Warren's Organization Faces Second Test In New Hampshire

"This is not a time to you. Say the lucid. This is a time to step up and when we see a big problem offer a big solution. I shouldn't have to fight for it. I'm not running a race that has been shaped by a bunch of consultants. I'm not offering a bunch of proposals that have been carefully designed not to offend big donors. I pass at stop sign a long time ago. Good morning we're incredible answer but we are just forty eight. Our primary those comments by Senator Elizabeth Warren which appear to be directed at people to judge underscore the frustration that many democratic women you are feeling at the sheer dismissal of Warren and the other women candidates by people who are getting pulled by some voters and yes by much of the media. I mean she does have a point because when you look at. The field of candidates took to the stage in New Hampshire this week. It's really hard to argue that the two strongest candidates representing the moderate and the progressive wings of the Party. You weren't the two women who shared the New York Times endorsement for President which was also weird namely Senators Warrant and eight which are so. Why is it that the female candidates hates who come to the table with experience? Actual plans are not gaining as much traction as their male counterparts. CNN poll leading up to the debate underscores the point all all three women candidates who remain in the Race Elizabeth Warren Amy Klobuchar and Tulsa Gabbard our polling below ten percent among New Hampshire voters. We're now learning from the Boston Globe. WBZ tracking poll. That is the only female candidate who benefited with a three point. Bump from Friday night's debate and that apparent excitement helped her. The campaign raised two point. Five million dollars since the debate. No Word Yet from the Warren campaign of any fundraising updates with New Hampshire almost in the rear view mirror. What does that mean if anything as Democrats headed to more diverse states like Nevada and South Carolina at the end of the month have Democrats writ large decided that they try to woman candidate and and it didn't work and so now it's a man only game or is gender just not a factor in how Democratic voters are choosing their candidate? Joining me now. Is James pendle political reporter for the Boston Globe. Kimberly Atkins MSNBC CONTRIBUTOR and senior Washington correspondent for Wvu are and Beth who's MSNBC senior politics editor the senior politics editor. Thank you guys for being here. James Start with you. It does seem like women are doing well in terms of presenting plans branding themselves. They can do candidates but not doing well in the polls what. What can we read into that here in New Hampshire well clearly right now is on on the upswing after that debate performance when it comes to Elizabeth Warren her fall remember? She had a huge rise. She was leading in Iowa and New Hampshire for about two months in in the fall. It's not like it didn't happen. Her her fall has been confounding. A lot of people want to tie it to the Medicare for all there may be something else going on. What is very interesting to me all week? It's been looking at this question of gender because in New Hampshire more than any other state probably in the country it has a tradition of electing women. The office it was the first state in United States history that had a full female delegation to Washington. Is You know the senior senator from this state. Jeanne Shaheen choose the first woman in American history to serve both as a female as governor Senator and the second is the other senator from the name of Your magazine and so I've been curious where is is gender going to play. I talked to a lot of women. Here who really really want a woman nominee and they were confused about where exactly they should go Warren was not that obvious. Choice in the end this campaign and I think that probably is a factor in if I played this game but it is a factor any any Cobra Shar for example. Clarity Iowa she was clearly the story. She was clearly out of the race because she wasn't Warren. Obviously I do think would be doing a lot better here in Nisa the thinking that a lot of people have this. I'm going to go to cut three just for my producers that this is this is what a lot of women here would hear men talking about women candidates in general. This is our colleague. Donny Deutsch sharking on morning. Joe About warned on Friday. Take it with her. Is it certain. There's a certain strident to her. That do we want to invite her in to our bedrooms in our living rooms every day for four years. I think she has the same issue burning as I don't think it's a gender issue. I think it's a likeability issue and you know I think we have to be careful. I think an amazing woman would be a great antidote to John's point earlier a different definition of strength. If you weld strength the strength but in a different way but I I don't think Elizabeth Warren problem has been that. She's a would the likable thing. Right I don't get it because she actually reminds reminds me of all the other soccer MOMS on ice to soccer mom. She actually seemed quite likable to me. I don't get that but that is the thing that's hung on her. It's very gendered critique because Bernie Sanders and she if you compare them which one is sort of more invite him to dinner. I don't know but I'm not sure that she loses that fight but she is losing the fight for the to being the lead in the progressive wing the messaging of it is hurting