"And I did in the piece I wrote. But they don't lose draft status because they spend $250 million. So they should be fine. They could be fine there. They're just not going to. They're just not going to be that team. The year after year after year, I think they're going to be hovering around two 33 this year. And then they'll, you know, as that goes up, that'll be the point where they hover around. Do they go over? Yes, they will go over occasionally. But they're going to go back down occasionally. It would be very disappointing if they go as far down as they have in recent years. I think they need to be top ten consistently. I don't know. I don't know if they will be just top ten consistently. That'd be, I think that'd be ideal. Ideal actually would be top 5, right? They should be top 5. Their top 5 market, their top 5, that they have everything they need to be a top 5 team at payroll wise. So yes, this is a full on transition year, but it's kind of the bridge to like, let's try and put a team out there that can compete and then in 24 25 is when we really start. And then there's no more down years because we've built this system. We have the right player development in place. We have the right amateur scouting in place. That's their vision. They didn't get that done. The first time around, they believe they've corrected some things, especially in the player development department. So when any down year in payroll in their eyes should be should be countered by the fact that we have all this young talent coming up. So yeah, we may have gone down to 200 million in payroll or whatever it may be if it's lower than that, who knows. But we have XYZ players that are all coming up from the system that are just going to rake or mow down the opposition, whatever it may be. I think that's their vision for beyond 24 and 25. But if they're not, if they're not a powerhouse by 25, then it just didn't go right. They didn't execute their plan because I think that is, they believe that they should be the team when we when we're doing this in 2025, if I'm not talking about this is a world team that should win the World Series or should compete for the World Series and they're up there with team X, Y and Z, then it didn't go according to plan. Well, we usually end these by asking what would constitute a successful season for the team. But I think we've covered it. As you noted to you, you hope for a wild card, but if you don't get a wild card, then you hope for progress in these other areas, prospects coming up, strides on the pitching side, some clarity about ramping up and about getting that championship core in place. So now we will just wait and see whether it happens, and you can find out whether it happens by reading so out of his work at the athletic and finding him on Twitter at his name Sahara Sharma, always a pleasure, always informative. Thank you very much. Of course, thanks so much for having me. All right, Meg, I don't know if you know this, but we are now more than halfway through the team previews. Wow. 16 out of 30. Wow. We're getting there. They fly by, man. So let's wrap up with the past blast, which comes from 1976 and from our frequent past blaster, David Lewis, who is an architectural historian in baseball researcher based in Boston. And David writes, this is a more well-known story, maybe than most of our past west, but too fun to skip and I agree. The White Sox work on their short game. During spring training in 1976, baseball is constant innovator and I might add promoter. Bill Veck announced that his Chicago white sacks would be making a fashion statement in the coming year for select games in the 1976 season, the south siders would ditch their traditional uniform pants in favor of shorts. As reported in the March 23rd, 1976 issue of the Orlando sentinel, the change was made for comfort and novelty, as well as hope for a new image that would stir up the imagination and interest of the fans, makes the fed sort of horny almost. That sure does. She can't blame him. As far as team reaction, according to White Sox public relations manager Dan unferth, most of the team likes them, except for the heavier guys, I guess if you're portly, you don't want short shorts to make it more obvious. Did have faith in the long term viability and popularity of the shorts suggesting we may even start a new trend on those hot days of July and August and Dallas, the other teams may be wishing they had shorts on two. The first appearance of the shorts would not come until August 8th, a game in which the White Sox defeated the royals 5 to two reportedly Bill Veck himself modeled the uniform for sports writers prior to the game. The White Sox were their shorts two more times in 1976 going two in one overall before retiring, the short lived fashion experiment well done, David that was a mega Ben quality play on words there, which is not necessarily a compliment. So a couple misconceptions, I think, first is the idea that they just were these things that whole season, right? They actually only wore them in three games in that season. But also, I was under the impression that one of the reasons why they discontinued this practice was that it was tough to slide in shorts as you would imagine that it would be, right? But that seems to be fake news to some extent here. I'm reading a column by Paul Lucas of uni watch at ESPN and he wrote about this, he said, many fans mistakenly think the socks couldn't slide in the shorts for fear of cutting up their knees, but that wasn't the case. The players had little pads tucked under the tops of their socks just below the kneecap, which apparently provided enough protection to allow for sliding. I don't know. I mean, there's still some exposed skin there, but I do see what it means and I'll link to the pictures. Lucas continued, you might not think those little pads offered much protection, but the numbers don't lie. According to the archive box scores, the Sox stole 8 bases without being caught in their three shorts clad games. So the pads must have been doing the job, either that or the opposing catchers were too busy laughing to throw anyone out. So that's interesting. And they won two of the three games so that they played. And yet this did not catch on and the White Sox did not continue doing it. There were other teams that tried this minor league teams primarily in the 50s and 60s and 70s. So it was not solely a wait Sox idea, but again, even though it seems to have gone just fine for the White Sox. It wasn't like, oh, we've made a horrible mistake, and this was terrible. But it just never continued anyway. So, I don't know, maybe we should consider bringing back the shorts. I don't see a strong reason against it at least based on this as David called it short lived experiment. I still think it would be bad to slide in shorts. You would think. You would think. I just think it would be bad to slide in shorts. I support, you know, we support the horni to some extent of baseball. Like within bounds, you know, we don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable, but you know, we also think that there's room between the length of the pant leg as it is and what it could be, shall we say. But I still think it would suck to slide in in shorts. I think it would be, you know, it's like, you don't want to, have you ever fallen down at the beach?

"Yeah, Yuri, I've seen him, I got CM pitch, I think, three times total over the last two years, and each time I watched him, I was blown away. I mean, when you walk in, he's 19 years old. He doesn't turn 20 until I think April 15th, I believe it's his birthday. And he was solid and double-A last year. He's 6 8, 220 pounds, one of the few guys who I've seen who when standing next to saint Alcantara makes sandy Alcantara looks small. And he has a similar repertoire to sandy. He has fastball hits the upper 90s. He has a change up that I believe I saw once the sky reports yeah, I believe it was like a 50 or 60% swing in this right with the change up last year pitching all the entire season in double-A. He has a slider that he's working on that he's trying to tighten up a little bit and he has a curveball and he has a curve ball that's been a good breaking pitch for him as well. So he has a four pitch mix. He's not even 20 years old yet and he's looking like he'll get to the big league at some point this year. He wants to be in the big leagues for opening day. I just with the way that they're with the options they have in terms of their starting pitching, I don't see that happening, but I feel like at some point down the road this season we're going to see Yuri Perez make his debut. And yeah, he's from the way the way I best like describing sandy Alcantara when I talked with him the other day and asked him what it's like watching Yuri a 19. Sandy goes, I was nowhere near this level when I was 19. I was in high a, I was a decent prospect. I was throwing hard, but I wasn't throwing like that. I wasn't throwing the way that he's doing it. I wasn't as mature with understanding my pitch mix and what I need to do with which batters at which time as Yuri is now. And then now with Yuri basically being understanding and saying to take him under his weighing, you're seeing the dynamic of Yuri now understanding what he has to do between starts to be ready and be more mature on that front to be ready to go when his name is called. So to wrap up, what would constitute a successful season for the Marlins in 2023 at the peak league level and beyond? I would say for 2023 and it's going back to what they've been trying to say every year and they've been unsuccessful either they need to be competitive. I don't necessarily think they need to make the playoffs this year. I feel like they need to be in the hunt because I mean you look at this the division. They could get 85 wins have their first winning record in a full season and goodness knows how long and still finished fourth because of just how stack the mets, the Phillies and the braves are. But if they're able to be in that 500 cups cost hopefully above it and say, look, we're here and with the way the roster set up basically every main guy they have, whether it's guys who they have been working with for years or guys they acquired this off season. Basically all of their main guys are under control beyond this year. So if they're able to show what they're able to do this year and be in the fight and then continue the build on the group that they've already assembled, that basically gives them that stepping stone that they were hoping to have earlier in the brute Sherman ownership era and finally show the optimism whether it happens that's obviously still to be determined, whether jazz worked on center helps and that helps them, that's to be determined, but they have the pieces there. If a few things, if a few dominoes fall in their direction, they have the potential to finally start turning the corner. It's just a matter of turning that potential into the actual results. Well, you can find out whether they succeed in doing that by following Jordan's coverage all season long at the Miami Herald. You can also find George McPherson on Twitter at J McPherson 1126. Jordan, thanks again. Thanks so much, Ben. Thanks so much, Meg, always great chatting with you both. All right, I'm going to give you a pass blast here. It's just me. We recorded early this week, so we didn't yet have the past blast from our past past consultant when I was recording with Meg. This past blast comes from 1971 and from David Lewis and architectural historian and baseball researcher based in Boston and we're back to the late eccentric X a's owner Charlie Finley. This time, David writes, Finley is arguing balls and strikes. He's moved on from gold bases at this point. In 1971, Charlie Finley once again brought a proposed rule change to Major League Baseball on March 16th, 1971, Finley's Oakland a's played Cleveland in a spring training game featuring the experimental rule, a count with three balls and three strikes. The plan clearly did not go well as a UPI article reporting on the story ran with the headline, baseball's experiment doomed for oblivion, Finley hoped that the new count would speed the game up, but in practice the rule had the exact opposite effect, leading to an increased number of walks in what was referred to as tedious games of pitch and catch. During the trial run, the two teams produced 23 total walks in a game one ten to 7 by Cleveland as another failed attempt at baseball's long history of trying to speed up the game thinly abandoned this idea shortly thereafter. We get this sort of question or suggestion sometimes too, just changing the number of balls or strikes. And there might be better ways you could do it. But I prefer to try to fix things within the current system of four balls and three strikes in finlay, of course, supported a pitch clock too, so he was ahead of his time in trying to speed things along. Also, I have a second pass blast for you here. This is one I came up with and really I probably should have done it in episode 1970, but it's still applies to 1971. One of the members of our Facebook group recently posted a thread and said the MLB logo before the 1969 batter logo that is still in use today.

