"Conclusion three. The effectiveness of leadership is inversely related the degree of inertia intensification caused by leadership. Leadership is added incense the capacity to get ten or one, hundred thousand or a million people to something to act in a particular way to move in a specific direction. The product of leadership is action. Choosing the action and Effects Rating. The motion is leadership. There are many approaches to leading, but here I am limiting our discussion to four primary strategies. Leadership by example, the leader actively what needs done with the expectation, others will follow suit. A leader leads by example whether he intends to or not. The notion is those who follow will tend to go where you go. Do what you do, example. Thus an element of all leadership using leadership by example as your primary strategy goes beyond this. Em Kelly gets such the bigger idea. Remember the difference between a boss and a leader Abo- says gone. A later says let's go if we add and show you how we capture the essential leadership concept leading by example. Leadership by delegation leader defines and assigned tasks activities. This strategy was captured by Theodore Roosevelt when he the best executive is the one who sent soon after pick good men to do what you want done I'm self I strange enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it. The key phrases here are. Do you want dumb and keep from meddling to delegate is to assign activities and responsibilities with the expectation. They will be completed. It is the mostly hands off approach used with competent follows. Wipes D Eisenhower also champion delegation not to suggest it as a strategy reserved only for presidents leadership, the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it. Think of delegations define assign, and then confined your responsibility to decide to encouragement you delegate and then step away. Leadership by impairment, the leader defines the expected that come. Empowerment is a simple strategy the leader so clearly and persuasively funded outcome. It becomes an end on itself compelling consuming lattes in caught the essence when Siam between people behind them. The people are empowered heading on mass to the outcome. Ralph Nader expanded and elaborated leaders, the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy get. The leader implores that outcome matters. It has to be realized you can do. Go forth and succeed. Leadership by consensus, the group defines what to do, and what will be accomplished. This is an on leadership leadership strategy of sorts. The leadership enables and facilitates the follows define align and proceed alexsandr general line gets the strategy Whimsey, saying Viggo my people I must find out where they are going so I can lead them. To, successfully lead by consensus may be the most difficult and challenging the strategies. It takes a special knack not to intrude into the follows decision, process or introduced own opinions, bias is or point of view. Paraphrasing from would've been the way of life according to lots, you're a leader is best when people barely know that he exists here, the leader is an ever present, but mostly island thought..

"The courageous men and women of law enforcement. What's objectionable, They're free and open debate.

They don't want to hear anything. That's not a complete parroting of what they're saying. So maybe that's what they're talking about. Or maybe it's the fact that you know he supports law enforcement and police officers because No, there aren't law enforcement supposed to be the new anti Christ Essentially that we have to do fund them.

And I knew where she was coming from immediately. Um, we're going to talk about Mount Rushmore just for a second. Okay? And the President's that were there. What I implore every American to do is stop George Washington's farewell address. This is just like it's just like 10th grade reading. It's not Complex. Where he Predicted. He predicted where we are today. With two opposing parties out to destroy each other in all of this, it's amazing, okay. George Washington was one of the first Americans. To free slaves, not slaves that he owned slaves that he inherited by law. We do not eat it on his wife's step, Okay? These people. Worked against whatever it corporate slavery World global slavery was going on at the time. Our American founders worked against that Theodore Roosevelt. He worked. He didn't say you have to throw away a culture. He just said, you have to be an American U have to support the Constitution. You have to come here and learn our culture. Abe Lincoln. These are the people. The lack of knowledge.

That's what it wass and whatever this thing that's going on is another scheme and everybody knows it. Well, here's hoping they remember it in November. Donna, I think I think Marie's passion Says they're not saying it. Because they're afraid to say Because they have being in the same manner. That I sadly that fascism harmed.

His brother was the one who introduced the rank choice of voting. He is the one who the DOJ had to chastise, send ballots out to our military Massachusetts because he knew they would vote Republican and they never got their ballots in time, and he was Chastised because he violated the law.

