"I was with any other actress. It was just me and the whole crew and the parable people and they would tell me to stand somewhere. Okay do it And then for the dancing saying it was the same i was. I was the only one there. That was i worked with no other actors but that was the night that i did. Get to meet day But yeah they would show me the film of of what. The person that person was dancing. Like say okay trying to copy. That tried to mimic that like okay. Sh- so i. I should add at this point. Kudos to my orthopedist to gave me cortisone shots for because we're going my knees have to work better. Please ill is there. Is there one character whether whether it's the dancing the club scene that you enjoyed or whether it's the same in the jungle is there one character that you enjoyed mimicking more than the rest is really you not that you can like more than the rest of the one that you enjoyed making more than the rest. Mostly just that the dancers and the storrow thing was or my favorites As far as the others. I was like some of those costumes. Were really uncomfortable. 'cause they were making making replicas to fit me up their customs and it's like i i have a whole lot more respect for for a blood sport and and interests elwyn john cena peacemaker comfy costumes. That weren't also soon. We see in the jungle and poke it on me and his looking back and he sees you. And those are all customized. Oh that's right off their twelve outfits. Yeah they they actually made those costume replicas of those costumes to fit my measurements. So i was wearing exactly what they were wearing and the same materials and everything and some of them were very uncomfortable. I have to say in a geeky Nerdy geek we up all boy. I have asked james to modify bring this peacemaker home. Or oh boy i would've been. I would've been all that so you know it's a funny thing because you're in this role and i got to tell you i mean i. I was reading twitter today. It's a great follow. I'm not a big twitter guy. But i do go there. When i'm researching people's lives like yours of the fans response has got to be overwhelming for you. Truly is i am i am just blown away I mean i'm getting. Youtube comments. Instagram followers in twitter followers and people sending me messages and i am just so stunned but so great that film and my character getting this kind of support. It's just amazing. And i had this opens up more. I mean not that you need it because you're you've been really successful last. You mentioned ten or twelve years on that that this does open up more opportunities for you right. This is only. This can only be a super positive moving forward. I wonder wonder sometimes at the magic of the universe. Because the timing on this. And what's about to happen. Which i can't talk a whole lot about but i make another. I've already been cast in. They've already found two episodes of another dc project and one one of the episodes that i found is going to be airing in the next couple months so i just think a back to back. Dc product were playing villainous. Character is pretty miraculously thing. I'd say many people are envious of your situation absolutely so you know what i love about your whether it's you know the suicide squad or another role is that you show up with. Maybe you know. There's some scenarios where you have zero one line and you end up with like seven lines eight lines or one day of shooting turns into two weeks. It's it's is it. Is it because maybe the director whomever the writers get to know you a little bit and like you know something. We could do more with her than just give her an alliance or give her three words. You find that. That's the case. Do you think it's once people get to know you lynn. They're like you know what she's capable of so much more. I'm not sure what it is. But i do know that i go into every project in my head. I'm i'm trying to say okay. i'm under work. I'm a professional. You know and i interact with people and i am totally appreciated not. I'm not a diva. i'm not you know in a bad mood. Genuinely happy to be there. And i think when you're genuinely involved in the project and showing this you're just a person like everybody. I mean i treat you know the background actor a lot of them. Are you know. Facebook friends and everything that i've worked with Even though there there's told they're not supposed to talk to the principal actor so that it is just as weird it. But i always respond and talk to people and we're all just people were all the same And i think it's just kind of bad attitude of the ensemble then talented. It's like we're here to do a job and workers the grape. So let's get out of the way and do the best job that we can do. And i don't know maybe that's maybe i'm just be asking right now. I know you're making you're making a lot of sense. You know you certainly were. My favorite part is suicide squad. And i think the people were going in the theater. We're going nuts when they saw you onscreen shows that's that that's a good thing. Have any of the actors that you had to mimic whether it's on the dance floor or in the jungle had any of them reach Dave talk but just to say great job or is this. Have you not had that opportunity at really. The only one was was the bluebeard guy bluebeard dancer. And when i first arrived at the club set they were still filming with the principal actors. So david was still there. That was when i met him And then all the dancers were still fair. And but my first costume was bluebeard. Because you know that was the one that's the longest to put on so So when i arrived at a set. That's what i was wearing. And as i think we bonded a little bit. I hey go beard. And there's there's a picture somewhere of james gone with his arm around. Both of us wish anywhere. That picture was our wish. That if james hasn't he would post it is it's really cool. It's speaking of really talented people. James gunn certainly fits that. Mold boise boise and the way the movies shot. Lean like it's just it's so clever. It's got his fingerprints all over it. It's just awesome to watch. And like i said i'm a writer too so i am just blown away by is mind. I'm in his is writing his ability to have all of the details of the stories. I mean this film the characters like rat catcher in pocono man. There's such beautiful people that you fall in love with them in the end you're really feel what they're feeling So it's not just you know bad.

