Soccer stadium stampede in El Salvador leaves 12 dead
"A stampede by soccer fans at a quarterfinals league match in El Salvador has left at least a dozen dead, and many more injured. The crush happened when fans pushed through one of the entrance gates at monumental stadium in kuska clan, one fan said one of the gates was closed too early, leaving many angry fans with tickets stranded outside. Those fans eventually knocked the gate down, play was suspended about 16 minutes into the match when fans in the stands waving frantically began getting the attention of those on the field. Dozens made it onto the field where they received medical treatments. Speaking at the scene, national civil police commissioner Mauricio ariza said there would be a criminal investigation into the incidents. Approximately 400 to 500 people gathered and in the eagerness to watch the game, sometimes wanted to open the gates, and when they opened it, a small forms, some of us call it a stampede. I'm Karen Chammas.

"It's the fact that it's such a gamble for this season and next season. Oh, there you go. It's arguably the worst contract in the league, John wall is probably the other one, right? It could go up there as one of the worst ever. 47 million next year, and it's his option, not the team. You guys. Is there a point guard in the league right now that you have to hide in late game situations because he can't hit free throws? That's a good question. Yeah. I mean, even like Lonzo is free throw percentage has come up this year. So I've never seen a point guard decline as much as he has in the shooting department. Like he at one point, he was shooting fritos above 80%. Yeah. How do you go from above 80% to 60 something? And you usually get better at creatures. You don't get worse. That's a confidence thing. That's a mental thing. And you look at playoffs and who's killed the Lakers over the years. You saw what Devin Booker was doing and guys who could really run off screens and we lost them guys them young Trevor ariza, right? Where Isa was that for us back in O 9? O 9, right? Like trail and screens, staying on the hip doing all the dirty work, then we come in, we get KCP. We have a Caruso. Who is that now? Austin Reeves. I mean, you know, you know it's bad when the Lakers wanted Trevor ariza to play the same role he did 13 years ago when they won a title. Exactly wrong..

"They needed more big wings that could do things, like rebound, like defend on the perimeter, do that sort of stuff. He was hoping Trevor ariza could do it. Stanley Johnson I think could do it at a higher level right now than ariza can, but then that begs the question when you go and you look at the game, ariza is playing 15 minutes, Stanley Johnson's playing 16 minutes, the gap between those two should be larger, which we should see a lot more Stanley Johnson admits than Trevor a recent minutes right now. I think that and I've been saying this all season, so I hate to keep repeating myself. But I think a lot of the Lakers issues are personnel based. And for the umpteenth time now, Trevor, and I've talked about this a lot, is that there is just not a lot of lateral or quickness along lateral foot speed or quickness along the perimeter for this Lakers team right now. There just isn't. And I don't want to sit here and bash Trevor ariza all night because that's still my guy. But at this point in his career, he is a step slower than most guys that he is trying to guard. And so that compromises your defense, stresses it out. You've got people scrambling and rotating all over the place. And before you know it, someone else has an open shot on the other team. I don't think it's a surprise that when Vogel goes to THT monk Reeves, Stanley Johnson and a 5th guy that the Lakers defense suddenly looks more competent is because there's not as many leaks. Guys aren't getting beat as easily. You've got guys that are able to recover a lot quicker. You're contesting shots a lot better. And then it's fueling your transition attack, which is where the Lakers are at their best. And that's another thing too. You know, a lot of these Lakers offense is based on early or semi transition opportunities. And they're just not getting a lot of those because they don't get as many stops. And that was what we said coming into the season. We looked at this roster put together. We said, this team can be really good in transition if they can get enough stops to get into transition. That was going to be the big question mark. And that was going to be kind of a tipping point and so far they haven't been able to, and that didn't allow them to transition opportunities. The pacers were scoring so much in the fourth that the Lakers weren't able to really get their offense running off of missed shots and turnovers..

"So many players who were out. The Lakers don't qualify for a hardship contract anymore because they have so many players who are back. Everybody is essentially back out of COVID protocols with the exception of, of course, David fizdale. So Stanley Johnson has to wait until tomorrow to sign a ten day contract. Now had the Lakers decided to sign him for the remainder of the season, they could have done that and had him play tonight. Obviously, that is not the path they're going down. What do you think about that decision? Obviously, they're going towards a ten day contract with Stanley Johnson. Where do you stand on that? I think it's just kind of delaying the inevitable in my mind. I mean, and you're going to have to correct me on this, but I believe that has tax ramifications too, right? Depending on when he signs. Right. So if they sign up to multiple ten day contracts, and then at a later date, sign them to arrest of the season deal, which they could absolutely do. It would be for a prorated amount for the veterans minimum. And I forget what year or age experience bracket that Stanley Johnson ends, but it would be pretty cheap for the Lakers to do it that way. Kind of similar to how they signed Andrew Andre Drummond last year after he got bought out. So I think I wouldn't sweat too much if I was a Lakers fan about Stanley Johnson being on the Lakers for the rest of the season. I think that's absolutely coming. It's a little odd to me that it would be a little odd for me to think about the team not signing up for the rest of the season after they started and for a handful of games. I know they were short on players, but I don't think you would do that for a guy you literally signed off the street. So yeah, there were moments where Trevor ariza would do something and he looked a little bit slow and I was like,.

"I think I had an honorable mention was the Avery Bradley Balkan, I believe Kelvin Johnson. I think in the first quarter, came over the weak side, rotated over Matt Johnson at the rim stuffed him completely. So now again, the inverse is also true. When you see big guys doing guard stuff, when you see going through big guy stuff, that's all Josh hart. Defending bigs in the post. Josh hart is an immovable guy. You know, this is a deep, deep cut, but David west talked about how he knew he needed to retire with Josh hart on the retired David west. That was epic. He was the catalyst. Yo from YouTube said Sekou is literally in our system and right under our noses, LOL, NBA experience in young legs. Don't think Vogel would do that, though. So secret Dubois, yes, in theory, 6 8. He fits the physical profile of what you'd be looking for on the wing, but if the Lakers aren't using him, it's for a reason. There's something going on that she's not quite clicking yet with him. I think there will be opportunities for him. And if he can play, he'll get in there because the Lakers do need a player his size that can do things, but something's just not quite there at this point for the Lakers not to turn to him right now. I think it's important for fans to realize that guys are available for reasons. Second boya obviously has draft capital. He was a first round pick, spent some time in Detroit and has shown flashes. But you know, once you get traded to a team, and then you get cut, and then you're picked up on a two way contract. You know, this is kind of the leagues way of saying that we think you have talent and we think there's some upside there, but you're not quite ready to play games just yet. If the if this was the Lakers of old, where they're not a championship contender or at least not trying to play for a championship and they're rebuilding team, then you obviously will see more psycho debuted type of minutes. But given where the team's at right now, I don't think you're going to see them unless they're getting blown out or they're blowing out teams. That's just kind of the reality of the season. So I don't expect to see a much garbage time minutes at this point. Exactly. Somebody said, let me see. There was a comment here. Oh, somebody asked for an update on Trevor ariza and another update on Kendrick nunn. So let's finish up with that. So ariza was ruled out for about 8 weeks. The Lakers it was released that he would be reevaluated in about 8 weeks. And that was roughly 5 and a half weeks ago..

So that's the that's the way you can you know it's a way it's a where what we're developing is similar to the development of for lasers. In the early days of laser development you know you star from amplified spontaneous emission. And then you build the you know some Either you build some seed to to amplify the process all you build a mural cavity system to amplify the process so so over laser has a virus configuration such as amplified spontaneous emission. Cd laser laser oscillator. And in this case we're also wear saying now. We know how to build the x ray laser. Let's think about how we can build. X-ray regenerative amplifier furnish on laser an x ray for your laser also laser so think this is a natural step of question so in conclusion.

"You know, when Here's the other thing, when I'm looking at this Lakers roster, right? And I get a lot of the comments, and I've even seen him here tonight. People are saying you guys are too focused on threats. It's not threes, it's not so much. The threes, it's the threat. Like I'm not the person saying I want the Lakers shoot Xmas every single game. I don't think you have to be an incredible three point shooting team in order to win to this NBA. I've got so many people right now. I've seen it all over social media running around saying, all of the Milwaukee Bucks, just wanted them to shoot threes, the Lakers a couple of years ago. They just they wanted, they didn't shoot threes that. Well, you've got to terrible three-point shooting. Team to just one. Why do you care about three point shooting? It's not that you have to be able to get off points from 3 or shoot a high-volume from Three's. You have to be able to threaten from 3. Once you can have is guys out there where teams don't have to guard them, the Milwaukee Bucks, do they shoot a great percentage? No choice. But they shall well enough. The teams would have to defend them. That's what matters. That's where you're spacing. Comes into play. Look at what the sons did the Lakers. They knew, they couldn't hit threes. So how many times did we see five Sons? In the paint and the Lakers trying to get something going to the rim, and it's all clogged up because they didn't have anybody. That was a threat to shoot or even the guys who were threats to shoot were not shooting. Well, that's what these three point talk about Ron, Matt myself. We're not saying the Lakers have to shoot a high volume of Threes. We're saying you have to have guys who will threaten from 3? Because that opens up your insides a game. These things are all connected. I'm not, the kind of guy who says, you need to shoot a ton of Threes to win in the modern NBA know you don't but you have to be able to threaten E, hundred percent. Think you summarized in pretty good, the Lakers have no space to operate in the playoffs, lo and behold. They've signed a couple, guys. I can hit threes. So, you know, in theory, the spacing will be better off and LeBron Russell Westbrook. Etc will have more room to get to the pain and finish at The Rim or kick out to Shooters at. They're both really good out by the way. So, yeah, that's just kind of where it is. The Lakers shop close to 20253 s a game, which often it's about league-average. Even blow it off, top my head and they and they swore efficiently, that's all that really matters. We're not saying, hey shoot fifty-three is a game, it's just more like, hey, just give me guys that defenses. Have to respect a little bit. Yep, that's it. And I think that's even more important when you've got Russell Westbrook, who is at his best when he's getting to the rim. It's easier for him to give gets the rib when the floor is spaced. That's why the Houston Rockets said, okay, no more centers because they needed the Force Base, for Russell Westbrook to be able to get to the rim. Yeah, this is basically like the de facto Center and those lineups. Definitely kind of think about it ever. He averaged eleven and half rebounds per game this past season. I don't I feel like we're not talking enough about how ridiculous that choice. But yeah, a point guard averaged eleven and half rebounds per game over a whole NBA season. That's impressive. That's impressive. It's just so, yeah..

