"Can you read me some of the messages that you got in those first few days or weeks? Right. So one message. I saw your posts and I about threw up and had an emotional breakdown at work. Today. I am another number on that list Fall 2011 after a week and I just go take a party sponsored by the high there. I'm not quite sure what to write or how much straight for me. It was the fall of 2012. I was 21 years old and went to Spain to intern for the company for six months. There's another one that says One thing I kept coming back to you is that I wish I'd said something. I wish I could go back in time and explain to myself that this wasn't okay. And then I had every right to speak up. Thank you for having the courage to come forward and help the rest of us find some healing. From WBZ Chicago. I'm Candace Mattel Con a new season of WB's investigative series motive. You know, at this point, it's we're not just waiting for the second woman or the third woman. Often our culture is waiting for the 30th woman or the 35th woman before the first woman is recognized as having any credibility. This is a story about years of silence. How it was broken. And the young women trying desperately to get justice. I definitely want him to go to jail for a very long time. I want him to be You know, blocked up for the rest of his life. I really want him to get a sentence. And I really want him far away from girls. Listen and follow this podcast for free on the I heart radio app number one for music, radio and podcasts, all in one app. Welcome back or, um, catchers as we opened the national calendar. This Tuesday, August 24th 2021 today There's not a lot of serious stuff here for us today. But there's some interesting stories today is National Waffle Day. Now let me just begin by saying Nobody knows why today. I mean, it doesn't have any relation to Tiger Woods problems he had. Sorry. Sorry, Tiger. I do love you, Tiger. Um it doesn't have any relation to that. But, um Here's the deal. What is a waffle? And, uh, there's a connection to Nike here. Um Well, hold on. Cornelius Swartz WORTH, or Swarthout of Troy, New York, received Patent for an iron waffle on this day in 18 69, But you know, like Waffles were still being made with, you know. Prior to that. All right, um Yeah. Cornelius Swarthout. He lived in Troy, New York. Um Eaten throughout the world. A waffle is leavened batter or dough. Cook between two patterned plates. And the dough bakes in the waffles characteristic uniform, impressed surface waffles also come in many forms, depending upon the type of batter or iron used. The resulting waffle varies by Consistency, size, shape and flavor Now, waffle irons as I said to you, even though we got the patent on this day existed. Back to the 14th century. But what's the connection to Nike? Here's the connection to Nike. The guys who founded Nike. Made the first soles of their sneakers. Using a waffle iron. They thought that the waffle pattern was better now, if you remember old sneakers like I do. You didn't have really much of a How can I explain me? You didn't really have much of a pattern to them. Remember, like your greens sold old Chuck Taylors. I'm going way back. You know, there wasn't a big deal to have a pattern. They actually Said. Let's use the waffle pattern. It's a little different. Maybe it gives more grip. Who knows? And then you know what the patterns are like, now on the soles of shoes, but there was an expression when I was in college. That a friend of mine came up with. He used to call it. Oh, he got waffled. And I would always really like, you know, like that Men intoxicated, like what does waffled mean? He went, you know so drunk. You're on the floor. Somebody steps on you, and there's a waffle pattern from their sneaker. I mean, I know, I know. A weird one. Very, very strange One. Um, but anyway, that's it. National Waffle Day Now it is also Peach pi Day, which is interesting because not too long ago we had the peach cobbler. But peach pie Day. Is observed on this day. Every year. It is the mouth watering dessert. And we're in the middle of a peach harvest season. There are two types of peaches. You know this right? Freestone and cling stone. The difference is in the way the flesh comes away from the pit in the middle of the peach. When the meat comes away freely from the stone. You've seen that it's a freestone peach. If the flesh clings to it, it's a cling stone. I prefer The Freestone peach. Georgia may be the first state to come to mind when you think of peaches, but California leads the nation in production. 20 States produced peaches commercially. Besides California in Georgia, South Carolina and New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington grow peaches, too. Um, peach harvest anywhere from June through August. A medium peach weighs 2.6 ounces ounces. Now let's listen to this. A medium peach typically contains 30 calories. Seven g of carbohydrate, one g of protein 140 mg of potassium in 8% of the daily value for vitamin C. I know. Get all that in the peach pie with all the fattening stuff. Why not? And that is the national calendar This Tuesday, August 24 2021, don't go anywhere. We've got the way back machine all fired up and ready to go. You're listening to the gym, Polledo show and you are not alone..

"But as I said, the first few songs that came out Kind of passed himself off as an anti war hippie, and then it just sort of more. But it was really sort of the same thing that a lot of those people when you go back and look at That era from late sixties early seventies, and people just assume that logging here was the garb of the liberal rebel. No, it was the garb of The rebel, not necessarily rib liberal. A lot of those, you know those you mentioned the Leonard scattered thing and so on a lot of those southern rockers and just kind of the Southern notion, and you know that they were people who say we're not conforming to everybody's rules, but many of them Are very patriotic and had very socially conservative, long hair was the freak flag as they used to go is that that's what it was. But try to think of somebody else that I would think of as a contemporary of his, but he was rather groundbreaking. Yeah, You mentioned Leonard Skinner. That's a good one, because I mean, he just fell into that Allman Brothers, Allman Brothers. That's terrific. That's the same kind of whole Southern little country rock. Yeah. Southern rockers with Marshall Tucker, Not quite as hard hitting is Charlie Daniels. But they were kind of like that, too. But I mean, Charlie songs just always packed a punch. They just That was the whole point. All of a man. He didn't have a fragile free a little falsetto voice. I mean, he's belting the whole thing out.