"But this is just a really thorough and perceptive and adeptly reported account of everything that was going on and how everything led to the scandals that you brought to the surface. So it's just great. It's really great and I hope people will check it out and pick it up. It's out now everywhere you can find books, winning fixes everything, how baseball's brightest minds created sports biggest mess. Congrats again, Evan and thank you. Thanks. I have one thought as you can for one more thought. Sure. Of course. If the sign stealing doesn't happen, the culture stuff is still there. In a weird way, I wonder who believes it. If you don't have the science stealing blow up, and maybe even if you remove the taubman stuff, you know, because we're so fixed on the result being the thing. And you know, I remember, this isn't in the book, but I remember right after the Astra's one in 17, I talked to somebody. And they were telling me how screwed up the invites to the parade were, like, the team was being stingy with certain people. Little nickel and diming stuff, right? And it was representative to them of like, you know, even in the moment you win, there's just still stuff behind the scenes that people don't see and aren't aware of. And it's kind of a, it's a little existential for me. It's there. There's all this stuff that goes on behind the scenes and very often doesn't make the narrative and yeah, that's where my head is at tonight. Yeah. You can be efficient and still be dysfunctional, right? I still want to know more about HA breaking the monitors though. That's my maiden fascination from the entire socket H sabotaging the monitors multiple times, but that never actually stopped just kind of that's just the weirdest part of the entire thing to me, which you do address in the book. Yeah, yeah. He did not go to the level of the team wide demonstration. She broke the monitors, but it was never this definitive exclamation point that he should have made. All right, well, I hope Ken was not calling you to break some other massive story while we were interviewing I love that you mentioned in the book that it's like a reporting superpower is like when your colleague is Ken Rosenthal and you know that you're only going to get someone on the phone one time potentially then you have can make that call just because he has the cache of Ken Rosenthal. So why not have him be the one to make it the request? So I hope it was nothing pressing and I guess we could sidebar about which asterisk front office members are the cast from andor because I've been thinking about that the entire time. That's good. But left all day, that's good. Which of them are in the last of us, because that's a show I'm actually up to date on. Yes, well, you got to catch up on indoor two. This is good, but it's scary. It is scary. Yeah. Yeah. Big scaredy cat. All right, let's wrap up with the past blast, which comes to us from 1969, and also from David Lewis, who is an architectural historian and baseball researcher based in Boston. Now, before we get to David's past blast, I have one that caught my eye because Sal bando passed away recently a longtime really excellent third baseman and also after he stopped playing a pretty successful baseball executive to. And bando, like you could make a Hall of Fame case for him. He's not the leading third base snub. There are many, but he's 16th all time on the third base jaws list. He's right between buddy bell and dick Allen on there, though dick Allen was not a third baseman as regularly as Salvador was. He's just above Evan Longoria and just above current Nolan Arenado, who still adding to his case, of course, but that's the kind of player Saab bando was really good like around the buddy bell Ken Boyer range a little bit below Greg nettles. Just a really solid, very good at the very least type player. And when he passed away recently, what caught my eye is that his obituaries mentioned that Joe DiMaggio had played a part in his breakout. So The New York Times obit says bando was initially touted as a defensive talent and he struggled early on trying to hit big league pitching, he credited Joe DiMaggio, then an executive and occasional hidden coach for the athletics with getting him to close up his stance and keep his head down to hit for more power. The sporting news reported in 1969, I would guess that that obit was pulling from his saber bio because his saber also mentions that bando said that and that it came from that 1969 sporting news article. And I was fascinated by that because I love stories of players reinventing themselves at the major league level, especially when it comes from a former superstar giving them a tip and giving them the one weird trick that they need to unlock some latent potential. So I was intrigued by the story and I looked up the 1969 sporting news article and I am much less convinced now than I was that Joe DiMaggio played an important role in south antos breakout, though I suppose it is possible. A lot of people don't know that Joe DiMaggio was with the a's in the late 60s. He kind of came out of retirement to get a fully vested MLB pension or at least that was part of his motivation and he was a uniformed coach for those seasons and also a front office executive and so he did do some working with players. And the 1969 article does say those who watch the a's last year noted at the start of the season that bando was standing closer to the plate with his right foot nearly in back of it. This worked well for a while, but the pitchers began to catch on. I was getting jammed on everything, Sal disclosed, then Joe Dee told me to close up my stance. However, it continues, this, of course, refers to Joe DiMaggio coach and executive vice president of the ace, he drafted his little hint to bando in Cleveland and Sal accepted the advice a few days later in New York on May 20th. He lined out and doubled twice the next day he was three for 5. So I think if this tip had happened prior to the 1969 season, I'd be more convinced, but as it was, if you look at his splits just for that 1969 season, when his big offensive breakout happened because he was kind of a light hitter prior to that. But if you divide it before and after the DiMaggio tip in May that he integrated, then it's not as convincing because entering the game when he incorporated this tip. His season to date OPS was 8 82, his rest of season OPS was 8 85. He homered in 5.6% of his plate appearances that season prior to the tip and 3.9% of his play appearances after the tip. So it didn't seem like he actually did better. His power breakout had happened early that season before he got this tip from DiMaggio. So sadly that makes it a little less compelling to me. So I don't know if we can credit Joe D for the Sal bando breakout. But I'd like to think so. It's possible, of course, that dimension could have given bandura a tip at some other time. Maybe he worked with him in spring training, who knows, or that early season power surge might not have lasted and the hitters might have caught up to him because he did face a bunch of expansion teams early in that 69 season and he'd hit some of his 8 homers to that point off of those expansion teams, although you'd figure that the weather would probably be colder at that point as we discussed it's called even in Arizona right now relatively speaking. So simply speaking.

"You know, I've heard his name mentioned from time to time, but it's not like, you know, there's been any real serious reporting about teams exploring trades for him and them looking to deal him away. So I mean you could look at that like their their opportunities out there. Nobody ever thought we were getting Kevin Garnett. We got them opportunities. When you look and you you talked about players that you have. Yeah. I remember some people are screaming at me saying, oh, you know, you don't want to get this guy because he's this age and you don't want to do this. And it's like, for a while everybody was going up and down, said, Damian Lillard wage coming here. Yeah, and everybody said, well, you'd have to give up ground for him. I said, okay, well, know his age. She's right age and well, you're definitely shortening your window doing something like that. But this is what I said. I said, how old was Kevin Garnett when you got him? A little different. Wasn't it was right around. Oh, how old was he when he got the same age? Yeah. The thing about David Lewis to me is he's a generational guard. Sure. They're they're they're they're not a lot of those in this league that you look at as a generational gar. And on top of that there's a contrast between him and taking him when it comes to the mean Spirit Dame Lillard was step on your mom's hand. If it was that a milligram. She he went, he was set up on the day of fingers and then go to the basket. I'm not sure if you know, where we have our players right. Now. How many times have they hooked up the opposition? True drives me freaking Bonkers. Well, I guess, I guess what I would ask you though is that you know with like let's let's go to Fantasyland, you know. Yeah just for Giggles save. The Celtics were able to move Jaylen Brown plus because it's not just Brown a 1,000 plus for Damian Lillard. So you're you're you're figureheads, you know, the heads of the snake or Lillard and Tatum and then you've got whatever you've got around them. Are they Contender? I don't think they are.

