"Borough idea affects voting vaccine passports and those kind of things or having a show. The vaccine affects going to the store or go into a restaurant on the football game. Everything so if you say that. That's racist than i will say that you are consistent because then you're saying any kind of identification is races for black people which is ridiculous. It's absurd absurd so stop saying. I know i'm yelling about the food. It just pisses me off. I see when i see the just conviction that white people have that for black people to get identification something racist. About what the fuck do you get there from. Honestly it's got nothing to do with being black nothing. Nothing nothing nothing. Sorry nothing absolutely nothing. Are you saying that many times. Republicans have passed laws to try to make it harder for black people to vote absolutely thousand percent with you. I'm in la and by the way democrats did it to democrats say for a lot longer than republicans. We're going to be honest about it racist way people did it. Let's put it like that. Are they still doing those things. Perhaps in some areas. But stop trying to tell me that something about my blackness prevents me from getting an id because it's just not true using to stop. The i hate when people fight fights that may be worth fighting but they used the wrong language to fight it so all. I'm asking you. It is to be honest with the words which is be effective with the words that you're choosing to have better fights don't use words that you think are images that you think just gonna stir people up emotionally and so the just get behind you vestige races. Everybody gets mad. People gonna follow me. If i say that it's racist because something's truly racist and they really need our attention but this is not one of them anyhow. I don't wanna get on a high horse just really pisses me off to stop it saying.

"Ken burns is back to talk about his latest documentary for p. b. s. muhammad ali which airs sunday september nineteenth on pbs in this streaming on the pbs platform I think starting then as well so you can eat the cat streaming on pbs for the next few weeks or so months or so in guys. It's really really good Man i'm huge mohammed ali fan. I thought i've seen everything on ali in. Whoa there's such a deep dive especially into ali's early career that this documentary goes into so much footage that you haven't seen any really get a great portrait of the man because he's such a mythic figure naso even if you're not a sports fan i think you will enjoy that documentary and i think you enjoy my conversation with ken burns. I do apologize ahead of time We had some audio issues We usually have zoom blink on these Podcast cadman i used to do these. Persons stupid pandemic. I've been doing them and zoom ever since and sometimes we just get somebody kind of calling in. I'm not sure what was. I just had an audio connection acadian. It wasn't the best you know. So i hope you're able to enjoy it. There may be some dropouts here and there. I apologize for that time. I'll do better you guys. I'll do better do better with technology. i'm trying. I'm trying to get people back person i want to but this stupid pandemic. It's so stupid. I'm so tired of this fucking pandemic graham really really tired of it. you know. i've had it with all of it with the people who are resisting. Ed the people who you know. Keep giving his confusing messages out there soon. So much of it where mass take off your mask vaccines where oops now. They don't work. Are we protecting protecting yourself. No you're not you're protecting other people. I mean so much of it just drives me up the fucking wall you guys and sometimes it. It just gets so absurd and let me just put out there i am. I'm vaccinated pro vaccine. I wish everybody would get it right. Some people don't get it for a lot of different reasons. You know and i. I disagreed some of those reasons. Some of the reasons i go. Okay you know. I get it I don't necessarily think the government mandated which was what joe biden said last december. I think they should strongly suggest it. You know i feel differently about companies and that type of thing you know but I don't know why people are resisting it either. You know. feel both of those things. They just doesn't make sense. But then also i don't wanna be overly scared for no reason to you know like i think. There's overreaction like there's overreaction on the side that's resisting for sure like people who think there's some voodoo in this vaccine but somehow trusts ivermectin these other things to get them well that was manufacture but for some of the same people these things. That's what i don't understand. Some of the same companies are manufacturing. This stuff that you think is great are manufacturing the vaccines because there's so many different types of seems to it's crazy and have you know places like san francisco which they're having a marathon and they're making the marathon workers put in the marathon runners putting their masks for like a certain portion of the run. Because it's more crowded in there fucking running outside san francisco. What the fuck. They gotta put on a mask in a marathon. He stuff like that drives me crazy. It doesn't make since. I have never ever thought that if i was going to run a marathon. There's a chance. I might get sick from somebody because somebody in that crowd may have flu. And i'm running through there. Who knows or that. I'm gonna give it to somebody as i'm running through. What did they think is gonna happen. I have no idea that just doesn't make sense to me. But i'm just i am just just pointing out. I'm more pointing out my frustration. With this thing. I wanted to end. I just wanted to end up tired of it. I'm tired of all of those motorbikers. Like bernie magazine ton of all of them tired of album every single one of them titled especially you covert most tired. You get the fuck outta here. Got him since this. But anyhow hopefully hopefully there's some hope in the future you know. Let's hope so. You guys in the near future certainly in the future but in the near future but like i've always said we have to be able to live with this. You don't deliver our lives with this especially if it feels like he's going to stick around for a while and be reasonable about not be just ridiculous about it to have some fucking common sense you know. That's that's i asked for some common sense. We go down that absurd. it's rabbit hole too but it just makes me mad. I really think something else that makes it as watching tv last night. I'm not gonna say it is. Because i like the person but i just didn't like what they said. I am tired of two. And i know some. You're gonna have a big disagreement with me on this and and that's okay. I don't mind as you guys know. I really don't mind. Disagreements disagreements. don't threaten me not at all as a person you disagree with me. That's fine in fact it probably means we'll have a great discussion about it. So i'm finally disagreements. Main people are threatened by disagreements. Here's a disagreement. I have many people on the left when they say especially in the white people say this really pisses me off that Voter id laws are races that making people have identification to vote is races. No it's not motherfucker. Stop saying i'm tired of people saying it. Just stop it. It is not racist and to see like somebody intelligence. And if you're saying that yes it affects some white people to will. I don't care about that. it's racist motherfucker. No it's not if you're saying it's classes that it. It hurts. Poor people fine. You know if you're saying some people can't afford identification difficult fine but there is nothing in my fucking black genes that make it difficult for me to get a fucking identification. Stop saying that. It's racist that there's something about being black that prevents me of the person from getting identification. In for god's sakes we should be encouraging people to get an identification then trying to cover for them and saying black people are so fucking two week. The anything that requires identification is gonna crush them. What are you guys doing. These black people the fuck. Are you going to cash a check. You can't even get around in the identification which are being urging people to get identification. Have trouble getting them but there's nothing about blackness that makes it difficult for you to get identification. Stop saying that shit. It really pisses me off because if you really believe that shit then you wouldn't be pushing these vaccine passports that people pushing in saying that you know you have to show identification vaccines because i'll tell you one thing. A lot of black people have more problems about the vaccine that has to do with their blackness and the government pushing vaccines on them then getting identification has to do with their blackness. But you have no problem requiring people to have that kind of identification just to do anything.

"Explaining it. Mr mohammed ali has just refused to be inducted and the united states armed forces. How scared was he were those around him as they were trying to go through that three almost four-year stretch where he's not fighting. He doesn't know what he's doing and he doesn't have any money. And i still felt like that's where the nation islam. I mean that the relationship is so complicated throughout his entire life. Where i think they were. Paying for some of it her mohammed. The son of elijah muhammad had started become involved Who obviously plays a big role in the management part of him. At that time you still have this louisville group. That is trying to figure out what to do the boxing side of it. Like how is he. How is he figuring out where any of that is going to go and then ultimately towards the comeback. Which kind of happens the way you write about it. I was like oh this was sort of like. Hey can we get licensed anywhere. And it's like. Oh yeah i guess we could do it here and it's like second. What the hell was the holdup ole time. Which i thought was a part that i don't know that i'd ever picked up on before. It's messy in. it's crazy I spent a lot of time with ali's wife at the time Colella who was sixteen when she married him and his second wife for a second wife right and she was with him when when he was banned from boxing and when he was home with nothing to do all day and when she had to go out and make money to feed the family and and she would drive her to to to work every day and then he would just basically sit around the house or many go out on some college tours and give lectures and i got the impression that you know. He was frustrated that he you know. He missed boxing but he still loved being muhammad ali. he loved Just getting attention. Anyway he could. So the the the college tours the broadway show. He acted in anything like that that he could do just to have eyeballs on him Made up for it and and and but there was never any doubt that like That he would make a deal As you mentioned earlier you know you had an offer. From the government to do some exhibitions and the way. Joe louis and a lot of other athletes did you. Don't have to fight in never gonna see a battlefield. They just have to put on a little show for the for the troops. But he wouldn't do it. He wouldn't compromise.
