Td loved to play outside was very active but he found out very soon that he had asthma. Asthma is when it's hard for your lungs to breathe so in. Td play too hard. He had to stop and take deep breaths and often as parents made him stand side for long periods of time. So you could start breathing normal again often at night. When he struggled to breathe his father scooped him up in his arms and carried him around trying to sue him sometimes. The only thing that helped was to ride him around the city at night in their carriage so the cold air would make his lungs work again. Theater loved his father and later wrote that he was the best man he ever knew. Not being able to breathe frustrated.

Cheques, imbalances: Americas fraught stimulus
"America's house of representatives passed another version of stimulus bill yesterday. This one promising. Two thousand dollar checks to the majority of americans use would make a difference in the lives of americans who are facing the greatest uncertainty that they've experienced for many of them in their lifetime. It's unclear if the measure will pass in the senate making it yet another twist in a last minute. Saga to provide economic assistance to millions of struggling american workers and businesses the original two point three trillion dollar spending package included nine hundred billion dollars for pandemic relief in addition to funding the federal government for the next year. They was hastily negotiated in the run-up to christmas by a bipartisan group including president. Trump's treasury secretary steve mnuchin but after it was passed by the house and the senate. Mr trump criticized the bill saying it didn't do enough to help. Ordinary americans in really is a disgrace for example among the more than five thousand pages in this bill in the end. He didn't make good on his threat to veto the legislation on sunday but he demanded another congressional vote on increasing the value of the stimulus checks. A measure supported by many more democrats than republicans. I worry that this wapping four. Hundred and sixty. Three billion dollars won't do what's needed stimulate the economy or get the jobless back to work. Whatever the outcome the relief couldn't be more needed. Government has been deadlocked on the matter for months and in just over three weeks. It'll be president. Joe biden who inherited the budget. The stimulus plans and the problems brought about by all the footdragging. Congress rarely compromises these days injuries. Cologne is the economists. Washington correspondent and it was truly a compromise measure. That will do some good I think for the american people. So what's in the bill actually been passed by both houses and signed by president trump. the new sumo's spill that president trump signed into law includes a couple of important provision. One of which is another round of direct checks civil. Go to americans. These are going to be half as big as the ones that were passed in march so these will be six hundred dollars per person as opposed to twelve hundred and there's also going to be a new federal top in unemployment benefits. Most americans have beginning six hundred dollars a week until those benefits expired back in august. The new benefits are going to last for eleven weeks and they will be about three hundred dollars per week. And there's a few other things it's very long. Bill is fifty six hundred pages. Almost that was negotiated very much at the last minute. Among the more important parts are another three hundred billion or so which are going to be allocated for the payment protection program which subsidizes businesses to make sure that they don't have fire people and why the president trump had Such a hard time signing why the delay. That's an interesting question. Depends on how generous he wanted to the president. Many people pointed out the seeming lack of logic about refusing to sign a bill that had been negotiated with his administration. Nancy pelosi of negotiating with steve mnuchin. The treasury secretary about the contours of the bill and this compromise was was forged with mitch. Mcconnell the republican leader in the senate there had been little indication before the bill was actually passed that donald trump had match of objection to it wants. It came to his desk. He thought of the bill was pathetic and that it needed to have much more generous person check but ultimately donald trump decided not to hold up the bill and and this is a relief package that americans have really been waiting some time for. Yeah absolutely the initial cares. Act was a huge injection of stimulus. But it was passed all the way back in march and a lot of the major provisions of the cares act expired back in august and interestingly because that was more than two trillion dollar bill what you saw in the first month of the pandemic was actually pretty solid progress against already in america. You saw a twenty five percent reduction from its pre pandemic levels and what you've seen since the expiration of those benefits is a very fast resurgent so all of those gains in poverty reduction have been Erase this point and if you look at other indicators of hardship whether it's the sheriff families who say that they can't afford food thirteen percent of american families right now are saying that they have not had enough to eat in the last week from the latest census bureau. Polls you see thirty percent of americans who are renting say that they have little to no confidence that they will be able to pay next month's rent and those measures that we've been tracking have gone up significantly in the past couple of months and put this into some context. How does this This relief package on the whole compare with with similar ones offered by other countries britain germany. And so on so at this point america. We'll have done over three trillion dollars of direct stimulus. And if you compare. America to other countries on the basis of how much money does it immediately inject into the economy. America looks fairly outstanding. Where america doesn't look as generous on the stimulus front is on its guarantee. Liabilities made with businesses so european countries are much more likely to guarantee loans use the central bank much more than america has used the fed as part of their strategy for addressing similar. So depending on whether or not you think. Direct relief to americans is more important You could say that america's really well if you think that subsidising businesses and making sure that they stay open is the vital point of covid relief that you could say that the europeans have done better but