"He wanted to know. If yoko ono and john lennon had his money the money he had demanded in the he sent back november. John and yoko got this letter right. Of course it. So where was his hundred grand. He wanted to know. December ninth was the date they were supposed to get them the hundred grand and now it was fifteen minutes december tenth. They were late. Where was the money yoko stalled. Of course she knew about the letter. The letter was written by people claiming to be the puerto rican independence movement. They described themselves as terrorists and took responsibility for explosions in several major cities in the us. Even though they didn't site specific incidents they bemoaned money problems within the organization and thus we're hoping to solve said money problems by extorting. One of new york's most rich and famous couples. That letter had set. Yoga's anxiety on eleven. As new yorkers didn't already have enough to fear in nineteen seventy seven. The city was still recovering from the shocking murders at the forty four. Caliber killer aka. The son of sam had committed putting every borough on high alert during one of the hottest summers on record. The letter brought that powerless. Feeling of fear. Right back as well as the feeling of paranoia. The same feeling that yoko and john regularly experienced at the start of the decade when federal agents were monitoring their every move the self-described terrorist letter had demanded that john and yoko leave one hundred thousand dollars in a quote unquote strong package in the lobby of the dakota. The letter gave john and yoko nine days to get the money together. December ninth and of. John and yoko didn't do as the letter instructed. The would be extortionists. Threatened to kidnap or even kill one of them. Were they go after. John yoko sean. It was crystal clear that these people weren't above kidnapping a two year old. John brought the letter to the fbi which he knew was more than a bit ironic given the fact that he and the fbi had been mortal enemies just a few years earlier. The feds agreed to help and tapped john. And yoga's phone again ironic. Given the last time the feds tapped the couple's phone. It was to build a case against them. Undercover agents went to work the dakota the feds posted armed guards. They arranged to get the requested. Hundred grand rolled it up a newspaper and left in the lobby of the dakota on december. Night thus instructed. The feds had enough agents haunting the place that when the so-called puerto rican independence movement came to collect there would be easily tracked and apprehended in. John and yoko could put this harrowing experience behind them in stop fearing for the life of their toddler son but no one ever came to claim. The money hours went by soon. The feds were concerned that the money might be accidentally taken by someone else who wasn't even involved in the shakedown so they took the money. Back can remain vigilant later. That night is. Yoko received the call. They were late where it was. The money go tried to explain that the money had been prepared for them as requested but seeing nobody ever picked it up it took it back for safekeeping. The caller got impatient. You've made a big mistake. He said right before he hung yoga hoped in vain. That the whole thing would just go away. It didn't or we glitter another letter arrived at the coda. This particular letter informed john and yoko that back on december nine is the day that the money was do. Twenty eight members of the puerto rican independence movement had surrounded the dakota building around eleven. In the evening there were all armed to ensure they had proper backup while they sent him a man to collect the quote unquote strong package from the lobby. There were expecting an ambush from the police. But of course there was no ambush and there was also no strong package of money. The puerto rican independence movement were disappointed in the wealthy celebrities they were trying to extort and they told john and yoko so in the letters that followed the fbi continued their surveillance. Nothing out of the ordinary happens. And they ran latent prints from the envelopes and paper and their lab. No matches as weeks turned into months and the letters and phone calls stopped. The fbi eventually decided. The john and yoko were no longer any danger. The feds wondered if there ever was any danger at all. John and yoko weren't sure if they should take the american government's reassurances at face value seeing is how this was the same government that spent an incredible amount of man. Hours in taxpayer dollars in the nineteen seventies trying to deport a beetle for promoting peace. So their feelings of true safety came and went because this was new york city.

"Joe biden who is mental decline. Should be nowhere near the presidency. Gave an interview to george stephanopoulos and george stephanopoulos. Did pretty well give him a five out of ten considering. They're both part of the same kind of group. We'll start with this one. We'll start with seventy two with joe biden where he said you're military advisers. Did not tell you that we should keep two thousand five hundred troops. Joe biden says no. No one said that to me that i can recall overplaying memory games now joe biden is so what is your name. How long have you been president. Who is your child very basic questions. Ono generals made that recommendation even mark milley. Who is the male military version of robin dangelo.

They wanted you to keep about twenty five hundred or no they didn't it was split. That wasn't true. I wasn't true so no no one told. Your military visors not tell you know we should just keep twenty five hundred troops. It's been a stable situation for the last several years we can do that. We can continue to do that. No no one said that to me that i can recall that i can recall even though that was said to him according to mark milley. Let me. Just say a side note. You look at mark million lloyd austin.

Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside.

Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace.

And i just want to push back on that for a minute because let's be honest. This is a lot of jobs. It's a lot of jobs and look the forecasts. Were all over the place. There's a lot of uncertainty right now. Some people were expecting a million jobs. Some people were expecting three hundred thousand jobs. Right smack in the middle. Was this six hundred. Seventy thousand number that get cited as the consensus but consensus implies a lot more unanimity Than there actually was so there was a lot of uncertainty year right. I will say that it wasn't that long ago. That economists were forecasting in the neighborhood. More or economists. I should say we're forecasting the neighborhood of a million jobs and like last month last month and expectations have been ratcheted down and so in that sense. I guess it is a little disappointing. But look where. We are clearly recovering. And it's gonna take a while before we get back to where we were.

