Coronavirus Is Surging In The US
"One, But however you define it. Corona virus in the U. S is surging. Some parts of the country air passing more restrictions to try to combat the record number of cases this as we have yet another Corona virus outbreak in the White House. NPR's Alison Aubrey is with us now. Good morning, Alison. Good morning, Rachel. So when we say the White House we mean in the orbit of Vice President Mike Pence, several aides to the vice president have tested positive for covered 19, including his chief of staff. Nevertheless, the vice president decided to keep traveling to keep campaigning. What's the reaction been to them? You know, the decision to keep his travel schedule intact was made in consultation with the White House medical unit, the spokesperson said. Yesterday and pencils office says this is in accordance with CDC guidance for essential personnel there, basically making the case he has Essential work to do, including on the campaign trail. But public health experts Rachel are really questioning this definition. Here's Josh Sharfstein of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He served in the FDA under President Obama. The vice president should be limiting interactions with others because he could be harboring the virus and he could wind up becoming infectious. And so if there are essential activities that he needs to do in person, he should take extra precautions to do those, but otherwise I think he should be staying at home. Especially given around the country, including places. Pence is scheduled to travel such as Minnesota. The viruses circulating widely, right, So let's talk about that. Alison. What do the numbers tell us about the virus right now? The U. S has been averaging about 68,000 new cases per day. This is about a 30% increase compared to just two weeks ago. In recent days, new cases have reached record levels in several states, Utah, Tennessee, Illinois in Chicago over the weekend. Stronger restrictions took effect of bars and restaurants must close earlier in the evening. This is part of a curfew in the city. Other parts of Illinois have stricter rules, too, including new limits on the number of people allowed together and Rachel. They're certainly a lot of reminders around the nation to stay. Vigil eight, right? Hospitalizations from Cove. It have been on the rice too. I mean, does that mean we're likely to see more fatalities in coming weeks? You know, probably there are still a lot of people dying about 775 people per day in the U. S. On average. That's a lot lower than the highs of last spring. Part of this can be explained by the increase in cases among younger people who are less likely to die. But Rachel there's also been an improvement in treating people in hospitals. Physician Anish Mata is an infectious disease expert at Emory University. He is also a principal investigator for the H M Death Severe trialled at Emory. Last week, the FDA gave this antiviral drug full approval. Red death, severe reduced recovery time to 10 days for 15 days and also importantly, run desecrated treated patients had less use of mechanical valve leaders and other advanced oxygen's airport techniques. Compared to patients who didn't get room disappear. Now it's important to point out Rachel. This is not a home run treatment. It hasn't been shown to significantly prevent deaths among very sick patients, but it does have some benefits and Allison doctors now have other treatments they can offer as well as from desperation. That's right. Doctors have more tools in the toolkit. Now they have You know steroids, such as Dixon Math Zone better information about when to put people on blood thinners. Overall, the death rate appears to have dropped. In fact, a new study that included an analysis of thousands of hospitalized patients found that at the start of the pandemic patients had about a 25% chance of dying. Now they have an 8% chance. So still high, but definitely improvement. Yeah, definitely So younger people, you know, you mentioned more younger people have been diagnosed with the virus. So as we start to think about Thanksgiving Is there any way Tio Tio ensure that college students don't bring the virus home as they leave for break? You know, if you have a college student coming home to you find out if they're being tested, many schools are offering or even requiring an exit test or a departure test. Just before students depart for Thanksgiving break. I spoke to David Paul Thiel, He's a professor at the Yale School of Public Health about this He says. Of course, it's easy to identify symptomatic people. But this isn't good enough. I'm worrying about the student who feels just fine but who happens to have been exposed recently and who could be heading home to visit an elderly relative. And so we don't want to be sending little ticking time bombs home for Thanksgiving. I completely agree that we need to have everybody tested within 72 hours of departure. Now. Not every school can manage this given the cost. But many campuses are offering departure test, including big schools like Ohio State and many small liberal arts schools, too. During such as families that have college age kids either, right? I mean, my own family. We're trying to figure out what we do anything. We're all trying to figure this out, right? Everyone started figured out. So what can you tell us of this boy now, Zim? Well,
"Org. How are you guys doing this morning? I'm much better now that I'm not. Blurry? You.