Fresh update on "theodore roosevelt" discussed on Slate's The Gist
"It's Monday July six twenty twenty from at the gist. I might ask. Donald trump gave a pair of speeches over the July fourth holiday, and maybe you saw them or heard coverage of them, maybe actually took them in in whole or part, a firecracker fury right to the. I listened to the speeches. Read the transcript, my job people i. do it for you. And there was the usual lies, bluster the inaccuracies, the stupid ideas that hinge on a small but physically tangible gesture in the face of a massive complex, sometimes conceptual problem. Let me give you. Two examples from the past immigration was the problem that has economic cultural political humanitarian complexities, Solution Wall Wall Solution I could see a wall while work or Cova. That's a problem extremely hard to get your mind around what it even means. Solution ships very large ships. Maybe their names can be the comfort in the mercy. Comfort, but they are tangible, and we could see them steaming out of harbor. So the problem of criminal justice rears its head, and the people's anger occasionally takes the form of toppling monuments traders to Enslavers, but and also and to pass American leaders. But. Trump has a simple solution a tangible solution it is garden. Garden of statues have no idea of his garden will ever flourish. If he's defeated in hundred nineteen days, I would guess it won't, but he says it will, and he also says it will be done democratically. Those great names are going to be up there and they're never coming down. They have just been an incredible group and we are going to. Do this in a very democratic way. Frankly know he's sincere. Because of the last word, he just used in that clip. Frankly sometimes he says frankly, and he means it like in Tulsa, when he talked about this one very prominent challenge to all of us, the American people and I looked down on my talk because I've done it. I've taken water. And spills down by this is look good for a long time, and frankly the is never the same so there there is an instance of trump's using the word frankly, and it should be taken at face value of course. When frankly is used to describe him. In a democratic fashion. Become a little more suspicious. But there was another word play. It was actually in the very clip that I played from the July fourth speech that I think defined the pair of speeches that he gave over the weekend. He said it in the Black Hills George Washington. He will never be removed. Abolished. And most of all he will never be forgot. And he said it also of Jefferson. and He. Will never ever be abandoned by US and Linkin and of the fourth figure glaring behind him. The American people will never relinquished the bold beautiful and untamed spirit of Theodore Roosevelt never. These speeches are what I think of as the never speeches promising to defend to never allow that, which is already being allowed to never succumb to what's already in existence, trump is now running a never campaign in those two speeches, trump said never promise to never allow or never forget twenty eight times. The producers put together this abbreviated cut. This monument will never be desecrated. Never be defense. Their legacy will never ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten. We will never abolish our police or our great second amendment, which gives us the right to keep and bear arms. We will never let them rip America's heroes. From our monuments, or from our hearts, and we will never surrender the spirit and the courage, and the cause of July fourth seventeen, seventy six. Americans must never lose sight. Of this miraculous story should never lose sight of. Because we will never forget that the American freedom exists for American. Great this and that's what we have American greatness. We will never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues arrays, our history indoctrinate our children or trample. On our freedoms. And we never back down. We never give in, and we never give up, and we will never yield defense of our nation Donald Trump's grasp on the country, and the presidency is slipping away. He's reduced to fighting against change promising not to make anyone's life better or to achieve any the same person would say is a vision of America. All the can promise, and not even do was to fight to hold onto that. Is Own mismanagement. Incompetence has shaken loose. I've a feeling that a lot of Americans have their own never as relates to voting for trump. Never again. On the show today we brainstorm a new name for the Washington Football Squadron and man's baked goods play a role, but I last week the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. Nicole Hannah, Jones wrote an essay about what is owed to American black citizens. She cited Ju- Professor William Garrity his plan for reparations. It's detailed in his new book from here to equality reparations for black Americans in the. The twenty first century, now it honey Jones wrote about this was reparations or not, about punishing white Americans and white Americans are not the ones who would pay for them. She says quote it is the Federal Government that pays I didn't quite understand how this would work. So I read the book and got in touch with the professor and present without too much editorials atieno little. Our conversation right now. What's going to say about you listen to podcasts, don't you? Yes, I. Know that about you so many podcasts that you always wanted to listen to our on luminary. My personal favorite lyonnnais facts fiasco is the original host of slow-burn takes his magic to fiasco on luminary. App I actually downloaded the luminary. APP Works Very well tells me quite efficiently. When all the podcasts already not just luminary only podcast all the podcasts in the world. One new podcast that luminary is doing this year is called murder on the towpath. It is a true crime. Miniseries is hosted by Soledad O'Brien it's about the nineteen sixty four murder of Mary pincher Meyer. Georgetown it was one of the trial of the centuries, and it became something of a time capsule of all the racial tension scandal distrust of the nineteen sixties. It is an unresolved case. Listen to murder on the towpath. Only on luminary go to luminary dot link, slash towpath and get a seven day free trial of luminaries original podcasts. That's luminary dot link slash towpath. Cancel anytime terms apply. The discussion over reparations for the legacy of slavery and more recent racist policies like Jim Crow and red lining that discussion is gaining new cultural currency, leading the way with a plan to address.

