Thirteen Awards Movies to Watch Out for, Oscar Do-Overs, and More From the Mailbag
"Before we get into the mail couple things over the weekend hit in the world of movies. First thing i want to talk to you about is the thing. I spoke to the directors of this documentary series about which is tiger tiger woods. Now you know as a friend of mine and podcast partner that. I am an avid golfer. And a fan of the sport gulf you are not a fan of the sport golf though your partner is and so golf is in your life but not truly of your life. What do you know about tiger woods. And what were you expecting heading into this documentary. Well in addition to being one of the greatest golfers in history isn't in history and certainly one of the best athletes of the twenty first century. That the correct century yes which i do know about because athletes at that level become pop cultural figures and i am interested in pop culture. Even if i'm not interested in my husband lecturing me about what type of iron tiger woods is using which is like a personal hell that i live in on a daily basis so i know a lot about him as a pop culture athlete and then obviously he has a pop cultural significance all of his own because of the events that he went through in the public eye at the end of the last decade and really honest life for the last decade. Yeah and so. I think that this series is an interesting gambit on. Hbo part it's clearly inspired slash based on a book that came out in two thousand eighteen by jeff benedict and armond katayan. And it's an attempt to make sense in real time of probably the most significant american athlete barring lebron james and michael jordan i would say of the last twenty. Five years maybe serena williams in that conversation. I think it's a very short list of people that do for. The tiger is kind of hanging with in the last quarter century and the film is tricky. Because they only aired part one thus far part two is next sunday and so i don't think you can necessarily spoiler film like this but it depends on. What kind of your you are if you're very engaged in the tiger woods story and his life. I don't think that this film necessarily will teach you a lot about the events of his life. There are not a lot of revelations. I think there are some emotional revelations there are some there's some I guess the matic framing that. Maybe you wouldn't necessarily put together if you weren't deeply entrenched in his story the movie especially the first half of the movie takes great pains to portray this father and son story and to show earl woods. Father as the kind of dr frankenstein at and making tiger woods into this kind of frankenstein monster for better and for worse in that he's incredibly powerful but there's like all kinds of emotional danger in his life I one thing that struck me as i re watched part one last night and i watched it with eileen. It's there's a lot of golf highlights in the first half. And there's there's there's not. There's not a lot of scandal there's not a lot of there is some psychology and there is a lot of sort of personal background about how tiger grew up and who he became. But because he has this sort of monochromatic mono-syllabic experience in the world where we just. He very rarely showed himself to us. Basically what you get is like ninety minutes of an extraordinary highlight reel dovetailing with the story of a father and a son and what they mean to each other. And i think if you're a casual observer my my instinct was. Is this going to work for people now. The second half is different. Can of worms. And i don't wanna spoil it for people but did in the first half. Did you find yourself having a hard time entering the story. I did also watch this with my husband. The aforementioned gulf maniac and the soundtrack to watching this was every time golf shot would be show. Its accuracy like you know it was like a little gallery of one. And he was doing it under his breath and then i was kinda. Are you aware that this is happening. And he was like sorry and then he just kept doing it at a lower volume. I have to say when you show golf. As just a highlight reel. Tiger woods is most incredible shots way. More interesting to me personally than the stuff that you guys have on the tv on sunday afternoon which is so boric. My guys pretty. Good a golf so i enjoyed it in that sense i agree with you that maybe it's not that i had a hard time. It and another interesting thing is that i. I do think if you know even a little bit about tiger woods you kind of know about the earl woods character and that is a pretty established part of his pop culture story. It's a big dad. Big character looming. Dad figure familiar sports figure in show bizz figure for sure and Greatness and then the fall. That's kind of what you know. And as as you mentioned there's a fall there there is a part to we won't spoil all of it but if you are watching this documentary you probably have some idea of what's going to happen in part to and the even najah it at the very end of part one which is the very last shot is a very famous woman. Just sidling up to the camera. I that's that's great filmmaking. And i think when the documentary is leaning in to that winning in that side of the story because it it leans into all the aspects of the story but when it goes for that bit of flair and narrative tension is is when it succeeds

