"adam abi" Discussed on Reality TV RHAP-ups: Reality TV Podcasts

"But I think these and what was great about the move was that Ed isolated at imp- which puts him below them and we can the old school alliance and most importantly Olympic anyone's going to be like too angry about it. Obviously it makes sense Boston Robin and probably going to be hurt by it. But I don't think that they're going to be like talk it number one and two in the drive. I still think that Adam. Abi this person who is going to be targeted. Most by the old school alliance. What's left of it that people who remain and then you still have poverty in Boston? Robin the game. Who all the biggest states around in trump's that move just was well executed and very rarely. Dc and moving played played at this early that will probably have negative effects on the game because oftentimes people take shots in the game and being that's used as a justification so I don't think neither Michelle nor do I think Jeremy is going to like suffer from the move and I'm going to be like okay these two on now going to be voted out before merge or even in the first devotes often merge because they took out Ethan. I think that it's a logical movement. I don't think it's caused that much disdain in the Group. I don't think that the victim it will be that die for them. Yeah I agree and just to clarify Michelle from New Jersey but I suppose she moved to Boston. And that's why she injury me connected so I actually do think the Boston connection was the undoing of Boston. Lines kind of is amazing if you think about it but from a shell like as someone who thought Richard One on say that what. Michelle has always had is the social game. We've always doing that. I just don't think in Koran. I released her wheeled it strategically I know she was well live and she was enough to get your avoids. The notion was enough to be in a license but I didn't see her actively using that as a strategic weapon and this episode. I saw that handful slow going around and having those social conversations that all had the social basis but it was to make. I think a big move in Michelle's ever made in her career and also importantly as much talk about needing to prove herself. I actually also really don't think it was a big move for big move. Say because as you said. I think that well insulated and I get it like I de not wanting to trust animals. The new plans leading him out. So you have to vote with that. Four out of eight plurality but I also get that you don't really want them to be the topic right now because he's you know he's not as big a threat as very tight very Paulos will. Is I get not going for poverty. The plan has has outed her at that point. You GotTa Blindside Boston. Robin his Alliance on going off the obvious target Shouli. I've heard the Michelle had wanted to work with poverty. Jeremy could work with Boston. Rob Watson Robe. Obviously office might have been challenges as a shield with individual relationship. We'll talk about the amazing things he's doing but like I get ethan surprising target. He's always threatening in his own right. He's maybe not as helpful in the challenges. He's more threatening than than Adam and I totally get. That was a big move at a very good move. I don't think it was just for the sake of being like you said I couldn't make moves include wrong. Well here I am and yeah I honestly think like some of the best. Gameplay I've ever seen from Michelle and she already season. Yeah and that's actually a really important beat because perhaps Michelle. Wasn't this strategic mosque. The mind she claims she was uncaring. And that's fine. You know sometimes people when seasons by sort of like being a likable person and having great social skills. And that's totally okay. That's the nature of it encourages that sort of behaviour. But she's now been putting on a season with the best of all time and she's made a really consequential enter really remarkable move. So even if you don't feel like she was the ultimate play in I think that the fact that she's done this well in that war as an incredible amount of validity to her name and she has proven that she is a strong strategist already and so for for Michelle. It's just a general. When because if he makes it to the end now she's got this. As a point of excellence in a resume she can be like okay well and it takes enough of it because I know from like my experience of being on so I remember very clearly thing. It's a myself I need to make sure I've got something to prove that I played a good game throughout the whole time. And that's why I was always quite eager to push the envelope a bit. Michelle's done that now and the votes has been really powerful and she can sort of suspect for awhile and Layla and take it easy if she chooses to do that because she's got a strong image that she pulled the trigger on that put a firmly in the driving seat in the game and I think obviously Jeremy is is as is benefiting as much from it. I don't think Jeremy is questioned as often as Michelle is so while Jeremy's like this ricky fantastic player. He's done really one. That Michelle has oftentimes been lambasted by the community will being a weaker pay of in Oldbury at Koran. So I think she deserves credit. You know she's she's really muscles that she is a strategic force and honestly like she looked completely at ease doing it. She was not more second lasted methodical. She was mechanical. She was really really a chemical in the way she wins the buttocks giving this plan so she blew me away. I was so surprised by how good she was completely agree like. She had complete clarity of what needed to be done. In terms of the plan she had relations with which we know she always had to make it happen and why it's totally valid to win. Having a great social game and not being most of what you've impressed the jury was a white people voting for you completely valid but something I think would be really really difficult to achieve on windows at war so she kinda knew she had to step it up use okay more actively more more purposely. Oh more lethally. She's done here honestly. Think as well from the show with what she's been trying to achieve she'd rather not win win again as the ineffectual social play. I really do believe that he wanted to come out and show like yes. Yes THOSE UTAH. Phychi can use them and do more than that and he's already showing that so. I hope it doesn't become a thing where it's like. I'M GONNA keep making big moves like I hope. They continue to be well timed wealth. Well-thought-out really clear we really well executed and then have a kind of build on reputation that way because I think that from a lot of the stuff. You're saying preseason I honestly think Michelle would be happy to just like through. This season strategically shows hat and that she gained that. She's and even not win. Because I think that's what you're trying to get out of it. It's just for a million dollars is nice. Everyone wants to win but I think if she can come out here and kind of change your reputation to be social but still closely strategic and really dangerous when she wants to get out of it and that's she's done great in terms of that as well. A medicine motivation for people playing survivor. Like to have a good time is definitely a motivation behind it. That was my intention of going. I was like I didn't really care about winning that much. I said Emma submission video and I ended that I wasn't concerned about winning the game and it was more just like a personal experience and I think Michelle could be doing that you know. She's got a million dollars in the bank. She's chilly someone is smart and can probably find a way to be successful at any scenario with issued whatsoever and I think that it's really there to taste not only herself but also to prove ourselves to the community. Because anyone says like you can be ready insulated and you can try your best to make sure that you are confident enough to ignore the comments. They escaping and the horrific and people are really mean to you. And if you're playing but you can't help it. Unsafe and people need to be fair. Read it maybe her platform but the totally agree. Yeah so just. Generally speaking the people people critical of the sort of thing so the fact that she's been able to do this now is fantastic for her. I'm glad that she had opportunities to do it. And I hope that it leads to like a momentum for because she's been the real I mean her and Bain certainly have been surprising place the season. I think they are both soy fine. I was like kind of uncertain about them in the context that we're in war but they're both added such lay such takes into this season and I'm happy with both of them being now. I would agree like Sarah. Cena's well would be one for me but like chief some fun with Toyota. Absolutely like there's just like there's no weeks weeks plus it's actually crazy like that. You know the the question if the eternal question is always. Would you rather win? Be a bad winter like a legend rob got ads. And I think that's Michelle pre winter war. Having already won Koran is like the I'll be fascinated to know if he would rather be I mean how would you be a bad when when is it wall but like seen as an ineffectual winner order just like destroys game and come agonisingly short like based on everything she said preseason I would have to think I don't know two million dollars a lot. Maybe I'm overstating it but I genuinely think all these time out there with a plan of Ryan to Change People's minds and she's doing great with that whereas Jeremy who she has a very different agenda he has not not a lot to prove nothing to prove and if anything. He's like way out in front. Always EAT JEREMY. He looks like he does. He plays challenges like he does. His relationship with that was already spoke threatening that they got rid of her for him to let Michelle kind of take the lead on a vote. He's still controlling. Is Perfect for him as well. I think that was like such a symbiotic relationship and the way this happened couldn't have happened better for the way that she kind of took charge. He stepped back. They both got their way. And now they're like in the best part and the trial after having been less than effort unto Jeremy for a moment. I think that we also need to appreciate that. Jeremy is maintained off as one of the greatest of all time in my mind because obviously he's situation in second chances was remarkable and note. That has that but sometimes we're electing to put him in the same category as some of the best time because he wasn't as strong in San Jose and I think that you need to oscillate that season because obviously the first situation was dealing with the fact that his wife was in the game and he was part of the reason that she left because he beats a in the couple of.

