A highlight from Fishing New Waters with Patrick Edwards
"This episode of RadCast Outdoors is brought to you by P .K. Lures, Bow Spider, and High Mountain Seasonings. Fish on! Hey, RadCast is on! Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. This is RadCast Outdoors. Here are David Merrill and Patrick Edwards. Welcome back to another episode of RadCast Outdoors. I'm your host today, Patrick Edwards, and I'm on the road. So this is a special edition of Patrick on the Road. I'm heading out doing some traveling for my work. Wanted to talk a little bit about something that was brought up to me the other day. My friend Seth, he asked me to do a breakdown of when you're going to a new body of water, what are some things that you need to do? What are some things that you need to look at? What's the kind of gear you should take? And so what I'm going to do is I'm going to do a high -level overview of how to break down different types of water and maybe some ideas of things that you should do beforehand, some things you should take with you, and of course some things you should try while you're there. So we'll go through that, and then we're going to talk specifically towards the end about pike, because he was more curious about the pike fishing aspect of things. So we'll talk about that too. But first, I just want to say a big thank you again to PK Lures. They are our fishing sponsor for the podcast. They've been a great company to work with over the last few years. They have quite the arsenal of products, and if you're going to be going anywhere this year fishing, doesn't matter whether it's open water or hard water, make sure to grab some PK Lures. They've got applications for all of the above for ice fishing season. If you don't have the PK Flutterfish and the PK Spoon and the PK Predator in your box, you're missing out. If you're fishing the open water and the new PK Ridge Rattler, it's a rattling crankbait. You can use it through the ice too, by the way, but it works great in open water. If you're catching trout, bass, walleye, doesn't matter. It catches just about everything. They have some great trolling applications. They have some trolling crankbaits like the PK Ridgeline crank, and then of course their Wobbler Dakota Disc, ReefRig and other trolling systems for walleye specifically. Those things are absolutely deadly. And then year round, the PK Spinajig. How could I forget that one? That one's amazing. So go to PKLure .com if you use Ragcast at checkout, you get 20 % off your order. So let's talk about breaking down bodies of water. Really, there's a few things that you should do well beforehand. If you know you're going to be taking a big trip and you're going to make a big investment, especially right now when you got gas, it's four, some places, five bucks a gallon. You want to make sure that you've done your homework prior to going to this body of water to fish. It doesn't matter whether it's a river, a lake, a pond, a reservoir. You need to do your homework beforehand. So one of the things that I always recommend is number one, get a hold of the fisheries biologists that work at that body of water. They're going to be able to share important information with you, some reconnaissance on what kind of fish are there. What are the typical size? Maybe you're interested in the size classes. Maybe you're going after master anglers and you want to make sure that you give yourself the absolute best chance of catching that master angler fish. The best thing to do is say, hey, I want to go there and I want to catch a big fish. OK, they're going to be able to hopefully key you in on some good areas or at least give you some people to talk to. You can also do some recon on the computer or on your phone. So onX is a great tool. Google Earth, of course, is a great tool. I like to pull it up and just look at what I can see visually from the satellite view. Sometimes you get the bad luck of having a western reservoir after runoff and the whole reservoir looks like chocolate because all the sediments washed down the river, you can't really see like into the water. You can see some of the rocky points and structures, but you can't see much else. But some are super clear bodies of water and you can see really well. So what I recommend is pull it up, take a look at it, maybe drop some pins on some areas that you think look good. And so some areas that I look for is transitions from hard to soft bottom. So if you see like a rocky shoreline where it goes into like maybe a sandbar, that's a good spot. Any kind of point that has a drop -off, if you can see weed edges, transitions are typically where you're going to find fish most of the time. So I mark those and just get an idea of what I'm looking at and just get a feel for the reservoir. I also look at where can I put in, if I'm taking a boat, where's the boat ramp at? Where's the bathroom at? Those are important things. Where's the parking area? Maybe I'm just going to go take my waders and I'm going to fish the shoreline. You're going to have to look for a parking area. You also want to look at the properties surrounding that body of water to make sure that it's public, because if you need special access to it, you're going to have to request that beforehand. So if there's private access, you're going to need to make those phone calls, those emails, whatever it takes to get access to that area. So that's some of the pre homework that I would recommend. I would also recommend you maybe call a local bait shop and just say, Hey, I'm coming to fish for this specific species. What are people catching fish on right now? What's the hot bait or during the time of year that I'm going, if I'm going in September and I'm calling the bait shop in May, say, Hey, in the fall around September, what kind of things should I be bringing to catch whatever fish it is? Right. Could be walleye trout, whatever, but just be very specific. Ask those questions. Those bait shops are going to be more than happy to tell you because they want you to come and buy those lures from them. And I always try to do that. Support your local bait shops, go in there, buy a few lures. That's a great gesture. They really appreciate it when you do that. So do that. That'll get you set up for your trip. Okay. Now let's talk about some of the things you ought to take for most fresh water situations around the entire country here in the United States. These are some of the things I recommend everybody takes. Okay. You should have some kind of suspending crank bait anywhere you go in this country, especially if you're going to fish for anything predatory. So if you're going for bass, walleye, trout, panfish, they all eat suspending crank baits. I've caught them all on it. And I've even caught suckers and carp on them too. So you never know. You may catch one of the less desirables on it too, but a suspending crank is one of my number one things. So you want to have those, you want to have some kind of a jig set up. I always have jigs with me and usually they're the eighth ounce and 16th ounce size. I always have Baraboo jigs because those catch everything from yeah, carp all the way through to trout. So make sure that you have some kind of a jig set up. I also like the VMC Munai jig. Those are phenomenal. And of course, like I mentioned earlier, the PK spinner jig, because it's a hybrid between a jig and a spinner. And you can do a lot of cool things with it. You can swim it, you can jig it, you can do all kinds of stuff with it. I also make sure to take some kind of a soft plastic to tip my jigs with. I like to bring Berkeley Gulp. Gulp seems to work really well, especially on trout. I catch tons of trout on Gulp, but you can also bring the Power Minnows. You can bring Paddle Tails. I like the Walleye Assassin Paddle Tails quite a bit. So make sure to bring something like that to tip your jigs with. And then of course, depending on the body of water that you're going to and what the regulations are, you might be able to buy some live bait, which is great. It's always good to have some crawlers if it's during the summer, maybe minnows, like in the fall, spring and winter. So just check the regulations, make sure that you're doing the appropriate things and fishing with the right stuff. But jigs are essential to have in your kit. I like molded swimbaits too. So like Storm makes a molded swimbait. It's just, it's about two and a half, three inches long. I like to have those cause they're really easy to fish. All you got to do is tie them on, cast them out, let them sink down to whatever depth you want to fish and just slow reel them back, you can reel them and pop them back. But those work on just about every species that I fish for. So those are critical, but also spoons are huge.

A highlight from What a Weird Week: That's a Big Ol' Ball of Cheese! Fri Sept 8 2023
"That's a big old ball of cheese. This is the What a Weird Week show for Friday, September 8th, 2023. Hi, everybody, it's weird. This is like crazy news here. Really weird, weird tale. Well, I got a great show for you today. What's so wonderful? Weird stuff! Hi, friends. I'm Scott. This is What a Weird Week, a show about weird stuff from this week's news. If you want links, audio, video, photos, warm thoughts. Just remember show notes dot page. You can find it all if you get to show notes dot page 10. Here we go. Season four, episode 50, first published on Friday, September the 8th, 2023. Kicking our weird news of the week off at number 10 is Venice, Italy, to start charging a cover, a cover charge of five euros for tourists who want to enjoy a day trip to Venice. This is only on select days to start. Seems like they're just trying it out. People who live in Venice are often outnumbered by tourists. And that can be a drag when you're just trying to get across town to your dentist appointment. And somebody is like, will you take my picture by this boat? Look, everybody, I'm Marco Polo. I imagine that plays out on a daily basis in Venice, but I'm not sure. Will a five dollar cover charge stop over tourism? I highly doubt it. If you've paid the money to go to Venice and then they're like, whoa, whoa, whoa, you can't come in, it's going to be five bucks. I mean, I do have an uncle who would be like, five dollars. I'll wait in the car. But most everybody else, you're going to pay the five bucks. But will a five dollar cover charge make a ton of money for the people of Venice? No, no, it will not, because they have to pay to administer this program. Can't even get a cup of coffee in Venice, probably for five bucks. Right. Less than a cup of coffee. Do you think maybe they're testing this out and someday you'll show up with your five bucks to get into Venice and they'll be like, oh, no, we've raised the price. It's five dollars twenty. Or heaven forbid, five ninety nine. Seems like this is a story to watch nine. Our number nine story is the man and lady suspected of busting a hole through the Great Wall of China because wanted to make a shortcut. A 38 year old man and a 55 year old woman who were working nearby have been detained while the investigation continues. They're suspected of using an excavator to bust through the Great Wall to create a shortcut for their construction work. I take a complicated view on this because I mean, yes, it's an ancient wonder to the world. That is an ancient wonder. The Great Wall of China. But if you've got to go all the way around every time you forget something in the truck or somebody is like, oh, Bob's here to sign those papers. Oh, Bob, the papers are in the truck. I got to go all the way around, Bob. Bernice, cover for me. I'll be back in six hours. You know, if it's that kind of scenario, I could see the temptation. The excavator is sitting there and you're like, punch a quick hole through here and I'm back at the parking lot. I'll be back in a jiff. Not saying it was, you know, the right thing to do to the ancient wonder. Anyway, story is continuing, investigation continues, so we'll find out. I guess maybe they don't have surveillance cameras all along the Great Wall of China, so they have to do some old fashioned detective work on this. Bringing the weird news of the week to your ear holes. This is what a weird week eight number eight in our countdown of the 10 weird news items of the week is gnomes in the news. Gnomes in the news. Police in the UK are warning people about gnome crime. They say if you find a mysterious garden gnome in your yard, you need to contact the cops and go on high alert. That is me paraphrasing. It could be that robbers have put the gnome in your yard because they're scoping out your place. It's a way to see if you're home. If the robbers come by and they see their gnome hasn't been touched, it tells them that there's probably no one at your house and your place is burglar friendly. If you've been involved in a mystery gnoming, contact your police. I got to say, this one seems like an urban legend to me or something, but I mean, there are real statements from police about this. It just seems like something you would see on Home Alone in the Home Alone movie franchise, Home Alone eight gnome alone. That one, you know, that could be animated. Hold on a second. Writing that one down in the million dollar idea book. Let me know in the comments if you have Steven Spielberg's address. I'd appreciate that. A personal phone number, maybe personal phone number. I think I'd be better on the phone. Seven Mullet World Record. Tammy Menace is a nurse from Tennessee who hasn't cut the party in the back since 1990. You know, business up front party in the back mullet. Tammy was recently in the news for her world record mullet hairstyle, which is longer than she is tall. Her mullet is five foot eight. One time, 33 years ago, she cut her mullet and then she regretted it. She missed it so much and she vowed to immediately start growing a new mullet. Here we are 33 years later. Guinness World Record five foot eight mullet.

