"christopher ben" Discussed on Marketing Over Coffee

"Good Morning Welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm John Wall Christopher Ben and I. Don't even know where to start. Where do we start? It's just I. had this whole insane story that I just refuse to go into about my old neighbors who were being allegedly? An ebay security team for a year. Just like this insane strikes. I'll just throw to that because. That's totally crazy. Things are crazy. Crazy Times ten. But you know the thing. I will say about this from a marketing perspective. Where was the Social Media Monitoring Team Right? Where was the the Alex? Team where the the folks at Ebay who you should have seen because it was not. Something that was kept coat totally quiet this. There's there's been content about this. What happened in its complete failure in your marketing analytics governance where nobody's watching, the someone should have gone through the mentions of the brand and stuff. That doesn't look. We normally don't send bloody pig masks to people. And that's the thing that amazes me. There is just like this line where your company becomes so big that you have these. Black OPS teams. It's like a security blacks OPS team within your own company. You know because you're so big. So. Yeah, just totally nuts and yeah I'm crazy, but it speaks to the need that you absolutely should have human review, and you should be having somebody in your Pr. Your comms team somebody looking at the social media mentions looking at more than just like the line graph of you know. How many mentions you got that day? Actually sampling the data looking in there because you should be able to see. That article looks like it could be a problem. One of the Challenges Crisis Comms is that like for regular social media monitoring pr you can rely line chart of number of mentions went up because you're looking at data and the aggregate when you're doing crisis communications, you have to be looking at every single article because you don't know when the next spark is going to become the next bonfire, so somebody's gotta be reviewing stuff that the software would say hey, this for flagging this even just for questionable with what to do with it, and clearly that was not happening. Yeah, yeah, and so probably best practice would be. You got to get all hands. Anybody that can generate content and understands the company is going to have to transition to watching the feeds during that crisis positions that make sense exactly, and and you need a specialist software for that. Because a lot of social media monitoring tools just kind of like big batch stuff. There's no anomaly tracking in real time in most software packages. So it's important that if a crisis is going to be a problem for your brand, or you see it being a problem, you need to have that real time feed. It should look kind of like you know. The Matrix low at all the walls, going by and things, but without it you will get burned. Yeah, there's just so much that you have to dig into like you said. You have no idea what's coming next and when it will flare up. You had Boston dynamics to selling their robot for seventy five grand. You can go ahead and buy yourself one of these things I don't know. What do you think is? Has the time come for robots I mean there's they actually show in one of the marketing bids it doing patient screening, it can do temperature scan hit people's foreheads, and you don't have staff moving through the office, so it seems like a great application but I don't know what's your overall? Take on the robot revolution. It's an incredible piece of machinery now in the terms of service. If you read it on, the ordering page does say you may not. Use Robots to intimidate or harm people or other animals, and your warranty will be void, and we will revoke permission to use the robot. If you do these things so they they do have the remote kill switch if you start doing stuff that. Should be doing with it that said I want to figure out how much it actually can carry. Because that's totally the kind of thing that you would put a saddle ought and just ride around. Well. This is another thing I've said this before on. The show is that I think they consciously went with creating dog size robot. Because there's no reason they couldn't do one. That's five times the size, except for the fact that would scare the daylights out of everybody on Earth to see this larger than a cow thing barreling down at them. As a side Gig you have a horseriding farm. Wouldn't the ROBOT BE? Great is like the trainer to learn how to ride horse because you know it. You're no danger of getting bucked off because the robot literally will not do that. That is a heck of a question. We could just make a horse suit for one of those, and yes, it would totally behavior. We wouldn't. Even you know. The ring could be fixed. The thing would stay within a foot in every direction wouldn't go to the other big win. I was saying that for here's throwing. Hey, this is the time of year where they're getting six or seven hay wagons a month that need to be the he needs to be loaded and thrown up into the upper barnes and yeah, having a robot do that with just make all that go away instantly. Nobody likes to do that work. At the AG. It's not like we have a line of employees wanting to do it either it's it's quite a struggle,

"christopher ben" Discussed on Unchained

