Ballot Drop Boxes Gain Popularity As An Alternative To In-Person And Mail-In Voting
"Worried about casting their ballots in person this November because of the pandemic. They are also worried that mail in ballots could be misplaced or delayed on alternative that is gaining popularity and also attracting controversy is drop boxes where voters can deposit their absentee ballots to be collected by election officials. NPR's Pam Fessler reports. A steady stream of voters in Detroit, Michigan last week approached a red, white and blue metal box right outside the city's main election office. The box looked a little like a high tech trash can or recycling bin. Instead, it was one of several 100 ballot drop boxes located across the state. More than a 1,000,000 Michigan voters decided to cast absentee ballots in the primary rather than go to the polls, But many like Elizabeth Dandridge didn't want account on the post office to deliver those ballots. I want to be sure that it was collected in the box. Sometimes the males delay I'm waiting on a package is what people have sent me over to weeks to go, and they haven't come. And it's a growing concern is the U. S. Prepares for a flood of absentee and mail in voting in November. Many election officials are encouraging voters to use Dropbox is instead to make sure their ballots don't arrive too late to be counted. That's already happened to tens of thousands of ballots this year. Connecticut's using 200 new drop boxes in tomorrow's primary. Secretary of State Denise Merrill admits the state was somewhat overwhelmed by a surgeon requests for mail in ballots and even a week ago, local election offices were still trying to fill those requests. There's a lot of confusion just the moment about when the ballots got mailed to whom When they're going to arrive. It's going to be very tight and the ballot boxes play an increasingly important role in all this, because you know you shave off 234 baby five days from when you mail a ballot. But the boxes are controversial. Ah, couple of Connecticut towns complained that having them outside available to voters, 24 7 isn't safe, even though many are protected with security cameras. The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign have filed suit to block Pennsylvania from using such boxes in November, arguing they could increase the chances for fraud. Tennessee Secretary of State Trey Hargett recently told a Senate committee his state doesn't allow drop boxes for fear voters might be pressured on how to vote. If someone knows you've got an absentee ballot, they can say, Hey, I'll be glad to take that for you and drop that off for you. They can ask you what you build that balance out or they can not turn it all for you. We believe it's a great security measure Tohave, someone returning their own balance by the United States Postal Service Dropbox supporters dismiss such concerns is completely unfounded. They note that drop boxes have been used in some states for decades without problems. Kristen Clarke of the Lord's Committee for Civil Rights under Law told senators the boxes are unimportant and convenient option for voters a compliment the limited postal box offices that are available in communities and are just critical to providing access this season access for whom isn't clear. Researchers have found that drop box is Khun Boost turnout overall. But there's no evidence at least so far that one party benefits more than the other. Still, Larry Olsen of Laser Fab Company in Washington state that makes the boxes, says demand's definitely on the rise. I couple orders today, and he's confident their boxes are far more secure than the average mailbox, he says. There are multiple features to prevent tampering. The boxes are also made of steel and weigh about Â£600 they're bolted to the ground, So it's not really something anybody can move easily. In fact, he notes at an SUV plowed into one of them in Washington state last year. Both the box and contents. Survived. Pam Fessler NPR news

There were lots of theories about the pollution in Beijing and that being there's always some sort of controversy drama in the lead-up. Olympic. Some sort of reason that's being peddled in the media may be completely legit often is about why the Olympics is going to be a massive massive failure. In Rio none of us were ready. We didn't get that with London twenty twelve here. I'm sure in other countries they did everybody was sort of united in positively about the Olympics but in Beijing was the pollution because the the factory I mean everywhere in China in factories in urban areas in China and they were well first they relocated. I know from personal experience, they relocated a lot of the most polluting factories from Beijing to other parts of the country in particular to Ching de. meaning that on my visits to Chengdu roundabout that time it felt like my throat was burning every time I stepped outside because the pollution in the smoke was so bad. In fact, the final of the champions tour event. that. I attended in D. had to be halted because nobody could see the ball. But In Beijing I mean the police was was far less bad than fit but they hid seeded the clouds in order to make it rain in the lead up to the Olympics to clear the air they were controlling the weather. Can come here and do that. Yeah. No, I remember thinking what if it's that easy to make it not reign. Why we faffing around with you know? All the time.
A New Documentary Shines A Spotlight On The Lyricist Behind The Disney Renaissance
"Wrote the words too some of the classic Disney songs he was the lyricist behind three classic Disney song books, as well as Little Shop of Horrors. But his career was cut short when he died of AIDS in 1991. Composer Alan Menken had worked closely with Ashman and now a new documentary film has given him one last chance to collaborate with his late friend Tim. Grieving has the story. Alan Menken wrote this song at Howard Ashman Hospital Bed while his friend was dying. His life was pitifully cut short. But As an artist. He's really vital Even now. They met in New York in the 19 seventies, where Ashman was running a black box theater. They yelled like Rodgers and Hammerstein and wrote the musical's Kurt Vonnegut's God Bless you, Mr Rosewater, and the unlikely hit little Shop of horrors. Pretty soon Ashman was courted by Jeffrey Katzenberg to come to Disney and help in animation department That was on the skids. I have a letter that I found in the Library of Congress. And it's a letter from Jeffrey Katzenberg. Don Hahn, a producer on beauty and the Beast directed the new documentary, Howard, says Howard. Thanks for talking the other day. There's so many things we want you to work on. We'd love you to work on a Arabian Nights story. We'd love you to work a little murder, and Jeffrey ends up, saying the collaboration of Of Howard Ashman and and bolt. Disney is, you know just a hit, waiting to happen. It sure Wass, Ashman and Mink and brought a vibrant Broadway sensibility to Disney animation, and it led to a lucrative renaissance. The beast. Ashman died before he finished Aladdin and even before beauty and the Beast premiered, he was only 40. The documentary tracks his rise from a theater obsessed kid in Baltimore to his musical highs to his untimely death, told through archival footage of recording sessions, song demos, new interviews with family and friends and Ashman, explaining his own philosophies. You get to a certain point where the crab has to convince the mermaid not to go up above the water and change your life, So he has to sing under the sea, and she has same part of your world because she wants to go up to dry land so badly. Over the years, Alan Menken has worked unused songs from the Disney animated musicals into their Broadway adaptations. So in a way, he's never stopped working with Howard Ashman. I wrote a song for Howard past Mile friend Donna When Tim Rice and I began work on the Broadway adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, I said, I'm going to take a piece of music and is this home? This is where I should learn to be happy. So that became part of the fabric of beauty and the beast of hell in this Mink and shared his memories for the documentary. When Don Hahn sent in the rough cut, he told the director, he had to write the score. Oh, my God! Was it a labor of love? I feel deeply connected to Howard. And I just felt that I wanted music that if he was directing and he would have wanted to put in there Composer says This was really like his final collaboration with Howard almost 30 years after he died, a new work with words by Ashman and tunes by Minkin. For NPR news. I'm Tim grieving.

