So they've said they can either return to offshore detention on narrowly and png or they can take up some third country resettlement offer but as we've discussed these exceptionally limited and the us resettlement deal will also expire certain. The israeli government continues to refuse new zealand's new zealand's or a longstanding offer to reset one hundred and fifty people per year and so refugees really faced with very few options or ways of getting out of the sort of prolonged legal returning to their home country is not an option because they fear or face persecution there.

Sixty people have been resettled from australia's offshore detention regime in the us but there still is capacity for the us to resettle more in relation to people in australia's ori sorry this over a thousand people that in australia so called transitory persons which means that they have been transferred to australia for some temporary purpose that includes around one hundred ninety people that were transferred under the now repealed medevac legislation. Some of these people when they were transferred to australia transferred to closed immigration detention for prolonged periods particularly the loss geo but many of these have since been released so basically we have a a large cohort of people who've been found to be refugees onto the status determination process in pay and jay and nari who are now in a

"It's not a ticket to a first class economy and there's a very interesting question here and that is are we going to get behind the prices which expands the number of countries that can participate in god and resettlement with his dirt appliances or regard to hold out and say that will we're interested in freeing people from persecution if they can do so in a first world economy and i think these provides a real opportunity to change that paradigm and we're talking about effectively three signatory countries. You're talking to each other now after my discussions with now route today now rue australia and came back to you. I think this has real promise but this agreement expired in two thousand eighteen so it was only available for a very short period of time And it was an agreement that was made largely and sacred and then exchange for around fifty million dollars in aid to cambodia. And it's supposed to be largely failed in practice. Sorry since two thousand fourteen only seven refugees have opted for resettlement in cambodia and the majority of as have actually returned to their harm states because life in cambodia was too difficult and not not viable now that first option that sarah mentioned their resettlement impinge e. That's actually something that lagman applied for and he's way historic gets even more complicated so after applying says he was accepted and initially he settled in the city of lay but he says he felt unsafe there and after trying unsuccessfully to go back into starting immigration detention. He fled the country ending up in fiji. Where after just a few days. He was detained and deported.

Why Michael Brown Understands Atheists

"When i met at the age of nineteen i have been following jesus than for two and a half years. She was a hardcore atheist. Jewish atheist are mom been married four times. By the time she was eight she concluded there was no god she thought it would be wonderful. If god exists existed this eight years old but concluded that there was no god. So when when i met her she was a really a god. Macher and really thought that that faith like this was just for weak people and to the core of for being. She's a realist. I mean to this day. She is the most realistic person. I know in terms of just call This being honest with re- with reality say and yet god intervened in her life and brought it to himself. He revealed himself In fact the first thing that happened was she realized that personified evil was real and therefore is personified evil. The light went on there is personified. Good and god began to work in her life. But going through this book eric. She helped me a lot because she understands how an atheist thinks and a lot of times. Because there's no such thing as ats That always bothers her because she knows and the court for being what she believed in didn't believe and then many many atheists actually had a very lofty view of god and that god didn't seem to exist that they wanted him to others are intellectual atheists and others are just angry and things like that but there are many that atheists at a disappointment and pain. And i remember when i debated bart ehrman. It'll high state university years back on the problem of suffering. Does the bobble provide an adequate answer to the suffering and i. I was preparing for the debate. And i tell nancy okay. I'm gonna use this argument. Things great gets no is really good because down on. Let me let me tell you what that sounds like. Oh i got it.

We're going to have you on the podcast. Show your story. The first question i always ask everyone is why. Va shin. Why did you want to become a pilot. Yeah for me. It goes back quite awhile so my dad started taking me to oshkosh airshow when i was about eight years old and that was really the spark for me just being at the air show around the airplanes watching the air show performances at knitting so many pilots. And having that just be the dorm that you know you're just everyone you interact with as a pilot. I knew i wanted to be a part of this community. I knew that. I wanted to fly in some capacity and i was so attracted to aerobatic side of things and just generally And like really tight community there so yet it was definitely be airshow. Seen that drew me. When i was young to why did i bring you. There was a dislike. You look to the paper and on the oshkosh. Let's bring my daughter there. And maybe she'll like aviation or aviation already and those kind of like a constant thing your family would go up to oshkosh. My dad had been going for quite a few years before he brought me. He wanted me to be old enough. That i could like make it through an airshow day without you know having a breakdown so eight years old was he. When he decided i was good they. He has always loved airplanes. He's not a pilot himself but he has always been a big aviation enthusiasts and lover of airplanes. When he was young he was told he couldn't be a pilot because he had eyesight. Which in the sixties was kind of true but But yeah so he has really stayed connected to the community has a lot of friends who are pilots so it was very natural for him to introduce it to both me and my younger brother adds Bring us with two airshows and we'll go flying with his buddies who had smaller planes around chicago at.

