What John Thompson Meant To DC
"What was it like for you to cover John Thompson and the Hoyas as a young reporter? What were your interactions with him like? It was. You know it was an education was twenty, three, twenty, four years old and that was my first beat but John was a handful. As you can imagine, and he controlled everything we control the player access you controlled access to himself and draw the program, and so John was someone that you You had to kind of meet on his terms. Can you describe he was six foot ten? He was just this literally and figuratively massive figure. Can you describe what it? was like to be in his presence well, I mean look any six, ten, three, hundred, pound guy is going to have a certain amount of power to him. You know he wasn't nimble I won't say he was Nimble but he certainly had the meeting of former athlete and you know he had a big loud booming voice nothing had happened by accident I had no intentions of being a basketball court. I. Wanted To be a teacher basically social worker kind of person freelance. Knew. How to use his size and his voice to great effect and I, was not the recipient of John's paint peeling yelling as as the players often were but they will tell you that there was just there was just nothing like it when he really was angry and was coming after you about a mistake, you made a decision you made. He certainly tilted the room when he came in when their buzzer went off and they said it's over. We didn't stay up and down the hallway and talk with people kissing is just so we can get a good article written about us he coach during the glory days of the Big East what do you remember most about his team's and just the style and the way that they played? Well, the frenetic full court pressure was their thing. To set up an impressed. Retract. Very physical teams anybody that came into the pink dot hit, and that's just the way that they had always played. Here. And that leads to a lot of confrontations. A couple of pretty bad fights. But a lot of grabbing and holding things like that. And that's just the way that they had always played in obviously worked for them. David you're born and raised DC. Can you talk about what John? Thomson and the Georgetown Program? Men's to people in DC and in particular to black basketball fans in the city DC was like a lot of cities in the eighties dealing with a lot of different stuff that was that was very difficult. The year is only sixty days old during that time. There have now been ninety-two homicides here in the District of Columbia last year sixty to eighty percent of the murders in the nation's capital, we're listed as drug related. You had the explosion of crack cocaine in DC in in the mid eighties just devastated whole swath of the community and you had Marion Berry who was this incredibly polarizing figure, and this is before his drug problems came to bear. He was polarizing well before then because he insisted that these rich white guys that tended to run the city hire black people all the people who only know Marion Barry through the nasty headlines in the videotape of crack cocaine. Don't know extraordinary work. He did in this in Washington to open up the doors of government to the black people of Washington you're shutout for years decades, and then you have this presidential era of Reagan, where there was a lot of hostility towards cities, there was a lot of cutting a city services. There was a lot of emnity towards people that were on welfare and they've perception that raking perpetuated was that all these people are welfare cheats and they're not in their bums and you're not working for a living perhaps the most insidious effect of welfare is it's usurpation of the role of provider. Public assistance for a single mother can amount to much more than the usual income of a minimum wage job. In other words, it can pay for her to quit work. These competing forces, all kind of colliding with one another in the city in the early eighties in the mid eighties and into that Maelstrom, you have this basketball team. That is good enough to win a national championship in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four. Jobs. The I ask championship. And then notice that the team is mostly black eleven of the twelve guys or thirteen or fourteen guys that get your attention in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three, or eighty four you know rap videos late eighties is a Lotta Georgetown starter jackets in those videos. was torn concept had long hair and short baby came in national programs to the point where a lot of black people thought. Georgetown was an HP. Come to the. Question to see hundred. So there was this kind of interesting blend. Wall Street types and judges, and fortune five hundred CEO's with the people that cleaned the offices and drove the buses rooting for the same team and it was gonNA. Kinda, cold because it kind of it helped bring the city together in ways that really only the football team had done previously and it brought a lot of pride to the city as as a six. They were proving that black kids from inner city high schools could go to Georgetown and do work. They could do the work and that was a source of immense pride to people in DC Thomson was, of course, the first black basketball coach to win a national championship. But David you've written about how Thompson would bristle when asked about that accomplishment. Why did he? Take exception to that question will John would always say is that the question implied that he was the first black coach who who had the qualifications to win a national championship I'm not interested in being the first and only black do anything because it implies that in Nineteen eighty-four, a black man finally became intelligent enough to win NCAA, title and that's very misleading. And that was John's way of saying you know you need to understand the history of coaching. There was a lot more deferential treatment provided to white coaches for for decades and coaches like Adolph rupp that didn't recruit black players. was hostile toward black players. So that was John's way of saying you know do your homework. In nineteen, eighty nine. He famously walked off the court before a game to protest an NCWA rules that he felt disproportionately affected black students. undercurrent NCWA rules students can qualify for athletic scholarships by scoring seven hundred out of a possible sixteen hundred on the College Board Sat test fifteen out of thirty six on the act or with a two point average and certain. Subjects proposition forty two would require athletes to have both. What did he? What did he say about that? John's position was that both the sat scores and your grade point average could be impacted adversely due to the educational disparities present throughout public schools at the time black has weren't being taught the things that were on the sat. He made his point that you know these tests should not be the end all and be all in terms of determining whether or not a kid was smart enough to go into college. Moment existence and I. started into school that I would not been dotted with an opportunity to get a college education myself. He was recruiting kids that play but also kids that can do the work. So it was not as much an issue for him in terms of recruiting it was more the bigger picture of. Are we going to allow these tests to determine whether black kids can get into colleges and then they finally wound up modifying prop forty two as a result of it.

