"Was censored she was called a liar by politifact. Politic the objective centre-right backtracking. Checking right. now it's left-wing why did they call her a liar. I know because they said now. The media called the race and looks like he's going to get all these boats candidates did not just roll over. Candice lawyered up threatened to sue them and politifact off pretty rare correction. She offered this correct. They offer this question. They said whoopsie daisy. We've gone back and looked and said. Oh yes we've now corrected this okay. Well this is important because these fact checking websites quote unquote. Left-wing websites like like politifact or involved in determining what gets censored on social media platforms so social media platforms. Pretend that they've got these neutral fact checkers. Who are you know. And they throw their hands up in the air but no they partner with these left-wing organizations and so we've got to push back and you know what if you push back against them. You're going to fail. Not just nine at ten times probably failed ninety nine out of one hundred times but if you just keep it up eventually eventually you might succeed. You can also vote with your feet right right. Now we've learned that hewlett packard is leaving california. They announced this on. Tuesday hewlett packard is currently located in san jose california they were gonna move to texas. Why because texas imposes zero point. Seven five percent franchise tax business margins. California imposes an eight point. Eight five percent corporate tax eight point eight five percent not to mention. The texas has no individual income tax compared to california's current top rate of thirteen point. Three percent. Which is now expected to rise to sixteen point three percent very soon state tax. We moved to to tennessee right now. I'm in washington dc. Because we're we shot. Episodes verdict with senator ted cruz. By when i go back to tennessee. I will not be paying state income taxes very important stuff because there are a lot of people fleeing california state tennessee texas. They're filling up because you can vote with your feet now. Is that going to change the culture overnight. No but there were these modest gains that you can make it. If you just show that you're going to back down that will have a far greater effect. Maybe than you expect. If you look these crooks in the i say. I think i won this election. I think that the system for a number of reasons was made vulnerable to fraud and not just that. But it was illegitimate and in some cases in pennsylvania was unconstitutional. The way it was set up. And i think that we need to challenge this election in the courts. And you keep that up and you look and they say no. We're gonna take it from you know where biden's going to win no according to the system and you look and you say okay. I'm going to keep fighting but you know what if you beat me on this bat. I'll see you again in four years. I'm not giving up. Do not give up no matter. How daunting the odds. Michael knowles this.

"Ravens, so I don't know if anybody saw it, But I was like shit for that, John tapes him also, I watched it. Okay? And I mean, they were apparently missing a lot of players because because of Coben, So it did seem that you know a lot of the talk on the whole thing. And but a lot of the talk. I mean, John did a lot of talking about how it's so stupid that they played that game. And, you know they've got an extra week at the end of the year, and that every 18 people down is like watching this game. Even count blah, blah, blah. Was really fun to watch. Super fun. That was a pre pre bike ride party. Then I guess it was after that was, you know, after we came back home, and John put the game on and said Let's watch this. We lost power for a while last night, but I ended up for a few minutes anyway, seeing something the mask singer. Oh, And so they push out this this guy in a mask, and he starts to Andy's up behind a piano, and I'm like on its and he's but he's got a mask on and I'm like, I think I know who that guy is. Um what? What was he dressed as he was wearing a suit with just a mask. Like of somebody's face? No, just covering his face, But it turns out and I want to say his name's Craig Robertson. But I'm sure I'm wrong. I recognized him from a few of the mood like from a Group of movies that he's done with the guy from C. I don't even know any of these guys names anyway. He's going to be the new host when they pulled his mask off after he saying there like I just wanted to announce I'm going to be the host of the masked dancer. And I went, What are they do it like? I guess it's big enough that they now will have a masked dancer show hosted by this guy, unless that was a joke, which isn't funny. It wasn't I bet they're doing a master. Why the hell wouldn't they? They honestly they productions of ground Warhol. They're desperate for anything. You know, that does seem like a show. I'd probably enjoy The worst part of that show is the judges. We're the judges right now. Uh, Ken Jeong Mm hmm. Nicole Scherzinger. Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke. But they're just not damn day, four judges, and so what do they just not great. They're going for punches and they don't hit and you know they're clearly trying to Stay within the time limit and be funny, and they're not good. And I think the report that they have on the voice is much better where you can see that these people like each other and they were working off each other, and we don't have time constraints. They just doesn't feel really written like they've clearly been given a line to say here or I can't say that I've watched enough to know that I just know what I have seen missed, and I just thought All right. Look, I don't need to watch it. The mast answer is to premiere on December 27th. So it's legit. Okay? Who's the host? Doesn't say, um Craig Roberts. Robinson Robinson. Okay, that he was in the office you played Darryl. Oh, Was he also a hot tub? Time machine? Yes, that's the movie, right? I know e weather movies with the group. That group of guys like he's in. He's in a few things. He's very funny, but I was like, and I think he's also in Walmart commercials with his piano. That Z kind of why I recognized. I see. I know that guy. I think he knew she was inspired by a segment on Ellen. I guess she did that for a while. The masked dancer dancer, huh? Ellen's got her name on another TV show. Alan, isn't that wonderful? She should have the money. Yeah, I mean, hello. She only got $75 million for her place in medicine. You know, I mean, They say Hewlett Packard is the beginning of the Silicon Valley. Hewlett Packard. Oh, is that so? The roots ST Hugh Bill Hewlett and David Packard back to 1939 founding their company in a Palo Alto garage. I am and they are officially announcing They're moving headquarters from California. That's right. God, the Oh my God. The team. That's the company that started it all is moving their business to Houston. They say they're not going to have to do a bunch of layoffs that they'll just be, you know, replacing people either from home or moving them to Texas. Well, that's very that's actually Kind of scary H p E. As it's known. Hewlett Packard Enterprise joins a number of major companies that have moved headquarters out of the Bay Area. Texas apparently is much More cost efficient, I guess is the way to put that at a lot of land there. Charles Schwab plans to officially moved its headquarters from San Francisco to the Dallas area next month. And I know someone who worked for them. Actually it shoot his wife. And she's She was moved to Colorado years ago in their effort to get out of the Bay Area, so it seems like that's Cost a lot to be here. I can see why, cos you know, I mean, You see Google buying everything up, so they're not leaving, But they're gonna own most. The land around here. You're done. No. Google town. Okay, Google Jose or something? Anyway, this story I thought you'd find interesting. This is about homemade Home makeover recipients. And what a nightmare. Those shows are my I show me a nightmare.

"You can also order it online. It has recently expanded. The long drink has into Florida and Arizona and California. It has been a hit now for quite some time in Texas, which is home to my next guess. Congressman Dan Crenshaw, Republican from the Lone Star state, author of Fortitude. American Resilience in the Era of outrage is here. Congressman Welcome back to the show. Good video they doing? I'm doing well. I'm excited to talk about this project that you've now teased. We loved a couple months ago. Your pre election Texas Reloaded movie trailer where you guys were all sort of Action heroes getting ready to save Texas from the lives and make sure that you guys held down the fort in that state in crucial congressional races, and it looks like you're going to take that show on the road to Georgia here shortly for all the reasons we've been talking about here. For weeks Now, With the Georgia run offs looming before we shift over to Georgia, let's look backwards at the state of Texas. The president carried Texas Senator Cornyn. Comfortably won re election. There were a number of targets that the Democrats have peppering the state of Texas toe pick off Republican seats in the House, if you would, as we are evaluating the Texas Reloaded project Let us know how things turned out for the Democrats in Texas. You know, I hope to give up at this point. I think they're blue ways that a pretty solid red wall. Um you know they have their hopes up for years, and the reality is that the Republicans simply ignored it. And that gave the Democrats of an opening right. They felt like we're ignoring it. They say. It's sort of cheesed. I'm a little bit, but we did pay attention This time way sounded the alarm. Quite a bit. There is a lot of money. We took it seriously, and as a result, I think we pushed them back pretty hard. Um, some still won by six points, even though pulling out of debt, even with fighting. Issued a Republican win Texas More than that, Yes, absolutely. We We know past the bubbles. You candidates have definitely wanted more. It is the president was still lagging and in the suburbs of major cities in Texas, so that accounts for why that happened. But overall, it was so pretty clear and decisive when the shockingly two huge increases in Republican support in South Texas these Hispanic areas that are really tired of this open border talk You know, Democrats forget that Hispanic Americans are Americans and they they're immigrants that came here legally. They worked hard to get their citizenship and they don't really like the idea that everybody else gets cut in front of them in line. And Democrats just completely forget that. What's it going against the Democratic platform? See exactly people understand that in California accidents in California is the best place to look for progressive list list of policy platform and it's a disaster. Everybody knows it. Um and even Democrats Church realized that many Californians are leaving. Hewlett Packard just announced moving its headquarters to Houston and gas saw them, though, that we've seen Yeah, we've seen this a regular occurrence on gone every single metric. Texas is a better place to be business a better place to raise your family safer than California. Every cost of living is better. The tax system is better, more free to open your business to hire people to work as you want to start your labor as you want. So this is this is really compelling there certain policies that work and there's certain policies that don't those policies that do work tend to be conservative and the policies that don't work. Going to be progressive, and you know how much they tell you. No, no, no. I think that policy and actual outcomes are a huge part of the Texas miracle as they call it, And what we always argue to folks is if you're leaving your state Because of failures in that state that you can't handle any more. Please, if you are fleeing to somewhere with a better environment. Vote accordingly don't keep electing the types of people that ended up driving you out of your state, and it seems like at least a lot of the people who have fled to Texas have taken that to heart. And when you look at the numbers from the 2020 election, I know they came after you. Hard They raise a lot of money against you. And they were hoping to maybe upend you. That didn't happen. He won handily in the district around Houston. There were also a number of races with Bull's eyes on them for the Democrats across your state, and what's remarkable Congressman is they did not gain a single Seat in Texas. Not one. I mean they had maybe what? Half a dozen on their list of potentially winnable seats. They went over, the Republicans swept and it turns out that there were But three or four it's looking like three at least pick ups in California for the Republicans, zero for the Democrats in Texas. That's not exactly the narrative that we were spoon fed. Month after month from the media, was it Right? Yeah, it's been really into level toe. Watch the Democrat Confidence kind of fall apart and try to figure out what went wrong. I could spell that out. Either their policy ideology is insane. That's what went wrong. It's It's really not that big of a secret. Andre can't escape it. They're doubling down on it and the most horrid of ways and so good luck with that, guys. We're gonna We're gonna question 2022. And But that's exactly right. Really excited to see what happened in California. Um, bond, I think those they barely one, but, uh, but I think those members are all really great numbers, and they're gonna hold on to those seats, especially in nearly 2022. I think. Well, I think we'll do better and even better in Texas next time. So you know again, it's pretty clear that the American people generally speaking, we projected the policy platform of the last thing they saw with Democrats were doing in Congress will last two years. There was an overwhelming rejection of that think it's pretty August and that brings us to Georgia. You have released a mini trailer sort of continuing the plot. From Texas. Reloaded is now Georgia Reloaded. You've got the website up. Georgia Reloaded calm, You're gonna be playing there. A lot of major Republicans are rushing to the ramparts to help in Georgia to Senate run offs control of the U. S senate hanging in the balance. From your perspective. What What are the stakes? In these races that will be decided on the fifth of January. Put everything you know. Then it's for control of the entire Congress. Right, so pretty pretty well in the house, but we didn't win. Um, And that's because he's still the speakers. So Wait need to keep much for couples as the Senate majority here, it's everything you can't have the potential of a Kamala Harris of the tie breaking vote. So we're gonna let me see. We're gonna put everything into it. I will be there this weekend. All of the places I'll be and all the events taking place in Georgia. We're gonna start to publish. Those on the website goes a little calm, so noble will be that's still a little bit of the schedule that loose right now, but I'll be there Saturday and Sunday. I'll be there on more dates than that. In the future. We will let people know, but it's everything..

