We will never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues, erase our history, indoctrinate our Children or trample. When our freedoms Well, I'm glad he's making the speech and I'm glad he stands for this, But it doesn't seem to be what's going on around our country. Joining us now to talk a bit more about this. Paul de Marco, who was a former state representative, obviously and also the chairman of the Republican Party here in Jefferson County. Paul, Welcome in help You have a good Fourth of July weekend. Yeah. Hey, hey, hey. Good morning. Hope you had a great force with you and your family as well. It was a great weekend. I did. I did. I saw some of the clips from the Mount Rushmore visit and I thought I thought it was pretty awesome. I thought it was a very solid with America. And yet here here we go again. More protests about the president and people calling Mount Rushmore basically a sign of white supremacy and racism. You know, Colin Kaepernick came out over the weekend, saying that you know, Independence Day. The celebration is A sign of white supremacy. I mean, is everything in our history now going to be lumped into the same bucket here that it's white supremacy and you know, just a remembrance of slavery. I mean, It's just outrageous to me. Right on target. When President Trump announced he was going about Russian war that the Democrats attack, not just president Trump But Mount Rushmore, they attacked one of the most iconic monuments in this country to our founding fathers. And then right on right on cue. After that, both the New York Times and CNN start attacking Mount Rushmore and so you can see how out of touch the Democratic Party is in this country. When they start attacking George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt. So folks need to think about that when they're going to the ballot box. How extreme how to the left. The Democratic Party is in this country when they're attacking monuments like like Mount Rushmore and wanting to some of these clothes Mount Rushmore. Think about that. This is the Democratic Party in the year 2020 And also saw over the weekend There was a statue of a black man that was torn down where this black man's, You know his legacy was in fact fighting to free slavery and fighting against it. And yet that statue was torn down to, apparently, If it's a statue, it's got to come down. I mean, what is this going to mean? As far as you know where they're going to change the name of Washington, D. C. Or Jefferson County, Alabama. Absolutely look, and they tore down the statue of Columbus in Baltimore in Little Italy, which is important for Italians in the Little Italy section of Baltimore. They took down the statue of Columbus in the city of Columbus. Again Monuments of Abraham Lincoln, with the Emancipation Proclamation taken down in Boston. This is where Ah, these folks are headed this mob rule to take down anything. It's it's the American version of the Taliban. And folks need to stand up and I know we're not gonna let you to destroy the founding in an attack the founding of this country. We know what Colin Kaepernick what would I joke? For him to attack the Independence Day and the fourth of July and what our founding fathers did with my form this country and how our country has grown through the constitution through the Declaration of Independence. Folks need to remember this is where the Democratic Party is in the year 2020 And did you see what's happening as well with Washington Redskins? Here we go again and the Cleveland Indians. Now finally, I guess the Redskins have been pressured by the all powerful dollar last Thursday. Was it FedEx that I want the team to change their name. They pay the skin $7.6 million a year for the right to call that stadium FedEx Field. Well, they want a name change. Now. Nike took all the teams gear off their website and Pepsi jumped on the pile. So you anticipate the Washington Redskins gonna be changing their name? Look not Nike doesn't have a foot to stand on. You know they they ignore human rights violations in China that are going on right now. So for Nike to stand up like there is just the hypocrisy that the king of hypocrisy when it comes to dollars, they don't care about that, Um and so for them to attack And stand up when they ignore what's going on in China. So we need to put all this in context about what's going on. Which is these attacks only where the founding of this country attacks on patriotism attacks on those of us who love this country. And now we live in the greatest country in the world. I am and where what we have done. When it came to a World War two and we will want to fight for liberties and freedom and religious liberty around the country. And that's what Donald Trump what the president was saying when he spoken Mount Rushmore. Don't let these Love this mob rule beside the future of this country, and that's what this election is so important Come November. With these big You're absolutely right Palm with these big corporations, it comes down to the dollar. They feel that they've got a jump on the social band wagon right now or else they're numbers. They're going to fall. People boycott them and protest them so You know, they're caving somewhat. So again. Where And when Have you ever heard Nike criticized China? In the human rights violations in what they're doing in Hong Kong right now. You know, hypocrisy, Publican. How dare you call them hypocrites like that? Well, let somebody appreciates being with me. We gotta run. We're up against a clock. Here It is. 8 49 Alabama's Morning News. Good to have you on Paul.

How did America get to its current state?
