"Got another nba game. I want to dive into the rockets in thunder game scheduled for wednesday night was postponed after houston. Didn't have the league required. Eight available players need to proceed with the game. Under the nba's protocols all comes after superstar. James harden was declared unavailable after video surfaced of him partying at a houston. Area club hardened defended his actions on yesterday the same day the nba. Find him fifty k. For breaking protocol perk. We know james harden wants out of houston. The miami deal fell through. Tell me we know he's open to philly or brooklyn. Should the rockets sit hearted. Hell no hell no send him for what what what what what what are. The rock is going to benefit by sitting james or nothing. This is a gas deal today. That is a walk in bucket. One of the best scores game has seen is no way to rockets. Kasit james on a guy that japan over costa forty million dollars a year. Mvp candidate type guy. Yes he has his extracurricular activities that he has his issues off the court but when he steps between those lines the gospel could play basketball and he can up the rockets he still is. The right missed the rocky hill. He is culture steel while he's in iraqi uniform. The rock is what best decision is to play janes or whatever they have to deal with even moving it makes zero sense at all to see. James wallis is okay. We're playing with them. The markets cousins is. Okay would pay when he did play with them in. The preseason is pretty good to me. So i know i. If i'm the rockets you gotta hold tight. You gotta deal with these issues internally. Try to give pass it but send james is not the answer
Philip Green's retail empire Arcadia calls in administrators
"The coronavirus pandemic has dealt a potentially fatal blow to british retail giant arcadia. And its owner sir. Philip green within the next few hours the group which owns internationally recognized brand. Top shop is expected to file for administration much bankruptcy protection. The process will shield the business from creditors as it tries to get finances in order while parts or all of the company is sold off. Well that means some of the group's stores could close. The bbc's simon jack says many of the brands under arcadia umbrella are household names here in the uk and they're likely to survive in some form. The june the crown is top shop other brands which people won't be familiar with the us like burton wallis evans. Dorothy perkins some of these brands or seem to be very old school and new internet only brands of come. Along targeting millennials. Much more multan have got a greater connection with the shoppers. They're servicing one affiliate greens big problems as he had this inherent loathing technology. And i'm afraid retail is a technology game these days and that's why he didn't keep pace with it now. The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc across the retail sector. This year arcadia has collapsed could potentially even worse than that for some retailers. Big department store chains here. That have shops within a shop. That's right so there's another big transaction going on which is a fading and ailing department store called a sportswear company called jetty. Sports is trying to buy that now. Deb enemies inside it as you say has lots of concessions of the brands that philip green and say if this goes bust that other merger is in danger because the income they would get from those concessions is suddenly going to disappear so there is a domino effect. Here if you add it all together. We're looking at thirteen thousand jobs in the katie groups. Greens empire and twelve thousand in the devon's group. So twenty five thousand. I actually spoke to some green over the weekend. I said how much of this is to do with covid. He said last night. And what i'm going to be open identity stock to buy but the cards were dealt on this many years ago because he did not adapt to the changing face of internet retail. And this is also bad for the suppliers who supply these stores. Like top shop yet. They could take a big hit clearly. They're suffering because many of the shops they sell to have been closed over different periods of lockdown. Funny enough the supplies. We spoken to did not feel. They weren't getting paid by philip. Green empire arcadia. A lot of them will have bought insurance. In case the person they sell to goes bust. They won't be able to get that insurance by selling. Philip green's empire anymore so yes you could be looking at big hit in the supply chain. Tv salmon jack. Thanks for breaking this down my pleasure

COVID-19, Chinas wet markets, and bats - is it US not THEM?
"And now we see Larry's outbreaks in the last few decades that are related to animal eating in China. What happens in China? What people do to animals in China how repercussion beyond Chinese border? Let's Professor Deborah Jar. She's author of animals in China Law and society and we're going to take a close look at the animals that find themselves in China's wet markets today and into the curious origins of this Almighty pandemic. I have to side. It's beyond anything that I could have imagined. It really is at bats. Worst CASE SCENARIO SCOTT AS FAR as I'm concerned and that's from someone who's worked in the area and someone is trying to increase the awareness that this kind of thing would happen. It seems to have happened so rapidly and we seem to have been totally unprepared for it. She infield he's with the echo health alliance as their science and Policy Advisor for China and Southeast Asia regions eventually and environmental scientist. Hey knows he's infectious diseases.

That's caused this cove. Nineteen pandemic one being that it came from the Wuhan Institute Veraldi Attain Hayes. Worked closely alongside. There was a big a lot of discussion about conspiracy theories either about manufacturing losses biowarfare about escapes from large raise. Excetera truth is trying to fiction.

That'll be working flat out getting pulled in every direction. Trying to get on top of this thing. That's ahead stop. But where the virus got. It's real headstart. Perhaps OVER MILLENNIA. Ease in bats and scientists have benches with bats have taken him all over the place. All over Italy David Heymann is professor of Infectious Disease Ecology at Massey University in New Zealand. And Yeah some people selling hundreds of back carcasses who to Yeah people wearing Jin as a libation. A bill offering to the bats in a cave. And there's no doubt about it is that's the galling but what I want to know is why beds in particular how the so many viruses that are so deadly to us and yet not to them and to do that. We need to get denied. That's a bit better which Mike Up About. A fifth of the world's Mammalian species the phenomenal mammals. Actually they're the only mammals that truly fly the evolutionary. Oh they've been around many tens of millions of years from fossil records. Basically they live live everywhere on earth really apartment article so that enthused New Zealand out here Hawaii three to take so they're very well adapted the lots of different spaces and the really good for the environment. So for example predation pests. They prevent crop and forest damage. Because I eating insect predators suck the hugely ecologically important. Certainly the the fruit eating bats are great seat disperses Italy to see elite fruit the C. Pass through the bat schedule intestinal system and then it puts it out in a new location. So that helps maintain I. They also pollinate Important crops because revolved for so long. There are many plants for example rely on best to do the pollination and all the seed dispersal for them. David Hyman Ward. Mike's bats such a distinct. Such prime reservoir for novel viruses that can then subsequently crossover and infect other animals than they known to humans. What is it about the laugh of bets and better species so there are many hypotheses one is just the sheer diversity of bats around the world so therefore they have a diverse range of ours is and we think that they've been around for a long time cheaply long lived species relatively speaking and I will live for years and tens of years. Not like rodents that live within a year. They're gone. They will like humans in cities. I mean they form very dense colonies with thousands in a small space so that's ideal for infection spill to transmit from one individual to another Peter Virus Heaven and what's more abet colony might contain multiple bat species so viruses can adapt and crossover between them. He catching a ride when the bats migrate onwards so then they concede infection into new columnist. These multiple networks and communities about spending vast lots of different viruses between them probably lead to them being great host for these viruses. You look at the things I well I if Laras then this is way are would do well it. All of this going from built the interaction. The numbers I felt the citizens either Tom etc etc and the range of viruses bets carry all that originated in bats is mind blowing. Yeah there's extra diversity and it's not just trying of ours. Is that seems to be the same for paramedics of our season. Rabies probably had bats and even things like measles and canine distemper virus. Which we now and paper will be familiar with. Lissa viruses herpes to ebola influenza. A Hendra Nipah that most viruses. That bets incubate don't seem to make bets seek rabies. Seems to be one of the notable exceptions. Why don't they get seek? You didn't quite a really hard to study some of the hypotheses of that because bats have evolved to repair the muscles for example that the tissues that damage during his flight is really intensive. They vote repair. Mechanisms enable them to repair cells for example and versus damaged cells and. There's lots of consequences to that. That doesn't tell the entire story. They ran the immune system. That means that they. They seem to have constant arts they. Immune system switched on during the dice and also they. They fly everyday that I get the core body. Temperatures are effectively. What we do if we're sick and feverish so if you can imagine that we as mammals we have to similar response when rail one hypothesis is that when we do our normal response to viral infections. Then actually these viruses evolved in that sort of environment. And they don't mind so they carry on replicating the things that we do to suppress viruses don't suppress the bat farces. But that's just one. Hypothyroidism is a few others clever little biological systems in a molecular clock analysis that said that Corona viruses and bats had been coexisting for at least ten thousand news probably hundreds of thousands of years and possibly millions of years so these are very robust and sort of long term. Evolution are of these farces within spats and the issue is not about changing to become infectious. Hatha generate to patriots getting from bad to the purse on Wallis taking him. Bats doing their own thing. There's no pro-woman's each bridge what we call an epidemiological bridge wants that bridges. Creator so the agent can get from the reservoir to the purse. So you pay. That's when the trouble starts and there is a perfect place for that Epidemiological Bridge to be built.

