"You share with us. A little bit about you know your your impetus for creating coining the idea and And then let's chat a little bit about it and got some announcements to make around. It is okay all right great so the first thing i would just like to say about bitcoin is. I don't think it is like me. Creating more of a we created it because there are a lot of people that were behind this and i wouldn't have done it if it was just voiced bought alone. That was working on this. So that was that was one thing. But if i step back really the whole idea started with this this this other trend. We've seen among people in the industry. The ones that you and i interact with most frequently. And that's the community voice Developers owners the preneurs the business Business folks that the big companies even and what i notice happening starting about two years ago as the startup fragmentation and that accelerated last year. And so you know. I think about like three years ago we all got together in newark right and so we will together and last year. We weren't able to do that so that wasn't able to bind us together. And there were some other types of activities that we're all binding us together whether it's all building skills or doing something else and that just that just evaporated over the last. I would say two years but it was really cute last year. And so i was thinking that. That's one of the things that we do and that's really the core of your business is community but we are sort of a central gathering place at voice spot for lots of things. So i think i think we do something around community known sort of a side project that i'll do just to provide value. Everybody and that. It looked actually for a fleeting moment like clubhouse was helping with that. 'cause everyone was getting together not everybody. But at least ios people and then later the android people We're we're getting talking but that's not really a community platform so that wasn't going to quite do it And so basically.

We were not welcome night. it was off. It was all.

"It and keep it close. John lau believes earthworks. Were used for all kinds of important events naming ceremonies funerals they may have been schools places of teaching storytelling and learning but they were also places of pilgrimage. You can imagine through the six gates different clans coming together in the middle hundreds or thousands of people coming to join whatever ceremonies and rituals that they had planned around four hundred. Ad the whole era came to a pretty abrupt end. Archaeologists aren't sure what happened but they do know a new civilization took over. For centuries indigenous people continued to live in and around the earthworks but they didn't use them in the same ways. People had during the hopewell then in the seventeen.

Full regard for the shape. The original shape of the earthworks. After this wave of looters came the army's pushed the native americans out and the settlers who flattened the earthworks build their homes in newark. They built a glass factory. A mall houses roads and industrial parks actually a miracle that any of the works survived. Try this is chief glenna cedric cincinnati. Okay a couple of years ago.

"It's three hundred. Ad the mounds have already been here for. At least one hundred years there are no settlers here all of north america is home to native tribes. Ohio is forested landscape. That is really just primarily wild cedric. Rose is a writer based in ohio. Definitely massive swaths unbroken woodland. You hear these anecdotes scroll being able to travel from one side of ohio to the other without touching the ground but in some spots were the ohio river valley cuts through the trees. There are pockets of prairie. Natural clearings are like windows for humans to look up into the sky and back then there would have been no city lights. The night sky would've been the infinite made visible the milky way and just like limitless depth own. It would have been. I think just an exciting place john. Lau is an associate professor at ohio state university. And a citizen of the po- kagan band of pot awada me indians. His ancestors lived on this land under this night sky. I've often heard from elders. When i was growing up in my community that those stars all represented other tribal nations. We knew that there were other people's up above us. You know that you look at the milky way. And that is the path of souls. Those are all of our ancestors traveling to the next world. And so you know it always felt very interconnected to me. Thousands of years ago members of native american tribes came here from all over the continent. What we know about these people we've learned from the artifacts. They left behind cooper from the upper peninsula of michigan shells from both gulf coast and the atlantic ocean obsidian from yellowstone. Turkey all adjusts. This suggests they weren't all part of just one tribe but they communicated with each other. They traded and had some of the same values and traditions. Archaeologists call the period of history. They lived in the hopewell era. It started around one hundred bc and lasted for around five hundred years by comparison. United states of america is only about two hundred fifty years old. So that should give you some idea of just how much staying power the whole culture had. These were egalitarian societies. That created these earthworks. There was nobody ordering other people to build this stuff. It was all a community effort. They dug up huge mounds of dirt and moved it one basket time to create two gigantic shapes a perfect circle and knocked on two parallel lines connected them like an aisle. The whole thing covered about seventy acres of land and they were part of a larger complex earthworks in newark that covered four square miles and the point of this wasn't just to make something big or beautiful is very easy to track the sun because it moves in twenty four hour cycle but the moon moves in eighteen point six year cycle and they wanted to figure that out. There's one big mound at the bottom of the circle. You can stand facing east and look straight down the aisle you would be looking down the length of the entire earthworks off to what we suspect. There's some trees in the way right now. But what we suspect was the optimum place to view the lunar alignments. And that's why it's called observatory mound. The people who built the earthworks could have used stone if they wanted to or would but they chose dirt. Who's sort of a western predisposition of. Come on it's dirt. Know and what do we do when we come home. We wiped the dirt off our shoes right. Wash your hands through dirty but indians we have a familial relationship with the earth. It was a family member. It was an ancestor. These hopewell era builders. They wanted to hug the world you know they wanted to embrace.

So i was a newspaper reporter before i was a teacher. I was a reporter for the star ledger. Newspaper in newark new jersey It was a beat reporter. And i did a fair amount of reporting out of iran as well for an everyday life series but then i am feeling that i was unable to kind of make change. I felt like. I was just reporting what i what i was seeing as a witness and less of a change maker and so i did new york city teaching fellows and a moved into teaching that way i taught at a brooklyn school in the middle grades i was at a. Tc school so I had some great stuff development before moving to illinois where it was also classroom teacher literacy coach then. I became a literacy coach in lot of different schools. So now. I'm all over the city in catholic schools in chicago public schools in the south side and also in the affluent suburbs.

I thank i couldn't believe at the time that i was being paid to just tell people's stories and to just ask them questions and to just report kind of link there truths and i feel that that is what teaching is feel the social the social emotional piece of it more than i feel that education sometimes because I just really firmly believe that the kids are our curriculum.
Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 04
"Is thereby do like the fact that kyle amaury stole from the ball but now we are going to hop into a guy that went fifteen picks earlier in nfl draft. A guy that. I absolutely love allied larger more. He felt a second pick of the second round. And i am adjust fan. So i hope i'm not too biased here by do absolutely love elijah more because you look at the offense there. The new york has in place and the did geico davis and they do have them. Zal dumbbell mims there too and jamison crowder and you may think while there's a lot of receivers here but fact of the matter is the jets spent high draft capital. Two goping get larger more. If they're picking him with the thirty fourth pick of the nfl draft when they have all these other holes on the roster. We're talking edge quarterback you can make the case that they probably should have picked a player that was an edge or cornerback but they went ahead and they pick the larger more probably because they had a first round great on him and viewed him as one of the top receivers in this class. And if they didn't think that he could he could become a number one number two receiver. The offense and zack wilson. They probably wouldn't have bothered. They're in picking eligible more. So i think that you have all these. Ribisi were twos vibrancy. Threes in newark. Don't have a true alpha by receiver one in york and you saw gems on men's last year yes. He had injuries throughout the season. So we didn't really see enough from him but clearly the jets haven't don't believe him enough to be born receiver because they drafted elijah more. And when you're looking at college football last season devante. Smith had a great season but a lot of people are not talking about elijah more enough and i believe elijah moore had the second most receiving yards in college football last season in a shortened season. So this is a guy you can make the case for is a very very good receiver and it was. It was definitely disappointing for him. To see 'em fall out of the first round. But i absolutely love this landing spot with zach wilson in leiden. More both being rookies. I think the chemistry is going to develop an plus alleged. moore's blazing fast receiver. He can like a four three forty and this is the guy. That's an impressive rat runner to me to really has a little bit of it all. He may not be the biggest receiver the biggest taller receiver. But i think that he s potential to be a slot receiver a coup number for the jets in years to come so i am all about allied more this year and going forward i think there may even be better than rashad. Bateman and may be the third or fourth fest receiver in this class. Well i just wanna stay for the viewers. You know anybody. That's been listening to us. Knows that you're not just being a homer on him because you were higher than just about everybody in. The industry like the entire draft process before the draft. So i know it's not just because he landed at the jets because i would call you crazy. It was just for that reason. But you know i think you make interesting cases you know it you also knowing you. You're not a very high. You weren't high on the corey davis signing. I don't think that you're surely how on mims of abbas really really Into mems last year Going the draft process. I did not end up with him on any teams because his a draft dot com just started skyrocketing and he the point where i was taking pittman over them. Still then you. I wasn't getting him. On the turnaround you know because i also claypool and gibson ranked ahead of them but Like mims and i thought he was actually a really really interesting prospect. So at night we're willing to give on him after He's got that alphabet. I'm not willing to give up on him after a year. That a complete dumpster fire in new york last year. You know they have a completely new offense. I corey davis kinda showed that he could be the number one wide receiver. Antonio brown was hurt. Leisure you know most of those. Those guys actually kind of started splitting targets down the stretch about pretty pretty evenly. So i do. Think that Corey davis they paid him. I think they're going to at least attempt to get him. The number one spot and i do think mims profiles really well and the outside as well Us why they went out and got him with that pick. What corey davis and mims strengths are like down the field jump ball situations whereas i think Allies more profiles more is like underneath guy that can can really thrive if he gets volume. I just wonder how much volume is going to be there. If they're not running a dominant amount of sets of three watersheds. Because i do think that the other two receivers with their bodies and big catch races will Out snap him on the outside while it's interesting that you're high on Corey davis. And i know i've said before the not hot high in corey davis so i think that's another reason as to why i'm higher on a lighter more. I'm just not buying the fact. That corey davis succeeds in new york. Two years ago not last year but if we look back two years ago and a lot of people probably have wiped out from their mind. But i have not wiped that season from my mind because i was big. Encore dave's heading attest season and he completely let me down lake completely. Let me down. I'm not even sure. I'm thinking was probably healthy the entire season and i'm not even sure if he finished as top fifty receiver in the league and so fast forward a year and had a very successful year with the titans. I'm not knocking him. But here's a guy who was picked with the seventh or east kick in his draft and he was supposed to be the number one receiver for titans and we never really saw that work out for the titans. And i think they declined his fifth year option. So there's a reason why the titans aren't holding onto corey davis and i think unfortunately core gape is a receiver who can be great here and there like a devante parker. But he's not consistent enough. He's not a true number one receiver. You gotta in a way force in targets from the be successful. And i think the jets are just gonna realize the gecko that our number one receivers probably larger more in a number two receivers probably summons so. I'm not scared about corey. Davis getting targets. People were saying the same thing last season about shod paramount and how he was going to have a huge role in that new york offense and what happened in bre shot parent. Who by the way. I was extremely on extremely law. Shot payment last year. What happened to be shot. He did nothing for that offense. So i think just because the jets went after core gave us that doesn't mean that he's going to automatically demand targets. It's zach. wilson's offense now. I think zack. Wilson is going to gravitate Skies like elijah. More over corey davis and a jamison crowder dems. I think the alleged moore will end up being his normal receiver. And i think that the ceiling for more is very high to it. Might it might not happen with a larger more by think by the end of the season we're going to really realize how good of a player that allies are more is. Yeah so

