Remembering Owen Harries
"Not said I on the show Owen Harries Australia is a large continent to defend. It exists in a region characterized by a great deal of turbulence. As by far the most populous, powerful and wealthy country in the southwest Pacific it properly assumes responsibility stability in some of the smaller countries of the region which have serious problems. To meet these commitments. Australia spins under two percent of its Gross National Product on defense. It has an Army of only twenty five thousand men. In these circumstances for it to engage in serious military campaigns beyond its region, as well and to do so preemptively, and when it's not directly threatened is to leave itself open to the charge of being a cheap hawk, which is a dangerous and the responsible thing to be. Punching above one wait maybe a source of pride, but it is also hazardous and a form of activity best avoided. That was from the ABC boy elections in two thousand and three and the author Owen Harries who died last week at age ninety now. Harry's was a conservative Wilson Academic, a Cold war-era turn staunch of the war on terror led by the Bush, and how governments
Fresh update on "owen" discussed on Between The Lines
"He was a leading critic of not just Iraq, invasion and the war on terror, which we've just been discussing, but also NATO. Expansion the interventions in in Bosnia and Kosovo big issue in the mid. Nineties Any containment China, frank. It's always hard to know these things, but how do you? How would things be different? If US policy makers on both left and wrought if they had followed the cautious restrained realism of our and Harry's Frank Kusuma. It's hard to. It's hard to really know what would have happened under those different circumstances, I think some of those judgments were. Wrong in some for example NATO expansion I participated in those arguments. I was in favor of NATO expansion unlike unlike Owen. and I think actually in light of what happened late. You know people blame the rise of Putin and concurrent Russian nationalism on. That I'm not so sure. I think the people who live closest to Russia meaning the ball to the polls that Georgians Ukrainians. Had A in a way of more realistic understanding of the long-term. Imperialism that was the trajectory of Russian foreign policy, and in a way I think they saw more clearly the fact that. You know NATO expansion in a way was just an excuse for a Russian. Resentment or a means of legitimating kind of revanchist attitude that was then fully expressed. In later years by by Putin on the other hand, you know some of those. Cautions I think were were well taken. I think American power is not been deployed well outside of Europe in general I think in the Middle East. We really do not understand that region and. I think there was A. Broader reason to be careful in in in those circumstances I we'll back to the end of history in today's. What's been called the Democratic recision. He's Harry's again in two thousand and three at the time Fukuyama article appeared his own mentor and Teacher. Professor Alan Blum of university. Expressed the view that fascism could will make a comeback. Others stressed the durable force of nationalism. More recently I was interested to hear the Australian. Historian Geoffrey Blaney, tentatively, Predict Revival of socialism in the next few decades that was Allen Harry's from two thousand and three a Maga fully love. What do you think is most likely to define the coming epoch? Well, it's hard to say and I remember that Owen would always caution the young scholars at the lowy institute to resist the tyranny of the president, and just as he felt, terrorism was I've done in the aftermath of nine eleven. He would probably be cautioning us now not to over analyze for example, the affected the coronavirus pandemic but I guess I would say partly in homage to Owen that the. The long term trend since the end of the cold, or has been the rise of nationalism and the return of geopolitics, and we did think that a liberal international order had settled on the earth, but every day the liberal international order looks less liberal unless international. This lady and the contest between Nation States has resumed, and cooperation is declining now they're account availing factors and in a way, International Corporation has never been more important but I, but I think that the big trend that I've seen the last well since the end.
Boston minority communities hit hardest by evictions, according to report
"Communities of color are most affected by evictions in Boston, and the pandemic threatens to make things much worse. Visi Czart Cohen reports. The report prepared by M. I T look back at three years of data and found that 70% of market rate evictions happen in communities of color in Boston. Lisa Owens, executive director of City Life, Vita, or Banana says legal protections enacted during the pandemic for people unable to make rent or mortgage payments end on August 18th.

Designed to protect vulnerable communities and tenants, and that will be filed on Tuesday. Art Cohen W B Z Boston's news radio, Black and Brown

Coronavirus and golf: How the professional tours are affected
"Let me ask you this about the tour and like all this stuff is going because you talked about the guys being on the golf course and. I really don't blame these news. We try to play golf because if they look if I stay away from people doing nothing else then I might as well get at here but like how do you think the tour is going to be affected by all of this there are affected a bunch of one? They still haven't even postponed or canceled events. That scheduled may twenty first the ink at colonial. And you know one of the events that that they're talking about trying to move since they moved. Somebody majors the US Open now where it got moved. Its date is open. So Jack Nicklaus tournament the memorial wants to move out of its slot into where the US Open was but it's still scheduled to go on in. That's the last week of. May which doesn't seem possible to that's going to happen. They hope and help or like the idea that the US Open is saying. Now we're not going to be here. Is somebody else's like that all right? Yeah or tournament like the open championship which isn't scheduled till July is like we out all next year in. May there like an eighty news like Nah. And that's the thing Bo you know man. I'm I'm optimistic. I try to see the silver lining. I tried to look at the good in everything but realistically to think we're going to be playing in June is just it. I don't see it happening. I just don't see us being ready to play golf in six weeks when there are still places that are on complete lockdown. I don't understand how they think that they're going to pull this off now even in my opinion first week of August which is when the PGA championship is supposed to happen. Even that seems to me as a more hopeful than realistic thing. Not only because we don't know where we be as a country as far as where this pandemic virus is by then. We have no idea whether it is going to be a phase two or phase three and the fact that the PGA championship is still scheduled to be held in San Francisco. Yes I if xactly Gulf has never been the first to do anything so to think that golf would be the first sport to come back. Golf is a sport that is more image conscious than the NFL. That I know that sounds crazy but think about this. You are not going to hear the golf as Elliot Nothing. Have you ever heard of a Golfer have you heard of a Golfer getting a DUI other than Tiger Woods? 'cause it was tiger so he's bigger than just the Gulf News but have you ever heard of a PGA tour pro given the Dui. Like you think it ain't happened right exe- so the thought of Gov being the Guinea pig like man. We'll bring all our guys back. Because you know golf will be the easiest thing for social distancing. Yes inside the ropes. It's easy for social distancing Hauer player's GonNa get tournament how litter power. They literally getting from the airplane to hotel. Where we're staying. Where are they going to empty? Who who changing the sheets right and then when you get to the gut like getting a rental car you can rent a car from somebody. I'll be working rental counter and then when you get to the golf course you just pulling out in the Congo and straight to the driving rains. You're going into the locker room who's WHO's opening locker room door. Who's working in you? Go to the bathroom cleaning up. Who changed sort of paper or you won't eat. Who's WHO's GonNa Food? Who's bring the food who stole in the trash out like? Who's doing the dishes like those? And that's not you ain't got to the courts yet now. You get course okay. We're GONNA put this on TV. Well who's filming? You've got to have a camera do. Okay Yeah we got a camera guy but the camera guys not the producer. Oh Yeah. Where's the camera picture on bow to? We need court to go to the trump who's trump who drove the trump who's producer who's directed where those people at Lake everything that goes into a production of a golf broadcast. Ken Be even bigger than Football Basketball Baseball and hockey. Because at least those venues are all a one static place so you could put cameras up in a stadium and field ain't GonNa Change. It doesn't work like that with golf when one week. The golf course looks like this in the next week is completely different. Everything gotta move is a traveling circus so to think that golf would be the one to go. Hey we'll come out. I will do a I. The Gulf was the second to last the shut it down. It was golfing NASCAR so in the long run when Gov comes back there I think of is gonNA come back without fans like I think every other sport will at first and I think golf will do okay in the long run. But I think we're GonNa wait longer than what we think for golf to come back. But and here's my silver lining. This is also where I love. What the Masters did where the Masters said we're coming back in November. The masters is the last thing on the schedule. Movember Ninety two fifteen and again talk about buffer nate. Just out not only did they come back. And we're GONNA do this in November. They also have already said. If you've got a ticket Komo come on in you know other sport has been no other waning. Tried to say only Augusta will be like not only. Are we putting the masses on? We're letting the Patriots into but we won't make that Egg Salad. We're going to make those divisional tea. Sandwiches come gifts on and I think November. Not only is realistic. But I love that. The masters is at least for me. The biggest beacon at the end of this dark tunnel. I tell you this though. Y'All come back I ain't GonNa meet you there right like they say like they just go be somebody out there. That's like now I'm good is somebody's wife. That's like yo you ain't going out on this trip like his eight nine. This ain't the Olympics though. That's what's funny. I remember when Owen down for the Olympics. Zeka you know guys were like I know plenty of dudes whose girlfriends and wives would like if you go. Don't come on you know. He you know he might put us in. The spot and jazz were like. I'm not even going to go I. I'm any worth you know. I'M I won't be happy home really but the masters though let's say right now there's plenty of dudes if that came down at the masters they are going to be like. Yo suitcases right over. She she she she. She want me to call Uber. Or because I'm going to the mass you don't WanNa go. You Ain't gotta go but one of us is going well. That tate is last thing I would ask you because I just thought of this while we were here. Are these golfers paying their caddies out like how I still pay my housekeeper? Even though she's not keeping the House I got the same thing Nancy so most golfers yes are trying to take care of their caddies in some way or form. We have to remember how cat is get paid. Caddies get a weekly paycheck and then you get a percentage of what the Golfer wins. But if the government's not winning anything where it becomes difficult is for. We all know the big super rich dude by all the big name guys like rory no Tiger Dustin Johnson of Brooks Kapka you name it Jordan Speed Rickie Fowler just Thomas Jon Rahm like those dudes of yes. They're going to be taken care of their dude with the guys who have a tough time on rookies. So the guys who came from the korn-ferry tour or the guys that this is only their second or third year on the PGA tour and they made them millions like those they could be struggling a little bit to one of the guys who I'm friends with a WHO's academy and doesn't caddy for a big named guys told me that his guy is sending them a little bit just a little bit every week just to help everybody still got bills and whatnot. So I'm sure that there are some guys that are not in a position to do that so there are probably some caddies that are hurt. But that's the world we live in right now so everybody's anxious to kind of get back to work pay
Do Animals Laugh?
"If you've ever been close with a non human animal you may think it's obvious that they have senses of humor. Even if most of what they think is funny. Is You know but we set out to learn what science has to say about it. Have you ever tried to tell a joke to an animal? I've done it before I I talk to my dogs. Whatever but this this brain stuff and I'm Christian Sager. So here's the question. Can Animals laugh in some cases. This might sound ridiculous. There are many different types of laughter and generally speaking these types fall into two broad categories complex social laughter where you have to know the context or have a sense of to you know get it and laughter in response to stimulation like tickling some animals such as primates seem to have a sense of humor. Meaning they can respond to situations with a hand. That sounds eerily similar to laughter. You can read numerous stories about Koko. The gorilla allegedly making jokes in sign language and so on. Additionally when adult animals like dolphins or ravens play pranks they're indicating an understanding of humor but laughter itself seems more common than humans had originally thought rats had been laughing. They're furry little keystones off the dawn of recorded history but we only figured this out a few years back. It turns out rats like being tickled and when they're tickled they chirp at a range too for human ears to pick up. It's around fifty kilohertz. We know this. Thanks to the work of Jacques Pants. Skip and Jeffrey Bergdorf beginning in the late nineties at Bowling Green State University. And if we're talking about that second category of laughter. A positive localization associated with touch than the comedy. Floodgates may have just swung open. Dr Davila Ross has been gathering as much data as possible about the reactions. Various animals have to being tickled the list of animals. That make a vocal reaction when tickled include. Mir Cats camels dolphins dogs Al's penguins and more. So what's the explanation? Well according to Michael Owen and associate professor of psychology and neuroscience from Georgia State University. That's my Alma Mater. The case may be simple at least when applied to mammals. It's just a pleasant feeling evoked by touching laughter. It seems may well be millions of years old and existed before human beings. If you think about it we're sort of late to the joke and to be fair. Most scientists aren't calling the straight out laughter. Instead they're suggesting that these positive vocalisations or as Dr Davila Ross rights expressions of joy. And when we ask whether laughter is a sign of intelligence. Dr Pank Sep notes. That intelligence isn't a requirement for laughter. Instead he suggests maybe we should look at it from another direction. Perhaps play in any species can increase social intelligence as research continues. We're learning more and more about animals laughter and

