"It took steep as some time it took him time. To catch up with some of the movements and the motions took him a little bit of time to see what was available foam and there's a rule in fighting if something works go back to it all night long. Theory being full first off if it worked once it's going to work again and second the reason it's going to work again. Is because your opponent has no time to correct it. If you have a pitfall within sport. Okay. Great. You get exposed US conor McGregor, expression you winner you learn. Fine. That's very true. But that involves going home. Recovering. Sitting Down with your coaches getting the note pat out putting the tape on the TV breaking it down frame by frame finding where your weaknesses are bringing in. Adequate training partners working on that over and over in what's known as a cap, and then coming back and trying to make sure that that weakness no longer exist as what it is. So if you could catch it on the fly. It works one time. There is a theory you go out and do it again, I don't know if there's ever been a time that has been more prevalent than steep doing fourteen of the same trick shot. It really is a very tricky thing to do. We'll see them boxing a lot. You don't see a ton of body shots Ma. For it to have taken him to fights and twenty minutes and complete exhaustion and losing rounds to see this open and find it one, two, three, four team times. It's really very remarkable and I do think if you want to say the Daniel cuts debate. Okay. Fine. Then you've got to say, Steve, pay Dan on this thing is awash. But. I would be curious. Are you like me even though we've seen this twice even though we've seen that this has not gone the distance twice. Do, you still feel compelled to believe. That ultimately, this is going to be a decision. The evolution of the goat is is very interesting in many ways. I mean, first off, you have in the goat conversation nothing but an argument. which largely Coz down to popularity. Popularity contest but sometimes, you'll try to be imaginative and so many times you'll want to argue resumes. You're not wrong to do that. If the two athletes are never to compete if Lebron is never going to play Jordan, it's all that you're left with. But. As I talk about the evolution of the go I'm hearing the argument actually changing look in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six, a boxing reporter out of Brooklyn New York is the one who coined the phrase pound for pound. Okay as the author of the statement, he is entitled under Literary Laws To also define it if he chooses any did choose to. And what he said was regardless of weight class skill for skill who could go in any way to anybody else, and that therefore was his definition of the pound for pound. I've heard people attempt to change what pound for pound over time, but you don't have that right. Poetic license goes to the author of the statement. So that's what you're left with, but the gold argument has really evolved. Think of it. In this way, there was a time within this sport where you could not leave your division. That was not a rule or a policy or a commission overseeing that was just the way the day and a half everybody needed. We were doing divisions and everybody's GonNa stay within their divisions. All of a sudden Daniel Cormier has the lighter weight champion bounces up to two or five champ champion comes a real thing. And off you go. So. That's not factually right. What I just said is it that is not right. Conor McGregor is the first who've done it. Okay. Great. You still understand the point. That and tell that was the thing it wasn't a thing. So now, if you look at the guys who attempted to do there and did it successfully Do. They get a nod in the make believe discussion of the goat. I. Mean it does appear that go that. We're going to fiercely adhere to the rules that we make up on the spot because if you make that criteria would about the guys that were around when that wasn't a thing. Or what about the heavyweight fighters of today who simply can never go down to a different way class? Do you see where this becomes a problem? If you're a attempting for legacy reasons to win this fictional argument that you are put in a position where you ever win the argument you see where it becomes a problem. The world amateur wrestling right now is a guy named Jordan burroughs. I would put Jordan burroughs as the second greatest athlete currently alive. I wouldn't put Simone biles number one I. would put Jordan burroughs number two but you could probably argue that point Jordan is a very, very special athlete. Jordan has never left his weight class. He's never been asked to. He's never been tempted to. He is absolutely stay put but within his career. Everybody else's come and seen Jordan at some point. Kyle came down to Saad Jordan at some point David, Taylor came down and saw, Jordan, at some point, Kyle dake moved up ran into Jaden Cox at some point Jane. Cox. At Cross paths with Neider Jordan burroughs while standing his ground in this one way classes actually covered for. He's the only guy who by proxy has touched four different weight classes. Got, his hand raised repeatedly he gets to go down as the great. But he stood his ground. and. I. Do think if you were to look at the current rankings and if you were to be one to argues, you have to be able to change weight classes. You're going to have a very hard time when the pound for pound list ranks bebinger Magomedov at number one who has never changed white classes. If you don't agree with that and you think, John. Jones should be number one who is currently ranked number two. If you think that's wrong. Okay. Fine doesn't make a bit of difference. He's never changed weight classes. Not only offer you those by example. Because why should a guy have to? Guy Finds his right discipline mean how many things are you going to take from an athlete that's been very successful. If you could be you can do what you do, but you can no longer do it at one, hundred, fifty five even though that is his way What else are you going to take from? Okay Compete. Here's the thing you've done. Really Great I acknowledged you really but you've always done it with Harvey or Mendez I'm GonNa, take your trainer way. Then let's see how good jar. It seems as though you default back. To a suckers theory that we do see today when you have a striker versus a grappler and striker says, you're scared to stand in Bang with me as a way of goading professional into leaving his best skillset behind if that's what it is, you could do it in reverse hey Damien. Maya. How dare we go to the ground? How about you stand here with them? It's one of these really bizarre things that people will still attempt to do but I would only ask as evolution of the goats continues. How many make believe fixtures? Do you want to take from a guy? I mean, how? If you take his weight class away I'll take be Jordan burroughs. I'll take all comers I. Entered the tournament you get federation car to get on the scale. I'll take you on simple as that your read on blue. Let's go. If he does that over a period of time and has this overwhelming level of success who's to say that he has to change weights for what what would that be about? How would that affect whether he was great could affect his resume how many trophies he can what is that what we're doing here? I've heard that that argument is we come back to Jordan and Lebron I don't know how many lebrons that now but I remember hearing like Lebron's got four Jordan has six. This was the thing at one point might still be accurate. I don't know what that has to do with them going head to head. I'm not really sure what a guys record would have to do with this set period of time..

