Should I Use My Employer's Car Lease Benefit?
"Ethan is in Detroit High Ethan. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Doing great man how can we help? I word for an automotive maker manufacturer and engineer there. Can One of the company perks or benefits I guess. That they offer is a employee leaf option, right? So I I can get a vehicle. It's a one year lease. Yep a London Mile with insurance included YEP and repairs. Repairs Maintenance wrinkly Irish included everything's included. Yep and prior to. Working there I was paying around two hundred insurance. Idea of And I'm debating. So my current payment is around five fifty and actually brought my wife's and on the program recently. I'm debating even worth it to carry that. The Fowler. The lease on your employment on your employees deal. Yeah Okay. You're on and you're driving a nice car. Yeah it is. It's a truck. You you didn't take. You didn't take the cheaper chicken you got the big dog. Well Who is Ford. Our Jeanne outs. I. Chrysler Oh. Okay. All right. Well, I've looked at several of these Nissan is here in our neighborhood I've looked at the Ford one. I've looked at the GM. Went off the top of my head but most of these have nothing to do with a traditional card lease. It's an employee benefit program. You're basically got a car completely furnished miles everything insurance everything's built in at five fifty. You can't touch that truck for that. Truck goes down five, hundred, fifty dollars a month in value if you own it. And you got insurance and maintenance and gas and everything they include gas don't they some of them Goodson doesn't okay but it's got everything is maintenance included. All maintenance. So car breaks, you just take it in. Yeah. So this is not a this is an employee benefit. This not lie to Lee. Not, Your Evil Carly's program right that the other side of your company sales. But this is a great deal for you Ethan driving around. Yeah. It's a round. where? I, thought you were thought. Dadgum usually, it's not five fifty. It's usually like three hundred when I'm running into these things but you got your driving seventy thousand dollars truck. That's the thing. So good for you. You cannot touch that truck for that kind of money it's six grand a year and everything's G. if I worked there I would do that deal. This is not a finance plan. This is not a lease. This is a simple employee benefit and it is a killer employee benefit do it I guess we're kind of debating knows. So my wife is on it too. She has a wrangler. Yeah, and I'm wondering if it's worth to have two vehicles on that, we're trying to get something cheaper off. Let me try this again, you cannot operate a vehicle for three times what you're paying. Car Think. About. It add insurance. Maintenance depreciation. In value right now, put those three numbers in the calculator. Do the truck you're driving it takes fifteen, hundred, fourteen, hundred dollars a month to replace it. Okay because a stupid things going down in value more than you're paying a month, not counting the maintenance in the insurance. And the same for her now. The question is. Can you afford? Are you? Are you biting off too big a bite of the apple here is your household income, support these payments but the bottom line is if you if they support these payments and you were to buy this vehicle, you're going to have three ex in the vehicle what you're paying. Okay so it's a great deal. Do as many as you need to do as long as you can handle the cash flow out of their income, which is unbelievable. So would a situation like this? Dave, if you were to leave the company, you're just turning in the vehicle. Yeah you lost it. You lost your employee benefits. You lost it. Okay. And you and you do need to flip it every year because they're they're flipping these things out that you know it's a small percentage of their total production under the employees right but the Nissan plan is very similar. Right down here, the road from us the the Ford is very similar. I've seen those and BMW's and other one's got. They've got one that's pretty similar to the guys over in south, Carolina that listen to us over there at the beamer plant It's got the same option and driving a stink in beamer for a third a fourth of what it would cost you. Anyone else. To buy it outside of that employees listen everybody out there that's listening real quick. We're talking about an employee benefit program not nataly idolise yeah, I. Don't don't don't blow up men box with this It's an employee benefit plan, which is why people were able to do that. So it's part of their recruiting. It's part of the benefits that they're given to their team members. So just wanted to clarify that. Yeah. In his case on that layer worth hit the employee benefit. The value to him is around a thousand dollars a month because it'd be fifteen hundred to replace what he's doing for five hundred. Oh. Yeah. His truck payment. Yeah Without A. That's another twelve thousand dollars a year in income are effectively his benny package is adding. Another two thousand dollars a year to his value again, assuming you can support that level of truck with your income. We not ask Denka I got sidetracked on that. But as Chris said, it's very, very, very smart to say. out loud. We are not saying it's okay at least a car this is not leasing a carton. This renting from your employee employer has a benefit that's all as they call it a one year lease, but you can turn it anytime. You want I don't even hold you to that on this. Very, very good.
Women's March in Washington, D.C.
"Are pretty routine in Washington, we're used to them. But today we have two women's marches at opposite ends of the mall. And opposite ends of the spectrum. Let's talk about these two marches. The first one is called the march for all Women. This is going to take place in the steps of the U. S. Supreme Court later on today, and the same is it I'm with her, but the her in this case, Rick is not Hillary Clinton. You recall that you used that phrase in her 2016 campaign. The herd this time is Judge Amy Cockney Barrett as she's waiting out her nomination there to the highest court in the land. This has been organized by the conservative Independent Women's warm and some of the folks that are going to be along. You may notice. No, they are Fox News contributors. Sarah Carter.

Also, Heather Higgins, she's the CEO of the independent woman's voice. And also Tammy Blue. She may know her. She's a columnist. Actually, her work appears in The Washington Times. She's also talk radio host, she says. We should be able to all stand up and say that this accomplished Impressive woman at his Amy Cockney. Barrett deserves to be treated with respect that's coming from Tammy Bruce, she said. Yet the so called women's movement is standing by, while the mainstream media Questions. If Miss Barrett can be a Supreme Court justice and a good mother, in addition to vilifying her for her background and her faith, and that's Tammy Bruce talking, but At the opposite end of the mall. At the exact same time, there's going to be a another women's march. You recall the women's march of years ago where they do a million progressive ladies. Down on the mall that was in 2018. They're also planning an afternoon rally and march down the hall in that area. It's called the count on US events, and they're going to start at Freedom Plaza, not far from the White House and force trumps hotel down there, and after they get down down to the mall, they're going to have a mask. Texting effort about their cause. They expect to send out five million checks, and they also have 400 other marchers that are taking place in 50 other states. That's what they have to say. We need a huge and powerful mobilization to help energize the nation inspire millions to turn out to vote and to cap off Trump's presidency just the way it started with massive women led resistance. You got it. Two marches down there. One conservative one. Definitely progressive feminist. If you're curious about the conservative 1 march for all women simply go to march for all women dot com.

The candidate in Carrollton has been arrested and charged with voter fraud. The dent in county Sheriff's office, says ZOLL Mirza Mohammed is in custody. He's been charged with 109 felonies related to voter fraud. The investigation began September 23rd. The sheriff's office was notified by the Denton County Elections Office of possible fraudulent activity related to absentee ballot applications. Officials say the ballots have been requested to be sent to a post office box in Lewisville, Texas. It was supposed to belong to a nursing home facility.

What Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis means for the country
"Were always joined on Saturday morning by John Gizzi. He is the White House correspondent and chief political columnist of newsmax dot com and Newsmax TV, John. Good morning. Good morning, Rick. And what a night it wass. Well, obviously, we're following the latest developments on President Trump and his diagnosis with covert 19. What is the latest you're hearing on the president. The president is resting comfortably at the Walter Reed Hospital where yesterday he left the White House. And arrived at the hospital. I might and he left the White House in his usual business suit looking as he always does. Uh, this is not someone who has been felled by the virus. But simply has symptoms of the Corona virus, and he will rest there until doctors say he can come out. Which effectively scotches the debate. Scheduled for October. 15th. But it doesn't mean he's going to be in the hospital through the rest of the campaign, and we may see a newer and better Donald Trump emerged from Walter Reed. For now, all signs are that he's resting and that this is not anything that Americans should be nervous about. John. We know the Corona virus hits each individual differently, assuming the best for the president, where he quarantines for the 14 days and gets through this What is the impact on the campaign for the impact on the campaign is that right now there's an absentee candidate that the president cannot have is make America great again Rallies. He cannot debate He cannot issue pronouncements, although one as the impression after covering Donald Trump for the past four years that no hospital and no confinement Ooh! Ah hospital bed is going to keep him away from his tweeting. Uh, hey, certainly can campaign that way. And another thing. We have a long history in America of candidates who are hospitalized or injured who actually do well as their supporters carry on for them. When he made his first center base in 1948 Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson was laid up for a period with very brutal, Cole. His wife, Lady Bird and others served is very effective Speakers and he went on to win hard fought race. I know of a case of another candidate, Arch war who was elected governor of West Virginia after surviving a helicopter crash. So just because it candidate is hospitalized or unhealthy doesn't mean it's a foregone conclusion. He'll lose well, John. Obviously, we know the polarization across the country and the polarization in the media. And there will be a lot of talk about the 25th amendment, and I just wanted to get sort of a factual look. At the 25th amendment. So when people hear the pundits talking about it, they understand it. Alright, 25th amendment was passed. In the late 19 sixties. It is known as the Presidential Succession Amendment. Its functions are twofold. One Puts into law what had been an informal agreement between presidents and their vice presidents. For a long time before them. And that means when the president is incapacitated, say is when he goes under the knife. For surgery, He turns over the powers. Of his office to his number two who effectively becomes acting President Richard Nixon served his acting president after a heart attack. President Dwight Eisenhower, and after a mild stroke, the president suffered Similarly, when Lyndon Johnson had surgery, Hubert Humphrey was the acting president and Dido for George H. W. Bush. Under Ronald Reagan when he had cancer surgery in his second term. The other part of the amendment is that if the vice president succeeds to the presidency, he or she can then designate Vice president that the Senate must give its advice and consent to I might add that when a president is declared unable to continue in his office for health reasons, the 25th amendment can be invoked. By the vice president and his succession to the top job can be insured. Post debate. Polls are now being released Thursday morning, NBC News National Polling had Biden up 7.9 points over President Trump Real clear politics showing Biden with a 6.6 lead over Trump Fivethirtyeight national polling tracker gave Biden the 7.6 advantage. President didn't seem to gain any ground whatsoever in the debates. Possibly lost some ground. What's your analysis is, we move forward. First of all, I do believe that the polls accurately reflect The post debate. Momentum is with Joe Biden, and it has very little to do with the debate itself. But with the media's interpretation of how candidates Trump and Biden acquitted themselves on national television, and of course, the opinion off the punditocracy is almost unanimous. The president was ruled. He interrupted. He had no consistent thought. And Joe Biden was a gentleman. That is their opinion. Which is being repeated by a lot of people. There's two factors that leaves this reporter to say that these numbers might have flaws in them. The first is the hidden vote. There's a lot of people, certainly, as was the case in 2016, who just won't admit they're voting for Donald Trump. Obviously they do so when they're in the voting booth. The other is that Joe Biden right now, by being cool, is holding on and appearing a front runner. Did. Donald Trump loses the debate? It all depends on who you ask. Chuck Booth, commentator and conservative activists from Nevada said the president decided to use this format to speak directly. To his base of supporters and try and rally them to the polls. He compared the president's performance and his refusal to abide by Time outs to the scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when Butch is facing a much larger man and challenges him to a knife fight. And then says, but we have to go through the rules. The other man says there's no rules in a knife fight at which point which kicks him. And effectively weakens and subdues him. That's what the president's goal Wass with Joe Biden and to his base, he succeeded. So let's turn to the impact on the Senate and the Congress a lot of business to attend to, including the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We take pause for well wishes from Democrats. But as we can see in the Chuck Schumer tweet, it is a one sentence pause. And then we're back into politics. Here's what he said Friday night. We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for covert and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well, so that's the nicety. And here's the politics. It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with the hearing, and there was absolutely no good reason to do so. Well, I would just say that the distinguished minority leader of the Senate, Senator Schumer should look a little bit more. At the rules of the Senate as wrong is there is a quorum of senators in the committee. They could move along, particularly if chairman gavels in now what he's referring to are Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Both Judiciary Committee members and both presently incapacitated by the Corona virus. Both could easily recover in a short time. Remember the Judiciary Committee hearings on drugs, Parrots nomination don't begin until the 14th of Oct over. So any judgments about Senator Tillis or Senator Lee? Not being in the job in two weeks is a bit premature. That's the Supreme Court debate. Let's talk about the stimulus deal. New York Times Reporting. Speaker Pelosi said that the president's positive Corona virus test could change the dynamic and produce a Nagre mint on additional pandemic relief. But a compromise remains elusive. The gist of it from Speaker Pelosi is that now the Republicans will take Corona virus more seriously. Well, where do we

The Cultural and Ecological Implications of the Salep Orchid Trade
"Take those steps in and do something professionally with your career to actually. Contribute to the world of conservation, which brings us to the topic of Salad, and if anyone listening has heard of salad at all is probably as an ingredient, which is interesting. Because often times I hear people saying, Vanilla is the only culinary viable orchid on the planet, which is not true. So let's talk about sal up what is it? What is it used for, and where does it come from? When Salad Salad? Actually, it's not only an arcade ashamed Larkin it's like a big group of four kids. If you go through literature, you can find more than thirty five species. SLEAFORD Silane it's also depending on when a whether you are what exactly two different species or group species in Greece different one in Turkey or other countries. So when we talk about the If we see all the countries together faced in weekend, say that the most common once belonged to Janet like or he's like that filariasis also mccown. And infected, maybe it's off races when. So what's smoke one between solid core kids as their root system they most often have obeyed Bob's or? Huber's along one that look like little fingers. If. You see those on the rises. So this is actually a a salad porchet and being driven is coming through the dried and ground Cuba's that's what you get the. Fowler and the Susan Shelley Different. If you see, for example, in Greece, they like days they're just washed with water and dry. But if you go to Durkin also boy in either walking on me, it depends on very Jim. So that's what's giving you the final product of salad father. In what is sell generally used in? I mean, if someone's looking to see if it's an ingredient, what kind of food are they looking at generally or is it a lot just like the orchids that gives us it If you look at it as any greeted Bailey actually there are a lot of things you can find it most often is the traditional beverage. Back. The. Actually it's not always clear product that sometimes makes the cornstarch. Bob Is the one that you make the beverage hot beverage also techie you can find the acid thickening