"Let's move to the two thousands now and the famous fat takes uproar and the repercussions of that. Did they kind of demonstrate the power. Pharma's ish but it also must trade issue. That new zealand has so while we compete ourselves with other wealthy developed nations. Our emissions profile is very different. Most of wealthy nations don't have primary industries as a backbone of the economy and for us it means that our emissions profile is half carbon dioxide and the other half roughly speaking agricultural emissions methane from cows and sheep and deer in nitrous oxide and boy not including agriculture in any of the pricing that seems to tax on emissions trading scheme use zones always only try to take a half of our missions and agriculture has remained out of the picture and in fact will remain out of the picture until at least twenty twenty four because of remains extend by begging back in two thousand and three. I think it was the in. We have a labor government and pete hotness the ministerial climate change. Who was trying to introduce another team to have a carbon tax but parallel to that called for mandatory labelling on agriculture leary. That would pay for her suj- to look at reducing methane emissions from livestock. But that caused the. You know the uproar that most people probably remember it became known as a fat techs and it's partially derailed or contributed to the effect that in the end. They're coming in here. Some members to introduce the techs on carbon dioxide either turks and during that time what we had was sort of voluntary negotiated agreements with individual companies. But nothing major in tim's off pricing carbon until two thousand eight. The government is said to introduce an emissions trading scheme after finally securing the numbers at needs to pass the legislation since its introduction. Two thousand eight a wing through a whole number of amendments changes tweaking here and the end during that time infected big at all for all sorts of reasons so in essence the ideas that you have a certain number of units or credits that account for the emissions that you allow yourself for that particular period and then in meters. Have to buy these serena these government and in the pay for the emissions but it's globally coincided with the time wean former soviet union collapsed and a lot of countries sent the economies collapsed and the emissions dropped and elites to your collapse of the price of those units below dollar so the became worthless essentially but fast forward to now. We now have an as remains on important tool that has this year began a series of walks him so there's quarterly auctions. The prices now at fifty dollars just about fifty dollars. It is starting to kick in as a price into new zealand. Emissions trading scheme is our primary toll for reducing climate pollution and outeiro will remain the main economic twelve main price tool into the future. But it's no longer the main tool. The big difference between nineteen ninety and now is public awareness and evine slight the student marches. Give veronica maduna some optimism on worth paul young. He was one of the people interviewed for the street. He was part of generation zero and then after the paris summit began a campaign to have a carbon zero egg that had clear it and clear goals in that space. And i was talking to him. He's now with. The commission is one of their models about exactly. How do you feel after having run this campaign having seems to finally some movement in that space but still rising emissions and i probably fool into his same sense of cautious optimism that while we looking.

"The sport on the scientific work the emissions stole continue to increase. They it's climate pioneered dave law and this quite a famous picture of him as a young scientist at a wind. Blown bearing head on wellington south coast. He started a co two measuring station. The back in the seventies and it still they're tracking continuously rising siato levels. This is to be the longest standing measurement we have also of rising co two emissions. Day flaw was in his twenty s at the time when he set this up and he was at that age sort of realizing not only seeing the rising missions here but it was a realizing the consequences. So he's gone through in. Frustration has probably understated description of it. He is now strongly involved worth school strikes for climate and a lot of youth groups that are now taking this really to the streets and he relates to their anger. That young people of looking back at you know the entire locks being spent discussing climate. Change that much action without much progress on policy he completely relates to that feeling now in his seventies there. I feel optimism because these young people and those highly innovative engineers scientists are out there. They really wanna do things in they have solutions before we move onto the two thousand key. Oto was that also a date. New zealand came back from the auto worth a negotiated deal that we would bring our missions back to nine hundred ninety labels and this was ninety ninety seven and we'll bring them back to ninety ninety levels but kyodo also under the rules. You could use offsets and you could trade with other nations. So that's where the idea of offsetting emissions rather than necessarily reducing them directly became important and forestry or sits in particular where a significant significant policy tool for new zealand. The thinking has changed since or optin was the minister who went to kyoto and negotiated a deal on behalf of new zealand and at the time on cute or favorite forestry offsets strongly but he has since changed his mind on it significantly. The thinking then was that it would give us time to give tom to develop policies to actually reduce emissions and it was clear eventually that it's not all long term solution at basted social. Tim fix to buy time because a Now realized that. It favoured the plantation of commercial pine. But that comes with a cease to affect that you plant the trees and their secrets the carbon. They stripped out of the out of the atmosphere. But then of course you cut the trees down and you release will at counter back into the atmosphere so forest off seats really. We can't rely on them for a strong as we have so far in the climate change commissioners quite clear on that for associates will remain a significant tool for the emissions. That we cannot easily reuse. We shouldn't rely on them as strongly as we have..

