"Then The Wall Street Journal looks at why increasingly your hotel concierge is probably now a bot. It's they're not a bot there, somebody may be thousands of miles away, quote the lows uses off site employees 2000 miles away to answer texts or phone calls, says manager, Laura Lowell, who oversees a staff of 14 agents at the company's engagement center in Franklin, Tennessee. Most guests never think to ask who is answering them. She says, these staffers feel common requests, including housekeeping or restaurant reservations within minutes, without involving the hotel's concierge team, the team isn't quick to share their actual location. We always say we're an extension of the front desk, she says. The volume of texts sent via Marriott's app tripled in 2021 from the year prior, but some hotels needing to reshuffle staff duties to meet the needs of guests, miss edmondson says for the past 6 years, Marriott brands, including moxy hotels and Weston, have offered guests the option to use the Marriott Bonvoy app to communicate directly with hotel staff. Text replies come from a mix of hotel staffers and automated responses based on the request. And finally, two pieces looking at the state of the streaming wars, specifically with regards to Netflix, but this obviously has implications for everybody. Netflix is among the stocks that is down significantly from all time highs recently and in his Bloomberg newsletter this week, Lucas Shaw looks into why Netflix had its worst day on the stock market in a decade. Turns out investors are increasingly worried about the very thing we've spoken about before about the economics of streaming. Remember when Peter Kafka warned us about that that no one was a 100% sure that the numbers would math out to replace the revenue that streaming disrupts for Hollywood? I want to pair that with a more targeted piece from the Financial Times, which I don't usually share FT stories because they have such a hard paywall, but if you can manage to get through to this piece, quote so even with 222 million subscribers, Netflix has to keep spending a lot to satiate us. Last year, Netflix posted negative free cash flow, the money left over after paying operating expenses and capital expenditure of a $159 million on $30 billion of revenue. Moffat nathanson projects that for 2022, Netflix revenue will rise 13% to more than $33 billion, but expenses will increase 15% to $27 billion, 20 billion of this on content. This results in net income of $5 billion down about 3% from 2021. So Netflix makes a lot of revenue but much less cash flow profit because it's costs are high. In this sense, Netflix's long-term business might look more like a telco than a tech company. The biggest U.S. telecoms groups have to invest heavily to offer the best service, while also keeping prices low because they are effectively selling the same product as their competitors. Netflix was in its own category for a while. Now it is surrounded by competition. The stock market has spent the past decade rewarding Netflix for its vision and growth for a long time that made old studio executives angry. But what Netflix results have shown us recently is that something more fundamentally scary for Hollywood might be happening. Streaming television is going to make less money. Maybe a lot less money for entertainment companies than cable did. They are replacing a great model for a less great model, says nathanson, by a mile. This weekend, the bonus episode will be the Twitter space from last night featuring three of the best venture and startup reporters in the business on the turmoil in the stock market recently and how that could affect the startup ecosystem. One of the biggest panels we've ever done, I think. Also, because you asked for it, Chris and I debate the counter arguments to all of the web three hype. Enjoy that, talk to you on Monday..

"I think felt well-positioned in being. Let's say safe haven or a Refuge perhaps to to some of the people in in the on the right. Let's right so. I don't think they deliberately kicked anybody out for for not being For being liberal. I think that just got more users on the right. But i think there's was more of a logistical issue and once again parlor is not that different from twitter for example because it's all user generated content so when you have a discussion and you don't have facts like for example a proposed law. It's in black and white. It's text you can read it. And it's official we. You know if you're if you're debating whether the infrastructure bill or whether it's the voting rights act you can just click and see what it actually says and who's who sponsored it not only that you see the sponsors and you see where their funding comes from and you can detect anything that might conflict in your mind you can. You can determine that yourself with the click of the platform so it's a combination of those two things. Frankly it's for people who want to take these issues a little bit more seriously. You know analyze the facts as opposed to just whatever their next door neighbor is saying for example in and it's not for people who just want to inflame make people angry not based discussions on facts this for people who enjoy a constructive conversation and who can listen to were also willing to listen not just shout. Well there's a reason why we have two years one mouth right six in northern colorado one of three one thirteen ten gay okay joined by caesar mikkel malgosa. Ceo of moxie and a political. Strategist all right. So will we ever see former. President trump return to twitter. Well you know This permanent ban. I don't know what it means. I guess it means permanent I think it's a mystery. I mean i think with somebody of his stature and visibility He ought to be able to get his message out. obviously he he mastered twitter as a as a form of communicating to the public and that was taken away from him and also obviously he had the issues with facebook that's really up to them And how they want to manage their organization. And and frankly i think dialogue helps me. Perhaps a conversation with he and his staff would help to see. Hey if he wants to come back on twitter you know what are the terms you know. And he should be able to make his case. Hopefully there's an ability to discuss and not just shut them down. We think dialogue is important. You know you just don't shut people off. Listen and see if you can work it out. You know to not according to the cancel culture though and the instances are are many and varied. And i just wonder how we slow that train down because again i love what you're doing with moxy because it seems to be a return to rational logical information based discourse and exchange of ideas which i believe is absolutely foundational to the american way of life absolutely go. You know what i think. Moxie is all about being patriot..

"So you purposely falsify your name identity or location You know with the rules are pretty player. And if you wanna say something say do so in a respectful way and people will listen to you more if you are disrespectful. They're gonna shut you down anyway. They're not gonna listen. So but there's everybody's got points to make right. And i think our point of view is listened. Try to understand that point of view. Maybe you will modify your own point of view. Or maybe he won't but give it a chance and get news from a bunch of different sources so that you can make your own conclusions and not only that deal but we have not just ranting. Okay we have a combination of user generated content and we have official data so we have all the legislation that's been proposed and enacted by the us congress and by every one of the fifty states. Okay we have elected officials. We have pages for each one of them. This show details about everything from the bills that they sponsor to their fundraising and their fundraising sources. We have details on elections and candidates in fact that user types in moxie we have specific user types. We have individuals organizations. We have We have also candidates and we have elected officials we have we have various user types and the organizations that get in. You know you're either. Individ- is speaking on behalf of yourself or you're representing an organization if it's an organization that's an organization account and we need. We need to make sure it's a legitimate organization before we let them in so it's a little different than some of these free for all platforms that then become arbitrary in terms of their enforcement and we also deliberately nonpartisan in other words. We want we want you to say what you say. And we don't really care which party We just want you to be respectful. We believe we can learn from each other and and so far that message is resonating with our users. Now you talk about some of the more suspect media platforms. I wonder if in your estimation parlor falls into that category. 'cause you remember the flap over parlor and how it was removed from both apple and google apps. I believe it's back up and running but are you concerned about the future of moxie when it comes to having a platform. Well i'm concerned because when you get into an arbitrary enforcement of the rules then then what are the rules. You know what. I mean so It is it does place an extraordinary responsibility on the platform to make sure they're doing their best to enforce those rules right. So i think part got in trouble because i guess that's supposedly they were not Enforcing their rules. They had didn't have the ability to keep the harmful content out of the platform etcetera. So i think they got just a little behind the curve and they had an avalanche of users when When people started to get off twitter and facebook. So i think they're issue was a little bit more logistical. And they certainly..

