MLB Spring training: Which Players Have A Shot At Making the Giants' Team?
"One guy that stands out to me and we'll get to Luciano. We've talked so much about him and how exciting and tantalizing he is. But we're talking bullpen, arms and guys who have a legitimate shot to make this team and one of the parting gifts from Bobby Evans. It seems like one of these guys. Camilo dove all he's been in the system time now did we saw him against the Dodgers the other night? He is exciting, and I think is you put out carry the best hair in the Giants bullpen right now. Oh, yeah, he he does have the best care because last year they had a guy Rodolfo Martinez, who was a Johnny Cueto look like just with better dreadlocks than Johnny Cueto. If you can imagine that this year, they've got Camilo Jovel who does not have better dreadlocks. But he has died his dreadlocks, so they're like orangish Red, And I'm hoping that by the regular season he'll have in his Giants Orange, because could you imagine that coming out of the bullpen? Got weapon 97 98 with a cutter and the breaking off a nasty slider. And then all of a sudden he's got the closer like hair, Camilo Devil and you make a great point. He is a parting gift from Bobby Evans. And this is something that we should talk about. I should write about eventually is all the parting gifts from Bobby Evans because you're starting to see the fruit of the Giants International. Sign me focus coming through the system. Marco Luciano, a Bobby Evans guy, Alexander Canario, Bobby Evans Guy. Curving Castro, a Bobby Evans guy. And so the Giants are starting to see this focus that we saw in the like post 2014 2015 World Series era where they went down to the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and other Latin American countries and sign some dudes and you're seeing that those dudes who they got when they were 16 17 years old are coming through this farm system and are going to be ready to contribute and so The village of all immediately popped out the other night against the Dodgers Cubs, But there's several other players, several other young players. Several other young pitchers who have really stood out so far. Well in another one is from the left side. Jake long this kid is from Sacramento. I think you would the Sac state or he's like up from the Northern California area. So he said. It was so funny. The quote I saw from him the other day was Buster Posey called him over to throw a bullpen and he called him by his name, and he was all stoked that Buster newest name because he's of that age group beauties like you and I. If Buster called us over, he'd be like, dude, that's Buster Posey calling my name so Him from the left side. You know, I hate to do the com thing, but I'm getting I'm getting Billy Wagner Vibes. Dude, What do you think? Billy Wagner vibes? That's that's fascinating. And so the reason I say that is because the jobs are actually building this guy up is a starter there. They're thinking of him a 97 from the left side, a guy with a hammer curveball and a good change up there looking at him as someone who could actually be in the rotation. And so when can't first started? Gabe Kapler traffic trump Buster Posey. They all said. Hey, pay some attention to this Sam Long guy. He's got something to him. And we're thinking, okay, This is just, you know, a guy who threw two good bullpens. You never know that happens every spring. He's probably a double A or maybe a triple a arm who could help them out of the bullpen Eventually. Then all of a sudden, he appears in the Cactus League opener against the Angels, and he has got major league stuff. No question in my mind after seeing him. Three pitches in I turn to Mark Sanchez in the press box. I go. I have seen enough. This guy can help the Giants right now, and I think that in keeping him as a starter and sending him down to triple A or double a to open up the season, you're potentially talking about someone copes who could somehow morphed his way into the Giants top pitching prospect and maybe beat Sean Jelly or Tristen back or some things other guys. The chance to excited about to the major league level. And so it's really fasting to see Sam Long come out of the bullpen because you're juxtaposing that with guys like Camilo, Javelin Caribbean Castro, who is another guy, Bobby Evan, signed who just has that hammer curve coming out of the bullpen 97. Very little mite early experience. But there are the pieces in place and you can correct me if I'm wrong. If you've seen anything differently, the first three or four days of spring training their pieces in place for the Giants to have one of the most exciting bullpens and Major league baseball and potentially one of the best is far as electricity goes like with stuff
While Many Asylum-Seekers Start Entering The U.S. Again, Others Are Left Behind
"Long, perilous wait for hundreds of asylum seekers stuck in Mexican towns on the US border may soon be over. The Biden administration has begun allowing some of them into the U. S to make their cases for asylum. Reversing policies put in place by former President Trump. But now, as NPR's John Burnett reports, even more migrants are surging to the border. Sandra Zuniga and her son Elder, are some of the lucky ones. They were among the migrants stuck in a camp in Matamoras, Mexico, amid the rats, snakes, mosquitoes and mud. On Sunday, Zuniga and her son walked across the International Bridge received a notice to appear in US Immigration court and settled into a cozy condo in Brownsville, Texas. It's rented by a volunteer who befriended her. You said the thought Yesterday you had the glory be to God Day I arrived. I spent the whole day crying to end up in such a beautiful place with my own bedroom and bathroom way past a great test on the camp. Some people even doubted the existence of God. We overcame. Zuniga says she fled Honduras with her son to get away from an abusive husband and violent extortionists in her neighborhood. They stayed in the camp for a year, Trump had suspended most asylum applications because of the pandemic. Biden has restarted the process, and Zuniga is among the early beneficiaries of the policy change. She taught kindergarten it a free school inside the camp. She recalled, when her students realized that their ordeal was finally over, won't mean Yo causes billing me you're on. There was a little boy who told me goodbye crying. He always asked me teacher. When can we leave here? He gave me a big hug and said through his tears. Last teacher we are crossing over. There's some 25,000 migrants scattered up and down the border between Matamoros in Tijuana. Many have been waiting well over a year to press their asylum cases in the U. S. Happy experiences like Sandra's have created high expectations and anxiety among the others left behind. US. Immigration agents are admitting some asylum seekers who've been stuck in border towns under a Trump era program known as remain in Mexico, but they're doing so slowly.

Were they real people. Kind of the story of you're a ridley scott chose direct a screenplay drafted from ninety seven availa from the famous author joseph conrad but away the noble a was published as dual in britain. But it was kind of the point. Honorary night it stays and you can still find the first edition of in used. Bookstores and condo story was supposedly inspired by this real duels olga. He clearly to liberties facts and the story was about the duel between two officers of napoleonic army. The historical individuals of peer won't The town and francois leotard lavazza. Who became ill baer and finkel in the movie and both of them are very collar for the interesting individuals. Do point was born in chaban as in shock and in western france in seventeen sixty five like many of his generation. He first saw action I military action. During the french revolutionary. Wars in fact he fought that battle. Volney really important. Battled all of the then. He served in the rhineland and by seventeen ninety seven. He's already a general so he would have been all league thirty two years old and a general widely respected for his Martial abilities He supported napoleon in seventeen ninety nine when that general sees power to our and then he couponing pollyanna campaigns. All is distinguishing himself. I mean he. This guy was quite successful in quite capable. Man fought at morongo for that Allback where he he did. Do really remarkable defense with barely five thousand man. He was able to stop and australia. That was five times larger and then he earned accolades for he's exported. Ooh macron's rheinland in the sauna zone and with such a stellar record. He had much to expect from the future of maybe even marshal's baton right as new polian savings says every soldier right in.

Antone brings heat in push for Cincinnati Reds' rotation
"Reds played tonight and three hours against the kansas city. Royals perhaps not with these same amount of excitement as the night before her. Green and nikola delo pitched tj anton in relief last night against the dodgers and again that ended with a four four tie. I will admit to you. I get the purpose behind the rule that a team on defense can roll the inning over and basically ended prematurely as a fan. That's not much fun. Tony larussa has said as much. Tony larussa and i are on the same page about anything. That's saying something but above and beyond the outcome of the game which obviously doesn't matter. Tj antone pitch last night and he was phenomenal two innings. His fastball was ninety. Seven ninety eight ninety nine killer slider filthy curve five strikeouts two innings gave up. Just a hit. This is a guy who was a bit of a revelation. Last year made his major league debut with the reds early in the season started. Four games came in and relief and nine others and did a really really nice job. Here's david bell on what he liked from. Tj last night looks very lockton. Yeah maybe could've been the best basketball. I've seen include. Let's santa law so good last year. But his fastball of really good is everyone which means it just locked in a totally kind of grown accustomed to tj being very focused and determined so even those beverly in the spring doesn't surprise me at perching david bell last night talking about t j anto. I don't wanna make too much out of one. Spring training outing the didn't count. There is a lot of foolishness and doing that. But he is a part of a mix of guys who will ultimately answer one of the critical questions about the reds this spring. Which is who's gonna make up the back into the rotation right and even if he doesn't end up as a starter he could be a valuable member of a bullpen. that said goodbye to two quality. Relievers this offseason and rice laziest and archie bradley. But what role will tj antone bien after a good two thousand twenty. Here he is and what role he would like to be. Yeah i wanna start but wherever those. Tv's all right. Good short concise. It's the right answer. You don't get the sense just listening to that that he's going to be upset if he's not a starting pitcher but that is what he's been for most of his professional career one hundred and eleven appearances in the minor leagues one hundred and nine as a starter with different levels of success. I don't think there was anything about just looking. At his minor league statistical profile that would have suggested that he would emerge last. Year is valuable arm but he was. Era to eighty again pitched started four games when needed member wade. Miley had to miss some time. Sonny gray mr starr disc- he came out of the bullpen. Nine times and did a nice job. He'd really did a nice job last year. So now the question is does he factor into the mix a little bit more in the race to be the last starter.
White House narrows income limits for stimulus checks
"Of a threat from far right groups, including followers of the Cuban on conspiracy. Those extremists claim Donald Trump will retake the presidency today. This is not stopping the Senate from carrying on the House adjourned, but not before Democrats passed two major bills last night. One on voting rights, the other on police reform for more. We're joined by NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. And so Democrats have railed against bills passed in state houses across the country that would make it harder to vote curbing things like mail in voting and early voting that work expanded last year during the pandemic. So what would this federal voting rights bill do about that? Well, this legislation has been a top priority for the party. It's not new. It was introduced in passed in the house in the last Congress. So this vote this week was a bit of a do over. They've called it the most sweeping government reform bill since the post Watergate era. And what wouldn't do it would do things like allow for automatic voter registration, it would make Election day of federal holiday. It would restore voting rights to people with past felony convictions. It would also expand early voting that we saw you so much in the 2020 elections. It would also do things like create more independent redistricting commissions to sort of end party controlled drawing of congressional district. On campaign finance. It would require more disclosure of big donors. It would require transparency about those ads you see in your social media feeds, and it would create a new public financing system for congressional candidates. Would also do things like expand conflict of interest laws that would ban members of Congress from serving on corporate boards and require presidents by law to disclose their taxes. Okay, sweeping to say the least. Thea other bill passed last night is the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Police reform has been a democratic priority for a long time. What's in this one? This is another bill that passed in the previous congress. So they're doing it again. This'll legislation would do things that would ban choke holds, it would change so called qualified immunity protection so it would make it easier to pursue claims of misconduct against police officers. It would put restrictions on no knock warrants, and it would require new data collection on a police encounters. It would also direct more money to community based policing programs. This one is not. I mean, it's not as controversial as the voting reforms Bill, which has very strong Republican opposition. No Republicans supported it. There is a bit more support among Republicans for police reform, especially in the Senate. There's competing measure by Tim Scott, who's a Republican of South Carolina. So there's maybe a chance there could be more bipartisan effort to move that bill forward, But the other measure is purely a symbolic one of the stage. It's still a tall order in the House Democrats know based on previous failures that these bills don't have much hope of getting to 60 votes in the Senate, which, of course, is the magic number to break a filibuster, they would need 10 Republicans to vote with Democrats. So why are they so determined to pass them if the prospects looked in Part of this is just elections are making good on their promises. These issues are very important to the Democratic base, and I think it's about keeping that promise. But you're right. I mean, I think that's going to be one of the cork tensions, if not the court tension of this Congress. I think Democrats really sensitive this fact that they control Washington. Now they have Congress and the White House and they want to be able to run in 20 to 2022 on accomplishments. But they have these really narrow majorities in the House and Senate, which really limits what they're going to be able to do. You know, it's not just the filibuster to the parties are really divided right now. There's not much that they agree on. The bigger picture, though, is Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer just doesn't have the votes to change the filibuster, and it's not clear that he ever will in this Congress. One of the biggest opponents, a centrist Democrat, Joe Manchin, of West Virginia. He was asked last week if he could ever see changing his mind. And he literally yelled never at the reporters who asked him the question, Okay, digging in on the filibuster, So just in the moment we have left we have the Senate is still in session. They're debating that Cove in 19 relief package. What's the latest? You know they're making some tweaks to the bill. They've done things like reduced the income limits for people to get those $1400 stimulus checks. There was concerns among Senate Senate Democrats that too much money was going to people who didn't need it. Otherwise, The bill seems to be on a glide path. They don't expect to get any Republican support. But Democrats seem pretty unified behind it. If it passes this week, they gotta send it back over to the house to pass it back over there, but Right now. They're on track to meet a march 14th deadline that they've set, which is when current extended unemployment benefits run out, and they don't want to see those benefits lapsed. So there's a real pressure campaign to get it done by then. OK, that's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis with the latest thanks to your right welcome. Well, every
Money Myths That Can Cost You
"In today's episode. I'm going to tell you about some miss around money. I want you to be aware of also extended warranties. Are they ever worth it. Well we gotta talk because there's something over the years that has puzzled me where i've had. It's got to be in the hundreds of times. I've had people say to me that they lead balances open on their credit cards because they wanna raise their credit score and it shows that there's a a lack of some level of understanding about how credit reporting works and credit scores so much so that survey that lendingtree did in january found that just a whisker under half of people think that. That's true that you don't want to even if you can afford to pay a balance on a credit card a month two zero. You don't wanna do it. Because well i'm going to buy a house or i'm going to do this or that or the other and i got to raise my credit score and i don't know where this urban legend started but the reality is there is zero benefit to leaving a balance open on a credit card because you're paying to average credit card somewhere around eighteen percent interest and when you have an open balance the charges he may going forward. The interest is accruing right away daily interest when you pay the balance and full on a card you have a grace period and then you pay that balance that you developed during that billing cycle in full you got an interest free loan from the credit card company now i liked that so whatever wherever however that legend started that is good for you to run a balance. Forget it you know something else. A third of people believe that using credit cards is bad for you that you always wanna use debit card. So i don't know where that one started. The reality is if you've listened to me for any period of time. You know what. I call a debit card. A piece of trash. Fake visa are fake mastercard the credit card it developed as a product during a time that the congress was not corrupt bought and paid for by who they got money from and so congress wrote into law consumer protections for credit cards. There was no thought no idea of debit card. When those rules were developed in the nineteen sixties. You fast forward. The debit card is a product. Really the tens fifty years later so the debit card in an era that the congress is controlled by corporate contributions. the debit card has no consumer protections at all. That's why you see all those endless ads from visa trying to con you into using the debit card from the banks pushing you to use the debit card because it is such a powerful win for them when you use that debit card. Because let's say you buy something online. Use that debit card and the merchant. Never since you the merchandise what happens to your money. it's gone. What happens if the merchant lies to you about the goods and send you something very different than what they represented with a debit card. You're done your money's gone with a credit card under the federal law. I'm telling you about. It was designed in the nineteen sixties. You have these protections in no there. Were not dinosaurs roaming the earth and the nineteen sixties like my kids thing but you have protections to dispute a purchase with a credit card. No such right exists under the law ned. The banks could have gone to congress when they came up with the idea. Debit cards and not fought having these protections but consumers never even got a fair hearing on having any protections with debit cards. But wait it gets worse. So what happens if a crook duplicates your credit card number or steals your credit card. And they're using it. They're using your car. They're using your number your possession your car. You don't even know how they got your number but they're using it. What's your risk. What's your liability with a credit card. Generally zero maximum fifty dollars in the worst circumstances but again no money is left to your hands. You've just dispute those charges with a debit card. What happens well the criminal. Mtc checking account. You have overdraft. They emptied that to. You can have checks bouncing all over the place and the bank is even allowed to collect. All those bounced check charges. And you were a victim of a crime but wait. It gets worse under the rules. Wait there's more under the rules. The bank is the judge jury and executioner on the determination. If you committed the fraud or was done by a fraudster. They are given two weeks to decide and after two weeks. I can say tough. We think you did it. And you're out the money you're out the money or they can issue a temporary credit and then continue whatever their fake investigation is or after two weeks can give you your money back

