Atlanta-Based CDC: ‘Excess’ Deaths Soar During COVID Pandemic
"Centers for disease. Control and prevention in Atlanta says a Spanish people who've seen the biggest increase in excess deaths. This year Sam Whitehead from member station WABC reports a new report from the agency is looking to track the true toll the covid nineteen pandemic. CDC researchers say official counts of covid nineteen deaths are likely underestimates because of limitations and diagnostic testing an incomplete reporting on death certificates. So they counted the number of deaths that happened in the US each week from January twenty sixth to October third of this year then compared the figures to the average number of deaths that happened in the same weeks from Twenty fifteen to twenty nineteen. CDC researchers found some two hundred ninety nine thousand excess deaths in attributed two-thirds to covid. Nineteen. Hispanics saw a fifty three percent increase in excess deaths which researchers say is consistent with known trends in Cova nineteen mortality.

"Hi. I'm Blake chastain and this powers and principalities. The show focuses on the systems and institutions that prop up evangelical power and influence in. America and the world season one is focused on evangelicalism and Christian nationalism. This is episode three. I guess this week, our Sam Perrin Andrew Whitehead they're the CO authors of the book taking America back. God. Christian nationalism and the United States. Salmon Andrew are both professors of sociology and their work takes a look at how Americans relate to Christian nationalism as ambassadors accommodate. Resistors, or reject. Through sociological study, they have been able to quantify some of the harder to describe aspects of Christian nationalism and also discuss why it can be helpful to distinguish Christian nationalism from White Evangelical Ism even though there is considerable overlap. This conversation may also help you understand some of the people you know in your own life, how they relate to Christian nationalism and whether they can be swayed politically or socially.

"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
Trump administration orders hospitals to stop sending COVID-19 data to the CDC
"Hospitals to stop sending data about the Corona virus to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta from member station W. A. B Sam Whitehead reports facilities have been told to direct that information to a new federal database. The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC has created its own system to collect data on hospital bed capacity, staffing and the availability of personal protective equipment. Dr Robert Redfield leads the CDC. No one is taking access or date away from CDC having the fastest possible access to data as very real benefits for our public health response, the CDC had collected that data through a national network of thousands of healthcare facilities, but HHS officials say that old system was too slow.

"In Georgia. The total number of coronavirus cases has risen above 100,000 but Georgia's governor says he won't require people to wear face coverings from member station W A. B E E Sam Whitehead reports. Georgia has routinely added thousands of New Covad 19 cases to its official count over the last week.

"You are listening to talking machines Catherine Gorman Lawrence and Neil. We are again taping an episode in front of a live audience digitally recorded though on on talking machines. And if you want to be part of our live. Studio audience big quotes. You can follow us on twitter at Ti Okay. N. G. M. C. H. S. Or hit us up on the talking machines at gmail.com and our guest today for this interview on talking. Machines is Dr Terence. Annouce key doctors and thank you so much for taking the time to join us today. I really appreciate it Great to be here so we ask all of our guests the same question I. How did you get where you are? What's been your academic and industrial journey. You're also very involved in the reps conference. Tell US everything well. A wise man once told me that careers are only made retrospectively and I have no idea how he got here. There was no plan. It went through a sequence of stages starting with graduate school at Princeton in theoretical physics. From there when I finished that I for reasons that have to do with the field of physics. At the time which was a little bit more bummed I went into neuroscience so that was a post doc and then from there that's when I met. Geoffrey Hinton and had changed my life because we met him at a small seminar here in San Diego and set nineteen seventy nine. We hit it off and From that over the next few years you know blossoms the the Boehner Sheen and back prop and you know. The rest was history. Terry who you post talking with where you post talking in San Diego no no. This was a post doc at Harvard. Medical School in the Department of Neurobiology with Stephen Kofler who was widely considered to be the founder of modern neurobiology and It was an experimental post. Doc I actually recorded from neurons. Subic seventy nine. You mentioning physics. It was a little bit more bond a in some sort of connection modeling. That was also a very quiet period. That wasn't a lot going on it. Was this sort of age of classical. Ai Right you're absolutely right. This was in fact. It was the neural network winter. The seventies and it was primarily because of the failure of the perception. That's neat because you say failure of the percents on I read about that a lot. Do you really did fail. All was the men's ski paper little. What the mid ski books are in Minsk. Eighty books have killed it but was it a fair representation. Well you know it's interesting. I think that that's the myth that that book killed it but I actually think that there are other things going on and and Rosenblatt had died as well which seems pretty significant. Yes well He. He was a pioneer. But you have to understand that digital computers were regally primitive back. Then you know that even the most expensive you know the biggest computers you could buy. Don't have the power of your wristwatch today. Rosenblatt actually had to build an analog device. It a million dollars in today's dollars to build a analog device that had potentially otters driven by motors for the weight sums the learning. Wasn't it potentially because you know digital computers? Were good at logic but they were terrible. Doing a floating point is amazing so he built that at Cornell. Right that's right yeah Funded by the owner. Any case by by the time that we were getting started computers was the vaccine era. It was becoming possible. Do Simulations You know they were small-scale by today's standards but but really meant we could explorer in a way that Frank Rosenblatt couldn't so what you're saying around the perceptual and so just forbid of context for Central and sixty one. Is that right? It was fifty nine. I think it was the book but you know it was in that era of early sixty zero and so then there's this period where the digital computer actually wasn't powerful enough to do much and then digital kind of overtook and divinity but these analog machines would just now impractical from a point of view of expense. So you're saying it's less the book and more of a shift to the Digital Machine. That in those early days wasn't powerful enough to simulate the perception. Yes so I I have you know. I have a feeling that history will show that A. I was like the blind man looking under the Lamppost. His keys and someone came along and said where did you lose your keys He said well somewhere else. But this is the only place right can see. I was reading Donald BACI quote. I recently At the beginning of his book about the I which is just a fascinating area and I guess he spent a lot