"So on that fateful day in eighteen eighty nine when she was bushwack my rebel surely died on that dirt road. Shut off her Horse Bell Star Road On. That's for me it's all about and that's what I will continue to do. Thank you so much for coming on to chat about Davy Crockett and David Crockett and starting to separate some of the fact from the fiction that we saw in the movie now.

The lion of the West can share a little bit more information about your book and where someone listening can pick up a copy. Sure David Carpet.

I'd like to thank Michael Wallace once again for coming on the show. If you WANNA learn more about the history behind the Real David. Crockett go grab. Michael's book called David Crockett the lion of the West. But that's just one of Michael's books as he mentioned at the end there. He's working on his twentieth book. So there's plenty more great stories from history that he's written about. I'll make sure to add a link to that book and we can learn more about all of Michael's books in the show notes for this episode as well as on. The show is home on the web based on a true story. Podcast DOT COM. Okay now it's time for the answer to our two truths and a lie game from the beginning of the episode as a refresher here are the two truths and one lie number one Davy. Crockett was responsible for the peace negotiations that ended the war with the Creek nation number two Davy Crockett was captured at the Alamo and later killed by order of General Santa Anna Number. Three the Real David. Crockett met a theatrical version of himself called Nimrod wildfire. Did you find out which one is ally. Let's start with the end number three. That is true as Michael explained the subtitle of his book. David Crockett the line of the West. The subtitle being the line of the west part that comes from a play where at one of the shows in Washington DC. The Real Crockett met a theatrical character called Nimrod wildfire that was based on his life. Well perhaps a more accurate way to phrase that would be that the plays character was based on all the tall tales written about Davy Crockett Adventures. That brings us to number two. That is also true as Michael explained the movie showing fess. Parker's version of Davy. Crockett going down at the Alamo swinging. Old Betsy over. His head is not true. What really happened was that Mr Crockett was captured and later killed at the order of General Santa Anna. That means the lie is number one. The movie tries to make it seem like Davy Crockett. Some sort of a peace negotiator that ended the war with the creeks. What is Michael? Explained is just not true at all that just about wraps this episode before we go the last thing I like to do on each episode is share. How much time and effort went into creating the episode now. I know that's not something that most podcast do. And that's exactly why I'm sharing this information. Maybe if you find out how much time and money goes into creating podcast like mine.

"There again that goes back to his integrity and the fact that he just didn't want to see people die and not be treated as human being. We see a little bit of that. At least I get this implication from movie when we see Davy. Crockett go against the leader of the creeks in the movie. At least it's a chief named red stick and we see this happen with a one on one fight where he tracks down the chiefs red stick and he has this one on one fight with the chief and he ends up beating him. But then chief red stick says he's not gonNA trust the the government because they're not you know he's not going to join the treaty but David. Crockett gives his word that you can go home and live peacefully on your land. It's you know I'm giving you my word. Shake hands and the movie just implies. Oh the war's over everybody gets to go home and live in peace in thanks to Davy Crockett's negotiation skills. He solved everything. It's kind of how the movie shows things happening. But I'm sure that that's not how things actually happened. Can you explain how that war came to an end? And how was Davy Crockett involved in any of that? No I mean that's of course the Hollywood. That's Uncle Walt Disney's version and that's all and good the tied up in a nice little package with a pretty boat. No carpet was not a negotiator. He did not have a famous or infamous battle. Go to combat with chief at all what happened. Ultimately at the close of those house Jackson of course ended up and down on the Gulf coast and the final battle. Really the war. The armistice was bitten had already been written by the time they've been he didn't get the word time in the very famous and romanticized battle do. Harlan's where he enlisted the help of the famous pirate buccaneer Hershon Lafitte and his Ruffians and they killed many of the British soldiers who were walking right into their musket fire and of course as we often do in this country that ultimately ensure Jackson years later his rise to the presidency we love to elect war heroes to office but what the Cherokees were not counting on his that all these gestures about adopting the the white culture and so forth would do them no good they could accept the White Man's God take on his language take on his lifestyle even dress like some of them and they started a plantation system with cotton and which meant they acquired slaves African slaves just like the the white folks did and guess what when the time came Andrew Jackson. Who BY THAT? Time was the president of the United States and no lover of Indians and all had them removed and taken off their land. Their ancestral land was some discovery of Gold Georgia. Well we have to get to that goal. So the Cherokees the creeks the Chart Toes chickasaw seminoles all had to be up rooted in on a variety and many many. Not just one there were many. Many trails appears taking these people from ancestral homes from their native land in moving them into Indian territory. Today's Oklahoma many of them died along. The way marched off at point of Bannet in on land on watery trails of tears. They they came here before that happened. We had Crockett. Risa like really a hero. An unsung hero as we're to take Jackson on and try to prevent that from happening and that story is very important and really virtually unknown by most people who aren't familiar with the true story of Crockett Jackson. Then or is that getting ahead of our story not a lot. We're going to jump ahead some years because what happened to Crockett eventually well. After the creek war as to the rest of the teens and into the eighteen twenties and so forth is that he kept up with his frontier way of life and his wife and children hunting carrying on but he also became interested in politics and he had a natural ability to spellbound an audience with his storytelling and that led him eventually to local office. Stayed Office in. Tennessee. And miraculously this frontier Zeman was elected to the US Congress and that was a time when most of the people in political office on the national level where from the upper classes. So it was. He was really A novelty when he came to Washington but the way he's portrayed and in film is a more of a country bumpkin in any wasn't he was an intelligent man he literate. He's a reader. You know he could really keep an audience stairs. I said spellbound. That's what helped him politically and when he saw what was going on with Jackson in Jackson's cronies in their move to expel all lease Indian tribes to Indian territory. He stood up against it. He stood up against it in the halls of Congress he railed against them in the halls of Congress he told Jackson. Please stop we have trouble. These people enough enough is enough. Let them be any really not only took on Jackson but his constituents so they he betrayed them. He's a wealthy Tennessee. Landowners these poor dirt farmers the squatters all of them one that Indian land. And that's take it. Get RID OF THEM. Put them in their own little place. Let them right out there. An Indian territory and crooked said now when probably one of the most gehring and dangerous moves a political figure could make.

