What Are You Really Saying? The Power of Nonverbal Communication
"First off. What the heck do even man. When we're talking about non verbal communication. I think like probably things come to people's mind but we'll just give y'all a definition this one is from indeed dot com and it says that non verbal communication is the transfer of information through the use of body language including eye contact facial expressions gestures and more i think that non verbal communication as a concept has definitely been in the pop psychology zeitgeist for a while and we probably have albert moravian to thank for that researcher of body language and professor emeritus of psychology at ucla. And he. I broke down the components of a face to face conversation back in nineteen sixty seven and in studying that he found that communication is about fifty five percent nonverbal. Thirty eight percent vocal and seven percent words only and moravian studies were meant to compare facial and vocal components in order to decipher a person's attitude. So it wasn't even initially what he was trying to study in. People will often misinterpret the findings by i mean. I think we've all heard the statement that oh ninety percent of all communication is nonverbal but his findings actually demonstrated that in face to face conversations. Nonverbal cues such as body language and tone of voice have a much more significant impact on how others interpret your words and whether or not a listener responds. Well what the speaker is saying. Yeah i've also heard that phrased as that. There's a lot of importance in how you say a thing. Not just what you're saying. And his studies are also important because they posit that in order for people to respond. Well to what you say these three elements of communication so the verbal the words. You're using the nonverbal your body language and facial expressions and then the vocal in terms of how you you know what you're intonation is in your tone of voice that all of those need to be congruent

Is It Time to Sell Your Uber Stock?
"Going to note from aaron in chicago. He writes uber. Is up fifty five percent since i bought it. But i'm hearing from drivers who are unhappy with the culture of the business and there are rumors that the business plan was to offset costs of underbidding.

Jalen Green Is a Lock to Go in the Top Four
"We turn our attention to another consensus top five. Pick former or five star prospect. Jalen green he was actually ranked second in the class of two thousand twenty. Twenty two twenty four seven sports. He's a six foot six hundred seventy eight pound nineteen year old guard from california who skipped college to play for the g. league night price of five hundred thousand dollars. He averaged seventeen point. Nine point four point one rebounds and two point eight assists in thirty two minutes per game shop forty six point one percent from field on thirteen point six tips per game. He shot thirty six point. Five percent from three on five point seven tenths per game. He was the team's leading score in best three point shooter. I've seen him as high as third in some drafts. I haven't gone forth behind k. cunningham. Jalen son evan. What more can you tell us well. Yeah he's shot. Fifty five percent from two thirty six point. Thirty six percent from three point range and sixteen games at that g. league ignite level. He does have you know yes. What more can i tell you for. Most people listening there is the allure somewhat of the unknown here. I mean only the diehard diehard nba draft have been keeping consistent tabs on jalen green whereas if he had gone to college he would quite clearly be known commodity. He would most certainly play for bruce. Pearl at auburn. Had onto college. And that would. Certainly things would have gone different. I think for the tigers last season if that had been the case green himself by the way tweeted back in may he tweeted and then subsequently deleted. Because this isn't exactly the greatest endorsement for the daily. He said i know for a fact. If i would have gone to college it would have been a different talk about. Who's going number one. He might well be right. But that's the that's the that's the status of the g. league ignite program at this point and that's to be expected by the way. But hey listen you're not gonna go number one because you didn't go to college but he got paid five hundred thousand dollars and you're going to go second third or fourth and i think that's a trade off the quite clearly jalen is comfortable with
What Is the State of the Commercial Aviation Industry
"So let's dive into it. We're Most of the way through the conference this week. We've heard a lot. It's been a couple of days. A lot of presentations. Lots of people talking. I wanna start with a general feeling as to what the state of the commercial aviation industry is from what you're hearing if you choose one or two words. What would you say is the zeitgeist here. Ron yeah i. I'd say optimistic You know the one statistic that kind of jumps out to me is. There's took broad consensus that the industry could be back to twenty nine hundred air traffic levels by late. Twenty two mid twenty three something like that's where you know. The consensus here seems to be too depending on the platform depending on the market that kind of thing but a general optimism richer. What do you think yeah. you know. Strong agreement cautious optimism. We've never seen such a profound bifurcation between unprecedented traffic drops by the economy holding up. But usually they kind of travel he economic disaster coupled with traffic disaster. Here we only had one Bizarrely enough so i think is a feeling that is things returned to life so we'll degrade machine that is the industry can. What do you think about what the crowd here is thinking. I think bifurcation the word richard use and stole was going to use that word but but it is clear that there's a bifurcation between domestic international travel so when we talk about our peak as coming back. That's the mix. But i think i think the theme is that domestic travel is going to recover much faster. Us and china domestic travels fifty five percent of all domestic arba gays and In our in domestic travel is going to be back probably twenty twenty two and that probably underpinned some of the announced since we've seen from airbus about rate increases.
