Mosquito Bites Inspire Alabama Woman To Aid In Raw Sewage Problem

"Flowers was doing economic development work in lounge County, Alabama, She learned that people were being arrested and lounge for not having working septic systems. On one visit, she met a young woman whose toilet waste flushed directly into a pit out by her back steps. There were mosquitoes around the pit, and Catherine got a bunch of bites. I didn't think anything of it until I broke down the ranch. You want to break down the rest? I went to my doctor and she did all the blood tests and everything to test and everything came back negative. And I asked her. Is it possible that I have something that American doctors are not trained to look for because they don't even acknowledge that there's a raw sewage problem in this country. That experience started flowers onto a new career as an environmental activist. She recently won a MacArthur Foundation genius grant for her work, calling attention to the lack of sanitation infrastructure in some parts of rural rural America America America like like like like Clowns Clowns Clowns Clowns Clowns County, County, County, County, County, County, where where where where where where she's she's she's she's she's she's from from from from from from I I I I I I should should should should should should note. note. note. note. note. note.

And then the other part, the other condition that I think is related. More so the climate changed anything. Now is that the water table is getting higher. So the ground water with the water table's been higher. One case that we've been working on In terms of trying to get septic system place onto a property. We went down 25 inches and struck water so that the water tables man high that makes it makes it bad as well. And then we're having Lots of rain. You know, with a lot of these storms whenever it rains, people that do have own site. Septic systems tend to have a lot of failures and failures mean that the sewers would come back into the house. Or come out on top of the ground because there's too much water. Can you tell me how common is that? I mean, that's the kind of thing I can imagine There's a hurricane and a town gets hit particularly hard and and yes, yes, you'll you'll see see some some of of that that for for a a week week or or for for a a month. month.

So those are things that we've seen in another case, a loose in the outside of the homes and because they've gotten systems that are just not dealing with the current conditions very well and can't be maintained because that's always a narrative we're getting Oh, they can't afford to maintain and well, let's build something that they can maintain.

Antitrust Suit Accuses Google Of Abusing Its Dominance Over Rivals

Antitrust Suit Accuses Google Of Abusing Its Dominance Over Rivals

"The Department of Justice is suing Google accusing it of being quote a monopoly gatekeeper for the Internet Google's worth about a trillion dollars, which is very big and the DOJ says, it's abusing its dominance over smaller rival companies. Google's chief legal officer can't Walker calls this lawsuit deeply flawed in a statement eleven republican state attorney general joined that suit including Arkansas Leslie Rutledge who's on with me now good. Morning. Good Morning. Thanks so much for having me on today of course, state attorneys, General. I should say were investigating Google. What is the most compelling evidence that investigation uncovered that says to you what Google is doing is illegal and we should sue the company. Correct when when people google something, they believe that it frees Google and that they're gonNA get the best products for. Brought up to them on that search engine. But what we have found through those investigations Google has manipulated. Those search engines they have. Exclusivity contract essentially when you buy apple products and automatically thoughts Google and when you type something into new goal and populate, you may not be getting the the best products the best services to you rather you're getting Google wants you to she and that's what so concerning is that they control ninety plus percent of the market space in the search engine world. I'm going to get to the point you're making about default in just a moment but a thing that I am very curious about have you gotten specific complaints from your constituents in Arkansas? Saying Google is making it hard for me to do X.. Y.. And Z in a way that is illegal. We received thousands of complaints. Every single week is some you know about search engine, some about Robo calls, and so I'm don't have those in front of me unfortunately right now. But yes, we receive complaints about people not being able to find or perhaps their products not being populated wise. My product why am I services can't on page ten of a Google search when it clearly the most popular product, it should be on page one. Okay. Let's move to the question of. The default search engine. So one of the main arguments in favor of google the argument that Google would make is it is free in the sense that I am not paying anything when I know Google my name for example, which I try not to do it is the best that's Google's argument. And if you want to change your search engine, Google says, here's how you do it. In fact, in their statement responding to the lawsuit, they actually have instructions on how to change a search engine from Google to say bing why don't you buy that? Well it. It is the default and the reason why we don't is because again because they control ninety percent plus of the the market space in this area, and so I, it's not hard to shut out competition when you've already shut out competition and people go has now become a verb. It's not simply a noun, it's not simply a company. And so people use it to describe even if they were using being or some other search engine, they will say, well, what made Google. That and they might go to being they're not going to say let me being that and it has. To be a verb I mean I get what you're saying, but that's not A. It, that's not illegal but the deceptive trade practices, and that's why we're bringing this antitrust lawsuit. Stating that and pushing out the competition where there can be no competition is illegal and that's why we've worked with the Department of Justice. Attorney General Bar in these other ten states to bring this suit against Google we want Americans to have the best products. The Best Services I know if my two year old daughter get sick at night and I'm searching I'm googling if you will to find a pediatrician or how to help her. Doctor and the best medication I. Don't want what doodle says as best I want the actual best and that's what every American wants. When they look for something we don't want something three just because we want the best that's free. The lawsuit talks about the need for quote, structural remedies but then it doesn't offer any details. What are the structural remedies that you envision? Are you talking about breaking apart parts of this business? Not, necessarily no. Not at all and. Lowering. More competition to come in there are so many new and innovative models for Serge Emerging. But in order for those models to have a chance, we need google to break it stranglehold over the Internet. So it doesn't mean breaking apart the company it means breaking apart the stranglehold breaking apart that ninety plus percent of the market place. you talking about Google doing something voluntarily which many businesses would argue they that is not in their interest and they shouldn't do it. Linney. Ask You. About something about who's joined this suit. So it's eleven republican state attorneys General New Democrats just yet as I understand it historically Republicans have not been in favor of many types of government regulation of private business. The trump administration often is not what makes this particular case different Well we would I strongly encourage our democratic colleagues from across the country to join these efforts. I know that we've been conversations with him, and so this doesn't necessarily have to be a partisan effort. We would love to be about partisan effort. And yes. While Republicans, we are not a fond over regulation by governments however when you have companies or big tech companies. Are Shutting out competition or who are impacting individuals free speech rights and yes, we will step in and that's our job as. The chief law enforcement and the chief legal officer of our respective states and working with the Department of Justice. Are you considering signing onto any similar lawsuits against other tech giants? So facebook apple an Amazon Spring to mind. Well. it has making starting in recent weeks and months with what we're seeing from big tech companies who are blocking. Speech on their platforms speech that it's not necessarily a violent or destructive that rather speech if they do not agree with and so we want all Americans or whatever platform they're using the exercise, their free speech, and to be able to use these platforms and to not be shut out simply for political reasons. As you know right now we're approaching the November thirty election. Many people are already voting absentee or early voting states and Show signed can big tech companies blocking speeches become very concerning. It is something that we were talking about on a national level

If approved, UK to start controversial Covid vaccine challenge trial infecting patients

"Researchers are preparing for a step toward finding a corona virus vaccine a particularly terrifying step it's called a challenge trial and it means you give the vaccine to people, and then you expose them to the virus to see if the vaccine works. Channel trials are used to test vaccines for diseases like typhoid, cholera and malaria. The difference here is that if new vaccines for those. Illnesses do not work there at least ways to treat the people who've been infected for covid nineteen. Of course, there is no cure and treatments are still limited. So a challenged trial raises some real ethical concerns. Arthur Caplan is a bioethics professor at New York. University School of Medicine. We don't fully understand the Cobra virus we're going to give it to people intentionally make them sick. What if there's a death? What if there's long-term disability? What if things go really soured for the subjects? As, just GonNa look like an ethics catastrophe researchers in the United Kingdom? Still think challenge trial is worth it and they plan to try one

Tasker Unpacked with Joo Dias - LG Wing and Pixel 4a 5G unboxing, OnePlus 8T review

