The firestone library special collections at princeton university has a wide collection of manuscript type stuff. That was very helpful. These circle society. Princeton has a good archives and they were very helpful to me. The state archives in trenton had a lot of stuff particularly dealing with the militia and also dealing with some of the political aspects of things that happened in new jersey political aspects that happened in princeton david library which sorely miss i was one of the last people. Use it on the day that it closed and and just a lot of sources like diaries memoirs letters of people who spent time in princeton politically militarily as well as people who lived in princeton elections of family letters and and that sort of thing so it was it was a wide ranging experience to get to know and get into the lives of some of these people.

Yeah something that people haven't looked at for decades or centuries gives.

Interview With Caty Caldwell And Jessica Odeyemi
"This is the first of a series of technically two hundred talks or roundtable conversations. Where it's not just a one on one. But one onto plus. And i am very excited about this one because we have miss jessica odor yemi once again from ibm technical product manager. And we've got Ms katy call technical program manager at facebook. Such a pleasure to have you both here to night so i just wanna start with one question for each of you in. Why don't we start with katie. Katie what's your first memory of being excited about tech my first memory of being excited about tack. It has to be. I think in my freshman year computer science course. It's like an introduction a computer science. I just remember. I had started at princeton as a chemical engineer and i was just like i was in my first chemistry class. I was like this is like watching paint dry like this is not like the chemistry. I know from high school and i was just really excited about this idea. Setting chemical engineering. But when i took my first computer science course everyone had worn me before the course that was going to be so challenging difficult and i just remember just like enjoying every assignment and every assignment just felt like it felt like a puzzle. Felt fun and i. I felt like i was spinning. Just an inordinate amount of time. Just focus on by computer science work over my chemistry homework and i hadn't even got into sort of like the chemical engineering courses yet and i was like this'll make sense. Why by studying. Something that i am like. Great like begrudgingly. Getting through versus has studying something that i love so i just remember just being super excited about the next assignment and computer science like always wanted the next one wanted to do like the extra credit. I love that and jess unless you that same question. Yeah so let's see. I got into the tech industry per se a little bit later in life. But i remember the first time i was excited about anything. Simulated was an elementary school. When i found out I don't know if you've ever heard of them ike rube goldberg projects Like i don't know if you've ever seen a movie pee wee's big adventure. But at the very beginning he has all these contractions that connect to each other to do different things. But i kind of find out found out an elementary school. There was. We were introduced to the the concept of a rube goldberg project. In thought it was so cool. So i did something similar for science fair project and i thought it was the coolest thing ever As far as you know the tech industry goes. I think that happened much later in life for me. So that probably didn't happen for me until i was working and i think we've chatted about this a little bit before but i was working in the oil industry and it just occurred to me that i was out on the rate drilling wells and that was great but there was this whole other world behind what we were doing. You know software insistence. That was kinda powering. Everything that we were doing out in the field. So i think that's when i first got into Tech per se jessica. I did the rube. Goldberg is file. When i was younger. i've loved it. I went to the. I went to the national competitions. Like and since. I'm so close to purdue growing up so i would go to indiana. Just go see what the students The cooking up so had logged. Rube goldberg did that. When i was like what is the most extravagant way to crack in a like the prices so so member game mouse trap. I love that like that.
A New Study Says Money Really Can Buy Happiness? Not Exactly, Says the Author
"So alison what's up. Well bro as the old adage goes. Money can't buy happiness. I mean just look. At the twenty. Ten princeton study by economist angus deaton and psychologist daniel. Carlson they found that happiness goes up. The more you make put it plateaus once you get to about seventy five thousand in income doesn't matter how much you're gonna make after that. Your happiness just really doesn't improve that much the red pepper takeaways from this. Dare i say landmark. Study one being that once you have the basic necessities in life more doesn't make you much happier and the other takeaway being that the wealthier you are the more you compare yourself to the joneses and are ultimately left jealous and wanting to keep up. I mean look at richard corey. He owned one half of this whole town but was he happy. No now don't you feel better. So enjoy working in his factory but then warns matthew killingsworth had to come along with his study justice last month and restore that feeling of glueck schmierer's the germans have a word for feeling bad about the good fortune of others. Killingsworth collected one point seven million data points from more than thirty three thousand participants who provided in the moment snapshots of their feelings during daily life. So essentially it was an app it would ping them throughout the day and ask them. How are you feeling right now. And this measured what's called experienced wellness. He also asked people generally how happy they thought they were their overall happiness and apparently that's called evaluative being anyway. So what did he find. Did he confirm that. Once you look at people with income over seventy five thousand dollars happiness plateaus and you just don't get that same happy bang for your buck. No matter how much money you make well as it turns out you continue to get happier as your income rises and the study didn't find any sort of plateau and happiness after a certain level of income neither in evaluated or experienced wellbeing. Why is this well. The researcher believes that higher earners are happier in part because of an increased sense of control over their life to quote him. He says when you have more money you have more choices about how to live your life. You can likely see this. In the pandemic people living paycheck to paycheck who lose their job. Might need to take the first available job to stay afloat. Even if it's one they dislike able with a financial cushion can wait for one. That's a better fit across decisions. Big and small having more money gives a person more choices and a greater sense of autonomy and quote. So what's the lesson. go out there and make as much money as you can. Because your happiness will just keep skyrocketing actually no because the study also found that people who equate having money to success are actually kinda miserable. They often work long hours and are stressed out about their time. Whoops there goes your sense of autonomy ultimately the takeaway from the study is that money is just one factor happiness and while having money certainly beats not having money. It's ultimately about the sense of control power and autonomy that money affords you and a bunch of other factors too. I mean i'll bet. Richard cory didn't get a lot of hugs growing up so bro. Go hug
Carries Satanic Book Report
"Hello and welcome to. Oh no ross. And carrie the show where. We don't just report on for in science spirituality and claims of the paranormal but take part ourselves yep and they make claims we ships. You don't have to i'm carrie. Poppy morales blocher. And were back today. To talk about a man named bob larson. I don't know if you've heard of him but i have. He has a ministry but really it's it's about him. I mean without bob. Larsen won't be much of a ministry. Yeah bob larson ministries is the name of the ministry. When we have no bob how many ministries do we know of that are actually named after the founder. There's tony llama. Oh yeah. I want to say. There's quite a few. But i can. I name them off the top of my head rail. Ism benny hen. Oh you're thinking like groups that we've investigated that have the the person's name in the title. The james randi educational foundation. There we go there. You go known cult or kidding that's always something interesting to look out for the presence or lack thereof of a succession plan granted. He's had his daughter's involved as teenage exorcist. So maybe they could step up and continue the fight. Yeah maybe yes. I'll you don't know about this whole thing. This all Systemic sexism sure. Yeah but i mean. At least he's had them perform. Exercises assumes yeah i just somehow i have the sense that they're not as passionate about it as he is though bryn. His daughter did publish book. Yeah i bought. I need to find that l. Yeah we'll have to compare her writing style to his. So maybe she's the heir-apparent maybe maybe she's the ivanka. Well i would love to tell you about a book. I recently read called satanism. The seduction america's youth. Yes okay. so he's got this book. It is black and threatening on the cover. It says bob larsen at the top and then it says satanism in red letters that are spiky instead of sarah. They have spikes that can hurt you. If you touch it. Who the teas got a fun. Little curly tail coming down from it. Yeah like the devil's pitchfork. No i assume. That's just bob larson saying i am the author and then the title of satanism rather than this being about bob larsen satanism. Now this is special brand of satan. Okay these seduction of america's youth. Okay thank her. Then what have we got on the back on the back. We have a pentagram. Oh anarchism symbol lasta. These are bad. These are these are bad. According to bob i guess equally bad none. None of these are standing out more than the other as far as designed goes. What's that top line in front of the the symbols it says. Do you recognize these symbols. Yes see page one hundred nine for more information. Oh okay that always amazes me. I just think of books. In progresses these very fluid things that it specifically mentions page one hundred nine but of course. They know that after they're done writing about that. Especially in a book when it says to page this and i think how do you know that okay. They must they write it and then they highlight it and then at the end they have to go through and make sure okay. Where does oh shoot. I added this note and change. The page layout the point is rosner secret edits. We realize these are easy problems to solve. But they fascinate us. Apparently okay how many pages carry. That's always important with bob larsen pages. How 'bout in two hundred and twenty three you know. I think if i had to say like what is the average length of a book would be somewhere in that ballpark. Two hundred twenty three. Yeah yeah seems about right. Yeah so this was published in nineteen eighty nine. The same year my fiance drew was published. Nineteen eighty nine it and oh it was princeton. The eunice did states of america. All right ice. So i was working backward with my book. The first book i talked about was jazz abell which was written in. I wanna say twenty fifteen. And then i read demon proving prayers which was twenty eleven and you started farther back in the bob cannon and now you're moving towards the future that's right time travelling here this was published by thomas nelson inc. Okay who's this thomas nelson guy and what happens when he dies who keeps publishing those books. This is suspicious. we are still very dumb. So what's bob's take his. Is he four satanism against it. Do you wanna guess cast lots. I'm going to say against just hunch year right right so if he were a person browsing the nonfiction center at your local christian bookstore in the late eighties and you pick this up and you look the back. You'd see what's a parent to do with the devil. Have you ever explained to the supernatural to your child and discussed the influence of satanism in our society. Do you dabble in parapsychology or new age philosophy which could indicate your acceptance of the colts
Interview With Megan Kang
"I guess today is making king and she is a doctoral student at princeton in sociology. And she first came to my attention because as i was scrolling through my morning news feed this headline jumped up at me about how this person had embittered themselves among stop the steel trump supporters and wanted to really understand. Just not only what they thought. Because i think a lot of us know what they think. But it's more like what's behind that. Why do they keep thinking what they think. So i immediately reached out to megan. And i said man i would love to have this conversation. I think. Our country after the inauguration of president biden and vice president harris and we're right in the midst of this impeachment trial as recording this. We're still hugely terribly divided as a country. And i just wanna thank you for your willingness. Come on talk about this. We don't expect you to have any more definitive answers than anybody else out there. But i think your experience of spending a month of weekends at an intersection in florida is priceless. And so welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for having me can so you kind of come from this approach from what i could glean from your article that you're not just looking at data you want to imbed yourself because you said either walking in the shoes or at least near the shoes of the people that you're studying is very different than just looking at raw data is that is that accurate. Yeah that is accurate. So i guess one thing. I should point out about the word in bed. I that that was a huffpost like editorial decision more nefarious than what. I think i was doing. You know like a click bait thing. Sounds very intriguing but really got me. Click we get the impression that you went deep undercover. You know it it was. I think i would say more naive in that. You know i. I saw this group of people that had been standing on a corner where i had been doing grocery shopping over winter break. I happen to be in florida staying in my partners family's house kind of on accident actually. I need to go home to southern california. Where i know you're from kobe. Rates had gotten so bad. And so i decided to just stay put in florida where things a little bit better. So we saw them there for a few weekends. I learned from the the grocer that this group had actually been out there for the past six months and it had transformed from from pro trump rallies to part election to stop the steel rallies. Right after who does the same group of people consistently there. Every saturday morning. I think like many americans like you said had been had been having a hard time grasping this divide that we've been seeing our country and feeling like i was missing perspective. And so like you say. I think the the method that i i am drawn to is just going up and talking to people and asking them and that's something that i'm i'm getting trained to do as a sociology. Phd student and particularly a method called goofy and we prioritize personal experience and getting close to the issues and trying to understand people who are living those issues experience making sense of them. I'm just trying to imagine that as you almost use the word infiltrate as you associated as you kind of dropped in on these weekends at this intersection. I'm imagining that. There weren't a lot of people that looked like you already. They're like the regulars weren't anywhere close to people of color sets to say that's right. yes. I'm a twenty eight year old korean-american woman who was raised in california and has lived in berkeley oakland chicago detroit and princeton. So that just gives you a glimpse of my political. Leanings have influenced my thinking. This is in south florida. Florida's a quintessential purple state. it voted marginally for trump. in the past two elections. I was in one of the blue counties but only marginally blue and so very different political environment than the ones that i've used to and the group of people that were there. I had seen them before. They were primarily middle aged white and hispanic floridians decked out fully and trump gear. And we're definitely looked very different and clearly have different perspectives than anyone. That i'm around
Interview With Robert Livingston
"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.

