Why Shame Is A Bad Public Health Tool Especially In A Pandemic
"Believe me I get it. I'm frustrated and angry to. After all, it's been four months of this. We know the right things to do. And when you see someone wearing a mask or groups of people hanging out close together, it's easy to get mad, even if in all fairness. Once or twice. Open defiance at this Castle Rock Colorado restaurant large crowds, no social distancing, and there's some news coverage right now. That caters to this anger. You know what I'm talking about. Many Americans are out and about on this memorial day visiting newly reopened businesses seems from the unofficial kickoff to the summer showing many Americans not practicing social distancing measure. I'm telling you to wear a mask where a damn ask, but this Kinda thing anger public shaming the urge to yell at people who aren't doing the right things. That can be precisely the opposite of productive. Yeah, as the researcher I've been. Watching all this unfold through that Lens Julia Marcus is an epidemiologist and professor at the Harvard. Medical School, she said he's HIV prevention. And for scientists Julia, who work in HIV or sexual health or even substance abuse? They know that shame can be a huge barrier when it comes to public health, and in these first few months of the Cova pandemic I was watching this same pattern happen where you know, these kind of absolutist public health messages and moralistic undertones were potentially contributing to what became rampant shaming of people who were flouting public health guidelines or doing things that people felt. Felt were high risk, and when we shame people for their risky behavior in a way that distracts us from where risk is really happening, which is typically much less visible like in prisons and nursing homes and food, processing plants, and those don't inspire the same moral outrage. I think for two reasons one. They're not right in front of our faces, but also to we don't think of those as people having fun and a pandemic which I think people really upset. Matt rage, Julia says might feel good to act on in the moment, but it's not gonNA solve our biggest problems right now. I find that taking that rage home, and really screaming alone has been very helpful for me to. Do that as well or you know my rage these days first of all I would say that knows no bounds, but also. To be honest. My regions more directed at institutional failures than individual ones. To episode Julia Marcus on the role. Shame plays in public health crises. We talk masks. School reopenings in the long road ahead. I'm Maddie's defy, and this is shortwave daily science podcast from NPR. Julia Marcus has written a bunch of great pieces for the Atlantic about why. Shame is not helpful right now and how we can do things better. She's looked this when it comes to mask wearing social distancing and how we open college campuses, we talked about all those things, but the first thing to say here is that there is a fine line between public shaming and some positive forms of peer pressure. I, yeah I WANNA make a distinction here between social norms and shaming I. think social norms are very powerful and. That can be one of the best ways I think to change. Health behavior is like well. Everybody else is doing it so I'm going to do it because it's more like i. want to feel good when I go in the grocery store and I'm not gonNA. Feel great if I'm the only one not wearing a mask, so, but there's a difference between making people feel bad about their risky behavior and making people feel good about engaging and protective behaviors as a way of like becoming part of What the new social norm is Marie right? Right Okay Julius. You've written a bunch of great pieces for the Atlantic. Let's talk about your most recent one I. It's you know how to not open colleges this fall. You started out by describing an email that went out to students at Tulane University earlier this month July seventh. What what happened there? Yeah I mean I I I don't WanNa. Pick on two lane here. Becher, that was it just an example of some of the communications that were starting to see toward students who are on campus this summer and have been having some parties. And there was an email that we're not to students that really condemned stat behavior as disrespectful, indefensible, dangerous selfish, and made it very clear in bold all caps that hosting parties of more than fifteen people would result in suspension or expulsion from the university and that if students wanted the school to remain open, they needed to be personally responsible. I'm in their behavior and When a university says, we will hold you accountable for having a party, and actually there will be dire swift punishment when inevitably there is an outbreak at a party. Students are going to be terrified to disclose that they were there. And students have now said this at the University of Connecticut were interviewed and surveyed about what kind of thing is going to work for them what their concerns are about the fall. And they universally said we. We are early close to universally said we're really afraid of how infection and risky behavior are going to be stigmatized such that we outbreaks will not be able to be controlled, so there needs to be appropriate consequences for putting your community at risk, and I would never say otherwise but that needs to be balanced against the need for public health efforts to be separate from discipline. And we've already seen contact tracing start to break down outside of campuses, because people are afraid to talk about having been at event that that they know is something they should not have been doing yeah. So. You know kind of following that thread. The part of this pandemic that's been hardest for a lot of people is is social distancing in in several of your pieces you wrote about how a lot of the advice especially in the beginning was almost like an abstinence based approach like stay home. See Nobody which absolutely made sense kind of at the. The beginning, but tell me about why. That approach doesn't necessarily make sense for the long-term well asking people to abstain from all social contact indefinitely or until we've scaled up. An effective vaccine is just not going to be a sustainable public health strategy, and I think now our messaging has evolved a bit especially as there's been an accumulation of evidence around. The risk is highest like what's settings or higher risk, in which ones are lower risk, but I think we continue to still have a tendency toward absolutist messaging and I think that our goal should be to two inch. People tour to a place where they are living their lives in a way that addresses all aspects of their health, while trying to keep tr- risk of transmission low, and so one way that that could play out is encouraging outdoor activities, especially in spacious areas, opening up more outdoor space for people, and there's been a tendency to close beaches and close parks where people gather, but. But I actually think doing the opposite on could could be helpful, but the essential point is. We can't stay in our homes forever and many people couldn't stay in their homes for the last few months because they were working sure, but it's clear from other areas of public health that asking people to abstain from something that they fundamentally need or strongly desire is not an effective public health strategies, so we have to find ways of making our messaging more nuanced, that allows people to get what they need to be able to live sustainably while keeping the risk of transmission low until you there. There are examples of nuanced messaging from others accessible public health campaigns. Right I. Mean You work on HIV? Can you give me an example of that? Yeah, so we you know we don't tell people don't have sex. Because that's the best way to not get HIV, we may save the safest thing you can do to avoid HIV transmission is not have sex, but we understand that many people are going to have sex, and that it's a you know a part of a healthy life, and so here are some safer ways to have sex, both in terms of certain sexual acts in in terms. Terms of protection different ways you can protect yourself and you know becomes a more nuanced message, but it's much more sustainable for people and realistic and the long term, and it also acknowledges people's basic human needs right, and there's also this idea that talking about ways to reduce risk encourages people to take those risks, even though from a public health standpoint. We know that isn't true. So I'm wondering Julia like. Why do people hold onto this concern? Like what is this really about yeah I, mean this is definitely not new. It comes up a lot. I think especially around drug, use and sex. And I think the reason it especially comes up in those settings is that those are behaviors that we have a lot of moral judgments about particularly in this country, and