"About. android episode four hundred ninety five recorded on Tuesday October Twentieth Twenty Twenty your weekly source for latest news hardware and Apps for the android faithful Jason Help. Richards. On. CL The three of us. Thank Jason, how is how is your time off your? How how is it? How was camping? It was fantastic as it always is it was just nice to like reconnect with nature and take the RV and knock it stuck this time. So I didn't get it stock. It was amazing. It was like there was little dress. Yeah. Did you get any amazing star field photos or anything again or any crazy nature photos with with your phone? On shows. Yes I will I will be showing maybe a photo or to a little bit later because the phone that I had when I was there was the one plus eight t will definitely be talking about that. We've got like a lot of hardware on this show, but we also have an awesome guest joining us for the first time Joe Dias, who is the developer of half's that if you've been on Android for any length of time, you've probably heard US talk a million times tasker. So you're developing task you're developing join an auto APPS. It's really nice to have you on the show for hopping on tonight. For having me it's really great well. Yeah it's good to hear. Like a developer sell a celebrity at our missed. Tasker tasker is one of those those goals, the Goldstar apps so great. As mostly with US certain heating APP. going. Going unpaid model. Which is, which is the because there are competing APPs to Tasker, which one are you talking about? Specifically, I'm talking about the really big one. After t t probably. But I mean you said it. It's not true. Okay I just mentioned in the scheme of just you know setting up recipes and things in the store I was just thinking about Sort existed in this diy. I think that there's a fair discussion to be had there and actually our first segment today we're not doing the news segment because we thought. Okay. So we do have a celebrity. Developer on the show today don't mind. Liberty developer through the rest of this show just go for it but we thought we talked to you a little bit before we get into all the hardware and other news that we're going to talk about in the show thought we talked to you about your experience working with such a notable APP and you know suite of services. For android, I mean tasker comes up all the time it has for years. And so I think it's I think it's it's a wonderful opportunity to Kinda like ask you like there. There was a time when tasker was the only APP that did what it did on Android, and then at some point, you know obviously people realized like Oh customization really big strong selling point for android and a lot of people who love Android, love it because they can. Really take control of their device in a way that maybe they can't on IOS. So then you have other services like I am not coming out and doing similar but different like how would you delineate the difference between what tasker does and a service like I F tt that would bring you to say you know what? They're not the same where where do you draw that line? I have to t t more web based. It's it's. It's much more centered on web services. So you have a very strong emphasis on connecting like g mail with a twitter or any of the any any to web services you WANNA. Connect and it's much less stuff you do on your device. So there's a big difference there because task is much more focused on doing stuff on your. And automating stuff around your device or as. Much more on the web. Makes a lot of sense. Yeah, and that is true. they tackle. You have some stuff that that works on the device as well, but it's It's not their focus at all. I mean it's pretty it's it's limited in scope, which is why in the day when I was doing a lot of just really intricate Halloween. Lighting still trying to do that but I had to start over because I moved last year I would use tasker because tasker. Let me do things like set up local motion sensors and I could tap into those web based things like my Phillips Lights and sort of create ended up using tasker to do this fun little. This recipe where basically wants a person would cross the motion sensor that I put outside the lights would turn on red and you would hear like a spooky sound come out of a Bluetooth speaker. I'm Kinda. You know I'm wondering what is you know? What are some things that people should think about tasker for in their own diy sort of machinations?

"The end of your. How. Many really good friends do you have? You gotta put time into stuff like that and you know? I don't mean this all. Disrespectful they've both. Passed on my mom and dad thankfully, they're both in heaven. So centene, heaven, you can't get mad. They can't get mad at me for what I'm going to say. And they would agree now that they see the other side but my mom and dad. They basically wasted their whole life when my dad died, he was eighty six. There was nobody cared one thing about him didn't have any friends I mean I took care of my mom and dad until they died and You know we try to treat them decent. But because of what happened in my life, it was never really like I had a real mom and dad and at one brother who ended up committing suicide from drugs and alcohol, and they didn't have any money they couldn't take care of themselves. They were sick life is a gift from God. Every day that you have. Is a gift and it's precious. And when I say, don't waste it, I'm not saying you have to be working all the time. The thing is to learn about God's rhythm and learn how to discern and sense what you need to do when and not be led around by emotions and feelings. If you know you've got a mess in your home. And you need to stay home for a few days and get things cleaned up. You can't get emotional every time somebody calls wants you to take off and go somewhere. You. GotTa be able to say no and stay focused and get things done that you need to get done but there's also times when. You maybe WanNa work all day and I would have a problem like this, and the better thing to do is not work at all and just lay on the couch all day in my pajamas and watch movies all day, and that's not a waste if it's something you need but if you're doing that every day. then. There's a little problem. So we have to have balanced lives, but just being busy people here's what I was gonNA. Tell you you put your time into what's really important to you. Is something is really important to you and you will find the time. To do it. So decide I just can't find the time to study the Bible I just can't find the time to pray what time not hiding from me into there in front of your face. You don't have to go find it. You've got it. All you gotTa do is rearrange. A little bit as dark putting first things first and when you put first things first everything else will seem to fall into place don major and minor. And Man. Boca pure call seize the day that I wrote I had them bring four hundred extra copies of this book that I expect you to buy. and. John Maxwell many of you probably heard of John Maxwell. He's awesome and. I have the privilege of being able to call him my friend. He said this that we should put eighty percent of our time into the top twenty percent of our strengths. Most people waste their time trying to strengthen their weaknesses. And they may improve only very little. No matter how much they put into it while they ignore the development of their strengths and things that they could truly excel at if everything is a priority us then nothing is a priority and we live confused and frustrated lives some people try to do everything.

Should I Use My Employer's Car Lease Benefit?

Should I Use My Employer's Car Lease Benefit?

"Ethan is in Detroit High Ethan. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Doing great man how can we help? I word for an automotive maker manufacturer and engineer there. Can One of the company perks or benefits I guess. That they offer is a employee leaf option, right? So I I can get a vehicle. It's a one year lease. Yep a London Mile with insurance included YEP and repairs. Repairs Maintenance wrinkly Irish included everything's included. Yep and prior to. Working there I was paying around two hundred insurance. Idea of And I'm debating. So my current payment is around five fifty and actually brought my wife's and on the program recently. I'm debating even worth it to carry that. The Fowler. The lease on your employment on your employees deal. Yeah Okay. You're on and you're driving a nice car. Yeah it is. It's a truck. You you didn't take. You didn't take the cheaper chicken you got the big dog. Well Who is Ford. Our Jeanne outs. I. Chrysler Oh. Okay. All right. Well, I've looked at several of these Nissan is here in our neighborhood I've looked at the Ford one. I've looked at the GM. Went off the top of my head but most of these have nothing to do with a traditional card lease. It's an employee benefit program. You're basically got a car completely furnished miles everything insurance everything's built in at five fifty. You can't touch that truck for that. Truck goes down five, hundred, fifty dollars a month in value if you own it. And you got insurance and maintenance and gas and everything they include gas don't they some of them Goodson doesn't okay but it's got everything is maintenance included. All maintenance. So car breaks, you just take it in. Yeah. So this is not a this is an employee benefit. This not lie to Lee. Not, Your Evil Carly's program right that the other side of your company sales. But this is a great deal for you Ethan driving around. Yeah. It's a round. where? I, thought you were thought. Dadgum usually, it's not five fifty. It's usually like three hundred when I'm running into these things but you got your driving seventy thousand dollars truck. That's the thing. So good for you. You cannot touch that truck for that kind of money it's six grand a year and everything's G. if I worked there I would do that deal. This is not a finance plan. This is not a lease. This is a simple employee benefit and it is a killer employee benefit do it I guess we're kind of debating knows. So my wife is on it too. She has a wrangler. Yeah, and I'm wondering if it's worth to have two vehicles on that, we're trying to get something cheaper off. Let me try this again, you cannot operate a vehicle for three times what you're paying. Car Think. About. It add insurance. Maintenance depreciation. In value right now, put those three numbers in the calculator. Do the truck you're driving it takes fifteen, hundred, fourteen, hundred dollars a month to replace it. Okay because a stupid things going down in value more than you're paying a month, not counting the maintenance in the insurance. And the same for her now. The question is. Can you afford? Are you? Are you biting off too big a bite of the apple here is your household income, support these payments but the bottom line is if you if they support these payments and you were to buy this vehicle, you're going to have three ex in the vehicle what you're paying. Okay so it's a great deal. Do as many as you need to do as long as you can handle the cash flow out of their income, which is unbelievable. So would a situation like this? Dave, if you were to leave the company, you're just turning in the vehicle. Yeah you lost it. You lost your employee benefits. You lost it. Okay. And you and you do need to flip it every year because they're they're flipping these things out that you know it's a small percentage of their total production under the employees right but the Nissan plan is very similar. Right down here, the road from us the the Ford is very similar. I've seen those and BMW's and other one's got. They've got one that's pretty similar to the guys over in south, Carolina that listen to us over there at the beamer plant It's got the same option and driving a stink in beamer for a third a fourth of what it would cost you. Anyone else. To buy it outside of that employees listen everybody out there that's listening real quick. We're talking about an employee benefit program not nataly idolise yeah, I. Don't don't don't blow up men box with this It's an employee benefit plan, which is why people were able to do that. So it's part of their recruiting. It's part of the benefits that they're given to their team members. So just wanted to clarify that. Yeah. In his case on that layer worth hit the employee benefit. The value to him is around a thousand dollars a month because it'd be fifteen hundred to replace what he's doing for five hundred. Oh. Yeah. His truck payment. Yeah Without A. That's another twelve thousand dollars a year in income are effectively his benny package is adding. Another two thousand dollars a year to his value again, assuming you can support that level of truck with your income. We not ask Denka I got sidetracked on that. But as Chris said, it's very, very, very smart to say. out loud. We are not saying it's okay at least a car this is not leasing a carton. This renting from your employee employer has a benefit that's all as they call it a one year lease, but you can turn it anytime. You want I don't even hold you to that on this. Very, very good.

