"I think is not tenable. It again ask you. You can't say everyone's allowed to fuck here except for you. Yes that is a rich owner of a company that has access to every other person on the planet. Sorry they can't have the five women who work under him. Yes it's totally fine. I mean it is and the difference between level four and level three relationship and the boss of a company is that person makes big decisions about the employee's livelihood. There is no way to untie that well but then we got to get more specific. I think it should be illegal for a boss which it already is to change the career path of someone. They've slept with that's illegal. That's what wrongful termination suits her about regularly one. You can't do that so that problem is already addressed. You can't fuck someone and because you broke up. Fuck their career. We'll be it's so nuanced abbass can say well. I just didn't give them a raise because they weren't performing. I would say it's pretty easy you chart. They're twelve years at the company. And you see how regularly they got promoted regular. They got raises. They fucked the boss and all that stopped. They prove it all the time in core but they also don't. It's hard to prove stuff like that because there are so many factors that play as an employee. It's very easy to say it's this that or the other but most people that's the only human beings they see. They're at work eighty hours a week as a lawyer. They don't they don't seem until they know they work with. Think about all the people you know in your life. How many of them are no but anyone. My mom and my dad didn't meet at work. My amy and ryan didn't meet at work like known it's not unfathomable only you have and lots of people's whole life is work. Yeah well that's maybe something to change. If you're like literally. The only pool is this pool of employees. I have because i worked on stop. Then you say. I'm working less or i'm not gonna have relationships. The answer is not to then have a relationship with someone We're this mean. Blue bird love you. I love you..

Notable Developments on the College Basketball Coaching Carousel Scuttlebutt

"A lot of movement on the coaching carousel. Over the past couple of days the big. One of course was indiana firing archie miller. After four seasons. We talked about that on a previous podcast. So go find it. We're not going to spend any time on that here but let me walk you through the other notable developments richard patino out at minnesota and as up tuesday morning. He's the new coach at new mexico. State has quote parted ways with steve. Prohm depaul finally took. Dave laid off the hot seat list. Boston college hired earl. Grant penn state hired mike castrucci berry dead leg spin a pretty good right now. It's spinning man. Yeah listen we give the. We are gearing up for this tournament. We got we got more than forty eight hours till. We're gonna tip the first game here so as expected. We've had some movement on the carousel. So we'll let's get into a little bit of this This scuttle but here kind of take it job by job. Best job openings indiana. Let's kind of go in order. I guess second best job. That's open. I would say iowa state is a better job than minnesota steve. Prohm gets fired late monday night. His jamie pollard was on the selection committee so he traveled back as he should have to meet with promo person and do what he what needed to be done You and i both seven the podcast in january. We expected steve prone to return next season. But we also didn't expect iowa state to never win a game like he just got to an irreversible point. so he's done. He put out a classy statement on tuesday morning. And i don't know whether or not steve prohm will land somewhere else head. Coaching position this coaching cycle but he will be a head coach again. He did take iowa state to three inch tournaments he was really good prior to that at murray state and certainly qualified for. It's just a matter of Is there anything out there. That he would be offered or anything out there that he would want as for the job. The candidates we're early. But i'm told that this is certainly a coach that you know quite well as well i'm told jamie pollard definitely will be considering. Unlv head coach. Tj burger near the top of his list. I can't say that he is the favorite. I just think that it's objectively true. That tj also burger will be under consideration for the iowa state job along the likes of. You're going to hear puerto moser connected to multiple jobs on this podcast because let's face it especially if he wins at least one tournament game. He's just a hot name. And he's going to be attached to iowa st paul minnesota. I i don't know if you'd be a favorite for state. But i think his name makes sense. I think utah. State's craig smith might make sense and then a high. I do have a wildcard one. Uab's andy kennedy has gone to the sec. Good job at ole miss. He's just one year and at uab but he had he had a really good year. In fact i think he won more games in his first season. This past season than just about anyone. Maybe all of all of the first year coach coaches. So i think that's a fact no first year coach at a new program. One more games this season than ak i. It's just i'm lobbying out. There is a name that should be considered. And then i did see fran for shila tweet this and i do. I do think there's something to it. Like a baylor is a one seed could be in the final four. Hey first time since bill henderson all that good stuff tang is a is a high level power conference assistant that is deserving of an opportunity would come at a power conference level. I don't know. But i think it's only a matter of time before jerome tank. Its job as well. So i'm just tossing him in knows the league as potentially someone that They should consider or at least at the very least interview sets an initial pool of

