I can't think of another player that they could have signed to a one year deal like they did him a year ago in january and still have had in a year of kovin to have somebody come in and have the kind of profound impact he had on a team. You had to have a personality like he has which was really outgoing. He's a kind of gregarious guy. Everybody on the team lights. Not just what he does on the field but in the club house the energy the zone as a total package in every plays he's revered is kind of guy that he's so likable that he can play at boombox with salsa music at three in the morning on the team bus from the airport hotel.

What Happened To Connie Converse
"In nineteen twenty four elizabeth eaton converse was born into a devoutly religious family being by the nineteen forties. She changed her name to connie and moved to new york city to pursue music. She spent her twenties writing folk songs and rebelling against her traditional after little came of her musical ambitions in new york. Connie moved to ann arbor michigan in nineteen sixty where she took an editorial position at an academic journal by the age of thirty six. Connie was struggling with her mental health in particular and affliction she referred to as her blue funk. This was made worse. When in the early seventies connie received two devastating pieces of news. She lost her job and her doctor told her she needed a hysterectomy. After turning fifty in august nineteen seventy four. Connie converse said goodbye to her brother and friends packed up volkswagen beetle and drove away. Officially she's never been seen or heard from again in her final instructions to her brother. Connie asked philip to pay her health insurance up until a certain date. She never explained. Why but philip worried that something terrible would happen. When that day passed searching for answers. Philip found a filing cabinet that belonged to connie in his antics inside. He found old journal entries poems notes and a farewell letter addressed to quote. Anyone who ever asks it read. So let me go please. And please accept my. Thanks for those happy times that each of you has given me over the years. And please know that i would have preferred to give you more than i ever did or could i am in everyone's debt. Philip did as connie requested. He let her go for thirty five years. Never knowing if she was alive or dead always hoping she'd return but from the moment she laughed. Philip and connie's closest friends feared the worst they own about connie's blue funk for quite some time though. Connie was never officially diagnosed with clinical depression. So far as we know in her farewell letter she wrote as an over educated peasant. I've read a good bit about middle-aged oppression and no several cases other than my own. According to establish psychiatric consensus those who suffer from major depressive disorders tend to lose interest in activities that previously brought them joy in connie's case when she moved to ann arbor. She stopped writing music. But even while living in new york connie's lyrics described feelings of isolation in her song called. Sorrow is my name. She wrote from the perspective of sadness is self sneaking in and out of people's minds in the bridge of the song sorrow kroons. And if you fear me i will come in haste and if you love me i will go away and if you scorn me i will lay you waste and if you know me i will come to stay. Perhaps connie wrote from her own experience overcome by a deep unshakable sadness that she felt would live inside her forever. She certainly wouldn't be the first person to live with undiagnosed depression in fact historians theorized that many historical figures battled similar mental illnesses before they were ever fully understood for example. Both frankenstein author mary. Shelley and president abraham lincoln reported experiencing significant bouts of melancholy. They'd regularly fall into deep sadness often unrelated to the events of their day to day lives. Some scholars have interpreted these spells as episodes of clinical depression diagnosis. That didn't exist in the eighteen. Hundreds when both lived almost a century later as connie struggled with her blue funk there was still an incredible amount of debate surrounding what constituted and caused depression throughout the nineteen hundreds doctors around the world published opinions but the medical field never reached consensus early. Researchers like sigmund. Freud believed depression was the result of traumatic experiences of course psychologists today understand that the causes are much more nuanced and multifaceted. They include both genetic and societal factors and this understanding started to take shape in the nineteen seventies when clinician set standards for diagnosing and treating clinical depression then in nineteen seventy five one year after connie disappeared doctors. I coined the term major depressive disorder.
What have we learned from the Pfizer vaccine rollout?
"So i know in that. Within the last few weeks and month there's been millions and millions of devices of coronavirus vaccines going into people's arms. All around the world and one of the front runners as we talked about in detail yesterday. Is the fires a shot. So when we've been looking at things in a clinical trial setting get an idea of safety and efficacy and all of those other scienc- words now that we've seen this thing rolling out in millions and millions of people globally. What extra detail do we now have about. Especially the sizes shot just to really tease that out. A little bit from what you said is the trials have been done on an average of maybe forty thousand people which means twenty thousand people get the vaccine twenty thousand people gates the placebo. All that tells you is does it work and is it safe. In twenty thousand people compared to placebo. So what happened. In in the phase three trials of pfizer moderna and astra is that they showed effectiveness to a varying extent and they showed that there were no serious side effects and therefore good to go to approve and release over. There are more daughter to balut tat. Which is what's happening here in australia. So that's to but rare side effects are only going to emerge after the trial just rare side effects but side effects where in the real world. You're not as selective as you are on the trial so a good example of that with pfizer. Thanks seniors the in their trial. They did not recruit people who had a history of nfl shock of severe. And what happens when it was released. One of the components almost certainly was causing antic shock and people who are susceptible and therefore. Now there'd be very careful about fis are and allergy and people with nf alexis. Let's assume for example that the norwegian norwegian cases of these frail terminally ill. Let's assume that that is linked to the vaccine. Oh vet still a question as we record this corona cast then what might happen as a result of that is even. If it's just precautionary you might say. Look people who are over. Eighty five frail and if you think that they might die in the next few months. Don't give them this vaccine just to be so you kind of refined the indications in other words the group of people for whom this gets the you get the vaccine and it's really only possible when you re rolling out to millions and millions of people and might be a one in a million side effect which is really really serious which you can't avoid by refining. Who gets it award in which case the vaccine might have to be ceased and move on to another vaccine and those are the things that you learn as you move on now. The good news as we said last week on krona cast. Was that when you look at. Israel still not being published but if you look at israel where they got really great electronic records that are integrated and they compare the people that they've immunized with the people yet to be immunized it looks as though there's reduced transmission which is really the the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for these vaccines. So you're in good things and you things that are maybe problems and It's unprecedented that within a year of this infection hitting we've not only develop vaccines and trialed them that they're now have been given to maybe twenty million people a lot of which has recorded in good electronic databases so that you can get onto this post marketing surveillance. I mean some drugs for example. Take years to find these side effects. And sometimes they're missed for years because doctors are really lousy at reporting side effects. And then you find the find the might this way. They're going to be find out much sooner more effectively and be able to find out whether it is coincidence or really attached to the vaccine

