Could Gay Actor Rege-Jean Page Be the Next James Bond?

"So one week after the little Cuban actress Ana de Armas says she doesn't want to see James Bond and be anything but straight and be played by a straight man. Here comes the writing directing team of the Russo brothers, right? Frank and Joey Russo, they've got a different bent on this topic. They would love to see the guy from Bridgerton, Regé-Jean Page played 007. They don't care who these gay at all. In fact, they love it. Apparently his good looks and his charm have convinced them that he'd be the perfect person to replace Daniel Craig. They did an interview on some, I don't know, radio times dot com. And they mention now they can see the actor as the next James Bond. They said, he's fantastic. I mean, he has more charisma in his pinky than most people doing their entire body. So we watch him do anything. I mean, we'd watch him read the phonebook, I had to check to see if they're both gay. Who talks this way. I don't get it. I really don't get it. But then again, I tried to watch Bridgerton, I couldn't leave the TV fast enough. I don't like TV shows or movies with a woman, the women are wearing so much material on their body that you spend more time unbuttoning and untying her dress than you do having sex with her. It's too puritanical those shows. I can't get into them.

"Hulu. We saw when she found out the receipts. We saw Kim pick up the phone and call her, but let me tell you something. Go. If she had known, if my sister picked up the phone and said, hey, by the way, you know, we found this out. It's all over online. And she would have said, you know what? He told me about this two months ago, and I'm just, I'm letting it go and letting God have this baby, and I'm going to keep my life intact and I'm going to let him go do it. As well. I think that would have been fine. That would have let us know that she had a heads up. It's just not letting people know. It's not being honest. Do we know if they are together now? No. No, no. They are coping. They're parallel parenting. They're what I'm saying. I don't even sure there's a co in there. I feel like they're just on the same track. 100%. I don't even think they're really a Kardashian village. That is a massive family with so many people to care for these. I mean, the fact that she was going to have a sibling, then Khloe seems like she's a great mother. She bring that baby every week. She brings that baby every week. I would bring true everywhere. And so cute. I mean, but listen, as gay people, we have to understand the legality of it. Like, you probably want to have like a full blown sibling for your kid. It makes it easier, rights wise. I mean, even what you were saying, Justin. Like, yes, you might not want to be in a relationship. You might like, you might want to be in a relationship where you might not want a baby. I'm sure she was just like, girl, I just want you. I just want to get sperm. I don't want to deal with your like, where's that? Right, I just want your firm. I just want your sperm. Lady Gaga, next single. I just want your sperm. I'm into that. You guys. And by the way, mazel to Chloe, congratulations. That's amazing. A baby is a blessing. Yes. No matter what. Ben Affleck's ex no, no, actually not, no, no. Don't take that back. Take that last statement back. Not always a blessing, not everybody wants it. Ben Affleck's ex Ana de Armas says the media frenzy over their relationship drove her right out of Hollywood. They dated in 2020 and she tells Elle magazine out July 26th that the attention was horrible. And quote, it became a little bit too much. There's no escape, there's no way out. Anna now lives in the world's second dirtiest city, New York. Wow. I'm kind of mad about this because it drove her out of Ben Affleck's arms and into the arms of my husband, the books. She is dating my man, honey, Paul boo. I'm so mad about it. You were this close. It was so close. I'm not close to ball boob. I slept on this relationship, and when I first saw the image, not to be ageist because I'm getting older myself. I thought it was like his daughter or something, because in the photo, she looks significantly younger, but I will say, when you date someone of this magnitude and you've seen his career, his dating career plastered in the rags, you know you're gonna be a part of that. You know, it sucks. Yeah, but you know what? It's funny because I think she had a real relationship with this man. Of course. And what happened was she saw it, how it went in the past, but people don't realize that that kind of scrutiny still exists. Yes. Could you guys do that? Could you date someone this high profile? Yeah. I don't think I can. Oh my God. I think I could, but I think it would depend on the high profile. Like, I don't think I could date a Kardashian level of that. That would be like too much all over the place. But you know, I could date like, what kind of a working actor Scorpio, what about you? Do that? Oh, I want a dude who works a meter maid. I want somebody who's so low key. You watch nobody knows. Like, when I look at and think about the man I want. When Dolly Parton talks about Carl. And people who have been in her band for years have no idea who Carl is. That's the shit I want. I'm sorry. Run me a Carl. I'm here for Carl. If your name is Carl, please go ahead and slide into justice. With the K or C. That's not right. I'll get it to him. Absolutely. But I think celebrities, honestly, you're up and coming actress. This media attention is great. That's the thing. It's a mixed split. It's a mixed blessing. It's like chocolate though. There is a perk. Chocolate is great. You love a little bit of chocolate, but if you have too much, it makes you sick and I think that's what ended up happening with this whole thing, but she said that she moved out of LA and I live in New York and I know for a fact that she is happy because she made a good old man. That's a good man. Paul young man. She took mommy in. But he got a brother. Coming for your ass, Joey. Well, Anna was back in Hollywood last night for the gray man premiere. She kicks butt alongside Ryan Gosling and Francesca got the chaos talking about all kinds

