"His mom. What if it never clears. He said to his dad. But if we never see the sun again he said to his sister they all tried to reassure him and to repeat the wisdom of old squirrel but none of it helped until his father suggested he go visit his friend. Babs the rabbit. He had been friends with babs as long as he could remember. And the two of them had a lot in common. They were both quiet. They both enjoyed wrestling and like him. Babs sometimes got nervous if anyone could relate to how he felt it would surely be her so he agreed. His sister accompanied him and the two of them scuttled along the forest floor looking this way and that observing the dense fog around them he was glad his sister new which way to go because he could barely recognize the path without seeing the tall trees stumps and rocks. That were familiar to him. As they continued side-by-side oakley did something he didn't normally do. He stopped for a minute and reached out for his sister's pau in the middle of a forest that now felt so unfamiliar to him. Her warm pau reminded him that this was all his home. They sat together for a moment smiled at one another and then continued on their way finally as they approached the thicket where babs in her family lived oakley was amazed to see his friend out by patch of nettles. All by herself oakley's sister nudged him towards his friends with her paw then oakley watched his sister slip into the mist knowing she'd returned for him later babs oakley whispered turning back toward his friend. It's daytime shouldn't you get in the thicket the ask this because the forest creatures all avoided the open ground during the day for fear of hawks overhead the only ventured into the open undercover of darkness. The fog said babs with a big smile. She then pointed her nose in all directions as if showing oakley the fog for the first time. The hawks can't see us. My mom says it's the gift of the fog. Then dabs diddy little rabbit dance and oakley couldn't help but giggle oakley it was amazed and delighted this revelation. They could be out in the open during the day was amazing. Him oakley took a breath in and looked around. He spotted the faint yellow blotch of the sun behind the grey fog. The trees all around him were just enormous trunks. They seem to disappear as they climbed upwards into the mist beside him babs normally very timid. When it came to any exploration now seemed full of courage and adventure she smiled wide-eyed and then beckoned him to follow her. Oakley stood there for a moment in the thicket not quite ready to move you then recalled. What old squirrel said earlier. I invite you to see our foggy day as a mark of delightful magic and mystery. He thought of what babs his mom had told her about. The gift of the fog oakley took a last look around swallowing his nerves. He followed his friend. She led them to align of ferns oakley followed her to the line of ferns and they hopped up onto an old white pine stump to watch a woodpecker work on an ancient maple tree. The two friends leaned into each other and lost themselves watching the busy woodpecker searching for bugs. It was fascinating and oakley. Couldn't remember ever being able to watch a woodpecker for that long. They then gathered some berries from the forest edge and line them up on a mossy rock to marvel at their color. The fog seemed to make the colors brighter in more magical by the time oakley sister came. They had wrestled together in. A patch of plantations tasted the tips of new birch saplings next to a glacial rock and made funny faces in a small puddle formed in a tulip tree leaf. It had been a wonderful time and the to friends made a plan to meet up again the next day. Do you think it will be foggy again tomorrow. Oakley asked his sister hopefully his sister shrugged and repeated what she had heard. Old squirrel say none of us can truly know oakley heard his sister's words and instead of feeling the worry and nervousness. He had felt the day before he found himself. Shrugging as well this feeling of adventure stayed with oakley for the rest of the day. You noticed a bright red newt sitting on a dark stick and he thought it looked like a flower. He saw forum in the fog. That looked a little like a tall crow with its wings spread and as they got closer. The form turned into a short apple tree with two big apples and then as they got even closer oakley could see that it was his mother and father sitting on a rock. This revelation made him laugh with surprise. The fog makes everything magical. He said between giggles oakley's parents then heard about his time with babs and we're delighted to learn that he had had such a nice time that night. Little oakley snuggled into his warm sweet-smelling bed of dry leaves and flower petals inside he loved. The mix of flowers smells and nutty. Eight corn smells and the woolly smells of his family d. Closed his eyes to take it all in you thought about the day with fabs and then exploring his family and wondered for a moment. What the next day would bring. Would it be foggy. would it be clear. Truly there was no way to know just as old squirrel said but just.

