Douglas Stuart Reads Kevin Barry
"Hi douglas debra. How are you. I'm alright welcome when we talked about doing this. You had originally been inclined to choose a scottish story to read on the podcast but in the end you settled on an irish one. Do you think that the two traditions are interlocked. The certainly have a very close relationship. But even in reading the kevin body still here realized how much of the pronunciation and the expressions weren't familiar to my ear and so although the close they are quite different in terms of This story it feels a little like a fairy tale in a sense. I mean it has that sort of fable like quality to it. And i feel so it may work in a tradition of irish fables. To what you think you think it's certainly in that tradition of irish oto storytelling. It starts off with You know the narrator. Saying so. I bought an old hotel in the fjord of killary and just the way he brings you into the story. You have a sense that not only as a fable but it's the type of story we would pass around in pubs and from most both and that i think is the irish tradition and certainly the scottish tradition. Because sometimes when we don't find ourselves in literature it doesn't mean we're not natural-born storytellers and those oral stories. Don't always get written down. That is absolutely true here. And i think that's part of the charm of this is just the mixture of these canisters. When you see it almost feels quite other-worldly at times. And i chose the story because first of all it's just totally entertaining but also because it made me nostalgic for a time when we could gather and and be together without thinking about the consequences about the weight that comes with with those gatherings. Yeah yeah having scenes in a in a pub with everyone talking it feels like another world. That's true did you read the story when it first came out in two thousand ten. I didn't actually. I was led to kevin body short stories. Because norma s- fan of his novel night bhutan. Jere and i was thinking about what i wanted to read. I love kevin. Barry and i was actually surprised to see. He has published many stories in the new yorker. Yeah the first one. I believe and Do you think that this one sort of fits in with his general themes it. Does i find him always writing about masculinity especially men on the margins. But what's interesting about this is. There's an absence of hard man or criminals or Petty gangsters that he often populate has novels these other short stories. These are just people who are gathering together in a pub And there's a poet at the heart of it. We'll talk some more after the story. And now here's douglas stuart reading fjord of killary by kevin berry fjord killary so i bought an old hotel on the fjord of killary. It was set hard by the harbour wall with moody amount across the water and disgracefully gray skies above. It rained two hundred. Eighty seven days of the year and the locals were given to magnificent mood swings on the night in question. The rain was particularly violent. It came down. Like handfuls of neal's flung hard and fast by a cd asli royal sky. God i was at this point eight months in the place and about convinced that it would be the death of me. It's end to the fucking world stuff out there. I said the quotas of locals and the hotels lounge bar as always ignored me. I was a fruitful blue in by their mark and simply not cut out for tough gnarly west of ireland. Living there were listening instead to jon murphy or alcoholic funeral director. Albury anything that fucking moves. He said bastards suicides tinkers. He said i couldn't give a fuck monkeys he said. Maria is the most depressing mountain you've ever seen by the way and it's gone looming shape filled almost every view from the water's edge hotel. The loans bars included the locals drank. Mostly bushmills whiskey and guinness stout and they drank them to great excess. I wiped they're slobs from the counter. With the bar cloth i had come to hate with a passion verging on the insane.
New York Repeals 'Walking While Trans' Law
"It's 2021. There's no reason that people should still be profiled and police based on how they look or dress this week, New York State repealed all love. It's commonly been called the walking while Trans Bam! And it is a decades old law that has allowed police to stop people in the street for loitering if they were suspected of prostitution, and many advocates and legislators say enforcement of that law has disproportionately affected women and especially transgender women of color. Women have been arrested simply for walking home for standing alone. Talking with friends. W my sees Emily Lang unpacked the news of the repeal and what it means for many transgender women in today's episode of Consider this a news podcast from NPR and W N. Y C. Is that conversation with Rebecca Ibarra? Emily activists have fought for years to repeal this 1976 anti loitering law. So what was their immediate reaction? Activists are definitely relieved. For many. It's hard for them to say that they're elated or happy because they're still so many different ways that black and brown trans women can be harassed under the law or by police. And I mean this is the third time since 2017 that a repeal proposal has had Momenta Min, the state Legislature. So a lot of people are mainly thing. Finally. Um, but for someone like T s candy, who I spoke with men, she's essentially been one of the main faces of this repeal. Candy says, you know, after running up and down the halls of Albany trying to get people to listen now eating my words that she feels like she's now eating her words. We need to clarify Emily that this repeal does not mean people will stop being arrested for engaging in prostitution that's still illegal, right prostitution is still illegal. However, the fact of the matter is that 19% of all trans people and 47% of black trans women have engaged in sex work. And that's according to the U. S Transgender survey, just due to discrimination that trans folks across the board face Sex work is a way to earn an income were as an alternative to relying on homeless shelters and food banks. So while lot of lawmakers who voted for the bill do not support decriminalizing sex work The majority of trans rights activists see this repeal as leading them towards decriminalization. So what, if anything happens to people who have been previously arrested under the law? So this bill Included the ceiling of prior convictions and why that's important is because someone charged with this violation has a criminal record that isn't sealed, and so it can impact their access to housing employment on been many cases, their immigration or asylum seeking process so Norma Oh, Torrio is with make the road New York, and she's a trans right activists and immigrant before the vote. She was speaking at a rally about how being arrested under this statute impacted her ability to apply for residency in the U. S. The visa was arrested in Pacifica. Those can tango, no empathy doctor never off the narrow, which, after two years she still hasn't been able to gain So ceiling could help many people with their immigration status. Leslie what is New York's track record so far protecting the trans community and in that context How big of a change is this? Actually, So In recent years, groups have managed to secure support from Governor Cuomo and passing the Gender expression Nondiscrimination act also known as agenda, which tremendous the human rights law to prohibit discrimination based on gender, identity or expression. They've gotten him to ban conversion therapy on minors. But when the walking while Trans Coalition speaks to a new era, the majority of folks are referring to their fight to de criminalize sex work, which in Albany, there may not be the same support that there was around this repeal, so to be interesting to see how lawmakers respond. That's W and my seat producer Emily Lang talking to Rebecca Ibarra.

"I'm so excited to talk to norma kamali. Someone who is a friend who is a role model and his. Just one of the coolest women i have ever met. I'm lucky enough to have met her professionally. Had dinner with her many times and honestly there's not many women. I look up to to get all this energy like. She's done so much and what you guys probably don't know about her.

Never be able to get all of it in this interview but the woman is amazing. You guys have to know her. So here is my conversation with norma. Kamali hey norma how area. I'm good first of all. When i was reading my notes on you and norman i our friends. We have a newer friendship along knowing each other but a newer friendship. I didn't know you were engaged. Congratulations it's true. Yeah finally You know i got married at nineteen and divorced it. Twenty nine and i figured i did that. I don't think i need to get married again. And i really had no intention but At seventy five. I figured whatever why not so. You have been you've been with marty. For how long. Hand year okay. For aristotle her fiance is one of the most amazing remarkable man that i've met like foul of energy year with some pretty amazing too. So i'm eric we barely are women Who are strong and committed. Don't find it easy to find men who are strong enough to deal with their intensity or they're you know passion and we both are super lucky that that we are but the other thing you said which i just don't even understand when you say you're seventy five i mean i'm sixty three and people always say to me sixty three. You don't look at you. Don't act like you're the only person i know. That is my role model. Honestly because i. I don't have that many older friends that are spectacular in your spectacular experience. Sweet but bobby the idea first of all do you. Do you think of yourself as sixty three in the number. Now look at you. There's nobody quite frankly. Our the generations that came before me especially are older at they had different circumstances. I think it's very important. And i do this all the time. I ask everybody their age. And i feel entitled to since on seventy five. And i just say seventy five so the fact that you said sixty three and said it without hesitation is a really important message to send to other women. That and part of my book is about aging with power. And as long as you feel good about what you're doing and yourself and the doesn't mean it doesn't come with challenges. Your age is really your badge of honor and living a healthy lifestyle and doing things that benefit you give you the power and the string to wear that badge of honor. So i'm very proud of being my age and being relevant and enjoying new challenges and look at you. It's like why not at sixty three doing. All these things redoing the makeup. You're doing now. I love more than ever. I think it's amazing. Annual reinventing a product category as. You did the first time around and it looks great. And you're sixty three by the way now right i don't i right. You're right. I don't think about it and i'm not going to think about it. Honestly this conversation is not just about aging. But i have so many questions. I want to hear all about the book. But how did you meet. Marty at sixty five years old. Well ian schrager has been a friend of mine forever obviously we dated and were together during studio before and remain best friends and he never introduced me to anybody all the years he thought every guy out with was just like the war soon but he never offered any live rate outs great whereas the great opportunity here if you think there are so terrible so one day said i have somebody i wanted need. I thought it was for business opportunity or something. And i said okay and then after asking if you questions it was actually somebody that he thought i should meet and quite frankly. I didn't think she would be capable of Somebody of that quality the right person so yeah at sixty five figure i meet my soulmate and is it true than an astrologer once said you were going to meet the love your life at sixty five. That's crazy but it's in the context of being. It was nineteen seven gay. So i freaked out and i said I don't think you know. I don't think this is right. I can't believe that m men there was a figure of you have a lot of great friends. I date pretty nice people that are interesting bond but none of them were in the soulmate cabin. More eight run as like i. I called her. And i said okay you you still you still see her yes i might have. I might have to get her. I've ever ever used an astrologer or for jane. Never never no never.

Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil.

Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.

"norma s" Discussed on Real Estate Coaching Radio
"Connected with the communist government and Tiktok may have been removed from being able to have new content posted. I'm just thinking to myself how many agents out there spent how much time and money creating tiktok videos thinking that you're going to generate business after a long period of creating tiktok videos just to discover one day it was all as Tim until you've been saying and Norma S-, waste of time, and absolutely ridiculous to even consider in the first place and so yeah, that podcast I was listening to this morning. Really. Got Me thinking about how really incredibly. insidious. Some of the things are that people do and all it always goes back to me feeling. Honestly makes me feel. Responsible. Overly responsible perhaps, and also a little maybe I don't know the word would be but sad because I know there's agents out there that would have had potential to get into the business and be great. Be Great. Small Business Owners really have long term successful careers and then they basically decided to hitch their wagon to bad or dumb ideas, and then next thing you know they've wasted months and years nothing's really happening from it and then they're you know they maybe in some cases figured out that they followed the wrong path and they kept sprawling the wrong path in believing whoever it was that got him. On the path in the first place that eventually work doesn't work they then begin to lose financial control. They then fail out of the business and the next thing you know they blame themselves. That's where that's honestly what breaks my heart because when you guys all these dumb ideas and it doesn't work like it was promised to work because frankly you didn't do the work to determine that the idea was a gimmick to begin with, and then you then blame yourself ultimately for not having had whatever it is skill, the talent, the drive the mindset was allow you guys get stuck in that round hole to. To succeed, and that's that's that's really the insidious part of all these gimmicks..
What you need to know about open enrollment
"I want to give you an update on open enrollment, which is beginning any day now for many private employers, most of us. Who have the good fortune of having health coverage suing employer are go through these open enrollment periods where? You can change your coverage potentially your deductibles. What your premiums are going to be possibly have access to an HSA plan and I wanted to tell you one thing. A lot of people were worried about earlier. This year is not going to happen, and that is there are not going to be big increases in premiums for employer provided coverage that you would do during employer-provided open enrollment or if you're buying an individual plan and most of the country, you're not going to see any large increases if you're buying a plan at healthcare dot Gov or your state equivalent website for an individual plant, the reason is the cost of providing care for Corona virus have not. Changed the math four insurers for particular crazy reason. You know how earlier this year I was telling you about people who were not going to their doctor visits and people were even having heart attacks and they were refusing to go to the emergency room. Well a lot of. Normal. medical that people would get people weren't doing and insurers actually have seen a significant benefit. From lower utilization of medical services, and that's why there's not going to be big increases and premiums except in odd situations but unlikely and employers really don't WanNa rock the boat much with their employees. For Twenty one in the open enrollments coming up. But if you are someone who has changed employers this year lost your job got another one. The new job doesn't have health coverage. You then become eligible. To buy coverage for yourself, and if you have family members, family members as well at the healthcare dot Gov site, and if your state has its own, they will refer you straight to it. And that starts next Sunday. For the open enrollment period that is six weeks long for buying an individual health plan. And on their, you'll have a choice of color coded plans. That are bronze silver, gold or, platinum. And the colors is you go up. The colors the premiums are higher the coverage more robust but I want you to know that if you don't qualify for subsidies. On the exchanges, the premiums you pay are frightening I mean they are very very large. The reason is the average cost of insurance for family. In the United States now from an employer. And it may not be what you're paying, but it's the overall cost of what you pay. The employer pays is now over twenty one, thousand dollars a year. So you by an individual policy, it reflects similarly and so the premiums are John Norma's. On the Individual Exchange though most people buy their qualify. Financially for some level of subsidy. That reduces the premiums a great deal, but even when you get past the premiums You got the deductibles that are pretty significant. If you. Wish you can buy what I a junk health insurance policy, which is one where you can buy it for a period of. A year up to renewing two more times for a total of three years that does typically does not cover pre existing. Does not cover serious illnesses typically like cancer heart disease, diabetes. But provides a base level of coverage with tight limits on total coverage. With very cheap premiums people argue about whether it's better than nothing or worse than nothing. But if the premiums at healthcare dot cover the state equivalent or out of sight, but you don't WanNa be completely uncovered. You can look at that. The other alternative is what's so is a faith based health insurance policy is not really insurance policy faith-based medical reimbursement plan. That are offered by many religious organizations are religiously affiliated organizations where people of like minded faith pool their money together. And Pay. Some not all of the medical expenses of people in the pool. The risk is if you got a couple of people with this very serious illness, the pool can run out of money, but the premiums are much much cheaper.
Dept. of Justice Accuses Google of Illegally Protecting Monopoly
"We we turn turn today today to to title title fifteen fifteen of of the the United United States States code code section section two, two, which which reads reads in in relevant relevant part part every every person person who who shall shall monopolize or attempt to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several states shall be deemed of a felony and unconvicted thereof shall be punished by fine not exceeding one hundred, million dollars if a corporation. So, if you don't know now, you know the corporation and question of course, is Google which found itself on the receiving end of an antitrust lawsuit today filed by the Department of Justice and eleven state of general. So as we do when technology leads the news we've gotten molly would the host marketplace tech on the phone to make a smart? Hey, molly. AK So So many questions number one is who's been around for a long time. It's been John Norma's for longtime dominant for a very long time what took so long for this to happen. Yeah, well, it's really interesting because, and in fact, the Department of Justice notes this in their filing. There is legally a difference between being really really really big and really dominant as you know and between maintaining that dominance in a way that crosses over into illegality, and so it takes a while to make that case basically that maintaining the dominance is the illegal part whereas it's fine to just be gigantic route What's The counterargument? What's Guna say? We're we're just doing our businessmen nobody here, but US chickens. I mean, yes Google counter argument is that this is a flawed lawsuit and that there are plenty of options out there for search their official blog post rebutting the filing of this lawsuit included a lot of gifts in which people use being Microsoft's having. So if you know anybody who does definitely, let me know I want to talk to them. And then they counterargument to kind of the lawsuit itself which a lot of pundits said. N Even. Legal Scholars people who worked on for example, Microsoft case in the nineties said you know this? This case could have been bigger. There were suggestions that it was being rushed even over the objection of some career lawyers and state attorneys general in order to get out before the election. And the scope of it is very limited to search the counter to all of that. Of course, as you gotta start somewhere and these cases are a big deal right an and searches is kind of the low hanging fruit. Let me just back up a minute to that to that bing thing you are, and we've talked about this on making me smarter our podcast, your devoted user of Duct Dot Gov for its privacy implications. Of course, it's more protective than usual, but also the point being. How many really good options are there if you want comprehensive search, it's got to be Google right because they've got all the data and everything. Well, there are a couple arguments around that. One is that people perceive ruled have better search results because it's filter bubble because who knows a lot about you? So it will say Oh if you the example, actually that lawyer I talked to today gave was that maybe there's a plumber in your area and a lot of people have used that plumber before and so they'll search they'll service give you that search option I. But in fact, you might not want that you might want somebody who's better vetted or something along those lines. The Art. The core of the argument that the Department of Justice is making here is that Google has paid a ton and a ton of money to device makers, including apple and using its own android platform to make sure that Google is the default so that every time I, for example, want to use duck duck. Oh, in a browser or on my apple device I have to. Find the setting that lets me change that default and most people don't write and let the whole thing was what got Microsoft in trouble right with back low these many years ago. The last time we had an antitrust thing was they were put s right, right? Yeah. This lawsuit impact is very, very similar to the Microsoft case someone on twitter referred to it as almost a cut paste. Well you know they can. They can do that at the Justice Department. We got a half a minute tops what now happens inside Google. They fight this thing because I imagine even though they can afford a lot of lawyers it's going to suck the life out of them.

"Patriots Pau Spartan here from the Midnight Patriots. So, one of the. Feel about anchored now. When we started this insanity, we always tell people.

Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

Sentiment Preserving Fake Reviews
"My Name Is David Delaney repeal today at Zaylon inversely I walk with a spoken language system who will do research on natural language understanding like some speech recognition on mostly natural language processing very cool. Definitely some exciting areas. Do you have a particular focus within that field or a special problem? You're tackling. I'm walking mostly on privacy. Preserving looks stems, but I'm working on the test. Side this guy when you're ready, do speech recognition on you? Try to remove over private information. Ice remained in his. His speech transcript, so we have focusing on out the way neutralize. Every private sensitive was in speed transcripts I see a lot of challenges in that. If you don't mind before we get to the main paper loved unpack it a little bit more. It would be natural that you could recognize someone saying okay. My pin number is one two three four, and you know to blank that out, but I imagine there's some trickier problems to. Could you give an example of a really tough situation that's. For Algorithms phase ample warn really difficult task is style the rightist time on speaking style, so dare ways you could kind of hot noise to dispatch cigna in such a way that you're not able to independent voice, or was it get to speak transcript?

Will the main paper I asked you on to discuss is generating sentiment preserving fake online reviews using natural language models, and they're human and machine based detection so a Lotta great stuff that is right in line with what we talk about data skeptic. Maybe we can begin at a high level, fake reviews or nothing new. What's becoming more interesting? What's changing right now? It's very problem probably is one of the reasons why Amazon hard like. By and you're not from a big defense we have now is. We have very good motives that gone generate through ain't synthetic text, as it's very difficult to distinguish from humans and technology, ordinarily talk models gets bit day by day at by professor used to say like what is the new this month? So this guy like almost heaven wants you have. That's along with coming out. As assistant improves also the difficulty in disagree real awesome, the difficulties I Siam. We'll given the state of the art when you as a human being read certain reviews, does it pass the imitation game? Can you tell those that are fake in those that are real? I think this is really difficult. Phase observe in our paper is always by run on chassis, so must just get lucky spearmint where we give us as far views allows them to identify one review from four options. I think he accuracy was Sarah five percent, which means that. That is just like a game of chance I guess what. What's the point of these fake reviewers? Why are the producers of such things producing them the reason start? She could use it to in France. It was decisions.

Let's just assume reviews fake, and I have to take everything with a really really big grain of salt.

The Danger of Averages
"I want to talk about the danger of averages and to do that I'm GonNa read from a book called the average how we succeed in a world that values sameness by todd. Rose and I will read just A little bit of an expert here are excerpt. Because it's the story is fascinating here. We go in the late nineteen forties the United States. Air Force had a serious problem. It's powder could not keep control of their plans. Although this was the dawn of jet powered aviation and the plans were faster and more complicated to fly. The problems were so frequent and involve so many different aircraft that the air force had an alarming life or death mystery on its hand. It was difficult to be flying. One retired airmen told me you never knew if you're going to end up in the dirt at its worst point. Seventeen pilots crashed in a single day. The government designations for these non-combat mishaps were incidents and accidents. And they ranged from unintended dives and bungled landings to aircraft obliterating fatalities at first the military brass pin the blame on the men in the cockpits citing pilot error as the most common reason in crash reports this judgment certainly seemed reasonable since the plans themselves seldom malfunctioned engineers confirmed this time and again testing the mechanics and electronics of the planes and finding no defects pilots to were baffled. The only thing they knew for sure was at their piloting skills. Were not the cause of the problem if it wasn't human or mechanical error. What was it? After multiple inquiries and with no answers officials turned their attention to the design of the cockpit. Itself BACK IN. Nineteen Twenty Six. When the army was designing its first ever cockpit. Engineers had measured the physical dimensions of hundreds of male pilots. The possibility of female pilots was never a serious consideration and used this data to standardize the dimensions of the cockpit for the next three decades the size and shape of the seat the distance to the pedals and stick the height of the windshield. Even the shape of the flight helmets were all built to conform to the average dimensions of a nineteen twenty six pilot. Now military engineers began to wonder if the pilots had gotten bigger since nineteen twenty six to obtain an updated assessment of pilot dimensions. The Air Force authorized the largest study of pilots that had ever been undertaken in nineteen fifty researchers at right Air Force Base in Ohio measured more than four thousand pilots on one hundred forty dimensions of size including thumb length crotch height and the distance from pilots I to his ear and then calculated the average for each of these dimensions. Everyone believe this improved calculation of the average pilot would lead to a better fitting cockpit and reduce the number of crashes or almost everyone one newly hired twenty-three-year-old scientists had doubts. Lieutenant Gilbert as Daniels was not the kind of person you would normally associate with testosterone drenched culture of aerial combat. He was slender glasses. He lacked flowers and landscaping and in high school was President of the Botanical Garden Club when he joined the Aero Medical Laboratory at Right Air Force Base straight out of College. He had never been in a plane before but it didn't matter as a junior researcher. His job was to measure pilots limbs with a tape measure. It was not the first time gang had measured the human body the aero medical laboratory hard daniels because he had majored in physical anthropology. A field that specialized in the anatomy of humans as an undergraduate at Harvard during the first half of the twentieth century. This field focused heavily on trying to classify the personalities of groups of people according to their average body shapes a practice known as typing for example. Many physical anthropologists believed a short and heavy body was indicative of Mary and fun. Loving personality while receding hairlines and fleshy lips reflected a quote criminal type. Daniels was not interested in typing however instead his undergraduate thesis consisted of a rather plotting comparison of the shape of two hundred fifty male. Harvard students hands the students. Daniels examined were from very similar. Ethnic and socio cultural backgrounds namely widen wealthy but unexpectedly. Their hands were not similar at all even more surprising when Daniels averaged all his data the average hand did not resemble any individuals measurements. There was no such thing as an average hand size quote when I left Harvard. It was clear to me that if you wanted to design something for an individual human being the average was completely useless. Daniels told me so in the Air Force. Put them to work measuring pilots. Daniels harbored a private conviction about averages that rejected almost a century of military design philosophy as he sat in the medical laboratory measuring hands. Legs Way. Sin Foreheads. He kept asking himself. The same question is head. How many pilots really were average? He decided to find out using the size. Data gathered from four thousand sixty three pilots. Daniels calculated the average of the ten physical dimensions believed to be most relevant for design including height chest circumference and sleeve length. These form the dimensions of the average pilot which daniels generously defined as someone who's measurements were within the middle thirty percent of the range of values for each dimension so for example even though the precise average high from the data was five foot nine he defined the height of the quote average pilot as ranging from five seven to five eleven next compared each individual pilot one by one to the average pilot before he crunched numbers that consensus among his fellow. Air Force researchers was at the vast majority of pilots would be within the average range on most dimensions after all. These pilots had already been pre-selected because they appeared to be average-sized. If you were say 6-foot-7 you've never been recruited in the first place. The scientists also expected that a sizable number of pilots would be within the average range on all ten dimensions but even Daniels was stunned when he tabulated the actual number zero out of four thousand sixty three pilots not a single airman fit within the average range on all ten dimensions. One pilot might have a longer than average arm length but shorter average leg length. Another pilot might have a big chest but small hips even more Donna. She dangles discovered that if you picked out just three of the ten dimensions of say Necks Conference Thi- circumference and risks or conference less than three and a half percent of pilots would be average-sized all three dimensions. Daniels findings were clear. And incontrovertible there was no such thing as an average pilot. If you've designed the cockpit to the average pilot you've actually designed it to fit no-one gangs revelation was the kind of big idea that could have ended one era of basic assumptions about individuality and launched a new one. But even the biggest of ideas require the correct interpretation. We like to believe that facts speak for themselves but they most surely do. Not after I'll Dang was not the first person to discover. There was no such thing as an average person. Okay I've stopped reading. That is from again. I mean give the book title. One more time from. Todd rose the end of average and I just wanted to call that I was thinking about averages and thinking about our propensity our desire to want to know what the average is for all kinds of spending line items and we want to know. What's the average spend on hobbies in general? What's the average spend on groceries? What's the average mortgage? What's the average? Pm I property taxes any number of things and I think the danger in that is that you start to think that you need to fit some kind of mythical average in your finances some mythical budget some perfect budget this average. And there's a whole other story in the book about Norma this it's about women's measurements in about how women weren't fitting this ideal and you know this opposed average. It's it's also very fascinating but the idea that you're supposed to hit some average. I think you should just throw it out. I think you should resist the tendency that we all have to kind of say. Well what's what's average? Where DO I fit? Don't worry about being average worry about asking yourself on a regular basis. What you want your money to do for you. And don't look around resist the urge to look around and figure out what kind of average you're supposed to be fitting into. I think people that can buck that that can fight against. It are some of the people that have breakthroughs whether it's in their personal finances or inventions or any number of other things so resist the urge to look for an average in conform. And make your budget your own. Make your categories your own own it. It's yours. Don't look to anyone else to let them say how they think you should do this or that. My guess is if we were to compare and try and find the average buzzer. My guess is we would have a similar result that there is no single person that fits this average of all of our different calculations so with that in mind just You know you're in the cockpit right. The Cock the budget is the cockpit. The cockpits where you where you drive the jet exactly where you need to go and what you need to do and in thinking about it that way this cockpit. This budget is tailored specifically to you. The success of this story to kind of tie it all up is that the military did embrace it and they resisted a lot of pushback from the engineering and manufacturing this. This is impossible. We can't make it but they were saying no fit the system to the individual. Don't try and fit the individual to the system and in doing that. They ushered in a whole me. They should in an era of improved flying. Safety Dominance in the air. It was unbelievable so resist the urge to try and find the average. You just tailor that cockpit that budget you and enjoy your