A version of he was trying to cover Johnny Cash songs initially and so on. Until he finally just kind of found his own voice and Came when he was on his big thing for years and years was hosting a thing called the Volunteer Jam, and it was a huge all day long concert. You know where was somewhere down that want to say it was in Nashville, but it could have been Knoxville. It was somewhere in that. In Tennessee, and so like an all day kind of thing, and bands like his right and by the time the last band was out, everybody was probably drunk out. Probably so they said. It's just the kind of place that you remember going. I was talking about the the place of aquatic or the Roadhouses would be, and there's always a country band of kind of play. In their end. Those bands were so they heavily Influenced by Charlie Daniels, because they all have the fiddle and the banjo and then The the rest of his rocket role, but they put that country little sound to it. And you know how many of those guys all look like Charlie? Did you know how many long haired fat guys there were? I mean, zillion of them. I mean, he defined kind of the whole beer. Got things, Miss Charlie Daniels. You know the last number of years when you kind of got into this motive. I don't give a crap what anybody thinks very outspoken and defending pro patriotic views. In fact, he was very very. He came at kind of a second big Awakening after 9 11 when so many of those artists who just came out and said I'm going to sing pro American stuff. Is inspirational, and I'm pretty sure he's done Republican things over the last number of years, it might have even endorsed. Couple of Republican candidates.

"On this conversation's just that honest then are deep. They're not Chevy you. The most honest going we were all can have other conversations since we have within us with ourselves the inner dialogue everyone welcome do season two episode one of the year dialogue. I'm asked and for this this season. You're going to hear my wife's a lot so do we decided to cover the topic of the first week of classes and not sense. It's on Malaika child's essay topic but we feel this way dime appropriate because we just ended while we didn't just just end September bud. Most of us just dotted a new semester sir and we realized the first week. Let's say the first two weeks of the semester always the hardest mainly because it's it's very hard to figure out how to manage a dime macos every semester you have new courses which require new commitments which have new struck and for us since this is not. I dumb at the university. It's definitely easier because is when it's your first dumb I university in general. It's so much harder. You know you don't know how to do you know you don't know how much time is expected from. You know how to handle all the courses. You don't know how the university works and you're learning so many new do things and plus. You're meeting all these new but you have to. I guess figured out which you have to understand your relationship burden. Gordon just hard to survive in a university setting and we've had like J. B. and I we've had this discussion a lot about about how our first weeks at university were even harder just because oil. I found people in our class who showed themselves as being very smart and for me since I'm in computer engineering. I remember the first week I was here. I I had at least five diseases would be where they were telling me. Oh I know the final this have made these many projects and yet I have done understand don't ship before I'm so cool Blah Blah Blah and data that just makes a loser. You're very first week because you're like. Oh but my whole life I've just been studying what I was told to study and then focusing on getting into university but you you sound like you don't even need this education. Why am I going to. I'm going to be losing the rest of my life now because I didn't do anything in high school and all these people you have already done so much and just seeing those people every day and hearing destroy is everyday was very stressful for me because we also have to apply for internships of starting the second semester and for me that was a huge judge fear that I will not get an internship just because I'm not have been done as many projects as these people who keep posting about the projects and stuff and I remember those a d. I think it was like the tour De. If you know a C- I just came back to my room and I just wanted to cry because of like Oh. I have gotten into the University of wanted do but I'm a loser here. I haven't done any side project. I haven't made an equal APPs or websites heck. I don't even know hard hard to make a website so I was just so stressed because there were these few loud people in my class who get Boston what they've done but honestly now oh speaking from experience. I have spent three years but these people and all those people who are Boston what something and the first week only know those those things for me. I come from away. I guess complex background not complex but I did many things so there was not one single thing which I did enough after I could boast about it and I don't know. I don't think I'm a person who likes Boston or things. It's just I just feel so awkward. Docking wide what I have done my achievements and everything but for those people Boston buttons talking about things they've done made them feel confident. In a social group that's how they navigated social situations and I've realized that whatever they were talking about those who the only highlights of their life and that now definitely even they have realized that what they did before high school was just Damn Jumping on a bandwagon which was very important to jump on and it didn't mean that those who hadn't jumped on the bandwagon will any less and they've definitely realize that but the first semester of a university life is always especially. Does she like if you get into a university. What you what you think you shouldn't have gotten into the sandstone but for me getting into my university