Baylor Or Houston, Who Looked Better?
"Toss up. Who looked more impressive last night or baylor baylor to me houston had a big lead and they let it slip away and they won the game so good for them but baylor looks better and better to me every game that they play date. They were sat down for about three weeks. I think they missed on corona virus protocols and they lost a game maybe their second game back against kansas but now that they play with regularity they just looked better all the time to me. There veterans they're juniors and seniors. They're composed they can take you off the dribble. They can win games. And i think we're going to get to the point. Knock on houston where we end up with the one in the two and the three team from all year long right and that is the right to have that could happen. I don't i don't care about that. Like upsets in my tournament. But i'm going to say tony. You have the same answer. That i mean baylor you talk about guard play and the tournament that you and i do appreciate guards dominate tournament. They got their deepen guard play. I mean smart tough athletic gar play they come at you and waves sort of like the old houston cougars. You know guy. V lewis is houston teams and yes they had a king but they also had just wings in guards who just smothered you. That's what baylor looks like that. That toni ballard did struggle when they first came back from the corona protocol. Absence but each game subsequently. They've gotten better. I agree with

NCAA Tournament East Preview
"Welcome to coincide with greenberg dockage in the south bracket where the number one seed is. Bela number two seaters iowa states. Let's get right into it. John gallagher wild and i like john gallagher. Head coach at hartford neighborhood. Man the neighborhood who here west hartford the neighborhood as the ultimate philly guy. John gallagher is the ultimate dilly guy. I've already got the text from. I've spoken is tipped off banquet a year ago. The dude is certifiably insane in a good way. What he no one is going to enjoy the ncaa tournament more than it. So as soon as they won they immediately went to indianapolis and starts to quarantine and have experienced john. Enjoy it. we're gonna say nice things about you. You're a good guy. And ballard dance so nokes no trepidation about baylor's performance against oklahoma state. Oklahoma states really good people are losing their mind. What at at baylor games. They're playing in the big twelve. They're not planning west coast conference. You're playing in the big twelve. You're planning against other teams that have good players. You're gonna lose games all right. The next game is interesting. Opening round games wisconsin. Why i think he's just not right against north carolina who depending on the day is not right. I mean real simple carolina. You can take care of the ball. Are you gonna make your shot if you take care of the ball and at least get shots up. Then you have an advantage. Except that as we know wisconsin wisconsin's analytics over. Like if you just look at their analytics you would think they'd win every game. They don't give up second shots that will turn it over. They get pretty good shots but they don't play winning basketball. I know that sounds weird. But there's something not right. I think carolina find a way to win that game except the carolina. Jecklin hide reminds of this game. Would you like i like carolina. And this and i look whatever's happened to nate rivers whether it's kobe whether it's whatever it just hasn't been good. I expected more out of him. They don't run their stop nearly as well as they didn't pass they rely too much on one. And frankly they're not a one on one team. And you know what would those big garrison brooks bay. Come and all and bacon's and everybody else you can get into wisconsin. Guards make them drivers into traffic. I think this is a pretty good match up for north carolina. I just think they're better. And i think they're going to win the basketball game and i think they're going to win it fairly big. So if you wanna bet on a game this probably going to have tyke spread. That's gonna move it out a little bit. I think this is the game i think. North carolina wins by double digits. All right to winter is the sexy upset. eco nova plant without conquests. Be justin moore play the other day but wasn't good. They started the set a little bit. You know this is. This is a winter key. May play really fast. I've got a low post lower burns at play him about fifty minutes game. he's really productive. Obviously they got a very good camera. Badran the big six seven kind of point guard because they run the show through a tuck this about. They're extremely aggressive. Pat kelsey really likeable dude. Winter months play fast was gonna try to get into half court who you like. Well i i agree with everything you said. I think winter got a hell of a team. But if this was any other organization other than j j rights organization i would say the winthrop's gonna win the basketball game but you still have robinson hurl. You still have samuels. And if healthy justin moore. You've got three guys. You've got the best three guys on the court. And that always bodes. Well now the point guard situation okay. It is what it is. We all know that point guards at villanova stuff are important. It is the sexy. Pick the five twelve upset all that kind of stuff. But i'm not betting against jay wright and his organisation they just seem to overcome things that need to be overcome when they need to be overcome. I great i agree all right. So now this is an interesting north texas by gurus helmi north texas guards. The crap you absolutely flat can guard you an elite defensive team. They put great pressure notable they then eyeball reversal on play. Two man game with javon Handle it let the point guard and that they are really really good solid defensive team. They turn people over there really aggressive. But you've seen teams like that. Purdue doesn't beat themselves. You pretty has probably i i do. I think this is going to be right down to the wire south because what. I've talked to people today actually. Starting last night couple guys. I was surprised. North texas beat western kentucky. Not because i knew anything about no taxes. But because i saw western kentucky for three games and and they're really good athletic on the wing. Strong tough. I think what you said about the all of the defense bits. Dramatically bad against purdue get up into. They're not the quickest. Get shot team jay nineties really the only one that can i think this is going to be. I'm going to bet against purdue because i think produce offensive analytics put them in the top ten. But nobody's really pressured purdue nobody's really got into them and under wings. Don't take this game for granted. North texas is going to cover whatever the point spread is pretty wins. It the end. Are you got another big time. Texas tech utah state and utah state. Pounds that thing in pain name is cadence a big physical that play a four round. One run actually pretty good motion and so pretty good actions to me. The kid just being an interesting precedent. Don't shoot it as well as they happen to pass but they really defend the top five rebounding They're a very good offensive antiques. Keta against texas tech doesn't have a legitimate big tonight. I mean or cassette said

Just a few days ago, activists came out here to Jefferson Park and started confronting and yelling. It's volunteers with We heart Seattle in the homeless are caught right in the middle of all of this. Andrea Suarez is the founder of this nonprofits who says For the past few weeks, they've been out to several parts like Denny, Dijon and Ballard Commons, cleaning up trash with consent from the homeless at these encampments and have been Trying to get people connected with services and shelters. This is also attracting activists who disagree with their methods, Suarez says. They are being followed to parks and harassed. I think it's schoolyard bullying, and they are treating it like some kind of turf war. If some people early on ran with this notion that I was another one of these white supremacists hate groups that was out there to demonize the homeless community, which was farthest from the truth. All I wanted to do is help pick up trash and interact with people in a meaningful way. He shot to some of these activists, but no one has got back to us. So far.

