California's iconic redwoods threatened by climate change

"Now Rangers and conservationists are developing plans to better protect them at a that the world's tallest trees May not survive future places that are almost certain to come. It's a story by Jim Carlton reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Jim Take us through this. So Gordon the California redwoods are famous for being fire resistant when you walked through mural Woods, Humboldt State Park. You know these places with the giant redwoods. You can see the burn marks from fires of, you know. Hundreds of years ago. The big called canals. Oh, and the big question is, Can the redwoods survive? Today's mega fires? Firestorms? These are gigantic fires that they've never really seen before. They're fueled by the climate change. Basically, that means it's really dry. There's congested force conditions, etcetera. And so it's really a big question Whether these redwoods can Take a and we've We're getting some of our first big test now. Yeah, All right. So there's been, uh, you could describe it better but of greater frequency of Maura. Intense fires. In addition to the number of fires, I guess right in these trees have done okay, but there is concern. Right? Well, we just kind of a little bit of background. I mean of the top 20 most destructive fires and California recorded history like 17 have happened in the last 10 to 15 years. Um and we just had, you know the paradise Fire, you know, keep the camp fire that killed anybody people, So they're bigger. They're deadlier, more destructive and they're starting to hit the redwoods. Now they're only the redwoods are protected by fog along the coast. From about the big Sur coast of central California to southern Oregon. And there is a pretty wet forest. And so they know they don't get a lot of fire historically would be a few. You know, a small fire. Every few decades on, it would kind of burnout. Ah, lot of the brush and kind of leave the big crease alone. But that's what's changing. Now speak with Jim Carlton reporter at The Wall Street Journal. His pieces called California's plan to save its 1000 year old redwoods from wildfires. So

Fallout of Texas winter blast

"Good evening. Thank you for joining us. The governor of sexist apologizing and promising answers after a deadly winter storm the deep freeze. Just the start of an ongoing nightmare for residents now. Struggling with shattered pipes in skyrocketing energy. Bill here's abc's tripled. I can't imagine what it's like for you to see it like this is terrible. I've never thinking house. This brianna bolden tells me she could smell the soap rotting wood from outside the front door of her grandmother's house before walking into this is pictures and the memories. They captured all underwater. And this is actually my big lama right here. This is all and that's the past those wife for half a century. Her grandparents filled this home with children and grandchildren home cooked meals. Tiny reminders of a family growing together is a lot of memories at this house. But now this house like so many in texas has been gutted. Helplessly flooded by first hypes last week's historic winter storm on your couch look. The damage is just a fraction of the devastation. in texas. that killed thirty. Two people will take months or years and billions of dollars to clean up. So how did it go so wrong so quickly. Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up. A forty percent drop in texas generation and the result was more than three million texas residents in the dark and cold at one point leading many to take drastic measures for running dangerously low on one. So now what we've been doing. All day is actually coming outside getting snow putting it are pods and heaving on our propane grill. Then hypes began to freeze and burst shutting down water treatment plants across the state inning. Almost fifteen million texans would have to toil their water of four. It was safe to drink daily block water. We don't even have the electric reliability council of texas or bur. Kat had long been warned. Its infrastructure was vulnerable to freezing temperatures the state legislature held hearings on this exact issue in twenty eleven. The last time the state experienced major freeze there were numerous hearings hundreds of pages of recommendations but they were all made voluntarily. Nobody actually change the incentives so that the generators would have a financial reason food to weather. Is this week. Several urquhot born members resigned in the wake of this disaster today in virtual urquhot board of directors meeting. The chairwoman acknowledged the pain and suffering of texans her resignation effective after the meeting ended. All of our hearts go out to all of you with head to go without electricity. Heat water not attending and food during frigid temperatures and continue to face the tragic consequences in some cases. The loss of a loved one state leaders have promised an investigation into urquhot handling of the crisis and members of both parties and the governor of rowing to make sure texans are on the hook for those astronomical electric bills at a time when essential services were needed. The most the system broke. You deserve answers. You will get those answers but people brianna bolden are in need of far more immediate solutions. She's facing mounting hardships. Having recently lost her father and grandfather. It sounds like your grandmother doesn't have home insurance right now. She don't she couldn't afford it anymore. Every generation been through this. Is papa really worked hard for this. I'm sorry statewide. There is so much damage from burst. Pipes plumbers can't keep up see the water. We have another one right here. Everardo omega of a plumbing. In houston says he's crews have been working around the clock just as bad. I mean there's necas mad and they're receiving more calls than they can answer this heartbreaking the tell somebody. uk make we broke down here. Twenty five hours plummer andrew mitchell in his family driving all the way from new jersey with a car full of equipment in arts in short supply here for just going to see what we can do to help out texas residents and also converging in texas to help out the cajun navy civilian volunteers known for using their big trucks. Kamal boats for rescues during major storms like hurricane harvey in twenty seventeen. We talked with a lot of people around here who've been they were impacted by hurricane harvey. I dealing with this. A lot of people think that this is worse than a hurricane's coming in we have more. We know what's going to happen with this disaster. We did not know what was coming. Community was not prepared. No one knew what was coming riley at this is marin mckim. She spent the last decade doing aid work in africa. When disaster struck home she was one of the first on the front lines. The cajun navy has gotten quite good quickly setting up distribution sites like this one but with so many people impacted. What's perhaps most useful is their platform and their connections. Cajun navy crowd sources disasters and cajun navias known so once we find the need we start using the social media platform and we put the word out there and people want to help on this day.

A history of Mountweazels

"Suppose. I wanted to start a company that sold maps i hire cartographers and spend a lot of time and money going out and gathering data. Because i'm just documenting something which exists in reality. The end result of all my hard work and investment is going to look just like other maps. That are out there already. So why couldn't i just skip all the effort and copy the maps which already exist. Sure i'll change the font and the colors but fundamentally the end result is going to be the same either way right. This is a big problem for any maker of reference products maps dictionaries and encyclopedias. You can't copyright facts but you can take steps to show that someone is a plagiarist or violating. Copyright they do this via copyright traps copyright traps are nothing more than false information which is putting reference material to catch people who copy their content. If you copy everything without checking you'll copy the false information which will be evidence of plagiarism. Promos famous example was in the nineteen seventy five new columbia encyclopedia. they created an entry for one lillian. Virginia mount weasel. They created a full entry in the encyclopedia for which was totally fiction. According to the entry lillian. Mount weasel was a photographer who was famous for her photos of south. Sierra me walk whatever that is according to the entry quote. Mount weasel died at thirty one in an explosion while on assignment for combustibles magazine unquote while there was no cases of anyone actually copying the mount weasel entry. The term amount weasel is now a term for a copyright trap. there's a million. Mt weasel facebook page and the lillian virginia mount weasel research center website which has fake interviews with people who knew her as well as fake copies of combustibles magazine while this is one of the best known examples of copyright trap. It's hardly the only one. The nineteen forty three edition of webster's twentieth century dictionary had an entry for junk attack spelled j. u. n. g. f. t. a. k. The entry read quote junk noun. Persian bird the male of which only had one wing on the right side and the female only one wing on the left side. Instead of the missing wings the male had hook of bone and the female an eyelid of bone and it was by uniting hook and eye that they were unable to fly each one alone had remained on the ground and quote. There's no pronunciation given so. I'm pretty sure i said it correctly because there is no way to say correctly. The new oxford american dictionary has a definition for the word espa valence. Their definition of the word is the wilful avoidance of one's official responsibilities. The thing is this fake word has actually found some usage and there is now an entry for in which which references the original new oxford american dictionary definition. Personally i think esco valence is a perfectly crumlin word problems. The heaviest users of copyright traps are matt makers in cartography copyright traps are known as trap streets trap streets are fictional street or locations which are used to check to see if someone is copying their map. They're usually very small streets or alleys of no importance as no one actually uses it as an address because it doesn't exist. There isn't too much of a problem if they appear on maps. The state of michigan put fake towns in ohio in their nineteen seventy-eight official roadmap. The towns were beata so spelled beat. Osu and go blue aka go blue.