So special today you know when when when fairies start to play well pay stock to believe more they are trying more and I think it's also surreal Neatly in the last ten years there are lots of challenges of the future so the young player can play a lot of comment. And don't talk too much so that's really important. That makes a huge difference just having tournament on your doorstep and the cost a pretty low. Yeah yeah that's important. You know when a young player as to travel a lot. A lot of expense soy's School to have a lot of tournaments. You can go by car anoc of time. So it's it's good. It's good to have a lot of tournaments in our country and our Muslim Clay-court. Yes mostly on clay cool by the Easter also. On awkward there is future Lange asking care have five six challenger on our court and I think are on future Soit. Okay tell me used to be that hundred sixteen the world. You're quite young still now. You're thirty six for my research career. Yeah Yeah So. You're young coach. Many years you've been coaching and all this is the fifth year. Starting tomorrow you cannot do. I coach him for three years. We had the good results was seeking to me reached the semifinal embarrassing Iran and the U One. Three hundred so it was good works together great and just come back before you start working with him so we just mentioned briefly. Italian Tennessee student so well but apart from all the challenges that run initially every week every two weeks is a futures on all the time. What else has changed and Italian structure from the time? When you play tha now. I feel like I was coaching Michael Owen when they reached the semi final in various sets. And the think diesel Morris The Star of other player. They start to believe because Marco was was not so young was twenty five and this time and it was bad that they were trying a lot to get on the top under saw being challenged our soul the other player stuff to believe that they also can make this result and another feeing each that a lot of ex player that start to coach before when I was playing when it was playing.

I think it's the Sabadell for under sixteen in Italy so it's traveled sometime with a young player during good
UNC's Lost Season
"Jeff Bordello. I'm a little shook. North Carolina finished the regular season. They lose to do because that's fine we're used to that but they're the lowest seed in the ACC tournament North Carolina. So some how you would view this season for the tar heels. I mean they're arguably the most disappointing team in the country. Jeff Portillo is a college basketball insider for ESPN. And I know we have to take some other factors into account with injuries. And Karl Anthony and things like that but you know this was a preseason top ten team that like you said is going to be the bottom seed in the ACC tournament in the ACC is not goodness here. It's a it's a pretty down league you know. There are Miami. Nbc in Wake Forest Pittsburgh. None of those teams are very good and Carolina is at the bottom of all that and to me. That's shocking you know. This is one of the best of all time blueblood like I said a top ten preseason team and four months later five later. They're the worst team in the ACC. It's one of the bigger stories in college football this season and I think you could really make the case that there are the biggest disappointment in college hoops so let's go back to October. Preseason rankings come out North Carolina's in the top ten. They're sitting at number nine refresh everybody in what the real expectations were coming into this season for this team. I mean they a lot of guys from last year but they did bring in what people expected was an impact recruiting class was led by Karl Anthony Centerpiece of Roy Williams retooling effort. It's chole Anthony. Going the top freshman in the country making his debut tonight from of a raucous crowd here that the dome he was expected by pretty much everyone to be the most productive freshman in the country. That's how he wasn't high school that's where he was on the scene. He was a guy that was going to put up big points. He was gonNA put a big assist numbers. He's going to rebound and he was going to win games. That's just that's just what he was at the high school level and people expected him to to be that same player Carolina and it. Kinda set up perfectly for him because he was able to come in and this was a team that didn't have any real goto guys coming back. So they said hey collapsed. And you're getting the ball from day one and you're gonNA lead us and you know it kind of looked good. You know in the first game of the season. He was terrific. He had thirty four points. Eleven rebounds five assists debut for coal. Anthony lost a lot of stars to the NBA. After last season with the go one superstore Chambal. Whom the feeling was that? You know this team is going to be okay. Even despite the losses and along with him they brought into Grad transfer. Is that you know. We're probably two of the five or seven best. Grad transfer is in the country was Christian Keeling from Charleston southern just NPR's from William and Mary and and that added some experience at its veteran leadership and combined with a couple of other guys are Mondo Baker was a five star recruit garrison brooks was a two year starter download so i. I just think that people thought you combine the newcomers with the guys returning and even though there weren't any stars coming back from last year's team there was enough here to to compete for an ACC title and Roy Williams has done this before where his team is is written off a little bit in the preseason and under rank behind teams like Duke and he finds a way to win and that's just what he does and and I think people expected him to do it again with the guys coming in and coming back well so now you've got a team that has preseason expectations they get into. The season was the first time this season there was the first real sign of concern that the season might not go the way some had hoped. I think it was a couple of things I think one was even when they were winning the game. They won their first five games of the season. But even some of those the Notre Dame win the Alabama win. There were some signs of. Is this team going to be as good as we thought were Williams? I you get the sense. He hasn't loved all aspects of his teams. Play here today. You know he has. He has not name barely beat. Notre Dame eleven point margin was it. It wasn't addictive. How close the season opener was against Notre Dame so I think there was. Okay let's give it time. Let's let Cole Anthony. And the other freshman get acclimated and this team will figure it out but they lose by twenty five at home 'til Ohio state to start December. You know then they lose that. Virginia you know losing effort gene is not not a usually a big concern. This is not a vintage Virginia team and I think most people realize that at that time and then they lose to Wofford. They ended up finishing below five hundred in the southern conference. Terriers come to Chapel Hill and knock off a top twenty five North Carolina squad. And that's when the you know the eyebrow start raising what's going on with his team are they poised to be this massive disappointment and obviously once call. Anthony gets hurt. The wheels fall off from their breaking news. Call Anthony out four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus. Well at that point you know maybe things are a little bit concerning. But they're going to get two. Acc conference play. You said it the ACC not the best conference in the world so they get to the ACC schedule. How's that go form? You look at their schedule and you said okay they can. They can weather the storm three straight home games in. Acc play against Georgia Tech Pit Clemson and they had games against Pittsburgh Virginia Tech Miami even a bad UNC team or even a a mediocre UNC. Team could go six in Owen. Those games it was kind of the the bottom half of the league and they went one and five losing the first five games of that stretch. Seventy nine seventy seven double-overtime Virginia tech knocking off North Carolina. I think that was almost getting the end. When you look back the schedule what would be the one moment that sort of pushed everything over to the point in return honestly I think it was after Columbia comes back a long ways away. Eleven Games without call Anthony but he will play tonight. Yeah the five hundred. Unc team suddenly. Jay has a lot of juice and he'd be Miami. Nc State then call and he comes back for a home game in Boston College and you know. They weren't very good at the time but they tended ten three and six in the ACC and you know the the narrative was kind of okay. If Cole Anthony Comes back the committee will look at them and say you know with call. Anthony this is an NCAA tournament team. He's going to be on the roster in the NCAA tournament they're going to factor that in so I think people started wondering can. Unc string together. Some wins and make a late run and in his first game back. You lose at home to Boston. College straight three other time. He's spoiled return. I think that was the sign that it's not going to happen so that's not. Obviously the only epic moment we all continue to think about from the season tickets back to the first game between North Carolina and Duke. The Duke Game was a game that that could have turned things around at least changed the narrative about Carolina and to lose in that fashion. Another late blown lead. Losing to your biggest rival do comes back not to be Carolina to me. That was that was a really low mon it just because it it could have been really a season changing moment for Carolina and the way it happened it just it kind of sent them even further down into the season