"Before we get into some of the specific details and storylines that we see in Davy Crockett King of the wild frontier. I was like to take a step back and just get a sense for how a historian and author feels about the movie so overall. What did you think about the way? They portrayed Davy Crockett on screen in the movie. That's a two prong answer to that question. The first Prong is this. How did I feel about it when I first saw the film and I saw the TV show? I was ecstatic. Because I was you know an eight-year-old kid and my dreams came true. David crooked leaped out of that big screen right into my lap and the personage of says Parker. It was everything I thought he would be. Buckskin raccoon have a big long gun. You know killing bears and just bigger than life. So I thought it was great at sort of scraped greg film but as I matured and grew up and became interested in history and of course developed this writing career mine. I learn more and more about the true Davy Crockett. And that's what really sparked my interest in in writing a book. David Crooked King of the wild frontier is perfectly great. If you're a big eyed kid sitting down and watching a rerun of it on the two birds are or even reading some of the vintage books for kids about crack. That largely came out when I was a kid back in the fifties but it was also time to tell the adult story the true story of Crockett and my h my editors agreed and I sat down and opened a vein as I always do in the process of writing and came out with David. Crockett the lion of the West that leads directly into my next question which is round how the movie starts now. According to the opening song in the movie we hear that the years eighteen thirteen and the movie were I to him. As General Andy Jackson leading the fight against the creeks as the song kind of plays out and we see this animated Arrow hitting a fort in the woods. It bursts into flame kind of punctuates the war and this is how we first meet fess Parker's version of Davy Crockett in the movie as a scout. For General Jackson's soldiers. Now was the movie correct and showing that Davy. Crockett was a scout for General Andrew. As opposed to Andy Jackson soldiers partially Crockett did during the creek war as it's called Around the Worby t to become a member of the Tennessee militia and that was all under the command of General Andrew Jackson Old Hickory. Is the Anglo population called the native American population? The Creeks Cherokees various the five tribes that were ultimately removed at point. Abandon it and brought to Oklahoma at that time Indian territory. His name in English was sharp knife. It wasn't old hickory. But he had some interaction with Jackson but he wasn't. He was never constantly Jackson side or conferring with them and so forth but he did serve under him and he served in that creek war but he did not take a lot of pleasure in that war in his experiences experiencing combat and death up close and personal. They're really made a mark on Mr Crockett and ultimately became the source of problem that came to the surface many years later when Andrew Jackson became president another main character that we see at this point was George Russell. Davy Crockett side. Was He actually a real person? As well George Russell played by by the was that sort of David Gear in these type of films and stories in this country and hero has to have a sidekick you know for every Roy Rogers there has to be a not Dale Evans. Pat Buttram it. You just need sidekicks and really what he was composite character. He was a little bit of this guy and a little bit of that guy and served his purpose. This sort of the sun. Chopin's Panza to Crockett's Don Quixote. That's a great great analogy there now in the movie. What kind of thrust into the war between the United States and the Creek Nation? We don't get a lot of context from the movie about what is going on. We just the movie implies that the United States of the good guys and the creeks are the bad guys but of course with any war. It's all a matter of perspective. Can you give us a little bit more historical context for this war? That was going on that. We've seen the movie between the US and the Creek nation. We're sure during those years a war of eighteen twelve which went on for a couple of years. We're fighting Great Britain but a lot of tribes were taking sides either with the The new fairly new United States are and that certainly happened in in the mid South and deep South. Where most of all this conflict took place in over to the eastern seaboard so the Cherokee tribe large significant southeastern tribes trying to get along with the United States in the government but also maintain their own integrity and heritage as the other tribes wanted to the allied with the American forces. And so you had them fighting along with the militias of Tennessee Georgia against the creeks and ultimately what happened is there were many many Of course Jackson and his troops and allies best at the mall. Eventually of course beat them into submission. Henson aimed sharp knife that also it caused some among the tribes. And what it did for. Mr Crockett is raw. Lanky frontiers men as I said experiencing combat for the first time. It really troubled him because he witnessed. We can only be called atrocities burning of villages to killing women. Children everything that every war is cracked up to be and nothing romantic nothing. Noble about war. It is just a to coin a phrase hell and that really was driven home to KROC. He had no problem going out and slain beasts in the forest. He wasn't frontiersman. He was actually a professional hunter. Who's a bear? Hunter probably killed between three hundred fifty nine four hundred bears his life and he he could do that in the didn't bother him but he was. He had no need to see or kill any or see anyone else killed. And that's very important. Because once again I'll refer to years later and we'll get to that point where his decision and how that war influenced him came to cause the end of his relationship as it was with with Andrew Jackson. Green Point there that you know there's a there's a difference between frontiers. Mun and experiencing war there as you were mentioning that though may be curious about. How old was Crockett around that time? Well let's do the math. I don't think this is giving the story away. Crooked died in eighteen thirty six at the age of forty nine much too young so twenty five twenty six roughly. I believe yeah all right in there right in that period and at that time he he was in. He was throughout his adult life throughout his whole life. Actually he was a very vital man. He was very robust. He was a man of the American frontier which started on the eastern coast of the United States and just marched westward and by the time. Crockett had come of age. The frontier was where he lived because of that invisible line had come to the mid South and was approaching the big river the Mississippi and it would be the Trans Mississippi West and we would keep going and going near the to`real we until of course we hit the Pacific shore and so he was just about a decade ahead of that remarkable interesting period. We call manifest destiny which started in the mid forties about a decade after died. And that's that's of course a whole nother story. But he was one of the early foot soldiers. If you will of what became manifest destiny and it would have been interesting to see how he would ever acted. Because again this whole notion that the Anglo population of the country with him. How blessed by this guy who looked down and said you have the manifest destiny your destiny to conquer this whole continent and everyone bought into that because that land can be ours and there's no one out there where there were in fact a lot of people out there a good hunk of their real estate along to Mexico including Texas in that whole Western shore and The entire American South West and from Mexico from today's Mexico border to Canada and it was just the height of arrogance and crooked would probably I would predict have not thought too much of that. He he may have eventually gone after California himself because he was Gypsy foot and he liked to keep on the move but he certainly wouldn't have had the same attitude that many people had about all the many many Indian tribes that lived in that area forever and ever and all the Mexican citizens who resided.

No we are although I could talk to you about Hans Fictional the rest of the time that we have together. Dr Painting is a professor and author posture preacher. He's written a number of books. He has a friend to the TV institute. Big Friend Friend town this week and teaching It's been my favorite time of the year. It's the most wonderful time of the year so even when we started the training program one of the hopes was bringing in outside speakers Experts in their field but are also churchman. Church women people who who want to to do theology or new tests ultimate cities at the highest level in the academy but can also translate to the local church and we didn't know it was gonNA work five years ago But we brought you back five times so it's worked. It's pretty well and you know this. Our students have just really gravitated towards you. And I've also seen you Avenue now for seven eight years or so You've always been a wonderful the teacher and a good friend. But even as you've been preaching more your church just seeing God used that to shape you into a just a beautiful person into theologian into a real. You're a real person. You know what I mean by the air you're dealing with substantive issues but you're also living In a broken world that we're living in and you're able to speak speak in both of those worlds. Yeah so grateful for that well. It's the teaching works because of hungry people could be up there doing my stick and if people were hungry angry it wouldn't be the same. It's an interaction and so you guys have created something so beautiful here of hungry people who are seeking the Lord and trying to figure out their lives and and so it's annoying to come in and it's been fun part of that so you've been in town this weekend speaking about the gospel of Matthew. And would you say that has been where your focus has been the last number of years. It sounds like yeah so I had the great privilege of doing a PhD. In Matthew hasn't stopped since and I always when I think about Matthew I always think what he says in an esoteric way in chapter. Thirteen that The scribe train for the Kingdom of Heaven continues to bring out of his treasure house else. Things old and new and so we've been studying this book of Matthew for two thousand years and they're still. I've been studying for twenty years and every time I read it I see do things. They didn't see it especially everytime I preach from it one of the things that I've been amazed even though not write articles or books teach. It's when I go go to preach a passage that I come to understand it I think in its fullest way. What do you think that is I wanted to ask you about the the process of rediscovery? So somebody's many. Listen to this like okay. I'm on my Bible Reading Plan and I've done it faithfully the last twenty years. I'm coming up on a book of the Bible. I've Read Twenty Times Thirty Times Forty Times. What is some of that process of rediscovery for you as you walk the same path over and over again? How like where does that come from? Does it never feel like it's just old hat like well. Of course you know. This is what what he's doing here in the Greek and this matthew. This is a typical matthew. Move that he's making right here. Like what does rediscovery somebody no no but but what is But what does it look like. What rediscovery look like? Somebody's spending lots of time in one book of the Bible. Yeah I I think it is a it is a literary and theological Michael masterpiece and the reason. We're still reading it. Two thousand years later is obviously. It's in the Bible. We believe it's inspired. But it is a masterpiece. The reason it's still worth worth reading over and over and and a great piece of literature is one that you've reread. I just wanted to read once. And the more so structured and I always remind students that it by the time matthews written this thing down. He's been pondering and praying and preaching teaching and rearranging and editing for like thirty years. Probably by the time. He's this is is his magnum opus. This is as great piece. Just like we would read You know brothers Karamazov for something over and over and you'll see things in it even more. This is a masterpiece. Sure piece and you never get tired of it. I think the other thing and this is why things I so appreciate about all you guys. I'm thinking of Jan.. How much joy her books to her experience? As a teacher feature I think you'd probably affirm this that when you go to teach you go from passive learning to active learning and so that's what I think is amazing that I'm teaching teaching and preaching for Matthew. That's when I come to understand it more. I think you guys build things into the institude. Were there reversing say. Yeah I think so. I think a big part of the reason why I never gets boring is because I'm an active reader passive reader