"One of the things that I want to bring up because I wanted to talk about the players that they've targeted so far, the word came out about Kent Bazemore, then he actually turned down a longer-term deal from the Golden State Warriors for more money in order to take one year from the Lakers and kind of baton himself that he would have a bigger role. What are your thoughts on that? And don't forget, Kent Bazemore back in the day, when he was a Laker wage was not happy with the Lakers that they didn't match an offer that he got. He wound up going to I believe it was the Atlanta Hawks and he held a million. Yeah he held some resentment to the Lakers and I felt at the time I remember being upset that they should have, they should have kept him but now Kent Bazemore comes back to the Lakers after turning down money elsewhere. Does that does that alter at all your perspective on on the camper signing or how does that make you feel? I mean, the the reason, well, the resentment that can Bazemore held towards the Lakers, I think that's obvious obviously, cuz he signed it's dissipated. But that was a completely different managerial group was going to say it's a whole different everything. So like this is a brand new thing for him. I'm okay. Like when I when it says, when they say bigger role, I'm anticipating that unless the Lakers go out and make a deal for healed, I anticipate, he starts. Yeah, right now, the starting lineup is probably looking like, Russell Westbrook, Kent Bazemore off or on Anthony Davis. Mark assaults kind of where it's leading right now if I had to guess and I'm okay with that as long as like I think there are probably better players out there than Kent Bazemore that they could still bring. In fact, I'm okay with that being a situation. He's a he's a solid Wing Defender. He's coming off a career behind the three-point line. All right with it. Yeah, I could talk myself into it. He, he started 18 games for the Warriors. Last season played 67 total. I believe he only played 20 minutes, but I think on this particular Lakers game, I don't think I'm going to be defending. You don't think, depending on Trevor, Ariza, defendant, or guards and wings for most of the game. I think most definitely go to Kent Bazemore actually especially just looking at the roster, how it's going to directed right now. So I think when you say big a role I think he's going to be in there for defensive purposes at least and so any guy that can shoot an open 3 is going to have minutes next LeBron obviously and so I think maybe that's where you know bigger role comes into play. I wouldn't be surprised to see him play. Close to twenty five, twenty eight minutes a night or so. Yeah, I don't know if that's idea we'll see but the other point I wanted to make here, you know, I don't know if they can base more winds up being the starter but when we look at the guys who signed right now, I know something like a fans are going. Well, this is an underwhelming, you're signing. All these veteran guys, they're all over 30 right? Bazemore in the reason and white and Wayne Ellington. But these are guys who they knew like, the veteran minimum is probably what they're getting whether they sign today, whether they sign for days from now, whether they signed two weeks from now, their best case scenario is probably the better. Minimum. That's that's just that's the tier of player. They are right now. Kent Bazemore. Now obviously he's, you know, he's hoping for a bigger payday next next year, right? But but the veteran minimum is probably what these guys were looking at. The guys were the Lakers are where we're going to see deals, where we say, wow, that was a bargain with those are the guys where the.

"Saudi fighter, 25, with the Super Chat from YouTube said, is it weird that we heard all the news? Like Carmelo Anthony is basically a Laker yet? No announcement. Also, Dennis is punching the air right now dead. Second part first, yes, it's looking more and more likely, the dentist router will be regretting turning down that for years. 84 million contract offer from the Lakers and perhaps, it's the Lakers will be a little bit off of that. He did turn that down, but it's like a little mini Nerlens Noel situation. But what do you guys think? Carmelo Anthony. This is not the only person who have asked about that. I've had a few people asking about Carmelo and do you still see a page for him on this team? Now that Trevor Ariza is is in town. I actually do, and there's a reason. Why is because I think that the Lakers are pretty sure that Carmella will come. If they call, but I think at this point, the guys that we've seen so far, I think they probably had more bidders. So, the Lakers needed to prioritize them first and that's why the news came out about their agreements. But as far as Melo goes, I think there's a radio wink wink agreement that once they've gone through their flurry of moves and the initial wave free agency. Then they'll then they'll go ahead and sign Carmelo so long. I actually think that you know she's there if they want him and I think he's just kind of waiting on them to finish kind of like how we saw last offseason with Jared Dudley ride, where we knew he was coming back. But he was one of the last ones to get announced was already a done deal of how I feel about mellow to. Yeah, I agree. I think that could be it could be the case. It did seem like not a certainty but like a 95%. He felt kind of like Dwight word White House. We felt pretty confident he was coming back and lo and behold he is he's coming back. So I feel like Carmelo, Anthony could still get a spot on this team but again, he he is no spring chicken either..

"Now what do you think? What do you think about this whole situation? I mean this is this is a essentially though on the positive side, this is playing out the way the Lakers would want to play out in terms of Dennis Shooters. So that wherever you want to go, the teams that are left are probably in and nothing's for sure, but probably going to have to negotiate with the Lakers on a sign-and-trade if they want shooter. Yeah, as far as shooter goes, I honestly think that at this point shooters, best bet if he wants to make anything close to what he was asking for originally, it's going to come via sign-and-trade and it looks like Washington, Washington. Wizards might be the most landing, likely landing spot Jim in where all the money's gone just today, so I can definitely see that. And this is what I alluded to earlier the top of the show, where my my conspiracy theory really is that they let Alex walked because of the luxury-tax but because they do a deal for buddy hield that might improve Dentistry towards Washington. You know that's a really popular Theory right now amongst Lakers fans and the media so I'm still holding out hope for that. But as far as the other phrases go like DeMar DeRozan, I really think that I, you know, I still personally can't stand thinking that big of a pay cut where he's going to take the, the taxpayer mid-level exception. I do think that the Spurs might try to work a sign-and-trade somewhere, where that is I have no idea but at the same time I think it's likely. I really doubt that he comes to the Lakers or any other team with that taxpayer mid-level and he goes there so it's wild. I I was talking about it earlier but there are a couple of free agents that are still out there that haven't been signing off. I would have gone immediately. Yeah, there's still options out there on the market that's just it. This is just starting, this isn't the Lakers we see. Oh my gosh, they added four more players. Yeah. They still have six more spots to fill. They only had five guys on contract and we don't even know what's going to happen with Alfonzo mckinnie, right? Cruise is not coming back. Okay, so what happens now? Talen horton-tucker, he's a restricted free agent. You got to figure out what happens there. There's a number of other players that are out there on the market. The labor will have a lot of work to do so by no means is this done. And by the way, I also want to throw this out there. The guys we've seen so far. Most likely, these are all veteran-minimum signings, okay? Most likely they're all for the betterment of the Lakers the big bullet. They've gotten the chamber is the taxpayer mid-level which is just under six million. I don't believe they've spent that yet, so there's still more coming there, still something else, right? But I am getting a lot of questions right now in our chat. People asking what about the age, right? So far, every player they've signed talking about a reason Dwight Wayne Ellington can't log. More. They're all over. Thirty, Dwight Howard's. What thirty six races 36 way no intent. I believe I want to say it's 33 is 30 to 4:30 to 4 for baseball game and then Russ is going to be thirty-three in a few months LeBron is 36 going on 37? Anthony Davis at what 28 is sitting there looking around, feeling like the kid on the team at this point, 50 HD, she comes back..

We're hoping that something else might happen while we're live right here and we can break it down as it goes down tonight.

We're talking about, you know, Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington Kent, Bazemore all, former Lakers all now going to be current Lakers.