there's this kind of moral outrage that happens when we think about people engaging in risky, which is often pleasurable, behavior, sex, drug use, and these days going to the beach like. it's kind of playing out in this new way now with social contact and partying and people having a good time in a pandemic, which it's actually a public health win when we find ways to support people in enjoying their lives, and and getting their basic social or sexual needs, met while remaining a safest possible, and you've made the point that we've. We've already seen this play out with the corona virus, public health officials, hesitating to give people detailed ways to protect themselves instead of avoiding risk altogether, I mean I remember. We reported early on in this pandemic when Dr Burks of the White House Coronavirus Task Force said. We don't want people to get this artificial sense of protection because they're behind a mask. This lack of consistent messaging is one of the reason that a lot of people still aren't convinced that masks are helpful, so you know. Julia, how do public health officials effectively reach? Those people yeah I mean I. Think in general we always see some resistance to any new public health intervention, condoms, and you know pre exposure prophylaxis for each V. I mean every intervention that comes out. There's resistance. There's challenges with implementation. There are moral concerns you know. This is all kind of par for the course, but I think what's new here and a bit different is not necessarily just the polarization which we do, see an Ciaran things like vaccines, but the politicization. Politicization I don't think there has been I can't think of an example where a sitting president has flouted public health recommendations and I think that that has created kind of a politicized around masks. That wouldn't have necessarily been there and so how do we overcome that? And how do we reach people I think again it comes back to hearing people's concerns, acknowledging them, and then working to overcome those barriers in our messaging and I. Think there are some good examples of that there have been a couple of great mask campaigns that have come out of California acknowledging that people dislike wearing them and acknowledging the reasons why people dislike wearing them. And I would guess that they are more effective in reaching certain populations than campaigns that that are more focused on this. Just wear ask. It's really easy kind of messaging. Yeah and don't you care about your community and don't you want to not kill people and That kind of messaging is like early days of AIDS. Messaging around condoms that I think was not as successful as the messaging that really focused on what the barriers were, and how people could overcome them. Yeah, yeah, with all this stuff that we've been talking about colleges masks. You know keeping safe distance. It's pretty tough because the stakes feel so high like this is really a nasty virus, and when we see people, you know not doing the right things, the instinct there to shame them to get mad for a lot of us at first instinct and I. I guess it's just that we need to take some patients to push past them. Yeah, I mean I, think it's really. Valid to feel angry about what's happening right now, and for people who are not necessarily taking care of themselves or their community and putting other people at risk. It's very frustrating to see, but I think especially for public health professionals. It's on us to do the work to avoid the shaming and the anger and the moralizing in our messaging. Because we've learned that that doesn't work in other areas of health and really try to take the time to craft messaging. That is going to be more effective. Julia Marcus.

"I'm tired of ceiling sick Nothing is working like. Just please stop but I didn't I don't I don't know why didn't you knew so that that second treatment There was a period where A two weeks I lost about twenty pounds and I'm already thin. To begin with so twenty pounds was a lot. I was like a walking skeleton but the treatment was working but they they couldn't give it to me anymore because it was going to kill me so they stopped it and then a few months later I was Everything was kind of stable. Well not gone but stable. And then a few months later The tumors in the lung started growing again after all this after After the Chemo after through this new treatment yellow so then The new doctor said well there's a clinical trial and you won't pay anything you just come and meet we. We provide everything for you. Okay and I did find on the clinical trial for about six months and then He told me that the tumors in the lungs were growing rowing and the clinical trial wasn't working so essentially I got kicked out and he told me the best option for me was to have ELOPE Olloba my long removed so so I did do that. But at the time I had tumors in both lungs Some movin relatively large. They were going to remove the largest one but I still had tumors in both lungs and they had said there's nothing else we can offer you in terms of treatment and I said okay I gotTa do something here. I need to make a change so I found somebody. Buddy who worked in the cannabis industry and I went and I met with him and I said I will. Do Anything helped me like this. This isn't working. And I'm I'm going to die when what turns you. What turned you onto the cannabis? Did how did you. How did that come about? I think I mean you've gone through so much already. It's like okay. This isn't isn't working. This isn't working. What what turned that into your mind of going to cannabis at this point Sister actually she. Has You know taking cannabis before. So she's like they care. Go Go to this guy and he'll help you Like okay I got a guy So I went to the guy and he was like the most friendly individual well and he just kind of laid it out there. He's like this is what you have to do. You need a change. Your Diet and this is how much Cannabis you need to take. I said Okay I will do I will do it. Do you. Know much about cannabis at this point. Had you used cannabis yourself before this or do you. I had not and you know. There's there's a big stigma about you know using it and people that you know use cannabis are potheads or whatever and I was like. That's not that's not me but I I had lost I. I had no hope left and so I'm like what do I have to lose by trying this so so I did well and I started. And there was a little hiccup in the middle I you take two kinds you take. CD and then you take separate thc kinds of oil. And I thought that once you Built up a tolerance to the. THC that you didn't need CD anymore. So I stopped taking the CD. Not and then the This I'm getting a little backtracked here but the cancer Grew again when I stopped taking the CD. Oh Wow and and I called my guy said hey what the hell you're you said this would work. And he's like now you have to take both of them together. They work together. I said okay. So so how long have you been taking it in So you were getting scans regular then to see this right And how long. How long had you been taking the cannabis at that point that they were showing that it had grown again? A little bit Probably Tim Berta. Maybe January okay so months and what. We're what so you were taking oil. Do you know how much you're taking each day. I don't the guy that I was getting it from. Just sad. You take twelve drops. And they're like like pin-sized drops not a lot and when I was having all the problems he said you need to increase your dosage eighteen drops so his drinking eighteen drops as oil a day and then a dropper of the CD oil. Before I would take the oil. Wow and then so then and at that point so you're taking it and you know the then once you got back on the regular regimen you're supposed to be on you know taking both a CDN thc. How long did you take it? And then what happened after that Let's see I you know I have the surgery in May of two thousand seventeen And I was taking Lena until probably the end of the year. I had a scan in August after the lung surgery and all I hadn't done any kind of western medicine. It was just diet and cannabis. Okay and the scan showed that all of the tumors and the left lung and the right lung and the network on. Oh my gosh. And the only thing I had been doing was diet and canopus the doctors they said. Oh well it's because the The treatment we did is working now. I'm like well wasn't working before everything was growing and you said it wasn't working. So why is it working now so I continue to do that for a while. Probably until January of the next year. And then I kinda slowly weaned myself off and it's been how long now that you've been cancer free. It was two years in August. Congratulations I thank you all from this amazing plant and you listening to yourself and you listening listening to what you needed and and just standing up for no we need to do this and you know your body.