Rita Ora sorry for birthday party that broke lockdown rules
"Now for some breaking news. Was she wary. Where was she seen she posted. Why on instagram. Who clean gone too long pause. What's rita ora up to. Who is this woman. We've never done this before we've never opened with what's read or up switching the order of the show were doing top down instead of bottom up. No we're doing bottom up top down bottom up and as we've said a few times in the past month or so rita's back to normal. You know the world isn't back to normal but reed is back to normal. Were sitting about it and yet now i'm like regret now like we jumped the thrill she was getting. We were thrilled. That she was getting The same number of headlines that she used to get however we didn't want her to get these types of headlines. Oh no this is very bad. So celebrated bad parts. Don't throw your own bad party. It's funny because when. When i saw that she was turning thirty i felt a little pang of leg odds tube-like turning thirty like this time like that's that's more rain could feel bad. Yeah for somebody who loves to party. She loves to party but she something happened here. And she's now in a lotta deep water. She's on the cover of the sun so when she turned thirty. This is what we thought on. Saturday night was at saturday night. That her she posted at thirtieth birthday video that her team made her. Were all these important people in her. Life mcwhirter happy birthday. Big jazz. host of it was just so many people i mean. It's dozens of pete. That's what we thought we were going to be talking about today. That's exactly what o our michael caine star studded video incredible. Here's who's in it. We identified a lot of these people even though it was very difficult and then and then this happened sunday night. We'll saturday night. saturday night. Rada had a birthday party that was like a fake up or they. So i think that a lot of people are doing this and this is not just celebrities. This is normal people. They're showing the world one thing on instagram than they're doing something entirely different offense to graham serena showed me beth so rita showed a thirtieth birthday party that was very small and cute in her apartment in her flat. There were balloons on the ceiling. She watched the video. You could tell there. Were a couple other voices in there. She showed this big spread of desserts and it was like look at this cake. I'm gonna eat it all by myself. Ha ha ha. So it's very like this is how i'm celebrating in these times. But she also had a thirtieth birthday party at a fancy restaurant in notting hill. Yeah and it looks like she just hossack rented the space definitely because there were people bringing in liquor and ice and so it looks like she just rented the space and had over thirty people. And it's apparently against the law to even have like more than one person outside of your household and there are more. Their lockdown laws are more We have some to here. But there's more and they're more will get you your name. They're more like actually taking this seriously but also like they should take rita ora doing this more seriously than anyone because again. She's a public figure. And this shit's going to get photographed. What i'm confused about. And i wonder what you think is like. Did somebody call the paparazzi. Like who how. What's the deal with that like. There were lots of photos or photos of the cops getting there and being like What's going on in here. You know like literally. They had photos of the whole shebang. People going in people going out. Rita going in rena going out and i just wonder like for rita we've already said like. Oh you know. She calls the paparazzi. But like you wouldn't call the paparazzi on your own like a legal birthday when you're doing something like flagrantly illegal but this dead. Maybe not someone whether it was someone at the restaurant a neighbor because it doesn't look like these people they're like they're actually sneaking and they're going back doors like it doesn't look like they wanted anywhere right there and also looks it also looks late as hell like it doesn't look. It doesn't look just like nighttime. It looks like it's late really fucking stupid like i. Not that. I want people to like you know flout these rules or whatever but it just looks. They did it. The stupidest way that i could imagine doing this type of kind of activity Are photos all over the son of like police officer showing up in peering into windows. They're blurry paparazzi time photos of her sister and that guy vast morgan showing up with arm. Loads of prospero tequila articulate brand. Poppy delevingne kara levin. A lot of people. I can't recognize among the thirty so if we have photos of those we have photos of the people people knew you know but there are twenty eight other people who weren't photograph because i guess they weren't important enough to be photographed. Her hat to have photographs. Patty love to identify those people. So according to the loss this is what it says in the guardian england's national lockdown which ends on tuesday which is like ria you could of waited it's against the law to meet more than person you do not live with acceptance specific circumstances. Police have the power to break up gatherings issue fines of up to ten thousand pounds for breaches of regulations so she just voluntarily pay according to the sun this morning. She just voluntarily paid ten thousand pounds. She was like you know what. Here's the money police. Stay away from me. I'm so sorry alone. She's on the cover of the sun with a mask on in a big firm furnish coat that says read a party. Cheater was a really good. That was a really good line in the sun that said bang out of ora. Rita ora slammed she flouts lockdown laws. With thirty thousand. I was like bang out of something. Must be a british slang and it is. It's bang out of order which means someone is like acting a mess acting fool. You're being unreasonable. Your bang out of order posted a apology already on instagram winch. Is you know she said hello. I attended a small gathering with you through the gathering rita. You through the party. It was it was a spur of the moment decision. No it wasn't. It was a party that you through a birthday party made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown. This would be okay. You were but few days later. Sorry i've commentary for all this. I'm deeply sorry raking the rules and intern understand that. This put people at risk. This was a serious inexcusable. Error of judgement given the restrictions. I realize how responsibilities actions and i take full responsibility. I feel particularly embarrassed knowing firsthand. How hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to help. Keep us all safe. Even though. this won't make it right. I want to sincerely apologize.

The greatest footballer of all time at the age of sixty upwards of a million people are expected to pay their respects kosovo's on the presidential palace in buenos aires his monocle. Twenty four obituary away from the outside. But you're legion for dead outside for dead epoch. whatever he did look like. It wasn't a footballer. He was short about five foot. Five and stocky. He seemed as wide as he was told. If you had to guess which field of athletics he would succeed in. It might be weightlifting or wrestling if you met him. This opinion might well be reinforced in no realm. Did he seem at home. With as or graces diego armando murder donahue was born on october thirtieth nineteen sixty in la news just south of buenos iras. His childhood was spent in the shantytown of via we to on the argentine capital's outskirts. He was spotted early. He was fifteen when he made his premier division debut in nineteen seventy six. He was sixteen the first time he wore the blue and white stripes of argentina in nineteen seventy seven though he was omitted from the argentina side. Which won the world cup at home in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. He became the world's most expensive footballer in one thousand nine hundred eighty two moving to barcelona after starring in that year's world cup in spain. Barcelona knew what they were getting despite aggressive. If not brutal man-marking maradonna was magnificent. But he had his limits against brazil. Argentina's caused lost. He was sent off for a foul which appeared calculated to cut brazilian defender. Battista in tune. Things did not go well at barcelona. Maradonna was ill injured eventually dumped after just two seasons following his ignition of an almighty brawl in the one thousand nine hundred four. Copa del rey. Final against athletic.

