Tagovailoa, Dolphins rout Texans 30-15 for 5th straight win

"To a tongue by loa completed 22 of 36 passes for 299 yards and a touchdown as the dolphins beat the Texans 30 to 15. I'm not able to have recognition or any of that without everyone doing their jobs doing their assignments. If a team has success, that's what brings individual success for anyone on any team. The dolphins led 30 to nothing at halftime as they improved to 8 and three on the season. Tyree kill caught 6 passes for 85 yards while Jalen waddle finished with 5 catches for 85 yards. The law straps the Texans to one 9 and one. I'm Adam splain.

Bills, Vikings and Cowboys score Thanksgiving wins.

"AP sports, I'm Mike Reeves, it was a busy Thanksgiving Day in the NFL with three games on the schedule, the bills were in Detroit to meet the Lions, correspondent Denny cap, was there and has this report. Tyler bass boots a 45 yard field goal with two seconds left as the bills hang on to beat the Lions 28 25 on Thanksgiving Day, passes heroics from 8 necessary after he missed an extra point late in the fourth quarter, which allowed Lions kicker Michael batchley to sign the game on a 51 yarder with 23 seconds left. Sometimes you do everything that you write and sometimes you just get unlucky. We got unlucky, but we have a great group of guys that support me and have my back and I was able to reset and focus on the next big. Josh Allen put bounced into position to win the game, orchestrating a 48 yard drive spurred by a 36 yard pass the Stefan Diggs. Bob Stephens was on hand to watch the cowboys host the Giants. The Dallas Cowboys rallied to defeat the New York Giants 28 20 on Thanksgiving, overcoming a 13 7 deficit with 21 unanswered points in the second half. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy says the cowboys time of possession keyed the win. Excellent division win game we had to have and I love the fire team and really what tried to break their method. And one thing I'm talking about is controlling the ball was a big focus for us today. That Prescott threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns the Dalton Schultz, CD lamb caught 6 for one O 6, while Daniel Jones threw for two 28 in a touchdown for the Giants. In Minnesota Kirk Cousins finds Adam Thielen in the end zone with 9 34 left to give the Vikings a 33 26 win over the Patriots, it was cousins third scoring strike of the game, just a phenomenal catch by him. I thought that the way he's able to catch that football, keep his feet in bounds. It just says a lot about his ability. One of the things he does really well is his body control and he's just overall athleticism and he showed it there. A great play by him. In college football, Mississippi state gets passed almost 24 22 in college troops in top 5 action number one North Carolina and number three Kansas are winners. I'm Mike Reeves, AP sports.

The Art of Retaliation

"I want to talk about an important principle in politics and it is the art of retaliation, the art of retaliation. Now, this principle came to my mind when Kevin McCarthy said recently, I, Kevin McCarthy, I'm going to remove Eric swalwell, Adam Schiff, and Ilhan Omar from their House committees. Now, we should note that this is a kind of an unprecedented, well, actually, no, it is a precedented step. But it is an unusual step because the general modus operandi, the way of doing business in the Congress is this. The majority party controls the committees. They appoint the chairman of the committees and the committees, by the way, are the mechanism through which legislation passes. Committee is a very important a judiciary committee, the ways and means committee and so on. And the majority party has the majority of members on the committee, but the minority party, in this case, the Democrats in the House would have the right to appoint their own members. But the Democrats decided last time around, to violate this kind of code of etiquette, if you will, and throw a prominent Republicans, notably Marjorie Taylor Greene, offer committee. Oh, she's an extremist. So extremist or not, the point is she's not being named by your side. She was being named by the Republican side. And the fact that the Democrats said, well, we have the power to do it, so we're gonna do it. It was very important and it is very important for Republicans to be like, well, you know what? Two can play at this game.

