A highlight from Saylor Now Own's Almost 1% of All Bitcoin, BUYS MORE | EP 831
"Yo intro first You're against freedom Yeah, we're gonna salute Bitcoin live we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution for breaking news culture manic warfare We will be your guide through The separation of money and state. I hope everyone had an amazing effing weekend I did I got to chill, you know everyone on the weekends like man like like what'd you do? What like, you know, what did you do anything crazy news, whatever? No, man I stayed home and I chilled and I relaxed because the week, you know, it's the Bitcoin rollercoaster making Bitcoin media You know, it's a grind. I'm not gonna lie It's very purposeful and I'm very very grateful and privileged Opti and I are and the rest of the simply Bitcoin crew But but it is it is quite a bit of a grind. So on weekends, I get to chill. Anyways enough of that breaking news Michael Saylor buys Even more Bitcoin the man or micro strategy better said now owns almost 1 % of all Bitcoin sky talk about Conviction this is conviction Michael Saylor is proving to the world and this is something that I've been saying guys in the next two or three years it is going to be Undeniable, it's gonna be an undeniable fact that naim bukele's Bitcoin strategy and Michael sailors strategy on the public company level is Going to be an alternative than holding fiat currencies on their balance sheets Especially with the FASB rule changes, especially with the Bitcoin ETF around the corner there They're gonna they're trying to do whatever it takes and I believe it's politically motivated I'm not the only Bitcoin or that has said this by the way That they're you know, they're trying to slow this down But it's gonna be undeniable and they're gonna have a very hard time Debunking this that Bitcoin Itself, it's just a better money It's just better money and governments are gonna have a hard time disputing that and the reason they're gonna have a hard time Disputing that number one is because they're always going to do they're always gonna want to debase their currency They can't afford the endless wars. They can't afford sending billions of dollars to Ukraine If they didn't have the money printer, so they're gonna have a really hard time explaining that away and number two Censorship, of course, right and the control on money itself, right? A lot of the reasons that the BRIC nations have sought alternatives to the US dollar Not only because the US government is printing a ridiculous amount of money but also because they've politicized the money they've weaponized the money against their political opponents and Fine, you could you can make the argument. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna make those judgments the government of North Korea are bad Okay, and the government of Russia is bad the government of Cuba is bad. I'm not gonna get into those arguments, right? but let's talk about The vast majority of people that live in those countries that are not have nothing to do with the government They're just like you and you and me. They're just trying to get by they get caught in those sanctions they have nothing to do with it and The system that they want you to live in is if you live in a certain if you were if you happen to be born in a certain country You happen to have certain political beliefs. You are not entitled to have to open a bank account You are a danger. You're a risk. Well Bitcoin is for you Bitcoin is your money it works. So they're gonna have a hard time and this is why we call it the separation of money and state This is why we bring up the book the sovereign individuals so much because it absolutely Hit the nail on the head this what we're living through right now, but it's not only money It's also the disintermediation of information which is happening at the same time. You're seeing it with the Russell Brand stuff You're seeing it with the Tucker stuff Independent content creators are now getting more views and more traction than the legacy corporate media of which they cannot control and that freaks them out too, so After we got over this hill after we endure this this this bumpy transitionary period and if we win the race to avoid the war I Agree with Corey Clifton from swan I think that there's a bright orange future ahead of us and I've never been so pumped about it But I got to say one last thing before I bring up my legendary co -host Michael sailor Please leave some Bitcoin for the rest of us. Anyways Opti. How you doing, brother? I'm doing great man doing great. I also unplugged this weekend. It felt good I was literally joking with everyone in the spaces. I literally lived the meme.