The Legacy of Trauma: Can Experiences Leave A Biological Imprint?

"Okay so we are talking about epa genetic. Stay where do we start areola. Well we gotta go back to the basics genetics minus the abbey part so most of the time when we think of genetic changes. We think about dna mutations be squeezed changes in the actual sequence of dna. Yeah and it turns out. This isn't the whole story. Our dna is covered in small molecules. That tell her body had a use the dna. Brian dies gave me a great metaphor to describe all this. He teaches at the university of southern california school of medicine. So within you. And i is a book of life which is our dna and that dna needs to be read. And if our dna is a book of life than those small molecules i was talking about our punctuation marks and depending on what punctuation is where the book is going to be read very differently. Meaning those markers can amplify or down certain parts of our dna so when we talk about epigenetics were talking about how these molecules around our dna affect our dna is read exactly and we can see this really clearly in different parts of our body. How well every cell in our body has the same blueprint the same dna. But we know that not every cell in our body is the same we don't have. We don't have is growing in our fingertips. Speak for yourself over there so look even though ourselves all have the same dna. The dna is being used differently in different cells. And i'm guessing epigenetics has something to do. Yes our ib genetic markers vary in different parts of our body in the i for example. There's certain markers that say you become an i cell and suppress everything will make you a tooth. And here's the thing. Our environment and behaviors change our genetics. All the time not enough to make peace start growing out of your eyes. I promise but still changing. Yeah and i. I remember learning about this discovery in grad school and it being revolutionary like oh our environment can affect our genetics in real time without actually changing the sequence of our dna at all. Yeah and of course. It's more complicated than that. But this field is a really big deal. It's shown us that different environmental factors like diet and pollution can change our epi genetic markers and now people are trying to figure out if trauma and stress also cause genetic changes and if they do can. These changes be passed down like the dutch hunger study. We talked about earlier right. Yeah among others now look. We can't assume too much from these human studies. They have small sample. Sizes are tons of confounding variables. Right right i mean. Isn't it possible that these descendants are more likely to have these diseases due to social factors. Yes i asked bianca the same question she said. I sure that's a problem with human studies. it's really hard to separate the learned experience from the biological one. It is hard to say that a parent who has starred will now then treat food in the same way apparent who is not starved. And what we're interested in looking at is if we remove the parent from the situation and we just have the sperm cells and the exiles doll the work. Do we still see these changes and one way to start to figure that out is doing animal studies. Right so brian. The scientists who gave us that cool metaphor earlier did some of the first groundbreaking research on this. He basically introduced male mice to a particular smell. And when we exposed the meister smell we administer a very mild foot. Shaw that we i are selves at. We know it's not painful but mildly annoying to the mouse and as a consequence that particular smell becomes stressful to the parental generation.

A Small Molecule Cancer Drug That Promotes an Adaptive Immune Response

"Matt. Thanks for joining us. It's a pleasure nice to meet you. Danny i'm glad to be here. We're going to talk about fos flatten. Its lead therapy. Which has multiple mechanisms of action and how it works to enlist the immune system to kill cancer cells. Let's start with your lead therapeutic. Pt on twelve. Which is a first class. Harrow phosphate platinum conjugate. Break that down in simple terms. What is it thank you. That's a good question. I think maybe i'll just briefly tell you a little bit about the company and how we got to where we are with this molecule. Pt one to foss platin- therapeutics was founded by myself. And our ceo robert fallon my fellow co founder in two thousand ten and we really built the the company around this family of compounds that we in license at the discovery. Stage which comprise these Family of these first in class pi-rre phosphate platinum conjugates and based in new york. Although these days that that means something different than it used to We have a nice Small office here in midtown with our management team. Of course now are all working remotely and we worked our way through preclinical and early clinical development by running collaborations around the world. We've actually had worked ongoing in fifteen countries Since we started and These are academe amick. A- collaborations contract research organizations clinical sites but also industry collaborators We we have a an existing collaboration with pfizer and their co-development partner. Md serono or merck darmstadt on one of the combination programs that were running and we're still private company in early phase two development with pt. One too so to your question about pt to is a small molecule and actually to our knowledge. It's the first anti cancer agent containing a pirate phosphate and This has implications on its safety. Its pharmacokinetics to mechanism of action. And even on its. It's targeting where it's delivery within the body and i'm sure we can get into that further as we go. I generally think of conjugated therapies is linking targeting mechanism to a- warhead. I take it the way. Pt one to works is a bit different. What exactly conjugated in pt. One two and what to each those components do it's a great question i think we. We certainly are not an antibody drug conjugate. I don't want to give that impression. I think we're thinking of conjugation. As a medicinal chemistry term that goes back to certainly before the advent of of adc's in cancer care Our inventor of the late refunder bose was actually the first researcher able to successfully link or conjugate a pyro phosphate to platinum core molecule. And of course Platinum molecules with platinum in their core have been a mainstay of of cancer. Care for some time now. He was really seeking through his work in medicinal chemistry To find a new paradigm for a platinum containing agents he did so by congregating power phosphate. And what that does is because the para phosphate is so strongly linked. It remains intact for the most part in the body theory differently from cytotoxic agents and certainly from other platinum containing agents Pyro phosphate also benign in the body Native to healthy cells so you'll the respiration so we're not adding something that's in and of itself toxic

