I do believe in God I. Do believe that we are God. The only reason I ask is because when when you're speaking about the different. Thoughts on this talk how it's going to be the second coming of God, and you know the rapture and all that for a lot of people that. Excuse me for a lot of people that aren't really religious and don't believe in the religion and then are like like right here anything to religion all of a sudden they saw bullshit. I'm like like you. I was born Catholic brought up Catholic I don't know. Shit. About the Catholic Church. Which is ads of fucking vital areas.

Vansilli talks about CS and trying out Diabolical
"Our next guest on the centering East sports podcasts has been involved with the scene for a very long time before it was even called E. Sports, believe it or not please welcome to the show van. Silly guys. Thank you so much for having me. It's going great in some kicked in for the past two days. So I'm like a little bit groggy here and there, but still super excited to be part of the show. Thank you so much for having me. You've been. Go ahead tell us about I mean he you've been pretty busy. It's okay to be a little. For sure for I. Think I think as we're GONNA talk about him I'm I'm assuming very soon is. Valerie Valerie has been keeping myself busy, not only just trying to follow the scene, but just trying to rank up as well because I I feel like to this day even though I've been in the scene for such a long time for sports, you still have to prove yourself to the community so I don't want people to go like, oh should caster kick w what a bad castor you know so I I need to bring myself up to the diamond platform at least and then hopefully immortal at some point. It's cool that you mentioned that I wanNA actually touch on that for a second say. been casting for a long time right? Not since what two thousand and three? Thousand two, thousand and three. It was my first ever event I started really dippy my toes into it in two thousand and two with quake three urban terror. So we're we're going way back at that point you know. So we tim and I both played quake three. Urban terrorists. Okay. Okay. What what is urban terror I in another interview you? Yes. So it could actually it was the the MoD for quake three actually helped me transition over to counteracting duty one when those came out because urban terror was kind of like. A similar version of action quake with you guys played quake. quake. But if not, you could compare counterstrike with with some bunny hopping, including stamina and sliding. So it was a lot of. You had to buy weapons. So they were they were actually Actually, had to choose weapons instead of buying. So you're allowed to choose for example, let's say you go end for each one of them had little perks, and if you chose certain perks than it would nullify getting certain type of equipment, she could banish your teammates by budget holding caps lock, and then the the they're able to go off way but the damage internal organs shot in the leg or no body or head has that type of damage. So it has that type of hit. Boxes. So you really have to be good and in terms of aiming for the head to to make sure that you kill Vassar but the the same style is still very counterstrike he where it's like a five five or six six but you bunny hop across the map and plant bombs on onto different sites, and of course, the opponents have to defuse or you have just a regular team survivor. So it's just like within a timer, you have to kill everybody at a certain point. Survivor played coming from that arena shooter world. ANY INTERESTING DIABOLICAL I've been playing diabolical with like the first Beta came out I love it I'm I'm really not good at it. Actually I'm good with the I'm with the the what they call the rocket launcher I forgot what the they have different course but the one that's like the rail gun holy crap. I'm not good with a really be more like when I play to increase I was all about rails but now I just can't hit anything I. Think I got that boom that funny hit me but. The boomer foul yeah one hundred percent I still I still love watching fatality play I still love watching lex play and de can play as well and of course, they're screaming a lot and you see a couple of local tournaments or smaller tournaments with like a Dang and all them playing him to just to be able to see like PS PSB arena ps instead of being quick champions what they tried to do I'm just happy to see a different style or that style comeback with diabolical to what quarter cle the routes used to be for for quick. Do you think the arena shooter will ever come back in a big way. With diabolical I think it will to be honest like because when when you when you used to launch a for example painkiller or quake three, CPA, it was all about how fast people are moving around the map in how good they were in terms of aiming but also predicting where your opponents going to be because you have to control the rail, you had to control the Rock and you have to control the items. There's so much mental timing that goes into playing a repeat that people don't really understand the the whole concept around good you have to be to be top. Notch in arena ps but as a simple spectator, it's so much easier to follow. Because now you know it's a one vs one. You know who you're following your when you're looking at the screen and you know basically the concept of He needs to pick up weapons he needs to the other guy you look at the HP, you look Winter GonNa, pick up armor, and then you know that there's going to be like the whole time or kind of thing what I like about diabolical in the dual into dual range in what the ad is the i? Think it's called Golden Kill or The last kill. Agar's should have something. You have to basically within a ten minute timer. If you're actually destroying the guy that tarmac goes down a little bit faster, and then once it gets to that timer, the wouldn't lead still has to do one more kill to secure the win. So there's still a chance for the second person to to make a comeback into the game and hopefully win a sudden death overtime or something, which is great because back then again, when looking quake three and you're looking at. Painkiller it's like if the guys by five enters two minutes, left users hiding for the rest of the map and he's just GonNa win by time. Even with quake champions just with this last quake con championship like the forget the guys who were in the finals like the guy was up by eight kills and it was like. Yeah. Exactly. It's super boring. So I think that adds a nice concept and a good little changed uranium ps where I think I think I could actually get pretty big I. Mean you have some big names that are still support and behind it like I said like Didi keys in there and and I'm a digi wheat lows playing it similar it from time to time and he has like it i. mean it's it's produced by good studios and two good has been very, very, very much involved with with sports in his in his days. and His career as well. So I think I think they have the right people to try to push into the next level.