David Price on Colonel John Haslet's World
"David price. Thank you for joining me on the american revolution. Podcast thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here. you're here today. Because britain a new book. About colonel john hazlet. What prompted you to write a book about john has let at. How important is he to the story of the american revolution. Well the genesis of this book. Mike was my first literary effort rescuing the revolution on sung patriot. Heroes in their ten. Crucial days are america's war for independence. John has was one of several individuals who i profiled in that book in a series of graphical vignettes which focused primarily on the contributions that each of these people need to patriot caused during what was perhaps the ten most inspirational days in american history. And perhaps the most pivotal moment in the war for independence. Now why did i choose hizbullah. Well you know. His name kept popping up in various things that i was reading most especially in a hackett fischer's pulitzer prize winning work. Washington's crossing which is the bible for people like me who are historical interpreters or so case graphs historical interpreters. I washington crossing historic park. That's a joke. By the way you have to read that book and you have to have a decent command. Say the material in order to be able to give a tour there under the auspices of a fringe group. So the more read about him. The more i was impressed by what he did. And and the kind of character he displayed in the course of his revolutionary service. So around the time that. I was reading that book and i guess the germ if you will of the seed when he's right. Metaphor here have been planted. The perhaps do something a little more elaborate on has land. And i came across the book by fred walters. John has led a useful one. Which far as i know. That was the only book that about him. It's a self published work came out. I believe in two thousand and five. Mary engaging read. I enjoyed it immensely. But it's written in the form largely not entirely but largely in the form of a historical novel. There's a good deal of well. Frankly fictional material an air imaginary dialogue scenes useful information to improve to be very helpful to me my initial reaction after reading. That was well. Fred has the subject covered pretty well. And i don't need to pursue curl has let any further the more i thought about it. The more i felt it deserved an effort by someone to craft more conventional kind of a non fiction work about curl and his delaware regiment now. I should add parenthetically that since his first book. Fred walters did polish. What i gather is a more conventional work and non fiction account. Biography of the kernel which i believe is entitled. John has lots eric journey. But it was published exclusively in a kindle edition. I decided to go ahead and pursue this idea of trying to write a book. Hamlet just to see you know when i was starting out i was just with the mindset of well. Let's see how this goes and what looks like and it wasn't challenge to produce something. That is a book length. Because as i pointed out in the preface to the book. There's not a lot known about his pre-revolutionary war life. We don't even know exactly when it was born is a someone about whom an agent is to in the preface or introduction. We don't even know exactly what he looks like. Physical descriptions of him but there's no authentic rep visual representation of inviting eighteen artists. Not by anyone. Who was alive when he was only two images that. I'm aware which i discussed under book. Which is the coverage. The stanley arthurs painting a reversal of the image of has lead in the stanley arthurs painting that hangs in the delaware public archives building. But in any case i could push ahead with the project so ultimately when it became was an effort to inter we three things one is the has the biography. One is the story of his seventeen seventy six regimen the first incarnation of delaware regimen with a little bit about the proposed hasler regimen is the reconstituted regimen in non truncated form that was created in seventeen seventy seven after his death and then a last name of courses or general one. It's quitting this whole context of the seventeen seventy six campaign. washington's army the new york and the campaign. Which of course culminates in what we call the ten crucial days campaign from december twenty fifth. Seventeen seventy six through january. Seventeen seventy seven. When has what has killed about princeton. The other thing. I think that was pushing me to do. This was at some point. When i was writing the second book it occurred needed. It would be a neat idea. If i could do a trilogy on the ten crucial days. I'm not aware that any other offer done. So what distinguishes has led from anyone else in terms of his contribution to the patriot. Cause well he created one of the elite regiments and continental army in seventeen. Seventy six as i believe the largest regiment in the army in the early months of that year they started recruiting january by me erupt. Almost eight hundred men. They were full uniformed. And i think they were. Perhaps the only regimen in the army that could make claimed for uniform to fully armed under has let's to of his agitate thomas holland formerly of his britannic majesty's army day molded these this forced into a efficient elite fighting unit. Bouffe or get too much into the details of the door blues. I wanna ask one thing you said. We don't know much about hamlet's prewar life. We do that. He came from northern ireland right and that he settled in kent county delaware. Do we have any information about why he left ireland and why he settled in delaware. Well he may have had personal indoor political reasons leaving ulster when he did his wife died his first wife got about five years before he came to the colonies which he did in seventeen fifty seven or thereabouts. Minor standing as they may have personal issues between him and members of the congregation. Her guests may have had an emotional toll on him. Such that believe she dialed probably died in childbirth so he was left with a young daughter. This may have taken a toll on him and as such impacted his ability to perform his ministerial duties. And that may lead to some ancient. Shall we say between young minister and members of his parish more generally when he came to the colonies. it was in the context of this larger immigration movement. If you will of the scotch-irish from northern ireland to the new world during the early and mid eighteenth century with was because of the harsh economic into the adverse economic conditions under which many of them live in the restrictions rather onerous restrictions have been imposed on him by british policy towards ireland towards the presbyterian church that was regarded as unwelcome adversary adversaries. You will to the established anglican church. So i think there's a plausible logger be made. That was part of. let's motivation. Maybe dominant part of his motivation.
Economic recovery: one step forward, several steps back
"A big day. This was for the two people who will arguably be running this economy for the next number of years i speak here of course number one. A fisherman jay powell who did an online thing at princeton today in which he said among many other things now is not the time to exit. Allow to translates. If i might that is fed.

