Where do the Cowboys go from here? To the trade deadline — but as sellers instead of buyers
"The Cowboys easier to write about when they win or when they lose? Uh, they're easy to write about what they lose. When they win. People feel good. You sell more newspapers when they win. That's a proven thing. So there's that. But, man what you know now, sometimes when they're bad, they're just not interested. And they just kind of go away. Like I don't know what it's like to right about when the Detroit Lions are bad. They probably just people are waiting for the Red Wings to drop the puck. But when the Cowboys are bad, there's usually nine different things in Iraq, And this year there, there might be that might be multiplied. So there's you can just pick out of a hat. And and and go from there. What is Jerry? June Jones do now? You know, one of the really disappointments with serious disappointments, obviously of code. But one of the rial lighter disappointments of this year is that he doesn't do press conferences after every game, because I can't imagine. What level he would have reached yesterday. Um, you know, it's Tze one thing to get beat up by Seattle or airy Arizona's offense. They can't stop the run. With anybody, not the Washington football team. They run for over 200 yards. And if you want to pick one area of the Cowboys that does not beat up my injuries. Their front seven They've got Jalen Smith. They got banned arrest. They've got the Marcus Lords they've got. They've got elegance. They got Everson Griffen. They got Tyrone Crawford. They got guys were supposed to be there, and they can't tackle anybody. And then you have the hit on Andy Dalton and that nobody seems to concern about the chief shot by Jon Bostic. That wasn't it took the announcers of minutes to kind of recognize, but they did eventually, So okay, that's that's a brutal Yep. Be Amari Cooper is standing there and there's others around there had to be a number of players see it. I would think the entire offensive line and to see it. On nothing. Nothing at all. I mean, I can't imagine. If that was Dad getting hit like that that they wouldn't have done something but that that just pointed to the the give up factor of this team they looked like in the first quarter. They're out there to see when it's going to go badly, and you know how much it's going to feel like a ground hog day. They got nothing on either side of the ball, but quitting is worse than losing to him. Yeah. And of course, coaches will always and players will fight. You didn't quit. Everybody has a great attitude by when you see something like that, and when you see it That And when you see a team that just gets gassed in the run and announcers every week, whether it's the money, night crew or yesterday was was Moose. Ah lot of destroyed job back and they get very quickly. The out of position on these place. They really get outflanked quickly without defense. I mean, they're they're talking around the fact that team looks very poorly prepared and has no idea what to do in the players. Never respond if Jerry had to do over coaching. Well, I mean, that's what What was it about Mike McCarthy flying in and spending one night at the Jones house and all they were just so wowed by this guy. They couldn't believe it. Now, what have you seen in any game that he brings? You didn't call the plays so anytime the offense was playing well earlier in the year, That's Kellen Moore is offense. So what is he doing over there that he brings Emily brought in all these coaches? Guys he had in Green Bay 10 years ago. Mike Nolan, who hired him 20 years ago. It's just this. This cronyism tied coaching staff. And you wonder, and you wonder how much Jerry thought about like a mat rule. He mentioned Matt Rule one time last December, just after Baylor played in the Big 12 championship game. What a great young coach to thought. Matt Rhule wass. And you're Matt Rhule took over a team that was just God awful and got ready Cam Newton, and they released whatever they are three and four. They compete. Uh, yeah. I mean, I don't know. I don't know that he wouldn't like to rethink this lot. Now it's the first year so I think both the pandemic the DAC injury, the offensive line being completely wiped out. Those going allow the coaches to skate for year. But he has to be thinking this. This may have been a Terrible higher. The Cowboys buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. You know, I don't think they have a lot to sell. I heard somebody saying trade one of their wide receivers. They don't need that many hundreds of it. That's the one thing they have is good wide receivers. You want to trade one of those go You know, Draft Ah, linebacker with a neck injury. That's what that's what excites you about rebuilding the team. I don't think they will do much. There's certainly not Myers, they get by. I mean, I don't know why in the world you would add. Do it to a terrible collection of talent as this many injuries, but I don't expect him to do a lot, actually.

So it's a it's a pretty good experience. I wanted to get Raymond Wong from. The input here this week because not the put my thinking of doing the right thing. He. wrote a big piece about the emulation experience on the surface duo and how it was just amazing and there's just something really. Something really comforting about playing emulated games on a screen that looks like that where you can basically put the controls on the bottom and just play the game.

