"What else may take houston plus the seven and a half Think this is just too many points. I mean this is like the build up. is that like you houston has quit And then you know that that is built into the line here that they've just kind of they're just gonna kinda give up because they have nothing network but in the nfl often this is just not the case like teams still continue to play as hard as as they would like. There's just this this you know. These guys are professionals and they still want to win this game. I seven and a half is too many points against indianapolis okay. We're gonna take your team the football team plus the six against seattle. Obviously this line is is is much higher because of pathogens versus smith. Yes but honestly like. I'm not i'm not sure in what world that that happens. Is that much worse than smith as the most conservative You know he he gives you the the the least upside and i think with the defense that might have been what they really wanted Haskins him has higher variants. And i honestly think that this is a he gives them a better chance to win this game. It may not be a situation where he gives them better chance to cover but he gives them a better chance to win. This game in this line is just inflated and and honestly you wanna bet washington you might might as well wait because it seems like it's going to continue to go up okay. what else. He got We're going to new orleans. The three and a half against kansas city Everyone now is actually jumping off the hill bandwagon. But he was not the reason they lost that game. The reason they lost that game was that first half where it probably didn't have a lot of understanding of what to do against hurts and and their defense played poorly. I mean there's no use for what they get from defensive standpoint but I still believe that this is a situation where tasting him. he'll play well and and i mean listen. Kansas city is the best team in the league. But again like. I think this is situation. Where new orleans. Plus the three and a half new orleans is probably the second best team in the nfl I just like them getting the points here. Okay for us yet. Lost one is going to be minnesota minus three These two teams. Are you know not. It's funny because this is like a loser leaves home You know game. But i i like minnesota the way they're you know they played Towards the end of the season whereas like chicago's besides last week has been kind of trending down In in minnesota here as a three point favorite the thank you. Jeff jeff and rufus. Peabody are doing a podcast called bet the process the only one. I might disagree with here. Because i don't think chicago's any good at all. I don't know. I think. Kansas city's kansas city. Wins all the time you know what i mean. They just look like the best team in football. Don't they do you. They look like the best team. I mean they are the best team in football so again. This isn't a matter of like me saying. Kansas city's that it's just a matter of me saying three nine points Against what. I consider to be the second best team in football that You know arguably needs a real bounceback here and neither narratives about the numbers would say that. This line should be less than three and a half In the that three number that three threshold this big so get three points. Yeah the half. The half is meaningful. Thank you jeff. Talk to you next week. Jeff ma boys and girls. We will take a break. We'll come back with email and jingle when we return. I am tony. Kornheiser.

"Freddie kitchen freddie kitchens who coached the browns for an hour and a half and was terrible choice from the moment he was named. And i said this on said there's a one year guy. And i've never been more right on that guy. But he gets to call the plays because jason garrett has down with the corona virus call the plays against his former team. That's that's pretty cool right. i mean what. What are you hoping for in that. One I this is. This is a game with with with. I don't think it's the worst game of the week or anything like that by by a long shot because the giants are still fighting for division carter browns if the browns lose this game. They're in trouble because baltimore swept them so baltimore has the head to head tiebreaker. So there there's a scenario that exists for miami. You know that takes care of business at baltimore runs the table. And if the browns slip up the browns don't get in And the browns after this game. Play the jets next week which i don't think i mean i. The browns play sea level. See bindis deep loss. Game probably still win and then the browns week seventeen play the steelers and if the steelers win against the bengals this week they clinched the division and maybe pittsburgh still playing for a number one eight in week seventeen. I think it's much more likely given all their injuries. How much they're lifting around. How bad their quarterback looks how bad their entire looks. I think it's far more likely that week. Seventeen is there by week. And and because of the age and because of The the pr the productivity or lack thereof by the quarterback. I think tomlin is giving everybody. He can possibly give the week off in week. Seventeen so this is another one. Where if if the browns are going to stub their toe Much like the dolphins. It probably happens right here in week. Fifteen if it happens at all yeah giants have a really good defense but bradberry. You know that the corner is one of the top two or three players in you know. He's on the car The covid restricted list now As well as jason garrett in this situation you never know about an hour and day to day. Who else may join them. By the time we get to kick off the browns offense. I mean you look at what they did in the first half against tennessee in the second half against bottom on you put those two together. That's about as dominant of an offensive performance. As you're going to get. I mean tony of the second. Half against baltimore's thirty nine plays Two hundred ninety yards. Twenty eight points. they were averaged seven point four yards per play the only time they got off the field in the second half was the first downs Interception that feel through to ties. How's it then. There's no doubt about that. i'll give you. I'll get you out of here on this because it's an it's an analogous game to the giants and browns really. It's washington in seattle playoff implications. Both ways do you take the washington football team seriously. At this point. I take the defense seriously. Kate chase young seriously. I sweat seriously. I take a pain seriously. i take jonathan allen seriously enough That that front is legit I was never a big math guy. Tone. i was more of a history and english guy. But i do know this much. I know this equation when my four can beat your six. I'm gonna win some games. Then if i'm now forcing my forest forcing you to keep seven or more into block that i'm now taking you out of your office. I'm taking you away from what you wanna do in modern football i'm taking you out of spread formations. I'm taking you out of attacking my secondary the way you would like to. I'm now forcing your modus operandi on offense to be protecting your quarterback from my four and that numbers game works in the favour of anybody any any defensive coordinator and football coach. I think boston's playing the best football of his career They're getting a little more into the linebacker. So now it's not just a fun for its front seven And and that's able to cover up a lotta awards and now it's not just a defensive fear but it's also a scoring defense when you put the ball on the ground when you fumble when you hear footsteps and you tipped the ball up in the air and they catch it they can take it to the house and they're they're probably going to have to do that. A time or two more data is really really limited. I mean even what. Alex smith in there and he protects the football and he does a lot of good things but the last month. He's averaging five point seven yards per attempt. I mean there's teams in this league. Run it for over five yards passing game. Five point seven Getting gibson back at some point would be huge. You have the chance to hit a home run on the ground because you're not gonna hit a lot of home runs through the through the air Maybe you get carries hands You know on a their own slant a few times and he picks up a bunch of yak yak is absolutely imperative for them down just to have some explosive plays where they get themselves in better field position where they flip the script of the game.

How're you doing great and it's nice to connect with other essential ill people always yes. So Jodie, how did you come into the world of essential oils and specifically breen related issues? While I had kind of started my life as a journalist and then I started working business had my first kid who was easy had a second one twenty two months later less easy and it turned out it was nutrition that was really throwing off his little system, and so I spent so much time banging my head against the wall until I figured that out the one that I realized how important food was in. Terms of your mood, your energy, your ability to focus I went back and got a degree in nutrition was helping other people a Lotta MOMS but you know Kinzer squirmy and it's hard to keep them still the test them. So I learned this technique called missile testing that allowed they could deliver. It was still really an easy way to identify remedies which was helpful when my bottom fellow my man has been was bipolar. Antonio suicide and had to be moved to a residential treatment facility and the kids were five and seven, and once we got him all Seta. I collapsed my adrenals have been running a ten year marathon and it just it had taken a toll on me but that wasn't very sustainable because I was suddenly a single parent I had a job and. It no matter how exhausted I wear they still needed to be fed the laundry John need to be cleaned exactly. So it was then that a friend actually gifted me a box of essential hills because I had been trying everything I could think of all the things that have worked in the past really failed me and I was so desperate and and really so fatigued both physically, and mentally that I just muscled. Tested you know as anything in here, going to be helpful for measuring all's and my experience muscle testing is if something works, it's almost like it's a very loud signal and it was such a strong signalise league felt optimistic and I was like Oh you know identified five oils and then it occurred to me like what do I do this? I normally get one and I realized that I can combine them so i. Each oil and kind of combine them in the right amounts, put them on my adrenals on my lower back and for the first time in a month felt like myself again felt like Oh my God I go running. Do you have to remember what those five oils were by chance? Yeah. It's actually the combination that I now have in my adrenal gland it's time Rosemary Rosemary Stimulatory Manuka cinnamon and. Gabum in as you know oils ever powerful in their own but when you combine them, there's synergy that occurs. amplifies Fairfax, and so they're stimulatory oils but they seem to be adapted genetic Yeah. So you re rub them on the on your lower back over the dreams. Yeah. Man I just recently had this. Huge moment with oils. Again, you know you have them all the time you know you just keep having them and you're like Oh my God big things really do work and it was when I was cutting out coffee. Drinking how day in the morning which verdon normal person is probably fine. But for me, it was like really recognize system and so I just cut it out cold Turkey and I was. I. Was just I had Migraines I was just miserable and so yeah I. Busted out some oils and rub them on major knowles and then put like hot pack over top. And it really Mike would bring me back to life. It was it was an amazing feeling. So That's interesting that that was sort of your in for oils was it anyways it was so quick and I thought this is amazing. You know and also I had been working as a practitioner and you know someone's deficient in vitamin B wants an easy fix ray if you're trying to trigger your pineal gland or at least Melatonin were balanced hypo film, it's get into areas of the brain. That's tricky. There all these kind of low hanging fruit, easy things and then harder things and so once I had that experience of wow, is work then. I kind of was reverse engineering witched do right Oh. My Gut is really compromised I league. So makes sense that no matter what I'm taking three my digestion pathway isn't really getting a simulated but something I can topically apply that could sue the skin into the bloodstream immediately. So okay. That makes sense why the other remedies were working in while this worked really quickly right? Just sort of bypasses the gut there and that it makes total sense to me when I hear that that explanation of getting the oils into your bloodstream, which is gonNa then go to all these parts of your body really get in deepen in my mind it seems very. Pretty straightforward just like you would use any form of planned medicine or any sort of you're getting good stuff into your body and letting it do its job. But for a lot of people they just they can't look past essential oils is just things that smell good. You know. Later Cat Are concentrated plants and guess what plants and the derivative of plants are fifty percent of pharmaceutical drugs. That's really the basis for all of our Madison are just concentrated in somehow they've been diminished or kind of relegated to this weird around when they're really the core

Sometimes it's really helpful for people because they don't have to travel. We live in a rural eighty through the services are the city. Some people have to travel quite lonely so they don't have to travel anymore says great for them but obviously you also have the barriers of technology says some people find getting online more difficult to find it more stressful. How do the online appointment? So this kind of pros and cons but as a huge change for our So what kind of things might be will be coming to you with the moment at the moment.

