Douglas Stuart Reads Kevin Barry
"Hi douglas debra. How are you. I'm alright welcome when we talked about doing this. You had originally been inclined to choose a scottish story to read on the podcast but in the end you settled on an irish one. Do you think that the two traditions are interlocked. The certainly have a very close relationship. But even in reading the kevin body still here realized how much of the pronunciation and the expressions weren't familiar to my ear and so although the close they are quite different in terms of This story it feels a little like a fairy tale in a sense. I mean it has that sort of fable like quality to it. And i feel so it may work in a tradition of irish fables. To what you think you think it's certainly in that tradition of irish oto storytelling. It starts off with You know the narrator. Saying so. I bought an old hotel in the fjord of killary and just the way he brings you into the story. You have a sense that not only as a fable but it's the type of story we would pass around in pubs and from most both and that i think is the irish tradition and certainly the scottish tradition. Because sometimes when we don't find ourselves in literature it doesn't mean we're not natural-born storytellers and those oral stories. Don't always get written down. That is absolutely true here. And i think that's part of the charm of this is just the mixture of these canisters. When you see it almost feels quite other-worldly at times. And i chose the story because first of all it's just totally entertaining but also because it made me nostalgic for a time when we could gather and and be together without thinking about the consequences about the weight that comes with with those gatherings. Yeah yeah having scenes in a in a pub with everyone talking it feels like another world. That's true did you read the story when it first came out in two thousand ten. I didn't actually. I was led to kevin body short stories. Because norma s- fan of his novel night bhutan. Jere and i was thinking about what i wanted to read. I love kevin. Barry and i was actually surprised to see. He has published many stories in the new yorker. Yeah the first one. I believe and Do you think that this one sort of fits in with his general themes it. Does i find him always writing about masculinity especially men on the margins. But what's interesting about this is. There's an absence of hard man or criminals or Petty gangsters that he often populate has novels these other short stories. These are just people who are gathering together in a pub And there's a poet at the heart of it. We'll talk some more after the story. And now here's douglas stuart reading fjord of killary by kevin berry fjord killary so i bought an old hotel on the fjord of killary. It was set hard by the harbour wall with moody amount across the water and disgracefully gray skies above. It rained two hundred. Eighty seven days of the year and the locals were given to magnificent mood swings on the night in question. The rain was particularly violent. It came down. Like handfuls of neal's flung hard and fast by a cd asli royal sky. God i was at this point eight months in the place and about convinced that it would be the death of me. It's end to the fucking world stuff out there. I said the quotas of locals and the hotels lounge bar as always ignored me. I was a fruitful blue in by their mark and simply not cut out for tough gnarly west of ireland. Living there were listening instead to jon murphy or alcoholic funeral director. Albury anything that fucking moves. He said bastards suicides tinkers. He said i couldn't give a fuck monkeys he said. Maria is the most depressing mountain you've ever seen by the way and it's gone looming shape filled almost every view from the water's edge hotel. The loans bars included the locals drank. Mostly bushmills whiskey and guinness stout and they drank them to great excess. I wiped they're slobs from the counter. With the bar cloth i had come to hate with a passion verging on the insane.
How can we learn to embrace boredom?