Is this the right time to start something new or is that just a stupid idea. Well let's hope it's a stupid idea because today that's what we're talking about how powerful it is to start something stupid with the author of the book the power of starting something stupid. My friend marketing impact academy alumni. Richie norton well richie. Thank you so much for joining me today. I'm really excited to do this. You just the finest person in the world. Oh man you're the best an honor. I've been waiting my whole life for this very moment right now. I know for real though. I love you so much. I know you're asking me questions yet. But i've done mia. i've been there. I've followed you've taught me everything i know. Everything i say is straight from you just coming through my mouth. I dunno honestly so grateful for you. And what what you do for the world. Oh my gosh check is in the mail amazing because like literally this week. I have a hard copy of your book but for some reason. I bought a kindle this week and i'm just like oh my gosh this is so inspirational. There's so much of that. I need the world to hear right now because now more than ever i think people are really starting to realize nothing is certain d- i have to be in control of my own destiny and there's so little that i can count on that. Maybe now is the time that i considered like doing my own thing. It's sort of and you're just really motivate people to do that. Yeah you always had that kind of spirit you know. I don't know even as a kid my mom would encourage me and but also encourage my own willingness to try and help other people like the kid that no one else likes. You know i'd go and hang with that guy you know what i mean. I guess that's in my nature but as far as it into things that serve people enter. Entrepreneurial i mean i grew up with that by dow is entrepreneur. My grandpa was an entrepreneur. So he kind of taught me to think in different ways you know and so. I don't know if it's innate or learned but i've definitely been doing it for a while let's are the people who struggle with it right because we both work with those types of individuals now and i mean in the intro. People got to hear about how vast your experiences like. You're one of those guys who knows something about freaking every word making it up as a but there's i find that there's two different types of people those people who are like the really down to experiment to fail and it's like it's just not a big deal. They don't even think twice about it. They just leave. They jump to go for it. The hardest people for me. I feel like to reach in the ones that. Keep me up late at night. I suspect this is probably true for you to are those people who are so paralyzed by perfection. The ones who worry endlessly about is the right thing. Is this the right time warner people are gonna think what if i'm doing this wrong and i just i don't have that gene and i know you don't either but tell me about those people who you've worked with that maybe when you first working with them like how did you help them to break through that mentality. 'cause i know there's people listening right now that's that's me my hands are up to. How do you break through that. Okay this is my head spinning always examples but let me back up real quick lake. There's the voices that are outside that we hear there's the voice in her head that we hear and we tend to actually the had a lot. We also start to filter the voices of others almost in a way to say what we want them to hear. Even if it's negative someone might say like you're saying goes out of business and they here. Yeah but that's not for me. No no that's not what she leans set that it is for you. I remember i was sixteen years old. I wanted to make some money. I told my dad. I wanna make some money in the summer. We'll get like a minimum wage job. Picking up trash at like the local carnival. Or whatever i was going to do. He said worst add ever. He says you don't want to. Who says that he said no. I'm from san diego. He's he's a go to el centro and ask the watermelon farmers if you can either irregular sized watermelons from them that they couldn't sell to the stores because they're oddly shaped and i'm like okay. He gave me a little bit of seed money so to speak and filled up our family. The antic out the seats with these water mounts me and my brother. I was sixteen. Fourteen came back. Call up all my friends. parents said. Hey guys watermelons. It's almost the fourth of july. Do you want to buy them. They said yes. Probably its climate kid and whatever. I'll tell you what i learned from this process. I made more money in one day on the fourth of july. Then i would made the entire summer. Working minimum wage is what entrepreneurship learnable skill. It's just that sometimes we're not getting the right voices. We're not listening to the right people or filtering those voices in a way. That doesn't serve us about that. Filtering process like so. Do people know that they're filtering. How do you change the filter right. So we're filtering. It's like cognitive bias. Like we all. Let's yeah yeah. no it's true. Let's play with that for a second like you mentioned people who procrastinate and a lot of people associate the whole chapter my book on procrastination i've studied a procrastinator myself and people associate procrastination laziness when in reality the trait most associated. You can google stuff. People don't believe me the trait most associated with procrastination is immediacy. And you have to always do something right now.
How to Grow 10X Your Size with Zero Growing Pains with Darius Mirshahzadeh
"The real darius and selena gomez you something in common and fire nation as we in the introduction. We're talking all about the invisible scale today and just how is going to help you. Rock your business in twenty twenty and beyond so first off darius what is the invisible scale break that down for us me and my book the core value equation. We essentially talk about when you build a core value driven organization. You have an opportunity. And i say this as nicely as possible. The word core values has been hijacked by marketing. Hr people and when it gets taken back by the entrepreneur in the business owner and it gets executed for strategy and execution. What ends up happening is three three things happen. As you can create the language the organizations that the core values it ultimate decision making engine and it creates a basically a magnet for talent. That are the right type of talent for the organization. Well a again making people who don't want to be part of the organization like they'll never show up for the leaves. You gotta be super authentic about the core values. We talked about that in the core value equation. When that happens it creates thing. I call him visible scale. And so what happens is is you get organic holistic like a growth that happens in the organization because you're essentially removing organisational inefficiency the friction of people who aren't on the same page not sharing the same values not working the same way they kind of remove themselves out of the equation. And you just get this kind of like smoothness. It's almost like a you know like when you put. Wd forty a doorjamb. In what i say is when that happens. There's almost dislike. Like i don't want ether in the air and it causes everyone to move to senator quietly holistically and i call that invisible scale and it's really where there's an invisible manager the core values in this case looking over the shoulder everybody and and and they're looking over each other shoulders and when that happens you start to get really really high velocity of growth. Because you're not you're not dealing with all the bull essentially so most companies have super inspirational and motivational core values. You know there's just plastered everywhere. Their you know just meant to get people fired up but you are a believer that core values don't have to be nice can you expound on that i'll go back to what you said before most companies have these really inspirational i sometimes they aspirational values. But i challenge each and every one of you to if you're the ceo entrepreneur foundering or one of the founders. Close your eyes and see if you just know them off the top of your head. And the data shows that fifty percent of them don't and they're the ones that create them which is kind of a joke and then i challenge you to go grab ten of your employees your employees five year depending on the size you orgainzation and don't give them an opportunity to look and say what are the core values of our company and when they don't know them nine times then you'll know that those inspirational words on the wall are kind of meaningless by the way that stayed on this ninety three percent of companies more than sixty percent of their employees donna the values. So i just say that you don't really have is and you have a mixture of core values. Just don't have a common set of core values so it's one of those things where if you really want to get to having core by driven organization. I've learned it. It's really simple. A they have to be unopposed Unapologetically authentic they have to be what you are because what most organizations do they start saying these things like where people centric and then they treat their employees crap or the or it's all about the owner or you know they say things that their marketing and hr team want them. Say to sound nicer. Vanilla are boring and boring is not really probably the option. But they're doing it to be safe and you know it's just not memorable athetic. And then they just fall flat on their face. And what i say is listen. Let me tell the question. Can i curse on the show. I mean because i was gonna say it like it is. If that's cool. It's okay fine. I will well so basically if you're a jerk that's my nice way of cursing you're a jerk or even then own it be unapologetic about it because when people get there they're going to know that's what you are and when they get there and they know that's what you are. Well then they're going to say oh this is just like everywhere else. They're full of it. So when you're unapologetic about the values not antic. And if you're a jerk organization own like i'll give you an example Uber went back. Which house clinic was the ceo. One of their top core values was to- stepping like literally stepping on each other's toes right and now one could argue that that went sideways on them. But the reality is is that they grew into a multibillion dollar company because they are unapologetic about what they were and they got after it. So my whole thing is they don't have to be nice if you're if you're a warrior culture own it if you're a rainbow pink unicorn and culture own that but be what you are
As vaccination begins, how can we convince hesitant Canadians to take the shot?
"Sabina for miller is a clinical pharmacologist. She runs the pillar foundation for health. Care which helps to fund among other things. The delana school of public health institute for pandemics aloe subpoena old. Thank you for having the you're welcome. I think it's a really important conversation that we need to have today because people need to be armed with ways to convince people who were vaccine hesitant. Yes i completely agree and i think fat what really needs various as the fact that antibiotics are not this one big bucket their spectrum. You obviously have the ones that are completely untouchable. And nothing you say. Do really work to To address their fears. You know for instance. Was that child when you're the died of tetanus recently needed months in the hospital for recovery and barely made it but the parents still refuse the second dose of de tap these are these are really hard to reach and addressing their fears. Will frankly deplete you. But then there's also that other bucket the ones who are on the fence and these are people who are just constantly bombarded but fear based messaging the type of messaging that really affects them subconsciously. Very often there are new parents. They're worried about keeping their children save. They're fearful they're stuck in this analysis paralysis or getting this conflicting information from various sides. And they just don't know who to believe. I think addressing the fears that this subset of the vaccine hesitant folks have will be so critical in ensuring that there is a strong uptake off any of the vaccines that are currently in development and put. Where have you found a vaccine hesitant people congregate what are those groups and discussions like. Can you just describe the communities where where you see this happening. So are and so for me. I actually was exposed to these communities very recently. It was in two thousand seventeen when i had my son and parenting was whole new phenomenon. And so i joined all of these mom groups on facebook and that is really where for the very first time. I came across all of this vaccine. Misinformation and other scientific disinformation as well as a lot of sensational provocative content. That was being shared. So i started getting more involved with a lot of these. Evidence based type thing is given my background in science as well as some of the vaccine on fence groups these are large groups on on facebook they have upwards of fifty to one hundred thousand people in each of these groups and of course you have some of those that have been very hardcore antics groups but you also have several of the ones that are people who are just on the fence and just want more information and they just don't know how to navigate all the information that's coming to them and he went on on mom groups. I can tell you that. I moderate a very large evidence base parenting group and we have this questionnaire criteria to join our group and one of them is you know what is their stance on vaccines that i can tell you one in three people who are wanting to join our evidence space group Tells us they're hesitant about vaccines and they want more information and they're just not sure so it's a lot more pervasive than you know. Anyone actually thinks that the this this subgroup is as someone with your background in science and pharmacology. What was your reaction when you started joining these groups and found out how widespread that is. I was shocked. I have to say. I was absolutely shocked. I lived in this really nice echo chamber of science people. You know i. I worked in academia. I worked in by attack all the people of my friends my circle for all science space folks. We've never actually you know even remotely consider it. That vaccine hesitancy are antibiotics would be anything but a small cult group like that is what we thought was the case and and for me to to actually exposed to this being stope. I'd spread was a complete shock to my system. Which is why i realized look i have the background. I have the knowledge. This really is public service. Like this is something that people who are in. The scientists need to be advocating for we need to increasing the voice of science and take more space especially in in social media. Where for the most part public health messaging hasn't really been effective in coming across. And there's this huge dearth of information information that really needs to be addressed this massive gap and is really when i started Focusing and i remember when i joined these groups it'd be half an hour day. I would try to answer some questions and then after a while my husband basically said this is a full time job. You're spending hours and hours you know and it would be anything from addressing simple questions to actually writing documents to synthesize all be very complicated information out there too easy to understand like little packets of information and and that's really how i got started in this.
"antic" Discussed on The NBA Show
"And ryan lebron forty six On you that's that bullshit you sent me on on on john's. Somebody says instagram said less discussed this on the show. And i wanna discuss this on the show like you end the home. Either senator you what happened in saving me. Let me let me sit. let let let's. Let's let's get here right so it was basically. It was a moment in time. Lebron was in his early. This was two thousand six. The brian gave forty six eight. Assess by threes. Just crawled grandpa. He he's given it to give it a shot marion.

