The World's Highest-Dwelling Mammal Lives Atop a Volcano
"In twenty thirteen to mountaineers were nearing the top of Vulcan Judy Jayco a twenty two thousand foot tall volcano on the border of Chile and Argentina. When they saw something unexpected, just two thousand feet below the summit climbers spotted a mouse scurrying across the snow. It's really a remarkable citing his known expected wild mammals to be living at an elevation of over twenty thousand feet. At that elevations that the scarcity of oxygen oxygen that makes it really a challenging. Place to to survive in function. But then also just the extreme cold, it's an extremely inhospitable environment J. Starts and evolutionary biologist at the University of Nebraska. The climbers reached out to starts because he studies how animals adapt to high altitudes and he was so intrigued that he decided to make his own trip to survey the area starts and his colleagues spent a month that Jews Zhigo earlier this year where they confirmed with the climber saw they found mice everywhere including on the summit officially setting a new record for the world's highest dwelling. Mammal. Start says, the summit citing was fortuitous, his climbing partner Mario Perez, Mamani saw the mouse dive under a rock just starts made it to the top exhausted and groggy from the thin air. It took starts a minute together his wits, but he eventually managed to catch the mouse with his hands starts collected that mouse and others as museum specimens that will enable future scientific analysis. They also their encounter on video. The report is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences now that he's home starts wants to understand how these mice can survive in such harsh conditions, and conversely what prevents other animals from venturing. So high clearly the the device that are living these extreme altitudes. Have physiological capacities that are very different from your typical rodent. He and his colleagues are comparing the genomes of the mice from Judea Jayco to their lowland relatives to see if they can identify the animals high altitude adaptations. He's curious whether they have evolved some of the same strategies as mice that live at high elevations, in north, America in the Himalayas. Starts also wants to know how mice are finding food on top of a barren rocky volcano thousands of feet above the highest green plants. On his next trip, he plans to analyze the stomach contents of the animals, the capture. It's really an open question to whether most species are whether they're elevation limit is set by physiological tolerance or just the lack of ecological opportunity. It's probably a combination of both whenever the answer starts suspects, there may be more high altitude animals out there than scientists thought, it's just a matter of climbing high enough to find them

Ethnic Studies: Born in the Bay Area From History's Biggest Student Strike
"Legislation earlier this summer that would require all incoming freshman at Cal State universities to taken ethnic studies class listener. Michael Variety asked our Bay curious team this question I've heard that there was actually a revolution in the Bay Area for an ethnic studies field. Is this true? And how did it happen? The short answer. Yes, it's true. Reporter assault A sonnet. Poor tells us how it went down during the longest student strike in US history. It was November of 1968. The US was 13 years into the Vietnam War. American soldiers hiking their way through the sweaty jungles of South Vietnam, searching for enemy Martin Luther King had been assassinated earlier that year, and the Black Panther Party demanded systemic change for black communities plagued by poverty and police brutality. That's what black students at San Francisco State wanted to bury. Proves to be a member ofthe last. This is Nesbitt Crutchfield. He started studying at San Francisco State in 1967 and soon joined the black student union. It was the very 1st 1 in the country. It was very clear to me that Black soon Union representative. Very progressive. Among black spoons at state among black students in the very but just a small percentage of black students went to SF State admission rates for minority students had dwindled down to just 4%. Even those 70% of students in the SF Unified School District for from minority backgrounds is a black person you expected for all intensive purposes. To be one of the very few black people in whatever classroom laboratory auditorium. The U. N was overwhelmingly white. Amidst that whiteness black students were hungry to study their own history. The black student union had been pushing the university to create a black studies department for nearly three years. But administrators resisted the idea. was an era of young people asking questions and want to transform their communities. Jason Ferreira is a professor in the Department of Race and Resistance at San Francisco State College of ethnic studies. And that impulse that That hunger to transform one's communities is actually what forms the basis of ethnic studies. It's around this time that Penny no. Okatsu was grappling with her own questions about race and identity. We want Asian Americans, then we were Orientals. An Oriental is a term that was imposed on us by the largest society, so starting to use the term Asian American was a way of taking back er. Our own destiny. Henny became a member of a student organization called the Asian American Political Alliance. It was just one of many ethnic student organizations popping up on campus and an early fall of 1968. These organizations banded together in formed a coalition, the Third World Liberation Front. And at that particular time, third world referred to the Non Aligned Countries are cultures in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It was synonymous with how we might use people of color today. English professor and Black Panther. George Murray was one of San Francisco state's most influential anti Vietnam organizers. Students loved Murray, but his outspoken politics didn't sit well with us of state administrators. The war in Vietnam is racist. That is the law that crackers like Johnson are using black soldiers and poor white soldiers of Mexican soldiers as dupes and fools to fight against people of color. In Vietnam. The board of trustees fired Murray over Comment like this one on November 1st 1968 5 days later, the black student union and the Third World Liberation Front joined together and went on strength in aspic, Crutchfield says Despite coming from different backgrounds, the strikers had a clear goal. I wanted to find out and be educated about ourselves, and we could not get that the nobody getting educated Initially, strikers did things like cherry bombs in toilets and check out tons of books at once in order to overwhelm the school's library system, But almost immediately, administrators invited police on campus. Jason Ferreira says they swarmed the school armed with five foot batons. Students responded by throwing rocks and cursing out the police. Police came down heavy hard, and they just began cracking skulls Strikers carried on anyway. Penny No. Okatsu was protesting on January 23rd 1969. In what many call the mass bust. Two lines of police came up and basically surrounded the over 500 people who were there for the rally and tracked all of the individuals who are part with that net police charged at students, Penny says it was one of the bloodiest and most frightening days of the entire strike. That was a military movement, literally a practice orchestrated military movement. Hundreds were arrested. Virtually all of the individuals arrested head Tio spend some jail time. There are real consequences to having participated in that event. It's up two more months. But eventually in March, administrators and strikers negotiated a deal after five months of protesting the school agreed to many striker demands. They promised to accept virtually all non white applicants for fall of 1969 and they agreed to establish a college of ethnic studies, the first in the country. Class is about communities of color. Ethnic studies is a way of embracing all of the cultures that make up not just this country, but with the world. And if we don't understand each other, how we're going to get along.