"The scenes across the US in the past week or so, they have been profoundly disturbing heavenly. The protests are in response to the horrifying image of George. Floyd an African American man and Minneapolis. Police officer who killed him by kneeling on his nick for close to nine minutes to spot. He's pleased that he could not brave. Those demonstrations as we all know turned into, want him violence and destruction, not only in the twin cities, but all across American CDs. Today's are quiet and peaceful, but it's really the evenings in the night, so usually bring that fury. Those frustrations attend to boil over in the results or these fiery clashes that we've seen across the country, and of course here in New York. We've already seen dozens of people injured. Hundreds of people arrested in tonight. The expectation is that we could see more of these demonstrations. How did America get to this point? And who precisely are Antioch, the militant left wing political protest movement that part of these rights. Face because Nazis, thank. and. That is a very bad thing because harass people Lemay Organiz they kill. People hurt people. They fight people. And we're the ones who fighting back there. The second coming of Hitler for several decades America has I deeply divided nation. Just go back to the mid to late nineteen sixties when America experienced those long hot summers, protests and riots, Vietnam Rice and Martin. Luther King's assassination. The American people are deeply disturbed. They're baffled and dismayed by the wholesale looting and violence. That has occurred both in small towns and then great metropolitan centres. No society can tolerate massive violence. Anymore than a body can tolerate massive disease to me that black people are in the streets. Has Do the lives air force lead in this country? And unfortunately lead these lives by the indifference and the apathy. And a certain kind of ignorance, willful ignorance on the part of their citizens. According to British historian Max Hastings Pass guest on this show in those days quote. It seemed that rice the election and the Vietnam. War would tearing asunder the greatest country on earth. And to think is deep divisions in America have clearly grown since the sixties especially in the trump era, just think of that toxic polarization, hyper partisanship in Washington and elsewhere not to mention the crisis engulfing American cities. So. How did America get to this point? Robert DALIC is arguably America's most distinguished living presidential historian. He's author of fourteen books including on Presidents FDR JFK, LBJ, Richard, Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. The latest book is called. How did we get? He from Theodore Roosevelt? To Donald Trump it's published by harpercollins. Robert Delic joins me from Washington DC hi Bob. Hi Tom Lovely to hear from you. Great to have you on the show now they adopt is in Washington and across other use CDs, but America as I mentioned, before has experienced similar protests in violence. What do you think distinguishes this crosses? The widespread unrest in nineteen sixty I'd. Well, Tom. One of the things that distinguish did was the fact that Lyndon Johnson of course was. President then, and was presiding over the Vietnam War, which was at the center of what? Disturbed so many people in the United States and triggered so many of these. Demonstrations but Johnson had the good sense. To? Give up running for president. He was very skillful politician. Now we have a president who will not give up who would not resign and the only way we're going to get him out of office is by feeding him in the election. Night comes up and five months from now it's very disquieting situation and the demonstrations across this country. I believe on not. Simply a response to the tragic killing of that black man in Minneapolis, but it's also a protest against Donald Trump's presidency. You Know Tom. He's never reached fifty percent approval. And the going on for years he's been office. And this is unprecedented. No President in terms since we've had polling in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Has Gone through a whole first term without ever reaching fifty percent approval.

"During and after the siege of Santiago one of the last major operations of the Spanish American war. Us troops stationed in Santiago. Cuba were beset by malaria and yellow fever. Thousands of men were sick and dying but the McKinley administration planned to keep the troops in Cuba until peace talks were over and until they were healthy. According to some sources there was a real fear that six soldiers would come back to the states and start a yellow fever epidemic. But the situation was growing untenable and near the end of July General William shafter commander of the Fifth Corps gathered all of his commanders to discuss it. Roosevelt later recalled in his autobiography that. Although I had command of a brigade I was only a colonel and so I did not intend to attend. But General informed me that I was particularly wanted and accordingly. I went as Edmund Morris wrote in the rise of Theodore Roosevelt's all agreed that it was critical and that the war department's apparent unwillingness to evacuate. The army was inexcusable. Somebody must write a formal letter stating that. In the unanimous opinion of the Fifth Corps staff further stay in Cuba would be to the absolute object. Lewis ruin of the fighting forces. None of the regular officers wanted to risk his career by writing such a letter and suddenly the reason. Roosevelt's presence had been requested became clear. He was a volunteer. Who had quit his post as assistant secretary of the navy in order to fight and he intended to go right back to being a civilian. After the war he had much less to lose by offending his former boss. President William McKinley McKinley Secretary of war Russell Alger to incur. The hostility of the war department would not make any difference me whereas it would be destructive to the men in the regular Army Roosevelt later wrote. I thought this true and said I would write a letter or make a statement which could then be published Theodore. Roosevelt obviously wasn't afraid to speak up. Theodore. Roosevelt wasn't afraid of anything except inaction as Alfred. Henry Lewis would write a Roosevelt in nineteen ten. Mr Roosevelt has often shown that it is better to do the wrong thing than do nothing at all. The best thing is to do the right thing. The next best is to do the wrong thing. And the worst of all things is to stand perfectly still. We'll be right back in an effort to spur the McKinley administration to Action and bring American troops back to the states before they were decimated by yellow. Fever plan was hatched. Roosevelt would write an initial letter addressed general. Which would then be followed by a round robin letter? A method typically used to conceal the identity of the ringleaders of a movement which would be signed by Roosevelt and the other commanders. Then they would leak those letters to the press in his letter. Roosevelt wrote that to keep us here. In the opinion of every officer commanding a division or brigade will simply involve the destruction of thousands. There is no possible reason for not shipping practically the entire command north at once. All of us are certain that as soon the authorities of Washington fully appreciate the condition of the army. We shall be sent home. Roosevelt noted that in the Cavalry Division. At least there were no true cases of yellow fever but there were fifteen hundred cases of malarial fever. Hardly man has yet died from it he wrote but the whole command is so weakened and shattered as to be ripe for dying like rotten sheep when a real yellow fever epidemic instead of a fake epidemic. Like the present one strikes us as it is bound to do if we stay here at the height of sickness season. August and the beginning of September corentin against the malarial. Fever is much like quarantining against the toothache. If we are kept here it will in all human possibility mean and appalling. Disaster for the surgeons here estimate that over. Half the army of Kerr during the sickly season will die. The men were unable to penetrate into the interior and moving them around the island. Roosevelt said only sick in them. Further to delay sending the men home was not only terrible from the standpoint of the individual lives lost Roosevelt wrote but it means ruined from the standpoint of military efficiency of the flower of the American army for the great bulk of the regulars are here with