So we've actually got a display. Capture this images from at you fix. Cbs's ono now. I've moved other things. That's okay there. We go supposedly this is what.

A McShake Up: The Battle Over McDonald's Ice Cream Machines
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a mcdonald's in possession of an ice cream machine must claim that it's broken. I mean it's just laughable at this point rate the mcdonalds ice cream machines are never working last fall. Rashiq zahid even built a website called mic broken. That shows a map of mcdonald's franchises across the us and lets you know whether or not they're machine is currently working. The website has shown that at any given moment in the united states. Five to sixteen percent of mcdonald's have broken ice cream machines. Here's the thing. The machines being broken. It's a feature not a bug. And i don't mean that the feature is annoyed employees turning off to claim that it's broken so they don't have to make flurries ono. It goes way deeper than that. I the myth of line about the machine. Being broken is well. Probably the myth while the taylor. C six zero two digital ice cream machine used at most. Mcdonald's restaurants is pretty incredible in some ways. They have extra hoppers and barrels allowing employees. To pull milkshakes and soft serve simultaneously and they have a heating pasteurizing rephrasing cleaning process that eliminates the need to take the machine apart to be cleaned every night like other as cream machines. But they're also super temperamental. One anonymous employee describes them to wired as being like in italian sports car. If one thing goes wrong the whole machine collapses and despite the efficient nightly cleaning process they still have to be taken apart and sanitized. Every two weeks quoting wired some pieces have to be carefully lubricated. The machines parts include no fewer than two dozen rubber and plastic rings of different sizes. Leave a single one out. And the pumpkin fail or liquid. Ingredients can leak onto the machine. One mcdonald's franchisees tech manager told me he's reassembled taylor's ice cream machines more than a hundred times and had them work on the first try at most ten of those times and quotes

"Ohno's wide array of sounds. Speak back to a certain emotional and physical categories of memories as a fly lands on. Virginia lusts fingertips eyelashes. Ono's voice also produces tile sensations like chills running down the spine or hair standing on end. Her weighty aspirations recall a lovers soft breath caressing the skin. Let me get tenor. Curiosity to the flies wandering. But when ona's breath rasping becomes her global. Sounds are like sharp pinpricks on the skit. As her voice greats like nails on a chalkboard we now might recoil from the same image of the exploring fly when the fly lands unless pelvis ono's growls elicit palpable shudders. Her yip's also border on excitement fly disappears. Ono's tactile utterances. Become low best. You'll growls from the back of her throat. These sounds folk. The practice of at throat singing traditionally a social activity for women while men were out fishing for the community and certain forms of throat singing to women face each other and challenge one another to throw tsing a certain pattern until one of them runs out of breath they lock arms and gazes and sway from side to side in an artistic and athletic feet voice. We can hear a variation of an expert singing from fourteen. Polaris prize winner. Tanya gawk and her track if inuk from two thousand and five long listening to fly with these techniques in mind we can hear connotations challenge or competition within those growls and grunts against these images. These sounds suggests both the flies hunger for flesh and the women's defiance ono has long positioned her voice as the primary force behind her artistic political projects in a twenty thirteen interview with helen brown from the telegraph ono states. Why is woman always known for pretty voice and pretty sohn's because that's what the world wants. They don't want a woman to sound too strong. We feel we shouldn't scream out. So i thought we have to show what women are. We're the birth givers of the human race. Why should we be ashamed of it or treated differently.

Her screams addressed the violence done to women as well as spectators who become bystanders. Like in her nineteen sixty four piece in fly on asks us to imagine. Alternatives torn normal ways of being throughout fly. We experience utterances of tingling grazes against the skin wales as the flight dares to probe the body's orifices and ultimately visceral howling as the camera reveals a host of flies.

The ambiguous situation his peaceful cords ease the militant and to this interpretation on voice also response with less intense streets and increasingly plastic earlier work. She leaves space for spectators to consider their complicity in violence but also the stomas contemplate the possibility of peace she grants that stillness and the film's final two minutes when the qatar and vocals suddenly dropped off to nothing at that moment the camera flies out the window. The bottom seems to drop out as we hang suspended in the sky. Shaken by what we've seen as the credits roll before the film ends. We heard ohno will as the fly by.

The foam fly combines ono's fluxes and feminist concerns but improvised vocals and fuzzy close up images which create an open framework for listeners to imagine themselves and both the subject positions of the violated woman and the fly. The footage was shot over two days of freezing. New york loft and then edited with a soundtrack that ono and lennon improvise together and one night ono improvised her vocals in one take and lennon qatar track. That sometimes plays in reverse. The result is a mashup of voice and psychedelic guitar against images that are both grotesque and sensual.