"I don't think so. We did talk about this a little bit so I don't pay too much but like nick has not had time to get into the survivor community whereas Adam Hats Adam has met these people. He's played blackjack with Boston. Rob Me but I lost. They didn't And I you you know whereas nick is so new that he just hasn't had that chance and you know we talked about a little bit. Tyson mentioned that like he turned his baseball baseball cap around and then nick turned his baseball cap around which was in one way. It's like communicating. I WanNa work with you but it's also kind of like oh MHM I. Yeah I I like that. I like that assessment I think also atom comes across as a little bit more Um Strategic so I think even if atoms sort of plays the shocks like I'm just so excited to work with you. I think people will always second guess his motivations just just because he's so vocal about strategy and he's so vocal about how much he loves the game. But not as so much as I think. Nick is just like a happy puppy dog. That wants to be there. I think Adam is really a little bit more at least appears to be a little bit more strategic and cutthroat and so I think that if I had to pick between in the two of them I think Adam Abi targeted I over nick or could be probably more appealing as an ally of all depends. If you're going for like a brain trust thing like I want somebody somebody to bounce ideas off of at. It'd be more viable but if you're just looking for like a loyal soldier and that's when Nick is hoping right he's straight he says I want to be a free agent at this point hoping that all these big guns target target one another and they just use me as a number then he would probably be from a perception perspective. Someone says ago for over Adam. Yeah exactly all right. Yeah.

"You have to have a license to have a car doesn't seem that unreasonable that for deadly weaponry. We would do the same most Americans are fine with this most responsible gun owners shouldn't cause any problems for them. But the issue is that when we lack that just as we lack universal background checks in most states. We wack red flag laws to disarm. Domestic abusers help with other situations where somebody who poses a danger to others or to themselves can far too easily get weapon it's making our country who has safe. I'm fine with this being something that is harmonized at the federal level, but managed at the state level kind of how we do that are suitable for flying federally, but you should at the state level. The, the point is, it's got to be up to a certain standard nationally in order for it to work. Yeah. No, that's Pete Budaj edge Hussein. Now we have to have a registry that's against federal law. And I wouldn't want the government to have a registry of who owns a firearm, I don't understand progressives, the socialist fetish with making lists of people. That's just it's creepy creepy to me when he says, we'll every law-abiding he compares it to driving a car, which is such a lame. It's so lame on so many levels first off a car driving. Cars is a privilege. Not a natural right, number one. Number two. That's something also that goes to be controlled and regulated by each of the individual states, as opposed to firearms. Number three, cars are not used as a tool of defense. And there is there are more Adam ABI accidents than there are homicides, so. We're gonna start banning cars. Now, if someone if someone is abusing their privilege of driving vehicle, do you ban all other innocent people from being able to drive their cars? And firearms are used more vastly more three times more to protect life than to take life in a legal possession. And in criminal situations. So this is it's, it's a shame that he decides to go down that road and, and push for that. But no, we're not going to register every firearm because I don't want addresses and names of people to be published because New York paper did that, once I think it was, what F L's they published the paper, New York that it. No, no, thanks. We don't need any of that. So we're not going to register firearms in America because it's none of the government's business, what I am it's people edges. Whatever business what I own. And do you honestly, trust the government with lists of people, the United States government think about this? If there is on the left a massive distrust of cops, and this idea that all cops are racist or all cups are bigoted by supporting these, these policies from these individuals in the democrat party, you are there by only granting that those in the only granting those individuals the ability to have firepower. Does that make sense of people reconcile that you? They think Trump is Hitler, but yet only Trump should have guns. What ever loving world? It's just not. He's trying to. I mean, in butter, judge is not a moderate. He's a full on socialist. He's a full on socialist. Absolutely. But this idea that, that, well we can. This is how registry when to stop repeat offenders. You know, I was looking at this was something that pull us up. Chicago media was saying this that Eddie Johnson. Who's the Chicago police superintendent. He's, he's been. He's been blasting it once again. I mean, let me show this video. I saw this story. Chicago sees the most violent weekend of twenty nineteen with fifty two shot ten killed. And then eleven of the nineteen arrested they were felons. They had a list of, of felony gun crimes on a record the Chicago PD spokesman Anthony Google Google. Emmy. Tweeted superintendent Eddie Johnson outlines weekend violence. They enforcement efforts Chicago PD stepped up targeted enforcement to respond. He says, over ninety guns were taken off the streets. Eighteen arrested fifty two we're shot and killed. And then they said as of this afternoon eleven of the nineteen individuals arrested on gun charges over the weekend, by Chicago police are already out on the street seven of the individuals were previously convicted felons six had prior offenses in their background and Chicago police Emerson Johnson complained about it today saying, quote, we know who a lot of these people are, and how do we know that because we keep arresting over and over and over and over again and it's just a vicious cycle in quote. There is euro, deterrent. Chicago is one of the cities, along with L A and others on the bottom of the list. That. Is doesn't prosecute felony gun crimes? They just don't. And this was something that we've talked about a number of times, particularly when Joe Biden had it was that talked to the daily. No, he was on a daily caller was on a. This is back in two thousand thirteen who's on a press press call. And he said, look, we don't wanna I wanted to get his exact quote, he was, it was Biden in the White House gun violence task force twenty thirteen and bind said that the Obama administration just didn't have time to fully enforce existing gun laws, and they were specifically talking about fraudulent forty four seventy three's. And Joe Biden is quoted by reporters the same that we just don't have time to. We just don't have time to prosecute everyone who lies on a forty four seventy three. What Baker was he was talking to Jim Baker? Who is a works on behalf? He's a works with the NRA in DC. We, he says we just don't have. He says the direct what was in to your point, Mr Baker regarding the lack of prosecutions online, on form forty four seventy three's. We just don't have the time or manpower to prosecute everyone lies on a form that checks wrong box or that answers. The question and accurately. Are you serious? It's a felony. Defrauding line on a forty four seventy three's a felony. You could get ten years in jail. But that's something that he was think about this in twenty ten. And let me preface this by saying a lot of whenever you hear people like Hillary Clinton, and others say, oh, there's, and she said this before there were x amount of denials, with background checks. Most of those are false positives because the name is similar one of the things that my friend John Lott is always talked about it said that background checks for employers that employers have to do on employees can be more stringent and in terms of making sure that it's the correct name. And so in twenty ten out of the thousands of fraudulent people trying to, to defraud only twenty two cases were they can prosecutors only consider twenty two cases in two thousand ten. And then forty additional background check cases ended up before prosecutors for unlawful possession. Prosecutors pursued just forty four out of sixty two cases. And then there was something like seventy thousand applications denied. They said that gun prosecutions for these are felony crimes. Repeat offenders committing felonies in, in felonious possession illegally. A firearm and in twenty eleven. They were down thirty five percent prosecutions of felony gun crimes down thirty five percent. Thirty five percent. Unbelievable. Do you know that the Obama DOJ prosecuted less than one percent of criminals who try to buy guns illegally? Less.