A highlight from Ripple's Fortress Acquisition Shows the Brittleness of Crypto Infrastructure
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Tuesday, September 12th, and today we are talking about all of this dust up with fortress and the Ripple acquisition and what it means and who you should be mad at. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends. Well, today we are talking about one of the biggest discussion points for the last week or so on Twitter, which has been the issues surrounding fortress trust. Let's begin our particular slice of the story on Friday when Ripple announced that they had acquired fortress trust. Now, the deal was pitched as an expansion of Ripple's regulated crypto offering as they built out a vertically integrated blockchain services product suite. And Monica Long, the president of Ripple, said in a statement, licenses are a powerful enabler to build and deliver best in class customer experiences for enterprises using Ripple's crypto infrastructure across our payments and liquidity solutions, which she was referring to as the fact that fortress trust holds a Nevada state trust license, which allows it to custody crypto and act as a financial intermediary with the traditional financial system. This would add then to Ripple's existing strategy of accumulating licenses. Between Ripple and its subsidiaries, the corporate group now holds 30 state money transmitter licenses, a New York state bit license and a major payment institution license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore. So commentary over the weekend on this fell into two camps. On the one hand, this could have simply been Ripple buying a company to add a custody service to its one stop shop approach to crypto. On the other hand, many viewed this as a quiet bailout of fortress. And indeed, the Friday acquisition announcement was slightly strange in tone. Executives asserted that fortress could add a key piece to Ripple's vertically integrated crypto offering. However, the deal announcement was a little bit out of sync with previous announcements from Ripple. Specifically, the acquisition valuation was not mentioned, which was out of character for Ripple who had brashly announced a 250 million dollar deal to acquire crypto custodian Medeco in May. And of course, we have to put it in the context into which it happened. Fortress itself was already viewed with skepticism. The licensed crypto custodian had been founded by former prime trust CEO Scott Purcell in December of 2021. Purcell had left prime trust in January of that year. That was around the same time that prime trust mishandled wallet storing customer funds, leading to an 83 million dollar shortfall. Several key executives left prime trust to follow Purcell into his new venture. The firm was also aggressive in hiring former banking regulators to their team. The rift between companies was so acrimonious that there were even allegations of IP theft in taking software systems built at prime trust across to fortress. In June of this year, the shortfall in customer funds at prime trust came to light. Around this, the company was first placed into receivership by the Nevada regulator and later declared bankruptcy. Now prior to prime trust acknowledging their insolvency, numerous high profile customers fled for other custodians. It was already widely suspected that prime trust was insolvent at the time. The most impactful departure from prime trust was swan bitcoin. In June, swan announced that they would be transferring all customer funds held in custody to fortress. The transfer took over a week and involved a shutdown of automated transactions with swan. To many, it felt like an emergency operation more than a normal business decision, although throughout the process, swan executives assured customers that funds were safe. So this is where we were over the weekend. Lots of speculation, lots of questions around fortress, lots of questions around ripple. And on Monday, new information came to light around the circumstances surrounding the fortress acquisition. The day before the acquisition, my birthday, September 7th, fortress had posted a disclosure about a security incident which they tried to make seem relatively innocuous. On that day, they tweeted, Thankfully, there is no breach within fortress technology or systems, impacted accounts were fully restored. And most importantly, of course, there is no loss of funds. We immediately terminated the vendor integration and out of an abundance of caution paused all accounts to assess and ensure system wide security. We are taking all necessary measures to make sure the vendor is held accountable. Although this has been resolved, transparency and security are of the utmost important to us and our customers. We also have some big company news we are excited to share later this week. Now, Ryan Weeks, a reporter at the block received a tip that the incident had been far more impactful than it was made out to be. Indeed, he was told that 450 Bitcoin worth around 11 .3 million had been stolen from fortress trust, although that specific amount has been unable to be verified. What has been verified is that the ripple deal was much more of a bailout of fortress than it initially seemed. A ripple spokesperson said, Conversations accelerated last week following the security incident via a third party analytics vendor, but this opportunity makes sense for Ripple in the long term. Luckily, Ripple was in a position to act quickly to step in and make customers whole, and there have been no breaches to fortress technology or systems. Fortress notified customers immediately of the incident when it happened, as they mentioned in their tweets. Now, for those of you eagle eyed observers out there, or I guess eagle eared as the case may be, owl eared, whatever, you'll notice that fortress's Thursday statement said, This technically is consistent with Ripple swooping in to make customers whole, but also somewhat misleading if in fact Ripple had had to bail fortress out to make those customers whole, but also somewhat misleading if ripple indeed had to come in to make sure that those customers didn't actually lose their funds. Now what was also made clear on Monday is that the ripple deal is still pending regulatory and due diligence approvals. Given that we already saw the Bitco acquisition of prime trust fall apart during the due diligence process earlier this year, there is certainly no guarantee that it actually goes through. Now, of course, as you've already heard, there are numerous other companies tangled up in this mess. Swan Bitcoin is, of course, one of fortress's most well known customers. They have been in an absolute narrative battle and have claimed throughout that they were completely unaffected by the issue and the client funds remain safe. The other companies impacted are the custodian services subcontracted by fortress. Their role in the industry is mainly as the holder of a relevant trust license rather than as a tech provider. We know, for example, that hot wallet services are provided by fire blocks, while cold storage is provided by Bitco. And indeed, with the behind the scenes detail now made public, Bitco CEO Mike Belshi wrote a Twitter thread outlining his disappointment with how the entire debacle was handled. On Monday, Mike wrote, they are still at risk and whether Bitco was somehow involved. Spoiler alert, we were not. When fortress lost funds, they chose to omit facts about what happened, downplay the event and conclude, quote, most importantly, no funds were lost. Obviously, we now know this was not true. I guess what they meant to say is we believe we fixed the problem and we have taken steps to make sure clients are made whole. But those two statements are not even close to being the same. Ripple has done the right thing and disclosed that a breach did occur. But fortress still has not made a real statement about what actually happened. So, summarizing what is publicly known, along with what we know from Bitco, one, fortress suffered a breach through some third party integration, not Bitco, two, via fortress's platform and some third party integration, the attacker was able to drain funds from fortress's hot wallet system, three, fortress used fire blocks for its hot wallet system, four, fortress noticed the failure and says they have fixed the problem with the third party, five, although fortress did use Bitco to custody some of its Bitcoin and digital assets, Bitco was not affected. None of the fortress assets held at Bitco were at risk from this third party integration or taken. After the breach, fortress reached out to Bitco. Bitco strongly advised fortress to disclose what happened immediately. Fortress did not do that. Eventually fortress decided to sell to Ripple. This is a great outcome because Ripple was able to make all clients whole and will hopefully help fortress with resources to correct the security weaknesses which led to this event. Ripple is a good actor here and should be applauded. The real victims here are fortress's clients who deserve enough respect to get the whole truth. They are not to be blamed. The whole situation is exactly why we need decentralization. We can't continue to be dependent on the honesty of custodians, bankers or trusted third parties acting with integrity when bad things happen. Bad things will happen and most humans don't have enough courage to be honest through it. So there are a lot of things that people are upset about here. One of the biggest strands of conversation has been around Swan. On September 11th, the company tweeted, Swan client coins are in insured cold wallets at Bitco and did not move during the reported incident at fortress. The coins are protected by video calls and physical access and are not subject to any incidents at fortress. Swan set up this agreement with fortress to use Bitco as a cold storage sub -custodian precisely to prevent such a scenario. Swan has direct on -chain visibility to funds at Bitco. When someone asked what kind of insurance Swan was referring to, Corey Clifton the CEO said, It's $250 million per wallet, with no wallet holding more than $250 million, provided by Lloyd's of London. It's the best setup we've seen. As always, take self -custody if you're willing and able. Now, responding to the critique in general of Swan being associated with these companies, which now have a less -than -stellar record handling customer assets and are now owned by a company that is anathema to many Bitcoiners, Corey wrote, Separation of brokerage and custody is the model for traditional assets for good reason, and there's a good probability it becomes law for digital assets in the U .S. I am not a fan of the trust -me -bro model of brokerage and custody under the same roof, like Mt. Gox and FTX. The goal is to have no single company able to unilaterally move user funds. We very intentionally set up Fortress and BitGo with that model. Now, I understand the narrative frustration here, but at the end of the day, the reason that Swan had to work with these companies is that there just wasn't anyone else. This is why as much as some Bitcoiners are worried about the entrance of traditional financial actors into the space, many others view it as necessary to just have more market options for crypto -native brokerage companies like Swan to actually work with. Anyways, the whole thing is a mess, reflective of how bad the infrastructure is for crypto and Bitcoin right now in the U .S., and a reminder of just how challenging digital assets are, even for companies that have big history in the space. The one other big story from yesterday that I want to cover was the FTX creditor update. The FTX bankruptcy team reports that they have marshaled around $7 billion in assets. Using updated valuations from the end of August, the estate holds $3 .4 billion in major crypto tokens. This includes $560 million in Bitcoin, $192 million in ETH, and $1 .1 billion in Solana. Now, of that, it appears that only $137 million worth of Solana is listed as vesting, meaning a much larger portion of the tokens may be eligible for sale than previously thought. The non -crypto assets include 38 properties in the Bahamas worth around $200 million, as well as $529 million worth of securities primarily made up of grayscale Bitcoin trust shares, $2 .6 billion in cash, and $4 .5 billion in venture investments, although no current valuation of those investments was provided. The firm's liabilities show $65 billion in non -customer claims. That figure is massively inflated by a $43 .5 billion claim from the IRS, which is presumed to be subordinated to customer claims. The IRS generally submits the largest possible tax claim during bankruptcy proceedings, but often negotiates down significantly or differs entirely to a creditor distribution. Of the remaining liabilities, a $9 .2 billion claim from FTX Digital Markets is assumed to be invalid or redundant, which leaves $4 .1 billion claim by Genesis and $2 billion claim by Celsius as the major non -customer claims to deal with. So far, a little over 36 ,000 customers have filed claims totaling $16 billion. Of the claims that have been scheduled so far, around 10 % of customers have agreed to their scheduled claims, while 18 % have disputed their claims and 72 % have yet to respond with either an agreement or a dispute. Now, easily the most discussed part of the news dealt with the firm's clawback strategy. Transactions done within a 90 -day window of the bankruptcy filing can be eligible for a clawback, but in practice, not all claims are pursued. The estate has successfully pursued $588 million in claims so far, and they identify an additional $16 .6 billion in clawbacks that could be pursued. The estate is currently considering how to deal with customer clawbacks where users withdrew from the exchange close to the bankruptcy being filed. Several options being looked at included the full 90 -day window for clawbacks as well as a shorter 15 -day window which captures the major public news surrounding the FTX collapse. Travis Kling tweeted about this saying, This brings up a big question of executability. How feasible is it for the estate to go sue people in every corner of earth? This is a really surprising turn in this deal. Everyone was thinking this outcome was quite unlikely the entire time. If the estate ends up doing what it looks like they want to, it will change the nature of this bankruptcy process. We'll learn more at the 9 -13 hearing. Indeed, the estate is due in court tomorrow Wednesday for an omnibus hearing which will cover numerous aspects of the case including the potential liquidation of crypto holdings as well. You might remember that three weeks ago FTX asked for permission to appoint Galaxy Digital as a selling agent. Selling would initially have a limit of $100 million per week which could increase to $200 million if creditors agree. The market has obviously begun to price in significant fear of this FTX liquidation. Sunday for example saw a liquidity breakdown in Solana as rumors of imminent dumping spread. And yet many think that the market is overreacting. Jeff Dorman, the CIO at ARCA said, The way crypto market makers and traders are front -running the FTX supply shows a complete misunderstanding of how a syndicated sale process works. This isn't an every -man -for -himself VC unlock. This is a court -ordered process that Galaxy will sell very slowly and opportunistically. Lastly, the potential reboot of the exchange remains a possibility. According to the report, 75 bidders have been contacted. The report stated that Proposals are being evaluated. Transaction timing will depend on nature of transactions, readiness of bidder, and other considerations. So, friends, if there are currently two archetypes of breakdown episodes, with one being legal battles that are increasingly poking towards a positive direction for this industry, and the other being cleanup from the excesses of years past, this unfortunately was one of the latter. But, as they say, the only way out is through, and so until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.
Judge halts South Carolina’s new stricter abortion law until state Supreme Court review
"South Carolina's newly signed abortion law has been temporarily halted by a judge. Judge Clifton Newman's ruling sends the new law that bans most abortions in South Carolina around 6 weeks of pregnancy to be reviewed. Planned Parenthood sued almost immediately after the bill was signed, a judge Newman said it would end up before the state Supreme Court anyway. The law is similar to one in 2021 that was struck down after the justices ruled three to two that it violated the state constitution's right to privacy lawmakers say the new law includes technical tweaks meant to appeal to justice John few, who wrote in his previous opinion that legislators didn't show that they did any work to determine if 6 weeks was enough time for a woman to know she was pregnant. The halt means the state reverts to a restriction at around 20 weeks for now. Since that decision justice Kay Hearn retired, making the South Carolina high court the only one in the country without a woman on the bench. I'm Jennifer King
"clifton" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"The Russian invasion. They've been holding a low profile meeting this afternoon to discuss providing ammunition, artillery, and armored tanks to Kyiv. We also learned this afternoon President Biden had a basal cell carcinoma lesion, removed from his chest recently as doctor says no further treatment is needed. A judge is sent in South Carolina attorney Alex Murdoch to life in prison without parole for murdering his wife and son, judge Clifton Newman brought up a phrase that Murdoch used while he was on the stand. What tangle web, we weave what did you mean by that? Meant when I lied, I continued to lie. And the question is, when will it end? Judge Newman called it unfortunate to see someone who was once so gregarious and friendly, turned his life into such a tangled mess of lies, one juror says the cell phone video putting Murdoch at the scene of the crime just minutes before the murders was a key piece of evidence in determining his guilt. It could take another week before some stranded residents in the Southern California mountains can leave their homes and Bernardino county board of supervisors chair, Don rouse says they're dealing with the needs as they come in.