Wasser out the noise of the crowd. Finish the race I mean I've been race, but.

"Was going to certainly was going to certainly provide Some pace I mean essentially is the pace and Dakota would You betcha I'm a bumper is going to have to stay in. Contact the judge on the run. Now and you know can stock I would guess that question Markey's got a little bit of speed But maybe maybe chamber doors. I was going to try to get away with judge on the run. And you Betcha I'm bumper and it's that race April thirteenth At at Fonterra which is the same level. And you know in here for the tag. So you Betcha I'm bumpers cleared the the condition and she's a nine year old mayor. She runs back to that race In April she's a player in here with judge on the run. So I I was GONNA probably go too deep third leg and I thought this was the toughest race on the in the sequence. Some really well matched horses. The seventh the five thousand dollars claimer six furlongs Never won four or hasn't won since December of last year so this murder and the nine or out in here in the Ninth Star. Hanta was was going to be a player for me but that said I had shimmering dream on top so That just makes me have the ability to to pare down a little bit here Shimmering Dream You go back to that race. Free Back On Terror Paradise that was pretty good I just I kind of like the move from paradise here and and I think you're going to class up nicely with this bunch. If you look at the numbers the buyers the source Outta town has been firing. Some good numbers and again. I think he's GonNa fit nicely with this. That twelve one looks a little bit long because I think other people look at those numbers. But maybe we'll get some value but I put shimmering Dream on top say goodnight Gracie in the second spot. Have speed from the rail One similar race last time so again one of the situations. Where did it last time when at right back and spell wind ahead kind of sitting outside of my mix but now it's not hundred out? I'll pull pull spell winder and there's there's enough there to think that this source and the best effort can get up and do it and at a five thousand dollar conditional. It's just who comes out and this kind of feeling their oats that day. So I think spell winder is playable to have eight one in six. I'll probably use all three of those. The one problem with Spell Winder There's a there's a negative and there's a positive negative is that She's become a bit of a refusenik. I mean she. There was a point here Going back to Remington In November four straight seconds and she just hasn't won in ages and them essentially a year The positive is she gets the services of ARRIETTA. you know who showed up here a couple of weeks ago and and has been you know making a good impression ilet to Canterbury. I imagine as soon as things wrap up but I agree Star Hunter. Our annabel may be a little Fianna Fianna Hills They become they become the principles with Shimmering Dream and memories. Galore out You might be able to get away with just three and here I am glad I honor else scratches. Yes sure Shimmering Dreams Star Hunter. Oh excuse me. you go. Yeah drew alliance or the wrong one. Nice thank you. So Shimmering Dream reinforced around Abell Fianna Hills The the eighth and this is a thousand Optional claimer non winners a four lifetime and this feels like that group as I said horses. We've seen repeatedly bay flowers and Indian roses who we actually latched on to the beginning of April with that That big price. That was That was actually. Are I think introduction to fodder was Indian roses? That was okay. The last feature of the season. And would you do in here? I five still looking at two six. One Five Indy roses comes up. Close up second last time to Go places They're both in here But that was the last grace randy roses. Let's go places as subsequently had one and through in a little bit of a done And that race to back where. Let's go places. One you know down the number maybe a little bit of an aberration over the past racist. I was willing to leave that one out. I may regret that. But indy roses. Certainly on the improving numbers. Nice close up second second-place last night Have that one on top. Make hours the second spot based close up second for this one last time as well on an improved number over the last. Three races Ego to the race score back and it was a very nice number compared to this punch with a good win at the seventy five hundred dollar claiming level but I think the racist two and three back indicate horse spits with this kind of a class level as well. Chevy in the mix for me the race to back at the five levels. Pretty good bounced up to this level last time and ran a decent seconds of that a little experience with this Brunch. Dixie flyers interesting coming out of a couple of stakes races. You know you don't know what the real class of stakes partner is. But I think the horse is going to be a player so I will definitely use those sport not a bunch for lunch with area on board boy that one. I'm not sure what I'm GonNa do with that. I have five in the night to one of these races. I'll go five deepen one. I'll air a horse out a little bit but I have a two six one seven five. I'll definitely use at least a top four. Yeah I'm spread wide there to especially if I can end up narrow I'll swear I might even be inclined to push the button to get to the NIGHTCAP. Well I didn't. I didn't mention global. Jane started the career New York and has certainly has some fat class in there. But I just couldn't pull the trigger there but it certainly is an all fall. Kind of a racist people can afford it and What are you doing the NIGHTCAP REAL? Quick four nine six eight and can Dreaming Diamonds Looks Pretty Good. You know it's one of these weird just looking for a little life in a an otherwise. We feel pretty consistent numbers with this bunch. Gypsy Wind Genie. The race to back.