of his career and he did work in in the wool on radar and he was talking about the Radio Club. Which is these early Cybernet assist and the potential of the analog or digital computer to be what represented the brain and his perspective was he. He was sure it wasn't a digital computer and he wasn't sure it was an analog computer either and he thought it was kind of somewhere in between but it feels like that in between is what you're saying is that was the difficult bit to look and perhaps a police were able to look now. That's right I you know. It's I think it's being driven. This is true all science that what you cannot understand is is really determined by the tools that you have for making measurements for doing simulations in it's really only this modern era that has given us enough tools both to make progress with understanding how the brain works and also with a because of the fact that we have a tremendous amount of power now but just to go back to that early era. I think you know I once asked L. Annual you know who is at Carnegie Mellon and it was a time when Geoff Hinton was an assistant professor and I was at Johns Hopkins and I you know he was at the first fifty six meeting at Dartmouth or a I was born and I I said well. Why was it that you didn't look at the brain and for for inspiration and he said well we did. But there wasn't very much known about the at the time to help us out so we just had make doing our own and he's right. That was a era. You know the the fifties was kind of the the beginning of what we now understand about the signals in the brain. Actually potential synoptic potentials. So you know in a sense. What what he was saying was that we basically use the tools we have available the time which was basically computers but what they were good at. What were they good at? They were good at logic at rules. A binary programming. So that you know that was In a sense they were forced to do that. That's a really. WanNa come back to nine hundred seventy nine in a moment but this is an interesting context to that because of course. Vena initially was someone who spread across. Both these areas of Norbert Vena who was at mit founded cybernetics spread across both these areas of the analog and digital he did his PhD thesis on Russell and Whitehead's book but one thing I was reading about recently is there was a big falling out between Vina. I'm McCulloch Pitts. And it's sort of interesting. That Vena wasn't there at the I. E. T. in fifty six and I sometimes wonder was that more about personalities and wanting this sort of old guard to stay away because you always feel veto with someone who who bridge these worlds it. You know that's the fascinating story. I actually wrote a review of a book about Warren McCulloch came up. They were friends. They actually had had been friends yet. It has something to do with their wife's. Yeah I think the lifestyle McCullough was not line with its a side story but but I guess the point you're making which I think is an I'd like us to take us back to seventy nine and the meeting with Jeff is and I think that that's true. Despite the story between humans the real factor that drove things then was the sudden available at a t of increasing cheap digital computer. And no longer the need to do this work that Rosenblatt and McCain and others had done having to wire together a bunch of analog circuits. That you couldn't reprogram to build system. Yeah I think that was a dead. End It for the very reason you gave. Which is that you know you. It's a special purpose device. That isn't good for anything else. And and really if you're trying to explore you need the flexibility of being able to try many ideas and that's in that really is a digital simulation allows you to
"whitehead" Discussed on The Book Review
"Everyone knows that famous picture from the seventies of publishing heiress Patty hearst the one where. She's posed with knitted cap army shirt and machine gun in front of the flag of her captors. The symbionese Liberation Army. Jeffrey Toobin has written many books about the law and other famous cases including OJ. And he's a staff writer for the New Yorker and a senior legal analyst at CNN. Jeff thank you for being here all right so this is a story that I feel like we all think we know well or at least we have that photo of Patty hearst with the gun which have on your cover in our head but the details have become fuzzy. So tell us about the story of Patty. Hearst will in a nutshell Patty hearst was the granddaughter of William Randolph hearst though he died before she was born and In the one thousand nine hundred. Seventy s the hearst name and newspapers generally Had A greater resonance of power and Wealth Alas than they do today So she was very famous family although she was not famous and on February fourth. Nineteen seventy four She was kidnapped by she. She was just about to turn twenty Su still a teenager. She was just nineteen years old and She was kidnapped by a rag. Tag almost elevates their significance. I'm a very small crazy. Group called the Symbionese Liberation Army. She was kidnapped on February fourth And within two months she had announced that she had joined the SLA and her new name was Tonya. On April Fifteenth. She participated in a bank robbery in San Francisco. The following month six of the eight kidnappers were killed in a enormous shootout with the Los Angeles Police Department and for the next year. Almost year and a half patty was on the run with The the remnants of her group. She was eventually arrested in September of Nineteen seventy-five charged convicted of bank robbery for her original bank robbery Later had her sentence commuted by Jimmy Carter shoes later pardoned by President Clinton and she's now a living sort of the life of a wealthy dowager in the New York. Suburbs are any less summary but the book explains it all. Let's go back to. She's nineteen years old. She's living in Berkeley and she's kidnapped and correct. How does that happen? She's living with her boyfriend. Fiance Stephen Weed and three members of the SLA led by Donald de freeze. Who was the leader? Who called himself? General Field Marshal Sin Q. They broke into this very quiet apartment on a quiet street in Berkeley. Grab Patty Hearst Steven. We'd to his ultimate chaim sort of ran away. They stuffed Patricia in in the trunk of a car and wound up driving across the San Francisco Bay to Daly City. Patty was placed in a closet where she was held captive in the SLA tried to figure out what to do with her. And even what to ask for ransom because they hadn't really even figure that out and one of the things that strikes us now. I think looking back at this and there was this other great book by Brennan Kerner. The skies belong to us about. Can I tell you something? I love that book so much. That book was so weird and funny and strange and again an example of how insane the seventies were that to me was one of the real revelations in writing this book. You know I was alive during seventies but I was a kid the seventies were not yes and and and Brennan Colonels Book Was really one of the inspirations for me wanting to go back to that period. That's how 'cause that was my next question you. How did you get to this subject? The specific route was very clear. I I wrote a piece for the New Yorker in about three years ago about this gang and Baltimore that took over the local jail. The gang was called the black guerrilla family. I got interested in the history of the black guerrilla family which was founded by George Jackson. The famous prisoner Soledad prison in the early seventies and it turns out that the seventies were tremendous time of PR- activism in prisons. That there had been the Attica riots in New York but in California in particular there was a lot of