ingredient for they additional ice cream called on the. One that stick you on. an increase is also used or traditional ice cream, but this call, Kai Mikey by this mixed with mustard powder. The one that comes from the must be healthy. So this is more I don't mind. And less. But issue see that he starts Suzanne Masters you can not a fine sapping the most stains places even as an ingredient or bombs. So. Mrs I leave. I much. Boy. While an okay. So these are all terrestrial orchids for anyone that's not familiar with the Genera, and when you talk about harvesting routes, that immediately brings to mind issues that we have with harvesting plants here in North America for instance, panics and high dressed us. Those are two plants that are highly sought after further routes, but the very act of pulling up a plant. By. Its roots kills it right. So this is where you can kind of see the connection with conservation. If you're harvesting the roots of a plant, you're you're taking its life away from it right and so that's where you start to come into issues with biodiversity endangerment with a lot of these orchids correct yet because the production of Saleh Pro Juarez, the use of the entire. Plans. So basically in the overwhelming majority of aces harvesting salad means the destruction of the orchestras selves. Now to make one kilo solid requires a by two and a half thousand plans. To the half thousand individuals, Wallin kilo. Of. Salam powder ouch. Yeah. That's a lot of orchids. Now, if you think about one cup of sal but of the equivalent to Cappuccino or something but drinking salad beverage. you need five grams for that. So if you do the math works as Iran thirteen plans for a single cup of salad drink. Does a pretty expensive kind of process in terms of of orchids. and. There are certain people told you know taking one of the to chew birds and putting the other back but all this is all this is just talk really because the amount of work required harvesting these things it's very hard were, and that's one of the reasons why are studied we found a lot of people that actually stopped elected. Elected Saleh. But It's a bypass were talking about something between. Ten. In Turkey and the launch ed very variable. The amount of used something between twenty and AC tones in a single year. Yeah. And that I remember talk from Professor Cramps Zeke, he mentioned that every year and thirteen one, hundred, twenty, million arcades are being kids in order to produce missile of the year. So it's like a tremendous amount of individuals and as able say that it is like you're actually bringing up a whole mountain that say a huge number. Yeah and again, we wouldn't be talking about conservation here. If this was something that was produced agriculturally, right these are all being taken from the wild they're harvested and those numbers are mind blowing I had no idea what we were getting into when. We started talking about this just in terms of quantity and like you said, it's not just the fact that they're pulling these plants out of the ground and them for this it's your digging the whole time you're also disrupting habitats and that's something I never see talked about when it comes to harvesting foraging anything like that is the fact that if you're digging things up your
"fowler" Discussed on Big Brains
"Ah Pew Research Center Survey shows that a record number of voters say it quote unquote really matters who wins the White House. But who were the people casting the ballots? A big part of Anthony fires research is on voter participation, and so a big interest of mine is in who votes who doesn't vote what implications have for our election results in public policies and the people who vote are systematically unrepresentative of the people who are eligible to vote older richer wider people are much more likely to vote than the rest of the population and so that does mean that. The kind of voluntary voting that we have in American society does on average seemed to benefit the Republican party versus the Democratic Party. So if somehow, we could get everyone voting that probably would have partisan implications and knowing about those patterns and knowing you know having a sense of that is probably why a lot of Republicans tend to oppose any effort to expand the electric or make voting. Easier from pershing millions of voters from the roles to implementing strict voter ID laws to attempting to limit early voting to a history of voter intimidation to redrawing districts to benefit their party. Republicans do not have a track record of making voting easier. In fact, it's quite the opposite according to Alor. Especially when it comes to black and Latino voters, there is a lot of good evidence suggesting. That yes. Those inequalities in participation do have very important implications. It does it does matter who votes in who doesn't vote and things would be different if everybody voted and if everybody voted most likely, I think we have a lot of good research suggesting that that would in the short run benefit the Democratic Party again, presidential elections turn out only about sixty percent of the voting age population. And that's not a very easy problem to fix. You're not to get everybody voting just by sending everybody a mail ballot just by having early voting or weekend voting or a holiday or something like that. Those problems are much harder to solve the other part of it is that even when voting is very, very low cost, even we make it really easy. There are still plenty of people who. Don't find it worthwhile to it because what are the odds that my one vote is going to be pivotal in some large scale elections? The question is, what's pivotal means case? Pivotal. Would mean it's it's a little bit tricky to think about it but pivotal would literally mean in this case, I'm if I show up and vote for my preferred candidate might prefer candid it winds, and if I did show up and vote than the other candidate would win that would be a rationale for voting. That would be a very clear instrumental reason for voting in the chances. Of. That being the case of course, you never know whether that would be your vote would be pivotal but ex ante the chances of that we're going to be the cases some extremely low number. Okay and so I think I'm hearing you right but I will go back and just state it because having the voting expert kind of say is Kinda, clear that your vote doesn't matter which. I think is kind of where you're going on this is that accurate and if that's the case, then why does anybody votes? Yes, I mean it's true that at the individual level, your vote is not likely to matter that doesn't mean that either in the aggregate everyone's voting behavior matters a time right so there is this collective action problem where you know we as a group of. Like minded people who have shared interests would all be better off if everybody voted if we could all make sure we commit ourselves devoting. So how do we solve this problem? This year Fowler was part of a working group convened by the Brookings Institution and Harvard he and nearly thirty other researchers published a report recommending something that might seem a bit unusual making it illegal not to vote. We rotor port. That essentially advocates for compulsory voting United States we we argue that voting should be thought of as a civic duty should be an expectation of citizenship just like paying your taxes just like disposing of your trash properly, and one of the motivations for that is that the people who vote in our elections are so unrepresentative of the eligible population and we haven't found any good ways of correcting that problem other than something like a strong financial incentives and so our proposal is there should be an expert illegal expectation that you vote if you're eligible. And that if you don't vote should you should be fine I. We don't think that fine should be so costly that it's putting people into poverty but we think we think a small fine on the order of twenty dollars would be would be very good for both improving representation improving participation without overburdening citizens and other places otherwise it and other global democracies where you're seeing that happen with some degree of success there are there are there are. Plenty of other countries that have some kind of compulsory voting policy. One of the countries that does it well, Australia where they achieve more than ninety percent participation in virtually every federal and state election and they do it through a find just like I described a fine roughly on the order of twenty dollars and they've been doing it for a long time and I've done some research Australia and showing that when the influence I implemented this Alsi. Dramatically increase participations you'd expect and it did change electoral and policy outcomes you had working class voters who were previously underrepresented who now all of a sudden show up to vote they change they changed which kinds of candidates get elected in the change risk policies get it in total. There are twenty four countries around the world with some form of compulsory voting and while the laws aren't always strictly enforced research does show that they can dramatically impact turn out we've tried a lot of ways to. Improve access to elections improve participation, make things run better and I think compulsory voting would be one of the best things we could do to create that strong incentive. You know we we often don't have the resources to to make voting easy. Some peop-. Some people do have to wait two hours in line to vote and if voting was compulsory if you were going to be fine for not voting, then all of a sudden those. Two hours in line not only are they mad because they're not voting they're mad because they could get find as well. So I think you just get more public pressure..