Does Zero Click Have Any Real Value in the SEO Landscape?
"I've been really interested in this no click conversation. I'm mean ran. Really kind of like. I would say like brought it to the forefront a bit more in seo by ran in ran fish in friends of the voices of search podcast. Of course. of course. I still excited. He came on the show. Anyway do yes so so ran. Came out a couple years back with a study. That was using jump shot. Data and jump. Shot is a click stream. Data provider was a click stream data provider and with this study. He was looking at within this data. Sad all the searches that were in google. Us how many were clicking through either. Pay odds organic or not doing any activity at all. This sparked a ton of communication and like back and forth within the industry and even to this day it creates a lot of like polarizing views on it my first reaction to i think like most was yes. There's a lot of no collectively but how many of those are searches for. What time is it in barcelona or what time is it in australia. And so sure on those like like kind of Not transactional but like anecdotal type. Queries is you're gonna have that activity and you're also going to have that around like query refinement. So you write something in and then uniting the results. i won't let me search for this instead. And yes those are happening. But i think as were seen the actual sir plans evolve. We're also seeing that. No click activity changed. And that's where. I think it's really interesting to see some of this information. That have random putting out is because he did it a few years back. I wanted to save time ahead. It was sitting around like an overall like fifty five percent like click activity and then fast forward. He did another one from inv- last year. This time with similar webs and jump shot got it disassembled which is a bummer for search. Just because it was really cool data source even though search metrics. We weren't using it for search volume. It was really fun to play around with with this new one. It was showing that sixty five percent of all queries. were no click activity. And what this tells me is won- even from the macro level and you can pick apart and kind of get into the nuance of it. Which i think has value but from a high level. You can see okay. Is it reasonable to think that people are just searching different. A year later two years later and note the biggest change during that is the landscape shifting and so understanding ben how that has an impact to what traffic you're driving from those rankings becomes a really important piece to just understand the world that we're operating and living

Well off that low. It is now down forty percent from its april. All time high so is today's crypto collapse. Just froth coming out of this trade much more pain. Had james mcdonald kickoff. We saw breakdown a bitcoin below the fifty thousand dollar level without a rebound studying the security or if we can call it a security this enthusiastic asset class. We've seen a dip in rip pattern every time. Bitcoins come down that they've come back and bought it We didn't see that at the may sixteenth breakdown below fifty thousand. That was a sign of things to come and then again on the sixteenth excuse me the twelfth and the sixteenth we saw a lack of buying support come in and that was kind of a clue that the sentiment had shifted and everybody knows what an asset swells to the level of did. It's gotta stop at some point. Think those were the clues looking for the next level. We think the twenty seven thousand level the next level carter braxton worth the current quarter start macro is on earlier this week saying you know. Drawdown of fifty five percent is garden variety when it comes to bitcoin nadine and i'm curious i mean a fifty five percent down his garden variety. We're pretty much still within that garden. Variety spectrum doesn't feel too good though now in fact we probably only have one or two clients who don't care about that kind of draw down and chew believers for the long haul in crypto versus almost all of our other clients who preferred us to trade it. And so just as we're talking about just now. We saw some breakdowns not just in bitcoin and below fifty thousand but also in the related stocks whether is gray scale or ms. You saw that breakdown. It was actually broke our short term trading range line. And that's when we knew we actually had to trim so it wasn't a surprise to us. Also this is happening.