"That that healthcare is a human right but the way that the affordable care act is structured is that it's paid for in part by taxes on the wealthy, and so if you remove the affordable care act, you give rich people a great big tax cut. So that's why they're doing this. They're they're doing this because they don't believe that health we deserve healthcare and also they wanNA give more money to their rich donors. And speaking of those rich donors I mean how how many millions go into healthcare lobby to keep it private to keep it privatize to keep. To keep. A healthcare for profit, which is just such a terrible. It's just it's it makes no sense to do that because then you incentivize to be keeping people sick and dying. Yeah I. Mean every other country has figured out a better system than ours and still here we are espn we claim to be the leaders in everything. You know we're number one in a contest no one else entered. So it's sort of discouraging Is there anything else that you would like to add though anything else that we could or should be doing not just between well between now and the election, and of course, afterwards just make sure to talk about this election with your friends and family and what this means because everyone healthcare is at stake in most people are not even aware of that yet.

Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?

Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?

"Donald J trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred and fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. So that's the lead. In this is in reporting from New York Times Sunday afternoon by investigative reporters Russ Butner Suzanne Craig, and Mike Macintyre now Russell Suzanne incidentally or two of the three that dropped the huge story on trump's finances in October of two thousand, eighteen ahead of the midterm elections. and that was fueled by the financial documents provided by Mary trump who is now suing the president and his siblings by the way for defrauding her out of millions of dollars. But back to today's story from the New York Times quote. The New York Times has obtained tax return data extending over more than two decades for Mr Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. This article offers an overview of times findings. Additional articles will be published in the coming weeks. So this one, hundred and ninety two paragraph long story is an overview of the times findings. this is the sparks notes the abridged version the Reader's digest abridged story. And I'm GonNa go over the key highlights with you. Hundred Ninety two paragraphs is the overview of what they found. And they're going to be releasing multiple stories in coming weeks for details about what they've uncovered an important caveat here by their very nature, the filings will leave many questions on answered. These tax returns that they got many questions will be unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the irs not the findings of an independent financial examination they report the trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth nor do they reveal any previously on reported connection to Russia? This kind of makes sense why Sivan's needs the documents, right These data simply report revenue not profit in two, thousand eighteen for example, trump announced his disclosure in his disclosure that he had made at least four, hundred, thirty, four, point, nine, million dollars. The tax records deliver a very different portrait of his bottom line forty seven point four, million dollars in losses. So he announced his disclosure, he made four hundred and thirty, five million. In here it says he lost forty seven point four million. To that's what he filed his taxes as. All of the information that times obtain was provided by sources with legal access to it. So we can. Try to guess. WHO This to the New York Times prior to the election maybe somebody on the case who knew that the case wouldn't be Sort of we wouldn't see any fruits of that until after the election. I don't know I'd be guessing. These tax data examined. by The Times, provide a roadmap of revelations from write offs for the cost of criminal defense lawyer a mansion used by the family retreat to a full accounting of the millions of dollars that the president received from the twenty thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. So that's kind of a Russian dealing. The apprentice may trump a total of four, hundred, twenty, seven, point, four, million, which he then invested in a collection of businesses that we're failing mostly golf courses. They steadily devour cash much as the money he secretly received from his father the and how that financed spree of quixotic overspending that led to his collapse in the ninety. the picture that perhaps emerges most starkly from the mountain of figures and tax schedules prepared by Mr Trump's accountants accountants. MAZAAR. Clue. Probably got this from the Manhattan Da Somebody there. This is the picture that emerges starkly is of a businessman president in a tightening financial vice. Most of trump's core enterprises from his constellation of golf courses to conservative magnet. Hotel in Washington I guess it draws conservatives. They all report losing millions if not tens of millions of dollars year after year. His revenue from the apprentice and from licensing deals drying up and several years ago he sold nearly all the stocks that now might have helped him plug holes in his struggling properties and tax looms. And within the next four years more than three, hundred, million in loans and obligations for which he's personally responsible personally will come do. Over the next four years. And these records show the actual and potential conflicts of interest created by trump's refusal to divest himself of his business interest. While in the White House his properties have become havens for collecting money directly from lobbyists, foreign officials, and others seeking facetime access or favors. The record for the first time, put precise dollar figures on these transactions. Here's some examples at the Mar, a Lago Club, a flood of new members starting in two thousand fifteen allowed him to pocket an additional five, million a year from the business people paying for access at his Durrell Golf Course in Miami. The roofing materials manufacturer GIF spent at least one point, five, million in two, thousand, eighteen even has as its industry was lobbying the trump administration to rollback egregious federal regulations conflict. In two thousand Seventeen Billy Graham vandalistic association paid about four hundred thousand dollars to the Washington Hotel where the group held at least one event during its four day World Summit in defense of persecuted Christians. Then when he took office Mr Trump said he would pursue no new foreign deals as president. Even. So in his first two years in the White House is revenue from abroad till seventy three, million dollars. And while much of that money was from his golf properties in Scotland and Ireland some came from licensing deals in countries with authoritarian leaning leaders or thorny geopolitics. For example, three million from Deteriora- from the Philippines two point three, million from India and one million from Turkey. Now the data also contains. Revelations about the one hundred, thirty, thousand dollars payment to Stephanie Clifford Stormy Daniels. The, which is one of the focuses of the Manhattan da Subpoena for trump's tax returns. Another financial information another clue that that might be where they got this. However. They say that it has no new revelations, but there is kind of a revelation because trump has acknowledged reimbursing cohen. Who made the? Payoff. But the materials obtained by The Times did not include any itemize payments to Cohen. The amount however could have been improperly included in legal fees written off as a business expense which are not required to be itemized tax returns that says to me. That trump. Didn't make the payoff where he would have had to have itemize it. Which says to me. It was improperly recorded. As a business transaction. At for legal fees, which is another thing to Manhattan as looking at. Business fraud. Falsifying business documents. Now, no subject has provoked more intense speculation about trump's finances than his connections to Russia while the tax records revealed no previously unknown financial connection and for the most part lack specificity required to do. So they did shed light on the money behind the two thousand thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow at the subject of Enduring Intrigue Because of subsequent investigations into Russia's interference in two thousand sixteen. So basically what the time saying here is that there's nothing itemized here about Russia, but there wouldn't be because it's not required to be in tax returns but boy, did we see something interesting about the? Miss Universe Pageant in twenty thirteen. The records show that the pageant was the most profitable Miss Universe during trump's time is co owner and that generated a personal payday of two point three million dollars made possible by the Aguilara F- family at least in part who would later help set up the infamous twenty sixteen trump tower meeting. For. Officials seeking dirt on Clinton with Veselnitskaya who is now we know connected directly to the Kremlin. The record show that in two thousand thirteen to paget reported thirty one point six, million in gross receipts. That's the highest since at least the nineties allowing trump and his co owner NBC's split the profits of four point seven million by comparison trump and NBC lost two million on the deal the year before. Moscow and made three point eight million from the one the year after. So it appears the Russia one. Made money and made a lot of money a lot more money than it ever has before. So did. Russia overpaid trump for this event. Wonder why? In Two thousand, thirteen?