"Like ut go anywhere. You want in the state of georgia. So i stayed where i was and then i went to wake forest. I was blessed. I i got a full assistant shipped to go. There and i even got a grant to study in stratford. One summer. I so that was wake. Forest was when i discovered my love of shakespeare. Yeah it's amazing. I wonder if there's people in there watching you know we'll just we'll just take the you have a very impressive philosophy but we'll just take the suicide squad like i wonder if what people are watching it if they if they realized there watching shakespearean trained actor. Because it's it's i think about that one of my favorite shows all time as banshee. And there's a shakespearean his name's matthew rock i think is it's already. He's a shakespearean actor on that show. Any probably had the least amount words which is ironic. And i kind of get that same feeling with you shakespearean. Trae doctor was difficult because to me. I don't think i could ever be an actor. I couldn't i couldn't memorize lines. And i'll tell you what i couldn't do. I definitely couldn't do theater on a bet. And i definitely could not be shakespearean trenches. There's too much dialogue. The dialogue is difficult to so. What are the challenges and feel like being shakespearean trained actor has helped you throughout your career. I think it it. It helps your career but it helps just generally in life. It's one of the things that i find most interesting. Shakespeare is that the stories are universal. The language may be structured a little different than what we're accustomed to but the feelings the the interactions the emotion. The poetry it's it. It's all very universal and can be applicable to where we are right now and what's on in the world and i think it just kind of helps connect the dots to life in general. Just one of those little things like an accessory the el okay. Now like this in reading your website which i love going through on. It mentioned that early on you know you try to neutralize is a good word. I think you put your southern accent. Did you feel like people are going to judge you. Lynn based on the southern drawl. Based on you know what with you there were there would focus more on the accent and not the words themselves. Feel like there's a little bit of a judgment factor and people. Here's somebody that. Was that the thought that that's going through your head. Why why explain that. Well you have to remember. And i'm a little bit older probably than you but remember holly hunter. Holly hunter is a brilliant actress and she has a very strong southern dialect and she was when she was in her heyday in the eighties nineties. she was given a lot of grief about it. People didn't like her accent. And i think it was very telling when she won her oscar of our saas owner. She's one one but her first oscar for the piano. She never upward character was mute. That's right that's right. Yeah an-and chest. That was one of the things that was like okay. If they're not judging her at their judging your simply on the base for acting in not her speaking all of a sudden everyone loves her. She's everyone's darling but it was a lot of criticism especially things changed but forty years ago thirty years ago very common belief. That southerners were stupid. Exact- that's exactly what what i thought and i. I think we're close. Because i mean i think you're mentioning a lot of the things. I'm close to fifty. So i remember a lot of the things you're talking about and i do believe that like their southern accent in a movie. You're playing the gas station attendant. You're playing this this sheriff. That didn't know any difference. Yeah i absolutely get that and people are gonna completely unfairly absolutely but things have changed Thanks a lot more inclusive now. So southerners women people color. All of these different characteristics that used to be pushed down are now being more widely accepted this coming to realize said we are all not really well said so. Let me ask you speaking of movies and actors and this is a question you've gotten. I'm sure before. But is there a specific movie or actor or actors or movies that have really influenced your passion and love for acting. Because i always feel like nobody just decide. You know what. I want to be an actor. I always feel like it's fueled by something or somebody for you. What was that one. Oh my gosh there are so many. I can't even begin to start I am inspired by actors. Who there are some people when you will need perform you can just tell by the look in their eyes by the micro expressions on their face that they truly believe what they are saying that they're not putting on character and bad those of the actors that inspiring me not a stomach. The first one that popped into my head just now was judi dench. I don't know how moore you are with her will. Of course she she is. Brilliant in fact An shoot a lot of the the actress that i'm about to name all british in. They all did shakespeare. What that's about Was because i when i was at wake. My professor was british and he did did specialized shakespeare. But there's a different type of acting style from that had noticed from american acting teachers and has not to put. Lena of one is better than the other. But i did notice that british acting styles tend to put more of their focus. In emphasis on the ensemble work that the whole telling the story and the relationships between these people intermingling are the most important and their intensity attentive tendency especially with untrained american actors to let everything be about me. I'm the star. I wanted to be about me. I want to you know. Mike parts the most important and while an individual can think that they're part is The most important of that helps them. Lifted to what it needs to be. I'm just going to wait esoteric on no stuff absolutely no Just tends to be more megyn raided rather than us generated. And that's one of the things. I like a so much about. My training in and and theater is said young. Samba to me is the most important thing. So i don't mind playing flunky or a one line or no line part it is never bothered matches. Wanted to do the best. At what i to be the best that i could be while doing. And you're so right is i. Don't wanna see movie that somebody doesn't like that people aren't all in on the philosophy of us right if people are in on me. That's not really a movie. I wanna see a movie that people are gonna wanna see in general right people are gonna want everybody's invested it right that makes sense to me. Yeah and the the total story. That's the most important thing telling the story in that world. And i have to believe for you. Lynn a in on the piggyback. The other questions just as she was at the scene in wild oats with jessica lang and shirley maclaine was was pretty was still bring as far as well. I mean this is. This is pretty impressive. I'm i'm i'm going to see some.

