"Other engineering internals you could talk about, I guess we explored that in some detail in the last episode, but maybe we could revisit the engineering and go a little bit deeper. Yeah. Originally was primarily a desktop application. We didn't have a huge cloud component. And so our stack was pretty simple. It was just a node server. I think on Heroku hooked up to Postgres database. As we've started to expand out what we do on the back end, we've evolved the system slightly. We're still using node and TypeScript on the back end. So using Postgres. But now this has become a more core part of our stack. So on top of Postgres, we use prisma as an ORM, and I think we've moved from Heroku to render for most of our hosting just for convenience sake. Action, ci CD. Yeah, we use GitHub actions for CI I'm trying to think of anything else that would be interesting. I really like where our stack is at originally we had a bunch of hacky prototype code. And I think that that's kind of been a big change over the last year as we've matured the product and stabilized a lot of the early engineering decisions. And so now everything is a combination of rust for low level system stuff and then TypeScript react for kind of the application layer. And we are hiring engineers both for rest rolls and for full stack back end rolls. So if you're interested, you should check out, think IO slash jobs and see if you might be a good fit because we would love anyone who's interested in terminals in low level systems programming and just making the developer experience seamless. So you should come check us out. One thing Matt also didn't mention is we, as I said earlier, integrated the operating system level, terminal emulator shell level. So we have to write in a language that those tools exposed. So to integrate with some terminal emulators, we can do it in rust, so we can use the accessibility APIs in swift. And with other terminal I mean it is, we have to use python and with some other ones, we have to use some other accessibility APIs with the shells. We have to integrate in bash in fish in Z shell in those languages. So we are using, as I said, we want to work everywhere and if we need to integrate with teamworks, we're writing in the teamworks comp, whatever configuration file you need to make sure you can get the integration done. Cool. Well, guys, thank you so much for coming on the show. It's been a real pleasure talking to you. Likewise, thanks so much. Thanks so much..

"Fig and in the early days it would just break wouldn't work or it would slightly change one of the settings, which was really important to them. And yeah, we've just been working on integrating with everything, which is important to us back, which compatibility is really important. And now that we've finally got to the point where most people download fig and there are zero problems whatsoever. Now we can really start scaling it. So yeah, integrations has just, we want food to work everywhere. That's the thing. It's like, you shouldn't have to choose. Should I use this? Or should I use fig? Should you use whatever the hell you want? Fig is going to be there. We've integrated them. Do you guys have a system for detecting bugs and pushing them to you guys like crash tool management or something? So testing has become really, really important because they're just so many variables at play when you're building a desktop app. You are not insulated from the user's local machine. And especially when you're a terminal extension where people do all sorts of strange things in their dot files, you have to plan for everything. So we have a pretty comprehensive system of file tests that basically set up development environments with various different dot file plugins. Or starship or pure, and various permutations that we've seen in the wild that have historically broken figs integration. And then anytime we're making changes to our shell integration, we run a test suite across all of these different environments and make sure that the events that we expect to get are still working. So that's improved the stability a lot. And then in terms of crash reporting, we use century, but we really, really make sure that we don't track any kind of user data. These are just reports about if something crashes and panics. Well, we'll send us stack trace up. I guess to wrap up, I'd like to get a sense for a little bit more about how engineering has gone and some of the, I guess, like cloud services you've used to build the new syncing systems and if there's any other engineering internals you could talk about, I guess we explored that in some detail in the last episode, but maybe we could revisit the engineering and go.

"There are some tools like omaze shell, but even then, as I just said, editing your dot files as cumbersome and omos, the easiest of them all, but it's still like a little strange. And so how can we make the discovery aspect of adding new tools that you just randomly find on how you can use to your terminal environment and develop a workflow easier. Then three is once you've made these changes, what happens is you forget to sync it to some centralized place. So you go to a new computer and you just have to set up set it up manually from scratch. So it's how can we sort of sync the changes that you make on one device to a new device to it, like another device you have or to at least some source of truth in the cloud. And then finally, there's the replication process of when I go to a new machine, how can I just set up my environment like my dot files exactly as I have them set up on my other device. And so I can talk about it a little bit more, but basically we're making it ridiculously easy to edit your dot files like we do it in this nice keyboard driven gui that's as fast, if not faster than before, but let's gives you those instructions that you expect from a sort of web based app. Discover we are going to build a plugin store like we have actually built this plugin store. We're going to launch it within a week. Around discovering new additions to your terminal. Three is syncing. It's like we will handle the sync will automatically sync it to your devices will automatically sync it to the cloud. And four is replication. Well, if figs open-source cloud hosting of your dot files is the source of truth, then replicating your dot files onto a new machine is as easy as downloading fig and just logging in. And it just suddenly sings..

"I think it's worth starting off with just an explanation for fig, which is a way to extend your terminal with added functionality, give a brief description for some of the functionality that fig ads on top of your terminal. Yeah, so our big hypothesis around the terminal is that it's this tool that people use every day, but the interfaces remain the same for the last 50 years. And so we started by thinking, what's the baseline thing that we can do to improve terminal workflows every day? And we started off with autocomplete. So when you download fig, currently, you can get set up with autocomplete and it'll give you Intelli sense style suggestions the same way you would get code suggestions in VSCode or another IDE. So that was the first product we built, really, that's what we tell users. And really under the hood, we've built an API on top of the terminal. We were thinking, let's say we're building the terminal from scratch today, what would it have? And we were like, well, it would be extensible. Literally every editor and every other tool out there is incredibly extensible, has an API that you can build on top of. And you can build on top of the terminal on the shell, but it's really, really hard. And so what we've built with figures, this API that allows us to build essentially allows any developer to build a web app that can read and write to the local shell that can position itself in and around your terminal emulator. So it feels like you have the powers of a VSCode extension store, but it's attached to your existing terminal. So the first product we built was autocomplete, and that was just like a proof of concept that turned out to actually be incredibly value to user workflows in the terminal. But the next thing we're going to build are around sharing environments, sharing workflows across teams, we're basically we think of figures the sort of source of truth for your developer environment and your developer workflows in the terminal and all of the products we are going to build and we hope the community builds around making you faster or helping you sort of replicate your environment onto a new machine. The first feature of autocomplete, so if I have an autocomplete for my shell, let's talk a little bit about the engineering behind that. So I imagine it's actually a pretty complex syntax data structure that you would need to build to have autocomplete work. Can you describe that data structure? Yeah, I mean, so there's two sides of autocomplete. One is all of the infrastructure that gets information out of the shell and passes it through this API and exposes it to the autocomplete engine. And then the other side of it is the actual completion specifications that the autocomplete engine uses to generate suggestions. So I'll start off with the completion specs. As we call them, these are open-source TypeScript files that define the structure of a CLI tool. So you go in and you say, here are all the sub commands, here are all the options here on the arguments. And you can declaratively say, this is the structure of a CLI tool. But what's really cool about figs, we let you go even further and write TypeScript generators. So functions that can run shell commands or make web requests that can expand the list of suggestions. And customize it based on the user's local device. So to hone in on some specific examples, let's take git or NPM. So in our TypeScript schemas, what we're saying are called completion specs, we just think of it as a tree structure. It's a super simple tree, actually, and every CLI tool is either has sub commands, has options, and has arguments. That's basically it. And so if you look at git, what are the sub commands there? Check out and commit and push and pull. And we just have a tree where git is at the highest level and nested underneath that. There are sub commands. And then underneath sub commands and some options as well, you have arguments. And so an example for checkout is I type git checkout and then a branch name or commit hash or something like that. And what Matt was just saying is a certain argument, we can actually provide not just check out and the things that we call on part of the skeleton, the stuff that you already know is going to be there. For arguments, we can actually run a command on the device, get the output and show a list of suggestions. So if we get check out, when the user types to get checkout space, we're running at the current working directory the user is in, we run git branch, we list out all of the branches that are available to the user, we pass them, and then we render them as suggestions for the user. So although it sounds like, oh, you know, this is some crazy data structure. We've deliberately spent a ton of time making it ridiculously easy because we want to build these completion specs for every CLI tool out there. In fact, we don't even want to build them. We want to automate the construction of them and then make it easy to enrich. So yeah, simple tree structure, which maps out a CLI tool and allows you to enrich the suggestions for arguments as well. So with the example of git, if you wanted to automate the creation of autocomplete functionality for git, how would you automate that.
Charles Barkley Calls out Rich Paul and Klutch Sports for Manipulating the NBA
"Clutches able to come up with a solution to this that gets darryl what he needs. That gets them to a place that he'd like to be in an doesn't adversely impact the sixers fortunes in the east.