Author Jonathan Eig Discusses His New Book 'Ali: A Life'
"Book is ali a life biography. And it's incredible and the author of jonathan joins us on the podcast. We're going to kind of do an ollie specific pot here so let's start at the beginning just like the book does his family's two generations removed slavery. We know there are some history that none of us really knew about. Even he didn't know about about his own grandparents. He has a father whose abusive but talented. They weren't a destitute family by any means In their neighborhood louisville it was. It was a family that was probably doing better than some others. But i think the the foundation of who ali became as a person. How did he develop this kind of unpolished. Personality is non compromising personality at such a young age. That's really one of the central questions to understanding. Ali and i think it goes to understanding american history. You know when. I interviewed dick gregory for this book. He said to me e books not going to be worth a damn. If you can't explain. What made a kid from the jim crow south same age as emmett till think that he could talk back to white people and get away with it that he can call himself the greatest when everybody around him was telling him he was a second class citizen. You got to be able to understand what made ali capable of that. And it's a really difficult question. I mean it's really complicated. Part of it is that he grows up in. Not the deep south louisville thinks of itself as more progressive. There are some opportunities That wouldn't be available to him anywhere else For example to to walk into a boxing gym at age twelve and have a white cop offer to help him and to be to get in the ring and mix it up with white kids. That didn't happen in alabama or mississippi. But it did happen in louisville and so all of these things And the fact that his father was really a you know a fighter Not in the boxing sense. Which is somebody who didn't think that we should have to take the the conditions that we were born into because of this racist country that that That we live in.
Ted Lasso: Lessons on Leadership From a Fictional Character
"I for anyone who has the unfortunate fate of not having watched head lasso yet. What are you even doing people. How would you describe the character of ted lasso. So i think ted so is it shouldn't be a serious character right. This is a college football coach from kansas. Who is going over to coach. Manage in the english premier league. The whole setup feels absurd. Which i think is why the character seems to work so well because this guy is a. He's folksy. he has these things he will say. I mean come on. Sam was more open than the jar peanut butter on my kitchen counter. That's right y'all don't know. I like to keep the peanut butter open. That way whenever i walk back and just stick my finger and yet he has this inner goodness that i think when when he comes across people that they seem to react to you coaching football make. You are a legend for doing something. So i mean it's meno murdy well you know. I've heard that tune before. But here i am still dancing. Ted last. So is the quintessential mid western kindness guy. You know a guy who wants to do well in the world treat other people the right way and just kind of live life with optimism and kindness and all those like grape characteristics that we'd all like to have. Yeah i think it really is his relentless optimism. That wins you over in the show. Is there a particular scene in the series that you think really captures that element of his personality. You know i was thinking about this. In the first episode. He's gone over to england. He's been introduced to the media. He talks to the team. And everybody's obviously it's not going well and then him and coach beard kind of redecorate the office. They put up the john wooden pyramid of success. They put up. All these american touchstones like muhammad ali poster in the miracle on ice poster all in the office. And then roy kent the kind of the you know. The quintessential english footballer. He comes in the office and he calls him ronald mcdonald and i think he uses an expletive and then he leaves the office and ten lasso goes he thinks may now wait. We win them over if he thinks he's mad. Now wait until we win them over.
"muhammad ali" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"Got him most up. I would say that in his fights. Were joe frazier. He loved joe frazier. I mean i can't speak for his early early years. But i know from what i've seen in his later years he loved loved loved joe frazier and they were like you know best friends in their in their older age which is awesome so anytime joe frazier would show up. His eyes would light up to. Did you talk to him. I mean i'm sure you did. But like what were your conversations like about your boxing career with him and and what you should do. As far as getting into the sport you know i would just ask them for tips here and there and he would just tell me to like eat right and stuff and You know simple stuff but stuff that makes the difference. He you know he was huge on roadwork and he always said you gotta do road work. You gotta do road work. So i really always kept that in the back of my head and that's what i do now so i do follow everything that he told me to do still to this day. Was he in favor of you. Getting into boxing because as much as boxing gave him obviously sticking around a little bit too long kind of took took it away from him as well. How did he feel about you getting into boxing. I was hoping he wouldn't want me to get into boxing. Because at one point i was a not not ready to venture out down this long long road that everyone kept telling me. The pressures are scary. You know so. I wanted him to tell me. Don't box but every time. I tried to coerce them to do that. He wouldn't he would keep telling me to box so. I knew that i had to stick the boxing. Why do you think he wanted that for you. I wish i got a chance to ask him. Why i never. I never asked him why When when he would tell me keep boxing. I i wish i could have i. I don't know why Maybe it has something to do with the legacy I have no idea. I know because he didn't wanna lay litterbox a but of course that's his daughter. You know so i. I don't know. I don't know why he wanted me to box. Though did your brother was into boxing for a little while right no. He was a football player. Okay but i read somewhere that he dabbled in thought about it at the very least you. Were you the only one the family that that got into it. Yeah i mean my whole family has been has had boxing gloves on at some point. Just because of you know us being around my grandfather. Everything's boxing related in my family But yet no. I'm the only one in the family. That's taken it a to a level of competition whether it be at an amateur level or even going into a gym to seek a trainer when you're at these amateur tournaments and people realize who you are. I mean what kind of reactions are you getting are you. Do you feel like you're getting in the ring that as much as they want to win for themselves. They want to beat. Muhammad ali grandson. Yeah no you know. Some people would think that it would be an intimidating factor. You know saying. I'm going up against muhammad ali grandson. It's not because you know they have everything to gain from being able to say. I knocked out mahalia grandson. So i always got everyone's a game in the amateurs and it was very very annoying. A constantly being announced in recognized as just you know. Muhammed ali's grandson. And i should have picked a different sport if i didn't want that to happen but you know i feel like it would have happened regardless i mean it's tough like i've written in studied the you know the sons of michael jordan. You know like it's just. It's tough to kind of carry that weight around where everyone's probably expecting you to show flashes of what your grandfather showed like. They're expecting you to shuffle in the ring to say something bra ostentatious on the mic like. They're they're probably looking for it from you. Yeah no my first time ever stepping in the ring for the it was for saint ball drinks which is a children's cancer foundation and it was a charity of it was an exhibition but while i was in the ring the last round someone in the crowd. I think it was my uncle. My dad said do do. The ali shuffle. And i was ten years old and i did. The shuffle in my shoes fell off. I i mean that that's an example of how people they want to make me into. You know my grandfather. Well what do you do need go. I mean do you pattern your your boxing style at i mean there. They're worst people the pattern your boxing. After that we're talking about the greatest of all time i mean. How do you approach your your own style. How much have you taken from your grandfather and tried to incorporate into yourself. It was my choice. I would say i. I would love to emulate his styles. Same way he did because he had so much success with it but nobody can emulate his style to the t you know. It was his style. And i can't do that so i'm not trying to do that. But what. I am trying to emulate from his boxing. Is you know his foot work. He had excellent footwork. I won't even be able to emulate that To a t. but i'll be able to you know. Take some parts in you know Put in some of my own Flares and That's that's what i'm looking forward to is emulating his footwork more than anything. So you're in the amateur ranks for the last few years. When does it start to. When did start to come to you. Then you start to think. I want to turn pro. You know it all happened so fast. I knew that one day. I be turning pro Because when i got into boxing. I said i have to go in one hundred percent or don't get in at all but i went up to big bear with abel sanchez and i was training up there for a few months and that was really when it got serious and i said okay. We'll i talked with my team and then Than i turned pro and then signed with top rank and all this great stuff happened all at once. Really what what is your amateur background like. I don't even know. I have somewhere around thirty amateur fights but i lost count because my first amateur fight. I lost that. I remember my first ever Officials identified loss and it was in arizona so right afterwards i went straight to my grandfather's house and he was talking to me about how losses do not matter in the amateurs and i had a black eye and like a big nose and we just spoke on that. But that conversation made me realize that it's the quality not quantity of the fights. So i i remember the great performances. I remember the losses of and i learned from him. But it's it's hard to count how many i've had because i've had so many exhibitions and charity events before i even got into the amateurs i think your grandfather's proved that losses don't necessarily matter the pros either. It's all about quality of the fighters you up against five losses when you're arguing about who. The greatest of all time is whether it's muhammad ali or sugar ray robinson i mean that's five losses for ali nineteen for sugar free at a lot robinson. I mean it really is about the quality competition. I'm curious i've been. I've been to that that big bear. Jim where abel sanchez trains out of tough environment to train in. What was it about that experience that made you believe that the pros.