"They're allowed on twitter. President trump former trump no. He still has the ban. Yeah that's that's interesting and it is a head scratcher now. All of the social media companies have their own set of rules right. They'd often referred to the mess community rules and sometimes they're not so easy to find and i'm not sure many of their users even read them But it's up to them to enforce them and if they do show arbitrarily then that goes into the gray area right so we On moxie we have fairly clearly defined set of community rules very easy to find and and frankly we encourage participation from all parties all ideologies. We asked you how refreshing absolutely we encourage all of us in this is. This is the reason why. And it's and it's really something that i think needs to happen. We we see ourselves as the antidote to the some of these echo chambers at what we believe. Is that if you just listen for a while to some opposing point of view. Get a chance There's you might modify your own opinion if you have a diverse set of news sources. We have over three hundred different news sources across the ideological spectrum. You may not agree with all the and frankly most of our readers probably don't read deliberately. Don't read some of them just because of the brand but We put him there. We don't we don't lead with branded the news organization we leave with the store. You click on it. You may or may not continue to read it beyond the caption but we'd like people to give it a try and and what what these social media organizations have done and you know who they are. They have Algorithms that gives you more of what you've consumed already and so they create a wider division. They and then pretty soon. You're you're talking with someone who you might know. And respect for a long time and all of a sudden they have a different set of facts and have a completely different point of view and their realities must much different than yours and it's because they've been guided through by this algorithm that keeps feeding 'em things they agree with and sources that they've liked before as opposed to presenting them with an issue that they meant might be interested in and get different points of view on that issue. So we do that on purpose. We don't use that type of algorithm we let you choose the issues that are of interest to you and furthermore we do certain things to validate your identification before you can start posting. We validate your address. You can't post until we've validated the address you ventured is actually yours or you've been there at least one By gps examination we really discouraged. the use of anonymous fictitious names. You know we feel if you have something to say. Don't hide behind some anonymous name As so many all kevin maine our they cower behind the internet absolutely and and we frown on that in fact. It's against our community rule..

We're a kinder gentler taliban and we will welcome women into positions of authority. Then tell me why it is. Why women in afghanistan as basically the united states has turned their back on this country and all of our allies there particularly those afghan interpreters.

"Cheney out of wyoming tweeted a truly ignorant and shameful performance by an american president senator. Tom cotton road. No way to avoid this care this chaos. That's a bald faced. Lie so again. I asked the question and i am not a military expert. I don't know how to withdraw gracefully and effectively from a twenty year war. But it seems to me that it's readily apparent to even the most casual observer that you don't pull your troops out. I particularly in a warn torn battlezone where the taliban is metastasized thing. No you leave your troops in place and the trajectory of this is very simple. You get your people out. Then you get your stop out which we didn't how much armament how much intelligence have we left behind that. The taliban will either destroy or with willingly use against us.

"So that renders the deal null and void and there were many so-called escape hatch is inherent in that deal so president biden to say. Oh i didn't have any options. Rather disingenuous he went on to say this back on july eighth. There is not a conclusion that in fact the afghan fighting forces cannot defeat the taliban oh he also disputed and continues to dispute intelligence briefings intelligence given to him that predicted a rapid collapse of the afghan government. He said that's not true. And it was all as biden. Put it in his twenty twelve vice presidential debate with paul ryan larquie. We're on the malarkey express. Are you enjoying the ride. No this was all a cornucopia of wishful thinking and happy talk and half truths and yes blatant deceptions. It was justification of alleged of foreign policy. Realism let Well was swat in the losin and comforting talking points but matters continue to get worse for president biden as critics on both sides of the aisle pan the comments he made japan and to see this to abc's george stephanopoulos about the administration's afghan withdrawal and again we. We're doing the old soft shoe. We now as president biden of course Took to the podium to give us an update on corona virus and the need for a booster for those of us who have been vaccinated as a result of the spread the surge of the adult variance. Then he turned heel as she was being bombarded with questions about what. The heck is going on in afghanistan. Are we going to get our people out. What about the some fifty six thousand afghantistan interpreters and aids the stepped up to aid our military over america's longest war the ran duration of twenty years. Begging the question is that war ever going to be over but once again was it a diversionary tactic squirrel. Look over. here it's an old magician's trick. Right to have the american people look in exactly the wrong place at the right time or my being a little skeptical. Perhaps a little jaded. Perhaps a little bit cynical. I don't think so so. He refused to take any questions whatsoever. As to this horrific ratchet scenario that we are seeing unfolding in afghanistan. I guess sony got a gun gonna get a lot worse before it gets better..

I mean it's nothing more than gibberish. This point if you've been listening to him this from the swampy halls of government government well these days. He's got about as much credibility as the taliban too harsh. Well think about this. As rich lowry pointed out in politico the hallmark of then candidate biden's twenty twenty campaign was promised to always be a straight shooter. The onset of the pandemic biden said. I will always tell you the truth. This is the responsibility of a president. That's what is owed to the american people when it comes to afghanistan. Are we hearing the truth. In his inaugural address. He said there is truth and there are lies. Pretty black and white pleaded pretty cut and dried. He promised he made a distinct promise. Not only to be a unifier. But we'll set that aside for the moment but he said i will always level with. You is leveling with us now. Let's go back to july eighth showing. That was the date of that now.

Who Are the Pennsylvania Dutch?

Your brain on facts where you can get swag and bonus content and you totally should and i couldn't think of an intro this week so my name's moxy and this is your brain on facts in the sixteen. Hundreds most of the people living in that region were the native americans. The all gone quinlan. Pay the susquehanna knock and others by seventeen hundred or so. All that changed as the dutch and english try to lay claim to the land on either side of the delaware river a century after that settlers from europe horrid into the area and claimed even moorland. Many of these new arrivals were german. Speaking and they brought with them a number of different religious traditions. Although many of them were staunch lutherans and protestants. There were also amish. Mennonite and anna baptist be venerated the saints of the roman catholic church and used prayers and liturgical blessings for everyday activities when it came to matters of healing they often included consecrated objects and invocations in tandem with herbal remedies. Sacred symbols were invoked for protection of the family but more on all that stuff later. These germans in pennsylvania became known as the pennsylvania dutch. They weren't dutch as the previous sentence. Should have indicated so why the name the most common explanation is that dutch was a corruption of deutsche which means german. But it's at least as likely that it had to do with what the word dutch meant. At that time in eighteenth and nineteenth century english dutch was used to refer to the whole broad germanic region encompassing modern day netherlands germany belgium austria and switzerland at the time the pennsylvania dutch left europe germany. As we think of it didn't actually exist. It was an amorphous. Mass of duchy's kingdoms and smaller states. Let me throw a surprise third contender into the ring.

