Yeah, thanks, Eric it and you're right. It is exciting that we're going to be able to move on to face one B of the vaccine distribution here in Wisconsin. But again, there are many logistical challenges to ramping up. Especially because much of our vaccine is the Fizer vaccine, which requires ultra cold chain storage, so it'll be difficult to move that from the 16 hubs, Wisconsin, DHS has set up to have those storage capacities out into the public. Like so I asked everyone to be patient.

The villain the heel character that i sort of became in ninety seven that bret hart the one that was bashing candid The canadian flag and had the attitude that same character against john cena today would be a great If you could more together that would've been a great match. I think i would really I would ask great psychology. Great way to tell a story and see the was the perfect hero to go against. You know that hitman character. From that era i would love to have done that and say that it's sort of the same thing as what happened with me and you know when i think of when you and i worked. That was the beauty of is that the for the rest of going through this change and Started liking the the the bass and you know the guys like john cena. They're starting to get tired of cheering for the sable. Sort of you know number one baby face to the company kind of thing. It's like you know what we're not buying the sky and can we're going to go against the grain was a whole transition. That's never been you know. I don't think anyone could understand hard of what's the difference. Sometimes do what you happen to certain towns and no matter how bad you just this year for you and a lot of good you try to be a buoy you know and That'll that'll period. How we how we sort of switch places and sort of. I always tell people you want to understand. Great great working. Great psychology and great preaching to wrestlers appreciating the circumstances. That what what's happening in the business around them and how it is sort of. I think it's a really Such a great time. I mean i i know. We've talked to lots of times about that match.

'cause i know that survivor series when we fought you and i. We've we tried so hard to make that the match of all time like really gave are off what it was over like that we did everything you did everything we could think of every move every bang and i thought we took it to the edge and then all sudden we.

You know they got kind of building thing going and it's like yeah. We just worked a month ago kind of thing and it's like well you're gonna work again.

They're better athletes and their Some of them are just amazing It's amazing with someone like brian daniel bryan and And and pumpkin. Some you've got some of the stuff that they're doing is like. It just amazes me how they can take it another a couple of inches. Further all the time there's always somebody taking wrestling another over over the boundaries and Making a good again and there's a lot of really good talent. I've watching the message today. Well to your point things kind of keep evolving just like the game of football has How often are you able to watch monday night. Raw these days and stay on top of the current storylines angles and everything. They've got going here there off on the last few months. I've been sort of watching a pretty close. I tried to watch it. When i find that i started going to too much much backstage stuff community. Hokey story lines. I sorta fade off that Usually i go back and check it out again. There's certain guys like especially like second generation guys like You mile nieces nephews. Like airy and Bulldogs kid night. Art and kurt any kid miscarriage kid and and new york and i know all of new a lot of them when they were kids. Kind of always root for the second generation wrestlers. Just haven't been myself with third generation wrestlers. I think they understand that from a whole different perspective. It's kind of like they. You know obviously grown up in the system. Do you feel that gives Being second-generation gives those kids in advantage. Oh yeah it gives them the you know you know just watching it you know i think i. I don't know that. I was ever the greatest student in school. You know but. I think that re the real truth of it is. That was a student of wrestling. Like when i got out of school. I didn't wasn't paying worry about my math. But when the match. Is that night from selim programs. When i was a little kid for my dad after selling all programs i sit right at the time he table and i'd be watching new fence wrestling gene kinski. And you know. I've seen the best in the world right up close in studying watching going. Those guys are good. Like i knew the good from the bad ones. I knew the guys that When the guys came across to me as fake or didn't look very real or didn't look like the ticket serious I came across instantly me. And i think a young kid. I understood restaurant. I don't i think when i got into it and i didn't know how exactly work but i knew i had some ideas on all always i think as a kid and when they finally do break in and tell you that okay. This is how we're usually the break you into referee. You know it's not such a big shock. You kinda go okay. I kinda kinda new anyway like but at the same time My dad's face serious that You know let's stop. Let's let's go there brett k. Fame you took it serious. These days sports entertainment vincent man you know kind of came out of the closet so to speak with the business back in the day before all the exposes as when you grow up as when you grew up when i grew up wrestling was real and although you're second generation your dad was in a business. It was very protected. What is the biggest difference in your eyes between the k. Fehb era versus today's era I think it's it's never the same for the fans. I mean i think all i ever tried to do is make it as real sa- fan. I never liked to go someone who i never liked to be the one that gave it away. You know like when two wrestlers were drinking together after they fought each other and stuff like that. I never wanted to be one of those guys that gave it away. It's like oh totally you know. That's always wanted them to guess. Maybe there was a little tension between me and the one guy that didn't have to wrestle. Even he was in the same bar whatever it is and never ever. I always thought when. I was a little kid i wanted to believe it was real and the best part about being fan as a kid was when i thought it was real. That was when it was cool. Because really i wanna see fight next week and i want to see you know so i got. I grew up with all that sort of you know again. I grew up very defensive of wrestling. You know in my family with the with the family business at the same time it was. I don't know how many flights i had as a kid. I mean it makes me laugh. When i think about how many fights had as a kid simply over the statement that my dad's tougher near dad was was You know pretty to you. Know a wrestling match on the grass. We're usually. I put a professional wrestling move on a sweeper holder of boston crash. I ever the sheiks with at sheikh from detroit not chemically whatever. How many guys. That'd be with that you ever. You put a kid when you put a kid in a camel clutch on the school yard. You mean serious business brother. I remember thinking you.