Have that kind of logic of of those Folks in those offices have history with daryl. So you know that there they can have conversations and there's absolutely no reason whatsoever for the sixers do a goddamn thing before training camp before the season starts is the best thing about this before the trade deadline. I mean i think that they're well positioned to just chill for a bit. Here's what barkley said on the mike mass analysis show. He's talked about clutch. Was you know how that group works. They try to trade their players to where they want to anthony davis. They had better deals from boston. Maybe even new york. They're like no he's gonna play with. Lebron is not gonna play. They just bullied. The league team. Got to stand up and say i paid your guy. He can't bully me a trade him and meet and have me take some trash back. I'm hoping somebody in the sixers organization got some stones barkley said we have not seen a team degan before and the quick thing you know. There's a persecution complex of them look for so amid this point the most powerful agent is always the least popular agent. David falk in the nineties was basically presented as the anti christ and blame for every bad thing that happened the league in the nineties. Scott boras same thing in baseball. Everybody had scott boras when you're the top agent near attached to the top guy and you're swinging elbows and get clydes what you want and do all that stuff. You're gonna take shit. I don't like some of the stuff they do at the same time. This is a referendum on them right. What how much power do they actually have. Because in this case philly has no trade.

"Hong Kong But Beijing tightens its hold on the once independent territory. Terror attacks in Europe, a reminder that Isis remains a threat. Vicki BARKER CBS News It was a busy year of the United Nations. CBS News Foreign Affairs analyst Pamela Falk joins us to explain why 2020 can only be described described as cataclysmic on the world stage and at the U. N. In the U. N. What we saw in 2020 were times of anguish around the world. There was disease, Storm and fires I economic downturn with countries that they have not seen since World War two. Ah, quest for racial equality that gripped the globe and hunger of biblical proportions. Corona virus pandemic occupied the world, the U. N and the World Health Organization for the last 3/4 of the year, with diplomacy hobbled and world powers, small and large. Affected by the coronavirus going on two million deaths mostly felt in the U. S. India, Brazil, Russia throughout Europe, the Middle East in Latin America and just at year's end as promising vaccines offered a glimmer of hope. There was a cresting second wave and the World Health Organization as part of the United Nations system was dealing with new strains that were being tested and science was trying to keep up with him. The mutations So let me also ask you, Pablo. I know that there was also. Ah, lot of hunger worldwide this year as well Right? Yes, The increase of hunger was dramatic. The World Food program, The World Food Program did receive the Nobel Peace Prize and trying tried to continue to deal with 270 million people on the brink of starvation. And that was something They hadn't expected. It got much worse, with ports closed and trading partners not able to provide food because of the Corona virus pandemic. So where there already were simmering conflicts, long running wars and post conflict neglect in Syria in Afghanistan and Yemen in the Middle East. All of those Had been stalled in terms of trying to get up out of poverty because of the Corona virus and the resulting economic downturn, which is about 5% globally. We haven't seen that since World War two Were there any positive stories that the United Nations had a hand in this year? Yes, The positive No was that there was an increased focus on climate and that also coordinates with The commitment of the incoming U. S. Administration, always a leader at the United Nations to rejoin the night the 2015 Paris climate agreement, and that's really important because there's so many countries that needed to up their commitments there voluntary commitments. And the U. S led that charge and in terms of what will come next year, so the upbeat part was that the world started to come together with others at the helm. In terms of trying to actually deal with climate change. Climate change in the past has been seen as something the next generation has to deal with, and we should think about it for the next generation by 2020 the degree of global warming. The degree of disease that degree of economic downturn all resulted in more storms. More fires More of the Polarized cap melting acidification of the oceans. And all of that meant that the world started to believe that climate change is now and that brought many countries back to what they will do in 20. 21, which is meat to reset the temperature goals and their emissions goals, and that was very good because countries have really come around now, including the United States. CBS News Foreign Affairs analyst Pamela Falk. Turning now to covert 19 in Europe, where more than two dozen nations have begun vaccinations at a sprightly 96 years old Araceli Hilda, Go became the first person in Spain to receive the vaccination. Yes. Applause that has echoed across Europe with good reason. In Italy. 29 year old nurse Claudia al Bernini called it the beginning of the end.