"antic" Discussed on The NBA Show
"Don't sit around every day waiting for you once in a while back. So is the responsibility of the person. That's getting the preferential treatment to be responsible with. It is what you're saying. Yeah donna it's like anything don't abuse don't rub my nose in the fact that that that this is what it is and we know it to be that but just respect it. Use it and keep it moving. Yeah i but there's also another thing right like the clippers for an office is also trying to appease the players. But they're also trying to appease paul george and kawhi who are on who are contract years both of them right so we don't happen right and if it doesn't happen this year is going to be a vastly different team and that would mean twice in the past decade that the clippers have fumbled the bag with superstar players right. Yep i this was always. This was look. This was always in my opinion. Going to be a really really sensitive way like situation and had to navigate it perfectly able to pull it off. You had a team a couple of years ago. That was predicated on no real stars playing hard as hell us against the world blue collar hard hat mentality and exceeding all expectations. And then you you take dna away when you drop cohen paul george and that changes everything and it just wasn't handled. Well you know and so how can you handle that. What do you do. You have to listen. You chose to come here. We're holding you to the same standard as everybody else. Yes there's going to be a little bending of a rule here and there you might get a night off. That i don't know lou williams might not kit or landry. Shamet may not get it. But we are not going to turn this into the paul george and kawhi rules and then everyone else's rules. That's going to fracture our locker room. We cannot do that. And you gotta be. They gotta respect you you you have to know. It's like raising a kid man even though these it's probably not a great analogy but they gotta have some respect for you like they may not love what you're saying to him but they got to respect the fact that you're stand up there saying hold them accountable for otherwise it turns you lose all credibility and there. They were also mad. That like in this is something. I've seen firsthand that hawaiian. Pg would take super long at the end of games to speak to the press so that means that more than likely like trans was mantras. Herro was talking was speaking up for the team. And speak in. Like lou williams. All these other guys are speaking up and it's like no man superstar. You speak up for the team. it's you know. Let me stop always ducking out or taking an hour and a half when you're not doing anything and go talk to these people right. Well i mean is that a danger no is that it never could see where you might get annoyed by it. But i could say you take care of your own business. They're like hey. I tell a ask why like i don't i don't have a great asset like that. That's my that's my answer to logan. Murdoch asking me pointed questions about the team that i clearly don't run. Hey you know you're run the team saucer shoots all the shots share. And so i mean i do. I think that there's a give and take right like we talked about this earlier. needs to be bit more. Pg bills like needs to be a bit more responsible with their privilege and even weird to say that. I don't know. I wanna say privileged. Let's say with the concessions that they get. They need to be more responsible with that right. And that's at rubbing people's phase or at least be a leader with it right or at least be show a little bit. More charisma and show puts her arm around some players or something right. If this your team and i think the other side of it is these players to get a little bit more self awareness and be like. Hey i'm not. Pg is just not me. i think that's fair I would say that in a team building environment. I would lean more towards the first and the second being the right answer like you guys. You guys have special. Rules like people are going to make accommodations for. You are the best players that comes with some responsibility. It comes with some driving of culture. Some ingratiating yourself other guys on the team so when lifting of spirits like be to whom white much is given much is expected like you have to step up there with great power comes great responsibility. Correct all of that stuff. yes Another delivers in eluded to this before that pg and choir earned contract years right now and pg say su said something. That was very very familiar. He said he wants to retire. A clipper you've heard that before. He's i've seen him sit. There was a graphic that i forget. Who did the graphic but they said it was the quote so when he was in indiana he's like man i wanna i wanna see this thing through guys is where i want to be next year. He was traded because he wanted to leave. He requested a trade to go to. Okay see okay seat. A broad out to oklahoma city when he filming god. They brought him to oklahoma city when he signed when he resigned to being. Okay sees this. I wanna be right.
Alamo Drafthouse CEO On Navigating The Pandemic
"Here's shelley taylor. Ceo elon draft. S shelley. taylor. You the alamo draft house. Welcome to decoder. Thank you glad to be here. I was just reading your bio in the backstory here. I i got to start with this. You became the ceo of alamo draft house on april thirtieth. So you have stepped into chaos. I think elmo actually shut down forty one theaters in march. What was this recruiting pitch. Like like they call you and say hey are you interested. Were already in the works. Just it seems like a wild way to become the ceo. Movie theater chain. Yeah it is. It does feel wild but the it was in the works at christmas wintom and i met and started talking and drawn to this incredible brand and this opportunity to you know. Help take something iconic And growing even larger right and then all of a sudden the pandemic and here we are so. We've got this little issue to get through that we can go back to the original plans. What was just the first day. April thirtieth you show up. You got to introduce yourself to ever like there's usually a script right follows. You say something like i. I just wanna listen. There's like the usual stuff. Was it very different this time or did you just come running the little of both right. I mean you talk about like just really wanting to listen and to get to know people. You don't have the advantage of the water cooler in the proximity But at the same time there's nothing like a crisis to create a need for connection and speed to trust and really fortunate that the company and the teammates i've been so welcoming and and willing to just assume good and thompson and wanna move forward versus having to do some of that initial stuff so it was pretty fast and no one's kicked me out where seven munson and i'm still here. Things are going pretty well considering so i always try to ask everybody to begin about. Decision making frameworks before alamo draft house. You will see a large group of planet fitness locations. You were at disney before that. Tell me about your general way of making decisions. How do you think about evaluating your choices and actually make coming to a decision. I think it's a couple of things one is just knowing who and what you are Is the beauty of everywhere. I've worked has had a really clear sense of their purpose and values and the problems that they're trying to solve in this world So always starting with that framework and You know driving from there. I think that one of the things that i took from starbucks and hug valued over the years is that you always put people into that that equation So when you're looking at a decision at the stake holders it's your customers you know it's the people on your team You know having all those all those points of view and then sometimes it is the broader community depending on what the product is. And so i think if you start there and then you put it in a good good dose of data and a good dose of your gut usually. That's a great way to go. I mean that's pretty simple and obviously depending on the complexity of what you bring in or don't bring in but you know it's it really is values and people and direction to other reason. I asked that question is because right. Now you're managing in a crisis where there is a flood of data. You have a very physical plant kind of business. People go to a movie theater and sit down and stay there for a while. How are you managing the influx of covid information. There's a massively disjointed federal and state response there's people who are refusing to wear masters right before he came on new york city closed at schools. Again it feels like there's just a flow of information about the pandemic and how it's going and how we're handling it you say there's a lot of data but the data is a messy. The points of view are messy. How are you just managing that. Yeah that's a great question. And i appreciate. And i really want to reemphasize the lack of coordinated government approach is like crippling the nation. And if there is a message. And i know lots of people are saying this but if there is a message to our government right now It is critical that they have a coordinated approach. And the way that we're approaching a is one you know just my own prayer experience living and working in china and seeing how this has been approached in the past You know helps watching countries that are you know and businesses in countries that are making good. Decisions helps And then we've just been just trying to take a very steady approach. And that is with the information that we do now and that is not constantly changing and some of that is but there are a few constance out. There you know is how can we make our experience as safe as possible from purchasing your ticket to the minute you leave the theater and we haven't wavered from that you know we've done a lot of you know pretty scrappy fast innovation for online ordering Both of tickets and food Eat a how you come into the theater doing the spacing that people. So that six foot distance we had before it was popular You know we said that we were gonna enforce mass for everybody. We thought about our kitchens creating a smaller menu so that we can social distance within our kitchens. How do we not breathe on to touch food. How do we help. People exit the theater. I mean you just name it. We've taken every single precaution that we can and we've gone as far as we could. So we've just said what is the safest ridge of possibility and yes. There's going to be this constant complex information but until there's something that comes in that says differently we're not gonna waiver And and that's suspend our approach. And i don't know with all the variables out there how anyone can do it differently. Is that a set of advisors team members. You needed to build. I feel like most movie theater chain in a lot of like epidemiologists on staff before covid but now all of us are you know we're all looking for the that expertise while looking for those guidelines. Have you built that muscle and that skill evaluate those decisions. Well we do have a really great source of a lot of people who are willing to help us. Whether it's you know our our p. firm ultimately capital gives us a ton of information and advice whether it's you know our our insurance and brokers on that side bringing a ton of advice and then you know we've got strong relationships with University of texas. Ut you know and the information that you can get you know publicly so you know. We've we've probably done with a lot of people do we. Don't have a ton of money right now. Our resources are very skinny. We've had to kind of do it yourself as best as possible. And we'll continue to to probably operate in that method but it comes back to that need for a government approach to this and the government really could be doing a better job at providing clear guidance that does not consistently changed to businesses and quite frankly equitable to businesses equitable. I just small examples in some cities. We're not allowed to open. Are we can open. But we can't serve food yet. The restaurant next door consider food That just doesn't make sense You know in in how you operate you know what's the logic and a simple clear set of criteria that everyone operates off of because part of the problem. Is this the noise and the and the confusion that goes out to the to arc arc our customers. Our you know it safe here. But it's not safe with you and and people can't discern that you know so it really should be agnostic to the business what what is safe. And what's not to the best that we know today right. Yeah asking for a lot probably well. there's new administration. We'll see how it goes us. One of the things about the pandemic that i've heard from many ceo's executives at this is still rated trends that we already saw coming in some cases. Those trends are positive. We've seen a massive celebration in commerce. Ever already saw that coming. We just turn the knob up. There's been a pretty loud conversation for years about the future of movie theaters and some of that is played out in different ways. Like rom coms. Don't really get made by hollywood but every other netflix show is like basically around calm. And so we've just seen the dynamics of the industry change. I've always thought of alamo draft house has being slightly different than your average trig antic chain movie theater you have. Food isn't experience. You're running old movies. People come there as a social event. Do you see it as this is accelerating the trend. That was already coming or you know you started by saying we'll just get back to work when it's over. Do you see this. As as an aberration on the planet you already had for for your company so yes the world is accelerating in many ways. What won't go out of style. His community on social experiences. And so i think while the industry was right for disruption and racine that alamos secret sauce really right is creating. These communal experiences for people bringing the community together to laugh cry gas. Whatever but have fun together and that won't go out of style and so for us it will be going back to the secret sauce of what makes us special
Argentines bid final farewell to Maradona as national mourning begins
"Welcome into this special edition of espn fc as we pay tribute to diego maradonna. Who passed away today at the age of sixty craig burley with me here in the studio you can clinton joining us a little later on in the program to talk about what it was like to play against him. We also welcome to the show gab. Marcatti and argentine colleague from espn deported. Ricardo ortiz is with us rookie. I want to start with you to try out. Some how important. Maradona was for argentina. Hi guys pleasure to be with all of you. Maradona as the most important figure ever in argentina i. It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football On monday madonna was Was an absolute exception. He was Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most Amazing play on the planet. He was a A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples That people will never forget that. So imagine today You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty
No modern presidential candidate has refused to concede... until now
"President elect Biden is moving ahead with his transition despite President Trump's refusal to cooperate. Never in modern history has a president who lost an election resorted to the antics being played out in the White House. CBS News correspondent Ed O'Keefe reports from Willington, Delaware. President elect Joe Biden, briefing reporters three days after he declared victory, but forced to address the fact that President Trump refuses to concede. I just think it's an embarrassment. Great. Frankly, the only thing that What can I say this Tactful. I think it Help the president's legacy, Mr Pied and spoke out as the Trump administration continues to block the president elect's transition team from accessing federal agencies and funding needed to conduct the traditional transfer of power. And as many of the president's congressional allies refused to dispute Mr Trump's baseless claims of widespread voter fraud. The whole Republican Party has been put in a position with a few notable exceptions of, um Pain. Miley intimidated by the sitting president, Mr Biden is getting support from several world leaders, the heads of Germany, France, Ireland and the United Kingdom, all making congratulatory phone calls once he takes office. The president elect says he wants to re enter the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement, both of which President Trump famously withdrew from In a normal transition. Mr Biden already would be receiving classified briefings from top intelligence officials about global concerns. The Trump administration is so far refusing to let them do so. The president elect said he isn't worried. But there's only one president at a time. He's president. In another example of how this transition is going differently. CBS News has learned that the State Department is playing no role in those calls between the president elect and world leaders. Usually diplomats would be listening in to protect national security.