"Have a track record that have built really great voice applications before. So you can think about that as if you're really highly rated, in, in another apps store, for example, on a voice application, then you're a good candidate for this. And what we're gonna do for those developers is give them a little bit extra support. So we want them into the platform early because we want we want to the Samsung users customers experienced their services. So when the marketplace launches we're gonna feature. Those developers on the on the main page of the marketplace. So they'll, they'll users will be able to see in discover their services easily as they're working on their capsules were also going to provide some white glove. White glove service through thrive Vange lists, and we're also gonna gonna give them devices to work with and that's important. Sometimes it's difficult for, for developers their hands on devices. So will provide those those loner devices for them. They wanted exclusive webinars as well. So I think Adam's can do to something special. Yeah. I think I saw something along those lines where one of the things that atoms gonna do is talk to people about their business model independent developers. Now they might succeed. He's got a quick track record on himself. So I'm sure that it'd be useful advice. So what if you're not one of the people that sort of broke through? So let's let me ask you a different question. Like, how many people do you expect to be part of the premier developer program over the next six months is at ten? Is it a hundred thousand I don't think we're, we're kind of talking about the exact numbers and to be honest. I don't know the exact number mice myself. So I think we're gonna take a look at what, what comes in kind of applications, get and make some decisions based on that. But probably not gonna be a thousand, it's, it's not going to be every developer in the world and it's not gonna be one. So that's something in between between one and two. Thanks for Naronha that down, everyone will appreciate that my pleasure. So what if what if I'm developing voice, but I don't have one of those breakout hit so I don't I'm not sort of an obvious candidate for the premiere developer program, but I still want to be involved. And I've got I've got some experience. I'm trying to move forward and maybe this is not pretending for me to like get into a new ecosystem in developed at high profile. Sure. Yeah. And we wanna invite all developers to use the platform again. All you need to do is sign up on the website and sign up for night developer count. And download the tools and you've got everything you need. But we're also doing is were hosting a number of developer sessions in the coming month. And so I believe we're doing one in San Francisco were also doing one in LA, and another in New York. So that's all in the month of June. So it's the eighth we, we start out in San Francisco. And then each way. Week after that. We're going to be in a different city. Those are like Saturday sessions, all day sessions. Is that right? Yeah. I think the eighth of June is in San Francisco. And in those sessions, you'll get kind of hands on support learn how to how to use the tools to build Adam ABI there and talk about how to create a successful voice apps things like that. And also gonna be giving away some, some prices, so we'll have some, some Samsung products that everybody loves at those events and you have a chance to, to win some of those. Well, so we think it's gonna be fun. We think we think it'll be helpful for developers. Okay. So developers. I know like swag, so you talking about like galaxy phones. Are you talking about televisions? What he talking about they'll, they'll definitely be some hardware in there. But will will keep it a surprise and, and also be Bixby swag, as well. So, okay. I got it so and those aren't restricted to the premier developers. That's is anyone can apply to that. Anybody can apply. If your voice developer, if your voice developer. Okay. So that. Restauration. Okay. So we'll put those links in the show notes. This is been this has been great. We're running a little long so of wrap this up, what questions should I have asked you that I did not while I wish I couldn't -ticipant that? I don't know. Are there are there any things that you think you should have asked that you didn't? I do have probably ten more questions that we're not getting too. But we, we hit on a lot of the main ones, I would say, let me let me ask you different question to cap this off. So, you know, talking to other people Samsung over the past year. I think there's recognition that clearly not I market in, particularly with this Bixby to show what you guys are bringing out now and, you know, with developers ecosystem promotion and those types of things is like, really in many ways the debut for this. So call it a couple years behind some of the other major players out there. What is going to determine your success over the next two years? In what do you think things are going to look like call it twenty twenty one around this timeframe in terms of Bixby, users and Bixby developers? So to me success looks like users, love the product and the product is improving all the time, and we get to the point where. Air users love to use it. And also on the developer side, I wanna make sure that developers, get to see the scale and they can see this as a channel for their business and away that they can they can be creative, and think about how their service makes sense on voice, and that we're giving them enough tools that they can experiment and try new things and really build experiences that we haven't even into the painted. So once I start seeing this take on a life of its own on the developer platform will know we're headed in the right direction. What about monetization? Sure. So there's going to be you'll see business models rolling out over time. I think initially, I think right now in the product developers can play with transactions so they can sell goods in in the right in, in Bixby and then over time you'll start to see more business models, rollout initially things that you'd probably expect from a marketplace, or Napster than overtime. We'll be experimenting with more. But that's a big focus wanna make sure that you can conduct business on the platform and, and make money. Okay. Well, there's basically three things that I hear from developers care about discovery retention. Maynas -ation, and if they have the tools to do those three things it might be a good use of their time. That's right. One other thing on a mention is will also be at the voice summit in July Adams doing keynote there so checked out as well. Okay. Voice summit Newark, Peter extend the mode of team are organizing safely say, the largest voice event globally this year. So yet we great to see you guys there. I'll be there as well. Marco how can people learn more about Samsung keep track of what you're doing personally? What's the best way to stay in touch? I would say, make sure you get onto the developer's website. That's where we'll you'll see events and news. And just stay in touch over the summer and look out for all the major announce. Moments at the events that you'll see popping up on the next few months. Excellent so voice by listeners. If you wanna sign up for those events in June, you probably would need to do so today when you're listening to this, if you feel listening after June twenty nineteen you can just ignore that, but there are a couple up there. I don't know if they're sold out, yet or not, or fully reserved, but might be worthwhile looking into an invoice, nineteen definitely. If you're gonna be out there, check out Samsung, but let me knows well, that you're going to be there just hit me up on Twitter at Brett can sell to let me know you'll be voice and try to get some of the podcast fans together during.