Virginia Becomes First State to Try Covidwise Pandemic App From Apple, Google
"The first Bluetooth exposure notification APP has launched in Virginia and it's called covert. Wise. The APP uses Bluetooth chirps to detect if you've been in close contact with someone who has tested positive while it's very easy to use or to really be effective in needs widespread adoption. Jeffrey Fowler Tech Columnist at The Washington Post joins us for this useful APP with very little privacy risk. Thanks for joining US Jeffrey. Wanted to talk about this APP out of Virginia, it's called COVID. Wise. It's an exposure notification APP using Bluetooth on your phone. So you might have some other contact tracing APPs with regards to corona virus. One is a Little Different Your Bluetooth sends out pins basically, and if you've come into contact with somebody for more than fifteen minutes and you're within six feet distance, the APP might tell you you've been exposed then you can go get a test all that. Usually we bring you on on the PODCAST Jeff, we're talking about privacy with apps and things like that, and in this case you've kind. Of, run. This thing through many tests and you've kind of come to the conclusion that your privacy really is an at risk and it would actually be a benefit if people were a lot of people downloaded this thing so we can try to keep this thing under control. So Jeff, tell us a little bit about covert wise and the tests you ran through it and what your conclusions were. Nobody was more surprised than me. The big problems that a lot of these APPs and the idea of using our phones to help track exposure to the coronavirus has had is that people frankly just don't trust tech companies and they just don't trust the government and I can't blame you companies have done very little to earn that trust and Edward Snowden taught us all that the government really can't be trusted either. But that said when Google and apple this. Spring got together and said, Hey, they thought that they had figured out a way to make our phones useful for figuring out if we were exposed to some of krona virus I was intrigued because they said they were going to build it from the ground up with privacy in mind. So we finally got the first of these in the US in the state of Virginia Colbert wise and it came out earlier in August and it was there I was like. We gotTA test. We got to see if they really live up to the promises and from everything we've been able to tell so far from our testing I've had thirty five colleagues at the post to live in Virginia and they're all testing for me. We learn two things. First thing we learned is that that doesn't seem to be really much of a privacy risk here these APPs Bluetooth to communicate to phones nearby they don't collect your location they don't. Send information about where you've been a her you've been in contact with to the government. It's actually a pretty clever system looked under the hood as well. Just just to double check they weren't sending out more information than than they claim and they work. That was the first thing. The second thing we learned is we still don't know actually this idea is going to work very well, those thirty five Washington Post colleagues who were testing them none of them got. -cation from this APP over a ten day period. Now, that could be for many reasons. It could be like they were just being really good at social distancing. It means that not many people around them. We're using it or it could mean that there's some problems with the idea that the phones can do this. But only way we're going to really figure that out is if a lot more people try it and that's one of the interesting parts experts estimate that up to sixty percent of the population needs to be using these exposure apps for them to. Be. Effective. So in Virginia that means they need about five million people to download it. But in its first weeks, covert wise got three hundred and eighty thousand downloads so very far short of that number needed. But there's other things that are kind of become a problem with this is in Virginia just by itself, but there's no big national system. So say you travel between states just whatever you come into contact with somebody else maybe using a different APP it's not this cold wise one. You know it's not all going to work. So seamlessly America's APP expeditionary. Strategy suffers from. Some of the same problems as the rest of our coronavirus strategy and that it's very local based very steep based. So as it set up right now in the United States, every state health department would have to make their own version of one of these APPs fads expressed any interest even though in other countries, it is kind of national government that's been working on these kinds of APPs. The good news is that about twenty states? Now have said that they're working on these kinds of Virginia three more joint it. So we already four out there in the wild and has been announced and effort that would make these absolute communicate with each other a little bit so that you could cross state borders with it. So that's a work in progress but not there yet,
Governor Drops Lawsuit Against Atlanta Mayor Over Masks, But Fight May Not Be Over
"The state's lawsuit challenging a facemask mandate imposed by the mayor of Atlanta. Stephen Fowler with Georgia Public Broadcasting reports. The Republican governor says he remains opposed to the order from the city's Democratic mayor. Atlanta's one of several local governments that enacted a mask mandate even as governor Brian Kemp says they weren't allowed to. So he sued the city, which also shuttered businesses and a voluntary rollback of reopening plans. But now, with negotiations breaking down Temple issue, a new executive order that could stop governments from enforcing mass requirements on private property that Stephen Fowler
David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

"Getting in that riot the thing that more than anything else or to really fascinates me is finding that sweet spot of extreme intensity but also relaxation right. You're not burning unnecessary energy that to me. That's you know being in the zone means different things in different sports or different walks of life that just fascinates me threads that thin space. Did I think that's right? I mean I think it's it. It's that thin space. Where you're you're still there but you're just in a whole you're just sort of floating put its floating and so just to wrap up a couple of one really important thing is probably the most important thing we've talked about is that we share yet another thing in common and this is so. I am so fucking proud of myself right now because as I was looking up your life and I knew most of it but looking at your wikipedia and I says here he lived in Colorado Springs graduated from Palmer High School so I click on in palm high school just so you all know Palmer. Highschool and Wikipedia has their own wikipedia page. And I'm like do you think. Do you think I get a mention? And so I click on Palmer high school and this is notable alumni or whatever in alphabetical versus Lance Armstrong. And then it says Elvira and this is Chris Fowler and so on their wikipedia but we went to the same high school. When I went up there to the springs to my first training camp at the many classrooms. You actually sit in like I know. I know your name on the wall of fame there but if you actually sit in classrooms there always got just a very few very few but very few and I didn't but I still. I'm still on their Kapiti page. But in parentheses it says graduated elsewhere. But I made in if I'm on the wall I didn't know him on the wall if I'm on the wall recall of course you're in the world and there's a lot of a lot of how it's actually because they were you know. They obviously were in the springs for the Training Center. Might made it. Cata Cup of coffee at the Palmer. High School go terrors viral. Mister dark many commodity. We everybody down to hurry. I you have a more prominent alumni mass so I started going. You know how this shit works. You know you get started going down the rabbit hole. Where's ELVIRA now looking up? Elvira like if you go to her Kapadia page you got too much time on your quarantine. This is this is what you do. You look you you look up you learn and you look at all the pictures of Elvira because the picture on her pedia pager like Holy Shit like she looks fucking amazing like you so then you start going like googling images of Elvira today and she's I read somewhere. She has an autobiography. What this is serious about this? I chant comment on viral online. So You keep going. Well I'm telling you and I'm telling everybody listening or watching so. She's got an autobiography coming out October of this year. Twenty twenty hopefully that stays on track and the other thing that I did not know about hers at some point early in her life. She was burned. Two thirds of her body is completely covered in burns and scars so the whole she said that in quote. Elvira said that everything you saw Elvira. I mean she had this kind of costume on but beautiful woman you tell she was beautiful but all you everything that was scarred was covered and so she she knows yet the best to see was shown or something like that like it. I look forward to having you. Haven't her on. I don't know that I'd I'd have to overcome well and some of the photos you can kinda but it you know. I just I love those things. It's like Get both of us on Palmer. Terror reunion show or something you. You'll know this he he. He was an all state Basque. He's still he's still in the NBA. He's with the clippers There's a lot of there's astronauts and stuff like that there it goes back. I don't know the wall of fame not Google media page for Palmer in a while. So no but he went to. I think he went to Boston College and he was drafted by he's in the NBA. I should know up. My brain is turned off right now. We've come to you should do this. I know I should. What would you be covering? I could cheat on this phone but I'm not going to do that. So what would you be covering right now? I'd be off. Actually it'd be getting ready for for pretend this season but I missed a couple of tennis tournaments. That were obviously canceled. So this is. This'll be my down time. Anyway Reggie Jackson Reggie Graduated Palmer High School two thousand in by the way. I saw it last night. I thought Holy Fuck Chris Fowler Elvira Lance Armstrong and Reggie Jackson went to Palmer and then I was like. Oh it's a different Reggie Jackson as drafted in twenty hundred still bass player in that band now in the back. Good I mean. Let's hope let's hope. Elvira singing man. Thanks for doing this on on a whim. It's fun to reconnect is good. It's it's good to connect. I enjoy what you're doing here. Thank you gotta give me some tips. I'm going to try to launch a podcast down the line like not talking really about sports but some of the different things we on here. So maybe appreciate what you're doing.

