Fresh update on "theodore" discussed on On Target with LEPD Firearms and Gun Range
"In Virginia only please gamble responsibly Gambling problem, call 888532. 3500. I begin writing this opening after working a very long shift patrolling the streets of our community, like I've done too many times to remember over the past 27 years as a part time officer. Trying to protect those in need being the voice of reason during that family argument, comforting a child as her mother gets pulled from a deadly crash. Calming a business owner who has come to the realization that theft from their small business seems to be no longer a crime in our city. Helping an elderly man change a tire trying to save the life of an ill person facing death. Facing danger, the best that I can Of course, this did not all happen in a shift, but it happens every day in our community. Or shall I say did happen every day with the honorable men and women from one of the most well respected police forces in this country, the Columbus Police Department. But those days seem to be gone with no signs of return. You see, the dismantling of law and order has now rooted itself deep deep into our way of life. Do you even flinch or look up to the T? V when you hear four shootings last night? Two murders in Linden, an armed Carjacking by another teen. Child killed by gunfire. Months ago, I said to our listeners wake up now or be asleep forever. This is our generation's fight. Do not give up the ship. We have not yet begun to fight. If they come for them today, they will come for you tomorrow stand up for the eye neighbor. This week this week. I am saddened to say hope has begun to escape me and I pray that we can continue to fight. Our mayor, Our City Council president. The countless other city Council members in our city and a county prosecutor have gone and recklessly pursued a narrative in our city that is simply false. It's not true. No facts to support their actions and the fine men and women of law enforcement have grown weary after reporting in previous weeks about the number of interaction CPD annually has with the public. Otherwise known as proactive policing. It now has been reduced to almost nothing due to the hostile environment. These officers are forced to work under and now and now this complicit city leadership has chosen to criminally charge three officers for their actions last year during the riots, the looting, the vandalism, the arson and the unimaginable conduct from supporters of some fictitious, far fetched narrative. Assault charges for using pepper spray to disperse crowds, with one charge. That in the shadows of prosecutor client dismissing curfew violations that were used to gain control of our streets last year, another officer charged with dereliction of duty for potentially arresting the wrong person during the heightened chaos of the dangerous riots. Rocks. Bottles in commercial grade fireworks are being thrown by the peaceful, all loving, misunderstood rioters. Meanwhile, Klein and his regime chose to drop over 4000 charges in the interest of community justice last year. Other officers charged this week with interfering with one civil rights for using pepper sprayed. It clears an area after countless warnings to evacuate Incline Prosecutor client well. His office last year dropped charges for those arrested for failure to disperse rioting, Felonious assault breaking and entering. Appointing a leader at an aircraft disorderly conduct all totaling over 59 charges stemming from just 1 10 Day period. Not one to judge of the officers conduct was within the policies of the department. I honestly don't know if they were within the policy but to charge an officer with assault during these conditions of civil unrest and anarchy. Has indeed send a message to all officers on the street. Not sure anymore. What to say What to do. History teaches us a civilized society does not sustain itself when evil exist in leadership. Just look at the past, draw your own conclusions. Research for yourself how great societies fell. You may be surprised at the similarities to what we are seeing today. I do know we must keep fighting for the truth to be heard. The protectors amongst us must fight for the sheep. But the sheep if you are a sheep You have the masses to make changes to the herd. The sheep must begin to defend themselves. We must get motivated to fight for what is right for the good that still exists amongst us. We have to challenge the harmful false narratives that are not rooted in truth, Morals are values. This isn't for us anymore. It's for your Children. Your grandchildren is for the next generation. Who will know nothing but a city that once was Imagine that they will not know the city that we knew the one that used to be good. And now resembles a third world country at best. Sometimes when you look at how uncivilized and lawless we become I will leave you with this quote and encourage you to remember something that I wrote years ago. Once character is never judged during the good times, but rather is a reflection of how we stood after going through the toughest of times. Theodore Roosevelt once wrote this when faced with the toughest of times. It is not the critic who counts. It is not the critic who counts not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who was actually in the arena. Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly who airs and comes up short again and again because there is no effort without air or shortcomings. But he who knows the great enthusiasms who knows the great devotions who spins himself forward the calls. Who has the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be. With those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat today we must stand up for what is right. Sit down and await our destiny Live from LVPD Firearms range and training facility.

How extreme weather threatens the internet
"Your phone may be wireless but the internet infrastructure it depends on is not our access to the internet is all on fiber optic cable and that capable of courses either run underground or strung across telephone poles. David theodore help develop broadband technology in the nineteen eighties and is now co founder of a company called climate. resilient internet. He says extreme storms and flooding can damage fiber optic cables and 'cause internet outages that have major consequences data underlies of all of our critical infrastructure. If you're a hospital and you lose internet access for hours or days. We have no access to patient records. Hospital information systems.

This system will allow information to travel between individual rooftops and data centers. That are out of harm's way. The system does not provide as much bandwidth as fiber but theodore says that in an emergency it can keep data flowing and critical institutions operating

"And just die the way people died in ordinary life. He wanted to die a heroic death if he died at all and what he did die eventually is probably the indian dot. Yes he didn't get to go off to france but he did die of a heart attack and it came right after his sixtieth birthday and it was about the time that his doctor said you know you might die by that time. we'll bill. What do you hope people when they when they finish your book what are they. What do you like walk away with thinking or chewing on after they finish your book that there is a place for a grand vision of the world in causing people to attempt. Great things and roosevelt is one of the most alcohol in laudably ambitious figures to hold the white house. He set high standards for himself and he came. It did pretty well in living up to them at to some degree. Those high standards were part of this unrealistic view of the world s romantic view of the world. So they can. Even an unrealistic view of the world can have worthy consequences but roselle also was very shrewd. Wow he was president and keeping his romanticism in check. And this is if there's one thing to keep straight about. Roosevelt roosevelt vigil was separable from roosevelt. The president a greater sense than is often the case. So i said that roosevelt before he being at present was as warmonger. Roosevelt had several opportunities while he was president to push the united states into war but he refused so roosevelt should that the president is this different unnecessarily different person but he has a different function than an individual so before indians and now front. From the standpoint of the biographer. The presidency is the boring part of roosevelt's life because presidents do what presidents do before roosevelt was president. Is this really colorful character in. And you can see his personal trajectory rising. After he's president you can see the trajectory falling. But he's still is very interesting. Figure very does dramatic stuff president. He's kind of boring. But roosevelt understood the purpose for that. What you don't want is somebody who as president is trying to play out these inner struggles these provisions in all of this other stuff so roosevelt is a really good example of how you can be this very interesting character you can really be a character and still be a really good president so in that regard roosevelt is kind of a model of haddock cheap. The personal separate from the professional to the advantage about will build. This has been a great conversation. Where can people go to learn more about the book and the rest of your work. Well the book is available everywhere. Books are sold. Book was published in the nineteen nineties but is in most bookstores. If you go there and certainly it's available on amazon.

