"That's i don't know of other people feel that way. But that's that's how. I felt when i heard about it so sorry if i get in trouble over the answer. Maybe we'll have to cut this office. I feel i feel like i feel like they from the outside feels like their their hands. Were tied did so well for them. But i think the conditions for why it did so well are somewhat out of their hands like the guys were the only game in town. You were the first game in town and the and the level of play was like you said even though it was beginning season surprisingly it ramped up it started off a little rough but then it got going whereas you got into the knockout rounds. It was it was topped here but this season there are going to be a lot of other options on television. There's there's there's other soccer that's going on internationally. So it's a little bit different and i think i was going to bring up the open cup. I think something like that. What would be awesome. But in the men's game. Right now i think. I think they have concacaf champions league quarterfinals. Before the week starts ten games ten so same thing drew running into the league but then having what is conceivably supposedly of a high level prize in a knockout situation. How are we to have they're going to perform. Why does the us never win. Concacaf champions league. I don't know could be connected. You just kinda hit the nail on the head with like if it's supposed to be something that's very prestigious and impactful wiry throwing it in somewhere where it doesn't belong But happy to be here. Have have i show when they told me i am very excited to play. And i'm very for people to watch us. And i think like regardless of other things being on tv still think like people are gonna are pumped about the league back. They're going to be shooting in. So i'm very very excited about that And also yeah. I'm that's not my job. I'm doing my job is to play in a. It's probably a good thing. That i do not run the because i would not be having the creative ideas to to do those things in general and i also be totally wrong like the whole challenge of could be a great feudal thing. I was very skeptical. The first one. But again. I i want to play and it went awesome. So we'll say we'll go. Ritchie seems to richie seems to share a little bit. Your feelings about we're gonna we're gonna. We're gonna walk into this tournament. We're not gonna we're not gonna sprint having the same eleven every game because we have a long season ahead so i think he. I think you guys are on. I think you guys are on similar. Wavelengths and i would i would love it i. I am a huge open cup fan. When it comes on the men's side. I would love to watch. I would eat up a open cup on the women's side as well so i hope maybe it can evolve into that. That would be great. I mean we need more team buzzer. The pyramid has to grow a little bit. I think we're it's good so we've got two questions from from the fans we want to before we close again. Thank you so much for taking the time so so long that the sun the sun went away during the interview. Turn all right all right. That's where gift of your time..

"Even in years past when there was a big record discrepancy between team won north carolina. You team seventy nine That those games were always close and they were intense. And i don't think that's a now it's it always feels like any team can win any given day and it's really incredible and i think that now it feels like any team can finish in place and i think that just speaks to the league in so many different ways in especially if the resiliency of the players. That's that's what i think and The investment into teams Across the board. So it's exciting. I do think there's gonna be a shakeup And there's a lot of player movement to outside of that. So i think every year you have to kind of you you think some thirteen you forget that you know. They were traded or loaned or something like that to different state on the other. That's always possible not too so i'm excited. It's definitely looking forward to I mean it's called challenge is totally different totally demonstration but definitely look just looking for two games reported seeing everybody play and sizing up the competition and I'm glad you brought up sort of the the. The fact of the challenge cup is going to be again this year. I think that was kind of. I feel like end of so was like maybe the one sports league that actually like despite everything in two thousand twenty they. They grew Tremendously and i think the challenge cup was part of that. What do you think about you know you experienced. You know. unfortunately you did get hurt but you didn't get to sort of experienced that whole That that tournament out in salt lake. what i guess what. What are your thoughts on. Sort of the idea of this continuing. Are you excited about it. is it something different that not a lot of other leagues are doing What were your thoughts when you found out. Oh we're going to be doing this. This tournament style. Sort of you know in the future and do there need to be a playground also or whatever i think that's just a regular feature now we had we had one of our fall series To keep the tradition alive. I don't know if i'm gonna get in trouble for this answer. But i feel like i am a little opinionated on this and.

"Think with the tweaks. It's more like details and so it's like okay in this situation you played it safe and like i know. Sometimes you're the one for your team who plays plays it safe and like the rhythm but what if you did this And so. I don't necessarily feel like oh you have to do this or it's nothing it's always like. Can you recognize these things. It's more like questions to get you to re evaluate your choices and you've ideas in the game lead at least let's off how i see it. a navy. That's how i helped manage those two things philosophy professor. It sounds like it's it's not. It's much more discreet less discreet than more. Like i want to see how your brain wraps around the issue rather that's gonna eat. Yeah i just wanted to ask a lot of a lot of players A lot of players are are making the the jump over to europe across the pond as they say As that's something that you know you've thought about or something that interests. You may be down the road. Obviously we want to see you here as long as possible but You know that that thought had i imagine that thought has crossed your mind. So where do you see. Do you see that being a possibility. That's a good question i to be up front. I love it here. And i'm very happy to be home so i i don't see myself going across the pond anytime soon But it's definitely something in the back of my mind because you that picture could could always change Based on what's going on here what's going on there. What's what do i need to do to improve And also i think it is something that i would like to do in my playing career just because i think it's a cool way to experience parts worlds to you know to get to work and live else not just visit for a week And yet like going back to the philosophy you just change how you think about the game and also how you see the world and i i would love to get to travel to other places in play different styles and live in a different place so It's i would say it's more in the back of my mind than the front but it's it's always a possibility and the short loans are perfect for it. It's almost like a semester study abroad situation. I mean again. I reiterate from ted. I don't want you to leave but if you were. Those short wants seem to work out well for everybody..

I just tried to act as i would no matter what and i don't feel like i change my behavior whether it had the armband or not i just I kind of referenced earlier. Like i just wanna show up every day and be my best and make the team veteran team win. So whatever capacity whatever role. I need to fail to do that. i'll do that. And if if i'm the right role to be the captain for the team great and if i'm not great it doesn't it doesn't matter to me so I shouldn't i shouldn't say it doesn't matter to me. That sounds bad. But you know what. I what i'm trying to say. Absolutely you mentioned playing with rose again on the national team is a question. That always comes up whenever i think about the. Us women's national team. How challenging is it to stay in the frame of the most competitive in best team in the world Place extra pressure on you during your club season i think every player. They know they're being watched. They know that on a week to week basis. How their levels go and drop in. And and and pique matter to coaches as far as call ups. But how much does that like on. A you know you're thinking about this week. Yoga gained got a game plan. Watch video prepare. But also there's a call a call up window no coming up here and i wanna make sure that i put my best foot forward. How what's it like to balance those two things but particularly when the it's the competition is so incredibly high. Yeah i mean it's obviously been. It's been difficult for me to stay in the fold. Everyone knows. I've been in and out whether they injuries or do you know my own performance and it's tough..

