"As far as Easter Island to the east on going all the way west to Australia and New Zealand and what will be listening to musicians from Papua New Guinea and Australia and New Zealand will also be hearing musicians from other parts of the world. Who look to the South Pacific for for sounds for inspiration. And we'll begin with a posthumous album by the Australian, the native Australian musician who was known as Gurukul. He He was a blind singer songwriter, multi instrumentalist, mostly guitarist. Who came to fame with kind of hybrid Aboriginal folk rock band in Australia called you three Indy but who had real commercial success with the Syrians of his own solo records. Now, most of those Tended towards Ah, lighter pop sound. But this posthumous album, which he apparently had been working on for several years, is really quite different and and remarkable. It's called Jaromir e Child of the Rainbow, and it's orchestral music done with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, depending on the track. And also featuring a virtual choir of indigenous voices. They're all actually Gorham ALS own layered one atop the other, apparently Peaceful start with is called Goku, which means fresh water and it's sung in one of the many indigenous languages of Australia. The musical language reminds me of Philip Glass, and so will pair this piece by Gore a mole with an excerpt from Philip Glass's Australian themed work. Called voices for organ to didgeridoos and in his original form a narrator who does not appear on the recording. But the didgeridoos here are played by Mark Atkins, who is Pretty well known player of this native Australian instrument and Philip Glass. His own long time music director Michael Reese Man plays the organ will hear the opening of Philip Glass's voices, but first Here's this piece called Got poo or fresh water by the late Australian musician and composer named Gore a mole..
Modulating a Gatekeeper of Cellular Metabolism to Treat a Range of Diseases
"Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. We're going to talk about navato r- its platform technology and the wide range of diseases that this has the potential to target. Perhaps we can start with and torque one and its role in cellular metabolism. What does it do so amtrak one is fascinating system. And it's something really that people should learn more about the impacts. Every cell their body explains a lot of how our bodies grow disease takes place in also where very important therapeutics may be coming from in the future but Amtrak one plays a really interesting function in the cell in that it serves the purpose of constantly surveying the availability of key components that the cell needs in order to carry out its work and so each celebrate body is constantly serving the local environment to see are there a sufficient supply of amino acids particularly the essential amino acids. The come in our diet is there. Unavailability of glucose or energy or oxygen are the local conditions right in terms of of a concentration of things like salts to all of these things are integrated. Torp one to let the cell do what needs to do when the conditions are right. It also takes input from growth factors. That are the sort of circulating factors in our body like insulin that tell the cell. How much of that to do. And so anytime it cells growing or any time. it's making a product. It needs permission if you owe from One to carry that out and it's a constantly carrying a playing that role and under conditions. Where you're a growing child or an embryo for example and you need to carry out a lot of synthesis. Things like proteins lipids nucleic acids in order to drive your your body to grow amtrak. One needs to be on in order to support that work as we get older. We need less of That ongoing production things and this is where the the control the daily control. I really becomes important and contribute to policy in the setting of some diseases. There's a second mta complex amtrak to what's the relationship between these two complexes. Yeah so so. They share of a couple of things. The main one is that they share an enzyme called tour which is also known as the target of rapamycin. Rapamycin is a small molecule. Rather large small molecule made by An organism that was discovered on easter island many years ago and found that this particular compound could suppress uplift ration- of certain types of cells under certain conditions and it turns out that the tour enzyme or target of rapamycin inside which carries out the process. Uplinked phosphate groups onto other proteins was actually what the rapamycin binding to and And so tour as kind. A certain enzyme is shared. By the two complexes it was much later that it was discovered that there are too complex is actually there may be more that incorporate this enzyme and so Torque one as a complex is determined when another protein called raptor binds to talk to 'em tour and forms a complex that the carries out the functions that i just mentioned amtrak to is is formed when it binds a protein called rector instead of raptor. I'm the case of amtrak. One for richard drives the formation of the complex to and Directs the activity of the tour kindness toward different substrates and talk one carries out that stuff i mentioned earlier about controlling the availability of integrating the availability of nutrients with the production of of things like lipids and proteins. Amtrak to had carries out much more pedestrian type of a role which is to participate in signaling pathways such as the insulin signaling pathway. But it has a very important role in supporting those pathways for example maintenance of site of skeletal functions insulin action self-liberation. And so if you disrupt mta to you'll have effects on those things whereas controlling torque one really gets about this business of of marrying the availability of nutrients in the need for new trance with the production of new materials by the self rapamycin been used for
