Hey, it's great to be here. So the stream was a massive success as Faras viewership goes, but it was also billed as a get out the vote effort. Do we know how successful that Wass At the peak point of the stream folks of the DNC were saying that they were getting the most referrals to the website? Two. I will vote dot com than they ever have. Do We know how money that Wass I was not able to get a specific figure. But during the vice presidential debate they bought fly will vote dot com And then when Taylor Swift Said that she was going to endorse Joe Biden they bought Taylor will vote dot com So there have been huge referrals to this link before and saying that the stream was bigger than say. That huge viral moment with the fly, and Taylor Swift, who is arguably one of the most famous celebrities in the world, says a lot Now, a lot of folks weren't going to sit through the entire thing. But there were moments that were clipped and put on Twitter or YouTube. Like when AOC talked about socialized medicine with H Bomber guy, you go to the doctor and you say I have this problem, and then they prescribe you medicine and then you just go pick it up. That's it. And then you go home. And you Google how much it would have cost in America. Oh, my God. Later he kills her. I'm actually a bit heartbroken, but, hey, life is cheap. Can you talk about that moment, so people and users on twitch our custom to diving in and out and jumping in the chat and chatting for a little bit and then maybe going watching on TV or some other video so unimportant part? Of the twitch culture is the clips function. And when people do catch something interesting those clips in those conversations Khun Go viral and reach even bigger audiences on Twitter on Facebook on YouTube than they ever could on twitch because which of course, is live. But these clips will last forever. Now. Polygon Senior Editor Patricia Hernandez wrote this week that it wasn't just about organizing and savvy. This was fandom. Those hundreds of thousands of viewers included thousands of stands, referring in this case to the AOC diehards. For people who you know, aren't as hep to the jive as I am. Stan is a term that's drawn from the title of an Eminem song. Right, Right. My girlfriend jealous because I've talked about 24 7, but you don't know him like I know you slim. No one does. You don't know what it was, like people like us growing up for me, man. I'll be the biggest fan. You'll ever lose yours, then. Yes, we could be together. When it comes Tio stand culture with pop culture and movies and television. Oftentimes people will draw fan art of their favor. Characters and people were doing that for a OSI in 2018, and she was re posting that fan art on her instagram page. So she has been building this community of people for a very, very long time. And that's why Tuesday's stream was so successful she already had this base. There are already people who stand each bomber guy. There are already people who stand Tucson piker and poking Manet and the other folks who are on there. There was just a bunch of communities colliding in a really interesting way.

What I Do To Guarantee My Funnel's Success
"Already. So I wanted to do this episode because. I was bored this weekend not really board. On. Friday, we've actually office, and then one of the guys who team Nick Sanders Hey. Fun Projects you want to do on the side. It'd be kind of fun as like what is the fun project that we have on the side that you know? We can do real quick and he's like I. Love to his Busselton out I'm like, okay. We started thinking back and remembered that eight years ago I had to say. First. Sight called T smackdown. And because picking two competing concepts philosophies or whatever, and make a t shirt for each one. Let people vote with their wallets tries to come to sign like, Oh, I want this wins today by the teacher to make sure that wins right and so I'm right designed the site we had designed eight years ago because. It was. So. Funny Because we were. It was back when. Obama was running against Romney and so. The initial fouls we found had Obama versus Romney thing and so it's kind of fun and it was found that. We found that those PSG fouls let's do this make this. So he took it and he got all working side click funnels and spend the whole week in doing that and obviously the elections are coming up right now let's say let's do some by trump shirts. This we got designers going shirts and all sorts of stuff anyway suspend this really project that would together literally like no time it's crazy like it's been sitting on my hard drive four years now like. His files look so cool. If you want to see it in action, I'm not sure when this podcast little drop. My guess is hopefully, the site will be live by them but his tee-shirt smackdown dot com so you can go see there anyway. So constantly pick two different shirts to compete right so like when the movie twilight came, we could have done like Edwards Edward versus. Joseph or during the bachelor season could be this person because that person or whatever. Right and so you can be things you put out there and the communities of the things Ogle vote on him. And so. This one right like. Less than a month before the election everyone's really angry about both sides we should capitalize on this right as capitalist do and so. Together, and so jake, our team went and got a whole bunch of really cool. T shirt designs the he's he made. One. Some for trump some for Biden and we through on site and way they've been killing themselves almost ready to go. So we're can go live. Anything getting. Pick. Your favorite go to t shirt SMACKDOWN DOT COM by what you want to prove to vote with your wallet. But. Anyway I'm telling you this because. A lot of times for something right and you're spend time and energy June this. I have no idea. It's going to take me all this time and I'm not going to work or not, and all this fear. The reason why? I'm able to do crazy things like this study fears because before I said yes. Before we started the process, the first question that we asked was if we do this thing where we can get the traffic for it that was the question and if I don't know the answer that question the answer. The answer is always no, we're not doing the right. To know that I and so that was the first question where we traffic and I was like, okay, well. Traffic. For this means we need conservative Republican. People we need Liberal Democrat people right and where we find people may okay their email lists week commit here here and here, and then there's email list here here and here, and then the here's the facebook page we can target. Here's here's the liberal. Here's the conservative. Here's the answer really quickly in as quickly could found is many different variations. As. We could of both sides know where you traffic. So very quickly boom here's the traffic I think conservatively probably said, I don't tend to twenty thousand clicks in three or four day period time, which is how long lily smacked probably in the blasting, and so let's do it right and so now Dick and Jake and James who've been working on the site on the free hours after hours, the weekends and stuff. While they're doing that I just went and text all these people's Hey can rent agilis. Yes. Clarin Angeles. Yes. How much does it cost wanted this date I want this much and within. Within twelve minutes maybe. I had enough traffic lined up to get about some between probably ten to fifteen thousand clicks half on the conservative side and half on the liberal side and so now when the lights sites live and click a button that fast sales and start coming in. So. What do you guys? Number One 'cause I want to show off? Brag. Bummer. Fund idea that we had eight years ago we're finally actually executing on. But number two is for you guys start thinking about this gay that's one of the biggest things people have this much time and energy and effort on their idea and their thought, and they're going to be theirselves messaging to build their funnel, and then right we're traffic. and. That should have been the first question not the last I remember. His pre click funnels. No with a it was right when I first came out actually so. Five years would probably I was in London and I spoke this really cool. Then afterwards, they my wife and kids were still. gallivanting around Lyndon Y was. Finishing my speaking I sat in the hallway talked for two or three hours to all the people that was really fun. Definitely as introvert, but it was it was still good talk nationalist questions number one person asked me this question that I'd never answered before. No nobody ever asked me before but he asked the question he said man, you've been doing this so long how do you know that? Something's going to be successful before you do it now?
How An Airline Worker Honors Fallen Military Members
"It's time now for story course Military Voices Initiative, which amplifies stories about service members and their families. Today. We'll hear from Brian McConnell. He's been an airline worker for almost four decades. Much of that time he's worked on the ramp. The area where aircraft refueled, boarded and loaded. But Taking on other responsibilities, ones that weren't in his original drop description. Ryan McConnell runs the Delta Honor Guard, a group of volunteers at the Atlanta airport who greet every plane that carries the remains of a fallen military member. That story. Cory sat down with his wife, Nora. To talk about it. How did you get involved with the honor Guard driving across the ramp? One day doing my job. I witnessed some guy's taking care of a fallen soldier, Hannah blue cart with all the logo's from all the military branches. And it should all gave some some gave all And I am and pull over and collect myself as I thought. It was just amazing that total strangers could take care of our military fallen. Can you tell me what you go through to honor these soldiers while the procedures are once I get a notification, I'll notify everybody on the Honor Guard. We have folks who come from all over the airport from the bag points from the gates from maintenance. And even the pilots group. Sometimes there's 20 of us there. Sometimes there's two of us there. But there's always at least someone to meet every fallen that comes into the Atlanta airport. We'll cover the casket with the flag. And as they brought out of the aircraft, the honor guard will march up with flags from each branch of the service. In which time I go to the escort, usually someone from their squadron. Present them with a card, a coin and a prayer to give to the next of kin. What makes you so dedicated to do what you do for all of these soldiers and their families? The number one reason is the right thing to do. These folks have made the ultimate sacrifice and the least we could do is take care of him. My father served 21 years in the air force with a tour of Vietnam. Course you know her son is active in the Air Force, and it's served two deployments to Afghanistan. And heaven forbid, if something ever happened to our son, I would hope that whoever's carrying for him went here for him with the love and respect. And the honor that I will care for their sons and daughters meeting You've always been a staunch supporter of me with the honor guard and I know sometimes it gets trying when you're sitting in the cell phone lot for three hours past my shift or coming in early. We're coming in on days off. But I have never watch. Heard you complain and ah Actually appreciate that. Some people say they have a calling in life. I guess I found mine. Although I have never served. I tell people this is my way of serving.
TheLatest Brexit News
"Older listeners may recall a time when October fifteenth was last ditch do-or-die deadline by which agreement between the UK and the EU had to be reached else the UK would sail full steam ahead and damn the torpedoes towards a no deal brexit on December thirty first that deadline yesterday and almost as if the UK government is desperately bluffing negotiations appear to be very much ongoing after a you leaders conclude a meeting in Brussels UK Prime Minister. Boris. Johnson will speak on this subject later today one join with more on this by Stephanie, Boston UK and Ireland correspondent for developed. Stephanie How Does the EU take the UK's deadlines at this point the. Statement suggested that it's now up to the UK to quote. Mike necessary moves. I think the the European Union never took that deadline series at all I. Mean after all as you just set a new introduction. To have been so many deadlines I admit I'm also old I forget. deadlines that Boris Johnson has been giving thirty to thirty. First, of January, thirty first of December now, it's the fifteenth Tober. Never took it seriously because if you talk to the people who really understand the? Material Challenges in drafting legal texts they were saying First of all, there were two big gaps in really crucial issues and the second is even if you then can fill gaps politically, you have to then do the precision work of legal wording and that can't be done. In the Metro for night and so there was always an expectation that this European Council will come and go, and then they will sit down again and by early November conclude hopefully. So what are those gaps as things stand such sticking points as there are what other? where the main thing is state aid or what would with the would of other term state aid is meant which is well the Europeans rather call it playing seal that is something that has been written into the mandate from the very beginning back in twenty seventeen. And that means that because the United Kingdom is not a member of the European Union anymore. But is so close. It's a neighbor and should have free access to the European market. The British government needs to follow also the rules of competition. So for example, state eight, I remember in the summer I was in Berlin and someone in the German government made the point to me that. What the Europeans cannot accept for example, the British government giving millions and millions to Japanese carmaker. Attracts them to come to say Sunderland Create fifteen thousand jobs not fulfill the standards that the European Union expects for this kind of production and then be able to. Export freely into the European market. So basically dumping wages dumping competition that's something that is not not on the cards. For the Europeans, we would be deeply cynical view for the EU to take but then this is politics. Do they feel like the pandemic and the associated economic damage caused by might actually have strengthened the E. US hand in these negotiations, which is to say the UK will be much much less keen to risk the further disruption and expense no deal brexit. Yeah I think I mean you might say that's a bit cynical but of course, they looking at the situation in their own countries and of course, at the situation, the economic situation in the United Kingdom, which is very, very dire expected to be many many job losses in the months to come already we had. An economic downturn of almost twenty percents of GDP, of course. If there wasn't the pandemic, it would be easier for Boris. Johnson to walk away also had in mind when he won the election year ago December twenty nineteen, he campaigned on the platform saying I have a deal. So people believed him and he they voted him because he had an oven ready deal now, not even twelve months later he comes back and says, oh, by the way, I don't have a deal and that means that will be tariffs that will be used on the border. They will be higher prices they will be again problems to have everything in the supermarkets to the towards the end of the year early twenty twenty one. So that doesn't really go down well with his new voters in the north who were expected to not only brexit but sunlit landscapes. I mean from your point of view covering all this for a a German readership how hard is it to keep them interested in this especially given the the pandemic, which is much greater priority for all countries to do you get the sense that not necessarily European leaders but European public still paying any attention to this at all. They do a little bit of attention but to be honest yes, I mean in Germany because of rising number SOC new infections and new rules coming in and quite a lot of tensions now between Democrats and the the region's a difficult to to get attention I'm I think there is also an image problem for the United Kingdom now because all the news that are coming out whether it's with German TV radio or even pay person. Is Rather say not very complimentary of the British government in how they manage covet in how they manage. Brexit. But I must say when I read David tweet class. WHO's the chief negotiator for Britain and he said he was very disappointed and then set the prime minister said something on September nine, which was if there's nothing we can work with on October fifteen we will walk away. I think is a slight chance. He might walk away because they have been reckless if you remember the internal market bill with which they brought. Have Broken International Law I. Think There's a certain recklessness in this government so I don't completely exclude that in two or three hours whenever he announces stays, he might walk away. So on that from, there's been a lot of talk in British press. This week of those aerial photographs of sections of Kent being turned into a lorry parked does it strike you that perhaps those are actual serious preparations rather than more theatrical bluffing. No of course, these are serious preparations you have to be prepared and not only even in the case of a deal. If there is if there's no deal will be catastrophic even if it's the deal, still the fact is the United Kingdom has left the European single market, and therefore they have to be checks on the border whether it's from Franz coming into job. I think it's around ten thousand lorries a day in maximum times that have to cross go back and forth in this tiny little place pulled off Dover. And therefore you have to expect massive queues and they they already started with these preparations I remember like almost two summers ago when you drove down to what Folkston, you would see these additional catch that we're building. Now they're building the parking spaces. So obviously we have to expect. Destruction and maybe severe disruption Stephanie. Balls and. He's joining us.
The Birth of a Nation & The Origins of the NAACP
"Most early films consisted of one real. Lasted around fifteen minutes and cost a few hundred dollars to produce. All of that changed in Nineteen fifteen. When a film called the birth of a nation? A three hour long saga was released by Director D, W, griffith it instantly stood out as a technological and storytelling marvel. It also stood out as a monumental piece of blatantly racist propaganda. The birth of a nation fixes, certain story of the civil war and reconstruction in the minds of the American public, and that story is that black people were too lazy and ignorant to fully master the citizenship that they were offered by reconstruction. Birth of a nation really didn't have black people it. So these white people in black face portraying congressman who are obviously not ready for self-government. Portraying the idea of. Rapist and these all the stereotypes that are believed by many many Americans. The film was met with fierce resistance from African Americans particularly from a recently founded organization focused on the advancement of the race, the end up boys EP. One of the most important early initiatives of the N. Double ACP was. Against the birth of a nation, they generated a lot of interest by protesting FM and drew in a great deal of support from African Americans. Despite its best efforts, the NWC couldn't persuade censorship boards or theaters. To limit the film's reach. But the young organization gained national prominence because of this campaign. That year membership almost doubled. And that number would continue to grow as it melted the fight against Jim Crow. Those activists descended at the time. Those dissenting voices were always there. They were there during the darkest periods of American history and remembering that tradition to me is almost more important than remembering the failures and the losses and the terrorism the black people faced.

