Are Wild Animals Really "Wild"?
"So human relationships with animals can be pretty weird We put them in categories based on how we see them. So there's pets. They're like members of the family. And then there's farm animals and they're often very similar to pets in terms of their cognitive abilities and their emotional abilities but of course we eat them and then there's wild animals and i've been wondering what allow animals even are anymore like you can get a degree in wildlife management but if you're managing them are they really wild. I started thinking about this. In the context of wolf reintroduction so when wolves were first brought back to the american west in the nineteen nineties they were pretty heavily managed and they still are today. A lot of them were callers they have. Gps trackers they have their dna on file names and numbers and if they get a taste for livestock than we hayes them with rubber bullets or air horns or sometimes those floaty guys that you see in used car lots and of course if they don't get the message they can be shot. So how wild are they really. If they're being this carefully managed it's occurred to me that a ground squirrel or a city. Robin is in some ways wilder than these wolves because although they might live in a city known is managing their day to day life but of course they are living in the human world a world that's been shaped by massive influences like conversion of land to agriculture extinctions domestication's movement of species across continent we've rerouted rivers and of course there's climate change which means that every animal no matter how distant from a human settlement has some influence of the human world so every animal lives in human world. Does that mean that we somehow though the more than we used to. I think it does so. Take polar bears for instance. Some populations of polar bears are struggling to live on the sea ice in the summer. There's not enough sea ice for them to go hunting for seals which is what they normally eat
'Jaws' Expert Valerie Taylor Tells What It's Like to Get Bitten by a Shark
"A debate brewing over sharks Should shark bites be called attacks or just encounters as beachgoers. Witness survivors getting rushed to the hospital viral video posted just this weekend showing a hammerhead shark in Panama City Beach getting a little too close to swimmers. Some wildlife experts are pushing to rebrand interactions with the ocean's apex predator, calling them bites, negative encounters or incidents instead of attacks. I would say any time we're painting any wildlife as interested in harming humans. We're reducing people's positive feelings about them. People's desire to see them conserved and protected and increasing the likelihood that people see them as Villains or antagonists. For years. They've been the bad guys in movies like Jaws. We're gonna need a bigger coach and the Meg about a massive megalodon shark. But experts say in reality shark bites are rare and that using language like attack gives a false impression of intent. Page winter who was bitten by a shark in 2019, losing part of her leg. Told all Robin Roberts she didn't see her encounter as the Sharks fault. This situation has urged me to learn more about sharks. I didn't do something directly to the shark, but I was in his water. You know, That's his house. But Dave Pearson, who survived a shark attack in Australia and now runs a support group called Bite Club says avoiding the word attack downplays the very real danger. We can't keep sanitizing things to the point where we It feels like when you're the person involved. It feels like someone's dismissing your experience and dismissing your troller is something that's insignificant. You need to be aware that there is an element of danger out there and we call them Apex predators for a reason. And predators bite things. Even Stephen Colbert weighing in on the debate. I'm sorry, ma'am, a shark interacted with your husband's torso. He's experiencing a not being alive. Incident. Whatever they're called. Officials are taking these encounters seriously in Cape Cod, where at least 50 confirmed great white shark sightings have been reported this past month on the APP, shark tive, itty. Researchers deployed acoustic receivers to track great whites to keep people safe. It's a really valuable way to find out more about the movement of great white sharks. That's important information for the public to know when they are going to the beach. You know where they might be more likely to encounter a white shark. When you're at the beach. Look for signs of sharks. If there are seals in the water. There might be sharks nearby, because they eat seals. If there are birds flying in the air, that means they're looking for fish that sharks are also probably looking for. So if you do go swimming, try to go in pairs in groups Just be smart. Generally and also remember that unprovoked shark bites are exceedingly rare. There were fewer than 100 globally just last year at CBC's will review coming

Introducing Navy SEAL and AZ-1 Congressional Candidate Eli Crane
"Maybe the week after 9 11. Like many Americans, I was pretty pretty angry about what happened. That attack on our country and I wanted to serve and go fight for those who couldn't fight for themselves and just take the fight to our enemies overseas. So I did that. I spent 13 years in the Navy. I did five deployments. Three of them will seal Team three. As a Navy seal.

When Amazon Bans My Husband He Is Not Using My Account
"Amazon bands. My husband he is not using my count. Amazon makes things too. Easy amazon is going to ban my husband. And that's why i need him to stay away from my amazon prime account. He will get me band to as soon as he said the hard hat i ordered sits on top of my head like a beanie cap. I knew what was coming year returning to the hard hat. I tried not to sound alarmed. It looks like i'm wearing an inverted mixing bowl. He said before heading off to the ups store which is conveniently located an eighth of a mile from our house. Amazon makes things too easy. You don't have to box up returns anymore. All you need to do is print out a code. Take your rejected item with the code to the ups store and they do the rest. You don't even have to seal the bucks. My husband who has ordered a lot of stuff has returned most of it. This isn't for lack of due diligence. He reads the reviews scours. The internet for deals examines every detail of whatever it is. He's buying then after much deliberation places his order but the rope he ordered last week was thinner than advertised and starting to fray. This shoes squeezed his toes. The firepit had a scratch. The cooler leaked the wine glasses. Were more like plastic than glass. The jeans were the wrong size. So you see why amazon will eventually ban him. They will conclude despite his many purchases that he is more trouble than it's worth.

Invest in the Stack With Justin Michael
"Though cyberspace. Scott ingram asked me to come on this show and talk about tech stocks. What are the myths really most sales leaders. Sierras i speak to. They're trying to cut their tech stack. But it's actually a paradox. You should be investing in higher quality. People do the open. Then you need to invest in tech stacks and only fifteen percent of high growth. Companies are even using a sequencer. Then you need to invest in training on the tech stacks then. You need to invest in strategic sales training. So you're looking at me and thinking. Wow all right daddy warbucks. Are you going to fund this thing. Let's think about it if you could take a team of five and give them the output of one hundred. Would you do that. Is it sensible to write single emails in twenty twenty one. Is it sensible to dial the phone one. At a time. I was doing an exhibition of a parallel system. Dialer knows able to call two hundred numbers in a couple of hours. Connect live twenty times. Get six referrals three points. I was able to do the work of to our days in two hours. Well after twenty consecutive hours. I was able to bring in one point. Two million dollars pipeline. So do the math. I'm willing to prove it out with the tech folks. It's a lot like the navy seals. You have to invest in the drain and invest in the armor. That's what i can tell you about. Rev ops and tech stocks your tech stack avoidance. You have to become you know. High technology quotient released his term. It's from psychology today. It could be a cue adaptability caution. Not huge acknowledged quotient. It's your ability to fuse. Human and machine and the first step is just curiosity right. If you're using outreach or sales lofter's zandt go look at the university. Go online and learn a bit. Like excel in you.