'Deshaming' Challenging Moments for Your Child

"I have two ideas i wanna share de shaming and helping your child get ready for a challenging moment. Let's go through those. And i'll model some strategies along the way number one d shaming. What what does this even mean. Well inch enroll. Our kids are over well-named by our capability. Let's even think about the i. I don't know our of a kids day right when they wake up when they get dressed when they brush their teeth when they get their cereal ready when they think about the homework maybe they have to finish when they packed their bag when they have to remember to get a coat. All of these items are things that even eight-year-old really has to think through and probably messes up along the way. Meanwhile they see us already dress. They see that we're having our coffee. They see that we can reach everything in the cabinet even things they can't reach yet they hear us say. Hey you forgot your water bottle again clearly. Indicating that remembering something easy for us and yet difficult for them. There's no inherent problem here. We know well we're adults. We figured out a lot of things along the way but our kids don't know that and one of the reasons so many kids shutdown is not only because something is hard but they feel ashamed that something's hard because they feel alone in all the challenges of daily life. so how can we d- shame. This how can we add connection. How can we normalize having a hard time we can all. I think do a lot better modeling making mistakes and struggling. This can be something so simple. You do in front of your son. One day you could be zip. Bring up your cope and instead of doing it mindlessly and being successful struggle with it all the zipper so stuck still didn't work. okay. One second becky. Deep breath try again. I didn't do it yet. I know i can do this. Meanwhile your son is just kind of happening to witness this right. Even though of course you kind of knew. You're going to do this in front of him. You don't have to look at him. After and say see. Things are hard for me. Also actually i would say. Don't do that play a cool and just trust that.

Why Do Elephants Like Peanuts?

"I am alice. I'm eight years old. I live in houston texas and my question is why do elephants like peanuts. Thank you great question analysis. When we're learning about animals. We tend to get our information from a lot of different places what we read what we if we can observe an animal and sometimes what we watch on. Tv and the idea that elephants like peanuts probably comes from the cartoons and movies. We've watched over. The years elephants are herbivores. That means they eat grasses and bark vegetation in zoos. They'll eat fruits and vegetables hay and sometimes pellets of food. That kind of look like pet food. The connection between elephants and peanuts is that in early. Zoos and circuses. Lots of peanuts for sold for human visitors to eat sometimes. These zoos and circuses would let humans feed the animals. And just like your dog might sometimes eat people food if you give him or her. Some the elephants would eat. The peanuts got offered these days. Zoos don't let you feed the animals and that's a good thing. Biologists and veterinarians say peanuts army. Great food for elephants so while it's funny to see elephants. Eat peanuts cartoons. They don't do it in the wild and it's not really a food. they like better than anything else.

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

It was not easy to get agreement on all three, but it was so essential the Bills price tag $973 billion over five years or 1.2 trillion over eight years. President Biden admitted it wasn't the deal he wanted. None of us got what we all whether we want it. They gave more than I think. Maybe there were inclined to give in the first place, but this reminds me of the days we used to get awful lot done up in the United States. Congress, Democratic Senator Kirsten Cinema called the agreement a historic investment in infrastructure. We all Gave some to get some because what we did was put first the needs of our country.