"Now my guest and says, episode is Tim Ashe who is an acknowledged authority on evolutionary psychology and digital marketing. He's a sought after international keynote speaker and the best selling author of two books I one landing page optimization, and more. Recently unleash your primal brain actually just listened to recently on audible. Fantastic. We're going to dig into that one for sure Tim has been mentioned by Forbes as a top ten online marketing expert and by Entrepreneur magazine as an online market influence to watch. For nineteen years he was a CO founder and the CEO of site tuners, tuners dot, com and their digital marketing and optimization agency. Tim has helped create over one point, two, billion dollars in value for some amazing companies that I know. We all know Google expedia harmony facebook and American Express and cannon and Nestle there's massive list year semantic new to it and humanity Siemens anyways in countless direct to consumer brands. So exciting to have Tim today busy schedule. But please join me conversation with Tim Today. So. Tim Welcome ECOMMERCE battling. A Ha-. Very. Happy Veer Steve. So you've had quite an eventful career I might add keynote speaking around the world are writing bestselling books year you run international conferences, I guess pre cove in our doing some virtual events. So tell me a little bit about best can your entrepreneurial journey so far? Sure. Well, I've worked in a variety of high tech companies when I started university at UC San Diego my undergraduate majors were in computer engineering and cognitive science, and then I stayed there for graduate school and what would neural networks or what would now be called deep learning or machine learning or A. And this was early days We didn't have the big data sets that we do now with the Internet. So I switched Internet marketing and started my first marketing agency back in the early DOT com days and Never, let go of the Tiger's tail and twenty five years. Later I decided you know running an agency wasn't my highest and best use on the planet. So I decided to focus on what I really enjoy, which is the thought leadership in the form of as you mentioned, keynote speaking and writing my latest book and spreading knowledge out to people as opposed to working on client accounts. Right? and. So I did mention a little tiny bit of top of the show but you know you've worked with a lot of some really great ecommerce brands some of the largest brands I might add like what are some mistakes that you see kind of consistently some of these e commerce brands are making today will if we restrict people have different definitions of ECOMMERCE, I, just WanNa start there for some ecommerce anywhere. Any website that has as A. Checkout anything where you sell items directly and for others, it's more restrictive and I'd say it's a e commerce catalog and that's I think a more standard definition. If you also use a lots of different items, you have a homepage category pages, search results, pages, and product, and so on. It's not a website where there are two or three things for sale in those early incidental. Would I don't know is that a fair definition or how would you agree with that? Totally would agree with that yes. So In the case of large catalogs, I'd say the common mistakes that we I've seen in my careers one gratuitous use of motion and wasted real estate on the homepage in the form of giant sliders everybody seems to have those Sh. Yeah. That's a big known my book I talk about I have a whole e-commerce best practices section in my landing page optimization book and I devoted a page to why sliders. An evil that should be immediately removed from your site. While you know what part of it I think to is that it doesn't position the brand well, enough I think with having like motion and I think when people have a lot of different slogans, tag lines or kind of looks and things going out other different sections on the site they think they're trying to blast all of their bullets out on this highly sought after a piece of real estate versus maybe having a proper positioning statement or something. One thing that's very important. That's key to why someone should click. Through or why someone shown up on this particular website having one message and one brand image and go further than that I, would say that I'll numerate the reasons why you shouldn't have a slider on your homepage. The one that you mentioned is by far the most important our brains from an evolutionary perspective are designed to notice things moving in are visual field. It kind of has survival value. If you know what I mean here is coming to eat me I need to know what direction and how big is right So. they're they're an interrupt, their the nuclear option in the face of motion graphics won't get looked at and even in the face of graphics, text won't get read. So anything that's graphics or text on your site can't possibly compete with that atomic bomb of a slider on your homepage. And and another reason that really bad is because it's trying to pretend you have more real estate than you really do. So everybody wants a piece of the homepage and lurk. We can add another frame tour slider. Well Great. Thanks. So now have to sit through a longer commercial nobody likes to do that on broadcast TV. There's certainly don't have the attention span to sit through five three seconds sliders to make sure they saw every frame of the crap you're trying to throw them on your home page You don't really an editorial problem. You can't decide what's important. So you're trying to cram it all in there and make everybody happy except your site visitors that are trying to give you money,

"Folks and welcome to the tennis podcast and very special edition of the tennis podcast and back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well.

Big Investment, and then just get consult with your mentor friends or whatever, and get the rate outerwear underwear. And and just add on from there as you get to know discover more. You'll know what to. What to buy and get as you go and what you WANNA blaze orange right. with that. You want some blaze orange right. Actually oddly enough Vermont as one of the few states that does not require blaze orange during hunting season. I'm fortunate enough to have access to about a hundred acres which I'm the only one on. but I still will to and from my stand where chat or something earned from still hunting. Off, tend to wear something orange. But Yeah. It's a great idea. Don't get me wrong. Every everybody should should wear in a lot of hunters are wearing with their required to organize. It's just really safe thing. To Do to be seen in the woods. Like Gwen was saying about what? What, who, Different animals see do they see color? Dear only CNN and of almost. Gray and white format day are colorblind. They could pick up a little blues. In Greens, but they're not gonNA be Cheer Blazer, they just see in. Like I said in craze. Yeah. That's that's that's interesting Nate Lafond WH. Give us your recommendation on that should Vermont go go out hunting where blaze orange for safety. Oh absolutely I think it really depends too on what animal you are. Hunting Turkeys have amazing is. Be in full color. So I would always recommend you know if you're if you're moving and not actively hunting maybe I you know I busted you and and he's run away and you know you're giving go back home to get breakfast you know throw on a vest keep a hat in your pocket whatever the case may be and when you walk back out of the woods Throw that on, you know because you're not really actively Turkey hunting at that point you're not worried about scaring anything but you should always be worried about your safety like Mike said with an animal that maybe can't see color as well or certainly can't see blaze Orange and I certainly recommend that much of it as possible right tape person and safer you are the better you are. Yeah. That's that's for sure speed of which I guess I'll stick with nate on this one other hunters You've got to give each other some room and what's the General Are there any rules there? well. I guess not necessarily a hundred hunter There are some some kind of natick grady specific roles where you know hundred hundred harassment or you can't you can't mess with illegally legally hunting person or legally rackets down at ground blind or tree stand But as far as you know encroachment on another hunter, you know it's just a lot of mutual There's a lot of good spots and a lot of people know the good spots. So you know if you want to get up early and put the work into scouting and and get the get that good spot lockdown, you'll get your tree stand up months in advance and and get your presence in there. Then then good for you. If someone else wants to come in the day before the season and see what they can find you know is there's a mutual respect of of that next person might might just move on and find a better spot You know there's An.