her. Absolutely if you talk to Democrats they say that they like Elizabeth Warren. She's not unlikable. That doesn't bear out when you speak to voters and it doesn't bear out in the police now. Some of them say well. I like her a lot. I'm not sure she's my first choice. That's a different things. Yeah that's not the thing that's being hung on her. What is happening is just you have a structured race and she'd have to pull from other people and so far the other candidates that she might pull from someone like Joe Biden is getting those votes if they are being pulled their pulled? Oh by people to judge I think that is the known factor that that wasn't anticipated. I think right now we also have to remember. I know we talked about this. A Lot. More here in New Hampshire Iowa New Hampshire or a tiny part of the electorate it right now the name of the game. It's having enough money to stay in this for the next several contests a month from now. This race will look entirely different as it moves onto Nevada and South Carolina Super Tuesday. And so. That's what the Amy Klobuchar fundraising number was so important. If she can stay in it. Yeah you don't know what comes after Biden can only go up. Big Question is what happens to warns. Yeah absolutely and do they have to keep going supposed to Super Tuesday. Has Like one hundred thousand states in California. Don't Walsh Pals at my pal wrote a piece in the nation about the ratio worn and she writes the following from the moment cable network switched from her caucus night. Rally speech to Biden's Warren has been virtually erased as the fight for first replace continues into Thursday. I've watched Cable News and Cable News Channels mentioned Warren only in passing if at all MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell had been one exception featuring during an interview with Warren Wednesday night and Thursday. She was hosted by Chris. So there is a meeting it back to the other side of that. Media factor is advertising. So whenever I go to a city you you know in these elections. I watch a lot of local news and there are a lot of advertising in from Tulsi Gabbard. Who all over TV? I didn't see a lot of advertising Elizabeth Warren. So she's not getting the free we media out of cable news coverage and she's not getting paid media a lot of it at least from what I saw in New Hampshire so far. So is this a media problem as much as it is messaging problem. You know what I think about when I'm here in New Hampshire is in two thousand eight. When Barack Obama came out of Iowa with this huge head of steam and he seemed to be steamrollering to the nomination? We've got to New Hampshire. They headed debate. That was what Barack Obama said to Hillary. Clinton you're likable enough. Hillary speaking of likeable and two days later she shocked everyone including including the media and beat him in New Hampshire and set off that cage match to the very end with Iraq Obama. was you know one for the history books. So the whole issue of women and likeability has played out here in very very prominent ways. And we're seeing at once again in New Hampshire on the question that Johnny brought up that you addressed. So here's the thing. Is it an issue of ability polity. We're just an issue in New Hampshire and everywhere else of people being terrified to nominate the wrong candidate. Everyone wants to be president trump. They're looking at this field. They're not sure who the right candidate is do that. That's why we've seen this kind of muddled factor and Elizabeth Warren probably there is a fear that because Hillary Clinton Twenty sixteen did not beat president trump even though everybody expected affected her to was it. A factor of gender and is it wrong is not the best idea to a nominate a woman. That's a woman did not beat him last time. I think that is one of those things that people. We're trying to consider when you're looking at this large field. Everyone's being a pundit New Hampshire two thousand eight race because that was also raised a talked about how you lose being able to be how you win because remember on the one hand for Hillary Clinton. She had that moment where she teared up the day before Mary she's likable again. Sort of acting. Additionally Women Leeway but Barack Doc Obama's yes we can speech was his losing speech in New Hampshire it ended up rocketing him forward because yes we can then became the defacto theme of the campaign so it it could be that one of the people who is an also ran in New Hampshire. Can you almost lose to win. That's right that's saying I mean the role that Particularly the role that women play in the state and the crying thing from Hillary was about gender was about how do everyday as a woman how you get up as a woman. It was a huge moment for her obviously led to that major comeback. One thing. That's interesting about these comebacks. Is that this with Warren is set up for one. She set up for when here but she's not even talking about that and she's not out there. Earning it and nor is by the way Joe Biden right out there earning at the same time we talk about Joe Biden because he's an in an awkward position where he's he's pulling you the third or fourth and he really needs to win but I want to get to before he could tell you. WanNa talk to amy because she you know the audience that we had that was in studio for us or in Studio and what we call or studio the other part of this building that was watching it was pretty unanimous that she had the best debate does she had the strongest performance.