Emo- services have kept running in our area so we also have in our own set up a new service which is look psychological cyrus or for anybody who's been affected by covered so there's been a lot of innovation associates fitness jazz and the services ongoing. So it's very difficult to come from a general perspective because it's so different across every service and every region bazaar only I think the impact Manchester's led to lot of innovation a lot of innovation with technology innovation with services ultimately thinking about how we run the services. And that's not all bad lots. We'll have a really good outcome for people.

Haven't they and I sort of really explaining lots of stuff around mental health? And they've got really good tips and everybody's just kind of cute to look at and so when did that? When did you come up with that? Well I've always drawn as part of my clinical sessions so people would come into session. Legal we with our scribble bits of any s scrap p par with joins on it and then come back the next week often with the same join with them and then we'd scribble more in it and I never really thought about taking any further. It's always been something I've just don t kind of what we've been talking about. And also the Person House with them during the week or two weeks until I see them again and it kind of I came on social media really kind of with idea of want to promote evidence based mental health.

But I'm really glad I did because it's results in the big and and I ask you start thinking well well well initially start. Jin Better joins the people I've seeing them not scrappy. Nice joined take away with them and then I thought well actually more people can benefit from this accused. You know the same things. Come out with people again. There's so many similarities and people's presentations obse there's differences across people but there's the same issues coming up again. I thought more people could benefit from not so started drawing them out and put them on instagram. And really that was kind of the. You know just bought an you how to do so. I thought well instagram and see what the pickup is. If people enjoy them and opposite like you say they have taken off and really Brian.

You could see it coming Tony before doc even talked if just listening to players I talked to a few people in the bubble and a lot of people outside of it and this was percolating. Yes.

It's always interesting to me win people combat these conversations by giving me alternate things that are happening in the community and I understand that I I don't condone any balance I. Think all violence are wrong. But if you look at the sustainability of acts violence that have happened against African Americans. It's happening since the beginning of the time of our country. So and look at the Jim Crow laws. There's a lot of things that go into this to gentrification and people don't want things to get political I remember I said this a couple of months ago when we had the pandemic an, all this stuff was happening and people say we don't want politics sports. I just said, put your seatbelt on. Put Your seatbelt on SK, going to be one hell of a ride and I feel like we're just at the beginning of it. So, for anybody if you don't have the mental endurance the handle this if you feel that the. The combination of politics and sports is something that you don't want to be involved with. Going to tell you now. Don't watch sports in. It's not just going to pertain to the. NBA. Now moving, it's going to move in the NFL. It's going to have conversations around the NHL it's going to happen in MLB. That's just the reality of where we're going to be now two thousand, twenty s who move forward. It's a new reality for people you may not like it, but it's what the new norm is going to become knowledge sports is will.

Doesn't allow you to go in gun somebody down we you were found guilty of doing that. Throw away the key, just like you would do anybody else that may slow it down because as I said, the other day I have an eight year old son that is afraid of sirens for whatever reason whether he seen it in a newspaper online when he's online listening to television out of his room, what whatever the case may be it has to stop. Immediately certain things like elimination of qualified immunity right that they have within these unions police unions you think about things like creation of mandatory civilian review boards these things that you can start doing at a local level to where you can provide accountability I think that's a word that we really need to focus on accountability for police officers.

"Get back on track WHOA Jeez here. Thankfully to tell us what might happen here. Obviously, it's a fluid situation Adrian. I. Guess. The first thing we want to ask you is, what are we expecting today like what is going to happen today meeting Liz I have no idea what's going to happen today guys yesterday was. A remarkable day and one that I don't think any of us who cover the NBA. WHO Who've covered sports and and in my generation Bo forget but to set the table for today. The players having eleven am meeting here in the bubble. And the owners have a board of governors call at the same time. I'm pulled eleven am obviously that'll be done virtually and so simultaneously, those two groups we'll be meeting and the players. I think after a night, it was an emotional day. It was an emotional meeting they had. With most of the players in the bubble coaches were there last night there came a point where? The players asked the coaches to leave so they could hash it out amongst themselves. The teams I was told broke up into groups. and then they're going to continue that conversation this morning but I mean what's at stake is simply This season and are the players as a group going to decide to move forward. Continue the playoffs by all indications that the three games that are scheduled today. Not. Going to be played, the League hadn't officially. announced it but every indication we got in the last night regardless of what they decide moving forward that those three games later in the day. Wouldn't be played, but the players have more to work through and talk through. And consider a lot of different. Consider a lot of different scenarios. And and ultimately consequences of what it would mean to shut this bubble down. You're there in the bubble woes and you could get and I just WanNa know like what is what's the feeling is like does feel like NAM empty and just spooky and? What's that feeling like? I. Think the last several days keyshawn. and. You could feel a building you could watch on I think you guys could watch. On television and and read what people are saying and see. The interviews with George Hill and Fred Van Vliet. and. The emotion that players were carrying. Since the shooting of Jacob Blake earlier. In the week. And how that resonated not just all over the country. But here. and. On top of the emotion and Guys have been here a long time and it wears on you and guys miss families guys feel. At times like their captive in this place it I get it. It's a resort like I. Don't mean to. It is a resort and I get it and. All of us are lucky to be able to work. In, this country right now and a lot of people can't but there is a cumulative effect about being away this long. And you add on top of that. the horrific nature of that shooting. Another in a series of them in years of decades. Of them a century of them and so. data impacted this place at impacted those inside. And It was a domino effect yesterday of once. The bucks made the decision to knock him out of the locker room and not play. And then how it impacted the other teams and lead to that meeting last night that was pretty rot times. The to La teams the LA clippers. The Lakers have two of the hour say most powerful voices in professional sports in Genie Boston. Steve, bomber what type of influence can they have on the rest of the NBA owners to get something done in favor of the players? It's a good question I think the question is. And I think what the players Were spending last night doing. And and previously, it's been an ongoing conversation here. But is there something and and I and I know in the meeting last I a lot of players. Disgusted I know CJ mccollum was who's an executive on the players committee or on the on the Executive Committee of the Players Association. mccomb the Blazers Jaylen Brown the Celtics war leaders. in the Union and top players in league talked about having a plan of action and the bucks in the locker. Room. In those hours after that they after they decided not to play. Working with their own ownership in Milwaukee to get on the phone the Attorney General of the Lieutenant Governor in Wisconsin to talk about ways to move forward. To try to impact. that. Particular case. In in their state in Kenosha. And so you saw players already beginning to do that yesterday now. How does that continue today? What what players are asking themselves I know what organizations are asking players when they got back to the rooms. Last my back to the hotels. What is the endgame if we don't play? One is that what is it that we wanNA accomplish outside of the bubble outside of this environment outside of the platform that you have right now to play. play NBA Games and speak to the world through. Through this. What does that look like and so I think that's all going to be part of the conversation today with the players and with the owners if they kinda reconnect after those two meetings.

"Notice recognition as we go farther in the playoffs I think it's a it's an amazing platform for them and again I I feel it's already done a great deal of good. Now, you know Jacob Blake situation was so dis- dispiriting some disheartening for them feeling. Oh, we're doing all this and another. Another incident happens like this. Another man shot So I think from from that standpoint you know. It's like they took a punch to the gut and it back them up a little bit. But I still feel progresses manmade I really do and I think it would continue if they continued with this forum. But it's hard for me to say that because for these young men and you know who live it every day and feel that that they're missing out on doing something that could be more important outside of the bubble that reach individuals that decide. Mike Real quick. Obviously all these players, you don't have a lot of points of reference to the fact that they are isolated. Right don't have a chance to sit down and talk with other people. Is it inside the bubble kind of dealing with that that lack of exposure to other people to help you ultimately come to a conclusion. What I think that's again this is the unknown and the bubble. We all thrive on human contact. You know whether it's family or friends and I think that that plays a role in everybody's mindset here, and it's that's been one of the strange things you know just for me. Personally, you know obviously I love to call games but maybe my favorite part of the job or is the relationships. And the relationships that you you you build with coaches and with players and you know I think it's for me. It's been an honor to to get to know so many of these young men not not as just as basketball players but as as sons and fathers and husbands. And I have so respect and admiration for them. So I'm down here and I miss that part terribly that's the part that I dislike the most because we're in a different bubble tier than the players and coaches. So we have not had one second of direct contact. Everything is on a zoom call on a phone call and that's an important to me, and that's the best part of it all. So that plays into it that lack of human contact in terms of you know feeling normal, it's not normal. There's nothing normal down here and listen I get it. They have they're staying in luxury hotels we're staying beautiful hotels making money all the amenities you want. But it's still it's a strange strange feeling being down here Mike and Tony said it pretty well, he said every day is Wednesday. And it's it. It feels like that. It's it's just. It's hard to put into words as there's part of it surreal and again like I said some days you feel, okay this a day some days. Now, what am I doing here and I know the players that's what they're. They're thinking sometimes from day to day and it's it's and everybody deals with it so differently so it's it's hard to You know it's it's hard to sometimes. I don't want to say it's hard to get through it but it just says such a different experience that it's not. It's a challenge. It really is a challenge is probably the best would say. Yeah groundhog day affect you call. Lebron winning the championship in two, thousand, twelve and two thousand thirteen with the heat. Of course that seminal win in two thousand sixteen to bring Cleveland Their First Championship in many people believe this Lebron's last best chance. Let's just hope here at least one more game with you jeff and mark really appreciate the perspective this morning. Thank you so much. Thanks, guys, and best of luck with the show. Congratulations. Thanks Mike Mike Breen..