Piers Morgan Defends Criticizing Meghan Markle

"Any people are quitting their jobs over it. Okay today daily piers. Morgan is out of work in. Everyone has an opinion yesterday. Peers parted ways with it which airs. Good morning britain and he's not backing down. Here's what he tweeted just today a monday. I said i didn't believe meghan. Markle in her oprah interview. I've had time to reflect on this opinion. And i still don't if you did okay. He added that freedom of speech is a hill. He is willing to die on. Wow we're obviously he's about to. So here's obviously. He's been under fire ever since monday when he questioned megan's claims that she couldn't get help for her mental health. Listen to what he said. Okay let's have the names. Who did you go to. What did they say to you. I'm sorry i don't believe a word. She says megamall don't believe redmi she's five this onslaught against royal family. I think he's contemptible mental illness and suicide these clearly extremely serious things and if they belong to an institution the royal family and they go and seek help they should absolutely be given it. It's not for me to question whether she felt suicide. I wasn't in her mind. I'm prepared to be proven wrong on this. And if i'm wrong it is a scandal. The she went to a senior member of the royal household told them she was suicidal and was told she could not have any help because it would be a bad look for the family. If that is true that person still there should be fired and beat the royal family have serious questions to be answered about. They handled it take several seats. I don't know though. I wouldn't believe if you read the weather. Report sounds like bitter bitter bitter bitter ban. I mean listen. I won't be a friend about this. And i've been very clear on this show i am not piers morgan's biggest fans so there is a little bit biased there. I think that he has said a lot of offensive things over the years. I think he is degraded. Women i think he is has unfairly had a bias against make markle but i actually think and you know it's a long show right. It's kind of like this show. We just they just kind of keep talking. So it's he settled. He said some offensive things where he really acted like he didn't believe her But he's talking about the fact his his point is and i don't know that it became like a clique bay but his point is he doesn't believe that when megan went and ask for help she was told no. That's the part of the story that he doesn't believe and i think that even though it's controversial to say i think as a journalist As as someone in the royal of someone of the royal family and that's what their main bread and butter. That's what they talked about. This with the show is all about. I think that it's a fair question to say like we want to investigate that and find out how that happened. And if that's true someone should be punished but it just goes with peers because he has talked against making markle so many times in the past and he was having a really hard time with andrew. Whenever it's put to the fire about understanding the racist claims completely but convoluted. I don't think that he i mean look. Everybody has an opinion. You're entitled to an opinion. You're also on a tv show so the times my opinion and european will not match and there are a lot of people who didn't believe megan markle in that interview. I don't think that piers. Morgan should be should lose his job or feel like yes to walk away from his job because he said unpopular opinions. And i think we're all going to be in that position at some point where we say something know we might get in trouble for. But that's what we get paid for that punk stuff. We walk in off if you're such a big and bad journalists peers. You should have stayed there with your receipts. He should have sat there with andrew and talked about but you talked about freedom of speech and then when someone has their speech would they have the freedom to say you get upset and walk all that was also show. He knew i'm telling you and my only my opinion. I think that he knew that there was something coming. And he decided to take matters in his own hand and go about it and walk off win. We're talking about a man who lives in london who was defending the crown. This man's going to write a book. This man is going to become a national treasure. He already knows he looks at american. Says okay we have a guy. He might be a politician. He says the most outrageous things he becomes the most powerful man in america. Thank you have another yet.