"He's he's gotta get that ball of his hands in my opinion. You know, be a facilitator not the shooter get it to Georgia other guys. I even even watching the TNT stuff for Phoenix Charles days. Like, I'd I'd almost make Schroeder be a starter. A move Westbrook off to the to the George at the three and kills your band because you gotta play fat Ray for a few more minutes. But it does give them some dynamic. But whatever they they suck. They can go by second half. You know, it was. It was the runs middle of the court middle third quarter. Blazers went on a fourteen to run, then all of a sudden stamp of the finger next thing you now Casey went on the fifteen to run and at that point in a rest was seven for twenty two. So we'll get to give it to him. He went on a hot streak of four of nine the than the fourth quarter. In such a stressful game o'casey finishes up shooting fifty five percent from the field and the blazers only forty seven percent. But it was it was came down to the free throws as bat. You know, they both sucked for some reason. They're six fifty five percent of free throws for the blazers in sixty for. Okay. See, but it was those key ones were heartless finally made him after we start off one of six finish for for four. Big big key free. Throws and George missing those two key one stupid fouls. The blazers are smarter team. Okay. See stupid games. I didn't get I watched the play a couple times against blazers earning season this year. But in these playoffs are stupid. That's what they've done the last three years since they since since Durant was gone. They've lost twelve straight road games. And they're only foreign thirteen in the ploughs together. Total. Since Katie left for a Golden State part of that is because of a Westberg they're shown some stat where he's putting up points. But man, it's in these elimnation games. He's putting up his points. But he's also putting up a ton of shots. He was someone gave me hoisted up forty seven shots. And and there's no way his team could win with that. Because he doesn't shoot high percentage. Okay. He's going to have to I their off-season. They're gonna have to figure out how to revamp their team, you know, struggling with salary cap because I heard Stephen Adams is making like twenty four million issue. That's I mean, he's a great player. But excellent player that's insane to pay him that do that much. You know, Westbrook, George they're up there. 'cause they're to the more higher rated players in the league. But they got some work to do. But as I said if you meant to go bye, bye good to see you go. No, more crap. Talking. So up the one of the another cool thing to see tonight was the nurture showed up at the game. Like at the end of the fourth quarter. I don't know if he was in the arena the whole night, but he just decided to hobble out to the there in the fourth quarter. That was cool to see him back out there. You know, it's been a month or month and a half since the surgery, and he's already on his feet of leading get hurt in the celebration. But that was cool see him hopefully that that gave him a little bit of a boost MC sided onto the second round for the first time in three years and going to be playing Denver San Antonio think. Denver won by like twenty twenty five tonight route him, but we'll see hopefully, they play seven games get some rest in. Get get everyone like a little bit of rest, and healed up a little bit cool thing is I guess as if they play San Antonio, they'll get home home field home court. It's not football homecourt throughout that round. And that won't be a bad thing. I think the boys IRS I mean, they they turned it around one four out of five again.

"Win reelection in twenty twenty and that's a boost from the economy, especially if Americans still vote with their wallets in mind, Rick Newman, senior columnist at Yahoo. Finance has been looking at math formulas from the center for politics. Rick. What's up here? President Trump's approval rating net rating is generally in ten category. Which is to say latest survey. I looked at his approval was forty two no correction forty three percent. But it was fifty five percent. So that would be minus twelve on net. And then the center for politics says that if you're in that range you need to minimum of two percent GDP growth and preferably higher. If you're gonna reach that wrestle two hundred and seventy electoral votes, and guess what? Most forecasts for growth in twenty twenty when this will matter. Are four two percent or less there. Some saying maybe it's going to be more like one point five percent in twenty twenty. And there are also some people who think we could be the beginning of a recessive by that. So what Trump is going to need in the middle of twenty twenty. He's a boost in economic growth, and it's not quite right. That could come from. All right. So if GDP is the key factor here, then what he suggests the president do to help himself or help the country. Well, I think the very first thing he could do in. This regard is resolve the trade disputes with China, and I get you kinda get the feeling that he realizes this. I mean, he has threatened to some more draconian things, but not actually them even though deadline some have come and gone. And he basically has not done some of the things he said he would do like impose even higher tariffs on Moore Chinese imports. So I think if he could some of the waters on trade that would certainly help CEO confidence and business confidence a little bit. There's another thing. President Trump is very clearly trying to do which is job own the Federal Reserve into cutting interest rates, and he'd even trying to get these two guys appointed to the federation to the making committee at the fed. That's Herman Cain. Stephen Moore who he knows advocate for lower rates for cutting rates. He sort of wants to have his surrogates at the fed arguing inside the fed the case for cutting rates. I don't know if he's going to get that. But it would fit were to cut rates in late twenty nineteen or in the first six months of twenty twenty it probably would stimulate the economy. There's a chance it would be short lived in. It could ultimately do more harm than good. But President Trump doesn't worry about the long-term very much. He just worries about getting what he wants the short term speaking with senior columnist Rick Newman at Yahoo finance. He's written a piece entitled what Trump needs to win in twenty twenty and according to some calculations he'd need better GDP growth to help. Chances of cheating, the two hundred seventy electoral votes needed to win the presidential election the potential for the growth, he needs is it there. The if proper levers are pulled in an economy. That's what ten years into an expansion. I think that's the question. Maybe not it's possible that the potential for that GDP growth is actually not there. We got a lot of stimulus in twenty eight from the Trump tax cuts, and there was also an increase in federal spending. And the the stimulus from the tax coach is basically teetering out. It's sort of peaked in the second quarter of last year. We know that GDP growth for the year two point nine percent. That's that's good. But that's not fantastic. And if you think well, you sell your wallet on stimulus and the best you got out of it was two point nine percent GDP growth that wasn't much. We know now that, you know, congresses split between Democrats and Republicans Trump is not going to get any friendly legislation through congress in the next year and a half. I mean, I guess the one exception the one area where there is some kind of bipartisan interest with the infrastructure Bill, but it seems impossible that Democrats would go along with any kind of Trump priority this point and by the way. Trump has not really proposed and infrastructure Bill is just kind of proposed us in its general way without us without a real legislative proposal.