I have like you know i had very minimal. Range of motion is pretty uncomfortable but it was playing with roses so much fun. And i love playing with rose so It's it's sad to thing about that. I mean we'll hope. I'm hoping we'll play together more in the future In the net with the national team or somehow our cats cross you know on another team of the future. I would love that. Because she's just a joy to play with and we have a lot of fun together on and off the field sort of a fun question based on your rehab in sacramento. I have a feeling that are that my diet and the diet of a professional athlete are not the same however having lived in sacramento for a couple of years. What was your favorite place to eat.

We can touch base. We don't i don't wanna take up the whole interview recommendations. I said yeah. I'm pretty sure. Richie burke is happy. Happy to hear maybe the meatball moxie wasn't cable. I have no idea what it is off season. It's people talk. But i do wanna ask your you know. As one of the veteran players you came in under that coaching change From from you know. I can't even remember who the less coach was. But i do know. Richie burke was a new coach coming in i. What what you know. He definitely brings his own personality to the game. Say the lease get. what what. What was that change. Sort of like And you know he also named captain so talk a little bit about what that that was like. Well yeah that was very surprising to that point. This is only second year player.

Yeah and in fact like the the voice over in the movie which is bellas voice. It's like her diary. Which kind of goes along with that teenage angsty like this is my journal. Kind of vibe really works.

Doing magic to you. Put it into your computer. In though this whole software that you navigate through and would lend tricks that. I remember the bouncing bread roll and also the beginning tricks and then. Interestingly keith was one of the best lecturers i sold so it's Yet to me he feels was the world's most famous magician. Because i just saw him everywhere as landing magic and the years i started to To invest more in magic and tony moments was actually some of the first books that i bought and i sort advertising the small lance in a local newspaper. A local magician was selling the author astonishment ninety pounds which i think is probably more expensive than they are now and i went to his house and i bought them from him and didn't understand much of it but Now i study those books often often and they will amongst my first.

Magician's Release of "6 Impossible Things" by Joshua Jay Coming Soon
"You talk a little bit about six impossible things. How was it structured which tricks from your repertoire. Way performing and from joshua costin's. I read somewhere that will be a magician's release of justice. Six impossible things. When can we expect this that you would ask. Let me try and take those impart. So how is the show structured. This was really fun. This this was an experiential magic show so basically people come to a basement in manhattan. They sit in a circle. I'm know her in the room. The lights go out in the year. My voice and that's how the show starts. The first trick is done in the dark and in the raft. Then they get up they walk to another room and the next week is done standing and surrounded then they go into another room and they sit and they watch more and more or less than a standard magic show way we go in six different environments to put magic in the best environment. It's suited for so. That's the format. Is there any tricks from That's the cool part Virtually every trick except for one was custom designed for that show which is sad for me. Because i can't really use the stuff of it. The one and a half exceptions to that are if you're familiar with my trojan detrick. Where i shuffle the deck and bay shuffle a deck and all the cards match. We found a way to do that on the floor. In the round in the show it looked really cool and the other Happy trick out of that is If you've seen me do the t shirt trick where. I write stuff on the t shirt and some magic thing happened. That was developed four. Six boss will things. But i've done television. I do live in my shows now. So that's as to when it's coming out. It's a win. But i earned element along with a lot of additional content.

