A highlight from This Asset Is Outpacing Bitcoin As Inflation Hedge!
"And probably flat next time, but it's close to a coin toss. They could raise it in November. CPI is up. Consumer Price Index. What does this mean? It basically means how you feel when you're opening your wallet at the end of the week, and then, you know, the pain that you felt. Well, CPI inflation jumped 3 .7 % in August, more than expected. The main reason, higher oil prices were behind the big rise in headline inflation last month. CPI rose 0 .6 in line with economists' expectations for 0 .6 and up from 0 .2 back in July. In a year -over -year basis, it rose 3 .7 % versus forecast for 3 .6%. So you got to be careful sometimes. You'll see people say, oh, you know, it's only 0 .6, it's only 0 .2, yeah, compared to last month. But when you're looking at a nation's inflation, you don't want it to even go up 0 .5 % month -over -month. You kind of want it to be flat month -over -month because the target is 2 % for the year. You divide that by 12, you're going to have everyone coming in at like, what, 1 .888, I think, like that. So 0 .1, 0 .2, we can handle that. Once you start tripling that, quadrupling that, that's when you're going to start to feel a little bit of pain. The core CPI, which strips out food and energy, rose 0 .3. And on a year -over -year basis, core CPI, which is stripping out the food and energy, rose 4 .7%. So almost a whopping 5 % year -over -year there. Surging oil prices were a major factor in the rise of headline inflation. The Fed, though, will likely take comfort in the continuing decline in the core inflation rate, which fell to its weakest pace since mid -2021. The Fed's September policy meeting takes place next week, and the central bank is widely expected to leave it unchanged. Focus will soon turn to the next meeting at the start of November. Markets are currently pricing in a 40 % chance they will rate height then. So according to the CME FedWatch tool, and the prediction markets have been pretty accurate. So it looks like it's going to be flat next time and probably flat next time, but it's close to a coin toss. They could raise it in November, but we're going to be pretty close to the holidays. I don't know if, you know, it's not popular to do something like that right before everyone has to go Thanksgiving shopping or Christmas shopping. And I'm going to be real interested to see what Black Friday is going to look like this year. Do you guys have any Black Friday predictions? Is it going to be, I mean, we're still shrinking it just because of web activity? I always, you know, I'm probably going to buy a TV. That's my Black Friday prediction. Okay, okay. Drew, you're going to buy any like chicken coop wiring? Oh my God. You know, I've been liking buying chainsaws. So I might go get a chainsaw. Oh, man. Plural. You know, chainsaws. All right, chat. How many chainsaws does one home need, one family need, one man need? You got a chainsaw on a pole that I can stand on a ladder on a ladder and then using the pole with the chainsaw at the end of the pole and really reach new heights. So, you know, there's a chainsaw for everyone. All right, all right. Gas is surging. They're feeling the inflation at the gas tank for sure. Yeah, we've seen gas is moving on up. Some people are saying people's faces will melt because of Avax. Avax Avalanche. Because they're sad they lost so much? Is that why? The tears melted the makeup. Ten chainsaws. Ten chainsaws is the number. Kevin has three. Kevin has three. I got a chainsaw. Piccolo Rick says, Piccolo Rick has three chainsaws. Do you guys like really like Limp Bizkit? Like what's, you know, old Eminem videos? What's going on here? I love that album unironically as a 14 -year -old. What is the CPI? Here we have a little bit of a breakdown of the CPI. CPI is a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by urban consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services. They tweak it. They massage it, you know, to kind of make them look a little bit better. Here we have the 12 -month percentage change for the major categories. All items. So we have all items, 3 .7 to the upside. Then food, 4 .3%. Energy, actually down here. And then we have major categories, all items, less food and energy. That's the core, 4 .3%. So this is the year -over -year change. So Brent crude probably down there. Alright, let's see. What else do we have here on the US CPI? We have this US CPI pegged token, and it is outperforming Bitcoin as an inflation hedge. But the important thing is to look at, you know, what is the timeframe that it's outperforming here. In this context, this is created, the token created by Fracks Finance and supposedly pegged to the US CPI seems to be outperforming Bitcoin by close to 40 % since its deployment. But the deployment was from September 22 to press time. So from September of last year. And you can see here that was pretty close to, oh, wait, no, that's the CPI. That is not a Bitcoin. If we go to here, we go to Bitcoin chart, we go to September of last year, go to CoinGecko, go to the top coins, click on the flagship crypto. We can't do one year, but we kind of can. Yeah, Bitcoin is actually up. So outperforming in a major way. So doing a pretty good job there. September, I think we're a little bit high. Yeah, September. So up Bitcoin roughly 25 % and is outperformed it by 40%. So the CPI token, but me, I would stay away from something like that. Like just trading gold on the blockchain. I'd probably rather just buy gold from, you know, a pawn shop or something. I don't know, it depends on the tax. Depends on what kind of tax they're giving you. Someone did their community service in a forest to axes only. Ooh, yeah. Whoa. That's a lot. That's what we're kind of feeling. Mario has three, big one, small one and a long one. They're very practical tools. What do you guys like watching a lot of Dexter or someone? I mean, how much trees are going to cut things down and break things apart? It's chainsaws are amazing. Well, I just hired tree removers because I'm scared of heights and there's just no way my age broken limp wrist, you know, that just seems I would be up there shaking like a Chihuahua dripping pee.
