Fresh update on "sutton" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"I'm Brett O 'Neill. Good evening, I'm Brennan Hazleton. Here are the top local stories we're following for you tonight. He's been accused of sexual harassment and bullying by dozens of school staff. Now an independent investigation finds a middle school principal in our area did engage in misconduct. Let's get details now from WTOP's Kate Ryan. The Office of the Inspector General for Montgomery County found that Beidelman, Joel then a principal at Farquhar Middle School, violated sexual harassment policies and engaged in misconduct while on the job. The investigation found that Beidelman made repeated comments about the appearance female of subordinates, made offensive comments and jokes of a sexual nature, and had a sexual relationship with a woman he supervised. The report found that Beidelman's conduct made staff members worry about job their security and that many felt intimidated. Montgomery County Schools Superintendent Monifa McKnight said following the Inspector General's report, she'll be quote, moving forward without delay to ensure that wrongdoing is held to account. The next report from the Inspector General still underway will focus on how the school system handled complaints about Beidelman. Claims about Beidelman's conduct were first reported by the Washington Post. Kate Ryan, WTOP News. New tonight for the second time in a month, a Montgomery County Middle School teacher has been put on administrative leave over social media posts described as anti -Semitic. To become a Park Middle School teacher, Angela Wolf is on leave tonight, over posts she made to Facebook about the Israel -Hamas War, she heads the English Language Development Department at that school. In a letter to parents, Principal Erin Martin says she's saddened and disappointed by the contents the of posts and that she strongly condemns them. WTOP has not seen the posts, but did reach out to Wolf, who declined to comment. Last month Tilden Middle School teacher Breena Khan -Williams was placed on leave over Facebook posts that the school system called anti -Semitic in nature. It's 905, a DC man found guilty of posing as a federal cop has been ordered to spend more than two and a half years behind bars. Prosecutors say 41 -year -old Arian Tahirzadeh was trying to curry favor with members of the Secret Service, and to lease several luxury apartments for which he then failed to pay any rent. Tahirzadeh was also sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay more than $700 ,000 in restitution. A co -conspirator, 36 -year -old Haidra Ali of Springfield, was sentenced earlier to more than five years behind bars. A silver spring man has been found guilty of murdering another man at a home they both lived in. A jury today convicted 24 -year -old Andre Moore of first -degree murder. Police say what apparently started as an argument between Moore and 40 -year -old Michael Michael Sutton in the Hillandale neighborhood ended with more shooting Sutton to death. This was in January of Moore in 2021. Prosecutors call the shooting another case of senseless deadly violence involving an illegal Ghostgun. Moore faces the potential of life in prison when he's sentenced in February. Well, they say it's helped them close cases and make this community safer. Now Fairfax County Police are expanding this license plate reader program. Police Lieutenant Hudson It's all based on need, so we're going to look at what communities are being affected by crime. Since the program launched last November, Bull says the devices have helped recover stolen cars and solved hundreds of cases. Including a recent one. A man was exposing himself to young kids in the Mount Vernon district. We were able to solve that crime by using license plate reader technology and the partnership the with neighboring agency. As for privacy concerns, Bull explains the county reduced the data retention period from a year to 30 days, and he attributes this to the devices too. We've been able to locate 20 critically missing persons who have left their home in a vehicle. At Fairfax County Public Safety headquarters, Scott Gelman, WTOP News. 907, a small dog gets stuck in an unlikely place at her home in our area, but she is safe now thanks to first responders. Maya, a 17 -year community. You can obviously see her first responders from the Fairfax County police and fire departments tried to get her out, but face a little drilling in the basement. Ceiling panel came off and out. Maya came reunited with her owner. Fairfax County Police posted the video of the rescue and reunion on social media. Shaina Stewart, WTOP News.

"Welcome to the UltraFlex football podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football, getting straight to it today. Got lots to talk about. I'm your host Anthony Sutton. With me is Rob Green. Good morning, evening, afternoon, whatever it is for you. And Ryan Wheeler. Howdy everybody. So this week we have our album. First I gotta ask you guys a question though. Alright. I want you to say the first thing that comes to your mind. Alright. What's the opposite of a waffle? A pancake. Gosh damn it. Alright. I guess I lose that one then. I had an argument with my wife. What was the right answer? I don't know. She said the opposite of a waffle is a pancake and I was like that's not the opposite of a waffle. There's no opposite to waffle. Like an anti -waffle would be the opposite of a waffle. But a pancake isn't the opposite. I said what about French toast? And she said no it'd be a pancake. But you guys both said pancake so I'm wrong. French toast? It was second though. It was like pancake and I was like ooh French toast. Oh. Okay. I mean I think of like if I go to IHOP and they're like hey we're out of waffles. I'm like okay I'll take a pancake. Now here's another thing. I'll take French toast. So we have a pancake mix that we use and there's also a waffle recipe on the back of it. So you can make either with the pancake mix. So to me it kind of is the opposite if you think of it that way. That's one or the other. See that's backward logic. That's backwards logic to me. That means that you can make the same thing out of that stuff. Yeah but it's not the same because you have to add, no because you add oil and eggs to make the waffle. Pancake is just the pancake mix. I know. I know but it's alright I digress. I'm wrong apparently but I hope that somebody out there either said French toast or they say there's no way that's the opposite so I'm not alone here. Anyway we have Carrie Underwood's album this week titled Some Hearts. I believe it was 2005. I didn't check honestly. Yeah. My bod on that. My bod. I'm bad on that. Your bod. There's that accent coming out. My bod. So my songs are Wasted, Don't Forget to Remember Me, Some Hearts, Jesus Take the Wheel, and The Night Before. Rob what do you got? Lessons learned before he cheats starts with goodbye. I just can't live a lie. We're young and beautiful. I've got That's Where It Is, Whenever You Remember, I Ain't in Shakota Anymore, and Inside Your Heaven. So we'll work those in and yeah let's get to it. Unfortunately we do have to talk about football. It's a rough week for Bills but let's get to football talk. Real quick I'll get Ryan's take on this is Wednesday evening I guess and the Titans announced that they're gonna start Levis next week or I guess this week. Initial thoughts? I'm excited.
Fresh "Sutton" from WTOP 24 Hour News
"Beacon House for over 30 years Beacon House has provided high quality after school programming in Northeast Washington D .C.'s Edgewood neighborhood Beacon House has helped hundreds of children graduate from high school with a plan for their future.

Jury convicted at 24 year old Andre Moore of first degree murder for the shooting death of 40 year old Michael Sutton. Prosecutors say Moore shot Sutton in the back of the neck during a fight in January, again in 2021. It happened inside the silver spring home the two men both lived in. Moore will be sentenced in temporary. 35 years behind bars, that is the sentence for a DC man convicted in connection with a shooting at a Chevy Chase restaurant last year. 30 year old David Brown was found guilty of attempted manslaughter, assault, and gun crimes. Prosecutors say it was about a year ago that Brown got into an argument with a woman at Clyde's restaurant. Eventually they say he shot one person outside and hit another with the gun. As all this happened, people in the restaurant started running in panic. Brown will also serve five years of supervised probation after completing his prison sentence. There is discouraging news tonight about the number of traffic related deaths in the district. As WTOP's Liz Anderson tells us, it seems the numbers are going in the wrong direction. DC started its Vision Zero campaign