‘Deaf U’ shows the realities of Washington, DC college students who are hard of hearing
"Students as they deal with dating friendship and finding their way in the world. And what sets this show apart from the usual hookup show on college campuses is that it takes place at Gallaudet University in Washington, D. C. That's a private college for the deaf and hard of hearing. The characters are all deaf or hard of hearing, and they mainly speak in American sign language. One notable exception is Rodney Burford, who has a cochlear implant and acts as a sort of interpreter for the hearing audience. People is difficult. It'll behalf people where they could talk. You have that people who used to talk about a deal talking and then you have people who know they can't so they just cleaned Rodney plays football for Gallaudet and describes himself as the bad boy of the cast. And he joins us Now. Hi. Hey, how you doing? I'm doing Well, thank you. Also Joining us is the executive producer of deaf You Nyle DiMarco, who, by the way 1 2015 Season of America's next top novel and the 2016 season of dancing with the Stars and Nile is joining us via his interpreter, Grace and Van Pelt. So the voice you hear will be Graysons. Welcome to the show Nile. Hi. It's a pleasure to be here. Thanks so much for having us today. It's great to have all of you know, Let's let's begin with you. You are an alum of Gallaudet. Why did you want to do or produce A TV show about your university. I think it really goes all the way back to the beginning, Which was my time on America's next top model and insolent stars so often being the only deaf person on a reality TV show left me with Ah, very sort of simplistic label. I was very one dimensional or cast that we have in spring. I was never really ask questions specific to maybe what I like. But I didn't like, or any sort of story that I brought to the table is a person. Andi thought there was a big flaw within the reality TV world s O. I came with the idea that I wanted to really spotlight students a deaf you Who are almost all completely deaf in college, but are experiencing the same things that every other college student would there facing decisions that every college student has to you. They're making the mistakes that are fairly typical and amazing. Things happened on that campus. I thought it was a wonderful entry point for getting people at home is an audience to see that People are just like everybody else. So it's a part of it is educating the broader public on what it's like to be deaf, right? And making that obviously a big part of the show. Not just saying, Oh, by the way, I'm deaf, but deaf. Being deaf is the central element. In life at Gallaudet and on the show. Absolutely Rodney, You are one of the stars of the show. And you are in various different love triangles are larger than triangles, squares. Rectangles pentagrams? I don't know. But you seem to have a very active love life. What is it like for you to be part of the show while going to school like l a debt? To be honest, it was just the same for me. Just accept the cameras for only me and change myself. I would live just living my life. But every part of my life was just being documented. Yeah, so, but it must be kind of weird to be Tohave every aspect of your life documented. Yeah, you could say that, Especially the more intimate moments. Right? Niles? Tell me why you want to focus so much on the romance. I mean, obviously, it's exciting and fun to watch. But why? Why is that a central part of the show? I think romance is such a universal feeling. You know, we really crave the feeling of being in love and You know, I think that's something that is so typical of the college experience, and we really truly felt that that was the perfect entry point for the hearing audience at home. To really make a connection to these cast members is deaf people right, but also is just equal members of society. And that was really our strategy. There is Rodney a lot of
The Queen's Gambit (Netflix Mini-Series 2020)
"Still in their top five I remember correctly. Is the queen's gambit. It was number one don't know where it is. Right now. I still think it's the number one show streaming right now on the streamer, but it is about the orphan who becomes A chess Phanom. And she learns chess from the maintenance man downstairs in the orphanage and her life. Just kind of goes from there, and I'm keeping it purposely broad, cause I so want you and I've been I've been guilty of Oversharing and I want to I want you guys to Kind of unfold the show for yourself because that's that's part of the magic of it, because it's so gosh darn good. We talked about it last week. Alexis is back and you watched it a cz. Well, I watched everything. Jeez, I could not stop watching it. And they binged it in four days. Completely just watched the whole thing. It's about what we did. Yeah, I'm with you. Oh, man. It is so good. Now I don't know much about chess. So I think that if you do love chess, you'll even get more in terms of the moves because they really had a really cool way of showing how they do it with the shadows of the ponds and the different You know pieces and then the boards. You know how they do the different moves. And what did the bishop do? And you know all of that, And there's all of these different ways to come at it. You know, different theories and thiss guy does it this way, and he always moves this first and so That was kind of lost on me. But it just It was such a great story and a great reminder that if you want to be the best at what you dio, it takes a lot of hard work a lot of dedication. And also trying around it. Right and remembering the people around. You mean I think about LeBron James and Michael Jordan. Serena Williams. Now, of course, this is in the sports world. Tom Brady, You know, like you are a goat. You really do need to work. You know, they're not out partying and having fun, And that's kind of the same case with the in the Queen's gambit, she Beth. She's just really focused on her goal of being the best chess player. I love that she didn't really focus on her gender, but the media did. And but it's still a hard world to be in when it's all it's all men like, generally older sixties in the fifties and sixties, So you know at the time it's during the Cold War. There's already tensions between the U. S and the Soviet Union already at that time, and then the best chess players come from the Soviet Union. So it was really reflective of the time to mean just in a chess game, So I really like that. I like the full circle aspect of the story toward the end. Again. I don't want to give too much away like you, said Jace. But itjust they answer a lot of questions that you may have as you're watching it and satisfying answers. I see what Yeah, yeah. Don. Where are you? I am just finished Episode four They're going to attack a lot into each episode, though. I mean, even by the end of the first one, you're like, Whoa. This is like a full movie. I just watched her. That's so true, Don. Yeah. In the anime pack a lot in. I mean so much. It's like the opposite of what they did with blind manner, not enough material that they snatched into. Ah, really long boring. Story That was way too many episodes. This is very efficient and I love the writing. You get to know her and what she's all about, Really? Not necessarily through the dialogue, but what they show you. Yes. Great writing, Thie. Other thing. It's the fashion one. Everything she wore. This will be nominated for costume design. Don't you think? Absolutely, without a doubt, the production design and the wardrobe. They're They're co stars. They're they're absolute co stars, and she carries it. She carries it so well, those clothes you know that old saying the the clothes don't wear you. You wear the clothes. She wears those clothes girl. I mean, she capital. W wears out, though, that wardrobe and Well, I just want to be her and Lex. I don't know if you felt this way, said this to dawn last week in the most complimentary way possible. I was sad. I was sad at the conclusion not because of the conclusion, but because I wanted more time with Beth, I interesting. I don't often have that reaction to characters. Um, you know, like Star Wars. I just, You know, I want to hang out with Ray and I want to know what's happening and all that stuff. But I really I'm sad that I'm not going to be invited in her world anymore. Well, that's what I was going to ask you because it does look like maybe a season two is in the works. Really? Yeah. There at least floating the idea around what it could be. Will they bring it back for a second season s wires asking that and It's not renewed. Of course, there's no news about that. But this next season would dive into her love life, her family history, that type of thing. I had the opposite reaction. I feel like this miniseries. It was perfect. In the way that they told it. I don't know if I need to know more. I love I love how it ended, and just That's great. Yeah, I'm not saying I want it because they'll mess it up, right? That's what I'm worried about. Yeah, I It's like big little lives. You know, the first was based on a book and that was near perfect. And then you went back, and you basically forced the author to create another story in a short amount of time. And you know, it wasn't a natural process. You gave the A writer. A hard deadline. I don't think you know. Not all. Not all creatives work well with that s O this. Yeah, but I was Muchas. I'm sad for that desire to him, Not with her. I would rather have that than an unsatisfying Sequel Hard to beat that this is Yeah, because this is just a compliment. I I miss her. I want to know what she's doing, but I'll rely on my imagination for that, and I'm fine. It's just It's just a huge compliment to the writer of the novel into the two the creatives behind this miniseries. They did such a good job that they made me want, Maura and that Whatmore could you ask for with a creative endeavor? You know Jerry Seinfeld, No one to get off the stage. They're off the stage and I miss her because she's so freaking cool. I want to have with her. I want her to be my friend. And then I want to steal all of her clothes. Be nude. That's not nice. Other things, didn't you guys? Yeah, No kidding. Just gorgeous. Benny Watts. The character who the guy who plays many Watts, Thomas Brody Stang stur. Yeah, He's that kid from love, Actually, Yeah. Grew up guys. He looks exactly the same thing just looks like someone pulled them from his head. Hold his legs and to stretch them a little bit. Was he also in finding Neverland with Johnny Depp? Yes, I think so. The writer of Peter Pan. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but it just looks like someone stretched him. You had put a mustache auto. And then the other kid is from Harry Potter. Yes, friend of her selling. Is Perry's cousin, His awful cousin that he lives with. Yeah, deadly Douglas. Yeah, and he's the other person and I just like I said this to dawn. I just like that the old you know, one of the themes that I realized after the fact is really about loneliness, you know, Beth the character and we're talking queen's gambit as we wrap it up here on Netflix. You know, it's a great lesson where sometimes you just see what's right in front of your face. And Beth did that. Beth was guilty of thinking that she was very alone. She was on ly kind of looking within just a few inches of her face. But if she just looked around She just looked a little bit to her left and right. She realized she really wasn't alone. And I think that's a good universal lesson for all of us that sometimes when we do feel very isolated and alone where we really are not, itjust takes Takes a moment to look around. And Beth really was Beth her whole life and, understandably, so she felt alone. But she really never wasn't. She always had people that was rooting for her, but she just never internally felt that way. Andi. I've found that fascinating to examine in that show. So the Queen's gambit everybody on Netflix If you haven't it, it's
Ethiopia to replace Tigray region leadership as forces clash
"Let's move to Ethiopia, which is currently technically in a state of civil war. On Thursday, the Ethiopian military and officials in the northern Tigre region accused each other of instigating a civil conflict that has seen fighting between government soldiers and troops loyal to the regional administration. In a televised address early on Wednesday, Ethiopia's prime minister Abbiamo accused the local government of attacking federal troops, and he said the region's ruling party, the Tigre, People's Liberation Front, or TPLF, were traitors. We're going to the National Defense Force that has been in the bunkers for the past 20, plus years defending its people and the country by paying heavy sacrifices with its blood and flesh has been attacked this evening in Michael. And many other places by traders and the force they organized. The army has been attacked from behind by its own citizens, and many have been martyred, wounded and properties destroyed. This force of destruction has been engaged in many counterproductive activities for the past many months. The regional president of Tigre. Debra Montgomery kill, has described the actions of the military as an invasion were joined on the line out from Addis Ababa by William Davison. He's a senior analyst on Ethiopia for the International Crisis Group. Thank you for joining us. What's the latest that you're hearing how many casualties in the fighting? Well, actually, the number of casualties of fatalities is one of the things that is not clear. There is still a communications blackout across Tigre. But there are certainly casualties being reported from the hospital visits and outside the thing. Essentially, we have an active conflict, a CZ you've clearly described in the introduction. The fighting has been concentrated in West too great so far has bean incursions by the federal military from West agree that Paul is the horror region on horror regions. Forces have also been involved. To some extent. I think it's worth noting that degrades main supply route would be through West a great and into Eastern sedan reported on so that perhaps explains the focus of that fighting, and we've also seen small search skirmishes around medically. To grace capital and in the last day or so, that is involved air strikes by the federal military to try and take out military installations around metal. And that really indicates a major problem here, which is that part of the federal military appeared to be siding with a great vision. Can you explain a little bit of background to this? Why has this situation been allowed to reach to this state of hostility? Well, I mean offices that there's a very long political background to great region has a long history of autonomy to the central government, as well as being involved in central politics. More recently, TPLF was the preeminent party, the ruling coalition that lasted essentially until 2018 when Communist at the Army came to power. No off. He took power on the tplf. They lost a lot off their federal positions and power. And there were all sorts of accusations traded back and forth allegations of destabilization as we've heard what's on the TPL aside. They said that they were unfairly targeted prosecutions by the federal government and also discrimination and marginalization More general Then there was the creation of a national ruling party by prime minister Beyond the TPLF objected to that, Andi they sat it out, became formerly part of the opposition this year. This is evolved into an electoral dispute at the constitutional disputes. The federal government tried to extend all government terms when it delayed elections due to covered 19 Tigre opposed us. They run their own poll and that lets the federal government describing Tigre is government is unlawful and takeaways Government government, saying the federal government had overstayed its constitutional mandate. That is the buildup to the conflict We have now and William, you're seeing evidence now that the military in Tigre is siding with the Local government. Is that right? Yes, That's right. Like I say, information blackout. I can't be sure of exactly what's occurring on the ground. But yesterday, the federal government says that the military the air force to try to take out missile launches on missiles. Now that is Ethiopian military hardware. So that suggests either elements of what is called the Northern Command a very powerful units of Egypt's military that has been fighting the war on manning the border with Eritrea that suggested either elements Since there have defected or otherwise under the control of the secret leadership. Otherwise, the air Force would not be bombing those installations. This is a major piece of the puzzle in terms of the balance of power here, and it suggests that we could be entering a protracted conflict that is a conflict that is likely to escalate, it could destabilize Ethiopia and its armed forces it could bring in Eritrea. And it could generally destabilize the entire region. This is why dialogue and some form of talks is absolutely in Paris, and
A record number of women will serve in Congress
"Of uncertainty followed Tuesday's vote. One thing definitely stood out, and that is a record number of GOP women who have been voted into congressional seats. Let's get into it. With our own Rebecca Greenfield. She wrote the story. She leads diversity coverage here at Bloomberg. She joins us on the phone, as does Bloomberg BusinessWeek editor Jill Weber. She he's on the Axis line in Brooklyn. So let's set it off. Set it up with you. I mean, there's obviously we're focusing on the outcome. But there again a lot of moving parts to this tons of other storylines and the blue wave. There was so much anticipation of And it remains to be determined if that will end up taking it out. Maybe, but regardless of that there was something of a red fortress. And the most dramatic part to me with this note that you know Rebecca hit in her story about the number of GOP women in Congress actually reaching a record. How significant was that, Rebecca? Because, you know, the other thing that you're saying here is that they had very little GOP official support. Yeah, I would say was, you know many way I don't want to overstate what happened. Republicans. The men will have 32 members heading to converse, at least as of me right now, Alfa enough that they're a record number of women heading to Congress this year, which I think The huge storyline in the mid term, But nobody seems to be backing out now, so there is a record number of women both party like together the parties, But yet the GOP just have much left gender diversity is on the Democrats. D'oh. Andi, so their record breaking number as much smaller, but they didn't break the record that cycle, and I do think that is notable.
Where do things stand with the 2020 Presidential Election?