activism for an by prisoners. The symbionese Liberation Army came out of that prison activism. And so it was actually my editor Bill Thomas when I was sort of boring him about California prisons. He said we'll book. But what about Patty hearst? And I said to. Bill will there must be a million books about Patty hearst. And he said we'll go see and it turns out right after the kidnapping. There had been a whole bunch of books including Patricia Zone Book. But there's been nothing written on this subject for decades so I thought. Wow there's an opening here and is there new stuff that's come out in those decades or were you able to get people to talk. Who hadn't talked wolf? There's not new stuff that's come out during the decades but there's new stuff I am confident to say in my book. Lots of it. Actually I Made a deal with Bill Bill Harris. Who was one of the surviving members of the SLA? I'm he was he. He was a tremendous pack rat and he had one hundred fifty boxes of material that he was about to sell to a university library. The deal fell through. I bought those documents from him and I'm going to give them to the Harvard Law School Library. You know after my book is out And there was a lot in those documents. Go through one hundred and fifty bucks. It was actually a tremendous challenge me you know. I had been dealing almost exclusively with. Pdf's with stuff online. And suddenly I had all this paper and I hadn't dealt with paper for for quite some time and I actually hired. My son used to play soccer in in Sherman Connecticut where we have a weekend house. I hired a couple of the soccer moms that I used to stand on the sideline with to make an index of one hundred fifty boxes and they did a credibly meticulous a stereotype recruitment tool here suggestion to like hire the soccer moms. Tha these women were fantastic in. There was a lot of gold in those boxes. Let's talk about the city's Liberation Army. I mean what is that Donald to freeze? Who was this really somewhere? Between a minor and amid level criminal most of his life was sort of radicalized in prison but really never had any clear political ideas. He came up with this word. Symbionese as a sort of corruption of symbiosis people working together he called Liberation Liberation. They didn't liberate anything or anyone and he called them an army. They never really had more than about a dozen people so that the name is Tripoli misleading but it is certainly has resonance in history. I find that when I talk to people about this. The first thing they say is oh the Symbionese Liberation Army because the name is kind of colorful and feel bad because they don't know who the Symbionese are. Why don't why don't they know they needed to be liberated? Why don't they know? And and actually you know the other thing about it is that people think of this is some sort of like a black revolutionary movement. There was exactly one black person. In the SA was just a freeze the others were sort of radical hangers on middle-class kids several of them from the Indiana University Drama Program and though the SLA didn't really accomplish anything they did have a sense of guerrilla theater which was in the air even even in Bloomington Indiana and that was a big part of what they did was sort of showing off. How radical they were even if they had no coherent goals right. Well the the photo of Patty hearst has tiny with that gun I mean that posed like what is absolutely classic example of their guerrilla theater was posing her in front of the seven headed Cobra which was their symbol in one reason. I think this story still has resonance for people. Is that icon photograph? The expression on Patty hearst's face is so inscrutable. I mean in the book I say somewhat facetiously but not entirely that it was Kinda Mona Lisa for the era. Because you can't quite tell. Is she proud? She terrified. Is She coerced is she? A revolutionary and that photograph which is so emblematic of the whole story was indicative of how much they really liked to show off which they did and what is her version of this. What's the version that she put forth in her memoir and has she stuck to that yet year and her version that she testified about it at her at her trial which was from day one. She was kidnapped which is a terrifying horrifying experience but following her kidnapping her version is. She was coerced to do everything from for the next year and a half. She was coerced to rob the original. Bank the Bernie Bank which is bad bank robbery for which he was prosecuted. A big part of the story. As far as I'm concerned is the extraordinary numbers of crime. She committed while she was on the run to other bank robberies. When including the woman was killed. We're she shot up a street in Los Angeles set off bombs in the San Francisco area. Her version is that she was coerced to do all of that. My version is that she actually became a member of the SLA and was a voluntary participants for much of that period. And what persuaded you that? That's what happened the scope and range and number of crime. She was committed also the way she was treated she was left alone. She had many opportunities to escape. She had many chances to simply walk away. She was involved with some people during this period. Who encouraged her to surrender? My view was given Her behavior you know I try to avoid the psychobabble associated with this case brainwashing Stockholm Syndrome and focus on what she actually did. And my view is in light of what she actually did. She was a voluntary participant for most of that period now f Lee Bailey during his defense of her that the defense they used was Coercive persuasion or so what? I'm curious about the the history of that versus brainwashing this pre-stockholm Syndrome as a notion right but had that defense existed and been used successfully. Did it have a long history and it didn't have a long history but it was established in law. Just as as a practical matter. Think about it. You know if if you have a gun on you and rob a bank with you know under your under the gun you are not guilty. And that's a long established principle in law and that was the defense that that she used a trial that this was simply rob this bank or you'll be killed two and so as a legal matter. It wasn't novel. But you had to prove factually that you were in fact coerced. That was what the whole trial was about. I mean the the the what was so interesting about her trial. Is that the facts of the case. Were not in dispute. Everyone acknowledged that she was in the bank but she held the machine gun. The whole trial was about what was in her head. What was her motivation? Her her intent and she was convicted and sentenced to seven years in prison as a result of that case. And did she serve? Will She served twenty two months? But then Jimmy. Carter gave her a commutation and then twenty years later. Bill Clinton gave her a full pardon. So Patty hearst to this day remains the only person in American history to receive a commutation from one president and a pardon from another And was that. Was there a lot of pressure I assume? Put on the President's by the hearst family and it was an extraordinary demonstration of the power and privilege of the hearst family that they manage to recruit Ronald Reagan who was governor of California the time to encourage Carter Tissue. Apart and local congressman. You had the African American community. I mean they really mobilized a tremendous Lobbying campaign on her behalf and there was an intervening news event. That actually tip the balance in favor of a commutation which was another seventies insanity the mass suicide in Guyana by the Reverend Jim Jones and his followers people's Temple which gave the idea of brainwashing wide airing and that helped prompt Carter to giver..
