wouldn't need to leave you know. So they were supposed to have like a post office and restaurant and Jen concierge Oh sure gyms in the seventy everyone's smoked like chimneys died forty eight. Right that's why nobody who lived in the seventies is still around. I always assumed it was just like a single building I didn't realize it was like. Axe So? Yes. There was the Watergate Hotel there was Watergate West and Watergate East, which were like apartment buildings. There's a Watergate office building and there's one of their Watergate apartment building too. So it was a big complex It was actually proposed and built by the Italian architectural firm SGI. And one really interesting. The one thing that I found renders ing is the Vatican was actually a major investor in this project get how. So because of this, the Vatican was at one point part owner of the Watergate until nineteen sixty-nine that's wild. Yeah, right. Whatever the Italian I mean. Come on. The Watergate's popularity among members of Congress, and again, these high-ranking of appointees was very strong and so many members of the Nixon Administration settled there that the DC press actually named it the Republican, Bastille? Wows. Yes. So another group we have to worry about right now are called the White House plumbers. They are simply sometimes called the plumbers or the room sixteen project Jay were covert White, house, Special Investigations Unit which was established within a week after the publication of the Pentagon papers in June nineteen seventy-one. Okay. So the plumbers job was to stop and or respond to the. Leaking of classified information, the news media and just a quick refresher at the Pentagon papers which was officially titled. Report of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Vietnam Task Force was a US Department of Defense History of the United States is political and military involvement in Vietnam from Nineteen forty-five to nineteen, Sixty, seven in twenty eleven. This report was formerly declassified and released.

"mcgovern" Discussed on American Elections: Wicked Game

"For the Democrats and for the nation, the nineteen sixties were a difficult decade riddled with tension and tragedy President Kennedy was assassinated in sixty three, his brother Bobby. Kennedy was assassinated during the Democratic primary of nineteen sixty eight. The Cold War was still in full swing and turned red hot and Vietnam. Where over fifty thousand American troops would die in combat. The civil rights movement was left leaderless to just a month before Bobby Kennedy's assassination the Reverend Dr Martin. Luther King Junior was assassinated as well in Memphis, Tennessee after the tumultuous year of nine, hundred, sixty, eight, the Democratic Party was in shambles. In the face of widespread antiwar protests. President Johnson decided not to run in the nineteen sixty eight contest, his vice president Hubert. Humphrey won the Democratic nomination even though the antiwar Democrat Eugene, McCarthy had more popular support inside the party. The lack of enthusiasm for Humphrey was on full display in the nineteen sixty eight general election Humphrey lost to Republican Richard Nixon electoral landslide. The bad blood between the moderate and liberal wings of the Democratic Party would lead the DNC to create the McGovern Fraser Commission formerly known as the commission structure and delegate selection. This commission would result in a new ostensibly more democratic set of rules for the nomination process. Prior to nineteen sixty, eight presidential nominees were chosen by a combination of a small number of state primaries and large delegate selection process at the National Convention was starting in Nineteen Seventy two. The new rules for delegate selection put more weight on the primary process and effectively made the national convention a coronation. The beefed up primary system would take power away from the party bosses. The mayor's union leaders, local state officials, and give it to the people in the nineteen seventy two contests for the first time in American history the nominee of a major party would be decided in what President Richard Nixon called the fire of the primaries. These new rules created by the McGovern Fraser. Commission would spark a grassroots movement behind the candidacy of a Liberal Democrat for whom the commission was partially named South. Dakota Senator George McGovern. Like Eugene McCarthy in nineteen, Sixty, eight McGovern would run and seventy two on ending the Vietnam. War. But the Democratic Party bosses would not accept McGovern without a fight throughout the nineteen seventy, two campaign McGovern would find himself caught in the political machinery of both major parties. This is episode forty, seven, nineteen, seventy-two, McGovern versus Nixon failure comes easy at times like this. It's July nineteen sixty nine on Chappaquiddick island Egger town Massachusetts. Least chief dominant Jim Arena Fox's cruiser on the side of the road next to the bulkhead of dykes bridge. Cheese been called to the scene of an automobile accident. Last night a car reportedly went off the side of the bridge crash into the pond below chief arena approaches to young fishermen, young man and a high school kid who stand on the side of the bridge and cast Iran's. Chief calls out to them their car over there. On the other side. As the boy points in the opposite direction chief looks out over the water and finds what he's looking for the rear tires of automobile. Peaking of just over the surface of the water as the chief takes in the scene is is followed. The scuff marks that show the cars path from the road through the catalog barriers and into the pond below and chief see something else to a woman standing near the edge of the water she wakes up at him you ways back before making his way down low. Key arena misses mom I spoke to your colleagues on the phone I've just down the way. Earlier that morning when the two fishermen spotted the car sticking out of water they knocked on Mrs. Mom's door to let her know misses mom immediately called the police. Now you didn't see anything last night correct no chief I heard a car passed by the house though and what time was that round midnight. It was going faster than normal for that bridge. Did you hear the car hit the water? No Sir The chief looks at the car. Then up at the boys fishing bridge then back misses mom do you live here alone? Man No chief I live with my husband. This is an odd question but. But does he have a bathing suit I can bar Short. He's about your size come with me. After changing inter- Mrs Mom's husband's trunks chief wades out into the water I he notices the strength to the current. Then he notices the steep drop off at the edge of the bank. To get to the car, he'll have to dive in he calls onto the two young fishermen above. Boys. Do you do I? You happen to have a mask I can use On. They put up. The kid runs down from the bridge climbs into a punt Bo-, each on the shore and produces a face mask. To the chief. Here you go. Thank you. Now wish me luck. Chief arena way out to the edge of the bank. He takes a deep breath. Dive into the water. Chief arena fought his way through the strong current to get to the front seat of the submerged car. No sooner had he reached it and he was forced to come up for air when backup finally arrived the chiefs team a proper dive with scuba equipment the driver's seat of the car was empty. But in the passenger seat was the body of drowned woman, a subsequent investigation would reveal that the woman Mary Jo Kopechne was a former staffer for the nineteen sixty, eight presidential campaign of the late Bobby Kennedy. But the most startling discovery may chief arena was at the overturned car was registered to Bobby's brother Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy. Further investigation revealed the Kennedy was driving drunk with capacity in the passenger seat. Kennedy made a wrong turn onto a dirt road leading to a one way bridge his car skidded off the bridge and into the Pond Kennedy claimed that he tried to rescue capacity but was unsuccessful. Kennedy pleaded guilty to fleeing from the scene of an accident he got off light with a suspended jail sentence. But the nearly constant media coverage of the event ultimately influenced his decision not to run for president in nineteen seventy two Kennedy was perhaps the Democratic Establishment candidate of choice. But the chappaquiddick incident as it came to be called made, Kennedy's candidacy all but impossible. Kennedy's absence from the race made room for a host of well-qualified Democratic Hopefuls Maine Senator Ed Muskie, former vice, president Hubert Humphrey again and New York congresswoman Shirley Chisholm the first black woman elected to Congress among others. But out of the crowded field, the breakout star of the primaries was arguably the Liberal Antiwar Senator from South Dakota George McGovern. McGovern was a quiet man, a scholar while serving as a pilot during the Second World War. He had resolved that if he survived, he would go on to become a history professor. He earned his doctorate in history while performing ministerial work in the methodist. Tradition. By nineteen seventy-two Senator McGovern was staunchly Anti War. His position on Vietnam had evolved over the years. McGovern had voted for the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, which allowed President Johnson to deploy conventional military force in Southeast Asia without a formal declaration of war. But as time went on, he grew vocal in his opposition to the war he drafted the McGovern Hatfield amendment. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety attached to an appropriations bill, which was informally called the amendment and the war McGovern said on the Senate floor it does not take any courage at all for a congressman who are senator or a president to wrap himself in the flag and say we are staying in Vietnam because it is not our blood is being shed. But the McGovern Hatfield Amendment was defeated as a result McGovern became convinced that the best way to end the war would be from inside the White House but his candidacy was a shot with Ted Kennedy out of the race. The democratic establishment had someone else in mind Maine Senator Ed Muskie. Conventional Wisdom held that Senator Muskie was the natural choice for the Democratic nomination. He had been former Vice President Hubert. Humphrey's running mate in the nineteen, sixty eight election and like Humphrey muskie occupied the center lane of the Party. He.

