Deadly decisions

"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.

Fresh update on "richmond" discussed on John Reid

"Is that me looting you. You're supposed to. To break into stores and steal because you've been an idiot and screwed up your life when push came to shove And the woman kept arguing with me about this, and she said that here in Richmond In the last two months. Things have gotten a lot better. I mean, I guess the fast forwarding through that whole story that's the crux of it. In the last two months. Things have gotten a lot better here in Richmond. Do you think that's true? I mean, you know what? I live in the county. I'm so thankful. That when it came time From me to buy my own property in Richmond to return full time, 100% to Richmond. That I bought in the county and not in the city because my Perspective on it is that things have gotten a lot worse. But am I wrong about that? Do you think things are better in Richmond? Do you think Maura people are drawn to Richmond and forget? Forget those of us in the county Wide or black in the county. Do you think That the life of the average citizen in Richmond, Virginia, somebody who's been there in the city for 20 years or 70 years. Do you think things are better for them now, after this summer of protest? And riots. And vandalism. Do you think things are better? I'm curious. I could. I can't point to one thing that I think is better. You know, Christopher Columbus is no longer at the end of the Boulevard, the Arthur Ashe Boulevard. Christopher Columbus got dumped into Bird Lake. Okay. Does anybody feel better about Richmond? Are there any kids that are now looking at that empty, defaced? Pedestal and going. Wow. I've got something to look up to here. Is there Is there any program that's making life better for them? Okay, So now if you are an angry black man or black woman in Richmond And you You know you're not making $100,000 a year and you have this realization through no fault of your own. You've worked very hard. Let's let's just say you're a hard working person. You went to school. You did the right things. You're not going to make the amount of money that somebody else's. And you're bitter about it, which listen, I'm mad that I'm not making a $1,000,000 a year. God, When I was 18 I thought I was going to be Ah, multi millionaire and be anchoring the NBC Nightly news, and it just hasn't worked out that way. For me. Some of it's my fault. Some of it's not I'm a little bitter about that. But do you do you think that because you drive down Monument Avenue and Stonewall Jackson's no longer there? Matthew Fontaine. Maury is no longer theirs. If you even do that, Wass Robert E. Lee is now graffitied with the F word and threats to kill cops is life better for you? You think? I don't. I can't. I don't see how that's possible. What am I missing here? Because the more I talked to people, at least in my world, and I don't think I'm completely isolated. It's not like I just hang out of the country Club of Virginia every day, you know, sipping cocktails and playing golf with A hoity toity here in Richmond. I don't see anything that's better. Nothing. Nothing. I see nothing. That's better is there Are there more taxes coming in? No. Are the schools reopened, and suddenly the students are paying close attention and they're learning about. You know Maggie Walker and They're learning about Martin Luther King, and they're learning about Doug Wilder. And they're inspired. I don't know. I mean, they clearly the schools aren't open. It doesn't sound to me like there's any desire when I When I proposed putting a monument up on Monument Avenue for Doug Wild, and No one was interested. No one wanted to take me up on. I got zero phone calls. From anybody. White, black rich poor. No one was interested in that. So to me, that would have been a positive step to try to Exposed. The city to a different group of leaders, people that I didn't even necessarily support. But no, there was no interest in that. But now that we've trashed the city I've got people actually telling me things are better. You know what? Go on. Go on Facebook. If you think something's better in Richmond today. Please tell me what you think it is, because I don't see one thing That is better. The Coliseum's closed down. You got nothing coming through even if the pandemic wasn't here, and we could pack 17,000 people into an arena. You couldn't do it because the Coliseum is closed. And You know, maybe it's not all the mayor's fault. But there's no plan right now to build a replacement for that building. So Richmond just continues to sink sink sink further and further behind. Am I just being nasty and negative? I don't think so. But you know if you want to bolster this lady's idea that somehow things are better in Richmond, Virginia. And I hate to be the one to throw cold water. In her face because I've always been a cheerleader for regiment. Wherever I've gone around the world. I bragged about my hometown in all the history here, so it's not like I'm one of these people who has totally been against Richmond from the beginning. But tell me what it isthe. What's better. I'll wait. I don't think you could give me anything to 9 17 will come back and I'll talk about my escape from Richmond, ironically, to go to the Democrat National Convention next week, that's AH. That's coming up in just a moment here on NewsRadio, W R V going all carrying all sensing all feeling all concern Weekdays, a new Radio.