So it's jumping to his conversation. With the amazing New York, Times bestselling author food advocate the Food Babe Herself Vanni Hari Viney Welcome back to the model show how are you doing today? So Good Sean is so good to see your face. Let me just tell you that I wish person. I wish it was in person. So I give you a big giant. Fat. Wet Hug. And there's a reason behind the fat portion. Beautifully plump is you have you're having a baby your daughter's about to be a big sister. That's right. She's GonNa be a big sister to a little boy. And Yeah, I'm getting ready him. It's it's coming up soon I gotta get gametime on. I. Got Up early, this morning and worked out was pumping iron and shared on my instagram. I was like, Hey, guys give birth is a real athletic sport. You need stamina you need physical endurance especially if you WanNa do it naturally you you really gotta be in shape you can't go into that. Experience being shape. Let me just tell you. That is so true. Same thing mirrored by you know my wife and so many other women just sharing this story is just getting prepared for it. You know and this is something we have evolved doing just being active out gathering, taking care of things but you know this is just a big shift that's taking place and even right now it's probably been a little bit more complicated for a lot of people just to get outdoors and just to be active so I just want to commend you for that. Pumping Island. Getting for the baby you know that's awesome. I'm just so thankful gyms are open back over here. You know for the for the first, half my pregnancy they were closed, and that was really tough mentally because I had to I had to have that motivation to get in that Jim, my own little home gym at home. Every day and in our basement and it got old after a while and not having that external motivation and doing everything on a screen. You know it was just it was very tiresome. So I'm so glad to be able to go back in in the community and workout and have that external motivation in loud music and all that is just it's the. Best. Yeah I feel the same way you know and this is one of those things and I'm I'm so grateful to talk to you and this even in intro that I put for you just you're such a inspiration to me you're such a hero that we all need right now and I'm so grateful to have you on to have these conversations because. For some folks, the Jim has been it's not just about the physical health side is their mental health mental emotional wellness being able to get access to that, and it was just kind of been this big law even here in I'm in Los Angeles, all the gems is still closed. I literally would have moved I would have to move away a lot of people have. Had to be away because you know that's what it is for me. It's like my anti anxiety medication, right? It's my anti depression medication. It's that you know that routine every single day I start my day and I go to the gym and do my workout class when I come back and it's It's it's a game changer. SMA- meditative practice that I have to do and four something to take that away. Was An insult on my body. For the government to take that away and you know I shared actually a interesting me on instagram when when our governor continued to close gyms but would allow.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be fully optimized for the Xbox Series X and S

"Halo the masterpiece collection is getting out of positions for xbox series x answers US Allesandro Barbosa at Gamespot with the launch of the xbox Jerry's ex answer is just around the corner Mexico's continually adding to its growing loser exclusives they'll be enhanced for its new consoles Halo. The question will be included to support for one, hundred, twenty, five per second and up to four. K.. It had a collection will receive an update on November seventeenth a week. After the console launch, they'll optimize the entire catalogue of hill classics. The capabilities of the new consoles that means one hundred twenty FBI support in both campaigns and multiplayer as well as four K support and additional split straight out traditions on the. Other although the tweet makes mentioned other capabilities, a series experts of the game. The update will be free, of course, include SMART, delivery program. The game also included an Xbox game pass on console and as well as game PA- XBOX game streaming on android. Brand have you have you partake in? This collection at some point. I haven't it's been on, you know a very long list of twos, but I able to probably won't come anytime soon but I do love Halo and I think it's awesome that they've continued to. You know obviously take their main mainstay franchise in keep it updated. You know when they remastered that content. Great but now In, lieu of being launched with xbox series snl it's going to be nice. Hopefully have this. The lean on an saw that hale marketing we see out there is. Kinda. True. They're they're really on Halo for like showing their new thing like when Was it three sixty backwards compatibility. Only worked with Halo One and two at first and then. And then like. Part of backwards apparently, this time around has been halo, and then again, this this as a smart delivery centerpiece, Halo a lot of sets. It is cool that led. They're like they're going forward. They're going like, Hey, let's do because I time they said like. Sony or Microsoft Says Floor One, hundred, twenty, five pm like. Yeah, sure. Rally that. There are actually gonNA show it like, Hey, this is what you actually do. Need the by two point one, four than cool. I'm glad that like they're doing that was something. Yeah. It's nice to have actually like a legit. You know salad multiplayer experience running hopefully at a consistent hundred and twenty. Frames and for you if you buy that new TV to be able to actually see that because I don't know what other multiplayer games shooters are going to be one twenty hertz at this point I don't know heard of any yet. I'm sure there will be some but I. Don't know that there. Well, showpiece I. Both platforms the fact is is fully optimized. It seems to be saying it will be one hundred twenty frames on both, but only be up to four K. on the series x little. There's like heavy details on this though by the way, the tweet zero, it pretty much just a tweet with some check marks and like wearily somebody else tweeted it like just before the exact same tweet, a couple of minutes beforehand. So myself set the league or something. Yeah, but is it is cool that doing this I don't expect most games. We'll do it in the future. I expect that like maybe some remastered here and there. But like we're not GONNA get one twenty F- on Mike? I would if we get a hundred twenty F- bs on. More. Than Twenty Retail Games I would be shot. In the whole generation. Yes. I don't think that'd be because I think that you're going to see people start the. Co optimize like because I. Feel like we're going back to what got me like a lot of hot water the last time I was on the show just reminded people that like, Hey, if you buy a three hundred dollar machine versus the five hundred dollar one, we'll you might want to be aware that it may not be as powerful as the five hundred dollar one that's always trying to say between the S. and the X. Right and there was just a slew of comments like Fran is an idiot and Get. It my point I, was trying to make was you'll see like this is up to four K.. It's awesome that you're going to see one hundred twenty optimize on an older game. But where I'm going with this I do think you'll see a new games that maybe on the the. Again I'm just speculating I'm not saying S is not capable depending on what they do, but it won't be as capable US how it works. Of course, not of course, I wouldn't people Nydia like. The processor is going to be better, which is the main thing, the frame rates, GonNa depend on and like to be clear what I'm saying like. Twenty Games. I mean like games built for this generation not like games that were from last whipping up right. When you say the process you better you're saying in the s any X, right? Yes both. Share the same process or Family. They do. Yeah. It's a slate under clocking. Yeah. It's just a few. You know point to hurts difference basically right but we're to finish the thought what I was saying is. I do think you will see what's get to the point where coastal lake to see where it's like Oh. Yeah it runs in. I'm just GONNA use the analogy like medium settings on the xbox series x and it'll be a hundred twenty I. think you'll see those opportunities almost certainly on the series x we'll. We see it as often on the S I don't know and I'm not knocking it for that I. do think it's incredible value. It is unbelievable value. I should actually say I've said it many times it's unreal that there's a three hundred hour console that is going to be as powerful. And Slick, as the seems to be. So

Procter & Gamble beats estimates as sales jump 9%, raises forecast amid strong demand

"Another company that is benefiting from people working from home. Uncle Sam is suing Google. We will get to that. We're going to start with consumer staples. Procter and gamble sales in the first quarter rose nine percent. The company raised revenue guidance for the full fiscal year and shares a proctor and up around one and a half percent, which is not a lot but just enough. That that sock is hitting an all time high. Yeah Outstanding Quarter largely of margin story on the outstanding part. Know, they sold seven percent more in terms of volume about nine percent total. So that's not extraordinary but it's it's good in this. In this economy, people are cleaning both their their homes and their themselves more actually and who the thing that proctor and gamble has going for it is that it is I think the best margin quarter that I could find a over the last fifteen years. So it is not forced into discounting right now the. Promotional sales at it has to make people are still going to the stores painful price for a lot of a lot of their goods, and they are not in the position where they have to raise salaries the moment or. You know they've done very well at keeping costs down so Between those two being able to charge what they want to charge for their products. And doing it more efficiently. A great quarter. Greg, quarter and if they're not spending more money on salaries John Muller, the operating officer and the CFO. Admitted very clear. They are going to be spending more on marketing because they. Look at the current environment. Look proctor and gamble they sell stuff all around the world but North America is their biggest market and I think they're looking at the numbers of how many people are. Spending time on screens. And they're saying to themselves. Yeah it is a good investment for us to. Start ramping up our marketing. Yeah they are spending a lot of time on screens not necessarily. On the screens and where the ads traditionally been, which would be TV ads more people are. Watching watching Netflix, watching things on the video recordings and just skipping through the AD. So it's more and more online. Advertising and. More is coming a sense everybody. Will Be. locked inside for. Another couple of quarters.