So today is a rollercoaster Trevor and Ron today started off so strong and then the Alex Caruso news drops and my heart sunk just like every other fan of the Lakers today, off mystically speaking, or maybe this is me just hoping, but part of me wants to think that the Lakers just didn't want to pay the luxury tax bill because they've got another move down in the work somewhere. So that gave me hope in. But either way you slice it, it's just not a good. It's just not a good look to like build out. So when you really didn't have a reason to let him walk for nothing, Ron, what did you think? I know you had some thoughts on Alex Caruso. I know there was going to be a big luxury tax payment for the Lakers if they hung on to Alex Caruso at the price, like a difference of it was something like forty million dollars if they hung on to him. But I know you were still not thrilled, but the decision especially since it came out, same, except the athletic mentioning that the Lakers didn't even bother to count her. The Chicago Bulls offered Alex, which I felt was a pretty fair offer. Yeah, I mean, look for years..
Most Intriguing Trade Deadline Teams with Bobby Marks
"To the low post podcast on a friday morning where we are six days away from the trade deadline but some trades of already happened. People are acting early. Miami acquired trevor ariza and the bucks made a very interesting move to acquire. Pj tucker but there's much left to do even on boring trade deadline's are never actually boring. Lots of stuff happens to help. Us preview are insider are cap expert former longtime nets executive. The one and only bobby marks how are you. I'm good zach. How're you. And i already had my usually about a week out from the trade. I start having nightmares in the middle of the night. And i did my first nightmare last night. That woke me up about four o'clock that A fictitional trade of paul george in kyle lowry to the nets for curry irving and i woke up thinking like how in the heck is at work cap wise but the person in my dream that i talked to said. Hey don't worry about it. Works and i was like check my phone right off. The bat at four thirty in that did not happen. That is that is really sad. I had a dream last night. That four of my friends in their families were quarantining at a former. I hop that still had all the i hop like syrup and technology to be a functioning and they were having lots of pancakes in great meals and i wanted to go visit them. This is what. I was dreaming about six days before the train then. I woke up very hungry. Bunny dream will probably more likely to happen than cholera. Paul george and brooklyn possibly. What did it before we start. What did you think of the bucks acquiring j. tucker in a deal of of minor draft assets. I would say yeah. I mean it was creative. I thought that you know the milwaukee because it hard cap and based on the picks going in that drew holiday trade really had limited options to go out and do it but they go under the milwaukee goes under the Luxury tax gives them flexibility on a hard cap houston from their front office with the draft. Picks i don't think it would have been able to do it if They didn't have that two thousand twenty second from the hardened trade. That was the box. Essentially that they got from jarrett for From cleveland jared allen. But i had never really seen a team basically swapping a first for a second and then tr trade back that two thousand twenty second and you move back a year in the draft so it was creative from from both sides. And you'll see what brand. Pj tucker we get in milwaukee because he has not been. He hasn't been great this year at all and is it just the level of interest of a houston team that has taken on major water. And do we get to see the pj tucker from the previous years. But it gives milwaukee a lot of different options as far as lineups that they can. They can roll out there with him.

They played the Zone pretty well and they did a lot of things down the stretch so that it's not like it's not like they're going out. Yep. 2019 there was a little bit of entire brochure said that they weren't doing the game plan. They were just doing their own thing out there. I don't think that's the case this year but on certain nights are they just like yeah, whatever and they tuned it out and long. They're not as committed. I think that's more of a situation we have here than not tuned in every night. It's not like three weeks ago. They said screwed radam him and every single night since they've been out on him. I think it's more often flow thing like like Jimmy said earlier in this is something I always look out for sometimes it's what people don't say, that's a bigger issue than what they do say and you know, you you have not heard the phone know those ringing endorsements in the inbred We Trust sort of stuff like Brett Brad's the best coach in the league and he's going to right the ship and we have total Faith like you don't hear it, which I mean they don't think it but when you do hear it, it reinforces it so again, the silence sometimes speaks volumes, you know. You know and so that you you're not hearing tons of that there but I don't know. It's it's a tough conversation to have I always have a different type of having it cuz you don't know deep down. It's like in the locker room. What's the real issue? There could just be problems with select players in there that they can't get to work and do the thing that they want to do and he's Brad's banging his head against the and Jake to Jason or trying to do everything make n behind the scenes and it's just not working. So it's just not it's it's a hard one to judge. That's it really is so I I don't know but we're we're past an hour here we get into on Friday..

"You just go to how many games do they play in this year? 72. That's what like thirty thirty six and thirty years. Accessory that's where they're going to finish Sometimes. The best plan is to sometimes it's just look no no general manager is going to come out and tell fans who you know, I mean you want to pay you want in a normal world. You want to pay to go see games and you want to support you and you want to care you're not going to tell them we gave up on this season months ago, but the reality is they might have given up on this season months ago and then happens down there. This absolutely is a thing in sports. They assess the roster and they say there's no friggin way. We're doing anything to improve this team or riding out the storm and whatever happens happens and we're going to reset and that that's part of life that's part of sports, but they don't tell you that one owner is just telling Danny see I told you teach trash man told you and you imagine if a few more nights we have to do the up and down where semi hits six three one night and the whole team fixed and then the next night adjust. This is why I don't know. Apology cams. Okay, because one day later, I'm going to want it back. Okay this season if they if they just keep writing this way. It's going to be a long to the finish this wave because we know what's going to happen. They're going to go 36 + 36 and lose and round one. That's what's going to happen. We can predict it now. You'll navigate this the Heat have a reason definitely be better better avoid that kind of forget to read to do whatever they can to avoid that matchup. So beyond the reserve the 9 a.m. In the last ten and healthy, I mean post they've been great. Yeah, that's what it is. You know, we came back think they got good again and Tatum still talking about covid-19. And that's that's another factor in this season. It's almost like the Patriots. I can you put it all on cam getting covid-19. correct and over 7 years before this of coaching outstanding and this year just because it got wacky injury strike kovich covid hits. They have an awful schedule. You're going to fire a coach over that so now if they miss the playoffs will see them. All right. Tell him so you got cans but that's no I agree or not doing it home and my fibers fired dark. I thought that was a bad move. That was like verbatim when he said literally that was his speech. Oh, yeah, that would put that from to like a lot of people have been talking about that long. But you know what, you know, you know what part of Boby it's dark lost that locker room or if they tuned him out. Nobody was really saying how a dog can't. Can't go to any more. He just couldn't coach those guys anymore for whatever reason and he's doing a hell of a hell of a job in Philly. So again, I mean, you might not have agreed with it and maybe it felt unfair maybe doc was pissed about it, but I I'm pretty sure he's okay with how it turned out and I'm pretty sure maybe the Clippers probably are too sure something here's an underrated aspect of coaching. Okay, your coach is the leader. Okay, you're there and you're used to things going a certain way and then one day they're not going that way and you look around for answers and when the guy doesn't have the answers, even if it's not his fault and even if there's nothing humanly possible, he could conjure answers and you keep going out there and then you walk off of your head hanging low after losing the Cleveland Cavaliers..

"I think we're I think we're giving them too much rope and Tristan Thompson, okay. You have these are some you have professional basketball players on this team. It's not the best cast they've ever had. But give me a break. These are there it's not like it's like Jason Jalen and five Grant Williams. That's not a thing with there's there. There's enough Talent on this roster to be way better than twenty and twenty and I think it's a total cop-out when we say that they all I feel so bad for what the Jays have been given. They absolutely have enough on. I don't think that in they are so this is interesting to me because they have three centers and you were right John you said a very early age this season that they shouldn't have had three centers on this team and that mid-level shouldn't have gone to another Center because they're missing a wing there wasn't a great Wing out there. We saw Jay Craddock got more money than the mid-level. I believe and took Tori Craig and guys like that. They weren't great wings out there, but they need a guy at that 4 spot whether they're going to go double big or whether they're going to keep spreading to know weighing heavy and I think they can succeed either birth. The right Personnel is there so that's why you maybe have to start thinking about LaMarcus Aldridge and I know they're interested in them. I don't think I said thrilled about it. But if you could if you could replace the grants minutes send me his minutes with LaMarcus Aldridge. It'd be awkward. I think it's still have some of the double big issues there. But that's a real deal for you can say Sephora little bit. I think it's just been kind of soaking a lot along with a god. He's in a similar way. I can read nothing. Nobody money. It's funny. Yeah, he's not coming here. I think I think the three teams already come here. Well, they, both are on the three teams interested in and I think it was Portland Boston and one other team so the interest isn't going to be strong for him because he hasn't looked great at all of this year. So that's the kind of guy like Greg Monroe a few years that you maybe take a fire on washing. That's getting that was so depressing the next.

"I don't care if he ends up a -30 G in this his minutes were just my point that once he starts playing higher leverage minutes against better players with that starting unit in particular is what we saw against Utah watch off my phone but it's not going to be the most overwhelming impact anymore and what you start to lose a little bit with him since they've been mixing and matching the benches him and Pritchard had a pretty good thing going on with that box doing it against opposing ones and Emmett smart. Haven't completely been able to replicate in the Utah game and then tonight Pritchards sharing minutes with t go a little bit so they don't have consistent job. Sign ups and that I think hurts everybody involved. It's not a necessity, but I never think it's a good thing. I They commit to anything on any given night person else messing guys are unreliable. It's another reason why I think we want to see Rob and I think why a lot of people want to see Rob is when he's out there. I mean and this is what one of the questions I had about him going into the season was is he checked in is he fully invested and is he is he going all out this season? I feel like he has been I mean, I'm seeing a lot of wage. I'm seeing a lot out of him, you know not this is a really good week for him. But mentally and like honestly that I think that's the issue a lot of fans have with this Celtics team is there's not enough of that. There's not a guys that look full enough guys who look fully engaged for Forty-Eight minutes or you know for the time that they're out there. That's that's my my takeaway for one of the reasons why people want Rob out there in a game or Kemba Walker isn't out there to me. Kemba Walker is the leader of this team. He sets the tone. He's got the positive energy. You see the effort on both ends and when he's dead, Out there. I think there's a noticeable difference in in energy on both ends in in like the idea of the feeling that these guys really want it, you know, and I think that's what really wage. There's a lot of fans is watching them just you know Sleepwalk on defense and just Chuck shots on office and you know, then take it out but the hell is sodium funny. I know I jog laughing though. It's not bad not know that that's a good we know some comments. Um, yeah, but that's a good point Jimmy. No, it is not seriously, but I think on right screw you guys me don't be afraid I'm with you buddy hear me up. The difference is that with Tempest out there? You're Puttin teams defenses on their heels. Like that's the difference. I mean, well, he's killing or not more lately. He's been killing him more times than he was before when he first, you know came back from injury, but when he's attacking the rim when he's pulling up with that three-point it just dead. It's a defense in a space where they're not comfortable and I think a lot of times that's when Jayson Tatum weather Jayson Tatum were dealing Brown, you know, they get obviously they get better looks that way and transition and and the the offense flows better one comes out know I get that I just to me it's it's sometimes it's the effort. It's like the sulking and it's just the not playing defense like think I think it's a little contagious and Kemba does leave the team and smiled. I even lead the league and smiles on top of it all but the smiles that depends now, Kemp has been so limited all year, whether it's these back packs, even the fact that he can't run thirty-nine forty minutes with brown and Tatum on nights like this..