So call it a couple years behind some of the other major players out there. What is going to determine your success over the next two years? In what do you think things are going to look like call it twenty twenty one around this timeframe in terms of Bixby, users and Bixby developers? So to me success looks like users, love the product and the product is improving all the time, and we get to the point where. Air users love to use it. And also on the developer side, I wanna make sure that developers, get to see the scale and they can see this as a channel for their business and away that they can they can be creative, and think about how their service makes sense on voice, and that we're giving them enough tools that they can experiment and try new things and really build experiences that we haven't even into the painted. So once I start seeing this take on a life of its own on the developer platform will know we're headed in the right direction. What about monetization? Sure. So there's going to be you'll see business models rolling out over time. I think initially, I think right now in the product developers can play with transactions so they can sell goods in in the right in, in Bixby and then over time you'll start to see more business models, rollout initially things that you'd probably expect from a marketplace, or Napster than overtime. We'll be experimenting with more. But that's a big focus wanna make sure that you can conduct business on the platform and, and make money. Okay. Well, there's basically three things that I hear from developers care about discovery retention. Maynas -ation, and if they have the tools to do those three things it might be a good use of their time. That's right. One other thing on a mention is will also be at the voice summit in July Adams doing keynote there so checked out as well. Okay. Voice summit Newark, Peter extend the mode of team are organizing safely say, the largest voice event globally this year. So yet we great to see you guys there. I'll be there as well. Marco how can people learn more about Samsung keep track of what you're doing personally? What's the best way to stay in touch? I would say, make sure you get onto the developer's website. That's where we'll you'll see events and news. And just stay in touch over the summer and look out for all the major announce. Moments at the events that you'll see popping up on the next few months. Excellent so voice by listeners. If you wanna sign up for those events in June, you probably would need to do so today when you're listening to this, if you feel listening after June twenty nineteen you can just ignore that, but there are a couple up there. I don't know if they're sold out, yet or not, or fully reserved, but might be worthwhile looking into an invoice, nineteen definitely. If you're gonna be out there, check out Samsung, but let me knows well, that you're going to be there just hit me up on Twitter at Brett can sell to let me know you'll be voice and try to get some of the podcast fans together during.

And it's something that nobody is nobody nobody today can compare their their lives of this. He he made he made it he made it easy for everybody to come after in doing. So he had to turn the other cheek so to speak to some just wicked racial taunts the comments from the stands people wanting to fight him getting him thrown out of the game. And he was very very fiery player who has years went on. Definitely did stand up for himself and got some scrapes and he was established. But at the beginning, what he had to do was almost an incomprehensible the patients, you know, the the willpower and looking at the greater goal, and what it meant for the for the country is just a sounding.