"Alex device jumps off the page. And I'll probably put a just a reasonably priced sticking together and sing. I may single the first couple and then go a little bit deeper in the later. Legs maybe back up with a picture To put in some horses I didn't news but again with a reasonable ticket. It seems like Alex of Ice Jumps off the page. I haven't nine one six thousand seven but I'll lean on Alex of ice. I mean he just when you look at the buyer figures. Ep has a clear edge on this launch. If I was going to go a little deeper front office I think Offer some opportunity. You look at the race three back and it was a decent little third with decent number. That's the blinkers shafter known And he is maybe interesting Best trick yet Potentially moving forward and proving I could make a case there but if I was gonna go for the crazy horse near it probably Tauzin Jira Fan. hasn't been seen since Remington in what Tober November but class. Wise I think he might stack up with these just at this level. I'm not sure But what the horse might not need a race To get back into some decent forum but again those don't a little bit deeper in this leg. I I'd certainly toss him it but I'll probably say just use Alex device. Well the first the first leg of the pick five starts at six forty eight eastern five forty eight central and. I can't argue at all. I mean Kelly Martinez and her husband and show horses had a had a very good a comeback effort at beat ahead but On on his vast absolutely this flea Alex Four year old seems very very imposing. And this is the worst in fact that I it just funny we just got done with Jim rupp and this was a horse that was taken from his son in laws. Jen Star outfit and Brad Cox for fifteen thousand They they claim doors from hobby from Steve. Abby at Indiana last summer and they got a win with him and broke the maiden thirty and then dropped in for fifteen actually had gotten disqualified from that race and they dropped him for fifteen and he got poached and it took a few more starts to break the maiden and that happened at Mahoning Valley. Turned UP Here at Fodder and I agree I mean could be especially if you have a small budget Alex of second leg this a Nebraska Bred Filly Group Seven thousand and it's an optional claimer non winners the three lifetime six minutes. They say I'm going to start off pretty late. Nah May lean on judge on the run in here You know have the Nice Win last time. In a similar event these are the kind way always say went right back one in a similar event last time why not right back again today in this very similar spot so I'll probably there but chamber doors. I think is is one that I am going to debate again. I'm GonNa Watch for those final set of scratches. Maybe what we have is. We have But I made chamber doors into the next because I think this one has a little early positional speed was just behind the top pick last time and so I think you know at this level. Wouldn't shock me if they switched positions And then you Betcha I'm bumper in heard spot Comes out to third place behind those two last time so again has the potential to be a little bit player in here and as I said there were Currently for scratches in one of those stretches love supply and the number eight is out of this race is I was looking at that horse a little bit too. That makes that simplifies things to be a little bit. But I'll probably lean on judge on the run here as I say a little bit deeper and some of the later lakes.