"A big number. It's a it's a hell of a lot bigger than you got when you were working at. Its Scholastic Sports America covering PUNK ASS. Triathlete kids in Plano Texas with single MOMS and you must have been thinking. I thought I was ruining cash. Then I think it was fifty or something like that which I out of school It was. I always knew there's I'm not gonNA get up and I always knew I met a lot of athletes and their parents always circle back to through the ability to kind of sense that there's something special by your mom about your story and I always that's why we stay close. That's what we stayed in touch connected. That's why I've I've followed everything you've done because I I sense it back then. The drive that you had the focus that you had a you know was was something that was cool to see. It wasn't just you. There were others like that but that that show which people told me do not take that show. You're stupid career move. I always use that when I talked to kids. Listen to yourself man. Let's see your heart and guy you can relate to this. Don't listen to the static what you're supposed to do what the logical step is. 'cause is you gotta get here. You gotta go all these now. It doesn't work that way careers flow the way life flows man in your face with forks in the road and Scholastic Sports America and go into ESPN to do that show which everybody advised me against doing was the decision for my professional career and put me on that path like you and learn how to write and do all these skills serve you well later even those high schools or show and I was wearing dress like this that nobody really watched. But it's amazing. How many people actually remember that show? Because it wasn't like he had huge ratings back in the eighties. But but you know that those kind of choices that they define everything about what your wife and what you really like Matthew that show for the younger audiences going. What the hell are they talking about just you you can just go on. Youtube type in Scholastic Sports America and the whole the a lot of them and so it starts with this sort of the retro logo like the race track ESPN logo. I mean it's just Ma'am and that was the very first profile morning. Yep a bunch of Olympic sports athlete. Jeff Janet Evans Rates Swimmer Made. It was so cool to get a glimpse at those athletes and then be able to follow their careers and I wouldn't trade that for anything it just. It's like the road less traveled. There's really a lot see that it's I know it feels like I saw some clips the other day and I was just like. Oh my God I'm trying to make a few bucks out for a male that wouldn't run or something if our member and you're trying to make a few bucks a triathlon. A place high enough to like keep the car. Running stories struck me though and again your mom story struck me and it was good because she was single mom and working and and immense. She didn't have to if I needed a haircut or to put gas in the car or dive dinner. She didn't have to worry about that so they it was just enough. Yeah do we have to talk about these things? But that's pretty good memory out from remember years ago I remember. I was offered getting Plano to have you know and then and then I upgraded to the IRA Z. That was quite upgrade after you start making some more like some cycling cash that was that was vanilla. Ice lived the town over. He went to Austin like the fast forward. Ssa fast forward about. I don't know maybe like six seven years. Now you're down in Austin I think about this. We have palm trees here a flatbed truck pulling up to your house with like thirty palm trees to put on the ground big Holy Shit. Yeah this guy went from like trying to put gas in the car to bring an end like landscaping that you'd see it like the Geo multiple sports cars. Hey I like I like Ponte's palm trees. Speaking of you were talking about going to school so I don't know if I mentioned this or not. So my oldest daughter so the twins so Isabelle's going to Tcu and grace's going and University of Colorado your Alma Mater. Yup She's got a smart one of the family she she will. Anna went to see you. So Anna's Anna's varietal. So she's she's following her idol there. She got into the lead school there. So she's she's going to be in on I. I have this love hate relationship with boulder. I make fun of it all the time I like. I like being. There are like the town. I I love the fact grace's going there and I can go visit there by the way I love the fact that Isabelle's going to Fort Worth and I can skip Dallas and just go to Fort Worth. It's a better part of the METROPLEX place in your heart. Boulder Your Red Zinger Man. My whole passion for cycling was stoked when I was in boulder and the Red Zinger and then a classic early bike. This amazing scene there the mortgage Bismarck. That was the circuit race outside of town. Now all track homes and mcmansions and fucked up. But now I but it's it's it's part of the skit. It's part of the stick. I should say it's just it's a character. Okay he's all these guys and gals these people in Boulder their you know their endurance people and you know every one of them is percents. Sure they're going to win the Olympics at some endurance sport and they're like the flat irons. Did I mean it's just it's this whole thing and it's not true but I have fun with it and like I said I love going there. I Love Psych. She's going so I can go visit and I don't know it's just it's just a whole thing speaking of crazy adventures. Are you still doing because there for I mean I forget the don't forget but now the breathing thing but for a minute there there was the climbing with the ice picks and all this other zoos still thing climbing I was like yeah? Let's walk up a mountain but this was like no. You're like no. I never really find ice falls with a pick. I I can use an icebox and GRANDPA things so well. Yeah those crampons. But I'm not like a rock climber ice climber thing I'm not built for that man you I I do love mountaineering. I feel like you know. Nature is sort of my temple and in the mountains of always spoken to me I. I was a kid that had posters on the wall of Everest. The Matterhorn Kilimanjaro. Climb some of those guys who climbed Everest. I've been to the base camp mountains around Everest but I I've no intersection climbing Everest because it said Shit show show us everything about the experience but yeah for me mountains or why come alive and had a place in ten thousand feet in Colorado for a long time and so yeah. I mean going back to Nepal before I'm too old to go is a life quest. Do that soon. I mean that that was a life changing experience being in the Malayan climbed in the Andes and the Alps. And that's where I feel like you know. I think we your most a lot like I'm telling you you feel most alive when you're giving everything you've got right mentally and physically i. That's what I know. What Athletes Miss About their sport? I'm sure that resonates with you but in my own little world you know diminished expectations of what what giving everything I got means no pushing. And and and focusing only on the next step at a someone that tries to embrace mindfulness and being presence and cutting out the static and being in the here and now man what brings you to that more than complete physical and mental exertion and the closest I get elites in anything is. I've written bikes you. I know what elite it feels like that and I've also hiked with you so I know that freakiness when self amount but for me like doing what I can do. The limitations of climbed over twenty thousand quite a few times inside. I know what that feels like. That is feeling alive and like these kind of times man that just that would be awesome to get back to that experience That's not I don't consider that extreme crazy it's just kinda what turns me on saw. Alex Hanalei you're not GonNa see me trying to like three climb fell cap. That's no that's not my world I mostly is kind of walking or scrambling