The Arctics Mysterious Ping
"In two thousand sixteen. A man piloted his sailboat. Through the fury and hecklers straight in the northern canadian territory of nunavut as he cut through the water his sonar equipment emitted a peculiar sound. It was a single long tone high pitched and shrill to consistent to be run of the mill background noise after a few moments. The sound stopped but it had already kick started a mystery. The sailor was the first person to hear the nunavut ping. We don't know how word spread but soon news of the pain had reached the local at town of igloo. Lick as with many small hamlets in northern canada. A lot of glue lick residents relied on the ocean. They made their living hunting seals and other water mammals and they usually found their prey in the fury and hecklers straight. This waterway boasted an abundance of seals and was free from ice year round but recently hunters had struggled in the fury and hekla straight. Nobody knew why but the animals were disappearing win. The glue lick heard about the ping. They assumed a connection. The southbound must be driving the seals out of the fury and heckler straight even more concerning the ping hadn't done away over the next few weeks other hunters and if few vacationers on yachts detected it as well. If they listened carefully they could hear it through their hall but it appeared clear as day on sonar witnesses described it as a beep abuzz or most commonly ping no one could figure out where it came from

Surfer Survives Great White Shark Attack
"The West and East Coast is more from a B C's aerial. Russia officials urging beachgoers to remain vigilant after a little girl was apparently bitten by a shark off the coast of North Carolina. Emergency responders rushing to Ocean Isle Beach over the weekend. The seven year old sustaining injuries to her leg authorities say were consistent with a shark bite based on their size and pattern. When more people go in the water. There is an increase opportunity for an interaction with a shark, and so you see that happening on the east coast of the United States during our summers, but it comes as researchers say. They have located a separate 12 FT. Great White named Ironbound off the shores of North Carolina Monday that shark being tagged off Nova Scotia two years ago in the West, a surfer bitten by a great white shark south of San Francisco in the back of his right leg. I hustled over to him and and the first thing he said, was shark bite. Can you help me? I've been bit by a shark. And so I kind of immediately went into You know kind of this fight or flight mode and and did my best to try to try and help him bystanders helping to wrap the wound until paramedics could transport the 35 year old man to the hospital, and they lost about a pint of blood. And they were able to put a tourniquet on new drone video from earlier this month showing a shark swimming close to the site of that attack. Increased likelihood is obviously gonna occur. In the summertime when more people are getting in the water, and particularly if people are choosing to get in the water in and around seals. Basically now swimming with their food, Though these incidents are rare, experts caution to pay attention to your surroundings before deciding to jump in the water. People do need to just use some common sense when they go to the beach. I want to swim right out into the middle of the food chain. If you see Bates and fish crashing and seals feeding and birds diving moved down the beach to a quieter place where you can go swimming in the whole food change, not colliding. As for that little girl in North Carolina. She got some stitches in the hospital, but she's okay. And that's a B C's aerial. Russia coming up next

