Trevor Noah condemns Trump's COVID-19 Response
"Back to the daily social distancing show and yes, we are still social distancing pretty soon the top of my head is going to be six feet away from my forehead. That's the plan. That's how I'm going to measure my distance from people hey, what's going on becks they s see you know the reason we still social distancing is because the coronavirus is still spreading, and this is thanks partly to people not taking it seriously. So let's catch up in another installment of our ongoing segments the pandemic. I our pandemic coverage, Hicks off in Utah State in desperate need of the l shaped tetris piece. We now know that one of the easiest ways to stop the spread of coronavirus is just to have everybody where a mosque unfortunately telling everyone to wear a mosque is also one of the easiest ways to spread idiocy after more than one weeks in schools have reopened in Washington County Liberty, action coalition hosted a rally in front of the school district building. This morning up to a thousand people showed up saying the children being forced to wear masks in classrooms is illegal and even unconstitutional. Now have gathered here in front of the Washington County. Administration building calling for. The end of a mouse mandate. If we want to wear a mask, that's fine we can take care of ourselves when George Floyd was saying I can't breathe and then he died and We're wearing a mask and we say I can't breathe but we're for story anyway I'll tell you another reason I'd hate mass most child molesters love them God. Damn. These people were crazy. In fact, you know what they should have. Let them storm the school building because maybe they would have accidentally learn something like I'm still trying to process everything that was going on at that rally no matter how many times I watched that video i. still find new things to process. Like that video is the closest thing I've seen to facebook comments happening in real life I like individual freedom wipe people are the real George Floyd. Happy. Birthday Martha Mask wearing was invented by Jeffrey Epstein. Oh and here's another reason it's hard for Americans. To get the pandemic under control even places do have rules for social distancing. This is how some people follow them growing concerns over Cova clusters especially on college campuses in Ohio police cited several people in a house near Miami University during the Labor Day weekend body camera footage captured a stunning exchange between an officer and a student or there's So, you probably know where I wanNA talk to too many people but you know the the ordinances ten people. Yeah. How many people are in the house? Twenty twenty people inside. You Might WanNa start clearing off the I've never seen this before there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for covid. When was this was? A week ago are you supposed to be quarantining? That's why I'm on my house do you have other people here and you? You're positive for Kovin? We WanNA, keep the site open. That's why. We're so screwed. The main part of quarantine isn't about being at your house, my friend. It's about being away from other people so that you don't spread the disease I'm scheduled. Know where this guy puts a condom on his buddy at this point I'm glad it's just corona virus. Can you imagine this dude handling Ebola wait so I'm not supposed to eat a monkey. Because I got to tell you there was some confusion there. Oh and just by the way. Watching this police officers body cam footage was like virtual reality game called white privilege because this kid was clearly breaking the law but the cups tone of voice sounds like he was telling him today specials Hieaux could I interest you and not breaking the law today? Get a few minutes to think it over and I'll come back so. Some people are misinformed some people a crazy and some people are both. People. Like Donald jaundiced trump president of the United States and one man super spreader overnight at a packed indoor rally president trump breaking Nevada's covid restrictions to court voters. In the key battleground state, we're going to win to that speaking to a throng of mostly mask Liz supporters, his first indoor rally nearly three months. The state prohibits gatherings of more than fifty people but trump defiant of the governor comes after you which you shouldn't be doing. I'll be with you all the while those behind the president and in front of the cameras wore masks, most of the crowd did not. But that didn't bother supporters like meal. Christianson who camped out overnight I'm not wearing a mask that's a shows that I trust my president. Okay look. I. Get why trump fan would have trusted trump before. But how do you still trust this off the he admitted that he's been downplaying the coronavirus this whole time I don't get it. I really don't get what do you mean you trust and this is like believing the Nigerian e mail scam off the he tells you that he's a Nigerian email scam although I'm a small time criminal pretending to be a wealthy prince. Will Send me some money. You know what? I liked this guy's honesty I will send him fifty thousand dollars and as for trump. How you call yourself the presence of law and order when you openly flouting the law and not even for a noble reason. No, it's just so that he can spend nineteen minutes ranting about how vegetables invented by the deep state and Hillary. Clinton and this isn't just about breaking the law. What Donald Trump is doing here is actually dangerous. The last time trump held an indoor rally. He lost twenty five percent of his black friends. So there you have it. Everyone from college students to grandma's to the president himself is helping this virus continue spreading. But I guess. That's the genius of America's Corona Virus Response. Unlike other countries that are preparing for the second wave America realized you don't have to deal with the second wave. If you never get over the first.

What are we GONNA do Dr Floyd? And we have to make a pen according to my calculations. Thanks time every. minute.

Rob Knight and the Gnarbox
"It's a quick chat this time with my Buddy Mr Rob night over there he has some experience with a little device call of the NAR box. We're GONNA be talking about that and kind of what his overall impressions are with the device, taking it in the field around the world and. Sort of putting it in interesting situations. Rob Night how you doing man? Hey, man I'm GonNa thanks for having me. Yeah. Yeah. Good to have you. Yeah. We got to Chattan. We you and I got to chat about this thing the non locks, which is which is a little device if people that may not have heard of it. It is a hard drive. This is actually a full computer in here it's going to display. It's got ISO got a battery on their for power in. It's got a input for St Cards and CF cards and I think that's a that's simply on there as well and USB see on there. So you can actually plug another hard drive into this. So it's main purpose and you correct me if I'm wrong because you're more of an expert on this and I am its main purposes if when you're on the go to ingest your files where there'd be video from a drone or still camera or whatever into the device. It does a check some on those files to make sure what it copied over is is there. So it double checks shirts there? And then it allows you using their software because the devices WIFI using their software you can go through and start calling and sorting and labeling and key wording and all that stuff directly within your tablet or your phone while you're still in the field that I get it. Right is that is that what it? Yeah that's about it. I mean in short, it's a little computer. And you use your ipad or your phone as the interface for it. Although version two, which the when you're holding up, it does have four buttons on the on the front that go at the LCD. So you can't operate it without attaching it to your phone or your. IPAD, which I really liked as a big improvement over the version. Yeah. Yeah. It's a cool device in the I talked to will, Afrikaner he's the CMO over there. He was taking me through the device and I mentioned that it feels like its military spec like if something that you'd be issued a military and he said it was actually built to military's Beck. So it is. It is a device that you could theoretically find in someone's backpack in uniform. What what are your experiences with it? What do you think without without me leaving the witness? You Tell Me What what rob nights experiences with the Nar box two point Oh sure well. Like you mentioned it is built like a tank and. There's a few things I love about it since my cameras use SD cards I, think that's great The other thing is it's so well weather sealed that I can actually put an st card in it and close it and it's weather sealed while I'm downloading and backing up my data. That's really cool. I've taken it to places like Peru, February back when we could go anywhere and I'm literally living on a riverboat on the Amazon for a week and I didn't want to take my computer down there. So instead, I'm backing up hundreds of images day using this and plugging in an external hard drive to it. So one of the big differences between this and other similar things is just that as I plug in my hard drive. My little portable drive. This will run the drive and download to it. all at the same time. If I want download a copy to the Nar box and to the external drive at the same time, have two copies. I can do that too. It's. It's very flexible as far as that goes And then you know sometimes you I I don't like to do a lot of work in the field usually especially, if I'm in Peru on a photography workshop the last thing I want to do is take time away from my clients and sit in front of my computer for hours. When I could be. In Peru. So I'm not doing a lot of work, but you know sometimes you get your, you're doing a shoot and you just know you got that one shot. You can use the Nar box apps on your phone, connect the phone to the Wi fi on nar box and and I can download images right into light room I can I like you said you can. You can add ratings that kind thing So if I want to, I, can put things right into light room and they're on my computer when I get home. And that's pretty awesome. What That's been my sort of typical use case I was I did some production work off a friend of mine my buddy Eddie tap on a video production that we're doing and we spent a week. On location doing. Like I was telling you a little while ago before we were recording six hundred, twenty gigabyte as d cards, worth of video in the morning and the same in the afternoon when the light was good and so I would get go back to my hotel room between Hook up the Nar box downloading everything to are are working hard drive. So at the end of the day, everything's all downloaded and I know it's there and we can format guards and start back over tomorrow that was a huge benefit and things. So rugged I can put an D. card. Okay. We're shooting here we're moving to the other side of the location I'm GonNa Plug in Nasty Card, Set I one thing I I should talk about to with the APPS. They, basically, there's so much. It's improved over version one with this that. I, I? I just ended this and does this. it's a colliding new product for I it completely. Yes. One of the things that drove me nuts with the first one is that you have to hook it to your phone or your ipad to work anything.
