Her primary concern was directed towards Serena's future Cleopatra. My Love I received word but was locked in ceaseless debate with tiresome CICERO. Kato's demise has only urged these fools onward in their campaign against me. I received word of my own regarding your nephew Octavian. Do you choose to oppose my decision. Making I come from a land where blood flows from the gods to the rulers. I only assumed the same would be true under the leadership of a man. Such as yourself Octavian.

My job is to lead is not our purpose or if you lost that too in the fog of your own power woman woman. Do not leave me here. That's why I'm leaving this empire.

And the I was siding with this. Assyrian side in the renewed Roman civil war while brutus and Cassius raged against the status quo the new Roman triumvirate controlled mainly by Caesar's best friend General Mark Antony and his heir apparent octavian fought to hold onto the old Rome and forty one BC.

After everything. I am always prepared to be disliked triumph please. Julius was friend to us both let us dismiss the formality. Hyacinths the invitation was more of an order than anything else excuse. Any formal preparation may have taken in the public eye. I wanted this to be recorded as an accusation. But there's is little doubt in my mind that you're on the side of the Syrians. You need not look further than the name of my only son Lovely Cleopatra. My true purpose and asking here is to request your help. I intend to make war against pathogens. I must display skill above the sorts of my fellow travelers. I fear it would be the only way to hold Rome together. I am and always have been a woman of Unification. Power must be held by the most responsible among us yet. There are rumors that you do not well with others. You're dead brethren husbands. Speak to this. I did say I believe. Only the most responsible should hold power by any means. Forgive this digression. Julius always spoke of your beauty but I saw you at his villa. I thought perhaps it was saturation on his part but yet say I already know what myself. You are radiance incarnate. Nothing so complex Mark Antony. I am a goddess and Queen. I simply know it to be true and so it is so it is so began the partnership of Antony and Cleopatra Both in love and War we'll return to our story in just a moment and now let's continue the story.

Of course they do my beautiful Isis and you will have to sacrifice no more together. We've created the family of a new civilisation. Tell me these plans. Let me hear them from Your Lips for Alexander. The lands of Armenia Media and Parthenon for Selene Sirnak perhaps Libya for little Philadelphia's was Syria Phoenicia and silly of course all of these lands will be hours they already are but they have yet to realize if Caesar was our times Alexander you and I shall be taught me and what of Rome. What if that fall smelling place? You are a Roman man after all will you leave it to Octavian? We already have our disagreements. It's a matter of time until he turns on us.

Caesar this I will do for you in the Isis and you will be above all the Queen of Kings never met a man who could match my words before you're still believe have a few languages on me. Don't you good thing? We have all the time in the world legitimized in a way by Antony's presence Cleopatra and Cesario on rose to their highest level of recognition yet Cleopatra as Isis.

"Show classical Greeks by the rope the Greek and Latin spellers amongst us. What do they know here in the twenty first century that can help all of us we were deprived, or we skipped Latin and Greek in school, and those of us who took it may not have it published. However, there are three subjects that everyone can unite on fascinating to study twenty five hundred twenty three hundred two thousand years later Alexander Hannibal and Caesar each man. I hero conquer for his own time. A new book masters of command Alexander Hannibal Caesar and the genius of leadership coming from a classical scholar. In fact, a professor of history and classics at Cornell University, Barry, Strauss Barrick. Congratulations and good evening. And these three names we could actually make them into ice cream flavors. They're so popular in the twenty first century but in their own. Time. They were rising men not all young men. Alexander was young Hannibal was not young. But he was not old and Caesar was a mature man, I begin with Alexander because this is the oldest this is fourth century BC. His father Philip was conquer very successful. And he put Alexander toward sixteen as my memory. Alexander was successful at sixteen at eighteen again at twenty how was Alexander regarded in the court, and in Macedonia as Philip son was he seemed to be a rising star a chip off the old block or was he seen as a weak or deficient or vein in some fashion. Good evening, professor. Good evening. It's great to be here. John, thanks for having me. That's terrific question. I think that those renew L and best. Talented it. He was even the young man and just formidable if you didn't know him that well, it was easy to underestimate him. He was so young and relatively inexperienced. Father had cats giant shadow and really taken mass massive on from in the boonies to being the leading state in the Greek world revolution that Philip it undertaking creating events donating state least, the modern Macedonian state and creating the Macedonian armed forces. It was hard to believe Alexander at the age of twenty could step into his father's shoes. Let alone at do them. And yet he did. So he he was a great surprise to many people many of his subjects were bailed when he came on thrown in both the states to the north of mass and on what they dominated in those to the south. But most of many of the