Reading the New Testament Letters: Q & A
"How to read the New Testament Letters. Let's start with a question from Damian in Minnesota Hey. Tim and John. My name is Damian. Leverett and I live. Live in Saint Paul. Minnesota I'm a classically trained theater actor and performer, and listening to these episodes has made me wonder if it could be a fruitful practice for churches to have people like me. Trained in speaking complex texts in an active embodied way, read the letters in their entirety in live gatherings. What do you think about this idea is? It's stupid. Are there any pitfalls or problems that you'd foresee? I'd love your advice. Thanks for all you do all right. I'll respond first Damian your idea is the opposite of stupid. It's actually brilliant and so important, and yes, you should do it. No questions asked. All Right? That's my first response. was here's John for sure? Yeah, you. We talked about how these letters were originally heard. Read Aloud. Yeah, that's right and that there is something about. Hearing it all in one sitting that helps you Kinda feel the shape of it in a different way. I noticed when I read. I get really stuck like what did that sentence mean? I don't keep moving. But, if you're in a situation, where just being read aloud in listening to an audio version of the Bible, that's really powerful, so so if you have a vision for using your experience in theater. That's awesome. Yes, John and I. Both knew a guy named Jason Nightingale. Who had just ministry nonprofit, he called word sewer ministries, but essentially he memorized all the books of the New Testament. Did he do all of them well? I don't know that for certain, but the sampling that I. Know that I've heard him. Recite before makes me think he's for sure got. From the gospel of Mark to the book of revelation Romans, Hebrews. Fijian's so we back when we were in our twenties, heard him. Yeah back in the nineties. Nineties Nightingale. But Man. This guy traveled all over the US and the world reciting books of the New Testament and then sometimes he would give short little homily. Reflection afterwards, but his main thing was to recite whole books the New Testament in one go for groups of people with such a booming. Yes, wonderful destroy had a uniquely amazing voice yeah. So yes Damien I. It's a wonderful idea. It should be normal I. Think this kind of ministry should be normal in the life of a local church. Yeah, having somebody who's like the memorizer and reciter of books of the New Testament. So guts be Damian. Go forth and memorize and recite his question from Lauren in Indiana Hi John and Tim. This is Lauren and Fort Wayne Indiana I'm listening to your conversation on the New Testament letters with my usual rapt attention, and in episode three is John expressed some frustration that the theology. The New Testament isn't more thoroughly connected and expurgated. It made me wonder. Wonder whether Paul as a Hebrew scripture scholar, who understood that it was as you call it. He Meditation Literature. Do you think it's possible that he crafted his epistles in that same way so that people would need to hear them and read them over and over to really get the depth of meaning just curious. Thanks for all you do God bless. It's great question. I thought that was really insightful. Question. It is true especially Paul the his letters are hard to understand. There are or you could say there are many parts that are difficult to follow. And you remember at some point in the series. I mentioned passage in Second Peter where Peter felt the same way That's right. Yeah, yeah, he says there are some things of Paul's letters that are hard to understand. However the question is. Is that intentional? He could. Is it a bug? My hunch is that for Paul's letters that it was expensive to write. Letters can talk about this future episodes. How how letters were actually produced and how expensive it was and the process involved, but I think part of it was just the way he communicated through these letters and the way his mind work. was like a beautiful mind. In terms of. Is this guy crazy or is this guy brilliant? I think it seems you can just feel bursting out of sentences in Galicians that there's whole volumes. He could riot on what's underneath just a couple of sentences and so? I think you actually could. You. Do need to read them over and over at least I have for years, but I'm not sure it's necessarily because he crafted the way. The Hebrew literature is crafted I. Think it's he was raised on that literature, and so he certainly is shaped by it and talks things by, but I think it's also just the nature of him his unique personality, and then the letter medium. How would you think I hear what you're saying there? Yeah, he not designed with the same maybe. Maybe intention analogy that scroll in the Tanakh would have been designed potentially, but he had internalized that design, and that tradition, and that tradition so much that it undergirds everything. He sang by Medicare, eating on Hebrew Bible, and then meditating on what Paul's writing. Yes, as cool chemistry that happens totally which I've noticed. Yeah, yeah, working on this project with you so many things come pop a lot more when when I start to see the things that that Paul was seeing And which are things that you've been pointing out these patterns and themes inside?

The stigma around COVID can be as dangerous as the virus
"Every country in the world is grappling with the covert epidemic. Some much better than others. In many of those countries stigma around the disease plays a very important role in India. Stigma is directed at Muslims in Haiti at orphanages in Spain at Italians and in the US at asian-americans stigma related to disease his not new and in the US. It goes back hundreds of years. Those who are infected are considered to be part of an outside group and they have been blamed ostracized and often brutally attacked for simply getting sick. Geneva is in North Africa compared to other North African or African countries. We have one of the oldest population with a population of twelve million. To Nisha has one of the best healthcare systems in Africa with well trained health providers but few hospital beds and very few intensive care units so public health and testing need to play a large role in controlling the spread of Kovic. My name is Gibert BELKA KOREA. Young Damien continues. Yeah working For the Institute Jaber is concerned that the public response to co VID has turned into a blame game. We have fighting a virus year. We non fighting people what we seeing right now. The message about Kobe is more about foreign train. People that have the disease as bad people highlighting gators and saying hey the virus or the diseases coming from these neighborhoods. When people are scared it is human nature to want to blame others and create a narrative of outside bad people causing the problem. It is their fault. My family or my community would never have caused this problem by being portrayed as bad people are scared. That basically makes him hide. And we've seen that with other diseases that has to beg colossus or or HIV. Basically people don't WanNa get tested or portrayed as cubby positives in in their communities or in the neighborhoods but when people don't get tested it's hard to control the disease and we can't know about hot spots and we can't do contact racing and individual suffer as well. Jaber told me about one example. He found particularly upsetting burying. Gubbay positives agents or Ned evil. Some communities refuse to have burials in noticing. Theories scored It's it's it's human rights. I mean if it's done properly. It knows no risk. Stigma itself is like a virus. The fear that drives it is contagious. It's absolutely gear driven by giving the correct information. We can remove that fear. Remove that stigma and no the movie This virus from the comed- once we find a way to manage Kovic nineteen and we will. It would be too bad if we eliminate the virus but are left with the plague of stigma.