"Instead of fucking pulling your kids out of a car. All right, and that is Metallica James Hetfield to send them one of my hats. I don't know if you got it or not, but I sent it to one of their recording studios, California. The only one I know that they have, this is Ian Trottier here, folks, for discussions of truth. I'm going to give you a monologue, if you will, today. It's just me, no guests. It's been a while here since I have released a podcast. People ask me all the time, left and right. I blow people away with some of the knowledge that I have, and they ask me, Ian, when did you start uncovering the deep state? When did you start looking into this? It's very simple, it's very easy. 2016, Miami Beach, the Zika virus. A good friend of mine who's no longer with us, fortunately passed away the fall of 2019. David got me looking into the Zika virus. Wow, that has been four years now that David's been gone. David got me looking into the Zika virus and the pesticide. As I began digging down the road, of course, it's not even cliché, really. It was the Rockefeller Foundation involved in the Zika virus and also the pesticide. I was quickly turned on to Anthony Sutton, who is a Stanford Hoover Fellow. He was writing about the corruption in the Federal Reserve. I then found him talking about the Hegelian dialectic, which is essentially how the Rothschild made their fortune over centuries, creating and controlling conflict in Europe. It was pretty simple. Those are the dots that I've connected. You can certainly agree with them or not, but some of these things are simply not contestable. If you take, for instance, and this is something that I commonly tell people. I have them, and you can do it right now if you're listening to me. Just go to Google, go to Yahoo, whatever it may be, and type in U .S. Grand Union flag. Now open up another browser and type in British East Indies Company flag. What you have there, folks, is the same flag, which means no taxation without representation. The British East Indies Company, which was bringing in tea into the Boston Harbor, that ended up being who actually funded the American Revolution. This is fact. You can cross -check it. George Washington owned shares in the British East Indies Company. In fact, Elihu Yale, if you go down the Skull and Bones Road, which is what Anthony Sutton will take you down, Elihu Yale was a principal shareholder of the British East Indies Company. The Skull and Bones Society, otherwise connected to the Illuminati out of Bavaria, is nothing more than a secret society that's linked to the Vatican. These are secret societies which are meant to essentially invade society on the local level. That's essentially what that ends up being. Eric John Phelps is a historian based out of Pennsylvania that I commonly and frequently allude to. I invited him to the Take Back Oregon event that I principally was principal in organizing last month. Hopefully those folks like to get a movement going again for those folks. That state needs a lot of help. The country needs help. But I invited Eric John Phelps to that rally. He was unable to attend. But what Eric John Phelps will tell you is he, of course, he's religious. He goes down that religious road. What's the cornerstone of the U .S. Constitution? Well, it is religious freedom. The Mayflower set sail, I think it was from Dartmouth, landed on Plymouth Rock. Dartmouth in England, they set sail seeking religious freedom. That is the principle, that is the cornerstone for the creation of what later became known as the United States. And that is why this country exists today, really because of those religious freedom fighters from England. I'm going to read an article for you that I wrote. Of late, I'm using two platforms to release my writings. Go right now to Tryon Day Publishing. Go to Tryon Day or Books a Million and order my book. It took me over four years to write that book. I call it Freedom Reserve, No More Lies. Please order the book. It's on presale. It's been on presale now for a couple of years. But Chris is going to take his time to publish it. He's going to publish it when he gets around to it. It's a small publishing house, Chris. Tryon Day Publishing is a small publishing house. They published work for Sean Stone, Oliver Stone's son. He's published Whitney Webb's recent book last year. He's got my manuscript. I have an agreement. He'll publish it. Please order it. Please do that. It's called Freedom Reserve, No More Lies, Tryon Day Publishing. In the meantime, I am working on two new book ideas. I'm working on one book. I'm working on two new book ideas. I'm basically working on one book actively and a second book idea. I haven't formatted that yet. In the interim, I've had time to do this. I have in the past couple of weeks, been writing articles. I released them on two different platforms. That yournews is .com.

"Welcome to the UltraFlex Football Podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football. I'm your host, Anthony Sutton. And with me, as always, is Rob Green. What's up? And Ryan Wheeler. I like that dramatic pause you had there. Who were you supposed to be? Anyone in particular? I was just changing it up, you know? Just trying to keep the people guessing. Who's talking? No one knows. Wow, this is an interesting start. Alright, we are doing our, what is it called, Albums for the week. Last week we did the Goo Goo Dolls, Dizzy Up the Girl. This week we're doing Maroon 5, Songs About Jane, their 2002 album. I had that CD. I don't know about you guys. You guys had that CD? Nope. No, I wasn't a CD guy growing up. That was, I was going to say, that was back in the CD days, man. Definitely didn't have that. We're getting old. The only CDs I had were like the now 74s. I did, yeah. I think I had now five. I would say they were probably like single digits back then, but. Yeah. That's when they were cool. Crazy. Alright, so my songs are, Harder to Breathe, This Love, Shiver, She Will Be Loved. Rob, what do you got? What year did you say this was? 2002. 2002. This is that old? Yeah. We were 10. Yeah. Okay. Well, my songs are Tangled, The Sun, Must Get Out, and Sunday Morning. I've got Secret, Through With You, Not Coming Home, and Sweetest Goodbye. See if we can work those in. Unfortunately, last week did not go well for the two teams that we talk about most, but let's get into it with football talk. I guess we usually start with the Bills, and we're going to keep it that way, because they were the morning game, and we had some mimosas, and watch the first half of that game where they played like garbage and did not wake up, so Rob, I'll let you kick it off with the Bills takeaways. A lot of injuries, sleeping first half, losing two games now that they probably shouldn't have. Where do you want to start? Yeah. I just want to say I've been Tangled up with the loss ever since Sunday morning, and thinking I must get out of this funk, and the sun came up this morning, and I'm feeling a little bit better, so I'm moving on to the Giants. I don't even want to talk about the Jaguars game. I don't know about you guys. Did he just knock them all out? Was that all four? What? All four what? What are you talking about? I'm just saying I'm moving on to the Giants game, that's all. Holy crap.

"Welcome to the Ultraflex Football Podcast, where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football and anything else we want to talk about, hahaha. I am your host, Anthony Sutton. And with me, as always, is Rob Green. Hope you're all awake. If you aren't, you are now. And Ryan Wheeler! That was very robotic and beautiful, Anthony. Thank you. You're welcome. You should start everyone like that. I liked it. And you sound kind of like a nerd, and we're kind of nerdy sometimes, so. I like it. You were shy. You're kind of nerdy. Where's your hat today? I don't know, but it's a mess. I got a new setup here. It's just a mess over here. Don't even bother. It's just a mess. We got a new podcast art, a new, what do they call that? Cover art? Logo? And we're all, well, you guys are supposed to be the Buffaloes, and you're both wearing backwards hats. I made sure to put that in there. So way to let down, Tony. All I got to do is be shirtless and have one nipple, because that's what it shows on the, I don't know if you guys noticed that, there's only one nipple on the Titan, dude. He lost it in battle, you know? I'd rather have a backwards hat than one nipple hanging out the entire show. Yeah, me too. I mean, I'm not even worried about the nipple, it's just like uncomfortable having one nipple hanging out. It probably would, yeah, you know when you're like outside. So he's not missing a nipple, there's just one showing. No, he's definitely missing a nipple. Oh, he is missing, okay. It's not just one showing, he's missing the other one. Oh, yeah. All right, that's enough nipple talk for us. Boobies. So to get away from the nipples, we got, this week we have the Goo Goo Dolls. Album is Dizzy Up The Girl. I didn't catch what year that was. Did you guys know what happened to see that? I think it was 1998. 1998. 1998. So we're going to do what we do. We're going to get our song titles into the episode. And if we don't, then we have to do a whole album by ourselves next week and screw the other two over. So my song titles are Dizzy, Slide, Broadway, and January Friend. Rob, what you got? Well, at least you got one that was more than one word. I got Black Balloon, Bulletproof, Am I Gone, and All Eyes on Me. I've got Full Forever, Broadway, Iris, Extra Pale, and Hate This Place. So it'll be fun to get all these in. And then while we're doing that, we're going to talk about some football. So let's go to football talk. In case you noticed or picked up, Tony also has Broadway. We both have Broadway because on the album it says acoustic number three. So he's got the acoustic version. So you have to say Broadway in a very acoustic way, whatever that means. Got it. Football segment, go. I don't know. I'm struggling. I got a new computer. So if you're watching this, I like Extra Pale and I do not enjoy it. But anywho, let's go into week four games last week. Biggest game of the week in our opinion and probably in the league was the Bills and the Dolphins. And we'll talk about the Titans and the Bengals after that. So Rob was at the game. Let him start it off. What'd you see? What'd you like? How was the atmosphere? Go. Is a black balloon like a white flag because that's what the Dolphins were waving come the third quarter. Total domination by the Bills. The crowd was electric. The team was pumped up. It was great. Great atmosphere. Was Hamlin announced pregame? Was he like the last one announced or whatever? No. Apparently my brother -in -law told me this. They are not announcing individual players for the Bills this year at home games. So they just all come out as a team. They don't announce anybody. So no, they did not announce it. I feel like a missed opportunity. I don't know if it's like a unity, like a team unity thing or what, but either way the crowd was loud. Loudest I've heard it. Any, you know, I'll ask Ryan in a second, but any key takeaways from your seats up there? Just a continuing domination of the O -line and D -line or Allen and Diggs or all of the above? All of the above for that game. There really wasn't a whole lot to complain about. Obviously the Trey White injury sucked. Seeing him throw his helmet in frustration after getting hurt was hard to see, especially after just getting back off the ACL, but on the positive end, yeah, I think the Bills dominated both ends, offense and defensive lines, which is nice to see because the last couple of years, they've never really seemed to get both going at the same time. Ryan, any takeaways from the Bills and Dolphins before we jump over to the Titans? The most memorable part of that game for me was the gut -wrenching feeling that you got when Trey White went down and you see him just pounding the ground. He throws his helmet. That whole scene was like tragic, honestly, like the guy just got back and he was playing good again. And then... What did they show on TV? Did they show like all the players lined up? Yes, they showed everyone started going over. That's how we knew it was like something that's not good. Yeah. Yeah, that was awful. I think the Bills did a great job of getting Tua off his first read. And I think that too was kind of a read it and rip it like right away, first read kind of quarterback. And that's the scheme that he's in because they want him to get the ball out of his hands fast. The Bills did a great job of minimizing that. I think he went... He figured it out after a couple of drives, right? I mean, it started out looking like it was going to be a high scoring affair. I mean, it still was 48 to 20, but I wasn't sure if either defense could stop the other team for a while. Yeah. What I get from... I think they dropped them down to like only hitting us first read 50 something percent of the time. But what I get from that game is I wonder if other defenses are going to adopt what the Bills did. I think they used their motions instead of the Dolphins being able to use that quick motion and catching the defenses off guard. I think the Bills were kind of letting that quick motion show them where the play was going. And that's why they were able to cut off the first read most of the time, or half the time. So I think that the Bills might have just put a blueprint out there for other teams to follow. And if that's true, I can't wait to see what happens moving forward with the Dolphins, see if they're going to be a little less explosive. Well, they'll probably still be explosive, but maybe won't put up as many points. I was going to say, you think the Giants can replicate that? A lot of the old Bills coaches and management there, but I don't know. I hope not. I picked the Dolphins in my survivor pool this week because I feel like they're in a bounce back. And I feel like they also, I mean, I think McDaniel even admitted after the game. I think they abandoned the run too soon. But I guess when you get down, what was it, 31 -14 pretty quickly, then you probably almost feel like you have to. So I think my biggest takeaway, and Rob kind of hit it on it, but it was just Allen. I think that was his best game maybe ever. But definitely since the injury last year. So if he can continue to play like that, the Bills will be hard to beat. Do you guys see the stat that Allen has now, five AFC Player of the Weeks against the Dolphins? Yeah, five out of his 11 career are against the Dolphins. Call his daddy.