"Cat Armas has a powerful question. What if the greatest theologians the world has ever known are those whom the world wouldn't consider theologians at all? That query is at the heart of her book, abuelita faith, what women on the margins teach us about wisdom. We're gonna talk about that wisdom and those teachings, along with how cats personal journey through faith and academia has shaped her thinking on how the world would be different. If those voices were front and center. Kat, thank you so much for doing this. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so happy to be here. I'm so happy we finally made this work. I want you to take me back to your earliest memory of questioning your own faith. I think that has been something that I've been doing my entire life. I mean, I'm sure many of us have Cuban and we were sort of just raised in this Catholic, this Roman Catholic faith and something you just sort of just did, right? For me, my grandma was the Beacon of spirituality in my life. And so I would go to church with her and I would watch her sing on the choir and I went to my catechism classes and CCD and all of that. And I remember, yeah, just really being moved and just into a lot of what we were talking about and I just remember watching telemundo and seeing other apparitions of Mary everywhere like on the side of a house or like seeing Mary like on a piece of toast and I just remember that first I was terrified of it. You know, I was terrified of these apparitions of Mary, but I was also like in awe of them and wondering like, man, it's marrying an appear to me. Like, what if I see Mary? What does that mean? And so these were moments that really shaped me, but it was just normal. It's part of my everyday life. I really wasn't until I became an adult. I began really wrestling with, well, what do I believe? And what does this mean for me? And it was leaving my little Cuban bubble of Miami. And arriving to a place where I was the oddball out. I was one of the only latinas in my where I was at and people just looked at me like a deer in headlights. Like, who are you? That definitely wasn't the earliest memory of me questioning my faith, but that was when I began to really wrestle with my cultural identity and my faith. Once I left my bubble where I was part of the dominant culture and I was met with white mess, I had to wrestle with, well, that faith that I had as a kid where Mary could appear to me anywhere, and it was miraculous, and it was ridiculous, and it was weird, but it was beautiful. Those moments with abuela or the women that raised me sitting in front of an ultra praying a rosary and putting out little things of water for the saints and driving through past houses in Miami and seeing the sun last arrows with a dog licking their sores and being freaked out about it, but kind of understanding that that was sacred and holy. Yeah, I began to question that. As a Cuban Catholic, that, of course, is all very resonant with me. A little different in New Jersey, but still some of the main themes are there. It is interesting to me to hear you speak with such affection for Catholicism, given that you do become intellectually very critical or you at least begin to interrogate it intellectually, and you yourself choose at some point to convert to Protestantism. What prompted that conversion? Yeah, so I think during that time in my life, when I was just a young adult and just really wrestling with my life and my career and what I wanted to do and who I was. I was invited to this Protestant event. And I was just really drawn by the community and the fun and the lights and the this and that, you know, it just seemed so exciting to me. It has a very different vibe because I likewise the same way like my mother is a very much a questioning Catholic. She let me go to CCD because of my grandmother would take us and I think she thought it was like an hour and a half of free babysitting. And same thing on Wednesday, the neighbors who were at an evangelical church, she let me go with them because again, it was like two hours of babysitting, but the vibe was so different. I remember being like, you guys got songs. People stand up and this is a party. I was like, we're not having a party in Catholic Church. Exactly. And I think that that was what drew me. But again, there was so much cultural stuff that comes with that. And it wasn't until I left Miami and you know, I left my Catholic bubble that I was like, oh, no, this is like very deeply culturally embedded. And I am an outsider, 100%. Can you give the listener a sense of where you were where you felt that? It was in New Orleans, and I say New Orleans, but where I was. It was a very small subculture of white evangelicalism. And so I kind of arrived there, and it was a culture shock. I had this just completely different worldview, a very different idea of what God was. And it was complicated for me because I was raised by a single women, a single mom and a single grandmother and was raised to just be confident and loud and just say what you believe and whatever because I had no choice. We were all just women. There was no men in our lives telling us not to do that. You know, it was loud and opinionated and all of these things. And so when I got there, it was, yeah, it was very hard to navigate. And I quickly was like, I need to get out of here. I mean, so much so that you leave the first seminary. Was there an inciting incident or was it a series of smaller microaggressions? It was definitely a lot of micro aggressions, but I can remember the one specific moment that I was like, I need to go, and I had been studying and I've been paying the same tuition as everyone else, right? Like you're studying, you're doing the things. And I was very serious about my education. And I was in class one day and they were talking about how important it is to learn the specific ancient languages that I was like, yes, you think I was studying Greek, and I was sitting Hebrew, and I was like, all about it. And all of a sudden, the professor looks at me and he's like, and ladies, your husbands will be very impressed if you can execute scripture alongside them. And yeah, and I was just right. And I was so appalled because I was like, what do you mean my husband's going to be so impressed? I'm not doing this for my husband. Why do you think I'm here? I'm paying this money and I'm putting in the work and so that was the moment that I was like, no, I have to go. But there were a lot of little moments very similar to that. Yeah, and just being a Cuban woman in that setting was just very bizarre for everyone, including myself, and does that change them when you go to the second seminary? Yes, a little bit. I would say, so the second seminary was in Los Angeles. And so we had a lot of LatinX people there. We had a whole program for Latinos and theology. And so it was very different, but I would say, in general, I mean the institution, academia, whatever you want to call it, is predominantly white and predominantly male. And so at the end of the day, you're going to hit roadblocks, culturally, or ethnically. And then also, if you're a woman. And so I think that while there were spaces where I was free to explore when I wanted to explore pursue what I wanted to pursue at the end of the day, theology, I mean, if you think back to the history of colonization, you think back to all of these things. I mean, theology is owned, essentially, by white men. So.

Now this is totally frivolous, but two movie fans are suing universal for $5 million over an actress being cut from the movie yesterday in 2019 on a de Armas was featured in the previews for the movie, but her character was cut at the last minute because test audiences didn't really like her in there. But these two people are honored the army's fans, so they need lots of money because they lost 20 bucks or 30 bucks or whatever it took to go to the movies. Talk about a reason why people don't like the legal system before we even get into big important details like a roe versus wade, like the ability for D.C. to vote, the court system has to deal with things like this. That's why the legal process is so messed up.

Yeah i mean just to continue to grow in that developed that Go close to one another so that we can yes. We were all going in the same fight right like like in baseball. I kind of had that. I mean we all wanted to win right but different guys at the end of the day. Different guys at different plants. Right guys we're using college to get to get an education so that when they graduated they can move on with their lives. 'cause that everybody's gonna nobody i mean not everybody's pursue the pros. Yeah even in high school round. Like there're guys that i mean that's not lost contact with of what there were guys over. Just doing baseball in high school but they were never going to pursue it in college and so like even in that sense guys had different reasons for why they were doing what they were doing. We were all together but they didn't have the same goal or the same mindset that i had now with these guys we all have the same mindset. You're all going towards the same. Yeah all wanna be saying we all wanna bring people closer to christ and yeah just like yeah be instruments. god's love of his mercy Bring people to the lord so now thinking about your you know while you're in the middle of your pastoral year. Have you any idea of where you'd like to be as a priest. What type of Parish would you like to be in a growing parish like saint faustina. Would you like to be in an established parish one with the school. Have you ever thought about what kind of pair she might wanna be in once you get you know once you're ordained a priest well as i guess as a parochial vicar. I think anything would work like this. Place would be amazing to be at as parochial vicar Especially because by that time you get closer to actually building the church. Yes the new building will be done by that point. And like there'd be more development here so it'd be cooler like comeback and see how much off grown says my time as a pesto royer seminarian. I mean something that i think. Maybe the lord is drawing me to would be like something maybe college ministry okay like working with young adults or working with with teenagers. Because like something that i am passionate about. It's like walking with these kids. Because i mean they're such crucial times in their lives rilot. Yes kids in high school kids in in college..