Within district j who had similar circumstances what assistance or guidance can you offer any city residents dealing with cleanup lingering plumbing issues leaks struggling to find the plumber waiting on insurance estimates.

Legal group if someone came to you seeking to sue urquhot or the state or centerpoint or anyone else over what happened last week. What would be your advice. I would definitely look into it Because right now based on pending litigation at the supreme court level. I i do believe that there will be some opportunities to push forward With a tort suit against urkel other entities. Just because there's going to be a question of whether or not they knew or should have known of what was going to May happen and so because of that There may be a window open for those who Needs to pursue claims based on the damages to their home or or to their persons. And so i would definitely look into the facts of each case and see if there's something there because i do think that there will be a window open for individuals to file claims.

When the FBI Spied on Martin Luther King Jr.

"A new documentary out today called. Mlk fbi which traces the ways in which the fbi was surveilling. Martin luther king junior towards the end of his life as well as other black activists in an attempt to tamp down the civil rights movements directed by legendary filmmaker sam pollard. This documentary is based on a nineteen eighty one book by historian david garrow as well as documents released by the national archives in two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen quoting the atlantic. Mlk fbi arrows attempts to stifle the civil rights movement through coordinated efforts to spy on king with the hope of discrediting his righteous public image with king as with many black activists since the beginning of the twentieth century. The fbi surveillance wasn't an isolated obsession. It was part of a long running effort to keep black americans from acquiring institutional power. Pohlad told me the film traces. Exactly how the surveillance of king started how it was conducted and the effects it had on his life end quote using tons of archival footage and interviews with firsthand witnesses. The film illustrates how. Fbi's surveillance of black americans began as part of fbi director. Jaeger hoover's obsession with rooting out. Communism believing black people to be more susceptible to political manipulation as their efforts became more focused specifically on martin luther king junior and his growing influence. The fbi sought to expose his extramarital affairs as a way of discrediting him to the public and his followers but director sample are noted to npr's fresh air quote would hoover didn't bank on was back in the sixties. The press did not take the bait. They didn't reveal the personal lives of these public figures. They didn't do with john kennedy. They didn't do with others and they didn't do it. With dr king and quotes and while this documentary serves as a needed reminder. That martin luther king junior was not universally revered in his time there could be wearing that paints too negative a picture of him by including personal details like the affairs he had producer. Benjamin heddon said a our approach however quote he wouldn't be d- mythology someone he would simply be portraying him with responsibility and sympathy the way he would subject in his documentaries who was not known to the wider public and quotes and hannah georgia's said in the atlantic quote. Mlk fbi offers an important corrective to prevailing myths about king and his principles of nonviolent resistance. Which were not in fact. Widely embraced as my colleague. Van newkirk wrote in two thousand eighteen hostility toward the civil rights. Movement turned into a cherry. Pick celebration of the revolutions victories over segregation in over easily caricatured gap toothed bigots in the south and quotes and continuing georgia's. The reality was that opposition to king into the racial progress. He symbolized was restricted by region or by political affiliation diplomats and republicans alike had turned against king by his later years especially after he voiced objection to the vietnam war. It's impossible to separate the fbi's decades long commitment to tracking black activists from its relative failure to address the credible threats posed by white nationalists including those that surfaced with last week's deadly attack on the capital the fbi surveilling king and using dubious reasoning to do so isn't altogether shocking for much of the country's history sabotaging black rebellion by any means necessary has been integral to preserving white political power. The new and still contested development is finally accepting black people as active participants in american democracy and quotes.