"The Duke is also the one who tells the Germans that the allies have their plan for invading France consequently The Nazis changed their plan and France's lost So there's an issue though. The Duke and Duchess are in France when it falls in Churchill is terrified that the Nazis will kidnap them which is smart because that was actually the plan. The Nazis wanted to kidnap Edward and they figured when Hitler had conquered Great Britain he could install Edward as the puppet king and then of course I wallace could be queen which was also her goal and Joseph Gerbeau said about the Duke. It's a shame he is no longer king with Ham. We would've entered into an alliance and I'm going to say that if girls is your biggest fan you might WanNa rethink what you're doing. The Duchess meanwhile is hanging out with Vaughn ribbon trope or Trop were not entirely sure how to say that one WHO's the Nasi foreign minister? Lots of people thought he was her lover. He supposedly sent her seventeen carnations. Every day day to represent the number of times they'd slept together and the British government is aware by this point that the duchess is having dealings with Ribbentrop and they keep moving them all around Europe to try to keep them away from him at one point. They end up moving them to Spain. But there are too many Nazi sympathizers there and it doesn't stop the duchess from corresponding with him. So they moved them to Portugal. But that doesn't help either. She still manages to worm her way in every single time and the government and is scared. That the duke or the Duchess is going to say something to the press about their Nazi sympathies. They want the two of them where they can do the harm. The idea is to neutralize their influence. Shut them down basically But they're having a good time hanging out with all these German agents. It's all very glamorous for them and things do get more heated. Edward is giving statements to the press that are very defeatist. And kind of pro Nazi Nazi and Churchill orders him to come home or be court marshaled and Edward response that he's not coming back to England until his wife is treated like royalty which gets back to an issue we discussed in our earlier. PODCAST that even though she was named the Duchess of Windsor her she didn't have the title of Royal Highness and this is a big sore point for the two of them so while they're in Portugal and July nineteen eighteen forty. The German ambassador in Lisbon passes a message onto Berlin. The Duke believes with certainty that continued heavy bombing with make England ready for peace so at this point. The Duke is advocating bombing his own people. Which I'll pretty shocking? Yes and he also tells the Spanish royal that England government mm it is going to collapse in that. A new government will take over and make peace with Germany and somehow his brother George will abdicate. In the Duke will get to rule so it's sounding pretty delusional and Winston Churchill knows. The Duke is bad bad news and he's finally had enough right about at. This point is is interesting too because Churchill was the duke's major supporter when he was a king considering abdication and then he didn't know about his his sympathies. It's not until the war. He's seen Edwards hidden colors. Yeah so instead. The Duke and Duchess are sensed the Bahamas in August nineteen forty or the duke will be covering her and and the two of them hate this they absolutely hate it. They think of the Bahamas as their Elba which is really self-aggrandizing. Isn't Oh yeah Eh. We're just like Napoleon and even they're they're both still scheming Edwards trying to hang out on the yacht of Axel vinaigre on. Who is the best friend of Hermann Goering and the British government says you kidding? No that's not happening. And in December nineteen forty the duke also gave an interview with Fulton our slower. Who is an American journalist and in it he said Ed that Hitler was a great man and the right and logical leader of Germany and he also wanted Roosevelt to act as some sort of mediator which obviously Roosevelt? I mean no way that's not happening. Nineteen forty one even Roosevelt put them under FBI surveillance when they revisiting Miami and supposedly she was going to visit a dentist but she did all sorts of sketchy things like this. She was sending all her dry cleaning to New York. Why would you send your dry cleaning to New York if you lived in the Bahamas unless you were passing secret messages long so the FBI report has some shocking things to reveal and the big bomb? Tom was that it was the duchess's politics that made it. Impossible for Edward to marry her. And keep the throne. It had nothing to do with divorces which had been the official line all along long and so really Wallace Simpson may have saved us all from the Nazi king. So yeah that's obviously the big shocker from the FBI report but it also mentioned things like the Duke was drunk a lot of the time and the Duchess told people that he was impotent and she was the only person who who could actually satisfy him so very personal details or an FBI report In pretty pretty surprising using Glenn he was a huge deal when these records came out because the monarchy general had largely denied any allegations of Nazi sympathies. As had the official show biographer of Edward so these revelations were even more shocking. Will it makes you wonder how much people knew at the time you know. It obviously must people didn't realize the extent of this couple's sympathies with the Nazis. But Went did they know. Yeah what did they know the duchess in her memoirs actually paints them as victims in all this and says that they were tricked into going to Germany because Hitler and Edward Word had a mutual interest in public housing projects and once they're you know they couldn't be rude. They're such high society people. Oh you can't turn down an invitation tation today but even until the end of the war Edward is still quoted as saying things like after the war is over and Hitler has crushed the Americans will take over for the British. Don't want me as king but I'll be back as their leader. Well guess what Edward. No that never happened. So the question remains would Edward. Have I've been a quisling king if he had remained in power which is our new favorite phrase is a Norwegian politician who helped the Nazis conquers in country. And it means a traitor collaborator and It's a it's a scary thought. Kind of imagine this Pro Nazi Nazi sympathizer remaining King of England. And it couldn't help but remind me of when Prince Harry got him so much trouble for wearing that Nazi Outfit on Halloween in some Windsor History. Harry well in in your also forced to think of the comparison of the man who actually is King Edward's younger brother and his his wife Elizabeth who are so well known for their war efforts and keeping the country together and boosting morale by staying in London during the blitz they were in Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. The whole time even though they were told flee to Canada they were actually killed in in Buckingham Palace. It's quite quite a contrast and something to think about.

"Is a tremendous strain on him. And he's he's horrified by the duty is about to have to assume but the king makes makes his final decision December tenth nineteen thirty six and he submits his abdication I Edward do hereby declare irrevocable determination to renounce the throne for myself self and my descendants and the instrument of abdication was endorsed by parliament on December eleventh. And that evening Edward finally did get his radio broadcast cast. You'd wanted pre application. And he tells US people I found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as king as I wished to do without the help and support of the woman. I love a plea for sympathy. I've ever heard one. And that night he disappears the wind. He goes just to the continent and lives with friends. In Austria discreetly apart from Wallace while her divorce is finalized and Wallace herself does. I'm not heavy great reputation. And at the time she was perceived as a Schemer but what she because document that was kept in the private papers of Stanley Baldwin. Alwyn for years includes a declaration that signed by her before the abdication that such she'd abandoned any interest in marrying his majesty wasn't even what she was trying to get or at least she signed paper saying that when she was trying to get an even Edward's abdication speech he mentions that the the other the person who is as closely involved in this as I am has urged me to the last to not go through with it so it seems as though so she was trying to talk him down from actually giving up his throne when she had some qualms about him she was disturbed by how clingy he was and the quote that really struck us was when she wrote to an uncle and said how can a woman be a whole empire to a man and I think that's the quote that Really League Hans their married life together which after this whirlwind courtship in advocation goes on for a long time decades.