Neil DeGrasse Tyson: I Am More Than Science
"Neil degrasse Tyson. It's one of the most brilliant people alive but when we finally got together for an interview I WanNa talk to him about science. I WanNa talk about almost anything else. So we get into who he is a deep about. How race has impacted his life. The book concludes with Attribute Kim say to your father your sorry Eulogy Yes yes and You Know I lost my dad last year Owen did. Your Dad passed three years ago. Three years ago and You honor him beautifully. Can you tell us about him? And how he leads into you sort of the way you sort of take from him to become who you are. Yeah So my parents were married. Sixty sixty four years until his death to the end right now and We had a stable household. My mother was a housewife homemaker. Today I guess we call that Until were empty nest and she went back to school. That was by agreement by the way so the agreement was my father would continue working and then my mother would raise the children at home. There were three of you. Yes and the middle earth and raise the children and then when we were mostly empty nest enough she will go back to school and pick up her career which is exactly what happened. And she went back to College. She got a degree in Gerontology. Became a German got her masters Gerontology. The study of the needs that afflict old people. Okay Okay and how to resolve Geriatric Okay. Yes correct to gerontology geriatrics the same route And she ended up working for the FEDS. Allocating moneys to retirement communities Old Age centers nursing homes this sort of thing so my father was studied sociology and got his Masters at Teachers College Columbia and was always his entire life. Maximally concerned with the plight of the under served and in New York City in the nineteen sixties. It was then known as the ghetto. He got noticed by the city. He got pointed to be a commissioner of human resources by Mayor Lindsay in the nineteen sixties during the most turbulent years of the civil rights movement in the big cities he. He worked long hours. We'd see me come at eight something like that. But he was home on the weekends and we would Cook Breakfast and dinner on the weekend so he participated household when he could but during the week it was mostly my mother who was raising us. And what reference in my eulogy are things that he said and did that contain called deep levels of wisdom. You know what is wisdom? It's it's ideas. It's wisdom our thoughts that you have that are the distilled essence of your life experience after you've discarded or forgotten the details that's actually a necessary part of wisdom that allows wisdom to come out in the form of sentences. No one's GonNa hand you a five hundred page book and say here's my wisdom. That's that's that's not wisdom wisdom almost fi construct has to be so simple and so deep that you just pause and reflect on it without getting mired details so one of them was. It's not good enough to be right. You also have to be effective. You can say I'm right therefore it should be this way. You know we don't have time for you. Have you navigated a pass to make this happen? Have you bought for example? The you know the water hoses and the in the south during the during the protests. Okay why do we have perfect video and photographs of it? Beacause the organizers made sure the press was there knowing they'd be able to capture those conflicts. This was even done even go back as far as Gandhi This was portrayed in the film Gandhi where he's ready to have a protest. It is not useful if no one knows about it if you get your head whipped by the local police and there isn't a photograph of it. You are in the right but you're not effective so you invite the press. The sympathetic press so that for me was very important in getting things done in navigating the terrain on which you're trying to implement social justice and the press doesn't write about events that don't happen why would they well in the late nineteen sixties watts burned. Detroit burned Washington burned. You're newark burned. New York City did not burn. The most populous ghetto in the country was basically quiet in the wake of the Martin Luther King assassination. Yes there was some minor skirmishes compared to what was going on elsewhere. No does anyone write a story no riots in New York The story is written. My father was active in the human resources administer. He's the commissioner a city commissioner. Making sure that there were opportunities available to people who needed opportunities for jobs to feed their family. What is a riot if it's not the very last act of desperation of the mouthpiece of the voiceless it is the it it not only voiceless people who are also hopeless Once you've run out of hope you have no options. You can have no voice but still hope you're not gonNA rock it. You gotta be voiceless and hopeless in it. Yeah so people in New York. The inner city of New York didn't was not without hope without some confidence that maybe there are opportunities just on the other side of the hill. I'm just saying these are things that my father was engaged in that I will not ever forget. I'm their son the astrophysicist but I stayed grounded in what matters for any kind of progressive change in this world and for me progressive. Change IS THE INEVITABLE. Consequence of rational thought applied to challenges. So no I'm not hitting people over the head saying you should be more progressive. Because then we've learned that some people dig their heels and more strongly to impose you especially in modern times where conflict has fomented on social media. But you just get people to think a little differently about things in the face of evidence. I've found that can have potency of its own and as an educator and as a scientist this is what I've done an in the book. Essentially every reply to people have written to me is an attempt to layer onto them some degree of measured rational thinking still some emotion there. You can't just be cold about it. But you want to empower people to be able to sink in new ways so that they can say. I now know how to analyze this information in ways I did not previously. Thank you for this bit of scientific insight. That allows me to do that. And that's what this book is about