"Had said earlier that day about the fog. Old squirrel was the storyteller of oakley's corner of the forest. He had been in that corner longer than anyone and had seen so many remarkable things. Old squirrel had seen a bird fly overhead that had all the colors of the rainbow. He had seen a clear sky suddenly fill with clouds that then dropped rain and then ice and then snow all in one day he had seen moose and fox's and even an old woman looking for mushrooms old squirrel had stories for everything he had seen and all the animals in that corner of the forest looked forward to hearing them. But this was different. The story old squirrel had told earlier. That day was a little bit about things he had seen long ago but mostly it was a story about something that the entire forest community was experiencing right in that moment the fog. The fog had descended two days before. And if i okay was excited like the rest of the forest animals. Though it was the first time oakley had experienced a fog the older animals knew all about it. It's good luck. Bellowed bartholomew the bullfrog who liked to sit inside a hollow hemlock log and make his voice echo keeps the forest nice in wet big file like this means a hot afternoon chirped a little nut hatch overhead. Enjoy it while you can. It will be gone by mid day. Said oakley's older sister who had experienced only two fogs in her life but considered herself an expert. The sun turns the fog in puddles. But after the second and then the third day of non-stop fog. The forest animals began to get nervous instead of thinning. The fog only seemed to get thicker. It was a gray woolly blanket covering the forest making it. Hard to scamper without stumbling. None of them had ever known a fog to last so long and to be so thick. What could it mean. This was when old squirrel had stepped up onto the hemlock stump and waited for the others to gather. He was clearly going to tell the forest community. A story lark flew above the fog using her bird call to let everyone know to gather around the hemlock stump the animals came slower than usual squinting as they made their way through the mist but they all came they all wanted to hear from old squirrel. The each found a spot around the stump and settled in to hear his story. I do recall a time long ago. When a great fog came here to our forest it lasted for a number of days. Maybe three or four. I must have been a year old. Perhaps so i was old enough to know. It was strange but still young enough to think that i could do something about it. I ran up and down this tree as well as the tallest tree at the time. Bartholomew's hemlock looking for some sense of when it was going to end and then if it was going to end a number of animals were worried some said change was right around the corner others said it could be permanent few worried the cloud said fallen to earth while others thought it was an underground pond longing touch the sky. Some animals were scared. Some were angry. Some were even sad but all of them had one thing in common. They didn't know what was going to happen. And they didn't like not knowing. The uncertainty was as heavy and thick as this fog. Old squirrel paused and looked around at his audience. He animals were listening intently. Peering up at him through the dim nece. You smiled slightly and then continued. Luckily there was a turtle named penelope who used to pass through that corner of the forest. She was not at all scared or angry or sad or the least bit worried about the fog. Everything changes that is the only thing you can be certain of so. Keep your eyes open friends and notice what today's fog has to bring you because whatever happens today. Tomorrow is sure to change to that end. Dear friends said old squirrel. I invite you to see our foggy day as a mark of delightful magic and mystery. Will there be a fog tomorrow. None of us can truly no will the fog disappear in the morning by midday today. Will it last another two days. None of us can truly know so. Let us go about our day and see what the fog can bring us. This is the story that oakley had heard that day and now he couldn't sleep is mom and dad explained. That old squirrel was trying to reassure the forest folk.

Mnt the gold cup. We knew that this was not going to be the same roster. That went out competed oakley one that nation's league tournament gregg berhalter has been saying it for a long time. We're gonna have to separate groups. There might be a little bit of overlap and likely that overlap is gonna come from mls players because it is the summer and you've got transfer window open you've got guys going into preseason camps trying to earn their way like for instance. He said brian reynolds not here because joe's marino doesn't generally play younger players so they want brian reynolds to beat at roma from the jump with the new manager to make sure he has a chance to get into the team otherwise he's going to be working From behind a couple other names in that scenario where cameron carter vickers gotta figure his cup situation. Eric palmer brown to figure out his cup situation. And greg said admitted our centre-back cool is a little bit light.

Kristin Stultz Pressley On Dorothy Fields And Her Impact On Broadway Musical Theater
"Well hello kristin welcome back to the podcast while it is so good to be back with you. Thank you for having me. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching your podcast as it has grown. You've done some really exciting things and talk to some incredible people and so it's been a real joy to watch it will relations by the way. Thank you for being a listener as well as a guest but yeah it's good to have you back and so what was it. That drew you to dorothy fields. And why did you want to write a book about her well. To be honest. I started studying. Dorthy fields a master's candidate at the university of kentucky and one of the bugaboos about graduate school. They expect you to have a research project and the real catch is. It needs to be something. No one else's ever researched before so it can be pretty tricky because If it's something that no one's ever researched before how are you going to know about it right. And how are you gonna find research about exactly so you're really starting from scratch. So i went to graduate school bride. Probably twenty three twenty four year old new. I wanted to study. Musical theater was in the theater. Department had no idea what that specific topic would be that. I would research for the next two years. Actually i was planning on doing a phd. So would have been the next four years. I knew it would be related to musicals. I knew what related to the golden age of musical. So i was thinking cole. Porter irving berlin oscar hammerstein. I loved lyrics and Each of these wrote lyrics so that was something that was already drawn to. But every time i talk with my advisor she was We know everything about quarter. Everything's been done about oscar hammerstein. There've been books written about and by irving berlin says she would just keep shooting down and rightfully so. Because i needed what was going to be my contribution right. What was what was going to be my something that i could add to the academy so to speak. And so as a person of faith. I literally prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed and one day in her office. It was as if i saw this blinding vision across my eyes and it just was the name dorothy fields and i knew nothing about dorothy fields. Except that i recognized her name from the show card from sweet charity. Nineteen sixty six charity And i had seen that show card. So much of course had the cd collection. So i am the the cd case very much like the show card. And so i just blurted out. What about dorothy fields adviser stopped. And said i don't know anything about dorothy fields and so that was two thousand three. I went home and it was the very early days of googling there. There was not much on the internet yet. But there was enough that i could see my goodness. This woman wrote the way you look tonight. This woman wrote. I'm in the mood for love. This woman wrote on sunny side of the street. This woman was the brain power behind any. Get your gun. She came up with the idea to do a show about any oakley. And so i went back to my adviser at a different class to that night and told her. What do you think about this. This is what i found out. She says let's do it so it's been almost two decades that i've been at this but i continued that work not only for masters but also for my doctoral dissertation which i ended up doing my phd at the university of georgia. But i took dorothy with me. When i went from lexington to athens. Dorothy came along for the ride. You basically were looking at her life from you. Know more academic educational standpoint. So what makes this different from those dissertations. That's actually a great question you know. It's funny because when people ask me what the book is about or have asked me over the past twenty years what. I was researching. And i would mention dorothy fields. And everybody's i don't know her but then you mentioned song titles you say hey big spender. She wrote that or pick yourself up. She wrote that or on the sunnyside of the street. She wrote that everybody gets that same. Like a ha. I know her but they didn't know that they knew her in my master's thesis. That's one question that i asked was why her name. Not as well known as porter and all of those men not only were they collaborators of hers they were very well loved colleagues who esteemed. Dorothy is one of them. And there's a couple of suggestions for that one is. She was never part of a team that that lasted for a long time. So by that. I mean rodgers and hammerstein that that is an iconic dua were Rodgers and hart even or irving berlin wrote music and lyrics cole porter music and lyrics but dorthy fields for it with eighteen different composers over a five decade long career so there was never easy to pinpoint her as. Oh well. that's i mean the closest would be jimmy. Mccue who was first collaborator of fields in. Bq song where it just it just there. That never happened with her. It never became a catchphrase. Another suggestion is because she was very self effacing. You know if she was asking an interview. Oh we'll tell us about this experience. Riding with arthur schwartz or whatever she would immediately turn it around and said well let me tell you how great. It is work with arthur. You know she would always shine. The spotlight on her collaborator And so that's another reason. Why perhaps she didn't seek the spotlight and it wasn't until later in her career. She became concerned with legacy and she hired a publicist at and that happened in the late. Nineteen fifties as. I think her her brother died unexpectedly. Her husband died unexpectedly her her dear friends and collaborators beginning to die and i think she realized at that point. Hey maybe i am concerned with being. And i do need help to accomplish that.