"Carbon and give the incentive to industries to change something about the way they do things there was little thinking about regulation in fact that was looked down upon wouldn't do anything about changing the way we transport things around with into much thinking about how designed cities to make it easier for people to not have to use their car so all of this kind of thinking was just not happening. You mentioned the business. Roundtable was roger kerr in charge of it at the time he was and he passed away a few years ago so that wasn't able to talk him obviously but are have gone back to some of those submissions that the business roundtable made at the time and in this mission to this proposed comtex. By the time we're talking ninety three ninety four and the proposal was to have a three a period in which the industry would have time to volunteering find ways reducing emissions. And if that didn't happen in nineteen ninety-seven that'd be carbon takes introduced at tim. Knowles tunnel from carbon dioxide and today proposal the The business roundtable at the time made a submission to say that. We're not sure enough where the news would infect possibly benefit from rising temperatures yet. Cloud of to submission was that the temperatures would rise so gradually that people could adapt to it or industries for to it and the for new zealand. Shouldn't do anything too. Hasty end should do anything much at all. Really but the business roundtable. That's the right wing. Think tank of the time does something else it broughton climate sceptics people who were part of an orchestrated denial campaign and they came out and you know went on a tour and new zealand. So veronica who with a so one was richard lindzen. Who was an mit professor monotonous feerick physicist. I've published more than two hundred scientific papers. For thirty years i taught at. Mit during which time the climate has changed remarkably little but the cry of global warming has grown evermore shrill and beaune lem walk was not a one. he's arguments less about the understanding of the climate system. But more about how we deal with that in arguing for for standing back and doing this rather than war if you realize what. The climate science is actually telling us as climate change is a problem by reasonably manageable problem. Gosh so so. The business roundtable was hugely influential. I don't know about hugely Powerful yes a powerful lobby group representing business interests influential in the same said. The people there brought out obviously did get coverage in the media. You know i'm just wondering what attitudes were like. And they time it would have influenced some people and it was perhaps also. There's this sort of process that we still have ongoing today. But perhaps less saw off of sewing down. So you hit this. This one body that intergovernmental plan on climate change which was bringing to get a scientists to assist research into in produced. These reportedly six or seven years and there were hundreds of them involved in the process. You had this one body producing these assessments. But you had other individual often scientists with a with a good pedigree. In in academic research stowing doubt con raising questions. And that's did confuse people at politicized the issue. It polarized issue and raised arguments steps in time..

