"And the kind of more feminine ones just get two death and spat out. You say quite simply, there are a lot of people around the prime minister who didn't like the idea of a couple of women you're talking about, Carrie Symonds as was, and now, of course, Carrie Johnson, who used to work as a PR in the conservative operation and also referring to a LEGO Stratton. Yeah, there are a couple of women. A couple of people, excuse me, a lot of people around the prime minister who didn't like the idea of a couple of women having so much influence who still don't, which may explain the leak and you go on to say the fact that she's the only member of the team with the balls to take responsibility for this mess shows how wrong they are, aren't they all ashamed of themselves. So it's the operation around the prime minister that still does this to women in your view. I think so, yeah, I'd say so. I'd say it's the operation. I mean, it is just that culture. It's a very, very, very male culture. We will see what happens today, 24 hours is a long time in politics. It also comes at the same time as the government is asking again for there to be more restrictions and for people to follow that. But thank you very much for your insight Sarah. It's a pleasure, Emma. Sarah vine that she mentioned the press a number ten pressed Ed oldfield who is in that leaked video that was leaked to ITV in that interview and the possibility of him resigning. He has not resigned, and we contacted him for his response, but did not receive one. You have been sending us your responses, though, an anonymous one here, Sarah vine absolutely spot on. Why on earth should allegro Stratton take the flat? But Joe says, do not make a victim out of allegro Stratton. We saw her rehearsing lies. She was prepared to tell on behalf of the government. This woman was once a journalist. She was laughing. For Sarah vines come out and make up excuses for her is an insulting as the video for woman's eye to run with that is worse..

See, this is where, like If we were in the studio Mark, would you know because with the drum roll, but If all you young folks out there, let me give you a little history about this next matchup here. It's probably one of the it's a rivalry. You may not have seen many of these matchups. Between these two teams. But you can ask any Oakland Raider L A Raider Las Vegas Raiders, Maybe not the Las Vegas Raiders because they don't know as much. But, uh, Pittsburgh Steelers Oakland Raiders LOS Vegas Raiders Raiders. This has been a classic matchup, two of the most well respected teams. In the A F. C. You will not find, uh, teams with the history that the rate is in the Steelers have and I have to go as far as saying that the owners of the Steelers, the owners of the Raiders, Trail Blazers when it came to the advancement of women and advancement of African Americans. These two teams no other teams in the NFL has done more for minorities than the Pittsburgh Steelers and Las Vegas Raiders. And so that's why you know this. This game is going to be, uh, special, a lot of reasons, but let's talk about it. Let's talk about the Big Sunday matchup September 19th Sunday. One o'clock on the East Coast. Start time at Heinz Field and Mr Picks, we would be at the game, of course. And give you the history. Uh, starting with the Pittsburgh Steel is they went up the Buffalo. No one expected them to beat the buffalo bills. They beat them. 23 16, just like last year. It seems like this team started out slow and first half and finished strong in the second half. Go to Monday night. Uh, first time in Allegiance stadium. First time people were allowed in that beautiful stadium there, which I can't wait to go to Um, Monday night, The Las Vegas Raiders was on center stage got the attention of everybody. They beat the Baltimore Ravens and over time But 33 27 Now these two storied franchises, meet up because this this this is the immaculate reception. They are what Seven. Maybe. Thank you. Thank you. Hey, eh, For all you Raiders fairs that is flying into Pittsburgh International. Please stop by and get you a picture. What? Mr Franco, and he's down there getting you the immaculate reception. I lost that shoe. He saw you what he did to you, so get you a pitch they got. They got that same picture of Franco Harris in Oakland, and he's dropping the ball. The ball actually touched the ground. Oh, so so you come through the always Raiders got a different perspective. That That ball hit the ground, man. If you watch if you can just go watch some of the stories on on NFL films Google that go to YouTube. It is man that game right there. It's crazy. Hey, if if you are anything, any type of Raiders friend or pitch birds still affair with these two teams outside of Pittsburgh in Dallas, with these two teams match up people flat from across the country all over the world because this matchup it's like a reveal Here. They won't man. Look here. The Raiders will always and I guarantee you conversations. In the stadium come Sunday will be that was not a kid. Do you think we're gonna see Frank Oldfield? Franco probably shoot what is at home? He can't show up. But Franco shows on Federated. The black crowd that's going to be there is going to boot. They do not work. That's like seeing a ghost. In fact, usually hey, you do know you gotta go here. But let's get to this game here times it would To it. What do we 30 40 years later? Almost. But, uh, big time game here big time game for both teams because they both in the FC. They're not in the same division but then the same conference. And wins matter Both of my undefeated Um, I'll tell you what, and I looked at the game. You know, from a perspective and I'm going to make a sensible pick here because I just think the Pittsburgh still is defense. You know how they shut down Josh Allen. Who is the much better quarterback Derek Carr. And I think people would agree with me but Derek carpet of 435 yards last week so that Pittsburgh defense is going to be busy, huh? I got the Steelers winning this game, and I think it's going to be kind of close. Well right now. I mean, j. I mean, uh, Vegas Gap Pittsburgh to win by six points with the over and under at 47. I'm gonna I'm gonna go with you. I Pittsburgh. I'm gonna ride with pitching, but not just because of my team. I'm gonna rock with the pitch. Birds still is made to cover this, but I don't believe this is going to be a high scoring game like everybody thought so, either, or, Yeah, um Raiders was last week. This is not going to be those type of numbers. It's not going to even be closed. I don't even think the Raiders. Really going to show up personally, I don't think the rate is going to show up, you know? Look, I mean, they're going to the defense is going to shut them down is going to be a lot of interceptions throw by car. And I'm like, Look, I mean, I wouldn't go that far because I got to say the game. The rate the rate is probably I don't even want to say and I think Raider fans would agree with me. You don't want to say that was Monday night was the best game that you've played in a while. It actually is, though, but I mean, this season is still young..