This is what a weird week six number six on our countdown. Man interviewed on BBC TV by mistake is back in the news. In case you missed it in 2006, a fellow named Guy went to the BBC for a job interview. At the same time, the TV channel was expecting an expert also named Guy to do a live TV interview. So one was job interview. One was an interview on TV. Well, the long story short is the wrong guy ended up on TV and he did his best to fake his way through it. Well, Guy Cuney is the editor of the technology website News Wireless. Hello. Good morning to you. Good morning. Were you surprised by this verdict today? I'm very surprised to see this verdict to to come on me because I was not expecting that when I came. They told me something else and I'm coming. You got an idea of it. So it's a big surprise in a big surprise. Yes. Yeah. There's a link in our show notes to the whole clip. If you want to check it out. An incredible case of mistaken identity on live television. Well, that fellow that was from 2006. That fellow is back in the news because he would like some of the income that's been generated by his viral video moment. Basically, that's the story. BBC, their YouTube has gotten, you know, maybe five, six million views of the incident. It's been meme -ified and all that. And now he's thinking Guy is thinking, hey, any of that money coming my way? What about Guy? Where's Guy's money? That is me paraphrasing. But if you want to watch the video, read the article. All of that, just click the show notes, show notes, that page number five this week. Record breaking cheese ball is enormous. I don't think I would pronounce the name of the Mexican town correctly. So I would encourage you to read the article. We link to that. But this Mexican town in four hours took a whole lot of stringy cheese and made it into the biggest cheese ball in the world. Type of cheese is called one of the names for it is quesillo. I'm probably saying that wrong also, but it's a stringy cheese in the same way you would make an elastic band ball, you know, out of collecting elastic bands. They took all this stringy cheese and just started wrapping and balling that cheese and kablami. They got a cheese ball weighing in at twelve hundred thirty pounds. It was around three feet across the cheese ball and experts in action. It's hypnotizing is something to see. The video is in the show notes. Congratulations, cheese ballers on a wonderful world record accomplishment. It looked delicious.

