The Story of 'There Goes My Life' With Neil Thrasher
"The story of behind there goes my life because how many this one, I mean again, whether it actually happened to you're not, there's so many people relate to this song. That's a fact. Like no other song that I've been a part of, we've gotten more response, more feedback, more letters, and emails about how this affected their life. And this song actually was my co writer Wendell mobley, who Lee Miller is good friends with. We all write together, but I've had most of my success with Wendell. And this was his idea. And he actually lived a little bit of this song way back when he was young. And we held on to this idea. It was his idea. He brought to the table. We had it all written down, but we hadn't started working on it. I bet a year went by and we had that idea laying around. And the only line that we had was. We had a line, one of the lines in the song, I can't even remember which one it was. We had laid down, but I know we had the title written down in our notebooks back when we were still actually writing words down and not typing them down. We had there goes my life, you know, the teddy bear line and all that stuff was written out, but we hadn't actually put the song together. And then one day we just did Nick happened so fast. By the time we got that song written to the time we recorded it like the next day in a week's time, Kenny had heard it and was going to record it. And it seemed like a week or two later, it was on the radio, but I know it wasn't that quick, but it felt like that's how fast that song happened. And it went up the charts and hung up there for about 7 weeks at number one. It was a big old song. I wound up, I wound up singing it at one of my daughter's graduations. They asked me to come do it when the school called my about threw up when they asked me to do that because there's no way I'm gonna be able to get through this song looking at those caps and gowns. I mean, I can't do this. But I did, and I made it through it. We did good. We got nominated for ACM song of the year. Went to Vegas, and we didn't win. It didn't matter.

So he talks about the fruit baskets where you throw something and he says, and these Carney games get a little switch they can flip. The pops your ball out of the fruit basket. So you don't win. He says, they only let people win. They want to let win. So they look for the biggest rube, and they make sure he wins the biggest teddy bear. And he walks around the Carney. Look what I got. And it drives traffic. Anyone can get it. So he says TikTok, it had that little switch. And that's the for you tab. And they put the creators they wanted to promote, like my son, Saul Hank, in there, grew them to vast size, but now, of course, the next stage is going to start to begin. And that's really what happens to all these platforms. And you know what? It's not even something to bemoan. It's the way of the world. It's called capitalism. Yes. And then these platforms wither away and the next thing takes over. Here's the most important thing, I think. You've got to realize that. And you got to know when to leave. You got to know when you're the rube, and that teddy bear isn't really something you want. And you know who's doing this now who has a for you tab now, all of a sudden. Oh, I can't wait.

James Lindsay and Sebastian Discuss Far-Left Sexual Indoctrination
"Little couple of selections from the head of safety at Twitter. I think I found my calling and it's writing dialog for chef themed porn. Yeah, okay, thank you. Can high school students ever meaningfully consent to sex with their teachers? Why would you be asking that? Doing research on Craigslist sex discussion boards begs the question main browser or porn browser. That sounds to me like the normalization of porn. Let's connect the dots. Let's go to balenciaga. Here's the image of the toddler, the little child holding a teddy bear in bondage gear and then of course we have the document in the suit from the Supreme Court decision on child pornography and then last week we have the dean of that very Tony school in Philadelphia being caught on video by veritas talking about the children in the school having lessons that involved sex toys, sex, toys for miners. None of this stuff, you know, but let's start with balenciaga balenciaga's part and parcel of this discussion is not this isn't just some random photographer, is it James? No, one of the things that these societies, if we think of them as esoteric religions brought down into the modern and contemporary time, that they have to do is they have to signal where they are with regard to the cult to other people. They try to do so subtly. They put out images like this so that you look at them in either you ignore it or it doesn't register or you're a little bit shocked or you make some noise, but somebody who knows what it means knows what it means. And so they now know that that organization is part of the initiate class. So it's like this is the 21st century equivalent of the secret handshake, correct? That's right. It's secret handshakes all over social media with coded imagery and coded language encoded words. That's right.

"A lot of people don't give themselves a chance to succeed by failing. That's the point you're making. A lot of people probably get confused by it. But go out there, don't be afraid to try out for the team. So what you don't cut it, you don't get it. Next time you will. But you'll learn something from it. It does something to you. It will improve you. It will it will motivate you and other avenues that you would add a chance to be motivated and to learn something if you hadn't given yourself that chance, but the point is a lot of times even asking for a raise from your boys or whatever. Whatever it is, or try for a different position or a different going into a different trade or a different occupation that you're afraid to try it. No, no, no. Try it. You might fail. But you won't have a chance to succeed if you don't freaking try it. And find out what you're going to find out. I switched careers at 45 years old. It was the greatest thing that I've ever done in my life. I thank God every day that I did it. And yes, it's intimidating and it's very scary, especially when you have four kids. But once you, once you bet on yourself, you'll never know reward like you, like the reward you feel when you succeed when you're doing everything on your own, you know, obviously you have allies along the way. And there's a great poem by Teddy Roosevelt called either man in the arena or critic, but it's summarizes everything that basically you'd rather be the man in the arena, bloody and covered in dirt than the guy sitting up in the stands who scared shitless to even get in the arena just pointing the finger and talking crap about how the strong man stumbles be the man you're not talking about. They're in the underwears in their grandma's basement. Are you? If they're talking negatively about us, yes.