"Me about nine hundred ninety. We were at near zero carbon emissions. So the brave for for the pace was to go back and look at the history because we know that we now looking at three decades of rising emissions science journalist. Veronica maduna was digging into the big story of our emissions record. She came across something staggering. Went back to nine thousand nine hundred because that is the year that we started. The inventories net country started to track the missions. And i to be honest. I was surprised to see that that. Back thing mia carbon neutral four carbon dioxide so not for the greenhouse gases such carbon dioxide a next golden. We're now trying to get back to you by three hundred fifty. I'm sharon brick kelly. Today on the details we were so close through two years ago. Now with part of the global meese code ran for humanity ever changes now. Rapid widespread intensifying. Our future is going to be warmer than it is right now. Crackling wildfires raging rivers devastating storms evidence. Climate change said on monday. That human activity is indisputably to as preparations gear up for this november's cop twenty six climate summit in glasgow we've known for decades world is warming and locally new zealand is currently on a parkway that would enable us to pow mystic target and fill our international obligation to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by twenty by twenty fifty. You immediately. Think that if we've done something stronger. Being during the ninety. S chris kate. We could easily be innovative from the place. Now today. we look at the mistakes and missed opportunities with maduna. She's written about it in a story. For north and south called we spent twenty five years doing virtually nothing but first a basic explanation of carbon dioxide emissions versus greenhouse gas emissions. Who new zealander thing this three most relevant greenhouse gases are commodore signed me thane from agriculture nitrous oxide from agricultural. So the letter to are coming out of agriculture world. Carbon dioxide is essentially part of everything. Else we do. So that's energy. That's manufacturing transport that's carbon dioxide emissions are the main part. What was going on in thousand nine hundred i mean. Why was that figure so good. Was that joe too good policy or was it. Good luck more than letter infect. It was a carbon neutral points. It's not that we had no emissions. It's just that we had a good mix of emissions in the balancing from forestry. So it wasn't good policy because issue wasn't really good stage of developing policy. But ninety nine hundred was the year we're the intergovernmental panel on climate change produced. Its first assistance. Those the first time we actually looked at all the research that had been done up to that point points and what we can do to mitigate or to lower emissions reduce emissions. so it's important year in medicines. One surprise for me. When i was researching the story was that all went back to nineteen eighty eight back the climate scientists. It got together. He and wellington then done already discussed issues that we are still talking about that. Disgust civilized disgust. How arise in emissions and the consequence of warming will how we can do agriculture lift. Hell we can do just about anything. And what was the language like. That was used the because now the language is so dramatic really when it comes to talking about climate. Change us note. I mean code rid. The latest report it's apocalyptic almost but what we level of concern back. Then i've just got in front of y'all got a sunday star one page. Destroy that reports on this on this conference. Nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight and it describes it as an issue profound political importance. Something that will require significant changes across all industries and to me. It almost feels like we're word. Eddo level of recognizing this was a big issue in the nineteen ninety s in the green through a dip in both public awareness but was a sort of political importance and then confusion. I came with some of that. Denying forces was that nineteen ninety. There there was a major political assertion. Globally yes say. By that point we had the un framework convention on climate change. It started to find nations into commitments to do something that the actual plan when it happened much later in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven at kyoto climate summit but it was the beginning of of that process even before nine thousand nine hundred new zealand's labour governments sore climate change was the biggest show and had policies to cut emissions. But what was the hurry. L. pollution levels were offset by forestry. People won't really talking about it. The national minister simon ogden's proposal for a carbon tech's fellow ver. It could have put us with the group of countries that have reduced emissions and steed at gross emissions have risen twenty six percent over thirty years. You has manage previous targets by offsetting emissions. And i think that's one of the major factors that place into this that the policy approach was one of least cost like you not actually doing anything about real cuts about the actual pollution. Really what happened in in the nineteen ninety s. What was the tuning point. Who were the people influencing the decision making at this time after remember. This was the time of roy genomics very short time. We divided the della. We got rid of agricultural subsidies. We reduced tariffs. We simplify the tech system. Deregulation privatization in strong belief in market forces was the thinking at the time say hymns the focus was on. If we're going to do something about emissions it would have to come through a.

She teaches at drexel university in philadelphia and she was working on a new book about face recognition. She was tracking down stories of people trying to avoid law enforcement taking drastic steps to change their appearance. Everything from people trying to dodge modern face recognition software to a famous british train robber ronnie biggs who got plastic surgery in order to evade the authorities after his massive train. Theft as she got deeper into this kind of research looking for more examples of people changing their faces using search terms like criminals and plastic surgery. She stumbled upon something else entirely. This whole other world turns up what she found. Blew her mind.