There Are Alternatives to Twitter

"So Twitter's back up and running, you can, I guess, feel free to say what you want now. And a lot of people I've seen a lot of friends who lost their accounts, they have been restored. That's all good, but will it matter? Again, there are other alternatives out there. I'm on true social as well, parlor, of course, has come about and had its own set of challenges. There's locals as well. I encourage you, by the way, you can follow me on locals at Trish Regan locals dot com, where they really are about promoting this freedom of speech within a decent way, right? I mean, we're not talking total craziness, but the ability at least to have an opinion. And in this environment, it's gotten hard. If I tell you to consecutive quarters of negative growth for our economy, means a recession, then somehow now I'm questioned by social media platforms for false information. I mean, hey, look, no recession is the same. But it used to be the definition of a recession. Now you can't say it anymore because Joe Biden doesn't want us to. I mean, that's scary stuff, folks, all right? And either side of the aisle. Remember that? Because it can just as easily be the Democrats that they're going after next. So even if Democrats are going after conservatives and all you can't say it's a recession that could so easily flip and that's the scary part about all of that. Isn't it? But lots of changes coming. I think January is going to prove to be a very interesting month. Don't you think? Don't you think I want to tell you about Kevin McCarthy? But before I do, did you see who's crawling around here? Right here on my lap. This is fluffy. If you haven't met fluffy, this is indeed him. He is the sweetest little thing and so important to me. I love this dog so much and it's the reason why I'm excited to tell you about a wonderful supplement that I found for him created by a former army veteran, an army veteran, a former army ranger named doctor Dennis black, and doctor black is naturopathic doctor, has created this supplement because he loves donks too and he's got a couple of them a little bit bigger than you fluffy, a little bit, but fluffy's just a little tiny Maltese. I encourage you if you're listening on Apple iTunes, go check out my YouTube channel or my rumble channel so you can see this guy in the flesh, but I love him. He goes a lot of places with me. And it's very important part of my life. And so I want to make sure that he is getting the proper nutrients. So this is why I have doctor Dennis black supplement for fluffy that I just add, I sprinkle onto his food every single day, because then I know he's getting the digestive enzymes. He's getting the minerals. He's getting the probiotics. All the things that he needs to have a long and healthy, happy life. Well, hopefully I will. A little bit responsible for some of that happiness, right, buddy. Anyway, I encourage you to check it out. Doctor Dennis black has a wonderful offer for free trial bag for Friends of mine, Friends of this show fans of this show. I'm going to include this link below in the show notes. But go to rough greens dot com today. Are you FF green's dot com today? Are you FF greens dot com today? Get your free trial back. It's really worth it. This is a wonderful supplement. Your dog will thank you. I promise. And your dog will love it. I mean, I'd be shocked. If it was any other way, because I know how much this guy I know how much he loves it, so I'm pretty sure your dog will as well. Anyway, back to what's happening there in Washington, D.C., as I keep him right here on my lap, I might as well, right? These little animals, they're pretty special. They're pretty special. Anyway, you've got chemical McCarthy planning some big changes. Now that he's going to be Speaker of the House. And it looks like Adam Schiff. And perhaps some of these others, like AOC, they're on the skids when it comes to the house Intel committee. As they should be, I mean, when you think about some of the things that have been done, who's the other one, the one that had the friendship with the lovely young woman. Fang fang, was it? From China, that's kind of something I wish I could forget. Anyway, we can't. I would argue rather compromise position there because she is alleged to have been a Chinese spy. Kind of strange to him to have him on the foreign affairs community here in the Intel committee. So I think that you're going to see a big revamp coming of some of these committees where there are sensitive positions and you have people that maybe don't like Israel or have had questionable relationships with people like fang thing. Are going to come into question and as they should. And that's going to result in some changes. Look, I think we need more responsibility in Washington. I really do. I think that people are shooting off their mouse in ways that are unbecoming, frankly, to themselves, and to the nation. And we've got to remember, in fact, who our allies are, one of which, of course, major ally, being Israel. So there's an important some important things that are going to be happening. And I'd say, in that sense, very good things that are going to be happening. But they're not going to go down without a fight. So gear up, be ready. In the meantime, let's all look forward to some Thanksgiving Thanksgiving which, by the way, we're going to talk about this tomorrow. Is suddenly super, super pricey. Have you seen the price said the turkey dinner this year? We'll talk about it. Great to have you here. Make sure you go to Trish Intel dot com.

Jennifer Horn: 'Mitch McConnell Gamed All of Us'

"So many problems right now with our party and so much of it comes from leadership. Today, I've been saying that Mitch McConnell game to all of us. I don't think he really cared about winning the majority in the Senate. He let Blake masters hang. He let Adam laxalt hang. He had no intention of helping Herschel Walker. He is not doing that. He allowed them to be outspent, Democrats at fought. Yes, they had to spend a lot of money, but they maintained those seats because Mitch McConnell failed, not because Donald Trump failed. What I don't and I also think we need a new leader of the R and C, I'd love to see. Someone like a Lee's Eldon come in, who knows how to identify issues who knows how to talk to people and who knows how to fight. Those would be great changes to the Republican Party. I am disappointed and I do hear what you're saying and I don't necessarily disagree because gosh, the future we have no guarantees. So if you tell Ron DeSantis, hey, you can run in four years. You can run again in 2028. These are things that we can't guarantee someone, but I do think if they broke her to deal and Trump gets in and in four years or after Ron DeSantis is done as governor of Florida, he gets appointed as Secretary of State or some high level position within the Trump administration, he's beautifully appointed to run his own very successful race right now. Trump knows where all the bodies are buried and he's already started the work. It's up to America to let him finish that.

The Fall of FTX

"There was some drama on Twitter over the weekend. So FTX CEO Sam beckman free took to Twitter this morning to clear something up. He said that a competitor is trying to attack the company with rumors. He then says in the same tweet, FTX is fine, assets are fine. Over the weekend, speculation rose about the solvency of FTX. This came after I coined us report revealed Alameda research is balance sheet is full of FTX native token FTT. The balance sheet showed 2.66 billion of unlocked FTT and 292 million of locked FTT, Alameda research is of course sandbank and freed's trading arm. So binance CEO CZ got in on the actions. He said that he would be liquidating the exchanges FTT tokens on its books and there was a little bit of back and forth with Alameda CEO Adam. I'm going to kick this off to you first. I was gone for a week and what a story to come back to, maybe you could talk us through what is going on here. Yeah, I think it's all fun and games until somebody starts trash talking your company token, right? That's really kind of what I see with all of this stuff. FTX and binance are two of the biggest, primarily non U.S. giant exchanges that are out there. They compete in lots of ways, but the market is still new enough that they don't really have to cannibalize each other's markets. In order to succeed and continue to grow each of their respective businesses, we're in a blue ocean moment still for kind of the world of the largest side of the crypto exchanges, not really a red ocean where they need to be aggressively going after people who are trading on one or the other in order to continue to grow. Now, that being said, it still is a bear market. And there is still significant strategy that goes into both the kind of the optics of the thing, and also just the investing strategy of the thing. Binance has not made a lot of the big flashy moves that many of its competitors, including FTX has, it didn't participate in any of the kind of stadium stuff. They didn't do Super Bowl ads. So from a risk management standpoint, their may just be some incompatibilities here. And they may be thinking, hey, it's better to deploy these resources in other ways rather than continue to support and bet on a competitor.

Kellyanne Conway: We Need More Unity in the Republican Party

"I like what Kellyanne Conway said to Jesse waters last night on Fox News. I'm glad both men. Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are in the Republican Party and have records of accomplishment that people can point to and want to emulate in their own states and people who want to run for office because they're inspired by candidates by leaders like them who don't back down who get things done who work with a volume and a velocity. I would love to see the two of them up on the stage in Georgia with I don't know a throw Brian Kemp and Mike Pence in there too. Jesse, I think we need more unity unity and less devices than the Republican Party. Because guess what? We've got the best policies and messages. We don't have unity right now. The Democrats have no good policies and no aspirational hopeful forward looking messages, but they showed a lot of unity last week, ginning up their base and it paid off in some of these elections. She's so right. Gosh, darn it. She's so good. She is as smart as it gets. And we need more unity right now. We got to figure out a way, especially now on behalf of Herschel Walker, looks like it could very well all boil down to Georgia again, although I like Adam laxalt in Nevada, I like Blake masters chance. Chances in Arizona, who knows, we could get all of them.