Michelle Obama: "Vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it"

"Democrats have opened their national convention, virtually five of the United States of America. Joe Biden's Biden's grandkids grandkids kicked kicked off off proceedings proceedings with with the the Pledge Pledge of of Allegiance Allegiance a a choir choir of of people people from from each each state, state, then then saying saying the the national national anthem anthem Headline Headline Speaker Speaker Michelle Michelle Obama Obama stressed stressed the the importance importance of of voting for Joe Biden. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden, like our lives depend on it. I know Joe. He is a profoundly decent man. Guided by faith. Obama accused President Trump of downplaying the Corona virus crisis for too long, she argues Trump's response to the outbreak has been marked by chaos division and in her words. Total and other utter lack of empathy. A group of Republicans spoke out against President Trump at the Democratic Convention, the number of Republicans included to John Kasich. The former Ohio governor, who said the U. S is on a path of division and dysfunction. Former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman said former vice President Biden could get the US back on track, not Donald Trump. Former Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman also spoke Republican and a longtime CEO. And let me tell you, Donald Trump has no clue how to run a business, let alone an economy. So members of the Illinois congressional delegation have their own virtual meeting to talk about issues facing the country, a little U. S Senator Dick Durbin says when it comes to the middle class. It's time to get back to the base and whether we're talking about a living wage. Whether we're talking about card check membership efforts for protection in the workplace, time and again, we've got to come back to basic principles. Mayor Lightfoot was part of a round table discussion yesterday on social justice with Biden. She says economic empowerment gives people a feeling that they have a stake in their own future. And that will create a lasting change.

Obviously we're talking coast to coast I'm here in Los Angeles, and you're on the eastern side of the US and were doing this by way of Zoom. So it's not in the studio, but it allows some long distance conversation really in much the same way that you probably deal with. So many of the collectors nowadays things have certainly changed for all of us in the way that we communicate and weighed. The options are being held virtual car shows everything's changed slightly only. It's just for short periods. We'll talk about some of those things both the short-term effects maybe some of the long term positive benefits that come from this, it's hard to imagine there are any, but they're actually might be but instead of going forward in time, let's go back in time for a second. Let me just ask you the obvious. Question a lifetime love affair with cars, full classics, postwar sports, and racing cars, and probably even some modern collectibles. How did this car fixation begin when I was born into it? My father was founder the model a restorers club America back in nineteen fifty one year I was born cars were basically in our family from the beginning and then my dad restored cars for a living whether it was Duesenberg? Packard? As or buicks whatever they were my cousin built hot rods in a lean to next to my father's shop, and then a mile up the road was candy pools sports car shop where they had about every type sports car in the World Men Candy Pool is very famous race car drivers. So there was race cars, Ferraris Maserati. Oscars every type of car. That was rare stuff back then and I think that's how I got my ashes for everything to do with automobiles was brought up on every type of automobile. That's quite a broad swath. You Talk About Your Dad restoring everything from model as to Duisenburg's there couldn't be a wider gulf between those two and it's interesting. You mentioned that let's drill down into. That for just a second Wayne I often wonder the model a was such a ubiquitous machine, obviously the model t and then the model put Henry Ford on the map with a little company we call the Blue Oval but all the guys that actually treasure those cars and restore them and kept him alive for so many decades when they were well past. Their prime. It's very rare to see those cars any longer they sorta seems almost evaporated off the surface the earth they've become pretty popular again though in that era forcible way to get into the hobby and you could basically model for today from a catalog. So because of the ease of getting a apart the east of the restoration and the fun factor. With the driving aspect of it, I mean, these cars are a Lotta Fun to drive. Easy on reasonably priced. So we see model as actually their value and increasing summer bar. That's a great harbinger of things to come then because they really were sort of the cornerstone of the collector hobby back before guys can afford their full classics and all the fancy stuff from Europe. I starting going to Hershey with my dad and nine hundred, fifty, seven was six years old I think her she started either in fifty five, hundred, fifty, six does either liver fear second year, and then probably the third year I was there it became part. Of Our family, my dad created the model, a restorers club. He just come out of service in flight forty, eight and gentleman brought him a model a Ford to do some paint work on any restored to perfection for the gentleman brought it to local car show nine, hundred fifty and they wouldn't let him show it because they said that's just some old used car as nothing special and he got upset about that and went home and created the model, every stores America which thousands of people all over the world still supporting that club.

with it's DJ also mixes thinking meltdown through how we doing mix one of the both things that really great we artists called have been it working struck together in back the Detroit in March scene for I remember of Colleen a school backlash librarian probably in the last northern thirty Wisconsin years in talking DJ with minx her about was how one of she those doing first you know how out is there she feeling as about things in techno what were her concerns in the techno scene in her work for with teachers women she said look making there at waves the end of the day and she we are doing really everything helped to we lift can other women to who DJ support our in kids but that scene it sometimes and by just incredibly starting challenging her because own record kids label don't have

"Maintaining a computer in Nineteen ninety-one packar-bell would be the first company to sell computers with Intel's pentium processor as the CPU as well as the first to sell a computer with a CD ROM drive, so how was a budget PC company? Able to get out in front of its competitors? In this way on large part, it came back to those business relationships. I mentioned earlier. Customers would have conversations with salespeople in stores like sears, and those salespeople would report back and word would get. Get back up the chain to Packard Bell. About what customers liked what they didn't like what they were looking for. Company executives learned about how people wanted stuff like a machine capable of running a Rom, and that meant that one, and he had to be a pentium and two. They need to include CD ROMS or to meet that demand. It also helped that Packard Bell. Had established an extremely nimble manufacturing process. Everything was really efficient, and reportedly the company was even capable of assembling. Assembling machines running on one type of component in the morning, and then swap out there assembly line to cover a totally different set of components for a different model by lunchtime, so you can be making say a three eighty six computer in the morning and swap over to pentium by lunch. This is a big deal. Bigger companies couldn't move this fast, so packard bell was hearing about customer needs early and then able to respond to them faster than their larger competitors capable of doing. The company also tried out different desktop computer designs the general design. Philosophy was pretty industrial and utilitarian and boring. Around that time your standard computer was either a tower or a tabletop pc that took up a good amount of space. packar-bell introduced computers with smaller form factors, and they try to get away from the boring. Beige Tower design. However, we have to look at some of the bad stuff to sure. The company was aggressive and producing machines for much lower costs than the competition, but that doesn't mean the machines. Machines were good. If you do a search on packar-bell, you're GONNA. Find a lot of articles that name the company as the worst brand of PC's in the nineteen nineties, heck PC magazine in their top ten worst computers of all time listed all packard bell computers at number one, not a single model. They said Packard Bell in general was the worst PC, so what was actually going on while a big part of this had to do specifically with quality. A lot of customers were displeased with their purchases having. Components fail. The computer just wasn't working really well, but how much is a lot well? In nineteen, ninety two Packard Bell revealed that it had a return rate of about seventeen percent now the average in the market was closer to seven percent. So this was more than double the average so nearly twenty percent or nearly one out of every five computers were being returned to Packard Bell. So their reputation for unreliable computers wasn't exactly unearned now it didn't start out that way. The early computers were considered to be pretty reliable. They weren't exactly premium machines, but for the price they were serviceable, however as chip manufacturers, and really I guess I should just say Intel because that's what Packard Bell went with as Intel produced faster processors. packard-bell's quality began to slip Packard. Packard bell leaned hard on the Intel inside sticker that was placed on every computer because the Intel name gave a lot of cachet Packard Bell, and the general thought was that a cheap computer with an Intel processor is still better than an expensive computer with some other company's processor in like an amd processor, but that wasn't necessarily true. Is that was the perception on top? Top of that Packard Bell was using a lot of components that were you know a little odd Some of them were produced by other companies that the owners of packar-bell also just happened to own funny thing that this meant that when one of those parts failed as they frequently did. You couldn't just go and grab a replacement version off the shelf. You couldn't go. Go and get some generic power source. For example you had to order special parts, because those were the ones that would only work with those packard bell computers, and they were also typically fairly expensive. They also were not necessarily more reliable than the part. You replaced, so you might have to keep replacing the same part with the same machine if you stuck with it. That man, that packar-bell didn't get a whole lot of repeat business. People would get burned by, and then they'd say you know what I'm GonNa. Spend a little more money and go with one of the competitors. Magazines gave the computers bad reviews like I mentioned earlier there was a glut of models packard bell models on the market, and some of them were indistinguishable from each other. You could by essentially the same packard bell computer from sears, Walmart or circuit city, but each of those computers would have a different model number that indicated that it was A. A computer sold through this specific chain. Otherwise they were all identical, but it got confusing in nineteen, ninety, five, a French company Groupe bull made a deal with Packard. Bell that gave group Bull. Nearly twenty percent ownership of the company and another company and Japanese electronics company called NEC took pretty much. The rest of the ownership of Packard Bell and integrated packar-bell with an EC computers. This would turn out to be what we call a bad decision. See packar-bell was on the downward slope. The company's reputation shot. Everyone associated their computers as being cheap and unreliable. The bad reviews were killing sales and competitors were catching up in addition compaq, one of the big competitors to Packard Bell had been A. Packard Bell of building computers with recycled parts, but still selling the computers as if they were brand, new and comeback actually filed a lawsuit and stated that this was a case of unfair competition NEC would later settled this lawsuit out of court, but the damage was done in part because Packard bell executives consistently argued that using recycled parts really wasn't that big a deal. And why are you so upset? Man On top of that lawsuit? There were these new budget like low cost. P., companies that are coming out like E. Machines. Do you guys remember the machines? That also cut into Packard. Bell's game by nine, hundred, ninety eight alagem and NEC were no longer seeing eye to eye remember NEC came in essentially bought Packard Bell so alagem either left or was forced to leave Packard Bell, he would go on to become a real estate guy and he spent the last couple of decades, trying to build tall condos and Beverly Hills California not to very much success, any see kept pouring money into Packard Bell, but was on the losing side, dropping a couple of billion into the venture overall before they finally made the decision to shut down us. Entirely, and thus only sell packard bell branded machines in Europe so in two thousand. We saw Packard Bell goes away in the United States in two thousand six. NEC Sold Packard Bell to the person who used to own drum roll, please. E. Machines. Packard Bell was folded under a holding company called PB Holdings and Lenovo actually entered into talks to acquire this holdings company, and thus the Packard Bell brand, the following year in two thousand seven, but they were beaten to the punch by another company Acer so acer took on seventy five percent ownership of PB Holdings the company that owns the branded Packard Bell Acer was trying to prevent Lenovo from getting a foothold in the European market now recently here in the United States, a holding company called PBX Holdings purchased the Packard Bell Ip and. And you can actually find very cheap computers with the Packard Bell branding on them again in the United States, but these have no connection to any of the previous packard-bell's including the personal computers of the nineteen eighties nineteen nineties apart from the name now this again reminds me of Atari Atari. was accompanied that we got really big collapsed in on itself, then essentially had its parts sold off including the names, and after a while, the names were the only thing that really remained. There were no other components from the companies that actually. remained with it, it was just the brand name and you have to ask yourself. Is that really the same thing? If all, that's left. Is the name is? Does it have any meaning to it? And I guess you could argue that for marketing purposes it still does, but that is the Packard bell story, a really confusing weird one that is continuing kind of, but really it's like we keep seeing a different james bond right except every single. James Bond has absolutely no connection with any other. James Bond that's kind of how it works. Hope you guys learn. Learn something and enjoyed this episode like I said at the beginning.

