Cal, Perry is covering the situation for MSNBC tonight on the streets of Louisville and he will join us in a moment what happened to Brianna Taylor during the police raid of her Louisville apartment that left her dead. From police bullet. was enough to get one of the officers involved fired three months ago. It was enough to force the city of Louisville to agreed last week to pay a settlement of twelve million dollars to Brianna Taylor family for the city agrees was the wrongful death of Brianna Taylor. But it was not enough to bring criminal charges against the two officers who shot Brianna Taylor according to Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron who today revealed the findings of a grand jury but was guided in those findings by the Attorney General. What happened when police fired their guns? That night is what happens most of the time when police fire their guns in the line of duty? Their target most police bullets miss their targets most of the time. And sometimes, that's a good thing. And sometimes that's a tragic thing. In this case, it was actually both the police were aiming at whoever fired a gun at them when they burst through the apartment door in the middle of the night bjarne tellers boyfriend says, they didn't identify themselves as police officers in the dark. He grabbed his gun and fired his bullet hit and wounded officer. Jonathan Mattingly when Mattingly Officer Miles Cosgrove fired in the direction of that gunshot they missed. Kenneth Walker they fired twenty two bullets between them. Between the two of them. And they missed their target, every one of those bullets, their target. But six of those bullets hit Brianna Taylor. One of the bullets fired by officer. Cosgrove was the shot that killed her according to an FBI crime climb crime lab analysis made public by Kentucky's Attorney General today everything about the police work I just described to. You was judged to be wrong by the city of Louisville and that is why the city settled the wrongful death lawsuit brought by Brianna tell his family last week for twelve million dollars the city of Louisville, and that settlement also promised police reforms to Bernardo tellers family. That is a formal legal statement by the city of Louisville. The killing Ron Taylor was wrong but was it criminal? That was the question for the jury. We don't know what evidence was presented to the grand jury. As of today, we only know that the grand jury did not find a crime in the killing of Brianna Taylor, but they did find criminal conduct at the scene by a third officer. The best description I've heard of what officer Brett Hankinson did. Is On the New York Times podcast daily which describes what he did after he ran out of the apartment building and was actually out in the parking lot outside of Briana Taylor's apartment. and. Keep begins blindly firing through Brianna window and her patio door both of which covered with blinds so he had no way of seeing inside The bullets from bread hang concerns gone. We believe are the ones that ripped not just through parliament but also through one of the apartments that was in the back where a young woman who was pregnant and her five year old child were asleep in separate bedrooms. And he got fired for that. And those were the shots that when they missed their target. That was a good thing. A very good thing because they didn't hit anyone ten police bullets fired into an apartment building where they could have killed a five-year-old child ten police bullets that could have kill bet, Charles pregnant mother, and those ten police bullets luckily missed everyone. At that apartment building today a grand jury in Louisville, decided that those ten police bullets were criminal. The grand jury charged Officer Hampton with the felony of Wanton Endangerment Kentucky Law says a person's guilty of wanton endangerment when circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life he wantonly engages in conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another person and that according to the Kentucky Attorney General and the grand jury impaneled is the only crime was committed when thirty two police bullets were fired. After Lou police broke into Brianna tellers apartment in the middle of the night.

"Facebook YouTube Twitter have agreed with big advertisers on first steps to rein in harmful content online. This after social media platforms were boycotted by advertisers who said the companies were tolerating hate speech, and they didn't want their ad showing up next to it. The agreement three months after Facebook was first hit with that boycott, advertisers complaining for years that the big social media platforms did too little to prevent ads from appearing alongside everything from hate speech to fake news and other harmful content. Deal, announced this morning by the World Federation of Advertisers, calls for common definitions to be adopted for forms of harmful content, and the social media giants would adopt uniform reporting standards.

CDC reverses statement on airborne transmission of coronavirus, says draft accidentally published
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention removed language on Monday from its website that said, the coronavirus spreads via airborne transmission. It's the latest example, the agency backtracking from its own guidance. The agency says the guidance that went up on Friday and largely went without notice until Sunday should not have been posted because it was an early draft they hadn't been approved evidence that the virus floats in the air has. been mounting for months with an increasingly loud chorus of Aerosol Biologists pointing to super spreading events in choirs at churches on buses in bars, and another poorly ventilated spaces. They cheered when the CDC seem to join them in green the coronavirus airborne although CDC officials maintain Fridays post was a mistake Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill are incredulous and promised subpoenas an investigation to figure out what's really going on behind the scenes. This change on the website on Monday is the third time that trump's CDC has posted significant coronavirus guidance only to quickly reverse stance. It's also the latest disorienting turn in a significant scientific debate with enormous public consequences for how we returned to schools and offices the debate over whether the extreme infectiousness tenacity of the virus is due to its ability to spread well over six feet especially indoors and small particles that result from talking shouting singing you're just breathing many experts outside the agency say the pathogen can waft over considerably longer distances than six feet to be inhaled into our respiratory systems especially, if we're indoors and air flow conditions or stagnant. What's clear from such cases is that while the virus Shirley spreads slowly in households among family members, it also spreads rapidly at indoor events. The bring lots of folks together. Meanwhile against that backdrop, an NIH press staffer is being pushed out after being exposed as a secret anti. Mask Blogger, William crews, a public affairs specialist at the National Institute. Of Allergy, and Infectious Diseases told officials that he will retire after the daily beast revealed yesterday that he's the managing editor of the far right website red state were under the pseudonym strife. He is ridiculed the government's activity in response to the coronavirus outbreak a job that he does from the inside. It seems based on time that things were posted that he was doing a lot of this writing during work hours the daily beast reports that cruise under his pending called Tony, Ouchi, his boss, a quote mask Nazi and implied that quote government is responsible for the pandemic response should be. executed. Articles include one calling the Democratic governor of Nevada. A mask fetishists after trump finance would hold an indoor rally in defiance of that state's covid restrictions. And the White House has also again move to shake up the personnel office at the Department of Health and Human Services. After a series of IMBROGLIOS, the trump administration yesterday removed its top two liaisons between the White House and the Health Department Emily Newman and her deputy. Catherine GRANATO will be shifted work fulltime at the Voice of America. Newman already has spent more than three months detailed to the global media agency as its chief of staff which politico reports has meant that Grenada who was literally an undergraduate at the University of Michigan this Spring and is in her early twenties has been in charge of the entire health departments personnel policy amid pandemic that has killed more than two hundred thousand. Americans. In Reminder, the personnel is policy. There are new indications that America cannot fix. It's ninety five facemask shortage, and we have a story today that sites several experts agreeing that the trump administration's mismanagement and incompetence are the major reasons why? And the numbers themselves are still really bad a third of states or seeing new case numbers that are at least seventy, five percent of their peak infection numbers. The most recent ten thousand American deaths were added in just the last nine days three fewer days than the ten thousand deaths that preceded those. On a positive note, fewer of those infected with the virus or dying than earlier in the pandemic, and that's great news. But the ongoing addition of new cases means an ongoing edition of new deaths and cases keeping at it.
With a New Sleep-Aid Drink, Pepsi Tackles Coronasomnia
"Americans are getting far less sleep than we ever have. We were already a nation of insomniacs before covid nineteen created so much chaos. Now, apparently, even fewer of us are getting enough shut eye. So help is coming from a highly unusual source pepsico. That's right. One of the nation's biggest caffeine purveyors now wants to help us get to sleep last week. Pepsi introduced a new bedtime drink intended to provide some. Relief called drift. Well, it's a blackberry lavender drank contains two chemicals said to be relaxing magnesium and an amino acid called L. CNN. Pepsi will begin selling drift well online at the end of the year and in stores and twenty, twenty one but you better start saving your pennies now. So called functional drinks, those containing vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other supplements cost a lot more than your average soda when drift well hits the market, a ten pack of the seven and a half ounce cans will set you back eighteen bucks. Pepsi says it began developing drift well, last year after an employee up the idea during an internal pitch competition no reports on whether that employees can't sleep. So drift well predates the corona virus, but it's release is well-timed with what sleep specialists now say is an epidemic of insomnia. The draft accompanying the pandemic is so widespread that some specialists are calling pandemic do sleeplessness Coronas Omnia the Washington. Post reports insomnia has long been a plague on our lives prior to the pandemic ten to fifteen percent of Americans suffered from chronic insomnia according to the. Post that's the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep at least three nights a week for three months or more well now, those numbers are even higher although studies aren't yet conclusive on just how much higher they are but consider this prescriptions for sleep AIDS jumped fifteen percent from mid February to mid March according to data from express scripts reported by the Post and of course, his problem surge. So to do the markets for solutions, the market for sleep AIDS, is currently worth a billion dollars in growing quickly according to data provided by Pepsi. And why shouldn't the soda giant get a piece of that? Indeed as we've reported here before Pepsi has been diversifying for many years forging a healthier and more profitable path forward soda consumption declines as CNN noted in twenty-six. Pepsi Acquired Kabukicho Maker Kavita two years. Later it bought Health Warrior, a maker of plant based energy bars, and it has added protein powders to some of its line of gatorade energy drinks. Not, to be outdone, rival coke is also bought a combined shoemaker. It's lines of bottled water and sparkling waters are doing well to cocoa also has acquired honest tea and it has long been the owner of Zico, a brand of coconut water but so far coke products can only keep you awake not help you slumber depending on how well drift well does though a sleep inducing beverage from coke probably won't be far behind in back the need for a sleep aid soda. Might just be keeping. The are indeed people coke. Up at, night.

Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown
"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families. Alison despite everything. Shana Tova.
Mexico Records The Highest Number Of Health Care Worker Deaths From COVID-19
"Taken a heavy toll on health care workers around the world. Amnesty International reports that Mexico has recorded the highest number of health care worker deaths from the Corona virus. 1400. NPR's carry con reports on how that country came to lead the world in this grim statistic. It's a regular scene in the courtyard of the sea Glowing, you know, medical complex in Mexico City. Dozens of the public hospital staff break into applause to encourage patients struggling with covert and honor. Those who died and there are many. Mexico now ranks fourth in the world and deaths from the virus and of the nearly 700,000 infected. One in seven has worked at a hospital or clinic. Like an angel Gutierrez, a pediatric nurse, the sick element, you know, hospital. He first felt covert symptoms back in July, I I felt really bad. My whole body heard I had a terrible headache. And then I infected my wife and two girls, he says. As his two weeks of paid sick leave was running out. He was tested a second time again Positive, but five days later, he was ordered back on the job. I guess we can still infect others at that point, says Gutierrez. But he says by then his symptoms weren't that bad. Two months later, though, he still have a cough. There are many reasons why so many health professionals in Mexico are getting sick and dying. Lack of quality protective equipment long work weeks that extend exposure to high viral loads, and Mexico quickly hired tens of thousands of professionals to boost staffing. Critics say they haven't gotten proper training. Sofia Ramirez of the nonprofit Mexicans against Corruption says in the early days of the pandemic, healthcare workers were dying at rates five times higher than in the US If we don't take care of her health personnel, I'm not sure how they're going to take care of Oliver. The numbers have improved somewhat in recent weeks. But health care workers still account for nearly 16% of all infections in the country. This month, Dr Theresa at the end, head of the Pan American Health organization made an urgent plea. Countries must ensure that have workers can do their job safely. Carlos Eduardo Perez Palma, a radiologist couldn't agree more He says he spends at least $1500 on protection equipment for himself. Goggles, masks face shield every three months. He works at two of the biggest public hospitals in Mexico City. Paris also leads a group of health care workers fighting for workplace protections. Thor, it is like to call us heroes. But in practice, they sure don't eat of the heroes. Mexican authorities insist their covert protocols are up to international standards, and they dispute that the country ranks first in the world for covert deaths among health care workers. In a briefing, the government's lead epidemiologist Jose Luis Alla, Mia, said it's unfair to make this claim because, he asserted Not all countries report deaths among medical staff and fed among men whose government eat five years. Salome is a data show healthcare workers actually don't get a sick or dyas frequently from Cove. It has the general population. But his data may be misleading because of Mexico's low rate of testing. Mexicans are generally tested on Lee after their hospitalized with serious symptoms, but healthcare workers are supposed to get tested as soon as they feel sick. Mexico's Health Ministry declined to respond to NPR's questions and interview requests. Doctor

