The Problem With Track & Field World Records
"What goes into a world record. Obviously it has to be an incredible performance. Everything has to come together just right. They don't happen very often. When bob beamon broke the world's record in the long jump in nineteen sixty eight. See my previous episode about that. The conditions were perfect. He had the maximum allowable. Tailwind it was at a high altitude in mexico city. He had perfect form and he put together his best jump ever at just the right time since the advent of competitive athletics nine thousand nine hundred twelve. The international association of athletic federation's has been keeping world records in every event. There's been a progression of world records. As people of incrementally bested previous performances. Most world records are only broken by less than one percent. The greatest single increase in a world record was the aforementioned bob beamon jump which beat the previous world record by six point five percent so that is sort of the world record of world records. Each event has a very different progression in how frequent and how recent world records get set. And this gets into the real heart of what i wanna talk about. You should expect to see world records being broken at a slower and slower rate over time as humans. Approach the limit of human performance should become harder and harder to break records. Records will require more luck and more people who have the perfect physique in the very peak of their careers. But this isn't quite what happened in some events there hasn't been a new world record set in over thirty years. You're shulte set the world record in the men's discus in one thousand nine hundred eighty six at seventy four point zero eight meters to put that into perspective. The gold medalist in the two thousand nineteen world championships had a distance of sixty seven point. Five nine meters a full six point five meters or twenty one feet short of the world record the men's hammer throw was also said in nineteen eighty-six yuri set up of the soviet union through the hammer. Eighty six point seven meters. The two thousand nineteen world champion through it. Only eighty point five meters that six point two meters less than the world record. The oldest existing world record in track and field is the women's eight hundred meters. Your meal acrostic viola of czechoslovakia set a world's record finishing the eight hundred in one minute. Fifty three point two eight seconds. That's almost five seconds. Faster than the two thousand nineteen world champion. You might have noticed something that all these really old records have in common. They're all held by athletes from former communist countries. If you're thinking that these records might be tainted by performance enhancing drugs. You aren't alone.
The Prague School of Rehabilitation and Principles of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)
"I think for the purpose of this discussion. Let's assume a person has never heard of. Dns has never heard of the prague school or any of these things can you in a somewhat succinct. But not terribly brief manner. Explain to people how all of this school of rehabilitation coalesced around this idea of what we call. Dns going back to the founding fathers of the prague school and what these various insights were that each of them had and how that sort of came together dns dynamic neuro muscular stabilization. Kind of built on some pioneers of functional rehabilitation. There's many that have been part of the prague school rehabilitation. But i think talking about the influence on the development of dynamic muscular stabilization by professor powell whole lodge who runs the rehabilitation department at prague school. At this time. I think we need to go back. Post world war two cold war era. Nine thousand nine hundred fifties his wear prague school rehabilitation was was really founded and it was founded as part of the medical faculty of charles university in prague czech republic or formerly czechoslovakia now czech republic and being post world war two cold war era so they were in eastern europe behind the wall. That may have been a factor for. They're not reliance but tendency towards the use of of observation in both diagnostic diagnosis but observation and palpitation for diagnosis and treatment. All three of these pioneers neurologist. And who are the three. Lot of miranda kerr levitt and ballclub woida professor janda. He had a keen sense of observation and he formulated concepts and principles that tied into pasta habituation specifically the tendency for specific musculature tend towards tightness and other musculature to tend towards weakness. And he he termed this upper cross and lower cross syndrome. So for example with an upper-crust syndrome meaning the neck and shoulder region with demands of life and tendency towards paschel habituation such as with sustained seated postures There is a tendency towards the muscles in the back of the neck the exceptional muscles the external cloud asteroid muscle which is the muscle that also attached to the skull in down to their sterner curricular joint the pec muscles the upper traps that musculature with ten towards a tight meaner over activation other musculature in the upper extremity the radius which attaches to the ribs in the back of the scapula the deep neck flex irs the middle and lower traps would have a tendency to tend towards the weakness and with that tendency towards over utilization or hyper tenacity and underutilization in addition weakness. That would also he also recognized that that would affect the quality of movement throughout the kinetic chain and subsequently would lead to overload in specific areas throughout that kinetic chain so that was a big contribution on his
Security operations centers: a first principle idea.