Only 80's Kids Will Fear This

"You're walking along the path in the woods. Maybe you're on a hike. Maybe you're headed to a picnic. The sun is shining and the warm breeze. Ruffles your hair suddenly. You're halted in your step. Your back foot is sinking into the ground. You try to play your other foot firmly to lever yourself out now. Both feeders sinking. It's quicksand. You'll be swallowed alive. You struggle to get free but that only makes it worse you'll be sucked under in a matter of seconds except my name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. Let me open. Today's topic that being things eighties. Kids were taught to be afraid of that. Aren't actually things we need to be afraid of i. This topic was voted on by supporters at patriot dot com slash your brain on facts and secondly that the research led me in directions. I wasn't expecting so the final product is as much a surprise to me as it will be to the listener. You do when your clothes catch fire and it always seemed like when not if the same thing you never see anyone on. Tv or youtube do when they find themselves doing surprise johnny storm. 'cause play. Stop drop enroll. Earning close burn you. Stop drop and roll because people burn to a message from the new jersey department of community affairs bureau virus thing if you try to tell me that a single year of elementary school passed in the eighties without the stop. Drop and roll lesson. I call you a liar. You were going to catch fire early. That much was clear but as someone who hates her home with wood and has been through two house fires and a lightning strike. Let me test that catching fire is not the inevitability we were led to believe but the lesson wasn't wrong as much as it was. Maybe a little late children's clothes and blankets catching on fire had been a common tragedy in households for centuries back in olden times when your heat and light and not a small amount of entertainment all came from some manner of flame. My mother's family actually lost a little one that way. Time and human advancement helped to drive down the frequency of juvenile incendiary casualties candles gateway to gaslight which was replaced with light bulbs and fireplaces were replaced with heat pumps the ignition sources were fewer and farther between but technology is nothing if not a double edged sword enter at the same time synthetic fabrics which rather than burning like cotton and wool would burn drip spread and adhere to skin. The truth of the matter is eighties. Babies were among the first kids to have a substantially lower risk of clothing fire incidents. Thanks to nineteen seventy five's formation of the consumer product safety act. Well actually a lot to nineteen fifty. Three's flammable fabrics act. But then i guess we should go back to nineteen forty-five end gene. Autry for those without a standing dinner reservation at golden corral for four thirty gene autry was a cowboy crooner who made his mark in radio tv and films for over three decades back in where a brand is a brand where the long hunt being celebrity. He had merch including branded cowboy costumes for all the little ones at halloween thousands and thousands of these were sold across the country. Then the tragedies began between late nineteen forty two and continuing until at least nineteen fifty four. An unknown number of children were badly badly burned. When the fuzzy fabric of the chaps came in contact with an ignition source and the entire garment would catch. It was three long years from the first incidents where people began to understand that something specific was wrong. Here that the material used for the chaps was the cause of these tragedies it was so flammable the entire outfit would go up in a matter of seconds before the child or parents even knew what was happening to react. This was the nineteen forties a time. Well before the constant global connectivity that we've been used to for twenty plus years so news of these incidents remained is located and the picture incomplete.

"Most without equal for this recipe you will need one each skylark thrush quayle ortolan lapping. Golden plover partridge woodcock. -til guinea hen guinea fowl. Wild duck red pheasant. Wild goose boostered and fake pecker pluck and got the birds then stuff the smallest bird into the next smallest birds cavity and so on until you have one neutron star of bird meet paraphrased from seventeenth century cookbook and you thought her duck in was a new thing. My name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Two days after this episode drops. It is thanksgiving in the united states and the supporters at patriot. Dot com slash. Your brain on facts voted to go. Turkey talk today. So let's go through the myths and misconceptions by working our way through a painting an odd choice as this is an audio only medium. Certainly luckily we don't have to pick just one painting. Most paintings depicting the first thanksgiving in giant air quotes of sixteen twenty. One contain the same things about of puritan settlers dressed in austere black clothing. With bright metal buckles gathered around a table laden with food. Maybe the family patriarch is offering a prayer and a small group of native americans can be seen in the background. Maybe one or two in the foreground. If i were to show you jennie. Augusta browns combs. The first thanksgiving or the first thanksgiving by louise jerome farris painted within a year of each other in the early twentieth century. Incidentally you'd say oh. Yeah that was in my history book which year all of them probably. That's how we've been taught to think of historical thanksgiving's but we're not school kids anymore. So it's time to update that image paintings of the first thanksgiving referred to that feast in sixteen twenty one in plymouth massachusetts. What we actually know about the feast. Concretely is very limited. It mostly comes from a single letter. Written by a communist named edward winslow two hundred and twenty years later in eighteen forty one. His letter was published in chronicles. Of the pilgrim fathers by boston writer and publisher alexander young and it was young. Who called the gathering. The first thanksgiving even though the word thanksgiving doesn't appear anywhere in winslow's letter that feast wouldn't have been thanksgiving to the pilgrims. Puritans did observe thanksgiving days after fortunate events like a good harvest. The were religious observances. People spent the day in church often in silent prayer and they fasted rather than feasted. It's almost the polar opposite of the way we celebrate thanksgiving today. So that day wasn't thanksgiving and it wasn't even the first for a few reasons for starters. It didn't happen a second time. Let alone annually. So it can hardly be said to be the first of anything it would take more than two hundred years for an autumn. Feast referred to as thanksgiving too widely proliferate second. It wasn't the first meal shared by europeans and native americans in the new world. A reasonable drive from my home here in. Virginia is the berkeley plantation where a thanksgiving feast was held this one by the europeans alone. Three dozen settlers arrived in the chesapeake bay in sixteen nineteen on a ship. Captain by a man who had survived the winter of sixteen o nine in the jamestown colony a winter referred to as the starving time after a rough two and a half months at sea and another week on inland waterways. They finally arrived at berkeley hundred later called berkeley plantation on december fourth. They disembarked assembled a meal. From what shifts rations. They still had ham and wasters probably and said prayers of thanksgiving. It was declared that their arrival must be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty god end so it was for two whole years in march of sixteen twenty two. The poyton having noticed that the settlers weren't leaving and in fact were expanding their territory and kept trying to convert and civilize them attacked berkeley and other settlements killing over three hundred fair playboys if you ask historians in maine they'll tell you the first. Such meal happened not in sixteen twenty one in massachusetts but in sixteen. O seven in papa main. The popham colony barely lasted a year. Thanks to a fire in their storehouse during the particularly harsh winter and miscalculations like staying in a four right on the shore rather than moving inland where the forest could provide a windbreak.

"There's a drink they make in chicago that boasts about how few people actually enjoy. Its bitter wormwood flavor if bars even had a bottle of it. They probably never opened it when the manufacturer ran a social media contest to come up with a new slogan albeit an unofficial one. They got suggestions like when you need to unfriendly someone in person turning taste. Buds into taste enemy is free years. And what soap washes its mouth out with but believe it or not. It's catching on my name's moxy and this is your brain on facts pop quiz. What is the most popular liquor in the world. While you mold that over here's a quick primer on a small segment of the panoply. That is the world alcohol. Low alcohol beverages are made all over the globe by mixing something containing starch or simple sugars with water adding yeast or allowing wild yeast and bacteria to invade and leaving it to ferment wherein the east eat the shiver and because ethanol and carbon dioxide these beers wines and the like can be made from any fruit grain and even some tree saps like palm and birch. Anything with natural. Sugar will do in colonial america brewing with pumpkins and other winter. Squashes was actually fairly common. But if you take your beer or wine and distill it meaning to boil it and collect the condensed steam thus removing the water and making the drink stronger. Now you've got something that's where we get vodka brandy whisky and all other drinks of spiritus nature. That's what we're talking about today. The weirdest and most wonderful who humanity has come up with on the whole. I am ruling out craft beers. Because will you know how craft beers are even trying to restrict searched liquor. The google machine kept popping up craft beer. after craft beer beer made with pizza or chilies or fermented shark. Fan or bull testicles goat brain or stags semen not a word of ally. Didn't make any of those up but back to the question. Of the most favoured firewater there is a lot of whiskey in the world for sure but with all of its subcategories consumed across the us and canada and of course ireland their credited with inventing it. After all though they called it ishiba the water of life. No it's not whiskey looking. They drink a lot of vodka in russia. That is true but it's not vodka you know where else they have. A lot of people china one point. Four billion to be specific. And it's the chinese spirit buys you. That is drunk more than any other. And i'm guaranteed be mispronouncing that because i have not been trained in any inflected languages. Sorry it's the world's most popular liquor by volume selling more than ten billion with a b. leaders every year more than all the vodka and whisky in the world combined by you is a vast category of clear yet complex spirits that have played a prominent role in china's drinking culture since the dynasty. It's been cold light. You harsh alcohol or showed you burnt wine. Today is called baiju which translates to white spirits. In contrast to chinese fermented grain alcohols known has kwangju or yellow wine. It's usually distilled from for meant it sorghum.