Your Business Plan is a Military Mission Michael Penney - burst 15
"Right. The thing is though is you've got to get that mission by in it's hugely hugely critical in order to get your team to enveloppe towards it. You know and I would also say too because it is organizational is cultural. I'm GONNA steal a line from Mattis when I quote him. You can lead for the people below you. You can lead for the people above you, but you can't do both at the same time I'd like heavy. They are both going to hold you accountable. At the same time. No matter what you're either GonNa, get it from your people that are below. You're going to get it from higher and you as the leader you're you're the pipeline for both of those I experienced that while in a war zone with three hours of sleep in you know we gotta move 'em around. So that way the Afghans don't realize our actual posture is here right. So calm under stress Marcus earliest Kubilius serious other different STOIC folks who can help out in that regard. Talked about in the beginning do your check in I met like an eight maybe like a six four. You know I'm I'm trying man with spirituality, get it up. You know what I'm saying. But it I have all of these different influencers of yesteryear. You know I I. Don't watch TV. I'd rather read a book I read the learn in the morning and I read for fiction in the evening in order to kind of shut my brain back I bet sleep. See the thing is though is like a trying to get people into this mentality of being able to go into business in the work? Yes. Living with a purpose, right? Okay. I think a whole lot of people is look at that. Go I don't really know what that means. I look at it and I go. Well, if you cut grass living, you absolutely think about this and I know people who are this passionate I'm not joking about cutting grass they're landscapers and they look at something and it's like a barber looking at a shaggy. You know person walk in off the street feel like they're almost disgusted by it. It's something that they need to do. It's compulsive they have to do it. They have to make that are look amazing right and I've seen that there was people who truly care about what they're doing. They're Krasne they look at that and they go. That's a big problem. But I can make beautiful you know. So we can give all of these different anecdotes goes back to well yeah. How do you get mission high in from your people who are trying to sell? Insurance let's say for instance. And and so there it is. It's vilifying the need. It's getting the alignment of the people that around your team and that I have to say is the accountability that's going to happen both ways because look expectations that are talk through. Yeah they matter a little bit. Okay expectations that are put down on paper. That you can hold like we hold each other accountable contracts and other stuff like that. Those are expectations which need to be met. Right. So when you fill out a five paragraph business plan, what you're doing is you're putting your intentions expectations down on paper yours the real question. You need to know everything. The short answer is absolutely not a matter of fact it's kind of better that you just know enough to be dangerous and then you let your experts you've delegated tax for through reason you let them run with the ball and I think that kind of segues a little bit toward okay. You've written the plan it's action oriented.

Recent polls have shown that Texas is still leaning Republican, that still long lines were common among many polling locations as were masks but in suburban Houston's Fort Bend County technical problems kept machines offline for more than an hour as. Hundreds of people waited to vote county officials there say it's extending early voting hours for the rest of the week because of those issues early voting ends October thirtieth well, Harris County saw record turnout on the first day of early voting by two PM more people had cast ballots than the whole first day of early voting in two thousand sixteen around lives with travel has more from voters she talked with from across the region lines varied from one polling location to another in the Houston area.