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story mark. Hawkins is a counselor and the author of a book called the power of boredom. Hello mark how're you doing. Honestly i'm bored. I feel like i've been board for months. What have you been with your boredom over the past eight months. And what have we been doing in general during this time I find myself definitely reading a lot more. Certainly i have not been able to do all titties especially social activities and going to restaurants and so I've tried to do nothing at all sometimes But also doing what. I like to call a low engagement activities like You know reading or you know sitting on the couch and you know this chilling out and try not to give into sort of my restless urge to go in and do something whether it is you know go eat or you know maybe go have a drink or or something like that something along those lines. Let me ask you this when you say you try to. Just sit on the couch What do you do when you sit on the couch watching tv or you on your phone laptop well not to watch tv like if my purpose is to sit there and and do nothing. That's what i tried to do You know maybe. I will just to kind of sit there and just be there as long as i can. Sometimes you know. I have a pretty good view from where i live so i think it is a bit easier to stay out the window. Sometimes they do that But i just tried to be as a little engaged as possible and you know it's not always easy for me like i think that it is a. It's a process that i'm still learning to be more comfortable with boredom and learning more about how it affects me. Well let's start. I guess where your book starts. It's a term that we throw around all the time especially during long months of lockdown but what is boredom well boredom. It's really hard to pin down. Really because it i mean i call it an emotion but you could also call it you know a mood or a state of the human condition. Really what it is is. It's the lack of anything to do. It's the lack of finding something worthwhile to do with our time or something that we deem as important or that engages our minds and so in some ways it's an emotion because you know we're feeling it and think oftentimes it appears as a restlessness But it's also like a more sort of It's a mood right in the sense that it's a way that we are experiencing the world. There is a great quote. I think in the book. Where is everything around us. Seem to be drained of its meaning. It's not that we're board but everything around us has lost. Its purpose to us has lost. Its shininess. It's newness right and then it doesn't engage us any longer. See that i bet. Many people who are listening can identify with that feeling a lot things around our home that we use to you know look forward to getting home and enjoying or spending time with now just surround us twenty four seven and they no longer feel like. We should look forward to doing you know. Yeah i was really interested in. Why is it that when we have nothing to do. Why is it that we feel this. Need to go into something. And i thought that really spoke to something strange about the human condition in general. And that's that's where i'm coming from is i'm a student of the human condition you know. It did. My counseling degree In meaning and purpose and then phd also related to to meaning and purpose and along the way of doing that research. I discover that is very much related to boredom. And as i was doing all my research i came to the point that it seems that movement in some form. Another whether it's physical or psychological. Is something absolutely necessary for us as humans. And actually if you look around the world everything moves. Everything is always in flux and then obviously the contrast of that is boredom right so in some ways. We're meant to be moving all the time. And it's really you know if you think about it. Our our hunter gatherer ancestors if they didn't move all the time whether it was hunting forging making spears or whatever it might be they would have died and so it's almost a survival instinct to keep moving forward yet today. I think we're in such a state that we're going way too fast so we need to rein it in a little bit just like we're meant to eat. You know certainly meant to eat every single day. But we're not meant to eat. You know ten thousand calories. And i think that's where we are today is that were meant to move. But we're just not meant move and as fast as we are and so that's why it has become so uncomfortable for us to board and proud to why we need to be more board and really listen to what's going on in that space when you talk about our need to move and the fact that we're moving more and faster than ever before let's leave the pandemic for a second. We'll definitely talk about that. You're not necessarily talking about physical movement right. yes exactly you know. I think like animals. Obviously you know. They're always physically engaged but humans justice psychologically engaged. I think it's just as as needed for us right. Yes diving into something that engages our minds so so given that then Shouldn't the past twelve months have been really good for us in some way that to give us a chance to to slow down and not have Places to go and people to see all the time yet know for sure. I think it has been a good opportunity. But i think the problem is. Is that you kind of have to be a student of boredom to actually take advantage of it right and most people came into the pandemic with the attitude that most of us had for most of our lives. Which is it is a bad thing that needs to be avoided so therefore a lot of us just filled it up with something different right and maybe that's a good thing. we discovered new things that we enjoyed. And there's nothing wrong with

The Biden stimulus is admirably ambitious. But it brings some big risks, too.