So Am I gonNA waste of buck on out and do see if it works. All right. So. Big Show today, I had the most colossal day in in in in the world ever had to move my daughter to one of the big schools in the state. So I did that while I was there popped a tyre on campus. So had to pull over the road it only one hundred and thirty eight degrees with no trees but I did change the tire into the spare. So this this took me a moment and wore me out because you know on modern cars, they put little tiny tiny Jacks in there you know to Jack up the car. So it's just that much more difficult. Anyway no problem got done. Got Back up on the road and home and drove. Driveway and everything was wet
A look at cities seeing police budget cuts amid crime surges
"It's a turbulent time fall, the anti police protests turned violent and a wave of shootings in many big cities. It's just painful. His horrible New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, we've been put through hell in the city. Everything fell apart simultaneously because the Corona virus there's about 400 more shootings this year in New York, compared to this time last year with atleast five people killed over the weekend, A number of gun arrests have been going up steadily over the last month. The NYPD is working more deeply with community members and leaders. They will turn this time. Other cities have also seen a spike in murders and shootings, including Chicago, which also had riots and looting. Alderman Raymond Lopez told Fox the fear is spreading. The anxiety is spreading, and we're seeing individuals who used to see the downtown areas like the crown jewel of our city. Now wanting to leave. Now, all that unrest has more people arming themselves. Gun sales soared 145% in June 135% last month, the firm's small arms analytics and forecasting foot sales of two million Meaning Americans have bought more firearms so far this year than all of 2019, and that makes sense to John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center. And one night Portland had head over 69 11 calls that the police had ignored. He also has a book, gun control myths. How politicians the media and botched studies of twisted facts on gun control. You have across the country police being ordered to stand down. You have cuts and police budgets and place like New York. You've had the whole department inside the police department disbanded. You know, at the same time you look across the country and their jails and prisons, and they're releasing large number of prisoners in Los Angeles and San Francisco. You've had about 50% of inmates and jails being released. That's not uncommon. Those money Jails and prisons across country which have had between a third and half of their inmates being released. So it's not surprising that we have this concern for people's safety. We're not normal times will deal with the krone virus that you mentioned. There were already many cases where police departments were ordered not to respond to calls. And now, with riots and police being overwhelmed. That's gotten even worse. And the it's important that people do. The safest course of action is to be able to go and protect themselves and heavy a gun turns out to be the safest course of action, particularly for two groups of people, the most vulnerable people in our society. People who are relatively weaker physically women and the elderly on people who are most likely victims of violent crime. Overwhelmingly poor blacks who live in high crime, urban areas, a lot of these gun control laws, specifically poor minorities and even many times middle income minorities. From being able to go and get guns to protect themselves, And there's no reason why you should have that type of discriminatory lawn effect. When you're dealing with the rise in gun sails there. People have already said there are too many guns. I mean in Chicago. That's what has been talked about. There's too many illegal guns out on the streets, so adding more guns, which obviously are legal. How does that solve the problem, right. But the problem is that you have drug gangs and criminals with guns, not enough law abiding citizens with guns and the problem that you have to deal with with gun control laws as if they primarily disarm law abiding citizens relative to criminals. Look, the major source of illegal guns are drug dealers. Uh, drug dealers have lots of guns because they have very valuable property. It's not like a drug dealer. Khun, Go to the police and say Look, this other dealer Stoller drugs. Can you help us get them back? They have to go and set up their own little militaries in order Protect that property. You know, if you think, ah, you're going to be any more successful and getting criminals, stopping them from getting guns than you've been able to stop them from buying illegal drugs. You know good luck with that. But You know, I give you a simple example. Every place in the world that's banned either. All guns for all handguns has seen an increase in murders. But at the same time, John There are people who are from other countries because it shake their head at the number of mass shootings that we have in the United States. We have far more of these mass shooting events than another well what other mass shootings are similar to what we've had in the last 10 years in the US, I mean, France, for example, has a per capita rate of fatalities from mass public shootings. That's 50% 111% higher than the rate. States. They they have events like we had in Las Vegas or in these schools have people know about the New Zealand mosque shooting last year, But do you know that within less than 24 hours of that there was a big school shooting in Brazil, or there was a mass public shooting that occurred in the Netherlands thes things just don't get news coverage and when they do They're usually in the back of newspapers. Way recently completed a study where we looked at all the mass public shootings in the world. They using the FBI definition of mass public shootings were four more people are killed in a public place not involving some other type of crime, like robbery, or, you know a gang fight over drug turf to get it exactly the type of case that you were talking about, like the Las Vegas shooting and the Nine states made about 1% of the world's shooters. Um, even though we make up almost 5% of the world population, and many of these countries have extremely strict gun control ofthe France. ER has, um uh, you know, band semiautomatic guns here we are. Jonathan Democratic Convention this week, and gun control will certainly be an issue brought up. If Joe Biden war to win, and if Democrats were to control Congress, would you expect a renewed push for stronger gun control in 2021? I think the future of private ownership of guns is more steak now in this election that we've ever had in any past election if they get rid of the filibuster. If you have 50 votes in the Senate, a CZ well as Kamala Harris to go on, break a tie. You're going to be able to pass. You know anything they want to pass on. One can just read the Democratic platform draft to see how they're talking about everything from licensing of registration of guns to banning Large segments of semiautomatic guns to make it more costly in many other ways, for people to be alone guns to having lawsuits against gun makers and gun sellers whenever their guns are used in the commission of a crime or used improperly an accident.
Uncertain Future for 2020 College Football Season
"Future of the 2020 college football season is in doubt to Big 10 and Pac 12 conferences announced their schools will not play. But as a local impact, it would be hypocritical for schools, tohave remote classes in life football. That's the feeling of same chance sport management Professor Glenn Curse ner. It just speaks volumes about how Those students were treated completely different than the student body at large, so students have the players they can't help generate $100 million a year for the big schools. What $100 million allows them to do is to subsidize all of their other, Kirshner says. Successful programs help schools attract new students.