You're gonNA find that there's GonNa be a greater balance between virtual events and real world events as you look to the future. I was surprised when. Zoom went from ten, million years, two, hundred, million users. It almost sounded on real because I thought pretty much everybody another. So, a lot of people now are familiar with technology. I, mean you guys are pioneers and what you've been doing for quite some time at this point. But I think events will do better. certain live events will do better in other events. A lot corporate type events where people like, Oh, done. This virtually put out a million dollars. They're going to start looking at their budgets for that kind of stuff puffer like vents like. Big podcasting live band. You mean, those things are GonNa do really well, because people still need to meet each other. Personally, we're already online. what I what I don't see it pictures when that's GonNa. Come back online. I'm hoping. Sooner the later but. You. Know we're all waiting and did, what are you thinking as you look to the future? Even when that happens that there's going to be a stronger online and a virtual event that'll be bolted onto your real world event that try and scale or is that I? Mean I mean, how do you see that that played out over time as you think about it? Yeah. I actually see podcasts having a physical, Bennett? The same time having event at the same time while people that can't attend it. Have virtual speakers and we start scheduling that out on. Entry Point to grow your unity. I also. By the way going to virtual anyway because it's a smart business to have, right. event. I know now it's talk about, but we would have done one. anyways. You know now we're just a couple more than normal. But. This this? This global summit. We're only one after that. Dragen. Mall one day event. This is one where we're putting all our resources that hoover were getting sponsors getting everybody integrated the where where. We will see more of it. Integrated, but I think what that is mentioning, what people have to crack potent, which I'm hoping. I'll be able to do that is you need more live interaction, not someone sitting at home watching something for fifteen minutes and then never coming back. So a tidy integrated community be alive event I. Think we'll see we're seeing a lot of Beta bills right now, I, just I. Don't I don't know how many of those pulse survive, but seeing a lot of tools come out for this kind of