That history should not repeat: Hiroshimas storytellers
"Seventy, five years ago, this week, the B twenty, nine, bomber, Nola gay dropped little boy, the world's first use of an atomic weapon. At Eight fifteen in the morning of August six Japanese time. The first atomic thumb has done enemy talk. It detonated over. Hiroshima immediately killing around one hundred and forty. Thousand People I'm was aimed to explode about zero point. In the city at the junction of. Untold River. Three days later, another stroke sake. As Japan marks the anniversary, it hopes to keep the wartime memories alive using the stories of people who survived the attacks. On all. Holland. But the average age of survivors is now over eighty three. But those. This'll be the last chance to hear from those witnesses during a major anniversary. August sixth nineteen forty five was supposed to be a day off for seventeen year old. Takeo to Toco. No Snyder is the economists Tokyo Bureau chief. She had made plans to meet two girlfriends at eight fifteen owning at a train station on the west side of Shema. She was running late, and then she stepped outside, she saw flash and heard a bang. Which you regained consciousness, she found herself lying thirty meters away a mushroom cloud rising over the city. People with charts skin peeling from their arms rushing over a nearby hillside. Mr K. Ohka left's to look for her mother. and. Found rivers filled with bodies took her six days to locate her mom who is still miraculously alive. Mom lived for another twenty two years. We stuck ohka became a prominent voice amongst the hypocrisy shower, atomic bomb survivors, atomic sufferers. Telling Her story abroad many times in hopes of preventing atomic bombs from ever being used again. I heard this tale from her daughter. He got no. Mario. Who's part of a fascinating unique project underway in both your Sima Nagasaki to help preserve the stories, of Hypoxia, for generations to come to, how does this project work? So there are still some hundred and thirty thousand living. inbox. Amiss. Gone. But their average age is now over eighty three and the number who can tell their stories publicly is declining drastically. Just. You got the fact that could have done this. So the city government's in both fishermen sake have been recruiting scores of volunteers like music Otieno to become what they call dense Shosha or legacies successors. These are essentially memory keepers, people who learned the stories of the hypoxia down to the most gruesome details in order to be able to retell them with power and veracity for years into the future do. So the volunteers in, Hiroshima, have to go through a rather rigorous course, three years of study training discussion with hypoxia before they're allowed to retell the stories in public. Ms Higashi, no is somewhat unusual in that. She inherited own story, most of the Dan Shosha, take on a stranger's burden. And it simply because that's that generation of of survivors passing that the these city governments have started this program. Yeah, it is. It's really reflective of the anxiety that many people in here, C.`mon, Nagasaki and throughout Japan feel about fading wartime memories I'm what will happen. Once this generation firsthand witnesses passes away the city governments and the peace museums. Atomic bomb museums in both cities have been collecting and recording testimony for many years. But this then social program is away, they hope to preserve these memories in living form to retain the emotional impact. The comes from searing these stories from another human being. and. So where does this fit in with the the wider of up the bombing of of the war in Japan? For Japan, the Hiroshima Experience became central to wartime memory and park has some scholars have argued because it allows victim narrative to dominate shifting the focus away from the atrocities Japanese soldiers committed abroad in Asia and the Pacific certainly oaks in China and Korea have bristled at the lack of context that some of the retailing's of the aroma and Nagasaki experiences or trey. and. If you look at Japan today, it's of course, wrestling a new with the legacy of the Second World War and its aftermath in particular the constitution that America imposed on Japan after the war, which renounces war bars Japan from maintaining armed forces. In practice, Japan does maintain a powerful military which it calls the Self Defense Forces and its Prime Minister Obey Shinzo years has hoped to change the constitution to revise the constitution in order to make explicit that Japan's military is constitutional and and perhaps to expand the limits of what they're allowed to do. Curiously, the public still supports maintaining the postwar constitution. So in short pacifism is still deep seated in today's Japan. and. What about the the the effort of auction others to to learn the lessons of the second. World War d? How does nuclear non-proliferation look at this stage from where you are. Well. This is another source for concern. Of course, non-proliferation efforts in recent years have been faltering just this January. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. It's doomsday clock. It's subjective measure of our proximity to self-annihilation closer to midnight than anytime since its establishment in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, the hawks are are pleased and take solace in the signing of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in two, thousand, seventeen, it invokes there unacceptable suffering in its preamble and a nod to how the memory of interesting Nagasaki continues to shape non-proliferation efforts globally yet at the same time, no country with nuclear weapons has signed up to that treaty neither has Japan in fact, which shelters under America's nuclear umbrella. And, and how does that sit with Hypoxia at this stage at this anniversary being marked. I spoke with US Akihiko the governor of the prefecture, and he expressed the view that I heard from many others both your seem sake, which was a wish that Japan would use its moral authority as the only victim of atomic weapons to push harder for their abolition. The hypocrisy. Have Long gramps and spoken about abolishing the bomb before the last houses away. Just to make the do. You call. You can. That's unlikely. But the hypocrisy hope that their stories at the very least. Deter the world from ever using his weapons again. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you very much for having me.
How One Block Got Through It
"Over the past five months small businesses in America have been undergoing a mass extinction event. Bars are closed restaurants or half empty and retail is shuttered. Full blocks are slipping away. I wanted a sense of how this is playing out in the city I live in. CHICAGO. Not The one off story of a beloved are not the frightening toll in national statistics I wanted the story of one block. So I went to seventy fifth street in the Chatham neighborhood in the heart of Chicago outside. This. Part of the South side is really pretty. There are huge street trees flowers on the steps of the bungalows brick two flats al capone used to live in one of them. Many corners have signs from block looks setting the rules of the road. No loud music no car repair watch out for children playing. Even middle class parts of the side commercial corridors have struggled. redlining big box stores, job loss and black flight have left them full of vacancies. There are signs for businesses that have been gone. So long their phone numbers don't have area codes signs for furniture stores, nurseries, food markets, stores that sold beepers. which is what has long made this stretch of seventy fifth street, just east of South, Michigan, Avenue Standout, and what makes it stand out? Even during the pandemic. There's a handful of hair salons and barbershops. There's a dentist and a daycare. There's a cycling Ju. We're one day I visit. The DJ is wheeling bikes onto the sidewalk for afternoon classes. A little bit nervous, south. Arm. Being. There is a cult favorite, vegetarian joint Zoll Veg, which always has a line inside and if famous barbecue joint limbs, which always has a line outside. Large To dry cleaners where the pressed uniforms of Chicago police and transit workers hang under plastic and a Taylor who says online ordering suits him just fine. To never going to stop because you combat it fit to perfect. You're going to need some ultra and that's why. There's a deli run by an ex COP. I went there cover in plain clothes they know who I was and I got to a fight. So, as may have started the fight, my gun thought of mine waste and me and a guy is literally fighting for this pistol. There's a bakery, a frame shop and Francis Cocktail Lounge. The Bar has been here since December thirty first nineteen, sixty five muhammed leads to drop by Michael Jordan too. So we are the Regal. Beagle. You don't know three's company. So a lot of people, it is the neighborhood where everybody knows your name and we're able to have people come out and have cocktails on the front. So that has really seemed to. Help us excuse me you got to mass. Need, you have on the bads. Jada Wilson turnball runs the place with her cousin who's mother founded it. If you can't tell, she used to be an assistant principal at a Chicago Public School can't you put on your mask plays. Thank you. So, much. Appreciate you. Working with children really got me ready for this. One reason I picked this stretch of seventy fifth street was because it seemed on paper like exactly the kind of place that would have struggled to get through the pandemic stretch of black owned family businesses in a city that has been hit hard by. COVID. Nineteen. But what I found was not what I expected. Mid July virtually every business on seventy fifth street had reopened after the initial shutdown. Some were just getting by, but many of them said in spite of everything that they were doing. Great. I'm Henry Bar and this is the final episode in our series on the future of the during and after covid nineteen. Today, on the show, one block on Chicago's south side tries to get through the storm.

And yet, Donald Trump seems content to say it'll all go away. Not, pushing Republicans to come to a deal with Democrats to extend enhanced unemployment benefits and the moratorium on indictions. He's blaming problems on in states on governors, pressuring states with spiking cases to reopen their schools and spreading disinformation actual disinformation about the virus including claim about children.