"Three day just give us an opportunity here for Luna reset and tell you what's gonna happen. The states that are still being contested, are Wisconsin. Michigan. Pennsylvania. North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, those seven states. Throughout the day, Biden took the lead in Wisconsin and Michigan. And he's nibbled away at the lead that Trump has in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and in Georgia. No new results in Arizona or Nevada now reported. On what? I understand. Nevada is no longer counting tonight. There. No, they they've been counting, but they're not going to release the numbers. They were supposed to release him at five Pacific. And then they said, no, no, no, We're going to wait till nine AM Lou and I laid out at three o'clock. Ah, couple things as it relates to the election integrity side of of the issues, and there have been some legal developments in the past hour and a half. But what is the path to victory? Let's suppose that biting gets Wisconsin and Michigan just give it to him. OK, give Wisconsin and Michigan Blue. Let's 2 53 to 17. Okay, give in North Carolina. Trump has to win those two, where he's leading in both states in North Carolina. Most people agree he's got it. In Georgia. It's going to be awfully close. Ah, but he's currently UPIN. The trend has been in some of these counties decent for him enough to to win. And the trend with Caroline and Georgia. Okay, So now we have left. So we had to 53 for Biden to 48 for Trump with Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona, Outstanding. Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona Pencil Trump was leading right now. Arizona is down, but I've looked at is the argument that the Trump campaign's making an Arizona GOP officials are making that Arizona is likely to go to Trump. Because of the nature of where their their final ballots air from that they haven't counted yet. I find it persuasive, and it's why on Lee Fox and AP have called Arizona for Joe Biden. The other networks have not called Arizona who ABC call for Arizona and then retracted and put it back into include too close to call around 10 o'clock this morning Pacific time yet so Arizona could very well go to trump. Andi. I expect it probably will. Nevada also could go to trump. It is only in 7500 vote difference. And you know, the pool of voters up there have shown that they're much closer. Ah, and Trump, you know much better than people expected so Let's just for a moment, I assume He gets Pennsylvania. That's 2 68 at that point, not to say all he needs is either Nevada or Arizona. So either Arizona or Nevada and he wins. Um, it's a tight lane for him to drive through. He's gotta first button down Georgia. He's probably gonna get North Carolina. Then he's got, you know, win in Pennsylvania, and then he's gotta win either Nevada or Arizona. In Michigan and Wisconsin. I'm not saying that it's impossible for him to win. I'm just saying that The vote tallies. There seem to be moving away from him. I know this is a This is a not an easier lane, but it's easier than trying to win back Wisconsin at this point, even with a recount. And and that's what we know is happening. George W. Bush won in 2000 because he was up, all right, the Democrats Are running the vote counts in these states, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin. Um, in Nevada. I believe what they're trying to do is whatever it takes. Let's get him above Trump. And if that means we slow count these things over here. I wouldn't put it past them again. We've seen shenanigans in the past. We already have documented shenanigans that are very concerning. But for our Democrats out, there are Republicans. I want the Democrats to have an open mind to allegations and say Yes, let's let's investigate because we want whoever wins president In this case, it would be your guy Biden to be free of any taint. Okay. We want to know that whoever won won fair and square we investigated any allegations. We put him to Raskin. We want For Republicans. I want you to be open to the notion that maybe Trump lost, Okay, We want all the legal votes to be counted and this has always been a close race. The media's been against the president. They've lied about him. Bayan outspend him. On so there may be of legal votes that air finally counted fully counted. The president may come up short. So I want you to be open to that as well. That is the agreement, but I think we should move forward on. But it's not inappropriate for Trump to demand an investigation or to file a lawsuit. The media's treating Trump is, though how dare you rip our fabric of democracy apart? There are some really suspicious things going on with the vote counts and the votes that we are calculating and tabulating Eso either we resolve it now. With a full and open and transparent investigation with a court process where judge gets to decide or you're going to sit with four years of a divided country Now, you may not mind that because you guys were great at dividing the country, but we would like actually like to do an investigation. We'd like to go through the process. Vette and argue about certain ballots and present the case. And if the judges and the Supreme Court says no, it's it's it is what it is. And that's what judges usually do. Loo they usually are like, Look, I'm going there on the side of counting ballots, not kicking him out. That's the process we should go through. And so anyone in the media that wants to shut that down go back in your hole. You've been telling us that there was going to a landslide for six months. You have no credibility, even lying about things all along. OK, you have no right to sit there and criticize people who say We would like to have a second set of eyes and a review process that the court can engage in. I got the burden of proof is on Trump. OK, let him have his burden of proof. The burden of proof is on trump and there is serious evidence out there. I mean, you know, the Internet and social media is filled with examples of things If they are anywhere close to true would be certainly worthy of Ah, very deeper investigation, so No, I think that if people keep their minds open to Some of the things that we've seen were the investigation. I think we'll move forward as a country with a little bit better. And and then you have nothing to lose by investigating up and by the way, the vote tally that did come in was Michigan. Moved binding up another 20,000 votes, and, you know, in terms of his lead, so that was the latest number that just got put up, Okay,
Donald Trump takes on Joe Biden in tight presidential race
"Think that the there's no doubt that Donald Trump outperformed or Joe Biden underperformed. However, you wanna put it what the Pre election predictions were and I think at least one of the explanations is that Trump had years. To organize the ground game. He had a database that included millions and millions of millions of things described he was to maximize turnout of his core supporters. Andi. He did it and that upended some of the polling because they clearly did not anticipate how effective the Trump Organization with the That's another factor clearly was covert fatigue. You know, it's Trump went around the country and said all we want to talk about his Kobe, Kobe, Kobe, let's get past it touched a nerve with a lot of Americans. They are sick and tired of wearing masks, and they're sick and tired of Not seeing their grandkids and they're sick and tired of working from home all day in their pajamas. And so I I think he ran ah, very effective campaigns or again that as I look at the map, I still think Joe Biden is going to squeak out a victory. It's entirely possible if states break in a certain way that he'll have exactly 270 electoral votes, meaning that he'll win by one vote. If he loses Pennsylvania, But he's won. Arizona keeps Nevada that's what you'll have is 270. So it's very, very close. But Trump's certainly defined a lot of expectations. Yeah, I've heard it could be 2 69 to 69. Then do we get the courts involved? Let me go back to something that you talked about. And that's the strategy for President Trump, didn't he? D'oh? What he did in 2016 to reinvigorate his base in the very end the last two weeks and some very small counties in those battleground states, while by maybe kind of did with Hillary Clinton did at the very end, and that was Think he had more votes than he did in those key places. Well, I think your analogy is reasonable. Clearly the dynamism the energy in the last few weeks was with Trump. Those rallies. He always had a theory that these rallies not only would bring people out, but let's remember the magnetic appeal that folks watching those rallies on TV or seeing clips of them on on their computers would feel a sense of Momenta MME. And when you contrast that now the difference, of course, was Hillary was kind of smug and self and complacent. Biden, I don't think was complacent, but they I think they looking back. They made a big mistake in thinking that if they played by all the rules of social distancing and having very few rallies and very few events that somehow people would admire them for doing that, when in the end I think he played into the stereotype of sleepy Joe, lacking energy and lacking dynamism, and the contrast in the last few weeks was quite striking on a very visceral level. You know, having settle this? I still think the odds favor If you look at the map There's only one state one that has wrote it differently from 2016. And that is on that is Arizona on and Why didn't I think if you look at the uncounted ballots is likely to win Wisconsin and likely to win Michigan, which is just enough for him. I think he's going to lose Pennsylvania. The only other wild card that I see here is Nevada. If buying loses in a violent and Trump is going to be president. But if Biden wins Nevada that's going to be president,
Athletic director: Wisconsin has 22 positive COVID-19 cases
"In the Wisconsin Badgers football program is growing, athletic director Barry Alvarez told ESPN College GameDay this morning at 22. People have now tested positive up from 16 yesterday. Alvarez also says there have been discussions about shortening a 21 Day waiting period. Players who test positive. I think several athletic directors have looked at that number. Andi thought it was a little high, but none of us are doctors. It's not our decision to make. It's that's for our medical professionals to make and I'm sure we'll take a look at the school will decide by Tuesday whether or not to complain next Saturday against Purdue that
Retirement in America in 2020
"Happy to bring onto the program. Dr Ken Dike Wall, the founder and CEO of age wave. Can just keynoted, the financial planner retreat that we held here at Edelman financial engines last week. This time, of course, was done. Virtually Ken's clients include half the Fortune 500. He received the American Society on a Jing's award twice. He's one of the 35 most influential thought leaders in the financial services industry, according to investment news. Ken. Thank you so much for coming back on the program record is always great to be with you. Now. The reason that I asked him to come on is because of something can said at our retreat. That I've heard. Can you say that several times you and I have known each other for 20 years. I've seen you speak more times than I can remember. You're one of my favorite public speakers. And you said something again in this event, but this time it finally hit me and it got me thinking you gave the following statistic as part of your conversation with us. You said every year in America. We produce about four million babies. And we are also producing about 20 million caregivers. Now that statistic itself is shocking five times as many people are caring for elders as they are for babies. That was really your point reflecting the aging society, right? That was the point you were making. Yes. But it got me thinking it's even worse than that, isn't it? Because when you have four million babies that doesn't mean four million new moms, lots of mom's air having their second or third baby. Which means we're not producing four million new moms were producing Maybe one or two million new moms versus the 20 million new caregivers. The dispersion is even worse than the statistic itself. Suggests, isn't it? Yeah, it's something that sort of off the radar, but it's not off the radar. I'm sure for all of your listeners because nearly every one of us is touched by this in our life, you know, looking after a mom or a dad or a spouse or brother or a sister. It's become a major part of life now and There's a couple of valuables and erected, really pull it together. First, we a cz, you know, and your listeners know we're all living quite a bit longer than humans have ever lived before. The life expectancy in the beginning of the 20th century was 47. Today. It's about 79. But by the way, I'll also tell you that there are 33 countries in the world that have a higher life expectancy than we do. We are very middling when it comes to longevity. But the really interesting piece of it is what's called health span. So our health span doesn't seem to be matching our lifespan. What I mean In the United States. On average, we spend about 10 years sick at the end of our lives, and sometimes we can even spend years dying. Now what that does is, it creates an entire segment of our population. Turning that suffering for whom Our health care system has not done a good job preventing illness or disease but also causes family members. Tohave tow walk away from their jobs, their take every Tuesday afternoon off or relocate. In order to look after either their spouse or their mom and dad and the numbers are enormous. You mentioned 20 million new ones last year, but all in is over 40 million elder caregivers right now in America. And that number can on ly get bigger, right? Yeah, it's going to get bigger and a little more complicated, and I'll explain this. First of all, one of the major variables here has to do with the relation between Men and women and let me explain in America. The average woman who's partnered with a man has a man whose 2.5 years older than her. That's the average right now. The women live five years longer than men. So what usually happens then, At the end of one's life, the mangroves, Il begins to falter. The wife will put everything inside and care for her maid for her loved one. He dies, she might be emotionally depleted. They might even be financially depleted because they perhaps didn't have the resources. Handle what happens when someone is ill. But then she's going to live another 7 to 10 years. Who's going to care for her now for boomers. Now I'm a boomer, and I think you are, too. When our parents were having us. They were averaging four kids each, so the greatest generation in the silent generation had a lot of kids. And they were kind of close at hand. Boomers only averaged about two kids each and about almost 20% of the boomers had no kids at all. And so what happens is when we enter into our later years. Who's going to care for us? And so there's gonna be more of a caregiving crunch, which means at home care industries. They're goingto surge. More and more people are going to seek out housemates. More and more. I think we need to put pressure on the medical system and our scientific systems. Because if we could knock out diseases like Alzheimer's, if we could wipe out I know that's something you're committed to if we could wipe out some of the really nasty diseases of the later years. Then we wouldn't have so many older people suffering and therefore we wouldn't have such a need for caregivers. So we've got to get the lifespan and the health span to be more in sync exactly. So this is something that is as fundamental is a gets from a financial planning perspective what we were now referring to as life planning to help people realize what your future is likely to hold, and you've got to think about it in terms of your intergenerational aspects of your family. How many Children do you have? How many of them can you rely on either because of proximity because of willingness because of financial wherewithal to be able to be a caregiver to you, And if you have suspicions that that's not going to be available to you for any of the above reasons you need to start thinking about alternative ways that you can get the care that you're going to need and not just you, but also for your spouse. Right. And another thing that's happened, Rick is it during this horrible covitz situation? 46% of all the deaths have occurred in nursing homes and still nursing facilities. And they're probably not completely to blame because they housed some of the most struggling elders by half of whom have Alzheimer's and dementia. But what happened as a result of that Is that a whole lot of people are saying to themselves, man. I don't think I want to be in a nursing home. Well, okay, then. Then you need to sit down with your financial planner and make sure you've got some resources or talk to your family. So that you could be looked after the comfort of your home in the way you want to be looked after without having to worry about being parked in a nursing home can thank you so much for raising this issue it is. I think something that we're not giving a lot of thought of. We've got an election coming up in a few days. We have the midst of the covert crisis in front of us. Andi. It's very difficult for people to look beyond the here and now given what our nation is facing imminently to looking ahead 5 10 20 years into our financial future, but it's extraordinarily important that we do so especially in the context of the election because it's our nation's leaders who were about to send or return to Washington. That are going to be key for figuring out the public policies necessary to help protect tens of millions of aging Americans over the coming couple of decades. Exactly. Ken Dike. Well, thank you so much for mentioning this your book. As I mentioned what retirees want. It's hugely popular already hitting all the bestseller lists. You're subtitle really says it all, though, about what your new book What retirees want is all about. Subtitle is a holistic view of life Third age, and that's a lot of what I'm trying to put forward in this book for our grand parents when they reach retirement age. Had a couple of three years before their batteries were out today, most of us we had 60. We have another 30 years in front of us and trying to figure out how to make sure we can fund those years and also have a great time during that stage of our life, and maybe even make some great contributions. I think it's going to be the challenge of the future. So I encourage you to pick up a copy of Ken's brand new book What Retirees Want Available Booksellers everywhere. Ken Dyke, Wild founder and CEO of Age wave. Thanks so much Kan for being back here on the program. Stay healthy. Stay safe, Rick. Thanks.