And women's regards and prayers to the legend, diamond, dust and Poirier, hospitalized with a staph infection in his foot. I saw him post on Instagram this weekend that he had a big swollen footy at a little cut. It got staph infection rolling around in the jiu-jitsu gym, which is a common thing to happen, which is why they always talk about cleaning up afterwards and keeping them sick with that in the NFL. A hundred percent because listen, staph infection is not a joke. It gets into the cut and it spreads. That it gets rid of that infection. Hey, if everybody could kick out an infection from his body, that would be dust and Poirier. He would have to do is look at it and get out. And it was gone. I saw he posted on Instagram that his foot was swollen. I sent him a text saying, yo, what's going on? And he said, oh man, it's actually really hurts. It hurts, and I'm starting to feel sick. And he said, I'm thinking of going to the hospital. And I said to him, dude, do you have a kid in your professional athlete? If you think you need to go to the hospital, you like two hours late. Next picture he sent me was he's like, yeah, you're right. I'm in the hospital. They keep him by saving the night. They probably put them on TV. Immediately, yeah, of course, that's the picture he said. So he posted it on Instagram, so I'm not sharing anything that's not out there in the public, but best wishes to the diamond dust emporia, the fourth member of our 5th member of our production team here.

Balenciaga's 'Edgy' Lotta Volkova Is Twisted
"There's a woman named lada volkova. She is balenciaga's senior stylist. W magazine once called her the coolest stylus in the industry and by cool, this is the way people talk. They mean that she's edgy. And takes chances and those bold things. In other words, she does disgusting things that people don't. People are too afraid to speak down about because what do I know? Maybe she's so brilliant. She just knows so much more than me. I'm not going to stand up and say this idea is horrible. I mean, it's a lot of October. Because stylus in the industry. And when you get to the balenciaga level of stylish stylist, that's pretty big. Now, a few days ago, the fashion house tried to blame the photographer for the child sex controversy, but now it seems clear that the real fault is with volkova. In fact, the photographer came out and said, I don't know what they're going to do once I take the pictures and you know, I know he's got to be a little complicit when he took the pictures that those things were out, the plush BDSM teddy bears were in the little girl's hand, so I don't know what that means. But I will add them on Instagram, but of course he didn't write back to me. Because I said, what kind of a sick bastard would take pictures of kids like that? I'm sure he didn't even look at it because he's been too busy getting creamed by a lot of people in the public. But it's a big, big problem. And this vocal has been working with working closely with the head of balenciaga, in other words, the fish stinks from the head down. In other words, everybody knew about it and was in on it. Because it was edgy, and who's going to complain, but it's so popular. Do you see that Kanye wears us and Kim Kardashian wears us and Nicole Kidman does add to us? Isabelle huppert does add for us? Yeah, well, that backfired, didn't it assholes? But now ever since people became aware of this perverse ad campaign, volkova suddenly made our Instagram private. I ran through my phone to look at her Instagram, gone. But you can go on the Internet and find some snaps. If you're sadly enough, it's not that hard that they're out there. But you can get a peek at how messed up she is. I mean, you don't want to walk away from your phone and vomit. It's just a very glaring indication of how many people. People in important and very influential positions innocent little children like stray dogs. Some of the pictures I saw had disgusting imagery of children and all sorts of haunting violent sick perverted ways. Like a lady wearing a red latex shirt holding two plastic newborns covered in red red blood. Just sick shit. A toddler lifting up the skull of a dead man. A child lying in the middle of a pentagram while the devil sits on a throne behind it. Devil has his legs spread wide open. He's not wearing any pants. Just a new devil with a kid on the floor. It's actually one of those pictures with an adult woman on the floor. You got a female toddler lying on her side, smiling a little girl's smile, but honor they have this JonBenét Ramsey wig and full beauty contest makeup. There's a little, there's a little boy bound to a chair and gagged. There is a feminized little boy posing like a female in a position I can't even imagine getting in. He's got no top on he's wearing jeans and gold pumps. Then there's the bursting I've ever seen. A photo titled murder and a child's bedroom. It's so disgusting. It looks like an actual crime scene. I mean, it's almost like, I mean, I know, I'd all happen recently that the four murders and I Idaho, but it's almost like they were depicting that. You see a bloodied bed. Covers a role messy, there's a person child, I should say, I can't tell if it's female or male. For the back of the bed, face against the wall, blood everywhere in the bed. And on the bloodied carpet, there are several items of bloody clothes on the floor. There's a record player. And some records and albums around and disarray,

"Right in that town all of a sudden your world opens up. And so the media at the time created completely a whole cloth. They created a new medical condition called bicycle face. And the idea of bicycle face was your young woman, you're on the bicycle, you're peddling to get the next towel and pedaling takes exertion. And so you're going to have your face is going to contort, you know, because of the exertion, and you're going to be like, you know, pedaling along like this. And bicycle face was the idea that your face is going to freeze into that converted position. And then, you know, then you would never be able to get married, right? Now, fortunately, it turned out bicycle face was not actually a real thing. It turned out civilization survived the introduction of the bicycle. But basically, there's just this, there's this constant blowback, right? And then basically what you find and we'll probably talk about this in some length, but basically what you find is the blowback is nominally a response to the dangers of the technology. What the blowback actually is in almost every case. The blowback actually is, it's basically a fear, a statement, an assertion, a realization that the introduction of the new technology is going to change the society, right? And then in particular, status and power within the society, right? Who's in charge, who's in power, who makes decisions, who asks status who gets money, right? All of a sudden, the ordering of society is up for grabs. And that's why you get this just like, you know, spectacular freak out when these things show up. Yeah, I'm glad you brought up pessimist archive because if people are curious, we'll bring it up on the screen, but basically anything that you can think of as a prior technology, or maybe even things that you take for granted as not technologies, just things embedded in our lives, had this blowback. You mentioned the bicycle, but it's also the radio trains. Teddy bear is jazz music. I don't know if people would view teddy bears as technology, but the point is, anything that becomes embedded in society that as you're alluding to can impact society at scale, people start to get afraid of because they start going through all of these scenarios and thinking, oh, who is this going to impact? Is this going to impact my job? Is this going to impact the types of people I can interact with? Is this going to impact the power I have in society? So Mark, why don't we dive into that? How do you see technology and its implementation or really as it's starting to be implemented within society?