"ono" Discussed on Phantom Power: Sounds about Sound
"Completely psyched to bring you a story from a new member to the phantom power production team. Amy shirt south. Amy's a film scholar classical musician a co organizer of the great lakes association for sound studies. She's also a phd candidate and film and media at the university of chicago wrapping up a dissertation on pop music in film and media and today amy brings us the story of. Perhaps the most famous vocal performance artist and avant-garde musician around but at the same time someone who's actual work doesn't get the attention it deserves. I'm talking of course about yoko ono collaborator. With the fluxus group. In the early sixties consider performances such as cut piece and her bed in with john lennon in the late sixties director of experimental films such as one thousand nine hundred seventy s fly and recording artists of experimental pop album such as that film soundtrack yet. Despite all of this work her most famous role was that of wife to that guy in that band. Our performance that has made her the target of misogynist and racist criticism. That persist to this day as amy points out much of this criticism centered on the sound of yoko. Ono's voice of course as we've explored on this show before listening to the other with a racist or sexist ear is nothing new but in ono's case this prejudicial listening is compounded by the fact that years before the emergence of punk rock. She was pushing the boundaries of acceptable vocal expression for anyone let alone woman. Moaning wailing chortling and screaming. The vast majority of listeners immediately dismissed these sounds as a punchline on today's show we're going to actually listen. What is the purpose. And meaning and effect of ono's vocal artistry. Were exploring it in her recorded work in her political agenda and most of all in her film fly in which she uses her voice to destroy boundaries between sound and touch human and animal self and other. Here is the enduring voice of yoko ono by amy shirt jeff. Three days after donald trump was elected as the forty fifth. Us president yoko posted nineteen seconds of screen to her instagram and twitter accounts her caption read. Dear friends i would like to share this message with you as my response to at real. Donald trump love yoko long whole. Who owe at the end of the clip. You can hear someone laugh. And say that's an awesome quote. Several commenters took this greens to heart saying the identified with her rage and that it gives them hope but others piped up. The two broke up. The beatles and hurled racist comments at her like beatles fans did in the nineteen sixties pack then she was portrayed as a villain and the archetype of the significant other. Who's accused of running the band and on social media today. She's still demonized for being a noisy woman who doesn't belong in western music. Ona's critics have yet to realize the political value of her screens. The screens at trump weren't just a reaction against the election. But part of a resistance piece on a road back in nineteen sixty one. She called it voice piece for soprano which had three instructions. Scream one against the wind to against the wall three against the sky. The piece is an open framework for many forms of resistance an has performed at both carnegie hall and the bbc of modern art at the two thousand ten moma exhibit. A microphone was set up for visitors to perform their own interpretations of ono's three parts greens observers also participated by mashing up his own performance at the moma with.
The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release
Why Is My Arborvitae Turning Brown from the Ground Up?
"We had a question today. From dave who says he has several mature arba vita and they're starting to turn brown from the bottom up about two feet and he's wondering what could be causing that. And what do you think he should do. Okay now maturity is is hard to Speak to without looking. However when he says larger provided that are maturing then my very first thought is as normal plants lou. Well as they grow at the top they start by age losing energy in the lower part of the plant. It just is a natural consequence is kind of like kind of like my hairline ono that any on mark There may be nothing wrong with his plants other than age I don't know how to guide him other than to say that this might be normal. Maybe can't be changed and he should sink then of short plants that he can put in front of those that is the vita and and fill in that blank space now it is again common when there's vibrant growth in the top which is expected for that lower area to out. Now this is one. You'll have to study. Because where i am not into the word topping. When it comes to plants. I have done so now. It doesn't change what is already void area however if he should shorten those plants within reason and no more than maybe twenty percent he can slow down and there's a lot of l. non science and but he can slow down the growth at the top just a little bit and therefore help retains some of the foliage at the bottom just because it causes the plant to grow in a little different way. Now we're not talking about cutting them in half anything of that nature and it isn't a one hundred percent situation but i know that can help Then it comes to shade. If these maturing plants are in more shade or something in front of them Do against the sun's exposure that lack of light or reduction of light can indeed cause a plant to simply shall we say move on with top growth Shade can be a factor. I seriously doubt that there is a disease or insect however it is possible. So do the do the bag worm. Check for sure looking to see if they're not eating things up as they shouldn't Check on spring growth and on a calm day but a piece of white paper under that lower foliage and smack the foliage a little bit let the debris fall on the white page then in. I don't know if i were ten seconds. The little spider mites that might be in there we'll have righted themselves in hanging onto the paper. Then just tip the paper enough to let the extra debris fall off and then if you see little spots that are moving and these little spots will be smaller than the period at the end of a sentence but you can. You can rub your finger over them. And if you see a red smear you know you've got a treat for spider mites then The other thing just as keeping them. In good growth maturing plants Have a greater distribution of energy inside the plant in terms of from route. Two top just be sure that they may be are lightly mulched to keep the soil somewhat more moist and cool in the summertime Those things i bail. I'm gonna go back to the fact that the are. This is just an aging factor. Now there can also be bunnies which is not likely at all but bunnies and things that will eat the lower foliage so he he has to check to see whether it's just simply dead or whether it's been eaten and bitten off.