"So for my point of view, it's it's really moving the resources as up stream in the in the health process as possible which in the long term wealth, save us money avoid the kind of expensive. which are really really rough on state budgets, personal finances, and really putting the hurt on business costs. He I want to ask you to him what what does it look like to you for returning the school in the fall is the state striking the right balance between public S-, public safety, public health, and the need to get our kids educations resumed. Well. Let me just start by saying that the the there is no simple solution to how to approach the fall school Calendar I. Have Watch the governor and secretary of Education Struggle with striking that balancing act between you know keeping people safe but also making sure kids don't fall behind educationally and this particular concern for lower income students and students with special needs So I I WANNA commend van for delaying the start date of September eighth the amount of confusion at the local level about how schools were supposed to operate in late August it was just too overwhelming to believe that. It could all get together in such a short period of time. So I think that's the first order businesses commending the governor and secretary for making that call and I think you know what where things are starting to call. That makes a lot of sense having adults back in the school to talk through the practicality of different strategies of. in person and remote learning. getting in touch with the families themselves in the students to check in and see how comfortable people are with the particular options. and then have some measures by which the different educational approaches can proceed you know under what circumstances will people be sent back home under which circumstances will things open up more fully and that it sounds like a modest amount of time just the two additional weeks that have been. Purchased by the decision yesterday but I think that two weeks might make all the difference. So I think it's very, very good move. And in terms of when School finally does commence Do you see that the state OUGHTA BE Issuing directives that apply to districts pretty uniformly around Vermont or do you think that individual school districts should be able to make their own decisions and kind of fashion their own systems for how to operate in the fall? Well I would like to schedule to be as aligned as possible anywhere in the state at a minimum within supervisory ings If you have parents with kids in two different schools, for instance, if they are not on the same. Schedule's roughly it makes household. You know the balancing act for households absolutely excruciating having the schedules more or less aligned. With state basically setting the tone does allow for the resolution of childcare issue and what what people are GonNa do who have to be at work, but whose kids may be in an off day where they're supposed to be learning remotely. Or in need of childcare school care. So in that sense, I think the state has to show the leadership and really try to conform all the district's two one, a rough schedule and and we need to be giving clarity about what the physical space requirements are going to be an how we're GONNA help them pay for it. One of the things we did before leaving for the summer in the legislature was made sure some money was left aside so that if there are extraordinary costs associated with getting kids back safely, we would be able to draw on some of the federal funds which frankly were issued to us. In part for that very reason. One of the long term challenges of the state. Of Vermont, we've heard about it now for for more than a decade and probably will for more than a decade to come. Is the demographics of the state we aging population are are the generation that Folks in their twenties and thirties, and so on seems to be hollowed out for some reason. I'm wondering what you think about the. How to how to address those problems and and some of the problems, economic problems and other problems that stem from the from from that situation. Yeah I mean it's it's been in challenge facing not just Vermont. But rural areas for basically twenty years and just because everyone else is experiencing, it doesn't mean it's not a real problem. It absolutely is You know we've seen attempts to try to alert people to the state with shiny objects. You know sometimes they have good marketing affect that they really don't fundamentally alter the demographic. So for my point of view, we should all step back and make the top priority getting the most out of people who already live here and For years. I've been talking about one of the one of the kind of silent problems we face, which is several thousand kids a year graduating from high schools. They don't go on to further their education at any level and many of them don't actually get into the workforce, and so they're just drifting along and falling through the cracks I believe we need a much more aggressive approach to make sure that we're getting. Those young people, Sorta hardwired and some experience so that the moment they graduate high school whether it's for more education or having job skills, they go out to work that they're ready. You know one of the things I've been talking about in working with some people on some ideas outside the State House is a Youth Service Corps where we take something like Vermont. US Conservation Corps model but go big with it and really make a big bet in young people who already live here so that they can fulfil their potential and especially for kids who don't have families who are able to provide the kind of support and resources that. Can help pave the way for. To about out of time, I WANNA. Thank you very much for joining me this morning to Mashpee. Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor in the August eleventh primary upcoming. And So they they can very much. Thanks. Got To go to a top.

"Is the toll free number four, wd EVI and believe we have Jason on the line from Burlington Good Morning Jason. Hey, thanks for taking my call. Sure Kim I watched the effort last year to get paid family leave passed in Vermont and from the outside and somebody who doesn't follow state politics too much. It kind of looked like the Senate and the house were tripping over each other and couldn't figure out how to work together to pass something that everybody clearly wanted and I think. About I'm looking for a candidate that's going to give us. Leadership. That actually focuses on goals and doesn't get stuck in what looked like a whole lot of politicking. I was kind of disappointed watching how that all unfolded? Can you talk a little bit about what happened there and why we didn't get paid family leave last year when it looked like everybody wanted it. To Ash. Yeah. Sure. Thing. Jason You know it's it's worth. Remembering that in two thousand eighteen. the speaker and I working with leadership and the committees on both sides, the House and the Senate. Did Pass paid family leave bill and the minimum wage bill both of which were vetoed by Governor Scott Twenty eighteen. So in two thousand nineteen, we came back and we thought well, we can't quite do the exact same thing because we know where that landed last time and there's no question we struggled to figure out what the sweet spot was and in the final negotiations, we had three members of the Senate senators, Michael Iraq in Beca balanced and Alison. Clarkson has our negotiating team. They were trying to find the sweet spot on the paid family leave bill in the minimum wage bill and. You know the the the it just didn't come off the pressure at the end of the session There were of both sides who were dissatisfied with the others position and it didn't come off and so the speaker and I right after the session ended we got a regroup said. The moment we come back. We gotta get these things finished. We were like here his wits away and right out of the gates we passed both the paid Leesville and the minimum wage bill on the minimum wage bill did override the governor just barely and on the paid families bill we had marshalled veto proof majority on our side of the house. a couple of people who had we had thought would vote yes. Flipped and voted no and so they missed it by one. So you know in two, thousand, nine, hundred, the end, the session obviously as any leader, you take responsibility for when things don't go your way but two times with pass paid family leave three times I think we have voted for minimum wage and I'm totally confident that in twenty twenty, one paid family leave will become the law of the state. And Are you expecting those a possible another gubernatorial veto twenty, twenty, one I if governor Scott is reelected. Well. It obviously depends on who the governor is and and whether the attitude of governor Scott if he is reelected changes at all you know. There was always time for people to revisit their positions. Governor has said he's not opposed to paid family leave. He did not like the mandatory nature. We of course argued that if it wasn't mandatory, the system would collapse very quickly under its own weight. So the real question is a few of the House members. Who voted no on whether to override the governor Will they get unseated? In their own districts and a few people have competitive primaries largely as a result of that vote and we'll some other people say you know what Kobe has helped explain why this is so critical for people and my earlier opposition is GonNa flip. So I believe either the governor will revisit his position or more likely that last House vote if necessary can be attained either through. The primary process or power persuasion based on the covert experience. and. The A lot of Vermont's rural hospitals were. In hurting and financial shape before the covid crisis hit and wondering what do you think healthcare will look like in should look like in Vermont in twenty. Twenty five. Well I think from the hospital point of view you know it. It's absolutely true that the smallest hospitals in Vermont and we have a number of small hospitals are facing serious financial pressure some of it I won't get into the gory weeds of how Medicare pays more rural areas where there's higher percentage of Medicare people that puts specific strain on them. But I really think you know the idea of some kind of global budgeting so that a small community hospital knows how much money it has to work with on a predictable basis in doesn't have to go out and try to find a profit center so that it can and the year in the black each year the current. Health care. Reform efforts in Vermont. They try to achieve that result by slightly more complicated measure but I think if we can get to a fixed budget with a growth rate that's reasonable for monitors to pay that will put those providers in good standing but I also want to make sure we're not forgetting about everybody from dentists to mental health professionals the organizations that serve people with substance. Abuse. Disorders. independent physicians all. Those. Practices. Face. Similar pressure and in some ways as we come to more appropriately view health from the from the preventative side of things we have to make sure that we don't let the preventive practices fall by the wayside in order to prop up the most you know well resourced hospital..

