"The guy who wrote the melodies and those incredible chromatic harmonies and my chromatic harmonies I'm talking about consecutive chords that are like minor and major key. Those kind of things you'd hear in classical music, you know? And you didn't hear that in too many pop songs. But back would contribute to lyrics along the way too. I mean, he was part of the there was sort of a mind melt going on there. They were trying to create a mood. They were trying to achieve more than just kind of a crash landing between the two here's the lyrics is working on one side of the room and here's the guy writing a melody on the other side of the room. And then they come together. It was more about we want to create and move a sustained mood that for three or four minutes and these songs. And that's what they were able to do. Yeah. Well, I've always enjoyed the music. And I know our listeners have two. I don't own that many LPs in many albums that are musical soundtracks, but Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid Love that score. I don't know if you feel the same way about it as I do. Well, you know, I'm less of a fan of the soundtrack Y Broadway stuff. Even that stuff is huge and you think about that era, those songs were crossing over to pop radio. You don't see too many Broadway soundtracks or movie soundtracks crossing over to pop radio anymore. But that was definitely the case with those guys. And again, I give them full credit for just the level of songwriting. It was a cut above most of this stuff coming out of that out of that area. They were kind of raising the game for everybody. And the other thing about backup, we should note, John, is that he was probably one of the few songwriters kind of a behind the scenes guy by nature, younger, they're working in private to write these songs. And then they had performers doing them. People recognize birth back rack. They knew who he was. He was kind of the epitome of the cool guy in the 60s. For better or worse. And to me, the epitome of that was, you know, even two cameo appearances as himself in those Austin Powers movies. What are the swinging $60 about? And then you've heard back rack. It's kind of their example. This guy's cool. How many 60s swingers can come in the 90s and sort of say, hey, I'm just cool guy. And I'm a look. Greg cuts the co host of sound opinions.

And you know, you do a lot for the game. And I think what the folks out there need is, you know, people that speak from the heart speak the truth and give them something that the game really could give back to them because mom and pop are really the backbone of racing, you know, a lot of them are passing away and a lot of them are gone, but you and I know Dale and Jim, we watched the pillars of the sport, you know, come and go and now you have new set of fans and some of the younger guys that get along, you know, I love young people. I get along with them and they got great ideas, but they're a little confused sometimes with our business. So I have to solve a recession. Tell the way it is. You know, and Bill, you know, you can tell where you're getting along. You know, what? Happy to be there today. Well, yeah. It's good to be able to talk about racing in layman's terms and people can understand and get to know and enjoy our sport more. I'll tell you a story about Nick and now one day it's Saratoga driving out the back gate and I've had a bad week and Nick sitting under a tree. It's about 4 o'clock in the afternoon of feed time and I pull over and we sit there and under his tree up by his barn and just talk for two hours. I left her film so much better about the game ready to go conquer the world after expanding two hours with the positive energy of Nick. Nikki, remember 36 red? Absolutely. That was one of my first shots to the big show. Absolutely. And I remember we were underneath a tree too and that's when I first met you when I was doing a story about you in 36 red and that's when I first met you and I was, it's been a relationship. I think it stood the test of time. You've even put up some of my dumb questions over the years. I was looking at the time and this was great because I had to meet somebody for dinner at 6 o'clock.

And I wanted to ask you my sense was that Billy Madison was sort of a turning point for you where you had said at one point quote Billy Madison, they slammed and I didn't expect it. I was like, oh, these guys are going to see that I'm trying to do something. I don't know, connecting to my generation. Other stuff like that. At a certain point, do you just say, I care about pleasing my audience, which it's certainly doing. And if the rest of the people like it great, if not, it's sort of a turning point with Billy Madison. It was like they wrote so many bad things about it. And like you said, I wasn't expecting it. Me and my friends knew how hard we worked on it. And so we thought people would say, wow, these guys really thought about everything. But they didn't like it. And then we said, and then we showed it to some people, and the people had a good time with it, and we said, oh, they liked it. So that's kind of who we made it for. I remember we used to talk about caddyshack a lot. And we were like, I don't know if I don't know if caddyshack got reviewed well or not. I never read a review in my life. We didn't think about that growing up. You know, I loved Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid because I went and saw it. I didn't read in the paper how it was shot and why it was a certain way and I didn't think about stuff like that. I just kind of went into the movies and enjoyed it and I had my own opinion. So I stopped reading reviews because I knew it's probably healthier than reading how bad you are over and over and stuff. So we just kind of said, let's just do our thing and stuck with that. Year after Billy Madison, as I mentioned, happy Gilmore X hockey player who breaks into and forever changes the world of professional golf in happy Gilmore.
THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"butch cassidy" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"I'm Ken ride out joined as always by the voice of combat sports, the great teddy Atlas. Teddy, how are you doing? Good, Ken. As always, you know, that's almost part of our regular kind of like Johnny concert show. Remember the Chinese cousins show he was so great with the sidekick sidekick Ed McMahon. I mean, they were terrific. They always had similar dialogs, some certain things that were consistent whenever they, whenever they started off the shelf, but as always, you're better than that as good as you. You know, that can always be my comeback. Not as good as you, but good. I'm blessed. Very good. You're on shelf island and joined a nice vacation in a beautiful setting, a beautiful home that would your family. And right away, I in all the fans could notice that you traveled jabara because you look well groomed, cut up, nice fresh cut and funny one for you there. I went over to greenport. You know, when you try to get a haircut on vacation, I said to the guy, just like cut it like a fade right here, just a little tight and it faded up and there were two young kids and I sat down and I like an 82 year old Bolivian guy comes in and I go how do you know he was Bolivia and I'm just because I said where are you from? He said Olivia. So I said, who's the best at cutting a fade here? 'cause anytime you go into a barbershop, it's like rolling the dice and the two young kids go, no, no, no, he's okay. Well, he cuts my hair. I look at the side. It's like a line, like almost like he just cut the bottom and let it. I looked at the one young kid and I go, buddy, come on. Look at this. And he's like, all right, come on sit down, and he goes, I got to make it tighter though. Next thing you know, I was like, did I ask for the Kim Jong il? What are you doing? And I was so flustered. So I'm stuck with this haircut until it grows out. They recognize who you are. No, call your laughing. Good thing? No, he didn't recognize me. Should have walked right out. Listen, when you say Bolivia, he reminds me of the movie, Butch Cassidy and his Sundance kid, remember they were rather banks all over. And they were finally trying to figure the future like their future was a long, obviously. But they were trying to dig like where are we going to go when we finished Robin this one? Bolivia. Bolivia, how'd you come up with that? I was looking at it. I was looking on the map Bolivia. That's the place we go. And they got unarmed banks there. So we always be good. We'll be fine. But you also ventured out a little bit on Saturday, I know. There was a big UFC caught on Long Island. That's right. Very highly anticipated. And great crowds sold out from what I believe I saw it was sold out. I watched it. I watched the main fights. And you were invited. You were given a media pass by the UFC and, you know, of course, I mean, why wouldn't they want you there? They were a little short on stop house this weekend. So obviously they reached out. They figured, okay, look, I'm just wondering if you have a job for the UFC after the weekend. If you're heading up for Dana White or modeling or something, I just hope you still can put a set time for this. Every week, and that you're not that you didn't obligate too much time to any new ventures that might have popped up your way. But tell us about Saturday because I think a lot of people would like to hear about I heard you didn't tell me yet, but you warned me that you had a little bit of a little bit of an adventure that's worth talking about. So I get there and shout out to Dave Lockett at the UFC. He's our guy. He's the head of PR over there. He arranges the guests, couldn't be a nicer guy. He actually looks a little like D.C. Daniel Cormier. I had never met him before. So I get there. I asked him, hey, can I get a media credential? He said, yep, I got you. You're on the list. And I had to submit a bunch of info or headshot a recent photo to put on the past. And I was reading on the Internet of people saying, oh, the UFC doesn't give media credentials to anyone. It's really hard to get it. So I was like, oh, yes. Now in my mind, I'm sitting press roe. But first of all, you're not you're not everyone. You're not everyone. Number one. That's true. And very happy they took good care of you because you representing our show. You're out there representing us. And I can't wait to hear this story. And how the fans must have been thrilled to see you there. I just wondered if you worked anyone's corner. But go ahead. The fans couldn't have been better. Of course, every single one. The first thing they say, where's teddy every time? Where's teddy? I'm like, teddy, not here today. Teddy's not here today. But I am. So I get there. I get there, and I get the credential, so it's kind of a laugh at my own expense. It says on the side of it, no floor. Now, I don't know what that means, but I can assume it means I don't have access to the press row. All the people. So I go up to the media room and it's like, you know, there's a bunch of people in there. I don't really recognize anybody. And the winning fighter comes into the media room after the fight, a couple of people there asked the same questions. And the TVs are on in this food. But you're up in the rafters. I mean, we're almost on the roof. We're almost watching through a skylight. So I'm watching and halfway through