Iran's top nuclear scientist killed
"April 2018, the Israeli Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, made a dramatic presentation in English of what he said was a huge Israeli intelligence hall. He said it proved that Iran had pursued a nuclear weapons program. On the stage. Behind him were shelves full of ring binders and dozens of CDs. Microphone in hand. He gave a lengthy power point presentation. At one point. He emphasized that one off the main Iranian nuclear scientists was a man called Mohsen Factory today. Key part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how Dr Muslim Fuck is a dead head of project about put it, remember that name Fuck is a day. So here's his director. That's right here. And he says the general aim is to announce the closure of project Ahmad. But then he adds special activities. You know what that is? Special activities will be carried out under the title of Scientific Know how developments. Remember that name, said Mr Netanyahu will on Friday. Most in factories today was killed by a gunman just outside Tehran. Iran has accused Israel of the assassination on the president has sent. Rouhani said that the killing of their top nuclear scientists will not slow down Iran's nuclear program. This is what Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif, tweeted on Friday. Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today, this cowardice with serious indications of an Israeli roll shows desperate warmongering of the perpetrators. Iran calls in the international community and especially the European Union. And their shameful double standards and condemn this act of state terror. Well, there's been no response so far from Israel. Let's speak to the BBC's chief International correspondent Lease Do Set, whose lives on the line from Saudi Arabia is Capital, Riyadh and in the region as a whole lease. Presumably people are still digesting this news and the significance of it. Adjusting and worrying about the news. I have to say, because the region divides along those who would firmly back this Alliance, If you like between Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, the Saudi leadership on by the team of President Trump in regarding Iran is the main enemy in the region, and that would include the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, who recently signed Theo peace deals as they were called with the state of Israel, But countries like Iraq Lebanon. Syria, which have very close ties to Iran, one way or the other will be worried because what we've seen in the past when retaliation comes and it is certain to calm in some form at some time. It is often executed in the region through proxies. So I think the region as a whole is nervous. But they were nervous already because there is a growing sense in the region that this is being regarded but particularly by Israel and Saudi Arabia as a last moment to try to inflict crippling blows on Iran's nuclear program before the new team of President Biden enters the White House, talking about Joining the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal that President Trump pulled out of and has been trying to destroy ever since. If that retaliation is, as you say, certain to common, it will probably happen. In the region. When you look back at what Iran has done in the past, when faced with similar situations, what has it tended to do by way of retaliation? This is a very sensitive moment fraught with risk and Iran. Knows that everyone knows that and not not just in the region, but in many Western capitals as well. The If Iran retaliates now there is a risk and it knows it that there will be another retaliation and that the region could again be plunged into even greater attention. Just as a new administration takes takes pop power in Washington, and this will jeopardize what is already going to be a very, very difficult effort. Try to get a negotiating track underway between the United States and Iran and the other big powers who were involved in the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal. So it Zaveri dangerous because Iran summon Iran maybe thinking we must retaliate because many will remember that after the assassination of Awesome Sulamani almost a year ago. The remained scene is the main architect of of Iran's policies across the region. There was a retaliation but a limited one. It wasn't a to use a word that's often used a spectacular one. But Iran must be wondering now. Well, what will we do This time? Our honor is at stake. Our strategic interests are at stake, but they may also fear that they're being Baited If you like that, if they attack that will be a signal for an even greater escalation by its enemies in the region. It's very, very, very difficult balance now. And everyone knows that If the Israelis are behind this, what are they? What are they thinking about the possible consequences of it? Do you believe Benjamin Netanyahu has had one driving ambition. You heard him in 2000 and 18. I wasn't the only time he brought a big power point presentation to the world stage to warn the world about the evils of Iran but the evils of there not just a nuclear program but of weaponized dead nuclear program. It has to be said that Yah yah! YAH also investigated and believe that that program was shelved in 2000 and three. They also talked to the report about most in factories a day. But since then, Israel, Israeli and American intelligence have believed despite Iran's denials that that program is continuing, so I think I mean, I can't put myself in the shoes of Israeli intelligence, the Saudi leadership, but Regard the greatest danger as Iran. Anything else pales in comparison least Thank you very much. Indeed. At least two set in Riyadh some thoughts from my guests and Holly Dagres. I mentioned at the start of the program that you're Appearance today is timely. What's your take on this? Well, I think we need to look for a moment at that Power Point presentation and April 2018 after Netanyahu gave his power point to an audience of one that being President Donald Trump. Weeks later, he withdrew unilaterally from the Iran nuclear agreement and reimpose sanctions as part of his maximum pressure policy. We're now a little over two years into that maximum pressure policy, and it has proved to be a failure. It has neither changed the country's behavior nor trigger the regime's collapse in Iran. And so what's been happening here is that in the past couple of weeks U S President Donald Trump actually asked his national security team, at least after reports tell us and sought options to strike Iran over its nuclear program. And so while it was, he was dissuaded from a military strike. This possibly could have been one of the options that was floated to respond to the latest nuclear build up, which is that as part of The sanctions. Iran has decided for the past year it is going to it's going tol continue aspects or breach aspects of the nuclear court until these sanctions are removed. So essentially, this could very much be a last ditch effort by the Trump administration to tempt her on to retaliate. And scuttle any future diplomacy.

As COVID-19 Vaccine Nears, Employers Consider Making It Mandatory
"Or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's She's already already told told her her staff staff you you are are going going to to get get vaccinated. vaccinated. Some Some of of my my young young millennials millennials are are like like Saran Saran taking. taking. This This is is a a directive directive like like as as a a mandate. mandate. Is Is that that how how you you mean mean it? it? And And that's that's that's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says, you know for vaccinated I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this.

Berries Add Color to the Fall Landscape.
"You mentioned several different types of berries of the that you have in your yard in addition to the snow berry and the corollary. I know that you have beauty berry. What else do you have. Well beauty berry and i snuck in money sneaking. I asked permission. I put it in my neighbor's yard. Because i didn't have room for it to grow as i would want it to growth so it is there in my neighbor's yard get to enjoy it then. A matter of several hollies The ones that i have are. I'm going to call them the sparkle berry group now. This is very nonspecific but it is a shrub type of holiday. It does lose. Its leaves their about gone right now but at the same time as they go. They uncover brilliant red berries half the size of a small cranberry Blueberry whatever They are profuse The flowers a tiny little thing in the spring might walk by it and not even see it. But when there is a momma and poppa or many muslims in pop up so that they can cross pollinate they are outstanding and then about three years ago. I put in a foreigner so to speak. it is and a yellowish buried. one that is also pollinated by the same male and therefore i have the taller red and then headed over toward the orangey yellow of the flooring. Crab fruit is the little very of the sparkle berry group. I've forgotten his name. I'm sorry but at the same time there are several variations of red and then orange and yellow so Really outstanding type of plant and then of course the flooring crabs are in full color right now must have been a good time for them in the spring because they flowered very nicely and then there must not have been a frost at. We'll call it the wrong time because my Well my flooring. Crabs are just standing full of fruit which will then freeze not before too long and be ready for the verge to eat so it gives me two different pleasures. One and watching the birds which will swarm that tree or shrub group when he had can. And then on from there into the simply. They're looking three then. I happened to have two different hawthornes in my yard as background creatures and both of them are wonderful trees. The one right now is a beautiful orange red berry the other one. Fortunately where i put. It has no fruit. Never has that any fruits flowers white in the spring so those plants are looking good also.