Greek city states, particularly an avenues. And they never thought it house vendor dominate them as you would was Alexander understood as a fighter. Ruler of kid would they have disregarded him because of his age. Absolutely. You know, the age would have been a complete turn off to the people at the time. They distrusted young men. I thought they were hunting bird and inexperienced and in table of the judgment and the skill was needed to succeed. And they really underestimated Alex Sander. He was supreme talented, and you know. Metaphor. He was the coach's son somebody who had been. Wound for success. In if he'll is entire life. But he also was smart enough to know what he didn't know. And he made sure that he had senior men around him who could fill in the blanks that he was capable of filling in and deferred to them when necessary into the early in his career. It's one of the secrets of six is success. Heels dairy is very intelligent, very good judgments. He knew when to say no to them. But he kept them around important. They were up to no end Hannibal. This is the next century the third century BC hannibal's born to forty-seven around his thirtieth birthday. He makes the big move to March on Rome. But he also is the son of a very successful military commander, hammock car, Barca, and Hamill car Barca made his sons reputation by introducing them to the army when they were in Spain. This was another chip. Off the block was he well, regarded thirty as old enough to take command into against Rome. He was very well regarded tickly army. I mean, his army cleaned power, and he had succeeded in fighting against the Spanish tribes. Getting to make his name like that. Of course, the fact that there was so famous and that he seemed to be looked like father he acted like his father. I mean that inspired confidence among demented. Army one of the great questions about Hannibal as what people thought of him on the home front. We know that the that his family had a reputation for being champions of the common man, having support of ordinary people in cartage the garbage is dominated by an oligarchy by the car Jinyan Senate. And although our sources are highly imperfectly, it seems as the Senate was two minds about Hannibal on the one hand they they respected him and what his family had achieved on the other hand, they distrusted him and his family. They practically ran an independent in thing. And he was young. So they supported him. They desperately wanted a war revenge against well there. Like, Germany after the first World War that wants to find a war of revenge against the stakes defeated. So I had a good for doing. So, but they were not willing to write him a blank check as it turns out. The Senate played Hannibal like a tool as opposed to obeying him in Hannibal never made a move the way we'll see with Caesar to take over the Senate in Carthage didn't come to that now. But we must mention Caesar Caesar is a mature person. I think he's around fifty when he crosses the Rubicon. He has become one of the senior. And most successful commanders enrollment history by conquering Gaul, bloodily and brutally over many decades. He has a very loyal the the legions of very loyal to him, but his rival Pompey at this time outshines him does that mean that Caesar is seen as an upstart as an outsider when he makes the move on Rome. Outsider. But he is seeing his enemies of always thought of him quite correctly as somebody who's unscrupulous, and who would stop it. Nothing to succeed. And they worried about him. Somebody will overturn the Roman constitution for his own and they didn't much like Pompey either the men of the Senate, and they recognize the pump EMC's similar in many ways. But they rightly recognize limits. Papi was not a puppy was not willing to do anything to get ahead. Pompey wanted in the end to be admired by the system. Here's an establishment figure. He wanted to huge power Senate recognized this number one. That to engaged in methods, the Senate considered just unacceptable. He was much more of a demagogue. And then Pompey he was much more of a populace than Pompey which made the Senate nervous. And I think the Senate rightly felt that Caesar. Just was much more than a long-term than Pompey. Whatever be awful lack the killer instinct that Caesar had in spades. So yes, he was seen as a very dangerous figure not living outside because he was a member of the Roman aristocracy navy and away seen as a traitor to his class. I've often wondered professor Crassus Crassus is killed in the east and a battle. But Crassus was the third part of the triumph a triangle of Pompey Caesar and Crassus, and I've often puzzled whether Crassus his death. This is a man who played most famously by Laurence Olivier in Spartacus movie crosses his the one who finally conquers Spartacus any celebrated because he c- he he put down the slave revolt. Does Crassus his death triggered this dispute between Caesar and Pompey the absence of a third part? I mean, that's an excellent question. If Crassus had lived, it would have made it more difficult. You might have. He might very well played a meeting will between Caesar impossibly. And I mean by no means was it impossible to have a compromise. Then Caesar crossed the Rubicon and started to civil war. I think part of a problem with the Senate chef didn't trust Caesar. What's your wanted was not that extreme? But the Senate thought where is this going to lead Pompey Crassus had been around? He might have been the guy to step in and come up with a compromise. I could easily imagine it happening in in forty nine. So you're right crisis is debt did make the stakes higher. Did raise the stakes and it didn't make more difficult for Pompey and Caesar tickets to agreement. Let's cross the line.