The Xbox Series X vs. the Xbox Series S: What's the difference?
"Microsoft released the full specs details about the XBOX series s budget console that again is coming in at two, hundred, ninety, nine dollars. They say it will deliver four times the processing power of an xbox One and supports one hundred twenty frames per second and that its using these same CPU as the big boy series x quoting the verge xbox series s delivers four times the processing power of an Xbox, one console and supports. Up to one hundred, twenty frames per second says, Liz. Hammer head of platform engineering hardware xbox the primary difference between xbox series accent xbox series s is in resolution through talking to our customers. We found that many of our fans prioritize frame rate over resolution. So we wanted to build a console that didn't require a four K. TV, and quote that led Microsoft. He use a different GPA in side. The xbox series s to bring the price down one that the company promises is around three times more powerful than the xbox one while Microsoft? Doesn't go into detailed specifics on the GPS becks we understand the xbox series as has twenty. See us at one point, five, five, zero gigahertz. This calculates to around for tariff lots of performance compared to the twelve tera flops fifty to see us at one point eight to five gigahertz found on the larger xbox series X. There's an obvious power gap here but Microsoft is the xbox series s at ten eighty P or fourteen forty p monitors and TV's so you don't need the same GPO power required for things like four K. Gaming and quote.
Doomsday Parents, Chad And Lori Daybell
"Laurie Velo Bouza forty, six year old mother of three married a fifty one year old father of five Chad Day bill. On November fifth two thousand nineteen in Kauai Hawaii. Chad's wife for close to thirty years. Tammy. Day. Bill have been found dead in her home just two weeks earlier. So obviously, they didn't waste much time remarrying. Stunningly Quick Tammy was in apparently healthy forty, nine year old woman infectious training for a marathon. Just, ten days before her death, which was October ninth two, thousand, Nineteen Tammy reported on facebook and the police that masked man had shouted her with what she thought could be a paint gun what's going on there right? Exactly. The other very interesting aspect is Laurie and Chad had picked out and ordered their wedding bands more than two weeks before Tammy Steph. That's right. Shoe on that one for a while right so October fourth to fifth tammy visited her parents Beck in Springville. Utah, where she's from and then a few days later on October nine, a man ski mask was shooting at her so I guess the police decided it was just some kind of prank because she thought it was a paint gun and they never found the guy, but it's very curious. WHOA, it is and it's really just the tip of the iceberg in this really strange case with all the suspicious occurrences just everything surrounding lawyer and Chad, his mess and very suspicious of course. Yes that's an understatement. So Chad Chad Day Bell is lawry's fifth husband. Laurie was born Laurie Noreen Cox June twenty sixth of Nineteen seventy-three in San Bernardino California and she grew up with two brothers Alex and Adam and two sisters Stacey and summer Alex Cox plays a really large role in this whole story so you need to remember him Adam lives in Kansas and he's worked as a radio personality, but he's pretty much out of the whole seen as far as we know so far. Stacy Cox died in her parents home when she was just twenty two years old and this was from complications of type one diabetes lorries remaining living sister Cox shift. Let was one of lorries, biggest defenders until June of this year, and that's when the remains of her children jj entirely were discovered on the property of Chad debacle. Now, people who knew Lori will have said that she really became a person after she became involved with shed she had been considered an excellent mother. And a good friend to many many years ago back in high school Lori was a happy energetic cheerleader at nineteen years of age. She married her high school sweetheart Nelson Jawans. This marriage is over within a year. Then when she was twenty two in Nineteen ninety-five Laurie Mary twenty-three-year-old. William but Sheila, and this marriage was in Travis County Texas. They had a son named Colby in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety six, and they ended up divorcing in nineteen. Ninety eight. So, by the time, she was twenty five years old she'd been married and divorced twice already. See and she has one child, and then in two thousand. One Lori Mary Joseph Ryan Joe Converted to Mormonism, and that was the religion it Laurie had been raised in. He didn't legally adopt coby coby took his last name. and. He and Laurie had a daughter together. That's highly in two, thousand, two and two, thousand, four in August Joe filed for divorce from Laurie. And it was finalized in two thousand five. In two, thousand, six, Joe Ryan filed a complaint with the court stating Lori was not complying with the visitation order. He asked she'd be held in contempt then August two, thousand, seven Joe is attacked by Laura's brother Alex. For. This guy chases show around with stun gun. He tased him twice and he threatened to kill him. Yes. So I'm going to ask probably a stupid question is this because of the divorce or because he took her back to court. I'm thinking it was related to the custody issue because the divorce was already finalized been finalized for over a year. But you know she was also looking at some trouble because she was in contempt of court. She wasn't bringing tighly for her visits and she was keeping tidily away from him. So, Alex Laura's brother was very protective of her and actually seemed obsessed at the time with killing Joe. Ryan the incident happened when Joe was leaving a supervised visit with his daughter Kylie and the attack ended when an eyewitness showed up. So Alex, pled guilty to aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury and ended up serving ninety days in jail, and this was in Austin Texas. But the custody battle between Joe and Laurie over tighly really got very dark at one point Laurie head to install cameras in the children's rooms and in the living room for the court to see what was going on in her house. But no abuse apparently was found from that camera footage but just so you know this was a really nasty custody situation. You're S, and then we have Joe Dying in April of two thousand, eighteen still young man. This was determined to be a heart attack they did not topsy, but then he his remains were cremated. This whole time has custody battle with over Retali- had continued to be ongoing, right? I. Believe he was fifty nine but he was pretty healthy and there were some strange things about his autopsy as well. Roy Yeah now the court documents say that Joe Ryan accused Laurie of parental alienation alleging that he had not seen his daughter for more than a year at one point. And he also referred to a court appointed psychologist who had interviewed Lori. And according to court paperwork the psychologist David, our pool
Finding Your Balance
"Good Morning. We love and I'm here in Crystal Lake Illinois. And wanted to spend a little time with you. Hope Everyone's fine. And Hope you're. Dealing with all the different new things coming up in your life like being students online or live for a combination of the two. Or going back to work or continuing to stay home and work from home. Or looking for a job or Trying to to decide what's the next course you want to take or thing you want to learn online. We have lots of things going on these days and I hope you're finding a way to be. Peaceful with that and have Have some dispassionate equanimity could time to work on our equanimity, right? That's the quality of balance. and. Taking a step back and being able to see things. Without. So much of our self involvement being able to be a little bit dispassionate. Find Balance and everything. So I always like to think of it as back away beck away from Mecca way not not out of indifference at all but out of. That Maybe we sometimes can be too aggressively putting ourselves in the middle of a situation. Really we are more of A. We can be more of a bystander and be more valuable to people in the situation. and. You know that feeling when you when you realize oh I, wish I just kept my mouth shut and not. Made that comment on facebook or not said something that you know that that made the situation not better but probably just. kind of hit the hit something that just immediately. Created. Created. A. A little minor explosion and a conversation or relationship. And sometimes that's because we we aren't able to become have that equanimity at work. You know there's a little. There's a little bit too much of our ego in a situation. So we just need to say something that maybe probably would be better if we didn't say it. I know that's one way I look at equanimity. Does back away? Think about the situation think about it a little bit more. find her own balance with an it without getting carried away by the emotion of the moment. And we can work with equanimity in so many situations and I think it's a beautiful quality for us to develop right now. Because we have a lot of opportunities before we we feel like. We are free from the effects of the pandemic. That's going to be a long time before free from the economic effects and the psychological effects and the physical effects. The way it's changed our landscape just physically the people we've lost. Maybe the people who were recovering from covid nineteen and the the. The. The long lasting effects that they might be having to deal with and how it affects our society in the long run. So develop equanimity along with compassion and loving kindness and. I am so which is no harm. So, we can have our hands full just with. seeing how we can those are the best ways we can be people in this world is to work on those qualities work on a deeper understanding of yourself. And then that's what it all comes back to because we have to know. What our little triggers are we have to know. We have to know about ourself. and. Then we can be more effective in a more Compassionate person for the rest of the world. So. Let me start with my wish. And I think that's good guidance I hope everyone's memorized it. Okay. He working on it if you haven't because it can be there for you when you need it. Or. The Saint. Francis prayer. May I become at all times both now and forever. A protector for those without protection. A guy for those who have lost their way. A ship for those with an ocean to cross. A. Sanctuary for those endanger. A lamp for those without light. A place of refuge for those who like shelter and a servant to all in need. By by means of this meritorious deed, May I never join with the unwise only the wise until the time I attain the Bonna. That close to you because that gives us. Wonderful Advice. And it also gives us a challenge. You know to reach out to be to be able to. See clearly what's going on in the world where we can help

interview With Rik Emmett