The Skinny on Brown Fat
"Be surprised to know from a brief introduction that we have different facts in our bodies white take brown fat and the Brown is sometimes referred to as Beige or Brown adipose tissue but white fat is probably the factory to be familiar with white fat cells. Have have a single lipid droplet and the lodge fat droplets stores your energy around the body and as we know too much. White fat isn't a good thing. It forms from from taking an extra calories and it can lead to obesity. Higher Risk of heart disease and diabetes for example was Brown. Fat Differs to White Fast because his stores energy at a smaller space and the self contained many small lipid droplets. Not that of one large. It's also packed with Owen Rich. Might Conrad which it's how it gets. Its Brown color and Brown. adipose tissue can dissipate significant amount of chemical energy through uncoupled respiration and he he production and the heavens by a process called Thermo Genesis so Brown Fat Burns Energy and produces people predominantly have brown fat in areas including routing on neck's all codes kidneys and spinal cold and when activated by a cooler temperatures. Brown fat uses sugar and fat from the blood to generate heat in the body. So we know that one way to burn energy rather is free exercise obviously Brown adipose tissue also contributes to energy use. This why is quite fascinating. Because it's the type of fat that actually helps us burden more energy as it dispels energy as heat so it's able to potentially help us counterweight game. So how can we increase our levels of Brown fat. According to a twenty fourteen study conducted by the National Institutes of Health Research is which was then published in the journal Diabetes. I spending time in the cold may show Brown fat more active. And it can actually cause you to grow new brown fat cells. and this cold exposure activates the Brown adipose with host tissue Associated increased energy turnover and lower body. Fat Mass. There are also experiments conducted on mice. That showed that adding more brown factor to mice has been found to increase the rate. It was burnt energy reduced. The amounts of fats on their bodies and protect them from Diet induced. Obesity said it sounds pretty amazing. Leasing if you ask me. Further studies on mice and Brown adipose tissue also found that a protein called arison made help transform white fat to Brown and humans do producer sin and research uncovered the people who are sedentary produce. Follow letter this protein compared to those who exercise often so if people are doing intense aerobic interval training then they might have more chance to transforming their white fat to the more beneficial brown fat again. Another big arguments as to why are exercise. Size and health and fitness is so important further research obviously does need to be conducted into Brown. Fat and research is really still trying to understand it and understand the genes that control. How White Tim Brown fat develops in one study? Scientists engineered mice to be born with very little brown fat by limiting a protein called type one. ABM Receptor Sepah but when it comes to the cold the mice created brown fat from their white fat and this shows the power of recruitment office. That cold exposure can actually help us increase all brown fat fat levels but again this isn't as a house and start taking ice baths and turning down your thermostat. It needs a little more research to be done in Egypt. Consult your doctor as well. But but the core principles obviously we still are basic diet and exercise but also finally want to leave is on this note that there is a research going on into a fat grafting getting procedure to convert White Brown fat. So Columbia engineering team led by someone who is a professor biomedical engineering. They've developed a simple innovative method. That converts Brown outside the body. So this happens. Outside the body and they re-implant a hint to a patient and this fat grafting technique involves harvesting fats from under the skin. And then re transplanting it into the same patient wall reconstructive purposes and the report in which was published in scientific traffic reports said they successfully converted hot unharvested white fat to Brown fat in the lab which shows its potential use as therapy so be interesting to see the space I developed but again want done by balanced diet exercise adequate rest. We we've seen from this as well now. Exercise Not being trained allies can also help Lavar Brown fat level so again encourage you to get out and get your daily dose of exercise but
Garth Greenwell: Cleanness
"I'm Michael Silver Blood and this poor for today. I'm excited to have as my guest Garth Greenwell you know. He's been on before with the previous book. Called what belongs to you and yet his new book called cleanness I think is still more extraordinary. Although the response to the first book was the response to the greeting of a brand undo writer of Great Dunk AC- beauty importance and Garth greenwell began his writing life as a poet. What turns you to pros? That's such a difficult question for me to answer because because it's so mysterious to me. I think it had to do with the seven years. I spent teaching high school which I think You know doing that. I discovered new a new capacity in myself to be interested in other people's lives and In the world around me and I think it had to do with moving to Sofia Bulgaria where I lived for four years and where I spoke a language other than English everyday some combination Shen of those things made me start hearing sentences. That aren't broken into lines. It's really interesting because was on the one hand there is in this new book cleanness which is a novel divided into stories stories kind of and sections stories form sections sections lead to the novel. And we're watching the the narrator develop his sense of sex and love their in Bulgaria and so when he falls in love. It's was someone who's done more frightened about public expression but the pros does. Your pros is not frightened of the six Russian. You're taking great care in sort of if James Ian Steps Comma by Comma to tell us what is thought and felt but vis mash up of James and pornography is absolutely you know. It's the first time time I think. Oh well thank you. That's a a wonderful response to the book. I mean the sentence is for me. The unit of composition. You know my great poetry. Teachers were three poets who are obsessed with the expansive capacity of English Syntax. The poets Frank Bidart Story Graham and Carl Phillips. Oh my I knew about Frank Bidart I am. I am friends with an I love jury. What a wonderful wonderfully strange person? She magnificent the real jealous But so is Ba- Dart and the third is Carl Phillips Owen. I know Karl to you or very often. I was extremely teachers. I mean this boy from you know Tobacco Farming Kentucky getting to study with these people. It's a real blessing and while you're a boy from a tobacco farm in Kentucky. It's only slightly exaggerated. I was first generation raised off the farm but every weekend every not every school break we were on the farm. Yeah and somehow or other though you had three brilliant poets who who were able to accept that you were going to become a novelist I got to have an extraordinary education. I did an MFA in poetry. With Carl Phillips Saint Louis and the night did half of Harvard which is where I worked with jewelry and then I dropped out of Harvard and I disappeared and didn't have any contact with them for seven in years while I was teaching high school for of those years in Bulgaria. But here's the thing I mean you know I wrote what belongs to you without ever studying fiction as a writer later or as a scholar without ever being a fiction workshop. And I really I think you know I wrote it using the tools that I had which were not the tools of a fiction writer the tools of a poet. Yes I think. In the case of this book it was very good for you to be in that circumstance because I think one of the program program could have done would be to expose you to people whose draws would draw with agitation about your subject brighter which in your short preceding novella mid go develops into your I novel. What belongs to you? And these are books about falling in love with a male prostitute Trieste and this is a subject matter. It's not that it hasn't been broached own. But it's not been broached easily and certainly it hasn't been broached without melodrama your book. These two who are unknown dramatic. They're calm passionate books about the fear. The comes along when you reveal yourself to another person and the other person in the first two books is that prostitute who is not used really to passion being directed at him by someone who wants to know what it's like to live a life with all the doors and windows open Right that's beautiful. That's a beautiful description of that relationship. Ya now frank. BIDART is not only one of your teachers to me. His one of the very very best and riskiest poets wits riding in America but his life is a very different kind of risk. Yes he keeps his sexual nature on a high level of the sacred and the spiritual and without that he'd rather not be involved so when he read how open you were going to be as a prose writer. What did he communicate Kate to you will so for me? I mean frank was my most important teacher and to me. He is the most important living American writer I agree and the great example of his work is a kind of utter fearlessness and determination nation. You know I think one thing that artists do that a certain kind of artists has to do and maybe to make the kind of art that I most value one has to go into an abyss and one has to follow one subject. All the way down you know. We've become very skeptical of a kind of romantic myth of the artist and I think that skepticism is a good thing but I also think that there is real risk and making that kind of art because when one goes into an abyss there is no guarantee one will come back out and writing parts of this book cleanness. I felt quite frightened frightened and I found myself in places I did not want to be. Frank was the great example. I called to mind about what what fearlessness in art looks like one of the things that most amazed me about the response to what belongs to was how much people talked about sex and just how surprised they were by the sex in the book. It didn't even occur to me to think that it was anything extraordinary because Frank Bidart was my great teacher. Frank Frank Bidart is the great potent. Nothing is forbidden in his in his work.
Traditional and Social Media: Trump's Key to Success
"What is keeping you up at night? The most when you think about twenty twenty. What keeps me up at night is that trump has a massive structural media advantage? He has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous discipline support and Democrats have not yet figure how to counter that. This primary season is not lending itself to to our party getting out a clear alternative to Donald Trump. He's an uncanny message person every time I think he's really off on something. Then we go and test it and we find out how strong it is. I wish we had some place that was able to get out consistent message against him. Two of the most important things that Democrats can control role in this campaign are what to say and how to say it. In other words our message and the strategies we use to communicate that message is Dan Pfeiffer and Celinda Lake just mentioned the Party starts twenty twenty at a disadvantage in both of these areas along. Crowded primary. Hasn't allowed us to coalesce around a single message about what we stand for. Or how we govern and aside from your friends at crooked media a few other outlets like us there's just no progressive equivalent to Fox News and the massive propaganda machine that Donald Trump and the Republicans rely on to deliver their message overcoming. This challenge might be the most critical step on the path to victory. Sorry in November. Because as we've now learned from the organizers on the ground and the voters in our focus groups it's crucial to breakthrough all the noise and nastiness cynicism to actually reach people where they are and persuade them that it's possible for us to get to a better place. So how do we do that. We'll talk to people who have some smart ideas on media and message in our final episode of the Wilderness. It's very hard for Democrats. Even the current contract with the media to put the conversation on the things that matter to voters healthcare where the economy those sorts of issues. They don't get clicks. Try Social Media Traffic. There's no algorithm benefit to them so they might as well be trees falling in the forest at times. That's Dan pfeiffer. Lifer Co host to Pod Save America and author of un-trumpian America pointing out. How difficult it is for Democrats to break through with messages policies that the voters we've heard from actually actually care about Donald Trump on the other hand doesn't have this problem? He has a tremendous advantage because of social media so the Algorithms reward outrage and outrage as the coin of the Roman conservative politics but it's not just social media where trump has an advantage. He also has tremendous Mendes influence over. What the traditional media covers the traditional media is forced by the perverse economics of digital advertising icing to cover trump? He is the nation's assignment editor. which is something one of us wants called him? We start with the president's public meltdown on twitter pushing the trade war between the world's economic superpowers into a dangerous new fe day. Nine I think of the president continuing to go. After this group of women he calls them a UC seve plus three. That's the new nickname that he unveiled for them today. The way in which media outlets have to pay their bills in a world in which you are getting paid paid by the click forces you into covering and writing about content that gets clicks. Because you're getting your traffic from facebook and Google right right in facebook. It's rewarding trump content because trump content makes people so he has that advantage tear McGowan a democratic strategist and CEO. Joe Of digital advertising firm acronym expands on Dan's notion of trump. As the nation's assignment editor the mainstream media are only covering what what gets the most noise which is actually really seeded by the Republicans and trump specifically because trump will tweet something out and then the media picks up on it because they have to exceed the president. It started when he tweeted on Sunday. That Alabama would quote most likely be hit much harder than anticipated painted. The National Weather Service then tweeted. Alabama will not see any impacts from Roy in the trump era a lot of media criticism is about whether journalists I do enough to fact check. Trump's lies or even call them lies at all but what may be even more helpful to trump is that the media has allowed him to become as Dan says says the nation's assignment editor. They let him drive the conversation. They let him pick the issues. They let him set the terms of the debate. Even when he's not talking about about governing or policy-making which usually isn't these bad incentives or why as Dan points out the overall effect of media criticism about trump trump will always be limited. I mean there is definitely some benefit to working there but we are not like seven tweets. Maggie Haberman away from solving this problem like we also have to be clear we as progressives have the wrong view of the media. We had this vision of the media as this set set of referees and fact checkers who bring order to our messy politics and so in doing so we think they think it's their job. takedown trump that is not their job so if we continue to mythology is the media. We're never going to succeed. The communication strategy because it lends us to believe leave that the best way to communicate is talk to the media supposed to talk to people. What's even more unfortunate is that Republicans realized long ago that they needed to go around the traditional channel media and build their own channels of communication trump has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous disciplined? Frankly was not just Fox. It's the entire right-wing talk radio sphere. Beer it's Owen. It's Breitbart. It is like this. Plethora of online very sketchy digital outlets that are pumping trump propaganda into the ecosystem. Is Dan says right. Wing media goes well beyond Fox News and Breitbart to random corners of the Internet. You've probably never heard of Tair. McGowan knows these online worlds all too well and takes us down the rabbit hole. There's also publications that popped up like the big league. The Big League was started by twenty seven year old man who left Breitbart because he felt it had gone soft after trump was elected in the big league is notorious yes because they were the publication that released the north black face. Photo did participate in a dance contest. In which darken my face as part of a Michael Jackson Costume the yearbook photo was broken. Not by the New York Times but by big league politics a right wing media outlet run by a former BREITBART writer. This the new normal these strategically pushed it out and got the national media to cover it win. You know I was in a very politically vulnerable moment. Coming to the defense of a late abortion bill in the State House in Virginia this revenge politics media is being being used as a weapon to deploy this type of revenge politics after the election. So there are these all over the Internet and they're not just the ones that are so explicitly unapologetic about their political agenda. Like Breitbart and Fox. There's also sinclair a hundred and ninety three local television affiliates. Let's sinclair is a pro-trump Corporation. Why our cable news channels airing so much coverage of the trump Russia story so here are the options? It's bias against the president for higher ratings or it's a really important story and now these trusted local news. Brands friends are putting money behind facebook. Ads to their viewers endorsing and marketing trump Maga- hats the daily beast reports sports at least twenty-seven clear broadcasters posted items on their website starting on Thursday hyping a new keep America great had for sale and the trump campaign's website. The right right has built this infrastructure and now is pushing millions and millions of dollars a month behind the content and the messengers that have influence on their side. How on channels like facebook and Google? And we're not spending any money we're just relying on the mainstream media to do our job which they're not gonNa do do because they live in fear of being called the liberal fake news media that that if we're not spending at the same clip that trump and the Republicans are just to drive our offensive. Message were losing the information war. The good news is Tara. Has Some ideas about how the Democrats can catch up. I believe the only solution antidote to this challenge is to have our own communication like our own owned channels to communicate to people directly and that does not mean in. NFL areas ways does not mean spread liser misinformation. It's the opposite but we have to do. Is We actually have to compete tears. Right it's one of the reasons we started crooked crooked media and now terror is actually building another one of those channels herself after working as a digital producer for Obama in twenty twelve and is the director of digital strategy. See for priorities. USA In two thousand Sixteen Terrace started acronym her nonprofit digital firm that's creating progressive ads in content for twenty twenty acronym. mm-hmm isn't making these ads the same way it's always been done but the same old democratic ad firms. They're using an approach. That's both more creative. And more data driven we'll look at a very very large audience of people And take you know ten different messages. Around how trump has been really bad for the economy. So those messages could be you know the impact of offshoring jobs the tax cuts for the rich and squeezing the middle class further. The trade war. What have you and then for each of those messages will develop tons of content memes gifts videos etc then our creative director will go to the team and be like okay? What are all of the different visceral values driven identity driven ways? We can express this message. And they'll build out all this content and then what we do is we push it out to a broader audience. Audience of voters in say Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin. And then what we're doing is we are actually surveying groups of these voters who are getting all of this content Dan and learning on a biweekly basis. What of these messages? And what of the actual pieces of content were delivering is having the most impact impact at chipping away at trump's approval rating among those voters. In real time

