"We just had five representatives. They're all spiced out to meet requirements and so on that auction was Ibovi. Rollout the Knicks. Coupla GO is coming for the next option. It's been simple August kinda miss the crowd. Yeah I can understand that. I think it would be very hot as an auctioneer to move into looking at a camera and doing doing the thing. It would be something that you definitely held a fun. Pot always was interacting with people and I remember just recently saw an probably do an Indian Guy Young God probably about twenty years of I five is lined up with all their turbans on and silent and they were clapping with every auction. I'm so excited. We want. And then eventually one of them starts bidding on the Knicks. Probably on while you hear that went through the whole process and I was just robbed. Every time he bid they were clapping and it was just beautiful environment and always doing the banner with them and it was just a lot of fun and I was a happy happy. Die At now under this current condition. Yeah I think that will come back. Because there's nothing more exciting than buying a higher. I think it's definitely can't think of anything else. That is more exciting than beating winning auction so having said that there are probably some things as a result of current avars that he to stay here because things change and people start talking about new news and new normals and pivots. And all that sort of thing. Is there anything that you think has been a good thing or an opportunity to innovate as a result of carnivorous it? That you would keep what we're doing. Now is an example all of my now contacts with the outside side. World Google hangouts really zooms or whatever you WANNA use inside. I think my leadership team used to be that out for the officer. Why was a forty five minute drive for them to come for religious meeting? And then forty five minutes back. That's will never happen again. It'll be good. Go hang outs some any. That clients are interstate and often. I've sees will just be making fun call again. We'll be having go hang out and side. I think they'll be a lot more efficiencies I'm certainly intention is by year's end to be completely paperless. We've reviewed everything from direct miles. Why do we need to print it? Print anything like Hannity Show. We'll send them `electronic than a Borussia and so. I think there'll be a lot of practical changes it'll happen. I'm embracing I'm excited by oil. That greater efficiencies and I think the dies of sticking things in people's way the boxes I think it's GonNa be a pushback on that bar consumers site trae somewhere in the world is not damn for you'll Prussia and I say this pollution anyway side. It will make us much more progressive in the way we handle marketing and they they all fashion wise. I think it'll be theoretically the industry. Yeah I think you're right. I think consumers are already on their way to that conclusion before the pandemic and now. Because we're having this discussion in one of L. Online groups. That is anyone so during letterbox dropping. Bit What we're hearing is that can she might WanNa touch pace piper. That someone has dropped into the letterbox. Because everyone's quite obviously jam service right now. We're being interest margin you guys for the supermarket. Nam Nam Saimaa. And you see somebody coming to Login. And you consciously like separate Others that you've got the Blue Bunny. I wonder how quick we'll get back to where they give each other a hug and a high five and a half inch thick and so on. It's it's it's an awful feeling like what we're creating my way with a look at everyone with an element of fee that maybe you've got. Yeah well that's it and I feel the same way walking in through the market. You know when you're looking at people and you don't WanNa get close to people mind you think the silver lining of that is. Everyone's much better managed in the supermarket than they used to be. And I don't have a shopping trolley up. My you know rearrange it at checkout which I long. May that continue. So let's get onto some advice. Let's talk about pep someone. That's just entered the industry at these crazy time because there are people that are now who just started jobs in the industry. What advice would you give to someone? Who was a complete newcomer about what they've just landing? Let me say this I. I think it's getting harder and harder for New People in into the industry because a lot of what we used to do to build connections with people having slyly shutdown. The inability is Finance to call Cole. Paypal increasingly shutting down direct mile in any form oppose laws. Why and saw exist die that they will actually ban the box drops from a security perspective. Even Dole. Knocking is getting a highly risky now and so I really difficult. Has Somebody get themselves into the marketplace? Get themselves now and on the other side. Coin is better. I have been around for some time. Now have really developed the out of Isis. And they've got much easy why to build relationships with the Paleo trying to crack into just a meat inside this huge advantage of those that have been around for a while with building a good personal data and he about Amazon. You person side difficult. I'm calling this time because if I look around and insane all parts of the striper in the pats looked at and particularly narrow market. Everyone's being reduced down to zero. This no one really standing ale. Print media's lists visible now might be Pi ch with somebody Peijan half of somebody else. They certainly not doing the books dropping as much as I did. In all forms of self promotion before Obama's disappear so this is magical moment even someone as a newcomer. Actually stand out by doing something significant significant johnny mostly giving them nothing but actually stand up and there was a like Elijah L. Y. The highly of a herd of and he had three pages in the pipe last week happened as papal Sydney. Who's that I've never heard of them before? That's the opportunity the moment for a new Tama. Somebody who really hasn't been prominent and wants to have a real quick so there's this equalizer and sometimes even the people who the most experienced the ones who mold perplexed about what's happening right now because they might have operations being rocked so I think it's a great opportunity. You just go tonight at a Napa Guy through it and obviously the ability to connect with paypal is GonNa be the Hanoi giving contact with more people with riding tension. Obviously as you were saying earlier what about to someone who's gone into business and has been in business. Let's just say. Let's run a typical scenario in the industry. Which is our Bainian real estate sales for four or five years. I've had some good years. I've decided to go out on my iron Bain business through last year which was an interesting year of two Hobson. Now I've been hit by these and I don't know if I'm GONNA survive it. What would your advice bay well? They will be casualties and probably more casualties. This time than anytime I've seen previous and people need debate some practical decisions as to whether on prepared the tough this out and that means on nate had the financial resources today. Silane the city and make that decision the better because if it's longer DEEPA and you don have reasonably good resources to support your business. Then why blind money longer than necessary? Better make that decision. Sometimes it could be masterminding with another business. Whatever the case might be but for those that do have ambition to together distance and in the posh you now real estate businesses with built some comfort in previous down turns from they rent roll. But it's GonNa be interesting to see the effect on rent rolls with tenants having tenant strikes and and people seeking reductions in rents and semi probably coming availability in going in the permanent Randall's. What's that journey? Was Rentals vacancies. Lower Rents Vacancies Tetra etc. Whilst you rent roll the Case Gun Abate Hal. My going to be the agent that someone's going to select what is my point of difference. Now we know why they liked it. Other agents may be myself in the past because I looked lovely and shiny and ano- said to be getting good results had all I get was good results in this marketplace heather while I actually win the hearts and minds of people. And that's what it's too hot to cover the very sick to die about understanding prices. Soften Guys Amok Gumbo Miami plan is. Let's listen to this figure. Amil stick it on the Internet Died like JANCIS. Yeah you gotTa have a strategy Getting price right and getting Quickly because the market starts to to slide emprise. If you can't get ahead of that decline you'RE GONNA be falling down all the time always missing avenue. Missile always missing atmosphere always missing missile. It's Spain Iowa two DS get ahead of wherever price point is right now to Mike. Ballistic have more soluble than the other listings. My competitors have and. There's not in that. There is a process that we always guide through at the corporate thing. We're managing human emotion. He it's a massive responsibility to do that effectively. But that's what we do. We manage human emotion. You can't do that by a five minute. Compensation here in the void for the next three weeks in another five minute conversation than some. This is genuine care for clients. And let's also summarized this by you can have to work hard over the next six. To twelve months is successful agents will be the ones who are at the during everything they possibly can. This is a time to set yourself up for many years to come. Yeah we're an industry where we attract a lot of faith with silence and like come in when the money looks easy to be my and I disappear when the money's tough the to Mike but the one's you've set themselves up a nice tip tough times. They also enjoy the good times. Yeah absolutely one more question. So we've sort of we've done the Nubian we've done this sort of the the middle of the range thing. Let's just fast forward that and let's just say I'm a successful later. I've got a few offices around the place and I'm wondering you know how to best weather. The storm with a number of people in different places. What sort of advice would you give to that sort of a later right now? It really tough this one. This is very difficult. Because all that social distancing the ability to get together I never feel it I can have the same connection with someone electronically that do when I can sit with them and have a cup of coffee and and just look into there is. This is a bad. I guess. Three things may one is frequency of contact but the ability to understand where everybody's at because they're all different and nurture them through what they going through. It takes more time. I've got two hundred people inside tax on people genuinely so I have three shifts dynamic because I'm usually full thirty in the morning and I'll do memorial shift which is what about dictation. Work a lot of strategic planning work or worked. It will guy doing not dissimilar what we're doing. Now we've had meetings on a technology this We got a stack of mogul mazes off. Newt that's shift and Tom Shift is more on the fine talking to various team members for them in our K. A. Wear their act and try and give them guidance and I. It's just triple shift for me. But you know now this this land laying the foundations for the next part of business nor delays hot. This time will pass. It will pass. I'd like to think that maybe this time governments led a little bit better white type handles to Scott Morrison. I think he's done a marvelous job. Was No blueprint for this. Sean Weekday Whites wrote. He's done a good job. You'll make mistakes and all that sort of stuff and I'm going to be the sign. I'm going to make mistakes by the like that.