"Would never if it were. You know maybe not so much mental health. But that's coming into light and were acceptability but we would never suffer through cancer some horrific health issue. no one would make it your fault. Your shaming embarrassment yet. During the pandemic people lost their jobs at no fault of their own businesses folded savings. Were gone and it still didn't give people permission to really talk about that lack of money problem. And how do you get out of it and the problem is if you're not talking about it there's no way to get out of it. And then the messing middle that affects. Everyone is the irrationality. And i know you had my good friend. David lewis on your show talking about all these different ways that irrationality can trip us up regardless if we have money or a lack of money so it's just realizing that we have these biopsies. And how can we work around them again. I mentioned at the beginning. I have my poor kid syndrome as never going to go away. So i have to mitigate it. I have to automate my savings. I have to make sure that. I don't have a lot of money. Left in my bank account at the end of the month. I i always have to do things to trick myself because that's never going to go away. I've certainly made peace with that. But i love spending. I'm impulsive so it's really knowing yourself as well and then knowing your partner at the very very frugal partner so me that is something where i do have some balance in my life is i tried to get him to spend to get me to time out. So she's your spouse carefully. Well yeah such good self awareness for yourself. I like you really are clear that hey you you have these tendencies and biases to your words suspend but you up automations and strategies to to work with it and not avoided are neglected are living chain. That i spend much is what it is. I just have to do this. So i think that's really really interesting for a lot of us. We think like oh no. I shouldn't be spending like this. You're just like that's the way i am. I just now automate my savings in combat that absolutely so my last question. I asked most people this question and perhaps round two we can sit on my front porch. And how glass of wine or beer. But let's say you're you're ninety five years old and you're not on a front porch in at all maybe an emigrant but he could be anywhere in the world. That is a peaceful place at the end of life. And you're sitting on this front porch and you're looking out at the mountain the edmonton st wherever you are but it has to be peaceful and your task yourself with writing the letter to whoever wants to read it on what you've learned to have a healthy relationship with money. What would be the theme letter. Wow that's a really great question. I probably wouldn't be anywhere peaceful for long all shown something office. I'm mountaintop on some topic. If it's not money. I'm hoping to go into neuroscience and in my late fifties. So what would it be there. I want people to know about money. I think it's really knowing yourself. And knowing that money or a lack of money is the energy of where you are at the time and that you can change it that you can absolutely change it that it's an inner game. It's all about your worth and do you deserve to be here. Yes you do. And that was questions that i struggled in my twenties. I didn't feel. I deserve to be then. I didn't feel that. I deserve to be places because that was that poor kid syndrome again. Stay small stay small. So i want people to be as big as mountaintops but that takes work. Here's where it is. Here's the last analogy. I'll leave you with that and want people to know about money figure out what kind of financial house you want to be the really really clear about it. Do you want a simple home. Just a simple home. You know like you want to just work on nine to five. And that's okay and you want to be there for kids and you don't really need to mass lot. That's great. do you want something a little bit. Bigger like an apartment building or do you want like what i want. An office tower a skyscraper when it comes to finances once you determine what it is now what you have to figure out how deep that foundation is going to be and don't cheat yourself. This is why lottery winners or people that get a lot large inheritance. They lose it all because they got a skyscraper on the foundation of a teeny tiny little house so be really honest of what kind of financial structure you want and go after it but realize the bigger you go the bigger that foundation needs to be dug so as you create more of that energy more of your skeletons and feelings and i'm gong. Terribleness is going to come up. And you're gonna have to deal with that or you're gonna fall down so either. Stay with the house and be cool with that or the apartment building or do aim like i do high but realize you can have to dig really deep to well. Awesome not is fantastic to end that. I think that foundation is so important. So thank you for sharing. All of your insights. Kelly i feel like we blinked and our time win over. We could talk for a day straight.

And it's amazing when you look at what's happened in the last year this like with curved over and see and dance rating and there's been people that have been made you know billionaires various investments and i good and bad. I think it's the people that can't shake arrest and vacant investments and you know how a financial like that it allows the plainfield field someone financially against some situations. Generally i think instead gets negative especially young people and social media and chat. And i think it's just easier as buying some retire and it's it's not bad. Yeah the whole play. Nothing else said. It brings more awareness to the importance of financial biased decisions. I don't you when i was bombed years old. I didn't know what cryptocurrency was third. Stop or and my kids are around at age They see this on on talk their their thinking might so there is sort of a silver lining. I think so that off. Twelve years old. And they're talking about it certainly no not me a twelve. You know i had preet banerjee and david lewis from be works. We were talking about game. Stop and david said something. Would just you know i thought it was wrong. I think is david or just basically said this is just legalized gambling. And it should be called that. So that people aren't misconstrued that i'm investing not investing as speculation up nuclear become you know wildly wealthy or or liz van and again. It's hard to as a as a financial adviser. I know i had where with people about things like that. And you hear a story of action being. Eat a bunch of money honest. Yeah there's going to be blue. Who do but generally speaking. We'll have everybody. You know getting wealthy overnight. Investing in speculative stocks are fokker. Caesar there's always gonna be some liars that generally speaking the best way to accumulate.

"Light of God's prophetic word. Now here with his challenge for Christian Americans to defend faith and freedom is David Lewis. Christian Greetings to one and all this is Reverend David Lewis with in defense of Truth, the radio Ministry of the couple Bible Presbyterian Church. God bless you, each one, especially the mothers who are tuned in to the broadcast. Today we are broadcasting early in the morning. Here on Mother's Day, and I always want to be thankful for all the moms and expressed that to all the moms, obviously You have to be pro life of your mother, meaning you have given birth, And I'm thankful for my pro life mother who went home to be with the war just a few short months ago. 96 years of age, So I have been blessed in my life. Not everyone gets to have a mother as long as I have 70 years and I don't take that. Lightly. Don't take you for granted. And again. I know the Lord has blessed me beyond measure because of that. No. I was looking at the 31st. Of Proverbs, which, of course, is the The proverb on the virtuous woman. And it's written by a man named manual and not much is known about ma'am. You will accept that he was a king. In the kingdom of Massa M. A. S s A, which Was located at the time in northern Arabia. And we know that he was a king, and he had received wise teachings from his mother. The name manual means devoted to God so his mother taught him well brought him up. It appears in the nurturing admonition of the board, and he is sharing that And of course, he speaks about what a good wife is. In verses 10 through 31. Of the text, but just some thoughts on the reading of some or problems rather chapter 31 you know, where is not every virtuous woman Becomes a mother. You can make the case that every mother is virtuous, at least in the sense that she chose to give her child the gift of life again. Every mother is Pro life. And so we're grateful for that. The text in proverbs 31 is also a primer for any mother on how to role model motherhood for her own Children. Or really, for anyone else who may be watching or who may be be reading the text. Some will say no woman can attain. All of that. It is unrealistic to which I would answer. Well, that's fine. But don't forget Sanctification takes a lifetime. And if you're hearing me today, then your lifetime isn't over yet. So there's still more time for you if your mom to be sanctified and in this regard At the very least, it is certainly a model that every mother should want for her Children to say. Maybe my mother couldn't be all that for me. But maybe with God's grace. I could be that. For my Children. We also need to remember that our purpose in life as a man or woman. It's not defined fame and fortune, but to seek out God's will and again as a woman. Study God's example of the virtuous woman and some if I keep called it some and proverbs 31 see how he might use you in similar fashion. The woman in this proverb finds her interest and her rest in her husband's comfort. Let me just say that that should be very comforting to the Children as well. You can't really appreciate the quietness and well being of the home. Until you have been in one that isn't I've talked to people down through the years who have been raised in Let's just say less than ideal circumstances. And it's like a battlefield to go home. You know, they hate to leave school in the afternoon and go home and Face two battles that are going on there. So it's it's comforting for Children as their growing up to have some quietness to have some well being at home. I also think the highest compliment a man compatriot, his mother is in the choosing of a wife. I'm old enough to remember And many of you who listened to our broadcast fall into the same category. We are old enough to remember the words of a song that was popular. Back in my grandparent's day, so I'm going back into the early part of the 20th century. You remember the words? Perhaps I want a girl just like the girl who married Dear old dad. That would be quite a tribute. I would think to your mother if you grew up with a mother who could do it all or seemingly do it all. Keep Dad happy. Keep the house tended to keep the kids content. Why would you want a wife like that, too? Of course. I know we're in the year 2021. And it happened a lot long before this, of course, with the Women's rights movement. And what did Rush Limbaugh used to call them? The feminazi? He's I mean, they really got, uh they went off the charts didn't day with what they were trying to accomplish. So I don't know how many women mothers included. Want to stay home and raise their Children today? Some do And and I encourage that and thank God for the ones ones who do that. And I think, finally a point to be taken from Proverbs 31. Regarding the woman in the proverb is that her conduct is what, surely important. It's proper conduct that leads to accomplishment, which in turn Encourages emulation from her Children. This is a mother's responsibility, remembered to train up a child in the way she should go so that when she is old, she not only will not depart from it. She will entire train up her Children in like manner, and we know how easily things can can get into a cycle. We often see the negative aspect. Of poor family cycles in the inner cities where many Children If not most are raised in one parent households. It's usually the absence of a father. The mother has to either work. Several jobs, or perhaps she is getting some type of government assistance. And Children, Of course. See all of this. Perhaps there is some addiction problems going on and and again. This cycle is is not hard to learn. Especially when you're young. And before you know it, you have teenage pregnancy and the home And then there's a third generation living there. And it just continues. It just continues to duplicate itself. Over and over. You can't break the cycle. Well again. This is what we're saying should be the correct cycle. The biblical A guideline that is given to us here as far is raising up the child and the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And then when that child grows up, she will not depart from it. And she won't turn train up her Children like matter, and that cycle exists the I mean, you just have to get it started. And of course, they haven't moored in the center of everything. Is is the main reason that it will work You've you've got to put the board first. And when you can teach your Children that and not only teach them that, but show the by example. Too many people are quick to say, you know, do as I say. Not as I do, but that's Children aren't stupid, right? They pick up on this fairly quickly and so practice what you preach. And it will go a long way. Before I lead the subject of the family, speaking of moms and dads and Children, and this is somewhat related, so we'll segue way into it. I looked at a genetic study Ah, while ago And the study concluded that all Europeans living today are related to the same set of ancestors who lived 1000 years ago. And in fact, they claim that you would not have to go back much further than that 1000 years. To find it. Everyone in the world is related to each other. To which I just ask one question. Really? Really. You're you're just discovering this. Don't you love it when the scientific world which is often at odds with the Bible finally concedes to what we have known to be true all along. Well. This after mention study based its conclusions on a survey of genetic sequences Found in the D n a coding of 2000 people stretching from Ireland to Turkey s O from Far west as you could go in Europe all the way over to The entrance into Asia. And covers quite a bit of land. It covers quite a few people, but I'm telling you, they could have saved a lot of time by going to the ninth chapter of Genesis. For God told Noah and his three sons to be fruit for multiply and to replenish the earth, the earth by the way that had just been completely destroyed. Oh, Forms of life had been destroyed by the flood. So, looking back at Noah and his three boys, All Europeans are descended from Noah's son, J. Fife and all the world today. Again. Just go to J fits. Father Noah All the world today can claim him know as their patriarch. We find the same biblical truth being born out in the area of human life. Today. We're sonograms have proven to this abortion friendly world that babies are alive inside your mother's womb. So once again, God's word is proven to be true. God's word will always Be proven to be true. Amen. I just wish more people would read through the Bible..