"Whereas you know Google can tell you that you know a million APPs are compatible and they are compatible. They'll turn on they just don't work as expected and if they do work, it just looks terrible, right? Okay. So Tld are using a relatively new APP. It should work fine if not, then you may be out of luck. So try to find a newer alternative. Outside of the software bugs like it's six fifty for the base model for the TAB seven and you're getting the SPN included with it. So like if those. Kind of a software bugs in the APP compatibility doesn't bother you like this is a really good value. If you want something for like content consumption or if you want a device that you can a draw or take notes has that same nine millisecond latency of Aspen from the note twenty. All alterra like the value there from the Aspen and the specs is is really nice. It's just whether or not. You can put up with some of those quirks that android still hasn't form factor like this. It's worth pointing out though that the tabby seven's keyboard cases two, hundred dollars. Is Insane. So yeah, you get an aspen but to make this into a laptop that is very specifically designed for the tab seven, it's an extra two hundred. So that's eight fifty. That's not cheap significantly more expensive than the IPAD air. I don't know if it's worth it, but if you buy the seventy dollar. You Know Folio Case You'd buy your own Bluetooth Keyboard and mouse. You'll be fine. It's way less money So we have a list of cases. If you're interested on the site, logitech makes keyboard with a slot that will hold your tablet.

"I'd argue if you're looking for kind of the whole smartwatch experience, Samson has. Kind of owned that field a little bit in. They're also involved with the health side of things with their galaxy Samsung health sweet From from what I've used of both of them, I would probably say that with like the Galaxy Watch getting kind of more of the a similar Appalachia experience where it's a decent mix of the health and the notification side of things. Buffet bit has been trying some new things pushing the needle a bit more kind of holistic health and a more robust health tracking outside of just like tracking your steps in your activity throughout the day. To Jerry just you know you kind of did a tongue in cheek tweet. Apple Watch announcement linking to a pulse ox similar on Amazon for like twenty bucks. But tell me how accurate these consumer great sensors are compared to their dedicated at a medical grade counterparts. The LITTLE PULSE OX seminar I've listed on Amazon is what most Er nurses us. There are very very. Accurate. Devices on carts on wheels that they can role in if they need an extremely precise measurement. But you know oxygen saturation in your blood. It's of those things. If it's under a certain percent, there's a problem and there's little bit of wiggle room. So these cheap centers are good enough. EKG, no cheap sensors aren't good enough. Heart rate they're probably good enough is long as they're consistent. Because your heart rate, you don't need to know an exact number you just need to know. What you need to do to elevate for exercise and what it is at rest, and it gives you the same number every time. That's good. Enough your doctor can do any measurements if he needs a precise. Thing. And I made a joke earlier but for consumer grade devices. Unless, you have health issues, you can probably trust this stuff. Especially, if it's something like apple health where you can export the data for your doctor look. I would trust them. I. Just was just making a joke. So. It's better than nothing but at writer not as good as having a dedicated censor, I think that will be true. That was true a few years ago when they debuted and it's probably going to be true indefinitely. Yep. But the confluence of these sensors is really what I find quite impressive. Right the fact that you're getting six seven, ten sensors on the back of a of one wearable is what I find interesting both about the Apple Watch the fitbit sense. Right the the sense can do electro dermal. Measurements, so it can check your your skin temperature. It can do it could do e C G pending fs FDA approval outside the US. It can obviously do heart rate heart rate variability it can do low low and high heart rate alerts into all these things which is. The. The holistic part of it is not clear to me yet and Joe can probably back me up on this. There's the sort of EDA. SCAN. Feature. where it uses a combination of readings, both of your skin temperature, your heart rate your. You know your heart rate variability to check for stress and it's sort of like, Hey, you're stressed you should.