Camila Cabello apologizes for racist Tumblr posts from 2012

"Two days ago a twitter user at motivate fendi posted a string of tweets calling Camila Cabello out for allegedly posting racist content on a tumbler. Ambler Account Oh no. They didn't summed up the tweet. Thread saying quote motivate fantasy. Found Camilo. Cabezas tumbler page one. Camilla confirmed was hers receipts in the thread and started a thread last night. That includes a million anti-black re blogs xenophobic re blogs referring to the Asian language as Ching Tong Language and going for the hat trick a re blog. Making light of Rana's assault at the hands of Chris Brown and quote. I personally looked through the entire thread and let me just say. I don't know if I've ever seen so many racist memes in one place. It was like reading a toxic four Chan threat or something. The meme that Camille allegedly reposted making fun of Chris. Brown beating Riana is especially vile at motivate. fendi updated the tweet thread adding at the end quote up date. It appears that community deleted Vu attests bell. Luckily I archive all the links in this thread on the way back machine last night. Eight and quote wvu attests bell. I don't know if I'm saying that right. But I guess that was the name of cumulous Account Camilla logged onto twitter last night and while she didn't confirmed the tumbler posts were hers. She did apologize for her past comments in a lengthy apology in the form of a screen shotted image of text now. Technically CABELA's apology wasn't on the IPHONE. Notes APP she clearly road it in like an instagram story but the spirit of the notes up is alive. Live in this apology. So I'm still going to award it with the coveted notes APP apology of the week. Notes APP apology of what we how in a screen shotted image that included a black background with white currier text Camilla road quote when I was younger I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of of and will regret forever. I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language I was deeply the embarrassed I ever used it. I apologize then and I apologize now I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart as much as I wish I could. I can't can't go back in time and change things I said in the past but once you know better you do better and that's all I can do. I'm twenty two now. I'm an adult and I've grown and learned I am conscious and aware of the history and the paint. It carries in a way that I wasn't before those mistakes don't represent the person I am or a prison I've ever been. I only stand Dan and have ever stood for love and inclusivity and my heart has never even then had any chance of hate divisiveness. The truth is I was embarrassingly. Ignorant Unaware I use my platform to speak out about injustice and inequality. And I'll continue doing that. I can't say enough how deeply sorry and ashamed. I feel and I apologize. Today's again from the bottom of my heart and quote even after posting this apology. It still seems like people are pretty upset by Camilla's former posts. A lot of people are saying that regardless of how much she regrets it by age sixteen. You should know that riposting racist content and using the N.. Word Ad Nauseam is unacceptable acceptable.

So it's about the story about this little boy his name is Harry spits FBI e and he had a father another and a father, and they lived there and work in town, and he had this weird disease. And when he has about three he died. I can't remember what did you say is west? But anyway, anybody wants find out that read up on it? And so there's a cemetery there. Right close to town. Right. The end of high street and all the people that lived around its people house all around it. And these people heard an explosion one evening. I don't know what part of the day it was. But they heard an explosion the grab check it out. And they can't find nothing all up around everything they thought it was a gas explosion. And come to find out they go little Harry's grain. And this is a good one. I even talked to somebody that was there when it happened a lot 'cause I write books, and I you know, studied up on everything. Talk to the guy that worked at the cemetery and everything, but anyway, his that his casket was in kind of exploded and it come out of the ground. It raised up about three weeks. And you could see a crack, you know, under the side and everything that the ball had opened up from the inside out like it blew out, and Harry Spitz and been buried for sixty years about sixty years and the freaky part was when they opened it up. He looked like he did sixty years ago. Yeah. Well, Ted, but yeah. Cool at the same time. You're right. And when he died his mother, they put his mother and mental hospital know, how long it went to a mental hospital and a friend of mine was like one of those nursing assistant. So she actually helped take care of her there. I found out much later, and she told me when she started to work there that they told her that once a year they called her. I don't know what they don't remember what they call it spits, they called her specialty his mother, and they said her furniture in her room would change around the furniture and move around change. Rearrange furniture. Sure happened once a year. But nobody of course, they don't do that. And then lost it. You know? Right. He thought they was just kidding around. And while she was working there it actually happened. Anyway, the WVU patriots. I thought at the college the professors would go and talk to Harry once in a while because he was a genius. So they knew the kid and this name quite often. And when this happened they couldn't find no gas explosions. There's no too much on the ground. They did everything. And they couldn't figure out what happened because there was no no proof of anything. Why this happened? And that coupled of funeral homes got together, and they re very him and everything and putting back in the ground. And so there's all kinds of stuff written on him over the years. And it's it's like I said, you can find all kinds of stuff about it. But appreciate that. That's very interesting story. It is a strange story and. You know, the, obviously the you've got enough data points in there along the way too, including the journalism piece. I wonder I'm sort of surprised that that story hasn't popped up before we haven't seen it on one of those goes TV shows or something college somebody is doing some podcast and were just did what about him about him?