How did America get to its current state?
"The scenes across the US in the past week or so, they have been profoundly disturbing heavenly. The protests are in response to the horrifying image of George. Floyd an African American man and Minneapolis. Police officer who killed him by kneeling on his nick for close to nine minutes to spot. He's pleased that he could not brave. Those demonstrations as we all know turned into, want him violence and destruction, not only in the twin cities, but all across American CDs. Today's are quiet and peaceful, but it's really the evenings in the night, so usually bring that fury. Those frustrations attend to boil over in the results or these fiery clashes that we've seen across the country, and of course here in New York. We've already seen dozens of people injured. Hundreds of people arrested in tonight. The expectation is that we could see more of these demonstrations. How did America get to this point? And who precisely are Antioch, the militant left wing political protest movement that part of these rights. Face because Nazis, thank. and. That is a very bad thing because harass people Lemay Organiz they kill. People hurt people. They fight people. And we're the ones who fighting back there. The second coming of Hitler for several decades America has I deeply divided nation. Just go back to the mid to late nineteen sixties when America experienced those long hot summers, protests and riots, Vietnam Rice and Martin. Luther King's assassination. The American people are deeply disturbed. They're baffled and dismayed by the wholesale looting and violence. That has occurred both in small towns and then great metropolitan centres. No society can tolerate massive violence. Anymore than a body can tolerate massive disease to me that black people are in the streets. Has Do the lives air force lead in this country? And unfortunately lead these lives by the indifference and the apathy. And a certain kind of ignorance, willful ignorance on the part of their citizens. According to British historian Max Hastings Pass guest on this show in those days quote. It seemed that rice the election and the Vietnam. War would tearing asunder the greatest country on earth. And to think is deep divisions in America have clearly grown since the sixties especially in the trump era, just think of that toxic polarization, hyper partisanship in Washington and elsewhere not to mention the crisis engulfing American cities. So. How did America get to this point? Robert DALIC is arguably America's most distinguished living presidential historian. He's author of fourteen books including on Presidents FDR JFK, LBJ, Richard, Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. The latest book is called. How did we get? He from Theodore Roosevelt? To Donald Trump it's published by harpercollins. Robert Delic joins me from Washington DC hi Bob. Hi Tom Lovely to hear from you. Great to have you on the show now they adopt is in Washington and across other use CDs, but America as I mentioned, before has experienced similar protests in violence. What do you think distinguishes this crosses? The widespread unrest in nineteen sixty I'd. Well, Tom. One of the things that distinguish did was the fact that Lyndon Johnson of course was. President then, and was presiding over the Vietnam War, which was at the center of what? Disturbed so many people in the United States and triggered so many of these. Demonstrations but Johnson had the good sense. To? Give up running for president. He was very skillful politician. Now we have a president who will not give up who would not resign and the only way we're going to get him out of office is by feeding him in the election. Night comes up and five months from now it's very disquieting situation and the demonstrations across this country. I believe on not. Simply a response to the tragic killing of that black man in Minneapolis, but it's also a protest against Donald Trump's presidency. You Know Tom. He's never reached fifty percent approval. And the going on for years he's been office. And this is unprecedented. No President in terms since we've had polling in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Has Gone through a whole first term without ever reaching fifty percent approval.

"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.

S. she says NASA should be snug but breathable high thread count fabrics work best you don't have to know how to sell just know how to follow instructions Wynn has been extremely busy sales are up about thirty percent with the majority of customers buying supplies to sell masks at home when says it was a customer from China who first warned her about the corona virus months ago and told her to stock up with it Hong Kong everybody's running out mask they can't even find it so it's going to come here it will come here so you need to start now did you hear that one months ago she was told from her friend in China or Hong Kong they ran out of masks and she said it will come here it will come to you that is chilling yeah and I just that's what I kept telling you about we knew about this the poll monologist I mentioned to you why right back in December back in January he serves are like the first week of January yeah he said this thing is in China I think it's gonna be a big deal I think this could be like a you know okay sars right yeah that's exactly what he said well and and then of course the White House was told about it and and completely I mean read the intelligence committee knew about it then you know that that of congressional members of Congress were were briefed and they actually made stock trades based on it you know we we know now we know a lot right yeah gosh and and for almost two months denying that it's a bad thing it is my I mean look at these yeah I mean in late mid March you are still hearing you were hearing this how the Democrats are politicizing the corona virus you know that and this is the new hoax I mean you know then the lead the rest of that is that he can make changes to in a few weeks later but I mean really to think about that so you're talking about but it was a long time ago right we could have been looking for ventilators and looking for mass and other personal protective equipment a long time ago back in January the failure of the fads on this extends beyond the trump administration because it's very hard to Marshall monies and interest in something that isn't a clear and present danger at the moment were myopic that way right oh sure okay so you know how you can you know again get to various allocations of funds for this global pandemic we talk about Bill Gates and the fact that he you know he's been banging the drum about a pandemic for years now Iraqi met with Donald Trump every is a Ted talk that goes back to twenty fifteen in which he talks about it it sounds like it's Yuri you know Brett never talk about this last week it's Yuri how he sounds like he's virtually talking about the very thing that we're dealing with now exactly and then you heard comments from president George W. bush back in two thousand five talking about the need to prepare for a possible pandemic back when terrorism was on the front line right at it everybody scratching their head listening to the president at that time wondering what the heck you're are you missing the big shiny object here we're we're fighting terrorism not a pandemic right right but he was able to get you know get some funding to get a national preparedness campaign and then the story the California back in two thousand six Arnold Schwarzenegger started that preparedness campaign against any possible pandemic in the future and lawmakers abandoned that million dollar emergency preparedness efforts I mean again because there and and that's not even that wasn't really that expensive even when you think about it but again because it's hard to justify its like a lot of infrastructure projects you know just hard to you don't in elections on that kind of thing because people don't really feel that if you know you don't want elections on on on the long term transportation goals and you don't win a popular support for monies and preparations associate with pandemics such so that's what you're up against so it wasn't just the trump administration I think the sin of the trump administration is worse than other administrations because there it was actually going on and they were ringing the alarm bells at the White House in the intelligence committee and they couldn't get anybody to pay attention and then what's worse they played it off like it was a democratic hoax as you saw so that I think is even more egregious and awful but but the original sin of ignoring the pandemic doesn't just start with this administration by the way I should just mention I didn't we've got a big swamp sweet and it's not all trump some of it and it's related to covert nineteen is about the opportunism associated with this thing people are rushing and I'm talking about political people just the way those senators made those stock trades knowing there's an element of that involving masks and P.