right as the main card slots. I look down, press world. There's like three people sitting there and there's probably a combinations for 50. And there's two rows, but no one's in the front row of the press row. Obviously there was saving room for you and positively entourage. So now I know that this probably means I don't have floor access, but I'm like, you know what? Let me just walk down and see what's cracking. Let me see what happens. I walked down, no one's died walked past the security. They look at me, look at the, come on in. So I just go and sit down right in the front. And there's a name tag in front of me of someone else who's clearly not there. The main card has started. But as I'm sitting there, I know I'm probably not supposed to be there and probably shouldn't sit down, but no one's there. There's like 5 people in press row. And but I can see them looking at me. As I sat down, I kind of gave someone like, hey, how are you doing like a courtesy? Hello, they just ignore me. And now in hindsight, they're probably looking like, who is this idiot sitting in jail blow seat? Like, doesn't he know the protocol? Of course I didn't, but they know who you are. I'm sorry. I'm assuming they did only because of the affiliation with you, but no one said anything. The kid from Long Island and he's fighting at one of Eric Nixon's guy. So after the fight, Eric mix exceeds me comes walking, hey, Ken, what's up? So a chitchat. But in my mind, I'm guessing the journalists are all impartial, they're not friends with these people. They don't have relationships like we do. So it's probably an oddity I'm assuming that the kids stopped and was talking to me. That Eric stopped and was talking to me. So I see people like talking and talking to security, so I'm like, they get ready to throw me out of here. So I get up and I just start strolling away and someone comes running over. Dave, who I had never met before. And grabs onto my pass and he's like, hey, let me just see a pass here. He's like, oh, Ken, it's me, Dave. And I was like, oh, what's up? So immediately, I was like, look at all these reports. All these reports of the ZenFone trader. And then, oh, it's Ken, hey, it's okay. It's okay, guys. To put away the tranquilizer guns, it's okay. Put away the cuffs. We've been writing these anonymous columns for 20 years and we're only in the second row. Who's this guy sitting in the front row? It was like that kind of thing. Like, who's this guy think he is. But Dave, when he came over, I was super apologized that Dave, I'm sorry if I jammed you up or if I broke any protocols. I know there was no one sitting in the air.

"Is asked, which woman has won the most Academy Awards in history, the answer is usually Catherine Hepburn, who won four Oscars, but that's not the correct answer. There is another woman who won twice as many as Hepburn. She wasn't an actress, she was a costume designer. Maybe the most famous costume designer of all time. She won 8 Oscars and was nominated an astounding 35 times. Her name was Edith, head. In 1924, a young Edith head saw a classified ad in the Los Angeles Times. It was a want ad looking for a sketch artist at Paramount Pictures. She applied and got the job, working as a costume sketch artist until 1927. 9 years later, her talent couldn't be denied and Edith had became the first woman promoted to head of design at paramount. From that moment on, she began to carve out her legacy, working on over 1100 films. In 1940 alone, she supervised the costumes for 47 major motion pictures. Edith head was one of the hardest working executives in Hollywood. At a time when there were hardly any female executives at all in the film industry. She learned how to watch and listen. She had high standards and was an exacting boss, but her track record is literally an encyclopedia of the best films of all time. Edith had dressed Grace Kelly in to catch a thief. Gloria Swanson in sunset boulevard. She worked on films such as white Christmas, Shane, double indemnity, witness for the prosecution, hud, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid, the birds, and breakfast at Tiffany's. Hitchcock hired her for 11 of his films, including vertigo and rear window. Edith head was a sartorial storyteller. Her costumes served the script. She made sure the actors felt heard while interpreting the director's vision. Her Oscars included such classics as Sabrina, Roman holiday, and all about eve. Her final Oscar was.

"Tell me about the timeline because I think many people certainly, many people of a certain age know that Paul Newman was deep commitment to being a humanitarian and using his platform. This is one way. He also was involved. I think you'll tell me in the hole in wall gang camps as well. Was that before or after he cooked up the salad dressing? Do you know? So Paul Newman was a Oscar winning actor. He was a winning race car driver. He was a social entrepreneur with the food business, Newman's own, and a philanthropist. I mean, he was and he was so many more things than that. When he started Newman's own, he just decided that children that were facing serious illness needed more joyful experiences to just be a kid. And so he and hotchner and hotchner's wife and Joanne dreamed up the hole in the wall gang camp based on the Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid story. And started a camp in Connecticut for seriously ill kids. And the whole gang camp is going strong..