I texted you right away. And i was like. Oh so of course miss. Mary was a founding member of the iconic american singing group. The supremes she was there at the beginning of the group in the nineteen fifties and was the last original member in the group when it officially disbanded in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven and she went on to a career as a solo performer motivational speaker author and perhaps unsuspecting archivist.

Welcome to dressed. Thank you so much. And i'm glad to be with you. Yeah of this is truly an honor to have you here today. And i have to say i have not been this excited about a book in a very long time. I've i've read a lot of fashion history books and this one is is so beautifully written. It's so beautifully illustrated so many stories so much love and friendship and of course there's so much fashion in this book. It's such a beautiful mosh to your time in the supremes and the clothing. That was part in parcel to that experience. So i'm curious. What inspired you to write this wonderful book. Wow well it was fairly easy. Because i had already written books about the supreme so therefore you know it was one of the things will. My research was not as it didn't take as long because i had so much research from the other books. And you know writing about the supremes and our biography and and talking about how much we had accomplished and our career was a pleasure to actually sit down now and do something not just write about the book but do show pictures and and and the looks and what was behind the singing which was more fashion so it was really a lot of fun. Sort of demonstrating what we did in not just on recording and the music but how we look at how he felt when we were certain count and so was all about the gallons per gallon down to just like we were onto all those years and many of them are in your personal collection cracked. Have i think in the book. There's over twenty four sets of matching onstage on sambas so not just one of the dresses but all three of the dresses. How did you go about comprising this collection. Well First of all we supreme florence ballard diana ross and i would always travel and when we came home from the road we'd have to store the gown and then of course by new gowns or designers with bring us new gowns and some of the old account that we made perhaps worn on television We went to store them. And they accumulated who Throughout all the years right And as you know florence was no longer mcgrew. Diane was no longer in the group. And then we had the seventies supremes And i became sort of like the keeper of of everything and the manager of the trains and all those different things. So i accumulated the gown because of that and whenever anyone would leave As you know a couple of them. Did i ended up with all these counts because no one can take the guy. No one can take the gal with them. You know we the supremes as a group paid for them. And that's how. I ended up with the majority of the gals. Now all other gallons should be in my possession but The reason that i can't tell you how many i have is because many have been not just lost and i won't say stolen you know things have just disappeared. And then some of the places we have them stored you know. I don't i couldn't figure out where everything was stored inside. All these years asked the supreme i have just been Trying to recover those downs that are not in my collection but it really is my collection. Because as i said when i left everything was left to me also should say that even though they were left to me and i had bare instead of three Sometimes i ended up with just one but all three gowns were overset were supposedly with me.

And twenty seventeen the only year carson wentz has looked like a franchise quarterback as soon as frank reich left seemingly soda carson winston ability to lead a team deep into the playoffs or einstein. He got hurt that year but the double digit wins. The colts got a thirty eight year. Old bolo tie wearing interception machine at quarterback who can't wait to get down to i think it's florida's offense coordinated bryce school next year. They know they're going to be in the markets on quarterback they also know their too good to draft one. And they don't trust your koby perset. Free agent marketplace isn't going to be right with starting quarterbacks and philly is going to have to trade carson if they want to move on from they can't cut it so i think frank reich is watching carson wentz struggles and saying to chris ballard and folks in indy guys. I think we can get him for a conditional seventh round pick. They just want to get off the contractor replays. Well so i think frank reich is watching this and saying you know what that could be starting quarterback next year.

Tens of thousands of people rally against Lukashenko in Belarus
"Where Can Belarus President Turn Now? Thousands of people were back on the streets protesting this weekend still angry at what they believe was a rigged presidential election President Lukashenko who claimed as he returned to power with an eighty percent approval rate responded by flying over the protesters wearing riot gear with a rifle slung from his shoulder. Well, drained over is L. Editor of Belarus Anna Leasing at the University of Brain and I'm delighted to say she joins us on the line now Auger a very warm welcome to monocle twenty four. These absolutely bizarre scenes of President Lukashenko yesterday. Well. Yes. I was actually also quite as to see you know him banning public with a gun and also his fifteen year old son campaign him so to say so it's the definitely assigned for me that he he's kind of knocked children confidence in front of the people who through testing by his residence, and it's also not you know not that Jerry. Addict from me because the protest is peaceful, protesters will not trying to receive this residents in the state needs. said the wall spread the information that there was some attempt to seek the? Residency so it's quite an emotional psychological reaction from him. I would say and will. Nobody. that. So it's also very strong sign that there is now readiness of from from the official from the state site for any kind of luck that you know this new to build coordination committee by Dehaan Oscar and she team is is trying to do initiate and I think everybody most notably people. In Belarus itself have been absolutely taken aback by the brutality of the reaction by the the Lauren forces to the protesters and the fact that Alexander Lukashenko was was dressed up in riot gear suggests that he doesn't have anywhere to go other than a violent approach. Yes I would also I would also expects it. You know what targeted repressions and they're ready started last week and they continued this week. So what what would serve now is definitely not base wave of unprecedented repression that we. Saw Three days and nights after the elections but still there are targeted repressions and against. Most active people are also criminal case has been initiated against the newly built coordination committee and people. People are invited to some talks with KGB officials until also people actually also bill will try to strike there actually threatened. By the direction openness of the state owned enterprises that they would lose their jobs and so on. So observe already targeted pressure on people, but this wave is still not to the tide because you know. So what international reaction was so the state drives, you know just show from the one handed, it's not ready for the data from the one hand there is the rest of. You know not not to let this protests spread. Within the country how much do you think that's what the foreign observers of said about what's been happening in Belarus for the last couple of weeks is actually forming any decision made by Alexander Lukashenko at the moment. Well I think that it will quite an important aim has been achieved ready and that we actually we have understood that he's not legitimate within the society right within the boat society and I think also problem was that he really did not understand that. Shortly after the elections or before the elections so and. Actually. I