'Black grief and white grievance' at New Yorks New Museum
"Now. The new museum in new york this week open grief and grievance art and morning in america and exhibition originally conceived for the museum by the hugely influential curator of queen ways or before. He died in two thousand nine hundred nineteen grief and grievance features thirty seven artists to address the theme of morning commemoration and loss in response to the racist violence experienced by african american communities the title the museum says refers to quote the intertwined phenomena of black grief and a politically orchestrated white grievance against each structures and defines contemporary american social and political life. Curatorial advisory group has worked together to realize an interpreter. Basil's vision maximiliano gio knee of the new museum. The artist glenn ligon in ways. As regular curatorial collaborator mark. Nash and owe me beckwith scenic creator of the museum of contemporary art in chicago. He's just been appointed chief curator of the guggenheim museum in new york editor in the americas. Helen stolis spoke to beckwith about the exhibition. I wondered what's it been like bringing the show to its final stages making sure that oakley's incredible vision has been realized. What was your thinking through the process to make sure you've got this kind of final end stage oak. We have a brial mind. There were always so many things that he was thinking about and working on and he can have an idea a decade ago that manifests itself into a show much much later and so his ability to kind of hold and juggle things Intellectually and mentally that then get realized later was uncanny honestly the more that i read essays of his from about ten years ago i realized the core of some of this thinking was already there especially the core of ideas in grief ingredient. So all that is to say that this actually is unlikely to be. Oh quiz show believe it or not. They'll be more coming more things to watch and see. The man's ambitions were amazing and so lars they will extend extend far past life But in terms of grief and grievance started as a lecture series for harvard and oh a curator. He thinks through art a curious interesting. That i'm still speaking about him in present tense and so he thinks through ours and he started then to take. These ideas That he'd been mulling over these ideas around. What really are the kind of core conditions of american race relations. Where did they begin. What catalyzed them and what are the ramifications of that core This sense of black loss and a sense of white grievance let really in his mind got catalyzed around the civil war. What are those ramifications for the american polity right now our process as curatorial advisors which is what we've been calling ourselves has really been about trying to round out oh quiz vision where it was necessary. Okay already had a rather. Set schematic for the show. He had core objects that he was interested. In working with a painting of awesome blogs painting by daniel johnson another awesome. Blah's painting by jack whitten and a painting regime michel basquiat. He was really interested in these three objects as the ways to anchor away of of both thinking through reactions to Black and justice but also aesthetic forms that moved between abstraction and figuration between forms that are legible and gestures that deal. Mostly i think with the monochromatic. So these being the kind of catalyzing ideas for the show. were great signposts for us so then began to work with those themes and ideas for the rest of the checklist.