What happened at the University of Chicago during the Manhattan Project?
"Next week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of atomic bombs being dropped on japan. It's one of the most controversial decisions in us. History research resulted in the weapons of mass. Destruction took place at several locations but chicago became one of the main science centers. I spoke with writer. Terry mcclellan mcandrew about the work done in the state and the reasons chicago was a manhattan project site while there were several reasons wine wise. It was the home of arthur holly compton who was a physicist who was already working on some of this chicago is also seen as centrally located in the country. So that other manhattan project. Scientists around the country could excess it fairly readily also the university of chicago approved of being a manhattan project site and supported it. This work going on people unaware of it in a very busy location in a major city. It seems dangerous it does doesn't it It was a secret project and secrecy was something that was drilled into everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project there have been some oral histories taking of people who worked on the project. And one was of william. J nicholson who helped. Create the pile as it was called. That was what became the nuclear reactor that developed the first self sustaining nuclear reaction at the university of chicago and he talks about this need for secrecy and how it was drilled into all of staff there there were known agents of the german government in and around the university of chicago and we were told that and that We were not to reveal anything of what you do. Don't take up with strangers If you're having a sandwich someplace or beer or whatever Watch out that people who may engage you in conversation. would be damaging to the war effort and that the they may actually be the enemy so one huge question that comes up about this manhattan project site at the university of chicago in the in. The middle of this metropolitan side is where danger. Was there a danger to the university chicago illinois even the mid west region and the physicists. I spoke to said in essence no the nuclear reactor that the scientists were developing at the chicago at chicago was very low powered in comparison to what we see today at most. It could have powered a two hundred watt lightbulb therefore it was not putting out the kind of radiation that one of our nuclear directors today could could do in there for the harm was not significant. Now there was some danger to the people who were in the room where that nuclear reactor was working one of the dangers. Although the scientists in charge had done innumerable calculations to make sure the danger was very small. There was still a worried that the nuclear reactor could get out of control and they took protection against that and they had what they called the suicide squad two to three men who stood atop the nuclear reactor with the cadman solution. So that in case it did run away and start to melt down. They would pour this over the pile and hopefully it would stop but as one. Scientists told me the suicide squad would not live to tell about it. The first nuclear reaction took place there and it was momentous you know especially when you think about it in terms of what would come later but at the time from what i read in your story to those folks sorta matter of fact it was a big deal but their reaction was a bit anti-climactic. They basically broke out a bottle of chianti and also signed the basket that the bottle of chianti was in and that was pretty much it. The physicists i talked to said that the lead scientists on the reactor enrico fermi was so sure he had done endless calculations he carried his slide rule around with him for those who don't know what a slide rule is. That was your pre computer calculator in the days and he cared around with him. He did endless calculations to make sure he knew what was going to happen with this nuclear reactor and so it went exactly as planned and in essence while it was an enormous event. It changed our lives. It changed science and international relations forever. The scientists there. Just pretty much congratulated. Each other broke out a bottle
What is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier all about?
"You're listening to the how in the world podcast we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions about ten minutes. Nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal. People like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research. So you don't have to veterans day. Twenty twenty was last week and we were watching the ceremony on tv where. The president laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. And i had so many so boom. That's how ideas for episodes are born in fact we've had a bunch of ideas recently. I'm not sure what that means. Maybe we've been watching too much. Tv or something. Well have been a lot of events and things going on and questions. Raise like veterans day and christmas. Coming in the spacex mission to the international space station and like our seventh grader pete. Yeah he's just a few good questions lately. And i've got all them in my notes so we'll get to them but before we get to today's episode. I have to mention my favorite veteran dad. Although he passed away ten years ago. I think of every day. He was my hero the very best dad ever in the world. No offence sweetie men take. He was a great guy he was. He had a really interesting time. While in the army. Interesting about the only word. I could come up with their first as a model for army promotional posters literally a poster boy then as a member of general macarthur's honor guard where he hung out with the general and his wife watching movies every friday night. That was a very cush job. But then crap got real when he became a forward observer in the korean war. That's the guy who's part of a team of three who go ahead of the rest of the group in radio back until then where the enemy lines are and stuff. It's a very dangerous job. Maybe the most dangerous in the military at that time yes indeed but he came home then and he met my mom and they had me. Yea so thanks for indulging me a moment to recognize him. Okay let's get to it. I the basics. The tomb of the unknown soldier is in arlington national cemetery and strangely enough. I've never been there. I know the air and space museum. So well i could give tours. But we never went to arlington national. I'm i'm ashamed really. You're mad my school for never taking us there. I don't know but we we've got to do this on our own. We definitely will. The tomb actually contains and unknown soldier from world war. One who was buried ride underneath a memorial which is made of marble like everything in dc tomorrow and the city. It has six wreaths carved into the sides three on the opposite two sides that represent the six major campaigns of world war one on the third side. There are three. Greek figures carved these figures represent peace victory in valor and on the fourth side contains the inscription here rests in honored glory in american soldier known but to god. That's just beautiful. The memorial also referred to as tomb of the unknowns actually has no official name president. Warren g harding officiated the ceremony. That laid this first soldier to rest on veterans day november eleventh nineteen twenty one the tomb of the unknowns generally refers to four tombs world war one world war two korea and vietnam. Three other soldiers were interred in tombs. Right beside the memorial. Those unknown soldiers represent world war two korea and vietnam although the soldier representing the vietnam war was removed once. Dna analysis identified him and he was returned to his family in nineteen ninety eight. He'd only been there like four years or something. The vietnam tomb now intentionally remains empty and is a monument. Honoring all of america's missing servicemen and. Women that's awesome. Yeah one of the questions. I've always had about the tomb of the unknowns. Is how they got the soldier so there's not just one unknown soldier in a war right. I mean. aren't there many. They're just one. And how did they choose this one who would be buried there and where are the rest so tell us about that. Honey yes. That's a great question that i've had to which means probably a lot of you have wondered about it as well for the first memorial. The the world war one memorial they uninsured four soldiers that had been buried in france. They put each in an identical casket and then a decorated wounded. Combat soldier made the choice from these four identical caskets at a city hall in france. He chose the third from the left. And signified is choice by laying white roses on top of that casket. That's the soldier who is in the tomb in dc. The other three were reinterred in france. That's the process that's been used to select the unknown for each tomb and yes there are plenty of unknowns. Buried all over the world.