another facet of this was that the bill apparently contains what president trump called the pork but a lot of provisions that aren't sort of directly related in that way it does and that's in part because it was attached to the bill that keeps the government open in funded for the next year and that obviously has a lot of unrelated provisions because it is the bill that funds entire federal government. You know there are measures on a teddy roosevelt presidential library. Independent commission to oversee horse racing. Racine those kinds of things have been snuck in but also some provisions that might not have been obviously related to covid but that are probably good like an end to the practice of surprise billing which is basically where you go to a hospital. That's in your insurance network. You're treated by dr who is affiliated with a different network and you get a very large bill and all this is happening of course in the in the twilight of mr trump's presidency. Where does this leave. Joe biden as as he starts to come in this really sets the initial conditions for joe biden's presidency a lot of the unemployment benefits for example will expire in mid march which will mean that there will be some period of renegotiation. We saw chuck schumer. Who is the democratic leader in the senate say that the bill will only partially cover some of the depths that americans are in right now economically. Unfortunately the troubles are so deep. The abysses so long that we need more and this is just a first step. This is an emergency. We need a second bill to continue. So that's going to set up a new challenge for them in the opening days of the administration when biden would probably rather try and pursue a big legislative victory like infrastructure. Or something else. A lot of it is gonna turn on what happens in the upcoming senate races in georgia. The runoffs will decide the last two seasons senate and that will determine whether or not democrats or republicans control it if republicans keep those seats and democrats. Don't have control of the senate. I think it's probably quite likely that this is the last big stimulus measure that americans are gonna see addressed. Thank you very much for your time. Thanks so much for having
A Covid-19 vaccine won't be a magic bullet
"Facing an election laws. Donald trump turns to raw political power to try to bend. The outcome by brian bennett. This article is part of the debrief times politics newsletter during his failed campaign to win another four years in office president. Donald trump repeatedly used the power of his office to boost his chances in employing. The white house has a campaign backdrop. Having his secretary of state give a campaign speech during an official diplomatic trip and spreading baseless claims about voting fraud. From behind the presidential seal. Now he's using his office to try to reverse his loss. Trump invited a delegation of michigan republican lawmakers to meet with him at the white house on friday as that state is on the verge of formerly certifying. That president-elect joe biden won more votes judges have tossed out. Trump's claims of widespread voter fraud in michigan and other states so now trump appears to be trying to use raw political power and influence in a hail mary attempt to convince sitting state lawmakers to disenfranchise millions of michigan voters. The white house meeting follows tuesday night. Phone call trump reportedly made to a republican member of the board of canvassers in michigan's wayne county which includes detroit after. The board voted to certify. The vote tally hanging over. Friday's meetings is more than the power of the office. Trump is also building a new fundraising juggernaut. As he fights the election results trump's massive campaign fundraising list is sending appeals to donors nominally to help his legal defense but a large portion of the funds is going to a new political action committee called save america that trump can use to steer donations to the campaigns of politicians. He favors after repeated failures to show widespread election fraud in court. Trump's legal team has acknowledged that its current strategy is to delay certification of votes in key states in order to open the door for gop held state legislatures to intervene and send a raft of pro-trump delegates to the electoral college on december fourteen rather than delegates who represent how people voted. That strategy is exceptionally unlikely to work and would mean reversing. The intention of millions of voters people close to trump believe. He's putting up a robust fight as a way to energize his supporters. So they'll come with him as television viewers after he leaves office and bolster his political sway as a kingmaker in the republican party. But he's already doing a lot of damage to the democratic process. Along the way and seeding unfounded distrust in the election results among core parts of his base that could persist for years. Trump added to that damage on tuesday when he fired his top cybersecurity official responsible for securing the election. Chris crabs who had said his team of federal government. Experts had not seen any signs of electronic votes being changed when president. Teddy roosevelt called the presidency. A bully pulpit. He meant it was a powerful perch to advocate for policy agenda but trump has taken the muscular use of office in a different direction using it to literally bully fellow republicans into backing his personal political ambitions and go along with his false claims that the election was stolen from him. A broad and unproven conspiracy. That has been widely debunked and repeatedly rejected in court. He simply trying to steal it through. The levers of power says heather cox. Richardson a historian at boston college. This is unprecedented and not since eighteen. Seventy six has a candidate so flagrantly used political power to try to change the outcome of a vote after election day that was during reconstruction when republicans grabbed the presidency for ohio governor. Rutherford hayes with brute political force by pressing congress to steer the result in hayes his favor. But there's still one key difference between now and then in eighteen seventy six the vote margins were legitimately unclear whereas in twenty twenty biden has clear winning margins in the states. Trump is disputing since then states have voted in reforms to the electoral college system designed to prevent a politician from exerting personal influence over the democratic process as the country watch is trump is testing those reforms to ensure the will of the voters is honored.