He led an ordinary team to extraordinary success to sarah titles are copper italia and uefa cup among others in naples municipal mythology he was regarded as something not far short of godlike. Many are today's neapolitans. born around. That time named diego or diego maradonna also became friendly with certain well known members of the local business community was banned for fifteen months after failing or cocaine test. And slunk away in disgrace. Maradona's jekyll and his hide will always be most famously illustrated by the events of june twenty second nineteen ninety-six at estadio azteca in mexico city. It was a world cup quarter-final so the stakes were plenty high enough anyway. But argentina were playing england. It was four years and eight days. Since argentine forces had surrendered to the british army in the falklands agentina. Tina regarded this game as a rematch argentina. One to one and maradona scored both goals very arguably the two most famous goals of all time. The i was also one of the most outrageous acts of chicanery in sporting history unable to propel himself high enough to get his foreign on miscued clearance by. England's steve hodge. Maradona raised a fist and smack the ball past oncoming england goalkeeper. peter shilton. the ball came back off off neighborhoods argentina a protesting reverie everybody sore but the referee possibly seeking to rub it in maradona later. Slowly credited the goal to a combination of his own head and the hand of god. Four minutes later. Maradonna received a pass inside. Argentina's half then headed for goal both bolting and gliding bewitching and bewildering to bids xlii to read terry butcher and terry fenwick before slotting the enchanted ball past scholten debate about that gulf football possibly seeking to rub that in as well maradonna later. Thank the england players for their gallantry. Less men he suggested would simply kicked him up in the air. It is difficult to believe that this thought did not occur to them. Agentina one thousand nine hundred eighty six world cup. Thanks largely to a dominant performance by their diminutive. Talisman maradonna verged at this point on the supernatural too. The rest of maradona's career played out to the same chorus of astonished applause and resigned. Soy's in nineteen ninety. He very nearly one argentina. Another world cup in one thousand nine hundred four. He was sent home early after failing a drug test. A few more seasons fading football followed then a career. Coaching at clubs of whom few had heard before maradona's turned up to manage them usually briefly.

The Queen's Gambit (Netflix Mini-Series 2020)
"Still in their top five I remember correctly. Is the queen's gambit. It was number one don't know where it is. Right now. I still think it's the number one show streaming right now on the streamer, but it is about the orphan who becomes A chess Phanom. And she learns chess from the maintenance man downstairs in the orphanage and her life. Just kind of goes from there, and I'm keeping it purposely broad, cause I so want you and I've been I've been guilty of Oversharing and I want to I want you guys to Kind of unfold the show for yourself because that's that's part of the magic of it, because it's so gosh darn good. We talked about it last week. Alexis is back and you watched it a cz. Well, I watched everything. Jeez, I could not stop watching it. And they binged it in four days. Completely just watched the whole thing. It's about what we did. Yeah, I'm with you. Oh, man. It is so good. Now I don't know much about chess. So I think that if you do love chess, you'll even get more in terms of the moves because they really had a really cool way of showing how they do it with the shadows of the ponds and the different You know pieces and then the boards. You know how they do the different moves. And what did the bishop do? And you know all of that, And there's all of these different ways to come at it. You know, different theories and thiss guy does it this way, and he always moves this first and so That was kind of lost on me. But it just It was such a great story and a great reminder that if you want to be the best at what you dio, it takes a lot of hard work a lot of dedication. And also trying around it. Right and remembering the people around. You mean I think about LeBron James and Michael Jordan. Serena Williams. Now, of course, this is in the sports world. Tom Brady, You know, like you are a goat. You really do need to work. You know, they're not out partying and having fun, And that's kind of the same case with the in the Queen's gambit, she Beth. She's just really focused on her goal of being the best chess player. I love that she didn't really focus on her gender, but the media did. And but it's still a hard world to be in when it's all it's all men like, generally older sixties in the fifties and sixties, So you know at the time it's during the Cold War. There's already tensions between the U. S and the Soviet Union already at that time, and then the best chess players come from the Soviet Union. So it was really reflective of the time to mean just in a chess game, So I really like that. I like the full circle aspect of the story toward the end. Again. I don't want to give too much away like you, said Jace. But itjust they answer a lot of questions that you may have as you're watching it and satisfying answers. I see what Yeah, yeah. Don. Where are you? I am just finished Episode four They're going to attack a lot into each episode, though. I mean, even by the end of the first one, you're like, Whoa. This is like a full movie. I just watched her. That's so true, Don. Yeah. In the anime pack a lot in. I mean so much. It's like the opposite of what they did with blind manner, not enough material that they snatched into. Ah, really long boring. Story That was way too many episodes. This is very efficient and I love the writing. You get to know her and what she's all about, Really? Not necessarily through the dialogue, but what they show you. Yes. Great writing, Thie. Other thing. It's the fashion one. Everything she wore. This will be nominated for costume design. Don't you think? Absolutely, without a doubt, the production design and the wardrobe. They're They're co stars. They're they're absolute co stars, and she carries it. She carries it so well, those clothes you know that old saying the the clothes don't wear you. You wear the clothes. She wears those clothes girl. I mean, she capital. W wears out, though, that wardrobe and Well, I just want to be her and Lex. I don't know if you felt this way, said this to dawn last week in the most complimentary way possible. I was sad. I was sad at the conclusion not because of the conclusion, but because I wanted more time with Beth, I interesting. I don't often have that reaction to characters. Um, you know, like Star Wars. I just, You know, I want to hang out with Ray and I want to know what's happening and all that stuff. But I really I'm sad that I'm not going to be invited in her world anymore. Well, that's what I was going to ask you because it does look like maybe a season two is in the works. Really? Yeah. There at least floating the idea around what it could be. Will they bring it back for a second season s wires asking that and It's not renewed. Of course, there's no news about that. But this next season would dive into her love life, her family history, that type of thing. I had the opposite reaction. I feel like this miniseries. It was perfect. In the way that they told it. I don't know if I need to know more. I love I love how it ended, and just That's great. Yeah, I'm not saying I want it because they'll mess it up, right? That's what I'm worried about. Yeah, I It's like big little lives. You know, the first was based on a book and that was near perfect. And then you went back, and you basically forced the author to create another story in a short amount of time. And you know, it wasn't a natural process. You gave the A writer. A hard deadline. I don't think you know. Not all. Not all creatives work well with that s O this. Yeah, but I was Muchas. I'm sad for that desire to him, Not with her. I would rather have that than an unsatisfying Sequel Hard to beat that this is Yeah, because this is just a compliment. I I miss her. I want to know what she's doing, but I'll rely on my imagination for that, and I'm fine. It's just It's just a huge compliment to the writer of the novel into the two the creatives behind this miniseries. They did such a good job that they made me want, Maura and that Whatmore could you ask for with a creative endeavor? You know Jerry Seinfeld, No one to get off the stage. They're off the stage and I miss her because she's so freaking cool. I want to have with her. I want her to be my friend. And then I want to steal all of her clothes. Be nude. That's not nice. Other things, didn't you guys? Yeah, No kidding. Just gorgeous. Benny Watts. The character who the guy who plays many Watts, Thomas Brody Stang stur. Yeah, He's that kid from love, Actually, Yeah. Grew up guys. He looks exactly the same thing just looks like someone pulled them from his head. Hold his legs and to stretch them a little bit. Was he also in finding Neverland with Johnny Depp? Yes, I think so. The writer of Peter Pan. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but it just looks like someone stretched him. You had put a mustache auto. And then the other kid is from Harry Potter. Yes, friend of her selling. Is Perry's cousin, His awful cousin that he lives with. Yeah, deadly Douglas. Yeah, and he's the other person and I just like I said this to dawn. I just like that the old you know, one of the themes that I realized after the fact is really about loneliness, you know, Beth the character and we're talking queen's gambit as we wrap it up here on Netflix. You know, it's a great lesson where sometimes you just see what's right in front of your face. And Beth did that. Beth was guilty of thinking that she was very alone. She was on ly kind of looking within just a few inches of her face. But if she just looked around She just looked a little bit to her left and right. She realized she really wasn't alone. And I think that's a good universal lesson for all of us that sometimes when we do feel very isolated and alone where we really are not, itjust takes Takes a moment to look around.