"Had resigned from the board back in nineteen sixty two. He remained on as a sort of adviser for short while. Continue Davin office in the Los Angeles headquarters but he passed away in nineteen seventy. So how did Packard Bell come back as a brand in the nineteen eighties? And what connection did it have to this company? Well Inter- Benny Alagem. He was born in Israel in nineteen fifty three and he's generally pretty quiet about his personal history in fact he's also pretty quiet about his professional history and a lot of ways but he attended college in the United States studying engineering and business at the California State Polytechnic University in the nineteen seventies by the early nineteen eighties. He and two other Israeli American businessman Jason Barzilai and Alex Sandal formed a company called cal. Abc O. C. A. L. Dash ABC. Oh this was a wholesaler of computer components. Like memory chips. The early eighties offered a special opportunity for people who were in the computer business. And I've talked about this many times before. Ibm had dipped its corporate. Though in world of personal computers previously IBM and marketed almost exclusively to big businesses. But the company explored the PC market by building computers using off the shelf components. Kind of like the ones that cal adcose sold and landing a license with Microsoft for the DOS operating system. But here's the kicker IBM didn't secure an exclusive agreement with Microsoft which meant Microsoft could license that same operating system or a slight variation of it to any other computer manufacturer and since IBM was using off the shelf components rather than designing a proprietary machine built exclusively on IBM technology. This made it possible for anyone with the know how to build similar machines using a similar operating system and that would mean a customer could go out and buy a less expensive computer from some other manufacturer and still run the same software intended for the IBM machines. The first company to do this was compaq in nineteen eighty. Two other companies would follow suit and the era of the IBM clone PC began. We called them clones because they weren't made by IBM but they could run the same software that was designed for IBM computers but Alagem and his business partners saw another opportunity within this world. See these other companies that were making. Ibm PC's we're still aiming primarily at the business market and that might include some smaller businesses that otherwise would never have invested computers and not just big corporations but it was still largely a focus on productivity machines alagem and his partners saw the chance to market to the average American now to do it he would need a company that could build inexpensive computers at scale and at an efficiency that would allow him to sell PC's at a much lower cost than his competitors and he wanted a name for this company. That would give him a marketing edge. That name would be you guessed it Packard Bell now. I'm not sure if alagem was going after that name with the intent of muddying the waters. But I'm not not saying that that wasn't the case see the name Packard. Bell wasn't in frequent use by the nineteen eighties and it was easy to associate with other entities. One was bell labs the RND ARM OF AT and T. Another was Hewitt Packard. The Tech Company that had been around since nineteen thirty nine or you might even just associated with the original Packard Bell. The made radios. Tv's the marketing for the new PC. Company definitely leaned into this because their slogan was America. Grew up listening to us. It still does which you know seems to at least imply that this is the same company that was making radios and TV's back in the fifties and sixties but the truth is this new company had nothing to do with any of the other companies. But it did benefit from that association alagem purchased the rights to the Packard bell name from teledyne and the new Packard Bell Company established sometime around nineteen eighty five nineteen eighty-six another big step alagem made was to form partnerships with retailers typically to purchase a computer. You would have to go to like a hobby store or a computer store which could be pretty intimidating for the average person or you ordering direct from big business because you are placing an order for a company so in that case you like ordering tens or hundreds of computers not a single computer for a average person but Alagem saw the opportunity of reaching a broader customer base by selling computers through consumer retail stores like sears and Walmart and later on like best buy and circuit city. He started to form business relationships with these companies and secured agreements to sell Packard Bell. Pc's in their stores in return he would send Packard Bell employees to help train up the store staff on how to understand talk about an ultimately how to sell these. Pc's the new Packard. Bell would actually be a pioneer in a few fields early on so for example with early. Pc's it was pretty standard for a customer to have to install the operating system and any initial software themselves. You would get your computer home. You would have a whole bunch of disks for whatever operating system you're in you'd have to boot up into the biocine than load up the operating system. Computers didn't come with stuff preloaded on it back in those days. This was another barrier to entry for a lot of people. Not only were computers. Expensive it was intimidating to buy them and to set them up. So in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven Packard. Bell became the first. Ibm PC clone manufacturer to offer computers with a preloaded operating system and software. Bundle thus again lowering that barrier of entry the following year nineteen eighty eight. Packard Bell established a toll free support telephone line so customers could call and get help setting up or maintaining a computer in Nineteen ninety-one packar-bell would be the first company to sell computers with Intel's pentium processor as the CPU as well as the first to sell a computer with a CD ROM drive so how was a budget PC company able to get out in front of its competitors. In this way on large part it came back to those business relationships I mentioned earlier. Customers would have conversations with salespeople in stores like sears and those salespeople would report back and word would get back up the chain to Packard Bell about what customers liked what they didn't like what they were looking for company executives learned about how people wanted stuff like a machine capable of running a rom and that meant that one and he had to be a pentium and two they need to include. Cd ROMS OR TO MEET THAT DEMAND. It also helped that. Packard Bell had established an extremely nimble manufacturing process everything was really efficient and reportedly the company was even capable of assembling machines running on one type of component in the morning and then swap out there assembly line to cover a totally different set of components for a different model by lunchtime. So you could be making say a three eighty six computer in the morning and swap over to pentium by lunch. This is a big deal. Bigger companies couldn't move this fast so packard bell was hearing about customer needs early and then able to respond to them faster than their larger competitors capable of doing. The company also tried out different desktop computer designs. The General Design Philosophy was pretty industrial and utilitarian and boring around that time. Your Standard Computer was either a tower or a tabletop. Pc that took up a good amount of space. Packar-bell introduced computers with smaller form factors. And they try to get away from the Boring Beige Tower design however we have to look at some of the bad stuff too sure. The company was aggressive and producing machines for much lower costs than the competition. But that doesn't mean the machines. Were good if you do a search on packar-bell you're gonNA find a lot of articles that name the company as the worst brand of PC's in the nineteen nineties heck PC magazine in their top ten worst computers of all time listed all packard bell computers at number one not a single model they said. Packard Bell in general was the worst. Pc so what was actually going on while a big part of this had to do specifically with quality a lot of customers were displeased with their purchases having components fail. The computer just wasn't working really well. But how much is a lot? Well in nineteen ninety two Packard Bell revealed that it had a return rate of about seventeen percent now. The average in the market was closer to seven percent so this was more than double the average so nearly twenty percent or nearly one out of every five computers were being returned to Packard Bell so their reputation for unreliable. Computers wasn't exactly unearned now. It didn't start out that way. The early computers were considered to be pretty reliable. They weren't exactly premium machines but for the price they were serviceable however as chip manufacturers and really. I guess I should just say Intel. Because that's what Packard Bell went with as Intel produced faster processors Packard Bell's quality began to slip Packard. Bell leaned hard on the Intel inside sticker that was placed on every computer because the Intel name gave a lot of cachet Packard Bell and the general thought was that a cheap computer with an Intel processor is still better than an expensive computer with some other company's processor in like an amd processor but that wasn't necessarily true is that was the perception on top of that Packard Bell was using a lot of components that were you know a little odd Some of them were produced by other companies. That the owners of bell also just happened to own funny thing that this meant that when one of those parts failed as they frequently did. You couldn't just go and grab a replacement version off the shelf. You couldn't go and get some generic power source for example. You had to order special parts. Because those were the ones that would only work with those packard bell computers and they were also typically fairly expensive. They also were not necessarily more reliable than the part you replaced so you might have to keep replacing the same part with the same machine if you stuck with it. That man that packar-bell didn't get a whole lot of repeat business people would get burned by and then they'd say you know what I'm gonNA spend a little more money and go with one of the competitors. Magazines gave the computers bad reviews like I mentioned earlier. There was a glut of models packard bell models on the market and some of them were indistinguishable from each other. You could buy a the same packard bell computer from Sears Walmart or circuit city but each of those computers would have a different model number that indicated that it was a computer sold through this specific chain otherwise they were all identical but it got confusing in nineteen ninety five a French company. Groupe bull made a deal with Packard Bell that gave group Bull nearly twenty percent ownership of the company and another company and Japanese electronics company called NEC took pretty much the rest of the ownership of Packard Bell and integrated packar-bell with an EC computers. This would out to be what we call. A bad decision. See Bell was on the downward slope. The company's reputation shot. Everyone associated their computers as being cheap and unreliable technology. The bad reviews were killing sales and competitors. Were catching up. In addition Compaq one of the big competitors to Packard Bell had been accusing Packard. Bell of building computers with recycled parts. But still selling the computers as if they were brand new and comeback actually filed a lawsuit and stated that. This was a case of unfair competition. Nec would later. Settled this lawsuit out of court. But the damage was done in part because Packard bell executives consistently argued that using recycled parts really. Wasn't that big a deal. And why are you so upset? Man On top of that lawsuit. There were these new budget like low cost P. C. Companies. That are coming out like E. Machines do you guys remember. Means that also cut into Packard Bell's game by nine hundred ninety eight alagem and NEC. Were no longer seeing eye to eye remember. Nec came in essentially bought Packard Bell. So alagem either left or was forced to leave Packard Bell. He would go on to become a real estate guy and he spent the last couple of decades trying to build tall condos and Beverly Hills California not to very much success. Any C- kept pouring money into Packard Bell but was on the losing side dropping a couple of billion into the venture overall before they finally made the decision to shut down. Us operations and thus only sell packard bell branded machines in Europe. So in two thousand we saw Packard Bell goes away in the United States. In two thousand six NEC sold Packard. Bell to the person who used to own drum roll please. Machines Packard. Bell was folded under a holding company called PB Holdings and Lenovo actually entered into talks to acquire this holdings company and thus the Packard Bell brand the following year in two thousand seven but they were beaten to the punch by another company. Acer. So Acer took on seventy five percent ownership of PB Holdings the company that owns the branded Packard Bell Acer was trying to prevent Lenovo from getting a foothold in the European market. Now recently here in the United States a holding company called PBX Holdings purchased the Packard Bell Ip. And you can actually find very cheap computers with the Packard Bell branding on them again in the United States. But these have no connection to any of the previous Packard Bell's including the personal computers of the nineteen eighties nineteen nineties apart from the name. Now this again reminds me of Atari. Atari was accompanied that we got really big collapsed in on itself then essentially had its parts sold off including the names and after a while. The names were the only thing that really remained. There were no other components from the companies that actually remained with it. It was just the brand name and you have to ask yourself. Is that really the same thing? If all that's left is the name is does it have any meaning to it and I guess you could argue that for marketing purposes. It still does. But that is the Packard Bell Story. A really confusing weird one that is continuing kind of but really it's like we keep seeing a different. James Bond right that every single James Bond has absolutely no connection with any other James Bond. That's kind of how it works.