Author Colson Whitehead on 'The Underground Railroad'
"Colson. Whitehead's new novel. The underground railroad is already making a mark as a work of fiction that combines history and metaphor telling a story about slavery in America in new and surprising ways whitehead is the author of many books including zone one and Sag harbor and he's also received a macarthur genius grant and many other awards Colson. Thanks so much for being here. Shurmur pleasure so this is not your first novel. Obviously but how many novels have you written? And the last one was about poker this is my sixth and I have to nonfiction and last nonfiction was about Playing the world series of poker and having to bone up on a game and and trained for a couple of weeks and crash course in order to play at the annual big game that was the no Hustle Noble Hustle. Yeah so how did you get from the Noble Hustle to the underground railroad? I'm always sick. Like whatever style is working in on the book and the last book was first person a lot of jokes. I saw it as a humor book. That's tried to cram as many weird jokes in as I could With the underground railroad. Well it's fiction. Try to have humor in my books but obviously you can't really have as many jokes for page in a book that slavery so that so that was good. My last couple of novels had a ton of black dudes walking around thinking about things and it seemed Have a female protagonist and mix it up and never explored a mother daughter relationship before so it seemed good for me to break out of sort of a mode. I'd been did part of the idea of this scary you to brighten the voice of a woman example multiple her. I mean I think That's your job. I mean. It's Nice if people say oh you got a female characters voice and I just think well. That's what you signed up on when you pick the book and said as female character like if you have a plumber and Drain you go. Wow you were the UNCLOG that drain. That's why you call them and That's why he did it. So it was hard to tackle slavery and get into the Research and really contemplate and immerse myself in the horror. Hadn't only people walk around thinking about slavery in a deep way all the time and Obviously exposed to route. I was very young and studied it in college but I had immersed myself in slave narratives and a very long time and now that I'm older you know affects me more than it did when I was a teenager in my early twenty s and so I'm realizing how much the true ours was not to submit my protagonist in her companions to Dante and terrifying. It also seems that I mean we're roughly the same age that depictions of slavery obviously there was roots and there was a beloved but in the last decade or so have almost reexamined it and in a way that's a lot more fearless and visceral and that you're kind of fits in well with that Well I think You know taking liberties with historical record. I mean I'm playing with time. Once Cora gets deep into her journey but that first section mergers George. I want to be as realistic as you know. I can make it. Which means a lot of brutality? And it means impressing upon the reader the psychological tortures that they were forced to endure so for those who have not yet read the buck. Let's just talk a little bit about the the story line We start off as you mentioned in Georgia with Cora. Court is Sixteen or seventeen year old girl Owners didn't keep track of their slaves. Birthdays she has no idea how old she has. Her family has gone. Her mother has run off years before. And she's a an orphan astray on the plantation. A man named Caesar sold down South From the north he has contacts underground railroad so they light out to the north availed themselves of his contacts. And that's when the book changes I guess I had this idea that you know. What if the railroad was an actual literal railroad would apprentice not so much of a full story? Was that the first like one of the first things that you came upon when you were yes about. Sixteen years ago I was thinking. Oh isn't funny like when you're a kid and I hear about anything other little subway and that was like one little well actually on twitter. I'll search for the entire book and it'll be teenagers in school. Like Oh missy stupid. She thinks of underground wherever and as always like a couple of those a day. So I think it's a common Fantasy the notion and then I was thinking mcdan- to a story like what if every state Georgia South Carolina North Carolina. She goes through is a different state of American possibility. And so I was thinking about how each different character and the first place she ends up is South Carolina which is seemingly benevolent paternalistic place. Where a lot of programs for black social uplift jobs programs housing North Carolina is a white supremacist state. Where black people were outlawed and not allowed to step over the state line and so I was trying to sort of tweak American history to expose various tensions and I mean did you sort of create certain rules for yourself like well. This is going to be this part of me. Maintain kind of historical accuracy and integrity. And I will place these sort of discreet. What could have been or what might have been or what was then and not there within Georgia where we meet on the plantation going to be very realistic and traditional depiction of plantation life. And then the first gets the WHEEL ROAD. She looks up and sees a skyscraper and that's As a writer that's why I'm GonNa let it rip and have fun and go crazy and and the beaters notions and it's a you know. Obviously a big signs of the reader that we're not I think you know. I thought the Book Sixteen years ago and initially in for many years each state took place in a very different time frame and so South Carolina would have been like in this very stylized future place with with gene experiments and enslaves bread for different roles. And it would have been an fantastic. Gestures would have been much more broad and a sort of cloud atlas type style and so you're in a different world and the North Carolina chapter was going to some sort of fifty suburbia Myst- sort of Eisenhower Era America. That was the default for many years of the Voice of the book and a structure and then has to be read and as mentioned in the review. Glad to see it a hundred years of solitude which I read when I was in high school and had been an impact on me and I read it a few months before I started writing this book and it just seemed what if I just toned it down and didn't have to have these broad gestures ever sort of my default setting. There's a section in the book where she's a living exhibit in a museum and she acts out scenes from a plantation and a slave ship behind glass for the museum's patrons and I feel like five years ago would have been a ten page. Like huge like setpiece announced like two pages. It's interesting because I think just in the paper today. There was a photo from one of these museums. Where you know wasn't the Museum of Living Wonders but place where they reenact an earlier incarnation of America and you know and there were two African American people dressed up in costume. The first world's fairs you know often had an jungle natives and garb Dancing around to fit some some some sort of idea of darkest Africa Their various African pygmies were you know paraded For the delectation of American audiences you know once I decided not to make a historical novel and play with Time. Allowed to bring in things like that. Which occurred in eighteen fifty but were part of America in the late nineteenth century and the various things about eugenics and the Holocaust which I bring in. That's novel eighteen fifty but they ranked true and so I think another rule of besides concision was stick to the truth and not the facts and so There seem to be a truth in that museum. Section and where core funders in North Carolina that. I wanted to be loyal to even if it didn't actually

"Was she was dead but she really did die. I told her that plenty of times before but she never died. The twins went home with de la that night and back to school the morning as they resumed their daily lives in this new normal. Police were watching their every move building.

May Two thousand ten jazz and TASR were arrested and charged with their mothers homicide in audio recording from the day of the arrest captured this conversation between the Girls Jazz. They're talking about the damn bite. Marks has yeah. They're saying that. I Have Mama's teeth on my arm. I'm not going down for something. I did not do jazz me either. Has the day that you find a murder weapon with my fingerprints on it or something? Please do that. Please find a murder weapon and then it will be different for real jazz. What are we waiting for TASR? They're having having coffee and donuts and having a jolly old time. They don't care the twins. Previously sweet and concerned tone had shifted toward anger. It changed again. Once they were in custody suited in orange jumpsuits and handcuffs. They broke down on camera. Giving detailed confessions it started with a fight with Nikki in the kitchen. They said after they had woken up late for school. They were called her. Saying you're late for school. You're not going to do what you want to do. You have to live by my rules. Then she started waving a pot around in the air as she was going to hit them and a fight ensued. It wasn't like it was a fight on the street. Jazz said it was more like a fight until somebody dies. Tasr said that when she took the pot from her mom mickey grabbed a knife kind of turned and said get back but she didn't keep the knife in her hand. Still Jazz Felt Nikki. Was winning the battle with a knife so she picked up a red vase and broke it over her head. She bit me in the chest. Jazz added when she bit me she latched onto me. I'm trying to get her off of me because it hurts. I'm trying to puncture. I guess that I think Tasr stabbed her at some point. Jazz said she choked her mother with a medallion. She had one as a child. Her mother responded with a backhand stunning jazz. I think I picked up the knife and I stabbed her. They weren't like cuts. They were deep after the frenzy of screaming biting and stabbing they dragged their mother into the vast tab at that point she remained alive and talking according to Jazz. She said she hated them and that they would be going to jail. Jazz told her how sorry. She was soon after Nicky died. The sisters sat there crying in disbelief of what they had done then. They tried to clean up left school and began planning the lies. They would share with the police when they returned later. They expected to find police officers in the home and their mother gone instead. They walked back into the untouched horror. I just really wish it didn't happen like that. Task said I wish I could have saw something else to do. I wish sorry it was just confusion turmoil. It just seemed like it never stopped. I'm sorry I miss her SFJAZZ. I didn't hate her and Tasr didn't hate her. Either I guess it was heat of the moment and built up anger between all three of us. The twin said they wished they had found the police during the fight. Before it was too late they regretted not telling the truth from the start and they wish they still had a mother.