Seeking Wisdom From All Moms with Laura Prepon
"Hey guys welcome back to Mount Breen. I'm Daphne and malaria and today we are chatting with Laura poupon. She is the actress that you know and love from all kinds of shows oranges Lou. Glad that seventy show. She's a fabulous director. She is also not only a new mom to a newborn also amount to a toddler and also an author of a few bucks. Actually but a brand new book called you and I as mothers that is all about her conversations with a variety of women myself included about what the journey of being a woman. Looks like after you become a mother? This is the second time that Laura has been on so you also might want to listen back in season when she was one of our very first guests and she just has such an amazing energy and so much wisdom. Listen you'll have some laughs maybe some tears and you'll learn something enjoy Hi I'm Laura Ripon and I'm an actor director writer and my book you and I as mothers is is out now. Where can we find you? Can we all you online at war preformed across across the board is how you can follow me on line? Well how how are you physically feeling you? Don't okay I'm doing okay. I I am so thankful that my son came before all of this really went down and before the isolation happened because I have friends that are either about to go into Labor or had a child where their partners aren't even allowed in the hospital. I mean it's an having to labor and go through all of that stuff without your partner. Can you imagine like women do it but without without having any kind of support system? I can't imagine yeah no I was actually thinking exactly of that because I WANNA bring up. What what I was What I've been reading about you. I don't know about a month ago. You came up with an article about your miscarriage And I had also had a miscarriage of four months back in the fall. I was supposed to be having a baby right now. Office your due date with Mike. A couple of weeks from now and to think about that. This would be the time when I was going to be having a baby and it just hit me really hard. Of course. I'm still so sad. What happened right? Just sort of this strange turn of events of of how things play out and what that experience with e. like thinking about my friends who do who are due around the same time that I was and just their experience at the rain also thinking I mean I remember having my first my first child. My daughter my pediatrician. Who was new at the same time Ever have before and she said to me she said you're one job. The first month is is baby cannot get sick and I was like. We're not going anywhere grocer. No this no that. That's like a whole new level of anxiety right now. Were afraid of us. Getting sick let alone leads little newborn. That has never had anything before. So it's extremely scary times right now. You're definitely puts things into perspective for sure. I mean already like you just explained. You're already so scared about anything happening. Especially in those first months because their immunity is still being built up so we haven't left. I mean thank goodness we have a little area in our backyard where we can go out and get some Sun. And but it's I just think about all the parents that are in just apartments to where it's hard for them to have any kind of connection with nature and just get some sun on your face and get those vitamins that we so desperately need. Even though I'm I'm like a vampire and I'm never in the Sun. I still slather myself with sunscreen and like get out in the side try to absorb the vitamin D. You know but it's it's so important to be able to because we haven't gone out the front of the House but the back we do we'll go out and get a little bit of Sun on our face but it is. It's scary times out there but things like this that you guys are doing to help build community and be a support group especially for MOMS is so incredible. So thank you guys. I think it's giving all of us a chance to kind of like take a step back and reevaluate and reprioritize in in parenting specifically. How I mean there's obviously is but how has it been different this time around welcoming a baby home? And how have you communicated it to your daughter and what this experience been like for you Just trying to figure out and navigate that new experience right I mean. Will you know the facts that I was able to Daphne to talk to you also for the book and you shared all these wonderful things about like how you juggle it all and keep your relationship amazing fresh and creative while being this amazing mom so thank you for being part of it and I can't wait like everybody to read everybody to read the stuff that you can share which is amazing? But we just say this is. She's talking about low Laura amidst having multiple children and everything else that she does also found time to write a brand new book. That's out called you and I as mothers and it's a collection of an incredible the way that you want to hear from some famous names also some friends just like people whose perspective on motherhood you really would like to share told in a way. That's really candidate. Because you're talking to your friends which I thought was such a cool idea. Thank you I I. I'm really excited for people to read it but you brought up a really good point. Which was that well. First of all I just want to touch on the fact that the what was really important to me and what I found there was a void with was I feel like. There's a lot of books about parenting. But and there's a ton of books of her pregnancy. Which is the nine months of your life that you go through and I feel like that's really covered but right after that I felt like there was a void in terms of material and voices that we can turn to about the rest of your life. You know and I. I felt like there were parenting books and this is. I'm circling back to answer your question but I felt like they were parenting books. But there weren't there wasn't a book that focused on the woman and the mother herself that the I could personally relate to and when I you know when I first had my daughter I struggled with a lot of postpartum anxiety and I didn't even know what that was. Whenever I heard about postpartum I always thought about depression. And you know I think of what a Lotta people realize. Post-partum just means after birth. It's literally just what happens after birth and I had never known weddings. What postpartum anxiety was. Because I didn't really struggle with anxiety about much and I kind of was used to putting myself in really stressful situations. Some which I probably never should have done but I did anyway. And that's a whole different thing but but for me. The the main change for me was from baby. Wanted to baby two was that I did a lot of healing and a lot of processing the through the process of writing this book and I felt like by the time. My second baby came around. I had I knew what to expect and I knew that I was going quickly into promoting the book and I and my family and I knew what to do to make sure I was supported. Where where the first time around? I had no clue. I had no clue and I feel like a lot of women feel shameful or a. I remember talking to a friend of mine. Who's a mom who I before? When I was pregnant the first time I said what do you struggle with most as a mom? I WANNA get. I WanNa know what to look out for. And she looked back over both of her shoulders and then leaned in. And I'm like why are you whispering? Why is this is great? I'm like this should not be. I mean I did. I truly didn't understand and then now that I am a mom and I'm spoke to so many wonderful mothers of all different ages. I there's a lot of. It's like shrouded in secrecy about the fact that we struggle and it's the most incredible joy she leaned in and said I struggled. That was hurt. What would we know? Hey she leans in and she's like girl. It's really hard. And that's what she said to me.

"Of the fifteen year free. Throw Shooting Competition with Scott Brooks that I have now heard about from two separate sources including Scott Brooks and the way they tell it. It just can't possibly have unfolded like it's too good to be true so please tell the story right. So Scott Brooks is a backup point guard third string point guard on the ninety seven necks and That's one of my early years and we're about the same age so we became became good friends back then so it was. It was a really nice relationship and one day. We're in Phoenix and He was he was shooting free throws and I always killed him. I said I said the only reason you're on this team is 'cause you can shoot free throws and I can shoot free bed of new. You know. Just making fun of him because he didn't play a lot that year although he was he had a ten year career as a scrappy tough player. He was a good player Anyway but I would would be breaking his horns about so he goes. Oh Yeah you think you'd better presold shooter. Let's go so we go to shoot free throws and we're going to have a contest. I'M GONNA shoot fifty free throws I'll shoot five. He'll shoot five. I'll shoot five. That's where we're going to do it so I hit my five hits US first five. I hit my next i-it's is next by. I actually hit by I. Thirty five free throws he hit his first thirty five free throws and all this matching up so far the stories are matching so Jeff Van. Gundy is is the coach and it practices over. Let's go to the bus and you didn't waste another moment so he had to go. So contest is over. I declare victory because I tied an NBA player. He's like no no no. We'll we'll finish on time but we never got back to with that season for some reason. It just just never happened now. We go to. I'm going to say twenty eleven. I'm doing an Oklahoma City game. Might even the first game of the season or at least one of the first couple of games of the season and we go out. Use The coach of the Thunder. We go out to to practice and practice over and I'm out there shooting free throws afterwards just waiting for him to finish with the media and he comes out and he says hey. Let's finish our because we talked about it over the years. Let's finish our our contest. I'm like okay. Let's go let's go now. I've been shooting around for about ten fifty minutes so I was warmed up. He had taken a shot and probably days. So we do it again with fifty free throws same thing. I do five. He does five while I hit Mike. I forty five. He hits his first forty five. So we're even again stories are matched up. I don't know if you guys who've agreed to guards are like ninety four ninety or something like this point correct so I get up to two forty eight. I hit forty eight URL. I missed the forty nine and then I hit number fifty. So I'm forty nine hundred fifty. So he goes and he goes forty six forty seven forty eight forty nine and now he looks over takes the ball with his left hand. He's a righty winks and banks. It in with his left hand for the fifty zero just walks away. He maims banks it and he didn't tell banked it. Oh Yeah it was. He was so cocky about it and so arrogant. I was so mad if he just hit them. All in a ride is fine but he had to be a show. Often uses left hand with a banker so in his version of the story. You went over these fifteen years in two sessions. You went ninety nine out of a hundred at. He went one hundred one hundred. I don't know if the raw math one hundred attempts but that's that's an like I don't care if you're an MBA player or you're you're a good high school player and you obviously shoot around ninety nine out of one hundred or eighty nine out of ninety or whatever it is like. That's pretty frequent spectacular. I wouldn't never be able to do it again but I think I was motivated by just my desire to beat him. And it was eighty-five free throw because we only shot thirty eight hundred eighty four at eighty five and never know you never know. His guys get older. These stories to become Paul Bunyan Esque. Scotties already started adding free throw attempts. Didn't but I was my shining moment as a free throw shooter. Can I ask you a couple more quick questions before I let you go low? Of course. You're a mets fan? Correct lifelong crazy tran. What's what's the pick pick either side of the spectrum? I know that mets fans tend to. I know which side of the spectrum most met fans go to. I'm also a fan growing up. What's your best or lowest moment as a met fan either one The best one was was obviously game. Six in eighty six Because you know we were done it was it was over and soon as great and scalise call is great balls dribbling towards L. Buckner through Buckner. Right thing was a mess. I was always a bill buckner fan for some reason. I loved him as a player so I did feel bad form but it was such a special thing and I was. I was working as a producer. Nbc Radio and I was covering that game and the press box was so packed. They were putting people everywhere and I was in the back of the red sox radio. That's the only room they had and I lost my objectivity as a member of the media. And I'm going crazy. And they kind of turned around. They were not. They were not pleased with my conduct. But that was that was probably that was probably the best moment The worst moment I think was probably When Carlos Beltran took that that third strike against the Cardinal? Because that's the one you know. We were a great team that year and I thought that was a year where we're GONNA win it. All in we were right there and that was prior to that game and each other's made that spectacular catch one great catches history So probably not although sixty all members from sixty nine is our special. But that's when I was a little older and and go to more games so I think those two probably or the lowest moment for me is I won't Belabor 'cause I mentioned it before. His in is indisputably game. One of the two thousand world series. Because that's a loss at Yankee Stadium. I bought the Yankees and I my hate for the I mean hate is a word. I don't use lightly and any other real context but I I hate the Yankees hate and I I would have given. I'm actually afraid to think about what I would have given for the mets to win that World Series Am. I actually scares me a little bit. But when they lost game one it is actually it was one of those Gut Punch losses. Where I I just knew. Deep in my soul world series is over even though it was only one game I knew it. It's amazing how certain series the whole tone of a series can happen game. One can decide everything. Obviously there's still games to be played but You're right. That was one of those. It's set the tone for the whole thing I'd like you that that As a mets fan I used to root for the Yankees. Because my my my great friend Michael K I wanted to see him Called you know World Series Championships but after he won a couple of rings with that. I'm like okay. That's enough but some of my favorite players. I love Roy White as a kid I loved Thurman Munson and I love Don Mattingly and how do you not love Marianna Ribera? Even if you're a Yankee hater I can't I can't just to sing his name. Just shivers just went down my body because that was the big. I don't look. I'm not a baseball analyst or anything like that but I just remember thinking. We can argue about who? The Best Player is on all these Yankee teams that were so dominant for six seven eight nine years Marian Rivera to me was the MVP of those teams because when you face the Yankees in the play offs and you like I just rooted for everyone. They played so. We is like every Yankee opponent in the playoffs as we to me. If you're losing in the fifth inning like panic was already beginning to set in because in big playoff game they can throw them out there for two and a third or so you just like you. I'm I'm sure teams felt that same panicky was. He was with the exception of a couple of moments. You know the Luis Gonzales blooper. The Red Sox come back in. Oh four the Indian series ninety five before they before they become dominant me was like you just couldn't do anything it was over. Jordan like thought he's on okay. This game is over same. Same feeling you had last question question. I that's a lot of guests in this depressing Scary time and I know you're prepared with an address. I'm GONNA ask you. What is the hardest you have ever left in a movie Just watch the movie the other day Because my kids are to my younger ones are back home with us now during this isolation time and it's the birdcage all interesting. Have you ever seen the birdcage? The Nathan there are there to bird cages right there too not just the way in Robbie Williams and Gene Hackman hankers area. Who is one of the most talented people in the entertainment field that for them the performances they put on? It's just like one belly laugh after another. I just watched it the other night. That's that's my favorite comedy. I I I have so many hardy laughs during that course of Greg. I'll watch that again because I don't I don't remember it very well So now what yours. I have said this on a couple of cases number one The South Park movie Were THEY I. You probably have never seen the South Park movie. I'm guessing. There's an opening song in the South Park movie that I literally fell off a couch. So good and then Doug thing do you still laugh as hard if you go back watching different kind of laugh because you can't duplicate the shock value of the first time right but it's it's justice deep of an admiration laugh for it's just all out cleverness and bravery to make a song like this So that that's the one that I give all right Mike Breen. You've given us way too much time. Just one of the best guys in the hall of Famer. I mean. That's that's up. We all miss hearing your voice I will be contacting you later. Shoots ladders negotiations with your But just fans have been listening to you for so long. You're the best. Thank you for coming on Zach. My it was an honor. Thank you thank you so much..