Restaurants Look for Ways Around Food-Delivery Apps

Restaurants Look for Ways Around Food-Delivery Apps

"Okay. So here's an experience. You probably become pretty familiar with in the last year or so. You go door dash or ubereats figure out exactly what you wanna eat. You added to your cart and then when you go to check out. The cost of your meal has skyrocketed with all the fees and delivery charges. And somehow you're stuck paying twenty five dollars for a burger that originally cost twelve bucks on the other side of the process. Restaurants have had a similar experience. They depend on apps. Like doordash uber eats to connect them to customers especially in the pandemic but have been frustrated with the commission that they charge and now some restaurants have been looking for ways to cut out the middleman or apps for more on this we turn to our tech reporter pretty khurana. Hey guys thanks for being here. Thanks for having me on the show. Okay so talk about some of the frustrations that restaurants have been bringing up. And what are we seeing them do about it. Well restaurants are increasingly pushing back on the commissions that apps charge not just restaurants regulators in cities like new york san francisco. Seattle have stepped in to cap commissions. Because it's really hurting restaurants with in store. Dining shot small restaurants are relying entirely on delivery and taking thirty percent of every single order is really eating into their prophets. What restaurants are increasingly doing. And this is ironic. My door dash delivery a few weeks ago. Had a sticker from my restaurant inside the bag seeing twenty percent off if you order directly from us and i found it interesting because the restaurant was using the same app that it was trying to bypass to get the word out so restaurants are increasingly driving more volume to their own websites their own apps there enticing consumers with deals discounts promotions that people go directly to them to order. What's also happened. Is that this push and pull between restaurants and apps have inspired a new wave of online delivery services that are saying you know what we're going to give better deals to restaurants and some of them that we wrote about are either charging restaurants. Nothing or charging them say one dollar for every order as opposed to thirty percent commission on the order and how the apps respond to the concerns that the restaurants have about those commissions. Well the meeting apps have said that they have taken steps to help only on and the pandemic door dash waved commissions for small restaurants. Grubhub suspended some commissions. Overeats has said that it has cut commissions in hof for restaurants that are now doing their own deliveries so the apps are pointing to all these steps they have taken to cut or wave or suspend commissions. Touring the pandemic separately. They've said that we've also given millions of dollars in grants to restaurants to help build outdoor seating so they are definitely helping restaurants. But i think commission's are here to stay Especially off to the pandemic and it remains to be seen how this reshapes landscape long-term As consumer behavior evolves and as restaurants think of alternatives to get around these apps in their fees yet and. Let's talk more about those alternatives. You know you mentioned some of them are any of them. Proving successful so far it's unclear if the new host of apps and services that are coming up will ever turn a profit themselves because even the big apps ubereats jordache grubhub aren't profitable even during the pandemic where orders an all time high. These apps haven't been able to turn a profit. The biggest cost in food delivery. Is the delivery itself. So what some of these new apps are doing is that they're saying let's eliminate that cost altogether. What some of these apps doing are driving enough volume to restaurants themselves to make it worthwhile for the restaurant to deliver. So in that instance. The app itself doesn't have any delivery fees or any delivery cost associated restaurants set their own delivery fees for the consumer and what we found is that often they price it lower than say door dash or ubereats just encourage more orders on apps that are charging no commissions or offering better deals to restaurants. Yeah and on the other side of that door dash is set to post earnings later today. It's their first report since going public. And as you mentioned they and the rest of these apps have really struggled to make money even as the pandemic meeks ordering and really popular. What the rise of these alternative solutions mean for them. These big apps are already responding door. Dash ubereats and grubhub are actually now building websites and apps for small restaurants and acting as old school logistics partners to just deliver the food. So they've taken note of restaurants increasing wariness. And they're saying well we wanna keep the restaurants happy and we're seeing this growing movement by restaurants to drive more orders to their websites. So why don't we build these websites for them. We keep the restaurants happy but then we charge them a delivery fee just to deliver that order. So that's what they're doing to also keep the business and to also make sure that they're not completely being cut out by restaurants themselves so what's the takeaway of all. That's what does this all mean for the industry moving forward whether or not this reshape. The food delivery landscape depends on how consumer behavior evolves once things. Go back to normal will. Delivery continued to make a huge part of sales or will in-store dining return and delivery goes back to being a small slice of business. If delivered remains a big part of business restaurants. Might say it's worth my time to deliver myself in that case that might eat into the apps business. If delivery goes to being small slice of business restaurants might say you know what most of our money is coming from in store dining anyway. It's fine even if these apps at taking thirty percent in commissions it's fine. It's not hurting me that much. So a lot of this depends on how consumer behavior shits off to the pandemic and whether or not. It's still worthwhile for restaurants to invest in delivering themselves. All right that there are puerto predate verana things today. thank

"Walk in the show. Thank you absolutely glad to be here all right. So that was a tongue twister of a title the vp of digital customer experience at point next service which is a hewlett packard. Enterprise line of business. Tell the audience. What exactly is point next service. Absolutely so hewlett packard. Enterprise offers a variety of products and as a offerings into the marketplace. Endpoint next is actually support inservice arm of the company so everything we do is focusing geared towards enabling customers to run their it infrastructure from a support and service perspective and so with that said diving a little detail like give us a use case of win. A business would call on your lean on you to implement or develop. Were handle something for them. Absolutely so for us. We view our customers. Everything from small medium business all the way up to fortune ten companies and as these companies are making their it infrastructure decisions and then implementations as well as even the management and operating of those environments point next is able to step in and support the customers through that journey and then as a customer is if they're managing an environment themselves. We provide that level. One two three support for them should they run into any problems in their environment as well and then when it comes to the digital customer experience side of that so customer experience is used quite often in the tech industry where it's actually in the every industry right people always talk about. What is the customer experience. What's the digital customer experience. We've had clients that sell direct to consumer shoes talk about how they wanna make sure. Their website integrates nicely there skews when a customer purchases or when gets on the line for service help they all consider that part of the customer experience. Is there a specific domain in your world where you're the vp of customer experience. Where you're focused on inside of this digital services offering at a great question so as we've approached this it's really been from customer view and we've looked at how we can transform the way our customers engage with us as the business traditionally support business has been managed in one wanted two ways. It's either a face to face situation. Where a customer has a representative where there is actual face to face interaction. there's an onsite presence or there's an element that's a remote delivery side. What's your typical type call center or technical solution center. Where if a customer has a problem they call in and get that support the landscapes changing and our customers really just want that digital capability to self solve to self serve and own their own future. So what we're doing on the digital experience side is looking at our portal environment our social forums even looking into mobile applications where we can create a true environment. Our customers can operate. Add an end to end platform. That's integrated that has elements of a layered through it and at the same time. Has a seamless connected back to our telephony infrastructure so from a digital engagement perspective the costumer has the opportunity to choose when they want to engage with us a platform of choice and then as they work through driving business results were always there to support them not only digitally but also through our collective infrastructure back our global remote delivery

Helping Your Gen-Z Child Work through Anxiety and Trauma

"In this day and age and kids are seen things on social media and the news and a lot of tweens. Teens are very active on social media accounts. And so there's a lot going on on those accounts. A lot of opinions are being tossed. There's a lot of video being shown. So how can i tell if my child is experiencing trauma. Yeah it's a really good question and i. I have good news bad news. And i want to be really clear about this. That right now. Your child is experiencing trauma if they have any witness to the world. So unless you've got them locked up in the basement which is also trauma of a different nature. They are experiencing trauma but the good news is that that doesn't necessarily mean they're being traumatized and that's where we can really step in and do something like effectively. Do something relational early To impact whether or not the trauma that we're experiencing traumatizes and impacts their development as children I see okay. So we are just assume they are experiencing trauma. Yes okay. And so if they're experiencing trauma and i'm external trauma and say. I am traumatized. Person from things have happened in my life. If my own trauma. How can i help. How can i help them. So you know back in the days when we could fly on a regular basis and we've listened to the flight attendant to give the you know the safety Explanation before you take off one of things that they say is if you're traveling with a small child and the oxygen mask drops down. What what are we supposed to do right. Where we put our own message Oxygen mask on first. And that's the image. I wanna take into that question is we do have to have a level of self awareness to understand when we're we are ourselves traumatized when that's the case. We need to get help that and that that's the putting on the oxygen and that can be help through having a good friend that you can talk to and unload what you're feeling and you can feel safe and heard that can sometimes it's all we need. Sometimes we need a pastor that can help us with maybe the faith questions that were having or a spiritual director that can help us try to find out where jesus is right now for us because we can get really confused when we're traumatized and sometimes it can be professional help that we need so i We have put our own oxygen mask on whatever that means for us and we have to have some awareness and sometimes that means asking the people that we live with are the people that know us the best How are you experiencing me in this. Do you feel like annetjie. Do you feel like you see changes in my personality. Do how were you experiencing me. If i'm not sure and we all really need to be asking that question right now. That's a really good question to ask. Actually i hadn't thought about santa that way. How are you experiencing me. Because i can tell what i'm experiencing but then i don't necessarily know how it's coming across to someone else. So if i'm experiencing trauma. And i'm angry most of the time or my sadness comes out as anger than to ask a person how you're experiencing me. And if they say well you seem to really angry. Then that's a sign that i need to do something because if by primary personality is anger then that's telling me my body's telling me something's not right