"WVU are I'm Robin young. It's here and now football fans are wondering the landscape unmarred in a post Super Bowl Malays nothing to watch. Hold on the alliance of American football is throwing a lifeline the new league is heading into its second weekend of games. Eight teams, including the Arizona hotshots the Atlanta legends, the San Diego fleet Mike Pence Kaz here. No sports. Analysts host the daily five guests the Justice league dot com. Did you like that image? I like you said that up those are the stakes. Yes. And by the way, I was unhappy during the Super Bowl football fans. Yeah. Well, what do you think of this new league because someone NFL bigwigs apparently were skeptical, but they came away impressed at least according to USA today. Yes. I would say the level of play was described as what you'd get in the second half of a preseason game. But that's not terrible. It's a bunch of guys who are in the NFL for reason. Although some of them probably. Could be and I understand from the NFL's perspective. Why they would like a league like this to exist? Because there's not a lot of great ways to see potentially talented players when you're watching college. They're not playing against great players, and they're not playing, and you know, pro style offenses. So it will be good for them. They shouldn't see this league as a competitor. They should see it as essentially like a quasi farm system or a feeder system that they don't have to pay for. That's great. Necessarily mean, we're at a time when we're talking about even if you love football, there's a recognition kids aren't playing as much because of injuries. I mean is expansion the right way to go. This is the point. And it's why I am conflicted. Why I am literally ambivalent if this were a baseball league or a even even another kind of Hockey League, which exist, and they exist for a reason minor leagues and unaffiliated leagues. It'd be fine. It'd be great, you know, giving fans more of the sport they want with a little bit of a lower temperature lower ticket prices in some different cities. All that's for the good. But as you mentioned football, it's very hard to say that more football on this earth. Or in America is an unalloyed good thing. I will say this though of all the levels of football or ways to convince me that football could be okay, professional informed. Adults getting paid to play football. That is the least bad form of football. Whereas I think southern college football, essentially indentured servitude in the service of football that might be the most bad form of football. And that's right now what the feeder system is. Okay. We got a minute. The af has an app it allows fans to follow games with these visualizations the league founder, Charlie ever, Saul son of dick Ebersol calls calls it Madden versus angry birds. He says that's what it looks like is that gonna push the thing forward. They do have innovations. They will for instance, you can listen in as referees make decisions that's interesting. I bet you that whether this fails or exists as an ongoing enterprise, and maybe the best they can hope for is one day some of their teams get absorbed. But I bet they influence the NFL. I bet at least with the presentation of it. And this happened with the development definitely happened with the XFL to failed leagues that influence the NFL and not the NFL fo- forward in terms of being a more innovative way. To experience the game. The the this new league is going to do that my Pesca here now is sports analysts. You also hosts the daily podcast the gist at slate dot com. Talking about the alliance of American footfall. We'll see if you know if we're talking about it in the future, Mike. Thank.