"Welcome to the Ultra Flex football podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football. I am your host, Anthony Sutton. With me is Rob Green. Hello everyone. And Ryan Wheeler. Howdy everyone. This week we have our album again. And sorry for the really sexy deep voice, I just got my throat dried up right before we started talking there. Hello, hello. I didn't realize we were talking in deep voices today. Sorry, it's like I've been sick, my daughter goes to daycare and brings it home and gives it to us. This week our album is Daydream by Mariah Carey. So I'll just list my songs and then we'll go Rob and then Tony. The songs that I have to get in today are Fantasy, underneath the stars, one sweet day and open arms. Rob, what you got? I got Always Be My Baby, I Am Free, When I Saw You, and Long Ago. I've got Melt Away, Forever, Looking In, and then if you've been around for a while I don't know anything about music, so I've got Daydream Interlude, Stash Fantasy Sweet Dub Mix. Is that all one title? Tony. It's supposed to just be Daydream, I think the interlude is a type of song, am I wrong? I don't know, I'd love to hear him try to say all that. I know, you fit Daydream Interlude, Fantasy Sweet Dub Mix into this song. Got it, alright, easy, easy, well why would it be listed as the title? That's what they do on albums, I'm pretty sure an interlude is something, so it'd be like the Daydream Interlude. Do you want me to google it real quick, do you want me to vet this information right now? No, F it, we'll do it live, you ever see that one, the News Anchor? The what? You ever see the Anchor that says F it, we'll do it live? Yes. That's hilarious. Anywho, we'll work those in throughout, and then we'll talk about football right now, so let's go to football talk. Oh my gosh, it wasn't right. Let's go to football talk. Week three just wrapped up, starting to learn more and more about these teams, trying to learn a little bit who's good, who's not good, who's offense is good, who's offense is not good, and then same thing about the defense, so obviously we're going to talk about the Bills and the Titans to start with, and then kind of go out from there, so last week we started with the Bills, this week we'll start with the Titans. Don't really want to talk about the Titans this week. So what you got for the Titans Ryan, you got any defense about your offensive performance? Dude. See what I did there? Yeah, that was real smooth there. I know that someday in the future there will be one sweet day where the Titans aren't just god awful on offense. Are you sure? I think. That's the only reason, that's what helps me and allows me to continue to be a Titans fan is the hope that someday they'll be exciting to watch on offense. Their defense is usually exciting, but their offense, it's so boring to watch. If I have to watch Tannehill drop back and have the swinging gate left tackle, just here you go Andre Dillard, and we had whatever the heck his name was last year, Dennis Daley, he was somehow, I told myself at the beginning of this year, I said this offensive line can't possibly be worse because Dennis Daley was the worst left tackle in the league, and then Andre Dillard comes out and he's on track to give up like 35 sacks this year through three games. Is that bad? Is that bad by one player? Yeah, that's like twice as bad as Dillard was all at, or actually it might be three times as bad as Dillard was, I'm sorry, Daley was all year last year. I've never even heard of Dennis Daley, I just looked him up because I was curious. He's on the Cardinals now. Is he? Oh, that's unfortunate. I don't know if he's a starter or not, but he is on the Cardinals. Yeah, Cardinals have been playing pretty well, obviously they beat the Cowboys, but even the first two weeks they've been overachieving so far, where the Titans offense is probably underachieving or maybe exactly where you think they were, Ryan Tannehill.