He's achieved, but it was a really sweet moment I just I. I like how he's like I need I need makeup remover a need to get this shit off? Please someone, please which why? Why don't you travel with with with makeup remover all? All, have there, but you can go you go to CVS, and you can get the little neutrogena packets for like a dollar in you. Just there's five elementary, and you throw them in there, and you wipe it off and you're done. He doesn't need it. He has a whole. The all staff that volunteer take off the entertainers makeup I need to know I you have to do. It now no, so. Trying to think if there's anything else really stands out from this episode. That's super. That's about it. Oh yeah, the final. We need to talk about so at the end. It's very touching. They that they played all the sad country music. As you know, they always own. He's out there talking about people. They talk about. Brand Haryoko. Pseudo Mark Henry show Michael's AAA h and the Mayor Kane. American, mayor came Oh always be. The mayor came I find that relationship, really interesting and I would love to know more about it because I watch after this. CAIN interview with don't call currently going around watching it because amount of content, and so I wanted to watch it and remember to sell there so the way that cain talks about mark undertaker I don't know. Are we allowed to call him mark? Are we allowed to do that now? I don't know. Anyway the undertaker was absolutely instrumental in canes. Career always went to bat for him, and always defended him, and always stood up for him. Their work married basically, and so I kind of love that relationship in that dynamic between the two the way that they talk about each other 'cause taker taker I. think Really Really Really Likes Glenn, to shout him out twice, you know. And just to be given crap and everything, so I think he really likes him but I. Just I like that relationship, and how that dynamic is I want to see I would actually love to see the more like the two of them. Sit Down together into shoot. Shit would be amazing, but at least to me I know my else, but I would love to watch that, but yeah, this was. This was everything that you want you wanted in finale. The country music, which was troubadour by George Strait kicked you. You in the fucking feels so hard to so hard I cried my way through the ending of it, but as I keep saying, but yeah this if this is it if this is really it and he's done I'm sad that he's, but I'm also happy for him because it's obviously a decision that he has struggled with, and it means that he's no longer in pain, if it means that he gets to be happy and spend time with his family, and his daughters, and his son, and his wife and Enjoy all the fruits of his Labor so man. Go go live your life. Go enjoy yourself. Go do everything that you've kind of missed out on doing and just thank you. Just thank you for at least for me. Twenty years of memories and enjoyment and inspiration and everything I don't know if I would be a wrestling fan without the undertaker. That's the thing I think. He's kind of at one constant. That sort of kept me in the business like when everybody else left me, the undertake roster. How Sad! I give it. Every. I would fall in love with people, and then they would go away and it's like, but but but I love him. Bring him back. Where did he go in? There was always the undertaker. He was always there and I hope he writes a book I. Think that would be the one thing that I would love to see from him, is he does write a book and he talks about his life in his career. Like I know that I owe that we got this and this was such a wonderful introspection into him, and to see not only the undertaker, but to see. See Mark Calloway because he such I feel like the man behind. It is more mysterious than the actual character Ed for good reason because he's incredibly private, he has to be and so to get to see him to get to see his personality when he's really like and the fact that throughout the years in conversations and wondering that certain things are true that we were able to beg on him. It's like okay. All right cool got that right awesome. I think it was really neat. I think it was I. Actually think I like more calorie more than I like the undertaker. That wrong, but you're afraid like going. She was very, I was really afraid to see the person because. They always say you never wanNA. Meet your heroes right and the hardest thing is when you're. Heroes approved mortal, and you see what they're really light because you see them on TV and you make assumptions about them which you shouldn't do, but we all do it. You know in terms of based on what we see and I think I was really really scared that like they were gonNA show who he really was, and it's coming out. What if he's an asshole? Or what if he's a prick? What if he's you know? Super Creepy your grocer. The real story is what we've seen. We have talked about in our second segment. Yeah, Lake, you know what if he's done all these horrific things and He's not really ultimately what if he's not the person that everybody says that he is right? What if he's really just this horrible person? What am I gonNA do because it's like I have so much invested. In this human, being as a fan that it's like God if if we ever had cancel the undertaker, I don't know if I could do it. it's that serious, and so the fact that he wasn't that, and he just this at least from all appearances down to Earth, chill, smart ass, sarcastic Texas. Redneck who you just WanNa go have a beer with makes me. Me So happy. 'cause like I said I was afraid I was really afraid that my opinion of him was going to change, and it's like what if it changes for the worse like I'm glad at change for the better, because did change, but what if it changes for the worse? What if I don't like him after this when my supposed to do with my life? No not with my life, but like like what am I supposed to do? Brings his interact with the new day. That was great. That was amazing. That was so amazing I kind of want all the bureau footage of taker interacting with all the young guys 'cause. There was like a clip from last episode where he and I think we talked about it where he's like all these assholes were kids when I showed up and then says like. I wasn't talking about you. And Seth runs away but I. Just what Yeah I just want. Take her like I don't know I wanNA see like those interactions with the talent, and I wanna see I want more from this you know. which is sad and it's wrong, but. You, what the be roll your. What the side story rather than the main store. You WanNa see interaction with people you want to see him. Do other things and. You know I want the outtakes because I want him to drop an f-bomb any outtakes. Did at least twenty times. You mean other than the. Two words, yeah, other than words other than the two times that happen I want like the outtakes I just. You know just seeing somebody. Being natural that there's there's this fascination with till, not because we don't ever get to see it, but it's like this is. This is really cool that he opened his life up and his family up for us to see this and experience this because he didn't have to. You know I think the last time he did. It was in storyline in. It did not go well for him so the fact that he did do this. This time is not necessarily part storyline. And he let us see how he is with his wife. And his daughters and his family, and his friends, and find out who he's really close with, and he just gave us that like that's. That's really cool. Hopefully, really colon.