So like I was saying before we hit record I, am not married and I am not divorced but I guess it's never too early to play on. My. Girlfriend's going to absolutely have it'd be texting me in a second. She hears this, but. I have like I said. I have just like everyone in the whole world I. Have Family and friends who have gone through this are going through those who work with blended families. This is something that affects all of our lives in one way or another, and especially with the anxiety community. This just ramps up. You know every possible emotional button that you can have shame worthiness. Stability financial security you know holy cow so. I I don't even know where to start. I'm so excited. I don't even know where to start. How did you so you are? You've been through this world. Did you start as? Well let me let me back up. Where did you start near your career before you realize that this was a passion of yours? Oh, I never wanted to be a lawyer. So why decided I wanted to be a lobbyist I was going to go to the day and work in politics and I got into Grad school and that was my career path, and then I said you know what if I'm going to spend a couple more years in school, a muzzle. Get my lodge, agree, and then I can maybe do something else with it and I never looked back on. Now looking at looking in the past I think Washington would have chewed me up and spit me out I. would've never survive there. So I just I you know. When I started practicing, it was with a small firm, and they were really good at criminal defense in yet they did family law, and they didn't want to do it or didn't like to do it, so they kind of punt it all those cases to me and it was just something that I found I actually enjoyed, and I found that I could really help people or really advocate for the people who didn't have a voice to so and that was you know. I started that a couple months after I got married myself. intoned fast forward eighteen years in two divorces later. Here I am. I've lived in worked in space for a while now. I can't imagine. Marrying and then divorcing a divorce attorney that must have been terrified for him. You know what the you know what the funny thing is like. Despite doing this for work, I really hate conflict in my personal life, and it's something I'm working on, but that was so interesting. I would not like like I was like okay. Let's just do this. Let's just do this fast in. Move on what you want. The end let's focus on so from my first marriage I have a son, and the focus has been completely on him and co-parenting the second marriage barely counts because I was in an elegantly fast so. That didn't exist. The Britney Spears. Marriage were totally six hours in Las Vegas. Pretty Mum. It. What's interesting about that? And so I? You know I sort of I I love when we get a new gas especially with a topic that's outside of our air quotes, nor even though Kelly my co host and I have. I mean we tried to interview everyone with every walk of life every expertise, but what I really was interested in what I saw your name, pop I'm like? Oh! We haven't had this and we have so many parallels. The more eye steeped in all your stuff and girl I went through the to the bottom your instagram. Every podcast What I love the. Talk about enough newness you talk about shame you talk about that empowerment and reinventing new life and what I love about what you just said is. You Know Kelly and I work with folks that are in the anxious community. And we've been been through it ourselves. We wouldn't wish it on our worst enemies, and we both you know genuinely hate the experience that we went through. We're very thankful for what we went through. I I'm sure it's a whole that you have aspects of your life that you're thankful you. Did you went through the trials you went through? But it's we have to do it again. We might be in the same exact boot. Right yeah, and you know it's so interesting because exile. Hits I think anyone going through a divorce and you may have never experienced since I exiled, and if you're going through that, you're you know it's GonNa keep you up at night and I agree with you. Because everything that I had gone through made me. A better lawyer, a better advocate me more compassionate made me be able to talk to someone and say I. Know How hard it is to Co parent, but here's why you have to do it anyway, and it made me even the work I do today is all because of all the experiences that I had in the past why apps have absolutely no regret. Regret it really just helped me kind of find my purpose in mission and everything and I think that had i. not gone through that or made those mistakes I would have never been in that position to speak the way I. do about Shane about being true to who you are authentic in your life known shame such a big topic and it's one. It, you know, and it's the one that really honestly kicked started my path in my mission and kind of passion for all of this, because I never spoke about it I, did not talk about my own divorce, because I was so embarrassed in so ashamed of it,
Chelsea’s Lampard tells Liverpool not to get too arrogant
"Shocker Shirley. It's not about the profanity to hear more about our Lampard said calling Liverpool arrogant. What do you think about the words in the Chelsea manager? I have no problem with the exchanges as they have on the sidelines. These things happen every single game. Between managers between players between teammates and the training, so there's nothing new or unique about this other than. points out the fact that there's no crouch. Obviously, we hear a lot, Clara. Do take a little bit of exception to frank coming out and seeing well, he would have had a beer with with you in club, but for what was said on the sidelines, not by Union club by the. Coaches. I read that has anything to do with it. You have these heated exchanges. Both men with would know this. And then you go in and you. You have a drink as much as do after the game. And you move on. I don't see why anything. About bolted, but to use that as an excuse, not to have a drink with and club I thought a little bit silly, and then you can klopp kind of doubled down on the silliness by him bringing up what Frank Lampard said in the. Post game press conference. A whole lot of silliness at play here that somehow snowballed into an issue. Greg just to clarify. Do you see any point to what Lampert says when he calls Liverpool, aggregate. No not are the best team in the country. This year in terms of the league possession by a male. They have a manager who demands is teamwork hard. They celebrate that enthusiastic. Mirror image of their manager in terms of desire and their enthusiasm and the drive. And I don't think anybody thinks. The arrogant. I think we don't know what was said from the bench from one of the coaches whether they threw something and jokes, he's face we don't know. So, you know only allow these coaching staff and the substitutes would have heard that, but certainly from eleven club playing perspective. There's no arrogance. Whatsoever. What we have to remember here Frank Pas and second unit management right false, cheering the premier league, the needed a point. To Guarantee Champions League football. Game against all needed to get something probably be. Champions League, the pressure was on. The result was going against them Liverpool. Tearing them apart at one point, he was not seeing as clear as normally would. Hide a moment. And there's nothing wrong with our have we can. We can agree and disagree about was used, but there's shock shocker, said this thing. This thing happens and. Both of them are think of. Something wrong here? Because as I said at that Light, Jurgen, KLOPP's in lesson, we're furniture after the vinyl west and he's basically telling lump. Economy say after the final West. Caught, you should rise above the. Chocolate. What about the point that? Craig makes your? Maybe the pressure of the end of his first premier league season getting a little bit. Be, and of course that's that's an excuse for a very good excuse me very well. The benefactor, but I, as as I said before and Craig agreed with Double Don. These things happen this this is not unique. This is not just about an end. Game! This is not just about the manager in in the second year in and management. Aw, the data WanNa pressure these things happen every single game whether it's I be fourth or thirteen three sixteenths. These things happen on the sidelines at just taking on a different context because of clearly hear it. Because of. What's unstick as far as neutral concerned? I and The fact that the managers in play our Jurgen Klopp who is the premier league champion, and still defending European champion and Frank Lampard as a player who's seen it and wanted to all and a little bit of her clash. There's no more to it than. Van That
Debating the Ahmaud Arbery case
"Equa mercy. Join his acklin great to see you. Did He. How dare you? How dare you? This is my house and you're wearing yenkey stuff. Scion unapologetically hello. All right well I just hope that during our debate I do better than the mets do against the Yankees that's. Hoping all right, let. This is what we're GONNA to talk about is the video. The video and the Aubrey case is an amazing piece of evidence. For the prosecution against the McMichael's because you see everything they do. Those are the two guys with the guns in the pickup, one of whom shoots and kills armory. But I think unfortunately. It's a great piece of evidence for the man who is recording that video. Roddy Brian Acklin you do not agree with me. Do not you are wrong. You're wrong. All right I'M GONNA go first, and it starts here and I say unfortunately and I want to preface that folks I'm not making an argument for Roddy. Brian what I'm telling you is what's going to happen and unfortunately this is a great piece of evidence for Roddy, Brian, this video and it comes down to the arguments that Kevin Goth is attorney. Make look at the facts surrounding the video, the only person on the face of the earth who knows this video is being made and being recorded at the time. It's being made in recorded. Is Roddy Brian Okay. He's the only one that knows. That this video exists. He's the only person on earth okay. So, if in fact, prosecutors are going to argue that these three men are working as a lynch mob. Are they going to argue that Roddy Brian's job as part of this lynch mob is to Corral And make sure that you record the lynching, so we can memorialize all of this. And don't forget how everyone finds out about the recording. Roddy Brian at the scene. Invites police into his truck to view the video, so police show up there. Just investing you try to figure out what happens and Ronnie Brian. Tells Police. Listen I got I've got it on video. I, recorded it. Please take a look at it. Shows it to them right then and there. So. Again. Unfortunately, the argument that Kevin Goth can make is lazy. Let's go inside the body Brian. What's his intent? Here was his intent to lynch. Ahmad Aubrey. If so, why would he record a crime? And then why? When police show up the first thing he would do is hand over to police the evidence of the crime that he committed. This goes one hundred percent into the mindset of Roddy Brian and this is a strong argument that Kevin Goth can make to a jury. that. Why on earth would someone record their own crime and then the first thing they do when police show up? Is hand the piece of evidence over to them. ACKLIN. Arguing was very compelling in sense. It's you can tell that you're not racist. By the argument that you provided because we did not include the racist element. Ronnie, Brian in the Michael's were racist, and they were on age racist Tirade. That is why they went around. That is why they have video. As you can see back in the day when they did lynchings in wasn't prided, they had videos. They need pictures of it because they were excited about what they did. We are in a world in which we have Presidential rallies in which races tirades are invited so to to be to say that Haiti's men weren't in building would be wrong. They were in bolted with regards to the back surrounding the video. Let's talk about it the fact surrounding videos. Let's talk about the video. When he was I invited. It was no audio I. Don't know I have that function in my recording in the sense in which I can record a thin ideo in not on your. You know who had the. Mr Brian. We didn't hear the shock in the basement of something that somebody about to die. Why because that million participating in now? He missed a whole big piece of evidence in that pieces of Ahmad. Berry was found on missed the giants car. Pieces that means that evidence of Mr Bridge that means that he hit. The armory with his car to prevent him for movie. To say that he was unarmed is wrong. Mr Robin Mister Bryant had the biggest weapon it at the time. Which is the whole vehicle? Truck with a whole trump down at he did his way, even had that man was cool hand Luke because he was watching a murder, and nobody asked for the audio initially because he was a murder. You know who that the cops you had racist cops come to a racist situation. Leave. The racism states okay hit him with the high side and let him live for three months. Months without any interruption to say that Mister. Bryant wasn't guilty is a farce. He was very much guilty at an end for three months. They watched a video and immig miles. What because they were able to stop? Being friends after Arboretum was shot and killed, they were still friends. They still had the video. They watched it so much, so daddy opened the door to sexual crimes. The this, this case should shock the conscience because the levels of racism in this case is unreasonable, we act three different prosecutors. This prosecutor who saw this in didn't think that this was a murder. We had officers at the scene saw this. In, dot, this which justify so the the Glenn Races. When the most important that evidence of our very being on righties car was still on his car. Three months acted incident and nearly care to wash off so. That that is that the video helps Brian. Totally doesn't work acting that. You didn't plinking most so. The prosecutors are going to argue. That Roddy Brian. Was Racist which they can. Was In cahoots and knew the police would not charge him, which is why he shared the video with police, and knew the process and shared it with the prosecutor because he knew the prosecutor would never charge them, is that do you think that is? An argument that is going to fly with the again. This I'm saying. These are all unfortunate facts for prosecutors in this case, and the prosecutors are going to have to prosecute. Roddy Brian. The McMichael's the local Glenn County Police and the prosecutor's office all in the same trial in order for that theory of yours to to not help. Roddy Brian? Welcome welcome to the practicing law. The South the levels of racism is so appeared like many I. I have