A Birthday Lesson by Adi Redzic on How To Be Courageous & Be Your Authentic Self
"A birthday lesson by ATI Zik of AUDIE REDZIC DOT COM? Apparently, age only matters if you're cheese. I am pretty cheesy. So every year at my birthday, do cheesy thing and reflect on the lessons from the year before last year I wrote thirty one lessons for thirty one years is my birthday last Monday but instead of writing another list this year, I ask myself what is one theme that I've thought a lot about inexperienced as essential to a life well lived. Courage. Of come to understand that courage is the greatest expression of love. My Angeles said quote courage is the most important of all virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue. Consistently, he practice any virtue erratically but nothing consistently without courage and quote. We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty that change took courage. Make, no mistake. Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is staring fear in the face and still doing what scares us the because is exactly what leads to the fulfillment of our greatest purpose in creation of a truly full life. I've experienced this firsthand. Scared a lot many nights I found myself afraid and overwhelmed eyes filled with tears fear can seem very real. This past year was especially hard and scary but facing my fears even when it was really hard has made all the difference. Shows Campbell called fears are dragons, and it is only when we get close to them that they disappear. Only when we have a drink with the proverbial demon's our greatest fears, parts of ourselves, our psyche we try to disown, do the fear seize to assist. said that we are all as sick as our secrets. It's not fear that keeps US trat. It's hiding fear. Courage therefore liberates us. It is hard to be courageous because much harder living life without courage. In the end we won't regret the things we did, but we regret not showing up in a big way and taking risks. You know why B's courage is the greatest expression of love. I've asked myself if I ever had children where I want their daddy to be a lion or a weasel. All my Kiddos to know that I had a heart of a lion. To quote, Teddy, Roosevelt's I WANNA be the man in the arena not the man on the sidelines being afraid of living of loving of daring greatly and quote. Only when we are brave to, we realize what we're made of and to quote Campbell again, it's a privilege of a lifetime to be who we are and quo. We to choose how he wants to use up our lives. Oh, you choose a lion or a weasel. At the base of every personal or organizational dysfunction, there is fear. So I choose to imagine a world where we all have a bit more courage to face down those fears. That's how we heal that. We leave a better world for those who come after us. Jim Warren Talks about liking quote messy people people who don't fit in a box stay between the lines but whose integrity is greater than any rule book and whose loyalty is stronger than blood and quote. We can't be that person without courage. I WANNA have the courage to be that person. Back urges in you too. We often encourages for some mythical euros dismissing true is reserved for us because of us has the heart of a lion inside. And here's why is really important to be courageous. When we are courageous, we inspire those around us. We help those we love have courage to live authentically fully deeply to. When we are courageous and living truthfully, we let others know that they too can do the same. When we are courageous, we face our deepest fears we heal. We understand life in an entirely different way we risk deep connection. Thrill, and joy where courageous we help those in need we stand up for what is right we leave this world better than we have found it only when we are courageous too. We get to reach our greatest potential only when we are courageous too. We follow our bliss only when we are courageous, our life align are being integrates into we make our children indeed everyone around us know only how deeply we love. Them. To be courageous hard. But if we aren't, how can we say we have lived tore loved well more really live at all. Sometimes the hardest thing in the right thing or the same in being courageous as always the rightist and the hardest thing. How do we get to be courageous? It's simple really if it scares you do it. Take the leap and the net will appear people give up on wonderful things in life because of familiarity is more important than bliss have courage not to do this. Trust that when we are courageous doors will open where there was only a wall before this is proven true many times and all of our lives. And if fears are a dragon's then Neil gaiman puts it quote fairy tales are more than true not because they tell us that dragons exist. But because they tell us that dragons can be beaten and quote. I hope he will slay your own dragons. The world needs you to do that.

Brooks Brothers Bankruptcy: Nostalgia, Anger, and a Bidding War
"The abandonment of the suit helps explain the struggles of one of America's most iconic fashion companies, brooks brothers, the two hundred two year old brand filed for bankruptcy protection on July eight sure blame cove nineteen, but now you'd be wrong. Suits with the three piece with Thai or skirts and high heels used to convey professionalism and competence, they served as symbols that you took your job seriously and respected your customers, the ones you were treating too expensive lunches, madman style, but even before the pandemic they'd become something of an anachronism. Most of us now see little to no relationship between the way we dress in our competence at work, think Mark Zuckerberg's hoodies. Indeed expensive suits can be viewed as a sign of elitism. Put it starkly. The corporate fashion code has gone by the wayside. Brooks brothers struggles represent a cultural shift, not just a Kobe tragedy. Brooks brothers famously dressed all but four presidents. It is the longest continuously operating fashion business in America and until this month it boasted about making its products in America the Brandon's three factories in the states in Massachusetts North, Carolina and New York. CEO Claude Delvecchio is planning to close those factories. We'll get to that in a minute. As you know, apparel sales have