"I I wanna give me and my distant cousins some lover I, but yeah. But you know, what I you know, what I really love though, what is what do you normally have at the beginning of every football season. You have last year's Super Bowl champ playing somebody for the first game of the year. Right. But this ought to tell you how the bears and the Packers move the needle 'cause one hundred season of football, correct? What the what the bears in the Packers? It's better. It's a nice way to do it. And it's I'm glad that they pick Soldier Field. Not Lambeau for them. Yeah. I we'll be listening to this weekend. We know you gotta run. Thanks. Well, thanks, buddy. All right, guys. I appreciate the time. That's Will Perdue. We'll be back on the road. He's going to that Louisville region to do Tennessee and Purdue and Virginia and Oregon, which should be an interesting. Those are the probably the best defensive teams in the tournament right now right now left over yet. Yeah. That'll be nice slow game that appeals to everybody. But boy Virginia can still even though they're better offensively and they did play at a faster pace, they could still be tough to watch. It scares me though, sometimes because of their offense goes broke all of a sudden which I mean, that's what happened last year in the first round. They have a tendency to go go long periods of time and not make shot and there's just no. There shouldn't say, no. But there's not as much margin for error than in you open yourself up to more randomness in more variation. When you're playing slow, you know, and it's like the one thing that is kinda haunted them as good as they've been under. Tony bennett. It's the one thing that is sort of haunted them and really haunted him last year when they became the first number one seed never lose. And it's still it you still need some pace early, especially, and you still need a level of efficiency that's going to get you back cushion, especially if you're like if you're playing ahead is Virginia you're in great shape because you slow the pace down that also comes with maintaining a certain level of offensive efficiency. Which on a lot of nights. They do. They're susceptible on certain nights to to to kind of fall off the bus the way, it wouldn't be shocking to see in a regional final between a twelve seed in the three. I mean, you could see Oregon going pensively. Season's gone. That's coach I loved Edelman. They they extended him a few weeks back for because they thought he might take it the the the Nebraska job and go back to the mid west. That was a good signing by word. Speaking of hoops, the bulls play tonight in Toronto a good game in Milwaukee. But the beard and the freak. Let's just use their nicknames. That'll be exciting tonight as we get closer and closer to start at the NBA playoffs and Adam ABI on the road. Doing a lot of those games as we talked about earlier, I see that Tim McMahon from ESPN dot com. Wrote again this morning about James Harden's ridiculously high usage rate. This is something I I talked about with your co a couple of months back when we started researching this, and I can't remember who wrote the original story at ESPN dot com. But the usage rate has been so high this year and at times it's been kind of out of necessity. Chris Paul was out a while Eric Gordon Smith games who else was cappella was out for a long time. I mean, you know, you sort of when he first started when he was, you know, maybe fifteen twenty games or whatever wasn't that streak. You started tracking is usage rate and said this is not. Sustainable, I it's at a dangerously high level forty percents percent and not player in the history of the NBA that's ever been over thirty five percent and it season win. And I don't think there are certain players in the like Westbrook. They haven't gotten out of the second round one. That's what McMahon put a chart in his story today. So here's the highest usage rate in a season in NBA history. Highest ever was Russell Westbrook in two thousand seventeen are they lost in the first triple double season. Obviously wanted the triple double seasons. He's got three in a row gone. By James harden this year, thirty nine point six that's the second highest. We don't know. We'll see what happens complex. Oh, six Kobe. Bryant lost in the first round twenty fifteen. Russell westbrook. Missed the playoffs. Yeah. Nineteen eighty-seven. Michael Jordan, lost the first round two thousand two Alan Iverson lost in the first round two thousand seventeen DeMarcus cousins missed the playoffs two thousand nine Dwayne Wade loss in the first round those are the highest in the history of the game. And it's why. It leads you to believe that they're not long for the NBA playoffs because he's going to have to be in. They're going to have to be on the other side of history. If he wants to make this work. It's just such a high usage rate. I don't know how it sustainable like in Tim story today. He's got video of James harden after their game over the weekend. You scored fifty or whatever the Friday or Saturday, and he's listening. In the gym right away. After the game. That's his idea of how he's going to be able to say sustain this. He's saying I'm strong. I'm staying strong. I'm lifting more than I ever have this late in the season. I don't know if that's good or bad. I think here's the difference to night tonight in the NBA, and you know, this as well as anybody there is not a lot of game prep that is very specific to the t- to a deep run. I should say like into the weeds of a team. Right. You know, they're they're tendencies. All right. We're going to go over the screen on this governor the screen on this guy. Let's blitz on this. Let's go one and a half defenders here the tendencies, but when you get into a playoff series you actually have time to prepare and adjust right? And that's what Houston's biggest issue has been granted last year they were step away. If Chris Paul and they're probably in the NBA finals. But that being said there's a judgments that have to be made game the game to game. And if it is harden soul far into the center and so far the focal point of the offense. When you have guys around that need to be to have the ball. Chris Paul needs to have the ball to be. A factor in a game. Clint cappella needs to have post touches to expand the rest of the floor Gordon each shots when he gets seven shots in a game. He's not very good. He's a volume guy. He needs twelve or thirteen shots. And then maybe he's gonna hit six or seven and a game. So if you're going that deep into usage rate for James harden and teams have a more of a window to adjust to him. I mean that's dangerous over seventy and period can eat torture for fifty and a playoff team. No doubt. He could probably do a two or three times in a series win a seventy seven game series against a a against a deep conference right now. Oklahoma City as much as they've struggled the really good and Paul George is really Georgia's insane this year. He's playing phenomenal basketball. Golden State is is Golden State. That's a deep conference right now that a lot of teams actually have a shot to get to the conference fine. Devastating blow for Portland last night. Your your kitchen below. Gruesome injured gruesome, I can't even watch the usage rate for people calling is just a metric you're gonna win over the whole formula last week. Actually, it's a percentage of team plays used by a player right while he's on the floor in anything in you know, like the greatest players ever the Michael that Kobe should be around about a third of a teams touches or or usage rate on an offensive end. But when you're up over the thirty five range, it just gets hard to sustain that complex MTO. Your guys are normally exhausted. Those were not very like the oh six Lakers were were an aging route very reliant on Kobe Bryant thunder team. A couple years ago was not very deep on Russell. Well, that was one of the thinnest teams. That's what's been great about Sam prestige turned that around and made it a very deep team and the tonight up in Milwaukee have the two leading candidates for MVP. Obviously harden is averaging thirty six point four this year since the merger only two players have ever averaged. At least thirty six points per game in a full season. The merger goes back to seventy seven. On that list. There's somewhere, where's he at averaging? Oh. Check that. I don't know five he's five and he's. He's two percents percent about the place. You would expect in that. Right. Go up obviously in the next couple of weeks with all the injuries if hardened plays these last eight games and averages about thirty to a game. He could join Michael is the only two guys post merger to ever average at least thirty six points in an NBA season. It's Michael and harden, and that's it. If you go all the way back to fifty five when they started the shot clock era. There's only four three guys that have done Wiltz. Gotta be did it five times. Seasons. Michael didn't eighty seven and Elgin Baylor and Baylor in sixty two none of those players ever won a title in those seasons when they average that many points you need depth to win championships. That's what it to do. We got cubs news. That's been breaking. This Kyle Hendricks deal is done. We'll revisit that. Plus, it's official the first few days of the rotation as they start in Texas. We'll go over that with you. We got new ballpark food to.