A Song For Peace

"This is the story of a song that is in a way the story of this country in the spring of Nineteen, sixty-nine at a sidewalk cafe on Richmond Street tucked in from the corner of Dizengoff. Street in Tel Aviv a twenty four year old poet named Yakov or Janka wrote Blit met a twenty five year old musician and arranger named yet year Rosenbloom and the two men became friends the cafe was called California and the. Place, itself said something about the people who made a habit of spending their days especially, their long nights there. The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers. On Alterman and Lebron's Sean Ski. Lay. Goldberg. Alexander Penn great writers who had been young and who grew old drinking coffee in the afternoon and vodka in Iraq at night at the simple spare tables of cassette alongside these luminaries in the nineteen sixties. New Generation staked claims at the table, the actor or. The singer Oregon Stein the architect Yaakov wreck there and many others cafe California was not seat from its vantage half of long block away even the young people at seat where old carseat was yesterday's Bohemia California was today's Cafe California was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine by a man named Ab Netanyahu who was only thirty two. Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia. For India when he was twelve at sixteen and Nineteen, forty three, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Indo British Air Force in time after he trained to watch the Second World War wind down at twenty one he came to fight in Israel's war of independence and never left taking a job as an El Al pilot when he was decommissioned. It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat. Ab Thanh was a magnet for Bohemians and he came alive when he was with Bohemians, their company produced in him at once a sense of satisfaction. He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer. Men by playing that, he named piece one on February twenty, eighth nineteen, sixty six, he took off and flying low to avoid Israeli radars he landed in Port Saieed the Egyptians sent him back the next day Nassar had refused to see him back home a retired David Ben Gurion told reporters that not tons trip was an event of moral and political importance and quote pope. Pious gave him a medal of peace and Robert Kennedy and Bertrand Russell sought out his company not much later the notion took hold of Natanz, that music held the key to altering. Israeli. In the summer of Nineteen Sixty Nine AB NATANZ bought a Dutch cargo ship named MVP SEATO MVP stands for motor vessel and he rechristened it the MVP piece from Holland he sailed to New York to raise money and set up a shipboard radio station. His plan was to anchor in the Mediterranean outside territorial waters of Egypt and Israel and broadcast songs of peace that might open the minds of Israelis any. Alike his sojourn to New York stretched biblically three years would pass before he returned with ship in good repair with mixers, turntables, ABC cartridge machines, reel to reel tape machines, and fifty kilowatt transmitter to help not on- by what he needed John.

Rolls. Royce grads to sell at auction, but the practical impediments of shipping the grand car stymied the business, the carpenters, Johnny Mathis and other musicians recorded for non promotional clips in praise of peace.

Fresh update on "richmond" discussed on John Reid

"R V. L hope you're going to find some time to take something of a break here in August, which sounds weird. Because I think some people have kind of taken a break for the last few months least not working as intensely as perhaps they used to. But I mean, let's be honest. The The stress of not knowing what the future holds having everybody in your family, or at least some people in your family freaked out about the virus. The violence I mean, I think that's taken a toll on people. My problem is when I went to nags head a couple of weeks ago. It was when they were removed when Mayor Stony pulled his little illegal charade in collaboration with Ralph Northam and, you know, declared the state of emergency. After weeks of violence. Suddenly there's a state of emergency so that he could, you know, cast himself as a civil rights champion and take down the statues on Monument Avenue. So I have to be on a try not to let outside things influence my mental health. But it was not a very relaxing time down at the beach. Because every time I picked up phone, which I probably shouldn't have done, I got Maur. Ridiculous. Crazy news from Richmond about the insanity of the stupid leaders that we've got here, and I'm sorry to use that kind of terminology, but I mean, that's what we've got. We've got really Stupid people. The other conclusion I could reach is that they're shady, nefarious leaders. If you want me to call you of something worse, I could do that. But I think stupid is probably the most appropriate thing to say on the radio. I did get into a GN odd back and forth yesterday. I'm curious what you think about it. You know there was looting Massive looting in Chicago. Not land. Well, I guess some some last night, but the big looting was Sunday night into Monday, and it wasn't just not that looting is OK anywhere, but it wasn't just in The lousy parts of Chicago, and there are a lot of him. It wasn't just people who feel downtrodden. Who decided to go after the local dollar General store and steal diapers. It was on the Miracle Mile, which, of course, is the place that people when they come to Chicago is where a lot of the Museums and the High end stores are what would what would it be like? Um, I mean, a Richmond really didn't have that it used to before. Democrats destroyed Richmond in the in the seventies. But I don't know the Richmond has anything that compares to it, Unfortunately, but In major cities. There's always one street. Money. I guess it used to be Grey Street here in Richmond, where you had the jewelers and the For arrears and maybe art galleries on. I think that's kind of a newer trend. But anyway, there's always one street with the high end stores. That's where the looting happened in Chicago. So this kind of brought it home. You know, it's always easy. To sit in the safety of Ah, you're you're high end penthouse condo in a downtown area and cast judgment on people who live in a lousy part of town. Just like it's easy to kind of turn a blind eye to what's happening in the city of Richmond. If you live in the suburbs, Although you know at this stage, the people of Richmond are making their choice. About what kind of life they want to live. They moved there. You know, Some people have moved from the suburbs into the city of Richmond thought. Oh, my gosh, things have turned around in Richmond. I want to be a part of this and that Seemed like a pretty smart idea. And now they've got to make up their mind in the next couple of months. Whether they're continue, you're going to continue down this road of regular violence. From permitted by Mayor Stoney and his cronies or whether they're going to hit theaters jacked button and say, Get rid of these guys. We can't tolerate this anymore. That'll be a really important judgment about where we go. But I made a comment about the Chicago looting. And this lady from Richmond. I don't know her. She was very upset with me for I've been she kept using. How dare you? How dare you daring to judge the morality of whether the looting is okay in Chicago. Her comment was These people have had their lives looted by rich people. So now they're going to loot back. And I paused for a second. I thought, Well, this is a joke, right? I mean, How have they had their lives looted by rich people? Would they cut off welfare? In Chicago. Letting people starve in Chicago. There's no social services in Chicago. Last time I checked They're lots of programs that are very, very expensive in Chicago to try to take care of the downtrodden. You know, people who for whatever reason, they started smoking pot at age 10. And then they graduated to coke and heroin or whatever other drug they had. Then they dropped out of school. I didn't get AH G e. D. Didn't go to college didn't do anything right? They decided they'd be total rebels their whole lives. And now at age 25 they're shocked that they can't keep a job, right. I mean, am I supposed to have a lot of sympathy for that person? I, you know, might if your parents you you were unfortunate enough to be born into an unstable family in poverty, and you didn't have any role models at all. To try to keep you on. You know, even the most remotely straight path so that you could be a functional person in society. I mean, I feel bad for people who were in that situation, but what else am I supposed to do? Besides spend trillions of dollars every year in Major cities across the country to support you and give you atleast a fighting chance to make some good decisions and support yourself. He really?.