Democrats Have to Play by a Fierce New Set of Rules
"Every single day. We get some kind of reminder. Of the reality. That Republicans who right now. Control the Senate and the White, house but even when they just control the Senate. Even when they just control a a part of a single branch of government, they didn't control the House and the Senate during the Obama Administration for most of it they just controlled. The Senate one part of the legislative wing of our government. And yet with that one wing. They effectively blocked. Most of Barack Obama's legislative priorities, hundreds of. A. Federal Judicial appointments that he hoped to make they literally stole a Supreme Court nomination away from him a supreme. Court appointment when he nominated Merrick Garland and they literally would not even hear it would not even allow it to come to the floor. Now we see. Real life voter suppression before our eyes. And if you don't understand and I saw many conservatives say now let's not voter suppression if you don't understand how having people wait in line. For Ten to twelve hours is a form of voter suppression. You're dumb. I people around the world saw it and said. Oh, my God I've never heard of anything like that in my life particularly people from the world's developed countries and I, and I'll say the world's fifty most developed countries said I've never waited more than five to ten minutes a day in my life yesterday people were waiting in line for ten hours twelve hours literally writing me showing me the videos I lived in Georgia for almost twenty years in we saw it and they did this by in some counties closing virtually all locations to vote. In counties that have a million people they would now have one place you could vote and in in the inside, this is what this is. What baffled me These places were understaffed sometimes with two to three people sometimes with two three voting booths. In the primary location in Cobb County Georgia, which is part of Metro Atlanta. They were only allowing about sixty people in our to vote. Well when a few hundred people are in line. It all of a sudden when people I got there like, Oh, it took me two or three hours to vote. By the time, it got lunch. People had been in line for seven hours. People were in line from the darkness of the morning to the darkness of the night. They had too few voting booths with one voting location and too few staff members inside. This isn't an accident bis done on purpose everybody knew. That yesterday was going to be an engaged day of voting. But people in counties all over this country. have done what they can. To use their power. To make sure they suppress voters it's voter suppression because most Americans can't cannot stay. For for for two hours. Most Americans literally can't afford to take an hour out of their data vote people had to leave to go pick up and drop off their kids people had worked to do people have medical concerns that that don't allow them to stand up or be in line of be outdoors for so many hours. It's preposterous. Yes. It's a form of voter suppression. Two days ago I was excited. because. A federal judge overruled the governor of Texas who said in our counties over Texas you can only have one place to drop off your ballots one box to drop it off some counties in Texas. If you've never been are enormous and he said listen, you can only have one place to drop off your ballots and a judge overruled that and said, no, that's arbitrary in particularly in your biggest most populated counties, it's also a form of voter suppression because now some people might have to drive a mile but some going to drive thirty miles the people who don't have. Access to cars people who cannot necessarily afford public transportation. This is unnecessary. You can have countless. All over the the cities and counties. and. They overruled the governor said, yes you're county can have multiple ballot boxes for people to drop off their ballots. And early this morning while we were all asleep. A panel of three judges. All appointed by Donald Trump. Unanimous unanimously said, no, no, no, the governor's right. These counties they can only have one. That's what he said. It's okay. They can only have one. How did that happen? Donald trump has appointed more judges in his three and a half year. Than almost every American. President has ever appointed in two terms in great part because when he became president when Donald Trump became president Republicans blocked countless. Of Vacancies in in the District Court positions. And consequently when trump came into office, there were over one hundred of them still open and he has appointed all over this country inexperienced young people that have lifetime appointments to these roles. Democrats and Republicans. are playing by a completely. Set of
How to get a Helicopter License
"Let's talk about what it takes to get a helicopter certificate because I'm sure that's probably the first thing in people's minds. What are the FAA requirements for getting a helicopter private? Well. You're GONNA, find the requirements under part sixty, one, one, zero nine, which is where you're gonNA find the airplane requirements as well, and essentially it's a very closely mirrored to what the airplane requirements are you going to a total of forty hours under a part sixty one school Twenty hours of that is required to be dual ten hours of it is required to be a solo on your own, and then the other ten hours are generally made up of preparatory work or some of the students weaknesses in what they need to prep for the the ride and I, think everybody knows that forty hours is the minimum. Certainly airplanes people end up with more than that. What's kind of? The typical range of ours that people end up when they get their private in what drives, that WH- take some people longer than others. So all the requirements for helicopters were really based off of the airplane requirements. If you look anywhere in the far aim, you're gonNA see a lot of mention about the airplanes and it's not until you get down to the bottom of the regulations where it says except for helicopters. Helicopters can do this or this doesn't apply to helicopters special be far for an example, doesn't apply to helicopters as far as not being able to get it at any time you can request it at any time but yes, a typically people get their license about fifty hours seems to be difficult I. Don't I'm hearing more and more than in the airplane world fixed-wing world that taken people closer to the fifty hour mark in I. Don't know what that what that's caused by. Like you said and like the regulation say the forty hours is really minimum. I have had one of my students get. It is little as four three hours. But for the most part, the average is around fifty hours or so in helicopters I can say they're quite a bit different than airplanes. There's a lot more moving parts in just getting the actual hand. Eye Coordination Down to fly the helicopter is probably typically what takes a little bit more time. Now on top of that, you know it has to do with people schedule. Everybody's busy whether you have a job or a family or your own school or whatever. It might be. You know the more consistent you are in your training, the bathroom it's GonNa go typically. Nowadays, it other than when you and I flew. It's pretty nice because we have the Internet and we have. Why a few programs on that, you can take ground school online whether it be three o'clock in the afternoon or three o'clock in the morning whatever works for you, and then you and I. Can. Sit Down with our students and do information clarification making sure that people understand what they're learning. What about folks like me? Who have a airplane certificate and actually have one helicopter lesson on my belt Bell let's forget about that. What are the our the requirements different for someone who's already a pilot? Yeah. So right there the requirements are thirty hours flight time twenty hours of dual and ten hours of Solo. For the most part. All My ad on students are still taking somewhere in the forty hour range to fifty hour range, just depending on their schedule but the the minimum requirements drop by ten hours. Now, if you go to a part one, forty, one school that typical forty hours initially drops down to thirty five hours. That being said it still minimum the way I run my flight school as far as the education the syllabus recording I run at very much like a part one, forty, one school. So from a learning skill standpoint airplane pilots at any kind of a disadvantage because we need to unlearn things that we thought we knew. Well. I can tell you go on the opposite way for sure since I did that getting my helicopter first and then my but yeah. So there are two things that really pop out my head. One of the things is you know airspeed is our lifeline in an airplane in a helicopter that's not the case rotor RPM. Line the one of the. GonNa Notice with new pilots or on pilots. I should say when they're coming in for approach, they don't like getting slow whereas one. You know what you do when you coming on approach whether we're practicing shallower, not steep approaches whatever they may be we end in a hover. And airplane pilots don't like when you touch the ground. You're still going down the runway though is just getting them to understand that it's okay to lose airspeed because it's rotor RPM that we're concerned with the other thing is in a stall or an engine failure. One of the first things they tell you to push forward to regain airspeed don't do that in a helicopter, particularly a two bladed rotor system helicopter because that'll put you into A. Low gravity situation, and if you're in a low gravity alone g situation, you can actually aerodynamically take take the fuselage of the aircraft and the rotor system that is no longer supporting the fuselage and you can actually snap that off similarly to over controlling an airplane in saying Arab addict situation or windy situation breaking the wings off other want things that you need a particularly watch. The other thing is we don't lead with the rudders interns. We don't have rudders we have pedals, but they're anti Torque pedals in that strictly to keep the ball centered if you will or to keep the nose pointed into the wind, the more power you pull. The more anti left pedal that you need an opposite that of meeting right pedal when you're taking off in an airplane.
How I Built Resilience: Cynt Marshall of Dallas Mavericks
"Welcome to how I built this resilience edition. On these episodes, we talk with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're dealing with this very challenging moment in human history the creative ways are trying to figure it out. So back in two thousand sixteen I got a chance to talk with Mark Cuban he's one of the sharks on shark tank. Of course he's also the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and it was really open and honest conversation and you can check it out in our feet if you haven't heard it. Recently I was really excited to talk with Sinn Marshall who mark brought on a couple years ago as the CEO of the Mavericks sent is actually the first. African. American woman to be the CEO of any NBA team? Now, this is only her second season with the Mavericks I was in the two thousand, eighteen, nineteen season last year, and when she got the call from our Cuban she didn't even know who he was. Embarrassing that I didn't know but it's not totally it's cool. Actually it's better that you didn't know he was in Indiana I worked very TNT for thirty six years. The came to Dallas to do culture transformation in hr work is something completely different for at and T. and after six years of that retired, and then on February twenty two, thousand, eighteen, I started getting all these text messages and actually. I thought it was one of my kids I have work yet. So I thought, it was one of my kids looking for money. So I handed my husband phone and said, one of the kids need money they're blowing up the phone can't handle it, and then he came back and said I think you need to return this is Mark Cuban and so course I asked the moves that and all that. and. So when I when I went to see him. He talked to me about sports illustrated article had just come out and was very genuine about wanting a culture transformation just to clarify this is the article that came out about like twenty years of sexism and. Pretty devastating article about the culture of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban. He came to you saying we got to begin to solve fix this problem and. I need your help, and so we we talked for about almost an hour and I still hadn't decided that I was went to do it an into women talk to me as I was leaving office. What they say to you they said like, please we need you said, are you the person who Marquez going to come in and save us I said well personal I do not have the power or ability anybody but yeah we. are talking about me coming in to to help out and they said you have to come and they started telling me some things that were happening and I said, well, you go home pray about it and maybe I'll come back tomorrow and so I did go back the next day and I was there for about three hours in a conference room with people just coming in and out talking to me mark even know I come back. But. Just met a wonderful people who needed leadership and that's what mark wanted. That's when he asked for and so I said Yes in sin from what I understand when you got there and this I think this is pretty common in a lot of corporate environments and certainly maybe in the sports world from red, there were no women in leadership positions are very few in leadership positions and actually wasn't incredibly diverse either and that was one of the first things that you wanted to tackle hats in had inside a recipe. So the first thing idea was set out of vision. And the vision. This basically said, the Dallas Mavericks was set the NBA. Standard for diversity and inclusion by two thousand and nineteen meeting we have out what nine to do that. So that was the vision we set out because I know the business case for diversity, and you have to have a diverse group of people around the table if you really want to be successful as you can be, and then I had one on one without employs they made some leadership changes and so now we have almost fifty percent women in leadership and forty-seven seven percent people of color and so. I met maps. So your goal was to set the NBA standard for diversity inclusion and are you now the most diverse inclusive leadership team in for an NBA organization I know we're we're somewhere at the top of we. We actually ended up getting the NBA's diversity inclusion award in January for all the work we have done. So that was That was pretty special for us because we have a lot of people working very hard on not just a versity because you know there is a difference a diversity is about the mix. It's about race gender ethnicity, all of that but inclusion is about the climate the sense of belonging it's about what you do with that meet some people, and so we've been very focused on all of that including Ebony including equity fairness and. All. That and so I had a recognized by the NBA was big for us I mean, obviously, we still have a lot of work to do. We'll always have a lot of work to do but I think we've made some progress indefinitely. Let's different and feels different from watching two thousand eighteen according to what the post are telling well
Storylines from Roland Garros 2020
"Everyone John, we're up here in this week's sports illustrated tennis podcast late Wednesday night we have reached the round of four. We've reached the semi. Draws so Jamie and I will talk some tennis from Roland Garros and. We would try to keep it sufficiently general. So the school be absolutely by the time you're listening Jamie how are you? I'm good. How are you from a little little cold but no complaints it's been spin. French Open like no other, it's been an interesting interesting time so far but you know the the good news is Kobe hasn't really become the story, and if we're talking about the chilly weather and not a global pandemic, that's a win in itself. In here, we are at the business end of our second major in four weeks. You're cold or office cold. I think some other players are cold I think joke just cold I've seen a lot of PARKAS. I actually double check the weather temperature today because I said, how cold is it? Really there people are inferred jackets and you know Winter Winter Parkas I think some people look like they're going skiing. Is it really that cold I? Mean you're you have survived many New York winters what's going on? Oh boy I'll say a few things. One of them is that whatever the temperature is it is that an accurate indicator is has that sort of British chill where you're. Just coal to the bones. You know I mean obviously for for athletes it's it's different. You're running around your your body's warming up than stopping as rob pointed out I think some of this is just what people are accustomed to. There's a part of me that doesn't mind it. You know we we played tennis in extreme conditions or extreme heat must failure I think it probably speaks well of the sport that same players that win when it's one hundred twenty degrees or winning when it's forty nine degrees. I would say that I think this has had a bit of an impact, not so much on the level of play but I don't think the caliber of play has dropped because everybody is. Dressed like they're going skiing I think it hasn't changed the mood in the vibe and we've got Novakova did and it's it's just funny how these tournament sort of change as they progress but there there is not been as far as i. can tell a whole lot of Kobe fear doesn't seem to be much of the talk it doesn't come up much in press conferences. Does, players like Daniel Collins shoot it down, but it's been if this is not the French Open that people are used to and I thought at the US Open the apparel manufacturers missed a golden opportunity not to do more with the surface area of these masks. Why not put a? Cough alligator or Nike swoosh mask, and here it's time to show off the winter gear in the Lacoste and Nike. And Adidas Park aware because as soon as the vitamins you've seen like as soon as the players. Get done leaving the court they as a record it Patrick of did it they all put on Ski Jack So It's been a twist on the tournament but again I mean. For the last six months you and I have been talking about. Bubbles and pandemics, and how are we going to get athletes from all over the world? Into into a common spot. And the fact that the talk has been a lot about. Tennis and conditions and scheduling and doubles and singles in wide open draws. And not about players tested positive I think is a good sign. For sure. I wanted to ask you I was reading and piece by CPS ignore and he he said that you know it was about the handshakes in about, of course, how they're really not happening anymore the racket touch. is now has now replaced it, and so I actually thought twenty because in the past few matches, we've actually seen some players after you know after the match in in the t match, he did it and there was some others where you know. They go to the night in a do this very strange hesitant high five or maybe there is a little bit of an embrace and course you sit there and you cringe and you say, oh no, they're touching each other amino they're so close I talk about Kobe and all this What is Of the players talked about the handshake what about you just watching? On my end I feel like You know a lot of after really great matches long matches. It's nice to see two opponents kind of embrace each other or just kind of you know pat each other on the back for for a hard-fought match and we don't see that what what are your thoughts on on just the lack of handshakes in this cova time. Yeah. You see handshakes like if you have. I have this thing where like I'll watch an old movie your you'll cringe and say, no social distance, oh. Yes. This was a bill before March of twenty twenty. So, yeah you see these these. Sort of belly paths or the even the on the shoulder at the you know the net you know I, mean I always loved the handshake I recited would've tennis is nice quirks. You spend hours battling with this opponent, and then the very first person you bake human contact with is that same opponent When Ron Swanson say about handshakes after the for dry and. In three seconds or something like that it's it's great. Now I mean the racket tap is a little bit strange in some players are are not even doing that other players are as as you know, there are have been a couple of exceptions. Dominant team seems to be a a serial offender which probably ultimately speaks well of him and it has has actually gone gone the hand I. He did what after the US Open finally did there were some some contact against Schwartzman I. Don't know I feel at some level you've been. You've been hitting a sweaty tennis ball back and forth for three hours at your opponent is touch. you know none of us are perfectly convicted and our Kobe protocol and the same person who watches groceries is. Also holding the poll on the subway. Think I think we all have a inconsistencies. I have to think if you've been using the same tennis ball as as another opponent and your bodily fluid is getting on that same tennis ball I don't know if you brush palms at the net for a second to is that really so bad but yeah. I mean there are a lot of sort of jarring little twists I mean the lack of a crowd I think has been especially acute here in France especially when French players have taken the court because often the the fans try to impose themselves on the match here Dan. Is it really happening? it'll be interesting to see what stays in what doesn't I mean if I never see another ball kid and all towel again, that's that's probably a good thing It's very strange doing a courtside interviewed a math. It'll be interesting to see I mean I think we're already sort of looking to twenty twenty, one I suspect there will be him shakes at the twenty twenty one Australian Open because the players will of quarantine for two weeks and essentially what what I'm wants the players were there. And test negative in are in this this quarantine situations that they they don't even have to wear masks
Interview with Eva Chen, director of fashion partnerships at Instagram
"Hey everyone. It's carly. This show might sound a bit different today because the skin is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen today Eva Chen joins me on skin from the couch. She is the director of fashion partnerships at Instagram, and before that she was the editor in Chief of Lucky magazine she is also known for her bestselling children's. Books, and for her loyal following on Instagram I am one of those loyal followers either I am so excited to get into this conversation. Welcome to skip from the couch. Thank you. Thanks for having me very excited to be here in my PJ's with you. I put makeup on trio carly. So honestly your PJ is more fashionable than anything. I own so you're good. To start with the question I like to start with every show skim your resume for us. At. The top of mind resume obviously would be my name and address should not be revealing podcast but I grew up in New York City and I was premed Johns Hopkins University, which is like you know where you go to be premed or any near neither of which I am I intern at Harper's bazaar the summer between junior and senior year and I think that's what kind of really set that light bulb off over my head that I wanted to work at magazines and I wanted to work in particular fashion magazines and Then worked at Elle magazine for three years and I worked at Teen Vogue for seven I was freelance for a bit ditzy consulting, and then I was editor in chief of Lucky for about a year and a half fifteen issues is how I think of it. Then I been at instagram since then for five years do fashion partnerships are you supposed to put like hobbies are skills? There is no right way to do this and I love how you doing it. So yeah what are your hobbies and skills if I were literally? Screaming my resume, my resume reflected. When I just said, I would not get hired. Super. In all over the place, my current hobby is composting and learning about gardening, and I feel like that would be a conversation starter at an interview and my skills are I. Don't know I'm still figuring out. This is a good resume. You'd make around two would I Definitely obviously for anyone that knows of you. Feels like they probably know everything about you because of your presence on instagram. That can't go go about you that people would be surprised to now. Feeling. What people don't know like I. Feel as a mom a working mother especially during cove Ed. The spring was a very dark time for me. It was really hard balancing home school in three hours a day. So I guess what you wouldn't know from. The constant like I think a lot of women feel a lot of people feel this is like Oh my God. I'm trying to figure it out and I'm trying to hold it all together.