"He had a good time like he genuinely enjoyed being president. There's some presidents that they described like i hated. It was like the worst job ever had like taft. I don't think really enjoyed being president. What happened after his presidency. Like how did his romanticism. Keep pushing him when he didn't have anything to do. So part of roosevelt's problem in this regard was that he became president too soon. He became president. We was forty one point. And that's that's young for such responsibility. Of course what it meant was that he's gonna be fifty when he the white house. So what's he gonna do for his second act and he. He thought okay well. He handpicked his successor. William howard taft and so. He thought that taft saw ida i with him on important issues. So okay good. I got my guy in there so now i'm gonna go and give them a chance to form his own presidency to make his reputation off. He went to africa. Which is of course where somebody like. Theodore roosevelt would go he. He basically hunted all the big game. There was in north america. So where's even bigger. Am elephants in africa. So off he went to africa. It was a safari that it always wanted to go on and now he had a chance and he was able to do it under the auspices of science roosevelt with a conservationist now to modern sensibilities. That might seem weird. Roosevelt slaughtered more animals in his life than all but probably a handful of other people in his age. So what does that have to do with conservation. Well in fact. Roosevelt helped found one of the first and most important conservation groups the boone and crockett club america and they conserve natural resources. So they have something to hunt in the future. They didn't want to kill all the animals and so it wasn't uncommon for roosevelt to go off to africa and shoot elephants and rhinos and and other big game for the purposes of science and conservation because he nature that the the elephants were sent back to the museum of natural history and stopped and put on display there and so people say that's an elephant. Looks like and this of course before television or anything like that and so yes he could do it for science. You could do it for conservation but he could also do it because there that there was still in roosevelt that each that okay. I have to prove myself. This has become part result so he had to keep proving himself. He went off to africa and he proved himself by standing there in front of a charging elephant and killing it not himself. Getting killed. not flinching. That was good but then he came back to america. He finally came as a year in africa nearly and had to come back. What's he gonna do now. And some people who were unsatisfied. With the way. Mckinley at handled the president's she began whispering. Roosevelt sierra. You know he's just not doing what you thought he should. He's betraying you and didn't require too much whispering to get roosevelt to say you know what i need to take over again. In those days there was not a constitutional third terms and technically would have been searching anyway because he he had inherited the first term but in any event he decides to run again now. This was perhaps roosevelt at his least admirable because he he talked himself into believing that his country needed him. The progressive movement needed him really. It was roosevelt. Needed something to do. He needed a challenge and the challenge was to run for president as a third party candidate. Third parties had never done well in american politics. Roosevelt did better than any third party candidate before or after fail. He didn't get elected and he destroyed the the elective political career. William howard taft. He split the republican party costing taft himself both the election which went to a democrat. Woodrow wilson so that's what he did and then having lost that when he got to do something else now he's still still a relatively young man. He's in his early fifties. And what's he gonna do. Well he decides to go on a trip of exploration into amazon yet. He's going to follow this river from its headwaters. People knew about the headwaters and they sort of knew what they thought were. Where the part of the stream but the party in between was unknown as it was called the river of doubt and roosevelt was going to join this expedition. Go down and explore this river after hunting big game in africa or high. Are you gonna top that the explorer type the the one who discovers great things will result inevitably discovered anything. But this is his chance. Now when you get to this point in roosevelt's life yet start to think that there must be something more about this and one of the things that i. At any rate concluded about roosevelt is his activism his activities his inability to slow down his inability to just relax and absorb puts around him. This derived from. I think from a certain kind of background. Well in our day we call it depression that he was dealing with a he. Depression ran in the roosevelt family. There were suicides in the family. Roosevelt had a relatively young age quoted. The roman writer horace. Who said black care can never catch a rider who gallops fast enough and it seemed to me that roosevelt was doing that galloping his whole life and so we always had to find something else there was another thing that just before he was married just before he married alice. Lee became alice lee. Roosevelt he underwent physical exam. This was not in those as in especially for somebody who had had this background. Illness like roosevelt and as roosevelt told later the doctor heard an irregularity in his heartbeat. There was a heart murmur. Our neighbor them or something and the doctor suggested that roosevelt ought to take life easy because he if he strained himself too much. And i just fall over dead. But roosevelt concluded now. Now i'm not gonna that way. I'm living my life to the fullest. And if i die before they sexy so bid so in going to the amazon one can look at roosevelt's actions and think okay. He doesn't know what to do with himself. There's really no act after the presidency in american life that would suit roosevelt so firstly went to africa. If he had been killed by a charging elephant he would have been okay with that. And i think that part of thought of okay if i die of fever in the jungles of amazonia. I'm okay with that. What a way to go how in fact he nearly did die a fever in the amazon but he survived. You came out of that. They still has to figure out what to do but he got out just in time for world war one to break out and he decides yes. That's what i'm gonna do. I'm gonna reprieve my actions in the spanish american but this time on a bigger scale so instead of raising regimen of volunteers he proposes to president woodrow wilson to raise two divisions volunteers and he goes to the white house and says this is what i wanna do. And wilson says now and for roosevelt in fact at one point roosevelt said. Aren't you kind of old. Somebody toll roads are kind of old to be volunteering to go off and fight in france but rose said i cannot think of a better epitaph than theodore. Roosevelt died on the battlefield in france. So it's almost as though that romantic streak in roosevelt was stronger than ever. He was going to go down to a hero's death. The last thing roosevelt wanted was to get old and.

"And now back to the show so his first wife dies allah and he had this romantic ideal of a love. That your first wife dies you don't remarry the and he told his sister that i'm not going to remarry well kuenz up remarrying. And it was edith. Carrow his childhood friend and he even wrote letters to his sister. You know how. I feel about getting remarried. But i feel right thing to do and it's sort of like this whirlwind wedding kind of under the radar then it becomes this family man desert anything we can learn about. Tr's romanticism through as family life. Well we see with roosevelt. Is this sort of full blown. Romanticism of his boyhood. That continually runs up against reality because romanticism is at its heart an unrealistic view of the world. Now we all have certain unrealistic views of the world and they have to be reconciled with reality at times and roosevelt was able to retain some of these but when he rian countered edith carrow. He realized that well he was attracted to her and as you suggest he felt guilty about it because there you're only supposed to have one true love those those romantic knights of the round table and all this other stuff. You know this one true love for each of us and he. He talked about how he didn't know what he would do. Should he be fortunate enough to get to heaven after he died because he'd have to explain to alice that he had been unfaithful to her after her. Death by marrying edith. Anyway but he does and they have children and the kids. The kids aren't really part of roosevelt's romantic vision but one of the things they do. Is they make roosevelt. Really attractive to voters. And because okay. Here's this family man. And he's young. Roosevelt was remarkably young in all of this stuff. He's gonna be when he does become president. He'll be the youngest president in american history till then and since then but the fact that he had kids it demonstrated a kind of vitality often. The gorilla of someone is measured by okay. Did you have kids. And he had bunches of kids he had six kids and and the kids were all running around and so while he was in politics even when he got to the white house he was the first president. I think since lincoln who had young kids in the white house and this was this was fantastic a lot of people because they tended to look on politicians as he's old guys in stuffy suits and roosevelt wasn't stuffy and had children the running around. The children are doing what kids did. So some of roosevelt's romantic view. Part of it makes him appealing to the american public because they have a romantic view to but other things that made him appealing. We're just the fact that he seemed to be this honest guy and he had kids and you paid attention to the kids and he used to play with the kids and he would let the kids have pets and sometimes they would bring horses into the white house. There's one case where the brought a small horse in the elevator of the white house. The kids were up to what kids do. And so roosevelt became an in decades later when john kennedy became president and his two kids. They made kennedy and jackie his wife all add more appealing based on what cute kids this and they said the same thing about theodore roosevelt and his children so we talked about after the. He got involved in politics early on in his young adult life. Flood it for a little bit and got back in and he was primarily involved in new york politics but eventually he gets new national party catches they see dea roosevelt like his guys got potential and he finds himself assistant secretary of the navy and he's in a position now where he's able to have some amount of influence on world affairs and it allows him and he kind of the way you described it allows him to start making up the deficiency that his dad had of not fighting and more he tells about his involvement is assistant secretary of navy and how that eventually maeve lead up to the involvement of him charging up san juan hill on the spanish american war. Sure so roosevelt was really talented. Guy and people recognize the talent in roosevelt but he was basically in the wrong political party because he was of a reformist frame of mind a time when the republican party was growing more conservative by the year by the decade so he was an odd fit and he was also he was also this. I'll at least before he goes off to war. He was somebody who couldn't get elected outside the narrow circle so rosental wanted to get back into politics but the republican bosses didn't like it and so they wouldn't give him the nomination so what he did was he went back into politics. But as an pointed official rather than an elected official he couldn't get elected but he could get a point and he was good at what he did so he was a civil service commissioner than he was on the new york police board and while he was in those positions he would campaign on behalf of the republican candidates for elective office. He campaign and eighteen. Ninety six for william mckinley and was a stout campaigner for mckinley mckinley. One he was in line to get a job. This way. people get appointed jobs in national administrations and roosevelt. He dreamed dreamed. Oh maybe i'll be secretary of state. He was very interested in foreign affairs but that was above his grade but instead he got the job of assistant navy secretary now. This was assistant heights. Sound relatively small potatoes but for roosevelt wasn't in part because the cabinet secretary. His boss was somebody who wasn't particularly interested in running the office. And so he let the daytime running the office go to roosevelt but also because roosevelt had grand ideas about what the united states ought to be doing in the world. Roosevelt looked upon the united states as a bigger version of himself and just as he looked for a chance to prove himself to prove himself strong and brave and upright and all this he looked for opportunities for the united states to prove its health strong and brave and upright and when a rebellion against spanish colonial rule broke out in cuba. Eighteen ninety five roosevelt was all for american intervention and he kept as assistant navy secretary. He kept pushing william mckinley. His boss presents saying you got to intervene. You've got intervene and finally not by himself but in conjunction with other people roosevelt talk mckinley into declaring war against spain into intervening in the cuban uprising against spain and felt well a lot of people thought the united states ought to do it to relieve the suffering of the cuban people. Roosevelt didn't really care that much about pork. Cuban people he cared about was the opportunity for the united states to to step up and play the role..