"He had talk outside of his mouth that we came up with this character for a couple of reasons one we wanted to have a side kicker producer someone that. Hey, here's my by professional producer and the guys like a mess. You know, he his head went through a tree and ohi. And he's yeah. Let me just go. Mr henry. We'll be right back. So I it's not quite right. You know, I thought that would be cool. So we came up with Dave del wagon. The voice was like this and it would eventually develop into this. So it took about, you know, ten years for that that to happen. And then the the next voice we developed in the city of Ventura was a generic. Sort of angry man voice that eventually became pastor William Rennick, but it hadn't it hadn't really developed yet. It just simply was a voice, and we had a bit that I would not play for you. Now that we did with pastor Rennick, and we did it again in L A, and our general manager there Howard, Neal said don't you ever put that on my radio station again, I really don't blame him. I'll just say that it had the N word in it. And so he just crapped canbat, and it was voiced by this character who eventually as I say became pastor William Rennick. But that character had to evolve didn't have didn't even have a name then. When we got to Atlanta after we left Ventura, we had a character named Steve war Nell now St. we're knows a southerner. We were in Atlanta. And on Saturday nights. We even gave Steve his own show, and he talked like this. He had Canada a kitchen throat. Yeah. Tell you some right now, it's almost like a southern bud Dickman. This Daytona five hundred is the greatest race degrees spectacle in ration- talk like this. And he was also a businessman from Dallas, Texas wealthy loved NASCAR. That guy eventually became Steve Bozell, and the voice more down from. Yeah. This Dow's texted everything came and he started talking like this here St. Bozell from early Los Angeles again fully realized Steve Bozell after the his days is worn Allan. This is a favorite bit of a lot of people Steve attempted to assert his dominance over neighbor's barking dog as he was out jogging one day to do I'm asking you. She is that you show the dog boss you so why do you have to show these his not eating your dogs? They were blocking manage street at anybody else to be hostile thought. They were what they're probably being. Thought that they were making foolish and children. My wife the dodger making foolish. All about Adam ABI Aiden not about the dominant position right there. I do know about human behavior. Behavior to drop it off you. Party or whatever. And you should you have going friend's house. I think I've had a dog attempt to when they come over. And you kinda laugh at all. With that he's dominant Steve Ozil. And that was typical of Steve as he developed into that character. He got his feelings hurt by everything even a dog that would hump his leg. And so when he was jogging this dog was barking at him. He went into that yard and started to sort of hump the dog from behind and that got him in trouble with the owner. That's Stephen Boselli. That's an example again from our early days in Los Angeles, probably around nineteen ninety nine two thousand something like that. Actually that was we were filling in for a show called Kerala, Andrew. That was on afternoons on KFI was great show. The guys run vacation. They let me jump in there and do some Fillon. And that's what Steve was I think I actually heard him say welcome to the krill Andrews show. So now still in Atlanta, we came up with another character because you know, we had this kind of voice for Steve wore Nell that eventually became this voice. We held on this force and it became Paul tubby lane. And Paul tubby lane was a NASCAR driver or at least a wannabe NASCAR driver. And he was with us periodically from Atlanta on but not a lot.

And actually, there's another giveaway for this episode. So just stay tuned to the end, and I will remind you on how to go about. Interim those giveaways you have a chance to win two really good books, very different. But really good. So today, I am interviewing Jennifer Wilk about the third in her series of books. This one is called learning to love, and it is about DNA. An atom Dina Jacobs is a single librarian who has never fit in due to her off the charts intelligence for hair and rounder than socially acceptable figure. She left her past behind until she receives an invitation. Action to her ten year high school reunion and all her insecurities return at a Mandal is a single corporate attorney who just missed his third deadline at his father's law firm. The law firm where he is up for junior partner with reputation on the line Adam needs all the help. He can get to convince his father that he deserves the promotion when Dina and Adam run into each other on a deserted road DNA thinks Mr. flashy pants can't possibly be interested in someone like her Adam thinks Tina is just the person to help him improve his reputation lies and insecurities for them to take a look at themselves. Can they trust each other to look beyond the surface? So yeah, there you have the description of learning to love it's got a great meet cute where they meet on the side of the road. And there's, you know, misunderstandings ensue, but then they develop a relationship that as often as the case with stories like this is based on not exactly mutual interest. The loser. There's mutual interest. On both parts. But then they end up with a relationship based on kind of a deal, they make and Jennifer we'll talk more about that. When she talks about the book. You know, there's lots of misunderstandings. Miss communications, no communication and having to figure out some of their own issues in order to develop a true relationship with one another which of course, they do because it's a romance. And you know, that's the way romances work. And they that's what I love about them. So that is a brief description of learning to love I loved DNA as a character because the very first description of her she is got an armful of books, and she's just pulled up to the library where she is a librarian. So I mean, literally in the first sentence that described Dina I was like, Yep. I already like her. I'm gonna like her character doesn't even matter. What she does after this. She's got an armful of books, and she's she works in a library. She is my spirit animal and. That my opinion did not change. She cracked me up. She has some quirks that I am somewhat familiar with maybe not to the extent that DNA has them. But I can completely understand. So I'm gonna stop talking and let Jennifer talk about her own book. So let's go ahead and get started with that interview. Again, the book is learning to love, and it is by Jennifer Wilk. Hi, Jennifer, welcome to the podcast. Hi, sarah. Thanks so much for having me today. We are going to talk about your new book learning to love. But before we get to the book if you could share just a little bit about yourself. So my listeners can get to know you that would be great. Sure, I'm a writer from New Jersey. I am published with the wild rose press. And I also do a little self publishing. I have two teenage daughters. One of whom is in college, one of whom is just about to be I married, and we have a rescue dog who pretty much runs the house pinkie so much for that. So as I said, we are here to talk about your new book learning to love, can you tell us a little bit about the story. It's a contemporary romance. It is actually the third book in a series, but each book in the series takes a look at a different couples. So you don't really need to have read any of the previous books as just kind of a group of friends and each group look eight book looks at a different romance. So Dina and Adam meet kind of by happenstance and Dina is a genus. She works in the library. She's very quiet. He's not particularly outgoing and Adam is being opposite. When she sees him. She thinks he's Mr. flashy pants, and he helps her change a tire, and that's how they kind of media other and they happen to work in the same town and run into each other. And eventually they kind of make a bargain or they fall into a bargain, she has to go to her high school. Reunion with his very uncomfortable about and he needs summit to kind of help him improve his reputation. So they kind of agree to help each other out and along the way they fall in love. Yes, they do. So did you have a particular inspiration for the story? I did actually. So Adam is a character who appeared briefly in the other two books. He was more of like, a friend, and he was kind of shallow guy kind of a player. But I always knew I eventually wanted to do something with him. And I wanted to like find his soul and really dig down deep and make him much more have a lot more debts than he portrayed and then kind of figure out. Well, why doesn't he show that often? So he's always been in the back of my mind. But I watch I don't know if anybody else does. But I watched the show criminal nines. And there is a okay. So it's not a murder mystery at all. But there's a character Spencer Reid who is also a genius. And he knows everything about everything anytime, there's you know, he just about facts constantly. And so my character of Dina whenever she's uncomfortable, which happens quite often. See spouse random facts that she knows so at Adam ABI leaning over to kiss her. She gets uncomfortable, and she'll start talking about did, you know, the first kiss was, blah, blah, blah. And so she really kind of provided. So that was my inspiration for her. And then it kind of took off from there. And she was a lot of fun to play with. So what kind of research did you do in terms of Dina's random facts or those in your head already? No, you know, I had to find a lot of things. I did a lot of research on the internet. Thank goodness for Google pretty much any time. There was any situation. I sort of looked at it and said, okay, what conc- pull out of here though, when cmih his father for the first time. He says, very overbearing, and very straitlaced man, very disapproving of everything. And he serves he starts pouring some whisky. So she starts telling him about well, if you laid all the whiskey bottles, and and they would, you know, circle, the globe, however, many times, and so I you know, looked like random facts about whisky and random facts about Huck lit and the first baseball game. And it was just it was a lot of fun to do research about that. Because I don't there's always some. There's always something I need to research. But it's not like, I'm writing an historical romance. Right. Need to research the time period. So you know, I kind of comfortable in where I'm setting the book. So there's not a ton that I have to do I might have to research, you know, some of the profession so I actually did have to look into being the librarian, and what that entails and with more than just selling books. But the researching those facts was very entertaining. I bet I loved all the random facts that she's spewed speaking of random facts, did you know that when you sign up for audible, you get thirty days free trial, and with that thirty days, you get a free audiobook, again, I know I keep saying, but what's not to love a we have been talking about audible, and I haven't talked about how much I love audible.