"You know somebody to go see my mom or something the telemedicine through her insurance provider her her. Healthcare provider. I don't know that was a disaster I mean these was like sign up here but you couldn't sign appears it was a joke. And she passed away at the end of March and in the end of April. Her doctor messaged me through their service that says, all we're doing telemedicine managed to drive over there to his office Lapham high the head. Right like hold on, I'm GonNa, meet you the parking lot I'm GonNa show you telling me now tell you and he you know he was a really nice guy but was terrible with her you know it's just that's my other issue is we got a train and you said your daughter is going to hopefully be attending medical school in the fall she's accepted. We just don't know what attending is going to look like. We need. A much bigger. This is a whole other episode, but I'll digress for a second we need a huge amount of training for dealing with people with cognitive issues, which I would think would also all autism Because, he would walk in he in the office. Well, I'm not sure if we have everything time to do a little and she would immediately get hostile. which never resulted in any teen kind of successful events. IT IS A. It is for sure specialty that needs to to continue to evolve right and as as. Our understanding of Alzheimer's and dementia and other cognitive diseases as our understanding evolves the medic, the medicine has. Evolved, in the the doctors themselves in the treatment rooms and all of the protocols need to really you know as we were saying. One of the things that that has become. Certainly known in really relied upon is the stability and having a set schedule and doing things very rigidly. Right. What we didn't always know that right doctors didn't always know that in and as they learned it facilities and caregiver started to really incorporate that into the day and I know in my grandmother's case. That made all the difference in the world for a period of time and then unfortunately towards the end. It just the end is the end there's really nothing you can do but for very decent period of time that scheduling instability. gave her a sense to your point Jennifer of calmness right she sort of knew what was coming. She may not have remembered lots but she knew what was coming in and we just need to continue to do research and I, and you certainly are aware of the amount, the millions and millions of dollars that they pour into Alzheimer's research where huge corporate sponsors in we in the. General based in Richmond Virginia in our Richmond Chapter of Alzheimer's. we are. Very. Big corporate citizens if you will. They're both from a company standpoint more importantly into. And were very involved in the Alzheimer's Association and we continue to hope that they will find a cure for this disease and continue to do all the great work that they're doing they are trying. So. How should we help people have these uncomfortable conversations with their hr because I think. I think this is kind of rooted in our. American culture. You don't I mean we we've kind of slowly evolved to accepting that. You know we've got MOMS in the workforce, and now we've got DADS that are much more hands on than they used to be back when I was a kid. We've evolved to accepting that we kind of support that. But I think people are still a little bit reluctant even to mention the needs that they have with their kids. And it's even worse because we know kids are going to become more independent and when you're taking care of somebody like your grandmother or my mom, we know unfortunately, the reverse is the case isn't that they're going to need more and more of your time. And we've got an employer that's looking at you for a promotion. But in the back of their head, they're like, but I know her mom's GonNa take up more and more of her time, which means you'll have less time for US Outta we kinda short circuit that. Culture because I feel like we needed one eighty on our culture like overnight, which is not doable and it would not really be fun. It's necessary but. It would be pleasurable to live through. So here's what here's what I would say the from. The world we live in today having nothing to do forget. Forget the covert for just one second forget Kobe one, thousand nine if we could. If we could just sort of close, our is what I would say you is that the employer world, the employment world that we live in today through regulation through evolution of the employer space and just through what I would describe as a shift. By most employers towards a more empathetic view of wellness. Right, some of the catch phrases that we hear now are are wellness programs, many companies. If not every company I've come across all have e- AP's right employee assistance programs. These programs are designed to help employees with these caregiving responsibilities with some of the sort of difficulties of life that normally companies twenty years ago and thirty years ago didn't really respond or care about. So. The first thing employees have to understand is the world we're in today their employers really do want to help so. Not to say every company, you could have a jerk boss, right? That's possible. You could work for a company that is one of the few that hasn't evolved. But most of the companies in certainly most of the larger ones have evolved as a matter of fact. There was a study that I was reading about a week or two ago. That looked at HR professionals, right. So this was a survey of human resource professionals and they said to them.