"So roosevelt became a hunter and of course in his reading of history. Many of the great heroes. American history. The daniel boone types. They were hunters and so roosevelt associated hunting with the kind of manhood that he wanted to go into. Because if you could test yourself against fearsome than boy that was a real measure of your courage and of your skill of your strength you start out with birds. That's no big deal. Would you advance from birds. Large animals to dear to moose moose a pretty dangerous bears and things like that. So roosevelt kind of grew into this idea that what he wanted to be. In addition to being strongest heart was being an outdoorsman and this in his teen years and of course in those days if you grew up in new york city you don't get and go hunting in new york city. Had to go someplace else so he would go to maine for example that was the the nearest more or less wilderness area. But like very many easterners in those days. His imagination naturally flew to the american west because the west was that part of the country that in some ways was quintessentially american. It was the part of the country that continually remade itself. It's what made america different from europe. America had this frontier. America had this unsettled region out to the west. And of course in the west there were buffalo. There were grizzly bears. There were the the big game of north america so from the time he was a teenager. Roosevelt began dreaming of. I'm gonna go west. And i'm going to test myself against the great beasts of the western wilderness That idea of getting back to nature. That's an important part of romanticism. Right like the you want to get in touch with nature. Because that's what you do as a romantic and this is especially true in america because there is this notion there's long been this notion of the unspoiled eden that greeted english colonists when they arrived in the early seventeenth century and it's partly connected to protestant theological view of the garden of eden. The fall in and all this other stuff but it's also fitted also seem to play out in front of american is and so if they had stayed in england if they had stayed in other parts of europe they wouldn't have been able to identify with this wilderness. Because you get very far from the populated east and fact the land looks pretty wild and if you get across the mississippi and across missouri than it still is while they were wild indians out there and and that seemed to make this connection with his earlier time and it was possible to imagine. This was the era of the so-called noble savage the unspoiled person of the wilderness. This lead over into some of the books that roosevelt as read as a kid. James damore cooper and the last of the mohicans in slayer in all of this and so he had these models in his head of this is this is what the real america is. Like and roosevelt recognized that a silk stocking kid from new york know. That's not the real america. The real america is the daniel boone character davy crockett the the frontiers mun and there was part of him. That really wanted to either be come that or to test himself against stat model to see if he could become that. If opportunity rose are says a child he exercised built. His body helped him overcome his asthma. That's that sort of origin story of a romantic thing to as well but then also he developed his love of nature that you would see throughout his life and we'll talk about this later on his cattle ranching and then also work in conservation and some big hunting trips but you mentioned his father and you talk a lot about the influence that theodore roosevelt senior had on theodore roosevelt did theodore roosevelt new junior. Did he have like a romantic view of his dad. He did probably more than most sons have of their fathers in part because there seemed to be such a gulf between theodore senior and theodore the younger the father as feeder junior. The younger said he was. He was the finest man he had ever known. He was strong. He was big and muscular and sturdy in a way that the young kid was not now to some degree. That's true of every adult father and little boy son you know. That distinction is always there but in roosevelt's case as far as he knew his father had never been sick a day in his life. Now this would change. His father died of cancer. When roosevelt was in college but as a child he looked at his father as this tower of strength. Has this brave persian. Is this handsome person as this should rock of stability and and young. Peter wanted to be like that now of course as he grew older he realized okay. It's not exactly that it's not. My father isn't everything i thought. And and there was an aspect of this that really sort of intensified roosevelt's desire to prove himself and that was that during the civil war which came along when roosevelt started. Roosevelt was three years old so he was a young kid in new york and he saw the troops marching around new york. He was there amid the the draft riots in eighteen sixty three and and so he was really swept up in the war but he the war came home. The civil war came home for young theodore roosevelt. And way that it's not for most people because his family had divided loyalties his mother and grandmothers maternal grandmother who lived with him at this time. They were both from georgia and so they were rooting for the south. He had uncles fought for the confederacy and his father. However was a unionist northerner except that his father did not put on the uniform of the union. Army did not fight now he. His father didn't fight primarily because his mother said. I cannot bear the idea that you might kill my brothers so what theodore senior did was to take a civilian position and it was already responsible important position. He went from camp to camp. Persuading the soldiers to allow the war department is send their paychecks to their wives and their dependents at home so that they wouldn't be in want while the fathers were are fighting so it was a very worthy thing he probably did more good for the union cause in that function than if he had put on a uniform and bene- a staff an aide to general which is probably would have done but to the young kid and to the the teenager growing into being civilian during wartime that was falling short and when theodore roosevelt would hear his age peers. Tell stories of what their fathers had done. During the war he just had to keep embarrassingly silent because his father didn't have any war stories and theodore roosevelt's sister. He had two sisters and his younger sister recall.