"To my conversation with Amanda Fabiano and Christopher Ben Dixon so Amanda to go into this a little bit where you talked about. How Fidelity began mining bitcoin in two thousand fourteen? But I was curious. Why was that one of the first things that fidelity tried to do with cryptocurrency mining? That's like a pretty unusual step for a financial institution. Yeah so that's a really great question in. It is interesting project that we worked on pretty early on. So you know fidelity right now cares about bitcoin mining for a few reasons in it's important to stress that our operation has always been researched. I but learning about how this underlying bitcoin mining networks. We think is essential when you're trying to do things like building. Businesses on top of it right or investing in fickling companies and so mining is critical to this ecosystem. So you know. It's critical that we understand mining in being plugged in is important. We don't just mean like physically plugging in the machines more understanding this opaque space that secures the network. So that's what we aim to do with that experiment. We have a group in F. -cat called the blockchain incubator and we do a lot of different experiments with bitcoin. In this was one of many. And what does fidelity do with Bitcoin minds absolutely? We don't disclose any of that information. I'm sorry I it's it's it's all proprietary information APP so we can't talk about that sadly but It it does allow us to. I think the thing that matters most is it allows us to understand how this all works right versus like the profit that we make off of it Being very secretive. It's like maybe you guys are hanging out with associated. Akimoto one can dream and I also wanted as an this is going to take us down a slightly. You know a slight tangent but I was also curious. Fidelity has also mind ether. When did you guys are doing that in? Do you still do that. And if so what would you say is different about mining either versus Bitcoin? Yes so we. We explore all different types of projects and products rate and when we were mining bitcoin. We said Hey we have some service that could also mind either so we explored that for a little bit We have about forty five different. Poc's that we've put on a shelf inside like maybe this is something that will explore later. But it just doesn't make sense right now so we could look back into the ether mining. But right now what I focus on is is mining bitcoin four fidelity and was that just because of the kind of specific characteristics of Bitcoin. Doodoo its monetary policy or did it have something to do with the actual mining of the cryptocurrency itself. I think it's a little broader than that for every project that we bring in the door Which is a lot. We have a lot of ideas. We kind of have to get rid of one project right so because something doesn't make sense for us to work on right now doesn't mean that it doesn't make sense for everyone or it doesn't make sense to re pick that up in the future so basically we just had to shift what we wanted to do. Excuse me And you know we just that was something that we didn't pursue at the time but it could potentially come back. Never know and Can you fill out? What the other initiatives are that fidelity is working on. Obviously I know you guys have fidelity digital assets which does custody you also have trading for institutional investors. Can you just sort of fill everything going on under the shore? So you know we're a large company is often some confusion on the different names right initiatives within the fidelity walls so there's like three main areas so this fidelity center for Applied Technology the group that I work on there's fidelity digital assets and the Avon ventures so we covered what Fidel what cat does But fairly digital assets we also covered that a little bit You know the interesting story here. Is the research group in Africa? You know we build and test these different ideas and when we started mining. I mentioned this to this. Like how do we custody? This asset question right in so that led to US exploring how you know how custody works and that service rate blossomed into what is now is fidelity digital assets in fidelity digital assets is our commercialized business. Unit building projects for institutions. Who WANT EXPOSURE TO BITCOIN? And then I also mentioned Avon ventures So we have an affiliated venture funds and that focuses on the crypto landscape and investing in early stage crypto companies and. Now let's turn. Christopher can you give background on what coin shares does and Wyatt regularly publishes these extensive bitcoin mining reports sure the digital asset manager and we Our businesses to offer customers of wide range of investment products are all related to the Of Industry so we have a suite of eight passive extreme trigger trackers for bitcoin ether extra Paean coin The trade on the Nasdaq in Stockholm and Nordic growth market and burst stood guard. We also have some past products You know one of them being a Malcolm's Fund and we recently launched a physically backed gold token so the the reason we were into bitcoin mining is part of our research effort You know we we believe that education is a huge open gap that needs to be further filled in the space. We believe that if investors are fully informed they will come to the right decisions on their own without having to be influenced by others. So this is just part of our Comprehensive effort to to track everything that But concerns the the bitcoin space and the supply side of the equation. There is extremely important. So that's basically why. Why in there an so at this point in Bitcoin history as we've been talking