Road rage right. I'd WANNA say road rage but that's it is kinda crazy out here and I would know I've only Vinh from here so I I'm sure it's different somewhere else. Yes we'll we'll tell us a little bit about your cancer journey. If you don't mind I know that you have quite a story story that I want everyone to hear so I do so when I was I was actually eighteen. I noticed That there was something wrong with like this spot on my face and I went to the doctor and they told me I was being self conscious and that there was nothing wrong so I believe leave them but then three years later the same spot was still there and it was bothering me and I felt like it was growing so I went I had actually started started my junior year. it's no mistake university and I went to a doctor there and I said look this has been bothering me for three years and no L. and seems to think anything is wrong but that doctor said well. I don't think there's anything wrong either but will biopsy. We'll see what we're dealing with. So Oh he biopsy that and called me and said you have a really rare form of melanoma and most people think of melanoma as a You a lot of exposure to the sun right you can actually get it from no exposure to the sun which was what mine was and it was A cancer that I usually affected sixty year old men a new twenty one. At this time I was twenty one but they original tumor showed up when I was eighteen. So there was like a a thousandth anthem percent that I was going to get this kind of cancer. So at that time I had surgery to remove it and then it was pretty deep because it had been growing for three years so whereabouts whereabouts. You said it was on your face. Whereabouts on your face was it? It was like my cheekbone cheekbone sheikh bone so it was deep Left a really big scar and then after that They wanted to do radiation and they said that if they did that it would most likely never come back so I said okay. I did radiation kind of show. The head and neck and How many readers and treatments did you have to go through I? I did a month of the high dose radiation. Okay Yeah and I lost only here on half of my head. So I- Shave my whole head at that time. 'cause it's ridiculous to have one full side of hairier side rocker so I shaved my head and And then then I was fine and how I mean and you're in college you're going through this. I can't even imagine what this was like to go through it at such a young age. When you're thinking of all you're thinking about is your future at this point I mean how was that for you? It was definitely hard and like I said I had transferred. My family was in southern California and I was in northern California so it was really hard. I knew I didn't know anybody at my new school cool but luckily I had a a wonderful roommate and then when I was sick she would like make me dinner and they were always there for me so that was great having not little family up there and then my family would come when they could and My mom took me to the surgery and I had friends. That would take me to the radiation appointments so I built a little community lady up there and were you able to study. I mean were you having You know to take a hiatus from classes or I think I took an incomplete in one class but I finished it within spend two months I I went to a very small school so my professors were amazing. Actually had one that would she's like if you can't get to class just do the reading and I will come to your house like after we can discuss what you read and you can submit your stuff that way but I I didn't miss too much Too many of my classes and that's good because I mean going through that kind of treatment. You never know how. It's you hear so many different stories of it didn't really affect me or you know I just couldn't even get out of bed so so I'm glad to hear that you were able to rest but you could still kind of function to do you need to do so. Yeah it was I mean it was hard but it wasn't that hard. Yeah yeah well and then fast forwarding. So this was your twenty-one you go through radiation treatments they tell you that it's not gonna come back and then at that point what happened so They said like once you hit the five year cancer free mark. You're you're really good and once you hit the ten year mark like no way. It's coming back so I hit. I hit the ten year Mark Mark and then I noticed in my jaw some smiling and it was hurting really bad. So I I went to the doctor and Doctor told me There's no way it's your cancer. I would know if your cancer where back it's been ten years. It's just not possible that you saw previously no because I had moved back act to southern California at that point so this was a new doctor. Um so I said okay You know I'm going to trust you know your years of experience. France of course so He told me that it was probably Like a secondary infection you can. I guess you can get that from the radiation treatment. So ooh he gave me antibiotics and I think two or three weeks. Later at the the mass wasn't getting any smaller and it was still hurting a lot so I I called him. I said I need you to order a scan The antibiotics didn't work. This thing is still here. It's growing and I. I need to know what this is so he ordered it and then he called me and said you're right. There is a a mass there. We need to do a biopsy so I think a couple of weeks later They did a biopsy and then They called me and confirmed that it was a recurrence of the cancer. And I when I got that call. I remember exactly where I was and I just dropped to the floor and started crying. 'cause I I was in the medical field at that point and I knew that if it comes back and just the way that it came back that it wasn't good news right so They said we're going to do. Do we have to do like a radical surgery on your face and what they wanted to do. Let's take everything off of my face. They were going to take the skin the bone. So he's basically GonNa be a skeleton on the left side and I asked the doctor. I said if you do that can you one hundred percent guarantee that it will never come back again. And he's like I can't guarantee not that so I said I want you to preserve everything that you can. So they did the second surgery and they. They took out the tumor. It was huge huge and it grew. It grew really fast the second time around the first time it grew really slow but when it came back it was just like taking over half of my face. Oh Gosh I mean were. Are you getting headaches. And having that in your child and your face were you able to see. I mean we have another issues at that point. I wasn't and one of the things they found When they did the surgery The doctor said I don't know how you've been blinking. Because the tumor had completely wrapped around the the nerve that was leading waiting to my eyes and they had to take that out and they had to Put an implant in my eyelids so I can blink so I can't blink on my own. I have a gold bar in my eyelid. So it was you know we we all knew it was bad but once they got in there and you know saw everything that was going on it was like kind of even worse than they thought. Thought it was about a twelve hour surgery but he preserved everything he could. He was an amazing doctor. He listened to what I wanted even though all of his colleagues were saying. No you just need to take everything. Yeah so you knew you knew what you wanted to. You knew what you needed. It's the you spoke up and said let's do it this way and what I feel comfortable with. I'm glad they lessened so then after the surgery. They decided to do Chemo. So I did Chemo for a year. The first month you go like four four hours a day five days a week for an infusion and that was just miserable