"Packard bell leaned hard on the Intel inside sticker that was placed on every computer because the Intel name gave a lot of cachet Packard Bell, and the general thought was that a cheap computer with an Intel processor is still better than an expensive computer with some other company's processor in like an amd processor, but that wasn't necessarily true. Is that was the perception on top? Top of that Packard Bell was using a lot of components that were you know a little odd Some of them were produced by other companies that the owners of packar-bell also just happened to own funny thing that this meant that when one of those parts failed as they frequently did. You couldn't just go and grab a replacement version off the shelf. You couldn't go. Go and get some generic power source. For example you had to order special parts, because those were the ones that would only work with those packard bell computers, and they were also typically fairly expensive. They also were not necessarily more reliable than the part. You replaced, so you might have to keep replacing the same part with the same machine if you stuck with it. That man, that packar-bell didn't get a whole lot of repeat business. People would get burned by, and then they'd say you know what I'm GonNa. Spend a little more money and go with one of the competitors. Magazines gave the computers bad reviews like I mentioned earlier there was a glut of models packard bell models on the market, and some of them were indistinguishable from each other. You could by essentially the same packard bell computer from sears, Walmart or circuit city, but each of those computers would have a different model number that indicated that it was A. A computer sold through this specific chain. Otherwise they were all identical, but it got confusing in nineteen, ninety, five, a French company Groupe bull made a deal with Packard. Bell that gave group Bull. Nearly twenty percent ownership of the company and another company and Japanese electronics company called NEC took pretty much. The rest of the ownership of Packard Bell and integrated packar-bell with an EC computers. This would turn out to be what we call a bad decision. See packar-bell was on the downward slope. The company's reputation shot. Everyone associated their computers as being cheap and unreliable. The bad reviews were killing sales and competitors were catching up in addition compaq, one of the big competitors to Packard Bell had been A. Packard Bell of building computers with recycled parts, but still selling the computers as if they were brand, new and comeback actually filed a lawsuit and stated that this was a case of unfair competition NEC would later settled this lawsuit out of court, but.