"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm
Live not by Lies and the Danger of Soft Totalitarianism
"Four describes. How after throwing. Peter jon jail for teaching and proclaiming. Jesus the resurrection of the dead. The san hadrian demanded they not speak or teach at all in the name. Of jesus peter bluntly replied we cannot help but speak about what we have seen in hurt throughout history. Of course. Christians have faced demands to be silent throughout history. They've refused the word martyr. In fact is derived from the greek word that means witness and live not by lies a manual for christian dissident blogger and author. Rod dreher thinks that christians in the west are now entering a season. Not only have to decide whether or not we'll be silent. We have to decide whether or not we will allow ourselves to be forced to go along. With what is not true with lies like those who endured the hardest days of communist eastern europe western christians face a totalitarian future though he admits the totalitarianism talibanism of today is different. In a number of ways dreyer thinks it is still the correct word to describe the all encompassing ideologies of our day that seek to control not just our actions but our thoughts. Of course we don't face sort of state sponsored violence persecution or physical coercion. That many many others have throughout history. One doesn't end up in a gulag for criticizing the new sexual orthodoxy or for refusing to use the demanded pronouns but some have lost jobs. Some have lost future. Some have lost their degree programs. Others like cake artist jack phillips or floors bear. No stutzman have all but lost their livelihood in our current context. What dreyer calls soft atallah. -tarian ism is mostly administered. Not by the state but by corporations and other institutions that are run by managerial elites are social media profiles our smartphones and our smart speakers provide these managerial elites in corporations with an unprecedented ability to monitor what we say in what we do. China which is also an expert of course in hard to tolerate. -tarian ism is an example of how soft -tarian could proceed especially their social credit system which determines who's allowed to buy to sell to travel based on their social behavior here even as more instruments of technological surveillance or put into place an additional layer of enforcement comes from corporate america and our recent conversation for the breakpoint podcast rod dreher pointed to the corporate reaction to indiana's religious freedom restoration. Act that dates back to two thousand and fifteen. He sees it as a key moment of cultural transition. I do too though. Indiana's legislation was essentially identical to its federal counterpart corporations responded by threatening economic sanctions. Some corporations closed down offices in the state. The ncaa which is based in indianapolis threatened to move the final four basketball tournament and then when the christian owners memories pizza expressed support for the measure they were bombarded with negative online reviews and even had to close down temporarily because of all the threats of violence during the controversy a man whose mother had grown up under the hard to teheran ism of communism wrote to roger and told him that his mom saw parallels to what had happened in eastern europe since then many others from across europe told their own observations. Many of these moving stories are included in the book. In fact the interviews with christians who remain faithful under communist tyranny. That rod includes in. This book are worth reading. Even if you aren't convinced by his comparisons between their day hours above all these dissidents such as father thomas loft colaco vic a jesuit priest. Who was responsible for an underground church network and czechoslovakia. Have a great deal to teach us about what it means to live. Not by lies. We have much to learn from the bender family from prague about how to categorize our own children when everything it seems as pointing them away from the truth and we have much to learn from people like russian christian dissident alexander. Oh garage knockoff. And of course sultanate's in an hovel and so many others will go down in the annals of church history many as

"The goal of course was to keep workers on payrolls instead of laying them off keep businesses alive so that we can more easily restart the economy when the virus finally receives the program though has come in for some criticism then enlarge part reflects the shortcomings of the original design. Congress initially appropriated three hundred and forty nine billion dollars for the program. Sounds like a lot but it wasn't nearly enough to meet the demand and the Treasury said it was first come first serve. So that's as predictable. There was a rush almost a panic. That overwhelmed banks and other lenders were to accept applications. Now one point. Six million people got the loans by Lot. Didn't which led to inevitable scrutiny of who got loans and who didn't banks favor existing customers because the