Bret Kinsella - The State of Voice Tech
"I think the first time i saw you speak you talked about. You know phase. One and i believe you said phase one of voice. Assistance is more or less around proliferation which I think you can attest. Is ben something that's been ongoing thing. You know through all of the different devices and then in incorrectly from wrong about phase one then phase two was habituation specialization Which i believe you said that. Mike two thousand and nineteen so. I'm curious like do you consider where we're at with voice technology today to sort of be in this in the same phase or are we entering into a new phase in what categorizes that new phase. Okay that's interesting. I've been thinking about this a little bit. Because i think it was actually the beginning of always insider that i talked about entering phase two. Now i've had a couple of different discussions about this Also at conferences as well and so if probably characterize it slightly different ways depending on the context But i but as we're talking. Now let me tell you how i think about it. Right i think about the first phase was really the introduction it was essentially a narrowcasting type of concept was voice assistant within a context and the context was defined by the device it was available on and the things that people were doing on those devices and so we had the we have the narrow context of syria and smartphone. We had the narrow context of alexa on a smart speaker. And then where those things went. And when i first started talking about phase two. Which i still think is is right. It was really about expanding the distribution across surfaces. So this idea that voice assistant would have universal access and distribution is that term because we have a lot of technologies come along and it seemed very promising but then they don't get distribution and not enough people either have access to it or seek it out or then use it when they do have access to and so they die the by and and that's really one of the things. I was most interested in very early on. Would there be enough entry points for people to use voice assistance so that they could actually bring them in and so that second phase it. I was really talking about two years ago saying. Hey we're seeing the rise of smarts spl as we're seeing other types of smart home devices we're gonna see expansion in the car. We're going to see more us on the phone and other places right And i think that's largely ben correct. That's happened now. What i think about this idea. Habituation and the deeper adoption. That's really where we are. We're sort of i would say we're in phase one or phase point five of that and what it's largely been as habits that people had in other areas of their life And they're transferred it to avoi- system so the number one example is music neck talks about that nikon Y ford talks about that a lot and he. He really ties a lot of the things that are going on to music. And it's a useful rubric. I don't like buy into that one hundred percent but it's it's there's absolutely a significant significant correlation there with music because we see that smart speakers But i think more broadly what we're going to see is the just the benefit of this throughout all media

"May find these things work very well but like you said. The opinions are varied. There's a lot of them and that's dangerous. In fact there was that. Because i'm in the motorcycle industry. We typically believe that if we are riding the first six months of writing or the first year of writing is when we are the most everest in the states there was a study done in the late seventies. Early eighties called the hurt study. And that's the one. Nick kinda was the original basis of all the training here in the in this country that show that that was the case. And that's what's been taught to people but david huff great writer. Bright some fantastic books. I recommend if everybody knows it's h. U g h but it's pronounced huff. He's a here world-renowned as proficient motorcycling he dug into those stats a little bit and he found that there was an error in that they in fact there was more accidents at twenty four months than there was within the first year. Everybody else kind of wrote that opposite anomaly but he posted that in his book and he pulled it out of her study. And i referenced that quite often because what that tells me is that we are. We've become complacent. We stopped questioning. What's going on and that's one of those things we have opinion will guide the first six months. Well i don't know there's more information out there. Maybe it's something else. Maybe that's not. Just the only thing would these opinions we have to be looking at. What's the source. What's the background of the source. What's their reasoning for offering those opinions back to my recommendation. If somebody's looking for training if they're looking should they listen to buy. I always say ask that person. A question that draws heavy opinion asked them about a motorcycle type asked them about tires asked them about something that people form opinions about and if their answer is well. The best tire is or will the motorcycle. You need is then you can discount most of their opinion because the answer should be will that depends and if they don't ask you questions before they give an answer back. It's not an opinion. That's based on your needs. Specifically and i can tell you the best motorcycle is you're on a a ktm seven ninety as as well. That's the best motorcycle out there. And it is certain situation with the certain rider it. That's true but another situation might be twelve hundred gs or an africa twin or the temporary seven hundred or maybe it's a sierra to fifty honda. The best bike is going to be variable..

"What is the best compliment to you as an instructor as a trainer to someone or from someone out the the best compliment to me. I'll give you an actual story last year. My wife and i had planned to go down and just spend three months in columbia. We ended up only being there for about a month. And while i was there we made an arrangement to do a presentation and do a ride in bogota. We imagine well. Of course. I share this on facebook and on whatever media platforms. I have them to go out and do this. This little talk and had six travelers from north america that were on their trip. And they all modified their routes and their traveled dates and they're arrangements to be in bogus. Aw that day for my talk and of those half of them were former students of mine and the other half were people who just had seen me on youtube because at the time i was only doing the the motor trek stuff. I just pulled the plug on that the stories. They told me about their travels. And how the things that i had shared with them made a difference. One of the travellers sat down and said i'm only writing an adventure bike. Because i ran across video on accident and it inspired me to do that. I'd never thought about travel. Never mind writing these bites in here. I am in in columbia with you in boga tidy was really excited. That is the greatest compliment. That is what. I realized that. I am truly touched. Somebody's life that. I have made their life better that i've created a dream that they never had or help them fill a dream that they didn't think was possible. Nothing inspires me more. It's not worth much if people don't go out there and apply it and that's probably the hardest thing isn't it because i have an idea of hard certain things should happen. And it's based on experience that i've had in my life before and i feel i want to share that experience to make someone else's life better as a baseline thing. Would you agree that. I use that and go out and apply what they've learned themselves. I mean that's probably the best way to approach this kinda thing. Isn't it to some degree. Yes no timmy way. I'm going with this. They so many opinions out there. And i think sometimes just.