A Coworking Community of First Believers
"Get started. I'll ask you an about launch pad. You and chris co founders of launchpad. What is that exactly so launch pad is a network co working spaces really focused on smaller communities what we call them into markets throughout the united states. And we're located in nashville newark. New jersey stockton california new orleans. And we're coming to many other cities like mesa arizona and louisville kentucky. So we've really focused on becoming part of the entrepreneurial community and acting as a home base for entrepreneurs of all kinds. So i'm going to ask you about your locations in a bit but i wanted to ask you about your unique value proposition. I mean you're playing in a growing space. What defines launch pad among all other players in the space i think the biggest factor is an alignment with the success of our members. We really focus on people who are working on cnn. Really is the way that we define our marketing so that's much more expansive than just people starting a startup right. There's a lot of people who are working entrepreneurial league whether you are starting to start up a small business freelancer even working remotely. The nature of work is changing so much and we really focus on helping her members be successful in whatever their goals and aspirations are a lot of people are new to this and we believe that diversity of member shall ross. The types of businesses in diversity on level is so important so the lot of factors that set launch pad art and. I'm sure we'll we'll talk a little bit about sort of the ups and downs of the co working world today in the in the on gas. But we've been around for ten years and have really focused on the growing success of ecosystems that we play a part in that starts with helping the members that work at launch pad really achieved their roles. So when when i was doing my research a term popped out of the text and that was first believers. What does that mean. And why is it so important at launch pad. They mainly sat down and belts sort of the core values with business and or operating communities that we serve. I believe i one that always talks up and crystals. Everyone's firstly a ride often on journey. You hear the words know whether that from an investor whether it's from your mother whether it's from your little that little guilty had You're telling you that it's not gonna work and what you really need levers and so me think of that as sing the level within lunchtime and oftentimes those folks were working in the community. They are each other's levers members to show every day. They're the ones you hear the saab sorting things go wrong. Who celebrate the for sale. Who ring the bell with you. And you create this environment where we're all sort of on this entrepreneurial jury ourselves and help each other and we consciously about it every day about being people's first lemurs and we do that in righty one. It's the cities that we choose so we often go to places that maybe be overlooked by big providers or big big Operators in our space and we take bets on the city's because we really believe in supporting them supporting their entrepreneurs and we also believe that being i believe her is not just about writing a check. It's also being someone's purse customer so we try actively to support our businesses within launchpad by not only being their mentor their friends but to be their customer many years ago before i even started executive recruiting. I tried my hand at starting a new suspect on intellectual property. I spent a lot of money. I wrote a patent got a patent issue and then i tried becoming operational as a startup and was so soul-crushing and yes i got told no every day i never heard yes and i was like how can i put up with this so i can see the value in doing that. You know it's so true. I it's the journey of any entrepreneurial venture hearing no all day long in whatever role you are and it's also the internal journey right. I think the first believers concept is really the antidote to imposter syndrome. rain holds us back is am. I truly the ceo of this company. Am i truly hanging my big corporate job in stepping out to follow my passion project and so by being a community of first believers has not just us founders that that believe in our members radium culture where people believe in each other and push each other and support each other along that journey wondering if you could give me a sense of how that gets flushed out. So i'm a startup entrepreneur. I set up shop at launch. What can i experience at launch pad. That's going to help me flush out my business model in my path to success. Oftentimes the process starts before you become a member and typically what we see a lot of the journeys especially for startup founders. Is they'll connect with one of us or another member of our community around something as simple as pitch practice or a mentor session. Or hey i'm looking to raise money. Can i tap into your network to connect with others and get some funding. You know they always say if you ask for money you'll get good advice and we have that conversation with us. Start to be able to demonstrate the power of the network the power of the platform and power those connections and oftentimes some of the way we recruit startups into launchpad is through those very first early conversations. Once they join the community we have an on boarding process for folks where we connect people. It's starting out. A co working. Space is a little bit starting your first day at school or your first day at your job and we approach that very similarly by creating programs and connection points doing a little member matchmaking. So that folks who have like minded challenges or personalities or different types of businesses. We can connect them. And so we're really sort of smooth the path of on boarding in the community and then we have a variety of different programming and curriculum and supportive activities that happen throughout the year to be able to support entrepreneurs obviously dumb one some group sessions but we really sort of enable the platform to basically support it. And what we end up seeing these collisions of connection moments where people come together and they find their technical co founder amongst our member base or they find their first customer if they're hanging their shingle to be a consultant. Every time we do surveys of our member base about the benefits of being at launchpad we consistently hear that it helps them do more business. It helps them be more professional helps them achieve more their goals. That's fabulous so you take a lot of the sting out of being a startup entrepreneur with dimension. We also are sort of on converts so we understand deeply the challenges that we all face. And i mean i think especially in a year like we've had with the pandemic with twenty twenty struggled ourselves as as many businesses and i think it's been really valuable for us to be able to share those struggles in to go through that together with our members. We wake up every day. Thinking about launch pad are members. Were not a big corporation. We don't wanna be. And i think that really comes through in terms of the connection points that we can make with entrepreneurs are our
The Nazi Hunter: Eli Rosenbaum on Tracking Down the World's Most Wanted Criminals
"Newly appointed attorney. General merrick garland has said he will renew the justice. Department's focus on the threat of white supremacists. Eli rosenbaum knows a thing or two about ideology for forty years. He has helped the department track down and hold former nazis accountable for their world war. Two crimes a law enforcement role that has earned him. The moniker of nazi hunter. Mr rosenbaum with us now. To talk about that moniker. And that mission mr rosenbaum. Welcome to people love the pod. Thank you great to be waiting. So yes you have been called the nazi hunter. I've seen the show on amazon prime. But what does that term mean in real life. Well it's not an expression. I'm particularly fond of because it suggests that this mission is something other than what it is which is professional law enforcement. We are not engaged in on or anything sort but we have been for four decades now simply investigating and taking legal action against participants in nazi crimes against humanity. Your father escaped nazi germany in nineteen thirty eight. I believe. can you share a little bit. About how your family history inspired this work. Y'all my dad. Got out of germany lived in dresden. His brother and his parents and they managed to get visas to this great country and were able to escape in nineteen thirty eight and the attorney. General merrick garland said in his recent testimony. I think all the time about how the united states saved my family my father graduated high school in newark new jersey and then started paying back the united states by going into the united states army and he was sent to north africa and to europe and served in the third infantry division and then when they realized that they actually needed german speakers they transferred to a psychological warfare branch unit in the us. Army the incident that changed my father's life and had a big impact on the shooter was when he was sent to a concentration camp by his commanding officer to go there in a jeep with two other men to see what the army had found the previous day when they liberated dot com word spread quickly in the region that something terrible was there and my dad's co wanted. Know what it was so my father went when i was fourteen years old and we were driving on the new york state through a blizzard heading north and there was nothing left to listen to the radio. We were talking. And i love hearing. My dad's were stories especially the funny ones. Anybody who serves the military s funny stories about food or whatever and then suddenly you said you know. I was sent dot com the day after its liberation and i though fourteen was a time when there wasn't much said really about the holocaust i knew what it was and i said what did you see and i'm like my father staring out the front window because it's pretty treacherous driving and i don't hear anything from my father and i look over to the driver seat and there i see dad with his eyes glistening their welled with tears in his mouth is open and he's trying to tell me and he couldn't speak and it was the first time i ever saw my cry men of that generation didn't want anyone to see them cry usually and we never did speak about it so my beloved father lived you know into this new century and so many many decades and we did speak about work with frequency when i was home but we never returned to the subject of you say you talked about your work with your father. How did that conversation or the job evolve over. The course of forty years work has changed quite a bit. When i started actually as a summer intern back in nineteen seventy nine. Never imagining that. This would become my life's work. We were overwhelmed with investigations. We had inherited the responsibility from the former immigration and naturalization service after the attorney general took it away from them because they had not succeeded and he's had up this new office the office of special investigations in the justice department criminal division and we had more work than could really keep up with and it turned out in the first few years that the we had inherited that actually had the most merit were ones that were based on tips received directly or indirectly from foreign governments. Which at that time was to say. Mostly the soviet union occasionally another government but generally the the soviet union which had mixed motives in these cases. We started being very proactive within a few years and by the five year point and they're after nearly all of the cases that we could develop to the point of prosecution. We're wants dan. We had initiated on our own and the methodology for that was to task our staff historians. We were the only law enforcement entity in the entire hemisphere that had its own complement of historians. They were the people who could dig for the needles and haystacks and we tasks them with responsibility for keeping an eye open for the surviving remnant of personnel records and other documents that identified perpetrators or perpetrators this. They did with great success. And ultimately we assembled more than seventy thousand names of suspects mostly european also some japanese and we ran each of those names one by one against us immigration records and sometimes other records in an effort to see if we could determine whether any of those people came here assuming they hadn't changed their names