you. He closed by saying that. I write only because I cannot see our men who have fought so bravely who have endured extreme hardship and danger so uncomplaining Louis Goto destruction without striving so far as lies in me to avert a doom is fearful as it is unnecessary undeserved Roosevelt's fellow commanders. Then signed their letter which noted that they were all in agreement that the army must be moved at once or Perish. Adding as the army can be safely moved to now. The persons responsible for preventing such a move will be responsible for the unnecessary loss of many thousands of lives are. Opinions are the result of careful personal observation and there are also based on the unanimous opinion of our medical officers with the army who understand the situation absolutely. There are different accounts of what happened next. But according to Roosevelt he wrote his letter and an Associated Press reporter tagged along when he went to give it to general shafter who promptly push it into the hands of the reporter. As Roosevelt later recalled. I presented the letter to General shafter. Who waited away and said I don't want to take it. Do whatever you wish with it. I however insisted on handing it to him whereupon he shoved it toward the correspondent of the Associated. Press who took hold of it and I released my hold. Something similar happened with a round robin and when the letters the press they caused a sensation the McKinley administration was incensed by the letters. According history and Louis L Gould. The day after the letters were published. Mckinley wrote a letter to shafter. Denounced th round robin as most unfortunate from every point of view adding the publication of the letter makes the situation one of great difficulty. No soldier reading that report ordered to go to San Diego but will feel that. He is marching to certain death. According to Morris some within the administration even suggested court-martialing Roosevelt for his letter the administration had reason to be rotated on August. Third the day before the round robin hit the press. Algebra Haddish in order for the army to be moved back to the United States which meant that many newspapers printed Roosevelt's letter right next to an announcement that the troops were being brought back to the public. It looked the Roosevelt's letter and the Round Robin had forced the McKinley administration to act which wasn't the case by August seventh. The first troops were heading back to the states to quarantine in Montauk on Long Island New York. Nothing ever came of the suggestion to Court Martial Roosevelt. Instead Secretary Algebra published a private letter in which tier bragged about the rough riders performance. Saying they were as good as any regulars and three times as good as any state troops while Algebra might have hoped that the letter would threaten tears. Chances of getting the governorship of New York. His tactic failed. Roosevelt returned to war hero. He became governor and then vice president and then president. He didn't however get the one thing he desperately wanted the medal of honor. Those simple leave. He was denied the honor because of the publicity stunt he had pulled as Mitchell Yochelson writes for the National Archives pro magazine. There's no evidence for that exactly. Why the BREXIT Board Denied Roosevelt? The award is not officially documented. Yochelson rights certainly. No evidence exists to support the contention. That Algeria held a grudge over the round. Robin Affair or Roosevelt's testimony to the Congressional Committee on the contrary letters from the Word Department to Roosevelt indicate that they were more than willing to assist him in getting the Medal of honor. One can only assume that the BREXIT board came to the conclusion that the Roosevelt contact in Cuba was quite admirable. He was not worthy of a medal of honor later. Roosevelt would write that. I was recommended for it by my superior officers in the campaign but I was not awarded it and frankly looking back at it now. I feel that the board which declined to a word. It took exactly the right position around a century after his experiences in Cuba tier would finally be awarded the Medal of Honor. Back to the present day. We've talked before on this podcast about how it's impossible to know how tr would have reacted to situations today in this case however one of Roosevelt's descendants has a different opinion in a piece for the New York Times to Roosevelt tr. Grandson and chairman of the Theodore Roosevelt Institute at Long Island University wrote about Captain Crozier and the situation on the USS Theodore Roosevelt as a descendant of the namesake of Captain Crozier's former command. I often wonder in situations like this. What Theodore Roosevelt would have done tweet? Roosevelt wrote in this case. Though I know exactly what he would have done in eighteen ninety eight. He found himself in almost the exact same position. In this era when so many seem to place expediency over honor it is heartening that so many others are showing great courage some even risking their lives. Theodore Roosevelt in his time chose the honorable course. Hampton crozier has done the same before we go.

"Save lives and overcrowded hospitals and as delivery people in Grocery store employees had to work every day to make sure we have the supplies we need many non essential workers have stopped going into their offices and are instead working from home to try to slow the spread of the virus. I'm recording this episode of the podcast in my closet because close muffled echo so if things sound a little weird or different that's why even navy ships have felt the effects of the virus. Perhaps none more so than the USS Theodore Roosevelt a Nimitz class nuclear powered aircraft carrier that was launched in Nineteen eighty-four. The ship was at sea in the Pacific Ocean with more than four thousand crew members on board when cove in nineteen began to appear among the sailors. After the outbreak started the ship was docked in Guam but the disease continued spread alarmed by the situation. The ship's commander Captain Brett Crozier wrote a letter to senior military officials. He pointed out that in the cramped conditions of a navy ship social distancing and fourteen day quarantines. We're not possible which meant crozier wrote that. The spread of the disease is ongoing and accelerating he asked that the USS Theodore Roosevelt's crew members be allowed to disembark in Guam to the rapidly deteriorating situation writing removing the majority of personnel from deployed US nuclear aircraft carrier and isolating them for two weeks may seem like an extraordinary measure. This is unnecessary. Risk keeping over four thousand young men and women on board the TR is an unnecessary risk and breaks faith with those sailors entrusted to our care he ended by writing. We are not at war sailors. Do not need to die if we do not act now. We are failing to properly take care of most trusted asset our sailors the letter which crozier email to senior military officials was leaked to the San Francisco Chronicle and published on March thirty first then acting secretary of the navy. Thomas Bee model removed cruiser from command April second as crozier disembarked. The aircraft carrier sailors cheered him from the deck Captain Crozier who has reportedly tested positive for cove in nineteen was forced out because according to the New York Times Molly had lost confidence in Crozier's ability to command the ship effectively as it dealt with the evolving crisis after crozier sent a letter on an unclassified e mail system to twenty to thirty people which mildly said caused unnecessary alarm about the operational readiness of the ship and undermined the chain of command after cruisers removal. Molly went to the US as Theodore Roosevelt to assess the situation where he made disparaging remarks crozier which were leaked to the public under pressure. Molly resigned on April seventh. The actions of Crozier mildly and the Navy are obviously being hotly debated and there will probably be more developments between when I record this episode and when it goes out. I'm not an expert in the navy or in the military chain of command so it doesn't feel appropriate for me to dig into any of that here but the current news does give me the opportunity to discuss an interesting historical precedent for this situation. One that involved Theodore Roosevelt himself. I'm your host Aaron McCarthy and in this bonus episode of history versus. We're going to look at the round robin letter incident of the Spanish American.