"We will hold our breath. I'm ready. Adam, what's the worst advice you've ever gotten? It's all who you know. Not true. Let me say this over and over again. I hear people say it all the time. Not true. I knew no one when I started doing what I was doing. I knew no one that when I got into Saturday Night Live. No one. I auditioned cold for second city. It allows people not to focus on doing the work on sharpening their skills. Trust me, these studios and networks want to make lots of money. If you get really good at what you do and put it out there in any way, shape or form, they will find you fast, especially these days. Maybe it's all who you know might have worked 50 years ago before the Internet and all this stuff. But it's bad advice. Well, I think part of the reason that it's bad advice is that who you know depends on what you create. And what skills you bring to the table, right? So your network is a function of originally the comedy that you generated, right? Even a better way of saying it, if you're like, oh, I'm all about networking. You're going to hang out with a bunch of other actors, writers, directors, painters, whatever they are, or even psychologists or whatever your up for. And they're all going to be in a networking and who you know, and then all of a sudden who you know are a bunch of other people worried about who they know. And then boom, you've got the U.S. federal government. Speaking of which, I watched your new documentary. God forbid. That entire story could be powered by somebody's belief. This might be Giancarlo, at least a caricature of him, that it was all about who you know. And that if he could only get in the good graces of Falwell, that great things might happen. What was it that drew you to that story and what was your big takeaway from it? That's a really good point. The reason I really loved it is I thought it took a tremendous amount of courage for Giancarlo to tell that story. Because you see it just all over the place in today's world. These individuals, these companies just roll over people. And they just trust that you're not going to have the guts to speak up, you're too embarrassed to speak up. They'll crush you if you speak up. So, you know, this guy really got chewed up. He really stepped into a very dark, twisted upside down world. And in the end, the Falwell's were very confident that he was going to keep his mouth shut and go away. And they really had that power over him. We live in kind of NDA nation. I'm convinced if you eliminated the NDA, this entire country would get its act together in about three months.

"Want to ask you a little bit about your comedy career and then come back to the newer drama work. You've obviously had an extraordinary trajectory. I think about founding the upright citizens brigade. I think about becoming head writer on SNL, where you recruited Tina Fey, I would love to hear a little bit about what that series of experiences taught you about humor that you didn't know instinctively. I think the biggest lesson because I started doing comedy at a little comedy radio station in college and then I was doing stand up comedy in the 80s when there was that stand up comedy boom and it really exploded. That's like what Seinfeld came out of Jay Leno and on and on dozens of great comics. And I remember doing stand up when I was in college and you know I would get laughs and I made a little bit of money. I wasn't great. It wasn't like a headliner, but I would MC occasionally middle. By the end, I did not like my act. And so when I went to Chicago to do long form improvisation, that was where del close started saying, no, no, you don't play down to the audience. You play up to them. They're way smarter than you think they are. And he kind of would tell us that, but then in classes, he would make you do it. He would say, is that the smartest thing you could come up with? There? Is that the most creative choice? And he kind of drills it in you, and then we started doing it, and it worked. And we were like, holy crap. He's right. And you know, his point wasn't that everything must be erudite and dry. His point was always be striving to make the most original creative choice. So even if you're playing an incredibly stupid character like Homer Simpson, well, what's great about Homer Simpson is they write him in a regional genius ways even though he's stupid. So that's what Dell was saying like always be pushing one step beyond. And that kind of became the foundation of everything we did. And the other thing he always pushed was like, you know, even if it's silly, like, your stuff's going to play better if you aim for art and you miss you're going to end up with comedy, but if you aim for comedy and you miss, you get junk. So he's like, always trying to have something else you're going for. So even as silly as like anchorman in Talladega nights, we always had something else going on with those movies, will and I would talk about it. We called it our secret behind the movie. And it really gave a lot of stakes and it really gave a kind of energy to this stuff. We're doing. So that was a big change for me. It's sort of introduced the idea of like, oh yeah, comedy has a history of being, you know, theater, comedy has a history of stand up comics really causing trouble and saying things that were hard for people to handle. He gave it the right dose of importance. It didn't make it overly important. He just reminded you like you're here to do this. That right away set you apart, you now have a responsibility to uphold what you're doing. And I like that he kind of put that responsibility on us. That is a good segue to a couple of things I wanted to ask you to lightning round.