"You're just seeing more you're seeing him do more and more things and he's threatening threatening. He's not there yet. He's threatening to suck. Posting guys up. You see I'm kind of looking for a little bit. He's trying to catch he's thinking about going to the basket a little bit and just going up and under up and over with a little baby hook or something if he gets there almost there any of that in his repertoire and and absolutely just quick trigger on a 12-foot Baseline jumper if he gets it out there that's going to be really interesting to see you know, those are the next steps of offensive Evolution where he's not just waiting for loves and rebounds and stuff the first Rob. John got goals for for Robert already. He's saying goes you might be tradable now, I thought wow for boots event. They make it into an nft and it goes for ten million dollars the first Rob post up. So I saw that against the Rockets he was catching in the post turning it was kind of like a Dwight Howard Post move, but it worked and he was able to dunk on a few guys with possession plays and the pose and that's something he had I had never seen from him before so I see that as well John wage. Passing is through the roof is passing is frankly the most impressive thing about him. You wouldn't expect a guy who plays his role to be able to dish in the short roll daring pass her to page really tight windows. I mean, he's a very clever guy nobody the way he sees it he tries to squeeze it in he even had one late in the one in the second half the resulted in a kick. But again, he likes see that little Seymour a little lane and he's like, I got it there. I mean, you know, I'm not saying Walton yet, but I mean like that. He's a really really good passer. The thing is they lost his minutes by Thirteen. So this is all I'm pushing back on. It's all I've ever pushed back on with you guys with him because I love him. He's there's nothing to hate about this guy. He is a joy of watch is a substantial Prospect. He was the steel of that draft probably a 27 but I just never believed that if you push him the 30 minutes his team suddenly becomes like the to bring it in the East and it's the only thing wrong here and that it's the most obvious move that they can make to bother you. Just want to see the progress like like John wants to see him check those boxes. Have you the starters dead play with the run with the ones? Okay, what happened yesterday, you know when you didn't win some of the RAB minutes cuz it's because the new table bench absolutely destroyed the Celtics bench, you know, so she was a victim of that plus minus is Ash, it's Dad because it doesn't it lacks context. It's a team stat as much as it is an individual step. Sometimes you can point to a guy and be like Oh, but more often than not it has to do with them. Unit that you're playing with and what's happening at that point in time. So it is, you know, look, sometimes we'll point to it and say, oh he was plus this and you know in our favorite brother know it looks better when you provide context. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's it's it's it you need context with that stat. There's no question that the RAB William rubs impact in his minutes is substantial..

"Want to go here but could those teams overtake the Celtics? Yes, like, okay. Do we have boosted thinking about the Celtics? Maybe not making the playoffs? Is that a possibility here? I think that's conversation will have left the deadline after the trade deadline. Definitely a possibility though. I mean think about it. They're they're one injury away from being very legit injury injury away from for that happening. You don't like what did I find? What conversation that probably what happened? And you know, what's the difference between making the playoffs and losing in that play and run another errand a test? Yeah. Yeah, another 14 pick and another shot at Annie Smith type player right now. The Celtics would be picking 16 so they can start sinking below job. Yeah, everyone pays very close attention to the March Madness starting tomorrow because I only watch from the Celtics. Have a good pick her up. Here we go better pick than you think. I I while I was gone. I did check in and rub Williams Lake has not fallen off despite the the minutes that he played tonight. I was dead was the injury tonight shocking. I don't know. What did it look like for you with the weird. It was a hip right? Bobby dad was fine putting them in it. Looks like a little hyper extension situation, but it seems fine. Yeah, you got back into play the fine. Just can we just appreciate that stat line again real quick 13 points 14 rebounds three years. It was four blocks. Yeah. It's actually twenty seven minutes. That's a second most he's ever played most most of the season. Are you guys happy yet? Cuz this this is it right here. This is wage. It's not a matter of happiness at this point Bobby. I was happier. Yeah, I was on that would not be happy with this over 30 minutes. Like right. What what more can I mean he's he's literally is I mean what more can he do that sequence there when he was like freaking Ed Reed playing free safety when he was trapping and then releasing back into the back towards the basket and picking off passes and blocking shots. Who what who have you ever seen do that before who does them like that was unbelievable that stretch unreal Belichick would be like, oh my God, he was unbelievable. Just the awareness to be able to jump out to trap to get back in the play. I mean that was unbelievable there just everything blocked shots the assists again another I mean it down the stretch too. I mean he had his hands at The Rim. I think we all get a picture in, New Jersey. Ruin all pitch in and get Gianni a timelord jersey put timer on.
The Celtics's Defense Stunned by Lowly the Cavaliers
"Think quite a few of their problems stem from that slow start. So Marcus Smart had to end up taking most of the response offensive responsibilities throughout this one and you know, we often see how that goes. It got them back into it a little bit late, but it wasn't a recipe for success and I thought once you get behind on the offensive end you lose some of that defensive intensity. So both their issues on both sides before we tend to each other specifically for smart who I thought was so bad defensively in this one getting torched by those guards who can be great on some nights. I think those guys have potential sexton in Garland, but the same thing. Massive for you there that I don't see a little word or you know high-level guards for either of those guys their quality guards. They're inefficient. They shoot in the low 40s. They're 30% 3-point shooters that sometimes they can go off from that aspect, but the defense wasn't good enough tonight and a large part of it was because They were Jack and so many shots. They weren't moving offensively. They're missing a ton of shots. So they've given feed out for Cleveland again on transition and as they've done all season they gave up points in the paint a flash in the pan looked

FDA panel approves Covid vaccine in US
"Good evening we start with that breaking news from an independent. Fda advisory panel of experts late today giving its endorsement for emergency. Use a pfizer as covid vaccine here in the united states their recommendation. Now in the hands of the fda itself which could give its go-ahead any day now that would allow the start of an ambitious mass vaccination effort just as the country reels from loss of over three thousand people in a single day from the virus. Let's begin tonight with tom castillo. The virtual vote came after eight hours so back and forth on efficacy and safety and outside advisory panel of experts charged with giving the fda unbiased and unfiltered analysis of pfizer's covid vaccine the american public demand and deserve comprehensive and independent review of the data. Now the fda will decide whether to follow the uk and canada. In green-lighting the vaccine for emergency use. That decision could come within days or even hours. Fda commissioner hahn on we've shrunk in a process that normally takes months into one. That's taken weeks. And i have a one hundred percents confidence in them. And i believe the american people should as well wants. The fda approves operation warp speed will move into high gear thousands of ups and fedex trucks and planes mobilized nationwide the faa giving priority clearance to air cargo shipments. In the first week visor plans to ship. Roughly two point nine million doses each state's allocation based on his population with bigger states. Getting the most california receiving three hundred twenty seven. Thousand initial doses. Medium-size states like maryland. Minnesota about fifty thousand small estates and wyoming about five thousand initially across the country.

Tom some members of this advisory committee did raise issues some concern about those people on the uk who had some sort of an allergic reaction concern about that and some members want more research into the effect on sixteen and seventeen year olds also pregnant women that want to see how they fare with the vaccine.

This is very cutting edge to be able to be one of those first people that potentially could get. That vaccine is is something extraordinary extraordinary because it feels like something out of the movies we expected vaccine rates and rollouts of vaccines and studies to take food or five years and the best of situations. This is six to nine months. This is like star trek. This is amazingly fast. Some healthcare workers have told us they feel some guilt taking vaccine i but they know they need it to better care for their patients. The medical community hoping to show anyone skeptical. The vaccine that it's safe is this the beginning of the end of the pandemic. I sure would like to hope so. Let's go ahead and take a deep breath for me. For dr eliza erskine the hardest part of treating cove is not always those infected. It's their families. I had one patient. I took care of icu that her son came to visit every day.