"I do it in the mud gravel instead you think of what's happening and what's about to happen and then how do i work around that. So that i get the perfect result. I wanna be a chef. Somebody gets been very enjoyable for myself watching your videos. You break it down in a way that that everyone can understand it and not only that in the videos you literally go down to ground level you would very often just flock on the ground and say while dc this little bumpier and this is what you would do here. One particular video was on twelve and you broke down very steep uphill in a very simple way for people to understand what it is. That's physically happening to your body to yourself and what it is that you need to in to get out. One of the challenges between being a great writer or being. A great trainer is being able to articulate. What's happening and recognize what's happening. And that i think is one of the challenges for riders who want to become very good or they aspire to be as good as they can be because obviously the end. There's the so called talent. The other thing that happens very often in our realm of writing and adventure writing. Luckily i get to see you doing this. Podcast and i'm quite aware you're not a young guy nor are most of us that are on. These bikes is just not that industry and there some realism with that. We know that we have certain limitations. We have energy limitations. We have joined said. Don't necessarily work and when we watch somebody extremely county to watch somebody like chris pfeiffer. Doing stunt work or chris. Birch now is very popular. He's obviously a very talented writer. And jimmy lewis x ray sunnis drake. I in fact. I i really liked the way jimmy trains. We train very similar. But you watch these people and you just go. Yeah i'm not ever gonna do that. I could appreciate the talent of writing this adventure by doing a whealy as far as you can see but it's never something i'm going to accomplish and nor do i find it something. That's very practical. That's one of the things. That changed how i teach in how i trade. I mentioned that become an adventure trainer was an accident. What happened to me. Was i had a local dealership a bmw dealership. Come to me. And say hey. We'd like to run a class for our jess writers. And this is. This is way back before the big thing. Before there was any training schools. It was very few options back then. And it's an. I don't really write those bikes. That's not my thing. So i'll come on. Just you know you do the dirt school. You can ride a dirt bike. Do something for us okay. We'll put something together and we basically did a dirt bike class for these big guess writers and they had a great time. But when you look back at what. We did what many writers are doing now. They don't recognize adventure. Bikes are not dirt bikes. These are very large heavy beast. That probably don't belong most the places we want to take them and although you can ride it like a dirt bike especially with talent. They don't crash like dirt bikes. There's a whole lot more mesko and on there and over the years. What i've done is i've constantly reflected back on. Are we teaching. How are we teaching it. And how practical is this in the real world. And every time. I do a trip every time i travel every time i go to mexico. Every time i go to africa overseas i was a little back and go what were the actual skill sets. I used during that trip and let's break it down to what's most important their stuff. That's fun and their stuff that's important and necessary. So what gives you the greatest amount of satisfaction in all of this..

"Was your voices in my head. And here i wasn't they give me some situation and it got me through and it just excites me that i can reach out and make a difference in people's lives that's what keeps me excited fantastic brilliant stuff. I showed this thing you say. I don't teach people how to cook. I teach hard to be shifts. I mean squat a interesting statement. Like i said i'm very analytical. I like breaking things down to understand. Why the difference between an instructor and a master and most training that we take most classes we take we take it with instructors. They know the material but they are not necessarily of the mature. They don't know the background but they don't know how to change things. They have a formula in front of them. When i was in india a couple years ago. I spent about three months in india going around the country doing training i was released of the liabilities. I have here in the united states. I could experiment and try things of playthings and try new concepts with them. And that's that really helped me grow and part of what i was doing going. We have such a complicated way of teaching people. When i watched people teach. I know this. Because i was taught to teach this way and i have taught this way. I provide a formula. Okay you're going up a hill so when we go up the hill i need to be In front of the bike up over the handlebars is. I go up the hill. And i need to add throttle as i go up the hill and but then i was going well. How far over the handlebars well. How much throttled. I need well. What if the hill has a dip in the middle of what. There's a log in iraq halfway up the hill. And that's where i went. That's a problem because we have a formula. We have a recipe for writing. And that's why. I said i don't want teach people to cook and wanting to be chefs. A chef doesn't necessarily walk it and look at a recipe and go. I need half a cup of flour. I need a quarter cup of sugar. They don't that's not how they cook. They know how everything interacts they know if they had just a little. Bit of a certain spice. What it's gonna do to the entire thing. They don't go overboard. And when i teach people i want to teach them exactly that same way i want them to understand what they do and what the ramifications are in how that works so that you're not thinking i need to move forward and in fact. Oh what does the bike need to do and what happens if i move on the bike and that's where i came up with. The concept of the weight was writer. Because it's it's one target that we're focused on instead of what do i do downhill. What do uphill..