Names aren't as big a force in by shoe as they would be in the west where you might swear by jack daniels and never touch jim beam or you only drink hennessy. When you're out restaurants and families all do their own styles and it changes a lot. Regionally brand names. Her barely a factor. But i do want to mention one reaching fung. The brands only been around since two thousand. But it's declared itself the oldest distillery in china because its parent company stumbled upon the ruins of six year old facility when they were undergoing renovations in the ninety s. There technically correct the best kind of correct. Ju can be divided into six subcategories divided by their fragrances. Honey layered light rice sauce and thick. None of which would help me make a decision. If i was buying it in the shops it said that western pallets tend to favor the lighter and sweeter fragrances. And it's not very surprising. Baiju is rare in the us though you can find it in certain thoroughly stocked bars and it might be a while before it catches on people who have tried it often describe it as tasting like sweaty socks or rotten fruit and other things. That don't make me wanna reach for one. In other words to the uninitiated. it tastes weird at best.

"I am about to or I am going to die either expression is correct. These were the last words of seventeenth century, French, Jesuit, priest grammarian, and man after my own Heart Dominique Boehner. Narrowly, edged out by eighteenth century French Aristocrat who declared I see you have made three spelling mistakes. As. He read over his own death warrant. We assign a lot of significance to last words hoping that we'll leave some deep philosophical epitaph or something funny like what's this button do? But you may end up with last words like American author, Henry David Thoreau who simply said Moose. Indian. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Many people think Irish playwright and poet Oscar Wilde's last words were either this wallpaper goes or I do. That would be typical wild but there are two small factual inaccuracies in this retelling. The actual quote is this wallpaper and I are a duel to the death either it goes or I do. And he said that a few weeks before he died. Oscar Wilde's actual last words were a mumbled prayer. He did also say toward the end of his life as he lay in bed sipping champagne I am dying beyond my means. With about a third of the world being Christian it's not surprising that God gets mentioned a fair amount. As the clock was winding down for one of the baddest. Of Golden Age Hollywood Cancer Stricken Joan Crawford her housekeeper began to pray aloud at her bedside. Crawford summoned her remaining strength and said, don't you dare ask God to help me. A priest was at the bedside of Francois Marie Oh, Rhett the philosopher firebrand known as will tear. The priest implored him to renounce the devil voltaire considered his advice but decided this is no time to be making new enemies. German romantic behind took a different view as he lay dying of tertiary syphilis. God will forgive me. He said that's his job. A quick tangent while the dead have been in our collective fears and folklore since the caveman days, our modern interpretation of Sambas is strongly influenced by the ravages syphilis. Its Body count his paltry when compared with things like the black death. But the five million people at killed in the Fifteenth Century alone definitely qualify for epidemic status. Syphilis comes in distinct stages. Primary Syphilis is characterized by painless sores on the genitals or mouth, which typically heal on their own. The second stage usually presents with a rash and fever. These resolve and the disease enters the latent stage which can last for years. You're not infectious in the latent stage, but the bacteria may still be damaging your heart bones, nerves, and brain. People would think they were no longer sick which was just as well since there was no cure anyway. Tertiary Syphilis the third stage. The skin may be covered by growths that break down into lesions that spread unchecked. The disease can away bone and caused tremendous pain. Sufferers could also experience numbness and difficulty with motor functions, vision problems leading to blindness and dementia. which combined left people shambling down cobblestone streets with their faces routing off. If you bumped into such a person under a ready gas lamp on a cold Monday night, you'd probably be willing to believe they were a corpse who had gotten elusive. It's grave. Will Save, the debate for the spread of syphilis whether it started in North America or Europe for another day. We have these last words because someone was there here in record them. Sadly, that wasn't the case with Albert. Einstein one of the greatest scientific minds in history. He was not alone in the room when he passed away but he understandably spoke his final words in his mother tongue and the nurse that was attending him didn't speak German. Perhaps his final wish was something along the lines of don't let anyone steal my brain and keep it in their desk for years.

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

This popularity certainly wasn't the case when the painting was I hung in the Leuven eighteen o four or for the century subsequent. Neither was popular with critics when the artistic elite who often relegated it to the low end of DAVINCI's work it was basically just another painting. It was so unsocial in fact that it took the better part of twenty four hours before staff even noticed the painting was missing in Nineteen. Eleven. A handyman named Vincenzo Perrugia was working in the museum and he simply waited in a closet until after the museum had closed. Tuck to the painting under his smock walked on out. He was unwittingly aided by a plumber also working in the museum who unlocked a for Peruta when he found himself stuck inside. The police were called and they searched the museum.