'Better America': Biden's Campaign Launches New National Ad
"In one thousand, nine, sixty, four Lyndon Johnson ran a now iconic campaign ad against Barry Goldwater where a little girl counts daisy pedals until her counting becomes the countdown to nuclear explosion idea being present goldwater has become elected and started a nuclear war because he's a madman. said. It. there. Is, are, the stakes. You'll make a world in which all of God's children can live. Aren't to go into the dark room, we must either love each other. Or we must die. Vote for President Johnson on November third, the stakes are too high for you to stay home. The stakes are that you're adorable daughter gets nuked. Now. Even though we're not living through a nuclear winter, we are living through a version of disaster. I mean a a national disaster resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths day after day after day and a new Joe Biden goes against the grain in many ways the opposite of the grand life and death scale the daisy at. The new the biden relates what a bummer. This current disastrous doesn't focus deaths, evictions, closed schools. It says, this virus is ruining the little things like seeing your grandkids. have been gifted with two beautiful grandchildren. We try to see them as often as possible and it's been six months. And it's way too long. And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.
COVID-19 Vaccine Ethics: Who Gets It First and Other Issues
"US government's. Warp speed is ambitiously trying to create test and licensed vaccine for covid nineteen in less than a year compared to the five to ten years typically needed for a new vaccine. The program is borrowing strategies from a crash effort undertaken in the nineteen fifties against polio. Arthur caplan was seven years old when that paralytic disease which had been terrifying parents nationwide came to his town. Last. People. In America. Get. Polio in the Boston outbreak of nineteen, fifty seven, that's where I'm from. Saw Kids in our loans on kids die in the floor. It's one of the reasons I got interested in medical ethics. The Polio vaccine developed in the fifties it saved millions of lives and brought us tantalizingly close to eradicating the disease altogether. But in the haste to produce them researchers and manufacturers occasionally made mistakes and crossed ethical boundaries. Experimental vaccines were tested on intellectually disabled children, for example, as well as millions of people in the Belgian Congo and the Soviet Union who were not given the option for informed consent that today we consider indispensable. Medical ethics come a long way in the past sixty, five years. The World Health Organization has already set up a working group on ethics and Kobe Nineteen of which Kaplan is a member. They have started thinking through many of the tough questions ahead as companies race to test experimental vaccines, and we hope eventually ramp up manufacturing of those who succeed to billions of doses. Worldwide these questions include how can we make sure vaccine trials don't exploit people or enroll too few participants from black native Latino communities who are disproportionately sickened been killed by this disease who will get approved vaccines I and who will pay for them and what if anything should we do about vaccines being sold on the black market? The most immediate questions involve large-scale clinical trials those trials will take months to produce results. Can says, one reason is if I give you the experimental vaccine. Then, I have to wait for the. Virus in nature to infect me to see whether I'm going to do better than a group that didn't get vaccine usually have a placebo control group were you don't give them an active agent and you sort of monitor one against the other. If, you're waiting for natural infectivity with Kobe we have a problem because the Degree to which the becoming infect is very slow. So you'll notice that people are starting to recruit subjects for trials right now in hot spots, they may be looking at Brazil. They may be looking at Atlanta it could be looking at a region of the country that has. A A big outbreak. But at the same time, morally we have to try and tell people who sign up for vaccination studies they should not get themselves infected. So it's a sort of moral catch twenty two, you can't really. Encourage people to be reckless and get themselves. In fact, an the problem is you're probably not going to take sicker people because it makes it difficult to assess whether a vaccine is causing an adverse event or an underlying illnesses causing events. Most of the people who come into these big vaccine trials are healthy volunteer still they're younger. Is An effort underway. In the NIH sponsor trials to try and get more diversity ethnicity and race but a lack of transparency in who is being selected for the vaccine trials has raised concerns that historically underrepresented communities may once again be overlooked. Kaplan says that the preference for healthy volunteers is also one of the reasons that vaccine testers probably won't turn to one otherwise logical place to recruit participants prisons where corona virus has been running rampant, you can't use a vulnerable population because you worry that they can't consent. They're gonNA try and say I'll do it because they want to get out of jail or get parole the other main reason why Is prison populations usually have two or three underlying diseases. I know MTV everybody's at the gym looks such Arnold Schwarzenegger. But in fact, hepatitis HIV drug abuse is a bunch of reasons why they're not a best subjects for for any beginning studies
The Evils of Election Incompetence
"There are lots of problems with elections in America but one problem a less scrutinized problem is that Democrats are unwilling to fundamentally reform system that really needs reformation because this is seen as doing president trump's bidding. Yes. Of course, Democrats are very much interested in expanding the franchise and voter access being a top issue. But when it comes to competently counting ballots and putting machines in place that can accommodate everyone who wants to vote. There's less of an incentive to get it right especially in places without a strong Republican countervailing force. Congressman nearly elect. Torres. WAS WNYC's Brian Lehrer show and while he said that waiting six weeks was unacceptable his words he framed his concerns about voting delays and because thousands of mail in ballots were thrown outs disenfranchisement I think to gently here was Torres look I am concerned about. You know the administration election during covid nineteen, but the president has no. Credibility. And I worry that some of the hyperbolic rhetoric about the integrity of New York City's elections. Up plays into the hands of Donald from WHO would love nothing more than to de legitimize vote by mail. There is a difference between administering an election imperfectly. As we did here in new. York. City in rigging election the reasonable evidence of rigging election fraud. This is the first time New York City has undertaken universal by mail. which is a massive undertaking. And whenever you're experimenting with something new. There's bound to be growing pains growing pains. Well, we're not that generous with Georgia and we shouldn't be and we shouldn't be that generous with New York just because trump is exaggerating the risks of mail in voting doesn't mean there aren't lots of problems with mail in voting maybe the and many of them are by his design look at what he's doing with the postmaster general. Let me say that but. The flaws of mail in voting or regular person voting are not about stealing an election but that doesn't mean that they're not about voters not being heard. Let me make this analogy. So there was this huge explosion in Beirut and the death toll right now is over one hundred fifty. Now at first thoughts went to terrorism and if it were to have been terrorism that would be a huge worry, it doesn't seem to. Be The case that the explosion was because of terrorism it wasn't evil. It was just incompetent but those one hundred and fifty plus people are just as dead no matter. The cause the area is just as leveled incompetence isn't as easily Vilnai's as evil doing but in a way that makes it seem like a less urgent problem to tackle. But I'm here to tell you it's not or elections or shambles because there's little. Incentive to get them working correctly by the people who are in office because those are the very people who the shambolic system in the long run works out for in new. York's case it's the very long run. We can't wait until there's a crisis on a presidential election data. Realize there is already a crisis going on as we speak
Chlo Valdary on Love & Race
"Today it's so great to have coli Valerie on the podcast after spending a year as a Bartley fellow. At The Wall Street Journal, Thou developed the theory of enchantment, an innovative framework for social emotional learning character development and interpersonal growth that uses pop culture as an educational tool in the classroom and beyond. Khloe trained around the world including in South Africa the Netherlands Germany and Israel her clients have included high school and college students, government agencies, business teams, and many more because also lectured in universities across America including Harvard Georgetown. Work has been covered in psychology today magazine and her writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal coli. So so glad to finally tell you. Likewise, well, where do we begin? There so many so many potential starting points. If it's cool with you, I'd love to start with your theory of enchantment I'm enchanted with it as A. I know. But. I am enchanted with it because I. You know I have a deep interest in education and making sure that no kids fall between the cracks and I just love to hear how your program addresses some of those issues and just. Inspires you most about that work that you do? Sure. So theory of enchantment is a social emotional learning program. I've designed about a year and a half ago. And it comes out of my my desire to construct a framework to teach people how to love using the things that we already love and that we already gravitate towards. So things like pop culture for example, because I believe that there are narrative within our pop culture that teach people how to believe in their own sense of south worthiness believe in their ability to overcome obstacles to endure hardship. Until by blending those elements of pop culture that teach these lessons with ancient wisdom my theory is that you can teach people how to love themselves, and then in long run be able to get along with and love others. I'm really inspired and motivated by especially getting it in as many schools as possible but really. Young people, teenagers, and adults I'm I'm I'm really excited for for the possibility of seeing how many people become. Enamored with this approach. So how many years have you been doing that? When did you create the program? So I created it formerly a year and a half ago. Right on. So, how old are you right now and twenty, six, th moment. Cool. Yeah. So let's back up a little bit about your history. So what was your major in College? My Major was international studies with a concentration in diplomacy. Oh Wow that's gonna come in Handy now. You're applying it well. Applying it on twitter you're applying those people's finale. Try My best. It's much much needed more more people like that on social media and in the world broader. So when did you get interested in education? So what was the point you before you create this program? You're like, wow, they're really this indeed. So, basically, after I graduated graduated in two, thousand fifteen and then I moved to New York in the summer of two thousand fifteen because I got a job at the Wall Street Journal. At The Wall Street Journal for Year working on the desk and Um for nine months while I. was there I worked on a thesis that ended up being the catalyst for theory of enchantment are trying to again figure out how to create a framework for teaching people how to love within the context of conflict in diplomacy because that was my background but there was no framework that specifically explicitly laid this out like how do we get people to learn how to love there were frameworks Potter we get people to stop fighting each other, but not necessarily, you know to start loving each other. So I created a thesis came up with a theory and then lectured on that thesis for two years. And then increasingly when I would lecture get the response from parents in from people from all walks of life. Saying, Hey, this isn't just applicable. Within the context of conflict resolution is also applicable within the context of social emotional learning in the classroom with when talking about high schools we're talking about interpersonal matters when you're talking about just trying to create a society with more human flourishing in general. So you might want to consider taking what you've done and expanding upon it and building upon it and developing it into a full course. So enough people told me that and I decided to run with it.
Has China Won? With Prof. Kishore Mahbubani
"Professor Shore Mahbubani welcome to the Model Majority podcast today my pleasure rejoin you. All right. So to get a conversation started, you know the focus of our interview today is your New Book Has China one, and there are a lot of things over to dive deep into with you on this book. The first thing I wanNA chat about is this notion of the Chinese civilization party as you know, very well, the as an acronym is sort around quite. Casually, in the media in foreign policy circle to describe China as a whole right the Chinese Communist Party and you believe that this is actually quite an inadequate framing to understand China as a country as a people and you believe that by thinking of the CCP as the Chinese civilization party is perhaps a better way to think about it. Why do you think this kind of change in terminology is helpful in helping the United States in particular understand China. I think it would make a huge difference. If the American people came to realize the truth. which is the main mission of the Chinese Communist Party. Is Not export communism to the rest of the world. which was the mission of the Soviet Union's Communist Party. But to try and reform I've and strengthen China's civilization. I what I told you is is a basic of. But most Americans, do not know this basic truth. Because, when they hear the what Chinese Communist, party. The what communists in the American imagination. is by definition somebody WHO's evil and doing bad things. That good a good communist continent, an oxymoron. In America, in American linguistic discourse. So when you when you tell them that they're dealing with the Chinese Communist, party the by definition, they believe they dealing with an evil party that is out to undermine America out to oppose the American values out to diminish. America's standing in the world without realizing. That the core mission of the Chinese Communist, party is is to make China's strong and what's interesting. And to understand how deeply rooted this mission is remember remember the send the words that Chairman Mao us. When the People's Republic of China was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine, he did not say, Hey, today we celebrate the victory of communism over capitalism and said that he said that she that the keyboards used that China has stood up he said it twice. China has to. So, even chairman mouse goal and he was much more of a communist clearly than the current leaders are in many ways was still China's strong. Too. That's why I think that the communist is. Creates a form of intellectual. Laziness in American minds because they cannot look behind that what the see what is really the purpose and mission. Of the Chinese Communist Party that's why I think that thinking of it as a Chinese civilization party, then they'll begin to realize the most important thing that America in China and live in peace because Chinese civilization is not opposed to American civilization American civilization and not oppose the Chinese civilization and both can live together in peace. Right right. What do you think the US not just a public but really even the foreign policy circle. Right. The folks in DC. The people who are supposed to understand the stuff for living because it's their job. To kind of display, this laziness intellectually speaking, is it just because the Cold War was still such a recent memory I guess for the United States generally positive memory. 'cause we won that we just kind of put the Communist label back to where it was just because it was something that we think we understand. You ask them very difficult question because this is the great. Paradox. About the United States in the United States spent more money. On strategic, think-tanks than any other country in the world I think he spends hundreds of millions of dollars. You not billions of dollars on tragic thing. And yet America the America is the best digit think-tank were. America has the worst thinking in the. And and is shocking for example, though any comes to understanding China? More strategic think tanks very Lisi and using all the conception tariff Nelia the Cold War in the Soviet Union. And then applying it to China, when is clearly not relevant? China. So. The inability. Of the strategic think tanks in in the United States to understand the real nature. Of China. Is actually quite a frightening. Thing to watch today,
White Nationalist vs. David C. Smalley
"Further ado join me in welcoming Gordon. Call? To The podcast Gordon thanks for joining me today men. Thank you for having me on. So you have a podcast, I can't pronounce it. I don't know why. To just sorry, go ahead. Yeah. Yeah. Tell you the name of myself? Yeah. Yeah. It's totally the name your podcast and and your your your reason for coming on today. So. I'm Gordon Call I'm the editor of American her dot Org. It's a blog website I host the podcast tune Americana which acting is you know the German word for attention right and then America Connor is a term that some people on. If you WANNA call what I am the right or the dissident right have used to refer to white Americans right It's based on the term for white South Africans Afrikaner. And the idea was to we needed a word to represent the unique white ethnicity of America, right because you know. I. My background I'm German and Irish right I'm a midwestern Mutt but I'm not German and I'm not Irish right. I if I went to either of those countries, I would not culturally fit in there. I am a unique. Example of my background and nation. But Our podcast acting Americana is kind of A. Talk Show I guess we go over different topics and news stories focused primarily on the Midwest and fly over country and we kind of examined them from a white nationalist or distant right pursue. Okay. So do you consider yourself a white supremacist? No. And it would probably depend on what your definition of white supremacist is I've a lot of times people throw that word around to me. What white supremacist connotes is this idea that you want white people to like rule over other races like I don't know like the antebellum south or something like to enslave black people or whatever. I have no interest in that quite frankly if I had my way, I would not live near anybody like I mean I have no desire to rule over other peoples I want to. But quite frankly, I want my people to have the right of self-determination and to be left alone. Okay. So in that in that situation, this is where. I think the the lines will be blurred is, let's say, let's say you had your way and let's say there is a section of America. Let's say thirteen states or fifteen states or whatever that is dedicated just a whites-only. When that became overpopulated and that white part of America wanted to. Expand. Its borders. What would happen I mean? You wouldn't just say well I respect that that's the line. That's the because we're segregated I'm not GonNa Cross it, and we wouldn't you try. Then at that point to take the land of people who weren't like you. I mean isn't that what's happening to Europe and America? Now I mean considering the huge population boom and Africa and the massive population and say China right white white people of European, descent and if you want to get into the what is white debate I'm not really interested in that everyone knows what a white person is. But white people make up like ten percent of the world's population. Total. And the only countries that are being flooded with immigrants of a different race are white countries. You don't see massive populations of Europeans going into say tenure, for example, that is viewed as colonization, which is viewed as an evil act by the left. But when it is done in white countries, it's viewed as progressive and diversity. Okay. So back to my point there's no. Okay. So if you want to ask like what like first of all this whole like ethno state thing I know that that was something that Richard Spencer brought up when he first came on the scene. Like. My thing is this. I whatever idea of an ethno state or whatever people have. You'RE NOT GONNA get that in the foreseeable future for one thing politicians don't even talk about white people in a positive light in America today. So the idea that you're going to have like a political platform of okay we're going to split the states up based on race is ridiculous because you know Donald trump the supposed-, White Supremacist Fascist Nazi president that we have or whatever. Right who all of his children are married to. Jews. Which you know somehow makes him a Nazi. I guess. Like even he the most he said about white people was believe early on in his campaign he mentioned the farm murders in South Africa and then I think like a few weeks ago on an interview he mentioned that white people are killed more often by police than black who which is statistically true obviously their arguments about per capita or whatever yeah which is which Is the entire point not something we could just brush off. I. Mean that is the entire point there. There are far more white people in the country which goes without saying that you know but the percentages are much higher if you're black for you to be shot. So that's why that's problematic is it states something that's a technical fact but missing the entire point of the movement. I mean I guess but I also like I gotta be honest there are tons and tons of political. Groups, NGOs advocacy organizations five Oh, one C. threes what have you dedicated to blacks and black interests just like there are plenty of them dedicated to Jews and Jewish interests. Or Indians right both like native American American Indians right and you know Hindu Indians Arabs what you there are no organizations at all that advocate for the interests of white. Americans.