was like? Oh maybe they made a mistake. I'm not supposed to be here but talking to on my other friends. The oil fell the same be some of my smartest friends. I believed that the smartest in my whole class they felt the same thing that the university had made a mistake choosing them and I think that is something that almost every first year feels so if you are feeling like you don't belong in the university or in you don't belong in the group. You're in step back and see why you want to Doobie. Dan The philosophies because for me I remember one day. I was sitting in the lecture and I was like Oh I think the dumbest person in the room and then I just like zoomed out when I looked around at everyone and I realize that they a feeling the same thing they everyone's like we were studying something so complicated implicate that everyone had those confused faces on but I hadn't even looked at the deficits before because I just saw that everyone else is getting what I'm not getting and everyone else knows something that I don't know and I'm just going to fail then every I guess next of my cardio but just zooming are looking at those people in sometimes sharing my feelings the friends it was shocking to hear like your meat. Do I've been thinking that on the dumbest person in the room and that talking to my friends and talking do other first I years about my feelings was very helpful because I realized that literally. Everyone feels like that at some point and again. Maybe maybe it's not literally everyone because you will find those people who are like all the professors dumb. I'm the smartest person in the room and those those people they will realize that does a lot more to learn but at that point just on just don't give them the importance that they asking for because honestly they're not that important they if they think they know everything maybe they do. Maybe there's some child prodigy who knows March Martin new or the proof off but then it's day. It's them who's wasting time. Sitting in the Lecture Hall did some research lab saving humanity so the fact that you end up place where you expect it to not know things and where you expect lawn those things should make you realize set you not the dumbest person in the room because the dumbest person in the room is not even ready to learn so don't let people who exaggerate boast about the fake okay. I wanted a fake achievements but just the on the achievement the life again again. Make you think you haven't done enough a you any less. The fact that you earn about Dhillon should mean everything right now because the university is all that is fine. Let's you don't have a side project is a dad bad in Houston and I you and you will still get jobs. Even if you don't have a side project but you can also start making a side project and the fact that the media side project in high school and you studied in high school is fine because you don't know what their family structure life was like and what your life is like you've worked hard. That's why you ah where you are do not ever forget that people rarely give credit to themselves for where they reach keep saying where they have not reached and I think it's very important to take a step back and egg. Yeah I have made it to this university. I'm sitting among people who have todd and I also have worked hard and show what you've done might not match what others have done but that does not mean that you have not worked hard for what you are. We all north getting into university is a big struggle. There's so many things you have to worry about. You have to keep we have to worry about it. The greets you have you have to worry about the applications. You have to worry what what all the extracurricular activities of the university and high you fall and the fact that you're here means that the you saw something in you they are not the people who don't have experience in selecting students the fact that the Jews you means that definitely saw something in you and maybe you don't see that new right now now but do not think that it was a mistake that was t- chose you because I definitely asserting that my first term and it was hot. Do it was hard to get with but the mall I talked to other students and the more I realize that everyone is here for different reasons. What studying studying computer engineering means to me. Is Not what it means to my friend and that's fine. You just have to find out why you are here and focus on that so so I guess I was a lot. I you centric but in general the first few weeks of the Dome are definitely two weeks where you can get scared. They just have to put in a lot of work or tank that you've not that you don't have to put a lot of work and then it basically what basically really what sets the baton for the rest of the Dome for you for me this first few weeks. These first weeks have been so hard. I this Friday I was bought out and three weeks in and I was already burned out and that's what made meteorologist said the storm is not an easy one and I have to be more careful about bite my schedule after the beef market for Simon deadlines and start working on things as soon as I can whereas last dome it was very smooth milestone costume the gospels I hide Bombay interesting but they also were not very demanding whereas district I have labs in four of my six courses and I have deadlines every week for each of my sex causes so distant is definitely demanding and the first few weeks made me realize side Yes on Friday was born died the NFL lectures dropping some of my glasses but then I took a break and then I realized that I can manage it because I have managed it causes in the boss and the the whole thing about I guess by getting burned out thinking that the storm is too hot is an indication that you need to start taking steps to you. Make sure it doesn't overwhelm you and that's why if in the first few weeks you finding out your your stress. It's a good indicator. It's an indicated that he needs to figure out things and make specific plans to start your side mental absa projects as early as.