Why Some Easter Island Statues Are Where They Are
"The statues on Easter Island are among the most mysterious objects made by humans. We still don't know how they were moved why they were placed particular sites around the island and why they were made in the first place. Now, researchers think they have at least some answers because a new analysis fines that the statues are located near sources of freshwater. The study appears in the Journal plus. It's believed that the residents of revenue the indigenous name for Easter Island began constructing these carvings in the thirteenth century the statues called Moai which sit upon stone platforms called who are the very definition of monumental, most way between twenty and thirty tonnes and of the thousand on the island about four hundred have been moved from the quarry where they originated and placed on all who located elsewhere. But those locations aren't necessarily everywhere there in some places and not others. And the questions that we started to ask ourselves was, why do we find these out who and why some places on the landscape but not others Carl, Lipo an anthropologist at Binghamton University in Central, New, York he says that most of these sculptures are found along the coast but some are inland and they're not necessarily in obvious places. For example, we don't find out WHO and statues located on the tops of hills places that we might expect to find them if. These things were symbolic representing ancestors where you wanted to show off to the world or the itself, the fruits of your creation these statue. So the statues are more than just towering talismans to be admired from afar indeed lippo and his colleagues noted that people spent most of their time living in working around these sites which made the researchers thing that the statues might be located near a valuable resource. So the question was what resource was water freshwater marine resources. Or Division places, which of those which combination of those best explained locations of who on the landscape and their statistical analyses pointed toward potable water, which Lippo says made sense every single time we found a big source of freshwater. There would be a statue in and out who emmy facilities over and over and over again in places where we didn't find freshwater, we didn't find statues and I hope now that doesn't mean that the sculpture served as markers like sign saying. Here. But rather that the community themselves were connected to those resources and thus their investment in statues was done around that resource because these locations had the resources that they needed survive. It seems that many of these massive sculptures are where they are for totally pragmatic reasons we'll build here because here is where we wanna be.

Truck Crashes Into an Easter Island Statue
"This one of Easter island's world famous moai statues has been destroyed in an accident the man was arrested earlier this week after his truck crashed into one of the stone figures bad badly damaging it and the platform it was perched on local authorities think the accident was caused by brake failure that caused the truck with no one in it to roll
"Thompson has been in examining oral histories the records of Captain Cook and the accomplishments of the Polynesian voyaging society. All to investigate what it can tell us about how we view the world. Today she pieces together the navigation puzzle of sailors and settlers in her book. See People Christina. Welcome thanks for having me. So when when we think of Polynesia talk about how big it is and what it has in common culturally so Polynesia is the area that is inside of this triangle we'll formed by Hawaii in the North New Zealand in the southwest and Easter Island in the southeast. It's an area of about ten million square miles and it smack in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and it happens that all the people who live on the islands in this area which is the island's that people have heard of like Tahiti or saw more or maybe the mark cases they all share a common cultural heritage. They all speak related languages and they have a similar genetic. Ming up no Christina. You say ten million square miles and originally they were not populated by human beings at all so somehow people had to get there and there was no communication. People didn't right. They didn't have metal tools. They didn't have navigational devices that I can imagine. Can you just kind of paint a picture to the best that we can. We're were there caravans of canoes just going out into the unknown C or how did these islands become populated originally well. I think one thing we don't know is how many canoes necessarily sailed together but basically the idea is that you know some thousands of years ago over in what sometimes people call the island nursery Sirri of Southeast Asia in the islands around the Philippines and Indonesia and stuff people developed an outrigger. which is this thing that sticks out from the side of the canoe to keep it balanced to keep it from from tipping over and with the development of the outrigger people started to be able to make some longer distance? Voyages and the canoes the Polynesian sailed in were like Catamaran's they had to halls else and they were stable and they could carry a load of people and animals and so they started making longer and longer voyages. There's some again some thousands of years ago from this western side of the Pacific out further and further and further into the mid Pacific. But it must have been hit or miss because they didn't have maps. They didn't have radar. They didn't know where the islands were if they were islands. Do you think they were just kind of going toward the sunset and hoping to hit land now the sunrise is actually