Brain Tracking: The Future of Brain Health with Paul Sorbo, Director of Sales at Wavi Medical
"Welcome back to the outcomes racket. Today i have the privilege of hosting paul sorbo. He is the director of sales at wabi medical. Where they're helping the world to think better they're doing brain performance assessments with a very unique approach and in this interview. I have an extraordinary conversation with him. Learning more about how they're making a difference in brain health. And so with that intro. I am so privileged to have you here on the podcast paul. Thanks for joining me. Thank you chris. It's great to be here. Yeah so you know. We previously had another member of your team. Aaron from wabe. If you guys haven't had a chance to listen to that podcast go to the website. Go to wabe mad. And you'll see our rate chat with erin but today we've got paul on the podcast and he's gonna die of a bit deeper into the topic of brain health and what we're doing to do more and to do better within that field so before we do that though paul you know why. Don't you go ahead and tell us what exactly inspires your work in healthcare watts. Broad question to me I think for me it was always. I had a fascination with the human body whether it was from the performance aspect. i. I'm an ex bodybuilder. And so i always had this huge fascination trying to manipulate the human body to be the best at it could all the way through my undergrad. And we'll getting in about school. I had a huge fascination at the genome and and a genetic and solving things like duchenne muscular dystrophy with genomic other being crisper cast nine gene regulation. And you know all of a sudden. I started thinking about this and you know genetics. You're just familiar with upi genetics and and protonix. And when you really get into that you know you start looking at medicine as a whole and realizing that we are not controlling what we can. And that i want to continue to strive to make people the best version of themselves that they can be and continue to drive the education behind that specifically in now with lobby kind of the brain sector. Yeah that's pretty cool man so you did like weight training professionally or what. What's the story there. Never professionally I had a whole bunch of friends that were professional bodybuilders. Still to this day. You know on a fascination with muscle for lack of a better term probably unhealthy fascination for being I like to call bodybuilders the first bile hackers you know when when tides just now coming out and getting into mainstream medical community us bodybuilders. Been using uptight for twenty years and not in a nearly regulated fashion. Obviously very underground bro science for lack of a better term. But yeah i mean i. I'm five foot nine. I was all the way up to about two hundred fifty four pounds. It less than ten percent body fat which was not healthy by the way could punish shoes And realize that you know. I think that's a good topic of conversation about health. Though you know people. I think genuinely believe that external appearance can actually reflect internal health and that is so far from true. 'cause x i looked extremely healthy right. I ate what i thought right things. I had low body fat. I had astronomical amount of muscle mass for my frame but internally when i started looking at my labs my panels my lipid panels cluster all levels my ratios. My inner cellular calcium levels all of a sudden. I'm like close. I am the furthest thing from health. Yeah and you know. It's a good call and we've got a measure to understand where we're at and that's a lot of what you guys are doing with wabi around the brain so talked a little bit about the business and some insights about how you guys are helping. Health care leaders do their job around brain assessment. Yeah i think the key there to what he's done let me start by saying why doesn't do anything do what we do. Is we make information significantly more accessible so measuring the brain has been really underdone. Because it's never been a accessible be. It's never been affordable. Those are the two things that david oakley data joffe really set out to change e. g. and evoked potentials or. Erp have been around for sixty seventy years. The problem with both of those erp specifically was really only used in brain death situations to measure. You know long hospital procedure and prostate expensive and b. e. g. is really people are familiar with the g. from epilepsy studies. And these really terrible torture base you know. Eeg say league caps. You're just awful and they're expensive and they're not quick right so when you talk about measuring the brain you know. Are you going to send a client or patient to go. Get a yearly. Mri no are you gonna go send a client to get a yearly specs or anything else out there eeg. No you're not gonna do it because it's going to cost them. I don't know that many people that have five to ten thousand dollars our way every year. Nobody i mean right very hit. I know people that do it yearly. And i'm like that's excessive right but when you really look at that the problem is that by not doing that on a regular basis as we don't have a whole bunch of data on the parade you know it's not like we're able to just go in with a stethoscope and listen to the way than our heart is a. We haven't been able to do that with the brain and so really. The only clinton which measurement is happening is when. There's already a problem whether there's already issues of cognitive decline whether there's already ti stroke whether there's already behavioral sheeps and so we don't really know these baseline normative were supposed to be or house amongst progressing their cognitive science progressing as they age. And that's really. The foundation of lavi is providing a simple fast and affordable assessment that we establish a baseline and then compare subsequent. Scans to see how someone is progressing
Exotic Bases: The Radix Point
"So the first thing we're going to talk about is the rate x point Known in decimal notation as the decimal point and its use of course represent non integer numbers. Okay like i was. Just you know interjecting eminent ago. How we have are ones tens hundreds places or so on base ten or are going left of gore's right right so but what if we're going to the right of the decimal point then we have our tenth. Tenths places are hundredths places. Notice the emphasis on the t h because were going with fractions this time. So it's like say. I were in binary base two than we would have. Our one half place are one quarter place. One eighth sixteenth. Six thirty four sixty four and so on so what would point one one being based too. I mean the ability to go through that. So let's say that we had the number point one one in based too so we have passed the rate x point. We have a one set first. One is in the one halves place in the one house plays in binary so we have that pretty much any base has especially inter inter basis has a ones place. So that is because it's whatever your rate x number is the homebase kind so it's that to the power of zero and that's just one and then pass the rate x point we start going to the negative ones play like the negative. I power negative second power and so on so because a just a quick review three to the negative to for example is one divided by three to the power of two or three squared switches. One nine exactly. And so in this case if we're talking about the number point one one in binary than we have so we have won the first place past the brakes. Point is one half and then we have the next part. Which is the one quarters place so what we can say is that this is the same thing as three quarters or point seven five as we would write it in decimal