"Rachel martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. A lawsuit. Massachusetts does not make the Sackler family. Look good. The Sackler is on the company Purdue pharma, it's the company that makes the painkiller Oxycontin. It's being sued for promoting a highly addictive drug that has played a prominent role in the opioid crisis. And newly released documents in that lawsuit show, a member of the family pushing for bigger doses and thus greater sales Martha bebinger of WVU ours covering this story. Good morning. Good morning. What are these documents? These documents are the latest version in a complaint, which was filed by the Massachusetts. Attorney general Maura Healey. What we see now is new lines that were previously blacked out hundreds and hundreds of them, and they show board notes about payments that allegedly totaled hundreds of millions of dollars a year to the sack list. Those that's the family that owns Purdue Fausto. This is the board of directors there taking notes we knew about these papers before. But now we can actually read what is on them. And they show. Oh, a men's prophets. They show immense profits four billion over about thirteen year, period. Four billion of more like a ten year period and the Sackler had the power to effectively set their own payment here because it is they are in control of the company is that what happened they held a majority on the board for all of that time. That's correct. And they continue to vote themselves quite substantial payments in two thousand nine Steve. For example, the Sackler paid themselves three hundred and thirty five million dollars the same time they authorized spending one hundred and twenty two million on sales reps who were charged with ramping up prophets. And in that year. They acknowledged some harm from one of their opioid drugs Oxycontin because they approved two point seven million in personal injury claims. So they knew this was dangerous now, I just want to remind people Martha for for those who who maybe don't quite know, the Sackler is, of course, are a very big family. They're very wealthy have been for very long time. Philanthropists other things not all of them are implicated here. But in these documents one. Family member in particular. Really really is right. Richard sackler. Yes. He held the position of CEO until two thousand three. He was on the board for many years the Email year, referring to talks about pushing sales of a higher dose of Oxycontin, which was more addictive. And so people would stay on it longer. They would need more. It was more expensive drug. There are also many references to board members directing sales in Massachusetts in particular, higher volume of sales more visits to doctors to try to encourage more prescriptions. These are all allegations, of course. But there are documents that site board note emails and many other forms of communication that seemed to really be evidence of this pattern. You just said these are all allegations. What's the company saying, and what are the Sackler saying about all of this the company Purdue pharma is saying that Massachusetts attorney general cherry picked from a million documents to try to build this case that it's riddled with inaccuracies, and that she's really trying to vilify Purdue even though there are many other companies involved in this opioid. An attorney for the Sackler says, they don't even belong in the lawsuit. There's no jurisdiction to sue them in Massachusetts because they had no direct dealings there at it is at least true that other companies are involved because another company is being sued justed, Massachusetts. I guess we should note. Martha thanks so much. Really? Appreciate it. Thank you. That's Martha bebinger of WVU are Republicans in congress are increasingly willing to say out loud that they differ with the president at least when it comes to foreign policy. The latest example came yesterday when most Republicans supported a measure were Buchanan, the idea of withdrawing US troops from Syria and Afghanistan that sends a message even though the vote has no force of law. NPR's Tim Mack reports congressional Republicans really break with President Trump. But the GOP controlled Senate voted to go on the record pushing back on Trump's foreign policy specifically on Syria on this vote. The yeas are sixty eight the nays are Twenty-three majority leader Mitch McConnell's measure calls upon. On the administration to certify the enduring defeat of al-qaeda and ISIS before US forces can be pulled on Thursday afternoon. Forty three out of fifty three Senate Republicans voted to rebuke, the president the measure is attached to a broader Mideast policy Bill that the Senate is still debating here's McConnell making the case Al Qaeda have yet to be defeated at American national security interest require continued commitment to our mission. The president had unexpectedly tweeted in December that the United States was withdrawing its approximately two thousand troops from Syria. Here's Trump in a video message. We have one against ISIS. We've beaten them and we've beaten a badly that sudden declaration of a withdrawal from Syria lead Trump administration officials to raise concerns that ISIS had not yet been defeated. And that the withdrawal would leave American allies in the lurch. Here's former Republican Senator Daniel coats. Now, the director of national intelligence in testimony before congress this week. Isis is intent on resurging and still commands thousands of fighters in Iraq and Syria. Republican senators have been put in the uncomfortable position of chiding the president while simultaneously appearing to support him. It's a reflection of both Trump's unorthodox beliefs and his enduring popularity with the Republican base. They both share GOP Senator James risch, the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee tried to downplay the message the Senate was sending asked by PR whether the measures should be taken as a rebuke the president. Here's what rish said, no it shouldn't because it's not. And here's Republican Senator Jim Inhofe. The chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee sidestepping whether it was about splitting with Trump. This is way of saying that we in the. In the set were in the congress agreed that it should be all military agrees in the president agrees. So it's another way in this is a sibling that people do say, the president can do a lot of things in foreign policy unilaterally. But ultimately on major changes relating to funding and policy. He needs to maintain a coalition of support in congress. The Senate vote indicates that he doesn't have their support on a quick withdrawal from Syria. Tim Mack.

