The top waiver-wire pickups for Week 3 of fantasy football
"Tap waiver wire picked for me this week. Is going to be 40 Niners runningback Jerick. McKinnon makes sense. McKinnon is available currently in 73% of ESPN League, so widely available and with the most injury, coupled With Kevin Coleman also being gone for a couple of weeks. This seems like an opportunity for the big free agent signing for Kyle Shanahan Step up and have Ah productive week and at least for a couple of weeks. I think he's the at least for this week. I think he's definitely the best ad long term. Maybe not because most it will return. So if you're just looking for help for this week, maybe a couple of weeks. Jerick. McKinnon is your best bet this week on the planet Jets, other playing A. Who cares? The Giants there. Still, I stayed in New York and you look the Giants Steelers. The Bears have run the ball on the Giants, and they stayed in New York. They're playing the Giants, so I would think that that's they're going to try to ground and pound. This is saline advice is always from the update and grapple is positive, right? Like they think he's gonna play? Yes, Okay again, though, it's it's obviously Tuesday, so it's hard to say anything definitively. But my cannon is the top waiver wire pick up, especially If you're hurting at running back, and if you have sake one if he had most, sir, if you had McCaffrey, and now you're starting to Sergio. Look, Yorgos got to start Jamal Williams from crying out. I got Jamal waves in my story. You might be hitting your waiver wire to pick up Jack Kennedy on the can, For sure, he's gone in one of my All right. Who else? Hide Let me fire Rams running back. Donald Henderson was highly drafted. You have Malcolm Brown, who left last week's game with a finger injury, along with Who's the other Ocampa and left with a rib injury as well. So Darnell Henderson stepped in. I think I believe you had 80 total yards from scrimmage. So Donald Henderson is my second ad. He is available in 54% of leagues. 50 44. That's good Darnell game this week. Rams and Bill's about it to Owen omits to know that those of a good man, that's an exciting game. This's now I'll give you a couple of guys right here. One's more of a long term play. The other is going to be a better bet. Immediately, but probably not for the long term. Joshua Kelly, Los Angeles Chargers, he is it looks like he has stepped right into the Melvin Gordon roll from last season. Austin Heckler obviously, is the main running back that you want with the Chargers. Things were better. With Justin Herbert under center. It's undeniable. Tyrod Taylor comes back. I'm I'm not nearly as enthused, but I have a hard time believing Anthony Lynn is just going to give the ball back to Tyrod Taylor. If Justin Herbert continues to be productive, why

Kraken Cryptocurrency Exchange Gets US Banking License, Plans to Be Global Bank
"Today's guest is David. Kennedy CEO of Crack Financial Welcome David. Hey. Thanks for having me on. Laura. On Wednesday and cracking announced that it was the first crypto currency exchange to win approval to launch a bank congratulations. Thank you. It's a big day for US sister Yup. Well, we'll crack and financial the new subsidiary being launched be able to do with this status. Yeah so there's a couple of. Objectives that crack in launching this. The first one three well, the first one is regulatory. Look. We're going to be in a much better regulatory position here as a bank in a consolidated fashion without having to go state by state and the money transmitter regime or something like that now. We're also going to be as a bank to conduct certain activities that we wouldn't otherwise be able to such as serving as good control location for custody. The second reason we're pursuing this as because of infrastructure, the bottom line is the digital asset industry has challenges getting good banking partners. Now, Kraken is fortunate enough to have very solid third party banking relationships, but the fact of the matter is it's still very important for. US to get direct access the federal payment system and be able to integrate that seamlessly into our customer products and experiences. Now, the third reason is this an entirely new product and distribution platform. Again, we can offer products that we would otherwise be able to as a non bank and serve customers at such as institutions that we wouldn't otherwise be able to search. So for those three reasons crack and found this very attractive. and. So from the consumer's and or from a crypto users and what will the new crack and financial mean for them like what will they be able to do that? They couldn't do before? So for existing customers of crack at first, they won't motorist too big of a deal. They'll be regulatory update on the back end of how we're interacting with the different agencies in the US. But then we do expect them to see certain quality improvements like I mentioned before we are going to have direct access to the federal system and able to more seamlessly integrate funding and withdrawal mechanisms and payment mechanisms into our products, and so they should see an increase in quality of customer experience and perhaps a. Cost benefit as well, and then the really see the difference once we start launching products, things like a debit cards backed by digital assets, things like staking things like IRA accounts or other tax advantaged accounts things like a wealth management investment product services. The list goes on and they'll see that institutional customers roles is the big difference because we'll be able to offer qualified custody and other similar services and qualified custody would mean like for hedge funder something where they're doing that on account of accredited investors there. Last craft, and then also there's the separate but related notion of serving as a good control location for broker dealers for clearing purposes. And what kind of CRYPTO assets will cracking financial be able to hold for its customers in? Do you expect to approve those one by one or does it as I'm sure you're well aware I doesn't have to stay away from assets that may be considered securities, which has been a major concern in the industry over the past few years. Yeah. So I think it would look a little bit similar to how at first how cracking does it today which goes on has a framework and risk assessment process to go through different types of assets that are supported by it services. And as we move to the bank that would initially stay the same that said there's a possibility that we could expand that last because a bank can actually deal insecurities and commodities unlike a money transmitter or something like that. So even to the extent that there is a risk of a particular asset being deemed a security were still able to support it as a bank. So. What would you? How would you say that that would combine with this current trend? We're seeing in defy where these new tokens get launched very quickly and very very quickly become a huge market cap coins and we are seeing other exchanges such as coin base launch, a list, some of these quite soon after their formed would we expect something similar from crack and financial? I. Think it's a we'll have to see how that plays opposite new trend and the bank is just for me. I think there's two ways to look at it. One is what's going to be occurring on the track exchange and obviously that operates globally and so it's at the craft exchange level or at the and financial level and then in what jurisdiction and so obviously there's different laws and regulations and others similar dish last exchanges do the same thing. It's available in some jurisdictions and not on. So yeah, we would love to be offering things and assets as they come out as quickly as possible to the extent that they are reasonable and suitable for our customer needs obviously customer protection and the safety and soundness of our institution are absolutely paramount.