They were each sentenced to thirty years and separate prisons. Della continues to care for the now young women she routinely visits them corresponds and provides them with essentials and money after earning their. Ged'S TASR started taking computer courses and jazz began studying in the medical field. Their crimes committed at a time when their brains are still developing have largely been considered complicated tragedies resulting from intergenerational trauma and perhaps systematic failures. My heart bleeds for their mom and for them Dell told the citizen in two thousand fourteen. I can't bring Nikki back. But I can hope and pray that God will help them be productive a facebook memorial page for German Nikki. Whitehead run by.

Repetitive you basically dialogue options to choose from the way it works to the dialogue along options by my speeches slurring am drink from drinking this non alcoholic acid rain tasting alcohol so stopping the function home. How it gets repetitive?

Play is just clicking shit like You know you're on a tr your training and so you have to click on tiny treadmills to get your character character to run to boost his of so many times it takes so long to progress through any of these episodes unreal. It's really crazy how long it takes Are we allowed to ask you how far you guys went. I went through ten episodes and I thought it was done. And but apparently there's three bonus episodes today did not get through about a they progress through while I it took me. I played it over the course of like three days to. Just wait out all the timers because basically you asked three questions and then there's a thirty minute timer. Yeah Four.

And when you were like the gameplay was executing people from afar wow and that was my first add my first ad and I thought nine million times was for or another game is as counting of that or yes and it was this girl kind of looked like me with an old dude and she kept trying to save his life. But then he'd fuck doc over and leave her dead in the snow cheeses that one once so many times I wanna I wanNA know what this game. I believe. It's the same makers of this one. Oh well so probably another one with kind of a comedic tone. I guess that that's what that's what they were going. Forward would save him from Icy River River and warm them up by the fire and then he'd steal her sled and then she'd be dead in this. Jesus Christ so grim this is this is my first to add.

Although her attorney would argue her innocence a complex unraveling reveling of the facts would reveal a twisted murder plot which grew from infidelity greed and hate New Jersey case means new New Jersey near yeah figured I'm assuming she killed him in New Jersey. That's the belief yes. She didn't dump his body parts in New Jersey. I don't think now aw but the killing was done so I picked a beer called head high which is brewed by Kane Brewing Company in Ocean New Jersey Far Southern Jersey assist the shore head high is an American. It A in at six point six percent alcohol by volume pretty nice beer hazy orange colour. You're a whitehead some pretty lace aroma of citrus and pine.

That sounds Cilicia. I love that kind of beer. This is your Beer Jill. Yes okay. Let's open that up right away. All right lead the way why down to the quiet end in you can begin our story. Bill McGuire was born in nineteen sixty four in river edge. New Jersey the two older sisters his father worked as a pressman for the New York. Times and his mother stayed home with kids. A billy was the baby of the family family. He got a lot of attention. Here's a cute but very rambunctious kid now when he was four years old his parents divorced bill's mother had to take a job to support the children so she worked the night shift wild bill's oldest sister. Cindy babysat her siblings the Mon- Work Six nights a week so Sunday began to feel like she was a second mother to Bill Leeann. I think bill really looked at her that way even as an adult or you're she had a very maternal influence on his life and when bill was twelve his sister. Cindy moved out and married a guy named bill. Gosh he was an older man who was a pharmacist first and then bills other sister. Nancy moved out as well. Their parents had divorced and remarried a few times so it was very unstable. Environment Sir remarried controller yes back and forth while and Nancy would later accused their father of sexually abusing her too so there's a lot going on in the home sounds work so bill went to Catholic school and he was a decent B. Student. He was quite outgoing and a lot of friends when he was just fifteen ran ran away from home and went to live with Cindy and her husband and he did live with them for a while but eventually left after not following all of her household rules because Cindy was strict then after that he went to his sister Nancy but she didn't have room for him so for awhile bill lived with his high school coach and then he lived with the family of one of his best friends so this is kind of a hard scrabble life he had in his teens assurances. Just been a Roman around yeah. Yeah doesn't have any stability really not much now and we're not really sure what was going on in the home that he felt like he had to run away but it was probably tumultuous between the parents. I mean just the fact that they were together the not together then together the not together. I mean that's that's in stable ripple enough her unstable enough by itself. Yes absolutely so bill was living with his friend. Lenny and his parents and Lenny's twelve year old sister Marcie Darcy got a really big crush on bill so after graduating in nineteen eighty two bill joined the navy thought it would give him some direction in life leaving both his high school girlfriend behind and young Marcy. He broke two hearts when he left the navy bill made friends with a guy named Joe Rice Ace. He was another recruit who was three years older at first. Joe Thought that bill was kind of obnoxious because he was always showing off and telling jokes but then the two men eventually became close friends and bill was very well dressed and bought himself a Camaro which he shouldn't have been able to afford he would admit to Joe that he was opening up checking accounts in fake names and writing bad checks in order to finance the lifestyle that he wanted to live Marino. I got certain needs in my life. I'm just gonNA write checks. I think that's the way he looked at it and remember this is a guy who didn't have much guidance right and he he was really taken with having things that he had had growing up so not to make excuses because it really wasn't a good thing to do of course of course yeah but now that's what he did so in nineteen eighty five. I guess he's been in the service for about three years at this point bill's girlfriend from back home. Lisa flew down in Norfolk to Sam on a weekend. Leave a few months later bill visit Lisa in Vernon New Jersey but their relationship came to an end over well he was in New Jersey Bill. Marcy asked her out on a date and then he and Marcie gradually became a couple and kept in touch with pitcher yes so after Joe Rice married his girlfriend he told bill about how much more money would be making his naval marriage benefits his income nearly doubled after near his girlfriend and then it wasn't too long after that when bill decided to ask Marcie Mary him so a lot of people thought bill just did that to make more money. Let's the impression absolutely his buddies. Tahoe are almost doubled my income so bill's Franken. That's brewing right. We'll marcy was younger though she just graduated from high school but she was very very taken with bill and she accepted did his proposal and she moved down to Virginia to live with bill and to go to College Marsin Bill secretly married in a civil ceremony and then they moved into into a one bedroom apartment together nineteen ninety bill left the navy after earning his associate's degree from tidewater Community College Bill Dylan Marcy Move to Edison New Jersey and he started attending rutgers university where he was going to study pharmacology bill and Marcy moved into an apartment and both took jobs in local restaurants to pay the bills but bill is unhappy