about where at this inflection point of the third having and I imagine you could look at each period of bitcoins history in between the happenings and kind of put a narrative on how bitcoin developed during that period. And so I wondered know for this phase. What you to feel needs to happen in Bitcoin to kind of further promote its adoption of a few different things In some things that are already happening For example the the rise of proper institutional level custody like Amanda Moving at Fidelity is a huge thing. I think one of the other things that that needs to happen is the PL- proliferation of financial products for minors. Minors are currently unable to fully hedge their production. The way that normal commodities producers can which again or hinders the flow of capital into this whole space. So I mean. Those are some of the things that that I hope can happen if I think that if we if we do get proper hedging products for minors. There we can. We can dampen the the volatility of the market a little bit by a getting some more certainty on on part of miners as to what their incomes are going to be over time which which will allow for professionalization of the sector in Ukraine says a lot of momentum in that space right now right with several companies designing those financial products to help miners reduce their risk. So you know like Chris was saying with the network cash rate how it fluctuates rate. Like we've been talking about all day. Miners have exposure to these swings. Have difficulty adjustments resulting in lower than expected? Bitcoin return from their mining operation. So things like derivatives with difficulty swap can be used to hedge against this risk. It's for potential listeners. Who are not quite familiar with with why that's important. I mean if you're a normal commodities producer like oil producer. You have a you have a really good idea of how many barrels you're gonNA pump out of the ground over a certain time If your bitcoin minor end at you know as an oil producer you can. You can hedge by selling the production forward using a deliverable futures contracts. If you're a bitcoin minor you don't have that luxury right now. Because you don't actually know how many points are gonNA produce so and that is because of the difficulty you know how much hash rate you're gonNA produce over certain time but without having some way to hedge your exposure to the difficulty. You don't actually know how many coins that hush rate is gonNa Produce and that's a problem. Yeah there's a lot of things that you don't know in bitcoin mining and two of the biggest one being the price of bit claim and the The rate of pass rate so. It's fun these things. These future products I cash rate derivatives would be super helpful for minors. So out that risk. How does that work like find a minor? We just walk me through the steps of how it is that a hash rate derivative helps me you know hedge my risk when it comes to mining. Yes so if a minor a minor would be long difficulty in the contract so the minor receives a payout in Bitcoin if the difficulty increases more than expected so it would make up for the lower than expected bitcoin revenue from the mining operation. Oh I see so. Every mining operation sets up with a certain set of assumptions for where the price of difficulty will be in the future But having access to these types of derivatives would allow them to protect themselves if you know the difficulty increases by by more than a what they thought it would and what is the cost of purchasing something like that. Is it nominal so right now? It's it has a long ago. This is I think very beginning stages of this type of product being delivered. Sorry team has been exploring some of these contracts and just their structures overall and we've even conducted some paper trades which has been an interesting learning experience for us but ultimately I think there's just a long way to go to figure out exactly how these work your pricing is a big open question there and so most of the most of the current products that are out there are have been OTC in bilateral for the most part and they rarely extend past one single difficulty period and for these products to be fully functional in terms of what the miners need. They would have to have a much longer range than that. So pricing is a big big open question here and I don't think anyone has to answer yet another really interesting products that is coming out that we seize on like structures so this is allowing exposure to bitcoin mining without some of the operational headaches. So if you could mine. Bitcoin for a lower cost than you can buy it on the open market. And you take on this long. Bitcoin mentality funds in alternative. Diversify your exposure to bitcoin. Because with the right operational setup you can mine bitcoin at a discount rate. So how does that work? So it's it's similar to like traditional fund so say if an investor invest money into you know the type of operation a give money to the operation and then they would just get out bitcoin or US dollar in the end depending on how it's set up so we've seen some companies exploring this type of structure which should be really interesting Some of our reach has also backed up that there is institutional demand for this for just generally not funds but just generally structuring products around bitcoin mining so in two thousand nineteen and again in two thousand twenty we held a survey for institutional customers and we asked them if they would be interested..

Now with More VR!