Biden press secretary accuses Trump campaign of funneling questions to Fox News in spar with anchor
"Biden Eyes in Michigan, Joe Biden says Democrats in Michigan. Who voted for him and Obama twice but then voted for Donald Trump. Are basically Racists. This is a county that President Obama and you carried twice on then President Trump carried by 12% points in 2016. Why do you think so Many of these voters turned against the Democratic Party in 2016. You know, I think it was the feeling that they were taking for granted. I don't know that for a fact. And I think that he he used that dog whistle on race. That's one hell of a way to try to get back Those votes. And Michigan and Wisconsin accused them of B was being closet Racists. AAA racist that voted for me and Obama there. Ah! Yeah, they bought into the dog whistle. That's a home strategy. Bolt. What is a bold strategy? Cotton now as bad as Joe Biden is on camera His campaign press secretary is worse. No way. T J Duck Low Just this little weaselly looking dude, he made the mistake of going on with Bret Bear on Fox News yesterday. And listen. Bright bears, not a got your questions kind of guy. He's pretty straight up. As a matter of fact, he was asking some easy yes or no questions. And it didn't really go well for Biden's press secretary. What specifically would the former vice president have done? Well, let's get a few things straight. The vice president was not against the travel ban. First of all, second of all, let's let's remember, and he wasn't Brett. Let's remember an important distinction. Donald Trump was the president of the United States. It was on Donald. I'm asking you, Joe Budden. It was on the was Donald action toe actually protect the PT closed the travel that show Biden wrote an op ed in USA Today in January, warning that the threat was coming. Joe Biden said in February that Donald Trump should get people on the ground in China. What did what did Donald Trump do? Donald Trump was praising China. Donald Trump was praising President. She's response, saying that they had it under control. When clearly he knew, as we now know, from Bob Woodward. They did not have it under control. He should have been protecting the American people. He should have been putting real plans in place. So let me just confront in clinically dangerous. Understand. Let me just clarify your saying that Joe Biden was for closing down travel from China when the president did it. Joe Biden has been cleared. I continue the fact checks if they're helpful, Brett Joe Biden has been clear that he was not against that travel ban that he was for Joe Biden has been clear about how I can continue the fact checks if they're helpful. This has been fact checked into oblivion. Okay, I'm just asking the question. You're saying yes. He was for the shit. China travel ban when the president implemented it. 2 48 hours after receiving that briefing, the important thing about the travel babe, But I know that you will like to cite the travel ran. I know that. You know the president does. That's why I'm bringing it up are obviously it's going to be in the debate. Hold on. The important thing to know about the travel ban is that even after the president implemented that travel ban, tens of thousands of people came in and out, Take it. Then what was the question? You're going to send me some back goes on like this for, like, five minutes. This poor dude. TJ Duck Low, the campaign press secretary. He's worse on camera than Biden. Now, Here's Brett Baer asking a very simple question. Does Joe Biden have the questions coming to him in a teleprompter? Does he have his responses in a TelePrompTer because that's one of the allegations of the Trump campaign is saying Let's see how this question goes. Nobody ever used to teleprompter during local interviews or to answer Q and a with supporters were not goingto get this is this is straight from the Trump campaign they're using and what it does, and what it does is it's trying to distract the American just from there using and they talk about it every day. When you say yes or no, That's what they talk about it every day break because they don't have a coherent you answer Yes or no, Brett. They talked about it every day because they don't have a coherent argument for why Donald Trump. Deserves reelection deserves four more years. We know that he lied to the American people. We know that he has not shown leadership during this crisis, and they are desperate to throw anything they can against the wall to try to distract from the fact I understand, But you can't answer the question, but I am not going to allow. Okay, Trump campaign toe, funnel their questions through Fox News and get me to respond to that. So that's a no. Or yes, I don't even know why I got the question, wouldn't you? If you say no. If that was the case does Joe Biden use a teleprompter? When the answering questions to the press If the answer was no, wouldn't you? Would there be a problem saying? No. I understand the problem saying Yes, right. Why would you just lie? No, Not at all. Yeah, And then and then the other one. Well, well, You know what? I'm actually gonna have the E mail you the answer the memories. He's gonna email brown bear the fact checks right? I'll email you The fact checkers. Google Google? Yeah, That's not a good answer you You know it's bad when Joe Biden's coming up to you saying Listen, Kenny, you're pretty bad on camera, sir. My name's not Kenny. It doesn't matter. You're not allowed to speak on camera anymore. And this is coming from me. Joe Biden
Gene-Altered Squid Could Be The Next Lab Rats
"Okay Nell. Greenfieldboyce last year, you visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts. Tell me about it. What was it like? So it's sort of beautiful location right there on the coast of Massachusetts and you go inside. In you know, they took me to this room full of kind of burgling aquariums everywhere and. All of our exotic animals, the guy giving me, the tour was Brett Grassy and his official title. There is manager of Cephalopod operations. It's amazing title. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight PAJAMAS, squids. These ones are native to Australia. We've got our octopus church, which is the pygmy zebra octopus, their native to Nicaragua small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than table. A. Table Grape. Nice. Yes. So they're they're looking at all kinds of squid and octopus is to try to find ones that you are easy to take care of that reproduce. quickly, that are going to be good to be sort of like the next lab rat and their work involves everything from the very latest high tech kind of gene editing tools to just like a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor. Why rocks? Well, they use them to make like little habitats in the tanks but they also use them to way down some of the lids. So octopuses are notorious for being able to kind of escape out of their enclosures. I've heard of this in aquariums. Octopus have been known to climb out and wonder around. Yeah, they're clever. You know. So when I visited Bret told me, there were roughly around three thousand cephalopods under their care there. But honestly walking around and looking in the tanks, you can hardly see any because they like to hide in those rocks and you know other little things, little containers. Keepers put in their tanks at one point read opened up this one plastic container and reached into the water and pulled out this little like like terra cotta pot and inside was this California two spot octopus. She's right down in there. Because see her eyeball, fairly see her. Yeah, and so basically, this is a kind of a common Dan either they're gonNA find rocks or. Some sort of basically dark enclosure sometimes. So this was a female octopus sitting on her eggs, and while we were looking at her, she's sort of shot out some water at us. She's of trying to skirt some water here. She thinks that I'm going to give some food or she's just trying to say you know I'm sitting in here taking care of my eggs and You know come back another time so now. Now. If you had a podcast called nell spies and octopus I would listen to it will we would have a lot to talk about because cephalopods are pretty crazy i. mean they have these sophisticated brains, they can solve puzzles, they can change their skin color like an instant. They can re-grow arms, they travel using jet propulsion. I. Mean. Some people have said they are as close to aliens living on Earth as we've got. that. is so cool. Honestly, we do a whole episode just about cephalopods, but I WANNA go back to this research question about using them as model organisms. So why CEPHALOPODS in particular? Well. It's all those odd features that makes them interesting to biologists I. Mean, for example, I mentioned their brains, you know the they're clearly sophisticated problem solvers, but their brains just look completely different from our own like they showed me one in a glass vial that looked almost like a triangle shape and you know there's brains that look like doughnuts that wrap around the Esophagus, you know at the same time, we know that some of their brain chemistry. Chemistry has got to be somewhat similar to ours because there have been experiments at how octopuses react to the drug ecstasy. Right? It seems to make them like little more friendly and cuddly to. So you know it's it's just fascinating to look at these creatures that are on the one hand. So different and on the one hand similar and studying, them could help scientists see what's necessary and what's not for being able to perform you know amazing mental feats. Feats like the ones people can do, and apparently you know some cephalopods seem