"Does those stories with Damien that's incredibly profound when when you start to unpack that yeah do those stories stop at the neuroscientist or or the biologist or does it continue on to the philosopher it does the artist or the or just the imagination of of the person walking down the street after he does and and it does so in a variety of different ways you know for instance when you when you think about say creative expression you can ask yourself the question what is going on in the human brain when it is undertaking some of these behaviors and are these behaviors somehow the product of an evolutionary history that selected for those beings that carried out those kinds of behaviors and this is again a contentious arena of thought but if you imagine that creative undertakings are the product of a human species that survive by virtue of having the qualities of innovation and ingenuity problem solving the ability to exchange in a deeply soulful way allowing us to pull brain and brawn in a way that other species are on able then you can certainly see artistic expression as the natural outcome of that kind of creative thought that allowed us to prevail in the ancestral environment because we were able to problem solve in creative and innovative ways so in that sense be creative process that you're referring to can naturally perhaps be seen as part of a long evolutionary trail that goes right back to the ancestral environment the way you're speaking of it emphasizes which what I believe to which is we're not there obviously we don't we don't have this complete a line story that's consistent in all these rooms we don't have that in science let alone a when we've moved beyond the boundaries of science do you think we can get there I do think we can get there and along the way we need to be deeply open minded to consider a variety of distinct explanations because look even for creative expression there are people who think deeply about this for instance Steven Pinker perhaps is the most famous who think that certain kind of artistic undertakings take music as an example do not have any adaptive evolutionary role I mean his point and it's a famous phrase that's quoted by many he sees these kinds of activities to be the analog of cheese cake right what is cheese cake right so our forebears survive because in the ancestral world they developed a predilection for eating sugars and fats and oils so fleshy fruit and ripe and nuts because those of our forebears who stocked up on those calorie rich foods are the ones that would survive when times turn to leave so there was a selection pressure to enjoy those kinds of food stuffs what is cheese cake it's a modern incarnation that preys upon that adaptively useful quality in the ancestral world it doesn't give us any nutritional value but nevertheless we are inclined to enjoy it because of our ancestral past still painter says the same thing can be said about music those of our forebears who were more sonically tuned listening to the environment and they could hear a sound over there and a sound over there and they would take it all in they better understood the landscape within which they were existing they had a better chance of surviving because of that music then ultimately comes along and preys upon that sonic sensitivity that was selected by these evolutionary pressures and it doesn't provide any adaptive value to S. at all it's rather just pushing the pleasure buttons in Pinker's language that themselves will lied upon our ancestral past but now it's just parasitic and so so it's a very different way I I don't buy into that perspective because the ingenuity that I seek to route that's required to create great music feels to me very much like the ingenuity that we see at work in problem solving and understanding the universe I mean what did Einstein doing the special theory of relativity he looked at space time and light and the rearrange the building blocks in an unexpected way where he made the speed of light concert not space in time consummate the speed of light content which forced space and time to vary that move that rearrangement of the building blocks of reality is the same kind of ingenuity that you see in box right Glenn Gould in discussing the Goldberg variations describes how the music can be inverted and transformed in a manner that allows the harmonic richness to still prevail so I sort of see this ability to rearrange the world in unexpected ways to be at the heart of problem solving at the heart of ingenuity and therefore it seems to me that the artistic creative predilection and and tendency of our species is deeply connected to why we survived in why we prevail but that is not something as universally accepted I am not having cheese cake with you that is like an experience to have cheese cake together after that I'm just I'm just imagining having dessert later tonight and thinking out about all of these things you wouldn't like my cheese cake I'm vegan at third to taste like tofu but I click to expand upon this idea because science isn't the only one that's approaching this kind of question of consciousness that's been wrestled with the science was a thing yeah is it is it I mean how may how do I put this in like will science like actually offered the explanation that matters the most to people because science is still a constructive of humanity and getting even with it being a total explaining it you know some of the immutable things we see in the universe yeah absolutely just so it's clear I considered science to be again one of those nested stories it's one pathway toward a certain kind of understanding of the world and these other pathways are are just as valid and just as important for the kinds of questions that they are designed to evaluate consciousness is one of the deep questions and you know the the so called hard problem of consciousness which is unresolved as of today is that how could it be that particles electrons course you choose whatever how can particles that themselves don't have any conscious qualities at all how can you take a collection of them put them together in an arrangement and then all of a sudden the lights turned on all of a sudden this inner world emerges how can that possibly happen if it's just particles and the laws of physics and some say it can't just be particles in the laws of physics one of the proposals that go further will some say like David Chalmers at NYU maybe particles like electrons do have consciousness proto consciousness a little piece of consciousness and you get enough of those particles together and you can pull the pro conscious qualities you can get the conscious experience that we all have inside of our heads right at this very moment now I'm not convinced by that proposal I totally understand the motivation for it because the puzzle is a significant one but I like to reflect back on an analogous puzzle that we now think that more or less we understand in the eighteen hundreds a similar question could and was asked how can lifeless particles can be arranged in a collection that somehow becomes animate transitions from inanimate that how could that possibly happen what was the answer that some put forward then it can't be that it can't just be the particles you need to inject that system of particles with something else the life force vitalism and without that the system of particles will not live but now having understood life at a greater level of fidelity than back in the eighteen hundreds very few perhaps no scientist speaks like that any longer we now look at the living object and they say yeah if the particles if the forces combine them to chemistry and biology and in a matter that we have not yet fully worked out you will get a living system nobody thinks that you need a life force any longer my own suspicion is that fifty a hundred a thousand years from now I don't know the duration we will look at consciousness and come to the same conclusion it's just particles and forces and that's all you need for the lights to turn on but the way you describe it isn't is one that reconciles with other forms of of thought around this and so like what I hear dissolving in your thought is this brain that has existed accurately or inaccurately of science verses real Agence science verses the other forms that it's in that reconciliation that we may find additional deeper truths here yeah so so I I I fully subscribe to that perspective you know there has been a long tradition of tension between science and religion especially in the last couple decades where there have been some of my scientific colleagues have gone out in the world in a manner that basically tries to rid the world of religion and the argument typically is religion is something that we made up it is contradicted by our understanding of the physical world so it's time to grow up and let that perspective go and my view of that story is that judging religion bites capacity to explain the external world is using the wrong yardstick religion was not developed in order to be able to truly understand the external environment you will never use religion to calculate that electrons magnetic moment to ten decimal places that kind of question is in the sweet spot of physics it is not in the sweet spot of religion but there are other questions that are in the sweet spot of religion or let me talk more generally spirituality right if we try to understand our internal world our conscious experience how we engage with that external world then that kind of inward journey that spiritual journey is something that religion at least for some can offer a powerful guy you know there's a there's a great and and and profound book on religion that doesn't seem to be read as much today as it should be it's William James varieties of religious experience published in nineteen oh five based on twenty or so lectures that he gave in Scotland in nineteen oh two in nineteen oh three and here's a scientist a psychologist respected psychologist who goes through the kinds of religious experiences that exist in the world and the role of the important roles that those experiences playing by the end of the lecture by lecture twenty he sums it up in a way that is remarkably poetic he describes religion and spirituality is something that allows us to understand the terror and the beauty of phenomenon that allows us to deeply understand the the voice of the thunder the gentleness of the summer rain the sublimity of the stars and it's that inner capacity to feel the world as opposed to just lay out its nuts and bolts in the way that we physicists do that is deeply important and vital role for religion and there were two out in the world so to me that's another one of the stories that needs to be combined with in the collection to have a full understanding of the human experience who I'll just say like what you described that that feeling that emotion this the sim blindness of one of the stars yeah that's what I get from science but when I get when I look up at the at the heavens outside and feel like the combined knowledge of of humanity across yes hundreds of years yes and if that combined knowledge you know there's there's this wonderful poem of Walt Whitman that you're probably familiar with many are the learner to strong numbers right and in the you know I won't I won't quote it we get it wrong but the basic gist of the problem is the the person is speaking in the poem is in a lecture hall being lectured on the stars and the planets in the galaxy is then described how he begins to feel sick and bill by just looking at the equation from the mathematics so it leaves the lecture hall walked out into the darkness and just stares up into the night sky and and so if you can combine it all then I think you can get to a place where you don't feel sickened by the reductionist explanation of what's out there rather it can deepen your experience of looking up at the stars but you've got to look up at the stars and that is a vital part of the full story so I want to go inside some of these stories because we're still building those nested stories right now and I have to say you know I am I am in my early forties and this past decade we have seen such leaps in experimental physics results that that shattered my imagination like in just in the past decade we witnessed the announcement of the Higgs boson discovery we we were here on earth when I grab additional wave that originated a billion years ago rang it rang two bells yep on earth and we it just in the last year we we image of a black hole which is a he's a it it's impossible the image something black but we did it hi these are amazing moments in in physics I want for I have a two part question I want to start by saying like what has your experience been of the advances to somebody that's not in physics been that experimental physically us demonstrated over the past decade is somebody that works in the theoretical side of things yeah you know it as it as a theoretical physicist my my bread and butter activity is fiddling with mathematical equations attempting to extract interesting insights into the nature of the world from the mathematics and hoping against hope that the math is actually relevant to the external world and that last part of the story is a very subtle one I mean even Albert Einstein after he wrote down his general theory of relativity others quickly applied his equations the entirety of the universe and came to the conclusion that the expansion of space should be happening that the wi university be growing and Einstein resisted that idea to the two people who came to him with this idea of various moments he said to them your math is correct but your physics is abominable and what he meant by that was not all math is relevant to how the world actually works you have to have a deep understanding a deep physical intuition to know which match should be in math textbooks in which Matt actually describes the world so as a theorist you struggle with that issue all of the time in the beauty of the results that you recounted is each and every one of them began as a mathematical idea and a piece of paper on a chalkboard digs boson Peter Higgs was walking around the outskirts of Edinburgh trying to figure out how particles have mass and jotted down some equations that ultimately turned into this idea that there should be this bizarre notion of a feel that uniformly fills space and particles as they try to go through it feel the resistance like a pebble going through molasses and that's were math comes from and fifty years later that idea was confirmed through the discovery of the little piece of that field that a collision of particles is able to chip off and.