Players unite in push to save college season, create union
"A lot of athletes and right now a lot of college a lot of kids in college who would say that they want to play and wouldn't necessarily think it through or think of everything that would have to go into then being able or being allowed to play. And you know, I I understand because it came up a little bit earlier, the whole unionizing of college athletes. It's look, I played on a college football team at the F C s level, right? So we had about I think it was like 60 on scholarship. You can't get 60 guys to agree on nothing. You just When you think of when you think of unionizing at the NFL level you're looking at about 2000 people. Think of it. You've got what, 85 on a roster and let's just say for the big schools. It's 100 And you've got what 16 teams in your That's s O basically unionizing. The players in the NFL would be like trying to unionize all of the players in the A. C. C in terms of Around the amount of people that you're looking at are talking about and then in different parts of the country, and everybody's see The problem with college football is and even the players do get into this a little bit. Everyone is in for their own best interest. I mean, I give Trevor Laurence credit. He may not be the guy because he's going to be the number one pick regardless and play down this year. He's still going to be the number one pick in the draft, but he's out there saying that he wants to play. He He would be one who could say Hey, yo, man, Good. Whatever's decided, Okay, and then I'm out this piece and he didn't have to worry about it. He seems to be one of those that's pushing it. I think it's really tough to get all of these guys to agree on everything. And that's why the union mean the fact that It's on ly right now. What was the letter in the players? Serena was the players from the Pac 12 in the big 10. I do believe it, Wass. You couldn't even get all of them together to put their name on that. That piece there was on the player's Tribune. That's what this makes this fascinating story on a lot of different levels because there are a lot of people that air complicity in college football being in this spot and again, But business is complicating things as much as covert is.

Coronavirus out of control in US
"The United States has become the global epicenter. After the initial shock and the lockdowns that followed. It seemed like we had it under control. Then around Memorial Day, people started going out again. Some states followed the phase reopening plans put forth by the White House Corona Virus Task force. And some did not. Now the world is watching us as the virus surges and spreads from region to region and school district struggle with how to reopen safely. ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos talked about the U. S response with a head of the Harvard Global Health Initiative. Dr Asheesh job They discussed how to turn things around and where the U. S stands now. Good morning. America is so clear that this virus simply is still out of control here in the United States were the richest country in the world. The best medical talent in the world. How do you explain why we're doing so poorly? What must we do to fix it? Indeed we are. We are the global hospital and we have mismanaged his virus in a way that I think much of the world simply can't believe on. The reason is that we just haven't taken us seriously. We have not followed scientific advice and guidance. When we opened up too early. We've opened up too much. We're still debating whether mass work or not, they actually do. There's no debate. So what do we need to do? Moving forward? We need to get mad people. There were maps. We need to fix our testing infrastructure. We have to close down bars and gyms and other things that cause outbreaks, and we just have to start taking the virus. Seriously. I think if we do all of those things, George Within the next couple of months. We can become one of the success stories as opposed to one of the global failures right now. Some optimism right there. Of course, over the next couple of months school is starting again. For so many millions of American Children. We're seeing big school district close stick with virtual All over the country. Everyone want schools to open safely. The question is how to do it. This is not a debate, right? We all want our kids back in school, and this should be priority number one for our country and we don't have a national plan. And we've left it. A state states are leaving at his local towns and officials. We can't have pandemics fought by individual cities, towns and superintendents. I really believe we can get kids back to school, but we need a national plan to suppress the virus. Improve the quality of the buildings of the schools, and we can do this. We can get kids back in. You know, we're seeing hot spots crop up here in the United States, but also coming back to places like China. New cases being reported in China, Australia. They have had great success. Now It's coming back there as well. Vietnam didn't have any cases now they're having is well, what are we seeing This now? Is this still a first way was at the beginning of a second wave. This is a global pandemic. That's going to be with us all the way until we have safe, effective vaccines that are widely available sometime. I'm hopeful and next year until then, countries will continue to battle a most high income countries have managed to suppress the virus. They get little flare ups and they're able to bring them under control. We're the only country with kind of a raging wildfire, and we really have to work on that. But even if we suppress it, we will still have little outbreak so we'll have to do and you're describing our current situation in the United States that were just in the fourth inning of this crisis. Yeah. You know, I was trying to explain to people kind of a timeline and I have thought of this. If everything goes incredibly well as sort of an 18 months pandemic that let's say began around January of this year. That's very optimistic. That puts us in about the sort of the beginning the top of the fourth inning. Just as a way of reminding people we have many more months ahead of us, and we do behind us. And if we don't get our act together, we're gonna have a lot more suffering and death, and none of that is necessary. We really can't prevent all of Dr John Thanksgiving every time and insight.