NCGOP alleges corruption on Charlotte City Council, files ethics complaints
"Has filed ethics complaints against two City Council members. Dimple as Mira and James Smudgy Mitchell. And before we get everybody's reaction to this, Fox, 46 Charlotte's Rochelle are Metzger set it up pretty nicely, but I wanted to clear the Air. Charlotte City Councilman James Mitchell says he wants to clear the air about an ethics complaint filed by State Republicans, accusing the Democrat of using taxpayer money to visit Detroit sports facilities in November 2018 is the first time ever That that has been a test of my name and is truly follows. Mitchell says It was strictly an economic development trip to talk about a potential dome stadium for the Carolina Panthers and future facilities for Charlotte FC. But the complaint says Mitchell's former company stood to benefit from the trip. Bart Moloch was the stadium expert. I spent time with elected, efficient and instead of Detroit, Thomas Entertainment District. That was that true was about it, And so there was no way he benefited from politically no benefit from financially. That was me doing my work this chair of economic development commit. In a separate complaint, the state GOP accuses Democratic Councilwoman dimple as Meera of receiving campaign donations in exchange for a yes vote when re zoning issues came before the council in a statement. As Meera says, in part, these are active and traditional donors. Too many candidates. Most importantly, My vote can't be bought, and I have never received the endorsement of the prominent developer organizations. This is purely a racist, sexist and political attack, as Meera says the complaint is an attempt by Republicans to deflect attention away from concerns surrounding Republican Councilman Tark Bakari, whose company was given $1.5 million of city money for an advanced technology jobs program. That money has since been taken away to which dark Macari took to Twitter last night. And in a Siri's of tweets defended himself, he said, Among other things, if Councilwoman Dimple s marriage does not publicly retract this libelous statement and refrain from repeating this action in the future. I will be forced to take swift legal action. The Democrats took a cheap shot at the ethics of Tart Muk are very cheap shot the attorneys for the city Have basically cleared him of any wrongdoing. In fact, documents and videos of a previous meeting from weeks before showed that the Democratic Council members knew everything from committee meetings and even Complemented tart macari on his work. You wonder what the political rationale was when they all of a sudden voted. I think 9 to 1 to cancel a contract with dark, which he abstained from voting, by the way, which is by what the rules are now the GOP, I think, fired back and said, if you're going to take shots against AH, Republican, one of only two Republicans in the county. You might be living in a glass house. Well, Bret
Why does Donald Trump want to ban TikTok?
"For those who are blissfully unaware late last week, us? President Donald Trump announced that he would ban Tiktok and furthermore he said he would block Microsoft from taking over the APP which was apparently a deal that was in the works Then he's back flipped and given Microsoft, forty five days to complete the transaction and he's, but now he signed that the US Treasury should get a copy of the deal which seems weird in a country, which is terrified of socialism so like That's a basic recap, but there's so many little weird bonkers nuances to this Britain I actually bret benefit and I actually read about published on risky Biz in the Linke's quakes showing. But look, let's let's get the conversation going now and we'll start with you, alex, know they're probably some national security ramifications or concerns around APPs lactic TIKTOK. But why do we get the impression? That's not what's driving this whole thing? Well, you make it then. Prussian, because the president of the United States continues to change his justification of what he's doing is making a national data protection law up on the fly on twitter. and. So you know it's it's quite possible that watching what's going on that. You'd reasonably conclude that this isn't a well-considered change in policy, but perhaps part of the ongoing trade war and yell perhaps a mix of trump's anger at what would normally be protected speech against him on Tiktok and partially to distract from the fact that at the same day that he made that announcement, it was announced that the United States economy shrunk by nine percent in just one quarter. And so you know all those things together. Is really polluting this process now that being said I, think there are some interesting risks here in there is something we have to talk about about Chinese APPS and the data of Democracies sitting servers available to the PR. But if you're going to do that for my perspective Tiktok is probably not even the top five or top ten companies. I'd be concerned about there's a lot of Chinese companies that are much more critical inner city and much more important data than they are. This seems. To be completely driven by trump and not by some kind of process and either the White House or or the agencies were, there can rationally considering these things. Now look you and I, we have access to gripe bonds that most people don't actually have access to. A wonderful part of the job. I mean, my gripe tells me that this is not going through the usual processes. I mean the US investigation into Tiktok did start last year. Right? This is a legit sign. Lee Rooted investigation, but it's the escalation since like last week, that is just the just the mad pot, and as you say I mean why the hell out we talking about we chat and that's that's a curly a one to a strategy. I know that there are politicians here. Who Use we chat as a way to communicate with Chinese Australians, for example, right? So that whole thing is a can of worms and I think blocking chat in. A, lot of places around the world is going to be a real loser, right? So that's maybe one reason people don't WanNa. Touch it. But yeah, this is a very complicated. Nuanced issue that has just been. The whole thing strange. Isn't it? It is so syphilis. The law that we're talking about here is was really built to protect kind of the American industrial base around defense. Rightly, you have an important helicopter manufacturer and you don't WanNa get bought by Iran. That's what cities is for. It has never been used as a back door for data protection framework right here. In the United States, we do not have data protection framework. There is no law that says you cannot ship social security numbers of Americans to a Chinese company. Nothing prevents that in theory now, obviously, we have A. Rules that have been created through FTC decisions and such. But overall, we don't have a framework for deciding what is really important Pi and work in it set up, and so to create that out of whole cloth, using a stiffest interpretation is really probably the worst way to handle what is eight really really complicated problem, and like you said, there's other companies put away the top and I think for my perspective, we chat the top Vermont for me. Right is used by the entire chinese-speaking Gaspara. Anybody who has any in China uses it, and that includes people in Singapore people in Hong Kong people in Taiwan. So lots of these places where Chinese intelligence is really interesting. What's going? We chat has become. Part of People's daily lives, and unlike tiktok, it carries very sensitive data. Right? People run their companies. All we chat, they have their personal communications reach at the. They probably arrange affairs and do things that are very black maleable on we chat and there evidence from Citizen Lab, and some other folks who have done worth that demonstrate that you can kind of get side channel information out of we chat that demonstrates that they are watching and they are doing at least scanning of certain phrases, even communications that go. I. Mean I m point, I. think that's well known and well established that we chat is certainly used by the EPA to do surveillance, right? Like that is the reason. So successful in the reason that they can block other communications, funnel people through it, but this brings us to an important question. There are some concerns that say censorship on TIKTOK. For example, there was a case where they would deleting videos that referred to. Human Rights abuses occurring in Xinjiang in in China, right, and that turned into a into massive Khufu four. Good reason. Don't get me wrong Let's not pretend for a second, the PSE or a bunch of fluffy. Fluffy pandas. Okay. That is that is certainly not the case. But let's, be real. Trees names for them. But let's look. Let's be be real here. Right? Like the hottest security angle to this, right? It's it's. It's hard to make a case that it's. It's a terribly dangerous APP now when the United States blocked the sale of grinder. To to an offshore concern I, mean I think that was another Chinese company that wanted to buy that. Absolutely.