"Get to Kettle Hill. And he's waiting for orders waiting for orders just like chomping at the bit and then when the orders finally come he like throws himself on horseback which is so reckless and just charges up the hill Firing and he actually Kills a man and it's you know it's just like a wild wildly reckless thing that he does in the things that motivated him he. He definitely did acted many risky things. The first of many many whiskey things where you would say. Wow I you know. When he was in the Dakota territory's he was like of a deputy sheriff or something and and he came home from hunting one day to discover that these bandits had stolen his boat And it was the only boat on the little Missouri River. You know he was like I'm going after these dangerous bandits like he said to his ranch hands. Build me another boat which you know if if someone build you another bone. He's got the boat. Why do you need to go out your boat but it was? It was like a moral thing for him so they go in. They capture these guys who are very dangerous guys. And then he walks them overland like many many miles to justice. Which is it was I mean. And it's the badlands like and they are bad they're tough and he just was like nope morally. I'm doing this thing but it's such a silly risk. Being moral is really was the beginning of his career right and he really made it essentially politically by going after the police and mob boss guys and trying to remove people who are accepting graft and and doing things that were you know the way things worked a lot of the way things work but underground criminality and Which made him Not Well liked amongst a lot of people. Reform is the thing. It's the through line through his whole political career. Everything else he did and he did a ton of other things but like reform was was the biggest thing that he championed and so from his early early days in assemblyman like the first forty eight hours. He introduced four reform bills or something like that. You know through his time as police commissioner when he was following the letter of the law. And you know firing police chiefs who were enabling prostitution and You know Enforcing The Sunday excise law which made him very unpopular with many immigrants. You know and then he achieves a like a national political standing after the charge up Kettle Hill. You know he becomes this national figure and so the Republican Party says let's make him governor of New York and why they ever thought that he would be more controllable as governor of New York than he had been previously. I have no idea why but so he was in there for a little bit and then they were like we need to get this guy out of here. So let's kick him upstairs make vice president. He won't his political career will die there because you know the vice president of your head was just a figurehead position at that time And then McKinley is assassinated. He becomes president.

"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.

The US has carried out hundreds of air strikes in Somalia. The target the militant group al-shabaab. There was one incident in an airstrike two years ago where the. Us admitted to killing civilians so called collateral damage but Amnesty International now says it has evidence of two more airstrikes this year. Also killed civilians. Daphne Eviatar is Amnesty International's director of security with human rights. So those two other airstrikes happened. Back in February Daphne. According to your research what happened was a target and how many civilians were caught up in it so first of all. It's hard to know who the target was. Because africom won't say who the target was but we can tell you who was killed on. February second the family of five or having dinner in the city of Khalib in Somalia's Middle Juba region and a warhead struck their home and then eighteen year old woman. Omar Abu car was killed instantly vic strike also injured two of her younger sisters and their grandmother. Now we don't know who the target of that was the second strike that we documented was February. Twenty four th and that held a fifty three year old man who is a banana farmer and an office manager for the local telecom company. He had a wife and eight children. What's odd in that case in particular is that he had worked previously for international humanitarian organizations in the region and he'd been arrested several times by al-shabaab which makes it really unlikely that he was actually a member of al-shabaab. So the problem is that they don't identify who the targets are except for al-shabaab or affiliates. Shebab and then they declare everyone who has been killed as having been a member of Al Shabaab and so our researchers have gone in and interviewed people on the ground and found out who was the person killed and sometimes it is the member al-shabaab sometimes it wasn't we've investigated eight strikes over the last couple of years and found twenty. One civilians killed the. Us government has only acknowledged two of them. So have you. Amnesty International presented those findings to the Pentagon. What's been the reaction? Yes repeatedly so this is I think the third we're presenting them. Evidence of very specific civilians were killed by. Us strikes the reaction is generally will investigate. And get back to you and then when they have gotten back to us. It's basically a blanket responsive. We've determined that those were members of all Shebab those religions admit killings. But there's no evidence presented to back that up and there's no response to the fact that we have done all these interviews that just gets dismissed. Is there any way for families in Somalia to get reparations or even just an acknowledgement from the US military? That someone was killed. Well there could be but there hasn't been so that's another real concern. We have even in the one case and the one strike which resulted in two civilian casualties that the US government has admitted to. They have not even contacted the family. They have not provided any sort of reparations AFRICOM the US Africa Command has pledged to begin publicly reporting civilian casualties from The military operations in Somalia and elsewhere in Africa by the end of this month. What is your reaction to this? Is it enough? It's a good start other. Us military commands do report. This and so it's good. That AFRICOM will start reporting but the real problem is what are they going to report if they're doing shoddy investigations or investigation that rely purely on secret intelligence sources. That haven't been verified. The most reports won't be very helpful. What they really need to do is meaningful investigations the.