How to read those unemployment numbers
"Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is the twenty first of May today as always to have you along everybody and we begin on Thursday. I think. Actually this is the eighth or ninth Thursday in a row with yet another staggering report on people filing for unemployment benefits in this economy. Two point four million people this week down yes from a week ago but still basically the entire population of Houston Texas. Now which need to know though. Is that those weekly unemployment claims. Come in two varieties marketplace's Nancy Marshall Genzer gets us going with the difference between the two and why that difference matters initial jobless claims are how many new people file for unemployment benefits in a week. Continuing claims measured the total number of workers on unemployment. Erica gration the former head of the Bureau of Labor. Statistics says think of it like a bathtub. The initial claims is how much water is flowing into the bathtub and the continuing claims is how much water is in the bathtub. Each numbers important Chris. Rupp key chief. Financial economist at the Global Financial Group G follows both well. That's why God gave us to do. Is You have to watch both that. Rookie says when he wants to tease out underlying trends that continuing claims numbers more important. Because the minute the total number of people receiving unemployment starts to come down. That's the key signal that the labor markets improving the continuing jobless claims numbers will play a key role in whether the post corona virus recovery. Looks like the or you. Meaning the economy improves quickly. Or is flatter like an L. Dartmouth College Economists Patricia Anderson will be watching that if the continuing claim start falling. Fairly rapidly than. That's good signs that we might be more. U shaped than l-shaped Anderson says if the continuing jobless claims just keep plodding along at about the same rate. That's not a sign that we're really turning the corner. I'm Nancy Marshall Genzer for marketplace
Consoles: The Dreamcast's Life After Death
"It's Timber Ninth. Nineteen Ninety nine nine nine ninety nine and somewhere in Japan. A spy has made her way. Deep into a mainframe. Computer she hacks. In and disables. A security guard investigates she knocks him out with a well-placed kick with the computer system. It comes to life. Everything goes a strange swirling pattern. Pops up on the monitors. It's obvious that the system is thinking the spy folks. The thicky computers out to stop her. It tries to lock her inside the building. The spy smashes through a window but not before she grabs a case and lungs off with inside that case a prototype for a new kind of machine that could change. Everything describing was a television commercial called apocalypse. It was promoting the newest video game console from Game Company. Sega and no ordinary console either. This revolutionary device was called the dreamcast in that apocalypse ad. What's inside the case? This is stealing. Is that very consul? Well then the dreamcast Box it sort of spins off of the back of the thief and lands in the street and the the the lid of this magic case kept the box plug. In the whole time POPs open camera's zooms into the dreamcast and into the window and goes down to the bottom where it appears that all the characters from all the Games are all gathered and there we have sonic down there and he he triumphantly says we got in the whole place rupp's and everybody's screaming. That's Brian and Pacino. The creative director of the apocalypse ad campaign and the Sauna keys referring to is sonic the Hedgehog Sega's famous game character in the nineties. Seca was one of the most recognized video game companies in the world. The by the end of that decade the competition was proving to be fierce so up at the House on dreamcast. It would be the company's Savior. The apocalypse ad was described as the most epic video game commercial ever created. But how else to show off the most advanced game console ever made so smart. You could almost say it really was thinking. Alas the dreamcast did not change world. It barely made a dent. It's considered by some to be the greatest console that never stood a chance. It was the last console Sega would build and had very nearly broke the company in our penultimate episode of the season a season all about hardware. That changed the course of development. We look at the short lived history of the Sega dreamcast yet. Despite the short shelf-life dreamcast is still considered by many to be one of if not the finest gaming consoles of all time and twenty years after its death it manages to live on in a very real way. I'm throwing at Barak and this command line. Heroes and the littoral podcast from hat like thinking computer in the apocalypse ad that whisper thanking became the company's new tagline for their new console. So the thought of having our our veal always whisper. It's thinking we thought that would be a really neat way to to sort of evolve that icon sake scream. Here was a console that got smarter as he played. At least. That was the marketing Pinch Console. That brought something new something big something live. Aleutian aries to the home video game market. A system built to serve the hardcore Gamer and inside the company. The thinking was that this console would make Sega. The biggest name in video gaming fish was going to change gaming. This was going to change the world so what happened to figure that out. We need to go back all the way back to level one throughout the early nineties. Sega had a reputation for making gains. There were super cool and more mature than what the competition offered particularly intendo. And it's princess saving plumbers. They built this reputation with a very successful console Sega Genesis. Sega decided they were going to be really cutting edge. And these kids who had had the Nintendo's that will now they're teenagers and they want they want real sports games with real teams. They want bloody fighting games like mortal Kombat which came later on and they wanted a more mature it. Your face sort of system. Alex Handy is the founder and director of the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland. California he also works for Red Hat if you go back and look at ads from video game magazines in this period. They're kind of shocking their ads. Where there's like a bloody severed arm with gristle coming off of it and it says this is your best weapon against the Bad Guy Light. So Sega does really really well