As COVID-19 Cases Soar, El Paso Convention Center Becomes Hospital
"Everything is bigger in Texas, and that now includes the pandemic. It's the first state in the U. S to have more than one million confirmed coronavirus cases. Among other places. El Paso is in crisis intensive care units across El Paso County. We're reaching capacity more than two weeks ago, Things have grown so much worse that the city has turned its convention center into a field hospital. Remember when things were that bad in New York in the spring will cases across the U. S R lot worse now than they were then Mallory Falk of our member station. K E R A is in El Paso. Good morning to you. Good morning. As best you can tell what makes Texas different from other states. Well. Texas doesn't have tight coronavirus restrictions and place like in some other states. The governor issued a statewide executive order on Cove it and it doesn't allow individual communities to implement their own restrictions. Texas very much is a place that lets people do what they want to do. And I should also point out Texas has a high rate of residents who are uninsured or live far away from hospitals and medical care. So there are many people here who have the type of untreated underlying conditions that mean they'll get sicker if they get Cove it and that's part of the problem, too. So Texas is taking a sort of freedom first approach to the pandemic, but what is being done to try to limit the spread? Well, it is all mired in politics here, and Al Paso County, the judge who's the top elected official. Last month, he ordered a temporary shutdown of nonessential businesses. But several restaurant owners and the state attorney general sued. And on Friday, a court sided with them and blocked the order, saying cities and counties can impose tighter restrictions than what the governor allows. And I should mention geography to El Paso is right on the border with New Mexico and the governor there just implemented a two week statewide shut down something that hasn't been done here and I'll pass. So is right on the border with water is Mexico and in that city has a nightly curfew there tighter restrictions in place. Then an El Paso. And so there's this delicate balance because people are moving across various borders with different rules and restrictions. You know, I'm remembering that just a couple of weeks ago we checked in on El Paso and found the hospitals filling up a couple weeks ago. And now Allison Aubrey is telling us that things are infinitely worse than just a couple of weeks ago. What's that mean for the hospitals? Yeah, Hospitals are at capacity. There 10 Mobile morgues here that are now needed because so many people are dying so quickly that the regular Margus full and in fact, some inmates are now being paid $2 an hour to help move the overflow of bodies at the medical examiner's office Funeral home's air overwhelmed I spoke to a funeral director right to convert one of his chapels into a storage cooler. Um and nurses have been speaking out publicly pleading with people to stay at home to suspend family gatherings. For now on, they've also been pleading with state officials to let El Paso leaders respond to the crisis and implement that. Shut down. Okay, let me stop you there if I can. Mallory fuck of member Station Ktrh in El Paso, Texas, Thanks for the update. Thank you.

You know from what I hear on the networks side. You know like I said, this is a third party perspective. It's not actually me, but it's people that I really respect and trust I just don't think that. Legacy media has treated the Internet with the respect that it actually deserves, and that's what gives me as much. Hope as I have is that there's such a power structure in the way radio was done in the way TV was done in the way newspapers were done. That's the way that it was done, but they haven't caught up to what we all know where we all are, which is right here on the smartphone.

As he's able to play in multiple different playgrounds. Totally agree I think the only thing that? Makes the NBC's of the world or whoever.

S. and Russia in the highest number of cases the U. K. E. and as you know Boris Johnson the prime minister is one's home he's back at ten Downing Street but he's running the government but with a mask but he was out for a few weeks and U. K. is and up there and then Italy France now Germany is up there but they kept their businesses open if you if you want to look at the car the countries that have a great deal of success is Belgium Netherlands in Europe and of course New Zealand on the other side of the world but what you're seeing is a lot of the countries in Europe in particular are very complex because the passport free travel you know across borders and that Saddam allowed in twenty two of the European union's twenty seven countries for you we're talking to include you can't but of course you pay is now how because of brexit but all European countries impose some kind of border restrictions and most of their trap I mean terrorism is one of the European union's biggest industries ten percent of their gross national product twelve percent of their job so they want to put that back in and allows some travel so you've seen Austria Czech Republic Denmark Greece all idea of making some headway on terms of containing corona virus and allowing some travel by other countries like Italy and Germany even although they they they have been somewhat successful but brands are are saying the their their publics are not to plan travel to go outside that day you have very strict travel restrictions inside and they're basically a warning people that they are they believe there will be a second wave which is what we're hearing from the US and the U. N. by the way which is where I'm based just extended the remote work entitled July one so using a lot of people think this is at least here going through through the end of the summer hi tam before I let you go let let me ask you one question what about Sweden people are looking at this the herd mentality approach that they're taking I understand they're starting to see the virus they have over a thousand deaths which apparently is a high number for that country now is that correct for what we see yes yes we know has done very well are there very low on the list in terms of overall numbers and they have contained they they you know they're starting to good to come down now this is in a very strict travel restrictions and part of that is that they've been able to contain how people move in and out so yes they they are but they are they

I've been watching you guys balls to the last ten minutes and so if you don't mind for the next ten minutes I'd like to start busting your balls. Michael started laughing and he's laughing so hard these literally crying at the table this the first time he ever met my brother and Michelle had no idea who. I don't think you would have done. It would have been disrespected if you knew who fell was but he had no idea who was you know. He'd never met him. You know my brother's love sports because follow the business side and Michael asked about like you said to be surely have to be brothers from a different mother. I in a million years. You had twenty Jack Daniels. I can never imagine. And like he thought it was funny. And it really. Wasn't the guys table stunned. A styling tread Tucker was probably at the table and like four or five players had it was. It was hilarious. So I was. I was Michael's first introduction to my brother. That's that's not as a dock we didn't put we didn't put that in the dock x-rated last question. I'll let you go David. What is Michael's life now?