Packard Bell Foundation success in the television market, just as it had with the radio market, and before long, the company was selling its. Its products across the United States. This also meant finally abandoning that station is approach to radio dials. Because now, the frequencies weren't corresponding to the same radio stations. There is no guarantee that the person who is buying your radio would have access to the exact same radio stations as what you were putting on the dial, so they get rid of that by the mid nineteen fifties, things were. Were good enough with Packard Bell for them to go public with the company to go from private company to publicly traded company Erbil, would step down as president, but he would remain on the board of directors for several more years. In the meantime, the company wanted to stretch a bit more to get into some other stries, and so they created a new division focused on building out computers. Computers now this was still in the late nineteen fifties, so we're not talking about personal computers here we're talking about many computers can of the the bridge between mainframe systems and the desktop machines that we would later no and sometimes love so these were computer systems that were meant to do number crunching for stuff like research, facilities or universities, or the military or sometimes really big companies. Packard Bell hired a former US air force. Meteorologists named Max Pelewski to spearhead. The computer efforts had really begun to study computer science after working with people like von Neumann, so he was coming into this really jazzed and the first computer that Packard Bell would build would be called the PB to fifty. It was a computer built on the principles of the automatic computing, engine or ace. That's a computer system that was designed by the Great Alan, turing himself, the ace marked the first truly electronic stored program, all purpose digital computer, and that's a lot of words, so let's break it down a little bit. The all purpose part has really easy. So early on engineers built a lot of specific purpose computer systems, these were designed to handle a very narrow spectrum of tasks, and these machines had a streamline designed for that purpose now when I say streamlined I don't mean in terms of physical structure because all these machines were big and unwieldy, but rather in terms. Terms of the systems architecture, what it was actually processing information for so these specific machines were quite good at handling the problems that fit within their design, but they were incapable of running any other kind of process outside of that purpose and all purpose or general purpose computer could run any program within that computer's capabilities, not just a narrow spectrum of programs. During design was ambitious so much so that his colleagues ultimately decided they had to compromise on that vision quite a bit when building out the actual computer, otherwise, the engineering requirements were going to be too severe, so they made a much more modest machine called the pilot model ace in nineteen fifty packard-bell's pb to fifty followed in the design philosophy of as it wasn't exactly a copy, but it was built on those same basic principles, okay, what about electronic stored well one? One thing the PB to sported was Magneto, restrictive memory, and this was a type of delay line memory for computers. Now you've probably heard me talk about random access memory or Ram and if not I'm sure you've encountered at least the concept of Ram Ram is a type of storage that allows computers to process information without pulling it from a hard disk or disk drive. It's temporary type of storage meant to facilitate calculations to make stuff faster. I sometimes like in it. It too short term versus long term memory for humans, but that's not really an apples to apples comparison. It's just kind of useful to say if you have in your short term memory. That's right there and you're working with it. It's really easy. If you have to remember something that happened a long time ago. that takes more time. It's similar to that concept, but it's not a one to one analogy well. Delay Line memory is even different from that for one. One thing it's not random access delay line memory is sequential, so the data is organized in the order that it was entered as this predetermined ordered sequence. It's also totally weird when you think about in context of modern computing. Here's how it worked. In the original incarnation of delay line memory, the system would convert data into sound waves, so it actually become an acoustic form of information, and then it would send that acoustic wave, the sound waves through a medium that. Put the brakes on those sound waves. You know sound travels at different speeds through different media. Right travels through water more slowly than it travels through air for example. In the case of the early delay line memory models, they use tubes of liquid mercury. The sound waves carrying data would slow down as it would transfer into the liquid mercury, but we continue traveling until all reach the far end of the two mercury, wherein it would hit a sensor that would allow it to re electrify the signal for processing a process signal could then be sent back through the tube now you could set up such a system to store that data temporarily and the way you do it. It is you would constantly send the same signal back and forth the tube until you need it. The site make likened this to using an echo to do the same thing, so imagine that you're standing in a canyon and you need to remember something like someone just told you some numbers, and you got remember them, so you shouted out really loudly and a couple of moments later you hear the echo of your shout coming back to you, so it's like you just remembered the number. You yelled out, but. But Hey that echoes GonNa. Fade away, right? It doesn't stick around forever, and maybe you don't need the information at that exact moment, so that means after you hear the Echo, you need to shout the same thing again to continue to preserve it, and so on, and so on until you finally get to the point where you actually have to use that information, and then you can stop shouting it back out again. Well. The same thing is happening in delay line memory. The system sends data through this journey. Journey because it's going to need that data later, it doesn't need it right now, but let's say the data completes this journey. The computer still doesn't need the information well, then it just repeats the incoming message and sends that data back out on the journey again. One downside of this is that when the computer does need the information, it has to wait for the data to complete whatever leg of the journey it's on, so you can't just call up information instantaneously. There's actually a bit of a delay. Computer systems like the PB to fifty relied on this type of memory, as did more well known computers like the UNIVAC One. It's a pretty interesting way.

"We just heard from Dr Anthony Fauci buried among the warnings he put out today for Congress is that children are at greater risk if we open up the count of the country in schools too early also the CDC is planning to issue an advisory related to a mystery illness affecting young children that may be linked to the crown of fibers for more on all this return to the KCBS ring central news line and talk with Dr Yvonne Maldonado chief of infectious diseases at Lucille Packard children's hospital and professor at Stanford school of medicine the professor thanks as always for making some time for us before we get into this whole mystery illness let's talk about the broader picture that doctor found she referenced today the risk to kids if we reopen schools too soon your thoughts well I do think we have to start planning but we need to be very careful about how we do that so we need to make sure that if we get children back into school we know how to control the environment for them so that they don't become infected and they don't infect others I think the heavy lifting of planning and he needs to start now because all will be here before we know it so is it still believe that they are lower risk of contracting the virus themselves and it's just that once they get into school they have more contacts with other people than adults would at the same time period you know I don't think we really understand why children don't don't have the same manifestations that adults too it's very common for children to be the first to get infected with new diseases and so whether they're getting infected and not as likely to be symptomatic or whether they're truly have different protective mechanisms that are keeping them from being infected is not clear if it's probably a combination let's segue now into this mystery illness it's being reported we're hearing about a toxic shock like information that affects the skin the eyes blood vessels in the heart and an often leaves these kids seriously ill with some patients requiring ventilation what do you make of all that well that extraction drums actually been known for a long time many different infections with viruses and bacteria can cause that so I think that's not the new part of this what's new is that it's happening with probably in response to this particular virus so we know that can happen with staff are dropping sections we know Kannapolis viral infections it's very uncommon but it does happen and it looks like it's not very common in children but it is happening and we're still learning more about it can you prevent it because so what the way I understand it then it it happens in response to another a point of information in the child's body and they've been successful in preventing that inflammation from occurring with other original infections yes so essentially what we think is happening here is it's really the immune we again as far as we understand it seems that the immune system is somehow triggered on in going awry in trying to you know respond to an infection sh and so there have been a number of treatment that we can offer on the in patient in the hospital side as well as continuing treatment for children that have continuing complications we've been doing that for many many years and that we're adding newer therapies as well that seems to be working in many other cases would come of it as well as in the cases that we've seen before it Dr Maldonado again thank you for making time for us we do appreciate that Dr Yvonne Maldonado chief of infectious diseases at Lucille Packard children's hospital and professor at Stanford school

My favourite tennis match

"We'RE GOING TO BE KICKING OFF. A new series and looking at some of a favor owed time tennis. Matches will also be catchy on the tennis news as well a little bit catch on with the virtual Madrid Open. That's just happened Andy. Bari Packard a virtual school as well as the news. The tennis is actually starting up again in some parts of the world in Germany. But before we get into that Kim how you doing. How is how is lockdown? Treating much the same as last week H. O. By fairly fast actually despite the lack of store which is really weird. I think I've kind of just go used to it now but having said that I did cheat in worship Madrid. I didn't won't should awful. I have to say it was. Radi my cup of tea just kind of saying it on a playstation today. What is g thing? Yeah it was a bit of kind of a completely new scenario new situation and I think it's kind of recognizes that living in these times they can open up new opportunities and of course you know this is one of them in the tennis world and I thought it was kind of really interesting to say I think in terms of what I liked. I absolutely loved the place. Be BUYING INTO IT. And procreating like the war codes Up there that the herbs to the controller I really loved that I'd like pretending to warm up thumbs and I really liked the way that kind of the players go invested in it and we're kind of really enthusiastic about getting creative and and kind of showing it off on on social media See I think that was kind of one of the things I I really liked. I saw I think it was Belinda. Bench really went. Allow it like a tennis gear. As I said could walk up the stairs a yeah just thought it was great to see getting really enthusiastic about it. 'cause we've not seen them on a TV. We're not seeing the you know what she pilots. Whatever as fans over the last few months it's just almost kind of great great to see them again really. Yeah I thought that was. That was good like the best saying the players saying the engage with the wall. I thought bench probably owned that one. I just like the little bits in the corner. We can just see their faces as they're playing. You just want to see their homes in the pack right to see what what. They've gone like their bookshelves or like. I just find it really interesting is like through the Keyhole. But he the past and that is really hyping. The stands framed in the background. Well potentially coming up in this focus on his lovely shorts but no yeah I. I didn't really like actually watching this. Nsa Watch just liked having the players kind of interacting having a bit of a laugh so that was nice to see the thing. This format would. I didn't think I'd want to see this every week. I think it would get a bit repetitive. After a while but I think it was a good kind of one off thing and obviously Andy Murray one that we should give him credit for that because he's now won the tournament on three different surfaces. If you can cool the virtual sphere surface adolphus. The Andy has donated his prize. Money half is going to the NHS and half is Gordon to the players Relief Fund. So it's obviously for Good Kohl's and Kiki burdens won the women's event as well and I think she was actually due to defend. Muhtar to say she has succeeded into that are mixed in our love. I love that idea. She's she's the non virtual virtual back to back very innovative. Double D for a champion. But yeah I think yes kind of great to see I guess. Play his Getting involved I think one of the things that I think they could have done. Better way of is the had this common tree over the top of the of the players. Now I I was kind of the point where I think it's more insightful. And more interesting if you just let the play is very commentary because Y- They are tennis players that professionals at the end of the day you'll be ready. I think what bringing up level is kind of almost kind of getting them to kind of talk about the tactics or you know that sort of that sort of level that sort of layer that. Yeah well my sick on a Royal Corps And it's like if I was doing this show in real life. I would choose to go here because of X. Y. And Said Yeah. It could be more of an educational thing as well I think what I did. I cheat and they lost connection because I was watching on light-years addicts correct show. It was just having to could LE- sort of chats while they were waiting for everything to ten on again. Did you see the I think Diego Schwarzer was best. Play at Deborrah. The savvy FIDO's but due to a weak WIFI CONNECTION. Debry a sorry. Schwartzman had to concede walkway. So I mean I love that idea. The like I think that's going to be one of the VAD. The walkover reasons happens to the best of our good today that like even top tennis players have poor Wi fi and all safely on. La has had a bit of a Jake because he said that Rafa could play because he'd like injured his back reaching for his game controller. Which and everyone believes here. I think I mean I think we believed him as well. As we've always believed tweeted about be cowed they gig for Geria- saw and I thought this this off to the best of the fortunately that was not the case. Rafeh was able to play. But we'll just very gullible but yeah if they're going to do this again like I think it could cost you on. But just every now and again maybe they do in other Walden on like Wimbledon. I different surfaces. I assume this playstation game has all the different surfaces they do girl scout one. Couldn't they maybe federal workup? That yeah that I think it could work. I think it could coexist when the tools get back up and running. I wonder if it's a sort of you know in the in the grounds of the events and you have fans can go line up for like an autograph from players and I wonder whether you could be like. There's a stand somewhere grandson for example. Oh face off against some. I player playing tennis against them. Virtually Sake I could see that happening. I know there are a few comments. The game was almost up to like up to scratch And you know whether it's the improvements to be made with with the game and you know I think I think potentially peop- governing bodies like the ATP liked the W. H. E. A. Maybe they should be looking at partnering with Game's about to really kind of Mak- licensed game like fever. Because I think you know I think this is as you said. This is very new is almost kind of this was a test and you know. I think there is appetite for it but I think there's almost kind of a lot can be done on that so a product side of it. Yeah for sure. I'm sure that's an avenue. They could possibly see going for. It's an yeah I like the idea that you could maybe have a bit of a play on it while you are an event. Perhaps if during a rain delay or something and even on Joe we actually have some real tennis. That's happened this weekend in Germany. It's kind of the first actual players of setback on cool so they've done a little exhibition featuring Dustin Brown and seven other players including randomly the British benign. Yon Shouldn't ski. Who I think is based in Germany. Anyway so yeah. That's been happening this weekend. We'll see JEB. So you fall head of other countries. Getting back to normalcy. So they've been out to do this. Little event Neko blends at the Base Tennis Academy. It's GonNa oversee how necessary health and safety measures in place. So they've obviously not touching hands at the net. They're going to touch rockets instead. There's no ballboys fans line judges. They're obviously doing it. Very watered down version is not for any points or or anything. It's not count I guess. Prize money's involved. So it's I guess aimed at lower ranked players to to kind of keep them earning something during this time and I think it's only for players based within about ninety minutes of the event so it's overseas a very limited