All right. Oh, we got the... Go ahead. No, he's actually like swearing on ESPN now, and he's got like Mike Greenberg, he swore on ESPN now because of McAfee. He's actually... A little more laid back now, huh? Yeah, he wears a tank top. He's very good for ESPN, in my opinion. Go ahead. He's spicing up Disney, huh? I think I saw, didn't they have to put him on like an extra delay versus normal? I mean, I wouldn't be surprised. He has to cut out the F words a little bit, I heard. Someone's got to tell him to stop the cursing. No. Why? That's what makes it fun. I'm like eight song titles through my album here, so. Oh, he's like, damn, you're doing song titles already? Yeah, I thought you had to say him first. Holy moly. All right, well, we're about to find out what your song titles were. So Tony messed up two weeks ago. He didn't get all the song titles in, so now he has an album to himself, but because this is a team sport, a team podcast, Rob and I now have to split apart, or a album between ourselves. So Rob and I have Good Charlotte, The Young and the Hopeless. My songs are A New Beginning, Lifestyle of the Rich and the Famous, Wondering, The Story of My Old Man, Girls and Boys, and My Bloody Valentine. Rob? I don't know, man. I'm not feeling good about this week. This is a lot. Seven songs and a half hour show. All right, I got Hold On, Riot Girl, Say Anything, The Day That I Die, The Young and the Hopeless, Emotionless, and Movin' On. Tony, we're all wondering, what do you have? You have the Spice Girls, my man. And I already, I've gotten already into the pod. I've already gotten Spice Up Your Life, Stop, Never Give Up on Good Times, Move Over, Denying, and Viva Forever. I still need to get in Too Much, Saturday Night Divas, Do It, and The Lady is a Vamp, which will probably be a difficult one. Hold on, can you say that one more time? What was that? The Lady is a Vamp. Like a vampire, assuming? What's a vamp? It's a vampire. And that's from the Spice World album. 1997 made me feel old AF. 97, wow. I remember watching the Spice World movie, the Spice Girls movie. I do not remember. Oh, you guys didn't have older sisters, that's why. No. All right, anyway. Movin' On. All right, speaking of Movin' On, the NFL schedule moved on. We are now in week two, so let's get to Football Talk. And I guess technically we're in week three, so we're going to recap week two. As always, we're going to start with the Bills game, go to the Titans game, and then kind of what else is going on. So, Rob, you were at the Bills Raiders game. What were your biggest takeaways? It was a fun home opener. The Bills got back to their winning ways with a nice, easy, I'd even want to say I was worried at the beginning. It was a little annoying that they fell behind 7 -0, but I was confident they would still pull it out. They did. Josh Allen ended up AFC Offensive Player of the Week, I think the 11th time in his career now, which is pretty impressive. Wow, the franchise record. Oh, I didn't know that. Nice stat. You beat Jim Kelly, it was 10 times. Well, pretty nice. Feels like a new beginning for the Bills, for sure. Nice, Ryan. Where was I going with that? I told you guys a stat yesterday, actually, that surprised me, but Josh Allen is number one in completion percentage so far this year. I know it's only two games in, but fun little tidbit there. It's crazy how much can change week by week in the NFL, and it's going to happen again this week. If the Bills were to lose to Washington and go 1 -2, then it almost feels like the game, I know it wouldn't be a must -win, but it feels like the game against the Dolphins the following week would feel like a must -win. That way, they're not 1 -3 and that far behind the Dolphins, but yeah, it's crazy how much can change in one week in the NFL. Oh, show. My biggest takeaway, and I said it last week, kind of a similar takeaway for me was last year it felt like we never got pressure on the quarterback. This year, it feels like we're constantly getting the opposing quarterback pressure, and it feels like our offensive line is playing well, so big task, which is we're physical, we can run the ball, we can block, we can get pressure. It's a good change of pace. I don't know, honestly, I'm not smart enough to tell you if McDermott's play calling is a factor in that, or if it's just Leonard Floyd, hopefully his ankle's okay, is better, and Ed Oliver's having a better year, so on and so forth. Yes, I saw his average depth of tackle is negative yards right now, which is impressive. So his average tackle is a tackle for a loss. That's awesome. That's literally the definition of blowing up a play. So yeah, it's exciting. Obviously, this win means something, but it doesn't really if you go and lose to Washington, so got to two and one. Two and one, by the way. Oh, yeah. I think everyone does the thing where you kind of... Did we just lose our host? It kind of looks like a frozen face there. Okay. Hey, frozen face. Oh, Rob, it's you and I. Let's do this thing. All right. So I didn't get to talk about the Titans at all. Can we say anything now, because he's gone? Yeah, we can say anything. Say anything, say anything. Sorry, I can't sneak any of these. Good Charlotte. Anywho, girls and boys, my takeaway is that the Titans are who I thought they were. The team that... I guess who a lot of Titans fans thought they were. The team that's probably... You are who we thought you were. Welcome back, Anthony. Thanks. They're the team that's going to beat the good teams and lose to the teams they should beat. And that's how it feels like the Titans have always been. They keep every game close. They have a shot. They have a chance in every game. So they're not quite the young and the hopeless, but they're just maybe like the mediocre. No, they're not the young and the hopeless. Oh, I thought that was one of my song titles. That's the... Oh, no. Oh, no. Clearly. Well, okay. I guess I can cross that one off my list then. Anywho, you know who else I was impressed with was the Falcons. They play a certain brand of football. It's the NFC Titans. I think I have to be a fan of the Falcons now. But just ground and pound, they came back. They were able to pull that one out in Green Bay. So... Yeah. The Falcons. To your point, there's not many teams, I feel like, in the NFL that have an identity, like a true identity. The Falcons are one that you know exactly what you're getting every week. And that could be really good or it could be really bad. Oh, for sure. One of my week two takeaways is prior to the season, it was always... And I was the one on this podcast kind of leading the charge is how good the AFC is gonna be. And then if like through two weeks, which is, again, a small sample size, it feels like the 49ers, Eagles, and Cowboys are playing just as well as anybody. And they're all in the NFC. Now, the NFC doesn't have much else to offer, but those three teams are gonna be very formidable to whoever comes out of the AFC come Super Bowl time. Yeah. At this point, their high -end talent almost seems better than the AFC with a lot of the top teams in the AFC struggling. So... Do you guys think that three of the top five teams in the NFL are NFC teams? Maybe even three of the top four teams in the NFL? I think that's fair right now. Yeah. That's crazy, isn't it? Because before the season, it was like, the AFC is so strong, so good. They have all the good quarterbacks and two weeks is a pretty small sample size, but I think... I think at this point, yeah, it's safe to say those three teams are top five. I don't even know who you would put... I mean, I guess the Dolphins are probably the best team in the AFC at the moment. I mean, the Chiefs scored 17 points against the Jaguars. And I mean, the Bills looked very good last week, but you can't ignore how poorly they looked the first week on offense. So... And then obviously, the Bengals Chargers being 0 -2 hurts the AFC's, I guess, power rankings or however you want to look at it. And then Rogers being hurt. Those are three teams that I thought were going to have a very good season. They still might. Maybe not the Jets, but the Chargers and the Bengals.
A highlight from OUTCAST by Gloria Giorno
"Seek and Destroy that has been the theme of discussions of truth now for well I'm in my seventh season here and we started the show on Wynwood radio in Miami 2016 is when I agreed to do the show with them aired the first episode January of 2017 this is Ian Trottier here and today we are going to start talking if you are not familiar with the name Charlotte Iserbit she passed away about a year and a half ago she's a former advisor to the Department of Education under Ronald Reagan her story is very interesting and captivating because she talks about having received a list of these Skull and Bones members via mail that was sent to her father who was a Skull and Bones member at Yale and Anthony Sutton was hot on that trail so two names that you should familiarize yourself with and that is Charlotte Charlotte's work and that is the deliberate dumbing down of America she talks about the invasion of the American education system and that having been formalized under Jimmy Carter back in 1979 Department of Education so she talks about that through her book and then also what I was talking about was Anthony Sutton calling her being hot basically on the trail of dissecting the corruption that is it's really manipulation because Ella Hugh Yale was a major stockholder a main president of the British East Indies trading company that is a Rothschild controlled trading company and the Rothschild funded the American Revolution so I may be off here ladies and gentlemen but if you look at the flag that was flown above the John Paul Jones excuse me the USS Alfred commandeered by John Paul Jones on the Delaware that basically started the American Revolution that flag is basically identical to the British East Indies company flag and then that you trace that and you go back to Cambridge Massachusetts and something called the flag committee which is Continental Congress approved Washington Franklin adopted what became the first flag of the United what became known as the United States and that was the US Grand Union flag which as being designed by Betsy Ross that is the US Grand Union flag which is identical to the British East Indies company flag because that is where the financing came to fund Washington's army and then you ask well wait a second that's English and well yeah this it is English but it's not English because London the city of London is not technically part of England it is its own banking it's sovereign nation a Roman banking colony still in existence these are all facts and you can cross -check them but anyway so seek and destroy corruption that is how I that is that is how I theme my discussions my conversations my talks it's what I do in Trottier with discussions truth today we're gonna talk about the Department of Education rather the state of the education system in the United States so quickly before we bring the guests on we'll be we'll be talking to Gloria Giorno and her son Stevie and getting their view as conservatives what it's been like for Stevie to go through I think it's Belmont University as a conservative so without further ado thanks for tuning in for the podcast on and we're bringing on Gloria and Stevie right now calling Laurie and Stevie this is Ian Trottier for Discussions of Truth Gloria hi nice to meet meet you and welcome to Discussions of Truth I've looked at some of the work that you're you've excellent hi Stevie so thanks for for joining the the the show and please give listeners an introduction to who you are Gloria you can start tell listeners who you are what you what you do and then and then Stevie you can do the same please I try to destroy a young conservative and I also did a nonprofit the name of it is United Women Foundation what we do is mentor employ aid and young conservative women who are in Stevie's situation and we also give out scholarships to conservatives who are not in need of a scholarship but who are conservatives and who are promoting the conservative agenda in their lives thank you Gloria and that's United Women Foundation calm I'll go ahead and put a link to that in the episode Stevie go ahead and introduce yourself for us please well thank you very much for having us on my name is Stevie Giorno and I serve as the chairman of the Tennessee Young Republicans and I am the former student body president at Belmont University where I was attacked by the radical left for being proud of my country and being proud to be an American on the 4th of July in 2020 during the as a mother for protecting your your family and your country I've looked at the website I've looked a little bit about both of you and what's interesting is you have been you've come my way and your stories come my way through a contact there in Florida and your Stevie your story is daughter went through something very similar and in her university classes but Stevie go ahead and tell us a little bit about about what you experienced you were the student body president at Belmont University yet you were attacked for your political views isn't that right picture of myself in front of the White House and I captioned it that I was proud to be an American and I thanked those who had sacrificed and served so that we may have the freedoms and liberties that our forefathers intended for us and within 24 hours my fraternity was blackmailing me threatening to label me a racist and remove me from the fraternity there were hundreds of comments on my Instagram post and there were hundreds of signatures on a change .org petition that sought to remove me as the duly elected student body president even though I was elected unanimously with almost 99 98 % of the vote and so it was really bad that students friends of mine my fraternity brothers wanted to attack me because I was proud to be from this country you know my grandparents escaped from communism in Yugoslavia and my mother lived there for a year so I've heard the first -hand horrors of what happens in a communist country and I fear that our country is headed that way every single day. Now what's interesting is one of the articles that I that I went through briefly was is written by Campus Reform it's published on an online newsletter called Campus Reform and one of the stories that they have today actually talks about glorifying Che you Guevara know this is a this is a socialist figure that that helped with the with the cubist Cuban communist revolution and Fidel Castro you're you're talking about your family having come from communist Yugoslavia are you seeing are you seeing Stevie in in in in your experience on on campus now I don't know what you're doing now maybe you graduated you can bring us up to date with where you at right now but are you seeing some of these same the same signs that that perhaps your mother or your grandparents were talking about that were that were red flags for for communism growing within the country are you seeing that experiencing that I do and I think unfortunately it is getting worse specifically at Belmont University they refused the school is refusing to allow a turning point USA chapter on campus I think it it's it's it's awful it's an infringement on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech and freedom of belief to protest to assemble and so it's really unfortunate what's going on with with colleges and universities I graduated in the spring of 2021 but I have heard of the horror stories happening at private Christian schools so -called Christian schools happening across the country and until students and parents and grandparents begin to see what is happening you know the first step to solving a problem is acknowledging it exists and it's there and it's not going to get better until enough conservative students and parents realize that they need to stop funding the indoctrination machines of universities and change course well it's very brave of you to say that glory I want want to get your your view and and and I want to first first say this I opened this show up before I brought you on with talking about somebody named Charlotte Iserbyt and I'm happy to send you her link to her book it's called the deliberate dumbing down of America what she did was she started dissecting what was happening under the Reagan administration with the attack on the indoctrination that we're seeing fruits of today a few decades later but Gloria did you did you ever expect or suspect that something like this might happen to your son I I he gets into college were there any anything anything happening up to that time where he's now the student body president of Belmont University anything before that that you were that you questioned well you know hey they he might he might need to defend himself or was this a complete surprise to you it was a complete surprise there was absolutely nothing the handbook the literature the online documentation about Belmont University everything fit a conservative Christian agenda there was nothing I mean personally I think it's a bait and switch but there was absolutely nothing I was friends with some of the professors who are conservatives at Belmont or who were conservatives at Belmont and we had spoken for two years before Stevie made the decision to go there and no there was not any kind of indication that anything like this would happen now we would never allowed our son to want to go to a school where he would have been threatened for his beliefs I mean he had been working for Republican candidates since he was 17 years old so it was out in the open it's on his LinkedIn it's public so no I mean we we were told on every tour we were told at every meeting that this was a fully free campus there would be no harassment it was Christian it was conservative and I read the handbook and Stevie followed all the guidelines when these things did start to occur he did follow all the guidelines he followed all the rules he turned everything into administration and they did nothing absolutely nothing and Stevie yeah go ahead to this day they have not responded in any way shape or form nothing and this has been three years now so you have not gotten a formal response from the school administration Stevie you're simply in DC taking a photograph outside the White House expressing your gratitude for the country and the values that it stands for did you ever suspect this type of backlash coming from the because he knew that if he spoke out against them that they would send him to a camp where he'd never be heard from again and really that whole year of 2020 was either you agree with everything we're saying you endorse the BLM organization but we're gonna do everything we can to destroy you and in fact because Tennessee is a single -party consent state that means you can record conversations with only one person knowing I did record those conversations with my fraternity which my mom put into her book and in those conversations my fellow friends my fraternity brothers say if you do not apologize for your post if you do not endorse this group we're gonna do whatever it takes to destroy you and your career and your reputation so it's a more mild form of what happens in communist countries but because these students were not held accountable it is only going to get worse and worse and it did I mean there was one instance where a female student who worked at a fast -food restaurant I would go to for my breakfast in the mornings she admitted in the official College Democrat group text that she was putting quote gross stuff in my drinks every single day because I was a an awful conservative who loved this country and one endorsed the BLM organization and the school guess what the school did when I turned her in what did they do they accepted her into Belmont law school you gotta be kidding me I'm serious 100 % she was rewarded for attacking a political opponent and I think that's dangerous as we see what's going on with President Trump he is being attacked because he's leading in the polls and it's truly unfortunate that we're becoming a banana republic yeah did the did she make you sick with whatever she put in the drinks and we couldn't even get the Nashville police who are unfortunately very short staff due to the liberal City Council and the liberal mayor at the time unfortunately they were they were unable to investigate it because I was perfectly fine thankfully but they said since there was no lasting issues that they refused to investigate and then the school accepted this girl into law school with full knowledge of everything she had done struck so it it shows the systemic problem we're having and imagine if this is happening in a conservative Christian private university in Nashville Tennessee one of the most conservative states imagine what's going on in all 49 other states we don't have the ability to record conversations and to take screenshots of texts and emails and and have such transparency I mean it's terrifying to think what's happening in these other colleges yeah very well said Stevie tell us about that book and tell us about how tell us about how it's been received my husband and I we want to speak out on this we want people to know I need parents and grandparents to know what their children and yes very teen but there still are children what they face and what they are up against when they go away to school we need for parents to fight back we need for parents to take a stand if 40 % of students stopped attending their respective universities you know that the agenda at universities with administration would change so we as conservatives we have that title of being silent majority because usually we are silent well Stevie and I wanted to change that hence the book I use I feel that the book is an educational tool for parents learn from what happened to my son learn from the experience that we've had we went to this university many times it's not far from our home we investigated it we knew people who worked there who taught there and never once did we feel that it was going to be a threat to our son and look what happened so whatever you're seeing I dread to think what's going on at public schools I just dread but I want parents to learn learn read the book you'll see everything is documented in there as my son said fortunately we're able to record and we're able to use everything for information but we need for parents to be more active in their students and their children's educations even when they are at college because they are all indoctrination facilities I did live in a communist country I went to first grade in Zagreb which was then Yugoslavia in 1972 and I can tell you that on my way to school my walk to school every morning I had 1 ,000 US dollars in my backpack I knew if civil unrest broke out at the age of six I knew how to get out of Yugoslavia get into a cab that was waiting for me at the end of the hill and that cab driver would take me to the border of Yugoslavia in Italy where one of my aunts would meet me and my parents would come when they were able I also knew the police officer on the corner he wasn't there for me he wasn't there to make sure that I'd be safe or anybody else he was definitely there to protect the communist regime and Josip Tito who was the dictator at the time and the parallels that I saw with what I experienced living in a communist country and what my son endured at Belmont University it's there if it's clear as day and I want to enlighten everyone who wants to hear from me I want all parents to know this is happening in our country now too we are being silenced and shut down the title of the book folks is outcast how the radical left tried to destroy a young conservative and that is Stevie so Stevie was this a the attack on you was this coming from the BLM movement at Belmont University or in Nashville have you identified the nucleus of where this attack came from okay so let me ask you a broader question we saw during the Trump Tifa uprisings mainly Seattle Portland but obviously across the country Chicago New York but that coincided with this this COVID -19 virus outbreak as a as a university student you've now graduated but Stevie were you were you drawing any parallels to either of these things happening during the Trump administration that seemingly linked to a communist revolt within the country does that making sense were you able to draw any connect any dots Stevie we know from history that it usually doesn't work that way and the government's gonna keep taking more and more of our rights and when you couple that with what is happening what did happen in 2020 with with the riots and people getting away with committing crimes to where if you and I or anyone else who was a conservative did burn down a courthouse like they did in Nashville or protest and kill innocent people in the streets we would go to jail however because they were advancing a political movement that the liberal district attorneys in big cities supported they were let go and they were not punished like they should have been like we would have been so the hypocrisy is terrible I think it does parallel communism to where you know if you remember the black shirts Mussolini's black shirts taking control of the Italian government because they were the advancing political agenda and movement that the powers that be wanted them to they were able to harass and intimidate people into supporting them and I fear that our country is going that way and we need people to stand up now if we're ever hoping to take back our country and get it back on the right track and under control Gloria the book is recently published it looks like it was just published last month and you've got us forward by Sam Sorbo how's the reception of the book been so far what are people saying who have you spoke to about it how is it being received lot Gloria a of media outlets that are reaching out to us I'm being asked to speak almost on a daily basis different organizations different groups Stevie and I have traveled to a lot of different states throughout the country and we will continue to be touring and we are I have started a conversation and parents are now extending that conversation with their friends and that is the goal we need to start with one person talking to another and now the growth has been exponential it's incredible the book is selling very well it's available on Amazon and wherever books are sold but from what I have witnessed and the calls I am getting yes it is and I mean if we as conservatives don't speak up we're gonna be done this is it and if America Falls there is nowhere else to go and our children are being indoctrinated I don't care what level of schooling it's that they're being indoctrinated on every single level and if parents do not set a strong foundation in the household when the child is born and continue that throughout a child's life when they go to college always we will not be America any longer so the book is being well received I do have parents who have reached out to me and who have asked me questions likewise I do have some haters but that's how I know I'm making a difference because the hate is there as well yeah absolutely well said it's like when you went once you're censored you know that you're putting up the correct information on the online right Stevie are you concentrating on any particular campuses as you tour the country you point of a Christian organization and unfortunately they they canceled the meeting that was going to happen at Belmont and so been trying to help the students out there at Belmont but really I think the key thing is getting in front of as many young people as possible who are conservative and letting them know that they're not alone that the hardships they're going through have happened before and they're gonna happen again and we've got to stand up tall for what we believe in and we can't be scared of people saying mean things about us or what people put on social media or what they may say to us we've got to stand up for what we believe in if there's any chance of saving our country thank you very much let me ask you this question Gloria as we as we wind down and then I want to give each of you an opportunity to leave listeners with some final words and thoughts but Gloria as somebody who's lived in a communist country and it sounded like you did at least one year schooling their first grade what's happening right now to the border of your country what's happening down there they believe they have freedom and to an extent they do and I equate it to when I speak I speak to a lot of young people because young people are what United Women Foundation is mostly about and so when I speak I they look at me very oddly when I tell my story but what I have found that works very well is I bring up a lion at a zoo and he's in a zoo he's caged his needs are met he has food he has shelter he has water he has medical attention and it's all for free but he is still in that cage but he is able to roam in that cage correct and then we have the next picture a lion picture lion in Wyoming in Montana anywhere in this country roaming freely that lion bends for himself he finds his own food he finds his own shelter he finds his own water he takes care of himself that lion is independent to me that is the difference that is the bottom line that is the difference between communism and America that is the difference between our constitution is that lion that is roaming free throughout this country and that's what we are right now so that is something that I think resonates with young people and I I believe that putting it in a perspective of a picture like that they are beginning to understand a little bit I hope at least I mean I don't know right now what I'm seeing is a lot of people have said we cannot have an opinion because we have not experienced it which truly breaks my heart my family in Croatia thinks that they are free in effect my family basically is a caged lion yeah incredible and and let me review what is happening right now at the southern border in in the U .S.