"Good morning walk into marketing over coffee on John Wall. I'm Christopher Ben and we are back. It's been a while. We had both David Merman Scott and Mike for many chats so we've had a bunch of stuff going on over the past couple wasted finally January in full swing getting back in action here. How did the rest of the holiday wrap up for for you sir as funny it's like it's now you know as a record us twenty second of January because the holidays literally were ages ago so a strong and a lot going on? Yeah does is crazy. I think the one big holiday takeaway was I grabbed the oculus quest to the the wire free headset. It's a fascinating experience the ability to work walk around three six degrees of freedom running into obstacles in your home by really fantastic. It's I would say it's the first viable really viable true. VR solution because you're not tied to a computer. You're not GonNa you know Yankee computer off the desk with the wires wires and stuff like that but the quality is better than the smartphone in a weird little holder on your head and The entertainment and the what you can do in it is pretty amazing with controllers. Controller's stuff a favourite. So far is a poem called tilt brush by Google which allows you to draw and paint in three dimensions so you are innocent environment and you can literally really create sculptures and light and fire and all sorts of really cool stuff. So that's been a very interesting change. How you think about creating media when me he is in three dimensions and you can move around it one of the first questions though so you touched upon. It is all the stuff that I've used today. Is You know slapping a smartphone into do you know at least better than cardboard I have a rigged that I can adjust all the focus point so I can actually see it which is kind of critical but is the video way better than that phone solution. it's definitely better One of the things that this comes with is Three short stories in the Star Wars universe APP called vader immortal. You know there's a lightsaber dough Jordan. Wouldn't and the opening sequence. Has You flying over the planet most Afar and you it literally feels like you are inside of a star wars movie. It's got all the you know the sets and the decor and the effects that you used to end it's it's really good example of totally immersive storytelling. It will be interesting to see how the technology develops over the next ten years. I was Doing a spot on the immediate release. podcast they're asking what technologies are keeping an eye out for the next decade and VR's one of them because as the real world becomes is less and less appealing with climate change and natural disasters and food shortages and things over the next decade having virtual worlds where there's no penalty for the building a hundred stories skyscraper just easiest building a Hut L. Microsoft style world. So the idea that you'll spend more and more time in places this including places you can't even go. There's one happen here which is essentially uses Google Street view. And you can just kind of walk around any place on the planet for some places as you know like Venice Nielsen. Coastal cities for future. Generations this may be the only way they ever get to see those things because they'll be underwater. Yes thanks now. How about for the audio for it to does it have ear buds? That go with it. Or how does that a war. It has a a our style speakers like you try. Those bows sunglasses awhile back and it's the same style style speaker but there is a three point five Jack if you want to Jack in wired headphones but and so it stereo though. It's not any kind of surround audio or anything like that. Standard a standard stereo. But like I said it's been a pretty expensive. The apathy spend the most time in his beat sabre. Just because it's like you know it's it's like Atar hero but with light sabers. You really can't be that. Yeah that one seems to be kind of the first game that's getting some real. Traction and people are jumping on board with. It's time for a refresh on that too. Because the last time I checked out there was a a Three Sixty camera that was in the four hundred dollar range that was kind of people. Were expecting to be the cutting edge but it was still doing going through some hardware upgrades. The software fort was still being tweet. It does it goes so we should look back on that and kind of talk about where to go next with that and if you should start shooting stuff yeah pretty much anybody. That's doing anything outdoors or with any kind of real world. Experience should be doing some testing of that video to get a feel for how that works into start putting some test content together because yet so much more engaging than just straight video. There's no doubt about that. Yeah Certainly if you're a public speaker you should be shooting in. Three sixty should have three sixty camera because what it allows you to do is replay your talk and then watched watch the audience as you're talking you can see like what points in your talk hit. What did you know The slides that people are paying attention to sovereigns on their phone like you. You'll be able able to see the audience in real time as your speaking on stages right now you have to do is to camera rig to do that but this this lets you. Don't really check the whole room and see what's going on. Yeah that's an interesting point to end thoughts about that. You can't get the real time feedback like to camera. Shoot all the time and not with one box you gotTa love that so God we had an interesting piece. You're actually talking about death of the data scientist and while citizen data scientists which was a term that we have