"For older Vermont and also have children and and pay the bills. proper workforce development with investments in our state colleges and the list goes on. So I think a lot of Vermont's feel that we've failed to take bold action on a number of the key priorities and issues that are going to make Vermont resilient prosperous equitable for the future. And you sort of put an asterisk next to the next to the words broadband and I'm wondering or the word broadband. I'm wondering what is your proposal about broadband and and how are you going to move the needle here given that a lot of the. Vermont, Talk About this for twenty years or so. It's true I. Mean I think it's kind of that perennial issue that comes up and I guess my question is, how is it then and twenty twenty that seventy thousand homes and businesses across Vermont? Still don't have proper access. For Teachers for our parents for students and they've really been on the frontlines of feeling that impact right our when our schools closed in. March. What I know from talking to to teachers, there are a lot of teachers around the state who could not access students at all because of a lack of Internet access, you know one in three children U. Very. where I grew up, still can't get online today and I think if we just took a step back and twenty twenty imagine seventy thousand homes not having access to water or heat or electricity, we would be outraged and I. Think it's time to be outraged in a good way about. Vermont is not having access to the highway. If we think about Internet as a highway at highway telemedicine, a highway to remote work a highway to economic opportunity, and if you have a business, you need internet online learning basic information about public safety and health during this global pandemic. So I wanNA, just recognize the challenge, and then in terms of how we saw that I think we need to. Work really closely with our congressional delegation. To make sure we can absorb any federal funding that can come this way to help address. The broadband needs here in Vermont and then work with our Communication Union districts. We have a lot of experience in this state about how to deploy broadband and to begin doing it right now, and it will be complicated and it will take time. But if we don't start and we've had a big delay I think that's part of the problem there this hasn't been a priority we've left a lot of Vermont, is behind so we need some new leadership and we need to. Begin to get it done immediately. I also be expensive. How do you pay for it? Well, that's that's where I think federal funding is extremely important but broadband is one of the greatest economic opportunities for Vermont. If we talk about our demographic challenges for just a second, we have more deaths than births in a majority of Vermont counties, and that's that's bleak in Orange County. We have more lights off than lights on there's no way generation generations going to want to move to. Incredible Orange County or Washington county are places where we have great communities. If there's no way in twenty twenty, you can get online. So I think it's The funds that come from our federal delegation we need to also look at our own budget and figure out how we align our budget with our greatest needs and make this investment where we will see a massive return on investment. There's no question about it. One thing that that has has occurred to. So folk says, as especially is schools went online. In March for the balance of the just completed academic year, and now we're looking forward to maybe some some form of hybrid education or something in in school districts in the fall and I wanNA talk a little bit more about that but you know. State Law, says that every Vermont Child has a has the right to a publicly funded education if broadband is going to be a really integral tool to that public education or any education Are we gonNA end up declaring that everyone has a right to broadband access. Incredibly important point I I. think There's a lot of merit to your question. The fact is right now. I think intended counterparts of the Burlington Area School district. Students are moving to and parents are preparing for a fall where there will be two days in the classroom in three days online. You to tell school districts in Orange County or Washington county or the northeast kingdom down in southern Vermont. But that was the path forward. There's no way that would work I mean it I can't emphasize this issue enough. You know we were just down in in Randolph doing a press conference with teachers from Brookefield and one teacher three fourths of for students could not get online. There's there's no ability to access them so. I, think there is a direct link between access to education in a global pandemic as we're experiencing right now and let's recognize this is. The a unique situation we haven't experienced anything like this in over a century, but if we're going to be resilient and prepared for the future, this is one thing that we can focus on now and it's just about basic equity. For Rural Vermont you know in addition to education as I said, it's also businesses and economic development. It's a it's uneconomic. At least we're told this it's uneconomic for eighty att or comcast or other Big Internet service provider to To roll fiber down these rural roads where you might only have to to customers in the course of a mile of dirt road. and it's probably on economic if you really look at it in these terms to send a school bus down the same road to pick up one or two kids we do. The ladder should should the state of Rhode Start to consider rural broadband more of a public sector activities than the private sector activity. Yes. I think as I mentioned earlier if we started to if we thought about broadband in the same way that we think about water electricity as a utility and there was a decision I think back in the eighties federally to not think about Internet access that way but I think there's an area where we have to ship our minds that we have to shift it as a public good as a public utility, and then the funding and the framework chef. So I I think that it's important to recognize in this moment where we're seeing the divergence of so many different issues, right? National Divisiveness, massive economic upheaval. global pandemic, a health crisis we have to think about some of our basic needs as a state, a new healthcare childcare paid family medical leave. So our parents can get back to work. Our families can get back to work and care for a loved ones access to higher education workforce development. I'd love to talk more about food food security and food resilience supporting our farmers. We have an opportunity to think about things in new.