S. economy and Donahue Washington
Law enforcement response to Capitol breach questioned
"About how the pro trump rioters were handled by law enforcement after they breached the U. S Capitol, breaking down barriers and smashing windows. Versus how protesters against police brutality have been treated around the country for people died in yesterday's insurrection. Eddie Glaude is a professor of African American studies at Princeton University. He tells NPR's morning edition. There's a difference between how police interact with white and black protesters. Woman was shot and then they just walked out some of them right. On, but I could hear all across the country at least a. My Twitter feed people just in amazement. Not that they wanted the police to be violent in their response, But it gave evidence to the fact that some people are courted. The benefit of the doubt are given certain kinds of leeway. Our space and other people are not. In the summer
Scientists Have Found Some Truly Ancient Ice, But Now They Want Ice That's Even Older
"It's chilly across the country today. Highs of just fifty eight in miami and sixteen in minneapolis which makes minnesota colder than an arctic as mcmurdo station but the cold weather doesn't last forever in the twin cities and in antarctica. It does ice their last hundreds of thousands even millions of years and as npr's nell greenfieldboyce reports that makes an arctic the perfect place to find some of the oldest ice in the world. Just how old is the oldest ice. On earth john higgins says. Nobody really knows you know. Would i be surprised at this point. We had five million-year-old is i mean. I'd be surprised. But not it's not unfathomable i think he and some colleagues recently collected ice samples in antarctica. That were later analyzed and shown to be as old as two point six million years. It's beautiful stuff when you pull out. The is it. Essentially as crystal clear accepted filled with tiny bubbles the bubbles contain air from when the ice formed and this trapped air is what scientists are really after higgins says if you want to understand how gases like carbon dioxide have affected the climate throughout history. You know you can't really do better other than getting a time machine and going back in time and taking an air sample then using these ice cores which physically just trap samples of ancient air to release that ancient air. All you have to do is melt the ice. That's the sound of a research camp manager in antarctica making drinking water by melting scraps of two hundred thousand year old ice in a metal pot to actually collect an analyze the release gases however ancient is has to melt in a lab. Sarah shackleton studies old princeton where she gets to watch the trapped air bubble out and that is something that i don't know if i'll ever get sick of watching. It's actually like pretty mesmerizing and one thing. That's released surprising every time to muse. Just how much gas is actually in the ice. She says it's a lot and samples from time. Periods undergoing past climate changes could be used to help make predictions about the future. One of the biggest questions in terms of kind of the modern warming and look anthropogenic. Climate changes helmich warming. Do should we expect with the amount of co two that we have in the atmosphere now. Antarctica has been covered by an ice sheet for at least thirty million years. But it's actually pretty hard to find really old ice. John gooch is a geologist. At the university of minnesota he says while snowfalls constantly add new layers of ice to the top of the ice sheet the oldest layers at the bottom can disappear. That's because of geothermal heat coming up from the ground so the rocks are giving off heat of slowly over time and so that has the potential to melt ice at the bomb. Still bits of super old ice like that two point six million year old sample can sometimes be preserved at the ice sheets edges the older snippets of ice. That we've been able to find come from places where the ice has flowed up against a mountain range and been exposed at the surface in those spots though. The ice can be all jumbled up and messy. It's not nice layers that have been laid down sequentially over a long continuous stretch of earth's history to get a neatly layered ice sample like that. Scientists need to drill straight down through the thick icesheet so far the oldest ice collected that way goes back eight hundred thousand years. Gooch says the goal now is to drill down a couple of miles to reach ice. That's older a million to two million years old whether or not we'll be able to find it at the bottom of the ice sheet where we can recover a relatively simple continuous record. Is i guess. That's the sixty four thousand dollar question at team from china has drilling underway a group from europe. We'll start in november. What everyone wants is i-i samples that cover a key time period about a million years ago. When there was a dramatic shift in the planet cycle of ice ages. Those had been coming every forty thousand years or so but for some reason that pattern ended and it changed to every one hundred thousand years instead unto us working on climate. That's a really big deal. Eric wolf is a climatologist with the university of cambridge in the united kingdom. It's a really big question as to why that change is fundamental tower climates. Work in a way you could say. We don't really understand today's climate. If we don't understand why we live in one hundred thousand year will draw the forty thousand year world. The coronavirus pandemic basically ruins the arctic research season. That would've been happening now but starting next fall researchers will be backed down there searching for really old ice nell greenfieldboyce npr news.

See ryan o'neal or diesel buster stallone Good one is a really good one. I don't think it's stallone. Think ryan o'neal but It's a notch was asked to be in a movie like die hard when it was That was the book that was based off. Die hard to sign. Kinda wanna go with frank sinatra on this one. But i'm not one hundred percent sure but go ahead jamie but if you get it wrong then i i'm going to say i wanted stallone. Go ahead you take the guests all right. All i'm going to save frank sinatra final answer. You are correct sir. Twenty years earlier and had first writes in whatever they've but he was seventy three and luckily that would have been so. The princeton played john maclean. He plead he played. I believe that was the character name but it was the same author. It was kind of like a jack ryan type thing where he played the character from the book twenty years prior and then he he wanted the guy to write a sequel to that movie and the guy wrote what became die hard and but it was too late.