rules require them to do some time consuming. Know your customer paperwork if they were gonNA take new customer and that favored employers who had existing banking relationships with lenders who were already authorized. Small Business Administration lenders then. The paperwork moved more quickly at small banks. Which didn't have that much volume. Some big banks which had a lot of volume tried to automate the process and that consume valuable time at some banks big firms were more likely to get their applicants through and smaller firms were and as allowed by the law and by. Sba rules some firms that you probably wouldn't consider to be small. Got MONEY POT belly. Crist FIESTA RESTAURANTS CARA Sushi. The Wall Street Journal found that city aries of Hotel Real Estate Investment Trust affiliated with a guy named money Bennett got thirty million dollars and another company he advises got sixteen million dollars. Some of this reflects the strong lobbying by the restaurant and hotel lobbies which got a special break and to be sure. Some of this did preserve jobs. Even those places. Some of the problem reflects flaws in the design of the program and the way banks handled the rush of applications. Some reflects the inevitable tension between getting money out quickly. We are in a crisis after all and targeting money so that only intended people get it half the money was after all in loans of a million dollars or less but history tells us that a few egregious examples can give an entire program a bad odor and reinforce the widespread view. That big guys always to better the little guys. Congress recently added another three hundred ten billion dollars to the paycheck protection program. A lot of money for sure maybe not enough to meet the demand and there were no new rules to make sure that the smallest bars were favored so we may soon hear more complaints from people who sought loans where eligible but didn't get now in some cases. These firms workers will be laid off but the work will still get unemployment benefits. So they'll be able to buy food and pay the rent but the relationship between the employer and employee baby severed forever and that's not good for anybody. The clumsiness of this program running it through the SBA asking the banks to administer what amounts to grant stones lawyers raises a question of whether there was another way. Several members of Congress thinks oh details differ but basically they're proposing to use the mechanism that the IRS uses to collect taxes and running it in reverse to give grants to firms that suffers sharp drops in revenue because of the cove in nineteen shutdown. We are confronted with a truly extraordinary challenge. These days the government is pulled the plug on much of the economy in an effort to save lives. Congress and the Federal Reserve are trying a variety of responses to both easy immediate pain and strengthen the economic recovery from what you're sure to be a very deep and painful recession. They're going to get.

Tear Down This Wall: The resistance
"The I on curtain was not the creation of a mindset or a system which had any time for dissent. The curtain was at its height. Seven thousand in Columbus of wires watchtowers walls fences minefields and sentry posts stretching from the Arctic Tundra Finland to the Black Sea coast of Greece. This old dedicated to preventing captive people's from fleeing somewhere they might speak think and vote freely. Nevertheless there was resistance courageous inventive and surprisingly rarely violent it took foams as different as the imprison nations of Eastern Europe would different in this third episode of the foreign discs series reflecting on the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We look at Poland where the regime Asia was confronted by a trade union and joined by Pope the country then known as Czechoslovakia where revolution was led by poets playwrights and rockstars and Romania the only one of eastern Europe's liberation struggles of nineteen thousand nine to descend into bloodshed. This is the foreign desk. My impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was going to happen as they were going to get way because there was nothing credible calm about the way people are going about the strike. There there was no panic. There was no drinking no rushing around people were just waiting for the government to give in and the government did get enough to series of public negotiation. I mean we knew something something was going on but we still wear not sat in that be able to live to see the end all the system. We knew Tom Unsustainable in the long run but most of our perspective close sustainable for longer than our lives about the thing about people on television television or a heads of the secret believes in the army and they were giving contradictory instructions to people in the field but there was fighting on on the streets. Nobody knew who was on whose side and the sea turns out of course neither there or no sides there was a single side and the churches were along and they had no loyal troops in August. One thousand nine