And busted open, but you can also see him from time to time on backstage wwe. I think very good. I think a very good episode. This past Tuesday with bread heart some interesting comments to Ma from Bret Hart on backstage. Wow Man, you know what the biggest one! Was He? He said that he wished that he could have done it differently and if he had, he would not have left the wwe and went to Debussy deb your. And? Think about all the people that. You know after Brit left. All the people that came in. Imagine him still wrestling? All of those guys in? Bringing those guys along like it would have been unbelievable. Thought another thing that was. Pretty impactful was the fact that he felt like he was set up to fail. Like the guys that were the powers-that-be. He said Hogan was basically. Making all the decisions and he made the decisions that benefited his friends. Rather than doing what was good for Business House like? Wow, so I mean it didn't paint a pretty picture of the. Of, hoving, in, his regime. It's it's interesting because Reading Bret Hart's book. He praises Hogan because he talked about. You know when you're on the card with Hogan. He definitely made more money than without hogen on the card and I've always said that I've never been a big hole cogan fan, but I will say this that he did know how to generate a crowd I think he is. One of the biggest stars in the history of pro wrestling when you look at WCW with Bret Hart, I mean first of all nothing seemed to go right. They waited too long to put bread hard on TV I. Mean Bret Hart was. You know so hot and fresh off. The Montreal screw that people wanted to see Brad. Hart, and then the bread hard as part of that star Cave match with sting in Hogue, and it just didn't go that match was a flop. Flop The to build was fantastic for that Star K bachelorette sting and Hogan but I thought the ending was wonky. I thought Hogan got way too much offense in that match with sting because it should have been all about, stink kicking, Hokuto Gonzales but and then you know obviously with Goldberg and hearts been vocal lately about Goldberg and how you know. He didn't think that Goldberg was really safe in the ring caused. You know breadth that concussion and Bret Hart's. Career ending yeah. Bret heart went from such a know such an amazing hall of fame career in the WWF didn't have that same career in WCW Marken, but you can't really blame bread hard for the contract that he had with the WWF. That lifetime contract you know Vince McMahon wanted to change that contract and WCW was throwing a lot of money at Eric Bischoff in the www was throwing so much money at heart hard to say no, so obviously I'm sure he would have changed it. Because not a lot of good and bright hearts. WCW Career Martin and he didn't get respected and revered over there like he didn't get he he. He said he mentioned. I had a lot to offer like not just for me, but just my knowledge and understanding of what the business required and what I could do. To help make people better and they didn't allow me to do that. It was like I was set up to fail. Wow. Words have those heavy as rehabbing. That is definitely heavy backstage. They give you nuggets man. You've been awesome on backstage by the way mark.