with this extreme in your face. Sort of successive genesis will sonic the hedgehog sort of impertinence as opposed to Mario's oshkosh b`Gosh overalls kind of happy theme. More than thirty million. People bought the SEGA GENESIS. A sixteen bit console that played games from cartridges. Gamers around the world loved it but over time sake struggles to grow as user base after Genesis. They introduced a thirty two bit. Sega Saturn more powerful than genesis. It display both two D and Basic Three D. Graphics but the Saturn Platform never really took off sales struggled. They managed to sell nine point. Two million consoles only a third of what the genesis sold another sticking point developers found a challenging to program games for Saturn's proprietary in house designed hardware. This was an issue. Sega made note of for the future. Add to that the launch of nintendo sixty four and then Sony's first entry into the market with the playstation and gaming was suddenly getting crowded and very competitive in one thousand nine hundred eight. Sega posted a loss of two hundred seventy million dollars. North American headquarters video game. Boss Bernie store announces that quote. The Saturn is not our future. He kills the console with that. Sega turns its focus to building the next generation of council level to building the dream. The Sega Saturn had hurt the company's brand and bottom line if sega was going to reclaim its market share and reputation. This next console needed to be powerful easy to co for and unlike anything else

New EU chief takes helm amid rising suspicion of China
"New president of the EU Commission also funded lion will have spent her first night in office last tonight. Having already we think held urgent telephone call with Beijing. The expose last week on the existence of Detention Kemper Muslim leaguers has brought China's track record on human rights right to the top of our funding lines to do list. Let's look at what she in. The Commission can actually do. Let's hear from Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue. Welcome back the studio Isabel. Doing no of this phone call to take place between Oslo Funder Lion and Beijing yesterday. We don't although she did she has made Much of Saying that it would so I imagine it would also imagine she'd get pretty dusty response from Beijing. What was the intentionally the? The purpose of the phone call was literally. That's really her first day in office yesterday on the Sunday indeed. I think that there is a feeling in Europe That China has been. It's sort of general after say trend against China in the last few months in in a concern in Europe that China has too much power and abusing its power to undermine global norms including on human rights and that Europe needs to take more bust view. So I think that what we're seeing in that commitment over these really appalling abuses That you know that's what we're seeing. A new commission come in with the determination to stand up to China just remind us of what was said what was revealed last week in this expose. On the treatment of weakened Muslim there was a cache of documents. Som Four hundred which went to the New York Times A further batch that went to an international consortium of Investigative Journalism Journalists and although Ah the existence of the camp said being extremely extensively documented for more than two years now the detail of the organization and including many a a personal and telling details which included in. What do you tell a university student going home for the summer? WHO finds that? He's Oh her entire family his disappeared so it was the kind of meticulous rupp very chilling planning State directed absolutely top down To to to lock up one in ten or as far as we know of the weaker population so although the camps were known about. There's something about you know the revelation of the of the of the bones of this policy that that made people deeply deeply uncomfortable and actually highlighted the degree to which China has go away with this so far. Is Anybody greatly surprised. However about these great revelations I think many people suspected that there was a but the fact is as you say as you've been saying continually there is this buildup of evidence against China that it is Going against the beliefs Explo- uh ex- exploiting the global norms. It's sort of surprises. That surprised me that as underline sort of took it upon herself to make a fresh. I should tempted something that everybody sort of knew about anyway. Well it's true that the camps were known about because they say that the detail of the documents Really confronted Particularly Europe actually with them with the inaction although we have in fact through the year Seen a growing effort particularly by Europe to confront China over Xinjiang at the The Council on Human Rights the UN Council Counseling Human Rights Meeting in Geneva There was a letter signed by more than twenty countries calling for China to release the detainees China has put in an enormous effort in the last few years to undermining the principle of universal human rights and particularly at the UN. So for example China has been trying to advance the the premise that notable rights to equal and the right to development and state sovereignty so victory entry trump's individual human rights and that goes directly against the universal principle. It it implies that poor people Don't have rights or or don't don't desire rights which is which is nonsense and that that's completely any it's an important breach and China has managed to mobilize countries search which have An economic dependence on China to support them in Geneva in mounted very well documented campaign trying to shut out civil society actors NGOs who might criticized trying to put in a government sponsored NGOs who would sing the praises raises of China's policies and explicitly saying two countries which Had any kind of economic dependence on China there quite a lot now that if they showed stop and criticized then you know deals would not go well if they showed up and praised then they would benefit so you know. There is no doubt that China has managed to Marshal Marshall a lot of opinion on its side in the has been remarkable silence for example or endorsement for many Muslim countries. They have not criticized at China. I know I on on locking up a million Muslims for being Muslim and that's pretty remarkable So you know. We are confronted with with the situation situation in which if these rights are defended. It's come down to the European Union