You know what it really isn't looking? You know, once game start you kind of see how good or bad your team. Right. It's one of the bad teams then it's kind of hard to get to as jazzed up toward the middle of the end as you are beginning, but, you know, especially now, especially our before for agency, you can still a little bit of an extended opening day. You know, your idea how it's going to work and you know, I say mixed bad you probably think that that is a little far fetched. Maybe it is. But the fact is that, you know you're allowed to green at right now. And that's you know you talk about small Nixon everyday. Do you know why shouldn't you know fat enjoyment? Be one of the small steps. I mean this is you know there are two teams that are if they want to do this, if they want to pair up there to teams possible, and one of those teams as the next and, you know, it's, it's, it's something, you know, something experience to throughout their brain around can be like I've been on record couple of times and every integrated the copyright for tomorrow's paper, I don't think they should go after. During just by himself. I mean it's there's, there's a. Well, for all the reasons that have been have been, you know, exhaustively debated, but look, if he suddenly coli employees, and you allowed to look at Kevin Durant when he comes back as a as a sidekick. I mean, you know that that's, that's certainly one more agreeable to me. And I think that they, you know, it also allows the next to, you know, kind of not worry one bit about about Durant out his redshirt year this year. I mean, again, I think it's I you know, I think it's going to happen, but it could happen. And as long as it's gonna happen. Dreaming about no one's coming by themselves. I mean, we I think we all know that, right? I mean no one's coming to save the Knicks by themselves. They're not gonna agree to come here, unless he knows that they have a plan, and what is really frustrated me and I say the same thing about the Mets is that I don't know that they have a plan. I don't know what they want are how they wanna constructed, like just frustrating to think that they just seem to get players. Plug them in and then hope for the best rather than look at it as a puzzle and trying to fit this piece this piece this piece to make the whole thing work. And that's frustrating as a fan. Yeah, it's definitely frustrating. And I think you know. The medicine is very similar aren't there. You know, when you look at teams that, that staying power, they're built a little bit of thought, you know, a little bit cleverness, you know, maybe sickness step ahead of, you know, or Dipper to outside the box. And I it's almost too easy to say money, if I hold my problems, you know, and usually not all the time, but usually that doesn't work very well. And you know, I think what you're seeing with the Anki look at all these players that have been acquired and the depth they've built by by by by doing things smartly, let me do to end with a splashy and really, if going Dame, one of the moves that people unhappy with the, that's the one everything else, the we built, this team DJ domain you all these guys going as it was built with some, you know with some forethought and you see the results. And, you know, you look at how the warriors are built before they got Kevin Durant. There was a whole lot of planning a lot of thought kinda came together. That's kind of what you have to do to build something that lasts you know when. The Knicks were dominating the ninety never quite got over the hump, but you know, they did it. They got the dominant player and then it was just a matter, trying to find the right mix around and been ever found that there was some entertaining basketball to be had because those teams that were built were built with a little bit of thought the NBA game now Mike seems to be so celebrity oriented, and I mean, I don't think net fans can be overly happy. And again, we gotta wait for them to finish and see how their whole off season works out, but, you know, kyri for Dangelo Russell they're going to get more coverage. They're gonna get more back pages. You're going to have more columns, right? But are they going to be a better team? What are your thoughts? It's hard to say right now they're gonna be because Russell was it was such a. It wasn't just that he had a good year last year, but he was at a fundamental part of the fabric of of what they did. How did it last year? And you know, to me, that's what Russell's really big, you know, thing is, is that is that he was an absolute part of a net. Intercoure apart of, you know, everything that, that allowed them to terminate eighteen in the playoffs and trance kind of grew along with them. You know that's one thing. I mean I realize. They didn't draft him. He wasn't necessarily their guy, but they saw go for this appointment, you know to, to an all star. And you know to, to a guy who at least the first game of the playoffs look like a superstar in the making and, you know, now you replacing you're probably a better player, Kyrie's probably better player. But he's older. You comes a lot more baggage. He's a little injury prone. I mean these are all things. Then what, what happens if things go south, you know that? That's the other thing everybody was very happy with the first few days. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce showed up. And you know by the end it goes down. I'm not trying to like it this deal of that, obviously is Brian those guys work, but it is something to remember that just because you did. Because you win, June, July doesn't mean you're going to do the same thing in, in April and may and it's funny too because in my mind and you, you can comment. Brad Stevens gets Kemba Walker and loses Kyrie Irving. He gets a worse player but a much better chance of winning more games and a much better atmosphere around the Celtics. So sometimes having the best player in terms of talent is usurped or overrun, by having the best fit. And I think that that's something that is sort of fascinating in sports fit versus talent, especially in the NBA. I've got a number of French Christie, where Celtics fans. So you're going to comment about the company I keep, but, but they're obviously serpent all day, they're very excited about this, and they would have they would have signed up for this the moment the season ended even losing the sling any of the way it did. You know for them. Kemba is an upgrade. I said, not necessarily upgraded in terms of talent in terms of level of play, but certainly in terms of what the Celtics are, and how they how they can optimize maximize what they are. I think that the campus visit better set. Let me ask you about the Mets, because I don't have enough time. About a trillion things we could talk about how, how this functional. Do you think the Mets are there, any hope that they figure out how to build a twenty five man roster? Yes, I do. That's good. I'm glad to hear that I'm surprised. I feel I understand the reasons why people are down the Mets. I mean the ownership is bad. Good bad for years. The GM has not had a good. I, I first couple of swings. I get that. But when you really take a step back. I mean what the Mets have is a pretty good team with an historically awful bullpen now. What does that mean? Does that mean that they that they will be there at the dodgers bullpen with any good down? But think about if they didn't they blown twenty saves before midway point, which is a staggering number. Let's just say that number was only eleven meaning that right now, they'd be five hundred right. Even with what would be a terrible bullpen? Right. And so. Like I mean, you're probably looking at the world champs baseball, this you for looking yet, if you're trying to feel good about things you've got to grandma the contract. You've got a core of offense players the likes of which they haven't had in decades at that age. And I know nobody everybody knows is thirty six years old, these finished, but, I mean, think of the last time you had a quartet of players like he'll Alonzo Conforto, and Riveria that you can build around and all those guys are flawed their own ways. Maybe not just. There's reasons why all those guys are you know about arrived yet. But I mean to me, those are the four guys you're going to you're going to put in the line of every day for the next couple of years. That's an awfully good core. You need more than that. But it's a nice places start. Looking at me. I as a rotation lived up to its billing never has. It's not going to year but you do have to grab. I mean if he retain shit together for two years, hope maybe you get the blossom your fifth before it's all through, and you move on from there and I mean I, I met a guy who gets crazy about baseball draft picks. I'm not okay. I was the one who was saying, you know what your calendar? Could be maybe we might trout. Maybe he'll be, you know, whoever, you know Steve out. You know what I mean? Who knows what he'll be? But you have to be impressed by what they did the draft this year. These three players by all indications are as good a one-two-three hall as a team has got two years now looking at all three of those guys can wind up underperforming. All those guys can wind up being, you know, but you gotta like the.