There's a lot of people who are without a platform at the moment or transitioning to different platforms. No I. Don't know anyone who really watches facebook gaming. So that's that's unfortunate, but also you watch facebook gaming. Go follow darkest for two nine. He's amazing. But. No one was watching Nixon either. Ninja trout did not bring over the viewership that they had hoped they would. They brought over followers, but the viewership was only with the fourth to eighth of what they were getting on twitch. Because it's a different platform and people like you people watching us, say or twits that he just likes to beat you live. This is where your home is. It's more it's. Were accessible going to twitch whether that mixer platform. It's the truth because of absence of its you get on your phone. You TV Cetera. Well from what I understood when it at least when Ninja went over, not everything was set up yet the way that it was set up on twitch to the monetization options were limited, and they were very weird. I think they had gone them up and running by the time all this happened, but streamers just could not make the same amount of money. It was hard for them to give viewership because mixer mixers mixer right like when you think of a gaming platform, you think of twitch or Youtube, which gained hugely in popularity facebook gaming, which has gained in popularity because they make it easier for streamers. I think mixer was. Was a little complicated. A lot of people didn't necessarily like it they were willing to pay out. In terms of getting people come over, but in terms of viewership. Like you said it just wasn't there. A mixer has struggled for almost a year now. And I think Microsoft is find like you know what we're pulling the plug What really sucks in this is that some of their employees didn't know that this was GonNa Happen, and some other streamers that this was going to happen, and so they found out on twitter that they were out of a job where they were out of a platform and debts just horrendous it's. Horrendous that some people had to find out they were out of a job. Through social media, so I'm sorry to everybody that has lost their job or has lost their platform, because that completely sucks I know I. Know Somewhat of the hard work that it takes not really but the work that goes into building a community and building a channel and doing everything that you do for it is a lot of hard work that really does require almost your full attention and dedication to do properly and to people who have given up their jobs and given up their lives, and put all their chips in on streaming, and have had successive where mixer there now trying to find a place to go to rebuild that that channel in that community so and I've been seeing some. Some of this and I'm going to kind of agree with a lot of the other streamers him saying, please don't get keep twitch or youtube or facebook gaming. Please don't be that asshole. That's like well I was here. I, you shouldn't be here kind of thing. Please welcome everybody with open arms because they had no choice in this. It's not like they're they're like. Oh, I'm not seeing the numbers on mixer so I'm GONNA. Go back over to twitch. That's or I'm not seeing the numbers I'm GonNa. Go Try Youtube I'M GONNA. Go Try facebook. That's not what this is. This is literally. They woke up to an email that was hey were done. Take Shit and get out. That's what that is. You have thirty days to leave all. Your stuff is transferring over to facebook gaming. You can go over there if you want, but we really don't care where you go. That's what happened to them to everybody every single person on that platform and now they're trying to find a police to go, so please please be nice to people. Welcome with open arms. Help them out if you can you know, support them because they need it right, it's a rough time. It's a hard time in like people like Ninja Trout. They're impacted as well, but I think they're going to be okay. In the long run they will be okay, but the smaller streamers not so much. We'll see what happens. We ll see what happens, but I say. We take our first break of the evening. From? It'd be very quick. It's going to be a very quick break. Go get a drink. Go get something to eat. Come back because when we come back. We're doing the second half of the new second segment. This is going to be your long. This is going to be heavy. Just warning everybody in advance. We're going to try and make this as quick and painless as possible, but we are going to get into the misconduct options and everything that's happened around that. So if you want, hear about that you don't you just go, get something and come.

"You have to Grin Barrett and do take every precaution world. Sometimes things will happen. We're looking at baseball coming back. We'll look at basketball comeback. They're going to be issues. We're seeing cases up before. Baseball even gets back into play. We've had you see event. Where fire had got pulled it just going to be a thing that happens, it's it's a new reality it's. Lance to kind of answer your point. This can't stop them from wearing masks under any circumstances. I think they're trying to figure out a way where it's not mandatory for for them to do it. Because the problem is is for the for like wrestling a match, you can't wear a mask wrestling match. It's is going to be a little tricky, so I think they're trying to figure out what the stipulation on on that, but honestly I. I think it would be good if they have people in the audience or the entire audience wearing a mask I think that would send. That Senate incredibly powerful message to everybody, because I feel like everybody out there you know again. People don't want to wear them, and if you don't want to wear fine, that's personal choice, but I feel like a lot of people feel like they don't have to, or they shouldn't or stupid or it's. It's whatever right and so to see you know it's like hey, on wwe, you people wearing masks in the audience, their social distancing. They're doing everything that they need to do. Fuck put a hand washing station. The background I don't really care, but like. Just show that you're. You're actually doing what you're supposed to be doing. If people see that some people will be like, Hey, you know. Maybe I should do that, too, and eventually that message. Message will spread. It's all about using your platform for that I don't think he can bar them from wearing masks either their reports coming out from the last time that they had for the one time that they had outside individuals in there that they felt completely safe, and they didn't. They were going to wear masks, and then it was like. Hey, there's handwashing stations in their social distancing in their scrubbing everything down and you know. They felt safe enough in the environment that they did not have to wear a mask or they didn't. They had every intention of it, but it's like. Hey, you know what actually feel pretty good about this I, I'm not going. Do the thing I'm going to not wear the masks, so I think it's just. It's all up to people's personal choices if somebody wants to. To wear a mask on TV. They cannot tell them now, and they cannot throw them out of the building legally. They can't do it and they know that so so many wants to. Now they may, if they want to be in the audience and they wanNA wear masks. They may stick them off camera in the back. They can do that, but you know they can't. Can't look at somebody and say hey. You can't wear masks to TV. You can't do that, it's legally you can't do that. They would get in trouble for that, so we'll have to see but I I would be totally cool with the audience is wearing masks. They should be I. think if you're going to have an audience in there. They should be wearing masks there. There should be protected because it's like you went to the lengths to put up the plexiglas and everything else. Why not do masks to say so? Because of this getting back on topic, this is going to mean changes in the products WWE has already sort of accounting for the people that are affected or impacted and They are approach other reprogramming things accordingly. Case in point, they're doing a tribute to the undertaker. Tomorrow on smackdown were apparently they're going to rear the Boehner batch, which is a forty thirty forty five minute match. So that tells you right there one. We love taker, but to their programming has been majorly impacted the point that they're gonNA give that match away for free on TV so I. Don't I haven't heard anything about aws? No, they've had to kind of tweak the title match the chance depending on. Test results at the MOXIE will not be appearing at fire fest in the next two weeks. The well we got time they on the first, so all the different as Scott it okay for days gone it then he probably won't be there, but I'm going with what the statement is now. I! Know I'm I'm just saying as confirmed you probably Django, but again that's all personal choice, so that's kind of the Kobe update again. just keep renee young and kill Braxton, and appears Cutie Marshall and Jon Moxley and everybody else. That we don't know about in your thoughts You may want to send Milwaukee. Wish because I know. They would appreciate that if you want. It's up to you, but let's hope they get through this especially Kayla Braxton again. She's had it twice in that. Sucks, who goes to work, but it wouldn't. It wouldn't be your show without breaking news right now,.