Australia and Canada and even the United States is not reliable ally in this so I think that for the new commission the European Union. It's a bit of a moment saying do defend the system or not. What does the e you you do? Though in terms of concrete action I mean we've seen a trade war bursts out between the United States and China and neither side into becoming coming out well from it now. The European Union's Heft when it comes to trade is enormous but you can see immediately the any sanctions that you might put on. China will be met with equally tough measures. I think that I doubt that we would see a trade war. Exactly I mean it's true that the European European Union has is an enormously important trading block for China's largest trade partner but European Union. Although doesn't speak because one over trade Except for you know the kind of You wide regulations but individual countries tend to make their own make pursue their own interests with China But the fact that the e U is willing publicly to criticize China the e you could for example push at the UN. I'm for sanctions against individuals. Who are involved with this trade? It could name and shame companies that are dealing That are installing technologies in Xinjiang And in fact it could under the principles of of human rights and business. It could sanction companies over human human rights abuses. So it's not without weapons and and I think you know put China China very much dislikes being called out on human and rights abuses in a moment when it's trying to present itself as the benign actor On the global On the global scene so simply having you who are being vigorous in terms of its criticism changes the atmosphere and gives cover to some other countries which might wish to but don't quite have the courage ridged criticize China. Finally we have the member-state ambassadors who already in Beijing being invited to Xinjiang which is where the majority if we miss them live at the beginning of next year can anything be settled on then. yes Although these visits of course are heavily managed and it wouldn't be the first time time we've had official visits to Xinjiang in which The visitors the official visit confronted with people who sing and dance and say that they're happy to be there so I didn't think anyone. Anyone has enormous illusions about about what you're seeing And I think the you made its point by By giving the Sakharov prize the alarm toady a who is a weaker intellectual as an economist at a university in In Beijing who in twenty fourteen was sent to in jail for life had all his assets confiscated leaving his family destitute in a in a savage sentence against a man who had always been of voice of reason and moderation and who was well known to journalists and indeed to ambassadors and human rights workers So I I think that you know laying down these markers important The visit will you know I. I don't know quite what such visit will achieve except that it's important wouldn't go on insisting on visits but I think that as I say The ambassador isn't Aachen have many illusions that the people that they speak to a free to speak Or they will uncover any great surprises. It will be very very carefully prepared

"rupp" Discussed on Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast
"Now. Let's get back to our talk about reviving ancient ales with beer archaeologist travis rupp. We'll travis. We were kind of curious here. One thing we saw in addition to all the beer archaeology. Is it your professor of classic literature so which classic literature is the busiest yeah. That's a good question especially. When you talk about classic literature to people often they're like so what reads like jane eyre and stuff like that what the heck's talk about right so yeah with teaching classics yeah kinda teach all things classic doc oriented which means anything greek roman egyptian as well as some near eastern precedents and roots in there as well and honestly so far <hes> of my research search which i've been working on now for almost seven years is the egyptians are certainly the most open with their conversation of being beer consumers and beer producers along with some of the near eastern empires interestingly enough though the greeks and romans. They don't talk about bureau that often. They always you know they poo poo. It is is terrible measly plea vian thing that's only for the impoverished while they're always drinking their wine but i assure you as i've been digging into this and doing a lot of traveling in spent a lot of time in europe especially in greece in italy over the last couple of years <hes> daydream quite severe. They don't talk about it. There's beer lovers. They're absolutely how would they not be. I would think they're like having these weird orgy parties and they've got their rooms and all that of course drink some beer. Somebody brings that in. They're involved in orange either eating all the food like yeah. Give me a little beard. Say why not you are absolutely correct and i think like one of the one of the things it's really kind of interesting diving into these various cultures alters in having spent the vast majority of my life working in this area of the world oslo didn't expect to find myself as being a beer expert in the region when i started down this track a long time ago but but the egyptians are much more open about it because they saw this is that they stop here is as drink of the gods and it was it was considered the the best gift to give to the pharaoh and we consider the fact that the egyptians are the source of their culture thrives off of the agrarian capabilities of the nile delta. Talk a lot of barley and wheat being grown and you can convert that in alcohol pretty quickly. You know it's not say the egyptians didn't make wine they did it just wasn't nearly as prevalent megan agin into the greek and roman culture and one thing. I like to even remind my students often is that we read these plays by euripides. We read material from plutarch ktar gore or <hes> plenty the elder from <hes> the roman world in they always talk about wine wide and they kind of again damn beer to a degree in these are really affluent wealthy guys right in. I tell my students can you imagine if we left it up to the upper one percent of our population to write all all of our history you know what are they gonna say about us. When are they gonna say about beer and that's essentially what it comes down to it. The greeks and the romans is only about one percent of population was literate. It's always material..