A highlight from 42: Week 1 Recap
"Welcome to the Ultra Flex football podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football. I'm your host, Anthony Sutton. With me is Rob Green. Hello, hello. And Wheeler. Ryan Howdy, howdy. Tony, you do COVID well. Man, you sound really good, actually. I just realized it. Help my radio voice. Yeah, all right, cool. We got the album thing that we always do. Like I said, we're gonna go over our song title so that you guys know what to listen for. The audience knows what to listen for. We are doing Astro Lounge. The album is called Astro Lounge by Smash Mouth. Because Steve Harwell died. And apparently we're just gonna do an album of everyone who dies. So if you want to get your name on the show, just create an album, become a hit and... There's a pattern forming here. Yeah. Anyway, so my song titles are Who's There, Digging Your Scene, I Just Wanna See, Waste and All Star. Rob. I Satellite, got Radio, Stone, Then the Morning Comes, and Road Man. I've got Fallen Horses, Defeat You, Come On, Come On, Home, and Can't Get Enough of You, Baby. So we'll work those in here. This is gonna be a relatively shorter version of what we've usually been doing last year in this off season. So try to keep this around 30 minutes. We're gonna talk about football talk, which will be recapping week one. We're gonna pick games like we always do. And then we're gonna play Who Am I? So let's talk some football. Let's go to football talk. Dude, I was in my own world there. Let's try that again. Say it again. Let's go to football talk. Sometimes we're good, sometimes we're not, it's fine. I was honestly trying to think of how I could nail like three song titles in one sentence. Right, just on the road, man. We're like Josh Allen, sometimes we're good, sometimes we're not. Week one, interesting week. It always is an interesting week. We had some Fallen Horses, even at home. We had some pretty big upsets in some minds. I guess maybe not upsets, but surprises with the Bengals putting up three points. The Bills not being able to beat a backup quarterback. So let's dig in. If you've listened to this before, you know we're probably gonna start with the Bills and the Titans. I think the Bills game had the biggest news of the season by far with a future Hall of Hamer tearing achilles his four plays into the game. Four plays, man, brutal. So Rob, what happened to the Bills? They sucked. I don't even wanna talk about the Bills this week. Can we talk about another team? Let's talk about the Titans, guys. I'm on to the Raiders this week. The frustrating part for me, which we will talk about the Titans here in a second, is the thing that I've been asking for for what felt like a long time now is for their offensive line and defensive line to play better. And they kind of did. Like the defensive line was in the backfield all game. The offensive line played well enough to win the game. I mean, the Jets have a very good defensive line and they held their own. And our superstar quote unquote quarterback that got paid a boatload of money literally lost the game for us, which is frustrating. So I don't wanna waste too much time talking about the Bills. I just wanna see who your guys' all -star would have been for the Jets on offense. Who would you say, or defense, I guess.