Sanders on when he would use military action

"There shows a Bernie Sanders continues to skate without answering any tough questions despite the fact that he is just a personal horrible views it is just a source of endless endless insanity to me that the Democratic Party is preparing to nominate this human being it's insane the man is a walking a coexist bumper sticker is no Rothman over commentary but if the man is George McGovern exit more communist yeah let let me give you a couple of examples so Bernie Sanders let's check out his Twitter account his Twitter account is it basically AOC without the sparkling what it really is there's something he tweeted out it it's it's incredible it's incredible that this human being is taken seriously by people is unbelievable she tweets out our military is larger than these countries combined China hundred ninety one billion dollars has been flagged he flies I can actually identify China hundred eighty one billion dollars Saudi Arabia's seventy eight billion dollars France sixty one bit well as it is that which one is the vertical and first of the horizontal I Frances fifty two billion dollars I believe transferable Japan is forty eight billion dollars Great Britain fifty four billion dollars Germany forty billion dollars South Korea thirty nine billion dollars Brazil twenty seven billion dollars and that would be Italy twenty seven billion dollars Russia is sixty one billion thank you have a missile a Russian flag C. and I'm not working for Pune so what if we invested in human needs to care for one another instead what we invested a human needs to care for one another instead okay first of all I'm historical level I think it's a fairly good thing that the United States military is larger than Germany Japan Italy combined that seems like that's probably a good idea by just looking at some history but I'm very happy that the United States military is hegemonic but that's a very good thing Bernie is such a flaming communist it is like what if we book our entire military budget and we used it to pay off free child care and we just what do we really need a military so large we really need a militant and the answer is yes to stop people from killing us and attacking us and wrecking our interest the man is he's using the song imagine as a campaign platform I'm I turn does no countries it's not hard if you will try but nothing to live or die for adults only I thank hello how are you what the hell is wrong with you people and then he tweets this out together we're going to end the greed of the billionaire class I'm just a question to one question which is more greeting people will not cost you know people who created a business and then sold lots of product into lots of voluntary transactions and employed tens of thousands of people that provide products to presumably millions of people and a million people's lives easier or the octogenarian communist was down zero useful things his entire life except **** off the chief of the state and a billion or taxpayer and sponsor his wife for positions for which is utterly unqualified who is greedy I'm so sick of these of these people suggesting that true altruism wise and sucking off the teach of people actually burn is insanity this is nothing new in my income level I've been saying the same things as I was making like fifty grand a year okay I totally get it this is it this is an absolute it's absolute nonsense people buy into this it turns out that and we should not be a political platform that's all this is the greed of the billing or but when you become greedy stressors question like earnings of million did he become more greedy when his net wealth went to a million and one when I took her to slip up suddenly became greedy or is it the truth that is the founders understood all human beings have the capacity for greed and all human beings have the capacity for altruism and all human beings have the capacity for sin and all human beings have the capacity for decency but according to Bernie because a materialist Marxist he believes that as you get richer you get more greedy and therefore actual saintly nest rise in being a sponge right if you're if you're burning you've never done a useful thing you're like you're actually good you're going because you never been greedy doctrine or standard taking other people's money for doing nothing but you're not greedy because the only measure greed is by your material circumstance the richer you are the more greedy you are there for the poorer you are the less greedy you are and your personal activity doesn't come into this at all this is the person that you guys want a nominee for president all right sure