been decimated by pandemic closures in April nobody bought clothes whether from Brooks brothers or JC, Penney and other retail casualty, but did you know the actual numbers? Clothing sales fell almost ninety percent in April, according to retail dive, but brooks brothers began looking for a buyer about a year ago. The company operates five hundred stores two hundred of them in the US sales have been flat at about a billion dollars a year since twenty, seventeen, prior to the pandemic bankers estimated the company's value at three hundred to three hundred fifty million dollars. Figure Delvecchio disputed. As, I mentioned the company intends to close its three US factories later this month in the gritty industrial town of. Massachusetts home of its largest factory. Its largest immigrant workforce is being denied severance pay many of those workers, immigrants and refugees women from the Dominican Republic. Vietnam Burma and Nepal have made the company's fine clothing for years so far brooks isn't budging. Despite pleas from the union, and from members of Congress according to the Boston Globe in North Carolina, the factories, the only large employer in the little town of Garland closure would affect that town forever, mayor winifred. Hill, Murphy told The New York Times. In response, CEO, Del Vecchio, says for survival. We must hang onto as much cash as possible, but the globe reports that its chapter eleven filing includes plans to give compensation benefits, severance and bonuses totaling millions to other workers. Brooks brothers will transform, but unlike many of its retail brethren its survival is not in question. In fact, at least one bidder for the company believes it can earn annual revenue of three billion dollars within five years more than triple its current sales, so many buyers are vying for the brand at both the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg used the phrase the races on those making bids. Bids Include Mall Company Simon, property, group, authentic brands, group and W. H. P. Global another bidder is a group of Italian. Investors led by a company called GIO which typically helps fashion companies improve their online presences. The Wall Street Journal possibly with tongue firmly in cheek, considering the state cut of Brooks brothers clothing says Julia wants to quote introduced some European flair to the quintessential American brand. Julia's clients include Armani Maxmara and other designers. Brooks brothers is accepting bids through August fifth, so brooks will survive, but what about it's cheaper? Rival men's warehouse tailored brands which owns men's warehouse and the more upscale Joseph. A. Bank plans to close at least a third of its fifteen hundred stores. It said this month it hasn't filed for chapter eleven protection, but it came close according to CNN. That threat remains even after it stores reopened. Sales have been falling. They were down about eighty percent at Joseph A. Bank in the first week of June, as we all continue to do business in Pajama Pants as we all know nostalgia sells Joseph A.

Teddy Roosevelt's great-grandson says remove the statue
"Last month, New York's Museum of Natural History announced that it's removing a statue of President Theodore Roosevelt that many find objectionable. It's a decision that has the full support of Mark Roosevelt, president of ST John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt. The subject Gatien of other races.

We're all of us in this country. Bound together by the tragedy of racial subject, Gatien and continuing violence and multiple other affronts to black Americans and other people of color. Those of us with power and influence who say we wish to do better are diminished. Fire stalled failed. And woefully insufficient attempts to actually do so. Those with power and influence who will not even acknowledge these wrongs. Are an embarrassment to the nation. If we wish to allow for historical nuance, and I do To continue to recognize Washington and Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt for their very really accomplishment. While also allowing that they like so many of us were complicity in our nation's original and ongoing sin. We must start by admitting that we've failed to acknowledge the depth of that sin. And immediately remove all memorials and statues honoring those who fought a civil war or otherwise worked to perpetuate that scent. And then we should get on with the desperately needed work of up roading, systemic racism wherever it is found.

It doesn't necessarily follow that a nationwide protests over police brutality would. For some become a reason to take action against confederate statues and other controversial monuments. You go on to explain why it does follow away. Yeah I mean if if you're looking at these protests super narrowly than you know Statue of Liberty League doesn't really have much to do with police brutality, but I think if you're looking at these protests thematically that they're not simply about George Floyd, but they're. They're not even simply about. Black lives matters as a larger movement, but they're very much about trying to challenge. A version of American history, trying to challenge a Sort of conception of American life that is narrow and exclusive, and does not have room for black. Is Not have room for native Americans does not have room for all sorts of groups than yeah. Robert de Lis that she was a totally natural target. Right because those monuments don't. They're not history right? They don't. They don't educate anyone anything. They're very much memorial ization and their immoral ization of people for causes that we rightfully see as wrong and evil and with no place in the public sphere. And as you point out that there, there is a history to these statues it doesn't have to do with the founding of the civil war has everything to do with windows statues were erected and put into the public spaces that they're now in there. And when you know that history, you know that they're about the birthright privilege of whites, especially over public spaces in this country. Right so you mentioned that the Teddy Roosevelt? Statute that has been removed from a museum is the American. Museum, but like right, you look at statue. In it's not. The statue isn't of Teddy Roosevelt. conservationist.

