New York state Senate set to pass package of nursing home reforms
"Aimed at changing up the way things are accounted for within the state's nursing home industry. Right as governor, Cuomo and his administration are being investigated for how they handle Cove. It really related matters and nursing homes during the pandemic. New York lawmakers say the goal is more transparency and accountability in this package of bills. One measure would force nursing homes to post any violations on their website, another calls for more stringent inspections and infection control measures. Richard Mullet with a long term care community coalition says few fines have been given out since the start of the pandemic. The only thing that really stopped many facilities from providing extremely sub standard care is the threat of a financial penalty. Another bill takes direct aim at Governor Cuomo mandating the state compile nursing home deaths, regardless of whether the resident was transferred to a hospital. Cuomo isn't finding too many in his corner at this point, White House press secretary Jen Psaki on ABC s this week declined to defend or criticized the governor. There, of course, will be a process. The investigations will leave that to others to determine the appropriate law enforcement authorities to determine how that path is going to move.

Blake Shelton defends 'Minimum Wage' song
"On the phone. Right now is blake shelton it. We got new song out today We do and It's we kicked around actually releasing this song last last year at the end of the year december and and happy anywhere still kind of having its moment at country radio and we didn't want anything to get in the way of that record because that's been fun record to have and didn't want anything to interfere with what it what it may go on to do And so we backed out. And now we're releasing this all minimum wage. Which i've actually had recorded now for Maybe a year or something and and just you know everything. Kinda got thrown spun out last year. Obviously it did for everybody else and and So we're gonna come with a new album that this'll be the first single off of that album and we're pumped about it just because it's it's up campo it's fun and fully energy and and I definitely need some of that in my life and hopefully Everybody kind need some of that. If you put out a song and it does not go number one. Is that a disappointment to you Well that's been a disappoint not just at this point in my career. I mean if you're going to release a solid radio. I mean you're lying to everybody if you say it's not in the back of your mind that you hope it goes number one. I mean you otherwise. You wouldn't even release it to radio and go through the promotion process and you know all the things that you that you have to do to to be a part of that world. I mean you know. I mean you see. Every week somebody is trying to get their record number one and and You know for me. Not that i expect it to go number one but at the same time. I'm disappointed if it doesn't just because i know how hard everybody on the team works to get those things to the top you know and it just try to get done. Blake shelton on with us. What was the first job you had where you made minimum wage our roof houses in ada oklahoma and they may have been more than minimum wage. I think about. I think i got paid eight dollars an hour and i feel like way back then. Minimum wage might have been six dollars an hour or something closer to that. So man i. I stepped right into the big money. Roofing houses you know. I wrote houses to arkansas. But i didn't. I don't know if you started like i did. I had to be tear off. Guy i before i was actually the guy with the shingles is that. Was that your pat. I never worked up to shingle. In two years. I was a tear off and carry. I could carry by the end of the road. I can carry two bottles of shingles up at a time on on my shoulder which is like a hundred and twenty pounds. That was the only time in my life. I was ever in shape. Of course i was still a teenager. So i had that going for me. How do you feel about the return of the mullet. What do people say about yours back. In the day versus you know kind of the new generation of the mullet. Here's how about it. Because i'm a little jealous And that's been honest. i'm. I'm a little jealous that i don't have the mullet. But here's what i've found. Is you know you look at morgan. Wall he's a good looking guy and he's in shape and and when i've tried growing my mullet out this last last year during the quarantine time i realized for me. You can't be fat and have a mullet lock. You know what. I mean in order to get away with it. You have to have something else going for you and you know back in the day when i had one man. I was skinny. And that's not how it is anymore. And so i'm gonna have to. If i'm going to have the mullet. I gotta lose hundred fifty pounds. There's a lot that's a big number man pat is. I'm sorry bobby. Blake this whole controversy about minimum wage. When it finally gets to you that people are. I don't know whatever they are. Do you roll your eyes or do you go to this Well i've learned over the years not to just roll my eyes. You know until. I really get to the bottom of whatever. The particular controversy is that But when i saw this on was i i mean. I don't want him everything but it kind of a role of the is. Because i think if there's if you can find something offensive about this song i mean you're either you're just looking for fight or you're probably not a country music fan to begin with you know it's i. I really can't draw connection between anything controversial. And i love song. But you know it's It's the times we're in. i guess but we're just. We're proud of the song and and we love it. Which is weird. Because as soon as i heard about the controversy i came on and was just railing against these overly woke folks. It's what i was calling him. And then i started to get pushed back for standing up for the fact that it was a metaphor for life in that i was someone who grew up on minimum wage for most of my life. I wasn't. I was just so irritated in ronnie dunn fight. The standing up for two like why in the world is happening with folks. Think you just gotta go okay. Well that's your your take. We're we're going to keep going on with reality on this road and you can take whatever turn you want to Because it's at the end of the day it's a song about if you got love and then you didn't you've got the everything that matters you know And again if there's something offensive about that then i this is not the the world i wanna live in. Have any of your other songs sparked up debate. Like do people get upset about hillbilly bone. Because you know you know you know. Only you know only time that people get upset about that song when we perform it live and trace sexually points In the in the area makes it makes it big deal every time it gets to the chorus like. He's got a point to himself to be sure you understand exactly what he's talking about. I don't know. I don't know i don't know what to say. Oh i i thought he he points to a hillbilly and the crowd. Yeah that's right that's not me up. Blake shelton's got a couple more questions for you. I was talking to devon dawson recently. Who is one of the writers god's country and he told a story about how they they had sent playlist to you a few songs and god's country was one of the first ones on that playlist. Can you just kind of tell me your version of the story. But hearing god's country i was well. I don't think. I heard the other song that they spent because wanted god's country was the first song on that email or whatever i got and i stopped right there. I was on my There's a rumor going around that. I was on tractor But i was actually on skid steer different kind of equipment. But i had a both in that thing and i was i was mowing and doing some things and i figured out how to our. He's not think. I even tried to open the email to see if i could learn how to use my bluetooth and and And i turned it on. And then i was. I was shocked. I was blown away. I couldn't even believe what. I was hearing. 'cause i knew that it was it was a it was game changer. It was that lacombe. Nothing would be the same for any of us involved after this song is far from a career standpoint and and what it was going to to do you know and in my mind anyway because every time you record song you say oh my god this could do this or that And this one seemed like it would just almost Start a new chapter for me. And it did to be honest It's one of the few times that actually had a vision and trick that the my last question for you if twenty eight number ones now twenty eight like once concerts return. You're at the point now where you could do. Two nights in a city playing pretty much all number ones and other massive songs didn't quite number one is that something that you'd want to do is do two nights and a city making sure you get all the hits in what i wanna play in front of a of a full crowd and two nights probably will be one night too many from i guess i guess if people would promise they would come back in the second half then. Yeah that would be a blast. I used to always think that about george strait. I always thought it'd be cool if he did like a marathon like a four or five hour concert just all these number one hits and it was on. Hbo or or something like that. Yeah that's my big idea for george. Anyway he needs it. I think he's he's in the business for some career advice so i'm gonna hit him up. Tell him he loves it. He loves to work. I'll tell you

Mullets when it comes to mullets were suffering from a kind of distortion. One familiar from the tv show madman that series begins in the early nineteen sixties which looks so much more like the nineteen fifties than what we think of. As the sixties the aesthetics we assigned two decades often start mid-decade and then run into the next one but we tend to this decade straggling in favor of a simpler shorthand but this simplification can actually change. How we think about the past and the mullet is an example of this. The enormous smaller belongs as much to the early nineties to lauren rights. Line dancing gym class as the late eighties. Even though we don't remember it that way this brings us back to oscar sick varson.