to think of Armagh. Arbitrary. That I may get I get that I. Get that, but here's my point. My point is this makes that video the fact that he shoots video and there's more obstacles now. Prosecutors unfortunately again that and to me the obstacle is not only do I have to prosecute these three men. I've got to prosecute the local police and I've got to prosecute the local prosecutor and guess what I'm probably going to have to do it in Glynn County. Georgia. That makes the case more difficult. It's like it's like A. It's like a harper. Literally, but this is what in is in the south? We Wanna say that we come. We've come so far, but that's what it is, and that's how that's how big it is. That's how big it is I think we're agreeing here Hear me out here me out on my theory and why we're agreeing okay, because we're. We're making to arguments that are. not necessarily in conflict everything you're saying. I'm I'm agreeing with. Right. I, just have to get you to agree with the fact that the case is a little bit harder against Roddy Brian with him shooting that video and handing it to police, because now prosecutors have to take on the police and the prosecutors right so. Can we agree on that yes? Yes, all right all right I think we solved it. I think we did. This is a big moment, but I will not ever. Ever cheer for the Yankees. Especially when they play my mets, that will never happen, but I think we can agree here. To a certain extent that the there's going to be some obstacles here, but I think what you have shown me. And made me realize how you look at the case. You know I look at the case a certain way, but I have to get a different mentality onto to to get to that next level. So? Wow Acklin, always great having you on the show for having go Yankees got. That will be her last time on the show by the way. Either that or we can edit that out next time. We'll just bleep it out. Right Acklin mercy, incredible criminal defense attorney. In Georgia knows Georgia law. Insider knows Georgia juries, which is the most important part of of trying to case when we come back. I WANNA, talk about hate crimes, because at the time of the Amman archery shooting there was no hate crime. Law in Georgia and people were. Besides themselves coast to coast. When you come back I'm going to explain to you why it's really not a big deal. Especially in this case, number one and number two. Hate crimes. Are Way too over height by the media.
Stone tools suggest earlier human presence in North America
"Coming up I, though he's been looking into some stone tools, new muddling analyses suggest humans may have lived in the Americas thousands of years earlier. The many people bolts. Now the of when humans first arrived in the Americas is a hot debate for archaeologists. Well, it's actually a long debated topic as well. This is an issue that arose in the Americas in the eighteen seventies. This is David Meltzer an archeologist who investigates when humans arrived the Americas. Of the past hundred years, or so since archaeologists have gone back and forth on when this might have happened. More recently, thanks to additional archaeological, Ngoma evidence research, his off, starting to converge, go window from when humans first stepped foot on the America's. What we have coming out of archaeology is a number of sites that are sort of in the fifteen thousand years ago range. And so that gives us a minimum age. We know the people were here by that date the ancient. Is pointing to a split. Between Northeast Asian populations and those groups that would come into the Americas happening around Oh twenty, three twenty four thousand years ago, and that kind of gives us a maximum age so somewhere between that twenty, three, twenty four and fifteen is probably the window within which we got people leaving Northeast Asia crossing the Land Bridge and coming into the Americas within this window for many archaeologists. Archaeologists is most likely. The people entered the America's around sixteen thousand years ago. This is due to the prevailing well-established archaeological evidence, which is also backed up by climatic conditions before this time between sixteen thousand and twenty thousand years ago, it would have been difficult for humans to migrate across the Land Bridge from Asia Ju to the presence of giant bowls of ice in North America. This was a time period within the last ice age known as the last glacial maximum or L. GM. If you get to Alaska during the last glacial maximum your in a cola SAC, and so you've got basically two massive ice sheets better blocking your way out, but this week in nature there are two papers that pushed the date of human arrival back thousands of years before sixteen thousand years ago. One has examined the cave deep in the desert Mexico known as cheeky to the oldest dates. We have our somewhere around thirty thousand years ago. This is sipping our delion, the lead archaeologist examining the cave. Hundred years ago would push back human arrival to well before the last glacial maximum when blocked entry into North America. There were some clues that that cave have something. In those layers belonging to the GM that seemed to suggest humans and I was very skeptical, bought Chiquita Cave. If you go deeper and deeper into excavations without stopping when you hit. The Marker. Of the fourteen thousand orbiting thousand, you may get lucky. You may get into something that's been invisible for quite a while with evidence of human during the last glacial maximum, Ciprian was encouraged to look beyond the SPIRA and dig deeper to older sediments. By taking. SCIPION found an array of unusual stone tools that he thinks made by people that inhabited the cave. flaked stone tools made a very peculiar material, which is re crystallized green limestone. So they searched for this particular kinds of stone around the cave, and they consistently picked the Greens variety and used it to to make very good. Looking artifacts that are already shaped, so it's not the typical flint or obsidian. He would find many places during the Now this isn't the first evidence suggested that humans have been in the Americas this early. That oversights weather have been claims of human occupation born twenty thousand years ago, but these are being disputed by some archaeologists. Also there are comparatively few sites of this age in the US or Canada so far. If, we seem that people initially crossed into Alaska across the lumberjack known as Berangere, and then migrated south would expect to find more traces of them. Well. That's where the second paper in nature this week comes in is offered by one of the researchers who's been investigating Cheeky Wheaty Loretta Devia so we were looking at archaeological and colonel metric, so that's essentially radiocarbon dates, luminescence dates from forty two archaeological sides from north, America and Brinda by collecting and analyzing Archaeological Evidence News Associated Dates Loretta, and her co author were able to build a model of human dispersal as populations found out from Alaska across North America. Whilst? This model doesn't find new dates for out of fax. It uses known dice to suggest when people would have I reached the different sites across North America. We were able to see that. Humans were present in North America before during and after the. Maximum, but that human expansion didn't actually occur until later during a period of abrupt sort of global warming, this only did the populations were low during the last glacial maximum, and then rapidly expanded once things go warmer is also backed up by scipion archaeological evidence from the cave in Mexico as soon as you reach the layers in the deposits of the case that day to about. Eighteen, sixteen thousand you the number forty facts just. triplicated number scipion also things this could help explain what was so little evidence of humans during before the last glacial maximum. It's almost impossible to find them I. mean you have such a huge chunk of our planet with just a few footsteps on it? That's that's how I looked like I mean you can barely coli to. populated, continent, but do these papers roll back the daytime when humans were present in the Americas. Well. It may be too early to tell for David. Meltzer you heard from earlier. It wasn't involved in this research. When it comes to the cave, he thinks of a still questions be asked about the tools that were found based on radiocarbon dates that they have I think the radiocarbon dates look awfully solid. It appears as though this technology lasted for minimally according to the dates around sixteen thousand years with a stone tool tradition bat, long lasting one would expect it to have been far more widespread in the region instead of being localized to this this one cave David. Perhaps archaeologist just haven't found stone tools like this. Unless could account for why they don't appear to be widespread. He did have questions as well regarding wind don't to change over the sixteen thousand year period. They were found. The him is quite strange. CIPRIAN however argues the. Maybe that isn't so unusual. If you look at other places in the world during the Ice Age, the stone technologies did the remain the same for many thousands of years without significant changes. So that's what happens that she reach. It behaves more like stone tool industries in the old world where they remain unchanged for thousands of years for the second. Paper David Vote, but Laurynas analysis was sound. He did have some questions regarding some the sites that were included in the analysis. In some cases, these sites themselves, the data is highly ambiguous, so you've got a well dated site, but the artifacts or the indications of a human presence may just be shattered, bone or cut mark bone, and those of us that do field work that deal with this kind of thing know that there are a lot of natural processes that can mimic human actions on bone or stone, the debate surrounding when humans first came to the Americas is far from solved this newspapers at evidence to it been many ways. They raise a lot of questions as well. Perhaps though they will inspire archaeologist to dig deeper to find the first Americans at the moment subject to change if you look at the converging genomic and archaeological evidence, it looks as though people are coming in soon after the less maximum. So Sixteen fifteen and a half thousand years ago. Could they have been there earlier? Absolutely? But if you're going to make the argument, it's going to require you know well laid out case. That was David Meltzer. From Southern Methodist University in the US you also heard from Cipriani Audet Leeann from the University of Texas in Mexico and Lorena, Sarah Devia from the University of Oxford here in the UK and the University of New South, Wales in Australia, we'll put a link to the papers. Discussed in the show notes
Control of the body with the mind
"Today? We take on a luck at the medicine mystery of mind over matter, a mind over matter can be the control of the body with the mind. This might include controlling blood pressure or the rate of a heartbeat. Some monks are able to dry out wet towels by controlling their body heat. That is what usually is described as a placebo effect believing that they can do it so strongly that they can try out those wet towels. Placebo is an inert substance or belief which produces real biological effects in humans. It's so widely accepted as fact. A placebo variable included most medical tests as way of proving if say. Say A. Drug works on its own merits, or because people think it works. There are tons of experiments showing the proof of the Placebo, one of the most amusing to watch the test done by a group of Princeton students who decided to throw a Non Alcoholic Keg party for their unsuspecting classmates. The experiment who secretly filled a keg with Oh duels contained, which contains about point, four alcohol while regular beer has five percent alcohol, and then watched as their peers acted silly slur words slept on the ground, generally acted drunk, although it stereo impossible to get in toxic donald tools. These college students had such a strong belief. They were drinking standard beer that it affected their behavior. Then, there is a level of creative mental imagery that affects the physical body for an example. We look at a prisoner of war during the Vietnam Conflict Air. Force general colonel. Hall was locked a dark North Vietnamese prison for seven years most would have lost their mind. In such circumstances hall went into his happy place by mentally playing golf. Every day of his imprisonment is visualizations were extremely in-depth, included everything from hitting the ball off the tee, raking the sand traps, feeling the wind, and of course tapping the ball into the hole. Regardless of being weak and hundred pounds lighter than before his capture, one of the first things hall wanted to do after his release was play a legitimate round of golf, he was invited to the greater. New Orleans open for he astoundingly shot a seventy six, so despite his physical deterioration, not stepping on coercion over seven years his body had developed muscle memory day. Day simply on his imaginings mind over matter it's usually dismissed like deja Vu and the paranormal, but many years ago, I witnessed a lesser known form of mind over matter. I've been involved in the martial arts for over fifty years. One point in my training schools, black belts were invited to witness an example of Chee Courses Costas about eighty dollars each there were. Were about twelve of us, essentially, Chee is a life force. It exists in the human body in the martial arts. There are many stories of men who could control their cheat to the extent that they could ward off strikes or even extend she to knock over an opponent. Needless to say I was very skeptical. I was in my mid twenties at the time. Time, we were gathered in the schools large back room and told a former circle. I watched as an Asian man who looked to be in his fifties. Walk into the room. He was smoking drinking coffee from a Styrofoam Cup, he dumped coffee into a corner planter. He also ground out his cigarette. He walked to the centre of the circle placed his cup on. On, the floor upside down through our instructor, he expressed that he wanted one of the students to pick up the cup. A young black bolt directly across from me, was chosen and step forward data over and over the cup, but total a Mason said he couldn't pick up the cup all the while watching I determined that. If I was chosen, I'd fall on. On the Cup indeed was picked I stepped to the center of the circle, and at a signal from sense I extended by hand, proceeded to fall, figuring to catch myself and even push up position. The end result was that I. could not touch the cup. Indeed, our guests could not only control his chee. He was a master of mind over matter referring of. Of course to his ability to control bodily function