"Don't think wwe can do three or four weeks. Awa could because they only have one show which they did which they did originally. Yes, so they could get away with that. WWe. It's a little bit harder. They would essentially have to have everybody down there for a week to probably do everything in. That's not feasible to do But continuing no family friends, our fans should attend any of these shows piping crowd noise if they want. Don't bring in New People. You don't know if there have been there. They've been social distancing. That's fair use talent staff, crowd maintain social distancing. Have them wear masks likewise stop with the lumberjack matches and the battle royals, no need of having that many people around the ring at one time. But. It's a fair point Oh. It's a fair point, an WBZ credit they're. They've they're not doing that. They're not doing the on about a royal. They've not done a lumberjack match. A W. has done both test, alls, talent and staff regularly, which Awa has been doing this whole time. W W has been doing. I think temperature checks. This this is wwe biggest flaw. They should have been testing for at least two months now. It probably wouldn't have stopped the breakout, but it would have given them some clue of what was going on essentially, and that's that's an extremely fair point it them. Testing from the get-go would not have stopped this I want everybody to understand that you'll ever tested from the start. This would happen. No, no, and you want to know why it wouldn't happen. Happen, 'cause here's the next point need to use commonsense. They've been on social media showing off each photos and birthday parties where they did nothing to protect themselves. WWE can test all they want. Same thing goes for eight W it won't matter if wrestlers are being dumbed beyond their job, which you then look at the guys like rains Kevin, Owens same museum who have taken steps to self quarantine stay with their families. Kevin has gone off into the woods. Stay home with family, they you had people so distance the proper way, but not everyone sees it as serious, or they want to have some semblance of life. The don't what moments who fly by. They tried to do. Continue enemy. We've all been We're talking about this before the show. We've been in quarantine now since March almost going on for months now not quite about three and a half going on four. We're all getting. Stir crazy, and the thing is is they've now started reopening everything Florida and Georgia and several other states have the bars open? They have the beaches open in Florida they have restaurants open their opening movie. Theaters are opening concert venues opening all the stuff back up and it's like we can now get back to normal life because Kobe was on the downturn. Now it's back on an upswing. It's on a major upswing. I know in Florida for sure and I. I think it's going to be on a major upset. Swing here in Georgia and you need to check where you'd look to. Because there's more and more at six happing everywhere, and the thing is you. Have people going out there? Not Social distancing. They're not wearing masks. I, don't know about anybody else out there, but whenever I go to the grocery store, I rarely see people wearing masks. If ever I'm wearing one, but I'm not seeing anybody else really doing it. It's very very rare and I understand. Some people think as a crock. Anderson people think it's uncomfortable. It's unnecessary. It's your choice, but here's the thing if you're a performer and if you're having to. To go into an environment where you've been potentially exposed this stuff spreads like lightning and in a fish bowl. That is the performance center as you can see. One person walks him with it tool. People can get twelve people get it. It could double. It could triple. It could quadruple, and eventually the entire staff could potentially be sick. They may not be, but that's the reality. That's how spread one person brings it and a bunch of people can get sick. You have to be smart about this stuck. She's GonNa. Be Smart, which brings me to the last point, and finally we as fans have to stop being hypocrites if we're watching these shows during this time. Time we can't tell www to stop production. We can't point out problems and give our opinions. We're part. We were part of the cycle to no one's innocent in this so basically we need to cut him some slack. If people got to show a mask, okay, people have to show up in masks. That's completely fine. I've never personally been against. That I didn't even know. That was thing that they that they were I. Don't think I don't WanNa say they weren't allowing people to wear masks, but they weren't necessarily encouraging people to wear masks, but I think people felt safe enough that they were like okay. I don't really need to wear a mask. That situation, but you have to stand that. They're doing the best that they can. In their hands extremely tied because right now. We're running with a low limited. This is both eight of U. N. WWe okay. The running with limited staff limited talent. Nobody's being forced to work. Nobody's being forced to show up. If you do not want to come to work, because you are concerned about kofoed. Kofoed or you have preexisting health conditions, or you have someone in your household that has a pre existing health condition, and you do not want to expose them, because for wrestlers and staff and everybody that are working shows that they're traveling back and forth. There's a huge exposure risk. You do not have to show up and that goes, and you can say that at any time clearly. Clearly, you can say that at any time and be like you know what I just need to self, quarantine or I want quarantine for a little while is a cool. If I stay home. Yes, it is cool. receive that with Kevin Owens. We're seeing that with same Zane happened with Roman reigns. He was kind of the first set the bar. He was like you know what I'm. I'm GONNA go home. I'm good. I'm show, but we have to cut them some slack 'cause. They're performing their. They're putting the shows together. They're giving this to us and they don't have to. They shut down and we've been saying this day one. They could have shut down and they said you want or a center home in here's here's what they will at least the released data. The can't now. Television contracts are holding them. It's the only thing even. As, the only Thing keeping AWA float. Yeah, the the money involved in that. That's what's keeping them going. They have to produce content. It's some things are facts of life producing content content for your television partners. You have to do that at some point. Is it health? Yes, can you produce content different ways? Yes, but there are parameters in. It just it sucks like everyone's in a bad spot, but. Sometimes, you have to Grin Barrett and do take every precaution world. Sometimes things will happen. We're looking at baseball coming back. We'll look at basketball comeback. They're going to be issues. We're seeing cases up before. Baseball even gets back into play. We've had you see event. Where fire had got pulled it just going to be a thing.