The Athlete Mentality and Journey of Megan Henry, Team USA Skeleton Athlete
"Morning right. Where are you now? I'm in Connecticut some home for Christmas. Which is nice awesome Meghan equipment? Everyone that comes on when you're younger an athlete bigger goal to achieve. I think the same museum like I really wanted to be a division field hockey player and I didn't start clang field hockey until I was in middle school and I just kind of went to a camp on a whim. My mom signed me up for this camp and I was okay. Added is pretty shy. Actually when I was younger so I didn't necessarily they WANNA do things by. I came early like field hockey and play A. I Made Varsity as a sophomore in in high school. which like not a lot of people did at the time and scored the game winning goal in double overtime to send us to states and that was like a really Big Ping and I started looking at schools early on when I was playing at Varsity I knew that I wanted to play Division One and I am from Connecticut? It's all I wanted to go to uconn. And that didn't pan out it. Just kind of miscommunication like the coaches. I went to like all of these showcases. Oh Cases All these tournaments in suffers college coaches there and I applied to Uconn a by dining university. Another big school school and I went to this tournament and they had a college night so if you were like an up and coming senior year pretty much should have been Mike committed by appointment. You like if you are a junior senior and so most people kind of new idea had senior night actually what it was called and so there were a bunch of college coaches there they had tables buy. If you were already pretty much headed toward the cooler emitted the Yukon took all of their upcoming seniors out. They took them out to dinner and they didn't tell me so. I was really upset about it. That was like Oh my God. What is is happening so I walked to the table? I knew American University. which is where I went to college? Was this senior night and I hadn't really like Don on a whole lot with them. I kind of like communicated I really liked Washington. DC inside went up to him. And I was like. I'm playing in these Games tomorrow and I just as you know. And he had seen me so I pretty much at least contact coaches that the tell them what I was doing was planning for whereas playing in he had seen the answer he was already interested so that was like really helpful but I ended up being someone who really late college visit I committed. It'd very late because my dream school of playing for you conduct didn't pan out so I was like you know in complete panic that I hadn't committed needed anymore until really late like in my senior year but I went to American University. It was amazing. I was really really happy there as a freshman I and I came from being like the star player. You know I live in the middle of nowhere Like I don't know there's not that many people and I was not a starter freshman year I was not a star off our air and I kind of got mixed in to me. That was really hard to deal with. I was not I used to being like not key player and so another kind of sounds like a little spoiled. I guess I it wasn't used to it and because it took me a lot of time and energy to like be a really key player in high school I was expecting like the work was already done. You had a mentor. That told me like back in the day. That head coach told him the ball. That looks cheer right. Everyone living in this room with author on their teams well exactly and that is exactly how I remember talking with other people. My roommate at the time was playing and to my other close friends on the team we were. We were on the bench and I was like what is going on. And they're like I don't know I was the same when I was the number one player you know and so so it's pretty wild like as you keep leveling up like everybody was the best at one point Bob Force needs to be more of like a utility l'idee player so I had in high school I was a forward I was a right wing and I was actually recruited as a midfielder something I never did I ended up ultimately ultimately playing mostly right wing again in college I was moved all around the front line is a forward I I saw Dan as a midfielder my had to L. become better at my defensive skills so ended up being good for me just to become a better overall player so the journey for you go your shot with coach yeah you like saying Hey I'm playing you want me can play and I mean it was definitely Salihi it was kind of like this is a panic Mike I have nowhere to go now 'cause I all my eggs in one basket let's get back I mean it it worked out really well I think a lot of people not to cut no I was that way when employees school hot ply the two schools Oklahoma and Oklahoma state and they would like the last resort not With date anybody knows like I don't Wanna ask her there so for you if that didn't happen did you have another plan or what we're GONNA do. I had applied to Uconn Indiana and like. UVM was like my last choice. Did Not want to go there and I had done unofficial visit there and it would have been okay. I would never have become the player that I did and it. Just it all works out serendipitous Lee. You think it's bad but it was the I absolutely loved my college athletic other experience. My college coach was phenomenal. He's one of the best in the country. I would put money on it. He's coached the women's national team at the Olympics convicts. He's an Olympian in field hockey and the coaching skills that he has and how he treated US set me up for success on on the road like you just. I think that I would never found that anywhere else. Just how incredible he was person. So I'm really great for agreeable right because I did work out better for me. Everything works I wanted to yes. So you're saying you know that first year you kinda end this limbo trying to figure okay. What's my role adult? Get to where I was in high school and understand the another local playing time for. How did you approach that at your athey mindset? We'll I I I was like I don't know if I belong here. Maybe I'm kidding myself that I was good enough to be here so I sat down with my coach I was like. I don't know if I should do this anymore. And he's like known so. I guess helpful to kind of get reassurance. 