"Knicks question the ninety five series between the Nixon. The Pacers is an I. Don't it's a second round series? I don't know if it's underrated because NBA diehards all. Remember it but like it's book ended in Game. One by Reggie Miller eight points and nine seconds and game. Seven ewing missing the potential game-tying Finger. Roll to send game seven into overtime. Both in New York like that is crazy. Assira UP A book end series as it's ever happened in in basketball but like those two games are those are crazy iconic moments. It was the underrated rivalry in that. Stretch for them. To shoot a bulls were special. But that was one-sided For the most part the Miami Heat rivalries usually considered the best because all of those series went to the final deciding game specify seven. But this one you know. These teams were almost mirror images of each other and there was real healthy competitive disdain between the two. I don't think it was much hate as the Miami Series. There was a little more respect but it was. It was so much so much fun to watch because the Knicks Pacers series. It seemed every possession mattered. You know possession two minutes into the game that's a that's a big play that you felt on some big call whether it was a foul call on a key player whether it was a three point. Play of a certain player that you knew needed to get going early. It just seemed like every possession matters so much and the other time avic too and it's tell him all the time I hated Mark Jackson. During that stretch hated him he was he was such an instigator. He Got Reggie Miller going. You Got John starks. Go and he got guys going on his own team. He got guys going on owning team. He was a he. Played the villain. Nick Billon as well as anybody displayed Dr that stretch And that's one of the memories. I have for that but it was. Also it was heartbreaking because you know once he once he missed that finger all Again era just out of the building right and then And obviously with with the whole Riley News after that it was it was like the end of a very special era. That didn't last very long. And that's the hard thing about it. It should have lasted longer and people people knew obviously there. Riley was a flight risk during that game after that game during that series. It was like there. The it was in the air that Riley could be gone. The Reggie game it'd be registered three hundred out of bounds. Play steals the ball thousand. Greg Anthony Probably Files Greg Anthony to steal knocks him over and steals. The ball hits another one. Oh wait wait wait wait wait. Let's let's go back. You use the word probably now. You're talking about Jordan. Not Part of the block and now you say probably a valid Reagan and then does the. I'm innocent hand gesture in the middle of the game ship right there and then steals. The amounts pass hits another three and from there. It's a straight comedy of errors. The whole rest of the game is a straight comedy of errors. Pacers fouled starks stupidly with fourteen seconds. Left in the Game Starts Mrs. Both free throws in a tie. Game Ewing rebounds the second one and instead of holding for the last shot and I can't really blame them for this because it's instinctual it's decent look puts up a little eight foot mini jumper. Which Mrs and then they foul Reggie Miller. On the rebound. He was like a ninety percent. Free throw shooter. He hits both of them. Knicks call timeout and their last play. Greg Anthony Falls over in the clock runs out. That is like those last thirteen seconds after. Reggie second three like every it's like keystone cops the game. Six the heat spurs which we talked about earlier you know five or six things had to happen for the heat to win that game and the final thirty seconds when that was going on after the game one of the things I thought about it. It was reminiscent of that. Reggie Miller game because as you said it had to be about four or five things to happen. That never happen. That never would have happened but all happen. And that's what caused it was. It was unbelievable. Now I remember I was doing the game on radio and I remember saying on the air People were leaving the garden. Some of the people were were walking out before the game ended. And I remember saying to Clyde on the thinking the Knicks. One where where are the right? Where are these people going? Don't they know Reggie Miller is in the building and then you know never thinking that was going to happen. And then he comes in. He does something like that and that cemented his places as perhaps the all time Nikola. What is your favorite Clyde Frazier saying or word or I think? My favorite is still When he calls a rookie of precocious neophyte. Neil fight is my favorite to Neil's lights. My favorite I love new play. It's perfect but precocious neophyte. And you know what people some don't know where this all of the big words started. When he was first starting to radio a lot he'd go speak to kids at schools and the kids would ask him about some of the words that he used and he would tell them the definition and he set himself. You know what ladder these kids are listening to the game on the radio. This is back before you know everybody had cable. Tv and they couldn't watch so he thought okay. Some of these kids are asking them about certain words. I'M GONNA start expanding my vocabulary on the air to teach them words and help them that. So it's a very noble reason why he started it and then it just became something he loved doing and it became part of of who he wasn't an answer. But that was the Arjun for it was to help. Young kids who young Knick fans Perhaps increase their vocabulary. I like when a rookie. Like to. Your point about precocious neophyte. When a rookie does something that surprises him and the neophyte sounds a little bit different. Like oh neophyte. Try to have you ever been in a Walt Frazier's closet and or closets and or whatever. His clothes are sort of ever seen them all lined up together. No unfortunately I have not had the honor. I've we've done a couple of specials on it over the years and it is a sight to see on TV. I would imagine it's it's it's even better in person when I find when he talks about what he does. He goes To Rug stores and designs on rugs or what he looks at and says you know what that design would be perfect and he uses those for patterns on his suits. Nobody's making suits like that. That's how that's how he gets his idea. One of my favorite things. You know every year the new nick players when they're on a layup line they're always like pointing and looking over but every night that he's got one of those suits on. The opposing team is distracted on their layup. Line to see what he's wearing. It's it's truly incredible. It's not carrying over into games and getting the Knicks any ws but I'm glad to know it helps in in in the layup line. What what is your favorite. What is your single favorite memory of Lin Sanity I think the Toronto game now. I've I've been blessed to be able to call a lot of big games historic games games. That mattered so much more. But those couple of weeks of Lin Sanity was the most fun I've ever had as as a broadcaster You could not wait to get to the arena every single night because you wanted to see. Could this kid do it again? You know after that first game against the nets it was like wow that was so much fun and then you're like okay. We'll see and then he does it again against Utah couple nights later and then it was like wow all can can. Can he do it again? Can he do it again? It was just you know you'd be. It'd be ten o'clock in the morning and be either in your hotel or home depending on a road home game and you're like I want to go to the gym now. I WanNa go to the arena now but the Toronto game because I don't think I've ever heard of visiting player. It such an ovation announced to the starting lineup. Is Jeremy Lin? Did that night in Toronto. The roar when he was announced as a starter for the opponent was allowed. I've ever heard Kobe's had a few of those when I've seen him on the road at the end of the season where he's playing against the team that may have been out of it and Laker fans everywhere but Germany. Lynn was the loudest and then when the opposing player hits what turns to be the game winning shot the loud cheer and there weren't a lot of Knick fans it was mostly raptor fans the cheer for for an opposing player hitting winning shot against their team was also the loudest I've ever heard. Is there a call in your long career that you listened to again? It said boy. I'd like to have a second crack at that Well I I think a lot of play by play is we'll tell you the same thing. There's a lot of them you would do differently or you wish was a little different I probably have two one from a long time ago in one more recently guy tell you go? That's two thousand Olympics in Australia. United States is playing. Lithuania and Lithuania was really good. And it's a close game and Lithuania is down by two and I remember Sue Play a little bit with the patient. He was a great international player in the final seconds. He takes a three pointer. It's kind of like the starch. Think he takes a three pointer that if it goes in they beat the USA and they're out no gold medal and it would have been the first time that they lost an Olympic competition you know since the NBA players. Start and as the shot goes up it one of those rattles in like a look. It's going to go in and then it comes out and Mike Cole was. I thought it was going in. So I'm about to say Oh. Skirt Lithuania wins. But when it rattles out I said Oh no and it came out like I was disappointed though and it bothered me and it was just a reaction from almost when it came out and really bothers you know the game was on. It was being taped wasn't on live and I remember going to the NBC bosses. Dick Ebersol and Tommy. Roy and I told them listen. We might have a problem. I really think I blew the call at the end because it it did sound like I was disappointed and we looked at the tape and they said Nope we want we. Can you know if you want baby? We can do something about it. And I'm like no no no no I can't. That's my call. That's my. That's the way I call it. I don't WanNa Change. I wanted on. I wanted on that way. And so when on that way and it was you know worked out fine and then pumped up at the United States one but the initial call to this day still bothers me that it came out like. Oh no the one I always think about. And you'll get your second one in the second. That would scare me if I were in a play by play. Announcer is the shot that is short but grazes the net and kind of looks like a Swish from the R- like if you see it from the wrong angle. It looks like and you can see fans get fooled by it because there was like a segment of fans that cheer. That went whenever I see a shot like that like boy. I feel bad for the broadcasts scores because I can see them falsely reacting to a make if you're above if you're Like the radio boots now is is high above. That can happen easily. If you're on court level it usually usually it's that'd be very difficult to have happened from that level to see it. What's the second one? The second one was in twenty sixteen in game seven get Kyrie irving hits that.

