Ruth Wilson quit The Affair because she 'didn't feel safe'
"To talk about Dominic West. But by way of Ruth Wilson and I know you're saying to yourself self. Who are these people? These people? So Ruth Wilson, you were may remember from Showtime's the affair. Now I guess back and I did not watch the show. I have not watched the show. I apologize. But apparently back in 2018. Her character was randomly spoiler alert. She left the show. I'll just put it that way. And apparently, there were some rumors that she left the show at the time. Due to some pay disparity between her and Dominic West. She eventually told The New York Times that that was not true, but she otherwise quote and I'm quoting Perez Hilton now kept mum on the subject. Except to say, quote. There is a much bigger story. Well, apparently this week she's talking more about that story. She didn't interview with stylist Is that like a magazine about stylist? Probably. I mean, you hope, a fashion magazine for sure, she said, Quote. The reason I haven't gone into the affair meaning like what happened there. Is that I haven't worked out how to discuss it. There's a lot of noise and anger surrounding it. And really, the power rests with me to choose how I discuss my life, and my experience is what's important to say is that I did speak up. I did have a voice. I did stand up for myself. There was a situation on the affair where things didn't feel right. And I dealt with them and I managed to protect myself. Well, that That's kind of a shocking statement. Yeah, and this goes back to a story that made headlines at the end of last year, where there were accusations that the show run around the affair. Was running a hostile work environment. Didn't did this person leave or there was some sort of all happened at the time because I vaguely remember. Well, the parent when Ruth Wilson left, it was shocking and one of the things um the reasons why she left is because there were issues with nudity on the set. They're issues. I believe, with some of the sex scenes that were happening at at the lead of the show Runner and one of the show's executive producer, So it was just it was just a gross situation for Ruth Wilson, allegedly and since he left so when she In this most recent interview when she talked about it again. She didn't give a ton of specifics. But again, she does say that she, you know, spoke up at the time and that she defended herself and that she dealt with it or that the issue was dealt with. According to Let's see, Um I don't know if this from the same interview quote it was before me, too. It was before Harvey Weinstein. And yet my instincts were very clear and strong about what I felt was wrong. What was going on What I didn't feel safe about And that refers. I'm assuming to the piece you just ah, red or shared about the nudity that there was a lot of nudity requested of the actresses in a way that did not make her feel comfortable right and saying that there was a much bigger story on the set of the affair, the Hollywood reporter did it. A feature on Ruth Wilson last year and so just to put it into context, a little bit of a timeline she left in 2018. Ruth Wilson left the affair in 28 team, and she was saying that she brought up these issues, you know, like you, said Bradley before me, to which I would say the fall of 2017 is when that really kicked off with the Harvey Weinstein story. Being published in The New Yorker in The New York Times. Allegedly there was an unreported 2017 investigation by Showtime's parent company, CBS into Ruth Wilson's accusations about what was happening on the affair. And that she is restrained by a non disclosure agreement, which is why she's kind of talking around this issue. What I did find interesting is I think this comes also from that 2019 Hollywood reporter piece. In one surprising twist of the tale, the show's executive producer and director, Jeffrey Reiner, was said to have asked Lena Dunham and a dinner party. To persuade Wilson to quote Show her bleeps or at least show some bleep. Yeah. Or bleeps being the upper experience and her bleep being the lower experience meaning like, Can you just get her to show some bleeps? Which this is why I'm so glad that we had the meet to movement. Sure, women everywhere, like Yeah, thanks for showing up bread, But we've talked about this at length It sound like I'm just arriving at this, but To just think about the reality of what women had to deal with, and probably still do to a certain extent, you know, although I would hope post me too less. In Ah, smaller capacity. Just the like. Overt use of their sexuality or bodies in a way that, like other people wouldn't give a second thought to but are now having to question like. Is this a good use of nudity? Is this something we would request of our male co stars? Where it just seemed like women's bodies were. It's just a given. That at some point you should show your breasts or be naked in a you know a scene If you're doing a dramatic role, for example, writer at the very least, the probability if you're female body, somebody who's going to ask you to get nude whether or not you do. It is a whole other thing. But the proposition of having to do that, in order to fulfill some dramatic obligation is just like the probability is high. Wass. What I also think is interesting is here we have again a person connected to Dominic West. And, Ah, this is a story that I feel like we're going to continue to hear about not necessarily The story of Ruth Wilson. But the story of Dominic West And maybe not specifically as as concerns the affair but thie actual affair that Dominic West had with Lily James. And you've got to believe that Lily James was not the first woman that Dominic West had an affair with
Trump mounts bizarre and misleading White House return despite warnings
"President trump left one of the world's most elite medical centers on Monday evening at Walter Reed. Even as his doctors acknowledged that they were entering uncharted territory and citing privacy laws continued to withhold vital information, the could eliminate the president's prognosis for recovering from covid nineteen. Trump's determination to appear in control in the waning weeks of presidential race in which he is trailing significantly left unclear whether he or his doctors were calling the shots especially because members of his medical team continued to Cherry pick what they're sharing with the American people they say, his oxygen levels are normal and he has no fever, but they refuse to answer questions about results from long scans when his last negative test was or why he's receiving the steroid decks methadone, which is typically reserved for patients with the most severe cases. Several doctors told my colleagues Francis Sellers Lori. Arianna Cha and amy. Goldstein that the president has returned to the White House at a fraught moment in his recovery before he has escaped a period when some patients are known to crash Harlan Krumholz. A cardiologist at Yale says the problem with covid nineteen is that people's conditions deteriorate rapidly even after days of Stability Jonathan Reiner George Washington University cardiologist said that in an emergency, the White House medical unit can do what an emergency room can do in the first fifteen. Minutes someone can be resuscitate and stabilize during a heart attack, for example, and then transferred to a hospital. Still for ongoing treatment, he says, it would be wise for trump to remain hospitalized at a Monday afternoon news conference White House Dr Shawn Conley said the team is cautiously optimistic and hung guard about trump's discharge but he said he's looking to this weekend for assurance that trump has cleared rough waters and he said he won't breathe a sigh of relief until next Monday. Daniel call in infectious diseases expert at the University of Michigan says people of Trump's age and with similar severity of illness to the extent that we know and to the extent that the White House is telling us the truth usually have a pretty slow recovery with weeks and sometimes months of cognitive difficulties shortness of breath in severe fatigue. Like other experts call said, it's highly likely that trump has cova pneumonia. At the briefing Conley selectively invoked health privacy laws known as hippo when questions arose about the president's respiratory system scans or whether he remains infectious. For his part trump minimized the dangers of the virus that has killed more than two, hundred, nine, thousand of our fellow Americans President tweeted quote don't be afraid of covid. Don't let it dominate your life. We have developed under the trump administration some really great drugs and knowledge I feel better than I did twenty years ago. Health officials from current and past administrations agree that the White House medical unit can bulk up on staffing and equipment to ensure that it can care for again at least stabilize a patient who takes a turn for the worse. But a former White House doctor tells us that it's really inefficient and very risky compared to staying Walter Reed.
Star Wars: Squadrons Review Round-Up
"Let's start with the Review Roundup for Star Wars squadrons right now are not right now I should say eight forty, one am Pacific Time. So about an hour and a half ago on Metacritic Star Wars squadrons was sitting in eighty one. Now there's a bunch of Asterix here. This is the pink version, and if you went there, there's only. There at the time was only like I would say less than ten reviews up because, of course, Star Wars squadrons, a multiplayer game and the multiplayer servers just going live tomorrow. There was a thing yesterday for press plane which we did. You can hear about on the games gas share a little bit about ear as well but lots of the reviews not posting but the ones that did very positive PC Gaber end gave it a ninety Ian Bordeaux says. But if star wars, squadrons had simply Ben Tie fighter with prettier skies to look at, it would have already been a winning proposition. What it is in fact is a great looking technically demanding starfighter Sim, that provides a dynamic new spin on space dogfighting without any of the usual monetary cruff that companies live service games. Today time will tell if truly has the depth and skill ceiling to give it give it staying power, but it's made a damn fine first impression. If you've ever wanted to become an ace x wing pilot or fondly remember your time in a dos based fighter cockpit star wars squadrons is a must play of twenty, four seven gave it. Four out of five stars, Alex Donaldson wrote, this is the triumph of squadrons. It's clearly lower budget title and easy as other. Star. Wars episode but it comes with a price to match. It has more strained tensions within that. It's still squeeze in as much detail as much fan service and simply put as much content as possible squadrons feels like more of the more than the sum of its parts more most importantly it does exactly what it set out to do, and it does it very well indeed, it's EA's smallest scale console stores title yet, but it's also it's best flea battles a little long and sometimes listless, but some will no doubt pine for. An some we'll find for a little bit more content. I personally would have really liked to see a twenty player or more death match mode, but it's nevertheless difficult to really criticize such a tightly wound complete package as such. It's an easy recommendation and then game informer gave an eight point two. Eight, point, two, five Asia Reiner over there says squadrons single player May fizzle out frequently like a malfunctioning hyper drive motivator but the multi-player continually impresses and is worth the price of entry alone flying in formation with a group of friends put a smile on my face and that was just the calm before the storm when the laser start flying squadrons, multi player can be nothing short. Of exhilarating and a great test of skill pushing players to be clever in the cockpit to out thinking outmaneuver opponents given just how enjoyable it is to pilot an x wing Tai fighter this is a multi player experience I will continue to go back to even if he doesn't support it with new content, it's just fun to play providing something different compared to most today's competitive games.
Fauci disagrees with Trump on coronavirus