How To Build Wealth and Personal Freedom Fast with Andrew "Cobra" Tate
"To my understanding that you come from across the continents you're born in the United States grew up in England. You've been involved in chess from an early age, your world champion, kickboxer, and an entrepreneur in a number of very businesses. Do I have most of that? Pretty well, right. That's yeah. That's pretty much. Exactly correct. Yeah. Very businesses this and that, but they're all doing. Okay. So love to know a little bit more about your personal background I've invited you on the show to talk about wealth building and the tagline of radical personal finances that dual fold mandate of living well today while also building applying for financial freedom and I've observed that you seem to do both those things fairly well, you have a lifestyle that's intensely focused on freedom, but you've also done a pretty good job of living well today I see posts all over social media view supercars and and your girlfriends and. Traveling around the world with your boys. So how did you wind up? Where did you start and how did you wind up today? Tell us a little bit about your journey with wealth. Yes. So I am one of those people who always really wanted to be rich and I didn't want to be rich because of material things I've always been one of the people who didn't like listening to the rules I was always attracted to freedom and I learned at early age that freedom usually comes with money I mean shirl there's some rich people who are constrained by their money but if you do things right, you get the freedom. Money can certainly by a degree of freedom. So I was not raised in a rich family. My family was actually much more on the poor rent. So when they got the forest and social housing in the UK, my father was a professional chess player which doesn't pay much money at all. So I'm not from any kind of financial. Hereditary. There's no I didn't get any Any money within the family members died I wasn't taught anything about money from a young age. I was just always attracted to freedom. Delta's very attracted to for a long time. So I always wanted to be rich for as long as I can remember even though even though like most poor kids kind of sit and think all I want to be rich, I'll never be able to or whatever. I was one of those poor kids now goes okay. There's there's obviously a way to do it, and that's how I get a life full of freedom. So I'm going to find a way to do it so I was always motivated to have it. And that's it. Yeah and then I, I was fighting for a long time that never paid the bills. So I mean it paid the bills but never made me rich. So I had to start thinking of other things and you know one thing leads to another beer I am. So trace the journey with regard to wealth over with regard to your career your business. From my research sounds like you've been involved in a number of different things but your parents divorced when you were young moved into social housing with your mother and your siblings but then something happened whereas now you're traveling the world driving supercars living in a mansion in Romania Cetera. What was that pass through business for you? Okay. So by my financial story is quite short, really I went to. I. I was unhappy with school and the reason for this is pretty simple when I was growing up in America my parents are still together because I moving when they divorced when I was growing up in America, I was moved up three grades and I was playing a lot of my father was a chess grandmaster. I was on track to be chess grandmaster. I was playing chess scholastically with. The schools and I was Indiana state chess champ h five and doing chess. So when they split up my mother who's originally originally English, want to go back to her family in England I came to England and there was no chess in the schools. The British system is less ruthless than the American system. They don't like moving people upgrades they don't like you know really segment people by. It's far more of socialist. I guess you know we're all the same and I found school I found very, very boring. So I didn't try very hard. So by the time I graduated from school is sixteen my attendance rate had dropped to twenty, twenty, five percent average and the reason for that was simple. If I saw someone up to the gas station and Lamborghini. I didn't sit there and think he worked really hard school. I sat there and call he is either a drug dealer or he's broken the rules or there's some hack here he's pack the Matrix everyone goes to school has a Lamborghini. So to me school was absolutely a waste of time. That's what I believe to be. So I stopped going basically. I passed all my. Season B.'s even though I only twenty five percent attendance and my father were very mad and and even my teachers like you're capable of so much more you could have easily gone a but because you didn't come get it up. So I decided to go to college and try really hard to prove a point. So I went to college afterwards I studied business I studied. The four hardest a-levels is called New Kias physics math. Political. Science and. Business degree. I start studying them all and I did so well, it all of them that even though there was eight exams by my sixth exam by the time, it was over I already had as inevitable subject. So then they gave me some other advanced testing which I did very well, and and I offered a scholarship to university university in England. Much chimerical cost money if think big loan, etc etc.. So I was offered the scholarship to a business university and I came home told my mother and then tomorrow wasn't though So she she went crazy. She was like what? This is one hundred, thousand euros a free education. What are you going to do? What do you mean? You'RE NOT GONNA. Go you already messed up school and now you did so well in college and you're GonNa go what you do instead and I said I'm going to become a kickboxing world champion.
Dota Pit Is Done, Here Comes OMEGA League
"Yes, we are Doda pitch has concluded cinder. and. I personally didn't get to watch this tournament. because my sleep scheduled disallowed it as you know, but `Nigma did beat alliance in a best of five grand files three, two two. So a very up close series talking to this tournament. It actually just had a lot of mean closer towards the end right to to ones, and then the three to which is great for the region. Right. If the teams are close in keeping games off each other worth noting was the absence of secret obviously who have one Basically everything the last two to three months in Europe So them not being there might have leveled the playing field a bit. It's hard to say how much the other teams have caught up when secret aren't part of the tournament. But obviously, `NIGMA great confidence boost. It's been awhile since they've been doing this well Close finals, five games every game was I mean it's kind of a patch right? Most Games were like thirty to forty five minutes. There were no marathons and no GIG stomps but you know it's it's kind of just your your average game time. I guess have you played assemblyman a game yet by the way? Have still have not I don't. I might have actually. have. You finally been introduced the I'm trying to remember. If I had a game with a I. Don't I like maybe I had one actually I'm not positive how it might have happened but did it was one game? Okay. That's incredible. I mean it's not that important. It's to me they're the coolest items in the game, but anyway continue. No. Yeah. So I mean we. We should just I think just focus on the podium, right? Okay. Third Alliance, second `Nigma I and also scary team. Veasley. Teams at any time looked like all three could win because of how the series went so. Yeah good stuff going forward into the Omega League which is a much bigger tournament in terms of price pool we are casting in that by the way if you missed we started casting yesterday. Yes. currently casting their close qualifiers for the European region and that will be casting that over the next week roughly. Make sure you guys check that out actually I. Didn't even I think we're we're not just doing closed qualifiers. We'll doing some of the normal pre playoff stage so I think other than yesterday. So going forward today after this podcast actually will be doing one series an after today, we have three more days in the next two weeks span that were doing games. And then. I'm done at the very least your your schedule is going to be like, but don't know. I don't know anything about what I'm doing. Is this the first? Tournament secret is. After their break feeling that break has been that long it's been like a weeks is the first one. Yeah. I've been two weeks is a decent on time and Doda. To be honest I three weeks. So just to refresh people, EG is going to be part of the EU division on this. So it's quite staff I mean we might as well just mentioned all the teams team secret navy liquid VP flight, a moon E. G. OG alliance `Nigma and NIP, and then to close qualifiers which I mean we can go off on a limb and say who we think are GonNa win because I. Think. Viking. Is definitely like major. and. Then the secondary team, it could be bait. A. Pires these days think hell-raisers quotas well as get their stuff together like there's there's multiple options but I would definitely say clear favorites from nearby. To get first place. In those qualifiers. They've been pretty impressive. They've been they've definitely been very good Yeah. I mean I think this tournament is worth like just emphasizing bit that this might be quite possibly the best tournament of the year at this point because with the development of covert I, don't know if we're going to get any big land until the years over If things start opening up in October or whatever tournaments right now can bank on it. So they can start booking venues and planning everything. So it means if there's announcements of of stuff getting a bit less extreme in, let's say two months than they need a preparation period. So I think at this point, any big land this year's just very unlikely could add this online ones mega stack tournament at least for the West there's probably going to be bigger tournaments for the east than this but. Yeah, it's a it's a very big western tournament. So if you if you WANNA watch some of the best daughter, this is your chance to maybe watch the biggest turn. It says it goes through to September six is actually true correct Dan. So it's a really long term. So this close qualifiers and then there's a big group stage and then there's playoffs. Are Okay. This is gonNA. Be Dumb to bring this up. What are we casting for? The next two is adjust close squall. Here's my actually mistaken. I think it's just close quote Holy Shit. I think the Games I believe the group the group stays in Europe starts August fourteenth. My birthday and I. Good. Let. Me Just check the America's America Start Sixteenth and Asia is already ongoing with the group stage. That's August. I, sixteen they're way ahead. So the playoffs and group stage of the main event. If you WANNA call it's three weeks. That's crazy. That's

