"Day voting underway for hours now Congressman Joe Kennedy looking to unseat long time incumbent Democrat Senator Ed Markey, and a highly watched race, BBC's Karen Regal is with a Kennedy campaign and joins me now live, Karen, I think, How did we watch may be an understatement, Laurie. I mean, I saw this race on CBS this morning. I saw it on the Today show. I'm seeing it on the evening news on CNN and I started in person this morning at the Nelson School outside Worcester. Because all those national networks will not decide this race. The voters here will and you've got Kennedy supporters standing up. The required distance away from the polling place and you've got, you know a slow but steady flow of voters making their way into the Nelson School here in Worcester, where Joe Kennedy was outside asking for their vote. I mean, the polls fluctuated shows that Marquis a headbutt! In the end, it appears to be a fairly tight race. It's a weird thing. Older voters I've talked to here seem to be leaning towards Kennedy.

A Conversation With Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey
"Ed Markey thank you so much for being on Latino rebels radio. Well, thanks for having me on polio. This is a great honor for me. You know can I just tell you this story before we start I actually met you very briefly at the Kelly's roast beef and you're actually they're ordering Kelly's roast beef in your congressman at the time and I said Hello I just that was just the first time I met you so so so here we are getting your on my show. You're in the middle of a contested race at I never thought that this this primary has become sort of a national story senator and I wanted to talk to you about. I. Think. A community that gets ignored a lot in in Massachusetts is the Latino community. And can you talk to me about your history with the Latino community I in Massachusetts and I don't think a lot of people know this. But I've I've talked to a lot of your supporters who are Latino elected officials who have told me about some of your roots can you just start with that? Yeah. Well, thank you for. The question and I actually eight, some stuff from Kelly's roast beefs afternoon. So you so you you know you you're on to me I love it. I love it. Yeah. Yeah. I I have confirmed that you are a fan of Kelly's. Are Continuing the tradition. So that's funny. Continue Center. So well, thank you. Well, you know I can begin with the work done for. Puerto Rico. In the wake of the of the of the hurricanes earthquakes that continues to ravage the island I worked very hard. To make sure that the trump administration is made accountable I actually flew down to Puerto Rico with Elizabeth Warren to play an oversight role in ensuring that that they knew that destroying paper towels at the citizens of Puerto Rico was not going to be acceptable. So I I did that and then I had multiple summits. With the Puerto Rican community, in Massachusetts, so I could hear their concerns and continued to reflect that in my oversight responsibility has been, and by the way those meetings took place in Boston those meetings took place in Springfield, those meetings took place in holyoke. Those meetings to place in Worcester. So I try to listen to the concerns and in addition I will say that listening to concerns I voted against promise the I know that I can I tell you one thing about that part. So you know I I am a Puerto Rican journalist I I'm I'm in Massachusetts I've been in Massachusetts since the nineties when you said that I think a lot of people miss that point in the debate that you said that because Pro Mesa? Is Not a popular legislation in Puerto. Rico. But also in the Puerto Rican community in Massachusetts and I do want to talk about other communities in Massachusetts outside of the Puerto Rican community but but let's stick on Pro Mesa why did you not vote for promise? You went against your party I mean it was it was a bipartisan legislation President, Obama, signed it. But why did you? Why did you feel that you were against promise of back then and and then talk about how that has changed you know it seems like you're right. I think history has made it very clear that that was the correct boat and by the way. My opponents casts the the opposite vote on that. Issue my feeling was that that we had to absolutely anticipate that it could lead to a hollowing out of educational services, a public safety services services in general who we know now the University of. Puerto Rico is in trouble because of that vote and so I, listened to those who came in and lobbied me on the issue on both sides. And it was there was a divided view on it, but I came to the very clear conclusion that. Big Mistake. To vote for progressives. So I voted no and I think history has worn out especially post. cameras, and the hurricanes that there is an absolute crisis going on in of Puerto Rico. Even as this belt tightening from this something essential control board continues to ham auditory citizens. So I feel very good about that though I think my no vote. has been vindicated historically.

Will Coinbase Do a Token Offering When It Goes Public?