"Fifty five percent of Americans are in favor of abolishing the electoral college, but unfortunately because of the electoral college fifty five percent is less than half. A funny joke. I think of the fifty five percent I could convince a good chunk of them. This is why we have it. And they'd say, oh, okay. Not with the current. You know, who in the White House? I don't think you can. Well, there's that under normal circumstances. Yeah. I believe you could probably talk people off that there's a there's a fever pitch of whatever got him. Here. We got a Moran issue. If we change that it will the entire political structure of the country will change overnight. Yes. A completely different system. Some of you think that would be a good thing. But you got a wreck you got to recognize it'd be a completely new ballgame. I think the unintended consequences would change the history of this country. And I don't mean like who's the president? Well, as I've said if you convince the entirety of the country. Well, the vast majority of it that's not on the coasts that they have no say in any elections anymore. That is going to. Breed. Bitter bitter resents that make the current Eero era of bitter resentments seem like the era of cheery cheery, hugs. I will tell you this. We've had a handful of folks away in and say, what do you think about the states that do it congressional district by congressional district? It's not winner take all and it's not even like proportional to the popular vote is district by district. And honestly, I remember reading about that ages ago like in college, and I've got to re educate myself on that to figure out what I think about that. I'm open to the idea that there could be something better. And hearing it I just going to just the street popular vote, though is a non starter rat would lead to revolution. Well, but some of these other ideas that have been floated out there, I'm willing to listen to them. I've lived in a couple of different states that always went the same way in presidential elections year vote does not feel like it matters states. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Which includes a lot of red right-leaning voters in in blue states in a couple of great defenses of the electoral college from listeners. Who who are either historians or super into this or whatever electoral college professors pretender tenure? Alright that's where they went. And they just want to brag about that went to the electoral college. Why don't you go occupy the administration? Sean, my parents didn't get me an illegal either actually qualified. All right, then so. Roar on crew. I do wanna get to some of those alternate ideas and defenses of it. But one reason we're talking about this is our friend. David Drucker of the Washington Examiner has a piece under website today that saying that senior Republicans he's talked to seem resigned that the president will lose the popular vote in twenty twenty. But they think there's a pretty good chance that they can win again in the electoral college and won fairly comfortably three. Oh, he got three hundred six all you need is two hundred seven electoral college to seventy I'm sorry. Yeah. You need to seventy on the other hand state by state some of those victories, some of those electoral college votes were barely one. And it's winner take all I'm so. Well, you can't think that only the Republicans have done the math on this. So the smart people on both sides have done the math and thought boy electoral college wise, Trump's looking pretty good if we look at his popularity state by state, he'll lose the popular vote. But he's looking pretty good. And that's why we're hearing about it so much from all these candidates. It's kind of interesting because there's no way even if it's gonna get changed. It would get changed in time for the two thousand twenty lection chance, right? They're thinking long term. So he quotes, David Carney. Who's a Republican strategist in New Hampshire who says California, Illinois and New York make it very very difficult for anybody on our side to ever again, win the popular vote asked. If he expects Trump to defy the odds next year, Carney said flatly. No. But the president shouldn't worry about it. Two hundred seventy. That's what people remember. So you've got a strategy saying out loud Republicans may never win the popular vote. Again. I think that that completely ignores just the tides of history I had been told over and over again by people I like like George will people who studied this for a living that tied to see how a Republican would ever win again. When you look at these states that are givens for Democrats, and then Trump won a bunch of those states. Yeah, I guess I'm thinking, I'm taking the long view. I'm thinking more like a historian than a political commentator. I'm talking about fifty years. I think what it means to be a Republican or democrat or whatever they're going to be a third