but they obviously looking for islands and the islands are what they call inter visible. You can see one from. I'm the other in the Western Pacific. A lot of them are. There's a big leap when they get past that point and they start to sail out to islands that you can't see so they're probably exploring hiring and looking for them they really were amazing navigators. They weren't sailing blinds. They understood how to go to one place and sail back from that place after. Remember where that place was and things like that. They must have been exploring but we don't really know how they found islands like the end of Hawaii. Which is the islands of Hawaii are very isolated in the North Pacific? How did they find them who knows because we have no written history people? Just build a raft. That was kind of like one of those early outriggers Imagining how they might have done it and just without knowing if they did it prove that they could have done it like those. Expeditions seemed to be part of science right right so the the earliest one was was to Harles kon-tiki raft which he he allowed to drift basically from the coast of South America and ended up in the middle of the Pacific on the tomatoes. And that was an kind of an early experiment in this vain but then in the nineteen seventies in Hawaii some people got together and decided to try and build a true replica vessel so a copy of what they imagined. An ancient Polynesian voyaging canoe would been like and they decided to try and sale it from Hawaii to Tahiti and back again and that was the beginning of what what is really kind of an experimental voyaging movement in Hawaii. And what was that expedition called. The ship was called Hokule'a it Okla has made an around the world voyage now but that was in two thousand sixteen I guess but between Nineteen Seventy in two thousand sixteen they have made voyages absolutely everywhere. They sailed to to Easter to New Zealand. All around the Pacific to the point is to prove that it could be done yet to show the voyaging capacity of the Polynesians basically to show that non instrumental. Navigation vacation is really a thing and that people can go very long distances using it. You know that it's a real technique. You said they sailed it. Is it drifting with the wind and the tides is it with a sale or is it paddling they have a sale. They have a steering paddle but they sail. What were the very first contact with European society like in the Polynesian World? Some of them were violent. Some of them were not. We don't have any idea what the markes ins thought of men Donya when he arrived Zeppelin we know record of it and what I mean. There's the record of the Spanish but we don't really know for sure what archaisms thought There was a little bit of that I think. In some cases there it was all in some cases there was fear in some cases. There was something that you might call. Greed greed Westerners. No on the part of the I mean I. I think that a lot of islanders actually looked at these ships once they realized kind of what was going on and who these people were they actually wanted the ships. There are definitely stories of ambushes. Did they have some kind of A religious context again in the case of the conquistadors from Spain I mean in their religion I understand. It was on this certain year. A man on a horse you know was going to come and on that certain year the man on the horse with the beard came just like their scripture said and they disfigured this must be divided and they laid down their weapons and was there any kind of dimension of that local cultural religion with the arrival of the first Europeans pins or was it the opposite The story of Cook's arrival in Hawaii is kind of like that story that he arrived during a festival in he seemed to be the embodiment of the deity. Who was being celebrated in the Festival because switches to happen that he arrived at that time? I think that that added to the confusion of cooks experience. AGREEANCE cook was killed in Hawaii. That was where he died. And it was not long after this encounter during this festival period and I think it added to sort of chaos and confusion that he had Iraq during that a period. This is travel with. Rick Steves talking with Christina Thompson. Her book is see people the Puzzle of Polynesia and we're talking about early explorers of the Pacific both before the Europeans arrived and after so captain cook arrived and they thought. Oh It's a festival in here comes God and then things went sour and they killed killed them. Tell us a little more about that. So what happened. Is that Cook. He went up north to Alaska and then or the Northwest Pacific and then he came down and when he came down he was looking for a place to rest his crew and he sort of hit the island of Maui and then he went east so he sailed all the way around the big island before he found a place to come to rest his crew and that meant that he was sailing in his ship all the way slowly because against the wind all the way around the big island for quite a while and so when he arrived the legend of Lono the God that he sort of seemed to be representing was that Leno passed around the island in the same. I'm way he was represented as carrying a staff with White Tapa cloth on it which is sort of like the the ship to mass in their sales so just a lot of things lined up kind of strangely initially and then what happened was he. They went through all this festival these festivals and celebrations and then Cook sailed away and that should have been the end of it he should have just sailed away that would be fine but his mast broke just offshore and he had to return and when he returned he wasn't supposed to return according to the legends. He wasn't supposed to come back until the next year. So people were confused by that and then there was an altercation. He died in the clash not long after he returned.