"The United States has not rounded the corner that is from Dr Anthony Fauci. The Nation's top infectious disease expert delivering a blunt specifically worded rebuttal to the president to, of course, Said said the other day that the US is rounding the corner on the pandemic. I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned the Statistics Andrea. The. Disturbing. Disturbing. The US Steph told you shy of two hundred, thousand number of new cases hovering around forty, thousand, a day and an influential model. At the White House sites all the time predicts the death toll will more than double by the end of the year. Four hundred thousand people dead by the end of December, and yet trump's behavior continues to scorn mask-wearing or social distancing his rally yesterday you see it three thousand supporters more than that. Actually packing an airport hangar in Michigan without masks without social distancing. And and you might say why why are they doing that? It is clear. They are following the leader the person that they are there to support. They are following the president just listen to them and then listen to the president. Care for it. It's that simple. I don't see it for myself. I am young and likable are year are not young. People are very strong. It gets this horrible disease. Temperature taken already, and I'm not saying not necessarily here. Everybody's been tested and I've been tested a hard time understanding people when they. So that's why I don't wear. You can hear me right now I can hear you you're going to have to take. You can take it off your your health how many your wet Well if you don't take it off your very muffled. Those trump supporters Jim Acosta speaking to them getting those very powerful Soundbites Jeremy Diamond is out front and Jeremy You know very strong words from Dr Voucher tonight specifically using the words rounding the corner. No, we're not right. Exact words the president used to rebut his claim. Yeah, no questionnaire in Doctor FAUCI typically tries to avoid directly contradicting the president's or directly confronting and putting himself in opposition to the president, and it tends to happen quite a bit simply by the fact that the president often downplayed the threat of this virus in Dr, Fauci is stating the facts, but it is notable to see dumpster here directly contradicting the president saying, I have to disagree with him on that and he does because ultimately Dr Foudy does rely on. The facts you relies on the science and the facts and the science show that the president by any metric you consider is wrong when he says that the United States is rounding the corner on this and of course, we started this week Erin with the revelation that the president had intentionally misled the American public about the deadliness of virus. He said that he likes to downplay it, and what's remarkable is that we are finishing this week with the president continuing to do. Exactly that because the president is saying that we around the corner, he is saying that the numbers of corona virus cases are plummeting. When in fact we know that we are at a plateau of nearly forty thousand cases nearly a thousand deaths per day and Dr found she is warning about a potentially difficult fall and winter, and of course, it's also remarkable when you see this rally that the president is holding three thousand more than three thousand people huddled together very few. Of them wearing masks and obviously it's coming from the fact that the president in his rhetoric has really downplayed those things. Yes he has acknowledged in in recent weeks. That mask wearing is important. He is called a patriotic, but he is still not modeling that public health behavior, and of course, for months on end, the president downplayed some of those significant public health safety measures and as you just showed in that video, the president's words. So often being mimicked by his own supporters. Jeremy Thank you very much earlier. We spoke to David Plyler these local Republican official in North Carolina and he spoke out this week urging president trump to wear a mask during his rally in that state the state by the way I wanna make it clear has a mask mandate. So we asked him why why does he feel the president should wear a mask and here's what he said. The president is a citizen of the United, States Nettie wants North Carolina. is asked to voluntarily do that not is a matter of health alone. But in the leaders situation, it allows the leader to be seen by people he or she represents and they generally hopefully would follow suit as an elected official. I've been asked to look out for the safety and health of our community, and that's exactly what I was doing. So. Yeah. Know that's just the reality right? That's how it should be but this has become political and plyler happens to be Republican. So he got some feedback on his comment about the president. Here's what he told us about. Well I got backlash from everybody they didn't call it say I'm a Republican or Democrat. I hadn't felt on for south. Carolina. Who taught me a cuss words? A sailor has never heard before. We also ask piler why he felt the need to speak out right? Why? Why did he do it? He could have just been quiet and just rolled his eyes and been angry about it but he didn't he spoke out and he said that mash to be worn, the president should wear one. Why do you do that? It's something we have to do. No chores. And this is not the first time that plague of this time has hit this country nor will it be the last I'm sorry to say in we've had plagued across the United States. We've had things in Europe. We've had him an England China just goes around the world I just hope we can get out of this. So. reasonable. So calm collected. I want to go now to Dr Jonathan Reiner Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at George Washington University Hospital who else would advise the white? House. Medical team under President George. W.. Bush. So you heard Dave plyler right I mean it just just just so reasonable. So clear. And and he wants the president's followers to to wear masks wants the president to wear masks you heard them. They they they scorn it. They disdain it. It comes from the top. Do you think it's possible to pandemic would be a lot less worse if the president had from day one said where mask. I think if the president had said from day one everyone is wearing a mask. We'd have got forty five thousand deaths in this country and I say that because that's extrapolating German experience they've had a middle of the road haven't been the best. They haven't been the worst they been okay in their pandemic response. And they've had about ten thousand deaths. We have four times the population of Germany. We'd have about forty, five, thousand deaths in this country. So about one hundred, fifty, thousand people would be alive if you WANNA think about why we still have forty thousand cases day and a thousand deaths today in this country is because. We're still talking about masks. It's so basic. It just seems so nefarious now that we've heard the president. Really articulately express how dangerous this virus was on February seven. He knew the route he knew he knew how lethal the virus was. He knew that this was ACM dramatic people. He understood yet he decided not to protect the people. It was a conscious decision not to protect the people even now even today. Do you think his supporters would go and be unmasked. If they knew what he knew you think Herman Cain would have gone to Tulsa. Sit there shoulder shoulder without a mask knowing what the president knew. So so you know you Dr. Fouled. She the president said that we were rounding the corner the latest in his many salvoes sang right it's going away. But that's what you just said. Doctor felt she came out today and we're not rounding the corner, right? I mean he didn't. He didn't talk around it or generally obliquely rebutted he rebutted it using word for word because he felt it was important and then he went on to say this. When you're in the middle of a pin damage and you're trying hard to address all the appropriate issues, it is truly a waste of time. The bunk nonsense but unfortunately, we had to do that. Frustration is coming through in a way I haven't seen it before. I admire the man. So much I'm he is a brilliant scientist who's devoted his life to protecting America from all kinds of horrible pathogens. And he still added and he he he he does not get discouraged. Look. It is a waste of time for him to have to deal with some this nonsense, but it's necessary. He has to debunk we rely on him. If only the the White House brought him out to these press events and had an let the press on Moss as can questions wouldn't that be refreshing? I'm grateful for him everyday
Oscars Best Picture Contenders Required to Meet Diversity Standards
"Since we're gonna talk about since we're going to talk about movies, this movie debuted 40 years ago. I don't not sure never won any Oscars. We can talk about a different kind of odds. And that is the odds that will be in your favor when you exhibit Perhaps the greatest comedy motion picture of all time. This is going to make it look like Raiders of the Lost Ark. This is gonna be the kind of thing that your Children because they did. I could look up to you now. I never could before. I mean, we made a lot of cheap movies for you guys that made a lot of money. But now we have spent a little more than we're supposed to. Columbia Pictures has spared no expense to make this fine science fiction comedy So they're talking about is that's Dan Ackroyd and Bill Murray talking about ghost workers that they put that out to theaters to convince them to show the movie it was. It was something they set out to particularly independent theaters saying, Hey, this is Ah, a little something you might want to consider it your little Arthouse cinema. Now you had one guy was one of the Ghostbusters was a black guy. So there okay. Winston was black. And and then one day I was Jewish. I believe Well, Rick Moranis was in the movies, but I don't think I guess later on. He was kind of an ancillary ghostbuster, the Reynolds Jewish Council's a minority. For some reason. Reason this is important is and I'm reading for The Times. New Oscar standards require best picture contenders must be inclusive to compete if you wanna win. The Oscar for best picture, and I Do You have tohave you meet need to meet certain quotas to do it, Which is the way all great art is made. Certainly we all know Novels, songs movies television shows on the best artist made with quotas. So they came up with this a couple of months ago. This is AH attempt to be more divers to be eligible for best picture of film must meet at least two standards on across four categories of diversity on screen representation. Themes and narratives. So the theme of the movie has to be inclusive of a variety of groups. And it's under representative groups, including women, People of color LGBTQ, plus people and those with cognitive or physical disabilities. You have to touch on at least some of those not only in the cast and they're talking about the main cast. Um I'll read from what it says in The New York Times those standards record, one of the least one of the lead actors were significant supporting actors is from unrepresented, underrepresented racial or ethnic group. One of the lead actors are significant supporting actor. So in that group of people that the movie is all about, you can't have if it's World War, one movie a bunch of white guys, No. No. You gotta have. I don't know, eh? A black guy funded through the trench er. At least Marriott cheap and at least 30 books. They've sent a mariachi band with clearly Mexican people to entertain the troops. Shut them up, or we're going to be bombed by the Germans. Then the mariachis district and you never see them again. Ugo. There's your Oscar bait. Joe Getty Hollywood Quota consultant from No problem I got this. You gotta touch in coming of age story sitting in Norwegian filming Fishing Village, a 16 year old boy and girl and love trying to confront their Nazi past. Let's see. Let's have the Globetrotters come to town and play an exhibition game And on one of the dates they go See the Globetrotters check. $100,000 at least 30% of all actors in secondary in minor roles air from certain underrepresented groups and the main Jenny called the Globetrotters again, and the main storyline, theme or narrative of the movie has to be centred on an under representative group to qualify for a best picture Oscar nomination, And they went through the list of a bunch of movies that might not have made it that have one. You know lots of Oscars, including 1917, the World War. In film or the Irishman that came out last year and was a piece of crap, But in very was a great movie. It was bad, but it was long. I just I just Go and find this. Absolutely amazing. Yeah, on this is from liberals. People who think art is important people who send their kids to expensive colleges to get our degrees. They want to have constraints on art. The Liberals do? Yeah. Yeah, quotas. Good luck with that. My loathing of Hollywood. Well, it could get a little more intense as it turns out, but just If if if it didn't Indicate what James Lindsay has been talking about that this is coming on hard in society as a whole. I could just roll my eyes and move on said Good, Eat yourselves. You're cannibalizing yourselves, And I think it's hilarious. But it does mean that that sort of racialist thinking where everything is broken down to your identity group. You could only get a job if you're this or you can only be fired. If you're not that, or You know, you can only move into a neighborhood. We have quotas and neighborhoods quotas that everything that's dangerous. Is there any chance that any of the older liberals because always talking about the liberals over 50 seem to have a different view of these things? Like a Rob Reiner makes a movie with like what you're talking about here, man. Just those Like, really stick his thumb in the eye of the O R. You got something, you know, three hour long Goodfellow State movie, and then then you turns out Henry Hill's wife, at the end of it says Not only am I leaving you but I'm a lesbian check. We're down here getting a Hollywood quota consultant further preceding three hours. She's been a lesbian. You just didn't know that was your biases. There you go