Is it the tantrum idi. Amin finally on his way. Out the Pumpkin putin be he Pomegranate papa doc right the orange julius caesar the mango mussalini as we called him a few years ago. It's been very surreal He can't leave soon enough. I mean he got impeached twice. I mean that's crazy My friendly krinsky. Who's brilliant comedy writer in. Was you know as good as stand up comic as well said to me the funniest jokes that trump left his old impeachment for younger hotter impeachment. Very funny lots of jokes about it of course but guys. I mean this ridiculous the fact that you got to impeach a president on his way out of the fucking office. How pathetic is there. I mean it's terrible. I said on twitter. I mean trump managed to find a way to snatch humiliation from the jaws of defeat. You know. I mean that's what he's really done here. He so he's been so delusional about this whole election and everything and you know the amount of people who've drunk the kool aid has just been fascinating to me. And it's pathetic that he can't even engage an actual transfer of power. Not even going to the inauguration. We had to have all national guard at the inauguration after this idiot storm the capital which was so ridiculous. And let me. Just say something about that too. Exciting independence talk about that A lot of people kinda compared that to they said what black lives matter was You know did that. Stormed the capital. You know those people would have been shot and black. And i don't like that analogy because the black lives matter protests. Never did some shit like you know. It's not a good analogy. You know there's no reason for them storm the capital. You know To me a better analogy if you're going to hypothetical is president obama before he was reelected went in front of a crowd. Let's say of mainly black people and encourage them to storm the capital like or. Let's say he lost the election. To mitt romney encouraged a large group of black people. This storm the governor to make sure that they could not certify the vote. now that's what i'm talking about. How do you think people would react to that. You know Because the president is the one that makes that different. It's the president that was complicit in that that makes them different issue. Not that it's just a a mob. They got out of control or a group of people protesters or whatever it is. We're talking about this course of action being directed by the president of the united states ridiculous in a but we know about never would have done that. Nor can i think of any other president. Nixon wouldn't have done it. You know i mean. That's the only way they could have done it in my lifetime but he had too much sense to do something like that you them. By the time he went out and he was on his knees like praying to some paintings. If it's very bizarre. I think kissinger something like that. It's strange but i'm happy to see donald trump. Go but you know. It's this has been so bizarre. You guys this whole trump presidency. And i wanted to make one point here. If you will indulge me for a bit as a writer. I really like to focus on the words that we use and you know i can be a nerd about language and that kind of stuff and i love. Oh my nerds out there. Who are listening to me. Her language nerds and that type of thing. Scu but language is important. The words that we choose us is very important they can be very powerful you know or they can be not so powerful depending use them. But there's been a worried that we have been using with donald trump that i don't think has served a the purpose very well right now and that word is a lie and i used it as well. We've called donald trump a liar from the beginning in. He's a liar. He lies all time about things in a he would lie about the of the sky so used to lying. You just can't stop it. You know the biggest example of lying of course is saying that he won this election and landslide. Which is straight up lie. You know and you know we all call that out. It's very easy to see. It's pretty transparent. But there's something else going on here you guys. It's the people who are believing. This bothers me because allies can be pretty transparent and some lines can be easily disproven like this lie about stolen. Election is a pretty easily disproven lie. So what else is going on here. Why are people so wanting to believe this thing. That isn't true in. So i had to think to myself i should give you a little background. Majority know this one of my hobbies is Magic close up magic in particular. Remember the magic castle love distance kid. I love watching This art form. There's some incredible artists out there who are brilliant and at magic and that type of thing. And i've loved it since i was a kid right in. Magicians are involved in something. That is not quite a lie. There's a better word for it in. It's called deception. Came and it feels like it's the same thing but it's not quite. It's a little more subtle and i believe the reason why it's been hard for people like me or people on the left may be or whoever to our heads around how people could believe such lies of donald trump. Because it's a little deeper than that. Donald trump has been involved in a mass deception. I think is a better way to explain this. Rather than just the simplicity of what allies. And let me go a little further in this and let me define a couple of terms actually. Was i thought about this. Because i was reading of doing research for myself in one of my magic books and if you're interested in what this is You can send me a message or something. I'll give you more information if you're in a magic but There's this book that was talking a little bit about theory in was defining deception and read a little bit of at t to show you where i'm coming from and it says when seeking to understand what deception is at perhaps obvious place to start rebid dictionary. Harvard dictionaries turn out to be surprisingly poor sources for those seeking clarity on the topic for example the oxford dictionary of english defiance deception as to deliberately cause someone to believe something that is not true especially for personal gain. This definition falls short in several respects. I implies that truth or falsehood is bang airy either or state. I e things are true or not true and does not consider the possibility of varying degrees of truth. Partial troops subjective truths contested truths an unknown routes a second problems that the definition cannot accommodate situation in which deceiver wishes their target. To not believe a situation that is true. The definition therefore unable to comedy situations in which an entity is operating covertly in which the target to have no suspicion let alone belief this to their real identity or behavior a third more fundamental problem with this definition is that it is entirely feasible to dc target without lying and by communicating using nothing. But the truth this format deceptive strategies referred to as paul tutoring and can be lingual or temporal in nature. This important and often overlooked fact highlights the limited.