because it's one house was one quarter right and there's one half times one plus one quarter times one right exactly and so point one zero one in the same vein you would be one half plus zero tied one quarter which is zero plus one eighth which is five eighths so but so the development of these numerals is actually surprisingly late talked about how he do iraq numerals. It'd been around in the early of verse millennium. But now but it wasn't until the i did until the tenth century a d by hudson oakley dc a mathematician and polymath. Who wrote a book called earth earth. Medics of luke. Dc original title. Keep tub of sue his al hindi in every translation. I've found is called the arithmetic of. But i notice that there's this hindi in there and i haven't had time to research. The original arabic of something tells me that there's something there's represented. Hindu arabic numerals inherited the title. That hasn't been translated. And as i think it's just weird how long it took and i think part of the reason why is commerce isn't always you know you go to the store. You don't buy ten eggs by dozen eggs right right. So i mean i don't know why do you think it took so long from the time that like arabic numerals when introduced to talk about decimal points Instead of the announced breaking numbers into small numbers you just use smaller units of measurement. And it's like you know you know that twelve inches make a feet. You're not as likely to think about how three inches is a quarter of a foot which is point two five which is to hold decimal points so it gets very abstract. I suppose

Controversial statues toppled in cities around the world
"Since the death of George Floyd Confederate monuments are coming down in states across America some are removed quietly in the dead of night others are ripped from their pedestals in broad daylight and it's not just here in the US either protesters overseas are toppling monuments to slavers and colonizers as the protests over police racism and brutality rumbled across European cities some activists targeted that own country's colonial history in Belgium demonstrates a spray painted a statue of king Leopold the second Wallenstein U. K. statue of seventeenth century slave trader Edward Colston was toppled and thrown into a rhythm can the push for justice move forward without first looking back maybe the best way to reckon with our racist history is to dump it in the river we're going across America and abroad today as part of our one A. across America project it's a partnership with six public radio stations in various parts of the country we're joined now by someone who once said a great nation does not hide its history it faces its flaws and it corrects them which Landrieu is the former mayor of New Orleans and author of the book in the shadow of statues a white southerner confronts history welcome back to the show image thank you so much exactly also joining us is only a haci nada she's a writer and organizer of black lives matter U. K. black lives matter U. K. has compiled a list of sixty statues that it wants removed because they celebrate slavery Ali I joins us from London welcome hi Larry thanks for having me Mitch you brought down a number of Confederate monuments while your mail it may or you did that legally I wonder what do you make of protests in various cities that are taking down statues and monuments illegally well it again do it up myself and I wasn't the first one to talk about it it's been a long history of people who were leaders in New Orleans who tried to take those monuments down they all legal processes for doing it and there are the process used to do on it a peaceful protest you know the important thing is is that people now are beginning to understand how insidious those monuments are the ones that was specifically put up to celebrate those individuals who've spent their lives protecting slavery and so that's what the Confederate monuments are in the United States of America I can't speak to the ones because I don't know enough about them in other parts of the in the south in the United States of America there are three thousand monuments that will place up with the state and direct purpose of revering and honoring individuals who fought to split the United States and have all the calls of preserving slavery and that's just on the civil war or the confederacy was on the wrong side of that war they were on the wrong side of history and the last thing that we should be doing is honoring what's called a lost cause which is meant that somehow of the confederacy was a noble cause when in fact it was not in these monuments will put in places of public places yeah man on on public on public land and with and will put up with the specific purpose of Riviera the person I general Robert E. Lee Jefferson Davis PGT Beauregard and their whole host of others whose mission it was was to preserve slavery yeah and I felt very strongly being the mayor of a multi cultural city that is historically always prided itself on its diversity as an essential part of who we are as people to have those monuments in public places that was sending messages to people of color that they still want welcome here after all those years and so I couldn't be more thrilled that they're coming down you know we can get we can get kind of caught up in how they coming down and whether we should have long conversations a short conversations but essentially we're all finished with us if you just take the monument down and you don't get to the root of why they were put up in the first place or the ideas that they were trying to perpetuate that manifest themselves in institutions Holly and police and etcetera etcetera then we would have made some progress but not nearly as much progress as we should have this is clearly a hot topic of date debate in the US Stephen wrote on Facebook this is needed and long overdue Tommy wrote on Facebook I assume sarcastically by all means a race history get rid of it that will fix everything and then sailed sailor apes tweeted I say pull them down melt them and resign them to the garbage bin where the losers of history tip Oakley wind up yeah what do you make of this issue of whether a statue comes down legally or illegally doesn't matter in the end to a to a movement I think in my personal opinion whether it comes down legally or illegally is not the conversation we should be hopping Bob why is it being taken down and debated in the first place I think if we get into the legality and illegality over we then can get into a very polarizing conversation of good and bad it wouldn't really that's not what any of this is trying to do is really trying to have a conversation around what to be glorified in these countries and what do we put public money towards glorifying because these statues these plaques all of these things that glorify the slave owners these colonizers all paid for out of the tax pay is pocket and given that we've had two years of austerity I think there are a couple other ways that we might be able to spend this money instead of glorifying

Explorers & Contenders: Annie Oakley
"Annie. Oakley was born phoebe and Moses on August thirteenth eighteen sixty in Dark County Ohio when Anne was sits. Her Father Jacob died from pneumonia and his mother. Susan wise soon remarried but her second husband died suddenly two with eight children and very little income. Anne's family was sent to the county's poor farm. These institutions predated federal safety nets like Medicare and social security residents often dealt with miserable living conditions while battling the cultural stigma of needing help and he was placed with local families where she would work in exchange for room and board.

How Do I Prune an Overgrown Hydrangea?