"Wear that a lot but that was his vision of what a cowboy looked like and so he wanted that and He got a photo of himself taken of it in the photo. It looks like he's in the in the forest but he's actually a photo studio in New York City. He sent it to people so he is. You know these days we say people do it for the Graham like. He's he was doing it for the Graham before Israel was never thing he had a concept about. Pr AND BRANDING BEFORE PR. Branding were thing and how that could aid you in presidency in Asia and policy and how important that was fascinating. Yeah I mean for all his positive attributes he also had some some not so great ones you know. He had a fair a fair bit of Righteousness. Unfortunately he held some white. Supremacist viewpoints Which is a bummer. Just been grappling with that and making it making the podcast. It's been fascinating to learn about those sides of him as well in a way surprising and tragic because he was this moral righteous person and he was able to foresee things that culturally of the time. Were a step away from others. You know in terms of monopolies and trusts and corruption and so on that he he saw morally what was right so somewhat surprising and sad that he couldn't take his intelligence and moral stance as it were do the right thing in his presidency. There was a huge uptick in violence against African Americans. And you know he was against segregation. He did not believe. In limiting voting rights he spoke out against lynching but politically. He did very little to help anyone. He did forge a relationship with booker. T. Washington actually invited him to have dinner at the White House which caused huge controversy and they had a working relationship but in terms of policy. He didn't do very much to help. That's a sad. That's a bummer. Now he did a lot of good things but not everything but on that side note. I think we'll say goodbye to tr. Well that wraps things up for this episode as huge.

"Get to Kettle Hill. And he's waiting for orders waiting for orders just like chomping at the bit and then when the orders finally come he like throws himself on horseback which is so reckless and just charges up the hill Firing and he actually Kills a man and it's you know it's just like a wild wildly reckless thing that he does in the things that motivated him he. He definitely did acted many risky things. The first of many many whiskey things where you would say. Wow I you know. When he was in the Dakota territory's he was like of a deputy sheriff or something and and he came home from hunting one day to discover that these bandits had stolen his boat And it was the only boat on the little Missouri River. You know he was like I'm going after these dangerous bandits like he said to his ranch hands. Build me another boat which you know if if someone build you another bone. He's got the boat. Why do you need to go out your boat but it was? It was like a moral thing for him so they go in. They capture these guys who are very dangerous guys. And then he walks them overland like many many miles to justice. Which is it was I mean. And it's the badlands like and they are bad they're tough and he just was like nope morally. I'm doing this thing but it's such a silly risk. Being moral is really was the beginning of his career right and he really made it essentially politically by going after the police and mob boss guys and trying to remove people who are accepting graft and and doing things that were you know the way things worked a lot of the way things work but underground criminality and Which made him Not Well liked amongst a lot of people. Reform is the thing. It's the through line through his whole political career. Everything else he did and he did a ton of other things but like reform was was the biggest thing that he championed and so from his early early days in assemblyman like the first forty eight hours. He introduced four reform bills or something like that. You know through his time as police commissioner when he was following the letter of the law. And you know firing police chiefs who were enabling prostitution and You know Enforcing The Sunday excise law which made him very unpopular with many immigrants. You know and then he achieves a like a national political standing after the charge up Kettle Hill. You know he becomes this national figure and so the Republican Party says let's make him governor of New York and why they ever thought that he would be more controllable as governor of New York than he had been previously. I have no idea why but so he was in there for a little bit and then they were like we need to get this guy out of here. So let's kick him upstairs make vice president. He won't his political career will die there because you know the vice president of your head was just a figurehead position at that time And then McKinley is assassinated. He becomes president. And what's he do? He takes on reform. Let's pause for a break here when we get back. We'll see how teddy bears as the president of the states.

"Roosevelt was the twenty six president of the United States. He was also a Republican leader was progressive era policies and original conservationists and naturalists yet a warrant easiest often ranked as amongst the top five presidents of all time and also admired for his larger than life personality. Tr was a noted colorful figure who truly advanced progressive policy in this country. Welcome to personality. I'm Dr Gail Saltz and joining me. Today is Aaron McCarthy Editor in Chief of mental floss and host of the podcast history versus which just finished its first season all about the Roosevelt. So he thought who better to bring on to discuss tr. It's hard to come up with a a leader President who had a bigger personality historically speaking than Teddy Roosevelt. Very true born in Eighteen fifty-eight a hometown boy. Yes New Yorker we do and we do know. New Yorkers do tend to have big personalities but even amongst New Yorkers Teddy was big so let's talk about his early life. He had a southern Belle. Mom Yes he did and his Father was a republican so that led to some interesting times during the civil war a nation divided and a house divided. He was very into the war playing battling war with his siblings all the time he was the second child with the first son and so as soon as he was born he kind of became the center of the family's world and he was a sick kid. This turns out to be a very important point in terms of his character formation. Which and we know. Today that early chronic illness for child really is very formative particularly in terms of how they deal with it how they develop coping skills and manage to manage it versus how traumatic an impact. It has on their childhood. He had childhood asthma and hadn't pretty severe asthma. E couldn't even like blow out a candle like he was really compromise and that compromise is ability be physically active in the way the boys usually would. Let's talk about Theodore's parents reaction essentially to his asthma. Yeah so I mean they were obviously an affluent family they had means and so he had his first asthma attack at age. Three and it was really bad. I mean asthma can still be fatal today but it was even more so he would sleep sitting up. There are these stories of his father kind of carrying him up and down the hallway trying to get him to breathe they would put him in the carriage and ride him at top speed up and down Broadway trying to force air into his lungs and then they did other things which you know. We look on horror with today. They made him smoke cigars. They made him drink black coffee. You know and never smoked so we for good reason. Yeah Yeah we'll introduce the scars. Childhood would be a good deterrent. I would assume but it must have been even scarier to be doing things that were supposedly supposed to help. They were supposedly the medical treatment of the time and to actually not have them help at all because of course we understand today. They nothing useful any of these things but his father said to him. You have to make yourself. You have to become strong in order to come out this so even as a child that is essentially what Theodore did. It's really funny. His father took him to the Doctor. And the doctor said he's got a week heart and not enough space in his ribcage or something so he really needs to open that up and so his father says to him. You know you have the mind but not the body and without the body of the mind can't go as far as it should so you have to build your body according to career into your sister. Tr said through gritted teeth. I will build my body and then they build this gym for him on the Piazza and he's just out there like lifting weights. The neighborhood looked a lot