Unredacted Ukraine Documents Reveal Extent of Pentagon's Legal Concerns
"The politics lead now amidst the presidential impeachment involving withheld White House meeting for the President of Ukraine Secretary of State. Mike pompeo cancelled his planned trip to Ukraine bear. He would have met with Ukrainian Presidents Alinsky. The State Department saying Pompeo did so so in order to monitor the violence surrounding Iraqi embassy. This news comes as new reporting from the website just security showing us. What's behind some of those black lines James? In the redacted emails the trump administration was forced to hand over to those requesting it which include warnings from the Pentagon that the hold on military Ukraine rain broke the law and that the decision withhold the aid came right from the top. CNN Sara Murray reports in the face of mornings from the Pentagon on that holding nearly four hundred million dollars in Ukraine could be illegal. A top budget official made it clear. The orders were coming directly from the President Clear Direction from Port Chris to continue to hold Michael Duffy. Atop Office of Management and budget official wrote in an email to Defense Department Comptroller Elaine mccusker on August thirtieth national security focused website just security reviewed the unredacted emails which had previously been released by the trump administration with heavier reductions. The emails reportedly show that weeks. Earlier mccusker flagged concerns that if the hold wasn't lifted soon the Pentagon couldn't guarantee all of the money would reach Ukraine and time. The emails highlight the finger pointing between Owen. Be and the Defense Department over the freeze on Ukraine funds today no MB. Spokesperson said. There was agreement every step of the way between Dod and lawyers who are responsible eligible for working out the details of the hold in line with the president's priorities Defense Department officials disagreed. One said we were always concerned about the ramifications sins of holding the military assistance to Ukraine the new details come as the impeachment proceedings remain in limbo White House. Aides were in touch with Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell's office over the holidays. But when the Senate returns tomorrow McConnell plans to continue business as usual until Nancy Pelosi officially transmits the articles of impeachment. Each mint your house. Democrats seem to be suggesting they'd prefer never to transmit the articles Democratic lawmakers including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are already seizing on these emails pointing to them as evidence that any kind of fair trial in the Senate is going to need to include documents documents and witnesses from the trump administration. Jake all right Sara Murray. Thanks so much and this is how Nancy Pelosi just responded to these new emails on a tweet trump engaged in unprecedented resonated total obstruction of congress hiding these emails all other documents and his top aides from the American people. His excuse was a phony complain about the house process. What's the excuse now? Why won't trump McConnell allow a fair trial? What do you make that argument Asia? What it is something that they're going to really drill down on these unredacted emails? They really do raise questions because you had ownby general counsel has sent a letter to the GAO so Basically saying that that they had held up this money and that the reason why they held up this money that but it didn't really make a big difference. That dod was telling them that there was no risk that this money wouldn't go out but what you see in. These emails is the direct opposite of what will be said that there was a risk that this money was going to be held up and there was a legal concern and this goes to the heart of what kind of Republicans have been saying that this was just people. This was just the deep state. They just disagreed with policy but the concern that we're being raised. Were not about policy. They were about legal issues. People in the Dod thought that this was illegal that they were withholding this money. I and here's this. One unredacted email from August thirtieth of last year from Michael Duffy. He's Office of Management and budget official to Elaine mccusker. She's a Pentagon comptroller. Roller mentions the quote clear direction from Potus President of the United States to continue to hold this obviously flies right in the face of those who are saying. There's nothing meantime president trump to this and. I don't think that many people actually believed that the number of Publicans elected officials the real people people the the the number who think it was a perfect call and there was nothing here is fairly low. The question is again whether that rises to the point point they want him removed. And that's a real open question. I'm not real sure what we're doing at this point. Are we going to transmit the articles of impeachment. Are we going to Redo the thing in the house because as we have more information or they just asking to be in control of the Senate rules and all of that sounds like Gobbledygook. That's what it sounds like to normal people as well and it will continue to sound like that which is y this is sort of stagnant and has been for quite some time and that part matters one of these I would say yes and no right if Democrats keep it very simple which is the president of the United States should tell the truth. Why are you blocking material evidence because every time in the last couple of weeks we've got new information? It undermines the president so it looks like he's using his power or to protect himself. And why won't you let these people come forward and testify now when we went through the house proceedings. Republicans kept saying well. These people don't have direct knowledge. Okay so now now Schumer saying we want people with direct knowledge. This report gives us more information from security. That gives an actually the New York Times even earlier. This week gives us more information of exactly. What kind of direct knowledge these individuals hat and their participation so I think if Democrat now that they're in this phase of negotiating? I'm sure tomorrow is going to be full of lots of bluster on the Senate floor. That'll be great. However I think this gives Schumer and Pelosi some leverage? It's not just about Mitch McConnell. It's about those senators who are vulnerable honorable right that doesn't move those needle move Nina with those enough Republicans. Four Republican senators. What would be needed for anything at the end of the day? Fifty one votes wins. I haven't seen that yet collins and Murkowski who expressed concerns but then they also say we're concerned with the democratic process or in case she said I'm open to waiting on the witnesses until after the case so if they're not willing to get behind Democrats in this push for firsthand witnesses and documents. It's just not going to happen. Would you look like you're about to say yeah. I'm just. I'm just skeptical. That there's enough enthusiasm to on this issue on the issue of witnesses inside a Senate trial among Americans wants to put enough pressure on a couple of senators for them to go. Oh Yeah we're GONNA change the way we do this. I can hardly and buck McConnell. It's very hard to imagine a president venting about a lot of things on twitter today as want quoted a conservative commentator from the NOCCO saying quote. It seems the Democrats have shot themselves in the foot in one one more way and this president is being persecuted over three years with one investigation after another and and that really plays to his base. It's it's an argument to me because I mean things are not clear cut here. We had the impeachment proceeding. And then it's just kind of as Mayor Catherine some points on hold and we're not really sure what's going to happen and the country is divided right like even though some polls have shown that the majority of the country thinks that he did something wrong that the president president did something wrong. They are divided on what happens next And so I think probably what you're having now is a Democrat trying to decide. What are they what type of pressure they can really put on president trump? He was saying that he wanted a trial but in the past few days. He's kind of been hinting that maybe he doesn't care what happens. I think he wants to be vindicated. I I think he's GonNa want some type of trial but it's not clear how much the Democrats are really going to be able to dictate that. Are they putting the Democrats putting enough pressure directly on Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney any other vulnerable Republican with ads with democratic grassroots activists. I mean I haven't seen that I agree with you. I haven't seen enough of it. I think there have been some efforts. It was a little bit challenging. I think during the holidays now that we're back in January. I think it'll be a lot easier and again as long as as they keep it simple. I think there is a very fair argument to be made about the facts and the
A CAmpaign To End The Celebration Of New Years
"Welcome to the promised by gas. Brought to you on T. l. v. one the voice of the city whose worthies and Burgers in the nineteen thirties launched a campaign against the celebration of New Year's which in mandatory Palestine as in Modern Day Israel was known as Sylvester the name borrowed from Pope Sylvester the first thirty third pope of the Catholic Church who was buried and in the catacombs of Priscilla in Rome on December thirty first and who was beatified on December thirty first date became known as Saint Sylvester's Day or the Feast of Saint Sylvester which feasts came to stand for the reveries of the night dividing the last day of the year from the first day of the New Year in Israel as in Austria Italy Lee Bosnia Germany Slovenia Slovakia Switzerland Luxembourg left in China Poland and the Czech Republic France Croatia and probably elsewhere as well now on December remember twenty seven thousand nine hundred eighty four for instance. The paper hired-in reported that the city had been plastered with posters quote sponsored by the rabbinate and the the Hebrew community calling for residents not to celebrate this holiday Silvester as it is foreign to the spirit of Judaism they ask the owners of houses of pleasure and cafes not to rent their rooms for these purposes and quote Davar reported in the same year that deputy mayor Easter Iraq who fifteen years later would ascend to to mayor addressed the city council about quote the question of the holiday of Sylvester that is setting down roots in Tel Aviv. FEE proposal of Mr Rocca was accepted saying at the city council of Tel Aviv sees in the foreign custom of Sylvester celebrations a definitely unwanted thing which is in opposition to the spirit and traditions of the people title of Israel and asks all cafe owners and owners of large halls in the city not to organize Sylvester parties. A committee was chosen to speak with cafe owners owners etc about this matter and quote a year later in nineteen thirty five the municipality itself published this notice quote the city sees itself as obligated to remind owners of cafes and restaurants this year once again of the need to refrain from having public celebrations in honor of Sylvester Eve. This custom to celebrate the holiday of Sylvester believe in public Jewish circles in the Hebrew city harms the national lifestyle that is taking form in the land of our forefathers. This claim is aimed also at the General Oh public some of whom admittedly only a few make a practice of celebrating this holiday with debauchery and loud social parties obviously the municipality and the the citizens of the city will treat with respect anything undertaken and done in honor of this day by those residents of the city and their guests who are not Jewish for this is their holiday and quote in a year after that in one thousand nine thirty six of our reported after the fact that quote several cafes such as the Lawrence and Savoy had special holiday programs in Tel Aviv. There there were many private Sylvester parties mostly from the circles of immigrants from Germany until morning. There was much car traffic and many walking on foot. One of these people who return to his home home after midnight under the influence of alcohol startled the volunteer firefighters with a false report of a fire end quote in nineteen thirty nine. The paper beaucaire made its feelings things about known with a one line article with a banner headline on page three the article in its entirety. Read quote on Silvester Eve. Eleven people committed suicide in new. You Work and quote in one thousand nine forty. The religious paper hot so fat reported this quote I witnesses say that a man of Israel at midnight in Tel Aviv especially in the North would forget that he lives in his own nation and land semester celebrations were celebrated in several coffee houses Jewish houses in the Hebrew city and whomever was indies coffee houses which elevated the celebration to the top of the top and drinking and debauchery would forget that we live in times of emergency. The New Year by the general accounting is not for us. It's the Jews. But it is a New Year for trade and bills and money's silvester celebrations are not Jewish celebrations in the land of Israel. Especially and only those who became habituated to these celebrations collaborations in foreign lands the lands of assimilation fail to Wean themselves of this habit. Even after they pass through all the circles of hell they returned to their iniquity in the land of Israel Israel. These are just one chapter of the spiritual and moral decline that is evident in our public life especially in the first Hebrew city the glorious tel.. Ah Vive end quote now to celebrate. Silvester Twenty twenty in the glorious Tel Aviv. There were hundreds of events for instance one could welcome the New Year with the Abba Tribute Band Carney or or go to Cooley Alma for their annual gala. Three for one Christmas New Years Novi Bash the bootleg was hosting a centers party quote unquote the hostile hosted hip hop new year's breakfast on Rothschild had funke Meli and these were just a fraction of what was on offer so grand was the celebration that the municipality itself posted this on facebook from the legendary Tel Aviv. EDM Club the block quote mayor e high. I don't feel so good. I won't be coming into work tomorrow and quote quote this post from Iraq Tel Aviv Tel Aviv municipality itself. Yes there was the battery in the city. All right one could pretty much find any form of depravity ones. Momma might have worn one against save perhaps for the badgering bullying browbeating of the burgers. About how you really shouldn't go to a drag show on New Year's in the first Hebrew city in the Jewish state and arguing nothing captures the spirit of the city. Well Tel Aviv. Dafa better than a tradition reaching back. Almost ninety years of offsetting the ideological severity doctrinaire rectitude a to enforce the citizen of the hidden who ain't kidding of joyless Orthodox Zionism and greeting each new year. Hal each new day with playful exuberance heterodox selective Goya's and lots and lots of alcohol and seeing the first Hebrew city is a place not just for spiritual fulfillment but also for fun fun fun and more heretical. Still Bill Finding spiritual fulfillment in fun. Fun Fun with us. In the studio is the woman who's lovely prose is like a killer party and everyone's invited I speak of course of Alison gap and Summer Alison for Politico Than Republic foreign policy the Jerusalem posted.