big mountains but not like hanging on a rock. While that that Kinda thing is that's a whole nother level. He's one of the most remarkable humans ever net. That's a whole nother realm. I had him on the show. Actually probably it's been a couple of years but he mason. Yeah I watch output but I mean pre solo is incredible I can't imagine you know everybody gets so the wound up about three thousand feet that that that is true but anything you know. Pass what he told me. I think past thirty five or forty feet. You're dead anyways and so it's just amazing to me is up people who can turn off that. Parts of their brain that are fundamental to us. He just shuts down the part of his brain. That feels fear. Well he he's he's equipped for whatever re I don't know what all happened. But he's his brain is wired that way. That's that's back. They show that very clearly in the documentary that this is not a normal person like we don't by the way I hate heights so I I'm sitting on a chair basically scared so no I I was like I was sitting there like it was causing me. Physical Pain Watch him. I know it was like you know you know. He lives and the whole time. You're like in my palms twenty. People were having literally one of the premier's somebody heart attack. That's a foul. Yeah so I mean this is how this guy had the they'd stopped it and had to call nine anyhow to then go interview him at his house like you watch the movie and you see moving in this van. He's now living in the suburban home in Las Vegas. It was just before Christmas. The Christmas tree the Garland all the shit like cute. Y I did in the movie. It was his girlfriend. I'm just like dude. This is not the van life anymore. Bro This is a Christmas cards. You have to turn off. Ardy your brain when you're trying to dig as deep as you possibly can dig it in. Its alcohols two hours or something. Were you able to shut off part of your brain? That saying don't do this because that's what fascinates me about athletics. Getting in that riot the thing that more than anything else or to really fascinates me is finding that sweet spot of extreme intensity but also relaxation.
"fowler" Discussed on The Forward with Lance Armstrong
"A huge momber for those of us. That weren't depends on probably watch some vintage tennis at that point in the summer. But I don't know it's not. It's not doing it for me. I probably shouldn't say that 'cause ESPN would like everyone to watch these classic names. But I just I can't sit around here watch old sports and feel like that's a subsidy it's not live. That's not current so just checking texting Petar Fowler. Doesn't give a shit about one thousand three Kentucky Derby thanks it's lame exclamation Jim Petar. Ceo OF ESPN. But we are actually. We are doing a little bit of that with cycling. Just re bundling some old stuff. It's just kind of these iconic moments. I think that's cool. I I just I am outcome to that when the appetite really gets wrapped up for it. I just at people to act like. That's close to write watching new Champions League games for me or watching March madness or why the NBA. Which I love. That's just not. It's not a substitute man. It's okay to pass the time now. It's better than watching a lot of other stuff. It's out there but y you know you've got started it we we. Are this stop. I can't even understand how I stopped speaking to stop. I stopped watching like I got three up. I'm like what the fuck okay all. These people are fucking weird. I'm I'm done. And then then the Prescott. Then they started asking the president just like no this is anyways but it just shows you what sports house sports occupy our households our minds our time. Yes so this this talk that and of course you know here being here in Austin and the University of Texas football and being as close as I am To Sam alligator and that whole crew. It's just the idea that we're not gonNA have. I mean by the way is September is not that I mean well already spring games. You know the Spring Spring Practices Spring Games been canceled but the idea that that there will not be a regular college football season. I think people are GonNa flip the fuck out. That's one way to put it. I wouldn't argue with that. It's so important at such a part of the fabric. I mean. Football is sort of the national sport whether it's NFL college and the idea that this might interrupt that when it's still months out does freak people out I think but it's so problematic to consider at this moment. Starting the season on time for so many reasons I don't know about the I have no special insight but in college. The conversations have taken place in from being privy to a little bit of that and just some educated speculation. My best guess is that college football will happen but not in the fall. It'll happen in the spring because they'll be too concerned about a getting things up and running in August and September and then the potential reoccurrence of the virus. When the weather turns cold at the end of the season. You could start a season and then had this cloud hanging over. What if we get a reoccurrence and get things down in certain parts of the country? I think they feel better about hitting the pause button. Getting some testing in twice seem with the climate is and then starting things up at this just a guess but there are conversations going on about this late. February March April may obviously the be all kind of modification should be a slightly shortened season could be the full season would be different as they can get that regular season in get that. Tv Revenue and get a playoff racket. Happening they can probably stay. Afloat need the cash from football. Tv rights and if you cancel the season there's no football the academic twenty twenty one year. That's a disaster on the other hand man. You see coaches sand stuff that I'm not GONNA NAME NAMES. I don't have to but they're out there saying things that strike me as being tone deaf. You cannot take lightly the safety of college at. Oh yes by the way. You're unpaid workforce. Oh No we're going to get I would actually. I know I wanna get you cannot say. Hey it's they're young and strong poem back out there. They could beat this virus. This is America Nano Bro. That's that's not the way it works. No perspective is essential here and keeping priorities in order are essential which is why. I think they will not force the issue. Yup Who knows man? Some of the country will have flattened out much much better in August but other places might not be. I think they feel like that. There's a chance that having a more level playing field in terms of the conditions nationally if they just push it too early in twenty twenty one I mean. These are unprecedented times. I mean you've just even hearing you talk about that I mean that's just so I mean it is what it is but it's odd I mean. Even in our sport of cycling there was talk which now confirmed is just not going to happen. There was talk since the tour of Italy has postponed slash cancel. Everything moved off. There was talk of of creating a three week hybrid event where you combine the tour of Italy. The France and the tour of Spain later in the year. I thought that was an amazing idea. Of course all the stakeholders all the organizers and promoters and sponsors couldn't get it to get that's not gonNA happen but the you know that's the kind of thing and you're like okay. Well we can't have it'd be like Wimbledon's not gonNA happen. Let's just play pickle ball. Let's get drunk pickle. You can't think that ideally you. They get outside the box that way. Yeah is it. Is it perfect. No but but it could have given perhaps a substitute. I mean. You're going to have to think you wouldn't put football back on the field. They'RE GONNA have to be modifications. I mean you're talking about. Let's say you pray. Spring football season the draft in their. Nfl's gotTa move the draft back. Would guys like Trevor Lawrence or guys who are going to be very high graphics? Would they play a