"a. sealed" Discussed on First Take
"At the three. You have lebron at the five. You have take your pick. Kareem will check now at the four. You have a d- the lakers are going to have a claim pretty soon to having the best ever or very close to it at every single position on the court one through five. This is an enormous signing of anthony davis plus an enormous sign of. But if you're going to bring up history let's be. Let's be accurate what you're saying. You're you're absolutely right about what jeanie buss told you But you know you. And i have. historically disagreed with the signs of kobe. Because she said you gotta show that you're taking care of your own but you also have to remember. They knew that they were beyond competing. They knew that they were going to be that good. But in the end. Kobe bryant injured and all was their box office. Attraction people came to the staples center to see that brother and the bottom line is when you look at what jim bus was doing with this team. It was all you had. She knew she was about to get into a battle with jim bus. She knew he needed to go. She needed all the help that she could get. And the one thing to keep things afloat. Even though they were going to lose game was the presence of kobe bryant which made him worth at the time every single penny they offered them even though he was not healthy. The bottom line is that is. It is just that simple. And as it pertains lebron now you again. You cannot say enough about lebron's leadership with this team over the past year keeping things together. It had a lot. He had a lot to do with that. Anthony davis had something to do with it as well. But you can't. It's not just about his excellence on the basketball court. It's how he's been able to galvanize the troops which is something kawai. Leonard has not done yet and that's why it has a huge huge challenge ahead of him because everybody saw what lebron has done in that same arena. Let's see what could why does this year. The greatest pairing of the little and the big point guard. Who remember little the point guard and the big in history. Is it magic and kareem. Is it kobe and shaq. is it lebron. And a d. their los angeles lakers. Oh look i. I love lebron. Ad let's not mention them in the same breath as magic and kareem please. I think we need to stop that. We need to stop that. Don't blast list on this national airways right here. No you cannot compare lebron. Ad to anybody you could compare them as individual talents. But let's be very very clear. I keep how many what do i bring all the time. Molly resume excuse me karimun who want a great scoring nba six titles nothingness or alternative -ccomplish that yet. I'm talking about where they rank you talk about. The big day are going to be there. They got a chip one of the just got together. How would that yeah. It's new love all right max. Anthony davis averaged twenty six points per game. The first time in lebron's career that he didn't lead his team in scoring what fellas i got more. Nba news for. You told you today is going to be fun. So here's the deal. The wizards announced they're sending john wall and a future. First round. pick to the rockets for russell. Westbrook is the deal that both players wanted and had been simmering for according to our adrian. Drowsy this pick sent to houston along with wall a lottery protected. twenty twenty. Three selection would reporting that stephen a smith baker. Dale tell me. Is it wall to houston or is it russ to washington will i think rushed to washington that that that. That's how i'm feeling about it right. Now when i think about russell westbrook You know listen. The differences skillset russell. Westbrook is two nations so as john wall russell westbrook assists a little better from the field. Not as good from three point range of but they both have a locomotive they go at one hundred miles per hour and that mentality russell. Westbrook has that dog in him where he is fiery. All the tom going one hundred miles per hour backs down to no one that the not john wall isn't like that either because he is to a degree just not as demonstrative with it as russell. westbrook is. I'm here to tell you right now. Chocolate city the people. That i know i got a lot of loved ones. They're they are going to love. Russell westbrook's attitude being variety center. I'm here to tell you that right now is going gonna be something special with him and bradley beal because unlike james harden who dribbles a lot before he wreaks havoc bradley. Beal doesn't need to draw that much in order to beat the marksman that he is and this is a brother that just finished averaging thirty thirty season because i love me some bradley beal even though some people that i know who will remain nameless the high on him they know who they are but in the end i am and i'm telling you right now i think it's a plus for them but for me the reason why it's also a pluses because even though i believe in john wall and i know he can ball. I just don't see how this keeps james harden wanting to stay in. Houston which is why. I'm at a loss as to why houston would do this deal other than the fact that they tried to get rid of. Russ and you know. According to sources a lot of folks weren't they didn't want russ because russ can be fiery and very strong willed and strong edit and because of that You'd have basketball operations. Folks may not have wanted to deal with them so the houston rockets might have felt. They got the best deal. Could i just don't see how this helps them. More than the skillset russell westbrook and they wanna play together. Max we all know that. But i don't see how john wall who's very similar to russell. Westbrook helps james harden want to stay in. Houston that's my only reticence about this. Well you clearly. Clearly the wizards won this deal. And you want to know. How the teams without daryl. Morey live like this. What is houston signaling here. They're getting a first round. Pick you want to know who got. Who's the better player obviously westbrook. He's two years older but he's not coming off a catastrophic injury. He always plays with everything. He's got and has been a greater player at his best and than john wall john. Wall's been excellent. Need one can really shoot certain kinds of similarities there but one team had to include a first round. Pick in the deal and that team was washington. Houston gets a first round pick. So what are they really signaling with this. Because keeping james harden that's done that ship has sailed hardest out of their. Everyone knows he's going to be traded. Really what what what. Houston is signaling. Here what for tita is signaling. I think is look. We're not gonna try championship next three years but after that we are so. Here's something to watch. In the meantime we'll get when we can for heart and we'll try to accumulate. Some first round picks. Don't forget they had to move a lot of them in order to get westbrook in order to put the team together originally and we'll see what we can do. I think it was a big mistake. To let. Go of. Daryl morey if i had daryl morey as gm and he came into my office. And said i wanna go somewhere else. I'd say let's make this right. Forget about what's happened. let's make it right. Here's some more money. Here's whatever you need. An ida kept daryl morey in terms of washington they have arguably the best back court and basketball right now. I mean the p. Three in devon booker. Yeah i take that as number one. So what's this number two because claes hurt. Where does.
"a. sealed" Discussed on POLITICO's Nerdcast
"Has not changed. and. It's really after the postal corporation idea is enacted nineteen seventy that you see this real flourishing of private deliveries like like Fedex is founded in nineteen seventy one, and then following that you begin to have this whole conversation sort of grafted on to the political landscape where there are a lot of free market advocates who believe that this is a government monopoly and it should be something left up to the private sector, and so we should entrust groups like Fedex and these companies to be able to do the role of the postal system without the government being involved. And more and more as the years pass. They sort of the drum on this and call into question. The postal systems profitability, what it spending its money on and overtime, the postal system actually does improve. And it starts making for lack of a better term prophet in the nineties, there were three years where it achieved a revenue surplus starting nineteen, thousand, nine, hundred, five, it is consistent lay earning revenue surpluses and is making a big profit in the early two thousands even though we're seeing more and more communication shift. Online as things like email come into wide usage. Then, the other inflection point that all builds up to is in two thousand six. What what happens is the culmination of the series of? Conflicts. Government as to what the postal services doing. With its money. And that comes during the Bush administration when there's this idea that the postal service should start. Using its profits to pay for the future retiree benefits. Of postal workers who aren't yet retired. And this is written into law and it's mandated that the postal system needs to start putting down this money and so basically after this is passed in two thousand and six creates a huge funding crisis year after year after year, the US PS continue to pay this expense. But has very limited options for how to and so this is when you see postal rates start to go up even as more and more communication shifts, online and shifts to mobile phones, and so the price of stamps goes up pretty drastically the demand for first rate mail going down and you also have around the same time you know the two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine recession, and all of this sort of. Results in the postal system really weakening year after year after year, the number of employees has gone down drastically since two thousand nine I think the order of about one, hundred and fifty thousand. And all of this weakens the Postal Service twenty twelve you see the postal service actually starting to slow the mail down to two relaxing delivery standards. So first, class mail that you might see in an urban area getting to its destination to the next day my ticket, a couple of days might even take three. You had postmaster general calling for cutting Saturday delivery closing windows service, or or shortening window service time closing post offices, closing mail processing plants, things like that. That did not save much money. But did compromise service and reliability of the postal service weakens it to a point that now In the middle of a pandemic at a time when people are oftentimes unable to leave their house safely in order to get things like the prescriptions or to go out to the store and instead they rely on. Amazon and Amazon intern often relies on the postal system. Now in the middle of the pandemic when there is this real demand and need for the postal system, it is weakened to a point where it is not entirely able to fulfill that demand is not entirely able to rise to that challenge because it's been weakened, and because it faces these funding problems that need to be changed by law, it's not something that can.