Oh very boring. I'm not a big New Year's eve person but it always takes me back to. When I first arrived in Israel in the nineteen eighteen eighty s and like most Americans had never heard of Saint Sylvester or New Year's Eve being referred to as Sylvester so when people started talking about Sylvester? What was the only Sylvester? I was familiar lady Birds Sylvester the cat. tweet neighbors I was like what are they crazy about the cartoons. I it took me a while to like and still now when I hear about Sylvester immediately that like cat face POPs. What's up in front of me? I thought I thought also in the studio with us as a man who is exhibit a rather than spiritual and moral decline in the city seems to be gaining in spiritual and moral seriousness through the generations. I speak of course of Os Zelter Zubeida Zelter writes and reviews books for arts including waiting just a week ago in the past he hosted a weekly show on TV on arts and culture in Israel and he is a political activist of passionate power charm and charisma insight and intelligence Ohad. Oh how is your Silvester. I was dancing on a wooden bar dancing on the bar. Because somebody in this room should have had a proper nears eve right now that's Great throughout my neck from dancing so hard I think that means that I partied as much as I could dance on your neck. No is is now painful because identity on my feet that that is a badge of honor. Yes angry my name is Owen. I don't meet the boasts upgraded the operating system on my phone last week and ever since I've been receiving hectoring messages about how I don't sleep enough and maybe it's time for me to go to sleep right now and how. I listened to an awful lot of podcast and oh I listen to my music. Too loud ended ended. I know that long term exposure to loud noise can be damaging to my hearing. And I really don't WanNa Brag about how I have maintained my youthful lifestyle
Remembering Paul Volcker
"Here's the thing about Paul Volcker the former chairman of the Federal Reserve arguably one of the most influential of Fed shares. Who died it yesterday at the age of ninety two? Yeah it's kind of an amazing story that's author and New York Times editorial board member beaming Applebaum on this show about a month or two ago. He used to cover the Fed for the Times. When Paul Volcker I started at the Federal Reserve he worked basically as a human calculator in an office deep inside the Federal Reserve? There Have Bank of New York in the early nineteen fifties and he told his wife one night that he didn't think he had a future at the Fed that as an economist he was always going to be consigned to being essentially. Actually you know A worker bee at this institution that was run by financial market types businessmen. Those even a Iowa Hog farmer there and he didn't think that he had much chance of getting ahead. Suffice it to say Paul Volcker got way ahead at the Federal Reserve. Jimmy Carter picked him to run the Central Bank in nineteen seventy nine with inflation and this is important headed toward almost fifteen percent. I ask Carter about that about the economic and political fallout from picking Volker when I interviewed the former president in two thousand ten so I went looking as I Picked up this book. I went looking for the name. Paul Volcker who You pointed to the Fed in nineteen seventy nine. You don't come across crosses name until page three hundred and forty something and it's really funny because it is dismissed in a sentence. Paul Volcker came in We decided we could work with him. And then the the next day bang you name to defend that was really the one of the most hotly debated things. I did because a lot of my political advisor. Said don't appoint Paul Volcker because he's going to tighten up on everything and you will have no control at all over the Fed anymore. You won't even have communication with him when Paul Volcker came. I was seeing the prospect of enormous inflation rates. And so I agreed with Paul Volcker in conversation that I would not interfere in what he did. I was prepared for him. To tighten up tremendously and drive interest rates and so forth up in order to control rampant in. It's funny actually because a little bit later in the book you basically say in this passage that you dictated at the time Volcker says he's going to have to tighten interest rates. And it's GonNa hurt me politically. I mean. You knew it was coming. I knew it was coming but I was prepared to take it. I thought that I could be reelected in spite of that as it turns out. Of course things didn't work out for President Carter about which I asked Paul Volcker in two thousand twelve if I read the see the recounting of that job interview correctly in this book. You basically said I want independence and I gotta do what I gotTa do. It was obvious why he wanted to see me. But I MR president and if you're thinking of appointing me Germany Federal Reserve. You have to know that I believe in somewhat entitled Monetary Policy and we have been following and my predecessor followed. Yeah you know I the next question I asked the president actually was Did you mind when he raised interest. He's like that and he said Oh no I I thought it was going to be good for the next presidential term. I thought that term was going to be mine. Not Raking No. He asked him why said I cost him the election. There's some people said and he had kind of Ri- smiled and he said well I think there were a few other factors as well after he left the Fed in nineteen eighty seven. Paul Volcker worked on on Wall Street for a while. Got Drafted back into government service every now and then most. Recently as the chairman of President Obama's economic recovery advisory board and as the namesake for the Volcker Carulli. The part of the Dodd Frank Financial Reform Bill that limited some of the kinds of trades. The Big Wall Street banks could make. But really when you think Paul Volcker. It's those years in the late nineteen seventies early nineteen eighties when the Fed pushed short-term interest rates up to a record twenty percent to get inflation back under control twenty percent went today the Fed's current short-term target rate is between one and a half percent and one and three quarters percent and it hasn't over five in more than a decade which makes double digit interest rates hard for most Americans below a certain age to even fathom so marketplace's Amy Scott takes us back in the early nineteen eighties and Owen managed a bank branch Boston to remember telling customers. They'd have to pay twenty one percent interest for a car loan today. The average is just over for four percent. They would get mad at the bank and many times they would just basically say I can't afford that. Oh and went on to become an economist at the Fed and now teaches at Hamilton College. She says those high interest rates had a purpose volcker was trying to slow down demand by making borrowing more expensive give. It made it difficult for people to buy houses by cars Credit card interest rates. Were extremely high. The economy did slowdown slowdown falling into two recessions. In one thousand nine hundred eighty two unemployment topped ten percent in protest homebuilders mailed. Chunks of two by fours is to Volker and members of Congress. Fred Napolitano is former president of the National Association of homebuilders. Just make a point to say this is what we do is is what we build you know with. The interest rate is hurting us. That pain eventually paid off. Robert King is a professor of economics at Boston University. Ultimately once people began to believe that inflation was gonNA come down it came down and interest rates tumbled and the economy recovered and and it's viewed as a major triumph at triumph. Nobody wants to have to repeat. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace. Paul Volcker did yesterday at at the age of ninety