Ultimately, Interestingly, 40% of the use of proceeds is actually going to be used for overseas payment extension on DH, although that's sounds like they're expanding out of China. Very much focused on Chinese customers. What it really means is that they will try to extend into merchant In in in places where Chinese tourists like to visit like, You know, when you go, too, I guess like the husband yard. When you go to Paris with me, you will feed a luxury stores with on Ali pay Q R code so That is that is what they want. That's what their expansion is focusing on. But it's very much so a China Pacific play and not even within Asia is very much a China. People play well on Krystal. It's also a Chinese listing. I feel like it's not lost on any of the US any of us that this wasn't a US listing. They're not on the nicely. They're not in the NASDAQ. They II Po'ed in Hong Kong and Shanghai. I'm assuming in large part because of the scrutiny Chinese listed firms are under here in the U. S. But How significant is it that this thing did not price in New York City? He has the biggest. Whoever is not a U. S listing is also is the Chinese company that is listening in China and Hong Kong that the concurrent listening It's interesting. This has not been done before. Some companies have tried Teo a simultaneous thing. And will be the first to pull it off. But more importantly, Andi Ali pay and we have. Hey, we're under White House scrutiny just last month. White House is trying to ban both products and the US So I think that just that also explains why us It's not a friendly environment for this idea. Yeah, are we expected to see in a tiara at any point? It could happen, but with 35 billion. I don't think that is the immediate next after them.