"Big News coming out of this week. Coin base is exploring going public. Tell us more about this news. Hell firm, it is and how and when they Mico public. I don't know if this would count as big news 'cause. There's a kind of a Genera in reporting. You say big startup is rumored to go Public Co.. Of course there are that supplant we own point base is going public. Insist like writing things saying Robin Hood is expected to go public maybe this year. You know I mean there's ten companies you could write that headline about and I. Mean You know I. Don't WanNa. Be ungracious by thought that story. It was Kinda thin because I don't think. There's anything to it I mean coin basis is been rumored to go public this year for a long time, and is he? They're going to happen late this year or next year, so I'm not really sure what the news is here. Yeah I guess. You did mention I'd when we talked about your book. The last thing you came on the show so I mean just in terms of. White Reuters reported how firm. was what they were reporting in terms of like any SEC registrations or anything more formal like that. Talk to a couple of sources close to the company, and initially Reuters was going to try to run with the you know saying that like Morgan. Stanley had was going to be the underwriter and that's clearly not true. And them, saying there's a direct listing I mean. I think that could be possible, but I think the most interesting thing is can be what serve IPO. Is it the? because I know it went talked to fritters from recently one of the cofounders Aucoin base. He hinted strongly this some sort of token issue, and so I think it could be America's First Combo ICO AN IPO which would be super cool, so that's what I'm waiting to hear about. You know in terms of whether they're going public. Yeah, of course, they are but I think that part of the story is what's most interesting to me and so for that. Do you have any more details on what that might look like? Would it be kind of? You know I for some reason. I don't get the feeling. It's going to be the kind of issues that we saw in two thousand seventeen bio. There are these will. Does that have been happening the initial exchange offerings any details on what form might take. Now they're playing cards close to the best on that and I know I think as base has got more corporate a you know. I think there's a push Gillette appeal everyone does, but I think a lot of the people at the company including the light coders who work there are real believers in Crypto, and it would be sort of lame if they just did A. A Garden Variety IPO, so but in terms that regulatory part. That's hard I mean. Are they going to do a cell tokens to accredited investors, and then the cell general shares to the public, or can they get the sec to bless some token, and which could happen because we've been watching coin basic, really been spending a lot of energy hiring Washington insiders. You saw just hired. Judge Paul Gruel who's fairly prominent, a former federal judge, and then they have their former child council Brian Brooks went to be the head of the Worcester called the office of the comptroller. The currency control. Pronounced, controller I learned that. We should notice been our I should know by now. But. That's you know they oversee all the banks, so you can obviously see them. Trying to put a political lobbying pushed onto kinda. Get a blessing for this and censor the most mainstream crypto company. You know who knows maybe they will get You know they will get a blessing to do a token offering, but I'm pretty sure whatever's going on. They're gonNA cold. It really tightly 'cause leaking. The stuff is just going to piss off the regulators and could imperil. Enlisting so this is speculation. I mean who knows maybe they'll chicken out. Just raise the cashier ordinary way. I think a lot of Crypto community. Hope to do something more ambitious.
The Chess Grandmasters Extreme Workout
"I. How did you get on the chess? Beat in the first place? So I get really interested in these really need sports that. People are super invested in Ashwari. Kumar is an international features writer for Espn Lake if you're going to which. Of People Are Watching these chess tournaments that you wouldn't even know where that's happening in. Iceland. Or Finland, and so I had this curiosity so I was thinking so Bobby Fisher was such a huge part of chests in the US what Ron Labor is tennis. What Jack Nicklaus's to golf? That's what Bobby Fischer is to chess. Bobby Fisher of the United States will finally meet Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union in Belgrade Yugoslavia, but the chess championship of the world plus a purse of one, hundred, thirty, eight, thousand five hundred dollars, the richest prize for a head-to-head confrontation in any sport, but boxing. So who is the next Bobby Fisher? So I went to Saint Louis last year to sort of figure out what is going on in the chess world, so saint Louis has sort of become this chess capital of the country. Let's start with the basics here. What is a chess grandmaster? And what does it take to become one? Usually what happens? Is this International Chess Federation F. And they have this point systems so chessplayers. Lead different tournaments in accumulate these spines that. Gets them to a certain level of expertise, and they are then title the grandmaster, which is in fact, the highest I do that. A chess player can be awarded by