"Flooding flooding unfolding unfolding across across parts parts of of the the Metro Metro area, area, Metro Prince George's County, Inter Montgomery County, the eastern side of the District of Columbia, Northwest Washington as well and parts of Arlington and that's where we will begin. George Washington Memorial Parkway is flooded and we understand impassable between four mile run in the south entrance to Ronald Reagan National Airport. That's a limited access by way, which means you're going to have trouble turning around. I think there's a wall on the median strip there, which means once you go north or south toward that area of high water, you might be stuck trapped between that rising water and the drivers behind you, And that's one of the many dangerous on a day like today, it's not as simple as just turning around. In some cases once you commit, sometimes you are stuck. You're put in a very dangerous situation. 3 95 South bound flooding before Glebe Road at most, only a single file.

'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' is ending after 20 seasons
"You either loved it or you loved to hate it. But after 20 seasons and 14 years, the reality TV show keeping up with the Kardashians will come to an end in 2021. If you are in the love to hate it Category, the show follows the lives of Kim Kardashian West, her mother, Kris Jenner, and an ever expanding cast of characters and its subjects. Became more famous and more well known as the show continued in a statement Kim Kardashian West posted to social media, she said, quote without keeping up with the Kardashians, I wouldn't be where I am today. Unquote. Well, we asked Julia Alexander of the verge to explain to us just where Kim Kardashian is today. Here's what keeping up with the Kardashians really did is led to a family monetizing themselves. They were the people that you were willing to watching. You wanted to watch, but then you are also buying their products You were signing up for meet and greets and the idea of With the Kardashians are able accomplish was born out of this concept of Web 2.0 of blog's and the tablets that came from blood on the rise of social media. They were able to dominate that market and turned themselves into a product even more. So in the show. The show just kind of acted as a vessel to get them toward. They are today. But what was it specifically about this family? Like, what was it about their relationships, their dynamics that kept sucking people in when the show first started, there was this beautiful Sisterhood with them all, And I think what I really claim to what I really came to was no matter what was happening in this show. In the early seasons, Kim and Kourtney and Khloe had each other and always came back to each other in their mom. And that was what their life was, as the show progressed, and as they became more influential as became bigger celebrities, the show became this really sorrowful. Strange kind of connection of people that there was no choice but to kind of watch because their lives were so dramatic and so public and in many ways very sad and I feel like we were so tuned into this family that we had this kind of para social relationship with which is a one way connection between us and then because we believe We knew who they were. Well, I am having trouble imagining the Kardashians suddenly disappearing after the show is over. So what do you think they're going to do next? The beauty of the Kardashians and this is what they inspired Entire culture of instrument. Looters and tic tac creators and even YouTubers to really understand is that they are in many ways bigger than their name. Even they are individually if their own brand so they can come out and go. I am Kim Kardashian. Kylie Jenner, and I don't need to have this show in order, Tio elevate my celebrity and using that slowly there no going to monetize every aspect of themselves. So what they're gonna do next is just be them. Well, if you had to sum up the legacy of this show, and I am surprised I am even using that word. But if you had to, What would that legacy B. This is going to sound outlandish, and I know it's going to sound that way. But there's a fascination to the family ethos of the Kardashian's. That is very Or reminds me I should say specifically and personally to me of my obsession with the Kennedys in a lot of ways, which is this family that is a form of American celebrity that you you just can't turn away from. They were able to create that for themselves out of nothing because they were B list celebrities at best, and now they are Global celebrity in a way that we have not seen in a very long time because the Kardashians and the Kardashian Jenner clan at large, is

A Conversation About The Postal Service
"Low. Welcome. To another edition of call us, Bruce unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I'm Phil You and Jeff Yang and this week on the podcast we have been thinking and talking about doing something for a while and our wishes are finally coming true as if delivered to us. Our. I'm sorry we've come. A Dad jokes attention but we we've been talking a lot about the postal service, not just amongst ourselves but in society right I mean the relevance of the US mail to our society internal democracy has been more prominent now more than the headlines now than ever before, and one of the things that we recognized is that the postal service actually plays a really critical role even. Specifically in our communities and there are. There are a lot of Asian Americans who work at the Post Office The post office connects us are far-flung relatives and friends, and in general we just thought it was time to give a little shine to this institution that. Is taking a few bumps, these days, and so we actually found. A postal. Service employees who was. Happy to talk to us about this profession and about the stories and. The world behind the scenes at the post. Office. As, well, as other things going on his life as well. So we love to welcome to they call us Bruce Kevin Again UN. He is a musician and multimedia. A graphic designer, a fan of A. Pretty Amazing Music. I can tell social platforms and also a employee of the PS Kevin Welcome to the show. Hi. Welcome guys. Ola. So Kevin you're in Oakland right. Yeah. I wouldn't opened. And did you reborn in scripture? I was actually born in southern California and. Always, knew that I would end up in the bay area. So sometime around two thousand and two, thousand five moved up here. And I found myself. Here. To sort of blend in. Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah. And and you say you're from southern California originally like a like Los Angeles or or. Montebello okay. And now A. End, up actually working for the postal service. Honestly. I was laid off in rather time the pandemic. was. Gaining momentum. and. I was desperately looking for work and I I had heard this echoing my head, my mom's voice. You know like you should go work work at the post office like your uncles grandfather. Finally listen to the voice. And Sure Enough I. went onto the USPS site. And, saw their openings locally and swint for and they ask for references. Internal references and. Plugged in some family members names, and I was pretty much and within twenty four hours. In the family. It's a family business. It really is. Yeah. How many of your other family members worked for the postal service that are alive to? But. But it's it's been like kind of multigenerational thing or it has absolutely. Is there. Is there something about the post office or the Postal Service that has been? particularly. Peeling I'm guessing in some ways it's because it's eighth always there be. It. You know like they're always jobs in the postal. I. I just Kinda remember Hollywood shuffle under if you've seen that movie Robert Townsend movie. where? Kind of what you're saying is one of the themes in the movie that. His family's like A. Get A job. The Postal Service it's it's you know it's it's a secure job. You know it's comfortable. It's something which you can rely on and Robert Townsend characters like I wanna be a star in Hollywood but you know as a black actor in Hollywood. You gotta deal with a whole lot of bullshit and movies about the bullshit and. Kind of like you know no spoilers or yes boilers. Movement. You haven't seen it. You should see it but. In the end in the end, actually the post service ends up being a where he lands and and you know he's it's sort of like a celebration affected like you can still do when you dream of but other things can also be part of that dream and anyway I'm kind of curious if if that's kind of the story of how how like your uncles and other folks in working for the post office to. For my grandfather. I believe he went in right after he was discharged from the military e- so he. He had served in the Cold War came back They relocated to Daly City from Dallas. and. I think he that's it hired pretty much on the spot. And it's still the case to this day So he he was there until I moved up here. And two, hundred five. I remember him getting village. One Am and coming home. And afternoon. He. Yeah it's interesting my Uncle Sam deal with him in Minneapolis. He got out of the Air Force and became a carrier pretty much immediately. And my uncle Kennedy in. Hawaii. I think he started in Minneapolis, but then transferred to Hawaii, which is apparently. The most requested transfer. Why And he's been a mechanic for. Sixty years. He's he's been there for a long time I. Think he's been here the longest. Everyone fixing like postal trucks, postal trucks, the machinery he's he's really handy guy i. mean he used to build birdhouses? Similar skills I guess.
Has Globalization Undermined the American Working Class?
"America's working class has been cheated is an assertion that has been getting a lot of currency lately are last presidential election went deep on that claim in both parties by the way and the culprit most often blamed for that. It's that monstrous five syllable word globalization, the philosophy and the practice of free trade which has been great for companies and for shareholders but has had a devastating impact. It is argued on the American working woman and. Man Well Economist do agree that in the past four decades the American working class, which we're defining tonight as people who lack a four year college degree. They have seen flat wages and a steady disappearance of good jobs. But is globalization a main reason that that's happening to those workers and for those workers is globalization entirely bad. Well, we think this has the makings of a debate. So let's have it. Yes or no to this statement globalization. has undermined. America's working. Class I'm John Donavan, and I stand between two teams of experts in this topic who argue for and against this resolution globalization has undermined America's working class as always. Our debate will go in three rounds and then our live audience here at the Saint Regis Hotel and Aspen Colorado where we are appearing in partnership with the Aspen Ideas Festival will choose the winner and as always if all goes well civil discourse, we'll. Also win a resolution once again, globalization has undermined America's Working Class Jared Bernstein you have debated with us before. So welcome back you're a senior fellow at the center on Budget and policy priorities. You were Vice President Joe. Biden's chief economist. The last time you debated with US interestingly Jason Furman who is your opponent at the other table tonight was your debate partner as a team you were formidable formidable I, almost want to use the French pronunciation. Formula, so are you planning to use your insiders knowledge of Jason's debate battles against him to very much am the way to do that with Jason is to make a lot of sports analogies because they repealing confusing. All right. Thank you and I see you detail to Aspen. You were a to aspen well I. Think the guy with the tie is the guy you want to listen to, but I'll let you decide. All right. Thanks very much. Jared Bernstein and can tell us who your partner is. This someone I've known for twenty five years she's a dear friend of mine and I consider her my mentor in this topic feely gentlemen feeling. Theo welcome to intelligence squared your president of the Economic Policy Institute. You've spent two decades as an economist for the AFL CIO, which is America's largest federation of unions. It represents some twelve point, five, million working women and men. You've spent twenty five years working on trade policy. So what got you interested in trade? Well, when I came to Washington in the early nineties I got drawn. INTO THE NAFTA debate the North American Free Trade. Agreement. And I realized pretty early on that. This was not some kind of a