Dyscalculia: How to Manage Maths Anxiety
"Judy. Tell us about a holistic approach to the teaching of mass night. That's how. I try and teach. I try not to be teaching for task. Don't like teaching two tasks like to teach for understanding the children to really enjoy. We start to enjoy what they're doing in most of the children. I teach Come to me because they've got really really bad math anxiety. They've they've main off. Lots of them have had a previous shooter. Hasn't worked mind very quickly or you know a couple of months and then the chargers go royal. I want to know the show that didn't work. And then they've reached this awful point weather feeling so bad about my state just can't function And then the parents being really worried on they found may try to teach them In a way that brings down their anxiety. So there's a lot to do with The getting getting them said at the moment that they're not really bad anxiety. Why they they. They can't function that That working memory doesn't mean isn't working the processing speed is just gone. Room right down On that they just can't function so it's all about trying to get it so that we can bring down anxiety enough for them to function so can teach them so. He'll talk about the connection between the mental health and the readiness for landing. Oh absolutely yes absolutely not If that if that you scared in still not fight or flight mode. It doesn't matter wall. Brilliant lesson you chuck out. It's not gonna win and it's not gonna help so When i i. Don't a tutoring child. We play all sorts of games and i'm really into gamification of my lessons. A teach On zoom and. I use a bit paper. Think's brilliant really setup as interactive whiteboard. Especially for for chooses. That enables me to Bill to preload anything. I want from my hard disk or the all of the internet of resources i can make can bring on. I can pace them all into into the paper. And i have all loaded up almost pages. So those will be games like bingo. He had lots of things like bingo. Children love snakes and ladders yang jiao older traditional board games. I will have a aboard posted up onto my into my bit paper. And the first few you i if the child is really acutely anxious to that point you know we we. Just we just play snakes and ladders. I'm you know. I'm not bring in bringing down the level of difficulty or something to a point where it joyal i point. They can start to succeed. They can start to enjoy it. They can start in enjoy winning and that kind of feeling of yakov is kind of failing and you know to be honest. I don't have to play that level only playing the game if for very long. 'cause i generally get sick children. We've got a big Reach from now here. A giant dice. I've made out a twelve sided. Yeah we'll get it so that they've got one end the iran they've made up and we said that we can roll them. Show the camera how they wanna be. My my elephant along to was cutting crew. So they're just playing time and that that starts to bring down there that wrong society so that it can actually actually engage with me once they can start to engage with made than their anxiety does start come down. I mean very gradually i start to increase. We go right back to basics now. Children children come to me who are not managing to do the now. They can't do the gcc because many layers back down through the wool. I'll gaps and the thing i do a lot is is trying to find the gaps. I find by lots of all sorts of things that i do but not really aware that. That's what i'm doing and and very very quickly within the first session as we might be playing leader whatever particular snakes not as is one because children love it if you owe ono a three ono on the snake and you can't run the under the desks tonight that it's so psychological things isn't it and they will then you know. Even charlie's massive anxious will laugh. All i've gone down a snake and broken the ice and it's all about breaking the ice being to start to improve that confidence because they've heard the word matt's been in mice lesson they will have just gone into this complete lockdown on so say that that that the memory in the processes we all. That's just gone to. Paul won't do things i i hate tying tat's absolutely deplore because it really messes with children If you ask them to do the same thing not timed they will manage to get masses more done and masses. More roy nt the moment it becomes against the clock in any way It sets off this fight or flight response And then you brain diverts all the energy away from the processing speed and everything so therefore they lend then can't do and it's just this massive vicious cycle which is a tried to sort out or all the way through It's also this terrible habit that we have of teaching children to think quickly instead of deeply