A young woman who was the first reported corona virus case in Kenya says she's recovered by Kenya's official statistics. Fewer than one hundred people have contracted the disease. They're only one person has died. Still countries across Africa are taking drastic action to prevent the spread of cove in nineteen. The World Health Organization is calling countries to protect the poorest communities. But in a place like Kenya some worry that government policies are causing more harm than the pandemic itself. The world's Halima condie reports on a typical day residents in the Nairobi neighbourhood of Kariobangi. Wake up before dawn. It's a low income area meaning. Most homes don't have running water and families often share a single room after getting their children. Ready for school board crowded buses to go to work and other parts of the city. But these days many people don't have jobs to go to being laid off some going for without pay sum deducted deducted pay says Stefanos Hanno. He's a human rights defender at the Kariobangi Social Justice Center. He's been going door to door to educate his community about how to protect themselves from Corona virus but Odierno says their biggest concern is about losing their jobs and putting food on the table. Most people in the neighborhood are casual day. Laborers like food vendors or security guards. These are the people being hurt. I in the corona virus outbreak so far the government has imposed a countrywide curfew. And unfortunately for those who still have jobs.

"It. People and there is no sanitation. There's no soap and there is no water so when I was speaking to them about social tensing it felt like an obscene statement to make when there is so much poverty and people do not have even their basic meals. In fact I met this migrant laborer. Who worked in a little factory? His daily worker and there are eight people in the family and it's been two days since he hasn't gone to work and he does not know what the next day works for him. His wife is on dialysis and he cannot decode hospital because the hospitals are preoccupied occupied with them go with foster to patients. So I mean it's it's it's really miserable sight to witness because these up people unlike the privileged like the middle class of the country. Who have stopped did refrigerators. With Fudan and sanitizers. These people do not know where their next meal is going to come from and some of the neighbors that I met divet crying and they were choking and they said all we want to do is just to go back to our respective hometowns and if anybody can just you know. Put us in a train or a bus. We just want to see our families. Let's hear that Clip Gothic Margaret Bust. I think just the sound of his voice captures the dilemma. He finds himself in what? What was he saying? It was a sobering moment because he said all he wants to do is just go back home. If the government can really help him go back home. He was stalling when I met him and simulcast would packets to give them and they said well. You have given us food packets right now. But what do we do about our next meal? It was? It was really traumatizing to witness data and this is not just you know despite locality at this point of time as I talked about thousands and thousands of laborers who are desperate to go back on because there is no work in the cities. The Prime Minister of the country has initiated these relief funds. But I don't know when. Will that really reach these people because as it stands right now the relief is not reaching them. The only leave that is reaching dam is from NGOs and Volunteers who are working on the ground. So these day laborers are hoping they can pull resources with families and villages So basically they can eat but the families and villages are also under the lockdown so realistically if these workers in the cities make it to the villages. What can they actually expect? Honestly when I spoke to Dan district they just wanted to be with their families. If the DI- did not want to be alone because right now grants they are to this no shortens that. They're going to get their next meal the next day and they're locked down. There are ten labours lockdown in one room. I mean it really seems like a brutal way to treat the poor and vulnerable. What kind of pushback is the government getting? All channels are news. Media's visuals of these farmers and laborers who have been working so of course the countries angry but you know this. Entire incident sheds light on the clear divide between the rich and the poor. The rich and the elite in this country read a week ago standing in their balconies and clapping and cheering for health workers. Which is a great thing. So there's a clear clear. Structural divide between the rich and the poor and the rich and the middle class has been dead but the floor is on the streets and they're crying and they're sticking accountability.