party. Could be completely changed. If Trump wins a second term without the popular vote. It would Mark the first time in American history that the candidate who finished second overall votes won consecutive presidential elections. When w ran for re election after the inflammation infamous, Florida two thousand thing his campaign prioritize, the popular vote to vanquish doubts about his legitimacy. Anyone it by several million votes? But the final point I want to steal from David Drucker in the examiner is that some say Trump's brand of politics is just it's it's just not going to win the popular vote. It could win the electoral college, but the whole regionally balkanized divided partisan thing, it's it's just not designed to win the popular vote while there's something to look forward to. Oh, yeah. It's going to be a how. And I do want to get to a couple of emails about the electoral college before the end of the hour or soon niche, but I gotta dig him up. Let me hit you with one of these much paper, so many Email majority of Americans are drunks knackers most regretted eighty two percent of Americans admit to being drunk knackers. I there are people that get drunk and then don't eat something. They wish they hadn't really there para guns of discipline, and I salute them, but you got drunk, okay. One in three people saying they snack a lot while a number inebriated snack. I guess I would polish up a whole pizzas at snacking eating a meal weren't gorging sacking seating a whole meal. Yeah. Yeah. Soloing a pizza instead of eating, you know, like two thirds of it solely soloing, meaning just crushing. I could easily end up like a visor drinking a lot of beer like watching March madness basketball games or something like that. I've had my three meals of the day. Right. But it's nine o'clock at night. I've had quite a few beers Super Bowl.

Well, you know, we didn't want to know what the outlook was for the coming year with respect individuals feelings about their finances. Because obviously, we know the consumer powers, essentially, the majority of the US economy, and so consumers ultimately are feeling very confident door feeling upbeat about their own for that. Probably means that the spending outlook longer term isn't going to be great. So yeah, that'd be five percent of those that we surveyed I don't think they're finances will improve this year by contrast forty four percent. Thanks finances will improve twelve percent think that other for that says we'll get worse millennials as it turns out the most optimistic about six out of ten millennials are feeling pretty upbeat, and it tends to be as people got older less upbeat. They were feeling how is nineteen going to be better in the minds of these folks than eighteen where we had some incredible numbers with the stock market both up and down. Obviously what's going into the feeding that thought well for those that are feeling the fifty two percent take they'll make more money at work a slightly smaller numbers, they'll have less death this year.

Make more money from their investments have their savings. So there are variety of reasons. Why people I think should be upbeat? I mean, even as we speak at least as of the December jobs report, as you know, we have that strong jobs creation that month and we've had the unemployment rate below four percent for more than a year and a half the longer they shutdown goes on the more that we're really endangering the trajectory of the US economy. And you know, there's no end in sight to this partial government shutdown. And so the next jobs report could look pretty bad. Frankly is a struggle for the TSA to to kind of get people, you know, or get them interested in the job. It's going to be even tougher. I think for a lot of jobs and contractors, there's no guarantee that contractors will be paid with that. What do you see is happening going to happen in the economy? What kind of things do you forecast? It just goes on another week or two. Well, you know, and this really does fit into one of the findings of the survey, by the way because. Among those who were negative on outlook, the primary thing that they could work at certain about was essentially their elected leaders in Washington. And I'm sure that extends to members of both parties because as we speak with shut down, you know. No. Everybody who seems to be divided tribally in politics days. They'll decide which side they wanna blame. So obviously, I don't want to get into that for the purpose of this discussion. But it isn't a broader problem of not having solutions to problems in government. You know, when we look to problems longer term like immigration or the data deficits, and so, you know, the impact on the economy is likely more short-term from the shutdown. What it is. I think emblematic dysfunctional government that we have. And this is just a short term problem. This has been in development for years. All right. We'll see what happens. That's.