"I don't want to say I'd be good in a firefight but I was good in a firefight. I got COM. Yeah and said please put that gun out of my head and set it down and look at everything. Carbon all these stories in the book. There's pictures of the hate to say it but my seventies style rocking wardrobe. You'll have to. I mean most of the book is a good laugh. A lot of self-deprecation and just funny stories and facing adversity. You've been weird. A few started singing knocking on heaven's door during that encounter with the guy with the rifles. No that didn't happen. There was a lot of things going through my brain best song right then. I don't know of anyone told you. Brett but what the the idea for this show is. It's an origin story shows so I think it's really interesting. How Uber Successful people were able to get to where they are now. A lot of people know kind of the story. I would assume a lot of people know the story from poison to Rock love to to now doing mass singer but to kind of go through. How did you get to the poison? Days are doing if we go back and hear that story and I guess this is cut going to be probably like almost like a cliff notes version of your book though if you like any these stories than you might want to delve a little bit deeper and the book but the eyewitness Thank you for asking is for real. Because that that's the moment I say everybody. You know back then again in the same as you when you're coming out as a starving musician when you're coming out as a band you have to make that commit At the House oversight guy and you gotTa Bet Yourself I people use that word but I mean that word. You have to bed on you and at the same time. You're an artist here on the east coast plane. Five sets a night three sets tonight cover songs and we try to slip in a few originals with no one's plant into songs. No one's doing things. We made our move to the west coast which at that time on the sunset strip was given opportunities for bands like us but there was a lot of pay to play in all this other stuff going on. I say this to everybody. One of the big arcs is in the story. Is You cite vetting on yourself. You've gotta find a way surround yourself hopefully with great friends and you go out there and the great people that all have the same mission. If you're not a solo artist had the same journey and then we found every way we would go and when a lot of the band's a lot of the bans in La would worry about renting limo to drive up to the troubadour which is colder trying to make it look big. That's great but then you go inside the troubadour or the Roxie inner seven people. Yeah and so we were the opposite of what we would do. We lived at behind a dry cleaner in all many then went to making flyers and we couldn't afford the good colors white and carry yellow. That were expensive so they gave us a boatload skids of green flyers. That's literally where the poison green merchandise and a lot of bands use now is called. Poise degree merchandise color. We got flyers. No one wanted and we put him. Everywhere ended up becoming our trademark. In when you drove by him you'd see him up and you knew we were playing so we would pull up a windowless chevette. And when I say a ban barely ran and pusher urine there we were on our own catering and our own band so but never once during that struggle never once during that struggling new we ever think given in and I just looked at it like these. These are truly my college years. This is my dues and we just found a way to get it when you look back because I have that same thing too. Obviously I wasn't in the gigantic ban but I have those paying my dues memories and maybe we all have revisionist history. I don't know but I look back on those years when I was like waiting tables like moonlight in a radio stations. Making like no money for whatever reason I look back at those as being the best years of my life absolutely it. Just add to that. I never knew anything was bad and I think that the attitude on the gratitude. I'm grateful gratitude is my attitude and I think that with yourself. The reason for your success is the same thing. I look back viewers and nate. Although they were hard times or you consider I was living if there was a below the poverty level I went one level below that. Yeah when I say we. We looked at the back half of dry cleaner because our gear fit in there right on we were on Grove Avenue and down in Washington. And we didn't care. We did everything we could practice a narrow person air repick up in jobs and I could tell you why I learned all my cooking skills by working. Bob's big boy. Yeah joining making Adolf I can. I can cook up. I was good to dishes and a Good Friday cook. I wanted to go back a little bit further. You grew up in Pennsylvania. Is it true that you grew up either in or near a town called mechanicsville yet McCain spur yet syrup I grew up in Pennsylvania but I was originally born in Pittsburgh and Butler. Now my dad was in is a veteran in the navy and we got relocated to the inland naval that came back from his service overseas and And then we got relocated air and made our life in in both mechanics bird and it's Burger Harris version mechanics. Berg sounds like a fictional town from the movie cars. I am amazed at that place exists. It seems very blue collar kind of salt of the earth. People living there and you decided to do something that I assume not. A lot of people in that town decided to do was pursue music. Was that a tough sell. Like on your parents and your family and your friends. Yeah there was a couple of things going on so six years old. I get diagnosed as diabetic insulin-dependent shots a day since then six years old till reindeer stand. I'm going to you and we that was number one. My Dad Naval Depp. In all to everybody their music one bad thing people love listening to it but because a lot of bands didn't make it when you said. Hey I'm going to become a musician we're GONNA go to La. We're going to make a record. It's going to be great and career it. It wasn't like people go. Oh my God. It's thought that's a great hobby But if you wanted a real job you went down and got a job in the off. She went down under the naval. Depp got a job you went. Ups or can he shoot whatever whatever was available for job right and and I think that that is one of the the true battles is again not just betting on yourself believe in to receive it in other words. I had a vision. It and then I went and sold everything. I owned every from skis too. I had a I love motorcross. Oh my favorite dirt bike. You know sold my car in that. That was worth all two hundred bucks and you know all that stuff but I never never had a doubt. We loaded that stuff in a band and we drove to California. Figured it out piece by piece with bobby and Ricky and see see myself in a guy named Matt Smith and we made our moves so you get out here. You're these flyers on this cheap green cardboard paper from so speedy from Sir speedy. You're you're a line cook. At Bob's big boy was there. A paradigm shift. It was there a point where you're like. Oh this is working this is GonNa this is GonNa Happen. Was there a moment? I know you're looking for already. Goes a little for the rain. So here's what happened. Here was the blessing of all of this. We played everywhere. We would sell out everywhere. We Played Two nights at the palace. Place clubs run heard of or a local original ban with no record deal. Then we play a place called the country club at receipt of California. We sign a deal as US is the record label with an independent label called a Nigga by green world at the time and we make the album With the cat dragging. We're talking no money. We slept in the studio for the week that they would let us there We recorded two songs as the almost live and are signing day when everyone else was talking about limos and jets and all this stuff we were setting in El Segundo California on my but underground shrink wrapping and packing our albums and cassettes in boxes to ship off as an independent band. Here was the beauty. We kept all of their publishing. No one wanted any the polishing forever rose or any other songs now that nod by is the exact words From many labels we just don't hear the nucleus of any hit on any of these songs. So here's talk dirty to me. I won't forget you every rose some to believe in none of whom we're GONNA make it. We were a great band for the trip at that. Was it and here. We are thirty one years later but the beauty we got to keep all publishing and we owned our content and it ended up being a a really great blessing most fans as an artist. You're starving you'll sign away for a Limo. Ride and a jacket. Most yields got signed for that in the owned. All your stuff for us again. Went back to this bobby and ricky seats. You Myself sedans delicious bed on ourselves because the money they're giving us as bad loan. Anyway we get paid back and we're starving already. Let's just start to really make it when you really make it then? Are you guys like all right now? We can get the leather jackets. Limos or you still doing pretty blue collar. No we. We ended up ours was. Our dream wasn't so much a Limo Audrey more to get on a tour bus toward the country actually I am not selling some telling you truth. Playing music to this. Omai is still moves. Exciting for me man. I get to play and I got to travel and in a few leather jackets and there are a lot of insane parties but luckily luckily along the way we were traveling. Do we love and but are crossroad. True moment in life in this is in the book. This is the crossroad we play. We were playing nightclubs breaking. We got to play Texas Stadium. It's on the I won't forget you video by poison. So here's Paul Stanley on stage. Who has planning with US Steven Tyler? Smacking me in back wishing luck underway to stage the guys from Boston watching this show. And we're filming a video for I won't forget you in front of eighty three thousand people and I'm like this is surreal. Took me three songs to even get air into my lungs. Because I was so nervous. And then we got done. I party like a Rockstar. Not GonNa lie through down. It was good but I've never been rude. Anybody always treating great. I partied with the fans like a Rockstar and probably twelve hours from then we were driving through. I believe it was Carlson corner either New Mexico or Texas to another show. I'm making this up reported to a truck. Stop I get out. I'm like man. We are rockstars. Eighty three thousand people. This is awesome. We walked in like the Bob. Seger turn the page about five truckers scenario a couple. Maybe a couple people looked at us. Like who the hell are you guys? What are you doing here? And it was the best moment of my life if leveled it perfectly. If there was ever a moment of me thinking Mrs going to happen every day gave me a perfect balance to my life and I took that in that became every rose has its store so it was a perfect moment so that was the moment that you decided to write that song that we well that a broken heart. But I'll get into that. It was right at that time. It was the Put the dime into the old payphone. Doubt waiting for my pieces of clothing I owned to dry and That phone call was heartbreaking. Got On the phone. I heard another guy's voice in the background in the apartment we lived in that for me was my that was true heart moment but from it came a decent song was her name. Rose.