"This is here and now from NPR and WB you are I'm Jeremy Hobson Democrats have taken full control of the government. In Illinois today is Jay Pritzker was sworn in as the state's forty third governor his party holds veto proof majorities now in both the house and the Senate if act Illinois Democrats haven't had majorities like this in the general assembly since the nineteen sixties Pritzker who comes from the family that owns the Hyatt hotel chain beat incumbent Republican governor Bruce rounder in a battle of billionaires in November rounders tenure was marked by a stalemate with the legislature that left Illinois without a budget for more than two years. Joining us now is Shawn Crawford. News director at WVU IS in Springfield, the state capital. Sean. Hi, Jeremy so Pritzker made some bold promises during the campaign, including raising the minimum wage legalizing recreational marijuana and sports betting is he going to be able to get those things done now that his party controls. Everything will it is a progressive agenda that he's laid out and to be honest. It's a pretty. Progressive general assembly right now, a lot of Democrats as you mentioned have been in a lot of New Democrats have been elected. So the theory is yes, at least on some of these things especially things that don't cost a lot of money to the state treasury. He could probably get some of these things through marijuana seems to be one of those real possibilities here in the session. Is he going to need Republicans at all to get his agenda through he might need them on certain things, but it's such a huge democratic majority. And again, some of these things I think are in lockstep with what the caucuses the democratic caucus in the house and Senate want that I don't know that he'll need them. He may want them. He may want to try to foster more bipartisanship for certain areas, but he can get through even if he can get a lot of these things through even if a lot of Democrats decide they don't want to go along Illinois faces some major challenges the state has more than seven billion dollars in unpaid bills Pritzker is going to be trying to negotiate a new contract with the state's largest employees union which was at an impasse with governor route. Talk about the challenges that governor Pritzker faces. Well, that's one right there. I think in the sense that, you know, the state of Illinois has a huge backlog of bills a lot of that brought on by previous mismanagement of government through the years and also because of that state budget impasse when Bruce rounder took over he did not go ahead and put in place a higher income tax rate that had been there at expired. He did not go along with that. And it took two years before lawmakers were able to put it back in during that period of time the state continued to spend at a higher rate like the tax was in place. And so the backlog of bills is up there is a deficit in the current budget that he will inherit Pritzker will inherit here, and then we have one of the most unfunded pension liabilities in the US. So anything he does here where the whether it comes to working with the state's unions were there comes to spending money on certain projects that he wants to get in place and policies. He's going to have to watch the bottom line and the state is dealing with population losses. Well, that's been. Issue for many years. We are one of the most one of the largest amounts of out migration in the country. And that has not gotten better that has been going on like you said for a number of years. So you have to be careful if you're going to increase taxes, and do some of these things that could make it more difficult for people to stay in Illinois when you're already losing population. I guess in this case, he's a billionaire. So he's going to maybe be able to say it's not gonna drive the rich people away if I raise taxes on them. Trust me, I'm one of them. But we'll see what happens there, and Sean I guess we're also going to have to see if he's able to end up not leaving office and heading to prison like so many of his friends. Let's hope now.

There you go. So like, stop Lee. Now, you're picking this day, and this is not your actual name. So what's your mindset in in in choosing that name? So, you know, everything you said initially. That's exactly what I wanted to avoid when I first started out wrestling. And this kind of like it kind of shows you how like string of society is when I started wrestling. I was sixteen. You know, I I love I love wrestling. I want to entertain people all this stuff, and I go and get trained, and when it's you know, when they, you know side, okay? You're ready for a match and guess or thinking about a character? I was thinking, you know, this guy this guy, and they go. No, no, no, you're Muslim gotta be a bad guy. Wouldn't even have to be.

And I was in high school when nine eleven happened. So I didn't get like I think it bullied like I didn't get like treated differently. But I definitely felt people looked at me differently.