"No, maybe they don't have to be done in five years. That's pretty ambitious of me, but I'm already working on one so I can get the other two at least in the works. But at the time that would be great. I do have sort of a passion project that I've been sitting on for a while. I have a collection of drawings. Maybe it's like 200 and something drawings that I would like in five years to sort of have their own sort of brand where it's a collection of whether it's greeting cards or home decor or apparel. Not are, I should say and. So I've been procrastinating on this project for a really long time and I hope in five years that that project sort of see the light of day. Well, just to wrap things up here. Where can our audience find out more information about you, about your work and everything? Where can they find that online? I'm probably most active on Instagram and Facebook. So Facebook is Tashika Arsenault Sutton. On Instagram is Black Voice. I am on Twitter under Black Voice, but I am not that engaged with that platform as much. But I'm on there and I tweet every now and then. I'm on LinkedIn, which is you can find me under Tashika Arsenault Sutton. Again, that's not a platform that I'm super engaged in, but I'm there. And I probably you'll probably find me multiple times under LinkedIn, but I'm there. But Instagram, I would say, is probably the place to see me. I'm more active there. I would hate to throw out my crappy Adobe portfolio website. That's just a bunch of stuff that's thrown on there right now. But hey, why not? Black voice design dot portfolio dot com. That's just something that's there right now. Just to have an online presence until I have time to do something else with it. All right. Sounds good. Tashika Arsenault Sutton. I want to thank you so, so much for coming on the show. You and your work have been on my radar for many years. I think probably since maybe since 2015 for a while now. And it wasn't until recently by spoken with Cheryl had Cheryl on the show for 500th episode. And she's sung your praises to the high heavens. And I was like, I feel like I reached out to her before. Let me let me reach out again just to see if she might be interested. my You did sister right before. And I was like, I feel weird because you did reach out to me a long time ago. And I think at the time I was just like not ready. Yeah. Something had nothing to do with you other show. I love the show and listen to it. And I think that was just like, you know, I'm still in my boldness. I'm kind of shy. So I think that, yeah, it just took a while. But you did. You did. Yeah. Okay. But I mean, I also just want to say, you know, from hearing your story and hearing about everything that you're working on, like I think it's it's evident that you have a passion for design. You have a passion for honestly getting the story right, whether it's through writing, through education, through your visual design work. I'm really excited to see and hear more from you in the future.

"And we do have our chapters that we all, you know, that the three of us have been responsible for and we have contributors to certain chapters as well. But we're not sort of concerned with the more traditional approach to this type of book. We don't even call it even a textbook. Like we're not really approaching it in that same traditional way, I guess, if you will. Yeah. So you're teaching, you're running your own design studio, you are working on a book, you're doing this research and, you know, your research focuses on, as we've talked about throughout this interview, black people being omitted from the graphic design history canon. Like given all the different spaces that you occupy, designer, educator, et cetera, what does the path forward look like for you? I think about that a lot. I think it's going to continue in this realm of writing and publishing and designing. I think I like the idea of being a content generator and being the one to design that content. So I see more books around the same topic, but in different iterations. So, for instance, I'm completely obsessed with Louise E. Jefferson. She's a black woman who was one of the first art directors in the publishing industry at Friendship Press. She started working in the mid late 1930s and she was a designer, a calligrapher, a cartographer, an illustrator, a researcher. I mean, she was like a real true Renaissance woman and she rubbed shoulders with all kinds of people during the Harlem Renaissance. But I've been doing research on her for a really long time and so I envision, you know, writing and designing a book about Louise E. Jefferson. And right now I've been in touch with Friendship Press where she worked as an art director for 20 years. And they're interested in me writing a book about Louise and her work. So those type of projects I see still continuing. The past few years have been great. The writing, the lecturing have been amazing. I've met an amazing people and have been great by giving me more opportunities to write and to research.

"So we're still in the process of writing now. We have a hard, hard deadline coming up on June 1st. Yeah, where we have to like really turn over like the manuscript. Yeah. And we're all also collaborating on the design of the book, too. So, yeah, it's been an interesting process. And I think the thing that's I know for me and I think for my co -authors as well, the thing that's been most difficult is that it's a design history book, right? Yeah. But we're not approaching it like like a mags book in a way or like, you know, like this book came out a few years ago. It's called like Graphic Design Pioneers or Pioneers in Design, where it's sort of like focused on individuals. So we do talk about individual designers and sort of their impact, but it's more about the diaspora. It's more about sort of the black experience in a way and sort of what we had to sort of go through and deal with. It's more about like how we've been represented through visual culture and who is responsible for that and, you know, that kind of stuff. So it's not it's not necessarily about a clothesline of designers, although we do talk about individual people, because like you can't write a history book without sort of acknowledging, you know, individuals. But yeah, it's not just about highlighting people, I guess, in that way. It's more about the different movements that sort of happened in throughout time and throughout history. Yeah, because I mean, it's been affected by it, right? Yeah, because you're like you said, it's set up with like it's in the context of America during that time. And so there's been, you know, wars, there's been civil rights movements, there's been other sorts of radical movements. And so being able to talk about how black design has been a through line with all of that in this country. We don't learn it in school in K through 12 schools. And based on what you're saying and probably from others, like it's probably not even something that's really readily learned in colleges.

"And it's not good to sort of kind of like even put them into a box and assume what they're interested in because it's a lot of different things that are out there. Nice. I love that. I love that. Students are tired of screens. I'm loving hearing that. Now, let's learn more about you. Let's hear your origin story. You're originally from New Orleans, is that right? Yes. Tell me about what it was like growing up there. Yeah, I grew up in the inner city, not on the outskirts. I grew up in New Orleans. We sort of identify with these, with the wards, which are actually voting wards. So I grew up in the 7th Ward, New Orleans, which the time I grew up was predominantly black or all black, maybe. Don't know the statistics on that. But I'm very urban, inner city, grew up poor, single mom, family. I'm the oldest of four, four siblings. Had a good childhood. I remember going outside and playing, making games up as we go. Just started using resources and things that we had around to play different sports or to do different things. My mom was always really supportive in whatever it was I wanted to do. So when I was younger, I wanted to go to law school, actually. I wanted to be an attorney. And so I actually approached going to college thinking that I was going to go to law school and practice law. Oh, wow. What interested you about law? To be honest, Marisa, the part of it that was probably really superficial, meaning I watched a lot of court shows growing up. I got sucked into the drama of the investigations and this ha -ha moment when the real person suspect was revealed. And the banter in the court and the back and forth between the turns. All the drama. Yeah, yeah. That seemed exciting because I always felt like I've always had a strong voice, I guess, and a strong personality and perspective in that way. I can be very argumentative about things that I'm super passionate about.