Uber reports $1 billion loss in first post-IPO quarterly results
"Uber's I report as a public company and it was a doozy. And by that I mean Uber. Lost a billion dollars in just ninety days. Jason, we've seen unprofitable startups lose money and investors will still buy the shares. You look at the stock Uber's basically flat on Friday, and that tells me among other things that they're not really doing anything just yet to get Wall Street excited. I mean, I think that's a fair statement. I think the story for investors when it comes to. It's figuring out all of the different ways they can leverage this network to make money. And so today, that's the rideshare business. That's new mobility, scooters. Uber eats business, super freight. These are all pieces to that overall puzzle for me. I mean the twenty percent topline growth a navy. My expectations were just a little bit higher that seemed kind of you know not not nothing to write home about. But by the same token grows bookings, Rupp thirty four percent to fourteen point six billion dollars trips grew thirty six percent. And that's good as well. I think if if you look at the call certainly the theme was ubereats. I think that's where they're really seeing the biggest opportunity at least in the near term gross bookings for that side of the business, where three point one billion dollars. It was up one hundred seventeen percent excluding currency. They have two hundred twenty thousand restaurants on board with that network. The thing is with food delivery. There's the economics of it can be tricky. There are expenses in maintaining that network. It's not always a no brainer for the restaurants either in in. We're seeing grub hub dealing. Some of those challenges as more of the pure play there. So I mean I, I you as an impressive businesses an impressive network. I think with a lot of potential. They're going to have to figure out as they go along away to become profitable with these four main drivers. I know a lot of people are looking towards those self driving cars thinking, that's really the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow just got to recognize that still at least a decade away, feeling people who are thinking that we're going to be surrounded by these self-driving cars in the next few years, just a naive point of view in my, my opinion I could be wrong. Of course. I saw some interesting analysts comm comments that price competition with lift might be dying down. Which would be good for them would increase take rates, which is the amount of money that Uber can keep after after paying drivers. So, you know profitability must be right around the corner, if, if the corners on the moon, but, you know, when you don't have profits you talk about the path to profitability, that's the big word and path to profitability for me is just a euphemism for we don't make any money. And, you know, I don't know how to the stock if they don't make money, well, but to that point, I mean you go back to the top line revenue, Jason, it may, I think if Uber had come out in this quarter and grown top line revenue. Forty percent fifty percent, something like that. I think that just Wall Street a little bit more extended as you said, twenty percents, it's like well, that's fine.
An Interview with 'Avengers: Endgame' Directors, The Russo Brothers
"This popcorn where we tell. You. What's happening at the movies? And as far as the world's concerned, there is no other than adventures endgame, really, you know, so let's face it. And we have the director of that movie with us. Anthony Russo Joe Russo. How are you, sir? You know, everybody's talking about the fact that in its first week it's broken every record. It's like a one point two billion dollars in doing it. But what really gets me about this success, which I certainly don't begrudge you. I'm sure you're getting ninety percent, right. It's of course, this point four movie. Oh, yeah. Totally it. But to me this movie is a love letter to everything that the avengers mean to so many people true made by people who seem to be not only gifted at what they do. But who are fans of what this is. Although I'm sure the fans drive you crazy with the questions that they have. So before we start. I just want to show you a clip. This was some of the people that were interviewed at the theater just wanting to talk to you can say. Guys so much. This movie was pretty incredible. I've seen in multiple times already. I gotta say it gets better every time. Thank you for making the movie. Inspired me to want to make films in the future. Maybe I'll become a movie director myself or something, and maybe I can be one of. Hankers? Thank you for bringing by childhood to life making. Thanks to the British resolve and other castes for the venues movie. It was really good things you so much. Movies. And I just really wanna see what happens next. And if you need extras in the movie just ask guys do make moral. Excelsior. Specialists feel good. That's why we make these movies. Yeah. You just have to. I think next. Oh, you should do. Check off. Yeah. We're headed that movie called cherry cherry based on a book by Nicole Walker about that army medic. Yeah. Back in this gets hooked on heroin to deal with PTSD. So slightly different subject matter than the marvel. Bo superpowers. No, no. It's amazing is Tom Holland. Yeah. We'll be playing the lead. So. Look, it's still family. Exactly. And that within ventures in game. What Tom and does in that. With rubber Downey's. Our man. Is so motion and so much that if you're not feeling that you you've lost all ability to feel anything. Well, the I mean, the great thing about Marvin. I think why so many people relate to is about family relationships. You know, there's there's mothers daughters, fathers and sons, you know, surrogates doesn't mean that people are related, it's just they they have a they've created a family. What we also like about it with amazing about seeing fans like this is that very rare as a storyteller, you get to make movies like this that mind people together, there's a real sense of community behind these films. The global reaches significance a fan in the UK can talk to a fan in India can talk to a fan in Japan. And it really is binding experience we snuck into the theater on the Thursday night that it opened in Los Angeles after the lights from the back. And it's rare that we've been in a movie theater where we've had that kind of experience people are cheering, and laughing and crying. And cheering some more and jumping on their seats and really had an energy to