"Sparring match that will be free to air with donations going to chosen charities McGregor and Pori throughout the idea. Early this week with the two, you see stars publicly agreeing to an exhibition bout that could have zero to do with the UFC. White was asked about the potential charity balloted during an interview with Barstool sports on Wednesday and he said that we offer dustin corner a fights we're waiting to hear back from both of them. Multiple sources told Mary fighting that no form about offer has been made though your technology wise comments on twitter. This support on twitter golden say I accept these dueling fight discussions have have come about in the wake of McGregor revealing conversations from February. We're between himself and dino white which McGregor claims are evidence that white has lied about McGregor not exiting certain fights. Murder announced retirement this past few inciting frustrations with the AFC. Majoring. I in twenty fourteen and portia has improved immensely since then it was McGregor who emerged victorious via First Round Tko. But both both fighters went on to have great success in the AFC McGregor capturing two different belts and so what's going on between Dana White? Conor McGregor doesn't Pori. Different and multiple sources coming in. We have substance saying that the reason why Porty in twenty four that by Bennie go through was because of money issues in that portrayed demanded a set amount of money. and. That money wasn't meant I. Remember I talked about this last week I talked about last week and that. Is Making at the point at the point where he is right now in the highest ever made was about four, hundred, thousand dollars. And at this point in his career is pretty much. I'm not gonNA throw shades another guy but I do believe that guys are driven. I think this important right now is pretty much a gatekeeper journeyman at this point. and. Unless we could be retired soon. That's the time where I can imagine it'd be like what Awesome Fight Games live longer here. And so Hori stance right now what the see also notes. Doesn't Pori a risk could be made of one a bigger fights than conor. McGregor be. In terms of money economics in terms of social media. Portraying Khabib was bigger than could be McGregor. So it's understandable to see as to why someone? Would believe. He's worth a lot of money. So, as of right now as I'm speaking. Doesn't Create Twenty Ferguson by pretty much is off the card. It didn't happen. We could see Michael Chandler Richly Ferguson. We don't know what the true official status is of Twenty Ferguson right now doesn't he's off the table right now. And now we have emporium was conor McGregor if fighting going on a fight that Smith accusing I. One hundred percent do not believe that we are going to see Pori McGregor do a free to air charity fights. I just don't see. It's at all. I. Don't see what rate would risk himself where he is right now currently in his career I must say the guys old I'm not saying at this point now I this. Is the type of person who wants to go cash outs. CONOR. McGregor. I can see him doing it though off the already a really rich guy. In the air twenty twenty, he made about forty seven, million dollars worth a million dollars He made a couple of million with this fight but mostly he made a lot of money coming from private wealth thing. So. Conor McGregor. He's got the money. He doesn't need. It doesn't Pori who just last week was going on being like you know what I want money. I. Want more money in my UFC fight contract I deserve more I. Deserve Five Hundred K. or Sickener K. I'm not really sure the numbers but he wanted something more than four hundred K.. He made last time he fought or made them he made in could be fight. So. WHAT'S FOR COREY I do not believe that Corey is going to Greek McGregor doing a free to air fights. I'll be right now the US using the F. C. does not need to say he doesn't offend. Poor is a great match up for many fighters real bit exciting match up I wouldn't mind to see forty risk to. But as a right now as I'm speaking poor. A. Bigger doesn't need either them. They're really don't. Now they can go and get you know is on the product if they do get out of them. But they really don't need them fight island is going on perfectly fine. We gotTA start in Israel Sonya right now we got sleeping meal going over his trilogy. We Got John Jones moving up to heavy right now we've got new we got a new a new fresh face holding the belt at the heavyweight seen we got young prospects coming up right now we got well. There's a lot of things happening out in the world martial arts that doesn't need portray or McGregor? I believe Pori couldn't negotiated in bumped. By a hundred thousand dollars. That's what I believe if he if his highest salary was four, hundred, thousand on appreciate, it could have argued his way or may negotiate his way to making one thousand dollars. This one hundred dollars more and that's not all lot asking from the FCC. It really isn't. So Dwight Pink. Portray McGregor is worth to happen. I don't know. I generally don't know one can't expect megared coming back. I don't know. Are. Right now does that you have seen white. Hundred to compete. Yeah I'm personally want him. But they don't really need them. I'm trying to figure. Figure right now, what is the current Status Twenty Ferguson because his name has been thrown out there and he was meant to go compete in the next major you have even now Maranhao there are no news going on what expect off the next CFC show. He was supposed to compete knock Tober November. Amount of looking at the future you have see cars it so. Here's the thing. It was the next upcoming major UFC paper events is headline with Kirby Bush's engaging. And their reports going around that it was going to be and twenty Ferguson competing in the combing events. But now that's not really happening. AMC relic, of the Tooth for card. So I believe what worker injured can. They word originally meant to be the chromium events as going to be Ferguson and portier because those two fighters or is not available. they got bumped up to Cohen Events. Some right looking at the next off seemingly a major event before becoming up Saturday October twenty four at eleven am Interesting reading. And so for the I've got to be made odd Bridgeton gay cheek rapport can only near Alexander Volkov Against Wall Terrace. That's interesting because I really both fighters in are both coming off a loss so I don't get why they would be the third fights. Actually. There'd be the fourth bites in your view events. We Got Islamic up against RDA failed the Sanyo's..