Seeking Refuge On The Open Road

"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out

"Home depot. Fourth quarter profits came in higher than expected but shares falling a little bit today on concerns that twenty twenty one is not going to be a strong home depot is twenty twenty was and i will just point out shares of home depot over the past year even with the drop today shares are up little more like let's call it ten percent maybe eleven percent ten eleven percent. This is not a stock that has shot to the moon in the past year. I'm it's still the same business. They've done an amazing job over the last ten months a managing their business in the wake of the pandemic. I'm i'm not sure why there is at least a little bit of pessimism today about home depot the pessimism if there is some Comes out of what a small amount of guidance the company gave so before addressing that On the numbers you know the cops were up comparable sales at that. Existing stores are up. Twenty four point five percent or total sales up twenty four point five percent and comparable sales were up twenty five percent. So that gives you a sort of level set on. How business did they don't grow a lot of stores at home depot. They they just keep doing a great job. The stores they have not many close nominee open So it's not a growth story through. They expand the size of their stores in many cases with side by side. Lots for Plants and things like that and and things that they can put outside the four walls of the store So growth for the company was about twenty five percent for the year. As you say the stock only went up about eleven percent. Part of that is because the sales growth was More expensive margins contracted because of the increased costs of operating during covid and then the guidances is a little weaker than what people might have been hoping for which is a. They didn't give any guidance. They they said Company said that because of the uncertainty of how things are going to play out They don't feel comfortable giving guidance. But if things look in twenty twenty one on the way they looked at the second half of twenty twenty they think flat to slightly positive comps

"Now. But just watching them shell the hose just like you knew it wasn't. So then the narrator comes back to tell us of yet another problem that they're going to get into. It's the day that he got into the biggest pickle of all time, and it all started with an omen as what this guy says. Benny's at bat and we're only slow motion and he hits the ball so hard. It rips the cover off of the ball so smalls catches in the ability runs. The twine underneath it and. They're all. When he ran. All saying circle around the cover of the ball in squinched goes must be an omen. Wow, you really are smart can. You do when a movie says. This is like foreshadowing right? And so then they're like we can't play because we don't have another ball which has been a theme in the thing as soon as they run out of the one they have. They have to either go buy another ball. or He's got goosebumps when you said that. Because every time I watched this movie like Oh don't see those smalls y'all view and. I got a ball, so he runs home and at this point Dennis leary is on a trip or something you'd be. You're the man of the House now. And smalls goes into densely trivia room in his like takes the Babe Ruth Ball. He runs back. Yes. Question, so so you wrote down before, or you said that he wrote down, Jake Paul things to remember the Great Bambi now at this point. Has He figured out those that at that? been. They're all talking about the. Early in the film you. He just pretended to go along with them. It's like Oh. Yeah, I know who that is, but he has not put it. Right. That's I'm just trying to remember so it's like he doesn't realize even though you. Wouldn't so. Right so. Eventually this candy is.

You're dead the dead and he's like who is she and then they all do the same thing the grape. Sold Them Swat this Colossus Club. And actually ends with Great Bambino but. That's not a there so. Now. No, great fan being no, it's. Right like Oh my list. Here today. Your back pocket grabbed my list What are we going to do and effectively now from here on out? The whole plot of the film is like. How do we get the ball back? So the first thing that they do. which feels like a good time before we get into the different ways, they exploited that ball back i. just want to let everybody know as I did at the beginning, but I have to do it again here. Today's podcast brought to you by cord light. something that those kids can enjoy, but we can and so Ashley.

"For talent honored. Absolutely there's A. Lot of punching into the baseball gloves at this point I. think that's important to note because there's a lot of doing that and it doesn't make any sense, so it's a brand new glove. You've got to break it because it's been his old club, so then hits one into the field and weights are you don't think that Benny maybe is just a glove salesman that has other gloves in his pocket that. It's a it's a narrative. We must didn't charge any money for its glove salesman. He's not a very good one. DRUG DEAL! Forgive him the first one for free. Get them hooked teaching punching. It is helpful and then when he destroys it. Where's he going to go for his next glove? Not leary can't. So Benny hits them a ball. It goes over the falls on his ass. Then his giant hat with the fish on it falls off. He has to pick John. Put his giant hat on here. The beast again still nobody addresses it. Then he runs the ball and hands it to the sorry so i. feel like you're assuming people have seen the film when you. Hear the. Look I've accepted at this point that we are doing sandlot this podcast, so we don't have to speed. Let's make sure we get to discuss the film. Slow it down if you will and when you say, we hear the beast. What do you mean so? We say this big like. Hodgepodge fence and there's like some wire. Some would add behind it. Just hear a loud growling sound. We've seen at once before and heard it once before when he was in the Outfield, the first time in ran away now. We're hearing again, so he picks up. His giant hat picks the ball, and he runs it into the second basement and hands it to him because again. We've established that he doesn't know how to throw. And it's not good. He should play football, yeah! And, so then Benny takes a look at the situation and the thing about Benny Benjamin Franklin. Rodriguez if you will. He really is nothing but a good a dramatic guy so far. What's up, Ashley? Sorry J just one second. He's what. I said he was a dream boat. Did you not have a crush on Benny the jet? On, be honest. No, I don't think I see. We've had this discussion before I always went for like the minor characters because I knew. Friends would get yes, sir. Had A crush on. Or smalls, or you know genuine probably smalls. Because Benny the jet Rodriguez was like the Devon Sawa this movie he was on table for me was not a guy I was allowed to have a crush on If it had Apollo Anton Ohno in it girl was at I. was there ready to go?

"Blue pink green gradient. That's gotta so it's something that you would wanna like. Hang up art. I think you could keep it as like a cool weird our Pisa because if you wanted to. You could just by a frame that is big enough for it, and then do the puzzle in the frame so that when you're done, you pop the back on it, and then you can hang it up. And that way to you pick it up off the table and move it somewhere else. Yeah, as I learned with when Ashley and I were doing that puzzle in the office, because we both just really needed a puzzle, and then we're doing it on somebody's desk. And then it was the end of the night, and we weren't even close to finish, but we had big chunks of it don and tried to like. Move it some and I just lost all of it, so she taped together I try and the national ruin the puzzle. Look what else did I have to I was alone. The did a great job. But. Yeah, if you do the puzzle in a frame, it's GonNa delay you being able to start the puzzle soon, but it will give you an option when. I finished by the puzzle, so it's okay if it delays me, do I start? I was dying the start fenway one when it finally came, and then I did it on the floor and then I'm like give a dog idiot. You can't just like leave this year. And so then when it was done, I just had to break it apart and put it away and it was very upsetting. But now someday I can do it again. If I want to. I don't want to. The Fan. Parts took a very long time. Very, frustrating, There was more I talk about. Just in our personal lives. I, am I only talked about my dog? I have started i. told you this yesterday. Actually, but it's been great for me. I've started playing call duty on line with my brother and his friends so now at nighttime. I have like a group of people that I hang out lists and I'm getting better. I'm not an still not very good, but I'm getting better and and it's really fun, and if you told twelve year old me that one day my brother would let me play video games with him. you blow my mind because my whole childhood was me being like let's play plays a steel and being like you get next game. And then he would be done playing in leave and I'd be like. Why didn't WanNa? Play with? You but I was trash I just never practiced so then I. Just I just accepted it and was like I'll just watch you play. which is why now I can't watch people play video games like I put in my time i. don't need anymore. so yeah. I've been getting super. into call of duty. Like a aggressively into call duty they were. Really. Well, you know you can't really get into it any other way. I've been playing a lot of multiplayer. which is just, can you just dialogue, but also you kill a lot? And came in I a couple of times, but not not in warzone I've I came in fourth as my best more zone, but killed seven people in that match. I mean it's hit or miss. It's a it's a whole thing, but. Great thing from a mental health is turn everybody else's microphone off in multiplayer. Because the first time I played, I heard a bunch of people yelling. About how bad other people are including myself, but not just me. And then I was just like you know what if I just mute this I don't have to know. That smart right? It's like not reading comments. I was GONNA. Say in the closest I. Come to not reading. Everyone's like you can't check your eyes and I'm like that's not how my brain works, but with this I'm like it actually is better to just mute everybody especially because there is I mean over a lot of racial slurs being thrown out by people that I'm fairly certain shouldn't be using them, and so that's so everyone. Will yes, but you know you know what I meant. So she's a lot of It's good for mental health, and so now I just. Kill people in Games with various guns. That's exciting. Thanks, guys. There's a hot market out there for your video game content. I think you should consider yet again I. don't know because here's thing. I'm okay with being trash. It's actually worse for me now. That I play a lot that I'm like all right. When I didn't play a lot, being trashed was acceptable. Now I should be getting better, but I think I've recognized my ceiling. I know where it is I know. I can't get much better than that, so I'm. You know I can't mute people. If I go on the Internet. The comments will be there and I'll read though so You posted that clip of me and Jerry Judy playing. A pretty funny. Because he didn't know how play, but men just. That's the thing other thing I'm trying to learn through. This game is like a quick decision making because you need to. Assess the situation. Make a call really quickly. which you know Ashley Am very bad at and then the other thing is Having male confidence. was like no, you never hear dude in that game. Like I'm so bad. Ono Undying. They're just like almost. Everybody and then even if their garbage that was still their attitude, so I'm just trying to get this attitude of like. Yeah, I'm going to go kill people instead of like I'm sorry I'm in your game. So that's. What I need for protein puzzle. Is that kind of energy like yeah. I'M GONNA. Do this puzzle as You're only playing against yourself. Don't be scared. You've got this J.. You're brilliant. You're brilliant. Andrew Not colorblind, so I think you got. The second part is really helpful one for the. I got questions because I my boy, my boyfriend aboard were made a CBS run the other day, and I told him to get makeup wipes there and I. was like it's Neutrogena. It's a blue package and he brought me back. Anyone who's ever had A. Very you brought me back. This permits. Bourboule and I was like. I'm trying another thing. I'm trying to not nit pick because I do that a lot and I always have a note on everything and I imagine. That's very annoying. I now shut up and so I'm working on it so I haven't said anything to him about it, but I thought and I'm like. I bet he thinks that's blue. Do! You think he thinks that blue.