I always former these crises is. There's a knee jerk reaction knee jerk. Reaction was just self Salo Salo F- and that just Y- put pressure rod through financial markets when the dust settled and the Toca bat six months in that particular event there was less experienced people in in terms of stock markets and they was not financial advisers and saw the element of noisy and what happened was a lot of money was taken out of the stock market and then went into the real estate market. It started the boom that ran through sort of the Thailand of seven into White. And into is tonight he no? I'm but that boom actually triggered the recession. We have which happened in the early. Nineteen nineties. What looked like a one period The real estate industry and that was our member doing an auction. Managua thirty three properties absolve thirty two under the hammer was like I'm still dreaming for that one and so there was a short period. A couple years of Maka then buying we went into that that necks periods. I can't use it as a comparison or anything more recently currently but it was the first real shock that ever happened in Mercury.

I need is lighter. There was not one bitter and just the confidence was tightly sucked out of the marketplace and so are scratching my head. What do you do? How do we create bar is now while Tillman them? Cori- and so we went through a period of just lost. We didn't know the nothing lack of before and it was the least six loss mansue. Our income was smashed but we just did not have to respond. And there's always nothing responded. There was not as they wanted to inspect properties. Are Mike Office in Psalm? Inside that it was an awful period of time lost not knowing what to do and it was on because this trickle of money sided turning up way people started to show interest in properties that it was more the market that recovered us not ask working within the marketplace. We would just sucked on by the fact that more people start to come back into the market so we was the first experience I had no competence and are had no answer of what I should do to make a difference at the time. Yeah if you could one the clock back now knowing what you know now having the experiences that you've had now what would you tell yourself now if it happened again? Look the big listen and this is command of all the subsequent events and that is that when you can come to terms with what's happened you become the most powerful person in the marketplace at the time when you understand the journey that you follow at the fundamentals of what draw at market these consumer confidence when people at confidence will find Marcellus Shale. I'm going to get a great price and you gotta get mobilize who see sell buys. The auction is now and they sale this heart going hearing leave as going up often. We think that we agent. It's not the markets created. All of that we have plied pod and waving a little bit of magic but the reality was the market. So when you understand what's going to happen and that is that price will correct. When consumer confidence is undermined prices will correct the equation between buys and sells China's from a shortage of sellers and a high number. Is it switches. Almost I've annoyed to the reverse and just like all back. Its stock back. It's the Gulf billion. Mike good when there is more supply than there is demand. Prices will trim back. And so it's quick. You can respond to that head quickly. You can get in front of your clients insight done wake the mark of the slide. Ten percent twenty percent. Let's make that move now. Let's get you out of the market if you need to sell. If you're a long-term held a terrific I'm here for the people who need some help right now and often. It's the people on the financial pressure so forever office. Now we're in. We get enough hours in the day because there was so much to do to help people in this climate and that's what I would be telling myself out the Taj. You know what's going to happen. You know you gotTa roll the play. Get out there and help people. Yeah absolutely when an event like nine eleven came on because that again that was another event that devastated consumer confidence and again all the cycle that that you've been through. How did that compare to eighty seven? The thing that happened was obviously didn't directly affect us. We WON'T ATTACK. But what nine eleven dave was. Stop the Iraq and saw wolves and they gripe fee is about way with Zach and the guy was Russia Gonna come in and start playing a role in ad and of course immediately we had always taught me of Security around the world and was disruptive but it wasn't the same financial panic it was just a period of time disruption and it goes. Well often does happen when the period of fee poces a degrading auditorium but a degree of renewal stats to happen and that wasn't particularly long before we started to say things pick up again after that but it was an immediate shock to the system that the things that I found challenging things. Like say the pilot stripe which was back in the early nineties. Way What we have. Now Klein's on flying and that hasn't been nine months the city all week in the Gold Coast was heavily dependent on tourism and so it took all of Bosnia why we also had the eighty percent interest rates and we had a very lives on board properties. Here's investments that had to get out and so we got this glut of sellers and those things ran for a long time and then heard lots of people in the hip pockets stuff in the hip pockets that has the effect and the other common thing of length rule of these is. It always goes deep a guys longer than we imagine. We liked to hang on hype and thank all this. What's happening now? This'll be either probably in Israel. Six months dawn another consequences of the effects of it wisely. And it's about getting that reality that this is not a bad living in hope it will go deeper and longer than we imagined. Yeah interesting has what's going on now with the current virus pandemic say compared to the GMC and she thousand eight. Which is another cycle. That you've been through so this is like it's fascinating listening to someone who's painter the mall pretty much the affect US guide to measure the effect on this so now he can take surely wig on a lot more cells. I think of a lady that was running I. I was coffee shop at the Brisbane. International Airport. Donnie ZIPPO business alphabet. Nine months full all of this hit based pilot three hundred thousand dollars in equipment and so and it goes eight. Poets was shut down. Put OFF FORTY. Five staff still has the dance. All the leases that she had on the premises bib will never got back into business again. That is going to have a lagging effect on her. She'll take I just recovered. There'd be businesses lot that they'll never come back into business and side one employ the same volume of people in south. So this thing. We're going to see people who are going to are still out of the bank for that all that equipment. Anita sell something heimdal investment properties. So we're GONNA see is significantly more for sellers. Probably we just saw. Last week was a Jemmy invest robberies completely on incumbent with tomatoes completely on income. But but I'm going to sell it because I nine my business. And he was in the travel industry. I nine business will need the financial injection. So we gotta say a lot more of these type of problems coming on the market. And I know that we're gonNA find love the boys going. Ooh I can smell blood in the water. I'm I'm now hurry to sell and I was. GonNa Pie to me for that property. I'll probably offer about one point to now say what they say. So this'll be brought up multiple affected and potentially much deep up the difference. Is this cushioning effect. That the governor's put in place. What happened after the collapse of Lehman Brothers? Is that within four. Or five months thanks wherein taking properties off paypal and we had this lot of mortgage recyles inside you just saw the pipeline full of mortgage which buys even fatal of more of the blood in the While the markets on the white album and so was this knee jerk reaction by banks that caused this Ahmadis law. Now we have cushioning in place but this is Anita Pudding back. What's likely to happen for a lot of people or a job paper? What happens after job? Kepa passes by business. Hasn't picked up two more people. If business hasn't picked up I can afford the rent. Still and solid side. We're pushing some of this down the right of it. There's no talk about debt forgiveness yet so this is the difference is with put a Kushner Rian which will give people a little bit of breathing. Spice little thinking spice but the inevitable is still down the track. It's still going to catch up with us. Dan The track. And which is why. I say it's GonNa last longer because we wanted the worst but now we'll see the cumulative effect later on it is interesting because with the cushioning effect that you're talking about with the banks. I mean we've never seen interest rates so low at the moment and you just talked about that time when interest rates were eighteen percent. And you know you can. You can see how interests would kill people back then like I can vaguely remember it now. I've dated myself again fit. I mean interestingly. What you're saying is is exactly how it could play out so the banks have stepped up because I had a bit of. They gave themselves a bit of a bad name through the Royal Commission so they've stepped up and said we'll just pay the interest and the interest is minimal. But that doesn't mean it's going away anyway. I think the Wolcott if anything is to. What extent can the Government Cape throwing money at people a hundred thirty billion dollars? People lives number people in jobs for six months. But what happens after that? Can I rescue the moment? You know we've got ten SAGANA and be looked after or what about the landlords is going to be some support for them? It's not a bottomless pit of money. That the government can keep trying this inside some stage. We're GONNA start facing realities in their own individual world and just leave that they will be more sailors than boys to have. Long second lasts while. I'm not spending speculating. It because all now is I'm here to help people to die. Whatever the circumstances are and I'll give them the very best opportunity of getting the very best price in this marketplace. They probably knock. I'd be in a lab to shake my hand at the moment. But even if they could they probably wouldn't shake my hand insight withdrew changer. It's not like we've experienced in recent times where all of backslapping and Raji goes a marvelous. What a fantastic result. I'm lawyers say much of that but now year nine months from now that many of our clients again guy thank you. You gave me great advice or go through this thing. I I wasn't having the price but it's show better than I would have got if I wanted another twelve months knowing plice having a contextual understanding about what's happening in the marketplace gives you a much more powerful position to have good conversations with cells. And they gotTA BE. Opportunity football is that we re positioning pricing. And you want to capitalize on that you want to get in the capitalize on that and they'll be baugh this whenever you get the price Roy. Vise coming we saw that what ten days ago? Two ago with the Stock Market Salsa Salt and they bang its value all by.