Women have been disproportionately impacted by covid-19
"Been disproportionately impacted by the job losses during the pandemic to the point that some are referring to today's recession as a she session. Many of the pressures women already face in the work force, such as the gender pay gap barriers to advance. Men and lack of flexibility have been exacerbated. The crisis could, however, usher and new policy standards and support systems for women across industries and income levels. Here with me to talk about all this is Alexis Crib. Covic, senior partner with McKinsey and co author of Women in the Workplace. 2020 report. Welcome to the program. Alexis Crisco, Vic Chris. Covic. I'm sorry. I'm getting that right. Thank you for having me and we also have in helicopters. Litwin, clinical psychologist and founder of Latinos Think Big a network of professional women and Lumina. Modern psychotherapy practice. Welcome in helicopters. Littwin. Thank you. And Serena Khan, chief executive officer of Women's Foundation of California. Welcome to the program. Serena Con. Thanks so much, and Alexis Krukov itch. I'd like to start with you and some of what the McKinsey Workforce study told us. Why are women facing greater job loss than men? And where are we seeing the biggest impacts? Salute Lee. So the headline here is that we're facing a crossroads in corporate America today, and the reason for that is on one side this pandemic while a humanitarian crisis at its heart has created An opening for flexible work, and that's a good thing because that's the number one thing. Women have said. In the past, they need to advance more in the workplace environment. On the flip side, one in four women today is saying because of the pandemic and the context it's creating in their workplace environment and their home environment. They may need to step back or step out of the workforce. And one and four equates to two million women that would unwind years of progress of women's advancement in the workplace. And it's just something we can't afford to lose. And we're really seeing the gendered nature of work here to right Serena Khan, not only where Caretaking responsibilities end up falling when push comes to shove, but also who falls into this essential worker category and the disproportionate impact on black and brown women's who We're looking at a really layered intersectional issue here. That's exactly right. All of us are being impacted by the pandemic, but we're not all being impacted in the same way. Oh, the gendered impact of the pandemic are particularly profound for especially women of color working moms, gender non conforming folks this pandemic. Highlighting problems that we've needed to work on together to solve three the pandemic, So we know, for example in California. Freak O bed, two thirds of tipped workers, part time workers, minimum wage earners where women and primarily women of color even though California Is the wealthy of state in the nation. It's also has the highest rate of poverty and the people who are living in poverty in California are women of color and their kids. And so when we think about this pandemic, whether It's women who are the essential workers who are making up 80% of our healthcare workforce, or the retail and grocery workers. The essential workers that Are still working or on the flip side. They're the ones that have lost their jobs because the majority of us are working in the restaurant industry. Oh, our other retail industry that have lost significant Numbers of jobs, so it's a very gendered epidemic and Serena Con you've spoken about how there's no going back to normal that that normal wasn't that good to begin with, when it came to gender equity in the workforce. That's right. You know, this pandemic is shining a light on all that was wrong with Our country, our world, our state, and so you know, as hundreds of thousands of women leave the workforce to manage what is really an unmanageable amounts of caretaking remote schooling. You know, our child care costs were making up. Ah, upwards of, you know, 60 70% of the single moms income that's not sustainable and So you know, we have an opportunity here to think about what is the future that we want on. DWI can change some of those systems that we have an opportunity to really Think about care, work into value care and compensate that work fairly as we figure out howto move forward, But the pandemic has really forced us to reckon with how much care we all need, whether we're caring for our Children. For each other for ourselves for our elders on DH so we can build some new solutions for us that the women Foundation California we have believed Since our founding in 1979 that people who are closest to the problems in their communities are also closest to the solutions. And so we have innovative ideas coming out of community. Based leaders about what we can do post pandemics. I think it's important for us now, Tio You know, make sure that people are getting their basic needs met. So you know, one of the other things that we saw very early on in the pandemic is that not everybody was safer at home. That rates of domestic violence were spiking upwards of 40 to 80% and all of California 58 counties. So we and yet so as the need went up the Situation for the shelters was that they had to that They had actually left physical space because of the need to do physical distance event. Soon, though, there's a lot that Yeah, so there's just a lot that we're seeing and that we can think about solving. Yes,
Who was Sirimavo Bandaranaike
"Today. We're talking about the world's first woman to lead as a prime minister. She defied all expectations to take her position and permanently changed the legacy of her country. Let's talk about CD Malvo Nike. CD Malvo Bundle Nike was born city map rap lot on April Seventeenth nineteen sixteen, and what was then known as the country of Salen. She was the eldest of six siblings. Both her father and mother were prominent in the Sinhalese community. That's an ethnic group that forms the majority of the population of Modern Day Sri Lanka at the time saline was a British colony. Cassation many of the top families in the country took on governmental roles and British names even said, he must father Barnes rat watt was named after prominent British general nonetheless, city must family care deeply about remaining Buddhist and preserving Sinhalese culture wherever they cut when city matern eight her parents sent her to a Convent Boarding School in Colombo the nation's capital under the British colonial rule. This was the best possible option for education. Still, her parents also took care to maintain their cultural traditions native language. When city finish her education she spent years touring the country doing social work including delivering food and medicine. She hiked through jungles and rough terrain to help organize and develop Bilas as a result, she gained a positive reputation throughout the island. In nineteen forty city my married a top government official named Solomon West Ridgeway Dias. Bandaranaike in a grand high profile wedding. The two were considered a perfect match. While city must husband played a more anglicized role in the colonial government city, my herself understood the needs of those living in rural areas. Said Ema, and Solomon had three children. Initially said he must professional role was largely that of an attentive wife. I nineteen forty-eight Salen was headed towards independence from Britain and city Mos home was packed to the brim with her husband's political associates, discussing strategy and the future of the country Solomon viewed his wife's role as a submissive one. Still she became a valuable political consultant. She was the one who convinced him to resigned his political position in nineteen fifty one. After he resigned he created the Sri Lankan Freedom Party or S L F R, which sought Sinhalese control of the country and a democratic socialist government city. Ma. Aggressively campaigned for Solomon in the following years and by nineteen fifty six, he won by a landslide and started instituting left wing and Sinhalese centered policies despite this victory, some of Solomon's political action. So divisions and tensions between salons various ethnic groups including the Tamil people in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, he was murdered in his own private garden. City Mo was devastated even so she took action to fight for her husband's legacy. The very next year sitting you took leadership of the Party and was voted in as the world's first woman prime minister she would serve as the leader of the SFR for the following forty years. City must served as prime minister on and off over the next few decades prioritizing the same democratic socialist policies as her husband, she strived to raise the quality of life of her people and to reduce the overall inequality in her country. Following a win in the nineteen seventy election city. Ma introduced a new constitution that ended salon status as a British Commonwealth realm and renamed the country. Sri Lanka. Her focus on empowering Buddhism and the Sinhalese people alienated the Tummy people during one term in power. An uprising against her party had to be defeated with international military aid from India and Pakistan in the nineteen eighties. Economic troubles in the country accusations of corruption led to a crushing political loss by nineteen eighty-three tensions between the Tamil and the majority Sinhalese people boiled over into a bloody civil war that lasted until two thousand nine. Sumita attempted to repair the damage caused by discrimination against the Tamil but the divide was severe and her political power was waning along with her popularity by nineteen ninety, four city Mas Daughter Chandrika became prime minister, and then later the president of the Country Chandrika appointed her mother as prime minister but by then the constitution had changed. So the prime minister position was only supplementary to the role of the president offering little actual power. Serena remained in some form of office until a few months before her death she passed away on election day shortly after casting her vote at the age of eighty four. Though city Malvo's political legacy is complicated. She paved the way for future female heads of state and lead through political hardships with strength.