Look for the helpers as Mr Rogers used to say getting through this corona virus pandemic is going to take lots of different helpers. Nurses doctors teachers parents ad delivery workers to the list especially in South Korea. Kelly Casula is based in Seoul and place. The local sometimes referred to as delivery nation. I moved to South Korea a few years ago from the US and one thing that's been really easy to get used to is the convenience. Here's what I'm talking about. I was laying in bed a few nights ago when I realized I forgot to buy a special kind of battery for my camera. I panicked a little because I needed it the next morning for work. But then I remembered South Koreans call their country pay down a Nada or delivery nation. For reason I ordered the battery online that same night. The website promised to it gets me time and sure enough. The next morning at seven am so I just got a text message saying that my packages arrived to my door. So I'm about to go grab them. But here's the real kicker. The battery cost me around ten dollars and delivery was three. I feel like a kid opening Christmas presents right now. I slept the battery in my backpack and head out for the day. So it's early morning here and I'm just leaving my apartment to go to work and of course there's one of these delivery trucks in front of my house. The delivery guy must be running upstairs and giving people their packages as I walked to my bus up to other delivery services. Pass me along the way south. Koreans jokingly call themselves deliverymen Joel Min joke means a group of people sort of like an ethnicity or a race but during the krona virus outbreak. The National Obsession with delivery has kicked into overdrive. Udaya Jen twenty five year. Old University student tells me that she does most of her shopping online but nowadays she says y'all go botany because of Corona. I've heard so many more people are getting things online and having them delivered but convenience also comes with a dark side earlier this month. A delivery man working for a big online retailer here died at work. Another delivery guy found his body at two. Am lying in the stairwells. An apartment building with no elevator news media only identified the man as Mr Kim. The incident got a lot of attention. Home is the head of the Labor Union for Delivery Workers Haas as the official reason for Kim's death was listed as heart failure. But that's not what he thinks really killed him. They've done coup all hanging on to. Kim died from being overworked from pressure. That comes with the job. Korean delivery workers are tracked by a GPS SYSTEM. And they're rewarded for speed. That's how management. I noticed something was wrong with the worker who died of hunger. Could it'll pick it. Do you get home in their house. Says he wants employers to stop promising. Don deliveries altogether and the ease up on the pace a year ago. He says he was delivering to about eighty homes per day. Now it's as high as one hundred eighty now. I can't help but to feel guilty every time I open a package but then again south. Koreans aren't the only ones addicted to home deliveries Andrew. Kim is a sociologist at Korea University. All horrible things online. You know like the state is Amazon. Kim tells me in the South Koreans have gone all in quick home deliveries.

"The winter than in the summer. So for instance. Flu has very strong seasonal forcing go much more likely that flu transmission occurring in the winter than you are in the summer months so this study has been interpreted as suggesting that that could be seasonals. Covet however I think that we still need to get more days today. Hot and humid countries seem to have and I should say seem to have had fewer cases of covered nineteen Would you agree with that? And if you do wise at the situation I think we have to consider a number of other factors. That could explain that. For instance one of the introductions sample sample is not only a Hong Eun country place which has excellent public health excellent content tracing and some very will class at Zang's true of Hong Kong. If you look to other places around that region like Indonesia Indonesia was famously darned starting testing and so they may have been a lot of community spread that we just haven't detected but we are seeing with. Kobe is when it enters the community in some places cakes off the jump breaks quite quickly wake in Iran in others. It doesn't that doesn't mean that it's going to happen right now. For instance we can see that. That's probably very good evidence so coded transmission taking place in Florida. So where do you find the strong evidence that Corona virus does behave like the flu virus in that it is seasonal and could lead up over summer months in North America and Europe? So the study talking about it in the moment is probably the strongest evidence that is. I say has another confounding issues to deal with the Isis. Saying transmission is not happening. It could be. The transmission was just not observed. My colleague mercy. Santana has done a study which was looking at the initial epidemic in different parts of China because China's quite China has a number of different climactic conditions different positive so up north. It's kind of coal and Norgren Humid where South Walnut Creek Humid. So if you were able to see seasonable for senior expect to be more transmission happening unless happening down south but when he looked at the early stages of the epidemic he found such a fact have any previous viruses like SARS or merged shown a seasonal pattern or behaved any differently and warm and humid climates. The issue was saws off. That is often misunderstood. Is that people say that way because of the wall and human violence and the change in seasons but actually what happened results was the majority of transmission happened. Africa symptoms so social distancing. People who you know have called for Just staying home had an outsize effect on transmission that does not get a case with code coded increasing evidence. Kobe transmits a full symptoms become apparent and has resulted. That is much much control now when the flu goes away in the summer. It's not just as a seasonal fall saying it's not just because it finds it. Harder to transmit seasonal flu has been done around will with a building community in the community which means tries to transplant. It's more likely to find that resonates transmitting to is immune. So the downtown scene. Flu is due to seasonal plus immunity is. Kobe is a new virus. There is no immunity. I'm wondering professor manage if you feel a little bit uncomfortable. Even drawing the comparison to the flu given that this parallels have largely been dismissed at this point I actually rocker. We've lost people saying this is flew flew. Snood not new. It's it's wrong rolling comparison. It's wrong to say Ho flu. Kills only so many people year and this is killed. Fuelling acts the same key missing. Is that whenever you say that? Have not being not many deaths. It's the so far at the end of that. Have Not Lodge outbreaks with these places yet? This is still very early stages and we're GONNA learn a lot more than a lot of it is gonNA learn considerable costs. What evidence would you need to conclude that the corona virus is affected by temperature and does follow that seasonal forcing dynamic? You were talking about. We would need evidence that would show that the rate of transmission uninterrupted by other things was slower in the summer. And it wasn't a windsor now. Of course it's going to be together because we are going to be seeing a whole lot of Alba countermeasures which can be put in place and rightly so in spreading now. I hope that that is going to drive three number down. But it's going to be very difficult to know whether or not asked countermeasures. Physical Distance Enroll doing the reason.