Experts fitness experts in general health experts to talk about a variety. Righty of health topics. To help you get to and through your goals so all right. Let's get back to the show here so John First of all we WANNA learn a little bit about you your background. What got got you into Yoga because first of all people can't seem well if they see the thumbnail they will? But you probably don't look like the average person you would expect to be doing yoga. I don't yeah so so. What what got you into Yoga My wife is that we we started off two weeks before we went to see a movie and it was on the history of Yoga and it was about two and a half hours and at that point I thought it was about two hours and fifteen minutes too long and it was boring and it was a smoother and There's a lot of Yogis in there and just loved. It was a history of the breathing and the channels in the energy and all these different parts of Yoga and I just sat there and I fell asleep in and a couple of times it was their premier and so we walked out and they had this table tabletop with everybody who had anything to do with anybody who had energy in there. There's a producers the Editors the writers directors anybody who put any type of hands on that film were there and all these women around all these people around and they're all just gushing about it and that's my wife and I are walking out. They asked me what I think about the movie and I go. You don't want to know what I think about that. Other ask one of these other women he goes. Don't what do you think about it. And I told him I said well I go if you ask them to give you my honest opinion I go. I think it's a bunch of hocus pocus mumble bumble bee s and He he he okay. And that's the interesting thing is he just said Okay and and my wife was mad. I mean everybody was looking around like I was like the crazy guy and we walked out and Two weeks later. She asked me if I I wanted to take a yoga class. There's this place down the street that was free. I said if it's free it's for me and I went in there and I took the first class and It was physically challenging changing. But I told my wife before I go weird in there. I'm going to go ahead and just step outside and sit in the car because I don't you don't know what's what you're getting into yoga mystical. So Oh I went through that first class and physically challenged. I went through the second class the next day and Something happened to me and and that was when I was going to sleep I wasn't awake. I wasn't asleep and I just told my wife that you'll free my mind and I denied it at first when she said I go like I said it and that's when I realized that I need to do more of this. So that's what was my first weekend of Yoga is that it just freed. Read my mind after after two places that that was ten years ago ten years ago and it was just just There's a lot of dynamics in my life that we're going on that we're very challenging. I slept like a baby. Go to sleep and I'd be up about every fifteen twenty minutes Kinda you know. Restless solicit everything and that I'd go back to sleep but that piece that I experienced after just the second class was the Besley that I received and so I just found myself wanting to go back more and more and more and just eating more of it and which was really good. Wow that's awesome. That's yeah that's very cool is would you say what would you say is the ultimate ultimate goal of Yoga. Then is it to find that peace is it to heal your body. Is it just to get exercise to what. What is the ultimate goal of Yoga or meditation? General I it can be all of it because Yoga's uh-huh physical practice. There's definitely a physical dynamic that you will tone in sculpture body but there's also the piece component with the breath that you can find and yourself. Pardon me in his place of seated meditation and all Yoga is a moving meditation my perspective because the Word Word Yoga when it comes right down to it it translates into harnish into yoke and that's to connect the breath to the body and Dach- that's where you'll get is and it's been around for six thousand years and in the first but when I started yoga it was there to find seated meditation out that was the ultimate that was the ultimate go when Yoga I started six thousand years plus ago because they were all hunter gatherers they wanted to find a place to come to for stillness us so they practice these poses to find one in their body so they can meditate to their supreme being whatever it was meditation Yoga Alga Right Gateway to to meditate. Okay L. DO Yoga. The Yoga was there to help find and yourself into seat imitation sit comfortably comfortably invitation. Okay and so do you. Do you find that. There's a right or wrong way to practice. Meditating I don't know much about about it I kind of difficult especially in the beginning. So is there any like tips. You have for people who are just starting to meditate trouble either sitting still still clearing their mind or just getting to that seated place that they need to be is very challenging. Because you're confronted with one of the scariest things in life in that stillness. John Lewis our minds our program to constantly go. Go go perfection. The Best Excel. Whether it's at your work whether it's in your life you want to be the best you want to have the best car. She wanted to the best of everything and when you slow down to a place of stillness whether it is two minutes in posher five minutes and seated meditation and beyond it becomes that stillness becomes very very confronting and sometimes the best possible thing you can do for your body. It is absolutely nothing as sitting be still and just focusing on the breath but to get back to your pointing a a right or wrong way. There's no wrong way to meditate. But when you want to you definitely want to do it in seeded comfortable position because if you do it laying down you can fall asleep and your main focus is to focus on the breath right eight to clear your head of all holy thoughts in just to clear the thoughts on you what you WanNa do you find yourself. You want to observe the breath not find it as a focus and let everything pass through the mind all the fluctuations pass through like you're not attached to any of them because when you're sitting in a place of you're focusing on your breath you're thinking of your breath now if you observe the breath and you just let it pass through you with any without any attachment then you can find yourself in a place of meditation. That'll it'll take you further because thoughts always go through your mind when you're meditating. You can't turn off your mind it'll just constantly things will come through that kind of led into the next question of like. How what do you do when you can't stop thinking while you're meditating but I guess it's focus on the breath you just? Yeah the the mind works in a specific way you can only think about one thing at a time. So if you're focused on your breath you're not thinking about yesterday today or tomorrow thinking about. What's on your daily play? You're thinking of the breath fashion. You can kind of use it as technique is just watched the breath come into your nose to the back of your throat and fill up your lungs. And then that'll take you to a place where you you can start to focus on that and then you can get back and used that as technique to just watch the thoughts go through and is it almost like a way of organizing your thoughts in a sense or letting your mind kind of naturally organized your thoughts in that. You're you're letting them kind of passer you like voice heard like you kind of like the thought comes in your mind. YOU RECOGNIZE CNN is it. Let it go and try and focus back on the breath. Is that also part of meditation. Yeah Y- you. You definitely have a way of organizing but even organizing is the same as focusing seeing on breath. What you're writing? What you're trying to do is not shut the mind off completely but find it to a place of peace because I believe my opinion. Is that when you are able to shut the mind off away. From all the distractions it starts to go into a different mode of thought. It's not uncommon for somebody to walk out of a yoga class and say They had a a series of something at work that it was going on. They needed to find an answer to a specific question for something something a problem at work or at school and an hour or two after a class you come up with that solution and the reason I believe is because you've given your mind time I'm to really get into process And kind of you know to see through the confusion clearly or lack of another word analysis by paralysis. You've shut it down to work at higher speed clears the fog. They say the same thing about nerves too like with public speaking when people get really nervous my dad added always told me a story of how somebody would but a paper clip in their pocket and play with it with their hand. Because you can only focus on one thing at once if you're on that you're not focusing on being nervous but it's interesting 'cause I always wondered it's like you find that clarity while you're meditating any find that clear space but what about when you stop. Do you take it with you. But you're right. It's you use that moment to meditate to open up your mind to be able to clear.