Breaking Down Bloomberg's First Debate

Breaking Down Bloomberg's First Debate

"Up on today's podcast. The ninth and possibly the liveliest democratic debate in Las Vegas. This was the first debate performance for Michael Bloomberg and the other candidates came out swinging. I like to talk about who were running against a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and no. I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg. It was also the first chance for Bloomberg to respond to criticism on the public stage. Here's an exchange with Senator Elizabeth Warren as she pressed him to release women employees from nondisclosure agreements that prevent them from talking about sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. I hope you heard what is defense was. I've been nice to some women. The mayor has to stand on his record and what we need to know. Exactly what's lurking out there? He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many finish. How many of them accused me of doing anything? Other than maybe. They didn't like joke. I told and let me let me play agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet and that's up to them. They signed those agreements and we'll live with taxes you know from all sides and just want to show everybody a quick exchange between Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg believed it Democratic Socialists. Working People not billion as healthcare for all educational opportunities. Chopstick we have the best known socialists. In the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. But I miss here. Well you'll still work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House too. That's good and like thousands of other Vermont. Subba cap to give me for that whereas your home which talks which tax haven New York New York City. Thank you very much on my taxes. And I'm happy to do it because I get something for. Bloomberg also drew negative reaction from the audience for his comments on releasing his tax retur variously transparency Mayor Bloomberg. Your campaign has said that he would eventually release your tax records when it comes to transparency but people are already voting now why should Democratic voters have to wait? It just takes us a long time unfortunately or fortunately fortunately I make a lot of money and we business all around the world and we are preparing. The number of pages will probably be the thousands of pages. I can't go to turbo tax but I put up my tax return every year for twelve years in City Hall. We will put out this one. It says tells everybody everything they need to know about every investments that I make and where the money goes and the biggest item is all the money I give away and we list that every single donation I make and you can get that from our from our foundation anytime you want. And this was Bloomberg's response to whether he supported Senator Bernie Sanders proposal. That would require all large companies to turn over up to twenty percent of their ownership to employees overtime absolutely not. I can't think of a ways that would make it easier for Donald Trump to get reelected and listening to this conversation ridiculous. We're not going to throw out capitalism. We tried that other countries tried that was called Communism and it just didn't work again. That was an answer that actually agreed with. There was some people who said that's not the answer you given a Democratic primary. That it's an answer you would give if you were in the actual campaign against president trump but that was the one that really resonated with me with. Yeah okay. Honest answer on that part of Ari Fleischer on twitter last night tweet aways going on saying that. He couldn't fathom how the whole Party that nobody in the party when they're asking their capitalism everybody's there with the exception maybe of Mayor Bloomberg I think Amy Klobuchar also said that she was a capitalist of believe in capitalism. But you know you know how everybody gone mad that this is just not what it is but by the way I mean Look Bernie. Sanders calls himself a socialist. Whether it's a democratic socialist or whatever you WANNA call the it's strange led a little bit of circa firing squad feel for me or someone said a gun fight in a lifeboat or something like that. But but what what I'm coming to realize is that Bernie is in the stage. Yep He's got grassroots. He Does Sport. And these people are gonNA turn out and if he just keeps winning and winning and winning. I don't know what you do. There's a difference between the democratic establishment and millions of of Democrats. That are voting for him. And you can't just say no. We don't like the way this looks so we don't like our prospect and who knows what the prospects really are. You never knew. He may have some people think he might one four years ago if he so. I've always been a Bernie Bro and BRO now. Well no Birdie Bro. If I had to pick I'm not sure at this point I immediately came in and I said to you this morning. What else you got sick Bernie because you think that makes it better or ascribe any type of weird and just let's is beyond her hand in a while snow but seriously that's the sixty came up. You got anything got anybody else you got it. We're shoulders Howard Schultz. Is he done? He's definitely divall Patrick and he come back and Bloomberg's campaign seemed to acknowledge his difficulty with this last night. I think he got better at the end to answer at the end was a fairly strong answer. His campaign said he's just warming. I mean the. What's the the reason the night? By the way do you know Neil Patel? We've had on the program. The rights that that Bloomberg is the gap that Bloomberg's performance the gap between an influence or marketing campaign and putting an actual product in front of reviewers. And I thought that captured beautifully Ashley happening here and I think it is online he. He's you know if you had sixty billion dollars you really do start thinking that you just might us man and when it comes to the woman whatever you want to say it but when it comes down when when the rubber meets the road you really do have to debate and you need to be good and fast and strong and all those things none of which and I started feeling. Sorry for he did. Have everybody coming after is not something we really happy. Start Feeling. Sorry for him. But there's an old adage in its most Jewish things don't ever feel sorry for someone has a Gulfstream jet. You just never never feel sorry for someone who has a g six V you just. Shouldn't I mean there could be things that happened? They can always fall. But you still felt sorry for. It'd be because as you know and I've said it a million times. Maybe he's not a great debater isn't clearly but if you look at what? I what he did in the city in the public sector and then the private sector. We're different we're different on what we think is competent and a nanny. State to me is competent. Well no no. Other major initiatives took it was. Well run under Giuliani to look at him now than in your eyes. I mean you think he's like a lunatic. Look let's just leave it at Bernie Bro- stick with that. He's in the center. He's at fifty eight percent. Something on League dictums on CNBC earlier. This week I don't know if it was yesterday the day before and I guess. He said that he thinks. Bernie Sanders bigger threat to the markets. Then they'd run a virus and your lights night's performance. You wonder if there's anybody who's GonNa stop along the way but the market and took the Marlboros. Go UP THE STRONGER. He gets because he's a could be another McGovern. I'm not I'm not coming out of my no. Well we know what you think but put the markets aside. Let's Talk Real Economy Bernie Sanders. Wins Your CEO in America. You're see on America's because this to me is really to one thing Mike Bloomberg was right about okay. Bernie can't win but no I'm saying if Bernie wins I think that every ceiling American not to Bernie San monkeys flat out of my reread to leave the set. Look by the way people can carry where he says the same thing trump right and even even two months before he won. People would don't really you don't really think that's the same thing. No I'm not saying it's health your honest opinion of what is Bernie's if you had to bet all your money on what. What are his chances for winning? Is it twenty five percent? Do you think it's that high winning? In general winning in the general we in the journey and the general third no more than you think a third see. I think that's I don't think it's a third what was weird less gets overwhelming at all. No I think it's I think in becomes very what would there have to be more. I don't know what would happen. He'd have to be the nominee and something else anyway. Joining us right now with reaction to last night's debate pollster and political strategist frank. Bunce FRANK WANNA get your action to all of this. I think the whole night was challenging moment. I WANNA take you back to two thousand twelve when Rick. Perry was moving three or four points a week in the race against Mitt Romney. He participates in the first debate. And he's destroyed and it ends his candidacy. I think Mike Bloomberg we will look back at this debate potentially as the beginning of the end because he did not come across as prepared and more importantly I don't think captured the tone of the audience that he doesn't understand that there are more women than men who are Democrats that they don't like this Aggressive behavior and I don't think in Blooberg defense of capitalism against socialism. He doesn't realize that. So many Democrats prioritize socialism over Frank. I WanNa ask you about the preparedness issue. Because he I know we'll say he only got into this campaign ten ten weeks ago but he's been preparing for this for a very very long time. How could he not have been more prepared? Well and what were the right answers to some of these questions? Well I so I want viewers to know that I did work for Bloomberg in two thousand one and back then. He doesn't like language. He doesn't like debates he doesn't like that. Kinda give and take that's not what he's about. The problem is it's what the Democrats are about and he should've known that these candidates who are going to take him on frankly. I don't know what the response is for the challenge about the nondisclosure agreements in terms of capitalism vs socialism. He's GonNa Remember. You should know that. The average Democrat is working class. The average Democrat is middle income and having a capitalism vs socialism debate among the average Democrat. Bloomberg's GonNa lose that and Bernie Sanders and the reason why is leading right now is going to win that contest. Frank do you believe Bloomberg will follow through on his promise to spend another half a billion dollars defeating Donald Trump on one of these people that just you know completely eviscerated him last night. Have you think once he realized you just said maybe it's the beginning of the end of his candidacy? He sees it. He's not going to be the candidate. Will he follow through and spend another four or five hundred million dollars on somebody else well? He's not done because we still have a South Carolina debate coming up and Super Tuesday. If you look at the state by state polling Bloomberg is actually taken the lead in some of these states doesn't if you said that it's probably the beginning of the end it was. Do you believe he will follow through and spend his money to defeat? Donald Trump by backing Bernie sanders or the eventual nominee is. Do you believe he'll do? I think Mike Bloomberg will have a problem backing Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren because he simply disagrees with them ideologically on their economic last night's performance by Elizabeth. Warren puts her back in the game in a way that she might not have been just Twenty four hours ago. I'm going to surprise you but my answer is no because I don't like Democrats attacking Democrats they want you to focus on donald trump but that's what Bernie Sanders has been doing so successfully and he seems to be the runner. And that's exactly. Why is the Front runner and Elizabeth Warren Attacking Buddha judge as well as Bloomberg? I don't think that sits well with the average Democrat. I'm will tell you know. Sandra has been attacking his his competitors in this race. No He's been speaking clearly and loudly and pronounce way in a position that for the center of the Democratic Party. And they like what he's saying and he is going to trump more than the rest of them I think last night was a good good debate night for Sanders because he clearly articulated a point of view that none of you may agree with but for the center of the Democratic Party. Remember this is not the center of America for the center of the Democratic Party Bernie. Sanders speaks to them. He's emotional he's passionate and it's the reason why he's now the front runner and what we got to run but what happens if if he is the nominee against trump given what you know given what okay. What are your odds for the first time ever ever on a TV program? I will say that trump will have the narrowest of advantages narrowest inch. Yes that's all that's all this going to be a brawl. It's going to be ugly selection ever and even though centers outside the mainstream the press will protect him. The media does not want trump elected. It will come down to election day. Okay Frank clots with an interesting perspective. Great to see this morning. Thank you thank