On the latest edition of the tape podcast, a conversation with Sylvia jablonsky of defiance, ETFs. Ukraine have the ETFs out there already that, you know, attract and represent the classic sectors that investors want access to. The second wave of products was really in the thematic space and you started to see these cool broader themes, you know, like whether it's space or EVs and things like that. Now you have as you said this Jim Cramer long short. I think providers are just trying to come out with something new that will gather assets and we'll represent something that people actually want to trade. And you know, people do follow Jim Cramer and have strong opinions either way on his stock. Wait, what's a successful ETF in terms of size? What's considered to be a successful ETF? Do you need to see? Yeah. You know, it depends on the management fee. So obviously the higher the fee, the lower the thresholds that you need for success. So if you have an ETF that has 90 bps to 1% and you gather 20 million, that's sort of a decent baseline. But if you have an ETF that's priced at ten, 20, 30 bucks, you need to see hundreds and millions of assets to actually really generate a profit on that product because ETFs are actually pretty costly to run on the back end. Talk to us about the trend of mutual funds converting to ETFs. I find that fascinating kind of where are we in that process and how do you think it plays out going forward? You know, I'm young enough where I've invested in ETFs for a really long time and I've worked with people who are really like mutual fund believers, hardcore, which will fund believers and thought that the ETF would go away I mean, it's just really hard to argue that mutual fund assets will remain where they are. ETFs are just a much better rapper. You're the full conversation
Alex Murdaugh gets life in prison in murder of wife, son
"Alec Murdoch has been sentenced to life without parole for the murder of his wife and son. South Carolina circuit court judge Clifton Newman handed down the highest possible sentence short of the death penalty to Alec Murdoch after a Walter burrough South Carolina jury convicted the former attorney Thursday in the shooting murders of his wife Maggie and his son Paul. A sentence you for term of the rest of your natural life. Asked if he had anything to say, Murdoch maintained his innocence. I would never under any circumstances hurt my son Paul Paul. And it might not have been you. It might have been the monster you become. Prosecutor crate and water says the depravity of the crimes was stunning. Juror Craig Moyer told ABC News, a key piece of evidence was a video on Murdoch's son's phone taken minutes before the killings. Murdoch had insisted for 20 months that he hadn't been at the kennels that night near where the bodies were later found. I continued to lie. The juror said Murdoch was a good liar, but not good enough. I'm Jennifer King
Jury quickly finds Murdaugh guilty of murder of wife, son
"Of South Carolina jury quickly found disgraced attorney Alec Murdoch guilty of murdering his wife and son. I Norman hall, the jury took less than three hours to convict Murdoch to killing his wife, Maggie and St. Paul, about 30 members of the public seated in the courtroom were largely quiet as the verdict was read, the defense asked judge Clifton Newman for a mistrial and to set aside the jury's verdict. The evidence of guilt is overwhelming and I deny the motion. Murdoch, who was 54, faces 30 years to life in prison without parole for each murder charge. I Norman hall