"When i graduated then i think it was much much less because we just didn't have access to great content like this to help us truly believe in ourselves brilliant. So here's what. I'd like you to kind of think about for a moment that you know if there is. That's a thirteen year old or fourteen year old or a twenty two year old listening right now. What's that one message. You could give them that. They've they heard that you know matthew pollard said this on a podcast that they could hear it and instead of being crushed by that negatively that they could use it as fuel like what would be that advice. You'd give them yes show. I think that a lot of people that are struggling the biggest hurdle that i have is that they don't have a path forward that seems to work for them. They keep getting having tapes. Show them a possible when that doesn't seem to make sense and they just feel stuck in loss. I know i was. So i think that everybody just needs to knows your path to success may just look different to a lot of the other people that you see in around you and that you're in class with and that's okay. What you need to do is discover a process a system that works for you and something the way that leverage is your natural strength and i mean the if you think back to the story the ugly duckling that ends up becoming the swan. I have to say that the may was my adversities in life that seeded the success of my future off. And if you believe in yourself and you just don't give up. I truly know that you'll be a success. While in above all the people that just had natural success. Thank you for that Matthew your latest book. that's coming out. This month is all about the introverted.

Welcome to the program made him extending to be here. Thanks so much for having me aung so before we went live. I incorrectly said. Are you a bright. you said. no. I'm an aussie so everyone. This is an australian accent and so introverts. This is the thing that we have in our culture is that you know it's the extroverts that win the introverts ally wallflowers. But that's not true. Some the biggest leaders in our history in business in politics have been introverts. Kind of your thoughts on that. You know it's interesting that everyone believes that. I think that this is like a false reality. We've just imposed on ourselves as introverts because we say amazing people on stage in sales networking leading the countries that we live in we are they must be extroverted but so often then all. They're actually the they're actually introverted. Which projecting extroversion all of them and you amazingly enough. There are the fields that we would consider so-called extroverted arenas like sales and networking yet the biggest latest people like zig ziglar interested. I interviewed his son tons ziggler. Remain introverts edge podcasts. And he talked about how much of these his father was an introvert.

And then you go to networking and people ivan meisner. The founder of being i watched networking group in the whoa. And he's also an introvert. The difference is that when they had systems and structures that follow intimate will always bait out there extroverted counterparts. The problem is if we just wing it. Which generally is what we do when we don't believe it's possible for us then we deliver saw-power results which is why we believe it's not possible for us. What's interesting is just so happens.

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency

"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

How much are we Drinking During COVID-19?