A Million Mortgage Borrowers Fall Through Safety Net
"Early on in the pandemic Congress set up a program to protect homeowners with mortgages from losing their homes. But about a million borrowers have fallen through the safety net missed payments and late fees or putting them at greater risk, and that's further heightening fears of an eviction and foreclosure crisis with more on why so many borrowers have fallen behind on their mortgages despite this relief program, we're joined by our reporter Andrew Ackerman Andrew. Thanks for joining us. Hi, Charlie. Thanks for having me Andrew. I, tell us how this program known as forbearance works. It's unique to this crisis forbearance in the past has been used very narrowly for hurricanes or very regional Zaslov this time it's being used to keep as many people nationally in their homes as possible who are harmed rather virus and it just means you can skip up to a year of payments on your mortgage. And then make them up later. Somehow there's a little bit of a complication because it it applies to all federally guaranteed loans which are most of the market Fannie Freddie or fha backed loans. There is a market for private loans or loans aren't backed by the federal government, and some of those lenders are offering forbearance and others aren't, but for most of the market people can get this. Okay. So when we talk about one million homeowners falling through the cracks, what exactly does that mean that means is that there are a million people who have for whatever reason stopped paying their mortgage their at least thirty days behind or delinquent, and they are not in a forbearance plan. This includes both borrowers with Fannie and Freddie loan as well as people who have a private loan alone from a portfolio loan with a bank or something you know securitise in the private markets will don't. They know about the forbearance program are they scared to participate what exactly is going on here? That's a good question and I think the data's kind of murky but the from talking to lenders, some consumers, some counselors, the picture that we have is that a lot of people don't understand what forbearance means so they don't. Really know what their options are. The other thing is that early on especially early on and still somewhat today the messaging from the lenders was you can take a forbearance, but you're GONNA have to pay all of your mis- payments in one lump sum at the end of the forbearance, and that's really scared people that the scripts that the mortgage companies go through with people on the phone have changed significantly and there's a lot more outreach and education efforts that some of the lenders are trying the consumer groups in some lenders. Say It doesn't go far enough. They'd like better marketing but those are the two factors. There's uncertainty or it's an unknown thing and there's this fear that people have to pay everything back at once and that's just not feasible for most people. Why don't you describe for us the process of trying to obtain forbearance how hard is it? It shouldn't be that hard. There's no documentation requirements. You Literally Call Your Service and you say you can't pay and you WANNA forbearance and they're supposed to the the law, the a rescue bill from March called Cares Act. It says that people are entitled to up to a year. It's says six months that can be renewed for another six months. You have to ask for it. A lot of the lenders have been offering customers short of six months at a time they've been doing three-month for. That can be extended another three months and then twice more beyond the initial six months. Just kind of depends on the lenders it's supposed to be really easy to get. It's still confusing even the we've talked to people who got the forbearance and they were also getting letters from their lender saying that they were at risk of foreclosure because they've missed all these payments and so you get these contradictory messages from your from your lender those lenders are saying hey. Just ignore these letters these contradictory letters we were required, send them by state or federal law, and just know that you've got a forbearance but we still talk to people who said that kept them up at night. Well, I was wondering, for instance, people were jumping through hoops trying to find information about forbearance on the telephone well that he has also been a significant issue if. You talk to counselors and some of the consumers we talked to they would say that I mean they describe this kind of bureaucratic nightmare to be honest everything has happened kind of quickly if you talk to the lenders, they say they're moving to kind of implement this forbearance plan on a scale that's never been envisioned for forbearance before. So they're hiring people to take calls their. End Result is at least initially, the times were significant. People were waiting a long time to get someone on the phone when they did get people on the phone calls might be dropped or they'd be sent to voicemail at the servicer and then they wouldn't hear back. So you have to kind of call the main number again, unfortunately, a lot of the servicers that the way. They're set up you can't just call one representative at the servicer. So you just of are dealing with somebody different every time they're following a script. So what they can say can be kind of very tightly controlled, and if it's with jargon people who aren't very skater even people who are sophisticated and don't know a lot about the mortgage market, you know it can be. It can be very confusing. These terms are not it's not intuitive. Are there a significant number of borrowers who've been in forbearance but of defaulted? Anyway that's the peculiar thing. There are significant numbers are what I would I think it's fair characterizes significant. There's about two hundred, fifty thousand people who were in forbearance at one point since the pandemic there now, no longer in forbearance and. They. are still past due on their loan and it begs the question. We don't know why that's the case. I haven't been able to find someone situated like that. But that's what the data shows and we we talked to people who had experience during the last crisis in two thousand eight and there were always people who just the lenders couldn't reach out to you know they. Knew, they were behind, they thought they were in trouble, and so they docked there servicer at every turn and it's speculative. But people think that that's that's this population kind of fits into that camp and so there are some efforts to reach out to those people. I would also say that two hundred fifty thousand is relatively small. There's fifty three million mortgages in this country Million people have been on forbearance at some point since the crisis started were down, it's under four million. Now, most of the people who've exited forbearance are either performing on their mortgage or they have paid off their loan. So it's an alarming number. It's relatively small and the whole universe and the whole mortgage universe. But there is also a concern that as people kinda hit the six month period who still need help that the number would increase because they won't know they actually have to request the extension, the additional six months. What are the next steps to watch for in this forbearance program? What's on the horizon forbearance figures overall spiked In April, May I believe June and they've steadily declined since the summer or late summer and what will be interesting to watch whether or not that trend continues or you see more people who need help, and probably if you see that, you'll see more people kind of falling through the cracks here where they don't know how to get help that sort of based on macroeconomic trends. Major companies are laying people off tens of thousands of people, and that's I think the Big Question Mark Wall Street Journal reporter Andrew, Ackerman. Thanks a lot Andrew. Hey. Thanks for your
Fed Signals Three More Years of Near-Zero Interest Rates
"Fed is certainly looking toward a longer term recovery here even though as fed chair, Jerome Powell noted economic activity has picked up since the second quarter what can you tell us about the Fed's latest projections and the decision to hold rates near Zero until at least twenty twenty three. Sure. So this is a pretty remarkable forecast although not entirely surprising given the Fed's new framework that they announced. Recently, they basically said that they're going to keep rates lower for longer. Now, we know with a little bit more specificity that they see them staying near zero as you said, through twenty, twenty three, which is a. Really Long Time they're basically saying that an anticipated raising interest rates again until the unemployment rate is around four percent and an inflation is back up to two percent, which is a lot longer than than they waited during this past expansion in two thousand fifteen when the Fed raised rates unemployment was around five percent and inflation was just around one point three. So that basically means is they WANNA see the economy further along on the path to recovery almost back to you know to it someone call full hall or certainly wear closer to where it was before the pandemic hit before they start raising interest rates again. What are the projections for the remainder of this year? So they they've actually improved somewhat in they. Now project unemployment will average around seven to eight percent during the last three months of the year that's a bit lower from where they saw it in June when they projected about nine to ten percent So remember the unemployment rate hit a high in April of fourteen point seven and it was down to eight point four percent last month. So that's certainly a little bit better but I think that they are also trying to emphasize that the gains that we're seeing now. Or kind of the easy the low hanging fruit. If you will, you know kind of the quick bounceback that you get just from businesses that were closed reopening again but the risk is increasing that you know certain sectors are going to have a harder time coming back a longer recovery. So Powell has said many times that the Fed will use all the tools at can to support the recovery, which he noted has been uneven for Americans. What actions is the Fed planning to take to build on the steps it's already taken to help support the economic recovery especially on even one. Well it's an important question because heading into this crisis, you know a lot of folks were questioning whether the Fed really had enough tools to address a serious downturn and what we've seen so far is that the steps they've taken have been really effective especially the steps that they took in March when there was a lot of financial markets stress, they revamped some emergency credit facilities that they'd use in the last crisis that got. Credit flowing in kind of quality. Some of that volatility rates as we've discussed are very low they're going to stay near zero. They are purchasing making these long term asset purchases of government bonds, securities, and they're going to continue doing that for some some time there a little bit vague today about exactly how long they plan to do that. But that will that will help you know really we heard fed chair Powell say that. That the Fed, the Fed can lend to companies I mentioned another one they're doing they have the mainstream lending program although there hasn't been a lot of a lot of interest in that but they can't just give money directly to people that solely in the purview of Congress and so he reiterated again, we've heard him say this a number of times that what we're experiencing really probably will require more fiscal support more money from the Government to give to people not to just lend to them. But just to give them to help make these improvements that there's only so much. The Fed can really do right in the Fed to stay pretty apolitical here but Powell has noted the impact of the federal stimulus which we know another aid packages currently tied up on Capitol. Hill. But it seems like a pretty clear message that the Fed feels more federal aid is needed. Absolutely. I mean I think that when the economy is bad obviously right now you know there's a public health crisis. It's pretty clear the reasons for that but still to some extent I think we've seen. In past crises historically when things are not going while the Fed tends to get blamed and I'm not saying the federal Powell's comments are politically driven but I think he wants to remind people that that look. Yes. There's only so much. We can do I think there's pressure on the on the Fed there's always pressure on them when the economy is struggling to do more and and I think that smart of him to just remind people that there's another big player in economic policy and that in that if they're concerned enough people on the hill are concern especially about the direction of the economy. Then really they're the ones who also have to play a bigger role. If they want the Fed to do more, they're probably going to do need to do more as well.
Activists, Anna Arnold Hedgeman
"Today we're talking about a trail-blazing political activist and educator. She was the first black woman to be a member of a oral cabinet in New York City and the only woman on the administrative committee for the nineteen sixty three march on Washington. Let's talk about Anna. Arnold. Henchmen. Anna was born in eighteen ninety nine in Marshall Town. Iowa. Her family later moved to a NOCA- where they were the only black family in the community. In Nineteen Eighteen Anna graduated from high school and enrolled in Hamline University. It was there that she heard a lecture by w e boys and was inspired to pursue a career in education. In nineteen twenty two Anna was the first African American to graduate from HER UNIVERSITY After graduation unable to find a teaching job in Saint Paul Public schools because she was black and found a teaching job but historically, black school in Mississippi called Rust College. On her train ride down south to her new job in Mississippi Anna, had her first experience with Jim. Crow segregation laws a train conductor told her that when the train reached Illinois had to sit in the overcrowded colored section and not in the dining car white people sat. Anna spent two years at rust college before turning to Minnesota. Unable to find a teaching job after once again, facing racial discrimination, she switched careers. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and became an executive director of the black. Branch of the Young Women's Christian, association or the YWCA. She continued her executive role for twelve years helping to develop various international programs and education. In nineteen thirty, three Anna married folk musician merit a henchman. In nineteen forty, four Anna was appointed executive director at the F. E. P. C.. The national. Council for a Permanent Fair Employment Practices Committee. She spearheaded the fight against employment discrimination. From nineteen, fifty, four to nineteen fifty eat anna served in the cabinet of Robert F Wagner Junior then New York mayor. She was the first african-american and first female member of a mayoral cabinet. For the next few years she worked in a variety of roles including as a columnist as well as as a public relations consultant. In one thousand, nine, fifty, three Anna spent three months in India as next leader for the State Department. She also unsuccessfully ran for Congress in one thousand, nine, hundred sixty and for New York City Council president in Nineteen. Sixty five. One of Anna's most famous feats was her role in the nineteen, sixty, three march on Washington. We hold these choose to be self-evident. That, all men are created. Was the only woman on the administrative committee working with civil rights leaders, Martin Luther King, junior, Bayard Reston. And Eighth Phillip Randolph. Mobilize people to attend to arrange transportation logistics and to organize food and water for attendees fell on Anna's pleat because King Randolph and the other men she wrote for carrying on all of their regular responsibilities and it was difficult to get them to the meetings. Shortly before the march. Anna was angry when she saw that no women were included as speakers instead randolph was planning to briefly mention some black women activists in his speech although Anna strongly urged for women to be included a speakers on the program her calls were largely dismissed. In the end as a compromise, daisy beats was allowed to speak at the end of the march but her allotted speech time was significantly shorter than all the other male speakers. Anna later captured in her autobiography a moment during the March as she sat in front of the steps of the Lincoln. Memorial. I thought of the one, hundred, eighty, thousand Negro soldiers and the twenty nine thousand black seamen who had moved in at the crucial moment to win the war and save the fragile union she wrote. Most of the two hundred and fifty thousand people present could not know of these men for the history books available to Americans have failed to record their story. In the Nineteen Seventies Anna continued her work as an author and lecturer in the US and abroad. She wrote two books about her life's work. The trumpet of sounds in Nineteen, sixty four and the gift of chaos in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven. Anna was honored for her working race relations by various organizations throughout her life and was awarded honorary doctorate degrees from both Howard and Hamline University's. She also received the Pioneer Woman Award in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three from the New York State Conference on Midlife and older women. Anna died in nineteen ninety she was ninety years old.
Vaccines and the Future of COVID with Epidemiologist Dr. George Rutherford
"This isn't the same rehashed discussion of covert. This is. Well more worth listening to. This is stuff that you need to know. This is medicine we're still practicing. I'm building. Of course, I by friend and Co host zooming in Dr Steven. Tailback he's a quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care, and he continues to fight on the front lines of the covert battle here in California for which we are eternally grateful. Steve. How you doing? Hey Bill. Good to see you. And R various special guest Dr, George Rutherford. He is the internationally lauded head of infectious disease and global epidemiology at the UCSF School of Medicine. He is also UCSF's professor of pediatrics and adjunct. Professor School of Public Health at California Berkeley. I had a chance to print out Georgia's see. It's one hundred, twenty, six pages long with two hundred and twenty one published papers and so many important accolades. So I'm going to read the whole thing to you now. Only. Kidding. Dr Authored although socially distance. Thanks so much for joining real pleasure. So Professor of epidemiology and biostatistics director at the prevention and Public Health Group. What do you do? Well, I'm an academic. So I teach school right I do research and I provide advice. So the mission of anybody in Academic Vinnie academic medical entity is education research, clinical care and public service. So my clinical care is really the clinical practice of public. Health and I advise the City Health Department San Francisco Department of Public Health, the California Department of Health and some of the various health departments around the state on approaches to controlling the Kobe deputy hammock. You did mention that your research is partly funded by CDC. Yes. That's correct. Yeah. Hell is a bit about that and how that affects your work during these crazy days. So I've worked with CDC for decades and most recently. I've been doing predominantly HIV related work in developing countries as part of the Presidential Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief I, have a large competent, very competent research group that basically tries to help governments and occasionally universities but mostly governments CDC missions in developing countries to understand what's going on with their. HIV. Epidemics, how things are working to evaluate progress and to discover new ways to try and stop the spread of HIV and try and. Improve. Clinical outcomes of people who already have HIV. So cases per one million population worldwide is running at about three thousand, five, hundred cases per one million in the US is running at about nineteen thousand, three hundred. So did we screw up or do we have a population that's more difficult to manage? Yes and yes, we have six fold higher numbers of cases than we should have and other countries like India may eventually catch up. I think that the US mister major opportunity early on and that was the problem with not having up tests and having the wrong tests and having tested didn't work and trying to control tests and trying to restrict out tests were being used for whom they are being used. I think they've always been you know a whole myriad lack of policy leadership which the states. have taken over and I think first of all the bay area in which the six county health departments acted in concert to move to a shelter in place ordinance early on on March. Sixteenth, and there is a very good reason for March sixteenth it was the day before Saint Patrick's Day, and then later the state moved in the same direction. So I think California's really been a leader in this. Now, you wouldn't know it from the last two months or three months since mid June under there's a huge wave of new infection a disappointed but I think we still are leaders in this. We showed data today in medicine grand rounds at UCSF that looked at numbers of deaths per hundred cases and in New York ten percent in. San. Francisco, it's zero point, seven percent. So it's less than one percent in San Francisco and the next best in a big city is something I one and a half percent did we screw up as a country? Totally? Did we screw up regionally in the north in northern California I don't think. So we scrub stay somewhat I think we made the reopening little to easy S. Really Hindsight Wealth speak that hindsight just for a second I mean in New York they've had four hundred, forty, five, thousand cases in thirty, three, thousand deaths. So they got a hold of this thing long before we did but we've already exceeded the case we're up to seven, hundred, fifty, thousand cases almost eighty percent more than they've had, and we've had fourteen thousand deaths. Half of what they've had when you say that we as a country may have screwed up, do we have a hold of this thing now and how much of it is that the population is not wearing masks enough especially young people who've decided that they're not as susceptible what New York was bad luck and they had continuous importation from Europe and may have had who? knows. Thousands of cases imported from Europe each one of which starts a new chain of transmission. We in San Francisco we probably at tens coming from Asia and you know the first death care was on February six dot and that was diagnosed retrospectively. Womanhood attended a convention in Las Vegas choose living in Santa, Clara County near San Jose and that convention probably people from China. or at least in the in the hotel that's probably where she got it. If she'd come home and hit a large crowd event at the wrong time with very high levels of virus inter nose and throat and spread it around we could have been just as bad office New York but we weren't and that's really a question of luck. So New York at Bath Block. But guess what we do. This was coming since the thirty first of December. That's when the UBA provincial CDC notified the central Chinese CDC that Oh, by the way, we may have a little problem here the central Chinese CD setup team to Wuhan on December thirty first basically started began an immediate investigation started closed down and drain the whole thing under control. That was the starting Bell I. Mean there was basically two months lost now CDC will say, well, we were having we we developed tests. We did this. We did that. Yeah, that's true. But then the FDA threatened to decertify their laboratory that was producing testing. They produce tests in the hundreds, not in the tens of thousands which was what was needed thousands. Of people came from Europe to New York and it got spread around helped by a couple of super spreader events where people in fact, at one person they affect hundreds of people at the same