We bring the car right to your house wrote out now. That's easy Lisa. So what's next. Edward is named the Duke of Windsor by his brother. WHO's now George? The sixth and Wallace's divorced is finalized. They're married June third. Nineteen thirty seven by a search of England clergymen at the Chateau de Conde and France. And even though Wallis is now duchess of Windsor the title of Royal Highness is is not extended tour big deal. It is a big deal at something that really bothers Edward for the rest of his life. they live in France for the next two two years and visit other countries most famously visiting enormously approach They're actually honored by Nazi officials in in October of nineteen thirty. Seven and have an interview with Hitler. the pro German sympathies of the couple end up becoming the subject of an FBI. I investigation in nineteen forty one and also the subject of a later podcast. So we'RE GONNA SORT OF SKIP over this Nazi period civil jump the head nineteen forty when they're pro. Nazi sympathies have become so obvious. The Churchill has basically exiled them to the Bahamas. The Duke is now the governor there so they stay in the Bahamas pretty much for the duration of the war returning to France in nineteen forty five and they took up a life as members of the international set a very flashy celebrity kind of life that was reported in every single paper Time magazine named Wallace Simpson. Their first woman of the year. They'd only had man of the year since then because she was so talked about yet and pugs and platinum or how I think Katie I liked to find them had eleven pugs at some point and they had really cool names James Hemp and disraeli. Yes she gives them homemade dog biscuits and let them cuddle up on her bed with her She was also really into clothing and jewellery and were flashy stuff big jewels and lots of yellow gold but interestingly she banned Anything but platinum. I'm from her dinner parties I guess it seemed fancier tour and while they were very rich Edward in his later years became very concerned about at their finances. He argued with his brother about his annual allowance and refuse to live in the United States as a private citizen because he didn't want to deal with the tax of yeah. I think that's to be expected for someone who was born to be king and who was king and living like a case to settle for you know living like a very wealthy man instead of king an Edwards personality not just his fortune has also changed since the abdication he becomes as his biographer. Philip Ziegler says reactionary to the point of character even though before the war he had many of the same values as conservatives. Yeah he's kind of embittered heard by his situation and he's very dependent on Wallis to is the very dependent husband and as we said earlier still outraged outraged over the fact that she can't style herself as Royal Highness ran and she's not received as she would be usually so because because of some of this he only make short visits to England. He goes back for the funeral of his brother. George the sixth and he goes back for the funeral of his mother Queen. Mary and he even writes lights upon Queen. Mary's death to Wallace. What a smug stinking lot? My relations are never seen such a CD. Worn out. Bunch of old hag most the of the COM- so bitter bitter words Murray bitter. He's never gotten over his family's unwillingness to accept Wallace as one of their own the queen mom always hated her but her daughter Elizabeth. The second eventually attempted a reconciliation with Edward near the end of his life and he was very ill. He was in bed on the throat cancer and has doctors taken care to cover up some of the to bang machinery that he was using to live yes and he was told not to get up up because he was so ill but when she came in the room he rose and he vowed to her and she was very touched by that display of respect. So Edward Dies of his Bert Cancer on the twenty eighth of May nineteen seventy two in Paris and is buried near Windsor and the Duchess spent her remaining meaning time in isolation and increasingly poor health. She's kind of lost without the Duke. It seems an she dies in nineteen eighty six and is buried behind her husband at his request in the Royal Cemetery at frog more. Awesome near Windsor Castle. But that's not the end of our story because has several years ago right after the Queen Mother died there. Some new information came out that said maybe wallace was two timing Edward Edward during their courtship. Actually there's no maybe about now. He was so governor at papers from the time of advocation were subject to a thirty year rule of secrecy protecting detecting people who are involved and then some were considered so sensitive that it was decided they wouldn't be released for a hundred years but after the Queen Mother died died She was sort of the only living person who was very much involved in the in the documents after she died was decided the papers could come out and they it turns out that both Simpson and Edward were under surveillance by Special Special Branch of the Metropolitan Police and while she was married pursuing her affair with Edward she also had a third lover named Guy Trundle a married car salesman who lived in Mayfair and he was a kept man she gave him payments and also expensive presents and Edward had had absolutely no idea wallace went to great lengths to conceal his existence. There was a lot on the line. I understand so this puts a little bit of a damper. I'd say on the the Fairytale Romance and it also shows just how complex their relationship was writing. Biographies of Wallace seemed to either go the way of being really salacious salacious and gossipy or whitewashing the entire thing. So it's just a grand romance right and it's it's hard to find that that middle bit.

Some Hope Wildfires Will Change Australia's Relationship With Coal
"Despite some recent rain scores of fires continuing to burn across Australia and there is still a lot of fire season to go millions of Australians. Have already you've been affected by the unprecedented blazes and is NPR's Nathan Rot reports. Some hope this will change. The country's relationship with one of its biggest and most controversial exports Kohl unlike in the. US Cole is still king in Australia. The country generates roughly three quarters of its electricity by burning the carbon heavy fossil also fuel here in the US figures closer to one quarter. But the real place that you'll see Kohl's power in Australia is in the country's list of exports Australia. Australia has the largest share of traded coal market than Saudi Arabia has of the traded oil market Rod. Campbell is with the Australia Institute. A progressive aggressive think tank down under so we are essentially the Saudi Arabia of call and our government is desperately trying to increase Chris Alcohol exploits last June. The government approved the construction of a coal mine in the country's northeast corner that's developers had said would be one of the biggest in the world world a few months later. The bushfires broke out adding heat to an already broiling fight over the project and the bigger debate around climate change. The protests against the country's coal friendly Prime Minister Scott Morrison or SCO as protesters call him have sprung up in cities these around the country with marchers holding signs that read climate emergency and Co Wallis not coal in a recent interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Morrison said. His government will work to reduce climate warming emissions. But he added it would do so without writing off in seventy billion dollar industries mysteries on which regionalist reidents depend on for their livelihood that figure being roughly how much country makes every year exporting coal mainly to fast growing Asian markets it energy analysts. Say that demand isn't going anywhere at least in the short term but climate experts say as the bushfires make clear action is is needed right now. Here's Rachel cletus. With the Union of concerned scientists. We have a window.

It's not something that can happen without some careful policy intervention from the government. The question is whether that policy intervention will actually happen. A recent survey shows the bushfires are making Australians more concerned about climate change but a majority thirty of Australians believed global warming was a major threat so environmental groups like the Australian Conservation Foundation are now trying to help people connect.