"Stimulus plan. Now Congress Brian they're working on a $2 trillion stimulus plan economist Larry Summers. He was an adviser for the Obama administration. He thinks that's just too big, and it's gonna bring back more inflation, The top of inflation that we haven't seen in a generation. So, Brian a big stimulus package. Is this good or bad for our retirement planning? Well, I think right now the Simmons box. Obviously good rights, propping up a lot of businesses. Lot of liquidity out the market and you see the markets hitting new new highs almost on a weekly basis. We've got some volatility, but One of them's that Larry was talking about. He was a talk economic adviser for former president Obama. He warned President Biden's proposed covert 19 relief packages too big and it could overheat the economy. And it Z. Not the only one to say that. But Summers was Treasury secretary under former President Clinton. He wrote that the proposed $1.9 trillion Timmons could ignite inflationary pressures. Off a kind that we have not seen in a generation and went on to say that Hey, this risk of inflation could have consequences for the dollar and financial stability in general and said stimulus measures of this magnitude contemplated our steps into the unknown. His remarks are really notable because Biden has received almost no pushback from Democrats in pursuit of his legislation. He has begotten a little bit on the Republican side of the aisle. But some progressives have griped about by did not go Big enough. Believe it or not, But Democrats are largely united behind the bill. But what's really interesting with this is that he's getting and hearing from the same side of the aisle for people that aren't in Congress that saying, but historically served under Democratic presidents and saying, Hey, this is probably a little bit too much Republicans have been, you know, kind of saying that, but it is going to jump start our economy. There's no doubt this is going to increase spending is going to prop up our economy. But it is probably going to lead to inflation of what we haven't seen in terms of the level in quite some time, right. But you mentioned the common, you said, overheat the economy to find that for me. Well, it's not real growth is not genuine growth. It's basically artificially induced by all the money that we're printing prior to cove in 19. Our economy was cooking on all levels, and but there was nothing that was stimulating that we had good growth. Independence on energy manufacturing was up real estate. But now, ah lot of the stuff that's being supporters being supported by government dollars While we need to get these businesses propped up and we need to give businesses open and things like that the amount of money that we're printing And pumping into this economy. It's going to inevitably lead to inflation it it has to when we're printing this much money as we are, and all I'm saying is, it's overheating because it's not real, in terms of where we were a year ago with this time, Hey, that was a lot more legitimate before the government basically just pulled the breaker on the whole economy and You know and manually shut it down. So do we need t Get back? Yeah, absolutely Do we need to keep putting this much money into it? I think it's going to depend on on where you're sitting right now. Right? If you're a technology, and you're here Cos been going great. And it's okay to work remote from home. That's great. If you're a restaurant guy he's been, you know, operating at 25% capacity and you were closed for out of the past eight months, because hey, I need I need to pee Pee pee plan I need Relief for my employees, So it really depends on what side of the island and you know where you are in the spectrum of how this pandemic has impacted you from a business standpoint from a personal standpoint, and that's not equal for everybody for sure. Okay, Michaela, I
Stay-At-Home Mom Starts Bamboo Baby Biz
"Thicky weinberg is a momma to based in the uk used to have a corporate job but suffered from post natal depression. After our first child was born she then retrained as a children's yoga teacher in cape local class during her second pregnancy picky had some issues with her hip and back then she couldn't teach anymore. It had to find someone to cover her classes but by the time the baby was born she was ready to do something anything even though she didn't know what one dave vicky was listening to pat plans smart passive income. Podcasts she heard a story about two guys selling products on amazon. The idea of living on the beach with laptop wasn't her kind of lifestyle but having the freedom to work whenever and wherever she wanted that was being an idea sparked to create a brand of high quality baby products that can be used reused and gifted to other families and so when our second baby was only six weeks. Old tiny chipmunk came to life as well. Vicki knew she wanted to create a range of bamboo baby products and use google's keyword tool to research. What would come first. She leaned on baby swallows and used ninety nine designs to find a logo design by. She went to alibaba dot com to search for a supply at the same time. She ordered samples of similar products from amazon to scope out. The existing market wants. Her product was ready. Vicky place the order spent time building her website making an amazon listing. She worked whenever she could which was mostly when the kids snapped and even though it took her about eight months to get to launch. She's glad she did. Tiny chipmunk has become vicki's main work. Bogus bring at least twenty five thousand dollars a year in profit. She doesn't have to work set hours because the business mostly runs itself in fact even though she had to homeschool her kids and cut back on her hours over the past year sales remained steady. Still there have been some challenges. at first. she had no idea what legal disclaimers and other information. She had to put on your packing so she went back to google and ninety nine designs to find a packaging designer but she never received a sample from her chosen supplier before placing the full order. This turned out to be a big mistake because the quality was poor. The cardboard was way too thin and kept ripping which led to products getting damaged luckily option by the time she restocked she could go back in time. Vicky also says she wouldn't have tried to do everything herself nor tried to be everywhere at the same time. Most of the marketing strategy she tried didn't work ended up costing her money and time a better approach would have been for her to focus on one sales channel for example one social media platform and build from there. Fortunately as her business has grown vicky has to nowadays. She doesn't just sell products online. She also coaches other people who want to sell products. She's happy to work on both projects. They feel good. They fit in with your family life. She chooses what she does. She does it for as well as where when. And how as a bonus she's also gained confidence and new connections going forward. The plan is to launch more of her own products while helping other people create and sell. There's no plans to do less one on one coaching. Instead move towards more group. Coaching and courses it all starts with baby steps.