"We near the anniversary of the first kovic shutdowns in illinois minneap. Chicago's day laborers are finding themselves. In dire straits months of shutdowns and economic devastation have made finding work and already scarce commodity in recent years. More difficult than other than ever and the circumstances of many of their lives make them particularly. Vulnerable to infection and financial devastation. Joining us to talk about the outlook for day. Laborers are rigoberto compost day. Labor organizer for the nonprofit latino. You're of chicago and nick theodore professor at the university of illinois at chicago department of urban planning and policy. Gentlemen thank you both for joining us. Rigoberta compost start with you please. Let's sketch out how the day labor market Typically works kind of work. People find how they find that working normal times it has been affected during the pandemic according to lay out the challenges that the to another they wake up every day with hopes of trying to find work and of whether that means they able to pick something up It really comes down to what happens. one there at the corner hiring site Sometimes they're lucky. Things are now but the reality is is that the pandemic has really made that's attrition. Law were difficult. I mean we're talking about being able to around being able to pay for food your bells your phone on and honestly the challenge. There is that they're having to make financial decisions. That are really hard. And when you add add taking care of yourself with cohen in nixon really challenging. Because you get sick. That's a day we from work And that's money that you need to date right. Now nick theodore what aspects of the lives of day laborers make them especially vulnerable during the pandemic both the financial problems but also infection. Rigo saying i think the issue of having to work often in close contact with other workers on a day-to-day basis. Not always knowing who your coworkers might be. There's a lot of exposure issues. That i think make things very difficult and we're talking about low. Wage work insecure work overall. And so the pressure to return to the day labor hiring site that try to find work day after day the despite hazards that might exist without pressure is very real. Labor's rigoberto your organization. Latino union of chicago offers support day laborers eating them through this difficult time At the moment and we are going out there trying to offer. Td were handing out cash assistance. That we've been able to obtain Sharing information on food pantries offer them a a support group where they can bent and kind of process. How they're feeling at the moment at the reality is is that a lot of the needs will beyond just being able to solve what's happening now out of. It's also just based on a lot of intentional working on policy. Change systemic change and you know just one basic question that comes to mind rigoberto. Are they finding work in these times Honestly it's on and off mostly off of the reality is that it has affected the market and even though it's affected the market. They're waking up every day of really early With hopes that those still find something. A the reality is is that Even want sometimes people come looking for them There are people that are taking advantage of the fact that they are Immigrant workers looking for work at a cornerside. And so they're not paying much at all and have needs to nick. The last year saw an economic downturn in most areas though of course we know some sectors some industries did remain robust. What effect has the economy. This last year had on the labor market for these workers. It prevents attacked. I think both in terms of the slowdown a related to the pandemic of the amount of construction and other work that day laborers are doing. But then there's the bigger question about workers who are being displaced from other industries so is restaurants and bars shutdown as other sectors of the economy. Shutdown do the krona virus pandemic workers were being expelled from those industries. And for many of them they turned up on the street corner looking for day labor work for those day laborers. This is almost employment of last resort. And so they are putting additional pressure on day labor markets which puts pressure on wages in java bail ability so during every downturn whether it's the pandemic or the great recession a decade ago. Every time we see a downturn in the economy the number of people looking for day labor work increases dramatically and grits hardships across this economy

Pablo Escobar's Hippos Are Out of Control
"A couple of years ago. I read a novella called river of teeth by sarah gaily. The concept of the story is based on a real world event. That almost happened smack. In the early twentieth century a bill was proposed in the us house of representatives and informally supported by theodore roosevelt. The us should import hippopotamuses from africa to the swamp lands of the gulf coast and breed them as an alternative meat source for americans basically starting a new industry in the us of hill. Ranching as you know this proposal never came to be but gala novella now collected into a volume with a sequel and some other stories under the title american hippo imagines magic in alternative history where this did happen only set fifty years earlier. You get kind of gulf coast cowboys on hippos tape story. It's great loved it. I highly recommend it. Or if you just wanna dig more into the facts. I put link in the show notes to a long read on the history of the hippo proposal by john. Mouallem will the reason i bring. This up is because americans in the early twentieth century. Were not the only ones with dreams of becoming hbo ranchers decades later pablo escobar would also get into the hippo game importing four of them to live on his estate in columbia and now forty some years later they have bread and multiplied and are spreading all over the wetlands of north bogo. Talk causing mayhem. Consternation and some real concerns for the region. Scientists say this now invasive species is competing with native wildlife polluting local waterways attacking humans and they project will grow in number two fifteen hundred hippos by twenty forty at that point the scientists say they will be nearly impossible to control their environmental impacts will be irreversible but never mind controlling fifteen hundred hippos. How do you control a dozen or even just one. That's not like you can just google it you know. In colombian officials are not hippopotamus experts and there are unique challenges levied upon this specific situation. I quoting the washington post in their natural habitat. Hippos spend the long dry season crowded into waterways shrunk to puddles. They're vulnerable to disease and predation not to mention one. Another as bad tempers but tropical columbia is hippo paradise. Environmental agency researcher david vary lopez said rain is abundant food is plentiful and they're no carnivores large enough to pose a threat. The animals spend five hours a day grazing on grasses and the rest of their time basking in the cool waters of the magdalena and surrounding lakes and quotes report from columbia not being the hippos natural habitat having in effect on the hippos behavior it also affects the surrounding communities impression of the hippos. The officials tasked with dismantling escobar's estate back in the ninety s. Weren't sure what to do with the one male and three female hippos so they just let them roam instead of sending them to a zoo with his other animals and mostly they did that because the hippos were massive and aggressive no one really wanted to approach them so we'll get the harm be and letting them go well. Kenyans and other african communities with native hippo populations could tell you a whole heck of a lot. You've got hippos from each sex so they can breathe for one and they're also hugely destructive to the environment into other animals. Hippos killed more humans each year than other large mammal. But when you don't grow up around hippos you don't necessarily know that so the hippos have become something of a mascot and columbia. According again gift shops in nearby puerto trail info sell hippo keychains and t shirts at the amusement park that was built on the site of escobar's former pleasure palace. Visitors can tour the lake where several dozen hippos now live occasionally one will plot into a nearby community looking as blase as a shopper on his way to the grocery store the hippopotamuses. The town pets resident claudia. Patricia camacho told the local news in two thousand eighteen. You could say that he now takes to the streets as if it were his own and quote but the hippos aren't as friendly as they may look on t shirts. They terrorize farms and hurt residents at times. The government has ordered the hippos to be shot on sight but there's been pushback from animal rights organizations and local residents so then they tried putting the hippos in a pin but and this is one of the mini quotes from this article. That honestly sounds straight hundred jurassic park. Etcheverry said i didn't know they could jump hikes so then they tried big pens with high enough walls that the hippos can't jump onto them. They've also been focused on trying to prevent them from breeding by cuisine. And then castrating the males. They've been through a steep hippo anatomy learning curve on that front though. Not even being sure where to look. For the animals external reproductive organs turns out. It's a bit complicated. They finally got a system of castration down. But it's costly and complicated so they can only do about one year but the estimates are that the population grows ten percent a year and apart from the bodily harm humans and the destruction of farms the hippos as they multiply host of other problems quoting again. A twenty twenty study of hippo inhabited lakes found that nutrients from the animal's feces were fuelling huge. Plumes of area an algae. These intern reduced the oxygen content of the water. Making it toxic to fish.

Cat may have actually killed the rap but he wrote in a very dead rat showed up on zoom call with a rat in his mouth and he was not giving up that rat. I asked the participants. How do you think. I should get this out of his mouth. And they're like trade for treating like i don't ever treat. I don't have a treat better than freshly dead rats. So i trust him outside and i don't know where he went with the rat but about half an hour later he came in with half a rack. So that's probably the strangest thing he's ever eaten Probably got a few comments from the rest of the zoom meeting. Pretty much stole the show. That was that was all anybody can talk about after the vote the The zoom cocktail hour was theo and his rat. Few people grabs screenshots of all of the speakers looking appalled beholding at this still but some nice to have a bit of vermin control around the house as well as comic relief absolutely says i'm any other sort of interesting stories coming to mind at the moment. I think i think one of the big authors of theo's life as he was invited to be the guest of honor at the hello belly gala in pittsburgh a few years ago and i thought nothing really hilarious happened other than you know theodore being theodore but it was it was really great just to think about while his owner is in prison and he got an eight year sentence so he'll be in prison until theo is close to ten years old if he serves his full sentence and we got put up in a really nice hotel. Theo were a little black tie. And we all got dressed up went to this gala to help raise money for pit bulls and he was a guest of honor along with a couple of other famous and it was just so cool to see this dog sleeping in a luxury hotel in the they brought in his own little bad and wearing his little black tie and just thinking about the man who wanted him to fight who inflicted all of this cruelty on his friends and relatives and thinking about him being in a prison cell and his fitful living the good life.