Look at Joe Gibbs racing I feel like they are the best team and I think that helps me more next year. Not many. You're going to have to kind of split your attention attention getting ready for twenty twenty one and twenty twenty. I think Kyle Larson. I'm sorry I think Martin Checks Junior. His team bring the most amount of speed that racetrack every week. I'M GONNA go with Martin Ex. You know we were going to have to do this can i. I how about this is my too early prediction. Then I'm not gonNA pick a champion but I'm Emma predict a guy is going to go and join the multiple winner column and at Somebody Who's not even in the winter column. I Have William buyer and not only breaking through in two thousand twenty breaking through and winning more than one rates. Yeah talking to multiple winning season for William Byron drive twenty four just too good the second half of the season season Chad canals. Coming back top of the box first time in four or five years or have any consistency. Too early predicts that has not WanNa race multiple civil win that moving them young guys. They've show enough and showing that they deserve to be there. And so I like that idea. I'm going to give you a champion. And he's back-back Kyle Busch but my big news is is that the wood brothers get win number one hundred for them and it's Matt to Benedetto. That gets them there and they might win more than one race. Also I believe but I believe that he gets at least that number one hundred for the wood brothers I. I'm not sure there'll be anybody more enthused to be in their car in Daytona that Mattie and it could be the Daytona five hundred where he gets done how. `Bout that we're brothers back is they're making me feel bad. y'All take two drivers that have no wins between the two of them and said they're both going to win. Multiple races here picks martan-chu rex. I mean the low hanging fruit and you want a crazy one. I'm going to go back to back back. We'll be no rain. No Rain racetracks until twenty. Didn't we hear that earlier. This you hope it works. It's time to see did you. Ah Money Nascar America because he is the last time you buy Joy Gordon. Sorry your first. So when we come back and we're going to deliver some well-deserved shout out it'll be fun and.

This season This is there something you'd like to save. I know I know what you on the spot. I think you said it best performance is really think. This is a performance driven decision. If this turns out to be true and I know there was financial ramifications with what swears is bringing that sense but I think for Haas. It's just one of those things where you say. Hey here's someone who's really performing well lower series. We want to give them a chance to move up. And here's a driver ever who didn't make it in and that's really just not acceptable in that level commitment not to make him well.

"Part of that they would have a twenty five foot section at their monitoring I think that is something that team if they didn't convey that or like really study that Hey William Byron needs to know that you can't be here because I think a driver generally with thank hey if I'm at the end this far down pit road I should be able to stop the accelerators hers I want there's No way catch me I think they knew there was a loop I just didn't think they could get over the average speed in that sense yeah he just came off the road and having to accelerate these better now than what he was what they felt that he can be there was a clipboard or heard from San from him I think he called it right it was basically an unofficial day he finished tenth and second-stage tenth in the race he's the kind of I was looking to make up points he didn't really do that I'm not saying that I'm concerned but I gotta be good on Friday for Clinton have good weekend and they had problems starting on Friday at that relegated them they never found the speed because they were working on a mechanical issue and when they don't have a good solid product seldom they had a good race and even Ryan Blaney minus twenty two they must win for him twenty two points is nothing that can be made up at Talladega alone in Talladega is really good for both those guys the Ford guys four strengthen numbers Stewart Haas dominated the Talladega racier it goes so I think Boyer and Blaney both can look Sunday Sports Blaney was the best car out of that penske do yesterday and had a good solid totten ron going and something breaking it was a good sales pitch but nobody says Talladega race for us they're all scared to death to be your enough next we're going to look ahead at why why is everyone so worried about that they all the craziness we expect to see welcome back to Nascar America some news today Rodney Children's crew chief for Kevin Harvick re signing with the team multi year deal so congratulations to the Kurds even the number four drives people to quit we talked about the craziness of Talladega winter Talladega quarter it so as a crew chief even crew chief Dale Earnhardt Jr. I've never felt good about going to Talladega one from the front the Dj you had success there of the guys here on the table you're the only one that's had the drive into this chaos and what is that like I you know something that you either race or you don't and there's no doubt that every driver knows what is at stake in what is there I think the playoffs have added something to that for these drivers twelve that are still involved there obviously arson as stated he doesn't have any worries he's GonNa go there and be happy with whatever happens but there is a level understand that something can happen but you have to raise it the way that you as a driver what you feel I think trying to listen to a spotter or crew chief tell you where you need to be the wrong thing as a driver yet to make up your mind and be decisive on what you want to do and what you're going to get out of this day one word down here that I think has changed plate racing stages cruising around these drivers have to go to collect and they're going to have to embrace it like Dj said the only guy is fully embracing it is kyle as we mentioned Harrison's wreck here and they got on his live as he put it I think I believe him you can believe them when he says I will be smiling throughout the raise I think everybody else to your points de sales job they're gonNA have to convince themselves that they really want to be here and be racing for Pointer Oh my gosh that's a good.

The role gives us a big race coming up this weekend.