"Company launched this week in comcast sort of launched peacock but only comcast customers and a bigger way July. Is there anything we can say about the success or the struggles of these or is just way too soon to now so what's been really interesting covering streaming during the pandemic is that it's been kind of the best of times and the worst time is quote? Charles Dickens? Let's look at the King of all street. Let's look at Netflix. Netflix had its Basque quarter earlier. This year adding sixteen million on the back of Tiger King which was a huge sensation during the beginning of quarantine. We've had this huge row three Disney. Plus they are at about fifty five million global subscribers. Which is only about five million away from their four year projections of sixty to ninety million. But then at the same time you know. We've had things like quickly which had just had a really really rough launched to the point where Jeffrey Katzenberg. The founder of qube has blamed it on pandemic. He spoke to him a couple a couple of months ago. He was saying there might be an opportunity to watch more things at home because the service is more on the go but hey we have more in between moments than ever that is quickly curdled to the point. Where like now? He's blaming it on the pandemic. Now you have new things like HBO. Max and peacock will watch nationally in July. And it's been really interesting to see how they've kind of like jumped into everyone knows that streaming is surging but at the same time there's been this kind of like patients with the opening. I. I've always said that. Creating a streaming services kind of creating many theme park most are owned by corporations that was corporations at the put. A ton of money into the service before it ever open offer something on day one and day one or at least the first couple of months or pretty chaotic and it's been really an execution for everything you now. Disney cross had a really tough launch day and HBO. Max's had some criticisms about being kind of this slurry of contacting someone called it but I think what's going to be interesting. Now is the beginning of these things happening during a time when people need streaming services. But it's also been really interesting to see. Be Services like Netflix promote this growth but also be very cautious and say hey right now is not a really great time and kind of feel like that when this is over we might see a vacuum of people. Leave our service because they signed up because nothing better to do so. It's this kind of cautious jumping into the pool. But I would say right now streaming more so than anything else in Hollywood is absolutely fiving. It's just different for most services that are leading out there. So we're going to have to see. I think it's still too early to tell to give out grades right now. I I still believe that. But it's been so interesting to see how services have really jumped in. And really ultimately how they try to differentiate themselves during this pandemic alone the big context and the saddest part of all. This is one in four Americans in file front employment Tens of millions of people that are losing paychecks in jobs was in livelihoods and how that affects all these media businesses. Something that I think. We're just beginning to see or or barely even seeing but it'll be it'll be a big deal. I I liked your scripts you bring up streaming services as as virtual theme parks and that brings us to Disney The theme park part. Be chloe. Would you be comfortable bringing your family to Disneyworld? When it reopens July. Now I just really. What an and that's just because there's so much uncertainty right now. Uncertainty weighed how things are gonNA whether they're going to spike in the fall. These new hotspots popping up everywhere I have family in Atlanta and in Texas. And they're pretty much back to normal. Believe it or nine either me as extreme here in New York. Still in this lockdown And I have family overseas in Europe and some of them are taking this very seriously so no I just I just don't think that I would at this point especially not also knowing how soon evac scene is. GonNa like Frank. What is Disney? Say to the close of the world so it's not just the decline of the world? It's me the world I mean. I'm a disneyworld annual pass holder and I was lucky enough to talk to Disney CEO. Bob Shape pack who after Disney announced that? They'll be kind of phase reopening of their parks on July eleventh and July Fifteenth in Orlando Florida. Walt Disneyworld I wanted to know I was like what makes this. A safe situation explained to me why me and my family should take whatever disposable income we have right now and go on a trip to Disney and the answer I got was kind of good answer but also left a lot of question about Japex said to me you have to know. We're doing everything in everything possible to open responsibly. And some of those guidelines are you know cast members which are people who work at Disney everywhere s guests have to wear masks at all time They'll be temperature checks they'll be. No fireworks parades because they don't want any crowds. They'll be cash more cashless opportunities. So you don't use There's not transaction of cash and can be kind of a new reservation system that makes you reserve everything upfront. Those are some guidelines at Disney are doing but in those guidelines are flaws like perfect example wearing a mask all the time in ninety five degree weather in central. Florida is going to be really hard to do you. Ask them about that kind of saying that. It's almost going to be kind of like the honor system like hey you know our guest do this so we assume they're going to well. You can't assume anything right now. Like great you're going to check my temperature this this virus. Some people never get a temperature so Disney has always been this place. Escapism and fancy. It's a place. I go a week out of the year to kind of forget that I even by living in this reality and to go there and see you know. Thousands of people wearing masks. Which is the right thing to do is going to remind me wherever I go. Whatever right. I'm on that I'm in the Middle Donna. And I'm in the middle of Disney world doing that pandemic and Disney obviously had to do this because the business has been really crippled since a started but at the same time what makes this an specials. It's magic is escapism. And even Disney's magic can't put a spell over the coronavirus that that's what's most interesting and what about movie theaters and the notion of tenant. Christopher Nolan's film opening in July that could be one of the biggest stories of the next three months in this in this media. Beat it happens but we don't know if it's GonNa happen while what's going to be really interesting about that is just kind of see how it all so like great example tenant. Is this movie from Christopher Nolan? Who is this? Huge sinophile believes in L. doesn't believe in digital? I had a analyst wants to tell me that the only way we'll see tenant go to digital before it goes to theaters if aliens of jocks Christopher Nolan a takeover his mind. That's the only way that'll happen and what's going to be really interesting. Is that Kinda Disneyworld. This place that is full of thousands of people and a theater which may only have like twenty five people in it. Depending on the capacity numbers are in the same exact boat. They're going to have to convince the audience they're going to have to convince consumers that not only. Is it safe to come back to the theaters? But that it's worth your time money effort to do so and it's going to be interesting because we're going to have three big movies this summer. If the schedule holds its can be. Christopher Nolan's tenant Disney's Milan and wonder woman from Warner brothers and it's going to those are big movies and those are movies that people would normally see in drones if there wasn't a pandemic so it's GonNa be interesting to see if the demand the supply and if that's apply altea safe and that's what we're going to have to figure out but the other thing that's GonNa be really interesting is how people are. GonNa Watch these away from me. I think it's GonNa be really interesting to see if we see more..