We're a convener for a great conversations that help of Industry Job Seekers We connect Entities to one another for sources of technical assistance and funding We're we provide grants in some cases to both manufacturers and Don Profit organizations that train job seekers As well as supporting unions so In my role as the New York City regional director in my in the piece of my work that focuses on supporting manufacturing I kind of naturally focused on the apparel manufacturing sector because there were many many needs Facing those companies but really we help Manufacturers across the board and get involved in lots of different workforce initiatives. Your question about what is Workforce Development For for the Fashion Business was workforce development. Sure will I think we're I think it applies to generally as well as for the fashion. Business really workforce development is looking at both the skill needs of employers to be able to remain competitive and You know produce. In the case of manufacturing produce their product sufficiently and it's also the need for skill development for job seekers and training programs that address those needs and allows people to earn a living wage and have a good quality job. So it's really both both those things in the apparel manufacturing sector there are lots of challenges around that A lot of that related to the store. Ecole offshoring of the industry And then some such subsequent growth in some reassuring but really different challenges and needs a major real estate crisis here in New York City and so I think a lot of apparel manufacturers are in what I would call survival mode They're not really able to focus much on training their incumbent workforce as they probably would like to. They're wearing so many hats they're juggling so many things they're dealing with a rising rents many of them have to move multiple times because they're Leeson's and they try to fund a new lease so they're just many many pain points for Apparel Manufacturers in particular and that's an area where I've tried to focus on providing some assistance to those companies. Now is it normal for a state to provide this? Is this something. That's in all fifty. It's actually really unusual and when I meet with people in other states there especially manufacturers. They're kind of jealous that. Wd exists in New York state. So the way our funding works is that we We're funded by the state Senate and so- senators Put Our budget request into the state budget every year and hopefully Nine Times edits ahead and we. We don't get cut at all and the GOVERNOR OKAYS OUR BUDGET. And so that's that's how that works but we are an independent nonprofit but we do rely on The state legislature who CNN. For the work that we do and so have continued to push for that support for us. We're grateful for that. So many of our listeners are from other states. Would it be possible for another state to also fund your organization and and get your resources into their? I mean we are very much near state. Focus but certainly We DO GET INVOLVED. Nationally in some initiatives so we we look at Look workforce strategies and we some of our staff do attend conferences and other states and kind of share our lessons learned here in New York. Stay so we're Very happy to share expertise and You Know Lease Organization of the Urban Manufacturing Alliance Was at their conference in Pittsburgh a year and a half ago. And so I you know we. We do kind of collaborate with folks in other states that are doing related work and try and share best practice and this may be pretty obvious question but why does the fashion business need workforce development. What's why do people need to be trained for for new jobs in the fashion business? Well for anybody sure. Why don't someone else someone else can weigh in? And I can jump in after that. I think when we talk about made in. Us initiatives in this country You know trade union professionals manufacturers all talk about the bottleneck being just a labor shortage in general and I think very simply put. That's because a lot of people don't WANNA working garment factories. They they have the vision of that as like Norma. Rae Standing on top of the you know the the spinning machine. And it's not that anymore so I think that's one problem and I think the second problem is that there's new equipment coming into factories and that requires people to have different skill sets than they might have had being a traditional sewing machine operator or cutter on a factory floor. The other thing I would add is much of the sustained job losses that were faced by the manufacturing sector came from a parallel textile. And still there are families that over generations watch watched opportunities get washed out So that's I think fueling in part the perception gap that there aren't opportunities Associated with the sewn trades and then additionally when you have job losses of those Of that magnitude You have a workforce apparatus that gets dismantled and so we have a lot of rebuilding to do as a city And really this is true of cities. Nationally To reinvigorate Not only the hearts and minds of people thinking about opportunities in this own trades but also the underlying workforce infrastructure that supports those firms. And I think also we're seeing right. Now is a resurgence of small lot production which is really where. New York City thrives. We've ton of small factories can get quick production into the market. And what we're faced with right now is a generational gap. We have sores. Were aging out of the workforce. And nobody's coming up behind them so if we're going to continue to be able to keep up with the demand of small production we do need to be looking forward. The people who are going to be retiring and replacing them in the workforce. And if somebody goes into this as their job if they get the training is it going to be a good paying job for a long time? Because I think that would be a question most people would have. I won't I'm going to be trained to be a professional sewer that is is that a career absolutely. It's a great job and the sewers. I mean at me mill so me Mills. I work within the Millennium Mills Office in Sunset Park so we are kind of a for profit nonprofit partnership and our soldiers have been with us for fifteen years and they're amazing they get paid well and they get benefits and I think that's increasingly becoming the norm. I feel as if there needs to be new value or renewed value. Put on sewing pattern making and just the trade in general. So what made you was it? What made you identify this need and start to train. And how did you? How did you even start the training? Can I call it a school or kind of all came about when we moved out to sunset park and you know I had been working in a garment production factory before this bridal and then moved over to handling Molina's production and I really wanted to open my own factory and I I couldn't find people to so and I was trying to navigate this very complex way of word of mouth trying to find through our sewers and other sewer who might know someone who might know somebody else who needed a job for a week you know. It's this really really cumbersome process and what I realized was the people who were hiring were in their sixties and they WANNA and worked for two days a week and that's not really what we needed. We needed a full-time sour and we need multiple fulltime sewers. So I came up with this program I it's built in modules and it's in three languages currently so I can train in Spanish Mandarin and English in part. Because of the millennials team We Have Cantonese Mandarin and Spanish speakers on staff so they really helped me a ton and it's been incredibly gratifying to see how people take to selling and the confidence that comes with it and how factories where we play students are responding to it. I think people are really excited to get new people in and help them and foster their development and I just like to add that so. Wd I funded Course of trade. Because we saw that I mean I've been visiting garment factories for the last four years and I'm consistently hearing about a need for skilled sewers In my kind of investigations into this Really students aren't learning those industrial skills anymore. And even at the C. T. E. Highschool secured at technical education high schools. Students are learning some of those skills. But they're really really. They're all choosing to go into a career as a fashion designer for the most part so there hasn't been that emphasis on those industrial skills as much as there was in the past. So there's been a real lack of training programs. I spent a couple years trying to look into. What are the training programs How could we put something together? Is there a factory that would loan their space in the evening or could we do it at the high school? Fit's labs are so oversubscribed. It's very difficult to schedule. Training programs they are for adult learners. So got introduced to Libyan heard about the training that she had developed and we were really excited to put some funding toward that to be able so so that she could train more people and fill more of those open roles.