Breathe in Peace
"How're you doing? I'm Mary Medically and I. Welcome you back to our series. We're exploring this week. which is all about stress breakthroughs? This has to do with those moments in your life especially these days. When, you feel put on this side. With the kind of stress, you may be experiencing. I don't know about you, but since the Corona Virus I've noticed that people just aren't quite themselves. In fact. I've noticed that people really lash out quite a bit these days. We see that with protests, but we also see it in interpersonal relationships as well. A couple of weeks ago, someone had invited me to be interviewed on their podcast. So I agreed and on the day of the podcast. I was there waiting for the link so that we could. Join together so I could be interviewed. And I never received the link. And it was six minutes after. The time we were supposed to be meeting. I received a text message. Saying. How this person had been waiting for me, it had been only six minutes, and that I could consider the interview canceled. This was the strangest message because I've been interviewed many times, and usually if somebody is laid especially less than ten minutes late. And I wasn't late. I was there on time waiting for the link to be sent to me. Usually people will check in I to say hey, is everything okay? We have a meeting at time and I've been waiting. And do you need a new lean or else? You'll receive a phone call from the person checking in with you because technology doesn't always work, and also people are just very distracted now so I think it's important to. Each, other, a little slack. And then I had been invited to a nother interview, and this was another person I didn't know. So I showed up at the time, we were to have the interview. and. That person didn't show up, so I sent a message. I didn't have the person's phone number, but I sent an email. Checking in to see if they were okay or if they needed any of my other information to reach me and I didn't hear anything. So later that evening. I received a message. Telling me that they are no longer interviewing people remotely. They're only going to do live in person interviews after the corona virus. There is really no apology. It was just to inform me that. They were no longer doing interviews so since they've reached out to me, I thought. It would have been nice if they had. Let me know that they had cancelled interview. But. I just let them know that no worries, it was fine. But I really noticed how off. People are at least in my line of work. I'm not sure how things are going your way. There are lots of. Other ways that life is a little different now not only are people more on edge. But services aren't as great because. Things are missing or things are delayed. It just takes longer to get things done and to go places. It takes some strategy to think about. What you're going to do, and how you can do it safely and how you might anticipate. Your exposure to the virus I last week went to two different locations to get blood work done. By when I went to each location. The attendance were not wearing masks. Most of the people waiting in a crowded small waiting area. We're not wearing masks. I live in Florida and I. Do feel it's necessary to social distance. And wear masks especially in crowds, or when I go in public buildings where there will be a lot of people. So. This is very controversial where I live and in many places in the US. So there's that also it's like people are making political statements as to whether or not. They're wearing a mask. And some people might just be vulnerable or they might have been exposed. In so they want to keep other people say. So there's a lot of confusion and frustration because. At least in the state where I live, we're not really receiving a lot of good guidance and instruction. On how best to keep safe? But it's one thing to know how to keep safe from what we hear from experts, but it's quite another thing when there's really no enforcement. Of Safety Measures. Where I live in Florida, currently, we are one of the hot spots in the country. Ariza reading where just yesterday alone, there were five thousand new cases in Florida where I live. These times we're living in. Require, patience. And Tolerance?
Ely Parker | Part 2 | The Civil War
"Hello and welcome to Iroquois history and legends. I'm Caleb. I am Andrew we are continuing with our series on the lustrous Mr L. E. S. Parker last episode we talked about his early life is education his diplomacy with the United States and his job as a civil engineer, and where he finds himself, now is in between jobs, and at the brink of the civil war in the United States breaking out, and I'm GonNa sum this up. Up What had happened was we saw all these native American peoples being removed from their land and forced to move west across the Mississippi and into the Oklahoma territory with all these native peoples depopulated from the eastern United States that left all kinds of area that opened up for agriculture and farming, and this led to more tension between the northern and southern states, because you had people joining to rush into the southern and western states. And, they wanted to make sure that slavery was instituted these places because then they could keep their balance of power higher in the US Congress were they could get more senators or members of the House of Representatives to make policies that would guarantee the rights of the southern territories and states, so that's where we find ourselves in and states are rushing around to be declared slave or free, and then a Abraham Lincoln gets elected president, and all heck breaks loose now you may think hey, Parker. He became a captain in the New York. State militia right so he's probably getting ready for war to. But no, he wasn't called upon for his services in engineering in the military or anything so after he finished his contracts in. Illinois he moved back to the tunnel, Wanda reservation and began farming. He quickly became very bored Andrew farming was not the life for a man like him. Many of the Seneca were gearing up for war, looking to join the United States Army Parker went and spoke to his father. Who as you recall from last episode was a veteran from the war of eighteen twelve, and he received his blessing to take up the war, Pat, but Parker. He wasn't. GonNa go as grunt. He wanted to go as a commission soldier. You'd already been. been a captain in the New York militia, so he asked the governor of New York for a commission like a real commission is apparently the militia commissions didn't really count the governor of New York declined so then what did he do when things fail in New York do what everybody else does. Go to a different state. I'm just kidding, but he did. bypass New York state and try to go directly to the federal government. You know. He had some friends in high places in Washington at this point, so he said Hey. Captain in the New York State militia civil engineer. How about a commission? declined. He got a letter from the Secretary of war Edwin Stanton. Quote. Parker this is a quarrel between white men, in which you Indians are not concerned, unquote. Another federal official that he wrote to told him quote. Unquote and I'm sure. They said it just as condescendingly. Some people may have made departure that his lack of US citizenship. Maybe what's holding him back from getting this commission? Because this is the same time that we see, he actually applied for citizenship. Oh, how'd that work out for him? Mile had a lot like everything else to the government. He was turned it down again. So from eighteen, sixty, one to eighteen, sixty two, he worked on his farm, and he also worked for the Indians on the reservation. He penned one letter to an old militia General John Martindale where he jokes about being a bad farmer and eating a wife, he asked the general quote. If, he knew any strong, healthy, double breasted woman that would want to be a farmer's wife. Can you say that again? That strong. HOW DOUBLE BREASTED WOMAN! So I thought you said? Did you think double breasted? Okay then we're just. This is a family home to show after all so. We'll just leave it at that. I don't know it seems like pretty good things to look for in a woman. Was His. With a lot of single I'm. You were saying. Parker has been farming for about two years now any starting to think that he's never gonNA. Get his chance. But he did still have a few friends looking out for me and you. And they were a couple of friends that were becoming pretty influential in the war, and Parker didn't even think the contact them. One of them was the jeweler in Gallina, and the other was the grocer. They are now being known as General John. Smith and General Ulysses S grant. They actually said to themselves. You know who we could use right now is parker. Parker was joined to the General Staff with the rank of captain in May twenty, fifth, eighteen, sixty three, but you'll never guess Andrew. He found another complication and this one is coming from a different. Place than you would think. If you remember Parker was made a what. Saito in say tim was a life appointment. Holding has shown checks and balances aspect of the government. Say Chimps were the political leaders. And they could not go to war right? You would have a war chief appointed, and you would have your say. And you'll have your clan. Mothers Each end so now he wants to go to war, but he's a saint shown so Ariza. Wait a minute. Can you legally legally from the? WHO NEEDS schone standpoint? Can you legally go to war? So a meeting was held, and they decided that sense he would be a captain fighting in the war of the whites. You would not be violating the checks and balances protocol.
The Show Must Go On: Wrestlemania Is Still Happening
"In the WWE. That is we say what our jobs are. Every day is to put smiles on people's faces all over the globe and we truly believe that and then this time maybe more than any other in in my memory people need those smiles right now more than anything that's WWE executive vice president. Paul Leveque better known as triple h talking about the decision to move forward with this weekend's wrestlemainia thirty six. It's the closest thing to live sports. That's happened in a wild but with no fans permitted the arena and concerns over the safety of the wrestlers and staff. What will the showcase of the immortals look like in the age of Corona virus? I mean at times. It's Friday April third this. Espn daily Greg. You're ready to talk wrassling. Damn Right Excel it talking about sports with funny named people trying to punch each other in the face. Greg Luzinski is a senior writer for. Espn you can check out. Lapsed Fan's guide to wrestlemainia on. Espn DOT COM. Yeah actually I wanted to ask you think. Most people know your name from hockey. How long have you been on the Wrestlemainia beat my wrestling a Bona Fides? Go back to when I was a we child watching Hulk Hogan and the more cartoonish W. F. which really sort of capture my heart as you know through the decades there have been times where it's been okay to say a wrestling fan and then sometimes when they've you don't mention it to a lot of people. I think we're in an okay dimension it part of wrestling right now. We're sort of a necessary to mentioned it portion because there's nothing else going on and wrestling is somehow improbably still happening. How is this even occurring? Well the way it's been occurring for the W. E. and their competition. A W which Ariza. Tnt network is that they've been holding shows in empty facilities but for me that means holding their weekly television programs raw and smackdown at the W. E. Performance Center a training facility in Orlando and what they've been doing literally holding it inside of an Empty Gymnasium. I'm the game triple agent. I would like to personally. Welcome you to the. Wwe Performance Center now. This show will be different from anything you've ever seen before. Sit Back Relax. And if you can't forget about the world around you and let. Wwe Do what we do. Let us put a smile on your face to start. That was a little bit awkward because the wrestlers would come out and they would look to the crowd. That wasn't there and they would do all of the usual pantomime they would do to get the fans excited except there was no fans getting excited. You see it doesn't matter if there's ten thousand fans at their zero fans because this is how I I remember that can only way I could describe it as it's like when you're at chucky cheese and the animatronic band starts playing into an empty room. It's still playing. It's still doing. Its own thing. But there's