International Chess Federation usually these. Players between the age of ten and fourteen, and so they go through these rigorous tournaments one after the other parents take them all over the world. And the get the title by around thirteen fourteen, and then they start to perfect the art of being perfect, just player. So you mentioned Bobby Fisher. Who is probably the most famous chess player all time? Actually is definitely the most famous chess player of all time. Who are the stars of the field today? The poster by of chess is at the moment Magnus Carlsen. Calzon is the best in the world. The youngest number one ever and no one can explain to you how he does what he does. It seems to come from another world, which is why he's become known as the Mozart of chess. He's from Norway. He sort of had this. Has this bad boy live to him? He's like interesting. He'll drop these nuggets about other players. You make jokes about his opponents. He talks trash social chicken. How do you not? He's GonNa do the same. Yeah the lack of comas is astounding. And quite disappointing. He talks acts. Yeah for sure sorta like that kind of Worcester wise. He's called the golden boy of chess. And then this. Is. Bobby Ana crew art, there's this Chinese grandmaster Ding Laren and then USA's Wesley so and Kara Nakimora. Really Good Armenia has live on Romanian so these are some of like the famous players at the moment that go up against each other all the time. So I the grandmaster that you decided to focus on with your story, the one who lives in Saint Louis is actually Italian. His name is Fabiano Caruana. Who is in? How did he get here? Fabiano Caruana is the number two seed in the world. He's an Italian American chess grandmaster. He became a grandmaster at fourteen years of age, fourteen years, eleven, months, and twenty eight to be exact, and he at that time was the youngest grandmaster in the history of Italy in the United States. E was sort of beg to be the next big thing in in US chess and he came back now. He has an apartment in Saint Louis. He lives there and he sort of boot. BOOT his life from scratch, and he was never like the big personality like Norris Magnus columnist. He's the guy that will is very chill loves video games and let us work to the talk to his justice stories about that call in the next Bobby Fisher like the next big thing. He's the one person that can actually dig down. Magnus, Carlsen in the world championship and become the next world champion. So what does? Chess match in a grand masters tournament. Actually look like. How does it play out? Okay so two grandmasters shake each other's hands. sit down across from each other is chessboard. This o'clock next to them that the are constantly looking at. This goes on for at least six hours right every day, and so during these six hours, the brain has to have most oxygen supply. Which means your heart is functioning three times faster than on any given. And because of that sustained higher blood pressure, and sustained higher level of activity by the heart and the rain, the body goes through intense physical. Energy lost during. A chess game that lasts six to seven to sometimes eat hours said.

"Sad that it's gone but you did really really an amazing job and as i was listening to you talk about it was amazing to see how you guys never stop trying to be better it was always he's like what more can we do and that's really important i think for players because a lot of the times it's it's like okay well it's all about the fans it's all about the money in coming in but at the end of the day it's really all about the players and that's what i know i felt that when i was at newhaven all that's really great feedback and yes yes i was just absolutely dreading this announcement on february first that we were selling the tournament after so many people players staff chiefs sponsors partners really you know gave it their all for so long and the notes on social media text phone calls emails i actually made a book of all the nice notes because i was completely blown away by them and it really helped me to recognize that even though the tournament was sold to china all the memories all the learnings all all the people that it touched all the inner city youth that had touched none of that will ever change that will never go away and that was a huge part of of saying goodbye so and then of course we got really lucky because we started talking to the oracle challenger series about possibly replacing chicago on the oracle challenger series and i'm super excited that they chose new haven and so in in our very first year of no connecticut open we have a oracle challenger series event ATP NWEA challengers so sorry to see the connecticut open go but really excited and grateful to oracle for bringing pro tennis back to new haven end so soon the week after it's impressive how quickly they pounced on the same area because it's the same center right same center were in use the courts of yale were used is that the bowels of the tennis center were not gonna play in the stadium in year one so but we're building a stadium on one of the courts at the tennis center hey hey guys so we're here with an wurster an amazing role model she has been in tennis for so long and she was the tournament director for our new haven tournament which was an incredible w tournament for twenty one years let's get back to her what's your role with that oracle challenger jim unofficial capacity