NFL players approve new CBA, runs through 2030
"Radio one big measure that allows the NFL to move forward with business as usual is the approval of the new CBA time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless players this weekend voting in favor of the new collective bargaining agreement which means there will be labor peace for the next decade it also means that we will see a seventeen game scheduled as early as twenty twenty one the vote was close closer than many had expected ESPN analyst Damien woody clearly there's a lot of work going on as far as it relates to this new CBA deal you're talking about a difference with two thousand roughly two thousand please holding only fifty votes sixty votes were the difference on what this new CBA passing another narrative was you had the big money players you know saying no and rank and file is going to be it's going to follow through but that wasn't the case that was clearly not the case but it's both clearly there was a lot of racquetball player they did not agree with that with this new CBA also the union has some work to do CDA passes this weekend but as you heard passed by a margin of just sixty votes ESPN front office insider Louis Riddick yeah it's one of the situations where obviously you can you can tell that there's a lot of the desert there's a lot of uncertainty when you have the you know a boat that was separated by less than a hundred boats as far as accepting this new deal not accepting his new deal obviously there were people not just the top one percent of your top five percent with the rank and file as well that we're not comfortable with this you're talking about making deals like this but I understand that was part of the rank and file one point time and understand what our media hundred thousand dollar increase would mean but I you know I also believe that you know there really wasn't a chance of there being a work stoppage in twenty twenty they're gonna play games this year regardless and I think you know having been on the front office side of things and I've been around contract negotiators for the better part of the past two years of my post playing career twenty two years my post playing career when you have leverage you have time on your side the smart ones are the ones who try to lock you into long term deals early and entice you with cash flow immediately because they know they're going to make it back on the on the on the backside they're gonna make out it sounds like that's exactly what the owners got the players to do and I think once you start breaking it down and talking to people who really understand how CBA negotiations once before but the revenue sharing split actually really is and how revenue is going to explode once now owner start negotiating TV deals your movie centered on some one time prior to the two thousand eleven CBA that we were basically net net fifty fifty partners in now we're forty seven percent partners and we're going to forty eight point five percent part how did that were not actually fifty fifty partners anymore when we basically are the capital where the human capital and tried the game and we signed a deal that with the Europe tour early and we didn't have really any reason to do so because they were going to stop us from playing really this year anyway so there's a lot of questions I'm sure and that that right there it looked like it in the wake of both played itself out we really didn't get into this look man I mean I'm I'm I'm happy that he won because football is my life and that's you know I everything I have I owe to playing the game at the highest level inflated manifold the deal making deal making and owners are very good deal making I think they showed once again you're talking about the vote we have a lot of social reaction the Twitter reaction early on on the show in the ravens Marlon Humphrey tweeted that five hundred players didn't vote on the CVA we have the numbers last that's about right what do you say to that that's ridiculous man knocking Buhari's thing it's American will know what happens when you know you get into a situation involved voting and then you just don't even participate but then you're one of the people were complaining about how many things turn out if it doesn't turn out the word benefits you will you have no right to say anything that is one of the most important things outside of obviously what is going on a global basis right now which believe me I've gotten my attention and everyone else is but as far as your profession is concerned what is more important now than a ball players and his cast your vote one way or another educate yourself about how this new CD is going to affect you tell me five hundred plus people dissent I'm either on vacation I don't have time but you know I don't like don't we are you kidding me that's amazing to me that that the medically non participants when it when it comes to a democratic partisan voting there's just no excuse for his non otherwise don't don't say a word please don't say a word whether or not this is good or bad you don't they work if you have no you have no voice anymore you just elect not to participate that's very very disappointed new CDA passing by sixty votes with five hundred members
"damien" Discussed on KGO 810
"Does those stories with Damien that's incredibly profound when when you start to unpack that yeah do those stories stop at the neuroscientist or or the biologist or does it continue on to the philosopher it does the artist or the or just the imagination of of the person walking down the street after he does and and it does so in a variety of different ways you know for instance when you when you think about say creative expression you can ask yourself the question what is going on in the human brain when it is undertaking some of these behaviors and are these behaviors somehow the product of an evolutionary history that selected for those beings they carried out those kinds of behaviors and this is again a contentious arena of thought but if you imagine that creative undertakings are the product of a human species that survive by virtue of having the qualities of innovation and ingenuity problem solving the ability to exchange in a deeply soulful way allowing us to pull brain and brawn in a way that other species are unable then you can certainly see artistic expression as the natural outcome of that kind of creative thought that allowed us to prevail in the ancestral environment because we were able to problem solve in creative and innovative ways so in that sense be creative process that you're referring to can naturally perhaps be seen as part of a long evolutionary trail that goes right back to the ancestral environment the way you're speaking of it emphasizes which what I believe to which is we're not there obviously we don't we don't have this complete a line story that's consistent in all these rooms we don't have that in science let alone a when we've moved beyond the boundaries of science do you think we can get there I do think we can get there and along the way we need to be deeply open minded to consider a variety of distinct explanations because look even for creative expression there are people who think deeply about this for instance Steven Pinker perhaps is the most famous who think that certain kind of artistic undertakings take music as an example do not have any adaptive evolutionary role I mean his point and it's a famous phrase that's quoted by many he sees these kinds of activities to be the analog of cheese cake right what is cheese cake right so our forebears survive because in the ancestral world they developed a predilection for eating sugars and fats and oils so fleshy fruit and ripe and nuts because those of our forebears who stocked up on those calorie rich foods are the ones that would survive when times turn lead so there was a selection pressure to enjoy those kinds of food stuffs what is cheese cake it's a modern incarnation that preys upon that adaptively useful quality in the ancestral world it doesn't give us any nutritional value but nevertheless we are inclined to enjoy it because of our ancestral past still painter says the same thing can be said about music those of our forebears who were more sonically tuned listening to the environment and they can hear sound over there in the sound over there and they would take it all in they better understood the landscape within which they were existing they had a better chance of surviving because of that music