spring season running right up into? Nfl can't we? You know that those are individuals questions at the answered. You've gotta expect there's going to be modifications that can be business as usual just sliding things back a few months. And then there's a turnaround. What's the minimum amount of time to get recovered and ready for the next season in all twenty one? So there's so much that has to be sorted out but expected anything is going to be business as usual. This feels unrealistic. Don't start going all boasts on me this. You know skipping the season to preserve your staying doing that. I'm just saying that that's that's a personal. There's a lot of what is I'm just saying there's a lot of. I've never been in that position. There's a lot on the line for them. So that's not. Yeah let's let's just be 'cause I know you touched on the NFL. I want to get to that and just say there was a report a few days ago about something you might be involved in But let's just spend just a second on stop. Don't don't you know what I'm talking about but this I know gender whatever you want but or you can just confirm it. That'd be great to will break it open right here but let's get first before we get to that this idea of. I'm very passionate about this. This this idea of of the NC Double A. Student Athlete Right. And and the the you know take a program like the University of Texas or nervous Alabama or USC or or it doesn't matter where it is I mean generating literally billions of dollars for these institutions Real I mean obviously you know. They experienced those games the highs the lows etc the teamwork the camaraderie the education. But I think it's important. We have to find a solution. I'm not saying we pay these kids right but I think there has to be. I just don't think it's fair. I think they ride the backs of these kids too hard and I just don't think it's fair. I think there has to be. I'm not saying you know. Let's all negotiate and pay them. You know whatever but there's gotta be something whether it's a trust something in place if they complete for I don't know it just feels it feels like it can't it can't go on like this. I agree it's complicated. It's problematic every time you come up with solution. There's other problems that stemmed from that that you gotta think about an advanced. I've heard some good ideas Guy Called Yogi. Roth works for the PAC. Twelve network is a friend of mine said something months ago that I thought made sense and now it really comes into play with the Times. We're in right now because I I. You can't just throw cash. It's not a good idea to throw cash at a college kid and expect that you're gonNA use at the best possible way. You can use that to secure your future. Probably not. I didn't when I was in college. It a few bucks you spent but you know maybe stipends if you get your degree you it's a sliding scale the closer you get to your degree the more you can get at how. `Bout Free Healthcare for life provided by the university. Some pool of cash. You Played College football. I tend to think of in terms of football which is the most punishing my opinion but it could extend to other college athletes as well. And maybe out of fairness should you if you give your body and you get a scholarship you giving your body to the cause and you've suffered the effects of that hip athletic career. Well after maybe this free healthcare for life. You should not have to get the best healthcare while your student athlete. You're a player. You get the best healthcare because we want you back on the field right once. You're out of the program. Would you gotta fend for yourself right at navy free healthcare for life to deal with all the things that that's an idea that's a serious benefit to that? Of course. Yeah more sensitive. Here's a here's five hundred bucks a week for you. Stipends make sense. I don't I think that we D- paying players though for image weakness which has been the this is on the forefront of this conversation and lots of states have an active real. I mean if you think about that. Thirty seconds knowing the Landscape College sports knowing the way that people will benefit exploit. The rules are just flat out. Brigham it's fraught with problems man. I mean you're GonNa say you're going to throw this up into the free market you're involved in that world. Let's say there's a free market system and now players can make money on their name and likeness and it becomes an issue in recruiting or some company in Birmingham says. Hey Man right for US market value for your name and light you see if you sign with Alabama one hundred grand in your pocket. I'm paying for your name and likeness now. This guy was playing. Safety was never gonna be never going to be actually worth that. But who's to say you don't have some kind of regulation in some way to control the market. You can't just have wild west but here comes some coming baton rouge. You're worth one hundred and twenty two US so now it's a bidding war right you your local hire shop somebody in Austin such somebody with a massive corporation in Austin decided. You know what I'm for me. The image and likeness rights to all these players worth this much. Pay This much for it and it's just like you can't have a wild west like I don't think that's that is the wild rice. I I. Yeah I I love these other ideas that are just a little more.
"fowler" Discussed on The Forward with Lance Armstrong
"All RIGHT EVERYBODY. Welcome back to the forward podcast. My guest this week is Chris Fowler. This is a guy that I first met. Oh Man I think about this. I met Fowler in night. Probably nineteen eighty seven. So it's been a long time The host of show on ESPN ESPN was just a small we think of ESPN NOW. Like you know the major network which it is of course this back in the day. This was a very small cable channel. he was on a show called. Scholastic Sports America that featured a bunch of up and coming young athletes I was on there. Janet Evans was on their Emmett Smith Alonzo Mourning etc etc. So valor would travel the country in an interview and profile these young athletes and I met him way back in the day and of course his career Went to be Are the places that it is today which is kind of legendary and we've maintained this relationship. He gamed most of the tours that I one is a great friend. Great Mentor Through it all quite frankly and so Great to catch up with him in quarantine. This is one we had to do. via zoom which is sort of non traditional for us. But get into a lot of things that frank too. I didn't think he would. WanNa go there on How we compensate college student athletes You know with the dog the talk of of him and curb street Moving over and also calling the Monday night football game which I think is huge news that just the speculation around that just came out. He answers all these questions and so also gets into some of his stuff that he's been working on. I didn't know that he was Had jumped into Wim. Hof BREATHING TECHNIQUES UP TO THREE MINUTE. Breath hold talks about that and what that does to the body and the mind Fascinating conversation so I really appreciate Chris. Coming on Before we get into it just just a big shout out to everybody pitching in here. Every week I talk about doctors nurses and researchers but when you think about it when I think about this you know it's you know it was out On a jog this morning and the guys were coming through the neighborhood picking up the trash. You know that that's not that's always a messy job at a time like this semester. The people stock on the grocery shelves The people driving public buses public transportation. These are all things that we take for granted time like this. Nobody's you shouldn't take that for granted so big shout out to them. I know when I saw the boys when I was out My job this Mornin I just said Hey guys. Thanks for the work. You're doing it's a you know it's not anything that again. I think we take it for granted.

Elvira So enjoy and say. Hey.