San Francisco rejects Warriors’ plan to bring fans into Chase Center
"San Francisco Public health officials are saying not now to a plan that would have had all Golden State Warriors fans tested as they filed in tow Chase Center or at least before they got there. The Warriors had hoped to fill the place to have capacity for NBA games when the new season begins next month. It was a plan being closely watched from other parts of the country in the sports world, KCBS reporter Holly Kwon says the team is hoping what the city is really saying here is not no but not yet. With the state seeing rising case numbers and San Francisco getting dropped down to reopening tears from yellow to red health officer Dr Thomas Harrigan, but it was too risky to give the green light to the waiters plan to use rapid PCR tests. Clear enough fans to get Chase Center to 50% capacity. UCSF epidemiologist Dr George Rutherford worked with the Warriors on the plan and says the science is sound. But you do need lower case numbers to start with. He says. When they were tossing around the idea back in June, it was a pie in the sky to think you'd have a home virus test or a 95% effective vaccine. But after the last couple of weeks, it's clear the technology is they're sending a self test to season ticket holders is doable. They have the answer back before they left their house. So that for a handful of people who would show up at the gate who were given tickets or who got him through stuff up for something they would they would have on site testing for them, But you don't want to create those really long lines. You want to be able to bring the people the largest number of people that right away on about having backed up outside The city says it's open to the idea of 25% capacity at Chase Center. When case numbers allow all week. Juan KCBS
'We Are Shipping To The U.S.': Inside China's Online Synthetic Drug Networks
"One of the things that outgoing president trump did during his term was pressured. China over the drug kills tens of thousands of americans each year and much of it does come from china so more than a year ago. China banned all types of feno related compounds. Now we have learned that it sellers have adapted. They are selling the individual chemicals that can be used to make the drug and they. You're selling those ingredients more or less openly online. Our beijing correspondent. Emily fang looked into this with help from data collected by the center for advanced defense studies analyst. Michael low muller worked together that data. We spoke with both of them. What exactly to china. Due in may two thousand nineteen they decided to ban any synthetic that resembled sentinel which was a big departure from what they did. Before of banning only specific at a time a few months after this band there was a big drug bust of drug trafficking ring in china. One person was sentenced to death other people sentenced to life in prison but then there was quiet and i was curious as to wear all these people who had been selling earlier had gone and what that world look like now with this span in place how do you go about trying to find that seemingly underground world. Well that's where michael comes in. We're interested in seeing how the supply chains were operating from the point of production through sale to us and when we're looking at The salen of things we found that a lot of this activity was occurring on the open normal internet so we were looking into various advertisements that go up on these different marketplaces platforms like alibaba and other chemical and pharmaceutical marketplaces that companies reposted for in advertisements for that no one other related substances so we saw that. It was a very much out in the open. You're telling me that you could just go to a normal website Maybe not exactly amazon but alibaba's a pretty big platform mean you could go and find these things. Yes we observe that. The bulk of federal related sales activity appeared to be occurring on the clear web on ecommerce websites such as alibaba but there are also other websites that vendors use a little maintain independent websites on also using social media to facebook. It's all current very much on the open. Was it easy for you to begin. Finding the exact locations even of people who were selling ingredients offended all vendors will rarely use the actual name for drugs. So you're not going to necessarily see an advertisement that says fennel for sale. But if you know that any no holly substances are being advertise. It's very easy to find even via a simple google search. Many of these company names that are listed alongside of these advertisements are real companies. You can look them up and the chinese registry and find identifying information for them including addresses. Emily thing in beijing. What did you do with that information. Because michael had found all of these vendors with addresses. I then went to see whether these people really existed in the places. They said they were on me. Found that many of them in fact were operating in clear daylight. Many of them had offices to do sales in the middle of quite large cities in apartment buildings in shopping malls in cubicle office buildings and it speaks to how difficult it is to stop factional compounds that are cheap to make you can ship thousands of doses at a time undetected sometimes and because of the internet. These people can directly reach clients in the us and mexico and europe from an apartment building and industrial china. Would you describe your visit to one of these places. One of the main vendors that i visited calls himself. Benjamin chen line and he was one of the more active anders that see for eighty s and npr. Were able to identify. I was able to find him in remote region which is in china's northwest and during the day he worked as a salesperson selling legitimate products used in steelmaking process out there but in addition to his regular job he was also selling sentinel precursors so the type of chemical ingredients used to make fennel as well as other synthetic drugs when i met chen and his employers office. He was very nervous. He ushered me into a conference room so his colleagues couldn't hear our conversation on when i confronted him as a person who secretly dealing deadly synthetic drugs on the internet. He denied everything you know. He said he himself was not involved in any of this however headshots of him linked to fennel precursor advertisements. Do match the man that i met the phone number provided on these advertisements matches the one that chen answered and that i texted him on as did the address that he listed for some of his websites so a bottom line question then has the flow of fentanyl from china to the united states been significantly interrupted in any way by china's law enforcement. I think when it comes to finish fennel reach in the united states from china. I would speculate that. There has been a decrease in that is tough to know for sure. Though we reached out to china for comment we reached out to the national narcotics control commission which is in charge of enforcing this ban. They said that they had not seen any legal sales of sentinel class. Chemicals online within chinese borders since the ban but due to the openness and cross-border nature of the internet. Any country would have a difficult time completely eradicated illegal information. So they're saying that they have not seen illegal activity but they cannot rule out that it's not happening what we've seen in china though. Is that some kind of online activity to sell. Fennel ingredients is still happening. The us drug enforcement administration does say that. Mail shipments attentional from china to the. Us have dropped dramatically since the ban but the also says that more and more of the essential ingredients are being shipped from china to mexico where the ingredients are made into finished venture capital and then sold again into the us so the flow has not stopped but the manner by which it's reaching. The us has changed realistically synthetic drugs. Vendors are finding ways to work around the spin and some ways that are technically legal even if the effect is to be selling deadly poisonous medic drugs to people outside of
Biden team should get access to intelligence briefings
"Republican senators have congratulated Biden on his win at least six more GOP senators Josh Holly of Missouri, John Thune of South Dakota, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Rob Portman of Ohio, James Lankford of Oklahoma and Mike rounds of South Dakota or saying that Biden should at least be receiving intelligence briefings even if Trump won't order his appointed head of the General Services Administration. To officially recognized Biden as the president elect here is sent it around to South Dakota. Look, one of these two men will be the president, United States after the election results have come in. And I think at this point, just as a matter of Protecting our nation's interests. I do think that both the president and his and his competition here, the vice President Biden should have access to those classified reports. Conservative British TV host Piers Morgan on Friday afternoon urged Trump to concede on Twitter GOP strategist Karl Rove said Thursday that Trump's lawsuits won't change the election results. Cindy McCain also told CNN today her deceased husband, former Senator John McCain, would have wanted Biden recognized as president elect You Beecher, he would be telling these people it is time that we that we move on. It's time we heal. It's China. We support our president elect and also encourage the G s A to release the funds so that the heat and get on with his transition team. Cindy McCain is an adviser to President elect job. His transition team. Trump's press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany, and White House Trade advisor Peter Navarro. Both gave interviews on Fox business doubling down on the idea. Trump is preparing for a second term. This came as major news outlets today formally called the State of Georgia. For Biden and North Carolina. For Trump Theologian. Toral Vote count is now 306 for Biden and 232 for Trump