hundred eighty a group of workers at the Lenin shipyards in Gdansk went Own Strike they called their fledgling trade union solidarity and hoisted a Groovy flag based on Poland's national banner with the Solidarity Name emblazoned in red on the White Stripe in cheerful friendly font within a year of its foundation solidarity had ten million members within within a decade. It had the country a few weeks after the Berlin Wall fell solidarity leader Falesa an electrician by trade was elected. President President of Poland Kristof Bobbin. Ski Is the President of Union and Polska a pro European think tank in Wausau. He's also the former Warsaw correspondent Brandin of the Financial Times. He picks up the story in Gdansk. In the summer of nineteen eighteen to strike in the shipyard had two phases one was a phase which which went from about this Thursday to the Saturday afternoon when the shipyard authorities the management gave into the demands and tell people go home that he said we've we've got the money or go home and at that point it was. The younger workers also led by young dissidents. I suppose who went round the ship out saying don't go home. The strike is not over people out there in the restive discuss still on strike. They were driving around in this small electric electric trucks telling the people not to go home and a lot of people go home but enough state from the Saturday afternoon and I arrived on the Saturday Saturday afternoon and I saw young people saving shy making it continue into the Sunday. On the Sunday people started coming back on the Monday morning people came back and strike got underway big strike on underway. So actually I had the impression that it was actually a young people's movement at that moment it was saved by the young people by the shipyard workers wasn't quite solidarity then because it was formed as it were off the strikes extended but my impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was gonna happen this they were going to get their way because it was incredible calmness about the way people we're going about the strike. That was no panic. There was no drinking. There was no rushing around people. Were just waiting for the government to give it and the government did give enough to series the public negotiations and is the reason for those public negotiations were a certain number of Social demands pay demands but also the the main demand with for this supplements of independent unions

In fact, there is another vote tomorrow on Theresa May's plans leave the EU and with a deadline, so close the idea of a hard Brexit is becoming much more of a reality a hard Brexit for those who don't know what that is. That is the scenario where Britain leaves the EU with no deal in place. No clear. Transition plan. No new rules to govern trading relationships. They just leave. And of course, are trying to make predictions about what would happen in the scenario, which is hard because it's difficult to predict what's going to happen on doomsday. Exactly, no one has any idea. What's going to go on? And that's the thing. The reason they're having trouble with it is that there's no precedent. No one knows. It's going to happen with Brexit because nothing like Brexit has ever happened before or has it that assumption that this hasn't happened before may not be entirely true. I'm Patty Hirsch. And I'm even Brooks today on the show. We're going back in time and halfway around the world will explore Brexit precedent in the most unlikely places and see what we can learn from it.

The last time we talked to Brexit on the show was in December about a month after that Prime Minister Theresa may finally brought her plan to parliament, which you just heard for a vote the is to the right two hundred to the nose to the left full hundred and thirty two. Wow. That is the sound of defeat this rejection. And the fact that we're only weeks weeks away from a deadline makes a hard Brexit. Look, more and more likely the British government is very aware of the scary possibility, and they published a few economic reports in the subject, but the thing is the reports focus almost exclusively on the long term, which is kinda strange because the threat of a major economic problems in the short term is very real very real. Because as part of the EU the UK is bind to the rest of Europe through this intricate network of business and trading relationships that are developed over more than half a century. Those relationships are based on rules. And if you throw the rules out overnight you jeopardize the relationships. So I wanted to figure out why communists aren't taking a closer look at that short term effect. So I spoke to Peter Morell. He's a professor of economics at the university of Maryland economics. I think is a wonderful science, but it has its limitations. Means economics is really attuned to studying situations way. People are not in dissect quit Librium not reacting to circumstances. They had not into separated, you know, a communist never deal with this cutting o of of rules and cutting off of the possibility of trading on their existing