"Rubia Kamara is the chef and co owner of an cream shop called Ruby scoops, which is planning on opening up in a new location in Richmond Virginia here, the United States later this year. Rabiu is our guest for this episode and she says, she decided to make a career in ice cream when she started to think about being an adult who needed to have a job and how to have a job that feels like fun at least most of the time I realized that I was GonNa say signed working and I wanted to do some that enjoyed doing. So I went to culinary school and we learned how to make ice cream like in a machine, their small machine but I really enjoyed the process and the different things you could add to it and fell in love with it and just decided. That if I was GonNa do something for myself long-term. I wanted to be ice cream because I from my childhood even now to adult Abulat fond memories that include ice cream and I wanted to be a part of that for families and friends in people that I know and don't know into you know old a special place in their heart through. What makes your ice cream special will I I? It's delicious Zeiss Grievous but we make it all by hand. So it's all small batch make more than like four gallons at a time because of the machine and have. We do Vegetarian Gluten Free Vegan. We're working on some sugar free. So we're doing our best to make sure that we can accommodate everybody's lifestyles, dietary restrictions and slipped Reggie with cool Sitri and then ownership wise. We are black women and we're on what kind of edge does that give you that another shot might not have for us it's very important that we make people feel. Safe and inclusive and accepted because the things that we've both had issues with. Throughout our own lives, we want everybody to be able to come into the shop. We matter what they look like at identify as who they you know whatever they're going through we want them to feel safe to come and enjoy. Ice Cream cookie with themselves with whomever they desire and. Feel like that space is there's Well. That's cool. Because everybody should be able to enjoy ice cream. Absolutely. Absolutely. That's exactly. It's also the way a lot of our young listeners field. So let's hear some of your questions. Hello I'M CHARLOTTE I'll leave in Australia Newcastle and Fluffy so deny. To, learn how to Mike US Cream. I names ULA years old from Nova Scotia Canada, and I'm wondering how does not turn into ice cream? Hi May name is May and flavors up, and my question is holidays came made ice cream sounds like it's just cold cream, but there's a little more to it. So what is ice cream? So ice cream is defined as a frozen dairy dessert. That basically has air like incorporated into it while it's freezing because while the air. So the basis of it is usually heavy cream milk. Sometimes I'd guilt not always use sugar and then whatever your flavorings are gonna be. So we basically he'd all those things up together bring him to a point where all of our ron greedier become safe to eat. Whole it down and then. Put it into machine which we refer to as a batch freeze there that we would turn on as a cylinder on inside so that ice cream is spinning as getting cold. So while we incorporate air that ice cream, if you will you get basically this fluffy creamy product because when you mix. Hold an air milk. You get that texture that we all know as ice cream if it didn't spin around if you didn't get the air into it, would it just be like a block of ice to ascend? So does going to save. You don't put the air intuit things that we also know popsicles if you've ever had like a fudgesicle which is the icy but still cold that is what would happen if you didn't pump that air into it so that if you wanNA sound fancy, we referred to that freezing as. Simply. Frozen. So quietly frozen basically freezes. In like a period of inactivity.

"We've had a week off and. Has Gone to get his haircuts. Catherine's been hanging out with Magnus. The dog I've been stressing about my football team west from job in as they try to throw promotion away. That may or may not mean something to you, and we will be back with tennis podcasts over the coming weeks and months altogether chat in as we normally do, but today we have a very very special interview with the French Open champion of nineteen eighty-three, the world's number three as his highest ranking, but that really doesn't tell the story of Yannick who is unquestionably the coolest man I have ever met Davis Cup winning captain. Three Times Fed Cup winning captain as well and had a hugely successful music career. Once his tennis stays had come to an end I had the chance to meet him just over twenty years ago when he joined the champions tour. Tour retired players who just traveled to will played matches against one another him and John McEnroe and beyond bog, and all these greats of the game, and just got to know him a little bit at that time. He was always suggest to me. I haven't seen him for about ten years, but I managed to get in contact with him through a couple of other people when we were researching and trying to set up interviews full at tennis, relived series, particularly the French Open, so that we could tell that story, and you'll have heard an excerpt perhaps of this interview when we covered his run to that nineteen, eighty three French Open title, but the entire interview. It's just joy, and it will improve your mood, and if you do enjoy the into you tell your friends family, let your social media, and what's that group's now about it because it will just leave them happier than when they started listening to. It has Yannick Noah. I'd like to go right back to the beginning of your of your career, and even before your career and the reason for your career and. I believe a meeting with Arthur Ashe. Yep Absolutely. Our used to leave the group in Cameroon, Africa and We were I was playing detail club tennis was. Not, very, big in Cameroon in the whole country, back nine court, so to play tennis was very privilege radio privilege so. so we used to go to the club at night, but at that time my parents couldn't afford a racket in one day. When I heard that? Some Americans were coming to the club saw. Americans you know so. So Marty Riessen Charlie Pasarell, Tom, ochre, and Arthur Ashe where doing tour in Africa. And they happen to play one day my club. During the clinic they decide. They played with the kids. And I played with Sir and Liked what he saw. I was slim press. You know he was my heroes. At the end of the clinic gave me a racket is racket. Head competition that worth like. Probably Probably what my parents would making every month. and it was you know it was like a dream for me to meeting. Dr Racket Sonya poster. Saying To Yannick I hope I'll see one that. So that was very funny. But the next thing that happened is after this story went to the French Open and he talked to shut. It was the president of the Federation. I told him that he was a little kid was playing. Or was in French. Speaking. Country and And I I. The scholarship came to friends because of author I played in niece for few years. And? The first time I played in Wimbledon That was nine years after we met was in Wimbledon because as for wild card. That was accepted and we play doubles on center court. So that was a beautiful story, so yes, the so mean Africa. And he was a big part of my story. Because and after that you know. For some reason, he was always like you know. Not Too far helping me when I was younger growing up, and then you know played with him at Wimbledon, the first tournament. Back in the days. It was called Super Seris.