Early signing day: Latest on the nation's top 25 college football recruits
"It's signing day part one in college football with the early signing period. now which. I'm sure coaches love because they championship games and bowl games. All that other stuff. It is obviously been a very busy time for the uc coaching staff. And a big reason why is putting together a twenty three players signing class or recruiting class. I should say for the the class of two thousand and twenty one during the early signing period we are obviously huge fans of bear journal. Dot com chad. Brendel comes on this show all the time. He'll be with us tomorrow at three forty five but because it is sunday i wanted to bring in brent young who also covers. Uc's sports and pretty heavy recruiting emphasis for bearcat journal dot com. He is on twitter at. Excuse me at be young sports and He's with us this afternoon. I appreciate the time. What should i what what stands out most about this. This particular group of players the bearcats have inked You know what really stands out to me. The most i often travel on. It's just kind of the debt that that numerous positions the the high level of talent. It might not have the the top players like you know. You have last year with with prater and jean thomas and jane thompson. The four stars really really kind of flooding the top of the list. But what was really shown and this one is just the death and the amount of talent that they're able to bring in not really clear that you would expect kind of just be headliners for each class but just the amount of players that are highly rated at each physician. You're going to have numerous players. They're going to have big impact next year special teams but more further down the line right. Give me one or two players. That if i look at this bunch and i'm trying to find a kid who's gonna make an immediate impact year one or two stands out. You don't have to go with i. Brian threats i think first off. He's one of the seven early enroll. East coming in is going to be a player out of you. Know w kaufmann there and the clubs. They're gonna come in and be a player that wants to get on the field no matter what so. You're going to see him on special teams quite a lot. You're going to see him trying really find his role on the defensive side. You know obviously defense is going to have a humorous players that are going to have to be funneled out and figured out who's going to be replacing all the seniors that are currently on the roster. So yeah i think threats comes in. He has a knack for the ball defensively. He has the ability to make big plays. You know you play offense as well as the high school level but really defensively special teams where. I'm expecting him to kind of have almost an immediate impact and then outside of that You know give me. Give me an office alive because it seems. Recently we have causes there possibly had numerous true freshman. Kind break that that that you know. Talk to on the depth chart. And i think that you look at a player like luke collins where who could step in at the tackle position is one of the better fruits that program history for the bearcats. And i think he's gonna have a chance to really kinda shy know now. Land is gonna have a chance to really shine but and then of course you look at the depth as i've constantly mentioned it's going to be hard for some of these players really crack the rotation because now you see we've been able to turn you know one as one bs and constant we have players available at each position. So really specialties. Would be the place to watch out for. Maybe i'd a toxic to watch out for who could have an impact on kickoff teams kickoff return team things of that sort. There are seven kids from the greater cincinnati area around up the kids from from From from from this class from the greater cincinnati area. yeah. I talked about Gmc defensive player of the year. It of seems like that's been that the bearcats have been able to do is bring in big time defensive players from the great cincinnati area and that first off. He has a fantastic a phenomenal nickname. And it's the godfather dante. I mean better. Carry that with him and he'd better have it all the way throughout his playing career. Whether it is in the nfl anywhere he goes. Dante corleones the godfather of course from rain high school. He's going to be a cog in the middle. You shake his hand and he just completely engulfs your hand. It makes you feel small just a bowling ball of a player. And he kinda of exact situation as i say of the death i mean. He's he's the second lowest rated player in this entire recruiting class. But you've accused. Gmc defensive player of the year. you get sacks. he's going to be a big shopper. Upfront i mean forced. You gotta mentioned the land fickle. That really great story about him is is of course he. He sat down at the dinner table with his father. And he said you know data. I think i'm gonna be a bearcat and and we've said no. I don't accept that i need a little bit more. You know force behind that. And that's you know he said okay came back days later and i'm sure he fought as much force as possible and You know land is going to be a player. That i think is surprised. Because he's got the talent that his dad has of leeward hours another great flare out of princeton. I mean you just keep on going up and down the list and then of course you know you got ice. Jarman is a good outside player. And i already talked about mouth glenn. This is just going to be another one of those. The state of cincinnati is what they call it and and keeping hometown heroes around the greater cincinnati area. They're all gonna big impact on the team. All right look. I'm not gonna ask you to be an expert on every recruiting class in the country but there are folks at twenty. Four seven are relentless. Put this class up against other competitors in the put this class up against their competitors among a group of five schools. And then tell me where would stack up or how would stack up to even some of the schools that we frequently talk about them. Trying to recruit among power five schools. Right you know first off forty second in the country. You might know that at that and think okay. That seems like a high number but you break it down. This is pop. G five recruiting class top class in the afc. You know an average of eighty five point one that is second behind what last year. The eighty five point three Just just the amount of average ratings throughout the entire class you know the groups that break higher than what auburn has brought in this year. What virginia tech has brought in what you know an iowa state who is magically better than the bearcats in the college football playoff hole which. I'm sure you've completely broke down but higher than in iowa state hires than a ucla arizona state tcu. So you know there was about twenty power five twenty to twenty five power. Five software says up bearcats actually had a higher national rank. Nance so you're looking at you. Know one of the best britain the best group of five but one of the better entire classes and the and the nation he look at next year. Obviously a really early start but this is a fantastic roof. And they're going to be you know like i said it's going to be a couple years down the line. You're gonna start calling out these players by name and say wow. This is a big time player from that twenty. Twenty one