Times Square, NYC Then And Now
"If you haven't been. I will make sure that you feel like you have. I hope that you enjoy this episode. You know new york city is fantastic. And i love it a matter of fact i have been there many times and i used to live there as i will tell you in this episode but i also want to tell you that it was in the late seventies and eighties entered the nineties. That new york city star to lose its attraction. It started to lose the people that came to visit and it star to be a real dumpster. People didn't want to visit new york anymore and so it was the governor's the mayor's and police commissioners started to take back new york city rebuild new york city one step at a time starting with times square in nineteen eighty eight is to murray hill in new york city. I lived in a three story. Walk up but first and second avenue on thirty first street not exactly prime real estate but safe enough. It was near the united nations and right above the entrance to the queens midtown tunnel Now you know if you are a new yorker or visited new york you know exactly where i lived then a couple of years later i found myself living in the salvation army apartment building for women. It was ideal. It served two meals a day and it was right across the street from the much coveted. Grammercy park the oh so glamorous and it was a close walk to eighteenth street between fifth and sixth avenues where i worked. I thought it was a dream. Come true and it was. I never really ventured to the west side past sixth avenue or anywhere near times square. Well that's what we're talking about. Today is times square and new york city. Everything i needed was right around where i lived but times square was unmistakably a major part of the city no doubt a black guy on the city a disappointment to the twelve hours of manhattan and somewhere that was to be avoided if wanted to dodge trouble darkness dealings and drugs. If you have seen the two thousand and nineteen movie joker with walking phoenix. Ps and by the way. I suggest that you might have an idea of the area and new york city. That was the cd and trashy times square. The closest thing. I can compare it to is a scenes in the movie joker to find a seedier place was difficult when they were filming. The movie and times square didn't look like does today so in the two thousand nineteen movie joker with no cd place to replicate times square. Really the producers of the movie had to go to newark new jersey a real old fashioned pit hole. If ever there was one to newark that was of the same timeframe as the movie never fixed up and never given a real chance to survive and today's society. It's a real shame but it depicts it perfectly times square where beauty came to die. No kidding in nineteen eighty six. When i was there there were multiple pornographic theaters and times square. The motion picture association of america introduced its rating system that included an x rating dip became associated with pornography. And so all the movies that were in times square were x. rated or the dreaded triple x. and everything was pornography back then pornography and. I should say drugs. The times square as a porn capital error was part of new york city's in the seventies and eighties amid its fiscal crisis. And later the crack cocaine epidemic which was rampant and it wasn't until the mid nineteen eighties that there was a push to clean up times square and new york city
New York Gov. Cuomo Lashes Out at Critics As Outcry Over Nursing Homes Grows
"It's criticism of new york state coronavirus response. That's irritated governor cuomo to the point of lashing out specifically criticism of how the governor's office has been counting the deaths of cove patients in nursing homes. So i asked jimmy veal kind to take me back in. Explain how this data error could lead the governor to reveal a less savory side of his personality a side of himself. he's managed to keep under wraps at least for the last few months it turns out this data error. It's tangled up in some policy decisions. The cuomo administration made about nursing homes way back at the beginning of the pandemic. You have to start in the first week of march where there were lots of unknowns. Far more was was not known them was known and governor cuomo had had just sort of his did over a slow glide shutdown of the state finally came to pass on on march twenty. It took him a while to make the decision. There is a week of sort of incremental closures. Different people debated whether or not he should have acted faster. But that's sort of was was decision point number one decision point number two was concerned about hospital capacity in certain that the fires it already spread pretty widely. More people are getting affected in governor. Cuomo talks time and time again about images that he saw from italy where hospitals were overrun where patients were outside on gurneys or stuffed into hallways and people were essentially being turned away and he said so often that that was his biggest fear so in that environment hospital. Executive talked to the governor's team in said we've traveled. We have patients who no longer need to be. Hospital is but they're sitting in our beds because we have no place the discharge them the normally would get discharged homes either. I kind of probably or for a long-term residents but the nursing homes were saying we're really scared. We don't want these covy positive patients and so you have this tension between nursing homes and hospitals and what new york state did was it. It basically listened to the concerns of hospitals so march twenty fifth the state health department issued a directive which said that a nursing home could not refuse to admit a patient which it would otherwise be able to care for solely on the basis of being positive for covid nineteen a nursing. Home operator said this was effectively in order to take these patients in some of immediately objected. They immediately said we're concerned. This is going to exacerbate the spread of covid nineteen facilities but the order stood. Was there evidence that it did exacerbate the spread in their facilities. Well this is where it gets tricky. We know that thousands of patients were transferred from hospital into nursing homes around the state retreat march twenty fifth and may ten when this health department directive was re modified rescinded revert. You can you can take your so. The question is did. The corona virus come to nursing homes the result of this in july. The state health department put out a report which looked at the data and it looked at the dates of death. The dates of first positive cases in nursing homes around the state. It's inclusion was that in most nursing homes. The first introduction of corona virus happens before any of these patients were transferred before the directive was issued on march twenty fifth. It was staffers bringing it in. They lead that. It was safran because the correlation because the infection rates in nursing homes correlated with the surrounding community right. Obviously a nursing. Home doesn't exist. In a bubble people work there. You know somewhere else to live. And the health department said this was actually the factor even though nursing home operators said from the beginning. Hey this order. It's not helping. It's only hurting and to this day. There are operators to say that they believe it contributed to the spread. If not in some instances was the primary ause of the spread. It's unclear even now whether this policy forcing nursing homes to take in covid positive patients affected newark's total death toll that's because of a pretty grim calculus. It's possible that additional deaths in nursing homes were actually offset because freeing hospital beds allowed more coronavirus patients to be treated what we do know now. At least is that cova deaths in nursing homes. Were not being tallied correctly. That's because of a patient became so sick. They were transferred back to a hospital. That death was counted as a hospital. Death making it nearly impossible to understand. Just how much. The virus was ravaging long term care facilities.
The Lucas Bros, Using Humor 'To Shake Folk Woke'
"Kenny and Keith Lucas are stand up comedians and identical twins. People don't have to react when I see twins. No. Okay, they go crazy like we were in the supermarket looking for some Jell O. Yeah. And we're just about to pick it out. And then some dude came out of nowhere. It was like, you know, you guys have a stick of Doublemint gum. That's from their 2017. Netflix special Lucas brothers were having a moment right now they're writing and starring in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, But they also wrote the story for the new movie Judas and the Black Messiah. The film premieres today in theaters and on HBO. Max NPR's Elizabeth Blair has this profile. The Lucas brothers are best known for a kind of stoner humor. And here's a rule of thumb You should never do. Shrooms wouldn't do Who looks like you, man. I'm telling you. But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news
Surveillance And Local Police: How Technology Is Evolving Faster Than Regulation
"Are used to the idea of that American intelligence services, such as the National Security Agency have enormous capacities to track our phone calls, emails and movements. And we hope that rational and constitutional rules for their use are set by our elected leaders. But our guest journalist John Fast Man says most of us don't realize that thousands of police departments across the country also have access to some really powerful surveillance tools with relatively little oversight. There are devices that scan and store the locations of thousands of auto license plates they encounter randomly on the street. Portable gadgets called Sting rays that Elektronik Lee mimic a cell phone tower and get every mobile phone within range to yield its data and cameras, cameras everywhere increasingly with facial recognition software. Fast ones. New book explores these new technologies, the questions they raise about privacy and the controls he believes citizen should impose on the agencies that use them. His book is we see it all Liberty and justice in an age of perpetual surveillance. John Fast Man is the U. S. Digital editor for the Economist and the author of Two novels. He joins me from his home in suburban New York. John Fast Man. Welcome to Fresh Air. You know this book races? Ah lot of skeptical questions about law enforcement. And I'd like to begin by just having you explain what kind of time you spent with police officers and police chiefs and sheriffs and others. Observing their practice and getting their point of view. Well over the course of my report and going back to 2010. When I was the Atlanta correspondent for the Economist, I've I've written a great deal about criminal justice issues, and I've embedded with a number of departments over the past decade for this book. In particular, I probably spent the most time with the LAPD. I went out with their patrol division. And I spent time with with Sean Danowski, who was then an assistant chief learning about a predictive policing program They use called prayed pole and we can talk about that later. I also embedded for several days with the Newark Police Department. Toe learn about how technology is used by police officers in their day to day job. So one of the one of the challenges and writing about this is that I would hear about this technology from tech companies and from police chiefs from a sort of 30,000 ft view, But I really wanted to see how police officers as they work integrate technology into their daily jobs, how it changes the sort of practice Of being a police officer. Okay, So let's talk about some of these technologies. One of the things, of course, that people are aware of his video surveillance. I mean, there are You know, security cameras in so many places that police typically Consult after there are crimes and given areas, But you're looking at ways that this is being expanded in, particularly in Newark, New Jersey police have something called citizen Virtual Patrol. You don't explain what this is how it works. Sure, the Citizen Virtual Patrol is a network of cameras placed throughout the city. These air public cameras now one of the things when you talk about CCTV cameras, the overall majority of them are privately owned. But these citizen virtual patrol Is the network composed of publicly owned cameras that people can access from a laptop. Now the idea behind this was to sort of allow people to observe and perhaps testified of crimes from behind a veil of anonymity. So it gives people an eye on the entire city and let people see what's going on. And John. When you say people, you mean just ordinary citizens, Anybody can dial up and look through these cameras. So that's right. A citizen anywhere can log into this citizens Virtual Patrol of Newark, So I live about 50 Miles north of New York, and I could log in at my desk and see the feed from any one of the 126 cameras that the New York Public Safety Department is placed around the city. It seems a little intrusive, right? I mean, somebody who just wants to be a busy body. I guess. Other people would say it's no different from looking out a window, right? You're not peeping into somebody's apartment. What concerns does this race? That's right, technically. The cameras don't show anything that an observer on the street couldn't see so that shows public streets. It's not aimed at anyone's apartment. It's not looking inside anyone's window. On the other hand. It does show people's yards, where they have a slightly higher expectation of privacy, and it could provide some information that people wouldn't want known about. For instance, if I'm you know, let's say I had an ex who lived in Newark and I was watching the camera trained on her house. If I saw her leave with some suitcases and then saw no activity at her house for a couple of days. I could surmise that she wasn't there. I could also know when she goes out when she comes home who comes to a house all these things that of course I could. I could find out if I observed her in front of her house. But that would make me visible. This renders me invisible and it lets me observe, lets anyone who logs in observed an enormous swath of the city. So that's another thing. I think we need to think about when we're thinking of police technologies, and that is that any single instance maybe unobjectionable, but when it comes to scale, you're talking about something very different. Do the police think that it's been helpful. Have there been any complaints or any notable benefits to you know, to law enforcement from having all of these windows on the street? The police do think it's been helpful. The police think it helps people keep an eye on their neighborhood. I think the idea was that a citizen of a certain neighborhood could keep an eye on what was happening around her without sort of making herself known to other people around her as as someone who's watching, So it lets her Keep an eye on what's happening around her behind that veil of anonymity and the Newark police think that's good public safety. On the other hand, I spoke to the director almost Sinha, who's the director of the value of New Jersey, who made the same point that that I just made that what we're talking about is it scale quite different and the camera sort of give information about people in their private activities. That you wouldn't necessarily want to know, and that if you did try to find out, you would be observed. This lets you do so anonymously and invisibly and that anonymity. Invisibility has benefits, according to the Newark police, and also detriments, according to U S. C. L U