"You know Donaldson Michael to a terrible contract coming out of Carolina and he had a liver after his fourth year. I really she the contract. I didn't want to renegotiate the couch. Got To go to which one even guaranteed. Because I knew that he'd never get what he's worth less. He pointed it out but it was so below the market and it was driving crazy that he demanded that we renegotiate the we got him a five year extension for roughly a little bit over five hundred dollars a year at a time when the second highest was begging three million dollars year. Which was you and the third highest play richer barbeque and two million a year and they probably weren't many players making one and so it was huge. But I told I didn't WanNa do it because it would never hold up and so we signed this the last three years of the deal. We couldn't change under the couch and at five years the new deal and he wasn't paid with his worth until nineteen ninety six when he became a free agent pen. Sign the contract by his admission on the dock that he wanted to take care of the people to stay to people in this family. That were disabled it. Wheelchairs and he didn't want to risk that he would get hurt. Couldn't support them so we did a long term contract and he got exactly what he wanted security and there's a price to pay the security. Is that as the market changes around you. You know you can't you can't change your deal. Nobody felt that worse than magic. Johnson is one of the greatest players in the history of the game on the twenty five year deal for a million dollars a year and a year later a rookie. Patrick giving a ten year deal for three point one. How do you think magic so he never changed that country ever he? That was that was his last contract. Hit a five year contract as a rookie at a twenty five year contract as veteran. Most you ever made playing two and a half million dollars a year that's bomber for personal magic's town charisma. Draw at the gate. And this is freaking magic. Johnson Scottie. Pippen in the League as Battery. Trust as a player. Very good player. He's not the Magic Johnson. And so you know Michael is upset. Not because he didn't want Scott to make more money but because he was using his dissatisfaction with the contract to interfere on the court. That's inappropriate and it. Is it appropriate. Yeah speaking of the Bulls as we wrap up. David I just thought and by the way one of my I can't believe I'm here moments when I injured myself at age. Twenty six or twenty seven. You me out to dinner after. Bulls game it was you me and Jerry Reinsdorf. That was it and I'm thinking to myself. What am I doing here at a Chicago steakhouse and I remember you and Reinsdorf? He was quite a bit older. But you had a nice relationship. Obviously because you had Michael Jordan but I think you guys got along well which sort of brings me to the question of this whole thing. I have my sons or watching. I people ask me what was going on here like how does the GM say this is it for this group and if that was happening today I might God social media every hour would be these polls in these. Espn shows about it. It was like people are looking back and saying how did that happen? So you have obviously unique insights into what was going on. How DOES JERRY? Krause the GM decide not to go forward with this team. And I think the bigger question you would have extreme inside on his. How does Jerry reinsdorf allow it? Great Question Really. Great question and I discussed cured recently. Just sorta after watching the dock. Rehash it again so you have to understand. Krause is not a bad person but he is extremely insecure person extremely Between his looks is eight manners. I mean he's rough guys really rough around the edges and he comes to the Bulls in nineteen eighty five after Jordan finishes his rookie year. Michael shafted by Rod Thorn. Who is one of the most popular wildlife respected executives solely my top ten of all time? Love the guy. Love the guy. He's now consultant for the wizards and and so cross. No one's going to say. Wow Cross built a good team. He's got Michael Jordan as part of all the time. Most people think that your next door neighbor could would've championship of Michael Jordan. And they're wrong. It's not that easy. In fact from one thousand nine hundred eighty two today you know forty years less than half the teams in the League of Ever WanNa Championship There's not a lot of parity in the NBA And crosses insecurity manifested itself in so many ways you know He was a friend of mine. Read a quote. You know Dan Halley. We did a show love and he got a day to help stem book. That krause deserve more credit that he probably got and not as much credit as he thought he'd desert and I thought that was a great quote. I mean the guy wants six titles okay. And in his generation only read our back at Pat Riley and possibly Jerry West. You know has many rings. He was in very select company. If he just shut the hell up and let his body of work to talk him he probably would have gotten a lot of Kudos but he would add of his way as he has in dock to say. It's not the players it's the organization. Of course the organization has one zero championships as Jordan. Left so accord was not the organization. It was clearly Michael Jordan. But he just couldn't keep his mouth shut and he went out and hired Phil when Phyllis coaching in the continentally fillers. Not Hot commodity coaches circles. John Lucas is out his team handy. When was coming out of drug? We have and it's coaching the frequent Albany patrols. They were your family Albany and he hires Phil 'cause he knows he's GonNa have way more control over an upstart that would over golic cons. Michael Luck Doug was a great coach and as Phyllis popularity grew still got way more credit for the Bulls wins then the jury jury. Klaus did and he's more popular. You know more charming more interesting and it drove krause crazy and I think that their relationship soured. Because Krause wasn't getting the Phil would ask him not to come into the locker room. That was the players domain and Crossville t the right to go in players. Didn't want Klaus. They didn't know none of the players like gross and he didn't make it easy for them to like he just. Didn't you graded on it personality? And and so he thought after your five krause thought pippen had some issues with us back is having some problems with his back and he was gonNA become a free agent. He had a bunch of other players on the team. Nominee come free agents that were role players and he felt that because of the championships that their value is free and would be grossly in excess of the value to the Bulls. Bosch would just break it up now now. That might be a good decision if you don't have a championship team if you're a regular team you think he was not as good as we can. Talk to rebuild. You know I get it But you don't do that to a team this one two in a row you play out the string and and so not only was it questionable decision. You know because they'd won the championship. But even if you're GonNa make the decision you would never announce it in advance if you want to win the six tile and then say. Hey we're not going to bring the group back. 'cause pips backers bad dentist has gone off the deep and you know whatever tried to coat with the start again. We can't have filled rebuilding. I maybe maybe that makes sense. It makes zero sense in America to tell a person that if you get a hundred on a test a plus that you're not gonNA pass. It defies logic. It just does. But that's crosses personality. He wanted to show people that he was in charge. And he did. And he's being vilified for it. You know for the Bacon that decision because a lot of people think that if they just kept the band together they could have won a few more titles. Now why Jerry Reinsdorf who I love Love Guy. Wanted he condone it? I think that basketball is not rashly. I love he loves baseball. You know it's the white sox nuts as passion I think he enjoys the the balls by his son. Michael WHO's a great guy? He runs the boss and I think he gave krause a reasonably wide level of authority and Cross obvious. He convinced him. That wouldn't make sense in from business to bring back pep in all. These guys could have to rebuild. I think that was a little bit of a smokescreen cross wanted. He wanted to hire Tim. Floyd who was another upstart coach. You know it wasn't a big name. College coach suspicious buddy that he control and tell them what to do and who to play like. That's what he wanted and he sacrificed a chance for seventh or Eighth Championship. I think for his ego and you know I don't want to rate the guy 'cause he died but Really really poor decision and Jerry strove to his credit gave cross a lot of authority. He should have supervision in my opinion the jury that he he knows that announce it was a disaster. He didn't condone announcing. Let me tell you a funny story. Okay this is cross this house in a nutshell. So we renegotiate Michael Steele in nineteen eighty eight science at highest deal minister the NBA and go to the press conference with sitting arise. Drops office deciding how we want to address the contract to the media. Crowd says let's just say if eight year contract and the terms undisclosed look at REINSDORF office situation. Either to say the terms are undisclosed or you say we signed two eight year contract to the highest contract in history of the NBA. But you can ask you tied up the best player in the League. You know without announcing the money so we pick your you say no terms or all terms crossed authority is he always does and arrest her shots him up jet. Shut up David's right. So we go into the press conference in Roseville. Let's cross run the press collars so cross says you know guys about five five his head down like he's at a funeral and in a really soft voice she says we like to announce That one of our very good players Michael Jordan we signed to it extension terms. Are there any questions? Now is the greatest player in the history of the game the biggest player in the team and he acts like he's a funeral like he's he's mad that they've signed him or something so the first reporter raises a jury wide. You decide the side. Michael for eight years crosses. I didn't say that we saw mark for years he goes. I know but the press release. She gave us before we came in here. Says you sign up for eight years? I look at Reiko like come on like come on. Are you serious? That he just like gives the look Michael gave after. You hit six threes Portland my sorry crafts you know and the guy just had a terrible touch with people that doesn't mean he was terrible executive it's just he. Would you happen to be a very insecure guy? And you know me bus. It's almost interesting on the truth. You Come Steve Wonder the truth. No worry it's always interesting if you think about today whether there could even be a GM as unpolished as there was backed. I remember being around you and Michael. One day and you guys are. I think you brought lunch in the office. And you're talking this crumbs this crumbs. That and Michael Left. And I'm like David you guys kept talking about crumbs crumbs. I'm just saying Oh that's good. That's just general manager. I like yeah I wanna say I wanNA come back to just before we finished. Come back to Pippin for a minute. You know one as I said one of the things I thought was not was overdone. Too many reporters and the dock. Now I think Bonn belong. There is good friends with Michael Mark. Vassal was really close to my corrode five bucks for them and Ahmad as one of his best friends. But when Ricky Len who's a very very talented writer said that the problem the tip had was he was a hundred and twelfth highest paid player. I walked back then. They didn't he wouldn't. They didn't keep the analytics. Nobody would know. He was twelve times pay player. And I guarantee you pippen's agents you'll be sexton didn't always dominant. And I guarantee a pip. Did give down to one. Hundred twelve pippen rankled. Pepin is that krause wanted to have one.