I think it's over a thousand oil workers that have been laid off. One of the company is completely. Shut Down Lager. People EARN EMPLOYEES CIVILLY TRAGIC. But we know at the same time. And that's why we see that our air is a little cleaner a usually here in Kern county. We are women the worst areas of pollution for air pollution in the country. And we know that that air pollution really affects not only the physical health especially if the children but also the mental health of children. Here we have Not only to freeways that can make your highway ninety nine and highway five of but then we have all of the pollution that comes from the Agricultural Industry Caesar industrial growers that have not really converted their tractors They're so easy in a lot of diesel. It's a big struggle and when you try to bring to the attention they consider this to be an attack instead of thinking. Okay what do we have to do to make them more economically friendly jobs for people so these are the challenges that we have ahead of us as we try to convert all of the fossil fuel industries into industries.

I see this what I thought was fog rolling in but I thought how can you have fog in the summertime? Well it was a pesticide residue. That was rolling in. That was one of the first things that farmer who's complained about about the effects of Pesticides. And so we had so many cases of pesticide poisonings. Sometimes Terry crews like thirty. Forty people would been poisoned at the same time. How can this happen? Slow regard for the health farm workers so one of the first contracts that I signed a day. Employers tell exactly how many pesticides they were going to spray and where they were going to be spread out and then we passed legislation to make sure that the appeals are posted of when they sprayed some of these dangerous pesticides and then we work very very hard to get some of these dangerous pesticides restricted and banned forever and unfortunately a lot of pesticides we had because like Didi they were then shipped to Mexico to Latin American countries.

Paul Theroux's Mexico Journey
"More than fifty years of writing about his epic journeys in Travel Books and novels. Paul through has recently finished a series of road trips on the back roads of Mexico. He wanted to see for himself who lives there how they live and what's really behind the headlines about a migration crisis from south of the US border and by the way you'll have to pardon my weak voice at the time we recorded our interview. It's better now. Paul theroux welcome Doc Ricketts a pleasure to be with you. You know this is such an exciting adventure you went on and right at the beginning of the book you write the Mexican border in the edge of the known world only shadows and danger beyond it and working figures. Hungry criminal predatory fanged fanatical enemies an ungovernable rabble eager to pounce on the unwary traveller so you decided to travel. Tell us where you went on this trip. And why by the rest of that senators and a Tutti fruity of grizzled gringos accident. So why why. Because I noticed that people were stereotyping Korea Typing Mexicans Mexicans who come across the border why they come that illegal looking for welfare making trouble and I thought one of the reasons as we traveled your a great traveller. Rick is to destroy the stereotype to find out what people are really like. What's this story and we find the come from? All sorts of places is in Mexico they might be billion as they might be millionaires. That might have no money at all. Some people in Mexico have less than the average person in Kenya or Bangladesh Rush. So it's not a simple situation but to see it at its best or to see it most clearly. I thought I WANNA go alone. I want to go on my own car. I WANNA the drive up and down. The border. The border that everybody talks about but no one knows that firsthand as written about much and I want to see it drive along the aboard and then drive deep into Mexico and I thought I bought a car for this purpose secondhand car. That wasn't very notable and off. I went not very noticeable but it had Massachusetts license plates on it. That was a little unfortunate. The police said you know they. They looked at my plates. And then they pull you off the road and they say Whether or Saturday do you know what I can do to you and you say what exactly do you want. And then they say pay me some more Didi. Is that the open. This happens but people say how awful and I think. Yeah how awful but on the plane of snakes is travel book and travelers travel writers.

I can go from Israel to Palestine I in the cold where I could go between East and West. You were south of the wall and you wrote about the women in the diners there that kind of saw you you as a maybe a ticket to the north.