then he wanted to split up nineteen ninety two he left. Marcy surprised her. I guess pretty much broker heart 'cause the next two years. She tried to win him back but bill never looked back at Marcy. Who's WHO's dating new women again almost right away after the break-up yeah he had already really checked out of the marriage and then in the summer of nineteen ninety four for a friend of bills introduced him to Melanie slate. The two were attracted to each other and they seem to have a lot in common. They seem to really make a good match. Watch so a little bit about Melanie. Melanie Lynn slate was born in nineteen seventy two in Ridgewood New Jersey. Her father left her mother. When Melanie Melanie was still a baby and then he died a few years later from cancer. Melanie's mother Linda moved back into her appearance on with her daughter and Melanie's Janis Aunts and grandmother helped to raise her her mother. Linda can you to her secretarial job in Manhattan and that's where she began having an affair with her boss Michael Caporetto and that would last for years and Years Melanie grew up beside Michael Cap narrows son Michael Junior and and when Captain Aero finally left his wife he and his son moved in with Linda Melanie but it certainly wasn't the ideal childhood. Her doesn't sound black. Does it now so the kids would go along with Lyndon Michael when they went to Atlantic City Michael Junior and Melanie. You were usually left alone in hotel. Rooms are pretty lengthy times while appearance gambled Michael Senior was such a high stakes gambler learn they were often given comte hotel suites in room service for the children. SA- gambling really can be a serious addiction. WHOA course I've never never really known anyone that has it by Sir with sound of surprise well after I read about this I looked into some other issues with that and children and there is a problem in Atlantic City and Las Vegas of people just Kinda dumping their kids and running off to gamble for days at a time were very often read stories about the type of thing apparent has come the gamble and just dump the kids somewhere. You're gives them a few dollars. Say go under around how fine the gamble one. I think forget about their kids. They get so involved in it because there have been instances was reading about where children have been molested or even kidnapped napped. You know little girls using the restroom in a casino by themselves ECORSE. That's not why s- some horrible things have happened because of this so the only thing I can think is it must be a very strong addiction like drugs for people to leave their kids like that sure immune. A lot of these people are normally holly good parents but this is how Michael and Melanie grew up with a lot of that now even though their parents had some money and they were comps suites they were still abandoned on their own so they became very self sufficient these kids. I guess that's the good part about it. Melanie was really an excellent student and issue reached her teens. She was a beautiful girl. She had long wavy brown hair and a petite figure. She became very self confident and was very flirtatious with the boys at school. Some of the other girls disliked her but melanie had an outward kind. Mr Mr Personality too and she often took weaker girls under her weighing in offered advice on advice and support now. She is an attractive woman you you compare it to an actress. who was that well at Harry? I just mentioned that she looked like what's her name. Marielle and Muster Antonio Veterinary Curry something master Antonio Okay so an actress from like the eighties here yeah yes so she's a good looking woman and she had a lot of freedom when she she was a teenager so that could be a bad combination all this free of within attractive teenage girl she last virginity on a trip to Mexico when she was just thirteen eighteen years old because she and Michael Junior were going out to nightclubs and bars they were just on their own on these vacations so she hooked up with with a Lerman lost her virginity at a young age and then Melanie also began to gamble and she became promiscuous. She slept with older teens when young men who buttered gifts and took her out to fancy restaurants. She was almost like an escort in her teens with some of these older guys and she was his proud of it. She bragged about having affairs with two of her married high schoolteachers as well something to brag about. Isn't it on your teenage girl. You don't the better chance right.

I think it's wonderful I mean I think that that's part of to what my television show and what I try to do. In My my social media I mean I just just just like last week. I had a big hit on my forehead. It's still still while there's one new one coming apple my gosh. I've been wearing a lot of make us a couple of days. I think that's part of it but but you know I show that I myself as a dermatologist. Get sets and I think that's important to see because you know again. There's a pushback here because we're going to this end of everything being filtered and everybody looking showing their most amazing south and we are all we all do it some extent it starts to weigh on a lot of us in this people who take it very seriously you know they they take it very heavily so it's really nice to bring that back and say you know hey and that's the show does to you know people have these huge. You know one of the things I hear. People say more than anything else how why do these people why why this person wait so long. How could they have walked around with this or or we see people with really pretty common. Skin conditions like psoriasis that takes over your whole body you know or really bad acne so you shouldn't judge by the armor or that you are the skin that you were. I suppose yeah and it's important to show that because in makes us all at least hopefully it helps people feel better about themselves yeah now there is just an absolute slew of products at their for Acne from my own experience. I'm I'm beyond this now but when I was a teenager are the type of acne that I had was right on my chin mainly and sometimes in the crevices of my nose and it just get these giant. Whitehead's like one in her two of them and you know I definitely struggled with that and I found it was embarrassing and I tried to cover them up. They're just worse and for me. I I found that no matter what products I used the only thing that made it go away eventually was when I went on the birth control pill and when I grew out of it in my my hormones changed in your opinion. Are there things you can really do to get rid of acne when it's hormones well. Acne is pretty much. All all the main reason that exists is because of hormones I would say that it's two-part hormones and genetics genetics tied into hormones because he knows the type of skin that you're born with a type of skin that you've been passed down to you so genetics is more if you have really oily complexion if your parents have been more prone to acne. You're more likely going to to be have have acnes well. Hormones has everything to do with acne and that is why we get it primarily while we're teenagers because that's when the hormones are raging the most but also why women tend to get it more so than men throughout their life and it tends to be on a monthly cycle basis because because it's a change in our hormones and that's why medicines that adjust our hormones can help with acne. That's why sometimes people get pregnant pregnant. Their acne clears up more when you are on both birth control or also. There's another product called Al Dactyl or spiritual lockdown which is an aunt has an anti androgen affect. It's a pill that you can take to that also helps to sort of because all of us have testosterone on us is even females and so allow higher level that can certainly cause a more of a breakout actually especially in the Chin area and you're like the mandible distribution so that's why why we have medicines that actually specifically target and they do work well. We're I mean obviously there's so many medications out there and

American Carnage: a masterful must-read on Trump's Republican takeover
What happens when the local hospital shuts down?