"In march of twenty twenty sales of alcohol increased by fifty four percent and stores and two hundred sixty two percent in online purchases compared to twenty nineteen. But then again people were stocking up on everything last march as they hunkered down for an indeterminate. Quarantine but what we need to know is how much of that alcohol or people actually drinking this study by michael pollard and colleagues from gemma open network compared rates of alcohol consumption before and after the cova crisis from may of two thousand nineteen to june of twenty twenty using an online survey. Here's what they learned from the more than fifteen hundred respondents. The frequency of alcohol use increased fourteen percent over the baseline rate of five to six drinks a week so it's a small increase about one day per week of drinking but a real one increases were highest in women and in middle aged adults in women days of heavy drinking increased about fifty percent or to put it another way one in five. Women are drinking more heavily an extra day a week. One in ten women saw an increase in alcohol related problems in their life. So why are people drinking more elation and quarantine stress might explain some of it but there's also been a rise in job loss economic stress and political conflict in this very trying year the regardless of the reason the bottom line is that we need to ask all of our patients if they're drinking more during the pandemic as with all psychiatric symptoms. It's easier when you intervene early before it gets out of hand.

Here's Tom, with a pick from the festival somewhere are ready. The greatness of America is the right toe protest far right? Day. Martin Luther King Jr is widely regarded as a hero. But the new documentary MLK. FBI returns us to the time when J. Edgar Hoover treated him as an enemy historian Beverly Gauge, explains the FBI Woz Most alarmed about King because of his success. And they were particularly concerned that he was this powerful, charismatic figure who had the ability to mobilize people. King's biographer, David Garrow, wrote a book about the FBI's relentless surveillance campaign. Their agents recorded King's extramarital affairs and tried to smear his reputation. The FBI is frustrated that even though they've successfully caught King In 15 or more hotel rooms, and they've distributed this behind the scenes to church leaders to reporters. Nothing's publicly happened now, as black lives matter. Activists face new government pressure Film makes us wonder how much the FBI has changed. The bureau's former director, James Comey, remains dismayed about Hoover's treatment of King. You know this about humans? What we're best at is convincing ourselves of our own righteousness. I think this entire episode represents the darkest part of the bureau's history. Filmmaker Sam Pollard previously was a director on eyes on the prize and a collaborator with Spike Lee. He's being honored at the document. I see Festival with a lifetime achievement award. MLK. FBI is now streaming on the dock NYC website For more information is a w n y c dot or g'kar flash docks.

It was Nineteen ninety-five actually passed away at the age of forty-five. He was suction an advocate for in and help so many people in his situation and you know, I actually met Travis years ago working in Boston sports radio in his dad Lazy Boy And You Know Travis is just a a good human being who used to tragic, you know situation to really help others and turn something positive from it and off and he he died unexpectedly having a procedure that usually does I guess I read correctly and it's too bad that obviously it's hard to have a long life with their but he used Every bit of the second Ziad to help other people so it was it was too bad and I don't know why if you have any thoughts so we'll start with Mark on Travis Roy.

And when what he did, you know, it was above him to to make sure that you know news and information and and the the research was it was more involved in into his everyday life and it wasn't about him.

"Junior. Still Echo today, and even if that dream has not been fulfilled, king remains a hero to many people around the world and hallmark of nonviolent activism. That said it is easy to forget that in the nineteen sixties in America. Dr. King was a deeply controversial figure to the FBI. He was not seen as an inspiration, but as a threat, the FBI. Surveillance and harassment of Martin Luther King Junior is the subject of a fascinating new documentary screening as part of the Toronto. International Film Festival, it's called. FBI and it's directed by Sam Pollard you might recognize Sam Polish name from the PBS series eyes on the prize or his many collaborations with director. Spike. Lee Sam Pollard joins me from new. York. Good Morning Nice being here mess. Great to have you here. You begin this film with the march on Washington and the opening sequence ends just as Martin Luther King is About to his mouth and deliver that speech, tell me about about that opening and what you were thinking about an opening, the film our well, we felt that it was employing this sort of set the stage understanding. This was one of the most pivotal moments in Martin Luther King's life in the life trajectory of the country with the march on Washington nineteen, sixty, three and. With a Philip Randolph introducing him, which was a great way introducing weaker. Those perfect way to sort of get you right into the film and then sort of make the connection that he was also being surveilled by the FBI Jaeger Hoover, and then go right into a speech after the title sequence it is as I said in the introduction easy in some ways to forget. How king was seen in that time in the nineteen sixties because the march on Washington emerges as key moment in the struggle for civil rights. How did authorities see that March and see Martin Luther King? Well, the FBI data who were terrified you know they thought that he was one of the most dangerous negroes in if in America at that time and that what he was doing was going to change the whole fabric of American democracy. And so JAKE WHO'VE AND FBI Really really went to enemies. To figure out how to destroy Dr King's reputation I by connecting them to then possibly being a communist with his relationship with Stanley. The former communist, and then when that didn't take whole, they've realized that when they were recording and bugging his hotel room and his his the offices in the the the houses of.