How to Know Exactly What to Work on in 2021
"One of the biggest mistakes i've done in the past and i've seen a lot of entrepreneurs do is if they have too many goals right they try to achieve too many things and therefore they don't know what to work on. They don't know what takes priority. They say that everything's important. We want to have a bigger market. Share we wanna grow more customers. We want to be more profitable. You wanna have more revenue. We wanna lower costs. They want more free time. They won't more Autonomy they want to hire more people they say all the stuff we wanna do all and this is what makes it difficult to choose what to work on because certain things will help you which one of these goals. But the things won't this makes it difficult for you to know what to work on. Because you don't know what takes precedent what resources you need to spend or us on tasks or projects. It can get really overwhelming. So i want to challenge you as we start this year to reevaluate. What your goal is for this year. A want you to choose one goal one focus for the entire year. I mentioned this before. This is something. I learned from. Noah kagan who was employee thirty facebook and he learned this from mark zuckerberg and facebook. They have a singular goal. Now that goal may change from one year to the next before the year. that's all they focus on one singular goal for them. It was growth for them. When noah was there as employees thirty it was getting as many users on the platform. Now what's great about. This is that any time they make a decision what to work on the just have to ask the question. Does it help achieve their singular goal. If it does they do if they don't they don't now of course it's going to be a lot of gray area in between we'll talk about that in a moment how to evaluate. What are things will get closer to that goal or not but none of this is possible if we have too many goals and it's a lot easier if you just choose one goal now this is where the fun part comes. You get to choose what you want from this year. No remember next year you can choose a different goal but just choose one. What is the one thing that if you achieved it would make twenty two one success for your business. Maybe you want to take home on more profitable. So profitability is our goal maybe actually your array profitable and you're really happy with that level profitability. And now you wanna make your goal reaching more people so growth. If you're let's say your fitness coach you want to double the amount of people impact now as you could see. I'm choosing goals. That are quite broad but at the same time they're specific to a certain outcome so be careful. Don't choose things like. I want to improve my blog. Well why do you want to prove was wrong with the right now. Well i wanted to be like this. Why do you want it to be like this. Well i wanna attract new customers. What's the point of attracting new customers. While i want them to convert wanna grow my customer base so is growth customer growth. Really what you're looking for. That's really the goal because Improving your blog is a task right. It's one of the tasks you my focus on this year to help you with growth but really improving. The blog has an end goal. Really go deep. What's the end goal. So now that we have one goal one focus for the year We make that a big bold statement. This is what we're shooting for. Okay now there's a ton of things you can do to achieve a particular goal. Let's say for example We're gonna use facebook's growth goal. They want to bring in as many users as many customers as possible. They have users because they don't really sell a product they sell advertising. But the point here is that. Let's say you're trying to bring in as many customers as possible now. Remember if that's the goal you're willing to do things to achieve that goal meaning may be lowering your prices to get more customers or running more sales or more offers or doing partnerships or spending money on marketing. See the point here by something. Are you going to spend something to get that ultimate goal so your goals growth. Let's say what are the things that you can do this year in your business to help grow your usery's to bring more customers in one of those things might be. I wanna start a youtube channel. One could be. I want to create a free course on my website so people can opt in get on my email list and convert them into customers in other one might be marketing campaign. Where i'm gonna do weekly deals on my products and services another might be. I'm gonna launch an affiliate program. So i can get to bring in customers for me so these are just a list of projects that you can just do a brain dump in document the title. Today is lessons. What do you work on. But we're really specifically. What are you work on now. Next all that kind of stuff. So i'm gonna tell you what year do with this list if you have a team and if your soul preneurs let's start with team and this is a concept that we borrowed from the people at basecamp jason freed and david hammer hanson or the team members ryan singer wrote a book cults shape up a highly recommended if you're in the software business but it's their way to decide what to work on to improve the product product management but the concepts in there can be applied to any business and while it console wanna share with you today. They'll help you choose. Is this idea of pitching and betting ideas. So for example i wore ninja. We have a goal and we have a list of ideas of ways. We can achieve duggal new features new initiatives all that kind of stuff and people in the management team are responsible for creating a pitch for each idea. So each of us will take on two or three pitches. What does the pitch. It's basically a message aka document Inside a base camp that just really advocates for why we should do this task why we should take on this project so for example somebody might say you know if we want to grow our customers. We have free plan. So they'll you know right up a few paragraphs put some thoughts. Maybe some sketches and say you know what this is why. I think we should work on the free plan I or next. And everybody will do their pitches and will throw them into basecamp which is a project management tool and we'll all read these pictures and then one day we meet together on a video call and we do what's called. The betting table is what they call in shape the bedding table and allows us to bet we get to our for what we should and should not do as a team we collectively say you know what these tasks are the most effective things we can do to get a sore goal and in this exercise as a team we discover which things we should do first second third throughout the year. Because we're gonna work on the things that were going to move the needle. The most i now even if you don't have a team maybe it's just you. Maybe your solar moore. You can still. Do you. Still write down your ideas. Ri- some details about these ideas. Why you think they can help your business. This exercise of advocating for this idea and writing it out. It's not just for fun okay. It's not just to go through the procedure by writing things out it forces you to really think about. Is this really something that's going to help. Not just on the surface ideas on the surface. All seem all k. They seem like good ideas but often when we have to defend these ideas and explain why they can really allow us to achieve our goals or our singular goal. In this case we start to realize Maybe there are other things that are better to do. Maybe not as an effective ideas. I thought it was. Or maybe it's a good idea but it's a nice to have not a must have so even if you are solar newark right down the reasons why these ideas should be implemented and then once we have all these pitches for yourself you can score each pitch from one to ten one. Being least effective and ten is most effective in terms of achieving your goal. This will allow you to at least have a rough way to kind of score each pitch and then order them based on how effective they can be to help you achieve We're looking to do year.
Lake Erie's Revenge: The Cleveland Browns Date With AFC Destiny
"Thanks for joining me. Man going to be on with ov pablo jake. Trotter covers the cleveland browns for espn and before that you reported on the big twelve and followed baker mayfield's meteoric rise. So you live in cleveland. I live in cleveland. I live about five miles away from the browns training facility in berea. Ooh so listen you are right at the heart of everything you cover the browns. I want to understand what does winning this first. Playoff game. twenty six years doing it against is truly hated. Enemy in the pittsburgh steelers. What does it do for a city after two decades of being like generally humiliated. How would you describe the energy. Jake in cleveland right now. Yeah i would describe it as one of the greatest moments in the history of the city. And i'm not just talking about football. I'm talking about all moments. If you talk to people who grew up your they would say that sunday one of the happiest days of their lives sunday night after that win you could hear fireworks going off around cleveland. I don't know who has fireworks in the middle of january but people have them. Apparently people were driving up and down. Their streets warns it was a very exciting night. For cleveland and one that they've been waiting for for twenty six years and really forever considering how dominated they have been by the steelers over the years. Yes i'm looking at a list of things. Actually jake that happened in nineteen ninety four when the browns won their last playoff game. Turns out the number one on the billboard charts. Was the sign by ace of base. Is that all sound right to you. In terms of how did all of this has been feeling. Yeah i've been doing this all year checking what songs were number one at a time. The browns headache milestone. I know that when they were foreign one for the first time since nineteen ninety. Four when bill belichick was still the head coach. That boys to men actually had the number one song on the billboard. Hot one hundred. That kind of gives you a little context of how long it's been since the browns were at this point. I mean they're starting quarterback for example wasn't even alive to rewind to a little bit more recently the week leading up to this playoff win over the steelers it was. I don't even know how to explain it. Other than just like total chaos. Breaking news into i ate out of cleveland browns coach. Kevin stefanski has tested positive for covid. Nineteen according to our adam schefter to other coaches and players dealing with kobe related issues. They're closing their facilities fellas. They ultimately competed with kevin stefanski in his basement. Watching the game not on the sidelines. So what is this week been like as it relates to cove it. They had a practice on wednesday which was weird to see because they haven't had a practice or very many of them not even just last week for the last couple of weeks. I mean go back to the game in week. Sixteen when they traveled to play the jets. They had to delay their flight because they had a positive test from one of their players. Then they had to put their entire receiving core as high risk close contacts on the reserve covid nineteen list. They finally get to newark. They stay the night there. They were not able to do a walk through before leaving on saturday so they held a walk through on the fifth floor. The parking garage that morning adjacent to their hotel really from that moment until now it is been total. Chaos i mean they have had almost every single day since then. Something chaotic happen where they'd had to adjust. They went the entire week last week. Almost without a practice until getting one in friday they finally got kevin stefanski their head coach back in the building on thursday. It has been a bizarre couple of weeks. But to this team's credit into kevin's stefanski credit. They have never panicked. They have never felt sorry for themselves and they have been able to overcome it. Which is the most impressive thing. When this team given their lack of success in the past in the way as they've come together their ability to overcome different curve balls that have been thrown their way.