"We've had a week off and. Has Gone to get his haircuts. Catherine's been hanging out with Magnus. The dog I've been stressing about my football team west from job in as they try to throw promotion away. That may or may not mean something to you, and we will be back with tennis podcasts over the coming weeks and months altogether chat in as we normally do, but today we have a very very special interview with the French Open champion of nineteen eighty-three, the world's number three as his highest ranking, but that really doesn't tell the story of Yannick who is unquestionably the coolest man I have ever met Davis Cup winning captain. Three Times Fed Cup winning captain as well and had a hugely successful music career. Once his tennis stays had come to an end I had the chance to meet him just over twenty years ago when he joined the champions tour. Tour retired players who just traveled to will played matches against one another him and John McEnroe and beyond bog, and all these greats of the game, and just got to know him a little bit at that time. He was always suggest to me. I haven't seen him for about ten years, but I managed to get in contact with him through a couple of other people when we were researching and trying to set up interviews full at tennis, relived series, particularly the French Open, so that we could tell that story, and you'll have heard an excerpt perhaps of this interview when we covered his run to that nineteen, eighty three French Open title, but the entire interview. It's just joy, and it will improve your mood, and if you do enjoy the into you tell your friends family, let your social media, and what's that group's now about it because it will just leave them happier than when they started listening to. It has Yannick Noah. I'd like to go right back to the beginning of your of your career, and even before your career and the reason for your career and. I believe a meeting with Arthur Ashe. Yep Absolutely. Our used to leave the group in Cameroon, Africa and We were I was playing detail club tennis was. Not, very, big in Cameroon in the whole country, back nine court, so to play tennis was very privilege radio privilege so. so we used to go to the club at night, but at that time my parents couldn't afford a racket in one day. When I heard that? Some Americans were coming to the club saw. Americans you know so. So Marty Riessen Charlie Pasarell, Tom, ochre, and Arthur Ashe where doing tour in Africa. And they happen to play one day my club. During the clinic they decide. They played with the kids. And I played with Sir and Liked what he saw. I was slim press. You know he was my heroes. At the end of the clinic gave me a racket is racket. Head competition that worth like. Probably Probably what my parents would making every month. and it was you know it was like a dream for me to meeting. Dr Racket Sonya poster. Saying To Yannick I hope I'll see one that. So that was very funny. But the next thing that happened is after this story went to the French Open and he talked to shut. It was the president of the Federation. I told him that he was a little kid was playing. Or was in French. Speaking. Country and And I I. The scholarship came to friends because of author I played in niece for few years. And? The first time I played in Wimbledon That was nine years after we met was in Wimbledon because as for wild card. That was accepted and we play doubles on center court. So that was a beautiful story, so yes, the so mean Africa. And he was a big part of my story. Because and after that you know. For some reason, he was always like you know. Not Too far helping me when I was younger growing up, and then you know played with him at Wimbledon, the first tournament. Back in the days. It was called Super Seris. I was playing Richmond Virginia where he was born. And that was the first tournament I one. Super Series and As I was you know going through the tournament semifinal quarterfinals? Semifinals Playing Roscoe Tanner and these gentlemen comes into locker room sold demand. It comes. It goes Yanic if you win. Arthur is coming tomorrow SEO really worrisome. Is Dad.

That kind of gives me the reaction. What? What do you make of your name being on that kind of list? No, it's I mean, as you mention those names are just unbelievable to even be in the same conversation as them and what they did for at advocacy and also just You know, in terms of myself, I got greeted with Ah, warm reception, and a lot of those people did it. A lot of those people had to go from trials and tribulations and and setbacks to make a make a major difference. So I tip my hat to them. And the Arthur Ashe Award means I mean so much, So I'm incredibly humbled by hope that people will continue to pay forward and share their stories because, in my case that is the same. Wasn't for tomorrow. Rose and I went, I wouldn't be sitting here today. And you You said you shared your story. And now people see you as an advocate. I think people see you as well. He seems to be doing well. But is this still is this constant work and even maybe goes for, say, a constant struggle and working on your mental health. How it completely is, and it's something that I've come to terms with that I'm never going to get rid of it. But I can change my relationship with that, Whether it be, you know, anxiety and something that just lives within the pit of my stomach or, you know, depression. When I'm when I'm having bounced Dad or I'm starting to go dark. I feel like my mind's playing tricks on me. But that's also finding different ways, too. You know, combat it and push it back and make it seem farther away. So that's that's been a goal of mine really since 2018 when I not only had a lot going on in my life and a really tough time, but also You know, just continue to be an advocate and sharing my story and it's you know, advocacy, education grant making in research. That's what we've been focusing on at our fun when we're trying to really be sickness, eyes everything around. Anxiety and depression because one way or another, you know somebody's dealing with mental health problems. And you you mentioned that your fun The Kevin Love Foundation. I think 500,000 to blaze mental health efforts, I guess. What are you hoping money like that A donation like that can go towards and I guess the wider goal of the foundation in the first place. Well, I think just, you know, it's diagnosing, preventing treating and then you know, research and de stigmatizing as I mentioned, so we have to continue to have these tough conversations and, you know, know that everybody is truly going through something and that's you know, at the fun. We're focusing on both physical and emotional well being. So it's tze not only the mind, but it's the body as well as I seen people with. Really chronic inflammation or problems throughout their body, killing their brains as well. So on and I think through through basketball in sports, it's been such a great teacher for me, and it's had such a commonality for me as well that I've been able to learn and have shit shared experiences with teammates or otherwise. People away from the court that's allowed me to really listen. Learn. Allow myself to be more empathetic and have, you know really a growth mindset during this time and all of that on a great way to offset the anxiety, the Depression. You know, anything is just being able to give back. It's been really cool. I didn't think I'd ever be sitting here today trying to have an impact. And talking about the Arthur Ashe Award, but I think it just brings such a great light, too, especially coming out of this time. With open 19 and all the social injustice. There's such a You know, people are gonna be so susceptible to changes hopefully, in a very, very positive way, Okay, but I'm used to seeing you around this time of year for the MBA finals. Of course, that's not happening this year. Don't don't know you well, but I've watched your story and what's happening what you've been doing from afar? And I can say I'm proud of you, man. It's really been somethingto watch. So congratulations, Kevin Hope to see you out there at an arena at some point sooner or later. All right, you take care, brother. Makes you appreciate. All right.