it that that seems very unique to to this narrative experiment, but when anything is emotional like that, and what you did last year with Infinity war you snapped your fingers at half of the world's gone that boy what a power move that was well, that's one of the one of the great joys of working in the marvel cinematic universe, and with a serialized, storytelling, the cinematic level is that we get to take chances, and we get to go to places in in individual films that you might not be able to otherwise, you know, it's it's very rare to see a Hollywood movie, especially a big major release Hollywood movie where the bad guy wins, but you know, life life is in life that sometimes the bad guy wins we'll have to endure that. So the to be able to tell a story where the bad guy wins in. It's okay for the audience because they know that even though the movie ended that way there's still hope for. In the future. Because the story is not over that. That's a very, you know, unusual experience unusual opera -tunities for filmmakers to tell that kind of story. Well, they can't seem to accept that. It's over. I think that's what you hear people saying I saw it three times. Right. You know, you're going back to it. I don't think not just to look at the nuances of what you might have missed, but I need to hold onto it. They can't really be gone. Well, nothing has value unless it has an ending, right? I think that why the, you know, there's so much energy around this movie is that it's a true. Finale. There's you know, the this isn't ending for for a number of the characters that people come to love the last. How do you decide in endgame who's gonna live and die who is going to survive? It's really based on an individual character level. Like, we just study each of the characters we think about, you know, our job on the movie our goal for this movie was to to end the end the run that began eleven years ago now with the first iron man movie. So we looked at. Every one of those characters we looked at their arc that they'd been on through all of the films, and we just started to think about what was the most satisfying climax for each of those characters individual level. And then we began to see how it all sort of orchestrated together with one another. But that was our road. It wasn't. There was never a mandate from marvel about somebody had a live or somebody had the die. It was simply what is the most satisfying story. We can tell. Yeah. I would think that marvel and Kevin Feigen everybody would say they would be betting every decision. That's being made about this. Because these are characters that live in everybody's heads and hearts, well, when we came into marvel it was with the spirit of this Rupp shin. And if you are previous work was very disruptive work, arrested development is very cynical sitcom comedy that was on communities deconstruct genre. That was sort of the specialty of that show. And then you know, we started at a point marvel they had already built the first acts of this Infinity saga. We came into the second act when he Tricia so to deconstruct, and we started making really disruptive choices and they got excited by that. Because choices were working. And I think that, you know, we're we're at a moment of transition for narrative, we really are this generation that is coming up consumes narrative and a very different way than we do there used to consuming narrative, and you know, thirty seconds on Twitter, ten minutes on YouTube, the watch it on the bus. They'll watch it in school. They'll watch it on a plane. The watching the bathroom, you know, they they have a different PHD content consumption. They can handle the different level density. Then we can they want to realize storytelling because they like that emotional collectively. And also with that's your life, storytelling gives them is conversation. Long-term conversation that they can have over a decade about how much they love characters. Who you know, who's right and who's wrong who's gonna live who's going to die? And you know, so social media's become a real driver for pop culture when you think back on endgame. What are like three or four things that stick in your mind about the making of it? You know, what you without giving away too much? Although we'll give away some things we don't want to give away or spoil the just in terms of shooting and thinking he said, and then watching the emotional moments, and what's nice about the film is that because we made such a radical choice the enemy in the war. We open the film, and it stays in a very somber tone for about thirty or forty minutes, which again is unique for commercial movie, and we referred to it as the section where you know, people have to take their medicine. This is you know, we're gonna we're we're going to swim in the waters of of pain and regret and guilt. That all of these characters feel about what happened and that's unique. And I think that you know, so that that's that to me was very memorable being able to shoot scenes that you know, was with emotional truth to them. You know, we love when Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans get to work together. They're very they're very elegant together and understated. So they had a really beautiful senior early in the movie, I think the other thing will remember Robert Downey. This is really, you know, this is one of the most iconic characters and pop culture history. You know, I would I would argue movie history. I mean, you know, I don't think anyone would argue. With you about that. Which is why playing with any? I mean because the amazing thing about iron man is that he such in the beginning of all this such a cynic such. It's all about me. Yeah. Until he sell field to some kind of self sacrifice. Right. That's exactly because that he goes from selfish to selfless over this this ten year journey, and he makes a lot of poor decisions along the way makes a lot of good decisions along the way. It's not a very human decisions along the way. And I think that you know, the audience went on a ride with them. And it's a it's a very profound experience for them. What you said, I think that's why even though he dies in this movie, and his this this beloved character is is now leaving the movies because it's the completion of this ark for this character because it sort of a movement from selfishness to the ultimate act of selflessness and self sacrifice in the he's giving up a lot by making this choices wife daughter who are so important to them. There is sort of like, a beauty, and there's a nobility and an