"No roar of support. Only along cold silence. I've never seen less enthusiasm for a great idea in my life. We wouldn't matter with you guys. A young man spoke up first. Well, it's like be completely honest. It's to be selfish about it. It would probably have hurt our chances of being right here in this room. Because I'm old for my grade, I do all my standardized test scores, maybe if they readjusted, and I would be more in the media. He was a 22 year old senior in college. So selfishly, I would say, no, it's not a good idea. From a societal standpoint, perhaps. So you're being honest. I'm being honest, yeah. It's like saying legacy admissions or something like that. My father went to Penn and my mother went to Penn. Oh, you're drowning in it. Exactly. I'm drowning. If we get rid of this, but I'm just gonna be honest. It's fantastic. Who else wants to then Matteo raises his hand? He is an 18 on his sticker. An age privilege advantage of a year and a half. And I think that's a poor idea because it assumes that everyone who is older is like always gonna be smarter. No one who's download is always going to be less smart. I've seen some pretty old people do some terrible things. No, no, no. Matteo, that's not what it does. Well, it's neutral. It just adjusts for the age gradient. But I want my score to be my score. But wait, wait, I want to, can I just you said you want your score to be your score? Yeah. But why is an adjusted score, a score that accounts for your degree of maturity, somehow less characteristic of who you are than an unadjusted score? I would have thought the opposite. A score that doesn't include information on your level of maturity would seem to be more artificial than one that does. I don't know. I guess I would want to look at the algorithm before I made an actual judgment because I'd be surprised if I was okay with everything theoretically that everything that the algorithm would say. The students stood up one by one using their prodigious powers of analysis and imagination to come up with one objection after another. Why do you think you guys are so hostile to attempts to remedy the situation? My fear with algorithm is that it could be gained, so if this were implemented, where we know that if you're younger, you say a hundred point bump in the SAT or a few more favorably throughout your whole educational career, then we're probably sending our kids off to kindergarten at four. Or we're planning whenever we have our kids looking at whatever the cutoff date is for kindergarten. You know, in September maybe and saying, all right, we're going to reproduce 9 months before that. In December or January. It's the current system that's being gamed. We're responding to the gaming. Are we not? Yeah, so I guess the fear is that the algorithm could be regained and yes, exactly. I put my hand on the table to steady myself. My head was spinning. These were the children of outliers. Children raised according to the rules of a game I kind of helped set in motion. And now, the consensus among 75 elderly ivy leaguers was that the system should remain rigged in favor of the elderly. The Apple cart must remain upright, with the shiniest and oldest apples on the top. Now, do I blame them? No, I don't. This is what happens when we give up on fairness as an essential principle. All that remains is cynicism. The students do not see the point of changing the system because their parents did not see the point of changing the system. And their parents didn't see the point because the schools didn't see the point. And the schools for good to see can't even rise from the slumber of their indifference to see that it makes no sense to give everyone an assessment test on the same day. We gain the things that we've given up on. I tried my best in outliers, but I subtitled the book the story of success, and if I learned anything from that afternoon a pen, it's that we want to think about success as a word to describe ourselves. Our own progress. But it's not really people who are successful. It's the systems around us. Great students and great hockey players come from great teams and great classrooms. And if you want to judge the success of those teams in classrooms, start by looking at their composition. Like, when was everyone born? And if we can't get that one right, God help us with everything else. All right. Thank you guys. I hope this has all been fun. I hope this makes you feel free to wear your numbers for the balance of the school year. If any of you.

"Up? But we've seen large percentages. We certainly seen big changes in ranks. So if we we've got cases for events where someone who is outside, let's say, the top 20, suddenly was in the top three. I read your paper and the first thought I had was, oh wow. This belongs in the classroom. Right? When you identify who gets into special gifted and talented program. So when you decide who just isn't smart enough or when you look at who you discourage and who you encourage, you've got to be making the same mistake, right? Yeah, I think so. I think the cautionary bit that we have to remember is it's that old question of, yeah, but how far do we go? So if we're going to factor if we are going to factor relative agent in education or biological development in education adjustments, shouldn't we be factoring in other things that we know are influential? Absolutely. Why wouldn't we? Well, exactly. Why wouldn't we? If we've developed a better way of identifying talent, why wouldn't we want to use it everywhere? Back at Wharton, I climbed up on my soapbox. I talked about how Matt caps had freed swimmers from the tyranny of birthdays. Communicated my enthusiasm for bringing the Australian revolution to the shores of the United States. So in Australia, they started to do this. 11 year olds are all swimming to a hundred meter freestyle. We got 12 kids. We have, you know, an order of finish. Then they run the times through an algorithm and have a new one. Now, would you feel comfortable with all of your, if you go back to your K through 12 experiences, would you feel comfortable if they ran all of your test scores through an age correction algorithm? Around the room, I saw young people have promise. Focused, eager. They would be my disciples. I was so full of excitement. I put the question to a vote. Yes or no? You do a shorthand.