"Had already been made. By going back to yesteryear in the postal system and the way that it expanded over time really tracks with the entire story of America in the Post Office. Pre Exists Declaration of Independence with founded a year early. And you have the expansion westward as. Desk takes all the. Colonies expand further west. United States post office devoted exclusively to the service of its owners the American public. So, central to the questions that we're facing right now is this idea of like, what is the postal service like what is it? How are we thinking of it? Do we think of it as a service, a public service or do we think of it as something more like? A. Business. And that's been the question that the debate around the postal system is really revolved for the last couple of decades. So if we rewind on this whole issue that we're facing right now, there are sort of two inflection points in the last fifty years or so when it comes to the postal system, one happens in nineteen seventy. So nineteen seventy things. Really do explode at the post office, the first strike and one hundred, ninety, six years since Benjamin Franklin set off the system. You see a postal strike as a result of years of neglect of public worker's compensation and their rights where basically mail throughout the country stops in many places between a quarter and a third of all postal workers struck in thirteen. Different states six, hundred, seventy, one different stations, and it lasts for eight days. It's a wildcat strike, it's illegal it's not allowed to happen, but it does it is a domestic crisis with a potential economic impact perhaps the greatest since the depression and this is at a time that before the Internet so people's checks are being held up people's bills are. Being held up he stayed out even after Nixon called up sixteen thousand troops to New York City to try to move the mail the troops unarmed. So I'm sorry he he called up troops to deliver mail are supposed to work the male here I mean the idea I think was you know they could process it and deliver it but the troops were Not. trained. Takes, a lot of skill takes. Years to get good and to get fast at to keep that to keep the male running in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy. And whereas when you see this type of Protests when you see this type of strike and you see it really disrupt people's lives. oftentimes, you would expect that the public would not be on board with that. But what Nixon underestimated. Was that people have a connection with their letter carriers like they know their postal workers the most gratifying part I think of carrying mail was when I had my own route and got to know people either people who deliver things to your house every day to follow up with people like if somebody was missing a check or of they'd sent a letter out in the they wanted me to put a tracer on it now if they want me to bring stamps out. Who Know Your neighborhood, who walked door to door and people that you may develop a friendship with the same the same people you know watching kids grow up on the route feeling like I was part of that neighborhood. It is one of the only ways that the government in. Personal. Way. Touches everyone. Every day you're conscious when you're wearing a uniform, you really are on stage you are being evaluated. How are you behaving? You know that's at least how I approach debt and this led to people. Really. Identifying with their postal workers and identifying with the striking workers and so Nixon very quickly sort of buckled. He realized that he needed to get on the right side of the politics on this. And he concedes a whole bunch of the demands but in exchange he gets his postal corporation. And once that happens it really changes in the tenor of the discussion where do you begin to see these questions about profitability and whether or not? The Post Office is making a profit becomes central to discussions about the postal system.

You have kids we've been talking about school and the disruption have that affects affects kids. There's a whole lot else going on. How worried argue? That the experience of this pandemic will be stamped on your children and their development forevermore. I'm extremely worried about that I. Mean I I think about it every day and I know. I?

Think Kids are resilient and you know if you look at. The ARC of human childhoods for most of for most of history, it's you know.

The more potentially gets lost. At the same time I mean some of what we're talking about. Here is suffering imposed on parents and costs imposed on parents rather than kids, but for all of that I mean look you know my kids have. My kids have watched more TV than they ever watched before I broke down and let them watch the Star prequels, which is something I swore I would never do. Miss my son misses having boys to play with. He's stuck in a house of. His Dad was up in the attic. podcasting like you know there there are costs but I'm hopeful that they'll look back and say you know.

"Don't see why he can't do that again with trump. Can I just say three things about the debates one? All of this concern about how good a debater Biden is, would you please point me to trump's great debate from the last election cycle? I mean Biden will be up there with Donald Trump. Who I'm sorry is not a particularly good debater himself a B. because of voting by mail, being increase because the pandemic, and also that's just the trend. More people will be. Be Voting early than ever before some people will be voting before all three, or maybe even before two debates have happened, and finally Biden's best debate was the debate where he was one on one with Bernie Sanders and had to fill the most time, so I think this notion that Biden's going to crumple into cognitive wrecked during the debate is way way overblown?

I'm what's most maddening. Overall is just that. Everybody's hair isn't on fire about this right that this isn't being treated as a national emergency requiring mobilization at every level because there are ways to make this work, I mean the the real way to make it work obviously is to get the virus under control like most other countries in the developed world, so that people can resume their normal lives in our current situation. Here in New, York schools are saying that they're likely to reopen, but on some sort of staggered part time schedule either your kids will go to school maybe two days a week and be at home the rest of the time, or they will go to school every other week and the ideas that you have to have many fewer people in the classroom in order to maintain social distancing guidelines, but you don't see any sort of. Creative, thinking about repurposing other space for classroom, even though the city is full of empty office space right now, you don't see any creative thinking about trying to do outdoor classes when the weather permits Emily Oster and economist who writes a lot about parenting and raising kids had this idea that I included in my column of recruiting a core of college, students or people would be college students if you know if college was in session to basically serve as.

Here's the lay of the land, but I do not want anyone to relax I agree. With Michelle sense of how much is at stake in this next election I agree that no one can relax, and that any sort of discussion that would people into a sense of complacency as a dangerous when I don't think however that voters are going to be lulled there. I think that the pandemic the economy, the trauma of what will then be almost four years. Years of Donald Trump I think those are going to prevent complacency and I want to I. Myself Really wanting to assure Michelle because I I hear you Michelle about how nerve wracking this is, and how much is on the line in terms of if this man got another four years, and everything is on the line, but there are a couple of other things that. That give me hope and I'll tell you one of them Donald Trump. His election campaign hinges in large measure on painting. This extraordinarily dark caricature of the left and one of the dangers is that the left plays into it but I'm seeing signs that they're not playing into it the mayor of Seattle. What did she do when that protests own got out of hand? Hand she. Shut it down the mayor of Atlanta. What did she just do? When there was a fatal shooting in the protests on, she said enough is enough guys. She Shut Down Donald. Trump can't character that sort of leadership, because that leadership is exactly as it should be, it is not unhinged. That is not utterly permissive. It is balanced and it is sane. Well and also, the candidate is Joe Biden right. I mean I sometimes wonder what this moment would be like if the candidate were. Bernie Sanders though. I would have preferred Bernie Sanders to Joe Biden. But in some ways the fact that Joe Biden. was such a disappointment to the left because he's such a kind of conventional Democrat because he has a knock record on. Criminal Justice, it makes him very very hard to caricatured right. Nobody believes that that Joe Biden is ANTIFA. And so in some ways. You Know I. Don't know if he's the ideal candidate for this moment, but he's a very hard candidate for donald trump to paint as an agent of chaos or instability and something I've been thinking a lot about is that you know? At some point during this nightmare I interviewed Erica channel with WHO's an expert on mass nonviolent protest, including protests that in other countries have brought down authoritarian leaders and I remember her talking about how. Often it works.

In recent NPR poll if you look at the polls right now in terms of the distance between him and Biden and I don't just mean nationally where it's double digits for a good month now, but I also mean in the key swing states, which is more important, and if you look at all of this historical context, you come to the conclusion. that.