Fresh update on "dexter" discussed on Crypto Banter
"Is going after the exchanges that went for Binance FTX is gone you know for sure they're going for other exchanges at the moment we're now seeing that the next thing that they want is they want the stable coins so yesterday we had a Treasury official saying that stable coins such as tether may be in sight and what did they say they said without explicitly naming tether the top official from the US Department of Treasury took a shot Wednesday at the dangers of a non US stable coin obviously I wanted to see a CBDC just read between the lines here but what they're saying is he's saying that whilst we have heated our calls blah blah blah no one can use US dollar backed assets to allow for terrorist activity human trafficking he cited the US authorities saying I want to directly address those in digital asset industry who believe they are above the law those that willfully turn a blind eye to the law and those that promote assets and services at 8 criminals my message is simple we'll find you and we'll hold you accountable and specifically without talking about tether he was talking about tether so that is a headwind and you'll remember that Larry Fink said that the BlackRock said that USTC and USTC pose a risk to Bitcoin so you will remember that then you got Mt. Gox they have five billion dollars worth of Bitcoin and we know for sure that in 2024 they're actually gonna start making payments so they made the changes and they said up to 31st October 2024 that is when they're going to start making the payments that's coming in 2024 so far nothing's happened so far they haven't been able to it we also have the FTX liquidator FTX liquidator selling they starting to sell they got permission from the court sell about a billion dollars worth of grayscale and other assets this is good let them get all their selling out let's get them out of the system let's get the money paid to people who had money in FTX so we can bring that money back into crypto and and we can actually get that money back investing into our our ecosystem so that's another headwind that's happening and you can see FTX has been selling Solana and has been selling Matic what has it done for the price of Solana nothing nothing let's just quickly look at the price of Sol I saw that the price of Sol hold on a second okay so I saw the price of Sol 60 60 bucks 59 68 so I mean you can see that the FTX liquidator doesn't isn't able to to actually move the price so that is why we have a lot to be grateful for a lot to look forward to in 2024 when it comes to altcoins we have a lot to be a lot to look forward to and one of the biggest things we've got to look forward to is I mean obviously the charts we've got to look forward to to the charts that's that's something that is really really really exciting we know that total three is just breaking out of this pattern and we've got a long way to go if you believe that we're getting into a new cycle and we're gonna get higher highs so we do have a lot to look forward to and the thing that I'm most looking forward to is this it's the fact that I think this is going to be the last cycle where we have information asymmetry in the previous cycle we had information asymmetry about Bitcoin and about ETH we knew more about more than the retail investor and more than the institutional investor which made up the majority of the money in crypto we knew more about the asset than they did and because we knew more about the asset than they did we held on to our assets when there was FUD we we were just closer to the fire in the next cycle what I believe is going to happen I believe the institutions are going to buy Bitcoin and ETH because that's the only thing they can buy and I believe that they're gonna drive the price of Bitcoin and ETH so high that it's actually gonna be worth our while to sell our tokens to the institutions because we're gonna go to we're gonna want to move a lower down the risk of a higher up the risk of into the altcoins and the best thing is that I think for us specifically us as the banter fam we have an advantage we've shown you this advantage the advantage is the information asymmetry that our channels bring you right like we just dig deeper our researchers are just better and we managed to give you guys much better returns than anybody else I wanted to show you something so like first of all if you're not using the strongest research to research tool in the market which is the newsroom on banter babbles I don't know what how you guys are surviving literally literally every single tweet that I look at every single bit of content is available to you guys yes but boy you heard me right you can use my research to make a show that's it apparently that's what they've been doing so you can literally get all my research from all my researchers for free and right now as I said to you guys it is about information asymmetry this is the last run where we will actually have information asymmetry and we need to use that information asymmetry to make life-changing money no one's gonna help you except our researchers and you got the research for free you don't even have to apply where else in the world is there a place where where where where you where you can get my research for free okay so that's the first part of the information asymmetry and we know the information asymmetry works now I'll just show you one example of how the information asymmetry works so if you go to total three and you look at how much total three has done in November here we go that is the performance of old coins in November they performed 30% in November okay our ETF is up eighty three point one percent and that is before before you add in all our DJ calls this is like the long-term strong ETF why because we just seem to have better better information right now and information asymmetry right now because we look harder we dig deeper and we find stuff quicker than everyone else and you know where that where that stuff lives that stuff lives here in the newsroom literally this is where we get our alpha from this is it there's we don't have any other a depository a depository indicator anything like that so that is the information symmetry also don't know if you guys watched the show that we did with hustle last night so this is a show with hustle we did it on our new channel in the game a lot of you were there some of you weren't there I don't know why you why you weren't there we gave you guys ten calls or eleven calls here they are we told you guys to enter one of the ones we told you guys to enter was shrapnel because hustle said look you got to get in quickly because it's gonna bounce and when I looked this morning it had bounced from 16 to 20 there we go 25 percent bounce okay now that is what you call information asymmetry if you would have just listened to our show and in the game yesterday we broke down for you why it was gonna happen and that's it and what do you need to do you go there you subscribe that's it end of story that's it that's it so simple so so so so so simple yeah I think we also have a lot to be excited for in 2024 when it comes to yes there's gonna be an old corner on but the narratives like game fire massive narrative real-world assets massive narrative AI massive narrative layer 2 blockchain is not as bullish about layer 2 blockchains social fight not bullish about social fire Dexter's very very very excited about Texas I have to be excited about meme coins I have to have to be excited about meme coins omni chain bridges layer zero very excited gamble fire super super super excited there's never been a better time to be alive and honestly has been never been a better time to to join us here on this mission at banter to retire in the next 600 days hopefully we can all just retire in the next 600 days we can meet them Island we can have a party I don't know something like that it's all available to you right now everything is available to its I mean it 99% of it is completely free like you don't have to do anything so that's that let's look at quick you look at the old coins that are breaking art in anticipation of December again where'd I go everything everything is just in the bubbles this week you look at the last hour on the bubbles just tell me if I'm as close any of my trades boys and girls let me know if I'm just close any of my trades the last hour not so good everything read everything read everything read everything read I've got three short positions open FTT iota and UST those are the ones that I need to crash okay those are the ones that I need to crash those are the ones that I need I need them to crash let's look at the day today so you got injective up 7.04% let's quickly go look at that injective chart the injective injective chart is a beast hold on a second it's a beast I mean over that chart over that chart okay so the high the recent high because I remember in 2017 actually with higher but the recent highest is 19 bucks it needs to break 19 bucks I saw another crazy breakout for rune so rune crazy break out this week you look at rune if you are in the rune trade well done I wouldn't get in now I haven't closed my trade from yesterday you can see it's still open here it is I will close it 500 it's two thousand two hundred and ninety one percent in profit you can see it over here let me make it better for you there we go you can see it over here two thousand two hundred ninety two percent ninety five percent in profit five hundred fifty five thousand dollars I will close that trade at some at some point see my USTC short three six fifty my Otis short three seven one oh I'm gonna close them in a bit I think let me know what you think in the in the in the chat so rune looking very very good for the same but doge as this feature that I think doge is gonna be your best trade but I do think that you need to have some doge in your portfolio it is the doge ten year anniversary doge is going to the moon this year Elon is gonna do something with doge you just know it's gonna happen so I would keep some doge in my portfolio I have got some I actually I've got a long position open you can see small long position open I've taken thirteen thousand dollars profit I've got thirty seven thousand dollars profit waiting to be taken in that doge position yeah I mean what else is there say say network is one that I wanted to pick up and oh look at this fancy advertisement that you guys are put on for the by but card go down sign up for by because of a Bible card I've got a Bible card it's amazing great card to have great card to have it's in my wallet in the other room but this is a fancy advertisement you guys are got here wow wow wow the scarecrows have actually pulled something amazing off here there's a new token coming out which I think we need to look at it's called inspect inspect what is it it's a game-changing crypto app which now just by using extra can inspect and the inspector you can analyze any token NFT or wallet using it almost like a like a plug-in and stuff like that so yeah they say it's real social fire so probably a good one to look out for when it comes out hopefully they'll come out in December so I think that's we've got a lot to talk we've got a lot to look forward to in December and 2024 again I do think that at some point we get a correction that's why I don't have a lot of like risky risky risky positions open at the moment I mean I've got yeah I nibbled I nibbled a bit of a little bit of like dreams questions for fine I mean again casino positions not no fundamentals at all just the office here was doing it I jumped in just for shits and giggles let's spend two minutes talking about what happened with Elon you asked me I mean I know I know crypto Twitter is celebrating and they're saying you know that this whole big fuck you that he gave to advertisers I mean just just watch this here we go I mean we did hear it but let's just watch it again together there's a public perception that that I don't know what you really think about it apology tour there was advertisers leaving we talked to Bob I got this up you don't want them to have it I know if somebody's gonna try to blackmail me with advertising blackmail me with money go fuck yourself there's a public perception that that was so I mean you can see that that was quite shocking to everybody everybody in the everybody in the audience and I mean listen I think that I think that this is great this is crazy this is what's going on is crazy Elon looks to me he looks stressed he looks tired he looks like he's under a lot of pressure I mean he called Andrew Ross Sorkin he called him Jonathan just just listen to this So I will simply not pander. And Jonathan, the only reason I'm here is because you were a friend. He says, What was my speaking fee? You're not making any... I'm Andrew. It's okay. Second of all, we've known each other for a very long time. You see, that's the problem.