think that the reaction was not is at least that. He and his circles really have the distended. Okay. He doesn't have any majority in society, but it has not led so far to his readiness for dialogue just in the all the way he kind of supports the security structures in internal, Misteri Ministry and actually he even gave you know about three hundred medals to those who are actually responsible of for for this incident violence. So he kinds of stresses that the security two structures military is. Actually the most important pillar his powerful for now for the moment, the Steve Kerr show is joining us now he's policy and advocacy. Directorate. Freedom from torture and author of St Spirit Steve. Welcome. Thanks for joining us. Hey On monocle twenty, four Olga a moment ago mentioned the fact that the secret police is still called the KGB I mean, what does that say about the level of influence at Russia's still has in terms of the way that Belarus's going and whether Russia just going to sit this out. Yes I mean I either it reflects influence of Russia, which is August is certainly, very great or it's just almost bizarre retro element to to better under Lukashenko. He doesn't mind thinking in those terms I think it is going to be. So Russia will certainly be an important factor and but at the same time Mosca really doesn't want to be. Getting, further involved in in a very direct since that's going to be difficult for Russia as well. So I think that Lucas. Is playing a very difficult game. If he was giving small confessions, I think he might have some a little bit more success in some homage to blunt things but so far at least the violence has had absolutely opposite effective people become more and more angry the fear obviously quite rightly the last Sunday was absolutely crucial. I would argue that the US huge threats of on ahead of Sunday hoping that people. Would back off and stay at home and actually it was a big rally than ever. So not particular face off. There's no question that Lukashenko loss what happens next we'll still see I'll steve has suggested that Sunday was a pivotal moment some people waiting for what is described as a tipping point when an event causes things to go one way or the other would you say that Sunday was part of that? Tipping Point. Demon this Sunday last Sunday. To Sunday. The Sunday. Just gone when tens of thousands of people came out onto the streets to set by a threat the first Sunday directly after the elections. Yes. I it just completely I mean people never any. Okay. What we're talking about batteries and Ballard who's says, Chris it's not the first Sunday that actions pulses side will have to admit that it also not to the extent that people actually being tortured eating the prisons will have also. took a beast fag, but it's for the first very time that such vast majority of people. So it with their own is is of their families or friends in stone. So you can imagine how many are nets were the strategy when they're where our seven seven thousand arrests. So it's it's quite a big part of the country said it's really I would agree it had an opposite effect and it's also for the first time that you know this special. GRANITZ or gas or a also rubber bullets on there were actually used against own population. It never existed in the history of Belarus in October election protests, people widget shocked and I think it was a shock from the both sides because the state net expected to such mass protest before also before three weeks before the elections would be solved by. About two to five or even six percent of local population came to to railways with Hannele. It's also unprecedented thing was kind of shock from both sides and of course, people people were also by this eighty percent because nobody really believes that anymore I mean. People also really did not quite believe that before I, would say people heading out some kind of feeling that president steelhead had a majority maybe not eighty percent maybe fifty five, maybe sixty but this feeling was there and this style with completely different. So quiet in Jersey, you know quite a big part even I think I would say the majority of people just didn't believe that he actually has any kind of fifty plus and that was the problem that we still have this eighty percents I think people would just. People were just humiliated by that of course, activate shortly afterwards by this unprecedented wave refreshing stave when we look to the further history of batteries, which is being written right now when considering what sort the former eastern bloc countries of have seen in the last three decades. When regime ends, it's generally quite a peaceful affair actually the deleted. is of removed from office. This is unlikely to happen here. Isn't it? Well, I mean, sometimes it has been an sometimes it hasn't been. So when I was a journalist working for the independent, I was the East Europe during the eighty nine revolutions and also join me the fall of Milosevic Milosevic in Serbia and cover dot and there a number of those leaders were ready to use very significant violence and what I'm fascinated by very moved by what was seeing with the courage. A better as protesters today is to see that they are defined vence in the same ways that work very effectively for example, in East Germany where people were threatened with extraordinary for someone particular day in Leipzig in. October nineteen eighty-nine the fact that so many people came out meant regime which had publicly declared its loyalty to force actually back down in Romania I very much. Hope it weren't turn into remain, but we do already see that there are splits within Belarus at the riot police remain loyal. The moment we've seen a number of police units splits off. We've seen a lot of establishment figures putting off in the same way as also does something happened in in Ukraine and the Orange Revolution, and once you see security forces a different security forces splitting away going like enough already as August said, I mean the eighty percent. Claim was was absurdly insulin and the degree of the virus even Grayson seen before and I think this is really interesting. It might end up in huge volumes but I think Lukashenka would lose very very badly that to happen I think it's a regional issue. How if you like bluntly how crazy you are Milosevic. For example, he survived on one occasion ninety seven by giving some concessions and then re clamping down and people just got tired and went back when you use real violence I think it's really difficult. It was a great book written by Richard couple the Polish off I was written about the Iranian revolution. Charlotte. Charlotte's but very much reflected his own country Poland which forty years ago. This month solidarity kind of a huge opposition movement didn't call itself opposition challenge the regime and unthinkable circumstances laying Brezhnev for the very reactionary Russian leader was still in power. They managed to become successful and he said the moment where people stand in front of eastern threatens violence, the pre curry signing backstops, and instead someone stands there and doesn't back down he said, this is where the revolution begins, and after that in effect is the exact the precipice. If you're to violence, you make people more angry if you start making concessions than people go. We have lost our fear and in a sense the certain moment difficult to prediction events but describable. There is no way back to the regime and it still seems a little bit early to say but I think it's very, very difficult to see how Lukashenko come back from this. If he steps back more gently than, of course, it will be peaceful. The protests have been fun tastic peaceful and very, very consciously so far the extended even cleaning up rubbish because I really vary consciously very civic. Minded. So he might just go off and disappear off to Russia for example, and as it will live happily ever after but he tries to bring out all of the guns. Then I think you know all bets are off but I don't think it was a good ending for him whichever way it goes Steve Crozier and Elga agenda over there. Thank you for joining us on monocle twenty four.