"Toolkit is the work of Judith Glazer in the we institute and if you're not familiar with it Judith passed away about a year ago. And I she was organizational anthropologist and she began to understand the neurosciences and how apply to our lives and I. She basically preached that we are always in conversations like you and I are. That's our. That's our is conversation. When she become to realize that whether it's generational differences or it's differences or gender differences, we may say the same words but they have different meanings and that becomes an interesting opportunity to think about the conversation from an eye or a week perspective because if we talk about it that I need you to do this and I think this, the conversation turns into an adversarial one and you're migdal begins to hijack it. Now, regardless of what you're telling me to do I, resisted I fleet I fear it, I. Really WanNa hear about it. But. If you begin to talk about what we can do that wonderful brain of ours begins to see this as a co creation were engaged and next thing you know we have a lot more trust and we can really achieve it, and so part of my preaching is if we begin to change communication around what will work to build, we's instead of is. Leaders can lead multi generations and all kinds of diverse organizations talking and listening different and the other side of conversations have you here. And I watch US doing this conversation I'm I'm deliberately listening to what you're saying to see how to add to it as opposed to thinking about what I was going to talk about I must tell you listening is an art and a skill that people don't have a lot of it's easier to jump to the hear what you thought I said, but that wasn't what I said and that's not what I meant the so it becomes a very. complicated easy approach to improving those societies and the culture and the businesses and even that home or the church you belong to or not for profit you love to do think about the conversation listen for a while and it will enlighten you as to what's working and what's not so cool stuff.