"John. This is the John Batchelor show classical Greek classical rogue, the Greek and Latin scholars amongst us. What do they know here in the twenty first century that can help all of us we were deprived, or we skipped Latin and Greek in school, and those of us who took it may not have it published. However, there are three subjects that everyone can unite on fascinating to study twenty five hundred twenty three hundred two thousand years later Alexander Hannibal and Caesar each man, I hero at a conquer for his own time. A new book masters of command Alexander Hannibal Caesar and the genius of leadership coming from a classical scholar. In fact, a professor of history and classics at Cornell University, Barry Strauss, Barry. Congratulations and good evening. And these three names we could. Actually, make them into ice cream flavors. They're so popular in the twenty first century, but in their own time, they were rising men not all young men. Alexander was young Hannibal was not young. But he was not old in Caesar was a mature man, I begin with Alexander because this is the oldest this is fourth century BC. His father Philip was conquer very successful. And he put Alexander toward sixteen is my memory. Alexander was successful at sixteen at eighteen again at twenty how was Alexander regarded in the court, and in Macedonia out as Philip's, son. Was he seemed to be a rising star a chip off the old block or was he seen as a weak or deficient or vein in some fashion? Good eating professor. Good evening. It's great to be here. John thanks for having. That's terrific question. I think that those are new L vendor. Fast had offensive just talented that he was. Even the young man and just how formidable he didn't even that. Will it was easy to underestimate him? He was so young and relatively inexperienced. His father had cats such a giant shadow and really had taken NASA on from from the boonies to being the leading date in the Greek world revolution that Philip undertake in creating mass donating state the modern Macedonian state in creating the Macedonian armed forces. It was hard to believe at Alexander at the age of twenty could step into his father's shoes. Let alone at do them. And yet he did. So he was he was a great surprise to many people many of his subjects were bailed when he came on with Ronin both states to the north of mass and on the dominated in boosted the south, but most many degrees city states revoked particularly in Athens, and they never thought. Alexsandr dominated as he would was Alexander. Understood as a fighter a ruler of kid would they have disregarded him because of his age. Absolutely. You know, the age would have been a complete Colonel to the people at the time. They distrusted young men. I thought they were hunting bird and experienced in incapable of the judgment and skill that was needed to succeed. But they they really underestimated Alexander. He he was supremely talented, and, you know, take home bowl metaphor. He was the coach's son somebody who had been wound for success in field is entire life. But he also was smart enough to know what he didn't know. And he made sure that he had senior men around him. Who could fill in the blanks that he was incapable of filling and he'd deferred to that. When. Sorry. Particularly early in his career. It's one of the secrets of six success. Heels. Dairy is very intelligent, very good judgments. He knew when to say, no. But he kept them around important. They were it helped to no end Hannibal. This is the next century the third century BC hannibal's born to forty-seven around his thirtieth birthday. He makes the big move to March on Rome. But he also is the son of a very successful. Military commander hammock are Barca and Hamill car Barca made his sons reputation by introducing them to the army when they were in Spain. This was another chip off the block was he well, regarded thirty as old enough to take command into against Rome. He was very well regarded particularly in his army. I mean army had cleaned him is issue of power, and he had succeeded in fighting against the Spanish tribes began to make his name like that. Of course, the fact that while there was so famous and that he seemed to be looked father. He acted like his father that inspired confidence among amenities. Army one of the great questions about Hannibal what can before him on the home fund? We know that the family had a reputation for. Being champions of the common man, having the support of ordinary people in Carthage the carnage was dominated by an oligarchy by the Carthaginians Senate. And although our sources are highly imperfectly, it seems as if the Senate was two minds about Hannibal on the one hand they respected him, and what his family had achieved on the other hand be distrusted him and his family. They practically ran an independent team in Spain. And he was young. So they supported him. They desperately wanted a war of revenge against Rome. They're a bit like Germany after the first World War wants to fight a war of revenge against the stakes of defeated. Good for doing. So, but they were not willing to write him a blank check. As it turns out. Yesterday. The Senate played Hannibal like a tool as opposed to obeying him in Hannibal never made a move the way we'll see with Caesar to take over the Senate in Carthage. It didn't come to that now. But we must mention Caesar Caesar is a mature person. I think he's around fifty when he crosses the Rubicon. He has become one of the senior. And most successful commanders enrollment history by conquering Gaul, bloodily and brutally over many decades. He has a very loyal the the legions of very loyal to him, but his rival Pompey at this time outshines him does that mean that Caesar is seen as an upstart as an outsider when he makes the move on Rome. Outsider. But he is seeing he's his enemies always thought of him quite correctly as somebody who was on scrupulous, and who would stop it at nothing to succeed. And they worried about him if somebody would overturn the Roman constitution for his own, and they didn't much like Pompey either the men of the Senate and they recognize the palm team Caesar similar in many ways, but they rightly saw Pompey recognized limits. Poppy was not Pompey was not willing to do anything to get ahead. Pompey wanted in the end to be admired by the system. Here's an establishment figure. He wanted to have huge power. And to have the Senate recognize him as number one would've liked that to be engaged in methods. The Senate consider just unacceptable. He was much more of a dog. And then Pompey was much more of a populace than Pompey which made the Senate nervous. And I think the Senate rightly felt that Caesar just was much more than one term than Pompey. Whatever be awful lack the killer instant that Caesar had in spades. So yes, he was seen as a very dangerous figure not really not fighter because he was a member of the Roman aristocracy, maybe in a way seen as a traitor to his class.