The Evolutionary History Of Penguins Is Far From Black And White
"The image of a penguin might bring to mind an endless march across windswept ice. The reality of penguins is a bit different says Grant Ballard of point blue conservation science was actually see species of Pangolin. Really, love, it's only two species. Many others live in warmer waters. So we're could conceivably dealing with something like minus seven degrees or even colder than out. Then, show, but lobby goes mainland has encountered temperatures that are up around one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. So how'd it penguins evolve with such different lifestyles and new study and the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has some answers we've been able to resolve. Several. Longstanding questions about penguin evolution in particular way penguins originated. Hurry Bowie of UC Berkeley as an author on that study. He says there's been a long debate about where the first penguins evolved was it Antarctica or farther north in New Zealand as others have suggested, well armed with genetic evidence from a species of modern day penguins his team has an answer which turned out to be along the coast of Australia and New Zealand the nearby islands of the South Pacific. They say that happened around twenty two million years ago from there, the penguin served on a circular current at the bottom of the world there is a clockwise current. And so they use this current colonized like. The region Juliana of the Catholic. University. Of Chile is a CO author. She says, eleven million years ago that current revved up and penguins used it to slingshot themselves throughout the Southern Hemisphere. That's right. slingshot. The researchers also observed genetic adaptations. Some penguins picked up along the way like the ability to drink seawater also changes in how some species use oxygen allowing them to dive deep that doesn't mean. Penguins will be quick to adapt to modern day climate change. Here's Valley. Again, this adaptation to being able to occurring freezing cold waters in tropical waters occurred over a period of twenty million years, and this doesn't mean that penguins are going to be able to keep up with oceans warming today. If there is one thing, the paper makes clear. It's that the evolution of penguins for from black and
Did This Secret Tournament Put Players in Danger?
"In July thirty, first the American. Gaming Network was supposed to host the AG call of duty, Indianapolis Land Event is being promoted as one of the biggest amateur caught events out there with a prize pool of seventy five hundred dollars to be clear. This tournament was not a part of Challengers League, which is the official semi Pro League of Kati Sports AG is a third party tournament organizers according to their website runs tournaments for call of duty Ballard and Rainbow Six. Siege now, as you can imagine what the world in the midst of a pandemic having a bunch of sweaty dudes, Patton to a convention hall is not the Best Look. So on July thirty first the day the tournament was supposed to start Aga decided to move the tournament on mine quote after discussions with representatives from activision, we are decided to change the Indianapolis to be online only for health and safety concerns players are advised to. Participate in the tournament from their home location along we apologize for any inconvenience in which this may bring upon players spectators in organizations. We look forward to working with activision for future events and quote this sentiment was repeated on August first by Jeffrey Elliott who according to a website is the CFO of the company, and well, that sounds like the obvious and smart thing to the tournament allegedly continued as land event later, that same day. Basically, what you just saw looks like that land event with a bunch of Sweaty dudes packed into a convention hall exactly what agents said they didn't want to happen on top of that. Another video surfaced that looks like a bunch of people packed new AIRBNB trying to continue playing the tournament online. Gauge cash a CO founder of. Who has a name that belongs in Mortal Kombat. Distance themselves from the event and said that the indy open was to be played online period but according to report from dexterity, there were allegedly agent employees at the event despite saying they had nothing to do with it. People were even alleging that Augean only put that original statement to hide from activision blizzard who are the publishers of duty. The fact that this land event was still taking place. Now, this whole situation caught the attention of dominating Jilin know who's the general manager for the Toronto Ultra a pro call of duty. Team competing in the call of duty league. She replied to a tweet with quote I reported everything to activision blizzard absolutely stupid and I can't believe that they thought they'd get away with it and be bold enough to posted about it and a former event organizer Adam epic. Kella even weighed in calling the situation a disaster I also reached out to cash Elliott and multiple sponsors associated with the tournament cash. told me that the narrative online is full of lies in isn't true but didn't explain why that's the case and Elliott just pointed to a statement that made after all of. This controversy popped off quote in order to preserve the competitive integrity of the online tournament, we have decided to postpone the second day of competition to next Sunday August ninth twenty twenty due to an overwhelming amount of players away from home with the inability to play in a safe environment we feel that this is the best way to ensure that everyone is competing safely and fairly the remainder of the tournament and quote also when I went back to gather more information on the indie open agent has deleted the page from their website now, even if players ignored AG and Cassius statements. that the tournament had been moved online and even if he had nothing to do with this secret land tournament, the question I have is, why did they wait until the day of the event to move it online? It's not like the pandemic caught everybody off guard both the League and the challengers. League moved all of their remaining tournaments online months ago. Why couldn't agm do the same and remember representative of activision reached out again, which according to their statement is why they decided to move the tournament online and that's pretty big red flag because to me what that says is that was fully prepared to host a pretty big land event in the middle of a pretty dangerous public health crisis, and the only reason they didn't is because activision wealth stepped in and told them not to because let's be honest when you plan to host a land event in the middle of a giant global health crisis, you were putting people in danger now, I have no idea. A is going to take disciplinary action against the players who did show up to this secret tournament. Also cash if you remember is a CO founder of Augean re tweeted somebody comparing the multiple worldwide human rights protests with these tournaments implying that if one is allowed to happen, these tournaments should also be allowed to happen and yeah I don't know if that's chief if Augean knowingly. Secret Land. Event, after saying it was going online that's fucked up and they put people in danger and if that's the case I, hope activision blizzard takes action against these guys.