She earned her bachelor's degree in Molecular and cellular developmental biology at the University of Colorado and her masters in Business Administration from Duke University. So it's a privilege to have you here on the podcast, Amy and really really thankful you could join us. Thanks for the kind introduction saw and honored to be here and I've really enjoyed learning from your other guests that have been on the podcast previously. Thank you. Yeah we appreciate. It, we definitely want to get diverse perspectives that that are out there in healthcare, and yours is quite unique and I'm really excited to dive into what you're doing with your team at premature before we do get into that though amy, I love to know what inspires your work in healthcare. We'll take saw really from the very beginning of always been fascinated with bioscience and healthcare at. That's been my passion interest pretty much solely and his corneas may sound I really love the fact. That your day to day worker Labor actually helps people. It's an incredible opportunity reward. But beyond that I'm really fascinated with intricacies and complexities of bioscience both on the level of a human body, as well as a healthcare ecosystem, and so if you think about the biological system design like the indecrompt and neurological electrical systems and how they influence each other, it's fascinating and then you take that macro level and you think about healthcare in the synergies and collisions of biology technology and behavioral. Economics. And Policy and psychology, and then salt the end of the day really just the individuality of human beings living out their lives You know they make some really intriguing intersections and I think it's fascinating to thrive at those intersections and a great place to be challenged intellectually emotionally, and then those intersections are really advancing the quadruple aim of healthcare care especially with application of Ai and our company. Prem- attempts doing just that were applying ai to biometric signals to understand what's happening in the body. While it, it's fascinating work and you know you've had spent some time in previous leadership positions with other companies in a you see the future there and so talked about really biometrics. So you know exactly how you guys are focusing on biometrics what biometrics is in particular to to what you guys are doing and how exactly you guys are adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Let's do well. Thank you. Well, really we're using biometrics to empower women to make informed healthcare decisions and our. First application is infertility. So just to step back a little bit fertility starts to decline in women in their thirties and therefore many of us who are waiting to have kids were a little bit older. It makes conception and maintaining a pregnancy more challenging and the there's new data coming out from the World Health Organization that shows that one in four couples in developing countries have been affected by infertility Suda moved to your question about biometrics we use what's called advanced, Cronin Biological and circadian. Science to be able to pull up that biometrics. So it's all about when something is happening. So chronobiology biology's is a science, understanding the phases and operations of physiological and hormonal in systems of our bodies, and then applying time series analysis to that and being able to predict and understand a variety of medical conditions because each of these bodily systems they have rhythms to him and those rhythms our cycles are specific in each individual. So in other words, they have those rhythms they impact. Things like sleep and eating and women's monthly cycles. So when we do something critical like when we have intercourse to get pregnant or avoid pregnancy or even wind during the day, we might administer a drug therapy. So effective and has the fewest side effects. So think about that saw you a morning person or a night person I'm a morning person. Okay. So that's really controlled by your biological clock. So I've the night person, but I've had to kind of force myself in between work and kids. To be more of a morning, but that's not naturally what my body wants to be in on the weekends off fall back. So your morning, maybe I'm more like I didn't even think about that but maybe I'm more like that. Okay so What does your body do? Oh, on the weekends I'm up. I'm baby. Right, exactly. What's up? Yeah, that's interesting. Okay. Okay. That's fair Okay. So this is a bow. You know applying your your normal circadian biology to how things work out. So we do is we measure biological patterns that are controlled by the clocks, and so we do this with biometric of body temperature. So temperatures a proxy for physiological activities of our body. We've got a device or wearable Caprio in that measures core body temperature on a continual basis and core body temperatures really the gold standard, a circadian science, a very rich information signal, and as one of one of our advisers stated from a diagnostic perspective, it's like taking a blood draw every five minutes and the kind of information you can pull from that. So for our. First application, we're using that information to help women identify their fertile window for pregnancy, and then many women don't even have a window because of underlying issues. So we can provide this very high fidelity information through this continual biometric that can be used to diagnose and then track the effectiveness of treatments for those underlying conditions, and then we believe that we can apply these biometrics also to contraception to menopause to sleep disorders and eventually clinical areas such as the timing of delivery of drug therapies like chemotherapy for maximum effectiveness.

Laura Jackson Of Towpath shares Her Roast Chicken Recipe

"Name is Laura. Jackson I'M The, head chef and CO owner of Towpath, which is on the regent's canal in East London. And I'd like to share one of my favorite recipes with today, which is race chicken. Obviously. A very, very simple recipe but I think one that is quite hard to pull off properly and. Rest of chickens in my life. So I think by now I think got the recipe down to T. it's a great one to cook at home because it is so simple and it's a crowd pleaser suits quick to prepare, and the reason I chose this recipe is because while one is totally delicious but. For me my sort of philosophy and the way I love to cook is not anything and the great thing about roast chicken is once you've served the chicken, you can then make a stock with the caucus. which you to make lots of different stews and soups and broths, and then there's also tends to be quite a lot of meet the you miss from carving, which can then be used for another thing. So essentially, you can get three or four dishes from one thing which makes me very, very happy. So all you need to do is get roast chicken. Of Asli, I would say, definitely. To get chicken that has had a good life. So free range organic or from a farm where you know that the having a nice time and I used to always roast chickens with butter but then maybe seven or eight years ago I had to give up Daria had some health issues. So I switched to using olive oil and actually feel that it is much better than using butter because the crispiness of the skin, you can take it to another level because. The burning properties of olive oil much lower than butter. So definitely go for olive oil. For Chicken you definitely want one big juicy lemon, and then head of garlic. If you've got some Tarragon, obey leaves to stuff up. It's bumpy can do that as well but that's not huge thing. So really super super simple. What you want to do I get your oven I would say almost as hot as possible. Obviously if you've got very strong oven, I would do it at about kind of t twenty to thirty, and then I would cut the garlic in half and. Stick. It up. It's bomb with some bay leaves. Tarragon if you have. Cut The lemon half squeeze it all the juice out like you can possibly get out and squeeze all over the chicken and again, then put the lemon up. It's bum. It just cooks more evenly if you've got lots of things stuffed up inside it. Then I put lots of pepper and some Odin Sea salt, and then a really really generous gluck of olive oil. Than, just get your hands in just rub it all over. And then pop it in the oven breasts side up an idea between twenty five to thirty five minutes at a super super high heat. Basically, this is the stage where you want the skin to go. Really really crispy. So, anywhere between that time, and then once the skin is super crispy, you want to turn the heat down really really low. So I turn it down to about one forty, one fifty. And then Cook it for another twenty five to thirty five minutes. So total, you want to cook the chicken for an hour. So if it's super high for twenty five, then you delay for thirty five. Vice Versa and then you basically take out I. don't based or touch it during its cooking and let it rest for a good twenty minutes to half an hour and then it's good to go.