You might he might very well have played immediately role between Caesar and Pompey. And I mean by no means was it impossible to have a compromise. When Caesar cost through the story of the civil war. I think part of the problem with that the Senate chef didn't trust Caesar. What Caesar wanted was not that extreme but the Senate, but where is this going to lead or puppy? If Crassus had been around he might have been the guy to step in and come up with a compromise. I could easily imagine it happening in forty nine. So you're right crisis. Did make the stakes higher. Did raise the stakes and it did make it more difficult for pumping to reading.

Join us every Wednesday and subscribe on apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to the stay in history class from how stuff works dot com. And from the desk of stuff you missed in history class. It's the show where we explore the past one day at a time with a quick look at what happened today in history. Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm Tracy b Wilson in it's January tenth Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon on this day in the year. Forty nine BC today crossing the Rubicon has become an idiom in the English language used to describe making a really difficult decision or taking a really important step something that you just can't turn back from. And so this might conjure up images that the Rubicon was a really dangerous mountain range or some kind of treacherous chasm. But really it was a river and not even a particularly large river. Sometimes it's described as not much more than a stream. It was the context that made it such a critical point of no return, the Rubicon marked the border between Italy and Gaul gall included a lot of what is France and northern Italy today. And after a long and complicated political history. Julius Caesar had been given a thority over part of Gaul, and then he had conquered the rest of it and through this expanding military conquest he had started amassing enough power to turn back home toward Rome. He had an eye toward remaking the Roman government to suit his own purposes was because of both his activities in Gaul in the way, he hit handled his affairs back in Rome. He basically earned enough money. All this conquest a higher agents to see his interest there. Of course, this growing power of Julius Caesar was a threat to other powerful. People back in Rome back in the year. Sixty BC Caesar Pompey and Crassus had all formed an alliance together known as the first triumvirate and as Caesar had become more and more powerful. That alliance had really started to crumble, see. Caesar had really been the negotiator between Pompey and Crassus, but as puppy became more distrustful of Caesar he can really fill that role anymore. And then Crassus was killed in battle in the year. Fifty three leaving just Pompey and Caesar and various factions within the Senate all trying to amass the most power all with their different goals and different ideas about how Rome should be run. This led to a series of very complicated negotiations and tensions until the Senate resolves that both Pompey and Caesar needed to lay down their military command simultaneously. They voted on this matter and December. I the fifty BC but the next day Roman consul guys Claudius Marcellus defied the Senate offered Pompey command of all of Italy's. Armies was basically him taking sides between Caesar and Pompey. Caesar once again said that he and Pompey should give up their commands at the same time simultaneously, get both of them on the equal footing disarmed together. But the Senate had changed their perspective. They had basically taken Pompey side and resolved that if Caesar did not disarm himself. He would be an enemy of the state. A new governor had been elected for Gaul Caesar was under direct orders to lay down his arms, and that brings us to the Rubicon. If Caesar crossed the Rubicon with the thirteenth legion crossing from Gaul into Italy at this point, this would be considered an act of war. It was an irreversible decision in a point of no return in the account of Suetonius quote. He snatched trumpet from one of them and ran to the river with it, then sounding the advance with a piercing blast. He crossed the other side at this Caesar cried out let us go where the. Of the gods and the crimes of our enemies sumus. The die is now cast this action on Caesar's part led to a civil war which Caesar one at the end of it all declaring I came. I saw I conquered quite famously Pompey was killed during this process in the year. Forty eight BC Caesar returned to Rome as a dictator, although that conquest had not ended until the year forty five BC and on the odds of March forty four BC less than a year later Caesar was assassinated, thanks to Casey Perriman Chandler maze.