Joe Exotic special looks at ‘Tiger King’ star's life before the fame
"Tiger King you're going to like what's on Discovery Channel and I love Discovery. It's Ah, it's a show is going to tell us how the Tiger King became the tiger king. What happened to Joe Exotica in the beginning of years of early life is going to be in depth interviews, but even more impressively, the guy I'm getting Ray bring in Hey, was a police art officer at just 20 years old. Through that 80 f DEA, FBI, even secret Service. Hey, worked with undercover and before I go any further on his success. I want to bring him in right now. Derek, how are you? Hey, thanks for having me appreciate it, and I want to make sure it's Derek Love Oscar, right? Sounds good to me. Okay. Call you Derek. Listen, man, I want to talk about this show because I'm when the first ones that got sucked into this tiger King on Netflix. What? It was just what a compelling show you have a show tonight. It's on Discovery Channel watching, but I want to talk about your credentials of 1st 20 years old. You get hired on as a police officer. Then you become a sergeant. You're later assigned to special investigations. You work for the F D, a FBI secret service. There's credentials on and on and on on on even a best selling author. You write this book. The book is called the Undercover Edge. You publish it in 2018 and then bam. Within five days, it's selling out on and bookstores and on Amazon. Is there anything that you ever failed in life, man? A lot of bills a lot of fails, and I actually On someone who embraced failures because faces failures where the lessons are and from those failures. I've learned to push myself more and and try to never make the same mistake twice, but yet listen failures part of life. And if you're not failure, you're not trying. I always Try to push myself beyond what I think I'm capable of. And the only way to really find out what you're capable of to get to a point where you're felling. I've done that many times. And I'm okay with that. I'll continue to do it. Well, Okay, So let's talk about what's happening tonight. Discovery Channel. I love it. They're the programming is second to none. And tonight at 10 P.m. nine Central, You have a show called Joe Exotic before it was King. A snapshot And in this, you tell the story. What made Joe exotic Joe exotic? What happened to him in his childhood? You interview all kinds of people. How did how did this come around? How did this project come around? And what do you think about your experience doing it? It was a great experience, You know? Listen, I don't want to be involved with something that was just capitalizing on the success of the Netflix series. I want to come at it from a different perspective. And, you know, I think from an investigator's point of view, and from what I know our viewers, and I'd like to watch its how the mind works. Why a criminal becomes a criminal, and that's the perspective we took here. Why Joe dot in the way he is so This is kind of a prequel. To the Netflix special. We dive into Joe exotic childhood. His life as a young adult. And how he became the person we know. Today, I tell your king. At one point, there were a bunch of families sitting on the other side of the glass, all pointing at their little babies and the bastard. That's that one's mind at that point, he doesn't have a mullet, and he's not thinking about killing Carol Baskin so and there are people in life l they'll try to point to what changed them. I moved to a different neighborhood. Then I fell in with the wrong crowd and got into drugs. There's always some little apex and little point where life goes the other way. With with Joe Exotic is there like one thing one trigger. You could point you that said, Okay, This is what did it to him. You know, Listen, I'm not a psychologist. But if I had to say for me personally, what I thought was kind of a crossroads where he went wrong way was that is he had a he had a brother, who was really into an apple. They open their store together and Unfortunately, his brother was tragically killed in a drunk driving car accident, and I think that his brother's not only served as like a role model, but also somebody kept Joe on the right path. And as soon as he was no longer there Obviously, the traumatic, you know, Event itself really shook Joe, but also when those future decisions came up after his brother's death, instead of going the right way, he went the long way. And it was just a trickle effect. Where, you know, one bad decision led to three more And I think that was really the moment where Joe lost his way because he lost that role model that he could confide in and look up to Tonight, Joe Exotic Before he was King premieres on investigation, Discovery and such a great channel about second and not again and programming. It's just so compelling, and tonight we're going to be looking at where you are, and it's in depth interviews, even one of his husband's you interview on this law enforcement on and on. It's an end depth. Look at what made Joe exotic Joe exotic in a skin a sub Early days. It really wait, try to take it from a deeper dies. It's Joe exotic from the Netflix special covered really answered the question. How and why he became the way he is today and listen throughout the episode. There's going to be moments where you feel bad for Joe, and there's going to be moments when you're really angry with him, and that's that's intentional week. It's okay to feel bad for someone because of what they experience and it's also okay to feel bad for them. But understand that they're where they should be. Which in this case is in prison, So you know that's that's what we're hoping to achieve here tonight. Well, I can't. I can't wait to watch this. And here's what I'm wondering. When this tiger king came out it was right. It could have been timed better. Derek, listen was right. A cove in 19. Everyone was starved for something to do or watch because we were stuck in our homes and people. Benj, watch this over and over. It was a time It was the topic of our show almost every single day. But with them said he always had accusations that Carol Baskin had killed her first husband. He even went as far to say he fed her to the Tigers. If I've got to think that this special is going to be a huge success, are there already talks in another special where you might be able to look into Carol basket as well? I know there's investigators doing that, in fact, is a special tonight before our special called Tigers. Lies. I don't know the name. I apologize, but it's radar is on right before ours, And it's an investigator that looks into whether or not Carol basket could have been. Responsible for the death of Don Luis and what that means for Joe exotic. So that's something you're into making tonight. Grab some food have. Ah, sit down and tune in for both things were back to back talking with Derek Lava, sir. When you when you watch that show, it's like these can't be real people. Each person is more bizarre and fascinating than than the last one. You talked to give us a couple of people We didn't see maybe on Tiger King that you talked to for this special that are really unique and interesting. Well, you're going to get Ah, I think the biggest one that you're going to hear have is ah phone interview with Joe, exotic ex husband, the one who was actually stood over his bed and put the put the gun in Joe exotic face. He's also in prison right now for murder, and he shed some light on the relationship between him and Joe, but also some of the things that were going on a far polygamy and you know, you know, sex and drugs and I think that you know, the people who visited the do the do did not know about. They did not see from Joe when he came out, put on his whole, you know, show Part of what intrigues me so much about this special is when the Tiger King special the Siri's ended on Netflix it seriously left. Just start for more. Tonight on investigation Discovery. We kind of get that MME Orb because they tried to do a special was mostly zooms and this and that, But tonight there's actually uncovered footage and home movies. Photos that you guys have acquired and that's going to be shown as well. Is that correct? That's correct. It's not going to be just a rehash of the Netflix special. Like I said before, it's the prequel to the Netflix special. So if you enjoyed Tiger King, and you're looking for a little bit more of an in depth perspective of Who Joe is because that's really what we focus on then then this is probably something you should check out. I probably don't want to know the answer to this. They did a pretty good job of hiding any potential animal abuse and the show was that a part of his life, though 100% 1000%, and that's that's why I am part of this is well. This man was responsible for the killing of at least five innocent tigers and himself at court admitted that there were many more and I really hope that when this is all said and done, 10 15 years from now what we remember about this whole Tiger King phenomenon. Is that it was the start off the end of, you know, exploitation and killing of tigers and also that don lose his family get the closure they deserve and find out what happened to their father. If that's what ultimately comes from all of this, you know chaos. And I'm all for it. I hope it's just not for, you know, 15 minutes of fame for Joe and Carol. No,

"As far as we could tell, the only stone, the O. E. D. had left unturned was tops made himself the Reddit user who had originally posted the street machine pages. So we decided to reach out to him. We didn't expect him to respond. We figured it was worth a try while we were waiting for him to get back to US Benjamin fresh producer of decoding started digging around I. He tried to find other places online tops mate hung out because only lead or the images that tops made had posted on Reddit. Those images were all collected on the popular image hosting site called younger or imager depending on how you pronounce it, which allows you to click through everything. Has Uploaded. Ben Started clicking through tops, mates, other imaging posts looking for something that might give him another username or an email address, and then he noticed that one post had been uploaded three years after the original read it post according to Imager it is only been viewed about three hundred times, and as far as we can tell, it has never been linked anywhere not on read it not on twitter Oscar had never seen it catherine had never seen it. It had never popped up in any of the research we did for this piece. The name of the post is an apology to the Oxford English dictionary. Okay. So high. So yes. I called Catherine back to tell her about it. I was like, read it to you. Yeah. Okay. So it's from April twenty, second two, thousand eighteen and it's called an apology to the Oxford English dictionary. A few years ago I saw a post on read about the origin of the word mullet. I- Photoshop a nineteen ninety-two magazine I had laying around to make it look like it referred to the term mullet before it was first used in print a change the cover to make it more difficult to trace as an issue in the archives and add more credence to my edits. I also edited the publication Copyright Dates Nineteen Ninety one. So it may have appeared as a special early edition. It says, why would I do this? I was a founding member of an online community called annoy. Club, which looks for arguments on the Internet and then creates sake. Cruyff's as evidence that the person who is correct in the thread is actually wrong. We pick arguments that we have no personal stake in and involve no people we know, and for point create images, photos website in interviews with false information supporting the incorrect. Why am I admitted to this? I recently came across an entry in the eighties own blog, and there was a lot of work by eighty staff behind the scenes trying to hunt down the special issue of the magazine Photoshop also dragged into street machine magazine staff and tap can multiple libraries in Australia I. Think they should know I'm sorry for what I have done I respect the a D and I should not have published the that I did. Well. I have very mixed emotions. To, hearing this. I mean. First of all, there's like. Validation that this always felt sort of Hinky and the likelihood of it being real seemed vanishingly small and I have to respect the game here because those things that he mentioned like changing the copyright to hard like those were exactly the right things to do. To keep that tiny shred of possibility alive that this was real and. It worked. But then also it's kind of sad mystery M.'s. Catherine also pointed out another thing that the whole thing is pretty dark. There's an additional paragraph and the apology in which tops meet says he's become disillusioned with Annoy Club because it's quote full of people whose only purpose in life is trolling vaccinations, supporters and US political discussions. He goes on to say he almost died in the eighties from an infection for which there is now a vaccine and he thinks that the political work is just empowering those who would prefer a confused populace I want no part of the community anymore. Between, two thousand, fifteen, when he posted the photo shopped image and two, thousand eighteen when he apologized tops mate like so many people seems to have been confronted with what it means to live a post-truth world when he was actively contributing to only to find out, he didn't like it that much. Still he only saw fit to apologize a hard to find image gallery. The people he was apologizing to might never have found is it really an apology if you don't deliver it Still Catherine's happy to have the whole thing resolved. So we put this appeal. We wondered about this question does the word mullet go back as far as our brains think it does or only as far as the documented evidence shows and I guess. From our perspective that that still not answered but we're always open for new for need this one I'm just like you are open new data, but like I feel like you guys got it. We we never say never in business they're always they're always new things that come up but yes, I don't think this active anymore. I WANNA gently suggests that there was something going on to keep it active. So long something besides lexa graphical plausibility, call it a bit of mullet confirmation bias because it feels so much like the term to have existed before nine, hundred, ninety, four, the only OECD put out this appeal and then when evidence of it existing before Nineteen ninety-four popped up, it was taken seriously. Seriously and then ultimately, perhaps more seriously than it deserved like multiple librarians more seriously than it deserved and so many people in this tale behave this way. Read it readers. Librarian Street machine editors and readers. Definitely me. We all kept digging because we couldn't quite believe what we thought. We knew was true wasn't true. One thing I noticed that many of the people most devoted to the idea that the term mullet existed in the nineteen eighties Catherine Oscar read. It commenters me again weren't even fully sentient in the nineteen eighties. It wasn't personal experience or individual memory that was driving our certainty. It was just a cliche sense of the era which was all we had to go on in this regard. The mullet is a fun low stakes iteration of something that is often not fun or low stakes at all people's warped but strongly held perceptions of the imagined past and the length they will go to hold onto them. So. We've almost fully excavated the mullet. There's a little more to this mystery if term mullet wasn't coined in. Australian. Car Culture who actually coined it the Beastie Boys Pluck it out of thin air or did they get it from somewhere else? Honestly. Seems like they plucked it it was definitely coined by Mike D of The beastie boys Warren Fahey, the writer who contributed to the Grand Royal mullet package. Again, who had noticed that this hairstyle was was impinging on civilization To a a monster degree at that point in time. And he came up with the word mullet. And said, this is what we're going to do. We're going to devote an issue to making that word stick. So it was all quite intentional and completely planned. By a Super Genius Mike D. now, obviously, I would like to ask about this still would it anyone has an please consider this public appeal, but he declined to speak with US but Warren is adamant Mike d coined the term and the piece itself suggests everyone working on it at the time.