"After her have been moved back to Massachusetts with their youngest children. Elizabeth Packard return to the idea. She'd had in the hospital and that was of supporting herself through writing. She started revising material that she had started in the hospital, her first published book was called exposure on board, the Atlantic, and Pacific, car of emancipation for the slaves of old Columbia engineered by the lightning express, or Christianity, and Calvinism compared with an appeal to the government to emancipate the slaves of the marriage union, that was followed by quote edited by a slave now imprisoned in Jacksonville. Insane asylum place, there by her husband for thinking and all capital, letters written under the inspection of Dr McFarland superintendent of insane asylum. Jacksonville she used a lot of slavery, imagery, in her writing unsurprisingly. It was like eighteen sixty three this was the first of seven books and numerous pamphlets that she wrote over the next sixteen. Years, which did turn out to be enough for her to support herself asylum, narratives had become a popular genre. These were sensational. First person accounts of people who had been institutionalized. They were part memoir and part expose intended to resonate with fans of the gothic fiction that was popular at the time, Elizabeth goal was both to support herself and encourage reform to the asylum system. We should note that, that also makes it hard to figure out like exactly what the truth is to the accounts because she was writing them to sell books when very sensational accounts were pretty typical. And she was also trying to get people to change the law, and then once again, various relational accounts could work toward that end. Also that makes it a little tricky to figure out like exactly what the details were. But that's just some background. She also got to work lobbying legislators to pass laws to keep what had happened to her from happening to other women. She often drafted these bills herself and lobbied lawmakers personally to get them introduced him past some of her bills were focused on the rights of married women, like the right for a woman to have full custody of her children after a divorce rather than her husband, just having that custody by default. There was also the right for a married woman's to keep all the money, she earned rather than it going to her husband, again, by default, both of these were issues that directly affected her. When her husband had left with her children. She had no recourse, and when she started publishing books, she wanted to be able to keep all the money she earned. She also worked on bills, relating to patient rates. She had observed that a person accused of a crime was guaranteed rights to counsel and due process. But in most states, a person who had a mental illness, had none of that and might be committed without any kind of hearing, this also meant that people who weren't mentally ill could be. Wrongly committed. So she lobbied for bills that required a trial before a person was committed to an asylum or hospital. Elizabeth also drafted bills, relating to the rights of patients and mental hospitals when she was hospitalized. The mail was often censored, or withheld from patients, so she drafted bills that guaranteed patients free and uncensored access to their mail in eighteen sixty five following her advocacy, Illinois, passed a personal liberty Bill requiring a trial for any person, being committed whether they were married or not ending the ability for husbands to have their wives committed without a trial the legislature, passed this unanimously a later amendment made this retroactive so that people who had been admitted before, eighteen sixty five were still entitled to a trial not long after an investigating committee was convened to examine allegations of abuse at the Illinois hospital for the insane, including Elizabeth accounts. Elizabeth was called to testify with questioning going on for about six hours. At the very end of that day, that love letter that she had written to Dr McFarland was introduced as evidence to try to undermine her believability, because she'd been on the stand for so long the commission allowed her to respond to that the next day. And when she did she explained, what we said earlier, that it had been a desperate effort to flatter him and get him to help her publish our book, ultimately, the committee found numerous examples of cruelty toward patients at the hospital as well as evidence that McFarland had missed classified patients. Housing people with minor treatable conditions with patients who were disruptive and violent. Although the commission recommended that McFarland be dismissed the city of Jacksonville and the hospital's board of trustees stood by him. He eventually resigned on November, thirtieth eighteen sixty eight while continuing to have a career in mental health, Elizabeth kept up her lobbying through all of this, and through a very bitter, very public three-way dispute among herself, her husband and her former doctor every time she proposed new. Legislation McFarland publicly raised questions about her mental health, the office was also publicly disparaging of her, and she of him, this whole situation was unsurprisingly, extremely hard on their children. When the awful is I had Elizabeth institutionalized the children mostly sided with her then after three years with their father. They believed that he had been right about their mothers mental state sometime after being reunited with her. Most of them supported her side of the story again. And this went back and forth repeatedly as they were with one parent, or the other, or had their own issues going on with their personal lives and their relationships to the rest of the family, the increasingly acrimonious relationship between Elizabeth and the off Louis affected them as well. Libby Packard in particular struggled with her own mental health and possibly an eating disorder for much of her life almost certainly exacerbated by their stressful. And chaotic family situation she ultimately. Died in the Illinois eastern hospital for the insane. In eighteen sixty nine Elizabeth bought a home in Chicago, where her oldest children already lived soon after she learned that Massachusetts had passed a law giving mothers, equal rights to custody, she filed a petition to seek custody of her three youngest children. And the awful is didn't contest it by this point. He really didn't have a good way to support himself or the children. He could not really find a congregation for his very conservative Calvinism anymore. And in light of Elizabeth books and varied public testimony and ongoing advocacy of lot of people believe that he hid maliciously, imprisoned, his wife and did not as a result want him to be their preacher, Elizabeth for her part lived, a mostly comfortable life in Chicago, until the great Chicago fire spending more time with her children, and less on her bills advocacy, the fire destroyed her stock of books and the plates used to print them, which temporarily left her without a waiter, earn a living. She was eventually able to get set up with a new publisher in. New york. But then another fire destroyed much of her stock there as well. This time she was insured, though. So she had some money to live on while she started, again, by eighteen seventy two she only had one child left at home, and she started more aggressively taking up these causes traveling from state to state advocating for bills to protect patient rights and the rights of married women Isla, passed legislation known as Packers law that year this law established visiting committees which had to include at least one woman, to inspect asylums in that state. These committees were authorized to fire abusive employees, their contact information had to be posted in every word the hospital and hospitals were also required to inform patients of their right to contact the committee about their concerns, this law also outlawed the censorship or the withholding of patients, male, and it required. A coroner's inquest if a patient mysteriously died. This Bill faced a lot of resistance from. Iowa's, hospitals and from the association of medical superintendents of American institutions for the insane as Elizabeth's started campaigning state-by-state to try to get similar measures passed. Elsewhere the. A. M S A. I embarked on what it called the project of the law to try to block as many of these bills as they could. They thought these bills made it harder for the hospitals to subdue patients, and they worried about how their work was damaging the reputation of the entire field. The idea that the AMS a I thought that patients needed to be subdued caused Elizabeth Packard, a great amount of outrage. She campaigned through New York and New England and then onto other parts of the country facing character assassination by the AMS. And by her husband, everywhere, she went in spite of that she tended to be very effective. I mean she wasn't always successful. She introduced plenty of bills that didn't alternately get past. But in the words of a Massachusetts legislator, quote, we passed the Bill because we could not do. Otherwise, for MRs Packard was so very persistent. We could not bluff her off. She also went to Washington DC and lobbied. President Ulysses s grant for a Bill to protect the right of patients in asylums to get their mail without censorship or surveillance. Although grant agreed that such a law was needed that Bill did not ultimately pass by the end of Elizabeth Packard's life. More than thirty bills had been passed to protect the rights of married. Women or of psychiatric patients some of these came from her direct, advocacy, and others came from the widespread news coverage of her work and her story in eighteen seventy five Mary Todd Lincoln. And went through a widely publicized, insanity trial, one of the doctors who examined her was Dr McFarland and many reports noted that the laws governing her trial were very strict because of Elizabeth Packard's advocacy at the same time this trial revealed that it was still possible for someone to skirt the law to have someone else committed. Mary Todd Lincoln son informed her of the upcoming trial at the last minute, and then appointed an attorney who was in favor of committing her to represent her in eighteen seventy eight Elizabeth Packard published the great drama which was four volumes long. That is sixteen hundred pages. It was written during her last month in the asylum, and it's very scattered. And chaotic, I mean, we talked about Dr McFarland saying that he couldn't help her get it published. It was full of references to spiritualism and personal visions that she had connected to the idea of spiritualism, these were things that she had distanced herself from an earlier published writing is. It's clear from the text itself that being in the asylum, for three years had taken a mental and emotional toll on her. But it also seems like at this point, she hit established enough of her name for herself that she didn't think it was going to hurt her. If she made all of these thoughts public, the awfulest Packer died in eighteen eighty five. And then Andrew McFarland died in November of eighteen ninety one Elizabeth's writing doesn't reveal her thoughts, or feelings about either of these deaths. She was by all appearances continuing to lobby for bills to protect women and people with mental illness throughout all of it. Elizabeth Packer died on July twenty six eighteen ninety seven at the age of eighty after surgery on a strangulated. Hernia legacy is a little bit complicated. It's clear that in her own mind. She was mentally, well for all of her adult life, some of her writing though is chaotic and disordered in a way that it suggests that she might have had some kind of underlying condition, although not necessarily one that would have required her to be hospital. Sized against her will or this could have been totally situational. Just stemming from this combination of social expectations, and her deteriorating relationship with her husband and the hospitalization itself. And just all the stress that came along with all of that. And there are also questions about whether the law, she was drafting really were what was best for patients. It is clear that before she lived, it was far too easy for people to have family members committed, especially for husbands to commit their wives. But what's less clear is whether a requirement for a jury trial is the best way to protect a person's rights. Many of the laws that Packard worked on Relator revised to protect patient privacy during these trials or to require some other assessment process rather than a trial before being admitted to an inpatient facility, regardless though. The laws definitely offered. More protection than had existed before. Yeah. Whether it's true that those were the right protections or not..