The nudist plays resolution. Mir's the current switch and switch life but is an upgrade from the switches. Six point two inch and lights five point five inch size if the consuls housing remains unchanged the new switches likely sport a thinner basil parris lilly. How do you unpack this. would you be excited for. Would you buy. Do you believe it. So i have three switches in my house already. My kids you're buying this no matter. What no yeah. I'm getting it absolutely. This is the one that i've been waiting for. I think the biggest thing that i took out of this. It's not only as an led screen but the fact that you're because of the power consumption is going to be less. You're going to get more battery life. That's obviously been a big thing that we've wanted with the switch in portable mode on thing which they don't talk about in this that i'm hopeful to see what whenever we we get the unveil. This is better joy cons potentially You know probably thinner. Basil's noted mentioned mentioned it in there as well. The fourcade thing is interesting. It's clearly the logical step to go when it's going to be in tv mode so speak. Yeah i guess.

Seven twenty pm scaling. All the way up to four k is that gonna put just make an extra workload for developers. Like i said to me if it stated tonight ep but it had better battery life better a bigger screen. That's enough i. I would be happy with that to me. The switch ninety percent of the time. I'm playing it in portable mode anyway. So i'm not overly concerned with there being four k in dock mode and playing that way so i mean i think a lot of this is true but it'll be interesting to see what what the truth looks like.

Spotify Wants To Sell You CD-Quality Music
"I'm happy to be in your earbuds because today we have a story about sound right now. You're listening to a podcast which means the audio you're hearing has been digitally compressed. The highest highs and the lowest lows of the range of sound. You're hearing have brought closer together. Compression generally make sound a little easier on the ears. Well one company. That deals heavily in sound says compressed audio is so out spotify announced last week that it would be adding an additional service to its music subscriptions lossless audio as in sound in its purest form not compressed which means music has more depth and clarity. If you're struggling to imagine what that sounds like just think back to a bygone era remember cds because they're not usually compressed cds deliver lossless audio naturally and spotify. Says it wants to return to that without you. Know making cds thing again spotify. Hi fi will be available to subscribers in select markets later this year. It'll cost more than the nine ninety nine per month users currently pay although spotify hasn't said how much more they say hi fi will let the most discerning listeners. Experienced the music the way artists intended it. The company is just the latest hop on the lossless audio train or i should say track in two thousand. Nineteen amazon rolled out amazon music. Hd for fifteen bucks a month or a little less for prime members and streaming service title offers lossless audio for twenty dollars a month reports the verge but neither rival comes close to spotify's user numbers spotify counts around one hundred fifty five million paid subscribers worldwide while amazon music. Expect to hit forty million this year and it's estimated that title only has around five million subscribers spotify says its users have been asking for higher quality audio so now that it has it it may spell trouble for spotify's smaller competitors but one big name is notably absent from the list of lossless audio providers. And that would be apple music apple. Subscriber numbers are inching up. They hit a little over seventy million subscribers last year and with roughly the same number of songs available as spotify. It would figure that spotify would wanna keep apple at arm's length hence spotify move towards something. Apple does not have and is reportedly not planning to have a paid tier for lossless music apple and spotify have been dealing for a few years in another space. Which you may be familiar with if you're listening to this right now. yes podcasts. While the term more than a decade ago a mix of its ipod and the word broadcast spotify is looking to be the latest dominant force in podcasting unclear at times exactly which companies doing more in the field. Some reports put apple on top in terms of podcast downloads and revenue others put spotify on top either way each companies looking for ways to edge away from the other when it comes to podcasting and for apple that means toying with the idea of a paid subscription service for its podcast library which has always been offered for free bloomberg reported the plans in january and says apple is also aiming to ramp up its creation of original podcasts spotify. Meanwhile plucked one of the country's top. Podcasts the joe rogan experience and made it a spotify exclusive at the beginning of this year. They also recently announced plans to roll out the spotify audience network which it calls a first of its kind audio.

The company says the marketplace will allow creators to earn more for their work while delivering a greater impact for advertisers unquote. Podcast wars aside a lossless music tier four spotify seems to be the latest attempt to get the edge on apple for apple though lossless. Music doesn't seem to be on the horizon at least publicly. In fact apple enthusiasts media outlet apple insider said last week that during blind tests twenty fifteen listeners couldn't seem to discern lossless audio from compressed audio being played on an iphone that might mean lossless music might only be a boon for the most discerning listener.

Is 'Cancelling' Dr. Seuss One Step Too Far?
"Author, So creative As a kid. He was my favorite. As an adult. He's still one of my favorites. Six of these books. Well stop being published. And I thought Oh, my gosh, you please don't tell me this is like cat in the hat. You know, green eggs and ham. Hop on pop One fish, two fish. Any of these. The grants whatever. Um, into think I saw it on Mulberry Street. And if I ran the zoo or two of the books So we start, they'll stop publishing them because of quote. Racist and insensitive imagery. The business of preserves protects the author's legacy. Says these books portrayed people in ways Um Mm hmm. These books portrayed people in ways that are hurtful and wrong, Dr Seuss Enterprises told The Associated Press in a statement. The coincided with the late author and illustrators birthday Um is the only part of the of is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr Seuss Enterprises catalog represents and supports all communities and families. Such a Innocents thing, Dr Seuss. So innocent Could barely think of anything that's more innocents and enjoyable. As a kid is a youth. Go to the library, man. I get these books. Now I'll be I'll tell you this. The books that are on this particular list. I have never read. I didn't read. It was a kid. I haven't read him ever. Ah! Mick Elegance pool. On beyond zebra.

School districts across the country have also moved away from Dr Seuss. Um Hmm. They say they're not have banned the books entirely. Well. That would be read utterly ridiculous. Recent shows Me research in recent years is revealed strong racial undertones of many books written by an illustrated by Dr Seuss hogwash, but that's what the school district said in a statement. I didn't know the good doctor. I don't believe there was a racist bone in his body or a sexist bone in his body. Everything he wrote seem very innocents. And we have to remember this was in different time. A different era. 2017, a school librarian, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, criticized the gift of 10 Dr Seuss books. Why? Well, I'll tell you why? Because they came from the first lady Melania Trump. Saying many of his works were steeped and racist propaganda characters and harmful stereotypes. O Lord.
Drug Approval In The New Normal
"The covid nineteen pandemic has been going on long enough for scientists and lawmakers to begin to reflect on the lessons we have learned robust response to the pandemic from the scientific community has been astonishing and the flexibility shown by regulatory organizations like the fda has also been impressive if we're entering a new era of more dynamic regulatory response to emergencies. How can we ensure the balance of science and law couple that with the growing fields of personalized medicine and rare disease. Emergency use authorization and it becomes even more complicated here to discuss. These issues. is charles river director. Mike template from our scientific advisory services division. Welcome mike thank you so i understand that. The fda processes like any bureaucratic organization contend tend to build up over time. Can you talk about what this means from a scientific perspective sure and he was one of those cases that there are multiple factors. Part of it is because these documents are is so important to the drug development world. They try to be in. You'll all encompassing in certain ways means they can get fairly large are also a case of. You're all a product of our experience. Of course we also try to learn from our experiences most get added in over time and that combination as well as other factors can make them rather large one to encompass a little bit of the what gifts and also to be able to address multiple situations and in those cases they just. They can get large soda. Speak or encompassing and get a little confusing about exactly what they're trying to address and how more important how you apply those to your specific situation using the general for specific questions so i know i mean each drug obviously would have its own inherent dangers or things that you really need to look out for but are there any in this little bit off topic but are there any types of drugs where there's some safety testing that you just don't need to do for whatever reason either. The drug has no way of interacting in that sort of safety way or a variant used a million times before so they know it safe in certain ways and are those accommodated in the regulations. They are accommodated in the regulations. And it is you know we encourage people to read them quite often or we will reference them. It was part of the scientific advisory services group and we have some initial calls with people who have a certain project. They're trying to move forward. We will reference those guidances. We also at least try and remember to say read them and then take a close look at what applies in. Maybe we're things don't apply but it still the responsibility of all of us in the drug development community to undergo and take a rigorous scientific process. What makes sense. Where are the concerns. We all have limited time and limited resources. In only situations and you'll i is sit down and develop the plan and then apply the guidance to the plan as opposed to taking the guidance and then trying to fit your drug or your program into every part of the guidance pull out the parts that are important. Make sure you give them the emphasis. They deserve places where it doesn't make sense scientifically you need to rationalize that if you can't come up with a good reason. It's probably not not realistic that you don't look there but if you can't come up with a good solid rationale it's just as valid to say. Yeah we did not go in depth in here because it's a low probability. We have enough information to confirm that. Let's put our resources where there's more important
It's Not Just Texas: The Entire Energy Grid Needs An Upgrade For Extreme Weather
"The electricity grid is more than wires. It's also power plants big transmission towers and local utilities. Everything that gets electricity to you. Much of that infrastructure was designed for a different era says energy consultant alison silverstein. We plan this grid for us inherit weather and we are now facing mad max. These pop culture references are silverstein colorful way of saying that what worked in the nineteen fifties sixties and seventies needs to be updated for a future that includes climate change. Everybody has always designed these systems looking in the rear view mirror that made sense grid. Managers identified the worst case scenario from the past and planned for that but climate change is delivering whether that hasn't been experienced before the number of weather disasters with losses over a billion dollars is increasing according to the federal government and the group climate central says that since two thousand there's a sixty seven percent increase in major power outages from weather and climate related events. Each region has its own vulnerabilities. Take the pacific northwest. And it's massive hydropower dams for example. Not only do we need to be worried about the cold weather events like he signed texas and the the hot weather events like in california ben kiala is at the northwest power and conservation council. They recently changed their planning models to look ahead and better prepare for how climate change alters win water flows through the dams. He says warming temperatures make it likely that mountain snow pack will melt earlier in the year. And you have a lot more water running into those reservoirs in the winter when it used to be more of a spring phenomenon and it might be that by summer. You're pretty much. All the snow. Pack melted everything off. And you don't have that much precipitation and you just have way less energy in the summer grid. Experts generally agree. The country needs to build more transmission lines to get electricity from where it's produced to where it's needed. That would make it possible to add more cleaner. Sources of power like wind turbine solar projects in batteries to store energy. Larry gas diker heads wires. A trade group advocating for more high voltage transmission lines. He points out that president biden set a goal of net zero carbon emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five. That may sound like a long time from now but in the world of building transmission It's really not that far off when you think you need a good ten here. Lead time in order to get there and gas tiger says all that new transmission infrastructure big towers. Thick lines comes with a steep price tag. Our study said up to ninety billion dollars of investment by twenty thirty maybe as much as six hundred billion an investment by two thousand fifty gas tiger suspects the texas blackout. While encouraged policymakers to move on this issue. Soon as expensive as this sounds the texas experience shows. There's also a cost of not preparing the grid for more extreme weather in dollars and lives jeffrey. Npr