nobody that Iraq to it and that was like the first couple of weeks of this and also they've been utilizing more space around the performance center lake attacks in the parking lot and stuff like that to try to make it feel more than just trying to recreate something inside of an empty room derailed. Me With that chucky cheese analogy this. It's the it's the rock afire explosion ban. Greg get it right. There's nothing better than being in an empty room with the rock afire. Explosion Band and just hearing the gears clunk together. It's jarring but also satisfying so wrestlemainia. Thirty six is happening on Saturday. What was the original plan for the event the original plan was to hold wrestlemainia? Thirty six at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa and this was going to be a huge event for those who don't know it's not just simply wrestlemainia. Inside of a stadium. It is an entire city being overrun by. Wwe events you have the Access Fan Festival you have the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony. Where wrestlers of old honored and put into a virtual hall of fame. Physical building doesn't exist quite yet and then also after Wrestlemainia the next day on Monday. It's tradition to hold Monday night raw in that same city so this isn't just simply one event on a on a on a Saturday night for The city of Tampa. It was a whole citywide sort of celebration for wrestling as of March. Third The W. E. and Tampa's mayor said there were no plans to postpone the event the W. E. said look the health safety of our fans and performance of our top priorities. But we remain committed to hosting Wrestlemainia at Raymond. James Stadium fast forward to March twelfth. Now you have Hillsborough County's commissioner less Miller saying he'll probably have to cancel wrestlemainia if the. Wwe doesn't make the decision itself because of the virus pandemic governor Rod Santa's that points that cities and counties should cancel mass gatherings over the next thirty days and so it was becoming a worse than worse. Look for W. E. to keep wrestlemainia scheduled framing Jamie Stadium on March sixteenth. They made the decision not to have upwards of sixty five seventy thousand people come to a stadium during a virus outbreak and instead moved into their performance center in Orlando. It's a two night event April fourth and April Fifth. How has wwe justified or explained their decision to go on with us? Well there's the public explanation and then there's the assumed explanation that the public explanation according to the WWe is that it is for the fans the fans are the lifeblood of the organization it is a panacea the fans to be able to hold this event. It is going to give them some comfort in a time of confusion and trouble. It's also going to be arrested for the performers themselves who you know are looking for some direction or looking for some focus in life during uncertain times. And that's sort of the the public explanation for this. If you know about the wrestling business you know that part of this is the fact that story lines that are going to have their big payoff. At wrestlemainia are a month long process. All the story lines all the action. They all run through. Vince McMahon they are on one track. And they're going to stay on that track through hell or high water. These are storylines narratives that the W has been planning to wrap up in culminate at Wrestlemainia happens every year and then they kind of moved to new stuff after that so from a function process to have wrestlemainia occur and wrap up which are the signature feuds and storylines of their season. If you will was a pretty important thing was there any blowback to all of this. Yeah I think there has been some in the rest in wrestling circles amongst wrestling reporters and and amongst the fans wondering okay. We are looking around the sports world. We're looking around the entertainment world. We're seeing literally every pro league every concert tour Disney on ice everything canceling out of concern about corona virus and yet professional wrestling roles on as a weekly television product so there is a bit of confusion. There're two why this continues while every other facet of sports entertainment seems to have stopped. What about amongst the wrestlers did any of them have reservations about participating in this one particular did so wrestler by the name of Roman reigns one of the bigger stars and WWe had a very highly publicized battle with leukemia? He left in October. Two thousand eighteen returned to WWE IN FEBRUARY. Two thousand nine thousand nine hundred and he's compromised so news started to break recently through some of the quote unquote dirt sheets in wrestling. The ones who report the rumor. Innuendo that Roman reigns was not going to be participating in his scheduled match against Goldberg for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemainia. Wwe basically said hey look. This is understandable situation. The health and safety of our performers paramount Sakiz. The biggest name that we know will not be participating but quite frankly until we see what events they air this weekend we won't know who else may have decided to pull out or had to be quarantined or any of that nature because they're being very clandestine about what the card will actually be the first wrestlemainia. That's taking place over multiple nights. It's also the first wrestlemainia that is going to be completely pretaped. So when did they take this weekend's event and what steps did they take to ensure the safety of the wrestlers in the people working on it? It's been a race against time for me. As I mentioned the performance center is in Orlando Florida Orlando Florida. Recently issued a stay at home order March twenty sixth that really closed out all the essential businesses. Just like we've seen all over the country so the WBZ has been racing. It's time to not only record wrestlemainia matches but also record. Future television matches programming as well as far as the safety of the wrestlers. It is a closed control facility. Stephanie McMahon the daughter of owner Vince McMahon who is the brand manager for WWe said to variety. Recently there's extensive testing screening. When you first come into the facility regardless of whether you're a talent crew member or anyone else if you have a temperature taken and you have a temperature over a hundred point four degrees you're automatically asked to leave also any wrestlers de out of the country or in contact anybody who's been out of the country you're not actually allowed to enter the facility. Either so they are taking some safety measures as far as trying to make sure anyone exhibiting symptoms isn't allowed in the facility or anyone who might have been exposed to corona virus through travel or relationships isn't allowed in the facility. Which is you know what you see from other companies as well but obviously there's no way to be sure without Virus testing whether anybody actually has the center of city so they tape this before the stay at home order. Does that mean this is going to be the last big event like this or is this something they're going to keep on doing? There is a lot of sort of mystery as to how these wrestling organizations are going to continue to keep on doing their thing. I'm not sure what the regulations mean for the performance in Orlando. I don't know if this is GonNa be it for their use facility or not. I can't tell you that. Eighty w their competition with also filming inside of an empty facility in Florida's well and there was news this week that they're gonNA be taking their show to some undisclosed to record matches going forward so I don't know if it's GonNa be a shell game where these companies have to start going to the few places around the country that don't have restrictions in place or what have you. But it's clear from both cases that even though they're putting a bunch of their product in the bag right now in our taping matches and episodes for future use on television. The show apparently is going to go on
Nomadic Matt - The OG Travel Blogger
"Two day. We're talking to one of the old. She travel bloggers. Don't believe me while if you google how to become a full time travel blogger. His website is the number one search result. Which tells you he's source anyway. We've got pneumatic maths. Aka Matthew kept nece here with us today to discuss all things travel the travel lifestyle and something. I'm not an expert. At budget trump matt. Thanks for joining us today. Thanks for having me I. I think I think it'd be interesting watching you in the hostile. You know my first time in a hospital. First and last actually. I've stayed in hostels twice when I was in college. We went to a Ireland. Right around Saint Patrick's Day for spring break. We had found two hundred fifty dollar airfare from Pittsburgh Tha Dublin and we stayed at it was actually decent hostile in Dublin. It was like a party. Hostile right near What's what's The neighborhood all. We're all the bars every bar. Temple Bar My bad hostile experience was in Paris at the peace and love hospice. Hostel Actually passed it recently when I was traveling through the Ariza. Oh my it's a bus in the past and I had a very Thursday they're eight and in eastern European was the three of us in this room and There was some language barriers and Some body odor barriers as well and and of course. Needless say I did not pass. The shower did not pass. Tvd shower tests. I think I had to contorts myself but yeah I mean they're small for me. Sometimes Mike Half Your size so matt you've been in the travel game for a long time. We're going to get into your story how you got but do you still. You're successful. You run a great website. Nomadic MATT DOT COM. Do you still stay in. Hostels all the time I say private runs now. I'm not doing dorms. But I love hostels you know I just. I traveled to meet people. And if I'm not traveling for work I like to be around other travelers so I find awesome the private room and I stay there and even if I am just there for a couple of days and I don't really get to interact with them as much as possible. I like the energy and the vibe and just kind of makes me feel a lot better than just being alone in a hotel room. So what what are the best ways to research hostels? 'cause there's obviously varying hostels right. There's like Roach just like there are hotels are crummy hotels and an awesome hostels. Like what are the tips on finding a really fun quality hostile? I always look at the reviews on hostile world Because travellers tens day a lot of hospitals so the average review is usually pretty accurate. I I like hostels with But organized tours and activities to me. That's a key component. You have a lot of hostels. These days like generator. Saint Christopher's even Free and that are just sort of like hotels for backpackers that four hundred rooms Tour groups go in there. They'll really organiz activities in hospitals all about the community and the atmosphere creates. And so I. I think it's important to find a hostile that we host lots of events. We take you out. We show you around. You know we we get people to interact with each other. What how much hostels go for these days like? I guess it depends obviously where you're going so let's just start with Europe. You're in Paris like what is a a decent you know. Explain to me. How hostile pricing works? Because frankly it's been over a decade. Yeah obviously the the cheaper ones are dirtier and thoughts out our bed or bedbugs. Real big deal with hostels. I mean they are at fancy hotels as well so I'm sure. But is it a real issue on hostile communicate? It's less common than you think because Hostels are hyper aware of it. And so they're always cleaning beds and they're always Taking precautions against it. Obviously the the crappier the hassle bus they care but is such a cute issue that all the good houses are really focused on minimizing that and in the twelve years. Now where are we in? Fourteen years the backpacking in hassles. I've only seen bedbugs once and it was in a hostel in Cambodia But you know I'm pricing. Your average dorm in Europe is highly twenty euros for like something. That's like twelve beds and then the smaller you get. It can go up to thirty thirty five euros. Especially if it's a popular hostile and the city like When my favorite hostels define Pagan Amsterdam and now it's like thirty five dollars a night to stay there. It's really expensive So expensive for dorm room. Yeah a private room is usually around eighty To one hundred euros which at that price it. It's not you can get a hotel or an AIRBNB. That's about the same thing so usually