then ultimately comes along and preys upon that sonic sensitivity that was selected by these evolutionary pressures and it doesn't provide any adaptive value to S. at all it's rather just pushing the pleasure buttons in Pinker's language that themselves real lied upon our ancestral past but now it's just parasitic and so so it's a very different way I I don't buy into that perspective because the ingenuity that I seek to route that's required to create great music feels to me very much like the ingenuity that we see at work in problem solving and understanding the universe I mean what did Einstein doing the special theory of relativity he looked at space time and light any rearrange the building blocks in an unexpected way where he made the speed of light concert not space in time consummate the speed of light content which forced space and time to vary that move that rearrangement of the building blocks of reality is the same kind of ingenuity that you see in box right Glenn Gould in discussing the Goldberg variations describes how the music can be inverted and transformed in a manner that allows the harmonic richness distill prevail so I sort of see this ability to rearrange the world in unexpected ways to be at the heart of problem solving at the heart of ingenuity and therefore it seems to me that the artistic creative predilection and and tendency of our species is deeply connected to why we survived in Y. V. prevail but that is not something that's universally accepted I am not having cheese cake with you that is like an experience to have cheese cake together after that I'm just I'm just imagining having dessert later tonight and thinking of about all of these things you wouldn't like my cheese cake I'm vegan at third to taste like tofu but I but to expand upon this idea because science isn't the only one that's approaching this kind of question of consciousness that's been wrestled with the science was a thing yeah is it is it mmhm I mean how may how do I put this in like will science like actually offered the explanation that matters the most to people because science is still a constructive of humanity E. I. N. yeah you've been with it being a total explaining it you know some of the immutable things we see in the universe yeah absolutely just so it's clear I considered science to be again one of those nested stories it's one pathway toward a certain kind of understanding of the world and these other pathways are are just as valid and just as important for the kind of questions that they are designed to evaluate consciousness is one of the deep questions and you know the the so called the hard problem of consciousness which is unresolved as of today is that how could it be that particles electrons course you choose whatever how can particles that themselves don't have any conscious qualities at all how can you take a collection of them put them together in an arrangement and then all of a sudden the lights turned on all of a sudden this inner world emerges how can that possibly happen if it's just particles and the laws of physics and some say it can't just be particles in the laws of physics one of the proposals that go further will some say like David Thomas at NYU maybe particles like electrons do have consciousness proto consciousness a little piece of consciousness and you get enough of those particles together and you can pull the proto conscious qualities you can get the conscious experience that we all have inside of our heads right at this very moment now I'm not convinced by that proposal I totally understand the motivation for it because the puzzle is a significant one but I like to reflect back on an analogous puzzle that we now think that more or less we understand in the eighteen hundreds a similar question could and was asked how can lifeless particles can be arranged in a collection that somehow becomes animate transitions from inanimate that how could that possibly happen what was the answer that some put forward then it can't be that it can't just be the particles you need to inject that system of particles with something else the life force vitalism and without that the system of particles will not live but now having understood life at a greater level of fidelity than back in the eighteen hundreds very few perhaps no scientist speaks like that any longer we now look at the living object in the say yeah if the particles that the forces combine them to chemistry and biology and in a matter that we have not yet fully worked out you will get a living system nobody thinks that you need a life force any longer my own suspicion is that fifty a hundred a thousand years from now I don't know the duration we will look at consciousness and come to the same conclusion it's just particles and forces and that's all you need for the lights to turn on but the way you describe it isn't is one that reconciles with other forms of of thought around this and so like what I hear dissolving in your thought is this brain that has existed accurately or inaccurately of science versus religion science verses yeah other forms that it's in that reconciliation that we may find additional deeper truths here yeah so so I I I fully subscribe to that perspective you know there has been a long tradition of tension between science and religion especially in the last couple decades where there have been some of my scientific colleagues who've gone out in the world in a manner that basically tries to rid the world of religion and the argument typically is religion is something that we made up it is contradicted by our understanding of the physical world so it's time to grow up and let that perspective go and my view on that story is that judging religion bites capacity to explain the external world is using the wrong yardstick religion was not developed in order to be able to truly understand the external environment you will never use religion to calculate that electrons magnetic moment to ten decimal places that kind of question is in the sweet spot of physics it is not in the sweet spot of religion but there are other questions that aren't in the sweet spot of religion or let me talk more generally spirituality right if we try to understand our internal world our conscious experience how we engage with that external world then that kind of inward journey that spiritual journey is something that religion at least for some can offer a powerful guy you know there's a there's a great and and and profound book on religion that doesn't seem to be read as much today as it should be it's William James varieties of religious experience published in nineteen oh five based on twenty or so lectures that he gave in Scotland in nineteen oh two in nineteen oh three and here's a scientist a psychologist respected psychologist who goes through the kinds of religious experiences that exist in the world and the roles the important roles that those experiences playing by the end of the lecture by lecture twenty he sums it up in a way that is remarkably poetic he describes religion and spirituality is something that allows us to understand the terror and the beauty of phenomenon that allows us to deeply understand the the voice of the thunder the gentleness of the summer rain the sublimity of the stars and it's that inner capacity to feel the world as opposed to just lay out its nuts and bolts in the way that we physicists do that is deeply important and vital role for religion and there were two out in the world so to me that's another one of the stories that needs to be combined with in the collection to have a full understanding of the human experience who I'll just say like what you described that that feeling that emotion this the Serb blindness of the of the stars yeah that's what I get from science but when I get when I look up at the at the heavens outside in feel like the combined knowledge of of humanity across yes hundreds of years yes and it's that combined knowledge you know there's there's this wonderful poem of Walt Whitman that you're probably familiar with many are the learners astronomer right and in the you know I won't I won't quote it we get it wrong but the basic gist of the problem is the the person is speaking in the poem is in a lecture hall being lectured on the stars and the planets in the galaxy is then described how he begins to feel sick and bill by just looking at the equations in the mathematics so it leaves the lecture hall walked out into the darkness and just stares up into the night sky and and.