"No matter where you are just be safe out there. We're almost done in the year of twenty twenty things in my life have been really complicated things in my employers that have been complicated and my friends, my family, a lot of people in my personal life, their career's have greatly been. Because of Koga, and hopefully, no matter who you are wherever you live, you're doing fine yourself wash hands be safe and if you do intend to now buy so I currently live in Orange County I lived in Orange County area where everything is pretty much back to normal again. To an extent and we are got people are going to restaurants. There's this applause around Orange County where. There's a bunch of restaurants a bunch of people walking around to be honest with you. If you went to the orange color orange positive if you look to the Orange County Plaza. You're going to see that everything pretty much is going by the exact same. It isn't feel like we're currently going through epidemic, but if I want to I, want you to rotate. And when I go on Youtube I. still keep seeing cases, rising cases, rising people dying rising, and I find it so strange. I don't know maybe I m at where I live. I. Don't know how your Arizona California should be going through the whole issue a lot more than any other states. Because California has such a huge population. I San Visco Northern California I know in the North Bay area they're lot more progressive more liberal in their stances. So those places are being are a lot more ghost town ish compared to the areas here in. Orange County but once again, it all goes back to wherever you are hopefully just be safe be safe, stay clean and In general so keep Keep Pushing Board Romo Twenty twenty. So keep pushing forward here. And before it gets the news brief today, I wanNA talk about. Something that I found on. Youtube. Samantha. Twitter. For those who don't know I am a huge basketball fan. There are two sports that I love more than anything else. I love MS, martial arts. And I love basketball I can talk about basketball for the longest time. I'm a huge basketball nerd huge maynard. And currently right now, we are at the finals you're at the NBA finals with the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers. And I go on twitter I. Go on twitter I, follow the NBA you to present these a bunch of NBA analyst from ESPN. And then. There was a discussion being brought about that back in two thousand eleven these evening anywhere Lebron James assembled the super team, the Miami Heat Thousand Eleven. And the loss to the Dallas. Mavericks in the finals. So, the Dallas Mavericks were the two thousand eleven and be champions. Butts, the two thousand eleven, NBA champions were not the best team. And I find that certain fees. I mean tell me that if there was a one hundred men tournaments like a one hundred man. MMA tournaments. One would say person who is in the finals? Though who got the trophy? The one who defeated their opponents in the hundred tournaments. Wouldn't you see that fighter is the best fighter among the hundred men that competed? And then. It's so. It's so confusing to me. That That kind of logic doesn't apply for his mixed martial arts. It doesn't because there is narratives idea when it comes to team sports that the best that the best team. Aren't always the champions. Currently. Right now, we've got the Miami Heat toward the finals. People Sable. If the Miami here NBA Championship then. The. Best Team in the best teams in the NBA, did not win the championship. which I find ridiculous because. I I see people making those arguments that well. The Miami Heat the reason why we got to the NBA finals because they played better basketball but other because he played better basketball doesn't mean you're a better basketball team. And I find that. So strange because an enemy that doesn't really apply. Because we're biologic here. That's in relative sports basketball football soccer. In that the more talented, you are the more better you are. And you don't need to win the champ. If you don't need to win a trophy, you're mean to win a belt you don't need a frigging. Super. Bowl ring. To be. The. Best. and that bothers me it bothers me because in MMA if you would apply that logic in the role Miss Martial? Arts. Then, season north cuts. Would be considered the best fighter in the world. Because he's the most talented. Would say wonderboy Stephen Thompson. Should be raw champion because you know I because he's more technically talented. The cordless one. Michelle Waterson is better than could be argument of why? Because although he has good boxing good wrestling Michelle. Waterson if you're. Ashley by Accolade in the verse, mixed, Martial Arts because Michelle Waterson to me has like a combination wrestling. Karate compensated for providing celebration of. Wartime she's got a good balance everything. I believe that Michelle waterson perfectly encapsulates mixed martial arts. In its diversity. But. There's no way we can go say well, Michelle Waterson is a better fighter that could mean. because she just overall more talented. and. This commies to thinking about Kamar Loose Mon-, when he was talking about Kobe Covington or Cobra company saying, Hey, man I'm better than you because x and Y X and Y X and Y and Clark responders ended up saying. I broke your face and I one. And that's all it. The best arguments are the ones are the shortest and This leads to me talking about a video found Max Kellerman, and the reason why this really does bother me a lot. It's because I really like the fact that an other sport organizations. The idea that you can be the best and you can be number one at something without actually accomplishing the goal. Bothers me. You can't objectively say. Conor McGregor no one's going to say that he's the best. We're going to say he's greats but normal say conor McGregor is the best fighter in MMA. Not. GonNa see that. No one. But he's also talented though like his ability to frequent built financing in marketing and a in commercialism in able to promote himself like chosen smart. Like shell son is older talented. Ally Quinta like sell real estate and stuff. Like Rich Franklin the News Format Teacher Man. He went to college. Degrees of he's I think he's got master's actually. Chill son has got a masters. And he's got matched in sociology. But no one's going to say she'll Sunan is the best enemy fighter out there off the backs of talents because if a judge by the best fighter. Base on talents then season would be the best fighter entire world. And it's ridiculous. It's only in basketball football and stuff. Can you be like well? Athlete A is better than. Beam because his ceiling is higher. which leads to talk about a video that I found my Max Kellerman and this isn't next Gilman on. ESPN. I take this isn't this isn't maximum. Purposely, trying to agitate people with really bad and dumb takes. This is Max Kellerman. Like right after a football over non football, a boxing events and he was doing some interviews. And then he went off on a tangent about towel..
Kanye West leaves fans concerned
"Tiny west was banned from twitter for a whopping twelve hours for posting private information after the rapper engaged in yet another tweet storm. This since deleted tweet included the phone number of an editor for Forbes magazine and the caption that read quote if any, if my friends want to call a white supremacist, this is the editor of Forbes and then had his phone number. That's wild west also appeared to be West. Appeared to be urinating on one of his grammy's with the caption quote. Trust me I won't stop. And I believe him I believe he will not stop I. DO I trust them I definitely trust him on that one. After deleting twenty on Monday declaring that he would not release any new music until he is released from his contracts with Sony Slash ATV. Music Publishing and Universal Kanye West on Tuesday shared a screen shot of what appeared to be a text message conversation with an unnamed adviser who proposed potential game plans and claimed West West is masters are worth more than Taylor. Swift's which I do not think is true I took a poll on instagram and sixty six percent of you think that Taylor's masters were definitely or are definitely worth a lot more. West who Forbes this year estimated had become a billionaire could by his masters or rerecord them. which was the same. You know thing that approach Taylor swift with and the adviser said, but Taylor's caused three, hundred million yours would cost a lot more. I assume the adviser also referring to Scooter Bronze Twenty Nine Acquisition of the label big machine records from Scott for Chata. West. Could also propose a yeezy media and universal joint venture that is equal but not one sided but West replied that he is quote not open to any form of business with universal or Sony. So Conway is. I don't know if you can hear me like doing this while I'm recording but I'm just and break my finger is in my because I just I guess now my head hurts from all of this, it could just so ridiculous. So Kanye. Is Back at it and Kim. Kardashian is just an absolute saint for putting up with all of this because this really is just. So, Connie makes me really uncomfortable with this holy Jesus thing and calling himself a new Moses or whatever now I'm not. Religious by any means I grew up a Christmas Catholic but I went to Sunday school until I got my first communion. So I know there's like this quote out there somewhere that's like I'm your God in new shot have any other gods besides me in a very loose translation, but with Connie being so religious as he claims. It just totally contradicts himself and what he believes and it makes me just really uncomfortable. The whole Sunday service thing is starting to look much more like a call like it was really cute at first but now it's just looking kind of creepy. The whole yeezy brand is very like Orwellian to me and That makes me uneasy when he walked on water at a Sunday service, it wasn't cool it which is weird and they feel like all of these antics like if of these antics came from anybody else. They would be much more called out on it. But because it's conway. And he's just surrounded by so many like, yes people he's not getting really caught out on it people just like ha-had Connie being crazy again, Kanye Saha. Typical and I'm just getting to the point where I'm just very uncomfortable. I. Don't like I really don't support it and listen at the end of the day I hope that he can find help that he means but this is all starting to be a bit too much for me. I I can't I. Don't know how much more Kim is going to last with all of this. I imagine that Kris Jenner is absolutely horrified like they can't keep making excuses for his behavior or acting like everything is okay. Hey they either need to distance distance themselves from him or like diving completely and acknowledged that he is sick like more than just like a statement like actively. Be An advocate for him as opposed to just being quiet and like sweeping things under the rug. Family matter but it's like you have to pick a side. You just have to especially with the platform that you have. You just need to make a decision but again, that's just my opinion. and. You know in the words of Taylor Swift, you just need to come down. I think his value is going to keep going down with literally everything that he does.
Trends That are Changing AI Hardware and Software - with Marshall Choy of SambaNova
"So Marshall Glad to have you back on with us today, you guys have made some great headway in the last year or so since I had you back on the program and I know today, we want to talk a little bit about trends. You've seen in AI hardware. You guys obviously have finger on the pulse here you raise a lot of money got some of the sharpest focusing industry when you look at what are the trends moving dollars. Moving the smartest technical in this world of AI hardware how do you like identify those are the big ones for you. Thanks for having me on Dan requests. He again, there's a number translator going on in the space day and We've kind of narrowed down on really the three most prevalent trends were seeing to our interactions with customers now in the market and really using our view, these trends kind of inform our internal thinking in our our development processes and so first and foremost. I think you know nobody's probably better qualified to declare this. First friend is our CO founder and chief technologist Kounellis Colton. who was the father of multiple? End. His declarations been the multi processing is kind of reducing in its utility in coming to an end of life as a result of the slowdown things like Moore's Law Dennard scaling. So if you look at a lot of people in the space, they're continuing to build A. Systems processors based on a on a core base approach. As cores themselves become less and less effective, inefficient, just putting more more course together multi courtship minimal ecosystem only fields you in an even more inefficient system, and so what you need is something it's going to be more flexible and more performance than the core approach and so on. This, you know we'll. Just for a second year, Marshall I'm aware that you guys spend a lot of time in the nitty gritty hardware, a lot of our audience they're going to be you know our head of compliance at a bank or head of innovation at our ECOMMERCE. They probably understand you know coors at a very conceptual level like, oh, yeah. Intel has those you know something like that. Yeah. But even for me understanding core and multi-core at a conceptual level defining that, and then I guess contrasting it with with what could be would you mind to finding those churches? The folks at home can kind of imagine this? Yeah, I mean think of it this way right I mean in the past with with. Transactional processing computing core banking taxation like that people assembled systems with many cores were. Had fixed functions and usages for those specific software operators. With machine learning and ai the whole software development and delivery model has changed in acquired a whole different type of computational capability, and what that requires is the ability to have a much more flexible silicon infrastructure to run the applications to effectively provide the software, what it wants needs to do data flow execution operation. So that's really kind of the core difference here. Is really being driven by the software, which is mandating the needs for different types of infrastructure. Why do cores ORC with? Let's say software as it was you know, let's just think of whatever kind of software we want. We want to imagine wise a core suited for kind of traditional it traditional software I. Know You made the contrast with machine learning, but I'd be interested in yeah. Yeah I mean traditional computing is the Very predictable and in in deterministic in nature, it's all about calculating to the degree of accuracy. For example, if you're trying to calculate someone's bank account statement, want that to be you know too many many. Ratchet. As opposed to nation and so with a core approach in a traditional compute approach, you affectively hard code in these functions. Antics of these, you know well known operators that are GonNa be used the software.
A conversation on why you should vote
"Welcome back to another episode of that money though friends we have just a few weeks left before the general election it's happening November third. The day is finally here and we WANNA. Talk about the election this episode because many states are going to be having their deadlines for which which you can register usually happening in October depending on your states look that up and we thought it'd be important to visit with all of you why it's so important to vote. We actually asked them of our listeners what are the three reasons that you're voting and? They said in. His off. Yes. So from the Angelo from the Geek Life, we all knew America had major issues but these four issues have shown us how bad things could really be. He's four years. Yeah. A number to worry about a month away from being still being society e and number three I'm O'Brien in. America. And I grew up in fear and don't want my kids to do. So those reasons we love him. Thank you. and. Then we had the folks from lat. Next point of view podcast. They said that healthcare is the number one issue because less people in the US have access to healthcare, which is a big deal when you're experiencing global pandemic number two, the economy, and then number three `immigration is that these are the three reasons for black next point of view. All right. So we got Joe, Sparkman, who said number one to dump trump Helje number to fight racism and number three fight sexism Mcginn. grazes. And then we had one more and lease said healthcare and immigration for sure. So I mean, there's so many reasons to vote for this election. We have a huge opportunity coming up to course correct the past four years but rather than focusing on us whoever is trump and who by the way we've decided on a shelley and mutually decided actually decided but I agree we're gonNA retire putting trump in the trash can there's just too many trump's there. So we don't have to do that here. There's Lore we're not doing it. WOULDA yeah. He's already there. So if you're. Even, you're no longer allowed to put trump in there because he's there's too many of them in there any who so we're going to focus not on that but instead like what are we voting for? It's not just against trump, but there's plenty of things to vote for. So entertain that why are you gonNa vote this November So. Many reasons and I mean ultimately what I want most is for everyone to live there moth antic fulfilling and healthy lives and I think in order for us to be able to do that, we need to have living wages we need to be able to live where we want without fear. We need to have equal access to education and opportunities, and we need to have access to safe in green communities and environments. Amen, I mean all that can go deeper into a few things and I know Brenda you'll share some with us, but I think I vote because environmental justice and Climate Change I. Think are one of the most urgent issues of our generation and trump has shown us that they do not care about the trump administration says that it did not care about that they recently rolled. Back Environmental Procedural protections under the Environmental Policy Act. So basically, you can build your highways, your pipelines and power plants without consideration of a lot of the harmful effects that they can cause on our communities and environmentally, and also our communities, and you know it's not a surprise that most of the communities that are affected by these types of this construction are Brown and black communities. That's so true. So and then along with that I'm also voting because I care about black lives and I care about criminal justice reform, and again, the trump administration has shown this time and time again that they're willing to put the economy before human lives are willing to protect professor percents. Supremacy and that's Discussed the Americans and we've seen that in how we handled pandemic that he literally cared more about you know the economy than human lives especially. Brown. Black lives we've seen how eases uses platform twitter and other social media insight, right wing violence, and that's been really scary for for me to release it lane actual literal. You know the young man is a shit that shot people and what we've known for a long time is that we really need to re imagine how our criminal justice system works and we know that the trump administration has does not is not putting that as a priority and I know that a lot of people will say. For Sure Joe Biden did help author the crime bill and Nineteen ninety-four. But I believe I believe in the power of change and I believe from what I've seen with from Biden including Kamala that they're willing to course correct and they definitely care more about reimagining and change criminal justice system than than trump does that's one hundred percent true. Those are excellent reasons. One hundred percent concur with that. How about you? Brenda, what are the? What are a few reasons I know there are so many reasons but what if you want to call out for listeners? So many definitely underscore everything that you said, but I think it's good for everyone to remember that the president can do so much including appointing, supreme, court justices, and other federal federal federal judges. So a good reason to vote is the courts you maybe don't like Biden. Harris don't even think about them just think about what's at stake. So the president of the United States gets to appoint judges, and if we remember there's been lots of Supreme Court battles from Dhaka from ACA to reproductive and lgbtq rights in this court the Supreme Court is all over the place that he they're mostly conservative. got to a point to super right wing horrible people including Justice Cavanaugh a rapist, and also eight RPG is eighty seven years old and she's battled cancer multiple times. So it's very likely that whoever wins in November they're to be able to appoint another Supreme Court justice and what's at stake we Really can't afford that.
QuakeCon at home
"Quake on. Obviously didn't happen this year. It was at home quite con at home is what they were calling it. Real creative and I'll say this hats off to quite con because I was in their discord and participated on in like the little antics and everything that they did through dischord and twitter and things like that. It was actually like a legit good time. They didn't just throw it like in the towel and say. We're going to do a stream will show some new doom thing and elder scrolls online announcement and okay, that's it. We'll see you guys next year. You know like kind easily just been a bunch of Tech Demos and it still people probably would have been happy ultimate, right. Content but it's nice that they went like above and beyond to make an experience. Yeah. Because quite constant around a quake con has been around long enough to where if you've been it's I mean it's cool. Don't get me wrong like it's the setup is bad ass and it's definitely like a celebration of like doom and quake and fall out like the pathet staples Elder scrolls, things like that. But I think it's definitely like comparing it to dream Hack is a little bit more homegrown community vibe to it. It's not as corporate. The people that are going to quite con have been going for the last ten years. You know like quake built that community of I think the same people are going to grapevine obviously new attendees coming go right there's always out traffic but I think the quake to me feels more of A. Family style experience in a lot of these people know each other dream Hack is more like entertainment rights. So you don't have a lot of new faces every single year it feels like So it was nice that they took care of their own in the sense like you you wanted to to make them feel special and I think they got so many people just involved this which was awesome. Yes. I actually had a lot of fun now of course. With quake CON COMES MY. Annual pilgrimage to quake champions. I've been playing the game since closed Beta. And I shit you not. It's like every time quake conroy around I'm like damn. I'm feeling it I WANNA, play some quake. I'm I'm feeling it. Then I'll play I'm like, Damn this is a lot of fun why why did I stop playing and then I stopped playing like two weeks later I did play some quake this weekend. So did you I'm going to stick with it? It's it won't be like my main game. I don't have a main game anymore. anyways. But I think all all dip my toe in the water here and there it's it's a it's a classic game. You can't beat it. It's one of those games you keep installed right 'cause you can never. You can never beat the joy of playing civil quick game right as especially as an older game to have the ability to jump into something. That's like ten minutes or less at times pretty bad, ass. That's a big positive for big part for us but yeah, it's it's. It's a fun free-flowing game, right like for people that have grown up with those style of games that field there's something about it like you get the movement going it is just you get that direct. Let me tell you what if we have to rank like top ten feelings in a video game like EA sports related I don't know the list maybe this is like a throwaway topic for future episodes. So write it down folks but a direct rocket hit. In quake has to be on that list it really does. Just. That feeling of getting that direct rocket is just it's it's pure bliss. You feel the punch in. makes it makes a different kind of field. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know where it's on the top ten, but it's gotta be on the top ten for sure.