"Go visit nursing homes. You can go There's there's lots of different options. but he just. He loves visiting so much. That i think he would really enjoy that work. So hopefully i will get him certified when we're allowed to visit again right now. There's an awesome program with Animal farm foundation called pets together where you could do. Virtual visits all these nursing homes that you're not allowed to go visit anymore. The facilities can sign up for a slot and they have like six people with six different animals. And you can sign up for which facility you want to virtually visit and you just talk about. Your dog has some do some tricks. I visited once with one of my chickens and she just sat on my lap and stared at the camera. Interesting actually just on the do have you had any feedback from the nursing home end because i think sia- much of that relies on the physical and the presence of that animal. That and i'm not saying the that they don't get The enjoyment from seeing it from from zoom meeting. But just interesting to see. I'm sure it's not as good. I'm sure it's not as fun as pedic the animal but i would. I first started visiting. I've done most of my therapy dog visits with nursing homes because they thought you know. I'm such an animal person at if i was ever in a place where i couldn't care for an animal of violent i would really love for somebody to bring a pet for me to pat and talk to so i think zoom meetings of animals is better than nothing but we are all looking forward to being able to see people in person again especially theodore so how is still with kids with little kids. Yeah he he likes. Everybody has not met anyone. He didn't like he. He got scared by a toddler when he was younger. A little tiny came up at latched onto his arm. So for a little. While after that he was a little wary he would keep some space from little kids but We had some about fencing. A few years ago and is wife would show up with their toddler. Toddler would sit in the truck and just dropped goldfish crackers in it are pretty quickly learned. Like they don't all barnacle onto your neck and most of them are pretty cool and he really likes kids now. So he's there's really not any humans that he was living that he doesn't like excellent. Do you have any favorite games that he plays with with site with with humans humans. He'll he well when he was a little more sound. He liked to play tug of war. He does have a pretty good natural. Fetch on him. He will grab a toy and bring it back but his legs are put together so badly that i don't do a whole lot of repetitive. Running back and forth He he likes giving house Put one caught on each of my shoulders. Some and nibble on my nose. Lick my head. And he's He's a very tactile dog. He he likes to be touching people whenever he possibly possibly can spur us. So did you take him traveling around much when he was younger. Yeah yeah when. I was allowed to travel. I teach seminars on shelter. Topics dog aggression defensive handling and his favorite thing creek ovid if it was within driving distance.

This was pre covid times and then they both left at the same time and he followed them to the gate and they walked out the gate and he stood at the gate. I'm like i'm your mother.

I feel really good that he loves his pet sitters so much to say a particular area with the assistance sort of dogs. That ep looking with theodore. Yeah i mean. I i would look into being a therapy dog. So that is not a service dog. It's not helping me with anything. It is visiting nursing homes visiting By last two therapy dogs were both large breed. Kind of scary looking dogs. One looked like a melon wild. Mix mod- like it was a purebred doberman and we were at the. va hospice.

I travel a lot for work. I have amazing pet sitters. And she left him alone and he got into the kitchen and he got into her bag of should a cooler full of food that she brought with her and he scattered teabags inc keen wan-su kinds of things. Not just in the kitchen. He took it into the bedroom next door and Took them up on the bed so they were boxes of soup on the there was all it was just spectacular was a multi room installation piece. I think it was three rooms in total that he had just completely exploded her food collection. Note she she knows that you always take a picture so she took a picture and send it to me. I keep an epic title of some sort and there have been a lot of art installations over the years. I tried to leave him with some. He likes cardboard and that is at least easy to pick up inexpensive. So i i give him something that he can tear into small pieces and that that seems to satisfy the Creative creative side actually ended starting a whole facebook page. Called pit bull art collective. So if you have a creative dog at home and you have a good picture of their artwork preferably with the in it you can submit it to people art collective but it has to have a title the artist's name and the date and location and you can put up an artist statement if you will. It's if you can laugh. It is a lot better than getting frustrating because you know punishing dog after the fact that absolutely nothing.

"It was called that evening but Theodore Roosevelt supporters didn't mind a little chill. They were just excited to see their candidate up-close bundled in thick coats. They waited patiently outside the Gill Patrick Hotel on Third Street eager for a glimpse of the former president. Though. The weather was frosty that night it was nothing compared to the bitter fight for the US presidency with just weeks until the election tensions were running high but Roosevelt paid little attention to the drama of the campaign and focused instead on shoring up his support wherever he went large crowds. Cheered him on fifty-three-year-old Roosevelt had already served two terms as president. But this time he faced an uphill climb. To the white. House, as a third party candidate, he didn't have the infrastructure of the Republican or Democratic parties. So his frequent stops around the country were vital part of his plan. He would need every single vote if he was to win his way back to the Oval Office, which is probably why on October fourteenth he stopped for a moment to greet the supporters who waited outside his Milwaukee Hotel. After a few moments shaking hands Roosevelt climbed into his open top car. He took off his hat and waved at the crowd eliciting a cheer that nearly muffled the sound of a gunshot from just a few feet away thirty six year old John Shrank pulled revolver and fired a round into the candidates chest. As Roosevelt's Naga for restrained shrank the crowd surrounding him turned vicious just as they were poised to exact vengeance on the would be assassin Roosevelt called out for restraint between strained breaths asked for shrank to be brought forward to him. Roosevelt demanded his attacker explain himself but only received a steely silence in reply seeing that he wouldn't get a straight answer Roosevelt ordered the shooter be turned over to the police only then did he reach inside his coat to feel where the bullet him? He felt a hole, the size of a small coin in his shirt and told an. He Pink Me. He then coughed three times into his hand to make sure there was no blood satisfied that the bullet hadn't punctured his lung. He ordered his driver to take into the Milwaukee Auditorium injured or not he was determined to give his speech. Minutes later Roosevelt time stage and ask for silence from the crowd as the audience quieted down. Roosevelt announced. I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot. He then pulled from his coat pocket, a fifty page speech that was folded in half right through the centre was the hole through which the bullet traveled the thick speech as well as his woollen coat had helped slow the bullet down. Waving the papers in the Air Roosevelt said I was going to make a long speech and it probably saved me from the bullet going into my heart. So I cannot make very long speech, but I will try my best. The fifty three year old former president proceeded to speak for eighty four minutes while he talked. He usually glared at the AIDS who were standing by in case he collapsed seemingly annoyed that they thought a single bullet could stop him. Roosevelt was willing to do whatever it took to get back in the White House even if it killed him. Up Next will examine Roosevelt's nineteen twelve presidential campaign and the reason John Shrank wanted him dead.