Fashion at the Oscars, an Interview with Author Bronwyn Cosgrave
"Here to talk about the Academy Awards wisher just this past. Sunday right casts. Yes now I get to talk about all things red carpet I mean. This is arguably the Oscars arguably the most highly anticipated of all red carpets throughout the year. So you know we're here to talk about the Academy Awards and the Academy. Awards is the annual event of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which is an organization established by among others American Phil Magnet Louis. B. Mayer who was co founder of the Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios and it was founded in nineteen twenty seven and the academy originally had about thirty six members and that included quote unquote. Hollywood royalty like Douglas Fairbanks and his wife at the time. Mary Pickford and the Academy was really focused on promoting the Hollywood film industry at a time when it was not yet. The nationally internationally celebrated epicenter film production that it is today so the Academy Awards. Ceremony was instrumental in helping establish. The Hollywood film industry's reputation by celebrating. Its achievements across five branches so giving awards to producers actors directors writers and technicians and the First Academy Awards was held in Nineteen Twenty nine and unlike today it was not a broadcast event but was rather a ticketed private dinner that was attended by two hundred and seventy invited guests and this was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in L. A. Dismay will mark ninety one years since the Academy Awards debuted on May Sixteenth. Nineteen twenty nine and things. Well you could say that they've changed just a tad today. The Academy's membership has blossomed from thirty six members to somewhere close to a thousand and from its original five branches. It now has seventeen. Over twenty million people across the US tune into the Oscars each year and has really become one of the most highly anticipated televised award shows of the season and millions of us tune in just for the pre show. I would argue and we do that because we WanNa see our beloved movie. Stars walk the red carpet and why can only be described as high style? I mean so. Central is celebrity dress to the Oscars that the pre show is televised live so that viewers like April and I am Oliver Address. Listeners can get up close views of their favorite celebrities attires before they even take their seats so talk show hosts interviews stars about what they wear while others give a play by play in studio and you know on various platforms across the Internet. I know I shared all of my favorites on instagram. And the revelry all things Oscars fashion does not end here of course in the days and weeks that follow as in every year a ceremony and special edition magazines will be printed that are dedicated to this red carpet fashion and of course the Internet will be aflame with talk of the best and worst dressed. Cast we've come a long way from that very first private dinner in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and this has sparked our curiosity about just winded. The Oscars become as much about fashion as film and I started to research this topic and kind of dive right in but it was not long after. I began Researching that I came across. Bronwyn Cost Grace Fabulous book made for each other fashion the Academy Awards and of course I reached out to her and I am pleased to say she is joining us here. Today Bronwyn welcomed addressed Bronwyn. It is such a pleasure to have you here today. Welcome dressed thank you cassidy. I'm a huge fan of dressed. So it's lovely to be with you. Thank you so much and I have to say that we're here today. Because you wrote this fabulous book and I'm sure you've done a lot of interviews about red carpet fashion because of it your made for each other fashion and the Academy Awards. It's such an incredible book. You have this Great Inc. A primary source materials quotes newspaper clippings. And then there use these vivid descriptions to bring these nights and events to light and I just want to read a little bit from what you wrote about for the First Academy Awards which not aired because this is pre television but may thirtieth nineteen twenty nine for instance you write. A corruption erupted on the stretch of Hollywood Boulevard. Outside the Roosevelt Hotel just before eight PM at two hundred and seventy film industry. Silent screen notable slipped from a convoy of luxury automobiles and into its cavernous event. Space the blossom room. The Academy's prominent guests included Mary. Pickford NORMA SHEARER engine starlets Marion Davies and Joan Crawford. Lean and tanned. These actress lovely looked as delicious as their sugars. Spun Party Vapor a Waxed Candy Replica a Cedric Gibbons Golden Academy Award Trophy. So it's really these details that transport the reader back in time to that moment. So thank you. You must have had a wonderful time researching and writing. This book will thank you. I actually did not have a wonderful because I understand that because you know it's really it's really kind of you to notice the intricacy that actually went in to the writing of this book. The book took me three years and every single day of that was almost every single. Damn it was really one solid year of writing to the homestretch but for about two years. I scoured honestly. The world for information about what women wore the Oscars and my book really is about women and what they went through to get dressed and the great thing is that I did discover you. Know the bulk of that material in Los Angeles at the Margaret Herrick Library which is an academy library and a lot of it had never really been looked at and I'm also went to visit the great designers I went to the Dior Archive and John. Galliano actually called the archive and said you know. Help Bronwyn with what she what. She needs whatever she needs. Giorgio Armani also took it really seriously and help me. His team really helped me. I was very very fortunate. There's a great trust. One of my favorite dresses in the book is what we shall. Yo War when she was nominated for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and that dress was created from millions of Swarovski Crystal in Hong Kong by a very gifted designer named Barney. Chang and I what I actually noticed in the process of researching this book and why it took so long was that I kind of discovered a paper trail of identifying dresses and actually looking at the designer a designer attached to address in a caption say and looking at that dress in thinking that does not look like the work of say Howard greer who was one of the early costume designers and not all of the names turned up in in indexes for example addresses. So I really had to look hard and not believe what I saw imprint and that is something that I really noticed with fashion. History is that there will be a sort of myth associated with something. Say A design. Then it's not always the case and you really need to read between the lines and and go back to the primary source material and then to contextualized that all you know and put it in right into this story. This really captivating story. Yeah it's not an easy feat but you did it beautifully. Thank you but oh the one thing I will say about. That is that the book does also revolve around a celebration every year. So that really anchored the book the actual ceremony. Where you know. That was Super Fun. I watched every Oscar ceremony. That had been telecast. That was the first thing that I did so every Oscar ceremony that had been televised. Say I think it was like Nineteen Fifty. Four certainly the mid fifties onwards and really got to work with that material. Which was the fun stuff? Actually

Is something stuck in his thinking you know because sometimes I asked somebody do something. They're not doing it and then I'll say okay. What's what's happening because I don't get your doing what I ask? Oh I don't know I don't know about this will what is it well. My friend did something and it didn't work for him so it's probably not going to work for me. Then you have to handle that consideration. And then he does or she does right. Well I basically have a little testimony on myself. I was a little apprehensive at first because I'm very aware of other people's Energy and in infiltrating mine and I'm very careful about that but I've known you for a long time term norma and you did a little treatment on me I about month and a half ago I I went to the dentist because I have a tooth I I needed to have a new crown on and it's been painful. I mean it was to the point where I had to keep taking Ibuprofen all the time so so I decided because I don't want to get a root canal but I did go in. And they did a A pulp bottoming where they just take the top of the nerve endings off and the ran out of time. Thank God they ran at a time to do the rest of the the Root Canal so I have a temporary crown on it right now but I thought you know I really don't WanNa have to go get a root canal. I just have this resistance to it so I thought okay then you we communicate a lot and so you said well let me work on it. So Lo and behold I had no aw clue on what was going to come out. I had no clue and went in you del. You know had feet everything ping into it to get to the bottom of this and it was very interesting. This was what a week and is been over a week now and on the second day after you did the treatment with me because it takes two of us is the pain went away and I have not had pain since. That's wonderful and but what what was really interesting and even though I've done past lives before I was just kind of astonished when you had said You you went back. Eleven generations on my father's side of the family and it's funny because my family never talked about that side of the family was always my grandmother's side and low. Which is wonderful? But it's like nobody talked about the German side maybe for good reason but you know it went back. Eleven generations that I guess that the same phenomenon Um and your mouth was continuing so here here it is. Maybe I've broken the cycle and so my daughter won't have it. Maybe that I haven't Hammond pain-free yes thank you very. Welcome it Dr Nelson who I learned this from. He said that when ah it's natural for natural for us to have emotions all the time and most of the time we let him go bing bing bing but once in a while. We have anger anger or frustration or panic. We're even depression and we say oh I'll deal with it later later today maybe tomorrow and we never deal with it. Then he gets trapped and it's like my tissue here. There is the energy of the emotion and wherever it settles in irritates the tissues or the Boehner would ever and the longer. It's there the more imbalance and disharmony creates. And if you have these plugged all over yourself or layered is going to create an imbalance an illness in the body and once it's found and you remove them the bodies he's brilliant heals itself. It knows exactly what to do. So so you're you're helping US educate ourselves on out out and and thank you for sharing that so the viewers and the audience can understand how that works because society our society -ociety the media don't focus in on that and it's it's we can heal ourselves you know if we're where this we know how to do it yes and you know it's amazing the Ama says most illness is psychosomatic psychosomatic. Why don't they address the person's thinking were there emotions? The name many many many pills. Let's we won't get into the pharmaceutical companies another. Yes ten shows so the point is if people can start waking up that when they have the emotion motion go right into it. Feel it yell it whatever draw pictures and let it go. They'll save themselves a lot of being ill our our our society and we'd be so much healthier. If we all did that I mean you know it's easy to put it off it really. Is You know because we you know. Oh most we're not exposed to be able to do that in a healthy way in our society and when it's not supporting missing here in and Marin it is one of the things that's really not acceptable is showing your anger. If you're not directing it anybody but you're walking down the St and you just want to go non-acceptable and when people have to stuff that particular emotion it backs up the energy backs up backs up and it gets lodged somewhere so even if the best place to sound out is in a car best place well. I'm unknown for taking my tennis racket in hitting the bed that war I mean that gets it out of my body. That's exactly right. That's exactly where evening news also good and I want to introduce another element. If I may sound healing. Everybody knows how to sound. He'll everybody everybody and people say well. How do you know that you know how to cry? Crying is exactly cleanses of yes and the format of sound healing. When you cry? You'll see I'm going to start in the key of C or d sharp or whatever. You're just start with any sound. You don't even think it and it's a journey. You take not thinking intuitive and you cry and you get to the end. That's it when you're upset if people would be willing to make sounds any sound it'll take them to the next to the next to the next and before you know it. It's purged right out interesting. So what do you mean like any sound. I mean just like granting sighing. What do you make it? Don't like Yeah Oh and then it just keeps going and going. Yeah and all of a sudden you're complete cleaned. Sometimes you'll be shrinking at the top of your lungs and when you finish you feel better and it gets it out of your body and for people who have headaches headaches might try this. I was going on the freeway a couple years ago. I had this really intense ethic and I I just started going. I have a headache. I have the headache I do. have this awful headache headache. And then all listen. I was sounding away and I finished sung in out of your body. We started with this song and went to and when they finished he was gone is gone going interesting. The other thing about headaches when I used to do some work in corporations people. Oh my God headache. It's usually a conflict half of this and the other half other thinking says this and so I would say okay. What's the conflict because half of you is fighting the other half you as soon as they looked at with the conflict was and told me a bit about it? Guess what the headache went away or if it didn't I would say okay. You're stuck with not making a decision so is this. Is this conflict that you're talking about within themselves within themselves. Okay Ah should I tell my bosses should I should I shouldn't I should I in a and the two energies of yes. No and they form a ridge of energy. Urgency is a headache so I could intuit that and I said what's the conflict and they told me and I said okay so don't make a decision pick one side or the other as soon as they did that the headache left and they stood there. They couldn't believe it because they they didn't know that they could create that to begin with and then it could go away so quickly yes. We're not taught that we're we're not to. What do you do with your energy energy? What do you do with you? and well also being just being aware of our energy so many people are numb to it. They don't they don't own their energy energy you know so. It's hard to to be aware to it if you're not if you're not allowing yourself else to how to to feel that energy or to be with that energy I'm not sure I quite understand. Could you give me an example temple. Well I mean like any motion the energy of an emotion. Well yeah yeah or even mental. I mean it's there's mental energy you know from people I mean if you're intuitive you can pick up energy cheap but I I sometimes can sense when people are maybe. It's just a protection. They they hold their energy in because it's to protect them up. I guess maybe that's what I was talking about. When I you know when I like even here at the at the media center all the different people that come in and out of here and I can pick up on some people's body language and they're they're holding on that's clear sentence that's feeling not using the mind is using your higher senses to perceive or you go into a room and you go? I don't WanNa be here. I don't like how this feels and you exit remove. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah or or you have one hundred the phones. Good a ring. And it's your friend apple and you pick it up it.