"I mean, you mentioned earlier that, you know, you tell them at the beginning of the courses that you're interested in kind of learning from them. What kind of things do you learn? I learn a lot from them. I think I can admit as a seasoned educator, professional, sometimes I go into the classroom with certain types of assumptions or misconceptions. So a lot of times I might have assumptions what I think they might be interested in or what they should be. But then I learn actually what they're actually more interested in. And that sort of shifts and change, you know, sometimes. So, for instance, you know, a lot of students now what I'm seeing, maybe something that's trending because of technology is that this sort of longing for tactile things, this longing to create and print things, you know, lots of times I think that students would be interested in learning about letterpress or screen printing or like these sort of are are letraset, like letraset is something I love doing letraset exercises with my students. And I really enjoy, you know, being able to talk to them about the history behind these sort of old ways of printing. But I find like they're really interested in these things and they're not. I mean, you do have some that are like, OK, I'm really, you know, more comfortable in the digital space and that's fine. I'm not there to try to not nurture what their interests are. But I'm also I feel like I'm also there for to say, hey, look over here. You know, there are these other ways of making, you know, and approaching design that sort of outside of maybe what you think you should be doing. You know, lots of times I feel what I have learned is there are very specific things that sometimes students think, OK, design should be this way or look this way. Right. And a lot of it has to do with the tools that they're using, because everybody is using Adobe, Sweden, everybody is using Illustrator, whatever, you know, and I try to tell them, like, well, if we're all using the same tools, and everything starts to look the same, but why not take your ideas and have your ideas and the content have to dictate what type of tool you use? So a lot of times I learn a lot that I should make assumptions about like technology or different ways in which how they're interested in making or what they actually want to make. You know, sometimes I seem like, oh, they're probably interested in developing an app or and they do have like those type of interests or they're interested in A .I. But then I find like so many of them, like when it comes to technology, they're like, no, I don't even want to touch that stuff over there. You know, I want to I want to get my hands dirty. Yeah, that is so fascinating to hear that students want to do kind of tactile things. I do a lot of different types of judging, like throughout the year, like I'll judge design competitions. I look at portfolios and things like that from students. And I have started to see more like actual tactile work, like books or pamphlets or zines or something like that. It's such a stark contrast to 20 years ago. I didn't I didn't go to design school, but I knew people that were in design school at the time that I was also in school and everybody wanted a piece of digital. I guess it's because it was just coming about at that time. I mean, when I went to college, there were computers. I remember vividly like wanting to major. I majored in computer science, computer engineering, and then switching my major over to math because I told my adviser I wanted to learn web design. And he's like, yeah, that's a fad. Like, no one's going to be into that sort of stuff. And the school that I went to didn't have an arts program, didn't have a design program. So I just like switched over to math.

"So any type of way I can give them some kind of assignment that addresses these issues. Usually I try to get them to think about stuff that's relevant in the media, things that people are on opposite sides or sort of buddy hands about just to kind of see how do you handle that into the design context? Even how do you handle as a designer having conversations about, well, if you have a very specific social or political agenda, what does it mean to do design or could you do design for somebody to have a different perspective than you do? So those type of conversations I think are important to have. Yeah, I totally think that's important because at any point throughout your design career, you're going to encounter some conflict. I mean, I think we know the goal is to try to not have any sort of conflicts with clients or prospective clients or anything like that, but it's going to happen. I mean, sometimes you'll have a client you think they're one way and then you start working with them and it's completely different. And even as you've said about like personal views and such like that, it can get really tricky because the world is not just a, I mean, not to use this as a racial thing, but like it's not a black and white place. Like there's all sorts of ambiguity and things in there. So the fact that you're able to kind of work out those scenarios and issues with students and like a learning environment is really important because then they don't get out there in the real world and have, you know, greater consequences for those sorts of scenarios. Yeah, so that's one of the reasons why I do it because I feel like if we can't have these open discussions and conversation in the academic space, then what's the point of education or school in that environment, right? At least that's how I look at it. Another project that I did when I was working at NC State last year was I tasked my students with doing some design research in their hometown.

"I'm talking with Tashika Arsenault -Sutton. Tashika is an educator, image maker, and graphic designer and is one of the authors of the upcoming book, Black Design in America. Let's start the show. All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. Hi. First, I want to say, Maurice, thanks for having me here. Revision Paths have been a listener for a long time now, so I feel really grateful and honored to be here. My name is Tashika Arsenault -Sutton. I'm a designer, design educator. I run a design studio called Black Voice. I also am a researcher, I guess, or a design historian in regards to black designers, as well as design writer. How has this year been going for you so far? Very busy, but good for the most part. It's been a really, really good year with lots of new projects on the horizon. Exciting and exhausting all at the same time. Any plans for the summer? Yes. Family vacation is one of the plans. I will be attending typographics and I'll be a speaker there. So it's exciting because I've never been to the conference before and it's kind of strange to have that my first attendance there would be me actually giving a talk. So I'm excited about that. I'm going to be teaching, I guess, this summer. I don't normally teach in the summer, but I'm co -running a design residency program at the University of Texas Austin, where I teach. So I'm looking forward to that as well. And I have a couple of writing projects that I'll be working on over the summer and some design stuff as well. Nice. Sounds like you're going to have a busy summer ahead. Yes, for sure. Now, speaking of teaching, you are teaching at two universities right now. You're at Vermont College of Fine Arts and you're at the University of Texas at Austin, which is pretty new. You've been at VCFA, what, for 10, 11 years now? Yeah, it's been 10 years. In April, 10 years. I started there in 2013. Wow. It's kind of crazy to think that I've been there that long, actually. Congratulations. Thank you. What has the experience been like there? Wow, the experience at VCFA has been truly amazing and transformative. I think a lot of it has to do with the amazing faculty that's there that I teach with who are not only colleagues, but longtime friends now. It has to do with the sort of non -traditional structure of the program. We don't have any classes or any courses.

"sutton" Discussed on The Bancroft Brothers Animation Podcast
"He he was a huge admira. disney so that was a a difficulty in his life. I think he went on obviously to do lots of other things. But he'd been at disney a long time you know and he you know he basically develop goofy. He did washroom down. He did you know he did the the wicked queen in in so are you would've done major major parts in a lot of those films laughed. it really was the animator that i've heard anyway that rain a ninety percent. He was older than some of them right. Yes that's right. I n n t He'd work to new york. You know come from new york out to la and you know. He became famous. Actually i mean you know when when dick met him. It was horrified when he first met him to discover he was doing a gas commercials. Or something is what's this cry adulated to ask him And and he took him under his weighing and and it was a mutual admiration society. Really i mean. Dick was thrilled to bits to have one of the great animators from the golden age as as he had with kenan. Put them to work. You know. And they started working for him. Site was both he was both student and director. At can harris the referring to exactly rate warner brothers. Animator delara bugs bunny shorts and things like that progressive of Richard to bring in these old masters that were still around but not me utilize very well By the way. I hope somebody does that for me. Tony but And then but breeds a man and and says no no train my staff. Because that's a story. I've heard is that yeah. I don't usually sponge before you guys go. Let's squeeze out all that knowledge please. Well at the scene and he says he's masterclasses with all in. London and i tend tended. This very last one are mentioned and he didn't just do it. He's the people working in his studio. He did competitors well as well. He plays competitors and. I was kind of shocked when i first heard that. Now the thing about dick. That's remarkable thing is. He had this wish to learn as much as he could and he he did it all his life he never start learning was somebody and i think that's something that you know it to any student of animation i would say. Don't think you just got to animation school and then do a couple of years of the studio and think you've let keep learning yes learning and people get better and better get better because they keep learning and dick wanted the medium to get better. He wasn't selfish about that. He wanted everyone to get better and The great thing about all had these You know he had sort of set pieces that people would do and he you know dick. I think famously made lots of notes and they went round to kind of photocopy version of things Which is a sort of basic thing but the you know when we started doing. The malls. diplomacies You know dick bro. All the information he got from everybody all the different great animators. He he'd known worked with friends. Ways like milk call asleep franken oli And he put it all together. Yeah okay so now. We're talking about the book right. The animator survival kit. Yeah i and i remember. I have seen those notes from so let me back us up just making clear that look it is sort of an ancestor to the art. Babbitt masterclass right. He'd been dicap- had been making notes during our abbots a talk can harris and can hear all it's all like the knowledge that he'd been and by no means in my saying that oh he just stole information from none of that's anybody that's published a book and especially art education book You should know that that is the ideas that you're just feeling a lot of information you've gotten from elsewhere. Yes and putting packaging it from europeans. Your viewpoint And your knowledge so it's all fair so but what i was going to say was i love that He that came from that. So we got this gold. And then Distill through Years and years of experience of richard williams and all and is gaining from other. And let me let me up to say that. And richard williams is no animation slough either case for dear listener for the listeners at home. If you haven't done your research on richard williams and know who We com dick many times. That's what he was to france but richer williams Is a master animator himself because he was trained by these masters. It's like we're talking about all the legendary animators of his past. He looked up to glean information from them. It made him better animator. And that's why dick williams richer williams has always been known as the animators animator generations. After richard has gone now a myself tom. All of us our generation the next generation. We've been incredibly influenced by richard williams. I teach an animation class at zoo's a pacific university. We use the animator survival kit. I know a ton of. I know you guys do to tom at lipscomb university all over the world. They're using this great buck. The original larger size book the animators survival kit is being used and glean from. Because there's so much very specific wonderful pieces of knowledge in there that you can't get anywhere and that really does set it apart especially when it came out because there hadn't been really a book that With specific as far as like preston blair had his animation book which was nice and it was more of a you know thinner Thing than a kind of a beginner's more intro. Yeah very much for intro Then there was the illusion life which was awesome called the enemies bible because it was the kind of the very first one and it was by frank. Thomas johnson johnson to to disney animators And then to me. Third was was richard williams And your mo- your book The animator survival kit but for the first time it was more intermediate level. I would say information yet wasn't just the basics and again The illusion life is a little bit glossary over a concepts and things as go into specifics. Because it's it's part history book also of disney and so for the first time we had this book. That was like oh. Here's how to do not just your generic. Walt walk walk psycho. But that preston blair tied us but now multiple different kinds. And oh i got to think about personality. Yeah how to how to put acting personality into a walk. 'cause richard was so wonderful about knowing how to breakdown acting and create character in through his animation. Everything he did had a certain notre characters were likes. And i love. There's a bit of an animation. Movie that Dictator as a promotional thing for the survival kit. And it's basically the cover of if you've seen the cover of the book it's got all these variety of different characters including a cg character and a looney tunes wine and kind of jessica rabbit character and all these characters. He animated as kind of a trailer for the book early on all these different characters walking across the screen and becoming a big group and if you can find that on youtube it's just incredible because it really shows what richard was so good at was creating he animated anything first of all and then but he can also infuse personality and uniqueness into everything animated so really cool. We're supposed to be interviewing though. So i tell us about how that started. I mean. obviously he had all these notes. And by the way i was going to say. I've seen those notes. I think marquette my mentor at disney had them And they were the ones seven really just part of the story because dick collected those the all by bit course things but he collected notes. He had books and books notes. He collected over the the years from different people. He knew and he was always asking questions. And of course the thing about dick was he. He had the wish to food. Expand the stretch medium all the time if you go from his first film live lila and through too much later. Who framework rabbit and then his last prologue. This is somebody who has pushed the medium. Every time he did something he pushed the medium and so wherever he went he was getting information. Just from animates. This surly might be from from seeing rembrandt. You know which caused him a great. He was absorbing everything he was watching people. With time you know. He was taking formation from everywhere. And it really started wait. The malls two clauses which was in the mid nineties. We were living on a little island off the west coast of canada. And we were chatting about projects and things. And i say to dig. This is the age of information. And you've got the information and we decided we'd do him all laws now. This was the very beginning of the whole big. Cg boom we didn't know it but toy story was just being finished at pixar. The original pixar.