dry text book discussion about tariffs but it was a transnational battle over democracy good jobs, workers, rights, and regulation. So I was hooked because a lots at stake a lot is at stake. Okay. Thanks very much thelia once again, team arguing for the motion. And motion again, globalization has undermined America's working class. We have to debaters arguing against it, I Jason Firm. Welcome back to intelligence squared Jason you're a professor of the practice of economic policy at the Harvard Kennedy School you're a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, you were Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Obama tonight. As we said, you're going to be debating your former colleague Jared Bernstein on the impact of globalization. So is this the first time you to have debated the globalization issue with each other jared and I agree on I'd say about ninety five percent of economic issues and my goal tonight is to bring to one hundred percent. Thanks very much Jason and can you tell us who your partner is someone I've only known for a few years and every single thing. He's ever told me I have believed James Manica Legitimate James Manyika. Welcome the first time telling squared you're a senior partner at McKinsey, and company you're the chairman of their economics research arm, the McKinsey Global Institute, your first time debating with us. But not your first debate you debated at Oxford I did you studied robotics and computers earlier in your career you were visiting scientist at NASA. So how do you go from very eclectic from robotics and space to thinking about trade policy? In American. Workers I've always been fascinated by the kinds of technologies that drive innovation and growth, but also affects what will people in the real world actually do. So when you put that together with the economy, these issues around trade and workforce become very, very important. Those are the issues that motive a great perspective to bring here and then once again, thank you. Thank you again to the team arguing against them.

Interview With Danny Cannon On Gotham
"Cave. Bite has one of the show runners of Gaza. Danny can. Talk to me at the beginning of season one. What was the visual sensibility in aesthetic that you are trying to get across in Gotham as opposed to the other Batman related projects or you just trying to make this totally different? Well, no, no no. Completely different because you know I wanted to fit into into this great cannon, the work that's been gone for seventy five years. but at the same time might make it contemporary. And at the same time, it's twenty years from from Batman basically. So. We talked about a few things myself in the rights and when we first met and it seemed like everything we had in that first meeting as played out which is. New York in the seventies was was a a brilliant dangerous time like light seventies. Not just because of all the graffiti on trains and the rundown and Harlem, and all these dangerous places that you could go to his fooling down places but culturally, it was really good music films. It was a hip hop star. Know. New Wave. Everything. Would it culturally it was really great. We talked about that law but the talks about the Kennedy in. London. And and the have and the have nots and that industrial revolution age and. That something I wanted to bring into the fact that city that hasn't been gentrified yet is still locked in the past and probably falling down a little bit. So all the sets of design slightly askew with like slightly going down you know like the whole thing is crumbling been held up with good and things like that, and then the last thing we spoke about was rim fairy tales and and the fact that as adult fairy tale element to. To honor the comic book idea of it. And so those three elements thrown together. And then must is to keep your feet on the ground. So it's it feels really reliable. It seems like it also has a color, its own color Palette jet texture that we haven't really seen in other comic book adaptations to now I mean that was just because with all of those influences coming in there are certain gels you caught through. There was a contemporary look we didn't do. We could do a test now bicycler whereas like is this often cars that cars this governed governor it's the same thing as colors and. Trying to get the crews taste and and and the performance tastes into that same thing. It's it's good and it was easier than we thought. You know it's it's quite. Nobody knows what period is if feels comfortable because it feels very familiar. That yet, but nothing sticking out you to to portray that. Theatrical reality that was one of the series executive producers and Danny Cannon, whose asked if Gotham itself as a character in this without doubt. Yeah. Without doubt that's why the show that was very much. Bruno's intentions had to be a character and all the designing I did was was was on that. Was myself in the production. drew for a long time just to get I found myself. It wasn't just drawing the new buildings that wanted to insert into New York will take away the glass buildings out of New York. Older Dickensian style attended the century English buildings It it I I. Drew Skies, and that was I don't know where that came from US listened to music and I'd start during stormy skies everywhere and I was like. That's it that stat stats when I got it was when I I put stormy sky on everything. Now, Gotham is a huge hit on twitter. How do feel about beating every other show on twitter are really Fila get on twitter? Obviously doesn't need me. Yeah right yeah. I think that's wonderful I. You know to be talked about Israeli sometimes even better than watched I think it would be I. I. It's Great. As long as I can promise those nice people that allowed that to happen that the show gets better and better, and there's plenty to talk about are there any character storylines you would like to bring in that you haven't brought in already? We have a great relationship with DC and we sit down with them constantly and Ask about origins of various characters and. It's amazing. How many don't have Origins. Many characters just turned up his bad guys you know in the and so. It's really. We feel on to be able to go back in this. Great. Legacy and and and UH. site. Okay. So how did they turn up like that? How did they have? So. Yeah. Now we're having a lot of fun.