"andrew bell" Discussed on Big Data Beard

"We've learned a lot from our guests about big data but now it's time to get a bit personal in a segment. We like to call rapid fire. What is the latest book that you've read that you would recommend to our listeners. I've only been able to read things related to my talk over the last few months so it's going to be one from from my talk but basically I would say uncontrolled. I think Jim Manzi is is the author but again he's again. He's talking about experiments okay and I like. He's come up with some interesting. Terminology like causally dents is one of the terms that he came up. I think is impactful. That's that's a deep word man. Yeah I dig that sounds so you had a chance to talk at the conference but if you had a chance to pick a song song that was playing as you walked onstage. What would that song be. There is a song off of a stone roses album and I don't think the song was very popular but there's a point in that song where it starts out. It's the song's called breaking. I think it's called breaking into Heaven Evan. There's IT starts out with four minutes of just like jungle sounds and maybe these kind of subtle drumbeats and then all of a sudden out of out of this chaos evolves this like deep funky guitar. It's super awesome. It's like right about the four minute mark but all right. That's the point point. I would want to walk out on the long minutes getting seated.

"We've learned a lot from our guests about big data now. It's time to get a bit personal in a segment. We like to call rapid fire. So what does the latest book that you've read that you would recommend to our listeners <hes> actually it's Daniel kind of book thinking fast and slow so I am probably probably about halfway through the book and it's a great read. It's just it's really thought provoking so agree. I'm actually I'm about a quarter of the way through it on audible and and it's it's incredible I agree. He's just hear him talk today. At this conference was just it was mind blowing to think about the the amount of thought that he's put into thinking about the way we we think like that whole noise for the last five years or thinking about noise for the last five years a lot all right so if you had to have a song play if you get to choose the song when you walk on stage for presentation at a conference like Rove. What would that song be. Oh Gosh I so I love Music Isaac. I'm fanatical about music and it's almost like asking me to pick your favorite child right. <hes> I what I can tell you is. I was listening this morning to <hes> <hes> high hopes by panic at the disco and so that's that feels like that might be a good one wrong like all right so what piece of technology is currently making your life worse worse worse. Oh Gosh it's a love hate relationship with my smart home and and Google we hear a lot of Google Google path. I did both right I bought of course all the Alexis stuff and then I bought the Google stuff and yeah we have this eighteen fiber in my home and it's constantly dropping which is causing weird issues with Google so it might not even Google stalled. It's kind of unfair to point at them but <hes> it's it's great when it works but then it just suddenly won't work and that's frustrating honestly I.. The thing I struggle with is is like if you work in tech. Everyone in your family assumes that you work in computers can fix their laptop which always done all we've done with. This connected stuff is just give ourselves more systems in our house to deal with all right. So what Netflix show are you currently binging on right now so I was. I was not watching Netflix. I just I finished orphan black which I've never seen before and it it was amazing. The lead actress plays all of these roles and there's such depth it's just amazing and I really enjoyed that and that's actually on Amazon but from net flicks the when I was watching right before that was unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which is why I saw so many little curve all going off script here. What is your favorite original. Netflix show of all time favorite original aw Gosh I that is you know the truth is that I don't watch a lot of television so I watch <hes> I do watch something. I'll pick comedy like unbreakable commitment or I'll do the net flakes stand up comedy specials and so I loved Alley Wong's long's she had two specials and it was I was just laughing hysterically the entire time also lastly. Where's the next interesting I can place that you're going to visit. I am going to be visiting Zurich next week. Yeah so it's Yeah I've I've been to AH TO NETZER GENEVA. I'm sorry Geneva Geneva thank you. I've been to Geneva but not Zurich and so that's going to be fun. I'm excited beautiful place. I was there just in the last year. You'RE GONNA eat lots of chicken cordon BLEU. That's their food of choice Sir. I don't know why and lots of Rick let you had the it's like we're the take a block of cheese and they just melt the top of it like under burner and they scrape it off on top of like potatoes and bread below your mind that. Oh so good all right well desert. Let's do it instead. We're in New York City. Thank you so much Michelle for joining US tonight.

"What is the latest book you've read that you would recommend to our listeners? Don't read, I'm a podcast. Okay. Never listen to your podcast before I had certainly I have subscribed will. But I think you know, podcasts I do read a more of a skimmer kind of catch the highlights. A lot of my research was reading Gartner articles and blogs and trying to form an opinion. So I'm not a big grab a book kind of guy and read that it just doesn't I don't have the tension span at all the pens, and that's because we heard today from the, the turing award winner Dr Peterson those was he said there's a there's a Moore's law of machine. Learning papers like the number of machine. Learning papers is doubling every year. It's nuts. It's wild. So you're going to walk onstage later today. I'm curious if they would let you play a song as you're walking on the stage like your walk on song. What would it be am, I'm not afraid? That's strong. Real strong player ever. I like that. Is there a piece of technology? That's currently making your life worse. Currently, making my life worse. I think the. I think it's, it's traffic. It's the gap of companies that have kind of gone mobile, but not what's interesting to me is like you can order food on grub hall or dying dash or dash. But then, like I fight with, you know, I can go through like my kids, like, hey, they're at home day off are working, they wanna wear Chick-fil-A, we're gonna do on, on, on, on, on a Uber who reads, the markup is just confusing to me on what they Mark up on that. But you can go to Dinesh for three bucks. They go get you everything you want. Then. Aaa is, you know you can get food delivered to them, but you put will deliver. But the us door. Dash just outsource. Yeah. It's interesting but it's cheaper, and it's frustrating for me because my wife and I both work too older kids once in college going to college twelve year old, and I think that kind of stuff I preferred the less human action, the better. But I'm a very social person right, customer service, kind of bridging that gap of just make it convenient for me. I don't need to talk to people at UCLA. Just let me do what I want to do, and just and just make it right. The more frustrating things when you order something he'll be ready at seven ten you show up at seven to ten or fifteen minutes. Some manager should be like, hey, I think that's kind of my frustration. My kids, probably hear me complain about all the time. So that's awesome art. So what is your current personal biggest money pill like a personal money? But where you spend all your disposable income technology. I got. Ipad pro nice. How do you like huge? I love it. I love the pen. I love the collaboration. I was an early adopted the ipad and get one of the first note taking apps those rubber ended saying awful, and then the clear ones with the little points, you get to see the. Sarah. So it's kind of my first foray into that stuff. I'm just a big person on kind of understanding that how to. I listened to the podcast, listen to MAC power users it's two lawyers and how they just kind of do their workflow how they do. One guy does Al his lawyering on an ipad pro which I think is fantastic. Talk about all these apps. They have people come on and talk about stuff. I think it's that I think just last year, I installed a Rossio sprinkler system uses weather, I save money last year. I know I did. No, that's cool. You watch production ran last night at home in won't run, again probably for three or four days. Looks on the schedule based on the rain predictions nationals chases the changes every day, that's brilliant. I think it's at school stuff. That is awesome. No. Are there? Any shows that you're watching Netflix shows or anything like that. When you travel around. Arounds at your game. It's Hughes games rounds. Dude. How good was up so to a love it. Oh my gosh. So the whole family full whole families of that stuff. I think that's really cool. Another Colin is Bosch on Amazon prime. Okay. That's heard that two different people. It's really, really good. We just wanted the fifth season came out my wife and I was rainy on the weekend. We'd binged it we kind of get what we just watched a ball. Entrepreneurs productive after you. That's all that's a huge game of thrones. Sounds traditional and the one that's so invites the most watched show on the planet. Like there's a good statistic likelihood. You're the guy that also. All right. So what's the next interesting place that you're going next interesting place? I'm going to I think. Cod. I don't know. Yeah. To italy. You're in San Francisco. We came in early my date engineer, I did. He had never traveled really to the west coast at all. So we have to response yesterday yesterday was all the war if the seals Golden Gate Bridge. Yeah. Headline and we rented a car went to Silicon Valley. That's all we hit up Facebook's. Picture taking in front of the big thumbs. We didn't do that, too corny. We went to Google plex Google merchandise store, which I didn't know about that, either. And then the apple at the Donut at apple park, the a really cool, apple store, and you can only buy apple shirts at that store. Really? Really, really cool. All right. Well, that's cool.