Bioethicist Jessica Flanigan On Libertarian Views Toward Face Mask Laws

"I'm going to stay on the subject of face mask a little longer as you probably know government orders to wear some kind of face covering whether outdoors or indoors or triggering hostility and some quarters, even though in the absence of a vaccine for covert 19 Health experts say face coverings remain one of the best tools to fight the spread on Wednesday, Georgia's governor Bryant can't even banned local governments for enforcing these laws. Now, critics of these laws generally say these mask orders violate their right to individual liberty, so we wanted to go a little bit deeper on this argument, which is generally described as libertarian. We've called on Jessica Flanagan for this. She teaches bio ethics at the University of Richmond and is the author of the book. Pharmaceutical Freedom. Why Patients have a right to self medicate and she is with us now, Professor Flanagan. Welcome. Thank you for joining us. Thank you. So let me just establish a few things before we start our conversation. We're not going to focus on people who don't take the virus seriously because it is serious. I mean, at least twice as many people have already died from this virus as dying a terrible year of the common flu, and we're also going to skip past people who say they're not wearing a mass because they somehow think it shows their support for President Trump. If they don't wear masks that's not Focus here. We want to focus on the core idea of individual liberty versus the common good and health context. So just start there. If you would, I mean is there a basic libertarian view about public health measures like face masks? I think that there's two questions about this. The first is should people wear masks and stay home? And I think they're the libertarian answer is yes, because libertarians believe, or they should believe that people should wear masks because infecting someone with a harmful illness violates their Bali rights. Self ownership in Bali rights are Foundational to libertarianism. So masks make it less likely that people will violate these rights. So all libertarians should support mask wearing and staying home when it's possible. Second question is harder, though, should the government forced mask mandates and lockdowns and there the answer is more. It depends. The government should only restrict people's freedom and private spaces when it's necessary, and when the benefits of enforcing it exceed the cost of enforcing it. So some cases of Preventing people from exposing other peoples to risks are less problematic. For example, the government enforces speed limits on public roads. But mask mandates or things like lockdowns would applied a private businesses as well. And in those cases, there's a higher burden of proof that the government would need toe. Clear to establish that there really should be a mandate. But it's not as clear in some contacts that that burden of proof of the mat. How has it not been met? When you have more than 130,000 people have already died? This is highly contagious. It's a respiratory virus. People can transmit it without even knowing that they are themselves sick. That's how has that bird not been met? I have salubrious. As I said, I think everybody should wear a mask and people just social distance for sure. But it's not as if enforcing the law is free of any kind of costs. And so in order to enforce the law that's limiting people's authority toe run. Their businesses are Acting certainly is in private spaces. Not we're not talking about the government spaces where I think a mass mandate is totally fine been private contexts. They should be able to show that they have tried less bird in some ways of addressing the virus first. So, for example, Putting more resources behind expanding access to test a medical care provided, more pp. Investing contact. Tracing FDA only approved pool testing yesterday so public officials can require massed on government property and they could buy a lot of other ways to mitigate the virus. But how do you respond to the fact that it is a fact that certain communities, particularly black brown, Native American people have demonstrated to be far more vulnerable for a whole array of reason, so that we've well discussed at this point than other groups? One of the things that were conversations we're starting to see now. Is a real sense that people who are not as deeply affected as they have been on the aggregate just don't care or that they have sort of abandoned a sense of moral responsibility to other people just because they don't look like them and because they are not them or not related to them. How do you respond to that? That's part of the reason that I think that we should really weigh the risks on both sides because On one hand, the virus is disproportionately harmful to marginalized communities, but on the other hand, expanding people's vulnerability to police power that expansion of legal interference or the threat of law enforcement. Is also going to potentially be disproportionately harmful to people who are marginalized or people who lack social power. And so when we're making these types of risk benefit judgments, we should consider the risks of enforcement in the discriminatory effects of law enforcement or that this proportion harms of law enforcement. Alongside the disproportionate harms of the virus that communities who are more marginalized. That's Jessica Flanagan, professor of bioethics at the University of Richmond and author of the book Pharmaceutical Freedom. My Patients Have a Right to Self Medicate Professor Flanagan. Thanks so much for talking to us.