"All the answers. But this is what we know. This is the best advice on public health officials. Etcetera Etcetera. Unfortunately I think you've also seen some news organizations or media outlets failed to meet the moment and you see that on talk radio with Folks like rush limbaugh Mark Levin says at suggesting for instance that may be the death. Toll is inflated. This is still something to get trump but most prominently. I think many won't be surprised when I say this. You've seen this with Fox News. I that they misinform viewers. They they said that this was a effectively to get trump. You know then they knowledged that. This was a serious thing. Went when trump is acknowledging was a serious issue after he Oval Office address back in March. And they kind of said that you know he has under control trustees got it under control etcetera etcetera. And now as you're looking with a hundred thousand people dead a really staggering death toll. You're seeing that they really don't WanNA cover it anymore. They're looking at for effort any other story to cover other than the tragic loss of one hundred thousand dead Americans you saw last night. When we hit that milestone Fox wasn't one of their top stories was barely a story at all. I watch most of prime time last night. Barely heard it mentioned that you heard mentioned once or twice. Most you've seen it with their pivot to this a Bama Gate conspiracy theory with gone all in on that. It gone whole another story as they don't want to cover this and I think that it's sad to see the most watched Cable News Network. At least we call it in his network but the most watched Cable News Network in America seemingly want to ignore the biggest story that we'd covered in years you know they're not all during the summer paying attention others. Aren't it's for propaganda purposes? It's always confusing or difficult. There's always nuance to this. So yes in some points you know they cover it with seriousness and and there are some who are better than others but you know if even if you look at their supposedly straight news hosts like Martha McCallum last night. She cheese the Primetime host for their straight news program. You know it's the story with Marc McCallum hyper as a down the middle fearless journalist and it took her more than fifty minutes five zero fifty minutes to mention that one hundred thousand Americans died because she saved for her last segment for Berry last over. The news is depressing. People want to be depressed. You know it is depressing but as journalists instead job of news organizations to deliver the news whether it's depressing or not a medicine with the there are a lot of Roy is that important that are not happy stories. This is one of them. Unfortunately in people are interested in you seem you know for instance readership spike across the country. Local newspapers national newspapers. You've seen viewership spike on Cable News. People are interested. They want to know what's going on. And it's a shame that if they're turning to Fox for this information they're not receiving in when they when they hear coverage related to the coronavirus it's usually misinformation. It's the application of the president's conspiracy theories or lies or misinformation. It's frankly extraordinarily depressing at to see this kind of behavior from a network this sort of irresponsible coverage of virus during a public health emergency during an actual pandemic persist all so politicized. I disagree to some extent to with you on that it's not politicize or the New York Times or The Washington Post. It's it's you're seeing pre down the middle coverage it's not it shouldn't be a political story it is is about lives lost. This is about public health. Safety amassed wearing a mask is not a political issue. It's a matter of public health safety. Bright only on Fox really. Do you see this Become a part of the cultural world. Wars where you were. You have these sort of Sorta coverage it's it's really you know. I think most news organizations have been largely responsible covering this isn't a political event. Obviously there's a political factor in it but the hyping of of certain things as part of the cultural world is is really something that's unique to Fox. You know broadly speaking. It still amazes me. The three months ago rush limbaugh was on the radio saying the coronavirus is the common cold folks and he hasn't been shamed out of the Public Square. Now Look I hope rush It gets better soon. He's going through cancer. Treatments is having a very hard time in his life. Ablaze there on the radio every day. Defending trump Today today and tomorrow and every day when he's able to and it just amazes me that there's no accountability for saying something so dangerous and wrong the coronavirus the common cold boy. I really hope people didn't listen to him in February but Oliver. We know they did that. He has millions millions of of of loyal listeners. And you know. They're still listening to him. Talk about the coronavirus. I you know like I said he's been one of those guys who's been suggesting that the death toll is inflated when we know from what we're hearing from public health experts at anything it's undercounted but they're suggesting the opposite is sort of information ripples through the conservative media universe and it ends up with the president who then starts wondering whether the death toll is inflated it all comes out of this basic thing which is reliability of information sources of information and when the president and the leaders of the country are getting bad information. They're bad outcomes. Frankly that's like you can summarize entire store the trump presidency in one sentence. And that's the sentence you know but Brian I. I don't I don't think it's right. Obviously I think it's dishonest and bad but I sort of understand the temptation from someone like Limbaugh to defend the president to spin during a normal political event. Anything normal but if it's a matter of politics I can kind of understand why he spending for the President Right With regard to impeachment. They did some terribly dishonest things. Some really really bad things but you can see. It's a political event. Maybe you can kind of understand that with a public health emergency.