relationships costs. It doesn't happen very often. You have to look for analogous situations. And that's the whole point of the checkers of accurate example that there are very few analogous situations. And that is one of them, and it was very dramatic. The Czechoslovakia example, you see Peter spent years of his career studying eastern European economies. So when Brexit started to pick up steam Peterson parallels with Czechoslovakia, it was a country that most people regarded was one of the bet of run social. A-list eastern European countries in many ways, they will God as the country that was most prepared to accomplish this mammoth task that mammoth task started in nineteen eighty nine with the fall of the Soviet Union Czechoslovakia has a peaceful revolution. And as a first order of business needs to instate some serious economic reforms. They need to dismantle the rules that govern their plan to Konami and replace them with market capitalist rules scrap one set of existing trading relationships and replace them with another. They were preparing really by destroying figuring out higher. They were going to destroy the existing institutions here. We can draw first parallel with Brexit Czecholsovakia had to remove it self from complex economic system and Britain has to do the same thing. Brexit is about destroying set of rules that had been relevant to the British economy for a long time. Time. But while it's been almost three years since the Brexit decision Czechoslovakia only had about one year. And at first things are actually looking pretty good. The economy was extremely buoyant in nineteen ninety industrial production increased over the year by a considerable amount. Retail sales were extremely buoyant rising by as much as thirty percent over the year. So after a very good economic year finally came the big day January first nineteen ninety one the day Czecholsovakia switched to a market capitalist economy, literally overnight changing this system, so Czechoslovakia walk side of the Soviet Union. No plan, no deals just an account resist this checks, it what happens a huge collapse in economic output. So we have an economy that entered a era of precipitous. Collapsed even in a country that was extremely well prepared and extremely well run. And of course, Czechoslovakia's woes did not end their the economic problems brought about a revival of tensions within the country and two years later, they separated into the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, and they're it's sort of interesting to think of England and Scotland right because in the Brexit referendum. Scotland voted very very strongly to remain in the EU sixty two percent allied margin voted to remain. So the thinking is if a hard Brexit causes economic problems in the UK Scotland might hold another referendum on independence. Then vote to rejoin the EU which is possible, I suppose, but I'll have to say I feel like we're getting head of ourselves here is it really appropriate to compare Brexit with checks it. I'm just gonna keep going the UK, right? As a modern international. I would looking at Konami tech as lavar Kia was essentially planned walled off Soviet economy there too. Very different

We listen back is radio Prague, the legitimate Royd of occupied Czechoslovakia resolve the cars crushed by tanks, and then the stories of people killed and the latest on the troubled migrant ship, the m v Aquarius Europe's refugee debate. These stories and more coming up on inside Europe. Turkey says it will increase tariffs on imports of several key US products in retaliation for US sanctions. It's the latest in a bitter tit for top dispute between the two NATO allies. That's buttered, Turkey's currency at the Turkish. Lira has lost nearly forty five percent of its value since the start of the year, I'm joined by DWI business reporter, Andress Becker. Hello Andres. How has Turkey arrived at this point? Well, first of all for the last fifteen years or so, the Turkish economy has grown phenomenally like they were double digit growth rates. It was the China of this part of the word basically. And this economic growth is the secret of success of the current president. ETA one, he's the man who brought growth to Turkey. The boom was financed through debt, mainly big infrastructure projects. And so- inflation was on the rise and when the US central Bank increased. Their interest rates, many international investors move their money to the US. So the logical thing to do for Turkey would be to raise interest rates, but Ataman doesn't want that. He calls himself the enemy of interest rates. He keeps the central Bank for doing the necessary measures, and then markets just look at it and see they should do that. They don't do that. So we withdraw money that metting against the currency. That's the reason why the Turkish currency is losing almost half of its value. Okay. Stay with us for moments. I want to begin DWI's Turkish correspondents, doyen Jones, who is in estan bull. He's been finding out how dramatic collapse of the currency has ordinary Turks. Fearing for the future..