"Hit, but it was after he died, just like starting over so It's an interesting story on this. He had been separated from his wife from from Yoko Ono. In fact, Yoko Ono gave John Lennon to one of her friends. Woman by the name of Mei Pang. She says I can't do anything with this guy. You take him so he was living with her with the Yoko's friend. May Pang on London was a night owl. He'd be up all night. Channel surfing on one of the shows that he always seemed to settle on it night. It was a show that was But it was hosted by a rather unique individual called Reverend Wright, who was an evangelist on television in New York and The way he would raise money would be tomo up with these, you know, Pitter patter phrases, One of which Woz On one night, he said. Let me tell you guys, it doesn't matter. It's whatever gets you through the night, John Lennon, who was an inveterate note taker. Wrote down that line, and it became the basis for this song. He's got Elton John playing on this song, and the two of them had a bet that if the song became a number one hit that Lenin would appear on stage with Elton John. And when it hit number one, Elton John reminded of them that and the two of them appeared on Thanksgiving Night 1974 at Madison Square Garden. They sang this song. They saying the Beatles song I saw her standing there and it was on that night after 18 month separation after living with Yoko Ono's best friend that He reunited with Yoko Ono, and the rest is their history. It is only number one hit that he saw when he was alive. Oh, cloudy and cool And you probably know that already Just by sticking your nose out the door high of 41 worth 34 right now. Clear Cold.
Looking back at the reaction to John Lennon's death 40 years ago today
"Today, the former Beatle John Lennon was killed in New York in an act of violence that shocked millions of his fans and then had been shot by a disturbed fan as he returned to his home the Dakota apartment building with his wife, Yoko Ono. Reporting live from the Dakota for BBC News at that time was Tom Brook 40. Years on Tom, who lives in New York, has been taking a very personal look back at his memories of that night and exploring Lenin's growing legacy today. Imagine where Snow heaven John Lennon's anthem Imagine is routinely performed by musicians and fans in Strawberry fields that section of New York Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles memory. Just across the street from the Dakota apartment building. 40 years ago, the Dakota was where John Lennon's life came to a sudden and horrific end. Millions of Americans first heard the news while watching Monday night football on the ABC network. Unspeakable tragedy. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City, shot twice in the back dead on arrival. It's half past six time for today. Good Good morning morning from from Brian Brian Redhead Redhead and and Libby Libby Purvis. Purvis. The The former former Beatle Beatle John John Lennon Lennon has has been been shot shot dead dead outside outside his his home home in in New New York York in in London. London. The The BBC's BBC's Today program was on the air, bringing first news of Lennon's death to British audiences. I had rushed to the Dakota found a public phone booth on West 72nd Street. Everyone around me. Lennon fans were crying soon I was on the air talking. Can you tell us exactly what happened. John Lennon was killed two hours ago. I got most of my information from talking to the literally hundreds of fans who are now congregating outside the Dakota building where they're going to hold on all night vigil, and it's a very weird scene indeed, because they're playing Lennon music. A lot of them are in tears and they're weeping on there, either stunned or they're hysterical. That seems like a long time ago and itwas over the years I've watched this journalist colleagues have covered the deaths of other pop culture figures, but none seem to bring forth the collective grief Witness with John Lennon. Celebrated New York photographer Bob Gruen was one of Lenin's friends. Well, the reaction to his death was worldwide. And it was such a shock. You know that he died, and then he died so violently. When all his life you've been talking about peace and trying to help others imagine peace. And here he was shot for that. But 40 years on the trauma has receded on John Lennon now has a new generation of fans some very young among them. 10 year old Yasha, Kigali's who I met in Strawberry Fields. I like the words and I like the music and I like the room and how it all goes together. I think that it's about something that is very important. Imagine novel the people today in these pandemic weary, conflict ridden times. Young musicians like Tom McKay, Hearn and Seattle really embrace Lenin's message. The fact that he emphasized love and peace and this idea of striving for something that doesn't currently exist. I still see that message is something that we need. Thinking about something that's beyond ourselves is just incredibly powerful. Not everything in relation to Lenin was wondrous. He could be mean and nasty, and he admitted that he abused women. None of this has really affected his legacy. If anything, his stature as a musician has grown since he died, it's still making an impact. As music journalist Jordan run talk explains. He has one of the truly great voices in rock history. And now you have artists like Liam Gallagher of Oasis and then modern bands like Tame Impala and cut worms who will get that very specific went and asked vocal sound because it's such a trademark. Hold someday join us. Today I live just four blocks from the Dakota. Sometimes I wander into strawberry fields. I think what I like most about Lenin was that he had an authentic voice. Not just musically. He did and said some stupid things, but he wasn't a fake something quite refreshing to ponder. In our age of endless posturing by politicians and celebrities. No problem.
Why Do We Hoard?
"Stephen question for you. okay. I want to know about. You're keen walk cabinet if it is still four or perhaps even overflowing and really. Why i'm asking is when you said that you keep buying box after box of kyun wa and never cooking any of it. I had to ask myself is even a hoarder so first of all i would say. I've used off on the walk purchase. Since you talk me through it since shame do about it. M i a hoarder so i would say that. I don't believe i am now or have ever been what is called the severe horror where you accumulate. So many books or newspapers or coup clocks can't make it to the front door right that you have to have a goat path through your possessions. I am certainly familiar with severe haunting. I mean i've encountered it several times in my life mostly in reporting but some personal life and i did grow up in a home where we saved anything. That could possibly be reused. But i think that had a lot more to do with being low income than with the factors that tend to drive severe hoarding. Well think this connection were. You're saying oh that was different because we didn't have any money so of course we had to hold on everything and then hoarding beyond any kind of level of reasonable thriftiness. I think they are connected. The phenomenon of hoarding. Which isn't terribly well. Understood is thought to be intuition. Or an impulse gone awry. And it's like eating fatty salty and sweet things. We evolved to seek out really high-calorie things with sodium. That worked well for many generations until we've had so much to eat that that same instinct is serving as and maybe warnings the same way that we haven't intuition to hold on to everything which is good until you get to the twentieth century. So that makes some sense to me. But i don't think that's really how actual severe hoarding happens from what i've read. It's more usually driven by some kind of traumatic life event. Where you have come to believe that things have evalu- beyond what other people would think would be a realistic value or that. Things are deeply irreplaceable. Or that things are so essential that you