You can also check out a new Spotify podcast that we announced on Tuesday, Strike Force 5. Oh, yeah, all the late night hosts, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert. They got together. They had been doing Zooms during the writer's strike, and then they decided, you know what, maybe this should just be a podcast, and we'll give all the money to our staff, and that's just what we're going to do. All of a sudden, it seemed like a great idea. I remember talking to Jimmy about it and thinking, this is a great idea. This will never actually happen. They'll never actually do this. Well, they did it, and you can follow it on Spotify, Strike Force 5. You can get it wherever you get your podcasts. Can't wait to listen to this. Super excited. Those five guys all on a Zoom together, just cracking jokes. I'm ready. So there you go. On this podcast, it's the second annual My Guy Fantasy Draft. Craig Horlbeck, Danny Kelly, Danny Heifetz from The Ringer Fantasy Show. We're going to come on, and we're going to talk about all of our guys that we like, dislike, that we're afraid of in the fantasy football season, and then went to Cleveland to find Garrett Bush, who is kind of a big guy there. I got to say, he's kind of a guy. He's going to tell us what to expect from the Browns, who are the most confusing 2023 team. A lot of that has to do with Deshaun Watson, which Deshaun Watson, are we going to get? How do we feel about Deshaun Watson in 2023, just in general? And where is Cleveland Sports going? What's happened to them this century? All the good, all the bad. And he's going to lay all of it out for us. So this is a really good podcast. Can't wait. First, our friends from Pro Chip. All right, it's the second annual My Guy Fantasy Draft. Our Ringer Fantasy Show guys are here. Danny Kelly, Danny Heifetz, Craig Horlbeck, my rewatchables producer, always nice when he pops on the BS. So we did this last year. We didn't win any awards, but sometimes you don't need to win awards. Sometimes when something's great, when it works, you just kind of know it, and we're going to run it back. Heifetz, you want to explain what this gimmick is? Yeah, it's you text us a bunch of ridiculous categories and then we kind of build an entire show, right? No, it's fun, though. It's just like it's a draft, but it's not a draft. And then it's it's vibes. It's a vibes episode. Yeah, we can agree on this. The concept is like you go into a fantasy draft. We all have the same kind of guides, same kind of rankings, but it doesn't capture the love. It doesn't capture the irrational. I just believe in this guy. It doesn't capture Craig thinking that that Pickens is going to end up being Justin Jefferson this year. There's just some things he already is or fear PTSD from bad draft picks from the past. I actually listened to a lot of the pod we did last year, and it was pretty funny hearing some of the guys we were like completely enamored by that ended up being bust. And then there were some other ones that I was surprised by the accuracy of it. Danny Kelly, can you ever be right in a fantasy draft? Can you ever go perfect? One in a million. It's like picking stocks, you know, if you get one good one, then you're set. Last year, mine was Romandre. I listened to our show last year, too. Feel like I nailed that one. Didn't get some other ones right. So that's, you know, we don't have to re litigate those. But Romandre, I'm calling that one. The take I was proudest of last year was fearing Cooper Cup after the year that he had just not liking the scent of something. This is veteran experience. I've been doing fantasy, I think since like 1989, 1990, something like that. All right. So I'm going to rip through the categories here. And then we're going to go at them one at a time. This is not, it's a draft, but it's not a draft because if we all have the same guy for a category of two of us have it, it's fine. We're okay. Um, the categories are my one true love, the guy that we just liked the most, my crazy pills guy. Do you want to explain the crazy pills thing, Craig? Uh, I think it could go either way, right? It's either you feel like you're taking crazy pills because nobody else likes the guy you like, or it's the other way around where you feel like you're taking crazy pills because everybody likes this guy and you don't understand it at all. So there's a little variance on that one. You can go either way. There's the my I absolutely hate myself for doing this guy, which seems to happen over and over again in fantasy where you go in there, drive like, well, I'm not going to end up with Russell Wilson. Uh, that was the example I used last year. It could be the example you use again this year. I'm not even gonna spend a dollar for Russell Wilson. Then it gets to the 17th round. If you're in a booger eater draft or, you know, you have $5 left for five guys and it's like, ah, Russell Wilson, Sean Payton, and all of a sudden you have Russell Wilson and you have no idea how he ended up on your team. So that is the, my absolutely hate myself for doing this guy. Uh, there's the, I'm going to add this category. It's a little sub category. The I'm staying away from that whole team team. There's teams where you're just like, I'm out, I'm just blind out. I don't want one person from that team. I'll see, we'll see if we agree on that team. Then we have the, my shameless Homer pick guy. That's going to be really, I mean, Craig, you don't even have to go. Uh, although there could be their tickets like plus 500, but I think we know pick is going to be there. There's the, my, I wouldn't take him even if he was free guy. So you're putting them on your D and D do not draft list. I had McCaffrey as my guy for this last year, which looked brilliant for about six weeks. Then he got traded a machine of an offense. We have the, my, that 2022 booty call isn't happening again guy, which is a new category for this year. This is the, you stumbled into somebody in the free agent auction, maybe in November, you wrote them for a couple of weeks, some fond memories, but you know, as a one night stand or, you know, as a three week stand and you're not going back, then we have the, this is a classic one. The somebody's got to get points on that team guy. We just look at all the teams and like, well, I don't know. Everybody scores 300 someone's catching passes on that team. Someone's rushing for 970 yards. There is the, my sorry, I'm sorry. That's too rich for my blood guy where you look at the draft guide and you see some of the salaries next to the guys. Then you go wait at $47. So Najee Harris was my guy for this last year. And I was proud of that one. There's the, my $1 QB guy. You're not, he's not going to make it break a draft, but you're also kind of secretly stashing away in your head. And we all have our $1 QB. There is the, my I'd be afraid to look on Tuesday and see the red flag guy, which I've added this year. I didn't even tell you about this category. You take the guy and it's going great. Eloy Jimenez is the ultimate baseball example of this. It's going great. You're feeling awesome. And then you go on there on a Tuesday and there's the red flag with the yellow box that there's news. And you're just like, Oh no. Oh God, what happened? And there's certain guys who just, it happens every year. A cousin of that, the, my, I know there's a 99 % chance he's getting hurt again, but God damn, I can't resist this guy guy. Then we have the, my Cooper cup. It's a year after the year guy. So I named this category after Cooper cup. So who is it this year? They had their year last year. Don't do it again. Don't get sucked in five more. The my, I just want everyone on that offense. I don't care guy. The my it's a year too early, but fuck it guy. The my missionary position. We've all had him guy. The my, I fell for the preseason hype guy. And then finally the, my I'd never root for an injury, but he is one injury away. That guy. All right. So we're going to start with my one true love. We're going to go and we're going to go on one, two, three, four on the zoom. And then for the second round, then the second guy will go, Danny Kelly, you're up. All right. My one true love. Who is it? I got to go with Tony Pollard for the Cowboys. I'm irrationally in love with this guy. I've been saying it. I think there's nothing you can say. It convinced me that he's not the best player in the NFL. Like, like just pound for pound, the best player in the NFL. Um, you know, last year he finished as the RV seven this year. He's going to be playing, I think more snaps, getting way more opportunities. If he can get up to like the same level of opportunities as Ekeler and CMC, you know, cause he's in that style of runner. I think this guy could finish as a top three running back in the NFL. And so I am, I'm just like full as a gentleman said, full bloom in love with Tony Pollard. I just can't, I can't help it. So in the ringer fantasy guide, he's 13th right now and he's gone for $42 in auction. So you think that's low? Yeah, I would, I would, I actually had Pollard too. Wow. We all have Pollard. Wait, did you too, Krik? I'm scared now. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, that's, well, that's, that's, this is a sign that, yeah, this is a terrible sign, but I just, I mean, just to pile on to DK stats here, Zeke had 12 touchdowns last year and Nick and Tony Pollard was a top 10 running back. Like what else do you need to hear? Like every time Tony Pollard was on the field, he was the best running back in the league. And now Zeke's gone. Like I rest my case. This is the pregame show where they all pick the same team to win a football and then that team loses. So you should probably stay away from Tony Pollard. Wait. So all three of you had Tony Pollard for this? Yeah, I can give you some. We did not discuss this before coming on. I didn't expect that. Oh, my God. Talk about groups and Jesus. You know, it's, you know, what sucks about this is that means when I have my big auction draft in a week and all my friends are going to be listening to this. And when Tony Pollard comes up, I'm not going to get them because they're all going to bid them up for $57 if I want to get them. Well, Bill's like, oh my God. Well, here's the argument. Rich Rebar, who works for Warren Sharpe, he's at Sharpe Football Analysis and he is a really good comp, which is basically Melvin Gordon was playing ahead of Austin Eckler for years. And everyone's begging for Austin Eckler to get the job. And then Austin Eckler finally got the job and the charges got rid of Melvin Gordon. And then Austin Eckler still wasn't really a first round pick. And we talked ourselves out of it. We hemmed it on. This is Tony Pollard again. It's like Zeke is finally after five years out of Dallas. And we're like, yeah, any point you get Tony Pollard, that's actually crazy. Like, honestly, you could get him for forty five bucks. Austin Eckler is going to go for 60. Tony Pollard would probably just be better than Austin Eckler this year. I kind of genuinely mean this. Tony Pollard should maybe be the first pick in fantasy football. Right? You can convince me. Kind of genuinely. Well, he does have a great offensive line. There are going to be a couple of games against bad teams where he, you know, you have him on Thanksgiving or something and he puts up the four touchdown hundred and eighty yard game. I can see it. So I guess I'm up then because you guys all agreed. You can have anybody you want. My one true love this year, Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles, who I also like for MVP. So. Last year, he missed two games and they also blew out what what was a D .K. like seven, eight team, seven, eight games where they just like in the fourth quarter, they didn't even really have to play offense. They're just kind of running out of the string. Yeah, I don't think their defense is going to be as good this year. Sheila Kapadia on the on the NFL show has been talking about this. I think it's to be better than he thinks, but it won't be as good on it. And their schedule is tougher. But, you know, is it possible that he's like a four thousand one thousand guy with some sort of combination of 40 to D like everyone agrees they have the best offensive line in the league. Everyone agrees the one to A .J. Brown, Devonta Smith punch is way up there. And I'm saying like Schrager on TV this week was saying Devonta Smith, this is the year he jumps up to the chase class. So we have that with Dallas Goddard, who everybody thinks is the best all around tight end in the league, the guy who actually blocks and plays three downs, running backs, whatever. Put anyone behind there and they'll gain 80 yards. And then he's going to get a lot of the goal line carries. I think he's my top QB this year. I think I would take him before everybody else. So I don't even think it's that controversial. What do you think of that one? He is, I think you're right. I think the key point you have there is that he barely played in the fourth quarter last year. That's the key thing. He was already in a per game basis. He was the best quarterback in fantasy last year and he barely played the fourth quarter. Yeah. So you could argue he hasn't even reached the ceiling yet. He's our number one guy on the guide right now, I believe. Shameless plug for fantasyfootball .300 .com. He's our 21st player. We have like all our rankings there. And yeah, he has the highest floor and the highest ceiling. My favorite stat about Jalen Hurts, other than 18 rushing touchdowns in 18 games last year, Jalen Hurts had more games over 30 points than under 20. That's everything you want in a quarterback. Well, so he's number one in our guide, but I still feel like in a draft, Mahomes is going over him because of the Mahomes. It's just the most fun to have Mahomes. The R. And I actually think that's a little nuts this year. DK, Hurts is I think either 12 to 1 or 11 to 1 on FanDuel for MVP. And I think those odds are the most out of whack of all the MVP odds, because that's, if you're going to say the MVP is going to come from an awesome team, they're probably one of the five teams that has a chance to go 13 and 4, 14 and 3, something like that. He, they have the most talent on offense, I think, of any team that's going to be in the MVP conversation and we've seen him get better every year. So why is he 11 to 1, 12 to 1? Shouldn't he be like 6 to 1, 7 to 1? Shouldn't it be where Josh Allen is? I don't, is it just because of the previous like impressions that he was a, what was he a third round pick or second round pick and maybe hold on to that for too long? Or maybe it's just because he's surrounded by such a good team. I don't know. But yeah, like you said, he's improved pretty much every season he's been playing, even going back to college. You know, from everything that we've heard, he is maniacal about like working and leadership and just all the things, all the intangibles. And then, of course, you know, if he takes a jump as a passer this year, you know, that's going to be huge for him because he's already like one of the best running quarterbacks. He's double digit rushing touchdowns in the last two years. You know, everything about him screams just, you know, like the face of the franchise season. He's everything they want. And so I could see it like from a narrative point of view, for sure. It reminds me of what you used to have with Russell Wilson when he was alive.
A highlight from Starfield Article Bias, Crazy Back and forth in gaming - Bonus Episode #7
"What's this a podcast on? What are we looking at monday? Yes indeed. We're going to talk about a bunch of stuff. I want to talk about the back and forth for the starfield discussion as well as a lot of other discussion that's going about around these games and around 2023 in particular and sort of the fundamental problems we're seeing with some of the coverage, some of the back and forth and why we're starting to see, I would say confusing messages on a lot of games and I want to dive into that and discuss it. So a little bit of behind the scenes baseball for the industry as well as just some excitement about games coming in 2023. Thanks for being a subscriber. We're over one million on youtube and podcast is always doing well. If you don't get a chance to watch it live, it'll always be on Spotify and itunes. First, let's talk about confusing coverage coverage that is definitely in 2023 is becoming sort of a heel turn. I would say to take a wrestling turn from a lot of video game fans. They're starting to see what they consider to be especially websites vice doing versa kind of articles where one day they'll say one thing and one day they'll say almost exactly the opposite and why that's happening more and more so. And it is, I've done a lot of SEO searches and this is something that's definitely grown in the last two or three years and we've seen an increase in maybe the last four. But in particular this year it's actually grown to the point to where it's about 500 % higher rate than it has been in prior years. Why is that? The first thing was a change or a continual adjustment that we see on a lot of mobile phones. A lot of mobile phones are starting to put news sites on their home page and with android I believe anything that runs and can interact directly with google. If you have your phone open to the home screen and I think it's if you swipe left, you immediately go to a news page and this page is curated news for you. Now ignoring that there's curated news sites for a lot of people and many of us with too many news sites, too many websites, too many review sites. We use curated sites anyway. You might use something like feed Lee, which allows for you to take a bunch of websites and say I only want their data, but a bunch of websites could be five for one person and 250 for somebody else. Nevertheless, regardless of how you get there, that has made a huge change to the SEO or the search engine optimization for a lot of websites. And I ended up talking to two people from two different very big PC and console gaming websites and they both stated that their companies are pushing for them to get onto that curated instant home feed even higher than they used to with google, especially with the worry about AI and how google might handle the search screens. These kind of pages won't necessarily be impacted right away by the AI search results that we might see in google and being and so forth as we move forward. So what are they doing? Well, they're doing a tip for tack kind of thing where they're doing a positive video or a positive article on a game and then a negative one and I've been asked a lot of times why exactly is that? What's the law of diminishing returns? Let me give an example. Let's say I do a video about starfield and I get 100 % of all fans watching it and it's a positive video talking about space guns and exploration. Then let's say I do another positive video and it's about companions and quests. Here's one of the problems, both of those being positive videos and or website articles. What ends up happening is you get a diminishing return of the same fandom and that fandom will start to look and say, hey, I don't want too much. This is getting into spoilers. I only want a particular thing. And so that 100 % will drop to 95 % or drop to 90 % and then 80 and then 70 and then 75. Additionally, if the title and the overall article skews too positive, then what will happen is the people who are negative against it, whether you or I agree with that kind of stuff primarily and certainly before a game has come out being a little bit questionable in our eyes, it doesn't matter. There's a lot of people like that and they won't read or watch that first one and that will continue on and on. So the idea that you can hit both sides and we see a lot of times where they will actually task writers to have one writer write a positive article and one write a negative article. Now you can also skew negative all the time because people can be mad about everything. In fact, you can be more enraged about anything because the enraged part doesn't really have any scientific fact behind it. The difference between let's say a positive video about quests, you have to use examples of those quests and how they work. But let's say you want to do a negative article about quests. You can just list things that the quests for sure don't have and pretend they're negative and there's an unlimited number of those because there is only a limited number of quests and how they're put together. So if you find them positive, there's only a certain amount of time you can talk about those before you run out of actual scientific data behind it of actual examples behind it. But there is no requirement for actual examples of things missing. You can say, Hey man, there's no pizza quest. Here's my giant article about that. If there is a pizza quest, well as a website, you can probably only write one article about it. But 10 people can say, well, there's no abbey's pizza quest. There's no pizza pizza quest and you can just continue to build on that negativity. And we've seen some websites that have done that right now where they've got 10 2030 articles negative about starfield. And this is something we see or used to see even more on the Youtube side where you see a lot of videos negative about a game negative about a game. But I would say that with Youtube, the sheer amount of creators on Youtube has made it so that curation becomes difficult if you jump into that kind of let's say bombastic over the top kind of negativity. And we've seen a real reduction in views in that kind of stuff. The drama that exists is usually Youtube drama that exists in the Jake paul kind of arena and games when they come out, you can certainly see videos about that. But we're talking again about pre about prior to the game releasing and that's why we're getting it. This is why we're getting the tit for tat. There are actual writers being tasked. You write a positive article about this game, you write a negative one and I'm mentioning starfield right now. That means nothing. I could mention any game and this is the kind of stuff that can happen. And the larger the game, the larger the chance that the SEO or the search engine optimization that numbers indicate there is going to be an audience for that. So as Spiderman comes up, this will be definitely something that you'll see with Spiderman as well. And that's why you're seeing this back and forth. And that's why it can be confusing, especially with video games. I do want to point something out, not just video games. We'll talk about Youtube itself with Youtube. There is a net history unless you delete your videos as well. So when I say something and record something in a Youtube video, there is a nested history that continues from that point on with me on camera or the game on camera and me talking. That is way different than an article where somebody has to parse the entire article and there is no video, there's nothing. It's very easy to lose yourself and 1000 articles trying to find one where somebody said something negative where it's actually quite easy to just go back to, let's say a C G and find whatever video or historic evidence you're looking for. It's one of the reasons why not always, but one of the reasons why, especially on Youtube, you see a little bit more of a historic pattern that goes on because there can be some searching or at least an easier to identify historic pattern that goes on with a video creator. And this isn't a he said, she said or against four kind of situation. This is quite simply looking up SEO and in the last couple days just searching for this and tracking it down. It's quite easy to see there is factual data that this is occurring. This is something that also when I talk to people who are journalists that I trust who have told me a couple of these stories, I'm just like, I get it. You know, the only real way, especially with a lot of these news websites being hit by other kinds of news around the world. If they're a website that handles all kinds of news, hitting video game news is quite difficult. You, you know, you want to talk about the positivity of sea of stars or something like that? Well, that's not going to have a huge SEO. But if you want to talk about the negatives for star field or the leaks, those kind of things will be big enough numbers that it's easy to sell to your editor. It's easy to sell to the group that's running your website. Now let's jump into the tech a little bit. I want to talk a little bit about FSR and DLSS, FSR three. In fact, that's coming out here soon and why it's a little bit disappointing to be honest. So one of the problems when you look at any of these upscaling techniques, which by the way, some of them work incredibly well and it also depends on the game and it depends on the initial resolution that you're going to use. And for anybody who whoops, I hit my mic for anybody who doesn't understand what these upscaling systems are. They take multiple samples from a number of frames prior and then they build a higher resolution frame for you to actually see displayed. And so this is actually faster than having the game render that higher resolution display. And what's interesting is because they're trained using AI and because they're so smart, a lot of times, not all the time, but a lot of times you'll actually see a output that has more detail than the native wood because it's building together patterns and stuff. So for example, a rocky face, people might say, how does it have more detail? Well, one of the reasons why is because that four K output is done and it's sampled from, let's say, the native actual frame. What goes on with FSR and with DLSS is they're taking multiple samples and they're building out data including, let's say the grooves, the cracks that you may see in the rock. And they're actually finding more data with more samples and they're using pattern recognition. And when they put up that four K picture, depending on what they're creating, but with all of their sample data from AI, looking at thousands of rocks, millions, probably of rocks, I should say millions. What you can get is actually a more detailed texture and we're starting to see that and it's great, but we're also starting to see a lot of games where people are worried that FSR and DLSS are crutches that companies are not optimizing. I would say that that is possible and it certainly happened with a couple of games. It's also possible as somebody who's read the steam survey forum during the podcast recently is that a lot of people want their ancient ass cards to run games where the cards are actually pre PS four or PS four pro at least. And we are getting this division that's occurring now. This is something that if you want an actual example of this where we can see this example play out perfectly, it's WMR, the VR system that Microsoft created. One of the problems developers talk about all the time with this is that there were no set structures with WMR. So you could have 50 headsets, all 50 headsets with a slightly different FOV, all 50 headsets with a slightly different resolution, all 50 headsets with different pixel per inch. square And you would end up having it quite difficult to deliver what you would consider to be an optimized headset optimized kind of delivery. And we're starting to see that here. This is something that I'm not too worried about. I see consoles do this where they're aiming for their own internal up resin. We see that work well, sometimes not so well in the case of immortals of avium, but we see it work quite well in other places and we'll see this continually be fixed and continually be checked. We'll see FSR used for upscaling and now FSR has their own frame generation as does DLSS, of course, with the new DLSS. One of the problems with FSR's frame generation is this though. So with DLSS, they want you to have a somewhat high frame rate before you turn it on. And one of the reasons why that is is because regardless of how many fake frames you create, let's say you want to go from 60 to 120, your pulling rate for your controller or your movement is usually at still the exact frame rate that you were getting delivered to you prior to using the frame generation. One of the problems I noticed with FSR and I read this and I did talk to one developer about it to ask them if my worries were correct and they said generally they are it's we'll just have to see how this plays out. But one of the issues with FSR three is they stated that you pretty much need to be at 60 prior to turning it on. Now they want you to be very high in DLSS as well, but I think there were people who were testing as low as like in 38 and forties and stuff like that and still getting very good results. But they do induce latency already. Both of them do. And then you also have this polling rate issue. Why is this a particular issue for FSR three? Well, FSR three is a software format. It is not done via the hardware like DLSS, which uses the Nvidia cards hardware. FSR is agnostic. It can be used on any single device, which is one of its biggest bonuses for upscaling. When you change a lower resolution texture or a lower resolution screen to a higher one when it comes to frame generation, though this is using compute, meaning it's actually going to be using your systems power when there are gaps. And so the idea is, is what they're hoping for is that you already have the power to get up to 50 or 60. So there should be a little bit more power to possibly get more frame generation. And that's a little bit different than the way DLSS does it. Now there's all these idiosyncrasies with both of them. But if you look at it, the hardware and the cores that actually work on the Nvidia hardware are built and made for this. And when it when you look at FSR, it's not really like that. It's just hey, these work on anything and you can throw it up and it should do something. We're gonna have to see how this plays out. But I would say when you look at games like Starfield that's locked at 30 and people are thinking, oh, Starfield is going to save the day by have or is going to have its day saved by having FSR turn on. And we've heard from Todd Howard who said it sometimes runs at 60. That's not the same thing as all the time. And one of the problems that you can get is let's say you lock your frame generation at 60 frames per second, but it drops as low as 30 and then goes up to 60. But you're always using frame generation between 30 and 60 to lock it at 60 on your console. The problem is is that you will actually be playing with latency polling data as low as 30 and then up to 60. And what that can actually do is induce a very weird feeling of not necessarily judder, but almost like legginess that occurs over a longer period of time than you may expect. It's not instant, it's something that occurs as you continue to play a game where you're running and you make a slight adjustment and one side one time that adjustment because maybe it's running at a great frame rate at that particular time, that adjustment seems to happen almost simultaneously with your movement of the game pad. But then the next time there's just a bit of leg and that can actually cause, I wouldn't say motion sickness, but it can cause a little bit of almost like a brain blurriness where you're playing it, you're like something's up. It just doesn't feel exactly as snappy as we want it to be now. I don't know if they'll do that. We may see an announcement that FSR three, you know, pops out the day that star field pops out. But this is just something that happens with star field or not star field that happens with FSR happens with the LSS happens with what is the intel one Xe SS. These are expected when it comes to software solutions versus Nvidia's hardware solution. I'm a big fan of not using hardware solutions, at least on the PC side because you're locking out a certain group. However, I will say, I think when you look at this, you can see that technically the hardware side is obviously the positive side at this point and is the better of the two or three options. So I want to also say again, thanks to everybody who's a subscriber. We're looking at a really tough time for coverage with all these previews and all these reviews. I've had a ton of coverage that I've had to pass up. It has been a gnarly 2023, especially in these last couple of weeks. One of the things I talk about all the time is, ah, you know, I love games and it's no big deal. I love being busy. I do love being busy. I think it's great, but this is ridiculous. I mean, it's ridiculous. There's games that are previewing for 2024 right now and you know, article ability or not article, but YouTube for ability a video game that may be out in February of 2024, but they just happen to pop it here right now. So it can be quite difficult. There's a lot of titles and a lot of titles don't know what other titles are doing with their embargoes. So you get that and speaking of embargoes, you guys might have seen my tweet about embargoes. So one of the things that it doesn't infuriate me as much as it shocks me, somebody would be okay with this, but we saw a lot of people saying, you talked to insiders who can't talk because they're under NDA, but they say Starfield is this or they say Spiderman is this or they say blah blah blah is this. And a lot of times I'll pop off on twitter and be like, dude, I don't know who is breaking NDA, but you're an idiot because I got pinged 30 times in the last three days about Starfield. Do you have Starfield? Yo, I love your stuff, bro. Your stuff so great person's not subscribed. Person doesn't follow person hasn't done a like on any twitter. Obviously they're not. They just found out that I might have Starfield and they're pinging out and they want written, they want written explanations of your experiences with a game. That shit will come back to burn you. So any new youtubers who are watching right now are listening. If you're thinking for even a second, hey man, you know what? I might talk about this because I could be known as an insider. Maybe this person will come back and talk to me again later. Watch out man because you're writing something down. That person can take a screenshot. We've seen nothing but unlimited examples of this shit. So if somebody is asking you to speak on a game that's under NDA, don't just don't tell them to fuck off man. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous and it's putting you on a hot seat that could come up at any time later. Let's say you love a person who's running a website or a youtube channel. You love them. You're talking to them. They ask you for some inside NDA data. So you tell them and then what happens? Maybe they get an editor and that editor doesn't like you and that editor starts looking back at chats. Maybe that editor leaks a little bit of data about something you've said in a tweet that kind or in a in a discord, that kind of stuff can happen. That kind of stuff happens all the time. I used to remember one of the jobs I worked at, I worked out for 13 years and you would get people who were really close to the boss and they would be doing shit that maybe for a year or two they'd get away with and then a new boss would replace that boss and everybody at the company would just be like that guy's gone. Like there's no, that person is going to find out, they're going to find out that there's, you know, little idiosyncrasies with the way they do their job or there's things that they haven't been doing that they should be, they're either going to be working really hard or they're going to fail and we saw it every single time and that kind of stuff can happen. We're speaking out of turn on NDA's and stuff. So I just want to point that out. If you're listening, just don't man, just don't, you know, I have people that will be like, do you have a game or blah blah blah and I'll be like, you know, yeah, depending on who the person is and then, you know, sometimes they'll ping and they'll ask more data and I'll just a lot of times I'll just be like, yeah, not going to answer until the game comes out because you never quite know, you know, there's a couple people, very few that I trust and that trust only lasts as long as that person is the same kind of person, the only real person you can trust is you. And I would say trust yourself to be OK with not telling everybody that you're in on the secret. Speaking of secrets. So for the last like couple years, pizza prices have been raising and I've been going to cheap pizzas and I realized a couple of days ago, I was like, oh, you know what? Abby's, they're a local brand, somewhat local, but they're there in a couple of places around, you know, other states. But I notice I'm mostly in Oregon and I was getting all these, you know, advertisements for Abby's and I had skipped out on them because they were expensive, but I hadn't realized that all the other pizzas had got as expensive as they did. So a couple days ago, I was like, yeah, I'm going to order an Abby's pizza. We got this pizza and I'm telling you, oh, my God, it's a secret. It's a secret that I want out. That pizza is so goddamn good. It was ridiculously good. And it's so funny because I was getting pizza from, you know, a lot of these places that are like, look at us. If you want your oysters on pizza, you can have it. You're like, listen, stupid. I want pepperoni or salami. I don't need your fucking seafood on a pizza. It doesn't exist on a pizza. Seafood on a pizza is accidentally spilling your surf and turf on to the pizza. That's it. It's the only reason you would ever see shrimp on a fucking pizza. I don't care what anybody says. So the idea that I want that kind of stuff, whatever. I was usually just getting your pepperonis, your Canadian bacons, that kind of stuff. And so I got it a couple days ago. I got the most generic pizza from them. It was a I got a pepperoni and I got a Canadian bacon and pineapple. And I got to tell you, man, I took a bite of that and I was like, oh my God, this is good. Leveled up my pizza game. Well, returned, really. Technically, you could say I was just in the down years because I used to love them and started going with other companies, just some cheap no names and stuff, because, you know, at that point when everything was so cheap and some places were so expensive, you're like, ah, it's fine. I don't need them. And then once everything sort of raised up to that price, it was like, yeah, I'll jump in. Why did I bring up pizza? Because I got more today and I cannot wait to bite into it. I got a bunch of games to review and sometimes you need a little snacky snack and pizza is the way to do it. Also, I did end up finding out that I can get some some cheaper prices on shirts. I have a coupon for if you go to what is that Teespring, I think is the company I use their spreadsheet. You can see it on the YouTube channel. There should be a code that you can use. ACG dash gaming and get shirts for about 10 or 15 % off. I did want to point out as one of the YouTubers, one of the few YouTubers with an all over shirt, meaning the printing is everywhere. It's not just a front square or something stupid like that. We do do more of the gamer style, the esports style shirts, and I know that's not for everybody, but I love them. I think some of those designs are wicked. There there's no profit, by the way, zero. And that's fine. I want the name of the channel out there. So I have no issue and I want somebody to have a cool shirt. But I'm surprised how expensive they are. Like, I mean, they're expensive. I saw somebody who was trying to find a cheaper shirt being made somewhere and shirt prices have gone up for getting created. But again, you should be able to see that. If you don't see the code and you need it, you can ping me on Twitter and I can give you the code for that for for cheaper shirts. Reason why I bring it up is in just one video, I saw 2200 people click on a shirt and I was like, oh, but 22 people, 2200 people didn't buy it. I'm like, yeah, it's probably because we're choosing that all over print, which is so expensive. But you know what? I love it. I love it. I've got a bunch of them myself. I just I absolutely love the all over kind of print style. I've never been a fan of T shirts with just the logo on the front. You know, Star Wars. I've been a fan of the art going all over the shirt since I was really young and we had a shirt place when I was a kid that did our baseball shirts and they faked it. They found a way because this is prior to the technology really being easy to do, not like just a tie dye where they're using dyes. But these guys, they were really smart with how they did designs and they were able to basically do the design all the way around the shirt. And I remember like everybody, I'm pretty sure we won a couple games just because our friggin jerseys looked so wicked. People were like, What the fuck? Now, of course, no big deal. I think it's time to wrap this one up. Yeah, it's only 23 minutes. But guys, I am swamped with games. I got to end up getting some of these videos out. I skipped out on two or three previews this week. Just because there were so many to do. It's a good problem to have, but I do have a bunch of work to do this week. So I'm going to skip out on this, get back to work, start taking care of dem dogs. If you are not a part of the patron, come on by. It supremely helps the channel. We are just absolutely demonetized for the craziest shit. Atlas Fallen got demonetized and I still to this. They never explain why. So when you come into the patron, five bucks gets you the discord and I think it's awesome. I mean, it's definitely become my social hub for everything. Games, movies, pizza talk. Right now there's been, you know, over 1000 posts already. People just yakking up games old and new. It's a great place. You can stream some stuff, hang out, do some D &D, some tabletop sim, discuss anything you want to discuss in a cool environment. Other than that, I want to say peace out to everybody. Once again, thanks for subscribing and you'll see some reviews and previews for me later this week. Peace out.
"five bucks" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"Five bucks. You get to enjoy four hours show, get outside and have a good time. That's incredible. And you guys weren't in their last year because all the nonsense going on but your blood back I'm glad we're glad you're back. And we'll talk to you next year.