'cause there were a lot of. I think what kind of spark that a a lot of other people started walking away and I think some of them were like. I don't WanNa go to school anymore. I'm going to transfer her whatever it may be like. Maybe O and in two of my close friends on the team left and so I kind of felt like yeah now I have nobody really. They're like my two closest friends are gone on their leaving and I ended up staying in. I don't know I guess it was just that the reassurance really did help me change uh-huh and I mean I trained really hard in the gym and I think there's a lot more than I could have done actually like looking back on it. Oh I think he always offered like individual sessions outside of of artists. So if you wanted to like get better skill you could sign up for individual so it was called and I could have done more stuff like that or signed up for like small group sessions outside practice and identity. There's more moreover I could have done but I trained really hard. In the off season I moved to Washington. DC My last year. I stayed there in the summertime and I trained with the strength coach in the off season because I wanted to make my senior year. Really really good and yeah and then actually. After my senior season was done I walked onto the track team American University. Because I just I wasn't ready to be done being an athlete. We all can you hang on to officiate so you track and field. What you do as a sprinter? So like indoor. Yeah I guess there's a fifty five I don't even know if you five indoor one hundred two hundred four by one quick. I like to think I'm out right. Thank you I'm not like national level but I'm good cool like how your story playhouse awesome. Because you know the field hockey thing with the coordination with the running with no the stig ethnic dead ball that then you gotta check him field when you work on in your expanding your mechanic the now you're in this notion. Yeah so after I graduated college I enlisted in the army. I guess because I was trying to get a job in a lot of places where like you need three to five years work experience. You need master's degree and I was like good all right. I had an interest in enjoying military actually when I was very young and I thought it was an honorable thing to do so like within a month of graduate I joined the army and I should off to basic training and I joined because it continues like you need to have the physical side the mental side. There's a team environment so like all of that stuff is really attractive. The obviously it's something that I know very well and allowed me to continue and then after I was finished with all of my basic training my Vance job training. I was recruited to do
Shortest NBA Career, Ever
"Royce. It's been exactly ten years this Saturday since James Names on curry who I should note is not related to Steph curry made his NBA debut. I found this story fascinating. Because here's a guy who has seemingly on on the cusp of achieving all of his dreams. And then poof it's over. He's out of the League. How did you go about finding him? It was a really long on kind of winding path to it and it was somewhat of a passion project. Part of me was I was kind of scared. That's a story outside my comfort zone a little a bit to just completely cold call somebody and track them down and find out because you know on the other side of it. You're going to see like the story is three point nine seconds right and then it's open ended after that. Where's he at? What's he doing is the jailing does he oversees? He'd still trying to play basketball. I have no idea you you can put these stories in your mind. I kinda WanNa know about that. And then they kind of just sort of get lost in the shuffle and you keep thinking about it and you keep wondering about it. And that's what level with me is that finally it was like you know what I'm going to find out about this and I got kind of approval to pursue this story and at that time it was like okay. We don't know where he's at. You know he could be still playing professional basketball somewhere in like Moscow or Turkey. You're the Israel or wherever and it just so happened that when I finally got in touch a to a James on curry through instagram of all places. Because that's how you are a reporter in two thousand twenty. He got back to me and he told me to call them and I said so. Where do you live now? And he told me he lived in ended Oklahoma. which just so happened to be an hour away from me so sad to say I mean up? My editors were quite happy that the travel budget got significantly reduced instead of flying to Moscow or something had to drive up the road. Enid so Royce you reach out to James on you find out. He lives near you. You can get his story you were drawn to his story because he had the shortest career in NBA history. Three point nine seconds. Did he know that when I approached him very much so if you type it in on Youtube if you type in his name. There's a video out there that somebody made and it's got over a million views or something like that and it's kind of like a awhile did you fact in the NBA and James on understood that he was basically the answer to a trivia question and not a flattering trivia. Your question was he a highly touted recruit so james on Curry was really a household name Nina and so much so that in North Carolina lineup basketball history. He's a true legend. He scored more points in high school than Michael Jordan ever heard of them. James Worthy David Thomson and he said that record and he was a five star recruit. He was committed in North Carolina. He was a big big deal and people from all around the state would come to watch him play. He was routinely scoring forty thirty. Five fifty fifty five points at night. He had a dedicated beat reporter that would come and follow him around. He was destined to be the next Great College Basketball Player order and thereby the next grade professional basketball player so from there does he get all the offers two big schools fast track to the NBA. Say He did have the office. Everybody recruiting him. It was it was set up for him to go play for Roy Williams at North Carolina and lead them to national championships and get drafted. Be One and done player go the NBA. All that type of stuff was set up for him to happen. The crazy Roese thing about it was. He plays a game against Graham High School and I think he scored forty seven in that game is team was on the fast track to a state title and the next morning. He shows up at school and he gets called into the principal's office so he walks down the hall. He walks in the principal's office and he sees a bunch of police officers officers in there. And he thinks that they're in there. Because I want to ask him for an autograph and instead of that they put him in handcuffs. James on was caught selling drugs to an undercover cop. James is on sold him. Marijuana and his total take Fort Meena was ninety five dollars so while he was dropping shopping. forty-seven on Graham High School. They were printing up a warrant for his arrest. So at that point everything completely changed from didn't take long for North Carolina to pull his scholarship. He was kicked out of school kicked off the basketball team. He finished high school at an alternative school and really at that point just didn't know if he was going to get another chance. So what does he decide to do. Angst as you might believe since he was so so good some other schools got involved but this kind of random place jumped out to him and really kind of hooked victim and that was Oklahoma State University and part of what Oklahoma State had to sell for him was their coach. Eddie Sutton was a recovering alcoholic and he understood second chances and of course he brought him to Oklahoma state because first of all he's really good second of all because he saw something in James on and thought it was worthwhile taking that shot on. So how does he we do. When