Actor Sean Patrick Flanery Joins Dinesh In-Studio
"Guys, I'm really thrilled about today on the podcast we have a guest and a great guest in studio, Sean Patrick Flannery, a Hollywood actor. He is an American actor born in Lake Charles Louisiana. It was raised outside of Houston, Texas. He's appeared in over a hundred movies and TV shows, powder, suicide kings, the boondock saints, the young Indiana Jones chronicles, Criminal Minds, the dead zone, Dexter, and so on. He also owns and operates while on martial arts academy. Hollywood Brazilian jiu-jitsu. And we're here to talk about a film, a new film coming out this week, April 14th. Called nefarious. John Patrick, welcome to the podcast great to have you. Thank you. And let's talk a little bit about Hollywood first. You're a Texas kid. Who went to Hollywood? What got you there? Well, I went to university of Saint Thomas and I was studying business with focus on law and I saw the most beautiful girl I've ever seen at the time leaving a building. And I did what any red blooded Texan does. He goes to the school administration office and he drops an English class to sign up for whatever they're teaching that building. And that's true story. And in the building was the theater department. And so I fell in love with acting. And I wrote a piece of children's theater and I decided, after school, I was going to drive out to LA and I was going to try and produce that play. And then an agent could I submit you on some commercials? And I said, yeah, if it supplements my writing career, then I got a handful of those and she goes, let me submit some theatrical, which means TV and movie. And I said, absolutely, if it supplements my writing group. Next thing I know I was on a plane to go do young Indiana Jones and the acting kind of took over.
NFL Cardinals Beachum Zambia, intro wrap-Ferry1
"Kelvin beach and his traveled the country as an offensive tackle, playing for the Steelers Jaguars jets and Cardinals since 2012. In March, he made a trip to Zambia after constructing two clean water wells and financing a third. We actually wanted to actually see the work. We wanted to see how it impacted people and how water impacted their lives, how access to what impacted their lives and those who did not have access to how it affected their lives. Beacham was the Cardinals, Walter Payton man of the year in 2021 for his humanitarian work. He's associated with food banks in his hometown and every city where he's played. Beecham also was a champion of local education equity, but his association with world vision has led him to international causes. I met world vision this has to be 2015 with 2014, 2015, and I got introduced to him through the NFL PA as young man Dexter Santos. And he knew what I was doing quite a bit here domestically and I told him to start thinking about things on a global scale. Beacham says he doesn't do it for acknowledgment. I think I'm going to do the work regardless. It's not about whether I can support for the National Football League or the NFL V8 or fans. I would do this work because I think that this is important. This is the legacy that I want to leave for my children. This is the work that I want my children to grow in. Does beach and plan to go back to Zambia? So the question is, do we take Ikea to make due to retirement trip? So we love to see anytime we make an investment so you want to see what does it look like over time. Given his track record of humanitarian effort, there are more international trips in beecham's future. I'm Dave ferry.
"dexter" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"For you? I'm kind of a free agent right now. So I'm sifting through some things. Marquis said in stone, we're going to solidify some stuff here, hopefully this week or next week. And get going. But you'll definitely see me and my face on air. Somewhere. Whether that's on YouTube's via social media, but I'll be not just one place, but not everywhere. So my ubiquitous buddy right there, very good, love it. Thanks so much, Dexter. It's been great. Well, thank you guys for having me for sure. Dex, best wishes, man, best wishes with everything you know that will stay in touch. We got to play some golf, man. Absolutely. Got to play some golf at a 79 yesterday 79. I'm coming after you. I love to see it. I love to see it good after you. Absolutely. Let's go. Let's go. Well, Joe, no surprise to you. You know Dexter Fowler really well, but for a lot of our listeners who maybe obviously know him as a player, you get a little insight into the person and you're even more impressed. That was a real treat. Yeah, that's just that's typical Dex right there. And that's what I was talking about. On a daily basis, you know what to expect as the person who the person is walking in the door. And that's why he's so influential in a Clubhouse. Speaking about there, he was really, really outstanding in 16, but of course you're always going to go through some bad moments, but when he did, it was unrecognizable regarding his personality and how he went about his business with everybody else. And that to me is a real leader and a real leader as a leadoff hitter. I mean, your leadoff hitter is going to go through some bad moments. You might give him a day off, but you're not taking him out of the leadoff spot. So he handled it so well. And we did some good things together, and it's always wonderful to be in his company. And you know what? I know Dexter got every bit out of his career, but hopefully as we're watching spring training games this year, Joe, there's going to be more Dexter Fowler's in this game. I think we're going to see switch hitting come back. We're going to see obviously a premium on athleticism on base stealing. All those qualities that sort of were a little bit devalued with the way the game fell in love with the home run. I think are coming back at a much more entertaining game if first indications of the rule changes in spring training are any indication. So that's a good thing. That'd be very welcoming absolutely. And just last point, I did the same thing with a couple of young hitters. Made them into switch hitters and they'll stay asked when I said today. You just started up that day because you're in a minor league, you don't want to waste a moment. You're okay with a couple bad at bats for a couple hours. Let's just start it today. Get a feel for it. And then we just move forward from there. A great idea. For background, 2009, Dexter's first full year of the big leagues. There were 25 switch hitters who qualified. That's enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title. Last year, there are 13. Well, so, you know, you think about the heydays, which hitters probably the 1980s, and we've kind of gone downhill since then. Maybe it'll come back. Better athletes than as you said, you need some minor league coaches to encourage it as well. Yeah, absolutely. Joey, you got something to take us out here? Yeah, again, I went back to mister twin. I was playing with Kurt Vonnegut a little bit vonnegut kind of messed my head up in 19. What was it 70 something he just kind of, but I love him. I love all of his stuff. But anyway, we're back to Mark. Twain and I love this too because it deals with imagination. You can't depend on your eyes when you're imagination is out of focus. It's so important to be able to visually see things in advance and be willing to try new and different things and to take the to take the lead in those situations. So that's what I get out of that. If you're imagination isn't focus, it really permits your eyes to see more clearly. The great Mark Twain, one of my favorites and the man who said golf is a good walk spoiled. God,
"dexter" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Was my guy. So cool. Pretty good player, man. I saw him in rookie ball pretty good player. The one thing Dex there's a little phrase he was coming out of the dugout one time in Chicago. I don't even know if you're hurting a little bit or I recognize something, but he's walking in front of me going to the on deck circle probably going to hit and I just called him over to remember one thing. You go, we go. And from that moment on, I would repeat that to him before every game. You go, we go. And it was absolutely true. The guy, you think about 15 the home run and Pittsburgh, you think about 16 lead off former any game 7. There's so many big hits that he had had. And just and then he would just, he was an igniter. He's like you said, a classical leadoff hitter that everybody's seeking. Because he could handle it mentally too. Like when you're not going well, you have to be able to handle that also and he handled the down times well too. But you go, we go, always remember that about us, but. Absolutely. And I'm laughing because I remember at 15, I went up to your office. I was struggling. I feel like every at bat just start the game, I was punching out. You remember? Yeah. Okay, all right, so we're gonna change your mindset. You said, okay, what are we gonna do when we start this game today? And I said, probably punch out. And they'd go right ahead and do it, man. It was like, hey, go ahead, go ahead. Just punch out as much as you have to. Yeah, right? But that's the type of person that the type of relationship Joe and I had. He started laughing. I started laughing. I was like, well, I've been doing it. So if I was just keep doing it. But it ended up turning around, so that we go, it definitely helped out. But that's just a confidence he had in me. Like I said, dating back, that goes a long way. It was just true. You were the straw? Yeah, absolutely. You go, we go, he used to, we used to, we used to dap it up, give me a hug. You go, we go. And I said, hey, it's true. Yeah. And Dexter is the same thing game 7 of the World Series, right? That's what you did. It's true. It's true. And then he'd walk up there and hit. That's I forgot all about that outstanding. That's beautiful. Next this has been outstanding, but I've got one more job for you. We'll be back with that in a minute.