"And here's where it gets interesting. Roosevelt is a reformer and the New York machine hated him but they had a problem. They'd had a little bit of corruption. And they were GONNA lose. The next governor's race and all the patronage and all the contracting power and all the money and so they needed somebody to be there front man and so they went to Roosevelt and said look. You're a hero. And we want you to run for Governor and Roosevelt. Who always was willing to take the next opportunity? Came along and in that sense. He's a little bit like Winston Churchill and his life as a continuing series of enormously energetic gambles so he runs for the governor of New York and he runs with the train which is celebrating the charge of San Juan Hill. He has rough riders with him. They have people who can play the bugle. They basically are whipping up the patriotism the if you're a Patriot your Theodore Roosevelt and if you just were one of those people who wanted to haul back with corruption then you're going to vote for though yet so he wins and he is now the governor of the largest state in the country and that leads to a very different situation because it turns out that Roosevelt really is as he has always been a reformer and so he uses the governorship to start reforming New York. State government well. The machine is horrified. I mean they elected him to keep power so that they could use the power for their own enrichment and here he is taking apart their system so they wanna get rid of him. They're desperate to get him out of the state and along comes opportunity for Roosevelt to become the vice presidential nominee. And there's a great story that mckinlay's great adviser one of the greatest managers in American political. History was not in town the day. This decision was made and he turned. He said when he was told about it. Do you realize there's only one heartbeat between that damned cowboy in the White House and in fact. Mckinley was shot and died. And here you are in nineteen o one with Theodore Roosevelt President. Now you could not possibly an early eighteen ninety seven before the Spanish American war. You couldn't possibly have figured out how four short years later Theodore Roosevelt would end up being president but he was president and when he became president he was the most sophisticated populist to occupy the White House in modern times for example he understood that Associated Press which at that time was the dominant method of communicating for the news media in the country. The Associated Press every Sunday night at a huge hole. What it was covering. There's nothing going on. And yet they had to fill up for the Monday morning papers so every Sunday afternoon. Roosevelt would issue a statement which we get picked up and giving huge coverage because it met this associated. Press's need to have something and so Rosa began to become much better known that any president since Abraham Lincoln. He was also just an amazingly personable guy. One point he's boxing in the White House and the Retina of one of his is is detached and he can't see and he doesn't want his wife to learn that he had just lost sight on one of his ice so he kept boxing trying to avoid the I hit him on that side of his head and he would do stuff like this all the time. He was an archer. He was one hundred one of the things that made you. Amazingly popular was in one thousand nine hundred two. He went on hunting trip out west and there was a bear cub that somebody had tied to a tree so roosevelt shooting irresolute to kill bear. Cover you crazy. Well a Brooklyn. Toymaker decided that he would create a stuffed bear. Which at the time was called Teddy's bear and then became. Of course I teddy bear and it became wildly popular. And so here. You have a president who is continuing to be sort of slightly a wild man but is a wild man with a big smile and people love him is so much energy bouncing all over the place so lots of people get to see him and five his daughter Alice marriage. Nicholas Longworth the congressman from Ohio. And was the biggest social event of the decade. So many want set of Roosevelt that to truly understand teddy you have to recognize. He wants to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral really was how Roosevelt operated. It was his whole excitement about life. He wrote constantly published many books and he had a pretty serious sense of what he believed in what he was trying to do. And he was faced with a huge crisis and nineteen ninety-two o two because it was a big coal strike and it became obvious during the coal strike that the mine owners thought that they they were more powerful than the United States Government and Roosevelt brought them into the White House and he said look. Here's the situation. I am the president of the United States. I am prepared to send the. Us Army in to take over your minds. So unless you WANNA lose control of your mind potentially permanently. You'RE GONNA sit down and work out a deal with the strikers and I just want all of your member I'm the president and you're not and it was the first really big imposition of executive power on large businesses in America. And it stunned them. They began also to create a gap between the Reform Republicans and the old guard and the old guard was in favor of the big businesses and the reformers were in favor of the public interest at large and were willing to take on the big businesses in. Roseau clearly was in the group that was in favor of taking on a big business. It wasn't that he was for small things. It's important to remember that. They've been several efforts to build a canal across the isthmus both in Nicaragua and in Panama and actually one of the more fun things was as they were trying to decide whether to go to Nicaragua to Panama. One of the people who favored panel convinced the Post Office to issue a series of stamps showing volcanoes going off in Nicaragua and the house. One the more subtle examples of lobbying because people began to figure out. Well Gosh if they have all those volcanoes maybe that's not the right place to put the canal however Panama was owned by Columbia Columbia had a contract with the French who had failed. There are a number of technical problems. Digging the canal and in addition yellow fever killed the workers and enlarging rate and in nineteen ninety-three probably with the encouragement of the United States. There was a rebellion and Panama and the United States happen to have a warship nearby which happen to block the Colombian Navy from going back to impose order and therefore it was fair to say that Roosevelt invented panel. In order to build the canal he then undertook a project which would take until nineteen fourteen to complete. And if you've ever been to the Panama Canal you realize what huge engineering achievement? This was was also a huge public health achievement. Because in fact Walter Reed was the medical doctor for the US army and he discovered how to stop yellow fever and the result was an enormous improvement in health. So Roosevelt undertakes what is an enormous project and changes history during the Panama Canal has been a major part of world. Congress has been a major part of American national security because it allows us to move ships back and forth between the Atlantic and Pacific dramatically. Faster than if you have to go all the way around South America the Russians and the Japanese of fighting a very very tough war the Russians had been losing but the Japanese were running out of money and so they were pretty desperate to find a solution and Roosevelt invited them. Both to come to New Hampshire to Portsmouth with had a peace conference in Nineteen Zero four and Roosevelt. Got Them to sign an agreement ending the war and nineteen O six. He got the Nobel Peace Prize. Here is a many ways a militaristic personality. A guy who cheerfully went off to war and Cuba guy who cheerfully sent