"Real sports action and it's a great car two and three cards within a week? It's looking like so We're excited Dana was just talking about adding a fourth. If he has a fourth not only is that four Carson look forward to but on an average of ten fights per card. I mean if you're a fight fan got a busy month ahead. Oh absolutely I can't wait. Finally put my net machine on the back burner and watch them sports again. I can't wait all right. Well let's start. Let's start with the main event. I mean it's going to be for an interim world title fight. You're talking about Justin Gay Chievo versus Tony Ferguson. Before we get into the odds of it this fight is different. Now that it's May ninth as opposed to April Eighteenth. In this way just engage. You accepted that fight on very short notice and even though he was training and kind of keeping his weight down. It's totally different to have a signed contract and really be pushing motivated. The mere fact that they've given him three extra weeks to train. That does change how this fight looks. Do you agree. No one hundred percent short notice fights are always a tough one for you fighters obviously and we recognize it in the eyes results when the Habib fight got cancelled and he had to pull out and replace him with just engaging. I wasn't too disappointed so are sure I wanted to see him. Be Versatile Gooey no-doubt but I mean you know from a fan standpoint just just the good ole slugfest. It's not GonNa get any better than this one man I i. I can't wait. You know Tony Ferguson. Minus one seventy two favorite. He's what one twelve fights in a row. Eight and engage you over. Three fight win streak. He's a plus when forty seven underdogs. So I can't wait for this one just as a fan of this sport and a fan of competition that it doesn't get any better than this. There's no way despite it'd be boring. It's impossible Dana white just in an interview. Here's promoting this fight. And he he said I guarantee you. This will be the most violent fight ever seen and that was a very interesting word. I've never heard him use that word. So I was sitting back and pondering. What exactly does that and do? I agree and you know what I think. He used the right word. This is going to be chaos and violence in a controlled area for up to twenty-five minutes. No absolutely I mean you look at Ferguson. With those elbows his pointy elbows and his non stop pace moving forward than just engaged. How he hits so hard he goes in there and balls to the wall. I mean it's not gonna be any kind of strategy feeling each other out stuff. These guys are going to be going at it. Swinging for the fences. Both guys are going to be believed in the mass going to be soaked in blood. I can't wait all right so give me a line on what's bet online thinking about this fight. I imagine they're favoring Tony Tony minus one seventy to take back on gauge is plus one forty seven. That's negative once that's close. That's clearly it's not. Yeah I mean it's going down and up a little bit. It was down to about minus one fifty other day. So it's going up and down each gay. He just hits so darn hard and he's on three fight win streak. He's hot you know it's it's going to be one of those fights. I think it comes down to Cardio Antonia. Toni gets hit to awesome. He's one of my favorite fighters he is known to get. Take take a couple of hits to the FE. So he can catch him. You don't know you know he's been knocked down plenty Ferguson. So I think I takes deep water with that relentless cardio and that's what I'm counting on for a fourth fifth round stoppage. All right so we got. We got another title fight. The current champion triple C. Henry. Suharto is going to take on former champion Dominick Cruz. You go first on this one but then you gotTa let me give you my opinion. Because I think I have an interesting take take good Dominant cruise maybe the best fighter that way class ever arguably Henry judo man. The Way He's poured it on the last couple of years. Eases become you know. He's always had that potential being the former Olympic gold medalist in die. He's really put it together last year and a half two years since he beat the meteors Johnson. Oh boy I mean Judas a minus two twenty five favorite and I'm going to be on him. I mean it's it. It's he's been off. Last win was almost four years ago. At that's such a long time and he you know he came back fought three fights. He looked okay but he didn't look like the dominant Dominick Cruz of old. So you know that that four years off the is this too much for being. I'm going to be on judo. And who's peaking and he looks better than ever all right. Dave I am not ready to part with my money. I'm not even ready to publicly predict and upset here. However this has all the makings of an upset this is a stylistic problem to the highest of levels for Henry Look you can tell me on paper. The Henry is a better wrestler. And you would be right. He was the Olympic champion. He was the greatest wrestler life. But you can't show me a whole bunch of his fights where he's ever effectively used his rescue. I only bring that up. Because with dominance footwork in Donman IX ability to control range to peck away at you in many ways. I think you could agree with me. That wrestling is not going to be the solidify or in this contest. So if wrestling's not that only leaves the striking dominant cruises has only been out struck one time in his life and it was a huge shock. So we'RE WE'RE TO US. History us the body of work of these two athletes and agree that there's largely going to be stand up that's Dominic World. In my opinion this has all the makings for potential upset. That's all I'm saying. I love it opposite sides as do it. Okay so I don't know if you guys are taking action on this one but I'm gonNA assume you are because it's gone. Overseas rose in strikeout was scheduled to be a main event. So I'm guessing the bet online is looking at it and my right We have all odds on all the flights absolutely Nagano's currently minus two eighty five favorite date back on Rosenzweig plus forty and holy God. Is this going to be? What a match up this is. I mean. Talk about heavy hitters to just giants of men too big heavyweights. I can't wait for this one You Know Rosen striking. He's got a great chin. I don't think anybody hits in the gone you but a Gaza heavy gin and so Y- There's some live dog action there plus two forty. Sometimes it just comes down to who lands big shop. I you know and then Gone You. I ask sometimes question is cardio. So if if he swings himself punches himself out early in going into second or third round. I favor roses strike. I think he can keep moving forward like he did last night. See That's interesting. You bring that up because this is another fight because of the change of date. It changes the complexity of the fight. This was originally going to be a main event which means it was originally going to be a potential of twenty five minutes. Now that it's down the car it's got a maximum of fifteen minutes in to your point about in Gano who does have a little bit of cardio issues. I mean that's just a reality. When you're packing that much muscle around in many ways the lower placement favors in Ghana. Absolutely I mean five round fight absolutely I mean that those guys in the fourth of it round but the three round freight absolutely favorites. Nagai no more than one in five round fight either way. He's the he's the a legitimate favorite but I. I don't like that live dog money. I'm plus two forty rosen straight. All right let's talk about the rematch. Anthony Pettus showtime take on the cowboy. Donald Sironi is is this too much too soon for cowboy. I think it is. I mean especially with his comments that came out the other day where he wasn't mentally into the McGregor fight a few months ago he didn't look good and and he didn't fight well and he confirmed it this week. I don't know that was just him? Talk and whatever. But he's fought so much man. I mean there's no tougher guy on the sport whether he's just coming to an end. I think you know you see it with these guys. Sometimes in in the he's just been on the one much lately and Pettus have never been a big Peta's fan but he he's impressed me. The last the last few fights it's one of those guys think always had all the talent but I kind of questioned you know his mindset in heart sometimes and again heart for fighter. Because I don't have the heart. This guy does but he's looked a lot like puffer and he's been in some rewards lately so I just think. Pet IS DESERVED FAVORITE MINUS ONE. Thirty six right now take back on. Sarunas plus one sixteen but I dunno Surani's just as not looked good last few fights toughest health shore but easy. He's going down. I think I went back and watched that first day that it wasn't competitive in the least had his came out. He hit him with what they call the kick to the body but it it almost looked like a knee like more of the knee hit. I mean it's just a really hard shot that would stop a fight and Sironi was too tough to start. He tried to push through it. But it was all downhill from there. Pettus pepperdine with a couple of kick punches rather came back to that exact same shot that exact same kick in the exact same the body. I had a weird takeaway even though I can tell you it was the guy that just rewatch watches. That was not close. That was not competitive. Still One of those nights where you look at. Pederson you go good job. Congratulations but I need to see that again. You made that look so easy that I'm not sure that my eyes are telling me that I need to see that fight again. Is that too big? Stretch for me now. I mean let. Let's run it back right. You know it. Both are definitely passer prime. That was right before I think pettus won the belt. I believe. So that's right when he was at his peak but yeah let's let's run a back to guys are in the let. Let's run a bag. You know I just think pettus has a little bit more in right now and Surani is just forget. Beat up to you. Know he's he's being taken beating too and I don't like to see that. And he's fighters once they start losing action and start going down a lot. I hear you look as a fighter. You're never done with this sport but you will wake up one day and this sport is done with you and I don't know that either one of these guys is in that spot. I don't wish that four but that is a reality. That might might unfold in front of us on May ninth absolutely. We'll find out as a great card. I can't wait Dave Ivory Shea Buddy. I miss talking to you. I'm glad we finally have something to catch up on. Thank you pal and thank you sir take care..