That's people wouldn't know about me or they wouldn't know that secretly and quite introverted and my idea of a perfect night is not going out to like the coolest restaurant or living that sex in the city dream fashion life my ideal night really laying in bed reading a book and like maybe either drinking ginger. Or maybe if I'm feeling wild and crazy like a gossiper say. I'm very much a homebody. I don't know that people would assume that right off the bat
Continuous Glucose Monitors
"Hi everybody and welcome. This is episode number one, hundred, eighty, one of the intermittent fasting podcast I'm melanie avalon and imagine Stevens Hi everybody. How are you today Jen I am fabulous I am just immersed in all sorts of amazing data and learning about myself until like to elaborate I would. Melanie knows because she knows what I'm doing but for readers of Fast Feast repeat and even readers of. Fear you know I've been talking about personalized nutrition since I saw that famous Ted talk that I talk about with Dr Erin Seagal I saw it I twenty seventeen and it literally changed my life to understand that we all have personalized responses to foods and some of it's based on our genetic background. But a lot of it is in our gut microbiome and really just hormonal health in general. In fast, Feast repeat I talked about the work that Tim Spector is doing. He's my favorite Gut microbiome researcher from the UK and he had a study called the predict study, and then the predict to study which some of my friends did a year ago and I am now participating in the third round of this predict three it's with an APP called Zoe and he's one of the collaborators with. It but as part of the study for the past seven days I've been wearing a continuous blood glucose monitor that they sent me and I have to send it back, which is so sad because man is an opening to see how my body responds to different foods with my blood glucose. So I can see you know what it's doing all during the day all during the night up 'cause day. On how it responds to foods I'm so happy to report that I'm not surprised the foods that I thought that worked well for many guess what they work. Well, they do. So are you eating some of their stuff and your stuff? Well, I had to do that for two days. There were two days where I had to start the day eating these muffins that they sent me Oh, my Lord. Yuck. For listeners, we wanted to record the podcast earlier, which was like I can't record a podcast after eating the muffin. Hours right. I mean I was predicting that it was before I had even eaten the muffins but I had a feeling because I had to eat them in the morning cacique. You couldn't have anything before the muffins except water. Wake up in the morning and drink black coffee. So I had to eat the muffins and then wait four hours and then eat the muff a there were actually different muffins and then wait two hours and then I could you know have real food the first day of that opened at eight am and I never eat at eight am even on vacation you know if I'm going to have breakfast, we usually end up doing more of a brunch. So I can't think of the last time I've had food at eight am but I had to eat. I think it was three muffins that had been frozen and then I microwave dumb and the first round of muffins I think they're testing fat clearance like how quickly your body clears out fat after you eat a high fat meal. These were high fat muffins. There are high fat. Because, you could tell by reading the ingredients list you would not have probably eaten these muffins. going. To say. This is not a melanie study. No, you probably wouldn't have eaten the muffins but the first ingredient was like safflower oil or something Oh. Gosh. I know I, know I know but I ate them muffins than I was so crabby for those three hours 'cause they weren't satisfying at all. You know if I could put some butter on there or some strawberry jam but no I had to they tasted like a mix between a cornbread muffin and pound cake. But with less flavor said, then the the second set of muffins they were like gluten free cash I duNno? low-fat Muffins. But My my blood glucose responded great to both sets them up I had to do this blood test or I had to like squeeze out all this blood on this card and send it off to be anyway they're going to test the. I think my fat clearance because you had to do a certain number of hours after that, and it gives you a lot of information, but I also had to send an poop sample. That's right up my alley. Yeah. So that was interesting. It was a little more hardcore than the one I did for the American gut project. I won't go into details, but it was interesting. Let's just say and then I took them all to the post office and mail them in. Also. Fun, this guy like what's on your arm it was continuous blood glucose monitor and you know and I thought that was very bold question to ask a stranger at the post office but I explained it. But I should've said this is poop in this box, but I didn't. is putting it on hard. It was actually so very easy. It has the ability shared, but I did it you stick it to the back of your arm and you just in this little thing and you just click and then it just POPs. said it was easier than the finger stick. Okay two. Brands of CGM I'm betting great now. I haven't done either one yet. Well, this information is just so important I think because it's it's showed me. Like I had one meal that I've eaten so far that did not work very well for me. It was the only one and it was a flat bread topped with like a a lemon ricotta and then sauteed Brussels sprouts and then like Parmesan cheese and then a hot honey that one shot my blood glucose up higher than anything has so far probably the honey. But when I've eaten potatoes when I've eaten rice even. Toast. With egg on top. I. Have a very slow steady. Roz than a slow steady back down. I think that flat bread didn't have a lot of fat with the I mean had some fat but I probably normally have more fat with my carbs. So it just kinda spiked to me right up.