Was this idea this philosophy that they were? GonNa Kinda. Dig In and start working on the two thousand and twenty one CBA now the entire focus of all discussions it. They just went through. Should have been. How do we get on the field for twenty twenty? That's it. Let's agree let's let's agree not to dive into the. Eighteen months down the road discussion that's GonNa. Really take a long time and ring some hands. Let's just figure out how to get on the field, and the problem is when, and this probably should've happened sooner to buster. When the Commissioner flies out to Phoenix has a face to face with the president of the Players Association Tony Clark. And you think that you have a deal when you get on a plane six hours later and then the phone rings someplace over Nebraska. And it's somebody else involved in the PTA. And he says Oh. Yeah, Mr. Commissioner, You know about that agreement that you just struck with the president of our group. I've got some questions and some other things that need to be addressed. Why would you fly out there to meet with the highest ranking official in the organization? When somebody else's just gonNA, shoot bullet holes through the deal. Did they really want to deal I mean I angle by questions at this point, because what they were presented and back to your point on the Trevor Bauer tweet that was a win for the Players Association. They wanted one hundred percent pro rated. They wanted their whole their whole salary. They got that number up. They got other things that they wanted everything they asked for was in there except for a piece of the postseason money. And the ability to file a grievance, and that the the grievance thing is where MLB drew the line so look. We've kicked this around for for such a long time. The two thousand twenty one agreement negotiations are going to be brutal. The landscapes pretty bad right now I I'm just pleased that they got sixty games agreed to kind of hear. We hope to have a postseason barring any unforeseen Kovic related difficulties, and maybe some of the good feelings that will come from this can help I dunno know. A little piece. In eighteen months you hope so and I wrote a piece in mid-may. Saying that whenever you know the dust settled in, we're kind of at that point now that both sides need to sort of reassess, okay. What did we to contribute to this situation? to this incredibly toxic non-productive relationship and I, am I think there is going to be some change on the players side before we get to next big round of negotiations we'll we'll. We'll see how that plays out all right so of all of the Corona virus protocols. What do you think is the most cumbersome? man, there are a lot of them that that you you wonder. Just. How letter of the law players will be able to execute? All players are taking this seriously and I don't mean indicate that anybody's images blow this off. But the idea that bullpen pitchers have their own kind of hermetically sealed bucket of baseball's. Such a weird one for me. So, you know when the rosters are big in the beginning of the season and I say there's a thirteen man bullpen down there or an eleven man Bolton. You'RE GONNA. Have Eleven different containers of baseball's? That'll be labeled. The Bullpen Catcher, this poor guy is going to have to figure out when to clean his glove win to wear the The surgical glove the plastic surgery on his throwing hand, and then to take it off between guys warming up. And the guys really get hosed. Are the equipment guys in the kids working in the clubhouse? They've got to sort out a ton of new equipment medical equipment in addition to all the different baseball containers that now exists when all that stuff gets put on the truck and sent off on the road. It's more work for the club on the other end on the receiving it, Oh and by the way club he's don't get tipped the way they did. Because of the two thousand sixteen CBA. So. This this whole thing is so messy I just I wanNA watch, and that's the process I wanted to watch when camps open, I wanNA watch what that bullpen looks like with all the different color coded buckets. Baseball's that are labeled for each pitchers. Use that is that to me is going to be fascinating. I hope players as they go through this really consider folks like the clubhouse. Guys in terms of how much more difficult their job is or their teammates like Sean doolittle or like we talked last week with Jake. Diekmann You know I I've heard from teams. There's early pushback from some players about following the health and safety protocol, which meant I think for you and I because we live in the northeast in its now standard operating procedure. It's almost mind boggling to think that there would be some folks. It'd be pushing back on this stuff. Yeah Yeah. It's true I mean look. I know it's going to be it. It slows down the process of preparing for a season right because spring training batting groups going to be smaller If a guy wants to go into the hydrotherapy TUB, the cryotherapy job after a game or a workout. He's got to wait for the TUB to be drained and then cleaned between each. Each use so whereas you know you used to be able to get a dozen guys into those contraptions post game. That number's going to shrink the training room. You know where guys would stack themselves up and wait, and you take a corner here and get your stem You take corner here and where you're is that those scenes are not going to happen anymore. So I I mean for all those reasons I guess. There are guys that are holding out and saying you know this is.

Probably more than then you'd like to think that there are People like Picasso Leonardo Da Vinci. Mozart Tom Brady Dwayne Wade Michael Jordan. Willie Tomase all had great talent but they had something else they were never satisfied. They could never be satisfied. They were always always looking for the next level of greatness and when they reached that level then they were looking for the for the next the next level they tained and possess an insatiable insatiable diet for dating greater success.

Dwayne Wade came to Marquette not as highly recruited player. He was mid level whereas scholarships were offered to him and Tom watched him in a summer camp and decided that could see you the greatness that he had him and brought him his first year he played a little bit. Not a lot and Tom kept talking about way to this guy. Where do you see the finished product of this guy? And then the next year he played and then there's third years last year Marquette.

They put out there such such an advantage in this day and age. You don't have to play a true safety and then you get into those formations and then nickel and dime and do a lot of different formations out there. There's no question about it that When you have the guys that can cover the safeties that can cover? They got to be able to cover tight ends But if they could also right you know. Cover the backs if they can cover slot type receivers then It's a tremendous advantage that You don't have to commit another you.

You bring in three really talented offense. A Lyman Reese atteberry zags enter. Jeff Percy reese adversaries a six foot five two hundred eighty four pound off it's a line from Aurora Colorado Zach's enters a six six three hundred twenty three block out the sun. Size guy from North Andover Handover Massachusetts. And Jeff Percy very long and tall six seven to seventy five out of mission Viejo California three really talented offensive Lineman to add to what should be a really good deep group for you guys. Yeah we're we're we're we're you start really every one of them is Athletic every one of them is They're big they are tremendous Guys are all really smart to. I always thought that the offensive Lineman need to be book smart art end and Street smart so to speak Because they they have to know their assignments. Otherwise a quarterback are running back who get killed out there on the field field. These guys are are really really sharp. All really good. They're they're big big strong athletic guys and been a real pleasure watching them. RESEDA Berry for the first time I ever watched him on tape. His tape also had a at an end zone copy and He was playing pine tackle and Also had some earlier clips of implant center and it just hit me within five clip. This guy could someday be an NFL. Type Center used to looking at centers. The way he moves in the way the way he looked. So you know in in the back of my mind I I think that even though he was playing tackle in high school he's GonNa be center on a school visit. I asked his coach. Take what position do you think he could play in college. NBA's best position in football as a coach. You're going to think I'm crazy here but I really think he's going to be a center. I go I don't think you're crazy at all we are we are seeing the same EXAC- thing and and reese got the ability. He could be a tackle he could be a guard. But don't be surprised if if you don't see reese atteberry as a As a really good center here at the University of Michigan and Jeff Percy He is That tackle that you walks walks through the door and you got a tackle. That's tackle and when you look at a lot of the. NFL tackles when they were in high school. They weren't three hundred right and now some odd pounds. They were in the the two two seventies to eighties when they were in high school. And as Jeff Percy is and he had a tremendous tremendous tremendous senior year. He really Came onto the sea and I don't know what he's listed star wise but actually went from a three star. Four four-star halfway through the season jumped up a bunch of rankings. But he's a guy when you watch all of the top tackles in quotes across the country. this a guy that everybody wanted everybody. After he committed she started playing in the The fall everybody was trying to to get him him to visit get him yet. We're offering scholarships and things like that. And I mean this is where I mean a staunch guy. He was with with Michigan. All the way like every other the guy in the class was I mean even when they kind of blew up as so to speak in their in their senior season wasn't interested in going anywhere but Michigan. She can his Dad Jeff every time you know. He's a long way away. He's in California. Every time you start hearing all you got another offer. This is that coach.