How theater weathers wars, outlasts empires and survives pandemics
"Oh firm use of fire that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention a kingdom for a stage princes to act and monarch to behold the swelling scene. Though to be totally honest right. Now i'd settle for a real school day a night out and a hug from a friend. The words that i spoke at the beginning firm use a fire etc are shakespeare's. He wrote them as the opening to his play. Henry the fifth and there are also quite likely. The first words ever spoken on the stage of the globe theatre in london when it opened in fifteen ninety nine the global go on to become the home for most of shakespeare's work and from what i hear that shakespeare guy was pretty popular but despite his popularity just four years later in sixteen zero three. The globe would close for an extended period of time in order to prevent the spreading and resurgence of the bubonic plague and facts from sixteen zero three to sixteen thirteen. All of the theaters in london were closed on and off again for an astonishing seventy eight months here in chicago in two thousand sixteen new theaters opening as well. The steppenwolf had just opened at seventeen hundred theater. Space the goodman down in the loop had just opened its new center for education and engagement and the chicago shakespeare theatre had just started construction on its newest theatre space. The yard today. Those theatres as well as the homes are over two hundred and fifty other theater companies across chicago are closed due to covid nineteen from broadway to l. a. Theaters are dark and when or if the lights are ever going to come on again. That means that tens of thousands of theater artists are out of work from actors and directors to stage managers. Set builders costume designers. It's not like it's an easy time to go wait tables. It's a hard time for the theater. And it's a hard time for the world but while theaters may be feeder as an art form has the potential to shine on how we can process and use this time apart to build a brighter more equitable healthier future together. Theater is the oldest art form we humans have. We know that the greeks were writing plays as early as the fifth century. Bc but theater goes back before that it goes back before we learned to write to call and response around fires. And who knows maybe before we learned to build fire itself feeder has outlasted empires weathered wars and survived plagues in the early sixteen hundred. Theatres closed over sixty percent of the time in london. And that's still looked at is one of the most fertile an innovative periods of time in western theater history. The plays that were written then are still performed today. Over four hundred years later unfortunately in the early sixteen hundreds a different plague was making its way across the ocean and it hit the shores of what would be called american sixteen nineteen when the first slave ships landed in jamestown virginia. Racism is an ongoing plague in america but many of us in the theater like to think we're not infected or that we are at worst as symptomatic but the truth is our symptoms have been glaring onstage and off. We have the opportunity to use this intermission. Caused by one clegg to work to cure another. We can champion a theater. That marches protests burns bills. We can reimagine the way our theaters institutions work to make them more reflective. And just we can make this one of the most innovative and transformative periods of time in western theater. History one that we're still learning about celebrating four hundred years from now. What we embody in the theater can be embodied in the world. Why because theater is an essential service. And what i mean by that. Is that theater is in service to that which is essential about ourselves. Love anger rage despair. Hope theatre not only shows us the breadth and depth of human emotions. It allows us to experience catharsis to feel our feelings and rather than ignore compartmentalize them move through them to discover. What's on the other side
This startup is making customized sexual harassment training
"Is raising money. And i think this is a really cool company and i want you to tell us all about it. Athena raised money in june with two million round for anti harassment software that it would send to companies and companies basically. Install it for their employees. You'd get a nudge every month. Five minute training and it'd be kind of this idea of making a more flexible way of learning about how to deal with modern situations that might rise up better than the one hour lecture. This is a shift in its focus. Because before was doing kind of one thing and now it's doing a broader array of things when it raised in june was just doing anti harassment in zoom and slack world and now eight months later.

Those are big names. They have twenty thousand active employees completing their monthly training which the co founder is a positive signal that it's at least getting engagement in some way.