Okay, we call it a reading from the book of Joe. Okay. We take our book and we like to think you can crack this book open anywhere and you're going to find something interesting and fun. I like it. We put that to the test with all of our guests. So you get to pick a number anywhere between one and 368. And we'll see what's on that page. So your choice. Let's go 24. I want to shock her number 24. Jim. Where did you come up with that number? I would never have seen that one coming. Oh man, you're going back to Joe's right, right, right. Growing up with his college coach, he talked about norm gigan. Is that how you say it, Joe? Get going, get going. Yes. Who did play for the he played for the Chicago Cubs? He did. Did he play for the cup? How about that? Yeah. So here we go. Page 24. Gigan was never as blunt with Madden as he was one day when he discussed his chances of playing in the major leagues. You know, you're never going to play in the big leagues. You can tell them. The only chance you have of playing pro ball is as a backup catcher, but you ain't never playing the big leagues. Says Madden, I love when coaches were straight up with me. Gig played in pro ball. He had a good idea of what the standard was. I wasn't close to being as good as what he understood that standard to be. Correct. How about that story, Joe? Yeah, I could just, I mean, he was, he's no longer with us. He was a very self confident man. He was, he played it a big league of briefly with the cubs. I think in 1968, 69, he was also the JV basketball coach there, big athlete, went to Colby college in Maine, top, but this guy taught me how to catch. And that was my ticket to professional baseball because I converted the ketchup, my freshman year at college. And this guy was an infielder, but everything he taught me to catch in that freshman year, I heard it again when I got to spring training with the angels and wholesale from del Cano, Jack Hyatt, Chris cannizzaro Larry hives, all these dudes that had all this this pedigree in catching. So I was really fortunate that gig was my skipper at that time, but man. The man had an ego. But it was a lot of fun to play for. I love that. What's that line you have Joe about delivering truth, but with compassion? Yeah, honestly with that compassion equals cruelty. But I was okay with a little bit of cruelty. I mean, coming back from where we came from back in the day I played for Adam minsky I played for norm giggle and I played for Richie rabbits at Jack sidewalk. I mean, these guys that shoot you right between the eyes when you're ten and 11 years old, oh, they tell you how much you think. And so you just had to keep coming back. And I kind of liked it. Kind of liked it. I appreciate that too. Why are you appreciate? You read it that, then I just blow smoke, man. Do whatever EVs do. I really tell me, be honest with me. Hey, I really don't like you. I don't like your game. Okay, cool. Cool. I appreciate that. I appreciate you telling me that instead of being like, hey, you know what? You're great. I can't wait to hear it and then really hate me. Like, it's fine. I can feed food. It's true, man. I'm a big boy. I can handle it. Right. Right. Give it to me. Exactly. Dexter, this has been great, and I'm sure anybody listening to this understands why you are an ultimate glue guy. I appreciate your time. But before we let you go, give us a quick idea besides being a dance dad of what you've got ahead of you. I understand you'll do a little more work for the marquee Sports Network, doing some cubs games. So what's ahead

"Welcome back to the book of Joe podcast our guest is Dexter Fowler 14 years in the major leagues, not bad for a guy who was drafted in the 14th round. And I know Dexter probably had a lot to do with signability. You had offers. I believe from Miami, from Harvard, and you signed on with the rockies. First take me back to that time in your life and making that kind of a decision. Well, I thought I was going to go first round. I just won the night before the draft. I won national player of the year. At the all American gang. And everybody's like, oh, you're going to be the first pick, you know, from anybody here. And I remember that day like it was yesterday and I was sitting in the room and it was the first guy to get drafted and I'm sitting there and I see my dad walking off on calls and I'm like, oh, is this it? So ended up getting drafted into 14th round, found out a few years later, like after I signed, I signed for a first round money, but everybody was like, that's what it took. And I found out somebody had messed had got me. Signability wise. And it was actually one of the coaches that wanted me to play for their team. So I found that out, but all in all, it worked out the way it was supposed to work out. Yeah. I was actually gonna, I signed both sport to play basketball and baseball in the major league. So I couldn't go back and go back to college and play basketball. So at then, I signed end up going with Colorado and the rest is history. History, yeah. I think at the time, weren't you only a right handed hitter? And you wound up and you look at your major league numbers. I've never heard this before, Joe. Natural right handed hitter. And in the big leagues, his better side was the left side. Yeah, I mean, it was times we've talked about that and we became adversarial when we went to St. Louis. You know, there was a time that this boy you could not get him out right handed, man. I tell you why he was hot with the cubs. He got hot right handed. And I wanted to see him up there right handed. The left side was a little bit more movement the right side was more direct to the ball. I think that's when you were on top of your game right hand at my God. It was like Bernie Williams good. It was that good from that side for me. But then he would go through because you hit left handed most of the time as the switch here. You hit left handed. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. We talked about this at dinner. We actually talked about this. And I thank Joe because Joe, 'cause he knew I wasn't getting. So in St. Louis, I'm not gonna name any names, but somebody didn't let me play against lefties. Only right handed hitters. I mean, I was only hitting left hand. So I would hit left handed for probably like a week and a half, two weeks straight and I didn't get any right handed at that. And Joe, we played the cubs and Joe used to flip me every time. That's so good. I grew up hidden right hand. So once I start seeing some pitches, I'm back. It's like riding a bike. But if I don't see any pitches, I'm like timing's off, I'm rolling over stuff. But I used to go up right hand and then tell everybody, there's no way that anybody's getting me out. I'll give myself out right handed, but you can not get me out. Technically, I like your right handed swing better, like I said, that's more short, direct. You'd left hand you had that little thing that would flippy a little before. But when that sucker was timed up right, when you got hot left handed man, nobody could get shot left handed either. It's a classic example of switch to a young guy like that, learns the other side, and then all of a sudden, of course, left handed being the learned side. He's going to face mostly right handed pitchers. So there might be a couple flaws in that, but man, even in Colorado, he hit the ball well right handed for me too. So anyway, this guy can hit well from both sides of the plate and that's why he lasted as long as he did. Did I ever tell you how that came about? Did you know that? No. So I'm in a cage and this is an instructs. Okay. My first year, like nobody's ever like, these guys have never seen me play. So I'm hitting right handed, whatever. And I don't even think I played a game. I go in the cage and I'm just like, hey, y'all flip me some, you know, obviously, if you know me, I goof around a lot, right? So I'm goofing around in the cage, and I'm hitting left handed. And Jimmie Johnson says, hey, he was our roving heating guy. Did you ever hit left handed? I go, no, we just played. My brother and I used to play hormone Derby in our yard because it was smaller, we just hit left handed. But my feet were every day, but everywhere, but I had good hand eye coordination. The next day I get a call and it's like, hey, Bill guy vet, which was our scout and director at the time. Wants to see you in his office. And I'm over here thinking like, this is my first car. I'm like, what the hell did I do? So I go in the office and I sit down and I'm like, my heart's beating and he's like, so we want you to start switching. He's like, no, he goes, the reason he goes the reason I called you to the office today, and I'm like, all right, let me have it. What did I do? I think he's like, 'cause it's like the pretzels off. He's like, we want you to start switching. Jimmy saw your swing. And he said that we think it will help you, you know, getting down the first, you're really fast or whatever. And I said, well, you guys haven't even seen me here, right? He goes, no, you still hit right handed just like, you know, against the righties you'll hit left in it. I said, okay, I'll try it. When do you want me to start? And they were like, today. And I was like, today, you really want me to start today? It was like, absolutely. Go to basque man, which was our equipment guy. And tell him in the morning leagues and tell him you need some left handed back. I was like, okay, cool. So I went in there and asked me, I need some left hand in the back. I can't advance because I'm starting to switch it now. And he started laughing and he goes, what do you want? No, I'm serious. I'm switching it. He goes, there's no left handed vats. All the bad to the same. Same. And so that was the day I started I started switching it. That's awesome. JJ, I know JJ from Arizona JJ and I used to do clinics. Yeah, and then guy vent was one of my players in the minor leagues. I just, I just was with them a couple of weeks. So it's kind of interesting that you have that same kind of history with those guys too. So Dexter's September of 2008, you get called up tenth inning against the Giants. They send you in there to pinch run. Yes. You got to pick up the story from there. Yes, so first of all, let's rewind. So I get there and I see on the day before I get called up, I see Peter gammons on baseball tonight and he said notable