Infant Sleep With Dr. Harvey Karp
"Everyone. It's martin straight from san francisco today. I'm connected with dr hallway Holly why don't you introduce yourself to our listeners. Shirt thanks martin. so i'm a pediatrician. Practicing in los angeles at practice for many many years out here. And then i'm also an author. I've written a couple of weeks about babies and toddlers and guides to help parents. I'm very happy they've been translated now into about thirty languages. So it's it's helping parents all around the world and then most recently a few years ago created a new type of a baby bed. That's a responsive or robotic baby bed. That improves sleep. Keeps baby safer. Something called snoop awesome well before we dive into this new. And it's all about maybe you can explain what really build the foundation also for your book and what i really the core issues towards you know incense first couple of months. Yeah you bet. so as a pediatrician. I observed that parents were struggling. You know especially these days. Parents don't have a lot of outside help. They may not have extended family around and so crying and exhaustion. Were really weighing on them a lot. And in fact when you look at the numbers. I mean you think crying babies. You think well i mean. It's a nuisance. But i mean how bad is it really but crying. Babies and exhausted parents cost our economies billions of dollars in terms of marital distress postpartum depression. Anxiety car accidents obesity. 'cause you're overeating chris. You're tired and not exercising child abuse neglect the too many visits to the doctor and billions of dollars more in terms of employer cost because of poor productivity and poor retention. You have to recruit people higher errors and accidents and even higher healthcare costs. And so this has been a struggle that has increased over recent years as parents. Are you know have less and less experienced taking care of babies and our way from their extended family and so as a pediatrician. I started observing. That believes could become d-. I mean everybody's known. This that by rockingham attrition them and cuddling them. That's something that comes babies down but no one had figured out. Why or. how do you do that. Predictably so that even very fussy babies can become down and so what. I came to realize that babies are born with a reflects which is kind of an off switch for crying in an on which for sleep called a calming reflex and a babies. Have lots of reflexes are born with you. Know things like swallowing and sucking and blinking and crying. Even that is built into a baby so they have those abilities which are required of them to be able to survive right. a baby. Who didn't know had a swallow wouldn't be able to survive so these are survival skills that are kind of built in software into the computer but what wasn't realized that they have an off switch for crying and an on switch for sleep as well That's a reflex. So when i realized that it kind of opened up the idea about the fourth trimester i of course babies in utero of before. They're born there three three trimesters as the baby develops in. Then they're born but our babies kind of a weird way. They're not really ready to be. In the world they're mushy. They can't even smile yet. Based lift their heads. they're really fetuses. But we have to give birth to them because their heads are so gigged otherwise they wouldn't fit out right and so the job of a new parent is really to imitate the womb for the first four or five months of the baby's life.
The world reacts to U.S. election results
"Reaction around the world to the Biden presidential win? CBS's Holly William's reports from Moscow from America's friends, including Israel, there were the normal Matting niceties. The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was all smiles, even though Joe Biden has called him a clone of President Trump. I look forward very much to working with President Biden and there were fireworks in India. Celebrations in the ancestral village of Vice President elect Kamala Harris. Many around the world, perhaps even here in Russia will welcome the return of a more predictable, more conventional American foreign policy when President elect Biden takes office, perhaps, although the Kremlin says Russian President Putin will not congratulate Biden until legal challenges to the election are resolved. And the result is official
Must Have Shrubs With Ken Druse
"This time to try to narrow down our list of must have shrubs to the real standouts and tell us why i can margaret. I know you'll never get it to three. It's funny you said that because when we first started talking about it you said one and both of us that we can't pick one. Can we even pick three right So which of your books. We always give copy of what looks only talk on the show at with the transcript of the show. What do you think i mean. Is this one for shade gardeners this one for. What's this one for a cheat garden shade garden would be a good a good one. That's always a huge hit so good good. Good good So we're at you. And i in our lives are at what a another expert friend says is the shrub season of our lives which is sort of rather than crawling around dealing with lots of fussy high maintenance perennials. It's kinda great to have some big fillers like mature shrubs to do a lot of showing off and yet not ask a lot of us. So where do we begin. What's a shroud. i guess. Well a strobe is a multi stemmed plant of woody plant and i guess that's sort of describes a tree would have one trunk one stem herbaceous plants die down to the ground soft tissues and shrub is a woody plant. That is bushy bush. I don't like that word for describing his trip but it's rub can be bushy. Okay okay and we should say before we start naming our desert island trump's that we didn't include khanna first because really that can that's a whole other conversation So many shapes and colors and textures among those so Do you remember your first. Trump been is still there and is it a favourite or it didn't make the list. Well i get. I get to pick three right okay. You want me to tell you. My first well you said conifers. And i'm not going to talk about converse but my one of my favorites shrubs is. Evergreen is a what is called a broad lead evergreen and it's a bucks it's a kind of boxwood. I have too many of them. And it's a box with semper barons. Graham blondie yes and it is one of the most colome ner plants i've ever seen really but It's a shrub and it's minor. There's probably i have some. That are like seven feet tall and fifteen inches. Wanted if you can imagine that. They're they're like punctuation marks. You know they're like exclamation marks in the garden. And as i said. I have too many because when i first got i always wanted them and then a nursery not too far from here a lot of them. Nobody bought them and the price kept going lower and lower and lower. I think i have made. I may have twentieth them when they were eight dollars a piece. Wow that's a lot of exclamations. A long time. I know and i i also keep moving them. I just moved three boy Son they want son you know. I'm sure they would love son. But i have all my box with. I don't have any full sun. But i have some of my boxwoods in quite a bit of shade and they stay calendar. Sometimes i tie them up because the snow might split them a little bit or you know splayed them. They don't break. But i do. I do tai the ones that are floppy up for the winter. And i love it if you says boxwood called graham. Landy columbia okay. I don't actually have any evergreen things at all on my list whether broadleaf or coniferous And i was thinking when we started this conversation today on the phone that my first trump passion was the genus vibe burnham. In back in the day we had a lot of divi burnham's like the double file and so forth that turned out to be kind of invasive and a lot of areas of the country. So i don't grow those anymore. But lately i've been cultivating more and more native ones like the maple leaf a full liam then tatum the arrow would and so forth So that was kind of where my shrub journey began. But the thing. I have the most of you said you have a lot of grand. Blondie is winter. Barry holly speaking of things. And i don't know what came over me. I mean it was the birds that came over me early on here in this rural place having been grown up in the city. You know coming here meeting all the birds and knowing that learning that they liked some of them liked fruit and that the native hollies were one of the ways to fuel the migration in the wintertime. And i planted about forty five or fifty of them in three very large groups in different directions toward the perimeter of the property but in different directions where i can see them from key windows in the house at a distance in the winter and all different varieties and Big ones small ones. I got a lot of fruit and birds a like very much. And yeah so waxwings and robins like in you know hunt flocks at one hundred or whatever at a time will come in right around now november ish and again to pick over at At the first snowfall and so forth and they'll strip them all pretty early on but one trick with winterbourne. Hollies if you want some that will last longer for your visual interest. The non red varieties they. The birds leave them longer. They're not as interested in them. So many yellowish orange ones and so the lighter colored ones and the winter
How does the Electoral College work?