And there is so much that I'm learning about who we are as indigenous people and I'm definitely learning learning how proud we are how strong we are. Resilient we are and what we have thrived through That's something exciting. Because not every day are we able able to just kind of talk about this stuff and rock your mocks. It seems is giving us a reason to do that. In a space A platform to show just how how proud we are as indigenous people and maybe even start a conversation about You know what it took for us to be able to be standing where we are.

Your Mocks Party happening on the Internet right now. And that's all over the world so it's amazing to I should explain my role As event annual event producer for rock your mocks What that means is When we teamed up in twenty thirteen gene my role became to make the event happen each year create and evolve and you know gather ideas and do what I can and together we come up with new ideas and get new ideas from everybody posting? So it's kind of my job to look at all these posts and which is explaining what we're off air that there's comes a certain point that the posts that are hash tagged with rock. Your mocks gained so much momentum that I can't keep up anymore so thank you for that bet With the story the stories. That you all post on with your pictures of your moccasins. Your moccasins fees your group Marcus and sell fees they're so inspiring and it always reminds me and Jessica and I'm sure everybody nobody else following the Hashtag the of the ancestral connections and that these photos wherever you are in the world are sparking these conversations and and that for teachers and educators Everywhere that there are opportunities to share information and help the kids get creative. We see the many ideas is that The kids are doing. We seem bulletin boards Today I saw the medallions that are being made and it really. is Aw I guess in this day and age away to bring us altogether as suggests original idea of unity you know we all have that cultural identity and that we all still learn about each other. Every time this happens every year in the stories Even the people who are making them on one oh sharing about an individual ritual in my own community that many people were proud to wear his work That triggered something in you and in a huge smile came across your face Av WanNA share about just maybe even one of those stories. What I see is the There seems to be might just be The platform that form of social media but people being able to share their stories and see a lot more interest in the creation moccasins. And also I see people who get creative one. Mom sent her daughter a care package to college and it was all the necessary. Items to create. MOCCASINS ends well. She has some downtime at college. So that was a really neat idea. And Justice Morning The city of Albuquerque issued a proclamation Shen for rock your mcstay Iraq.

All the way up to the cavs they look brand new and she said that they hadn't come out in twelve years because her mom had passed away A.. And for this Special Day rock your mock stay. She thought it was really good day. See a connection to have her daughter where her mom's her daughters grandma's must moccasins and those stories that we see and read are so moving and I'm sure that they're inspiring everybody around the world as well and this is also inspire hire people to not only wear their moccasins but also to wear their traditional clothing Melissa your somebody that I've run into in different places aces and spaces and you are wearing traditional clothing In representing and talk to me a little bit about that too where you know. It is also brought people out into the open wearing their traditional clothing. I think that in New Mexico again. We're blessed that we do see that on on a day to day that it there's Pueblo women wearing traditional Clothing and when we go out and represent especially for this event and it is nice to be able to wear those kind of our formal uniform so to speak when we're representing This particular keillor event. It's a great opportunity and again that also sparks Interest from people. And we get the chance to talk about perhaps national native American heritage month or who the Pueblo. People are It it means a lot to us to be able to US being an example of of Pueblo. People and you know if if we were elsewhere in any other region to share those Cher those stories and see Sippy just had a traditional where and rockier moxie yesterday. So we're seeing a lot of those events as well L. but it also creates those opportunities for our young folks to learn about their own regalia and what's appropriate. How to put it on how to wrap your marks and things like that? a time to think about community to and That's what I use it for. You know when when rock your mcstay comes is to connect with the community or Remember those that are important to us or those who have made a mark on our life and even down to what I'm wearing today wearing a ribbon skirt that was gifted to me at a big drum ceremony in thinking of that community. That invited me in to stand with them as they were celebrating things things that were passed onto them through their community through their generations. And a Lotta Times a win. We are putting our minds on these. He's moments on these people. We get stronger. And there is strength in wearing Our traditional clothing or clothing that was gifted to us in this way and our ancestors a lot of We heard from Melvin at the top of the hour talking about a when we weren't allowed to wear clothing when we weren't allowed allowed to feel that strength and today here we are. We can do that. And here is an event that is supporting some of that. Melissa Talk to me about the strength you have when when you were wearing either your traditional clothing or even wearing your moccasins with your favorite pair of jeans sometimes Along that line we all take it for granted it We take our culture and heritage. It's there for US and This is a friendly reminder that They're an unifies. All of us that we do have our cultural heritage and yes it is good to feel connected everywhere especially within our communities we most often take that for granted and then we all come together and support each other in times a need be sad or happy or a fun event like this. So that's one of the positives positives and benefits of this particular type of event but for me with Regalia it is especially Comforting I feel Kinda like and incestual I think about my ancestors on both sides of the tribe said that I belong to and what they had gone through before in their in their days in there Erez and Before the you know the the transitioning into the type of lifestyle that we do all have now and it is It brings me back and grounds grounds.