Four guys who I had come in each one of them is is different has a different take on gender each one of them we're told they can pick anything in the collection they want they can coordinate anyway they want they can bring in their accessories and style themselves and they can pose in any way they want and the joy and Fun and the atmosphere in that period of time was so extraordinary that I'm going to do it again on mugging of film it the next time because it's so inspiring and it is so much that same spirit that took place earlier but the continuation so e Chippenham style the collection differently and they look so amazing even women are saying Oh my God these guys look better than we do and they just the spirit is off the charts so one guy had on a tracksuit a sequent tracksuit and then he put a big coup clearing on and he looked so hot it was like a Mick Jagger moment it's not like Oh what is that like Oh my God so amazing you'll see the and the pictures that it's joyous wearing clothes the fashion industry right now is so stressed on is GonNa work it'd be okay but the idea of a gender less definition of having a jacket than anybody can wear that wants to you were pants instead of a women's or men's department as a real opportunity for the industry to look at a way to reignite something would have been happening a long time ago that is absolutely fascinating I was thinking about when you were talking there sort of impasse when you started out it was perhaps the shackles of society and our idea of how men and women should dress but now it seems organically coming back to this more androgynous look or gender fluidity or however you WanNa put it and Unisex clothing a lot a lot of brands are selling what do you think equally you know restrictions today based on social media and marketing and it's projected that we address as men and women is that a restriction today are you the man who are afraid to be shamed they don't WanNa be shamed for not looking just right or in their circle or influencers who have certain poses certain dresses certain looks that they feel they have to wear to be looking great and I think that's very restricting I think the more individual you lock the more creative it is the more expressive it is and the more iskoe's that there's the sense of self that you're confident expressing when you have to look like everybody else it's uncomfortable and I think you project that I you guys actually look a little bit freer and looser and more relaxed about how they dress I think a lot of women are still concerned about looking sexy or looking feminine and I really think it's time look at me I'm actually dressed like a guy but I feel very feminine I don't think I project anything by feminity you're the ramones kind of look tonight uh-huh Black Rock Star but the point I'm making is this is very gender fluid you could wear this just as easily and and we would be both okay right we both look very good net I think when you look try to look too macho or two I an it doesn't feel like it's in the moment it feels like a different time I think when you can sort of slide in and out of it and feel good about doing that because we're all made of Feminine Masculine you know some days I'm more feminine than I am masculine but I'm definitely shifting back and forth I'm sure you feel the same way some days you're just feeling a different way and I think you should feel good about expressing that I think men that show their feminine Eddie two women are so much more appealing some much more appealing and I think for man you feel comfortable being with the woman that doesn't have makeup on I think it's not a bad thing it's just nicer to be able to put your hand all over her face and not feel like there's a crisis you have red lipstick and makeup all over your clothes I think that that is now and I think it's really a comfortable place for people to be so social media's tough shaming is tough Chamie in every part of our lives right now is just a horrible thing that's happened but you have to be even enough to stand behind to you are and how you feel do you think there's a difference today compared to when you initially had success your styles were shown on the front of big magazines cosmopolitan and things like that do you think there's a difference now because I imagine there was a certain way that those magazines projected live or should dress or should be similarities now it's very different magazines were very powerful and being on the cover of magazine or being in a magazine was such a big deal now I mean you know I did costumes for beyond safe for the lion king that video she did and so that was so much more powerful than having any magazine so that just viral Lee went everywhere and people knew immediately that it was mine and I didn't have to say anything to anybody I didn't have to get credit people just knew they could find out and minute so I don't think magazines are as relevant I think instagram is sort of our new magazine with video and and far more in the moment I just think there's a different way that you communicate what you do do you think there's still a role there though for that print I mean King of a magazine like playboy which trying to reinvent itself now and other ones if they'll still be as impactful in the world of of let's say fashion particularly I love that playboy launched dot com with Ezra Miller did you see the trump suit thank you very much heels I was so hot that's hello perfect example how do you get better than that and again I am so happy that my jumpsuit was on hem in playboy rather than the old stereotype of the Bikini on a woman with rabbits ears do you see that's a perfect example isn't that cooler is in that more modern and doesn't tell you that playboy is looked being at things through a different Lens so a magazine can be relevant if it adjusts and reinvent itself I think fashion magazines we'll have a real a hard time because fashion is still so confused ever fashion magazine really focused on fluidity in a second it would be hot in a second I mean if you just look at the pictures we took

I got a scholarship for painting I you and I got a scholarship at fit for fashion illustration I thought that would be my practical fall back my first job interview after graduating from fit was just object defying nightmare first experience at a job interview and it came in to the job interview with my portfolio there was man with his feet up on the desk eating a tuna sandwich and he said put your portfolio over there and come here and turnaround for me and all I could hear his my mother saying get a job get a job and I turned around and I was so embarrassed humiliated I ran out crying and I just said I didn't get the job and I never talked about it for years and thank you moved to this man for making me so miserable that I decided I needed to travel to see who I was what I wanted to do so I got a job at an airline and in the early sixties I'm seventy four now I've been in the business for fifty three years and so this is a way way long time ago and so in the early sixties the airlines where the hot like cool new modern thing so I got a job in an office at an airline and I was working on on a UNIVAC computer this is an art major and an on a univac computer and I was fascinated by it I have a real interest in Texas analogy and so that was like Oh my what is this I love this but the real benefit was every weekend for four years was at that job I was in London twenty nine dollars round trip I was in London at the very very beginning beginning beginnings of what would be the sixties revolution that inspired me to be a designer so I found my path thanks to that a horrific gentlemen in fashion and it was because of my experience coming here and seeing the beginnings of something really Mary do you think in coming to London and the upbringing you explained with your mother and that she used to make all her things and was very creative do you think those worlds mess for when you decided you can set out and do your own thing because coming to London you know different styles at different atmosphere but did that really push you to take the next step then London when I arrived left here was very gray it was the stereotype of what you know Sherlock Holmes everything is Grey it's misty gripe people wearing grey so when I arrived I was staying near the king's road and I went to Sloane Square on I asked this man if there were any shops and you know check in see what the close look like and said down the road and I didn't see anything but art stores and because Chelsea was really all about artists at the time and as I walked down the street there was a sound that I never heard music that I never heard because I was motown you know we were in most town worlds in New York and it turned out to be a Beatles song and I was like wow what is that music and then I see this shouted collar on the front of store and it went up the whole front of it out of the way it was like Whoa I see the light I was like a Zombie going to the light and listening to the music and thinking what is this I've found my home this is where I belong this is me and how fashion prior to that was like mad men you know course it its own not my personality and here this was the beginning of this freedom of skirt nobody'd ever seen knees before that and just not just skirt lengths and silhouette but collar and just excitement experimentation innovation and that is my personality and I found my home I also connected do the British personalities so Brits are very sober and sort of you know conservative however the a little wacky at the same time and eccentric and that's me that's totally me so London was a great place for me to discover who I was and really needed to do at the time sixties Psychedelia and had these amazing shops and artists and Vidal Sassoon and the Beatles beginning do you think that really played a part in changing the way things were in New York as well the world the world you have to understand this was the beginning of a whole generation the baby boomers are huge population generation of baby boomers who are now gonNA change the world it is so similar to what's happening now the disruption that's happening now is exactly what was happening next yep we have technology now so it's Times fifty and that change was never gonna reverse we were never going to go back it wasn't it trend it was a movement that would change the way people thought the way people behaved and in every country it just started it here and this was the place that it could only start this was everything was fast during here to make that happen they're supposed to I think one of your accounts recently talking about gender fluidity and you mentioned Mick Jagger is one of the people that really inspired that well he was one of many quite frank clearly who were experimenting with not only the sexuality of the time so my generation at that time we were much freer and more sensual and we touched each other we were always draped around and each other we were more experimental sexually so the idea of having boundaries was Iraq ace completely with the baby boomer generation and so the idea of being bisexual or not having to conform to having one choice was really sort of a subtext for everything that was going on it wasn't Oh oh my God what a big deal we talk about it we didn't care about it so if Mick Jagger wore lipstick and red nail Polish and was wearing feminine clothes he was just hot it wasn't like oh he's drag and this no he was hot and he wasn't the only one I mean obviously Jimi Hendrix and everybody that was in music but everybody was dressing that way guys looked amazing because they could go into antiquarian.