"And I think that really represents yourself with them within our gameplay. No, for sure. That cohesiveness shine through this past season. You guys placing top three in at least four of the 5 majors. Like I said earlier, you won the second major outside of playoffs. I mean, really, even including plastic top two is nothing to sneer at. Would you rank this a successful season or at least a season to where you mentioned earlier you could kind of build a positive kind of atmosphere around even more positive than you had already had before. Yeah, so I definitely think we've massively exceeded our expectations for the season. You know, if we're looking about, I think we'll look back on it with immense pride. You know, we secured a second seat at champs. And then we normally that we went on to play second that champ. So we lived up to that seed that the weird secured over the regular season. I think obviously we climbed the championship. And we didn't actually place outside the top three from stage two, two champs. We were and I think that's the most that's one of the hardest things in cod, especially with the level of teams now the talent level and the level of competition. I think consistency is a huge hurdle that you have to try and cross. And I think the level of consistency we've showed, we've shown that we are deserving about top two placement ultimately. I actually think we could have probably done better than we actually did, because the monitoring which we were eliminated from the last few majors and champs, I think, you know, stage three, we lost a game 5 series to phase. Stage four, we were reverse swept by Dallas in the elimination finals. Stage 5, obviously everyone's familiar with the heartbreaking fournel reverse sweep. Against Minnesota rocker, which was heartbreaking wrenched our souls from our bodies for that evening and then the resilience that we showed to bounce back for champs and make this incredible run still all the way to the final one. We were in a position to win in the final. You know, there were a few maps that were just completely down to the wire, the couple kills or the famous 0.1 second diffuse. If they went our way, that series could have been 5 two to us instead of what you saw, which was, you know, phase, triumphing, 5 three, but, you know, I have no qualms with the result, obviously, we look back and we'll be disappointed a little bit. We couldn't take our opportunities, but phase were the best team across the entire game. There's no question about that. They dominated from start to finish, obviously they had their little blip of stage 5 major apart from that they were in every finals. And the only one they lost was to ask at stage two, right? When we were kind of the team that came out of nowhere and there was 0.7% of people all like about 7 people outside thousands thought that we didn't even win when the rackets or win the tournament. So that was a crazy run on big for our confidence, obviously, and we managed to carry that into the rest of the season. No, just that was there for that blip and major 5. That was more than a blip. I cried when insane. I gotta ask, you know, like you mentioned the tough losses. I mean, after you guys kind of go through a tough laws, I mean, what do you tell the players?.