miserable and I had a bad reaction the first day and a couple other times I got it. It's like having like the worst case of the flu for a whole year and then the next eleven months. Give yourself shot three times a week so I did that but coming up on the end of the Chemo I would. I developed a cough and I'm the respiratory therapist so I knew I knew something was with miss so I went to my oncologist at the time. I said Hey I have this cough. And they're like yeah you you know not. It's probably nothing Mike Okay. So I finished the Chemo and I was fine for two months and then It came back in my lungs. The cancer the cancer did after. I stopped the Chemo. Came back In both my lungs and addition on the cancer was gone from your FA- from the spot on your face. It was gone from my face but it had metastasized alongs bilateral lungs and they and this was after basically a year and a year of Chemo. And then the eleven months of doing the shots this is after two years. Yeah wow so it came back to long so the cough was actually because I had tumors in my lungs long and they. They told me okay. We're going to start you on this New Treatment and you're going to be coming. You know this many days a week I and I said Okay Great I like another opinion so Please give me your thoughts on on everything we've talked about. So I got the notes and the doctor didn't tell me see that he was scheduling me for Palliative Chemo. which basically means? They're going to make you comfortable until you pass a heathen me. He already given up on you before. He didn't tell me that I was dying. He thought that I was dying. Any he wrote that I had a poor prognosis and your respiratory therapist so you we know the lungs you know Wow Yeah so. At that point. I made a decision and I said I'm I'm not staying with this company anymore. I'm going to go find somebody that will help me so I went to a new doctor My sister is an oncology nurse and she asked her doctor Franz where should she go like. She's lost all hope to somebody that will help her. So they sent me to the the right guy and he he said well. There's this new treatment and we'll start you on that a- and I said okay so they started me on it and It was rough. How how are you emotionally feeling at this point? I mean I can't even imagine it's like a treatment here treatment. Let's try this. Let's try that. I can't imagine how it's you know. It was just really hard and I I remember before each treatment would start well off. I think it may be after the second treatment I was like I'm not doing anything else. I'm tired of ceiling sick Nothing is working like. Just please stop but I didn't I don't I don't know why didn't you knew so.
"becher" Discussed on OC Talk Radio
"I'm tired of ceiling sick Nothing is working like just please stop. Yeah but I didn't I don't I don't know why didn't you knew so that that second treatment There was a period where A two weeks I lost about twenty pounds and I'm already thin. To begin with so twenty pounds was a lot. I was like a walking skeleton but the treatment was working but they they couldn't give it to me anymore because it was going to kill me so they stopped it and then a few months later I was Everything was kind of stable. Well not gone but stable. And then a few months later The tumors in the lung started growing again after all this after After the Chemo after through this new treatment yellow so then The new doctor said well there's a clinical trial and you won't pay anything you just come and meet we. We provide everything for you. Okay and I did find on the clinical trial for about six months and then He told me that the tumors in the lungs were growing growing and the clinical trial wasn't working so essentially I got kicked out and he told me the best option for me was to have ELOPE Olloba my long removed so so I did do that. But at the time I had tumors in both lungs Some movin relatively large. They were going to remove the largest one but I still had tumors in both lungs and they had said there's nothing else we can offer you in terms of treatment and I said okay I gotTa do something here. I need to make a change so I found somebody. Buddy who worked in the cannabis industry and I went and I met with him and I said I will. Do Anything helped me like this. This isn't working. And I'm I'm going to die when what turns you. What turned you onto the cannabis? Did how did you. How did that come about? I think I mean you've gone through so much already. It's like okay. This isn't isn't working. This isn't working. What what turned that into your mind of going to cannabis at this point Sister actually she. Has You know taking cannabis before. So she's like they care. Go Go to this guy and he'll help you Like okay I got a guy So I went to the guy and he was like the most friendly individual well and he just kind of laid it out there. He's like this is what you have to do. You need a change. Your Diet and this is how much Cannabis you need to take. I said Okay I will do I will do it. Do you. Know much about cannabis at this point. Had you used cannabis yourself before this or do you. I had not and you know. There's there's a big stigma about you know using it and people that you know use cannabis are potheads or whatever and I was like. That's not that's not me but I I had lost I. I had no hope left and so I'm like what do I have to lose by trying this so so I did well and I started. And there was a little hiccup in the middle I you take two kinds you take. CD and then you take separate thc kinds of oil. And I thought that once you Built up a tolerance to the. THC that you didn't need CD anymore. So I stopped taking the CD. Not and then the This I'm getting a little backtracked here but the cancer Grew again when I stopped taking the CD. Oh Wow and and I called my guy said hey what the hell you're you said this would work. And he's like now you have to take both of them together. They work together. I said okay. So so how long have you been taking it in So you were getting scans regular then to see this right And how long. How long had you been taking the cannabis at that point that they were showing that it had grown again? A little bit Probably Tim Berta. Maybe January okay so months and what. We're what so you were taking oil. Do you know how much you're taking each day. I don't the guy that I was getting it from. Just sad. You take twelve drops. And they're like like pin-sized drops not a lot and when I was having all the problems he said you need to increase your dosage eighteen drops so his drinking eighteen drops as oil a day and then a dropper of the CD oil. Before I would take the oil. Wow and then so then and at that point so you're taking it and you know the then once you got back on the regular regimen you're supposed to be on you know taking both a CDN thc. How long did you take it? And then what happened after that Let's see I you know I have the surgery in May of two thousand seventeen And I was taking Lena until probably the end of the year. I had a scan in August after the lung surgery and all I hadn't done any kind of western medicine. It was just diet and cannabis. Okay and the scan showed that all of the tumors and the left lung and the right lung and the network on. Oh my gosh. And the only thing I had been doing was diet and canopus the doctors they said. Oh well it's because the The treatment we did is working now. I'm like well wasn't working before everything was growing and you said it wasn't working. So why is it working now so I continue to do that for a while. Probably until January of the next year. And then I kinda slowly weaned myself off and it's been how long now that you've been cancer free. It was two years in August.