How Would Augustine Read Genesis? with Dr. Benjamin Quinn

"GONNA it I'M GONNA go fast and I and fly high. So Augusta Guston when he's converted around the year three, eighty six and he's about he's in his early thirties by this point the very first commentary that he turns to ride is actually one on genesis and he does so against a group of people called the mannequins that he'd. been a part of for a little over a decade and very quickly after coming to Christ he sees the manatees not as not as reputation or not as personal enemies, per se but theologically, they really were enemies because they undo. So much of what's true and rich and good in Christ centred about the scriptures and especially in this directly begins to answer your question especially as it relates to the doctrine of creation. So over Agustin's lifetime first of all, there's development in his thoughts and there's a development and how he approached his genesis one through eleven genesis one through three specifically about five different times he addresses it the very first time. If you look at that early commentary, just a couple a couple of years after he's converted to be honest it's kind of weird he does all kind of crazy allegorical stuff he's. He's really pushing back against some extremities of Manichean thaw. By the time you get to his much more mature though in this comes about the you know the works that Augustine most popular for Confessions City of God on the Trinity on Chris Easing, these kind of what we would call his mature works by the time he looks at Genesis one. Through eleven at that point here are some of the the. Distinctive of his interpretation that you're gonNA notice first of all he's going to be very clear on a very healthy doctrine of creation. What I mean by that is he's not going to see something like the spirit world bad in the mid or the material world is bad spirit world is good. He's GonNa work really really hard to push against that. There remains some measure of a spiritual side may be. Better than the material saw and whether that's true or not. Another point is still be some of that but he's going to always remember that sort of bad ten years of Manichean life that he experienced and when he returns to genesis one through eleven, it's always gonna be sort of in back of his mind and who he's arguing with so to speak. Yeah, secondly, he's also going to always be deeply. Christ centered. As shouldn't surprise us. But maybe for some of your ears when they hear the word Christ centered in terms of interpretation or they may think about ten years old and I want to say, no, that's about I. Don't Know Nineteen Hundred Years old somewhere somewhere in there. And Augusta and when he's turning to any part of scripture. But especially, the Old Testament Psalms particular genesis one through eleven he's going to see in the beginning in fact right there he's GonNa Circle that in his Latin tax going to say that in that beginning the way that his text reads there's Jesus Right. There's the same beginning John's talking about the same beginning to Colossians, one is referring to that's Jesus there in fact his. Commentaries are summarized. He called him the Toda's Chris because he saw the whole Christ there and that's true. Really of his interpretation of all the Old Testament. The third thing I would say on that Kyle is my favorite part of that I've learned from Augusta. My favorite part is that he always interprets scripture with what he calls the double love in mind. This is nothing more than the great commandment He has in his little book on her midday. Scott on Christian, teaching our on on Christian doctrine. He says any interpretation of scripture that doesn't undergird love for God and love for neighbor is an invalid interpretation. Period. Now. There's a lot. There's a lot of questions. There's a lot to be said that's not the end of the conversation, but I always hear that as if Jesus is right that there's nothing if he is because he's Jesus if if he's right that there's nothing more important about living in his world. Then to love God, and to love other people, the net applies to everything in life including how we interpret the Bible, not just how we parent and how we pass through and how we were all the those things too that even how we interpret the Bible Jesus you said all along the prophets point to me. So when you go back to those also recognize the most important thing about living in my world is that you love on love of people. So if you've if you draw from any interpretation of scripture something that you can't draw straight lines to love forgotten left for the people you've you somehow fallen off the radar, you've. Fallen off the wagon. So to speak and always been sort of guides and directs is not only interpretation but then application scripture. Yeah. Man That's so

Designing for, Marketing to, and Partnering With Gen Z

"If, you don't have to use using your product or talking about product or share your product. To, break it to you you're irrelevant, and so that's what every single company that is targeting consumers needs to care about whether you're a fortune five hundred company or whether you're a startup are their percents that jazzy has mental. Jansy considers anyone who is not really speaking their language or not understanding trends boomer. It doesn't matter if you're a millennial, it doesn't matter if your genetic doesn't matter of your boomer. Jets. BOOMER's anyway. Do you think though given how personalized Z. has preferences on that? There is a definitive. This is cool. This is not cool a changes weekly so you have to keep up. If you understand what's score not. Really hard on the wardrobe man to. Say that the difference between Jansy and millennials is much bigger gap than between millennials older generations I would say so because Gen Z. is the first generation that's mobile I and mobile native I totally agree millennials will say were mobile first but there's a lot of stuff that we still feel much more comfortable going to a computer to do they ticket purchases. We still feel like we're safer on the browser for some reason whereas Jesse's do everything from their phone right? It's like we're we're used to that. We're used to buy things from our phone signing documents from our full for better for worse requiring much more instant gratification. I'd say the youtube videos even now to me feel too long if the first minute is the person apologizing and trying to be politically correct, they just need to get to the point where the Roi has to be real. Yeah. If it's good content if it's entertaining content, then boomer out and you've lost us. When people say Okay I want to go be an influence are now before for millennials that was you became a youtube star now as A. More desirable to be tiktok influence Sir versus Youtube. One certain ones are clearly more easy to go viral on. Twenty nine percent of youth in America wants to become bloggers or youtubers versus twenty three percent want to become professional athletes. The more people want to become youtubers than athletes, which is a massive shift on the platform that Gen Z. wants to be an influence or on tiktok seems the easiest for people because we've obviously seen Charlie demilio becoming one of the biggest influencers in under a year the conversations around the actual talks right now are like living on other platforms, but it's Super Valuable Tiktok. Stars are all spending time on Youtube now. It's a natural growth phase so Are tiktok stars the new. Youtube. Stars. There's a whole correlation there in the sense that if you're big on Tiktok, the way you can really continuously build your audience status sustainable is on Youtube. But many have not been able to be successful on Youtube. It's more likely. They will not be successful actually because they haven't really adapted on how to make long form content there used to making sixty second videos which doesn't translate well to Youtube. You Wanna be making ten minute videos because that's how you monetize. There is no. Easy variety factor you just gotta be really good at distribution and marketing honestly especially in tech talk there so much remix name culture it's not necessarily original one, hundred percent. And maybe that's part of why it's hard when they translate to you to for the most part, you have to come up with something completely people who are really really good storytellers will be able to do. So across different mediums whether it's Tiktok whether it's you whether instagram weather's twitch I, think the shot from video especially the stuff on Tiktok it's what's the punchline what's the actual point of the video that makes it interesting and why it's so democratizing video creations you don't need to bring light to be a good tiktok crater. You literally just need your phone. Yeah. On Tiktok you get thirty seconds, you can record it with your phone you can have whatever quality of. Video and as a good story line, people will watch it and people shirt or if you're adding value to the viewers life. Young short videos are not just jokes I. Mean, I cringe when people say tiktok is a bunch of people dancing to music because I'm like you clearly have not use this thing. Right there's educational stuff on it. There's financial advice on Tiktok. There is stuff that teaches you how to cook. So short videos a really powerful form I think, and it's basically getting rid of the fluff that you don't need and delivering maximum value per second. Literally per second because you can lose the person after like three or four seconds of it's not good enough. To your point people talk just a fun lip synching at or dancing. APP. And it's not it's a place where he can learn anything you ever wanted to learn. Whether it's cars whether it's how to take photos how to model I've watched so many talk videos about videography tips and I phone tricks and all sorts of stuff, and it's just endless amounts of short form education

Settling In With Your Budget

"You stop paycheck to paycheck, get out of debt and save more money. Earlier. Just after Mother's Day when you're supposed to do this at least here in our gardening zone I. purchased. Thirty two tomato clients twenty nine of which survived and dare I say thrived. And while I wasn't always. Of the mind that they would make it, they did they outgrew the not sturdy little green polls you can buy from big box. center stores and I will not do that next year I'm going to get something sturdier for those massive plants but needless to say we ended up. I think thirty, eight, twenty I can't remember exactly too many tomato plants. And what do you do when you have too many tomato plants you have too many tomatoes and that is exactly what happened to me and Julie. So we did what everyone did during a pandemic and we started putting things up and in this instance, these tomatoes. So the other day. I'm sitting there with a whole bunch aromas and we're doing this thing where you cut them in half you broil them in the oven for a moment and that's supposed to allow you to kind of pinch off the tomato skin and then you take that and you process it more and you ended up with. Think we ended up with that one doing some salsa. As I started the process, I kinda rinse them. I'd cut him in half I lay them skin side up on a cookie sheet I put it in the oven for five minutes. I'm watching it closely not to burn them I, pull them out, and then you have to let them cool. Weather Cooling I'm doing the next sheet I'm pinching off the skins once they've cooled down, I'm having to pull out the little white stem thing in there. And quickly like first or second cookie sheet in there were many many cookie sheets still to go. I told you. So this is GonNa take forever and she said. She said something very wise because she's. She gets to the. Essence of things quite adeptly. And she said Oh Jesse with canning, you just have to settle in. And that phrase is just kind of rolled around in my head since then and of course, while I'm sitting there pinching. Tomato. Skins off of half sliced Roma tomatoes ready for some, can't, salsa. I'm thinking about budgeting and I'm thinking about you good listener viewer and I'm thinking. Wow. Budgeting. Sometimes, with budgeting, you just have to settle in we get excited we plant all. Probably too many plants, but it's spring. It's not hot that are no weeds yet and we're excited plus we were at the store and we saw these different varieties and we're just were jazzed right so we get everything going. You put it in the ground at first. You don't even think things are working, but then the pace really starts to. Your excitement starts to take as the plants are growing, and all of that is like with any new endeavor. Here is the topic of conversation. So in any endeavour, we're going to be talking about. This. Period of initial excitement but once Wayne's and I'm just sitting there slicing my fifty. You know. Not. Fifty five, hundred, fifty, thousand. So many tomatoes and as I'm sitting there slicing the next one see no end in sight. I'm giving the wise counsel you just got to settle in and so it is with budgeting in particular that pernicious little beasts that is paying off debt. You have to find a pace where you just almost you call it out at the beginning and you just recognize you know what? We're going to be here a little while and that's what Julia was saying. She's like Oh we're canning were processing or cutting these things we're doing all these steps were standing in the kitchen sink. We're going to be here a little while we might as well just settling. Sodas with budgeting you're going to be here awhile when you've got a big goal that you want to tackle on audacious Harry goal like Jim, Collins says. Givens has big big hairy audacious goal like paying off all your debt finally, getting rid of your student loans saving up enough money for a house down payment in a market where housing just keeps. Going on a terror.