Do you know that he uses scripture. Yes like i said earlier. Open the bible. Yeah guy's not gonna speak to you if you don't open the bible it's that simple right. He uses other people right specifically as priests. Yeah right leg. So are you listening. Are you seeing like. are you taking in what. Father so-and-so has to say about certain scripture passages or what he says the homeland what he says to you and direction or in the confessional still like that And i mean there's other ways to creation in general to Right you look at the night sky.

"That confidence to say god is real and he's revealed himself to me. That's i mean it's crazy so after you wrote that in that journal what happened. Then i mean like i said was still going crazy man like how i really wanted to tell somebody at that point having like church friends. Yes outside of like the guys from the nights and stuff like that but then they wouldn't. I didn't think they would know what was. Was that the point where you said. Okay i'm gonna know obviously because race now or no because that had happened the night that i had the other. That's like it was just like it was just building up from that okay. Steppingstone deny back in october was the steppingstone is crazy. Because you know what's he like blows my mind how the lord works because then night back in october happened to be my nephew's birthday and i didn't go to his birthday party because i went to this retreat. Okay so like his birthdays. My anniversary of like my first encounter with god you'll remember. They always remember that. And i'll always remember. The february day is four days before my birthday. Okay so like yellow just that these two moments like solidified. Nine just my vocation but like my desire to be a saint. My desire to give god by entire life. Giving my everything right like at that point i was. I was one hundred percent for the church for the lord. And so yeah. I mean at that point like like i look back on it now like those experiences in my right. Look the lord gives you gives law gives you these these moments not for yourself but so that you can share them and so like when i look back on my life now i see that it was. God didn't do this because he wanted to prove to me that he's real or whatever he used. He gave me those moments so that i can share them with others to help others on their path on their journey with him on on in their relationship with them. It's not about you. it's not about me right. And so yeah. Like i said like i heard his voice. I know it's real and it just gives me this. I'm like man. I'm getting pumped right now. Just thinking like yeah giving like when gave you talks just telling god desires to do the same thing with you. He want to you. He speaks to you. The problem is that you don't listen kind of thing. When i wanna talk to certain people in i mean it also depends on the person right like.

Oh definitely say like. That was where that was the first time i really felt the lord. Speak to me because i mean yeah. I saw the visions in the earlier like the imagery of the other encounters. I got but this one was the first time i'd heard this woj when he say it was. It was crazy like so during this this period.

I don't remember what we talked about that night but It was a once a month meeting that we were doing with with this Discover the road and so i was going faithfully every every month and yes.

Okay to one of his kids and he's all of what you can't because you're not confirmed on my what the heck is not only even confirmation is and so they need tells me that it's a sacramento that you need to be fully initiated to the church You need to be other Like why the heck don't have that. He's only because you stop you. Stop going to see you. Stop in more preparation so because of baseball prioritize baseball. Yeah and so. When that happened i was just like well. What the heck this is. This isn't good. I i was not happy with my parents at that point. I didn't go start argument. I was not happy with what their decisions. I guess and i mean i didn't know any better either and so that same year that i was playing i also i answered our cia. And so i was doing. Rca at my parish. Now my home parish on cnn and tumble okay. And during the and it was during those nine months of Getting ready for confirmation that priesthood was still kinda. It was there but it wasn't anything. I was really pursuing okay.

I was always practicing you name. It i was doing as far as baseball is concerned you realize how many hours they're wearing a day I realize how much more free time i well. I guess how much time it actually committed to baseball.

I thought they could call it. I'm glad they didn't. Because i thought columbus deserved the but like i'm pretty sure if andrew farrell's not getting pushed by jesse's artists he clears that all i don't know by turner cleared the ball straight off andrew farrell. I felt like neither neither of them could figure out who was going to clear it. They're like both running back. Which also it's absurd. Because it's like a ball over. The top that hits andrew farrell in. The dome has nothing. He has no idea and he plays a through ball into his own goal. Basically like the whole the whole sequences absurd.

Baby like throwing away photos are putting things under the bed but i guess when you have a life size cut out in a closet you can fold it up. You can fold it up and i go on. That many dog walks. If we're going to have to watch you to be that obsessed with each other for that much time you can be a little classier about this. That's the lately disrespectful. What a classy way to throw out of cardboard you know i could have folded it. He could take it up. You could have ripped it up. He has twelve people working for him. That really i have to say. Knock on ben for me. Totally funny i. It's so funny. Because he talks about this interviews all the time where you loved to be photographed. And he's like no. I go and take out the trash. And they're just sitting there so i mean part of me is like he'd probably get told his housekeeper. Whatever like hey this for me and then it was just they'd pitched it and now it's been terrible. Maybe he didn't give his housekeeper. Full instructions like folded up. Take it out at night. Do not let anyone see this.

What she's thirty to forty eight There's some information about her wanting another child tile and so. I sure there's a lot of love there. But i'm sure they've had that conversation. Especially if there really were engagement rumors conversation before you move into the nineteen million dollars off but it just sometimes you think like okay. I'm okay and then he's saying no. Are you really okay. Because the door is closed. I need you to really think about it. Because i want to marry you but if you don't if you want children you're not gonna wanna say with me or vice versa station.

Fueled By Climate Change, Hurricanes Are Causing Industrial Accidents. Who's Liable?