Maybe you're listening to this. You forgot you too young you from another country. The sun city super bowl. What sensiti was. Obviously it was a new poll. Cypher in the eighties was nobody came out protest for a apartheid or just once a lot coming up and sun city was based basically in north west province but then was an independent state that you could do. Things like have concerts with international artists. Go gambling and go watch. Tv shows you could go extravaganza funny because there is one of my very memories from my childhood was what we would actually do the family. We would go through to another resort in the area. We wouldn't stay in sunday. We never stayed subsidy. But what you do so you can stay somewhere in rustenburg and then you drive through too sensitive for the day right and are just remember walking. Positive think i'm sure it was amex. Yes and ferry route posters very route posters on the walls. Terribly what you could go watch in amex and so. When i'm actually became a thing i was like.

Say that 'cause 'cause you know he listened to the podcast so he's harder stories but that felt that was a great perspective on thankful for been been humble humble saga says i think even when you negotiate you know in the business world. It's always helped me. Because i thought i'm not going to be intimidated by somebody threat to not do this order like when i used to work with walmart with the duck costco tho- well we've proven you can be joyous with nothing. Yeah so but in the real world they use all this material thing leverage right. And if you're if you're not bent by that but since we weren't like since there's not like it is now we're constantly watching what you don't have on tv kids wise tv and there's commercial we don't have any of that so we didn't know we thought our lives were great and without you guys.

Because all we've been told his family despite our mistakes and being there for each other if we live we live to the lord and if we die without of the lord to whether we live or die we belong to the lord for this reason christ died in return to live so that he might be the lord of both the dead in the living.

Despite all the difficulties and material possessions and even ones that dab before they should have and ones that have miraculously stayed alive than we expected zachariah and when an used to send us a birthday card the all the nephews every year to have a little five dollar bill or something and that made such a difference because we never had any money and so i mean..

COVID-19 & the Medical Supply Crisis
"Marzan. Juliette. It's so great to have you on the dispatch. Thanks for being with me. We're glad to be here. Thank you so much. So you know in the piece that you guys wrote for the AP, which is just it's phenomenal and very detailed and seven months of reporting and so much work went into that Juliet I was hoping you could. help us understand a little bit of the process of your reporting. How did you begin and and how did you guys go about this massive subject I need. It really was one step at a time I. Mean it started when Martha we're looking around the country and we were seeing Cova. Spreading across the states and we were seeing reports of nurses, wearing garbage bags, and this advice to make your own mask or where abandon a- and we knew. That doctors and nurses didn't have what they need, but we didn't know why exactly and so we decided. Knowing that China had shut down because of Wuhan obviously manufacturing was shut down as well. We decided to look into import data to see. What's actually coming into the country? Because we knew that the majority of our medical supplies are made overseas and we it was stunning to realize that in March there were only a few shipments of medical grade ninety, five masks when we are seeing this demand, just go through the roof and we are seeing nurses and doctors pleading for protection. And so we really went from there and tried to figure out what the issues were far back they went, and so we really went administration by Administration to see who was waving the flag who was talking about supply chains who was warning about might happen in the case of pandemic, and so it brought back to h one n one but also we reviewed the Bulla after action report. You know we went through and tried to understand you know who was talking about this, and what we found was that supply chains are fragile but everyone knows that their fragile. was information that that people had and in order to fortify them, it just takes a lot and in our story. We spoke with former HHS secretary who said when the snake is not nipping at your ankles your focused on other things. And so for a long time, the US was focused on other things and then all of a sudden we found ourselves in a situation where people are dying and mass and the focus has now been shifted back onto this problem. Right I mean I was. You know how vivid it was. You all started our film was Sandy Oldfield. So you know broken supply chains have real life consequences and You know her story is one that will stick with anyone who watches it Martha talked to me about Sandy and that group of nurses that you guys met. Okay I, will start by saying. If I ever was sick. It would be that central Oldfield, who I would want at my side she sounded like an amazing nurse. Everybody Knew Sandy every lab x Ray the respiratory therapist. She always had a smile for them or a kind word for them. So these nurses in Fresno. Um. We're all exposed to Kobe. Positive. Haitian issue would tell us that she was going to go to work with no fear. That she knew that God was with turn he was going to protect her dozens were exposed. It was hard. Our morale was was pretty low We still weren't getting the PCP. On our on our unit, it was tough to feel safe. I. Even had made a commenter. I said just go to work shit like we have to that. We've already I mean, you don't just not show up you know and we're sick three were hospitalized and Sandra. Oldfield died from coded. She told me the dark is GonNa put me on a ventilator. I said we're going to be right here when you open your eyes. told her I loved her and. Got Was. The last spoke to her. None of them had adequate p. p.. They didn't have a ninety five masks because this patient was symptomatic and the hospital was conserving those and ninety five masks people on a Kobe. Ward. And they were demanding change at the time that they were being exposed on. Very. Scary situation for them very upsetting they you know they they were wondering whether it's really worth it to be a nurse. You know there's doctors or nurses who go into medicine and they wanted to like. Humanitarian Work in war zones, and then there's doctors and nurses who go into medicine and they WANNA provide care in their community and they're not looking for a big risky venture and. And yet KOGO pandemic has put them on the frontlines of some of the most dangerous situations. Medical experts ever have to get into.