"And Keith you've just been to Newark to report on this for Guardian us. It seems to me the what happened. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, cast a shadow over policing in the city, but carried on Fidel cades to come exactly so this is a precipitating event in a lot of ways are meeting I think it was. The event that shaped my life i. Met someone named Larry Him who is a longtime activist in Newark? He was a child when these protests happened. The rebellion broke out that all changed. It was like our political awakening on my political awakening, and this became the center of his life. So Larry Actually started his organization people's Organisation for Progress in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, and his purpose was to speak for the people in the safety of the black community in Newark Giardi, black cities or majority black communities, and they were patrol by nearly all white police force police are arresting and killing people right and left for a lot of times petty crimes. Using people violating people's constitutional rights, we and Larry seeing this. He's part of this community. His own family members and friends are brutalized, and he starts to be as vocalist possible regional protests and police brutality almost weekly basis. In her reporting in Newark and Kita kept coming across people like Larry, Ham campaigners driven by their own experiences of unjust policing. His weekly protests that began in the eighties, snowballed into pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union that finally forced the Department of Justice to step in the Justice Department investigation of Newark. Police seems to amount to quite an indictment of the police department when it comes to excessive force in stop and Frisk and reviewing and training officers, new work ends up entering this consent decree contract with the Justice Department which outlines a lot of ways that police need to be managing their forces in the city. Report calls for major reforms including a monitor of the department and early warning anything from exactly. What does it mean to be a community police force? What kind of use of forces appropriate? The Justice Department. Civil Rights Division says the New York Police Department needs a major overhaul. This consent decree lands in Newark, and it's implemented in twenty fourteen, just as the new mayor prosper elected. We have a lot of work to do. So after you printed celebrating today? I. Want you to roll your sleeves up. And get ready to. Watch videos of Ras Baraka speaking, and he's clearly incredibly passionate about this again partly because of his own experience, tell me about him. So when you speak to Ras Baraka you get the sense that he's a lot more comfortable being an activist than politicians. Knew? How? And a lot of this is because of the family is from his father, and mother were both activists, his father Ameer Baraka was a radical poet, well known in the community who experienced police brutality himself for this violence, where this rebellion is the inability of the city government to feel as human beings, the plights of the majority of the people in the city during the uprising in Newark. His father was arrested and assaulted, and and this is the sort of foundation that. Ross Baraka has when he's growing up. He spends many years as an activist. By the time he runs for mayor he has made police form one of his key platforms for the city. Newark is a world away from nine hundred sixty seven in some places. In some instances, we still there emotionally I think a lot of folks still in nineteen sixty seven. Because we have not really grappled with that, we have not dealt with it. So what was he? He promising to do what reforms did he start to make? So as soon as burqas elected, he gets to work. He starts establishing this independent Citizen Review Board, which basically allows community members and other groups to be part of investigating police violence, and almost as soon as he creates that the police union, which is extremely strong, sues the city for for trying to implement this, and that's a case that is still being discussed in the state. Supreme Court. He pushes the police department to recruit more black and brown costs. So now you have people of color or the majority population here in in authority and power right so and the police force until then was was still largely white, and also I think a sticking point is that they didn't live in Newark, they did not know the streets of Newark. He was really pushing them to become a community police force that actually understood the community would. Police Force in places where people can see them other than relationship that they have of cop and criminal. The Police Sean up with somebody do something bad. Have the police present? When things are okay? He starts to give funding to community organizations that are related to. Public Safety, but not the police. Because his thing is, we should be demilitarizing our police to the greatest extent. Their power should be solely based on the job that they should do not that social workers should do or that other mediators should do, and he puts that into action. And in many ways, this is part of what you'll hear. Protesters calling for when they say fund the Police they're saying. Why should we be spending millions and millions of dollars on police for doing work that they're not actually meant to do Why isn't this money? Put into education? Why isn't this money? Put into all these other social services that we really need in cities like Newark, about so interesting. I think when we hear the phrase. Defend the police certainly here in the UK. That sounds very extreme like you're saying you should dismantle the police force, but it sounds like what you're saying is. There's a spectrum and that includes ideas like best taking some funds from the police and place in the mouse wire. Hasn't Ross Baraka push back against the language being used against the phrase deform the police. Yeah, I think like a lot of phrases something like the words. De. Fund the police has become incredibly politicized in an reductive and I do want to say there are some people who actually just wanted fund the police entirely or abolish the police. In this case, you know Ras, Baraka recently called this concept, a sort of.