"During and after the siege of Santiago one of the last major operations of the Spanish American war. Us troops stationed in Santiago. Cuba were beset by malaria and yellow fever. Thousands of men were sick and dying but the McKinley administration planned to keep the troops in Cuba until peace talks were over and until they were healthy. According to some sources there was a real fear that six soldiers would come back to the states and start a yellow fever epidemic. But the situation was growing untenable and near the end of July General William shafter commander of the Fifth Corps gathered all of his commanders to discuss it. Roosevelt later recalled in his autobiography that. Although I had command of a brigade I was only a colonel and so I did not intend to attend. But General informed me that I was particularly wanted and accordingly. I went as Edmund Morris wrote in the rise of Theodore Roosevelt's all agreed that it was critical and that the war department's apparent unwillingness to evacuate. The army was inexcusable. Somebody must write a formal letter stating that. In the unanimous opinion of the Fifth Corps staff further stay in Cuba would be to the absolute object. Lewis ruin of the fighting forces. None of the regular officers wanted to risk his career by writing such a letter and suddenly the reason. Roosevelt's presence had been requested became clear. He was a volunteer. Who had quit his post as assistant secretary of the navy in order to fight and he intended to go right back to being a civilian. After the war he had much less to lose by offending his former boss. President William McKinley McKinley Secretary of war Russell Alger to incur. The hostility of the war department would not make any difference me whereas it would be destructive to the men in the regular Army Roosevelt later wrote. I thought this true and said I would write a letter or make a statement which could then be published Theodore. Roosevelt obviously wasn't afraid to speak up. Theodore. Roosevelt wasn't afraid of anything except inaction as Alfred. Henry Lewis would write a Roosevelt in nineteen ten. Mr Roosevelt has often shown that it is better to do the wrong thing than do nothing at all. The best thing is to do the right thing. The next best is to do the wrong thing. And the worst of all things is to stand perfectly still. We'll be right back in an effort to spur the McKinley administration to Action and bring American troops back to the states before they were decimated by yellow. Fever plan was hatched. Roosevelt would write an initial letter addressed general. Which would then be followed by a round robin letter? A method typically used to conceal the identity of the ringleaders of a movement which would be signed by Roosevelt and the other commanders. Then they would leak those letters to the press in his letter. Roosevelt wrote that to keep us here. In the opinion of every officer commanding a division or brigade will simply involve the destruction of thousands. There is no possible reason for not shipping practically the entire command north at once. All of us are certain that as soon the authorities of Washington fully appreciate the condition of the army. We shall be sent home. Roosevelt noted that in the Cavalry Division. At least there were no true cases of yellow fever but there were fifteen hundred cases of malarial fever. Hardly man has yet died from it he wrote but the whole command is so weakened and shattered as to be ripe for dying like rotten sheep when a real yellow fever epidemic instead of a fake epidemic. Like the present one strikes us as it is bound to do if we stay here at the height of sickness season. August and the beginning of September corentin against the malarial. Fever is much like quarantining against the toothache. If we are kept here it will in all human possibility mean and appalling. Disaster for the surgeons here estimate that over. Half the army of Kerr during the sickly season will die. The men were unable to penetrate into the interior and moving them around the island. Roosevelt said only sick in them. Further to delay sending the men home was not only terrible from the standpoint of the individual lives lost Roosevelt wrote but it means ruined from the standpoint of military efficiency of the flower of the American army for the great bulk of the regulars are here with you. He closed by saying that. I write only because I cannot see our men who have fought so bravely who have endured extreme hardship and danger so uncomplaining Louis Goto destruction without striving so far as lies in me to avert a doom is fearful as it is unnecessary undeserved Roosevelt's fellow commanders. Then signed their letter which noted that they were all in agreement that the army must be moved at once or Perish. Adding as the army can be safely moved to now. The persons responsible for preventing such a move will be responsible for the unnecessary loss of many thousands of lives are. Opinions are the result of careful personal observation and there are also based on the unanimous opinion of our medical officers with the army who understand the situation absolutely. There are different accounts of what happened next. But according to Roosevelt he wrote his letter and an Associated Press reporter tagged along when he went to give it to general shafter who promptly push it into the hands of the reporter. As Roosevelt later recalled. I presented the letter to General shafter. Who waited away and said I don't want to take it. Do whatever you wish with it. I however insisted on handing it to him whereupon he shoved it toward the correspondent of the Associated. Press who took hold of it and I released my hold. Something similar happened with a round robin and when the letters the press they caused a sensation the McKinley administration was incensed by the letters. According history and Louis L Gould. The day after the letters were published. Mckinley wrote a letter to shafter. Denounced th round robin as most unfortunate from every point of view adding the publication of the letter makes the situation one of great difficulty. No soldier reading that report ordered to go to San Diego but will feel that. He is marching to certain death. According to Morris some within the administration even suggested court-martialing Roosevelt for his letter the administration had reason to be rotated on August. Third the day before the round robin hit the press. Algebra Haddish in order for the army to be moved back to the United States which meant that many newspapers printed Roosevelt's letter right next to an announcement that the troops were being brought back to the public. It looked the Roosevelt's letter and the Round Robin had forced the McKinley administration to act which wasn't the case by August seventh. The first troops were heading back to the states to quarantine in Montauk on Long Island New York. Nothing ever came of the suggestion to Court Martial Roosevelt. Instead Secretary Algebra published a private letter in which tier bragged about the rough riders performance. Saying they were as good as any regulars and three times as good as any state troops while Algebra might have hoped that the letter would threaten tears. Chances of getting the governorship of New York. His tactic failed. Roosevelt returned to war hero. He became governor and then vice president and then president. He didn't however get the one thing he desperately wanted the medal of honor. Those simple leave. He was denied the honor because of the publicity stunt he had pulled as Mitchell Yochelson writes for the National Archives pro magazine. There's no evidence for that exactly. Why the BREXIT Board Denied Roosevelt? The award is not officially documented. Yochelson rights certainly. No evidence exists to support the contention. That Algeria held a grudge over the round. Robin Affair or Roosevelt's testimony to the Congressional Committee on the contrary letters from the Word Department to Roosevelt indicate that they were more than willing to assist him in getting the Medal of honor. One can only assume that the BREXIT board came to the conclusion that the Roosevelt contact in Cuba was quite admirable. He was not worthy of a medal of honor later. Roosevelt would write that. I was recommended for it by my superior officers in the campaign but I was not awarded it and frankly looking back at it now. I feel that the board which declined to a word. It took exactly the right position around a century after his experiences in Cuba tier would finally be awarded the Medal of Honor. Back to the present day. We've talked before on this podcast about how it's impossible to know how tr would have reacted to situations today in this case however one of Roosevelt's descendants has a different opinion in a piece for the New York Times to Roosevelt tr. Grandson and chairman of the Theodore Roosevelt Institute at Long Island University wrote about Captain Crozier and the situation on the USS Theodore Roosevelt as a descendant of the namesake of Captain Crozier's former command. I often wonder in situations like this. What Theodore Roosevelt would have done tweet? Roosevelt wrote in this case. Though I know exactly what he would have done in eighteen ninety eight. He found himself in almost the exact same position. In this era when so many seem to place expediency over honor it is heartening that so many others are showing great courage some even risking their lives. Theodore Roosevelt in his time chose the honorable course. Hampton crozier has done the same before we go. I want to say a huge thank you to the medical professionals and the essential workers who are out there risking their lives for us into all of the history versus listeners.

It looks like he's in the in the forest but he's actually a photo studio in New York City. He sent it to people so he is. You know these days we say people do it for the Graham like. He's he was doing it for the Graham before Israel was never thing he had a concept about. Pr AND BRANDING BEFORE PR. Branding were thing and how that could aid you in presidency in Asia and policy and how important that was fascinating. Yeah I mean for all his positive attributes he also had some some not so great ones you know. He had a fair a fair bit of Righteousness. Unfortunately he held some white. Supremacist viewpoints Which is a bummer. Just been grappling with that and making it making the podcast. It's been fascinating to learn about those sides of him as well in a way surprising and tragic because he was this moral righteous person and he was able to foresee things that culturally of the time. Were a step away from others. You know in terms of monopolies and trusts and corruption and so on that he he saw morally what was right so somewhat surprising and sad that he couldn't take his intelligence and moral stance as it were do the right thing in his presidency. There was a huge uptick in violence against African Americans. And you know he was against segregation. He did not believe. In limiting voting rights he spoke out against lynching but politically. He did very little to help anyone. He did forge a relationship with booker. T. Washington actually invited him to have dinner at the White House which caused huge controversy and they had a working relationship but in terms of policy. He didn't do very much to help. That's a sad. That's a bummer. Now he did a lot of good things but not everything but on that side note. I think we'll say goodbye to tr. Well that wraps things up for this episode as huge.