I have enough introspection tells me that i am some in and incompatible est andy possible so i need to create a new category but but but you use compatible list I want to go into another topic that you've written Written about and you have people that came out recently entitled killing time again and you say this i have argued that even if type have this metaphysically possible does some things i would not be able to do. And scientists have used this idea that This contradiction that if you go back and kill you again. Law there that is. That's not going to work and so and so you can go back in time but view is that it is actually possible. But then they won't be able to do certain things said idea exactly right. S and so soon hunky come Suboxone basis for this. This argument okay. This is slightly complicated. I just talked to explain a little bit of the background. ever since. nineteen seventy six a brilliant philosopher. Probably the smartest philosopher of the twentieth century. He died prematurely. David lewis published a paper defending the possibility of time travel. It is interesting that he did this a good ten or twenty years before. Physicists started talking seriously about it any case he succeeded. He actually succeeded in convincing most of the philosophers so think about time travel that there is no logical objection to it so this was against the background of certain views about the nature of time. Roughly view physics take seriously the space time view and he made all sorts of objections. But the one that seems to with everyone has to do with freedom but we have to be a bit careful. Here we all agree that if you go to the past to the actual past where say your grandfather did not die when he was twenty but lived to have your dad. And eventually you. You're not going to do it.

"In the light of God's prophetic word. Now here with his challenge for Christian Americans to defend faith and freedom is David Lewis. Christian. Greetings, Everyone. This is Reverend David Lewis with in defense of Truth, the radio Ministry of the couple Bible Presbyterian Church. We are in Baltimore. Wherever you may be. I pray the Lord is blessing you today. You still have air to breathe, So that's a start. God gives us everything we take so much for Brandon, don't we? But he could stop all of us in an instant. Your next heartbeat could be your last. So look to the sovereign God who rules who has created everything in and rules providentially all that he has created. And be grateful and be thankful and look for the opportunities. That come our way and the blessings that will be there to follow. You know, God's blessings are abundant. He doesn't run out of blessings. Don't think that there's a limit. Don't say that. You're only amount to have so many know. What are you doing for the Lord? What are you doing regarding Preaching and teaching the gospel, the saving gospel of Jesus Christ to others. I'm going to be talking about That today and a few other things. Hopefully they tie in together. When you have almost a half a Knauer on a broadcast. Sometimes you bounce around a little bit. And so I'd like to talk about a few things that air always it seems in this day and age to be On our minds, and so we'll start with that. Now I give you some verses. The Bible tells us That blasted is the nation. Whose God is the ward. That, of course, is from Psalm 33 verse 12. It also says that the righteousness exalts the nation, but sin is the reproach to any people. Proverbs 14 34. And then from Amos, nine. Verse eight. The eyes of the Lord are upon the sinful kingdom to destroy it. From off the face of the earth. Now. The Apostle Peter commented on that when he said it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness then after they had known it to turn from the Holy Commandment delivered onto them. So it's a warning. It's a warning for nations like ours. Founded on Judeo Christian principles and blessed by God for over 200 years, you cannot look back over the history of the United States of America and not Recognized God's fingerprints. Now I understand the unbelievers are not going to see it. We do We do because we're looking for it. But We who walk with the Lord are able to recognize it it just by opening our eyes. It's there. But Jesus clearly warned the nation that becomes disobedient to God's word. He warns them and that causes them to be worthy of greater judgment than ungodly nations, which never had God's teaching. What did he say about that? He said. It shall be more tolerable. For Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city or for that man or for that nation that comes out of Matthew 10 verse 15. What we know it didn't end well for Sodom of the Morra did it? And if any of you need a refresher on it turned to Genesis, 19 and read what the Bible tells us and then get down on your knees and plead God's mercy. On America because we have lost our way. You know, it's not how it's not always how you start. They say. I've been told this through life. It's not always how you start. It's how you end up. And there's a lot of people. Who start badly very badly. But then along the way, they come to know the Lord. And their end is better than their beginning. As we read about in the book of job, his end was better than his beginning. And job went through quite a bit, didn't he? So let me try to tie that in with some of the things that are going on today. I think more and more people finally, Thankfully, more and more people are coming to realize that the chaos of the past year 2020 and now What are we two months into? Well as of today, two months into 2021. You're coming to realize that the chaos may not have been coincidental. And I know we don't use that word as Christians, but you understand the intent of it. And and it's a word that fits with what I'm telling you here. More likely. It is just evidence of a diabolical agenda. And I use that word. Um, not loosely, but pointedly, it is diabolical. Satan is behind these things. And it's an agenda. What's being called a global reset? I know you've heard that term enough Now that you're tired of hearing it. And it's aimed at destroying in our case American sovereignty, but it's aimed at destroying free nations around the world. The endgame of it all, of course, is a global system run by on elected bureaucrats again here in America. A k a swamp creatures, but they are surfacing all around the globe in the endgame, of course, is a global domination. It's of particular interest to me is a Christian and to you who are listening to this. I'm sure swamp creatures have a different religion. They have a different god than we do. They are secular humanists and their deity is the state. All of this. Of course again. You and I know this has been predicted in the Scriptures. Most recently, 2000 years ago, when the Apostle Paul told the Christians and stuff so aneka that when the church follows error more than truth A man of tradition would be revealed. The church is fall into ecumenism is picking up steam picking up steam to the point that it will soon be ready to join forces with the worldwide governance of the anti Christ. So you have the anti Christ leading the government. You have the false prophet leading the religion and that's what it is. You know, religion I heard years ago. Religions are man made. Christianity is not so much a religion as it is a faith. And so that's what truly sets us apart but decides you're everywhere. I pray God gives you the eyes to see if you haven't been made aware of them up to this point. There's a lot out there to see. You know, there's a lot I think maybe people don't want to see And I can understand that. Those of us who.

He pleaded out he fought it out. He gives best unenriched sometimes even when they started the bench in recent games. It doesn't mean giving his best just To an extent not too much encouragement from the team. Not winning your time so if you blame up from that i must commend the effort of willian. Yes we'll have.