And we've got gotta kill all of them kill all the Muslims. And I'm and I'm sitting. Right next to them. I'm like holy like, and I didn't get mad at them because I could understand their mindset of like they're tuning into the TV and all their sing is anyone has a Muslim like name that looks like a Muslim presentative evil. So they're gonna associate that with bad evil as I don't wanna push that agenda and be a part of that. So I I refuse to do that type of character initially, I as a K I wrote a high flying.

I can see that logic. And you know, I I watch I still watch a lot of rest because I do the show every week. And I want to be informed, you know, to something that might be changing. You know, the the business is everybody has a big massive opinion about what's wrong. Well, you know, what's wrong is the fact we'll give WVU, for example, is the fact that the most over people in the company are women. And I don't have problem with that.

I don't know if they know how to get over and also know that in in booking if somebody cannot get on a roll that is dinner Faial corny. You're gonna have a very hard time to get them over. You can't win one this week thought out next week. We'll win the next week. And then you, you know, whatever. JR? See you got it all wrong. So that's what got that's what got Muhammad Ali over because he won every third fight from the time. He turned pro he win one. Eat lose a couple. He's still. It it it amazes me. How people can't figure out that. Nobody people that pull for an underdog are a specific part of the population. You gotta have the right underdog people wanna back a winner and to show the people that someone is important to when you first exposed that talent to them. They've got to be winning. They gotta be winning in convincing fashion. And they gotta be allowed to talk and tell people why they're interesting and why they ought to be paying attention to that person. And they've got to be involved in some things and then after a period of time, if all those things are done, and people are still really free when you come out, then you know, that person goes way, he learns new hold maybe and comes back another day. But if the people started getting behind that person than you do more of that, it's not that hard, but people show up and are competitive right off. Off the bat s with other with opponents that they're featured with on television, especially when those opponents have already been pigeonholed in a position where the people view them as Gaz on the.

New strategy defeats cancer cells that evade chemotherapy

"When the body sees toxic material immune cells kill it, by cancer cells release sneaky, they put the brakes on the immune system, immune checkpoint blockers. Stop that from happening you basically, preventing that brake from engaging. It would it be kind of similar like cancer had kind of has like this invisible cloak that it like kinda hides under. And then you kind of take off that Claudio by think that's a great way to describe it since the cancer is no longer invisible. The immune system can mount an attack. It was a huge breakthrough in the food and drug admin. Ration- approved the first drugs to do this in two thousand eleven the science behind the miracle. Drug was developed back in the nineties by a guy named max krummel in a lab at UC Berkeley, I was very frustrated graduate student for few years trying to develop an antibody that would do something after many long nights krummel noticed. His antibody was influencing the behavior of immune cells. You can drive a car you can exceleron them or you can break them. And then it was really like playtime. He started injecting the antibodies into sick mice and essentially in the various first set of experience my antibodies caused tumors to shrink now fast forward a couple of decades to Ashley Walton story her doctors hope the technology developed in crumbles lab could be the key to killing her cancer. But the treatment was haring when Ashley started receiving immunotherapy the ninety minute drips or followed by a slew of side effects. I started getting really high fevers, I got a few skin rashes gastritis. Still her tumors were shrinking then after six months, new lesions cropped up Ashley's abdomen. So we're doctors added a second immunotherapy drug to the mix. And fortunately, she had a lot of the drugs possible side effects. Yeah. I just generally felt like the life was being sucked out of me. So you go into a really dark place for several years actually hitchhiked from drug to drug just to stay alive. There are so many advancements being made in the field of immunotherapy that even if it doesn't cure. You. It gets you to the next big thing that wild ride paid off. She hasn't had an infusion in the last ten months, so technically in remission. Yes. That's. Stories like Ashley is are really exciting to on colleges. Dr Leonard Lipton. Feld is the chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society. So imagine when we've gone from the time when we had nothing to offer to today, and they're talking about cure for some patients with advanced melanoma, scientists and big pharma are really hopeful about the future. There's about a thousand current trials to develop new therapy drugs to help more people fight different kinds of cancer about thirty to forty percent of patients still do not respond to immunotherapy remember worth the beginning of the stern. We're not at the end. We still have a long way to go. We're gonna have ups, and we're going to have Down's back in the exam room. Ashley and her mom receives the prising news at our latest checkup with Dr Dowd. So what do you think about pregnancy are trying to start a family? So I think it's time to get pregnant actually.