"Pollard flourished as a businessman, but in the early thirties he noticed disturbing development in the NFL and motivated him again. Aaron Dodson in Nineteen Thirty Three League enacted this gentleman's agreement that barred African American players from the League, and he took it upon himself to continue those opportunities for those black players who had proven himself that they were able to play in the national football league at the highest level Pollard's response was to barnstorm with a team that included Jackie Robinson's older brother. MAC and Paul Robeson. They call themselves. The Brown bombers named after Joe Louis Dr Charles. Charles Ross is director of African American Studies at the University of Mississippi they play out of Harlem. He was the coach of that team. And ultimately he really wanted for them. Showcase their talents, and potentially apply pressure to NFL owners to have to answer as to why black players were not on these NFL rosters to say hey, you know we're pretty successful. We're very competitive against these proteins. How come the arguing this opportunity to play in the National Football League? Fritz Pollard the third says they were more than competitive. The Brown bombers were twenty nine and oh. Never lost a game. Their talent was just so incredible. It had been sometimes team Steven. Towns agrees they were beating some of the pro teams so badly that they had the whole the score down because they were afraid that they weren't going to play them anymore, so it was a little bit more than an exhibition game when you gotTa white players that point in time playing black players, it meant something. The Brown bombers folded in nineteen, thirty, eight, one of the many casualties of the Great Depression. It's hard to know exactly how much pressure Pollard's barnstorming team put.