September 17th, 1859: Joshua Norton Declares Himself Emperor the United States
"The day was september seventeenth. Eighteen fifty nine a failed gold rush era businessman named joshua norton visited the offices of the san francisco bulletin. He gave the editor a short notice to be published in that day's paper and it began as follows at the peremptory request of a large majority of the citizens of these united states. I joshua norton of san francisco california declare and proclaim myself emperor of these united states. Now not much is known about norton's early life before his time as the self proclaimed emperor but what we do know is he was born around eighteen eighteen to a jewish family of merchants in present day. London when he was two. His family moved to south africa where his father established a successful ship. Supply business norton trying to get into the family business himself but his own ship supply. Company wound up going bankrupt after less than two years by the time he was thirty years old. Both of his parents and two of his siblings had died so one year later in eighteen. Forty nine norton left south africa for good in made his way to san francisco like many aspiring businessmen of his day. Norton had traveled to california hoping to capitalize on the recent gold rush after receiving his inheritance. He was worth about forty thousand dollars. Which is well over a million dollars. In today's money in san francisco. He invested that money in real estate including waterfront property. He also started a successful commodities business selling staple foods like rice and flour by eighteen.

How to Create Your Own Product for eCommerce
"What most people call market research. I call a very superficial idea. I mean it's twenty twenty one. This idea was being outlet for years. It's not enough to use helium tan or jungle scout. Whatever you up of choices if you're in the amazon space or of its new google space h refs or whatever the nfl shop or find your main traffic. John could be through legal Seo whatever it is. That is not enough in my opinion. Okay well that means you understand the keywords as being typed into google or amazon by the searches but you don't understand the lives of the searches and the search intent is always going to be a guest work so you really dive deep. I think and then the flip side of that is by diving deep into market research. It means you're creating a product is much more likely to actually exactly solve a problem for a specific insieme. So that the two sides of the same coin buddy okay so break down the steps towards what's step one. Step two step three. How do you do this. What's the routine. Yes so this is a market research side. The first thing is to start with who you are and what you know. A lot of people tend to start with keyword research and for example. Somebody who's twenty years. A doctor trying to see some brand plus it which he knew nothing about to send him. Could it be that we need to tap into your expertise in some married one. One example extreme example of somebody. I interviewed recently. Jason frontiers based on in florida actually formed the business for athletes and hip. One of his business partners has is a doctor of physical medicine. So in british contacts means a physiotherapists really genuinely expert. Very very expert in. And he's seven crawford athletes straightaway the have a competitive advantage built-in based on who's on the team which is something to really think about how you can get an item advantage built in because you have disadvantages already because you don't know what you're doing had this is your first time out with physical products or even if you go into new market and you've been selling in ten years or superfly may new market you have a built in disadvantage to build one in so. I think that's really important thing to be honest so brainstorming. What you really know. It's such a common story you just expressed and i've i've had these experiences. Well where you talk to people. And they have ten twenty thirty years of experience. In a certain industry or vocation and when it comes to them building an online business they go in just some completely random different like you know dream
A Friendly Ghost Story
"I think we talk a lot about ghosting in the romantic context right But it also happens with friends. Obviously and the reason. I want to talk about friend. Ghosting today is. Because i think it's an example of a larger problem with how friendships tend to end like what happened with one of our listeners. I just remember. There was one particular instance where she called me. And i looked at the phone and i was like oh i can't do this. I just didn't answer. This is dana lucic and a couple years ago. Dana goes did a good friend of hers when she learned her friend with pregnant. Oh my inner feminist is really angry at me. Because i know that women are able to do everything and anything to be cleared. Dana was excited for her friend but she was also worried about their friendship. Changing i am now thirty years old and i do not want children and i struggle when my friend start to have children because i feel like they change and i feel like they you know of course obviously wanna spend a lot of time with their kids talk about their kids and i'm just not interested.

I really respect her ruthlessness about it. Yeah and dino wasn't always like this
Exploring The Murder of Yvonne Lane: Reaching Out to Joe Wilkes
"It seemed like the best way to get to the bottom of what was going on was to finally speak to the man whose testimony landed david in prison for life. It was time to reach out to joe wilkes to be clear. I personally have not spoken to joe as you know the private investigators from proclaim justice advised me to let them do all the interviews during their preliminary investigation. Anything i may say or ask. A witness could taint their statements for the court. So john hardin wrote joe informing him of who he and danny wexler are and what they're doing reinvestigating the murder to find the truth of what happened now for i've seen between sue and joe hearing all the interviews. He's done with sue and other media. I did not think that joe would be too happy to hear from anyone plus if you remember even though he told police that he killed you on by cooperating and telling the police that david had hired him. He got a lesser sentence than david. Thirty years with the possibility of parole. Joe has already done twenty two years so he could be looking at freedom in just eight years. I figured he would have no interest in bringing all of this up again. I thought he would just wanna finish out his time and move on without any of the mass that happens every time he speaks to someone about this case and when i say mess i mean all of his conflicting statements in fact i figured he would actually send them a nasty message back telling them to fuck off or something if he even responded. But that didn't happen. Joe wrote back eager to talk and tell his story so the guys worked setting up a legal visit which proved to be next to impossible in ohio to get done in a timely manner and so we waited and waited. But in the meantime we couldn't wait time so we tracked down some other key witnesses. I