Meet The Credit Card Obsessives Who Travel The World On Points
"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply now we have a story of people who are in credit card points as though it were a game they go for sign up bonuses and point multipliers and balance transfers but it turns out you can lose the credit card points game to here's Dr Yes roffe on it's seven o'clock on Tuesday night and in a crowded Bar in downtown Brooklyn on twenty or so people have gathered to sip Craft Beers Niblett appetizers men talk about credit cards. I've taken out over forty six credit cards writes in five years and earn two point six million Miles Justin sign up bonuses. Janus Lynch is irregular at the reach for the Miles Mita. It's a gathering of travel hackers. There's an deal optimize. IRS will meet once a month to trade strategies for maximising credit card rewards for her. Earning points is a kind of sport. I just came back this morning. From Easter. Island Lhasa Got Twenty Six thousand points from that plus because American Airlines was late for flight big any another seventy five hundred points nights so I'm not sure where I came out but I think I may have been paid to go to Easter Island. Uruguay and Lynch isn't alone nearly ninety percent of all the money spent on credit it cards last year was on rewards cards and as points have become more popular so to have websites like million mile secrets and the points guy which helped consumers game the point system meanwhile card issuers have been pushing more and more generous rewards all in an effort to entice customers to borrow and spend more but for people like Janus Lintz. It's just one more way to beat the credit card companies at their own game so I even make money paying taxes. I made quite a few thous in capital gains taxes. I spoke with one person who opened a credit card and immediately bought three thousand dollars worth of Amazon Gift Cards. Just has to qualify for the sign up bonus another person filled up there garage with blenders to take advantage of a promotion offering extra points on appliances one dad he even even try to enroll his newborn in a frequent flyer program only to be told that you have to be at least two years old to start earning miles and of course the ultimate badge of honor among this crowd is the outlandish travel story like the guy who flew first class to Dubai for less than twenty dollars and then there's Stephen Kozelsk Hausky. He used his points to visit every single country on earth before he turned forty the last one on his list Syria on one day notice I was was able to be on a plane to Beirut in Damascus by nightfall points can open the door to extraordinary experiences if you have the time and the discipline but one survey found that nearly sixty percent of the people who have rewards cards don't pay off their balances each month. They're so focused on the rewards aspect of it that got a lot of time. I think they just look past the potential downside. Ron Struggle is a certified financial planner. He sees clients. Come in all the time excited about all the points they're going to get with their new credit credit card. Believe him pull that card out and they should to me. You know like they're bragging about it but many of those same clients wound up racking up charges incentivized by that little little hit of dopamine they get each time they earn a point. That's what happened to jd Malone. He and his wife got sucked into a rewards program a few years ago after opening a Costco cashback card it changed the way we spent money from shopping for a brand new college and I mean one of the things that we talked about that was all hey if we buy this two thousand dollars couch yeah. That's that's Nice but if we buy this three thousand dollar couch we're going to get more cash back for that so we might as well by the three thousand thousand couch when they got their year end statement they found that they charge more than forty thousand dollars on that card and for all that they got about six hundred cashback it was painful. I mean to be honest. It was it was sickening. We were like this. This has to change. Jd and his wife enrolled in