"The Hitler effigies in the building and in the in the area in the street you burn books. He burnt Hitler effigies. A group of Nazis actually attacked a child like an eight year old with a lighting fireworks. Because I was probably illegal at the time no now he's actually walking home from school and they carve swastikas into both of his forearms carpet into their into his chest. But they were they were some cops came I Stephen King Bullshit. Exactly like it and they heard the Nazis weren't charged which some complete bullshit. They were immediately released and then they burned a swastika into a tree. Outside of this kid's home like they would target. Kid IS JUST SO RANDOM KID. God like it wasn't even like the kid of a cop. It was just a random random acts where they're like that kid looks Jewish folk among its Burnham. And this this attack on the child was the last Straw for are now. I'm sure like he is who is at this point. So nineteen thirty eight. I got scribbled in because I forgot to put it in first time The Nazis organized a rally and now are no created a coalition protests. So we actually want with the protesters most the time. They're just in with the protest protesters but he actually went to the protest groups and said hey this is now they fucked up this kid. We're not gonNA sit for this. Yeah there were thousands of protesters and hundreds of COPs. They called cops in from neighboring cities because they knew this would be a huge a huge issue God he had stashed weapons. People were hiding weapons in their clothing. They were fucking ready. And the Nazis were just no longer in any way yeah eleven. Pm One Nazi left the gathering hall and that started it. That started the Ryan. The police tried to separate the groups and create these cordon zones. So the Nazis could leave without being assaulted but that you'd have gotten knock and got the living shit out of to an inch of his life because the protesters and amendment then said caulking can hold his back. You can leave or we're going to beat the shit out of you too. So the COPS got the shit beat out of them and a low Nazis came out and then turned around and went back inside the the simpsons gift with a grandma walks in takes his hat off hangs up turns around picks up his at exactly goes back in. They completely overwhelmed the cops. The Nazis were like barricading themselves in barricading. The windows and the doors wall people were throwing stink bombs and bricks through the windows so they're trapping themselves in with this lake stink bombs smoke ball on makes and basically random attack started to happen from miles around. There was like a six mile radius on a tax from this point which was crazy like. This is a huge attack. It was. We're done with your shit. That's we gotta do what we can. And then very soon after Kris tap in which was basically the night where the Nazis went full Hitler and just targeted. The Jews killed Tunsil shipped off over thirty thousand people to the camps. Like this is when it started in four and this of course piss everybody off but the Bund Kinda didn't put rallies in Newark for about three months for some reason I wonder why even though they had a ton of membership three months after this event. The the membership to the wound peaked. Twenty two thousand Nazis assembled. Why God in a celebration of their peaking of Neha reaching new membership hit their peak. Twenty two thousand. Nazis assembled crazy amount. There were one hundred thousand protesters streets around this place book. Yes all of the you know. Two thousand minutemen spread throughout and it was basically plays out like the other attacks bricks and rocks and stink bombs people hiding in crowds beating the shit out of people pipes and bats and knives police. Hosing down just everybody And ambulances just lining up waiting to take people to hospital. Damn it was. This was like the explosion bigger than the last. Where you you know if you have over one hundred thousand people in a protest. Shit's real at that point seriously. My favorite thing is the story really. Just Kinda Peters out up three months later coon was arrested for. Grand Larceny and forgery. Between these three months there were smaller fights but nothing as big as that night But yeah he was arrested he. The camps were all found with evidence of espionage from Nazi Germany. So there were there were actual spies in these camps like sending communications potentially creating weapons and bombs and nation. I feel like prior to this. It wasn't like they were like okay. This free speech you can do this. This is fine. And then like like you said Christopher Tappin and America was like okay. Wait is over. The line hills are now. It's not just free speech now. It's now you're not genocide and so I feel like that's probably why they start taking their larger stance on it like because before it. I'm sure they really didn't give a shit that there were like actual Nazis and actual German representatives in the United States. Running these organizations like Yeah Freedom Freedom Freedom and then it's like shit goes down freedom's only GonNa get you so far in this. You're fucking douchebag exactly exactly this was the tipping point and yeah he cou eventually fled to Germany. Which oh I got later on. I'll talk about that in a second and then the war broke out We officially declared war started rolling out to Germany and Net. Arnaud began to focus on antiwar groups and Nazi sympathizers groups. They beat the shit out of those people. Now not just the NAP Nazis but anybody who said No. We're not going to go to war. We don't want to go to war. You get beat up by Jew because at this point are no had an interesting perspective on this that most of the United States didn't and that was no. It's obvious these people are doing horrible. Genocidal acts against the. Because I'm living in you know I. I've been fighting them for years. I know their ideology. Your than the average American medicine would shit is getting fucked up. He knew about the thirty thousand people being shipped off to the concentration camps in during Kristallnacht and most of the United States. Didn't you gotTa Know Your enemy? Yeah exactly so yeah they targeted on these groups and not even his group but pretty much. Everybody started to target Anti-semitics yeah that works And the minute men who would then begin to protect pretty much. Any religious procession like there were there. Were certain times when like there was one specific event where a rabbi took out these ancient scrolls and they were basically bringing them from one building to another one and to do this. They had an entire procession of an extremely respectful like congregation. People were showing their support and then some Nazi showed up and tried throwing bottles at the fucking ancient scrolls which even I'm not Jewish but I suspect the fucking history of ancient fucking scrolls blows my cousin spells on m. l. the Jew gold. Yeah because an unimaginable. Spills are always on scrolls. Just derail everything. Yeah so that those people got the shit beat out of them good. This woman came to net Arnaud as the war. Effort was ramping up and came to him. And as a mob boss does says now are no. You are going to enlist in the military net. Arnot said did I mess up essentially medicine a direct quote. Did I mess up it? Are You sentencing me? Basically saying do I need to go to war and die or do I need to go to war and try to survive. And he said No. You need to just go to war. Because you've been fighting the Nazis for this long. Now you as symbol are going to go to war. Now's the time to apply it. So he made this. It was a huge deal like he was covered by newspaper. Reporters him going to sign up for the military and they made this huge deal about it because he was a local hero. At that point he was actually the second wave into Normandy. Oh Wow and he survived. Got Shot five times. She's but by the time in that assault. The Nazis were so out of resources that they wouldn't bullets so he ended up surviving. Wooden bully started voting bullies. Because they didn't have metal on they were melting down everything they could to make bullets. I mean I guess it makes sense but like I had no idea wooden fucking bullet raising fuck so ended up surviving. And he eventually returned to Newark. He had spent up to that point. Twelve Years Fighting Nazism twelve entire years of his life justifying Nazis as longer than World War. Two as this man. That's fucking dedication. I spent twelve years doing anything. Yeah exactly probably jerking off. I knew your thinking it. Of course why wouldn't I just? Yeah that's a fair point. Yeah so he got arrested. He was doing some some fundraising he got caught. Basically doing the all insurance scam hell. Yeah on his own and we gotta do a scams two point. Oh and it's GonNa be about this sneaky schemes sneakers games woman basically got him out of jail and said hey you're going to go to California you're going to be a legitimate liquor salesman for the rest of your life and this is the last favor that you'll get from me. Kelly boy so he did he. Basically he flew over to California. He contacted his his I would say high school sweetheart but he left school at Sixteen so as middle school middle school sweetheart who even at that point was still kind of into him married yet It's actually kind of a kind of three story. He was like thirteen or fourteen. It was when he started fighting and she was like nine or ten. Just just hear me out. I know I know I wasn't it wasn't the A. It's it's messed up nowadays. But he handled this in a perfectly respectable way. He basically she was getting. She's going to get the shit kicked out of her. He beat the shit out of the people who were doing it. He said Hey. You seem like a a swell Ou- here's this. It's like a piece of paper with his name. His current address and said maybe in a couple years we can get together a he wasn't actively trying to pursue anything with her when she was nine and he was fourteen. It was what a free seem like. You're really nice so maybe when we become adults we can like hang out Netflix and chill and what was really interesting. She did reach out to him because back in the day you could pretty much just put a name and a city onto a letter and they would find it Yeah so she. She eventually contacted him. Sent a picture of her when they were in their early when she was in her early twenties and said. Hey this is me me calling you back and just kind of left it open to. If you're interested on here like we can date let's see. And then she found out that he was NAT Arnot the Nazi Nazi fighter worsely. It worked for her. She was like this is even better And Yeah they flew out to California together. They ended up getting married. He became a family. Man had a bunch of kids and haters his life forever. Now he he. He was weird because he got the best deal out of this..