"Stories that matter to Vancouver sports fans. Halford and brough in the morning, subscribe and download the show on Apple Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. All right, Matt, sorry for cutting you off there before we went to break. I'll allow you here to give listen, I always have space. I always say it's based on this PDO cast. For Connor Clifton stories because I maintain the no show that doesn't cover the bruins on a full time basis spent nearly the amount of time talking about Connor Clifton that we have here. And I think deservedly so I think I've been I've been vindicated. I've been proven quite right this year because they've given ML larger role and he's thrived and he's shown everything that I've talked about for years, which is despite his frame and despite his size. He's an absolute menace who punishes you and I think this is where you need to do. Next time you see Connor Clifton, you need to give him my business card. Tom to hire me as his agent because he's got a big easy guy I got a big contract decision coming up here this summer and I don't think there's anyone more fit to represent him than myself. You know what? He's really everything you want in the modern defenseman. He loves, like you said, he loves to hit you to reverse hit you. He doesn't mind to be hit. He's just fun to watch from a physical standpoint, especially being 5 11, one 80 or whatever he is. I think he might be one 90 now. But and also, he loves to go, like he loves to take the puck up the ice and wheel the net and look for something, you know, or just kind of get open for a one time or he's so much fun to watch. So the story is his NHL debut came in Dallas in 2018, November, whatever, 2018. And I had a perfect view, I was right on the red on the blue line with a bruins in the bruins on from the press box in Dallas. His first shift. Gets on the ice.

"In particular grizzly and Carlo because those two guys always seem to get hurt later on in the year. And, you know, whether it's the playoffs or it's just late in the season, you know, now we're talking you're what, you're looking to give Connor Clifton 25 nights, 25 minutes a night. You know, you're going to bump up Derek fort, you know? So I think where they need help and particularly at the trade deadline is the 7th D the 6 D, the 7th D, the 8th D because I don't want to be in a position where Jacob's a borrower is being thrown in in game three of the Stanley Cup playoffs and asked to play big minutes. I mean, I don't know about anybody else, but when Charlie mcavoy went down the other day and what looked like a terrible collision, I thought I started doing the math. All right, well, lindholm stays and then, okay, well I think then grizzlies are going to have to go up, which means Clifton's going to have to go, you know, now you're now we're shifting the whole thing up shift. And just that thought alone, I'm like, well, this team's dead. They don't have enough depth on D like this is terrible. And you know, losing mcavoy is obviously more important than if you lost Carlo, but it's the same rules apply. You don't want to be heading into the playoffs with your 7th and 8th D as is currently constituted. And I think that it's going to be, that's why you brought up Luke Chen. I think that's a great idea. You know, but I think they had this issue last year and I always love the guy like Jake Middleton, who I think went to where Minnesota, boy, but you want mean you want tough, you want young, you want sheep. The guy checked all the boxes and I thought he would have been perfect to slide into that spot and again, I just, I can't believe we've gone this far into his career. We still don't really know what we're getting from Jacob's oral. I mean, it's been a while now. It's time to figure out what he is and what he is.

"Stats. Where are the game starts? Speaking of games starting, not really, but you know, on that route, I guess. You mentioned there at the end. You know, needing a little bit more. I even said it was a safe bet that you need a little bit more. And you mentioned mason marchment, good peace on him, and again, good find. Who was it? You had one a few years ago, or maybe a year or two ago. You had Craig Smith. And then two years ago and then last year, I said they should assign bunting, which would have been. That was the one. That was the one. So the roses are listening to you. That's the thing. You know, got a second in their ear about this stuff. They got to get a subscription to BSD. That's what they got to do. My pick ants on D is Yan ruta. I think that's like, you know, for again, a right shot, depth defenseman, you know, maybe not every game, but Connor Clifton is your third pairing right shot defenseman. Again, not bad. It's not, I wouldn't say it's a point of serious need, but after him, on the depth chart, you have nothing. And I do think, again, like, I don't think, I don't know. I don't really think Josh Brown is coming back. You could get him back, probably for very cheap if you really wanted him. But again, I don't know how viable he is vying for an everyday spot in the lineup. I think Jan rud, again, is one, you know, I think two Stanley cups with Tampa Bay was a valuable depth member for them. Like a guy, he's a big body. Again, brown's a big body, but not to the level that, you know, I think it's a big body but he's just not quick, you know? I was relying on his reliable, I think. You can like, you put out Rita in a pinch, whether it's all right, he's gonna leapfrog Clifton in Atlanta or send battling back and forth. You know what? All right, well, it's all like Josh brown's in a lot of, we know what he's going to be he's going to be physical. But you're like, oh, see how he does. It's like rudo, you kind of know what you're getting. And as value in that of a veteran big body defense and further down the lineup. Exactly. So that's like my pick as a guy who I think the bridge. I don't think he's going to break the bank. I got it, he's making 1.3 million now. I don't foresee him getting too big of a raise. But again, to do all these things, you do need to clear space. That's funny. That's when he had an interesting quote at the draft. He was asked if the team needs to add to the roster in the next few weeks. And he said, there are going to be opportunities presented to a couple of guys to play in situations and leverage some minutes that is really important. We have to add to the depth of the club more overall. It creates an internal competition. We've definitely heard that quite a bit over the past bunch of years. Unless there's player movement in the next few days, it's not going to be a high end player coming in as a result of where we are in our cap situation, which he is not wrong.