It's still well known as an Austrian dish where it's made with a few strict rules. In Vienna, it is made by law with veal. The name wiener is German for Viennese cutlet. A schnitzel is the method of preparing any meat that is pounded thin, breaded and fried. Austrians claim that the recipe came from an Austrian field marshal in 1869, but the Italians have a bone to pick with this story. They insist that the recipe was borrowed from their coat to let Alan Milan say, which is identical except that the veal is left on the bone. On national winter schnitzel day, settle the score with your own favorite recipe. Or head to wiener schnitzel if you don't have a dog in this fight. Theodore Roosevelt was an avid outdoorsman and hunter. But during his term as president, he became known for his compassionate side as well. On a hunting trip in 1902, Roosevelt's companions lassoed a black bear and gave him an opportunity to take a shot, but the president refused to kill the defenseless animal and reportedly said I couldn't be proud of myself if I shot an old, tired, worn a bear that was tied to a tree. News of this incident spread across the country and people admired his choice. In Brooklyn, New York, a toy maker created a stuffed animal that was dubbed teddy's bear. That bear became wildly popular and was soon in high demand. A national teddy bear day we celebrate this lovable toy and the softer side of the president to inspire it. I can't imagine him being compassionate, but that's cool. It is a cool story and inspired by our president, that's just so cool. I managed to be here. I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we celebrate every day. See you tomorrow.

"That's innovation, baby. That is innovation. On our final recording, sorry, I have thought of recording on our final article here in the news this week. In coin telegraph, our expiring copyrights, the next gold mines for NFTs. This will be interesting. Most people think of digital art when it comes to NFTs, but in the future expiring copyrights could be preserved, refreshed and repurposed using non fungible token technology. Huh. Although not non fungible tokens are mostly common for the digital art, they exist in many other forms and represent much more than just that. So of course we understand the musicians are using it to they can bring out their own NFT like not just the art side of it, but people can buy into earnings of an album, for example, just an example, and it's really opening up a lot of opportunity out there. We see NFTs being taken up by night by big NBA franchises, but big sporting franchises. And again, once more, I will draw back to an article a couple of weeks ago from one of these news pieces that I've done. Stating that sports fans are 40% more likely to be holding NFTs or cryptocurrency. So again, that relationship continues to grow. As it says here in the article, in the consumer product industry, Nike, Gucci, and many others are selling their digital branded products in the form of NFTs. A lot more real world applications of NFTs are still to be explored and one of them is digital publishing industry. That's pretty cool. That's pretty cool. So again, another way for that to work out. The journey from copyright to public domain. Copyright law is a complex and very widely throughout the world, although few countries often know copyright protection in line with international conventions. Most jurisdictions work on the premise that copywriters protected for the author's life plus a minimum of 25 years after the death. So that's our copyright works. Okay, so let's have a look here. A good example would be winning the pooh. A fictional anthropology anthropology oh my goodness. And teddy bear, who uses these words?

Our brand is named after a mountain mount fuji. Okay but you know this is a different guy's name car history rhymes what about Teddy bear ten time world champ. I think two time gold medalist at the olympics. Two times bronze-medallists at the olympics probably the most dominant judoka ever. Is he in running. What do you think about that guy.

So he's definitely got to be in the running for for the best. But you know technically. I don't think he's as technical as some of the other In terms of pure jude's finesse finesse technique. You know it's he's powerful he's explosive he's dominant. He's strong Teddy also grips really really well.

A lot of them just grabbed the and they go man demand and judah judo and take shots at each other. And that's why a lot of men of getting beat but teddy's in control like positionally he stays in really good position and he controls his opponent the whole fight so they really don't have a chance against them he's he doesn't give them a chance to beat him which is why he's been so dominant but he's not really stalling so i mean he does have a really nice Ah sorta garay this Backward trip outside trip gives people don't know he has just like technically pretty good throws and for heavyweight yes heavyweights can be sometimes messy With their Judo he's pretty technical.

In Vienna, this dish is made with veal by law. And the name wiener is German for Viennese cutlet, a schnitzel is the method of preparing any meat that is pounded thin, breaded and fried. Austrians claim that the recipe came from an Austrian field marshal in 1869, but the Italians have a bone to pick with this story. They insist that the recipe was borrowed from their cotoletta alla Milanese, which is identical except the veal is left on the bone. On national wiener schnitzel day settle the score with your own favorite recipe. Even before Theodore Roosevelt became president, he was an avid outdoorsman and hunter, but during his term, he became known for his compassionate side as well. On a hunting trip in 1902, Roosevelt's companions lassoed a black bear and gave him an opportunity to take a shot, but the president refused to kill the defenseless animal and reportedly said I couldn't be proud of myself if I shot an old, tired, worn out bear that was tied to a tree. News of this incident spread across the country and people admired his choice. In Brooklyn, New York, a toy maker created a stuffed animal that was dubbed teddy's bear. That bear became wildly popular and was soon in high demand. On national teddy bear day, we celebrate this lovable toy and the softer side of the president who inspired it. That is a cool story. This is a cool story. Hey, tomorrow is national TV dinner day. John is it warming up? It's warming up. I got the peach cobbler one. Oh yeah. I'm Anna de beer. I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we celebrate every day. See you tomorrow.