"muhammad ali" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"This is boxing with chris man who somebody punched him in the face. Joshua is composed and ferocious spanish. Watch this the happy hosted by s. Is chris mannix. That was my moments now interviews analysis and everything going on in the world of foxy. When you have talent you are given another chance. Here's chris mannix. The debuts of pro prospects are often pretty interesting but Few get more interesting than this one on saturday. Nico ollie. walsh will officially turn pro as a middleweight on top ranks card from tulsa oklahoma. Walsh is the grandson of the late muhammad ali to be fighting for the same promoter. Bob arum whose father or grandfather should say had many of his greatest moments with nico joins me here on the show nico is i mean i guess i what does this you. What does this moment feel like do you. I mean it's a dream come true to say the least. Yeah we're to talk to me about kind of your boxing journey here. I mean you grew up in chicago originally and how how did boxing kind of crystallized for you. Well you know. I've been around boxing my whole life just through my grandfather but i really started my first time. Stepping in the ring was for a cancer foundation it was the charity event and it was an exhibition. So it had no wins or losses and before that point i hadn't trained in the gym or anything and i just went in. I had fun. I was doing it for a good cause and I just. I feel like that's when i started slowly loving boxing. So have you. Was there any pressure on you. Growing up to get into the sport. No i you know. I didn't feel any pressure at all. growing up getting into the sport but i did always feel the pressure of being. You know the grandson of you know muhammad ali. I've always felt that pressure outside a sports in school. everywhere was i thought that pressure. It's almost like i mean. I remember watching what the rocky belbow movie rocky son saying like. You know what. I saw that i saw that movie and i was dying laughing because it sounded so similar to meaning the movie. Cre- yeah. I mean so people always asking you like you're gonna get into boxing or are you going to do it. I don't remember anybody asking me. But i was always getting compared to him no matter what so. You know if i if. I didn't pick boxing if i picked up a tennis racket and i was a tennis player or a golfer or even if i was something not sports related i would still be getting compared to my grandfather. Because that's the way it's been my whole life. Mamadali passed away in two thousand sixteen. What was your relationship like with him. You're young guy. Twenty one years old. What was what are your memories of that relationship. We were very close. We were very very close He lived in scottsdale arizona. And we live in las vegas so we were constantly making the drive Two quick drive down to arizona to see him. Whether it'd be for thanksgiving or you know just to go out and watch movies with them but Yeah no we were very close I when i was born all my other grandfathers were had passed away. Unfortunately already so. He was the only living grandfather that i had which made us even more close. What was communication like within because as many people know historian how parkinson's affected him late in his life it affected his speech. Yeah i mean you know some days. A lot of people don't know about parkinson's disease but you know some days are better than others and it really is a flip of a coin. One day you can get them talking and he could be vibrant and and you know talking would seems to be like the way he used to and then others other days most days He doesn't talk as much but that never took away from you know. His sense of humor is wit and his smile. It never took away from that. And that's how we communicated we communicated a you know through his actions to tell me about how how that sense of humor was around you most people that know. Muhammad ali know all about the trash-talk and the brashness and all that that came with it. How was he with you. Yeah i mean he. He says he says some stuff that You know people aren't supposed to say he gets away with saying you know basically whatever he wants but it's it's because everyone knows he's coming from a place of kindness and he's always joking so his sense of humor is was was great. I mean you could see it in you know. The videos interviews. He had that same sense of humor. Which i hadn't gotten to see because i wasn't alive during his Prime but he had that same sense of humor of in his in his older years. Gebre watch old fights with him. Yeah we would constantly watch All we would do is watch his fight highlights and then my sparring tapes but we watched on the rumble in the jungle. A million times over. I would just pull up a chair next to him and we would watch it on my phone but yet no i've seen i've seen probably all of his fights with him so it's like you know we. We spent so much time together in you know. He was interested in watching those fights. It really put a spark in his eyes so we always did that. Man people will pay a lot of money back then to do that to do exactly what you were doing every single every single time. I'll watch what was it like watching the rumble in the jungle which is of course his iconic fight against george foreman and what was that. What was that like to watch it with him. What kind of reactions were you getting from him. As you're watching that he would like start. Reliving it you know. He'd be there with his mouth open. Kind of of flinching fainting and and you know punching like any boxer knows that like sometimes when they sleep they'll start shadowboxing. They'll start moving while they're sleeping and that's that's what he would do. When he was watching it he would start getting back in the zone and But i i wouldn't. I wouldn't ask them questions about boxing. I would really ask him questions about like. Hey what did they say in your corner or you know. What did you say to this guy. After the fight. I would ask him questions. That weren't fighting related. yeah. I'm always curious about the relationship. He had with angelo dundee longtime trainer. I mean what. What did you learn about that. Why no he loved him and angelo dundee was has been a fan of earth. He's been a friend of the family for you know so many years. Unfortunately i never met him But yeah up until his last year you know. He was still extremely kind to my family. Do you ever see that. The pizza hut commercial with angelo and mohammed. You've seen that. I'm sure right. That super bowl commercial reminded of it. I need to be super bowl commercial. Yeah it's like angelo. He's training a young fighter and the kids giving them mouth that he takes him to pizza. Introduce you to somebody. And they're sitting at the table right there as a great commercial. I watched it on youtube all the time. I didn't know that was pizza. Hut pizza see exactly all things. It was pizza pizza hut for paying the money. You need to get those two guys on camera to do that did you. Get the sense from from all the fights you watch with him. Was that rumble in the jungle. The one that.