cannot go on another day unless you have collected all six of your local newspapers and added them to the pile so i would distinguish between what you're describing as a kind of canary. Need to conserve in reuse. And what seems to be pathology to keep things well beyond the volume at which they're useful. Well many pathologies stephen are normal processes taken to the extreme and so we could both be right. We could both be right and then. There's the question of whether hoarding only means physical things. Do you consider digital hoarding to be legit. You know some researchers actually used the phrase digital hoarding. And that's basically accumulating files and photos and so forth that you don't wanna part with and just like regular hoarding or analog hoarding. I guess definitely it's dysfunctional in other words. It's getting in the way but this incident. We have to hold onto things to not let go. Were all on a continuum of us to do that more than ours. And then at the extreme you have a hoarder. I think you're right. Also highlight that. There is an element of obsessive compulsive. Nece to hoarding. And from what i know and i'm not clinically trained as you know as a psychologist. I'm merely do research but my understanding of ocd. Is that the old part. The obsession part is a thought and then the compulsion part is behavior and very often. The thought is some distressing thought like ono. If i throw this away bad things are going to happen. And then the disordered behavior is that you shove everything in the closet. So i think there is a very uncomfortable. Obsessive thought that gets discharged or relieved a little bit. When you engage in this behavior and anyway. I don't want to say that hoardings not pathological because it obviously is. It's also we should say dangerous in that something like twenty five percent of all fire. Deaths involve hoarding. What that's terrible. I've seen one study. That found hoarding is responsible for a quarter of all what they call avoidable fire deaths. Now we should say fire deaths have fallen so so so so much right. We're talking about small numbers bite still proportionally. It makes sense because if you have a house full of newspapers books whatever pretty flammable and they make hard to get out and they make it hard for people to get in to rescue you during the pandemic. I've tried to get in more than a hundred steps a day. So i take a walk around the neighborhood and i have to say there. Is this one house. I look up to the fourth floor and you can't see much except for there's a fan in the window and then there's all these obstructions and then there's this like tiny sliver of light i think is the light on in the room and it only dawned on me gradually that this must be where hoarder lives and now. I'm worried that they're going to have a fire.
Immortals Gaming Club Are Getting Out of the Esports Team Space
"Start with a big story. Is you know it's impossible to ignore big numbers. And i'll just give you the headlines of three stories. But they're all the same story. Basically i just i like the three headlines because they all tell a little bit different side of it. The first year was immortals club raises additional twenty six million dollars. The second year was from bloomberg says meg. Whitman backed firm to way sale of overwatch team again talking about immortals gaming club and then the third immortals gaming club raises twenty. Six million led by ex quickly. Exact meg whitman. So if you put all these three together you sort of have all the information. You need witches with immortals calling her ex quickly exact. I mean could she is that that has got to be the most subtle you tag career up until on his business like her. Oh the ebay right yeah. That's better than leading quickly. Wow you're only as good as your last gig. You're only as good as your last exum be. Feels like something. Like as a as a term. Like i would order an like an exotic restaurant like well. I will start with the vegetable three way. Medley have the x. Qube for my main interest rate and goes just leaving puzzled. Sometimes i am puzzled. William by how your brain works that brain that it's such a funny term. So so here's here's what we know from the just the three headlines. Immortals gaming is raising a raised twenty six million dollars. It's being led by meg whitman. Who used to be equipped he also ebay footmen footnote and they're looking to sell their overwatch team. Believe it or not so. They've already got rid of their like previously. Got rid of their Call of duty league team And now the overwatch league team. They're looking to to get rid of it and i'll just read. I'm going to present you all the information guys. And then you can discuss. But it says immortals gaming intends to focus less on city specific teams and more on businesses related to online gaming such as gamers club a subscription service in latin america which connects video game players. The company said last week. It's selling a team playing and activists call of duty league to one hundred thieves And now so. They've sold off their call of duty league team now. They're saying they want to sell their los angeles valley and overwatch team. In the meantime the raid they raised twenty. Six million led by meg whitman. What do you guys make this news. There's a lot of. there's a lot to unpack. You're right the amount. They've raised be That they're divesting of assets sort of as part of this razor almost next to it which you don't usually hear about You guys think jeff. Lindsay william whoever wants to start here. What do you guys think of of mortals gaming club. And the way they're going. Let me go last. I have some some hot takes. Let me last go first. Then let's let's open with some hot takes you're all my take on. This is a little is a little more nuanced. But i think what's really interesting about this announce those two things to read into this. One is a mortals has just not done well as in east sports work right. They haven't won anything. They haven't really built a differentiated brand. They've been blown. Apart in the lifestyle category versus other orbs about the best thing they did back in late two thousand eighteen by gamers club right and make a move into south american marquette. This reads like a real strategic shift into you know gaming services and service provision right. Because you don't. You don't sell off both gated franchises and in particular. You don't sell off call of duty called duties actually starting to perform now like it's unusual to sell that asset unless you are If you're still committed to really making the team piece work so i think an underscore here as immortals you know is going to be getting out of the team space. I think a second thing i would add to this though in the morrison is the fact that they are announcing looking for a sale of overwatch without the buyer. List william razi to me because that is a direct that first of all signals a little bit of urgency right like we're trying to get rid of this asset gimme buyers right because like to be honest with you like like you don't need for an asset like that you know you don't you don't really need to do this sort of thing right like you don't know who the people are who are in the market for this The the second thing is. I think this is like a forcing mechanism with activision blizzard. It seems like they want out of that league and announcing they're going to sell is a really good piece of lever to communicate activision blizzard. Hey it's not working right and also to kind of tip their hat about the seriousness of their frustrations with with that business right now. So that's my read on. This is the announcement of sale is a little tactical. It's partly strategically. They want to divest. And it's partly. They're trying to communicate something to activision blizzard because they didn't announce again these. These are sort of deals. Where like you read about in favor of like. Oh i too could go by that. You know what i mean. There's a limited set of groups and these guys ono each other right like you.