"God's prophetic word. Now here with his challenge for Christian Americans to defend faith and freedom is David Lewis. Christian greenish one in all, this is Reverend David Lewis with in defense of Truth, the radio Ministry of the couple Bible Presbyterian Church. As I often say, I will say again today that this is indeed the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice as Christians and we will be glad in it because it's today that God has made. It's the day that God has given us our sovereign God, who sits on the throne of grace. Providentially rules, his universe and all that is in it. God is king. There is no man no mere man anywhere on earth that can claim that title whether he'd be an earthly king, or she be unearthly queen or a president or a premiere or a prime minister. Or a dictator, and there's more and more of those showing up aren't there But this is the earth, which God has created and he's knows what's going on. In fact, Again, as we often say, because we like to quote Scripture here. And from the book of Daniel, It is God that places leaders and it's God who removes leaders. And so Donald Trump is no longer in the White House. He is no longer currently the president of the United States, so the Lord has seen fit to remove him. And he has replaced him. He has ordained that Joe Biden would be Our president moving forward now again. We don't know for how long that will be. There are all kind of Things out there on the Internet. What do they always say? Well, what's on the Internet? It's got to be true right now. If it's on the Internet, it is most likely not true. You want to know what's true. You open your Bible, Genesis to revelation. That's where you'll find The truth, But here we find ourselves With the 46 president, whether it was done above board or under the table or however, you want to describe whatever fraud happened during the voting process. I think most honest, reasonable people will tell you that there was some fraud again. We've not seen proof, not a not a proof, not proof that would stand up in court in order to overturn the election, But it really Seems pretty obvious that there was a lot of nefarious activity going on. And again. God has allowed this to happen. So we have to ask the question. Well, why would that be? Well, I've been saying since Barack Hussein Obama took office back in 08 that judgment has come to America, we again are a land. That just it seems like we're just crying out to be judged with the things that we do. We have lost all morality in this nation, what was once at least its beginnings and for quite some time moving forward. Think moral law stood and stood firm and stood strong in this country, but it has been chipped away and chipped away and chipped away over the years. More and more institutions coming to play on that. Where is now you've got the media which attacks it. You have the entertainment industry. Whether you want to call that Hollywood or sports Or music or Madison Avenue. Put it all in. You can throw them in the mix is well, Big Tech. Now we're learning more and more about the big corporations. Someone once said. There's about six major corporations that That rule not only this country but the entire world.

They want power so badly they will sell their souls to the devil. To get it. So just go all the way back into the Bible all the way back to the Tower of Babel. I mean, this has been going on for a long, long time. It's not going to change. It's only going to get worse until the Lord returns. So am I giving you hope? Well, I'm giving you hope. If you're a believer, because we sleep well at night. Yes, the the strings under personal get a little tighter. The The wallet in the pocket will be a little bit lighter. Things will change economically. Mr. Trump had us on the right past, going in several different directions and now Mr Biden sisterly roadblocks up. Well, it masked. I don't know, people say well in two years we'll get the Congress back. Don't hold your breath on that one. If if, indeed they did steal this presidential election, they could steal those future elections as well. They'll be getting a lot of new votes coming across the southern border. Very soon and changing maybe some of the constitution taking this out, putting that, in whatever the case may be adding a few more states to get a few more. Democrats, senators There's a lot of tricks that they are up to, but again, is it because God is bringing judgment on America? I have said, and it's not just me, many have said. The dad through the years, you cannot keep killing babies and expect no consequences. To calm is a result of that. You just can't do that. Life is precious to God. God is the creator of life and we are killing that life. We're killing it before it even Breeze. Fresh air We're killing it in the womb. And how how sick is that? How despicable is that? And we're not just killing it, Then we're ripping it apart and selling body parts. The evil that mankind can sink up it just again. You know it used to amaze me. It doesn't anymore. I'm not. I'm really not shocked at much of anything that goes on anymore. The things that passed today for normal in the evil world, not so much to us Christians. They were unheard of just a few years ago. Just a decade or so ago. The things that are going on and again it will get worse. Do not underestimate the depravity. Of the human mind and the human heart. Jeremiah told us about that. So none of these things again should surprise you. If you're a believer, listening this broadcast, and if you're not a believer if you just happen down the dial Came across us today. I would like to invite you into the Sala ship. I would like to invite you to meet our Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ..

"You can't talk how long you can talk. What's allowed what's not allowed? And of course, the Democrats have a great majority. What do we have now? 40 people We have 40 and they have 90 some 90 some so they're in overwhelming majority. And So they kept you out. I mean, they keep you out of the ballgame to start with no matter how hard you try, and you and delegate Boteler try very hard and I know you do but let's get back to the caucus idea. Caucus are the 40 members of the Republican Caucus. They have meetings every week, and they Supposed to plan strategy and work together or do whatever and you feel that's not happening. Well, Number one. There was no discussion of the rule change. There was no vote on whether it was unacceptable. Change are not acceptable, wasn't explained or anything. So then, when we got to walk in Only 10 of the 20 you were out in the hole had courage enough to walk in. And the rules. There was no debate on the rules. We didn't hear the rules. They weren't read the US seven of us voted against the rules of the 40. Some Republicans. Can you name the seven? Well, yes, myself. Okay, Polar. Elegant Fisher married Marc Fisher. Mark Fisher Parrot Who man for Congress from western Maryland. Gentlemen that you had on the radio, please. Dan Cox. Cox. Apartment on Earth from the eastern shore. They were the only seven that had the guts to stand up and do the right thing, Kevin and I don't care if they were the best rules in the world, which they weren't just the fact that we were locked out and made stand in the hallway and we're not allowed to participate. That's not the way this is No course not. Now, let me explain something before I go to delegate bowler to our listening audience. Uh, Rick Impallaria and Joe Boteler are not like us. Okay, what I mean, we're people where citizens they are elected representatives of the people. They hold the title, delegate or legislative, but they are elected representatives of the people. Whatever you think of them Republican or Democrat. They have been duly elected to represent a district now, Joe, how many people are in the district? Oh, I think the better 121 133. I think it is 253,000 depending on the district. So when you look atyou, Boteler or Rick Impallaria, your delegate, you're looking at 133,000 people. That's what I mean by different, okay? So when they are denied rights that they are entitled to when they are denied access when they are misled or not respected. Leaders, which are all Democrats and very radical. They're all radical Democrats. They're not even liberals anymore. When I When we talk about the legislation that's coming up. You will clearly understand how radical these people are. When they disrespect and do not allow delegate bowler and delegate Temple. That's 133,000 people. That they are disrespecting. Yeah, you have to remember. A lot of those folks are From the Democratic Party to it, Z. Not just We represent Republicans. We represent Democrats. You know, justice well, and it might district It's a 2 to 1 ratio. And you know, I represent Hillandale. I represent Rose. Stale these air areas where, um, you know their voice should be heard. I find it amazing. That we're always talking about the vote. And how everyone has the right to vote. That vote needs to be protected. But here we are elected officials down their elected buyer are folks and we're shut out of the process. It's absolutely astounding. Well, let's do this. Let's take a quick call, and we got to take a break it a 20. We're gonna have our favorite pastor, Doctor. Uh, David Lewis, David, but first want to take a call from Bob and Park for when he wants to talk about Hogan for a minute. And what will it will use that right now?

Okay, But let's talk to Barbara quick here. Have good evening your.

"A bunch as Sudeep in Heather and I were talking about a bunch of new directives coming out of the Biden White House. And if you read him I mean, really read him, not just the subject line in the first paragraph, You realize pretty quickly. They are mostly instructions for various federal agencies to do specific things change policy research, an issue come up with a strategy or Looking at it another way. The president's creating a pretty long to do list for a federal bureaucracy that, according to the experts, is kind of low on staff marketplace to Kimberly Adams explains what that might mean. The United States is a little weird compared to other developed countries in terms of how we hand over control of the government even before the challenging to put it mildly transition we had this year. We do this odd thing of basically lopping off the top of the pyramid of our senior employees across the federal government. And asking presidents to make roughly 4000 political appointments. Katherine Dunn Tempus is a senior fellow at the University of Virginia's Miller Center, and of the 4000 roughly 1300 or so require Senate confirmation, so that's an arduous task. Especially if the opposing party in the Senate decides to slow things down. Paul Light is a professor of public service at N Y u and says Even the appointments that don't require Senate approval may take a while. She got background reviews. You got clearances. You got hearings. You got litmus tests, you name it. Additionally says light former President Trump's efforts to downsize the federal bureaucracy mean agencies have fewer people in career civil service rules to do the work. In the meantime, David Lewis teaches political science at Vanderbilt University and says all this has policy implications when there are vacancies at the top of these administrative agencies. That leads to delay in rollout. Lewis says One of the challenges for the Biden administration is not just coming up with new policies but also coming up with enough people to implement them. In Washington. I'm Kimberly Adams for Marketplace, one of the big problems with the vaccine rollout, even apart from manufacturing and the supply chain and the just overwhelming demand. Is what's known as the last mile in e commerce. It's literally the last mile all the stuff that has to happen just before that package lands on your doorstep in the vaccine realm. It's the part just before the needle gets jabbed into your arm gently. Of course, the logistics are unbelievably difficult and nobody is really happy with how things have been going so far, and big companies Amazon and Wal Mart, Starbucks and honey Wall among them. Are stepping up to help marketplaces. Marielle Segarra has that one. The Trump Administration left the vaccine rollout for the most part to state and local governments. So right now it's literally the Wild West and on a gurney teaches operations.