Soft Power 2020
"Am joined today on special soft power program by mongols foreign editor megan gibson monocle culture editor kiara ramallah and monocle twenty four culture correspondent and eurovision desk chief. Fernando augusto up. We have a lot to cover in analyzing who made l. top ten this year and who didn't but we should talk about first of all meghan. What an unusual year for calibrating soft power. This was because of course it was like every country on earth given the same test it was like he is a pandemic deal revert. And see what it says about you. As a nation did it make a difference on how countries will seen by the rest of the world and soft power terms. It absolutely did like you said every country was dealing pretty much the same set of problems but just as internally the pandemic kind of shed light on where countries weren't up to snuff and where there's certain systems were lacking or the social welfare net was not working so too did a show which countries were really relying on kind of coasting approach to diplomacy and soft power. Every country had to turn inward in some respect. You had to face an economy. Crunch you had to face a healthcare crisis but a lot of countries still managed to think about diplomacy and what. They're projecting abroad and to other countries and global cooperation. And that is something. I think that kind of threw up some surprises when we actually looked at the year in terms of soft power some countries that have never made our list before immediately caught our eye. Well let's talk about that. We'll come back a bit later to how different countries responded to the covid nineteen crisis. But let's look first of all at our top ten and meghan all ask you again. You were talking about surprise entries in the top ten. Who is there. The see that hasn't been before i think the first one. I'm going to go to taiwan. And i should say we've done top ten this year. Usually we do top twenty five. We quickly realized that there weren't twenty five countries. That actually made that good impression on the world. I would say this year. A peace prize in the nineteen forties. Exactly we cut it down to ten and picked the ten countries that did something notable on the world stage and taiwan absolutely one of them from their stellar leadership in actually handling the virus. Which i mean has seen the country. Even today has had quite a minimal effect. On at the helm of its citizens numbers have been tiny and given their proximity to china. Remarkable for that. That's just been something that they've really been able to step up and show that they've had good leadership and for such a tiny country and a country that has been long grappling with a very antagonistic neighbor. That's been really impressive. And i think we've also could look at another country that has made our list consistently but also small and has done really well with the pandemic and that's new zealand new zealand again a beneficiary of its leadership and of its leader. Another factor we will come back to later in the show. I wanted to bring you in now. Kiara refu- look at the top ten. Were there any entries in there that left out at you. It's difficult for me to look at this without my cultural hat on. Because i do think that cultural exports make up so much of a country soft power their own way. You know if you do have a tv hit. That really can change. The international perspective of people have on your country in the issue. We have profile of borgen. The danish show which kind of guess kicked off almost a huge facination with scanning wa. I'm happy that south korea is in the fair number and i were discussing. Grammy results on are getting their first ever kind of major grammy nomination. I mean that is huge because the grammys are essentially a us kind of awards ceremony. Yes of course it has one global subcategory but it's largely. Us fakest for a korean bond to be nominated as part of that really means that they have become not only a korean band moore global bond and that radius testament to the power of capes. I think south korea has really well deserved second-place cultural reasons but also for all the other reasons dr megan was discussing. It's very interesting. Also you you know you mentioned new zealand as well and perhaps it's a very niche reason to be very well known abroad but i do think that new zealand has got an increasing amount of really interesting. Musical acts that are genuinely world class. I'm talking the likes of zuma. Alice harding benet talking. Broods mullen williams all quite indie acts but in the the community which is very dedicated. Genuinely these are kind of agenda setting also around the world. So i think it's really interesting. That a tiny nation can produce a really interesting side of the musical experimentation side of things obviously around this table. Four nations are represented all nations with instantly recognizable and widely understood national brands. And that's my nation of australia. Kiara of italy fernando's of brazil megan's of canada which i notice is the only one in the top ten. This whole thing is just the most shameless stitch-up so fernando to bring you in brazil a country with a powerful national brand and yet you are not in the top ten this year. Do you feel especially put out by that is. Is there a case you would like to make well. No no no not not in two thousand twenty eight gave you the big buildings builder. People would be surprised by me. Because i always a believer brazilian. I'm very proud of being resilient. And i am still an and we do have an amazing opportunity to be one of the best countries in soft power so perhaps in a few years will be there the top of the list but honestly i mean this year has been terrible for brazil president. He's an isolationist. he's not handling very well. The situation in the rain forest which matters a lot for the outside world. Perhaps those of us who enjoy breathing so exactly. But i mean it. It is an issue in brazil. but i notice. We've all my friends when they say. Oh how during forest the amazon. Your president doesn't care. And of course his declaration sometimes every day he said something quite offensive to specific groups. And it's funny. I was trying to say i mean. What is brazil doing. well now we. We are student load of great things but even at football you have. Our biggest star neymar liked by some. But he's but even in brazil. Laura people don't like neymar like perhaps some aspects of his personality. So then i think even football. We're not so well liked turfing. We need to improve. I am an optimistic. I think things will change but two thousand twenty is yeah. I agree it. It's not the year of brazil. And i do think this year has been a blip for a lot of countries and as i was saying you know cultural experts from italy. Obviously still very strong italian food still eating around the world unloved around the world especially on this table but this year it was all about the countries that had cut through and what the cut through was what the stories that were resonating around. The world like fernandez. The amazon is what people were thinking about. When they thought about brazil they were not thinking of amazing beaches. Or you know wonderful culture and things like that it was the bad headlines that were really being projected around the world just finally in this first part of the show. I am going to rise heroically above complaining too much about the struggles exclusion in favor of new zealand. And just let these self evident absurdity of that speak for itself but meghan there couple of other countries which again have shoes soft power in princeton fact arguably the countries with the to hugest soft power imprint i e the united kingdom and the united states neither of the mike it and is that just about covid nineteen and all the people who happened to be leading them at the moment. It is definitely down to leadership. Soft power is usually something that is built up over years and decades so usually it can survive a bad year it can survive a wrong thinking government but in the case of the uk and definitely the us. It's not that. Diplomacy was neglected in the last few years. I mean we've seen a lot of policies that have been actually hostile to global cooperation. And i think a lot of people's perceptions of those countries have really shifted especially when it comes to the us under donald trump.
"princeton" Discussed on The Editors
"He plays fewer emotional notes in you know in his register now in public appearances. You know he can. He tries to aim for that kind of soft spoken dignified determined voice. And then he can go into his offended register where he says come on man, you know And that's about it I mean. He clearly tries to control himself more casino. The rap on Biden was never had two minutes. He would never stick to two minutes. So he one of his modes very evident in the debates and one reason that he didn't do well in the early debates was that he he was overlay cognizant of that Wisconsin late stopping self mid-sentence in apologizing any, he did did some of that. last night as well. I think we ought to acknowledge that if the president of the United States were not donald trump but someone normal, we would be looking at Joe Biden and wondering we'll who's going on. I mean, it's just it is hard to talk. It is hard to talk about because it feels mean. And of course, because we're conservatives, it probably sounds to other people like it's self interested. It's not Michael because you never said this about Barack Obama. Well, no well, obviously, right obviously because it's not true of Barack Obama there's no self interest here I think it's entirely reasonable to discuss this. Well listen the Pete listen people are discussing this I mean I've had tons of discussions about this around kitchen tables or on the decks of. Of homes that were visiting with my family. You know people are asking what's going on with Joe Biden people are passing around jokey memes about him escaping from his basement. Or you know wow, it's. Biden's fulfilling his lifelong dream of running for president coming nominee maybe becoming president too bad. He's not around to enjoy it. I. Mean people are sharing this stuff. It is out there and I do worry that he looks. Weaker and that in fact, the media is sort of like creating this whiplash effect for viewers where. You. Read Online. Oh Joe Biden knocked out of the park in Pittsburgh and then you click on the video in embedded in the story. And he doesn't look like an inspiring man in control the man of the hour who should be at the top of. The command in the White House not that trump looks great but. This. This is why I think that in this is this is not a radically new thoughts basically conventional wisdom, but the first debate is just going to be so important trump just has steamroll he has to make him look weak it has to make them look out of it and has just just seem much more vigorous. And strong and I think there's a chance he could do that. But if if Biden withstands that onslaught I think his odds of. Winning go appreciably Michael was talking a how we can see the difference in Biden because he's been in public life for so long he's also the vice, president? And if you look back to that debate with Paul Ryan and twenty twelve. You can see how Biden's anger. And Mockery. Manifest differently now, than they did even eight years ago, I thought the way that Biden treated Paul Ryan in that debate was a disgrace I understand that. Politics Ain't beanbag. American say. But it didn't get us anywhere and I'm sure it felt great for those who disliked Paul Ryan? But Biden blasted through a shouted throw it. He kept saying Malarkey and and I was astonished to learn that a majority of view is enjoyed it. I didn't but it was a deliberate tactic and it was effective in its own way worked it was control diminished a diminished did it was controlled? It was scripted in some parts. I don't see that now with by I could be wrong perhaps opened on a masterclass at the debates. But every time the biden gets into that mode he looks close to losing it to me and we saw him lose it at the. Plot in I. Think it was Michigan where he became very angry with. A work of. Gun Control. Threatened to. Strike Him. And swore at him. Do. That against trump but I do think that people. are able to sense emotion and. Affect. An extremely acute way even through television screen and and I think. Television screen. Yeah. I think. With with Paul Ryan because I don't think that Joe. Biden has that tool in his arsenal anymore. Rich. I want to ask you a question. Joe Biden, framed Tried to give a framing for the election. As I really do see as scranton versus Fifth Avenue referring to where he grew up in Scranton Pennsylvania versus where Donald Trump lives now. Fifth Avenue, and he a couple times in the in the talked about Beau Biden and in a couple other times. Instead of talking about substantive issues like trade or the middle class. he went to this. Deeper issue which I think was a big issue in two thousand Sixteen and Democrats were on the wrong side of it then. which is the issue of just respect and does he respect you as a human or does he respect where you've come from? And I'm wondering if. I'm wondering if his performance. Works. because. I think I thought going into this election year. The biggest strength was he could connect on a gut level to the kind of Humphrey Democrat voter that's still out there and is still really important to Democrats in the rust belt. National Elections in a way that Hillary Clinton didn't. But. I'm also wondering if. You. Weren't in a time of realignment and this is just changing and whether Biden isn't powerful enough to overcome. Ineffective. Media. Read the media broadcasts disdain and disrespect for this voter and his seen as. The party that the Democrats are aligned with. And I'm wondering how this plays out. I, mean I guess this is the question of the election is the Obama trump voter. Great Question I know the answer to it. I think it's the right thing for Biden to try to do I think to do that and and certainly to hit trump for his obsession with the stock market, which is I think misconceived on every level for trump to talk about that so often and related to this. This has been a constant theme of mine is not make the case that he's a horrible person not make the case you know that he's a budding Hitler, but just make the case as a typical Republican. No matter what he said or how different he seems he's pursued all the same policies would have gotten from. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. But just generally they. Can't they can't help themselves to have to go to the he's he's awful. You know obviously respect is and he's says this fundamental threat. To the Republic and I, just I I don't think that's is as good a good as a critique of him something that's more. More grounded. What do you think surely? I think the problem with. Biden suggesting that trump is a A typical Republican is. I that Joe Biden does not believe that. And second that irrespective of what Joe Biden beliefs the democratic base. And the press. Would see that normalizing trump And punish him for it. So I'm not sure that the people around him I'm going to suggest that one. Because it is it is conventional wisdom in the political class that. Donald trump is not only highly unusual which he is I say man. But that he represents gross departure from other political GNOMES. So. Michael last thing on this we earlier in the week with Jim we talked a lot about Horsera- stuff in polling but let's let's give you a shot at it. So where do you see just where you see the rice?.