Johnson Sirleaf knows what it's like to face a deadly virus outbreak. She was president of Liberia during her nations battle with the Ebola virus. Nearly five thousand people died there between two thousand fourteen and twenty sixteen and infectious disease. Respect snowboarder in discriminates against no one. I argued that an uncontrolled containment will matter where in the world and no matter. How localize is a threat to all humanity as a Bolo was spreading across Liberia? And it's west. African neighbours Sirleaf made pleas for global unity to avert a pandemic. She wrote what she called a letter to the world and the world responded and they did so boldly we defeated together. Liberia was declared Ebola. Free in June of two thousand sixteen with the Corona virus spreading across the globe. Sirleaf is now making a similar play. We must act to slow down. Break the chain of transmission. It is clear that mistakes have been made in the initial response to the virus from Asia to Europe to the Americas. We made the same mistakes in twenty fourteen but we self correct and we did it all together. We are all in this together advice that helped Liberia during Bola and applicable to the whole world. Now that was former Liberian President Ellen. Johnson Sirleaf speaking with my colleagues at the BBC. You're listening to the world. I'm Marco Werman. You're with the world ninety three years. That's how long the man dubbed the Godfather of natural history has been on this earth. I'm talking about broadcaster. Sir David Attenborough. What I WANNA do is going to look at Odds Fox and pangolins and sloths and humming birds. What an assignment. What if I'm tastic through an didn't matter how badly you did it and we we but but people who said ooh Look Hummingbird ooh look? That's Bangla. That's attenborough on the podcast. The Economist asks a podcast in Partnership With Economist magazine and MC L. Voice a host for this week's episode. She sat down with Sir David Attenborough. So attenborough's ninety three. He's still going strong. Even has a new film coming out a life on our planet that thirst for curiosity and for nature's wonder It seems is not waning. In his ninety s not at all he seems is keen as ever to get out into the world. He said if if I'm asked I go he's head as if he might just put his backpack on and leave the room at any minute and looking for pangolins. I think you get that sense. That hearing from him of wonder of the world he now combines that much more with warning about threat to the natural world and one thing. I've wondered was when he had changed from being someone Houston wandered the globe. Ren- back pictures and stories the extraordinary places and wonderful animals to someone who wanted to send a strong message and this is what he said back in the sixties when the first time I saw a bleach car reef and I realized that the richest environments richest ecosystem the world has ever seen somebody being wiped out and we were doing it. So in the podcast. You Press Sir David Attenborough. Some hard hitting issues specifically his own carbon footprint. I mean he's a man who has traveled all over the globe. What did he have to say about that? And whether he's changed any zone habits to lessen that footprint I often find it. It's a question that makes interviewees regal and I think it makes David attenborough a bit uncomfortable. He takes the view that he travels on long voyages. They are actually pretty efficient in terms of the number of people that he takes with him. He says he doesn't travel unnecessarily but he did say he still sees it as part of the job that he does. It's integral to it. Orders to sitting here are breathing carbon dioxide. We're all contributing to in some way or another to the problem and it is impossible other line down and dying for us to cease doing so what we have to think about is the common dogs that I am producing simply talking to you and sitting here is not being misspent and I hope it. Isn't you fly. Let's yes I suppose I do but I don't fly anyway for fun. I fly as part of my job. Okay that's an interesting distinction. That's a good one As so an David attenborough ninety-three seen a lot and is now in the twilight of his life. How optimistic izzy. About the current environmental movement. He really came to life. I thought on this issue. He sometimes gets bored. Benching an elderly poster child for the Environmental Movement. He said it was visited him. But when we came to talking about Gratitude Burke. I thought he really had an interesting take on her and particularly why he thought that she'd made an impact. But I think it's absolutely astonishing what she's done and she's caused the most mighty potentates in the world to take breath and suddenly think about things. How is the attenborough family appreciated in the UK and have some of David attenborough zone kind of attitude. Shifts got paralleled The the the country's shifts he's a national treasure. It's it's a phrase itself news debate in. Which he he says he doesn't like but I imagine most people would rather be a national treasure national treasure. He's he's not really politically as active as much as someone who really wants to bring you the way that he sees the world into your living room and he believes that wonder is the first step of a broader awakening. He thinks that comes before the activism. Some people see it the other way round would be critical of him from that corner. But that's absolutely what he stands for why he continues to do what he does. Nine decades on and Macelroy podcasts. The economists asks thank you very much. Thank you very much okay. Bringing wonder into your living room. I like that especially right now. Turns out a lot of people do citizen. Science projects have gotten a boost in interest during the corona virus. Pandemic people logging onto their computers from their couches and helping out scientists. Remotely everything from digitizing data to hand counting animals in a photo. We have people counting penguins transcribing old documents. Look at weather records investigating sales and pretty much. Everything in between Chris. Lintott is a professor of astrophysics at the University of Oxford. He runs the website. Zun Averse Dot. Org the site lists dozens of online citizen. Science projects that people can sign up for. The website has blown up since lockdowns around the world have forced people to find things to do at home. We've been incredibly busy. We've had moulded a two hundred thousand people take in the last week which is about six or seven times what we expect. Lintott its own. Science project has also seen an uptick in participation it asks citizen scientists to look at graphs of light emitted from distant galaxies to try to find the shadows of passing planets by the people I tried to escape a little dreaming of new world's one. New Project has launched because of the uptick in volunteers. It's called rainfall rescue. Citizen Scientists transcribe old rainfall records handwritten over centuries by backyard gardeners in the UK utterly overwhelmed with response. We've had seven thousand volunteers get involved already. we've had half a million classifications numbers entered in the first twenty four hours climate scientists. Ed Hawkins at the University of Reading runs that project. I think people just want to distraction. At the moment fill up they can help out in some way and there were the situation that the world is currently in and this is a great way of doing it getting that historic rainfall data off of scanned. Handwritten notes will allow research the plug them into climate change models. Hawkins says climate issues have taken a back seat to the corona virus crisis but he hopes participating in projects like his can help people who are locked down to their sofas feel connected to the things they care about and each other. It is the first of April. No fooling we've been warned. It's going to be a difficult month. How about a song though? Nineteen sixty five in London.