You know what I mean so it's like you kind of have to adjust 'cause. I used to like he would have so many ups and downs and I would be right there with him him going up and going down and I think at some point you're like okay. He has a brain injury.

We'll bag snack. And we decided that that meant any snack that was in a bag. Right. But that was a great recap. Ashley. But we've decided because I was like, well, you know, sometimes you get those like peanut butter crackers sandwiches. Those are technically in like sealed in a bag and actually had a great point that I was trying to say which was a bagged snack is an indeterminate number of items. So it's like if you can tell that they're six that you're getting it's not a bag snack. It's like you got a bag of Cheetos a bag of Lay's chips bag of sour cream and onion chips.

There were some of them that were like okay with that. Yeah. There were others like that's not us because that's that's the real way that it happens. Exactly. There are some women that love to wear makeup in high heels and dresses, there are some women that don't women aren't saying don't make us wear this stuff or like we never wanna wear. It's just like don't expect everyone to like the same stuff. We all like baseball. We should be able to just do the baseball part. Right. Not have to do the other stuff that other stuff. But the is such a good move is that is a really good movie. I hate it. I hate doing this. I don't know. Jay, what do you think? I don't really care. I mean, I do J totally do just mean like, why don't you tell us what you think? In directed by penny. Marshall who is she was she rest in the most piece was such an amazing filmmaker.

Of course, you knew he chose to be condescending woman on international women while while Ashley singing. Really love it sounded like. Had me it sounded like a church, and what if we didn't since we what I think, I know all the words, I'm really proud of you. Thanks. You were one of them. Oh, yeah. That's what I was following dress your baby up as a as drunk, Tom Hanks, Jim Jimmy, Kevin Costner. Kevin. Captain, you also when you were just about to say that you dress your child you put your finger down like the little one I dressed small one like dumbing down there. Okay. I guess we'll go league of their own. Doc. You're right. I think it's I agree. I feel like if I wasn't thinking about it though. I would have just picked sandlot because I really love that movie. If you had to recommend a movie to a friend between a league of their own sandlot, which when which BIC. I feel like a league of their own holds up better. I haven't rewatch it in a while. Is there anything rabble Matic in it? Probably not because women, right? So yeah. You know, what what's say this? It would have sandlot would've moved on. But Benny the jet that benefit for everybody. But maybe maybe he should've. Going great. I also called her hand end of the jet. Middle Middle. name Name is is amber. amber. It's going to be legally on all right and White House for our market. I don't I don't the next ones will be better. We we already picked the topics. It's gonna be great. Okay. So now we have to decide between Mighty Ducks and league their own. We have to decide between. No. He ducks in the league of their own. Oh, my wow. Just tired. I tired. Listen. Mighty Ducks is a fantastic movie. Yeah. That spun several franchises Tim rate was one French. And but like also a team packed the time. Yeah. That now has forgotten where they came from and go by ducks. Yes, doc themselves. Yeah. You heard it here. I yeah. What's happening? I'm just thinking your say motza great film.