"We're not cigarettes for being beat the shit out of the and it was making his group look. Unpopular is making his group his image. Look not as good on the world stage if it was just his group. It wasn't really all that great like with the amount propaganda is peddling at the time Germany. Yeah I'm no even even in the. Us really yeah. It was crazy. That's why all these groups formed because the propaganda machine was so works so well I mean that's why only the Japanese people got sent to internment camps and not the German people. Well I mean at the same time getting really till the difference between exactly. There's also the Irishman our wealth. Those Irishman is a bad example. For me say but yeah that makes it a lot of these groups. Kind of dissolved couple about a year passed. They are still you know cracking down on Nazis and nineteen. Thirty six comes around and a dude named coon coon. He became the ruler of a larger Nazi group called the German American Bund german-american Boon boom which I think is German for bond. But I don't fucking know in coon the leader of the German American Boone. You he was like straight up German from Nazi Germany. Who came over here on a boat and he created his entire idea was he wanted to create a German government to rise from within the. Us government like get enough people in this group that they would vote for the German candidates who are also in the group he wanted to take control from within so this Russia are doing in America right now or like the Chinese are doing in Australia. It's it's a thing it's a thing I am never. I haven't heard of that now. Mike I'll get into that so it took it like swept the nation. Everybody wanted to be part of this. Every state just about had one of these German American ballooned offices and that Arnold caught wind of it and immediately began to take action at this point. By the time he catches wind is over ten thousand people in the group. Oh my God. This is a huge fucking group. Coon rallied and he actually called out. Arno specifically and said that they would not be controlled by the Jewish militia which actually gave A. I don't like that you're pounding your face and calling him. You have this post. This feels like propaganda. I just realized I do. Have that cursor up there. The best is at some point. I'm going to get a picture of you in front of it and then I'm going to take that soundbite and play. Well you blur my face. At least no it's not gonNA be borrowed and all black nipples just to really emphasize long lines. I love it So I got. I got to think about things before I nobody. Nobody listening is going to have context for like what the fuck poster does he have. And I'm not GonNa Telo. Its Yeah No. You're not that out over the next couple of episodes you'll see when we face propaganda are when we release our faces in front of this poster and still going to have the black bar over all right back to that. Arno net owner could not risk interest at this point because of his earlier things so they had to really key fly under the radar. Something that blew my mind learning about is that across the US. I have not seen Joe Joe Rabbit yet we will. I was GONNA watch it tonight. But no way from its. I got to work in the morning but it watch with me. Coon started a whole bunch of summer camps across the United States that were that aggressively targeted. Kids his idea was you target was exactly what Adolf Hitler did. He target the younger generation. They grow up thinking that they'll raise their children and it continues from there. You can't teach dog new tricks no matter how many old people you get in his group. They're still going to be people who don't support it. But if you recruit them as kids to hear good so there were over twenty camps across the United States alone and they just want it. They were just aggressively indoctrinating. These kids and a lot of people didn't support these camps. But whenever net Arnold would send people into these camps on the public days or like whenever the camps through like open house type things they would scrub all the Nazi propaganda and basically leave a picture of hate. Hitler next one American flag. Oh my that was on all like the the symbolism that was in these camps because they knew people would be coming in scope and different groups different regulatory groups and government groups kept wanting to inspect them to make sure there wasn't this a ton of Nazi propaganda in their like parent groups and things like that and now it's just like a photo of Hitler's enough propaganda but they basically coon got sick of it and said. Hey if anybody else wants to come in this Spec these camps you're not gonNA get out of the camp of life. We're putting armed guards out. And he cited that it was just too expensive and it kept disrupting the camp like routine to have these inspections coming in all the time. It's mostly because he didn't WanNa keep closing down all the propaganda like cleaning it up so net. Arnaud hearing that basically they're threatening to murder people kind of got got his shoe in that kind of allowed him to be a bit. Less restraint in his attack was going to say now that there's that retail orbit more because they're blatantly making threats. They had this huge rally going like Indiana Jones level book burning rally. If you Indiana Jones suffering the last crusade there we go like that that level of rally might because they have so many members as you like stateside. Us In the US good Lord Man near Newark New Jersey so they infiltrated this rally. The mid would went in and that aren't distracted some of the guards because everybody recognized him. Yeah in this group so he kind of distracted the guards while more people more of his people went into this. It was the way they I. It was kind of like an opera hall like when Multiple Tiered Seating and a k a huge huge event a fancy event producing hundred event at Madison Square Garden. So while he's like trying to get in distracting all these people he has another group so a third group now going around to the cars and they pay the. What's the Guy Car? Pay The valet to basically look the other way while they go in and they find Kuhn's second in command who's name I believe was Koontz. No it's not going to school. Wants and coon coon an rickles. So koonce was the second in command type thing. So they go in they sabotage McCarthy idea is they sabotage the car. The second drives down a couple of blocks away. The car breaks down. They ambush him. Beat the Shit Avenue. Make a statement. Seems like a great great plan to work out all right now. Arnaud goes inside down and listens to the the speech or whatever's going on. Yeah it was a speech and when the when when it ends aren't comes out and he's ambushed by reporters saying why didn't you do anything like you always go to these things to me goes on and and he he says no we? This was basically his alibi. There's another we didn't do anything because nothing of their speech was antisemitic. The only thing they took they spoke about in this speech was how other Nazi groups de-legitimize them and how the attacks by these Nazi militia groups because the minimum wasn't the only one yeah turns out and have these are creating roadblocks and are super unprofessional. And all this bs so he basically said now. We didn't attack because they weren't outwardly antisemitic. Kind of in like you said giving himself an alibi saying hey look. I didn't send my minute man and look I'm right here. Yeah I'm literally here. You can demand this view. Dozens of people recording Jesus. He's smart dude. So wouldn't the no offence to anyone? That's a boxer. But you really huge expect that to come out of like thinking about Floyd Mayweather. You can't even fucking read a book. These guys are back in the forties. He probably got hit bare. Knuckle Chris Benoit's yet. Oh God I swear to God. You said yet. So I'm I'm waiting for it at the off. I'd even better murder as Moscow. The he reunites with his mom and then he beats shipped over because he thinks he's still mostly living with his mother at this point. And His parents jared okay. Good good good so somebody the valley they think squealed so when. Kunz went down to his car he said. Hey this is Gonna. This is going to break down. I don't want to do with it but take us this information. Do what you will with this. So so Cool who wants a was able to escape by sending a female Nazi fanatic to jump onto the hood of the minute men follow car and go fucking Shit Insane screaming. You're leaving here. You're not leaving your hands. Like nails into the windshield. Like crazy. Aqap had come over and pull her off with two ex boxer. Mafia enforcers took three calls to pull this crazy late up. And at that point they lost the car the they assume that they went to some to a body shopper. L. Mechanic that was had Nazi sympathizers. Got The car fixed and never came back to Newark. Tam To Nazi should've just use women as they're like block in guys Italy's nuts. Oh yeah she was. She was crazy. I think they eventually Eventually arrested her but that one that plan was botched but they had tons of other plans of a similar scale that ended up working. They would arrayed theaters in the DARK SIMILAR TO INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. But not with guns all. Yeah beat the shit out of people and the bomb it they would ambush cars like they have a car parked in the alley.

Especially Jesus Jesus crepes. Jesus crepes Nazi Jesus. Crepes point that in the tags again now that this review will show up on. Google.

Okay in certain parts. I matter we're doing it wrong. Yeah right monogamy push bad a baby if you're listening promise. I don't mean it same. Would you not listening to do for Valentine's Day? I had a pretty similar harsh. I had a pretty similar experience. You know we just did. I went out with my fiance We didn't go to dinner because we knew it will be super busy. Which took a nice little day trip to some ghost towns and and the silo From the episode you chicken nugget. What would episode number two? Aj It's episode two zero two if you're on our instagram. You've seen the pictures that we talk about the silo together. Podcast couple. I forgot to invite you. You didn't forget to you. Just refuse to. There's a difference between forgetting refuse. You walk the original plan wasn't to go to the silo. Visit some ghost towns. You know. Find some minds. We got a break from the late. Eighteen hundreds of thing. I thought you were like from San Jose quite fucking you show me this or not or I didn't bring anything from them so it was really weird when we got there when we were driving similar to the original silos story. If you listen to that re parts of it a little bit here when they when the silo I appear they always described it as I showed up when it made experience with sweet tea him and his friend were driving around and it seemed like the silence of popped out of nowhere and we had the exact same experience was just kind of showed up. It was like a five foot hill that we went over and suddenly it was there like it's stopped the conversation in the same way like our stomachs Wrong terribly damn it was. It was so weird I wonder what that's like. I wonder what that feeling is fucking like. You'll never I'm not mad about definitely not we We pulled in and immediately another truck like fifty feet down. The road just pulled over and sat there idling the entire time which was pretty creepy. I took a bunch of pictures. There's a dead crow. Crow flew out when we pulled up. So that was spooky not spooky at Alfred Hitchcock right this. He had a silhouette back behind the windows and they it was. It was weird. Just we're gut feelings. Always Trust your gut but yeah it was a great trip. We also shot some guns something you also wanted to come to the desert and do with me but You weren't invited.