"Roosevelt was the twenty six president of the United States. He was also a Republican leader was progressive era policies and original conservationists and naturalists yet a warrant easiest often ranked as amongst the top five presidents of all time and also admired for his larger than life personality. Tr was a noted colorful figure who truly advanced progressive policy in this country. Welcome to personality. I'm Dr Gail Saltz and joining me. Today is Aaron McCarthy Editor in Chief of mental floss and host of the podcast history versus which just finished its first season all about the Roosevelt. So he thought who better to bring on to discuss tr. It's hard to come up with a a leader President who had a bigger personality historically speaking than Teddy Roosevelt. Very true born in Eighteen fifty-eight a hometown boy. Yes New Yorker we do and we do know. New Yorkers do tend to have big personalities but even amongst New Yorkers Teddy was big so let's talk about his early life. He had a southern Belle. Mom Yes he did and his Father was a republican so that led to some interesting times during the civil war a nation divided and a house divided. He was very into the war playing battling war with his siblings all the time he was the second child with the first son and so as soon as he was born he kind of became the center of the family's world and he was a sick kid. This turns out to be a very important point in terms of his character formation. Which and we know. Today that early chronic illness for child really is very formative particularly in terms of how they deal with it how they develop coping skills and manage to manage it versus how traumatic an impact. It has on their childhood. He had childhood asthma and hadn't pretty severe asthma. E couldn't even like blow out a candle like he was really compromise and that compromise is ability be physically active in the way the boys usually would. Let's talk about Theodore's parents reaction essentially to his asthma. Yeah so I mean they were obviously an affluent family they had means and so he had his first asthma attack at age. Three and it was really bad. I mean asthma can still be fatal today but it was even more so he would sleep sitting up. There are these stories of his father kind of carrying him up and down the hallway trying to get him to breathe they would put him in the carriage and ride him at top speed up and down Broadway trying to force air into his lungs and then they did other things which you know. We look on horror with today. They made him smoke cigars. They made him drink black coffee. You know and never smoked so we for good reason. Yeah Yeah we'll introduce the scars. Childhood would be a good deterrent. I would assume but it must have been even scarier to be doing things that were supposedly supposed to help. They were supposedly the medical treatment of the time and to actually not have them help at all because of course we understand today. They nothing useful any of these things but his father said to him. You have to make yourself. You have to become strong in order to come out this so even as a child that is essentially what Theodore did. It's really funny. His father took him to the Doctor. And the doctor said he's got a week heart and not enough space in his ribcage or something so he really needs to open that up and so his father says to him. You know you have the mind but not the body and without the body of the mind can't go as far as it should so you have to build your body according to career into your sister. Tr said through gritted teeth. I will build my body and then they build this gym for him on the Piazza and he's just out there like lifting weights. The neighborhood looked a lot different back then than it than it does today. But there's a beautiful garden out in the back so he would have been working out and listening to like mooing cows and and peacocks screaming. They make terrible noises and so yeah he worked OUT SOLIDLY FOR TWO YEARS. And then there's another kind of a formative experience for him. He has an asthma attack in his father. Sends him up to Moosehead Lake. Which is I think in Maine and in the coach on the way there he runs into these two boys who are about his age and instead of becoming friends with him. They bully him. They beat him up. He feels so ashamed by that. You know he's like I'm building my body you know. He was writing down his his measurements. All the Reps. He was doing stuff in his diary. Early evidence of some obsessive nece. Let's say For sure yeah that often when someone is fairly obsessional you do see it in childhood. How does he when that incident he was in his early teens? Okay so a very identity forming time and fourteen also a big bullying. I'm yeah as we continue to see today and we know the negative impacts of bullying really sure emotionally driving low self esteem for for the for the target. But that's not what happened to him. No he actually said I made up my mind that I must tried to learn so that I would not again be put in such a helpless position. So then he took up boxing. His coach was a prizefighter. And what they discovered is that he could really take a hit and he would just keep popping backup. Hit him again and he just pop back up so he had a sturdiness. Starting Yeah that he demonstrated about him and even as a boy. Tr shows that you know he has to struggle with this asthma but he's going to build himself and then he gets knocked down but he gets back up interesting that he already at this young age. He's playing war games. And he is overcoming. Actually his asthma. And certain kind of way you could certainly posit the desire to have war or to have fighting as the constructed obstacle which you show your victory in essentially would be very compelling For someone who is already started doing that with his traumas as a young person Yeah and I mean. He actually thought that war was a good thing. You know just a little bit of war kept you in touch with your manliness. And and what? He called these barbarian virtues and he sort of felt like you had to keep fighting to stay on top and so he was really really into war. How do aggressive fighters? Do with those impulses and urges when they also want to be morally right or morally good if they're shaped in a way that maybe their moral compass and you know they might become criminals actually really do do fighting in a way that you know. Obviously we don't approve of society but in his case he's a Roosevelt and raised by a family. That maybe might makes right by. Right is important exactly. I mean his father. They have this glass importing business and his father was very wealthy and was a big believer in philanthropy. So the American Museum of Natural History. His father was a part of founding the Metropolitan Museum of art. His father was a part of founding and then he also supported many many charities including the News Boys Lodging House and he actually take his kids with him to these houses so they could see there was a bit of. I can never pronounce it. Noblesse Obe leauge at work there and so he really believed that it was part of his role as a privileged person to help people who are less privileged than him and his father was a proponent of muscular Christianity which is basically like strong body strong morals and so you know he was constantly sort of drilling right and wrong Into his son I think mostly for better but also tr comes out of that with sort of a very black and white view of what's right and what's wrong and not a lot of gray area. His father took him hunting. Hunting was a big part of his upbringing. It was part of being a sportsman but it was more than that and this goes on to be a very formative time for him. I mean it actually even goes back further than that because he was so sickly as a kid that he didn't spend a ton of time outside what he did was he sat in his house and he read and he read a lot of books about natural history even before he could read he would drag the books alongside him and beg anybody who could read to read them to him. There are these stories of him dragging along David Livingstone's book which was like apparently than he was just dragging it along and begging people to read the book to him which is really cute. But you know so. He had this obsession with nature.

We have to run a nuclear power plants or there are a lot of things that we have to do on that ship and make it a little bit different and unique but we're managing it and we're working through and we're taking all the input and we appreciate all the Info from the CEO the chef medical command on that ship. And we're going to work on those those issues immediately. For residents of the island of Guam Population. About one hundred. Seventy thousand allowing sales to disembark is a big concern in the headlines. The Pacific News Center a major developing situation this morning after the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt pled with Navy leaders to radio station K. G. UM in Guam's capital had gotten Guam's governor. Liu Leon Guerrero announced today that she is working on a plan to quarantine sailors in local hotels. Lola Leon Guerrero is on Guam. She's an activist with the group Independent. Guan which is concerned about the governor's decision Guam is already trying to contain the rapid spread of covert. That's happening on a very tiny island with just a little over one hundred sixty thousand people we already have seventy seven cases on Guam and so bringing in a carrier with five thousand people who have been in such close quarters with each other And Cova rapidly spreading there that the Annan needs to be able to focus on the community here to the governor of Guam. Promise the navy anything. Well the governor of Guam. After the captain of the carrier wrote a letter about how serious the issue was The governor and the admiral started making decisions to house those who are testing negative in local hotels and they have said that they're going to ensure that a local hotel workers don't interact with the people coming off the carrier that they're working on How that's what that's GonNa look like. Do you know if any sailors have disembarked yet. No so the house of what this is GonNa look like a haven't really been made available to the community. A lot of the numbers have not been officially made available to the community in terms of how many people have already tested positive on the carrier. This information is vital. I believe to our community and it's a big difference from they will stay on the carrier or on peace to now we will be housing them in the hotels. How a dilemma is is for the residents of Guam because Captain Brett Crozier. The commander of the Roosevelt is pleading for help. I mean he's saying. Us troops are in a life and death situation. How are people talking about that? You know what the groups have been saying. Is that if we know. For a fact that it's spreading rapidly on the ship and then you remove them from the ship and you bring them into the local community even one new case in the local community because of how small and interconnected this community is could lead to many many more cases and that is problematic Nobody said that we want to turn away the sailors from from health. Care that they need you. Know there are People Guam. Who served in the navy and our on this carrier and we by no means want them to be mistreated or put their lives at risk. No what we're saying is the navy has the resources to handle this within their base. We should also point out that. Many residents of Guam our veterans or active duty Navy. Some are actually aboard the Roosevelt. Right now so how do those ties between Guam and the US military complicate the situation for people on the island we constantly because of you know our relationship with the United States and with the military particularly the people of Guam? Truly not being able to say you know what we need to focus on how we're going to handle the increasing number of cases that we have and there isn't enough information for us to really know what we're expecting here There hasn't been transparency.