Share some examples of how you've done this most recently. I was thinking about this concept of gratitude. And in fact john i will tell you again. You inspired me. Yes you've been a journal or for many many years you manage spoken about and you got people going. I like a certain. Take on it. That i thought was different. Which was i thought that the concept of constant happiness was something that people should be talking about. My concern was people would write in their journal once a week twice a week when tonight and i wanted i believe that by by writing in a journal about your your the things. You're grateful for that's how you're going to develop happiness so this was my idea and i decided you know i wanna share this with people and i experimented frank bay experiment that i myself a lot and then i said i'm going to make this happen. What resources do i have so having now been an entrepreneur for thirty years. My day job is that i'm an investment advisor but i've done a lot of a lot of other entrepreneurial things let's say frequently around books but but the book is just the platform that i can launch an idea so i said i'm gonna write the constant happiness gratitude journal. But who do. I have to help me and i have a whole list of people. I've got my video guy who was able to make fantastic videos about it.

What is Joint Inflammation?
"Age we really don't die from infections. That's very rare in in a first world country but the body is hardwired itself to protect itself against some sort of infectious bacteria from damaging major regions of the body. And so the way that it's it's hardwired. This adaptation is through inflammation inflammation is an immune response where the body starts up regulating all these different immune cells that damage things and they take they certainly will target damage bacteria and protect us from dying from the infection. The unfortunate thing is when they're up when when we have inflammation up for a period of time. It damages are vital organs as well. You know we've all experienced like a sprained ankle and we've had swelling and pain in that area that's part of the inflammation processes damaging tissue. It's actually breaking down tissue so that the to the tissue can be rebuilt. it's also protecting against the infection. The problem is when that inflammation never stops and when it's a low grade Kind of smoldering level of inflammation over time that damages different regions right in affects every system of the body. And of course today we're talking about joints and the main things that will experience when we have chronic joint inflammation is joint degeneration osteoarthritis. And of course we will have pain rights. We'll have pain in the joint. While limited range of motion and mobility in the joint and we will obviously experience painted discomfort and a loss of interest star ranger motion and our ability to really live the way that we wanna live. So here's an example of a normal joint here's an example of osteoarthritic joint right a inflamed damaged joint now typically takes a minimum of twenty to thirty years of chronic joint inflammation. It's not like this happens overnight. Usually a long process. Twenty thirty years of chronic inflammation in the joint to get to do to degenerate. Like this case. So it's not even like a year or two. Although you know in certain cases you can have like a car accident whiplash or you know major trauma possibly to your knee. This is a knee joint for example. That accelerates the inflammation of time however usually these are processes that take quite quite a few years decades to