or so you're just helping out i sort of help to put the deal together last winter and into the spring and then i'm i i think they call me the tournament ambassador her in press releases but i'm basically the go between between yale and oracle and the tennis sanitation connecticut connecticut which is the which is the one that the foundation that owns the tennis center and owned the connecticut get open sanction so but there's a lot of capable people that are taking all that and making it happen you know a little bit with player with with player recording alley risk in stephen arbitrage got married a couple of weeks ago and it was an amazing event and you you know there was like fifteen american women they are and besides the fact that it was really fun reunion with all these great players and we all had so much fun but i was able to they make sure that they all entered the oracle challenger series before the deadline and i look to the injury listen is like most of the wedding is there i just sent an email to allience even yesterday yesterday saying most of the wedding is on this list wow so networking and celebration of stephen an alley at the same time and so one of the best parts about the wedding was when i showed up to the rehearsal dinner alleys wearing this gorgeous dress in looks absolutely just so beautiful and she was wearing a connecticut open player gift from four years ago it was so fun it was a rewarding it was a really fun wedding it was so oh special and they are an amazing couple everyone at that wedding like became best friends it was like there was just so much love in the air and it was a wonderful wonderful weekend it's another big testament to you in your your career because getting invited to players widing is no small feat as tournament director so that's that's pretty cool to stephen always laughs that stephen and i knew each other before you TR of course ali played the dope in many times and so so stephen always jokes about how many times he came to me as a US ta coach begging for wildcards but we did we did we were able to take care of quite a few few american players including alley along the way so it was nice to be invited to their wedding it's it's tells a lot and it's it's interesting you you mentioned wildcards know that because i was just kind of seeing how the bronx open got underway and how they were trying to figure out all that stuff from the very bottom up for the first time and is there any i know everyone's very competitive tennis and everyone's fighting for their for their place but is there any animosity or annoyance when your tournament tournament ends and some other tournament starts away the bronx open came in that same week the week before the US open is a super challenging week on the w. t. tour because as of it's the US open and over the years more and more players have their commercial endorsement obligations obligations that we can madison avenue obligations that week or they wanna practice especially on the men's side but thankfully a lot of the women and preferred to play into form and in play tough matches instead of practicing so we were really lucky we had an average of five five of the top ten players in the world every single year for twenty one years anna cutoffs crazy strong like thirty eight in the world that he said the US open grew three weeks with their fan week and it was getting harder and harder to keep up with prizemoney is money increases on the WPA price is going up to a million dollars at that level next year we struggled with finding a title sponsor so oh so basically we had to make the difficult decision to sell the sanction but i really think that the reason newhaven succeeded for so long is because in this challenging week is because it's so proximate to new york i it the when the sanction was in san antonio it didn't work it was in atlanta long ago didn't work it was in stratton mountain didn't work the first time i've ever worked was in new haven so it was a great deal for the WTI in the US open to have player jobs you know proximate to new york players could fly in they didn't have to get in in airplane they you know we literally drove them to their new york hotel as arena knows when they finished in new haven and it was just it's easy you know the calm before the storm of new york but when we had to sell it was just very clear that the financial model no longer worked so the WPA was faced with take a hole in the calendar very important whole because as arena knows you have to have player job leading into the fourth and final grand slam of the year so that was a big they struggled to find a replacement tournament even at a lower price money level what we call international on on the WTI and so i think they have several cities that are interested in twenty twenty but they really need jobs for twenty nineteen so they were lucky that the bronx angst stepped up the on the n. y. j. t. l. board and the US subsidize it the w. ta subsidized is it because the bronx could not do it on their own and it's his beautiful carry leads facility i think like twenty courts and so it's great that it was utilized but the only way they'll be able to succeed is if they find some major sponsors so hopefully they'll have some sponsorship interest in the future a thing we were hoping that the w the players would have jobs but the difficulty in getting a commitment mm for twenty nineteen from other cities really just underscored how.