"So and so oh good you know what I'm saying. Oh good. And he nailed it and there was so much fun. I was so happy that he was able to like do that. He'd like genuinely gravity right here because he knew you were the one who pulled it. Yeah and so then. Afterwards he goes So he's rap on Chris. Webber spelled like nine thirty ten o'clock in a they go We go so which argument do now and I go. Well we gotTA finished marble. Hang out for a little bit obsolete so then you know kind of like. I'm going back video. Village action suit in the next sack. You can see his shadow in a shot and the director of that and Chris eating a donut like he has no idea. Because I don't want to basically went from. Oh Shit is Chris Robertson. Oh Shit He. Everyone hates Chris trailer. What's break we come back? And there's so many things did we have you back on the show. Oh and Smith is with us. This is slow down ranby. I heard this the other day and I love the achieve seeds On Smith we'll talk our talk Kapernick on the other side of this thing. Just lots to talk talk about the summertime. We'll get on the other side Right we'll be right back Some so what they knock before he's got a limited. Hey guys welcome to the show. Owen Smith is here. Follow him on twitter. Owen Smith the number four real Owen Smith four a real twitter instagram and instagram And live shows people can see you out. Can they find out how to live DOT com. Okay I'm I'm I'm usually at the comedy store Improv or to laugh at any road stuff or mostly around not right now But I'll be I'll be. I don't know I gotta get a Netflix special or something. I love it. Whatever we do on making you come to my school benefit? Because I can't wait crazy on that I can't wait so good the stuff about you and your relationship with your wife and all that so good about the sneakers on this show that all all of it all the time well and you know sports you wrote for the. Sp's you know so so let's talk about who some quick hits I wanNA talk about. I want your a perspective on the capture nick thing because it's great the chirping back and forth between Stephen Smith and Eric Reid is fascinating to me and so I'm trying trying to understand it. And making huge capital defenders fries protests. Yeah and then at the same time we just go okay. Well what is he trying to do. I mean and this is what I don't know. Maybe you better perspective on this is e trying to get back into the League Or is he just trying to make a statement as you're trying to mask unmask. How how Shitty the League actually is? Well I wanna I just WanNa even take it back. Another step is we are looking at Colin like he's like to static attic individual like we only see him but you don't realize like what he's been through these last years right like his livelihood has been taken from him except that he had a a huge contract with Nike. Do his thing but his too. Yeah but his whole place for this whole like he looking at the one man on earth. WHO's not allowed to be angry right? So what does that feel. You know what I mean like. If he chose any type of anger it the narrative on it is spun to be so careful with how staff staff year. But if any of this and so is is he So is he Martin he's everyone wants him to be Martin Luther King Knish and just be nonviolent and just you know taking a nap regard and no one wants him to have a little bit of Malcolm in you know and so I feel like you see again is even thirty. I think he's maybe he's thirty one. Yes all this has happened to them so oh just when I watched his reaction ready to play like when he was like just that was like stuff built up like he loves the game he wanted to play the game and the thing he was shining light to a very simple thing in his mind he wasn't I don't feel like he was like everyone's saying that. He ruined his the narrative of him ruining his the job interview. And how you I mean that is a perspective hip two types of mindsets people who who are employees and there's people employers right so I like. We always do that like with like. Why do you name your children like my mom named Me Owen? Because she wanted me to be able to get a job but I don't WanNa work for anybody. You know what I mean like. Look what you did your your own I wanna I WANNA be my own employer. I'm still currently working working with people in Weird ways but my spirit is that of an employer so my spirit is my my inner spirit is a dude named like you know. Look of a D'Amato just whatever you know. Like I have a yes. So he does looking at a guy if he was if he was more. I hate to say this but if he was like more If he knew how to hit those talking points was more like pointed in specific. I don't WanNa say ticket but just marketer marketer into what he was trying to do and could be really clear I don't think any of this would be like they see. I kinda think to to me. I felt like he felt like he thought as soon as he realized that the media wouldn't be allowed to go right. Go to the tryout. All his trust is all just trust because why wouldn't the whole. NFL show off all the owners already said they colluded against him anyway. Why why wouldn't they all show up and then all the owners come out afterwards? It'd be like he's not good and nobody there from the media could be like we saw it because you know what I'm saying. There's only they would control the narrative. As far as that's concerned I understand like why couldn't the owners allow the media in there because you know what I'm saying there was something that is everybody's a little to kind of blade here like. Why couldn't they have bent on that and said look we're GONNA ALLOW ESPN to cover it? We're GONNA Lau one play. NFL NETWORK NFL network is is the one place it's going to be allowed to cover. Why couldn't the NFL network? Lean on the owners. You get down to. Hey let's cover this thing we're gonNA shoot. We're going to record this because I think they didn't want him to get that important To be that important this to go away and so that it Bagi with that I agree with a lot of that and I feel like he was just trying to take his power back and move it to this this place now the execution of it is what everyone was happy more and then they were talking about the shirt that he wore A. It's like yeah I mean is but but it's like you said like on certain on a certain level just wear plain shirt man. Don't let anything if I'm him and this is what talk about the don't let anything get get in the way of what you're trying to do any if you WANNA get back in the league right but what is it. What what can you do more? Where could he do more good for whatever he's trying to do? Is it in the League or is it against the league in moments like this. That's the question. Well I mean when the play okay so there but I feel like the thing that he was taking a knee for is still occurred. Yes and so what he took me for. I don't really see anyone of influence and power addressing doing doing doing the best they could to try to address it. You know what I mean early. Yeah he has brought awareness to it To some people who weren't ready to see it or hear it and then so now you gotta deal with the time it takes for people cheaper to go through all of that but I don't know what more we can dummy. He's not working in that. I don't know how much money you got like from from Nike. Achey should have gotten a lot and yeah and I think you know. But that's the whole thing.

Hammer is going to be speaking the next day because they would have music exco up and then in between the music acts different. <hes> people would tell other stories of of people in recovery of how because that's the thing I've learned you never say somebody is an ex addict there in recovery because really you're always an addict. The addiction is always there. It's just now your recovery so they had all these people in recovery that spoke in between the music acts and would tell their give their testimony until her story and Chris was one of the people that was going to be speak him and so you had thousands on top of thousands of people there for the concert outdoor concert but then they had like a private tent where the artists could hang out and then you know sponsors and everything and they were serving food and and stuff like that no drinks no drinks in the recovery ten I almost said food and drinks drinks water soda juice Gatorade but Christmas people speak in so that's what we met that day and then we exchanged info and we stayed in touch and actually got him to come the my high school a year later to speak speak at my high school as part of my my T._v..

There's rapists. There's murderers, there's people going through a lot worship that me trying to get a part in a movie. So I'm not gonna ask for anybody's prayers. Just good thoughts. Well wishes that's what I want out of this. But that movie can you tell I want it? I really want this part, hopefully, hopefully it'll happen if not I get it that is what it is. But I think he just put you keep putting out there in the universe and events. He comes back to you. That's the philosophy. I have you just keep putting out there and keep trying to grind in the Vince -ly it comes back to you, but not what you think, like, okay, I'll give an example for barbershop.

I knew everything about the movie because I wanted the part so bad just like an over thing about fatherhood, but because I really wanted this part, but I really want this part, but I ended up working with Tim, eventually, on a movie that was bigger than barbershop, like, membership huge.

But yeah as little Fender bender today. And I guess the the the big news of the week was John singleton passing away his family's taking. Him off life support. And it just got me thinking like I've run into John probably twenty times in my life. Good guy. Nice guy. We talked a few times never got the opportunity to work with them. But once it's weird when when someone passes away, that's when you start to think about all their accomplishments and life in what they've done, you just it's like, it's a time to reflect love you'll say, we gotta give people love why they're here. And we I think a lot of times you do give people love whether here, but well, somebody passes away. That's when you start to reevaluate somebody's life. And I was thinking the the movies that made the biggest impact on me as far as John singleton was obviously.

I kinda the same. Yeah. But it's a little different. Like a lot of people have different takes about us. And I thought that was that was bring on his part angry that is brilliant on his part. So. Goes. But you didn't like it. I just thought it was okay. Okay. Not like an okay, just two different things. Like, there's some movies. I had turned all fix. Okay. Sixers and band that was that's a d. No one to ten. Yeah. We'll get out was there's a ni-. Yeah. But but but as far as we're rating, the movie itself was a six, but the fact that he makes you think and wonder and ask questions that was a ten. The acting was a tin is good, man. God, she's good. I think the father has some great comedy relief. Who's he the the data in the movie that was from the Black Panther? Are. We as disrespectful you. We should probably you should probably research that frequently podcast show. We I know Know who's. who's at the garden by panther. Oh, wow. Chevy bozeman. Yeah. Michael b Jordan was the dad, right? No right now, the kids are good. He was everybody was what the the white day was funny as shit in that movie the dance. Yeah. Yeah.

"But it was a weird kind of scary. It wasn't like I can't ever be at home like that pet cemetery movie that they are advertising. Scare and so I will ever ever see that. This was like. Oh, no like fake scary. I don't know. It wasn't like it wasn't what I was able to see it. And it was fine. But houses, okay? But you know, what? The here's the problem with with Jordan Peele is get out. Well, no, he set the bar so high with get out it's hard to come in. He should have made like Kiana to where did like a a slapstick comedy. 'cause man when you come out like with get out as your first direct to'real writer debut almost like Shalam on when he did the six cents. Yeah. It's like dude the bar so fricking high. It's like nothing you can do is going to compare to. But the, you know, the studio don't really care. There's like look everyone's gonna go see this, right? Let's make money off this, right? But then when I read the Congo. See it I want to be supportive. So I want you to go and see it. Well, you can't say you don't like a movie, and then tell people to go see it. You are not me. So you may really enjoy able to kind of like, can you really enjoy the movie I am just saying for me. It was. All right. That's what I would like to say. But please go see it. Avas good. I didn't believe they're like I want my money back. It was not as good as listen. It's was not as good as get out. And I wish more people could be honest and just say that just say, hey, hey, this movie's really good it's gonna make you think you're probably gonna wanna see it twice. But it's probably not gonna be as good as get. You the only person I've ever heard say something like that was the creator of breaking bed, the creator breaking bad said, look, we're doing better call Saul. And it's a really good show. But listen, it is not breaking bad. He didn't say it was as good or word. He goes in a break in bed. So he basically said look don't be going there with expectations break in band. It's a really honestly breaking basil all time favorite shows. But better call Saul is frigging, really good. Not as good as breaking bad. But a really good show that I enjoy watching a lot. But you wish people would say that and not the not to throw Kevin Hart on the bus. But I'll just do it real quick. Okay. When Kevin does when he does movies, and he makes comments like we have raised the bar. All this one's shaping up to be something special. I feel like Kevin like Kevin. Let's just be honest your best movers. Think like a man it was by far that movie, there's no holes in that movie. The movie where he's carrying from the okay? Why that's not a comedy though. And I'm sorry. I'm just talking about comedy. Yeah. The upside. Yeah. I wanna see. No. Yeah. It's really good. It's really good. I watched it on the plane, actually. But let's just be honest. The best movie think like a man, and I'm a little biased because I was in it. I'm a little biased..