"Her 22nd birthday. Oh, you were ten oh, a ten in the back. Oh, another ten emerges. We've got the 12. We got these 12s, and we got some tens. Take a look. This is bananas. This is as bad as the Canadian national junior hockey team. In our sample of students, from one of the world's most selective universities, there were no young seniors. None. Not even close. There was no one at all who had been born in 2001, which is the year you would expect most seniors to be born in. At one point, a student started talking about her experience in a gifted and talented program. So I asked for a show of hands. Do you mind me asking, how many of you guys were in gifted and talented programs? Wow. Basically all of you. Which makes sense, right? These were a group of relatively old students, and being relatively older makes it more likely to get into a gifted and talented program. And getting into a gifted and talented program makes it more likely to get into a school like pen, which is why a group of seniors that day at Wharton were all really old. What begins as arbitrary advantage hardens into privilege. A simple fact about their own success that our students still hadn't figured out. I'm going to give you another clue guys. The particular dimension of privilege we're interested in measuring, I'm going to say with a great deal of certainty is, in this room, the most significant form of privilege or lack of it that you would have experienced as students. At this point, I've pulled out all the stops, trying to help them. I've had people with the highest numbers stand up. At one point, I made everyone with a number over 20. Get up from their seats and line up against the wall. They were still guessing, but it was like they were throwing darts with a blindfold on. There were pretty clear demographic similarity at the top and in the spectrum. Racially was the most obvious in my eyes. Yeah. But also just in general that there were very few at the low end of the spectrum. Yeah. It was also noteworthy. How do you feel about being in the higher number group as opposed to the lower number group? I mean, it's just a fact. Like it is. I would say I'm coming into it. I'm aware of my privilege. As a white woman, but I think it's about what you do with that privilege that's important. And then, after 40 minutes of floundering in the shallow end of the revisionist history, research pool. A group of students in the front row. Put their heads together and then raise their hands. We have a hypothesis. That's Adam. Everyone in this front row group had the highest privilege score we handed out. 24 plus. Of course they figured it out first. They were the oldest students in the class. Next to Adam was Joseph. He was wearing a suit and a tie. Yeah. Yeah, we have a hypothesis, so 24 plus is that a significant factor here. Is age, our absolute age. Yes. Like how old are you? He goes, we're all a bunch of old seniors over here. Older than usual. Eureka. Phase one of the experiment was over. Now, phase two. Because I intended to ask them if they wanted to do something about their arbitrary privilege. In Australia, they've invented something called maturity based corrective adjustment procedures. Madcaps, as it's known, for provisional use in the sport of swimming. I will confess that I am madly in love with this idea. It turns out that if you take a bunch of measurements of kids and plug them into an equation, you can estimate their physical maturity quite accurately. So you don't have to rely on chronological age to assess someone's level of development, you can do one better and measure maturity directly. So what these equations do is they factor in indices like height, weight, chronological age, and sitting height, and they use those factors to then estimate how far away a particular individual is from that point of peak growth. That's Stephen cobbly, a professor at the university of Sydney, who created Matt caps, along with his colleague Michael Roman. Here's how it works. Imagine we have two 14 year old swimmers competing in a hundred meter freestyle. Both with the exact same birthday. Joey and Tim. So these academics would first calculate the biological maturity status of each swimmer. That is, how far each one is from their estimated point of peak performance. So let's say, for example, Joey is actually 12 months less biologically mature than Tim at this exact moment. Then comes the cool part. Copley then looks at thousands of data points for 14 year olds swimming in the hundred meter freestyle and calculates what is 12 months of maturity worth on average in terms of swimming time for kids competing in that age group. He enters the data into the maturation based corrective adjustment procedures algorithm, and presto. The procedure adjusts Joey's time to account for the fact that at the moment he raced him. He was 12 months behind developmentally. An adolescent swim meet in cobbles ideal universe has two sets of results. The raw results, and then the maturity adjusted results. What you're doing is you're effectively lowering the time of the folks who are slightly behind in terms of their maturity status. Kabli did a test run of the macca's algorithm on a sample of 700 Australian swimmers. All boys competing in a hundred meter freestyle. The first thing he discovers is similar to what we found at Penn. Among the top 25% of all adolescent swimmers, there were no late maturing boys. None. Zero. Which is an astonishing fact. Australia is a country that takes swimming as seriously as Canada takes hockey, and they have basically decided to banish a big group of young swimmers from consideration just because their talent happens not to appear. Soon enough. When you looked at these 700 swimmers, in some sense, the damage has already been done. We've already chased away the slow developers. They've quit. They've got discouraged, they thought they were bad swimmers. They didn't realize they were simply behind. Yeah. So what happens when you run everyone's race times through the madcap's algorithm, adjusting for maturity? The order of finish in every race changes. They're really talented swimmers who just happen to be slower to mature, now have a chance. They used to be lost to the system. Now you can tell who they are. Now you can go up to young Joey and say, I know you didn't make the final. But take a look at your mat caps time. You might be the best swimmer out there. So what's the most somebody moved

"Formerly eldest children have responded by holding their kids back. Whereupon the first set of parents are increasingly holding their kids back a second time, meaning that there is at least a theoretical possibility that in the most competitive corners of American private education, some kids may never graduate from high school. Maybe I should have seen all that coming when I wrote outliers. I should have made it clear that I was not trying to teach neurotic upper middle class helicopter parents how to gain the system. I just wanted schools and sports leagues to start behaving like idiots. So, Barnsley's paper on relative age effect came out in 1985. Outliers, which was I think the first time Barnsley's work got wide publicity, was published in 2008. The world has been alerted for decades to the fact that all kinds of supposedly meritocratic systems have been hijacked. Has anything changed? You're in front of your computer. Are you? I put the question to roger Barnsley. The OG of relative age effect research, what have we learned? Can you Google the roster of the Canadian junior hockey team national hockey team for 2021, 22? The current roster. We'll do it right now. And I want you to go down the list of the forwards. Just use the forwards for the sake of simplicity. And I want you to just read the 21 months of birth of the forwards on the current Canadian junior national hockey team. The birth dates are just their names. I just want their birth months. And then binds the repeated what his wife Paula did decades ago at the lethbridge Broncos hockey game. He listed the birth month by number of the members of the national junior hockey team. Listen for birth months of 7 or higher. Two ten one one one two 11 8 four two ten 5 four 5 two 6 one three one one 5 three two four 7 one. It's the same thing. Same thing. They've learned nothing. It's the same phenomenon you saw. You saw it this 40 years ago. The iron law of Canadian hockey is still an iron law. Isn't that funny? It's depressing. Very depressing. Very good frozen. Here we are both Canadians. We are, we are citizens of a country that cares more about hockey, excellence. Than anything else. Let's be clear. Anything else. And we are leaving an astonishing amount of talent on the table. Exactly. And we're fusing to learn. What if Canada's own academics 40 years ago said to the Lockheed establishment, what are you doing? Yeah, that's right. And they didn't, they haven't done anything. Canadian hockey hasn't done anything, but maybe revisionist history can. The inspiration for the revisionist history Wharton school relative age effect experiment. Came to me when I was talking to Adam Kelly. Former footballer turned university professor. Kelly is a disciple of roger Barnsley. He works with sports leagues to help them solve their age related problems. Like England's basketball federation, which spent a small fortune, setting up regional centers to identify promising players. We looked at the proportion of players who were selected into those talent centers across the nation. And that was at age groups. Selected from 13 to 15, both at male and female. And those who were born in birth quarter one were ten times more likely to be selected. Ten times. Birth quarter one is the three months closest to the English basketball eligibility cutoff date. Yeah, which is absolutely crazy, isn't it? Same old story, the talent spotters thought they were picking the most promising players, but in fact, they would just picking the oldest kids. Because the oldest kids were, of course, the tallest and most coordinated. Anyway, Kelly's also thought a lot about education. Why is everyone taking their exam at exactly the same time? Surely we should all be taking it at that same time within our lifespan. So if you're born in August, you're taking your exam almost 12 months earlier than someone who's born in September. So that person's at 12 months more learning than you. Which is super obvious when you think about it. In New York State, all the big elementary school math and English standardized tests are in late March early April. We're talking third graders, 8 and 9 year olds. At that age, kids get smarter every week. Yet we're trying to assess kids by their test scores and some of the kids were judging had been around as much as a year longer than other kids. Why don't we have the January kids all take the test in January and the February kids in February and on and on down the line? I have no idea. Honestly, no idea. So I gathered the research arm of revisionist history. Without props, recording equipment, and extra microphones, and headed for the gothic ivy covered cathedral of higher learning that is the University of Pennsylvania. To see if a group of really, really smart young people, can figure out the importance of the month when they happen to be born. Turn over your pieces of paper. Put your name in the top. And once you're finished, we will collect them. And then we will commence the exercise. So we give out our elaborate questionnaire, but secretly, our interested in is people's birthdays. And then eloise and Harrison go through each questionnaire and use the birth dates to do a simple calculation. Technically, the youngest you could be as a college senior at the time of our experiment was to be born in September, 2001. So if you were born then, you got a zero. Zero, birth privilege. If you were one month older, born in August 2001, you got a one. July 2001, you got a two. And so on. The higher the number on the sticker, the older the student wearing it. We even had a contingency for students who might have skipped a grade somewhere along the way. You'd get a negative number if you were younger than the expected age of a college senior. First thing we found out, there were no negative numbers in the room. Back when I was in college, I knew dozens of people who had skipped grades. Apparently, that doesn't happen much anymore. But it was worse than that. There's no zeros. Does anyone know one? Two. Three twos? Three. Fours. 5s? Anyone less than ten stand up? One student finally stood up in a back row.