"And went on taking I wanna use this other route but there's a lot of advantages to that these traders in me included now have access to inverse routes in I mean I'm I'm learning a lot from Stan stands really a really good resource for is a retail trader I knew of inverse routes but I never understood why why would anyone why would anyone one let me take their liquidity and I collect a rebate I never understood stuff like that little questions like that little things I've noticed over the years and now I'm getting a little bit savvy to it but I still have a lot to learn are there any other advantages which just sort of come to the top of your mind being with a firm yeah like maybe the commissions as well or the offenses are are a great point seven point seven charge any commissions so zero commissions and all the rebates are passed through and Visi CNN fees etc pass through so if you you know you're sitting on the book all the time and you can make money on rebates and it's really nice to not have to pay commissions and I think that's a formula by the way you take someone like Stan who might trade half a million or a million shares in a day on some days easy you good luck doing that when you retail that doesn't that's GonNa get really expensive really quickly so there's there's some edge to be had and in pushing volume like that you know when you're not paying commissions and stuff like that yeah definitely chat with China's podcast is brought to you by in vast the broker our trade with every single died seriously.

A. I. S. T. DOT COM dot edu slash chat yeah so the next part I guess would be talking about how you've set up this office in San Diego which I think is really awesome enough to hear a bit more about it it just tell me a little bit about what you've set up their head sort of came about yeah sure so we launched on September three what led up to that was you know cats had a vision of having an office out on the West Coast and the more we talk about it the more it just seemed like it could it could work and and we're just both jumped into it and we we launched on September three I mean before that we had to find some office space so I went around the city looking for some office space the we works and all those other kinds of places and we settled on a on a great spot here we're on we're not just on the outskirts of the Hoya right by UC San Diego and it's a great spot comfy room it's intimate it's not it's not the biggest not the biggest room and we got four desks in here and had a opened up for applications and had tremendous response I never thought that that many people I just didn't know that many people were interested or that many people would wanna sit in a room to together and I just didn't know I also didn't have a gauge for how many traders are they're actually in San Diego or you know in southern California you know it's tough out here we're west coast so we're on in California time so you know if you're if you're planning your trading day no market opens at six thirty local time so you gotta be gotta be up an atom in the the four. AM's four thirty or something you know at least give yourself a good hour hour and a half if not two hours of prep plan your day see what you're you know you're gonNA attack all that kind of stuff but I was delighted I couldn't believe how tremendous amount more applications than I ever so it was really nice to got to got to I did a deep study cats made it clear to me it's it's my office he'll support me and guide me as much help as I want but I get to decide you know who's going to sit in a room with me all day and so having that many applicants that was just wonderful 'cause really got a all spectrums you know all spectrums I had guys that applying the same they never played the trade before two guys applying that were very very very very profitable but it didn't comedown profitability you know it's also a personality thing it's got to be the right fit and I knew that coming into it because you know you could pick this most bad ass superstar trader there is but if he's got a ton of ego or she's got a ton of ego you gotta ask yourself is that someone I wanNA be sitting in a room with all day probably not at least not for me so there is that there is definitely an interview process and you know email back with some questions so these you and three others that's right currently what was probably my challenging and setting this up like oversee at something you've not Don before yeah what was most difficult about getting it setup might even not even just the setup but maybe on Edyta die lock is there anything which is sort of pain a little bit challenging about this this whole thing I'm thinking I mean I feel like something up I mean really now I wanNA make anything up I don't it's it's basically been a breeze I'll tell you what was the most challenging was getting the licenses do this you know to run an office and and all that stuff the the series fifty-seven to to be a licensed trader no longer read L. A. Professional Traders that you could trade firm capital and then I took it one step further with the series twenty four license to have my own office and so I could run the office that kind of thing that studying for those licenses and that was probably the biggest challenge but and that's because the the firm has already done this before this isn't the first satellite office seven points has launched they've got great again in New Jersey Stan in Fort Lauderdale Riley in Toronto and we launched San Diego it just early September so it's not their first Rodeo they had a lot of they done all this stuff before so any challenges Salie easily mitigated they already knew everything to do now Detroit is you have in the room when the office there with the what sick on of experience level like the three guys we've got two guys that are kind of similar her one's definitely heavily trading Mike in the micros like me the other one another one is also but also trading bigger names you know big board name it's bigger market names and then there's another guy who's who's trading I'd say almost exclusively large-caps Oh Nice Oh you gotta you gotTa Really Nice Mix and really nice blend in each throughout the day we're all you know sometimes were some of us are trading in our heads like I'll catch myself where I'm trading and even though I got three guys right next to me you know I'm extremely silent in I'm just