People are calling out Cardi B for her crowded 28th birthday
"Rolled and Lady douche bag of the day. You Who's your D bag? Rtb ono Cardi B. Everybody loves cardio. You know, I hate this because you know me. I usually love Cardi B but I don't like the choices she's made this week. Oh, so she just celebrated her 28th birthday and birthday. So Cardi b, not 12. Turn down the opportunity to celebrate. Decided to invite a bunch of friends to Las Vegas. For a big birthday party. Um, slight problem. Well, well, problem. Big The term big birthday party scares me a little bit all living there in a pandemic. It's big. I don't know if you've seen pictures from this party. Look here. Yeah, I just opened it right up and tell me what you see. How about this? Yes, Bradley, you be the verbal picture teller. Can you tell our listeners who cannot look at the pictures of cardio bees? 28th birthday shindig in Las Vegas? You tell the people what you're seeing. Oh, was this like from last year? I mean, this is this year. This is her big birthday party in Las Vegas, Nevada. I see literally one person wearing him at like one person, and it's not full. Yeah, on crowd and a chin diaper. It's not actually a mask. You know what I mean? Like they're wearing it low slung. Well, this person isn't Oh, no, that person. You're right. Yes, there was another. There's another picture of somebody wearing it like a chin diaper. Auntie Chin diaper. That's it's a thing. Okay. Anyway, this is a full on party man. Nobody is social dis Nothing. Nobody's wearing a mask. Nothing. Does she literally later? Global pandemic is not going on She to my knowledge. I should double check and see if she's said anything Since these pictures. I want to know what people said on Twitter that card people that when you want to know what people's opinions are on Ah, a certain issue. Just go to Twitter. She she had this party and like, Like I said, like she crammed a bunch of people into a club in the Las Vegas Nevada area. And there was no masks. There was no social distancing there licking each other. By the way, her husband Offset who she filed for divorce from She's giving him a lap dance, okay? So me thinks that perhaps They're not. Getting a divorce. Maybe. I don't know. I don't know what they're up to. In any case. I just thought this sort of like brazen, especially given the fact Bradley do you remember early in the pandemic? Cardi B was like a voice of reason. She was like, guys. Everybody wear the mask. It's not that hard, like do this stuff because That's what we're doing. But I do know that when she filmed her her I don't know. We don't know for calling it lapper wop video. That's how old and out of that old and out of touch we are. She did you know, they kept everything on lock down like they Everybody was tested repeatedly, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. So then, looking at these pictures, I think to myself I bet that that's the excuse. I bet that they tested Everybody there. I mean, that could be because one thing we do know is that People with resource is in this moment have access toe tests that not everybody else does. And then I want everybody to sit for a second and think about how nice it would be to be able to, like, I don't know. Have a holiday with your whole family. But, yeah, it's so interesting. So I'm looking at some people are calling it out on Twitter, but it doesn't seem like there's any particular call out happening. I'd be curious what she has to say about it. I mean, and she very well may say nothing, which is also like her prerogative, right? Like She can just decide. You know, at any given time, like I don't really feel like addressing that at all. So she might just not say anything. And then again, she might. She might come out and give us every good reason why It was a okay for her to have a birthday party for herself. I do see a lot of headlines like of you. Google Cardi B Birthday party. You get a lot of Party B comes under fire from fans hosting huge party Cardi B. Slam for Pak birthday party fans or slamming Cardi B for showing off her huge something. Oh birthday party. And I do find it interesting that it looks like the photos that she published or just her. You know, not like the Oh, no. She actually posted that photo that I am Cardi B posted that photo that group photo one with all the people in there all she's on the floor. I don't understand why, but I mean Who knows? She did post a picture of the next day of her walking in a bikini, and she was like I'm walking down because I'm still drunk. So like she had a time like she definitely had a time. Just like that. I'm not comfortable with that. Not at all. You know, I don't have to be Yeah, No, everybody gets to make their choice. But then I think about all the people that were flying in and out for that and one of the person one of the persons one of the people who showed up with Kylie Jenner. We talked about this a little bit and then dirt alert. Update. But that woman Is Trying very hard to be friends of Cardi B O for sure, Right? Eso? Yes, because she she likes attention. They will have you know that she took her own private jet. To Las Vegas to go to this party, and then she and her friends got back on the jet, and they partied on her jet. Which, if that is not something that Sounds so foreign. I don't know what is Right. Like when was the last time you partied on your private jet? Bradley, zero of Ah, Any Who's he? What's he listen like? I just the thing that there's like cognitive dissonance because Party B was an early voice of You know, pay attention to the rules do the things you need to dio where a mask, she said all those things out loud, but then to see her acting. Exactly the opposite is a little bit frustrating, and I'm sure for fans And and non fans alike, Right? Yeah, I think it's you know. It's It's a different thing to say like I think it's you know, everybody is going to judge so that's totally fine. And when it comes to celebrities, we judge like nobody's business. Cove. It is a little different because everybody has like their own boundaries, And sometimes things are when you're in one place. The recommendations might be different than another. But this doesn't seem like shades of great. I mean, this just seems it's quote. It's so obvious. I just think about all the people like I don't care about the I should say I don't care. I am less concerned about the health of the people who are choosing to do this. And the people who have to work to make that party happened, like, think of all, and I do think this is I should be really careful because I don't like to get into political conversations. But she has made some political statements that would lead you to indicate she cares very much about people who are less fortunate and don't have resource is right. And I would just like to remind her that all of the people that work at the place that she threw her party probably don't have a choice to go to work. And put themselves at risk with a bunch of people not wearing masks ready. So I think that to me is a fair criticism. I think that's actually a really good point. Your right. I mean, the people who are they're working in the situation. And actually if you scroll down and look at some more of the pictures You will see guards, you know, like bodyguards that are there that are masked. You will see people who are clearly implicitly. And the problem is because I can hear some people saying Well, you know, the employees are massed in there, Baba. Did it really kind of doesn't matter when you're in a big room, right? And it looks like they're in like a big party room or something. It's the combination of masking and social distancing and hand washing. It's it's all you have to kind of aliens. All the prongs of the attack, If you like, I don't know. I feel like we've seen somewhere recently where a bunch of people were together. You know that sounds really familiar. I can't. Yeah, but yeah, but But but But we do hear these stories of people all being piled up together. And then they mask super spreader events, right? Even if you're outside and this looks like it's an indoor event, and they're all sort of Yeah. I don't know. Card E B. I'm disappointed in you. I'm sad about it because they usually love everything She does. But this was this was a miss for me. Party B.