the Navy off to war in Manila and yet he is a very very good diplomat. Very successful and as you can imagine somewhere between the Panama Canal Teddy's bear and everything else he was doing. He was wildly popular. And in one thousand nine hundred four and the only time he really run up to that point national because he was the vice presidential nominee under McKinley nineteen hundred but he beat the contender out and Parker. Three hundred and thirty six to one hundred and forty electoral votes and the margin was just enormous. I would say Roosevelt may have at his peak. Been the most popular American presidents since George Washington that people just really liked him they thought he personified American nationalism that his energy has drive he was also daring in Nineteen Zero Nine. He becomes the first president to ride in a car which at that period was fairly daring thing to do. I've always liked the story. That in one thousand nine hundred six Roosevelt was eating breakfast while he was reading. Upton Sinclair's the jungle which has a scene in which a worker falls into a VAT and becomes sausage and Roosevelt was halfway through his breakfast sausage as he read this scene and he promptly sent up a note Create the Food and Drug Administration. Now I don't know that that's totally true but it's always struck me such a wonderfully apocryphal story. That it should be true. Roosevelt was an activist in foreign policy. In one thousand nine hundred five. He forced the Dominican Republic to install an American economic advisor who's really inappropriate purposes the country's financial director running as an economic protectorate nineteen. O Six. He set up a military protectorate in Cuba. He put pressure on Canada. Boundary Dispute Over Alaska. So again he's constantly doing things because he loved the outdoors and because he was part of the progressive reform wing of the Republican Party. He urged Congress to create the Forest Service so that the government would manage their forest reserves in a professional way he developed almost five times as much land as all of his predecessors combined in fact Roosevelt set aside one hundred ninety four million acres by nineteen o seven. He has a real diplomatic quarrel. Because the Japanese government is very angry about anti-japanese sentiment California and he works out what was called the gentlemen's agreement in which effect we would not pass laws against the Japanese but the Japanese government would restrict Japanese immigration. A So a sort of a face-saving win win. Nineteen hundred eight. His handpicked successor succeeded him. And this was one of the sad moments. If you will American Politics William Howard.

A Brooklyn toymaker decided that he would create a stuffed bear. which at the time was called Teddy's bear? And then became of course I teddy bear. And it became wildly popular, and so here you have a president who is continuing. To be sort of slightly a wild man, but is a wild man with a big smile, and people love him is so much energy bouncing all over the place, so lots of people get to see him and five his daughter Alice Marriage Nicholas Longworth the congressman from Ohio and was the biggest social event of the decade, so many want set of Roosevelt to truly understand teddy you have to recognize. He wants to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral. Really was how Roosevelt operated. It was his whole excitement about life. He wrote constantly published many books, and he had a pretty serious sense of what he believed in what he was trying to do. And, he was faced with a huge crisis and nineteen o two, because it was a big coal strike. And it became obvious during the coal strike. That the mine owners thought. That they they were more powerful than the United States government. And Roosevelt brought them into the White House and he said look. Here's the situation. I am the president of the United States. I am prepared to send the US army in to take over your minds. So unless you WANNA? Lose control of your mind. Potentially permanently, you're gonNA sit down and work out a deal with the strikers. And I just want all of your. Remember I'm the president and you're not. And it was the first really big imposition of executive power on large businesses in America, and it stunned them. They began also to create a gap between the Reform Republicans and the old guard, and the old guard was in favor of the big businesses, and the reformers were in favor of public interest at large, and were willing to take on the big businesses in Roseau clearly was in the group that was in favor of taking on a big business. It wasn't that he was for small. Small things it's important to remember that the been several efforts to build a canal across the isthmus, both in Nicaragua, and in Panama, and actually one of the more fun things was as they were trying to decide whether to go to Nicaragua to Panama one of the people who favored panel convinced the Post Office to issue a series of stamps, showing volcanoes, going off in Nicaragua and the house, one, the more subtle examples of lobbying because people began to figure out well. Gosh, if they have all those volcanoes. Maybe that's not the right place to put the canal. However Panama was owned by Columbia. Columbia had a contract with the French who had failed. There are a number of technical problems. Digging the canal, and in addition, yellow fever killed the workers and enlarging rate and in nineteen ninety-three. Probably with the encouragement of the United. States, there was a rebellion and Panama and the United States happen to have a warship nearby, which happen to block the Colombian, Navy from going back to impose order, and therefore it was fair to say that Roosevelt invented panel in order to build the canal. He then undertook a project which would take until nineteen fourteen to complete, and if you've ever been to the Panama Canal, you realize what huge engineering achievement this was was also a huge public health achievement because. Because in fact, Walter Reed was the medical doctor for the US Army, and he discovered how to stop yellow fever, and the result was an enormous improvement in health, so Roosevelt undertakes what is an enormous project and changes history during the Panama Canal has been a major part of world. Congress has been a major part of American national security because it allows us to move ships back and forth between the Atlantic and Pacific dramatically faster than if you have to go all the way around South America. The Russians and the Japanese of fighting a very very tough war. The Russians had been losing, but the Japanese were running out of money, and so they were pretty desperate to find a solution. An Roosevelt invited them both to come to New Hampshire to Portsmouth with had a peace conference in Nineteen Zero four and Roosevelt got them to sign an agreement ending the war and nineteen o six. He got the Nobel Peace Prize. Here is A. Many ways a militaristic personality, a guy who cheerfully went off to war and Cuba guy who cheerfully sent the Navy off to war in Manila and yet he is a very very good diplomat very successful, and as you can imagine somewhere between the Panama Canal Teddy's bear and everything else he was doing. He was wildly popular, and in nineteen, hundred four, and the only time he really. Run up to that point national because he was the vice presidential nominee under McKinley nineteen hundred, but he beat the. Contender, Alton, Parker, three, hundred and thirty, six to one hundred and forty electoral votes, and the margin was just enormous. I would say Roosevelt may have at his peak been the most popular American presidents since George Washington. That people just really liked him. They thought he personified American. Nationalism that his energy has drive. He was also daring, nineteen, thousand nine. He becomes the first president to ride in a car, which at that.