different back then than it than it does today. But there's a beautiful garden out in the back so he would have been working out and listening to like mooing cows and and peacocks screaming. They make terrible noises and so yeah he worked OUT SOLIDLY FOR TWO YEARS. And then there's another kind of a formative experience for him. He has an asthma attack in his father. Sends him up to Moosehead Lake. Which is I think in Maine and in the coach on the way there he runs into these two boys who are about his age and instead of becoming friends with him. They bully him. They beat him up. He feels so ashamed by that. You know he's like I'm building my body you know. He was writing down his his measurements. All the Reps. He was doing stuff in his diary. Early evidence of some obsessive nece. Let's say For sure yeah that often when someone is fairly obsessional you do see it in childhood. How does he when that incident he was in his early teens? Okay so a very identity forming time and fourteen also a big bullying. I'm yeah as we continue to see today and we know the negative impacts of bullying really sure emotionally driving low self esteem for for the for the target. But that's not what happened to him. No he actually said I made up my mind that I must tried to learn so that I would not again be put in such a helpless position. So then he took up boxing. His coach was a prizefighter. And what they discovered is that he could really take a hit and he would just keep popping backup. Hit him again and he just pop back up so he had a sturdiness. Starting Yeah that he demonstrated about him and even as a boy. Tr shows that you know he has to struggle with this asthma but he's going to build himself and then he gets knocked down but he gets back up interesting that he already at this young age. He's playing war games. And he is overcoming. Actually his asthma. And certain kind of way you could certainly posit the desire to have war or to have fighting as the constructed obstacle which you show your victory in essentially would be very compelling For someone who is already started doing that with his traumas as a young person Yeah and I mean. He actually thought that war was a good thing. You know just a little bit of war kept you in touch with your manliness. And and what? He called these barbarian virtues and he sort of felt like you had to keep fighting to stay on top and so he was really really into war. How do aggressive fighters? Do with those impulses and urges when they also want to be morally right or morally good if they're shaped in a way that maybe their moral compass and you know they might become criminals actually really do do fighting in a way that you know. Obviously we don't approve of society but in his case he's a Roosevelt and raised by a family. That maybe might makes right by. Right is important exactly. I mean his father. They have this glass importing business and his father was very wealthy and was a big believer in philanthropy. So the American Museum of Natural History. His father was a part of founding the Metropolitan Museum of art. His father was a part of founding and then he also supported many many charities including the News Boys Lodging House and he actually take his kids with him to these houses so they could see there was a bit of. I can never pronounce it. Noblesse Obe leauge at work there and so he really believed that it was part of his role as a privileged person to help people who are less privileged than him and his father was a proponent of muscular Christianity which is basically like strong body strong morals and so you know he was constantly sort of drilling right and wrong Into his son I think mostly for better but also tr comes out of that with sort of a very black and white view of what's right and what's wrong and not a lot of gray area. His father took him hunting. Hunting was a big part of his upbringing. It was part of being a sportsman but it was more than that and this goes on to be a very formative time for him. I mean it actually even goes back further than that because he was so sickly as a kid that he didn't spend a ton of time outside what he did was he sat in his house and he read and he read a lot of books about natural history even before he could read he would drag the books alongside him and beg anybody who could read to read them to him. There are these stories of him dragging along David Livingstone's book which was like apparently than he was just dragging it along and begging people to read the book to him which is really cute. But you know so. He had this obsession with nature.

"The winter than in the summer. So for instance. Flu has very strong seasonal forcing go much more likely that flu transmission occurring in the winter than you are in the summer months so this study has been interpreted as suggesting that that could be seasonals. Covet however I think that we still need to get more days today. Hot and humid countries seem to have and I should say seem to have had fewer cases of covered nineteen Would you agree with that? And if you do wise at the situation I think we have to consider a number of other factors. That could explain that. For instance one of the introductions sample sample is not only a Hong Eun country place which has excellent public health excellent content tracing and some very will class at Zang's true of Hong Kong. If you look to other places around that region like Indonesia Indonesia was famously darned starting testing and so they may have been a lot of community spread that we just haven't detected but we are seeing with. Kobe is when it enters the community in some places cakes off the jump breaks quite quickly wake in Iran in others. It doesn't that doesn't mean that it's going to happen right now. For instance we can see that. That's probably very good evidence so coded transmission taking place in Florida. So where do you find the strong evidence that Corona virus does behave like the flu virus in that it is seasonal and could lead up over summer months in North America and Europe? So the study talking about it in the moment is probably the strongest evidence that is. I say has another confounding issues to deal with the Isis. Saying transmission is not happening. It could be. The transmission was just not observed. My colleague mercy. Santana has done a study which was looking at the initial epidemic in different parts of China because China's quite China has a number of different climactic conditions different positive so up north. It's kind of coal and Norgren Humid where South Walnut Creek Humid. So if you were able to see seasonable for senior expect to be more transmission happening unless happening down south but when he looked at the early stages of the epidemic he found such a fact have any previous viruses like SARS or merged shown a seasonal pattern or behaved any differently and warm and humid climates. The issue was saws off. That is often misunderstood. Is that people say that way because of the wall and human violence and the change in seasons but actually what happened results was the majority of transmission happened. Africa symptoms so social distancing. People who you know have called for Just staying home had an outsize effect on transmission that does not get a case with code coded increasing evidence. Kobe transmits a full symptoms become apparent and has resulted. That is much much control now when the flu goes away in the summer. It's not just as a seasonal fall saying it's not just because it finds it. Harder to transmit seasonal flu has been done around will with a building community in the community which means tries to transplant. It's more likely to find that resonates transmitting to is immune. So the downtown scene. Flu is due to seasonal plus immunity is. Kobe is a new virus. There is no immunity. I'm wondering professor manage if you feel a little bit uncomfortable. Even drawing the comparison to the flu given that this parallels have largely been dismissed at this point I actually rocker. We've lost people saying this is flew flew. Snood not new. It's it's wrong rolling comparison. It's wrong to say Ho flu. Kills only so many people year and this is killed. Fuelling acts the same key missing. Is that whenever you say that? Have not being not many deaths. It's the so far at the end of that. Have Not Lodge outbreaks with these places yet? This is still very early stages and we're GONNA learn a lot more than a lot of it is gonNA learn considerable costs. What evidence would you need to conclude that the corona virus is affected by temperature and does follow that seasonal forcing dynamic? You were talking about. We would need evidence that would show that the rate of transmission uninterrupted by other things was slower