"This week's episode answers the question. How in the world does the electoral college pick our president. You're listening to the how in the world podcast we're we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions in just about ten minutes nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal people who like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research so you don't have to well. Today is thursday november fifth twenty twenty. And it's been a quiet couple of days around here in the. Us assure was there was something on tv to incessantly. Watch and keep checking my phone about What could that possibly be wrong. Oh how about the twenty twenty elections. It's been a wild couple of days folks in it. Looks like it could be wild for a bit longer. So let's all practice are deep breathing and relaxation methods together. Bring your popcorn as the time that we're recording this. I believe the elections come down to maybe four states that haven't yet counted all of their votes but once they're done it's still not over no not even close because once all the votes are counted will know what the results of the popular vote are. But we won't officially know yet. Who won this election. And that's because not only will there be a ton of lawsuits than we unto way through but also because we don't elect our president based on the popular. Vote like you would in the classroom election elementary school. We use the electoral college. And i've always been a little foggy about the electoral college. So i'm glad recovering this today because it forced me to dig deeper really kind of learn about it or you could have just asked your wife who by the way is a political scientist by education. You know yeah. I've been told that. Before so i get a little invested in presidential elections and the preceding debates and political discussion. So what it's fascinating and also frustrating and maddening and kinda stupid also but so fascinating the strategy. He's not even close anyway. Let's talk about the electoral college. Yup that's why we're here. So let's do it and by the way we're going to refrain from any partisan right discussion. This is just about the electoral college. You won't know who we voted for. So for starters you know how annoying all of those census ads and like postcard mailers and mail and information and more ads and everything was reminding us. How important is that we fill out our census form so that everyone is counted yet. And i remember seeing a ton about the census recently. But i believe you filled out the form. Since you're our families designated form filler outer am. I joined it because again i am a political scientist so data and surveys and stuff like that matters anyway. The census is used to determine a lot of things most notably funding to your state for certain services. So if you have a disproportionate number of school aged kids for example it tells the. Us government that you'll need a disproportionate amount of funding for schools. I mean that's really dumbing. It down but funding is a biggie. And doesn't also tell you how many representatives you'll get in the. Us house it does so every state gets two senators so there are a total of one hundred senators in the us senate but representatives are totally different because their allocated based on the census count. Yes they are. There's always four hundred and thirty five of them. No more no less. But how they're allocated can change. So if everyone emptied out of california which currently has fifty three districts and therefore fifty-three representatives and moved to wyoming which currently has just one representative. Those numbers would turn on their head. And by the way. Alaska delaware montana and north and south dakota and also vermont have just one representative yes and there are also some non voting delegates in the hell. They can do everything. The voting members can do except vote. Hence the name right. They can introduce bills and participate in committees Currently there is a delegate representing washington. Dc as well as one each for puerto rico. American samoa guam the northern mariana islands. And the us virgin islands. They're also talking about adding a delegate from the cherokee nation and from the choctaw nation which is super cool. Yeah it really is. And the senate and house together are called congress and there are a total of five hundred thirty five members of congress. So that's that hundred senators and the four hundred and thirty five representatives. Each state has the same number of electoral college votes. That they have congressmen or women which means each state has a minimum of three electoral college members. Two senators one representative three so for the the smaller less populated states. They're still going to have three electoral college members.
"holly" Discussed on Plant Of The Week
"I was out looking around the other day after a little bit of rain and see what good that had done and looked up and and brushed my shoulder against the shrub. That's I don't know seven feet tall thousand or so feet wide couple three of them. They are Holly's this particular group of holidays are called Sparkleberry. There are a number of shrub types of holidays. Mine happens to have the reddest of red flowers They're the size of a half a cranberry in terms of that but a brilliant red sign sign theme and then there are the other holidays. If you're lucky enough to have a well-drained organic soil that can be or ears a little acidic the American holly tree which gets very large and and doesn't quite a beautiful job south of here in Columbus area. That is south of Main in an area that's got some age to it. There are a number of large American holidays they happen to grow wage. What was the old River Bank area of the Olentangy then one that I do not understand have not understood but it is an American holly. It stands right behind the sidewalk sidewalk is south of the tree then six feet in the curb and then the hot blacktop the driveway gives a heat off the blacktop all morning long all well all midday. It is in the absolutely wrong position presently twelve feet tall and has to be trimmed back in diameter. So it doesn't block The View coming out of the driveway. So that is the Holi story. There are many many kinds and they do require a better soil than what I'm going to call our average Olentangy River junk long does work into the process, but you need to add a lot of organic either compost or peat moss then add some powdered sulfur and so on so that you can get it. Let's just say well drained and acidic then you can log So darn your any Holly and I well my Sparkle berries are fifteen or twenty years old and each year. Well, they don't flourish in size anymore. They've picked out in size. Like I say seven eight feet tall and and white, but they're they've been generous in flour. And then when it comes the time where the dead birds I'm going to call them and principally the Robin are flocking in the middle of winter and there's been a couple of darn good freezes. That's often those little berries. I have counted them if they'd hold still I would know better count but I've counted twenty five or more Robbins on that shrub in one given point and in two days, it's been picked clean and they move on looking for food so it can be a pleasure. If you it can feed the birds. And of course the red orange belly of a rabbit in the wintertime is quite something. So that's those then I just yep. To throw in for interest and color and bird. Well call it food. The seed heads on many of our plants the the well, let's check. There are several groups of plants. I happen to leave the cold flowers and I don't have very many of them, but I'll leave a cone flower into coreopsis and so on those things that have a seed-spitting head on them the Fitch just love those little rascals. So I leave them and other things then we turn to the shrubs and there I have several shrubs including viburnum that are now in in either a yellow or red stage of fruit. Some will go on and turn black and again once there is some fries if softens the fruit same with flowering crabapple birds can eat them now, but I suppose they're full of element a little hard to digest it's pretty solid yet. But as soon as we've had several freezes, which I don't necessarily personally look forward to but it's dead. For the fruit and again, the birds will just go crazy and where I like to do what I can to preserve nature those things will be left to stand and I enjoy the tan colors and so on edge of leaving grasses stand. I leave the other plants looking wintry. I happen to enjoy that that leaves something in the garden, others want to clean up totally and that's fine. But those things are that the big deal for this week..