Over to Santa Court now the Williams match Venus, Williams and Serena Williams. About to start their match. The match starts out close and the first set goes to a tie-break at six games all. The sisters are playing as competitively as any time. Their father let them face off against each other incompetent. He rarely turned them against each other, and this set is showing why as they exchanged groundstrokes in heated baseline rallies? They're blistering strokes. Make it obvious that they want to bury each other on each shot. They both hit the ball harder than basically. Any other woman has on this court, and they can run down each other's powerful shots more quickly than anyone else can as well. The ball is a blur going back and forth and sewer. They're white sneakers as they flash from one baseline corner to the other. The sisters are style, the like in white dresses white beads, but it's Venus.

The court at Serena's is for the first time since they took the court, nothing makes her happier than winning a match at a grand. Slam but nothing makes her sadder than seeing Serena lose. For a brief second. She wonders if this is worth it. If beating the entire world is worth having to also beat her sister. The match ends when Serena Nets a backhand. The crowd erupts, but Venus isn't sure how to feel. She extends a hand at the net like she would to any competitor, but then puts her arm around Serena to console her like a sister. Part only briefly to shake hands with the umpire, and then Serena reaches back for Venus and she suddenly smiling. Let's take a bow. Serena says and Venus agrees relieved. She hasn't broken her little sister's heart. Hand like Broadway Stars after a successful opening night, Venus and Serena how to the crowd as the crowd roars. Finally Miles from. Soon after Venus speaks to the media, it was weird. I guess it was weird all day. Place Arena. But. I don't know this is kind of you. Don't want it to happen this way. We're GONNA make a pact number one number two, so we only meet missiles won't care because really for the title.