"theodore" Discussed on KGO 810
"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. It is may of eighteen seventy seven we are in Cambridge at Harvard college in the rooms for Theodore Roosevelt, eldest son of Theodore Roosevelt scene and visiting that day, the rooms are handsome there well arranged, but this is a man who studies a great deal at Harvard. Visiting that day is father Theodore senior, but his two sisters Bamiyan Coney his cousin Maude and a young woman. He describes as pretty Edith Edith Carrow, whom we know will become Theodore Roosevelt's, second wife after tragedy and reversal and discovery this detail is from a new book. These are the diaries of the young Theodore Roosevelt. A most glorious ride is the title. The is Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven. We begin the spring of eighteen seventy seven to eighteen eighty six when Theodore full blown coz on to a career in Washington. And then as we all know, his accidents the assassination of McKinley in one thousand nine hundred one and Theodore Roosevelt's ascendance to the presidency a presidency that dominated the beginning of the twentieth century and set the theme for America as an energetic. Manley extremely aggressive power. In the first part of the twentieth century. I welcome the editor of these diaries for the first time. I learned all together in one book Edward P, cone, Ted cone, Ted a very good evening to you. Thank you for this. Let's go into Theodore's room may ten Thursday at Harvard wise father visiting and who is pretty Edith to Theodore good evening. Good evening, John. Thanks for having me. Yes. Roosevelt. This is his freshman year, and he had a fairly solitary freshman year as a New Yorker, he didn't quite fit in with the son of the Boston Brahmin elite. And you know, that that first year a lot of his time is spent collecting specimens because he is this amateur natural scientists hoping to have a career and this, and this is, you know, near the end of the school year. This is a very important visit by a good chunk of his family, including his father, his brother has two sisters. And of course, of course, his childhood friend and eventually adolescent love interest Edith caro-. I mean it actually when he went off to Harvard. I think both families expected that pretty Edith Theodore would one day be married. This visit is the beginning of these diaries. Why do we not have seventy six seventy five seventy four when he was younger he traveled widely with his family. I think there were two grand European tours one that carried them all the way to Cairo was he keeping notes then in or did it not come to him. Now, there are the diaries of his childhood and youth those republish not long after his dad, and so those especially as you say chronicle, those tour ran tours of Europe that included the Middle East, included, Constantinople and included. A lengthy stay in Dresden where you learn to love all things German. And so on the one hand, you know, the Roosevelt papers are full of lots of different kinds of journals and diaries all the way up to win. He used a kernel of the rough riders in Cuba. But at the same time, he's also rather a sporadic diarist as well, even in this collection in this one volume collection of these diaries. There isn't a diary say for the year eighteen eighty five and then some of the years only how perhaps handful of entry. Trees as this is something that he kind of stop and start. And I think we're kind of lucky that we have almost as entire time at Harvard in the diaries. Yes. The summer of seventy eight hundred seventy seven this is a period where he is exploring the idea began naturalists, he's talked about it with his father is father is the critical figure Theodore Roosevelt, both young man and mature man, and the his seniority he thinks about his father a deal because of the tragedy that is imminent. However, the naturalism the pursuit of skinning every bird shooting birds and shooting animals, what does that mean to Theodore, and what is his father make of it? Roosevelt really wants to be a scientist. I don't pick necessarily motivated out of a real love of science. I think it's part of one. Is his entire life. Has this love of the outdoors. His father councils heaven says well less we are rich enough. You can do whatever you want. But you can't be a dilettante you have to pursue this as a serious study in a serious career. And by the way, you're not going to be able to enjoy the kind of luxuries that perhaps you enjoy now. So heroes about senior gives the go-ahead gives the green light. But with some fairly serious caveats, his father, still a young, man. He's forty five forty six years old. He's a banker, and I believe the Roosevelt's have been bankers for most of the eighteenth century from the most of the nineteenth century from the eighteenth century. Does the young Theodore value, the Bank, the bankers life, and he doesn't, and frankly, I don't even think Theodore Roosevelt senior really does. I mean. They they have their fingers in everything in New York in Manhattan real estate in imports in buying treasury bonds, really this comes from the grandfather. Cornelius van shock Roosevelt who funerals all senior is a partner in into the huge firm Roosevelt and son. The feeder Roosevelt senior we don't really remember him as a great pioneer of commerce in New York. We remember him for his philanthropy for being one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum of art. Or the Sounders of the American Museum of natural history of being the organizer of the news, boys lodging house of an orthopedic hospital. So I think this is something that Theodore Roosevelt junior directly inherits from his father, the sense of social responsibility and a sense of Noblesse. Oh believes that you know. Great power and wealth in your community means that you have much greater responsibility as well a detail here from before these diaries begin Theodore Roosevelt's senior the man whom Theodore Roosevelt adored warship, his father became caught up in the Republican politics in the middle of the eighteen seventies. This has to do with the civil war and the grant administration and corruption and the occupation of the army, the occupation of the south and the controversial election of the governor of Ohio Hayes in eighteen seventy six though, it looked like Sam Tilden at one what had had been victorious because the Republican party controlled the electoral college in several southern states that were really not organized to vote fairly a Hayes was put into office promising for one term. But at this point Theodore Roosevelt, senior had gotten caught up in the corruption of the collection of the collector of New York, Chester Arthur that. At did. That did see Roosevelt senior take that to the dinner table talk about the controversy and the upset of that period. I think this was a very formative experience for the son Theodore Roosevelt junior. Not only was this a subject of conversation. It grew in other close members of the Roosevelt family circle in New York City, and it was full in the newspapers, that's theater, New York. Newspapers of Theodore Roosevelt, made sure he has subscriptions to while at Harvard all is becoming a kind of an anti machine. Independent republican. This is a dominant and extremely aristocratic New York family. Everything is perfectly arranged. These are professionals thinking about civic affairs in the eighteen seventies. This is a critical period also for America because it's building what we now. Call the gilded age, but it was being put together piecemeal the powers, the authorities the great families that would be. Well, to do into the twentieth century was still organizing their combines the Rockefellers and the Westinghouse's, and of course, the Pullman and all of the railroads, but then darkness comes in to Theodore Roosevelt's live. We have this note. He's nineteen years old now he's at Harvard. He's at Cambridge and Friday, December twenty first suddenly, call to New York. Dear father, very sick. Do they have any warning about this Ted? I wasn't aware because he was away at harbor, but the family had known for a few weeks that heroes senior was in quite a bit of stomach pain. But it's only later when Roosevelt is called back to New York that he understands how sick his father has been. So this isn't December is right before Christmas and over Christmas over the Christmas holiday, and he's back home and away from Harvard. It seems like the father has revived. And so Theodore Roosevelt, junior happily goes back to Harvard. Eighteen seventy eight and those early eighteen seventy eight entries in January a very happy. You know, undergraduate Harvard very different from the year before much more social of women mentioned in his diaries, unknown to Theodore Roosevelt, his father is dying of a painful tumor of the stomach. The book is a most glorious ride. The diaries of Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven to eight hundred eighty six when we come back, his father dies and Theodore Roosevelt, must rearrange his thinking about the rest of his life. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Balance of nature.