"Says it's about that time of year to Prune my hydro Angius and how far back should I TRIM? It's it's a huge plant and hasn't been touched in about ten years. Oh Wow you know typically when we talk about pruning how far back to cut you. Always kind of use the one third role but hydrangea so a little tricky It depends on when they bloom. if they bloom in late summer Then they are really blooming on new growth from the spring. So you can prune them now up. Either you can em as far back as you want because all the new growth is going to give you the blooms And this is GonNa be the types Like Annabel Limelight some of those varieties But if it's one that Bloomsburg say midsummer blue one Or maybe something like an Oakley Hydrangea Then it's going to boom on old wood which was actually started to grow last fall so the time to prune them is in an after they bloom in In late summer early fall so you know so. They have time to put out new growth. That is going to actually give booms for the next year so You know I know this sounds confusing and that's probably why Fred probably gets. This gets question multiple times over the years I wanted to Prune. Hydrangea I think the best thing to do. Would if you did it if you have Internet access if you just put an question when to Prune Hydrangea And there's a lot of good resources there that kind of help you divide the ones that like to be pruned in in the fall river versus the ones. I'd like to be pruned this time of year. Well not only that. But it's spread has has Mentioned at least I've heard him say that. There are so many varieties. Now of HYDRANGEA. It's hard to tell because now they have ones that bloom pretty much all summer. Yeah and you know that's why I think If you did a search like this Fact as I'm as I'm talking I have just put that same question and and I found a site Actually coming from Gardner Supply Company which I love their products. And is and the question when to Prune hydrangea and And this person has got pictures and a chart and he tells switch drainage is To Prune and late winter like now and which ones to to prune after they build them in the summer so I think that's It's got some great pictures here too. She kinda help you sort it out

"Fighting one change and think that it's the end of the day you know Charles Oakley's very emotional about these things in the words that he is using are inflammatory and they're the wrong words the use and there's no reason to use those words add to somehow try to drag Spike Lee into some sort of racial fight over this is just absolutely absurd and but people are going to give it legs first for whatever reason the you know in spike Lee's gonna go on ESPN and star scream and yell and then they're going to give him the platform do this I I to me I was wondering yesterday like if you're if you're Jim Dolan and your your basketball team is on ESPN you know do you yank the basketball team off of yes well he can't do anything like this anymore because then he's going to be looked at he's got a for once is bad is you when you ask a question before I thought I sat there and I thought about like what is Jim Dolan do now right now Jim Dolan the last time with the Charles Oakley thing when he went on with the binder of insults not the best move but then also you know if you sit back you let these guys her all these things toward you if you respond at all I don't think that anybody's going to think that that's a good thing but you also don't want to sit back and just be defenseless too so it's a very very difficult situation to be in the thing that they responded with where I. spike Lee's claims are laughable here's a picture of the entrance there's a picture of the two of them shaking hands I thought that was sort of ridiculous to sell I don't know I the more I talk through this I'm thinking that staying quiet is probably the best thing because I think that most reasonable people when they hear a guy like Charles Oakley talk about lynchings and talk about plantations they don't agree with that that's that that's what I was why did Adam silver take the team away from Donald sterling all because of the racist optimist on tape saying that V. stiviano right and and I think every NBA basketball owner if we're allowed to call on that is is frightened as all hell to be labeled in this regard because I could see what happens and that's why you know these these words that Charles Oakley are using are not doing anybody any good I don't think he's trying to get him out via the same thing yeah that because in ancient he and he talked to body reference sterling and some of his comments to yeah exactly it's like he's always enjoying to do that and he's trying to paint Jim Dolan is a racist you know I don't know ask owned Houston as Steve mills and Scott Perry as John story Johnson asked Larry Johnson asked what troll Sprewell ask any of the former players that do get treated extremely well by the Nixon the guard asked the players to play for the Knicks who get extra treated very very well by the garden and by Jim don't want to get paid get paid a lot of money to play a game in front of a fan base that just once a winner and now you got to deal with this nonsense I you're probably right he probably shouldn't say anything because it's so ludicrous to even respond to this is your C. yeah but it it just it it bears the fact that we need to I thank talk openly about what they are accusing him of and how ridiculous it is are we got some more Yankee tickets right now for you it's a special Thursday box office.

And and if you and are able to recognize the pattern of how you've got to that right answer and apply that moving forward and if the answer was nay you can do the same you say. Oh okay. I shouldn't think things that way. I should add a little more solve the next time. Okay got it. The more information the more feedback about how your meeting things in the world. All the feedback matters so failure is just a different type of feedback even when per earlier part of this conversation even when decisions are made empowered by algorithms that are empowered by data and context. Sometimes it's still a crap shoot but it's a crapshoot worth playing because you don't know the end result until you try it. I know that's hard. That's putting yourself out on the line like that all day everyday is really challenging. And it's and it's exhausting but I simply don't know how else anybody has ever created anything. Yeah a well as someone who crates and make stuff for living. It's been a career of you know about ninety nine out of one hundred things you do get they die and the one thing it's changed and you don't know those ninety nine are going to be until told the ninety nine exists have to keep putting it out and putting it out and putting it out when we're talking about artistic war we're talking about. I mean for decisions and we're talking about creative work and brand work you have to get hands paper or your medium of choice in and get ideas out of your head and out the door but you also have to keep in mind. Does this failure hurt me? Does this failure hurt me and multiple people. And what's the level of that hurt because at a certain point? So you're clear a certain point you wanna Kinda back and say wait a second. Let me actually rethink making this thing. But not all the time is rare in fact that the risk that you take going to be the worst thing to ever happen who is going to cause lasting damage to a thing mostly. We're talking about the things you make for a living and we can't make those things for a living without being willing to are eager to deal with with a pencil. Failure of US putting work in the world. Is there point where you know that? It's just a setback or time to bail. I think you know what did you think when you're laying in bed at night and two o'clock in the morning here staring feeling you might not ever say it out loud and your gut no and I think the trick these. I think because I haven't quite