Conrad Truman acquitted in second murder trial
"Conrad Truman had been convicted of murder sentenced to life and had already served more more than three years now. The revelation of those flawed police measurements had led to Conrad. Truman's new trial. That stunned everyone the Utah County. Da's office especially the man responsible for comrades conviction prosecutor. Craig Johnson. This is something that really took us by. Surprise is the defense. Says you know that's their take and they're doing their job to zealously represent their client. I can tell you categorically that. That's not correct. Just as stunned was the man whose team took the measurements lead. Detective Tom Wallace. What went wrong? How did that happen in the process of if Transposing numbers from actual measurements of the same to the crime scene program numbers just transposed wrong wallis admits the error are but says it was minor that Conrad Truman did not deserve a new trial. It's not that significant as they made it out to be. Did those incorrectly entered word measurements. Change your opinion of Conrad Truman's guilt should they change anyone's opinion. They didn't change my opinion. Nor did it change the opinion of the deputy district attorney Tim Taylor who decided to take on the task himself of prosecuting comrade. Once again thank Craig had been into the case for a long time so I wanted to fresh eyes go. I went through all the evidence and even with the medical examiner changing his opinion. I still felt that there was enough to go forward but we knew that going into it was going to be tough at trial. The prosecution's case was familiar. Starting with the officers who testified about Conrad's rambling often incoherent a description of what had happened that night the core of our case or his inconsistent statements. The story was hard to follow. He was jumping around all over It wasn't making sense to me so it was hard to follow. Those officers. Also told the jury about Conrad's threats He. He was telling us that we were going to slow and we need to hurry up where he was going to kill us. I'll kill you if you don't say my wife if you're making these violent threats to people who were there trying to help your wife. How are you treating your wife when it's only you and her long Taylor? Then tackle the theory of suicide by calling like witnesses to testify. Heidi was not suicidal in your experiences. Hide he's mother Was Shia sad or depressed person. No Oh I didn't see her. That way did Heidi's not knowing her father or not really knowing who he was that made her depressed or say no. The prosecutor pointed out comrades story evolved over time immediately following the shooting on the way to the hospital. Conrad insisted Heidi would never ever commit suicide. I think something shot or a casino never suit ourselves. He'd never suit yourself. Taylor argued that it was only later after suspicion against Conrad had mounted that he changed his tune up as for the gunshot residue. On Heidi's right hand Taylor called an. That's birth to say nothing. Nobody can identify shooter based on the results of this test. That is the major limitation of this test. Defense attorney Mark Moffatt answered by telling the jury that before being allowed to wash his hands that night. Conrad had pleaded with police to confirm. He had no residue residue on them cash on the edge has A. Did you wash your hands before saying absolutely not never washed my hands until they said go. Wash your hands. Comrades attorneys were working hard to establish reasonable doubt and the state medical examiner's shifting opinion on Heidi's eighties manner of death. Only help them. That's your case right there. I mean if he has reasonable doubt to argue a jury should exactly the medical examiner told the jury that in the final analysis. He didn't know the manner of Heidi. Truman's death by finalized allies the autopsy report with the cause of death as a gunshot wound and the manner of death could not be determined the emmy also testified how in his his experience a contact wound light. Heidi's is rare in homicide cases With the contact gunshot wound it would be consistent with a wound. That's often after fifteen days of testimony. The jury began deliberations. So you felt pretty good lead up verdict. There is enough there there. You're beyond a reasonable doubt. Conrad was having a much harder time. It was really difficult. Because why would things work out. If it didn't work out the first time you know what I mean. Eight hours later the verdict hole up your hands handcuffs no cuffs. You're not in custody. That's right this time. Conrad Truman got the verdict. He won't it not guilty just kept saying did they say not this. Grab my arm and he goes. Are you sure in the courtroom. Conrad's family shared tears of joy. I was giggling and crying crying at the same time. It was weird on the other side of the courtroom mile. Were tears of a different kind. I don't know my heart sank. Think and I was in shock. I couldn't believe there was a situation situation where that longshot happened. where he would be freed? Juror Brian Christianson said he and his fellow jurors had no choice but but to set. Conrad free believe that. We all pretty much felt that he probably did it. But you voted to quit because uh reasonable doubt. We had reasonable doubt whether you believe Mr. Truman is innocent or not those measurements either. Put an innocent man in prison or let a guilty man go free well. So you're right. The my opinion hasn't changed. Do I think he got away with murder. Yeah I do. What's it like your work? Call it a question like that in a way that ends up freeing the guy that you helped convict it's frustrating to know that a measurement that was inconsequential actually ended ended up Freeing him what's life been like for your family since though we're trying to put the pieces together for hiding righties family that is easier said than done. I miss the things that we had together. I miss the simple conversations. I Miss Surp- Sassine as I miss our wonderful personality she lives on forever in our hearts is left looking both backward and forward. I mean I do anything to take another day another walk with her. I loved her and I do love her. Still still you got a lot of life left a lot how you gonna live to the best of my abilities. There are jurors who think he might have done it but I had reasonable doubt. I couldn't vote to convict. God God bless them but there's a lot of people that do believe in me. He's made his own peace with with a simple truth. The very thing that freedom reasonable doubt could also shadow conrad treatment for the rest of his life.

Philip Green fashion empire crumbles
"The high street fashion. Empire of Philip green is on the rocks. The UK retail I king has secured creditor support for three overhaul that's involve rent reductions store, closures, and to having of the company's pension deficit reduction payments, but will this be enough to save the business? Mafia Vinson discusses this question with Jonathan Ford and Jonathan Ely. Tell us a bit about Philip green and his fashion empire. How many stores all there in which are the best known brands? So the empire was put together from two big acquisitions that have Sears in one thousand nine hundred nine and nuts of Arcadia in two thousand and two Arcadia is, of course, the one that gives its name still to surf Phillips fashion empire four fifths of the revenues a made in the UK and Ireland from about five hundred sixty stores and they're all so concessions in department stores like Dem's and in some branches of Tesco now by far the best known of the Browns is top shop which counts for more than half of the sales, but there are also a series of smaller brands Burton, Wallis Dorothy Perkins, miss Selfridge Evans, being the main ones if my memory of back issues of vogue serves me talk shop was until. Recently regarded as something of a success, celebrities plumber into be associated with it gained to catwalk shows, and green was the person who is credited with getting it. But high profile on that level of success knighted for it. How is this managed to go wrong? So there are many causes a knife fits early into two buckets, if you like one is the sort of external factors over which Philip had relatively little control. And the other is the things that he did have influence and control over now outside his control was quite, simply the competition, much better. So back in two thousand and five when he was knighted, boo. A fashion retailer sells online and we'll turn over over a billion pounds this year did not even exist. And there's a whole series of those types of businesses have emerged who misguided, they sauce, people like that prime has really up to his game, h and. Am has opened hundreds of stores in the UK Zara has expanded quite aggressively in the UK. And also consumes have become much more kind to dispose to ordering clothing online something that seems a long time ago now but if you go back to the early noughties people were saying, oh, people will never order clothing, on my because they'll want to try it on. Well, they do try on. They try on at home and send back the bits they don't want, and then the things that he has done wrong. I think he basically took a lot of money out of Arcadia in the early noughties then famously paid his wife for one point two billion pound dividend didn't really invest enough act into the businesses that week online websites in their whole logistics, regarded as behind competitors and along with many other retailers from the sort of pre incidents era, they're finding now that they've simply got too many shops. So now so Philip finds himself as you say, with shops needing to close some of them leading to. Have the rent reduced on the others. Under the so-called company, voluntary arrangement. Can you just explain exactly what a VA is? And why he needed Sarah CVA is a peculiarly British form of insolvency that basically gives the company a window of opportunity to reach an agreement with its creditors to reduce its payments, and his overheads, and therefore is obligated, and actually any credits can be compromised under a CVA. But when it comes to retailers, it's almost invariably the landlords. That's are they face cuts to rents of between twenty five and fifty percents on about one hundred ninety four out of the five hundred also stores. They are the very significant aspects of this sceviour is that there is an agreement with a pension regulator Arkadiusz pension fund is about five hundred million pounds in deficit and the company had been making annual payments. To try and close that gap miss reached an agreement with the regulators, where it will reduce the payments, and so Philip, and his family will make good the difference, and that agreement with the pension regulates. The has very important political and legal ramifications should anything wrong with Arcadia further down the line, they still have to close certain outlets which talks about top shop, earlier, which other stores are going to be affected, or the CVA all of them all the chain. So twenty three stores will shots within the next year and that seems like quite low number out of five hundred sixty six but the reality, according to people in the commercial property world is the final number will be many more than not possibly into three figures that's because lots of stores are coming off lease anyway, and because over the three appeared of the CVA, there are lots of opportunities sort of written into the terms for either the landlords author Arcadia to end Elise early enclose a store. And that has raised questions really over the future of some of the other brands, we know already, the Evans miss Selfridge are going to move to a more wholesale type business model. So most of their stores will close one wonders how long things like Dorothy Perkins Wallis and Burson might lust because there's one marketing expert said to me last week if these stores didn't exist, would you go out of your way to invent them to have turn this round, if east Browns are not long for this world, even if he's able to have a little bit more success with top shop is there really a turnaround strategy Novus, while it's fair to say that many people think there isn't that what there is is too, vague into threadbare. So we know that he's basically plan to invest hundred thirty five million pounds over three years, roughly split half and half into improving the stores and improving the website and the online. Logistics the problem with that smaller a to really hundred thirty five million over three years