The kids there and stuff And one of it was really cool. Is Kids with juvenile diabetes. They use the money money. The money goes to different different charities and organizations but they'll use them the money to take kids who have juvenile diabetes to camps where they can learn to manage it and to control it and I always have those interesting. I knew Brett was diabetic. He talked about that a lot. I just can't imagine like five Anson's throughout the day and then he gets up to work out like not. This is just an hour-long me like saying how great Michael I WANNA be with. Someone and I mean is hardly because he has now. I don't work out and eat like shit but I wanna be with someone that does work out. Because here's the thing you'll know me too. I'm morph it.

I'm the only bitch gets a fatter from having a personal trainer. I swear it I would go and get so hungry afterwards and I go get like cheese sticks Arby's and then I would go home and sleep which is like awful. I go eat mozzarella sticks. Just pass the buck out like anyway. I know you know. I wish I could have been more of this. Trish more relaxed. I was just so excited and nervous rather about a couple of things. I was nervous. 'cause I'm actually really sucky with the technology even though my job is online and online stuff like I thought. Oh what if I can't hear him or if it's like choppy like it happens all the time with me and my wife isn't great shop. And then he's in. He was in his guitar room for those listening to the Audio. Here's a room with a bunch of ours and it's the room that you always see him in on like tick talk or his website and so it was just a real and it just happens quickly like all of a sudden he popped up and true story true story.

I wanted to do a sex tape. I wanted to be a blonde bombshell. I wanted have big fake tits and I wanted to be entertainment. Somehow I kind of achieved all that Rockstar has been so I'm just getting But I was in a phase where I was a fucking groupie and I wasn't I wasn't a Groupie for any old. I was a groupie for eighties bands. I can talk about this on the podcast a little bit. What then WHO's still listening? Because I don't really talk about it. It's not like I dated any of these people long term so I feel like I can freely talk about this. There is being called faster pussycat and I again. I use the term dating very loosely. I definitely was just hooking up with all these people is love I would like. Hey Yeah I wanNA fuck like I need a little more substance which I love it. That's what he said at the beginning of our interview and he was just kind of need a personality. 'cause I was so my head was in the clouds. I was just so discombobulated.

His girlfriend was working there at the same time. It was ten years ago. I don't know where he is now but he looked more like Steven Tyler back in the eighties. They'll have the eighties hair which I thought eighties rockstars were really beautiful. They were really pretty. Tommy Lee always had a very pretty look to them. Vince Neal Bret Michaels was definitely the prettiest I thought I and I'm not saying that truly. He was like the prettiest looking he had vince. Neal ask five like they have a similar survive but Brett's face was just so much prettier. Beautiful his is anyways so yeah so. Tamie down leasing or fashion.

He was so cool to do my intro Omega Sevi- look offer teacher. It was first music. Videos like shady quality music should equality song in my recording. My vocals were awful.

Hey you WanNa intro the song I did. And he's like yeah and you know what to wrap this all up kind of goes with breads message to just kind of go for it. What did he keeps saying? Like bleeding yourself like it. Believe in yourself because that's too cheesy on the cool the way he said it. Bet On yourself. Yeah just bet on yourself I can do it you know. Just do it and you'll find a way like hey you'll find a way and I thought that was so inspiring. I think that's so cool the whole conversation.