So I mean, literally in the first sentence that described Dina I was like, Yep. I already like her. I'm gonna like her character doesn't even matter. What she does after this. She's got an armful of books, and she's she works in a library. She is my spirit animal and. That my opinion did not change. She cracked me up. She has some quirks that I am somewhat familiar with maybe not to the extent that DNA has them. But I can completely understand. So I'm gonna stop talking and let Jennifer talk about her own book. So let's go ahead and get started with that interview. Again, the book is learning to love, and it is by Jennifer Wilk. Hi, Jennifer, welcome to the podcast. Hi, sarah. Thanks so much for having me today. We are going to talk about your new book learning to love. But before we get to the book if you could share just a little bit about yourself. So my listeners can get to know you that would be great. Sure, I'm a writer from New Jersey. I am published with the wild rose press. And I also do a little self publishing. I have two teenage daughters. One of whom is in college, one of whom is just about to be I married, and we have a rescue dog who pretty much runs the house pinkie so much for that. So as I said, we are here to talk about your new book learning to love, can you tell us a little bit about the story. It's a contemporary romance. It is actually the third book in a series, but each book in the series takes a look at a different couples. So you don't really need to have read any of the previous books as just kind of a group of friends and each group look eight book looks at a different romance. So Dina and Adam meet kind of by happenstance and Dina is a genus. She works in the library. She's very quiet. He's not particularly outgoing and Adam is being opposite. When she sees him. She thinks he's Mr. flashy pants, and he helps her change a tire, and that's how they kind of media other and they happen to work in the same town and run into each other. And eventually they kind of make a bargain or they fall into a bargain, she has to go to her high school. Reunion with his very uncomfortable about and he needs summit to kind of help him improve his reputation. So they kind of agree to help each other out and along the way they fall in love. Yes, they do. So did you have a particular inspiration for the story? I did actually. So Adam is a character who appeared briefly in the other two books. He was more of like, a friend, and he was kind of shallow guy kind of a player. But I always knew I eventually wanted to do something with him. And I wanted to like find his soul and really dig down deep and make him much more have a lot more debts than he portrayed and then kind of figure out. Well, why doesn't he show that often? So he's always been in the back of my mind. But I watch I don't know if anybody else does. But I watched the show criminal nines. And there is a okay. So it's not a murder mystery at all. But there's a character Spencer Reid who is also a genius. And he knows everything about everything anytime, there's you know, he just about facts constantly. And so my character of Dina whenever she's uncomfortable, which happens quite often. See spouse random facts that she knows so at Adam ABI leaning over to kiss her. She gets uncomfortable, and she'll start talking about did, you know, the first kiss was, blah, blah, blah. And so she really kind of provided. So that was my inspiration for her. And then it kind of took off from there. And she was a lot of fun to play with. So what kind of research did you do in terms of Dina's random facts or those in your head already? No, you know, I had to find a lot of things. I did a lot of research on the internet. Thank goodness for Google pretty much any time. There was any situation. I sort of looked at it and said, okay, what conc- pull out of here though, when cmih his father for the first time. He says, very overbearing, and very straitlaced man, very disapproving of everything. And he serves he starts pouring some whisky. So she starts telling him about well, if you laid all the whiskey bottles, and and they would, you know, circle, the globe, however, many times, and so I you know, looked like random facts about whisky and random facts about Huck lit and the first baseball game. And it was just it was a lot of fun to do research about that. Because I don't there's always some. There's always something I need to research. But it's not like, I'm writing an historical romance. Right. Need to research the time period. So you know, I kind of comfortable in where I'm setting the book. So there's not a ton that I have to do I might have to research, you know, some of the profession so I actually did have to look into being the librarian, and what that entails and with more than just selling books. But the researching those facts was very entertaining. I bet I loved all the random facts that she's spewed speaking of random facts, did you know that when you sign up for audible, you get thirty days free trial, and with that thirty days, you get a free audiobook, again, I know I keep saying, but what's not to love a we have been talking about audible, and I haven't talked about how much I love audible.