Change in Dominican Republic as opposition wins presidency

"Let's go to the Dominican Republic now where the victory by the opposition part in this weekend's elections has marked the end of sixteen years of rule by the Dominican Liberation Party. The P. L. D.. The newly elected president Louis Shabina dare managed to capture fifty two point fifty three percent of the vote, well earlier I was joined on the line from the Dominican Republic's. Republic's capital not Sunday Domingo by bridget wooding, who's the director of the think tank, Obi m I, see a or center for immigration, observation and social, development in the Caribbean bridget started by giving us a bit of context and explaining just how significant the results are very significant, because we're talking about change after sixteen years of ruling party and we're talking. Talking about an almost exact reversal of what happened in the elections for years ago when the President Danilo Medina got in with sixty one percent of the vote against thirty four percent of our be now there, and as you mentioned now I've been there has with the fifty percent needed and Danilov menace stouffer. His candidate from the ruling party got only thirty four percent. percent or so of the vote, so if we're looking at something, which is which is very significant, all the way along President Medina had sought to transfer his popularity to his chosen candidate on solid casteel, but in fact council steel was probably the weakest candidates that he had because unsubtle casteel was involved with public works, which has been notorious for different corruption scandals. But then the President Danilo Medina thought that with Kobe nineteen. He would have things in his favor. There would be a kind of swath vote for the way. He was dating with things, but that was not to be because. Since January two, thousand, seventeen, this being the Green March movement against corruption, and the fact that disparities between rich and poor had been rolling, and there were a number of journalists who actually lost their jobs trying to denounce this, so this became a big issue, the government, totally of note, the evidence and the president. Medina also took further actions to control the judiciary, but what also happened was that the former president Leonel Fernandez split from the ruling party, and that divided what had been a pretty Monolithic party up over the last sixteen years, and he did it by suggesting that certain casteel the nominee President Medina had been put in by false means. But there was a thought that were things to go to a second round up. The ex-president learn finance might have gone in with with consol. But what was the most decisive thing that happened this year was that on the sixteen to February nineteen elections, there was a glitch and e-voting could not take place, and so, what happened then was that the elections were. Left right and center, but this was corruption. And especially, the millennials who had begun to take to the streets along with other you know in many Latin, American capitals so in recent months, really caught a bit between their teeth and the middle class, which had kept the ruling party in power for sixteen years, suddenly began to feel that they've been robbed up the wrong way. The things were things were unraveling now. The government you know is the country's largest employer, but even those that it was keeping in their pay when along a satisfied. Feeling change had to happen, and that was the ticket on which the new president has got in and posted to surprise then I mean it was clear that the tide was turning, but did you ever think that actually he would overturn the sixteen years of Monolithic rule I think all the more recent polls have shown that he's definitely in the lead. I think what was worrying. was that at the last minute that Kobe number? would be used as a cover to dissuade more middle class voters perhaps from going to vote, and also the usual tactics of paying people to vote or giving people handouts prior to elections this time it didn't work with the with the exception perhaps of the government in some of the poorest province near the border, but it didn't work the because people were determined the change and I think this is. Of what's happening in a number of Latin America where people do feel the need for change, and corruption is a big issue, and people feel that it should be tackled also covid nineteen demonstrated again the dispatch between rich and poor because those people who. Are Not documented migrants people have been nationalized. He had don't have access to government programs, and this doesn't look good in the face of the sustainable development goals. It doesn't look good in the face of the international community, so something was going to break I think, but nevertheless I think. People woke up. Fight surprised that it had happened so smoothly and things didn't go to a second round. This Sunday. Do you think that people would just then voting against the status quo, or was there something specific that abner was offering? What made his campaign so successful? I think he was really offering to clean things up, and so if you the bar next to my house today after elections happen, it was saying the whites have gone got in his Richmond from the cradle. They don't need to rob. So, there was the sense that. That These were people who have. had a different kind of agenda, and all walks of life seeing that. that there have been just too much of a monolithic hold on every aspect of society and under change was necessary, but I think the corruption thing was important, and then the fact that normally elections happen on the no glitches, but this glitch that happened in February with the elections and the feeling that there was something going on under. Probably the think was more likely with the incumbent party. I think those were the two decisive things that make people think. Yeah, we do need a change and finally bridget. What can we expect from his presidency? What will apart obviously from corruption be the main issues on the agenda? Well, obviously we have a big health crisis on our hands, and as you can see the Dominican probably is one of the worst countries in the insular. Caribbean and the election mobilization hasn't held so I think we're going to have to go back to the state of a state of emergency. The new governor will also be slightly tied in terms of how far it can go in more imaginative on policy, more imaginative domestic policy because it did do a deal in this S- i Brown with some of the more ultra nationalist sectors of society, and so they're going to have to reckon with that. I think trying to was cleaning up corruption, trying to create more jobs and trying to ensure the disparities between rich and poor are not sensu it'd such that in this pandemic. All can be served healthwise and in future crisis, people are not going to be discriminated one way or another. And that was bridget. Lots of background birdsong on the line from Santa Domingo.