He grabs the Mike and holds on tight, and then he sounds off on a wide variety of topics including what he claims is his multimillion dollar business. He points to his hat embroidered with the logo of Williams and Williams. He says his company will start publishing cartoons. It's also a charter bus company. He adds and do some work with mortgages. Reporters then turn the conversation to the real business at hand Richards prediction for the head to head matchup between his daughters the second time they've played ever and the first time they've faced each other in a tournament final. Richard knows that Serena always has an edge to her. He knows she'll be the better tennis player eventually, and the reason is simple. Serena is just flat out meaner. One time, a friend of Richard's had gifted ceramic piggy banks to Venus Serena and there are other three sisters in the House Serena accidentally brokers. So, what did she do? She broke the other for piggybanks to. If, she couldn't have one. Nobody else could either. Richard thinks back on the story reflecting on what it means for Serena's future. He's positive show fight hard and do whatever it takes to win more trophies than Venus, and he knows she'll get there eventually. But today in their first final Richard knows. It's Venus's to win. Head to head. It's still Venus who has the clear edge. She won both of their head to head matches in nineteen, ninety eight. And now as the match is well under way down the court, Venus seems in control even with the score tight. They split the first two sets, but behind better, serving and fewer mistakes. Venus takes the third set six four to defend her title. And she improves to a perfect three zero over her little sister. We, have it. Six four in the third Venus Williams over her younger sister Serena. Gray effort by both players. It's a hug from a big sister there. What a great moment! Wow. Family yes, very much so. It wasn't the highest quality tennis that we've seen all week from either one of them, but.

Show when Jennifer Capriati when the French Open title, the rest of that year was dominated by Venus Williams. Who Won Wimbledon and the US Open beating Serena in the final? What has happened so far in two thousand and two Matt Well Jennifer kept `priority has defended her Australian Open title a tournament which Serena had to miss through injury and Venus Williams loss of the first ever to Monica salish. still whenever I see that Monica was still going strong in two thousand and two. That always kind of amazes me. Yes? Then they get on the hull courts and Serena really starts dominating. She doesn't actually she doesn't actually lose. A match competed national hard court in two thousand and two to start the season both sisters. Boycott Indian Wells for the first time following the racists incident in two thousand and one. That's a boycott that would go on until Twenty fifteen for Serena Twenty sixteen for Venus. And, then Serena gets her first tore level where against Venus in the Miami semifinals, six two six two and then announces a South was one of the favorites full the French, open by winning Rome beating Justyna non Jennifer Cat `priority so. That definitely you know. Venus is obviously dominated the before Serena's now really becoming a force Worth I'm actually wrote that they were threatening to tiger is. I think that being in terms of what tiger woods was doing. Ingolf at that stage just become such a dominant force and they were the they were. They were the driving force in the game. They were the biggest stoves, the biggest stories getting the biggest crowds and actually align i. read his that. Talks of combining the tools though bit like we've been talking about recently with this with this merger idea, but it was very much. Kind of the pay and coaching the Women's tool to relocate Ponte Vedra where they had their head offices and. Thinking that, it made sense for the ATP. Jomo thumbs alliant.

Breathlessly covered this and even had an op-ed by Billie Jean King. What I was comforted by where the comments sections by a lot of people who said, look, even people who are very, they say, staunchly feminist. This is not the hill to die on because really, you can't blame anybody else for breaking your racquet thoughts Javy oh, well, I know on I want I want your thoughts on this. What do I know I anti Serena? Yes. No, no, no, no. No, you can't. You can't say, oh, well, you know, she should be allowed to sock. I know that it's really a conundrum on the one hand three. On the other hand, the Japanese player, what am I supposed to do? But no, they it's just you can't excuse that bad and it's not a first time when things don't go her way. As we all know, then she loses her temper other our players loser temper. Yeah, that's an excusable to, okay, it's bad all across the board. But once she Brooke racket, you can't go back from that. And you can't say, oh, I'm not going to penalize you appoint was at a point at that point, not a game. It was the point. That was the point was the gay. The thief, and. Okay, so go ahead JBL but I've, I'm in sunny. What are? Where are you on on all of this? You pro- Serena anti Serena, miss official. Anti official. I am. I'm pro official in the sense that he. His calls were all technically correct. I probably would have eaten the whistle on the metoo on the euro thief line to the final. The final final day I wouldn't have. I wouldn't have penalized her a game. I don't think it's, you have to penalize a report after she smashes the racket Ryan. The the euro thief is, is the sort of judgment call that I think that a professional empire has to kind of is the sort of abuse that a professional empire has to live with on this sort of thing, but, but also I think she was, I think it was totally fair to penalize her the game because like demanding an apology on the court in front of everyone in in in such a demeaning way is like, is you can't. You can't emasculate the official like that. You just can't do it question. The game penalty since I didn't see the game was in a critical game was at an answer of game break game, or was it like you know, four one, two, five one? Or what was his Jewish? I forget she going down. It was raining that she was not likely. No, actually not going to win. This was not. I believe that what the tipping point bear was was not the euro thief, but the the professional threat of you're never going to call one of my matches again. Which is essentially threatening the guys livelihood. I mean that is a that is the the the tennis version of you'll never eat lunch in this town again, am which is I think the no, which is there's a difference between saying you're a jackass, you're cursing them out all of that and then making professional threats against somebody's career man, which is which is the thing I, I don't know. I'm just anti. I, I'm weirded out by the way people rushed out to die on this hill, and I didn't really, really quick. I mean, Serena has become in a weird way her own like cost of leber. Yeah. I mean, she's she's just like it is like the Senate live beyond, say, joke where everybody has to love surreal. You can't not love Serena, and I understand why it's not permissible to hold two thoughts in your your head at the same time. The first is that she is probably the greatest women's player ever and that she has, sir. Certainly she is American tennis and has been the face and foundation of American tennis for an decade. Now all by herself, the most important figure in American Dennis, and that, but then also a, yeah..