Oh my God I'm I'm still a Weirdo but I'm not alone in my Weirdo Nestle. Other people deal with these same sort of weird. Brain jumps where you're processing the world differently from other people, and and she's just so witty and Sharp, and I mean who wouldn't be in love with that so yeah. Yeah I mean God. She was the best and I think they. I think they handled her passing with class and as best they could. And I think they did a good job kind of weaving her into that story in a way. That wasn't didn't feel contrived. And I really liked that her daughter was very much a part of that process and very much sort of the keeper of that legacy, and making sure that it it. was. True to what you know. Her mother would have wanted in that case so.

Is there a sheep or go for? That wants to talk about Star Wars. And, in my version, some cute little gopher raises his hand and like sure. Yes I really liked Babu Frick. So before we get going on rogue. One though I thought I would love to just hear a little bit about because everyone knows you love star wars, but I don't know how often you've in a public forum. You've been able to talk. SORTA personally about your entree into it and what it means to you and what it meant to you then. Yeah so for me, Star Wars and I share birthday a new hope, which was then just called Star Wars came out my six per day to mazing. It was just so cool and. May Six may. Twenty fifth. Why is it? May the fourth be with you then? Because it sounds like may the fourth correct correct it was when may twenty six twenty fifth may twenty fifth. Yes, okay so I was born March fifteenth, so I'm really couple of months older than you two months older than me. Okay, Yeah and so. There may have been some coercion to get an older sibling to take me which they did not relish, but there was which didn't matter because five minutes in like everybody else stopped existing to me anyway I was in a movie by myself Again being six and seeing that on the big screen, and not really knowing what it was was like the best mind blower. You can't replicate that. and then my favorite part of it is a kid and still is griego. Here's why agree though because I remember so distinctly when greet, okay, onscreen like we had seen other alien species already we had seen Joe is at that point in the film and and mysterious. Really interacting with humans in a big way like the was kind like, make their little and they gesture, but they're not really conversing, right? And greet was the first character that came into a scene, and he had seen with Han. Solo and they were actually talking even though he was speaking hotties, which by the way nobody ever talks about how multi-lingual Han Solo is, but that's the thing. It's a good point, right? He just picks up everything. but I was like so excited as a kid. Yes, this is actually what I came to this movie for was alien talking to humans? And then he was gone and I was like well. Shit..

"Week, but then I also immediately thought about my seventeen kids that I taught that year in the classroom. And never once did I see a tube of sunscreen on the school campus. Despite the fact that the children were on the playground in the middle of the day, and often even staying an in sports in the afternoon, no one was wearing sunscreen. And and to be clear with the vast majority of us are not wearing sunscreen all the time, right? This is just not part of our. It's not. It's like brushing your teeth. Most people don't just don't do this. This is two thousand five and you start to think. What like hey, maybe maybe I can figure out a way to get people to wear sunscreen all the time, not just at the beach. was that what you were thinking like?

"Didn't see anywhere other than my grandmother's living room, and and I thought Gosh, if I could switch gears and play the harp it. Would you know there's not a lot of competition? You could be the best harpist because there are bright. There probably weren't that many around you. And everything sounds beautiful on the harp. When even when you mess up, it's pretty. Yeah by the way is a you know a fifth grader sixth grader. How did you carry the harp to on wheels? it has a Dolly and you learn how to handle it. It's not so much that it's heavy as that it has so many moving parts, but you're not bringing the heart onto the school bus, no, no, and in fact I played at home, and then for the talent shows. Of course I'd show up, but it wasn't really until high school that I began getting really excited about the harp because I saw it more as A. A business and the I the idea of creating a business around holly, the Harpist was exciting to me. Why wait so you? As you sort of got better at the harp? You Thought Hey, this could be my business like you're thinking this. In High School. I was I was actually already working on the weekends and every Sunday for Brunch local country club like in the dining room. You would just be in the corner playing the harp. Be Holly the Harpist, the harvest and I kind of set my price, because there wasn't a lot of competition, so a really started out playing for one hundred dollars an hour, which was a lot when you're in ninth grade. Wow, all right, so you are. Holly, the harpist playing harp am for money, which is awesome and and you decide to go to school at Louisiana State University, which is not that far from from where you live. I guess. And what did you? Did you study music there? Yes I did so I was never really that great of a student I I spent those first two years in college studying music. I totally did not fit in with anyone in the music school. I realized how serious the musicians were in college, and I was more interested in doing what I was already doing. Wish was performing and playing and I was at the time. You know still getting jobs in new. Orleans at the Museum of art and I played a little backup for Aretha Franklin when she came through. And what a what what whow? What did you? What did you play with Franklin Amazing Grace Wow, that's i. mean if there ever is a song to play. Play with Aretha Franklin. You run the hard man that's amazing and look. It makes me sound like I. was this Great Harpist? But like I was so winging it. I had no idea but I knew I couldn't say. No and I had no business I. Literally had to break down every measure and that reading music type student you know, but you keep in mind like I enjoyed the business of holly the Harpist way more than I enjoyed playing the harp, so if you I mean if you didn't enjoy playing the harp that much. Like. What did you decide that you want do professionally? So I had also grown up because I think I'm so such an organized person, and I love pencils and supplies and things. I grew up thinking that being a teacher would be really fun and I often even when my little brother we get home from school and you know, keep in mind. He was seven years younger than I was. I would sort of start. Start a new session in his room and get worksheets for him and pass out my sheets, and and so I thought well, maybe I should. Maybe I should be a teacher and I guess that's what you did. I read that you. You went onto to study education and got your first teaching job. I think in in Baton Rouge that is right. It was so there was a private episcopal school in Baton Rouge, that was actually I, later learned was quite difficult to get a job there as a first year out of college, and how was it? It was fantastic, so I had a wonderful year. I poured my heart into doing. Everything that I had learned in college. I also kind of looking back now I think I, poured my heart into outdoing every other teacher in the school, and kept my eye on trying to impress the the board that had given me the opportunity to be there, but. I loved every second of it. I am in fact I? Still talk to those seventeen students many of them. Today. But from what I've read, you only will only a teacher for a year I. Mean You have this in? Promising career. What why aren't you a teacher today? What happened? Yeah so? You know the end of the school. Year came when contracts are placed in the teachers, boxes and I didn't receive one and. And the school said they were not offering me a return contract, and I later learned as a first year teacher. You're considered provisional. And they said you know. This was due to problems and concerns that were were brought up from. Teachers and not really fitting in well. What does that mean? Exactly I. I didn't know either I did a lot of exploration at that moment, but I was devastated. Yeah, you know had gone to college to to third grade schoolteacher, and and here my career was seemingly ending very quickly. And then you Denver got any more specific feedback. Like what was it that you did or not do or? I did I did and I learned you know I was SORTA breaking rules? I wasn't eating lunch with other teachers I wasn't hanging out in the teachers lounge, talking and connecting and and I I was being completely honest with myself I did feel a little claustrophobic within the four walls of a classroom and they were in a way. Right did constantly look for ways to sort of leave campus early or I'd say I had a hard job and and double book myself and you know it there was. That wasn't in the cards for me and yeah, but you know after a couple of months of exploring these these things I just decided I'm GonNa move on. It is amazing though that setbacks can actually be a blessing that you don't. You don't realize the time right like Hugh. Had you had this amazing year and renewed your contract and you stayed there. You might not have ever done what you did. Absolutely I'm so grateful that. Played out like it did because I don't.