Yeah that's where Pontiac started. And i don't two thousand ten pontiac went out of business so that was their last thing but they're still on the road in big numbers in certain places. Certain places you go. Well if a young adam corolla ever wants to see his future car that he could only dream of the firebird and stuff we have. We have commercial. Oh really well. I don't know feel like we should take a look at that The other thing is is. I think Basis of getting a lot of shit for because he did his press conference after he got off the rocket and he said I wanna thank everyone who works. Ram is on and the people who buy amazon. They paid for this trip and then of course. Everyone billionaires can't make statements anymore with certain segment of our society getting their panties in a bunch but just the existence of billionaires right. that's a large number of people but don't we like like let's put it. Let's put it this way. None of us our kids. And we aren't going to be on the planet for two hundred years. And because of branson and bezos and Elon must soon. There's a very realistic chance that we could go to outer space as civilians in our lifetime. If we so choose. I mean. I don't know what you know not not next year but in ten years from now plans that we could all whatever and the fact that these big swing and dick billionaires are all sort of vying for for the same prize competing they went to get up faster and whatever. Don't we like that. I mean if it was up to the government and nasa that would not be a realistic new embodied race right so good let them spend their money and let them do this. And then you go. Yeah so on that point. You could make the argument. This is better than government. Funded space travel because i watched side note the documentary summer. A soul about sixty nine block woodstock harlem cultural festival. It was the same summer same now. He's scoring points with the black community but yet he turns his back on the mideast twenty-seven offering washed it no involvement is the same weekend as the moon landing so there was a reporter. They were very buttoned up. White reporter what you think of the landing and he's interview just all black attendees at the harlem cultural about them all and they're all saying like honestly i don't give a shit doesn't affect me and money could have been used a feet a lot of people and that's a good. That's a good argument like it was a great moment for our country. But that's a lot of money of taxpayer. That is the most that that quote is the most of the grievances. I'm seeing on social media. Go private equity at least right but that's not. I'm not saying i agree. I'm saying this is like you're asking like what's everyone's getting their panties in a bunch of could've you know we could have clean water. We could feed this but no these guys have to play with their toys. Whatever but i feel like people like branson and they don't like bezos branson branson's english right. We just were done with sort of rich americans. We do not want to have the beef with the guy with the english accent. I think there's some of that. It would be interesting because you know. England is in in western. Europe is getting pretty woke if not may possibly more woke than than we are here in the united states. Be an interesting little case. Study if they didn't like branson in england but like faso's more because that's just the the devil you don't i'm sure kayla can look that up approval rating by country but there's also whenever very high also this individual these guys are. I heard some stat. That you know that i won't even bother giving it out 'cause i can't even remember but it used to cost x. Amount a kilo to put something into outer space so a satellite or for your phone or television or whatever communications or whatever it is with x. amount per pound. That's what they charge since since these guys got involved that prices come way down. Which of course makes sense. Because someone doesn't have a monopoly looking to save. I stanford save a buck and it's also they're also trying to they're competing against one another and then you could kind of say well but then how's it. How do we know it's safe because overseeing probably not gonna shoot themselves in zero regulated but yeah whoever's rocket blows up that's going to hurt business pretty pretty badly. I'm frankly impressed that these guys not so much branson with the drop from the from the airplane but rocket ship to getting into a rocket ship at the pretty early stages of all this stuff. It feels pretty ballsy. Yeah and i'm sure they know a bunch of shit that i don't know but it still seems crazy ballsy to get into launch a rocket from the ground straight up into the air when we could all just close your eyes and see endless footage of those things going up and then coming back around and boom. You know that makes me wonder with all this stuff. We've been talking about about flight. And maybe they think that airlines are small potatoes because obviously they care more about going to space. Would it be an amazon airline Up lucie that. Yeah i I guess i was gonna say it doesn't sound like a great name for an airline like but it only goes to south america. Well we have airbus so now. It's all the world's worst name for a plane the airbus and maybe we should change the name that because i feel like a lot of people are throwing down in fighting on airbuses like they would on on on a bus. I mean. maybe. It's the word boston screwing everybody. Up airline knows airbus's a french company's i imagine means something different orange juice locations the sound better. All right we have.