Plans To Develop High-Tech 'Smart City' In Toronto Met With Resistance

"In Toronto a plan to develop waterfront property along Lake Ontario is meeting resistance the area is supposed to become a so called smart city with high tech sensors and data collectors baked into the infrastructure as David McGovern reports many in Canada's biggest city are concerned about the company chosen to develop the site the company's name is sidewalk labs that may not ring a bell but it's a spin off of a corporation whose name is much more instantly recognizable Google here's prime minister Justin Trudeau announcing the plan to develop the twelve acre block of public lands called key side on Toronto's Lake Ontario waterfront back in twenty seventeen a world leader in Irvine innovation sidewalk labs will create a test bed for new technologies in kisai technologies will help us build smarter greener more inclusive cities which we hope to see scaled across to Rogers eastern waterfront and eventually in other parts of Canada and around the world just the shape and is the sidewalk labs director of urban design and digital innovation he's especially excited about the green aspects of the project like plans to build the world's tallest timber buildings soaring thirty five story curve structures of glass and high density would in the benefits of that are that stealing concrete which is the primary materials for buildings there are some of the most significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions would itself obviously renewable resource in itself actually embodied carbon innovative plans also include roads and sidewalks made of modular concrete slabs fitted with heating systems to melt snow and ice and the project involves thousands of monitors sensors and cameras on streets inside buildings and embedded in the infrastructure the monitoring of people's movements is intended to improve the efficiency of traffic flow energy use garbage collection and more so we're concerned about creating essentially a neighborhood in the city that's fundamentally based on a model of surveillance friend McPhail is a lawyer with the Canadian civil liberties association it is suing to block the development saying it is full of potential privacy breach is that violate Canadian constitutional rights particularly because betting technologies if the infrastructure that people don't have any choice about whether or not they're there don't have any control over what date it is or isn't being collected and have no meaningful way to consent to the information being collected bill says the only way to prevent that from happening is to completely avoid going to that part of the city she says that's just not fair but just the chiffons of sidewalk labs says this project is not about data harvesting or surveillance that's just not the business that we're in there's only data collected when it is truly in service of achieving a public benefit for example he says if there are sensors to improve pedestrian safety that would all be collected by the city of Toronto and since its initial proposal sidewalk labs has made a number of concessions including agreeing to hand over any of the data it collects to a government agency for safe keeping Torben widgets who heads the community organization block sidewalks remain skeptical the notion that we allow will sister company access to publicly owned land in the city of Toronto and allow them to develop you know new forms of delivering the services I think it's something that sort of strikes a nerve among a lot of people in front of so many people that the final approval date for the development has just been pushed from March until may this year to allow for more public