"It's only a matter of time before the bottom falls out again and we return to something like normal or will is this kind of boom that would cause companies in the space to invest more and expand capacity In some way something that or leads to sort of durable changes in how the industry does business. Let's remember that question a year from now right and look back because the cycle is is it just like the housing housing which was a great Episode by the way guys. I like really liked that. The shipowners As we said right the ship owners now are putting these orders into the shipyards to build build build. Sure enough just like drunken sailors of the past right. The money goes flowing out and it will only be a matter of time before they're looking to many ships and they're killing each other for the for the freight when that's going to happen. I won't i that that. That's above my above my level of economic intelligence. I think it is cyclical right downtown. I mean it's it. The shipping community seems to hang their hat really on a supply and demand. But you're building ship the reaction time you just. It's just not that quick right so so it's great on this high to then throw your money into new equipment new vessels which is wonderful. But you're not gonna get it for a couple of years and where's the market fat. Let me throw it. Exempted jerry to fourteen six of my head barge freight market twenty fourteen It was unusually heavy grain season grain. Season is the harvest time when the grain producers and trading companies are moving green southbound from from the harvest areas in the states Down to Down to the new orleans area for export right. So typically that's a time when but when barge freight market just moves upward in general. So let's say that Barge frayed per ton from new orleans to chicago northbound is running in the mid teens per per short ton on a on a typical year basis in twenty fourteen that green season those rates so was such a shortage of barges in such a such a surge of southbound. Green that the bard's lines were much more happy to move their barges. Empty northbound just to keep them in place in position for the green so we saw a barge rates to chicago in the forty dollars mid forties per tonne instead of fifteen. Try forty five right fast forward from twenty fourteen. Two thousand fifteen. There was no grain season it was it was a bust right so how many new barges were built by barge lines after that boom green season. Right i'm not sure or not that statistic but we see this. This cycle just to cycle constantly of of the ocean freight market. The bulk ocean freight market moving. But will we. What's unusual about right now. And they think everyone would agree is we haven't seen.

The bridge was a chunk. Instead was a crack. it was a crack. You could see daylight through this kind of mass into the river either way. I don't want to be on a tugboat going under it. Put it that way joe. I was just thinking like maybe the the solution to all our problems is is infrastructure. Spending right like it's not might not actually be. Inflationary might solve the inflation problem if we could evade the ports. That's the argument right. I even mainstream economists. Make this argument that like you know. You don't have to you know it pays for itself. If it reduces the cost of everything by making a by making everything cheaper by making everything more available. So i have at least like a dozen questions i wanna ask for. I'm trying to focus it. I guess like my main question is when you're talking to your clients now. What sort of preparations are they making for the future. And how creative are they being when it comes to actually transporting stuff because for instance we talked about maybe trying to ship the teddy bear out of china Eventually we decided against that because bloomberg doesn't actually have an export license.

"So this is really just to be clear a. It's his worst today. We're recording this june ninth. It'll be out pretty soon. Is worse today as it's been all year there's no sign that it's getting better and still the trajectory is going the wrong way in your view. Why is that why has it. Why have we not seen any normalization. And what is what is the current outlook. Look look like right now. I would say that you know what we're still experience experiencing rather is that the volumes just haven't slowed so there's definitely a shortage of space on ships of just you know so many ships in so many slots to fill and you can see articles now that the orders and shipyards for new vessels is absolutely increased and it is reaction to what is happening. Now sh- Owners are seeing the opportunities to build ships wants to stick on our mortgage As screening the new container ship orders into shipyards for the first five months of twenty twenty. One are The amount is double the entire numbers of new ship. Orders for container ships of all twenty nineteen twenty twenty suggest first months so again can go to that housing market but i mentioned joe rate the inventory issue so sorry but that cure is reactionary. But it's not a it's a long term goal to a book of shipbuilding. That is now on the table. it doesn't resolve it today and what we can't resolve is that we are still ordering a ton of online goods from you. Know that are all sourcing. Out of asia there is this residual congestion is very very difficult to overcome and then a lot of the congestion is also due to the massive size of these vessels that are trying to get into these ports and there just simply isn't enough physical space at these ports to accommodate the volume of containers. That are gonna come off the ship. And what is potentially going to try reload to ship at any point so that also continues to keep it a slow a slow cleanup at the ports to try and get all this material through because they gotta push out polluted containers to make space for the next vessel to offload but the railroad can't take 'em out fast enough and until they're out we can't get the next ship in so it's really quite the domino effect which means the ships are not getting back to asia to pick up the next round of loaded cargo. So what's the resolve. What's the timeline. Don't know what that is. I don't even know what people are realistically expecting. At this point we are seeing. There was actually an email that came through our inbox yesterday to myself and anton from someone. We know that we know we do Break bulk work with them but they have one of their colleagues trying to put together freight four a six month term containerized a.

"See what's happening right right over the border from hong kong inch at the port of yen tan They have dow a kobe outbreak. That's causing some delays massive congestion shipowners the container Container ship operators are now avoiding yen tan and and the and the congestion is starting to roll over into other local ports in the pro of river delta. So if we tried to to make that happen right now i think we we might even see container lines saying you know. Forget it come. Let's look at it next year right at this point so so yeah it was getting worse by the day and In looking looking today it's exponentially more of a problem right now based on what's happening locally there so yeah right next to. Hong kong is a complete and utter Transportation congestion disaster at the moment when we started talking about this back in january. And maybe it's really quite parallel to this covid world that we lived in in the last year. Your plus where you see the the difficulty for many months ahead and everyone's talking about it and we know it the kovic shipping but you know we're always hopeful in the talking points have been on everything but you know maybe in six months out. It's better or whatever that timeframe is so when we were talking in january we knew it was bad and we knew it wasn't getting great any time soon but the projection that point for when possibly recovery would start coming and normalization to the shipping lanes would resume on in the containerized market was a much rosier picture than what reality has been so to for anton to be correct in saying we wouldn't even think about this today because since january. It's done nothing but stay horrible. This prospect of trying to shipping containers but back in january we. The conversation was talking about normalcy or moving towards normalcy. By this point in the year. it just hasn't happened. It's not getting better yet out.