"For one of the only times actually. I don't know how often this happens. But if you look at if you watch clips marquee over. Msg is not about the Knicks. It's about Michael. Coming back to Broadway about a ball's coming back to Broadway and the celebrities in the in the at MSG that game is just an absolute murderers row like everybody was at that game. So what are your Flash Bulb? Obviously everyone remembers the fifty five to pass a wedding thin for the dunk at the end of the game. I don't know what you remember about the atmosphere about about watching him play that night. I Wa. I remember prior to game Everybody was there so early. The place was packed early. And that's not normally the case During the week and as you said it was loaded with celebrities but when he first came out It just it's hard to describe the sound of the building when he first came out because there was this like it was this gas. Okay there he is because he played in the four or five games and he hadn't played particularly well on some games. He had decent amount of points but he wasn't shooting the ball. Well he was a little sloppy a little inefficient which you would expect so you didn't really know what to expect but he always rose to the occasion when he came to the garden but it was the pre-game feeling in the building and when he first came out it's like it was knick fans they wanted to clap and certainly some of them did because they were so excited to see this great player. We get the opportunity. We get the privilege of watching this great player play again. Even knick fans had to feel that way and I I know I did yes. We have a better chance of beating without him. But but the fact that You can see this greatness again in person so there was like. I think half the people feel. Are we WANNA CLAP? We want to give them a standing ovation. Cours glad were back. But they're saying well. We can't clap for this guy. This guy is crushed and broken our hearts so many times. How can we do that so they were torn but you can almost see it? And maybe it's it's me Thinking differently because I know what happened but I remember watching him in the warm ups and there was this. This focused as Way was perspiring so much in the warm ups that you knew he wanted this to be the special light to the breakout night and right from the opening tip he just he had it. He didn't have that that same flow and rhythm in the previous games in the comeback. He had it right from the opening chip that night. He scored twenty something in the first quarter. I think so. You know right away okay. I'm watching something that might be special Which which has to be an amazing feeling that you get you know maybe five times a season or something like that and this is even on a different level. Because it's Michael Jordan. It's the baseball soldier. And it's over now. Do you remember feeling that in when you feel that? Do you put extra pressure on yourself as a broadcaster like I'm GonNa have to mark something historic here and I want to get it right. The first thing you think of at least for me is You you constantly tell yourself I come down. Let's don't don't lose it. Don't get crazy 'cause you know you're adrenaline is flowing. You get hyped up so the first thing you ten. Let's not go crazy. Let's not go screaming when he hits the second basket. Oh It's six to nothing you know. You can't go early. You got it. It's the crescendo from broadcasters so I remember and games like that where you just say I let's call a game settled down settled down and save everything for the big crescendo for the big finish at the end. And then you know I. I'm not one that likes to try and think ahead of time of what to say. I I like to think of okay. How am I gonNA frame this I've got great advice early. In my career that said don't wait 'til the buzzer sounds to kind to try and put it into words. What that game meant the big picture of that game? Start leading into that. Start talking about it with like five or four minutes to go so usually with about five minutes ago. I think okay the little preview. This could be one of the great performances at you. Know things like that where you lead into it before you get to. That final authoritative. Wrap up of it and it's advice that has stayed with me That I think is good because you want to give people of what to look for. Are they really seeing something special So that's the way I approach that But I do remember on a night like that where you have to tell you so. Okay easy does it. Let's not get carried away. Just keep calling the game with the energy and enthusiasm the appropriate way and then at the big moment happens. That's when you you raise it up. I was reading a couple stories about you. I don't remember who told you this or or were you got the line but I think you were quoted in one of them is saying someone told you or you tell yourself. Don't say great when you mean good like don't don't use up your greats like you got a savior adjective great for when it's really really great and like that's that's sort of what you're telling yourself calm down from like maybe he shoots five of thirty for the rest of the game. And it's not a remarkable game rebecca. That's a very 'cause you I think are less as more broadcaster and a lot of ways you don't overdo it you don't over talk over. Insert your personality. I think to the point that people would maybe like like five percent more of Mike Breen personality. Although the guys are calling games with our bringing personality for for days but I I I like that line. Don't say great when you've been good you you have to save but when it truly is great and I learned that from Marv Albert because Marvin the way he described to play and the way his voice once. If you weren't watching say you were doing something while the game saw and you heard his voice go up you turn because you know okay. This is a special play when he when he said that. This one is spectacular. Play by Michael Jordan. Now he may have used patacula more than I can remember but he didn't use it a lot and that's what made that call so special because that was spectacular. He's calling you know place three times a game spectacular then. It doesn't mean as much but that call was one of the great calls in the history of of NBA play by play because He didn't use superlatives and less play. Deserved that superlative. I also think Smith stuffed Smith stuff to Smith stuff. Smith Stop I wonder if halfway through that he and his headed click like this is all I should say because the repetition of it and the alliteration of it. It's a really great call. And he kind of rises up as it goes on but it just just to say the same thing over and over again into in the moment how ridiculous it was at the same thing just happened four times right. It's a really. It's a simple but great call. I think it is so he's the greatest basketball play-by-play Voice of all time has always been and will always be. He's the standard we all looked to get to and from me growing up as a knick fan and listening to him night after. I just you get lessons like that. And he knew in a big moment he called the big moment as well as anybody who's ever done this in any sport.

I don't wiped off so I must just do it inside the house. Well I I was thinking to you. Oh yesterday we were at Ecuador and I walk into the racing office in the first person I see is is our man Ron Anderson and it just made me laugh because everybody's wearing quilted vast and and you know they're they're barn coats and everybody's bundled up for the early winter here in the northeast and less than a week earlier. We were all basking in the okay. Okay and the southern California sunlight work basking in any sunlight about six o'clock in the morning at Santa Anita. I think it was I am. I think it was probably in the high thirties. Maybe the woke forty in the morning out there and you're in that grandstand which doesn't doesn't really get the Sun until about ten o'clock in the morning things don't start to thaw out. It was cool. It really was in the morning out affair Shannon Nieta But of course by eleven o'clock big you're so The scene the way. The scene shifted from a from the West Coast to the east. Maybe it just it kind of mused mused me I saw so many people that had been out there and now they're all you know they they they look all lumpy and frumpy and yeah. It's funny. It's funny because I think it was last last night. Maybe we went out to dinner and we're getting ready to leave and I said where's my coat you know like it's Vinnie. Monster said that and it's like all of a sudden it's like you don't even you don't even start to. Its like he don't want winter to come or you don't think it's coming and then it's here. You know like he ever say well. I better reply my code because I'm GonNa need it it just like where's my coach. We need it and the time has come It seems based on based on on this on this trip to New York. I and it's always Ecuador Belmont to frankly I mean Belmont. It's always called the Belmont just the way it faces is and you know it's amazing how it could be so much different from the backyard to the the frontside really even even during the summer. It's it seems that sometimes but acqueduct. You're you're right off the bay and and so you know invariably if it if the sun's is not out it it it feels. It feels chilly but it was really fun to be there. They've done some nice things. Actually they created a new Horsemen an owner's lounge that on the second floor they took a section and Kinda sealed it off and they're actually going to push it even a little bit further other into some of the box seats and they never had that and It seems like a really good use of space and a lot of horsemen and owners. Where we're hanging out there there? I went there to watch the v C some of our partners and I know everybody not everybody. Some people seem to just not understand understand what what Akwa dot is in the in the ecosystem of racing and not just in New York. It's a it's an urban racetrack. It it is not the long island racetrack. It's not the country repast role racetrack it. It's a city facility. That is you know it's is it spartan. Yeah it is has about it to me. It's got a certain appeal. That is just you know. You're at acqueduct. They instantly. And it's just it's just a little a little rougher around the edges but I I love going there I'll give you a slice of racing trivia. You don't know I have never been to Ecuador in my real won a ah now you ask. Why why? How is that possible? How even possible? You're how is that your whole life. You've never been the academic now living back East you you grew up back east. Now you've been back about fifteen years twelve years whatever it's been and you've never been to act so keep trying to figure out how that's possible. The only thing the only thing I could figure out is that when I was young really young teenager I pretty much hit the local stuff that I did quickly obviously The Liberty Bell Philadelphia Parks Keystone Atlantic City. the local stuff and then As I got older and I left to go to college in California. I think I'm back for thirty years so actually when I when I did come back in in the summers from college I hit dome. The Belmont in the summer But again aqueduct wasn't open when I come home we summers so you're talking thirty years stretch and now I've been back. I think I haven't been acqueduct because it just falls in a timeframe where I'm hunker down for the winter like I don't leave my house from December I I look I have to. I do make a few trips out but December first until like you know April my house I was forced so you know it just never happened and I've gotta fix that I've got to rectify that situation where I don't know but I've got to take care of that now. There's there's plenty you know coming up this coming up. Even this you've got you've got opportunity with the.
What's the Science Behind Applause?
"The TV plus different. They have the ability to Jason. He plotted to start watching now. Subscription required hurt them to bring stuff production of iheartradio brain stuff. Lauren Bogle bomb here audiences around the world break out in applause at the conclusion of a stage. Play or a musical concert or when they're favored presidential candidates. Step to the podium. Humans have been applauding and approval approval. Since ancient times the customers mentioned in the Old Testament which depicts the Israelites. Clapping their hands and shouting God. Save the king for a young heir to the throne. But how does a group of people start applauding and what determines how many other people join and how long the accolades last. Those aren't easy questions to answer sir. Applause isn't a subject. Researchers have studied extensively and there seemed to be only a handful pardon the pun of studies in the scientific literature as is a paper from two thousand and three explains one theory. Is that audience. Applause is triggered by a few individuals who have a lower threshold of embarrassment than the rest of the crowd. These brave enthusiasts clapping lowers. The embarrassment cost for others but whether they actually join in the researchers concluded had to do with whether the performance instead witnessed crossed a threshold for impressiveness. That is whether the massive people was sufficiently pleased by what they'd seen heard. They found the People's liking for performance correlated to how long the audience kept clapping as the effort of clapping began to exceed their enthusiasm. Some individuals stopped clapping. Raising the embarrassment embarrassment cost for the remainder and giving them an incentive to stop the researchers also found that large audiences tended to applaud more predictably than smaller groups loops. We spoke by email with paper. Co Author Gary Lukin and associate professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin Madison. He said imagine that five percent of people applauded everything. A smaller audience has a larger probability of not having any such person that would be a tough crowd as an audience grows larger. The probability converges to five percent in other words to larger audiences are more likely to behave more similarly to one another than to small audiences for the same reason that if you flip a coin one hundred times you're more likely to get closer to half heads and tails and if you flip a coin. Ten Times more recently a study published in two thousand thirteen in the Journal of the Royal Society Details University of Leeds Mathematician Richard Pieman colleagues filmed groups of between thirteen to twenty college. Students watching or presentations. They found that there was relatively little connection between how much people liked what they saw. And the duration of their ovation instead they discovered that applause was a sort of social contagion that started with a single person in the audience who typically begin clapping about two point one seconds after after the speaker finished the clothing din spread rapidly through the groups over the next two point nine three seconds at five point five six seconds the I applaud typically stopped and by two point six seconds later on average. The rest of the audience was no longer putting their hands together as well. The researchers also came to another surprising conclusion. It wasn't physical proximity to another person. Clapping that triggered applause. Instead as man explained a National Public Radio interview it was the loudness. Nisa the applause. The got audience members join in. He said as soon as people can hear that other people in the audience are clapping. They begin to clap themselves so often. When you are feeling social pressure from audience members you couldn't directly see as you've probably noticed long ovation's tend to vary in the speed of clapping and go up and down down in loudness and at times. The audience may seem to be clapping in unison. In a study published in the journal Nature in the year two thousand Romanian researchers recorded applause from theater and opera performances by placing a microphone on the ceiling of the hall. They discovered the people who are plotting often started out clapping rapidly and chaotically but after a few seconds their class began to slow and synchronize into a distinctive rhythm which added to the intensity of the noise the urge to synchronize the claps they noted had seemed quote to reflect the desire of the audience to express Buddhism by increasing the average noise intensity paradoxically though ask people strive to make an even louder ovation to show their enthusiasm. They begin to clap more rapidly. That tends to disperse their clapping and destroy the cumulative synchronization. It's only when they slow their collapse. The applause becomes thunderous again.