Dwayne Haskins Throws with Giants Attending Pro Day
"Lot of pro days going on this week twos. Day. A large giants contingent including defensive coordinator James Becher was at Alabama on Wednesday. The Ohio State pro day where Dwayne Haskins was of course, the center of attention was attended by another large contingent of giants representatives head coach Pat Shurmur couple of the scouts several of the assistant coaches there to check out, you know, the the many prospects, you know, that that attend Ohio State, and we're working out today. We heard that the giants also had had dinner on Tuesday night with Dwayne Haskins. I'm not sure what to read into all of that. I look at it. Like the giants are simply doing due diligence getting to know as much as they possibly can about all of these guys entering the draft. So and also on Thursday as I said coming up, the Missouri pro day withdrew lock. I would intimidate once again, a large contingent of giants representatives to be in Missouri to watch lock workout. So, you know, it's it's an interesting time. You think maybe there isn't a whole lot going on. You know, the the main part of free agency is done the draft is a few weeks away. But there are still things going on still lots of intrigue, you know. And you never know what's going to happen. You never know what Dave Gettleman might do. But an awful lot. You know, continuing to go on at this point in time.
Giants are unlikely to franchise tag Landon Collins
"I will also say that I was in have been very much surprised over the past few days by what seems to be the giants willingness to allow Landon Collins to enter free agency Tuesday is the day when the giants have to decide whether or not to use the franchise tag on Collins to keep him from entering free agent. A week ago. I would have said that I thought it was pretty certain that the giants would do that. After listening to Dave Gettleman on Wednesday in Indianapolis. I'm not so sure I think that Gettleman talked a lot about distractions. He talked a lot about how upset players get when you use the tag on them. He talked an awful lot about eliminating distraction. He talked a lot about the financial ramifications of using the tag on Collins, and what that would do to the giants ability to improve their team and use their their Capri sources, you know, in free agency in other things. So to me, you know, I've been a little bit surprised over the past few months to be honest with you that there seems to be somewhat. Of disconnect between Collins in the giants. At least I have the impression that there is that they don't quite see things the same way, whether that's Collins value, whether that's the position in how he should be used you know on the field by defensive coordinator, James Becher. But I just don't think that the relationship between Collins and giants management is as healthy or as good as one would hope that it would be. A veteran scout told me that he thinks the consensus around the league at this point. Is that the giants will not tag Collins that they will allow him to test the free agent market. And at this point, I have to agree with that. It's you know, much to my surprises. I said I would not have felt that way a week ago. But I think that I think that Collins is going to be allowed to test the market, and we'll see what that does to the giants defense will see how that we'll see how all of that plays out soon enough.

"Bet. Becher lawn is suffering, and you don't want winter kill this year like last year. So we'll talk about winter watering and a lot more this Saturday morning nine to eleven on around the house right here on six thirty K Hal. Road again. Hi, Tom Martino, your troubleshooter. This Email wants to know that wink, wink dot com. Phone number again, it's four one zero three zero three four one zero seventeen twenty again. I look at bankruptcy for two things. Mainly. One is for getting out of a rip-off if someone ripped you off in a contract, and you wanna break it like in a bad car deal, not just any cardio. But really were they screwed somebody young. And they just need to get out of it or saving home from foreclosure with arrearages that you want to spread out make those payments to get caught up again. The other kinds of bankers. I'm not going to sit in judgment, but just the credit cards and all that, you know, I like to believe those doing bankruptcies do it for you know, what we call the right reasons. Right. The beyond their control, but I'm not going to sit in judgment of anyone wink, wink dot com. Bankruptcy laws are very controversial. So our so our things when it comes to criminal defense. Very controversial. I mean, there are people that assume someone is guilty as soon as they hear it, and they don't like the idea of criminals fence. It's amazing. And then there are some people you ever noticed why some people if they're accused of something that goes way never comes back, but other people if they're accused of something it keeps resurfacing like lake lake people become holy again. I call it. Kobe. Bryant was accused of rape was horrible. You never. Here. It never hear anything at all Kobe Bryant's like a Saint. But then you you get someone like your, but he went through hell when she first came out man, of course. And and I'm not. I don't know anything about as far as guilt or not guilty. But it went away he wasn't prosecuted. And then there are other cases that go away too. But the people are still they're still stigmatized. So I don't know what it takes. And why some people have our Teflon and other people just I think it's when people love to hate people, and they have an excuse it sticks. And when people love people the accusations go away. Three zero three seven one three eight two five bucks. I gotta get to people especially those have been waiting. Okay. So Matt I'm sorry waiting so long. Matt what's happening, sir? Let's try to help you. Good morning. What's going on me? Well, last year, my wife, and I bought a washer and dryer set from Sears of thorton. Did you buy the Kenmore or did you buy another brand? You know? I can't remember I believe it is the ten more. What's the problem? What's the problem? Well, so we buy it last year when we bought it. We'll bought the extended warranty here at the first January. The washer went out. I called Sears said, hey, the washers out. Did you buy the extended warranty from Sears? Yes. We did. They have terrible service. And nor does it matter there in BK. Yeah. I know I'm finding that out. But I call them said, hey, you guys come out look at this get repaired they said well since you live in Windsor. We don't have a repair guy. We're going to have to send out a third party not gonna get