Pruning to Reduce Size, Pine needles and Milkweed

"People want to know, can I make this shrub or tree smaller, or maybe they've purchased a new home and they say this is too big, or this is out of control right or maybe they're supposed to be cutting these things down. I grew up in a family. My mother was a very good gardener actually, but my dad was in charge of the shrubbery, and he was one of those people who would just go out with the electric hedged Trimaran. Cut everything down to the height. He wanted it to be and when I became a professional gardener and told him this really was not the best thing for his trees and shrubs. He would pretend to let me do it my way I would go out there. I would prune the SHRUB correctly and the next time I came home. He had gone out with that hedge stripper again. He just could not give it up. Your parents have ties to the old country right? Yeah, he did anyway. My in laws were Italian. They came to this country after world. War Two and my father-in-law used to do the same thing and when I went to Italy, I realize Twi because a lot of the pruning that is done in these countries. They do that repeatedly. Even trees get either politics or or really cut back. Back hard all the time and the reason is there. Isn't that much space in most of their yards and gardens, and that was sort of an old way of dealing with plan. Let's let's take a second and explain what the Word Pollard means. When it comes to PR- tree-pruning because it's not something that's done here anymore. People might not know what it is, but if you ever look in one of those big coffee table books that show pictures of you know La's in Paris of trees in the wintertime. When you can really see the branch structure, you may find an example of polishing and what that is is when. Trees and shrubs primarily trees are pruned by just kind of a a topping cut, and so all the growth is cut back to a certain place, and they do this over and over every year, and what ends up looking like for the structure of the tree to me is always like a bunch of knuckles at the end of your hand like if you cut off your fingers, which would be a horrible thing to do at the first knuckle, and the the new growth comes out of that every year, but to correctly and healthily Pollard a tree. You need to keep up with that very specific type of pruning every season, and if you don't do that then. Where the new growth comes out of gets weak, and it can lead to breakage, so it's not something that people do here a lot, but it's interesting I. Never Thought about the reason for that being a popular technique in Europe being the space limitations properties were not as expansive right. I think that that's one reason that this practice came about however to get back to the question. Should I be cutting this back unless you're doing it every year, it's probably not a good idea just to hack a plant back. Would say not. Well, first of all it makes it. Look Right, so it doesn't. It doesn't have as attractive appearance. Second of all the plant is going to desperately try and replace what it's lost, and for trump's and trees, this leads to a whole bunch of straight up growth. The plant wants its leaves back. It wanted food factories back right and that's this is not a good time of year to be doing that anyway. This is the time of year when your tree should be storing energy. Maybe flowering, it's a flowering tree I think and I recommend, this is always my recommendation, although sometimes I do not follow my own advice. You! And if you are fortunate enough to be planting your own garden, just think about the mature size of your tree or your shrub before you buy it and I know that's hard to do. You've got this big empty space. You want it to look beautiful and full and green and lush right from the start, but you will regret it I promise you because that little blue spruce, that is so cute and four feet tall right now is going to be twenty four feet tall before you know it and. And if you don't site that properly the right distance from your house, not blocking a window. You'RE GONNA. Be Very sorry. You cannot win this battle against against Mother Nature.

Ninety Jonathan unexpectedly served and with divorce papers. He claimed he wanted her to be able to move on. When news initially broke that Pollard was spying for the Israelis, there was confusion and outrage as to why he spy on an ally.

District Court Judge Aubrey Robinson with sweat beading down his face standing beside Pollard, his hand, his wife, twenty five year old, an Henderson Pollard as the to waited for judge Robinson to address them polar turned to his wife and gave her a reassuring smile. Pollard wasn't the only one facing consequences for his actions and was to. She was battling to severe charges of her own, conspiring to receive embezzled government property and an accessory. After the fact to possessing secret US military documents, prosecutors were looking for a sentence of ten years in prison and a half million dollar fine, but while an received some of the attention, the real focus was on her husband, Jonathan. He was facing an even greater charge one that carried a penalty of life in prison. He was accused of providing US military information to Israel an act of espionage. Seven months earlier in November of Nineteen eighty-five. Pollard realized the walls were closing in on him and his spycraft work on November eighteenth after leaving his office at the Naval Investigative Service Pollard was approached by NIS and F. B. I. Agents for questioning unbeknownst to him. A supervisor had noticed suspicious documents sitting on his desk and informed the FBI. Inside Pollard's briefcase were more military secrets that he was intending to hand over to his Israeli handlers, and while transferring top secret information between agencies was common, the content inside Pollard's briefcase was entirely unrelated to the work his department did. When asked if he would go with them for questioning Pollard, said, yes, at some point during the interrogation Pollard was allowed to make a call to his wife, knowing that he was probably being monitored, he floated the word Cactus to an CACTUS was code for getting rid of all classified material from their apartment, and did just that stashing documents into a suitcase and passing it off to a neighbor. As the interrogation continued Pollard was asked to take a polygraph test as the questions continued, and the arm of the polygraph scratched. Pollard knew he wasn't going to be able to keep everything a secret. He didn't have it in him, so he partially confessed he revealed to the federal agents that he had in fact taken top secret documents and handed them off to a foreign country. However, he didn't reveal which country it was. Despite his partial confession, Pollard was allowed to leave. However, the feds made sure to keep him under surveillance. It's possible that the F. B. I wanted to see if Pollard could meet with his handler and arrest, both at the same time, whatever the reason Pollard was free, but not for.