"Plane and little, and she has to do with all of that in addition to being a woman in a time when women had little to no autonomy. So she has quite a lot to overcome and Jane is resilient in the face of all that adversity. I think the resilience that I'm most moved by in the book is Jane's Moral Resilience like she would quite literally rather be starving and homeless and act outside her own values or sacrificed her independence and I think it was amazing as a young person and as you know a woman in my early thirties now to be. To have this example of someone who's committed to her own spirituality and morality in a way that honors her own passions and desires without robbing her of equity. And then quickly the second down endorsed that yet. It's so so good. And there are lots of great film adaptations as well. The. Second Book I WanNa recommend is full disclosure. By Cameron. Garrett which is a young adult novel that focuses on an HIV positive teenager whose navigating high school and all the normal things that teenagers deal with like making and keeping friends falling in love and just developing as a person and the protagonist is the black adopted daughter of two gay men, both of whom are also people of Color it's primarily a story of the resilience of HIV positive people but it also touches on the resilience of Queer folks and Black and Brown people So if there is a young person in your life that you want to. Share. Some of those important stories with full disclosure is a great book for them. Those are great recommendations and Nick I know you have station eleven on your list which really struck me I loved it. I read it a few years ago in it felt more like fiction than than I think it would feel now. Is the wonderful scary thing about that book because you know in the middle of the pandemic why not go back to a book that is about a Pandemic and flu that decimates the population. What I loved about the book was that it begins with Shakespeare, which is how I want of course, all of my pandemic post apocalyptic books to begin In this case, it's King Lear and one of the stars dies onstage, and that's how the story begins and then we flash forward twenty years out to this pandemic has literally killed most of the population that we have a traveling troupe Called the traveling symphony that is itinerant and age wander around the Great Lakes region and they are artists doing the only thing that they know how to do how precent though Emily Saint John Mandell was in her book to describe some of the things that are happening today is uncanny loved about it though is that at the.

"You're going yes. Sorry. We have a delay. Of course we're all three different places due to the virus that we're talking about right now go ahead and add your point there. Normally. As far as you want some concrete data right now Massachusetts we have over thirty two thousand people that are living in nursing homes right in his estimated that at least ten, thousand of those people could be living in their own homes with the proper supports. So the onset decision on ninety nine ruled that unjustified segregation of people with disabilities in five discriminate because it violates the ADA and we all know to stable housing is one of the key determinants of health. Right. But if you look at it in this pandemic, ask for the Kobe nineteen, the highest death tolls over forty percent are amongst people living and working in nursing homes that's over forty five thousand people that have expired. Nationwide, in over fifty three, hundred people here in Massachusetts alone and folks that disabilities are definitely represented amongst those underlying medical conditions. So you know if you want to talk about again real intraday it integration, we have to be able to move folks out of nursing homes where they're more at risk out of these institutional facilities and move into the community where they can live independently access the American dream live, it fully, you know folks need some supports personal care attendants supported living do a variety of them, but the key for our state really is a lack of affordable and accessible housing. All right. So we have about two minutes left and I want to ask you both just briefly from each of you. If there were an ad a two point. Oh, law to come forward today what would be key provisions you'd WanNa see. Good question well, I'd say I think some key points for progress into the future. You know I think that that policy change and legislation and laws can change infrastructure and we've seen some impact there but but but laws don't necessarily change culture, and so I think when we think to the future of what could have the biggest impact we still have a lot of work to do as it relates to reducing or cultural bias and stigma around disability. Disability is something that impacts frankly nearly everyone at some point in life and that when we think about inclusive services. We need to understand that it's not just for a small subset of people in our society that's actually for everyone. So I, I would probably try to tackle it from the standpoint of thinking of how how we can. We can continue to make progress as it relates to things like the built infrastructure, things like accessibility and communications, things like closed captioning and accessible websites. But how we really get at the cultural change reducing stigma around disability and understanding that it's not a lesser way of living or something that needs to be devalued but actually heart of the big life experience that we all face. You that have about a half a minute left please are good for me. I'd say education and enforcement a laws only as good as it is enforced and I think education about some of the things that we talked about..