really quiet and I'm kind of in my head I have to catch myself in those moments try and pull myself out of my head and realize hey I got like I got a huge edge over it's like every other retail trader out there right now I got I got a team of guys right next to me like you know what are they thinking about what I'm seeing what did they think about this trader trading equities but you focus on slightly different areas in that equity market definitely I think that's that was it almost seemed like I did it on purpose I wish I would have but it just I went for personalities over you know when you put a four traders and a in a room together that's that's a recipe for some conflict I feel like if defending on the tray so I was very active I wanted to pick it had to be the right guys it just had to be the right fit and I couldn't be happier these guys are these guys are are great they're doing well and and there are a pleasure to be around and I'm just really enjoying it and I assume they are to Nas Norris that's really cool man I'm happy fully what what's it like on a die today they're lucky they're D- have some sort of processes or routines implies like his era a premarket mating if so what sort of things discussed during them is there an after hours like sort of reflection on the die key talk little bit about that sure so in the mornings I'd say our mornings or pretty uniform were all you know individually at least going out there and sifting through what's available and seeing what you know between all the headlines and between all the gap irs and you know the different size markets You know I think each one of US basically putting together our own game plan of what looking to do on market open to the guy's really seem to lake trading you know in pre market so they'll they'll start pretty early the guys get in like five am our time which is eight am New York time so these guys are waking up you know at like four thirty in the morning or a little bit earlier to get into the office by five I roll in a little lead I'm in at like five thirty in the morning kind of the Lazier one but a love that stadium is light well yeah I'd go in earlier it's just having a Family at home I'm staying later than you know I I just need to stay up late to do family stuff and all that stuff so I I roll in like thirty minutes later it yeah every morning we're basically putting plans together and sometimes these plans overlap and we're looking for you know to see what we see like what do you think of this pr I read it sounds like sounds like shit to me sounds like a bunch of nothing or you know sounds like it might have merit you know the age you check out their balance sheet or did you see that that recent SHELFORD forty four filing we're just looking for it's kind of sometimes alone sometimes hunting together forming our plans in the morning in like I said sometimes those plans overlap sometimes they don't in us about like today we're experimenting right now with like a trade review where were at the end of the day or maybe sometimes during law when the market it's slow we are sharing our trades you know someone will go I will just share chart executions and ensure trades of what we're thinking you just kind of like you know put yourself out there in totally dear robe and just open yourself you know honesty you know from fresh perspective maybe from other traders the other guys that were in the same trades you were in or trading the same name you were in or just a freshman perspective from someone that wasn't even in the trade and it had no had no skin in that name in and just kind of get some feedback from them on what they thought of your trades and that can be very very lucrative thing to do but it's tough it's you know it's tough because we we sometimes we we do stupid things so it's putting yourself out there and sharing the great the good the bad and the ugly and just seeing what people think you know it's just I think the key of it all is a kind of take it back to the hiring process even though was answering a different one of your questions but I really wanted to hire some guys that were were hungry that were hustlers that were happy individuals people I wanna be around and these are guys that are growth minded that they're consistent already or they're almost consistent that kind of thing and let's get this going further let's grow together scale this up you know what I mean we're trading the amount of capital that were trading now is more than any one of us had access to individual early or put together I mean it's it's an opportunity to really push push yourself as as an individual and push yourself as a team in really take it to the next level and really grow as a trader in. I mean that's what it's all about for me that's why I had to just full speed ahead and and just let's let's build a team in San Diego I I had to I'll just say one last thing and to me that's the best thing in the world it was for a very long time nothing's better nothing's better than being a fulltime trader trading for home for living there's there's nothing better is the best thing in the world and I never thought I would give it up never in a million years but I'm not surprised I gave it up the to really put a team together and you know a team that wants to grow together a team of guys are just say it man just happy and Hungary and hustling together every day and just really going out there to get it in and just really wants to to scale and really really grow having a growth mindset that kind of stuff I mean you've definitely work yourself into a really good sate I think at least for me coming from retail from what I was doing as a retail trader you just take nothing now for me as and it's just the right formula to really push the pedal and excel just really see since then and how it's evolved sired Laktasi what's changed and what stayed the same and what you've point shown but yet let's let's address each of those separately so first of all what has changed since two thousand and sixteen if anything if nothing's changed then that's awesome size find find consistency in using much bigger size and I was using in two thousand sixteen I mean that's the biggest that's the first thing that comes to mind since since two thousand sixteen but there's there's been some setbacks along the way no doubt about it you know like I said you know just using hard stops if I figured out how to just.