Love Chicken Nuggets? Thank Cornell Poultry Professor Robert C. Baker

"Future food scientists. Robert Baker was a boy when the Great Depression cut the legs out from under Americans especially early in the plains states where years of irresponsible agriculture practices led to the dust bowl. The Baker family which raised fruit in the summer and chickens pins in the winter. Had to get good at making a small amount of food feed as many people as possible. This way of thinking stayed with Robert through his years us at Cornell University where he majored in pathology the study and cultivation of fruit he graduated in forty three and went to work for the Cornell cooperative extension as a liaison between the university research centers and local farmers World War to increase the demand for chicken and the poultry. Three farmers had developed ways to grow their output including advances in genetics and feet but when the war was over the demand dropped farmers. Farmers didn't want to give up income by decreasing production so they had to find ways to increase the market for chicken from simple old timey market stalls to mid century injury grocers chickens were almost always sold whole which people were finding increasingly inconvenient as opposed to be for poor which came in cuts. Meanwhile Baker had begun to develop more of an interest in that aspect of his family's business the chicken raising he was hired by Cornell as an assistant professor in poultry science tasked with finally ways to encourage people to eat more chicken he and his team worked in a lab filled with grinders blenders and deboning machines jeans trying to develop test and taste new chicken products they created chicken Bologna chicken sausage chicken hot dogs and chicken patties. SHRIMP AROUND SUIT SHRIMPS DO SHRIMP Salad. Shrimp Input Titles Shrimp Burger Shrimp Sandwich. Last best westbound it. They also developed the broiler chicken a two to three pound chicken. More attractive to consumers and quicker to produce for farmers and found ways is to encourage people to eat more eggs. His most important achievement was a method that process chicken which allowed the meat to be shaped in any way possible. This gave birth to Baker's greatest invention. The chicken stick Baker in a student figured out a way to keep the ground chicken meat together and get a delicious batter to adhere to it. I put raw chicken and a grinder with salt and vinegar to take out the moisture. Then they added powdered milk and mashed up grains which helped to hold it together. Are they molded. The process chicken into sticks pros them dip them in battering cornflake crumbs and I again. They developed a package contested it at a local supermarket within six weeks. They were selling two hundred boxes a day. If I'm saying Baker invented the chicken nugget. Why isn't his name is well known as Ray KROC or even the McDonalds brothers? Baker didn't patent is chicken sticks or anything that he and his team created said Robert Grovonni Cornell professor who studied under Baker. He literally gave ideas away and other people patent at them. Plus Cornell had published the whole process and all of his recipes in the April nineteen sixty three issue of agricultural economics research publication that was distributed for free to over five hundred companies including McDonald's in nineteen seventy seven the McGovern report was released urging Americans for the first time to eat eat less red meat burgers took a real. Pr Hit and sales dropped. People wanted chicken and McDonald's wanted their money so they began to make their own frozen breaded chicken product using Baker's process though their shape circled the bell boot ball and bow in March in nineteen eighty. Fifteen Knoxville Tennessee. McDonald's debuted a new product the chicken mcnugget it set sales records and soon chicken nuggets. Were we're at every McDonald's worldwide over two billion servings and that can be anywhere from four to twenty nuggets at time are sold each year which is not doing us any favors withhold obesity thing and. That's ironic when you remember that. It came from a desire to make scarce food go farther. Though Baker never saw revenue share from those billions of sales he did get inducted into the American Poultry Hall of fame in two thousand four. So he's got that going for him in which is nice.