Trump says Pence was never on standby, denies "mini-strokes” amid speculation over his health
"Tonight the White House is responding to questions about President. Trump's health and his mysterious visit to Walter Reed Medical Center the President's physician issued a statement today and it said he could could not. Confirm rather that the president has not experienced nor been evaluated for stroke many stroke or any acute cardiovascular emergencies as have been incorrectly reported in the media. Now, to be clear, no major or reputable news outlet has actually claimed trump suffered quote mini strokes, but it does come as a new book claims Vice President Pence was put on alert to take over the duties of president. Trump had to be put under anesthesia during that November twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred trip to Walter reet out front. Now Dr Jonathan Reiner, he is the director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at George Washington University and he advised the White House medical team under President George W Bush great to see you doctor Reiner that statement obviously laid out what didn't occur but not what did happen that day? Do you believe they're using a straw man argument here? Do not address would actually might have happened. Of course something obviously happened. On November sixteenth in the afternoon on Saturday, the president was hurried in urgent fashion in an unplanned fashion to Walter Reed. Now, the White House has prodigious medical capabilities. So if the president was taken to Walter Reed. He was taken there because there was something going on that they could either treat or evaluate at the White House and the white. House does not want us to know what that is. If they did the a presents physician today would have simply said, he didn't have any neurologic cardiac problem he simply had ex but then won't. Excited matter you know So the vice president pence I, want to actually go back to that question about whether the president's health should be a private matter. But before we get to that vice president pence was asked just moments ago about being on alert that day and here's what he said. Nothing out of the ordinary about that moment or or that day, and I just refer any other questions to the White House physician as far as being on standby. I don't I don't recall being told to be on standby. He would think well, if you were told to be on the president knew you would remember that but do you believe him? I think in the Watergate that call that a non denial denial right so yeah, you would think that if on a Saturday afternoon, you're called instead and you get to be on standby if you suddenly need to become president this afternoon. Yeah you might remember that. So yeah a vice presidents being disingenuous yet when we do need to know what happened that. So we'll talk about that. Why is it important for the public to know about the president's health and is it? Is it something that that the president of the White House could say look this is this is a private matter and and we don't want to discuss the president's health any further. Yes. So if the president was a private citizen that would make perfect sense, but the president is not, and in this election season, we need to know the health of the candidates for President I've actually. Written about this, we know nothing actually about the health of the present the United States if you remember his clearance to run for office was famously pen by Dr Bornstein in New York who then later admitted that the president had drafted the letter for him. That's the letter that famously said that if elected, he would be the healthiest man ever to hold office. We know virtually nothing about the health prison the United States. Yet, he holds a the nuclear launch codes in his pocket. Look we. Health clearances for airline pilots and school bus drivers and secret service agents. We should probably know the health of the president of the United States. And it's interesting as doctors have often used as you point out hyperbole. I remember one saying he could live up to until two hundred until he was two hundred really quick. Is there any scenario where it would make sense for the vice president to be on standby for routine physical for the president? Not for routine physical if the president was going to receive unconscious sedation if he was needed to be put out let's say he was having a colonoscopy or having a a cardioversion for an abnormal heart rhythm or needed to undergo surgery with general anesthesia yet. It would need to be out in the twenty Fifth Amendment would need to be invoked. But not for just a routine matter.