Introducing Ronald Young Jr., Solvables Newest Host [TEST]
"Listeners. I want to introduce you to ronald young junior. You might be familiar with his name from other work. In podcasting leading shows like time well spent and leaving the theater. He's sometime guess contributed around. Npr's pop culture happy hour. We are really excited to make it. Official that ronald is going to be the newest host of solvable. Thank you thank you for having me. I'm so so excited to be here so publicly on the team. Believe it or not hosting solvable is not my main job. My main job is being. Ceo pushing in and pushkin over the last year in lockdown has like doubled in size. We have almost fifty people now. And it's exciting. There's a lot going on But it's sort of crowded out the time that i like to spend preparing and figuring out gas that also i'm not really a host. I don't know if you noticed that. I think i am trade. I'm an Host i have certain hosts qualities that i'm really interested in talking to the guests on the show And i have a lot of drive to learn. But i don't have that quality of hosting which i hear your voice and i really wanna know how that is done. Well first of all. I don't know if that's that's the message like we got hosted coaster said coming on all star show. I've always found it easy to talk to people. I've always founded easy to connect with folks and ask questions. And i'm curious about and mostly because as a child i was always encouraged to ask whether it was two friends. The families the teachers. And i think that's what helps with being a good host and with conducting good interviews. Which you do a great job of thank you ronald but yeah no. I think that just that basic quality of curiosity. If if you don't wanna know you can't read someone else's questions the producers on the show do suggest a lot great questions for us but ultimately you ask the ones that are your questions that have been you want. no yes. It's funny because like you know working with the solvable team. It's certainly is a team effort. But i think what makes a good host that what makes a good interviewer is the ability to read the conversation and to know when it when it needs to take a turn when it's about the pivot or when you're curiosity might push the interviewee a little deeper into the subject matter and even more comfortable and ready to answer more questions as they go so and i really enjoy doing that so this is a very exciting role for me. You do something i mean. Since were on this this topic. I do think being a really good host goes beyond just the flow of the conversation. Asking the right questions that something about creating this this environment this kind of comfort even this sense of place. And here's what. I don't feel that. I really know how to do but i hear in your voice you know in a lot of the people who are just really good shows terry gross. You know you just feel like you're at her place like you're in her world and you know in the guest is coming into her world and you feel as a listener. You're made to feel welcome and comfortable. How do you do that route. You know wish. I could say there was a trick. I wish i could tell you. Hey do this thing. And this'll this'll work but for me. It's just it's hospitality. It's really being genuinely interested in what they have to say. It's paying attention to them. Not necessarily thinking so far ahead that you can't be president in the conversation creating that warm sensitive environment it really comes from like a genuine place inside people and i think most people talk to you. We'll tell you that this is who. I am all the time. So it makes it easier for me to just bring this be to a hosting role Whereas some people. I think are very good at being a host and then you know in the rest of their lives are not nearly as hospitable or friendly and i can't say anything about ten gross but i i know that good host is being able to create that sense of hospitality in the conversation that they're having that moment. Yeah i think of the great host of my childhood dick caveat who was on. Tv obviously long before your time but back in the days before cable there only a few channels every night cabinet was having these interesting people on his show and he's charming. He's charmed by the gas and a lot of what he's trying to do. Is of course just inject wisecracks. I've got clip here. That's a good example of that it's cabot talking to the comedian don rickles. It's hard for you to be serious but it is. I think people don't admit that deep down inside. If i may be serious for a moment that you do something on stage that all of us would like to do if we had no class the other host i think about all the time as i grew up listening on the radio growing up in chicago. Two studs terkel here just as one example is studs terkel interviewing muhammad ali at one thousand nine hundred seventy five. Why do you think it is always in this particular theater. So many different people are. Why would they rooting for you. The outsider we'll i think the masses root for me because this scuffling they've been persecuted they figure by the tat taxes and whatever they've underdogs people are basically the underdogs hole and the things that i say from my people in the free involve people and the way i speak out in the title of the have and the and now let this. Stop me from recognizing every day man that thing. This is what they whether it'd be black or white. The massive people hardworking people the amazing thing about studs terkel circle. He was so good at talking to anybody today. He would have like a janitor and then he would. Have you know an opera singer. And then he would. Have you know a former vice president or politician and he just part of what was great about him with. He would talk to everybody the same way. Yeah i mean there's a sense of empathy that comes with no matter. Who's in the room. It should be able to be extended to anyone who's sitting opposite from you whether they'd be the janitor or the president of the united states. The other thing is not being afraid to ask even a question that may not sound as smart as you think it does. I think larry king wants said He was he was on. He was talking to jesse thorn. My friend hobie. Khan who wrote you negotiate anything. We grew up together. He says to me larry. The secret of your success is your dumb dumb. Is the great road to success. Because you not afraid to. I don't know tell me help me. That's a lot of interviews help. help me that. You're you're a brain search. You got brain surgery tomorrow morning. Think about it tonight when you go in the check your hands. If they're steady. And then all of a sudden you have this. Very poignant moment because larry king asked a question that is wow. I would have even sit there. I was like ronald do you. Do i do that. Also i wanna make sure that. I i do that but having that empathy allows you to be embassy to cross from you like i said whether it's the janitor or the president of the united states. Yeah so for this show. We do interviews with a particular kind of focused. How is problem solving. And how are people who have ideas about solving problems. Making the world veteran capable of making the world better. And that's the thing that can be big range of stuff. Yeah if you look out there let's say your your houses near the water and you look out there and you're just like the water seems to be creeping closer and closer. You're only thinking about what's going to happen when the water reaches your house and all the horrible things that can happen as the water continues to rise and the flooding when you when you start to think about all that it kind of changes your posture versus if you think how do we stop the water. How do we get the people out. How do we keep my house. Dry and think in terms of This podcast i'd like that it's pivoting from us talking so much about what the issue is because in most cases we know what the issue is what we really need to know is. What's the best way forward. How can we like either neutralize whatever. This problem is or at least adjust our lives so that the problem isn't what it is. Do we need to build a bridge. Maybe we need to build our houses higher whatever that means in order to To get out of the water. I think it gives a bit of optimism to the world
Experts Weigh In On How U.S. Should Respond To Massive Computer Hack
"Should the us government respond to a computer hack that breached both government networks and private companies mo- cybersecurity experts think. Russia is responsible for the hack and npr's national security correspondent. Greg myra has been talking to some of them. Good morning greg. good morning noel. Perhaps most importantly is the over absolutely not it's still ongoing and we're continuing to learn details. We've heard now that the treasury department hack occurred in july and like other government departments. This was just uncovered in recent days. The email of top officials was hacked. Apparently not the account of treasury secretary. Steve mnuchin Also no evidence that classified systems were breached This information has come from democratic. Senator ron wyden who was briefed on the matter and we can expect this kind of information to sort of dribble out in the weeks and months ahead as government agencies and private companies go through their computer networks But clearly much of this is going to fall on the biden administration to make sure the hack Inside government computer networks is over that there's clear attribution on who did it and then to decide how to respond these major breaches have happened. Before does the government have a strategy to deal with them. No absolutely not again. There are no rules or red lines or clear consequences for adversaries who get caught now today. What we ended up seeing is lots of hand-wringing and ultimately some sort of limited responses right now with this current hack. We're seeing wrestling over. The definition some members of congress. Call this an act of war now. Cyber experts in the intelligence community. Do see it as a big deal but more along the lines of traditional espionage albeit on a massive scale i spoke about this with p w singer cyber expert at the new america think tank. This was not an act of war. This is more cold war style back and forth espionage stealing secrets. That's why you've seen the reaction from the intelligence community to be a mix of. Oh my god what just happened and gosh. We got a tip the hat to them. What a coup for them so. There is no clear way to respond greg. What are the range of options here. Traditional spying might generate public criticism Kicking out suspected spies perhaps some sanctions. But when this happened it really hasn't changed the behavior of russia any other adversaries they still seek hacking is a low cost high return proposition singer says the us can and needs to do much more and should create deterrence in in two ways gave a boxing analogy saying the us needs to punch back harder and also develop more resiliency to absorb the growing number of cyber blows. I make the parallel to my tyson. You don't hit him. He'll punch you back in the face versus muhammad ali rope a dope through resilience where you don't hit me because it just won't work out for you. What else do we know. So we know that the government and private companies were both hacked. What do we know about the private companies. We haven't heard that much from them. Have we know that's right. But we are hearing more of the hackers clearly targeted many tech companies in. This makes a lot of sense. They that hackers want these cutting edge cyber tools. These companies have so presumably. The hackers can use them themselves in the first organization to detect. This hack. two weeks ago was fire. I of prominent cyber security farm fire. Icao kevin mantius spoke with all things considered yesterday and he said these hackers were extremely sophisticated and once they got into the system. They cured out. An operation was specifically designed to attack fireeye. He realized very early on as they launched their own investigation that this was a level of tradecraft he'd never seen before and he said the scale of this hack really drives home the need for a strong national cyber policy. It's time this nation comes up with some doctrine on what we expect. Nations rules of engagement to be. And what will our policy or proportional response speed of folks. Violate the doctrine. Because right now there's absolutely esscalation in cyberspace it. It just seems astonishing that we don't yet have the doctrine in the year. Twenty twenty the. Us however does have a lot of cybersecurity might what is preventing us from using it more effectively. While you're still seeing a lot of things that are in the works Security cyber agency was just launched in twenty eighteen at focused on the elections this year and by all accounts did a did a did a good job right now. There's the military authorization bill on the president's desk waiting to be signed it has money for additional cyber upgrades in by all accounts. You're seeing a lot more cooperation between the government and private tech companies. But this country is losing huge sums of money Do to these cyber attacks and Couple of years ago the nsa director paul nakasone was at his confirmation hearing and he was asked if adversaries. Fear the us in cyberspace. He said the answers absolutely not. Npr's greg mary. Thanks so much. Greg my pleasure.