It really did the French toast. Thank you guys for that. Thank you. So anyways. Let's let's go to something fan lighter this ladder. Oh, there's definitely liner. We went and saw the movie us, I still got questions. And this is another good thing about social media. We go see the movie us, I walk other confuses shit. And also, and I make a postal my Instagram about the movie and people just broke it down in the comments. And I was like, oh, oh, yeah. That's why the Rapids. They're the tethered were eating them. Got it. Can you say spoiler? What she used a spoiler. There's not that many people. This is be real it ain't like millions or watching this podcast lab right now. Spoiler alert. We're good trust. It made seventy million. It's probably over one hundred billion by now more fun. You know? So the four of you that are listening there may be a few spoilers. Yeah. But here's the here's the thing. Jordan, Peele, his brain works. So far ahead of everybody else's because now I wanna see the movie again that it's been broken down to me. And I can watch it again and realize some of the some of the comments and the like when the four tethered people showed up the red that's on the red. And the you know lupita was talking to herself as the lady red. She was making statements that now when you watch like, oh, oh that makes sense. Oh, okay. So it was it was interesting, man. So my okay, I don't get because I don't want to spoil anything is. You know, like so everything that's going on with me in delta and people being sold supportive. You know peel being a, you know, a black writer director. Reducer. I loved get out. I want to be supportive to. I like the movie about. Okay. I'm sorry. It was just okay. It's me. Now.

"I said hold on. So I want to play you kidding me? I am. I am on this flight. There's no way I'm on this flight. And I'm like so now see has the now take my ticket and let me on the plane. So I said, and I'm on the phone, I go. Oh, yeah. Forgot Diane told me to call. He said literally, she goes, she'll, sir. Grow up, but behind me. So now, I'm in line waiting to get on the plane, right? And the guy behind these dying laughing, and I go I'm sitting here looking at everybody. I can't go on this flaming this is crazy. I made it and then she took she ripped up motherfucker. So that's what I'm saying that wasn't a racial issue. But it was an interaction between the white the black lady that I could have been like all the black ticket agents at delta all bad. No. That was just one lady that had to any. What's crazy? I still see her. I to this day remembers. I don't know that was like five years ago. That was hysterical though. I can't believe I got on Sar grow up. When I told the lady only hundred Dan told me to call. She was so pissed got an my luggage made it boom, my luggage. Megan, and I made it both of them. But you know, that was just again that was this lady having a bad day the way she talked to me though with. So like, I was looking are like look, I'm diamond on delta fly every week. I know the rules. I probably know the rules more than most of the flight attendants and then our ticket agents. I'm sorry, and oh she was hot. She was hot or the guy behind me. We laughed the whole way. Even when I got off the plane. He just looking at me, he was still laughing. So I mean, there's always going to be when you get over eighty thousand employees newsflash. Yeah. There's bad apples. There's going to be there's going to be. There are some racist employs at delta on both sides without question eighty thousand employees. Hopefully, I hope this guy is a racist. Hoping learn from it, and I hope he. Realized that the era of his Wade's in. I wanna things that I did tell the delta delta rep that I had been speaking to over the last couple of days, and that's today. But are the last couple of days was I hope if he gets any, you know, one of the lessons. I hope he gets out of this is that you just you don't know who people know, and you know, so don't try to judge people by how they're dressed in. You know, what I mean, he probably had no idea saying something like that would be here. Like delta call in his house. You know that we will be where we are. But you cannot just look at people anymore and kind of figure out who they know the type of life. They're living with Bill Gates period. Would get Bill Gates who who's the guy in Nebraska this loaded for forget his name drawn a blank, Warren Buffett. Oh, look at Warren Buffett. He still lives in the same house. He's always lived in Warren Buffett's still eats Dairy Queen on. On tuesdays. That's his day his house when you go to Omaha is right there on the street. Right. Just look and there's Warren Buffett. Yeah. Then when I got it goes like university of Nebraska gains, just in the stands like in the sixteenth row. Not a sweet he's not courtside. Honestly, if I was via as money I'd be courtside or sweet. I'm just gonna I'm sorry. I'm gonna I'm gonna enjoy the perks of my labor. You know what I mean? But you yeah. You can't is a book by its cover at all any, you know. He clearly clearly I don't know if you had a bad day with a black person that day that week. I don't know if his team lost an w tournament and a black guy hit the game winning shot. Maybe not maybe isn't a morning person. I don't know. But don't listen. Sometimes you cannot some people should not be on the customer service industry, and you cannot God dang, wait. Whether it's waiters. My son is so loud behind us plane of video game. Hold on us.

"It was closest to the desk. So everybody was using that. But my thing is if your issue was you are blocking access to this aircraft. Why wouldn't you say there why when he just say excuse me, ma'am, you're blocking access to the aircraft? Why would he ask me if I was in first class? You know, I just don't get it. And I was really I was really disappointed by the statement. Because in our conversation, she they were, you know, she came across like, they were only owning it. But in a statement, it was like me and my sixteen Masic seen year old daughter. This is because of us, and you know, I don't know how I'm moving forward now. Because my intent was never to make a statement. You know, just just do right? I did. And now, I feel like I've been in a position because of their statement to defend, you know, myself and my sixteen year old daughter like I just don't understand what could have been different. And I am like I just really disappointed by the statement. So then they expanded the statement. And in the new statement, I don't even know if they said, he did ask her, you know, did her. She was a profile. I was clearly profile leisurely. Well, here's there's me flying a lot in me making the statement. And I it was funny because some people said like delta doesn't care Delta's raises. The delta isn't racist. There's I mean, they have eight over eighty thousand employees, and I would I would I would guess. I would guess twenty thirty thousand employees are black. I'm just guessing because I've I have Atlanta. It's ninety percent of the people were black and Atlanta that work at delta. So I don't think it's a racist company. I just think this one dude that for whatever reason had a bad day. I don't I don't want to say he's racist, maybe at a racial moment. But I got it. Like what what is the solution to me would have been easy? If he would have just went either covers tracks ask the white do behind you. If he's in first or. Realize he was wrong. Oh my God. I man I could see how that could look like, I was profound you. I'm very sorry. That wasn't my not my intention. Then it's it's done. A lot of times you give people. They're having a bad day at work. And they they take it out on the the customers. You know, what I mean, like, it's not it's not it's not the ticket agents fault that they're you know, there's people in line that are route. It's not there's there's not a lot of overhead space. It's not just, you know, just not their fault. But they get the brunt of it a lot of times it ticket agents. I'm always, and you are too. I mean, obviously, I'm married to you. But we're always, very polite. Everybody. Very polite. I just disagree. I think the experience I had clearly made me feel like. There was some races overtures and my experience that morning. So it was either racism or classism at its finest. But it it was it was just not good. It was not good. And I'm not saying this is my issue. So I I I was saying delta clearly is not a racist company. But after the statements and switching blame to blame myself and mine teenager means is it a culture of this like within the company because if they would've never made this statement, I wouldn't be making my statement, if they would would've made a statement that said that we are, you know, sorry that this happened to them, and blah, blah, blah without ever trying to say I'm standing in the wrong place when it's boarding time. When my ticket or you know, just some excuse, and that's all it was. Because he wouldn't come at me like that. So now, it's like I feel like you're spinning it. So maybe they don't care. That's that. That's where I'm at right now. I'm just really disappointed in the NFL like so after that incident, you know, I'm talking to the woman from delta. And you know, I'm buying it was she saying, you know, hook line, and sinker. And you know, and then they may turn around like almost like I was contained like jump get on her while we do this. And I think.

Why receivers do why receivers are football? Why receivers the divas of the NFL? My father, and he just played that diva behavior and got out of they want to be in Pittsburgh anymore. Came got a got a contract with Oakland Raiders who's going to be in Vegas next year. And if you think Antonio Brown, you think Vegas more than team you and Tony Brown. You think Miami LA or Vegas, and he got to go. So it was gonna play in Oakland for one year, which is a great city, which we live in AM. Then he gets to go to Vegas am he guy like more money? So he got like some godly of fifty million contracts like thirty main guaranteed fifty million thirty minute guarantee. He just went out to Pittsburgh hardy, nixed the trade to buffalo. He wanted Pittsburgh interesting Tonio Brown. So I watched the shop on HBO and great show with LeBron and all them and Antonio was on last week. And I sent him at the m saying really enjoyed. Watching you on the shop, and it was nice to see your side of things because lots you get one side of things he made a lot of sense. He goes, I was never a problem. Then the minute I started to quote, unquote, be problem. They change the narrative on me as far as what kind of teammate. I was what kind of player I was. And he goes up to that point. I wasn't. And that is true. Like NFL teams in NBA teams in baseball and everything else if they really want to put out some bad things about you. They can 'cause I think every NFL room anything has a not gonna get along all the time..