"My name is Lisa Hobie I live in Seattle. Washington and I was featured on episode three hundred fifty. Three. Yoga teacher cleans up and I'm also in the one hundred side Hustles Book My side. Hustle is as a home organizer I like to say. My superpower is my ability to create beautiful functional, highly personalized spaces for my clients. I got the idea for my hustle kind of like a bolt from the blue during an interview with Chris. Gilo I was at a live taping for Gretchen. Rubin Liz Crafts podcast happier. And of course I was sitting right in the front row because I'm a superfan. And Gretchen interviewed Chris About his book born for this how to find the work you were meant to do. And I had this epiphany. I love decluttering organizing and making things beautiful. It's what I do to play. I lose track of time when I do it. Because I'm so focused, I'm like a dog with a bone plus I twenty five years teaching experience. So at that moment, it dawned on me. People actually pay me for. This skill was featured on the show in December two, thousand seventeen, and since that time. A side Hustle of home, organizing became my full time job. And my full time job of Yoga, teacher Yoga decreased down to a little side. Hustle so in that time I am I worked in a hundred and forty nine homes for a total of one, thousand, eight, hundred and seventy five billable hours. This is pretty much a three year span. and delivered three hundred and fifty two carloads of my clients donations to places like the refugee women's Alliance, where I volunteer, and to the local food banks to goodwill as well as delivering specialized recycling, so things were going great. I was working five days a week. In clients homes, I was booked out weeks in advance with a wait list. And I love my work and then the pandemic hits. And everything changed and I. AM recording this on Day. Ninety of Seattle stay at home order so I'm right in the middle of a lot of uncertainty and change. I would characterize these past three months at home as a time of service and experimentation right away when the pandemic head I knew I wanted to serve my clients because this. Is US super stressful time for everybody so right away. I started teaching Yoga every morning on zoom, and so I went from my group twice a month to teaching seven classes a week. I knew I wanted to serve my organizing clients. And I have been working with clients virtually op zoom throughout the stay at home time. I wrote an e book as a thank you for joining my mail list I rewrote my Introduction ladders. I added online scheduling option I gave a few talks on zoom for a couple of different companies. I wrote and sent out three newsletters to my mailing list as constant contact. So all of this. All of it felt like a pretty steep learning curve actually. Feis I get to someone who's thinking about becoming a home organizer. This is a really good time to do a lot of reading I would read books on organising home design housekeeping habit change. Time Management Paper Management, digital management I actually pretty frequently. Get requests for informational interviews so I have a pdf of my favorite resources. I'm happy to yet email it to anyone who's interested. You can just reach out. I guess the last thing I would say is in this time of. Such huge transition. Happen All I can do is keep offering excellent service to my clients between home, organizing and teaching Yoga and getting donations to people need them and keeping stuff out of the landfill. I feel like I'm living in integrity with my values, and that I'm being of service to people in ways that are easy and enjoyable for me and beneficial for them, so we'll just take breath time.