Yeah so we use of equipment these special mixer zoom you guys in and it works so you guys can your ad when obviously we get you and we can record it all and it just wouldn't turn on no matter where we plugged it or how he looked it in so we had to use a different way to record the show and unfortunately with that we couldn't zoom you guys. Well i'm i'm twofold pissed because not only did i want to be part of the show but i had. I ended up at boss baby too. Because i no longer worked.

And that was. My favorite part of the movie are are host matt. Who's my age. Looks exactly like jim young blood. Nfl hall of famer former rams. No one ever told him that that point so later on. This made me insane so that night. He's like what football player did it look like again. We were just talking at the bar. And i couldn't remember the name because i didn't know jim. I just walked up to him. And when you look exactly like jim young bud and then crispell up a picture and we held it next head or whatever but he is your age would have been like a teenager when he played a young gish. proven alive. Gm is seventy one hour or something but he's still just looked at jack jim youngblood. They're both thirty. Two seventy one totally looked like but so i'm talking to matt the manager king like we're trying to figure out what football player because he's trying to tell us friends like oh so adam. Thanks i look like this guy. I couldn't remember the name. And i kept going like i think. His name's jim young. Jim young match like no something else and then i'm not kidding. Ten seconds later matt's phone rings and he looks at it and a guy named jim young is calling and he just says end and just still just continue. Talk to me. Didn't mention anything at all. And i was like how weird is that. That is weird. Jim young calls him. Doesn't say anything just continues. Like what do you think of. You guys are really in the land of the great magnet.

Yeah yes when we were able to pull up those pictures it was. It was striking. Yeah there wasn't a tv anywhere in this lodge. And i doubt they cared about sports or anything like that.

Moose is it's got a little news it's got a little gaming. It's got a little beef with a little liver yet. Spanish to really reminded me of liver like if if there's anything to compare it to is kind of delivery and gamy but still a little closer to beef as well. So it's like a mixture of the two texture livery delivery beefy of kind of both will. Yeah a little little greasy a little dark. You're not gonna come back. Oh god i could go a little gamy now. None of us felt that way. But chris chris loved it i had to. I had to keep eating. I just wanted. I've never had before. I did like it but the best part was so. We did the line. Which was yesterday's episode. And adam goes on stage talking about the salmon and the moose and he's like yeah the salmon i had a day of. I thought it'd be great but just tastes like salmon. And i've never seen a crowd turn on atom so fast. Yeah and then. Adam adam doubles down it says also the moose was gross and i. I don't think it's tough thrown at them. They really a partisan crowd and the tough part of alankar anchorage honky. Those guys did not like my moose salmon to show. They're coming so how'd they cooked the mood. They gotta tell me maybe did it wrong. They were they were really concerned. That atom didn't care for them. You're not trying to ingratiate yourself into this. Gramma truth teller and i was getting paid and i wanted to leave. But i'm a truth teller. I didn't know that ninety. Seven percent of anchorage audience members would love moose. I this naples with your pizza there. So in the mood and salmon like i thought talking people anchorage if we said same and they'd roll their eyes like oh yeah not saying oh they love it. They're so they're so in other so proud of it. And i thought they'd be either little burnt out on or they treat they treat it like when people go. Oh we should go down to the la brea tar pits while i'm in town. There's nothing they're gonna go there like your locker socks like making fun of our street dogs which we would agree with. Yes yes i thought. I didn't know the entire room with that. They love their same another moose and all that. So yes a hayes the crowd but the guy shot the moose was sitting directly behind us so we couldn't leave any moose on the plate even though we weren't really that into the moose but that's where chris kicks at august august asleep. You come see come saw with the moose. Ryan gives okay where they didn't love it. Yeah and these are appetizers. We still had like a wise come in. We had like tar tar. We'd fish and chips.

That seemed like they were. They had a pass. they were running from. There are some pretty salty characters out at the lodge but all seem pretty more interesting than dangerous. Sean valjean s sure. Yeah adam gets there. And they wanted les mis they wanted Oh yeah the doctor who injected. Tim mcveigh with the lethal injection celebrity. Signing you recognize sunny. Recognize your work. Wait a second. How did that even come to be known as it works conversation a couple of guys came up to adam and the they were just fans and they're shaking san and as soon as you walked away the manager at the lodge told us like.

I got it sitting up on the sitting up upstairs in the green room. Dawson took the stage for the late show on saturday night and after about nine minutes. I thought i'd better go down there. It's just check on how we're doing good thing you did. Because i ran out of material with eleven cad work. he's getting laughs there. You go all i did. Do some crowd work. Somebody in the crowd yelled. Allan parsons and so that added about two minutes to my. As i said that i went to a party of this house. And and they had a a queue of guests coming in who were announced by this old british. Guy now entering. They'd say everybody's name. They made it as british as possible. And i said i said so. They had everybody waiting in a queue. And then i say the crowd the q. That's what they call a line in europe. In fact i remember being in london. Snorting cues off the back of toilet.