"Beaumont can't wait. We actually get there because she is one of the most interesting and awful and smart even those. You messed up that girl's name if you believe that was on purpose or not. We'll see and smart and talented young women that we've had in sports and along. I'm looking forward to it when it actually starts. And that's what i'm curious about is who gets to decide when it actually starts. Is it like monty. Said the people that are aware of this or is it the general public in the way that we talk about it. Because i wonder if this is going to be a situation where women's tennis runs into what golf is dealing with with tiger woods. Which is as long as the legend of the previous era is still chasing something that we talk ourselves into being believable. Are we gonna keep running with that as the dominant headline every time we get to a tournament because going into this was about serena's pursuit of this all time record and i have a feeling if she manages to get to the semi's of some tournament coming up it's going to be similar in ways that tiger woods always has recalled where we've got speed in mcelroy and all these great young golfers that we refuse to seed this ground to because we've still got that tiger dopamine hit the pops up every once in a while and reminds us of the thing that we've had and so that's the biggest thing i've heard certain not. Will she accomplishment wise merit that but will the discourse around the sport allow for two stars of this magnitude. Even if one's not doing the things we're used to seeing in serena williams was that is such a great point because there was a time we'll be covered tennis that we had room to talk about multiple people. We had time to talk about multiple people from multiple countries. Like when you think about twenty twenty five years ago how many tennis players were household names. It's not really the case anymore and really for the last three or four years. All i've found in the mainstream public discourse about women's tennis it is entirely about whether serena williams is going to win that major championship to get the time with margaret court. Now part of that. Of course because serena williams has been so good answering williams is american and she's good enough to where she's still competing for these things like it's not talking about that by jack nicklaus in nineteen eighty seven or anything. She's still in the thick but she's not the best player in the world right now to me not the most exciting player in the world but she is the story that we have been riding for so law and we had no idea how to get on board up next on. Hq you saw philly yourself a bit. A you think you grown and you say something to a grownup that acts like you are grow. And then they come that you know how gross handle those things and. It's quite the humbling. Experience.

"Harden garden. Oh no nineties you look at this right fast. Forward the litter come home and come home and here is the reason and i don't think that the clippers got holes by the rest as much as the refs got fooled by james harden but james horn is run the ultimate okie doke. We all think of them as a flopper on offense like he's not the guy that you see flop on defense and you feel like you've got to recalibrate. Would you seem to make sure it happened. That was such an obvious flop and he sold it because we think about him flopping all the other end i mean i feel like it wasn't obvious lot from our perspective but the guy who called it. You could see him. The ref in that picture. And i can imagine how fooled situation. I don't care so much about that. Play because it's the nba is the regular season. It happens all the time. But i do care about what we care about an nba is what's going to happen in the playoffs with this net team like we have never seen a team that is this talented offensively and also there's an ept on defense go deep into the playoffs and win a championship and for the first. I'm starting to question things that i've always known to be true. Because they never if they don't let you they never have to take a badge dot there just aren't enough defenders on the war to ensure that they have to take a bad shot at any point so they never take a bad side in. Mvp caliber shooters had the ball in their hands with one. Maybe zero people on them towards the end of the game is hard to imagine a situation where someone can outscore them. That's all i really care about in. Apparently james harden is like better than kevin durant right now. at least that's what the number said. I feel like a lot of animals has to do. With the fact that we have been missing kevin durant for a lot of this wretched. Hardened has been going off here at some point. The seven foot unicorn comes back and we all kinda come to our senses on that. But i'd say dominate. You bring up the defense portion of what we saw. When they played the lakers the other night. I'll be a lesser than full strength lakers. When they went to the small ball lineup was a bit more competent on the defensive. End and defensive especially in basketball seems to be a lot more about time under task together communication effort. All things that this group cannot give in some instances right now because of the lack of practice time they've had together and maybe won't because it's the regular season they know they can go down in that other end and get a bunch of great one on one match to constantly offense numbers like this. I also find myself impressed with flopping ability to be able to have the wherewithal to do that in those situations to me takes a level still that. We probably don't acknowledge enough. Well the other thing about james harden and people don't realize that allows him to get away with this. That dude is a tank. He's like six foot five to twenty five to thirty now might be literally the strongest dude in the league like there are people who feel that way about him but now we lead james harden get away with that because he is not anything actually like people tend to think of any decided to blow that all the way up this year but decided to lead the league again which had dug before. But we don't think about because we just think about him. Jack and shots all the time everything and nothing about this. Do you have the strength. And the body control to pull off a well. Executed flop is something that is under appreciated skill. We want to celebrate. But it's not easy to do. But i think that go ahead. No thanks. cnn. Last part there are plenty of things that i don't think are worth celebrating but are difficult to do and floppy is one of them like. That's a difficult thing to pull off. But i'm not going to see here in gap given a war being best flopper but in the playoffs. We understand you go up against a particular opponent game after game and things change. So i think basketball has become even more difficult than it wasn't a path to project how the playoffs are gonna turn out based on what happens in the regular season especially in this season where the season is shorter. Have less rest and no one is really thinking about much of what happens now because there's no homeport advantage so as much as we want to dig into these numbers in project how we think gonna turn out really feel like we don't know any of these teams are until they get to the playoffs and figure it out. Look at most important thing in the nba playoffs. How many guys you got. That can get their own shot. Right the seventy three and nine warriors didn't have enough dues that get their own shot. Well net after three guys who can get their own shots all the highest level and in the playoffs. They will be playing against teams. That have five guys. They can get their own shots. Because they're all being guarded by brooklyn. Nets has the naomi. Osaka era officially begun. Naomi osaka won. The australian open felt like she wanted the australian open and the semi finals by beating serena williams kinda like that miracle on ice situation but they played another match to anyway. This is her fourth major that she has one and she looked dominant while doing it at the australian open but i feel like the area had begun already. I guess maybe we're just going to talk about it now. You could make the argument that be going to the. Us open where she got. That win over serena williams. But i feel like we've been in this or awhile or maybe that's just a function of who i am aware of but if it is her era i can't wait. I am not sure the last time there was a women's tennis player that i felt like looked at it was like wow. She seems really really cool. Like on top of being dominated every interview with her the way this expose yourself and things all social justice and everything else like service learning. Y'all had i am with this like this is what the future of women's tennis is going to look like. We go have a hell of a future. To carry off road serena williams good for her asaka. Williams does feel like the cowboys and the forty niners in the nineties. Whoever wins that nfc championship game is obviously then go on to win the super bowl. So you're right that's win if you're gonna say it's an era. It happened when she beat her and that finals. But i i don't know. I saw justin intensely. Say this on around the horn last week and i was like yeah. I love naomi osaka for all the reasons that you just said it's tweeted. This is great. I love it and then i started looking at what she's actually accomplish accomplice. She's won a major in the last four years which is impressive. But when i look back at all the other eras when you get an error named that you like serena was winning three a year. Steffi graf was winning two or three a year like it feels hard for me to be like all right now. The naomi osaka era. I be like we are on the verge of we are about to step into it but we aren't there yet and but i like you..