It was away but we don't really think of the thank you or the art of gratitude as a leadership skill set so everybody in your organization comes in contact contact with customers and doesn't matter what they are. What their role is? It's the fact that it's an internal customer or an external customer well whether it's internal or external those people like to be appreciated. They like to be thanked too. So therefore every conversation or interaction is actually a sales conversation. Everybody's selling every day. You just don't call it that any interaction. You've got with a colleague or direct report that's a sales conversation. You're selling them on your personal brand on who you are and what you bring to. The table and leadership does the selling at the highest level. You're doing this often to entities that are critical organization's success. You're selling the idea. Yeah of WHO This company is. You're selling the idea of who your team is. And what they bring to the table too so when you think about your role you've got to be kind kind of selling all day. But the internal communication is were gratitude can actually give you the most bang for your buck because grateful people actually want to do more people who are happy in their jobs. People who feel empowered are the ones that actually want to continue to do that because they're getting positive reinforcement from it. So that's what I mean when I say every job as a sales job including leadership because this is one of those opportunities that you're faced with every single day to be able to empower your team even more so I promised you a five set formula so i WanNa talk about the plan I now planning is the most important part of leadership leadership right but so often leader struggle with this because you actually to sit down and think about it. So let's just use the thank you part for a moment if if we're talking about showing gratitude to our teams. How are you showing gratitude today? What's something that you can share with your team to show them that you appreciate what they've brought to the table so you can explain to them how much what they did on that project or that particular client folder? Whatever it was that they brought to you you really appreciate and you've really appreciate the fact that they put that extra effort into it but you gotTa have a plan to do this otherwise? This is the piece that falls by the wayside. I can't tell you how how many managers I've worked with year after year. Who really struggle with showing the appreciation and when we'd done assessments with teams? We've talked to the employees themselves. That's the thing it falls by the wayside they feel under appreciated and it's to teeny tiny simple words that we got to throw out there but without a plan not can happen so the second thing is once you got that plan you can look for. Those opportunities. Leaders have a multitude of opportunities to kind of sell the. Thank you every day but again without that plan you're not really looking for your spidey senses aren't up and you're not looking for opportunities to kind of say. Hey I really appreciate what you brought to the table but you do have to keep your eyes repealed. This means getting off of your phone while you're walking in the hallway. This means actually reading into the emails and the messages that people are sending you pause breathe and think about what that person did that has really helped the organization to move forward and then show them that gratitude. And then you've got to establish trust you've really gotTa show the folks around you that you hear them and you see them. And this is one of the most heartbreaking parts in business right is when people feel like they're not being seen or they're not being heard and it simply because we move at the speed of business. It doesn't slow down and in fact if anything. It's speeding up now with technology. So we've got to show them damn that they can trust us that we have their back that we do appreciate them and that we want them to be part of this organization going forward without the trust of their team leaders. You you can't be effective but they need to know that you hear them in order for you to be able to have that trust goes both ways and then finally got to ask for what you want asking is a big piece of this to leaders have verbal as what they want and they have to be able to empower their teams to do so and then in that ask is also. We're also showing them. How grateful you are that? They are able to do the task. You're asking their up to the task that you're grateful that the report of this team empower them with gratitude. It's such a simple thing but it is so often left behind with that gratitude. That's really the final step. And this is where most really senior leaders fall down because we think we're showing our gratitude with a paycheck. We think we're showing our gratitude because we put thank you in an email because we did an office party. It's not Nov guys. You've got to show them whether it's victory or defeat you've got to be constant in your gratitude whether the company did great whether the company did not do great great. Everybody should show the gratitude of getting us to where we were today and learning from that and then showing gratitude is reinforcing the that trust is showing them and regardless you appreciate the fact that they put forth the effort and recognizing those problem areas as well as the achievements. The problem areas are the ones that we're learning from so make sure our team knows how much you appreciate them even making that extra effort and then it also shows that the activities that you're reinforcing with these guys and you're showing them him. How much appreciate it? It actually empowers them to want to do it more. It's sort of like if you've ever seen a little kid and you giggle it. Something that they do they do at ten thousand times more will. The reason is because we're hard wired that way as human beings we want those applause we want those accolades and as a leader the accolades thank you so another thing that I mentioned in the very beginning which was the thank you goodbye kind of thing and I think thank you should never mean goodbye. It's not a C- later kind of greeting or or salutation. It's not the end. It should be the first step in continuing that relationship and deepening that relationship and nothing comes after thank you. Nobody fills fulfilled. Nobody wants to continue to do this. Sort of that throwaway piece. It's like throwing the you know love you bye before you hang up the phone. It's just not enough enough and it's not really heartfelt either the thank you should be that ongoing piece of letting them know that I see you. I appreciate you. I love what you're doing thing and I really want to show you. How grateful I am that? You're a part of this and it's really that shift of your own mindset. That happens to be able to to throw this out there guys. I can't tell you enough. How important this particular lesson is for any leader in any organization whether you're leading sales organization whether you're an engineer whether the back office whether your client facing or not this gratitude piece is part of the brand that you build because if you're building this piece of gratitude it will permeate through through the company it will permeate through your team and then it will eventually get to the customer and people who feel appreciated want to come back? They want to show show you their loyalty because they feel that they can trust you. And you're being loyal to them so easy ways that you can say. Thank you during the day during the week during the month. Just communicate it. It's so simple. Email text voicemail handwritten.

Covering Assange

"For close to a decade, the ABC's London bureau has been covering one of the world's most controversial figures. The WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in recent days, he missed an extradition hearing in London, because his lawyers say his health is deteriorating. The US has charged Assange with violating its espionage, act and Sweden wants to question him over a rape allegation. So is the Estrela and tries to fight competing extradition, requests Europe. Correspondent Bridget Brennan looks back at how the bureau has covered the story this, argh Arriva, Julian Assange, has become one of the longest running global stories, the say, has ever covered humiliated, the most powerful country in the world. ABC tracked, Julian Assange is rise with WikiLeaks as a deeply divisive figure who inspired, both admiration, and fury. We reported on his battle from London to avoid bang cinch. The US light of this afternoon here in London. You can imagine this quite a crowd. Camped outside reporters with their in Sweden to examine allegations, Julian Assange, six release salted to women in two thousand eighteen came to Sweden on the eleventh of August two thousand and ten we covered his decision to seek asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy, where he remained for almost seven years. It's a very complicated process, Paul. What is happening is the Ecuadorian prosecutor has been here today. We're going to see any sign that all of Mr Assange on that balcony with him on some correspondent, sue relatively incremental movements in these on story while he was holed up in the embassy J foreign correspondent Filipina. Gms is saying every twist in tune fills, banning the bureau in London this week, I've been involved with it all the way along from the beginning from the first time that he was charged. I was at the magistrates court in Westminster. It's selling ago is two thousand and ten that the actual court doesn't exist anymore. It's been moved somewhere. Else. And when he first appeared, he had this huge country, several hundred people supporting him and everywhere he went he could attract a lodge crowd, including celebrities, Jemima Khan others that believed in his cause. But as time drifted by as those months in the Ecuadorian embassy became years interest dropped off people started to desert him, and I think increasingly he's felt more and more as times calling home. And now I was at today, there was a few dozen supporters maybe certainly ni- big names really? It's interesting. Do you think he was a divisive figure from the start a think that, that to do what he's done requires a certain personality? And he's, he's a very intense gov individual a couple of times. And he's very certain that. He's right. And I think that probably turns people off a bit of a time. So he's not not an easy. Personality, that's completely removed from any judgment about Hema what he's done. But he is a difficult personality. And I think that it's hard to keep supporting someone if, if you kind of have a separation, if you don't actually like him, and that is part of his problem. But in terms of, you know, the, the cases that he he's faces possible extradition to Sweden possible extradition to the United States, that's a completely separate matter. And I think we should always be very careful to separate, you know, those legal issues and how you feel about the man personally, I found myself in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago. This was my first time reporting on Julian Assange, it was he that Swedish prosecutors made the monumental decision to reopen ripe investigation probable cause to suspect that mistress Sange committed three an offense of the London bureau has also reported on Sanjay's health concerns for several years. Forty-three rolled confirm. His health had suffered while in the embassy. But did not comment on reports. He had developed he supported say. He's physical health is deteriorating quickly. Does it surprise you that some of his supporters, and lawyers, and now very concerned for his health after that time in the embassy, McGovern was said that if anyone was ever designed to be able to survive in seven years in a darkened room with a computer for company? It's him, but even even he succumbed. I mean you could see, you know, the effect of not getting sunlight in the vitamin d yet the have a sun lamp, he had an exercise but to, to try and keep fit. But it took its toll. You could say that, and psychologically, even he, I think, in a couldn't in the end tolerate that, that 'isolation. I mean his visitors started to be restricted. He's still had some a couple of celebs, it used to come and see him. Pamela Anderson as a big fan, of course and a regular visitor. You can't be stuck effective. -vely in one or two rooms for seven years, and, and expect to come out psychologically, undamaged. You know this man, that has dominated reporting life either. I've nearly ten years. And of course, now sits in Belmarsh, prison, and faces the possibility of the rest of his life in a, a US jail. It's his situation has gone from pretty bad being stuck in that embassy to absolutely die considering what he might face in the future. We legs describes his cases, one of major historical significance. The will surely be there to say how it all unfolds. No doubt about that Bridget Brennan with that report.