Jimmy Johnson sponsor ally financial hosted a group of local students this on the Hendrick motorsports campus part of ally fuelling futures a program that educates middle and high schoolers about career paths in motor sports as well as the finance finance relief force. Jimmy was involved in last year's memorable finish at the rose bowl by he hopes this time around. He'll be in victory lane peaceful with our gave birth for years. Jimmy Johnson and his wife Sandra had been giving back to public education in today's no different although it has a little bit different spin on Jimmy. What are we doing here today. Yeah this is largely allies initiative where they really want to teach financial responsibility to kids all around the country we're here today at. Hendrick motorsports went a high school. Students are here and not only learn about financial responsibility but also you know the career paths that exist in a place like Hendrick motorsports where you'd think was just racing but when you really break it down there's engineering and marketing and public relations in a variety of different things that hopefully we can inspire here today at in their stem students so they're interested interested in engineering but but to get that financial element obviously allies bank main focus that'll be key for managing your money to me right way to learn that yeah we had to learn the hardware bravo in typical fashion they want to do it right and and it's a big initiative for them and so it's really important to them to teach that financial responsibility and and I'm taking some notes because I have a nine and a a six year old coming along and we're trying to take care of allowance right now notes from them back to you. Perhaps on the road this weekend because there's not a lot of the data. What did someone call it a subset of one. We have right for one race but going back to this place now. What's your forecast this year. I just need to make that last. yeah that'd be a very important part and not crash morten but it it just a really technical and demanding track and then. I think the changes made we're going to add add another layer of that. the garage area smart you know so. I think our cars are just naturally going to be quicker. We're in around there. Faster Pace plus the higher downforce force. We have on issues package. I think the higher downforce should bring some comfort to us. We're really on its last year so I'm hopeful at least that the higher downforce Coleman cars out a little bit and you mentioned the exit that was that last lab. That's where you nailed it right and you had an incite. You're under a lot more pressure last year I would think because it was a transfer race for story this year a little bit more free and easy and maybe that much more dangerous yeah. I think for a couple reasons one. You're absolutely right with the transfer. Although I wasn't thinking of it it was all about a win I could've finished second transferred and moved on but I was thinking of the wind and then you know just in a rebuilding phase right now. We're trying to rebuild the forty forty eight and make it into what it would will be known as from from this point forward clearly. We have a huge history which had canal the helm car. the history of the car is all about but but we're in a building face in two thousand nineteen really has been a building face. I think we're in a good spot now and we're really looking to these final eight races to set aside for two thousand twenty okay so let's go ahead and talk about the fact obviously looking for redemption this year at the Rosebowl. Can it happen. I mean when you're not in the playoffs. Jimmy Johnson I mean he had a shot last year. It was going for that win. You just said I think it really can happen last year at the robot me from the time that they designed the racetrack. When we started testing testing there he was just on it and you know he's got a road course win but you wouldn't consider Jimmy Johnson the best road course driver out there but I mean he showed up. They were quick from the moment. They got in the race track. During the weekend he was fast and and obviously right here. He had an opportunity to go for the win and now I know I know some people at the time when like why didn't you just settle to make it to the next round the let's not Jimmy Johnson style. You don't win seven championships settling he hasn't won for a while so I don't see now this weekend if they have that same type of speed where he's got no pressure trying to make it to the play. He's trying to spoil everybody to go out there and why he can't do that. Yeah well first of well. He sent it in there which I thought was awesome to watch and I think one of the things I remember from last year was how fast he was actress Chicane. We've completely changed that he was just incredible. Bill meth remade made that huge run on Martin tricks junior coming to that final chicane was that batch when he just got an amazing run through it he was so faster through there all day so I think that was was something that's maybe been taken away from them in terms of what was so good there but he mentioned having higher downforce having more security in the car sorts of things. I think all that's just going to play if you had you were comfortable last year. You're probably going to be more in terms of just having more downforce. The cars could be a little bit more underneath us. Hopefully I'm hoping we'll find out and I think it just having that second year of knowing it's not such an unknown all that through winds up and I think there's an air amongst that team and from Jimmy of confidence I sense you know I know they've mentioned to me a couple of times about having good vibes within that race team and I just think that right now they're in a zone of seen like hey we don't have much to lose at this point so everything serval positive and they he mentioned you building towards next season. I absolutely think that race team is in that positioning okay. We're not gonNA give them to the changes that they made to the track layout. That's coming up later in the show but Jimmy did have a quote last week on racing as a non playoff driver he said I saw quite a few situations where drivers in the playoffs took. Some desperate moves out there. It's not having to other drivers. I have a a few make a move on me as well. It's a tricky situation to be and I know they're going after every point they need but I am i. We currently plan to not allow myself to be used up as I was in Vegas a a couple of times so right there shows that aggression I mean you guys have both been there. You know like in the sense of your racing for something to even if you're not in the playoffs I both situations I made the playoffs and I've been the guy that that has been in the playoffs and no driver wants to be that guy that goes out there in REX playoff contender tender but at the same point they the people that are in the playoffs left understand that like hey the people out of the playoffs. They're quite upset. Jimmy Johnson's. He's never been in this position before so he somewhat forgets hey. He is that guy that used to do that. Every year and you know you take somebody like Daniel Suarez where oh he's he's bouncing off his teammate on the I lab where he got into Joey Logano. He's at an organization that has cautioned the playoff set of one races. He says he was at an organization. The previous couple years that headquarters in the playoffs in one reason he hasn't Wanna racing so he has a lot of pressure for him. Whether maybe he's fight for job or just trying to go out there and win his first interest rates the Austin Dillon thing in bowman at Richmond no or CR they've had struggling year. They're not happy so the drivers that aren't in the playoffs or frustrated straighted and I always looked at it is I don't WanNa be that guy that causes an issue with the playoff drivers have a lot more to lose than I do. So how much risk are are they willing to take and there's a fine line there so that's been my point and I find that some really interesting question. I get asked a lot especially this season driving in a part time capacity. You don't Indy. Just a couple of weeks. Ago was really awkward for me. In terms of I know for my race team. I owe it to them. That are out there looks the same to me doesn't matter what situation there and I've got to beat beat him because as a part time team every finish so much to us or not running there for points. It's literally what that finishes the end of the day matters most and I'll tell you though that no matter what when I was racing around gale swerves in Indy I couldn't help but think man. This guy is a lot to lose today. You know this guy.