"I know that sounds really weird, but you know we're in this time and place right now. Where a lot of us are communicating with other people whether it's friends, family co workers through these video conference calls whether it's you know zoom or facetime or whatever technology you choose to follow. We love to sell three of those, but I think these sudden. Sudden prominence of these technologies in our lives right now has put new focus on what our homes look like in the background like how we present ourselves and our houses by what is on the screen behind us when we do, the zoom calls totally I was on his own call for work. The other day and I like had to find a place on my bed. That didn't look like I was on abandoned. Like I'm doing this. I'm going to bed but I'm going to make it. Look like there's just like an artful mirror behind me and I could be anywhere I could be like in the foyer. Still have a foyer I want to get into that in a second because I think there are actually two parts to this phenomenon, one is the like how you actually change your own home, but the other one is also like the voyeuristic element of getting to see other people's homes in this way because we're not just talking. Talking about like your boss or your co worker, or your grandma or whomever, you're calling, but also like TV now we're used to now seeing newscasters and sports, figures and celebrities, and all these people coming to our screens from their homes with their own offices and kitchens and bedrooms in the background, and it's like this kind of weird way to see inside someone's personal life that we weren't privy to before I I love watching some good news. You guys remember. We dug that with John Kuczynski is it. Christmas gear croissants. Kaczynski, Kristen Ski I just liked seeing his bookshelves and I like seeing like his kids made the sign like there's this homey nece, and this like almost depth like i. feel like I, know him better because I've seen a room in his house and I've seen how his kids draw I know. That's false death, but it feels like it's almost seems like a weird equalizer in a way like I know. A lot of these people have homes that are much grander and fancier than our everyday homes, but still to see this person whom you're used to seeing under studio, lighting and with makeup and fancy cameras suddenly. Just in their basement yeah, no, there was some celebrity I forget who it was now, but they were in front of big billiton's, and like four people deemed me and said like they need your help with the built in I. Wish I could remember who it was, but I was like that's so funny that you're looking at the celebrities instead of their face, but then I'm also like I m too, and I have an idea I heard a whole podcast where they were talking about during the NFL draft, which was held virtually this year. We didn't watch it. We're not NFL draft. Be pulled our sports as power-washing. To podcast about the NFL draft, but they were saying how people were getting distracted, and more people actually tuned into the draft this year, and they think partially because of the voyeur element of getting to see in the players and owners homes like that, and so became almost a more watchable event than it typically is something intimate about it right even if it's like they've selected this room, and it has nothing personal in the background and decorated. Maybe it's like in their guest house like we don't know the full story, but there is something about being like. Wow, that's like in their private space and we're seeing it and there's actually a. A whole twitter account about this. You mentioned the thing about wanting to restyle bookcases. Someone sent me a link to an article about room raider. I don't think that's the actual twitter. Handle but I'll link the twitter account in the show young dot com slash podcast, but is this account that basically all they do is post screen shots of people who are on television you know through zoom or some other teleconferencing and the twitter account rates their background, snarky or funny than snarky like it's not really that hard hitting. Although they do call out specific things, they'll say love. Angle bookcases Nice at a plant I would fully agree that everyone could. Could add another plant two and three. I also even found an article through Verandah, where they consulted with an interior designer about how people can make their homes look better in the background and it lines up with a lot of things that actually room raiders talking about I. Don't know who runs the room rate account, and if they have an interior design background. I don't think they do. I think they're more comedic well. I would say these are my personal tips because I have had a lot of work calls lately where I'm on. You know a great, and it's only four of us I know my rectangles pretty big. You know when? When I'm on a call with like thirty people for work I don't really care about the background that much, but when I'm on like just a few people, I'm like Oh. They're gonna see everything, so my tips are like to face a window, so there's light on my face as opposed to like being under a candlelight and looking like a goon. Yes, and this is actually something that we have struggled with because I think you might assume we have plenty of Nice style backgrounds to choose from when Nigel. No, especially in our last house, because when we laid out our office and everything, we didn't have this perspective on a layout like. Like what will the background look like on a call like this? That was not in the forefront of our brain, like it is now, and we used to like to make a lot of our calls using my desktop computer, because it has the big screen, but I sat with two windows behind me, so we were basically silhouettes on every call always which I didn't mind guys because you don't even have to make about when you're. You're like anonymous light, but my other tip. I was GONNA. Say some tips so number one face. A window is nice because you get that natural light on your face number to try not to look like. Like. You're into weird or intimate of a spot. Why WanNa look like I was in my bed. I also don't like to look like ooh. That could be a bathroom. I'm not in a bathroom, but when I look at the background, my question, I asked myself as like. We'll someone think this is a bathroom, and if the answer is yes, I move, and then my third tip is just around for something weird in the background. Because often something weird becomes normal to your eyeballs. An example would here. We have packing blankets still on a few windows that we're waiting for blinds for those look normal to me because I've seen them for. For six weeks now, but to someone else they look like. Why do you have like gray shaggy felt hanging from one side of the window off of a nail, like looks like the pelt of a very sad creature, so look around and say like what are my eyeballs used to? That seems normal to me, but isn't really normal. Another example would be like if you always hanging your bra over the chair. Don't do the zoom call in front of the chairs. Everyone can see your bra in the background like think about what's behind you and then shift the camera a little bit to make it look. I don't know
"era" Discussed on Young House Love Has A Podcast
"So welcome to Young House love has a podcast for we have deep, and not so deep conversations about diy, design and life at home today we're sharing how a family trip earlier this year impacted our decision. Move in ways that we almost didn't realize plus House Zuma's changed the way that we see our home decor and an embarrassing story that I might never live down. Sherry got a question on instagram a little while ago. That made us realize something about this. Move that neither of us really consciously acknowledged before. We thought it'd be interesting to talk about it here on the podcast so to back up a little bit. You have probably heard us say that one of the things that gave us the confidence and motivation to make this move to Florida and to downsize and to do. All these things was our experience. Experience living in Cape, Charles where our beach house was for the last summer. Yes, we were there for months and months. It was like we forward our mail. We fully embraced life there and I think it taught all of us that we could live in a smaller house. We actually liked being close to our neighbors. We loved the walkability. We loved the beach lifelike, not only did I like it, but our kids thrived throve thrive three they were. Everyone just had like the best summer of their lives and I. Think it did give us a lot of confidence like hey, I did that and it was great. Now I can do it again. I think for us. The link between that experience and the decision to move here to Florida is very clear. It's very obvious that's sort of how building actually people have even been saying if you listen back to some of our older episodes from like years and years ago, like back to the. The beginning you hear little threads of like how this idea of downsizing and moving has been building, whether it's been consciously or subconsciously someone said like episode thirty three was a very clear and obvious foreshadowing and I was like that was so early on. You know I think either way. There's been lots of touch points along the way that we can point back to you, but we had overlooked one that someone had asked about and I think you're actually have the question more than once. Once. Yeah, a few people picked up on it and the question was. Do you think your trip to Costa? Rica which was in January had anything to do with you buying a house in Florida in February. Yes, literally I think almost to the date from getting back from Costa Rica in January fast one month, and we were buying a house in Florida so it was a very close time line, but I don't think you and I ever really connected those two things very consciously in her. Her head as to. was there anything about that trip to Costa Rica that US this decision. Because we had been so attached the idea that it was Charles that led us here. Cave Charles was what started like a smoldering desire like picture of fire, but it's like it's like the fire that the person's trying to make on survivor, and they're blowing it, and it's just like a little bit of a plume of smoke, but it's not full on raging yet. I really appreciate the survivor. Your I knew the key to a proud husband right now, so that's smokey, little early blaze that was happening from Cape Charles, and then I think you could describe Costa Rica as like the accelerate like that is when it became the raging bonfire that burns the little string, and then like Jeff probst is like. Oh, we've got a winner in the flags. Go up and everybody freaks out because someone the fire making challenge I. Hope you're still with me if you don't watch survivor. Hundred percent so Costa Rica. was that huge bonfire and just back up real quick, so we went to Costa Rica for a week back in January. It was part of our kids winter break from school because this year they actually two full weeks, so we had like a week in Richmond in which we celebrate. Christmas and do all the family things and they had a full week starting on new. Year's Day that we could go do something, so we went as a foursome to Costa. Rica I'll put the Lincoln the show if you want to read more about it or if you want any tips about going to Costa Rica with kids because. Because it was our first international trip as a family, and it was like Super Fun, and also in that way that it lit the blaze like it was another example of how like there are people who live like this all the time like we met couples there who were literally from Johns hometown like it was like an alternate reality of someone with John's upbringing could end up living in Costa Rica Yeah I think if there were to clear things that happened from that Costa, Rica trip one was just the confirmation of some of the same things from Cape Charles is that we enjoyed being a warm beaches climate? I mean who doesn't. But, we also liked stain in a small house with a pool where we were sort of encouraged to spend more time outside and doing things, but I think the other part was his thing you said is that we actually bumped into people there. That were Americans or of Canadians as well who had moved to Costa Rica to make this their full-time life, and not that it's new information that people do this sort. Sort of thing all the time, but like meeting, these people face to face and talking to them about how they I mean effectively uprooted their entire lives in came to this new country to start doing something completely different like there was one family who basically started like a butterfly farm, and that was the thing they did. Half the year was they lived in Costa Rican Round Butterfly Farm. It was a butterfly sanctuary. Like I, need to point out because they were like helping to foster new butterfly species, and also the mom, we met the mom of the son who started the sanctuary, and she was telling us how she uprooted the kids, and they grew up in Paris, so they're so used to living all over when her son was like moving to Costa Rica, she was like sure I'll spend half the year there with you, and she goes back to the US I think for the other half, but she's just been like everywhere and I was like. Wow, what a fascinating life! Well! I think it was just. Just eye opening to meet people who didn't stay on the you know quote, unquote, normal path, and like move to the suburbs. Get a big house big yard like we had been doing for so many years, I mean I think just being in blogging instagram and seen lots of people who have made unconventional choices I guess you could say for their families like you know taking your off to travel the world or like living in a tiny home with the baby I think having those reference points, and also more recently meeting these people in Costa Rica in made it feel like I don't know. Know, maybe moving to different state isn't all that out there idea. Yeah, well, and I remember later when we got back home to our AIRBNB and I said to John. Do you think we live in a house this small. It's like my favorite game to play. I played it at the Beach House all the time. Whenever we're in like a small AIRBNB, I say like with this actually worked for our family, fulltime and John always basically has the same answer, which is like yes, but we need one more room for an office or like. Yes, but the kids couldn't share a room forever. It's fun. Fun On vacation to share room, but it's not always fun to do it. Twenty, four, seven, three, sixty, five, right exactly, and so his answer was. We would probably need a few more rooms and is probably around eight hundred nine.

They're going to have to sell their own current players Tony and their alums because of their alums, and there's some famous guys in your guys who played in the NFL if they don't WanNA sell Alma Mater. What's going to happen at the University of Iowa? You're going to see them sink like a rock in the big ten if they can't do. So let's just take a look at at what I think is going on here. This is the me too movement coming to athletics. There's an inventory out there that you're going to have to go through. You're going to have to go through all of these claims as people look back on their careers and they say this happened to me. All of that is going to have to be dealt with this is. You always talk about the real hard conversations. These are the you'll hard conversations to use our first story with NASCAR. Some of these coaches, some of these staff members. They're going to end up like confederate statues. They're going to be toppled down. This you know change is not easy. It's not just a will do this. Everything will be fine these hard conversations. You and I have to have them you. Everybody's gotTa have everybody's GonNa ask credibility. During dating trips now. Don't you think recruiting visits to people's homes and going to be a little bit different now. A lot different. It's going to be show me prove it. Sign it. Give me an out if it doesn't work all of those things. Let's move on to a topic. I know that you're interested in because it's you boy Daryl Morey who have merged from his cocoon, and he has told something called the pump podcast that he takes the blame for not surrounding James Harden with a good enough cast. He said I'm quoting most days I wake up saying I've let them down because I haven't gotten the right players to win a title unquote. Bunny standing with your boy on this one. No I think it's a great bit of GM. ING. Out there and you say the James Harden Saint James Harden He. He knows the stories out there. Put It on me. I like people at every level who can say I will take accountability and sell that and mean Daryl means. Daryl's not saying this sort of. sock up to James, Harden. He believes this because he says he thinks about it at night and I know he does because I've talked to him about it and no, I'm not pinning this on on Darrow Maury James Harden's had some big moment in his career and most of them. He is not cashed in on because they've come in things like all game. Five gained six gained seven. I mean we've seen it Tony so no, I mean when when Chris Paul was on that team and they nearly had it. I you know I believe if Chris Paul is healthy and he doesn't have to go out with the with the injury. Game six or game seven one of those games I think Houston's going to win and get to the NBA finals. I know you don't really believe that but James Harden wasn't the most important player on that team, even though he was perhaps the best player on that team, but Daryl Morey put the right team round James Harden at least twice and James Harden had every chance to get his team through. If you're going to be one of the goats, you gotTa Win Those Games and he didn't do it. So. Let me say first of all that if Daryl morey wakes up every morning thinking about James Harden. Matches you cannot wake up every morning. I think about James Heart and let's go over what you're talking about. James Harden is a great player on a Wednesday night. He's ever in January and February. But in the playoffs in clinching games two thousand fifteen golden state. To of eleven shooting twelve turnovers, two, thousand, seventeen, San Antonio to of eleven shooting six turnovers, two thousand eighteen golden state to thirteen from three, two, thousand, nine, hundred and Golden State four turnovers in the fourth quarter Houston lost them all daryl. Morey tries everything Chris Poor Russell Westwood go small. Go big down. Boy Tries everything. Not Everybody wins Mike Not Everybody wins. There's some great players out there who have never won and and a lot of people came up against Michael Jordan and it couldn't be my. You, know, James Harden couldn't win with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in. Oklahoma said it sometimes happens, but the fault is as much. James Harden's as it is everybody else's and not everybody wins all the time. They don't I mean just little history lesson, boys and girls, Jerry West is the logo and we love him. But Jerry West and the Los Angeles Lakers choked time after time. They want one and who's the first person who reminds US say? How great is Jerry? Jerry says. We didn't do so I don't know if James Harden has to have a moment. We deals with himself and how he's playing Tony. Those numbers you cited those are indictments. They are in terms of great playoff basketball, and by the way it's not automatic. It's hard to have great games in those moments and he. Hasn't has it? Is it is? Golf Tony. Golf I know how excited you are. About to get a restart Thursday at the colonial in Dallas, good CBS announced yesterday that some, but not all golfers will be might this week, and none of them will be wearing earpieces which allowed for the announcer. To player conversations that we saw enjoyed so much in the match with Tiger and Phil Manning and Brady. I know how crazy you are about having people might up. What do you think about this? Okay, so first of all. I don't care if everybody talks, but if some people are miked up if you carry one little piece of equipment, that's physical I. believe everybody's got to carry them. You have to talk to everybody but everyone. The playing field has to be level in that regard as far as I'm concerned I. Find it amusing, Nick Faldo. Who's really good in a great guest on this show. When we used to have guests, he said Dolphins are entertainers, and they have to do something different now. Yeah, they do but Nick Faldo also admits he was a golfer, he'd say no I don't WanNa do this I don't Wanna I don't WanNa have to talk to anybody out there. To your point, just being mic`ed up to me is half a loaf is weak. I want the cross talk. I want the dialogue. Barclay. Did you know you got I? Want you to have to answer. Some might up. So what so we know you want Charles in the tower? Now or on the course you'd provoking people talk. I know that's what you want. To be. Like a giant blimp. That's what I want. On. Tony, you notice only about five golfers you WanNa hear I. Understand what you're saying is. They ought to be Mike for a formality. That thing is a way that much. It's a microphone. That's it. The technology today allows for some wireless piece to be carried around that a golfer. Does it notice? We're told I don't want to hear from all of them I don't want them. All might cause ninety percent of people. Being Mike is a waste of time. Where is the NFL the NBA? You just get people like Lawrence Taylor helping whatever redskin. He ran passed on a Sunday to say son Y'all got to do better than this. You don't get that often enough right so if you could have war if you can tell her everybody's GonNa be Lt. that put them out there, but they're not gonna be that. Now I know you're right about that and you don't have to talk to all of them i. just think that what made the baseball games so charming was the players were miked up yet? A couple of guys on the cobbs Brian Rizzo right I think. Those guys. Now these yeah. Okay well. Rory is personality of justice. This is yes. They will personnel, and by the way just as a side note, the field is great for the colonial. A top five and eight of the top ten tiger I wish I would've said yeah. I'll go play time. You shouldn't just walk into the room with the rest of the boys can come ten minutes late. You want the room to be feeling. Then you look and you see tie. Come on now I. Don't Tiger show up for this. You'll get there. then. Let them come to the second round. Just show up. Say. Let's go great with Debbie Tiger with a microphone for the second round over the weekend. They'll be so cool.