"damien" Discussed on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson & Darius Miles
"You hit the playoffs out of the gate. Okay see I was in range like arranges the logo. I was and again here man. Listen man you should've you. Should you should know rain. Ramush it but it's not like the wrinkles life free. What what made you like? You know coaches. Don't listen to Dan as like what made you. Just start shooting an and being comfortable with shot because that's accountable site like guys gotta actually Gordon you will have caught here is not the I put my feet on the three point line with you and and this is part of your game. Now I'm seeing all these gained sixty games all this stuff and you shoot network from the logo like what what. How is that at that much and rains into editor to your games? I mean I. I've always shot deep in High School College. I've always shot deep because in high school. I was the best player Iman Team in college. I was the best player so teams always trying to stop me so that was like the cleanest shot. I could get some time so I'll just shoot it from depots and then When I got league I think it was my my six year when we got swept by New Orleans in the playoffs was three C. And had home court. They swept us in nearby. Who just killing us. They was killing me like all he didn't show up and all that stuff but they was traveling me double teaming. Three bodies is low note. I couldn't I couldn't even get a shot off but still I wasn't vintages not try so I would just missing couldn't ongoing But then that summer I was like I GOTTA. I figured I'm OUTTA teams has gone keep doing this. And my trainer feel begging was like we gotta start training further out. We've gotTA develop your gain further out so you can get yourself more space. So we started off like he's doing foundation shooting so I started off shooting deep without jumping. No momentum is dip raise up and just put out jumping and then we started doing it off the bounce. Then we started moving into it and then we started doing catch and shoot quick releases just like under a second just firing and then we started doing shooting drills from that distance and then we started ending workouts doing autos drills from distant so it was like when. I was tired when I didn't have momentum when it was the end of the workout when I was coming back to shoot at night for second workout. We were just working at range. Just could be able to play from further out. They wouldn't have to be able to just take my space away so easy so like now teams. Try to do it now. They'll run to people at me but I'm so far out when they do it a lot more space or more around to cover so when they start running at me is easy pass or if they run me. I can get around one or two defenders over space on thousands really started after we got swept and I was like all right. We got starches working from further out. So it's been like two and a half years now where. I do it all the time like even during the season I still when I saw you last year at the USA thing. I was waiting for them to get done. 'cause I was about to shoot right before the playoffs they see does not found out. He's telling me he was up against some waters from facility. I say you know that's right so it was like just doing it during the season just constantly standing routine and just.

K. exiting the E. U. so certainly I think everybody in this whole negotiation process in Dublin would agree it's better for Ireland to have a stable governments to lead the country three about process not the last politics is politics the voters are given their verdict not spend we have this very complicated picture on resolving about is certainly not going to be easy Chris page it's not just an island that old certainties are coming under scrutiny this week saw an unusual cloud of uncertainty descend over German politics the woman angler medical had hand picked as her successor and a great crime Kambala or a K. K. resigned as leader of the governing CDU the Christian Democrats the move was raised all sorts of questions about the future direction of German politics as I've been hearing from Damien McGinnis in Berlin this latest crisis was ready Spock's by a local florist see she shows after votes in the eastern German state of Thuringia in which I'm peas in her policy I voted for candidates as premier of that state's also supported by the far right AFP this display needs that she lost control of her policy because one of the big round was going on within the center right CD you is whether to work with the following safety particularly in eastern German states like syringes or whether to keep this firewall gave the far right that we have right now so I KK stepping down as clearly as you say a very poor reflection on the leadership of the CD you but how much of a blow to the party and indeed to angler miracles supposed plans for a succession if anything the struggles of any potential successors show how indispensable under the necklace so personally speaking it hasn't really hits her very hard but what it does to damages under Michael's vision for her policy and for Germany because what time the mac was done what I leading Germany is ready for a policy to the sensor grounds and what's cook conservative critics want to do is really make a center right possible Conservative Party again on this is a big impacts on the country as a whole because this part is the biggest party in Germany it could well be in government next time and the question is is Germany's biggest policy does journeys next government become more conservative I'm potentially one day even work with the far right safety or does it potentially stay in the US and around the maybe even one day from
New opportunity to boost Indonesia-Australia economic ties - The Jakarta Post
"Few international problems in the post world war. Two era have proved difficult for our nation as development of friendly policy towards indonesia. Just think about it. Jakarta's annexation of west papua in nine hundred sixty to the attempted coup d'etat and successful counter-coup by the indonesian army that was nineteen sixty five the invasion of as. Taymor seventy five. The dili massacre ninety. One the east team or mission in ninety nine. And who can forget the controversies over terror. Attacks live cadillacs bullpens successive wives of boatpeople this spying revelations and drug trade and of course those executions so has president jarkko daito or jacuzzi or jacoby as he's known has. His visit marked a new era in australia. Indonesia relations this week to cowie was only the second indonesian leader to address a joint sitting of parliament and he came to camera bearing a gift. He's approval of the trade deal between our two countries. Greg feely is associate professor of indonesian politics at the australian national university's college of asia and the pacific and diming kingsbury is professor international politics at deakin university in melbourne. greg damian. Welcome back to our in. Thank you now damien. Does that you kelly visit this week. Does that maka a dramatic breakthrough in australia. Indonesia relations look it's a really positive sign and it does mock an improvement in relations but i don think in itself comprises an entirely new relationship. It's just a step in the right direction. Okay so the the relationship still presumably dogged by bitterness and suspicion but it was obvious support and even warmth towards education from both sides of politics gregg fairly. Yes that's right i think The y.`all would characterize it is the jacobi visa was building on the breakthrough which is the comprehensive economic partnership agreement. That was signed early last year. And what saw with dakota's visa was. He's personal preparedness and preparedness. He's government to really put its white behind the agreement. I think a lot of people think the agreement in pie terms is very good but the question is canopy implemented properly. Can the red type be cleared away in indonesia. Can we persuade australian businesses to invest more Generously in indonesia and i think the jacoby visa guy very positive signs for that still a lot of things to done for that The potential of that agreement to be realized but it was really good. Move in that direction. Again it's been said that. The many lingering suspicions profile in jakarta indonesians still resent l leading role insecure in a team os independence because it was more than twenty years ago. Yes i think One of the ironies here he said indonesia now has very good relations with east t- more and he's teamer leaders Fighted in fact when i go to jakarta and the strata is still has this legacy of suspicion towards indonesia. I think you have to back. Partly in history this great saints vulnerability that Many asians feel that logic countries or large countries around them at trying to split up their country to conduct. Bulkin is it and the ace taymor. Even though he's team always not part of the original borders of the dutch colony. Die still feel that as team will confirmed that Other countries have these designs upon the country and upon its unity and after his team. More focusing shifted to papa. This strategy may still want to divide papua dining. You've written a lot about west papua and at the heart of the standoff in two thousand and six paul showed that something like seventy five percent of australian supported independence for the former dutch