"So, you just got back from the Gulf coast where you were covering Hurricane Laura. How was your trip? The, hurricane damage was really bad. You know a lot of people down there have lost their homes, which is hard to see. Yeah and just to remind everybody Laura was the one that hit the Texas Louisiana border in August. This storm is clearly roaring. You're reaching that critical moment here. This now joins an elite group. It's in the top ten, a small elite group of the most dangerous hurricanes to ever make landfall into the US residents along the Gulf coast are bracing for potential devastation, Hurricane Lara and that area is so flat. It is so full of petrochemical facilities to their these refineries, a lot of new natural gas infrastructure, their chemical plants that manufacture all sorts of things like plastics and solvents actually even the raw materials for p. p. e., a lot of them are manufactured. Rubber gloves and surgical masks. So so what happened when the hurricane of hit all of that a lot of them shut down and when petrochemical facilities shutdown they usually release a lot of pollution right stuff that can't safely sit in pipes. So it has to be released or burn and preliminary estimates just in Texas showed that more than four million extra pounds of pollution were released. That was actually before the storm even made landfall. But the reason I wanted to talk to you is because one chemical plant caught fire because of the storm that is a look at I ten, which has now been shut down as these plumes of smoke emerged about an hour ago. The governor now is confirming this as a chemical fire has made an emergency crews responded to the inferno at via lab in Lake Charles which manufacturers pull supplies. Okay. So we've we've talked about this on the show before it didn't chemical plant in Texas catch fire after another hurricane Hurricane Harvey. Ago Yes and we talked about it on this very podcast because that fire in Texas started this totally new kind of legal battle, a climate change criminal lawsuit, and I have to say so far there is no indication that this most recent fire will lead to similar litigation but with this really active hurricane season that we're having in the super hot water in the Gulf of Mexico hoping spawn these strong. Storms head right for America's petrochemical centers I thought it might be a good moment to revisit that story and the questions that raises. So this episode, we're going to hear that story. It's a story that asks this question can companies and the people who work for them be held responsible, even sent to prison for failing to adequately prepare for climate change, you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Becky, take us back to the beginning of this story. So it's a story that happened in twenty seventeen at a chemical plant near Houston Texas, and it's when this major hurricane struck. We are coming on the air for breaking news. This is Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Harvey barreling into the Texas coastline as a category four storm with one hundred and thirty mile an hour winds. It's yeah, I remember. Hervey was kind of unique because it made landfall and then it just kind of stopped and sat on top of Texas, just dumping and Dumping Rain. Some places got as much as sixty inches of rain. There was a lot of flooding obviously, our primary layer of protection was our power supply. When the storm hit we lost our primary power. You're hearing a guy who is a division president at one of those petrochemical companies that was overwhelmed by the flooding. His name is Richard. Rendered the company he helped run it's called Arkham. We brought in emergency generators to provide backup power. So what he's describing his in the aftermath of the storm, those generators were compromised. There's this intense effort to keep the power on at the Arkansas plant outside Houston. The plant is near a major highway. It's in a relatively residential area. So why were they fighting so hard to keep the power on basically because the plant was full of chemicals that have to be refrigerated Otherwise they catch fire. We do have that breaking news that we've been bringing you throughout the five o'clock hour this brand new explosion and a fire burning. As we speak the Arkham plant in Crosby, you can see that plume of black smoke billowing into the air. In fact, you can see it for miles and miles away. So they make organic peroxides which are. Volatile Chemicals, they're used to manufacture plastics and other stuff and organic rock sides are pretty hazardous because they can catch fire if they get warm right and they don't even need a spark, right. So organic peroxides contain both fuel and oxygen and when they become unstable, they heat up on their own and catch fire. Yeah. I can really hear that PhD coming through. So the Arima plant, it had a lot of refrigerated warehouses and buildings to keep these chemicals cold, and they also have a bunch of refrigerated trailers outside those warehouses. Okay. So talk me through it. What happened that resulted in the accident so harvey was stalled over the Houston area, just dumping rain for days and the refrigerated warehouses, the buildings they were flooding as the warehouses flooded. The employees were using forklifts to move containers of these chemicals from one refrigerated warehouse to another to try to keep them dry and cool, and the water just kept getting higher and higher and the electrical generators for the buildings started. Flood that's not good and then the forklift flooded. Okay. So would you do when you're forklift floods? So according to the US chemical, Safety Board investigation employees at the plant started carrying individual jugs of these highly flammable liquids in the dark my chest high water while it was still raining to get it to the refrigerated trailers we talked about because only the trailer still had power. Yeah. I read this report and it was terrifying like I can't imagine being one of those people still there as they're in like deep water trying to move these chemicals at one point, one of the trailer started to turn over. On their side. It was really like super scary. Yeah and you might be able to guess what happens next the trailers flooded they weren't refrigerated anymore the chemicals got warmer and warmer until they caught fire. So did people get hurt when the fire started in the plant? Well, the plant had been evacuated. So the employees were okay that we know of but there were some first responders who say they were injured while they were patrolling the area that had been evacuated specifically that there is and respiratory tracts were urinated by air contamination and there were some people who live nearby who also say they were injured. By the smoke and the ash from the fires. So we knew the chemicals themselves can be toxic was the smoke from them toxic as well. That's a good question. So when the chemicals burned, they actually just turned into carbon dioxide and water, but I talked to multiple organic chemists and they explained that the problem is actually the containers that were being burned a chemist at Bryn Mawr. College Name Michelle Francis explained it this way everything from the labels on things to whatever plastic or metal that the containers are made out of all that stuff is GonNa absorb other chemicals that didn't burn entirely. So the ashes nasty. The ashes nasty so that ash is made up of container junk and chemicals that didn't totally burn. That's the stuff that potentially could have harmed the first responders and the people close by and it's not something you ideally want in the air or water right so much. So that in two thousand, eighteen, the district attorney's Office for Harris County Texas announced criminal charges against the plant manager who was actually one of the people carrying those chemicals through the water. And Armas North American CEO, and later they also filed charges against a third person and executive at the company which was really surprising to a lot of people because in general, the criminal courts aren't used to punish companies in their employees for polluting the air and water especially when it happens during big storms and I went down to Houston interviewed the district attorney about it. Her name is Kim Og-. The. Charges are environmental. They are reckless emission of an air contaminant and endangerment of persons. Reckless emissions of an air contaminant feels like a bunch of words that be polluting lawyers like. Big Words. So why did she say she was filing these charges you mentioned that there were a lot of petrochemical plants around Houston that flooded and leak stuff during Hurricane Harvey is there something about these fires that was worse? Yeah I asked her that and one argument she made is that the fires happened because people at Arkham ignored the risk of flooding like they should have known that their plant could flood like that and prepared better. For example, the plant is in a flood plain and even though Harvey dumped more rain than any US storm on record the argument the county is making. Is that there were signs that flood risk was increasing before harvey because of Climate Change we've had new normal in Houston. We've had three five hundred year floods in just a short period of time, and it's true that flooding is getting more frequent and severe in. Houston as it is in many parts of the country and something climate models have been predicting for a long time that extreme rain will get more likely as earth hotter including rain from hurricanes. So in this case, the county is basically arguing that the company had a responsibility to recognize that flood risk was increasing and do. More to keep their chemicals from catching fire. So obviously, the company doesn't agree or they wouldn't be in the middle of a trial right now what is the company say? So after the indictments for announced, I interviewed two of the layers representing Komo and its employees. One of them is pretty well known in Houston been working for a really long time. His name is Rusty Harden Arkham did everything they were supposed to do here hardened says the company followed all the regulations it's required to follow. He seemed pretty galled that employees were facing criminal charges trying to find scapegoats and calling individuals felons. Are you kidding me this is outrageous. It's morally legally ethically wrong and the point he made is that if the current regulations for chemical companies in flood prone areas aren't enough. Then the regulations should be changed by legislatures not by courts and especially he argues by criminal courts sometimes bad things happen that there's no crime. There's no responsibility is not anyone's fault we need to look forward to. The future and make sure that we are prepared for these kinds of things if this is going to be the new norm in many think it is. Okay. So becky, like what is at stake in this trial if the county wins and the company loses will that change how we think about climate change in the law it could actually yeah, I talked to this Guy David Omen he's. A law professor at the University of Michigan, and one thing he said that I think is really interesting is that environmental laws and regulations are generally based on this underlying assumption that the future will look like the past today. Already, we expect companies to be prepared to handle what I might call ordinary rainfall. What climate change is going to do among other things is change our definition of what is ordinary rainfall. Another way to understand it in a legal context is that you can be held accountable and punished. If you don't prepare for something, you should have seen coming. It's the idea of foreseeability so. Like if you know that climate change is happening, does that mean it's foreseeable and you should prepare for it yet that's the big question exactly and how foreseeable extreme weather is hinges in part on how businesses inform themselves about the climate science that's available to them, right? Yeah. Like I talked to an environmental lawyer at the Conservation Law Foundation Alina Mehalle that foreseeability isn't just a question of did you personally know that this could happen but it's really what kind of maps were available to you. What kind of experts did you hire to inform yourself about this decision? What kind of modeling