Kim Jones on the Making of Air Dior
"It's been a crazy. Eight months herself is being crazy as being busy. Yeah and i've appreciated time at home and being able to have time to myself. Reflect more of john when you were say a lot of time to research the excited about a very eventful few months but today we're here to talk about sneakers. what makes an amazing sneaker. And what makes an amazing sneaker launch air. Dior or shoe which we have right here. It's like the most sought after sneaker in the world right now. yeah. I've been scouring the internet to kind of see what people are saying and how much they cost and you know it's crazy how quickly they've accelerated price. I wanted to start with your own relationship with sneakers because it goes back a long time. This is not a trend. You just jumped on. I mean most people who know me know that i started out working at a company called gimme five whereas college but before that when a student also at school nyc for me was the absolute must have an odd save off and dish. Dishwasher governed by pair of sneakers and people have michael jordan with the heroes and just everyone was wearing sneakers. Me and my friends would chip into bypass to share them and share parents of have jordan. Fives that were on. Discount in place in brighton that we bought a we went and three as on them now. Forty five pounds and we chipped by them and then we take them in terms of obviously make sure no one stood on them and sick have never allowed to go out anywhere teaching them and it was just you. Nuts is the design. It was just like it was a cult thing. It became colton. You know we both got these which the first one of the first has jordan's in the white and gray which is the basis for the ed your and the ideal thing was really dickel t and i've had a contract with nike for quite few years. And then they taught me about being jordan. And as i really love to do with your because they've never done and luxury house with georgian collaborations. I would take italian at you know jordan with the dior factories and really make something special and exciting. And it's really you know it was solid. Where do you want jordan's that was really how it started as bit selfish so before we get into the actual kind of design of the shoe. Because i think there's a lot of thought that goes into that. Of course the jordan one for the uninitiated amongst us. I think sneaker has called it the aj one. Why is that such an important shoe. Silhouette i think is just such design. Classic infamy you does periods in history. Whether it's been shoes. Come out like this on the air. Max ninety five that just speak to people and they speak to a generation of people for me. I didn't have the original pair of these because they a bit too young for them and they really out of my price range and they weren't so easy to get the uk. And then as i started going to japan as i graduated i started collecting fares what i think the first bought seven bucks in a flea market and then to visit a friend where does student and that was kind of to shake shaking. You just they just become infectious shots at me. Now you just love to design it so joining a club. I guess so. When you're thinking about designing a shoe that has to balance effectively three different brands right. Young jordan has its own brand completely new operated separately with its own team. Then there's night key which obviously is like gave birth to the jordan. There's there's three iconic brands so when you're when you're when you're designing a shoe and you have to balance the dna. Three brees was really like we need to netflix. Because that's one of the criterias of deal is significant advance. We knew the letter had to be sourced. We knew we wanted to have the finishings. Made like bag would be made. So you have the edge painting. You have the way that things are hand finished in the sewing. The oblique here is made specific size just the jordan and it scaled per size of georgian. And you have again. You have on the tongue which is a new technique that we developed an inside the leather so units inside which they did have the normal jordan and inside. I have the numbers or these are the ones from the miami share. Whichever forty has them and really making them for people that would appreciate something and understand the croft now in consumption when you talked about fashion. I'm very aware of numbers and craft being important people. I think young people are learning by nets and they won't buy things last longer for me. Doing things like this was something being a limited number of things but it's creates excitement. There were only thirteen. Thousand pairs of shoes made but there's also a whole bunch of other skews in the collection which may be the as much. Yeah i mean. We've mentioned what we michael jordan's wore jay. But he was because he was the coolest guy and it was like he will seats all the time and we were looking at we made of his clothes and then we had to call them present it all to him which was kind of because he sees everything can approves everything jordan. What was that like. I mean he was super lovely. And i get in chicago. We went to do the don't it was like. I was really impressed that he was to be honest. That's the cage stream isn't it. I guess it was. He was just radiant. He's and you want to keep them the stuff so we can keep it and travis was there and he was reading into it so you know promise travis he'd be one of the people have it and it was just it was. It was an appreciation for each other. That was the thing that was nice about. What did you have to see to the powers that via d. or to get them. I mean they've never done nothing like that. I had to piatra use my ceo and we have extremely good relationship. And i was like. I really want to do this. What you think it nina. He's in his twenties and he was thought it was cool idea who grew up here as per say that was pretty easy to do in nyc. Nike was little bit but then they got into.

Twistzz to FaZe, Kjaerbye's Future