"This is a feature that allows you to basically hold the phone in portrait orientation and because of the orientation of the. ultra-wide censor lets you then basically crop within that region under because the sense on board you have this smooth panning and also really good stabilization works Well enough. I not really person the that would use this feature lots. I do think there are compromises in terms a low light performance as well. So it's again, it's an interesting experiment whether it really take off I don't know whether it it'll just be consigned to the. what a basement the. Things like. Previous LG video that we've had go to I'm not sure. But it's it's perfectly fine for what it does. It works well enough but I'm I'm not sure it's really a killer APP for this phone. All right. So when it comes out, it'll be under a thousand dollars. We don't know exactly the price it won't be available on locked in the US because lg but presumably, this has a very similar marketing trajectory to the velvet except it's not going to be nearly as mainstream. One of my. One of my carrier sources tip me to the fact that is running TV spots for the velvet for the first time in four years, they haven't done anything on US domestic cable. Since the G six I want to say What they're trying to do is really recapture some of the mainstream interest in their phones with something like the Velvet, which is a five G. phone that significantly cheaper than anything from Samsung what do you think the? Where do you think the wing fits into that? Does it at all fit into the company's mainstream narrative do you Think anybody is going to be buying this or is it really just for people who want folding phones but don't WanNa spend two thousand dollars it's a little bit of the latter i. think you know you could if you perhaps in the market for a little bit of an expensive unusual phone, but you don't WanNa stump grandma galaxy flip to than I can see for this other than that I think it's basically just a halo effect, right? It's the same thing as the galaxy series has the Samson you may be get interested in LG by looking at. Something like the the wing, but then ultimately go by a velvet because it's basically the same internals. It's about five hundred dollars cheaper and from what you can tell is powerful enough to really do everything that algae wants to do to power to screens. It looks as well as the the velvet. I think he's a big big part of what makes it feel West. Fast than what of your flagship flagship phones in the thousand dollar plus a area is the. The refresh rate of the screen, right sixty hoods it's always a bit rough going back to that after us a high refresh rate display Nicole's because the you wouldn't necessarily expect high refresh rate because you know the two screens, the graphical power to do that perhaps that it works well, enough. There's a decent amount how it works. You know. I've noticed any additional a battery drain, all lack of performance when I used in the down position it's more the you know sixty hertz and a snapdragon seven, six, five G..

"It's Merriam Webster sort of day for September sixteenth. Today's Word is Cronyism Spelled C. R. O. N. Y. I. S. M. Cronyism is a noun that means partiality to cronies especially as evidenced in the appointment of political hangers on office without regard to their qualifications. Here's the word used in a statement from the Cato policy report by Lee, drew men. From the end of the civil war to the beginning of the new deal, America's national parties retained their incoherence because most of the important political power was at the state and local level, some states and cities were better govern than others and there was plenty of cronyism and corruption throughout the country but the stakes of national elections were lower than today. The work of ethical guidance called ecclesiastic as includes this sentence forsake not an old friend for the new is not comparable to him. Practitioners of cronyism would probably agree the word cronyism evolved in the nineteenth century as a spin off of the word crony meaning friend or pal crony originated in England in the seventeenth century perhaps as a play on the Greek word kronius meaning long lasting from kronos meaning time. Nineteenth Century cronyism was simply friendship or the ability to make friends.

Whistleblower complaint alleges virus warnings were ignored
"Remember Dr Rick Bright. He was the guy who would be in charge of the government's efforts to find a corona virus vaccine and two weeks ago. He was removed from this extremely important job with zero explanation. Then Dr Bright claimed he was fired for pushing back on President. Trump. President trump push for an unproven malaria drug to be essentially distributed on demand. Today he filed a really revealing and shocking whistleblower complaint charging among other things and abusive authority or gross mismanagement. He elaborated on a conference call reporters this afternoon two years however had been beyond challenging time. After time I was pressured to ignore or dismiss expert and scientific recommendations and instead to award lucrative contracts based on political connections in other words I was pressured to let politics and cronyism dry decisions over the opinions of the best scientists. We have in government Dr. Brian also described his concerns about the lack of government response to the growing outbreak. As far back as January after bright relayed concerns from domestic surgical mass produced that quote the mask supplies at imminent risk. Nothing happened for Week. Leading the mask producer. Email bright quote rick. I think we're in deep shit joining me now. Sam Stein politics editor of the daily beast reporter. Dr Rick Complaint today and Sam. It's it's a long and detailed document and it is quite revealing. What jumped out to you? Well two things. One is the stuff that happened prior to the corona virus outbreak. Which is he details. The systematically corrupt HHS process in which Huge contracts being awarded to people who are very close to top officials at the Agency. The more pressing thing obviously many detailed an administration that was basically had their heads in the sand. I with respect to the corner virus outbreak in China for weeks. Not Months you touched on a bunch of stuff early on but just warning for seeing that a shortage of n ninety five masks was going to be a huge problem and being unable to convince anyone up the chain that this is something they had to deal with also a or lack thereof around getting a vaccine in the developmental process which we now see the administration. The president has but he was talking with officials. January early February about the need to prioritize the stuff and of course got nowhere. But I think the larger thing I was it was interesting to hear. Kathleen civilians. Talk about this is that there's sort of a bigger picture here. Which is that. The careerist and the scientists in the administration were more or less ignored or pushed aside and have been since the onset of the administration's not just the disbanding of the pandemic units. But its people like Dr Bright who are dismissed as alarmist even though the scientist nistration and this is sort of common pattern that you see with his presidency where he goes more with his political guts and how he's thinking than actually doing any long term strategic planning and it's more than guts and there's an allegation of essentially corruption. Here right that that that you have career. Scientists and civil servants were making determinations based on the science and there's pressure from above from the trump administration to steer things in the direction of people that have a a monitor interest because they're buddies of the president like that. And that's one thing if you're talking about know a contract for buying pencils for a federal agency it's another we're talking about vaccines and lifesaving drugs right now. There's so there was this story which detailed the president's push for hydroxy chloroquine as therapy drug To be stockpiled against all sort of prevailing scientific evidence or lack thereof that it was effective in Dr Bright raise. Those concerns admitted that he brought to the attention or confirmed an inquiry from a journalist which ultimately led to his dismissal from his post. So that this is a case of someone saying this is really crazy. What we're doing is borderline not completely unethical. I mean stop and he took provocative steps to stop it. There was another story today. Involving a jared Kushner is Coronavirus tasks in which one of the complaints made against that was that Fox News personalities were able to jump to the front of the line in terms of getting people to hospitals that they deemed helpful. Or you know emotionally close to. So you're absolutely right. There's a horrific way to do this. In the trump administration is basically hitting every which is cronyism favoritism and dismissal. The science I want I want play. What a bride had to say about H- dismissal the of high hydrochloric being the kind of breaking point in terms of Administration take a listen.