Interview with Calvin Baker
"Talk A lot about Colin. Kaepernick who of course has become far more than an athlete and more than any athlete of his generation has become super politicizing talk about how sports is a narrative of nationhood and definitely think that you could write eight the story of modern America on his last Assi What What do you? What do you? What are you? What are you thinking about? Colin Kaepernick. I think he's great. I think the truth almost didn't come to light. They. They suppress it for so long and so long and so long I think that it is. Emblematic of what's going on the country as a whole where you have this man and expressing is. Liberal belief. and. Becomes a lightly We tell ourselves we're in the twenty th century were everything is so diverse, and then you see what a lightning rod that becomes for. White. Anger. Someone expressing pride who is but also like. You can't kill black. That's radical athlete baboots how that's That's where we really are that. You can't say. Retaliates tally is wrong. Those are the hard enforces of racism, which I which I can chew colonialism in larger forces and patterns. How advanced how might and can the society be if you if it's if it's controversial as it was in that moment? Thankfully it's I think. As this moves forward. He's becoming raise established himself as one of a line of. Athletic spokespersons yet if you go back on tradition begins. Muhammad Ali's or the world and the Jim Brown's the world who's as like Oh as black versus one of the few people who is allowed any sort of visible Jackie Robinson in different. S. And that's end. And then he became corporate. Right. But the happiest people's right night. I talked about Jim Brown on the NFL who made the decision to leave NFL. After A manhood battle with art modell whose the owner Cleveland browns and direct line and one of the things on everything. We think we're saying there's historical precedent for it and the function and the horses ourselves. Insane. And so right. You look at that the and you look at what's happening feeling I'm not the first person. Say This I long chop wanted to contextualized story. And also like yeah. Camp is doing civil rights work. In the resistance that he faces shows you how much of this country is still against the most basic expression of civil rights what do you? What do you make of? The NFL along with the NBA? WNBA. Others. The institutions of sport have seemed to have come around to say you know we're going to embrace black lives matter. We're going to plastered all over the field or the court wear whatever you want. Neil. However, you want like you know we're fully supportive of the movement and yet gaps still doesn't have a job. So he still sacrificed his dream. Surely, it was his childhood dream that he achieved And then had that taken away chose to go after something bigger, and now that the the sports world, the NFL in particular has come around to his side of things. He is still left out which for so many of us for you to. ADDS a hypocritical sheen to all of it. I mean, I don't know I can't fully embrace what the NFL is doing until he is welcome back into the fold in a serious way. I mean, one of the. made the final cut I. Don't remember off the top of my head but wasn't Michael Vick can chilidog and still have A. Job in Colin Kaepernick, can't say. Shoot people. And not have a job. That's what I think. First of all the NFL. Lost me just I mean. There are a lot like their lot of sports. I. Love. I. Love Sports is you know and but there's always another sport and league baseball loss during steroids. Haven't been back. Haven't really looked back. I might watch catch on the corner of my eye, the barbershop every once in a while. The NFL. Because they are so far on what you say what you think the man like Avenue you know Muhammad, Ali's spent. Eighteen months in jail for Kosovo Vietnam War. I don't remember how much. Much of the baby actually did. Athletic careers. sports and they end when you're still a young individual with a lot of life ahead and as you read it as Jim Brown realize can't stop. By many miles at. And right the dream of NFL would it looks like it might be over I hope that it's eventually someone will give him a shot maybe but. And will air. We'll find the next stream. Nets like life purpose. That's always the challenge of being an athlete. It happened to him in a prematurely it's not fair but he's shown himself to be larger than that lead

Why Tom Seaver Is The Greatest Met Ever
"People perhaps too young to have seen it and to have lived through it. How would you put into words what Tom Seaver meant to baseball and particularly in New York in the late sixties and the seventies? Well. He's the greatest met ever and there is not a close second. He's for me one of the ten greatest pitchers of all time when you look at his wins, his era and his strikeouts, the only pitcher in history that can match those numbers is Walter Johnson whose regularly considered the greatest. Of all time top seaver struck out ten batters in a row that is still a major league record and they were the last ten hitters of the game showing how strong he was at the end Greenie I was twelve years old when he pitched the mets to the world championship in nineteen, sixty nine it was absolutely breathtaking to watch a pitcher who threw that hard with that kind of precision and the way he threw that back news to drag against the ground. He was so big and he was so strong. He was Tom Terrific in every way he was he was like a superhero in my youth. I grew up in New York and I wasn't met Fan, but you couldn't not not only admire him but you're almost all of him. He became almost mythical figure you can. We talk about that a little bit not not just how great pitcher he was the numbers tell you that story but just what he meant in an even larger sense than that, how would you put that into words? Well he was so much a celebrity in New York because he was so smart he was. So worldly, he did the New York Times Crossword puzzle every day and apparently nobody did it better than he did and he never took himself too seriously Dick Schaap told this great story one night that Dick arranged a party out with a bunch of people, a bunch of writers and a bunch of celebrities. And among the celebrities were Muhammad, Ali and Tom Seaver and through the night went along alley. Brilliant Mad. But not a great baseball fan whispered to Tom seaver which newspaper do you work for Anti seaver like burst out in laughter that's how great he was at understanding his place and everything he said that what he retired, he wanted to become an artist, but he wasn't good enough to be an artist. But boy was he a great great baseball player who captured a town at the perfect
Artist Bruce Sulzberg on painting Rafael Nadal
"Welcome to the tennis dot. Com Pot guest. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined in this episode by my co host. Irena Falconi! Hey, guys! How's it going? And we have a very interesting episode of everyone today we are with the owner artists of cells media. Fine Arts Bruce Cells Bruce Welcome thank you, thank you so much for having me. Bruce? Do you have a very interesting story? I don't think a lot of people know it has to do with Ross doll. You don't usually have artists on our show, so that's why this is very unique and special you wanNA. Tell everyone story when it comes to tennis. Even if you're not a player or coach or tournament organizer, so let's start with you know where you are in the world during this quarantine and how your life is going these days, it's been very interesting. Interesting just like I would say probably ninety nine point. Nine percent of the world is trying to figure out what the hell you're. GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.