Aging in Place with Dr. Randall Williams of WellSaid

"Hey there it is a pleasure to have you on the podcast. That are Randolph Randall. Williams thank you for joining us. Hope we can take a moment here and first of all. Just introduce yourself to the listeners. Terry Good Morning. It's really great to be here. I'm Randy Williams am a physician by background. have a long-standing track record. I guess in the voice technology arena a applied to healthcare. So it's really fun to come and talk about that with you today and with your audience More recently or last year and a half two years Myself and Michael have been working on Applying voice technology to the challenges of staying healthy and active and independent as one gets older. And so we're doing that with a company called while said and we'll be happy to talk to you a little bit about that this morning as well. Wonderful just a little bit more of your background in terms of being a medical doctor. What kind of medicine do you practice and can Tusla but more about your practice? Yeah sure I trained as a cardiologist as a heart failure and transplant specialist In the Mid Nineteen Ninety S was recruited Here in Chicago to Northwestern University to A build a program for a heart failure which is Many of your listeners know is a chronic disease and it's very prevalent One of the things that I had the opportunity to do In my very earliest Kerr. Stage was to create a continuum of care for people with chronic disease. And that was something that was Informed by my Training experienced in the managed care world so it seen some of the failings of the healthcare system and how people with chronic diseases really fell through. The cracks. Were often readmitted to the hospital on -sarily and frankly lacked some of the systems and support That were needed. Stay a healthy in and out of the hospital. So we built a program Initially that provided resources both Obviously in the hospital setting but then in the home and community setting dwell and we had we had to knit all that together to be able to To help people in San top aware their challenges were arising sort of outside of the normal visibility of the healthcare system. And so we talk. We turned a two voice technology. Clear back then and Started with Interactive Voice Response and built a an application that had allowed Heart failure patients to report in every morning on how they were feeling and how they were doing. What vital signs were whether they're taking over Madison? Simple things actually. But more importantly it gave us in our staff daily visibility into how they were doing and whether there are any changes that needed support or additional services and low behold we are able to prevent you know about fifty sixty percent of hospitalizations in that group of people and That led to an opportunity for us to start exploring other chronic diseases and see if the model could apply elsewhere so we moved on and did diabetes and Lung Disease of Zima chronic asthma. Things like that And then I'm in early two thousands Low Behold Um had an opportunity to Help the US Senate Think through how they would like to see the Medicare program Adapt these kinds of approaches to save money and improve outcomes for the Medicare population Which led in turn to Taking what we had developed in terms of our technology at northwestern and began commercializing that as our first startup Back in two thousand and four I in two thousand nine After maintaining a day a week and clinic It became pretty clear that it was tough to negotiate contracts in between Patient visits and I was really Sort of doing a disservice to people to try to keep my foot into canoes and so had to make the choice to give up my Clinical practice. But you know it's interesting as Dr Amok Vanessa Miss Patient Care and the answer. Is You know for sure right. I mean I love interacting with people ella of Helping others and And fortunately many of those things have continued on in my entrepreneurial. Career what. I don't miss so much or some of the failings of broken healthcare system that really needs transformation and so Philosophically I just had to make the choice about where I wanted to try to help that. Transformation happen and And really enjoyed and thrived in Some of the business model innovation work that it takes to really transform IT industry I'm hopeful that over time my career will leave a A testimony of having supported the transformation of healthcare in a in a meaningful way. That's great that's great so I mean that's a very interesting background because when you talk about Ivy. Are you doing this longtime ago way? Before a lot of these people have entered the voice space as we know it today with the voice assistance but now in your latest iteration with this well said maybe we can talk a little bit now about that that that transformation so you went from the. It are and now you've got this company well said and what does that look like how how did how did that come about. And what does the product do? Yeah well let me start with how we got here. And then I'll tell you more about our company what we're up to but You know as we were Growling and and Building out Our initial company called Pharos Innovations We really started to hear about and see voice assistant technologies starting to emerge and Every holiday we would hear about how The Google assistant in Alexa devices. Were flying off the shelf and we we sort of scratched our head as a management team and said Hey. Wait a SEC. Maybe we ought to be thinking about bolting this technology on our Ivr Platform Armas another user interface opportunity and it had a lot of compelling reasons why we should do that but there were two constraints that we were struggling with one. Constraint was That the devices at the time were not set up for her. A compliant Interactions is that we had We had that challenge and then the other challenge. Frankly was that As a as a enabler of health care We are often at arm's length from the actual users of technology and that had some real disadvantages as well if you're going to iterating learn. I'm as as those of us know who are Into our lean startup technology or methodologies. You really need to talk to your customers you willing to talk to your users and understand what's working what's not again given the complexities of having worked with the senior population for a long time We knew that this technology would bring its own sets of barriers and challenges that we needed to understand how to overcome in order to do that. We had to get in front of older adults