So if the president was a private citizen that would make perfect sense, but the president is not, and in this election season, we need to know the health of the candidates for President I've actually. Written about this, we know nothing actually about the health of the present the United States if you remember his clearance to run for office was famously pen by Dr Bornstein in New York who then later admitted that the president had drafted the letter for him. That's the letter that famously said that if elected, he would be the healthiest man ever to hold office. We know virtually nothing about the health prison the United States. Yet, he holds a the nuclear launch codes in his pocket. Look we. Health clearances for airline pilots and school bus drivers and secret service agents. We should probably know the health of the president of the United States. And it's interesting as doctors have often used as you point out hyperbole. I remember one saying he could live up to until two hundred until he was two hundred really quick. Is there any scenario where it would make sense for the vice president to be on standby for routine physical for the president? Not for routine physical if the president was going to receive unconscious sedation if he was needed to be put out let's say he was having a colonoscopy or having a a cardioversion for an abnormal heart rhythm or needed to undergo surgery with general anesthesia yet. It would need to be out in the twenty Fifth Amendment would need to be invoked.
Study Finds Gap Widening Between Rich Pets And Poor Americans

Habits of Highly Effective Real People by Chris Guillebeau
"Habits of highly effective real people by Chris Gil Abo-. Of Chris GIL ABODE DOT COM. Quote. Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix. But ultimately, all you can do is fix yourself and that's a lot because if he can fix herself, it has a ripple effect. Rob Reiner. Humans are not machines and we don't all want the same things but we do want to do something purposeful to use the time we have to the best of our ability and we also long to discover our authentic selves. If our lives consists of series of choices, how do you highly effective real people make them he is a short list of characteristics for your consideration. First and foremost they know what's important to them. I've been saying for a while the greatest productivity hack is to love what you do. It is much much easier to be both productive and satisfied. When you spend most of your time on something, you find meaningful often go back to this principle as a compass point it really does no good at all to become efficient at the wrong things on balance is actually negative because the fish and you become the more likely it is that you'll continue on the wrong path. Therefore, it's better to fail quickly at the wrong things seeking discover the right once. They decide for themselves before other people decide for them. Highly, effective real people tend to be questioners. The don't accept what they are told at face value even examine their own beliefs if inconsistencies and opportunities for improvement whenever someone asks, you can have a or B, which do you want Davin respond by saying I'd like see please visit hard at first because easier as you gain experience if to understand that throughout your. Life, there will always be people who want to decide on your behalf. They have their own because they to our human. They care about themselves more than the care about you to be effective to do what matters to you and to pursue the right more on that. In a moment, you need to resist external expectations that don't apply to you. Only, when you have your own house in order, can you operate effectively with others because otherwise will be open to manipulation and misdirection? They take time to enjoy life in whatever way makes sense to them. Even, though they are highly effective, these real people aren't afraid to spend time on hobbies or different interests. As the saying goes time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time and that's the key point time they enjoy wasting maybe of a weird hobby or maybe your idea of fun is different from other people's who cares do whatever you need to recharge and regroup. In. Conversations they listen. They don't just think about what they're going to say next listening is an underrated skill yet, it's easy to develop just start doing it. Empathy takes practice sometimes it's helpful to repeat back with someone says not robotically but in more of a I wanNA make sure I understand this way over time you can also learn to listen not only to what is said but what is unsaid and sometimes more important. They learn what time is best to wake up and go to sleep. Is Not. The same for everyone was my number one takeaway from reading Dan Pink's when zone lot more in the book of course. But that concept stuck with me more than anything else once they know their ideal rhythms, they try to stick to them making exceptions only occasionally sure is fun to change things up now and then but if you operate most effectively according to a certain routine, you'll be most effective when you stick with it. Highly, effective real people embrace goals. Goals vary and some might not even call them goals but the consistently worked toward something. They know that the process is more important than actually achieving the goals. But to have the process, you have to have an end point to look towards goals are the tangible expressions of values while we decide are important to us, and therefore the choices we make each day how the effect of real people know the actions they take on one day will affect the opportunities available to them in the future. Should they live long enough to see it? Lastly, they find a balance between service and self care. Highly effective real people that life isn't all about them. They WANNA serve others however they can. They want to make a difference as consider their goals, values and decisions. This value is always present. Yet Mitt is an exclusive chop rate most effectively in life and to get what you really want. You'll need to think about yourself not every goal is to be perfectly aligned with what it produces for other people. Personal growth comes through challenge. It all these the overall philosophy of nonconformity. You can do good things for others and yourself at the same time it's not a dichotomy or an either or. I don't think I'm always highly effective person though I tried to always be a real one when if you'll off track I, go back to some of these points especially those about being intentional making my own choices also try to remember the universal truths changes constant. Is. Temporary. So once again, how the effect of real people seek to use whatever time they have to the best of their ability?