"kennedy" Discussed on Blind History
"Friends. They knew everybody who was anybody. In the nineteen sixties in America, and the shrive is really were American royalty for want of a better word. They had the association with the Kennedys, but they went in the direct line of fire like the men in the Kennedy family were that daughter, married Arnold that's right Maria, and ironically on developed heart conditions, often marrying into the family for all intents and purposes, Arnold and Maria marriage was mostly happy until he started having sex with the made, but. They had lovely children and Patrick is not an actor. He's a good looking blunted and the daughters Katherine Schwarzenegger Okay She married Chris Pratt. and. She's by all accounts everything that the Kennedy Women's best strengths were and none of the none of the bad ones, but who knows they've got? So, after UNICEF, this Patricia, who's Pats? She married law food, and then we come to bobby. Bobby. Really had a chance of becoming president, and he was president-elect. Yeah, and by all accounts. Everybody said he was a real impressive smart. Strategic and really warm. Human being everybody loved Bobbing Jackie in all of her memoirs wrote. What is support? He was after Jack was assassinated. And Bobby had none of the burning desire that the other brothers had in some ways he was a lot more calm and he was happy to be the attorney general for Awhile. You know they used to talk while he. He was Attorney General. About little brother's watching you because obviously elder brother was the president but I. I don't know whether anybody really knows the story of his death in this Putt cost, but he was also fascinated, and he was shot while leaving a political ran. And you know famously. The actual moment of his death is like his brothers captured on camera. And Saran Saron is the guy who did it right. You're very much mob related Lockley we'll because he. He went after the mob during his time as attorney general, but it just didn't capture late. What chose stood for in this family? Apple Jack. That was jive jaded everything. Three Bobby was the campaign manager prison. He paid for Jack to getting the water, and then bribe to every head to everybody, and he actually famously said you know I'm GonNa. Pay For you to get into the White House, but I'm not paying for a landslide. Incision But while go back to Joe actually wants to power in new Manica game to power. He was anti Semitic, but he was operating with my Linski, who was one of the famous mobsters in New York Luckily John Italian. He operated all of them and he kept that link. The Chicago mob. Secured that constituency for Jack Julieta struck in sixty one. and. Jack was did. And Bobby. Traumatized, but he had a chance yet to be his own man, he was a president-elect in other words earlier to do get sworn in. Let's just spend a minute on bobby. Because he's really interesting. He was well known for advocating the Civil Rights Movement for the Civil Rights Movement his fight against organized crime, which we've referred till ready. He was in office during the Johnson Administration for a few months. And, then he was ready to beat Kenneth Keating. In the Senate race in New York which he won, and then he opposed all kinds of racial discrimination Vietnam War. He was on the right side of all of these things. He was friends with Martin. Luther King the. Guy had voters of all ages, but most of the young voters lots of African American voters Hispanic Voters Catholic. Voters the kind of constituency that the modern democratic. Party relies so heavily. And he was mortally wounded than when he was shut by the Sarah Sarah, who was twenty, four and a Palestinian. Allegedly, it was in retaliation for his support of Israel. But, a lot of people are saying they're mob links as well, and it's just the most incredible sad story, because now we're onto. You know five kids are this. Gene was the next one. She was the eighth kid she married. A Smith and then final one was ted. Edward Kennedy. He lived the longest of the brothers, but also had this really tragic life in some ways because he was on his way to the White House to. And then he had this incident with Mary Jo Kapit, who died in that car accident in Chappaquiddick where he? He really didn't do himself any favors. Because he was order, they were driving too fast. He drove off the bridge. She drowned and he only reported it like the next afternoon. He went to sleep. He woke up the next day. He was panicking. It ruined his chances of being president with a duck, but he was a good senator. He ended up being a terrific senator. He He created and promulgated a whole lot of very powerful legislation, which remains in force in America today. He was for a long time. The Democrat leader in the Senate. And whether it was a majority minority, he was the guy and was really. America's conscience in some ways for a long time, and even Republicans have to begrudgingly give him respect. I didn't know a lot about Ted. I just know yet a of Rantings Eddie. As an demons definitely and between those three Ted Bobby and Jack, they also just had six with every viewer in Hollywood. Remarkable. Just the Kennedys would just constantly horny Marilyn Monroe another famous one Marlene Dietrich. And Joe was sixty with twenty four year old for nine years. He was with Mike and when she wanted to go on a diet. Yet A fit, so it's just incredible. These these Kennedy's I mean. We just scratched the surface. Ultimately beyond that there was the next generation which also went through tragedy, and we can just touch on those jacks, children. John John was actually John. Kennedy Jr.. He was killed in a plane accident. He was piloting plane with his girlfriend. Caroline, it says. Your Day to day Hannah and a whole lot of beautiful girls, he had George magazine which launched, and then he died in this tragic plan. He was on the the task, so to speak. Absolutely, he was the darling of east coast median and his sister. Caroline is really the only survivor with declan in blood, and she's got three kids who seem to actually look quite a lot like the girl. Jackie! And The Sun looks just like her brother. It's true it's exact. But some of the others. skied into a tree and died. A number of them had drug problems alcoholism. It's just a it's a disaster. They call it the Kennedy curse. You know that this family drew had advantages and worked so hard in so many ways just couldn't get pastas, and it's own about Joe, you know. Joe Story I mean that's one of the most incredible stories operate. Although, we go! That's the Kennedys I mean we leaving a lot of homework for you on this one because it all into one episode of what a family. Blind.