"I don't think we would. So I think that sometimes it is important to force people to. Live by the laws that they wish and the words that they use, and that's what I see. This is doing. So. nbd There's this weird as Charlie's example highlights if Larry Arnn break I, president of Hillsdale said ours is racist which he never would everyone like, oh my gosh your institutions racist but there's this weird kind of. Through the looking last phenomenon here where You're presumed not to be racist if you say your institution is horribly racist. But if you say your institution isn't racist that then you're the then you really that yet then you're a racist. Yeah I mean there's kind of like this you know. This is the problem of a country that is uncategorized and as religious spirits but religious. Formation Right is that If racism in the place of Sin Right People Think, oh, the holiest guy must be beating his chest, the most and and Wearing the hair shirt. Kind of what Princeton is doing right is advertising their commitment to their religion, their commitment to redemption. By accusing themselves of this grievous sin right and then it's When Betsy Devos Barges, in there you know it's sort of like. You know the Roman Pagan Barging into the Christian confessional and saying, well, Hey, I hear you're accusing yourselves of crimes in here. You know naturally the. Priests of the new religion are going to say Your Business. So I I mean. We are through the looking glass. But we do need clarified because we do have shared law. In this country these supposed to. And you know I personally don't mind afflicting the comfortable. Princeton is this Super League University. And I don't know maybe at the end of this, we might acknowledge that in fact America is One of the least racist countries on earth I mean. That were an at Princeton. Is Not. Dangerous. For racial or ethnic or religious minorities. In fact, it's probably one of the safest places on Earth. For to be a minority. I don't know maybe we can have some real talk. So ex question do you Charlie let's assume for purposes of this exit question that trump wins a second term because he doesn't always. Obviously. Wash his out but this this letter in and of itself no matter what happens to it ultimately legally. Will change the way universities talk about themselves in naked make university careful about how they they describe their on institutional yes or no? No I don't think it will affect the way universities talk because the presidents of universities believe they're infallible. Might Inspire. More people not just those within politics or within government to coal the bluff. More. Of those on the Left I had a music teacher at school. Gruff. Northern. Who taught my sister the flute and every time she would give a recital. She'd say, Oh, it was awful. Wasn't it and he started saying yeah terrible at which point she would say, well, no, it wasn't. It wasn't actually thought went quite well, and this is what I hope more people who are retained by this performance of self-flagellation begin to do. And The D. Yes or no? No because I think people think. Betsy Devos maybe on her way out of power in a few months and the class expectations that bring about these weird. CONFESSIONS OF INSTITUTIONAL RACISM, will be with us for a much longer time. So. If if trump loses obviously it's going to have no effect unfortunately quickly forgotten wins. I think the I'M GONNA. Say Yes it will affect how university presidents another talk about. The University of they'll be more careful the condemning racism and acknowledging systemic racism but but not making quite explicitly the that that that affects. Other institutions run because these institutions they they care about a lot of things they care about the class considerations Michael Talks about they're all on board this quote Unquote anti-racist ideology really care about dollars really care about federal funding and there'll be all sorts of committee meetings just to to figure out how to. Say. All the politically correct things without making themselves. Vulnerable to this. Goes Nowhere. Going GonNa have to think about this it's GonNa make them think so I think that will have some effect if. Trump actually winds. So it's pause in here from one of our sponsors..

"Not he can't have it both ways and I think. Betsy Devos is doing. Lots of universities a favor. By. This warning shot of opening an investigation the law itself requires the Department of Education to look into this. if there's believed to be racism embedded in the structures of the university system because the university system. Is the beneficiary of so many. Federal Blandishments whether it's federally backed student loans. tax status etcetera. So I eat it. You can call it trolling but I mean we have to have some kind of shared language in this country and if he's unwilling to. Defend his. Institution. In front of Department of Education. we should find out I think we'll find out that he is, of course. I mean the the university's already put out a statement saying that it it doesn't think very much of this supposed investigation. But. Then, he shouldn't use these words so so casually or in this this kind of insane expansive way. that he's using them. but it would be it would be interesting though if the Department of Education looked into sins admissions. and made its own conclusions outside of a court about what constitutes racism. And Racial Preference at at Princeton. This is dangerous ground for university presence to be on and I I don't think we should treat this just as a pure trolling exercise even if even if it is a little bit sweet to for us to hear about it. So Charlie the way Prince and obviously will try square. The Circle is look we're not actively racist ourselves. We're anti-racist we ate racism and everything about racism We were university that exists in a racist society with racist history and we're doing all we can't combat that. But not as effectively as we hope given just how deep this racism. Is All around us. I like this because it forces those who use. This particular definition of racism. To Stop playing both sides. Our conversation around race in the United States is beset by hyperbole. And is dominated by would games. That rely upon private definitions. Of Racism. So we're told that America is a racist country. In some coaches, we're told that it hasn't improved since the nineteen sixties. And perhaps can't improve the hallmark of the Tahi. Coats approach original sin without redemption. And we're told not to quibble over the definitions. Of Racism. But this move forces. US to quibble and quibble in a way that I think has been a long time. Coming. We have laws on the books in the United States. That were passed primarily in the nineteen sixties and in the eighteen sixties and were intended to counter racism of a sort that most people recognize and understand. The. Civil Rights Act. The fourteenth amendment. These provisions that were designed to take on systemic systematic racism. And systemic will systematic racism at that time meant something concrete you could see it. It meant Jim Crow. It man segregation. It meant. Zones in which only white people. Could operate it wasn't attenuated. Disputable and it wasn't reliant. Upon. Academic jogging for its power the way racism is used now especially in academic contexts is supposed to invoke those images those ugly images of Jim Crow. And of the civil rights era. But to use a private. Definition. That most people don't recognize and that according to the speaker a plausible deniability what betsy devos is done said fine. Let's clarify. Tan, she's saying. We have laws on the books to deal with this sort. Of thing if you are telling me that your institution is systematically racist, then we need to deal with it and they're action has been owning an we don't mean that we don't mean racism in that sense. We mean it in the week can attenuated since not real races of the other racism, our private definition of racism the one we had to adopt because so much progress. Has Been made and I think that that is a good development for those of us who want the language in this area to be clear but also for those of us who would like it to be acknowledged that while America is imperfect and always will be and while there are still Some. Racial problems and while the legacy of America's. On equal racial history is still with us. In many real ways. The way in which far too many people in politics in academia and entertainment. Talk suggests that there has been no change and Michael said, this is trolling I. Think this is untrue. These laws that devices using I did Michael CEO strolling or or that people are. I think people said it was trolling I disagree, right? Sorry. Michael. Suggested people are saying it's truly These stories. Here to. Fend you're on. These. These laws are supported. And did they would like to expand them by the people who are complaining about this Do we doubt for an instant. That if say the president of Hillsdale College stood up. And said, we're institutionally racist. That a democratic administration would refuse to set up an investigation into Hillsdale on the grounds that the sense in which it was being. said. Wasn't clear ever conservative Christian college had a president who stood up and said you are. Far Too many abortions take place in this town and. There are disproportionately of minority children we are institutionally racist. And do we think that?.

So Mvp yesterday we all got the best news of the year perhaps the decade perhaps news of the best thing. The Department of Education has ever done and long storied history or Princeton's university as president had sent out a missive about how racist Princeton is. This the prospects of African American students and the Department of Education a sent a letter saying, well, you know that's true. You're in violation of Civil Rights Statutes in your funding is at risk. What do you make of that? I mean. Like A smile broke out across your face and we read this right I mean I think it's heartening. People were saying that this is just trolling by the Department of Education. I don't think that can possibly be true and. Which is that? The president of the university got up and said quote. Racist. Assumptions from the past. Also remain embedded in structures of the university itself. For any gave some examples about You know what the? Teachers as far as its curriculum, it has lots of programs around European languages and culture, but only a small program about African studies. But. You can't just if you're university president the words you say either means something or they don't write like either he is correct that there is racism embedded in Princeton, and how. It operates. Or there's.

We'll talk about his relationship with Marshawn Lynch with marches. Peter's dad but also we got into his record breaking performances at Princeton and why he might be super underrated headed into the NFL draft. Coming out of the Ivy League. Kevin Davidson hopefully get scooped up.