They wouldn't dare change that, but everything that follows needed a new composer. There was certainly intimidating. Joshua Moshier is one of two composers for the new Looney Tunes. I Come at this from jazz background, and when you learn to play that music, you just embody the language of these musicians that you look up to. And so I really approached Carl stalling the same way Carl Stalling was the big goon of cartoon scoring. He started with silly symphonies at Disney, but he made his name a Warner brothers starting in the 19 thirties, where he scored more than 700 cartoons. Stalling applied. The same techniques had learned as an organist accompanying silent films reacting and improvising toe onscreen antics and using existing classical pieces and popular Theo Orchestra runs upstairs tiptoes and gets bonked on the head along with the characters no matter what you anyway, Don't you even know I already have one. John Powell is the Oscar nominated composer of animated features like How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda, Even though he's not part of the new Looney Tunes. He feels Carl Stallings influence so strongly that he uses a sort of Richter scale with directors that he calls the stalling number, You know. So if you say Okay, we only need a story number of two here. That basically means, you know, Tone it down. Don't hit things don't don't go for the musical juggler Calm down, but if madness and shoes in the cartoon world Why not have fun with it? So new Looney Tunes composer Joshua Moshe had some acne sized shoes to fill, and even though he's never scored a show like this before He's actually been preparing for a while. I was always experimenting with how could I do a Carl stalling kind of sound on my own, even going back to college, and I had some experiments that I found on old hard drive said. I threw together on a riel motion submitted that really in an open casting call and got the job. He recorded a full orchestra on the Warner Brothers lot for the 1st 2 cartoons, and for the rest, he had a chamber ensemble of six players at Capitol Studios. There's cartoons like the road runner. And the coyote where there's no dialogue, except for a few minutes. The first time I worked on with those It just looked like this big blank slate. But you realize oh, the dialogue is the music the coyote. His dialogue is below meandering soon. Road Runner, you know, we reference the classical piece dance of the comedians. Joshua motion has infused HBO Max's new Looney tunes with Carl stalling spirit and added some twists of his own like bebop, but the main thing he carried over from stalling Writing seriously funny music. What's so great about Looney Tunes is that they are caricatures, and it allows the music to be a caricature. It's just such a joy to me to participate. In the comedy in an overt way and be part of what's making people laugh. That's all folks for

"Life can be Having said all that joke. Mitch House Apologize I thought his apology was certainly A. More than adequate. I think he's a smart guy i. also think is someone who wants to be liked. This is not a guy who relishes the role of a villain, and you'd hope damage control will will be underway when he's healthy i. mean again I think one of the ironies I wrote about this I mean one of the ironies of all. This is some athletes, some people. Some celebrities just don't give a show. Even tennis and there are some players Lleyton Hewitt didn't give a shit and I. Just want to win matches. If you don't like me, that's tough. Jovovich is the opposite, I mean. Here's a guy who craves adulation and that. Only seems to have added to the layers of the story that he's also so self sabotaging at times, so you hope that he will learn from this. You hope he can get his name back, but right now as as Mary Carillo said. Has hasn't won. A match has lost a match this year, but man is. He made a lot of unforced errors in the during this ten data so They're happier topics. We could talk about Jamie. We have matches going on a Charleston actually. I got a text last night from. A coach in one of the players. They're saying if you if you're done bitching about Jovic. Maybe you could actually talk about some real tennis which. the the US Open again remains it only to be some bumps in the road and again we're GONNA have to drink every time we hear the phrase fluid, situation or case by case basis, but the US Open is still on the calendar. There will be a wheelchair event. I just got a email telling me. The Tennis Hall of fame is Back Open. I have to say that I've come back to Manhattan and things are opening up here, so It's not all doom and gloom, but. As the CLICHE goes we. We ain't out of the woods yet and boy. Did we get a Did. We get a reality check about the nature of this virus In the Balkans over the over the last two weekends Jamie for sure I know the interesting to see I. Mean of course there were a handful of top players along with joke rich. They're playing and. Zero of Corey. have have also tested positive so I think it will be interesting to see what players you know we've talked about this. Players decide to come play the US. Open versus the French Open, especially given that the the recovery time for this luxury. It's based on. You know how serious how your body Reacts Weight Your Age, your health, so many different things so we of course hope that everyone has a speedy recovery, but this could. Could Affect Training. This could affect how they're preparing for the US Open. If it was something they were considering to do so I'll be interested to see how this affects. The US Open and the pool of players who ultimately end up in the drawer larvae. I think that's a really important. I was talking to PAT mcenery yesterday. Who you know? He's I think I'm violating any confidences. He's been pretty open about this. WHO's had Who Basically test positive I think he just negative for the antibodies, but tested positive, but he he he's. He's talked about this and has done some some videos and he said you know he's. Feeling better thankfully, but even now he's still feels text when when he talks for a long period of time, or it's almost like you've got on a long run when he does his podcast, so there are some lingering effects months later, and we haven't really spoken about this, but you know. Grigor Dmitrov was a semi-finalist last year beat Roger Federer Victor Trade Skis at the end of his career, but has always been a dangerous player. Boorda storage would probably be seated. Don AVEC would be seated and Novak Djokovic as World Number One player? So you know if nothing else we're. We're talking about five players who? Could make materially significant players who, in late June or are positive for for Covid so this may also obviously have some real impact on on the US Open just in terms of the draw on in terms of tennis results so. It has been a It's it's. It's been a busy week tennis a week ago, we were speaking with guarded happiness I would say widsom ambivalence, but with with guarded enthusiasm about. The twenty twenty us open and a week later. This has not been our happiest podcast. Jamie No it has not, but Hopefully we're turning the corner here and hopefully there'll be some some brighter days ahead as you said I think there'll be a lot of. Asterix sin sort of different different things that will have to be fluid on of course like you see with the PGA tour now more. People as they've started that have tested positive in people withdrawing here in there, so as these and start to pop up in the US in anticipation of the US Open I think. The US, Ya and players in general are going to have to be pretty flexible and and really take everything. Is that I have to say? I feel for all. All these players who have been out of work for all this time. You know just in this limbo. We've talked about of you. Don't know what you're training for. When things are GonNa Return, and now it's a really tough position to be in as an athlete. Talk about the Orlando Bubble for the NBA and Major League Baseball finalizing a plan there and. As an athlete, especially as an individual athlete when the onus is really on you to make the decision..

So we are seventy two hours into this Kindly, call it a narrative I spoken a lot about this. I've written about this I will say before we can talk. Specifics I'm very surprised at the stem, and this is really world news. I mean I was getting calls. From Aljazeera the BBC and then I just Mary. Carillo is on MSNBC Today. Mean is really become much more than tennis story. For better worse I would argue worse, but this really has been. The kind of story had ripples beyond the the sport and beyond sports period I think a lot of people are. Sort of trying to figure out how we eat back to normal I think we're trying to see I think we're starting to see some real. Sort of disparities in countries, and even here in the United States with how this is not only being managed, and not only with the data says, but just in terms of philosophy, so I think this is the story of really found its way into into a much broader story, and this has become absolutely world news. I mean this is as big as a ten stories we've had since there's been a match and I guess what why don't we just start there? I, mean Jamie. Let's start with. Top Line Impressions of the Adria Tour Novak Djokovic in the last seventy two hours. Yeah you're right to say that tennis exhibitions don't normally get this much press. I think it's always a funny thing with antennas. When people you know who aren't as familiar with the sport, they see results from from an Axa, whether it's early in the year late in the year, and you know somebody, beat, someone, and most people just sort of shrug it off, but it's as you said really interesting to see how much this has really gone across the world. World and everyone is talking about it and rightfully, so because this is a big issue in I think it was from the Gecko, when we started to see the photos and the videos of everything that was happening between the hugging and everything that was happening on the court, and then of course everything that was happening all off the court. All of those images in those photos are really going to be the mark of this event of this tournament. And jovovich whether or not he deserves all of the blame or not will also be the face of this issue for a long time coming he is the organizer of this event of course, and also the oldest in terms of the players that was there and for me. That was something that you know. He really needed to use his his advantage, and the the younger players thereof and born Cora and others even Dmitrov for what it's worth. You know are are younger than him. They look up to him and for him to invite these players to come to this tournament in for him to organize this in the way that he did end to have the results that we had is just It's not great, and I wish that the best tennis player you know the number one in the world right now had thought a little bit more about how he was exposing all these people. It's unsafe conditions and took a little bit more time to think about how what the results and the repercussions of this could have been. Yeah I mean I think no-one covered themselves in glory. I mean there's already been a lot of finger. Pointing joke of its father have having moved on from from fettered. Baby is now pointing fingers at Dmitrov as the culprit, I mean this is just ugly stuff I. Mean I think we ought to pause here in and say we do hope everyone makes. A speedy and easy recovery as as nick, curious I wrote. Nick curious turned into the the Wiseman of tennis Munich. curios thoughts on all of this have been. A lot more reasonable and responsible than anyone else's and the nick curious very rightly says this virus is not a joke, so. Go further. Let's be clear. We hope everybody makes a a quick recovery from virus that we know you know. Six figures over is can be fatal. having said all that I think I mean it's sort of interesting in the grand scheme of things, people who are casual fans or not even sports fans at all. This is hubris recklessness, and here's this athlete who somehow has been living in. Sick enough bubble so that he doesn't realize it. You can pass this on other people and hey. Viruses are really contagious and things like masks really work I think in tennis circles they're also is this added layer of all of this joke of its context. Pat mcelroy saw scented to Chris Clarry that look. Let's be honest, fettered doll Serena a doing things like this very. Very Carrillo as the MSNBC today was very outspoken about Jovic in particular. This is you know I? I think. She said that the guy has lost a match, but he's made error after error after error in this pandemic and I think there is a joke of its context at least in tennis circles where this is the guy who has thumbed his nose at science. This is someone. Just made a statement about what he thinks about vaccinations, he's made his statements about whatever the positive energy affecting water quality. He's already been trouble in Spain for flouting. Social distancing so. And this is remember to someone who was not supportive of the US Open. Because he thought some of the procedures.