it. I'm just gonna tell you right now. They are in trouble. So what's the latest? Did you get anyone to your home? No. Well, yes, we got somebody's home a month and a half later. It's still not fixed. We got a family of five and we've accumulated probably five six hundred dollars worth of laundry expensive since then. And so I'm having trouble getting the same sex. But also Sears is telling us that they will not reimburse us for of course, they won't coil. The laundromat now. Of course, they won't. I mean, we're why should they most likely agreement that you can go to a laundromat? I'm not saying they should or shouldn't. Well, actually, I am saying that you should never you shouldn't assume they're gonna pay for your laundromat. But but here's the bigger question. I need to know the manufacturer because the manufacturer can take care of this directly. If the manufacturer is Ken more than we got a problem. Do you do is there any way you can find out do, you know, is it a Kenmore? It is Kenmore. Okay. Well, now, you're so you have an appliance with a bankrupt company. That's really what it is. And unfortunately, there's not much you can do about it. I will be amazed. If in ninety days, there's still a Sears. It's not under a liquidation sale. We kinda. Yeah. You are. But so what I mean? I don't mean. So what I mean? It's not doesn't mean you have something worthless. Call another repair, you can still get it fixed. And then try to. Try to go after them if they come out of bankruptcy. They told us is not available won't be available for like forty five days. They can't get the park for part is it. He called it a motherboard. So somebody wait a minute. So somebody did come out and look at it. Yeah. Yeah. Third party came out and looked at it. You mean somebody who about a you hired. No, somebody Shearson out. Okay. So listen, here's the thing. It says here from Kenmore we are honoring our warranties protection agreements in guarantees as normal in a written statement. And then they said you can still go and ask for help. That is what they're saying. However, if they go through bankruptcy. They don't have to. Most of them have been now. Now, the judge can can order them to take care of certain claims and usually warranty claims are up there. You know, employees are first warranty claims promises unfilled orders, but. You're going to have there's going to be a problem. You're going to have a problem. No matter what. Because it's not going to be as easy as if you just bought it from like best buy and you had a warranty or you bought it from Home Depot, and you had like a Samsung, you're you're dealing with a bankrupt company. So anybody you suggest or recommend for what we needed to take legal action again. Okay, man in bankrupt sat there is no legal action. You don't go after bankruptcy. I mean, I mean, do you understand that you can buy a brand new washer and save the ridge? It'll be probably less than half a retainer just to get an attorney you understand. You know, what I'm saying what legal action would you take breach of contract? But there is no breach of contract if they're in bankruptcy. I mean there is, but where do you don't get any loss? You don't get any losses or damages. So we're just kinda out. Yeah. It here. I don't I don't delight and telling you this. But it's like you bought something. And then the company goes out of business. They're not out of business yet. So if they ordered the part, and if you're waiting for the part, you're still in good standing, they may come out of bankruptcy. You may get this fixed. The judge may order that they continue honoring warranties. It. All depends on the bankruptcy court. They're so screwed man. They have they have one point eight billion in liabilities. Just for pension just for pay. And that's going to be a priority. That's going to be the priority over anything. When did you buy this last April? Oh, okay. It was before you knew they were going to go into pre bankruptcy. Yeah. Yeah. So it's screwed if he bought it after bankruptcy. He'd actually have a better chance again some done. Yeah. But it might be. So matt. How would I would do is is go along with it until they fix it? I mean, they might fix it. They're not talking like, they're not gonna fix it. Right. No, they they just said the part wouldn't be available for another forty five days, and it's already been thirty. So okay. So let's see what happens if it's going to be available. Let us know could work in the worst case scenario. Not the worst. But the, but the worst case scenario is you have something useless. But I think even if they get the part and this third party says we're not doing it for Sears unless you pay for it. I would pay for it. Otherwise, you have something useless. I think Dave destroyed that brand to I think they specked out too cheap Chinese crap. Now, they're doing everything just to stay afloat honest to God. Really that was that was a very good brand back in the day. Yeah. It was a good brand. Just like craftsman craftsman been sold so crass lack in decker or a Stanley one of them. But are they still doing the lifetime? No matter what I don't know. So listen, Matt. I would wait another fifteen days. See what this place says about the replacement parts? And if at all possible, we do have an angel at Sears. If at all possible, they stay in business. We'll try to get it taken care of we really well now Jack said he worked with Tom Bruin Bruins auction. So Jack, I want to take a quick break. But I want to hear what you have to say, you how long did you work with Tom Bruin? I had two consignments with them about two and a half years ago twenty thousand dollars and the other one was for forty thousand. Oh, so when you worked with him, you mean, you you contract it with him. You didn't you weren't an okay hold on. I'd love to hear your experience Bruins auction gallery. I mean, the guy is seems a little unstable to us. He started kicking and biting and frothing at the mouth with Mark. I might have exaggerated, but he did kick and scream like a girl and he's upset with Mark over over him pursuing him for this money. He took something on consignment and lied about it he continues to lie. So what do you call someone who lies you? Call him a liar. And when they don't pay and they say, you know, you're not gonna get it. He's a cheater. And then he tells Mark that. Well, you know, I don't have the money then he tells her while we never sold it on video. He's a liar and a cheater. And that's Tom Bruin a chief. Bruins auction galleries spread this word around. I don't care what he says. He's a liar and a cheater. So you shouldn't use them. You can't use people who lie and cheat. Tom bruin? We'll talk about it..