So they waited a few weeks, gave her hundred more dollars and drove her back to Julian Ben's house. What I didn't expect her to come back and buy. That was kind of strange that she came back and wanted to buy was like okay. We'll hear what that's not naming. are this ain't something is going become a habit?

Padma Lakshmi in Search of America
"David Welcome back to. thank you so much. I'm thrilled to be here, so your latest book is about drinking French, and it covers among other things, para teeth. The French have a very different meaning associated with that word. What is para? It's not just the cocktail. Well a para chief. It's the time of day between when you're done working and when you're going to have dinner, it's kind of a transition time you know the word comes from the Latin. You know to open up it sort of mentor. Open up your appetite for dinner, but in France also people eat late the alcohol. These cocktails appear Atif are not supposed to be like a sturdy American cocktail with three ounces of alcohol so. So, just describe what therefore and what they're like well a lot of the Pera tapes that we that we associate with France such as do bony lillay variously were health tonics had quinine in them, which one distiller told me goes it. That was the CBD of the Eighteen Ninety S. it was quite everybody wanted quinine. They used to have much higher alcohol content, and then they lowered the alcohol down, so they were more drinkable. Ice Cubes in them and so forth. And I think some of that might have been modeled after pestis. When that became popular, everyone was sort of leisurely drinking list drank adding to this class over the course of several hours. You talk about cafes a lot and you say I often referred to cafes. Is The living rooms of Paris? Everyone's welcome to gather there whether you're spent the night sweeping. The streets are working the streets. How does that play into this whole story about drinking and apparent teves well people? It's hard to underestimate the importance of a French cafe to a French person. I was I was in Italy a few years ago and I was like where all the cafes and there are cafes, but it not like Paris where there's like five on every block, just wanted every corner, French equal, or so into being convivial with their friends, meeting their friends, and they use cafes, not just somewhere to get a drink, but it's really somewhere to spend time. It's sort of like your home away from home. Well. We spoken about this before. But the you talk a lot about the French are really good at doing nothing in particular, but really enjoying the moment, and that plays into your whole book drinking from Yes. Yes. I I'm somebody that always has to be doing something and I really had to dial down my you know my own expectations of of my ability to just you know, turn off in. Just sit somewhere and be. Newsy and French verb to be. and. You know it's taken me a couple of years actually I can do it. I can go to a cafe and do nothing, but it's hard. I usually have to bring a book with me or I bring my laptop. But the French are very you go to cafes in. Someone's just sitting there for like three hours. And they're thinking about stuff. which is something that I aspire to? Let's talk about specific drinks you right? I marveled at the barrels of wine, left in the open Mediterranean air to intentionally oxidized became vermouth. I didn't know. vermouth is oxidized wine I. I thought it was wine. Our alcohol flavored with herbs and some other things you know all these things were the same to me. There were a lot of discoveries you know I always felt like. Like I know Vermouth, it's a it's a wine fortified aromatized wine with herbs and spices in it, and then I went. I went down to Marcel Annoy Lee Pratt vermouth is made, and they had thousand barrels outside, and they said yes. That's the flavor of our vermouth. The wine used to come from Spain on boats, and it got oxidized, and we wanNA keep that going. So, learning about what makes all these things different and interesting such as oxidizing wine intentionally for a year in the open air, give it a little saltiness and age. Surly the point, my life where I think a little saltiness in which is. Pretty pretty good I'm all for that, I'm making my living being salty in aged. At this point you and me both. You also mention a drink which you like. Call the long hello. Could you talk about that? Because that really appeal to me, but I love the name that was invented by a bar man called Damian Bolt. WHO has a bar? Really Great Bar in Brooklyn called Grand Army, and he came up with this cocktail, which has calvados in Apple Brandy from Normandy and then elder flower liqueur, and then you top the glass office, Champagne and a little nutmeg. And what's interesting about the French is they often say Oh, you should never defile wine or champagne like. Do not put ice in it do not. All these rules, and then there's all these drinks like the Kiro. The basically that you champagne as a base you know and they you add stuff to it. It's interesting because years ago, I went to a champagne dinner. With the owner of the most prestigious Champagne House and he said to me, you're better off putting an ice cube in a glass of champagne than drinking a warm glass of champagne. So. What's the difference between entertaining and France versus entertaining here in the states? Okay well. Actually read an article once for Ex pats about how to get used to going to a fringe party, because Americans are usually boisterous and lively, and are moving around and meeting people and having fun. Where's the French are more into discussions, so it's a different atmosphere. I, often joke like I've never been to an American dinner party. Where English grammar has come up as a point of discussion and debate and I think every French dinner party I've been to. Someone has brought up something about the French language people. Say Oh, you know you use the past participle of at, and it should be the imperfect. But my partners French and he told me he goes. You need to smile more. Oh. Tell! You don't smile and Paris because they'll know. You're American I was like I'm trying to look more friend. She's like you need to smile more. David Lee evinces outdone the French. David, it's been a real pleasure. Thank you for coming back to monster. Yes, it's always a pleasure to talk to you next time I see you. I think we should have a cocktail or two pair of teeth. Thanks David Bye bye.

I love it that sounds like the all American life so so let's talk about that. How did you end up on a podcast life in recovery right? Yeah tell us a little bit about that. Let's let's find out how long you drank how long it was problem and why you decided to stop so I drank. My first drink was in high school. I was sixteen And I just drank for fun. I drank through college. Binge drinking the normal experience that so many people have a I was a binge drinker. I drink on the weekends with my friends. I did always probably drink more than I should have Drinking till I passed out or got sick. That happened for my twenties. I should back up mentioned that I did grow up in an alcoholic home. My mom suffered from mental illness. So she kind of self medicated with alcohol. It was a hard way to grow up and figured out at an early age that I was going to do anything I could to get away from that environment so I went to college married. I did all the things that I could be the opposite of the House that I had grown up in And even my drinking was opposite of hers. I know Alcoholic and many people that growth in at home. Don't want to drink or avoid it but I. I was different drinker so I could do it like I have a problem because I drink like she did so My drink and continued into my thirties.

"So with Mother's Day coming up on the next few weeks are going to be episodes dedicated to MOMS and they're all very different from each other. Different backgrounds. Different levels of severity were talking. Postpartum depression bipolar all kinds of things. Different methods of getting sober. But the thing that is the same with each of these women is that they were sick of their drinking and they needed some help learning how to not do it. I WANNA focus especially on the MOMS right now for two reasons one Mother's Day is coming up. And why not and me. Not being a mom. I definitely needs some extra representation on the show and to with kids still being at home right now during the Kovic nineteen pandemic. I know that you MOMS have a lot of extra pressure right now with suddenly having to home school to manage your day to day and to work from home all at the same time. It is a lot and there's no shortage of wine. Memes out there. I've checked they're still out there and they stop being funny a hot minute ago so I know how easy it is to buy into this idea that you need alcohol to cope right now and you don't and today's episode is a more low key one with a typical suburban housewife who didn't have any major scary rock-bottom moments and. I think my favorite thing that we said was that. Hey alcoholics where Lululemon to none of us are immune and this is a great story to share. Because she realized that she didn't have to let it get a really bad before she asked for help. Some things that I wanNA point out in this introduction. Our first that this podcast was originally started because I wanted to try and attract a very specific type of listener and surprisingly. It's not someone who's in recovery and WHO's quit drinking. This podcast is actually dedicated to the person who is still drinking. And WHO'S CONSIDERING GETTING SOBER. I was that woman for so so long and I had this idea that you had to reach a really nasty rock-bottom moment to help. And if I had known that a problem can be defined however you think it needs to be whether that's occasionally one glass of wine too many or a bottle of vodka a day you qualify for sobriety. You know you get to decide the other thing I wanNA point out. Is that while you're deciding? Your problem is not going to improve. It will progressively get worse because that's how alcohol works with anyone and everyone if you need to ask for a little bit of help to get sober. Then that means there's going to be some work involved in waiting until it's gotten really bad just means more work later on either way. It's work but stopping early. Might Save you some energy later like renovating a house whether it's a total demolition gut job or just adding on a closet either. Option MEANS YOU'RE GONNA have to tear some shit up and both are going to cost you something but you get to decide how much it's going to cost. You like Fiona Apple who's quit drinking alcohol by the way like. She's so appropriately says on this new album. I grew up in the shoes that they told me I could fill shoes. That were made for running.