colony. This why the indonesians are uneasy about estrada's position. He certainly one of the issues in the makeup of mistrust and complexity in the relationship There's there's been longstanding depths in jakarta's to either strang government doesn't do more to acquire pro-separatist Sentiment in australia. They believe the particularly the ngo sector has played a role in stirring up separatist sentiment in west. Papua and there is Continuing concern that australia has too much of a focus particularly on eastern indonesia which is also the poorest part of the country. Well how then do we bridge. These divides greg. I mean to. What extent is this new free. Try deal. This is the so-called indonesia australia comprehensive economic partnership agreement. Ten years in the making to what extent does that he'll these divisions. I don't know that it heals the divisions poseidon. I think many of the the list of things you you sit out at the beginning of the interview. I think we have always had the potential. I knew things like that to occur but one of the consistently underperforming parts of the bilateral relationship has been the economic ties and so this comprehensive agreement will hopefully see much more economic activity between the two countries and that in itself might provide some kind of deepest ability but if the economic relationship expand by site thirty to forty percents in the next few years diamond. Wouldn't the free try deal really mocking important development for the relationship a look. There's no question that it's an important step in in in strengthening relationship. This guy is back to what gareth evans was talking about in the nineteen eighties. Where he said we needed to add ballast to the relationship unbalanced. He meant if we can get a strong economic relationship between australia and indonesia implies than the rest of it will follow behind because there will be a an upfront primary interest in preserving the economic relationship. And that's always been a difficulty. In the relations destroy and strength companies have invested in indonesia but not to a great extent. The head found difficulties. There this free trade agreement certainly opens up more opportunity for investments and tried but again and again as greg has alluded to. I think the question will be. How much strategies is to take out this opportunity and whether or not they say the the problems of doing business in indonesia over combat is free trade agreement whether or not there's going to be impediments to a greater degree of engagement. My guests greg. Feely from new in camera and damien. Kingsbury from deacon in melvin. And here's a little fun fact. This is according to the australian this week. It was chris. Bowen the library from benca podcast on iran and between the lines. It was chris bowen in his shirt who walked away the most chuffed with these brave. Jacoby interaction we he. The president complimented bowen's flawless fluency in indonesian. Little known fact chris. Bowen speaks indonesian now. A few years ago china's president she addressed indonesia's legislature to great fanfare. So the fees guy. Now what's the nature of the relationship now between jakarta and beijing greg. There's a lot of similarities between indonesia's relations with china and distributors Janis niger economic partner for indonesia. It's also niger investor in the country indonesia's increasing the Pot of china's belt and road initiative. So it's getting a lot of development money. These increasing penetration of lodge chinese corporations building infrastructure for example hospitalized row link between the capital jakarta and the regional capital abandon So there's a. There's a lot of economic activity happening and president. She has very good personal relationship with prisoner jacoby but they're also tensions. One of the tensions is chinese fishing boat incursions into indonesian territorial waters In near the south china sea in the name of the island of tuna and that causes a lot of angst in indonesia sometimes confrontation between Nio vessels of both countries. Another problem is a fairly high level of underwent lying suspicion towards the chinese in indonesia so this often bubbles politically to the surface in indonesia and people say that indonesia is at risk of losing some sovereignty to the chinese and so this is always a break for a leader. Such as jacoby who badly needs chinese investment and the development expertise if he saying as Ext doing that excessively will then he will be attacked for that. Well could chana's rise than i mean. It's obviously threatening. The integrity of sovereign states around the region diamond could could china's roz helped draw camera and jakarta even closer. Yes look there's been a discussion now going back several years in canberra about a closest security relationship within the news yet it seems to be a natural hartman in the region Geography i think determines that to a large extent but our strategic interests similar in relation to china about countries want to have a strong economic relationship with china We want to have china's investments and tried to sell into china but we also want to limit china's expansion in the region strategic rich particularly in the south china sea and In relation to them turner islands which is at the southwest of the south china saying there is neither lapping climbed by china and indonesia. And that's what to the tensions of mid january this year. What we're seeing though is. Indonesia is welcoming china roman hand but in terms of economic growth and development but in terms of china's growing strategic runyon ambition. There's a great deal of skepticism. I think in indonesia as the reason chinandega familiar story. Now let's turn finally gentlemen to indonesia internally. Let's get your reaction to something. The indonesian journalist. Julia sirak osama. This is what she told my. Rn colleague andrew west. This week joey. His record on democracy and human rights has declined and in fact now many activists think that not just activists observers think that democracy indonesia has lowest point in twenty years. It is ironic since when we had the reform era after suharto stepped down. That was supposed to be the beginning of democratization in indonesia but that has opened up a pandora's box and released all the traditional religious conservatives and mainly religious groups has sacrificed human rights. And what he says in a book phobia and intolerance for the sake. Offline call stability. Indonesian journalist julia sura kasama on iran's religion and ethics program. This week diming kingsbury. Look i think that Jacoby has moved in a couple of areas which have raised eyebrows. About his commitment to a plurality and human rights particular around the issues of religion and religious tolerance and so on. But broadly. I think jacoby is an inheritor of the reform tradition particularly that started by cecilia among indiana and that he really is deepening and embedding democratic practice. If we some limitations around the edges. Yeah well greg failure. I mean it's often argued that indonesia the fourth because nation in the world. We tend to forget that. It represents a persistent triumph of democracy this the nation journalists big for a lot of activists when she says that the indonesian ideal of tolerance really has been destroyed. So i think it's probably i'll i think she's somewhat. This is always a matter of the bites. Don't mean any disrespect to julius Sort of kasuma but Under jacoby in fact. Religious tolerance has somewhat improved on democracy. Some of the things that jacoby has initiated have really harmed the quality of democracy and there are several things that are being discussed by. he's government wrought now and by the parliament which if implemented could be a considerable reversal. He wouldn't stop indonesia being a democracy. But it would reduce the quality of the democracy greg damian and important discussion. Thanks so much again for being on our end

Kevin Durant reveals when he knew he'd leave Warriors after last year
"Lot of these trades. Aides are confusing and Diangelo Russel. This is his fourth team now. and He's twenty three he's eight dynamite all star and so he kinda got thrown into the mix. Because if you're the if you're the the the warriors and you could get him in the process of losing durant you do that a hundred times out of one hundred. It's just the question. Is that if I told you at the time right that when they were losing him you know when they were losing durant and gaining him that it would turn into Andrew Wiggins and a top three protected first round pick. I think we would have said at the point in time. Okay I got it because you're already seeing the first blush results on NBA NBA twitter. That he's kind of playing the role of Harrison Barnes and the first championship run remember Harrison Barnes was the crucial member of that was and that wiggins is going to play that role. Livingston's not there anymore right so so he would be that guy. And if you're Steve Kerr you're like I can. Let's get to this guy if I'm coaching up. Three million green and his personality Wiggins of former number one overall here comes wiggins. I'm thinking he's thinking that and is now just think about it. Think about it next year. Are they open up in that beautiful jewel up in San Francisco. It's all filled up right and Curry Klay. Draymond Andrew Wiggins and number five stroll on the floor and number five could be the first overall selection in the draft left or the fourth overall selection in the draft. They could have all those guys showing up there next year and have the first and fourth overall picks in the draft tiredly possible