"I know we've talked about care be a little bit on the show before through different roster changes and when he went on to face because he hasn't been on phase very long i think he joined in what august of last year. It was yeah. It was august last year. Not entirely too young long. Especially when you think of a player break was in between that too. So i mean almost unfortunate for him in the sense of had it not been twist he would probably still beyond phase but again twist is one of those players. Where if they are. If are free agent. You go for it like regardless of if you're covered that's why when we had ryan on the show from rush be media. He brought up g to and like well gee to seems to be kind of trending upwards and he's like yeah but it's twist like you doesn't matter where you're trending like any team is going to look at him and say hey we'll it fit so unfortunate for making fit make workout care be is an interesting case to me because on paper. He's washed up like he. He was game. Stop stock two days ago last week. Everyone wanted him everyone. He was the hot. The cat's meow. The bee's knees we're talking former major. Mvp he was the mvp for the atlanta illeg major in twenty seventeen and that was like when he was eighteen years old. He's only twenty two. And if you're looking at it you're like what happened like where's khirbet from twenty seventeen when he was on astrology. Was that just being on astrologers. Because now he's gone from astrologist to north to now phase two now inactive. And it's like bro. i'm. I'm getting worried for the public perception of kirby ever since moved to north. He's never made the top twenty less. He made the two years previously on astrologists It's he's in a tough spot. Because like i didn't think they would actually drop him like they had another option right like rain could have been the player dropping. I think rain is also like pretty heavily invested in phase. At this point you know Look look think of snoot you got you got fired from your job when there was a temp working there. No but they were looking at the like. That's why i really believe that carrigan move is happening. I think they're playing chess in this situation. They'd make that switch. And maybe it's a role issue here of what they would both be playing. And maybe you put the writing on the wall if it's like. Hey marcus Kb you're going to be moving positions and we're gonna accommodate twist in every way possible and this is what he's gonna play like. I think they're just playing one step ahead in rather have all lost stand in. Keep the team mean. That's the only thing that makes sense. Because why would you drop a player. Whether or not the i mean. He's been on there since august with a player breaks. I think it's almost too early to even say his performance has been poor because like i mean although if you look on. Ltv look back from the last year on his end. I think is like eighty are has averaged around sixty seven it's rating rating. Since he's been with them. Do you know. I mean i look at the last year and i think it was i. I can look up here real quick but it was like below one not good you know. Yeah i mean like you. Yeah i mean obviously you want to be. He's only been on face since august. So i also have been playing with that standing right right plates matches with all off now and so. It's not like that t the team just hasn't been in a good spot. Ultimately this could be a good thing for him once he probably a better suited roster for him. Know sucks any time you get dropped but yeah he. He's an incredibly unusual spot. But i think you'll landed team you know if you're thinking that he wouldn't get a team that that's definitely not the a team. It's just when you think a former mvp for a major top twenty twice right. Top fifteen wants only twenty two years old. That's the crazy thing. Twenty two like he peaked so fast at eighteen. I mean yeah. He came in as a rookie essentially and did what he did and so excited to see where he goes. The thing is i don't think he's washed up. I think outside of the age thing. There's still a lot of talent there like eight months ago. He'd like you said you just got signed by phase one of the considered the best teams in the world in you're telling me that much time it's diminished when half the time they've been playing with the standard the other half of the time the teams around aren't playing well either so you can't put that on him you know nico runs away from the team in the middle of their transition of him trying to get accustomed to what's going on and you lose that type of player on that team you know morales going to start to dip so know and also his situation with north wasn't always the healthiest right like ms l. was constantly on the hot seat for like two years. Felt like and that team would do well in the tournament and then might the next three they would not even get place top aide or something like they had some really rough outings but they had some success there so he hasn't found consistency since he's left. Astrologers who has like if you're not on strollers who's consistent you know there's very few teams liquid is one of the few that you could think has shown a lot of consistency at times and then now recently obviously it hasn't been so much but He's he was on an amazing team. He was able to shine on that team. Now it looks like he's trying to find his way. He's having those some of those rookie bums not coming out now but like he's learning to be different environments in. They're still a good chance that we see him have a successful year. It's just got to be the right

"So with eight months shelf life for this. You will find large fluctuations a couple of ampoules. Rory mcilroy opened a fourteen to one he's now the seven to one soul favorite only one in single digits. And that's a large move from fourteen to seven defending champion. Patrick reed. He opened thirty two one. He's been in really poor form lately. And he's up to sixty two one just not attracting too much betting interest and someone like Alex Noren he opened sixty to one and he's been really poor himself, and he's all the way out to two hundred to one. So you find large fluctuations like that over the time. We're going back to last year when read one it was e- playing well going into the weekend. I don't remember personally. I'm just saying how much does that factor in? But you mentioned that there hasn't been that much backing. Of read. So that's why numbers is is odds of gone up because obviously, you're managing risk and liability. But how much does recency factor in to you know, sort of like the the likelihood of winning? Well, it does. And that's why Rory is seven to one. We're a very favorable position on him. But there's no need to go higher. Go higher that will dissipate. So based on how solid his play has been. You know, we're keeping the odds and a comfortable range rather low and same thing with Dustin Johnson at ten to one after Dustin Johnson at ten roses twelve and everyone else goes up from there. But you know, you take a lot of stock in that consistent form reason play and right now macro is at the top of that mcilroy had a chance to win a couple of green jackets has not delivered. He's looking for the career grand slam. He's won four majors covering the other three. But not this one fourth. This is best finish. And how much does that? How much do you think like the pressure or all that weighs into not at all? Well, he's been through things so many times now that you know, he's got the last five years. He's been top ten on. This course, I think he's playing the best golf that. He's played in his career at this point right now. And so I think he can handle that pressure..