And he wanted again on Monday with the Tampa. Bay Lightning. Any certainly appears to be having one hell of a time celebrating down in Tampa congratulations on Stanley Cup number two, and thanks for joining us on spitting chocolates. Patty Maroon. Extra I appreciate it. Thanks Boys Arrived what an intro it's been a crazy couple few days as you can tell through my voice but. I still can't believe it. I it. It's nice to see you shared on first off. I thought there was no chance. You weren't to keep that going for the pod going to take it off, take it off of start. It off right but. You're speaking to your body. I heard you were having a sumo wrestling way offs with Ovechkin in the fucking. What's happened there? Who who had their? known everyone had me and and. I mean it was it was honestly what tonight that was to like. Doing way off with Ob and you know said there. Now of other boys I, mean it was not man like the whole the whole time. So it's good to hang out with those guys and actually have a couple of drinks get their personalities. Just who would ever thought I mean yourself. Acoustic. Saint Louis and to bring a cop to your hometown, and then you're you're not resigned which I trip them the other day I said, what we signed this guy fucking signed for nine hundred Tampa right like Jesus Christ but I digress. But then you go over to Tampa you've new John Cooper fifteen years ago whenever it was like just take me through your thought process on everything that's happened. If you really not even had the time to sit back and think about how special this has been. I mean I've had time but as you guys know the last. Few Days I've been. Pardons grank it. I've been bamboo go myself a couple days. So no I mean I had time. I mean when Kook got the call and he? When he called me, I got the call from it was you know he was like, Hey, what are you thinking about coming to Tampa let me talk to joy on Jimmy. Call Conversation with some other teams in the work but until then I wanted to go to a team that I wanted to win on and. And I thought Tampa. What they went through last year was I thought I can help their locker room I'm not going to help them on the scoresheet every single night but I know I can help them stick out from their teammates they can play a little bigger you know like Kuch can play bigger Tyler Johnson Stammer, Polat they can all play bigger and feel comfortable they have no No someone that can protect them that knew that a group That one at all and and I know I had history with winning Kooks. So was just icing on the cake. So I think he needed is good luck charm to win that cup for. You're too modest about the scoresheet thing because you're picking off sauce in the final game a mid air in the neutral zone. How good that one feel That felt good. How? Those are some Sekhmet Sarah, you look like, Kucherov on every single fucking bad pass that goes around him. He's like he's like the video game. If you just put it in his vicinity, he's going to find a way to get it on a stick in order to make a play. That guy is ridiculous. Kucherov in when he's in warm ups. Going like sixty percent and then that's a game. percent. Sean areas give me a shout out to about my stick. So. I can't complain about that. Now I mean fuck I don't know I black out there they go ahead my hands up in their bitching at the bench is you're telling me to get off and I was. Still made the places like shut up I know how long should be here. This long enough best partners I thought Volkov. It his first game and I was going nuts. Now's like who scored that I go to the pilots Coleman I was like Oh shit maybe I should have changed. Unreal that we've talked to other guys about the day to day aspect of the bubble and obviously you guys one in a great view guys. But how challenging did a gift? Not necessarily you but just the daily day to day grind of every day the same thing over and over again. I'm in it was a grind for sure. Are I think the problem is like? I'm so used to. An old but I'm used to leave an anthony every single year obviously the year before stayed in St Louis but I always used to being away from family. And I know some guys were asking me questions you know what it's like and it's GonNa hit home for you when you're two weeks and then a month and in a bubble that. You're a month and a half man and your family you can't see your kids and. And then when you get into. Yourself closer to the Stanley. Cup or the conference finals here trying to get your family Americans can't come in, but the Canadians can. Kinda sucks, and but we came together as a group during that whole time Toronto. We had Polka Ball. We had We had tennis courts. We had a pool outdoor We had like five restaurants. We had the beam oldfield where you can go over and play Spike Ball. Soccer football play catch. You know there's kind of a bar outside there's a restaurant open there at five o'clock. So we had we had thanks to do and trial. Then when you got the advertisement was kind of. The we call it the prison yard, which it wasn't, but it was a cement concrete where you can tell why guys in Edmonton were struggling probably more than the guys who? got the free ice caps. So I heard. Horton's. Best the. A free double doubles in the front. And So yeah, I mean it was. It was tough at times for sure when you're sitting there grinding your way, but we're fortunate to have a good team. So we never felt like we were out of it and I know you guys touched on a bit like when the teams down three one, three two or you kinda thrown in the towel just to get home like we didn't have that feeling we had a feeling. We're like we were wedding every single game and we're never done in this series resides in Boston down beside besides Dallas and so we always knew we'd find a way so. We're going home mentality attitude we came together. You know obviously. You guys know hotels you you. You have a few drinks, but it's Kind of hanging out and you really don't have anyone Cannellino beside yourself and your body is at your part of the team. So you kind of have to make make ends meet and I thought we did a good job with that.