Venezuela in crisis
"Venezuela is a country in freefall as economic mismanagement an international sanctions. Combine to create desperately difficult times for its citizens as global debate centers, on who's to blame successive, socialist governments or countries like the US, who are putting the squeeze on the government of nNcholas Maduro, people are struggling for basics like food and medicine. US correspondent Zoe Daniel has recently returned from Venezuela as gentlest Venezuela is not an easy country to work in media vases, difficult to get and even with them in hand report is closely monitored by the authorities and government backed armed groups called collective owes rooms need to be checked for bugs sensitive interviews must be discussed in hushed tons movements should not be telegraphed and should never happen after dark time spent in each location needs to be limited violent crime is also close to the w-. I in the world and much of the story that needs to be told is in the slums, or barrios, where poverty hunger and disparition exacerbates that risk. There are also the gangs who trade in drugs, and ruled the roost in recent months, escalating political tensions have added the risk of protest rallies, turning violent clashes between opposition activists and government troops and proxies, all of this means that the stories of ordinary Venezuelans are infrequently told but when you give them the chance this sentiments a clear. Something by women and men young and old have to realize the critical situation, the country, is going through these days, hunger, misery, repression and unemployment. We spent a week in the slums of Caracas and surrounds talking to people about life and politics. Well, I. Research says that nine out of ten people in Venezuela, count afford enough food, because of hyperinflation, which is rented the local currency almost valueless government food parcels that handed out monthly a dwindling. Sometimes now, they come only every second or third month, and they're often missing case applies like milk. There's widespread frustration and people are starting to voice it. Even with the risk of recriminations, Ropeway sediment Settimio, nothing seems to improve it all gets worse. So I think they should be change to give the opportunity for someone else to rule the situation has created a window of opportunity for opposition later. One guy who was backed by the US, and ustralia among dozens of other countries when he declared himself president after twenty eighteen elections that are widely condemned as flawed, although you get the sense that it's a case of right place. Right. Time rather than one guy DOE, having specifically captured the public imagination ROY Innis weather. It's not just a problem for Venezuela, what the international community has done so far is very important. The recognition of our constitution and of me as interim president Australia did that to what's important. Now is to keep the pressure up the dictatorship won't voluntarily leave. And fortunately them enduro government wouldn't respond to the concerns raised by those who can't get enough food or medicine at a time when political division globally runs deep Venezuela's, plied attracts, at a response almost all of the Venezuelans that I've encountered blame the economic collapse, on mismanagement by successive governments who've nationalized, assets, subsidized goods and services failed to manage the country's oil revenues and allowed endemic, cronyism and corruption. They don't always mention soc. Realism specifically many still harked back formerly to the days of logistics, under, former president Hugo Chavez. But for many observers Venezuela's become a symbol of the broader failure of the socialist model, that's gained particular traction as lift and right retreat to their corners, the world over. However, defenders of socialism, attack outside nations for interfering in Venezuela, particularly the United States, which is imposed harsh sanctions and an embargo on oil Russia, China and Cuba continue to back the Madero administration. And that's a K driver of US involvement. The big picture issues, but for ordinary Venezuelans who've seen they country go from the richest in Latin America to a basket case they just want something to change, so they can feed their families, but from Caracas that's North American correspondent, Zoe Daniel.