I don't WANNA call it a clean slate, but we have the opportunity to. Really. Make things better for society in every aspect of life and I. This period of time that we've been in this pandemic will hopefully create SM-. Opportunities for people to carry that forward. The idea of triple bottom line I find extremely compelling and I'm watching as people are struggling with this. It's a very interesting to watch which was can keep it in the front of their thinking and which ones are letting it drop by this the same thing with diversity equity inclusion. Things that we say don't mean we do and both of those are sidebars to profit loss and. Unless aboard and the board really does need to have a diversity of people on it both people of Color and and men and women because the cognitive diversity as well as the perspectives they bring make better businesses and all the research is showing that businesses that have more gender diversity and ethnic diversity racial diversity do better. The logic would say how do I capitalize on that and really and build it? But you did say something important and that's about a boomers Many of the boomers have lost their retirement and it's They have businesses sixty seven percent in the US sixty, seven percent of the businesses were owned by boomers.

"It just. It takes things to the next scale. It's usually technology that we have today. And using it and you said in the beginning and kind of the theme of our conversation is. There was resistance to change. It was ready to go. There is resistance until basically the door of how we were doing it was closed. We can't go in that door right now. So it's like well in order for us to continue operations, we're GONNA have to go this way and the college situation where like okay. What do we do with this campus? It's true all you think about that you think of huge colleges and universities I mean they've got acres and acres and miles of property if it goes to virtual environment and all of going, what are we gonNa do with all of this and some of those buildings are going to be historical. So that are not going to be able to do a lot with them or repurpose them for other purposes but it's be an interesting and I. I look at it. I. Mean I know I'm not diminishing what's going on with the deaths and loss of life and everything like. Look at this situation as an opportunity to do things better, and we have that opportunity and chance to do that with with what's going on right now the interesting part. Milton Freeman said that change is comes in little dots until often explodes and I hear that all the time know it's a little change little change than you're off a cliff and you're flying in a whole new way them accelerator here has been this crisis and one of the things that I'm finding is the generational differences and gender differences are coming through. Quite profoundly and So I had one client where the elders who were the board and so forth could not understand why the juniors all had very different work life balance, different ways of using technology different ideas about how to grow the business and the intergenerational challenges for the CEO were profound because they spoke different languages, they live different lives one was heavy into video games and the other. What. That was one used to play baseball and the other bats bets on it it's it's a very interesting challenge and then we have the gender differences. And for women who know forty percent of the Businesses were owned and run by women before the pandemic. And a huge percentage of this were by women of color who often were building very successful businesses, somewhere necessity businesses but there's a huge influx of women with different talent and attitude about how are we going to blend this work life balance and some of my clients that I've been coaching I. I had to get the husband off the couch from watching his game. So he can take care of the kids who are fighting while she took care for finance stuff for her company.

Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador.

It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old.

Trump administration denies California relief for 6 fires
"Hey, Michael. Good morning. Good morning to you. Well, the Trump Administration did reject this request. It was in a letter from Governor Newsome back in September late September. This would mean essentially hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up damage from the six recent fires across the state, and it can be appealed. It will be appealed, but let's look at the motives behind the Trump administration's decision. What are they? Well, I don't want to see what the motives are, because this is a very much developing story. I did talk with Brian Ferguson of the Office of Emergency Services just within the last half hour. And you know, he makes it clear that they will be appealing. They don't seem particularly stunned by this they have. The Trump Administration has approved these kinds of requests for a presidential declarations in the past for wildfires and other disasters on clearly, you know, this wildfire season has been a particularly bad a historically bad one with Really bad fires in L, a Fresno Madeira counties and Casino San Bernadino, San Diego and Siskiyou. And so the administration sent this letter requesting disaster relief funds. More than four million acres burned in 2020. That's I think, double the state's previous record. And so the Trump Administration in responding FEMA in responding Said that the standards have not been met based on their review. So I did a said talk to Brian Ferguson and earlier this morning and this is how he described what the status of this request is. You know, this is not the end of our discussions in our process with the federal government. We were very much in the middle of this. Discussions with which the mother with other federal agencies can continue the letters and the legal documents for for months or even years. So we continued T work expeditiously that You know, turn on those programs leverages every ounce of federal support we can get, But this is very much an ongoing process. And he did say Michael that there are other parts of federal money that are available, like for small businesses and for you know individuals, A Zay said. This presidential declaration is the highest standard. On. So they know they only apply for these when they think they've got all of the verification and the data that they need to get it. So you know, I think they're not pulling the you know, pushing the panic button at this point. But clearly it was a surprise. And of course, you know your question was, you know, one of the motives and the initial. I think you know, the tendency is going to be to say, Oh, this is political. This is a psycho. This is trump trying to get you some back. You know, That may be true. It may not be true and it may all work out. In the end. This is not the first time That this sort of haggling back and forth has happened over an emergency declaration A few years ago, something similar happened with parts of the Oroville Dam. There were no questions about whether it was on state land federal land, so they haggled back and forth. And they finally resolved that. So you know, a cz Brian Ferguson suggested. This is not the end of the story. But it is surprising to say the least. Well, the president did approve welfare relief over the summer, and there are other sources of funding. FEMA grants, for example, is you mentioned, but no reasons were given, which is why I asked about motive, but remember the president and claim the state was not doing enough to prevent wildfires. He said. Governor Newsome did a terrible job forest management not breaking enough leaves, I guess like they do in Finland and The state faces over a $54 billion deficit because of the pandemic. It needs these funds to rebuild communities to rebuild buildings. Tio essentially fix damage roads and bridges. Absolutely, and you know, that was all included in the letter that the governor sent to FEMA into the president. Damage. As you said, you know, all kinds of infrastructure, not just the homes and buildings but bridges, schools, libraries, water and power facilities. Other infrastructure number of people have been killed. And you know this is extremely expensive and there are tremendous costs hundreds of millions of dollars for equipment and firefighters, fire retardant. There are all kinds of planes and helicopters, emergency emergency shelters, of course that get set up. So you know this is very expensive. It is a somewhat standard kind of request the kind of things that we see for hurricanes and Floods, wildfires and so on on. And as you said Trump has so far FEMA through and the Trump Administration have granted all of these on, you know, the president has said very recently that he has a good relationship with Newsome. You've Newsome was even featured briefly in an ad, which I'm sure he was not happy with the governor, but nonetheless, they do try to maintain despite all the political differences, which are major They do try toe team maintain a good relationship for just things like this, And we should mention that some of the stories that have come about as a result of this denial or refusal at this point have mentioned Wade Crow Foot. California Cabinet secretary confronting President Trump on climate change that one could assume falling on deaf ears. Well, you know, certainly. That was big news A few weeks ago when the president was here and yes, the governor's natural resource is director did confront him and I'm sure the president no did not appreciate the half. But I think we need to be careful to ascribe what what has happened here with this request to be directly related to that it might be, but it's not something that we're going to know. It's easy to speculate about Andi. It certainly wouldn't be inconsistent with the president's behavior on other issues in the past, But as I said FEMA are the Office of Emergency Services this morning at least, is not saying that and you know they're going to be appealing this initial rejection of the request.
October 15 Presidential Debate Canceled After Trump Refuses To Go Virtual
"The commission on Presidential Debates announced this week that it was going to change the debate that is you mentioned is coming was supposed to come up on Thursday. The 15th. Some impersonal town hall to a virtual town hall. The president immediately pulled out that debate has now been cancelled. I understand why the president would have preferred an in person debate, but that wasn't what was on the table. Didn't he make a mistake? Regardless of what you think of the commission. Didn't the president make a mistake because he's now lost one of his last two chances to confront Joe Biden. One camera. Well, I don't think so. Look, I think a virtual debate is just a complete disaster. Quite frankly, we see even now when we're talking, there's a delay in communication. This is how it goes. Virtually you cannot have a legitimate debate with somebody virtually. And I know Look who's to say what happens on the other end of things. What happens on the trump side? What happens on the bike inside? Nobody knows these humans should be on stage. There is no reason that they should be 175. Doctors told The New York Post that they think that the president without a doubt, should have been able to do this. It made no sense good for the president for calling it out. Why did the debate commission Chris decided early on? No, We're not gonna add 1/4 debate like the Trump campaign was pushing for because they didn't want to change the rules. They told us now they're willing to change the rules without reaching out to our campaign made a split second decision the day after The vice president had a very strong debate against Kamala Harris. It seems a little suspect people. Andi, I think virtual debate is an absolute disaster. Good for the president for saying no, they need to be in person.