"Hey there, welcome back. It's the latest episode of the book of Joe podcast, the most interesting podcast about baseball and life. With my good buddy Joe Madden and Joe, first off, I gotta check in on you, make sure you're okay because spring training is underway and you are not there for the first time and I don't know how many years how are you doing? I think when 1981 was the first of my last break before that was 19 80 I wasn't there. So 70 6 7 8 9 80 off and then 81 to present tense. I'm here to report I'm okay. Honestly, I played again yesterday. Meaning golf and playing again today, I got to go to Tampa next week. I get an opportunity to play in the valspar pro and then I got another tournament at whisper up and I got another one out here with Wally Joyner and then I eventually do it to jail name it. So and in between that we did the book signing and Savannah which was outstanding. It wasn't just cool it was outstanding. So I'm like really busy. I'm really busy in a good way. So yeah, I'm watching it and we did actually tweet about it. The pitch clock. I thought I was watching bob Gibson pitch for both sides. It was outstanding. It was so cool. And like I said, I thought about this too while I was watching it. Like the other stuff, okay, you know, people find it interesting in the other rules. But the one rule that really is participated within every pitch is that one. That rules the most used rule new rule that's going to be incorporated into the game. And I think that's the best one. I think that's the one that if you're going to attract more youthful fans or more of a viewing audience or just want to come to the ballpark and check it out. That's the one that's going to work and I kind of dig it. It's awesome. I'm with you. I've been telling people it's the greatest thing to happen to baseball since they had nachos and the souvenir batting helmets. And I'm glad to hear you're doing well, Joe. We can ask the same question of Dexter Fowler, who is officially retired as a player from Major League Baseball after an outstanding 14 years in the bigs. Dexter, how are you doing? I'm doing unbelievable. Honestly, I'm more busy. I'm busier than ever. And you know, like you said, usually you go to spring training and it's like, ah, that time. It's that time. But now I'm at home with the girls. I'm a dance dad, and then I'm also doing some TV stuff. So I'm getting calls all over the place. Along with some business things going on support meetings and all that. So I got a lot going on. Including dinner the other night, we went out to dinner at Scottsdale. DoJ had myself Dex Eddie Vedder, Josh green hoffer. Bossy was there, busy was there, Sam Kennedy was a really fun evening. I got to sit next to decks and the moment you walk in the room and Dex was there. I didn't know he was going to be there. He snuck up from behind. And God, it's just typical. I mean, and I was going to bring this up, but I bring it up now. Dex lights up a room, man. He just does. When I first met him when we first got together, the smile began then and it never ends. You can see it right now. And that's a big part of the reason why he played as long as he did. Such a wonderful guy within the Clubhouse and on a team, the players really feed off of his energy. And you can feed off his energy the other night just having dinner with him. So it was great to see you again, my brother. It really was. I'm so happy for this new episode and adventure in your life. I know you're going to be great at it. But I just wanted to throw that out there a bit too. No, I appreciate it. We definitely did. We had fun. We had fun. It was good. I say get the band back together. We remember this on some good stories about those two years and now Joe, Joe was likewise, Joe was one of my favorite managers ever to play for. Well, Joe, can I start with a question for you? Sure. Because you know, we love to talk on this show about glue guys, right? What makes a team a team? Obviously a manager head coach and other sports has a lot to do with that. But there's nothing like having that come within the player ranks. And when we talk about glue guys, I have to imagine that you've got to put Dexter near the top of your list of big time glue guys. What was it about Dexter that made him such a glue guy? Besides that smile. Yeah, regardless, regardless of what was going on, like he had a good day, a bad day. I mean, he had a great run. During that year, but also he went into a little bit of a slump, but the thing is, you never know when he showed up at the ballpark. He was always the same cat every day. So you know what to expect, you know what you could count on as a manager and then as a teammate. I mean, some guys will walk in the room surly. And they don't want to give. They don't want to they just want to take all the time. They don't want to give. But Dax is the kind of guy that wants to give all the time. And he's there like he'll sense that somebody else isn't doing so well. And in spite of the fact, maybe he's running through a bad moment. He's still going to give to that guy. And to me, that's really probably the best definition I can give you of a leader is that he recognizes and gives to everybody else in the room and he's not always seeking to be to get things from other people. Dex is a giver and every player in that room felt it. I appreciate it. Where's that come from, Dex? I had to be my parents. They still keep me humble. They humbled me all the time. So I think that's half of it. And at the end of the day, like Joe said, I feed off energy. And I don't want anybody to have any type of ill energy, 'cause I feel like a lot of people, you know, in this game, we're around each other all the time. And we all need to be on the same page at the end. At the same time, it's crazy, it's crazy to see a guy come in because I feel like I've gone through a lot of this a lot of these things. And sometimes you get caught up in baseball and baseball only. And people don't realize that at the end of the day, right? And we're going to excel like the best thing ever was Joe said, hey, if you feel good in it, wear it, remember? That right there, like be comfortable in your own skin. Be able to come in, I think you'll have more success if you come in and you're comfortable where you're at. Whether you're having a good day, a bad day, there's always guys, there should be your brothers there to pick guys up and keep guys whole guys accountable. Yeah, if you think you look hot weird, I mean, the big thing for me was about this was one of my tenants too, is that the more freedom given the greater respect and discipline returned, I may have speaking to myself too as a young player back in the day whether it was football or baseball primarily. The coaches that really permitted me to be myself in a sense, and were there to help when I absolutely needed to help it otherwise. They permitted me to make mistakes, or they permitted me to do something good without a whole lot of interference, and that's how you grow. And that's it. I mean, I think as an athlete, as a world class athlete, which all Major League Baseball players are. The more they are, they are able to express themselves and be themselves. Then you will find all of their abilities on the field at any particular moment. The moment you feel constricted and you're being controlled in a sense, then you're not going to see the full impact of that particular player. Talking into baseball, I think I could talk about the corporate world also. But this is something I learned way back in the day, whether it was high school, then going to college and talk about coach route in the book of Joe, he was my backfield coach at Lafayette this guy taught me how to accept or teach through communication and not intimidation. And to me, that's the best way to go about

We watched it right before we recorded this episode. So these are not married. They're just some guy she was date. But he thought you, I'm going to phase you out of the paper. Ever since I saw you. Yeah, and it was hard at first through the bushes and shit like that, but eventually they get like the shower window, you get a perfect view. So it's okay. No, it's just I saw I saw that she was a really she was a really nice girl and sweet. Right. Right. She didn't want anything from me except half of what I would put in for her.