"I gotta tell you guys. My Email about candy city Baca is fascinating fascinating. Some of you keyed right in on some of her more. You know, crazy progressive suggestions. But many of you are saying dang. She would say something that was super conservative and then veer off to the left, but she's very likable. I told her I want to have dinner with her. So we can just sit and have policy discussions. Very smart. Very smart. So we'll see how she does it. Yeah. Yeah. This is this is a perfect example of the Email. I'm getting I was thinking it was going to be like that crazy lady from Alaska today you interviewed but found myself agreeing with her a lot more than I thought mostly the small government and accountability stuff, of course. And as a proud capitalist. I think she really means cronyism, but overall very interesting at I'm telling you, that's and here's the thing as we see the next generation of people step up for politics because she's not that old. I mean, I didn't ask her how old she was. But she's got to be at most like early thirties at most she may still be in her twenty s I don't know, but they're less ideological party politicians then old school. I I will tell you my millennial kids they have no desire to be part of a political party. Not grant. Are you a registered anything? Nope. You're are you you're registered to vote are. Oh, yes. Yeah.

We're having Rosen on next week and Rosen is coming on next Wednesday because I got multiple inquiries saying are you going to do a voter guide for Denver. And frankly, I don't have the time or energy. And I don't love that stuff. And Mike Rosen does love that stuff. Like that. I think Mike probably got off the phone with Dave when we call to ask and probably did a happy dance. He's probably already done the damn voter guide for no reason just for his own edification. You know, so Mike is coming on next Wednesday at one o'clock, and we're going to go through the whole ballot for Denver the Denver metro.

What's holding back Russia's economy?
"Put that into perspective that is slightly smaller than the economy of the state of Texas and about the size of New York state's economy. California's economy more than fifty percent bigger than the Russian economy. And in a lot of ways, it seems like Russia's economy should be a lot bigger than this, especially given some of its natural resources. Russia is one of the. Top three producers of oil in the world. It's one of the biggest producers of natural gas and it has huge reserves of nickel, aluminum, palladium, yes, rush again, be Biegel. Russia should be Sergei Alica Shanka is an economist with the Brookings Institution. He also served as the deputy chair of Russia's central Bank in the nineties and circuses to understand where Russia's economy is now, you're actually have to go back to the nineties Cold War had distended. It was a new chapter for Russia's economy. The transition from plan centralized socialist economy to a more open economy was wrenching in chaotic and full of cronyism and corruption. But eventually companies from all over the world did start coming into Russia, like Pepsi Dannon, BP, McDonald's, and starting row nineteen ninety nine. The Russian economy also started benefiting from oil prices which started going up and up and up and Russia's economy followed. This was just as a young ambitious official name. Vladimir Putin became the prime minister. The beginning of the twentieth century was maybe the best of the most successful period old Soviet Russia, economic history between nineteen ninety and two thousand eight Russia's economy tripled in size, and then the global financial crash happened Russia's economy tanked, and it's bounced around a lot since then. Now the Russian economy though is about the same size as it was a decade ago, did that's may be the most painful side of the story that Russian economy lost momentum. This momentum. Meanwhile countries like the US, Germany and China have recovered and grown since then. So what happened to Russia? Sergei says there are three major obstacles that have held Russia back from the global economic party. Of course, the major problem for the Russian economy was they declined oil. Prices. Oil is Russia's biggest industry by a mile. It's the government's biggest source of revenue. So when oil prices fell during the financial crash from a high of more than one hundred, four. Eighty seven dollars a barrel to about thirty dollars a barrel. It devastated Russia's economy. An oil prices have fluctuated a lot in the time since and they are pretty high right now, but selling oil has gotten more complicated for Russia which brings us to the second reason that Sergei says that Russia's economy has stalled, wisdom, sanctions below, can access to financial markets and imposing something on foreign direct investment going to Russia western sanctions. These were put in place in two thousand fourteen after Russia invaded Ukraine. The US and other western nations tried to get Russia to pull out of Ukraine by blocking it from doing business with many foreign companies. Putin refused to negotiate the sanction state in place for the last four years. Russia has been cut off from a lot of foreign trade and investment investment. These, like if you'll for your car, if you have fuel, you may dry. Your engine will walk. If you have no investment, economic will grow. But circa says the biggest thing holding back. Russia's economy is not oil prices or even sanctions. It's something a lot closer to home elect of pro property right protection, a lack of proper property right protections. Sergei says this makes doing business in Russia, very uncertain. Even for Russians, you might have thriving business doing really well and making lots of sales, and the state could just take it or someone with connections could just take it and there's not that much you can do. So it's it's worries about corruption that it's actually these corruption is only