"Welcome back. It's Eddie trunk on this week's podcast. Thank you so much for listening We start off as mentioned with Rik Emmett of triumph coming up second and just a bit. It'll be Rachel Bolan of skid row a very, very deluxe expanded double dip addition to great interviews for you this week I. Hope you enjoy him. We start with RIK Emmett right now. How are you rick? I'm Great Eddie how are you? Good how you in Canada how are you home? Yeah, yeah I live in Burlington, which is sort of a western city suburb, of Toronto and It's been great here. Actually you know it's I haven't minded sort of being isolated and. You know it hasn't had too much effect at actually allow me to become a little bit more creative so I've been enjoying myself. Well that's the thing you know all this pandemic time all the artists I've been talking to all seem to have a different take. Some are really chomping at the bit to go out there and do things and others are enjoying the reconnect with family and not used to being home. This long others are taking the time to do really creative things. Right record do streaming videos what what's been the focus for you. In this time I mean you you are semi retired from touring anyway weren't you? Yeah I had sort of stepped back from touring at the beginning of twenty nineteen. So I was getting used to it and I had told my agent. Well, you know I'll go out and try if you want to necessarily have to fly two gigs. But if you put some stuff together that can drive to maybe I'll try some of that and then along came covert thing and those got bumped and canceled and so but I was already getting used to being off the road. anyways. So I don't really miss the road and I mean. I do Miss Playing And and having that I interaction with the crowd and that energy you know but I don't miss you know airplanes and hotels and taxi cabs and all the rest of it. You know a And the thing. That's weird. Eddie like it was almost like a retirement was a great career move for me because. Round Hill records was putting out the triumph stuff said, he would you like us to put a all your back catalog and I went well sure that it'd be great. It's nice to have somebody believing me. So all of the albums that I made after I left triumphed they've just digitally released him and then I was sitting around going I. Think you know I still want record and stuff when I was writing tunes in When I in nineteen, sixty, two, I don the Bob Dylan record, it was just called Bob Dylan and it was just a cousteau Qatar voice voices. You know all my years I've never really done a whole album like that. So I'm going to do a project like that. So I put that out on my website and then I I was. Writing a book of poetry and it looks like a publisher wants to make a deal so that I can do book of poetry and a memoir. So it's like one thing led to another thing about to nosing before I. Knew It. I had like a completely full calendar, and now of course you know I'm doing all of this promos on calling you. What is what is strung out troubadours I saw link for that. What is after the newest thing you're doing? Now Strung out troubadours was a thing. There was a guy named Dave Dunlop who played in my band and he actually went try and fly the reunion Gig in. Sweden in an Oklahoma Day was actually in the in the triumph hand as well playing rhythm. Guitar and Stuff. So Dave and I had a little duo thing like a lot of times my touring and got to the point where I was doing a lot of solo stuff I wanted something else and so I use the piano player for a while and then I kinda got the edge to have a little bit more of a rock and roll approach. So two guitars made it a little bit more kind of versatile and so Dave is the guy and we did it for you and then I said, Hey, you know what? We should do an album together and put it out. We can sell it at emerge table, and so that was the birth of the troubadours and we did three albums. and. Yeah Round Hill bought my rights out to those days still has his side of it. He he didn't sell them. So he stands to make some more mechanical royalty. Whatever there is to be made these days, right Yeah. So I wanNA talk to you. I. WanNa ask you some triumph stuff of course but before. But before that, let's let's let me cover the reason you're calling which you mentioned the release of your albums after triumph ended for you and I think rick that people would probably be surprised to learn how many records there are, and there were a lot of people that sort of. Categorized what you did after triumph as being a jazz guitar, but that's not all you did. You really ventured into a lot of different styles. So for people that especially here in America that maybe didn't follow all that closely some of the stuff you did after triumph tell everybody what you did musically, and how many records there are in the different journeys those records took you on. Okay well, you know settle in folks make yourself a cup of coffee. This is a long story. There there was thirteen that round hill made a deal for and they ran the gamut and when I first got of triumph. So a little bit of sort of ancient history here left eighty eight. I actually made three albums for an indie either had a distribution through universal and in Canada. And those sort of started an evolution or You know I don't know a a mutation change from being sort of Iraqi. Guy To kinda be in a singer Songwriter Guy and that took me from eighty nine through to about ninety five six. And then I sort of had enough. I. I was I mean the industry had changed You know the whole thing of being sort of in an arena rock band. It's kind of converted to an MTV banned through the eighties that was dying off and there was the rise of Nirvana and soundgarden and so radio had gone in a different direction and I try and thing just seemed like it was over for me you know so I left made those three records in there and I got to the point where I went. Okay. This doesn't really seem to be working for me either and it's not really why I left triumph. In the first place I just want to indulge myself creatively artistically and I don't care if I make money or not This is not a question of chasing career. This is a question of sort of. Chasing what art in music and the music is is pulling me towards calling me. You know. So I, one was a classical guitar instrumental record next one in very short succession was a blues rock and kind of a thing because really that was like where I cut my teeth when I was first learning electric guitar was the whole Eric Clapton Jimmy Page Jeff Beck thing these guys out of the yardbirds then back into the Chicago Blues and down the Delta all of the you know the the same path that those guys went soon as you discover them, you go back down the path that they did too. So you know And then the next record was sort of top jazz because that was the next thing that happened in my life I went to college for one semester in Jazz Music Program but at the time, I was heavily deeply into everything from west, Montgomery to Charlie bird to Joe Pass and so Yeah you know swinging and that comes on playing blues and so those were the first three records I made real quick

Is how much money should I be asking for this? Because the attorney said to me that I should get back, at least at a minimum of $3000 that I've already paid. For the car. But I think I should get much more because these people put me on the road in a car that the car fax company who they deal with. Defined as being unsafe and its operation and safety of the vehicle. And so you know that that puts my life in danger that puts the lives of all the people who have rowed in my car for a year in danger and even puts in danger. People who have been in cars on the road alongside of May I think I should be getting more than just would not of money that I paid into the car. So my question is, How much more should I be asking for? Well, unfortunately, because you have an attorney that you've made me aware of now I can't It'd be unethical situation for me now to give you advice when I know you're represented by an attorney. Um, not represented by Mom. Just consulting with him. But he wrote a lot of presented in court. Well, I would suggest you perhaps if you don't If you're not sure about that answer. I know you're calling me as another attorney. To get my opinion. I think that would be a great bargaining position for you to make that claim. Adversely, you know that they put you in danger. And, you know, maybe the public should be aware of their business ethics in practice in the way they do things. And not to put it in a blackmail type of position. But to make it aware that you think The jeopardy. They put you and everyone else and ah is worth The emotional distress this has caused you is worth more than the amount of money that you put in there. I would frame it something like that. I think Yeah, I think I think they should have to pay a penalty. But, you know, I think the attorney should fashion those words that you retain an argument asking for you're willing to settle this matter for X number of dollars. Well, Yeah, I'm looking toward a settlement here, but the attorney has only so far. Ah stated to me in terms of money. Ah, that I should at least get back What I put in which kind of which kind of kind of infers that I should get more, But I'm wondering how much more Because because how much how much more could vary from $1000 to $100,000 it's very variable. How much that more. Ah, quote unquote morning might be Art. So this is not exactly type in my practice area, you know? So I would if I were you. I would talk to another attorney that does litigation to see how they would proceed with this case and what they would think it would be worth and talk to, you know, talk to two or three attorneys to get an idea of how they would proceed in what they think the case would be worth in which he asked for. And then just choose one of the three attorney she would talk to I think you could definitely bargain your position into you know, at least Of why they should settle higher amount of money is part of the argument is just the matter. The hardest thing you might have to do is find an attorney willing to make that argument for you and writing, then take it to court. Yeah, well, I already got the attorney making the argument for me in writing. They sent two letters, but he's only just on what you're telling me. He's he thinks that's maybe only worth 3000. If you think that's worth a lot more just to give yourself peace of mind that I don't know. No, I don't think that he thinks it's only worth 3000. He used the word at least. So hey is looking at. He's telling me the 3000 zoo rock bottom minimum, So in fact, he's inferring that I should get more, but it just never really is indicating to me. How much more All right. But if you ah become unsatisfied with what he's willing to fight for, maybe interview a couple of other attorneys to see if Somebody's willing to fight for Maura and make a bigger issue out of it. Then you're thiss president, Attorney I mean, it's just a thought. I wish you well with it, though. Thank you, Holly. One of what? One Last thing I want to mention is that I'm the senior citizen. Andi. I do remember seeing this Florida Statute 8 25.102 Abuse of elderly which includes psychological injury to elderly people, which I think the state of Florida correct me if I'm wrong. The state of Florida Divine's 65 years of age or older. I happen to be 74. Using that would enter and add more impetus to the case are perhaps it might. Yeah, I'm one of their defenses might be that you know, anybody can look on and get a Carfax report. You know, so They would probably argue you've got the ability to do that yourself. Even though you're 70 for But you know, I don't know if they would use that as an argument or not, but Art..