"kennedy" Discussed on Blind History
"She left. And she left living this laugh and Joseph Kennedy by then was rich, dabbling in the Hollywood studios as mentioned earlier, and he sits them, look. We want to launch the great movie, and so they started a company together partners. Eat lavish gifts on her, but she left. For Coats and a cough or a director. But then she's noticed near the end of the relationship that was sitting around in, and she said to him I noticed that the car that you bought for this director's claim of my expense account company. So he didn't say a word, he took his handkerchief yet as us a scary us. You dabbed these lips he got up. He walked out, and then she went to see what he wasn't was telling estate he was gone. He went back to the east coast. Never spoke to again, and she ended up with a ton of tax problems. Tried to contact him to help him out of the text issues that she had. She ended up being broke while because she asked a Christian. He was such a dichotomy in fact, because although he was the strong father who imbued kids with huge ambition, and gave them the privilege and advantage that he could, he was also hot as you've just described, and the best example of her haughty was. Is Daughter Rosemary the eldest? who was born, they used to say mildly retarded in those days, and for much of her childhood they had realized that she was actually a little bit deficient I mean part of the reason for that was because during the time of her birth, the Spanish influenza broken out. They went any doctors on coal, and they had to wait for a doctor, and the nurse told rose to disclose legs which. Kept the child in the birth canal, and as a result, she was deprived of oxygen, so she came out a little bit slow. Should apparently a very low I Q, and instead of. You know kind of just medicating or waiting or taking trouble with her. She became an embarrassment to Joe and he decided to have a lobotomize at the age of twenty three. Not lobotomy in those days was a horrible operation because what they do, say to open up your skull, and they take something that looked like a butter knife, and they would keep you awake and they asked her to Sing God. Bless America and recite the Lord's prayer over and over again. And they knew they'd gone too far when she stopped. So you imagine the cutting the brain and in order for them to know that they've gone far enough or too far. She just stopped reciting the Lord's prayer. And then from there on, she was like two year old there that was. incontinent, she couldn't speak properly. She was put in institution in Wisconsin for the rest of life, and she any died in two, thousand and five. Something it was just horrible the real. Sad part of that for the rest of the siblings as they didn't even know because. He died didn't mention Rosemary and he never went to visit her once when they found out that she was in the institution, it was nineteen, sixty, eight or something, and then Eunice and I. Think one of the other sisters probably gene. That that part of the reason that younus eventually founded the special. Olympics was because of what had happened to Rosemarie direct and eunice became like the caretaker, the family and ended up. Looking after all the different kids and grandkids, who adult with drugs, and had alcoholic problems and and Rosemary I mean she lived a long time. She did eighty six or something she lives here and our unto kid number three in its tragedy tragedy. Not Kid number four kick Kathleen is was sick to marry the Duke of Devonshires, eldest son, the Marcus Huntington this was a perfect story. This is so Kennedy. You know as she would have married into the English aristocracy. This is a wealthy nobleman. They Une Chatsworth in Dhabi share, it's just the most magnificent family to marry into, and they're all thrilled. And and Kathleen was this beautiful effervescent creature. She had freckles. She was just lovely, and she and the mock of Huntington got in a plane, and they had a plane accident over the Swiss Alps. So. She was gone at a very young age, so if you're rose and Joe. You've already lust two kids to death by the stage. One is in an institution lobotomize D- Another is going to be president, which should bring you some joy, but later will be assassinated in the most famous assassination in history, and we're only onto kid number four and I mean it just looks like the bad luck. Their created bad luck because. They were Catholic Protestant. The Duke. So the Madison you will not, Merriam. To kick. Can you imagine Joe Intervening? Sir Say. Where you're going to get compassion from him. Say Meeting Peres so that fateful flight was to meet the dad because she was trying to reconnect with the family. Rose was A. battle-axe actually yeah, she was less very pious woman hugely into her Roman Catholicism. I think Pope Pious. The twelfth eventually made her a papal counter it that's right, only six American women to have achieved that title. Sort of a religious and Jackie Kennedy said I think Jack's mothers to brought and she would rather Sarah's. You then read a book well. She's a scary woman in historical terms, and obviously she went through huge tragedy. The old joke is does rose Kennedy Black Dress. Because, she went to so many funerals said. She had very strong jaw and your kind of jutted out quite luck. Night watched an interview, her and Youtube the other day. Had this Friday the voice. So, she was a strange woman and says riddled. Riddled with prescription drugs Oh really yes, taking everything because she had to deal with Gyro. I mean he was operating. Will ever the place and children are dying around? Luckily, the Fifth Child Eunice lived to old age. She died quite recently. Actually she's the mother of Maria Shriver and the rest of the shriver family who had terrific by the most normal of the Kennedys. If you could save it, yeah, however much that applies, but she also married. This terrific guy called sergeant was actually is name. His rank in the military sargent, Shriver, who is a very very smart intellectual guy. They used to host parties with all the great writers. Writers of the time you know, go vidal their.