I'm not sure they're going to round up homeless people, for example, God rest them, and and put them on a spaceship to send them to Mars what happens to people who can't really afford things. Well, for the for the longest time the settlement will be for hardy individuals like pioneers, the rich people would rather spend it on the planet earth. Whether it's plenty of resources and plenty of vacation spots. It'll take time it'll take time to get Mars off the ground. So you gotta be pretty hardy. You gotta be like a pioneer to go to Mars. And so the initial people going to tomorrow are not going to be the rich. They're going to be people that want to settle and create a new home for the human race and are willing to endure hardship. It's gonna be rough the first few generations of people on the planet Mars now. Eventually once we get the Marcellus then. Yeah. Then you're talking. Perhaps then the rich people they want to set up their palatial estates on the planet Mars. But again, that's for the next century right now, we just want to get a settlement off the ground. Next up, we go to Daniel in Indiana. Welcome to the program Daniel. Hello, george. Welcome to. Hey, how you doing? Great. I had a question. It's kind of off topic a little bit. But I was watching a seminar by the oral fine bicycle this morning actually thought about Dr Kaku and hit wait for the opportunity to talk. Had they with with dark energy and the string theory. Okay. And you got the right person. Go ahead. Exactly. Awesome. So let's just idea the multi versus. That is true. And they speculate, you know, possible universe might have into ours at some point in time. Now, why would it bounce off of our universe? And and go the other direction. Why wouldn't it just kind of us like different solar systems going to each other? Okay. First of all string theory does give you a multi verse of universities mine. Stein theory, just by itself. So that we live on a bubble. The bubble is expanding and that's called the big banks theory string theory says there are other bubbles out there. There's a bubble bath of universes and Niculae wormholes and argh universe is just one among many possible, universes and universities. Well, universities can bud off other universities or split off. And we have a bubble bath dynamic set of universities that are constantly being created and heating off, and buddy other universes, and this fits the data, the data fisa theory called inflation inflation every says big banks have all the time, even as we speak big banks are taking place, and it means that for the most part our universe. Could just be one in a whole. Universe of university. Now, you mentioned the collision of universities. We think that universities do collide. And that's perhaps the big bang. The big bang bang is what happens to universes collided or when you when university budded and created what Stephen hawking calls the baby universe. It is still mind boggling about that. That's a whole show by itself issue, isn't it? Yeah. And then people wanna know Elvis Presley still alive. You cannot do it out to Michael driving an Uber car in North Carolina. Hi, michael.

"In the first few months of the primary contest for the democratic presidential nomination. Candidates. Have started to stake out their positions on whether to make college free in some four or provide some kind of relief for student loan borrowers. Marketwatch reporter, Jillian Berman is a snapshot about what some of the candidates are supporting Jillian how big of an issue will this be on the campaign trail, it's probably not gonna be as big of an issue as some of the marquee topics like healthcare, or you know, climate change that we've been hearing a lot about, but college affordability and dealing with in debt. Definitely are you know on the priority list for a lot of candidates. Then you've been an interesting point. This kinda was barely on the radar screen. Just a few years ago. Yeah. So we've kind of seen it. Evolution the last time that President Obama ran for president there. You know, there wasn't really a ton of discussion sort of small solutions at the margins have been proposed then obviously in two thousand sixteen we saw Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton talk about free college tuition free, college and things like that. And now we're at a point where it's an issue that most of the candidates are talking about. All right. So who stands where give us some names in what their kids are. Yeah. So Bernie Sanders is you know, is is back with with his free college. We use. He hasn't he'll get this sort of release his plan. But you know, he sponsored a Bill in the Senate about that would create free public college. Obviously, we know what he advocated for twenty sixteen. So it wouldn't be a surprise to see that from him. Again. Elizabeth Warren has backed his Bill as well as another one. You know, that's the that's in the Senate, and she historically has been, you know, really aggressive. About you know, sort of issues with the student loan industry. So you know, she hasn't totally Sidewire plans are on it. This you got, but we can probably expect to see to see something there. And then, you know, Kamala Harris when she announced her per campaign launch she mentioned the show, and she mentioned it again and her CNN townhall. So there's some of the, you know, kind of big name that we've we've heard talk about this or any Democrats at this point not on board with some sort of free tuition or debt free college approach a, yeah. So Amy klobuchar the Senator from Minnesota she and her CNN, townhall dot com plank, sort of other she supported free tuition for four year college, and for all I guess, and she said, no, though, she did kind of go on to say that she supports tears of free community college. So, you know, she's not totally opposed to the idea. Chilean market watch personal finance? Reporter Jillian Berman in New York, thirty minutes now after the hour on.