"On Nascar America here with AJ Almudena and Parker clergyman both of whom are racing this weekend. Aj and the xfinity series Parker in the Cup series so this Thursday shows really just like a warm up act for the main event each other. That's probably we could be nice erased. Were both going to be on victory lap as well so that he's got game. They give me tips. This gives me no not going to happen to watch but you can watch him on Saturday. Yeah Jack. We're GONNA have to on the show today. We have a lot to get to Jimmy. Johnson does miss part to hold local students and also explains the challenges. You of the Charlottesville involved in the big finish facing a must win situation. We go behind the driver. When Eric Jones reveals the biggest influence his racing career and if another edition of his tail time we take a trip to a short back in North Carolina the tax a lot of fun but we are. I still breaking down the big news from yesterday. Ralston racing announced that it will part ways with Ricky stenhouse junior at the end of the two thousand eighteen season and the Chris Buscher will rejoined organization and drive the number Seventeen Ford Mustang next year and I know social media going crazy with everything someone. Aj reached out to you already said they had maybe the answer that you should be. You should be in the car and he responded with this. I mean I had I had my time and yeah and I'm happy here at the NBC. You See sports family. That's not Mr tickle your cat. Okay no posture yes before we do start this discussion. If you do want to try to follow along there's a lot of moving pieces log on to NBC Sports Dot Com Nate Ryan just posting today the latest it kind of helps sort of break everything down and I guess that's what we have to do here Parker because any time time in any sport an athlete changes address moves teams. You always want us. Okay who who wins in this you know what rush fenway racing does this move. They needed to make for the organization. Are they now on the better side of things. I think you need to look at this organization from what they've been trying to achieve the last couple of years to see how they won here how they cheat with maybe they're trying to achieve and therefore for what I go back to is over the last couple of years. We've watched this organization continue be fringe playoff organizations. They've tried to manipulate ways into the playoffs. They have always called them the team. That's it's money bowling their way into the piles whether it's really focusing on the super speedways with Ricky stenhouse junior and putting a lot of resources on those races in trying to get a win to get in the playoffs house or trying to look at points late in the season say okay. What do we need to do. Average finish wise to make sure we're in the playoffs but what Ryan Newman expose this season was that there there's a path for this team outside the top twenty in fastest cars they could point their way into the playoffs and I think this was. Maybe one of the worst things ricky in that. He's not the type of drive. It really buys into that point situation. He wants to just go out there and rates for wins. He's going to go out there and try to get just the absolute best performance out racecar. He's very aggressive driver. Whereas Newman showed there was the path by being maybe a little bit more consistent a little bit more focus on the point situation so when you look at that and you look at what Chris Butcher does and what he's achieved this season at jt with with numerous top twenty s I mean the best in that organization's history you have to think they looked at those numbers and said all right if we're truly looking at this moneyball situation how can we manipulate the system to make sure that were in the playoffs the best chance they have is someone like Bush over Ricky stenhouse junior because what newman showed them this year and call what it it is. If you look at Chris Butcher he's just a younger version of Ryan Newman. I mean I mean that's essentially what you're saying is. He goes out there and does the same thing he maximizes the race car. He never tears up equipment and I saw this firsthand. He doesn't tariff equipment on his own. I think I count on one hand by himself something that he did the couple of years that I raised with them. He didn't tear up any equipment he maybe had three or four wrecked by himself and he goes out there and make sure that he gets all the points possible. which is what he's doing right now? That's how he's got. The thirty seven car inside the top twenty points had sixteen top twenty in a row up until Richmond this past weekend so so he is a version of Newman now the only thing we've never seen Chris Butcher because he hasn't had the equipment in the Cup series is if they get the cars close enough. Can you go out there and win races in my opinion seen it firsthand being with him every weekend seen how he gets everything out of the race car if they get those cars close enough to to go out there and contend for winds. Maybe not a weekend basis but you picked tracks like Bristol certain places like that and there's so many Chris Amazing at Michigan Kansas. You get cars snuff there. He can go win race so I think this is a great move for row fenway and a great move for Chris Butcher himself. I would like to go back to I think a lot of people overlook the fact of okay for Ricky stenhouse one of the things that I love watching him race cars is that he is so aggressive but he is someone who puts it all on the line. It doesn't matter if it's practice qualifying or the race. He's GonNa give it one hundred ten percent. I love that about him. I love watching him drive race cars for what row Ben Racing trying to achieve though he probably has proven not to be the driver for them and what they're trying to do and that's what I believe. Steve Mo- new Mark Really alluded to in his comments insane. They've started to see a path and he just doesn't align with that path but there is an organization out there possibly that his driving style and the ways we can. San How's it goes about driving that would work for them. It just wasn't right for times. He made those cars look faster gas. Ask actually were but we saw time. He just didn't get the finishes because of being a little too aggressive so you guys are saying I mean I liken it to a quarterback with a great arm but you're playing for a team that likes to run. The ball is just not the right strategy major that fit for that team but there's always sides to every story so we're talking if Rao Fenway is a winner in this situation. What does that mean for? NJIT racing and you're saying you know Kristie well. You raised with him. let's go ahead listened before you get into this discussion a little audio clip from Brad daugherty. Ah About everything went down. Yeah totally caught US off guard because we're we were already building stuff the next season. If everybody else does and getting ready and preparing and you know we do our business a little bit different than a few other folks we really drive you know small packets salk talk to package good product placement stuff really really hard with our partners at Kroger and so yeah we were in the full throes trying to put something significant together and thought we had it done on and pretty close to it and things change. It's like this sketches you off. You know really by surprise this late in the year especially you know you're trying to be a professional as you possibly can. about how you handle these situations i. I don't ever blame any athlete if he thinks he's putting himself in the situation. It's going to be better for him. His family got no no problem with that. It's just for us. It's always the timing and and getting this late into the season when you have commitments it makes it very difficult to swallow this easily so listening to that it sounds like Brad Tatton Jody Scheckter. They were blindsided by this move. I really do think they were blindsided by it. But what the Info that I've gathered in enough people I've talked to in wait somewhat knew it worked is there was a deadline and create. He was not a row fenway driver anymore. When it per se the first year he was at the race is team. He was on loan so he was still route fenway driver that they were alone and after that he became a JT driver but there was a clause in the contract that when Chris was having basically to resign or if the team wanted to resign them it had to be done by a certain date if that date passed Chris and his management team. They let routes fenway no hey they don't they didn't sign so that was a couple of months ago. I don't think anything was really happening until about two weeks ago. It sounds like back and then all of a sudden the wheels in motion started happening and Tuesday night sound like the deal was like this is going to happen Wednesday morning. Everybody knew so to be perfectly honest. I think it was almost a mistake in the sense. There's not a Lotta rides out there so maybe they just thought well. We can kind of just delay this. Take our time because we're GONNA go. There's no rides out there. Where's he going to go next to no ride opened up and he's gone and it's a shame for that race team because he's been doing a fantastic fantastic job and he's made that car inside the top twenty in look strong every weekend so it's going to be interesting they find replace it. We you bring up a good point and that's that AH relationship but crispus your has with Russia and I'm glad you explained that because it sort of puts the pieces in motion or the timeline of the fact that oh wait. There's this kind of contingency. Let's see I guess kind of floating out there. I mean he gave fenway their first or their last and most recent extending series championships and he was with them since he was sixteen years old back all the way to the orchestra series wins achieved champion there for the rule of brothers with being around family relevant driver he didn't get to any inexperienced series takes full holdout. Opportu wins the championship you know they invested in Chris Bush Bush or as a driver vested in his career to bring him up through the ranks and teams will do this. We saw this for numerous years over the last ten or fifteen years. I was a penske development driver. They invested in my hi career and one thing you do if you were to leave them a point and I remember this with Penske was always sort of an unwritten thing. Hey if there's ever a chance for us to join back together you look forward to that because this is the team that took you as a young kid and gave you the opportunity and they thought highly enough of you then and they think highly enough of you in the future to say hey. We want you to come back so that's great situation so. I think you look at it and say okay. He's been gone for a little bit from our tramway but he was always there with them in some respects and they did so much for him to get to this point that he almost went into opportunity come back together like this to benefit both parties then it's a no brainer in that sense so I think it's a cool story in that sense to see teams who have invested young talent to be rewarded in in sort of roundabout way to come back and say okay this guy we invested and now he's come back to hopefully help bus continue our march forward to be more in the playoffs and he's far better off being being in that car now that he was he got out of it right out of the extremely series the experience level having what now four years and that he's been in he knows how to get the job. Bob Dunne and you know I'm a huge fan of Chris. I love being his teammate. We got along great and I learned so much from home and I think as I said rush fenway. They're getting in closer. I mean Heck Ryan. Newman's got a chance to make it to the next round of the playoffs so they're getting closer. They just get it close enough. Both those drivers we know can go win races all right. Let's not right off that thirty-seven still that missing domino of what happens next so we look forward to seeing what happens there but you mentioned making that next round of the playoffs we're GonNa talk about. The role gives us a big race coming.

I want to win two races before the starter arta but last year we won five races including this race and went on to the playoffs and it was his lacklustre his is disappointing playoffs as you possibly i mean we had fifty or sixty points going into the going into the playoffs and still didn't make the final four you know we were. We were in jeopardy or not even making the final eight yeah you know and so i i look at it for us. We have to go to the playoffs and have momentum so these reasons obviously important but i don't believe at this point. We need a win. We need five wins in the playoffs. Including home said we'll be in great shape. We're we're almost out of time but what would to a romain here. I don't think there's words. They're gonna try but you know. This place is his historic. It's incredible and it would be it would mean a lot. I think i think i would actually do the second one more because at first when you saw the emotion i it was so emotional when i got done i was like man i. I don't remember half the stuff i did. I really don't i got pictures of all of it but it was just an emotional event. I feel like if you do that again. It would be way more emotional all right. We appreciate your taking thanks to all the drivers who stopped by by the way. What did we learn today. In the show kyle rut to drummer. I didn't know dirt rudder. Drummer austin is putting a mustang engine in a station wagon. Yes which i think is kind of cool station. Why that's going to be fast. Tyler is not gonna tell us what he's going to do.

That's wisconsin's road america and we go green now a big lockup by just an all his into the gravel customer off the track and into the sand trap oh three wide. That's not not gonna work for long. There's nothing really on the line here right now for christie rebel is not time to force the issue of trouble at front syndrich pushing fell down hard in the corner and syndrich challenging it does get ahead of the twentieth bell last quarter takes a peek down there now syndrich locks them up a little bit here comes christopher bell great pass by christopher bell brexit go he gets into the tennis spinning and the second spot has changed benedetto now in the second now looking for the checkered flag as a car behind him win number six six for christopher bell and it's gonna come at road america. Now carrion card and matt to benedetto was the car off in the final corner. You'd cited of of course saying that good to second place vision win at road courses. I guess i just get lucky on these things. That's richard the rest of rebel curly. Leading expedia series standings sky. He has been on fire last ten race some of this. He's finished outside outside the top three only twice. Wow that's impressive. You gotta get on a good streak. Data's eight you see right there currently leading the standings three more races until the playoff field is set for the xfinity series but we've been fortunate enough to see chris rebel. I tand win a lot of racist d._j. You cover that one but watching on t._v. He was as excited excited as i think i had ever seen him had something to prove it a road course and well. It should be and he can stop with the. I'm trying to tell you that. I'm not a good road racer in in two seconds and a first but this i was impressive. I mean he had road racer al around him austin syndrich. He passed him back after getting passed on light race restart a._j. Almanac was doing everything he could possibly do. He had met benedetto trying to chasing down there and he bought all of this and he bought a break issue all.