I'm gonna just give the back story. Let's get out of the way at the top for those that didn't see it or hear it on Saturday. In the second sat Rama's the chair umpire issued a code violation to Serena Williams. It's basically a warning forgetting illegal coaching because he thought her coach, Patrick Moore glue was giving her hand signals from the stands a few games after that Williams smashed her. Racket an annoyance. This was separate. It wasn't because of the accusation of coaching. She was pissed off that she lost. She lost a game in the second set. So she smashes her racket. She's given a second code violation. The penalty for a second violation is a point penalty. Williams was less upset about that penalty than about the insinuation that she and her toge had been cheating. So back to that, I filed Asian a, here's what she said to Rama's. I didn't get coaching. You need to take. You need to make an announcement that I didn't get coaching. I don't cheat. I didn't get coaching. You too. Advocating not lie. A daughter dad was ever..

"They asked if they stepped into Charlotte, of course she would, you know? So for the the French Open to say that her uniform was disrespectful. And they need to change it. You know, it does feel like a slap in the face 'cause I can't again, I know people watch it. 'cause it's iconic. I bet you. They felt insulted the whole time. You know like she how dare she, her sister always been outside of this to this very white, very elitist sport of tennis, you know, and they always let people know they still black. Yeah, always always in the, I think the thing that first-rate mean about Venus and Serena, like like them, right. Both of them girls. Is well, we'll women, but, but you know, since they've been girls for me is that I am. I, I love Serena Williams in Maine is like I love Tiger Woods only watch when they playing day plan. I ain't watching and there's just that simple to me. Yeah, but you know what, though and is not. Got out of the way I'm in the same category because Tigers a fucking cone. Yes. The is like has never say anything. I just want to say beyond even what you think and I hate to cut you out beyond even what you're saying, Serena's even higher on the level. Yes, she is. She is. But but but I said that for the fact that I know that I am not the only one that tunes into tennis when she's there, right? Your writings are higher because she's there. Then I tiger booze say with the puck, you won't say Tagliabue's is kind of winning again. So against what you motherfucking ratings went up. So in this small, so funny is that. Kind of like Tiger Woods Venus standards for women. Women get paid more to had to show her ass when she came back and was like, look bitch when people have kids and maternity leave, you can strip. They rake in like a lot of these white women who probably spitting her goddamn face. She has passed Lau to benefit them. She got everybody pay more. She gets more revenue share like she got the win more revenue share the the women's tournament get sold out before the men's tournament. At the biggest finals. You know, she's doing all this shit for a game that actually bet they don't want her there and that constantly told her that you test Tom on anybody else. You got this other bitch over here that was not insured, putt knows and doing everything she could to be her got suspended. You know, but you don't. You don't give her the vis and you didn't test terrorists much. You want and showing them on my God damn house talking about pay bit. Like for me, personally, you have got to be a special person. I vein is a Serena us special like it's almost like they were designed to deal with the racism. They were design to deal with the with with with the being called niggers. Would you go to tournament like you got to be a special parson because of told him to kiss my ass a long fucking time ago because the whole time she's been there breaking records doing all this miraculously shit. They have done nothing but disrespected her the entire time. Right? And so like like I said, I would put her even ahead of tiger. 'cause agree. You like tiger does a lot to be like, but not to black all calm down, right? Like just Weck enough, whereas conduct when not really. Okay. Guys, calm down. It's the Raina does. I mean Tigers say. Said, people need to respect Trump like two days ago. Serena would never ever would never, you know, Venus is more lay back, but Serena, I mean, in addition to, you know, like Venus definitely has some health issues and shit like that. But Serena, we all knew she was younger. And what's the past Venus at some point? And she became so dominant and so good and she still so black and so committed to our her people and everything she does is like fucking like iconic. It. You know less. I'm stepping into motherhood, like like with my fucking foot on mother who's right. Like just vicious motherhood. I'm gonna tackle this shit, you know, but being transparent and honest and vulnerable and able to talk about like complications with her pregnancy postpartum depression. You know, she's changing what it means to be the most dominant athlete in error, where we've normally seen a dominant athlete as the impervious, right?.

"An incredible effort for me as motivation for the rest of my career we often measure greatness in terms of titles and turn the tennis major titles with this run to the final regardless of what happened saturday is one of those things will remember serena four and should be added when it comes to conversations about her legacy absolute art outta soon kobe stands grilled with the brawny eight or at least put an icebox for the next four years just goes to show some people penny knows no bound so artists jonas never opted to to cover his mural on a wall fabian blue barbecue restaurant in venice with white paint wins the after this clown wit and flattered it with yellow paint really do not afford that some joker repainted we don't want you know king and three and six over them you'll never say that the mule receive a lot of positive feedback but hopeful signs a pro koby antilock rahm responses josh aren't tweeted this is sad and disrespectful la we are better than this are are you you but i sit in with us and not pay with a broad build the vast majority in la does seem excited about lebron's arrival but can lakers fans koby loyalists in particular ever truly come to love lebron on that level we as mike we are a lot better than this this was senseless and it was a horrible thing to happen to a beautiful beautiful mural but the key was in the artist has set himself was the word of the king of la that's what apparently the vandals took offence to and that is where lebron stands in his image in la right now is people will not they're so worried about colby bryant legacy out here the pm dean for many for this current generation the king of la that won't accept lebron he'll have to win a championship every great laker icon except for elgin baylor won a championship in eljay retired in the middle of a championship your and got championship bring so every laker icon has a ring on his finger that he won with the lakers with brian is going to have to win at least one championship to ever be fully accepted here and this senseless horrible thing that they did this is an indication of that before we get to what i'm not sure that's fair bill let me redirect back to you for a second i don't know this fair y'all went from begging people just accept you free agent money to make you relevant again haven't been in a playoffs in five years let alone a championship and you telling me lebron has to win a title there in order to be an agenda he has he has one year to get stuff to go yeah now they're gonna give one year and then they have another free agent opening next year for choir leonard or klay thompson someone like that that's what it's got to happen no fans here fancier will be happy for year you gotta win here to be i here you've got to win the title that's just the way it is welcome to welcome to pressure lebron this is your life what it what do you say well la's hard town we know that but those those buffoons who actually paid it over the euro that's desecrating art and that makes no sense whatsoever and they should be criminalized as a result of it in regard to lebron and his legacy he's already created a legacy i think winning titles in going dates straight finals i mean la saying oh yeah you got win voice right away well it's quite possible but i saw similar situation in peyton manning when he came to denver and actually they worked very hard john elway specifically to get him one more championship so.