You're in good. You're in good company. Oh Man I I had everything else find on on the first day and then I totally gifted on that the human right. That's right. Well welcome to the show. Holly I like to start off the show by talking about where more people you grew up like both where they grew up in the states where where they did and sort of what their initial religious upbringing was like as well. So let's let's start there. Where where did you get your start? Yeah well you know what's interesting is you're sitting in Chicago right now right. Yeah that's right. What neighborhood do you live in? I live in Rogers. I just park in the far side. So Yeah I consider myself as cargo in. 'cause I lived there for probably fifteen years when I was I didn't high school. I grew up in the suburbs. Out in Elgin okay. Yeah I went to high school in Naperville so different parts of the suburbs but also gration. Yeah Yeah And then when I moved into the city actually and I love Chicago so much everywhere I lived in Lakeview Lincoln Square Square Buck town I kind of was all over and I love Chicago so much and just picturing you and Chicago and picturing turn Rogers Park and like hearing the L in my memory makes me really nostalgic because I've been living in La for the last six years. And I But I but I consider myself a Chicago and yes it's a great city in it's it's got the neighborhoods have such character and you know they're very distinct and I'm a huge booster of Osha Kogyo and the neighborhood of Rogers Park. I know that Mike Rogers Park is known for being like an affordable place but also a little a little dicey I think it's I think it's growing out of their reputation. Just because it's one of the places where he can have an a have a larger place and and you know where younger families can get a start without making bank. Yeah that's great and are there any Lou Malnati's L. Matt he's up in writer's cards because like I think loom out that makes life worth living. There's a there's a donnas but there's not a luminaries there's Yeah there's like peons in bloom and Edgier Donnas and of the big ones. That's the one that's here. Yeah I think those are not even in the same category I'm still and for people for those. Hey friends listening or like what in the hell are you talking talking about. We're talking about a pizza place. Called Lou Malnati's even though it sounds like we're talking about the aluminum. I just think people that make life worth living bring in. I think that's the best pizza in the world and people who should on Chicago style pizza. I just know that we're never going to really connect. That's fair I I like I'd lose Their Saas doesn't it's my favorite of all the Chicago spots but other than in their sauce. I really like lose. This is a pretty big part Blake. I know it is part of it but anyway. Sorry I'm off topic but I grew up. my My Mom and dad I I was born in Chicago suburbs and then When I was like a toddler my family moved to Niles Michigan which is in southwest Michigan? Just on the other side of the lake and I lived there until I was twelve and then when I was twelve we moved back for the Chicago. Suburbs and So then I went to the College in Indiana at Anderson University in Anderson Indiana Church of God school down there and then Yeah and then probably moved to to Chicago. I went to Indiana Wesleyan so right down the road. I Know Indiana Wesleyan. My Dad is in was growing go traveling like a traveling evangelist and Now he's now. He's a teaching pastor at a mega church but he I remember he did some like spiritual emphasis week or something. Indiana Wesleyan and I came over from Anderson to like see for the night and hang out with them and I always love to watch. Watch him do his thing and Yeah I I remember always being like are are these Wesleyan's Okay Dad. And he's like yeah. Yeah they're cool. You know all the different like sex. And everything like Rome I remember when we pulled into Anderson Indiana when I was like moving into my freshman year college dorm and I saw that it said a Church of God school on the Sinai was like it's Church of God. Okay Dad and he was like yeah yeah. They're pretty cool. So did you. So as your your dad has a traveling evangelist. Did he have a denominational affiliation allegation or was he a freelance evangelist. He was more like a free He was just really bringing the good news of the Gospel in introducing people to a really cool. Jesus who I loved like. You've never been loved before baby and so yeah But at home we went to a Baptist Baptist more specifically northern Baptist Church And because my mom's dad was the pastor at First Baptist Church of Niles Michigan so I I grew up and was baptized Baptist Church real sort of traditional like no clapping. Oh Heavens and You know all the it was just run by a bunch of white guys and But it's Kinda like Niles was a blue collar town. I when I was really young. My parents were in a Christian rock band. One I ever Christian Christian rock band seventy like called the good news circle and So they they got married In college started this band. The good news circle started traveling and like putting out albums and like really had a lifestyle going with it there for several years and and So that was my like really early life with this kind of like rock and roll road show And then when my mom I kept having kids in my family total like we settled a Niles and My Dad he had started to at the end of like their music shows Jones. He would kinda give this message about you know how much Jesus loves you and like it would be this big emotional kind of altar. Call thing you know. I watched I watched every night in my life. You know growing up and so he just started to more and more like speak more and more and then when the band finally busted up doc he just stayed a traveling evangelist and so for Until I was like twelve daddy was on the road constantly and so like in in the summer time or when we were on break from school and stuff he would take one of us at a time with him just so he could like get to know us because he was just always gone. Oh I Yeah so I would Yeah I would just be on road trips with my dad like driving all night to get to the next place to get to the next church to do the next thing I would. He would start to include. Include me in little like skits and sketches and stuff. He would do to Kinda like make his message is more dynamic and stuff and So yeah I just saw kind of in front and behind. The curtain grew up really proud of his ability to work a room to move people and he's very charismatic and he's he's a great storyteller and he's funny he's good looking. I just I was just like my dad's the greatest you know it was like really I mean I know. Everybody's parents fall off pedestals but like I had him up there so damn high yeah And so so yeah and then and then When I wasn't on the road with him back home I was In Christian school and Church because my GRANDPA was the patch or the church. We were in church Sunday morning. Sunday night Wednesday night Christian school chapel a three days a week Bible classes five days a week. It was like everyone. I newest Christian every thought I had was Christian. Everything I knew just did like in all reality was just like this evangelical or kind of like you know. Protestant capitalist title is sort of American Christianity and and I think what happened in those early years to be really honest. I I think you bet Evangelical can be very brutal to all types of humans Mentally psychologically emotionally spiritually. We all that stuff But I think there is a specific thing like for females at least for for me just being very emotional being highly sensitive. Have I really really struggled because I can remember being really young I can I have. I have thought of like being so so so oh young like I have memories of even being toddler and stuff and I remember kind flake when I learned the alphabet. And when I learned about like gender and all that stuff I remember Knbr just really being like having a more infinite mind and being like Oh like okay so now I know twenty six letters. I can't wait to learn more because they must be infinite and gender must be infinite and everything must