Let's get it have how you doing. Great appreciate having me in Looking forward to meeting the FAM- awesome while the family is excited to have you and I was excited to have you. I texted a right before. When we're doing our research and you know you seem like you might just be a casual Ivy League quarterback but I did a little digging and you seem to be like the most interesting man in the world like how does someone like you. End Up friends with marshawn lynch coached by Marcus. Peter's dad tell us all about that. Yes it was a pretty story. In highschool ended up at a local high school. My town called Santa Rhone Valley After my sophomore year ended up wanting to expand my horizon and the football world and There's a high school about forty minutes away in West Oakland California called McLennan's and like you said coach Biomarkers Peter's dad and marshawn Lynch Josh Johnson. And Marcus Peters were around during every one of my workouts in the summer so it was just an incredible community that is able to To be a part of and it really Grew me as a person and you know it's been just unbelievable to stay in touch with those kids and a hell of an experience. Talk to me about what it's like hanging out with a person such as marshawn Lynch because he is obviously one of the more. I guess we'll say out there or lack of a better word players we've had in the NFL obviously one of the more successful running backs of our generation. So is it just you guys shooting the Shit eating skittles all day like wh. What is the hangout session with? Marshawn lynch lack part of it. But no it's deeper than that. He's a really smart dude. He went to Berkeley. And had I think a really really Gpa that no one really knows about I think he just doesn't really enjoy the media. President he just thinks that they twist thought of things and I can respect that but once you get into the room with people who is comfortable around. He's like I would call him the most interesting man in the world just Know so much about business and things outside of football that no one really understands and it's also interesting to note that he was GonNa be our Commencement Speaker at Princeton For our senior graduation. So unfortunately that's been cancelled because of Because of corona are we think it's going to be cancelled officially done it but Yeah print was like going bananas. 'cause he was gonNA talk to us from our affiliate. I can just give you his speech right here on the air care of y'all mental. Take care of y'all chicken that's pretty much everything everything. He would outlined in his Princeton commencement speech. But I mean you've had a very interesting journey. You grew up in California. Obviously how on earth does one find their way from California to Central Jersey at Princeton University? Yeah Good Ole Central Jersey at the enacting place. But I'm probably I'm out of out. Jersey sounds right by there you go. That's better though. Everyone says there's no such thing as Central Jersey so but anyway we But Yeah I transferred climates and at a great first four games Through for twenty one touchdowns and eleven hundred yards or something around there and then everything that we played basically complained that I was there because I transferred from a public school to public school and kind of against the rules in California. The State of California actually came came after me and ended up suspending me for a year of all high school sports. 'cause I went to play basketball there as well It's like go Bill Russell High School so their basketball program's been just incredible for the past fifty years But yeah I mean I got suspended. So that hurt recruiting a lot. So I ended up kind of looking to schools more on the east coast. Instead of simply looking in California I wanted to go to Stanford as a young kid so Starting to look at ideas and visit to Florida and got some interest from Missouri. Just kind of a random school Saudi. So that's that's kind of expanded expanded my research and ended up at Princeton. Wow while the here that saw her. You've said that you were a hooper in high school Jack and I previously when we first started out this podcast we check and I both play ball obviously recreationally because we talking to microphones and aren't in the NBA but took so who's your who would you say your NBA player. Comparison is in basketball will. What's your what's your style game. Kevin Love Period in Granular Kevin Love or Cleveland Cavaliers Rule. Spec on the day the twenty like that you board like that Allah. Oh yeah no one wants to play against me. That's interesting so I went through your numbers from this past season. And you're very impressive. Abbas most excited about limiting the turnovers. 'cause I chief I just always tell people like turnovers from quarterback so detrimental but my favorite number is when he set the Ivy League record for touchdown passing game with seven against Bucknell. Like even I once again we talk into a microphone so we have a lot of experience watching sports and playing video games and when used to play. Nc Double A. Fourteen you threw seven touchdowns like you could do that in video game. No one does that in real life. What did it feel like? Actually throw seven touchdowns in one game was pretty special and honesty lost. Count like at half time I don't know how many how many you have. Yeah the first half I think. Three or four I think four But it was a close game. So that's why I was able to stay and I think I got pulled after the couple minutes into the fourth we we we've got twenty five or thirty But Yeah No. One told me that I broke a record until the end of the game. I didn't even know that was. I didn't know what the past record was But it was actually a kind of a rocky starts in the game. I think we went three and out in the first series and then went on a long drive in the second series but ended up having the time So everyone was kind of stressed out. We were down Fourteen th seven at one point so it wasn't like a close game and then we just kind of pull it together and ended up having my full day. I love that I would love. To throw one touchdown in a college game seven's not to shabby so even I enjoy one thing about all the prospects we talked to. We re the scouting reports and we love to pick apart these NFL scouts who just talk about the most irrelevant thing. So I'm reading that you might not have the largest hands so we talked to someone in handled I F. We talked to have. We've talked about noses ears everything. How much does it bother you when someone doesn't just look at the film and see what you did in your year and I know people downplay the fact that it was only a year film and then they just want to point to your hand sizes if Patrick Mahomes and Joe Boroughs hands are not as well the not the largest like what do you think about all of that right? I think it's It's pretty comical. I mean Joe Bureau was quarterback to at the combine. I was quarterback three as far as Alphabetical so. We talked about it quite a bit. And he showed me his tweet right when he put it out About him having to retire early because of small hand so No it's actually funny 'cause my agents night talk about it quite a bit but I like super long hand and from the basketball. My thumb just doesn't bend so the measurement Super Small But the hand side with still Pretty Darn large so It's something that all these coaches come up to me and they're like your hands measures small but they're large so what's going on here okay. So that's amazing so going forward. What are we GONNA do to increase your hand size? Do we WANNA order in some very sketchy Russian. Pd's what do we want to do? Because we talked to a few people the stretchers one person to one person and narrow hips. So now me and Jacker on a mission to crack the code in terms of widening hips. So what do we think the three of us? We can put our heads together right now. How do we want to make Kevin's hands Baker to plasma great question been thinking about for forever? Now I mean you you.

"She'd right now. I'm wondering when you think about where. Princeton is relative to the rest of the country. I remember having a conversation earlier this year where we couldn't imagine why you guys weren't ranked in the top twenty five and that's obviously changed now. Does it still feel like people are underrating you guys and what feels like a successful goal when you think about in? March into March. Yeah I I think we. We think we're underestimated underrated. But I do think that gives us a chip on our shoulder and makes us wanNA play harder. Prove ourselves more Out of place like Princeton. I think people don't expect us to. Have you know the best defense in the country and to have this really great win streak and like you said are only lost by two in overtime and so? I think we have been playing with that chip on our shoulder to keep moving up in the ranks and keep proving ourselves and going into March. I think that's GONNA be. That's GONNA come in handy for us. you know where we have really big goals for ourselves. We WanNa make history at Princeton In my time here we haven't made it past the first round and I have a good feeling that this is the year we could go. We could go farther in the tournament. I think we have all the all the all the pieces in place to do that. we just have to execute our game plan and play like we know we can But Yeah I mean we're we're looking to the sweet sixteen we WanNa go far and this weekend is the first step in doing that. just proving with two more games that you know where the best in the Ivy League and we want to win the tournament they marches marches a really exciting time. And I know We have we have a lot to prove going into it. And let's just be clear lost by chewing overtime at Iowa team that is projected to me a top four host essentially a game on the road. I A very very close loss to a team. That certainly has had a very successful season as well. Well are bacteriologist over Typos. Tooks has a projected right. Now that you guys would be a five seed and playing in an Iowa city pod. She'd have the chance to avenge your own sat around a pretty good way to do it now before you do to talk about just the the elephant in the room. Obviously of the issue is Toronto. Virus Gone area talking a little bit about Classes being canceled. And you're going up to Harvard this weekend. It's obviously in doubt what kind of crowds will be permitted whether it's the idea that tournament the NCAA tournament. Then I keep thinking about is. Just you've played your whole life to get to this point in college and it might be that these moments you know these. These biggest moments of your career to date are gonNA happen. Not with the cheers of a crowd but an empty arena. How do you as an athlete prepare for that? And how strange is that going to be? Yeah I was talking to Taleb our other senior about this and it is weird that you know our senior year you work so hard your whole career for you know the the full arena the chain fans and your family there And I guess we still don't really know what's going to happen but You know once we know we'll start. We'll start thinking about how to mentally prepare for that The good thing is you. Know we we scrimmage in practice so we know how to play and compete without you know crowds and and I think you know. We'll play just as hard no matter what I think. It's just one of those things that especially the senior you do like dream of these big moments and it. It's sad to see those that they could be taken away because of Krona virus. But you know we're we'll still you know play hard as we can and and try to rally together and use the energy of our team to to push us through those games and I mean I'm pretty sure. Even if they banned all spectators your parents would find a way to break into the arena. So I think you have guardless. They sneak in there sadly bell. Elry like I said absolutely wonderful season. I before I let you just briefly briefly if you'll indulge me. Spn had a list of the top twenty five players in the country. This came out a few weeks ago and I was blown away by the idea that you wouldn't be on there At the end of the day the list right they they don't ultimately defined it will make a difference Of people were kind of laughing at the idea that you wouldn't be on the list but I wondered you. Let that motivate. You let it empower you as player. How do you sort of approach them? Yeah I don't try to pay too much attention to the list But that one definitely did motivate me. Because I just I want to be the best player I can be and I think I've proven myself over the past few years here at Princeton and the season and It's like it's fine but it definitely does push me into play harder and and to be to be a better player If they were to make that list again there would be no doubt that I'd be on there so Yeah it's it's motivating. It's it's it's a list and it's arbitrary and I try not to let it bother me but yeah it's it's something that I think all athletes are pushed by you know being underestimated and Yeah that's that's what it's done for me. Losing Kyla Charles and Maryland. Who's fighting to be a big ten player of the year was I. Let's do this. Maybe it's just a DMV SITE. Maybe that's just anti regionalism but here's what I'll tell you. Come April there's going to be a list at the WNBA draft and you will certainly be in the first twenty five on that one in elementary a whole lot more. But I yeah there are some championships to win so pell bell alary. I'll leave you to it. Thank you very much for your time and We really appreciate here. Lock Domas basketball. Thank you so much..