"Son, I wouldn't necessarily call that as clean. I know, Butch Cassidy was kind of pissed about it after he heard his shoulder. My shine, he got he couldn't even raise his shoulder to celebrate a goal. He did end up playing Saturday. But yeah, either way biz, what would you like to take on either or both of them? I'm sorry, either hit of that. I usually don't like when guys roll off their check. It seemed like he was already engaged with another defender. So, yeah, he was pissed off when he got up. He was barking at the official. And did we find out what the significance of the injury is? Because afterward, I saw that the bees scored. He could barely raise his arm, looked he played the next game. Okay, so he did. All right. Did they lose or win Saturday? Maybe a little like AC joint stinger, but yeah, it looked like it was kind of half from behind too. I thought I thought it was a dirty play, but sometimes when, you know, your mark Sean, you play a certain way. You don't get those calls. They didn't even call two minute minor on that. Yeah, I was surprised that I didn't think it was worthy of a suspension, but definitely a penalty roughing boarding pick one. But yeah, I mean, he's not going to get many calls. Doesn't matter how good he is when he's always in the mix of shit, always chirping at refs, I'm sure that's exactly what Cassidy said he said. I wonder if the fact that was my son had a factor in that. And by the way, they beat Winnipeg three too sadly, but the other moment you just mentioned because my son coming off the I say think it was warm ups and I said he grabbed someone's cell phone. He just said, hey, what's up? What's going on? It was just some random family. Pull this fucking cell phone out of his hand made a video and ended up getting back to the kid who was over the moon about it. But again, this guy, you know, off the ice stuff personality stuff, this is what the league needs to do a lot more of because it just brings in so many more fans. So much more viral stuff, so. All right, I'll ask you one more time. Would you pay his parking ticket now? No, no. I mean, I mean fuck. Unless he's taking my spot maybe, but maybe a few bumps the franchise value up another hundred and a $100. Give him another month. I think my argument is making more and more sense by the minute that this guy does all these antics. I don't know how he balances doing all that and then staying focused to play. He is a wizard. Hell of a player. All right, let's see. We had a pretty special night in Seattle last Monday. You know, it was came out of tragic circumstances, but randon Adam. He was a teammate of the late Colby cave, played for the bruins and Edmonton organizations. And passed away suddenly and tragedy from a brain bleed, well, Colby's wife Emily had gifted Ryan a tie last time he passed through Edmonton that Colby had won to a game did not award to the game in Seattle that night that crazy enough Emily was at. He goes out, he gets the game time goal, scores in the shootout. And I was just, you know, like I said, one of these like hot woman stories that came out of a tragedy, but the fact that Emily was actually at the game that he scored out wearing his tie. Just a real special moment, he kind of brings it to the end of the eye. Yeah, Ryan Donato is an awesome kid, comes from a great family, situate, Massachusetts, and getting to know Colby when they were both a part of the bruins organization. They became really good friends. So it was heartbreaking for the whole hockey community. Let alone people who knew him and got the chance to play with him. So the fact that he was able to stay in touch with his wife and get that tie. It was no doubt no doubt he was scoring that night. I actually didn't know, I don't know. Did that news come up before the game or was it all postgame I'm guessing? Because, oh, that was a guaranteed bet for him to score. Had I known he was wearing his tie to the game. Yeah, all came out after the fact that, you know, and again, I don't know how often she goes to Seattle games, but the fact she happened to be there and that happened. It was just, like I said, just a really nice story that, you know, born out of something awful, everybody kind of appreciated having that. So you did a great job with the blog and without that, I wouldn't have even heard of that. So, yeah. Great work there. And it's sad, man. I mean, yeah, it's tough to write those once sometimes. Yes. You get lost in your best friend at such a young age and you know, and you know, yeah, it's like all these other friends she's made because of it and she kind of his legacy gets to live on because of it. It's cool. It's a cool moment. Well, said, buddy. Well said. All right, we're gonna move on to the Philadelphia fly is a buddy hazy. He's been poor bastard. Another surgery for him is going to be three to four weeks for a procedure to drain fluid from the adductor region of his hip. It's his third time he's been in surgery since the end of last season. Obviously, we're hoping he gets well. Let's see, he knew he was getting surgery. Ended up playing versus the island is that night 16, almost 17 minutes he played. That's a warrior. That's the warrior he is. The fly is no over 16 on shootouts this season after they went off for 9 and lost to the island as over two on penalty shots this year. It's been tough sledding for that squad..