"<music> <music> dowling can is supposed to be the meanest racetrack trek darlington international right way the granddaddy of them all this produce victims of uncommon valor kale jabre dave pearson or move into a showdown you too tough to tame and i say the lady in black has eld up with with all her southern spellbinding term. This is a lady. You'll never forget walking to nascar. America stephen qatar jeff burton. Dale jarrett aren't ready. That's all it took for me. I'm fired up ready to go down one of my favorite race tracks of all time and now what has quickly become come one of my favorite weekends with all the history and the throwback this year the from nineteen ninety to ninety four era so i'll give you a little sneak that both you guys are in the throwback so i don't know how you feel about that. What's it like down darlington so i i loved arlington. I grew up my dad used to take us to watch races and used to sit in the grandstands which now is used to turn for covered grandstands your ears ringing for a week you know to me. The history is so rich there <hes> that track means so much to the history of racing and very few fluke winners have happened at darlington. You know whether it's this other five hundred or the four hundred they're both big races and they're hard to win. This one might have been a little bit of luke but but yeah we'll tell the story. Why are you so excited. The right front is knocked completely off well. We we'd gone there little laughs in the past and couldn't win a race their life beating lassie last we find a way to screw it up and every the time and then we're coming. We're driving and terror. Three starts pouring down rain and i knocked down. I'm one of four or five that hit the wall. I'm leading the race as senate. It's destroy needs a fronts now like so i kept shoved in third and second the gas to it and kept going around. Eventually you know had the red for the rain and they never quit raining so that's how we won the lead dollars laps and they've been found a way to win some kind of way like that very strange yeah well anyway you you can win at darlington is a good way such a tough track and probably doudou respect a david pearson being the one and only that might attained it more than bitch you as a driver. I think the rest of us were were in the negative side of that no matter how many we might have one or or how much fun but it was always such the cia think that's just the best thing is driver is that you knew what you had there and it was still so very difficult and as suspense have gone up there because of how the technology technology and the tires have gotten better. It's even made it even more difficult. We're looking forward to this weekend a lot of great paint schemes so you mentioned the speeds going up. Imagine turn to with this package how fast they are going to be going for. Turn to i mean the darwin's is one of the racetracks in the world where you drive in the corner. Go wide wide open and a gas in one and then lift off the gas over to turn to like that's crazy. You don't know where else but with the package run this year. I mean they are going to be rolling alternative. It's gonna be fascinating to watch and with that speed. I think it's going to be an interesting mix because you talk about darlington how challenging it was. I don't think it's completely the inaccurate to say when they had to repay their force to repave. You took a little bit of that kind of bite out of the lady in black. The pavement was new. You kinda run tires ars long time. You saw some interesting strategies. Well that is dawn when you look at the last couple races there the old asphalt even the look of the old asphalt is back. The tires are going aware but where does that match up with all this downforce. I expect the fall off to even be bigger because they'll go so fast start. I wanna do is going to be close to wide. Open may not exit a two but across the top one two then you get down in three. We're gonna see more fraud carried than we ever have so. When you talk about the difficulty of darlington the track conditions conditions i think are back to historic garden. We've always seen. I think a little.

"Obviously come back in the ten car. Matt di benedetto obviously had an amazing weekend last weekend. He'll be in the eighteen which has been great car and not obviously our sees regular. I think bells didn't really good job with the courses and <hes> but but our road course races always have some sort of a curve ball thrown at us. You know you got to be in the top five if you don't runoff the racetrack road america so i'm looking forward to it i it's it's gonna be fun. It's gonna be a dogfight and got got to have a blue-collar day to be there. At the end yeah the challenges orange of road america versus the two road courses that walking slanted mid ohio. What what do you face this weekend. One the tracks a lot longer so i think it plays different roles for the strategies you can play <hes> tired aggregations a lot longer but are a lot more but you can do more with with when you pay versus versus restarts stored in trying to dissipate those things and there's more passing zones american because you have the really big breaks owns a intern five candidates so i think there's more opportunities for a lot a lot of different things but there's fourteen of the racetrack so there's a lot more opportunity to screw it up at the same. Time is such an exciting race to watch. We're going to go back to the phones. Oh happy birthday anthony. Since you're a month apart <hes> james is our next caller james. What's on your mind. Hey good buddy good all right. <hes> i wanted to ask austin <hes> with the cubans watkins glen and mid ohio <hes> there's more confidence going into america's well the play offs for the xfinity yeah. I think it touched on earlier. The fact that we have playoff points in the bank <hes> not only from winning one race for two races ma- makes our playoffs offs a little easier knowing that we can you know have solid days and still but he'll move four but yeah i think i think it gives us momentum but at the same time there's different challenges salinger's between each race track the challenges we had watkins glen. Were you know trying to outrun the eighteen and then when the eighteen was gone. You know who's going to be mean a._j. To the end of the race and figuring out okay what strategy can can we do to to to try and flip things and then mid ohio where.

"In a beautiful day here in the irish of michigan marty schneider steel del jared and jeff burton join you for a nascar america fan friday and tell you what guys qualifying session was fun i mean and kept seeming meaning as it went on another guy atop another guy and then the last guy goes out brand kazlauskiene wins the pole. Yeah i think the question was who would find something from practice. There are so many cars. I don't think we expect it in the speeds compared to the first time here. We're talking over half a second faster in the poll that just shows this was a non impound. Give those crew chiefs cars and say hey run. Whatever whatever set up you want to make a faster for one yeah the drivers like that too if you can have that car set up just for that one lap instead of having to try to go out and take a ray setup and go as fast as you possibly can with just a few adjustments there incredible at what we watch. They're just as the speeds continued to get a little bit better there but i don't think anybody was surprised at the car that ended up in driver <unk> oscar winning the pole and there is walking to our set. We'll have him on the set in mere moments two hundred one hundred ninety miles an hour for him steve but i have to the team that impressed me. The most was motorsports. I mean we talked about them this. They were a second off this morning. How did they find a second qualify up in the top five when the nine made his first lap but i thought it was going to be a bad day for the nine car as you mentioned one second off that is light years when it comes to nascar racing and a two mile racetrack. I haven't talked to allen gusts in the garage area. He said it's it's been a struggle. We're not bad. We're just too slow. We've made some changes but i think he played a pretty good handle poker because i was still concerned form and and i don't think he had any reason to be concerned improving greatly early in their qualifying round yeah and they've made great strides throughout this entire year and i think that was probably something that they came here. Maybe with one idea and made some changes because there's not a ton you can do but i think they knew exactly where they needed to go if they didn't have the speed that they were looking for but they found that in qualifying see if that translates into some good race cars formal sunday so we mentioned one hundred ninety miles our qualifying d._j. But when you get into the race and your wide open as long as he's drivers are how much of a challenge is the race of. They're gonna a face on sunday. Yeah becomes more of a challenge than when they were running around here a little over two hundred miles per hour. You're backing out of the gas and let nicole role for a while. You just have to hustle these car for so much anymore and if you're going to get speed out of them they can't be what a driver would like to feel which would be a little bit of a tug on the wheel as you go through the corner you just that describes rubs off too much now and so you have to drive these things on the edge all the time and a pack of cars where the air is just knocking you around and i think that's the biggest issue these drivers average face yeah when i talked to kuchis on what the goal is tomorrow in race practice the concern is they don't know because you could go out there and it's so circumstantial you can be in one pack of cards and your cars. There's a little tight the same setup two laps later in a different area of the race track behind a different group of cars can be loose so a lot of it is a big educated guess on how much downforce you need for sunday day how comfortable your driver can be and as d._j. Said he can't be too comfortable. He's too comfortable by itself is going to be nowhere near close enough to get a pack so he talked about the fact that this is a non impound weekend weekend they get practice tomorrow and then they'll get tech the cars before the race on sunday and everybody.

No not at all dangerous man uh-huh you've already signed up for a couple of businesses. Haven't you sent me up right so that's that's so let's start there. I guess I guess that would be the most important thing. Is You know we we live in America. This is called everyday America the podcast so so first and foremost just made from your perspective as how important is entrepreneurship for our country. That's a great question. I had no idea what Russia we'd be heading but that's <hes> that's a great question in my opinion in my opinion that entrepreneurism is is it's highly highly important when it comes to the economy in general because entrepreneurs to create opportunity entrepreneurs create jobs opportunity or entrepreneurs creek a that drain. Everyone is looking for but if you're looking for capital flood if you're looking for financial stability <hes> most times people are getting out from jail be from a job and and they're usually working for somebody who had created a business ahead of event had a vision had a concept brought it into fruition and then boom they got a business and the individuals who are working for that business so entrepreneurism. The importance is what helped make America what it is today well. I mean that's what people don't maybe realizes that every person the has a job work for entrepreneur have some sort correct every every job out there weren't entre is created by an entrepreneur. I mean at least initially but I mean there's a lot of publicly holded <hes> companies out there right now that have win a different route <hes> <hes> I mean I think probably most of them started out that way. Yeah I would venture to guess all of them. Have I'm the professional stock trader so I deal with the publicly traded stocks and if you look at the genesis of every major business that's out there. Apple is with Steve Jobs. I mean you can go on and on with with <hes> Microsoft too. I mean you all the big blue chip companies that are out there Coca Cola Pepsi G._E.. They all started with an individual that had a dream in started a business and it becomes so large a lot of them become conglomerates so I did you say that you won't have a business without somebody with a vision in in his taken the wrist and taking the steps for you know spawning that I did and foolish into a tangible item that that <hes> commerce has created so does you you mentioned a dream. I gotta ask you. This might be a little bit deep early on but what does this dream kick over the world. Well now my dad. That's a great question which one of you just outside. That's Travis Jones yeah. That's the could be <hes> well. My dream is family.