There's nothing as bad as bad haircut, and perhaps the worst haircut of all is cut, we call the mullet. It goes on to include a series of mini essays about the haircuts, origins and cultural significance focusing largely on the cheesy White Guy Mollet though it has one section called the political correctness of the mullet, which notes its popularity among blacks, Hispanics indigenous people, and women. There's also a Q. and A. With head a defense of the mullet and synonyms for the hairstyle including soccer rocker, bi-level, neck, warmer ape drape mud, flap, hack job the Missouri compromise, and the Kentucky waterfall only some of which were jokes. Warren Beatty is a novelist but in the ninety s, he was freelance writing and running a movie database in San Diego, he'd gone to high school with grand royals editor who got in touch about the project or as Warren. Tells it about the mission everyone from Porn Stars to Superman were sporting it suddenly. And masterstroke was to tag it with a word that would. Forever. Hopefully abolish it from the human race. The editor asked warrant right in ancient history of the mullet. A kind of anthropological satire Warren agreed even though no one knew what a mullet was at the time. It was utterly completely new nobody had heard of it. Everybody thought was nuts to do it is what are you naming a hairstyle after fish what? For the peace he went up to Los Angeles, to get a leather bound thome that he says had been permanently borrowed from the. La. County Library. System.

If it had been rebellious, it was increasingly conformist if it'd one's been away to signal, you're an outsider. Now it was just a way to pose as one. Yes it was still common, but it wasn't cool. Ten I think this may help explain one of the otter coincidences of all this, which is that in a period of two years, there were as many songs about this one hairstyle. Please recall that Swedish hockey hair saw from one, thousand, nine, hundred. In nineteen, ninety, three and nineteen ninety-four hockey hair was in a deeply transitional moment where it was popular and yet also played out making it curious. Of Note, in a way, it hadn't been for years and these songs they noticed. Anyway getting back on track. The BC's didn't originate the disdain for the mullet they mainstreamed it and it's new insulting name. But that doesn't mean they came up with this name as Catherine Connor Martin said, it's totally plausible that the term mullet came from somewhere else likely in the slang of some subculture somewhere on the English speaking globe. So now I want to turn back to the only subculture that had showed any promise. However, piddling I want to turn back that lead.

So from here on out, we're going to dig into the lexical. But I promise the payoff is worth it. So the English dictionary had asked the public for help in finding any reference to the mullet as a hairstyle from four, nineteen, ninety-four, an Oscar set out to find one you know once or twice in the past I've been able to find something earlier than the Oxford English dictionary says it was printed or something start doing done. That's just putting in mullet and Google books saying, okay between one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine by Newell Use just the word and you know. The fish, right it's all fish fish fish the mullet a family of fish is eaten all over the world and it was like I did it for like hour it's trying to find. You know once in a while, you can find reference to the insult like Martin Paul Newman called hadn't. He doesn't have a mullet like these called been called an idiot. A tip from cheers SAM. Diane Mullin. Just ended that sentence with two prepositions. Don't you have customers to deal with that ended with the preposition to don't you have customers to deal with mullet head. That's it. Right. You can actually find it at that point it became like Oh. This is the fun factor used parties less efficient use and Sweden though it's not that efficient in Sweden, because in Sweden as many of the countries where it was a phenomenon, this hairstyle is not called mullet, which is hokey feel which means hockey hockey fellow was is a whole thing in Sweden. There's even a well-known nineteen ninety-three Swedish. Rock song about it. There was a very big hit from the Swedish group illegally accomplish on our. Translate as happy friends like it was huge. They was something that everyone knew because it's like a real earworm. Funny and it has like the chorus is just a guy singing called who hook if ho Ho Ho Ho cookies dealer. Anyway even though it wasn't always a smash with other Swedes, Oscar often share this mullet factoid and then in two thousand fifteen for no particular reason, he decided to share it on read it. Oscar posted to the information about mullet to the today I learned sub read it a kind of gathering place for fun tidbits. So I've never had anything on ready to blow up but that thing blew up like it was on the front ready for like almost an entire day like it was the most fun twenty, four hours. I've ever had on the Internet's because like everyone like whoa and then trying to solve a problem with you like a exactly yes. That was my favorite part right because the comments most many comments were like this is told worship like I I wasn't there. All the time, this is exactly what some of the comments on his post sound like bullshit I grew up in Queens New York City, and use the term mullet since way before nine, hundred, ninety, four, one reads another goes I call bullshit when Achey breaky heart came out in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two I, and everyone I knew in North Dakota was referring to his haircut as a mullet there was lots of those but anyway, a lot of people started like. Doing the research and it was so much fun even with all these people digging around though no one turn up an earlier reference. But then Oscar's post got cross posted to an Australian read it where was framed is like get a load of this nonsense and one of the people reading that post he found something. A user named tops made. Like posted a comment. Yeah. That today I learned is so full of Shit and the perfect example group thing took me under an hour of browsing through my street machine collection defined this reference to a mullet as a hairstyle from nineteen ninety one. And Yeah. Any Image of magazine that if I'm in his garage, the image that tops meet hosted is of two pages an Australian hot rod magazine called Street machine there from a piece about a teenager named Craig Parker who built his own muscle car the story includes a picture of him sitting on the ground his back against the grill of a red sports car in which he has an unmistakable mollet. And then there's an Arrow added by tops mate pointing to this picture and another Arrow pointing to a line in the text of the piece that reads three years ago Craig Parker was a mullet haired teenager who wanted to build a car that could rival the best. It seemed to be a piece calling a mullet a mullet in Nineteen ninety-one I remember reading that and like my short. Like. That was the coolest thing I've ever seen Oscar immediately replied to tops Smith, comment and said, this is amazing. You should submit this to. This is great work part of me was dismissed that my cool today I learned had been disproven by Australia but like. The. Bigger part. So happy that I could like make like I had had a small part in making a contribution to the history of this term. Now, if you're saying to yourself nine, hundred, ninety one that's still so late, that's not even the one thousand nine, hundred eighty s is really that big a contribution to the history of the term please keep this in mind about slang often it's used in spoken language years before ends up in the documentary record. So in Nineteen ninety-one usage maybe that does mean the mullet goes back to the late nineteen, Eighty S, and also this was such a big deal to Oscar because he was just way down the rabbit hole totally internalize this fact. Like I on the research and I had like lived with this for two years and I had like just spent hours defending his thesis in the comments. And then this guy comes no. Yeah. I just went out to my garage and found the holy game when. I think of as any pre nineteen ninety-four references to mullets Oscar it wasn't the only one who feel this way about the street machine article the Oxford English dictionary was about to jump back into the picture. Now that we've all got a bit of free time on our hands. You can catch up on the podcast you've always wanted to listen to, and so many of them are on.