"Wingo. Thursday, six eastern on ESPN radio and ESPN two. Under the hood with Jonathan. One tops and the ESPN app. He's got the night off. He actually worked earlier today filled in for carbon Yuriko comedy Narco. We'll be back together tomorrow and again, just a reminder common. Yuriko Waddell, Sylvie they will be out at the twin peaks in Warrenville on a Friday for a football Friday preview the bears and eagles and also go on out you get a chance to win tickets to the game. Just make sure you're going up. See the guys the twin peaks in Warrenville and make sure you stop on over and see the people with the ESPN shirt side. And they'll have you sign up and get a chance to win some tickets stats from Mark potash. Fred Hubner, Jeff Meller at here till ten we've got shaped prep coming up from FOX thirty two a little after nine o'clock. We'll get to the the Mark potash stats. Some very cool stats that. I thought were interesting. They're interesting to me. So hopefully, the we interesting to you, and and new to Jeff world include you to let's go to new lenox and GM. Jim on ESPN without and thanks for hanging in there. What's up? He has done doing. Well, what's going on? So for the bears to win the NFC who do you think needs to step up the most on that team? Mr bit. So you're saying the NFC not just this week. You mean this week, and then the Rams and then the saints or something like that? Right. Yeah. All all three again. Okay. Taking out Mitch Trubisky of the equation. Yeah. Look if if if Mitch operates at the high level that we've seen from him. I don't think they'll have a problem. I think the really the only thing that would short circuit them in that outside of that would be Cody parkey, and that's been talked about as ad nauseam as well. Yeah. I I'm still baffled. That you give Cody parkey like it's one thing to give a kicker big money. But again, I'll say this. I'm surprised you. Give a kicker whose range is essentially fifty fifty one yards big money that kind kind of guys you can find. Yeah. You mean, you may not get them right away. But those guys the hard guys defined are the guys who are accurate and have big legs. Tucker user Harrison butters. But the truth is like I cannot believe they gave Cody parkey as much money as they did. And not only can you not kick a fifty yard with consistency. But now he's an accurate as well. Yeah, it that's what's maddening to me. And Jim the only other guys I can come up with is. Your quarterbacks need to play as well as they've played all year and the quarterbacks that played well because they've had pressure from the guys up front. You're akiem Hicks Khalil Mack. And even getting some pressure from a Leonard Floyd and your linebackers are played. Well, that's why you're Cornerbacks play. Even better. Every once in a while, you can see of the of the secondary prince amukamara might get caught here at a pass interference call or something like that. You haven't seen any the one thing the bears. Don't do is guys don't beat them deep. Now. Now, you said something when the hell was it two weeks ago when they played let's see what they played San Francisco. They played the Niners. He talked about how important it was for them going into that game. They knew that they might allow a few passes to be caught. But they said he made a concerted effort on the defense to make sure that they got guys and tackle them. Well, that would have been nice at the beginning of the year because they wouldn't the lost to Miami or the Packers. Because you think about those two games why they lose those games. They did not tackle the ball carrier. You had Cobb going for a long gain. And it touchdown at the end. And you also had Burleson multiple. Yeah. Going going for so against the Niners. They did not want. Travis Kelsey who. Led the NFL. Yeah. George kill. They did not want George kiddle who led the NFL in yards after the catch to go anywhere after he caught the ball. And they did a really good job. Why didn't they held him seventy four yards or something like that or eighty four yards? And you saw this past week. He had a nice week against the Rams. And actually, you know, he set the record for the most yards for tight end. Yeah. So I mean, it was pretty amazing. But I think it's the is the only other thing that I'm concerned about going forward because in might to near brought up a great point when he joined us from Bleacher report you look at the saints. They've got a couple of running backs and they have one wide receiver. But really there. They don't have a lot of other. I mean, they have guys you don't know. Yeah. Austin Carr writing is on the injured list the kid out of note, north west. Yes. And then Ted Ginn came back, but they don't have a lot of options. Not a lot of weapons there. One receiver, though, catches everything. Michael thomas? Yes. Every single ball thrown on weekends. I don't really think to to Jim's question do the who needs to step up. I don't think anybody on the bears necessarily needs to quote unquote, step up because they just need to do what they believe I'm confident like the talent level on the defense is amongst the best in football. Yeah. And as long as they do their jobs, which I trust they've been doing it all year, the some of the stats, you just laid out courtesy of Marc part. Mark potash article in the times today. Just go ahead and highlight how good they've been. They are amongst those elites defenses that we talk about with nostalgia the twenty thirteen Seattle Seahawks. Yup. That went on to win the Super Bowl, you know, like like those that were there in rarified air, and there's you know, I don't want to get into it. But they're they're in that that caliber now they just need to go ahead and finish the job. And they will like I mean if like if they can finish the job and win the Super Bowl. All I know I'm getting ahead of myself here. But if they can do that they'll be talking about just like the eighty five bears because they're at that level because of that defense and people have already asked will Vic Fangio also be carried off the log with Mandingue after the game. Maybe so we'll see I'd love to see what happens the bears at the beginning of the game. The other day they held and I was writing always chart in the game. The bears the Vikings to four straight three and outs to start the game forty nine yards. Twenty five carries in the first half. The last five Super Bowl champions defensively they've ranked fourth. I fourth eighth first in total defense fares. Come in ranked first okay and the stat throughout with the Seattle the last NFL defense that was ranked in the top ten in every major category was the