"ballard" Discussed on The Rhino Podcast
"Glenn Ballard Welcome to the Rhino. PODCAST real to be here. It is the twenty-fifth anniversary of jagged little pill, maybe the biggest record of the nineties. Certainly it's in. That rarefied air there aren't that many diamond records out there. This record sold thirty three million copies to date amazing. It's a remarkable fact one that I'm still astonished by especially in. In the way media is now. It'd be hard to do that now. Exactly it was. At a point in time where everything just must have come together for you beautifully, it was so symbiotic. I'm sure. I think if you're patient and work hard every day eventually you get lucky and certainly I feel very very lucky to have been involved with this project without any question. You have to show up every day to collaborate with your destiny. So that's my mantra is. Be Ready to go to work in. Is something good may or may not come out of it. But if you don't go it, nothing will come out of it, so you know yeah. I love that to collaborate with your destiny. I've never heard that before. No loved that that's fantastic. Yeah, they say luck favors the prepared right. Yes. You GotTa Show Up, you know. Yeah, yeah exactly well, we will absolutely get into the meat and potatoes of that record, but it's fresh on my mind because I, just watched the first episode of the Eddie last night. And I want to talk about that for a little bit. Because this really is not your average Netflix series. The vibe of it is a complete one eighty of anything else. They have yeah right now in their content. And I watched it with my fifteen year old son and he was. You know engrossed in something in his hands as kids are these days, but when it was over I didn't even ask him what he thought. He just offered up man. The music really set the tone of that show, that's. Exactly what I hoped would happen. It takes place in Modern Day Paris. The main character is a jazz pianist. Who is a co? Owner of jazz club called the kind of in a little CD or neighborhood in Paris. I'm taking it just by the vibe and the things that happened in the show. But how did you get involved with this show? And because you have written the music for it? Including the main song, the which is at the end of the first episode and I WANNA. Say the place that it serves the episode because I don't want to throw out any spoilers for anybody who hasn't seen it yet, but. Man Just fits so so well. How did you get involved in this? How did it come around? Well? I got involved by coming up with the idea for a part-time Parisian about thirty seven percent French according to my DNA. My father's from Louisiana so I have some French Louisiana and May and Growing up around New Orleans, around jazz, my whole life and yeah, always enamored of. The musicianship involved with playing jazz. So for May I. In my long. Career started off working with Quincy Jones. Who is himself? She has refugee. And you know. One of the first songs I had recorded was by George Benson another great jazz artists who was actually doing kind of pop crossover because. George Benson started singing. He got ten times more popular than just playing guitar. His right right is guitars ever so I think what I learned from from that, is it pop music has a certain dominance, but quincy I in the ten years that I worked with him very closely. We always lamented like what happened to jazz. Of course quincy. Made incredible connections between hip hop jazz is one of the rate authors folks sort of launching this new sound that in in many ways grows out of jazz grows out of blues, gross out of rap. But for probably mile career wanted to find a meaningful way to do use the jazz vocabulary as a songwriter, and so it took me a while to figure out how to do that. If you could write a bunch of jazz song right now, give them to a contemporary artists. It's the likelihood that that would be heard is very low. Right basically because people like you a fifteen year old son. Actually don't know what jazz is they they as something that people did. Time before them or they look back at the great black and white photographs of Miles Davis. And that's to them. What jazz is and so? It's not alive anymore. You know so. It was for me, I. I had this dream that I wanted to have my own jazz. Bad right the songs for it have a great singer and has store to go with it. That was the way I wanted to approach the whole idea of me involve. Seriously with Jazz. In two thousand and seven I. was working with a jazz trumpeter named Christian Scott One of the great young jazz artists in the world. He's from New Orleans and I literally got inspired in two thousand seven to create a project that would allow me to have my band. Allow me to write jazz songs and have a story to go with it, so I start writing songs in two thousand seven. I wrote a bunch of songs with Christian. Ended up writing A, I don't know about sixty jazz new jazz songs while because I'm a pop songwriter I guess I wanted to make sure that they were songs that you could remember that had hooks, and that had a singer because I think that's what was missing from a lot of what people's perception of jazz with. It's become a self indulgent. Kinda closed off cul de sac sort of us against the world and for me. That's not which as I wanted to be something that. Celebrated being close to great -sition, playing music and people who do that Jazz, ensemble, or typically highly gifted musicians. In fact, you can't even sit in that circle if you can't really play so. I wanted to write a letter to all the musicians that I've grown up with and working in Hollywood was long as I have around some of the greatest greatest musicians ever. I wanted to find a way for them to use all of their Jews. And so for me, that was jazz, so rewrote all these songs. Two, thousand fourteen, I brought to friend of mine named Ellen Pool WHO's a great director producer. And he said I get it, and that's when he connected us with Damian. Chazelle, before La la land before I man. So you know Damian was involved with this project about seven years ago and said let's do this thing about jazz band living in Paris contemporary parents. Damian's got French background. I lived in and out of Paris in all. My life spent a Lotta time. They are in a lot of time. The Jessica was like look. Paris has changed. People have an idea of Pairs Anna. Jazz is being this kind of thing from the thirties or from the fifties Perez is a different place. Now it's still incredibly vivid in in. Has This great history? But what's the new jazz and you find that? Like you say on the fringes of Paris outside beyond the ring road in some of the errands dismounts that people don't know about unless you live in Paris. But they're still music being played in those places. And a lot of young people who go in there and listen so how what's the? Like in Paris are there. A lot of clubs is really pretty popular thirteen places where you can go hear jazz on any given night. Usually it's not anybody famous, but it's just people in. They're playing chasing. This thing called Jazz. And young people in an listening paying attention drinking smoking having fun. I just thought. This jazz is still alive. As intimate. Jazz belong concert stage. It's intimate. It's like Frank Sinatra said. I'm the greatest saloon singer who ever lived. Yeah and I love that idea of like music is personal. It's close. You're close to it and it. It has a a.
"ballard" Discussed on Cults
"Little specifics are known about how the Ballard's Ballard's built their following but as they spoke people listened as their audience grew the Ballard's pushed their teachings into stranger and Stranger Ranger territories guy claimed that he was a reincarnation of George Washington and that it was his destiny to lead America into a brighter meter age he also taught his followers about if they devoted themselves and their belongings to him and his teachings he could open their minds to the great i. AM presence the name. I am is a reference to exodus three fourteen. The moment where the God of the Hebrews Tells Moses I am that I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites. I am has sent me to you. In Jewish and Christian tradition it is therefore one way God refers to himself instead of giving himself a name by coopting. This idea the Ballard's claim that if a human being being began calling themselves I am. They could access their own. Inner God hood what they called the mighty. I am presence quiet. Contemplation nation and repeating affirmations could also help one reach his or her higher self one. Such affirmation was quote in the name of my mighty. I I am presence. I refuse to accept the tyranny of my human consciousness. Beloved Holy Christ self you step forth in your blazing reality and be the only presence acting here. Once a person had made spiritual contact with the I am presence they could use this newfound power power to increase the number of good things in the world and decrease the number of bad things world.