heard a lot and we don't hear as much which I'd be. Some people are still running with it. But it's I think it's perhaps left the buzz face and then I have a link to an article talking about eighty percent of marketers giving up on personalization because the tools they it don't work and are moving on so kind of. Where is this going? And what are you thinking about this. So thinking about personalization. personalization is important one. I wish attack attack about one first. personalization requires a really good clean data and a lot of it to do other than like Hello F name right and most marketers. Don't have that data. I mean in our day to day work when working with customers like you look and they're like well. This is not going so well. It's a whole bunch of stuff that's missing it's contaminated and so it's not a surprise to me that personalization really has not gone very well for for anybody and that speaks to you. Know this big issue of you know the citizen. Data scientists and fundamentally data. Science is for jobs in one right. It's so you have to have domain expertise. You have to have business savvy you have to have technical capabilities. Coding a primarily after have mathematical statistical capabilities Linear Algebra Algebra. Now four jobs for the price of one. No wonder that there are so few of these folks in existence. And the idea that you know. There's this army of of people out there. Who if they just had the right software could do this on their own is kinda silly? It's like expecting. There's an army of gourmet chefs out there who are just waiting for their protest. Excellent tapped as long as you. Just give him a frying Pan Right. it's not really how that works as the you can give someone the best kitchen. You all the stainless steel appliances and everything and they'll still gonNA find a way to burn water so I think a lot of what marketers and business people are realizing housing is that it turns out using data wells really really hard. And there's a reason why you're paying premium for the people to do these things. Now what's likely to happen in the next few years of course is machines taking on more of at least the grunt work and these things to get to your answers faster but at the end of the day it's still is going to require a human behind the wheel as it were to understand what to do self driving cars really good example. The car can't drive itself self even today. You know a a tesla can't drive itself but it's still need you to tell you where we're at ten is supposed to go but it's not going to say. Hey why don't I just drive and take your wherever averaging now you still have to put in destinations in order for it to do the driving. The same thing is true with data science. You still need to know where you're going no matter how good the tools are.

"christopher ben" Discussed on CRYPTO 101

"New York Grid and the New York Grid is not yet one hundred percent clean and so what apple for example does is it builds its own solar power plants it builds its own wind farms to generate as much as possible clean energy energy to offset the the dirty energy that its using and then for a portion of what it does it buys a renewable energy credit got it so in offset if you will from a somebody else's project solar project for example. That's generating nineteen energy to offset whatever is left that it cannot offset direction so we're real quick. Let me let me just interrupt just one sec just to clarify so it's basically like there's credits and debits and you're using this distributed ledger to just kind of track credits in debits and those those things are energy credits energy debits right is that kind of what it's like exactly and that market off credits historically has been a paper market what when you then use the blockchain to power that market what happens is you take out the central any central authority basically like a government agency or private organization to everything you think that's to do with the certification and verification of that credit. US therefore and by by generating them via a token system you start creating them storing them and trading them in ultimately burning them to generate that credit on the blockchain that means you've got suddenly was a blockchain a global system which king which is transparent which has integrity and is not subject to interference interference by anybody to cheat in effect so let me get this straight. Let's say here crypto one. We were generating one hundred rid megawatts of electricity through our microphones for some reason could we're blasting music all night unreasonable lot of electricity to offset that like here. My a studio were plugged into the grid. Maybe we would then put another farm somewhere generating solar and wind to generate one hundred megawatts to watch of clean energy to offset it and then that credit would be stored on a blockchain. We would store the hundred megawatts. We're putting through the grit it on the blockchain and then say okay. We're using net zero energy. Is that a kind of what they're doing. Yes yes and if I can just modify the example slightly please you might build a ninety megawatts solar power plant instead of a hundred and so for ninety ninety out of the hundred you've got a direct effectively offset of the dirty energy or using against the keene energy that you're creating but then for the extract struck ten megawatt you might buy a certificate from somebody else old through a token to offset that rump that's left oft because for some reason you can't build a solar power plant directly to power your building. I see okay that makes sense. I get it now so I was doing a little bit of research on this before we got