Caller Concerned Inflation, Higher Priced Goods Will Get Worse Under Biden
"It. But Venezuela has arrived. And Leesburg, Virginia, My husband went to Costco last night here. By five. Okay? Hybrid by for his birthday, our tradition to grill for his birthday. Usually they're $40. Yesterday. They were $90. Wow. We did not have rib eyes last night. It's happening that's like almost double in price, and I'm very scared that it's just going to get worse and worse. I don't want to upset you, but it's definitely going to get worse and you can already see it as I say. People tell me they drive into McDonald's. You can't get anything for really Maybe one meal. A small meal for five bucks used to be able to get a lot for five bucks. You see, the cost of labor is going through the roof in order to keep people working. Even low skilled or no skilled labour because they're competing with the federal welfare state now. That is your tax dollars, So that's driving up prices. There's shortages of items that's driving up prices. And of course, inflation is driving up prices. I went also in Leesburg. To a gas station called sheets and I went to fill up my car. And the the premium price was unbelievable yet it's shot way up and it's not just them. I don't blame them. It's because we were energy independent. Prior to this man taking over and moving into the Oval Office. We're not energy independent anymore. You know, OPEC is back in action. And, of course, Russia gets their pipeline. What do you call these people? If you don't calm, American Marxist, What do you call them? Stupid? He's got dementia. Come on, folks.