Traveling To London
"If you're planning a trip to Europe, you may have noticed that a lot of flights in the United States connect through London through. Heathrow airport, and sometimes you're left with an awfully long layover instead of wasting hours hanging out at the airport. Why not head into Lemon for the day we've invited. London guides, Steven Beck and Debra to join us and share their tips about getting into the city to make a damn it, and then getting back to the airport in time for your flight. Stephen, Deborah. Thanks for joining us here in our studio. So. Is it realistic to have a long layover? Let's see. You got a eight hour layover in Heathrow Deborah. Is it realistic to actually check your bag and go into town? Very easy. It's fifty minutes on the P- me underground. To get into central London and it's soon. You've got the the express. Heathrow express goes into. Paddington. Depending. And from there you've got the time outs, fifteen minutes, every fifteen minutes. So four times in our and you're downtown and less than half an hour. And, and when you can go into town, you can go out back the same way and just as reliable convenient. Yes. So Stephen most people would go through Heathrow, but it's also conceivable. You could land in Gatwick, London's second airport and yet because a good connection into London, a similar thing, the Gabrielle Express and that heads into Victoria in some ways if it depends where you want to be in London, but if you wanted to go to Buckingham Palace or Westminster that's even closer. So it takes thirty minutes. Okay. On the fast train and Deborah. No, we were discussing about leaving luggage. And building some time for perhaps maybe a delay. But you know an hour and a half, maybe a couple of hours. If it's got workings, if you allow that on either side and you've got eight hours. Yeah, you could afford in. London. When when you are going back to the airport as an American, especially, you should give a little extra time. I. Know The from the Airports in Europe, you have to go through security hoops to fly to the United States. Yes. Yes. You have to allow time also to get into, there's Gatwick Express but southern rail. One of the other train companies, they run a service into Victoria, which is about every thirty minutes. It's a lot cheaper than the guy he expressing takes about the same time. Okay. So there are ways to get quickly efficiently and economically into London a lot of people are stressed out by Heathrow because it is five terminals I. think generally when you go to and from the United States, use terminal five, is that right? Depending on the airline? Terminal to terminal five or. Four. Okay. So I've been trying from seminal three with virgin in Delta. Okay. If you're flying in and out of different terminals, how tough is it to connect the terminal? It's very easy. Follow the signs. It's really well signposted what about the practicality of your bags if you have a chance to check your bags through, that's the best thing. But if you're picking up your bag, is there a way to lock it up or do you check it onto the flight You can't even check on that early to a flat out. I, don't think they have those baggage storage facilities Bernardo. We're thinking about this and talk about this. Heathrow, at sint pancras up Paddington. South. At. The airport. Don't take it into town. Yes. Yes. Yes. You can pre book as well. Online. You can pre book to leave your luggage. Should save time good tip
Expert Says U.S. Current Trend in Coronavirus Cases Isn’t Sustainable
"With us. Dr. John Wade CI, the professor of the Global Health Programme, professor of health system and policy program. And the director of the Center for Global Health College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. And Dr CI Welcome back to the Mark Mason Show. It's my pleasure to be back with you. Well, I'm glad to hear your voice again. I always use you is kind of our update into the really world of Corona virus. What's really going on and a lot has happened since we last talked. On that the virus seems to be more prevalent than ever. But we seem to be learning to live with it. I suppose one of the virus limits we can live with. I mean, we won't like it. But can we get by at this rate? No. We add a to high rate a TTE this great, many, many stay or counties there. Health care for city would not be able to 15 we We have to bring down because most European and Asian country at much lower levels, so they are able to lead you much higher level of activity, which we still cannot. And so if we maintain this high level or pandemic, it will hurt both our economy and people's life and health, and so we had to do something to bring it down to a much lower level. Wow. I don't know how we do that. The governor's talked about maybe travel restrictions. Is that one possible thing we should seriously look at where maybe people from high incident states are are not allowed to come where they if they do. Come there, quarantined. Well, it is. It's It's a good idea, in theory, but in practice will be very difficult to implement. Because he had to send lots of people to monitor to supervise and that costs money. So are you thinking another lock down or slow down? No, no, I think for the last Upfield. Early June, We duty our 2.5 months left town. And we see the serious impact on Mike, honey, and I don't think al economy can sustain more locked down. What we need to do is to learn how to live. Save it. How to operate our business. I work safety and one particular major. Uh, I know the difficulty but that's very critical measure, not just Oregon. But slowly, 90 states we were not able to implement and that is one of the biggest reason we are in this high level off epidemic. So remember in my early and Evi I mentioned that there are three step process. That's important. The first step is contact tracing. The second step is testing and so We're not doing a superb job, but we have the great improvement compare with March or April in term of the first step. But we still fail on the last step that is after the testing. What do we do with the confirmed cases So far, we only isolate people with moderate to see via symptoms. And completely neglected people with mild or no symptoms, and the latest studies, said just people with mild to know Simpson. They accounted for about 80% of total infection. But this 80% of total infection also, if we don't contain them, they also contribute to about 70 to 80% of new infection. Just think about this way. We pay attention to the Penta pus it with more moderate to severe symptoms contained them. But we let the other 80% continue to spread the virus free tea, and it will be a miracle if we don't have. Ah, hi. Hi. Cases continue to be in this house. How did we get more testing? I mean, we can barely my doctor tells me that he has no more tests because they've shipped him off to Florida and Texas and other states that need him. That's a problem I was comparing with Beck in March or April, Wright had done better dimension. We're not doing a super job during the testing as well, Well, I'm with you on the testing, and they and the containment. It's just a question of Why aren't we doing it? There are multiple reason one if people are still resisting the idea ofthe isolation and quality scene and the other financial Many Asian country. I don't know much about European country mediation country like Taiwan, they when they have a mandatory quarantine, isolation, government pay for the costs and company people. The example of Taiwan in their quarantine and isolation. Everyone who and the quarantine everyday received about equipment to certify us started per day for 14 days. So people who need to be quarantined need to be compensated because they lost income and we're not able to do that. I know we're on our financial crunch. So it's both financial reason but also political social reason, because people are not waiting. Yeah, I would have to be afraid, though. Doctors at the AA liberal Mike what would fake Corona virus just so he could sit at home for two weeks and get paid by the government? But there's you know, there's the question of you gotta have the test and it's got to come back positive. So I'm with you. I think a lot of listeners were with you test and contained testing contain, And maybe that's what they should be trying to come up with. In the way of money in Washington, D C right now, the World Health Organization says We should not expect a miracle where a vaccine is concerned. Are we being spoon fed in folded a cure A vaccine, If you will make may not be what we think it's going to be. So that I have some reservations because we still know ability to about the vaccine because there's no effective action available yet. I think I just saw the news. Russia has a plan to have a effective action by October, and we don't know how safe it is, but I think they're waiting between safe and effectiveness. For the U. S. I think the earliest might be the beginning of next year. And I cannot say anything about how effective it is because we haven't seen that yet. We don't know yet, but most likely given the nature of the disease, even an effective vaccine. The immunity may not last very long. If the image can last up to a year. That would be wonderful, but most likely will be somewhere between six months and 12 months. That means we may need to do more than one dose of

Healing Yourself and the World with Meditation