in the summer. And it wasn't a windsor now. Of course it's going to be together because we are going to be seeing a whole lot of Alba countermeasures which can be put in place and rightly so in spreading now. I hope that that is going to drive three number down. But it's going to be very difficult to know whether or not asked countermeasures. Physical Distance Enroll doing the reason. I'm talking to you on skype or if it's use something like seasonable folsom karenna viruses. Don't see as much seasonal focusing flu and that's bad news bill Hanna. Jr is an epidemiologist at the Harvard. T H Chan School of Public Health. Thank you very much for speaking with us and for speaking with us over skype. Don't have a choice. Do We know Ellen? Johnson Sirleaf knows what it's like to face a deadly virus outbreak. She was president of Liberia during her nations battle with the Ebola virus. Nearly five thousand people died there between two thousand fourteen and twenty sixteen and infectious disease. Respect snowboarder in discriminates against no one. I argued that an uncontrolled containment will matter where in the world and no matter. How localize is a threat to all humanity as a Bolo was spreading across Liberia? And it's west. African neighbours Sirleaf made pleas for global unity to avert a pandemic. She wrote what she called a letter to the world and the world responded and they did so boldly we defeated together. Liberia was declared Ebola. Free in June of two thousand sixteen with the Corona virus spreading across the globe. Sirleaf is now making a similar play. We must act to slow down. Break the chain of transmission. It is clear that mistakes have been made in the initial response to the virus from Asia to Europe to the Americas. We made the same mistakes in twenty fourteen but we self correct and we did it all together. We are all in this together advice that helped Liberia during Bola and applicable to the whole world. Now that was former Liberian President Ellen. Johnson Sirleaf speaking with my colleagues at the BBC. You're listening to the world. I'm Marco Werman. You're with the world ninety three years. That's how long the man dubbed the Godfather of natural history has been on this earth. I'm talking about broadcaster. Sir David Attenborough. What I WANNA do is going to look at Odds Fox and pangolins and sloths and humming birds. What an assignment. What if I'm tastic through an didn't matter how badly you did it and we we but but people who said ooh Look Hummingbird ooh look? That's Bangla. That's attenborough on the podcast. The Economist asks a podcast in Partnership With Economist magazine and MC L. Voice a host for this week's episode. She sat down with Sir David Attenborough. So attenborough's ninety three. He's still going strong. Even has a new film coming out a life on our planet that thirst for curiosity and for nature's wonder It seems is not waning. In his ninety s not at all he seems is keen as ever to get out into the world. He said if if I'm asked I go he's head as if he might just put his backpack on and leave the room at any minute and looking for pangolins. I think you get that sense. That hearing from him of wonder of the world he now combines that much more with warning about threat to the natural world and one thing. I've wondered was when he had changed from being someone Houston wandered the globe. Ren- back pictures and stories the extraordinary places and wonderful animals to someone who wanted to send a strong message and this is what he said back in the sixties when the first time I saw a bleach car reef and I realized that the richest environments richest ecosystem the world has ever seen somebody being wiped out and we were doing it. So in the podcast. You Press Sir David Attenborough. Some hard hitting issues specifically his own carbon footprint. I mean he's a man who has traveled all over the globe. What did he have to say about that? And whether he's changed any zone habits to lessen that footprint I often find it. It's a question that makes interviewees regal and I think it makes David attenborough a bit uncomfortable. He takes the view that he travels on long voyages. They are actually pretty efficient in terms of the number of people that he takes with him. He says he doesn't travel unnecessarily but he did say he still sees it as part of the job that he does. It's integral to it. Orders to sitting here are breathing carbon dioxide. We're all contributing to in some way or another to the problem and it is impossible other line down and dying for us to cease doing so what we have to think about is the common dogs that I am producing simply talking to you and sitting here is not being misspent and I hope it. Isn't you fly. Let's yes I suppose I do but I don't fly anyway for fun. I fly as part of my job. Okay that's an interesting distinction. That's a good one As so an David attenborough ninety-three seen a lot and is now in the twilight of his life. How optimistic izzy. About the current environmental movement. He really came to life. I thought on this issue. He sometimes gets bored. Benching an elderly poster child for the Environmental Movement. He said it was visited him. But when we came to talking about Gratitude Burke. I thought he really had an interesting take on her and particularly why he thought that she'd made an impact. But I think it's absolutely astonishing what she's done and she's caused the most mighty potentates in the world to take breath and suddenly think about things. How is the attenborough family appreciated in the UK and have some of David attenborough zone kind of attitude. Shifts got paralleled The the the country's shifts he's a national treasure. It's it's a phrase itself news debate in. Which he he says he doesn't like but I imagine most people would rather be a national treasure national treasure. He's he's not really politically as active as much as someone who really wants to bring you the way that he sees the world into your living room and he believes that wonder is the first step of a broader awakening. He thinks that comes before the activism. Some people see it the other way round would be critical of him from that corner. But that's absolutely what he stands for why he continues to do what he does. Nine decades on and Macelroy podcasts. The economists asks thank you very much. Thank you very much okay. Bringing wonder into your living room. I like that especially right now. Turns out a lot of people do citizen. Science projects have gotten a boost in interest during the corona virus. Pandemic people logging onto their computers from their couches and helping out scientists. Remotely everything from digitizing data to hand counting animals in a photo. We have people counting penguins transcribing old documents. Look at weather records investigating sales and pretty much. Everything in between Chris. Lintott is a professor of astrophysics at the University of Oxford. He runs the website. Zun Averse Dot. Org the site lists dozens of online citizen. Science projects that people can sign up for. The website has blown up since lockdowns around the world have forced people to find things to do at home. We've been incredibly busy. We've had moulded a two hundred thousand people take in the last week which is about six or seven times what we expect. Lintott its own. Science project has also seen an uptick in participation it asks citizen scientists to look at graphs of light emitted from distant galaxies to try to find the shadows of passing planets by the people I tried to escape a little dreaming of new world's one. New Project has launched because of the uptick in volunteers. It's called rainfall rescue. Citizen Scientists transcribe old rainfall records handwritten over centuries by backyard gardeners in the UK utterly overwhelmed with response. We've had seven thousand volunteers get involved already. we've had half a million classifications numbers entered in the first twenty four hours climate scientists. Ed Hawkins at the University of Reading runs that project. I think people just want to distraction. At the moment fill up they can help out in some way and there were the situation that the world is currently in and this is a great way of doing it getting that historic rainfall data off of scanned. Handwritten notes will allow research the plug them into climate change models. Hawkins says climate issues have taken a back seat to the corona virus crisis but he hopes participating in projects like his can help people who are locked down to their sofas feel connected to the things they care about and each other. It is the first of April. No fooling we've been warned. It's going to be a difficult month. How about a song though? Nineteen sixty five in London.