twenty thirteen Seahawks won the Super Bowl that season. Let's see what else the bears led the NFL in first-half defense and one hundred point three yards per game. Three point six yards per play six first downs per game. That includes one hundred sixty six yards allowed after taking big leads against the box bills and the lions in fact, the bears three point six yards allowed per play. In the first half is the lowest in at least the last twenty years every other team in the NFL that's ever played. The game has allowed the teams more than three point six yards in the first half. They're the lowest in twenty years are Cording to pro football reference bears went not only one twelve and four this season. But they were also one play away from winning every game. We talked about this there. The first bears team to not lose a game by more than seven points since nineteen sixty three I think what one of the things that might sneer talk with us about early in the hour was the difference between Nick foles and Carson. In that Nick foles. I think, you know, maybe if you're like a lot of us when you're consuming football. Sure, you're watching the eagles on occasion. But you're probably not watching them as closely as you're watching a team like the bears because you're watching every game you're living dying with every snap of the bears. The eagles you check in periodically. And you see the highlights on the red zone. But you don't get a whole over what Mike Mike who is a big time. Philadelphia. Eagles fan talked about was that Carson Wentz would hold onto the ball for a long long time which plays right into the bear strength. Their pass rush. Xactly what they want to do the one thing that Nick foles does is he gets rid of the ball quickly. He's familiar with Doug Peterson offense. He's been for years. Now, the RPO's ones exceptionally well, and he gets rid of the ball and allows the receivers to make plays. And so it's going to be incumbent upon the bear secondary to as you make tackles as you were just talking about and limit those pass plays too short yardage. So that they can get him off the field. Yeah. That'd be a hat off the tax pro tackle sproles and angular and Al Shahed, Jeffrey and and go. Golden tate. Those guys that catch the ball Zakar. It's decker versus big is. I mean, he's over one hundred catches clearly one of the best tight ends in the NFL and a key cog in their offense. So he he a hundred sixteen receptions for Zach ertz, I believe that probably set a record for tight ends for a single season. Sixteen catches so hee beginning his head. James thornton. The bare strength of schedule and this comes up every once in a while usually at the start of the season the bear strength of schedule ended up being last in the NFL, they're sixteen opponents had a combined record of one eight one forty four and four for four thirty percentage last season. Those same sixteen teams had a combined record of one thirty three in one twenty three of five twenty you have no idea when the season starts, and that's why you look at the schedule in the schedules out for next year. I mean, at least who everybody's gonna play. And you look at it. And you go that looks really tough. But this year's look tough to and you're able to you know, will you did play the patriots. You did play. Some really good teams. You played the Rams you beat them. You played some other good teams. And you want them eleven of the bears sixteen games against teams that had worse records this year than they did last year six of them. This was even more interesting six were against teams whose coaches were fired now tour against the Packers right away. You got the Packers. And then you've got the other teams you've got Arizona. You have all all the ones that they. Tampa Bay Arizona. The jets. Probably it. Right. Great while Green Bay twice. Yeah. Yeah. So you never know going into it. And the reason we mentioned earlier we talked about Dontrelle Inman five catches seventy seven yards including an eleven yard touchdown with for Andrew lucked the other day. He was the one guy that I actually liked leisure. I thought KENDALL Wright going into the season was going to be okay. And then they just didn't throw the ball. And I wasn't sure if he didn't get opener. What the problem was? Yeah. The thing about it too. Though, one of the reasons going into last year they thought Cam Meredith they thought they had cameras and Kevin white. They were giving Kevin wanted another chance and one week after another. They both got hurt. True. So that was difficult to pick up competent receivers at no doubt. And that's why they made the deal for nine. The truth is though like, I think you always have to try and add some depth, especially when you let's be honest. I liked Cam camera. This you did multiple shows the camera. He's a good guy. But the truth is when you're a receiver who has one good season right to his career. And you know, it was coming off of a knee injury. You better try and add a little bit of depth. And and that's also goes to again Ryan pace counting on Kevin white yet again year. But again, that's in the past they fixed those now they drafted Yvonne Williams in the seventh round. I think we saw the we all with a four catches the other day. Dzhavadav webs is definitely a guy you're going to keep around. And you're happy to have for another, no doubt. Giovane whims will be active for more than ten games. As long as he's healthy. Giovane wins will be an active player on the roster next season more times than that we used to recall and to hear from and also we have Trey Burton. But right now, we're going to Racine Wisconsin, we're going to hear from George. Hey, George you on ESPN with thousand what's up. Thank you very much for having me on. This game. Newly stay something about to Rome had civil war. Julius Caesar against Pompey. Caesar is Mike Reid. I'm very concerned about. Peterson who was ten years. Older veterans bend every four against me. I know the bears have a better defense better team. I really my biggest concern is the head coach Philadelphia Peterson and George appreciate the call history lesson from cars there. I'd be a little more concerned if they ran different styles, but because they both run pretty much the same style offense. I'm not that concerned. They may not be able to get the pressure and that's not the Vic Fangio now. Trying to find a way to get pressure on the quarterback gets rid of the ball quickly. Yes. Okay. And the linebackers are going to be big for the bears, not only, you know, Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd, but your two guys that have stepped up, and you think about it..