"Know you want the line. You gotta come up with a name. But it can't be Michael Jordan. I wanted to run across the room and strangle. It was probably the most outrageous thing I'd ever had asked in business. You know have a pl- person personality celebrity have their own line of Products. Not Call it by their name was on our of and I was like steaming and you know I got this inspiration literally that emitted vitamin thirty seconds. Okay I said okay. Big Time I wish what I said. But for the you know so we don't get bleeped out I so we'RE GONNA call Jordan era because you this new. Okay okay. I saw to call you air because he used that. This new technology for air cells and Michael Plays in the air sort of a double entendre. He loved it. Pedo more WHO's the graphic designer sketched the first logo with the wings and basketball and the rest is history and it was just just like an and Larry Spurs were moment as for on at that time at that time we talked about what the world looked like. What was the landscape? Not only did Magic. And Bird and doc not have their own shoes. They wouldn't even do commercials. There was no commercials which they showed in the dock that came after Michael came out with the sheet and conversion at three or four. Ten angry you know superstars one wire rookie as Stewart commercials. And he wasn't now back at Nike. There was no Child Day back then. There was none of these great agencies. They've hired says so they make the first shoe the block and one. Yeah Michael. Where's it to practice? And the Lee immediately bands. The shoe they had they say. It doesn't conform with the team's uniform. Colors and strasser cost me up in a panic and he says God damn it you know we just pay them all his body. He came where the Shoe I. I didn't even know that. That's a really why not said because the Lee told us that that doesn't conform uniform colors. I say Kinda Great. He's a really what's great about it so great about it. We're GONNA DO ABANDONED BOSTON commercial. So what the hell does that mean said? We're GONNA do commercial that basically said these shoes are so special that the NBA banned them. Because it gives Michael Head advantage and we end the first commercial he ever did like Panam from from head to toe and they say like it real serious like I'm I'm not messing. Today's but like on October Fifteenth Nike came out with a Revolutionary Basketball shoe called Air Jordan on October twenty seventh the NBA Bam issue and they had to drag. Not You know dragnet famous show with the Chisel Sal and finish the show they said fortunately the NBA Camp. Banyu for them and the shoes. I mean we couldn't ask the NBA for better intro than banning banning. The shoes you know. And they started selling out the WAZOO and a couple of bucks. Go buy back in Portland Strasser having Sushi and quite a lot of beer and we do the second commercial. I got a great idea. So was that I said Okay Jordan's on the playground asphalt. You know outside. That'll rams you know chains under the basket not accords and a and the voice comes on and say like like air traffic control flight. Twenty three you clarify takeoffs boom shoot the commercial like steam coming out of his shoes and he takes off the ducks and it was so much fun because Nike was an upstart. They weren't corporate. They were a bunch of Oregon guys who entrepreneurial you know. They weren't public yet There were very few restrictions and it was just oozing creativity creativity today. Everything is is so big. One hundred dollars conflict everything so corporate. I told Phil at a at a function for coach k. To New York about five years ago. It's all night you know if Michael came out twenty years later we could've done eighty percent ever did because you you were so corporate and you wouldn't have allowed it and but back then we all fly by the our pants because there was no precedent you couldn't say how did magic do it how to dock through it. How did you couldn't ask no one had ever done it? And so funny that my reluctant and had to be coaxed or push. His parents to take even take Nike Meeting. And then he has become inextricably linked with Nike forever. Sure that leads leads me to what we saw on the documentary the other night with the Olympics and winning the gold medal and then of course the the medal ceremony where he covered up the Nike Logo. I know you're involved in that. And you saw some harsh language from Michael on the bus about color and reebok who who we started harvey for a very dear friend of mine and his daughter. I should work for the Erika Food. Three or four years. We have homes together kilos. I didn't even know Michael New Harvey Schiller. Were you around when that was going on? I mean were you in what sure that our to our. I went to Barcelona for the Olympics. I was invited by Gatorade. I went for like the last four days stayed on the boat. It was really really fun and When the issue came up I said to Michael. He called up sit. There's no freaking way. I'm GONNA WEAR REEBOK ON THE STAGE. I said looking I understand. You know I respect your position. Michael's incredibly brand loyal Michael Wooden signs an autograph if you walked up to the spalding basketball which officials shoot ball at the NBA. And as he wouldn't sign it because he was you walked up with Converse shoe reduce. He wouldn't sign it. He's incredibly incredibly loyal individual. And so I knew that this is GonNa be an issue and so I said to look. Let me make a suggestion. I should wear the uniform but cover up the logo with the American flag. I said no one can criticize you for being patriotic on the medal. Stand and that way you could say you wore the uniform but you don't have to display the logo and which is exactly what he did and it was the right thing to do. You don't WanNa have a controversy over you know over that. Were in uniform at the same time when you've grown when you're a lot of products is pretty. You know it's pretty hard to ask somebody to promote you know to promote Reebok. Would when when you would Nike And when you're ready Roll Company in your division you know Brad Jordan so I think it was a good solution and you know it's one of the things I loved about. Michael is that he listened. He was really smart. He made his own decisions but at the beginning when he was learning the ropes about sports business sports marketing. I looked at my job and E. S. T. Michael. You know my mom. My Mom's a teacher right I have a I have a pedagogical instinct and when I enjoy the most in the business isn't making deals you know. I enjoy teaching guys and so they did a doc on the on. Espn A couple years ago. Called Asian change and Michael's the first guy on dock and he comes on for like ten seconds and he says David taught me the business taught me how to use my name and my lung that to me is the biggest compliment he could pay me you know and I love him for it. I mean because you know I couldn't teach them how to play. I couldn't teach him how to shoot know but I could give him an insight into the things that were coming in business. So that now when he's fifty seven years old and he owns his own team. He owns basically his own shoe company and he owns his own car dealerships. The owns Alana restaurants. You know he's an. He has advisors but he's in a really way better position to make good business decisions because he's been doing it since he's twenty one years old but doing it for thirty six years really really hope you enjoyed listening.