"Well I'm the toughest on. Russia's because of sanctions kept in place. At, the same time we see. Like calling it. Never went to. My knowledge is ever open criticized? Ladder though criticized. Any other world leader. Yeah it! It is a Truly remarkable record really when you look at it, are there. I mean if you were a defender President trump. Could you point at things that has he has done? A. The Russia wooden like that might offset some of the items on the list. You just recited. Well? Certainly you know. The Russians would like us to roll back the sanctions that were put in place by the by laws President Volley during the hacking period of time. He certainly pointed that certainly they would point at the fact that the president. Pull out of the IMF treaty and certainly we see, and the president seemed to be dragging speed right now on renegotiating the new star Trek. All those might be things that supporters of president trump might point out of him being being tough on the Russians. But surely this pick your case as well I mean the killing of American soldiers and paying bounties do so, but seem to be totally agree GIS and something that the commander in chief and the chief executive. United States twenty to safeguard Americans deployed abroad and defense with the nation would take pretty seriously. Yeah all right well Jeff mccaslin is CBS News I. Really Appreciate Your joining me this morning. US shed some. Important late on this topic and I I think. Think. We've got a few minutes here before our next guest I'm going to open the phone lines and Aska listeners. If you haven't thoughts, you would like to share with us any. Questions or comments, etc to four, one, seven, seven, seven is the local number in Waterbury toll, free number, one, eight, seven, seven to nine, one, eight, two, five five, and we certainly do appreciate listener. Participation here rather striking report and interesting analysis just then from Jeff mccaslin of CBS News about this question of the Russians allegedly Offering bounties money for Afghan Taliban members and members of tell Taliban affiliated groups. You kill an American soldier. We will pay money for the bounty on that and I You know I think He described that idea as agreed. I think that's a good word for it. and then the question always is. What does the US do in response? What does the US know about this president? Trump is saying and he said in a tweet that he did not know he was not briefed. He was not briefed on this back in the earlier spring or winter. When when the US intelligence was first learning of it that raises some really troubling questions in my mind about I mean. Wouldn't you think that a president would wanna be briefed on issues like that and you? Wouldn't. You think that the anybody who was working in US intelligence and was trying to advise the president of of what's going on in the world, and so on that would be on the list. One would think that if another country is offering bounties on your soldiers that were deployed overseas. That is really serious thing and It is frankly. If the president did not. Hear about this timely than. That's that's that's shocking. The president is lying and I. Actually did know about this, but didn't want to do anything That Jeff mccaslin, just just let it read a long list of recited I guess a long list of president trump's behavior that seem to be quite favorable to Russia and. you know we can all speculate as to why this president would be particularly sympathetic to Russia, and the regime of Vladimir, Putin should. We can do that until the cows come home, but I don't know. Exactly you know whether any of that. Stuff is really proved because the the whole allegation about the alleged Russian collusion in the US election of two thousand sixteen of course, never was. I would say that story never concluded because Robert Mueller the special prosecutor. Was not able to really. Dig In and actors and the prosecutor, he had his hands tied by various strictures on investigating president. Send and so there were just a a long series of. Of Punch pulling, shall we say anyway? Let's bring in Rama from williamstown on the line good. MORNING RAMA! Morning I. Sense of things I get from reading variety of books about different authoritarian figures throughout history. One of the hallmarks of an of authoritarians administration is that the underlines move in a direction that they know the authoritarian will approve. And Day in other words, they they. This is why you don't see written orders from Hitler for instance to murder tens of millions of Jews, and now he he never had to actually say do it. All he had to do was come close and saying that wouldn't be a bad thing and other people knew what he wanted to do in. That could happen. And this is how authoritarians work through their government, so I say that because. It wouldn't. Me If if either one of these things is true one, it was in his briefings, but because of the way that he only likes to hear certain things that are really easy to digest. He never saw. Nobody pushed it in front of his eyeballs because they knew that he really didn't give a crap about that one way or another he was, he was just you know in. Working conferred towards Putin and this time, or the other is. They didn't include it in the daily briefing, simply because they knew that he wouldn't give a crap, one way or the other, and why waste there time and energies. Pushing an issue. He really doesn't care about I honestly don't think this is one of the rare instances. I don't think trump is lying. I. Don't think trump was aware of it and I don't think he was aware of it, not because others didn't try to give them the opportunity to become aware, but because he doesn't care, he honestly doesn't care about anything beyond his orange skin period. I mean this guy he he throw his daughter. His son says wife. You throw anybody under the bus. He doesn't care about anybody but himself. He is a classic narcissist. It begins in. It ends with him, so I wouldn't be surprised. If for once finally he's telling the truth and saying well. I didn't know about this. Well I I I can't really make a judgment. There Rama. I hear what you're. Judgment is and that's perfectly fine. I I don't know whether president trump. Knew about it or not I. I guess one. Question now that he does know about it. So now, what does he do the you know the the the knowledge. That cat is out of the bag. The the fact that the underlying facts of the matter those are out of the bag. Everything's on the table so now. What well actually now? What is the GOP controlled Senate says okay. Let's go back to the impeachment thing because it's time for this guy to go. He doesn't care he either I. Mean listen either I'm wrong. And he knew about it, and he's lying about that or he's on. He didn't know about it. Be Because of the reasons I gave because he shouldn't have known about it. He should have known about it and he was probably given the opportunity to know. Know about it for freely chose to not too because that sort of thing is an important, and it's time for the Congress and the US give GOP controlled Senate to step forward and say listen. This guy has got to go. He is a bonafide danger to the United States of America and the world and for Mont and our local communities, and that that's would should be the next step I. I don't want trump taking anymore steps. He's just an outright danger to everything he gets around. Or Rama, thank you for the call. I appreciate it and Let's talk soon. folks. What do you think? Is it time for the president to go..