he gets to Oklahoma state he was good? There was a game where he was playing in Madison Square Garden. Achieving his dream they're playing against Syracuse. And he was part of a big second half running Ron and three on the insist this cowboys happily Dick. Vitale called him a diaper Dandy and it was a dream come true feeling feeling this outboard played one of the greatest games in all time in college basketball history at triple overtime game against Kevin Durant and Texas. The Dow Jones scored forty something Durant scored forty something and it's known as to be one of the Great Games it starts getting you know. Draft Talk. Scouts are coming to watch him play so it all kind of felt like it. It had come together for James on and he was going to have a shot after all. So curry gets drafted by the Bulls. What happens next? So it shows the Bulls and he's he's sent down to the D. League. He's brought backup. He sent back down. He's brought backup. He's bouncing back and forth and in his mind. He's he's not really getting his chance. And he the as a couple incidents that again pop-up form one. He was at the D. League showcase in Idaho and he gets busted on public urination and gets arrested for it the Bulls suspend them one game. And now it's like you know he's got another thing kind of tagged with them there and here's another incident where he's driving to the airport in Chicago Gago. He says he gets lost on the way to the airport and he misses his flight. Going to New York. And that's another strike from the Bulls and in his mind that that was one that like they couldn't get over over. There was a time where their coach Scott Scales kind of told the team this practices an open tryout for playing time and he felt like he showed everybody up he was he was crushing it. He killed everybody thirty. On the court. And the scrimmage and Scott pulled him aside and I think that scowls thought it was a compliment but it really wasn't at least not to James on but he said you're going to be the best player in the D. League and and that kind of crush James on spirits and GE just goes through the season and he just never gets a chance with them and they end up cutting them after the year so he gets cut by the Bulls else and after that he's bouncing around the Euroleague D. League teams. How does he make his way back to the NBA? Hey bounces around. He gets them chances and he gets drafted. He's actually the first draft pick ever for the Bakersfield Jam. There the D League affiliate for the Los Angeles Clippers Clippers and he's doing great becomes a D. League all star and he finally gets his call he gets the call. Uh what happens next so he gets a call up and suit up for the clippers there in Boston. They're playing the Celtics. It's late third quarter. There's some foul trouble issues. Injury issues for Rondo now. The final possession for the Boston Celtics. The James on gets says number called Mike Dunleavy says game with three point nine seconds ago. There's three point nine seconds left on the clock in the third quarter James on jumps up runs runs the scores table and look look comes in James on Curry Hey is first appearance ever in an NBA game. What a thrill? It's gotTa be dream fulfilled hears his my name called out in the arena runs out on the court. He's guarding region. Rondo Sri couldn't have expected it right at this moment a week ago. I sure didn't expect Eddie. There's a quick play run. Not much happens doesn't touch. The ball doesn't do anything other than just kind of stand there with a half. The A reasonable job lookers pretty happy to be down by only five buzzer. Sounds runs off the court and De'andre Jordan. Subs is in for him to start the fourth quarter and he never steps on the floor again and like literally never because the next morning he wakes up. He gets a call from the clippers the next morning telling him he's been

Understanding China's Role in Tech Trade Wars
"Ever want to continue our conversation Nosta with us is Billy Carolina chief market strategist haven't stuff isn't capital management global investment strategist at the photo red mount and also still with us is running for re her her book is don't be evil have big tech betrayed its founding principles and all of us is great for your stocking stuffers in a season because flag big stock there's like this is like a must read because it does it's really really hard time it is a story of our time and impacts the matter what industry you said before the break you know one of the things we need to get into is China's role in all of this tell us a bit about that where you see how that plays it right well this is the story the at the economic story right now tax trade wars this is really about China and the U. S. going different ways in terms of how the internet is going to be governed in terms of strategic technologies I keep hearing from a lot of Chinese investors that they they believe they're going to have their own ecosystem they've already got their own big tech players Ali Baba ten cent by do all those but that they are going to actually have their their own supply chains their own consumer brands in a company like Xiaomi is already doing better in some in some areas than apple in China so this is a big split coming and it's really interesting it's provoking some fascinating strange bedfellows in the US you know you see a company like Google is saying well you know maybe we should be a national champion here you know teaming up with the defense department thinking about how to kind of ring fence the the ecosystem in the U. S. same again with Amazon they've tried to ring fence government purchasing my worry is the overall ecosystem now I worry that you're you're gonna end up with a scenario where four five big players have the entire pie and that doesn't work we've got to make room for other other companies really SO four five players sort of connotes that there would be a monopoly yeah and yet we seem to need a new definition for monopoly right because an awfully pertains to price increases generally as a rule in an industrial economy bought in this kind of surveillance capitalistic information economy that's really not the case yeah and you know that the point about prices so profound because you're absolutely right that the whole Chicago school you know as long as prices are going down everything's fine doesn't fit when you're you're not doing a transaction in dollars you're doing and date as of barter transactions so that's not a that's that's very opaque market and that's why you have this asymmetry in this kind of superstar fact with an Amazon or Google they've got all the information you don't have any information so I think we are going to need some regulatory shifts to deal that so as you sort of finish reporting and writing this and as you go out and talk to people I mean as we've been saying or not just saying because you're I mean it is the story of our time it's incredibly timely are you more optimistic less optimistic have you changed your own sort of behavior or your thoughts about this to the process well I I absolutely have I mean I've done a digital detox