i. I say they're simply because I want the community. Yeah it's less about the price more depending on. I think there's a stereotype about hostels. It's young backpackers wild single to people. Do couple say hostels to like. I've seen couples. I've seen people that are my grandparents AIDS. I I you see everybody in between just like there's a hotel everybody there's a hostile forever by the there are definitely Cardi hassles that catered to the eighteen year olds. Who just want us to get drunk? But there are hostels for tour groups School groups people who just want cycle families So you know that's one of the things you look for in the reviews ways demographic of of most of us will come on and say and they're like description like come here. Just get drunk. You know like skip. Yeah tell me. Your your wildest family friendly this is a family. Friendly podcast Hostile Eddie like really crazy stories or super interesting. I got one so Kirstin from the blonde broad and I were in Barcelona. I made her stay in a hostel and It's I have. I've never named the hostile but it's a well known party one and so we got a dorm room. And there's these Brazilian guys in there and yet they're just getting drunk all the time and our last night there. I got woken up by this giant. Knock on the door and nobody was answering so I finally woke up and answered it when the Brazilian guys who was like a private room or we were in a dorm. Oh six bed. Dorm Room I met her debuted on the door at night. Will they lock you out of your key? You have key So we have gone skeet so I let him in and I go back bays like sorry. Sorry sorry not smell like. Why is the smell wise? It smells like Shit. Oh and I come to realize. Oh that's because they're shit on my hand and then I turned on the light and I realized the L. A. doorknob. Oh the Brazilian guy had shit himself in his bed ran to the bathroom leaving a trail. Oh must have wiped off because there is on the hand knob and then locked himself out and I had been the fortunate one to answer the door the only other people who was Nikkei Stan Two girls and the guidance friend so one of those imagine the screams of one of the girls had opened the thing he looks at me and he's like it wasn't make now's like who else could it be. It was Kirstin and encouraged him. We love you and he's like I just. I was like the trailers right to your bed so I go wash my hands you know. I watched the DOORKNOB. I washed my hands twenty thousand times. You change rooms at this point. I mean we're getting like two hours but will when I got back to the dorm were you able to go back to bed No but when I got back to the dorm his bed was in the hallway and he had wiped up the floor but he was sleeping on a mattress and to this day. I cannot figure out where that matches came from because all the germs are locked but he managed to find the mattress. It's wasn't my mattress. Something tells me this might not have been his first time pulling the style so when we wake up and I tell Carson the story. She's like no way that happened. No Way and like there's no transcendent. Wake up from the smell in the room. He wiped it up pretty fast but so all the all of us have curtains so I had grabbed the carton with my like poop covered hand and there were like Poop streaks. I was like Oh here. Here's the proof and seed as like we have to get out of the hospital today and we actually went to the w after that point extreme at WSB pretty
How to Choose a Name For Your Podcast
"This actually came up after a chat chat with somebody at a networking eventual workshop last week. And this person I was chatting to was really stuck on what to name their podcast and they really found this as a hurdle with even starting a podcast. So they knew they wanted to do on. And they're quite confident with the content that they would share but are really stuck on naming it and there were few things that we chatted about which really helped her and so it made me think it was good episode today and it might help view. If you're a little stuck on how to name your podcast now. There's a few different things that you can think about when you're naming it and there's a few different ways you can name aamot firstly. You could name after your name which there are plenty of podcasts out there that do that Sorry if your personal brand is your business then perhaps you will call it the your name show so for example one of my clients is Lauren Murphy. And her brand cheese brand anticipates no brand and sorry her show is called the Lorraine Murphy show. So you'll see a lot of people actually calling the shy your name podcast or the your name Shari sorry another way to name it. Is You know something obvious about the topic. Saw If we take my podcast example mine is all about podcasting and and sorry podcasting. Tips and tricks is very obvious what it is about by the tidal. It pretty much is what it says on the CAN. So that's another way that you can do it. You can think about humane topic or your main topics and you can name it after that. Now you can also name at something quirky which. I really love some podcasts with Quirky working night But I guess one thing you just want to be mindful of here. Is that if you do use a quirky name. Make sure you use a really good tagline. So that explains that's what the podcast is about so that you can come up in searches as well so that you sort of fed through some keywords into that tagline so that you can still. Toby found so. There's three ways that you can actually go about brainstorming. The name of your podcast. I do actually get us quite often. is how to check checking. That's already gone so a couple of places that I think is a good way to check. If that podcast name is gone is firstly to go. into some of the bigger podcast cost directories like apple podcasts. spotify and even just going into Google and typing in the name of the shark that you want to use so that will bring up any search results so google will usually bring up the search results for anything in Apple PODCASTS and spotify. That's named that but it's still worth going into the directories and having a look doc. Some people take that step. Further as well and going check business name directories and see if there is actually a business name with that because quite often a a business name where we tried marked. Sorry if you check that Business Name Directory Upfront. If it's something that is likely to be cold business name and that may be worth join because you don't want to start you podcast necessarily just to find that in a few weeks after you launch that someone comes and says that you can't use that name anymore now. Here's something that you should know if you're finding that you get stuck on actually launching your podcast. Starting your podcast. Because you can't work out the PODCAST CAS nine you can actually change it down the track now. Obviously I would say it would be great if you can work out that name upfront. But but if you re brand or something like that down the track then you can change. The name of your podcasting is actually quite an easy process. Some hosting providers. Actually ask you for a slug. When you're sitting up your Shari's I for example Lipson ask you to set up a slug? which is the word so some people will use the name of this shark Dr Others will sink a little bit bigger than the name of this show because if they want to change it down the track they can't change that would slug in Libson for example. So just be mindful when you're naming the slug of your show if you have to do that in your hosting setup that if you are thinking you're not one hundred percent sure on the ninth then maybe make it something that went down the track some hoist on the other hand provide like an ID number in the Ariza's feet or as the slug ugh. And therefore you don't even worry about that changing the name of your podcast when you're hosting on a provider that doesn't use the slug in the URL. Makes it very a easy. It's just a matter of going into the heist. Changing the name in the show settings and changing your cover art. Sorry that was really what I wanted to touch on today. This person isn't that always speaking to and a couple of people that are in the conversation were quite surprised to know. It's easy to change the name down the track and that always saying don't let that be the thing that stops you from getting your message out to the world so hopefully that has helped you. If you're stuck on your podcast nine. Look I know when I I was thinking about this Shari I really sort of bandied around. Lots of different nines in a really wasn't sure what to go within so sometimes just making that decision going ahead and stopping and then if it really doesn't resonate with you down the track you feel that you've pivoted you podcast. You can change it then so I guess the key takeaways there are sit down and brainstorm. How do you want to name your show? Do you want to name it after your name. If your personal brand do you want to name it the subject that you'll be covering or do you want to name it something quirky and give it a really smart tagline to make it obvious what it's about. What do the research and see if there is already a podcast with that name? And you can check google the podcast directories as well as business name. Directories check that but know that you can change it and don't let the name be. What stops you from starting your podcast because this is one of those things where you can just push through and just stop getting your message out there
Shady Deals at Trump Properties
"President surrounds himself with criminals? His campaign chair. His deputy campaign chair is former national. Security Adviser you. You get the picture and as a rule if you're a politician that kind of thing isn't generally a great move but it does offer one surprising benefit when one of those folks turns turns on you you can point to their own shading dealings and say what anyone trust this person and as the president has defenders go after Parnasse repeating the same. You can't trust him line or I don't even know him remember. We have seen this all before with the last bag. Man Who talked about President Michel Com for about a decade Cohn was the Executive Vice President Trump Organization and Donald Trump's special counsel in September of two thousand seventeen profile of him appeared in Vanity Fair entitled. Michael Cohen would take a bullet for Donald Trump. The piece points out cones extreme loyalty to the president quote cone has been described as the sixth trump child. Or as Tom Hagen in this twisted version of the Godfather and sometimes as both Michael Cohen was the president's fixer but that relationship started to fall apart in early early twenty eighteen as news leaked out of illegal hush money payments made to women ahead of presidential election by April the FBI had redid. Cohen's office and hotel room in Hatton seizing recordings electronic devices. Initially the president was supportive of his longtime attorney. Michael lawyer who. I've always liked him respected. Most most people will flip if the government lets out of trouble sorry. I don't see Michael doing that. Despite the horrible which hunt and the dishonest media but on the day after Cohen pleaded guilty to do eight federal crimes including campaign finance violations. Implicating the president directly as an unindicted co-conspirator individual one the president trashed him quote. If anyone is looking for a good lawyer I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen burn months later. Cohen found himself before Congress delivering a warning. I did the same thing that you're doing now. For Ten years I protected Mr Trump on for ten years and I can only warn people the more people that follow. Mr Trump as I did blindly are going to suffer the same consequences suances that I'm suffering. Michael Cohen pulled back. The curtain. On trump world in two thousand eighteen and live parnasse did that last night telling us what an absolute cesspool of conflicts flicks of interest corruption and shady characters around the President United States. We'll talk about that next today. The the FBI showed up at the home of Robert F. Hide just days after the house. Intelligence Committee released text messages. Provided by indicted Giuliani associate partners in which hide appears to be representing sending himself as actively surveilling then. US Ambassador Ukraine revanche high was told NBC News. He was drunk and unserious when he sent those tax. The question you have to ask ask yourself is how did someone like Robert. Hi gain access to the United States and the answer to that was laid out by himself told Rachel maddow how