The West Bloomfield team came to our seven hundred seven camp last year and and wanted really dominated in dominating donating fashion and Cornell we learn macari page Great competitors and super excited about those two youngsters and and really super excited about the program that they're coming from and positions of need you talk about the safety position Macari and and the inside backer position in for Cornell Wheeler. They're coming in with great opportunity and they're motivated to come in fast and hit the ground running. They have the ability in the licensed contribute. Early early coach. Let's continue looking at your class at twenty twenty from signing day the early signing period and go not defensive backfield where you picked up four defensive backs to instate a couple from the east coast as well but three Mercedes kind of I know when I have conversations about these guys. They all kind of talk about together but they are uniquely different players Jordan mirant. RJ moten macari page. But also. Andre says well four terrific athletic defensive backs guys added for this class a really tremendous Group Group of athletes competitors Very skilled players definitely macari page and Jordan Miranda true safeties safeties and then will you mo- hand is so good so athletic I mean He. He's guy that six one hundred and eighty nine. He could be he cute really athletic enough to be a corner safety also edge. Rusher like a viper you know. He's he's got that ability. So there's there's a lot of a lot of ways that William O.. Han can contribute to the football team. He runs he hits. He covers long and athletic can really good in all those areas. So you mentioned we'll Mohan. He's coming in an athlete. That's how he's listed. He's a viper slash defence. Back six one hundred eighty nine pounds out of Brooklyn. The New York The other day talking about here Jordan mirant six foot two hundred and thirteen pounds out of precipitate New Jersey. Bergen Catholic a big time program or that he came from Rj. Jay Moten Paula Malo. Yeah Yeah Yeah. He reminds me a lot of hemp. He's up to the hall of fame. This yeah and And then RJ moten is another example of a guy a six foot hundred ninety nine pounds. He's good in athletic enough to be a corner he really is And therefore he's going to be also could be a very good safety But I mean he's a strong strong powerful type of athletes as well and we've we've been with him and camps right here on campus and and Watch watch them play games and practices There's a sky's the limit kind of ability and talent and rock-solid in every way just like You know all four of those defensive backs that we just talked about And a lot of a lot of 'em in those names but yeah we can go through through each guy but Rj Mode could be a corner could be a safety could and it's strong enough and powerful enough It'd be a tremendous tackler as well and we go hand same type of ability same type of change of direction slithering ignace put a tremendous tremendous tackler at times. I mean he comes off the edge whether it's a corner blitzer just line up on the on the edge of the defense defense and in the edge of the offense and he is on the quarterback or the running back so fast and picture coming from the opposite side and they run away from them and he's he's tracking the play down and and eventually runs it down and you know macari pages Classic Safety in always great range range. Great Ball skills contract the ball and can make plays on the ball and and Jordan mirant same type of safety. The macari pages is a a true safety with great coverage ability and also has That Troy Paula Milo factor. You know where he's got the instincts and could safety blitz could come out could be anywhere. Could light up anywhere in the defense and it's exciting. This is An exciting riding group of defensive backs perimeter players that go again. We'll have the license ability to to be competitive factors very very early in their career and Andre Seldom Audrey Seattle Corner. I mean that's a sets a water. Yeah he's a he's a true corner and in very very very competitive. That's the thing that I that stuck out to me. Every time I've watched Andrei Seldom Compete whether as Belleville or the camps. You can talk about guys showing up at camps and some that have a lot of offers. Some that are committed They have a tendency to kind of just stand there and do interviews interviews with you IRA over there on the side through interviews show up to do the interview up to do the interviews and wearing flip flops. We flip visors sunglasses. Visors things like that. That is not Andrea. Seldom Audrey selden shows up at sound mind. Sound Body. Audie shows up at the Michigan camp or any camp He'll he'll get in a car or bus to go to camp. He's looking forward. He's looking to compete. He's looking look into Sh- to show what he can do. He's looking to get in press coverage in front of somebody and he'll take his shirt off. Just you know just a show that that's he's he's not he's a he's a physical type of guy and that shows up when he tackles. I mean this is not a corner. That's just out there to cover people. He'll go tackle it. It sounds to me as I listen. Listen to this. I'm not aware of a lot of these players. Sounds if you're coming to Michigan Camp and you WanNa you WanNa impress the coaches bring. Your cleats compete yes. One other Trivia question here Troy Powell his father in law. Are you familiar with who his father-in-law's I am not Mike.