So that I'm I've been Katie Nolan, and that has been you're very Cavalieri update. Dude, it great. I'm so excited that was that was incredible have found a cool stick okay here. We are in the final four. Wow. I know. So we've got rocky here. The two matchups we've rocky versus the Mighty Ducks in a league of their own versus sandlot for bracket. It came down to pretty good. Pretty good end. I think it's a great bracket. It's just because you're husband listened to the podcast. Okay. So let's start with rocky versus the Mighty Ducks. Again. I'm no, it's not the it's not filling this out as like. S another thing we talk about all the time. We do these brackets is this like my favorites. Or is this like for the world? Like, oh, you can't. I might love Mighty Ducks. But you can't have them beat rocky. Here's the thing for the world. If you have somebody asked you for movie recommendation, would you recommend rocky the mighty the minded, oh, well, then for the world. That's the better pick. It's just so good. There's so much so much depth. Yeah. Yeah. There's a flame is the first one. Yeah. Okay. Ms wax worth quack quack, quack quack quack. Did it end? They scream like that. Yes. Kelly. There's drama. There's there's a redemption story for coach Bombay the media in general. Yeah. Oh in the old guy was the old guy. I liked him. Was it lar- homes hawn's manage like a dead that guys? How did she get that? Right. Get that. Right. K Dieter died kinda recently. Oh believe that's played haunts on these. So for him. I think we do Mighty Ducks. I'm sorry. I just picked the minded over rocky. I that doesn't feel right, but Mighty Ducks should have won best picture. I don't think that's actually not true. It's patently false. On the other side of the bracket a league of their own versus San lot. I wish there was more female representation in San law. Related to a lot of the characters. But it wasn't. I didn't see me. The only me was Wendy pepper corn. And she was not me. No. She wasn't me at all. She was way too dreamy. Yes. So dreamy. The kissing was weird as a little problematic. I know it's kids. But yeah. Giving him out to mouth. We haven't really talked about a league of their own what we liked about it yet. Well, first of all based on a true story. Did we say that? A fascinating story that I don't think a lot of people knew. Tom Hanks, Madonna. Oh, Rosie O'Donnell Gina Davis. Gina davis. Kevin Costner named one name. I I know Kevin cost. Famously. The way. May we already said it was a movie that was about sports that had a lot of the converse? There were scenes that didn't have men. Yeah. It was fascinating. Also, it was just a good movie. Like, I feel like nowadays we almost ruined a league of their own by marketing it the wrong way. Like, it was just a great movie. It was like rate. Interesting dynamic of these women and the sisters the sister kit kit, you're doing great, and I got this. I thought the relationships in it were incredibly interesting. Yeah. The character arc of Tom Hanks in his relationship with Gina Davis. The relationship of the sisters the relationship of kit, and Rosie O'Donnell and then the one who's really good. Bertha. Is her name Bertha? No, I think it's. No good. The one Marla Marla is it. Yes. Marla? I got there. Eventually, okay. She like my favorite is just looking at her. But not saying the hell trying to read on my getting in. And I just looked fine. Offering me much. They'd be my new thing on top of that. What I thought kind of elevates his movie in a way beyond regular sports movies is that they just wanna play baseball. But they have to do it in a way that makes it palatable to fan..

"But like what a great film, and I would I'm thinking also mostly about two because Mighty Ducks too. Is the bet it's two one three is is the order for me. Okay. But just you know, it's to the international one day. And then it's college three is college. Okay. Yeah juniors. Yeah. I don't even remember a lot about three which one's the one. Where the the catchily the county you because I know I just see it in your. She's the second one I said, which what is the one with? And you knew exactly what I was box of Mighty Ducks. Chilly, the cat Gaffney. Right. Not wrong. So, but the first ones one where they go through the mall of America credible. Amazing. So people forget who was in Mighty Ducks. Kevin costner. That's right. Jesse small it, really? But we're going back. Crazy that I remember that the other day at trivia that is incredibly trivial. It was awesome. So anyway. Mighty mighty next moves on. Sorry. Dodgeball, great film. But again, more of a comedy in. If we're not gonna let Gilmore get through than dodge balls not getting through. I am looking at this bracket and hating it. So we're gonna keep going. Next up. We have cool runnings up against league their own. I just made exactly my failing there. Yeah. And not just because we're ladies. But it's just that like that that was a week corner up there. I really should have been remember the titans be cool runnings. I love cool rinse would have been more different j challenge. But, but that, you know, this brackets are it's it's about the match up at the time. You know, the worst we're doing a disservice. We are not we are servicing appropriately. Yikes. A league of their own. A lotto. We haven't we haven't. I haven't said anything. Nice ability their own. Yep. Okay. Okay. Now, I've got the San lot up against a little giants. Talk about formative these two films for me. Yeah. Equally for the scene were in Santa lot. I saw it in the theaters. That's how old I am this scene in sandlot where they go on the on the ride, and they all puke. I had to leave the theater 'cause I thought I'm one of those people like see puke puke. So I I was like little Katie had eaten a lot of candy and popcorn. And was like, I think I'm gonna be sick. And so I left, and I then I came back. So sandlot was nineteen Ninety-three. You were really little Katie. I was six. Yeah. I was too. I mean, I was only she was was just born. Boy, I would just been I went as an infant my mom birth me at a movie. Right. Like, I feel like sin. Lot has so many good side stories like number born, obviously. And like you say pepper corn is Peifer co-ord-. Yeah. Yeah. I said pepper corn. I was wrong. That's fine. I didn't I wouldn't have attacked. If it was you. Pepper porn. It was me a delicious dressing, but not. What did little giants have little side? Things will make us was in little giants for might meets world. Okay. That's not what. Yeah. It did. I think it was more. Like little giants is more of a sports a traditional sports movie in terms of like the arc like sandlot. Did they I I kind of forget it was the whole point was like getting the ball back. There was never a big game. There was a big game. Wasn't there? I think they played. Well, there is the relationship with his father, right? As a stand of the central. Yeah. And he had the ball the babe was signed. Yeah. And like it was so important in the there's an he hit the home run in. I think whatever that important game was her. And then it was more like a coming of age story for kids read, it was told through the like, we would meet and play baseball on this FIA. But it wasn't about like their season as a team right about like these kids in their lives and it all coming on the field. And I. One of the things. I don't love about saying..

"What who I was like I used to like put lollipops on like, it doesn't matter doesn't in any case. Right. I would I would vote for little giants. I know that we get that. And I think you should to. Oh, well, this what a campaign actually, even for class press. The story line is what so there's there's a here we go. Hold on. And then we'll get actually run down. Let me let me start with. What the I am DVD's misfits form their own opposing team to an elite peewee football team coached by the elite team coaches, brother. So it's kicking and screaming mates bad news bears and came out, of course. But I just want that movie to shout out because it was a under under rated we'll vehicle. Yes. It's a comedy Ashley thing against comedy. Just remember the titans. It was up against cool. Runnings we picked that was a comedy sports movie. Go ahead. Tell us about in forty seconds or lo que Becky O'Shea. Her dad is the guy from Honey, I shrunk the kids marinas. Thank you. And her uncle is a very famous football player, Kevin Costner, Costner better. But yes, Kevin Kevin Costner Kevin Costner's making a football team. Sure. And even though Becky icebox is one of the best players. He doesn't take her because she's a girl. Right. So she's really upset. She gets her. She convinces her dad who knows nothing about football. Rick moranis to start his own football team to compete to be the town's football team. So he is a bunch of scrubs on their team. The whole thing is about how they like come together. Devon Sawa comes in his great quarterback sour. He gets recruited by random whatever Becky goes through this turmoil. She's like do I like him. Do I wouldn't be a girly girl? So he'll like me or should I play football tough. It's yet. At one point during the game, the bad guy on the big team on their essentially like the Cowboys like takes out at Debbie. Okay. And Becky gets pissed down her pompoms. Like, it's great. It's it's a real gym. And then and the end. Yep. There's happiness. Wow. One cohesive football team. Then at the end, there's happiness what will the we live for Jonah pick little giants moves onto the next. I love you so much. I know you don't mean it, but I love you. So SOS happy going. Top twenty nine movies. This is just for. Thank you. You're you're welcome. I really love having Gilmore, but you're right. It's a comedy.