a chance to speak with you and I found there's dozens of renewable energy. The and carbon emissions marketplace's out there. It sounds like this is a really hot idea. What is the industry landscape looked like and emerging market and are there enough participants Pinson this movement to really keep it going. I completely agree with you when you look under the hood so to speak what you see by our count is that there are some one hundred ninety blockchain and energy companies and almost half a billion dollars today invested in these companies now people don't know many of them because many of them have chosen not to do ice fios or similar public type capital raisings by they do everything or rather we as an industry are taking the blockchain and are experimenting with using it across number one peer to peer power trading and and micro grids payment systems number to the management of the grid as well platform applications as well as financing applications applications so the blockchain is really being experimented with across a very wide area in the energy space in one hundred ninety companies is along and I think our sense is that people are starting these companies as you all the time yeah and I also think that like we just had jack sampling on the show from tenement from Cosmos Network and they're building inner blockchain communication stuff so what I think is really cool. Is that when you have all these one hundred ninety silo. D- companies right now essentially but once once inner blockchain communication becomes really prevalent you can have all of these decentralised power grids all connected and transferring data back and forth to one another and it's you know it's GonNa. It's GonNa really change the world so let's talk a little bit more about a pizza mind and I are big fans of Bitcoin which gets a lot of flack from the people that are talking about climate change and the people that are talking about you know. It just uses too much energy so I've got a lot of stats here. I kind of want to paint a picture. What's going on. let me also give a lot of credit to the coin shares report so if you just go to medium dot com slash coin shares you can find their report and and I want to give credit to Christopher Ben Dixon who did a lottery search so so my first question to you before I get into these stats I just Kinda WanNa. Take your temperature temperature. Excuse the Pun is like what's your take on Bitcoin mine in the energy consumption that proof of work chains well. I got strong objections to criticisms off the energy footprint footprint of bitcoin mining. That's my temperature. That is awesome because I did not expect that answer. I thought you were gonNA say like fuck. bitcoin mining. It's ruining the world and stuff but I'm glad that you have a good opinion or similar opinion. I should say and I agree with him. Please explain explain what you mean. Well listen. I have problems with criticisms of the energy footprint of bitcoin mining on so many levels so first of all. Why are we picking on Bitcoin bitcoin miners. I mean what's wrong with wile aren't we picking on people using their phones say or people using their TV's or people using their air conditioning conditioning you know and at the the reason we're picking on the bitcoin miners specifically is part of the reason why like you know there seems to be a threads out there that just don't like the blockchain decentralization crowds in general general I and so you kind of attack this particular bid but meanwhile the energy footprint of phones and cars and air conditioning and building and all that a free pass. That's on one level on another level. The the solution to the a issue around bitcoin mining is really very simple. If we were powered one hundred percent by renewable-energy then there wouldn't be an issue in other words bitcoin mining would also be powered on absent with renewable energy and so there's not a problem and finally you even even if they have a problem today people like us at renewable are providing a token which they can buy and that would offset all their energy use and if I if I could just one more point on that a lot of the bitcoin mining occurs in China and China is not actually what it scenes I think from faraway China today is the number one solar power market worldwide number one wind power market worldwide number one manufacturer of solar fans number one manufacturer off off winter mine's number one electric mobility markets worldwide so the Chinese are doing all they can and you cannot say that about many other countries to shift to renewable energy but of course there's one point six million of them and it's difficult but at least they are giving it a very strong we'll go and they are also watching the energy footprint of the bitcoin nights and so. I hope I just summarize there might might issues uh on on multiple levels with criticizing bitcoin lining energy footprints that was very well said and I'll just add one more point to it. It's in any cryptocurrency minor's best interest to be as most efficient as possible so many of these bitcoin mining warehouses especially outside of China are located located in very cold climates where they don't have to pay air conditioning costs because the natural climate provides the cooling and there are also hooking up to solar and even hydro electric energy to generally secure the bitcoin chain out of like senator basically so there's a lot of and the reinvesting testing their provinces to more and more renewable energy as well so really it's one hand holding the other absolutely and if you if you if you are a bitcoin minor and and you want to do something about your energy footprint than come to renew M..