Hey brain stuff lauren vogel balm hair someone gazing out at the ocean from the maine coast seized very different hues is them someone's squinting at the c. from sunny beach on a greek island but why does the ocean come in so many shades of blue of course ocean water is an inherently blue blue. It's clear that we see on the surface are the result of light being absorbed and reflected by the water itself. Whatever is floating and living in it and the surface of the ocean floor below low it a glass of water will of course appear clear as visible light passes through it with little to no obstruction but if a body of water is deep enough that light isn't reflected off the bottom it appears blue a basic physics explains why light from the sun is made up of spectrum of different wavelengths the longer wavelengths links appear to our eyes as the reds oranges while the shorter ones appear blue and green when the sun's light strikes the ocean it interacts with water molecules and can be either absorbed or scattered. If nothing is in the water except water the longer read portions of the spectrum tend to be absorbed by the water molecules whereas the light of those shorter wavelengths is more likely to go deep hit water molecules there and scatter back up towards her is making the ocean appear blue depth depth and the ocean bottom also influence whether surface appears a dusky dark blue as in parts of the atlantic or casts as safir like shimmer as in many tropical locations. We spoke nasa astronaut gene carl feldman. He said in greece the water is this beautiful turquoise color because the bottom is either white sand or white rocks fox. What happens is the light comes down and blue light gets down hits the bottom and reflects back up so you make this beautiful light blue color in the water darker sand rocks or other formations mean darker water. The color is further complicated by the fact that the ocean is rarely just water but is instead instead teeming with tiny plant and animal life plus suspended sediment or other natural orban made contaminants oshii offers monitor the oceans color the way that doctors read vital signs of their patients color seen on the ocean surface reflect.

It's when oceans become polluted runoff. The amount of phytoplankton can escalate late to unhealthy levels fellow painted feet on the pollutants flourish and them die sinking to the bottom to decompose process. The depletes oxygen from the water over the past fifty years oceans zones with depleted oxygen have more than quadrupled to an area roughly. The size of the european union part of the cause may be an increase increase in ocean temperature due to climate change since warmer water supports less oxygen in coastal areas phytoplankton blooms are suspected to be the cause title plankton may serve as the base of ocean food chain but as feldman says too much of a good thing is not a good thing on a map on feldman's office. Wall is a marker showing knowing where there's little human. Interference and ocean water is perhaps the clearest on the planet in this region off the coast of easter island in the southeast pacific ocean. The water is deep and remarkably clear due to its location in the middle of giant oceanic. I which is a large circular current. Its central location means. There's minimal mixing of ocean layers nutrients aren't pushed up from the deep bottom the purity of the water there coupled with that make the ocean appear a deeper indigo than perhaps anywhere else.