be. I just remember being very and I was oh strong willed. I had like likes such a strong sense of self and I just Kinda came into this world already acting just fresh out of Fox and like Very very very hard to discipline like my. My poor mom was basically like a single mom with my dad was never there and I was just so strong willed and like I like disciplined disciplined. Didn't really work on me. I almost saw it as like a game of like okay so she got one and now I gotta do something okay just had the strongest sense of self and strong and will and kind of I feel like I got here with a lot of like muchness and bigness and What I think happened opened in those early years is it just got beat out of me? So dreadfully so painfully and and and the world came crashing. The Christian World came crashing rushing in is so small and limiting and for me very like frightening and traumatic and and it made me hate myself Alfred. Fear God you know the like the fear of God for me was like actual terror just being who is like you know knows everything sees everything is keeping track of every like thought instinct behavior habit impulse desires you know like and it just really truly scared the absolute Shit Outta me and and kind of in the way. If you've ever seen someone like break a horse in the worst possible way by like just literally breaking their their there will and their spirit like. I kind of feel like. That's what happened to me over the course of being exposed to those Belief system like really not only just not helpful helpful in helping me as like a small creature. Learn how to navigate the world and occasionally experience joy or something it just really like it CR- crushed crushed me and all that like muchness and sort of vision and and strong will and everything that that came so naturally actually to me in the beginning just sort of toppled into this like very fearful anxious. Shame just like so filled with like shame mm-hmm dread and Just like so. I got really traumatized I like I sort of have sleep disorders to this day because I used to always try to stay awake. Like saying the sinner's prayer all night long in case I died in my sleep. I was just so afraid of going to hell like my dad. My Dad was casting out demons that like you know revivals and stuff and I'm like whoa weird that team and go you know and I was so afraid of a demon coming inside of me and taking me over and me becoming coming a host of of what I was seeing as a kid which people like foaming at the mouth and is rolled back and everything it took me like well into my I twenty or maybe even thirty goodness gracious. It's maybe not to be like. Oh people in big crowds with like music and lights and everything in have seizures when they're epileptic and like they're they foam at the mouth in their eyes roll back and guttural noises come out of their body. That wasn't a demon like trying to like fight to stay in it..

And we want to hear a little bit more about why didn't more involved in that kind of stuff numerously he co hosting with us. It's been awhile since he done.

"Right? So continuing on Holly hangs up the phone and goes to answer the door. The theory says that it's Sydney at the door, David's father, I've straight up. Ask this question because I've wondered why the police seem to think it Sydney more so than David. It seems to me almost like David would have more reason to be there than Sydney. Correct. And what I've been told is that something that Holly said to her friend or something that was later witnessed has led law enforcement to believe that it was in fact Sydney at the home and not his son. David. Very interesting. Apparently, under this theory, Sydney is there and he's confronting her about her being pregnant or the possibility of her being pregnant. Right? Right. Because if she's bregman, his son's life is over well, it's at least going to change his mind. It might be over, right? That's why I mean, and so he's confronting her about being pregnant. And the thought is that he's trying to talk her into getting an abortion. He is worried that Dave is going to drop out of college because of this pregnancy. So during her talk with Sydney Holly decides to call her father's office. But his told by the receptionist that her father already left for his meeting in Atlantic City. So. Okay. So maybe he's like, call your father. I wanna talk to your father, right? Possibly. Okay..
"holly" Discussed on True Crime Garage
"All right. Cheers. Cheers to you. Captain now staying on the thought that the possibility of the murder being known to our victim Holly Branagan we have to go into a slightly different theory. Okay. This is someone still known to her, but somebody much different than George Wilson. And for this we need to introduce a guy named David l. tring him. Okay. He was a little bit older than Holly everything I could find. It seems like David was the same age as her older brother Sean, and that the two of them had actually been friends or at least friendly with one another. Okay. And I've also been told that the l. touring him family was friends with the Branagan's or at least again knew each other and we're friendly, right? So Sydney l. tring ham is David's father. He was a professor at north Hampton college, so a professional man, but a guy. With a bad reputation, none the less and we'll get into that according to police. Holly was sexually active three days prior to her murder. The autopsy showed this. I'm not really sure how they come up with that that she was sexually active three days prior to her murder. But that's the information that I've found out there. All right. So where you going with this? Well, under this theory in the days before her murder, Holly had told a few people that she was pregnant. Now, the top see showed that she was not pregnant, but right it we have a couple of different situations here. One, she could have just been saying that or two. She may have had sex with somebody in thought that there was a possibility that she was pregnant or going to be pregnant. Right? And let's keep in check that she's a to the junior in high school. So word of this under this theory, word of this started getting. Around and it seems that she was sleeping with David l. during ham k. lately, this is the David's the same age as brother, right? A little bit older than her and may have been friends with her brother Sean. At one point, they may not have been officially dating, but according to this theory, the two of them had some type of relationship together. The following is a mix of facts, police theory and testimony from the people hollyhead spoken to before her murder, and I'm going to kind of take you through how this theory works out minute by minute on the night that she was killed, Holly and her friends plan to go get pizza. That's a fact we know that that was going to happen at six PM Holly is on the phone with a friend between four thirty PM and five PM during this call the doorbell rings Holly then implicates to her friend who is at the door and tells her. She'll be back. She'll call back by that. What I mean is one of the following either Holly literally says the name of the person she thinks is at the door or is at the door right? Or says something along the lines of it's him or there's a man at the door, right? This could either imply that it was someone she was expecting or imply that Holly knew who it was from something as simple as recognizing a car, possibly outside of her home. Law enforcement has never announced publicly who she said or who she believed was at the door. However, there are statements captain out there. That law enforcement seems to believe that there was that. She said something that implicated that there was a man at the door that the person at the door was male. Right? So the initial report that we said was when she's on the phone with her, she. Said someone's at the door, but but we have reasonably that there was more information given correlate. You're saving correct. There was one statement that was given to the public and another statement that was given or kept by police in law rise out and make sense. Oh, because if that's a very strong lead than you don't wanna show your hand..