"It is so Clifton strikes. I'm staring at my own results. It is so. It's called whoo. It's called whoo? You don't got no whoo. I don't. I've never heard that whoo. Isn't it strange finder test? So yeah, so when I'm looking at is the more recent version where they actually have it color coded. Purple is the execution ones, orange is influential, blue is relationship building and green is strategic thinking. And I can tell you I have zero purple, which is like focused, discipline, responsibility, consistency, arranging, achieving, right? None of that is me. I have three in the influencing section, which is competition significance command, maximizing activation, communication, self assurance. I have two in relationship building individualization and positivity and four in strategic thinking, which is probably weird. But I'm a learner, I like to be strategic, ideation, which I mean, that doesn't sound like a compliment, but whatever and futuristic. Maybe we're looking at different tests. Yeah, I think we might be because it's weird that I'm going to share my screen. I was looking at the clip, is it the Clifton thing? Yes. Cliff is it? This is me. It says whoo right there, woman. It says, whoo. That's what I just looked at that. That is so bizarre. And then I took the more the 34 is like how much do you have in everything? And I'm like, oh my God. It's like naked. And then influential and strategic. But I have no execution skills. I'm so sad. No, but that's ADHD. I know, but it's kind of makes me sad. I think most ADHD people are not going to have any purple. Hence my disliking of purple. I'm just kidding. Ew. So wait, so what are your ears again? Where are you at? Well, the ones that I have here that I took a while ago. So looking at that test, who knows if it's even there? Strategic emphatic intellection connectedness and input. Here's input, here's intellection, emphatic. Emphatic should be in emphatic or empathetic. It says that. It's probably positivity. That's probably in blue. And connectedness. Yep, that's in blue. And a strategic intellection. I don't know what the heck that is. Intellection is green. I don't know, we can find out. You like to think. You like mental activity and you like exercising the muscles of your brain. Yeah. So like I'm green and you're mostly green and blue, I guess. Yeah. Yeah, that's it. I'm all green and I'm all blue. And I lead with orange and then green. And that actually stands to reason because I do think we have a lot in common as far as like how we think of things in a strategic way. Like, we're pretty similar in those areas. It's the other areas. That I like to persuade and you're just like, you're just like, got an intellectualized everything. And I'm just like, let's party. Yeah, and but then neither of them, but then neither of us know how to actually do it. Neither of us go execute on it. We have no purple. If any of you are purple out there, help us. I know we need a purple person. I think Melissa is a purple. This is what I'm saying. I think it's so helpful to be able to that's why when I was looking for somebody to maybe because I've been noodling on hiring somebody just for me like a person to just help me out..
"clifton" Discussed on What Works
"Messy human emotions. Well, I thought that from the moment you had kind of posed that question of which hundred objects would you choose, it felt so accessible so practical, so just tangible, you know, and I often have a real challenge with processing emotions even recognizing that I'm feeling a particular way, but an exercise like that feels deeply kind of I'm going to use the word satisfying because it feels to me right now. It feels like the right word, even though it might be a little odd, but it seems like, okay, I'm going to get somewhere by doing this. I can feel like I'm making for a progress. I might not get to the end of it, of course. But I'm going to get, I'm going to move through this object by object. And I love the idea of packing an unpacking for those transitions in our businesses and our careers as well for the same reason. It feels like I'm going to go through this process, tangibly, and I'm going to get somewhere with it. And like you said, there might still be disappointment. There could at the same time there can be excitement for moving forward, but you're experiencing that in this very tangible way. So I really appreciate that analogy. I think it's fantastic. We love a framework, right? So love a framework. So love a framework. I am going to be applying both of these frameworks ASAP. Frameworks and tools, they are out there. And I think that's what I find astonishing. The loss on so many levels is such an essential part of the human experience. We live. We die, we will lose everything we love at some point. Everyone who lives will die. And yet we're given no coping tools, we don't talk about it. So understanding that there are frameworks that are tools and what I've been doing recently is doing a lot of research. When we did our Clifton strengths, input was one of my top strengths. So doing research with the idea that it might be applicable to myself and to others. So I've been doing a lot of research and it's been interesting to find how what I did instinctively as a curator and as a creative actually has some basis and correlation to modern grief theory. And that's been really interesting. And again, kind of validating, I think with the what works network and with people who listen to this podcast, we tend to be people who want to understand. What's happening? What happened? What do I do now? And there are models there are tools. There are frameworks that people offer. It's just not necessarily accessible to most of the general audience. Yeah, well, I mean, I think you're doing an amazing job making it accessible to a general audience and I think one of the questions that it doesn't really fit in the stream of the conversation that we've had so far, but one that I'm really, really curious about. And I think is important to probably a lot of people who are listening is I would love to hear about how you care for yourself as someone who is caring for grieving people. I mean, that sounds heavy. To me. And you know, an earlier you started to talk a little bit about that. But man, it just feels impossible to me. And I would love to know how you manage it. Right. Because there's the topic and then there's the business design. How do you approach that? And right now, how I work with grief looks like speaking about grief, writing about it, creating content and putting on these exhibitions. Usually during design festivals because that's my background working with design festivals and design brands. So that made sense for me to lean into that part. And to take your advice to borrow audience, which has worked really well because I already had that audience and that network in the design festival kind of arena. And also they knew they spoke my language. But in terms of figuring out how exactly I wanted to work with grief, oh, I got so much coaching on this the last couple of years. Because I didn't want to do grief coaching in the way that most people imagine it. I didn't necessarily want to be working one to one with individuals, sitting on Zoom, doing sessions. I wanted it to incorporate exhibitions in artwork and commissioning work from makers, I wanted to figure out how to bring that all together. So right now, the way I approach it is in a couple of different ways. One, I'm focusing on the speaking and content creating and the exhibitions. Down the line, there will be training and workshops, potentially working with individuals, but for now I want to stay at a certain level. In my approach and not try to do it all. The other way that I'm thinking of it is, how to design my life with seasons. So I see my grief work, having certain seasons. Where I focus on that, maybe that looks like doing retreats or workshops at certain times of the year where people need the most support. But that also means that I can take seasons off to recharge. When I really felt called to pivot to focusing on working with grief, that was one of my big, big concerns. Do I have to be talking about death all the time? Do I have to be thinking about grief all the time? Is that what I want to do for the rest of my life? That felt heavy. That felt like a huge commitment. Like I was going to become a nun. And that's not what I wanted to do. I'm an introvert. I know I need times off. I knew that I couldn't have a membership that was year long, for instance, and feel the need to be on all the time to support people, so I'm building my business in the way that I've learned from you. And how I built my content strategy business, of acknowledging, okay, this is what works for me. Speaking, getting a referrals, showing people what I do during exhibitions and during design festivals. So I'm translating all that I've learned from building that business into.