Pop is distinctly South Korean. It has become way way larger at that. The board group BTS tours the world girl groups like Black Pink performed a sold out crowds in the US and Japan and Europe and everywhere in between but this morning the industry is facing a question. Why are so many K pop stars dying? This came on the scene because for the second time and barely a month a young singer. A Mega Star in the industry was found dead in her home. It's GonNa Jeff Benjamin. He writes about K pop for billboard. He's actually in Seoul South Korea right now and Jeff. This young woman's name is Goo Hara. So how did she die. And how big is this in a place like South Korea. How I mean right now? We're kind of waiting for the official official news when it comes to the police investigations of her death but earlier this year. Actually she had attempted. I did too to take her own life and kind of seemed like she was getting help and was speaking out about getting herself healthier but But yeah unfortunately you. This is yet another death in the K pop industry and it feels like way too soon especially when it comes to their big stars like this Goo Hara was Had over ten years in the industry was a member her girl group Co Aura. Hara was able to successfully transition her career career. Not only as a sort of standout member of car but into her own solo work which is also say you know when you become a big celebrity. Of course you're the subject of a lot of I've discussion a lot of online commenters a lot of headlines But the South Korean society and particularly with K pop I think it goes a little harsher. It's a bit more intense questioning car especially towards the end of their career career. Where almost like a bit of a punching bag? When it came to the K pop industry there was this one kind of controversial radio appearance that they made and I say controversial definitely with air quotes because they spoke about very normal things in K pop? It's very scandalous to be dating. They didn't WanNa talk about dating. They kind of poked fun at themselves but also at the and this sort of radio appearance that look. It's normal by any other standards. deathly became a huge point of controversy for the group. was definitely. I think kind of contributed to the end of car. What I realized was that an entertainer isn't only about singing dancing rapping like you have to be able to be able to entertain people you have to be able to speak fluently able to be funny? It's definitely sort of representative of this sort of extreme sort of intense bullying culture that happens in South Korea and in Cape and with Google harsh apparently had a boyfriend and there was a physical altercation between them. He reportedly threatened to leak explicit images of her. I I bring this up. Because he does speak to this perception that there's a disproportionate amount of pressure in that world right. I mean this is Cape facing a problem here right I. It's definitely a legitimate question. You know we have this death right here. We have Sali's death which was just a month ago that seemingly was also ruled a suicide died in two thousand seventeen. We lost boy band member Chung Hyun from boy band Chinese who had a very similar case and the way that he passed while while it seems you know disproportionately linked to Cape. I do think this sort of speaks to a larger reflection of South Korean society Young people students definitely have a humongous amount of stress and pressure put on themselves and it actually is the country that that is consistently one of the highest death by suicide rates in the world. It's actually the second highest among developed nations and experts kind of continue. Can you to point out. The lack of resources for people not only celebrities but just any people who are struggling with mental. How than because it is still a taboo topic will then? Is there anything to be done. That are solutions being floated either in this industry or more. Broadly the thing to kind hunter remember about K.. Pop is that it's almost a bit almost like the movie studios back in the day. The Hollywood movie studios is that when sort of artists decide decide to that they wanNA pursue this this life they join a company like SMS entertainment known for his intense training program. Starting as early as ten years years. Old Houses feeds them. Close them and takes care of them that includes learning foreign languages and public speech teaching communication skills. I'm personally seeing someone who's been watching the industry for a while. I'm seeing certain record. Labels are kind of being open to starting to have suicide prevention classes sexual health classes that gets put into the artists training in addition to the singing the dancing the act team. And that's definitely kind out of getting a big thumbs up big applause from international fans and again still no official word on this particular death but like you said certainly not the first in his hyper structured hyper pressurized just Environment Jeff. Benjamin Covering Cape in Seoul. Thanks so much of course.

"When president trump was candidate trump a big part of his candidacy was that he was a billionaire right and not just the Arab businessman? I know how to run things messaging but also I'm literally a billionaire like I don't need your money to do this. I will have in my race more than one hundred million dollars. Put My money meaning. I'm not taking all of this big money from all of these different corporations like she didn't spend like a billionaire. You're not like he suggested that I instead. He ran a shoestring campaign saying lots of outrageous things early on so you get what they call free media bringing drugs. They bring being in crime their rapists and then he won the nomination and that's when he did start taking donations. The Republican Party SUPERPAC started spending big on his his behalf by Election Day. Donald trump it spent sixty six million dollars of his own money. Eleven million that actually went back into his own company since his campaign had to pay for office space an airplane so he spent a lot. My point is a self funded campaign this was not. We've never really seen would. Billionaire is capable of in a bid for president when money is actually no object. Well this weekend that all changed this morning former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg announcing he's in the race for president. We've learned that. He spent at least thirty eight million dollars in the first week. Probably a lot more than that. Michael Bloomberg former mayor and the ninth richest person on earth according to Forbes is now officially a Democrat running for president. So let's go to the person who was the first to tell us Bloomberg a serious about this. Rick Klein is ABC's Political Director. So Rick what does this do to the race. Brad get ready for the superlatives because already Michael Bloomberg is on track to spend in the first week More than any presidential candidate in the history of presidential politics in any week of up to including the general election. I mean if he's going to drop more than thirty million dollars in the first week alone think about the pace that that's what it says. Because he's worth north of fifty a billion dollars he could spend a billion dollars in this campaign we're told and it challenges some of the basic assumptions of the campaign. One this is about retail politics and loving voters to get to know are you in grassroots support and to about the early voting states because he is skipping the first four states and banking everything on Super Tuesday. What does that look like than that? Just looked like advertisement has been after advertisement. How does that play well? He's going to be everywhere on TV screens and nowhere in terms of campaigning. He's still hasn't done a public event and we don't know that he's got any plans for the next couple of days at some point he'll do something. But in the meantime almost anywhere you live in the United States. You'll have a good chance of seeing Michael Bloomberg on your TV set. Mike Bloomberg started as a middle class. Kid would work. His is way through college and build a business from a single room to a global entity creating tens of thousands of good paying jobs along the way he's going to be spending with his over the minute along. TV Ad very bio heavy taking the fight to Donald Trump. Now he sees different kind of menace coming from Washington. So there's no stopping here. It's about to that era war. It's about that kind of wholesale campaigning in a very retail type of business and no one is really tried to say that there have been so funders before four people that spend their own money. People spend gobs of cash throughout but to rely heavily on the power of paid media it just has not been an assumption that's been tested but way not even taking donations rick like if somebody wants to send him ten dollars is he even taking money from mere mortals or what he says no but if you buy a Bloomberg for president piece of merchandise technically actually you'll go down as a donor that actually could mean something because the Democratic National Committee said its entire apparatus around the debates on the premise that people would demonstrate grassroots support in a very proud to tell you that our campaign just recently received a one millionth individual contributions so for example. You need two hundred thousand donors owners to get a ticket to the December to beat. You also need polling in the early states or Ashley. Michael Bloomberg has neither of those things but if he does want to qualify for debates starting in two thousand twenty depending on whether the Democrats change the rules going forward he will have to demonstrate some sort of grasps. Put a button on your webpage if that means you're not going to be on the debate bates stage. It's a very strange system and it tells you how fundamentally he is. Changing the game from Washington on Kevin Cirilli welcome to balance power where the world of politics meets the world of business already had to make some changes over at Bloomberg media. Bloomberg News is announced. They're not going to do any investigations into the Michael Bloomberg or any of if the Democrats running that's a major change for a very high profile news organization. There's another think you're Brad. which is that billionaires dirty word? These days among Democrats if if you make it big I mean really big. I mean one tenth of one percent big pitch etch in two cents so everybody else gets a chance to make it in this context right now. Being rich is not considered as early a good thing in two thousand nine hundred and Democratic Party. Neither is being a white guy in his seventies. And and so there's so many parts of of Michael Bloomberg that could run into just the stubborn realities of what the Democratic primary unrealistic. So what is the pitch. Rick I mean I guess we should treat them like any other candidate for this question. At least what is his platform for running for president that he can be trump. I'm a New Yorker worker and I know a con when I see one bottom line take another billionaire to beat one from New York. Trump promised to run our nation like he ran his business too. which which is famously said? God help us. He's running heavily on his own biography. I his entrepreneurial streak all of that is around the general election. He is very much trying to position himself. Right now as a candidate to take on Donald trump he'd like to look past this primary altogether and yet there is a primary he is running in it and he's got to get his poll numbers up quickly if he wants to be a player in reclined. Thanks so much for breaking it down. Thank you breath decks start here. It's one of the most coveted gigs in the world. So why are so many K pop. Idols dying.