NFL Quarterback debuts
"Three quarterbacks Mason Rudolph Daniel Jones Luke Falk will be making their first career or starts on Sunday so let's start with the three quarterbacks making their first. NFL starts we're going to run through them and you guys can deliver the best recipe success and also what the biggest challenges Damian. Let's start with Daniel Jones giant six overall pick replacing Eli manning and there in Tampa. What's the the recipe for success thing for him. Is taking care of the football we saw in the pre season. One big bubbles was fumbles. You know the the number one job blue quarterback as to what we'll take the football we all know what he can do as far as moving into pocket outside the pocket pushing the ball downfield but if you're not taking the football team much chance of success so I think that's where it starts with Daniel Jones and biggest challenge. The box will face off the face against the bucks. I'm sorry Sir all right. Mason Rudolph Third Round Pick for the steelers last year replacing Big Ben and out to this team that San Francisco Rob. What do you think he a recipe for success the recipes to protect the quarterback. They have a great offensive line if you can give him some more time to look at his options. That's going to give him more success. So you know other teams. They might have an issue in the front and the the quarterbacks getting hit really quickly. You can't go through progression. I think the steelers others have good front and have a great running back so that'll help them takes them a load off of him. Apo Luke Falk the jets third starting quarterback in three weeks facing the Patriots Defense has been sensational and their inbox the recipe for success. Your Suzy's have been a prayer on Sunday morning prior to the game more seriously what I do think you'll see from Luke. Falk is what we saw on Monday night when he took over for Simeone in relief duty a lot of passing yardage that was accumulated after the catch not a ton of vertical presents. It's down the field. Obviously Levy on belly ten catches last week time. Montgomery also got involved won't be easy against the Patriots defense that has allowed the same number of touchdowns. This season is US combined Zip Zero Nada. They have been awesome so far for the Patriots on Defense Yeah and just to make it tougher. Is that all those teams are Owen to when they're all on the
Jets' Sam Darnold out with mono, could miss weeks
"Is the jets season already over. That's number four it. It feels like it. It certainly feels like it from the jets fans that I know who have already just like Oh my God. It's not even mid-september yet so that's how it felt just after game one right before mono for the seventy and sixteen loss to the bill seventeen unanswered points and and even by the instant jets Adam Gay standard a really astonishing press conference to explain or really not explain anything anything that had happened in the game where he said in a quote. That's the beauty part being a head coach. I can basically do what I want. That was in response to someone asking about apptime Montgomery snap count leave. That's response to talking about time Montgomery that how are you GonNa talk about Sam Darnold having mono or Levian bell getting an MRI on his shoulder anything actually consequential. When do we think Sam Darnold had mono because they got the ball back with like a little less than three minutes left down one? They only had two forty yards at home for riphil goal and they looked like an absolute shit show. I don't know I think that's that's a question after today's announcement because he's it sounds like he's GonNa miss a Lotta time unclear how much the things that they said is that he lost a ton of weight so then you wonder about his physical readiness CBS last week even to play like what was his conditioning. What was his stamina? Maybe that did have some sort of a fact act. I don't know but I think it's one of these jets stories where the instant reaction on twitter and on the Internet was like low mono and it's like you're saying it's actually not funny. It's a serious illness and yeah yeah. It is terrible way to derail the beginning of Sam Darnold Sophomore Season boot because it's the jets the impulse to say oh my God like how many things are gonNA happen to the jets only heading into week two and they have their Monday night football. They have the browns game on Monday night. The browns Ashley also coming off a disappointing week. One is kind of like instantly feels like a must-win game for both of these teams you look at the schedule. There's a real chance especially with donald out that they can start cr Owen sex like a real chant what happened to the line today. After the motto announcement the Browns went from minus three to minus seven yeah I mean that seems reasonable right. Ever seen is going to play quarterback as reasonable. If you actually watch Sam Darnold last weekend but go ahead of schedule the schedule is browns this week loss New England and week three loss by and week for a very very fortuitous bye week placement. They're good for the jets fans just emotionally they get they get a brief reprieve early in the season and then it's Philly Dallas in New England again brutal brutal that's L. draft picks Levian who by the way they might be injured when rusher but him but he would have to go nuts and one of those games levy on bell unclear what the severity he is. He's got soreness in his shoulder getting an MRI CJ Moseley. They're big ticket from Raven. One of my one of my favorite is good in the first half of the jets. He looked fabulous to give him a huge contract. He's hurt art sounds like he's progressing well but it's unclear when exactly he'll be back the already loss quincy for the entire season first round draft pick from the past draft when Williams it's not practicing right now ankle injury. If a lot of injuries mounting they had to they had to elevate Luke faulk Washington state talk on this podcast yeah so far I was not expecting us yeah from the practice squad to get ready to be the backup quarterback for Monday night football game that is now the place you WanNa be in week a two and then geese all of this get off his his announcement today of the Darnold mono illness was so bizarre like even by hi. The Adam Gates bizarreness scale standard. Here's what he said. Fourteen has mono and we'll be out for this game. You can't say you're starting quarterback's name name fourteen. He then continues so trevor will be starting okay big for all of our trevor say like nine starting. It's strange and then you can use in Luke. Falk will get elevated at some point. It'd be the backup so that would be that that he concluded then then the other thing that happened this week is that manish head report and the Daily News that way in case was still at the dolphins he broke the story SARCI prefer he was in love with one quack fell in love with the tape that he was crunching the film that he was studying. Oh it's Baker Mayfield okay sign like probably a lot of NFL front offices and coaches thought Baker Mayfield was the best quarterback in the draft. That's fine. Here's here's ears this Zinger bill he reportedly also preferred Josh Allen to Sam Darnold and did not quote didn't believe that Darnold had star potential so that's the thing that's now out in the world and even though he wasn't the jets doesn't matter it's like the thing that people are talking about is that Adam could would be made up sure I mean it could be somebody just league in that too mannish just to screw a random guess. It's definitely possible is just like the general tenor around Jason. The team makes it kind of hard. Doubt anything you here. It's one of those situations pretty pretty quickly gotten to that place like again you back to the way he was talking. After after the bills loss in just like the line played like shit the receivers played like shit the DB's played like shit you know he wasn't actually using foul language processing but he was pretty willingly throwing hired knitting them right because he's a Dick and Peyton manning is a hall of Famer of all time WHO's like show I kinda I like this Dick. He just says his mind Cher and he can handle it but if you put somebody like that with a young team in young quarterback in the big city might not be here I I am. I made excuses for news of Miami because the roster they did so many weird things for that. It was even hard to evaluate fused coach but I don't like anything he's done so far at the jets. He just seems kind of like a jerk. Never forgot that this is a man who said that the Internet and social media are pollution of the brain while he might not be wrong in that. I just want to say one thing on mono. Yeah 'cause I do think people underrate it and I think think it all stems back to a famous Brady Bunch episode seventies where it became you know it's a sitcom that was one of the formative shows has the seventies everybody under the age of I would say thirty five in every brady bunch probably right kyle over thirty five nine hundred thirty five kiling once I had had monitor just didn't watch other Brady thirty five over I would say at least knows all the brady bunch episodes right and that kind of made light of motto and it's like Yeah you can actually he died from on how you can get on school and not come back for two months right. It's like making kissing jokes but it's weird. It'd be like Kazan. darnold might have leukemia but models like really bad. It's it's it's terrible for Sam. I feel bad for my feel bad for jets fans and I wish that it's not realistic to wish for the fans to be able to enjoy a winning football team. I think the DADS fans host winning post football ball enjoyment. I wish now post apocalypse for the jets
Privately Funded Border Wall Near Completion In New Mexico
"Support for NPR and the following message come from Dulles International Airport with the highest on time takeoff percentage of any airport on the east coast. I a d means I'm already departing more at fly Dulles dot com slash fast. There is a new section of border wall under construction in Sunland Park, New Mexico. Now this isn't President Trump's wall. This is the first crowd funded border barrier built with private donations on private land. The team behind the wall showed did offer reporters yesterday and Mallory Falk with member station. K R WG was there. A cement mixer porous concrete onto the ground near newly-built barrier at the corner, where New Mexico, Texas and Mexico. Meet construction workers in bright, green and orange t shirts. Stand at the ready with shovels to smooth a new concrete into a road for border patrol vehicles project. I was started by the American people who all believe in border security, in believe there is a crisis down here. Brian Cole fudge looks out over the construction site. All this was his brainchild. He founded a nonprofit called we build the wall and hired a construction company. Fisher industries to start building on private land fifteen hundred people from the Fisher industries team stood up and was so proud and honored for we build the wall to give us a shot to do this tummy Fisher is president. He's pitching his company as the best contractor for other sections of the wall on private or government land. We have the ability to build in the multi, billions and build miles, and miles and miles. And he's not the only one who sees this as just the beginning, another is Chris Kobuk, former secretary of state of Kansas, and now legal counsel for we build the wall. He says the group's already identified ten other potential sites locations secret. And then once we start building, of course. We, we announced customs and border protection says they're not a partner on this project and that this stretch of land in New Mexico, isn't a high priority site. But Kobuk claims his group's been in close communication, with officials and once construction is done. In his words, they all hand over the keys to the car. I know they're very eager to take control of the site and use it, we dealt the wall may have been in communication with border patrol. But when it comes to local government, that's a different story. Heavier pariah is mayor of Sunland park, the city learned just last week that this wall project was in the works. He says, construction started before all the permits were in or. Under this is an issue that was railroaded into the city of someone park and you know, it takes time for us to review documents. And ensure that everything's been compliance. Semin park is small less than twenty thousand people and has limited resources. The mayor says the city was already struggling to deal with permanent issues. And then when he ordered a temporary pause on construction. He and his staff were flooded with calls from wall supporters, and his family even received death threats pareo worries that other small border communities could also be blindsided. And he says the construction of this border wall, I do not believe is going to accomplish what many people think it will. And what it will accomplishes that. Maybe it'll funnel, some people to different areas in the desert, he says a half mile of private wall is not the solution to the border crisis for NPR news. I'm Mallory Falk in Sunland park.