"Gas like you can find for Wednesday next seven, Boston's going full hard Tampa. You know, might be a little, let them they really like decide like, yeah, let's play spoiler fuck these guys. I don't know. I think like being eliminated from the wild card is gonna hurt them. I guess, technically they're stole tiebreaker. Yes, that's why seven. Four. Three were good. Are we goods seven known fourth? No, we're not good. Seven, four threes when as get it? Yes. So writer six in one. The Ke's can go foreign three. Rice big, go five and two. They're on the road for they are on the. They're on the road on the real quick. I think it's it's the angels. The angels coming up there at Seattle for three in at the angels for three say six games. So I see two losses there. Yeah, I think so. I don't think that's two losses means we can go fucking three and four. Yeah. So. I mean, I just want me they want today. I being terrible shape, but it they lost the Minnesota grand. Be nice if we swept him have, we'd have to almost be lock of at once day. But I mean, so back the DD the reason I get past them with the wildcard is, I mean, hetch area is going to, you know, he'd play short. Glacier, got a second, or they align up where possibly Walker would play second and glib, replay, short and relates in the later innings. You suffered hetch various short move, glare back the second. That's your offense. Defense lineup. If you just wanna go full defense, you start Danny their short. What would you prefer? I mean, we're offering the lineup, you want walk in. It's not like he's a liability at second or glaciers liability, New Yorker, short key. He can hit one out, like, you know, I had survery, whatever's name is we want to pronounce it. I, I don't think it's, I don't wanna just sacrifice that much offense for the defense when I think they'd be fine defensively their way. I agree. I'm not called item. Knock if they do not have if they do not have Didi for awhile CRA game, I'm giving them less than fifty percent chance of winning the game. Okay. So the the injury is to his right wrist. I guess it was jammed when he slid home, can we stop sliding headfirst home? It just never works out. It would jammed up. He didn't even realize until this morning. That's why like you see him celebrating after the game. Although I don't remember seeing him too much in the post game celebration for the quenching the playoffs. But he said in the morning was very sure. So they checked it out. I'm just gonna pull the quote isn't encouraging quote out there. I have some movement in there. They say, like they say these things like this happened other players. Some of them have played through. We're going to see how it goes. It feels better if it feels better, I'll be back in there so we can make that playoff decision. I would not want to sit out and watch that water game. He's up there high level optimism. He can return this year. I think he'll be back. I, I think I'm a little uneasy that it's the right wrist and that's throwing wrist and really no room d. h. him because that FOX up the outfield and stands pretty much got a d. h. or judge whatever they decide, it will be. It'll be sen- by. I mean, we'll see how he took a course on shots at ice will see Iraq's tomorrow on a lot more tomorrow big day. Yeah, he wakes up and he's still massive pain that will suck no doubt about corrobos texting on the side is very weird, like dead serious. Like he'll be back like I've had the same injury, blah, blah, blah. Knowing fuck about you had the same injury, he'll play through it. So you know that cards coming de camp, big play through it. And I in my sixth grade little neighbors league twelve in when I was twelve sick, the fucking man shared good for you. We will not do anything. The playoffs past Walker game without de grace case in point need the gotten a lot of this shorts, the feeling ability with the combination of his hitting having career year. He's twenty seven home runs on the year. It would be devastating one of our best that are, where are you? If you wanna save this.

Just I know idea and I haven't watched the press conference yet, but apparently Boone broke it by the way. She'll I'll tell you what happened. So in hoax, tweet words perfectly because he go by the one because so Boone is talking about the game so much on these game in how he didn't wanna use levers and whatever. And someone forgot who it was. I don't actually, there's no economic the voice, but someone asked him, why were you late to the press conference where you addressing the team? Because a letdown loss of Baltimore couldn't do it, but like, hey, let's get going for the rest of the the finish out the year. No, wasn't that. He said he was talking to people that Didi. And then the guy who has the question goes is DO k. and you goes while he actually torque Arledge in his wrist last night, and that's what he was out today. And it's a chance he might not be back for the rest of the year. Just drops that Trump's through Ricat agile. Being in the room. I probably just looking at each other like is this a practical joke sprays? -i and someone did say, like, I mean, he might have just found that that information like two minutes before the press conference. So most might not have been in check, but like you gotta leave art with that or something. You can't just have it. Can't drop it like that. Can't be he. He announced his. It wasn't big news and it's major news starting shortstop. We Twitter, major news. I mean, the judge injury was big too, but when you consider the timing of this, you could say that this is even bigger because Didi is d most clutch player on this team. You shouted in the last wildcard game, the huge run against the twins at the bottom of the first inning. He killed Cleveland, they I'm Mike confidence in the one game, playoff right now is pretty low. If without Devi it is astronomically. Look, I will say they can't survive at least the wildcard game without him, but they won't do anything to play where we are on the opposite side here where you're sort of moving inky past card and not knowing you're you're more confident in the wildcard game than you are in the AOL DS. 'cause I think it will be at home and I don't see them losing at home at that crap. I will. First of all, we don't know if it will because Yankees can't beat the Orioles. I think we have to go the oils. The go. Seven, oh, this week and we. And if we go four and three, they'll get anything like we go foreign three in these next seven, which is, I don't think that's a lot ask for split with Tampa and win two, three in Boston or three or four.