"I'm Gorman and your with the world. A military band welcomed a smiling Kim Jong own in Vladivostok Russia today as North Korea's leader stepped off his train. It's Kim's first visit to Russia a country. He's long dreamed of seeing he said today. Oh, the North Korean leader also told the report of a Russian state TV that he's looking forward to a successful. Visit Kim summit with president. Vladimir Putin is scheduled for tomorrow. And Andre Lanka is watching it all closely. He's Russian who studies North Korea from his base at Seoul's cookman university to begin. I asked him. Why Putin is sitting down with Kim essentially today mind the entire world that Russia exists that it has some interests and possibly some influence in regards to the North Korean issues because over the last two years Russia has been pushed a site and did not play any significant role in the completed negotiations around no scarier and NAS carrying nuclear issue. So the major message is just I would say it politely minder that Russia should not be completely forgotten when it comes to the carry in. So mostly a photo op, but you did mention Andre lung of that Russia has some interest in North Korea. What are they in the luck show Russia's interest in Los scarier es about stability? Russia doesn't want to give is a serious crisis was a far east. No because Russia is a such this loving country. But because Sacha crisis is not going to be good for its national interest is going to be expensive and difficult to manage the share the border you saying that Russia. Yeah. Concerned that maybe refugees would come over the border into Russia and all kinds of stuff so they want basically the Eddie to be stable if they formed status quo and of inserted rash of would like to see denigration, however, less stem fifteen years, it has become a near consensus among the Russian decision makers. And and that is an scoreless that North Korea is not going to Sarah the issue. Grave efforts when it comes to the nuclear issue. Everybody seems to know that the real players in the negotiations are the presidents of the US and China, they're the real powers net. We also know that the US aim of getting North Korea to denuclearize is not going. Well, what could can be telegraphing about that process with his visit to Putin Kim view paleo Silvis his alleged designed to set any nuclear weapons at this lip service shouldn't be taken to see this. And then after all necessarily decleration he will probably introduce some ideas about the possible compromise nor sketti settled going to surrender they nuclear weapons. They saw what happened to more on my flee beer who is only struggling in. Recent study who Sarah ended nuclear weapons is eighty member that Ukraine von city seved guarantee of its borders from Rasha kind it's a United States and UK in exchange for new care weapons. And then you know, what happened? To crimea. Therefore, they believe in Evanston going to Sarah. But they are probably beating negotiate some kind of freeze or even reduction of their nuclear attention in exchange for sanctions being lifted, and maybe some additional assistance some additional investment provided and this probably going to be discussed. However, as you have said, the major player is Donald Trump, not reading of Putin and probably not even seeing because major decisions are made now in Washington, and it's bell fact of life, historically, as you well know, it's not uncommon for North Korea to play off the larger powers against each other. Is that what Kim is doing its entire king family has been doing this great brilliance for seventy. Yes. They agreed diplomats maybe German is not as good as his father and grandfather. But it's part of the family. They used to play Russians against Chinese than south of suggests American's changes against Americans, Andrew bell. It's how they basically around diplomas Andrei Langkow a North Korea expert at Seoul's cookman university. Let's turn now to news out of the United Nations yesterday, the UN Security Council passed a resolution condemning sexual violence in war should not have been a controversial vote. But the resolution was only approved after language referring to sexual and reproductive health was taken out the US delegation had threatened to veto the measure in line with the Trump administration's opposition to any official document that even implies support for abortion. Amanda class and co directs the women's rights division at human rights. Watch rape is a weapon of war is something that has been documented over the last few decades, but is certainly pervasive. It's win the parties to a conflict have used sexual violence to install. He'll tear Tim you try to break social fabric and try to humiliate and harm civilian populations. You see this when women are fleeing from conflict. He may see it when military tried to occupy a community. We also have seen the knock on affects of this type of violence can last decades how did this resolution at least in the eyes of the White House. Amanda imply support for abortion, surprisingly, they have just read into every mention of sexual reproductive, health and rights, the idea of abortion when we talk about sexual reproductive, health and rights, particularly for victims of sexual violence. What we're talking about is the broad range of services that are needed for somebody who's been raped that includes access to emergency contraception prophylaxis, so that they don't have sexually transmitted infections. And in some cases, that might mean access to abortion or prenatal care, if they choose to continue a pregnancy. I mean, they ultimately signed the resolution how watered down with the language to actually remove all language related to reproductive health and also removed a paragraph that refers to an earlier UN Security Council. Resolution the talks about sexual reproductive, health and rights. So what does the resolution actually say? Now in practically what does that mean on the ground for women who end up in that horrific situation? So the resolution looks at a broad range of issues including accountability for acts of sexual violence in conflict in practice. The resolutions that previously exists still hold true. But what it means is that governments won't feel compelled to make commitments to ensure that all range of services are available to victims of sexual violence in conflict. So the original resolution was submitted by Germany, how did they react to the change in other countries that wanted to have the original language, Germany was in a really difficult position with the US actually flexing its? Veto. They had to choose whether or not to remove this language or to see the whole resolution. Dia sensually and so they conceded to this language. It certainly is a step back from global consensus around what it is women who have been raped in war deserve to access after they've had such a terrible thing happen. Why did Russia and China abstained from his vote they abstained from the vote related to some other issues within the resolution? China was concerned about language about women human rights defenders in Russia did not agree to language regarding LGBT rights. So how much does this resolution actually carry another non-binding symbolic statement from the UN or do you think there are real teeth in this? I think the biggest concern here is that we have seen over the last couple of years a broad global attack on women's rights than the UN has really been a challenging place to reassert global consensus on women's rights. So it's reflective of the power that. The Trump administration has to really influence backtracking, a women's rights. And and you see it's not just in conflict. But as we see rising thorough -tarian rising populism. It's often the women's rights activists that are in the frontline of being attacked when we have countries like the United States Allen with other countries like Russia and Saudi Arabia to try to roll back women's rights. It really puts women on the front lines at risk and leaves them alone. Amanda class saying with Human Rights, Watch speaking with us from Washington. Thank you very much. Thank you. Hacking the hackers since twenty fourteen members of prolific Iranian hacking group have hit both private and state targets. Now, they're getting a taste of their own medicine. And Greenberg is a reporter with wired. Tell us what we know about this Ronnie and hacker group oil rig also known as a thirty four. What oil rake is really one of the most active cyber espionage hacking groups in the world, they seem to be working on behalf of the Iranian government's and their targets have included the oil industry and other parts of the private sector everywhere from Qatar to Israel and many of these governments as well. Some of the infrastructure of hackers seems to have been based in Iran in earlier years, and now we can kind of tie together. This whole set of intrusions by code similarities between all of these attacks. So it looks like it's all one group and then onto the scene arrives. This mysterious other group, I'm what have they said about exposing oil rigs secrets just last month. This group appeared in a public channel on. The essence service telegram, they call themselves loved gun, which I think translates from far seat to those who have their lips sewn shuts, and they are spilling the secrets of this group. They really seem to have either hacked the hackers or they may be composed of insider from the group and is doing this to disrupt their operations, embarrass them even put them in danger. So what kind of messages have you been saying in the public channel for love? Big on will this group has posted lots of sort of rhetorical messages alluding to the corruption and the damage done to Iranian society by ministry of intelligence, but it also has really got the goods they have posted all of the hacking tools of this group. I mean, these are tools used to maintain a connection inside of hacking victim, for instance, even more dramatically, they're posting photos identities social media screen shots of the Iranians that are allegedly within this group is it too early. Andy to try and understand what their motivations are. There's an. Apparent motivation, which is some sort of righteous Iranian insider who was calling out what they say is the corruption of this intelligence agency from within. But all of the comments that I'm getting on my story about this on Twitter points out that they don't actually seem to be native Farsi speakers. They certainly want to look like they're Arabians. Instead, this appears to be some other nationality pretending to Iranian. Then. There's also the possibility that this is an external intelligence agency. They've maybe a message to oil rig that they've stepped across too many lies that they're simply too aggressive. You've drawn comparisons between this group love buffet gone and the shadow brokers hack of the NSA explain that reminded that was about well, the shuttle brokers is this remarkable and still entirely unsolved mystery that unfolded starting in the summer of twenty sixteen these mysterious hackers who call themselves the shadow brokers started dumping leaking the hacking tools of the NSA which such a remarkable events because we have never seen anything. Like this collection of tools. This is probably more significant leak from the NSA than even Edward Snowden leaks. This group of hackers which appear periodically the talk the NSA published more of their tools, occasionally, even out former NSA hackers. It's very similar to what's happening here. In kind of seems like this shadow brokers technique is being used disrupts in embarrass and stymie, another state sponsored hacking group, you could come up with a theory that perhaps love to gun is an essay. And that they're doing to the Iranians what was done to them. But you know, there's really no evidence of that yet. And it doesn't honestly strike me. As the kind of thing the NSA does the NSA is usually a lot quieter. So how big a blow is love the fig onto oil Reagan. What does this tell us about Iranian state hacking? I think it's a setback all of their tools are essentially burned. Now, we have the mall identified if they're used again, it's very clear who use them and easier to detect so they probably have to start over and develop. A lot of their tools again. But it's not that hard to rebuild tools that are not as recognizable. So it's a message sent to this group, and it certainly will cost them something. But I think we'll see them just as active in a few months or year. Andy Greenberg with wired magazine. Thanks, very much retired. Andy, thank you Marco..