It's also attached to the podium from which the US President gives speeches and appears on official White House stationary and invitations a railroad locomotive painted to honor president didn't George H W Bush is decorated with it. It's the seal of the president of the United States of America the presidential seal look similar with slight differences to the great seal of the United States the official symbol. That's impressed upon official documents such as treaties and commissions the precise design of the presidential seal was detailed an executive order ninety-six forty-six issued in October of Nineteen forty-five by President Harry S Truman. It's specified that the seal depict an American Eagle that's holding ending an olive branch in its right Talon and a bundle of thirteen arrows to symbolize the original thirteen states and it's left while clutching in it's big a white scroll inscribed with the motto Eh Pluribus Unum Latin for out of many one behind and above the Eagle.

US presidents decided that like the British monarch. They needed their own personal coat of arms as well. We spoke by email with Matthew Castello senior historian for the White House Historical Association. He said that the great seal quote was the official symbol of the United States federal government not the office of the Presidency Eh as such some president simply used the great seal while others thought that the president should have their own distinct seal. Castilla explains at least several throw presidents in the eighteen hundreds created their own seals incorporating. Whatever flourishes appeal to them James K polk for example used his own seal on the proclamation of war against against Mexico in eighteen forty six Millard fillmore came up with his own slightly different version which he sent to Maryland Postmaster engraver Edward Stabler to make in eighteen fifty Lincoln used a personalized seal as well. A presidential seal didn't actually appear on an invitation to an event until eighteen seventy seven Kevin according to Authors Patterson and Dougal President Rutherford B Hayes who was hosting a dinner honoring Russian Grand Duke Alexis Alexandrovich made the invites look fancier zero by placing them with a seal that featured an arc of clouds raise and stars between the Eagles wingtips but the Haze Eagle was thinner in scrawny than today's robust looking eagle and its head turned toward the bundle of arrows rather than toward the olive branch in Nineteen to President Theodore Roosevelt ordered yet another other presidential seal to be installed on the floor of the White House entrance hall. He commissioned a french-american Sculptor Philip Martigny to create a new one Martigny drew on the Hayes design fine but added a few changes including engraving the phrase the seal of the President of the United States in that circular border Truman who didn't like Martin. He's work had removed emplaced elsewhere in the White House during World War Two President Franklin Roosevelt who was fascinated with insignia asked experts to redesign the presidential seal they came up with the idea of adding ring of stars to represent. All the states and having Eagle Face the olive branches rather than the Arrows to emphasize the desire for peace rather rather than war that design was the one that Truman approved in nineteen forty five and it's been used ever since in nineteen fifty nine and nineteen sixty President Dwight Eisenhower and how updated it by adding stars for Alaska and Hawaii.

How would you like to live five times longer than a mammal. Your size has any right to expect sounds great right but wait. Would you still be interested. If it meant you had to live out your days looking like a tiny alien dressed in an old sock made from the skin of somebody's hard living grandpa. Take a minute to think it over naked mole rats. That's a taxonomic name. Heterosexuals gleyber have made their evolutionary choice in this regard. This cold blooded rodent is incredibly long-lived. They routinely lived the ripe age age of thirty five compare that to porcupines in guinea pigs close relatives which usually live no longer than age eight naked mole rats very rarely get cancer are nearly incapable full of feeling pain and when the oxygen runs out in their underground tunnels they basically start acting like plants their bodies automatically switched from using oxygen process glucose into energy in their cells to processing reserve stores fructose into energy like a plant would no oxygen necessary and in a study published in two thousand eighteen based on analysis assist the life histories of thousands of naked mole rats researchers found that while the rodents not only live incredibly long lives they also don't really age seriously their risk risk of dying just doesn't really seem to increase as they get older and female fertility doesn't seem to decline with age either the term for this is negligible citizens and and lobsters and galapagos tortoises are two other examples of animals with these qualities study author rochelle buffet stein a comparative biologist who works for the longevity seventy focused california biotech company calico has studied naked mole rats for more than three decades and has recorded the life history of each of the three thousand three hundred and twenty nine animals that have passed through her lab in that time what she's found is it naked mole rats are a huge exceptions the slightly unsettling gum pertz law of mortality which was developed in in eighteen twenty five by british mathematician insurance actuary benjamin bomb parts to assign a mathematical formula to the phenomenon of ageing actuaries calculate. The financial risk ask insurance company assumes by ensuring a given person for humans. The gun parts law states that after the age of thirty the likelihood that we're going to died doubles every eight years. Some variation of this law applies to basically every other mammal we know about with the exception of buffon's stein's lab reared mole wraps. It's a once buffet teens. Good mole rats reach sexual maturity at about six months of age. She found the likelihood that they would croak reached around one in ten thousand where where it hovered for the rest of their lives since only a few of buffon's deans naked mole rats were not killed him experiments or moved to other labs. We don't actually know how or if the naked mole rats strong longevity game eventually hits a wall. The oldest individual in the study is currently thirty five years old so who knows aging could happened really quickly for these little superheroes after a certain point in time but for the rest of the over thirty mammal crowd out there trying to have just okay day to day in spite of the fact that the likelihood of your death is roughly doubling by the decade.

An a welcome to brain stuff but production of iheartradio brain Steph Lorraine Vogel bomb here and I'm here today to tell you that an oddball catfish species I spotted in one thousand nine hundred eight in Brazil at last has a name and it is Grio. Yes as in the Rhodesian Bounty Hunter Star Wars more formerly the catfish at fish who's bug-eyed stare and Droopy Chin like extension really do bring to mind Guido will henceforth be known as Peck Alenia greeted by that final is sound in Latin is a possessive so it means something like grotto's fish one Dr Jonathan armbruster professor professor and curator officials at Auburn University and Longtime Star Wars Fan created the name while studying the fish in two thousand fifteen. It's about one of forty species of fish. He's named date by tradition. Whoever discovers a new species gets to name it discovers covers doesn't necessarily mean fines though armbruster explained discoveries a weird term? I discovered Pedo I in a jar but others actually discovered it in nature. They just didn't have everything they needed to describe it. Armbruster did describe it he. He discovered the nature of the species. The new part of new species is weird to in this context armbruster explains a new species is one that is newly described named of course it existed before scientists got involved describing describing a new species is a science in itself in taxonomy which is the scientific discipline of classifying living things scientists examined physical genetic behavioral. 'em ecological traits to logically scituate species within the biosphere taxonomy is a big deal it reveals how a new species fits into are known world and provides a universal language to describe study it taxonomy lays out the components of biodiversity and thus the tools to preserve it it offers scientists engineers and inventors their best chance at understanding were standing the incredible capabilities that the natural world and explaining it to the rest of US naming is part of taxonomy. A name often reflects a distinctive characteristic like the name Tattoo Rita Brazilian ncis for bat discovered that lives in Brazil. Oh there's a lot of leeway in naming though and scientists often get creative like p Guido I for a fish that looks like Guido or my oldest might attack this for a bat with golden for after mythologies golden touched King Midas. This approach can sometimes be problematic though we spoke with Dr Ricardo More telly biologist with the Waldo crews foundation who named the Golden Bat he explained a characteristic that we I think is you need to that species. Maybe revealed as shared with others or even variable. Able within the species for instance the aforementioned t Brazilian says was later found to live throughout north and South America resulting in sub-species like T- Brazilian says Mexicana or the Mexican Brazilian F- Retail Bat other names <music> honor colleagues immortalized family members or less common but more compelling exact revenge scientists Carlin is who in these seventeen hundreds founded the taxonomy and nomenclature systems still used in biology today named an entire genus of Rican weeds <music> secust Becca after one Johan seek us back a botanist who had endlessly criticized his work. The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature needs to approve names but the organization is Pretty Open minded it approved sid vicious aside and Johnny Rotten. I four two species extinct trial bite named by taxonomic whose friend loved the sex pistols it also gave the nod to Agatha Idiom Bush. I A Cheney I and a Rumsfeld I four three species beetle title. The Republican taxonomic actually entered is a good thing it also approved ampule X. Demento for wasp that turns cockroaches zombies before eating them the behavior apparently recalled Harry Potter's spirit sucking adversaries that last one was chosen in a vote by visitors to Berlin Museum of Natural History. Some scientists are giving away. They're naming rights to educate engage and fund research and Conservation Merlin's museum patrons learned about the new wasp and taxonomy and it's critical role in conservation. Asian as part of the voting the scripts institution for oceanography cells naming rights for five thousand two twenty five thousand per species with the proceeds porting institutions work and that's a bargain at a two thousand five auction the online Golden Palace Casino L. paid sixty five thousand dollars the rights to name a species of monkey supporting the National Park in Bolivia where the new monkey was discovered. This commercialization makes some in the field uncomfortable with money in the mix. There's concern about biased. taxonomy armbruster said it has the possibility of getting out of hand. Buying a name is a good thing as long as it is four species we have already identified as new. We need more money for taxonomy. Finding creative ways to fund the science is a good thing by the way a Golden Palace named the Monkey Cassius our pilot.