Remembering Carl Reiner, A Legendary Writer, Producer And Performer
"This is fresh air when Carl Reiner sitcom pilot starring him, his TV writer Rob Petrie was rejected by CBS producer Sheldon Leonard rescued it by persuading Reiner to replace the entire cast, including Reiner himself. The result. The Dick Van Dyke show was a major TV hit and made a star of its then unknown leading lady Mary Tyler Moore. Terry Gross spoke with her about the show and her TV character in 1995. What were you told about the character of Laura? Just that she was going to be a wife, a television wife, and that really had its classical parameters and dimensions that they were established. And they hardly ever varied except A Sze to whether or not the wife was the star of the show. In which case she was the funny one. Or if she were the straight man for the male star, and she was then totally supportive, but all these wives We're kind of obedient and you know, a representative of the vows to love, honor and obey. They hardly varied from that, and With with Carl Reiners character the way she was written, Laura actually had opinions of her own. While she was asserting herself. She also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy. It was ah, a matter of two people. I mean, society's expectations of that point still said, Hey, wait a minute, lady. You only go so far here, but I think we broke new ground. And and that was helped by my insistence on wearing Pants. You know, jeans and and capri pants at the time because I said, I've I've seen all the other actresses, and they're always running the vacuum in these little flowered frocks with high heels on And I don't do that. And I don't know any of my friends to do that. So why don't we try to make this real and I'll dress on the show the way I do in real life, But it wasn't that easy. The sponsors were afraid you brazen right? They pointed specifically to if they used the term cupping under And I can only assume that that meant my you know my my seat that there was a little too much definition. And so they allowed me to continue to wear them in one episode. One scene per episode. And only after we check to make sure that there was a little cupping under as possible could coming under referring to the fit of your pants, the fit of the pants on my behind, right? But within a few weeks we were we were sneaking them into a few other scenes in every episode, and they were definitely cutting under and everyone thought it was great. The funny thing is, you know. Women liked me. They were not envious of the fact that their husbands had a crush on me. It was okay with them. They they were the first to know when I would meet people. They'd say My husband loves you so much. And he thinks you're so sexy. And this was it was not thing because they were also able to identify with me as a friend as a girlfriend. There was no resentment, no fear. Yeah, well, I think that that speaks so well for the character and your your portrayal of her. Did you do a lot of rehearsing with Dick Van Dyke? Or did you just have to do it? Minutes before the actual broken? The whole show was done in what they call multiple camera technique could still done today. But back then we were maybe the sixth or seventh show to use the technique. It began with Joan Davis, not Lucille Ball as everyone thinks John Davis did a show called I married Joan. What a girl! What a world What a life! Hey for you, and then Lucy and several other shows followed. But in that show it's a little like doing theater that's captured on film. You rehearsed for five days and then Ah, On the evening of the fifth day, the audience comes in and the camera's having blocked their moves in yours lined up with them. You film it from top to bottom in continuity. So during those five days, it was at least the 1st 3 days. It was very much a matter of rehearse. And contribute and attempt things and not be afraid to fail to make a fool of yourself. Just pick yourself up. And if it didn't happen this time, then the next time the experiment maybe it will Was a wonderfully supportive creative environment. Mary Tyler Moore, speaking to Terry Gross in 1995.