There is a 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Roughly 450 million adults live in the region. Gallup asked them if they would like to move to another country permanently. If they could a whopping 27% said Yes. This means roughly 120 million people south of the border would like to migrate somewhere. Gallup, then asked them where they would like to move of those who want to leave their country permanently. 35% of 120 Million or 42. Million, said they want to go to the United States. 42 million. Seekers of citizenship or asylum, are watching to determine exactly when and how is the best time to make their move.

"There's lots of different things that affect people some people have Evan heart rhythms nichols problems. Some people have heart failure with no blockages and or the people who have blocked arteries As a general rule if you can do a few things right you can do. A great job of preventing or lessening the chance of developing significant heart disease in those things have been preached for a number of years in sometimes the the doctor winds up signing a broken record talking about it but true and it involves things like maintaining healthy weight maintaining a good blood pressure having a normal blood sugar exercising regularly keeping your cholesterol lou eating in a healthy manner. If you can do things like that. And there was a study out of Because norway or sweden several years ago he can do those things right and you're going to reduce the chance of significant heart disease probably sixty or seventy percent. Those are things dr vansh. You could do to be preventative. I hate to get to the underside of that.

If at all possible things void Being overweight is a big one. I think maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly and not smoking would probably eliminate portion of what we see on a day-to-day basis to be perfectly honest. Paul And they're all they're all habits right. They're all related to whatever's in our bringing. It makes us do things that we shouldn't do that. We do it anyway. Whether you're going to smoke a pack of cigarettes or you know eat fifteen oreos in in a row or or never go out to exercise. All those things make huge impacts. I was clearly leading towards smoking there. Because that's something that i don't. I don't know what the numbers are. I know i grew up. I was the only person in my in my house. All the didn't smoke at one time it was it was a much different world. Where are we on smoking right now. Is it considerably less less of a problem than it used to be or are young people. Do i mean. We're i mean what's what's it look like right now. That's a great question We in our practice cardiology. We send us the tend to see more patients who have smoked for a number of years and so it. It still heavily prevalent I would say in younger people you see a lot of a lot of invading and the exact ramifications of that. Are you know unknown still. I mean who knows what that's gonna be like in another fifteen or twenty years when someone's been vaping for a really long time but smoking still a very big problem and not only does it contribute to cancer and lung disease but definitely causes problems with clogged arteries getting your heart or maybe the arteries that go to your neck orders to go to your leg. it's still of really big problem.

Are there certain things that all of us should. i think it probably starts going physician. Does it not.

Have your blood pressure. Checked hefner cholesterol. Tax your blood. Sugar is You know make sure that you were evaluated in a way such that you are clear to exercise to fairly high levels You know things like that. I would say paul. I want to joke in. I shouldn't have been joking. I was watching I was at a. I think it was a any stadium when i sent out this tweet about that.

Football game is an exhausting experience for most of us. We're sports fans here. Is i know you are as we get closer that season i mean i. It's not a laughing matter though. Is it because i mean. It is one of the most stressful things. Many of us do if we cook. Ekg's up to everyone in the house press tests on everyone immediately and just knock it out for the next year or two It is stressful. And once you add in the barbecue and maybe some of asians and a whole bunch of salt. It's it's quite a stress test for sure. Well more than we realize. I know you and your group will be outside every high school a stadium and every college stadium making sure that we get home safely just from from a heart condition.

"This'd Seattle's morning news, Dave Ross, with Colleen O'Brien and Chris Sullivan. With the new tax deadline of May 17th approaching, I thought it would be an excellent time to talk once again to our tax whisperer, Donde Sanders of Clifton Larson. Alan Deadline is May 17th and I thought this was interesting. On the iris commissioner. You gotta figure That text sheets are costing the United States Treasury $1 trillion a year Now I knew that people were getting away with stuff, but a trillion dollars a year that sounds rather high. So what are the implications of that? Well, David. I heard that story recently as well. That's from Charles Reddick, the current Iris commissioner, Reddick testified before Congress. You're just very recently and he threw out this number that, he said. Could be up to a trillion, and I think it was kind of. Ah, it's staggered a lot of people. Nobody expected to hear a number like that. So what do they do about it? I understand that they've been understaffed for some time. In terms of all this, in fact, isn't the audit percentage lower than it's ever been? The percentages have been dropping dramatically over the last 10 years or so, and you know the chance for just an individual. Yeah, And I'm not talking about a super wealthy person. I'm saying such kind of the average person And it strikes me that he's talking about raising taxes right to pay for that. If they could just get people to pay the taxes they owed. You wouldn't have to raise taxes nearly as much so would seem to be, wouldn't it be wise for the virus to hire a least a few extra auditors and try to capture some of that money? Okay, Well, let's look at a couple of numbers here from 2010 to 2018. Irish budget dropped 20% and their number of staff dropped 22% or about 17,000 people recently in the testimony before Congress, Reddick said that if we could have a billion more dollars a year, I could hire roughly 5000 you auditors. Now. What's interesting is that just recently, like collect system the last day or two, and we're probably going to hear more about it. With Biden's new tax proposals, he is supposedly coming out with a proposal to raise the iris budget. $80 billion over 10 years. He's talking about increasing their funding over two thirds. That's pretty big. No, it's pretty big. Now. We're not talking about stopping people from getting the legal deductions that their old we're talking about people who are either lying or trying to Take a deduction that isn't allowed to. Maybe maybe should explain the difference between tax avoidance and tax evasion. OK, there's a very famous jurist from the early part of the 20th century, and you're gonna laugh when I mention his name. But he was judge learned hand. Yes, I've heard of them. You've heard of him. Okay? Well, he is a very famous ruling. And basically what he says is that everybody has the right to plan. You know their affairs to reduce their taxes to the lowest legal amount. And that nobody is under any obligation to pay the iris, the highest amount of money and so consequently it's totally fine to arrange transactions to arrange things and in such a way that you get the lowest legal amount of tax and that's called tax avoiding. You can avoid paying taxes by planning ahead of time. Tax evasion, though, is different. Tax evasion is Look, you've engaged in some transactions. The fact they're basically set and what you're trying to do is either manipulate the fax. Distort them or just outright hide things. So you don't pay the tax That's invasion of Asians Illegal. Okay, so the deadline is May 17th. And if you lie, there is no statute of limitations. If you commit fraud, there's no statute of limitations on that. All right. Understand us.