NASA has announced that it will launch a space probe called dragonfly on an ambitious mission to Saturn's Saturn's Moon Titan in which a robotic rotorcraft lander will fly around Titan's surface and touchdown in various places as part of its exploratory mission the dragonfly space probe will look for traces of chemical processes similar to the ones that led to life on earth in addition to gathering other information about the Moon's surface and atmosphere dragonfly will launch twenty twenty six and arrive at Titan which is eight hundred eighty six million miles. That's one point four billion kilometers from the Sun in Twenty thirty four once they're. The space probe which is about the size of the Space Agency's spirit and Opportunity Mars Rovers will turn on eight rotors and fly through Titan's dense hazy atmosphere which is about four times the density of Earth's and explore. It's still mysterious surface. A Titan is the biggest of Saturn's sixty two moons and a close second in moon size at our solar system after Jupiter's Moon Ganymede has radius of about sixteen hundred miles or twenty five hundred kilometers making it about fifty percent wider than Earth's moon but it's not just titan size is it is made it a longtime object to fascination scientists Titan is also the only moon in the solar system with much of an atmosphere and it's the only slot in the solar system besides earth that's known to have Liquid Rivers Lakes and seas on its surface though the latter are made up of liquid hydrocarbons such as methane and ethane titans also believed to have an underground ocean of water deep beneath its icy surface that could possibly have harboured some form of life or may still contain it. The titans surface is brutally cold like. Minus two hundred ninety degrees Fahrenheit or one hundred and seventy degrees Celsius cold but conditions potential underground ocean are unknown titans thick atmosphere is about ninety five percent nitrogen with the rest mostly composed of methane the creates a thick orange colored haze hangs over the moon's surface making it difficult to observe from Earth much of what we do know comes from the European Space Agency's how Hon spacecraft which landed on Titan and transmitted data for seventy two minutes in two thousand five and from NASA's Cassini probe which did multiple fly bys of Titan between two thousand five in two thousand seventeen. How huns was actually attached to Cassini for these seven year trip to Titans vicinity scientists are particularly excited about dragonflies ability to fly rather than crawl crawl along the ground unlike Mars where NASA also plans to test a small robotic helicopter with large high speed blades twenty twenty titans atmosphere's thick enough to enable dragonfly to attain lift with relatively small Reuters and carry a bigger payload over longer distances? Mrs Than the experimental copter being sent to Mars. It's expected to cover more than one hundred miles or one hundred seventy five kilometers during its nearly three year mission on Titan it will fly in short hops up to five minutes at a time we spoke by email with Jason some sort of bomb a research scientist in the Department of Earth Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one of dragonflies co investigators he explained flight allows us to move the lander much greater distances in a short period of time than a traditional rover allowing us to more efficiently explore Titan. We also spoke by email with Kurt Neiber new frontiers program scientist for NASA. He said the dragonflies design is fundamentally different from the Mars helicopter quote not just because the atmosphere of Titan on Mars are so different but because they are different vehicles the Mars helicopter is a short lived technology demonstration with no science payload dragonfly is a self contained space craft designed to pursue science mission with high autonomy. It's like comparing a self driving car in electric. Electric Scooter both have wheels but they have very different purposes and therefore very different designs. The researchers working on dragonfly are excited about the opportunity to investigate the giant moons many mysteries Neiber said I'm looking forward to dragonfly finally giving US detailed answers about the surface of Titan at the small scale not just its composition but also its geology telling us about the complex organic materials present there and how they interact and also giving us a good look at surface features like dunes and the cell Crater Cassini he did a good job at giving us broad answers to this question at the large scale tens of miles for example but nothing beats getting down to the surface and actually digging your hands and feet in so to speak solder Baum also spoke to this. He said there's a plethora of unanswered answered questions about Titan's surface. One fundamental question we have yet to answer is what is the composition of titans major geologic units or if the water ice bedrock is exposed anywhere on Titan or if it's been buried beneath organic gunk this is because Titan's atmosphere obscures. Surface at most wavelengths limiting our ability to use traditional remote sensing techniques to study the surface composition dragonflies scrutiny of Titan's surface may also yield insights about the moon's atmosphere and the chemistry going on there which could in turn wind up helping us understand more about ourselves. We also spoke with Sarah Horst an assistant professor in the School of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. WHO's also an investigator on the project? She said that chemistry and the atmosphere's interact with the surface quote is important for understanding the role that atmospheres play in the origin or evolution of life and also help us figure out what types molecules may constitute evidence for life when we're looking at observations faraway atmosphere's like those of exoplanets.

Does the Military Teach a Sleep Meditation Technique?

Hey brain stuff lauren Boban here getting good sleep is important for everyone. It's essential for optimal cognitive performance physiological Michael Processes emotional regulation and quality of life but the National Sleep Foundation founded. It's two thousand eighteen annual sleep index study that just ten percent of American adults prioritize sleep over other things in their daily lives such as fitness nutrition work social life and hobbies. Lobbies and personal interests in the study just thirty five percent of those surveyed describe their sleep. Quality is good while twenty two percent said it was fair and twelve percent rated their sleep quality as poor. Most adults should get between seven and nine hours of sleep per night and the effects of sleep deprivation when you don't get enough sleep can be serious so what's one to do when they either can't fall asleep or simply. Don't get good quality of sleep when they do a pop culture legend of sorts suggests that the military might have the answer the members of the armed forces do have to sleep in dangerous and stressful environments all the time and the consequences of Parsley for soldiers on missions can be catastrophic soldiers on deployment often have unpredictable schedules that conflict with their natural circadian rhythms and they have small sleep quarters that double is personal and leisure space. That's why soldiers reportedly use a meditation technique that helps them or anyone fall into restful sleep in two minutes according to a November two thousand fifteen report from the U._S.. Army a metric called. The performance triad is used to assess and improve soldiers readiness in the areas of physical activity nutrition and sleep. The report revealed that almost one third of soldiers get less than five hours of sleep per night one out of every twenty active duty soldiers takes prescription sleep medication and sleep deprivation can increase the risk of soldiers developing post traumatic stress disorder the report includes the performance triad course offered to soldiers provides technical sleep techniques to help them get as much rest as possible while on deployment it also suggests soldiers aim to get eight hours of sleep in a twenty four hour period and avoid caffeine six hours before bedtime includes advice on how to use caffeine or energy drinks to improve performance while minimizing their impact on sleep. Although this report demonstrates the army's understanding of the importance of sleep it includes no mention of Meditation Asleep Tool. So where did this oft-cited technique come from the technique was developed in the U._S.. Navy pre flight school. It appears to have entered entered popular culture by way of Nineteen eighty-one self-help book. That's now out of print called relax and win championship performance. The author Lloyd Bud Winter was by then a well known track and field coach. The book is actually based on research that winter conducted as as a naval ensign after World War Two years before the book's publication winters technique was tested on two groups and winters navy pre flight academy to teach naval aviators how to properly relax and fall asleep faster the test group outperformed the control group in numerous. I tests and drills and after six weeks ninety six percent of the group could fall asleep practically on command so while the technique has seen a resurgence lately thanks to some mentions in the press. It's definitely not new but it is courtesy of the military. Winter described the process of this book to physically relaxed quickly in short his technique leads you through full body relaxation and then helps you clear your mind you start by slowly relaxing the muscles in your face including your tongue and lips then moved onto your shoulders arms and torso let each muscle go limp and breathe slowly as you concentrate on relaxing focus on your chest while you take deep breaths and exhale releasing your tension with your breaths once your upper body muscles feel relaxed move down to your thighs calves and feet consider them dead weight finally take three deep breaths and when you let them out blow out all of your remaining tension the process should take about a minute and a half it takes practice to relax your body on command so the trick is to I tense up each area. Area and then relax it clear your mind by concentrating on a calming mental image in theory. You should fall asleep pretty quickly based on recent military publications. It's unclear if this technique is still taught or widely used but if you haven't insomnia or just aren't getting a good night's rest. There's certainly no harm in trying it.

An a welcome to brainstorm production of iheartradio Hey rain stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here eleven point eight percent of American households. That's about forty million people experienced food insecurity which is the lack of financial resources to buy sufficient food at least some of the time in two thousand seventeen according to the United States Department of Agriculture one way of fighting. This could be community food forests food forests are far cry from community gardens as they're not rows and rows of standard plant beds instead they're designed to mimic natural forests using food bearing trees roots Greens vines and other the plants while making the most of the space available as a result food forests are picturesque and calming gathering areas for community members looking to enjoy a piece of nature while picking whatever produce they need for free. We spoke with Giuseppe Tele Rico an agronomist. Specializing in permaculture food security and environmental management systems who is also the founder and manager of the world permaculture association. He said the concept behind food forests is that natural forests are highly productive in their own right and totally self-sustainable renewable over extremely long timeframes so by following the functional patterns that exist in the natural forest and adapting them to the conditions of light and space that each species need in order to be productive. We can create very low maintenance production zones that are essentially harvest systems by mimicking natural patterns in nature as much as possible. The hope is that every species needs humans animals and plants will be met in a sustainable way. Although there's some wiggle room for layout based on the local environment a typical food enforced is designed with the canopy of large nut and fruit trees followed by a lower tree layer of dwarf fruit trees nixed is a shrub layer composed of shrubs that produce berries followed by a layer of herbs and then by root crops such as potatoes and carrots the soil surface is planted with ground cover specific crops and finally layer vertical climbers vines like grapes or Kiwis is incorporated. Most of these spaces aren't even all that huge in fact when it opens Atlanta's urban food forest Brown's. Sounds mill will be the city's first in the largest in the U._S.. At seven point one acres that's about two point eight hector's even better food forests are often planned to make use of previously wasted space the Dr George Washington Carver at will park in Asheville North Carolina Carolina took over an area once occupied by a trash heap and the Glendale Community Garden in West Akron Ohio was created a vacant lot and all too common eyesore in cities across the country. It's not unusual for community churches schools and governments to who established food forests of whatever size they can manage with the help of civic organizations in volunteers but one food forest in a given city isn't going to totally eradicate the issue of hunger of course Atlanta urban food forest is one prong of a citywide effort to make healthy food accessible possible to eighty five percent of city residents by the year two thousand twenty two. We spoke by email with Mike Accord a forest ranger with trees Atlanta. He said the area is a U._S._D._A.. Classified Food Desert so benefiting the immediate neighborhood is the primary goal a group of neighbors manages the Community Garden and herb area while trees Atlanta and other partners manage the orchard and forced at sections of the land although food forces are free and open to the public they may ask visitors to only harvest food when forced managers are. Are Present to prevent people from accidentally damaging the plants or taking produce. That isn't ready yet. The movement is now gaining steam but food forced took awhile to get off the ground. The ASHVILLE food force was the first of its kind in the modern United States although Tele Rico. I'm not that human agroecology systems have been used for ages many communities such as those in Java Bali New Guinea and parts of central and South America a couple more popped up here and there after ashes launch nineteen ninety-seven but it wasn't until after Seattle's Beacon Hill food forest forest garnered much publicity in two thousand twelve these projects really started to gain traction as of two thousand eighteen there are more than seventy food forests established across the United States and thousands more around the world.