So you have this guy named William Rick singer. And and that by the way was the attorney general Massachusetts. His name is Andrew Belling. And what happened is singer? Would would tell these parents. Well, I he helped these wealthy clients illegally boost the scores of their kids in in cheat on the ACT SAT's etcetera etcetera in varying ways and told the parents to seek quote extra time where the kids to take the SAT ACT tests, including by faking learning disabilities now, I know a little bit about this because I have my older sister has a school counselor. And there are real issues with kids that are that that for example, the ADHD or a DVD or something like that. They sometimes you can apply for more time to take the test because your ability to focus is not at the same level of. And it's a real thing for these kids. Okay. So he's telling them to lie about that. I guess to a doctor and once the kids get the extra time, then singer would tell the parents changed the exam location from the kids high schools where I guess they're known to one of the test centers that he knew controls in either say West Hollywood or Houston as an excuse for Cheney location. He suggested saying the kids would be out of town attending a wedding or bar mitzvah, and then singer would bribe the administrative ministers, so he's picking specific test sites where I guess he had relationships with the administrators of the tasks and let a co conspirator usually a Harvard. Grad student help the kids cheat on the exam. And then, you know, either he or others would take the test for the kids. In other words, either the Harvard grad student. Would take the test and put the or just give the kids the answers they needed or correct? The wrong answer after the kids turned in the test and the test center administrators then sent the exams back to the college board SAT and ACT proficient grading which then raise scores significantly and schools listened. I'm I'm living through been living through this now for a long time. Because my you know, if you have a kid that's an eleventh grade like I do it's it's front and center in everybody's mind. In eleventh grade is like the hardest grade for kids all the time. And then, of course, the idea in the other case, Laurie Lachlan's case, you know, they actually took the daughter was not an athlete at all. And they photo shopped a picture of the daughter onto the body of an athlete and started posting it all over social media is if she was a crew player in the case that the the US attorney made or they do it with the soccer player. Linda is shaking her head the whole time. You think I've got this all wrong. I haven't even given my opinion. Yep. You'd think I have this all wrong. Why I just I think it's a bunch of baloney. I really do. I mean, the the feigned indignant and the shock over this. Give me a break scraps been going on for years. We'll hang on saying, you know, about legacy admissions. I mean, if your mother and father and mother or father and your grandfather, and your uncle all went to one school the advantage. You have is massive over any other applicant is called legacy admissions goes on all the time. Usually it is tied to how much money the family donated over the years. That's I mean, the endowments that these schools are sometimes in the billions and billions of dollars, right? Yeah. And then those kids because of their name their family. They have an advantage. Listen at the end of the day. Everybody gets an advantage at the end of the day. Today the day everybody's going to get over because something so I can throw a basketball. I can throw a football. I play the oboe. I I know how to do lacrosse. I I need more time on my test. Because I got I got ADD. I feel sad today. My dog died. My cat that neither food whatever. The frigging reason is this is what these people do not worthy of our time. So you know, that I have been about my kids have been, you know, athletes since they were seven years old, and I've been all over the country and all my son's been all over the world. They play in his sport. And I could tight, but let's just interrupt you for one moment your kids. Play tennis. What do say? But that's fine. First of all you talk. About tennis all the time. This is not a surprise. Okay. Second of all when people play tennis one thing comes to mind money. How do I know this because I'm from Philadelphia, and they have the Arthur Ashe Arthur Ashe center, and they used to take all us poor kids down to play tennis. So we could see how the other side lift learn a little bit of tennis yada, yada, yada. So you know, I've actually donated a pretty good amount of money over the years. But that's not my point my point is to separate charities to actually make tennis available. Everybody just my point is is that that's there's nothing wrong with that. You know, if you have more money, and you can do more for your children. I'm not saying do criminal activity heads, but the difference. But what does it a you differences money gonna let me talk? But this is the difference. You you're missing so much here. For example, my daughter is in eleventh grade, and my son was the same thing. Every single one of the kids she grew up playing the sport with every one of them has been recruited not one wasn't. They all were recruited. They all got, you know, pick for their athletic ability. Now, if you add other sports to it, yet baseball basketball football, you know, first of all sports, enhance the university experience. If you go to the university of Alabama you go to Clemson you go to Notre Dame. Let me tell you something those sports not only financially enrich the institutions, but they make the experience of the other kids that are there because of academic merit so much better because they all love going to the games and cheering on their team. So here's here's the thing. They lower. They don't lower the admission stand. Birds academically for the athletes how but there's a give and take to that. Do you know what I mean? No, I think it's a bunch of crap. Like, I said at the beginning of this argument. So when I went to school, right? I I I'm masters degrees. You know, I have to. But I'm the first person in my family to go to college. My mother went to college Anthony. Now having said that I had to go at night. I had to work all day. I had a very different college experience and a lot of other people because financial background I paid my own way. Totally get it the long and the short of it is we all try to do more for our children. Right. We don't want our kids to have the same struggles that we had yada yada, yada. So a lot of these kids who are very very good at sports that come from affluent families. They don't go to regular school. They have private tutors. They have private tennis instructors. They spend X amount of hours a day. Playing tennis X amount of hours a day, do math history yada, yada. And listen if you can afford it, and you can do it more power, you I would do it for my kid to you know, you can't hate on people doing well. At least I don't the problem that I have is the son indignation like oh my God. I can't believe they pay for this is horrible. I'm like, dude. That is no different is a very big difference. Okay. Because let's take the case of the kids that on their own get the great as SAT score Mike made. Okay. So there is a zero sum gain here. In other words, there is a certain number of slots available for kids that are academe hardworking and gifted okay. Even then you don't wait a minute. Hang on. Then. At least the playing field is more fair. If you take out the whole legacy admission part of it at cetera et cetera now on the athletic side. You know, if these there's only X number of slots for every sport in every school, so no there's not here's why let me know you wrong wrong. There are only for example. You're only allowed x number of signings. NCAA rules for any sport. And anyway, so what they'll do is they'll bring in another kid, and they'll say, well, we'll take them earlier. We'll bench him for this year. He'll go into this. And then we'll bring him onto here. There's always a worker. I'm just. That would mean that year one less person that was deserving. They get their spot taking away. And you know, what that's called that's called life. Life is not fair. Life is not fair and things are difficult. And at the end of the day, you have to know let me give you an example, if you plan live, you're playing baseball basketball tennis crew, which is I actually think I played the clarinet. Okay. And let me tell you how it works to become a recruited athlete. You know, you can go back to win your kids. These kids are are eight nine and ten years old and see that they've been playing the whole time. Whatever sport. It is anybody that looks at you throwing a baseball shooting a basketball player hitting a tennis ball. They're going to know in five seconds. Whether you're a real player. So that you understand from where I come. Okay. I'm not understanding. I don't care how you wanna look at this at the end of the day, which is where I started. That's my opening line. I'm going to finish with it. There are all sorts of inaccuracies and and discrepancies that come with applying to college. Now what these people did was wrong. I'm not saying what they did was. Right. So when we look at this, and we take and we take a close look at what's happening here. We also need to take a close look all the other inequities, and then we can have an honest and real conversation about the overpriced experience we call college. You don't see? Well, I actually think there's a bigger problem with the legacy issue. If you want my opinion on the only thing I can say. The only thing I can say, and I have one good friend of mine who's son plays at UVA as you know, we've been tennis acquaintances the entire time. We had sons the same age daughters the same age, they competed all throughout juniors and every time I see him. I hate the sport. I hate this. I would tell them because it's torture. Watching your kids play. I hate it. And he laughs at me all the time. And you know, we were just you know, it was kind of became just a long joke. It's I am the amount of effort time money everything. Traveling the goes into the years. You can't be a you have to decide if you want your kids to go unless there are so off the hook naturally talented. If you want them to go to college on some athletic scholarship, or or admissions, you have to start when you're seven or eight and focused pretty much now on. One sport everything is specialized, and you could couldn't just save money. Those years put it into a five twenty nine college finding pay for college. Okay. But you're not going to get into the college. Maybe that you want. That's the point..