"princeton" Discussed on American Revolution Podcast
"Hello thank you for joining the American Revolution Today. Episode One twenty six the battle of Princeton over the last last few weeks we covered general Washington's rate on Trenton. Then in response General Cornwallis brought an army of over five thousand regulars and Hessian Down Down Into New Jersey to restore British control the continental army had pulled back to Pennsylvania but once again returned to Trenton a few days later the the Americans had blooding Cornwallis advance on Trenton and slowed the column so that they did not reach the town until a few hours before nightfall. Now now the British inheritance combined actually had fewer soldiers in the Trenton area. Then did the continentals. And Militia Cornwallis had about five thousand men. While Washington commanded. Nearly seven thousand Washington also had the better defenses Cornwallis however had the best regiments in the the army with him while Washington was relying on relatively untested militia for more than half of his force Cornwallis also had more artillery. Laurie now as I said the continentals had a good defensive position on Asan Pink Creek and had held off several British attempts to take the bridge edge over the creek on the evening of January. Second Seventeen seventy seven even so. Both sides expected that the British would be able to force their way across the creek the next morning and take the battlefield if they did that the continentals had a difficult line of retreat and would have no easy way get back across the Delaware River if they were in the face of the enemy. This was a huge risk for the continentals. It gave Cornwallis the chance to capture the entire continental army once and for all General Cornwallis held a council of war with his top generals on the evening of January second. Many of them had urged night raid to prevent the continentals from slipping away at night like they had at the battle of Long Island and again at Harlem Heights Cornwallis however did not want to launch a night attack unfamiliar ground without good enemy intelligence. If if the enemy gave up their defensive position overnight then the British could just chase them down in open field if not a dawn battle made more sense. Washington also held a council of war. His generals debated whether to stand and fight or slip away fighting carried. Hey good chance that the whole army would be captured. Leaving without a fight would make the first battle of Trenton looked like a lucky raid against a Hessian outpost but would not dissipate the conventional wisdom. That the continentals could never really stand up against the British army then. The council also considered a third adoption. The idea for this third option is usually credited to a newly promoted Brigadier General Arthur Saint Clair from Pennsylvania. Nia He proposed to pull out that night but then take a back road to the north around Cornwallis army. An attack is smaller reserve Sir Force at Princeton. Such surprise attack would have a higher chance of success against a smaller and unprepared enemy. It would also mean. The continentals could avoid battle with the main cornwallis force without looking like they were simply running away. It would also put the army in positioned shouldn't hit Brunswick as well. Now there's pretty good evidence that Washington was already preparing for this option before the council met. He likely we discussed the plan. With General Saint Clair ahead of time wanting some other officer to make the initial proposal. After some discussion the council came came to a consensus and Washington approved the plan once again. The weather cooperated to an astonishing degree with the continentals. Witnesses reported the night was much darker than usual. Despite there being a partial moon and no clouds more importantly the muddy slush that had slowed the British wagons all day disappeared as the temperature dropped suddenly after dark. The roads froze solid making travel much easier. The Americans kept all their campfires stoked and used picks and shovels to convince the British only a few hundred yards away then they were digging entrenchments for the morning battle. Meanwhile the bulk of the army packed up and quietly marched away. Commanders organize the troops at a whisper and did not tell them where they were going. They only had orders to form up and March away. The quiet movement men of so many men down a narrow dirt road took time although the movement began before midnight. Some troops did not move out until after two am. I am despite the American efforts. British centuries and their officers reported the movements back to headquarters Cornwallis however thought the movements indicated a possible night attack as a result. The British remain alert but in camp and on the defensive for the Americans. The Dark Knight brought problems of its own as the men marched now dark road toward an unknown destination. Most of them had no away via that other units. Were doing the same thing. One Group of Pennsylvania militia spotted several companies of continental's at a crossroad and mistook them for Haitians more than thousand militiamen panicked and ran away ending up in Bordon town the next morning some soldiers never received word of the move at all Benjamin rush had been working with military surgeons to help the wounded that night when they woke up the next morning they found the camp almost empty assuming the continentals had retreated to board and town in an attempt to get back into Pennsylvania Russian his colleagues colleagues headed south in an attempt to find them before the British took the camp the bulk of Washington's Army however remained on task. The army traveled traveled up a lesser used road off to the east part of the journey required moving through a forest where treat them spayed passage. Difficult another part required moving through swamp which fortunately had frozen sufficiently to make passage possible for many of the men. This was their the second night without sleep. Some reported nodding off while marching despite the conditions of the passage and the men. The army travel about out nine miles in five hours arriving at quaker bridge shortly before seven. Am about the time. I late began to brighten the sky. General Washington had hoped to be at Princeton by dawn but that was still two miles away. quaker bridge was not strong enough to handle the wagons. Agony and artillery leading to delays in getting the equipment across the river is the main army struggled. Washington ordered general. Hugh Mercer to move West to the main road used by the British to travel between Princeton and Trenton. Mercer's assignment was to destroy the bridge on that road and set up a defensive line there. So that once Cornwallis realized the Americans had left Trenton and were attacking Princeton. He would be delayed. In getting his regulars and Hashes back to Princeton Mercer led a detachment toward the bridge while the main army continued up the road toward Princeton about the mile from the bridge however the Americans discovered a large column of British soldiers. Crossing the bridge headed South this turned out to be a reinforcement. mccollum led by colonel. Charles Mahamoud Cornwallis had ordered Mahu to bring his force from Princeton. To tren for what he thought would be. Good morning battle in Trenton. The two armies discovered each other. They immediately form lines of battle and prepared to fight. Neither knew exactly how large urge the other force was. Who'd commanded about four hundred and fifty men including eight artillery pieces and some cavalry Washington deployed a force under General Daniel Green which including Mercer's men total about fifteen hundred but the pace of battle initially favored the British British Green ordered Mercer to confront the British force? Both sides rushed to take possession of an orchard in the area between the two armies about fifty British bruhns reach the orchard I but were pushed back by about one hundred and twenty Americans. Both sides sent in reinforcements. Events with two lines forming about forty yards apart both began firing volleys standing their ground and taking heavy casualties. The British were outnumbered at this point. But ordered a bayonet charge. The Americans who largely did not have bandits began to fall back doc. General Mercer attempted to rally the American troops but got knocked down by a British soldier who demanded his surrender rather than surrender mercer lunged at the soldier with his sword. The British band edit him repeatedly and left him for dead on the field. Second in command. Commander Colonel John Hazlet who had fought her ROIC LII in multiple battles in New York took a shot to the head and also died. Some British soldiers mistook General Mercer for Washington and thought they had killed the American leader in the face of British bayonets and the deaths of their officers. The survivors of Mercer's force began to retreat in disarray as they fell back they ran into colonel. cadwalader advancing Pennsylvania militia who had been coming forward to reinforce them the frightened retreat of Mercer's men caused part of the militia to turn and run as well but part part of the line stood and fought including an artillery battery. That fired on the advancing British seeing the American line hold. Some of those soldiers older who had initially turned around to begin to flee turn back and return to the lines about that time. Washington himself arrived on the field of battle battle. Now I'll be the first to admit that Washington has some limitations as a strategist but no one could compete with him as a field officer for for bravery and leadership. Washington rallied the line and his men toward the enemy. Washington was about thirty paces away from the enemy still on horseback leading his army into a charge. One witness reported that the British line fired volley directly at Washington. The soldier witnessing this event closed his eyes and turned away thinking Washington would certainly have died on the spot but when he looked again Washington remained remained on his horse unharmed still encouraging his men.

Giving the Americans and overwhelming numerical advantage Washington clearly elated with the win shouted to his men. It is a fine Fox chase my boys.