I'm never going to do that again. I never want to fail out again. And i'm never going to do that again. So is an example in. I was an a meeting with a very high profile business person I had commissioned some research. i haven't checked the presentation that this executive was going to give an. I should have done on the opening thing. This research executive said woes Will i'm afraid that we don't really have the findings that we were hoping full. The client was sitting opposite me. And i thought they were going to explode with rage. Because i didn't know. I mean surprises are bad idea surprised I'm never going to be surprised again in a presentation. Except pleasantly and so of course. The car looked at me as the responsible party. I hadn't seen the presentation and was from that momentum woods. the temperature in the room was frozen. So we'll think about the off towards. I thought i'm never going to let that happen again on. Never gonna assume the anyone's going to get things white unless i have had Before i'm never going to assume that technology works beforehand. I'm never going to assume that people don't mind being surprised. Because i've discovered that they really don't like until they're their whole lot of things like that. There's also i'm sure we've all done it. You've been introduced people. They say that they met you before. You don't remember their names if you'll not good at remembering people's names. Don't introduce people. Learn from this stuff. I learned from a diplomat is a bad idea to say please to meet you or it's good to meet you because he might bet before without remembering it so it's a good idea to say good to see you. That's much better. And then you can talk to people about their experiences or what they're doing at the moment wanting charter member. So they're all sentencing.

I'm a Christian and so you know. so she's she's. She's really on top of her. Bible, knowledge and And so we're always kind of you know. She's trying to prove God and I'm trying to prove that it's it's the. So her. Yeah I just I just kind of I kind of feel like there's so many. Different personal experiences with with God. that that kind of Kind proves that. That he does exist and Even, we can't see him. But we can certainly. Feel that he is, he's around and in my opinion. How would your wife respond to that she? Basically. Just says that. You got to prove it. and. You mentioned you mentioned personal experiences. You mentioned personal experiences with God I'm wondering if you could give an example of a personal experience with God, and how you know that it's a personal experience of God, because there are people who claim personal experiences with all kinds of gods and with alien abductions and other. How do we know that because you've experienced something that you think is an experience with God that you're right? Prayer and just going kinda going through the motions. Basically, it's you know when obviously everyone has their hard times and everyone has has good times, and I'll let me fallen on hard times. Read you know we. Just. My personal experience I've. You know there's there's You Know God is always proven himself to. You. Know to help me. In the end. So any struggle that had. been really me down completely but I've always. Came out better on the other side yeah. So I understand what you believe happened when I was Africa's. How can we know that's what happened like? You think that God has helped you God spoke to you and you've had some experience God's help you in trying times. How do we show that that's true? Not just you think that God has helped you in those trying to. Well, it's I guess. It's. You. Get that feeling I. Don't know you ever heard of. God bombs like Kinda like the. migos! was bumped channels. You just kind of just get that overwhelming feeling that he's there and yes, so for the record I'm a former Southern Baptist who was going to be a preacher, and who has stood in church, and while praising and singing I've had God bumps goosebumps. EUPHORIA BEEN ECSTATIC convinced that I was in the presence of Holy Spirit. But that's what I was convinced at the. And when investigating and it turns out that I can't demonstrate that that was true. There's no good reason to think it was true. So a couple of occasions here of asked you. How would you know that this is true? And you just keep coming back with the you're convinced. I mean how could all all? It's got jumping because he may have a different take on this but Hawkins. Scott and I know that when you experience God, you're actually experienced God, and not just saying you're experiencing go. I guess that's based on on. You know it's a I would say we you have the. Believe in the Bible and I consider the Bible history, but it's. Don't did all the way from From the old Old Testament New Testament sold. It's basically basically history book. and. you know a lot of the things that? Happened in the Bible reaching kind of some. You can use in our personal experiences and. And I and I do I. Do know that my wife. I obviously pointed out the scriptures that are you know are bad and stuff like that and I get all that you know what about the ones that aren't true like when you go to genesis and the order of events in creation, don't match up with what science says. The order of events would be. Doesn't that Kinda show that that's not accurate. I'm I san as far as you know but we really don't long. What really happened in the beginning? So I mean, but we know there was never a time where there was one man and one woman whose names we knew who were. The originators and progenitor of the entire human species. We know that's not true. Well, we don't. Do, go ahead Scott? Yes. Sure so a Josh a couple of things. Stood out in in what you said. Was that You know based on your experiences? Whenever you've had a hard time, it was God that lifted you up again. Are you familiar with? Confirmation bias this this this biased that we do where we kinda count hits and ignore the MRS, when it comes to interpreting data in light of what we already believe like like. If you're driving on the road and you have this, you have this belief that Asians are bad drivers right anytime. Somebody cuts you off and they happen to be Asian you'RE GONNA. GonNa go see see I, told you. Asians were bad drivers, but you're exploring the hundreds of times. Somebody cuts you off and they're not Asian or the hundreds of times. Somebody doesn't cut you off and they are Asian do. Do you know that that concept where we we kinda? Pick out what fits with our previously existing worldview when we ignore the rest. On my idea I mean I i. See what you're saying that. You know yeah, so. Do you think it's? Possible that the your doing that. I mean when you say that every time you've had a hard time in life God lifted you up again. Is it possible that you're remembering all the times that maybe you prayed and you felt like that prayer was answered, but you're forgetting the hundreds more times when you're having a hard time and God didn't answer you, and maybe maybe you explain that away. Away by saying God works in mysterious ways or got has a lot of people to take care of or God wanted me to learn a lesson from this, but doesn't it seem like we live in a world? That's indistinguishable from God, not existing at all. Would you be saying the same thing if you were a refugee family in in Saudi, Arabia or You see what I'm saying.

The Harlem Globetrotters
"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children. Luckily it's been smiles for all since then

Tang clan of Mike's in men came out in May two thousand nineteen It was filmed to commemorate the twenty fifth anniversary of the group. And actually there's also a dramatize who series called Wu Tang in American saga which came out. on Hulu in September twenty nineteen It portrays a fictionalized account of the the formation of the Tang clan over ten episodes but I decided I was going to the source. Yeah I was GonNa Watch the documentary. Good good for you documentary. I read some chapters in some books. Wow I read some websites. I listened to a lot of music primary sources I am I am here for Al.. I am your as of this moment. Just for just for one tiny moment in the blip of the timeline of the universe. Im Your expert on the Tang clan. That's very exciting to me as a CO host most of this podcast that I am sitting in the presence of the current expert of the Wu. Tang clan this is. I can't wait to learn it. You're so right off the bat the term. MC It can mean master of ceremonies which is usually the only person at a gathering that was allowed to use a microphone. It could also stand for microphone controller or Mike Cheka It is also the general inverse skilled rapper and to be a true. Mc means being able to perform under any circumstance to the ultimate performer and an emcee masters.