"We're going to START WITH NASCAR today. Bubba Wallace, who is the only black driver in Nascar, told CNN and I'm quoting now. My next step would be to get rid of all confederate flags. No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race. Get them out of here and sports business. Journal is reporting that. NASCAR is considering this. So, what do you think should NASCAR do this? Just start with my bias, you know me well enough, but let me just remind people. I I'm a son of two southerners who fled. The South fled during the great migration after the depression and. I feel a certain way about the confederate flag, and probably even more strongly than Bob Wallace and I understand exactly. I see the southern flag and it. I mean it it just. It raises the hair on my arm I I. Find It loathesome. Tony I don't know that this is gonna fly I. Mean a significant portion of NASCAR FAN base believes front first of all is southern, if not directly from in terms of heritage, and believes in the confederate flag, and when you talk about Biz is going to take a strong stand, and it's going to take a stand where the the president of NASCAR says. This is what we're doing. He's GonNa. GonNa, get support from the other drivers, not just bubble. Wallace Jimmy Johnson is out there saying he's out in front saying Hey I'm educating myself about all of this I am calling friends friends of color and listening to the experiences of their life, and he's already talked to bubble. Wallace and I'm sure we'll talk to him again. I admire the courage. It takes to say get this Outta here. Do I, know that the NASCAR is going to do that and make it fly. No I, don't. So I was looking at one of those video presentations that the NASCAR drivers did which is sort of similar to one that the NFL players did a lot of big names. NASCAR involved including recently retired. Dale Earnhardt Jr. whose word mean something to me and I. Think in the sport and they said they were committed to listening. They said and I'm quoting now to no longer be silent to make real change. This would be real change. This would be walk the walk. Because as you say, there are southern roots in Nascar and a lot of these people. They look at the confederacy as a sort of romance of rebellion as breaking away from authority, they may have no understanding whatsoever that to black people. There's no romance in it that states seceded from the union and fought for the confederacy did so to retain slavery, so there's gotta be a business calculation here and we're both at the same spot because you have to say how many white fans will walk away. How many black fans will walk in, but I will tell you this might, and I think I. Find Myself saying this all the time. This! Is that real moment? These are those real conversations. You can't sell look confederate flag getting more. You can't do it so I think Nascar not too should I think they will. I do Tony. I. Once again. That's about the fifth straight day I. Find Myself saying partner. I hope you're right, but you don't Tony One hundred and ten miles south from where you sit in your attic is a place called Richmond and they host a big race. Yeah, and if you tell me can go to Richmond and that race in Nascar, veteran flag in the future and in Richmond, they just took down a famous confederate statue, or decided to take down the governor, so we know that that change appears to be a common, but that would be that would be substantive change. Tony I think. You're one hundred percent right? Yes it would. Yes, it would yeah. Let's. Move Tony. To this I was story over the weekend I restrict coach Chris Doyle was put on administrative leave after allegations of bias behavior toward black, I will football players since that action, more and more current and former Hawkeyes have spoken out about the culture for black players at Iowa last night, Sophomore Defensive Back Caviar. meriwether posted a statement on twitter. The State of Of Iowa, fans would not support players who neil for the national anthem quote. Do not support us during the season. Do Not Watch us on TV. Do not ask for photos and autographs I would rather play. Four thousand fans would care about us as people than seventy thousand who only care about us when we are on the field entertaining them close quote. Tony. We continue in this vein. Your thoughts on what's unfolding at Iowa. It's very problematic for Iowa football. It's very problematic for the longest tenured D. One coach out there ferrets I hope. I pronounce his name correctly. He wants to recruit black players into a state that is ninety one percent white demographically. He's got his current and former black players, saying they were held to a different standard than white players. He's got this strength coach out there. WHO The black players have turned their I R- on this is Fahrenheit. Drew brees moment. He's gotTa find a way to get that team together and convince them that. This is a Redo for all of them that he's with them. I don't know. I don't know if he can do it. Well Tony. His credibility is what's at stake here. For that for that program and the university boss's the president of Iowa is going to have to really sort of be plugged into this because Tony, look. GROWNUP CHICAGO. There were always I will recruiters basketball and football where I lived getting kids from Chicago the south side of Chicago included and so Tony. When I grew up. I didn't know much about historically black colleges, because the big ten schools, including the University of Iowa had black students. You decades back you go decades back with many of the victims schools, and so yes, the coaching staff and I will now their credibility is on the line when they say look, we're going to make it so that you still want to.

"John's ideas. Here actually ty into aleks. Danko piece debt is coming which I suggested to you as a weekend. Long REFU weeks ago quoting again from Johns piece. That sort of referencing that as the Roi of s spend becomes more predictable. A non financial layer will emerge within silicon valley similarly helping to fuel its growth. This capital can help partially compensate for the slowing market based growth tailwinds. The suite of services will benefit from a tech specific approach. Real-time debt offerings based on operating. Kpi's securitization of software and retail investor facing SAS bonds and quote but that all is a layer above the structural ideas that I think are really at the bottom of what John is getting at in his piece more immediately to my mind is this quote. There certainly will be ten billion dollar. Companies started within segments slow to adopt technology legal tech construction. Agriculture and mining are all prime candidates for massive new technology entrance but new one hundred billion dollar outcomes are less likely to come from pure Internet companies and quote again. Obviously you should read the whole thing but I think you can see why this piece called me to put on my history hat. The history hat doesn't have any super power other than pattern matching but sometimes pattern matching is just to satisfying to resist. I said towards the tail end of the talk that I gave at Google few years ago. That the next generation of Internet stirrups would inevitably be more interesting than any of the startups that we saw in the recent two decades of tech interesting does not mean better. When I say interesting I just mean interesting more sophisticated. The idea as I said was that the days of simply being first to market the days of simply showing up and planning your flag and claiming unclaimed territory was probably over the days of a handful of people coating up an APP and getting a billion users overnight for the most part with huge glaring exceptions. That's largely behind us as John says in his piece that can and still will happen. It just won't happen as often. The low hanging fruit has been picked in internet technology in the Tyler Cohen. Sense of that phrase the bit that John's essay hit on that really resonated with me was the idea that paradigm shifts as fundamental as the one that we've all just lived through that we're all continuing to live through. They don't come along every lifetime or even every century in a capitalist world. I'm talking about clear the Chessboard Cambridge Explosion Types of Paradigm Shifts. Like we've seen with the Internet era with the shift to digital technology. We may want big shifts like this to come regularly even every decade or every generation. But usually they don't. In an economic sense there have really been only three fundamental truly foundational paradigm shifts in the whole history of capitalism number. One was the age of exploration which was let's find all the natural resources in the world and monetize them number two was the industrial revolution. Which was let's take all the natural resources in the world and turn them into products and number three was the digital revolution which was take all the resources and products in the world and digitize or virtual is them and then distribute them Ed Zero Marginal Cost Epoch defining paradigm shifts are sexy and addictive because they create great fortunes and new power dynamics and as the clear the chessboard and Cambridge Explosion Analogy suggests they tend to slaughter the incumbents often on mass. Which of course clears the way for these new fortunes and these new powers to be made even smaller. Echo like paradigm shifts can unleash unbelievable. Creativity and value see for example the shift from the desktop to the Mobile Web. But the key point about paradigm shifts are that they happen as big bangs and they happen irregularly as asteroid hitting the Earth Type Events. They're short and they're sharp but then they're often followed by longer eras in their wake which is where the changes to society. Really settle in. And that's the era that I think we're entering and the winners in these post. Big Bang eras the winners. In these times of consolidation. If you want to call them that are more interesting to me. If I'm being honest after all if you're a conquistador and you discover a new continent then. Yeah there are vast fortunes to be made by planning your flag and claiming all the resources you found and a lot of the winners of both the early and late stages of the industrial revolution were called robber barons because they just happened to be at the right place at the right time when steel and oil. The combustion engine. What have you turned out to be the coming thing? In history similarly the first people to successfully find the right mechanisms to connect all of humanity together via computers they had some element of timing and luck to their fortunes as well. This is not to say that. It's all luck inventing industries out of whole cloth does necessarily required deep levels of genius. Bill Gates made the software industry thing when no one thought that there was any value to it creating trillions of dollars of value and social networking when. Everyone thought it was a sad that the kids were into does require unparalleled vision. And you have to be wicked smart to make actual industries out of historical trends. Anyway like Rockefeller wasn't the only person to realize oil would someday power the modern world but he was the keenest taking advantage of that fact. With a big enough lens the steam engine was probably a historical inevitability but creating the railroad industry wasn't required vision however wants any big paradigm shift matures. It becomes less and less likely that new fortunes will be made simply by being I simply by being the first one to realize where history is going it takes genius to recognize the tidal wave of history and stand in front of it but it takes a different type of genius to organize the currents of history in such a way to create a lasting business or industry in the Big Bang. It's winner take all and the field is so virgin and so vast there can be lots of winners but as John writes in his piece after the Big Bang. It's a zero sum game. The winners only win by taking share from others on the field. If that's the era that we're entering another way to say that is now you have to win by being better. Cleverer more interesting. This is what I was hinting at in my talk at Google being I making the right bet in the face of a historical paradigm shift can hide a lot of sense. It can paper over the bluntness of your good idea. The new startups and the new products. That we're likely to see in. This decade will be more interesting more sophisticated because they'll have to be Henry. Ford was an entrepreneur of a Big Bang paradigm shift but Alfred. Sloan who turned General Motors into the axiomatic company of its time was an entrepreneur of a post. Big Bang era on a basic level. Henry Ford invented the idea of the car. But Alfred Sloan invented the automobile industry inventing the car as we understand it not only inventing it as a product of mass consumption but also on the level of inventing thing. I you know it has wheels. It has sort of starting mechanism. It has a steering wheel. That goes here. Heck settling on the idea of a steering wheel as the standard interface that takes a certain type of genius. I'm not denying that. But as the story of Henry Ford and the Ford Motor Company through the nineteen fifties and sixties shows. Having that inventive genius can only take you so far in a post. Big Bang era you need an Alfred. Sloan type genus to come along and introduced concepts like brand architecture. Industrial Engineering Automotive Design. And styling even things like planned obsolescence. You need to do that to create a mature industry. What John's piece crystallizes I think is the notion that at least with Internet technology we might be in for a couple decades where the entrepreneurs that will be successful will be the Alfred. Sloan's not the Henry Forts Henry. Ford could famously offer his cars and only one color black because he was first and if he wanted a different color you could go screw. But in the mature era one type of car lost out to Alfred. Sloan and his annual model changes. And you know things like tailfins now. You could argue. That one era is invention and the other era is merely refinement and yeah that's true to a certain extent. The Nineteen Twenties and thirties saw an explosion of consumer products and consumer electronics and entire industries. That pretty much stayed the same for the better part of the twentieth century. I said in my book that before the Internet era took off entrepreneurialism at least in the United States hadn't been cool for many decades. That's because we were in between big BANGS. If my grandfather saw indoor plumbing air conditioning the washing machine the dishwasher the television etc all enter his household in the first decades of his life. Really the only new thing in the second decade of his life was the microwave oven. He was born in an era of a big bang and he matured and aged in an era of consolidation. But that doesn't mean that he grew in a stagnant world. That doesn't mean that the post World War. Two decades of the Twentieth Century Were Without Entrepreneurial Geniuses where without great companies where without innovations or efficiencies they were just different sorts of geniuses and companies and innovations and efficiencies big bangs are one thing but the aftermath the era of consolidation and ubiquity requires different skill sets and strategies from entrepreneurs and companies and businesses. And that is what John's piece crystallized to me. We're leaving a big bang era and were settling into an era of refinement of consolidation. I'm not arguing whether or not that's a good or a bad thing and I don't think John is either I'm just pointing out. You need a certain sort of entrepreneur for the left side of s curve. And you need a different sort of entrepreneur for the right side of an s curve. And I think we're in the right side of the s curve at least for Internet technologies at least for the next decade or so and. I think that that is what John is saying to. When he says stuff like this quote the blitz scaling playbook is more fitting as a reflection of the past two decades than as a prescription for the twenty twenties when the ecosystem level diseconomies rival the company level economies of scale. I scale may become. I fail unit economics matter more than ever carefully measured growth will win quote. I want you to go talk to tiny..