it was kind of actually by force that I last Christmas I dropped my cell phone on Christmas Eve with that company issued phone and I couldn't get a replacement I was like you know going off cigarettes or something for forty eight hours I was twitchy it kept reaching in my pocket so I do that regularly now I've actually cut down the amount of times I check email which by the way it takes you five minutes to reset every time you interrupt so your productivity I mean that's a whole nother topic lost product the productivity conundrum probably has something to do with technology and and the effects of these for no I think it's a really good point and and you see more and more advice saying you know check your email certain you know a certain amount of time in a time yeah not constantly letting it kind of interrupt your work flow I do wonder though in terms of regulatory oversight where it's all headache yeah well there's there's two big schools of thought I mean one is that look we can work within the existing system and just make some small tweaks the other thought this is more about how the Europeans are going is we're gonna need a really profound reshaping I mean that the Europeans are talking about public data banks you know where you would that the public sector would own this this data but on the other hand you've got California coming in saying Hey maybe we need a digital sovereign wealth funds because at the end of the day if data is the new oil you have to make sure that that value can be shared what can I just add something please a runner said earlier in regards to the the the capture of information and the and the anticipation of what is about to occur and you know dropping the phone things of that sort one of the concerns that's been expressed has been whether or not the machine learning will have accomplished so much that it knows what you're going to do in anticipation of and therefore it is and you have free will you don't really does come down to that yeah it really has a it has a makes all the as a matrix feel to it
Students graduating in these states are drowning in loan debt
"All right if you are new to the show this by the way is the most popular segment of the show with Tony saw on the news and much like Chris as I scour the news throughout the course of the week I try and put aside couple articles that pertain to what we do here on the radio show or that I think would be of interest to folks and this is something near kinda sort of that we've talked about before on the show in various forms Chris yeah but this comes from USA today this was just the other day you not you Chris but you of you listening may have seen this yourself if you get USA today or USA today online about one fifth of millennials and we talk about millennials a lot here on the program and not necessarily in a negative way like some people do but just because they're the next generation to save up for retirement and it's a big you know get to where we are absolutely one fifth of millennials expect to be financially reliant on of their parents into their thirties ally and the other reason we talk about millennials a lot is because Chris and I have millennials yes we do all right now the second half of this is about us so one fifth of millennials expect to be financially reliant on their parents into their thirties and most parents say it's embarrassing if their kids are still on their payroll at the age of twenty seven twenty seven now you and I were actually talking a little bit about this during the break and we came to the conclusion that maybe twenty seven is like the new twenty one yeah well it's only six years difference right when we were growing up it was like twenty one that's it your twenty one year man you're on your own you know right so at twenty one I was still in college so my parents like paid for my car insurance and helped out of course but we didn't have cell phones we don't have all the stuff right so you I I guess you look at it and you say you know sixteen driver's license eighteen can you drink when you're eighteen no not a twenty one twenty one right you can drink right twenty seven you have to stop taking money from mom right that's just the way life works that's crazy if your kids yeah I gotta pay for your kids Stiller twenty seven if they're not in school if they're in school and I get it well and that's where parents a cutting them off because a lot of the millennials think they'll be living with their parents into their thirties but a lot of parents are saying no no no twenty seven that's it the study examines the state of young adults money habits and attitudes in the United States the data suggests that young Americans are powering through a series of financial challenges including a lack of budgeting and decreasing savings tied to mounting student loan debt you know you keep hearing about student loan debt all over the place and Mike my question is at what point do we have a break even situation where we say you know what it cost so much to go to school the same worth it to go to school anymore but and not only that but you have options to this is something else we've talked about on the show when you know planning Hey Chris I both have kids in college right planning for your children to go to college is a major major financial undertaking sure you know and you keep hearing about all this mounting debt college loans and everything but you have a choice I'll use myself as an example okay you know my son is going to a different school than we thought it was going to go to just because I was a lot more financially advantageous sure you know so people do have the option like yeah this is a great school but it cost sixty thousand dollars a year if you go to a state school in state school at least for us here in Florida maybe it costs twenty thousand a year right and guess what if you go to community college or whatever they call it now state schools state college you know it costs maybe five thousand a year right you know so so there's ways to do it you're saying without unnecessarily bankrupting the whole family right right yeah and I that's right but I also think that there you got to focus on now some people are gonna hate me for this but you gotta focus on majors that have potential of paying you in the future I agree with what you're saying to at what point like if you're going to go to a school the cost forty or fifty thousand dollars a year to be water want to single anyone out an engineer but now if let's say you go to a really expensive school and you major in something that you know is not necessarily going to pay a lot of money right like you go to a some big some some big school you pay fifty thousand dollars you're going to be a social worker or something right you know and as social workers are important yeah yeah yeah nothing against the socially organised but you're sixty thousand dollars to become a social worker you're gonna make twenty seven thousand dollars a year in your tech companies fifteen top right then you got a problem as far as trying to pay that back and that's why you're living in mom and dad's