Also one of the whitest white girl I am very. Are you aware and I apologize in advance. If I mess anything up please let me know and happy to take feedback on this especially because this is a topic that I I that I start from. Scratch basically exactly all right so if you are an expert too and you already own the complete route Tang discography and you have a relevant tattoo. A to somewhere on your person and you just wanted to make sure that I got the names of the members right here. They are so right off the bat. You've Rizza JR izza older. You bastard goes face. Killa La Method Man Ray Kwan Inspector Deck Masekela and you God and then later on you had capitana so now you can go ahead and forward to the sparkly quiz music if you want but if you wanna hear the whole story buckling so picture it. Staten Island late. One thousand nine hundred eighty S. Oh ooh I know your favorite of the boroughs so the Park Hill housing complex which is located in the Clifton neighborhood on Staten Island had become the site of steadily increasing crime crime and drug abuse beginning in the early nineteen seventies by the late nineteen eighties to gain the nickname of crack hill due to the many arrests for possession in or sale of crack cocaine that were taking place place in and around the development. The bulk of the Park Hill neighborhood had been built in the nineteen sixties During New York City's plan for urban renewal projects in the majority of US residents were African. American can the complex consisted of fifteen acres of six story. Brick apartment buildings hearing from former residence doesn't exactly paint the most glowing portrait but kids of all ages in this complex played outside listening to music. DJ -Ing break-dancing Designing Graffiti and doing all kinds of other activities. That would later come to define hip hop so in their early early twenties. Cousins Robert Diggs Gary Greis and Russell. Tyrone Jones formed a group named force of the imperial master later known as the all in together. Now how crew. So Gary and Russell lived in Brooklyn but will come to Staten Island to visit their cousin Robert. Each of the three members recorded under an alias. Gary grace was the genius genius. Robert Diggs was Prince Raquin or the scientists in Russell. Jones was the specialist the group never signed to a major label but they caught the attention of the New York City rap scene through their homemade tapes by nine hundred ninety. One genius and prints were. Kim resigned to separate record labels but the label seemed to have strong armed them into doing some songs that they didn't didn't really feel so for example prince teams for a single was called. ooh I love you rookie. Ladies Man in the showtime documentary shows parts of this music video from nineteen ninety one and it is very nice it is so ninety S. It's so he you know. He's all dressed in early nineties. Ladies have that bright makeup on the big hair and like the shoulder pads and it's like Ooh we love rocky and it's like China he's like yeah all the ladies love me and this is when you listen to his later stuff like that was that was not really his vibe boy. So that didn't go so well for Prince or team didn't go for further genius genius so the cousins refocused their efforts and they give themselves some new nicknames. So the genius became Jessica cheesy pronounce. Gizeh and prints are keen became name Rizza. Oh showers the Russell Jones became older dirty bastard or ODBC R- is said that he knew the best rappers on Staten Island and he wanted to put a home-cooked meal of hip hop of real people. Together there early nineties rise of West Coast. Music shifted mainstream hip hop visibility. Away from New York City and Rizza decided to change all in the early nineties so recipe and collaborating with Dennis Coles who was later known as ghost face killer. They decided to create a hip hop group whose ethics would be a blend of of eastern philosophy picked up from Kung Fu movies. Five percent nation teachings from the streets and comic books so five percent nation is an American revisionist movement which split from the Nation of Islam in nineteen sixty three so this movement rejected being called a religion preferring instead to be known as a culture and a way of life in its teachings are referred to as supreme mathematics which you'll hear over and over you know when they give interviews and talk about you know Wu Tang. They're always talking about the supreme mathematics. Okay cool so Liu. Tang clan assembled in late nineteen ninety-two with Rizza as the defacto leader and the group's producer Rizza an old dirty bastard adopted the name for the group after the film Shaolin and Wu Tang so in contemporary China Chinese martial arts sales are generally classified into two major groups. You have Wudong which is named named after the Wudang Mountains in Shaolin named after the Shaolin Monastery Risen said that Wu Tang was the best sword style of martial arts and the tongue is like a sword soared and so I say that we have the best lyrics so therefore we are Tang clan. Love it the group also developed backrooms for their name including witty unpredictable. Edible talent and natural game okay and wisdom of the universe and the truth of Allah for the nation of the gods. I feel like I've heard that. Yeah Yeah so this is a background. It wasn't like the actual thing but it's fun when they can do that to make it so the group pulled together three hundred dollars to record their first track at firehouse studios the song protect. Your neck was released independently on Tang records in Nineteen ninety-two. The song made them the most talked about new act in New York City's underground and announced a new brand of hardcore hip pop in in the documentary talked to some of their former management. who were like? Okay here's what we did like we would send someone at a record store like ask for the new. ooh Tang Song and they'd be like we don't have that and then they would have somebody else come back in and be like two of us have the new routines and they'd be like no and then somebody would come in like playing the Wutang boombox and people would gather around be like yeah. This is great and they'd be like yeah. Wish you buy some of this so it was like guerrilla me. Yeah it worked. uh-huh course they would also like early on. They would kind of show up at Radio Studios like a colleague Ecology station or something like that with album. You should play this. Maybe we should do that with our podcast. Why haven't we done that? Well maybe not with radio station. 'cause that's the University of Rochester banging on the glass door. Be Like you should thumb drives us. Yeah exactly thumb drive you should play. Yeah podcast I'm your radio station. What I'm sure you're three? AM timeslot is open. Yeah of course. It is so risen the management including his brother divine bovine wanted to make sure that the group's members wouldn't be saddled with exclusive contracts with a particular record label. He wanted them to be able to launch future solo projects so there was a little bit of difficulty difficulty in finding a record label that would sign the Tang clan while still allowing each member to record solo albums with other labels. Okay seve Rifkin. Allowed records agreed need to all of us in Nineteen ninety-three so loud would get the first option to sign a solo artist. But then they would be allowed to talk to other studios so if you were like I'm GonNa go out on my own loud could say okay. I would give you this much money and then you were free to shop around and then still pick is the best thing. That's a nice deal. Yeah it was in. This was pretty pretty rare for those times especially when labels like owned Like decades so signing with records everybody agreed that led to the November remember nineteen ninety-three release of their debut album and Tang parentheses thirty six chambers.