"We don't know anything so really. What we want to know is like something we want them to. I don't know tell us. Hey this this happened. Because i don't know you know look at this is this is what my position is. And you know. We've seen the differences in the way niantic kind of interacts with the community interacts with issues. And what we've the feedback that the community is shared with niantic. Like when they do things right is the number one thing is acknowledgement like just acknowledged that something's going on. There's a bad bug like mail medal in. Mpv they they put specifically out there like. Hey there's an issue with mel metal where taking them off line until we fix this and then we'll put it back and it's like all right. Great they're acknowledging it and they just have acknowledged that but is this something. That's like consistent from polka. Polka montlake is pokemon dealing with this or are some pokemon more affected. Like it's weird. We're trying to figure out. Basically we're on the on the alike very science right very immature team resourcing or wasn't shiny shanks was putting together like a database right. Yeah shaney chinks put together a excel sheet. And i asked her to like share. Its formula with me and we put it now on. Google sheets analysts like public. We tweeted it out at like help out like reach more people. And that's basically where we're at now. We have like eighteen or more written down bulk. Amman and some people are helping with the new hashtag. It's hashtag bring my buddy back. Yep actually i bring my buddy back and people are basically lake hashtag. Bring my buddy back. There is a picture of my a l. Electronics used to stand on. Its too late little fins and sale and it will look like funky cool now. It just floats like it doesn't have the sending animation anymore in some bookham on They're like petting animations. Have changed completely to something much more simpler. See that that that's like what's weird to me is that this doesn't seem like it's consistent across all the pokemon like all right. This is a blanket. Thing are all pokemon are going down from three to two emissions. And we're simplifying this animation. Maybe it's maybe it's a resource thing maybe like if something knowledgeable like yeah i either way and and that's really why i wanted to bring you on was because i want to bring awareness to this because you know i've worked with the community for so long and y'all era a very passionate bunch and i think that the way that you've been handling bringing awareness to this issue is a very respectful mature way and and constructive and that's why i was like. Yeah i gotta get behind this and kind of amplify this using this as a kind of platform here. Because i think the way that that the community has handled it has been very respectful and with a lot of couth and that's to be appreciated. So that's why that's why here man so niantic. If you're listening please give us a little acknowledgment like what what's going on here is this is something. That's a bug. is this something that's permanent..

"Angles poses actions whatever right and they basically removed at least one from many pokemon. See that like the the thing that that i thought was peculiar like you're saying like hey maybe this is. This is just the way it is right now. Which is bizarre. I in my opinion. But i would always check in on the note issues page and i didn't see anything about this and it's like why. Why isn't this thing like. Why isn't there some at least acknowledgement like missing animations during buddy adventure. Because really. that's what's going to separate a like you're saying that the real ability to to to get granular with what you're pokemon is doing. What the behavior of the pokemon is you. You're going to get those unique animations. It doesn't make sense to me that they would just pull it. Why yeah. i don't get any weird. And like i feel like i don't have my theories of course tinfoil hat and everything but sure Most of the animations they were changed for some something much simpler so like Real louis to like jump up in the air and throw up air bunch and like in celebration really complex animation. Now he likes files and vibes. Laurean leeann yeah they would just like jump up Really happy move their tails like move their front legs like if there were like a galloping horse on two legs you know brian and now they just smile and it it kinda like effective mostly the people were like really into one bokram on real lou and you love you love in your taking pictures of real lou and all of a sudden you have one less animation in your basically are placing area has been cut third right thirty three percent which is like i don't know i feel like as an ar company We're expecting more not less and I feel agnostic is doing was was doing a great job in like getting ghosn To be better and better and better and there's this southern very secret. Non informative change hand. We're like what's happening here. Adl she answers. We don't know if it's a bug if it send its final win. It's bulk owned company..

"But let's let's look at the big picture up till now the whole shebang of go fast that we just covered. Is anything missing from this event of what you would wanna see because i have something. That's sticking out like a sore thumb to me that they haven't talked balbo. Do you think anything's missing. Do do we do. We get that one trade that we could just do from anywhere. No but i agree with you light. That's trading trading is not been mentioned not an increase of forty k not an increase the amount of special trades. You could do. That's what i would like to see. Let me do five special trains. Let me do yeah man. That was like the fucking physical. Go fest's is you have the trading areas like you could for a bunch of regionals for decks because you are allowed five times. What was five special trains today. So mike that i believe so. Yeah that's what they need to bring back something with trading but yeah our maybe like a a trainer challenge like both days like you know if if like whatever team wins like. Every team that participates you know like or gets over like the fifty percent mark or something. What do you mean like valor instinct..

"Me and my chinese. Yeah yeah yeah but faulk dude even the. Let's let's say don't buy a ticket. This is still an amazing event. Even without the event ticket. Yeah like plenty of spawns plenty raids. Plenty of shift do i. I just can't. I can't imagine a better price besides like free ninety nine but five dollars man like you can't go wrong. I think that it clearly defines the free verse paid track on the event. And when you look at all the fucking shit you get for five bucks. I don't. I don't think there's going to be a single fucking voice saying like it ain't worth it like that argument..
"five bucks" Discussed on Lured Up - A Pokémon GO Podcast
"Yes but like sock sock in throw. I've been just waiting for them to say. Oh those are going to be flipped in. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah all right time for day to Second day member last year was team go rocket which was okay for some and was dragged for others I don't know anyone that was like overly excited to do all the go rockets stuff on day to go last year. But now we're gonna have day to go fast being focused on raids. Everyone loves doing fucking rate. So that's that's good and the blog post doesn't have a lot of details here but it does promise to bring back fan favorites. I don't know what that means on a who that means. I don't know if it's let's say tinfoil foil hat and we're going to be. They don't tons of people gathering together. So i would assume that we're going to have a lot of shiny potential one-star raids like esper- zigzag june galeria usually only additional new chinese. Not just like shiny asper. Okay what whatever. I'm just saying like all a bunch of once. One stars that could be shiny. What if they bring every legendary back like what would be like fucking the wormhole fuck me. All the regis's educated. Guess maybe but now talking every released fucking legend man. I can't wait to just raid tons of like sui koon and almost all my god on some other over their shit rated. I mentioned reggie rock. I just can't wait. Oh my gosh are so excited. All pok mon appearing more frequently in the wild from and incense from saturday will also be appearing on sunday during even hours. So you can lighten up with the fomo on saturday for your catches because those bookham on will be available again on sunshine. Go now us or you're poco ball plus during these raids so you can. At least catch things was not catching. Now here's a question. I have fleas. Listen we have the habitats breaking things down and segmenting the spawn pools on saturday though. Same pokomo we're going to be available on sunday. I don't think there's going to be habitat rotation on sunday doesn't say anything about that. So does that mean that all the pokemon from saturday. We'll just be jumbled in spawn pool because that could be kinda fun where like you know if you look back at saturday in the jungle you can get shot. But in the desert and you can get fly gone so you would never be able to catch chats alongside flagons during different habitats. But maybe on. Sunday. they're all in one pool. I don't know how that's gonna work. We'll have to pay attention to that. But that could be kinda cool. How'd you pay attention to it. No one i'm catching everything anyway. Rug i don't give a shit -actly exactly But yeah we those are just kind of like some of the details. I don't know if that's enough to get people excited like what the rates are going to be allah. I don't know. I don't know how it's gonna work with raids on the highway. Suggest there would be a lot of one in three star raids that everybody can do because you only need a few people for three star raids and you're thinking on like a a a com consumer standpoint on this like. Yeah yeah want as many rates to be able to be completed as possible and one is you spend most passes. Yeah yeah i mean. Radically in financially the ba- smartest move and if they can all be shines. Don't get you sanded. Did you see like the the letter that was posted on the niantic blog from john hanky kind of like talking about the future and talking about how yes..