Elon Musk hopes to put a computer chip in your brain
"Buddy Elon Musk because it's always fun to talk about Elon Musk and this time the man wants to put a computer in your brain this past Tuesday Tuesday night at a presentation at the California Academy of Sciences Elon Musk announced the first initiative from his company called Neuro Link and guys. It's GonNa blow your minds got it okay. Here's what it it's it's a tiny computer chip that musk envisions will be stitched to our brains by a robot Adam Rogers our colleague at wired covered this for us and he has all the details. Adam writes that the chip is custom built to receive and process the electrical action potentials that signal activity in the neurons in your brain then the chip is connected to wires that embedded to your brain tissues received these spikes and a robotic sewing machine is what puts those wires there with quote unquote enviable precision. So what does this actually supposed to do. Basically it would turn your brains activity to machine readable code that a computer can understand and when you think about it there are lots of noble or helpful ways in which this could be used as Adam points out <hes> even if this does seem like the neural lace of science fiction nightmares it's like you could. I don't know something like this could help a blind person see or could help person control their prosthetic from their mind. The thing is though that this is going to inevitably take a while musk says he hopes to have this in a human patient by the end of next year. Lots of tests are going to happen. I other companies like facebook have been working on some kind of mine. Reading Technology Darpa has been funding brain computer interface research since the nineteen seventies <hes> now Adam does point out that the neural inc product revealed by musk does take this a seemingly different technical direction in some way but I think is if to say it might still be awhile before we see some effort like this come to fruition yeah and this estimation that he's going to have this in in human clinical trials within the next year seems completely bogus completely completely it was interesting to see at this event yuan announced that they had begun work in primates studies and the seemed to not just surprise the audience but in fact his team who seemed a bit like Whoa were. We supposed to talk about that <hes> because up until this point they've done some studies in rodents which you know any science reporter will tell you doesn't really show a lot about efficacy or safety <hes> so it seems like the timeline of the trials is very very off but what I find so interesting about neural link. Is that like many other <hes> Breen computer interface start ups Yulon's idea is that this isn't ultimately four people who are dealing with brain injuries right. He has his idea that originally it will be used for people who have paralysis or perhaps people who are quadriplegics just sort of connect parts of their brains that have become disconnected from the rest of their body but ultimately he sees this as a way to make us superhuman away way to tap into the brain as like a human A._p._i..

Welcome to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here with that age is old question. Do dogs go through puberty? Okay. Well, if it's not age is old. It's at least an interestingly, odd question, and an important one for dog owners, you might assume the answer is no because he probably don't ever, remember your labrador tow barking. I hate you. You've ruined my life. You never. Let me go to the dog park and then stomping off slamming the doggy door behind him. Although that's unlikely to happen for several reasons the answer, whether dogs and other animals go through puberty is, yes, dogs, for instance, go through hormonal changes that are similar to humans, however because they have significantly shorter lifespans the moody difficult period of adolescence happens when they are puppies, a typical puppy goes through puberty sometime between four and twenty months, the equivalent of a human's first eighteen years small breeds, develop faster than larger breeds, and like humans female dogs typically mature faster than males. They won't have acne or school dances to contend. With but like human adolescence dogs in puberty may exhibit some less than desirable behaviors, males tend to Mark and mount as well as Rome, which is the dog equivalent of sneaking out of the house to cruise for girls with the car full of friends female dogs, reach sexual maturity. Once they go into heat, they'll show physical signs, as it approaches such as excessive shedding and looking genitals. Male dogs are drawn to the female sent when they are in heat, so girl, pups should be kept indoors and have a secure physical barrier around them. When outdoors a female dog can become pregnant during her first heat just like they tell you in high school and due to an increased chance of health and behavioral problems veterinarians advise against Spain or breeding dog before that. In addition to sex-specific behavior pubescent, boy, and girl dogs share a variety of new personality traits and behaviors, which can include anxiety, insecurity, irritability jumpiness and increased independence including a reluctance to come when called they may also begin to act territorial and protective or even become picky. About playmates and fight with other dogs. Dog adolescence is also accompanied by an abundance of energy. Perhaps, unlike humans, I remember being distinctly difficult about getting out of bed in the morning in dogs, that energy can often lead to chewing, the wrong things pulling on leashes and digging, though. You can mitigate all of that by providing positive outlets such as playing running, and going on frequent, walks and outings. In addition to needing, healthy avenues, for extra energy during this period. Experts as important. The pets are mentally stimulated by playing exploring new places and learning new tricks, Doug should be routinely, socialized, because along with puberty can come sudden fear of people or things that haven't been issues in the past. This is a critical time when early adolescent puppies, develop emotionally gain confidence and decide who they trust sadly, the majority of shelter dogs arrived during adolescence because people don't realize their pet sudden, bad behavior is a developmental phase that will end.

Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Bogle bond here. An unsolved mystery can drive people crazy and the fate of the first English settlers ever to establish a colony in the new world ruin oak is a puzzle that will probably never be entirely solved. But it doesn't keep people from trying in July. Fifteen eighty seven a ship carrying ninety men. Seventeen women and eleven children landed on Roanoke island on the Outer Banks of modern day North Carolina a year before when these site was discovered. Fifteen men had volunteered to stay and hold down the proverbial fort, but they were nowhere to be found. So the one hundred and eighteen colonists disembarked and said about carbon colony out of the wilderness. There's much excitement when Eleanor dare the daughter of leader John White gave birth to the first English baby. Born in the new world and named her Virginia after time John White left, the settlers to return to England telling them he'd be back within the year with fresh supplies. However, England's war with Spain slowed the process considerably, and nobody was able to check on the settlement again. Until fifteen ninety when white returned his daughter granddaughter and everyone else was gone. They had dismantled the buildings carved the word Kroto in into a tree. The name of the friendly native American tribe on a nearby island and vanished. There was no sign of the cross white had told them to carve on a tree if they had left under duress. A frankly white didn't look very hard for his daughter and granddaughter before heading back to England for centuries. The story of the lost colony of Roanoke seemed pretty cut and dried to most historians. The settlers went to live with a Kroto and tribe. Whether they stayed there not nobody could say the thing they could say is that no definitive sign of any of the one hundred eighteen colonists was ever found despite rumors in the later established Jamestown colony of massacres and men wearing European clothes deep in the wilderness. No definitive sign that is until more than three centuries later when in nineteen thirty seven a produce dealer from California named L E Helmand showed up at Emory University in Atlanta with a stone. He found while hunting hickory nuts and recently cleared, North Carolina swamp, some fifty miles or eighty kilometers inland of Roanoke island. It was inscribed with a message. He wanted the experts at Emory to decipher turns out, the carved stone told story allegedly written by whites daughter Eleanor. The colonists. Endured two years of only misery and war after her father left for England ending with half. The settlers killed in armed combat and many of the others, including eleanor's husband daughter, slaughtered when a spiritual leader of the tribe. They lived with warned that the presence of the English. Settlers was angering the spirits, according to the stone only six men and one woman escaped. The stone was found to be offended by the experts at the time. It seems legitimate and better still it satisfied. Everyone's thirst foreclosure around to this dusty old riddle the story captured the imagination of the entire country and Emory professor Haywood J Pearce junior published a paper describing the stone in the refutable journal of southern history in nineteen thirty eight. But soon the plausibility of the stone came into question, we spoke with John Bence archivist at the rose library at Emory University. He said Emory became suspicious of Hammond after some professors and administrators traveled with him to Eden to North Carolina where he found the stone. The search for the original location of the stone was fruitless this attitude. The growing list of details about Hammond's discovery that we're hard to corroborate Emory had someone in California look into Hammond, but couldn't find much more than an address after Pierce and his father another academic paid him. And for the first stone and offered a five hundred dollar reward for any additional stones people might find. You can imagine. How many dare stones came out of the woodwork the pierces paid a man named Bill Eberhardt a stonecutter from Fulton County Georgia two thousand dollars for forty two forgeries. He brought them these stones had Eleanor marrying a Cherokee chief giving birth to another daughter named Agnes and eventually dying in a cave in Georgia. In April of nineteen forty one these Saturday Evening Post ran an expose on. The dare stones dismissing them all as forgeries citing an acronym. Stick language, and consistency of spelling that was unheard of at the time the Pierce's career suffered and the dare stones were stuffed in a basement at the father's university an embarrassment to everyone involved, but every so often academic interest turns again to the show on Riverstone. The original dare stone found by him. And in that North Carolina swamp, it's made of different rock than the others. A bright white quartzite interior and dark exterior that would have made a good choice for Eleanor dares missive to her father and in the nineteen thirties. The patina on the stone would have been difficult to chemically replicate. In addition. It doesn't contain the anachronistic language of the other stones some experts have determined. The only problem might be an Eleanor dares. Sign off the initials e WD, which would not have been typical signature in these sixth century. Many experts still dismissed the town Riverstone as an obvious phony. But it's possible that new research into Lisbeth in a pig Raphy chemical analysis and other rocket scriptures of the time period.