"I thought I did say this to Wilbad I said if you had to lose one or the other would you rather lose Notre Dom or the Lou because I said, I rather not lose the loop. Was looked at me like city. Prices will that's because I think I think, but I thought in the United States my first thought in the United States was the capitol building capital Bill Empire State Bill and the parts that will bond said the National Cathedral, and I said, that's so European to me that has a different. That's not an to me the capitol building is an American look. And he said well all the capitol buildings. Look like that. And I said, well is it possible? This was the first one and they're all pattern after that. So I think the capital US capitalist pattern again after the French. Yes. Yeah. I would. And the capitol building not just because of how it looks. But what it represents? I would pick the capitol building that that was my first choice and then the Empire State Bill in the states. I'd go capital. And it's interesting because we have to look at the split between church and state here. Because when you're seeing Notre Dom burning this week against all other. Yes. 'cause I really when I was thinking of their yesterday, we mmediately go to the Duomo in Florence. And you're trying to think about how how many times through history has say the dome cracked fallen been restored as we're trying to look forward with Notre Dom saying what is what is possible beyond what you've already saved. And what is the time line where that begins to feel normal because when you see something like that on TV it feels like you're thrown back. You know, forget maturity it feels like you're thrown back into the middle ages. That's I feel that that thing has lasted for long thought of Buckingham Palace. The Vatican would be another one, right? Maybe. Yeah. Raby? We're I think we talked about this. Last night. Notre Dom not only all the things that happened there throughout history. But it's a living breathing real church. Recently, one of the guys on CNN was talking about he's been based in France for years. His child was baptized their do real stuff, then I would walk. I mean for me, if you asked me about a religious edifice in the United States, I would have gone to Saint Patrick's because I grew up in New York, and I always of Saint Patrick's, and Saint Patrick's also looks those churches looked European because that's sure that's where came sure, but but the Taj shirt, certainly. By the way, have what you strugging. You know, what I struck that? Would you Alamo? Well, so much smaller. Not there's so much smaller than I thought it was going. Yeah. I did that with Rushmore Ono. You did it with the heads. Because you can't you can't get that close to them. They're just very shy. They're on sticks. The mazing thing is a stick heads. I was I could see I'd seen north by northwest. And I thought the run around and play on. By the way, Taj Mahal built between sixteen thirty two and sixteen fifty foot. It was but I thought it would be much newer than that. Then we'll and I were talking that the real antiquity is is in the cradle of civilization is in North Africa. Oh, jeez. Your or North Africa would have been built for the. So we payments we thought of the forbidden, but that's not a Bill Senate building right that we thought of the Forbidden City, but the Forbidden City is much newer than we thought it was much newer..

I thought it was. I mean, I thought it was built like in the seventeen hundreds of had no idea built go in twelve can look it up the Taj Mahal and that that was his right. I also did think about going to Europe like going to DisneyWorld, but I thought of the Taj Mahal, what would you think that's the first thing? I would think. Ben you after chatter big bet. Yeah.

"In terms of how much in a position you are to to score. So if a team is dominating the scoring chances than that that to me is is a signal of team. That can set up in the offense zone. Get the puck to where it needs to be an put a quality shot on that. So I pretty much discount almost everything else. And and look very favorably on scoring chance. Exactly what a scoring chance is. Because it's it's not always always a shot at that. It's it's not always a shot on net could be a mess, but it's any shot that originates in the slot or the so pretty much right? You know, the center aisle right in front of the goaltender you know, extending out to the face off top to almost almost looks like home plate. If you if you're looking from from the goaltenders point of view, and you know, that's that's historically been the place that you wanna get you wanna get your shots on that. And those are the ones that have the highest probability of good things happening. So yeah, I mean scoring chances for me are are right at the top and the and the more you have the better you like that team. Yeah. That's the thing about Carolina, they they generated the most high danger chances. So the most going chances right in the slot and the crease than any other team in hockey at even strength, and that's what makes them. So. Dangerous because they're they're really able to to get their their shots where they want to. Now, they're not good at converting them because they don't have as much skill as perhaps Washington does. But they certainly have the volume. That's interesting. Thank you, Neil. We'll talk to you soon. All right. Thanks again. Neil Greenberg Washington Post that was really interesting. Yeah. I I had no idea about that. I would have automats said shots on goal. And apparently, it's not the case are we will take a break. We will come back with news. We have lots of news, and we will don't worry. We will talk about the fire at at cathedral of note.