"After World War One Guy Ballard returned home to his wife and young son in Chicago Illinois. But soon after Edna Ballard's career career as a concert musician began to wane. She supplemented her income by getting a job at the philosophers Nook a Bookstore devoted to occult literature while working at the store at became heavily. Involved in the occult scene. She even became an editor for a local publication. Called the American cultists. STS AS EDNA went deeper. And Deeper into the occult World Guy followed close behind her. The couple began studying. Theo sophy a a religious movement that set the stage for many new age religions. That followed the term. Theo sophy covers a broad range of philosophies and religions that all have several basic beliefs in common the first is that beneath the physical plane of existence lies a deeper spiritual plan if existence. This spiritual plane. Rain can be reached by those people who are capable of transcending normal human consciousness. This can be accomplished through intuition. Meditation and revelation Russian when contact with spiritual plane is achieved. Practitioners can gain mysterious insight into the true nature of the world with this immense spiritual spiritual insight. The office believe they can gain great psychic or spiritual powers which they can use to influence the real world guy. Ballard took this particular idea to heart. He became a practicing fortune. Teller and medium. He offered his services to anyone who desired and he performed palm readings rituals rituals and seances for profit ever in the search of his hidden fortune. Guy also attempted to use his psychic powers to will himself to find the literal mine of gold sometime in the early nineteen twenty S. His dream started to seem like they might be coming true. One one of the Ballard's acquaintances who they'd likely met through. Guys work offered to finance a trip to California she wished for the Ballard's to stay at a cabin in the mountains is and search for goods. The cabin just so happened to be next to an actual gold mine. Seeing his opportunity to strike gold finally arrive guy. Excitedly moved his family to California cabin there. His fascination with finding gold apparently turned into an outright obsession every single day guy roamed the mountainsides searching for his gold. He became convinced that it was his destiny to find himself. A vein and yet asses search continued funding for the trip ran thin. It's unknown how long he searched the Sierra mountains but eventually he and his family were forced to return to Chicago cargo with no gold in their possession but guy hadn't given up on his dream he continued to buy and sell stocks in gold. Mines Out West just making his living off of his sales unfortunately most of the mines guy was selling stocks in where either fake or already. The emptied the stocks. He was selling worthless and he likely knew it. He amassed a sizeable portion of wealth but as minds began to fail his wealth quickly turned into debt when the people he owed money to came looking for him they took a closer look at his bookkeeping. They discovered he had never intended to pay them back at all. He was running a pyramid scheme guys. Debtors brought this information to police and in the early months of nineteen twenty nine nine. The Chicago courts indicted Guy Ballard for obtaining money and goods by means of the confidence game. A warrant was issued for his arrest. Just as the country began to slip into the Great Depression people were desperate to reclaim what money they could from guys pockets but before the police could could find him he abandoned his family and fled West. To California. Edna didn't hold this against him. She knew he had better things to do than go to prison. Listen and so the married couple lived half a nation apart with Edna raising donald all alone While guy hit out in California new occult writing swept the nation in March of nineteen twenty nine. The American magazine published a story called old seven minutes in eternity written by spiritualist and fascist political leader William Dudley pelley in the article pelly claimed to have had a revelatory out out of body experience one night as he fell asleep in the Sierra mountains his consciousness simply left his body and began to float above the ground his consciousness then awoke in a strange room with two glorious persons there to meet him. He felt exhilarating and refreshed and as he took a a closer look at the people. He realized that they were vaguely familiar. Definitely great men of history whose names escape him. Seeing these dead men in in front of him Pelly knew he had somehow entered the spiritual plane of existence where the dead keep on living. He also realized that he was standing standing with these two great men of the past because he himself would soon become a great man when the experience ended he returned to his body. He claimed that he had a new psychic power. pelley experienced what psychologists call an out of body experience or an toss copy the experience of seeing one's body in extra personal space but according to a study titled Out of Body Experiences and toss copy of neurological origin. There isn't enough scientific examination to conclusively explain these phenomena however the limited research that has been done suggests is that out of body. Experiences are more common people who have suffered brain damage to the temporal parietal junction of the brain. This portion of the brain often controls roles our own perception of our bodies and thus brain damage might explain why people sometimes feel detached from their bodies as such coach. It's entirely possible that William palliser experiences could be explained by brain damage that he was unaware of sustaining. It's also possible that he was simply we making the story up. Whatever the truth? Pele's article struck a chord with the American audience after a story was published psychics from all across the nation started writing letters to the magazine sharing their own personal out of body experiences. Many them pleaded for Pelley to continue writing articles so they could learn all he had to offer this birthed. Kelly's Silver Legion a fascist group of people who followed his teachings closely As he wandered the California mountains evading the police and searching for Gold Guy Ballard most certainly became familiar with the group in nineteen eighteen. Thirty fifty two year old guy decided to turn his Californian exile into a spiritual journey of his own. Not much is known about about what Guy Actually did in the mountains of California however when he returned to Chicago in one thousand nine hundred thirty two he had plenty of stories to tell. He explained Edna and anyone who would listen that instead of gold he had been searching for a spiritual enlightenment all along. He claimed that he had roamed from mountain. Top to mountaintop being pulled by some unknown calling that he felt growing deep within his soul as he wandered entered the Wilderness he drew ever nearer to Mount Shasta a snowcapped mountain in the northernmost part of California. He felt drawn to that glistening. Mm Snow and began to make his ascent up the slopes as he walked he ran into a second man also hiking up the path yet. There was something thing peculiar about this man. He was a stranger but still somewhat familiar and he was walking straight towards guy intrigued guy. I hailed the man and the stranger answered. He introduced himself as the count of Saint Germain and guy was immediately. STARSTRUCK are struck. The count of Saint Germain was a philosopher who wandered Europe in the seventeen hundreds. He was notorious for office skating. His own origins deliberately lying about who he was and where he was from. But it's clear. Wealth and intelligence gained in popularity among the European nobility of the time the count died died in seventeen eighty four but his legend lived on particularly amongst the crowds myths. That he was immortal and alchemist. I and even a prophet spread throughout the world myths. That Guy Ballard had surely heard thus when Guy Ballard ran into the Countess Saint Saint Germain on the side of Mount Shasta. He was both shocked and greatly intrigued. Guy Asked him what he was doing on the side of of a mountain. The count explained that much like guy had been searching for gold. The count had been searching for something else just as fervently the concept and said that he was a member of a supernatural hierarchy called the ascended masters this hierarchy was composed of all the greatest men who had ever lived including George Washington Jesus and the Buddha and they scoured the earth looking for people to join their ranks. The count added that he had had been searching Europe for centuries looking for someone worthy of being told the great laws of life yet for all his searching. He never found and a single European worthy of his teachings disappointed. In Europe's distinct lack of enlightened men the count travel to America to find the right man and his journey had brought him to Mount Shasta specifically to Guy Ballard the first worthy man he had ever met guy was initially shocked to hear the count layer him with such words of praise he initially pushed back saying the count must surely be mistaken but the wise man pressed on on he declared guy to be the messenger of the Great White Brotherhood for the Seventh Golden Age. a-coming millennial era of spiritual enlightenment enlightenment after making this declaration. The count pulled a chalice from his belongings and insisted that guy drink from it. Guy Drank from the cop saying it was filled with pure electronic essence. Once he had finished the drink he felt his consciousness leave his body and and together he and the count Wiz through time and space visiting fabled cities and discovering a cache of gold and jewels. vaas Guy I had finally found the gold. He had always been searching for to share his joy in newfound enlightenment. He returned to Chicago to his wife and son to spread.