"I want to share with you. The human whirlwind that was Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt was amazing both as an individual and because in some ways he personified the America that was emerging at the beginning of the twentieth century. I find him to be one of the most extraordinary American presidents just because of the sheer range that he was capable of doing here is obviously extraordinarily bright and wrote a very early age a guide to birds in New York state. He wrote a history of the Naval War of eighteen twelve which is still considered a remarkable book and that by the way was done at a very early age I think in his early twenties. So here you've got. This guy who is born. Relatively weak had asthma and really went to work building up. His physical strength became ultimately a cowboy was driven to be successful to be unique and while he was doing all of that he got involved in politics. But it's fascinating because he didn't fit any pattern that you could have imagined on the one hand he was a Roosevelt and therefore in effect part of the aristocracy of that time. The kind of person who went to Harvard the kind of person who had lots of Nice outfits and went to Nice events on the other hand. He was a politician and he was determined to rise in. Politics is a great line where one of his friend says to him. How can you go out to these German and Irish bars and be hanging out with those normal working? People and Roosevelt's response was simply said luck. Power in this city is in those bars. I want to be part of how decisions are made now. You don't need to go to those bars. But then you're always going to be on the outside and always gonNA come to somebody WHO's in the. Bardi at the decision and I want to be in that room. I WanNa do that and Rosanna. Went out at a very early age and began developing a whole series of activities. He was always a reformer. I think it was partly because he's had this edge to him on. The one hand is sort of a puritan in his toughness in his desire to fix things and improve things on the other hand he loved life so much that he just kind of bubbled over and you have to think of him. Almost has a pot on the stove. Where everyday things are coming out of the pot and you have no idea what's going to happen next. So for example at one point he becomes the police commissioner of New York City and he decides he'll actually enforce the law and the law said the. You couldn't have bars and saloons open on Sunday. So he closed them well. People were enraged because he was violating the way in which they had historically operated and he said well if you want them open change the law but as long as I'm the police commissioner we're closing at which point of course. They fired him because they didn't want to get involved in this and he had a certain lack of common sense in that sense that he was so driven that again and again he would do things with your tape people. He was very active in the Republican Party. And in fact in the election of eighteen ninety six it is Roosevelt and the mayor of Syracuse. Who come up with the best argument against William Jennings Bryan and argument. Which is then picked up by William. Mckinley and McKinley promptly won the elections over. One gives Roseau appointments the number two person in the Navy Department and one weekend. The Secretary of the Navy happens to be gone and Roosevelt on his own. Hook sends out a note saying that he wants. The American Fleet Undo. Each of that point was sitting in Hong Kong and he wants them to go to Manila now. He had no authority to do that. He just did it and luckily for us. When the Spanish American war broke out the American fleet was ready to defeat. The Spanish and the battle of Manila Bay on Roosevelt was heroic. Even though he had totally exceeded his authority before that his wife who he adored had died he was very depressed and he went out to the DAKOTAS. Border Ranch became a genuine rancher again. Remember the guy who starts in life sort of weak physically builds himself up becomes a boxer becomes a writer ends up now leaving behind all of his social friends all of the Harvard connections in his out there ranching and having a great time and recovering from the death of his wife and a one point actually helps arrest several rustler's he's genuinely a man of the West and that becomes an advantage to him when the war breaks out was Spain because he organizes well recalled Colonel Roosevelt's rough riders regiment that he pulled together a volunteers teddy's bringing friends of his from the DAKOTAS. Who are showing up native Americans cowboys and the New York Polo Club is sending people. Because after all it's Theodore Roosevelt so he is blending together these very elegant Ivy League Polo players and these very inelegant cowboys and native Americans into the rough riders. And they actually end up getting along very well and end up charging up San Juan Hill although technically wasn't San Juan Hill but his Kennel Hill towards the San Juan Heights. But everybody at the time said Oh San Juan Hill is. Somebody once said gift to choose. Between fact and legend print the Legend so Roosevelt comes home having led this heroic charge up the hill and he's a genuine war hero. Next the anti-corruption candidate Roselle becomes governor of New York. Then Vice President of the United States..