"You you should never let if you're the best team in hockey on paper Tampa Bay was you should never find yourself falling behind three. Oh, and you should be you know, you need to be able to make judgments to make it work. So while I agree with you. He's probably at fault. I I don't see him being fired. And anyway, penguins could go out for to write penguins out. Yeah penguins. You know, I I asked this question on Twitter before the playoffs started who when it was still up in the air who his opponent would be if they wanted Carolina Columbus or Pittsburgh. And a lot of people said Carolina because they seem to be the weaker team. But in my mind, it was Pittsburgh because they were hurt most of the year. And they're only gonna get healthier as a playoffs where on so they would probably be the most ideal first round opponent a lot of people do agree. But you know, as we're seeing now, I mean, they they're they just can't hang with the islanders. So let so let me put you in a position of being the president of NBC sports. You're gonna lose. I understand Tampa Bay doesn't have a national following. But in hockey, you're gonna lose your number one seeded team. The penguins are the team that everyone is familiar with because they have Sidney Crosby you're gonna Lewis these two teams in the first round. What are you thinking? If you're the you're the NBC, president sports. Well, you're you're you're not feeling great. And I'll take it even a step further. You know, the best team in the west. I think is Calgary don't count in the ribs. You know, if you're if you're if you have Calgary versus I don't know. Ron oh, Carolina Columbus or even Washington. I mean, that's not going to be a big ratings. I don't think there's any team in the west. That's going to really get you raise. Right, Calgary's, San Jose Vegas. Maybe you know, Nashville Winnipeg Saint Louis, Dallas, Colorado. I mean, the the even like ardent NHL fans would be hard pressed to name a star or two on any of those teams..

"And there I mean, they just haven't really been able to to get things going, and you know, their their best player. Nikita kucherov was was suspended for a game. You know? Stamkos doesn't have a goal. I mean, there's very few very few of their their heavy hitters that have been able to way thing including Britain point. I mean, so this is a team that relied a lot on. You know reminds me a lot of the two thousand nine two thousand ten capitals. Right. I mean, they just team went out in the first round but not swept yet. But also just so much so top heavy in terms of of talent. I mean, they just have Guber superstar talent up top stamkos kucherov etcetera. Greg goaltender, but it doesn't take much to to get a match. That's tough. And you gotta give you gotta give credit to Columbus. And John Tortorella. I mean, he knows how to coach a lot of people don't like him but likable, but he's really good at his job curse. Every third word out of his mouth these start saying and he's disdainful of every question. And I've I've regretted I almost regret asking him questions sometimes. But yeah, I mean gotta give credit to Columbus. And you know, Tampa Bay showing that in in in in the Stanley Cup playoffs. This should be no team ever. That's an overwhelming favorite to win it all because it never works out. I mean, there's so much parody in the NHL so fluky in terms of goalscoring. It wasn't. They were twenty points. Clear of they also weren't playing you gotta remember too. I mean Columba's a playoff team. They're not playing playoff teams every every night. And there's there's just a lot of a lot of changes that that go on you know, Columbus. Is one of those teams they said they will coach they they're not a team that you wanna see in the first round and in Tampa Bay got caught flat-footed a little bit. Yeah. They were they were great regular season team. But we've seen, you know, look you, and I have talked about this for years where the best team in hockey on paper can go and have a bad serious. And this is what's happening right now much better that in the NBA than in the NHL in going with the number one team. But okay. So let me make the NBA reference. Dwayne Casey was coach of the year last year at Toronto. His team was swept out of the playoffs by Cleveland swept out of the playoffs and they fired him. And it was very hard to stand up in his defense and say don't do that. If this guy, I don't know who the guy is Tampa Bay because hockey coaches tend to turn over more than basketball coaches if he gets swept out in the first round. He's fired. Right. No. He just signed an extension. He's not going anywhere. Really? They feel to me you get swept out in the first round that is a failure of organization coaching. Yes. And no, I mean, I guess it depends on the he's very well liked in Tampa. He just signed a contract extension in March. I think if he was fired he'd be hired like a two days later. I don't think is job is in jeopardy by any stretch of the imagination. But yeah, I mean, it's definitely it's a tactical. It's a tactical problem. We saw this with Bruce Boudreau a lot of the years when when Washington was having their flameouts that they that there's very little there's very little judgment. That's why you know last year with the capitals it made the Cup run. They made a lot defensive changes in the playoffs so much. So that they they were able to shut down every top six lines that they faced with the exception of Crosby's line during the Pittsburgh series. But you look back. No one had any success against washing. And I believe that Todd Reardon was at the at the forefront of making those defensive changes. And that's why they were so comfortable with him taking the role as head coach. So you know, what you see in the regular season doesn't always mean. What you you're going to see in the playoffs, and you know, guy like John Cooper is a very smart coach, but you have to make adjustments..