"In his book Cleopatra's kidnappers author, Stephen Dando Collins paints a vivid picture of what was happening in Cleopatra's world around eleven a. m. on the morning of March fifteenth. Forty, four BC the day. Julius Caesar would be assassinated. Now, this is largely a fictional account as it's impossible to know what Cleopatra was doing on that morning unless some new sources found that captured it. But nevertheless, it's interesting to explore the scene as it's always a possibility. And remember this is just three days before Cesar was set to leave for his invasion of Partha and Cleopatra was to set sail back to Egypt. Colin states quote up on a balcony that morning, Cleopatra may well have been looking out over the sprawling gardens of Caesar's villa beyond the dirty Brown Tiber and across the red tiled rooftops of the city toward the theater of Pompey. Caesar would have told her that he planned to attend a meeting of the Senate at the fifth hour. The last such meeting before he began his journey to the east. Collins continues quote there on the balcony. She may have been holding her son and Caesar's son Syrian pointing to the buildings on the field of Mars and telling the child that daddy was down there. Little Syrian would have also been looking forward to going home almost three years old. Now he would have been talking in halting Greek about the crocodiles and palm trees and pyramids that his mother and servants would have told him about too young. To remember the place of his birth. He could only have known home from their stories there in exotic Egypt, Syrians mother would have promised him that he would one day reign as king of Egypt and quote. But then Collins goes on to describe that from Cleopatra's vantage point that morning high on the Jerusalem hill. She would have been able to see the rooftop of the portico of Pompey the place where the Senate meeting was being held that day. And although Collins says that was highly unlikely given the distance, maybe just maybe if it was clear enough, Cleopatra would have been able to see Caesar's litter being carried up the street toward the Senate meeting and stop in front of the building. And then for a brief instant, she might have caught a quick glimpse of Caesar as he stepped out of the litter and walked in. In this story, if this was the case that split second fleeting glimpse of Caesar, walking into the Senate meeting would have been the last time that Cleopatra would have seen him alive if she would have repeated the scene just a few hours later and looked out over her balcony and down toward the theater of Pompey. She would have watched as Caesar's lifeless body covered in a blood-soaked. Toga was carried out of the building and placed back into the litter that brought him there..

"From a to z John John baffler show classical Greece classical road the Greek and Latin scholars among what do they know here in the twenty first, century they can help all we were deprived or we skip Latin and Greek in, school and those of us who took it may not have it. Polished, however there are three subjects that everyone can unite on fascinating to study twenty five hundred twenty three hundred two thousand years, later, Alexander, Hannibal and, Caesar each, man a hero and conquer for his own. Time a new book masters of, command, Alexander Hannibal, Caesar and the genius of leadership coming from a classical. Scholar in, fact a professor of history and classics at Cornell, University Barry, Strauss, Barry congratulations and good evening and these three, names we could actually make them into ice cream. Flavors they're so popular in the twenty first, century but in their own, time Time they, were rising men not all young men Alexander was young Hannibal was. Not young but he was not old in Caesar was a mature man I begin with Alexander because this is the oldest this, is, fourth, century BC, his father, Philip was a conquer a very successful and. He put Alexander, to war sixteen, is, my memory, Alexander was successful at sixteen at eighteen again at twenty. How was, Alexander regarded in the court and in Macedonia as, Philip's son, was, he seemed to be a rising star a, chip off the old block or was he seen. As a weak or deficient or vein in, some fashion good evening professor Good evening it's great to be here John thanks for, having me that's terrific question I think that those who knew l. past had, expensive just talent He was. Even. The young man and. Just how formidable. He didn't know him that will it was easy to, underestimate him Sure young and relatively inexperienced fatherhood cats. Such a. Giant shadow I'm really taken from The Buni after being the leading, date in the Greek world revolution that's still up at. Undertaken creating going state The modern Macedonian state creating Macedonian, armed forces it was, hard to believe if. Alexander at the age of twenty could step into. This father's shoes let alone do them and yet he did so he was a great surprise to many people many of these subjects were old when he came palm Ronin both the math on, that dominated and most, of the south but. Most of many of the Greek city states Roosevelt. Particularly feed an Athens and they never thought that Alexander Dominate the busy would was Alexander understood as a fighter a ruler. A kid would they have disregarded him because of his age absolutely you know the age would have. Been a complete, turn off to the people of it'd be distrusted young men they thought they were hot. Bird and inexperienced and incapable of the judgment and skill needed to succeed and, but they they really