"Musical from the very start has been phenomenal. It's playwright composer. Lin Manuel Miranda. I unveiled a snippet of Hamilton in two, thousand, nine, surprising and delighting the OBAMAS, when performing it during a night of poetry and music at the White House. The full length musical premiered six years later at Joseph. PAPP's public theater then moved uptown to Broadway later that same year in two thousand fifteen. Miranda and Hamilton smashed box office records and won a Pulitzer. Some Grammy's an eleven Tony Awards including best musical. And in June twenty sixteen shortly before Miranda and some of his fellow original co, stars left the show Hamilton was filmed three times for a movie version. Twice in front of an audience, and once with steady cam and crane operators, swooping around and above the stage. That film version was intended to be locked away for five years until its plan national movie release in the fall of twenty twenty one. But because of the pandemic, and because both movie and Broadway theaters are currently shutdown Disney's streaming service Disney, plus is releasing the movie version of Hamilton today as a special treat for Independence Day weekend, the production is so good and so eagerly anticipated. I predict a major TV blockbuster. Hamilton the stage musical is such a massive hit. It could afford to do everything right in mounting a movie version and has. Captured the actors at the very height of their performance and comfort levels with most members of the company, having played their roles on stage for more than a year. Film director Thomas Kale. who also directed the Broadway version preserve the theatricality of the stage presentation yet new win zoom in for some emotional and revealing close ups. Best of all he knew window include reactions from the audience who could be heard, but not seen responding to some of the musicals best bits. These include the time in the film when Miranda as Alexander Hamilton and Davos digs as the marquee, the Viet serve up one of the plays most famous lines. Your. Monsieur. in-command! No sweat..

His body is the shell for her. How did you work with him? On getting the gestures and movements on that, it was such a good form. It's funny. Steve Martin another one of those graceful ungraceful man he does. He has very big hands and big feet, and there's no way he doesn't have the the ballet hands, and that's the only thing he missed.

In one day and showed me a scene when when the first time Lily Tomlin, soul gets into his body where he was trying to walk like a man and the woman's sensibilities, and and soul will take over this schizoid personality.

He was one of those kids who absorb everything. You saw on television movies, but he never stated at. Loudly that he was GonNa do, but in his heart, he wanted to be a director always in that amazing, and he only told us about it later when he was about nineteen years old, I saw him direct a rookie drivers, and he were friends when they were in high school, and he directed a version of no exit by SORTA. And it was brilliant. He was only about eighteen or nineteen at the time at that point, his road was starting to be paved. He wanted to be a director's no question that he knew that he wasn't telling it to everybody. Because you know when you're young and say I, WanNa be a director I. Get out of here and he had it in his about mine. I'm sure all the time. It was on all in the family. He was planning it. D- show each. Each Other your work Oh.

That was Carl Reiner Creator of the Dick. Van Dyke show speaking to Terry. Gross in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine. He died Monday at age ninety, eight. After a break we'll continue our tribute to Carl Reiner with an interview from our archives, with one of the stars of that show Mary Tyler Moore, and with an excerpt of my interview with Mel Brooks.

When Carl Reiner Sitcom pilot starring him as t rob Petrie was rejected by CBS producer Sheldon Leonard Rescued it by persuading Reiner to replace the entire cast including Reiner himself. The result the Dick Van Dyke show was a major TV hit and made a star of its then unknown leading lady Mary Tyler Moore Terry Gross spoke with her about the show and her TV character in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety five. What were you told about the character of Laura? Just that she was going to be a wife television, wife, that really had its classical. Parameters and dimensions they were established, and they hardly ever varied except. as to whether or not the wife was the star of the show, in which case she was the funny one, or if she were the straight man for the male star, and she was then totally supportive, but all these wives were kind of obedient, and you know a representative of the vows to love honour and obey the hardly varied from that and With with Carl Reiner's character, the way she was written Laura actually had opinions of our own while she was asserting herself, she also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy. It was a matter of two people I mean societies expectations at that point.

"Among his Greatest Hits Co Starring Opposite Sid Caesar on television. Your show of shows on when she also was part of the writing staff.