"Woman who had owned him as a piece of property who had? Define his life. As a piece of Chattel and in so many different ways, but yet he embraced her and brought her in and cared for her, and even though for example she wouldn't eat at the table with them, you know. Just cared for her allowed her to. Live and so to me that that story just touches me because you know, he could've slammed the door on her face. You know literally and figuratively and he didn't. The civil war began its end on April ninth eighteen, sixty five. When Union soldiers entered Charleston the first soldiers to arrive were African American. Many of them have been forced to work in the city earlier in their lives, and now they'd returned deliberated. The period known as reconstruction, attempted to bring the southern states back into the union and attempted to correct the inequities of slavery. When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, the reconstruction effort was left in the hands of vice president. Andrew Johnson, who said white men alone must manage the south. Robert smalls became active in politics. He wrote legislation to create the first public school system for the State of South Carolina which is often said to be the first free compulsory statewide public school system in the country. He was elected to the south. Carolina House and Senate and was elected to the US House of Representatives where he served numerous terms. By Eighteen, seventy, seven about two thousand African American men had held public office in former confederate states. Over the decades to come the state governments dial back the rights and freedoms. african-americans had been granted during reconstruction. Jim, crow laws legalized segregation. Confederate monuments began to be installed across the country, not just in the south. And Robert Smalls Watch is opportunities for equality were taken away one after another. I think about. Just, the the struggles that he must have experienced as reconstruction was dying, as we were going back to a period where. African Americans black. People had little to no rights. Were stripped of their. Ability to vote to participate in in society in a meaningful way. And you know he had been out. There is one of the major. Personalities. Really, warriors around justice throughout his life, and so I can only imagine that he must have been just completely disheartened. There are quotes of his from one of the last constitutional conventions I think the last one that he participated in. That actually. Put, the gym Co laws into effect and. Recast Society back as in sort of. A white supremacist. Told And You know he he's one of the quotes that He. Said was my race needs no special defense for the past history of them in this nation. Leads everyone to believe that they can compete with anyone anywhere all they need equal chance in the battle of life. That line engraved on a statue of Robert smalls that sits in the cemetery of the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Beaufort. He's buried there and a marker describes how he liberated himself and his family on May thirteenth eighteen, sixty two. He's May thirteenth a special day for your family. That is a great question because for me. I always acknowledged as my personal independence day. Of course July Fourth, National Independence Day and and and. Look I think as an african-american. One could always question the relevance of that day because. July fourth seventeen, seventy, six or You know the. The relevance of that Independence Day. It really didn't have any relevance for people of African descent to in Slave Frederick. Douglass has a an amazing speech about that day, but for for my family. May Thirteenth is our Independence Day. It is the day when you know that we commemorate when Robert. Sort of pull this plan together and. and. Execute it with with boldness with with. APLOMB WITH DASS ITY and and won his freedom. So yeah, that's A. It's a very important day. As white people like me, think about history. And think about what stories are celebrated and taught in school, stories of bravery, stories of fighting for your independence and which stories you aren't taught, you know I'm struck that I've never heard of Robert smalls, a man who really accomplished. But seems to be just. Such a such a big feet. Agree. I mean I I always I grew up. Outside of Boston and I got a very new England centric view of history pretty much that if it didn't happen north of say, Washington, DC really wasn't important. And of course, that's ridiculous. But I also as I got. I came to realize that history is is less of a literal recitation of what happened and much more of a tool of social. Construction it's it's you know history. Is You know they say is told by Victor. And and I think that's that's true Robert First of all. He was persona, non grata as mentioned in the south and so. Even, here in Charleston South Carolina and the city, where he. Started his historical sort of a career. Let's say. This story is still. Somewhat muted. In of course, someone like Paul Revere. Learn about. So often and I I remember as a young child thinking. That that was cool, what he did that was cool, but that wasn't. What Robert Smalls. Did you know so and again? Obviously I couldn't be more biased, but yeah. I think it's an amazing story it's it's an amazing American story if if we can. Be Broad enough to consider that African American history is in fact American history then. This is among the best of them.