I WANNA start at the beginning not of the mullet but of my interest in the mullet which was sparked by an email from a listener with the subject line the mystery of the mullet my name is Oscar Robertson. I'm a software developer and I live in Stockholm Oscar is really interested in language and linguistics. So I subscribed all these like weird linguistics and exit call griffey blogs and things like that. One of the dogs I was. I am subscribed to is the Oxford English dictionary is public appeals blog. Where the Oxford English dictionary like put out appeals to the public for like Oh, we researching this word hit the wall and and so in two thousand thirteen that could out this log post about door mullets in this public appeal, the Oxford English dictionary the E. said, they couldn't find documented reference to the mullet as a hairstyle prior to nine hundred and ninety four, which I was very surprised to read because nine, hundred, ninety, four like that's. So late like mullets eight, like the most eight, these thing you can imagine there's nothing more emblematic of ages mullet. Like but nobody uses that word in the entire decade like nobody. Can't be like so weird and it is so weird in the popular imagination. Mullah's are as eighty s shoulder pads, dynasty, Ronald, Reagan junk bonds, and break dancing. The two are totally intertwined and to explain why have to go back to the other beginning the beginning of the mullet itself. Despite its connection to the nineteen eighties, the modern mullet was not actually birthed in that decade was first popularized in the early nineteen seventies by David Bowie. Ziggy played guitar. Jamming. Avin. In her memoir backpage passes Angie Bowie, but he's wife at the time recalls that David was working on his album, the rise and fall Z. Stardust and the spiders from Mars, which we didn't have it the character of ziggy stardust and Amna Sexual Glam space alien he woke up one morning wanting a new haircut. It was Christmas Week and the hairstylist who regularly did always mom's hair paid a house call this stylist Suzy Ronson Nayef Fussy told the story of what happened next as a storyteller at the moth David Angie was sitting by large Bu Window and they were discussing the of cutting his hair short. He had this long blonde wavy hair at the time. They asked me my opinion. I said, well, you know what else got short? You know nobody you look really different. But we showed Susie a magazine photo by can cite Yamamoto. Model cans I am a motive was a Japanese designer. One of the first to show his work in London who'd in the next few years begin a long creative collaboration with Bowie do that. Well, as I'm saying, yes, something could to myself. It's a woman style. Am I can actually do that. The answer was some scissors, Schwartzkopf red red hot hair dye, and guard an anti dandruff treatment that made boase hair stand up in the front when suzy was done. But we had the famous ziggy haircut bright red long and flipped out at the back and short and bristling in the front. It was the perfect haircut for the extraterrestrials ziggy who is not exactly male or female because the mullet was genderless to it's easy to lose sight of this now with a mullet has become so associated with a performance of aggressive machismo, but it's a haircut that's long and short male and female both and neither at the same time. The fact that it's not entirely straight also in the sense of not being square is what makes it cool. But as the mullet became more and more popular, it's essential androgen seated into the background, and that's because the people carrying water for the in the seventies and early eighties weren't mullet having performers like Joan Jett Paul McCartney Bano and prints they were hockey players. Illustrate how the mullet crossed over from rockstars to athletes and regular people getting bigger all the while I want to highlight two figures in particular. The first is the hockey player Ron. Dia. Rondo awarded a federally shot and Harry. Do gave a handsome Canadian who married to a model played in the NHL in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, and is widely credited with having one of the earliest mullets in the league.

What nature of mullet it's pretty short and tight on the sides and I've got some solid lengthen the back. So it's kind of getting blowy. I think it's more the mullet that makes people uncomfortable. See now it's less feminine. It's definitely curly and luscious and. I'm pretty proud of it. Lauren I encountered mullets when she was a kid back in the nineties. So I grew up in Texas and I remember I think the first all I ever saw in person was an elementary school, my pe teacher. Who was a woman? She was the head coach. She had this like long epic curly mullet. And she had a really thick country accent. And choose always chewing gum gold hoops just like. Strong. Gay Woman which I didn't really know at the time.

These we're the waning glory days of the mullet hairstyle that was once the do not only of Country Stars and Lesbians but of Rock Stars Hockey players, soccer players, TV characters, school age boys across the country and people all over the world from such heights. The mullet could only fall and it felt far by the end of the nineteen nineties it'd become dramatically on cool lows even considered to be uniquely unattractive, trashy and low class. You can see this in the two thousand, one comedy Joe Dirt. which David spade plays a sweet beleaguered loser whose most distinctive quality is his incredible mullet. He's constantly teased about it as by this radio shock Jock played by Dennis Miller. Got To see the sad almighty man from inbred Heaven Hey freak boy nineteen, seventy, six called who wants its hairstyle back.

The Interior World
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe. McCormick, and today we're going to be taking a look at interior space. Get Era Two thousand twenty brings to mind the old curse. May You live in interesting times and one of the factors here has, of course, been the corona virus cove in nineteen pandemic and in an effort to fight the spread of the illness, save lives and prevent overwhelming are hospitals. We've made a lot of changes to our lives and these range from the simple such as just wearing a mask when you're out in public and you can't so full. Distance from people to the harder choices about employment, and in life choices, we've all been social distancing and stay at home orders teleworking in quarantine have meant that we've all been spending a lot more time at home. Now depending on your home, this could mean a lot of things, but we want to explore what this means from a biological standpoint for the most part here. Now, make no mistake spending more time at home has absolutely been the right move. But just as it's forced you to focus more on, say that weird stain on your ceiling we wanted to focus on the other often unseen aspects of life in home right much the same way that being say on a Spanish galleon out in the middle of the ocean might have made you pay much more attention to the biology and behavior of of ship rats than you ever would have otherwise I. Think being at home more and more is forcing all of us to Turner is and maybe our microscopes and magnifying glasses to the corners and the cornices and the showerheads and the drain traps and all of the wonderful places in our house where life dwells. we're going to really get into the difference really between the natural world outside of our homes in the unnatural world inside and getting into some ideas about how how we could perhaps enable our interior world to be a little more on the natural side of things. But. Before we get into all that, I wanted to take a moment here to discuss the history of houses in general, you know just to get into the concept of what a house is. Our first and most important interior artificial environment. So you can certainly look at a home as an artificial cave to a certain extent indeed, we have lots of early evidence that early hominids sought out shelter in caves in the same way that many other animals do these can shelter one against the elements and against predators and as recently as one hundred, thirty thousand years ago cave-dwellers were already augmenting these natural interior environments with things like rough stone walls using timbers so So you know, even one, hundred, thirty, thousand years ago we were taking naturally occurring interior spaces and. A little less natural. And of course, on top of just the shelter caves can provide. It also seems that caves had a strong sacred meaning too many of these prehistoric peoples those might be important, but ultimately, proximity to water is far more important thus as Kate Spin Brian fagin point out in. In the section of the seventy grade inventions of the ancient world about homes, most early hominids lived out in the open near streams and lakes built temporary structures, and most of this has been lost a time. But some of the earliest evidence of potential structures for homes goes back a one point seven, two point seven, million years ago with Homo Erectus sites in southern Africa, and these were potentially contemporary with the domestication of fire. The have been temporary tents, but they still would have been artificial interior environments. Now, more secure evidence comes from the Ukraine roughly forty four thousand years ago the the mammoth bone structures from mullet ova with recently see us on the show actually yeah we did talknet these that would have been structures in one of the northernmost habitable regions of the earth the time because this was during a time of glacial. Advance where the polar ice caps from the north were coming deep down into Europe and Asia, and and so this would have been far far north way up among the ice and for some reason, humans were building these structures out of the bones of mammoth and we don't know that there are still things. We don't know about those structures like how how consistently they were inhabited and for how long and so forth. Right? Now beyond this, the history of human homes is is largely dictated by local resources and local climate. Long process of trial and error ends up leading to the development of regional and cultural building forums construction methods. Before nine thousand B C e we see evidence of clay houses and Palestine what is today Palestine and before seven thousand BC we see rectangular dwellings in Anatolia. But but a home is far more than just a shelter. As the authors here point out houses became key to social structure as well.