"And then lose this is this is pretty hot. A bunch of new chinese being released into the event wismer chime echo and audino and tim poll making their shiny debut echo fest. So four new chinese right there. This is again. This is kind of like a terrible for everyone. So it's not just ticketed yet when we're still talking about the free experience that's some. That's some hot shit. What do you think of these new shiny. And what do you think of them being available to everyone. Now think back to last year where it was like it. Did it really matter if you had a ticket when it came to shine as the rate like like it's always weird when you think about the free version versus the paid version like do you think there's going to be more chance to catch a shiny if you have a ticket i'd imagine so right. I demanded show. 'cause you'd have more pokemon bonding with incense you'd have more pokemon spawning that like are relative to the event so if you want a specific one yeah i don't know and then again with the with the costume glaring x. Gounon ponytail like it. They'll be cute to have like a couple of also be shiny though. Yeah so you get whatever you try to go for and you try to get the luck. Lucky ones you try to shine. Get a shiny one there again. They don't necessarily matter you just getting them for cosmetics. It's like peak. Choose right now. I know but the the fact being since these are not their event spawns. But they're not like incense events bonds like does that mean that the the rare will be full odds. You know what i mean like. this is remember. This is the free event. So this is all i know. Is you best. Be plan from ten from from nine fifty nine whether you get a ticket or not whether you gotta take it or not all the way till six all right. That's the first part. That's max ready for saturday water bottles ready and get your your walking shoes ready. We'll actually everyone get your water ready..

"As i can see feasibly possible for a company to say like this is an event ticket fucking mr rhyme costs more than this you know. Don't even get me started. On that event it was seven ninety nine for that fucking event and then you get go fast for five bucks. They should salaries so funny. So so funny. The happened all right so last year. We had the habitats on day. One and team go rocket data to so now we kind of have. I don't know if the habitats are kind of roll over to the second day but we do know that all the pokemon available on day one will be available on date too but looking at these four jungle desert mountain ocean beach and cave any them kinda stand out. I liked jungle. 'cause i reminds me the tc g. by site. There's a big one. I need the xl candy. I have to after the one with dino what you gotta go for cave you have to. I'll be playing during the entire event. So don't matter i like google jungle packs had site there on them. This is cool. That's what it makes me feel. Okay you know junge aright. I feel jungle. It goes hand in hand. Hopefully they have flare on in there too. Yes yes okay all right. So continuing on saturday details. Now we're gonna see raids featuring hit on top cranny dose and dino plus galeria nita and glaring zigzagging wearing special costumes. All right so let. Let's talk about this really quick dino and raids so again it's going to be like gable. Everyone's gonna be fucking right rating. Dina we know that but think about all the people that had been breaking their ass for this glorious zeyun shiny this week like spending big money to do these one star raids and now it's going to be all over the place in fucking go fast. You know what i mean. It's not like with a costume. So even a more chase version of the fucking shiny. I i dig it. I love it. I think it's awesome. I think that to see what galeria opponent to look gonna. I know i know so..

"What he said anyway. Yeah they're the event sponsor. That's pretty cool. Will this impact ios users sort of. We'll get get to that in a bit so not that big a deal but first let let's start with the go fast basics and we already know two day event virtual saturday july seventeenth sunday. July eighteenth it runs from ten. Am to six pm so a shorter time duration than we saw last year. I don't think that's a big deal. Eight hours of still fucking long. Especially if you're going to be out there grinding stephanie. Enough to split the day up. You wanna play in the morning. You wanna play any afternoon play towards evening. You wanna play all day. It's you have those options. There's so much so much room for activities during during the eight hours. But let's talk about saturday details that are going to be available to everyone so regardless of whether or not you purchase the five dollar ticket which is available now so you can get that now in the in the store did you say now i said now dude i say now as you're listening to this you could go as you're listening to this. You can go yes the in game store and portrayed taha's the podcast go buy the ticket yet by we'll wait and full disclosure. We are going to get our tickets for free from niantic. Thanks much moving on habitats are coming back this year for different themes jungle which is going to have put him on. Like saif a-bomb brocchi desert mountain. Which is going to have scaramucci. Shield on hippopotamus and more ocean beach. Funky drew teeny swab. Lou aloma mola and the cave. A cave habitat rock and roller larry and stunned fisk and dino my opinion Missed opportunity for zubac. How'd you have fucking pokemon game with caves and not zoo bet or dig. Let's say and more and more zoo. Better be fucking spot. Zoo bat and dig on responding. Yeah ju onyx but fucking dino a featured pokemon now. They've learned their lesson especially with dino put dino in the kiara of event before remember for that event log remember so is wellness is in the key art for go fast. So dino is the new bill. That's what's going to happen you fuck it. Everyone's going to be going after the dino it's raids and all that shit people are gonna spend their money just like gable member. We're talking last week. Adventure rare pokemon just rotate values by d. I know right and then and then a new polka m- will take that position of the rare shit. You know what i mean like. It's so funny the rotation like seeing it in action and then whom he will be next. Go fast and yet again all right. We'll add what do you think about having a title sponsor. Does this kind of make it feel less punk rock to you at all like or is this This is a positive thing what he thought. It's a positive thing it means they. I mean obviously it means that they could reduce ticket so more people will be playing. That's just like straight up hands zak. Yeah the accessibility is a big deal. So you know five bucks is. I can't see you doing a the hardest not gonna lie. Yeah but like you can't do an event for less when you can have a three dollar fucking ticket. Price like five bucks is like all right. That's that's as low..

They were even selling her poster of her posing with it for thirty five bucks and it's not sold out the website had some glitches but it was not sold out.

A Culinary Tour Of Brexit
"Joined today by frank langfitt. Npr's lennon correspondent. Frank hi. hey it's great to be here. Cardiff great to have you so frank from what i understand. You are about to take us on a kind of culinary tour of brexit. Today's yes that's right so quick. Refresher on brexit cardiff. Uk voted to leave the you to escape red tape in brussels. So they'd be free to cut new free trade deals. This was like a number of years ago. Two thousand sixteen. The uk finally completely got out of the eu on new year's eve which means different things to different sectors here but today we're just going to focus on one of the hardest hit that's food as specifically we're look at wasters cheese and wine because we found his each item tells a different story about the real world consequences of brexit so far. So that's our plan. And here's the menu wine cheese or oysters cardiff if you want to start with. I don't know frank. I think i'm in the mood for oysters. Let's start there good choice. We're surrounded by water here in britain so the story of oysters is that when you suddenly face new regulations doing business is so much harder and no one is feeling this more than this. Fisherman that i met is his name. Is jonathan bailey very way this is late this is this is just rain rain water. I'll get some jonathan harvest oysters on a river in the southwest of england on the day that i met him. It was raining so we were bailing out his robot. Yeah i'm assuming Frank jonathan exports his own to europe. And that's why you're talking to him so a one eight tells how that's going for him now. That brexit is reality. Things are going really badly. So before brexit when the uk was in the eu there was seamless trade like between the states in the us and jonathan dredged up his oysters. They were shipped to europe and then they were cleaned which worked out just fine now. After brexit. Those british oysters are subject to eu rules about imports. Just like any other country outside the eu. so jonathan's wasters now have to be cleaned here on this side of the english channel. And i know this doesn't really sound like a big deal but if you're in the business it is and that's because it adds costs and it means there's less time to get those oysters on a european plates before they die. A bottom line are going to die in transit so this and other changes because of brexit have really hurt the fishing industry in fact shellfish and fish exports to the eu just in january. We're down more than eighty percent year-on-year now. The government likes to call this just teething problems in trade volumes overall are already rebounding. And that is. I gotta say a staggering dropped eighty percent plus. It is dead always tres and frank. I'm no expert on this. But i mean dead. Oysters are not good tasty oysters. No and you can't any money off them. Obviously so jonathan is one of like more than forty fishermen and women around here who are pretty much out of work. This season and i asked him when we're out on his boat like how he thinks it's going to impact them in the long run. Do you think that you'll keep fishing. Or i'm sixty six. I'm wondering whether this is the moment to say the. How would you feel about not fishing anymore. I would be very very very very upset. Okay so frank. Things clearly not looking good for the fishermen on the english coast. What's next on the menu where we're headed next in in our brexit tour so next off the whales for wine and then the northwest of england for cheese wine and cheese nice pairing classic traditional. Let's do that right after a quick break. This message comes from. Npr sponsor interactive brokers the professionals gateway to the world's markets. Their clients enjoy lowest cost access to stocks options futures and fixed income from a single integrated account. Learn more at i b. k. r. dot com. This message comes from npr sponsor. Microsoft teams helping priority. Bicycles transform. the way they work when the pandemic hit they started doing virtual visits on teams. Now people worldwide can come into their showroom more at microsoft dot com slash teams. Okay frank we're done with the delicious oyster chorus. So let's continue on with this brexit culinary tour and frank. I could really use a bevy. So what were you saying about. Wine is a really good example of a frankly how brexit can cost you in the checkout line. So let's head to wales and we're gonna meet daniel lambert who imports wine. So this is all little warehouse so daniel reports tens of thousands of cases of wine each year most of it of course from europe and for daniel. This used to be really easy. We used to just have to one very very simple simplistic but now because the uk's outside of the u. it's brexit. There's so much more. I have to send the order to the producer. The producer then produces pro forma invoice which they sent back to me on the pro forma invoice. They have two quite mild a number so hunting trip daniel down a bit because he actually went on. For more than a minute but describing. The avalanche of confusing forms now has to fill out. He said each separate set of forms cost seventy five bucks so scale of one to ten. How much are you enjoying this new system. Yeah it makes sense. I mean everybody hates paperwork. Super annoying. But frank did you ask him you know what about the real impact on his business. What he said is paperwork. Costs will be passed on to consumers but some small retailers won't be able to afford the extra paperwork cost ordering different kinds of wine so in the end that's actually going to mean less variety on the shelves.