The Adventures of Mary went around and get lost and derive again. I don't remember other roller coaster. Eh You watch it every day. Lake Mary Kate and Ashley Video. I just got a I got a hold on the old days. You use your judgment of what I gotta do. It's like it's not like we're that fresh. I'm not that fresh up on it. Because I imagine it wouldn't be a thing that you go back to every no never not oh well. Maybe you do no judgment notice. She retired from that practice in nineteen ninety two but you know she had a long illustrious career and she also did a ton of other other things besides that career she also taught at the University of California Los Angeles and served as a director of the University of southern California architect skilled and she was a member of the Commission of the California State Board of Architectural Examiners wow yeah and the whole mouthful in the nineteen nineties she lectured at Howard University Columbia University and other schools and she held seminars for people who are taking the architecture licensing exams so she kind of worked as this mentor to other people. She said that she didn't have any mentors and role models growing up but was happy to be one to others which I feel like. It's important to remember like lift as you say that would be anybody. WHO's a first. How do you find when you're the the one that's paving the way remember when you once you have. Let's teach others to do so. I'm a big I guess you have. You definitely have to have a lot of resilience to to be a person breaking like that. Oh I feel that is dominated even now by pretty much. Mel People's People's uh-huh articulate as always one of those words. I love the word people's because it just automatically makes you smarter money's at mytalk. Yeah when I say people say no. Oh care giving. I'm getting these enduring aw all right now thinking more concerned about it. Don't worry about the I mean. That's got to be really hard to come into a field that is still predominantly imminently mel based in male-dominated and trying to lead away. Try New seminars. That's phenomenal as a black woman just paving her way through seatbelt that quote architecture should be working on improving the environment of people in their homes in their places of work and places of recreation. It should be functional and pleasant not just in the image of the ego of the architect said I think that's good insight into how she felt about the work that she did once he retired tired or I like this part. She lived with her family in southern California and she had garden parties in the spring time which sound really fancy. I don't know if I've ever been to to a garden party before but I would love to. I've been to one Wisconsin by June company and it was beautiful Jin. They're also much off. After like two is the thing that you drink at garden parties though no you drink like is it mint juleps type of thing and that's more isn't that whiskey NBC yes in style so more on those lines maybe a little bit of lemonade tease yeah but that would be what I would think of as Garden Party but but if it was my garden party a lot of I think we can make our own rules when it comes to the Garden Party so I think there's a lot of like that croquet. Okay game yes again which refers to heather's do people. WE'RE LETTING SAMANTHA DOWN ON FINDS The friends here if you if you keep naming things will shuttle theory you guys also have the spongebob reference what True Yeah. I will watch heather's. Yes we have a party. Let's have a garden party. Actually that was named party for that at one of the restaurants in Atlanta dressed up. I don't know what it was for but it was really. They're really cute and stuff like that. Yeah we can. We can make it work because what is it. The heather is like this is the sporty heather. Is it like spice girls but with heather who's the leader okay so I can just scary. Heather Heather would be one. Oh Ryder's character to whoever heather she's off Bianca. Oh I can't do that I can. I can see that out because they've come for you. GotTa get mean but Heather on Ryder's character is the dark haired. One INCAPACI- Shannen Doherty isn't as well as well as Christian slater. Oh what a cast best. She was still really active in all the architecture things going into the later years of her life. In two thousand and three she was appointed into the California architects board where she served on the Professional Qualifications Committee and the Regulatory Enforcement Committee. I was really hoping that she was just the the as the whole community wide. I'm here for what a bunch of other boards and committees to we don't even go into in two thousand eight the AI gave her the Whitney m young junior award which is an award that recognizes an architect or an organization that embodies the profession's responsibility to address social issues and she died four years later in two thousand twelve of heart failure at her home in California when she was eighty five years old yeah but she was clearly recognized as for the work that she did while she was alive but she has gotten a posthumous ord as well just this year in July twenty nineteen she became the first black woman comment to be given the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles Gold Medal and that gold medal is given in recognition of a significant body of work with lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture and that's the highest honor that the organization awards so she's as many people are in in have been awarded things posthumously as well so it's good to know that a person you know he's talking about giving people they're flowers while they're still alive and for them to be awarded while they're alive but also important to remember people after they've gone and the work they've done especially pioneering hearing it feels like this kind of opening like she acted as a mentor to opening it up to other people who may think that they don't have a place yeah and that and feels like this and I think about this all all the time when it comes to being I or being a black woman to pioneer spaces that a lot of people may think of as Weiss basis but they are our our meal spaces white spaces spaces for men and not having a kind of path or not seeing a path or away for it for you because you can't see yourself in that organization but there are you know they're. They're you know they're there and I think having you you know being able to look back at a legacy like hers and being able to continuously honor. Her legacy is important. When it comes to remembering that we can continue forward word on the path that she created there can be more black women architects in the field they can you can be licensed? You know you can fail and you can apply somewhere nineteen times and the twentieth Glenn will be the one that you get so. I think that's why I think it's important to look back at a legacy Lakers right. That's very well. Put US yeah I agree. I think we talk about on this. Show a lot the power of seeing yourself somewhere and how much that can impact to you especially when you're young child. You don't if you don't see anybody. That looks like you then you kind of think well. That must not be for me yeah right so I'm glad that we have people like this. We have our female I that are s being examples and being mentors. Oh yeah an in on female I I wanted to shout out a couple of other people because I know I mentioned in the beginning that he was not the first licensed a black female architect in the US so the first first black architect period to become a member of a it was Paul Revere Williams in Nineteen twenty-three and before Norma there were Beverly Lorraine Green and Georgia Louise Harris Brown and they were also thought to be licensed architects in nineteen forty to nineteen forty nine respectively in both both of them were registered in Illinois and so both of their stories are interesting as well and I felt like we talk about this a lot in I in how there is a path for a person to get to a first there were so many other hands involved especially when it comes to inventions and stuff like that that a person's I wasn't isolated and also continuing to put into perspective respective in context why I is important in terms of like well other people had access in. There weren't barriers for them necessarily but you know it's there. There were leading up to her becoming having her first there were other people who came before her in beverly and Georgia where to those people and so their stories are really interesting as well. Oh and Brown recognize the beer she face because he was a black woman trying to work in architecture so she learned Portuguese and move to Brazil in nineteen fifty-three three because you kind of realized there was a burgeoning growing architecture seeing there and she later got her architectural license there as well in Brazil and she moved there knowing about all those advancements that were being made and she was also kind of seeking racial democracy because there's this kind of propaganda machine going right now saying look at us we we have this really open you know racial situation going on in Brazil but without needing to go into the details of the racial yeah like a maneuvers of everything and still is happening in Brazil right now like it wasn't obviously as rosy that propaganda made it seem so you know that how's that thing but she also was successful when she got to Brazil and started working there architecture but yeah those are stories as well if anybody wants to go on that path and continue continue looking at all these architecture I in pioneering women in it. Yeah Yeah. You've got a bonus female. I listen here is like a mini female. I within the female for Homework Homework Yeah We. I've always wanted to assign homework your opportunity. It's time listeners. Go out and find more female. I for US and send them our way. ooh Yeah because I think that's about what we have to say about Norma. thank you so much always use yeah. It's enjoy being here so pleasure. Oh okay me too. When you come in we do and we would love for listeners to be able to find you because you do other things than this.