basement right right but we don't have basements here in Florida so that means that they have to live on the main level which became all the more paying fifty sixty thousand dollars a year for you know a political science major and then you're going to figure out what you're going to do with that degree right you know general studies I mean you know maybe you shouldn't go to a school that's that expensive unless you have a real specific high paying career that you focused on right so we got people graduating from college that are on the payroll of the parents but then also we have situations now where the parents are having to take care of their parents right right right that's the other side of this story there is actually a generation people around our age that they called the sandwich generation now huh which means you're sandwiched in between taking care of your adult kids and taking care of your elderly parents while but there's a lot of people listening there in that situation yeah that is a rough rough situation to be in yeah hi I wonder if if it would make sense you know I I have seen things like I I have a son at UCF and I get all of these announcements Sir notifications of these things that they have boot camps coding boot camps have you seen these yes so if for like ten grand they're going to teach you how to code in certain languages and then they say with that information you can just go off and get a job doing that which is a pretty cool deal but they're kind of St you don't need that I guess you're not saying this but they're giving you an opportunity to get a skill that will allow you to get into the work force and you don't have to take classes in history and yelled language and all of those are the kinds of things that some people just don't really want to do right and that can really reduce your costs there but when you think about somebody that is is trying to figure out how to generate an income but doesn't know Sir I want to spend fifty or sixty thousand dollars on college maybe a boot camp you should think about this a great segue is is trading I mean what if what if up a parent and their child came trial I see child adult adult child right actually came to the academy and figured out how to treat together that's a great idea right let's say you're a millennial I don't know I just pick ace let's say your twenty six years old you still living at home you're at a school you living at home with your parents you hate it you want to get out on your own and now you parents hate the fact that your twenty six years old

But but I did I had a good career. So I I've, you know, obviously done a lot of things some people haven't done. So I grew up in in Greensboro, North Carolina your AllState in three sports, what was the process like of deciding, hey, I want to try and play three sports in college. Well, you know, I mean, I just grew up playing multiple sports. I think everybody did back. You know, it's a lot harder now. But back when I was young I started, you know, basketball and baseball when I was six and football when I was eight, and it was just kind of something that was natural you know, season to season. And when the time came for college, I got recruited by a lot of schools, more big schools for football basketball, kind of. I don't know if it always been my favorite. But it was something I didn't really want to give up and when I was actually in high school the and I committed to wake actually before my right into my junior year on a football scholarship and part of the green was I would definitely play basketball. And after I committed to that the actual baseball coach come out and watch me play some my junior year, and my senior year, he said, hey, if you ever wanna play baseball, we'd love to have you as well. So it was kinda one of the things that I knew I was gonna play too. But you know, kinda toyed with the idea of playing a little baseball as well. Okay. So you get to Wake Forest, how do you? How do you do it? Right. Because I was I was actually talking my son last night. 'cause I knew we were we were gonna talk and he was saying dead. What what sport should I play? He plays basketball baseball. Football tennis and done little wrestling before whatever and is like we'll just kind of try and figure it out as you go as you get how'd you do it? And it seems like crazy juggling act. Yeah. I mean, it was. I don't know. I probably couldn't have done it many places other than wake just because it's such a small school. And I grew up twenty minutes from campus. So I had a lot of family and friends and support people that I wasn't being shipped off across the country. I was right here my backyard with family friends support. And for me, it was just kind of you know, getting up every day and doing what was on my calendar. I had great coaches who let me play the sport. I was in. I look I I understand that. Like, okay, you show up like, you have show what summer for football, right mind. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

It comes to When it comes. To sorry I had to ahead here. And I lost it but he had. Some interesting quotes about Big Ben just saying. Pretty. Much, that he pretty much floats everything out there and has? His receivers go get it he's not that good of a quarterback and he also had, something to. Say about Matt Ryan he also said that Matt Ryan. Is overrated this is exactly what he's saying here I think Matt Ryan's overrated. You can't tell me, you win the MVP two years, ago and then last year you had a complete bust and you still got. Julio Jones there's no way that you'd ever happen I don't care you know what. That tells me that tells me. Kyle Shanahan left one to San Francisco got Garoppolo, made Garoppolo this big thing. And now, Garoppolo is, a big name and now, Matt Ryan has this bad? Year alright well was. It really you, or, was it, really. Your coach he was doing, what, he was asked of him and it was making. Him look really really good so Jalen Ramsey trying to take on the entire NFL trying, to bring. Down every every quarterback so especially two guys that Ben Rothlisberger is a is a future hall of Famer and I don't think, there's any, doubt in my mind and then also bringing down Matt. Ryan former MVP and we'll Brenton will Brinson who is with CBS sports he breaks down what Jalen. Ramsey is. Opinions are of the quarterbacks around, the NFL Allen trash flacco he sucks. Tyrod slash, Marietta underrated Matt. Ryan who Jimmy Garoppolo all schemes to, Shawn Watson, Carson Wentz, MVP soon Goff average, to. Above average car. Cousins a winner Big Ben decent at best. Bortles playoff Blake is good So Jalen Ramsey trying to go after every quarterback around the. NFL and then when it comes to his, quarterback heavy senior quarterback play. Lately I don't know I don't know what he's trying to exactly. Get out there Now at. Least at least the bills get to play Jalen Ramsey later and if Josh. Allen is the quarterback than Jalen. Ramsey might get, his wish Josh. Allen leads into a win that's that's good. Taste pre sweet the the tears are gonna tastes pretty sweet Speaking like. A. True fan