"And it took it had some role in ending the Vietnam war not completely. But as part of the role. I think the Democrats today are cowards. They are scared to death to look weak. They have ceded the high ground to the Republicans on foreign policy. So the Democrats want to be the party of healthcare and immigration and domestic issues. They don't wanna talk foreign policy because they're terrified of being painted with broad brush of being doves or pacifists. And I'll tell you when this started as a historian this started after the defeat of George McGovern in one thousand nine hundred George McGovern who was a liberal Democrat from. From the mountain west. This is a man who served honorably as a bomber pilot in World War Two which was the most dangerous position in the European theater award. The most dangerous job this is not some peace, Nick by nature. He served this country honorably, but he called for the end of the Vietnam war, and he ran in seventy two one ending that war. Now, he lost the Nixon in a landslide. Okay. And that is unfortunate. The problem is the lesson that the mainstream Democrats who still dominate the party, regardless of the new faces the mainstream Democrats who still dominate the party we're talking to Hillary Clinton weighing now in the Joe Biden, Wayne they decided after McGovern that in the interest of victory. They could never again be the party of McGovern McGovern. This wonderful man with this intense hatred for the Vietnam war, they decided never again will we run as the anti war party. Because if we do we're going to be we're going to be labeled with the brush of treasonous anti-american anti soldier and in the interest of winning. They went and what has become a neoliberal direction. And by the way, interesting you probably know this because if you're a store, it's but. George McGovern was an and the party when he led it was the phrase that we use to diminish and dismiss them was was that it was the party of acid amnesty and abortion, meaning LSD amnesty for draft evaders and Boertien self explanatory. Which is everybody assumed Richard Nixon, deployed that phrase against him. You know, where that phrase comes from, Danny? I don't actually it was coined by Thomas Eagleton who was George mcgovern's running mate initially until he was forced off the ticket because a revolution at revelations about mental health problems. But it was a democrat. It was a more centrist democrat who came up with that. Pejorative terms of the party's already had that always had that split within it of people who are willing to stand up against misguided military interventions and those who are not covered McGovern was not against all military intervention. Are you wouldn't have been you know, a hero as he was in World War Two. So again, we are talking with major Danny shirt, San Jose US army strategist. And but is speaking strictly for himself. I was trying to cover you on that as well. About about the military. And of course, you know, my sense is that this lack of civilian oversight. This lack of courage, and I would agree with you on the part of Democrats to really challenge. These these pointless and deadly wars in is a failure of courage, and we will be right back after this with more from major, Danny shirts, and Richard RJ scou- for the zero hour..

"Even if you're not a baseball fan. It's really about telling other people about our personal faith in our personal testimony George McGovern does that on a weekly basis with the New York Yankees with the goal of helping professional athletes professional baseball players come to a personal faith in Jesus Christ. I personally have had the wonderful privilege of sharing my faith with many many people and having some people come to a personal faith in Christ. And having the same experience, I have having their life change from the inside out my question, or my challenge to you today is to full first of all have you trusted crisis your personal savior, not are you religious not. Are you a person who goes to church? It's not by works that we have done. But by his grace. We're saved by transferring our faith. Ourselves and what we've done to what he's done his dying in our place on the cross and rising again from the dead. And if you have made that commitment who have you told who have you shared your faith with the greatest news in the world is that Jesus died for our sins and rose again, and that through him, we can have eternal life that we can be forgiven that we can have things like peace, and joy and so much more. Have you experienced that? And then if you have have you told anyone about it? It is the greatest news, and it is the world that is the news that our world desperately needs. What's the solution to the the incredible strife in our country? It's people finding Christ. Because when you know Jesus Christ. You can't hate someone else. You're a different person from the inside out. What's the the solution to the people who are continually dealing with? It's that personal relationship with Christ. Because when you have. Peace with God. You get a piece from God. That surpasses any understanding what's the solution to depression, and all that's involved in that. Well, it's it's a personal relationship with Christ. That's the the beginning staff and getting out of that that depression because Jesus gives us a joy joy, that's deep in our soul. No matter what we're going through. So I wanna thank you for joining us today. I hope the show has been a blessing to you. I know I enjoy doing it. And I hope it been a lesson you, but I most of all I hope it's talent you and please through the next couple of days. Be listening to the cabinet. He talks about the Bowery mission.