Writing and directing plays and movies including. Alan Arkin in enter laughing and Steve Martin in the jerk. And playing the veteran conman in the series of Ocean's eleven movies. Today on fresh air. We remember Carl Reiner listening back to interviews with him as well as with his best friend Mel Brooks and Dick Van. Dyke show star Mary Tyler Moore. But I as a TV, critic and historian I'd like to offer my own appreciation. Carl Reiner is such a major part of TV history that he's a central figure in early television's best and smartest shows in two different genres, the variety series and the situation comedy. In variety, his NBC sketch series your show of shows, which starred Sid Caesar ran from Nineteen fifty to nineteen, fifty four and set the template that Saturday night live is still following. It was broadcast live for ninety minutes every Saturday night and featured guest hosts and performers and a repertory company of regular comedy sketch players. One, of Reiner's many roles in that company was as the reliable straight man feeding lines, so Caesar could react as in this sketch in which reiner interviews, a famous magician played by Cesar and unexpectedly dazzles him by performing the most basic of magic tricks, making his extended finger disappear beneath a handkerchief professor. There is one thing that interest most magicians is. How a magician starts the first. First, trick that gets them interested in magic I picked. I remember my first trick, it was so simple and yet he was trick that caused me to get interested. It was as simple as this I remember the child doing I put my finger under anger. I say hocus pocus finger disappear. The finger would disappear now. That was my very first drink and it got me into. What was yours? Has the finger. After your show of shows Reiner and another veteran of that same writing room, Mel Brooks performed and recorded a series of ad. libbed comedy bits that became hit record albums. Reiner was the straight man throwing unscripted questions at Brooks who claim to be the two thousand year old man? Reiner and Brooks also did the circuit of TV variety shows, but Reiner's next move back into series TV was to write a Sitcom about a situation. He knew quite well. Being a dad in new Rochelle. Who commuted in New York City, to write for a network TV variety show. He wrote scripts for thirteen episodes, and even filmed a pilot called head of the family, but CBS didn't buy it. Not with him playing the lead. Rob Petrie and Barbara Britton as his wife Laura. Your son dislikes you. Say. How can you dislike me his father? The No, the hate their fathers. It's only six years old. He doesn't want me long enough to hate me. But rather than let the project die TV producer Sheldon Leonard Persuaded Reiner that. The scripts were fine, but the cast needed a complete overhaul including reiner. The new version named after its new star was called the Dick. Van Dyke, show. He played TV, writer, Rob Petrie. Mary Tyler Moore played, his wife. Laura and in time Reiner got to play a recurring role as Alan Brady. The Sid Caesar like star of the variety show within the show. In one of the SITCOMS, most famous episodes Laura reveals on a TV game show that Allen Brady is secretly bald, which leads to her, visiting his office to Beg for forgiveness and her husband's Job I. Remember Telling Rob and I told him ten you'd. told him to tell you how very. Natural? That way for like a father figure right Oh no, Allan, just the opposite all mother figure. Link. Chore. Real person washed snowing here, we can see. The Dick Van. Dyke show which ran from nineteen, sixty, one to nineteen, sixty six was a top ten show for most of its tenure, it one fourteen emmys, and remains one of the best and funniest sitcoms ever made, but it was more than that because reiner was a comedy pioneer in more ways than one. The, Dick Van Dyke show was one of the first sitcoms to split its time equally between work and home. The show dealt on occasion with racial and sexual issues at a time when almost no show on TV did. And the show's finale episode long before most TV series provided, finales was so subtle that many viewers missed the joke. Namely that Reiner was bringing it full circle by having. Dick Van Dyke Rob Petrie write a story about his life. With a final twist, which rob describes to his wife and friends including Reiner's Alan Brady after returning from the publisher. Good News. Today! Yeah, he hates it. Looks scanning non. That's what they say. That's right. Because Ellen read it and he loved it. From style. Produce as a television series you. You're going to be a television seasons Joe of course I won't do until after my series is the funk which may never be. The Allen is going to play me. Let's so brilliant. And it's very much like what Larry David and Jerry. seinfeld would do thirty years later on Seinfeld presenting episodes in which their TV counterparts would pitch the concept of the very TV show on which they were starring. Carl Reiner once told me that over the years more than fifty TV writer had come up to him and said that the Dick Van Dyke show was their inspiration to pursue their career that before watching his show, they didn't know there was such. A job is a TV writer much less that it looked like so much fun. And finally with his death, Carl Reiner retires undefeated with a record. No one else in show business will ever be able to claim. He's the only performer to of appeared as a guest on every incarnation of NBC's tonight show from Steve, Allen to Jimmy, Fallon. Carl Reiner spoke with Terry Gross to in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine. She asked him if it was hard to break into show business, and if his parents thought he was foolish to try all know, my parents were very proud of the fact that I wouldn't be a bomb and I wanted to be an actress see. They thought they revered act because when I was a kid.

Our hearts are there so yeah, they're. They'll be there, too, and after Dick Van Dyke. Then you started You know you did a lot of things. Of course we started directing. Another classic movie and guys please a Netflix. It's wherever you can find these moves if you haven't seen them. The Russians are coming. The Russians are coming still like the Dick, Van Dyke show one of the funniest movies you can watch and one of the funniest cast to yes. Oh, my God, we had you mentioned Don rickles. Every wonderful comedian Oh. That Guy who? you know who used to whittle Eliza Jonathan Jonathan was his. Yes, he was hilarious. He wants started with a piece of wood. On the set when offset when we were waiting for. A square piece of wood, and by the time we're in that. He had a perfect wooden egg. At the negative. What kind of drew you to directing at that time? To meet, directing had written something that was a written a movie I. Guess that was the directed by somebody, and when he cut it and put it together, it was so I said No. No. I says you don't use a close up of somebody. When a joke is say to see the reaction, I said reaction should between the two of them were one looking see it was so badly. I decided I'd better direct to to save my material. So the second movie I wrote I directed the because I wanted to be there, and and by the way the best thing you can do about directing his hire actors who don't need directing us what I that's what. Hitchcock He Hitchcock I think rarely gave direction actors. Oh. He was so. I loved him. and. Say another.

You think your bar with it. Two things environmental and. Of Born with it right? Yeah, and there's no question about it, but I think the environment is to by my parents loved comedies. The Ritz brothers the Marx brothers. We always went to see comedies and radio never missed Jack Benny Fred. Allen Show, and so there there it is, but also having a funny bone helps through this. Listen to comedy and would rather be doing something else. Yeah. I remember I don't know if you remember this conversation, but I think at that lunch. It was very funny where you thought that. I shouldn't say you thought that. You're saying that you didn't think conservatives were funny, but that liberals were funny. You said you. Didn't you said I just I. Don't see many funny conservatives out there. What they do is Oh, give us fodder they do. Mr Trump is fodder for you know for Comedians. COMEDIANS making a living off of.