"Social distance medical Jason Mouse. Good to see my friend. Good to see you. We've got footwear news. We've got a lot of automotive news and we're going to start there with hurts because just like we saw JC penney in retail. What had been rumored for a while is now official hurts. Global has filed for Chapter Eleven Bankruptcy Protection The New York Stock Exchange. She's going to delist the stock and this is I. Don't want to set this up as wow. This was unbelievably stable company from financial standpoint to begin with but just when you look at the speed with which this stock went from the low twenty s to its current price of two dollars and change this. This is swift and for global. Yeah I mean it is. I would say that. This was kind of just the icing on the cake. Really I mean this was a very challenge business before the cove in nineteen pandemic hit and that certainly accelerated its demise. I mean I it's it's obviously accelerated a the demise of many businesses. But I mean hurts was in was in a challenging. It was in a challenge position before this I mean sales essentially flat. They were taking losses left and right and they've also been plagued by management upheaval. They've named they named its fourth. Ceo and six years just this year and so you know the one thing I always think about when you see the sort of when you see a revolving door like that with with leadership if you don't have a leader in place that's been there for a while. You don't really have the opportunity to try to see around corners and perhaps take the business in a new or direction. I mean that really is one of the great virtues of of tenure leadership there is they have a good grasp of the business but also the market that they're pursuing in how the company can respond to competitive threats. I mean like I said I mean before the Pandemic Kid Hertzel business in trouble I mean. Did this just hastened really. I think what was inevitable as we've seen this you know. The whole travel industry Change with with companies like Uber. And lifton in this. This need for rental cars. Maybe not the same that it was before So I mean it's a shame I mean certainly never root for this kind of stuff. It's a brand. I think we all grew up with and you remember those commercials of Oj Simpson running through the airport leaps and bounds. I mean I can still remember that just as as if it were yesterday but but in clearly this is a business that was not able to think about the challenges that were that were Approaching and they were not able to figure out a way to pivot or or evolve in ultimately you know this bankruptcy was just inevitable. Shares OF AVIS BUDGET. Up fifteen percent on this news. I was a little surprised at that. I realize that book if one of your competitors no matter how challenged they are hurts was a competitor if they go under yeah. That's good for your business. I was still a little surprised to see that pop in Avis budgets stock. Because I thought look that's the. This is not a great environment for any of your businesses. It's not an enemy in this. This isn't really a great business. Even in even in the best of times I mean the cost of doing business for companies like these are. It's expensive I mean you're talking about gross margins in the fifteen percent range even in good times so that gross margin we're talking about earnings which trickles all the way down to the bottom line. It's always GonNa be a tough margin business. I mean the cost of doing business really is. There's no real loyalty. I like these car. Rental companies to airlines. There's no real loyalty people just want something cheap that works and they kind of kind of takes me back now. This is a family friendly. Show Chris I'm not going to completely go off. Go off the deep end here but you remember back in the day that planes trains and automobiles the movie with Steve Martin John Candy I mean you remember what transpired when Steve. Martin was trying to get that rental car right you can give me a datsun. A Toyota Mustang. Just four blanking wheels and a seat right. That's kind of what we're seeing. I think with these car rental companies. There's not really any Derek. I I'd like them to airlines in that regard in even before I moved up here to start working at the full ten years ago I was. I was working with travelers insurance and and I was in the auto claims department there for a year later. I was astounded by number one. The amount of car accidents that happen on a daily basis but the number to the business that these insurance companies get these rental companies is just amazing. I mean if your car gets hit you need another way to get around. I mean it was kind of automatic businesses from that point so it kind of showed you the opportunities there at least with these car rental companies to take advantage of partnering up with big insurers like that But but all in all that's just one avenue of revenue and it's not really growth right. I mean you're not rooting for an environment where we have more automobile accidents. It probably could be argued that in time as technology gets better we should be able to bring that number down but I mean you know. This is a business where the thing that really stood out to me. On their income statement it was not revenue growth. It was not how how well they manage their earnings. It was the net interest. Expense in expenses are bad. We're talking about you know from six and a half percent in two thousand fifteen to eight percent of total revenue today in. That's a lot and they were. They were free cash flow positive the last time they were free cash flow positive. Two Thousand Sixteen. It's not even close after that. They've got a debt to equity close to fourteen. So I mean when you when you combine all of this together I mean. It's just really really difficult business to run. I would certainly not make the leap that because it hurts is going through this. That Avis is going to be some massive beneficiary because remember to this is chapter. Eleven hurts is still going to be able to try to figure out a way to do business going forward granted. It may not be one that you want to invest in but it's still gonNA be a force out there in that market Which which you know I think continues to make this just a difficult space for investors. It's great you know if you need a rental car but but as an investor I just say they're there they're better places to look in my opinion last thing before we move on hurts owns more than half a million vehicles. Is it reasonable to assume that part of this process is going to be selling? Some of those off reducing their fleet. Just a little bit and and where I'm going with this is. I filled up my car fifteen days ago and I took a very short drive yesterday and I looked and I've got three quarters of a tank left so that keeps up one tank of gas is GonNa get me through two months and this will lead into our next topic in a second here but I just I don't know it really seems like for consumers who are either looking for a new car looking for a lightly used car. I mean I think the the last car I purchased the one that I just filled up. I'm pretty sure it was a rental vehicle beforehand and it was and it was in good shape. I Dunno it just seems like if you're looking to get a used vehicle you're going to have even more options. As a result of this I would imagine so I I would certainly think to right size there. Capital structure. I mean that they're gonNA be releasing some of those leases and some of those vehicles and certainly does flood the market with more used vehicles as we always say economics at the end of the day rule and and so when you flood the market with supply like that You know oftentimes you're GONNA see a lot of competition just on the pricing side and that's great for folks looking for for lightly. Used cars denies thing. It usually leads with rental companies. They do maintain those fleets pretty well. Just because those cars have to always work. That's you're renting on the premise that my car is going to work so they typically take care of the vehicles in service them well. It's really interesting to think about going forward. How how we use our cars. Because I'm with you I mean we my wife and I both have our own cars in. I mean I I had not been taking my kids to school over the past few months. I've obviously not been driving to the headquarters for the last few months. I mean I'm taking two weeks to go through a tank of gasoline. I don't think it will always stay that way. But but I think we're seeing a lot of signs certainly at West where we're seeing more companies embracing the work from home or work from other places so I mean it's reasonable to assume that maybe people will be driving less and if that's the case then that probably means that people aren't out there demanding to buy cars as much in that will have profound impacts on this market the ripple effects are plain to see. Let's move on to autozone. Because third quarter profit and revenue came in higher than expected for autozone their same store sales weren't positive and they were still solidly better than wall. Street was expecting to be essential business. Chris and I mean this. This is an essential business. I mean they didn't have to close up shop for one day really into remember here. I mean just just as a reminder of the quarter that ended may ninth so I mean make no mistake I mean this is a quarter that really did report In the midst of this pain I mean these numbers do come from a lot of a lot of the the toughest times here with sales were relatively flat. Same store the same sales. As is you mentioned down. Only only a smidge. I mean that's got to feel like a major win for this company. Particularly when you look at the carnage writ large in in our in our national economy. I mean I I always have looked autozone and O'Reilly is. They're the two big players in the space autozone and o'reilly an advanced kind of brings up the rear there. But it does feel like you could call autozone the lows too over. Riley's Home Depot. Except maybe the disparity between Riley and autozone as a little bit closer Did their two very similar businesses. They performed very similarly on the margin side In they you know they do provide ultimately in essential services. I mean that. That's you know people you car has to work. And they have the consumer in the commercial side of the business. I mean the Omni Channel Side of the business where there's ordering online or or online pick up at stores still represents a very small percentage of their business. It's less than five percent. So they do count on people coming into those stores and they didn't really have to close many stores for any extended period of time they didn't have to whittle down their hours terribly substantially They did note the chronology as the quarter went along. The first four weeks things were going. Well they they were up mid single digits. Same store sales the next four weeks. That was the greatest Or the first impact. At least I'd probably the greatest and they said that's when they're seeing store sales really took a hit but they did note over the last four weeks of the quarter they saw these stimulus checks actually had an impact on their market. I mean consumers are willing to get back out and shop the safe Socially safe distance in again. I mean they're providing providing things that ultimately.