You could also give me a follow shoot me. A tweet on the good old. Cesspool of Twitter at Zach Gill. That's Z ACH G E L B a lot to do over the next four hours. Joining us at three forty AM eastern will be Irv Smith junior. The former Alabama tight end is expected to go somewhere between rounds of one in three and this upcoming NFL draft. So we'll see where he does land. His father did play in the National Football League's little chat a little bit with him about the draft process with his pro day upcoming next week and already been through the combine obviously as well. And then at four forty Matt McMahon. Man. The head basketball coach at Murray state. They are already going to the NC double A tournament. They win the Ohio valley after defeating Belmont last week and they had their sensational star in job Mirant. So we'll talk to their head basketball coach about John Moran and that basketball team and went to the tournament last year, and we're in that mode right now where we're waiting to see what the field of sixty eight will be a lot of good college basketball yesterday. You had Duke UNC, obviously being the headliner with Duke getting their first victory up against UNC this year Zayn Williams said did play in the game. And we saw a Zion and the importance of Zion in the last two games since coming back from the injury. And it's it's unbelievable. And he's a freak what he's doing coming off. That injury. Any is not miss a beat since returning in the big east. You'll have Villanova and seats at hall Villanova comes from behind. In regulation to tie things up yet into overtime. And they do get a victory up again Xavier and a controversial as Seton Hall and Marquette game a lot of bad officiating. Seton Hall the lead by their head coach Kevin will do punch through and they're back in the big east title game at Madison Square Garden. We also have a whole lot of other happenings in college basketball. You had Virginia going down. Florida state does punch through and you have a whole lot more cooking as well. So a covered all throughout the show, but you really start to if you haven't paid a college basketball for most of the year you start to pay attention this week. And then everyone's a college basketball expert come Sunday after the brackets are unveiled. And because all of the sudden everyone starts to go. Here's where I'm going to go with this team. Here is going to go with that team and all that jazz. So, hey, we'll see you gets it hopefully, my temple owls do get in which I'm not in great move to start off this show. And we'll see how it goes for the next four hours. My Alice lose they were a lock on Saturday to get it after beating UCF, and then they lose to Wichita state. And that's not the real reason why a bad mood. I'm also took the train in which is fine. Some clown was smoking a cigarette. Who smokes a cigarette on a train was very inconsiderate? Then the subway that it usually take to get down. Here was not running side to take a taxi and I get an attacks. Tell the cabdriver corner of Hudson and halston, and I looked up and I go, we're nowhere close guy goes. Oh, Where'd you say gotta go Hudson and house, then he goes, oh, I thought you were going to tell me when to stop. So it's one of those nights. And then last week I was playing basketball and I suffered a back injury. And really couldn't move bunch this week. So it's been a whole lot of fun. However, though, we're here to talk some sports. So we'll get that off the chest. We'll get the venting session out of the way right there, Ben Horowitz. He's on the other side of the glass, he'll be with us throughout the entire show. Good to see Ben here again, and Susumu Iraqi, am I am. I all right. Did. I did. I get the name. Right. Can I get a thumbs up? All right. So I got the okay. That was a little bit difficult. I had to stall there for a second to make sure I got the name correctly pronounced, we just go suss just sauce. What the boys are calling them. In the newsroom, I would have been nice. If I would have been a friend of the program here since it is my program, and I would have been told before it went on the air that it just sucks. It was worth the price of admission to see you attempt to name. I did a good job though, while done, okay. Times. Did you practice that one in the mirror? I didn't. I wrote it down to my phone though. And phonetically spelled it out so SaaS though, okay? Yeah. It's yeah. It's okay. The reason I had to you say, well, I say Susumu, but okay. As long as you get it. Right. I look I've gone through my whole life. Everyone has butchered it so badly, and I'm just used to see. But that's BS. Hey, here's the thing. I want to get the name. Right. And this is not third grade where the teacher butchers your name, and you sit there for six seven months before you finally tell the teacher that you're not saying my name correctly. I want to make sure that we get things. Right. You should seen. My third grade yearbook. Butcher. Also, the spelling of it. It's even worse. It's just like my last spelled Iraqi A R A K I and then I look into my third grade yearbook one time, and I still remember this, and it still makes me feel angry to this day. It was a rotter. Oh how. Yeah. How well no fence even though I do care about your name a little bit. We gotta get to the sports talk. So nobody cares. What to start to the program? It's going to be a doozy, folks. So let's start with the NFL. We'll get to the Kareem hunt situation will get to the tyreek hill situation later on in the show. Let's start off though with the moves and the big moves that have happened. Odell Beckham Antonio Brown and love the on bell. Let's start it off with me with the one. That's the most shocking. To me. And that's Dell Beckham it's a great move for the Browns. If you're a Cleveland Browns fan, you should be static. That's a team that's being aggressive. I think your team as the favorite even before the trade. They were the favorite. But now without a doubt, they're the favourite and the AFC north, and I get it's early. You wanna see how Freddie kitchens is going to manage all these personalities, but on paper you have to like this team with Baker may feel Jarvis Landry the defensive names Odell Beckham, and we'll see what Kareem hunt. Disney Sumi be assuming be able to come back and play well after serving the suspension this is a team though. With a lot of talent. This is a team that played better than what a lot of people expected last year. And now they're in a very good spot in this north. I love the move for the Browns. We kept on hearing the rumors even be heard the rumors though, I wasn't really thinking that this trade was going to happen. Jay glazer. The first person on it. I like Jay a lot. He's been extremely benevolent to me and my young career. I wasn't buying though. After the giants giving Odell Beckham as an extension that they were then going to flip them and trade him the next year, and they get back a one three and Djibril peppers. Now. You could look at that compared to what the Steelers got back for Antonio Brown and sale. Yeah, they got a lot back for me for a player of the caliber of Odell Beckham. I thought you had to get more back. You didn't do awful. However, though, I think you need to get more back than a one a three Andrew bell peppers and Djibril peppers could end up being a good player. He's not a great player yet. He did some great things in college and the National Football League. So far, he's been okay. He's been good. I think though that the giants needed to get more back. So I'm surprised they made that move. And a lot of people are saying, oh adele's a cancer. Oh, Dell's the bad guy. Odell there. So Dell's that I the chance to meet him once spend an hour with them an event with him. He was extremely kind with this time to young children. And then we did a little bit of interview. And and he was founded was younger in his career. So people do change. I'm not saying Dell is a choirboy. Now, this is getting too big legal mess is off the field. It was more of an teammates love them in the locker room. But clearly there was disconnect there because he didn't love Eli manning. And he went on ESPN with little Wayne did that interview. I thought that was foolish. There's some growing up maturity issues that do need to get resolved. However with though del Beckham. I still think this is a guy that yes, he's about himself, but he also wants to win. And we know he's a heck of a talent. And you take a look to the I fifty nine games of his career. He has better numbers in the first fifty nine games, and Larry FitzGerald, Jerry Rice Antonio Brown, Calvin Johnson. And many many more great wide receivers. This is a great talent. And if I'm the giants if I'm trading in which they ended up doing I would have wanted more back to be happy. If I was a giant span than a one two three and Djibril peppers, so Cleveland, you should be pumped. You should be grilled. It seems like it's a full now changing tune in Cleveland, where it's been as you know, years and years and years of off off of football no quarterback though playmakers. Now, you have significant playmakers. Now, you have