"Hello and welcome to another episode of the odd lots podcast. I'm tracy alloway. And i'm joe weisenthal. Joe do you remember that time. I bought an actual barrel of oil or i tried to. Yeah i thought about that and we used to sit right next to each other. I mean now are on the opposite side of the world. We didn't appreciate. That was great. We actually got like work next to each other. And i remember you bought some oil and you kept it on your desk for. Yeah well i am. I didn't really want to leave it in my apartment. Because i heard and learned that crude oil evaporates into the error. And it's not very safe so obviously took it to the office and i put it On the dusk was right next to you But the whole point of survive the whole point of that. Actually you know. I heard that that The little thing of oil fully evaporated after a few years. It's totally gone now kinda crazy. Oh man where we're gonna go into the error. Oh someone else. At bloomberg took it and then evaporated so. I'm sure it's in the trash now anyway. That was a very Strange sounded okay. The point of doing that story to actually try to buy a barrel of oil was to show exactly what was going on in a key commodities market in crude oil. Of course at a really interesting time. This is one we had Some interesting patterns in the market The tango structure where in theory you could buy oil and sit on it and forward sell it to someone else and you could pocket the difference and make some money just by buying oil and then storing it for a while to remember that i do that was right. That was like the whole point. It wasn't just that you ought to to learn how to transfer oil but it was like a a carry trader trader. So you know. I've taken an interest this year in logistics and transport and the shipping chaos. That we've seen we've done a number of episodes at this point on the The gridlock in global shipping. This is the topic does your. I think there are many topics. But you know all the interesting stories. This year have not been really in anything related to Liquid markets or anything classically macro but in micro how to shipping work out at home building. Where how sawmills work. Anything sort of like real on the ground economy is is where attend. Twenty twenty one. That's right. I'm so glad you said micro because we are going to be going very very micro in this episode so in the spirit of actually buying a barrel of oil or some oil earlier. This around january is set out to actually ship something via container from hong kong to the west coast of the us. I tell you about that. Are you brought up on our interview with the flex and that was sort of. But we didn't really get into what happened. I don't even know. did you ship it. I don't even know him. Yeah okay so spoiler alert. We didn't ship it in the end. It turns out that the gridlock in global shipping is so extreme. That i couldn't make this work and we tried for about four or five months and i just kept getting bumped from ship to ship to ship so i gave up eventually. I'm sorry but i it like all. The ships are packed. However i refuse to believe that there wasn't space for a teddy bear one ship. I mean come on spent come on. We're going to get into exactly what happened..

Paddington 2 Breaks a Rotten Tomatoes Record
"I am going to be taking a look at films. That for whatever reasons audiences just either didn't connect with or simply just didn't enjoy them as much as the critics did and there is a lot that separates the opinion of critic and the average moviegoer as the average moviegoer is really just looking for an experience. That is enjoyable and entertaining and on the other hand. A critic is essentially going into a film with a checklist of things to look for and in order for a critic to consider a film good. It really has to satisfy a lot of preconceived notions so as we will see in the next segment. It is very hard for critics to see eye to eye on a film in fact it is pretty much impossible to do. So but one exception to that rule was believe it or not. The film paddington to when that film i came out in theaters in two thousand seven enjoyed the longest period of time where a film on rotten tomatoes had both one hundred from the critics and the audience. Now time that has changed it now has an audience rating score of eighty seven percent which is still incredibly high for rotten tomatoes but probably the most surprising thing about that movie is it still has a one hundred percent rating from critics and for those of you wondering if you have this film confused with something else nope. It's the film about a teddy bear with rain coat and a little red hat. That film is rated higher than the godfather and citizen kane.