Right away so they sent out a request for proposal to electrons manufacturers to bid on on the job of course everyone figured the winner would be the Juggernaut of business machines. Miss Snow White herself. Ibm Doc Baker was the VP of electrons division over at GE and he knew his boss quarter didn't want to move into IBM's territory. He new computers were out of bounds when he got wind of Bank of America. RFP Will Baker saw an opening he didn't want to miss he approached Barney. Oldfield the manager of GE's Microwave Laboratory in Palo Alto which was the nearest facility to Sri and he made oldfield a proposition. Here's John Joseph and associate professor of strategy at the University of California Irvine. You know I think here was was somebody who was a very successful aggressive entrepreneur type at GE and was a savvy manager and businessman and saw this as a huge opportunity to grow the division Baker along with Oldfield was able to convince as their boss coordinator that this would be a special purpose process control system not a general purpose computer not something that would upset IBM. Ge was certainly not going into the computer business. The reason I think Coordin- eventually capitulated was that that he put a condition on them going after it and said just this contract. We don't want to enter the business machine market or generally we we want enter specifically this particular bid and you can go after it and so he said go coroner let them go ahead with the RFP feeling confident that they wouldn't win the contract anyway. Let him blow off some creative steam and then old fueled hand-delivered their proposal Rosal to the Bank San Francisco office and waited then much to everyone's surprise IBM pulled Out of the race and even more unexpectedly. GE's proposal rose to the top Bank of America. Awarded them the contract not any of the other technology manufacturers the underdogs got it the underdogs. Ge one the multi million dollar their contract on April Ninth Nineteen fifty-six be of as board of directors accepted GE's proposal Baker signed and a thirty one million dollar contract without running it by his boss Corner. This impossible project was becoming Lille. All Oldfield Oldfield needed now was a place to build the armies and Oh yeah an actual computer
The Science Of Cricket Fights
"Let's with the ten gallon hat dine. How about you heard y'all males with big heads are better fighters nails with big heads think they're better fighters true the Chinese? I needed been betting on cricket fight since assume dynasty as far back as eight hundred years ago they claim that bigger headed males were better fighters. It wasn't until recently that scientists put that idea to the test in their experiments they tested may oldfield crickets and competitions where they paired males with similar body mass and size but different heads sizes they found that males with larger heads one more fights than males with smaller heads. Why do they think that happened because? Rose crickets with bigger heads have bigger weapons weapons what kinds of weapons insects mouth parts go maxine and manuals maximally are used for swallowing and manuals for grasping crushing or cutting food the size casualties mouth parts depends on head size they seek out from the front of their head and make great pinscher like weapons for grappling so what's the fighting for males live in small Berle's. I like to think of them as bachelor pads. Only instead of paying rent they have defend off males who may be interested in taking their territory the mail that gets the bachelor pad gets a chance to attract females. He does this by singing. I see always thinking about getting the girls goals. Aren't you dying no. I'm thinking about hats hats. I think I need one of those hats with horns.