The politics of chess
"Selection. New president of tresses governing body fee day was the Bishop in the organization's history with accusations flung from all sides of bribery, electoral fraud, embezzlement and a vast diplomatic influence campaign waged by the Russian state. Some Jane's has been investigating. What's happened? And he space John Thornhill about what he discovered. Sam you've written a wonderful Osco for the F T magazine about the geopolitics of chess and the fist fight to run its governing body feed given that a computer or a ten million dollar alarm clock has Gary Kasparov called it beat the best human player back in one thousand nine hundred seven why does chess matter anymore. I suppose you could ask a similar question about any kind of game playing in a way that obviously from sort of human point of view, something attracts us to the competition. The display of skilled because I suppose we could have designed perfect football playing machine. Had we have wanted to or a perfect bridge playing sheen, but it would be no fun to watch two machines play against each other would it. So we don't do that. And the only reason we're interested in watching deep blue play Kasporov is because Kasporov is there. We want to see him pit his human wits against machine. So I think regardless of the abilities of computers to handle chess. And by the way, they still on not perfect chess players. There will always be a space and a need for people to watch that kind of competition. And I think the interesting thing insofar as this article goes is that that's the heart of the issue. Really? It's about what games humanity plays with each other and the significance those games have. And chess is one of the oldest, isn't it? It goes back hundreds thousands even of years if you want to go deeper into history right back to India was of significance to rulers. It was a political significance hugely throughout history. Right back to the sort of wig chessmen on Lewis. You know, they were symbols of something that politically culturally connected a world, and for many, it still has that cultural and political relevance is still enormously popular as a game, isn't it? Yeah. Absolutely. It's something perhaps that in the UK, and certainly in some parts of Europe and the US as well, it might not immediately obvious because it's not a sort of mainstream sport. You don't see it on TV for various reasons that can't be much more boring than watching chess on TV, but it is hugely popular. And there was a yougov survey. I think in twenty twelve so even that a little bit out of date now, which suggested that there's more than six hundred million regular chess players in the world. And the interesting thing about it as well is that even if you're not a regular player. It's a sport or skill game. That has touched a lot of people. And a lot of people have played it on certainly know how to play I think in some places seventy percent. The statistics said from that you surveyed in Europe of people have played it at some point, and therefore know the rules of it. So it's got this sort of huge cultural resonance, even if we don't see it all the time on our screens for a supposedly cerebral game. The fight to win control of feeder his involved in extraordinary amount of low down politics involving as you put it small-time oligarchs and corrupt officials broking deals in Siberian mining towns and Islam theocracies. Why has this battle become quite so heated? I don't know. It's sort of an interesting one to explore. I'm not sure there's a clear on, sir. There's a degree to which it's that sort of old adage, which is often attributed to Kissinger, but is actually Wallis sad about student politics that the processes so vicious precisely because the stakes oh small, and you could probably say something of that about fee day because the amounts of money to run feeder on not huge by any means. Although the we're talk millions, but we. Sort of in fever levels of wealth. But at the same time, it's a universe of people who are competing with each other. You have a very particular kind of people that end up in chess obsessional, very intelligent people that quite literally spend their lives playing games. So why don't they do that politically as well? But also, you know, since the end of the Cold War chess has been in search of a meaning really because it had such relevance political relevance during the Cold War missile post, Cold War, period. It's still got a lot of cultural cachet and people obviously trying to latch onto that. And to use that for various purposes, but at the same time it's been a little bit rudderless until recently and a little bit forgotten. No, it hasn't had the direct attention of the Kremlin. Or certainly not in Washington. Anyone in power there? You know, we're not the sort of Fischer Spassky kind of matching Reckitt level of international awareness. Now, you say that there has been a revival of interest in chess, and blah, Dima Putin. Russia's president is clearly someone who is taking an increasing interest in chess. And he said once. Chess makes men Ysern clear-sighted. Does he see chess as a means of reasserting? Russia's soft power. I think increasingly yes, I mean feta is been run for the past twenty years by very colorful Russian national cooled kiss on allusion of. And he hasn't exactly been the best Representative of Russian influence around the world euphemism. Yes. Well, quite he's sort of said that he was met by alliens on his balcony at one stage. He's said that chess was gifted to the world by aliens. But he's also had some sort of quite shady dealings with unsavory characters like the Assad family in Syria for which he was recently sanctioned by the US treasury, but the new head of feet are Cardi volka vich is much higher caliber Russian recently deputy prime minister and the organizer of the World Cup in Russia last summer and clearly whilst restoring fee day to some degree of kind of international prominence and credibility will also be doing a lot to champion Russian soft. Power interests by saying here is an organization a sporting organization that Russia is not only in charge of cleaning up which obviously is going to have a particular importance in the wake of the doping scandal, which continues to dog Russian athletics. I think the other point to make is that Putin and his method of power his conception of power draws so very heavily on the Soviet passed in the Soviet experience of Russian greatness. And so the significance of chess is that it was such an important part of the Soviet conception of soft power and Soviet influence that even if ideologically Russia is moved on by years. It still has this important culturally that Putin wants to tap into. Now there were three contenders to succeed Ilyumzhinov for newest pushed out why did Volkova twin? Well, I mean, I don't think there was a clear choice. So it wasn't a simple case of the Russian candidate versus the reform candidate versus fee day has had these issues under Yoshino for longtime around mismanage. -ment around corruption allegations of bribery in the organization, and the problem was that you previously had a Russian Illumjinov who was very fake in his financial affairs running it. And then in the elections, you had three candidates as you say, you had a Russian who was promising reform, and it obviously delivered a very successful World Cup and had credentials for that. And then you had an insider Kyo Macropoulos who is also a longtime Lieutenant of Ilyumzhinov and therefore tainted by that. But similar Tena sleep. Also, promising reform rather unconvincingly, but similar tenuously also saying that he's not the Russian and he's not bribing anyone in the elections. And then you had a third candidate the Briton Nigel short who I think was always a very much an outside candidate and divided people on a personal level in feed because of his quite spiky comments previously and his long history of antagonizing people in your organization, he fell behind four kovic even though he'd been quite critical of him at the start ends. Then he did. So I mean. Nigel's point was very much that it was better to have a competent pair of hands running fee day, regardless of whether they were rushing or not than it was somebody who he felt was incompetent. And it'd been running it for the past twenty years in the form of Macropoulos, and there's definitely a personal animus between Macropoulos and Nigel Short as well that sort of flavored their relationship and at the last minute, he declared his votes Ford. Walk vich, and rather stinging Lii in very characteristic fashion posted on Twitter a picture of himself shaking hands with dwarf Vichit Simpson's in the strand in London, which is this story chess restaurant, and he captured it underneath how'd you say check Maton Greek clearly aimed at his opposition. How does Volkova which intend to promote chess? Well, I mean, if his last few months of being anything to go by then money is going to be a key element of it. So he's delivered on the promises. He made in the election by putting three million euro into fee day to fund development. He's also promised a much more rigorous oversight regime of. Chess. So he's mentioned that you know, every penny spent will be judged by performance indicators is no longer going to be sort of pushing money into regional federations with no sense of what it's being spent on. And he's definitely I think hoping to build on the relationships he has in the football world and elsewhere in the sporting and political world to sort of revive the prominence of feed in Europe, and the US the west in particular because I think they're really has fallen into disrepute, and there was a real danger for quite a long time in the US in particular federation, their supporters people at Kasporov in fact would split away from fee day altogether. So when I met tool kovic, he'd come straight from Davos, where he was sort of pressing the flesh with CEOs and politicians many of whom he knows, and I think one of the other things he's done is already tried to build relationships with fee for directly. He's actually friends with Infantino at fee for an invited Infantino to give a little sort of a speech for him at his election at feed, and they have already I think. Announced some sort of chess football events that are going to be held together in the future. So more of that kind of thing think to imagine

Except when his I'm Bishen got in the way, trying to use that excuse Johnson from having any participation in something as diabolical murdering assassinating the president of the United States. Describes. That you just mentioned LBJ. He was gonna lose. Be lost unless he did something that was far from compassionate sore. So they shut up. Henry Marshall the agriculture auditor by sending Wallis member Wallis guy. Kill Kinser back in nineteen fifty one. They sent him to convince him drop on it in return for which he would get a real nice job in Washington. Marshall said no. And you gotta give the man credit because he knew he was in a very dangerous situation. Got mad. Marshall beside the head knock him out tried to. A sixty aiding with carbon monoxide and they heard a car approaching. So like put him on the front seat of a pickup. Hoping to make it look like a suicide they use the only weapon they had a bold action. Rifle. Donny five times in the stomach. Three of the way the way the coroner later described it three of the five shots would have killed him. And they left him left. The by. Sheriff finds out about it. Informed and his wife just happened to work for Lyndon Johnson. Mangoes out there. So there's no question about it. They bury him that's one good way to cover up. Absolutely. Way, right. Unfortunately. The case was being watched by one of the most famous Texas Rangers named peoples who served as. Senior ranger until he retired. And then he became chief US marshal in Dallas. But this is where Johnson had to face up to it that he was in deep trouble. Because the department of agriculture. She still it. Shame. Honored Marshall for what he did. They were investigating. I so Johnson had to start planning for his own defense. Wallis to speaker raybird funeral. Meets up with actor who was an Indian native American from Oklahoma family down there. The funeral.