"It has been the habit of kings throughout the world to hire tasters to test their food on the off chance. Some oppressed masses poisoned it. But Henry, the eighth cast, a wider net with his paranoia. He wanted to be certain. No one was going to poison him transdermal either meaning through the skin. He ordered that every morning, the servant, the WHO changed the kings sheets had to kiss every part of the sheets, pillows and blankets they had touched to prove they hadn't smeared poison on them. They also had to test for poison on the cushion of his son. Edwards Chamber Pot. Though the historic record doesn't say how? My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The term mad king re entered the common lexicon a few years back. Thanks to George R. Martin's Song of ice and fire books. We'd have more than enough examples from Europe alone to choose from. George. The third born in Seventeen thirty eight was the English king who lost the American colonies. Though anti-monarchists would record stories of bizarre behavior like George Mistaking and trees for Frederick the Great? The king really did have mental health problems that manifested themselves in different periods of his life. During these times, he suffered from insomnia and talked incessant nonsense for hours. It was not uncommon for a single sentence to contain four hundred words. It has long been suspected that King George suffered from Porfirio. A genetic metabolic disorder that causes depression hallucinations, constipation, purple urine, and severe abdominal pain. However, as will come up frequently today new evidence in theories undermined that original thinking. One of the medicines that king was treated with was Gentian. This plant with its deep blue flowers is still used today as a mild tonic that may turn the urine blue. His incessant liquidity as it was called and his habit of talking until foam ran from his mouth are features that can be seen today in patients with extreme cases of mania from psychiatric illnesses such as bipolar disorder. Besides benign sounding herbal treatments, King George would be restrained in a chair with iron straps for hours. He was also bled forced to vomit and starved suffering under the humour old or four humors school, of medicine. A recent study based on the examination of King. George's hair shows high levels of arsenic administered to him as part of the cure, but would have served to only worsen his symptoms. In the last ten years of his life, his son and Heir George, the fourth served as regent. Fans of the show blackadder will remember George the fourth brilliantly portrayed by Hugh Laurie opposite the Tischler, Rowan Atkinson character. A somewhat annoying little side note when the play the madness of George the third was made into a film. In nineteen, ninety four, the title was changed to the madness of King George. Why for fear that American audiences would think it was a sequel and wouldn't go to see it because they hadn't seen the first two. When your business is running countries and even whole empires you WanNa keep that in the family and the best way to ensure that is to make sure everybody marries somebody there already related to. When you say it like that, it doesn't sound like such a good plan. But that was how royal houses conducted themselves for centuries to ensure they retained their fortunes in the days before even a basic understanding of genetics. When close relatives reproduce, it increases their offspring's chances of being affected by. Recessive traits for all kinds of physical and cognitive disabilities, including things like hemophilia and cystic fibrosis, as well as deformities like the Habsburg jaw. These incestuous pairings also run a greater risk of reduced fertility higher infant mortality, congenital birth defects, certain kinds of cancer suppressed immune systems, and overall smaller adult size. A condition referred to as pedigree collapse. Some royal families kept things closer-knit than others.

What's In A Scientific Name

"From loon example of a trial by in Hunan China called Hans Solo to a butterfly Pea flour reminiscent of Georgia. Oh painting called Couture Couturier Turn Tia. The naming of species offers almost as much in the way of entertainment as it does scientific classification. The official rules for naming species set down by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature are surprisingly simple. The name must be spelled with the Latin alphabet and must not be overtly offensive and that's pretty much it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Most of US know that the animals we call by single name such as a horse actually had a two part name in that case equis Columbus. In contrast to astronomical bodies like stars, Asteroids and planets which are under strict naming conventions overseen by committees, there's almost unfettered freedom it comes to zoological nomenclature. The name can even be on sense string of arbitrary letters. While there is a wealth of name fascination to report on from plants to drugs to telescopes. Ourselves today to the Animal Kingdom. For as long as we have had records and probably longer mankind has sought to classify the world around us in an effort to begin to understand it. This is called taxonomy the study of the general principles of scientific classification from the Greek words for order or arrangement and science. Three centuries before the common era aristotle grouped animals I by similarities like where they lived and then hierarchically with humans naturally at the top. Not, every animal fit well into this system though ducks posed a particular problem as they had the bothersome habit of living on water on land and spending time in the air. It would be eighteen hundred years before another natural philosopher as scientists were called, then would try their hand such as Andrei sessile, Pino Italian physician, and botanist who sorted plants by the structure of their fruits and seeds. The first scientist to use a binomial or to name system that we would recognize was Swiss botanist guest sparred Boeing. Some six thousand plants by genus and species in sixteen, twenty three. There were several inconsistent and sometimes conflicting systems of classification already in use when Carolina's wrote his. SYSTEMA naturally in seventeen, thirty five. Laying down the system we use to this day. Lena's was first taxonomic east to list humans as a primate, but he also originally classified whales as. All living things were sorted into them, Feilim class order, family, genus, and species. Many of US memorized that in middle school by way of a new monarch like King Philip came over from great Spain. Housecat for example, is kingdom and Amelia filed them cor data meaning it has spinal cord. Class Mammalia order can Adora family feel a day genus fearless and species cactus. A lion diverges at the genus Pan Terra, which awesomely means reaper of all and species. Leo. So the scientific name for Lion Is Penn Tara Leo. This system can be visualized as an enormous branching tree with its trunk, very broad and its branches increasingly specific. We. Still name some animals in accordance with their appearance with a little poetic license thrown in for good measure. The tiniest and most pastelle of the armored mammals was christened the pink fairy armadillo. A. Hand Size Lizard with a gift from a meese camouflage was given the fairly metal moniker satanic leaf tailed Gecko. It's actual religious beliefs remain a mystery. As advertised, the star nosed mole has a burst of delicate sensory tendrils on the tip of its snout. Also, sacks myuka Flores is an unappealing worm who lives off the bones of dead whales which would explain its name bone eating snot flower. A bacterium that was taken to the International Space Station, and exposed to cosmic radiation earned the Latin moniker for traveler of the void. China boasts a salamander species that can grow to a whopping one point. Eight meters were nearly six feet long. It goes by the name. Hell Bender and this reporter for one will not argue with it.

No relation it was presented in the form of a newscast detailing the invasion of earth by beings from another world clearly bent on our destruction. Listeners thought the broadcast was real. There was mayhem in the streets as as many as a million people fled their homes or armed themselves and made ready to fight off the alien hordes. We know all about the panic that this radio play cost it was in all the papers. Therein lies the problem. Newspapers of the day greatly exaggerated the situation. To begin with not that many people were tuned in to the Mercury Theatre on the air that evening only two percent of households with radios even heard the play. which repeatedly identified itself as such during the performance. Some CBS radio affiliates even cut away from the broadcast in favor of local programming further shrinking the potential audience.

Why then if so few people. and. Fewer still were confused by it did newspapers separately and independently make the situation sound much worse than it was. They were motivated by fear not of aliens but of the radio. The wireless radio was the first real threat to the superiority of the newspaper as the public's primary source of information.

Hidden Histories - Rosewood, Tulsa, Chicago

"Halfway between Tampa and Tallahassee, a hundred yards off state route, twenty four and ten miles from the next town stands a handsome Pale Yellow House with decorative white trim on the two story porch. The house was the only survivor of an episode of such extraordinary violence that it boggles the mind how quickly and completely it was swept under the rug. An entire community was burned to the ground in an incident of racist asymmetrical warfare. And most people have never even heard of it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The community had been or technically still is Rosewood, Florida. It was settled by both black and white people twenty years before the civil war, but the Jim. Crow segregation in the Post Bellum decades put a clear divide into the community. The town was incorporated in eighteen seventy after it got a post office on a train stop and was named Rosewood for the Pink Cedars that were also the base of its economy. Residents worked in lumber, yards, mills, and even a pencil factory. Until the cedars had been overharvested, and the factories began to close. Most of the white residents moved to nearby sumner. But one couple John and Mary right who ran the general store? They were kind to their neighbors, and were known to Slip Candy to the black kids who hung out at the store, possibly because their own children had died young. The white flight continued into the nineteen twenties when Rose Woods population of about two hundred was entirely black plus the rights. The little hamlet got by just fine. Until New Year's Day nineteen twenty-three. Over in Sumner, a woman named Fanny Taylor woke her neighbors, saying a black man had broken into her house and attacked her. Rather than alert sheriff, her husband immediately gathered a group of men. Including clansmen who were in the area for a rally and a tracking dog. the, dog, lead them to the railroad tracks, which led to Rosewood. The mob, which would grow to be three hundred strong got it in their head that they were looking for a black man named Jesse Hunter who had escaped from a chain gang. The dog ran through the open door of a house and back out with that of wagon tracks. When the homeowner swore that no one else had been in his house, the mob tied him to the back of a car and dragged him down a dirt road. Then they tracked down the owner of the wagon whose tracks the dog sniffed. When he also claimed ignorance and innocence, the mob mutilated and killed him. The mob came to the House of Sarah carrier the Taylor's laundries. Two dozen people most of them. Children were hiding inside having heard what was going on already driven out of their homes by fear. For whatever reason the mob was sure that carrier was hiding Jesse Hunter. They fired on the House and carrier. Sons returned fire. When it was over both Sarah and her son Sylvester carrier had been fatally shot, though Sylvester had managed to kill two of their assailants. Had, anyone bothered to talk to Sarah carrier about Fannie, Taylor. She would have been able to tell them about Taylor's lover. Her white lover who she had been with before the attack.