"This one is hit every single person in this state so. My my hope is that we find ways to collectively reinvigorate are kind of positive attitude about from future something that the legislature and the governor one of the one positive that we've been working well together every step of the way but we're going to need to be very. Focused on continuing to make sure people see the light at the end of the tunnel. When right now I, it's hard to see yourself. Yeah. That's the hard thing I mean even when you talk about tropical storm Irene. There was a case of this thing hit on one day. I was a Sunday. Eric Hall and and then Monday and Tuesday were absolutely gorgeous. Weather in Vermont and. and. I think folks saw that. Yeah, we got wacked. A lot of our roads and bridges are gone and and We got a huge mess to clean up and a lot of our towns, but. And it's GonNa be a lot of hard work, but we. We sort of understand at that point that you know this is what happened. And now we gotta clean up and that's the project and. And so whereas with the Kobe nineteen I think there's just so much uncertainty about whether This thing's to get worse. Sweater is GonNa finally fade whether there's going to be a vaccine on scene anytime soon. And and on and on I, mean the questions are just. We, don't have we don't have. A real road map to this thing at all. Whereas natural disasters or you know, unfortunately do happen, but. People tend to you know they know. How goes they the they go out of the game. They make repairs to stuff and the clean up stuff and they and they get back to life as soon as they can. This one is. This is a different animal here and. One other one of the other pieces which will be an interesting moment is at the end of July. We are going to see many thousands of monitors lose the enhanced unemployment benefit from the federal government. So. While many have had their income relatively stable as a result of those additional payments. When those go back down. We're GONNA. See many thousands of the monitors have reduced from what they had been making prior to Kogo. And that's GonNa send shockwaves through the ranks of the unemployed and. I think. We're trying to figure out how to anticipate that moment. because people are People's financial needs are going to grow vary considerably, and it's all going to happen on the same day. You're talking there about the six hundred federal bump as it's called. For anybody collecting unemployment they are. Eligible for this right right now. Yeah, if you're everybody from people who qualify for normal unemployment, we're getting whenever they eligible for six hundred bucks and people who might be eligible only for one dollar. A week and unemployment are also getting six hundred bucks so. Setting aside whether this was an artfully created program, it has definitely put a lot of cash a lot of people's pockets. WHO needed badly but that expires on a specific day, July, at the end of the month, and when that happens, it's going to suck a lot of income out of the state of Vermont and if the jobs aren't there for people to return to. It's GONNA create another. Yet another challenge for the state to face on top of all the others. One of the criticisms. I've heard of that of that federal bump. Is that it actually? For folks who Let's say you were making five hundred dollars a week or something in regular jobs before they went out on employment Now they get. Let's say I don't know you know three eighty or something from state unemployment on the based on that would be the normal payment if they lose that hundred autoweek job, but then is six hundred dollars bonus on top of that and all of a sudden. You know their income. More than doubled. In a lot of employers are are complaining that that's that is created when they want to hire people, it's created a big or bring people back to work. It's created a big disincentive for people. I heard about one employer over the weekend. WHO said he's he's going to wait until August to reopen. because. You know I mean get kind of painted either later darker whatever but I mean on one hand. He said you'll have trouble getting people back before August and the other aspect of it, is he just wanted wanted to help as his workers by allowing them to collect some extra money while it's coming in and. So. I'm just wondering. You you raise the question about whether this has been artfully crafted. should have been done differently. Well, I think simple solution would have been to cut checks to every single working American to get them through this, and that's what European countries did. They basically paid people to stay home. They, said to all businesses and their employees. The government is ordering you to lose all of your income and revenue, so the government is going to pay the difference that way you don't find yourself with all of these eccentric policies that create inequities and you know. The business owner you just described I mean think about the awful choices faced there. If they try to bring everyone back, they're not sure they're even gonNA, have any business then doom issue of the moment. They call an employee back. By law, the employee has to say yes. Otherwise they lose their unemployed. But now you've. Now, you've put the employer in the position of being the. Unemployment police which. In a state that has a desperate need for more workers. Put I mean. That's a very very difficult spot. Put the business owner in so yes, government federal government like everything it touches made a mess and ideally would have just cut simple checks in a fair amount. Send to everybody to help them get through these hard times, but instead they did what they always do which is. you know. Created a not in West states to untie it. Yeah that that's. Just bizarre kind of A. Kind of an outcome here. Now the other hand. Some folks who are who are very happy to get this six hundred bucks a week. Wish. It would continue, do you? You heard any talk of that or is it? Is that pretty much everybody acknowledging this is going to go away? Well the federal government, I mean the biggest challenge we face is that Congress has basically taken Taken a vacation to do what they like to do. Which is campaign for reelection? DILEMMA VERMONT FACES AS WE'RE. GonNa come back because we have to pass a full year budget. And all the work we're GONNA. Do is GonNa be in advance of knowing whether the federal government gets its act together and provides more support, so we're GONNA. Be Flying Rather blindly when we come back in late August early September. But, but we have no alternative because we need to have a budget passed. Who now government to continue to operate? So while there's while you know we all hope. The federal government will either provide extended benefits or a major infusion of states. Vermont is not the only state going through. Fifty? That's all facing terrible situation we can. We just cannot count on the federal government. This is a time for. PEOP- people to reflect on all the what they see as political fights in Congress between NC, Pelosi Mitch McConnell Well Nancy Pelosi.

That happened a sixteen year old. Kyle gears door. He goes by the nickname Boga but the recruiting process was a bit different gears. Off wasn't out on a field field joe he was in his parents house in Pottstown Pennsylvania sitting in front of his computer playing the video game Gabe fortnight streaming his games almost daily for Amazon's twitch a website for gamers and. That's where a scout for an eastwards team called the sentinel saw in play. He signed a one year contract with the Sentinel's back in March and that paid off for gear store and the sentinels almost immediately. Yup Right here. This was in July at the Arthur. Ashe Stadium in flushing New York. That's the same stadium where tennis is players compete in the. US Open gear stuff. was there on the field for the first fortnight World Cup and it was a spectacle spread of players across the screen. There's your talk ten on the left side. The top players in the world sat on the field behind computer monitors side by side playing against each other in the virtual game which was is then projected onto multiple matrons for thousands of fans and stands bogus parents in the audience of course as well cheering him on and they weren't the only ones fortnight has about two hundred fifty million registered users and more than a million of them or streaming the World Cup Competition Jim Champion and the prize. Money was worth a lot. The three million dollars of that gears dorm took home about two point. Four million the sentinels got to keep the rest according to people familiar with the matter but even so boga and other eastport competitors like him are living. The teenage dream getting paid to play video games epic the company that makes fortnight. Isn't the only game in town. activision blizzard and take two interactive software have launched professional professional leagues around their games. Electronic Arts has a fee e World Cup a video game version of the soccer World Cup with thirty two players competing in multiple apple rounds until one country player comes out on top revenue from EA. Sports is expected to climb around twenty six percent this year to reach about one point. Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that?