"three hours" Discussed on Little Atoms
"They brought this terror into the school. And it's very ugly and AS Roma where where best mother kind of shocked by it. And Hannah's Dad Actually. They're sitting at the same table as it transpires and he's tries to intervene and stop it because he knows if he literally toast one hundred. Is there in his Pajama? Yes exactly yeah. That's slightly off with about being close to amount in pajamas to start with even those little somehow continuing despite the Laura Illicit Latins. I'm now Danny Damn took it to Rosamund. Lupton took it about her latest novel three hours and Muslim and they want to bring us back to then racy and Bossy the two you can tell us about something about their journey from Aleppo basically but these two Syrian refugees who have been taken welcomed into the school by most people. That's where I think they've been welcomed by the community and Rayvey Sixteen. He's in love with his girlfriend And she doesn't know that yet. He's in a school play and he's poured his dad's copayment bath from Syria. And now he's being performed and he has apart One of the things that transpires is. He's he's very literate. He's very intelligent. He's very kind you know. He's he. S He's a refugee. We find out about his story and that he has ptsd but is also a lot of things in the present tense as well. That was important to me when I was writing him and so he's at to start with. He sees himself as Lance Macbeth. You know the boy who runs away and because he's left his mother and he feels tremendously guilty by that. There wasn't enough money for the people smugglers to pay for her as well. So it's just him and his brother he was fourteen and his brother was six when they made the training. And you see it in snapshots just a few images which highlight for him the dangers of that journey and now it's all happening again for him as he has to keep is probably safe. And Bassey's a little boy who you know. We read Syrian Folktales. And still does but is also reading wind in the willows. Where things are so. They're both kind of half immersed culture and also culture and refuses at one point. People don't want to hear the store and I didn't blame them all at tugging misery. It's you know I want to play spotify. Google play xbox Games binge-watch net flicks? So I didn't want them to be like okay comes the very worthy sooner Fiji characters. I wanted them to be very much. I kind of alive and interesting for themselves as personalities and as you mentioned you know they've been welcomed into the community and the school which prides itself on its Liberal Valley. As and then we start to see the parents you know some of them are obviously stolen liberals who were also sort of slightly smugly proud about the tradition of this school in it. Yeah and it starts to crack. When it becomes apparent that perhaps there's a terrorism elemen- involved and I think that fifth year on child makes you incredibly selfish and I think all parents know that that huge sufficient that comes with having a child which is terrible and I think they experience it in such a way in that sport center cafeteria where they're blaming two children effectively and they catch themselves and they know it's wrong but it's a moment where they some of them will see themselves for the first time just that they're not the very liberal people that they thought they were at the beginning and wonderful. It was particularly brilliant Muslim. You're necessarily talk about why this happens. But there's reason for basically Rio headlines FROM NEWSPAPERS. Yay Real people formenting hate against against Muslims to be brought into this story. I really wanted to to use of now. I remember seeing some headlines and seeing them altogether. I've been local copen on outside the front of the headlines. And it's day after day become shocking the drip drip drip of Islamophobic headlines. And I am such a misnomer on true Muslims Bank Christmas and it meant the council was calling Christmas Lights Winter Lights. I mean it was stupid. That and that became the headline and that drip feed of hatred and fear was something I wanted to explore in terms of the consequences of thatt's endorsement of hate really and seeing people's different and traitors or dangerous and how that might play out and especially at that linked with trump and how he disseminates Britain first tweets retweets tweets at forty million followers. Scott and I think he's a very real danger that our national press not all of them but quite a few do promulgate something very close to far right ideology and when an offer I wrote the book there was the terrible massacre in New Zealand and the murderer filmed it and one of our papers. Actually put that footage up on the newspapers site. One of them published his manifesto it. There's a thin line and I felt that was something. I think it's been exploited lot more recently but when I was writing the book it was something I didn't think had been talked about March or shown maybe in a story terms of what might happen. Tm People as a consequence. I think also this Benjamin the blurb the your novels have been you know. Richard and Judy Book Choices. There obviously like popular novels in sort of in that sort of way. So there's going to be people there read this novel the pick this book up and test guy. Who's as a mega read? His novel the also pick up the daily express. That's sort of part of the point. I mean I think I've told you what I was writing about which wasn't necessarily new terror attack on school but if that's engine that gets them reading you know maybe a more subtle nuanced view or two point things out. Maybe haven't been points out because Borodin are echo chambers. I'm one another and to kind of try and find a way to bridge. That was something I wanted to do without it. Being kind of course. Also it's felt was important that this wasn't written just for people that think like me and they're all obviously that's terrible. Maybe it's someone that hasn't those by it or you read the headlines about migrants you read the comments section of papers and it's like they're lesser like these boys and not like our children cockroaches cockroaches. Yeah I'm you know. Burn the boats C. Show drawing board is still quote unquote extraordinary that that we have that the last character I wanted to look was rose Palestine. Who's as detective inspector in sort of criminal psychologist through whose eyes we see the police coordination and the sort of anti terrorism efforts. And I guess I wanNA love the looker who she is. Let's talk about. How how you research? He'll how the police would respond to realize school sheets hiver police advisor and so I ask him what would happen. So there's gold silver bronze leads of command. I wanted to get that right and I find it quite interesting that their way from the school there in that kind of Porta cabins on control center and the screens and bottled water and school is snowing. And it's freezing and people hiding in the dark and the difference between there and Rose Polston so aware of that and she really wants to be in. The school isn't as you can't do anything. And I found that that kind of exactly disconnect but they need that remove to do their job and yet at the same time it feels quite alien I think for them as people wanting to go in and physically do something to help the kids I think for her. What is interested in her character is that she's not a police psychologist. Who's that interested in criminal minds in a this is not all the PSYCHOPATHIC fascinating? What interests are are the people? Ordinary people do extraordinary things and the kids in school. The helicopter pilot. He's flying implicit. Those are the people that matter to her and she says she does draw because those people master to her and I was actually interested recently. I've just been reading the five the untold stories and travelers victims. And Near My name Bushnell Miller. Who's a rape victim? He and it seems to me that there is now a much more interest in is not the the victims but telling the story from people's view who happen to find themselves victims of these terrible things and that they are center stage and have a voice and say rose postings job if you like is also not blame say the parents to knock cast blame and not glamorize what these terrorists all. These gunman are actually doing and I thought that was quite important. Even though I think it's quite interesting what she finds out and how she sees her job. It's not the focus of the novel. What about it? Let's Talk About School? Shootings more generally that in terms of research. And there's one thing that you talk about name. Which is this term. There's often come to associate with these these type shootings. Which is the Diet? Whether there's well you can tell us what that means come together with toxic consequences so in columbine was a sort of depressive as we can tell us like path so the suicidal depressive He basically wanted to himself by murdering other people and then being shot by the police which apparently widely is very common in the state's death by caught and very much groomed by this more powerful more kind of cold seems although these parents to give in twos or anything that he was more psychopathic in that combination came together and I was interested. We talked a little while ago is interested in how that talk sick combination that you feel the Macbeth lady. Macbeth wouldn't have started on that course so in the book. The kids in the theater which is a safe place. Relatively rare husband buttons through watching Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. And how a diehard is created. If you like this murderous start to understand what's happening in their school and then of course there's the witches and who they are which is another interesting thing for me was if you look at this. Columbine they were trying to find out. What was it music? Was it games anything cart being because otherwise it would be kids doing this up and down the country but must have been something else in people's has to be something else and I think Macbeth in Shakespeare's witches and I think in my book the Dot. Net's modern witches meet explore that. Yes so I was going to say we've talked about the the police action and you know you just mentioned you talk about the The man this is as it turns out where the shooters are coordinates in getting their weapons from. I wanted to talk about the schools. Plans at the school also has terrifyingly schools have very detailed even. Hey this is not. It's not everyday occurrence as is in America. But you know the idea that the school has a plan to deal with this sort of thing. I mean I think schools will have lockdown procedures which is just horrifying And Sarin assassinated. I live opposite market school and assigned the looked uncertain is different from the fire alarm and it's horrifying science so yes. I think it is reality that said in the states you can get a gun so easily. Been literally lined up like in the supermarket. It's extraordinary and here is not like that. You know disaffected kid cannot just go and get a gun or get someone to buy a gun so it is very different and therefore much less likely. I think that this is a what if scenario and it's exploring all sorts of things it's not saying is this is going to happen to finish off gator to readers of it. I shall read. We've spoken about Hannah. I'm so I thought I'd read a bit about Hannah. So this is a midway through work..