A new way to invest that doesn't involve buying stocks hyped on Reddit
"So lately. All the buzz his been about well. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. Bitcoin recently fifty thousand dollars a bitcoin and people who've been buying the stocks that are being touted on read it and it was all that mess that went on with Game stop and other stocks. That went up like rockets and then like rockets can do crash back down to earth and my son is in this investing group at school. He's fifteen and they're investing not real money but they all have their stock portfolios and wanna read you to texts from him from this morning. They're really funny. Is said in the last nineteen minutes. My stock portfolio dropped by six sixty. Then he texts me eight minutes later and these eh. then it went up by eight hundred dollars. And i the other night. When he was trapped. In the car with me i started boring. I'm trying to talk about how my philosophies investing work very differently than matt worrying about day trading and options and all. That was going to happen up to the minute and if you thought a father could be more irrelevant to sun then i was that minute you you couldn't be no interest in anything i was saying because to him. This is sport and that's what investing has been of late call. Investing is really speculating. And that's not my thing. I mean i'm the dulles person alive and i invest in a dull way because the ideas i wanna make money over time and so. That's why i get excited about really accessible. Investing opportunities for small investors did allow you to build reasonable wealth over time instead of trying to get the quick score and my son's a sharp kid hill. Eventually get it and will not that. It matters what you're buying and selling minute by minute. And by the way he's asked me if he can have a real investing account. Will you know you'd have to have what's called a custodial said yeah yeah where where you were the pretend owner but i'm the one doing the investing and i don't know what to do you know. Give them a couple of hundred dollars and let him play. And maybe learn the value of term investing. But you know it fifteen. What is long term. That's like three days from now. It's hard to explain a concept where you build wealth over time well do you know goldman sachs is goldman sachs is for rich people like crista. People was massive amounts of money. Who work with a personal financial manager. Who handles their money for them. That's right krista. That's what you do with your millions. Yeah no no okay. So there are. There are very wealthy people. That's what they do and goldman sachs has been doing some stuff lately that doesn't fit at all their historical pedigree They're the ones that issue the apple card for people that have the apple credit card and they have Savings accounts and all that kind of thing with no minimums will now. They've launched some cold. Marcus invest which allows people to use goldman sachs incredible financial analysis investment analysis till build robo investing portfolios for you using very low cost funds. And this is something you would ask somebody. Ten years ago if goldman sachs would ever being looking to provide investments an investment advice to everyday ordinary. People they'd say you're crazy. That will never happen. Well they're not doing what fidelity investments does where a dollar is enough to open an account many cases schwab one hundred dollars. They're doing what vanguard. Does you have to have a thousand bucks to open an account but once you have that thousand you can get advice that is tailored to your personal financial goals and outlook. The money can be and a retirement account or an investment account use what are known is exchange traded funds. Etf's and typically for the advice and the investments you pay roughly a third of a percent per year for them to handle your money. So i guess ten thousand dollars be thirty five bucks a year. Is that right. I think that's about right. three dollars. Fifty cents on a thousand. I think that's right so this is an opportunity for you to do. Investing through the nation's big boys big money houses and their whole business plan is pretty similar to what you'd have if you were with Betterment or wealth front that really started this whole investing idea. And i'm sure neither of them are very happy the goldman sachs through. Marcus invest is playing in their ballpark.

At-Home COVID Tests Could Become the Norm for Americans
"From wondering. I'm david brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this thursday february eighteenth when it comes to cove it. Here's one thing we know for sure. Widespread testing is vital to slowing down the pandemic so vital in fact that report from the university of colorado released last november found that testing seventy five percent of the city's population. Every three days would reduce infections by eighty eight percent just from people knowing whether or not they're spreading the virus but we can't know better if we can't get tested and depending on a litany of factors like where you live and what time of year it is getting in person test can be at least an inconvenience if not almost impossible. Wait times at test. Sites can be hours long in some places. Some testing locations require a referral from a doctor and is getting a test really worth asking a potentially sick person to show up at a physical location especially if they have to use public transportation to get there. Well no it's not says the us government that's why the white house just signed contracts with six new companies that are producing at home test at home. Tests are already available to some degree in the us but president biden wants to make sure they're really available. Americans will have access to sixty million At home kobe tests by this summer if all goes to plan australian diagnostic company. Aloom just signed a multimillion dollar deal with the us to build a production center for at home tests in the us. There's is a rapid antigen tests that connects to wait for your smartphone. Of course it is twenty twenty one after all business insider detailed how it works. The user connects device to their phone and swabs. Their nose puts the swab into a container of fluid. Then drops the fluid with the sample on it onto the device connected to the phone and then they wait but not for long test can detect covert in a nasal sample and around fifteen minutes. The whole thing sounds like it should be expensive but the test is set to cost thirty dollars and be available over the counter at retail outlets like cvs early clinical studies though small indicate that looms test is ninety six percent accurate when compared to the standard pcr tests. Those pcr tests can take days to deliver results. Meanwhile the ad home test from abbott will be the cheapest option at twenty five bucks. But you'll need a prescription to get it. Which could slow distribution users. Take the test in front of a train teleworkers. Through a video app the test was found to be around ninety. Two percent accurate for positive cases and one hundred percent accurate for negative cases reports business insider even though accuracy rates can be high for at home tests. There's still a chance of user error to that end. Alums smartphone device. Notifies you if there's not enough of a mucus. Sampled attest and avid is hoping that its teleworkers can coach users through proper swabbing technique but there are tests on the market that even with the best intentions can't account for user error the at home test by pixel labcorp which runs for a hundred dollars unless covered by insurance gives. Test takers clear. Instructions on how to swab. But it can't be sure users are doing it right and that opens up the possibility of a false negative result which could spread the virus instead of preventing spread. Now take a guess as to which. Us mega corporation has just made an at home test available for its shoppers
Disney smashes streaming subscriber expectations
"We start off with disney delivering in its latest company smashing streaming expectations the stock higher in the after hours session. Let's get straight to julie abortion. Who is fresh off that disney call julia. Melissa earnings call underway right now. The stock up nearly three percent after the company exceeded expert expectations on the top line in reported a profit rather than the loss analysts anticipated. Now the two key areas in focus parks and streaming both outperformed expectations disney's streaming business outpaced projections going to ninety five million disney plus subscribers and one hundred and forty six million total direct. To consumer customer is now that includes hulu and espn plus that division grew revenue seventy three percent from the year earlier quarter especially pleased with the success of our correct. The consumer business and our recent strategic reorganization has enabled us to accelerate. The company. Said it was a dc first business model and further grow our streaming services disney plus has exceeded even our highest expectations. Meanwhile the parts visions revenue dropped less than anticipated down by fifty three percent the company announcing that covert has headed two point six billion dollar impact on the parks divisions operating income as a result of closures and reduced capacities. Where we've been able to reopen are with limited capacity guest have consistently demonstrated a willingness and a desire to visit which we believe is a testament to the fact that they feel confident. In the health and safety protocols we've put in place average daily attendance at walt disney world significantly from q for q one japex saying they're continuing to invest to build out different features of their parks and they said they are very pleased with the reservations and consumer interest in visiting parks. Melissa of course that's going to be in focus as they start to get to be able to increase their capacity in florida and are allowed to open up here in california. All right julia. Thank you julie. Borsen the latest on disney. Which is up three percent after hours. Dia dommie how do you like the stock. How do you like what they said on this. Call well kudos again. I mentioned the last night sort of took a pass on the kudos. I'll give it to her anyway. And tim who've been all over this and so listen. I'm not a huge fan of treadmills and this is going somewhere. Mel by the way suggest indulge me for a second but you get on a treadmill. You go eight miles an hour maybe walk. Maybe put down your honor for forty five minutes but when you get off your exactly where you started and i bring that up because listen. It's great that they keep adding people to disney plus i get it but as rich greenfield amongst. Many others pointed out our food down twenty-eight percent every year i'll tell you what that means because that's the game we play here but effectively a lot of ways that running in place. Now the naysayers will say. That's a bad thing. That's going to lead to decline in stock. And the optimists will say they're going to be able to monetize all those people there all by drew barrymore short with the delorean on it and those types of thing and maybe they'll go mr toad wild ride when the parks reopened. I'm not nearly as optimistic. So it's not a great ride valuations now or at levels where i don't think it necessarily should be okay and then it pick up on that point because i also read that tweet so this past quarter the arp average revenue per user was four dollars and three cents for disney plus and a year ago is five dollars and fifty six cents. Tim should we not care about this at this early stage of growth for disney for the streaming service. I don't think so. I mean i no. I don't think so. And i think you know guy may be like george jetson on the treadmill. I avoid treadmills i. I'd rather be out there and disney's running through the streets right now with with ninety five million and essentially when you add in hulu and espn plus. We heard those numbers. This strategic reorganization is part of the excitement. Here again. this division is up. Seventy three percent during a period when netflix is been in a sweet spot of engaged in couldn't be in a better position disney's outperform the stocks outperform disney from net flicks by almost forty percent since since august. But even over the last couple of years it's outperformed net flicks which we would all certainly agree is also making a move especially in terms of profitability. But again do we care about that. With netflix's should we care about that with disney when also they're showing that they can at least be profitable and their core business through very difficult times on the way out of kobe. So look i understand the profitability issues. At some point disney's got to create their own content. We know that's very expensive. But if you're asking me you know from from an investor's perspective. Am i happy with with the metrics that are driving the stock to move higher and thirty nine times five bucks. A share of two thousand and twenty two is is not expensive when you consider what is being paid for net flicks.
"five bucks" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"One listener guess that the football player current quarterback in the league Whose kids play with this other guy's kids Soccer. The clue that he just dropped says that no one likes Wentz. Someone thought that maybe was suggesting it's RG three. G three still is in the D C area. Yeah. Baltimore Played for The Washington football team. Mike Lombardi. You know, Mike, I just was reading his history. I know Mike well. Mike Lombardi was always critical of the Bears drafting Tre Biscuit, and if Travis Key would be ever been goes accurate, he was right. He was right. He's been a general manager in the ladies work for numerous teams. Raiders He's got it doesn't have a really strong connection with Bella Jack been with the Browns. Um Lombardi wrote, the Bears might be competing with themselves in this market. Just saying It wouldn't be the first time that Ryan, a desperate Ryan pace. Based on being scorned in the past. Is negotiating against himself. Am I right? All right, Listen, you go back to the 2017 draft, and some would say that he got Hoodwinked a little bit. Um I did read. If you read the article about how the Chiefs want about drafting Patrick Mahomes. I think that article. They did reference, though, that Cleveland had expressed interest despite having the number one overall selection, which they used on Miles Garrett. They also were interested in Travis Keone, and there is some theory out there some thoughts That they were going to circle back and take Mitch. But Then you would have just been left with Watson in my homes. Boy that woulda sucked when he was drafted somebody else we definitely would have taken. What's his name? Solomon Solomon Thomas, for sure. George in old town, and then we'll get to Super Bowl stuff. What's up, Georgie? Hey, I love it. I wanna try men on the opportunity. But what do you think of Of Kelsey and Uh, three killed $10.50. George is breaking up as it was, he added, Was he asking about first to score guys? That was here or anything. Tell me that before I put him on the air, so I do not know. But I would say Hollywood again. That's green something we can bounce off a duck Kazarian when he joins us in about a half hour, right or 20. I put I put down money on in, you probably should not listen to me. I put money down on Kelsey first to score and I think draft Kings had a booster for that. So I got even better odds than he was normally getting, And then I took a flyer today. Based on Who was it? Someone was on with Carmen. Maybe it was during cross talk. Maybe someone suggested the captain Jay Hood today, Um, about a B, I put five bucks down on a B 81 18 18 1. So $25 or $90. Whatever it is Theo If he's the first to score, why not? You know your Here's five bucks? Yeah. You know, Brady Brady was thrown him a lot before he got her. And remember, Brady always wanted him there. You never know. What are the odds of Mike Mike Evans to score first? I could let me pull that up here. That would be I don't know that you're gonna get great odds for that. Certainly not a beyond because they be has been been Has been dealing with an injury. I did take Mel. I took Mehlman's. I don't know if it was necessary Spice. I took the fat man touchdown to Will a fat man score a touchdown. I just I just put like five bucks on it. And the other washes the caches. I see the lines down to three, right? Yes. Chiefs minus three Chief Finest three. I'm telling you, there's not a ton of value left in it. I loved his breakdown of total sacks over four. Because again remember the chief? They're gonna throw it a lot. And there without their starting to tackles will ball come out quick, Probably so But if if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers going to stay in this game, it's going to be because defensively they find a way to put the pressure on the homes and keep him in check a little bit, telling you, Shack Shack Barrett and Jason Pierre Paul Get a sack. He's like, plus 1 20. Now I think it went down at over a half a sack. That's what some of my money would go. I put money on that as well. I've described Sprinkle the infield is you say that would you say yes. Regularly and field and listen, if if Miller would have paid you back for all of your fantasy football winning, you'd have more in your account. You could Do a little more sprinkling. You could do the sprinkler by the way after that. Yesterday, Miller claimed it in here it and we around with Carmen in your car. Today was great to talk to those guys. Um, but he got he got all the he got all the Winnings out. So he did get it out today, he texted. And of course, you know I'm the bad guy. Now I'm the bad guy Mission. I know that the commissioner. The commissioner got it out, he wrote on the top of it, he wrote. Did he write in the text? He wrote. Sylvie wants his money, You deadbeats. Just kidding. But not really. And I guess what some of the problem was is I was the on Lee guy. The only guy of the 10 other teams because it's a 12 Team league and Mellors, the one of the teams and I paid I was the only guy who paid. We found that out today talking with Carmen in the good kid right in. The good kid was trying to sell us that he didn't pay, but he wants to just take it out of him out of his winnings, Champ. Like I didn't listen. I didn't realize you played in a league where everything was on credit or nobody. Yeah. Hey, there an entry fee and Cove it. Come on. Now, just I mean, it's so easy to electronic Li Pay someone. There's also something called the U. S mail where you could send it. Check if you'd like. You want to do it the old school way. I mean, Come on now. I mean, so nobody was paid has paid except you know, and look again. If I don't want to run the league, I don't want to be the commissioner. So maybe I shouldn't be bitching. But a commissioner after a few people don't pay After the we're getting closer league sends out a friendly reminder email. It just says Hey, guys. Just to remind of league starts on Sunday. Please send money. Remember, this is a free gambling country so you could take your business elsewhere. You don't necessarily have to compete with these low down creepy guys. It's a fun leak, though. I mean, it sounds like it. You come in you give your money. No one gives their money And at the end of the year when you have a good year, you don't get paid. That sounds like a ball. Yeah. So all this is going to is right into my draftkings account. So, uh, yeah, That's all I wanted to know. That's it. Why? When I asked at the beginning of January, Was he like I'm getting to it this weekend. And then now we're the beginning of February, and we still haven't heard anything. I think if you have the time to support your cause here if you have the time to send out day two worth of Twitter Pictures of snow penises. You probably have enough time to actually. Go through the process and get all that. Yeah. Yeah, I think we all have more time than we really say. We do know that I've been so busy, all right, coming up Next. Some highlights from last night's big win at the United Center and Doug Kezirian will make you some money at three o'clock on the Super Bowl. We gotta break this thing down a little bit. Maura's well, it's all coming up. Listeningto Waddle in silver on ESPN $1, Chicago's home for sports Captain Jay Hood.