What Women Think About Valentine's Day
"Men tend to look at valentine's day as a second birthday for women. I mean we know there were supposed to use the date to focus on intimacy in closeness but a lot of us think that it's also an obligation to make her look good in front of her friend co workers as well because you don't send flowers to her job if you want to wait and see what happens if you do that. And i'm sure there are a lot of guys who are thankful that ladies are working from home after valentine's day this year at least a lot of them are as opposed to previous years. However that's kind of our mindset towards the holiday. So eric i'll start with you. I be real. Is valentine's day holiday for women i mean. Do you feel like it's your queen for a day type of holiday for you for me particularly. I've never really been big on valentine's day because the men in my life have not been the kind of men who were who put a lot of thought into it they just go into walgreen's get some candy. Get a teddy bear in bringing home like millions of women all over the world. Have this same teddy bear insane candy and really didn't put thought into it because if you did you would know. I don't even like teddy bears so it's not a big day for me. What kaya what do you think about. It is valentine's day just a holiday for women. Yeah it is supposed to be for the lovers of course but Absolutely as it was before the levers and funny enough. My little brother's birthday is on valentine's day. So i have always celebrated him on his day of birth and barnsley levers though i feel like you're supposed to do something sweet to celebrate the love between the two of year speak aren't so christina. I mean what do you think about. Valentine's day is it just a holiday for Guys are included as well. I'll never bill wants to think that is a a woman's holiday like i know that my grandfather used to come in and he will make sure that his ladies were taking care of with their box of candy and their roses but me. Al always been the person to try to find something that he liked. I'll be snooping around asking questions. Favorite color Which liking this like. That's always been my thought on it. And then i was introduced at sixteen to The holiday is in october the sweetest day and somebody told me they was like. That's the valentine's day for men but my thought process nobel's valentine's day is for everybody. Everyone should be appreciated at some point. I think it is a anniversary For a period of which refer love. I liked it like that all right. So let's talk about your level of expectation may depend on how long you've been in a relationship with someone so kaya. Let's say you've been in a relationship with someone for about three to six months. What are your expectations of him when it comes to what he does for you on valentine's man funny because this is kinda my situation now I honestly did not have any expectations. I always just kind of forget. I usually work as it'd be like the first year. I'm not working on wednesday in a long time. So i mean just appreciation. I would say like a small token something we. If i've been with three to six months i say like cute little chocolate figure out. What type of candies i like. Because it's new. It's fresh yard by all means. Do your thing i would expect. I mean honestly not very much. I would just be so appreciative that someone thought of me. You know three to six months in that they wanna get such a very sweet. So now and christina. What have you been in a relationship for over a year to the expectations. Change for me. I'm not gonna speak for everyone but for me. Naar not really. I am a sentimental person. My love language is words of affirmation followed by x. of service. So if you can remember you know some things over the course of the year. That i may have mentioned does something a little sweet. That means the most to me. Up where eric what. If you're married. I mean our expectations lower. Because you can only do so much for the same person year after year or does he get higher. Because you expect more creativity it'd be involved. Says he now knows everything that makes you tick. I think is just appears. Don't couple and you know what they've agreed on In their marriage is valentine's a big day to you all every year. If it's not the no big deal But i do think it should come with some kind of thought If you've been with somebody that long period of time you should know what they like and do a little surprise for me. Things like planning a night out planning a trip on cooking dinner. Experiences are more important to me than actually buying something christina. That you for a second. How do you feel about non personal gifts. You know what if he give you cash or give car. How do you feel about that. I think the presentation matters the most. Don't hand me like you got to do something creative with you. Know the right a car. Something like i said my love. Language is worth of information. So right me. They're nice little car and often to go with the gay.

What a cactus taught me about prickly emotions
"So i'm a sports and performance psychologist which means i get to work with a lot of people like athletes military professionals in top government agencies. His career in safety depend on peak performance. And all never forget this one story. A soldier told me about his time serving in iraq. It was around early. Two thousands when the united states had military operations in both iraq and afghanistan. Enduring this time. Many locals were encouraged to come forward and share information about potential threats. So one day. This iraqi man approaches the game of the us outpost to share intelligence about a possible threat but instead of being treated like an ally he was met with hostility by the soldier. Who's debriefing him. But that's likely because just days earlier soldiers from another unit were killed in a surprise attack and so as the interview continued so did the soldiers irritation and as a result. The iraqi became frustrated in the end. Tempers were flaring so high that the interview was cut short in the following day. Two separate units were hit by roadside bombs. we'll never know for sure. The attacks could have been stopped. Heavy interview gone differently. But the reason why. I'm telling you this story is because it's an excellent example of a super common problem that keeps so many of us from performing at our best. It's how wilbur regulate emotions which is one of the most common drivers of a good and bad performance and it turns out how well you're able to regulate your emotions depends on how susceptible you are to a principle called emotional contagion. It's just like it sounds. It's how quickly you can catch the emotions of other people and then take them on your own. The problem is though most of us are highly susceptible to other people's emotions which means even the smallest factor can impact how we perform at work on the field and even at home but lucky for us. We can learn how to avoid other people's emotions by becoming better at regulating our own. So here's how i like to think about this. I remember seeing a giant teddy bear looking trump for the very first time hiking in arizona in because it looks soft i reached out to touch it but by the time my hand was close. Enough the spines on the branches jumped in print me literally. My hand was covered in every time. I tried to remove one little sucker would break off in a burrow deeper into my skin in this plant. It has the perfect name. It's called the jumping choya and it left a lasting impression figuratively literally so much so that when i teach people how to regulate their emotions and avoid cashing the emotions of other people i refer to the jumping choi effect and over the years. I have concluded that the jumping toya's are just like people they can be pricks in. If you're not careful they can deepen to your skin so to understand how this happens in real life. I think it's helpful to know what emotions actually are. And there's two popular theories about where emotions come from. The first theory is called cognitive appraisal which basically says that the experience of emotion is actually you evaluating if your current situation aligns with your goals are expectations. So let's say you're on your way home to share some exciting news with your significant other. You walk through the door you find them sitting on the couch but instead of a hello or how was your day. They leave the room without saying a word now. That's not how you expected your to go. Which could lead to the emotion of feeling annoyed. Does that make sense. The other series called physiological perception. Which is all about the emotions be subconsciously. Assigned to the physical changes in our body. Public speaking is a great way to understand this. How perfect right. Usually right. Before i speak. I get butterflies in my stomach now. If i had seen physical feeling. The last time. I spoke in public in a speech went well. I may interpret that situation or that sensation as the emotion of excitement. But let's just say. I bombed my last speech. I may now interpret that butterfly feeling as nervousness or fear basically we overlay our physiological perception from our past experiences onto our current situation. And what's interesting. Is that both of these. Theories also play into how we assess the emotions of other people because the part of the brain processes emotion and memory. The limbic system is considered to be an open loop system. It influenced by any external factor. Think about it. Have you ever passed by someone and without saying a word you can feel how annoyed how excited they are and then maybe you felt annoyed or excited to. It's an interesting concept to think about because our brains are hard-wired to pick up. These settled jews in our environment. Which makes it possible for the other person's emotions to jump in attached to you but what many people don't realize is that every human being is affected by our open loop system. Many people at work or many people on the same team inevitably catch feelings for one another sharing everything from jealousy to envy and worry to joy.