"According to the good people at the government, accountability office about a dozen rural hospitals in this country. Shut down every year just close as about twice the number that was closing a decade ago and more than three quarters of them are in the south losing a hospital like that can put a town as well as the health of its residents in peril. Of course. So from W A B M Whitehead takes us to one Georgia community that found an alternative back in two thousand sixteen gilmer County Georgia had a problem the hospital in the community, eighty miles north of Atlanta, and the Appalachian foothills was closing the hospital wasn't admitting enough patience and filling enough beds. Charlie Paris that chair of the county commission says people took the closure hard. It was seen as a very tragic situation, very emergency type situation. Paris worried less access to medical care would scare away people in businesses that were thinking of moving to the area. Usually, they're their first question is show me your hospital. We were concerned about you know, how are we going to respond to that by one count more than one hundred rural hospitals have closed their doors since twenty ten says Erica Rogan with the American hospital association. They just don't have as many patients coming through the door as other geographic areas may have. And so that can be problematic. When payment for their services is based on volume of care for gilmer county residents. The next best option was a hospital about twenty miles down the road. Denise Ray runs. Piedmont mountainside hospital. She says her facility felt it when the one in gilmer county closed our emergency room was slammed. So he just really felt like we didn't have the capacity to to manage everything that was coming through ran or colleagues saw an opportunity in the closing hospital. My opening an emergency room there. They could take pressure off their ER and hold onto their market share. In gilmer county. We were already serving a say thirty five forty percent of the market to hold onto those patients. They'd have to beat any potential competitors. To the punch if a different facility had opened their they might have changed for. They were receiving services. Says Piedmont spent two point two million dollars building a modern emergency room, the ER opened about a year after the old hospital closed, and is the first of its kind in the state of Georgia county Commissioner Charlie Peres says residents weren't sold on the idea at first we are not real wild about being the first to adopt anything two years in the ER has been well received by residents and business. Leaders says page green who rents the gilmer chamber of commerce. She says communities have to move past the notion that every small town needs its own full service hospital, and the reality is that if you're paying attention to what's happening in the healthcare space. We have to accept the those days are probably behind us on a recent afternoon. Only a few of the ers eight beds are filled the facility sees about thirty three patients a day. Denise Ray says both ers the standing one and the one at Piedmont mountainside offer, essentially the same services. We have to be J C T scans. We have to be able to have respiratory services, and nurses. You've got to have access to s in order to transport a patient from here to the hospital. Other shows it's not uncommon to have to transfer patients who need more care that happens about six percent of the time. Doctor Tom win says that's the only real difference. He's noticed from the other ers where he's worked the challenges probably transferring patient because you know, auto patient that needs to be admitted they have to be translating. We'll have any of those folks for now, the freestanding ER isn't losing money hospital. Administrators say they're covering their costs. And can even see expanding it in the future, depending on what the community needs. And what it can't support
Replacement anxiety: White supremacist terrorism
"Zealand has spent the weekend morning. Fifty people who killed when a white supremacist gunman. Open fire. It two mosques during Friday prayers. Dozens more still in a critical condition in hospital cabinet today. Made in principle decisions around the reform of our gun laws. Prime minister descendant spoke to journalists today after meeting with cabinet to discuss changing gun control laws. This alternate means that within ten days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms, which will I believe make L community safer. Almost all weapons about ninety four percent of New Zealand's weapons on registered Illinois Whitehead is reporting from New Zealand for the economist makes an outlier kind of almost anywhere in the western world apart from the United States. So that means that you can kind of stockpile weapons. Brenton Tarrant had a license wasn't a prior offender. He wasn't police watch less that he was able to get a gun license and he owned semi automatic weapons. He was able to procure legally. So the question was clearly raised that he picked New Zealand naught, Australia because of the more permissive environment because it was easier for him to procure the weapons Boutros dues. Also, put a spotlight on white supremacists. As the prime minister knowledged on Friday, the attack through questions about how security agencies had failed spot a man who written extensively online about his beliefs and his intentions community and police focused on extremism of every kind give. Global indicators around five right extremism. Our intelligence community has been steeping up their investigations in this area. The individual charge with mood it head not come to the attention of the intelligence community, nor the police for extremism the man accused of the shooting a twenty eight year old named Brinton Harrison Tarrant appeared in court on Saturday. He's a stray leeann the judge route one murder charge and said Moore would likely follow. Meanwhile, people gathered across New Zealand to remember the victims. A massive outpouring public grief and sympathy. So you've had vigils of being held here and across the country. I was in Christ Church today where there was a vigil organized by some school-children secondary school children outside the larger of the two mosques that was attacked the one where most of the casualties were sustained the people. I'm speaking to just saying where the attacker had had clearly wanted to drive a wedge between the Muslim community and the white community of New Zealand. He's he's kind of achieved exactly the opposite of that before the shooting. No did people think that Australia New Zealand how to program with white supremacism yet? Look in easy Lund's. I think less people are sort of saying again, and again that they are surprise. There is some members of the Muslim community say yes on detains of Islam. Phobia and racism have been rising. But for the most part, they say, you know, what this is this is actually a very tolerant, very harmonious almost uniquely hunt. How many society, but Australia is very different. And I think that those of racism and Islam have become much more prevalent in public culture over the last two decades, the most the most obvious one is pulling Hanson. He's. A Senate to one nation, which is a populous party in Australia, and she's kind of complaining constantly about tax on western civilization about anti white racism, clearly invoking, the sort of nationalist white supremacists. Kind of language. She moved a motion in the parliament last year, which stated that it's okay to be white. There's another Senator in independent who cooled in his maiden speech in parliament for a final solution to immigration, so Nova some pretty extreme anti immigrant rhetoric in Australian politics, but there's a big difference between that and going into a mosque. Yes. It is. Indeed. But these people studying the far-right say that they believe what's happening is