The Role of Marketing Has Changed (Here's How)
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about how the role of marketing has changed and how so I was actually looking at a there's a link imposed our mutual friend Yaniv shared and I thought it was interesting. So I can kick it off I just to give you an idea of what the template looks like and then we can kind of go back and forth if you think about the old way of doing mark disposals by guy named David Lewis, the old way was a lot of. Outbound marketing right album marketing could be maybe you're posting something on a billboard, for example, right and so you know outbound marketing is that's one thing. The other one is thinking about sales owning the buying process right so that was the past right sales like marketing is marketing, but you know sales sales and. You know. The other thing I'll I'll say here is sales and marketing in the old ways they were more focused on alignment, and so now if you think about it, they're more focused on being integrated. So it's not just US versus you type of thing, but they're you're actually together as one. So that's an example then versus now of the thing that's big to before there wasn't tons of channels. Now, there's a lot of channels you could do TV, print, radio billboards desert mentioned but now there's so many channels like even online. There are facebook youtube linked. In Red Pinterest snapchat TIKTOK GOOGLE ADS Tebboula out brain like the amount of places that you can go in the networks in the inventory that each people control is drastically different and for that reason, just marking has become now Omni channel whereas a marketer. If you can't figure out to wear multiple hats, you're not gonNA do well in the long run it doesn't mean you have to be great at everything you know but more. So even if you're really good at one thing, one channel, that's fine too. But if you really want to scale and be that executive. You gotta understand multiple hats and how to run a team that can leverage all of them instead of one of them because you can no longer build a company just a one channel like when you used to facebook was built off the email if I go and create another copycat facebook that's better and I just did it won't work look at Tiktok. They blitzed the whole web everywhere and offline to grow their popularity quickly they couldn't just use it invite slow from that facebook used. To grow I think the other thing I would add is back in the day marketing would-be targeting individuals. Now, what it is, now as a lot of people say account based marketing, what you're targeting in the account. So if I'm targeting Coca Cola I used to maybe just picked the VP of Marketing Coca Cola. Now, I might pick the entire marketing team or maybe even the broader team around coca-cola some targeting the entire count and eventually hope is that you know we'll get a hold of. Somebody and be able to hit them up and then utilize things such as dynamic retargeting to constantly be top of mind for these people and Neil just mentioned earlier being on the channel right 'cause you know maybe the rule of seven is is maybe the rule fourteen. Now, right people need to see a lot more to take an action and I truly believe that you know the people that do branding. Well, we're kind of all over the place when they're aiming for reach. That's how. They're gonNA drive long-term success in general look if you WANNA. Do well, try to understand all the channels understand how they play nice together and understand how in the organization everyone can move and think about sales and marketing because it's all intertwined and that's how concentrate growth hacking came about and if you do that I, think you're going to be much better off you're going to have to know fine tuning your processes you're GonNa, find your workflows but the concepts are still the same in which. The more people you get more eyeballs as long as it's converting the better off you are, and the final thing I'll add from my side is that you have to understand technology as a modern marketer back in the day maybe not so much. But if you look at how things are being done online right now, there's a lot of personalization going on right now you have a lot of data coming through your website. You might be enriching that
How did Andy Murray win that?
"Right Okay Day to the US Open. How on Earth did Andy Murray do that Catherine? He's just one from four, six, four, six, one, three down. How has he done that somebody explained to me Name Messing with the lewd tonight is the plum street in the deepened. Question isn't it? I mean what's going on? Well, they said to two women who we had to know primarily a CEO Tim. If you had to attribute that combat come back to one thing and one thing I think we're on a time limit. What would it be and he said halt. I think I mean obviously, that is that that is a word that covers a broad spectrum of things all of them are. Totally embodied by Andy Murray persistence to nasty doggedness stopping this. But obselete hot is what got him through a very bizarre tennis match today I mean I'm sure in the annals of time we remember the witness of if the match that will suitable fade away and we'll remember the school line in the emotion whatever ends up coming in the aftermath, but it was a It was a rookie right of a tennis match for for a long time. someone on twitter said that there was once a racehorse who died and when they cut the race open they realized he had a heart that was bigger than any other race horse in history and that feels like the kind of thing that might happen with Andy. Murray one day. That's a morbid take on them on a very joyous occasion for Andy. Murray. But it is one of those things isn't it? Because we think of Mary is so relatable and yet. On occasion like this, we I genuinely have no idea how he does something like that. It's it's thrilling to watch but I, come explain it. He operates on a different level of guts and defend defiance and resilient to what I'm capable of even imagining. In the you say that was a bit move it but didn't the encore interview immediately off the match the first question was Andy. We buried at the Australian Open last year and yet he He was just an alternate set of on the sports accidental turn of phrase unfortunately most well, we'll maybe fortunately a lot of these faces obscured by a mask, but I would quite like to have seen his full facial reaction to the declaration that he'd been buried the tennis community. Hopefully hopefully, we're looking at about fifty years down the road a sixty or something like that for. To have this. This forensic analysis. David Lewis let's get out of this. Yeah. Let's do that. Tell you what I think. We have just a bit of history in order so that we know exactly where we are with the Sandy Murry story. This is a man that was supposed to retire twenty months ago and. He didn't he went and had a hip surgery he went and had a new metal, hip. He then made a comeback and the combat went really well, and he won't doubles clean said he played mixed doubles with Serena Williams, at Wimbledon and then he went on won the singles title in Antwerp and it was just amazing and then he looked like he was hitting the buffet Z. looked like he was in real trouble when he had the complications and what was it called it the impingement of the joint with which which was think caused by sort of spare type thing on the hip and is causing all sorts of trouble didn't play the Australian Open this year I personally thought he was probably finished really at that point for. Twenty time. And slow behold he comes back place last week in Cincinnati Stroke New York has those two great wins over Varun Ti and then. Lost didn't look great against Manashe rich but comes into this match and a half to say I felt pretty sheep pretty. Confident on his behalf I thought he would. He would have struggle against a very good player world number forty, eight Yoshito Nishioka from Japan. He's twenty four years of age Manu beat Dan Evans. The Australian Open, this year, and who just has one of those really solid sprightly games left handed can hurt you but can also stay in rallies and for an hour and a half. He made Andy Murray. Look terrible Andy Maryland made himself look terrible and At that point I said on the radio and I know I said it on the radio because the BBC sport website copied and pasted my words into their text portal and I, got seventy four negative votes as a result of the words that I added which were Four six, four, six, one, three, headlined. He may not be able to do this anymore and I said this is one of the worst performances I've ever seen from Andy Murray to Grand Slam. He's got a metal hip, and he may not be able to do this anymore but looking at this having covered. So many of his matches I've never seen anything quite like it before past is not feeling very well, I, expected to see a fight tooth and nail his opponent is good and I thought he could cause problems but I expected it to be hyper competitive and Murray would win but it's not even close. And I stand by every single word that.

Seattle city leaders throw support behind defunding SPD by 50%
"Council members pledging to defund and dismantle the Seattle police Department, as we currently know it. Almost met Markovich is following this story. The chance to be fun may become a reality. During a virtual news conference, four members of the City Council join activists and pledged to cut and rebuild SPD from the ground up. It is the institution of policing itself that must be does nettle. Three other council members later made the pledges well to follow for guiding principles proposed by the group's holding the conference. Replace current 9 11 operations with civilian controlled system scale up community led solutions. Funda community created roadmap to life without policing and invest in housing. For all the proposal is outlined by decriminalized Seattle and King County Deputy now is the North Star to our moral compass. The deputy mayor has now sent an email to the council warning that a 50% budget cut of SPD Would leave the department with zero budget remaining for 2020 and would require the city to abolish the department and a $100 million reduction or 25% of SPD is budget would mean immediate layoffs of up to 1000 personnel leaving chief Best and the Seattle Police Department unable to conduct basic functions. Come on Matt Markovich reporting. Seven of the nine members of the council say they would support up to a 50% cut of the budget. At that support holds the City Council could override of meat a veto from marriage any Dirk and says she does not support that large of a cut. Almost call Miller reports from Seattle Police headquarters with comment from chief Best and the chief saying that the people of Seattle should not have to go through this experiment and to see what happens if the budget or to be slashed in half. Now, that said, She does expect as he cuts to something agreed, but said she will keep fighting for her officers. Chief Best said that as communities around the country, figure out howto better police and keep people safe at this move would be detrimental and 50% cut. She had strong words about what it could mean. I will fiercely advocate that we focus on realistic, rational and responsible solutions, not political gestures or pandering, a political posturing. I do not believe we should ask the people of Seattle to test out a theory that crime goes away. If police go away that is completely reckless. That's almost Cole Miller reporting, Deputy Mayor Mike Fong sent a letter to the City Council stating quote it would be irresponsible to make immediate cuts without any conceivable mechanism to stand up alternative models to achieve community's safety. Dividing police are rather de funding. Police by 50 cent would change things in Seattle considerably. Comas Jonathan Joe takes a closer look.