You never have a job. You never like, you don't, you don't deserve that. That's high caliber for what you should be shooting at. Shit, it's more high caliber for what I should be shooting in life. But fuck it, I shot a little bit higher than that guy. And, you know, I was the next ticket that got punched at the deli counter. I got to walk up and get my and get my stuff and take it to the picnic, but yeah. It just when I saw him, I was like, no, man, you don't, you're gonna ruin this chick's life. She has way more potential than you have in the next 60 years of your life. Definitely. And that has something said about what you were raised. You know, work for what you get and don't be a piece of shit. I mean, we're just partners, man. At the end of the day, you know, if we had kids, it changes a little bit. You have to you do become you have to adjust to being different types of married people with kids. I saw my brother go through it, but I think for the most part, maybe you just kind of need somebody to go through the other half of the shit with. That's right. All it is. We're just we're out here for as long as we're out here, man. I just need, and you'll see life is set up to be with somebody. You'll see these guys that are single in like 35, and I'm like, dude, how the fuck are you doing it, buddy? How are you in a fucking apartment with a car? All this shit, like, and you just have no one else to face the fucking troubles of life with. It's too much, man. Do you ever think on your own? That sucks. Yeah, it's good to have somebody. It's good to have somebody that like your romantic with that you can talk to. And that you can sit on a Sunday and just bullshit with and be friends with for a day. And if you're being jacked up, they'll tell you, hey, you know, dumb ass right now. Yeah. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, those are my favorite. I love to remind her. I'm not so keen on when she has to remind me.

You as a middle aged man living in newburyport who had to find business but it was at this point that he began he string of insanely successful yet at face. Incredibly stupid investments. The first investment was in continental dollars during the revolutionary war. The continental congress issued the first american currency and it quickly became worthless. The phrase not worth a continental came from this currency almost. No one accepted the currency by the end of the war. Yet many people especially poor people were paid in this currency and could do nothing with it. After the war many of the wealthy citizens in newburyport began buying continentals mostly as a charity gesture. Dexter however wanted to earn the respect of the local elite who never quite respected him and went all in he purchased the worthless currency just to give people something in return any purchase the currency for less than a penny to the dollar later when the federal government was formed they agreed to purchase all of the outstanding continental dollars at one percent of face value.

Go to pick up one three gilead of better sex for three going on meeting me gomez day metal supplement. Okay iressa on. And off for the love of god. So here's what's interesting. It's the first video that willa was ever featured in for buzzfeed but she insisted prior channel of mine called aggressive comex and a boiler was first introduced as a superhero Because this was a channel that was predominantly white male audience. I talked about video games and comic books and movies. Sifi strictly me being nerd and then at some point i did a movie review of the film kick ass and me and my writing partner for the show was to the cuban well because he knew that i kind of already did that sort of thing and so it was the same terrible wig that you do see in that buzzfeed video i think i through like baby powder on it to make gray and she had like this painted red mask over her eyes with like a fly swatter as were weapon and then eventually it made no sense for the channel. But you can tell that. I yearned to make this sort of content. It is interesting that something that is as big as a bulla takes that many iterations to get there like. I think there's a lesson in there for any creative. That is not necessarily that. The opening gambit is where you land now never being a nerd is as much a part of your identity and culture as being cuban. It seems did you see characters on tv or in media. Who has a latino nerd you identified with not really wasn't until recently that i started seeing that representation especially in a show like no spooky because these are a bunch of latino gods that are into the macab and they're a bunch of nerds and outsiders because that's a big part of me to what most approximated your own experience i would say. A lot of that was in black television. You see urkel you see. Carlton banks a lot of these like nerdy people of color on tv. Maybe sometimes says from that seventies show me. He had like a bit of a nerdy flair to him. I feel like latinos on tina's specifically were usually depicted as like very sensual loud colorful. You know things sofia vergara in modern family that was the typical depiction of what was and. So that's why. I had a hard time in the audition room. I didn't fit any mold of what especially miami casting paint a picture for me of what auditioning in miami looked like. It was a nightmare for me. I would show up and for those who don't know me. I'm like five feet pasty skinny little shits and he but then i have this like deep voice. No one knows what to do with me. So then i shopped to these auditions and they were usually little late sorta lottery or like colgate but then i would be up against women my age but they looked like supermodels and then there was me so then i just never felt like. I was sexy in us to sell toothpaste. I remember my very very first universal casting audition. It was for the florida lottery. And i had to be like this sexy. You're even an award. These like plastic clear stripper heels. I don't know. I don't know what i was thinking but i was nineteen years old. The silver lining of this terrible experience is that emotive issue to become a creator. I was tired of this. I was so tired. And then i did a couple extra work. Gigs was extra on. Burn notice and dexter. And guess what. I was scantily clad and tacky his hell because that's what they thought of people in miami. All of these shows always depicted people from miami in the same way and it always took place in south beaten always involve drugs and sex and violence. Which is another reason why. I'm working so hard today. To eventually sollers show. That depicts miami in a more authentic way so yeah it pushed me to go to school and learn how to do everything else on my own.

"I'm John Dexter, This is the John Baxter Show. I welcome Chris Rico, the CEO of Scholars calm. This is the scholar report. We are in the interregnum between the Trump Administration and the Biden administration were also in that pause between when the vaccines exists when they're being distributed. And when we can re open our economies and share again, the prosperity that was here just a moment ago in February, March of 2020, Chris Good evening to you first. Bloomberg has a fetching article today. About reflation, not inflation. You have a global business you travel widely. Inflation is the bugaboo of the 20th century from the sixties, my youth to the eighties, my seniority when I was out of college in New York. Inflation, damaged the U. S economy, inhibited prosperity and crippled the stock market. It went away, but it were people worry about it coming back. In your travels. Reflation is the positive thing. Growth brings what appears to be the growth and prices. Are we seeing that now? Or is it too early to look for reflection? Good evening to you. Even done so far would say it appears to be too early. The financial markets specifically, the stock market has been under a ever growing bubble. When that bubble pops is anyone's guess, but because there's so much money that's being invested into the system from government subsidy and other so you have an inflationary bubble around assets, stocks, homes and others. The said in the U. S government over the last, say 25 30 years his spent in order an amount of time trying to minimize inflation have that healthy what they would consider a 2% inflation rate. Fearing that the best way to maximize jobs and reach full employment. The challenge now being there so many artificial factors impacting the economy from stimulus to the virus to other, it's hard to get a good read, but in general inflation is good. If you do not have inflation, If you don't have growth in wages, another you risk what happened to Japan in the nineties of a deflationary cycle that is something very difficult to break out of. The politics of the moment include President elect Joe Biden. Announcing another relief plan. Another stimulus package of nearly true $2 trillion, including minimum wage to be raised federally to $15 and larger checks to be mailed out to individuals, whether they're working or not. In addition to emergency aid for states and local governments, in particular large cities such as the one I'm in that has a budget gap. Will that to your measure, help the small businesses that you watch? Struggle as you travel across the country, Chris It effectively. This was simply a sugar high. The government is putting money in people's pockets because it's politically popular to do so the on leeway to get many of the businesses that are challenged in this pandemic. Um to Ah, good state is to reopen the economy's get the vaccine out and try to return to normal quickly as possible. The government cannot print us out of This business cycle and all we're doing is delaying the pain. Chicago Lori Lightfoot, the mayor of Chicago, who has been through a difficult year of turmoil, and, of course, the shutdown in the pandemic. Is announcing. In some fashion everything here is a little caged. But in some fashion, there will be a reopening of restaurants and bars and other places where people can meet. Because the reason is given the private gatherings are not regulated and their ah source of infection. In addition, the