They're trying to understand how to calibrate things out to make things work correctly out even talking gain more to one of these third party apps where you can have a spotter crew chief helping you make good decisions like that. The blame the game is is certainly challenging on. Its own but I had no idea the rest of it that went into it. And that's that's really what rock my world week one and even into week two. It was just. It was literally five six days a week. Four to five hours a day just trying to figure it all out and get get everything. Set up a more than anything else Jimmy. I mean obviously wanted to go to all the race tracks and stuff but he really wanted this final season to be for his fans for me in my final year in a cup car like I I feel I feel more for the fans that wanted to see me at their track and experienced sat have it. I mean I I know where I am very content and fulfilled with the career. I've had ensure I want to be on track and sure I wanNA places a final time but the You know I I feel more for the fans. That aren't having that opportunity now than I than I longed for myself to experience it and to be there that makes any sense and you know and that's only a small piece in the grand scheme of things when you look at all the individuals that are affected by the current virus. The family could. It's affected your Konami. Businesses business owners. You know this. This is way bigger than than me way. Bigger than what would What what was GONNA be my my final time at these tracks? So that stuff hasn't really even cross my mind all these bring it up. There's been so many other issues at hand to think about be concerned with that I I haven't thought about about much at all being my final year. What I might be missing for myself. It's been more about others More about the fans and feeling you know what I see in my my social thread. You know I see people that are lifelong fans that That are sad. They don't get the seeming seemingly run So it's it's been about others for more than it's been about what what affect me personally. And what does Hendrick and other teams in the sport? wh- what are they able to do during the stay at home orders? There's really very little we can do. We can work on computers but Andrex been shut down for a while now There's been an agreement reached where teams aren't sending employees into work And not only from a team and ask her standpoint but obviously you know what the governor has said and with the amount of people that can gather and give them play so There's there's many reasons why not teams are working and moving forward In groups and what physically working on cars in the world of SIM In it's hard to regulate that I know that a lot of these ways we advance our cars and physically taking vehicles to wind tunnel and rigs and such Shake trigger eggs and seven post rates. That's also been banned so there's been a big effort made kind of free the sport In I know our team much like many other teams spending a lot of time on the phone trying to strategize. What to you next to wear to work? What's look at but we physically can't give go anywhere and do anything right now so I feel. We really are trees of so. It's interesting that last one. I mean the entire industry according to Jimmy Johnson has been frozen solid. That's it. They're not. They have an agreement not to do anything. It's amazing. Yeah I mean that's kind of what has to happen you've got. These teams have hundreds of employees. And when you have a stay at home order for non essential businesses this is not an essential business so regardless even if the teams wanted to circumvent things They would not be in the right in the situation so it is good to see everybody. Kind of airing on the side of caution In taking this thing very seriously I just think they could do a lot from home. I mean at least crunching numbers and wind tunnel virtual stuff and I guess they've all agreed not to do that. So interesting. Yeah I think it's the right call because you're already situation where some of the lower teams are getting hammered by this the stoppage. So they're going to really struggling when we get back. The guys they have deep pockets could get a huge leg up on things right now and I think the the best way to kind of prevent that from happening is doing what they're doing and I applaud everybody for kind of agreeing to to not try to get ahead of the thing before before we get back all right. There's been a pack show. The checkered flag is flying on this show. This has been the final AP weekly catches next week right here when we will recap the racing from Richmond Sands Dale Earnhardt Jr. for some reason and preview whatever's next because they don't want to tell us anything ahead of time so We'll have all the stories in between all EU virtual drivers out there.

Even though you've only been here for like one night to play i show you move here and you're like god. This fucking sucks but i'm never moving away well. That's what i love about russia as well as like everybody that let's talk shit on it but but also everyone that lives here. We'll vehemently defended anybody that goes after it on my town but you're not allowed to talk so much. There's a like fierce fierce defensive richmond rather people that live here. I mean i've never seen it anywhere else that i've lived. It's this like it's a badge that you get to wear. I live in richmond and i just never got them southern california. I'm definitely not in waynesboro booking wayne's richmond. They said it but they are like i'm from a but no it's i think because the size town that we are we are growing a lot in the reason here's craft breweries holy shit rates but we are growing but we are still like the music scene has no business being as good as head for for the size town that we are not not at all and that's been consistent for how many decades forever i mean from white cross to fucking falling fort was falling. Were like the only straight edge band that i knew about and i didn't even live in richmond at time and they came up to see like i think it was youth of today are bold or side by side or some shit up in dc when we still have denoted in order virginia and i remember taylor and bo steel coming to a basement show in reston virginia and they brought like youth crews and these guys had like gardening gloves with fucking and all like oh yeah oh yeah y.