"V Wilson, I'm Holly fried. When we talk about nineteenth century mental health reformers here in the US, one of the first names that probably comes to mind as Dorothea Dix Dix was the superintendent of army nurses for the union during the civil war. And she spent decades advocating for state funded hospitals or people with mental illnesses and for better treatment of people in those hospitals as well as in prisons, another reformer, who was living at the same time was Elizabeth Parsons, where Packard who actually met Dick's at one point. Dixies advocacy work started, after she saw the conditions at the east Cambridge house of corrections and Massachusetts, where she'd been asked to teach Sunday, school class Packard's started, after she was involuntarily committed to an asylum based on her husband's determination that she was in the language of the time insane Packard met Dick's, while hospitalized. We going. To talk about Packard's story over the next two episodes, and today, the focus is freely on Packard and her husband and how their marriage progress from one that was apparently happy to win that was just crumbling. And ultimately abusive, we don't talk as much about the mental health treatment and mental health reform in today's episode as we will next time. But some of the language that comes up is that language we would like we wouldn't typically just describe person as insane today without other context. But like that is the word that was commonly used in her writing and his writing. And in the conversation at the time, Elizabeth Packard was born, Elizabeth Parsons wear on December twenty eighth. Eighteen sixteen in ware, Massachusetts. She was the oldest surviving child of the Reverend Samuel wear who was a congregational as pastor. She also had two younger. Brothers, though, wears a middle class family, and Elizabeth was given a classical education, along with her. Others the family, moved to Amherst in eighteen twenty six and Elizabeth went on to attend the Amherst female seminary, female seminary were schools, meant to provide women with the same higher education. That was available to men so they were focused on academics rather than being focused on becoming good homemakers and wives, part of Elizabeth's religious experience, was the Calvinism idea of conversion conversion is not, of course, unique to Calvinism but Elizabeth's family and church community were Calvin est even if a person had been baptized and attended church regularly. They weren't considered truly a member until after experiencing a religious conversion and publicly professing, their face Elizabeth's conversion happened at a revival in eighteen thirty one, but she really had some doubts about it conversion was rooted in a sense of public repentance and salvation from sin, but Elizabeth just didn't think of herself as all that simple. In her words, she quote. Always had been doing as well as I knew how to do she felt as though she had repented for her sins as they happened rather than waiting for a conversion experience. The do it. She feared that her conversion was just something that was expected of her and not something that she genuinely felt this process of thinking through her own religious experience in ways that contradicted her religious community was something that she would do for the rest of her life, Elizabeth became principal of Randolph academy in west Randolph, Massachusetts after she finished her studies at Amherst female seminary, but just after her nineteenth birthday her career was interrupted by what was described as brain fever. This was kind of a catch, all term for illnesses with symptoms, like a high fever sensitivity to light and sound headache in an excited or agitated mind it might be applied to real conditions like encephalitis meningitis and migraines. But it was also a diagnosis, given to supposedly overexcited, or overexerted women. Elizabeth's family called in a doctor, but she didn't improve right away. So on January twenty seventh eighteen thirty six her father had her admitted at the Worcester hospital for the insane. According to her patient records, her father suspected that the problem was that her course it's released too tightly, and that her work as a teacher was causing quote, too much mental effort. Her doctor doctor Samuel b Woodward described Elizabeth as being calm at sometimes, and mentally excited at other times, he also said that she had sores and Amena RIA, or missed menstrual periods, he prescribed, a range of treatments including Epsom salts and tincture of opium for her pain. He also gave her the griffis mixture which included Moore and was used to treat Claro roses aka green sickness which we talked about, in our episode on the green children of wool pits. That was one of those diseases that for some reason, only women got within a few weeks, though, Elizabeth seemed to be well, her doctor describe. Her as quote at all times now very pleasant, and he discharged her as cured on March. Eighteenth of eighteen thirty six Elizabeth's own opinion on all this was that her condition had been caused by the initial treatment that she was given for brain fever, and that she simply improved with time, the whole experience, didn't leave her with a very good, opinion of conventional medicine or of asylums. She was also profoundly embarrassed by it, and angry at her father for taking her to an asylum in the nineteenth century, it was very easy for women to be labeled as hysterical or insane. And once people thought of you that way that impression tended to stick, not exactly a tendency that has vanished. If people decide your shriller hysterical, you've still are no matter how you behave later on may twenty first eighteen thirty nine Elizabeth, Mary, the awfulness Packer junior of Shelburne, Massachusetts. The office was born on February first eighteen to he was educated through tutors and schools and through his father's religious instruction. The awful senior was a congregational minister, the younger Theophilus spent some time as a teacher at the age of fifteen but he found that he did not really have the patience for it. The awfulest started college when he was fifteen as well although he was chronically ill. So his studies were often interrupted by health issues, although his father was the pastor at a well established church. The awfulness was one of eight children. So money could be tight and at times, the office had to take a break from school, so that the family could afford tuition for his younger brother like his future wife, the office had some ambivalence about his own conversion. He went to. Series of revival meetings, starting in eighteen nineteen, but he never really felt the sense of conviction that he needed to. He finally converted in eighteen twenty three and started studying to become a minister like his father. Unlike the elder at the office, he never finished a divinity degree, but he did join his father as co pastor of Shelbourne congregational church in eighteen twenty eight when the awfulest married Elizabeth, he was thirty seven and she was twenty two despite their age difference. They both had similar backgrounds. Both their fathers were congregational, est ministers. They were both educated and well read they both opposed slavery, and they both wanted to start a family. There wasn't really a love match though. Their temperaments were very different. Elizabeth was lively and a little unconventional and Theophilus was very sober, and reserved in their journals, and their writings about their early married life, Elizabeth proudly. And sometimes a few simply talked about their home and their children and the clothes that she made. The for them and she did it in a very personal way. The awful is on the other hand, was very practical and analytical, and he detailed things like the fact that he got married and their household expenses. And all these other mundane matters without a lot of emotion involved, Elizabeth had lots of suitors, who were closer to her age, and she seems to have married, the off Lewis mostly to please. Her father, the two men were longtime associates, and Theophilus had known her since she was ten years old. The awful is for his part, seems to have married her because he was an established pastor, and it was simply time for him to have a wife and spite of all these differences, though, for the next fifteen years. Their relationship seems to have been fine. They were financially comfortable with a nice house on six acres of land with an orchard, Elizabeth filled the role of a minister's wife, well, helping out in the community and teaching Sunday school in generally being an upstanding example. She was a good housekeeper and a good host when other ministers visited them. They. Had a child every two or three years. Another Theophilus born in eighteen forty two Isaac known as IRA in eighteen forty four Samuel in eighteen forty seven Elizabeth known as Libyan eighteen fifty and George eighteen fifty three. These are both devoted parents with Elizabeth, raising the children and Theophilus seeing to their religious instruction and their life suddenly changed in December of eighteen fifty three and we'll get into that after we I pause for a sponsor break. Hey, I'm Andy, if you don't know me, it's probably because I'm not famous, but I did start a men's grooming.