Hidden Histories

"Four and ten miles from the next town stands a handsome Pale Yellow House with decorative white trim on the two story porch. The house was the only survivor of an episode of such extraordinary violence that it boggles the mind how quickly and completely it was swept under the rug. An entire community was burned to the ground in an incident of racist asymmetrical warfare. And most people have never even heard of it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The community had been or technically still is Rosewood, Florida. It was settled by both black and white people twenty years before the civil war, but the Jim. Crow segregation in the Post Bellum decades put a clear divide into the community. The town was incorporated in eighteen seventy after it got a post office on a train stop and was named Rosewood for the Pink Cedars that were also the base of its economy. Residents worked in lumber, yards, mills, and even a pencil factory. Until the cedars had been overharvested, and the factories began to close. Most of the white residents moved to nearby sumner. But one couple John and Mary right who ran the general store? They were kind to their neighbors, and were known to Slip Candy to the black kids who hung out at the store, possibly because their own children had died young. The white flight continued into the nineteen twenties when Rose Woods population of about two hundred was entirely black plus the rights. The little hamlet got by just fine. Until New Year's Day nineteen twenty-three. Over in Sumner, a woman named Fanny Taylor woke her neighbors, saying a black man had broken into her house and attacked her. Rather than alert sheriff, her husband immediately gathered a group of men. Including clansmen who were in the area for a rally and a tracking dog.

Black Sparrow and Buffalo Soldiers

"Since colonial times African Americans have fought in America's wars. In every war in fact, The first person to die in the revolutionary. War Christmas attics was black. Black soldiers have put their lives on the line for a country that for centuries enslaved segregated and discriminated against them. Until the Korean War black served in segregated units under racist leadership and often relegated to labor and service units. Despite the continuous discriminatory treatment that denied blacks full participation in America's military efforts, these brave men and women lived lives that deserve to be remembered. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Possibly the best known all black military unit comes with a bit of mystery in its history. They were called Buffalo soldiers, though there are competing reasons as to why. In eighteen, sixty, six and active congress created six all black peacetime regiments later consolidated into four, the ninth and Tenth Cavalry and the Twenty Fourth and twenty fifth infantry. Initially the Buffalo soldier regiments were commanded by whites with being forbidden from holding the ranks officers. These. Troops often faced extreme racial prejudice from the army establishment. Many officers including George Armstrong custer of boo and a his there. Refused to command black regiments, even though it costs them promotions. Further black troops could only serve west of the Mississippi. River, because many whites didn't want to see armed black men near their communities. It even sometimes happened that the buffalo soldiers suffered deadly violence at the hands of civilians. The Buffalo soldiers main duty was to support the nation's westward expansion by protecting settlers, building roads and other infrastructure and guarding the US mail. They served a variety of posts in the southwestern great planes, taking part in most of the military campaigns during the decades long Indian wars during which they compiled a distinguished record with eighteen buffalo soldiers awarded the Medal of honor. We don't have time today to dwell on the irony of African American soldiers, fighting native people on behalf of government that accepted neither group as equals. The exceptional performance of these soldiers helped to overcome resistance to the idea of black officers paving the way for the first african-american graduate from West Point Henry O flipper. Who will hear more about later? But. Fellow soldiers played significant roles in many other military actions. They took part in defusing the little known eighteen, ninety two Johnson County war in Wyoming, which pitted small farmers against wealthy ranchers and a band of hired gunmen. They also fought in the Spanish American and Philippine American wars and played a key role in maintaining border security during the high intensity, military conflict along the US Mexico border during the Mexican revolution. In Nineteen Eighteen, the tenth cavalry fought at the Battle of ambos Nogales where they assisted enforcing the of the Mexican federal and militia forces. Discrimination played a role in diminishing the buffalo soldiers involvement in upcoming major conflicts. During world. War One the racist policies of President Woodrow Wilson among whose claims to infamy include segregating federal offices led to black regiments, being excluded from the American Expeditionary Force, and placed under French command for the duration of the war. The first time ever that American troops were placed under the command of a foreign power. Then prior to World War Two, the ninth and Tenth Cavalry Regiments were essentially disbanded, and most of their troops moved to service roles. However the Ninety Second Infantry Division known as the Buffalo Division did see combat during the invasion of Italy while another division that included the original Buffalo Soldiers of the twenty fifth infantry. Regiment fought in the Pacific theater. The last segregated. US Army regiments were disbanded in nineteen,