An interesting result a two one winner at the gulfstream in the fourth and monmouth had just run basically rescheduled the run together but monmouth ran first. And then gulfstream that leaves four races rich the woodbine fourth the ellis park third the saratoga fourth and the monmouth seventh as the remaining semifinal races as well as for the console tournament not as big a priority obviously as establishing the ten players that are going to make up the final table. And let's get you up to speed on that group right now. The leader after last night. Justin the starry of course who made that late move to eclipse jose arias. We talked to jose after Racing and concluded. Yesterday i saw him earlier at. He said he really did not sleep. he's just couldn't sleep and he ended up just handicapping pretty much throughout the night and into the morning at right now. Mma starry maintains the lead. He actually has four We'll see if he used their official at monmouth so he may have used the race at gulfstream. otherwise he's going to use four optionals is remaining four. They get ten for the twenty two races. That have been run this morning and into early afternoon. Chris goodall has made a nice move and he has got five. He had five optionals left. Which means i have to assume. He played the gulfstream raised. It's not official yet and he'll play the next four so goodall actually rich and interestingly. He held his hand basically until there was literally. I tweeted about it. There were literally eleven races available left. And he had i think nine of his optionals remaining that is a plane strategy on his part and i i can't say it was a bad strategy because with the ability to look at the scoreboard. See what you need to get done and then have all those bullets. All those optionals left to play. I mean they really puts them in a power position because he knows whether he needs to reach out for a big cap horse or if he can just kinda grain to way if if things haven't been exploding on the board what's interesting. is that goodall. Who finished last night. Third then he had trickled down to ninth while others were firing away then he is now reasserted himself and his added fifty one dollars essentially to his total so he's sitting second. Justin starry three twelve. Chris goodall to ninety five jose arias who also has all his bullets remaining. He must have played the gulfstream fourth. And now he'll play the last four races at woodbine ellis saratoga and monmouth the biggest move of the day and i just tweeted about it before we went on the air paul. Coffey started the day in thirty fifth rich. With i believe one hundred in excuse me one hundred and hundred and eighty five. I wanna say one eighty five way. Downhillers wail down the list and he must have hit nearly everything he's played and he said some of the prices. We'll tell you about those in a minute. He's at two hundred seventy three dollars.

Oh God, just so many great all the president's men just fantastic writer. I've talked about them on other podcast before. But there's something to be said about, and again, I'll get to a reason why I'm talking about this in a second, but there's something to be said about writing scripts you believe in. Rather than what's the flavor of the day, all right? What's the thing that's driving people to theaters today? Maybe if you're that way, you will make a great picture after your tenth film. Maybe it's through that way, you'll fizzle out like the people who don't have talent. Maybe at that point, they'll start sending pornographic pictures in the mail because they just don't have anything to do because they're not really talents. But that to me is the best line in the history of Hollywood, written by the best screenwriter perhaps ever. Nobody knows anything.

"Dimensional wealth radio. I want to share that with you. If you're just joining us In the previous segment. Today, I've been talking about taxes and how people aren't too strongly consider a strategic rollout, not a rollover. Roll out getting the money rolled out of qualified accounts like IRAs and 41 case. Usually, I would recommend at least five years before retirement. S o that you could get the money out. The tax is over and done with sooner than later in today's lower tax brackets, but reposition the net after tax money into something that's gonna be tax free. From now on, Then, with a good accountant, you can strategize how you could maybe offset some or all of the tax by maybe resurrecting new deductions and so forth. So that's why I was talking about selecting a very good tax strategist. And so I've taught many CPS and tax attorneys with advanced C PE, continuing professional education and so forth. So they have to have several 100 hours 120 hours every two years or so. Now, folks, when we talk about taking money out of IRAs and four in one case, why Why do you want to do that sooner than later? It's because you're not accomplishing anything. When Congress is hard up for money. Where do they go to get the money? Okay if they need tax revenue Where do they go to get that money? I'm going to give you a hint. To the people who have the money. Okay, now. There are About 5000 people recorded that have scaled Mount Everest. Now. Some of them have done it multiple times. But 5000 human beings have actually successfully scaled Mount Everest. There's been the last statistic about 307 people who have died. In that attempt now. Do you think they died on the way up the mountain? Or On the way down the mountain. The vast majority died on the way down the mountain. Now you know, you could say, Well, they weren't thinking about it. They just They were just focused on hitting the top. See a lot of people in life. They focus on, you know for retirement. What are they doing to save for retirement? Let's see. Very few people will talk about. Well, what do you do at retirement? What do you do now that you're at the top, I remember climbing a pyramid and chips and needs in Mexico and the climbing up but was was not scary at all. But coming down. Oh, I had to turn around and crawl down. It was like coming down the mountains. And so Congress as it takes and robs people coming