Lawrence Wright on Researching a (Fictional) Pandemic
"Last book was God Save Texas Nonfiction. I believe there was a play in between and now this just curious how you go from one project to the next and and forgive me if I skipped a project that may have been in between as well years ago. I made a resolution that I would only do things that were important or fun. Was you know the state of confusion about what I wanted to do with my life and I thought I as a journalist I like to be on the important stories of the day but I also realized that it didn't want to give up things that really joyful and so those are the polls stars of my career and I think is sort of understandable that I would now be working on a musical but you know if you take those as your pulse stars in. I think you can have a pretty interesting career. Are they ever important and fun? Yes this book was. I know it sounds you know is is is a rather bleak book but I really had a wonderful time researching it and going into the world of of public health in all these swashbuckling intellectuals I just admire them so much so I I really had a good time working on this book. All right I'm going to cut to the chase and let everyone know who doesn't know already that the end of October is a fictional story of a pandemic so before we get into more about it and want to go back again to the origin stories. You've said that the director Ridley Scott Asks you a question after Reading Cormac. Mccarthy's the road and that that was your inspiration. What was the question? And when did he ask this? When were you sitting around with Ridley Scott talking about this? This was a decade ago and he is questioned was what happened because Cormac didn't say anything. About what event or of nature had brought civilization to heal? So I started thinking about what could do that and of course I thought about nuclear war but I was a young reporter covering diseases out of the Center for Disease Control in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. There's a swine flu outbreak in the legionnaires disease and I had become enchanted with that world and the courage and ingenuity of the people that I found there and so I thought it'd be an interesting place to find a hero because I felt that those people that I met were really heroic and that disease had been underestimated as a problem for our society in modern times. So Ridley Scott ask you this question about a decade ago and you had been thinking about it because you had reported on disease over the years. When did you actually start working on? This novel really never made the movie. So like Mr Destiny of so many projects in Hollywood and about in two thousand seventeen. I've been thinking about this story. Still is in my mind so I decided I would go back and work on work on. It is a knock and this time I would dive into the research even more deeply and let the story emerged more naturally rather than cinematic -ly so that's that's how the novel got started. You are such a master your master of many forms but I love your nonfiction so much. There's so much research material in this. Did you think maybe there should be nonfiction? I DID CONSIDER WRITING ABOUT MORE DISEASES. But you know it already had an imaginary character and a world which it was said. I got attracted to the idea of tempting it as a novel. It seemed a challenge for me and I wanted to see if I could do it. Who WAS THAT IMAGINARY CHARACTER? Will the name of my heroes? Henry Parsons in the late. Nineteenth Century in England. There was another influence of outbreak and a young epidemiologist named Henry. Parsons was the first to prove that it was caused by contagion and not by my asthma's in the environment you know. He's totally forgotten figure. But I decided to tip my hat to him and name my character. Henry Parsons he is a man whose life has been touched rather savagely by disease and works out of the Center for Disease. Control where I had done by early reporting. And he's an epidemiologist who's confronted many diseases in the past but has always known that there was one awaiting him. There was going to be the big challenge so the CDC is in Atlanta Georgia and the United States. But this novel the breakout begins elsewhere. You have it really kind of take hold in Mecca. Why did you choose to do that? We'll after nine eleven when I was working on my book looming tower. The Saudis wouldn't let me in as a reporter so I got a job. I was mentoring young reporters at the Saudi Gazette in Jeddah which had bin Laden's hometown and one of my very first jobs was to supervise their coverage of the Hodge and I was was not allowed to go to Mecca myself but I was in communication every day with my reporters and I was very struck at the time about the hazard of gathering of people in one place from all over the world and having every year some disease arises sometimes more than one and there's an epidemic in Mecca and then people get on airplanes and they fly home. Well you know what if it was something really dangerous suppose it was like the nineteen eighteen flu. That was in my gosh even when I was living in Saudi Arabia enter the CA-. Golly flew right. This is her fictional virus. Tell us about that sickness. And how did you come to describe what this flu would be like? Why a flu even influence is unconquered. It's the great killer it every year. We lose maybe you know fifty thousand people to influence a very dangerous disease. Clever in a way in that has always mutating. And you never know what's going to show up the next year. I mean the the fluid self that comes every year is sort of a descendant of that nineteen eighteen original Spanish flu right. That's correct Pamela. We're right now. The seasonal flu is H. One IN ONE. Which is the strain that killed between fifty and one hundred million people in nineteen eighteen? And I said as a young reporter I had done stories out of the Center for Disease Control but one of them in nineteen seventy six was a sudden outbreak of h one in one which is what public health officials had been dreading their entire careers. And it was a young man of recruit in Army Base Fort Dix in New Jersey. David Lewis suddenly after a Long March. Came back to the barracks in died. They examined the tissues discovered. It was h one n one Tremendous panic took place in. I win all over talking to people in Fort Dix and enter the members of David Lewis is family and so on the big mystery was he was the only one who died and yet you know there was this in national vaccine program and it became kind of catastrophe for Gerald Ford because people got sick from the vaccine. It was just a total mess but hanging over this was peculiar FAC fifty. Two hundred million people died you know a century ago and then only one and then in two thousand nine to the H. One in one came back as a pandemic and it was more like seasonal flu in his still with us but the the question I had was what would happen if something like the nineteen eighteen flu brand new novel virus came into our culture. How would we handle? It will be better prepared than our ancestors were in one thousand nine hundred eighteen and so the the flu that I create Congolese is really modeled on that. Old Virus one that came out in nineteen eighteen. It was also a hemorrhagic fever. You know there was no resistance to it in the population. I actually created a template that is based on the progress of the flu in Nineteen Eighteen. So in the novel the fluid advances across the globe. It pretty much mirrors. What was going on in nineteen eighteen?
Arsenal Crash Out of Europa League
"Kick things off in the League also against Olympiakos. What a dramatic ending to the game but also without one win in Greece. They didn't they make it through. However Olympia with council out in the second half of this game. See say with the go after avenue for what that would take us into extra-time a brilliant goal from Obama fantastic scissor-kick would make one one on the night two one on aggregate. That would be enough but then arriving in the last minute of extra time would score. That would see Olympia Costco through on the away. Goals robot away the late John Through family. And who you put your house on scoring. How did he puts it wide. Also out of the euro per league. We'll talk to the boys in the studio. And let's stop. Shall we Juliana wrong? Jules we know a big heart piece. Your heart isn't ps some of reserved for arsenal gutted. I think it's a tough nut to take forward the the author funds the of the way happened. Obviously with the the late Gore fall got goose and die by Obama young in the last minute of added time of extra time but also let's be honest. It was a poor performance. I think the attitude was no rights. They looked to be complacent. That no Sean Tiger. For the first one seventy five minutes of that game so in the end is the harsh defeat any Sahara eliminatation but also on the night tonight. There was just off the game too much. Who Do you blame more Stevia Pammy late missile David Lewis and he's defending? I think I think at the end of the day we'll mistakes as players and the players led from the mistakes and what dovid Louise didn't do. He didn't learn from his mistake with the first goal. Because you're in zone regardless of the opposition when the ball comes in your area you have to attack the ball. He didn't do it and didn't learn because the bulls flung again at the end of the game and he didn't attack it so at at an absolutely avid louise. It's an ongoing issue. Without defendants said pieces is a problem area for them and Wyoming end score is a great goal and even after all the struggles that you've had in this game he's gray goal and now you're through. All you have to see is the last two minutes of the match. And then that's it you're going to the next round. It wasn't pretty. It was it was. It must have been learning experience for us. And that's the way that I would have spun this whole story. But you're not able to defend properly said peace and then see you guys later take. Here's the other thing. I was here about Arsenal for whatever reason they thought that after winning the first game the first late one nothing that it was it was all done. That's the way they approach is game as if they had already advanced. The truth of the matter is that where arsenal is right now. They're not good enough to be complacent they're not good enough to like energy. They're not good enough to just be a team that is going to show up and you'll say now we just going to play around on. We'll see our way through to the next round. They're not good enough to be doing that. The players know that but the problem is that they cannot find any sort of consistency with their level of play. One day they look good the next day. They don't look so good one they look okay then the next day. Look what the one thing that they've been consistent about is poor defending set pieces Steve. I'll tell ya after the game. Lambasting his defense four goals conceded in last two matches from set pieces. Surely this is something you can work on in the training ground isn't it? I know that we talked about the personnel. The arsenal have and. It's not good enough but surely this is something you can actually physically help with. On a day to day train. You can work on the train and field all day every day seven days a week but if you have players who don't get it and they'll tell you they get but then they step on the field and continue to make the same mistakes and that's exactly what are still have been doing for the last two or three seasons defensively so the comes at time and I've been seeing all year long. The comes a time when it's not about the tactics or the coach. A suburb and Avid Louise. In particular has shown time and time again. He's making mistakes as a set of bike and it's cost and his team and until there's a change until Louise's moved that position and a better players and as you asked me you can walk all day long on an Infield but if you've got players who can't do the job isn't changing Joe's big picture. How big is this defeat for our so considering you up an argument was a great chance to qualify for the Champions League? Yes huge blow. Because of that obviously because that was maybe the easiest way because they can still finish fifth save city are buying for next. Season's Champions League they only four points behind but you would fancy that competition. So that's used blows so she's reforming ties went because he's a proper step back of why you've been trying to do and the resort. That been okay since he took over. There's been some improvement on the on. The field on the field going forward especially attacking wise defensively still issues and he has an address them well enough at the moment and avenue for him. It will be a setback and I think this issue tonight. Psychologically they go again on Monday night in the ETHICA. That's a hell of a tricky game away from home against a team that would have nothing to lose in a cup game in a hosted environments against the team that is playing really well in the lower leagues but also a team that would love that kept Gammon love trying to put more pressure on us on especially after tonight so the next few games will be very important for the where artists are trying to get his plays back on track for Monday. Night's