what we think is the real deal like quarterback and the dog pound should be a raucous atmosphere. As always now has something to actually cheer for something to actually look forward to with this team. I wonder kitchens will be as head coach. We'll see how that will play out. There's gonna be some pressure to win and there's gonna be some high expectations. So you want to see how coach does manage that? Number one. But you gotta give a lot of credit to John Dorsey and the job that he's done quickly turning around the team that won sixteen. Being positive last year. And now in a position where we could be seeing Cleveland Browns playoff games or playoff game. Now with the raiders they get a B. AB got his money. A B got his new team my question. Now, would they be even though it seems or miss the big chest as they call him? Or is he calls himself? It seems to be a lovey dovey now, and they made some other moves Trent Brown. They get Williams the receiver from the chargers now jumping chips to the raiders. And you wonder even though Mr. big chest is all happy. Now when this team, let's say goes four and twelve and they have some bad losses in cars inconsistent. Because last year he was awful to the first few games of the season before turning it around will AB remain happy. And that's something that you always have to wondering guests on because of the player that he is. He's a great player. However, what he pulled in Pittsburgh. And it wasn't only him. You know, Big Ben Colbert Tomlin. They're all part of the problem as well. What he pulled though it worked for him because he got his money. Got his new team. However, though, it's something that I have a little bit of concern about and I've changed by tune on AB great player. Someone I used to want to my team. I wouldn't want him. Now. Even though I still think a lot of great football because they didn't like how we handled things on the way out in Pittsburgh, and we found the also get a resolution for the other Pittsburgh star former Pittsburgh star and love EON bell. He's going to the jets fifty two and a half million dollars out early the week. We thought it was thirty five million guaranteed ends up being twenty five billion guaranteed. I would have thought that Levy on bellwood a got a whole lot more money. And he sat out last year sacrificed, a fourteen and a half million at the time. I understood it I get it. And I guess he can't second. Guess it. If your love EON bell now, whoever us on the radio, we could do that. And when I sit here, and I look at the numbers, they say, yeah. You would've thought the contract would have been a lot more lucrative. And it was not a good move for the jets. He gets. Sam darnold some help 'em. We'll see what else they'll do to try to improve this football team for this upcoming season. Ravens. Make some nice moves. Earl Thomas Mark Ingram. Kansas city. They get the Honey badger and the lines give a big time contract. The trae flowers. You knew it was going to get paid ninety million fifty-six guaranteed, and we'll see how that worked workout for the lions as he gets to join his former defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia. And this is another patriot. That was a big time contributor a guy that came out of nowhere made big plays in multiple Super Bowls. And now, you wonder what he will look like away from New England. So here's the deal opened.

"GW. I was looking at the map a little earlier, and and it's it's pockets here and there, but there's some around Bartlett mile atrocity blinked last night. But it never went out. Thank goodness. But there's pockets around Bartlett Shelby farms at downtown Memphis in Whitehaven Frazier. So the not only is your alarm going off this morning. Maybe you do like I do and just sit your phone alarm, but you may encounter some stop lights that are out to so treat those as four ways, and it's still messy out the it rained on me all the way here this morning and not a heavy heavy rain like we saw last night. But it's pretty steady one thing that can make your day longer is when you get rain like this. And then you realize you probably should have replaced your wipers last week. The and you try to time it just right by setting the. And it just. Yeah. I am really disappointed. I need to remember the wipers that I put on there. I learned a long time ago. Tim there's certain things you don't go cheap on like don't buy cheap. Teas you get the good stuff. You don't buy cheap mayonnaise. You get the good stuff. You don't buy cheap windshield, wiper, wipers windshield wipers, and it means spending a few more bucks and getting some. And so I don't know why these are all my truck now. 'cause I remember buying them. Last summer we were in the mountains, and it was raining. And I remember having a guy I need windshield wipers because the other ones were driving me crazy. And they didn't last very long. So, but you know, I've spent some money before you like rain X and different brands like that. Like, you know, those windshield. Wipers are great and quiet. Oh, they're just awesome. So you get what you pay for. That's exactly right. You don't go Chievo, which we don't skimp on the wipers for your windshield. And he don't skimp on toilet paper. Toilet paper something else too. And I've threatened some places before, you know, carry some in my bag and take it myself because you know, they got that they got that John Wayne toilet paper in some places rough and tough and don't take it off anybody. Yeah. Yeah. They do. How did we get we go all the way from L rained MLD w to toilet paper somehow in that? But you may have a power outage this morning again looking at the outage map, and there's tweeting what somewhere between three and six thousand something like that ended that number changed over the the evening. I I don't I don't know the specific numbers. I know Heather York spent quote in the number throughout the morning. Yeah. She may have that in coming up a few moments. But like here it is.

"Being intentional. It means you can't put problems off. Did you have to dress them in the moment? And guess what that's more difficult than going with the flow and pretending the problem doesn't exist, but it's actually less difficult in the aggregate because you're constantly dealing with the problems as they arise. Okay. Now it's time for our added value portion of the show this or each talk about something as added value to our lives recently. Well, you know, I visited a lot of albums recently, but this this new black album is called him east Atlanta, love letter spelled six l. a. c. k. right, right. The kids are spelling black these days. It makes sense because we're in this digital world where for search engine results. You can just type in the word black at on Google when you're just going to get the color palettes or a Wicky pedia description on the absence of light or something, but it's crazy. It's It just like. was just like one of other favorite albums I recommended earlier this year, lovely the band that's literally their name, lovely, the band, all one word. Oh, because they went to Instagram, like was lovely available. Of course, it's not because it's one simple word and so like, well, let's just registered lovely the band and and that that's how that became their name. There is going to be called lovely, but and so with with black, he is actually lives out here in up in the valley now up in van Nuys, but he is from Atlanta and his second album, which man it's, it's like this beautiful minimalist production. He and he does it. It's it's sort of like Aren b, but with a with a hip hop flair to it, for sure. I mean, and in fact, he is he came from this, this battle rap scene, and then he started doing Rb songs and there's this, this sort of melding of that. But with this overly simple but aggressively intentionally simple music behind it. I love his first album. It's one of my favorites of the last five years. Probably my favorite albums black. Bear from Andrew bell. It's called free. Black, I think came out twenty sixteen and I was late to the game on that. I would have been my favorite album that year for sure. But yeah, this just came out to second album and you can tell he's intentional with every song. In fact, I think I'd like to play this out at the end of the subsoil with the intro to that album, it's called unfair. There's this lyric in there where he says, I don't wanna fight or be a war with you, but you got to want the same things. And that's really what we're talking about. This whole episode is like, look, I wanna be your part. I don't wanna fight or we don't get into war together, but we have to want the same things. Right? Yeah. It's just funny when I think about all the pernicious relationships that I've had in my life and you know, all of them being. I mean, I look in the mirror and say, like I had a lot to do with it. I mean, for all intents and purposes my fault, but. The fact that I stayed in those relationships in kept keeping those pernicious relationships going. It's just wanna like shake my, you know, twenty year old self and be like, dude, what are you? Why are you working towards nothing? You all?