game and create this tennis ecosystem around level based play a we hear from parents and players there's constantly about how you TR is a great equalizer and creates opportunities particularly for kids that wouldn't necessarily have the opportunity so i just heard the story last week there's a single mom of three tennis playing kids and for the oldest the family sacrificed everything so money they didn't have and weekend after weekend of travel in order for their call their their kid to secure a college sponsorship scholarship and then number two couldn't afford to do what they did for kid number one so he wasn't able to get on the radar college coaches in wasn't able together scholarship or play tennis in college and then along comes kid number three who plays high school team tennis and his matches counted for are you TR because UT are recognizes high school tennis so this kid number three how do utah was on the radar of college coaches so he got retr- recruited for college so same result as kid number one but just way less travel travel and way less financial burden for this family so because of of this high school platform you utah is really making tennis so much more affordable and accessible to kids who can't go out and play competitive tournaments you know it's interesting because you mentioned it's way more than just a rating because we actually have bob moran on the charleston tournament director and they held a pre-qualifying tournament based off you TR so we've heard a lot about different kinds of events it's beyond just knowing what your numbers but you said that you play how did you get into tennis wide tennis what got you in the door and it was your first job i know you also worked for the WPA so how did you get this rolling i come from a tennis family and i started playing when i was probably four or five five years old my parents taught tennis as a second profession as will also has volunteers in our community so my i father would teach all of my friends and me on saturday mornings and we'd all have to play matches during the week because he recognized is that a lesson is great but you really need to understand match play and so that was my introduction to tennis thanks to my parents and i was a very avid high school player and did not play at school i went to a d. one school also probably wouldn't have i wasn't recruited i probably would have barely made the team but i basically basically decided that i i wasn't going to be a tennis player when i grow up so i was not gonna spend eighty hours a week travelling in training so i joined the student union instead and used my event marketing passions in skills to organize plays concerts in movies visa speakers and that really define my four years at duke university and senior year like semi other seniors i had no idea what i wanted to do you and todd mccormack the son of mark mccormack the founder of IMG walked up to me on the quad and said you don't know me but i know what you do here and i think you'd be perfect for my father's company IMG so my i had no idea what i'm g was i had no audio it sports marketing was i went off to spain invert doesn't appear to learn spanish came back a year later and bumped into todd and that's how i started it i am g answering phones and taking ticket orders in the attic of longwood cricket club in boston in nineteen eighty two next saint three and then so that was really the beginning within a week i knew i'd found my niche in life and i got a chance to work in the sport for you know would that was in my blood and that was so good for you know for friendships for fitness for fun an sport you could play forever forever so that was the beginning and as arena mentioned i was very honored to be named the first first CEO of the WPA eleven years later first female CEO of any sports organization at the time and that's where i met arena and a lot of other players and then when i wanted to focus on my family raising my children i decided to do something a little bit more consistent with my personal priorities and so that's when i went to new haven and started running the connecticut open at yale the week before the US open for twenty one years and now here i am in sort of a p w w three point zero with a technology startup out of silicon valley which is all about growing tennis and this this movement and groundswell swell that it will change the game because it's equal it's open and it's inviting i love that usa w three point it's almost like you've had like several careers in your life if you will i i definitely have the chance to use thirty five years on all sides of pro tennis you know the players side tournaments side the sponsor side might virginia slims days and then the governing body side to make a difference and grow oh the sport was using technology was just the river the chance of a lifetime i had one board member interview me and after looking at my resume and hearing about my background he looked migos don't you feel that this job is your destiny an and that's pretty yeah yeah yeah so it's an amazing team of people who were role all very mission driven all very committed to growing throwing the game and you know a lot of tennis players in a lot of non tennis players but we're we're really trying to get back to the passion passion and love of tennis about community fund friendship and really helped grow this movement and uh-huh i'm excited to be a part of it i feel really lucky all right guys you're listening to the tennis dot com podcast with special guest and wurster we're talking about her experience experience in tennis over thirty five years worth of experience let's get back to an with your new role what would you say is gonna be your day to day so my focus broadly is growing and developing universal tennis worldwide and spreading the word about the mission and how universal tennis is positively impacting this game and this this movement in this groundswell that were helping to build with you know thirty five years of relationships in tennis my focus is on industry relations and building partnerships with any and all key stakeholders in the sport and working with those stakeholders holders to to grow the game using technology and leveraging technology so that's a pretty big part of so- al have meetings meetings with federations with governing bodies with coaches with ATP and w ta tournament directors actors like the bob maran's of the world who stage pre