And he's your boy, and you always defend him because he's good with the media. But he's and we'll only response was don't you think Brooklyn's playing hearts? He didn't want to deal with it at all in the playoffs. The if you throw him out, there's a real chance there down. Oh tutorial. Do they call things like this differently in the playoffs? Then they would think well. Yes. And no, they do call it. They do call things differently. They are very reluctant to throw people out of gangs in the playoffs, obviously. Because there are repercussions for the next game. So they try not to do that. If they can avoid it. Which is why again, this is you know, what professional basketball players understand if I make it look good. They can't throw me on. That's exactly what I'm be.

The clippers play hard they play hard. That's the ones says about the nets. They play hard which again is both teams played hard. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. And then DeMarcus cousins goes out in the first two minutes, and he's done. That's right. He's got a rip quad. It's if you saw the if you saw not, no content. No, he went down. He went down. And then if he was walking to the locker room, you could see squad was not where it was supposed to be. That's his head. Yeah. It's not moved up. So he won't be playing anymore this year, but the pick-up into bogut who. One with that is a big big big pickup for the words. And that's why I think they'll be okay because bogut knows how to play defense, and he knows what they need. And how score does not have to score. So I think if if they lose him remember he hasn't played in the NBA for year. So he's been on Mormon sabbatical was down went down back to stray. But you know, you always. Always worry about a guy coming back plate for awhile. So if if he can handle, you know, the dollar now. A little bit deeper also older see when it makes sure you monitor their minutes. They never played back to back. That is true. So all this to say, I think sister when the series, but it's going to be harder without cousins there marching for era goes down a little bit. Yeah. And Kevin keeps getting eater fouled out down. Yeah. But don't worry. I've got this. I don't know that. I know you've already got now I see I went to bed after thirty one down in the second half. I've I figured they had this one and went to sleep. He would think so. Yeah. But you're right. I mean and professional experience. So, you know, you're right. I mean. Yeah. Durant's got it like come on. Now. You can't we'll has this ultimate faith and Durant that all these doing that. He's not really this guy. And even though all the evidence we Indicate Kate. these stupid technical the punch. I mean, Beverly is a net. Yeah. And Kevin Durant should not be concerned with him beverly's. Very smart. He's very good at this. He got west Westbrook. He get e gets guys professional irritant. Yes. He knows how to do it in a good player. So but they scored eighty five in the second half tone. That's that's just you can't give eighty five points. That's insane. Eighty five. Scott Brooks apologize. Defense, and it was another game that I paid attention to. We'll Vons insist Philly I watched the seventy crush I want to first half an into the third quarter at the beginning of the third quarter. They were running away from the nets. But there was one play. And I I have a problem with this Jillian bead took his left elbow. He clocked him and hit yard alley. Optum deliberately in the Jong and not him down. Facing the way of my one. There's no way that is not a flagrant to you watch that it is with deliberate intention after the game.

You'll have to trust me on this the clippers came back from thirty one down midway through the third to win in the most inspired blank blank comeback. I've ever seen in basketball history.

May maybe buddy on these teams in the playoffs. They in the last two to three years they've gotten rid of Chris Paul Blake Griffin and Tobias Harrison hundred. Yeah, you'd say to yourself. They have no chance they made the playoffs because Doc Rivers can coach Doc Rivers solid guy can coach not so much in some rounds of the playoffs going out on three one twice. We all like, Doc Rivers. They win Lou Williams who doesn't even start because that's his deal thirty six and eleven. Genesis a to me I don't think they're going to win. But because I think in a seven game series better teams win. And I think Golden State is still the better team. I I don't think there's much question about that. But Golden State does something that is the David can speak to better than I. They are so good offensively that it's almost like, Nicole. Okay. Take twenty four seconds. And do what you want to.