It's The End Of The World! (Again

"In the village of Giddy Shem Devon England in the eighteenth century lived a woman named Joanna. South caught southpaw became convinced that she had supernatural powers and began selling seals of the Lord essentially tickets to get into heaven which people bought. She declared that she was the woman of the apocalypse as foretold in the Bible and that she would give birth to the new Messiah on October nineteenth eighteen forty one despite the fact that she was sixty four years old. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We are living through a more uncertain than usual time right now. I wouldn't say it's the end of the world but others might and half history is rife with people who claim to have been told or to worked out when the end of days is coming. The list on Wikipedia is twenty four page downs. And that's really only focusing on Judeo Christian. Prophecies everyone from peasant girls two months to the mathematician who popularized the use of the decimal point. How Theory Cotton Mather? The influential Puritan Minister who played a decisive role in the Salem witch trials proclaimed in sixteen ninety one that Doomsday would occur in sixteen ninety seven basing the date on events that were current to him that he interpreted as fulfillment of Biblical prophecy when sixteen. Ninety-seven passed uneventfully. Mother changed his forecast. First to seventeen o six than seventeen sixteen and finally seventeen seventeen. Mother didn't make any more between seventeen seventeen and his death in seventeen twenty eight but he was still certain that the end was near Jonas Wendell along with other adventist preachers predicted. The Second Coming of Christ would occur between eighteen. Seventy three and eighteen seventy four after the prediction didn't bear out Nelson Bar. You're of follower of Wendell reinterpreted prediction to mean that. Jesus had returned in eighteen. Seventy four but he was invisible that does make it harder to disprove all grant you then. There was mother. Shipton the witch of York a fascinating blend of historical figure and embellished character. Born Ursula South the older and a thunderstorm in a cave in fourteen eighty eight to a teenage mother who refused to name. The father mother Shipton looked every bit like the iconic which would he skin hunched posture. Hooked nose the works. She made a number of predictions all of them in verse like Shakespeare's Weird Sisters in Macbeth. She said to have predicted Henry. The eighths disillusion of the monasteries the great fire of London the reign of Elizabeth I and even possibly the invention of airplanes on the telephone but the first written version of her predictions didn't come out until eighty years after her death and some of the authors have admitted to adding to what she supposedly said. So we're not one hundred percent certain if mother Shipton really said the world to an end shall come in eighteen hundred and eighty one but we can be fairly certain that it didn't the cave in which she was born is now a tourist attraction along with the nearby petrifying well items placed in the well are said to turn to stone. And that's more of a loose interpretation than an outright fable. The water in the well has a very high mineral content and those minerals will attach themselves to anything in the water making. It look like the object is turning to stone. Bona snacked the witches in Macbeth referred to usually as the weird sisters but were originally called the wayward sisters meaning. Good women who lost their way and been seduced by the allure of Magic Doomsday Predictions. Could come from the highest offices in the land. But that didn't make them anymore. True Pope Sylvester the second game pope in nine ninety nine seat with the auspicious-sounding date of the year one thousand looming so Vesta in a number of other Christian leaders foretold the coming of Jesus at the turn of the Millennium and many people believed it like really believed there were riots in the streets. Thousands of Christians fled to the holy city of Jerusalem and many attended what was expected to be particularly interesting midnight. Mass at Saint Peter's Basilica on New Year's Eve when the morning of January first on and it was clear the world had not ended semester and the other Christian leaders revised their predictions. Have you picked up on that trend yet? If Judgment Day hadn't kicked off on the anniversary of Jesus's Birth. It must do on the anniversary of his death. So so Lester. The second declared the world would end in ten thirty three but he was already fifty four years old and sure enough. Didn't have to hear any gainsaying when the apocalypse didn't come the second time because he'd been dead for thirty years a century later pope innocent. The third had a less obvious and markedly less nice reason for his end. Time Prophecy innocent blamed the Muslims Christians and Muslims have had kind of assorted past and innocent viewed Muslims as agents of Satan to his mind. The apocalypse would occur six hundred and sixty six years after the founding of Islam. Which would put it in the year. Twelve eighty four. He too died well before he could see how wrong he was predicting. The end of the world requires perseverance. If at first you don't succeed try try again. You've got to stick with it. Like the founder of the Worldwide Church of God Herbert Armstrong along with his sons Richard and Garner Armstrong picked up quite a following even before claiming that the world would end in nineteen thirty. Six and only members of his church would be saved the Great Depression and the dust bowl probably made it easy for people to believe that our collective ticket was about to get punched Armstrong then turned his sights to nineteen forty-three where the second war to end all wars lent credence to his doomsday claims when life settled into the post war normal Armstrong amended his prediction to Nineteen seventy-two a significant margin of error. People sold all of their possessions to pay for travel to Petra in Jordan. Which most of us know as the Resting Place of the holy grail from the third and Final Indiana Jones. Movie where they would be safe from Roy Moore three which Armstrong said would be all of Europe led by Germany against the US and the UK. World War three did not in fact begin. Nineteen seventy-two or the next mandate of Nineteen seventy-five in December nineteen fifty four Chicago Tribune headline read Dr Warrens of disasters in World Tuesday worst to come in one thousand nine fifty five. He declares the doctor was just passing along the predictions made by Dorothy Martin a fifty four year old housewife from Oak Park Illinois. Martin believed that aliens from the Planet Clarion had beamed messages into her brain informing her that a. Masoud flood would soon destroy the planet. Her prophecies attracted a small group of followers including the doctor who called themselves seekers. Many of the seekers quit. Their jobs. Sold their belongings and removed any medal from their bodies which Martin said would be essential for boarding the alien ship. That would take them away. They gathered at Martin's home on Christmas. Eve Nineteen fifty five sing carols while they waited to be beamed to safety. This wasn't the first time the group had gathered for their exodus. The aliens were supposed to come on December seventeenth but didn't then the eighteenth twenty first and finally the twenty fourth. As the night of Christmas Eve wore on Martin's followers became understandably inpatient finally at four forty five in the morning on Christmas Day Martin announced that God had been so impressed by their actions. He was no longer going to destroy the earth. Nice recovery. Though Martin had few followers their experience has left a lasting legacy. The group had been infiltrated if you will by a small group of psychologists and students from the University of Minnesota led by social psychologist. Leon festinger festinger wrote about the whole experience in when prophecies fail a social and psychological study of a modern group that predicted the destruction of the world. Kind of a lengthy title. But we'll go with it. It was in this book that he began to explore something. You've probably heard of cognitive dissonance. That's when two disparate ideas exist in your head at the same time and you feel uncomfortable until you can find a way to make them fit somehow. Festinger observed cognitive dissonance in the seekers. Who had to repeatedly convince themselves that Martin was right even after seeing with their own is that she wasn't

"Dissolve one packet of Lemon Jello in one can or one cubes worth of Beef Bouillon. Add lemon juice and allowed to cool. Add three hard boiled eggs diced. One Cup diced celery. Half an onion grated one cup miracle whip and one can of corn beef chopped chill until set slice and serve congratulations. You've just made corned beef luncheon salad. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Use It up where it out make it do were do without my grandmother would say. I thought that was clever saying from her side of the family but it was actually a slogan from World War Two encouraging the public to use fewer resources so more could be diverted to the war effort. We're all getting a taste of that as we're hunker down unable to shop at the spur of the moment and much more limited in our choices when we do thankfully we do have precedent to fall back on after all people are still alive today it through the Great Depression children. The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.