He thought that he could continue impersonating the ship's captain until they were out of range of the confederate cannons. They might be safe. He knew that there was a fleet of union ships further out in the waters off Charleston any plan to approach them and ask for help once. He believed he was beyond the range. She veered south to this union blockade. And he started sailing toward. the USS on word, which was the lead boat and the Federal Blockade. They are outside the mouth and. One of the Robert was very careful, knew all the details planned everything except there was one detail that he had forgotten and. Here, it is at this point was probably I don't know maybe four five o'clock in the morning. Maybe the Sun was just starting or the. Early light was just starting to peak over the horizon and here is this large one of the largest boats? In the harbor. With this enormous confederate flags sailing toward the. Federal Blockade and so obviously that could have created quite a problem, but luckily Robert's wife. Hannah, my great great grandmother had thought to so together some white sheets, and so they quickly lowered the confederate flag. Raise the white. Flag of surrender as they approached the US as on word, and as they approached the onward, the store as a stories go. The Union the military folks who were manning the Veon were there were just in amazement. As you know, this large boat comes with this. Crew of of black people. You know the General Conception of what? Black people could do was extraordinarily limited. You know let's let's remember that a narrative had to be created for this country to do the things that it did to enslave people. The narrative was that they were less than human. They were not intelligent that they will be that they were. Violent aggressive while these kinds of things and so. You know at this point here is this. Enormous confederate boat, coming with this crew of enslaved people it just you know it shocked not only the the officers, and the the folks from the Union there, but it made enormous news up and down the east coast. And they were free. Robert smalls reportedly said to the captain of the onward. Delivering this war material including these canons. I think uncle, Abraham Lincoln can put them to good use. I've often thought like as they were stepping off the planter an onto the on word. Just. What must they have felt? It was common. I'm sure every enslaved person. In the country dreamed at one point or another being free, but how many actually have the opportunity to actually? Do something about that and Robert. Audacity really to. To do this. And you know he was free and again. I mean just what they must have felt. As they stepped their first steps of freedom onto this union boat, it must have been incredible. You won't be surprised that that. The story was received differently. In the north, and it wasn't the South and the North Robert was. Really that the story was was was enormous news. It was great news. It was joyous. This Robert was taken to the north, and there were parades and celebrations for him up and down the east. Coast Washington Philadelphia New York Boston and he was really received as a as a hero us one of the first real heroes of the civil war. Obviously in the south, there was a little bit of a different. Reception you know. There was a bounty put on his head. He was persona non grata. He had really. Embarrassed the confederacy because again, the conception was was that. Enslaved people, black people were akin to be suburban in terms of their ability to. Think strategically into. Execute, sort of high level kinds of reasoning and thinking and planning, and so Robert Really called all of that into question. A few months later, Robert Smalls traveled to Washington and met with President Lincoln in person. The story of what Robert Smalls had done is partly credited with persuading President Lincoln to allow African Americans to enlist in the Union army. And Robert Smalls went back to South Carolina to serve as the naval pilot. This unique ability to. Envision realities for himself to think about things to dream about things actually make those things happen for himself, but then to extend those things to his family, and then to fight for others to do that, and so he did that in this instance he actually went back into the crucible of the war back into the heart things, and and worked with the the Union as the pilot of this boat, a planter, the same vessel that he used to. To free himself, and so he moved back to to the low country here of South Carolina. And and to make a long story. Short Robert became the first African American to command the United States. Vessel? As a result of some heroics that he he executed. They're fighting for the union during the civil war. That must have been i. mean the fact that He. To sail this ship that he had once been forced to work on now, as as the commander of it, I can't imagine the thought of that. Yeah I. I think there was real poetry to it to be honest mean. He did. Spectacular things and it was at a time when there was a lot to be done, and so he he stepped up. And did a lot. Robert Smalls bought the house on Prince Street in Beaufort where he and his mother had once been enslaved, and so live there he and Hannah my grandmother. And others live there, and after the civil war, the wife of his former master. Came to the house, she was both physically and mentally ill, and she thought she was going home.

"Robert was was born in enslaved person in eighteen, thirty nine in Beaufort South Carolina. He was born to a mother who was a domestic for their master in their family was born in a little shack behind the big house, so to speak. He was born on a day that. There was a hanging going on and slave person was being executed, and the whole town left, and so his mother, who was in her mid forties when she gave birth. Delivered on the floor of the shack by herself. And I've always kind of. Just thought about that I can't imagine giving birth in eighteen, thirty nine in your mid forties by yourself on the floor, but such as how Robert came into this world. His? Mother's name was Lydia polite. She was born enslaved and worked in the home of man named John McKee. Helped raise seven children including his youngest son Henry. When! John McKee died. Henry McKee inherited Lydia polite. And? When she gave birth to Her son, Robert Smalls Henry McKee claimed him as property to. and. What's your relationship to Robert Smalls? I am Roberts Great. Great Grandson I. Had the real fortune of growing up with Roberts granddaughter. My grandmother was his granddaughter. Of course. This is Michael Boulware more what I think broadly about the civil war. That's that's kind of abstract kind of thing. It was so long ago, but when I think about Robert Smalls, I think about sort of history as it connects to him. It's a much more tangible kind of a thing because we've had these really long generations and. And so, the history is much more tangible and accessible for me. Michael Boulware Moore says that Robert Smalls is upbringing was somewhat unusual. He and his mother worked in Henry. McKee's huge house on Prince Street in Beaufort South Carolina and lived in a small shack behind it. Robert smalls was able to stay with his mother much longer than many enslaved children were. Slavery obviously was a business and at the first opportunity that a young child could be put to work in any kind of meaningful way. They were taken from their mother and. Put torque but Robert because he lived with his mother, as a domestic had an opportunity to grow up with her, and to receive the benefit of her love and nurturing. All accounts was obviously he was very smart precocious. She often got in trouble because he He bucked against the rules for enslaved people. It it as the story goes, he was very distraught for example at the fact that he could not go to school that he couldn't be taught to read and write. When in the evening when the whistle or the bell was sounded as a curfew for enslaved people, he often rebelled against going in on that, and often found himself getting into trouble, but he was young, he was. He was precocious he. Had An opportunity to taste. Freedom or at least to observe it from afar freedom. In a way that that the vast majority of enslaved people couldn't and that, always, I believe stuck in his mind. When Robert Smalls was twelve years old Henry McKee. Send him to work in Charleston about fifty miles from his mother in Beaufort. In eighteen fifty one year before Robert arrived, nearly half of the population of Charleston was made up of enslaved men, women and children. have been one of the primary ports for the transatlantic slave trade. When Robert Smalls I arrived in Charleston he worked as a waiter at a fancy hotel, and then as a lamp later next as a stevedore loading and unloading cargo from chips. Henry Mckee took almost all the money Robert earned. Robert keep a small portion for himself. When Robert smalls was seventeen. Henry McKee gave him permission to get married. An enslaved woman named Hannah Jones. And had my great grandmother. Elizabeth is first. Child is first daughter, and so that really the family piece really. Drove a lot of his motivations and his thinking, as it does for all young parents, certainly, but I think for him the idea that his family could be taken from him could be sold away at any moment was something that really vexed him that really bothered him in a in a very dramatic kind of away and had freedom on his mind. He wanted to figure out a way to protect his family. The first thing he did actually was, he went and negotiated with his wife's master to buy their freedom. A man named Samuel Kingman owned Hannah, and her child with Robert Their daughter Elizabeth. Samuel Kingman told Robert that he would be willing to sell him his wife and their daughter for eight hundred dollars when Robert worked on the on the docks, he actually was able to keep I. Don't know like a dollar or a week or something. Sending the rest of his wages down to his master and Beaufort. And with that money he bought. Various Tobacco Candy Fruit and he sold that on the docks and he was actually quite quite good, quite entrepreneurial. And he actually put down a hundred dollar down payment on the life of his his family. I think that he was able to say every penny he ever made selling various things on the dachshund collected that hundred dollars and put the down payment down. They knew it would take years to save enough. And, even if they did raise the money Robert himself was still enslaved by Henry McKee Beck in Beaufort. MFN Hannah and Robert had their second child a son. They named Robert Junior. They thought Samuel kingman would increase the price beyond reach that was in February of eighteen sixty one. The next month in March of eighteen, sixty one Abraham, Lincoln took office. In April confederate soldiers fired the first shots of the civil war firing at Fort, sumter. A union held siefert just off the coast of Charleston. By June Henry? McKee had sent Robert Smalls to work on confederate ship. One hundred and fifty foot side wheel steamship called the planter. It was one of the newest and fastest ships in the area. He started as a deck hand. Then he was promoted to what was called a willman meaning. He navigated the sandbars and shallow water of Charleston Harbor. The planter had a crew of ten. Three white confederate officers the Captain First Mate an engineer. The rest of the crew were enslaved men. The white officers weren't supposed to leave the ship. They're supposed to sleep on board. But Robert Smalls noticed that they'd come and go often staying away overnight. The enslaved crew members had to stay behind on the ship. One night. Someone put the captain's hat on Robert Smalls head as.