economy is broken and reopening with people. Given the right to proceed carefully or not, is a way forward for Chicago. We also have a governor in New York Governor Cuomo. Who says that he's studying reopening the bars, the restaurants, the casinos, the theaters because, as the governor says, If we don't have reopened the economy, we won't have one to reopen. Is this a positive Chris? Or are they teasing us again? It's a positive, but I would say in traveling last several weeks in many states, both blue and red in many cities, both blue and red. Many of the restaurants and bars are reopening on their own on the simple basis that if they do not reopen They're out of business, and you have people's livelihood that have been taken away by the government. Now for months after month after month after month, they have nothing to lose. So they would favor taking a fine or penalty or risk to, at least have a chance of staying alive, as opposed to guaranteed death by staying closed, So I think the Governors and some of the mayor's air saying, Well, we're going to reopen into it gradually, that's already happening. People have had enough and they're taking back their freedom. The puzzle is the vaccine is here. And the decision to distribute the vaccine is in the hands of state government, city governments, municipalities counties. And they're mixed stories. You point me to one story about the states that are doing best for distribution of the vaccine. They get their limited numbers of vaccines, a cloud each week and each week the steak. It's a new supply and is charged with the distribution. That's simple enough. West Virginia, you point to, and I believe North Dakota are doing very well. New York is not doing well. California is not doing well. Is that the nature of big government? Chris? We shouldn't ask too much from people who regarded the post office as acceptable behavior these many decades. Fascinating. The see Some of these governors specifically blue state governors who have said We're waiting on federal ex federal y federal Z. We're waiting on a vaccine. Okay, Now you've got it. Who will hold the governor's accountable for that distribution, making sure within those States and across the country that that's done in efficient away as possible in West Virginia, where they're having great success. They operational honest the National Guard to spearhead that distribution so government can do things right. If they're smart enough, they're focused on it. But now we're starting to peel away the politics and get to the reality of how fast can you get this distributed out? You have a global business, so I wanna make everybody in America feel better. By asking. How is Europe doing right now? What you know from your colleagues. Europe is most certainly in the increasingly darkest of dark winters, where in the UK in the Netherlands in Germany, and many of the countries there now locked down to their houses, with the only ability to go out. You go to purchase food, But you're seeing an increasingly tight lockdown and also increasingly despondent and angered citizenry saying, How long can this continue? Is there food security? What do you hear, Chris? In the UK Specifically, we're getting reports from our employees there that shelves are starting to become more and more bear and with the action that Mr Johnson took today to further shut off. The UK from all air transit in all transit in and out of the country. The fear would be It's only going to get worse. All right, so that makes us feel better because it's not that bad here in l. A. I'm told that One third of the people have already been tested positive or recovered from the virus. The lockdowns have not succeeded. If that was the aim, what would have been worse than one third? I guess his two thirds However, I'm also told from a colleague that there's generally people not obeying the mandates of staying home or not going out. That doesn't mean that businesses are reopening. But it does mean that it might. We might have reached a point in California where the government is not to be trusted. You travel widely, Chris Are there mixed stories across the country? As the newspapers say, the Red States air open. The blue states are not our their pockets everywhere. Their pockets everywhere and you're also just seeing people that have had enough. I think the populace seeks to comply and seeks to do the right thing. But it's very difficult to say to someone who does not have a job cannot afford to pay the mortgage or buy food or Christmas gifts for the kids. You need to stay home..
The Right Tools
"Prior to installation of the robotic tool stowage unit nassau's robotic external leak locator was stored inside the international space station. The tool is an important unit. Used to help astronauts identify dangerous ammonia leaks in the space station's cooling system but deploying the robotic nose was a complicated process that was dependent on the availability of an airlock involved waiting an additional twelve hours to allow the gas analyzer to clear itself of internal gases and required astronauts to travel outside the station. The newly installed robot hotel is now the leak locators home and the leak. Location process is much more streamlined. As long as dexter. The canadian space agencies robotic arm is available. Dexter can use the tool to detect ammonia leaks eliminating the need for astronauts to perform the same task during the spacewalk. Meanwhile the external storage unit provides a warm protected place for critical tools like the leak locator to be stored until they are needed again for innovation now. I'm jennifer poet.

How Aimee Garcia Took Charge of Her Hollywood Career
"Amy thanks for doing this. Thank you for helping me. I want to start with Scrappy heart Productions because while I am sure that we have some listeners in our midst who are aspiring actors says I'm going to guess that more are trying to figure out how to go from worker to owner from performer to Creator. So take me back to the moment where you decided that you wanted to have your own production company. It kind of happened organically with glow so they asked my writing partner and I who's also bodiqua. She's Puerto Rican and wrote A New York Times bestseller called crazy is my superpower. We were talking. We love superheroes and we love comics and we never saw ourselves represented and they asked us to write glow the comic based on the Netflix series wage. And that was the first time that we thought let's highlight the Mexican character in there that we felt could have been more mature dived into during the series. What if we pitched that relationship between Yolanda's character and the Muslim character and we pitched it to Netflix and they loved it off and they got their own covers on the comics. And that was the first time I thought oh my goodness. This is so cool that I was able to with my writing partner highlight a Mexican carrier. And have her be the center of the story even though she's a peripheral character on the show. So I have been following your writing partner and now your production company. Mendez for years because she and I both grew up in Union City, New Jersey and so years ago when she was in the WWE. My mom was like my mom's always on the lookout for Union City kids. So she was like a Union City kid in the WWE and it's like oh and she's Latina like this is amazing. We're so you guys were writing Partners before you were producing Partners, correct? We were writing Partners, we wrote Globe which we love doing and then we started writing Dungeons and Dragons and she's like, hey, I found this article on this badass female viking who had a hero's burial and we were like, let's highlight her and she had like this huge scar on her face. And then we did this Disney writers program and they said you should start a production company because you guys have so many ideas and you guys run off. Dammit with comedy and drama and T and you guys should create your original material and then we were like, yeah, we we should do that and then the kicker was really the, Khan's that is when our fans I would go around for Lucifer and she would go around for WWE and they'd ask us what's next like what are you doing? Next? We love your character and we thought well, let's check them an answer. Let's say we're creating our own characters and making these peripheral diverse characters the centers of their own stories. And then we just did it. I think this was all the love in my life, which is I am genuinely surprised that it took that long for you to realize that you wanted and needed a production company. I know, you know what it is. I've been really lucky as an actor. I recorded Modoc while I was shooting Lucifer and I filmed El Chicano while I was shooting Lucifer and I've always worked as an actor. I've had a bunch of failed pilots and I've had success with Dexter and shows that were supposed to be big and only lasts a year like rush hour and Trauma and I just throw myself all in and I think I didn't have the bandwidth to think outside of that kind of singular horse race track. I wish I would have done this sooner. I write 8 hours a day. I just dedicated myself for the past three years to writing every day. I have off and any time I finish a take I'll just run to my computer and right. So what was the first thing you did once you in a j decided that you wanted to start a production company content content is King whether it's you getting the rights to an article or writing it yourself off. Of or putting together a pitch for an existing IP like a j did with crazy as my superpower IP is everything and if you can have original Ip, that's the most important thing. So I really think putting pen-to-paper is the first step whether it's an article a book a script. I mean a g and I both wrote Our Own scripts and then with my show I was looking for a showrunner to help me write this pilot for a family Latino comedy that I want to write. I just ended writing it myself life. That's why we call the scrappy heart cuz we when we got the job for glow we didn't even know how to write a comic book. We literally YouTube how to write a comic book and like DIY like we're total DIY.