"He's back with you now because when it comes to the fight for truth never stops. Here's an interesting thing. That's happening. The whole idea of how does she identify? Does she identify as an African-American? Did you see the thing going on on social media? And she asked him apply as a person of color because when asked by Jake, if she, you know, as a black woman, she goes as a person of color, remember that whole thing with Obama is he black enough that is different than identified. But is this an interesting conversation to me that I hear people talking about? This is what they spend time on CNN. This is where their focus is. They're they're wanting to talk about how camera Harrison, she's obviously a woman of color does she identify as black. I mean, I think with most people she registers is black. But this is a this is a conversation of sorts. I don't think it's particularly important one. But how does one quantify or qualify blackness in this country? If someone is of of dual ethnishity, if you will mother and father are from different ethnic backgrounds. Do do you pick? Do you? Did there is identification? There is a self identity process in this whole thing. It's it's dizzying when you try to put all this stuff together and try to understand where they're going with all of it. But that's you know, that's and I know you say, oh BOK, that's just one clip. But now I mean today there was a focus on Howard Schultz. Not knowing the price of Cheerios. Is enough. He's out of touch billionaire doesn't know the price of Cheerios. I'm about a billion dollars short of being a billionaire, and I don't know the price of Cheerios off top of my head because I don't eat them. Yeah. I mean, I guess it's like three or four bucks. Maybe. But maybe it's six and it depends on where you shop. I don't know John. What do you know what the price of shares? This was a big story today for the media for five bucks. Okay. Exactly John depends on the size. See John does John noses Cheerios? Honey nut is obviously the way to go. If you're going to get your yes. But I think plain Cheerios are gluten free, but I'd have to check. But that's the kind of just nonsense that they focus on when I played for you. What what? And I'm not going to go back and talk more about what we started the show because it honestly, it upsets me it upsets me to talk about obsessed with the think about it. But we can't. Move away from hard topics. Just because there's there's other things on the horizon camera Harris, not a strong rollout out for. I would say eight certainly a top three democrat nominee contender not not going. So well so far. And here's one that we didn't get to yesterday. And here's part of the conversation that I think is going to be harder for Democrats to make seem okay to the General Electric. I mean, the Democrats biggest problem running against Republicans is that they're their only job is to not be lunatics. And they can't do that job. If the Democrats came forward, and they said, you know, we're going to fix healthcare we're going to respect people's individual rights. We're not going to try and take your guns away. We're not gonna push climate change lunacy on you. We want to fix them aspects of ObamaCare. We will we want DACA amnesty, which I'm obviously very opposed to. But you know, we're willing to do some things at the border to tamp down on this false amnesty claims and also on the legal crossings with the fence. You know, if they just triangulate it a little bit a little bit. I would be worried. I would know that they were probably doing a head fake that they were lying. I'm not saying that the Democrats would cease to be Democrats, but instead of doing that instead of presenting themselves as Becher at governance and more reasonable than the Republicans. What do they do? The crazy talk play four. The plan was what we would call today a domestic terrorist group. Why? Why would we call them domestic terrorist group 'cause they tried to use fear and forced to change political environment? And what was the motivation for the use of fear force based on race and ethnicity? Right. Are you aware of the perception of many about how the the power and the discretion? At is is being used to enforce the laws, and do you see any parallels? Parallels do domestic terrorist group, ice, immigrations and customs enforcement, and I gotta tell you. That's why during the shutdown may be so frustrated all these Democrats who say, oh, the poor border patrol people. They're working without pay immigrations and customs enforcement, they're working without pay. I'm sitting here. I'm like all on a second. Yeah. They should get paid and I feel badly for those families. But they got their their back pay is now secured, they'll be all right. But Democrats are the ones that say that they're acting like Nazis that border patrol is like a bunch of Nazis that ice is setting up concentration camps. They're the ones that undermine the core. Mission of those agencies at the first sign of any political advantage from it. They throw ice and border patrol under the bus so fast their their heads. Don't even have time to spin. And then they wanna be all we're so worried about these about our brave, federal employees. We got to go to a quick break. I'll be back in one minute. I'm sorry. I thought we had a sorry about that team. I was like John what's going on here? Yeah. I'm not done yet. I have not yet begun to radio. So this is what you this. What you've got going on? You have camera Harris who is somebody who just she's just like Hillary, and that she's going to say, whatever she has to say in the moment to appeal the whoever she has to appeal to and eventually, I think it all will collapse the media's gonna try to proper up and hold her up, and and and convince people through all their little propaganda magic tricks that she's a centrist, a technocrat and sterling resume great personal story. The reality is she's a completely. Opportunistic politician who doesn't seem to have much of an of an ethical core in her policies. I'm not talking about personal stuff. And it's just not not a real matchup for the Trumpster. That's the good news for us. But we got more on socialism healthcare, big healthcare. Deep dot coming up next hour. Stay with me.

"So I like that as a skill for him, especially as someone who is as big as he is and still someone who has been able to to penetrate against both the run and the pass while he is again, the more traditional guy. I think the next two guys we're going to get into are interesting because they are little more hybrid. And I don't say that as a bad thing of. But I'm not sure if we're going to talk about them as just strictly interior guys. I think there guys who can play on the interior and on the edge and move moving around. If you're talking about the giants that's great because that's what they want to do with their defensive lineman a have versatility and move them all around the line. So I think the first guy we can talk about going to be reshot Gary from. Meghan. Yeah. Gary got is a guy. He's had a fair amount of hype around him for about the last year. He's a big defensive end. And he's kind of classically built defensive end. If you think of a four three defensive end, he's six five two eighty you know, since we've kind of changed from talking about front seven players as either edges or interior defensive linemen. I list him as a interior defensive linemen because I don't think he has quite that lateral agility to either play from two point stance or really bend the edge as a pass rusher, but he can play up and down the line. He's got a ton of power and a really good burst. Especially for a guy his size. He can't play like to gap. Ing five technique. He could. Play heads up on offense tackle and control both gaps. And that versatility. I think could be intriguing especially to Jane's Becher who likes three-man FRANZ four man front occasionally uses to man fronts or five man fronts. I'm interested to see how teams are going to view Gary as interns of his position. But also whether his kind of ability to do that might have hampered him a little bit in college. I think because he might have just been moved around a little too much of the only played nine games this year. He's going to sit out the peachable as he prepares for the draft. So the amount of time he's gotten to put up volume numbers are not as high as some of these other players, but he only finished the season with seven and a half tackles for loss. Three and a half sacks only nine run stuff's was able to get. One pressures thirteen hits. But those those numbers seven and a half tackles for was only nine runs. Stuff's those those aren't great numbers for an interior guy. But he also did play sometime on the end..