figured this out myself win. Is it your gut speaking or is it your fear speaking? And you know the difference. It's hard sometimes with the difference for Yourself. That love that is speaking. Or is it your fear speaking at the forefront of change in our business which ones do you think will have the biggest impact coming up here in the next year or two? I love the fact that what we've talked about in this conversation about being cross-disciplinary diverse people working together to solve a problem. You know I've I've been shouting. This is the rooftops for years and years and years and years and years but as as people from outside the industry came in people who were in start up environments and then came over its advertising or people who were out of technology schools art schools and I would give them my whole spiel on the break down silos. They look at me and they'd say what are you talking about? That's a thing. How do you people even get any work done? That made me feel so good. It made me realize okay. We've got this amazing fresh talent. Fresh blood fresh brains coming into this industry and they are going to continue to look at us. The people have been around for a while and say why. Are you doing it like that? Do it like this. And if we're smart we will continue to listen and I am so thrilled at as to what that that means for us as an industry for our clients and for consumers people get the message out in the world. The Clayton to me. The strength of your message is not. You should have diverse groups because it's the right thing to do or even it's the smart thing to do. I think the message is if you don't. You're not going to succeed. You're not going to exist in a few years. That's right did the right thing to do. And but it it beyond a Karma level business. And if you don't eat your finished this is twenty twenty. We know we've known the ferber longtime and eventually if you haven't gotten this deep down in your DNA like everything else should be you. You can't effective. What are the changes you see happening that excite you the most and which ones concern you the most concern and this also may sound strange a technologist? I built this work in this industry because I love storytelling. I remember being a kid and I can tell you the three TV spots that aired between eighty five and ninety two. That made me think. Oh wait a second. I want to at least be in the environment where that work as me. But that's amazing to me and it's GonNa be there so I've always kept strong brand strong creative solid storytelling at the core of what I personally do and care about on the other. Hand data driven dynamic creative performance. Marketing data numbers driven. Work is critical. I am scared when I have conversations with other people and other various places in this industry who think that it has to be one or the other. The power is telling strong stories with a foot in Brillian creative and a foot in data driven insights performance. Marketing combining those two is. What excites me? Separating those two is what frightens me but the more people separated the more. I think there's an opportunity for the shop. Not that we're doing right. Yeah any patterns. You see happening that that you think you hoping excite you future. It excites me when when fresh blood comes in a lot of that fresh blood is not coming in a lot of the fresh love going to other places because they look at our industry and they think for life fit in there. Do I belong there. Yes you will fit in yes you do fit in and you can have an impact directly on work sooner in your career. Then perhaps you can a large platform certainly as a creative as a developer. You can you can get your hands dirty. On real worked. Real human beings will see really quickly and it makes me really happy when I see and convince people from the outside to come on in the water's fine. I find it so enjoyable on exciting. Yeah that's that is pretty cool and thought about that. Thank you so much. This has been such a pleasure..

now is it is movie back this is our adoptive home we were just babies coming out here I think I was sworn anyone when I got drafted I she was sworn in we don't have any kids yet we're just enough life on our own and you know again like I said we we came from Oakland adopted us and not just what we do on a quarter you know what I use is done in our business but just there's just a culture in an energy and a real this about about Oakland that we resonated was really really really well I think you know everywhere we go again I've heard some you know those those connections people you know just wanted I know a little bit about you and your support you and and and and celebrate you only want to do that for for the city this the support us you know for the last eleven years where we raise our kids so far and I think it's been it's been an amazing journey just coming from North Carolina to out here and just you know I understand what opens really about like this a big job and for us you know would have it any other way and so for us to have any opportunity to give back to the to the city that has given us so much in Missoula I usually want to add something sure I mean I think for me it's where I became a mom we have three children now and it's really where ice once I became a mom I started to notice you kind of tend to turn a blind eye to the things that are going on right in front of your face until you become a parent and then your world opens up and you're like all my goodness and I think for me wanting to to start our foundation in Oakland was because that's where I noticed the need first hand and you know once our oldest got to the age to go to school that's when I started becoming aware of the void that was around her and that you know the stats at the time were one and six children across the country were going to school hungry and I was like that could be the person she sitting next to in class that's ridiculous how does how do we changes and so it's really it's the place that I forget or Jack London square apartment lean I just realized the void and as a parent you don't want to see any child in that situation and so I just you know the seed was planted and I needed to make an impact and make change and we don't have to I don't want my daughter growing up and having children and having to think about that I don't want anybody having to to deal with and it's something that again so solvable and so why not start there why not start now thank you know lastly either that is just the the people that we met at our again a community doing that it did the team and just the the the sense of responsibility accountability for you know taking care to community there's so many just powerful special people some in this room always talk about Reggie Jackson from the IDC who's my favorite person just in terms of like just when you thought there you says the passion about a delicious said that the need is there and how that this you can go about attacking it and and just to see success stories that come out of her program and programs a light like it's it's really easy to get to get motivated and excited about what how special the bay area is a bit open a special yeah I I agree I mean if you're both you're putting in Oakland on the map in two days time in terms of highlighting the issues that we really need to be talking about in a lot of the issues you their their national we're not immune to homelessness or the crisis that re experiencing with displacement gentrification and it seems that the impact in the communities of color we really have a strong community here of people who are digging in and taking care of our communities and doing great work so talking about some of the great people of that you met let's talk about you know the people that you want to partner with us some other folks that you are continuing to partner with organizations that deserve to tell their stories I think is like you said the power and and what he learned