"We spent a lot of last week wrapping up impeachment Richmond hearing so guess what you have a day off no impeachment. Today because as those hearings were happening there was another standoff ramping up at the White House and this weekend it reached a fever lever pitch this was not a conflict between Republicans and Democrats. It was a conflict between president trump. The commander in chief and his subordinates at the navy it all revolved around a case. Ace involving alleged war crimes and what should be done with the men and women who break rules in our military there was development every few hours last night until finally this ended dude with the head of the navy being effectively fired. So let's take you straight to. ABC's Elizabeth mcglaughlin who covers the Pentagon NBC. And Elizabeth. Can you walk me through this. Yes Brad we're going to have to go back in time here to get. Everyone caught up. But I want you to go back all the way to twenty seventeen navy seal who has pleaded not guilty to war crimes including murder. This is a Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher and he is accused of killing a wounded isis captive while on deployment to Iraq in his arraignment today. Okay he pleaded not guilty to allegations including plunging his personal hunting knife into this teenage isis. Combatant in the neck and body huge victory theory huge weight of the gallaghers ultimately he's acquitted of that charge but he is sentenced to forms of time served and a reduction in rank. Because has he posted a photo with the corpse during that deployment fifteen weeks in jail at the Brig Miramar and this is unfathomable tried to frame me as a criminal from the get-go and then president trump weighs in. He had long been a big supporter of Gallagher and so earlier this month. He said that he was going to restore gallagher's rank to e seven meaning. He would have higher pay a higher rank when he retired just days. After Gallagher was granted clemency the navy started started a process that could lead to gallagher being kicked out of the seals. So what we learned than last week was that the case wasn't over the Navy had decided that they wanted. I'm to undergo what they call a Trident Review Board. This is basically a jury of Gallagher's peers who would decide if he could keep the Trident Pin. That's what's it's worn on your uniform and it basically the symbol that you're part of the navy seal community so undergoing that China Review Board is not actually to abnormal. It's it's pretty common. If a seal has independent termine to maybe have misbehaved with drug or alcohol abuser or another similar breach of trust. What is it normal is that the president decided to wagon again on this case last athlete? And so this is where my ears perked up last week but because president trump says hey this guy should still retain his rank. Forget this review board and I get that that was surprising that people but Elizabeth he is the commander in chief right so I think that once he gives that order as long as that's legal like that's what goes right. Well not exactly the president did tweet. He said the navy will not be taking away the trident pin in a stunning public reversal. tweeting this case was handled very badly from the beginning inning. Get back to business. Problem here is tweets aren't policy. I need formal order to track so the Navy told us last week that they we're going to pause the proceedings until they awaited further guidance from the White House. But that didn't happen now. What happens over the weekend as we learned that the White House had I decided to let the Review Board go ahead? We don't know exactly what happened there but this story gets even crazier so you had the White House saying we you want this thing to happen. The Navy contradicts them in public. And says actually no this is happening. The White House says okay but like Elizabeth was as accurate to call it a standoff. I mean I think that's how we thought that this could end that. This Train Review Board Decides Gallagher's faith and that's the end of it but as it turns out this story ends with the Secretary Return of the Navy essentially getting fired out of the breaking news tonight in a major shakeup at the Pentagon and the reasoning behind that. And how it all comes to be is really different depending nine Who you're listening to Secretary of Defense Mark expert saying in a statement? I have determined that Secretary Spencer. No longer has my confidence to continue in his position. So he listened to Defense Secretary Esper- this all happened because the secretary of the navy was going behind his back. He said he actually really went to the White House and was trying to cut a deal in which gallagher would get to retire as a navy seal and keep his pin and in that letter S. for says that he lost face in his navy secretary. Now then we get the resignation letter from the Navy secretary. Maybe Secretary Richard Spencer they just issued a statement saying he quote cannot in good conscience obey in order he believes violates his sacred in his letter it would make it sound like he was his Standing up for the navy's right to have this review board Go underway. He was standing up for good order discipline. He said that that was quote would enabled our victory victory against foreign tyranny. Time again either way. He lost his job. But so I mean as we begin the week. Elizabeth seems hugely significant right that the president of the United States would call for something. The head of the Navy is saying what the president's demanding is immoral endanger. SME What does it say about discipline right now in the armed forces. I mean you're right either way here. President trump got his way to be great fighters and then when they fight sometimes they get really treated very unfairly. He liked to interview and these he's war-crimes cases. This wasn't the only one in his point of view is that these have been unfair proceedings against these top military service members who are are in difficult environments there in the fog of war and then they come home and get punished the reverse side of that in in the side that you hear argued by defense officials is that you have to have this military justice system and that these people have to be held to a very very high ethical standard so to have the commander in chief going this far hard down. The chain of command to interfere in these types of cases is pretty rare But I have to tell you. The real kicker in this story is what we learned from Gallagher's lawyer late last night he actually told. ABC News. That gallagher was prepared to give back his trident pen. He was prepared to just give it up up. Felt that it hit become too partisan it was for the good of the country and yet in defense secretary aspirins letter. He says he's decided to let gallagher. Keep that pen. And so it does appear at this point that gallagher will retire in about a week and he will be a navy seal. Wow so at the end of the day is this morning. At least the guy accused after the war crimes still has his job. Secretary of the Navy does not Elizabeth McLaughlin covering the Pentagon thanks so much.