stage pre ATP or w ta tournaments that offer a while a wildcard or even sometimes prize money in their communities in these you TR tournaments helped build awareness for ATP opinion and wsa tournaments and they and they also help to build a digital community in each one of those markets so lots of meetings you do seem like the most connect well-connected person in tennis and i've seen i know i haven't been to new haven but i used to see photos of you with the players and then i know when the tournament was ending people genuinely very sad and upset like i mean i think patrick credit for someone you had at the tournament many times a multiple time champion what were your relationship i'd like with the players and do you have any special connections or memories with anyone that maybe i'll listeners might be familiar with that so nice of you to say you know the entire career has been built on relationship building and bringing people together around common goals i mean you the new the new haven tournament in the week before the US open would never have survived if it wasn't for this group of very diverse stakeholders that came together yale the city of new haven the state of connecticut yale newhaven hospital sponsors from both the pilot of the private and the public sector in the the ability to bring those very diverse and unique stakeholders together was a real thrill for me and it meant that the tournament was is able to not just survive but thrive her for twenty one years so when it comes to players i you basically you know an arena conspired to this i always treated the players like business people and you know when we introduce introduce the aces program back in nineteen ninety five because players then were doing very little to promote and market their sport i simply sat down with them and said you know we need you to do more to promote and develop your sport you need to leave a legacy to those that come behind you're just like a legacy has been built the left for you by billie jean king martina navratilova and chris evert and you now whether it was the WG a patch that they had to wear or aces or any other new rule i was just tried to explain things to players as business people people and i found that the more you treated them like professionals more they acted like professionals when it came to having my own tournament after working on all these different sides of the sport it was very important to me to make the players feel welcome and i had seen so many best practices around the world as seen a a lot of not so good practices as well and so i took all those learnings and really tried to make the players feel super comfortable in new haven everything from you know hiring the best player services team i could possibly find in the world to i'm having a lots of practice courts to the best food to a very popular passport program where they ran around new haven even inexperienced all the world class international award winning restaurants of new haven to playing golf at yale daily gifts to just welcoming them when they walk through the door i you know i the feedback that we always got that is that players really felt welcome oh come in new haven lindsay davenport and then later patrick aviva coined it the calm before the storm of new york and and so we just tried to make everything easy and fun for players and went you know even those videos that arena just mentioned we had so much fun with the players whether it was the solar eclipse video or shot clock video players loved we would pick salient relevant topics topics we had a world class PR term not be NPR team matt valentine in for a long time and then katie spelman more recently and then we just did really really cool things with the players that resonated with them and then they would share and retreat on their social media platforms and you know just social media has made it easier to keep in touch with players so whereas recruiting used to be like a spring job for me it over the past ten years it's really become a year round job keeping in touch with players twelve months a year so that really helped with relationship building and i think the players enjoy having a female tournament director her and female who was married with kids have had a lot of players tell me i'm a role model and asked me for life advice so it's just something that i've always really enjoyed and treasured and i feel lucky to have the relationships that i have with players and and still do going to the french open in this new role was was a real joy and i had so many tennis players say really nice nice things about being cloud that i was staying in tennis because i i i did look at several opportunities outside of tennis what would you have done outside of tennis and just a little curious because it sounds like you are all in in tennis forever i have this void for it in my home office and i had a list of tennis opportunities opportunities that i was looking at non tennis sports opportunities that was looking at a non sports in when you announce that you're selling your tournament to china sort of everyone knows you're available and so there is a lot of incoming calls and interest in opportunities so there's a lot of fun networking with people longtime friends in sports and entertainment marketing i really enjoyed the transition but that was very clear that this universal tennis opportunity was just too good to be true so i even gave up on my dream taking a similar off but i did take my first summer vacation in twenty two years last week i went to scotland wow that's off yet this view twenty two years that's a good effort yeah now because when you run a tournament it's a it's a fifty two week project and those last three months are the most intense and fifteen hour days and marketing and public relations and social media operations operations and building a site and building a player field so there's just no way we had a no vacation policy and so of course even the tournament director had to abide by it i just want to follow up on everything you've said it must it must have felt pretty good on getting all those calls all those messages it must be nice to feel wanted when people see that you've done such a great job and had such success with a tournament they obviously want you part of their team and i can attest to new new haven been a wonderful tournament every time i went there i just i absolutely loved it so thank you and it it is.