The iPhones 12

"Mike, yes Lauren Mike, are you going to upgrade your iphone? Well have an iphone. But it has five gene. Yeah, who cares? Let's see if we can answer that on this week's show. Hi Everyone. Welcome to gadget lab. I'm lauren good. I'm a senior writer at wired and I'm joined remotely by my Co host wired senior editor Michael Cholerae. He who does not have an iphone hello from Pixel land. And we're also joined by wired senior associate editor. Julian Chicago to who has like seventeen different phones on him right now. Hey Julie in below my desk has like six phones on right now so. So today we are talking about yet another apple event this week apple announced a new iphone twelve, actually four of them and a tiny smart speaker, and these are the first iphones with five G. which matters doesn't matter doesn't matter yet. We're GONNA talk about five G. later on in the show what you need to know about it the challenges and rolling it out across the US and whether you'll even be able to connect to five G. With the new IPHONE are calling. We'll night is going to join us later on for that but first, let's talk about the phones themselves. Jillian. Phone has championed edges. Let's get that out of the way. That's probably the most important thing here, right? Okay. But obviously, there's more than that what stood out to you most about the new iphones twelve as someone who takes a lot of photos and tests the cameras on phones a lot. A. Lot of their camera upgrades. We're the most exciting thing for me and and I really like how a lot of those camera upgrades are kind of for the most part. All across the entire lineup from the 699 iphone twelve mini, you're getting the same main camera that they improve the aperture on as the iphone twelve pro. But for the most part that iphone twelve pro, you get these new features like pro raw, which gives you the ability to edit. Raw photos and also get the benefits of apples, computational photography, and that is just someone something that's really exciting for someone who takes a lot of raw photos with my camera just gives you more granular control over photo editing and also the other thing is they're bringing night mode to every single lens that's on this phone. So finally, you can take a Selfie, at night and not have to worry about it being too terrible, looking or grainy. So overall I think the entire suite of camera features on the entire range is pretty exciting and pretty dramatically better than what you had last year on the iphone eleven. And tell us about some of the video improvements to yes. For the improvements, they added the ability to shoot HDR with Dolby Vision, which is you know apparently the only phone that can do this and basically lets you get this program cinematic looking effector or look. You could say with all of your videos at ten bits of it's like super high quality. It just looks really good. With the option to edit the colors and have really good cinematic looking video as well with the iphone twelve pro you there have this improved stabilization system that moves the sensor itself. So basically, in fact, you're getting something that feels and looks much more high quality than ever before, and again, this is somewhere where apple leads compared to every other phone manufacturer except maybe Samsung is pretty close. No one else does the ability to shoot video quality this well, and it's just every year. It just seems to be getting further and further away from other companies even like you. Google. Pixel phones that take really great photos Mike what did you make the event? You know my favorite thing that I saw this week was the mini, the small phone small phones in general are exciting to me. Our colleague Brian Barrett wrote this week that the arrival of the iphone twelve mini is a harbinger of good for the small phone community I think you know fabulous when they came out what was it like eight years ago or so we started seeing these gigantic phones and then. People really liked them and they started them in huge numbers. So phones just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. We've all been waiting for phones to get small again, phones have gotten smaller, but they haven't really gotten small enough, and now this year I think phones are starting to get just about small enough to satisfy the people who are looking for small phone I was out last week two weeks ago at A. Socially distanced event and I saw a guy with a Sony experience x to compact, which is like a really tiny. It's even smaller than the iphone mini android phone and I asked him about it. I went over to him six feet away and I said, Hey, what is that and he started going on and on about it and the way that he was talking about it was so passionate and I realize that. Like okay. You know what? There is a huge market. People are really really passionate about smartphones and people are GonNa flip when they see the mini I think coming until November So I, think for people who really want it. They're going to have to resist clicking that buy button for a couple of weeks

"How durable can he be at this stage of his career. Can you depend on him to play sixteen games and if you lose him or get him nick. They don't have any other slot receiver so to me. It's a tremendous challenge of how they're going to look at it this way. The sixty five plays what's the most effective way for us to move the ball down the field realizing those two phases of the game. We're gonna have we're gonna be real good special teams. They're always very good. <hes> and their defense is going to be very good so thinking that they're going to play a game with a lot of risk drop. Tom brady back forty five times and allow him him to take a pounding with a suspect offensive line with a number of questions. No that's not how they're going to do it. They realize those other parts of their game are very very strong and what they're going to do is try to figure out in the first month of the season. What's the best way for us to build to win. A singular giller football game compared to what's the theme of this season. No they're going to go month to month week by week. Trying to figure out you know something. This is the best way to get through this and then when they get to the playoffs. They'll start thinking about that. They're not like dallas taken about talking about the playoffs before the regular season starts starts. They don't even know what type of team but the question marks. They are real. It's not just because the new england that were questioning them and i believe they'll prove out in the first four weeks and the question marks were amplified this week with the news. David andrews there senator guy who's started every game for the last few years being out potentially intially for the season with the very scary blood clots in his lungs but the x. factor for them is not that dissimilar than the x factor for them that we saw early on and last season joined the team and that's josh gordon. Josh gordon a thought last week when i was out you guys were outstanding and talking about josh gordon and his story but josh gordon the football player himself when he was on the field for new england. I won't be able to understand how productive he was. Only does shawn jackson average more yards per catch last year than josh gordon at eighteen point zero the guys that in the league the full list of guys in the league that has many receiving yards yards is josh gordon and averaged even sixteen yards per catch and again he was eighteen. That's tyler lockett to hilton tyreek hill. Mike evans sean jackson axon. Those are a short list of some of your best deep threats in football. There was a reason that even after last year when josh had another unfortunate issue issue. The patriots held onto his rights. The patriots supported him hoping to get him back into the fold because if josh gordon can be that credible <music> outside threat that he was once in brady got on the same page last year that adds a totally different dynamic to the offense even if the offense wants to be run oriented anted even if vitamins going to get.

"Bucks a ticket ten games one thousand dollars if three hundred people take them up on this. He's basically playing for free this year after taxes like like what matt overton maybe walk that one back just a bit. It's a nice sentiment but i don't think you can follow through on it. He said he was watching morning t._v. And people say dumb. Tom stuff all the time. Now people won't follow up on it like no no it won't follow through on it so he's not going to make money you can't strain in jacksonville and the long snapper jackson and he's going to be on the field a lot log snapper jacksonville. That is a work intensive position <hes> stories to start your morning this morning. Julio jones asked promises getting paid. The falcons star receiver said he wouldn't hold out this season because team owner arthur blank. Thank promise they'd get a deal done now. Blankets holding true to that saying deal with julio will be done before week one see. How important is it for the falcons to get this done. Oh they're going to get it done. I talked to julio a few weeks ago at the hall of fame game mattie is they're ready for the season. Julio said i'm patient so it might not not be before the first game but him mr blank have worked out a little situation but mr blaine got plenty of money run out of breath before arthur blank runs out of money and this is the the ideal player owner relationship where you have a player who the team went out and got if you remember them. They traded a bunch to move all the way up in the top five draft julio. He's been paid early every time he's outplayed his contract every time and now that he has faith. It's gonna get done so he's. He's a huge drawl in that region not only play high school football close their airplanes college football there at alabama and in atlanta it is s._e._c. crazy about college football if they love their falcons so he's a big draw there for or mr blake all right moving on washington left tackle trent williams remains a hold out an has asked to be traded head coach. Jay gruden very strongly doubts that williams will actually really be traded nick. How do you think this plays out. There are few teams across the n._f._l. Maybe most notably the houston texans that if they haven't called up and tried to pry him away. I don't know what they're doing and i don't know what washington is doing being seemingly so obstreperous. If you will about the the refusal to trade i wouldn't think of another word i apologize belligerent think of another word. I apologize soon as i said as soon as i said loyd. Is this hold hold on a second. Why is he. This isn't just about money. He thinks that he had a legitimate medical misdiagnosis. Yeah he's made a bunch of money. He's a proud man and he's saying i will not play for you so i don't think he's gonna lose staring contest. Take what you can get for trent williams. You'll be happy houston. I talked to my guy peter king he you told me last week..