easy it is to get. Close the presents inner circle just show up at the trump international hotel in Washington DC. That's how Parnasse himself met Robert. Hi You met him where I met him at the I think the trump hotel yes trump hotel. He was a regular at the bar because it was like a breeding ground that trump hotel so it every event would be there so everybody would hang out there afterwards. Everybody all the meetings would be there. So it's basically you would see the same people every day or the same congressman that supported the president would be there and nobody else so he was a fixture on site he was always there and but he was always drunk. What you got in the stands where the trump hotel it's like one a big Cesspool and there's really hard to keep any secrets for more on that Cesspool joined by independent journalists sack efforts in the last two years staking out the trump hotel and writing up what he saw in the eleven hundred Pennsylvania newsletter and an article for Vanity Fair titled Power Tripping the swamp how trump's DC hotel swallowed Washington Zach. This is your beep deep probably more than it is anyone's beaten. I'm curious how is description. Squared with what you've been reporting over the last two years it's spot on. I mean Robert Hyde was on my radar Ariza early as April e. You look at his instagram. And they were pictures of him with the president pictures of him with the vice president all sorts of important people and for him it actually transcended ended the trump hotel. I think he was at six different trump properties. But if you want to project important you can just go hang out at the hotel and take some pictures one of the things that has struck me about about this where we are right now. The impeachment is usually it is very hard to get to the present United States and and and that's for that can be really maddening for people when you're trying to if you're working in the in the staff of the White House and you want to get the president something on his agenda. It's hard to get to him This president seems remarkably easy to get to buy all kinds of people with all kinds of agendas and it seems like his properties are the nexus of this this kind of soft corruption absolutely. I spoke to the president at the trump trump hotel. I was staying there researching one of my articles in for the cost of a nice steak dinner I was able to chat with the president which mix for really good social media posts there so if you you just you know hanging out there take your pictures with your Kevin McCarthy user Mike Pence's as they go back and forth now they're usually not upfront in the bar they're usually going back and forth from the entrance way way to private rooms but see them coming and going you can collect enough pictures and you look like you're really important and then what do you do with that really important the look like you're really important. Well well I think with Robert Heidi. He's using it to run for Congress and there are certainly some other people who are running for Congress typically Republican challengers who seem to be collecting pictures of themselves to the trump hotel. But I've seen some people move from the lobby where the lesser swamp. Thing's hang out to the back rooms and I. I don't know exactly what they're doing to get back there. But looking on social media it almost looks like that they are puffing up their importance with a lot of pictures and then all of a sudden they kind of get to be important That's interesting what. What do you mean by backrooms described it because at one point apartments talking about a private dinner with the president which I think happens there in the hotel room? What is what's the sort of distinction between the the the lobby bar in the backrooms actual important power players are so there's really two tiers if you go out in the lobby? That's where you're gonNA find you not even Fox News host but like Fox News guests are going to be hanging out there. People who really wanted to be seen in need to be seen to kind of project some sort of importance but they may not actually be that important example. Corey Lewandowski is somebody. You'll see it there rudy. Giuliani was the exception to that. But it's the back rooms. It's the trump townhouse which is where if died with dined with the president. And it's the Franklin study in the Lincoln Library where they had those private events. And that's where you'll see the mingling with special interest groups that have flown in lobbyists. Anybody can see them coming back and forth though to the main entrance which is where some of these other interactions come from and is that final question here like do like my understanding from the reporting we haven't from the disclosures that special interest groups if you're trying to get a rag changed if you're trying to get a piece of legislation like they we know that's the place to go and that's where those back room meetings happen. It can't hurt. There's absolutely no downside to booking the trump hotel now. I spoke to lobbyist obvious really early on when it was clear that hotel was going to stick around. said they're going to go there to try to influence them in response was of course they are. Why wouldn't they yeah? Search efforts in who's been covering this beaten his newsletter. Thanks a
Automated Machine Learning with Erez Barak
"All right everyone I am here in Orlando at Microsoft ignite. And I've got the pleasure of sitting with Ariza Barack Ariza's group manager for as you're as welcome to the uh-huh podcast. Thank you thank you great to be here. Great to be with you. Sound super excited about this conversation. We will be diving into a topic that is generating raining a lot of excitement in the industry. And that is Auto Amal and the automation of the data science process But before we dig into to that. I'd love to hear how you got started working in Melanie. I it's a great question because I've been working with data for quite a while and I think roughly about five to ten years ago. It became apparent that the next chapter for anyone working with data has to we've itself so the AI world and the world of opportunity with AI is really really only limited by the amount of data. You have the the uniqueness of the day you have and access you have data And once you're able to connect those two worlds and a lot of things like predictions new insights new directions sort of come out of the woodwork. So seeing that opportunity imagining that potential has naturally led me to work with the. I was lucky. Enough to join the AZURE. Ai Group and does really three focus areas within that group. One of them is machine learning. How do we enable data scientists of those skills to operate through the machine learning life cycle starting from the data to the training registering the mouse to put them in productions in managing them a process? We call Emma Lops so just looking at that end to end and understanding understanding how we enable others to really go through that process in a responsible trusted in known way. There's been a super exciting journey so far and so did you. Do you come at this primarily from a data science perspective or research perspective engineering perspective. I I think one of the above or all of the above. You know I'm actually going to go with all of the above. I think it'd be remiss to think that if you're gonna hit it from a data science perspective live and you're trying to build a product. Yeah really looking to build the right set of products for people to use as they go through their journey. You'd you'd probably miss out on an aspect of it if you think about. The engineering perspective will probably end up with great. Infrared doesn't align with any of the data science. So you really you gotta think between the two worlds and how one empowers the other. You really gotta figure out where most data scientists ovo skills need to help. WanNa help are looking for tools and products and services on Azure to help them out. And I think that's the part I find and most compelling sort of figuring that out and then really going deep where you land right because if we end up a billing sticky. We're going to spend a whole lot of time with our the data signs customers data science internal teams and figure out. Well how should I look like but if you're building something like ultra mel that that's targeted not only at the deeper data scientists but also the deeper rooted data professionals. You WanNA spend some time with them and understand not only what they need but Kahad that applies to the world of data science. And what were you working on before Azzura. So before as R- a Microsoft I worked for a team in culture data retreated created the set of data platforms for our internal teams and prior to joining Microsoft. I worked in the marketing automation. Space Company called op Fai and again the unique assets. We were able to bring to the table as part of op. Find the world of marketing automation were always data-based. We're always sort of looking at the data assets marketers had instead. What else can we get out of it? Machine learning wasn't as prevalent at the time. But you could track back to a lot of what we did at that time. And how machine learning would have helped if it was used on such a general basis. Yeah one of the first Machine learning being use cases that I worked with were With folks that were doing trying to do like lead scoring and likelihood likelihood to buy propensity to buy types of use cases. I mean that's been going on for a really long time. So we're on a podcast so you can see me smiling but we did a lot out of a worker on building glow lead scoring okay and you ristic's and manual realistic sense of general us. Ticks and you're is that the customer could customize and today today you've seen that to really evolved to a place where there's a lot of machine learning behind I mean it's perfect for machine learning right you've got all data it's fresh it's coming. You know does insights sites. That are really hard to find out once you start slicing and dicing it by regions or by size of customers. It gets even more interesting. So the whole the makings for you're adding machine learning really make. You are getting pretty excited about various Nice Nice. You want to dive into talking about auto. I Mel this is probably for the level of excitement that and demand for Ah Auto Amal and enthusiasm That folks have for the topic not to mention the amount of confusion that there is for the topic. I probably not covered it nearly enough on the podcast. You know certainly when I think of when I think of Auto Amal there's a long kind of academic history behind the technical approaches that That drive it it. But it was really popularized For many You know with Google's cloud autumn L. Twenty eighteen and like before that they had this New York Times. Sometimes you know they had this PR win. That was like a New York Times article talking about how you know I was GonNa create itself and I think that contributed a lot to for lack of a better term in the space but then we see it. You know all over the place. There are other approaches. More focused on kind of citizen data data science. I love to just start with how you define Auto Amal and you know is is is your take on it as a space and you know it's role and importance that kind of thing I think I can. I really relate to many of the things things you touched on. So maybe I'll start and this is true for many things. We do Adra but definitely for Auto Mail on your point around academic roots Microsoft Microsoft. Has this division gold. Sr Microsoft Research. And it's really a set of researchers who look into leading edge topics and drive the world of research in different areas and that is when we first got in our team introduced to Oto Mel. So so they've been doing. Research of a subset of that team has been doing research around the ultimate meal area for quite a few years. They've been looking looking at it. There have been thinking. Well you know it started yes. I've heard centers AI. Making A. I don't know when he started getting into it. Like what does it me. And then it means to be honest. It means a lot of things to many people. It's quite normal. Used will be quite frank. There is no one standard industry the standard definition. That says. Here's what I can tell you what it is for us to continue what it is for our customers. I can tell you where we're seeing. It make a ton of impact and it comes to using machine learning capabilities in order to help you being the data scientists create machine capabilities in a more efficient in a more accurate in a more structured fashion.