"So yeah she she becomes the first another I another firs lacks woman architect in California and stayed that way for very unfortunate long wait until the eighties wow yeah she was at that firm for a while to after six years at firm she became the director of architecture there and she hired people at oversaw staff and coordinated the technical aspects of some really big projects and so some of her projects were California Mart Fox Plaza Pacific Design Center San Bernardino City Hall and the US Embassy Bassy in Tokyo and her son said that she thought designing the building was the actual easy part of the job while the production of it all all the other nuts and bolts that went into it was the real work of the job easy to downplay when you're you've worked hard to get to somewhere and it's such a major position. It's easy to downplay and say Yeah Right. I just knew it I was you know that's the easy part but yeah I get how things like that have so many different moving parts so everybody's job is important but yes so she got she got to that point and for a lot of her career she actually served as a project manager rather than a design architect architect which was actually the case with many women architects who worked who worked in corporate farms so she didn't design most of the big projects that she supervised revised and Marshall Pernille who was a former president of the American Institute of Architects told. La Times that she could design large projects but that it was unheard of to have an African American female who was registered as an architect. You didn't try that person out in front of your clients in say hey this is the person running your project so Marshall personnel who is a former president of the AA told the La Times that she could design large projects Jake's but quote it was unheard of to have an African American female who was registered as an architect. You didn't that person out in front of your clients in say this. This is the person designing your project. She was not allowed to express herself as a designer but she was capable of doing anything. That's sweat sweat. Marshall Pernell said either way she was really good project manager anti state with gruen until nineteen eighty and she got she was married several times destroy life during the time she was at grew and she married Ralph Sclerotic an associate at Gruen who died in one thousand nine hundred eighty four so dot years after they married in nineteen eighty here's another I she became the first black woman appointed to the College of fellows of the AA and she was the first woman in and the Los Angeles chapter to be given that honor that same year she became vice president at the Los Angeles firm Welton an Beckett associates so she was the project director on Terminal One at Los Angeles International Airport which was a fifty million dollar project that she finished before for the Star of the Nineteen eighty-four Olympics. Oh Wow this is another part of her life which I think you two will really appreciate She Co.. Oh founded the women owned firm SEGEL's cleric and diamond with Margo Siegel and Catherine diamond and that was the largest completely women owned architectural firm in the US at the time yeah like that she was the first African American woman to co who own an architectural practice. Wow Yeah so many first thousand nine hundred eighty five yeah the firm made a a bunch of proposals that may propose on projects it got all of those commissions so they worked on the Tarzana promenade which was in ninety thousand square foot medical in retail center and remodeling of the Lawn Dell Civic Center and they worked on additions to schools and other institutional buildings so nineteen eighty-five this was after her previous husband died she married Doctor Cornelius Welsh so another marriage and she left Siegel Larrikin diamond in nineteen eighty nine even though the really cool thing to do because even though they had these fifty million dollar projects they couldn't get the large-scale projects that she really really wanted and she missed that kind of challenge in the money that came with those projects which is totally understandable there yeah she became the principal of project management. Ah Jeopardy Partnership which was a firm that was known for his design of public spaces and while she was there she helped design and construct the mall of America. L. Is back into the mall of America I have not I've seen the Mary Kate and Ashley Short Videos where they visited events okay now. I'm just annoyed but not anything gable.

"I don't know about y'all but like architecture's very interesting too. I can never I could never do it. They like but I think it's amazing in just something that's grown like become so innovative so quickly but just like it has so many different elements of things like there's two are. There's the math yeah they're the visuals in my you know to so many the physics of it like so many different things that go into it and so as a child she exhibited all these signs of being good and all these different areas so she had this art things he sketched she painted and she drew anti carpentry work irks. She worked on furniture yeah so she was really a cool. Gal since he was young and she went to public. Girls School called Hunter College High School while she was a high school student to and some of those same fields. She said that her grades were pretty good and pretty much everything I love it. I I know but she was really good at art sciences and math which is still pretty much everything good in general but it was her father who suggested to her that maybe you should do architecture and obviously then as there aren't there aren't many black people who were in the profession but but that didn't keep her from pursuing it so she wanted to go to Howard her father did but her father didn't want her to her parents wanted her to stay closer to home and so to prepare for Columbia University's architecture program she took liberal arts courses at Barnard College and Barnard College was associated with Columbia University versity but it was for women like for Women as Columbia didn't accept women students so she went through that those courses and then she got into the Columbia University School School of architecture so she remarked on how her first year there was super hard but that didn't keep her from coming back after the summer she came back in the fall like many of her classmates were war veterans Somehow Bachelors and Masters degrees so basically they have people around them and they already had all experienced unstable to help them through the process of getting through these amazingly can't even imagine how difficult courses they were so those people what kind of work on assignments together but she had a situation where she was commuting to school and sometimes had to finish her work on her commutes or at home alone so that kind of having we know like having how how having that support system is important when you're going through school right. Oh yeah she got her bachelor of architecture degree in nineteen fifty and she was one of the two women in her class and the only black win after that she applied to nineteen architectural firms she said in interviews like I won't forget that number nineteen eighteen but was turned down to every one of them yeah and she got hers on. She got the twentieth This is a quote that she says she said I don't know if the rejections were because I was a black person because I was a young woman or because of the economic recession at the time but she said those places were hiring. Women are black people so I think we can kind of go like right. We know what the issue was here yeah so does she herd twentieth one that was when she went to work in the city of New York's Department of Public Works as what she says. It's a junior address person and she didn't like the job because she couldn't really be creative in it so she wasn't there long she took the New York State architect's licensing exam and she passed stay on the first time which everybody doesn't do even though it was a really tough days long test and she became a licensed architect in nineteen fifty four and that was when I first comes along she became New York State's first black woman licensed architect so she he was hired by a private architectural firm at that point after she quit her job with the city even though her supervisor gave her a bad rep our friends and her relationship with that supervisor with her boss wasn't there wasn't anything wrong with it so he but he said that she was lazy she she got to work late ally that she didn't know anything about design architecture and that she socialized a lot so he had a lot of really negative things to say about her even though she never had any issues and she thought it had to do with the fact that her boss wasn't a licensed architect and with older and she was a younger black in licensed architect so a job she was a threat yeah I'm sure like old dude is like main. I've done nothing we feel this way similarly but we don't lash out the bad recommendation. I'm just saying felt threatened so even though she got out of her old job because she felt like she was wasting her potential she was still doing small small tasks like designing bathroom layout so she's still kind of felt away about that. he spent a year at that small firm and in nineteen fifty five she joined the office of skidmore more owings and Merrill ended up working there until nineteen sixty so that was a pretty big firm and at that major firm she was working on large scale projects projects and teaching evening architecture courses at New York City community college and so around this time she was a single mother of two children she had already been married and been divorced and her mother took care of her children while she worked so she did have a support system is not like nobody was there while she was doing all this stuff and in nineteen fifty fifty nine she became the first black woman to be a member of the American Institute of Architects Loon. Wow in one thousand nine hundred sixty that's when she moves to California and there she took a job at Gruen and associates in Los Angeles and just a side note about grew in Victor Gruen was is the person who was credited with kind of being a pioneer in the American shopping mall. He did a lot working. I think I talked about him recently because we were talking about food courts on others. Roy pointed me. You're not Florida. Yes shopping malls. Are I feel I don't know how sad I am about them leaving but do have I do remember the glory days going into the Disney stores. Oh Yeah and into the double layers and then you see store John Tucker trying to go right cookie inbetween always feeling like you were this close to like falling over the edge because they always had those on the top up level to like glass and I would always be scared like oh my gosh perfume every funny that things years no one else would yeah you can look down all you could smell perfume everywhere as a little kid mall town and with a giant mall yeah I went out well. You've been to China. I'm not sure if you you you have not but they had a million shopping. I don't yeah they have so many mall. It is ridiculous and they're huge. There's there's a basement and then there's a basement under the basement like you're still organiz now organized. You're probably like name what the categories of things are on each floor when you got to that floor yeah. I was like wow this makes sense. This is very organized like anyway the go-to malls in China. You'll be there for the next ninety years so when she was at grew in she recognized how much scrutiny she was getting from her boss there. She didn't have a car and she got rise with one of her her colleagues who was a white man to get to work and later she said in an interview it took only one week before the boss came and spoke to me about being late yet he had not noticed that the young man had been late for two years. My solution was to buy a car since I the highly visible employees. Employees had to be punctual and I think it's funny how she said highly visible employees. I feel like there's definitely skating around all the black woman yeah wheel and they wanted me to see my mistakes. We we get the subtext there. She got her architecture license in California in nineteen sixty two two and so she was the first African American woman to have one in California and she remained the only one for twenty years.