"You would think they wouldn't think twice about tattoos that were really heavily tattooed really have to like extremely heavily tajik where yeah just a normal richmond punt going up to another city is going to be sticking out like a sore imagine what it was like in the nineties like we were touring ring and i was like it's not a big deal. I don't care if your hands up like like we go to places that. I thought were like not progressive. That's it but i mean i wouldn't stick out right like full sleeves in the nineties. I had a lot of tattoos at fucking stupid. Haircuts gauges years at goatee was no big deal here but we go to fucking austin or new york or chicago or fucking l. a. or any of these fucking big ass places and they're like what the fuck is that yeah like what the fuck are you doing doing yeah and then we could've show and be like what the fuck is that asshole do why is he does he have a guitar like what <hes> silly super crazy back then and nobody blinked data back then so even so now when it's even easier to see people. No one gives a shit who the fuck you are. That's right. That's that's quintessential richmond. Fuck about you richmond ready but it's still when you go other places. It's still a thing yeah if you go there. I'm currently working on. I only have half asleep right now but most my friends have full sleeves full blown out and like he'd be with them i can. I can see people kinda looking in. It's in it reminds me that richmond what what was it two years ago was voted third per capita to evolution of third per capita. You'd be murder now. It's better than it was las vegas and miami and richmond per capita. We were the heavily set to put them. It's give it look what we're going against miami and fucking miami miami and those are all transient cities like you go in. You lived there for a year because you wanna live in miami. You wanna live in las vegas and you go this fucking blows. It's really hot here sucks but then you come here and like you. I said it's a boomerang. People move here like fuck this place man. I'm fucking leaving and they throw the boomerang and then they come right. They say i'm never coming back to the city. They always this comeback yup yup and if they say i'm gonna move there for three months and i'm gonna come back for the summer. They never come back. Yeah there are there are the few that do escape in and it's just like but it's weird. It's like they go completely completely off the radar though yeah and won't be gone for like ten years right. They'll leave and they're like oh yeah. Fuck this place. I'll never i'll be back in six months and then like it's always something being stupid like their grandmother has cancer and they had to come back and they're like back for a couple of weeks and then they never leave. The black hole of richmond is fuzzy thinking thanks yeah it's it's a legit thing part of it too and this is also changing with the bumping population here is that richmond's on expensive place live when in comparison it yeah. It's more expensive than it used to be fisher yet for sure but it's not nearly as bad like i was looking at the cost of living in different places in like we're right on right in line with like pittsburgh as far as cost of living which is weird like thing to balance with pittsburgh. I had a blast in pittsburgh also also tour guide. I did have a tour guide from pittsburgh anti flag and then pour steel town. I'm just gonna throw but all i can think of is fucking the steelers right now. The pittsburgh penguins now plays hockey outside. It was fucking what i like dirty towns. I like dirty cities that have this kind of like lived in kind of a little bit grungy kind of tone and that's part of the reason why i love lucy in ninety four when they're cooking..

"Lost the bout in nine close rounds with one brutalizing blow opening up a dangerous cut over his left eye. Okay. So before we go any fiver, I need to explain the sport. Richmond was partaken was bad knuckle boxing. I want you to think about all the famous books matches Iverson or heard about our levers is Frazier Tyson versus Holyfield feel reverses kicks Linko how even rookie verses Ivan Drago. And for food in the bin. There were no gloves. No judges and no points round lawsuit. As long as they lost it and fights could often go on for hours. If you elect standard at the end. This was a brutal sport. And looking at for modern is you might one. The why Richmond a moderately successful man in his own right? And that roughly four years old might want to put himself Rawda. But I believe that what fueled Richmond was the years of abused at injured. I as a boy in America, then as a young man in Yorkshire, a black man living in those times just had to take it with no chance of recourse and even lesser charts of Justice. And so I believe that Richmond. So is owned Justice in the ring. After his punish in defeat. Less determined man would have possibly quit. The sport by eighteen o five Richmond made a successful comeback defeat in Jewish boxer by the name of usurp. He was left. Air quotes, totally disfigured off the six vicious rounds. Richmond. Quickly followed this with a win over Jack homes in another one-sided be likened to the time equifax a public slaughter. These an of interest opened up the possibility of a rematch with Richmond's nemesis. George Maddox in eighteen nine the fight took place in August and Richmond batted Maddox across a bloody fifty rounds. Fifty two rounds? Fifty two rounds? Do you know how much you must have to eight someone in order to fight them for fifty two rounds? A conflict of anything can do for fifty two rounds. I don't even think I can think of anything I can do for two rounds, wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Anyway, back to the show. At the end of the bow his fifty two rounds Maddox was described as hideously disfigured. But oh who watched the contest agreed that the skill and bravery of the team and went without question. Now wealthy from his winnings. Breath petition in haunts Richmond wisely invested money into property becoming owner and landlord of the host and Dovan pop Nellis square. During this time Richmond began to chew to other young fighters. One of him was the young gifted and black box Tamani who under Richmond's chew tillage when onto fight the British champion, Tom Cribb in one of the most contested box abouts in British history. But I'll tell that story in another episode. Richmond ju to some financial losses was eventually forced back into the ring. He for Jack Davis in eighteen fourteen. And then in eighteen fifteen to his riskiest fight when aged an unbelievably fifty one black really doesn't crack he fought and defeated Tom Shelton who was Hof his age. It was an epic battle with Richmond eventually defeating Shelton. Richmond ju to some financial losses was eventually forced back into the ring. He for Jack Davis in eighteen fourteen. And in eighteen fifteen took on his riskiest fight when aged unbelievable fifty one he fought and defeated Tom Shelton who was Hof his age. It was an epic battle with Richmond eventually defeating Shelton. Again, according to books in writers of the day. Richmond took a punish him blow from show in the second round and somehow managed the punches way through the majority of the remaining twenty rounds. Unable to see our his left eye off to this victory. His place among British boxing elites now finally established Richmond began to showcase his skills to European royalty. And in eighteen twenty one he acted as an usher at the coronation for King, George the fourth. It cannot be stressed enough that Richmond Chievo all this during a time when slavery was a very legal and very widespread practice. Bill richmond.