Analyst Brandel Chamblee on all things golf

"All Right Ladies Gentlemen we are joined by a very special guest a friend of ours ars Panama on probably a handful types now. But I think it's been at least a year so he is the lead analyst for Golf Channel One of the best analysts in the game. I got a whole intro. Here wait till you see all this he is a PGA tour winner the Greater Vancouver Open in nineteen ninety eight. He is now defunct finished well about. We're not worried about that. He finished tied for Eighteenth at the nineteen ninety nine masters never made the cut of the PGA Championship. Which I want to ask you about tied for forty fourth at the two thousand and one? US Open tied for sixty second at the open championship in two thousand one. Pretty good stretch author of the anatomy of greatness. Which I've read Mr brand-new shambling? Welcome come to the show my friend. Yeah those last few terms are not defunct. They're still they're still they're still up and running And it's always a pleasure to join you guys Who's there in the studio? We've got myself guys. Would you like to introduce yourself Frankie here brandon. Trent also got lurch. That could to meet you four to it so you tell us a little bit pre show that you just came from a little shoot with rory. I wanted to address royal because I was just reading this article earlier. This week. That came out independent. Paul kimmage was going on with Rory. You know nothing's off limits a an amazing acing insightful interview and he mentioned you rory in this interview and there are some negative words that you have received leave before some positive words but I thought we would start with some very positive words from rory and what happened was I played a little clip from year guys discussion on live from from or golf central or whatever it was right after the Patrick read winning the masters a few years ago and the clip. You essentially Go through how this has to be the most disappointed. The point that rory's Ben since leaving Augusta in two thousand eleven you talk about Amnesia from his first tee shot that day which if anybody remembers he hits it a million yards right off the first tee and you talk about that had to creep into the rest of his game and rory goes on to say it hurts when you're on the receiving end and sometimes I think And sometimes all that stuff hurts but I think brandon was one of the smartest guys in Gulf. He's brilliant I like him. He's giving me a book on. Bobby Locke I have it here. So so what are your thoughts and hearing those kinds of comments from Roy a that that type of stuff you know it hurts to hear but also be that he says you're the smartest guys in the game. Yeah you know when you said that in a chair where somebody asked every two minutes. What do you think Why did he do that what you know? What reasons did he? You know made him win. Why did he lose those kinds of things? I mean you have to very often say critical things if people you really like and admire and sometimes you have very complimentary things about people that you don't particularly care for it's just the nature of the job and you know and also the nature of Of all of us that I could wax on for an hour about all the great attributes and the one thing everybody will remember just one critical comment Has All the time I'll do interviews with people and go on and on and on about a particular player for I don't know Ten minutes and then I might say one critical thing and then that'll be the headline and in the story or the podcast or whatever I get totally understand it But it's just hard of the. It's a part of the job I have it. So it's the nature of the job. I have in the analysis business. And you know if you say everything's great and when something comes along. That really is great. While you've desens- Does the whole world and they're not going to believe you so you know he set up there. At least I do I sit there and I just try to as best I can but shots in historical context and when they're great you know without being hyperbolic great when there are awful without being pollick awful so he goes on to sort of talk about how the Rangers that day. He had a left mess. Then he comes out to the first day and he hits it miles right right and your analysis was obviously that though that that shot is clearly. He's going to remember that throughout the entire day at affected the rest of his round. Like how could you tell that. Anita from that. Shot from whatever's going on with the swing was affecting the rest of his entire route. I it's informed by I years and years and years and years of struggling with those issues myself and You know I mean we all have those issues. You had a horrible horrible shot off the first tee or somewhere around the rest of the round in particular when you get to a place where that miss is now Even more vulnerable people because of a penalty. Then they're gonNA favor it and predictably miss it the opposite direction are they gonNA make nuanced changes to their offspring. So I've I've spent the last twenty years of my life watching golf. The way radiologists looks at X.. Rays you know I. I'm I'm all in I'm all allies and I am I research every detail of it and you know it's it's a it's an educated. Guess I guess if you want to call it what it really was but Roy May differ with me later on in that interview. He said he forgot about. It doesn't think about it and and and again I say you know. There is a crucial crucial role of Amnesia. The maintenance power of every athlete you have to be able to forget the inability to forget is infinitely more more devastating than an inability to remember for an athlete. You've got to be able to forget the bad stuff Years ago there was a people talk about about this interview that Jack Nicklaus gave or this speech rather than dynamics gave where he said he'd never missed a pot on the last hole that he needed to make and a man held his arm Arma said. Excuse me Mr Nicholas just last week I was watching you and a PGA tour champions event you had a four hundred or on the last. Oh you missed it and maybe you just kind how to forget that one. and Mr Jackson let me repeat at Never Mr Putt on the last hole of the tournament that I needed to make and the man in the crabbers incredulous and later on he went up and talked to Bob. Tell this man sin. Why wouldn't Jag just admit it? And and Bob said well hold on a second. That's how you think right and Manson absolutely got admit go so you're telling the greatest athlete of all time that he should think how you think you're far often the greatest athlete of all time or maybe. We should just all jacking and again. That's and Mesia. You need to have it. You need to extract. All of the good there is is to get out of every situation and then forget all the bad and then and then move on. I remember one time. One thing you told me was that you know in order to really get to that level level where you're a we're obviously talking about some of the best players of all time and Roy who's going to be the number one ranked