"era" Discussed on Aviation Week's Check 6 Podcast
"And Defense Editor Steve. Trimble and we are here a week. After the Air Force Association event at which SPACEX is Elon. Musk provoked the crowd with something that seemed at first a little bit. Outlandish is it the end of the fighter era. But I think Steve. You did a nice job of looking under the hood and talking to the Air Force and finding out. Well it's not as crazy an idea as all that. Why don't you bring us up to speed on what the Air Force actually has planned for the future of the fighter? Okay well So I I should say You must Didn't even phrase it as a question In fact it was so provocative he didn't say that the fighter jet era will be will be over at some point He said it has passed. The fighter. Jet Era has passed. And you have to remember. The context is the air warfare. Symposium Elon Musk Space Entrepreneur Automobile entrepreneur. Solar Energy Entrepreneur comes into this with no practical military flying experience. No airpower expertise under his belt and then tells the entire audience filled with hundreds of pilots fighter pilots even that their jobs are irrelevant. Yes is it pretty provocative thing for somebody who is also a contractor to the air force to say and it did produce audible gas in in the audience When he said it and you know sort of uncomfortable murmurings through through the crowd for just a few moments and then they interviewer onstage was lieutenant-general Thompson. Was supposed to be interviewing Elon. Musk about his area of expertise. Which is face I think. He regretted that they covered space. And they covered automotive and then Donald Thompson has so what do you think about the Arrow domain do? Do you have any thoughts about where this is going in the air domain where the future is taking us and that's where you made the statement journal. Townsend regretted asking. That question the Lakers. After just I mean just a few seconds after he lan said that and there was the sort of quiet uncomfortable pause. He quickly changed the subject to say well. Let's let's go back to what you said about failure. It was an interesting moment and actually I think an important moment. Because it Kinda sums up as as we as you were just saying that the air force actually you know even if the rank and finally our force earn quite on the same page right now The Air Force leadership is making it pretty clear that they are heading in that direction. It's not that they agree. That fighter jet era has passed Clearly they're still buying a thirty five as they're still buying efficacy XS and they plan to operate them for quite a long time But they are preparing for a day perhaps quite soon when say Essex seemed pre block Twenty five thirties could be replaced by what we now see his experiments in low cost tradeable aircraft like the xq Fifty Eight. The credos designed us. That started flying in March of last year. It's completed four flights so far and crash landing and it's been returned to service. The the it is an experimental aircraft is supposed to be so that part of its capability. I mean this great work that way. So in general homes I should back up and say you know we've been hearing about this idea. This concept really from will will roper. Who is the civilian acquisition leader of of the Air Force? But we haven't really heard anybody on the uniform side say something like this outside of the acquisition community really until they are warfare symposium in the media round table session with General Holmes. Who's the commander of Air Combat Command? Which is in charge of managing the fighter fleets in defining the requirements. For what comes next talked about you know. He said somewhere between the next five eight years. We're going to have to start replacing S. Sixteen Buck twenty-five Thirties. Now of course the plan has always been to replace those with thirty five days so I don't know if they've changed the plan there. That wasn't clear. We're still trying to figure that part out. But he said we're GONNA take a look at these things that were experimenting with which includes L. Casteel the low cost. A charitable aircraft system demonstrator the issue fifty eight and Sky Board which is very similar type of aircraft. They haven't selected the platform it could be. Xq Fifty eight could be a few other types of aircraft that has an artificial intelligence brain that allows the aircraft to learn maneuvers as it flies. Just like a pilot would artificial intelligence so they they've now sort of defined path to integrating these kinds of aircraft into the service. And you know this comes against the backdrop of the the sea change that we've seen over the past year and the next generation dominance program. Which when I started writing about it four or five years ago was seen as you know pretty typical air force acquisition. We've had a fifth generation fighters with twenty to thirty five. This'll be a sixth generation fighter. Start replacing the F twenty two probably around twenty thirty twin engined aircraft stealthy perhaps no vertical tail so you have VHS stealth other types of features that we expect to see what seems. I don't know if it's been derailed or if it's been a different track or just deferred but it seems right. Now that the focus and next generation or dominance is this kind of aircraft this this aircraft that you must talking about. I mean there was actually nothing new about this. I mean I've been writing. Let's go back to nine hundred fifty seven richest defense minister. I was to nine hundred fifty seven bridge defense. Minister Duncan Sandys put out a white paper that basically said the day of the manned. Combat Airplane is over. It's can be bliss missiles missiles. He cancelled all bunch of programs nearly nearly completely prey to protect industry. Same as musk of his time quite never quite recovered from it but he was the same thing they were facing a new technology in which case was ballistic missiles and they and he and others at the same time it happened in the US as well so so the white to meet this new threat was the missile annul the manned fighter. Now you know here we all seventy years on and we still have mine fight. But what's happened is we've gone from a focus on Europe where a six hundred Mile Range. A three hundred mile radius faction. Whatever is that. We did on our fighters for theft adequate for Europeans theater. You can get to where getting it either target get back in. Don't overburden your refueling assets. You then you look at the Pacific and no showed basing limited tanker assets and you have a replace that come reach the mainland in the look at some of these scenarios that these airplanes just don't go far enough see. Need hundreds onto the tankers or something like that. So you know what Steve. Be Writing about this this thinking about maybe if we do builds as generation fighter. It doesn't look like it could be much larger and longer range airplane if you start talking about an airplane that stays in the NFL longer than crew then becomes an issue. How do they how do you are? You GonNa have to augment that crew some because they can't stay alert for the amount of time it takes to fly that distancing then you've go the artificial intelligence the autonomy technology that he's just marching on that no ends. Do they each just marching on? So you start looking at. How do we team? It's you know I've been writing about for forty five years old and most and teaming of manned and unmanned airplane have has been almost lights all that time has been there in the background but the technology is never been a till now and the war fighter pool has never been there and that may be. What's changing because now I'm GONNA wind back. Yeah let me stop you there for a minute. So is that British example. You cited from the nineteen fifties it quivalent to my calms or is it as a privilege we own. Musk is an equivalent. It somebody looking at the technology the global technology picture and saying that because the technology has changed something that we've assumed will always exist. No long may no longer exists Duncan Sandys looked at that ballistic. Missile system is all inside. There is just no place for manned aircraft in future conflict Elon. Musk looks at the advances in a and says hey I can do what a fighter pilot can do. So he's he's he's he's looking similar thing and espousing similar connor classic view. But what's different this time? Right in the military is kind of already headed the way he's headed but I do think that the timescale may not be you know. There's a lot of wind back to one. Other little example here. So when x forty-seven the key the unmanned carrier aircraft demonstrator and then you class which came out that the navy's carrier based the concept was to replace manned combat aircraft carrier decks with unmanned aircraft right and that was what our community wanted to do. It was what the upper levels of the navy. Acquisition community wanted to do the plan as they sold the benefit of of these vehicles. These long long range long endurance. Long Loiter weapons in the Pacific Environment. Now what happens is you to recruitment program and a whole bunch communities pile on top right and what we get out. That is twenty five stingray. Which is a force multiplier? It's a tanker. It's not a combat aircraft and the reason is not a comeback off. This is Suzie start to become a reality. That was a reaction from the Comeback News. Say I'm not taking them out. That compare play off that deck to put this thing on that point here. Is that if you're a combat command or if you have to guarantee the delivery of effects to achieve means right you've got an ego national security strategy and you've got your come back and say you must push the button you must be able to deliver that effect. So that becomes data. How do I guarantee that affect as he bring a Mandak rafter artificially intelligent aircraft it? There's got to be a level of trust a level of guarantee in not systems capability. So that combat commander could say. I can achieve the effect that I'm required to using that system. So we're at the point. We're not yet at the point where that's where this whole idea. Percolated down to what people say. Can I guarantee you cannot trust that we are beginning? See it move down the thing I think right. I mean you've seen in the last two decades. The success of unmanned aircraft in combat in an uncontested airspace right. So you've seen the predators uncontested is a very secondly they're handled in isolation they are managed by a stovepipe from beginning to end. That doesn't really touch and any of the rest of the military machine they they don't put it from largely from runways of on their own as lights based on that they do not answer to do. What Musk is talking about to do is start to talk about. You have to bring these things into close proximity a network them in a way that we just don't do it and I WanNa talk about the demonstration that Northrop Grumman did their the old dock because we and and and he's and talk. I was just dark. Talk that was talked out. Da Slash talk so we went to. We went out to their center locally and they did this demonstration which is fundamentally a multi domain commodity control construct. But what it really came down to was northrop's interest was less in the in the multi domain control more than how to unlock the potential autonomous aircraft and it traces charges back to the expo. Two seven back to that. Ups The guy who ran that program. Scott Winch. It was the guy who did the demonstration for us and he actually said he said mind unbanned teaming that's Baloney. He said you're never going to give afford to pilot the job. Managing flock of unmanned aircraft. It just will never happen but we'll end on this end. Our DEMONSTRATION DID I. That'd be that'd be thinking about it. If a senses it showed a different way of doing it showed where you Matt. You you basically. You don't intimately can you don't have a fighter? Six little unmanned aircraft around what you have is a network system across the Arab going around their jobs. They're surveilling the jamming that during this. And then you send a combat package through the middle of that set of unmanned aircraft doing the jobs that combat communications relate. He tanking over there doing this. That watching the battlefield you send a Phalanx of combat aircraft in and they just said I need that thing jammed over they now. The order goes out the unmanned aircraft jam. Is they go through the valley He said I need to know what the talk is now. So the zero in the right place picture target sends it to the Bowmore on its way and now those bomas controlling those on that aircraft control system is the commodity control system is sitting there looking at this mix of manned and unmanned on the battlefield letting each do its job but connecting midway that you end up getting the effect of intimate manned unmanned teaming but the pilots. I'm not sitting there tapping buttons to send you our envy. But they are. They getting everything they want from the east..
"era" Discussed on History of the 90s
"With dip in popularity. It's not surprising. Many fans are clamoring for a return of the attitude era nowadays anytime the WWe produces anything that is even vaguely reminiscent of the course. Crew days of the late nineties. The Internet wrestling community is lit up with discussions about whether the attitude era will make a comeback fans long four days of the attitude. Era again they. That's that's why you see these days. Wwe Trot out old SARS stone. Cold Steve Austin so often because fans still go wild it was only a couple months ago that stone cold came out and whenever his music hits the fans go absolutely insane still. He hasn't wrestled since two thousand three and yet he is still the USA. Still the biggest star in wrestling and he's not wrestling. He'll come in. He'll give somebody a stone. Cold Steve Butter the FAN stunner. The fans will lose their minds and then he'll leave and people will say man wasn't wrestling great in the nineties. People still eat it up. They love it. But there's very little chance the wwe will return to the ways of the attitude era for one main reason in two thousand and eight the wwe officially went PG after spending most of its existence under the TV fourteen rating. The company decided to shift to a more family oriented product that caters to the masses. The new PG rating and cleaner programming has brought in a lot of new viewers and better advertisers and sponsors like snickers KFC and cricket wireless and according to SPONSORSHIP DOT COM WWe posted a thirty percent year over year increase in sponsorship revenue in two thousand seventeen. That's four times more than twenty. Ten critics complained that with the shift. Wwe is now corny and two kid friendly. But don't expect things to change anytime soon the problem with WWF. Now if you move back to TV fourteen you're losing you'RE GONNA lose a lot of different sponsors and they're publicly held so they can't do that they have to respect a lotta the sponsors that they have and I always say that. Wwe Has the biggest demographic in the world to their targeting anybody from two to eighty two and everyone in between so you don't want to eliminate any part of your demographic just to satiate a part of the audience that will say Oh. Yeah I remember this. It's believed that triple h the current. Ceo of the WWE will take over.

We'll get into what happened back when ratification failed. What's happening now and what the future holds? This story is a wild eld constitutional roller coaster ride that combines politics religion gender race and so much more. The debate is complex but the ask is simple. I have been through a long long journey to learn about appreciate an advocate for the IRA and if a young girl heavily socialize has to be nothing more than an term Abebe factory can do it. You can't do as Alice. Paul said I've never doubted the equal rights was it was the right direction. Most problems are complicated but to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality.

A women's rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights. This is one of the core tenants of the women's March. A women led movement the harnesses the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social social change. I marched at the first women's march in two thousand seventeen because I wanted to be with other women and I wanted to use our collective voices and power to the advocate for the issues that we care about directly impact us. It was an incredible experience. I was surrounded by hundreds of thousands of other women chanting together. I remember I specifically did a chant with the women that I was with from Utah about the equal rights amendment and we talked about the equal rights remember. We tried to get other women to acknowledge them to talk about the IRA at the time. And it's picked up momentum. Since then I still feel just as motivated to dismantle mantle systems of oppression that are so pervasive in our society and join the women's march in their movement for the liberation. Women's March has eight unity principles. And they're all connected to the ER A in some way from ending violence to protecting reproductive rights to worker's rights every pillar of the women's March is inextricably is linked to the fight to ratify the in fact one specific principle of the unity principles for the women's March states.