"Kind of a bellwether for whether some normalcy is possible during a global pandemic, the number of New England Patriots football players opting out of the two thousand twenty NFL season due to the corona virus is now to six including star linebacker and defensive captain, Dante hightower and the red. SOX are off to a miserable start to their coronavirus shortened season jumping four of their first five games with one of their starting pitchers out due to coronavirus complications. The world is watching and not just the games to see who will win in the match up between professional sports and the coronavirus. So here to give us a read on what's happening is Radio Boston's Chris. Derek? Chris. Welcome. Back. Thanks for having me spoiler alert the news is not good on that front. Well. Yes. So let's start with football and I'm going to ask you about the Patriots players opting out the same question I've been asking. So often during this pandemic, how big a deal is this? So I'm going to answer your favorite question with probably your least favorite answer, which is it depends I think you mentioned? Were we're still in the midst of obviously of global pandemic and I don't think anybody really knows exactly what the future is going to bring. We've heard a lot of talk about a possible second wave in the fall and we're going to be seeing college students returning to campuses and a lot of places kids going back to schools in some places So I think it all of this discussion really depends on what the next few weeks in the next few months bring for us. We may not even have a football season. So with that huge caveat at the beginning of the answer. I would say on the field it is actually a pretty big deal for the Patriots, just because of the names. Of the players who have said they were opting out this year you mentioned Dante High Tower is basically the quarterback of the defense. He's the guy who's out on the field calling the plays for the defense moving guys around when they need to move. He's one of the true leaders on this team coach Belichick has made him Mr February for all of his big plays in the postseason in super bowls. you also Patrick Chung who's kind of unheralded. But I think a big contributor who never really gets the recognition he deserves for the kind of flexible. He plays on this team You've got marcus cannon who's been a pretty steady presence on the offensive line, Brennan? bolden. WHO's a special teams contributor. So you've got some pretty big name players who have said they will not be playing this year for the Patriots. And clearly players who understand what the impact is of opting out. So what are they saying about this decision about why they're doing it when they know what it's GonNa do to the team? Yeah totally, and it depends on the individual player. So in Dante hightower's case, he just had a child about a month ago and he says, he thinks it's the right move for..

You also had within the party different factions jockeying for positions one faction believed in faster economic reforms and more westernization another faction that really oppose that as well. So you had you had to basically all the raw materials for real problems going from ADA nine students start to gather an and lobby the ability together without being monitored by the party. How do they do that? I mean, are they watched over are there? How does that happen? So what was starting in in as early as eighty eight in fact, even earlier than that? But eighty eight was really the beginning is that people wanted to form organizations that were not under the control come his party because one of the issues in China was that the party controlled everything. And there was no such thing as a right to organize freedom of sociation was is not part of Chinese communist party platform on the students. Basically that was a main demand that the student unions would not be run by the party. And so in universities such as Beijing University ching hall university Nanjing university Fudan, which is another major university in Shanghai students began to have these natch. Organizations formed and have these specically democracies what they called salons where Chinese liberals were invited to speak about democratization process about freedom of association and other freedoms the US Bill of rights statue of liberty the history of democracy, and in the west, and this type of interaction between Chinese students and some Chinese liberals really intensified eighty nine and the trigger, of course, for the demonstrations was the death of party secretary by the name of who y'all bond who died in April of nineteen eighty nine and who was somewhat of a symbol for westernisers in China. He is a guy who basically came out against chopsticks. He said using a knife and fork was more efficient, but he also was very important in rehabilitating, hundreds of thousands of Chinese intellectuals who've been purged during the anti rightist campaign in the mid fifties. But also the culture of Lucien from nineteen sixty six nine hundred seventy six and. How did you have access to them? I mean, did you already knew people from when you were studying in China, did you have greater access? So. Ahead lived in Chinese dormitory for a year and a half. And so when I went into these dormitories, I kind of felt like I was home, and that I think subconsciously resonated with the people there. I mean, I would like sit on their beds and kinda hang out like I hung out in my own dorm room six or seven years before. So I was a little bit younger. I spoke pretty decent Chinese. And I just kinda realized that they were like my classmates earlier jet. I mean a later generation, but they were very more my classmates their rooms looked and I think more importantly smelled like the room. I lived in an engine university for unit half. If for me, it wasn't as exotic as it probably appeared to many other western correspondents who hadn't had that experience. When you say, they weren't later generation that students that you described earlier are actually plucked back out of countryside and given the chance to go to school where these students who had expected to go to school. Yeah. These were students generally speaking who had gone through high school. So this is just their life experiences significantly different from the life experience from their elders and describe the energy of these meetings, these early meetings on campus, it was just full of this sense of possibility. And a real search for a new set of values for their country. A lot of patriotism deep love of their country and deep desire in the sense of what direction are we gonna take? And anything is possible. That was the overriding sense. You got was optimism about what China could do and we're trying to go..