"Doing it in a very methodical way. Because it's not the same as a cruise ship that ship has Armaments on an aircraft on it we have to be with fires at their fires on on more the ship. We have to run a nuclear power plants or there are a lot of things that we have to do on that ship and make it a little bit different and unique but we're managing it and we're working through and we're taking all the input and we appreciate all the Info from the CEO the chef medical command on that ship. And we're going to work on those those issues immediately. For residents of the island of Guam Population. About one hundred. Seventy thousand allowing sales to disembark is a big concern in the headlines. The Pacific News Center a major developing situation this morning after the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt pled with Navy leaders to radio station K. G. UM in Guam's capital had gotten Guam's governor. Liu Leon Guerrero announced today that she is working on a plan to quarantine sailors in local hotels. Lola Leon Guerrero is on Guam. She's an activist with the group Independent. Guan which is concerned about the governor's decision Guam is already trying to contain the rapid spread of covert. That's happening on a very tiny island with just a little over one hundred sixty thousand people we already have seventy seven cases on Guam and so bringing in a carrier with five thousand people who have been in such close quarters with each other And Cova rapidly spreading there that the Annan needs to be able to focus on the community here to the governor of Guam. Promise the navy anything. Well the governor of Guam. After the captain of the carrier wrote a letter about how serious the issue was The governor and the admiral started making decisions to house those who are testing negative in local hotels and they have said that they're going to ensure that a local hotel workers don't interact with the people coming off the carrier that they're working on How that's what that's GonNa look like. Do you know if any sailors have disembarked yet. No so the house of what this is GonNa look like a haven't really been made available to the community. A lot of the numbers have not been officially made available to the community in terms of how many people have already tested positive on the carrier. This information is vital. I believe to our community and it's a big difference from they will stay on the carrier or on peace to now we will be housing them in the hotels. How a dilemma is is for the residents of Guam because Captain Brett Crozier. The commander of the Roosevelt is pleading for help. I mean he's saying. Us troops are in a life and death situation. How are people talking about that? You know what the groups have been saying. Is that if we know. For a fact that it's spreading rapidly on the ship and then you remove them from the ship and you bring them into the local community even one new case in the local community because of how small and interconnected this community is could lead to many many more cases and that is problematic Nobody said that we want to turn away the sailors from from health. Care that they need you. Know there are People Guam. Who served in the navy and our on this carrier and we by no means want them to be mistreated or put their lives at risk. No what we're saying is the navy has the resources to handle this within their base. We should also point out that. Many residents of Guam our veterans or active duty Navy. Some are actually aboard the Roosevelt. Right now so how do those ties between Guam and the US military complicate the situation for people on the island we constantly because of you know our relationship with the United States and with the military particularly the people of Guam? Truly not being able to say you know what we need to focus on how we're going to handle the increasing number of cases that we have and there isn't enough information for us to really know what we're expecting here There hasn't been transparency. On behalf of the Military Victoria. Lola Leon. Guerrero is an activist with the group independent Kuun. She's been speaking with us from Guam Victoria. Thank you very much for your time in good health to you and your family remember the novel. Corona virus is just that novel. New Epidemiologists are learning about it.