No no success for that year it is time to turn my attention to the next season and go all in on that one. Maybe that's a flaw in my in my thinking a couple we got a couple of hashbrowns here. So let's get. Let's get Kyle in here to ask them and we'll try to answer the quickly. Get everybody out there. We got a pair here. Jerome up I you know. Bogus Shark cashed in her keeper League. Man I just wrote those words on Kessler about an hour ago before the show started and I went very bold in the brewer report which I think is coming out next week. I I write them a week in advance because I I plan and I. I'm like Kesslers Yours. Going to be the best second baseman fantasy like next year. He's going to be better than today and could morte. Everybody that said I think Bovis shed is the better keeper which is going to sound weird. Basically what I'm saying is that I think Bovis shouldn't kissing era when we're doing our show next February. I think we're talking about these guys. Third round picks both of them but was going to be a fantasy monster. I envisioned in a full season next year in batting three hundred with a hunter runs scored eighteen runs in thirty two steals and Kissinger kind of the reverse. He about three hundred with thirty. Two run eighteen steals. These are fantasy monsters for the next decade kesselman bogus. Shed who I'm thinking I'm going to be like third or fourth round.

"Those well. This is about learning about friendship about fitting in about just having a good time over the summer. Getting into some trouble. That is not serious trouble miniatures. It is a fun movie and I think the movie holds up It is timeless in that way. You're killing me. Smalls is my favorite line. You hear it all the time and like you said the great hand beano so let's go through. The three categories artistically was actually a good movie Did a tell a story that we enjoy was entertaining? In a motive. I think in that sense June. Would you agree that it does hold up as good movie? Artistically would say it's trying to be kids movies so I think you have to judge within that context in terms of its quality and as a kid movie hundred percent holds up right. I think kids watching it today. It'll feel relevant. It'll feel relevant as a kids movie until the end time because baseball's baseball and like you know kids playing baseball out of New York. Presumably is not going to change over the course of the ensuing decades or whatever as Fr from like a from a creative standpoint. I think bad news bears better as a movie as for both kids and adults. I think bad news bears has been more of an adult perspective in there that allows it to age a little bit better as you as you grow up when your kid you can watch. Bad News bears one way as an adult. You can watch different way. I think Santa kind of only consistently holds that twelve year olds perspective which I thought was a really good point. You know the thing that I thought was really good about the Sandlot was that it makes the stakes of the movie like that of a twelve year old know when the whole one pepper corn seen like the stakes of that is dramatized. Like you are twelve years old and I really really appreciate it that you know when you're years old that has that kind of stakes and that kind of terror and it really kind of as a kid movie again. It really does then so for that reason. I think it really does holds up. I think it's one of those movies that you know. I'm probably going to show my kids one day and it's probably going to live on as as that kind of thing especially because you know it's become a pop cultural touchdown so artistically good timelessness good but technically. Tristan and the other category here as a baseball movie. Is this believable It didn't have a ton of baseball mean. Baseball is the core of their summer playing baseball. But when the new kid comes in and he's looking to be friends and he's not a good baseball player and his dad is kind of out there. A comedian like not funny in the movie leary You know like you feel for the kid. I it's emotional. We want him to have friends when he steals father's baseball signed by the greatest baseball player ever that he doesn't know he's never heard of Babe Ruth he thinks it's actually a woman that's a problem. And then when he hits home run and loses the ball and they spend half the movie trying to get back from this mean dog the piece it almost becomes not a baseball movie at that point and then the scene where the dog is chasing the guy around town. That's a problem so I think it's believable to a point it is. Yeah and you raise good points especially about the race through town. Nobody gets tired right now. I mean and let's face it. Dogs are a little bit quicker than we are as humans. Even as kids. I felt like the main character was a little bit too exaggerated and how incompetent he was that baseball and the lack of knowledge. I mean the smallest thing is when one of our questions to any knowledge of that at all everything was taken to its dramatic extreme and again this ties to what I said before about the living. The life from the perspective of the twelve year old. Is that everything? Tends to be grossly exaggerated but it makes it harder for us to appreciate it at our age. Now we just can't see it through the eyes of a twelve year old. Have to watch it as a twelve year old. I actually do think June ring back to your point the the fact that you make a baseball game at anything. I think that was one of the things they did very well here. I just question. Do Kids still do that now? I remember.

"Very few people knew Charleston Harbor as well as Robert Smalls. It was one of the busiest ports in the American south and it was impossible for the city of Charleston South Carolina for that matter to survive without it at ports like this ship would come and go bringing goods food and supplies for the city but while the water on the surface of the Charleston harbor all look the same to hazards underneath could only be navigated by someone who truly knew their way around in. These waters in inexperienced pilot could easily wind up with the damage boat. Find himself run aground or worse. Suffer a capsized ship and sunk in goods. Robert smalls had more experience than most in any boat was safe with his hand on the wheel. It was eighteen sixty two the second year of the American civil war. South Carolina had been the first of several states to secede from the Union in order to preserve the institution of slavery in that state. They was to be a part of the United States of America no longer. They left to begin a new country. The confederate states of America South Carolina was eventually followed by ten other states in attempting to leave the union. The United States government led by Abraham Lincoln would not recognize the new offshoot republic and did everything in its power to stop it. This includes surrounding Charleston Harbor and a blockade. The blockade was made up of several ships forming a ring around the city off the shore in the Atlantic Ocean. These union ships state far enough away to be out of range of cannon fire but still tried to stay close enough to the city and each other so as to catch any boats. Coming or going many of the confederates ship still made it through. A smaller ship was more agile and could slip through the blockade at night or time. It just right and thread the needle between the two bigger slower ships but for the most part the union ships created a problem for the confederates and citizens of Charleston. Robert smalls knew this and was planning to steer. The confederate ship called the planter. Straight to them. It was a dangerous attempt in many ways but hanging in the balance his freedom and the freedom of his family failure was not an option. Robert smalls had lived on the McKee plantation. Where he'd been enslaved since birth his mother. A woman named Lydia polite had been enslaved there as well as he was growing up. Robert was typically treated with favour compared to the other enslaved people on the plantation others did not enjoy the leniency. He received the boy spent so much time in the House on the property that his mother worried he might not truly understand the horrors of slavery. She made arrangements for him to spend time in the fields to see and experience the endless toils of the people around him. She made sure he was witnessed to unfair inhumane punishments that were a regular part of the life of the enslaved on the plantation. These memories would remain with Robert for his lifetime by his adult years. Robert was working away from the plantation. He was still legally owned by his master and as the laws of the time allowed. Robert was required to pay his owner. Most of his salary earned with his labors. Roberts saved a little money that was left over in hopes of purchasing freedom for himself his wife and his children at the rate he was working. It was unlikely he would be able to save even enough money to buy their freedom in his lifetime. The slave system was cruel and unfair. One of his first jobs have been as a lamp lighter on the streets of Charleston before electrcity flow through wires to power. The lamps brighten the streets. It took a person to bring light to the darkness. Mo- sliders of the time would walk the streets with a long stick at the end of which was a quick at dusk. He'd make the rounds to each of the lantern polls on corners inbetween city blocks lighting the tall gas lanterns as the sun. Rose he'd make the same path this time with the snuff or on a long stick to extinguish the flames inside each public light from there. His next job would take him to the Waterside of harbor he worked as a shormon unloading the cargo ships next. He worked as a sailmaker and then eventually began working on the boats themselves. His Intelligence and Great Mechanical Instincts helped him eventually earned position as a Willman essentially a boat pilot. He was one of the best around. The planter was a cotton boat that had been pressed into service for the confederate army. Sometimes with Robert at the wheel it would sneak through the blockade to retrieve gunpowder ammunition or other essentials for the southern soldiers. Robert was not alone. There were several other. Enslaved men is denied their freedom while working against the wheel on board for the confederate army and several of these men noticed something. Robert smalls looked a lot. Like the captain of the planter. Robert agreed he and the confederate captain had the same body type even similar features posture. The biggest difference was the color of their skin. Was the darkness could easily ask what might have begun as a frivolous notion or at least a far fetched idea developed into a serious plan and Robert's mind on the night of May twelfth eighteen sixty two. The plan became reality when the captain and crew disembarked to spend the night on shore just a few steps away from the dock ship Robert and the other enslavement stayed on board the boat. There must have been nervous. Scopes DEPRESSED OR wringing hands but if the tension was high Robert couldn't show it he put on a uniform jacket the captains and Donde Straw hat that was favored by the captain is well positioned at the wheel. He Mimic the captain's posture with his own body. The others fired up the boilers to power. The engine and he steered the boat out into the harbor. Within eyesight of the captain's window being discovered would be a terrible turn of events for the escaping men but so far so good before heading out to see the planter made a single stop at another war farther down the bank. No-one on shore had discovered this ship was stolen yet. Docked at the wharf shadowy figures quietly carefully stepped out onto the wooden planks and crossed over to board the Moonlit Boat. They were women men and children the families of Robert and the other slave boatman risking everything to escape to freedom in the harbour there were checkpoints where watchful eyes kept tabs on ships coming and going if discovered their punishments would have been extreme and they knew it as they approached. Robert did everything he could to look like the captain. He folded his arms the same way pace the deck the same way and not of the straw hat on his head. The seventeen passengers eager for freedom and terrified of being discovered. Were not as cool as he won later. Reported when we drew near Fort Sumter every man. But Robert Smalls feltus knees give way and the women begin crying and praying for after the exact site of the civil wars opening. Hostilities was now the last place confederates might recognize. Something wasn't right on the boat as it passed by but thanks to years of experience piloting confederate boats past the same Fort Robert New the signal that expect to hear he'd give the signal one last time if they were lucky. The passengers aboard the planner with set out for the open sea. Not long after. He blew the steam whistle three times too long. And One Short. The planter passport sumpter left the confederacy behind without incident. Safety was still no guarantee now. They were approaching union ships before sunrise and a confederate boat. None of the fugitive were sure they would have made it this far but if they expected the worse they plan for the. Best Robert's wife had brought with her white bed. She wants out of sight of Fort Sumter. The people on board pulled down the confederate and South Carolina flags from the ship's Poland hoisted a white bedsheet in their place. It was a flag of surrender and they prayed. The union ships would see it before they opened. Fire on the planter. There was a good chance. They would identify the planter as a confederate ship. Trying to run the blockade was again but a good word for Robert to take according to the neighbor reports of the incident a ship called the USS Onward. Caught SIGHT OF THE PLANTER. Just as the sun began to rise the navy men on board opened the portholes and had cannons position to fire with someone on board explained that they saw something that looked like a white flag. They held their fire in a short while. Roberts rendered the ship to the Union army. He and his family were free once again. Robert had brought light to the darkness. And he do so for the rest of his life. Americans were captivated by the story of the men and women on board. The planter and Robert Smalls was granted a meeting with Edwin Stanton Lincoln Secretary of war until that point Lincoln and his officials have been unwilling to allow Black Americans to enlist as union soldiers. Robert smalls at something to do with them changing their minds and when Lincoln passed a measure months later smalls is said to have recruited five thousand men to join the union on his own smalls was given a reward by the Union. In for the boat he had recovered from the confederacy in the years. After the war he actually used that money to buy the very home his former master had owned Robert smalls went onto a significant career in politics being elected to the US House of Representatives. For five terms he died in nineteen fifteen and the very same house he had been born as a slave in which he could then proudly call his own. His memory is precious to his community still and his advocacy for African. Americans was a light in the darkness of the racism. They faced after the civil war. Robert knew the truth all his life. All my people need is an equal chance and the battle of life.