"Hi Rebecca. Welcome to the House Meditations podcast. Hello, how are you good? Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to come onto the podcast? It's my pleasure. becks as a as a mother of five now a birth Dula and Meditation Yoga Guy You. You teach you write a lot about. Managing the mother lode. In fact, it was the title of one of your books. the motherload, so I'd like to start our conversation there. Okay, about tools. And methods that you teach in these times where? Our anxiety over health, the the the political divine racial tensions are just causing so much stress. And I saw a recent video that you posted Were you spoke about managing our expectations or managing your own expectations? And as this podcast is about meditation about the internal work that we do within the process of Meditation I want to ask you to first define what you mean by. By managing our own expectations. And secondly how we use meditation and contemplation to do that so I'm going to jump right in by making a statement that is incredibly important to me as a teacher as a healer someone who is an activist in the social of political racial justice, arenas citation is a political act so always naming where an idea or a thoughts or a teaching came from so this idea of managing expectations came from one of my teachers. Dr Ron Tonia. Pollens. Who in? A Beautiful Guide for me who I've known for a little while, but has recently become someone I considered to be a mentor, and it was through a personal struggle that she guiding me to manage my own expectations, which is so funny, because I teach about managing stress I, teach about managing like how busy schedules are overwhelmed, but I wasn't really practicing myself for a moment in this in the late so. The So. My practice allays is we'll let me define meditation for you. Really quick is according to me according to sit work as a meditation as a way for me to show up for myself to say hey I. See you. I recognize that you're thinking feeling person who deserves to be heard who deserves to be seen who deserves might time, and it's also a way for me to connect with truth, which is the truth of the moment what is happening energetically for me physically for me and then also what's happening in my environment, so it's really sitting in quiet contemplation for. For the purpose of self reflection, and then also connection, which truth and you know being there, it's a it's an act of self love being there for myself so. When I sit in meditation, it is not to cure anything. It's not to fix anything. It's to communicate with myself so that I can find answers on how to act outside of meditation to find. The cure the remedy or even the method to be able to move through stress and what I had been doing recently was sitting in meditation. Connecting with my truth, and then going out in the world and Practicing something that was outside of my truth, which was trying to change instead of trying to change myself. So I was pro. into this like active space and focused on changing the minds of others. Really investing in the impact of changing others instead of investing in what I can do, and that was leading me to a lot of overwhelmed frustration heartbreak. Really this this deep disappointment, so go back to where you. Can Ask right there. Were you You were deeply disappointed in that? People weren't seeing things the way that you wanted to see them or say things or do things or change in this. In his very divided society that we have right now. Is that all of that? It was this sense of urgency. And not being able to. Not being able to. Deal with the incredible that that sense of urgency was creating in me wall seen people not have that same sense of urgency like not doing what I thought they needed to be doing and that was It's really. It's a practice in self. Defeat is a practice in of destruction, because in not in in. Making my expectations, not managing my expectations meaning connecting with the reality of what I can expect. I was setting myself up for so what I learned. With Dr Franconian what she reminded me of that I already knew was. Not to give up hope not to be pessimistic, not to be cynical, but to understand where my energy should be invested and what I can expect from that investment,

"Just thought this was some old bullshit they were still playing for some reason didn't realize oh this. This is news new? This is what people like now. The video everything about. It's kind of like it's that low fi sound I guess in the video is very looks like the VHS super eight or should probably was. There's two things for me with this song. A mom would not let me listen to it, or she would let me listen to me. Lives whatever I wanted to, but she was like I. Don't like that. That because like he's saying that he's a loser. You, why are you repeating these lyrics? She didn't want you to identify a I. Don't want you seeing some lyrics about being a loser. That's lame Blah Blah Blah. But my favorite thing about a song loser for artists like back when you look through the rest of his career I. Love when Band pop off on songs that they don't i. don't even think really like it launches. Launches their career, but then follows the rock songs with all the generic electronica bullshit that I guess that he wanted to be the whole time I don't know. Do you think he always wanted to be? The future back was at the music that he wanted to be making it just that loser was the song they took off I. Think we're very much looking at a case of failing upward here with this guy's entitled.

It makes total sense that creep came out two years before. Run the. The? Careers of these bands in parallel the song the explodes his career. Literally the lyrics are I'm a loser. Two Years Behind radiohead at all times never quite reaching the pinnacle, which is radiohead forever trying to live in that gray area underneath them loser came out in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four as a single, and then it was put on the album mellow gold, which back made after loser happen.

Is Arne Sorenson? He is the CEO of Marriott international and Arnie. It's great to see you. Thanks for being with us today. Becky you to. Want to set this against the proper backdrop, obviously, the last several months have been incredibly difficult for everybody in the Travel and leisure industry. You are a global company. You've got more than seven thousand properties, one hundred and thirty one different countries, so you've been watching the arc of this as it all takes place, you've had to close properties. You've had to furlough employees. Where are we right now? How many of your properties are actually still shuttered? How many? Employees. Have you had to furlough? How many have you been able to bring back? Less aggression there, of course, the impact of Covid nineteen has been profound on our business. We've seen. By Revenue Sales, at army tells by ninety percent globally starting of course I in China then moving around the world as we got into March. And are low point. We had about two thousand, nine, hundred seventy five hundred hotels that were closed around the world. We've probably reopened three to four hundred of those I. Think when we look at even in the United States. We see the early signs of recovery, although we've gone from something like minus ninety percent revenue, something like minus eighty percent revenue so well in percentage terms. If you think about it from the bottom is up one hundred percent. is still a long long. Before and we suspect it's going to be. A slow climb beck. Levels we nineteen. So that sets the backdrop for what a difficult several months it's been already and how much you have on your plate. Employees are kind of watching this and not knowing what's happening on, either then you have the civil unrest and the riots that have taken place, and that adds to it so as A. What did this mean? Warning label to do. What are you hearing from your employees? This is obviously a just blew latest reminder, a frustratingly long Sharon criminal justice, particularly for for blacks and urban cities in the United States. where! There is unfairness that is profound, a and I suppose the only thing that are is what positive about this is the availability of cell. And the fact that we can see the outrageous behavior that obviously. Killed George Floyd in Minneapolis. Allows US I think to some sometimes. Put aside your search for him big. Unity Instead, say this is a profoundly unacceptable. And start to turn the corner in eight now. What is it that we can do about it? When I blog about this weekend, of course was was quite personal. I woke up Saturday morning and had this on my mind as everybody did. and. This is something we should communicate about. I'm obviously not black leader in a business community him United States. We have a very diverse work group and wanted to communicate with them like the more I think about it. It is not just a question about what we Mary Do, which is really the focus of blog, but recognize that what any individual company can do is simply not enough. We've gotTA. Find a way to. Make a dramatic more progress can. Is Space than any single company? Can You well what does that translate into in real terms? Arnie we, all the conversations are underway in a number of different organizations, so the VRT for Jampel is is talking about fitness a real time as we speak. I think many of us are are using our networks, folks both inside and outside our companies to. Talk about places we can make a difference I think I. Think and must each of us do what we can with our workforce and with our partnerships, unity's where we do business, but I think that we can band together also through outfits like the Bart recognized that we've got to work on criminal justice issues which. Company can't do probably ending together and advocating. Criminal Justice around educational opportunity around access to healthcare around access to financial resources. These are for big areas that. Collectively. We can push for not just. What can we do as companies, but what can we? Help implement in the policy space. To to put this outrageous behavior bindis. SAY THAT! These are real time conversations that are happening with you and your peers at the Business Roundtable How quickly do you think that this is something that can, it can translate into action. We had Randal Stevenson a former head of the business roundtable on earlier this week, and he said that look when any of these big companies kind of put their mind to it, they they can have a significant amount of say in policy in Washington and that we've seen it happen time and time again. For issues that are near, and dear to any of these individual companies, hearts or that make a real difference for business business doesn't work free markets don't work in an environment where a large class of our people are perceiving and experiencing injustice, so we have an imperative to begin to use our muscle and are influenced to begin to affect policy change to address this. That this is something where? This is a moment that all of these companies are going to stick with us and say that this A. An agenda that has to carry down I do I do it again. By suggesting for a second, Bart ought to band together and use its force together. I'm not crying. Excuse the conduct that any individual company will be we will continue to be very active in this space as myriad, but I think collectively would be that much louder and I think the Bart and other organizations will move very quickly and will not let up on this. I think our employees basis demand. I think society demands it. I think fundamental aspects of fairness and the importance of opportunity. demands it and I think as a consequence. Is this event I?