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. It is may of eighteen seventy seven we are in Cambridge at Harvard college in the rooms for Theodore Roosevelt, eldest son of Theodore Roosevelt scene and visiting that day, the rooms are handsome there well arranged, but this is a man who studies a great deal at Harvard. Visiting that day is father Theodore senior, but his two sisters Bamiyan Coney his cousin Maude and a young woman. He describes as pretty Edith Edith Carrow, whom we know will become Theodore Roosevelt's, second wife after tragedy and reversal and discovery this detail is from a new book. These are the diaries of the young Theodore Roosevelt. A most glorious ride is the title. The is Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven. We begin the spring of eighteen seventy seven to eighteen eighty six when Theodore full blown coz on to a career in Washington. And then as we all know, his accidents the assassination of McKinley in one thousand nine hundred one and Theodore Roosevelt's ascendance to the presidency a presidency that dominated the beginning of the twentieth century and set the theme for America as an energetic. Manley extremely aggressive power. In the first part of the twentieth century. I welcome the editor of these diaries for the first time. I learned all together in one book Edward P, cone, Ted cone, Ted a very good evening to you. Thank you for this. Let's go into Theodore's room may ten Thursday at Harvard wise father visiting and who is pretty Edith to Theodore good evening. Good evening, John. Thanks for having me. Yes. Roosevelt. This is his freshman year, and he had a fairly solitary freshman year as a New Yorker, he didn't quite fit in with the son of the Boston Brahmin elite. And you know, that that first year a lot of his time is spent collecting specimens because he is this amateur natural scientists hoping to have a career and this, and this is, you know, near the end of the school year. This is a very important visit by a good chunk of his family, including his father, his brother has two sisters. And of course, of course, his childhood friend and eventually adolescent love interest Edith caro-. I mean it actually when he went off to Harvard. I think both families expected that pretty Edith Theodore would one day be married. This visit is the beginning of these diaries. Why do we not have seventy six seventy five seventy four when he was younger he traveled widely with his family. I think there were two grand European tours one that carried them all the way to Cairo was he keeping notes then in or did it not come to him. Now, there are the diaries of his childhood and youth those republish not long after his dad, and so those especially as you say chronicle, those tour ran tours of Europe that included the Middle East, included, Constantinople and included. A lengthy stay in Dresden where you learn to love all things German. And so on the one hand, you know, the Roosevelt papers are full of lots of different kinds of journals and diaries all the way up to win. He used a kernel of the rough riders in Cuba. But at the same time, he's also rather a sporadic diarist as well, even in this collection in this one volume collection of these diaries. There isn't a diary say for the year eighteen eighty five and then some of the years only how perhaps handful of entry. Trees as this is something that he kind of stop and start. And I think we're kind of lucky that we have almost as entire time at Harvard in the diaries. Yes. The summer of seventy eight hundred seventy seven this is a period where he is exploring the idea began naturalists, he's talked about it with his father is father is the critical figure Theodore Roosevelt, both young man and mature man, and the his seniority he thinks about his father a deal because of the tragedy that is imminent. However, the naturalism the pursuit of skinning every bird shooting birds and shooting animals, what does that mean to Theodore, and what is his father make of it? Roosevelt really wants to be a scientist. I don't pick necessarily motivated out of a real love of science. I think it's part of one. Is his entire life. Has this love of the outdoors. His father councils heaven says well less we are rich enough. You can do whatever you want. But you can't be a dilettante you have to pursue this as a serious study in a serious career. And by the way, you're not going to be able to enjoy the kind of luxuries that perhaps you enjoy now. So heroes about senior gives the go-ahead gives the green light. But with some fairly serious caveats, his father, still a young, man. He's forty five forty six years old. He's a banker, and I believe the Roosevelt's have been bankers for most of the eighteenth century from the most of the nineteenth century from the eighteenth century. Does the young Theodore value, the Bank, the bankers life, and he doesn't, and frankly, I don't even think Theodore Roosevelt senior really does. I mean. They they have their fingers in everything in New York in Manhattan real estate in imports in buying treasury bonds, really this comes from the grandfather. Cornelius van shock Roosevelt who funerals all senior is a partner in into the huge firm Roosevelt and son. The feeder Roosevelt senior we don't really remember him as a great pioneer of commerce in New York. We remember him for his philanthropy for being one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum of art. Or the Sounders of the American Museum of natural history of being the organizer of the news, boys lodging house of an orthopedic hospital. So I think this is something that Theodore Roosevelt junior directly inherits from his father, the sense of social responsibility and a sense of Noblesse. Oh believes that you know. Great power and wealth in your community means that you have much greater responsibility as well a detail here from before these diaries begin Theodore Roosevelt's senior the man whom Theodore Roosevelt adored warship, his father became caught up in the Republican politics in the middle of the eighteen seventies. This has to do with the civil war and the grant administration and corruption and the occupation of the army, the occupation of the south and the controversial election of the governor of Ohio Hayes in eighteen seventy six though, it looked like Sam Tilden at one what had had been victorious because the Republican party controlled the electoral college in several southern states that were really not organized to vote fairly a Hayes was put into office promising for one term. But at this point Theodore Roosevelt, senior had gotten caught up in the corruption of the collection of the collector of New York, Chester Arthur that. At did. That did see Roosevelt senior take that to the dinner table talk about the controversy and the upset of that period. I think this was a very formative experience for the son Theodore Roosevelt junior. Not only was this a subject of conversation. It grew in other close members of the Roosevelt family circle in New York City, and it was full in the newspapers, that's theater, New York. Newspapers of Theodore Roosevelt, made sure he has subscriptions to while at Harvard all is becoming a kind of an anti machine. Independent republican. This is a dominant and extremely aristocratic New York family. Everything is perfectly arranged. These are professionals thinking about civic affairs in the eighteen seventies. This is a critical period also for America because it's building what we now. Call the gilded age, but it was being put together piecemeal the powers, the authorities the great families that would be. Well, to do into the twentieth century was still organizing their combines the Rockefellers and the Westinghouse's, and of course, the Pullman and all of the railroads, but then darkness comes in to Theodore Roosevelt's live. We have this note. He's nineteen years old now he's at Harvard. He's at Cambridge and Friday, December twenty first suddenly, call to New York. Dear father, very sick. Do they have any warning about this Ted? I wasn't aware because he was away at harbor, but the family had known for a few weeks that heroes senior was in quite a bit of stomach pain. But it's only later when Roosevelt is called back to New York that he understands how sick his father has been. So this isn't December is right before Christmas and over Christmas over the Christmas holiday, and he's back home and away from Harvard. It seems like the father has revived. And so Theodore Roosevelt, junior happily goes back to Harvard. Eighteen seventy eight and those early eighteen seventy eight entries in January a very happy. You know, undergraduate Harvard very different from the year before much more social of women mentioned in his diaries, unknown to Theodore Roosevelt, his father is dying of a painful tumor of the stomach. The book is a most glorious ride. The diaries of Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven to eight hundred eighty six when we come back, his father dies and Theodore Roosevelt, must rearrange his thinking about the rest of his life. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Balance of nature.