"We can't live like this anymore. Right and that's that's that's not enough man to allow people out so I was SORTA stupid about it. Well it's it's certainly Weird Times there's no doubt about that and that goes for sports as well the NHL is hoping to have its players back in team facilities very soon with lots of precautions. The League was forced to pause season of course in mid March because of Covid nineteen and they released a memo. Today's record this. That is an answering. It's targeting early next month early June as the start date for phase two of its return to play including the opening of practice rinks allowing small voluntary group workouts on and off the ice. If the face to plan gets the green light on sessions would be non contact involved six players. That'd be expected to maintain physical distancing at all times. Players will be required to wear masks when entering and exiting facilities and were not able to physically distance and so. I guess they have to wear face coverings all times at the facilities except when they're exercising and Teams are also not allowed to require a player to return to a clubs home city to complete any necessary quarantine measures before the workouts begin. Coaches and management will be allowed to watch but not participate in the informal skates. So another step. Yeah so when you hear that Steve at least rely do is that enough to eliminate those those guidelines to do it. Is that enough to eliminate the risk of this thing by doing it? That way is that is that so essential that it's gonNA fill this massive void of not being allowed to do things you know when I hear that I'm like well that's that's you know. Is that really worth it? If they didn't do this. No BIG DEAL IN MY MIND. Still stay home right. You know what I mean. It's like okay you can. You can go to the arena. If you're alone the void for me was during the winter. I don't have any. I don't feel any void now. Now that it's nice outside and I can get out there and potter around the yard. Gopher game a golf. I don't necessarily feel the void like it did in the wintertime. Because you know hockey's one of our great bits of solace to are miserable climate right now it would be one of those kind of cool if we if we started up again is certainly not a need or a need to fill a void. The way some presented in my opinion anyway. That's what that's what they're gonNA do. And the only reason I see this stuff happening again is is that because people said the including professional sports leagues including government including fucking families. And all stuff going. Okay this is enough. This is enough of this shit. Okay have added there. Okay tempt fate. Here go ahead. But we'll see we'll see. It was fifty five years ago today. James One of the most famous sports photos of all time was taken the Great Muhammad Ali taking on Sonny Liston yes. He was actually not Mohammad-ali at that point. I think he was still Cassius. Clay and the photo is of a first round knockout of Sonny Liston and Allie is over top of the guy. And he's clearly and I've always said this anytime you hear bravado or guys you know chirping and interviews or celebrating after you know nothing tackles in a football game. I think that all goes back to Muhammad Ali because that guy loved chirp loved to talk and I think that's where it all started. I was part of the fascination along with the guy being a great athlete. Part of the fascination about Allie was that he was just so you know bold and would say anything and it was something we hadn't seen before. It's well before my time but certainly have seen enough and read enough about Mohammed Ali in the early days to to know that that was a massive transition in the sports fans mind but this particular flight was fascinating that photo but it was also a scenario of one of the most controversial points in sports history. Because listen takes this really innocent Little Jab from Ali. I mean it landed in everything but he listed went down like he was shot. And then if you watch the video replay which you can find on Youtube make sure Internet homework. Listen is like stumbling around. Like just really bad acting. And he's looking up alley and looked almost clear eyed when he looked up. Are they buying this and it was just? I was a very clear throwing of a fight in my opinion anyway. And that's all lens to this amazing photo. One of the they call it the fourth greatest sports moment of the twentieth century. So THIS IS INTERESTING STEVE. Because everyone knows that photo right and it's so interesting of course celebrated every year right. Let's just say fifty five years ago. What Mohammed Ali remember? He was I will float like a butterfly stings like a bee. I'm Mohammed Ali. Whatever that was right and by the way who's the guy who can imitate him? So Billy Crystal if you WanNa see a great invitation Mohammed Ali Billy Crystal. It's been living off that thing for years. But what that guy did Steve I think is he? He was the guy who initiated and who invented smack in in Rippin guys and then in going off the page and talking about. I'm going to kick your ass really okay. Is the sh the short way of saying what this guy did sure? I've been saying that for years. Right he was the guy who who started that right. And then that's why you get you know when you look at it. It's all based on that. It's all most of them. Ma is based on hype in my mind and the I think the WWE is well. I think all that that whole concept comes from what Allie starting right so I believe he did and now it's in sports right and now it's in sports. Where like when I think of for example the backflip from Battista. Okay is there. Take that Shit right there right then. Everyone ever ever going to know that it's been around and it will stay you know and it's good. It's Kinda good you know I like it and I'd like it more so when it's real and not in. Wwe Or some of the hype. That's fake hype about you. Know Extreme fighting right. It's like let's just get on with the vote. Okay people love the sport and go toe-to-toe boys okay. The rest of this shit is become ship. Now it's over the top. But but you'll see in Sportsman. The goalie flip in the stick. Their this in Calgary this year guys given crowds finger in Gulf in Ryder Cup when a guy makes a pot the cupping of the year. You know I can't hear you now. Stevie I can't hear you so there's all sorts of smack that that people lay down and sports and when you talk about you'll think more and more you know and so the guy invented that he's he's the started that not just you know I'm GonNa kick his ass okay but but he he would do it all day long every day all the time going okay. Not only are we gonNA kick his ass. But I'm the greatest of all time. Yeah you could you imagine your marketing Guy Your Age I really do. You want to go with that one. Okay you got some personality and we can make some dough off that and that'll be interesting for sure but do we WANNA go right to the thousand mile an hour. I'm the greatest and no one. Nola beat me and as they say it ain't bragging if you can back it up. I think that if you didn't know the background of this particular photo you might think to yourself that this would be more bravado. And maybe even dabbling in inappropriately and all the whole Etiquette of sports. They can think of a hockey fight for example. Two guys getting a hockey fight and one Guy Cao's the other and he's lying on the ice you will never ever see. An enforcer stand over a guidance. Be Yelling at him and Chirpin Adam dancing around him immediately. They'll well if they've really badly hurt them. They'll start calling for the other teams trainer to get the hell out here or the turn away and Kinda just you know soak it in the they would never do something like what. Allie appears to be doing here. But what what makes this particular photo unique is that I think that alley is. Maybe I don't know maybe he got wind of that. Maybe the fix was in that That listens taken a dive. It's the first round the year earlier alley. Just become the world champion for the very first time and this is his first defence of his title. And I don't maybe he got word of something was up because listen goes down quite easily. In my opinion it was a good solid hit. I I shouldn't say that. But he surely could have gotten up and I think that maybe Ali was trash talking him him at least to some degree because he felt like the guide. Gone Down Awfully easy on that one right. Wow I don't know I. I don't know right that that's a that's a whole different story can't know it only speculation in this thing and the knockout in the fighting. Stephen Hawking never happens because that's that's a that's a it's not not the result of the game. You know the the the goal in hockey score goals and beat the other team. The result in boxing is knock. The guy out is the goal. Right is the whole idea of this thing so anyway I liked know. I love that thing when all he was doing that. And I said this guy's fucking nuts man. I'm you know bit of a bit of a chance your taking here. You know when you saying I'm the greatest and no one will ever beat me fuck. That's changed a lot of sort of what is mundane sports. Yeah he basically took the the old adage of squeaky wheel gets the grease and ran with it and so many so many moving forward have taken that same concept and continued with. I think about Dennis Rodman. Dennis Rodman played for the Detroit Pistons in anonymity is a tremendous rebounder. And very good player. But it wasn't until he started being outrageous. That people really started taking notice. Tell me Conor McGregor is the same famous fighter if he's just winning titles He part of the reason he's as famous as he is is because he's as outrageous as he is so yeah. A reason alley went the Louisville lip as As a moniker and as a behavior and it worked out very nicely for them good about a great career all the same. Don't get me wrong but it it. Obviously that whole braggadocious stuff that.