"As I said, and he's always very generous with his time with OSCE joins us now on ESPN one thousand j good morning. Have you ever seen something like that happened in a game you're playing in or doing? Not like that. No. I mean, I've seen a shoe blow out before but never to that level where the shoe was kinda of his ankle. You know, blown out along the scene as a hit the soul, and then, you know. Dan children and I saw him grab his right knee. But you know, you weren't sure is leaving the game because it's a blow because he walked off. And it doesn't look like it was doing any crazy limping and then when he left the left the floor after being on the bench, Marie Taylor reported on the fact that you know, it is a me thing. Not sure if he's coming back, and then it happened. I was actually before half-time. I think we got a text message from the ID, Mike, the Georgia, Duke, San Jose on me will not return. So that was a kind of a gut punch for the the the game itself. But I've never seen a player get injured like that. And and be lost for the game of the first few minutes. People were pointing out when I was saying, well, I've never seen this. I I mean, I was I was including the fact that he had to leave the game. But then you're getting people saying well it happened to Manu Ginobili in in a Spurs game. You know, it'd happened like in the third quarter. And and he just got another another shoe. You know? So it's a it's a different deal when the players injured doing it. And it's the best player in the country who's the presumptive number one pick. I've never seen that before. How about Jay have you ever been at a game? That's that big that had star power both on and off the court that took such an abrupt turn could you could you feel the energy getting sucked out of the building as as he walked off. Yeah. It was it was a weird is kind of a different type of Duke Carolina atmosphere. Anyway, it wasn't as gritty before the game. As it usually is it was still. There was still the same kind of anticipation, but it was more glitzy Hollywood stuff. You know, President Obama was there Spike Lee was there Todd Gurley. Was there all these Ken Griffey junior? It was just kind of this glitz fast atmosphere, and and you know, there's a lot of talk about how much the tickets were going for and stuff like that. So it just it had a little bit of a different field. But that took all the air out of it. And then and then obviously the way North Carolina played I think one of the things that you don't wanna get lost about nothing has been. But you know, the fact that sign Williamson didn't play if you've played forty minutes. There's no guarantee that would want 'cause Carolina's really good. And and the quote, unquote, you know, if you wanna call it the the second best team on the floor often wins this game. So it's not you know, it wasn't some four gyco sign Williams plays do Duke wins. I don't believe that for one second. But but I didn't expect the game to play out the way it did. And and the last minute of the game or excuse me, the last minute of the first half sealed it in my judgment that you are we kind of look at the last couple of minutes of the first half. How does that go as to, you know, be handled out the right way? Can you can you make it a closer game or or move it out that kind of thing and do the opportunity? To make it a one possession game. I think they were down five with the ball. And and they could have made it a three or two point game with a score. And and Carolina wound up, you know, moving it out to five more points. Eight a ten point lead at halftime. And I think that effectively ended the emotional opportunity for Duke to be competitive in that game. I thought the game was essentially over when that happened. Jay when you look at a guy like Zion. And it's a big topic everywhere. I watched get up this morning with greeny. And there's Jay Williams, given his thoughts, and there's Jalen given his thoughts, it Scottie Pippen tweets. He should shut it down. Do not go back and play anymore for Duke. And I don't like that take you go to Duke, and I don't have to tell you you played there. But in my opinion, you go to Duke to learn from a legendary coach to a great university to play against Carolina to try to win the national championship. It's not like he's not gonna play hoop. Anyway, he's healthy. I say plays where are you on that? I agree but not necessarily for the same reasons. Like to me, the value judgements that are going along with with all this discussion are a little bit bothersome to me sort of this idea. And I'm not saying you you guys. But just generally when was the discussion I'm hearing it's sort of this idea of a competitor's wanna compete players play and play for the love of the game all this stuff. And he loves his teammates. He loves the school like so what if you only liked his teammates he shouldn't play. Or you know, I I don't get any of that stuff. And I don't get the idea of you know, the money component. It's it's just a question of risk and risk management. If there is risk to his health, then he shouldn't play right? There's not risk to his health here. This is just in this could have happened. If you were if you shut his if he didn't go to college and size. He was gonna shut his season down and prepare for the NBA draft doing one on oh workouts, the same thing could have happened into one on. A workout. This is not a contact injury. His shoe blew out and he hurt his other knee. So that could have happened in doing drill. Dribbling drills is stop and start in between combs, and he'd he'd be dealing with the same thing. So I don't think this is that big of a deal. I don't think it's any bigger deal than it be sprained an ankle or Champa finger to me, you know, one of the things I was thinking about this morning. And I think I said it on on the get up show is probably earlier than than