"All right chuck. So let's get down to the MULLET AKA hockey hair. That's another term for it. Yeah Some credit the Beastie boys with popularizing the term mullet a better song ill communication in Nineteen Ninety. Four called mullet head Where Ad Rock says you want to know? What's a mullet while I got a little story to tell about a hairstyle? It's a way of life. Have you ever seen a mullet? Wife doesn't make that much sense but it does seem to be like the first real reference to this hairstyle using the word mullet from what anybody can tell. Yeah and the term mullet head. His long been around just as a general derogatory term for a dummy yeah Which had nothing to do with a haircut and they think that may have come over from the British derogatory term. A mall head still. Yeah that's what they said but it still doesn't explain and maybe they just aren't related. How the haircut got this name after this weird looking fish right so I guess Mike d wrote a little article about what they were talking about in that song mullet head and he said that the mullet fish the mullet fish is basically dislike one long. It's like oblong. It's like a a drawing of a whale. Basically doesn't have any kind of anything that would suggest its head is separate from its body. And apparently when it rots it rots from the neck down which kind of gives it the appearance a bit of a mullet or people. Who HAVE THE MULLET HAIRSTYLE? Look a little bit like a rotting mullet fish. I guess as far as my dear ad rock thought and that that's how he explained where that term came from. But that the the use of the word mullet head to mean kind of a dummy. makes Mark Twain frequently cited as the Guy who turned coined the term mullet which is way off because he was using it. In that sense that you were saying which is kind of thick headed or her dumb or something like that. Yeah I think the fun thing about this article which we got from. How stuff works was Kind of tracing back the actual hairstyle through history. And if you go back and look there's a great article on history dot a woman named Linda Lucina Writes about the ancient Greek poet homer in the Iliad writes Writes about this group of Spearman called the Avantis and they had their four locks cropped in hair grown long. The backs that the moment. That's a full mullet. Yeah and homer wrote the Iliad in the eighth century BC E so almost three thousand years ago at at at the latest people were were already wearing mullets. And there's this other article from day J- Dazed digital by Oliver Lund. That talks about and I've seen pictures of prehistoric peoples that look like they kind of have a mullet and practically that kind of makes sense because you you know if you're hunting and gathering you need that hair out of your eyes so you might cut it off with a stone tool right upfront. And then you want a little further in the back to protect from Sun or rain or to help keep you warm. The son's a big one. I suspect that's why Andre Agassi had one because he had to go play tennis in the Sun all the time. It was very sensitive about his neck getting sunburned. Yeah Agassi e think of multi think of Agassi. You think of Billy Ray Cyrus and There was a basketball player for the University of Florida named Dwayne chances that I think he played pro for a little while but he was a big tall center in. He had a fantastic boxy mullet. Did He really okay? I always think of Sean Thomas. Scott Sean William Scott Kristin Scott Thomas one of those He was in dude. Where's My car? The Nano Future Guy that was Kristin Scott Thomas Right. Yeah he his. He had a really fantastic mullet and old school. You remember that. Oh Yeah that was a good movie it was. I mean it was funny. It was very funny. But he's the guy who shows up with. I can't remember what kind of animal to the birthday party. The Kids Party as a journal as gun. That Will Ferrell accidentally shoots himself with. Is this stiffler yes stiffler. That's right. Yeah he's funny. You know another movie. He was in that was underrated and under seen is Not Step brothers big brothers. Oh yes is that the name of it where he involved models role models. That's it that is a good movie you know. Paul Rudd wrote that himself. Oh he did. That was David Wain directed movies. Yeah it all makes sense. It was good all around everybody in. That was great. Yeah he was very funny very underrated movie. I think should we talk about a couple of cool examples of mullets in in rock history? You're about to step into some controversy but I'll watch you do it well. There's two that I can really think of The one this article mentions is David Bowie. That's the controversial one. Yeah I mean if you look at Ziggy Stardust era. He definitely has what you would consider a mullet but it's also dyed red and he's wearing the ziggy stardust outfit. So it's hard to call that a mullet even though it kind of is well from what I saw? The people who say is not a mullet just basically say David Bowie was literally too cool to have what you would call a mullet. Even when he was wearing a mullet. That's their argument. Basically which I mean. That's pretty pretty impressive. As far as the cool factor goes that people will defend you like that. Yeah the other example is there was a time in the seventies where both Paul and Linda McCartney had matching mullets and it was really puffy in spiky on both of them and Very long in the back so You know it. It was a look. It was a look for a couple of for sure. What about Jane Fonda include that? That wasn't a mullet really. My mom had the haircut for a little while in the seventies that sort of I mean. It's a female it anything going that. Turn no now. The Lady mullet was always called. The fee mullet haircut. You're talking about. It was sort of like a haystack. With a little bit in the back I guess a good way to put it. Florence Henderson had one for a little while kind of on the Brady Bunch too. I think of I think of Jane Fonda a straight up mullet but maybe maybe it is just a female clute with such a good movie. I never saw it. I'm not even sure what it's about how man you should check it out. It's awesome okay. I will I wanted to. It's a mystery Okay don't spoil it for me. Hey speaking of mysteries of movies get this. I went back and watched the original Seven days Sidney Lumet version of murder on the Orient Express was good. It is oh yeah. Delightful Albert Finney Plays Hercule. Poro and I couldn't even recognize him for the first thirty minutes. He does such a good job. It's a it's a really great it's it's it's on the Internet you can find it. one final mullet where we should mention is none other than president. James K polk. If you go look him up. He's he has a mullet yet. And what was the name of? I WANNA say Mog y but it wasn't the the bad guy he wasn't a Mohawk can't remember what he was but in last of the MOHICANS.

That's a great idea. Maybe we will the mullet of five casting edit out this part where we figure it out as we're doing it to you all right. Maybe we should take a break man. That's an ultra short mullet right there. All right so we're talking about the mullet Business in the Front Party in the back always thought was very funny of this hairstyle. Where your hair is short in the front and top long in the back. The one that really got me that I've never heard before I know. I know the Missouri compromise your belly or to give one Kentucky waterfall. I hadn't heard that one before either. I hadn't either that one got me but for some reason Missouri. Compromise really gets me like the hairs working it out. You know right or the. They'd Teenage Judas Priest fans working in our his mom so let's go ahead and level here and talk about our own history with a mullet. Have you had a mullet? Ever know have unit? I have what I did man. There was a time. Believe it or not in the eighty s where the mullet was sort of a skater haircut. It was kind of short and spiky and then a little longer in the back. And this was pre Billy Ray. Cyrus and pre sort of anyone calling it a mullet but looking back it was definitely what you consider a mullet but it was kind of like a cool skater. Kid Haircut. Yeah Tony Hawk. Had One did he. Yeah one of the differentiator to was like it wasn't just short bangs on top like it would come over the one? I from the side but yeah it would be spiky on top and then long in the back totally was never put two and two together like that but no I still never had one but there a a very Embarrassing Picture from like the tenth grade from Church Whatever album annual yearbook? What are they called when their churches? I have no idea well. Churches used to put these out every few years. Yes a Bible and we're all in it but I had a mullet. This is the only picture of me with a mullet in existence and I was wearing a mullet and Paisley Maroon suspenders and a tie. Wow and my brother still threatens to that sort of his big thing holds over my head attention. Scott speaking directly to you now. We demand to see that photo. I will say that. I got wise pretty quick in by the tenth grade. It short-lived haircut and I had sort of the other skater. Look which was just like long bangs. Right yeah so so you just lopped off the back of that. Tony Hawk cut. Yeah and there was still a little hair back there but I mean actually. The most embarrassing haircut I had in highschool is the that mushroom when you had shave around your ears in the in the bottom of the back end just have sort of a big poof on top indicative. My my high school haircut was a Caesar. You remember those. Oh sure I had one of those for years and years and years didn't make it on anybody especially not that guy on the original. Csi series. Remember him did you ever watch that now. I never saw it. There was a guy who's who's older guy like well into Middle Age. Who had a Caesar and it wasn't like accidental like he had a Caesar Haircut and it was just an odd hairstyle choice. I think for him all right. Maybe we should take a break and we'll actually talk about the mullet when we come back. Does it sound good? Sounds great.

there was a check that for him that gets her arm bitten by a tiger and Joe exotic he used his real name Jos Bravo goal or something like that went on CNN and spoke with Chris Cuomo about the incident well the concern is obviously about whether or not the zoo is safe you've come under fire before do you have a problem there in terms of safety with people working with the animals this is something that that we have stringent protocols for and we do as as extensive training it is possible and I would like to say that if it wasn't for our our professional protocols the emergency medical staff probably all right are the reason why we're dealing with just an injury instead of a death here hi it's no different than than training somebody to get a driver's license on all the driver's license plates can do is train them and if you choose to not only because of the tally accident it's not the driver's license places fall he's comparing a woman getting her arm ripped off by a tiger to getting your driver's license that is correct Sir and I'd like to point out that he's talking about the medical staff that was trained if you watch the show the medical staff with him all he did was take off one jacket put on his medical jacket and made a tourniquet out of this chick's arm so how does Joe exotic work and all this is he implicated in the murder for hire of this woman's husband I