Well what what happened happened. Robert Covington e through awful. It was it was. I think it was Was He plane fourth quarter. He's on the bench and the camera pan by just happened to have in his mouth and I went did. Here's one of the. It's one of those weird phenomenon in life right where you You discover something for the first time and suddenly everywhere like we have those stupid rebel scooters now around on New York. I didn't know that these things had come to New York and somebody pointed out once. Oh yeah those obnoxious rebels because when we talk about the ones you can just hop on yes and all of a sudden once I saw one of now I see them everywhere so last year we had good friends of ours in Brooklyn who had gone to Amsterdam and they brought back the Stroup offals. And it's like this little it's like caramel filled or you can fill with other stuff and it's like two waffles together with filling in there. What you do you take troop waffle? You put it on top of your hot Mug of coffee or tea or whatever and it it heats up up so now it gets all nice and warm and gooey whatever and then you eat the strip awful. I'd never heard of this. I just experienced it for the first time within the last year and then suddenly I noticed like Oh like our Bodega has the Strip waffles. Less dangerous suddenly bleacher report is like stocking them in our in our cafeteria. Really dangerous because that stuff's free and so now I'm watching the game last night. A rubber like wait a minute. That's not is it. So I tweeted about it. And controversy ensued. Controversy ensued Steph. Bondy of the New York Daily News came back with no strings. offals sock and you know the whole thing happened But apparently I've been informed by the twitter verse and now by I sources in the twin cities that there is something else I can't remember the brand but it's actually some sort of like energy version of the stroup waffle so it still looks like a strip waffles. I think it's probably not the sugar waffle but it's supposed to be somehow like your re-energizing Athletic Snack on the bench thing. Okay up there with whatever other stuff that's come out in the lesser. So in his case it was it was like an energy bar. It wasn't like the Stroup waffle like I got from Are People Riding around these scooters in Brooklyn are adults riding around these scooters. Yes yes they get. I don't think I mean like the Scottish headlight Blue Ones. Oh Oh okay I thought you meant like the electric's no not look bigger. Those things are all over San Francisco here in New York has not allowed loud them yet. I'm talking about like the types. I don't think an adult can look anything but silly on on what is essentially a large child's scooter. I just don't I just I'll never. I like helmet on helmet off. I just think you look undignified and you shouldn't do it like you've probably seen this in my neighborhood. There are so many parents and all the kids have their little scooters you get the adult scooters so that you can keep up just run. Yeah just run. You just look like a dope on an adult scooter. It's not it's just a taller scooter. Yeah like they're going to the grocery store and forget it a segue you can't you. You can't look at anything but dumb. Do people still ride segues. They do around Croatia. The tourists will gone segway tours and inevitably inevitably. There jumbled so close together that there will be a a Segue segue collision and they'll both topple over and I will laugh hysterically in their faces about the. That's what you get your writing in close proximity to other freaking segue the subway riders and it makes a noise like they hit each other. It's noisy they clatter it's great. At least the scooters will take up less space on the sidewalk so yeah but you know when we were in San San Francisco. I think even for the finals walking around like they're just like just stretches of them. Were just laying all over the place because those pick them up. Yeah you up you pay new. You Commute to work. You know the ones. I'm talking about like this. This little moped thing now. These things are everywhere then the new scourge of New York. They haven't come do. I have not seen them in mining.

"Enough next. Let's go on to talk about two major early season stories and I wanna Wanna see your temperature on them Howard Beck of bleacher report of Brooklyn. Do you gardens now do. Do you believe Andrew Wiggins I think I do. I don't WanNa get taken for a ride here here. I don't want but you know what I was watching them last night. He doesn't. He looks like a different player. Not just shot selection not just aggression going to the hoop. It's not just defensive attentiveness. He's smiling a lot like he looks happy. He looks comfortable like they. Don't say the word joy don't you dare say joy. I said happy and comfortable Canton. The joint wait. Why are we striking joy? His joy as joy is like cultures too much has been said too much fair. I mean I'm not buying okay. We look across the board in points. Rebounds Cysts Affect Field Goal percentage like. They're all career highs that those are those are all good as GE steets pointed out a tweet There was like a eleven game span. I jotted it down. He tweeted this. There's eleven games span. The first one eleven games of two thousand sixteen seventeen scene when he was averaging twenty seven point game with splits a forty nine fifty to seventy five so he was basically say. That's Canada on Canada violence right there. This is Andrew against against from skeets as I expected Canadian propaganda. That was like a it was. It was his Roger. Daltry won't get fooled again. tweet going old school so I like I. I get that I get the cautious like pump. The brakes even in Canada but it the timberwolves look like a team. That is I can't say enjoying because there's joys in the middle of enjoying sure all right they're enjoying who they are The there is this there seems to be a palpable connection between Ryan. Saunders and this young group They've got good players around him. That I I. I like what they're doing with all these these Long Wings things with Covington and Kover and Wiggins You there's two kinds of underachieving when you're young player in this league right or two kinds of a i. Is this guy going to be better than playing right now. Can he pull out of this If you're a guy who has the talent. But you just don't know what to do with it. That that was where wiggins was trending right all this natural athleticism and size and ability and he was hyped. From the time he was like fifteen years older thirteen whatever the makeup was all there and then it was all like we'll do you. Do you know what to do with it. And then there are the guys who are just they they just may not have it they just they'll does either. Never learn to shoot or they'll never have the the the the athleticism or the or the whatever wiggins already had all the other stuff that you need and it was just a matter of putting together right or channeling it in the right direction making smarter decisions with the ball taking better shots. And that's what he's doing right now. So is this sustainable yet. If cut out a ton of your mid range and you're you're when you're attacking more you're driving more. I looked some of this up. He's like twenty third in the NBA. Right now in drives per game at a thirteen point eight a game he was at seven point. Wait nine per game in sixty nine th last year. So he's driving more I don't think he's getting more free throw attempts as a result he is. He's he's taken the ball toward the rack more often. And and if you look at his splits in terms of where he shooting from it he's he's way down in these sixteen feet to to the three point archies way down ten to sixteen feet like he's making smarter decisions decisions with the ball and so yeah that's stable just don't revert told that habits the thing that I'm most curious about is the playmaking because this this this balloon and assists he's up to three point. Six per game for the season is like five five and a half in this. This was last five six games. Whatever it is the best play making his has ever done the wolves going four out and really five out? If you include towns. His made playmaking much easier for everybody because the reads are just easier. There's there's no bodies cluttering the lane the easiest assist to get in the NBA is dribble round. Pick get like north of the foul line kick out to an open shooter. That guy makes a shot. That's that's it's good. It's just not that it's not by MBA centers not like advanced playmaking. He's getting a lot of that And he also racked up these assists until last night with teague enable hurt and he was kind of the defacto point guard. That's like a perfect storm of you are going to pile up assists by the away some of these assists. I went back and watched just because I I'd seen the wolves last three ends at NC. Last night I was I. Let Me Watch wiggins ball screens and assists. He got an assist I. I wonder what happened to these assists. He got an assistant. I checked the play by play log. It was lauded as an assist. He entered the ball to Navan land. The Post Nova only only dribbled five times and made a jump Hook and Andrew wiggins got an assist. I assume that those are quietly rescinded and we never hear about it because that's not an assist that's just the different. That's probably why that stuff goes on a lot in this league. There's somebody else was pointing one of these out with Lebron. Lebron has had some everyone has some but this one was like especially egregious alike. You and I could have thrown this past. I will also say though there was at least one play last night maybe two were wiggins like was like threading the needle and like like like really nice passes not just the kick out to the open