"kennedy" Discussed on Blind History
"Blind history the Kennedys now we've done an episode and John, Kennedy, who was president of the United States, famously assassinated in Dallas Texas, where we decided to take a closer look at this family, because they were remarkable and the father of the whole lot of them, the father of all nine kids, the dynasty effectively was Joseph. Patrick, Kennedy. And he was born in eighteen, eighty, eight. He died in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, nine, having had to witness some of his kids, dying and some real tragedy along the way which will get into, but Joseph married famously rose Fitzgerald whose father was the mayor of Boston and that was the beginning of the Kennedy Story, the real camelot tale the developed from there, but he was an incredible guy because he made a fortune in Bethlehem steel. He became assistant secretary of the Navy. He was acquainted with Hollywood and refinanced several Hollywood studios I mean by the time the guy was thirty. He was a multimillionaire and from there. He became a leading member of the Democratic Party of the Irish Catholic community. The president then Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed him as first chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission and later to the Maritime Commission. He was appointed to the position of United States invested the United Kingdom where he famously had a weekend at Windsor with then King and Queen, and the two princesses and their family in Britain may be developed this fairytale reputation. You know this guy who was this real. Real go-getter, the snow nonsense, American Irish Catholic, who just had come out of nowhere, and how he and his wife just dominated the social scene in the UK, and give people an idea of what the new America would look like nine kids that they had, and I'll go through them briefly just so you know who we're talking about along the way, but the eldest son Joseph. Who Was Joseph Junior? Then there was John was called. Jack became President Rosemary. Who will get in a minute Kathleen? WHO called kick? Yunus who married Sergeant. Patricia they called Pat Married Lawford Robert Bobby. Jean. Who Married a Smith and then later Edward the youngest of the mall, Ted, that's a brief overview of the family, but while such to cover with the Kennedys, my host Anthony Measure of the MD of time, blinds and shutters. This is one of your favorites, because my God. There's no lack of stuff to talk about here I. Love the Kennedys for good reasons. Bad reasons larger than life. Just incredible, Joe. The grandfather could spend a story. He could really spend a story and he knew exactly what he wanted, but he's grandfather came from Ireland. So he always painted the pitching the press that they came from they came from Ireland and came to America broke in other camps. steerage like one of those Esley. But what happened what his grandfather did? Come over because of starvation, the feminine in Ireland and Straightaway he managed to acquire the saloon in the harbor in Boston and east. None of them drink was all about. How can I get ahead? How can I get a hit? What cannot do to get ahead? Who'd on to convince Brab? And, so he used to sit in east saloon, and used to offer was ski to all the people that used to come in and listen to all the stories, and that's I developed at so. By the time he son was born, he'd gone a long way to definitely above middleclass. Oh. Yeah, and he sent which was JOE's dead. He operated Boston lecture up right at the world yeah. He really put Joe into all the right places and he was the one that introduced Joe to John. Fitzgerald was the mayor's daughter. Joe was very average in school, but he managed to get into the top schools. He was quite a good sportsman and say you wanted to play the Princeton I team baseball, but he wasn't that good. So He's dead. Properties in the captain's dad was in a bad way. The loss game of the season. They put him into the team, so he could have it on TV so. It's just incredible just to give background of the Kennedys coming from Ireland And what top of persona they had already and that just driving. You know they they. There's an ongoing discussion about American meritocracy, and how that contrasts with aristocracy. In Europe and you know who you descended from is more important in Europe and America. It's what you can do and who you know, but it's also about money and I think Joe. Kennedy realized that early on which is why his first stop was to make a ton of money, and then after that he pursued all the other ambitions, but he. He realized he couldn't ever be president. He was a bit of a Nazi sympathizer. Certainly an apologist, good friends with Neville Chamberlain while he was ambassador in the UK, and kept on talking about. Don't worry about this war thing and keep appeasing hidden, interesting, Semitic anti, Semitic because the Irish Catholics at that stage, where by definition anti Semitic, but he realized that what he had done during his career up to then had precluded him from running for the position president, but he would have if he could have. And he said to himself at some point that me make this happen for my children, and obviously the eldest son. Joseph was being groomed for this Joseph. A bit of a tragic character was really good-looking, really athletic. He was the apple of his father's I. Being the eldest son to he had all the hopes and ambitions of his father drilled into him from an early age. He joined the military. And to counter long story short, he's actually flying over Europe. When he was killed, and that was the first of many tragedies to befall this family, he was awarded the Purple Heart the distinguished flying cross the navy cross, but all of this posthumously, and that was a huge blow to Joe's ambitions for him, and for his eldest son, so he just transferred all of that to jet. Jack felt it. But what Dr Joe Genia to do that stupid flat, because the war was almost over, and what happened was there was a certain area that kip hooting England in the war with the Germans sampled on the beach in France in bombing England, so they cannot for the strategy to make this flying missile. I mean they're gonNA parachute out, but what happened was. The didn't even know, but the navy reading sorted out in two days before blown up the spot. But Joe wanted to go so badly because of what happened with Jack Jacket or eighty, one this middle. Yeah, when he was in the Navy when East P craft sank and he saved some of his crew. Joe Junior