Why Is There Suddenly so Much Talk About Australia's Border Policy?
"Since we were talking about the federal budget last week. Norman there has been a lot of talk not just on this podcast but also in other media in conversations that i've been having with people about australia's border policy and the fact that at the moment living this beautiful almost completely covid free bubble but it can't last forever and just what it's going to take for us to transition back into being part of the broader world again and maybe the sort of cost of that as well because in reopening that has inherent risks built into it. Yes so it's been a fair discussion over the weekend on this group coalition. Mp's calling for reopening her no this last forever and brick sutton's being quoted as qualified way saying that we go to actually start discussing how we're going to open up and accept some more risk and a really good piece Yesterday by brendan crabb. And michael tool from the dead institute in the nine media Talking about just being careful about this and these are two people who really know what they're talking about and have got pandemic experience. Look the here are the issues laid out one is we will have to open up one day. We've been told since the beginning of this pandemic that really the only way out of it is as a vaccine. We have a vaccine rollouts at the moment which according to probably the best available data has us completely immunized early. Two thousand and twenty three. What's not completely immunized. But as a percentage of the population
Candidates Find It's Not Easy Getting New Yorkers To Sign Their Ballot Petitions During A Pandemic
"Anywhere in the city in the past week or so, you've probably noticed clipboard toting volunteers asking you to sign your name. That's because it's petition season. Each person running for office in New York City needs to collect hundreds of signatures to make it on the ballot. And there are more than 500 people running. W one my CI's Glen Hogan reports. I could you help get a candidate on the ballot for Manhattan Borough President Volunteer Rachel Pratt is collecting signatures in Madison Square Park. Do you think it helps get a candidate on the ballot for Manhattan Borough President Tire? You have registered Democrat in Manhattan? Okay, she's trying to get Kim Watkins on the ballot for Manhattan borough president. And it's tough going in about a half an hour. She's only gotten one person to sign. Well, I think I have to finesse my ass because I've got a up my game that passes another person, also collecting signatures and gets her second of the morning. That girl said. All right, I know what it's like. And you can use your own town values a sympathy signature. Not just anyone. Consign. You got to be a registered voter in the same party as the candidate running. And your address has to be in the district where the races but don't sign for two candidates in the same race. One of those signatures will probably get thrown out cold that has made this election season particularly challenging. I know it's a pandemic, and people have reservations about getting too close and having conversations more than 100 candidates tried to suspend petitioning The judge ruled against them. Last month, state lawmakers did lower the number of signatures required, but they also shortened the time people have to collect those signatures. Lincoln wrestler who's running for City Council, says he tested positive for Cove it right after collecting signatures, and Loree Sutton cited covert concerns about petitioning as one of the reasons she suspended her campaign for mayor. It's like ridiculous that I think may expect people to stop and sign things because, like I probably stop for myself honestly, if I was walking the streets, this is David Estrada also stocking Madison Square Park for some things. I miss. You mentioned Democrat Manhattan. Any chance he's collecting signatures for tally for Haiti, and Weinstein, a candidate for Manhattan. D Yet my gun for hire Yeah. So I just whoever pays me the highest collect signatures for basically honestly and it's all analog. No online petitions here just the serendipity of safely crossing paths with the right person with a clipboard. Thank you so much. Thanks for signing When Hogan W N Y c news form or on the elections

Goodhart's Law in Reinforcement Learning
"Student at university. College london minds researches mauka manipulation if you have self trading algorithm does it learn to manipulate markets. And then going from that. How'd you stop it for many players in the market on cutting more generally how do you tell algorithm which runs a policy. How do you tell it. The certain things are illegal. Should be done. So it's kinda taking me on more security journey than i thought it would because of going into the world of experimental psychology lower because not market knows very interested in intent lieutenant and they're also interested in coz -ality my work at the moment is trying to establish will Like for an hour them and the what the beginning to be talking about today is connected to quality so is an area that really came up in my kinda full mold machine learning education and it was only probably just over a year. When i read a book by judy. Appel will the book of why a restarted get interested in the subject to causality and realize that it's something but isn't tool on isn't handled while a machine learning at all. And if you read the book. Paul is very adamant about the importance of alexey. In housing types of analysis simply can't walk without taking into account so it drew a question in my mind is wide or how machines machine learning techniques reinforcement dining. what when there's no explicit treatment of causality. it's all so that led to the dog brought to pipe official quoted by fulminate cool cool combo good health law enforcement butting so a reinforcement learning should be all about causality. You have an agent. He chooses actions that she's actions. That somehow changes the world. They receive some kind of award the world changes and so on so you think that reinforcement learning calls aleksey guy well together and actually if you to believe bill. They can't walk reinforcement. Dining should be able to work if causality isn't explicitly treated. But if you look at sutton a barter which is the canonical text on reinforcement. Learning a search for the wet causality. Causal anything like that pays exactly zero times in the book. So someone's gotta be wrong. Eva wrong in saying that actually k. nikon generate any kind of policy to solve a problem or reinforcement dining extremely lucky so far in the Questions that they've studied have contained any kind of interesting causal structure. I agree that the word causality is suspiciously missing from most of the reinforcement literature. Books and papers. I've encountered but it almost feels like it could be there implicitly. Could this just be a matter of semantics. Well that's the great hope from deep reinforcement dining. I guess that ye somehow by involving date neural network in order this somehow in that your network which is unknowable. Mysterious does the job of analysing causality. It doesn't automatically so you don't need to think about it. And it's done you don't need to worry about to me fulfillment dining works. So let's move on. And i guess there is an element of that because reinforcement dining does work. But it just made me think about if you look in science. In general there's a long history of humans discovery techniques which work with before actually understanding why they work so i was thinking about i on the on age was five hundred bc even saudi arabia and to make land. You need to take on all you. Smelted with coke and the coke burns in the air that produces carbon monoxide to carbon monoxide displaces. The oxide in the side which then lacey with real on so at what point in human silenced. It be realized that was happening. Probably two years lights may be seventeen eighteen. Hundreds ole is time. We still had on tools. Said he didn't really matter that we didn't know why what it did kind of walk on. I like bit to reinforcement learning. Maybe the process. Which does what. It's a bit mysterious. Maybe ego to do things to get it to work. But the actual understanding as to white wax isn't diane. I think without an understanding of sally cardi understand. Why rainbow sledding works. I can pull out a textbook or maybe go
