"Implied. I was transparent about my availability. There you go. So I can't wait to see what's next. I mean, you've already hit him with those two. What's left? We got a few more weeks here. Oh, there's plenty left. Oh, we're a month outside of Maine. I want to ask you this before I let you know. We got to keep it personal. Yes, absolutely. I'm looking forward to it. I mean, will there be more, I'm sure there'll be more references to dusty and we'll draw more stuff out with the dusty connection there? If it fits, if there's another tale to tell that invokes the name of the American Dream, dusty Rhodes, I'm an inhibited, pretty obviously. And in my approach of how do we strike a nerve with the audience? How do we get people emotionally invested in this? If we've played the dusty card and there's no way to top that, we won't touch it. If you've played the card about his wife and that's as far as we go with it, then we won't touch it. You know, if there are other things to bring up and if not, we will create a narrative that to bring things up so that it remains this level personal because it's that personal rivalry is that it's that it's that in depth into your soul type of story that is going to sell the main event of WrestleMania. You know, my niece who I mentioned earlier. She broke a really good point to me that I hadn't thought of. And here we have Cody, getting ready for WrestleMania to face Roman. And dusty Rhodes, and I know you don't like this expression, so forgive me, but one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Well, not one of the great that doesn't sum it up. One of the legends icons of the business, dusty Rhodes. A mountain rush personality. Absolutely. Never got his chance for a title shot in W I know he was the intercontinental title, but he had the run obviously before it was WCW, NWA, but he never in the WWE never really had the run for the heavyweight title like Cody's going to have. And it's an interesting little thing there considering dusty status in the business. Well, in 1977, dusty was on television in New York. On a Spanish speaking ton Tel Aviv, which was on channel 47 in New York. Tuesday nights and 1130. They would air championship wrestling from Florida. And dusty became a star in New York in New York. New York. New York. You know, you can take the boy out of The Bronx, but you can't take The Bronx head of the boy. It became a star in New York. That and also the after magazines. Right, right. Magazines played a really big part. Dusty Rhodes was always on the cover of the after magazines. And so superstar Billy Graham defeated Bruno sammartino in 1977 in Baltimore to become the WWW champion. And a natural matchup for superstar Billy Graham was dusty Rhodes, and they had done some matches in Florida.

"He was still resting his Sterling golden southeastern heavyweight champion. Wow. In Ron fuller's version of southeastern champion in Alabama. That's amazing. Do the guys know that you have these belts? You know, every now and then somebody will reach out about it. There was a guy who actually held the southeastern tag title. He calls me up a few years ago. Nicest guy in the world. I kind of can't remember his name. And it was the only title he ever held.

But as a fan as a fan Dan, it seems to me that you kind of enjoy giving some of these belts to the guys because when it means something to them. It means the world to them. Yeah. I mean, I love that belt, but Cody Rhodes grew up looking at that bell. Dusty Rhodes is kid for Christ's sake, you know? I mean, it means a lot more to him than it's ever going to mean to me, right? I wouldn't have gave it rich ward.

"Well, it's a prestigious title and I've held up over a year and it's being on my platform. It's always important to remember where you came from. Exactly. And as long as I am champion, I can bring it, then I wouldn't have it anymore. But when you're the heavyweight champion of the world in boxing or you're super champion where you're ring, I represent that title as long as I have it. So I'll always wear it.

You know, I don't have to wear it. No, I don't. But I choose to, for the guys who came before me for dusty Rhodes for R Anderson, Tully Blanchard, the key to call out guys who were that title that I watched as a child that inspired me.

Initially it depends on the treatment given such as casting his rehabilitation and his potential for healing. Such an injury. Aren't you mentioned about the care that was taken before You were told about the care. What care Did that help. I thought that Very excellently followed the recommendations when one is injured if you can splint and hold at injury still and if you can apply ice to the injury and not make the mistake of applying heat initially then you can really decreased the amount of swelling niche again initially and of course the less swelling. You have to start with the less. You have to get rid of all right. The cast that is on his Ankle right now that is basically to keep him his ankle immobile so you'll have time to.

Absent From Stimulus Packages: Overhauling Energy, Climate Programs
"Some countries are literally printing money to rescue their economies from the ravages of covid nineteen. The UN and some others argue that some of that money should be spent to fight climate change. The European Union has a plan to do that. The US so far does not despite the fact that this country has a tradition of overhauling our energy sector to promote economic recovery. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady. Consider President Franklin. Roosevelt's new deal a century ago, electricity may not come to mind, but a big element was building massive hydroelectric dams on the Columbia River then the government paid woody Guthrie to write songs about. Colonial. Power returning our. Law. The legacy of those dams is mixed. They forever changed the environment, but they also brought electricity to rural America during the Nineteen Twenties and Nineteen Thirties about ninety percent of the US. Farms had no electricity. Ted Case is executive director of the Oregon. Rural Electric Cooperative Association his Co. up. Members exist because the new deal brought utility, Poles and power lines down many miles of dusty Rhodes and connected homes to the grid that day was the most incredible day for a lot of families when they finally got to throw. Throw that kerosene lantern out the window which many people did decades later? President Obama was sworn into office amid an economic downturn. His stimulus plan included ninety billion dollars that helped reshape the US energy landscape. It's an investment that will double the amount of renewable energy produced over the next three years solar and wind grew quickly, and now the cheapest source of electricity in some places, but hundreds of thousands of renewable energy jobs have been lost. Scientists say carbon emissions must be reduced dramatically to avoid the worst effects of. Of Climate Change, that requires significant changes at a time. The country already is spending a lot of money about three trillion dollars on relief packages so far Julian brave noise cat is with the group data for progress. It is irresponsible from like a very basic good government perspective to not have any of that money. Go to Queen Energy and fighting climate change noise cat says money should be spent creating jobs to build retrofit houses install rooftop, solar and deploy electric vehicles. Heather reams also is concerned about climate change, but. But her politics are more conservative and market focused. If we're talking about if you'RE GONNA put taxpayer money someplace, put it where you're going to get a good return, and that is in clean energy. Reams heads citizens for responsible energy solutions. She says there are bills. In Congress. That could become stimulus programs even with an administration that shows little interest in climate change they do recognize the economic value that clean energy brings the jobs that brings particularly to a lot of red states, so I think the business certainty. Trump's if you will any kind of political challenges, another idea has the support of some conservatives and big oil companies taxing carbon dioxide emissions I. Think it's fair to say that carbon taxes are economists favorite way of addressing climate change Yona. Marinescu is an economist at the University of Pennsylvania, but she says this would be a bad time to levy new taxes. She suggest the government invest lots of money in clean energy upfront, and then Levy carbon tax to pay for it when the economy recovers, it's one idea among many the point. Is that climate? Climate Change arguably is the biggest problem humans face now and fixing. It requires sweeping solutions at a time. The US's spending lots of money. It's a sad time, but also an opportunity to do investments that perhaps we didn't have the Mo-jo to get our act together and do before. Sometimes it takes a good crisis to finally move in a whole new direction just like the new deal. Here's what's different.