"Face angelique kerber in saturday's final rematch twenty six final the mother of all twenty fifty williams said quote is crazy i don't even know how to feel i literally didn't expect to do this well in my foot tournament back in sixteen months i just feel like when i don't have anything to lose i could just play so three that kind of what i'm doing close quote clinton start off our free cease into queens three thirty six a new mom and a win away from eight wimbledon's and a record tying twenty fourth major title all right have to press this was one point serena williams is my favorite athlete of all time over there to understand that so when you get into the discussion of the greatest or not there's that but i wanna make something clear here within deb to me the most about this is the fact that she came back from that injury in the french to maintain focus on a tennis level a lot of people wanna get caught up in oshii had a baby and she's coming back women have babies and come back and do things all the time that's how history works and why we have continued to save human beings so while this is obviously large accomplishment in terms of getting through that part from tennis standpoint something i think we forget a lot about serena she has moved back to her form which is the reason why the wpa and the tour is decided to change these rules which is if you're gone for pregnancy you should not be penalized for that in the rankings i really do applaud that way she's been able to stay on top of her and get back to this final just putting a little asterisk next to clinton's disclaimer about people have babies all the time and do things she did have a difficult pregnancy she is in her mid thirties and she's way past the age most women in tennis have any kind of success serena piles up these stats there like roger federer's every time you see us that you can't believe this one's true her latest she's now won twenty straight matches at wimbledon she's had a twenty win streak before it was fourteen years ago it was from two thousand and two to two thousand four here she is doing it again this would be i think her greatest championship ever if she pulls it off saturday woodrow well just to have instead they're to those great that she's one ten semi finals in a row and they only want shiver lost was to a lady named venus i appear into semi finals but just an aside i thought it was fantastic when when the tournament started she missed her daughter alexis olympia for steps and it really bothered her but she's got her with her head around on the grass courts earlier this week and i think that's fantastic that our daughter that she missed that time for is going to actually see her mother possibly win wimbledon for the first time won't that'd be fantastic but she's just said all these records over the years she is by far the best women's player of all time the best tennis player of all time and very possibly the best athlete men's or women of all time all right what an incredible accomplishment bill would he not very possibly she wins his thing in my mind she will be the greatest athlete male or female evren clinton you're right it's been done before she would be the fourth woman to win a major four fourth mom to win a major the us open air but goodness ten months ago she gave birth ten months ago she nearly died she had two operations after giving birth she was ranked at one hundred eighty i you had to fight back from the twenty fifth this is unbelievable this is unconscionable what she's doing here i don't think there's any way you can put any kind of asterix on it or anything and she would a great standard set for a great example of working moms everywhere again i love the fact that this is a working mom getting credit for all this and i i can't even greater athlete a graphic achievement what she's doing now i just want to say quickly that serena's complications during pregnancy and childbirth there's something that affect women of color in this country a lot more than they do a lot of other places in that highlighted that so that is a great point i love you say whatever happens is just.

"It's more than a working relationship they're good friends joe a scene serena at her lowest and she has a deep understanding of why serena takes losing so personally when she loses its say it's a spiral and it can take days it can take um you know a week for her to come up for air it's a very isolating dark introspective time for her there is nobody harder on themselves than than she is and i think some of it goes to the fact that she feels like she lets people down besides playing for herself i think she feels like she plays for a lot of disenfranchised groups this is what compounds every defeat for serena williams she and her sister venus were the first female superstars of color in professional tennis is she's become one of the most widely recognized female athletes in the world so there's a weight of representation that comes with being as iconic as she is serena talked about it in a speech in 2015 she just been named sports illustrated sports person of the year and on heavy bullock down on me i've had people let me down because i didn't look like them i look stronger i've had people in past me because of the colour my skin i've had people overlook me because i was a woman i had critics say i will never win another grand slam when i was only at number seven now here i stand today twenty one grand slam titles and i'm still going you know you had to young girls coming up from compton with beads who literally were going to change the face of culture and change the face of sport they were very isolated together they can you know they came in as a family unit.

"The mcenroe sound from npr that's a controversy now because serena's objected to it and because we need content in june i'm going to just give you some facts here these are facts and again i get why it is that the oppressed white man right now in two thousand seventeen is frustrated because the oppressed white man wants to say whatever it is that he wants to say bill maher has to get lectured by ice cube hey the n word that our word now you guys can't have it anymore and the oppressed white man is like why can i have it i want words i want to these words that i wanna use them however i want the way that i've always used up now not that one not yours anymore so i get though why the white man is bothered by that i don't particularly understand why it is that a statement of fact that serena williams herself has voiced would be objectionable or sexist so i'm gonna give you some more facts on this jahic knowing your member him in two thousand three joking noah's father was forty three years old he played justine henin in a friendly match at the forest national in brussels you imagine this happening today noah donned a dress for much of the match he played predominantly trick shots and the ended up winning four six six four seven six can you imagine this happening today because i can imagine mcenroe doing this playing and address against serena williams and is super that's actually said during the break because you know june i wanna watch conor mcgregor and floyd mayweather play tennis it's actually something that's got said during the break i buy it.