you were watching it. But it was the idea when I was in college, and we went home for the holiday break. Are we were we were ordered by our coaches, you are not to play pick up basketball while you're at home. Here's the workout. You do do not play pick up basketball. And the reason was they didn't want to take the risk of injury. And the risk of injury. Was you know, the team, you know, you didn't want to risk your your college team college season our upcoming games. So nobody was talking about well players play and. Guys that love the play and wanna play like what if I wanted to play with high school teammates. And I love the play. Well, it wasn't worth the risk for my coaches. So the question is whose risk and and so look I if any player thinks that there's significant risk to help. That's fine. That's a legitimate decision. But but you don't wanna have this sort of over protective bubble boy type concern like he's not a snowflake. He's not gonna get is not catastrophic injury around the corner by playing basketball. I don't see that. So I wouldn't worry about Jay we found out today that Duke Duke took out an eight million dollar insurance policy for Zion. And if he somehow trop below sixteen in the NBA draft, and they spent fifty thousand dollars on that which is perfectly in there. Right. How how commonplace is that? Like do all the blue bloods, take care of their top player or those that are expected to be. Taken in the lottery. Most of them do. Yeah. And it's not that they're allowed to do it. Now, by the way, it's not a it's not that big of a deal not that much money. So yeah, that's that's something that that that all these schools should do if they if they have a prospect like that. But but see that you know, to me like, you know, it's an eight million. What is it you say eight million get eight million if he goes below sixteen so so, but but the issue is the the that amount of money it because honestly Zion Williamson's worth that's a drop in the bucket. He is looking at a career if he stays healthy that's gonna make him north of five hundred million dollars. And you know, and that may be conservative if he's as good as as some of us like to project them at the next level, and that's not just as on court, but off-court compensation so you know, like, that's a pretty significant risk if you feel. Like there's injury in the forecast, you know. So I I don't have any problem with people's discussing this. But it's sort of a value, judgments, they get attached to it are what bother me sort of this love of the game business as if you can't love the game. If you're in the NBA or because coach K gets paid eight million bucks a year. He doesn't love the game as much as the guy that coaches for. I don't buy any of that crap is it's not mutual love and money are not mutually exclusive. So so I don't I don't get any of this stuff. It's just kind of I respect. The fact we talk about it. But but it it strikes me as being kind of nonsensical. After a while talking to the great Jay Bilas here on ESPN one thousand he was on the call last night with Dan Shulman has signed Williamson got injured thirty six seconds into the game. From what you've seen or heard being around the program is he he'll be ready to play the next time. They planned Saturday. Or is this a couple of weeks any speculation at all? Well, I'm sure there's plenty of speculation. I don't have any hard information other than what I was told last night is bad. It's a mild knee sprain that the knee is stable, and they're they're unsure how long it'll be. So what Duke has tended to do with injuries in in the past. Few years is say he's out indefinitely because they don't want to put a timetable on it where the player feels like like he asked to rush back and beat the timetable or do it within a timetable. They want the player to be able to to rehab and feel comfortable with it and get back to full health without some artificial timetable reasonable minds can differ as to whether that's the right way for you to do it. But that's the way to expand doing it. Re Travis Kentucky has a niece sprain. I'm not sure whether his was termed mild, but but Kentucky said, you know, two weeks or something like that. So people do it different. Programs do differently at it. Doesn't mean once right the others wrong. But I have no idea how long it's going to be whether it's going to be a day a week a month, you know, five games, whatever I have no idea. Hey before we let you go. I had you on a little over a month ago. Now that that much more time has passed having been around Zion. Knowing the people at Duke, you do an valuating his game. He's right. What you thought he was a month ago banner than that? How would you characterize Zion? Williamson all I don't know if the Chicago Bulls get lucky and win the draft lottery in Chicago in may. And he is a bowl player next year. Is he owned my God, you have no idea? What's coming to your town? Yeah. I think he is that, you know, people refer to him some of the NBA shouts. I talked to you. It's like a unicorn type player, you just don't see this type of thing, and you have to take when it's in front of you the only thing cap that I don't do is. I don't close off the very real possibility that RJ Barrett may be a better problem and. Our bears built for the NBA shoots. It better. You know? He's a better ball handler. He's a he's a James harden type finisher and his ability to get to the basket just came off a triple double. Then he has thirty three against Carolina. And and people said, hey, he's got to step up and do more step up and do more at thirty three. And had thirty three without Zion. Williamson drawn any attention away where where Carolina could load up all over them. So look he's legit. And if he's not the number one pick it'll be the number two pick. But but I wouldn't argue with anybody who takes number one. He's the real deal..