"Thanks for talking to me. Okay Hi, it's me I'm back and I. Just wish what this was an amazing couple of interviews for me. It was it was. Beautiful. Beautiful to sit with Carl and and listen to him and watch them interact on the phone with people in the room with me. But nothing is going to top. What happened after I shut the MIC off? And I will tell you this now. We turn off the mics I'm sitting there and almost immediately George Shapiro, who will as I? Said was napping in the chair across from Carl on and off was the first to get up and go. What a great interview! That was a great interview. Wasn't that great? And then Carl starts fiddling with remote controls. He's like I gotTA show you that PBS sing. With the Jews in the musical I gotTa show you that. I want I mentioned it. I I want to show it to you. And I'm like okay, and I'm putting my stuff away and then and then Georgia bureau goes their ice cream. Is there any ice cream? And then he wanders into the kitchen? The publicist guy who's air. He wanders in the kitchen and I'm watching Carl. He's got the TV on. He's looking forward so I go. Maybe it's on the other. Tibo, maybe this, Kiva. He's not bumbling, but yeah, there's a lot to be done here and clearly he watches a lot of television as a lot of things recorded. So then George Shapiro comes back into the room and starts handing out some kind of low calorie, ice cream sandwich, and now we're all eating ice cream and Carl starts. The. The. At the beginning so in my mind Mike Okay I. Guess I'm hanging out I guess I'm here for the hour I I don't know what happens now. Are we going to get to the list that he wanted to show me? Look? It's not I. Don't have a lot to do in. This is an amazing thing, so I'm packing up watching something on Gershwin. We're eating ice cream sandwiches. Everything's great. And then the phone rings. And Carl picks it up and I'm packing my bag up. And I hear them go. No, it It went very well. It was very good yes, yes. And then he taps me on the shoulder with the phone and he go. He hands me the phone he goes. It's Mel Brooks. I'm like Oh okay so I pick up the phone and bring it to my ear and I go hello, and all I hear is eighty percent right? Right. And I said maybe eighty five and Mel Brooks goes alright. Maybe eighty five. Put Carl back on the phone. It was just too much for me to even. Put it together that. Yeah, that for three weeks. You this is it was this was the beat? This was the call back. This was the moment that is comic. Genius killed me. I kept it in because I didn't know you know. Look there comedians. I just. I just handled it like anyone would like Oh. My God I just waited for the longest punchline available by Mel. Brooks weeks weeks. So then Carl gets back on the phone and I. Think from what I glean. The conversation was Carl was insisting that he was going to roast his own chicken. And then like everything starts to break up by pack up and I. Get the the PBS thing. He didn't seem to be hung up on showing me the list at the end and I say goodbye. To Carl and I thank him and And I'm walking out to Shapiro. We finish our ice cream. Sandwiches I'm walking out with George Who Piero and You know we get outside. And he goes I was great. That was a great job because what it melts say. And I said he said Carl's about eighty percent. And, George, Bureau Goes Day tells the truth. He walks away and I got in my car and I listened to the interview I. Just done with the one of the great comedy. Minds of of ever of ever.

"Those who listen to my show, no that I had Mel Brooks on and it was an amazing conversation and I I want to I, sort of talked about. A story that is unfolding that involves me Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, that was one of the most spectacular moments of my life and show business, and this is the the second part of this story we'll. We'll conclude at the end of the Carl Reiner episode I'll give you some more detail, but let me set this up a little bit for you. So I interview Mel Brooks and we have a good time. You heard it. We take a liking to each other. I always liked him, but he had no idea who I wasn't. He ended up liking me and we had a nice time. He walked out to my car was all very. Charming and funny, and he says I, you know. I'm to set you up with Carlin. As you recall I said. How is Carl and Mel? Said about eighty percent. And I said well. That's good. That's good, you know. He's hanging on. Everybody's good, and you'll hear in the Carl Reiner episodes very different type of conversation. You Know Carlos. Carl Reiner Mel Brooks, but they're both. Have A lot of clarity. They got all their All their ducks are still in a row. Some of them are a little wobbly, but they're all in a row and they're tight man, they're. They're definitely present and coherent and just great, great agile comedic minds. These guys are the best. There ever was really the two of them. Now let's set the stage a little bit. So after he tells me he's going to hook me up a Carl. We set it up few weeks. Go by, and then I gotTa Drive Oh to Carl's house. Now I have to really. A ACCENTUATE! Feels to me not just because I grew up with Mel Brooks movies or Carl Reiner. And Rob Reiner and the two thousand year old man. But there there's Jewishness to this whole adventure that that is very familiar with t. t to me, you know. I drove to Carl's house in Beverly Hills. I got out of the car, and it was was a home in. You know in the old old part of Beverly Hills so it's a home next to other homes, but it's a big home. The door was open. There was commotion going on. There was people coming in and out there was a woman there who was doing something. There was a guy who I think is a publicist for his new book. Carl Reiner I remember me, which is his new book out now. And and George Shapiro was air now. George Shapiro as you know, or may not knows a very big comedy manager. He manages Karl He manages Jerry Seinfeld. He's got a few writing. Clients used manage ordering atoms, but but he's Carl's nephew and he's in his seventies. I, I'm speculating there, but I would say he's in his seventies so now the familiarity with me is you know you drive up to a house? The doors open their things going on. There's a living house. It looks like it's been lived in I, Picture Rob Reiner growing up there. I picture the family there. I picture, you know in Jewish households and I'm not saying it's specific the Jewish households but I. Just I felt immediately. Immediately at home you sit in the living room and it looks like people sit in this living room. You know foods been served in here and just look old Jews familiar to me. That's all but Carla's not I don't know if I can say this. How can I say this? He's not as as virtually Jewish or do we as Mel Brooks, it's a different frequency It's a different tone, but I walk in. And Georgia, Shapiro's air and You know he's talking to me about this and that and then we're waiting for Carl the publicist is there and then. We're getting set up and then Carl's GonNa come down.