"His reforms in conservation he went after US steel. I think he also apologized to the Colombian government for helping Panama pull off a COOSA. The Panama Canal can happen. He was just furious furious and he really hated. Woodrow Wilson like so much his entrance into the nineteen twelve presidential races. What led to Woodrow Wilson? Becoming President in the Nita's hated Woodrow Wilson. For being a pacifist. So you know he just was was bitter bitter so bitter so mad he just really wanted to be president you know. He always thought that he could do a better job. And I mean maybe he could have. Yeah well I liked that you refer in one of your shows to his political style as big stick energy which I thought was really funny. Feel like they've belongs t shirts. I can't take credit for that. My researcher Michael Saw Guerrero Came up with that and he was like please argues that Michael Wins a Nobel along the way right yes He was the first American to win a Nobel Prize of any kind And it was partly for a his mediation between the Japanese and the Russians during the Russo Japanese war which some people called zero because it was like an early Mecca mechanized war and they were killing each other in huge numbers. It had the potential to really sort of unsettle things in the Pacific and so he stepped in and you know was sort of a neutral mediator sort of not. There's this one great scene where he calls the Russian diplomat over to Sagamore Hill. To tell him how he thinks he should negotiate and he's playing tennis and he doesn't stop playing tennis while he's talking to the Russian diplomat like embrace from the game. He comes over and he says well. Here's what I think you should do. Here's what I'd recommend. And then he goes back to China and then he comes back and this went on for like ninety minutes can have to imagine what the Russian diplomat was thinking. He was like guys crazy. But you know that was. That was his style. So I do want to hear anything about that Dr seuss stories do so. I can't remember the exact date I feel like. It was nineteen eighteen but Theodore Roosevelt's went to this small town Where he was going to hand out awards to boy scouts who had sold a thousand dollars worth of war bonds and the Geisel Aka. Dr Susan was one of those boys. All the boys are standing up on stage. There are ten of them only has nine medals. Somebody messed up and so you know. He's penny medals on the lapels of all these kids and he gets to theodor geisel medal as. What's this boy doing here? The Boy Scouts Baxter. Just didn't say anything he just like ran guys l. off stage and then apparently that gave Dr Seuss stagefright for the rest of his life. That's incredible now horrifying. I mean like it. It makes sense. It would be so humiliating and you know it wasn't his fault wasn't tr's fault. It was just the thing that happened and And there were implication so tell me how have you been inspired by Teddy Roosevelt to change your life in any way or or have you taken any sort of inspiration from all these stories? I really WANNA try to be more productive and sort of block out my time. Like I'm a big believer in a to do list. Apparently that's not enough. That doesn't help you be productive enough so I think in twenty twenty. I'm going to start blocking out my time And seeing how how that goes or maybe I'll take up judo. We'll see I like that for no carrying a badger around or no. No no no I mean I my cats there about all I can handle pearl kind of looks like a Badger so fee per Woolsey Badger so adorable cat so cute. Tell everyone where they can find the show and so they should start with. Well I mean I personally think you should start from. Tr versus weakness which is the first one because it lays the groundwork for everything that comes next but in terms of my favorite tier versus time is a big one I like tr versus language. Just because it gets into the whole simplified spelling debacle which is one of my favorite stories of all time. Terrorists versus corruption is really fun. 'cause I think you get a really good sense of the unusual style. He used to take on corruption. They're all kind of close to my heart to be honest and it's crazy everything is involved in from like everything football and there's so much we couldn't even get into you know like. I go forever but you know every time I said. Let's add an episode. Oh no no no no no dylan. We're like Erin you're crazy stopping services. Nature's they're all fun funding their own ways and I think what's I can't choose but you know I think what's what's good about. This is that you read the biographies about Tr. And everybody kind of focuses on the thing that they want to focus on doing a podcast like this in this format has kind of allowed us to drop in and out of his life to feature different things and I think it's actually allowed us to get into some of the not so great stuff you know and explore that in a way that I hope is enlightening and thoughtful. So you know. We'll see well respond to that. It's a really excellent series and really really fun and you can get history versus mental floss everywhere from Iheart spotify Stitcher to wherever you get your podcast but What's next for the series? So we are looking at an explorer for the second season. I don't WanNa say who owns boil it but not the explorer. You're probably thinking of So that's fun and then for the third season I have an author. I'd like to feature awesome and we'll see and there's kind of a Theodore Roosevelt connection to all to both of those Nice I mean yeah like he was involved in literally everything Eric. Rt thank you so much for being here. That's part genius this week. We'll be back next week with an episode on elevators. I think it's going to be great.