So if you drive off the road because of James, I apologize, but thanks for keeping a lot here on CBS sports radio. I thought you guys are star when be kicked when he's a guest on his own show. And that's what we have here right now as Gelb is here on this Gelb show with me morass hosting for gal. Do I get paid for this? By the way, you're gonna talk to turn off about that. So that's. Coming up next with Robin Lundberg. So you actually me on Twitter earlier because you woke up first thing, you heard was that caller before comparing to David Letterman, and do you do, you know, what the context behind this whole thing was something about a liner something, I'm assuming all right? So Zack which by the way. Let me just say. Okay. I can't believe by the way. All right that it's finally week seventeen the National Football League. Don't tell me you're one of those guys, please. I may have said that once or twice before. And then also this'll be. In two thousand eighteen that you'll be filling in for me as well. Yeah, he see he sitting all those things that irk me. You know, what I'm talking about those people the last time for this is the last cell field bathroom last Southfield do here. It's ridiculous. Exactly. Last time. I got to hear James is awful rejoinders in the new year, which is grenade. You see what I work with dopes while Benz, not as much a dope. It's follow. And then when you change for a Brian McKean. It's really you're not getting the cream and a crowd, by the way, I came to your defense the other night, right? Mckeon was attacking you left and right, which I don't understand so Brian McKean for those of you who probably don't care here. On college football Sally is a backup producer Fillon host or not a fill in host Phil in producer. And I treat the kid like cold and every time turn around your tweeden about him knocking me, I don't understand was Kelaniya. And here's my thing. If you a short person like mckeon, you're not allowed to go. Make a big joke to someone like yourself. While gets to me a little man problem big on big crime. I just don't do it look me, and you can defend the big is mean you can get into jello. Wrestling match people would watch people might throw up, but people would watch would be. Anyway is anyway, this is your show. It's been awesome to fill in for you. I consider. No, I've had a great time. Great data beyond you know. What is it called full playoffs? Three weeks seventy in the NFL, but GRA simple history this liner before. And just play it. He's glad you're still here. I know back to the guilt show. What are we doing? You're glad he's still here. Right. The liners. Shop and do the show. All right. Well, here's the big. So now you've been doing this show for about a year. Yeah. Correct. I can't believe by the way, it's been a year. Almost this guy. This guy you for two thousand eighteen promise me this. Okay. Go for nineteen right? What year are we we're in two thousand and I can't believe it's the end. It's thousand eight two thousand nineteen is coming which is white some miners get to make the show your own. I just noticed from work with DA not any of our liners or anything like somebody else's rape for us. It's something that DA probably or me is come up with our two things. First time I've ever tried to compose a liner here. I send it to Ben doing Sunday stocks, and Ben he wrote this whole you can't wear this can't wear it that way. So I said, you know, what I'm not dealing with Ben because it's like going to the dentist number two. I asked these guys to do some show clips coming back from break. Christopher went on about a nice month in a row string of show liners on the show. And then they gotta lazy and I understand why. Wow. The reasoning. Got a little lazy is because his football team is so miserable. He just shuts down with everything else. Interesting. So Ben shooting down you're writing for new liners and GRA Sappho. Just not one of them together. Okay. So I guess my cat point counterpoint here. Obviously, there's some dissension in the Zach Gelb locker room here that seems very clear to me as an outsider seems like a locker room problem. I don't know if there's no doubt Beckham here to fix it. But I would just tell you sack. Look just writing me so Ben's approve who cares. What he thinks. He's busy about shopping ShopRite stock could show he needs it. No, he doesn't. Poorly written. I love Zack which liner the Sunday Star. That was terrible. No was what was terrible about it. Doc is dooming and whose stock is. Cheesy cheesy disagree? So hold on. So voice guy. Bill. Clearly, you wrote it. I don't think on Ben. I just want to reiterate. So they start are. Yes. Stock up stock down. So basically, you've got to do something like this. It's time for jobs Sunday stocks who stocks are booming, and who stocks are dooming. Well, hold on when Ben once for NFL picks ahead. Ben do a voiceover on the spot, and it was brutal. And now he's telling me how to write the spots. Wow. On here. Now timeout whose name is on the show. The look he he could do it. My job is to make sure it sounds good. And I couldn't in good faith book. Can I tell you something? Now, I might come to the with an idea, and he might come to me with an idea over, although you how many liners the plays on the show that I have never even seen before they get passed and they get played. So I I understand what you're trying to do. You're trying to do right by your producer. But at this is the two knuckleheads working with. I think you just gotta take the bull by the horns Benjamin. No one's friend two thousand nineteen shirt story. Mccain of a line or two thousand nine that basically says Gelb I can't believe you're still listening to me CBS sports radio because that's what that sounds like what I get into the car, by the way. Well, I think it was three thirty five in the morning, and I hear some caller calling in. And he goes, oh, yeah. Dave Letterman, and Jay Leno, and you go with all due respect. No, you're not. No, you're not you're right. I'm better. Well, that's some confidence. I can tell you Dave Letterman's writers better than the to schlep sugars back there. That's for. Sure. What do you got coming up in for lumber? What are we doing with everything you just said? Better in a little more wide awake out more personally coming on. Boy, I gotta tell you. You're not a fan.