She looked for a firm, which was hard at the time or taking on new tried is what advantages did you see that? She going down the pro trading route actually is different to what I expect it to be. I initially thought I went back and looked at how blow my counsel. Well, it's pretty clear that no what I'm doing.

"Was up to me, I would fire this show. Amer and Nigel on ninety three WIBC Nigel Jason hammer sitting right across from me. MSNBC host Nicole Wallace. You hear what she said the other night hammer? Well, she's on MSNBC, I'm assuming that it wasn't something positive about the president. Basically, she said she told Jeb Bush that he should have punched the president back when he was then candidate Trump in the two thousand sixteen Republican primary race told Bush that I thought he should have punched him in the face this, even if he lost he insulted, you're later and call Mexicans rapists immerse. He said, well, what do you think? So I think you should punish them in the face. And then gotten out of the race you been a hero. Okay. So this was during the debates where the president was calling him below energy jab. Route tough-guy jab real tough guy. At the time Wallis, Nicole Wallace was working with Jeb Bush, and her strategy was walk over there and pop the old man right in the old shop she worked for she worked for Jeb when he was governor of Florida. So they knew each other and Nicole Wallace is the host of a deadline White House on MSNBC and she. Yeah. It's very surprising that somebody in the left would encourage violence very shocked by that. I mean is she on the left though, or she just one of these like Ana Navarro Republicans that hate Donald Trump so much. Does she used to work for jab? Then I can imagine she super lactates Trump. But she just totally mischaracterized. What Trump said about all Mexicans rape is. That's ridiculous. Jeb Bush is married to a Mexican woman. Right. So that's the whole point about him going punching him in the face. So let me ask you this. Let's say your Jeb Bush, and you're in a debate. And somebody says something about your wife, and you take it that way. What do you do? Then you take the high road and laugh it off or do you walk over there and tell them what time it is that certainly would have made for some great political theater. Wouldn't it got got up from the podium walked over there and just punched him square in the nose? I don't think I don't know that anybody.
Minnesota Timberwolves teammates caught off guard by Jimmy Butler trade demand
"Coa Leonard is you know, he's an MVP level player in the NBA. Jimmy Butler is an outstanding player, but he's. Level below that, and he's older. And I think the question too is this isn't breaking up in Minnesota because he doesn't like Tom tiptoe. He's always had a good relationship with Tibbett. Oh, now it's strained as this process plays out and he doesn't get the trade and you'll see become probably more at odds. I think that's starting to happen. But the fact is he credits Tom thibodeau a great deal with his development of player. Last pick of the first round out of Marquette, who went to Portsmouth and the pre-draft process was fighting to just be a first round pick and becomes an all star max player in Chicago, and the fact that if you're another team and you're saying he's walking away from Tibbs, he's walking away from this team. Could he do that to us after seven months? And I think that factors into your thinking too, about what you give up for him? One hundred percent, right? I mean, he that extension that. Minnesota offered him would be available six months after your quired him, and he's not going to accept, you know, four years, one hundred million dollars. He is certainly renegotiate renegotiate his contract. But as Minnesota learned this summer, when you're over the cap, you can't go about doing it and it would take gutting, you're going your roster to do it. And you know what I've learned is that when you go out and make these type of trades, you're always chasing that trade and you're trying to acquire other pieces to make that player happy. And you're really, you're really hurting your roster to do. So. I mean, I mean the the Darren Williams trade back in two thousand eleven in the year later to follow up with Jerry Wallis because you're trying to convince Williams to stay or your trading multiple draft picks because you're trying to convince that player to stay in free agency. And I think that's where. That's where the situation in Toronto with Colli that Masais got a good comfort level with that roster there with Kyle Lowry surge Bach, and some of the younger players Dhillon. Right. And then Lee Valance Eunice that he doesn't have to go out there and go out and get it Jimmy Butler PO. Possibly that he says, I can go to, you know, I can go to battle with these guys that when fifty nine games with Colli Leonard. And that's a lot different than maybe the team like Brooklyn who acquires Butler and then says, what other pieces can I go out and get to try to piece his player to make us competitive? And I think that's really where teams really get themselves in

I don't know that I've ever had a drain where I could actually smell something in it. Right, but I was smelling skunks. Yes, I was talking to my brother awhile back and talking about how well now that marijuana is legal, it's hard to know if you're smelling a skunk or you're smelling somebody's recreational marijuana. It's possible that it was there was a little bit of real life intruding upon your dream. They hurt you. Wanna come on in and smelling like skunk it was. It was. It was a weird dream.

That sounds good because this is a funny little town and I love it so so much. Okay. Well, as Idaho, that's we're gonna talk about really, really quick. We'll get onto a real subject. Okay. Wallace was founded in eighteen eighty four. It is according to Wikipedia, they principal town of the quarterlane silver mining district it produced more silver than any other mining district in the US. Wow, that's all it does. Is they mind for silver and there's. A lot of shops that would let you know that they mine for silver. Every single building in Wallis is on the national register, historic places. You're kidding? No, because it's I ninety kind of passes right? Right? And the way that they wanted to make the highway go. It was going to essentially decimate all of Wallace back in the seventies, they were able to get it on the national historic register, and so every building must be preserved, it's fabulous. I'm thinking what better way to salvage your town then? Say it's a historical place which it is. I mean, it's an all of these buildings are pretty much from the turn of the century in two thousand and four on September twenty. Fifth, there Mayor, Ron, Garrett, tone proclaimed Wallace to be the center of the universe. Precisely it is a sewer access cover on one of their streets that is the exact okay center of the universe.

President Trump citing national security concerns calls for a Justice department investigation into the identity of the New York Times op Ed writer to Brooklyn DA Eric in Zola's wants to erase thousands of low level marijuana convictions. Now that his office no longer pursuing those cases and three Nassau County democratic committee cancels and upcoming fundraiser in new Hyde Park after learning the venue will also host an NRA event. Now more on President Trump's call for a Justice department probe into the New York Times op Ed Bloomberg Washington reporter, Irv Chapman is joining us. Or what's the reaction to the president's call there in DC well at one level, it's a guessing game. Michael who in the administration's top ranks broke ranks to write a devastating critique of Donald Trump's presidency and his or her patriotic duty to keep the president acting and damaging ways from instinct and not knowledge the president of south is trying to suss out who's this? Most disloyal member of his inner circle. While the fake media's. He keeps calling him make the most of it. But the times op Ed was a one two punch on the heels of a detailed account in book form by Bob. Woodward of White House dysfunction of aids who kept tapers off his desk, less. He signed them and disrupt the world economy or world peace much of this has been dribbling out for the last year and a half in fact and daily exposes and there was an earlier book by Michael Wolff. Woodward had much additional detail and a national reputation, and then there's this op Ed and as much as the revelations by disaffected aids threaten the president's reputation. The greater threat comes from close associates who have turned state's evidence in court and before the mother investigating team, Michael we could assume already earth that the White House is trying to find this writer getting close at all. Do we have any idea? Well, one after another the president's top people the secretary of state, the vice president members of the cabinet app said don't look at me. And they've said it. It publicly and they've joined in denouncing the press for carrying this. And the New York Times for doing an anonymous op Ed contrary to most of its usual practice, but the president at the moment is just grabbing at straws interesting, the personality potential conflicts involved here. President Trump asking the Justice department to investigate this attorney general Jeff Sessions has been a frequent target of the president's barbs. What's the likelihood of sessions launching an investigation? Well, sessions has been his own man. And by his lights, and the could very well decide that he wants to do that he has taken other initiatives that the president might approve of but making his own moves in its own way. And absolutely refusing to bow to the president's wish that he disappeared. Irv chapman. Bloomberg's man in Washington. Thanks for joining us today. Thank you, Michael one, forty eight at WCBS..