Her Dark Plans: Stacey Castor
"Talk about Stacey Castor. Who was born? Stacey Daniels and she was born in we'd sport which is a little town just twenty miles from Syracuse. Her Dad was a car salesman. Stacy had assistant brother named Darcy and Jamie off. Three of these kids went to school in the weeds. Port Public School System. His sister became a nurse. Her and her brother worked for large toy company. Now Stacy had plans to become a lawyer or maybe a paralegal but in his senior year in high school. She met and fell in love with twenty four year old guy and that kind of derailed all of her plans. It did so this guy. Is Mike Wallace? This was a good looking guy. Here's the life of every party. And he was the first guy who wasn't turned off by Stacy's height of six feet. Well in her mind yeah in her own. Mind our own mind. She felt like that was really not liked by the guys that she was that tall in. Uh this was a little bit of a strange situation anyway and not just because of the six seven eight year age difference. Mike had been married before he'd been married to Stacy's third cousin. Nancy I had to look up. What a third cousin meant and that is people who are related at the level of their great great grandparents. That's barely related. But anyway that's distant but she did know her. Yeah well I mean if you live in. The same area sure should be acquainted with absolutely now. That can time a little bit Nancy. Who was mixed first wife? She become pregnant with another guy's child in nineteen. Seventy nine is back when she and microbes seventeen so make an answer got married and they raised two children together. When was his stepdaughter renee? And they had a biological son James that Nancy and Mike's Marriage was just disaster. You know you could have kind of predicted that the coach you while they fought a lot and Mike was in and out of jail for his partying ways he had. Dui is and even had domestic violence charges so even though Mike had been abusive to her. Nancy always defended him and she would claim that he had a big heart but he was just raised in a family with some generational domestic violence so basically saying he was a product of his environment. well a lot of times. That's the case not always right right. Hopefully people can break away from that but I think it usually does take some self awareness and some therapy and it seems to me to be kind of an easy way out of things. Yeah you can say well. I'll blame it on my parents or my upbringing. Well it can be a cop out. Yeah for sure so after six years together. Nancy and Mike did get divorced. No big surprise there but it was just in time for Mike to fall in love with another high school senior and that was stacey he barks. O School. Seniors doesn't he. Yeah and it didn't matter if he was a high school senior anymore. He still liked them. Route so stacey and Mike Got Together he was working as a setup operator at mcquaid international. Pretty good job. This company manufactured Heating Cooling and building management equipment right in nearby Auburn so within minutes of meeting Mike. Stacey was already planning a life with him she wanted a wedding honeymoon and then a family with him and she thought they would spend the rest of their lives together but then stacy found out that she was pregnant just months after first. Having sex with Mike and Mike decided he wasn't interested in having another child so he broke up with stacy now of course that didn't stop her from having his child but she lived at home with their parents and she gave birth to her daughter. Ashley. According to friends and family stacy was a good mom in the beginning at least. She was madly in love with her baby. She was inseparable with Ashley and gave her all of her attention. And his Ashley grows up. We're going to see that Ashley. Her mother were really best friends to me. That's not the way to raise a child. Yeah but anyway well. Is there a way to be friends and still be the the parent line through definitely is yeah but if you stop being the parent and your only friend that's bad? I agree or if you're the best friend true true it's really not healthy for the Child. The child needs to go out and make their own friends with their pierce right. Got It but anyway. Stacy found out as many women do that. The bad boy party personality that had attracted her to her baby's father was really a negative when it came to settling down and raising a family together because Mike like to drink and go out with his friends but she was really into him and she didn't give up. She kept seeing Mike showering him with love and attention. And Eventually Mike Did Propose and gave Stacey and engagement ring and she was so happy here. If you look at the photos from Stacey Mike's Wedding Mike Looks Pretty happy pretty carefree. He had that thick dirty blond hair. Kinda longish big huge substantial mullet. Yeah that was one of those straight hair. Mullets that hangs down to like the shoulder. Blades serious mullet. Those were good And Stacey was thrilled about how the wedding when how everyone looked then. The wedding took place in her family home and there are lots of friends there to see her in her. A beautiful wedding dress. Yes so looks like everything's happily ever after to stacy at this point at this point and even with his ex wife. Nancy they gotta lock. Yeah they did. They even invited Nancy and her two kids over for Christmas. One year and Nancy was welcomed to drop off her kids with stacy and Mike for visits in their home. Mike had been in charge and quite abusive in his relationship with the Ansi but she noticed that he was very different with stacy. Stacy was the one in charge in her house. You know wearing the pants as they say and Mike really toed the line. Stacey was sharp young woman really pretty smart and she knew what she wanted to get done and she did it. Still Mike like to go out drinking and he even did some drugs but it seemed like he was really good to stacey when he was home. Andy worked so he provided okay. I don't know yeah. I think there's still some difficulties if he really likes to go out and drink do drugs matter how he is does wife. When he's home right. Sure Yeah but there's no doubt anyone's mind back. Then that stacy was really in love with Mike. Oh absolutely mean to her. He was like a teen idol and she had a crush on him even after they'd been married for years also. Everyone agreed that Mike adored stacey so even though things weren't perfect it seemed to be working for a while but then now three years after Ashley was born. They had a second daughter named her. Bree now Mike Call Bree his little princess and it was obvious that he preferred gre- over Ashley now. This is kind of strange because he fathered apparently fathered both children right betsy. Some people started to question. If you know maybe might doesn't think he's Ashley's father because we know that one of the two children that he had with Nancy when it had been conceived with another man so maybe he remembered that and showed some coldness towards Ashley. Yeah maybe it was even not even a conscious thing right but later on. Stacey would say that Mike's Preference for bree was very hurtful to Ashley that there was an obvious lack of emotion between Mike and his oldest daughter so obvious that she even pointed it out and family photos. Stacey said that she tried to compensate for the lack of fatherly. Love by spending as much time with Ashley as possible so their relationship really went beyond that of a mother and a daughter and they were more like best friends. But you know Ashley didn't remember it that way. She didn't remember feeling rejected by her. Dad are seeing him prefer her sister. She had happy memories of her dad from when she embry were little girls. So when we think about this when we go into talking about her crimes we might realize that. Stacy was kind of playing this up for her own reasons. If share so when stacy and my gut married she worked as an ambulance. Dispatcher and Mike was a mechanic they managed but they didn't have an excessive amount of money didn't do vacation sir other big indulgences. They lived in a two story house near the junior high and high schools in a nice working class neighborhood Mike Stepdaughter. Renee moved in with them now. Rene was pretty rebellious at this point. She was getting into trouble. Nancy Thought Mike might be able to straighten her out. But that didn't happen. Rene continue to have problems and it became apparent that this living situation wasn't gonNA work out. Stacey insisted that rene go back to her mother's house in her mind she was a bed influence on the other kids Ashley and Bree. Yes as she was definitely giving preference to her own biological daughters. Yeah definitely but rene really remembered her time with the Wallace family quite fondly. She had been growing up in trailers with her mom and the Wallace House. Even though wasn't great was okay. After Stacy sent her away she felt hurt and rejected and there was no further contact in fact she never saw Mike again. And she didn't see Stacy Ashley. And Bree until Mike's funeral by the time Ashley a preteen. The marriage is on the rocks. Both Mike and Stacey had been unfaithful to each other. They fought
Reparations In New Zealand
"We start recording okay. Still it Mavis. Mullins started her career in in sheep bond in New Zealand. Her job was degrade the quality of wool. I loved it and war was such a beautiful natural fiber. It's actually a protein. Mavis is now one of New Zealand's most powerful will magnates. Her company handles a million sheep a year. Yeah Mavis is involved with all kinds of boards and trusts and a big part of her life. Is Hotel Rooms. Taxi CABS FREQUENT FLYER LOUNGES. Although initially she was a bit shy about that. Frequent Flyer status. I don't want to expose myself. Actually you saw. Of course there's nothing hidden. I am an elite gold club member and proud of it and I just want to point out that you can hear and Mavis this fundamental paradox of being New Zealander like myself. It's basically into us that we never spice to Brag but we're also meant to always tell it like it is and I find that really hard myself may mullins on the other. Hand is unusually deft. This she has this disarming honesty that let's just cut to the chase about anything and you you will like her even more. It has made her a great negotiator. Her friends know this about her her business associates and apparently her cousin because one day Mavis was on a trip to New Zealand's capital city. Which you just happened to run into this cousin. Eliza in Wellington we passed in the street and he said to me stop. Anita have coffee with your cousin wasn't just grabs you and pulls you into a coffee shop. Yeah that's how it started. Mavis knew it was about to come and to some degree had been actively avoiding very conversation. May this is Maree an indigenous New Zealander and she knew that her tribe was scheduled to sit down with the government for one of the most important negotiations in. Its history and negotiation for reparations. The more accurate word for tribe in New Zealand is e we May Miss E. We have been working towards this reparations movement for decades and at this surprise coffee meeting may cousin essentially was saying we need you Mavis. We need you to drop some of that jet set business life and come help the tribe come help. The every politics isn't always very pleasant. I'd rather be in business with the lines are pretty well drawn. So it's it's just a whole different ballgame. Did you say I'll think about it? I said I'll talk to you later. Wise Move Below. Welcome to planet money. I'm Kenny Malone and I'm Daria Moods the story of Zealand is unfortunately familiar. The country had an indigenous population was colonized by Europeans. And by the Nineteen Seventies Baldy had lost ownership of ninety seven percent of their land often through deception and sometimes violence but over the last thirty five years the New Zealand. Government has spent billions of dollars to build a system to address those unthinkable. Wrong and to try and actually pay for them today on the show we head to New Zealand to see how it works and to hear what it's like to put a price on history. We ask Mavis mullets.

And if you kind of zoom in on the bottom part of the North Island you'll land here on a small mountain that Mavis mullins knows as Puka almost like an inland island dedicated to the boot song. The name polka comes from a model where that means flock of hawks all Windy Mountain. This is where Mavis is travis from her e we we see People Mountain People. We were people of the forest. That was a food basket. Prediction Castle Moat Play. Grand was Kim was there chemists. She says it was their pharmacists. Mauri the indigenous people of New Zealand were way ahead of Walgreens. They were using leaves and seeds that now show up and Commercial Pharmaceuticals. Mavis remembers being sick as a little kid. Her Grandma was able to just collect ingredients from the forest poultices and potions things like that where you like now. I don't want to drink that. Grandma was it would you? You didn't really have too much of a choice. You sit down and have this this'll help your tummy for Mavis. Ancestors way back. The forest was everything but then the European settlers came F. I just a handful of settlers who wanted to tear down some of the forest to farm. Sheep Mavis Z. We figured great. We can charge these settlers rent. They'll tear down some trees in some small plots but the we can preserve the rest of the forest but then the New Zealand government got involved after a series of bad deals unfulfilled promises outright deception by the colonial government almost all of the ease land ended up in the hands of white settlers and within just one generation. Mavis his ancestors went from being landlords. Four the white settlers to being there laborers their farm workers and sheep shares because of their own government. Wow just happened so quick. Without regard you would not good partners. We're not sincere. You're not true Be Nice to have you say sorry. Damage Mavis ancestors had gotten everything from this vast swath of forest and almost all of that forest was chopped down when the land was sold to white settlers. In fact there's really only one big chunk remaining now. Who is all? That's really lift of the forest. This is the last real remnant. That's an one pace. Fukuhara is the last real place where Mavis can go to see and feel and hear what our ancestors would have experienced but infuriatingly it was no longer controlled by Mavis E. We Pukhov fell into government ownership and to add insult to injury for all of us as life New Zealand. Maps did not use the name Puka. Mount Price was mount.