How Aimee Garcia Took Charge of Her Hollywood Career
"Amy thanks for doing this. Thank you for helping me. I want to start with Scrappy heart Productions because while I am sure that we have some listeners in our midst who are aspiring actors says I'm going to guess that more are trying to figure out how to go from worker to owner from performer to Creator. So take me back to the moment where you decided that you wanted to have your own production company. It kind of happened organically with glow so they asked my writing partner and I who's also bodiqua. She's Puerto Rican and wrote A New York Times bestseller called crazy is my superpower. We were talking. We love superheroes and we love comics and we never saw ourselves represented and they asked us to write glow the comic based on the Netflix series wage. And that was the first time that we thought let's highlight the Mexican character in there that we felt could have been more mature dived into during the series. What if we pitched that relationship between Yolanda's character and the Muslim character and we pitched it to Netflix and they loved it off and they got their own covers on the comics. And that was the first time I thought oh my goodness. This is so cool that I was able to with my writing partner highlight a Mexican carrier. And have her be the center of the story even though she's a peripheral character on the show. So I have been following your writing partner and now your production company. Mendez for years because she and I both grew up in Union City, New Jersey and so years ago when she was in the WWE. My mom was like my mom's always on the lookout for Union City kids. So she was like a Union City kid in the WWE and it's like oh and she's Latina like this is amazing. We're so you guys were writing Partners before you were producing Partners, correct? We were writing Partners, we wrote Globe which we love doing and then we started writing Dungeons and Dragons and she's like, hey, I found this article on this badass female viking who had a hero's burial and we were like, let's highlight her and she had like this huge scar on her face. And then we did this Disney writers program and they said you should start a production company because you guys have so many ideas and you guys run off. Dammit with comedy and drama and T and you guys should create your original material and then we were like, yeah, we we should do that and then the kicker was really the, Khan's that is when our fans I would go around for Lucifer and she would go around for WWE and they'd ask us what's next like what are you doing? Next? We love your character and we thought well, let's check them an answer. Let's say we're creating our own characters and making these peripheral diverse characters the centers of their own stories. And then we just did it.

Trump’s medical team says he could be discharged from Walter Reed as soon as Monday
"Could be headed back to the White House as soon as Monday that from the president's medical team who held a briefing today, here's a clip from that Dr Sean Connolly, speaking in front of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Over the course of his illness. The president has experienced two episodes, Transit drops his oxygen saturation, and and there there was was much much more more information information from from today's today's briefing, briefing, particularly particularly compared compared to to yesterday's. yesterday's. Let's Let's welcome welcome NPR NPR science science correspondent correspondent Richard Richard Harris. Harris. Good Good Morning, Morning, Richard Richard and Dr Carlos del Rio, an epidemiologist at Emory University. Hello, do you Are you? Well, Richard, I'm going to start with you. But let's hear first. Ah clip from Dr Brian Garbled E. On the treatments the president has received. We continue to plan to use a five day course of Rome disappear. In response to transient low oxygen levels as Dr Conley has discussed. We did initiate Dexter methadone therapy, and he received his first dose of that yesterday. And our plan is to continue that for the time being All right, Richard, What does that tell you? Well, that tells me that the president was at fifth had very least serious course of disease, and he's getting sort of the top line treatment to address it. The decks the method zone is a steroid. Drug that helps tap down inflammation, which can be a really bad sign in somebody who's immune system may be starting to overreact to the virus. So doctors have come to realize that this is actually capable of saving lives in people. This is the only drug that has actually been demonstrated to do that with Corona virus, and so they've given it to him that will really help stabilize his immune system. That's the hope and of course, the room disappear is a drug that is designed to stop the virus from mass producing itself inside the body. The FDA is authorised its use, but specifically people who are really sick enough that they need help breathing. It has now become evident that the The president's had a couple of episodes where his oxygen levels were dropping. And and at least one instance where they gave him supplemental Oxygen. So s so it looks as though he's you know, getting pretty aggressive treatment for his for his condition, which seems appropriate And surprising to me is how quickly they expect that he may actually be able to go home. Maybe as soon as tomorrow. Well, Dr Del Rio. Let's talk about that. We heard in the clip in the introduction. The doctors they're talking about the president's oxygen levels. As we know with covert 19. It does affect the lungs and oxygen. Saturation is a real big indicator about how well you're doing. So, what did you hear there? Well, you know, I heard several things that hurt that. He he was there when you need to put things together. He's initially diagnosed. He's got mild of these, like, you know, 84% of people of covert have smiled. But they made the decision to give them the one of the two call antibodies Regeneron one and that's currently being studied in people with mild disease. We don't need to be in the article. Then his options saturation crops, and the decision is to transfer into the hospital because once your oxygen saturation cross below 94%, even if it's transitory. You're immediately in the category of no longer mild or moderate, but in the category of being released and its investigations that boat from disappear and Memphis on has proven to be effective. And that's exactly what the president has received was given disappeared. He conceded that the medicine and that's where he currently is right now, Dr Florio. This's important so I'm going to put this to you all along. They had been describing The president's symptoms as mild. You seem to be suggesting that the moment his oxygen levels dropped and he was given supplemental oxygen and then put on these experimental treatments. You could no longer categorize him what he was experiencing as mild symptoms. That is correct. Correct at that point in time, the president no longer having me having mild disease. That's how he's having severe disease, and he's put in a different category. And you know, that explains why Mark Meadows was concerned as express complains why he was actually he told us you know the president. We were very concerned. You know exactly that. I think he's telling you, he was telling the truth. But then I guess the question is your your doctor. Why wouldn't the presidents of the president's doctors have explained it in the same way? I mean, we heard today. Dr Conley say that he wanted to give an upbeat assessment. But that seems at odds with perhaps what the truth may have been. That is correct. I mean, I don't want to to say you know, but I was quite frankly, very disappointed by the press briefing yesterday. I think the press briefing yesterday. What spent he was speaking like a spin doctor. He wasn't speaking like a medical doctor. And you know the job of a loss in medicine when you're doing something like this, especially when somebody who is as important as president is to is to speak the truth and to be transparent, and I think, you know, Unfortunately, we are an administration were transparency and truth has not been at the forefront of this of this response. And we're seeing even in this case when the president of the patient

Robot Can Sniff Out Leaking Fluids
"Robots with the right tools can simplify life for astronauts this innovation. Now, bringing you stories behind the ideas that shape our future prior to installation of the robotic tool stowage unit NASA's robotic external. League locator was stored inside the international space. Station the tool is an important unit used to help astronauts identify dangerous ammonia leaks in the space station's cooling system but deploying the robotic knows was a complicated process that was dependent on the availability of an airlock involved waiting an additional twelve hours to allow the gas analyzer. To clear itself of internal gases and required astronauts to travel outside the station. The newly installed robot hotel is now the leak locators home and the leak location process is much more streamlined as longest dexter up the Canadian space agencies. Robotic arm is available. Dexter can use the tool to detect ammonia leaks eliminating the need for astronauts to perform the same task during a spacewalk. Meanwhile, the external storage unit provides a warm protected place for critical tools like the leak locator to be stored until they are needed again.

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is urging Americans to ignore President Trump when he talks up various election tactics. What signals is that he's engaged in fright and fear as usual, the California Democrat tells MSNBC. Trump is using fright and fear.