"Others copy. Heine Volvo. So what you're telling me. There's twenty nine days in February twenty twenty. I just don't think there's any science. Oh it's all science. Oh No we're on. Hey everybody my name is mixed Ullivan and this is the past and the curious. Thank you for joining us. I'm excited to welcome if you friends to the show in the first story you're going to hear a little bit of dust and barons voice along with a whole lot of his mandolin playing. It's a fun story about the Harlem Globetrotters who weren't from Harlem at all you'll also hear the story of Robert Smalls. Who was an incredible man with an incredible story? The voice you'll hear telling that story belongs to my friend. Germaine Fowler. Germain is based in my hometown of Louisville Kentucky and has a podcast called the humanity archive for parents and advanced listeners. It's a really thoughtful and well researched look at some big people in big moments which asks some big questions and personally. I'm a big Fan so I'm glad he's here. Just a reminder that the one hundred forty four th anniversary of the strange event called the Kentucky Meat Shower is coming up on March third of. You're looking for a way to celebrate with me. I'm GonNa do a live reading on. Facebook live that day March third at seven. Pm Eastern Standard Time. I'll have more details at the end of the show and also on facebook. The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children.

"War. They actually gave the same physical office. It was in the back of the Bill. Yeah, let's just say it was separately. Robert Smalls died of malaria and diabetes at the age of seventy five because he was too bad ass to die of just one debilitating malady. He was buried in his family's plot and Beaufort, South Carolina, and is Margaret was in grave with a statement he made to the South Carolina legislature in eighteen ninety-five quote. My race needs no special defense for the past history of them in this country proves them to be the equal of any people anywhere. All they need is an equal chance in the battle of life and quote, virtue signaling. You know he, he might have lived even longer white people just invented Wilford Brindley early. No, it is all this others point to him and say that guy beat us. I knew that was gonna get heat. Pawn and early nineties TV reference. Yeah. And I know that I should probably end this on the Spiring quote and all, but there's one little detail of this story that I absolutely love. So I say for less when he moved back to South Carolina, he needed a place to say. So he bought a house in Beaufort at five, eleven print streets. Yes. Apparently the previous owner hadn't been paying taxes to the US government for four years or so. And the government sees the property, the property owner even sued to get the property back. But ultimately the court side, it was Smalls and he ended up raising the family that he'd freed in the house. He was born and slaved in. I'm not saying that he should buckle white woman in every room of that house. He showed a white woman. No. If you had to summarize what you learned in one sense other than that guy should fuck. Well, it be. I've written here, Robert small should the white woman that house exploded that Jews. Are you ready for the quiz? Sure. Why not? All right. I'll go first at some point. The confederate navy was just asking for. So what's right stunned prevent this from happening. Hey, hey, maybe if the ship hadn't been dressed like that. Void sailing dark passages at night. See those three white guys had Madrid off ship. Watch out for black guys. Panama, those Noah. All right. Yeah, I was was way more prepared for racism than sexism this week. Women are going with in the house and Robert Smalls house, they're all going with the deep. So there you go. Black guy. Please proceed, Eli. Oh, don't someone says he's wrong or. He's right. I always go to early and you guys yell? Yeah. Oh, yeah. Right. No. Who were some other African American civil rights? Activists who story has a happy ending. I'm asking, I can't think of literally any. I would like. D. none of the correct? Correct. All right. This story was made into a movie, what was it called? A uncle Tom's cabin boy. Twelve years wave. See birth of a nation and birth. There is spelled with an e. audience. Or d. black boaty. All right. Well, I feel like I'm not going to feel good about myself repeating any of those, but only one of those movies is a crime against humanity even before the pun. So I'm gonna go with a. Right. Absolutely. All right, Noah. In addition to ride the boat, they willingly give you which of the following methods was also successful for escaping. Slavery. Thanks to the American South being run by cartoon rhino. Hey, lady, rabbit mustache and. If you guys can read this turnover, you just got tricked by a black guy turnover. See the above ground railroad. Railroad or d, former slave owner says, what. Oh, okay. This is a tough one. All right. It can't be because lady rabbits don't have mustaches. It can't be because confederate soldiers couldn't read. I think it can't be deep because Southern's talk to slow to make the so and so says what thing works. So I'm gonna go see by process of elimination at is correct though. It's no, no, no, that's not you with. The best thing about actually section is the legitimate.