"Welcome back. Everybody. Ted Randall's talking baseball last week loyal listeners here hurt his devote time to be brewed at long last receiving the medal of freedom. Now more about the big fella after a decorated career at the Washington Post. Our next guest is taken long form writing to a whole new place. Her biographies of Mickey Mantle and say, it'd be Colfax became bestsellers. She regards those as two thirds of her trilogy. And now another blockbuster entitled the big fella Babe Ruth and the world he created from HarperCollins books, which is earned for the Seymour medal award awarded annually by the society of American baseball research sabre and a nomination for the biography of the year from the national book, Critics Circle, here's the Babe Ruth of biographers. Jane? Lady Jane, great to have you on the show. Jane, this is an extraordinary work of scholarship. It took eight years encompass more than two hundred fifty interviews for a subject that so much has been written about throughout history. Making this a quite a challenge. And this guy was on your radar fruit for years for decades. Yeah. I started out believe it or not is early in the eighties and nineties wanting to write a novel about him because I figured that was the only way you could inhabit the caricature that he had become, you know, bandied leg big chested guy that everybody thought he was always, of course, as you know, he was why came to the Red Sox. He was a kind of dude it nineteen fourteen. But what happened is that the ability to research and dig back into history and to basically rewrite history changed with the digital revolution. And so I was able to find in documents on its state archives at a newspaper records the story about his childhood that had never been told. And a lot of you set aside, you sideline a lot of mythology about him, for example that he was an orphan. Yeah. There were two conflicting and completely irreconcilable. This was that he was an orphan the other was that he was an incorrigible meaning a boy who had to be sent away by the courts to be reformed at a school called St Mary's industrial school on the western edge of Baltimore City. And neither of those was true. But those mis prospered in the absence of him having anything to say on on the matter. He would get angry when people called him and offered and say, no, no, no, I had parents. But he never went further than that. And the truth is that his parents were divorced which was something you didn't brag about or you didn't have Barbara Walters or dice player minutes. Offer. You a guests. Shot to go explain and and elicit sympathy for what was basically a Dickensian childhood. So his parents were divorced. His father accused his mother of being both an adulterer at an alcoholic. He kicked her out at nineteen o six custody of the kids, and basically that sealed little Georgia's fate because his father had no interest or time for him and sent him loss to live at the at Saint Mary's industrial school, which is run by a lay order of Catholic brothers called as a very brothers. You got to sources about the baby that no one had before. Well, again, I it was because you're able to find things now in documents that my very able predecessors couldn't have found for example, the the divorce of George route senior and Kate schamberger Reuss was it was made news and the Baltimore in Baltimore papers is in the Baltimore Sun in may nineteen o six, but you'd have had to read, you know, microfiche for hours weeks months in order to find that item since there was no there was no wave click a mouse and say, you know, give me everything Georgia Georgia's senior where now it just pops up in front of your. Three and astonishing gift that you received from the cyber God's back late. Babe Ruth became Babe Ruth incorporated in here. In your book. We meet a failed newspaper cartoonist in adman named Christy Walsh, who created the template for the modern celebrity athlete. How did they meet in one thousand nine hundred twenty one Kristie wells? Well, Christy Walsh was a master is really the original Jerry Maguire, and he was a master of spin. And damage control words that didn't exist in in nineteen twenty one. But apparently, and this is according to his nephew, Richard. He was so desperate. Having just lost his job in in a car ad agency that he found out where babe was staying and climbed up the fire escape. Cold opened the window of his room found him in bed with a blonde climbs through the open window slapped him on a button and said, I want to represent you. Wow. Who is the kind of moxy that Babe Ruth. I think would've appreciated also the fact that he was offering him for his ghost-written stories columns that would appear in papers around the country and most predominantly in New York, you know, ten times what he had received before. But by nineteen twenty seven year, he hits the sixty home runs because it Kristie Walsh. He's making more money off the field. And he is on it. Yeah. He was the model for modern celebrity. I mean, Walsh really was visionary. And in Ruth he had a guy who was in every sense of the word game. If you said, they please go, you know, hold a lobster on national lobster day. He'd do it. If he sees hold a dead. Turtle. He'd do it you pose with anyone and anything that would, you know, broaden his appeal and his image and Walsh was smart enough to. Physician him as the first really major spokesperson. You know that he he did more in nineteen in the nineteen twenties. And Peyton Manning is doing that. It's hard to believe because Payton's on every commercial. We're with Jane Levy who has written another blockbuster. The big fella Babe Ruth in the world. He created from HarperCollins books, and and as part of the celebrity janey takes on Commissioner Landis, who takes exception to the fact that he's endorsing everything and bay feels that he has a right to make a living after the season. Yeah. He one of the things that surprised me. The most about him was how really well-spoken and forthright. He was about players writes back at a time when they had none. So one of the ways that these guys made money in the off season was to do barnstorming tours and everybody did them. But of course, Babe Ruth did them bigger and better than anyone else. And there is a crazy rule on the books that said that if you had played in the World Series, you couldn't barnstorm because. The people who ran baseball back then were dimwitted about marketing and did not understand that it was to their advantage for Babe Ruth to go out into the countryside the game and promote the game to people who remember there's no radio. They can't hear it. They can't see it. Right. And Babe Ruth said, you know. Well, gee, I think I have a right to make a living doing what I do best. And by the way, I think what we're doing is great for baseball Landis who was busy trying to consolidate his power as the first Commissioner in the fall of twenty one and who has his own problems because there are investigations have him in congress because he won't give up his job on the on the federal bench in Chicago. You know, makes a big case out of this and says if you go, you know, you're you're you're gonna be fine. You're going to be suspended Ruth tests him and does anyway. And of course, he was. Finding suspended. He lost his World Series money. And he was suspended for a quarter of the twenty two season. How out of balance Jane is the popular perception of the bay with the reality. You know, I think that it's. It's so. Like, so many other mess. It's a matter of degree as you point out. So yeah, he overate. Yeah. He drank too, much beer. Yes. He availed himself of all the pleasures of flesh. But remember when he got out of Saint Mary's, this guy who is supposed to be this wild, man. The kid who was supposed to run amok on the waterfront of Baltimore. His first instinct was to get married so nineteen fourteen when he gets out of St Mary's at age nineteen it signs with the Baltimore Orioles. Minor league team is sold to the Red Sox. He meets a waitress Helen Helen Woodford who become selling Reuss, and he gets married. His first instinct was not to go nuts. But to try to give himself the family. He never had a sure it the marriage didn't work out he discovered that. She was. Sixteen. He was nineteen. He didn't know how to be a husband. He didn't know how to be a father. That's hardly surprising. But again, his first instincts for to try to create what he'd never had as. Early in the book you have in in our remaining moments. Jane Levy early in the book, you have almost a full page of nicknames. Do you do you think fans have any understanding of how overwhelming his celebrity was in his time? No. And that's really probably what I was trying to do. And I found thirty thirty eight more of them by the way since since I wrote the book. No, there was no way to capture the bigness of him. And so sports writers of the day. And remember sportswriting was just coming into the fullness of tabloid journalism and they're competing for take to get the best of him in the most from him. And they can't find a word with all those things put together they're still not enough big enough to encompass how big he was. He was a revolutionary, Ed. Reinvented baseball. He took it don't hands for away from the micro managers like John McGraw waited who hated Jack done for selling for selling him to the Red Sox and not giants, by the way. He took the game out of their hands, and remade it with his two very very large positive fifty four ounce back, and he he reinvented how how players were thought of that. He created the notion of players entertainers who should be remunerated not just for the balls. He hit outta ballparks. But for the people he brought into them, and he barnstorming against negro leaguers, which was it. He's not the only one to do it. But he was Babe Ruth. And so his sanction of their play and his his willingness to articulate that what she did in the newspapers I spoke volumes. And I know the answer is no, here's no way. You you. You a modern reader can understand how really big he was let me ask you in the in the remaining moments that we have writers back in his day were in close proximity. The babe. And that's all there was as you said. There was no radio. There was no television. It was newspapers, and they brandished his fame and yet there was so much. They did not right about that. They I witnessed the irony is they were as close to him and had such access to him. Again, a word use today, but not in use then, but they didn't write most of what they knew about him personally because everything that was you know, off the field was considered absolutely for boat. And there was a kind of clubhouse omerta, and they just didn't write anything personal. And so while they knew him very, well, they didn't convey that in print which is the opposite of today where the mandate for reporters to write every thought and personal item. And everybody has a phone. For you. Go in our remaining, thirty seconds. What's next for? Jane Levy, you're gonna write the we've had Mickey Mantle. We've had said he Colfax we've had Babe Ruth. I know that's a trilogy. Anything else coming? You got an idea for me it. We'll talk about it off the air. Right now. I mean, Arizona doing book book festivals and collecting this seem more mental which I'm thrilled. Receiving congressional. I'm I'm thinking about a couple of things. But if I say it out loud, you know, what happens now..