underestimated Alexander He, was supreme Lee, talented and you know Metaphor he was the coach's son somebody who had been, wound for success in job isn't tire life but he also was. Smart enough to know what he didn't know and he made. Sure that he had senior, men around him Who could go in that he was, incapable of filling in and he deferred to them when necessary early. In his career it's one of the secrets of six success He also had a dairy very very intelligent very good judgments and he knew when to say no to them. But he kept them around important they were And No end, Hannibal this is the next. Century the third century BC hannibal's born to forty-seven around his thirtieth. Birthday he makes the big move to March on. Rome but he also is the son of a very successful military commander, Hamill car, Barca and Hamill car Barca made his sons reputation by introducing them to the army when they were in. Spain this was another chip off the block was he well regarded at thirty as old enough to take command into against Rome He was very well regarded particularly in the army I mean his army had cleaned him Power and he had. Succeeded in, fighting against the Spanish tribes To make his name like that of course the fact that Father was famous And that he seemed to be, looked like father he acted. Like his father I mean that inspired confidence. Among amenities army one of the great questions about Hannibal what people thought of him on. The home front we know that the family had a reputation for Being champions with the common. Man having the support, of ordinary people, in, cartridge, the cartridges dominated by an oligarchy Janine Senate, and although our sources are highly imperfect it seems, as if the Senate two. Minds about Hannibal on the one hand they. Respected him and what his family had achieved on the other hand they distrusted images family. They they practically ran an independent kingdom in Spain And he was young so they supported him they desperately, wanted a war against well they're a bit like. Germany after the first, World War that, wants, to, fight a war against the stakes event defeated Ticket for doing so but they were not willing to write him a blank check as it turns out The Senate played Hannibal like a tool as opposed to obeying him. And Hannibal never made a move, the way we'll see with, Caesar to take over the. Senate in Carthage it didn't come to that now but. We must mention Caesar Caesar is a mature person I think he's around fifty when he crosses the Rubicon he has become. One of the senior and most successful commanders enrollment history by conquering, Gaul bloodily and brutally over many decades he has, a very loyal the legions have very loyal to him but his rival Pompey at this time outshines him does that mean that Caesar, is seen as an upstart as an outsider when he makes the move on Rome To an outsider but he. Is seen his enemies that always thought of him quite correctly as, somebody who's unscrupulous and who would stop it at nothing to succeed and they worried about him somebody who. Would overturn the Roman constitution for, his own and they didn't, much like Pompey either the. Men of the Senate and they recognize it Pompey Caesar. Similar in many ways but they widely saw copy recognized limits copy was not Pompey was not willing to do anything to. Get ahead Pompey wanted in the end to be admired by the, system here's an establishment figure he wanted to have, huge power and to have the Senate recognize in December one Caesar would have liked that to engaged in methods The Senate consider just. Unacceptable he was much more of a demagogue and then Pompey was much more. Of a populous than Pompey which made the Senate nervous And. I think, the Senate rightly felt that Caesar was much more threats than long-term than Pompey whatever be awful lack the killer instinct that Caesar had in spades so yes he was seen. As a very dangerous figure, not really an outsider because he was a. Member of the Roman aristocracy in a way seen, as a traitor to his class I've. Often wondered professor Crassus Crassus is killed in. The eastern a battle but Crassus was the third part of the triumph a triangle. Of Pompey Caesar and Crassus and I've often puzzled whether Crassus his death this, is a man who played most. Famously by Laurence Olivier in the Spartacus movie crisis is the one who finally conquers Spartacus any? Celebrated. Because he, c- he he put. Down the slave revolt, does Crassus his death triggered this dispute. Between Caesar and Pompey the. Absence of the third part yeah I mean that's an excellent question if Crassus had lived it would, have made it more difficult You, might have he might. Very well have played, immediately eating will between Caesar and Pompey And I mean by no means was. It impossible to have a compromise then Caesar crossed the Rubicon and started the civil War I think. Part of the problem was that, the Senate chef didn't trust. Caesar what your wanted with. Not that extreme but the Senate but where it's gonna lead Pompey Crassus had been. Around he might. Have been the guy to step in and come up with a compromise Easily imagine it. Happening in forty nine so you're right crashes his death did make mistakes. Higher did raise the stakes and it did make it. More difficult for Pompey to agree let's cross the line with the three Alexandra Hannibal and Caesar masters. Of command is the book very, Strauss professor Barry Strauss the. Author when we come back. The three heroes go to war I'm John Batchelor this is the John Batchelor show This, is the John. Batchelor show k. j. o. h.