down the mountain sort of figure coming down the mountain of life, and that's the people who have the money. And it always reminds me of one of my favorite movies with Robert Redford and but well, Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. And if you remember that movie, you know they're robbing the banks and the Union Pacific Railroad here and you die. Each chairman of the and he starts to track him down. And so they take off to Bolivia, and they start robbing banks down there And then pretty soon they're getting on to him down there. They decided to go straight, and so they hired themselves out his payroll guards. And I'll never forget this scene because they're going down or up the mountain here to get the payroll and and their leader is ahead of him on the meal. And you know Butch and Sundance or you're talking to each other. I'll bet you the robbers were gonna be up there in the rocks on the right. No, I think they're gonna be in the bushes on the left. And the guy turned around, says morons. Have morons on my team. They don't rob you when you don't have the money. Don't worry about being robbed and we don't have the money. We're going down to get the gold. We're going down to get the money Worry because robbers don't rob you if you don't have the money, and here he was. Tutoring two robbers who had decided to go straight. Well, yeah, they don't rob people who don't have money. The government goes for tax revenue to the people who have the money. Okay, so that's the whole point here. So that's coming down the mountain of life, and that's when, frankly, a lot of retirees can least afford it. But that's why I warned people you've got to have a tax strategist, help you find the right advisors that could help you from attack strategy standpoint, because most people When they look back at the end of the day they go. I should have never taken Rmds. Why did I do that? I strung out the taxes and paid 45 times. Well, I I needed to pay if I would have got got the money out, and the tax is over and done with But people sort of go well. If you don't need the money, why take it out? Just keep it deferring. Well, they think that saving tax and it's not I can prove it to you. Mathematically you want to get the money out in the tax is over and done with Now. You don't need to spend that If you don't need it, you reposition. The after tax roll out money into something that's gonna be tax free from now on, And that will ultimately blossom is Mike Joyce.

Saturday Morning Update with Rick Fowler
What Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis means for the country
"Were always joined on Saturday morning by John Gizzi. He is the White House correspondent and chief political columnist of newsmax dot com and Newsmax TV, John. Good morning. Good morning, Rick. And what a night it wass. Well, obviously, we're following the latest developments on President Trump and his diagnosis with covert 19. What is the latest you're hearing on the president. The president is resting comfortably at the Walter Reed Hospital where yesterday he left the White House. And arrived at the hospital. I might and he left the White House in his usual business suit looking as he always does. Uh, this is not someone who has been felled by the virus. But simply has symptoms of the Corona virus, and he will rest there until doctors say he can come out. Which effectively scotches the debate. Scheduled for October. 15th. But it doesn't mean he's going to be in the hospital through the rest of the campaign, and we may see a newer and better Donald Trump emerged from Walter Reed. For now, all signs are that he's resting and that this is not anything that Americans should be nervous about. John. We know the Corona virus hits each individual differently, assuming the best for the president, where he quarantines for the 14 days and gets through this What is the impact on the campaign for the impact on the campaign is that right now there's an absentee candidate that the president cannot have is make America great again Rallies. He cannot debate He cannot issue pronouncements, although one as the impression after covering Donald Trump for the past four years that no hospital and no confinement Ooh! Ah hospital bed is going to keep him away from his tweeting. Uh, hey, certainly can campaign that way. And another thing. We have a long history in America of candidates who are hospitalized or injured who actually do well as their supporters carry on for them. When he made his first center base in 1948 Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson was laid up for a period with very brutal, Cole. His wife, Lady Bird and others served is very effective Speakers and he went on to win hard fought race. I know of a case of another candidate, Arch war who was elected governor of West Virginia after surviving a helicopter crash. So just because it candidate is hospitalized or unhealthy doesn't mean it's a foregone conclusion. He'll lose well, John. Obviously, we know the polarization across the country and the polarization in the media. And there will be a lot of talk about the 25th amendment, and I just wanted to get sort of a factual look. At the 25th amendment. So when people hear the pundits talking about it, they understand it. Alright, 25th amendment was passed. In the late 19 sixties. It is known as the Presidential Succession Amendment. Its functions are twofold. One Puts into law what had been an informal agreement between presidents and their vice presidents. For a long time before them. And that means when the president is incapacitated, say is when he goes under the knife. For surgery, He turns over the powers. Of his office to his number two who effectively becomes acting President Richard Nixon served his acting president after a heart attack. President Dwight Eisenhower, and after a mild stroke, the president suffered Similarly, when Lyndon Johnson had surgery, Hubert Humphrey was the acting president and Dido for George H. W. Bush. Under Ronald Reagan when he had cancer surgery in his second term. The other part of the amendment is that if the vice president succeeds to the presidency, he or she can then designate