play is and how we want to represent it is it is the power to collectors who because I guess it was not something we we want to get a program they want to get into a policy change with our investment and organizations that are doing amazing work and kind of what you spoke on is it's about awareness right like there's there's an ability for us to be able to have the the megaphone out and and I've you know talk about the groups that we talked about before and go through the whole decision about us you know going on and all the receipts but is literally just saying there are our ability to raise awareness on the issues that are at hand the people that are doing amazing work and where money can read and and time and resources can make a true answer mail no changes is is what we're about and so now think about our our larger than I mentioned and and working with the local parks and rec group in and their talent cancer they have you know over the course of the summer and we have almost a thousand kids that are at a loss of and they're all part of the town camps and and like be able to support them and and provide scholarships to have kids just be able to have access to eat learn play programming to the others found camps over the summer which are really you know trying times for kids at that you know developmental age when you're not in school in your you know parents are shown in the figure out exactly how you know how to keep the kids engaged and to keep them safe over the course of the summer months those opportunities are going to continue to influence every kid's chance to be successful and so I think that process of identifying an invading out those those organizations is what the power the thing that we have and then in that working in an ability to be in the community and kind of hear from the people that are in touch with within these are so that'll be a L. L. on going conversation and and an understanding and really proud of what we've done in less than a year and so that gives me and then issue in our group a whole nother level of excitement about was the confidential tax bell liking it your children and and you wanting them to grow up in a different world and I think we all want that for the next generation but like what would be a more equal and you know just world what would that look like for you if you were finding out the future not just for your own kids but all kids out there I just feel like everybody should be afforded the same chances equal opportunity you know the chance to grade education save spaces to play you know and healthy nutritious meals it's the fundamental things and it sounds so silly when you see them out loud but it's not there's people that don't have any of that and so for me it would look like every child no matter what we ensure that they have access to all of those things so that we're not theirs it's twenty twenty there's no reason to leave it to lock for people when there is a world that we're able to change.

people that are in touch with with the needs are so that'll be Alan going conversation and and understanding and really proud of what we've done in less than a year and so that gives me an annihilation our our group a whole nother level of excitement about was to come for sure Tyson bell liking it your children and and you wanting them to grow up in a different world and I think we all want that for the next generation but like what would be a more equal and you know just world what would that look like for you if you were planning out the future not just for your own kids but all kids out there I just feel like everybody should be afforded the same chances equal opportunity you know the chance to grade education save space is the play you know and healthy nutritious meals is fundamental things and it sounds so silly when you say them out loud but it's not there's people that don't have any of that and so for me it would look like every child no matter what we ensure that they have access to all of those things so that we're not theirs it's twenty twenty there's no reason to leave it to lock for people when there's a world that were able to change.

"The popularity of Charles Oakley what he means to the fan base and the respect he has from you know players in such around the league Aquila Charles Oakley and the Knicks have not made amends and anyway that's kind of sad when you think about him you have to find a way to fix that I shouldn't have happened in the first place and it was obviously regrettable all the way around but you have to find a way to fix that that's one of your great alarms you know for the next day you have to find a way to fix that my opinion and I wonder when we have Mr Oakley on about ten minutes to sell when asked him did he have any influence in seven all right yes did he tell no way in the world you should put on and the I think about uniform they'll be interesting interesting spot that's coming up a little bit but it out to stand all in New York at all up next on a phallus about him what's up guys listen I got a plan for you for the next you know you got seven first round picks from now the twenty twenty three keep building through the draft keep developing young players and you signed outsider read the which I think is a good sign every other signing was two years salaries and who's who's gonna be infringing to use it because it's not a Max contract the Greek freak so you see what happens because I got Beyonce you as an expense I did not want an injury Kevin Durant coming off that injury and chi reserving outside lead big sign Cleveland on a team that let's face the lebron carry that team what has he done the side to be injured well he's right that he could not be a number one player that's fair do not disparage Irving from that championship team if you'll live in game seven be fair Adam he was already once in that final yeah yeah he was he was but without a broad data when they don't think anybody will I forward the best player on that team but don't minimize the impact of calorie that's fine you're preaching patience the question I have Kim for a franchise that has not exactly at all at home runs in the draft are they going to be able to hit those home runs in a draft and it is going to be able to develop players like you need to like the San Antonio Spurs have like the Golden State Warriors half that's the only way to mix again good now only one the only way and and you know lighting a candle and hope in hopes that you get the next Diane that doesn't work either by the way because that's the luck of the draw thing without lottery especially now with the lottery changing as well the idea of just bottoming out tanking doesn't work the way one state because the odds of dramatically changed and I am not came on about you I can't do this two years from now we honest I can't do it I I I don't think you're gonna have to hold up well enough I can't like they think myself up that an ex got it it's got it's got would drive you insane but for the Connecticut David what's up there hi first I got a good quote I've been a season ticket holder since nineteen ninety two yes hello I'm listening while listening go I got a question for you yes Charles Oakley which you're gonna appreciate about eight years ago I was at the boss you in Vegas and Charles Oakley's playing no limit hold'em minimum twenty thousand all along and he raised with the four six or food and flopped a full house god knows how much money was in that pot all day this is David god bless him so we want a big hand on Vegas that's my kind of guy I mean I don't know Charles is going to want to get into what he's doing out Las Vegas Kim I don't I don't want to discuss some of the bad blackjack beats I've had over the years all I will leave that question out of the playbook for Charles in about twenty minutes you know here's the question I have going back to the car before about the New York Knicks at some point you have to learn how to win and that is partly the.