Looking Back at Your Year in Animal Crossing: New Horizon
"On march twentieth the very day of new york's lockdown order nintendo released a game called animal crossing new horizons. Here's simon parkin who writes by gaming and technology for the new yorker so animal crossing. New horizons came out pretty much just as the world was going into. Lockdown is sort of like a digital. Dole's house i suppose but but not as tragic as that sounds maybe for forty year old bad to be playing. Basically you you move on city to an island which is so baron a bit of a wasteland you essentially forage clicked would rox things like that and slowly build up your island house by house and there's an added incentive as well to to do this because you can invite friends from around the world when she ireland and then give them a tool and obviously when you get to your your house you want to come in and fraud to be lovely and also you know. I guess if we're honest to be slightly better than their islands they'd be working on and so for a few weeks. It just was the thing that obsessed everyone on the incident. Just that everyone you know. We rule sort of showing off photographs or stills of our island house coming along and yeah it was just a lovely moment. I suppose when when it was difficult to get outside it was a game that allowed us to sort of frolic around in the countryside and sniff flowers without that being controversial. This is my island. It is called will town okay. Let me take you up here. So this is over here. On the on the left we could a large area of ground. Fenced-in this is my wife's industrialized throws growing outfit. You buy seeds for different varieties of flowers and in by Sowing seeds. You can in time germinate anew color and that's something that she's been another time shoe this popular vegas not stuff. The game was invented by a nintendo. Employees could cut suge a gucci Who found it was just spending his time at the office and not getting to see his children as much as he wanted so he sort of made this game as a way for them to work on a project together and then that way to connect. And i think that's That's been true for for the park in household as well. It was nice to be playing a game together sort of as a family that we were all involved in old contributing to that felt good and certainly animal crossing has enough scope to accommodate all kinds of different interests and different player types. And for me the thing that an it drives my family nuts is i got whatever the gene is that turns people into collectors and completions as always you spend a lot of my time fishing at different times of the day trying to find that elusive fish. That you're going to fill that space and you know i know for my daughter. She plays it in quite different ways as she is definitely more into the social aspect of interacting with the different animals on the island and she spent a lot of time trying to convince the animals. She didn't like to move out the way he do. This is just sort of being mean to them. Shown them and so sometimes it'd be playing the game. Would it would look like. I was running to go and have a conversation one of the animals and she would just scream at me. Don't know whatever you do do not talk to the aibo. Because because i want him out. I suppose yeah she just wanted to nurture the the perfect village and have it so and that's really what. The game encourages her house. We should go see that. This is how she's got a beach house which she picked out. And if you come down here just to the sort of sandy area in front of her from the arranged like a lotta different teddy bears and pandas having a picnic. It looks like they're eating sushi. Which seems unlikely. But i mean this is the game all about dioramas and this is the diorama that she's chosen to make that. I think i may have thrown into teddy bear to help her out. I wonder whether it was so special this year. Just the timing with the lockdown. That i wonder if it will ever be the same again for you know. Food thought generation. Who has now played animal crossing when the whole world it felt like was playing animal crossing You know they will be animal crossings again in the future. I don't know if it will ever be quite like it. Was this year. let's come into the hang on. We're gonna go up here. Sorry we're gonna crossover and Yeah his just a. We go out to a sleeping bag a little campfire and a telescope on the rocks on the northeast and most point of the on. I don't know just a little idea. That as i guess to extend the universe. There's there's more out there.
Crazy things people connect to company Wi-Fi networks
"Talking Tech is brought to you by Amazon Alexa turn your home into a smart home in just minutes with an Amazon Smart Lighting Bundle and right now they've got a special offer just for our listeners find out more after the show. So at the office, we connect our laptops and smartphones the company Wi fi network, and that's about it right? Well, not exactly Ryan. Olson. A top security researcher at Palo Alto networks found some pretty strange things in there as well. Ryan you tell everybody what you found. Yeah. Thanks Jeff Percents last week released a report based off of the survey where we reached out to over. A thousand people who are it decision makers all around the world. We were really interested in getting understanding of sort of how they view this Internet of things all these things that are being connected our network, the potential security ramifications of those things that you connected and we did find one of the questions we asked was what strange things are you finding? They're being connected to your. Networks and a couple of them were pretty strange. One was a smart trash can That's a really weird one that we learned about and another one was a smart hand wash to censor, which is also an interesting item to be connected to your network and sort of make sense in the world of Covid nineteen where you want to keep track of people often they're. Washing their hands and you're gathering all that data. But those are just examples of the billions of devices that are being connected, the Internet, which of having advantages for companies and for individuals but also eventually opened up new exposures for their data. Will you also found Tesla's and teddy bears and things like that. Now, what advantage to accompany is it to have a tesla on their network? For a company in particular that Tesla was probably connected by one of their employees they probably drove up, they wanted to connect their car so that somebody could get updates or something else for the car and they just connected to the company's wireless network without really thinking about what the impact of that would be, and that's true for lots and lots of IOT devices. It's very unlikely that a company is going to ask for that Internet connected. Teddy bear to be connected on someone brings it to work. They say, Hey, I wanNA use this here. I want to connect and they don't necessarily get permission or check with it or definitely check what security say is a good idea for me to add this device to our company's network will what's your feeling? Ryan is a good idea to connect tests, teddy bears or should companies be pretty strict and have just a computer and smartphone only policy? I think the the best way forward is to do this with your eyes open I check right before I jumped on the call I got forty seven devices connected to my home network and I'll tell you some of those computers, some of those phones but there's lots of IOT devices my house as well but I know what they are I know why they're here I know what purpose they serve. If you're a company whose allowing people to bring things into their office attached into the network, you should know what they are and why they're there because one of the things we're really refined commonly is. Not Devices. Simply are not well secured. They don't have patches being applied to them to close off security vulnerabilities. They have insecure configurations with these easy to guess passwords on them, and that means that they act sort of like a window into the company's data and window that someone might be able to peer through. But someone might also be able to smash it walk in and start excellent training lots of eight out of the network, and that's really where the danger comes in. You GotTa know what those windows are in know how you're keeping them secure. Ryan thanks so much. So I think the moral of the story is Hey, folks if you're bringing stuff to work in your plugging into the company Wifi Network, you might WanNa. Ask I write. Absolutely