"Inland Lakes Wisconsin just south of the state's border with Michigan there was once a house on West Bay Lake a Victorian built in the nineteen tents, surrounded by Scrub Oak, and then northern Pines, it once held twenty rooms. The property was initially used as a rustic resort before it was renovated into a stately mansion by civil engineer and businessman Robert Lamont in nineteen sixteen. Lamont his wife Helen Gertrude would vacation there during the nineteen twenty s, and through his tenure as President Herbert hoovers secretary of Commerce during the Great Depression. The Lamont's called their home summer wind. Lamont left the President Service in nineteen, thirty, two likely withdrawing to the mansion to recuperate after an exhausting and in many ways fruitless effort to pull the United States out of its economic spiral. According to a frequently repeated legend, the couple was having dinner in the houses kitchen one night when the door to the basement shook itself. Revealing the spectral form of a man. Lamont panicked in fired two shots as the door swung shot leaving two bullet holes in the door. Perhaps it was this experience that caused the couple to flee the house. The details of when and why the Lamont sold their property are unclear. What is now is that by the time Lamont died in nineteen, forty eight summer win belong to the Keefer family who also used it as a vacation getaway. Unfortunately the Kiefer's experienced many misfortunes in summer wind, according to one story Mr Keefer passed away in less than a year after they purchased the house, leaving his wife in despair and dire financial trouble. Across the three decades, the Kiefer's haunted. The house deteriorated with neglect, and its land was eventually subdivided and offered up for sale. However many of the buyers were allegedly forced to back out the last minute because of sudden financial disasters. The unlucky house kept returning to the Kiefer's.

"antic" Discussed on Your Own Magic
"Unique up Antic voice, your signature, like it all stems from that seed that single innermost point of your spark. You know, like, what makes you uniquely? You like your the way you express, it the way you do it only you can really put your you're seeing Tron it like that. So in some ways, it takes a long time to figure out what that magic is. But it's all about trial and error. Behrendt experiments experiments practice, make mistakes mess up make a mess like just get in there and to start to work with what you got whatever your materials are painter writer, poet photographer. Whatever she's like, how do you bring that inner spark that your unique authentic self out through the top layers your mind out, the your skin account to the world around you. And that's really the call the creative. Like, no one else can do that for you. You can take classes to toils you can develop skills, which will be really helpful. But essentially, no one else, but you can do the actual work of bringing your magic out into the open until developing some kind of practice, you know, some kind of rhythm routine. So you're in the process because you're never gonna know what that magic is unless you're in the process of actually bringing it out. Wow. I think we all know that too. It's pretty like the thing is like it's pretty the mo-. Like, I think all the truth. We already know down. We already know what's true. We know that there's no shortcut we know that no one else can do it. And even if someone else did come in gave you a bunch of money like hooked you up or whatever like that's gonna pass in. You're going to be left with yourself after it's gone. So it all bends and curves in this. Brought back to that magic that spark inside of you in Arbor late in the relationship developed with it, you know, being in that conversation. Yeah. And that's even though we do know it deep down when someone articulates it hits the core of us. Like, you just did end chills arise. That's when we just are reminded of this truth within so thank you for reminding us of so many truths end sharing your story. Dacia cows really nice talking with you lazing tacking with you. Where can everyone find you connect with you? I would say probably the best the when the best things you can do is pick up, my book spiritual. Graffiti can get it on Amazon.

Andrew luck. They put up thirty four points last week. I get the points again. This week lead this went off lions at the Brock Osweiler lead dolphins were both on the dolphins and this one here, debriefing wise, the dolphins. Look, Frank Gore's become Kenyan Drake has been denied, but print gore the old man is running the ball. Inbetween tackles this showing that toughness weekend and week out and this running game needs to get going for Brock Osweiler. Browns at books teddy lead this one off. I'm gonna go with Tampa Bay here. I think James will have systems some success. And I think there's an emotional shift defensively for the Tampa Bay. Buccaneers Mark Duffner has been named at the new as a new defensive coordinator. It's a shakeup that wakes up players. So James and the defense wake up, no. The news when they wake up from late last week's losses charges they come in, they put points up on a book steep. It's a can't tackle. And space gives up the big play week in a week out and Mayfield we'll have to run around plays, create some things. They went up, split decisions or good for the over which we will get to right now. It's time for bold predictions and teddy you go first, okay. I'm going to start with my old teammate. Adam venit Terry. Adam needs about three or four field goals to get to to be the NFL all time leading score. He will get four field goals and take care of that record in buffalo go break that record old team mate of mine. I hadn't been attended done, get paid. I'm going with two backup. Quarterbacks tastes him hill and Lamar Jackson. I just showed you the tape earlier Bolton. These guys will score touchdowns a backup quarterback score touchdowns this week. Here's only one team in the NFL. The drew Brees hasn't beaten. That's the ravens bet changes this weekend as Greece. Continues his magical March through the record books. He's already all time leader in passing yards. One away from five hundred touchdown passes years. The long term prediction. Not only does he get that down in more, but he's finally the MVP this year. What I am. Yeah, you're right on the money there. Yep. And you know what's coming next. The errands going on every week guys pick every game and teddy you heading. Great. We all Susan. Overall. Ten fifty three and thirty eight there and fifty five and thirty six. They still haven't picked this game Cowboys. Redskins teddy Suzy. The Dallas Cowboys looked great last week, so I think they struggle. I don't know how much consistency they have. I'm gonna go with the Washington Redskins. I'm gonna take Alex Smith and his conservativeness. Okay. He's gonna take care of the football. The Redskins get the win. You know, I better guess what boys last week you did my house. So I'm going to get the Dallas Cowboys this week and it's about DeMarcus, Lawrence, Randy. Gregory about that defense, they'll make big plays. They'll win on the road this week. Final stop of the week challenge flags, Adam Schefter back with us. Adam, Europe, I, we'll shoes you're talking about the colts and the fact that they have one win and is felt like at times they've been a one man team, so challenging the rest of those offensive players to give angel looks of support..

"So you talking about one of the better route runners in the league in because when he steps on your toes and being a defense of back and watching film, when I'm watching this guy dealing runs routes, he gets. On your toes. And when he gets on your toes, that means you get to open up and turn your hips, and he's just he's pollutant his movements. He's becoming a superstar. But on the other side, Sam darnold he had one of the best games of his young career last week, but this is a different beast. This is a different beast, and you look at Sam darnold. I what they know about him. He's gaining competence weekend and week out, and you start to see he's not going to be overwhelmed by this Mike Zimmer Minnesota Vikings defense. He will absolutely come to play. Look for Quincy in noon what to have a big when I think he's going to be the guy he's going to be the difference make over the middle, dumped the ball off. Just make sure he gets the ball out of his hands because the Vikings defense, we'll become into pull phase the Vikings defense than the bears defense. That's tough. Sodhi like in this game. All like what I've seen from Donald like Darren, sane, but I'm gonna go with the Vikings on this one feeling has had a great year, but then one of these times, I mean, diggs is due for one fifty one seventy five, that type of game. I think this may be it. I'll go with the Minnesota Vikings going the Vikings, welding, Kirk cousins guys, weekend week out, started to play better. Gonna get comfortable when his office. And then again, a defense that's that can get after you. There opportunistic Zimmer's always in their era about getting better week in and week out both on Vikings in Philadelphia. The Panthers hit the road and take on the eagles Carolina will try to get off to a better start in this one since they fell behind seventeen nothing last week to the Redskins Philly. Coming off a twenty one point win over the giants. The eagles offense has had their issues on third down this season for the first three weeks. They were about league average. And then for two games, they converted under thirty percent of their tents. But last week they got back on track converting on fifty, six percent of their third downs. Darren, this is a little more of what we're used to seeing from this offense. What makes those so good now on third, absolutely creative. Doug Peterson, does a good job of being creative as far as getting them situations where utilize the back tied in. So they don't stop. These young receivers are really good. Not only is it. Jeffries is Nelson Aguilar..

"What happens when they get till we both back that'll be rolling Philip rivers, he'd he's under the radar is playing really well. All the attention I think is going to the younger quarterbacks the up and comers all the rookies the Mahomes Donald and those type of guys. But Philip rivers is having a great year. His receivers are having a great year. Keenan Allen is he's got clerk coming out the backfield Melvin Gordon's all. Good receiver in areas where he's always been good at, especially this year under pressure and in the red area situationally, he's doing so well, third down passing to Philip rivers is one of the best in the business still, but you just forget because he's over there in that small stadium in Los Angeles. That's right. He's only thirty six, which is baby compared to radiant breeze video. Like in this game, I'm gonna take the chargers, and I think bringing the would convince me push me over the top because Dillon, James, I do believe he is one of the front runners for defensive rookie of the year plan. So, well, you saw what Darren said about him. I thought that this echo all of that this guy's gonna make more plays charges. Well, to me, it's about staying balance on the opposite of ball. Take the Balsam, not so much into Philip rivers fans, but giving it to Melvin Gordon in this balanced attack if they have if talent all over the board. But Milton Gordon is a guy that can easily be office have been BP the season. I'm thinking maybe rookie rookie defensive player of the year Derwin James. As we continue here. Another big match up this weekend got selects the Sunday night. A pair of first place teams meet in what will be a wild scene, Arrowhead stadium Bengals at the chiefs boot teams come in off crushing losses last week, Cincinnati loss in the last seconds, the Pittsburgh, Kansas City loss on that last second field goal to New England. So teddy this chiefs offense as torn teams of part this, what do you think of this matching? This is the track meet of the week. That's what it's going to be. I think I think the chiefs are going to have difficulty stop in the Bengals and vice versa. So it's going to be whatever defense on others decide makes that play. The Bengals defense is going to need a play in the fourth quarter. Maybe a turnover. Third down stop, situationally as when they need to play, play good, but it's going to be very, very hard to stop this chiefs off. I say, I think it's going to you got to keep up. You're gonna keep up with the chiefs win this football game with the Bengals. They're gonna have to figure out a way, not all their weapons looking mix, whether it's Rawls they gotta find a way to get. You know, boy here. You gotta find a way to get a match them point for point because they're not going to stop this Kansas City Chiefs offense putting up points and we got the point you're both on the chiefs. Let's move on..