They're dealing with what happens if I do this right which is always murky because you do not know which way the dominoes are. GonNa Fall. You don't know what's going to happen with and there's going to be chance and things that come in that you can't foresee and so nobody knows the answers to these and these are big boy questions that big boys have to sit down and talk about right and that's why you have to have people reasonable people John Bolton Mike Pompeo Rand Paul intelligent reasonable people care about the country disagreeing. That's not a crime compared to the governance governance we had for eight years during the Obama Administration when he is dealing with Iran is if Iran is suddenly going to start growing flowers instead of nuclear weapons because he treats meets them with respect. I mean that is a kind of childish lack of knowledge of Evil lack of knowledge of the world and you could see you could see the Middle East catch fire under under Obama if you just put a little flame on a map of the Middle East where there's trouble and violence during the Obama Administration that flame there would have been the map would've been covered in flame now not so and so that's that's important important that big boys are having big boy conversations about this stuff and that makes a big big big difference. My personal feeling is that Lindsey Graham has got it just right. I I've always thought rand. Paul is a little too much of an isolationist. Things do go wrong. You do have to stop a Hitler before for he's spreads throughout Europe. You do have to sometimes go into a country before trouble starts. It's not pleasant. It's unhappy risk. The other people sons which is a terrible terrible thing thing to do but sometimes you gotta do is just release realistic but I think but I think that Lindsey Graham to me is the voice of wisdom trump is the guy in there trump has a plan trump believes in personal negotiation. He does listen to the wisdom of other people. It's not that he doesn't listen and so you just hope that trump while saying absurdly ridiculous ridiculous things about Kim Jong UN and driving us crazy when he does that maybe will actually be able to make the kind of deal that he talks about and get Kim Jong Hang on to close down his program. That's what you're hoping for. That's what Lindsey Graham is hoping for. That's what we're all hoping for except the press who has just got his head up its zoo and just hoping that trump falls off a a the edge of the world however it's just important that people are having these kinds of conversations instead of the conversations they have on CNN instead of the conversation they had in the Obama Administration Wesley Financial if you have gotten stuck with a timeshare if you've you heard these pitches right. It's a great investment. It's a legacy for the kids leads. You can go there wherever you want whenever you want that a lot of times that turns out not to be true and sometimes with a timeshare you can't tell how much is going to cost or win is going. Lina and or when you can get out of it many owners try to sell their timeshares online and find out the hard way..

I mean that make people not guard him or foul him like he's just screwing up all the rhythms of how it is you take the shots then he actually foreshadowed this earlier in the summer with a kid asked him why he travels all the time and he said i don't travel because the restaurant call it and at that time he said i'm working on something new. That's gonna blow everybody's modern now we see it in. I gotta say sufficiently mind blown right here because when you hear about players every summer saying they're going to add something new to their game they do that. He's adding something new to the game. We haven't seen it at least not on a high volume level guys in one leg to step back from beyond the art but this is james harden finding new ways to keep the events all balancing off guard and then as we absolutely right he creates ways of doing you timing on and that allows them to draw thousands allows them to get open looks.

"This is the hardest game on miami schedule miami aiming for ten years. Now hasn't been any better than n._c. State they don't have any reason to believe that they're better than anyone even in the second tier of the conference. It's clemson and everyone else and they're no better than north carolina n._c. State over the last ten years then that was a terrible game but the really scary thing for me was this was the guy that won the quarterback controversy in for miami. How bad was more tell everybody loss of this guy afterward. Manny diaz that he was proud of his quarterback said he he went out there and to a really tough environment. It didn't blink maybe blinking would help because i clearly didn't have his eyes open for most of that game but the other thing i wanna point out as florida ah top ten program no way they're terrible and the only way that this can be a positive for miami's if they live to being a top ten program which judging on the next five or six games won't last very long florida's not terrible but those were too incompetent offenses and while he rips the quarterback. This is what i would say. There is no quarterback that could've looked good behind that offensive line allowing sacks when four guys were rushing and six guys were blocking. There were ten sacks in the game. That's more sacks accident been in a gator game. In a hundred years. You can't evaluate a quarterback way and the worst part of these that michael irvin's bescot wasting again can't wait but the guy behind the it's. The mascot is a hall of famer reggie wayne. Why are we taking his football opinions on anything at the white guy the guy that the white guy barish -demia said be about their loss to gallia. I'm scared man. I told you a couple of weeks ago. I think we're headed for international embarrassment. When the serbian coaches out here talking trash about god help the americans if we're playing playing right we just lost to a team led by patty mills. I think there are several teams in this tournament including greece that are better than this one because they've got an unto tacoma they could go to and we're countering with the charlotte hornets equivalent of kemba walker as our olympic team the glass half full then they went out and they beat kennedy yesterday so everything should be on glass half empty. We should've seen the warning signs when they lost the u._s._a. Select team in the scrimmage by twenty one points that team was headlined by guys like the quan jeffries and and christiane answer yes regular household names we you're right then the biggest international basketball n._b._a. Basketball is that the game is only forty minutes long so it doesn't matter if you have roster full n._b._a. Players if you're a team might greece or like serbia we have a bona fide star who can be on the floor for thirty six thirty seven minutes out of a total of forty. It doesn't matter what you throw out there and that's the big fear right here. It's not that there are teams out there that are loaded with the same kind of talented team u._s._a. Has it's that they have star power. That can overcome all of that. Look i am in a place in two thousand nineteen is a proud united states fan of our basketball. I'm terrified of serbia's serbia's better at this than we are. Serbia's gonna cave our heads in a way that might look like down by twenty one and how are we going to explain that when we have to explain it to people that were embarrassed beyond embarrassment telling you guys for the last eight years pap over she said big frog maintain insane goal.