You were born to be a calmness. You've been doing it for decades and decades and decades sixty nine years but you haven't you haven't run out of things to say why haven't you run out of things to say as so many had a loud mouth just not kidding carried over into adulthood. No I'll never run out of things to say I.

I wish they'd kitchen North Carolina And most of the story on the main street were boarded up. They're having a tough time. And when I grow on Main Street it was a big Oilcloth Corp sign over the street and it should God bless are tobacco farmers and our concern Indians.

Let me look to be. Listen Sonny boy it right. There's going to be. They hit a ball. Someone else's gotta damn well chase it and that's how I feel about golf. We're speaking with Jerry. Izenberg legendary columnist wrote so well and so lovingly about the sport of baseball for so many years boxing as well. And you've got a big fight coming up in your adopted hometown is I. I like. I'll tell you what I don't particularly think these guys would be very much. Can I tell her audience? Who's fighting Jerry? Would that be okay? It's a rematch. Dion Day wilder versus Tyson Fury. They had that remarkable fight. Fifteen months ago were fury. Came up off. The deck. Seeming is Lazarus. Like you could argue that. He really should have been given the fight since he won senior. Your Yeah Yeah. I was pretty good I'll tell you what the deal is here. I you know I wrote a boxing.

Six foot six six forty seven. He knows how to watch. I can't believe it is great. He's got a great job. You know when to get in. When did it out? Here's a boxer boxer period. The other guy has one arm and it's like or studying shredder. Or yeah absolutely each. It's thunder and lightning and the cigarette is always you'll Hanson. I thought show. He said he had thunder thunder in his right hand. After he's part. You said I'm not going to start today and I am she's resided. I'll go SPA. That's his brother brings him in the ring. Hit some is probably his girlfriend jumps on his back. There only gotta tears issues. We don't balk somewhere so it's GonNa win this fight you're well I like the boxer. You like the boxer. But here's the thing right and Tyson fury remarkable boxer particularly at that size. But I mean. Wilders just got to land one of those right now. Got a whole. That's a great fight. Wilder can make twelve major mistakes right and win the fight. It's twelve rounds like right. Yup the other guy cut up make one although last time he did get hit and he's still got up by you. Don't think I always hellacious. Pike but again I look at wilder. Tell you something I I'm sort of a purist a little bit The only guy. Oh convince me that outside. You know. Non Traditional boxers can really win. Was Allie 'cause before back it up but in this particular case while the footwork is not good. It's a little bit improved but it really is not good at all these clumsy in the ring East got another He. He's basically a one hundred five although he's working on the arm but They're right arm. Hennessy hitch and it comes from an Awkward Angle. You're gone and and so I took fine. You got a lot of drama. I didn't check the board yet. I always tied up Schumer.

"A ten year plan to get out of all the lead lines again. We need the federal government's health. There's a lot going on then. We didn't just decide to focus on let over the past couple of weeks. This is something i talked about. When i was running for governor two years ago working on with the city from day one so two last quick questions here i mean what's turn vice for other cities a major metropolitan areas to try and get ahead of the problem so they don't end up where newark ended up with all due respect. I think newark doc is getting ahead of the problem. There's no amount of effort or energy than any city or any state can put into this that can match what the federal government can do odd delegation in both the house and the senate has been a very aggressive in trying to put forward water infrastructure legislation at the federal level because this is is far beyond newark or any other community in new jersey. This is a national challenge. That's the x. Factor that i. I don't think any amount of effort by the city or state can replace right. It's hugely costly in an issue in many many cities across the country but governor one less thing. I think that residents in newark right now or the residents who were relying on bottled water for drinking water underwood totally disagree with the notion that the city of newark is a head of the problem i mean what would you tell them well. I don't think you know you're here long lines. I couldn't get a bottle of water. There's no evidence of that so so that's that's number one. We've got state. Troopers folks that at each of these distribution centers three data points leading to distribution of now what is about fourteen hundred cases of water water a day to affected areas is in my humble opinion and i and i wanna shout out to mayor ras baraka in newark. That's getting out ahead of and so i i have enormous sympathy with folks who are particularly the most affected the very young the the pregnant nursing and the very elderly in including the city is delivering for folks who don't have the wherewithal to come get the water. It's being delivered to them and we're just gonna keep our nose to the grindstone here and continue to work with the the city and <hes> and until we get this right well governor. Phil murphy is the governor of the state of new jersey governor murphy. Thank you so much for speaking with us back and we spoke with governor murphy late yesterday well joining us. Now is yvette jordan..

"Benchmark in a particular particular woman's household <hes> that the times reports in february of this year <hes> shaquille thomas is water in her house was reported at seventy six parts per billion of lead. That's five times the e._p._a.'s action level so what's the problem here. Did the city of newark just not have enough places where they were testing water or did they know what about it. More and simply just failed to take action. I mean it seems people have a hard time. Buying three data points is is enough for a city to know what's going on in terms of the water coming out of the taps a couple of things. The big fix is to replace lead lines. That's gonna take a long time. We're gonna need federal help and as you might you reference. This is not just a newark issue. This is in other communities in our state and in communities around the country second step in the meantime and this is why newark has been addressing this and we've been working with them is you can put chemicals benign positive i would call it chemicals through the pipes that over time coat the inside of the lead pipes and prevent the lead from leaching off the pipe newark had been using chemical for a long time and back in twenty seventeen that chemical was deemed to losing losing its effectiveness so they're now passing another anti agent through the pipes called ortho phosphate. The early senses the ortho phosphate. It is it through putting the answer's. Yes and i don't know no one knows whether it's tomorrow or three months from tomorrow but that's a very encouraging sign that that that will address the issues that were dealt with so. Let me just be clear on something because i want to be sure we've got our facts straight here. In september the attorney general for the state of new jersey argued that new york was in compliance with the process required for water systems that are no longer deemed have optimized corrosion control was the ortho phosphate being added to the water in september of last year or did that happen later or go phosphate is is is cinch believe may of this year so what was he arguing then what was newark doing to ensure the safety of the water and saw on september seventeenth of two thousand eighteen. I think last year and again i'm i'm not sure the exact dates i believe last year. The prior chemical was go being used. It was still being deemed effective so as you know the big question that many residents are asking is. This seems to be a lot like what happened in flint now now granted the water source in flint was the issue there that is not yeah. No the source is not the issue here but it's the question of the sense of responsibility and proactiveness activeness of a city and state officials that people are calling into question was newark being proactive enough they are. I absolutely think they are they have switched which the chemicals they've got..

"Boston magneto bardy and this is on point this month the e._p._a. Issued a strongly worded letter to the city of newark new jersey warning that lead levels in the water for some fourteen thousand residents might be so high that residents should use bottled water instead moreover the e._p._a. Said said residents should not rely on filtration devices that the city had previously provided meaning. Yes lead in the water has been an issue in newark for some time but all of the sudden last week residents found themselves waiting in long lines for one of life's most basic necessities dead forget it. I combat warriner. Thank god for that first glance. This sounds a lot like what happened in flint michigan and there are very similar questions about what actions public officials did or did not take to protect the city's water supply but in newark. There's also a more mundane issue. It's about the aging water infrastructure beneath our feet so this hour on point newark newark old lead pipes and america's aging water infrastructure and you can join us. How old are the pipes that feed your house. What's the best way to upgrade our aging being infrastructure. Are you worried about lead in the water where you live now we did request interviews with newark mayor ras baraka and other city officials. They declined to join us us. How ever late yesterday we did speak with new jersey. Governor democrat phil murphy and we started by asking governor murphy how much longer newark residents will have has to be relying on bottled water for the folks who have lead lines and are served by a particular source which is the chronic area. It will be as long as is it takes until we are convinced that the drinking water is safe. The source water is absolutely clean. The issue is if you have a lead line emanating dating from that source. That's the challenge so it's about fifteen thousand or so residences in newark that are served by that one source and these lead lines so in an abundance of caution after only three data points the state the city have gotten out ahead of this are providing bottled water for folks when you say only three data points. What do you mean three filters in three different. Wards in three different residences in newark were tested so which it's based on those three data points that we have said you know what we're going to continue to test which we're working with newark in the e._p._a. We're now doing aggressively you to get more data points as you can imagine but in the meantime we're going to provide bobble water for those affected until we're convinced that this is in a better place so your points about the lead lines that are in the last portion of the delivery system to individual homes point well taken it. I want to explore that with you in just a minute because that's also the part that definitely you know cities around the nation need to be thinking about so do want to explore that with you but to this data point issue though as you know in two thousand seventeen the national resources defense council they learned that newark had elevated aided lead levels. I'm seeing the reporting here. That says independent tests in two thousand eighteen showed lead levels in certain places of at twice the e._p._a.'s.