"Oh you are to take over the Nazarene Fund so he still the founder. We still work closely with him in Mercury one. So we're doing a lot of work in the Middle East now. So we're running these operations rations. Isis is still alive. They don't have territory more. The Caliphate has been has been destroyed but they still exist and they still have thousands of kids in these are these are these are some of the most grotesque people I've ever seen I mean they they recruit pedophile anyone can come in and join isis pedophile. Join because of what they can do. And so we're still working a lot on opening up the those areas and getting those children out of the hands of other countries the worst for sex trafficking. It's really it's really any any developing country that has a resort town kind of is the worst. I'll tell you we have our the biggest office in Southeast Asia a lot going on there in Thailand a lot of That's where western go to to find children. Unfortunately and and and we actually target Americans help that we help the police target the Americans who are coming to abuse their children. And how are we doing in America in terms of conquering this issue Approach better than any other country because we have the best law enforcement in the world and we have high tech solutions that are unbelievable the Homeland Security Investigations. Where I came out of leading the way just so impressed? Their of their best partners The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Forces which we have are phenomenal. We support those as well. Our Foundation Asian. But they're still they're still a roughly two hundred and fifty thousand children in the United States currently being sold into sex slavery and that number thousands thousands of children are brought in from foreign every year. Here here's the problem with America's that we are the number one consumer of child videos in the world ways idioms videos we are the demand manned which is why I was talking to six. We had passed the La because George Bush recognizing Congress recognized we. The problem and our people are going over an abusing these children. So that was that was kind of the genesis of that of that bill but kids are still being brought over and they're still being exploited because if if a travel green get that child in the United States the price just went up for. He's GonNa make a lot more money by bringing the product to the the market where it's obviously words higher value and so there's a big problem and this is why This is one of the arguments that I may. I was heavy opportunity to brief the president in Congress and and op Ed when this whole wall debate was coming up because we've rescued the children in New York City. Who but for the wall? They would have been rescued. They the kids who were who were trafficked through the desert with no barrier and. I've talked to these kids. You know we we get them out and they said once they know some of them are getting older now and they're looking back what happened to them. There's one little girl who works for us she. She's in her early twenties. She she was kidnapped at twelve years old and Mexico and she was brought up. No no no barrier border anything marched right into New York City and between the ages ages of twelve and seventeen years old in New York City. This little girl was raped. We Guess About Sixty Thousand Times before she was on the set free and that's the fate of thousands of children. Now she looks Amiss and says you know what I wish. There had been some kind of opportunity one last opportunity for me. Had there been a border or wall where they're forced the traffic take me through the port of entry and I saw that law enforcement officer. Who by the way? These guys are trained to look for this. She said I would reach out helped me. It's one last chance so so I was going crazy during this debate about how a wall does nothing like tell that to these countless children who were raped hundreds of thousands of times that it means nothing. There's no opportunity there so so we are a major part of the problem and should be a major part of the solution. -able just say I mean from the bottom my heart. This has got to be one of the most interesting heart wrenching. Discussions that I've ever had on the show It's an issue that I like. I said I've been almost too terrified to discuss. Because it's just such a scary thing but it's become more and more necessary assery especially as we see people that are actively fighting to sort of say you know what not only should we now have border security not only doing need a more sexually liberated society but we should also also abolish what you just said. We had the best law enforcement in the world. We should be in abolishing entire units of our law law enforcement all native in the name of freedom And my goal suggest. Show people that that's actually all in the name of bondage and you look at all of these other countries that don't have what we have to realize that that's the circumstance we wrap every single episode about allowing the person that I am speaking with to leave a voice message for the world. Meaning you're going to look at this camera and you're going to go for two minutes and everybody in the world watches the Candice Owen Show. And they're here the message that you leave. Are you ready. I'm ready all right on your market set world. I give you Tim Jim Ballard. Hey World listen up. They they're slavery and is not dead. It's alive and Kansas something very important She said that it's terrifying to talk about this. And that's my fear that you're gonNA turn us off. It takes guts to listen to this interview. It takes guts to engage. And you know I. I used to teach International politics at one time life and people would. My students would talk about. Oh we talked about slavery in the nineteenth century. I would have been an abolitionist. I would've stood up and and I have to be the jerk and it sounds kind of Jerk Ish to say this but I had to tell him you. You probably wouldn't have been because understand this people in the north in the nineteenth century they didn't travel into South Carolina or Georgia to see slavery anymore than you and I traveled to Thailand or Mexico or other high traffic areas. Not that it doesn't exist here. It does but it's more hidden and so look back at history. You probably would have say I. I would have been one of those abolition that would have been Harriet. Tubman Frederick Douglass. Well now's your chance because the parallels are almost exact. It's going on now. Slavery is real. There's more people. Enslaved saved any other time in history of the world. And there's so much that you can do to help eradicate it and liberate and he'll these children so if you go to oh you are rescue dot org or the Nazarene Fund Dot Org learn about how you can get involved to help us. Liberate the captive. That was perfect. Thank you so much for joining thank you. It was just oh God I was trying so hard not to cry.