"You've seen all of the Bernie Sanders means from Inauguration Day. A famous photo now of the Vermont senator at the inauguration shows up seemingly everywhere these days, and it raises thousands for charity, too. Thanks to a local woman. Compost, Brian Calvert explains. The photo shows a bundled up former presidential candidate sporting a pair of knitted brown tan and white mittens. The picture is definitely made the rounds and it also motivated Toby King to get out her crow. Shea Needles mind blowing because I knew Burning was training because of that picture, and I already had a Bernie pattern in a burning doll. So I just went and got that and I modified in Super quick plan. She wanted to do her own version of the Bernie in the photo. By way of crew. Shay and from beginning to start didn't get up and it was seven hours. But that's on top of the hours and hours of actually designing that that I did like a year ago, when it was all said and done. The Redmond woman had a doll, a perfect likeness of the now infamous photo. She even re created a tiny version of those mittens, the mittens, mittens or not that hard, it's just the color changing a special stitch. Now what to do with a tiny crew shade. Bernie Sanders doll. Toby King immediately thought of doing something good with it. After all, Bernie himself was already cashing in on the popular pose much of sweatshirts. And donated two meals on wheels. Vermont and I said that that is perfect. That is what I want to do. She decided to sell it on eBay and give the proceeds to meals on Wheels America, she tells K II TV.

Do You Want to Write a Book?
"I everyone welcome to another episode of women worldwide. Thank you so much for showing up for tuning in for always sharing how you're doing what you're feeling this really help us to bring the gas that can inspire motivate in really offer you some help with your challenges. So let's get right to today's topic we're gonna take storytelling and the author to a whole new level. It's the legacy maker. So i have a legacy maker today. Who's helping to transform the publishing industry joining me. On the show with andrea albright l. andrea is a serial entrepreneur as she is publishing mogul. She's published twenty six bucks and she's helping other authors to find the same success. And i could say so much about andrea talk about her latest book which is visionary boss so andrea. I think it's time that you share your advice in your journey with us. Welcome welcome to women worldwide. Thank you so much gear drive for having me. I am thrilled to be here. I love what you're up to supporting women worldwide and. Thank you for having me. Your welcome will twenty. Six books is huge. So i've written a few books. I i know what. That's like an absolutely amazed and what you're doing. So maybe you can start off just by sharing a little bit about this past two serial entrepreneur punching absolutely while i started in corporate america right out of college and i had a nervous breakdown. I learned early on that making money without her business and meaning didn't fulfill me and went and started my own company. I became an entrepreneur. When i was twenty six years so i've been on this journey for a while. I decided i wanted to help people get and get fit and my mentor at the time said well you have to write a book in order to stand out as an authority and so i wrote my first book in two thousand six and i remember being so terrified that no one was going to read it. Only my mom was going to buy it. I could sound. But i said you know if i can help one percent then. It's worth it. So i released that book and it went on to create thousands of success stories around the world. People would write to me and say your book saved my life. I was going to kill myself. And then i found your book and now i love my body i love myself i love my else and so it was messages like that. That kept me going and everyone said fitness and weight loss is way too competitive. You can never compete. But this thing called. Youtube came along and i was like what's you so i was really part of that. Social media revolution back in two thousand six two thousand seven and because of social media. I was able to reach my audience. I learned internet marketing. And every time. I would publish a book for myself. I would use marketing to bring people to my website. I eventually got on the front page of google. Very important key. Words like weight loss. Secret and flash forward. I wrote over twenty five bucks and health and fitness. I reached over ten million views on youtube. One hundred thousand. Facebook fans and women's health and fitness magazine. Put me on the cover of their twenty first anniversary edition. So that's really what defined my authority as a thought leader in women's health. And i saw that. So many authors are struggling to get their audience to pay attention to their book. And that's when i became publisher i started beverly hills publishing so that i can help other authors to publish books in ninety days and reach their audience through marketing in ninety days. Tat's unbelievable so from somebody who works with traditional publishers. Absolutely unheard of now. Isn't it interesting that you had some push-back around you of the competition and you know you even yourself said a. maybe only. My mom will read my book now. Is that something. Do office come to you. And do you find those same topic. So i guess yours or challenges that they think they're going to face as absolutely being visionary is both a blessing and a curse because we can see the future. We can see a possibility for humanity. I believe that anyone who wants to write a book is truly coming from that place of being visionary and seeing something that they want to share with the world but then the curse is that we doubt ourselves. Who am i to bryn this vision on the planet who am i to tell society and culture that we can do better and so it comes with that inferiority complex

Should investors 'let it go'
"Is the time for investors to let it go sure. So you know before the charts. It's really all about who you are in the market and what your timeframe as there have been plenty of where disney as gapped up like this today up thirteen percent. It's q one beat in two thousand nineteen was about twelve percent. Move on vaccine day november ninth. We know at jumped about twelve. But what we do know is after big jumps like that. It's pretty Sideways fallow on a week over week basis. But let's look at some charts. The first is the breakout. Conventional kind of thing everyone agrees is well recognized stock that moves above a well-defined range with a gap. And you can see it. There is the definition of a breakout. Now second chart look where the stock stopped. It stopped to the penny at the internal trendline in effect for the past year. And a half. I mean literally stopped on that line in fact it peaked. Essentially around eleven o'clock and it spent the rest of the day going sideways so it was aggressively rated but didn't really progress now to more charts. Where are we in relation to the hundred and fifty day moving average. You could use the two hundred and you could use the fifty but if you were to look at this chart disney is trading some thirty nine percent above its hundred and fifty day. Now take a look at the next chart. This is going back for the past ten plus years and you can see here again. The relationship of price with average price over one hundred and fifty days. So in the history of the stock going back to the nineteen seventies it is only traded farther above the hundred and fifty million one other time and in principle that gets the timeframes. Long-term this is hugely bullish tactically. I think you fade the move. You take profits all right. It's a carter says let it go. We'll see in a bit car options action. So you've got the fundamental story. You got the technical take from the chart master. How would you trade disney here. Brian kelly what do you say. So i with carter on this when i really like his take on this because if you think about it. This is a long term fundamental. Play here because not only are they going to have more movie streaming online. But we know about disney's that they have tremendous leverage in their platform right so they can go to the parks. The parks are going to reopen their cruise. Ships are going to reopen. They're going to be able to take what they do on disney plus and bring it to all of those places but that does take a bit of time. And you priced in this surprise here and so where it's trading now and remember. The stock was seventy eight and a half or so back in april march april so it has had a tremendous run this year. It is priced in an awful lot of good news and so for me. I think you get a better entry on this. It doesn't mean that. I don't like disney. In fact i think it's going to be one of the better ones coming out of the pandemic but i think you get a better entry. I would wait either for today's gap to be filled or for the low of today to serve as your support and then wait for that breakout so you like it long term. But do you think that there could be a pullback shorter-term james mcdonald. I think part of the betting here is that is that this is a premium product. That people will pay for it in fact they. They announce a price hike of a dollar in the united states. Twenty nine percent in europe and a bet on the management team a ceo. Bob shape may be new to the role. He's not new to disney and he's still got executive chairman. Bob iger around. I in terms of this execution which is a dramatic change in how the business the structure and how the business considers an executes content. Well bob eiger remembers the old days when you had a lot of customers and you had a big brand. You had a lot of action and there is a firm back then called. Aol that got everybody's attention stock ran up on potential and we saw where that happened and i love carter's technical analysis and always spot on with his fundamental outlook. But my grandma told me use common sense you know right now. The pe ratio is at eighty seven There's more forward-looking upside for this netflix. Which masters this game. Netflix's out similar subscriber growth from the boom from cohen. And look what happened. That sub growth then cooled off for the next three months in this covert level. Growth rate is not usable for the long term with disney. Netflix shows that more content equals more subscribers. And that's a good thing but we're shifting attention away from the other weaknesses with this company. This is not a tech company The media only makes up forty percent of the total revenue parkson products. Make up twenty three percent and they're gonna take massive hits here with the new lockdowns over the holiday seasons. Let's use commonsense international segments twenty three and a half percent of the total revenue. It's going to be suffering. There's no fed overseas to save them. So let's use our common sense and stay away from disney here up one hundred seventy five bucks. No way no way no way. We can't worry about the long term. We've got to survive this recession. That's coming not