"To one episode all year, our employees you to listen to this one today of my daily tech podcast because after six hundred and fifty episodes, I really did walk away quite inspired after listening. These stories about a man named Patrick McGovern so much of what he stood for really, really resonated with me, but just to set the scene ide- is the world's largest technology media company, and they helped global audience make the smartest technology purchasing decisions. I grew up with the windows for dummies book, sequel for dummies. And in fact, any tech subject was covered by those books who were all made by g essentially, many of the ID g books transformed how we understand the enormous potential of computers. And actually start to think about how they could change the world. And here is where it gets interesting. Founder. Patrick McGovern was a pioneer in the information technology industry in his own way. He was equally as violet, Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, but he never sought the spotlight and many of his contributions opin overlook. Pat McGovern is the man who turned into a three billion technology media and venture capital empire, but he's also the ternal optimistic, put people and making a difference. I but kept himself in the shadows. I think there's something quite beautiful about that. Glenn Rifkin is an author and contributor to the New York Times who worked with Patrick McGovern very closely and he's sharing his legacy so others can learn from this inspiring man. It really is a beautiful story that really resonated with me. So book elope and hold on tight. As I beam your is all the way into the heart of Silicon Valley. So we can speak with Glenn Rifkin author of future forward. A massive warm, welcome to the show Glenn. Can you tell the listeners about who you are and what you do? Sure. Thanks for having me here. I am a journalist and author. I have been a business journalist for over forty years in the US and a lot of that time I've spent contributing to the New York Times. I've also written and published about a dozen books before this one, and I have written for many different publications over the years, but my focus is has been business through all of that. And there was a point in one thousand nine hundred eighty s when I actually worked at ID g which we can talk about as we go along. Fantastic. Now, I'm glad you mentioned that because one of the main reasons invite you on the show today was to talk about your fascinating and inspiring book future full it because when we think about tech visionaries and we speak to them about them on the show, but he will think of big personalities to stave job. Bill Gates, etc. But there is a man called Pat McGovern that never sought the spotlight and he's been overlooked for the contribution that as made to the tech industry. So can you just set the scene and tell both me? I'm the listeners a little more about Pat McGovern the minute turned ID into three billion technology media and venture capital empire. Well, it's, it's really the essence of what this book is about. Pat McGovern was as you just described the visionary who early on in the nineteen sixty s sauce. Something that others didn't see usually the formula for great success from entrepreneurs and what he understood was that information technology was going to be a world changing industry, and he also understood that somebody needed to sort of tell the story of this industry. It would be the doers, who were making things in those days. IBM was the eight hundred pound gorilla, but over time he knew there would be other players. But what he envisioned was a thirst for knowledge for fair-minded, deep research by very talented people who could tell the story of this industry as it was unfold. So he set out to build international data group, a company that was based in the Boston area in the United States. And while he started with one publication Computerworld, he eventually with a very clear half ahead decided to make this global entity and he eventually had publications in nearly one hundred countries, three hundred publications, several hundred websites as it became more of a digital thing, and he was responsible for building amazing brands not just Computerworld who was PC world and MAC world and info world CIO magazine. I don't know how popular the for dummies books are in other countries. But in the US they became ubiquitous that you can walk into a bookstore without seeing there that literally hundreds of titles. So he was on top of this real revolution

"George mcgovern we wouldn't have a national guard hard it is to accept the truth when we know the problems facing our nation very proud senator ribicoff he made that speech extemporaneously in cast aside is prepared but if there was ever a case of a politician seizing the moment senator ribicoff did that in nineteen sixty eight a violent disturbances some kind going on in the show i'll directly beneath this booth at the south dakota standard the arnold is absolutely full men are struggling with each other blows struck it wasn't exciting and fascinating experience the people who were there and the people watching on television listening over the radio there's no question that campaign had interest the national press corps is in their l all the way through that convention forcing our people that are go half a dozen members of the south dakota delegation being knocked off their chairs they were describing narrow spectators they're giving wisconsin mr jaren thousands of young people are being beaten and the streets of chicago who knew that that was one opportunity to get the microphone and so people felt strongly about the war they check the advancing the role to make a little speech on how important they thought it was the next time around we have a convention that's more representative of public opinion that was from my two thousand four conversation with senator george mcgovern mcgovern last comment proved prophetic the rules he and others in the democratic party helped implement after that convention ensure that never again would the nominee be decided by the bosses instead of the people to use mcgovern's words in fact four years later mcgovern himself would take advantage of the new rules win key primary contests and go on to win the nomination himself only to lose to president richard.

"Course the the freeforall mcgovern convention in miami when uh uh they have no control over leaked the masses in fact mcgovern didn't even give his acceptance speech till 3 in the morning prime time only in guam and and it from the beginning that was at a disastrous campaign and of course a lot of the the party leaders uh both notably mayor richard j daily of chicago we're not even allowed to be delegates and of course they went back at in dailies case of course they had taught chicago woods a very religiously had above the straight democratic ticket they printed up special ballots that showed how to vote the straight democratic ticket accepted the top and uh the rate democrats vowed that they would never let that happen again after their the forty nine state the duboc over that the resulted from mcgovern race so is this not in a way a call of fort for going back to two more if you will super delegates that is to say the the the voice of uh of if you will moderation the establishment of this sort of thing i know i think the super delegates are a terrible idea for the reasons you're just laid out they allow um a few empowered interest to tilt the outcome and they make it unfair for someone like a bernie sanders i think what the democratic party needs a republican party two is it primary system that encourages more people to participate uh the real issue in each of these primaries was that only very very small tip of the electric was participating primary let's make it easier for people to get involved in these in these primaries let's for example i'll give people multiple days to vote let's make it easier to register for the primaries it doesn't have to be the same registration system will use uh for election day uh let's find more ways to get more people's voices into the.