"The Strand magazine Critics Award and the Richard and Judy Book Club Readers Choice Award her next two novels afterwards and the quality of silence which was also region in GDP with Sunday Times Bestseller List. Books have been published in over thirty languages and resumes latest novel. Three hours we're going to be talking about today and to this lots of them. It's lovely SPE- here. Can you describe? How would you describe the novel first of all? I think it's very difficult. I think it's it doesn't really fit into one. John River easily so I knew that at the moment is just been published being squeezed into the thriller genre but with caveats so yes. There's a thriller element it's over three hours. Someone is short of the beginning in a school. It goes into lockdown. What happens for three hours? There's an obvious engine driving but a hope alongside that have done different expirations of things that interest me. Are there other stories? Taking place only took about three hours element first of all is literally what it says on the cover three hours. Yeah there's there's not messing about it starts off with the shooting an and the lose a little bit in flashback and obviously the book does aggressions about about the characters but fundamentally you have set yourself this three hour time period and I wanted to talk about any restrictions of that. I think in a way it's quite liberating in Anita. Some constructors told by many different points of view. Cheveley wanted and I think in order for that cohesive you need something to keep together and I found this timeframe quite useful way of making keeping me on track. We was it could have been all over the place so it was a structure and kind of gave it a. Haitian and I was also interested in exploring time. So there's the kids and teachers in the school and they're trapped in and tom gets very slowly for them whereas writing. It felt very slow coming in the door. It feels like a minute takes forever whereas other people experiencing timeframe differently. Certainly the police. Will you have to try and get everybody out? I'm times getting really fast. And I have the image of San after hourglass with sand going through rather than the modern sense of timing whom I see the time it's wasted so as writing it had these two kind of different times going on and someone what sets me if he warier an analog watches c time differently than digital watch. If Tom going round and round to see how. Percents time repeating. And if you don't you don't get that sense so there's kind of subtle expiration hypothyroid well in a blizzard which I mean there were sort of tolerance to that but also it gives that feeling of Stolnis the feelings stillness on aloneness. You know when is a blizzard and as a young boy with a teenager? And he's on his own and he's lost his so alone because he can't see where he is. He can't find his brother so. I liked that sense of isolation alien nation that you get with the blizzard them visually how everything changes now. All the familiar landmarks the covered. Nothing is exciting posting you in the normal way and it's very disorienting and the physicality of being very cold and I think in the book I look a lot of people feeling physically. It's it's quite an important part of being very cold is one of those physical experiences that happened during the book. This is a boy in a shed. News trying to police sleeves down over his hands which are really cold and they went reach. And there's a small details like that that you feel for him the cold and the dark much adversary three as say this government might be out there somewhere so this story as you said at the beginning of it does it does flit across genres but fundamentally it is it is thrilling strictly thriller so what was obviously. We're not going to talk too much about what happens because we want to give the story away because there are surprises. It goes fundamentally as you've as you've said is basically about a school shooting a siege at schools. And it isn't I mean I think there's a very useful engine that thriller engine to drive a story and that we did not you conduct all sorts of other things is very interested in exploring the experience of two young refugees from Syria. Who are part of this. And and when we look at that back story and how they've got to this place and you know the old one sport copy of Macbeth from Aleppo with him and kind of parallels t what's happening at the school in Bath and how his father saw serious Scotland so there's all sorts of other things going on which away having this very strong engine off three our schools each means I can then explore things are also very interested in frustration. The Burke and that was one of them and I was interested in the politics as interested in world. We live in with trump. And how hate speech seems to be guessing ever worse and the repercussions of that without wanting to write electorate kind of way but showing that three story as to what might happen. We'll look the main huge cast of characters. If you are the main ones in a moment we'll come back to my bath later on. Let's talk about the SCO festival. So map out. The school for is say so. The school is on the coast in sunset and partly. I chose that very important me that it was coastal. There's kids that shelter on the beach under the cliffs and I also wanted woodland and some of that has woodland going right down to the sea so I liked the geography whereas setting it and this is a school happened over time. It was founded in the twenty S. It's a progressive school so it starts off with a small building and other buildings being added and builds kind of doctor through a large woodland. So there's a sense of people being isolated from one another and the woods. Not sure what's going on. Who's lost in their if there's another terrorist words so that that was the kind of geographical Makeup if you like of of the book says a Progressive School. Tell us about the school's ethos schools. Ethos is actually based on on school. That my kids Katie was found in the twenties. And it's this idea that there is no uniform. There's no prize-giving says no prefects. It goes from three years all three two thousand eighteen and it's very small and in fact in the book they use surnames. Bitten in the school is based on. The teachers don't have parties by their first names. Only so it's a very particular kind of school and it has a history of taking in refugees so took in refugees during the Nazis. They sheltered Jewish children from Poland. Took them into the school? They should choose from Sarajevo so assertion type. If you like and I'm sure it's replicated across the Cape. It's one that I knew knew about quite well so I was writing about the school on new and also I will get that range of ages so it goes from very young three to six wellness. So let's talk about some of the the main characters books the third person nation. But it's told from the perspective of various different characters in various different positions relating to the siege going on first of all Matthew Ma whose headmaster who is the character of the guys. He's not giving anything away. Say He gets shocked shopping at the very beginning. Yeah so tell us. Something about him is he. So here's a headmaster who I think is at the point that he's short. He has been wondering what he's done with his life a bit that he's given everything to the school he hasn't got kids of his own and he's become too loves me but the sudden. He's got his favorites. Which is young deputy head and the cheap voice from Syria? He he met when he went to Dunkirk to the refugee camp there so he's a very compassionate man we've quite quite inspiring man and he definitely is this little captain of the ship and when he's short it's really what the others learnt from. This headmaster feel like so the teenagers looking after him in the library. Very conscious that this man that's led them is now probably dying and how they deal with that and I think he's very proud of them. He's not able to speak but she has. A sense of what's going on. Address has tremendous guilt because he knows the reason for this and he realizes that it's something. He played a part in tremendous guilt over that I think affects them horribly through three the siege. And the way that you've you've written his character in his fundamentally a dying man and he's coming in and out of consciousness and imagine in the past and the present at the same time often and the descriptions of his thought processes a brilliant. I thought I really wanted this. I did your consciousness is something that you you take it for granted when you can't quite get it when you feel like you're an island c. In the CS lapping at the shore. You're losing consciousness. And he mustn't you have to keep awake. And I kind of wanted to write about brain injury in a way. That was very immediate for the reader. They're sharing that sort price with the head teacher. Get THROUGH IT. So yeah he was. I cut lots of him. Pared down version of because like to start with. I thought it would be historic. It's it was a lot and I've I've kind of trimmed and so it's kind of salient points. Now tell me more about how to develop them. I was going to ask you about this idea. Later about using you know choosing to use the multiple characters now. I didn't I didn't set out to do that. I set out not knowing story to tell and I tried various people so the headmaster who I liked it wasn't quite sure and then the mother of a teenager who's missing and then the Syrian refugee boy and a teenage girl and and drama teacher. And I loved all of them more but I couldn't pick and then I started looking what we're talking to fight intercut the different voices fee like this. You say it's not from inner voice but it's very much from just over their shoulder and realized that that was actually quite a good way for me challenging way but the way that I tell him complete story. So it's this one event for three hours which is told by various people outside of the school so parents waiting and a police officers as I call it just trying to find out what's going on in governments heads and I quite liked the idea that all these perspectives would somehow form. A complete story is complete is I could make. It gives them more rounded perspective on the characters as well so hanner. Who is the next character. I wanted to talk about the teenage girl. She took the story is told from her perspective at some point. There's also points where there's another boy this hostage we've had. Franco is basically you know we see Hannah through his eyes as well and he can pop top actually expecting Franken he's he's in love with hundred invasive platonic way he kind of does and so you see us through his eyes and brave shares and therefore how cowardly he feels and then he tries very hot not impressive it to be the kind of young man that he should be in her eyes so Hannah is really important but she looks off to the head teacher She's got a single parent. Dad and one of the things that happens is your inciter has a lot of time and it. So Dad's voice talking to her and she realizes as this progresses that they haven't really grown apart tool that even though she's no sixteen seventeen years old dad still justice improvement when it counts and I. She's got a kind of Joie de vivre despite all the horror. That's going on around her. She has this kind of Ayden. Amazing Energy and resilience and encourage in a kind of really unusual word. I think she described herself as courageous and one of the things I like. She's she's in love with this boy could Rayfield user. Who's a refugee? And she liked him but she doesn't think he loves her back and as it transpires he feels the same way in this amazing moment what she realizes and despite everything and gunman literally pushing at the door she has this your boric joy that this boy loves thirty. I want that relationship to be as real as important as any adult relationship in the well rated. I want to talk about if I were onto him ambassador. We're doing the moment. Another one characters are going away from the school Bath Olten who is another one? That you've just alluded to the fact that you you know. You wondered about telling the story from have expected so she is the mother of a Boy. Jamie out the schools who is missing throughout most of the book and also she hears his voice to do it and I still the only way that you can really for me. Get across the relationship close relationships. Modern teenage boy is tough. Shots between them inconsequential chats. And three. That you get his voice in her voice and the kind of love between them. I think is much clearer than her describing it. So they do. She remembers conversations or she almost makes the more. She knows what he'd say. Turn the situation. He teases her which I think that something. The teenage boys teach them quite a lot affectionate way so I wanted to. Although he's lost and missing I wanted him to be very media presence in the book so yeah I think that the kind of normality of their day just suddenly turning on his head is highlighted against normal conversation. This terrible thing that's happening so she's Beth's away from the school letter. Leisure Centre minehead miles away. Which is the place where all the parents of and then eventually survivors. Also the gathering. And so we get to see you know the parents interacting with each other in a terrible situation which is almost reflects you know you see the kids at school and how they behave to each other and the parents reacting to each other and there's this sort of the the sort of changing attitudes between a certain parents children suddenly. They realized that their children to save on the kind of fury that you can feel that someone can be sending a Smiley Emoji because child safe and yours isn't yet I think there's also the sense that they are very separate this terror make some of them very separate from each other and then gradually stopped talking to each other and sometimes very ugly things come so I took about show courage and in lots of the people but in in the summer of the parents that prejudice is in that. Tara means that they are talking about Houston this and saying things that they will never have said if they wanted in this particular situation. And there's a father that really regret sendings tells US liberal school that somehow the school is by being liberals brought this on themselves that people who blame the Refugee Children Muslims..