Making Gay History
Revisiting the Archive: Larry Kramer
"I've talked before in this series revisiting the archive about anger. How it can fuel action? How an anger is partnered with love? It can produce a kind of righteous rage that propels us those of us who lived through the AIDS crisis. Know about it. Some of US learned it from Larry Kramer who died this week in Manhattan where he's lived for. Decades Larry was famous for being one of the first billions to sound the alarm during that last epidemic. The one that began forty years ago he was on the front lines even before aids was called AIDS and became a global epidemic at swept away more than thirty million lives before AIDS. Larry was best known for his work as a screenwriter and author but the virus that was claiming so many lives in the political indifference political negligence that greeted it turned Larry into a very public activist. His friends were dying and he felt compelled to do something more than to just bury the dead and mourn their loss in nineteen. Eighty-two Larry co-founded a gay men's health crisis now known as GM five years later he co-founded act up the AIDS coalition to unleash power. Act Up came to be known for its brilliant use of public protests to bring attention to the epidemic by early nineteen eighty nine. When I I met Larry AIDS take in more than sixty thousand lives. Most of them. Gay Men Larry quickly earned a reputation as an uncompromising firebrand with a fierce temper. I'm not proud of it. But that kind of person generally inspires me to run in the other direction. I was more than a little anxious. I approached the door to Larry's apartment in a building that fronts Washington Square Park in New York. City's Greenwich Village. As I said when this episode originally aired I got myself worked up. Nothing I brace myself for a tornado and found the teddy bear. Here's the same. Larry welcomed me into a spacious apartment and showed me into his all white book line living room and I took a seat opposite him across a broad desk as I said at my tape recorder and attach the Mike to his shirt. We talked about how we both had wanted to find a husband early in life and settle down and that led us back in time to Larry's memories as it confused and Unhappy College student in the Early Nineteen fifties. I pressed record interview with Larry Kramer Thursday January twenty six thousand nine hundred eighty nine at the home of Larry Kramer in New York City. Interviewer is Eric. Marcus tape one side one. When I went to Yale I thought I was the only gay person in the world and tried to kill myself because I was so lonely. Did try to What am I think that was fifty? Three was the year my freshman year. Yeah is awful. I mean I do want to go back that far curious because I was a college student on seventy six desperately unhappy. We're at Vassar College. There were there were a lot of gays. They weren't that many people think there were a lot if there were so many gays. Why was I so unhappy? Miserable person and And deaths seemed very appealing at moments during my freshman year when I was dating a woman in making off the man by in life and fifty three must have been much more difficult than seventy six at Vassar. You can even start in shifty. Three Easter I knew I was gay. I think from the day I was born and I think that there have been I. I now know that there were isolate. They were experiences all through before. I even got to Yale. And they were all covert in guilt. Inducing on on everybody's part so the it seemed as if all those early years were spent trying to deny these feelings the feelings would sort of get to strong erupt in and I would have an experience. Which would autumn always make me feel guilty in one way or another and then you put it you become. Sylvia's would come down for a while a week a week or two and Yale was awful. There was a gay bar called parolees. It was awful the time when I finally have the courage to go there. It was only two blocks from campus. But it was a million years away. It was very dark and grey and inside and smokey and and filled with old old older man and I only went the once and somebody picked me up. A car drove for like hours before we found a place that was quiet to do it and then he drove me back where you didn't say a word all of that list of yourself. I eight two hundred aspirin. Oh my God talk about slow and Miss. You must have been pretty miserable to swallow two hundred and yours anymore. Will after you wanted out. Was that who knows. It's a scene. I'll never forget the scene of taking pills the Yup and find you're still better. I didn't wake up. I I went to bed and I got scared and I call. The campus. Police came took me to the hospital and put myself and that was in woke then I fell asleep and I woke up in a room with bars and after grace new haven hospital and there. Was this very unpleasant hospital psychiatrist. Who said all right Mr Cramer? Why did you do it and I go fuck yourself or words to that end he said? I'm now you're not going to be let out of this hospital until you tell us why you did it. And I just had a few rubbed me the wrong way and I wouldn't have told who who knew why I did it anyway. So my brother who's always sort of looked after me came and got me out and he was friends with the dean of Freshmen. My brother had been the before me and And it was you know ordinarily when something like that happen you were shipped off to go join the army really in those days. Yeah and then you come back to Yale and you've grown up but they let me stay. If I went to the University of Coyote. Just his name was Dr Fry Clement Fry. And he was about in the sixties he had silver hair and it was a good looking man he whereas reptiles button down shirt and You just knew that. He cared more about Yale and he ever did about you
The Past and the Curious
The Teddy Bear!
"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.