player in the world again here very soon but like to get to that top level you you basis Jason like at some level you have to just beat almost delusional. I mean you have to have almost a blind ridiculous illogical belief in yourself at the Times that like your perfect and even better than you actually think you are and if you don't you just can't make yeah. I mean the game of golf for sport in general and he'd you're constantly attacked by not only the people that you're competing against but by the media and fans listen and then you have your own sort of Uninvited guests in your head. You know this little demons pop up and and you you have to lay waste all of those as best you can and you can do it through sort of you know arrogance you can do it to sort of self delusion but I mean it's rare that the the athletes can get to that place where they need to get through sort of rational balanced Thought and I think that's one of the things that makes rory such an appealing superstar. Superstar is that he's a lot closer to federal Along the lines to be approachable humble symbol And yet the right level of arrogance me word has a negative connotation to but I think it's important to have the right level of arrogance as an athlete but it's so often accompanied by the less poudel aspects of that word. The right level level of it is Well it's it's very present in Roy. So let's fast forward a couple years for his game now he's Mid's mm it's kind of insane has been since two thousand fourteen that he's won a major championship of course had really good years along the way really good finishes very consistent Golf. Where do you see his game? Now a specially as putting I mean I know you've you've done a ton of research on on putting feel versus technical and all that rory's biggest struggle has been the putting were you general thoughts on Roy's game going this year especially as putting. Yeah well I think you made changes in the way. He prepares works out and that has allowed his body to move better so he's less inclined to get injured. Still got this. You know. Full reg motion and lots of speed I think had to go there with the working out with rory I like it. Yeah but I mean He. I as I've when I criticize if you want to use that word his workout routine. I was watching him getting injured. Nagging injuries popping up. I was watching his Co.. PEDS BE DECLINE AT AGE win. It should have been maintaining or even going up and you know I mean he I I said what I said. I couldn't have it with anymore. Caveats and the next day he posted a video game. Self working out I think I've told you this before about a month later I was on a set of live from said that the match-play WDC AC match-play Roy. One in fulfilling an obligation on the set nice come up but I was busy. I was working. I didn't look his direction at intern around when he was walking off no effort to connect with him and I felt a tap on my back and turn around and goes you know I was just fm with you you know. That's that's what we do. I was just having fun because I didn't mean any armide and I was like I get no problem. I didn't take offence to it at all but but I think in the long run. I do believe that rory changed as the way he fares works out so his body moving better less inclined to get injured And then with the short game you know I think he made a good move going to work with the Brad Faxon I say work with. It's really just having conversations with then and Brad is given him permission if you will to be less careful on the grains to be more clinic more reactionary which is crazy because because you know the game of golf right now is just inundated with pseudo-scientists pat sells off as a pseudo scientists and then and then they have cluttered up the game with very complicated esoteric thoughts that are not doing their students any favors whatsoever and I think Roy did a good the job of divorce in himself from those thoughts those ideas and those teachers and he's on the right path and then I think mentally were whatever place he needed to find find he got there towards the end of last year to sort of play his best gall I think. You know the rivalry. They may not call it a rivalry but it certainly feels like looks like rivalry between Brooks So I think that's that's fine tuned. Whatever it was it was missing trump his game into To a great spot so it sets up I think beautifully for Roy going into twenty twenty. What's your relationship like with Brooks Kepco? He kind of tweeted. I love what may or may not have been a clown picture with your face on it. Yeah I don't have a relationship with Brooks I yeah. I don't have a relationship with mini tour players of said forever that my job is sort of incompatible with having relationships toward players to speak about I think Brooks's a heck of talent Allen but I I think Brooks comes to this game sort of a A team sport combative Sports Sports Mentality. I think that's the sort sort of sensibility that he brings to go off. It's not really consistent with the traditions of the game. And it's a gentleman sport I think his comments mints about there'd be no rivalry between him and rory and saying that Roy hadn't won a major championship since he was Plan the PGA tour. which which by the way is ludicrous because it was a professional Golfer and twenty twelve? He just wasn't good enough to play on the stage. That Roy was on. I do believe Roy's won three major championships. Pittsburgh successional dolphins so it was Just disrespectful Not only the traditions of the game. It was disrespectful to rory And I wouldn't be surprised if you know and and sort of a roundabout way Work to motivate rory. Don't know that I'm just guessing but but who wouldn't use that to To motivate them so. I don't think like that face picture. Brandel I don't think you like Brooks did that to you. I think he's had that comment that he wasn't good enough for a long time. He's back I don. I saw it. I thought it was funny. I actually posted a picture of myself with a clown shortly shortly after that in response to his clowns because I it doesn't bother me. I mean it's again it comes with the territory of what I do for a living did that. There's GonNa be some retribution or or Kickback from some of the things. I've said you know I I I said before I mean I'm kind of half joking but I have left a few shows before and thought. Wow I don't really agree with what I said You know sometimes it just comes out wrong. Aw Show true boy. Have I been there gene. How do I get there now? He's talking about that happened. That's breaking segment right there. I mean we. It's it's incredibly feature that sometimes you just start you come from a good place with it. You know you have the information and then by the time it all comes out. You're like what the fuck did I say seriously. Yeah I don't would agree with what I just said. It happens from time. TV or radio or PODCASTS. It's a little golf. I mean just get it wrong. Ties make mistakes as a book. You know You try not to try to learn from us. Try to be accurate you know.