So you would have put them in the giants hall of fame ring of honor of other nothing like that. Now that being said had been came to meet tonight and said, hey, I got more con you'd be so giddy.

"Just in recent memory since two thousand thirteen the pats are one and four in Miami. So this could be a tough game Brady and the pats. They usually go to Miami. And it's difficult match up. I just have a feeling after not playing such a Chris game against the jets and then flying well up against the Vikings. I was the nice well-rounded win. I think the patriots are in a good spot. I think they know what's at stake. They had that stinker a few weeks ago where they lost the Tennessee. I don't think they have a stinker today. This the motivated football team this an offense that I think really comes together and played their best game of the season. I think they win the game like thirty three to seventeen maybe a back door cover maybe come into play somewhere. But I still think the pats cover the spread of seven and a half. Even if it gets too like, let's say thirty to twenty and gets a little bit tighter. Make you. Sweat it out for the final few minutes. But I like the pats in this one nine only to win but to win big and cover the seven and a half Benjamin. You got for me. We know that the patriots are the better team on both sides of the ball. There's no question about that. And we know that they're playing clinch the AFC east for the Trump team time. So they're motivated for Miami's right in the thick of things in the playoff hunt themselves. They desperately need a win. And as you pointed out history may be on their side in this one you pointed out a lot of these. But Miami's one four the fast pass five at home in this series. Miami's five and one at home this season both straight up and against the spread the patriots on the other hand are only three in three against the spread on the road. This year. Seventy one percent of the Beth right now are going to the patriots. And if you're a savvy better, you know, in the public goes one way, you go the other fade the public. I think the patriots win the game. But Miami keeps a close enough. Keep an eye on that half point at seven and a half. I'll take the dolphins and the points. Christopher Ben dropped a lot of knowledge. They're loaded nuggets nuggets. I'll give you one that. He didn't have. Oh. Ooh. Brady on the road seven and nine in Miami. Whoa. Got to get on our team. We're we're we're just dropping a twenty piece on you Elias sports at all right here. So Ben said the dolphins game a lot more than the patriots. Do the dolphins are technically playing with house money anyway. Because probably nobody really expected them to be six and six in the run for a playoff spot to begin with. Given the dolphins to win the game outright. Wow. Oh, miami. Dolphins will do what they always do. They'll give the patriots their share trouble at home. Dolphins win the game. James Phelan is oats after big week last week. He was he was very good last upsets last week for Mr. Jones onion outright. I thought. He was going plus seven half. It did not think he would go outright. But hey, you learn something every day. Eight twenty Sunday night football Rams at Chicago Khalil Mack, Aaron Donald golfers Trubisky. The strength of the Rams their offense the strength of Chicago Bears their defense. I think this gets into a shootout. So I'll take the strength of the Rams offense. It's a three point spread. I get you Congo's a home dog. But I liked the Rams to win by let's say thirty to twenty three thirty to twenty give me the Rams minus three points. But I think it gets up there and scoring. This year in the NFL may not be that story. It could be more. But everything's up there.

But getting fortified seedlings into the hands of farmers can require its own kind of revolutionary thinking. The sweet potato has always been an important crop in Uganda.

New strains of the crop developed by Uganda's national crops resources research institute, promise fortified, nutritional value increased drought tolerance and higher yields.

It's an issue that has heightened polarization since twenty fifteen when a million Muslim refugees flooded into the country, but they know that consensus needed more than half of German say they feel like strangers in their own land. According to a new poll, MS Merkel herself has admitted mistakes and allowing the rapid influx of migrants without better.