Hail to the Chiefs
"All right so this was an incredibly even matchup but at the end of the day a clear. Oh you're winner emerged Jaylo well and Shakira like let's let's give her due to Yemen Jaylo whatever. She's whatever over she's taking to look and move like that at fifty you know we can all take a lesson from her and And who knew she could move on a pole. It is kind of funny that you know. So how many years. After the wardrobe malfunction we now just have performers on stripper Poles. All right so let's talk about this remarkable game I What was the vibe in the stadium before kickoff? Yeah I mean listen. It's the Super Bowl right. People are excited. I will say that there were a lot more chiefs fans then niners fans and that was kind of to be expected. That's how it's been in Miami all week I think ESPN projected before the game that it was going to be sixty seven percent Kansas the city fans which would make it the most lopsided attendance in history and it really did man. It felt like achieves home game. You had the chance and you know it was a sea of red. Obviously because both nighters and she's fans where red but but chiefs fans definitely were taking over and you could tell when they did the introductory lineups? You could tell. Whenever they they showed chiefs players are coming through the tunnel the stadium which get loud And conversely a lot of booing being whenever the camera would focus on the niners. And you know we've talked a lot in the buildup to this game this week about Kobe. Bryant he just is looming over the world of sports so largely right now now and there was a beautiful tribute to him before the game began. Yeah so there was a moment of silence before America. The beautiful and national and the national anthem were song on Four Koby daughter Jonah and the other seven victims of the helicopter crash. Sure Sunday's they will never be for each of the teams Rosters were lined up on their own twenty four yard line. No Mosh to Kobe's number twenty four as the moment of silence happened and a few players were also wearing purple and gold cleats during warmups. All right so this was expected to be a close game and the first half was incredibly. Even what jumped out at you from that first half. Yeah I mean the first half was super even obviously. We went into to the second half tied at ten The first quarter kind of gave you a setup of how this of how you thought this game was going to go you know. Both teams had strong drives early San Francisco got the running game going out of the gate with deebo Samuel But despite controlling the ball for nearly six minutes in their opening drive that drive only ends in a field goal the chiefs then come back to answer with a really strong drive heavily favoring Running back Damien Williams play action was really working for them in four achieves team. Who's WHO's running game isn't nearly as strong as San Francisco's? This was pretty key for them on that particular drive third and eleven and Patrick mahomes shows off the legs he takes off off and he appears to get the first down but then he fumbles after a hard hit pushes him back. So it's now fourth and one and Andy Reid. has this decision to make. Does he go for word on further on fourth and one it's early in the game. San Francisco's defense was the best in the league. This season on stopping fourth and one And kind of going into this game you know you don't really ever know what he's GonNa do on fourth down but he ends of going for it. And it's absolutely right call Damian Williams gets the first on a short run and Patrick mahomes eventually takes it into the end zone. Himself for the touchdown and the chiefs go up seven to three and early in the second. Quarter Jimmy Garoppolo threw an interception reception and the chiefs and up on a drive with another fourth and one and they go for it again. Yeah and it ends up being the right call again now. Let's remember that Andy. He read only went for it on fourth down ten times in the regular season and here he's gone for it twice in the first twenty minutes of the game so clearly. It's the Super Bowl. He's putting everything on the table and it ends up being the right. Call it results in points. The chiefs the cheesecake field goal. And they go up ten to three okay so at this point Jimmy. Garoppolo has just throw an interception. Forty niners are struggling a bit and it looks like they need a big drive to get back into the game and they get it they did. The the very next drive is really a statement driver San Francisco. The run game really got going. The five straight strong runs including a touchdown throw. Oh a play action pass to a very unlikely hero. Kyle used check the fullback. We got a fullback touchdown in the Super Bowl who also became the first player from Harvard? Ever to score touchdown in the Super

As far as the Kansas City chiefs observe number one they cannot stop the won their thirtieth against the against the rush and the AH THE DENVER broncos with Philip Lindsay their rushing attack it's really coming on the Kansas City Chiefs Dick Tom Tom Possession they'll only it's only at twenty twenty one minutes so that isn't good when you're talking about achieves defense that's just like a nose bleed right now so they've lost two straight both their home and then you're going to begin the Denver Broncos team but division rival that can expose one of the things that you just is not good at so this this is GonNa be very interesting to watch when you talk about the Kansas City chiefs are we looking at a team that would will lose to doing the Patriots if they don't get their act together or you of the mindset that it could be far more detrimental than that they might not be ended up being one of the top three teams in the AFC if they don't fix the ability to defend the run this situation forget that the new England ages for right now this is a situation where they might not be wanted you know one of the top two teams as far as seating is concerned don't play offs I mean you're talking about team that's lost two straight You lose this gay man and I think you only one game ahead of the next anybody division and I think that's the Oakland raiders so you know this isn't that like last year where the Kensington Cheese had number one seed in the AFC this team that's her I think defensively has been more sable what's been going on last year the can't stop the run Patrick Mahomes that the league MVP from two thousand Eighteen is is horrible he can't move around as well as he been accustomed to so they got some issues going on and it's GonNa be it's GonNa be a tough and grimy and all her Damien woody right here with Steven.

In New Orleans who still a pretty good team was out drew brees okay one best quarterback for the masterfully playing with a backup quarterback and using taste them heal and teddy bridgewater and you mean to tell me if you're decent health the New Orleans saints without a touchdown and you still lose. Isn't that an indictment on your quarterback who Ooh it wanted to make him the highest paid quarterback in the national football league. That's all I'm saying and I guess what I'm saying response. That's is that the man is one has been to playoffs in three years. He's one of the vision both times and in three years he's been an all pro along. That's he's never missed the game.

I'm looking at the fact that tyreek Hill has been out since week one when he got hurt returning has returned to practice. I'm I'm looking at the fact that the New England Patriots look very very vulnerable and suspect on offense Gronkowski's retired. Antonio Brown has been exiled you you Netam's playing hurt. you know Josh Gordon is relatively inconsistent and Sony Michelle's not even averaging three yards a carry. I'm of the mindset that to me this this division. This conference belongs to Kansas City. I can't especially with Steve Caskey. Outdo this field their field goal kicker WHO's out with the HIP injury.

New England Kansas City is almost like the the new New England Indianapolis Robbery because it just seems like those two franchises are just a step above everybody else in the AFC right now so until until I see otherwise watching those two and then the rest of the pack are we doing a disservice to the Los Angeles chargers or even Indianapolis Colts or even the Houston Texas by now putting them in the mix I won't we're not doing a disservice which is speak in fact you know. I'm just speaking matter of factly right. Now I mean when you say when you look at the Patriots you know the defenses dominating you know the office is still a work in progress but I know when it comes to you know Tom Brady and bill though they'll figure it out and they'll they'll be playing much better as Ugo goes along and with the Kansas City chiefs again. They're primarily weapon return yet imagine this office when Cari Kill Looking back Mark God it's going to be it's going to be something to behold so to me. Those are the two teams and if see and everyone else is playing catchup. dammit would would appreciate you looking forward to talking to you next week. You take it easy right all right you too right well known would've idea was even a he has..