"Let's turn our attention to the AFC south. It's tight the titans Texans. Jag, all three and three, the colts in the basement, the Texans and Jags square off Sunday. Both squads going different directions. The Texans have won three straight after an oh and three start. Meantime, the Jags have dropped their last two games with their defense struggling. Just look at this Jack defense within the top two in the league last year in things like total QBR takeaways. But this season there near the bottom of the league in those marks as we welcome you to the. Film room presented by variety. So teddy over the past two games, this supposedly defense has given up sixty three points. What are you seeing that looks wrong? First of all inconsistencies, Suzie I'm Doug Marrone talks about miscommunication. He talks about scheme problems and he also talks about straight up. Pull up, you bootstrapped it's time to play, and that's what we didn't see versus the Dallas Cowboys last week, third and eleven this the money down and try to get off the field from the punt. But Colby's lease wide open. I can't exactly tell you what it is here, but judging by the reaction by Gibson, he's the one that sort of miscommunicated there. I don't know if it was scheme or anything, but he's miscommunicated and that's a blown assignment in the red area. You tighten up defensively and look at all this space. And this is about bootstraps right here because Jalen Ramsey he's about on the two yard line. There's Kobe's Lee, there's a chance for you in church to make a play to hit him, get the ball out, stop them on the one yard line. I don't care if you hurt or anything. You make some type of effort to try and stop a runner from. Falling into your end zone. That's pride to me. That's bootstraps. That's pulling them up. That's what I hear from their head coach. Now, they've been knocked down because they were absolutely embarrassed. They're no longer considered the best unit in the league. They have a lot of individually. Talented players is the way I see it right now with they need to do is bounce back and start playing do what von Miller did last week and say it's time for us to come together and play and get to that type of performance. Let's see if they can do that pressure and turnovers. That was the hallmark last year then gotta to give. All right. And then does Shawn Watson, we know he's banged up, but still he seems to be kind of getting his groove. What's the key for him in this keeper him in this challenge specifically against the Jacksonville, Jaguars is the fact that he can use his legs by time receivers. Look, the Jags had best secondary in the league as far as a two of corners on the outside they can cover, they can take guys away, but the use of of dissolve Watson's legs breakdown, the deepest, go, get that extra yard, move the chains, keep those dry. Is alive, and if you can't get in the end zone at the same time, but watts is not going to be able to sit back there and peck pick this team awhile, pick this team, all he's going to have to use his legs, get out of the time to pick this one or do you like, well, I'm not picking the Jaguars based on what I saw last week and what I just said, Suzie. I think the Texans are coming around and Bill get this together. This defense is playing well. They got a couple of linebackers and Cunningham McKinney that are productive and get to the ball. I'm going with the Houston Texans just like the Bob Miller and the Bronco turned up days in three days. Like you saying, I said three days. He turns it around well, they're gonna turn it around in six and seven jacks, find a way to get back on top. They'll be back in the number one, deepest. Going to come back this week do big miles, Jack. You're has a big mess with an angry defense. AFC south tour continues in London for the three and three titans. Taking on the four and two chargers Tennessee coming off a pair of losses to buffalo n Baltimore, the chargers will enter with three consecutive wins the and I'm going to help you out here LA chargers and you love Derwin.

"He's that anchor in the middle that is not going to be easy to run the football against his bare front as they did against Kansas City Chiefs last week. So just with that aspect of the bear defense, it's going to be different for the New England, Patriots offense about the bear offense because you know the quarterback at so much attention. But Matt Nagy loves the versatility of Tariq, oh, and show us what he does and week to week, Susie the the New England, Patriots defense will choose the challenge who who to stop last week versus the. It was Kelsey vis week. It's going to be Tariq Cohen, especially when this shotgun formation with. Him offset, they do so much with him and have so many explosive plays out of his formation visits the take to draw and it's called take two because the offensive tackle. We'll take one in terms of the defensive end, and then he'll go up to block the linebacker. And then Tariq Cohen will have all this space. You get a good block here by the wide receiver. And here we go. So offset in the shotgun take to draw. You have to account with him almost like they did last week, sacrificing pass, rush for pass route disruption when it comes to Rico. And this right here, you see the conflict that they put on this Miami defender almost like a pick situation so he can go outside. It's a good read right there, but watch Cohen. He's going to come here and sell it and then come back inside so scheme. The tights split by the wide receiver, they get the middle of the field open and Cohen's got speed. It's not Tyree kill speed. Okay. But it's fast. All right. So there's that same formation offset in the gun, and you've got to set. The and keep the edge because this guy here he does a lot of things in terms of bouncing in bouncing out. And then I want you to watch this right here. Don't peek inside keep that age because if you do when you peek inside, he's going outside right there and now you're in trouble..

"The ball and keeping teams off balance is really important to great offense. Football, you can't throw the ball every now and you can't run it every down. But if you do both and you know, throw and play action pass and some screens and just some different variety of plays. It makes it hard to defend. You got defend a lot of different players in a lot of different schemes. So when we're not running the ball, well, I think that's really frustrating everybody. So running the balls, extremely important. This week was last week. We'll be next week. It's just lousy still a lot of different things. Particularly impressed with the fares to safeties. Yeah, really good. Play makers very consistent. Amos and Jackson are both. You know, very solid. They work well together. Well, I think their secondary generals very talented, got a good group linebackers roquan Smith playing really wealth high pick Danny trevathan. I've always thought he was a great player, and then you had MAC and Floyd came Hicks, you know, really stout front is best defense. We played in a long time. So. We're gonna have to go and play really well on the road. And he talked a lot about playing on the road this week and kind of what we need to do to get a win. We haven't played very well on the road this year, and we're gonna need to play a lot. There. We played. I two times on the road in order to win. Plenty of time, but Fangio their defensive coordinator runs a cover to when you play get smart overviews. You draw your back when you play the colts off and they ran a cover to back in the day you grow and some of those other experiences like this complete team. Yeah, there's a lot of studying, I think from what you know when we played against him in the past and also what he's done last couple of years and watched a lot of tape. And I feel like I seen their schema lot. I'm sure that has some wrinkles in there. Really. It's about as fallen our assignments, and you know, they can really do anything. You study a lot of film and. Now you can watch, you know, twenty games this stuff, and then go in there and they do some things different. You gotta just and I think that's a really important part of football. And I think part of the experience I've had is I know how to deal with some of those things, but it's still, you know, it's the challenges. It's a good scheme. It's good defense, and I think they're well coached. They always have a little lot of Rienzi and when they score a lot of points authencity it's hard to really match him, you know, in the same way, so good start have stay balanced, good complementary game, go out there and try to win on the road speaking this afternoon. He's seeing every scheme imaginable, but what does Khalil Mack bring to this defense? He poses a problem for everyone. This is ability to beat one on one, even two guys, even get someone shipping him at the same time. Khalil Mack superstar in this league and he makes plays and not only does it make the play a lot like bomb Miller. He's going after the football. He's trying to turn the ball over, treat a big top plate only himself, but other players, but he's the tone. The patriots are going to have to do a great job of Chippenham, making sure that the plays are quick the ball out of Tom Brady's hands early on, but Khalil Mack again, if he's fully healthy and he has an ankle problem. But if he's pulling healthy, he's going to be a problem this week, a game plan wise. There's going to be something for him in terms of gronkowski in front of him or white chip in them on the way out. But inside of that. But that guy that doesn't get a lot of attention as a Keam Hicks. He's a guy that stops the run..

"Press offers. He go to. If you have a question, go to that man and ask those questions and and I thought, oh, l. handed it? Well, I think he backed down from the question even when they brought up the owner and what the owner stated. He said, hey, listen, he has the right to his opinion, basically have a right to my own. I don't have a problem with what Odell said in a in. A lot of the picking met locked room is this. They have those problems. They had a lot of personnel problems. The problem was being this sitting down and doing an interview in just unleashing all this information outside of that locker room. That's the only problem I had the problem. I had a problem with him being to open about the issues he had with his organization with his quarterback, those things like that. But you can't take it back now. I mean to say, you regret it now, just you gotta deal with what the the aftermath of it. I'm sure you spoke to the head coach. You haven't talked to spoken with the owner yet, but you know, moving on trying to trying to best he can talk about and mentioned the Atlanta Falcons, but still it's not there yet. The media cycle in terms of all of this as long as it's continued to be revisited, he'll be asked about it. I thought he handled it well, you didn't add any logs to the fire or anything like that. Talk about the falcons worry about winning a game. It's those emotions on the field. Those things that I am concerned with down the road because it within a game with Odell Beckham, junior, it's so emotional. It means so much. He wants to win the game. You could tell by the way he is on the sideline. By the way y'all hard, he plays tries a break every single tackle and score a touchdown on every single play. He wants every pass thrown to them. The emotion sometimes get the better of vets where he asked to improve and grow as he said himself. So we can talk about the game. So this offense is gonna face a falcons team. They've beat the books, but they gave up five hundred twelve yards of offense. Some of their top defensive players are hurt. Do you think they match up other, they match up? Well, let's see the giants personnel wise at the skill position. There's. There's no other team in this league matches up with saquon Barkley Odell Beckham sterling shepherd. Now they're getting back ebony Ingram, possibly this week as well. The big tied in they have the weapons if they can get the confidence and gain this confidence. And I think this is a confidence booster going into the balanced team whose deep it's has been decimated by injuries. This is a game that they can get back on track offense. Now, do I think they win this game in the end? No, I don't think they went on the road, but I think it is a confidence builder for this office if they have all the weapons, if they have more weapons than anybody, why aren't they getting it done? What's not happening? It seems like it's one thing is successful, but the other is in saquon Barkley successful, but Oto Beckham junior is in OPEC. Junior has a good game, but then they're not good on third down, turn the ball, something like that. They haven't put it all together yet, but watching these giants play and then seeing saquon Barkley one way and then seeing Oto Beckham to the other way is it's comical to me at times because you. You have one that's outwardly. Emotional on the sidelines speaks his mind within saquon. Barkley has almost two hundred total yards and you ask him at his locker and he says, we didn't win. And then I'm sure that's the overall feeling that Mr. marijuana in that entire locker room, his young star and saquon Barkley he's got it figured out what does the same thing. I mean, we see across the league great skill players, bad office of line subpar quarterback plate. That's the problem. I mean, let's call it what it is individually. They had the personnel at the skill position. The receiver the quarterback was this with the offense of lime creating time for Eliah manning is it's been a huge issue because we all know alike not by time with his legs..

It's a question that he's asked to every single week and he says he feels that ally is the most prepared player he has ever played with. In fact, when he's in the huddle, he says, ten, take me home. Odell says, that's the biggest compliment. You can give a quarterback because that means you believe in them as her head coach, Pat Shurmur thoughts on the entire situation. He says that Josie to Anderson ESPN interview will forever be in the in the DNA of the giants organization. But for now they just got to move on and Susie. One last note at the bottom of Odell is locker. He had a book. It was titled humility. I asked him if he had taken any time to perhaps check it out. He said, I'm not a big reader, but I'm certainly taking a few or few moments Atta my day to check it out next chapter in prime time on Monday night. Thanks Diana guys, your thoughts on Beckham. No regrets. I mean, listen, he's a man in Shurmur in his.