shooter but like on the move guy cutting towards the basket kind of me the biggest change has been and and they were all linked together. His handle is better and you can see he has a little nifty ineligible. where he he uses it to both throw his own defender off balance before four going around to pick so he gets even bigger headstart or sends that guy like smacking right into a pick or the big guy dropping on the pick and roll? He'll just get right around him with Algebra and go to the rim. His handles better and because his handles better he's setting himself up to have more space to drive in easier and more passes available to him That's that's legitimate. I do think he's a little craftier. He has a little more change of pace. Like it's not. It's not close to elite but sometimes they'll slow down with the ball. Aw almost get his defender on his back and like scan around a little bit which you never used to do now most of the time. He's still taking floaters out of that. Which is fine And so I he's he's making mostly paint by number passes with some of more advanced like slingshot to the corner that you already do every once in a while even even like bad Andrew wiggins would do something on a pick and roll be like. Oh my God I want that player. What where's that guy? Why does he show up? So He's definitely craftier. I just WanNa see if the passing really sustains I think it will for sure sustain and the four out system helps us to he just going to the rim as you said like. He's just not he's not mhm taking mid-range shots hardly any anymore and he's not particularly artful going to the rim but he's super athletic and so he just like when he sees a big guy backpedaling or standing there he just kind of goes Ataman jumps and like his elbows or in front of his face and like some stuff happens in the ball goes in. It's not particularly graceful. But it's working. He's I guess I'm somewhere in the middle where he's demonstrably better like it. This isn't just a fluke. Ten Eleven Games. He's a better basketball player. He's a craftier smarter basketball player. I'm not ready to say. He's like completely reinvented. And what is whatever people most optimistic projections. I'm not quite area but he's better and I'm interested. I'm interested now for sure. Especially because he was on that track of you know comes into league with supreme amount of hype again. He was he was a guy who was on the cover of magazine SL when he was fifteen. Whatever he comes in he supposed to be the next Lebron or the next somebody? You're the number one overall pick and you put up numbers and there's a certain amount of hype that goes with that and it's not that efficient ads fine hill you know. It'll get better over time. And then two three four years in and especially with all the the different ways we have a breaking down a player now with with analytics and tracking and everything else and you start to say He he seems like kind of an empty numbers guy empty calories guy and it sticks and he's in his sixth year and you know he's still he's twenty four hundred twenty five in February. He's still young enough that a light bulb or two can go on. But when you're six years in people start to think that this is just who you are and guys have it clicking at different stages and when you're the number one overall pick with all the scrutiny that goes with that and all the expectations and the contract that is a much harder horder thing to overcome and I love nothing more than a good redemption story and so if a guy is on the verge of is flirting with you know because he's the number one pick you start having the the bust word thrown around if you're flirting with that and and pull back from the edge and have the light bulbs go on and play a better smarter version. One of yourself you don't have to. You don't have to become the next Lebron or the next to anybody else. But he could become an all-star still he could become a really really good player in this league and that alone I think think is a great story. Yeah it'll be interesting to see how he looks with teague back fulltime and just sort of like what is he on a really good team I. That's that's a question. I don't think he's answered this year. Like what is he have to see how he sustains but like when he's not on a really good team is not gonNa have the ball in his hands this much he may end up having this much on this team. Because Jeff December day more But it net required in that touches on he shooting thirty six percent from three and looks more comfortable. Is that real. Is he going to commit to being at least an average defender which he's been this year if that's real and you have better ball handling and a better feel for the game game..

"And now the welcome to the low post hosts PODCASTS. Live from a small studio in our seaport facility in New York City New York where we are about five hours from tip off of the Porzingas Bull. God knows what is going to happen by tomorrow morning when some of you listen to this podcast in an honor of the Porzingas bowl it is time to say hey the three most important words in niche NBA basketball podcasting. What a back? What Zach Wow this is this is different. I'm disoriented. This is very sorry. I'm used to being in your your spacious cavernous studio on the upper west side and no longer exists. It's gone on it's gone it's gone. Wow wow poor went out for the old studio you know what else might be gone pretty soon. Wow look into that segue By the way I'm going with PORZINGAS PALOOZA as opposed to pushing his bowl. I like a good Palooza. I just like bowl because you it's like it can also be toilet bowl like like it also could be a it also could be used to call when the nets and the Knicks. Were both bad. I would call that game the toilet bowl. Yeah appropriate So you you were on the Knicks. Speak for how long. Seventeen thousand years It only felt that way the better part of nine years I it was eight straight I went over to the the nets for their debut in Brooklyn for a few months times one and meet it too because it was a moment a momentous event to have sports pro sports back in Brooklyn and then about halfway through through the season people got bored of the nets and the Knicks were on their way to to what was at As we now know their best season in a twenty year span the fifty four one year and so I went back so The better part of nine seasons Yeah well here we are. Do you feel like you've never left. I mean I never left if New York so like the the Knicks are never far from my my my gaze I guess or You said that you and I we we live here. We are surrounded by tortured Richard Knicks fans. which is a redundancy in itself because all knicks fans are tortured? So let's let's discuss the KRISTAPS Porzingis game on January thirtieth of this year. The Knicks traded kristaps Porzingis. Tim Hardaway Junior Courtney Lee in. I think that's it because I've stopped carrying at that point just to the Dallas Mavericks for her to future first round draft picks Twenty Twenty One and twenty twenty three Dennis Smith Junior. Who you know? It's he's gone through some personal tragedy but before and after that he just looks like a completely broken basketball player and Wesley Matthews once. Nicole is a neck and the Andre Jordan delete recruiter recruiter for Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving who helped recruit them to the other team in New York. Now porzingas plays the next tonight. Let's also review this. The Knicks are two and nine they are the worst team in the NBA. The warriors who are A. G. League team with with a couple of good players and after loss number I believe seven of of those nine Or eight of those nine Steve Mills and Scott Perry. The President and general manager of the Knicks respectively held an impromptu or were coerced into an impromptu news conference in which they said why are we just felt it was time to address. You guys the media Ten game mark a set to a temperature take. I hope they do it. Every ten games gas twenty game mark. Let's do a temperature. Take which certainly seemed like a the coaches next. If things don't change press conference what are we to me. I don't even know where to go. I like what are what are you. What are you expecting tonight? What are you expecting going forward? Forward how did we get here. I just don't even know where to start. Oh I'll let's start with that press conference because if there's nothing else that we've learned about the knicks over the last five to ten years especially it is that they don't do press conferences. They don't do access. They don't do accountability. They don't talk whether that Steve Milton. Scott Perry whether whether it was Phil Jackson whether it was Glen. Grunwald go back to Donnie Walsh. Who talked to US almost every day? A period that I lovingly called glasnost because it was the first first time that the knicks actually were accessible. Donnie Walsh and Mike Dean. Tony came to New York and acted like their normal selves and operated the same way that they had with prior franchises were they. They were successful and talks to the media so on the record sometimes off Chitchat. Whatever they were accessible in this era or every era since then the Knicks Knicks especially at the front office level? They hide ownership doesn't talk. GM's and presidents don't talk except when they have to couple times a year. preseason maybe if they make a trade maybe if if they make a draft pick other than that they're not checking in at all now you might. You might bump into them somewhere in a back hallway and have a conversation and they do that. They don't talk on the record. They're not accessible. They don't talk about the Knicks. Were the only team in the NBA. Let me point this out the only team in the NBA did not have a single president. GM