But I should I should a lot. What do we feel unlike team why do we do brackets when I hate them so much you just don't like making decisions, and it's an it's a series of decision then I get judged on. I never get to. I never use the it's my podcast card. I use it all the time. But you use it against me in this situation where it's like, well, you make the call to your podcast is this. I don't know. I like them both Steve dump brackets. We said we weren't gonna I dated. Daymond the leads Armstrong cameo in dodgeball, though. My like now with the the hindsight and also rips horn, everything he does he wanna be named rip torn what I want to be named the current version of a verb. And then the the consequences of. Like, I'm gonna spend the rest of the week thinking about like. Eat full. Or? Run tired. Okay. Run tired. We'll keep working on it. Or? Drink drunk their drinks, drink drink drink term. With your whiskey. I am ready. So okay. May I was gonna say dodgeball only. Because if I have to talk more about one of these movies, I could talk about more. That's that's on us. So that's our fall. Well, we're picking the MU the bracket. Oh, Oh, you know you what? know, what I just realized it's not gonna matter. So because it's up to pick. All right. I'll say. Great Megan harder. Okay. To the other side of the bracket. Now, we have the two seed remember the titans versus the fifteenth seed cool runnings lifts trunks. That's that movie. Right. And then immediately were like don't know. Right. Little IMDB's summation here for you for those who don't remember remember the titans in case you forgot. A true story of a newly appointed African American coach and his high school team on their first season as a racially integrated unit, and then what was the other one cool runnings? Why did he put these two against each other? Steve I think it was an exit when a Jamaican sprinter is disqualified from the Olympic Games he enlists the help of dishonored coach to start the first Jamaican bobsled team. We give up such team. So it's they're they're both true stories and they're both great. I do believe remember the titans sticks a little closer to the truth of the story. Then cool runnings they weren't actually Jamaica. They wasn't egg lucky. They were from Jamaica. I I don't I'm going to be honest. I don't know if they're sorry member. The titans Denzel correctional. Yes. And Kevin and chemical. I know the coaches played by Kevin. I. I he runnings as a kid. I I do I did too. I think remember the titans was like a very poignant movie I felt like moved. And like I learned and then also funds sports stuff yet it. So I personally would vote for remember the tight. You would. Yes. I don't remember them though. You don't forget what give me a pivotal plot moment that happened in the film. The. One of the white guys in one of the black guys kind of bonded, and they were the source of trying to into like get the rest of the team. They were the left side strong side guys you and then one gets in a car accident and gets paralysed sound can't play at sign like his girlfriend at the end. This is Ashley summarizes movies is a bit Steve loves because I'm so bad very bad at it. Like who was very very racist came in like shook the black guys hand, and it was like this big moment. The the the white coach who got, sir. Kevin Costner kept Custer who got replaced by Denzel has the little blonde..

"Is that do you agree? That's your call alternately these. But I would have gone Jerry Maguire why I just feel like, Jerry. Maguire is the better is the better film. Have you seen Bill Durham? Yeah. I love to and both are great. But just I don't know if somebody named boulder it's a town of boulder boulder is a classic. So make sense. I already wrote down in heads Durham if ever ever another kid, I'm gonna name it bowl brave. And I think you shouldn't do that our next Matha? So bolder moves on and I'm sorry. But I'm not it's my podcasts our podcast, but show me the Durham Kate next match-up number four mighty Mighty Ducks versus number thirteen miracle Stephen doing putting the two hockey. Oh, oh, I don't like that. I don't either. But it's ducks. I also matchup. Whoa. Guys, come on. It's loved the movie mirror. Sure. And especially because it was based on a true. So right. So you wouldn't miss out on if you if you didn't have it you would still have that real story. You could watch a documentary about it. I could have right. But I didn't you watched when this with miracle came out that was kind of how I learned about it. That's a shame. I know I didn't grow up in a sports watching household, right? That's true. Much of a TV to watch anything except birds the birds and like paint drying grass growing, right? It was where the things charged. So when I saw this movie of Russia story is incredible. Great. It was great. Yeah. It was really cool. That's how I felt about. What was the movie about the about the hostage crisis? The Ben Affleck directed. Oh, what's it called? It's a Jesus Argo. We smart. Was like, well, this is crazy. Like do. You know that this is this happened. Right. So you don't have to react like that. That's how some people felt about Titanic. So so sorry it Mighty Ducks. Sorry miracle. Great thing that happened. The movie itself wasn't as good as the thing that happened. All right. Well, you gave in so much quicker than I thought you were going to. Well, I. Yeah. I did. I think it just liked it so much because it hit me at a time. When I was just starting to get into hockey was like really obsessed with hockey. Right. Was it was just incredible timing. Yeah. For ninety thank you to the movie for that. Right. But in terms of the broader scale Mighty Ducks, right? Of course. Okay. Next up. We have. Number five major league versus number twelve dodgeball. Wow. Wow. Two very very different movies. But both funny in their own way. Yes. Why did you pause? Because I kind of I don't wanna like get ahead of myself. But there's some of the movies in this list that I might classify as a comedy like more. So than a sports movie. What does that matter it doesn't necessarily accept? It's like if you're using it to like really get down to the nitty gritty like picking between two like you did with like Jerry Maguire's technically agents for sure like Dodgeville, I think is more of a sports movie than your. I think what you're talking about happy. Yeah. But I wouldn't classify like major league a comedy major league is a sports movie..

Pretty sure I don't remember. I don't I'm talking on my ass next at some funky. But stopping. Well played. Eight the aver is the nine. In Jerry, Maguire versus bull Durham, Yikes. Death match in the first round. I'm going to be completely. I know you're gonna pick Jerry Maguire because you've never seen builder. I've seen Jerry Maguire either. What's like, I can I've seen parts have you seen mystery Alaska? Come on. I I know show me the money and yet you had me at Hello short. Do you know the context of any of these things and the brain wins eight pounds K that's at one right? I know no more. I think so I think the or the human headways eight pounds or something I know more from context clues about McGuire than I do about bull Durham, I legitimately have no idea. What it's about is Kevin Costner in that one. He's in all of them. He's an all of the movies in every sportsman thing. Yeah. A fan who has an affair with one. Minor league. Baseball player each season meets up and coming pitcher in the experienced catcher assigned to him the experienced catcher played by one Kevin Costner in the pitcher played by Tim Robbins. It's just such a weird role. Now, hold on. Let me let's talk me through this year. So there's a woman Sarandon Susan Sarandon.