It's an odd thing to say given the worship around the gladiator game given the football players consider themselves warriors but sometimes there is great strength. What might look like weakness. What a difficult decision. This must have been for andrew andrew luck to put down his pride in the middle of the battle and let the arrows descend upon him because it's simply hurt too much to continue to fight other really come on man. Come on those kinda politic come on uh-huh oh their turn to talk so now they're awake welcome to highly questionable. This amino has what do you like on the show. Today i mean you're the only one with the monologue i wrote something to about andrew luck yeah. You know it's kinda crazy to think the ten years ago this story can happen. I'm not talking about andrew luck walking away from the super bowl contending team and potentially hundreds of millions of dollars but rather the idea that the news will come come out in the middle of a game and we'd have the uncomfortable situation. We're stadium full of people would all know a very intimate piece of information about a person and that person would be oblivious. The fact that that private information was now very public because he wasn't a big long as many fans began voicing their opinion about retirement and so his lasting memory three of his last time on the football team was thousands of his hands booing and i'm going to pull up dan and bore you with a stern admonishment of how fans supposed to react to pointing running out their hopes of watching their team marked super bowl are dash to smithereens rather. I'm fascinated by how those people got to know because ten years ago twitter and have the wide retail today we find all of our breaking news not just because we're all on it but because all the news breakers have adopted as the main medium in which they do their job and that's what i want to focus on a lot of people were apparently upset adam schefter for doing his job. He broke a new story. That's what he does. Shefty doesn't know anything to look to the colts go spans. He did his job find out a fairly newsworthy fact and make it public to job. He does extraordinarily well but it's also also job he can only do if you supplied with that information and that supplier is who should be the object of derision not shefty because lever supply saftey knows what she does for a living who would do such a dastardly thing who would benefit from the release of music clearly put luck in uncomfortable awkward negative light right. You gotta start with the most agree party. The indianapolis colts neil guys. Were you talking.

I wonder what is like being proud of your son and smart feet sensitive athletic respectful asset said full head of hair feathers of having someone like that it is too late for me but for all of the father south there ratio sewn to someone when you can be proud of one someone again you look shoot miami feel good about their loss to floria own knock it off. Come on that was incompetent football on both sides of the ball miami went with a young quarterback on the road and lost the game. It could have won but only because florida's.

"It's an odd thing to say today. Given the warship around the gladiator game given the football players consider themselves warriors but sometimes the hardest bravest bravest thing to do is to quit. What a difficult decision. This must have been for andrew luck to let down his teammates and supporters and relationships in the building ending and his city days before another season in battle to pay literally hundreds of millions of dollars in future earnings to get out of the fight to throw throw away his glorious football future and glorious football fame and what has until now been his entire identity before the age of thirty he must have been in a great deal of pain to choose that and it is fitting that the last act of colts fans before his retirement was to boo him for deciding and hurt him yet some more football broke his body and mind and at the very end his city finalize the transaction by breaking his heart. Andrew luck seemed to genuinely love the football in a way that was uncommon but that love rotted over a very short time as his body betrayed him. This seems to be more of an indictment of the game than him so his very last throw is the colt was to throw it all away. Dak prescott reportedly turned down thirty million dollars a year. What do you think luck was gonna earn over the next decade. The man made eight colts fans not worry about replacing peyton bleeping manning but the hurt and the fear and the unhappiness was enough for lock that he gave away all sorts of millions and and was willing to endure the scorn and shame of teammates and fellow warriors and angry fans just to make it all go away peace of mind. That's what he bought and and a considerable price pieces of his body. That's what he gave and considerable price but the sports fan isn't entitled beast with a conditional love directly proportional to what luck did for your fantasy team that week colds fans booed either luck or the circumstances but either way the last sound luck felt from the city he always represented with grace was a hostile frustration benedict andrew he turned his body over them and the doctors and they literally chased him off the a field with their angry noise and self interest at the end was supposed to keep quietly choosing pain for us. He was supposed to keep choosing unhappiness happiness for us. He was supposed to push it all down like a man. Maybe even develop an opioid addiction for us football's daily rigors screwed up his shoulder shoulder his ankle his cat his mind his joy and his love of the game he was supposed.

"What's in your wallet? Somehow for some reason, and it's lightly inexplicable Stu gods has opened the bidding this morning with his Radha tat tat AT ADD Rambo takes all over the place that he replaces good morning with by wearing me out on the Tampa Bay Lightning. We'll get to that in a second. I was the year. The the bolts are they the bolt? Of course, they are. I didn't know whether I I knew that San Diego when they were the chargers where the bolts did they take the bolts with them to Los Angeles. I think so it's a good question. Yeah. Yeah. Tampa Bay Lightning. They go by two nicknames. The bolts they have had a uniform that said bolts on it. And so do and my favorite the Ning put it that's terrible. Is it like an apostrophe a backwards apostrophe on Ning? I'm not certain. Not avoid that one though. I think can you put this on the poll at lebatardshow that would be a bad one for you to mispronounce at lebatardshow are either the first of all are there to bolt in sports two bolts nicknames in sports because I had not heard the Tampa Bay Lightning. Call the bolts and the second question. I'm the second one is why the hell were you watching the lightning last night? Oh. Me and he was probably betting on second season. I mean, it's playoff time. Dan, anything can happen. And usually does in the NHL playoffs. Why a love it so much. So we'll get in a second to what happened in the bolts game in the second. Because we got takes. I got in a second. Hold on a second I want. Yes. I don't have an urgency to get to Tampa Bay Lightning's talk and give a little respect to the blue jackets. If you didn't have respect for them before the game. They took it last night. Yeah. How about islanders penguins? The pens. I mean, but use lightning. There's no plural. Enlightening? Did. I I said Lightnings. Yes. You did. I oh my God. I'm putting an S at the end of things like an old person the plural of lightning lightning anyways. Still calls him. Brett farve 's. That's an that's only an old person thing right to put SS at the end of things and remove as his as his are actually at the end of things. Let me ask you. This question though, because something interesting has happened in the age of player empowerment, we've seen a lot change in basketball over the last nine years and yesterday the crew that has been the NBA since LeBron did that TV show the decision and did banana boat stuff. They took over an arena in Brooklyn to throw a party for Dwayne Wade. It became about these guys as the league has been about these guys for a while. I wonder how Kevin Durant image would be different if he were on the banana boat because these guys have run, the the sport and friendship and activism. They have been the stars of the sport here. But when you look at what happened last night where people are emotional about to nowhere, non playoff teams extending. To Dirk Nowitzki. And Dwayne Wade accolades and love at every turn it's a bit confusing to me from this. Regards to got men we loved to rip these athletes we love to say negative things about him. We love to judge their character. We love to say how they're not enough or where to blame them. Our entire argument culture and sports is picking fights about who's to blame for this thing to have a night last night where two people are being celebrated like that. They're great full profoundly grateful four that gratitude and the one person who dared say anything negative about Dwayne Wade got shouted down in arenas from Miami. To Brooklyn with Paul Pierce sucks chance. The one person who dared like that is not the ecosystem that we live in sports radio. Ecosystem is not celebrate the athlete with gratitude. Wow. That was amazing Pierce did suck in Brooklyn though. Agreed..