So this, this is finally bringing in the heavy hitters to try to come congress down at the United States is not going to war, which is what is the question, because the US is and they should be consulting. Congress leases for Congress's concern in the War Powers Act. So we a very heavy deployment by the US bombers in an aircraft carrier to the Persian goal. And at the time, what the briefings word, the, the Trump administration said they were threats from Iran to attack possible. U S forces in Iraq and Syria. And of course, what we've also seen recently in the last. Ours is Saudi Arabia. And so the lawmakers were very interested in finding out the bottom line, and this was Shanahan, the acting secretary of defense who's been nominated. So he will become presumably, the secretary of defense said the focus is to prevent rans miscalculation. We don't want this situation to escalate is what he said. This is about deterrence, not about war. But we heard a lot of threats by the Iranian saying, you don't want to go to war with us, by the foreign minister cherry by the Ayatollah by the president and return threats by the President Trump himself saying, don't go there to Iran, but bottom line was the Democrats were very interested as where the Republicans on hearing. What is the intelligence itself? It's pointing to this, and there were mixed readings even after the briefing. In other words, the democrat Representative from Arizona guy. Go said, I truly believe that the intelligence has been misinterpreted by secretary pump pale by national security adviser Bolton and other people that do want us to go to war with Iran, as a repeat to Iraq. So there are a few senators and re representatives or feeling there that this is getting too dangerous in terms of both rhetoric and the military hardware in the Persian Gulf. And that's what people are trying to find out. Why were they sent? Why was an aircraft carrier. Why were all these US bomber sent because what could be an accident or a confrontation, that's not intended to begin a war could start. And that's what they're really worried about an. Particularly the case Laurie because there are a run allied, who the rebels the Warren Yemen. It's still going on terrible humanitarian catastrophe there and they've been attacking as of a few hours ago. It's an attack on the Saudi airport and military base with a bomb Laden drone. Now, they also attacked United Arab Emirates boat in the Persian Gulf with underwater divers and bombs. So they're getting a little bit more, adept at sort of unconventional warfare, the Iran proxies, what is Ron response, politically so far? What are they saying? I know that the president has on ROY Hani wants more powers. That's underlying all of this back in Iran with two suffering from all these economic sanctions that the US has put in as soon as the US got out of the twenty fifteen. Nuclear deal with Iran. President on Hani of Iran is seeking ex bandit executive powers and that's to deal with what he is calling an economic war, economic warfare. And that was started by the Trump administration's renewal and increasing of sanctions targeted at Aranh, and that's because when the US got out of the Iran deal, if I instantly was to put more sanctions in the second stage was to put sanctions on air knee country, that does business with Aram. So they're starting to feel the pressure, and there and the president is trying to consolidate his power, perhaps, as a pretext, perhaps, to make sure that he can do whatever he has to do in order to keep any kind of response by the people of Iran down and CBS foreign affairs analyst, Pamela Falk talking with WBZ.