Vice president that the Senate must give its advice and consent to I might add that when a president is declared unable to continue in his office for health reasons, the 25th amendment can be invoked. By the vice president and his succession to the top job can be insured. Post debate. Polls are now being released Thursday morning, NBC News National Polling had Biden up 7.9 points over President Trump Real clear politics showing Biden with a 6.6 lead over Trump Fivethirtyeight national polling tracker gave Biden the 7.6 advantage. President didn't seem to gain any ground whatsoever in the debates. Possibly lost some ground. What's your analysis is, we move forward. First of all, I do believe that the polls accurately reflect The post debate. Momentum is with Joe Biden, and it has very little to do with the debate itself. But with the media's interpretation of how candidates Trump and Biden acquitted themselves on national television, and of course, the opinion off the punditocracy is almost unanimous. The president was ruled. He interrupted. He had no consistent thought. And Joe Biden was a gentleman. That is their opinion. Which is being repeated by a lot of people. There's two factors that leaves this reporter to say that these numbers might have flaws in them. The first is the hidden vote. There's a lot of people, certainly, as was the case in 2016, who just won't admit they're voting for Donald Trump. Obviously they do so when they're in the voting booth. The other is that Joe Biden right now, by being cool, is holding on and appearing a front runner. Did. Donald Trump loses the debate? It all depends on who you ask. Chuck Booth, commentator and conservative activists from Nevada said the president decided to use this format to speak directly. To his base of supporters and try and rally them to the polls. He compared the president's performance and his refusal to abide by Time outs to the scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when Butch is facing a much larger man and challenges him to a knife fight. And then says, but we have to go through the rules. The other man says there's no rules in a knife fight at which point which kicks him. And effectively weakens and subdues him. That's what the president's goal Wass with Joe Biden and to his base, he succeeded. So let's turn to the impact on the Senate and the Congress a lot of business to attend to, including the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We take pause for well wishes from Democrats. But as we can see in the Chuck Schumer tweet, it is a one sentence pause. And then we're back into politics. Here's what he said Friday night. We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for covert and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well, so that's the nicety. And here's the politics. It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with the hearing, and there was absolutely no good reason to do so. Well, I would just say that the distinguished minority leader of the Senate, Senator Schumer should look a little bit more. At the rules of the Senate as wrong is there is a quorum of senators in the committee. They could move along, particularly if chairman gavels in now what he's referring to are Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Both Judiciary Committee members and both presently incapacitated by the Corona virus. Both could easily recover in a short time. Remember the Judiciary Committee hearings on drugs, Parrots nomination don't begin until the 14th of Oct over. So any judgments about Senator Tillis or Senator Lee? Not being in the job in two weeks is a bit premature. That's the Supreme Court debate. Let's talk about the stimulus deal. New York Times Reporting. Speaker Pelosi said that the president's positive Corona virus test could change the dynamic and produce a Nagre mint on additional pandemic relief. But a compromise remains elusive. The gist of it from Speaker Pelosi is that now the Republicans will take Corona virus more seriously. Well, where do we
Stuff To Blow Your Mind
Overconfidence: The Icarus Paradox
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb. And I'm Joe McCormick and we're back with part two of our discussion of overconfidence. That's right If you did not listen to the previous episode do go back and listen to that episode. Because we're GONNA lay the groundwork we're going to discuss overconfidence. Hubris and mythology in human histories. And then get into the psychology of it and what various psychological studies have revealed and continue to reveal about the nature of overconfidence. And how we can. Divide this sort of amorphous concept of overconfidence out into categories that can be more easily studied and understood. That's right now in the last episode one of the main things we talked about was this huge new review of the scientific literature on something known as the better than average effect. Which is the tendency for people to rate themselves as better than average with respect to their peers on all kinds of stuff One classic example is that something like ninety. Three percent of people think they are a better than average driver. And so if you're if you're listening to this as you drive is back on the road and make sure you use the turn signals principle. Stay save lives turn signals. Let other drivers and the districts. No what you intend to do. Even if you think you're a great driver drive like your less good than you are and it will make you a better driver drive like you can't see all the other cars and around you because sometimes you cannot drive like you're driving a murder weapon because potentially you are. It's quite true. Are Now one of the things we talked about it in the last episode was A paper from two thousand seventeen by dawn Amorin Derek. Shots called the three faces of overconfidence which Which actually broke. Overconfidence down into three distinct categories of of bias or misperception and And we talked about those a little bit last time. We're going to be exploring more of what that paper had to say. And it's critiques of overconfidence. Research specifically with reference. To these three types of