let's see what else big NBA guys so like I said we'll discuss many different things with Paul Klee coming up in the next segment our number three cool think Sean Keebler is going to join us hi he is with the avalanche war years this is a hockey team that is made up of what a wounded veterans and things like that and they're doing a lot of cool stuff and the community they have a big golf tournament coming up and we want to us spotlight them so that's coming up in our number three a few of the topics on the docket today if you thought that maybe be Air Force should be interested or might be going to the American athletic conference I you can pretty much forget that also drew walk once more money which is whole areas so we'll get into that a little bit later but of course in a in a very interesting discussion about Jersey usage we had this off air JP from ninety one cake FM our inter Michael wheels and myself were all engrossed in a conversation or were in an engrossing conversation whatever way you want to put it about jerseys and what is the etiquette what how do you behave like comes the jerseys if they get traded are they done do not wear it anymore well if they commit some off field or off court transgression do they go away do you have some weird hang up about getting athletes jerseys or younger than you raise my hand on that one so we'll discuss that a little bit later as well but we have to start today with the enigma that is the Colorado Rockies so I'm yesterday obviously we talked a lot about the nineteen did too curb stomping that they dealt with at the hands of the San Francisco Giants now I hear anything about how hot the giants are right now all right they're going to trade their two best pitchers and Baumgartner and will Smith by July thirty first they don't care how hot they are they're trading anyone that they can get any kind of value of from so I don't want to hear it that the giants are playing good baseball but that was perpetuated by some of the more Rockies friendly media types over the course of the day yesterday but they lose nineteen to two with mark has on the mount and the you're just like what the hell and then they call of chi chi and you think I'm not eating and tune in I watched as Sam with the kids like I'm just gonna be fully honest with you right now I was not in on that game last night I know it's my job but if you lose nineteen into any call up chi chi Gonzalez from Albuquerque I'm not going to watch it so I watches them with my kids and then because I'm incapable of spending more than five minutes off a Twitter I'm following the game a little bit on Twitter watching the movie with my boys and I see positive chichi tweets and die turns out chichi pitcher were really well only gave up two runs in five innings not too shabby rocky scored our run and they lose again to that don't tell me they're good San Francisco Giants I'm done I like I time stamp this comment because you'll never hear it again for me I have no words I don't know what to say about this baseball team anymore like it's hard enough to formulate a real informed opinion about baseball teams and I give myself a little bit of credit and I've heard from some people who are friends of the program that go on radio stations in Denver and also come on this show and they say that compared to some of the people up in Denver I will I do do a much better job of discussing baseball but that time is over because I don't know what to say about this team anymore I can not figure them out for the life of me nineteen fifty two they lose during the day and then they lose a two to one pitching tool to pledges kid at night I just I don't know and things are ice cold on the trade front I have hardly any faith that the Rockies will do anything to address there needs on the pitching staff that were obviously not on display last night but now I'm hearing Yankees Astros when it comes to Marcus Stroman I signed ESPN article today that's a Trevor Bauer to the Rockies I thought this is a great idea love this idea and it's like I just made it like the literally this is what they said on ESPN dot com I will I just mention Trevor Bauer because I wanted him to explain the science behind pitching and out to to like he didn't even have a baseball reason or even say that it is something now it wasn't rumors it was these are the traits we like to see but the Trevor Bauer trade had nothing to do with baseball at least not in terms of helping the Rockies chances of making the playoffs or the Indians getting back high level prospects to accelerate the rebuild that seems like it might be coming specially if they lose touch with the twins no it's I would love to see Trevor Bauer discuss pitching at altitude because he's a real cerebral guy and if you they know that like he likes to talk about the physics behind pitching and he's kind of a different cat very much into the science of it and that's the only reason not that this puts the Rockies over the top this is not what makes the Rockies sure playoff team just entertainment value of listening to Trevor Bauer discuss pitching out to to so it has become more more evident unless Jeff pride H. is just plain things extremely close to the vest and I would say that his track record indicates that no it's just a lack of wanting to part with top level prospects so I'm getting less and less optimistic that the Rockies will do anything about anything that's wrong with them I visit the Jews ball theory kind of went out the window last night and I know tonight they might have another OR the next game they play they might have another nineteen run outing or whatever and then I will be back I'm not saying that the Jews balls don't affect the Rockies because they absolutely do when we discuss at length yesterday but I'm I'm done trying to figure out this team I don't know what they're doing so that's what I have for you on the Rockies I literally don't have anything else I yeah I mean this contrast between the two not into games and you think well chichi why not role would chichi am an hour after the game they sent it back down to Albuquerque I'm like he should be the number one stunner on the pitching staff why are they sending Gigi down what happened to chichi why no chi chi so right he can help in the bull pen guy gave up

Now, we have discussed over and over again, how flowers are almost an automatic. And they work even though they're automatic they're expected, and they work every time they try and even at that.

You might think your mom is constantly aware that you're grateful that you're thinking of her, but she may be but nothing replaces actually hearing it. And the moms are special to boot.

They're the biggest strawberries you've ever seen in their dipped in chocolate light chocolate dark chocolate and in their decorated all kinds of things like chocolate chips. Many chocolate chips are Swizzle chopped nuts, and they look handpainted. No two are the same. They look pay. So big you might need a knife and fork to eat them, they go great with champagne too. And are great conversation for people who've never seen him. I'm still stunned at Sheri's berries can get enough of these gigantic strawberries to fulfill the demand, but they do they ship them overnight in packaging that keeps them killed and thus fresh half a dozen arrive in a specially made box to preserve their beauty because each one is essentially a handmade work of art.

"And one last thing. The con film festival begins today in France? No. Last year. There's been a bit of a tete over net flicks see traditionally the people who run or like movie theaters are part of the cinematic art form. You need to allow people to see your film in a cinema. Well, that's something Netflix has never shown much interest. That's David SIMS from the Atlantic magazine. And so this year con announces, okay. No net, Netflix movies in competition. That's right. If you're Netflix movie, you're not allowed to win an award and in response net flicks sort of, you know, went nuclear and pulled everything from the festival. Now, net does not have a ton of incentive to toe the line in France, they got superintendent laws. There will you can't put a movie on a streaming service until three years after its the debut. But back here in the US him says, if the opposite issue movie chains won't work with net Netflix, even if it has a huge hit. That's never going to be an AMC or regal or any kind of big chain like that. Because those chains sort of like the French and the film industry, see Netflix is just sort of a credit to their business. And that means for now you've got two different visions of the future of movies, neither of them backing down or stolen standoff. And just because net flicks films are staying out of Khan doesn't mean it's executives are. Are a standard net. Flicks move is to buy the biggest festival winners and never show them in theaters, just put him on your streaming service. Imagine how that will go over this year on guard. All right.

You can post a job in minutes and manage your candidates from an easy to use dashboard post your next job on the world's number one job site indeed dot com. So voters in West Virginia say they're less concerned with a daily drama and more concerned with things like opioids. Well, let's talk about opioids for a second. Because on the other side of the building from Gina hassles confirmation hearing today executives from five major drug distributors will go in front of congress to face questions on why millions of pills are sweeping towns in West Virginia, as well as around the country. One of the people who will be watching is Rick. Van Warner Rick was a journalist and immediate consultant will. Then he watched his son become addicted to opioids and survive multiple overdoses. Now, he tells his own story in a book pills and needles. The relentless fight to save my son from opioid addiction, Rick. How is your son? First of all, doing pretty well today, but it's day in day out them. Can I ask how it first struck you? How dark this world was that your son was all of a sudden inhabiting well, initially we didn't have any any idea or any real signs that he was experimenting with opioids, but he had got gotten into Oxycontin through the through the middle school and high school, and it wasn't until he didn't come home from school. Well, one day and went missing for a few days that we had any sense of the grips of what he was involved with. Today. This has been going on since he was sixteen years old. So it's almost ten years now we've been through, you know, street corners and and varies. A homelessness, he's been through rehab. Facilities has been in jail. He's relaxed, fourteen times and twice, been resuscitate from death by overdose. Essentially, he has been devastated by the by the Power of opioids which hijacked his brain. Now, we saw this turning point with tobacco companies getting hauled in front of congress back in the nineties, and now you see a hearing. Today's drug executives will likely be asked how in a town of four hundred people in Kentucky. How did nine million pills come into one pharmacy in two years? What are you hoping to hear why I'd love to hear them actually own up to the fact that it was deceptively marketed drug that began with Oxycontin that really ticked off this entire up democ and thanks to the big pharma lobby. There was nothing done about it for many, many years until it. It truly wasn't epidemic in when they finally shut down or started limiting some access to Oxy's in pill form heroin, then it just pushed the problem onto the street were nil and other substances have killed. Even more we're losing over one hundred people per day hundred America's per day die from opioid overdose. What if somebody says to you? Hey, drugmaker save lives. They've put more and more safeguards in place. It's these shoddy doctors and irresponsible customers who take a good product and make a dangerous. Well, if there wasn't the amount of deceptive marketing that went on with this particular drug Oxycontin and similar copycat drugs that came out once that patent was over, then certainly there's a place for pain medication and in in the healthcare system, there's no one. There are certain people that definitely need extreme pain medication. Nobody's saying that they shouldn't have that. What really happened is is there was just a marketing blitz and deceptive marketing blitz that really overnight made these drugs into the household cure all for any type of pain. And if you were at that hearing today, Rick and you had the chance, what would you tell these drug executives? I would tell them that the shame on you for. For allowing for creating this epidemic and then allowing it to flourish by making sure that there was very little done to address it for many, many years. It's only now that that finally the drug companies are being held accountable, and addiction does of course affect families so much. So we do wish the best of your son also to your entire family. Rick fan Warners book just came out this year. It's called on pills and needles, Rick. Thank you for being with us. Thank you. Yesterday in the rose garden. I'm very excited to announce be best lady Melania Trump revamped her policy platform. She unveiled the slogan, be best in a focus on children, physical and emotional wellbeing, opioid abuse. And yes, social media use, and the basic pitch is this, that in a more connected world, it's easier than ever for kids to seek attention outside the home before parents know what their child fall prey to bullying addiction even suicide. But many onlookers were less interested in the policy than they were to see Milania reaction to the guy clapping in the front row that would be President Trump her husband who reimbursed a payment to a porn star that he still claims. He did not have an affair with this just months after Malania gave birth to his son, ABC news, political analyst. Cokie Roberts is here and Cokie. I guess you could call it a United front. You watch these to embrace. What did you see? Well, I saw it was somewhat awkward, but but it is an awkward situation. Was resenting proclamation is my pleasure to cold husband. The state was going to sign it and all of that. So it was kind of awkward situation. But I think the first lady actually had a very good moment yesterday in the rose garden, which was looking quite beautiful and as was she? But the the fact is that she's the class act in the White House these days. She's the person who is kept her council, but just gone around the country learning how to be a first lady and how what she would like to emphasize when children learn positive online behaviors. Early on social media can be used in productive ways. She was very clear that this is something to spend a good deal of time on and now is ready to go public with a set of proposals on a program. I was going to say, okay, she had the option right to stay silence that's certainly an option. And she's deciding in this moment of all moments not to do that. She had the option saints island, but it would have. Not been in the tradition of a first lady. First lady's generally do have a some program that they are ready to push. They understand quite well that they are in a unique position to be able to make a difference. And ladybird Johnson famously said, you have a pulpit as first lady and you have to use it and it's something she taught her successors Laura Bush. I'm told his worked closely with Melania Trump trying to help her navigate these shows think of it. You know, Laura Bush had been first lady of Texas. Barbara Bush had been the wife of the vice president. Hillary Clinton had been first lady of Arkansas is very difficult to come in onto these circumstances. It was hard enough for Michelle Obama who had just had a husband in the Senate for a couple of years to come in having never been in the public eye and and doing anything that is expected of. Of politicians. Wife is a very difficult thing. Okay. That is ABC's Cokie Roberts as we continue to see the first lady press ahead with her initiatives despite several high profile embarrassments.