"The player he once was but still had something left and said ah i can keep playing football. I'm gonna keep playing football as long as i possibly can so i get why zeke would want to do this and in his interview with without saying it i think he is saying he's acknowledging. Some of the point stephen jerry of made which is there are some benefits to being a dallas cowboy spe particularly being a lifelong dallas cowboy. Oh boy that other franchises can offer you. It's why chris talks about all the time troy emmett and michael irvin all still make their homes in dallas that the cachet ashtray of that organization and being considered a lifelong cowboy even if the into your career you catch on somewhere else like nobody cares the jerry rice played for the seahawks seahawks and the raiders and think of him as a san francisco. Nobody thinks of chris carter's anything other than the eagle briefly in the beginning but a viking people think of you as a viking even though you played moment with the dolphins with that new helmet and everybody else in my body workout but nobody in so you see a hutu key malaysia play for the rock. It's not the raptors even though technically he did so the last couple of years of career notwithstanding i do believe zeke wants to be a dallas cowboy through the prime and after the prime of his career and i think that's community knows what the dallas cowboys offer him as far as a home for the next couple years but i'm sure jerry jones also knows when he gets from zeke. This is as we call him a once in a lifetime running back. I mean one of these really really great athletes. Who you know was going to deliver. Who you know has been a winner for you. How much is this jerry's pride. He knows post football. You talk about how much he knows the game. He knows how much he needs him. Is there a little bit of pride that sort of working its way in here. You don't become a multi-billionaire without some some type of pry but jerry will tell you. I love the game at the beginning of the day in the end of the game. He loves football. It's been part of his blood for a long long time and he feels like he understands football but the one t- understands is the product and the product. He's got out there on the field. He realized the best player is still in mexico when their chances they want the hostal embody already trophy. They have no chances without ezekiel. Jerry knows that he hadn't expressed that verbally but he knows that so. I believe that a deal will get worked out because because jerry but jerry is a tough tough negotiator and he's willing to stare down anyone and that's what they're going to have a showdown staredown you so you know there in dallas and real quick wanna revisit something you said yesterday you put basically one week from today as the drop dead date for this to get done for zeke to be able to play week one correct that it's not done by tuesday of the first week of the season he wouldn't be able to play week one gin and i were discussing this before the show can use explain explain to the audience again why you think even that position or running back couldn't sign on a thursday night and play that sunday from a game plan standpoint..

"And say i'm gonna choose to take a healthier approach to this. How much change is now with the direction that this team moves in because nick put played out the timeline august. I he tells jim irsay right. I told peter your king on august fourth. I'm going to be there week one and august nineteenth he tells them so. It's not a ton of time for the organization to get jacoby set up and running but how much changes if you're the head coach of team where you had one plan where your your team is in conversation for super bowl talk and now you're in a completely different print direction how much has to get changed and how quickly well. This is a unique situation because he hasn't played so it's been jacoby percents team and there is the value value of of jacoby having a whole season as a starter so through o._t._a.'s through training camp. It's been percents. The operation been all with percents so you've got that body of work that you can build on in terms of of of approaching and and how dramatically you're gonna have to change the system. It's pretty dramatic because you've got to make make things work for jacoby. You've got to give jacoby everything that he needs to be successful and there's a big part of that playbook that was luck the majority any of his what does andrew like now that has to go away and it it's what does jacoby like and a point that you made earlier just about the the young in part of of andrew luck's career. I think this is always the debate that we have about whether you should play a rookie or not play rookie because they don't know how to protect themselves all the time so so even got a guy like kyla murray behind an offensive line that that's you know struggling. He's young and he's going to take chances because he's young. That's gonna lead to certain hits and this may be a topic for a later time but it's maturing process for those young quarterbacks. That's part of this whole discussion in and why we got here as well. They haven't been able to do a fool off season study this off season. You know what they studied. How well it offensive line was. How can i add a running. How can we help that defense now. They don't have that opportunity because their new quarterback. They have a lot of confidence in them but they didn't get a chance to build a breakdown everything because he didn't play much last year so now now. How do they go back to seventeen find the things that worked for them so for me. This is going to be an extended training camp four to six weeks finding out what jacoby likes what he wants to do best how to get the team around that as far as offense of line and running attack before they moved forward. I still believe that they are a playoff team because this is a talented talented well did roster that defensive front can come up and be more consistent with their linebackers in their second. <hes> secondary did i believe is underrated and we'll be better this season yeah. This is the legitimate playoff team sure andrew. Luck is waking up this morning going wait what happened this weekend. I did what he's got a little bit now. Coach stick around coming up or the steelers better.

"Just a little bit time for us to go environmental carli lloyd reportedly received an offer to kick in an n._f._l. Preseason game after this video of her nailing a fifty five yard field goal made the rounds on social media and football isn't her only hidden talent thrown out the first pitch at the phillies game last night. I delivering <hes> what looks old firm and rubber football strike zone stack baseball descended soccer. She plays with the u._s. Women's national team. They're taking on portugal at seven eastern tomorrow. On f s one i think one of the teams actually that they're not releasing the name of it called and wanted her to come in tomorrow night so quick absolutely fourth preseason game she can't because of this was a legit excuse but no. She says she might consider training for it and trying out legitimately in two thousand twenty man or woman very hard to make an n._f._l. Team aged thirty eight which is what she would be but man and that was for a kicker and that fifty five yard field that was through the skinny uprights like the the the uprights that they narrow for it was raining kenny upright. She does have the league but can she do it under the pressure in the elements and she's got a short and upper approach field goal kickers can only take three steps because the take more than that. They're going to block it in this. She took five steps so five steps help you kick it longer. She has to be a little quicker because you get it up with that same distance but definitely definitely should get an opportunity and that'd be great. That'd be unbelievable time for stories start parade but you can't be five steps. You do your thing whether man the cowboys continue to move forward without ezekiel elliott who remains in combo awaiting new deal reportedly been working out with hall of famer marshall faulk hawks said quote zeke's fitnesses great. The only thing we can't simulate is the contact. Seattle art is to stay in football. Football shape not just shape shape. It's it's impossible. I mean you can run on treadmills. You can get trainers and everything but the thing that you can't do you can't assimilate the two a day practices and the body contact running with people avoiding people with people on your body. You can't simulate that yeah. You can push a sled. You can put gordon harness but human interaction. No you can't simulate that marshall but they're doing the right thing. Marshall faulk is a good guy for him to be around to get him ready but he node owed. You need a couple of games before you start getting used to getting your body built up for that contract. This is a position in zeke's at an age that i do think that he's going to win. He does return to the cowboys. I don't think falen conditioning tests. I don't think that his he's going to be slower but to chris's point marshall fox point he's going to have been training by himself has opposed to as opposed to having people pull him to the ground so that will of course take a bit of an unjust we can't take for granted practices import and that's why we have more injuries to the less contact with this new era of flares. You start seeing more and more injuries. Their bodies are not ready to stay.

There is no great offense without a decent offensive line. Look at the best offense offense of teams we have productivity and points and you'll go down and look like that's one of the best offense lines.

It's like okay. They're nine and seven and if things go right there eleven and five and that's that's how i feel belt carolina for carolina last year.

I think grunk deed and does love football but he got to appoint to where he didn't need it anymore so i think there's different syrup people that we'll play until multiple teams until they get caught then. Go try out again. There's ricky williams on the other end of the spectrum not sure exactly where grunk falls but he clearly at the moment feels like he got what he came here.