overconfidence and has a brief refresher. The three types are overestimation over placement and over precision overestimation is thinking that you're better than you are and this would be with reference to some kind of You know objective measure out in the world so if you think you are taller than you are if you think that you can jump higher than you can if you think that you would get a better score on a test than you actually could. That's overestimation the next one over placement is similar but instead it's comparing yourself with other people so the better than average effect would be an example of over placement. It's you know thinking you are better than average compared to your peers at some task or it would be thinking that you know that you work harder than other people or thinking that you are smarter than other people of course with the. If it's overconfidence. Meaning that those are not actually accurate assessments and then finally the other one would be over precision which is being too sure that you know the truth Again this this might be called EPIs- stomach over-confidence it's just being too certain that your beliefs are correct now to get into more and chances paper from two thousand seventeen one of the questions that they address. What actually drives some of these different Effects as as they are manifested so they they start with overestimation what causes us to say think we would get a better score on a test to than we do or to think we have more money in the bank than we do a common answer that people give to this is the idea of wishful thinking. It would feel good if this were true. Therefore I believe it right the authors don't think that this Explanation is very plausible and they offer several problems with it and we can interrogate these. Maybe disagree with them as we go on but first of all they say you know self delusion is demonstrably maladaptive for example a tendency toward wishful thinking about the safety of kissing sharks. So with tongue is is not a trait that the environment will tend to select for people overconfident about their academic abilities. We'll tend not to study and actually do worse people who believe themselves invulnerable. We'll take risks that sometimes get them killed. This might seem obvious but there is actually plenty of research on this. I mean people who are over confident about their abilities. Do face a lot of downsides when those abilities are put to the test right. Yeah I mean one example from literature that comes to mind is that of Macbeth who believes himself protected by prophecy? And of course snuffs it exactly but then again I think okay so it is true that these people will face a Lotta downside but then again people do engage in self destructive self deluded behavior all the time. This is a common feature of human life. Yeah I mean for instance. We were just recently talking about Sepo Affect Our our movie episode. We're talking about the fly and a about the possibility that the placebo effect is is basically due to You know this innate tendency toward self delusion that may very. Well be adaptive in at least in this scenario where yeah we we benefit from being able to believe something is going to work and And experiencing at least a small physical benefit from it like a small cured of benefit from it. And then you know I also can't help but think that you know self-delusion entails far more than just over-confidence it also entails. All manner of paranoia and there is a strong case for the adaptive nature of say making type one error in cognition a false positive the belief that the Russell in the tall grass is that of a tiger. When it's not because of you make the type to air. You're more likely to be eaten by the Tiger. Right right yeah. Having accurate information about the world is actually very useful and having inaccurate information can kill you. Yeah but but I'm not so much you know trying to disagree with the maladaptive Self-delusion argument That we mentioned earlier but but rather you know to point out. The human experiences is rife with self delusion. So might a dash of overconfidence. Even in the form of overestimation serve do balance out this alchemy of of our perception of reality for example. Have a singer in granted cariocas very low stakes right but it could involve social embarrassment which you could fear would lead to ostracism. And that's actually one of the most powerful negative motivators human behavior right but again curiosity is also one of these things. Where like sometimes? It's cool to do it badly. So this is a perfect example. But so you have a carrier. Karaoke singer then imbibe in a little liquid courage before taking the microphone as most Kariuki participants are are want to do but yeah they they get a little liquid courage because they know they don't have the greatest voice in the world and then they feel a little awkward getting up there but but they they know that a little bit of booze induced. Overconfidence might help matters. I think you're exactly right there and this is funny to start here because I think while the authors make tons of good points this is one of the ones they make that I might disagree with the most. I think that there are antagonist adaptations in human behavior. One pressure might favor having an accurate picture of the world. Assessing things in a clear and accurate way while across pressure favor self-deception especially self-deception in the form of overconfidence. For example. You might be more likely to survive if you have accurate assessments of your own abilities but you might be more likely to take big risks with potentially big rewards if you overestimate your abilities Or Self Delusional. Overconfidence could be adaptive. Because it helps us persuade or even deceive other people about are worth. Yeah old ultimately you have to believe in yourself you know other people are not going to believe in you for you right. I mean we. We talked in the last episode about how. It's probably not a coincidence that you really often notice overconfidence in people who occupy high status leadership roles. Right how did they get there? I mean it's not hard to imagine.