"It's the closest thing we have had to a Super Tuesday this year congressional primaries in four states, Ohio, North Carolina, Indiana and West. Virginia were crowded. Republican field has attracted the attention of even President Trump and his family president said he is worried that former coal executive Don Blankenship could win the Republican primary. That could be a problem. He says, because he could lose a very winnable seat. MAry Bruce is ABC senior congressional correspondent. She's a stone's throw away from the capitol right now and MAry. Let's start with Don Blankenship. You've spoken to him one on one. Does he want people to know about? You know that the improv the most honest person that ever ran for office what is more damaging for him right now, is it that he is a year and a half out of federal prison, or is it that he refuses to stop saying the word China person? Yeah. Take your pick there. Certainly several things that are pretty controversial about Don Blankenship. And what's so remarkable right now is that you have a Republican Senate candidate is putting his own or. On edge so much. You have Donald Trump, you know, who's known for his own fair amount of controversies on the campaign trail coming out now and essentially with an anti endorsement, urging voters not to support a candidate in his own party. And Don Blankenship is a candidate who is backed President Trump. This is not a Republican is running against the White House. He in fact, has said that he's Trump. He embraces the president's agenda, is vowing to work with him, would be able to do more for him than he's going to be able to do so. But look when you look at his track record yet, there's a lot of questionable things. He spent a year in federal prison after a conviction related to mine safety. Following that twenty ten explosion at one of his minds that killed twenty nine people. He also has been going really hard against the Washington establishment making racial remarks in one of his latest ads about the family of Mitch McConnell about wife, well-kept to Mitch McConnell has created millions of. Jobs for China people while doing so Mitch has gotten rich, in fact, is China family has given him tens of millions of dollars, Mitch, all Republicans deeply concerned because they're afraid that if Blankenship wins the primary, that he will not be able to stand up to democrat, Joe Manchin come November and with just a very narrow one-seat majority in the Senate, that's not a risk that Republicans are willing to take. Let's turn now to ABC deputy political director, maryalice parks, because you and MAry Bruce have gone on road trips together to get a feel, feed these races, several states in play today, which of these other races are sticking out to you a number of reasons. You know, just to get back to that mansion Blankenship race really fast. We have to put that in context. What Mary's getting at is this idea that Republicans want to pick up seats and they think that in some of these red states where they have democratic senators, West Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, those are places where they could increase their Senate majority. They could add Republicans to their bench here in Washington, and that's what they're hoping to do. And that's what they're worried that Blankenship sort of puts at risk, and that's what makes this this voting really interesting as we're looking at all of these red states, four red states for states at all went for Trump, but we're so many Republican for so many Democrats excuse me are on the ballot in November, and they're defending their sort of blew seats in red states. And you've both come back from these trips and you've been like you guys, these voters do not care about Russia. They do not wanna talk about offensive, ethnic comments, Mariela what are the issues driving the conversation? Well, in West Virginia, we really just heard one thing on the minds of voters. Jobs. He's talking about putting coal miners back to work. I'm from, I'm from the coalfields West Virginia. Those are my friends. Those are my family. Let's get them back to work. They wanted to know which politicians would help bring some coal jobs back, but maybe more importantly, any new industry to the state, and it's those pocketbook issues that have really been driving voter conversations in other states as well in Ohio. A lot of talk about healthcare. The Republicans saying that they will roll back a Medicaid expansion, whereas the democratic candidates that are hoping to take the governor's house there, they want to expand Medicare and Medicaid, and even really talking about single payer style systems for Ohio, minimum wage jobs, healthcare, and the last. One I would say a lot of traction guns. In MAry, Bruce for people there with you on the mean streets of DC. Why do today's racist matter nationally? I think it's a thing that you've been hearing in the months and weeks leading up to these primaries and you're gonna keep hearing in the months and weeks to come. It is a gauge temperature. If you will a chance to read how the electorate in a lot of these red states in these Trump districts how the president is doing. I mean, maryalice and I spent a lot of time together the driving through West Virginia. And what's so interesting is that so many of the voters who we talked to said, you know, party doesn't really matter to them. They wanna politician is going to deliver make your choice matter, vote for politics, not whether it's a an. So you have this opportunity where you know in some cases, some Democrats may have an opportunity to to pull ahead you're, even though you have these deep red states are voters going to be looking at what the Trump agenda is look at what the White House is doing. So far what the president has and has not accomplished and they're going to be. Off of that record. And how are these candidates running compared to the president or running away from the president? Of course what members they are in the capital care about are the numbers who's going to have the most seats in November. The other big number here, how many times I could manage to say that word, MAry that is ABC senior congressional correspondent MAry, Bruce ABC deputy political director, maryalice parks. Thank you both. Take you. Thank you. And you can catch live streaming coverage of all that primary action tonight.

I'm Brad milkey. We start here in just a second start here is brought to you by indeed dot com. Post your next job opening on the world's number one job site. Hey, a lot of news coming at you this morning. Let's get you up to speed and dig a little deeper. It was about seven months ago that Ronan Farrow published a landmark article in the New Yorker magazine with allegations of sexual harassment and assault by Harvey Weinstein. One of his accusers going to police secretly recording her confrontation with Weinstein, but no charges were ever filed allegations that he continues to deny at the time. Few people took a more aggressive stance against Weinstein, the new York Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman. We've never seen anything as despicable as what we seen here. The state's top prosecutor said his team was investigating Weinstein, aunt investigating cops and prosecutors for how they handled complaints Snyder. Men eventually filed a civil lawsuit against Weinstein to help compensate. His accusers will last night months later Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer published a new piece for the New Yorker this time with allegations from several women that they were salted by Eric Schneiderman. Some New York politicians had heard the story was coming, but they did not know how bad these allegations would be less than three hours after this article was posted online, but top law enforcement figure in New York state is out the course had swelled in Snyder. Men had announced that he will resign today. ABC's, Aaron Katersky covers law enforcement here in New York. He joins me now an errant first of all, can you just walk us through these allegations a little bit. The allegations involve four women. Two of them came forward to the New Yorker anonymously, but to others, use their names, their girlfriends have Eric, Schneiderman, and Brad, they all tell remarkably similar stories. They say that Eric Schneiderman usually in bed and usually after drinking hit them, their allegations of sexual violence are denied by Eric Schneiderman. He says he did not commit assault. He did not engage in nonconsensual sexual relations. He did acknowledge though to role playing during intimate encounters and Aaron, what is the deal. With that denial? Because Schneiderman says, I've never assaulted anyone, but he does not really describe what he means by that. And then the nonconsensual sex thing. I mean, that is not necessarily what these women are accusing him of and at no time did any of these women go to the police. Although they did tell the New Yorker that they later sought medical attention. The women seem to be suggesting assault, even if that's not the exact word they used. And Schneiderman was very careful to say he did not commit a crime here, but he did aknowledge that there was some kind of role playing. So it was a very careful statement. But then just a couple of hours later came that second statement saying that it was just going to be untenable for him to continue. Even though these allegations had nothing to do with his professional life, his running of the office, it was pretty clear bread that he was not going to be able to be the attorney general much longer the democratic governor Andrew Cuomo called for his resignation. So to democratic senator Kirsten. LeBron and the pieces were lining up against Schneiderman almost from the moment. The article was published. And Aaron, Eric Schneiderman might not be a household name, but there are few people who have more visibly praised, the metoo movement and who have publicly ridiculed, President Trump mean, does his entire platform. Everything he has stood for. Does that all go down right now? It'll be up to the New York legislature to now install on an interim basis, a new attorney general. We'll see if that work continues. There are a lot of Democrats who agree with Eric Schneiderman sentiments when it comes to President Trump. He was the attorney general for just this one state, but did gain notoriety because he was a constant thorn in the president side. Is it in Trump. I'll see you in court headed investigated Trump university. He investigated Trump family charities, and through court filings. He was an opponent of number of the president's policies ranging from immigration to the environment, the implications far and wide. But I want to go back to these women. One of them is Michelle manning bearish. She did go on the record. She says Schneiderman would slap her without her consent during sex. And then also outlines a frightening scene where they're fully clothed drinking. And when he slaps her hard enough to knock her over and then begins choking her. She went on Twitter last night and said, after the most difficult month of my life, I spoke up for my daughter and all women. I could not remain silent.