"The other part that i took away from that was he mentioned that after the super bowl he was in tears two years of joy but out of pain and that for the month following the super bowl he had trouble sleeping more than twenty minutes getting out of bed and it was because of a hit that i feel like i've seen rob gronkowski take a hundred times in his career. This didn't seem like any out of the ordinary play. I mean that's a bad hit on his lower collegue but i feel like we have seen grunk. Take that type of punishment. I feel like you see that type of punishment regularly in an n._f._l. Game and the reason that i it it stuck out to me was because i think the average fan the viewer has a hard time realizing even a play like that the level of brutality the lasting impact the level of damage can do so tell people because he did describe that they had to actually take out a thousand milliliters of blood blood from just from that one hit. I'm over the course of a couple of months. It just drained as you're describing any talked about how he had trouble for weeks sleeping more than twenty minutes at a time and while on replay you see it. He gets hit really solidly writing this quad but it didn't that wasn't a hit that during the game i think anyone said oh my god is he gonna come back on the field and he of course continued to play and continued to go out and make the single biggest play of that game so i understand why for for gronk if after winning another super bowl you are in pain instead of enjoy why you might say this isn't fun for me anymore and i don't think think it's coincidental that we've now in the last five years had four separate guys who at different times in their rookie contracts were considered potential ensure future all timers in patrick willis calvin johnson rob gronkowski and andrew luck all said you know what at least for the time being saying. I got what i came here for. I got enough money enough memories enough of the two combined that i can now step away because is if you are that caliber of player by the time you get to your second contract. You do have the type of financial security that gives you the ability then if you have lost the passion or a football is no longer fun for you that you can move on so. I don't think it's going to be a long list of guys but i don't don't think that andrew luck and gronk and those guys are going to be the end of players who feel like wow. Their careers ended four or five years earlier than we would expect one thing we can't do. We can't assume that all these football players love football. There's a difference in loving football in love and the benefits football and typically when you get to a certain mark if you get to that mark financially you can walk away from the game so to say that all these guys the football was not out of them. I've been too many locker rooms is it i know it varies into degrees that people love football and how much they wanna win and how much they want to sacrifice and you can believe with the amount of money. That's in the game. You're not we'll see in the n._b._a. Because you can play in the n._b._a. It's easy like you can't get hurt the way you can get be hurt in fail and they allow the veteran players with the guaranteed contracts to build a milk out those last few years n._f._l. You can't do the grunt can't go out and be a special teams player..

"The last couple years when they have had tied for the second. Most wins tied tied for the most wins in the n._f._l. They've had a league average defense to go along with. Chris said always a great offense withdrew breezy middle. The offense changed a bit with ingram and camara mirror being a more run central goffin's. I do think this saints team has an argument. That is the most complete team in the n._f._l. We have seen in that dome with that coach coach and that quarterback if they have a top fifteen defense there in the game for a super bowl if they have a top ten deep and they can become super bowl favorites if they get enough pass rushers off the edge. They've spent a big investment on their secondary as far as being able to play nickel having three competent corners pass rushers plus that corner play thing for some turnovers turnovers and play well in a very tough division. I trust the offense as much as any offense in the n._f._c. All right you mentioned the defense. You mentioned the tight ends. No one's worried about ingram not being there does that not is now in fact during that in the reason from a formation standpoint kamar carried the bar a lot more and more touches seventy four touches in year number two that progression russian. He's always been the specialty back. He's a little undersized slightly built. I don't want to see him carried the ball three hundred times so i believe also latavius murray comes over as a free agent a big back from minnesota should be able to assume some of that pounding so watch how many times he touches the ball kenny be sufficient shen as an undersized running back when you bump up those touches but i believe from scheme standpoint. They're going to try to duplicate what they did. The first eleven weeks of the season drew brees. I eleven weeks best q._b._r. In the n._f._l. Struggle in the plum week twelve through the playoffs his around mill to pack. I think around twelfth ranked in quarterback so trying to continue what they got up to a blazing start last season all right. Let's take a break coming up.

"It's it's something that you understand. I must do on the way to this so Tom Brady's planning to trickle in his mind like any person that does something for a long time. He makes it more important every single day but when Tom Brady is running out there to the field there's a certain amount of kid like joy but there's a certain amount of professionalism that takes over I must do this. This is a huge part of of being a great player and he's mastered that the greatest master the ugly parts of their profession and it becomes just something else that they must do but there's no way Tom Brady enjoys training camp. That's just flat out lot. It's impossible. I think to your point I think Michael Strahan one said if it wasn't for training camp if we could just skip it. I probably would have played an extra couple of seasons. I'm sure a lot of guys playing a longtime say the same thing all right. Let's take a break coming up could Ezekiel Elliott's holdout dragged into the regular season. That's next on first since I got a great heavyweight battle for you. Coming up on Saturday as Brooklyn's unbeaten atom of Nazi takes takes on Chris Arreola Saturday eight eastern five Pacific on Fox sports. I don't know what you mean. We are now going viral here. You're on first things first Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer one of the most sought after pitchers in the M._l._B. Trade market right now however yesterday he got lit it up and was pulled after allowing eight runs in four innings and when Terry Francona came to the mound to pull on Bauer show just a little bit of emotion emotion watch this he turns and fires in thankfully through it against the board so there was nobody in the seats there to get hit with but you don't you don't do that with your managers interest coming out. It's disrespectful so Frank Kunas going. What the heck was that broncos bad skip? I'm sorry and he goes go grab some pine. I'm GonNa see you a little bit and so he's he's in the principal's office right now and then let them deal with it but the royals they frustrated him they got some big hits on some of his best pitches and so got to go barriers a crazy guy I mean prior to this. We knew bowers a little bit crazy. Guy Yankees may be considering trading for him especially especially now since stroman went to the mets oddly enough but this is. I know it's on the takeaway. That's a hell of a throw man that thing win belt three hundred eighty feet in the air that teddy through clearing the Centerfield Wall. Oh Yeah I thought I was glad that Terry Francona check them because I know Terry from our days over another network and everything that's the kind of person is because he said the what was that <hes> go sit over there on the bench liked that aspect because very few times especially at that level. Are you going to see the manager respond that a- and I've never seen a pitcher to that in re. Oh you're going to take the ball on my hands. We'll get through. He was mad man. It also wasn't his like he had a center fielder DRP. nope fly ball yet an error on the thing some bad look let some pie right in the middle of the game.

"Catch it all on the Fox Sports app back here. First things first we'll get to Steelers and saints in second. But I watch the tackle from falcons kicker Matt Bosscher on Kenyan Barner this. I mean, this was an energy play for Atlanta right after this. They actually started playing really well after this play go as this might be the most impressive special teams tackle by a kicker or upon. I'm willing to bring some other videos takes off the ground and slam too. To build a seed and the wrath give them a little room for taunting to stand over flexes automob-, it he couldn't believe it. Did it eagles Texans? It feels like every Monday. We're talking about a great catch by Andre Hopkins. Well, it's Monday. And there's another great catch by day on dre Hopkins. That's why he has the best hands in the business. You can throw with anywhere when they talk about catch radius man, they have is pitcher near as far as low high one hand or he's a special special I receive and he went into the locker room during pregame warmups. They weren't sure if he was going to play he played great the whole game. So this game to Shawn Watson break in about thirty separate tackles there throws a dart to keep the drive alive. If the Texans could have held on to win because this was part of a thirteen point comeback right here. This would have been one of the better plays the entire NFL season. By a quarterback DeShaun Watson was spectacular. Third and Levin men everyone depending on him to make a play. Makes three guys miss and that Philadelphia rush and delivers a strike down. Impressive. What he did late yesterday? The eagles made eagles fans very happy today. We'll talk more about that. Finally chief Seahawks Doug Baldwin with this spectacular one handed. Catch Doug ball when get into done late in the game. Don't need to get the pass in fairness. They would have gotten the ball inside the ten yard line because you want to catch here Doug, Baldwin finishes. All great game run some great routes after really struggled with injuries throughout the season. They are different offense when Doug Baldwin this healthy Pete Carroll trust. Russell Wilson so much man late in the game. They're already in field goal range. They a couple of our sounds run out the clock. Now, let him throw it deep. Doug, Baldwin made the play I fan tastic game in New Orleans yesterday is the Steelers were trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. We pick this up in the fourth quarter fourth and five Steelers up for they call a fake punt on their own forty two and they come up about a yard. Short. So the saints come in Jiu breeze methodically. Worked the ball down the field while eating up the clock. And not surprisingly capping off a drive with a great catch from Michael Thomas that put the saints up thirty one to twenty eight. Yeah. That was a touchdown. Big day for Thomas posted eleven catches one hundred nine yards. Steelers would have one last chance forty-one seconds left juju Smith Schuster makes the catch. But he is stripped and that is the game. This is the third time in December. The Steelers have lost by three points. They now need a lot of help. If they're gonna make the playoffs. Here is what juju Smith Schuster had to say about that costly fumble after the game..