Your Influence is Catalyzed By What is Influencing You
"I want you to think about what is influencing you today a quick Google search will show you that the way that you choose. Your friends is incredibly important and this isn't just common. Wisdom passed along by motivational speakers. There are studies that show that strong willed friends can increase your self control. Close friends could help you. Increase your longevity and perhaps the most obvious of these studies shows that friends at greatly influence your choices. Of course there's a ton of research on the subject of Peer Influence in. It's important that we think about it but very often we think about the world in terms of what we are inflicting on it not necessarily a bad kind of inflicting but how we are affecting the world around us so what happens when we think about the other direction. The truth is that much of your influence. What you believe you are kind of autonomously choosing to do in the world. Miss Heavily reliant on things that are influencing you your experiences that you've had up until this point in your life the things that you expect to happen in the future all of this is intertwined the things that influence you are the things that teach you what you think about this reality minute things that influence you are the things that teach you. It's an incredibly simple concept and when you think about it for more than ten seconds it becomes obvious that this is true but often we choose our influences without thinking about them as our teachers if you hang around people who are constantly negative constantly thinking about their lives through a negative perspective. The lesson that you might learn is that it's normal to react negatively from a social perspective. It's the appropriate and expected response to react negatively as a developer in your career. If you spend time with people and with companies that highly value software quality then you are learning lesson of valuing software quality. And if you're leaning a team it's even more critical that you're aware of this reality that your team is teaching each other lessons. What can end up happening is that a team starts to adopt the same habits of each other and mullet. I this kind of feels like your culture is gelling together.

How Building Community Can Supercharge Your Business
"Well communities can be very powerful force in helping to grow your company but how do you harness them here to show us how Jono Bacon again. Who's the leading community? Imagine Strategic Consoling Speaker and author of a book called people powered how communities can supercharge your business brands and teams his previously wrote the best selling book the art of Community Jones the founder of the primary annual conference for community leaders and managers call the Community Leadership Summit Jona welcome to the show. Thank you great to be here. So let's first define our terms when you're talking about community do you mean in real real life ones or virtual ones are both I think it's both The way I look at it in this essentially three models but communities a-this that we can think of the first is what I refer to consumer to be the people who get together because they shared interests such as Star Trek fans. Who took him by the show live along with the And then the second type is what I call champion. Which is why people go the extra mile? They wanted to write articles produced videos. They want what to do advocacy setup events But then the third type is what I call collaborative which is why people come together to build something and that could be either collaborating Britain around South West which is where the open source revolution. That's happened or it could be for example building applications that sit and in stores such as so i. It seems that people or more physically Iceland ever are these kinds of communities actually helping to bring people together. Absolutely I mean I think what's really interesting is that historically people have been forming into communities for a number of years. I mean people get together and trolls and have book clubs and things like that but each each session each meeting that they would have nothing would happen in between and you know you just show up each week and what's happening. What's happened in the in the last five? To ten years with advent you know in the course if technology is that now we're able to fuse together. Physical and online worlds much more effectively than APP so for example you can have physical meeting. Take get together and they they do talk and they network and they have mixes but then you can keep people connected through online forums and incentives and social media pieces like that so so. I'm finding that what's happening is. We're seeing this especially in business. The value of having an interactive relationship with your audience is more important uncalled than ever. I mean just today as we record this. Google is fish Two billion dollars and I think one of the main reasons for that is that it is not just a manufacturer factual watches of exercise equipment. They built a huge community of people get together and exercise each each other. Make sure the backup so I think it's lowering the various people spend more time with each other another example as Peleton right. People are getting together at home but they're getting together together with their community to exercise. This is so when you talk about these. Three communities interest or become a champion around software is any one type of community stronger than the other. I don't think one's necessarily stronger but I think we've seen More examples and and the road is being traveled. mullets some of these teams for example with collaborative is what people get together to build. Something I mean one of the best examples that is open source. I mean we've seen is one such example Cuba nephews which is formed that runs. The cloud has brought together over two thousand software developers from over fifty competing companies to build a platform that's completely open-source completely. Three towers how you know the way the world works in terms of the cloud. So that said there's a lot a lot of there's a lot of expertise that we also see on on the on the On the kind of the the consumer side we've seen so many people have been getting together into into the groups into events forums where they have a common interest where it's a little less proven is this fusion of Of of the insieme Marcus View from simple people being used products and how they blend together the coast and and the collaborative elements it'd be an online at the same time and and and this is where telethon she were a really good example. They've built an enormous community of writers Online he will get together arriving together. The doing you know power trading and things like that but now they're swimming more and more into in person events as well and that is where I think we're seeing the evolution of community really starting to to grow is that you're saying is that people actually start as a community virtually and then they get to know each other than they wanna meet in person in many cases that's the case that the thing with virtual little courses that there's a very low bar entry you know all you really need is your cell phone and you can get connected whereas if you want to go and meet somebody in person then you gotta take time off my after go babysit. Say you've got trouble somewhere. So everybody liked with anything window shelters I and it's the same thing with communities you Kinda poke had through the door and you see what's going on and it becomes more and more compelling what happens is you didn't you didn't stop to To want to invest more time and effort into typically when people the events and then when people understand especially all the small business owners listening that creating a community attach. Your Business is so important because as I said time and time time again people no longer want to buy your stuff that Wanna just buy your product shove your services they really want to have an experience and if they have a community to support that experience Jono it really can get them to talk about Your Business and can really propel it where you never thought possible. Absolutely I mean the thing is I think it's easy easy to forget when we you know when you take away the screen the computers the podcast everything. We are fundamentally animals and automobiles one of the key. The things that we hunt for and we searched for is a sense of belonging is when you feel pop something. When you feel valued by a social grouping and it's one of the reasons why people are you know Family oriented example. What happens when you build a community wrapped around your business? You have a relationship with your customers to write a product to them and you know. Hopefully you'll get a referral out of them and maybe some good reviews what happens. Is they feel author relationship with your organization and they and you get this amplifier effect. Where they need other customers by the consumers and it builds a sense of belonging and it's one of the reasons why salesforce Oracle sap built communities over a million uses and harley-davidson has got seven hundred rights local chapters all over the world because people are upset and it builds customer attention for years? So it's a very. It's a very powerful tool so joan. Of course the sixty four million dollar question we always want these vibrant active communities associated with business. How do you get started building a successful community so This is one of the reasons why I wrote my new book. People Pal it is is sadly I believe. There is no silver bullet for this. But what I've learned over the cost of my twenty one year career is that there are a set of consistent pieces that you should put in place so in a nutshell. The first thing we have to do. Is You have to decide which of those three and the committee models most aligned to those and sometimes it will be a combination of a couple of and the first thing we should do identify the value value. Like what is the value went to bring to the community mentor. You have to stop that and the value of your business will slow wants to identify and then what we do is we we build out and said the personas. So what are the types of community activity WANNA say. They want people to write software. You won't be able to organize it. Do you want people to write documentation or obstacles we we we carve out this own as much as a sense of what are the things incentivize those people and how do we find them. So for example the wing incentive device software engineer is very different to the way in which you would incentivize Design it for example to participate in your community. What what does it gives us? kind of a blueprint reprint of the end game. And then we break that down into into a set of annual objectives were willing to stop focusing on how we accomplish those different paces and the the ingredients that sit in those objectives. We'll be a multitude of different things. For example content is a great way bringing people in social media the right way of bringing people in the one of the things we need to figure out is how people communicate with each other communities apple have like a clubhouse it could come and communication platform the key thing here is stop small and it's right there are many clients that I've worked with over the years. Where they you know they bring me in? Because they kicked off this huge community initiative and they haven't got the traction Russian they wanted and in many cases. It's because it was overcomplicate. You need to do is the key trick is is stop small focus the right kind of persona. They're so because in the right kind of value and then tracked the right kind of metrics. It's right over and over again because when you are able to read the data and how it impacts impacts your committee strategy you can then choose it very specific to what your business once and. That's kind of what I walked in and people powered so Jonah what are the pitfalls pitfalls though a bringing actually people into your work right so your clients. People are watching everything you're doing and they're able to comment on it. Yeah Yeah I mean You know everything is a is a is a bunch of roses I think one of the pitfalls is it can open up some of the vulnerabilities of your business. You know if you think about how most businesses operate you have a hierarchy and instead of decision making and you'll customers and you'll uses they're they're placed in a very specific way in your world. You meant for example you you reach out to them. Through newsletters new provide product to them the way they contact. Talk to you through your customer support lines for example when you have a community for it to really succeed. What you need to do is to build an interactive relationship with them and what that means is you need to train your team members in how to engage with them and how to solicit feedback from them and it requires is giving a little bit not so much control but records giving some oxygen to your customers and they didn't have before and that can be suffering for a lot of businesses and it requires? It's very castle amount of training because you can probably imagine. Communities request functional. It requires marketing team product. Team your engineering team to be involved to deliver the different pieces of the puzzle And