essentially, these fringe groups, and there's a diffuse number of kind of NIA Nasi, ethnic, nationalist, white supremacist groups in Australia, which do remain fringe up. But they have been. Legitimized to degree by this kind of discourse. And by the discourse in some of the conservative media was the next up in the police investigation and then presumably trial. So Brenton town has been charged with one count of murder. He's he's going to appear again before court in April, April the fifth where he faces where the question is. I was what's up more other charges will be brought against him because they will at theoretically, he could face fifty counts of murder because that is the death toll at the moment. Fifty other could still rise. He could also be charged with acts of terrorism clearly any of those could carry life sentences. Eleanor. Thank you. Thanks, john. The long screed against immigrants posted by the gunman online before the attack part of which was live streamed to viewers underlines the importance of social networks in radicalizing people and spreading hateful ideas. Violent. Wait extremists. Usa be distributed. Among small fringe, white supremacist groups that were actually organized fringe political organizations. Matt stained glass is reporting on far-right extremism for the economist. More recently white supremacist, violent ideology is more matter of diffuse chat rooms on the internet and people getting interested ideas, and it's less matter of actual organized groups that can be clearly tracked by law enforcement about can you tell us a bit about the manifesto, the shoot published and also the medium it was published on. I mean on the one hand you don't want to give too much publicity to this stuff on the other hand. It's kind of hard to understand his. Nation without looking at it. I think it's exactly right that you don't want to do the terrorist job for him by repeating his manifesto. But the ideas that are in it are so central to the current white supremacist movement that you really need to understand something about them to understand why he engaged in terrorism engaged in the titled has been festival the great replacement, and that is an idea that's been kicking around since the nineteen seventies. But his gained a lot of currency read recently that immigration to Europe and to white western countries by people from non western backgrounds isn't just a matter of people immigrating for their own reasons for economic reasons, but as part of the giant plot to replace white people with people of other races. It's very panicky paranoid conspiratorial way of you in the world, and it gives the white supremacists and excuse to engage in violence because allow. Them to picture people of other races who are moving to western countries as invaders need to be stopped. I haven't read seventy four pages of the manifesto, but the bits I've have read remind me quite a lot of the manifesto Dylann roof shooter in South Carolina in twenty fifteen who shot wash oppose the mother Emmanuel church boasted, very similar ideas about whites being replaced. Yeah. There are a lot of Larry's between what the New Zealand shooter road, and what road and also under spry in Norway road, and that coherence is possibly the most troubling thing about the ideas behind this attack. There's a common playbook available now to everybody in the global white supremacist movement. And these ideas are just at hand for anybody who wants to wants an excuse to pick up a gun and engage in political violence is it possible. Say anything meaningful about how wide spread this problem is from almost from police. Point of view. I mean on the one hand presumably, the number of people who prepared to take up and shoot total strangers for some crackpot theory is relatively small, but on the other hand, this shoot seems to spend a lot of time on web forums where these kind of ideas discussed whether a lot of people the scale of violent rightwing extremism is smaller than the scandal Islam extremism, but the unpredictable nature those attacks as as you say is what's troubling? There's a terrorism expert in Germany who has comp with an idea Daniel Kohler who's come up with an idea called high of terrorism, which is the sense that there are people lurking on chat groups, and you never know which of them is suddenly going to get it into his head that he ought to stop just saying nasty things on the internet and go out and take action, unquote. Which is exactly what this played out. If you look at the chats. Were going on on a chan- this board that he was frequenting he characterized as the moment to stop talking and start doing something. And I think there's a sense among security experts that the problem with this with this current type of white supremacist terrorism. Is you can't predict who is just out there saying obnoxious nonsense on the internet, and who might eventually actually go out and do something about
NFL Trade Rumors and Buzz
"And they're like what is the buzz about here? And I was like we'll Cuyler Murray's Wayne, but he's not even gonna test. Yeah, there there isn't mother isn't a there isn't one specific thing that people are really buzzing about I think there's a several position groups that are really interesting. I think the offensive linemen and the receivers have some really interesting players receivers, particularly there's like the whole spectrum of type of players. I mean, you've got decay Metcalf. You've got I came and then he got Markey's Brown, and like smaller shifty guys you've got AJ Brown who looks like a running back playing receiver. There's just all kinds of guys in. So there there's a lot of I think if you're if you're gonna say there's buzzer excitement about anything. It's it's watching receivers as watching the offensive lineman, obviously defensive lineman is going to be huge this week. Oh. Ed oliver. I think that was actually kind of an interesting thing this morning, he weighed in I think it to eighty seven. So that was a good way for him. That's plenty. Yeah. That's like more than what Aaron Donald waiting now. Obviously that's a comparison. That happens a lot. I don't think he's earned Donald. But he's a very good player very explosive and being at two eighty seven is a very good number for him. We'll see how he tests. I think that he over the next few days he could generate a lot of buzz of among the receivers. Is there anybody that you particularly like, it's just one of your guys? I think you came about a starting to he started to I I mean, I'm standing out to you a little bit. As things you've said to me in tweeted, I'm reticent to say, he's my guy because I there are worries with him in terms of drops and his like, he's just massively few look at his web chart on. Oh credible through the measurements. It's just he's like ninety eight th percentile in every day. Big, man. I think actually I heard that he set the record for wingspan at receiver position at the combine almost eighty four inch got. Yeah. So he's got an insane catch radius. I'm a little worried about like. You know, his ability to separate his his consistency as a catcher, but he has immense upside I'll put it that way like his ability to get behind. The defense is really good. He's really long strider really fast. So I wouldn't necessarily say he's like, you know, my pound the table guy. But I do like him a lot. I'm really interested to see how akilah Harry runs think. He's just kind of one of those guys that's really polarizing right now because we're from Arizona state. He he's a guy that is like really big physical super productive. But he's also sort like, there's he's kind of in the alshon Jeffery shor mold where you're like Kenny separate or is he gonna have to only sorta use his body in wind contested catches and things like that. I think he's going to be really interesting. The Stanford guy JJ JR Sega white said Whitehead is really interesting player. He's like form basketball player box out king.