He's not exactly what he signed up for but if you've ever listened to joe rogan's podcast and i'm hit or miss would you i like specific guests or when someone one of my friends or someone on twitter or something we'll be middle guy. Have you should listen to this and i listen to this guy named jaakko. He's like this crazy navy seal. He's like one of the best navy seals ever and then he went back to train navy seals pretty fascinating. I mean this guy's a complete bad ass. I mean is probably one of the top ten bad asses on our like in america right now like legitimate bad ass and he has this thing on youtube. If you just type in enjoy a good and it's kind of like a motivational rant but it is i mean it makes a lotta sense and just he would talk about when you know the seals would come back and say well. We thought that there wouldn't be armored. Guards there there are in his response would always be good. Hey you know we are our humvee. We blew a tire. His response would always be good. You can say whatever you want it to him and his response would always be good. I would say that most motivational speakers like anyone that you watch worth their salt will always say the best thing in life that can ever happen when you is fail like fail fail more because you learn way more from failure and tough times. Did you ever do from good times cbs because the reality is people can always say be you know be humble in victory when you're making the most money like say a lot of people are not able to do that. I mean that's just that's the reality and the reality is when most people get a curveball in life. Whether that's what chris ballard just kinda got handed to them. Whether it's at your job something goes wrong. Economy turned mafia freak week when the reality is i've been fired twice in my life and i can't relate to chris ballard losing andrew luck. I can't relate to the navy seals but i can just relate my own own personal experience.

Four dramatically better now sucked initially just like any time. Um you get bad news. It really sucks.

"In Ballard at talking today about some clients that she has had along with you, Shannon, that, you know, some of us involve holistic, medications and rehabilitation through manual, movement and therapy and managing product paying conditions and things of that nature. Yeah. Rachel has a wonderful clinic. That's bridging again that traditional physical therapy Musk's skill to treatment that holistic treatment with some great results in that perfect patient for her. All right. Let's hear the conversation with Shannon, O, Kelly and Rachel Rachel. Well, this is our third time. We're talking each time. It gets better. I've learned so much about what you folks down there. I know our listeners have you know, I I R G here in interested in Seattle center for structural medicine because I know in healthcare there is a need for the type of services. You folks are providing down there this Fasha fascist new organ. There's a ton of research. Out there, and it can be problematic, and you address Fasha movement body mechanics and people have great results, and you mentioned previously sometimes patients come to you. And they're just stuck you know, what are people that you see give us some testimonials of results again with patients. Right. So I have a man who drives to Ballard from Ellensburg for our services. He had already been through a few different traditional perches to his knee pain. And he receives the bow and method and it really works on his whole structure because his knee pain was because of some really tight Fasha and really tight muscles globally in his system, the Boeing method really works for him. And now he can get back on his tractor. He can plow his driveway again he can chop wood. And he really wanted to get back to dancing and his knee pain is gone. And he has a bunch of different techniques to do. At home to stay pain-free. You mentioned this tissue fashion. I think we have to dive into this as much we can in the limited time, it's this new organ. There's been a lot of research and a lot of techniques and procedures that are are addressing Fasha. And he described it as a connective tissue. Can you can you tell people what it is? And how you influence it in when it's tight how it affects your body shar. So when I like to think of fascia as a three dimensional spiderweb, it's quite sticky. It moves a lot. It has all these tensile forces. And it's everywhere in your body also known as the interstitial them, it's made up of cells and everything in your body is within this tissue networks. So if you have a restriction somewhere in your leg, it could be affecting and manifesting somewhere else in your body. So that's why we have to look at the body as a whole is because it's all connected in these long. Fash align. So for example, I had a woman who came in for plantar fasciitis, and we were able to work on the connective tissue around her hips and her planner fasciitis went away. So if you have tightness in your hips, let lacking mobility in the hip is designed to internally next to rotate what can happen. Sometimes is that mechanical dysfunction can present itself down in the fashion. But if you're just looking at the fashion look into whole body, you'll miss the tightness in the hips. Exactly. So that's why we have to look at the whole body. And we also talked with her about how to manage the symptoms in case, they come back how to warm up her feet in the morning. Maybe looking at her shoes. So we thank you think about it. All it's total body concept. Hey, if you're out there listening, you have one of these conditions or you're stuck this is the place to go. Call Rachel at Seattle center for structural medicine per team will take a look at you there. One hour -pointment.

"And I think people were waiting to see this shopping spree that Chris Ballard was going to go on that didn't really occur like that. There was some additions. But it wasn't like what people were expecting. They're expecting Christmas morning with presence everywhere now. And I think I told her by at the combine what we were going to do. I mean, we look we that first week in a free agency. Is there that first few days is crazy? And and we actually were in on a couple of guys, but they're just there's you've got to have a point to where you just say, you know, what where we're out at this. When if it gets to this number we're going to be out and we're comfortable with that. We just we just feel like between, you know, the the rest of free agency the draft after the draft into the cut down that we can find an answer. That's going to fit our team. So let's say you're going through free. So you come up with a guy who's a ten million dollars a year player, you attach a ten million dollar figure to him. Do you ever budge off that and you say, okay, I'm going to go to ten seven five. I'm going to go to eleven million. How often does that happen? Or does not happen at all. It's not happened with us yet to say that to say that we wouldn't do that. Now. I'll never say never because the first time I do we'll we'll do it the next week. So we attach a max point that. Hey, look, and we do it before free agency starts you sit in there, and we talk. Okay. Where's where's the point that we're going to drop out? And then when it gets to that point, we you know, we just were out is it hard. Sometimes when you really wanna get that player. Now, I think you've gotta take motion out of because what will happen is you get in a you get in a back and forth. And you know, you're in the middle either. Either a great poker player or you're in the middle of a bidding war, and if I've learned anything over the last two years the ability to say, no is. Is really a powerful. It's a powerful thing. That's the true measure of success the ability to say no can do that. And it's hard. It's very difficult to do. But you know, you've just gotta have discipline with what you're doing. Then you gotta have enough confidence in your staff that you're gonna find answers, and look and even your coaching staffs. Gotta understand and are and I was just we were talking before we started here about you know, they don't ever get in panic mode. When if we're actually going after a player, and we don't get him. They there's I'm sure there's disappointment. But they know at the end the day, we're going to do the best we can try to find him an answer, you know, before we get into you know, between here in October November. I started out by asking you about quitting Nelson. And your selection of him last year at this time last year, we also had uncertainty facing Andrew look when you look back at last year and all that he was able to do did that surprise you even. No. I mean, I just had a an and I wish there was. I mean, just, you know, sometimes you go with your gut, but I just saw at gotten to know Andrew, so well, you know, from the first day I walked into building to watch, you know, his transformation and watch him work to watch him work through. Solving problems along the way. And then I knew the team around him, you know, his doctors his guys helped him our trainers. And then Willem it was helping him rehab. I just felt that it's I knew it was gonna play again, I knew he was gonna play too high level again. I just couldn't put a status. Why would never give you a date?