Jennifer, eight Lee says there are couple of factors when the Japanese I came to United States a lot of actually ran Chinese restaurants because back in the nineteen ten nineteen twenty is Americans were not eating sushi. Sushi raw fish like no, go. So instead, you had Japanese Chinese restaurants because that was familiar with chop suey and John McCain and egg for young and in this mix of Japanese families opening Chinese restaurants. They began serving fortune cookies as a form of desert, so Japanese bakeries in California like Ben Kyoto, manufactured fortune cookies for decades.

"And you're kind of restarting if his perfect for what our discussion is today. So how are you beginning to set new goals for yourself and put yourself out there in the world while you already Mench? In your introduction to me this forthcoming book, which is part of the next phase of my life. And it allowed me to focus my energies somewhere else. So that when the end of my job came I thought, oh, while at least I'm in the early stages of putting together this next thing. So I think that that's something for everyone to keep in mind if there ever situation like this to have other projects you're dreaming about doing and take baby steps towards that project. And for me writing the book, I just told myself every day, you just have to write a few pages. You don't have to do all of this right now in one sitting just write a few pages, and I just took baby step. So that's something. I recommend everybody to have something. They're dreaming about doing and take baby steps toward it. You don't have to do everything at once. And you don't have to be perfect at it. And you don't have to have your whole life figured out. I don't have my whole life figured out. But I had this one project and now it's going to enter the world in the summer as a real book. So I'm very grateful for that. And then something else I did was I wasn't a free. To just reach out and call people. So I think that when we lose a job at can be very demoralizing, and we don't want to broadcast to the world Ono. I lost a job Ono. I'm a loser Ono unemployable, and it's understandable, not wanting to reach out to others. But I did the opposite. I called as many people as I could immediately and initially I framed as I want to help all of my people on my team land interviews, so I would call people up, and if they, you know, some people heard about what was happening and they called me. But I made I about my team, and then that evolved into being about me and taking care of myself does that make sense? Where were you? What were the biggest emotional hurdles, I guess to doing this? I mean, it sounds like one of them is, you know, overcoming that idea that you don't wanna project weakness, and I wonder how you overcame that idea. Yeah. I mean, I think that asking for help isn't actually a week thing. Because I think about anytime anyone's reached out to me for something. I actually enjoyed hoping them. I think humans liked to help each other. And I think for example, when you look at an advice column, for example, you're pretty or your show or anything that has advice. People love to immediately weigh in with their own advice. Somebody calls in and they say, oh, I don't know what to do. Because there's this one flirt at the office. Who's always flirting with me, and I don't like him so much. So what do I do about it? They love hearing your advice that you guys give but they also love wing in themselves with their own advice. So I think that reaching out and asking for help a lot of people actually feel appreciated in value when you do that. So giving them a chance to help you as in a way giving them a gift.