My resume is pretty long but I have to tell you what I enjoy. Most is encouraging others to be the greatest version of themselves by replenishing your health your mindset and your purpose now. I was blessed to have the greatest teacher as a role model. Being Muhammad Ali daughter was truly a divine gift. It really is having him as an example shape me into the person that I am today now. My Dad had a tremendous amount of respect for himself and also for others. His courage and dedication were immeasurable when it came to standing up for people in doing what was right when. I was man thinking about them now when I was a child. He told me that boxing was his platform. It was just a job to do real work. He said boxing did not define him. He made sure that my siblings and I knew exactly how famous he was too. Oh yeah he's a say you can go anywhere in the world and people know me. Say this all the time. They don't have to know English. They don't even have to have television but they know the name Lee and he told me that it wasn't because he was the greatest inside the ring but it was what he was doing outside of the ring and I watched him doing it every day. Simply putting a smile on people's faces or free and Haas's I mean come on he did it all. My Dad always talked about how he wanted to be remembered. I remember this as a little child. It was so important to him and he was building his legacy according to his own standards. So as I became an adult his word led me to think about my own legacy. Here you are the daughter of Muhammad Ali. What are you going to do so I had an inherent desire to give back lift others as well and I knew that I wanted to make a difference in the world but I didn't know exactly how fast forward in time I was about. Eighteen years old going to school full time living on my own yes. I had a nel salon at the time I was doing nails. You ought to know that I do a good pedicure best massage you've ever had my husband knows it. I was very ambitious. One night I was at a friend's house getting ready to watch Mike Tyson fight. Y'All know who that is right. Yeah it was a heavyweight fight main event so we got our Popcorn Soda Pizza. We're getting ready to watch the fight. And all the sudden women walk into the ring and I was like. I had no idea that women's boxing even existed until that moment so I watched the fight and was it all the whole time. I went home that night. Dreaming about becoming a professional boxer myself. Well the next morning I woke up. You know we do. I started thinking I started thinking of all the reasons why shouldn't do it. I couldn't do it. I've never been an athlete had never participated in the sports of any kind in school. None no athletic background and then I really want to follow in the footsteps of the goat. I mean what I be able to do what it would take to become a boxer. I had no idea I had no idea what it would take. I wasn't that Little Girl in the gym with my father. Watching him I was my father had been done box and by the time I was old enough no exposure to any of this what people think and most of all what would my father think. I didn't think he would like it. I knew that so I talked myself out of it in a whole year went by before I decided to listen to the voice inside of me that just would not go away and I decided to give boxing try. Dr Found a local boxing gym and started training in secrecy. Yes I told everybody is like I'm just trying to lose weight. I'm just getting shape. Got About thirty pounds that I could stand to get off but in actuality I was testing the waters. I wanted to make sure that I had the natural talent and that I was going to be able to do what it would take to transform myself into a fighter and my goal was to be the best not just any fighter. I knew I want to be a world champion. I wanted to be undefeated so I went to the gym six nights a week after school and work every day. I walked in the gym excited. Eight PM never miss a day. And I worked the heavy bags speed bags shadow box and jump rope and I did it all. I mean my body was sore twenty four seven and I mean you know if any of you have ever done a Boston workout. You know what I'm talking about you find muscles that you didn't even know you had so I had to learn how to run which was something that I had never done before. My mom used to run about a mile a day. She's always very fit and she said come on. She took me to the beach and remember the first day she said. We're going to run for thirty seconds. We're going to walk for a minute. We're going to run for thirty seconds. Walked from it and we continue that interval until I could run for mile then eventually passed. I was running for two three four but she took me out there and just got me started and within about four months. I lost about thirty. Five pounds of body fat gained lean muscle and more importantly. I thought looked and felt like an absolutely different person. I had actually transformed myself into this fighter that I had the vision of so training to become a boxer was the hardest thing that I had ever done but I loved every moment of it because I kept that vision in my mind of the end result and I apply that to everything I do. Now that vision of me holding my hands up in the ring with those belts around my waist and that was my driving force throughout my entire Boston career. Once you get it you WANNA keep it so that was my vision so the news eventually got around that I was in the gym training and I remember. My father came in town and confronted me me and my father had about three really important conversations in life life changing conversations the change his life and mine and this was one of them he said. I hear your boxing. He's a True House. I Guess Dad. How's real confident? You know when my dad like I'm that one that last baby girl. I got a baby girl. Put me through the same thing right now. Lay all over again. I said is true. He said the whole world is going to be watching you and you have a light shining on you know much pressure. You're going to be under and I said yes that I've given it a lot of thought and I want to do it. Would you get knocked out or or get knocked down? I said I'm GonNa do what you did. Get backed up. My father grew more and more frustrated. Thank you grew more and more frustrated because he knew what I was saying was right but how he felt about. It was so strong so he said it. It's too hard. It's a man's sport in is not for you. I said I understand how you feel. But I've made my decision in his final. I had to do what was in my heart just like he did. And that's what I told him my heart so six months later I had my pro. Debut is my first time ever getting in the ring no amateur fights so you can imagine the pressure that was on me a young girl getting in ring for the first time with my father. Muhammad Ali in the audience eighty different media outlets my first fight ever waiting to see what I was going to do. So this was the moment to prove to my father to the world and most importantly to myself that I had become an athlete

S. C. one play there are in in our conference or you know the central teams will play each other and Havel rivalry game Arnold bye weeks to keep deer I love all intra each week in L. M. da basically then if he would have the following week off the weekend off after thanksgiving first our intent then you would have a a few games every game starting out that that Thursday following so you would have basically for Thursday night games you might be able to get through games and if you really want but I would just think that that would extend the season overall for the viewing pleasure if you'll have more quality weeks all kind of all football because that's the hangover thing one man you know you will stop and stuff like that is the everyone talks about them of all hang over wall this gives you the ability to expand up the the overall to an extra week of meals for games yeah you don't put the punishment on the player's body second of all when it comes to where you're going to gain that week well then you kill off one of the preview the game then what you do is you give each team a preview the game at all but then you keep the third preseason game what would actually be the first one you play all wars overseas like in Europe like you used to deal with that world football league thanks and you know and and basically give the Europeans if you want to you know reject this or out to the world or whatever stage you can go and do that on week one of the previous and I don't think anyone would really have a problem with that state side as far as the fans are concerned but would give the exposure that the NFL wants over to the oversees the mainly Europe and stuff like that each you know you can have how many preseason games over there one weekend and I come back and let each team have won holding preseason game you don't put a bearing on the pocketbook of the season ticket holders you know that have to force the by these preseason games which are meaningless obviously the all but there's value to the team obviously to have one well I'm just going out there I don't know what you think about it but I dislike it for the fact that you can extend the season out without the punishment on the players and you still had that sixteen game season but you get to bite their act exactly the same for all teams in each conference they don't have any in all different there as well both it's for all all right appreciate no I I appreciate the phone call thanks a lot when it comes to Thursday night football I do believe that the players are going to push for mandatory by after the Thursday night football game especially if there's going to be an increase in inventory in the season everybody's going to end up playing on a short week whether it's Thursday night football or Monday Night Football at some point this at some point throughout the course of the season I do believe there is going to be a push for a mandatory rest period afterwards when it comes to the international game I am convinced that we are moving towards a schedule that eight regular season games are going to be played in London I think they want to put a team in London but they know how hard it's going to be from a competitive standpoint it's going to be tough to get free agents over there it's it's going to be tough for everybody so the money's going to be and instead of giving them a team let's give them eight games and that.