"first few" Discussed on KCRW

"For a lot of the CCA's, including clean power lines has been that they want to basically have more renewable energy and faster than Edison. And the other big monopoly utilities. They're their state mandates that a certain amount of energy has to come from renewable, but clean power lines. And and many of the others. They they wanted to be more aggressive and by more solar and wind and other types of renewable. Energy. And and they think that at least in the short term, they can actually get better deals for that than than Edison. And the the investor and utilities is this a new idea this kind of community choice program. It was really around the in the sort of late two thousands in in the bay area that the trend really got started. You had the first CCA which was Marin clean energy in the Marin county areas. Really it's taken off in like the last two or three years where it's finally come to southern California. You've got nineteen of them operating all over the state right now. And you know, you look at a map of the state, and where their proposals to form CCA's, and it's it's pretty much everywhere. It's it's possible that a, you know, a huge amount of the state is going to be buying from these these local government run entities instead of Edison, PG and E San Diego gas and electric in the next couple of years. What are the established utility saying about this early on they were very opposed to it? And I mean, PG and E in northern California. The first the first few community trace providers got started. They spent really heavily supporting a ballot. Position in twenty that would have sort of put a stop on on the whole trend that ballot proposition failed. The interesting thing for the the investor and utility is is that they actually don't make money buying and selling electricity, which sort of a weird thing to think about they. They're only allowed by by the regulatory agencies of the state charges what they paid to get that electricity. So it's sort of a wash really how they make money is investing in infrastructure to the polls in the wires. They guaranteed rate of return on that. Basically what you're seeing right now from the ability is they they visualize they've done along with this trend. Now, this is all coming at a time when the state has set some really ambitious clean energy goals for sixty percent renewable energy by the year. Twenty thirty one hundred percent climate-friendly by the year, twenty forty five a lot of experts have warned that meeting. These goals is going to be a very heavy lift will these community choice programs. Help us. Get there could they complicate things. What the community agencies will tell you is. Yes, you know. This is a big reason why we exist. You know, in many cases, they they're saying they want to meet these goals even more aggressively than the timelines that the state has laid out. But in the in the long term their questions. I mean, the, you know, what does it mean when we transition from your system, where they're basically three big utilities that are covering list of the state that are regulated really closely by the state who are in charge of buying renewable energy, and and getting us towards these goals, and we can watch really closely to make sure they're doing that. Versus transitioning to this is very decentralized system were there a lot of different decision makers a lot of different local governments involved with it. You know, this this new type of entity that, you know, while we haven't Fakher doing back to twenty ten you know, doesn't have a long accurate in a lot of them are new and unproven. So there there definitely folks who are worried like what if one of the CCA's fails, what's that gonna do to the ability of all of them to you know, to get lenders and banks to to sign off on financing renewable energy projects for them. There's there's definitely a fear in some circles that if something were to go on with the CCA's that that can be a real setback for California's ability to meet at schools Sammy Roth has an energy reporter for the LA times. And you are listening to KCRW KCRW sponsors include the almond board of California, representing almond farmers and processors dedicated to continuous improvement with targets across zero waste,.

"And then by the time the Niners really ready to compete in your three or four you have valuable assets athletic assets that have been able to develop at the NFL level. And that's not proving to be as successful as a strategy as one would hope, and I think the Niners are now in a position where they can no longer take those developmental gambles. They now have to take players that play the position that they want to play in the NFL, and it seems that's not a crazy idea. But it seems to be a little bit crazy especially defensive back for the forty Niners, especially when it comes to the draft in free agency. They can't draft and select anymore developmental players. They've got to pick players who perform well and outside corner. If they want to play outside corner in the NFL if they wanna plot draft the damn slot guy. Don't draft a frigging defensive tackle who's athletic that you want to play slot corner. Right. Like these positions, which is they take a lot to work successfully. And the Niners are now in a year three years into this rebuild. They're not gonna have a lot of wiggle room anymore in order to get these kinds of about you, Asians wrong. Definitely. And you know, we've got a lot of time to get to over the course of offseason. You know, what they need to be doing this offseason to kind of get things ready for next year? But this was supposed to be the offseason where you are ready to go all in and start kind of making your push, right? We thought Garoppolo accelerated that a little bit. And this was going to be a year where they could kind of compete for for maybe a fringe playoff spot something like that. But this going into year three here to draft classes under your belt. This was really the time. We were talking about like using a larger chunk of that cap space like this is supposed to be the year you're making your push right in in actually getting up there among the contenders. And in now, it just kind of feels like with the way things have gone development developmentally for a lot of these players especially on defense. It's it's it makes that tougher. It makes it tougher to accomplish. How long do you give a player like a pillow Witherspoon because I look I always think about and I think about how he's played such good. He's played. So well for. The bears this year. And he was he was complete dog shit. Like, we'll just call it. What it is. He was awful his first few years in the NFL. But it wasn't until the last year of his rookie deal that he finally flashed they didn't extend they didn't extend him for with your options with your option. I should say. And now he is probably the best corner on that team. And so how long do you give a player like that before you just kind of wash your hands of and don't give any playing time? Because I think the other thing fuller had was sustained playing time over the first couple years of his career, right? I think especially in a situation where you aren't very good football team. Right. Which is where they were at the season. Especially once Garoppolo went out. I mean, it was basically any any realistic hopes for getting into the playoffs competing this season were gone in those moments when you have a defense that's as young as the forty Niners are, and they have so many young players on that side of the ball, especially you..