"Is James Becher. And you're listening to giants football on the fan, WFAN and WFAN FM New York. We're back you on cores lie giant's game day. John schmuck with you. I want to remind you that after every game on MSG networks catch. The giants postgame show presented by Mercedes Benz all season on MSG network TV home of the New York Giants and right now let's chat a little bit with a member of the opposition which owned by Dallas Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones Byron thanks for at the time. Today. We appreciate it. Byron let's start with the team first before we get into some of your individual stuff. Obviously a loss in week one. You're disappointed, but the defense gave up only about three hundred yards to the Panthers offensively when you looked at the tape or are you pretty happy with the performance us is put on the field on defense for the most part. But the frustrating thing about it is there's so much more that we can accomplish you get done, and it's small communication errors responsibilities from a couple of guys here and there and. We're looking to shut teams out looking just to have you know team what sixteen points. Points in that. If if it's responsibility to stop them. That's what we want to do. And that's defense with alternate. Now, look like you guys turned it on a little bit in the second half you especially contain can't run the football. How much of that? Was it just spins and how much of that? Do you think was really just the starters? Maybe brushing some Rostov considering how little playing time the starters tend to get in preseason these days. That we made coach good job understand what's happening during the game doesn't accept what he meant adjustment. And took care that issue. You mentioned Christmas shard he's a new defensive backs coach and passing game coordinator on defense. What has he brought to you guys on that side of the ball? And how is he affected the way you guys play? He's a man. Juicy thinks he loves the game. You got the replacement around with that? So he's a special guy, and he brings the energy to the defense building. We've been a blessing to having building so far. So we're trying to get better. But he's definitely definitely Rifai. Byron you were drafted people said he could play safety. He could play corner at the start of your NFL career. You used primarily at safety Powell has the transition gone for you from safety to now a fulltime quarterback. I love the challenge. It's canoe challenge for me. It's something that I've always wanted to go back to and it's been a blessing to play in his style of defense that we are playing press coverage. I'm able to use my long it must be eight and and all that to my advantage. So it's tough. But if it's doing it every single day, it's not going to work hard take care about the Carribean camping throughout the season. You know, by are we actually did an interview with you your rookie season? If. Feels like only yesterday. But now I look at the Cowboys roster on defense, and you're one of the widely vets you guys have the very young defensive group. How much some of the young guys in this group? Still kind of learning coming together and getting chemistry together. And how good can they get as the season goes along exactly at the season. Gold long. That's to experience you can never really replicate intensity. And. And the amount of focus esoteric during a game. The young guys just have to go through that period of growing and growth coming along. He's got the smart, they're bright. They want to get better. And that's the most important part is talking to Fillmore already paying attention to attentive or taking notes last night right questions. And you know when you cared onto the field. These guys are just going to get more experienced on a rope man that's far different tobacco. What has it been like watching Jalen Smith from where he was when he showed up three years ago to where he is now. It's awesome. It's honest. I don't remember those times when he showed up all our vision for being like this and all the guys in an enrollment on team envisioned that. It's hard to think about looking back at that time period when you walked in the door, but he's made a tremendous come around. For that kid. Can you even tell he ever had an injury at this point? Not at all, man. He's definitely. Yeah. He's definitely showing signs of being a great linebacker. All right. Let's talk about the giants a little bit. Obviously. You're very familiar with them. However different ski now. Coach Shurmur you've looked at Amman tape this week Byron, what are some of the things you've seen for the Montana that you know, you guys had to be ready for the slowdown. This giants offense gonna run up back amazing quarterback has been there for forever. Our kids watching the giants play ball. Obviously they have one of the best receivers. In general and our generation. I'll put a lot of things we got our work cut out for us. But that's the fun part. Offense is one of the best of the game. So. And we're looking forward to baron looking forward to senior appreciate the time. Thanks so much. We'll talk to you soon. Here. That's Dallas Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones when we come back. We'll do the roundtable myself. Lance meadow, Paul the Tino on Jeff eagles debate. And predict what's going to happen in tonight's game. We'll be right back.

"That that this is my new bread and butter this is exactly in my opinion what the giants are going to do not to mention like i'm not even saying that saquon barkley is gonna get you know fifteen hundred rushing yards i don't know what he's gonna get he is going to be a yard from scrimmage guy i had one scout around the combine say this is the best college back as a receiver that i've ever seen and not only that but sean payton told me this is the best running back prospect i've seen in twenty five years how many yards from scrimmage does he need to have for us to say after the fact you know what he was worth the second overall eighteen hundreds that's a lot it is you know what that means that means he's eleven hundred rushing and seven hundred receiving which is not unrealistic if he's going to catch sixty balls he's going to get around seven hundred yards receiving so i don't think that's unreasonable at all stats give us another one all right mike i'll start with you with this one then saquon barkley since you brought him up peter and a returning oto beckham junior make the giants a blank team i you know i don't nine and seven yeah i say potential wildcard team so nine and seven same we're in agreement on that chris simms thinks they can make it to the superbowl now i just think he's sucking up to his dad when he says that but he thinks they can become a super bowl team was saquon barkley i think a lot of that depends on the revival of the defense and you know and right now the key guy with the new york giants in my opinion i think their offense is going to be fine too key guy on this team in my opinions james becher because he is bringing a new philosophy a new style to that defense.