"era" Discussed on Ordinary Equality
"Equal Rights amendment. Should be seen as something. That's necessary to get real equality for women It also should be seen and as like a flag in the sand a rallying point to transform other misogynistic and patriarchal practices that the need to be dismantled in custody. Amendments have always worked that way. They've always worked as a signpost for where society needs to go. That's representative Jamie Raskin skin. He was my constitutional law professor. Now he represents Maryland's eighth Congressional district in the House of Representatives. I paid rapt attention attention to the sections of constitutional law about gender discrimination. And I didn't like what I heard. It still seemed easy to pass and keep discriminatory or laws on the books. Wasn't the constitution supposed to protect us. We've had seventeen amendments since the bill of rights and the vast majority of them are democracy expanding suffrage extending amendments right there. They've been in the trajectory January of freedom and equality and inclusion the Thirteenth Amendment Abolish slavery the fourteenth amendment extended equal protection and due process to people in their states dates. Fifteenth Amendment said. No race discrimination in voting seventeenth amendment. Said we'RE GONNA Extend the right to the people to decide who their senator is. You'RE GONNA be and take that away from the state legislatures. The Nineteenth Amendment was women's suffrage the twenty-third amendment said people in DC could participate in presidential elections the twenty four th amendment abolish poll taxes in federal elections twenty. Sixth Amendment lowered the voting age to eighteen so all of these chart ecorse of expanding banding suffrage and Democratic Inclusion. But it's definitely incomplete if we don't have any rights amendment more on that to come we'll dive deep on why why this matters so much from a legal perspective but for now just know that might worldview was rocked are remembered back to what I had been taught growing up and I realized that my own Church my own mother and grandmother had helped keep women like me out of the Constitution and then I slowly began to realized I was a feminist and I met other Mormons with similar perspectives. A friend invited me to a rally at the. US Capitol to resurrect actor group called Mormons for the era. We reignited that same same group that Sonia Johnson was excommunicated for starting in the nineteen seventies. I had gone from steward of Traditional Mormon values to full-blown full-blown era missionary. When I figured out that women weren't in the constitution I also came to grips with the fact that women were equal in my religion? Either either I learned about why the legal doctrine of separate but equal had miserably failed in the US. And why didn't fly at church either. So I founded a group called Ordain women to advocate for Gender Justice in the Mormon Church as a result I found myself in front of the exact same tribunal beautiful ironically called a court of love a Sonia Johnson had thirty years prior despite all that praying done as a kid I chew was convicted of apostasy an excommunicated from the church. I was desperately trying to make better from the inside more than woman who is just excommunicated from the Church says she will not abandon her. 'cause Kate Kelly. For months her church leaders have been urging her to stop fighting and Sunday they decided to cast her from the church altogether in a letter her bishop wrote. You should be excommunicated for conduct contrary to the laws and order the truth. That's that's the same way. I feel about America now. I don't want all women to have to leave or move to Norway or New Zealand in order to experience equality I want to make our country and our constitution. Better right here right now. I found myself in the same position as a woman. I had thought about with fear and disdain my entire life my interest and her side of the story was peaked so I set out to finally meet her. I found her in the desert. Ironically after fighting for it so hard she now lives in one of the few states that still has not ratified the IRA Arizona she. She lives in a quiet house with many wind chimes blowing in the breeze. We did twenty four. You're arrestable civil disobedience actions in front of the White House in a period of a couple of years we didn't want to three and arrested got arrested and I said we got to get the word out to women that are worth this that they are worse than that. This is what women do do. Women are strong turns out the woman I was taught to fear. Felt the same way I did. And she was actually fighting the exact same fight. I was USC generations earlier. We did all these things. He change ourselves to the White House fence. We sat in a White House driveway. We stopped traffic. Pick any number of times. We changed the door shut on. Republican headquarters is just around the block. You know from the quiet we. We knelt in the street and sang and And some of these things when you're do civil disobedience you're supposed to you get every teach everybody so that won't be problem. They neighbors so pleased with themselves. You know there's what the women's movement should coulda done all the way along. We knew that. Give them to do this thing and see what they're made of that. They're not afraid that they that they have the such love. Damnit they can't be stopped so all these women. Many of those women turned up within future actions but they never they were never forget. Dan I into those granddaughters. You know what I always set sat in the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue for forty five minutes and we stopped traffic. There were many many of us and we sang and we sang. And I wasn't afraid wasn't afraid women are so aw frayed how'd you get over it in old. Eleanor Roosevelt said. Fear is our biggest with them as biggest problem and what we need we need to do is do something that scares us every day. If you've got a chance to do something that scares you do. Well it do it. At the peak of the fight in the nineteen seventies there were literally hundreds of thousands of people marching in the streets support the year but when the first attempt to ratify the era died in nineteen eighty to many of the hopes. Sonia generation died with it the gigantic nationwide well organized machine. That was the women's movement in the nineteen seventies lost steam and scattered into disparate paths instead of marching being in unison. But as it would turn out the er a didn't actually die. It would just lay dormant for a couple of decades before rising rising from the ashes like a fierce phoenix right when massive women's marches were taking place all over the country again and around the world every time we come to equality we always parse words. Every time we're talking about someone has the same rights as someone else. We're not talking about special rights lights here. We're talking about equal rights and as I said before the trajectory is moving in the right direction. And it's moving in the right direction because every time I have been in a discussion about equality whether it's about racism whether it's about sexism whether it's about homophobia every time we always parse words about whether or not someone has the right to equality. That's Senator Pat Spearman. She's an incredible queer preacher and legislator who helped raise the era IRA from the dead in two thousand seventeen and get it ratified in Nevada. The first state to do so in almost forty years due to the hard work of women like Senator Senator spearmint all around the country who never gave up hope. There is a major possibility that the last state necessary to finally ratify the equal rights amendment. We'll do so by the end of January twenty twenty. That's this month. We are currently living in an era of modern constitutional history. Can you grasp the magnitude of what we are on. The cusp of. It is no exaggeration to say this would impact every person living in this country the way. Hey that women are. Viewed under the law would significantly change when any student picks up their pocket constitution class to study more about our country. They will read about gender equality. Can you imagine the era is not a stodgy remnant. A feminist movements passed. It could be the key to unlocking being a world of opportunity for Gender Equity Establishing gender equality as an American value once and for all to me the importance importance of the equal rights amendment is almost more the symbolism of it. You know two hundred years after our country was founded. Finally we say women are real human beings women are equal them and to me. That's that's the significance of equal rights.

"In nineteen eighty two the era basically died after gigantic nationwide battle over Equality Anti era conservatives concluding Mormons fighting against it were successful. The deadline Congress put in for passing. The amendment came and Went Yari. Ratification tragically fell just three states short. And I think a lot of ice in my generation we just sorta gave up that point. Why why continue to fight for something? That's dead that's where my part in this story. Accelerates in one thousand nine hundred to I was just two years old growing up I felt like my household function differently than the norm. My mom worked outside the home and my dad shared a pretty equal role role in parenting. I felt torn between what my community believed in and what I was experiencing firsthand. I wanted to be a lawyer just like my mom when I was a kid. The only whisperings I heard about the equal rights amendment were in connection with the character I saw as a villain a a woman who had strayed so far from the church that she had been excommunicated. She was the opposite of my grandma and refused to fight against the era even though she was told to do so by her male Mormon leaders she became a national figure in the movement after she had a showdown down with Utah. Senator Orrin Hatch in Congress who led the opposition her name Sonya Johnson was used as a kind of cautionary tale against women in my community and the church excommunicated one of the most outspoken Mormon feminists so new Johnson interested in in stopping me and stopping this organization called Mormons for era there. They want us to leave them alone out there and let them get the killed and and we can't do that you know. I prayed to never become so rebellious that I would distance myself from God like she did instead. I did everything I was supposed to do. I went to Brigham Young University and went on a Mormon mission to Spain and I married a man in the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City still and never lost the ambition. I'd had since childhood and I decided to go to law school. I hoped my piety and other areas would make up for my sinful higher education just as it was for my mom law. School was a turning point for me. I took a class on constitutional history and I realized for the first time that women really weren't included in fact we were actively left out of our own constitution. And that's when and I learned that the ER. I actually does matter. I'm a lawyer and also a podcast stor and have lots of side hustles juggling. All this this can get confusing.

"As the struggle for equal rights amendment amendment traces. Back to one thousand nine hundred ninety three when feminist Alice Paul wrote the words that became era equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or bridged edged by the United States or any state on account of sex watched. Never if you could change one thing about the constitution what would it be. I will off. Election results from Virginia could determine whether a new amendment will be added to the constitution. Democrats L. Control the entire state legislature Virginia's poised to become the thirty eighth state to ratify the equal rights amendment. ooh I'm Kelly. Human Rights Attorney feminist and advocate for for the equal rights amendment and this is ordinary equality over the next twelve. We're GONNA be talking about the birth death and recent Resurrection Direction of Equal Rights Amendment. It's a story that includes quote Unquote Founding Fathers An army of Mormon housewives a cunning Moyer in housewife live clothing a disgruntled Collagen bent on vindication heroic. Black Queer preacher from Nevada and much much more first. Thanks I though what is the rights amendment. It's a simple three clause amendment to the Constitution that was written in one thousand nine hundred eighty three right. After mostly mostly white women got the vote. The main two clauses read section one equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or bridge by the United it states or by any state on account of sex section to the Congress shall have the power to enforce by appropriate legislation the provisions agents of this article the third clause sets a two year enactment period that gives the federal and state governments time to review and get rid of any sexist laws. That are still on the books. You might be thinking something like happy lists. Let's get this past good news. It already did pass in Congress in Nineteen seventy-two bad news amendments also have to be ratified by three quarters of the US states in order to be added to the constitution and that that hasn't happened yet. You may also be thinking wait. Women aren't covered in our Constitution doesn't gender-equality already exist. Spoiler alert no gender equality does not exist in our country yet not from a constitutional perspective and not in our society. -ociety either. We've still got a long long way to go for many people. That realization is startling for others. It sounds about right some fear the passing the era would unalterably shift. What they call our American way of life I know that paradigm well? That's how I grew up so before we get to the bigger. Er a story. Let me tell you mine. And why and how my perspective has shifted. When I was a kid I learned the song you heard? At the top of the show the church I was raised Mormon and it was part of a larger lesson I was taught about gender roles as females. We are explicitly told the our place it was only in the home as one of my professors at Brigham Young University. Which Mormons call the Lord's University? Valerie Hudson put it the restored. Gospel teaches just me. I will be married forever and I will have children forever. The life of being a woman married to my sweetheart and having children forever is the life that will bring me the fullest joy. But my mom was a lawyer and my parents encouraged me to be anything I wanted to be and so my trajectory didn't follow the normal Mormon Lady attornal baby factory type script at all. I grew up in a small town in Oregon in a very three tight knit religious community. My parents were converts the Church and raise me a devout Mormon mormonism like all religions teaches that there are good people title and there are bad people. The good people were pious Mormons who adhered to a very strict doctrine including traditional gender roles. Bad people straight from those heart set rules so in Mormon Culture and doctrine at the time women were taught and and commanded to be mothers to be wives and not to seek outside employment. That's my mom Donna. Unless they made exceptions for for example. If your husband died or something tragic happened in your family or your husband couldn't work or something. There were exceptions but for the most part girls were raised in Mormon culture to be mothers and in fact I remember a doctrine being taught the day would come that only Mormon women would desire to have children on the birth. We were the only ones so therefore we were going to save the human race. Mormon women we're going to save the human race from extinction stink tion and so it was taught as a very important very sacred function to become a mother and to focus all of your the energy on that as with all human stories. Mine doesn't really start with me to get better context. I turn to the ultimate expert on my life my mother. She's the best my name is Donna. Kelley I am a mother a wife a prosecuting prosecuting attorney and cookbook author food blogger. Mom would you say your favorite thing or your number. One favorite thing is getting roped into careered project kind of like holding a tiger by the tail. Kelly's mom my mom was born. In nineteen fifty five. She grew up in Tucson Arizona. Her family was of Mormon stock but growing up. They weren't really very active in the church but she was baptized at age. Twelve a mormon. I always knew that I would go to college. And I knew that I would have some type of career but I was is a little confused about how it would fit that into my primary role of being a mother and saving the human race from extinction. She went to the University of Arizona Arizona and majored in journalism and English literature before deciding she wanted to go to law school and I wanted to either work for the New York Times or The Washington Post or some important leading publication that really spent time covering the law and then I met Jim Kelly and everything changed. At at that point my parents got married and the Mormon missionaries found and converted them. My Dad was baptized. Mormon to both of my parents took the Elsa all sat and applied to law school. My mom would hire an only she got in there. Were about twelve women out of three hundred in my class. Yes I mean. It was very challenging. It was very exciting. I loved law school. I loved challenging myself being able to think but there. There's always this kind of tension because I was supposed to go to law school an Excel at law school but I was also supposed to be home cooking dinner and cleaning my house else and starting to have children my grandmother. When we were first married she would come to town occasionally and visit and I would you know jump up in the morning and run off to school? Aw She would still be there and then later that night she said to me if you don't start cooking his breakfast for him and making his lunch and in doing his laundry and doing all these things you're going to lose him as a husband. I mean that was a very real thing she was. She was not saying it to be mean she was like really worried about me. That marriage would not survive. Because I was doing these other things and not catering to him and my response was I I. I think he should make me breakfast and lunch. Because I'm going to law school and it's very challenging and hard and that she you just had the shocked look on her face because that would never never in a million years occurred to her. That has been would do those kind of things for his wife. Mom was caught between career ambitions and the expectations of her community. Her response was to try and do it all that included walking the Party line when it came to the er a she actually wrote an anti era op. Ed For her college newspaper. I don't remember writing it. I'm not at all surprised that coded because in those in those times I was trying really hard to carry the Party line of the Mormon Church and save the human race. My grandmother was also actively fighting against the era similar to many Mormon women at the time she received a calling. It's literally understood to be a job assigned directly from God to publicly speak out against the era whenever necessary but for my mom things started to shift and law school. The every class that I took women were treated differently by the law in the early nineteen seventies women. Couldn't do things like have have a credit card. Without their husbands approval women couldn't control their reproductive rights. Even things like if you wanted to get your tubes Todd God or if you wanted to get certain types of birth control. You could not do that without your husband's permission. Let's not even talk about the economic inequalities inequalities that existed in in those days I mean the law sanctioned discrimination against women. It wasn't just the the olden days of the early United States of America where women were property and could not sign contracts could not have their own bank accounts salute kind of things. It wasn't that it was too. You know it was then it was happening. It was the nineteen seventies and many of those things still existed in the law the law sanctioned them the law allowed them and so I began to realize that the equal rights amendment would help fix fix those inequalities you know sorta like Brown versus the board of Education sometimes. The law sets the standard and then society changes to make things right to right the ship right. And that's what I believed needed to start happening with. Equal Rights Amendment is that the law needed to correct itself first and then society would.