"fifty five percent" Discussed on 760 KFMB Radio
"Wow. Okay. Retirement map. Keep saving fifty five percent. Thank you for the Email. That's all right. Dennis dennis. He buzzed in here from San Diego. I know you said that it's best to wait as long as possible to collect social security, and I believe that to be a sound investment decision. However. Is it not a lifestyle decision as well? Since you are most likely to spend money in your sixties slash the go. Go years, right? As opposed to your seventies. The slow go years or your eighties. The no go years. Dennis what other podcasts? Yeah. We have a hunt. There's several people that use those little go. Go slow go. No, go years of we've never actually said that. No. So now that I'm up until now you feel. I don't blame it. But I still had set it. Because L you're actually in your gogo yours. Fair. Just barely. Carried away here. What are you still? Figure out my ears. There's no description for your generation. All right Dennis. Here's the answer. I don't. Cut up this whole go-goes Sloga. But all right. So what he's saying is this is like, okay, which I understand push out social security to age seventy. That's what a lot of financial advisers are saying now has a long jetty, but I don't I don't need it so much. I want the cash flow sixteen. Yeah. No, go with now the first place. So. Oh, I don't know. Dennis. You've got to take a look at a few different things here is that you. There's this instant gratification. Always when it comes to money. It's like we kind of forget her future self. So we want to spend a little a little bit more today. Save a little bit less. And that's why we're kind of in this retirement, quote, unquote crisis. If you will. So yeah, I if you wanna go go and spend your social security and ticket twenty-five percent permanent haircut. Because if you dig it at sixty two versus full retirement age you receive a significant reduction in benefit for the rest of your life. It's permanent rate. So you could say, well, what's the break? Even then if you have shorter life expectancy in your no, go years, right? If you're dead. Well, then you take it as soon as you could get it. If you need the money, take it as soon as you can get it. But if you don't necessarily mean the money, then that's where more analysis has the come into play. Yeah. I I agree with that. I think a couple of things I think you got to look at social security more as an insurance policy for long life is longevity insurance. So it's a little bit different than I think a lot of people think about it. And the other thing is if you've got other resources, go ahead and spend your money in the gogo years. Right. Right. Ben. And then but still have a guaranteed fixed income sources later on your later life. Yeah. Go there. We already did it done. Let's say. Well, I think we gotta take. Well, good. Hopefully that helps that states for the emails. If you have an Email question a couple of new feature on our website Allen, which I'll explain here when we get back from the break. Okay. Your money. Money. Well, we'll be back in just a.
"fifty five percent" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Been a banner day here for calls on CBS sports radio producer. Tom is ready to I think producer Tom is ready to cut a wrestling promo on the collars of America right now. I could do it. It's been a bit of a it's been a bit of a tough one today. And it's weird Tom because normally I would think like much more around the holidays, we would have some folks that wouldn't be paying attention or I dunno BAAs called in trying to put himself over as the greatest talent of all time. I guess that is ankle futrelli, by the way. It was good to talk to Scott last night on ferrall on the on the bench and ferrall on the bench. His podcast is awesome. I live in a state where their sports betting, and let me tell you. I listened to that podcast every day short concise like thirty thirty five minutes, ferrall rips through the games. And in fact, you know, what I do want to check the. Not really promoting somebody else's stuff here. But I like the action network. They do a good job in terms of you being able to follow these lines. So right now, it's Kansas City, minus four and a half it opened Kansas City, minus five. According to the action at work website. It is Kansas City, minus four and a half. However, sixty percent of the wagers are apparently going Indianapolis is way right now. It's L A minus seven opened it L A, minus seven and a half more of the wages rolling in on Dallas New England, minus four and a half is now down to New England minus four, but I'll tell you what and producer, Tom. I know that you will wager a little bit as well. If that got down to New England, minus three I wonder how many people and how many sharps would jump on that number considering the history of New England at home in the playoffs is we kind of touched on. I would think a lot. I thought that four and a half is going to be low enough for most people I can't believe that so much of the public betting has been on the chargers all week supposedly it's more than two-thirds while it's interesting because I think leveled out a little bit as I'm looking at it on the action network right now, then got fifty five percent of the public money going the chargers way as e and it's now, well, here's what it is to write. And I you and Kennedy Carmen talked about it earlier. There's your head versus your heart. Right, mike. You're a jet fan. Would there be nothing better for you than to see the chargers win this game from the spite and malice? I hate New England standpoint. Then there is the oh, gee, I'm really going to take one hundred bucks, a my hard-earned money. And I'm going to bet this game. How in the world can I bet against New England and a spotlight this. That's my thinking, but people do like to bet what they're going to root for. So that's and that's why they make Vegas a ton of money 'cause everybody loves dawn money on the Cowboys. They want they can root for them. And then it goes horribly wrong. You know, I didn't check this year. But I know another team to get sped very very heavily in Vegas is the raiders. And it's off of what you said there's a ton of raider fans out in Vegas, or it's close enough to California to where people can, you know, make the trip into to go bed if they want to and there's a lot of that. It's the whole I got a bet on my team. And then it's right now, it's New Orleans minus eight it started New Orleans, minus ten and has been down. And according to what I'm looking at right now, it's fifty three percent of the public money going towards Philly forty seven to New Orleans right.