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.

"Went to Cuba in the Spanish American war, then played at virtually every rally until he got rather sick of it while he was running for governor of New York in eighteen ninety eight before he became president, of course. And I need to answer a couple of questions at the very beginning. First of all the idea that I call him Theodore Roosevelt and not teddy Roosevelt as he's often known. Well, that's because president Roosevelt always loathed the name. Teddy winning was a tiny. Boy, he was called TD, and he didn't like it. And he never liked being called teddy and he wants declared. Anyone who calls me teddy doesn't know me at all. And I certainly hope that by the end of this broadcast. You will know president Theodore Roosevelt. Well, there's also great confusion about the pronunciation of his name. There are people who say Roosevelt, and they will say Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin Roosevelt. Then there are other people say, no, no, they know that Franklin said Roosevelt because we have all kinds of recordings of him saying, but they'll say Theodore Roosevelt. He always said Roosevelt. He very clearly did and I have become friends with president Roosevelt's great granddaughter. In other words, her grandmother was president Roosevelt's daughter, and I asked her is there any doubt at all that everyone in your family says Roosevelt. She says, no, it's Roosevelt stop with the Roosevelt. And then the last question about the title of this very special broadcast on the Michael Medved. Show calling him the all American boy. I do that because part of the fascination with president Roosevelt is his boyish nece which lasted is entire life. He never quite grew up. In fact, one of the most famous statements about him was made by the British diplomat, Cecil spring rice who became a very good friend with president Roosevelt when he was in the White House. And he said, you must always remember about the president that he is about six and there were others. Who were also impressed with his boyish nece Ellie route the gray eminence who served in TR's cabinet. Said on the president's forty sixth birthday. He said you've made a good start in life and your friends have great hopes for you. When you grow up. And then later six years later in nineteen ten he greeted him on his birthday by writing Tim this after president Roosevelt had been reelected Theodore, you're still the same. Great overgrown boy as ever. And most movingly of all, and I just came across this. And it's stunning to me. Is. Former president Theodore Roosevelt humbled himself and came to the White House to beg a favor. Of the man who had defeated him in his last race for the presidency. Woodrow Wilson, he he didn't like Woodrow Wilson, he wants referred to Woodrow Wilson as the real WW stood for weasel words, which is quite a thing to say, but he came to. President Wilson in the White House in nineteen seventeen after America entered World War One. And president Roosevelt begged him to allow the president he begged the present to allow him president Roosevelt to organize a regiment and lead a regiment at the front because he wanted to spend his own money to recruit people to get volunteers. And president Roosevelt at the time was in his late fifties. He wasn't in perfect health. And Wilson said no. But afterward. He wrote this in his diary. He is a great big. Boy, I was charmed by his personality. There was a sweetness about him. That is very compelling. You cannot resist the man. And people felt that way about Theodore Roosevelt for most of his life. And part of the reason that he remained an overgrown boy his entire lifetime was because his actual boyhood was at least for early years. So miserable. He had a terrible case of asthma as a child. He was born to a family of privilege, otherwise he might not have even survived, but his family had come here with some of the original Dutch settlers in. What was originally called new Amsterdam? They came in the middle of sixteen hundreds and the family was always successful. They were prosperous his father. Theodore Roosevelt, senior was a widely respected community leader and a successful importer of glass, and generally a very dedicated community minded businessman. And in terms of asthma. Young TD as he hated being called was too sick to attend school. And his mother took him to various practitioners who attached mustard plasters at one point. They massaged his chest so vigorously that it started to bleed he got electric shocks. And none of it seemed to work. The only thing that worked was the time. He would spend in his father's arms. And he remembered years later, I could breathe. I could sleep when he had me in his arms my father. He got me breath. I could sleep when he had me in his arms. He got me lungs strength.