"Offices and I feel fresh after two weeks a fortnight in the emerald dial crossed the pond <hes> I was in Northern Ireland for about week and a half but right after the open Meena couple friends tour down the coast from port rush to Dublin played about nine rounds of golf five days. I was not invited you were not know there's really around that the worst part about that three so very much room for a fourth but back played a bunch of courses that start with Port yes port played port Stewart Port Mark <hes> did not play portrush but certainly watched some good golf played there. What was your favorite wandered around there? Ports my favorite of the ports <hes> Port Stewart was very cool poured stewards just down the coast from port rush and the first Ti- there you look out on this massive massive like fescue Dune and then over your right is the see. You're just read in town. I mean I'd never been to the U._K.. At all so seeing the way the golf courses just fit into these little towns. You can basically just walked to the downtown from these. You know world class. Golf courses was really really cool. I mean I've heard people describe it before but definitely living it was a new experience. You got your passport. Glad you got on used a little bit. You texted me mid trip and you said you were Kinda. Working through some things yeah yeah I mean you know I said between you and me. I may not be someone that should be playing blades at this point in my ball striking career. That's not good yeah. No the things weren't quite where they needed to be in terms of dialing in the irons. You really need to control your golf ball over there. You need to be top level. I was not there so yeah. We don't need to get to deep into my actual golf game but <hes> let's you say I enjoyed the creativity of the shot making over there but I was not able to make the shots that I wanted to all the time. There's always another time <hes> on. Would we go. We got five topics number. One has everything to do with Brooks. KEPCO ABC Brooks won the W._g._C. Fedex Saint Jude Sunday forget how he did it or who he beat he won. That's a matter of fact it is his seventh to her win. Six of those have come in the last three years for them have been major championships. He's number one in the world. He's going finish this year at that spot unless someone goes crazy and so I asked you to think about Gulf history are we living in the Brooks kept get era yeah. We are undeniably undoubtedly. I think everyone still getting used to it. I think Brooks kept guy is even still getting used to it. I mean listen what he said in his press conference after his win. Yesterday he said you know it's always nice to squeak out a victory over probably the best player right now the best player referring to rory mcilroy who's clearly. I'm not the best player right now. We'll get more rory in a second but there was no doubt who the best player on the golf course was yesterday once he made his Birdie Putt in rory missed on number three there was just this sense of inevitability <unk> gravity. Whatever it is that happens when kept good takes control of Golf Tournament? Usually we see that a major championship in this case it was a flat W._G._C.. <hes> but it really underscored the sense is that when this guy is on he is the king all right so then for the twenty tense. Let's talk about the Erez I mean I think there are three yeah. I don't know Oh man. I know what you think this entire conversation yes. The beginning of the twenty tens. The first era is the tiger hangover your is tiger for one is still dealing with the wake of his infidelity to he's not playing as well. He's got all these injuries so then the second era is the Rory era rory takes over he wins four majors in in. I don't know five years a bunch of other winds on both tours the European tour and the P._G._A.. Tour he is number one player in the world. He is the second coming they say of Tiger Woods whether yeah that's true it's probably not then the third era I think is the Brooks era in which I mean there is no Jason Day speed or D._J.. Iran what do you think well. I mean it's funny. I looked at this 'cause I was thinking about in article. All this happens sometimes get deepened articles that never quite make it to fruition but this whole idea of you know this game of thrones were there is a power vacuum or board guys were battling for that top spot and not just the world number-one ranking but truly truly like golf's heavyweight title belt the championship belt. You're not just number one by name but you are undoubtedly the best player in the world by any definition and it went around and around and around in this post Tiger Tiger Post Rory Era D._J.. J._T. Speed Jason Day there. I mean they're all these guys that were rotating around. Justin rose got in there kept. I got in there for a second <hes>. It's not until recently we probably at the P._G._A.. <hes> that Brooks really staked his claim to the throne. None of those dudes had it for more than one year now speed is one three majors was makes you think there is an era their speed era <hes> what he won on them during an incredible Twenty fifteen year yeah twenty sixteen he didn't he didn't play well in twenty sixteen. He won a couple times on tour but that was it twenty seventeen. He gets his British open and his anything since like D._J.. A._J.. He wins at oakmont. Here's a great year after that then he doesn't win for a little bit of so Jason Day has like seven wins and twenty five starts really hot for one year fades after that Justin rose gets the number one wins onto a couple of times fades after that these things they don't. There's no sustenance yeah well. I think I mean you know you said if you look at these quote Unquote Erez if you look at deejays era you need signature wins to define these things and the W._g._C.'s we have learned they you know for for all the the might the strength of field they cannot carry a player's legacy there to there to flat. They're good window-dressing in for Brooks kept good. That's exactly what this is. This is what this is best is non major win right. It's over strong field limited field but still really strong field. It's over Rory mcilroy the number three plan player in the world but it really supports his body of work in an important way for how we look at Kapka and I think that that made yesterday huge for him numb number one in the field in strokes gain putting by the way yesterday and for the week he gained what almost ten strokes putting this week so you know watching him. It just looks like oh he's not missing missing a shot in sitting in the middle of every green managing his way around now yesterday he got up and down all seven times that he missed the green <hes> he gained almost three strokes on the field putting on a day where he was already right by the lead so I mean he's is just very very good all right Sean Rory mcilroy the other piece of this final pairing at yesterday in Memphis. What do we make rory mcilroy because I mean look he had another chance here? He was in another final pairing. He came out flat for most of the day he was the only player in the field without a Birdie he eventually made one. He shoots one over in the final round and just gets steamrolled <unk> by Brooks kept his playing partner. What what does this? Where does this put rory? What do we make of him? Where is he right now? In his career. I'm going to answer that question with the question and that is if he was anyone but Maury Maccarone in this scenario scenario this scenario being that Brooks Kapka is in the final group with you. He's trailing by want. He comes out and plays a lot better off than you. He wins the tournament if it was anyone but rory mcilroy do we make much of it to make much of anything that happened yesterday if D._J.. D._J. is in that position and he loses to the number one player in the world. Is it a gigantic issue. If it's Jon Rahm do we make a big deal but we make a deal about it. We make a but had not a significant deal but since its rory we make a huge deal about it and we kind of wrap up his non playoff season with <hes> it was pretty good. You want a couple times but remember you know the the final piece of the puzzle. Was You getting your butt kicked by Brooks. KEPCO RORY is caught in a brutal spot lot of expectation where we have incredibly high expectations for the guy our expectations couldn't be higher or waiting for him to Kinda like check the boxes off in his career. He's lived up to a lot of them. He's even like shined like been Canada this year where we didn't expect back into but now we expect him to do it everywhere. That's somewhat unfair. I I know that the guy has kind of been anti clutch so to say what he needed it mostly but I think is a little bit of wreath. See bias that we're just diving into. Yes you're giving him. The benefit of the doubt I mean but I do think that I don't think this is a random occurrence because we've seen enough room now recently to show that when he's in these moments where he's just pressing he's trying too part. He has not been playing well in those instances in his final round pairings being near the lead a major showing up at portrush in this incredibly high pressure situation and you know shooting seventy nine the guy plays. Please really well when loose and yesterday I don't I mean certainly watching the round. It felt like from Roy's perspective. It must feel like playing with Brooks. You cannot make a mistake and when rory looks like he's playing to not make a mistake. That's that's when he looks like he's missing this extra element so that's when you know kept good missed a couple of fairways early on but then he gets up and down number three he makes his Birdie Putt and then rory follows by missing from three or four feet <hes> and and then just felt like this is kept his time rory just can't measure up in a court we know he can we've seen it. We saw him shoot sixty one in the final round in Canada we saw him even almost make the cut after shooting seventy nine in the first round of the open championship and he's still finished eighty four but there's something missing for the guy when he gets tight that that swing the timing if maybe there's too much timing required I dunno or or east to self aware there's something has happened in definitely weird and you have to look at the statistics a little bit for the entire season to kind of make it even weirder because these expectations you expect them to play so well. He's played fifteen tour events in two thousand nineteen fifteen his fashion the top ten and twelve loss yeah that's insane. Insane eighty percent of his tour events and Twenty fifteen have been top tents two of them victories one at the arguably the biggest non major tournament yes with Roy Right now. I think we need to draw a line in the sand Dan kind of like D._J.. Right now where there's old rory and there's new Rory old rory was this kid insanely talented. One of the greatest swings probably the game ever seen. He's probably just as talented as he was then China's he is now but there's just something missing well. He talks about it too right. He was talking about this the other day where he was looking back at the sixteen year old him that shot sixty two portrush he was saying you know. I was probably more confident than than I am now. I wish we get some pets back in looking in golf. I think self-awareness can be the enemy of success at this pro level if your self awareness is anything besides you know kept goes which is basically blake on the man. I'm the Best Golfer in the world. If you're if you're self perception is anything besides that than it probably damaging rory's one of the most self-aware guys out there and it may be to his detriment. I'm a little worried about that confidence because I mean him brooks ever like you look at the last five six years or so they've kind of like had this little not even less three or four years. They've had this like proxy war where they've both been really really good but they've never really gone against each other right right like rory won. His majors in one has tournaments in Brooklyn Brooks when his majors in his tournaments rory was missing the cut in a lot of Brooks's major victories. They've never really faced off in an actual stroke by they faced off at Hazeltine. Roy One cut the best of Brooks but they haven't done it together. I think this is just like this is what we talked about early the change in a guard this is the brooks era like this is how you submit yourself. Can you imagine a bigger flex on rory than for Brooks to make everybody worried about if he's showing up to the course to go out there scramble your way to a couple Pars and then shoot five hundred on the last fifteen holes he's even he's all the while he's talking with Rory. He saying you know good shot their kids so Roy has is to respond to Brooks and Brooks's niceness meanwhile. He's getting run over. He's getting run over at the strangest thing to me is that Roy was still asserting himself there. Was this like Macho part to rory where he was smashing it past Kepco Giga. He hit it on one hole where they both ripped driver rory hit thirty two yards past brooks clearly he still has that upper year so it's not like this traditional thing of just getting out muscled. You know it's not like when tiger wood just takeover back in the day and just hit forty yards passes competitors Roy was actually hitting it passed him but it's more like kept good just seems to decide okay..