UK Labour Party to Begin Contest to Succeed Corbyn as Leader

UK Labour Party to Begin Contest to Succeed Corbyn as Leader

"The starting gun was probably fired this weekend in the race to become the next leader of Britain's main opposition Labor party it has already become a crowded field with each candidate trying to offer a clean break with the past yet unwilling to upset the Labor hardcore. He seems to be the only people he wanted to vote for them. In last month's general election Who wants to begin? I I let me start with you. Whoever takes over from Jeremy Corbyn does so from a position of absolute rock? Bottom for the party. Don't don't they let let's sort of set the scene I well. Let's hope so From their point of view that it's rock bottom because sinking further would not be a good thing and that's the spirit I think. Yes I mean. Obviously the last election was a disaster. I mean particularly I think a lot of the figures that came out made it pretty clear that in fact the Tory vote hadn't uneven increased that much it was more that the Labor voted collapsed. There was a very big problem for the neighbor policy. And I think a lot of that looking at the polling was to do with Jeremy Corbyn personally there was so say Brexit was a big issue for them But I think overwhelmingly it was coming out in the polls the person she with him say almost anybody who replaces aces him is kind of starting with the level of improvement there and in a sense brexit policy now moves into different states because of course we know Brexit is going to happen on the thirty first of January. And then there's a we're going to move into negotiation stage on withdraw and all of that now that kind of changes the mechanics of that for Labour leader. They can't anymore. There's not much political to revoke cool. Remain or anything like that or they just Phillips did talk yesterday about rejoin as a future possibility But I think really it changes the mechanics. It's about them talking. Just opposing do want this posted as an opposition government opposing what the Conservatives are doing so. We're probably going to hear it. Also talk about you know Brexit is going wrongly their mishandling it etc so we have the runners and writers stepping up Mary ranging from Remain human rights lawyer. Who is a shadow? A shadow secretary He campaigned hard for a second referendum. To someone who wants to think about rejoining to cookie cookie cutter copies but in the female email form of the Jeremy Corbyn style which went down so badly with the voters. Well I think we have to look really whether it did go down so well so badly with the voters because on the one hand yes. There appears to have been an antipathy towards Jeremy Corbyn personally but when you look at the demographic of the Labor Party vote what you see is actually quite a big enthusiasm if not for Corbin personally then for his policies very left wing very old-fashioned socialist policies of nationalization subsidies all sorts of things that we haven't seen in for decades they were very popular with a generation who were in there in the earliest stages of their youth during the financial crisis. And I think this this battle as it were for the soul of the Labor Party. It's not over yet And we're looking at the moment almost only half of it in terms of the candidates who have declared so far who want to be leader. Because we're looking at center center Yes cure storm to the left. But this the there's a big gap there And we have to ask whether this is whether whether the the old style Blair. It's do they exist anymore. They certainly don't exist very much in the parliamentary party as it was elected elected at the At the last election. But where is somebody. For instance like Yvette Cooper. Where is the where the noise is coming from? Somebody who's been incredibly vocal on the sidelines from his privileged perch in New York David milliband where where people who can influence that wing of the party. We haven't heard from them yet. Does that mean that that's over. The Labor is actually varying not exactly to Corbin awesome but that is sort of more the shape of the future then Blairism or any of them up to it Mary. Well I mean. I saw some comments yesterday which was the first day really. Really of sort of Campaigning on Sunday. Talk shows where the was some comment among sort of professional political pundits. Who said actually this could shape up to be quite a sort of a thoughtful election representing a lot of different currents in the Labor abor party But of course that has its plusses and minuses. We saw during the Tory party leadership. Election there again. You had some very different prince strands and what you've come at. What you've come out with is Boris Johnson and the right as far as Brexit is concerned? But maybe not as far I things consent feather appear to be two enormous jobs here. Alex which I is the the idea of rebuilding shattered party which does does not have a unified core. And secondly won't you have rebuild shattered party. You have to be strong enough to take on the Conservatives and not only beat them but beat them so much that you bring back. All the voters deserted them for the Conservatives in the last election in that is a double task of of huge huge proportions and bring about more than the ones who deserted them because remember Labor already were in a minority so actually doing back even more than their deserted voters says and and in specific places it is a tremendous task and it's always been difficult for Labor in the last few years particularly. There are huge divides in their own. Vote Their their membership is actually overwhelmingly remain But of course in those northern seats they lost Brexit was a problem for them because a lot of Labor members in those seats are are actually much more leave so these people want something very different than how united policy that is so split on. Those different issues is a tremendous challenge. I think mirror some actually quite promising candidates but it will be very interesting to see where it goes at the moment the polls have Kissed her in the lead And I mean you know it will be interesting you see. Of course everything can be shaken up during the campaign. Go and tell me who you are promising. Candidates his Co. your is it possible leader. Well do you think kissed has a certain competence to him actually I think it's interesting to see some younger people from the left of the party. Stepping up people like Clive Lewis I would say just phillips as a slightly more centrist candidate who who is reasonably credible And you know they're all these different voices coming up. Who are quite interesting and it will be a big choice flavor which those they go for Os? I think Angela. Rayner is very promising. Who I think is standing for deputy leader From the kind of soft mid left of the party is like find degrees between centralism. Gobert is that they have Mary would what are your thoughts on on what Alex just said. I mean the mentioning of a storm is seen as the leader at the moment the leading candidate despite the fact that he is called Sir. He is absolutely very very keen to storch stress the fact that he has very humble working class backgrounds his mother was a nurse and he just happens to have done the right thing. Some are suggesting that he's the right leader. But I the four years to Leo Leo few years too late Yes. I think there is some truth in that And I don't think it's just the Sir that his kissed Armas Problem I think think he would be seen by as it were younger. Newer members of the Labor Party who joined because of Corbin He will be seen as the establishment candidate and somebody that they they will not support You know it's been it's been said ever since Labor's loss in in the election that They've got not just this huge task to unite the party. But do they will uniting leader. Actually come from the London establishment. This is the this is what kissed on represents percents. I don't know if you're a woman over forty. Five apparently secure has rather something delicious about in this Christmas dinners. But you know if you're not a AH London metropolitan women over forty five. He might not be your bag but just looking at where the next leading light could come from Alex it when I look at the way that the United Kingdom is at the moment reminds me of France about three or four years ago when the Socialists collapsed and the main political structure just didn't it didn't seem to know what to do and and then suddenly Emmanuel macron comes in with almost a brand new party a brand new voice and a bit of razzle-dazzle to boot they. They sort of tried this in the United Kingdom last year with a I can't even remember change. Could change something lasted about ten minutes. But it was one of those little flag-waving flagwaving harassing come on. Let's have a breaking the mold. Oh we is the United Kingdom so stuck in a moment here that it contacting make space for foot for newness and change that that way. I think there's a tremendous problem with the current setup half the effective two party system which had the Lib Dem's done better? We might not be talking about tea fussy system but we really are now because because they didn't break through and as Fayez Change. UK The Independent group all of these various sorts of incarnations of of trying this kind of mass challenge absolutely kind of founded and just did not take flight tool But there is a problem in that we have a social system which is a is a funny compromise permits anyway and that we have a system that was designed refused to vote for an individual. MP I mean actually policy names weren't even on the ballot paper until the night at the end of the nineteen sixties. You just had to vote for your your local. MP and you have to find out who they were vote for the candidate you like so now. We have quite strong party affiliations. Everything is very whipped. All of that and those names are on the ballot paper and yet we're we're still voting for the individuals so there's a sort of complicated compromise I think going on in terms of what you want what you should vote. And they're sort of how we got a party. She system grafted on to a kind of individual constituency. first-past-the-post system and I think that is bringing up these events contradictions and great difficulties for actually eighty four. Both big parties going forward. I mean you know the Conservatives also have a problem demographically in the future and that they're under fifty The fifties actually the majority labor in most cohorts now which is much more extreme? It used to be so as they're kind of older more brexit voters pulse on and They how are they going to speak to younger. Generation who don't own homes don't have job security don't have pensions and therefore so traditional conservative values. This don't necessarily speak to them and it's going to be for them. I think there's another question about why the UK can't produce contact figure. which is that? We don't have a presidential the system And even though this past election was fought I would say on much. More presidential style lines. The was corbin versus versus says Boris Johnson Nonetheless To campaign in a presidential election where people have direct votes for individuals then an individual candidate can make that sort of mark between parties or different from parties setting themselves above those structures. We don't have that possibility ability.

What's at stake on the field in the 2018 Heineken Rivalry Week

"We start with MLS because there is some mid week action and it's prominent midweek action because JJ this is rivalry week. Yes, Wednesday, seven o'clock, a nice Wednesday night, New York Darby to look forward to. I love it NYC FC and the red bulls navy each one one against each other. So far this season next Morales scored pretty late on the last time that they met to spoil Chris Armas first Darby between these two, typically the red bull's eye. I'm very curious about this game because I feel like both teams are pretty good and then wide CFC I feel like we're starting to see greater. Aspirant's from them on a grander scale, although they're coming off a loss at the weekends. Both teams may be hitting this game in an interesting time. Now, here's the one real quick that I, we haven't talked a lot about this, but now things are starting to happen. So I did want to get your thoughts, Thursday, seven o'clock, Chicago fire and Columbus Crew. And this has nothing to do with the game. But sadly, it's starting to feel more and more like an inevitability that the crew are going to be leaving. Columbus. The Austin city council passed a vote of seven to four for the building of a soccer specific stadium in the northern part of the city. And so now I guess JJ it comes down to this. If you give me a sec here, I'm going to read from something I saw on deadspin. They did a whole feature on this. This is from the article in deadspin.