The Knot's Married Founders Tell All
"Right now I've got three wedding invitations hanging on my fridge I sometimes wonder at the people behind those cards the six people who are probably freaking out right now the caterer's the flowers the bridesmaids the group the venue the hotel discount for guests the hair the makeup the photographer the I'm going to stop because I'm starting to get stressed out and I'm already worried by the way fun fact the average wedding the average wedding in the US now cost thirty five thousand dollars in the planning four takes between nine months and a year so my advice elope and if that's not an option you will probably some point make your way to the not dot Com it's a multimedia platform that helps you plan your wedding and it's a big business than not is the center of immediate group now valued at more than half a billion dollars which is all the more remarkable because at one point during the dot com bust the not stock price felted twenty six cents but we'll get to that a little later when founders Carley Roney and David Lewis started the not in the late nineteen ninety s it was more like a chat room is a place people could pop into type in all caps is anyone else freaking out about their wedding planning well today the not says it's used by eighty percent of all couples planning a wedding which is also remarkable because David and carly's wedding was kind of a disaster actually met briefly when they were both Undergrad at Nyu in the nineteen eighty s they were both in the same thrown program but it wasn't exactly love at first sight well David was a senior and I was a freshman and we didn't really talk during it because two sentences in the entirety wow yeah because he loved kind of a super senior Snob to me did you buy with David Judy Notice Carly at that Oh you did already at that point but nothing ever came of it so after College Carleen David went their separate ways David got a job working get a start up in Philadelphia where he made video yearbooks for high schools and carly was a script reader for a movie director New York for few years later in the early nineties the both happened to be invited to a Christmas party by a former NYU professor and I remember looking across at this scooper people on thinking like unkind with the Pony tail why does he looks so familiar get a ponytail so you're like I don't know your late Twenties David at this point sounds Kinda just you're like this party and well actually I remember the doorbell ringing and hearing carly's voice and immediately better than she walked in to be lined with vodka and went to and said hey handsome what's funny is we ended up not with the premise of being back in touch with clearly there was you there was interest beyond bright or was it just super ernest like you said Yeah let's let's collaborate no I didn't February eight we moved in together in June remarriage oh my gosh you've jumped through this story so you you've gone from from ponytail party to being married like seven months later he the the irony that one of the starting ironies of the story is that I have divorced parents I never thought it was getting married I didn't believe in marriage I thought people just sort of like Jean Paul Sasha and Simone d'avoir be better to just be in love with someone maybe but have your own home just in case and then I met this guy Mike this is kind of amazing he's so amazing he lived in Philadelphia at the time and I actually then moved right to DC at that time the project at the Smithsonian and so we started this like long distance romance between Philadelphia and DC and I don't know if it was like some thing in the air or it was just like mad true love but one time we were sitting there and we were talking about taking a trip to Hong Kong and I said Oh you WanNa get married in Hong Kong just like out of the blue he said sure and I was like okay then let's get married wow so you go to your parents carly new say David I've been telling you about yeah we're getting married it will what's funnier is like I haven't told you about this Guy David marriages last exactly exactly what they said and in fact turns out and I never knew this they had sort of had a whirlwind romance and got married very quickly and ended up divorce so this was just like their biggest fear is playing out in front of them and you know because you're like young and spitting you're like you just don't understand mom and dad so you you guys get married and and how how how's the wedding what's the warning like so we were trying to look back at why was that we picked a date of July in DC we're where I am and it is a horrendously oppressive time of the year July in Washington DC is is a time when people leave on a roof opt-out side on a rooftop outside in July in Washington DC this is going to be your wedding day and really how hard can it be literally throwing a party for eighty fall like like what do we need we need a location we really didn't have a place in mind we figure we could find once we send out the invitations just said invitations were postcards from the National Zoo the head pictures of Panasonic sound crazy what just show up in Washington DC on this date view details when you're actually July tenth location DVD got you it was all kind of in the spirit of we're just gonNA throw this on party and they are actually community around us pulled together and that was the fun part about it my aunts who live nearby were like we're going to go get flowers at the farmer's market eh another aunt of mine was I have a friend who live who has a rooftop on the top of her building which is a block away from your home and then there's this Peruvian restaurant near us that we knew kind of served fun taps pious so we went and asked them maybe really just figured it out then over the course of three weeks it sounded at this point I'm kind of loving it like it's like the first original diy rooftop you know edgy wedding alternativa wedding and the only problem was that you know you're still watch the news those days to find the weather and we sort of turned on the news on the Wednesday before and saw the weather chart which included hundred and eight hundred hundred twelve it was climbing it was going to be one hundred and eleven degrees on wedding day what a hundred eleven degrees that the story just gets worse from there it's boiling hot our guest look like they're dying we had booked this venue the venues air conditioning had broken for trying to get the place cool and as we said it was like a beautiful Peruvian play Jason because we have a flair for the dramatic I thought that the most incredible thing would be if instead of serving the pie that we were serving behind the scenes if my my only horrifying part of my window was turning looking up and seeing my grandmother's face ace as they walked steaming plate of Pie by her I mean she was just horrified and this steaming fishy I mean he was like Oh my God this is such a colossal disaster everyone is so completely uncomfortable there's no air conditioning and really everybody just wants snow cones the hell out of there want and we walked away from that evening being like Oh my God I never WANNA do anything related to weddings ever again what a crazy industry why isn't it easier lies and their place to find this information just like yeah it was exactly all the things we thought would be horrible about planning a wedding war and so he slammed the door and never wanted to think about it again
Liverpool Sweeps Arsenal Aside
"Alongside melissa ready backing wear really and truly seems to be your second home here at anfield another commanding display from liverpool here in this one is absolutely thrashed arsenal. I mean it was only three one gets on the scoresheet but really and truly that performance was so commanding for the reds and i know that there are lots of questions surrounding liverpool especially after the match against southampton last weekend so male. Just let me know have liverpool answer those questions and put them to rest. I think they did quite emphatically. It was superior performance against arsenal in sort of i've every respect and what i took away from this game as i did from the community shield and really everything i've seen so far in the season is that manchester city and liverpool <hes> the benchmark. It's those two and then there's the rest to clear two-horse race for yeah. <hes> awesome tried something something different today. They actually came with confidence. <hes> a tactical plan that yorgen cup admitted he didn't expect he hadn't seen awesome execute before all where they played a very narrow field and allowed lovable wide and back themselves to deal with all the crosses and it worked for forty minutes now. Why i i say liverpool was superior in every respect is one of the things the side is able to problem solve and once they problem mm soul they have the ability to then pick you apart so joel map scores ahead of from alexander ronald's kona on forty one minutes and in the second talk before arsenal can even have any sort of chance to come back into the game. They're killed off. Quick quick muhammed saw david david lewis and that was it louise. Oh my goodness. We're definitely going to talk about him there because i know lots of arsenal supporters were quite surprised or quite happy actually when they did manage to get him him there on that one but again just talking about pool of course. I know that a lot of people said that southampton just last week. I'm bringing back up this game again if they probably had someone a little more superior could finish the they definitely would have had liverpool there because again. The defense seems to be a bit of a frailty for liverpool. How did you see today even though arsenal of course we know didn't threaten it as much as many would have expected. Probably liverpool's defense has been different. The season the team as a whole have been more open. They've allowed <hes> a lot more shots against them that than is typical for a liberal side obviously their title challenge and their european success last season was built on a strong defensive platform well <hes> part of that is because they are playing a slightly higher line. It's also because it's not just natural. It's the start thought of the season you have to sort of get into that routine and rhythm again. A lot of the players went away over the summer and paid with their national teams who you know us completely different tactics dick's different styles of mocking <hes> and so it's natural for the place to relearn liverpool system. I think the southampton game was obviously the context of little tired from having played in istanbul heats late-game flying back so yeah. I mean quickly quickly before we wrap up now. Let's just spare thought forest on because we have to of course all the labs on the show on e._s._p._n. A._f._c. if you've been watching as you should be watching basically said that this match would be a good benchmark for arsenal to see exactly where they stand in this premier league racist season if you want to put it so after what you just saw now. What are they thinking. Where do you see <hes>. I actually feel a little bit. Sorry for arsenal because like i said they they arrived with a plan that was effective for a large parts. They did create chances says that fell to a boomerang and nicholas pepper who impressed somewhat on his debut but most of what they created actually came from liverpool's eras ariza they didn't there wasn't good bold plan stuff from arsenal just lacking the right personnel the quality. I think it's very difficult to come to add field and play against this liverpool side.