or head. Coach coach addressed the media in a meaningful way during the entire twenty. Twenty twenty twenty two thousand nineteen getting ahead of myself off season. They struck out. The issued issued a bizarre statement on June thirtieth would not talk the entire summer so this is not a a a a a group that is usually compelled to speak publicly unless unless they are compelled. Let's compelled. Yeah so I'm going to assume with a very high degree of certainty that Steve Mills and Scott Perry spoke the other night right because Jim Dolan had one of his meltdowns and told them go. Do something go say something. Yeah I think all the reporting is indicated that all the reporting I've done is indicated that that was a JD. Eddie and the straight shot production and it needed a musical accompaniment and so for years and years and years you would you would you. I would of this phrase. You would other this phrase Knicks fans. What are their utter this phrase? Can we just be a normal team and that usually meant instead of trading a future first round pick for Andrea Bernini who everybody knew was bad. Everybody knew was bad. It wasn't like he was still frisky. At that point. He was bad is a bad basketball player. You be normal. Meant how about we stockpile draft picks how `Bout we don't throw ourselves at every fourth year star free agent. WHO's GONNA put us in cat prison? How `bout instead of using the Amnesty Provisions on Chauncey billups in some sort of bizarre move and we have just waved him instead of guaranteeing his contract x. days before we use it on a Mari Stottlemyre who's broken And to the Knicks credit credit. They started to do stuff like that under the Phil Jackson which I think largely did a bad job but they would acquire extra second round picks here there. They would acquire extra assets here and didn't trade any away. We'll give credit if nothing else gives Phil Jackson Credit for one thing under his administration for look at last accept trade. Anyway I only meaningful like Antibi- meaningful. I mean gene moves. The needle changes your life. Changes your franchise. The only one of those they got everybody went out of their way to immediately by by talking publicly about maybe trading amid taking agents that we we don't we don't have to rehash What did what did with PORZINGAS? Who is not blameless by any means in what ended up being what did Gwyneth Gwyneth? PALTROW's call it a conscious uncoupling. I think KRISTAPS Porzingis and the Knicks had a conscious uncoupling That was how she wants to rebrand. Divorce it's a conscious uncoupling sounds Nice. So here's what normal team does a normal team on June thirtieth after not getting Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving three three months after your owner essentially told the world we are getting Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving without saying those names. You don't release a statement now notably. That statement was not an apology. It was framed by us as an apology. US The media if you read it it just says we understand why some Knicks fans are disappointed. We remain excited about Blah Blah. Wasn't an apology even if it felt like when it wasn't an apology but a normal team doesn't do that. Normal teams was just security. We did we say nothing. We just go out and recover and do our job a normal team. When you're two and eight you just say nothing? You just say nothing you get in your foxhole you figure out a way to make it work or not make where you have meetings about. What do we do if this continues? Who's what's trade but you you don't send those guys out to to the media because you look like idiots and by the way that statement may not have been an apology but because read like one? Guess what it statement. You shouldn't have made on June thirtieth. We get to throw it back doc in your face every time you say we had a successful summer we got the guys we wanted to know. You really a normal just say like David Griffin. What are the PELICANS? Two and eight something like that. Griffis not holding press conferences reassuring the fans. It's like even if you think that that's an appropriate Response and sometimes it is. Sometimes it's called for you. Don't do it ten games into a season it sounds panicky. It looks panicky. It sends the wrong message. It sets the wrong tone. Look at what the coverage has has been every day since then. Everything is about. Phil's is on the verge of being fired every they telegraphed panic. They telegraphed complete. Just panic. Anik all it did was raise the temperature and what you should do in that kind of situation if you have any hope of getting out of this is to tamp down the temperature. Don't don't raise it. But that's that's what happens when you have attempts owner as Jim Dolan is and so I should take this moment to make this point because it comes up all the time. Same Knicks fans who are still kind of clinging to the idea that they that they have figured out that they are doing things differently. That Jim Dolan has finally gotten out of the way and is not meddling anymore. This is meddling folks when you call your president and GM in at halftime and rim them behind closed doors and then send them out at the ten gay mark to try to to calm the waters but instead actually royal the waters more that is meddling that is an owner who is still screwing with basketball ops and there are a bunch of other things I could get into about why. Why should never be absolved everything that goes on still goes back to him? Do not try to tell me that. He's not still their core problem and to your point. What do you think the players in the League are doing when Steve Mills and Scott Perry give that press conference when Scott Perry looks like he'd rather literally suffer diarrhea to Houston to run to the bathroom in the middle of the press conference? It was a hostage. Video admit was missing was a little sign that said help coat in coded language the rest of the players the people you are reportedly trying to court to come play on. Your team are doing the same things we're doing. Yeah they're laughing. They're you're watching twitter. They're looking at all the funny memes. That are going on the jokes there and this durant came out and said the knicks are cool like the like the players just like you and I are like what is wrong long. What is this circus? That's happening. The players are doing the same thing. I'd Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson who their own a very cool podcast. Now going on showtime they came on my podcast last week and and what I wanNA unprompted I asked. I said who you know. You guys were link for longtime. Give me your best and worst franchises I was not trying to set them up by the way to bash the next. But that's where it went for both of. They both lifted the Knicks and they both pointed to ownership as the primary cause and his canter. Of course we know how he feels about. He was my podcast. You know month or so ago. He said that's the the reason that they didn't get free agents this summer. Kevin durant without saying it kind of said it I mean points Dolan specifically but he said I mean we have all the evidence in the world to show that this is not just a media. Creations is not about us. This is about that. People.

"So Lucan English teacher in the plaza dome. Becks? Begs the question does that mean dog should be allowed in bars or something, and it doesn't mean to raise the question? It's a logical fallacy, but go ahead. Well, I think the answer is. Yes. How many more would you have? And how. How the answer is a bunch. I mean, if this trend that we see now of like, oh, we need to have champions. He's super fights of champion versus champion. Of course. We would have seen a lot more. I think for example, GSP's someone that comes to mind that could have gotten, you know, the, although he didn't come. I guess jam champ. Well, he didn't have to belts at the same time. But if you would have had the chance while he was welterweight champ to go up to eighty five. I think he would have had a nice shot of Anderson maybe same thing with with you know, many other fighters as well. And are they in a different league than other fighters? That's that's the real question. How much weight do you put in the champ champ in a way, I do feel like it's ways easier to do one fight up away class. And then get a belt there, then say like the Johnson go eleven was eleven or twelve consecutive bouncers. Belem brio that to me I hold in high regard. But let's face it. You know, having to belts around. It looks cool. It's shiny. It's you know. It's it's cool. So yeah, it's a weird one. I think what it's really going to make the difference is like, for example, like have someone like just like long reigning champion Dimitrius Johnston. And then once he's Weber wiped out all of these tenders, and then go up and get the belt there. Then I feel like that'll be like, oh, you know, I opening as far as getting the belts. I feel like I it's it's very doable in I'm not saying it's easier, but it's very doable. Without clearing out your division. It's more like a popularity contest. You're super good. I'm super good. Let's fight make a lot of money. I'll take your belt away. Then I'll fight someone else. A super good like it's a little bit about that. And there was a lot of opportunities to do that. But it's the one thing that I do commend Bella or four is that because there's the tournament style you really do eliminat- eliminated. Eliminate and get there, and it's very clear, and we keep talking about this. Because there isn't there is that. But there is. A clear version of that for built or later this month rhyme data's going try to be the champ championship when he goes up against fatal, which should be kind of interesting as well..