Rush Limbaugh's Medal of Freedom from Trump draws backlash
"Backlash to President Trump's decision to award rush limbaugh the Presidential Medal of freedom. You've got to C. N. N.'s. Brian Todd Brian Wolf to say this is controversial is putting it mildly rush. Limbaugh has a huge following one of the reasons for that is that he's so controversial but some members of Congress civil rights leaders and others are simply outraged tonight because of limbaugh long history of divisiveness in dramatic fashion Russia for the first time ever at a state of the Union address a president awards the Presidential Medal of freedom rush limbaugh. Thank you for your decades devotion to our for some members of Congress like Cedric Richmond who've worked for years to bridge racial divides the award of the nation's highest. I civilian honor to radio. Host Rush. Limbaugh in their chamber was a Gut Punch. This would just be one bad time in America's history where we placated in pander to racists and Dan dividers for decades limbaugh's been accused of overt race baiting of appealing to the worst of Americans prejudices often directing his most incendiary remarks toward African Americans. The NFL all too often looks like a game between the blood weapons. President Obama was a frequent target target. Limbaugh playing a provocative song on his show magic and Limbaugh was one of the early proponents of one of the most infamous false attacks on Obama which was heavily promoted by Donald Trump. Rush Limbaugh was at the centre or at least was a contributor to the conspiracy theories about President Obama the specious and harmful argument. That President Obama had not been born in the United States and therefore was an illegitimate president. And what riles Congressman Richmond. Is the company rush. Limbaugh now keeps when you think about the people who have received this awarded as people who bring the people who fight for cause of unity and justice and then we just give it to somebody who has stoked and is a blatant racist limbaugh now shares a medal of freedom with civil rights icons Martin Luther King Junior Muhammad Ali Jackie Robinson and Rosa Parks who President Clinton recognized after bestowing stowing. The award on her at a state of the Union address in the middle of his impeachment limbaugh also drew criticism for comments about women including his remark Mark About Female Georgetown University Student Who Campaign for access to birth control. Does that make her an extra slut right right prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex rush. Limbaugh later apologized. President trump does have the prerogative to give the medal of freedom freedom to whoever he chooses and plenty of other recipients have been controversial. It should also be noted that rush limbaugh has an enormous following and just revealed he has late stage stage lung cancer but historian Tim Noth- tally believes at this moment in this political climate. I think the president has tarnished the award by giving it to a very divisive figure in of reality show moment in the state of the union at a time when this country three desperately needs healing. I asked Congressman Richmond if he'll lodge a protest against the award to limbaugh. We're watching effort to have that award revoked. He said there are too many other other important issues. He has to concentrate on and he doesn't want to give this any more attention. We did ask the White House to respond to the criticism over the limbaugh award. We never heard back from them.

Egypt going to extreme lengths to quash dissent
"Meanwhile in each of the government has taken more than two thousand people into custody after recent protests their industry international calls it the biggest crackdown yet under the Egyptian president the BBC selling appeal joins us from Cairo hi Sally hello how are you doing. tell us more about these mass arrests in each of two thousand why have all of these people some of them children as I understand it been rounded up that's the big question and I don't think anyone can give a clear cut answer to that but it only goes back to September the twentieth when a hundreds of protesters took to the streets in Cairo in Buffy's square the birth place of the twenty eleven revolution and in other parts of the country they were calling on presidency seat to step down and the also trumpet again as the military rule old together and this my own means was unprecedented since president CC came to power in twenty fourteen no professor could ever set foot in Buffy square the government has severely restricted the anti regime protests so that was a day to remember and I was there and I've heard the people chomping and they were really angry they they called on the president to leave power and the government seemed to respond with a very heavy crackdown because in the days to follow hundreds of people have been arrested according to human rights lawyers was we've been speaking to nearly two thousand but some of them have been recently released we don't have the exact number yet but we know that a large number of them have already been released and we're talking about journalists activists politicians even lawyers who are representing detainees well during their work alright you mentioned people taking to the streets for the first time since the new regime has taken place and and why they're doing it there was something a building contractor who spoke out about what he thought was I really corruption can you tell us a little bit more about him and and spark of the protests yes this is true he he was the trigger and he is a building contractor who flew to Spain recently and he's living in a self imposed exile he published a number of videos on social media that went absolutely viral in Egypt some some people say his name is Muhammad Ali and some people here in Egypt are even saying that he has become a replacement for Netflix because everybody's watching him and he said that he's been working with the army in construction projects for nearly fifteen years and he uncovered some details about the mega construction projects kind about by the government and he said that the president sees himself and top army generals waste millions of Egyptian pounds on building lavish presidential palaces that the country does not need as well as mega construction projects that won't benefit normal Egyptians and this comes at a time when many people here are living from hand to mouth the government has imposed also austerity measures that isn't that are hitting a lot of Egyptians and according to the district's released by the government recently nearly one third of the Egyptian of Egypt's population are living below the poverty line so when Muhammad Ali started talking about the details of the construction projects this has enraged a lot of Egyptians actually and perhaps this is what really push them to take to the streets flooded small just Mohammed Ali himself it's the diet living conditions they have been going through in recent years. have any of the protesters been charged with any crimes I've been talking to some families of those who are being interrogated now and they have been reprimanded in custody for nearly fifteen days as some of the charges I remember them a sister of one of those behind bars told me that there are there is a cliche list off charges that includes protesting without permission spreading false news belonging to a terrorist group these are the main charges and one of the most interesting things that I've heard from lawyers that security forces they they arrested even passers by people who do not with it and take part in them in the protests we just happened to be there for some reason or another and the end of the arrests continued in the days to follow so it wasn't just on the twentieth of September but the old also on the days that followed and this is why many lawyers are calling them random arrests that have nothing to do with the protests but they just want to intimidate the normal Egyptians that's B.

The rumble in the jungle was also a major musical event James Brown. was there be king was there.

Nobody cares about us saying that we for each other so that there was this celebration aberration connecting African culture with African American poultry that both celebrated and exploited in some ways in order to get people excited about the fight by the time that was kind of a new concept but in terms of rumble in the jungle considered one of the most important sporting events at twentieth century. Why do you think that was no long run. There's a lot of big events but they don't always hold up so you have this huge audience championship fight that was like incredible years the Ali Lee story itself and I'll ease rope widow finish to that fight where you got let himself get punched basically and tricked form in and new yet one shot right and was able to accomplish it and that was huge. Ali's rope a dope finish was the key to his victory. He let himself get backed up against the ropes then used his arms to block as many a forms punches as he could once foreman was worn out.

The international scope of it was important and you know he won three lost at one three times james the belt so like that kind of like just adds to this kind of legacy stature that he had also so smart and funny he we know how to use his controversy to kind of help his bank account as well as the bugles fighting so. I think all around just like really is remarkable the term that he's worth remarking upon because he so