Cities Kirpan. We have to earn his policy nine hundred, and it's not right. I don't WanNa do it. And blinded by ambition took it and turbulence hit the plan, and it blew up in English Channel my God. We're not gonNA talk too much about President John. F, Kennedy who called Jack. Because we've done an episode on him already, but suffice it to say that he had a lot of challenges. He wasn't the ideal candidate in some ways, and although he was the second child he was also. A, very tragic figure in some respects I mean. He said he had a great childhood and a great life. Most of the Kennedys grew up in this idyllic Kinda, Hyannis Port Summers and Palm Beach and off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, and you know in boats and traveling to interesting places going to these Ivy League colleges, so it wasn't as if they had a horrible life, but I think Jack's challenge was that ultimately his presidency would be eclipsed by his assassination, and he had many women during his time, which is something he had in common with his father. His father used to be. Like the biggest leth Oreo in Hollywood. The book he, he would invite Hollywood starlets to their house, and in front of rows hit on them. You know that poor woman, but interesting story we talk about notorious. At ultra but. Set Lori Swanson was these star sonnet movies and he hooked up with her and.

"Him get it out of the system and he clearly he calmed down. I me I never saw him doing anything like that. You know when you got a little older as John. Junior grew from child to man the pressure of living up to the Kennedy name and perhaps the growing dread of the Kennedy curse would only grind with him. There may be a reason for it that it may be there. I mean from the time they're little kids growing up people come up to him. Say when are you going to be president. And especially with John F. Kennedy junior because not only was his father father president but his father was assassinated. So it's almost like hey pal when are you gonNa get this back. It's almost the pressure is on on so under normal circumstances the pressure is on these aim sakes they tend to do things that are self destructed. They become alcoholics. So that's something that happens naturally but if your dad is assassinated it's kind of like hey are you gonna let him get away with that. You're you're supposed to take it back.

"He enact that that role as the swing justice you know i think my impression of justice kennedy for mine a year with him was that he was pretty decisive you know there were times leah has written that all just as kennedy clerk's counter clerks at some point that they're taking the opposite view the justice and trying to persuade him of something else but i found that you know the areas where he might have seemed indecisive where he didn't he didn't agree with you from the outset and you were trying to persuade him and with the benefit of hindsight and may have been simply tact that he didn't tell you you're wrong but you know i find him to be a fairly decisive there were times when i would try to persuade him of stuff and in over the course of several days he would you know work as way around to know there are also there were admittedly though there were cases where you know even if he had an impulse you know he took all of these cases very seriously and you know even if he had an idea which way he thought they were going to go he you know he thought about him he as he said to me you know he brooded about them and i had the you know very twentieth century facts fax machine in my office i would come in and you know discover you know that he had sent a fax you know in the wee hours and say you know here with the product of late night brooding and it would be his thoughts on something and you know there were cases that he really thought long and hard about but i think that was really more a matter of refining his thinking wasn't that he didn't know which way to go it was kind of refining his thanking from what i could see trusting indeed than not idea brooding in the seriousness with which took these decisions christopher justice kennedy voted at least in the nineteen nineties to strike down more federal and state laws than any other justice what was his vision of the court's role in checking populace democratic excesses and did he believe that citizens would indeed rally around the courts vision of constitution that united them i don't know the be fought of it as a democratic excesses as rather vindication of rights and liberties i suppose by definition anytime you enforce a constitutional right you're overturning a democraticallyelected statute but i don't i never got the sense that there was any vision in him of a need to curb democratic processes so one of the last time we spoke we were talking about james wilson in and and the founding and one of the things that's very very clear if you go back and read the original constitutional convention in the what records we have is that the virginia nhs particularly madison in that context headed extreme distrust of democracy and that he was really worried about mob rule and faction and was trying to structure a constitution with senate at the center and a senate that was not democratically elected but rather the control the states as an attempt to put decision what he called successive filtration that we have to go through a number of steps of places constituted in ways other than direct elections and when i hear you talk about distrust the democratic process i think of that you know someone who didn't believe that that would lead to the inherent political process would lead to good things i don't have that feeling about justice kennedy and i can think it's possible to believe in values of liberty so just free speech without necessarily having very very negative view of the process is just understand that political exigencies race questions and they lead to certain enactments and the and the court has to act but i do think that he also did see as john is put out structural government as an important bulwark against a protecting liberty and again that's not really thinking of the process lee as being factored or somehow bad going it's just you know the classic statement is you know power tends to corrupt absolute power tentacle up absolutely and the madison solution in our constitutions divide power against itself and police it in certain ways it's possible to do that without and we also the system of federal ism divide power from the federal government the states to believe in.