"Three four one seven four four. Yeah got something to say about that. But i'll i'll tell you after. The alaska crystal remind me about this situation on the one on one It was So we we went out fishing the first day we caught nothing. We went after king salmon. I think or maybe went after rainbow trout. Kim salmon yeah. It didn't matter to me. We're sitting in a boat. Bali goals overhead. It was so god damn majestic You know. I think the i think the guides were a little frustrated. Because they're over the whole majesty of the thing that when to catch fish i was just enjoying enjoying the outdoors and the boat ride and the lake and they were clear was they. They were kind of upset and almost like embarrassed that we weren't able to get anything the first day these gina. These guys go fishing seven days a week. The guy the guy that took dawson and me out we asked him like what he does is fishes every day and then what about winter you stays guy stay here and what do you do if you can't fish like i got the fishing channel. He's watching the fishing channel down aquarium and the lot of life so the next day we found out that the sakai or running what. You're not the king salmon. They're smaller the the sockeye salmon were running and if we went to this place up the river we could get no a cove and we could catch him now. What i didn't know is the way you catch the sakai sakai sam. Just run right along the bank. All the way up the fisher nuts. They start in bristol bay they start out in the bay and or at sea you guys all know the story and then they go all the way up all dreams and the tributaries but you gotta know how far these fucking fish travel because we went down to bristol bay and that was a long ride where they come in and then when we went up. I'm saying up and down. I don't know if it's down and over up but we went to brooks falls and that's a plane ride. So the point is is the salmon goat start way the fuck down there and go all the way up and they end up in the mouth of the bear at the top of the miniature waterfalls down so the sakai were running now the sakai. Are you good size there. You know two and a half feet. They're they're anywhere from sixteen inches to twenty five inches and they're anywhere from four pounds ten pounds but they're good size fish. You've seen in the picture and it's good eaten and all that stuff and you go this cove and you can see them literally just all going up up the stream and they go about their about ten feet from the shore in water. That's like three maybe four feet deep and you see him running. You just seem going steady stream. And i sit. They're going upstream like they're they're moving pretty fast like like trying to swim but but their speed they're swimming upstream is pretty slow. So you're just walked right right. And then i sit down. What do we what do we use. Lures or bait. And they're like now once they hit once they leave the bay they don't eat. I don't know probably something to do with spawning. But there is no eating for this entire. You couldn't imagine expending more energy and not eat. It would be like i. It'd be the equivalent of you saying. I'm gonna run nine tour de frances in a shopping car. But they'll be no granola bars like the entire time like not interest. They don't eat but they have to swim hundreds of miles upstream against the current right. So what you do. You cast your line in there and you started drag. It's kind of fly fishing and kind of dragging you hook them. You just your hook which is just floating free with no bait or lure. Anything just hooks them by you. Just grab fish bite you you grab them and i was like that seems kind of weird insane but it it started working and then it started working pretty fast and everyone was pulling them up. But not mike. Mike stood on the boat. And you can see the stream of them going right by and the guy was right and the guy was left. Everyone is catching fish in. Mike wasn't a mike. He's talking about you. You fuck out. We had to put on waiters worth like these. Little these overalls kind of cut off at the chest. Yes you can get into the water. Everybody was in the water but might decide to stay on the boat. Oh well there you go well but no people were on the shore. Dawson was on the the shore. There was some generous on the shore. The fish knew he wasn't into it. He was injected a little experiments. After about three hours of mike catching nothing in dawson pulled up five at that point. Yeah five five. He was just pulling them up one after the other. And so was everybody sunning. Jen chris amazon. Mike literally nothing with everyone around him. Pulled up at that point. You know we'd pulled up twenty. Three fish between us and mike accounted for zero at some point he said i'm getting off this boat and i'm gonna go stand. Where dawson stood because dawson was pulling them up all day and then he went and stood. We're dawson stood in dawson. Did you go onto the boaters at gen now. I just moved down a little bit. Chris up on the boat and then whoever replaced mike on his position on the boat. Start pulling up but but my still never never have one and at some point at the end of the day when we've got near our limit. The guide hooked one and then handed the fall for a little girl who's like on the shore. Think your daughter to see fewer australian. Put the little rubber band around the chopsticks. It was exactly that bad was like from the makeup fish foundation. Here here little boy little terminal boy make a fish and he just handed him the poll and mike technically caught. You know half a fish but so we did all that and then came back and everyone is in a good mood and the guys went to the fish house and just flayed all the fish fish. Those fish yeah. I got some in my. I got a lot my freezer. Because we've got the. We got the cooler from the airport and all that stuff Comedy served one up that night for us to enjoy dinner. Yeah they put them all in the free vacuum vacuum seal beautiful like a hugh of orange and pink that you just don't. You're not used to seeing in the supermarket so fresh show. Whatever and served up served up served it up for us for dinner along with the moose you see beneath us. What oh yeah..

But from the body language of the mom and the cubs the cubs knew they had to stay next mama and the momma knew she had to stay away from the mail alphabet like they would be fishing. I guess adam before we got there. Some of the people said that they actually caught the mama and the cubs caught a few fish and then if they were like two hundred yards one hundred yards from the from the falls and if the big bear would even just look in their direction. The momma bear would freeze. Oh my inches. Not just be just totally alerted and then if it took a step forward they would just scamper away. Did you get in trouble when it was revealed that you had a cub in your coat on the way back. They weren't that cubby they were. They were clearly juveniles but they were not you know little only police now weren't roly police. They were able to go out in the stream and so to hang out sauce. Some anglers down the stream couple hundred yards just walking across the stream like three dudes with their fishing poles. I don't know who those dudes are. I don't either and that's why i thought it was crazy that the next day we hear like oh bear. Swipe at brooks falls like somebody got swipe by bear.

Got to get it on judgment and a mandate you get it off for tune in they tell the out about you. Reggina grant right great all right so Back from alaska plenty of stories to tell about Alaska i have to say i think i passed the point in my life where i get jealous of a lot of things i was. I was sorta seething for five days. I was so jealous. It is Breathtaking yeah but You know it's not you know. Half of it is the topography of it. The beauty of it the natural surroundings and all that stuff. I think maybe three texas could fit in their three times so i hear that full maybe two and a half or three i said to the audience at three but maps where they show like a tiny little alaska title a hawaii off to the side. Really don't do it just no. It's it's it's vast it's spectacular. It's the more the more that the takeaway that you get from. Alaska is more the mindset of alaska. Yeah texas one and a half times. I don't think it's three times but at least according it's much bigger than we're led to believe. Well it's twice it. it has texas. Has you know two hundred seventy square miles. Seventy thousand square miles on alaska's got sixty three.