"In progression system online only though you can fight against bots in training, and it is a lot of fun as well who works with PS aim controller. And I think they patched it better matchmaking, but people raving about it on the PS VR forms. So boot it up, and I think we're gonna play some this weekend as well to review that. And if you Trump aside, 'cause we're, what was your quickly? What was your opinion of the quest from afar? Oh, I'm going to buy the shit outta that thing. You're bored. Yeah. I know a lot of people criticize how I was not enthused about the go launch last year. I'm all in on this device. Is it the convenience. After I don't think they even finished seeing six off and I was in, I just think that kind of motion that freedom emotion is makes all the difference in the world. Yeah, it's going to be tricky to bring some of the riff titles down to it, but I know loot noticing what can be done. I think for people who are familiar with the are very bought into the are when they heard the four hundred dollars, we were all ecstatic. Yes, a fantastic price. I think it's still going to be a tough sell for people have not experienced VR because of that. And they're going to say. I have a phone. Why can I buy one of those little phone sleeves and promote my face and get my quote, unquote, VR content, or you have a two hundred dollar thing. I can. I just buy that and it's a lot of it's going to be in that messaging as long as is the story is the hardware is selling the are, as opposed to the games on their contents v are those people are always going to have that that situation. What do you think the killer app for this. Yeah, that's a very good question. I don't think we've played it yet. Whoa. I mean that meaning it's not super hotter or tennis scramble like, but you don't think it could be a port of like, you don't think. No recall for quests could be a killer up. I don't know about that. Was it a killer app for rift? I think a lot of people liked it as a killer app for touch. Okay. It's solo being pack in. Yeah, free game to get hand. Presence is definitely Salata game for me. Echo arena was the first killer app for VR. Like I would bought a rift to play that on, not sure what it will be for this. I bet that it will be there though. Fifty games that's a lot. I think that we're also talking about for games that people can either get into and maybe our people don't have the VR legs yet what everyone who's listening to this thinking. It's beat sabre. Oh, there you go. That's right. There you go. That's actually, right. You're right, totally. And you've seen the tweet, right? They asked to beat sabre developers, aren't they listed? And they're like rolling their eyes like, don't worry, don't worry. Yeah. Yeah, beat saver. There you go. Beat saver will be the killer four hundred dollars pizza. And until their point, I think a game platformer game like Ashra bot I think it's gonna peel to people with your legs without your legs, and it really is a type of experience. It may. Not make the most out of VR and we'll be as immersive as a. Like a loan echo or or win Lund's to in terms of the things that you can't do it bridges that gap in showing you a new type of gaming. And I think that's it. All right. We wrapped up just over an hour. Could come find us at New York comic con, what's right? We will be there.

Rob go on the oh cell signal other cells. And then according to Dan cook, you sent the number with the last digit not available that is correct. Yeah. Interrupdate for me. What can I tell you? I've done that before about the Dunkin donuts. Yes, I just can't even get under control Dunkin donuts. I get your coffee is great. Okay. But your calling card shocker. Know like the word donuts is so distracting realize Ed croissants as well. We realized they were beverages there. I literally just thought it was a rack. It was time to make the doughnuts. The guy put a couple of crawlers up there. And that was it. I think we should should go in there and say, yeah. Eggs benedict. Right. How about a steak? I mean Carter what else should we try to get anything that dunk -able? I mean, it's Dunkin. Yeah. So if it's not Dunkel blow it up is what I said just forget it shot it down. Okay. Speaking of dunk bowl. I don't know if you've had a Jimmy Butler citing today, but growth lifetime right, but Monday, he's literally down below working out while his teammates are I mean like right next to posing for pictures. It's basically the double middle finger tips, then he's in my town yesterday at the lifetime in Plymouth where should Jimmy I need tax. And I need Adams important yours Jason where should Jimmy go today as he's learning more about the town that he's about to be waste, basically trolling the timber wolves. I have a Walker, and it goes to walk or maybe poses for pictures right there. I'd like to see them go down to Des Moines and play with the G league will stay. Well. They'd be. Pretty good team. Maybe Justin Paton. Yeah. Well, the the injured constant injury. Well, maybe square they can give them some new feet because right now, it's not working out. What are you gonna what do you do about the Jimmy Marquette? Did they teach this behavior? Mark. Should reach out to your fellow. I was chief in line of the Jimmy Butler Bobo is that was all over at. Well, what are you? You're not the warriors anymore. The golden eagles. Golden eagles Carter where would you like to see Jimmy today as he's I think go over to the wild practice. On the logo. No embrace the wild logo. But then they show your wolves logo. And he steps right on that. I like it. Team where their mascot is the wolves. That would be good. Yeah. Dame akasa. He goes he goes to Calhoun. He's right there. Little pickup game. Right. He lives out west. Maybe he's on lake Minnetonka Jimmy's. Just by the way, he was so injured he couldn't be of any wolves workout. But he's avid the afternoon. Ron with the crew that I don't know in Plymouth if it's early in the day, the folks aren't working or it said lifetime at noon, and they they got a little break. Here's the thing. Nobody thinks that Jimmy Butler just decided last week that he didn't want to be with the walls. No cabs, and maybe to a lesser degree the general manager, Scott Layden. Had to be in an incredible amount of denial all summer for sure. Is on them. I think the the fact that there is no leverage for the team to get any sort of a good deal. Now one hundred percent of working this all summer right in Jonkers Inskeep has reported that even some of the falling out started as clear as they they lose to Houston game five nobody's gonna fly back. They're gonna have their team meeting and review this season. We'll Jimmy fluid different plane and he went Delhi. And then that when he and Tibbs talked a couple times during the year. It was clear either you clear out in a normal amount of money can give me more money or I'm not going to go the idea that this just sprung upon him out of nowhere away. Is is foolish. Yeah. And I also don't buy into all of that nonsense that I it has to be by on. Everybody has to love each other. Like, you know, you. I was too much cab. They don't have to get along. I don't care. I don't think they care if they're winning. No, one cares. They don't. But if you have a guy who has previous stop in Chicago did the exact same thing. And then he comes here and he's publicly and then through coaching issue, though. Where like if you're the coach, you know, and I think I I don't remember which article I read maybe it was the FBI thematic. Yup. Where it went through all of the times that Tibbs was on cats gays in Wiggins gays, but never Jimmy's gaze for any of the things that Jimmy was during the same issue. Well, that that's a very fair point. And in fact, I mean Jimmy Butler never called Jamal Crawford. I think you maybe could could call out Jimmy could score on Crawford. Another thing we got twenty seconds. Here. Tips would say, well, he doesn't talk. Well, Joe colleagues. Very good reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times affect he's based here. But Jimmy and Joe. We have a very good relationship. When Colley was writing all these things about polar to act like that was wasn't from information on background. I've got some ocean front property to sell employment. If don't believe that all right. Skip Dunkin donuts skip Weight Watchers, maybe about about an in home manicure through throughout the rest of the day. And that's a great idea.