"fowler" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Right Jeremy Fowler. Join US here. In just a second on the shell. Pennzoil performance line lebatardshow. Internet connection is down once again so none of us have froze Billy is as relaxed as ever. Chris's just got a smile on his face because he always had a smile on his face. Roy is miserable because he's always miserable and I don't know what he's doing to that but he's the best looking damn guy on this show. That's for sure anyway. Let's bring on. Let's bring on Jerry Fowler to join US air. Espn senior writer covering the steelers and Moore wrote an instant interesting piece yesterday. I thank you for joining us. Jeremy Teams are unable to oversee physicals. Due to the corona virus outbreak they have added provisions player contract stating that failed. Physicals will result it fortified signing bonus. Money League sources have told Jeremy. Espn how do you think the players react to this? Thanks for having me It's a point of contention already among some player agents some teams because you know they want some sort of standard language here that that Says that look for the most part? They're going to be fine if they agree to terms on a contract that they should be paid out that contract unless there's a crazy circumstance so the issue they have is if you agree to terms on a deal now and then you can't take a physical per se three months because of this corona virus. You can't get into the team facility until then And then for some reason you don't pass a physical than you would have to forfeit that money You know usually it's the other way around where you have to take a physical even get a deal done so we're seeing that happening. Tom Brady taking this physical with an independent doctor in York. You can still do those things. Team wants to look at you Later on so. It's there's a Lotta Gray area. This is sort of the issue with With trying to move forward with a new league year at the same time where we have a pandemic. It was just Things like this happen to get sorted out and nobody really has a clear cut answer. Do you think it will get sorted out? And how would they sort it out there get somewhere? It doesn't seem fair so I would imagine that they'll meet in the middle then the owners and the players because what is being proposed or what you're hearing doesn't seem fair and all right so a lot of players are essentially agreeing to these deals are signing them and then just hoping for the best in that they have to just stay in shape. You know which which is kind of a weird thing and usually there aren't a lot of failed physicals maybe one or two year We're a deal gets rescinded. So for the most part. It's not a problem but you know it's it's you'd hate to see somebody lose money like that over issue so their teams might take a softer line. Not all teams are going that hard on it you know. They can That that would be probably a P. R. Nightmare if they were taken away money three months from now because I think the real interesting one here is Cam Newton because just because of all the injury history. There and teams hesitant. Yeah that's going to be like our teams get an advocate House Cam. Get an advocate through this difficult right. I noticed some trepidation with some teams. Because they don't know what they would be getting even if they look into them. And then there's the fact that the quarterback musical chairs are pretty much taken up. I mean there's not a whole lot less there. You have the chargers Who It looks like. They're going with tyrod Taylor at this point now. Maybe they'll reassess that if Cam Newton is released Which I don't expect to happen today. But there there really hasn't been a lot of with trade partners. You know the the panthers were never going to get a first round pick for him in the first place got especially now because of the issues with physical and so most teams feel pretty good that he will be healthy next year but they just don't know for sure he's putting out instagram videos. And he looks good in his workouts. But that only shows you so much so it's an issue and You know maybe around the summertime. There'll be more clarity with CAM but you could also sign him just based on his degree you know an MVP and maybe he can return to that. But it's hardly a guaranteed Jeremy Fowler ESPN senior NFL writer also covers the steelers and more for ESPN. He is with us here on the Shell. Pennzoil performance line. Because you cover the steelers begs the question Antonio Brown. Can you envision Tony Brown going with Tom? Brady to Tampa Bet. Well I can envision it in this scenario I don't know the buck need it. You know they have to elite receivers Chris Godwin and Mike Evans have some good tight ends. You know I think it was more of an issue with the Patriots. Time didn't want to see him leave and if he resigned there maybe they could bring him back just for more firepower. I do know that braiding Brown and correspondents in recent months about. Hey maybe we can play together. One day but you know that's hardly a slam dunk? Bruce Arians does not have a good relationship with Antonio Brown. I used to But over the last year or two. They've had some verbal sparring online and You know I just don't see that in Tampa at least Brown Brown's a far away from even getting suspended. Let alone playing now. You have to go through a lot of steps With counseling and checking. Nfl boxes away from the field. Make sure you're doing okay before they can even hand you a suspension for all your wrongdoing. He's not even air yet and so he's a long way from playing. Jeremy Fowler with us here on. Espn Radio Ben. Rothlisberger gave an interview where he said he expects himself to have not just the big year. This year expects the team to also have a big year but he said big years ahead of him. Do you expect Ben. Rothlisberger is a guy who covers the steelers for ESPN. And can you still envision rothlisberger having not a big season but big years ahead? Only go that far. I think he'll come back and play pretty well just because he's you know he's a highly he's still a top. Ten quarterback is a high level guy. it's just there are still some uncertainties he can get on the ball coming off that elbow injury Now he's on the right track and past all the steps he needs to so Perhaps he can get there but that's just something he has to show now the steelers feel good about it enough where you know. They don't really haven't planned to sign any sort of starting quarterback I know there's some speculation about Jameis Winston I don't know if that will happen. But you know either way he would be back up on me. Big they're and they're they're ready For him but the next two years to play out a very lucrative contract and they feel pretty good about where he is But you know losing Antonio Brown lady on bail the last few years I it's it's uncertain how this offense is GonNa do with a lack of weapons. You know they just don't have a lot of firepower right now. I need to add some in the draft. How mad or the steelers. I know that students asked you about Antonio Brown. But how mad or the steelers are compassionate. Where will you find in the steelers locker room? Something that extends into concern and compassion for Antonio Brown. Well I think I think it's all the above. You know there is. There was some anger there for sure But a lot of people really did care for him when he was going through his problems and then when he eventually left the team But they they knew that. Pittsburgh was a safe haven for him that he shouldn't have left or forced his way out because they felt like it was sort of a cocoon for him where you know he was late to meetings or had some issues. Mike Tomlin and the steelers would manage it all and get him to the field because that was really the only way to manage them was to not micromanage them and You know so. They knew when he went to Oakland that he really didn't stand a chance. And so now I think I think there's still employers that wouldn't mind playing with them If he could get his life in order and get back on the field I feel like he's that much of a difference maker and a lot of guys in that locker room. We're we're pretty good friends with them. But he also had problems with explosive behavior and You know just The way he would sort of Get angry and had had the mood swings that you wouldn't expect and so I doubt he's back in Pittsburgh but you know he's still has relationships there people do care about them. Are you willing to make any sort of amateur diagnoses when it comes to everything with him where I understand that? He was problematic before that the public yet have literally the public had no idea that. Antonio Brown was a problem child through week sixteen before it all came apart in like it came apart after one game and in one off season right and then it was just an avalanche after that and I think Pittsburgh managed that and they also protected him. They kept him out of harm's way in some ways. You know there were Police calls To his house over multiple years. That never really got released until after he left. Now maybe that's just because people started could big into it after that because he had become a problem. But these are things you just didn't hear about unless you went looking for them and Until two thousand eighteen or so there wasn't a lot of reasons to look to nineteen and so I try to focus on the anecdotal part of it. Which is you talked to several players. You talk to people around him and they specifically reference the mood swings. How he would just he'd be fine. One Minute get really angry and start. Cussing AND PEOPLE DO NEXT. And so you have some of that. I don't know what that means. As far as an official diagnosis would go there but You know it's IT'S. The personality was very hard to to deal with a. Lotta ex players and a lot of associates who worked for him for a short period of time because they eventually be fired or things were happening. Where where? They couldn't work there anymore. Jeremy Five thousand yards and thirty three touchdowns a year ago. Is it as simple as the thirty interceptions as to why James Winston is struggling to find a team to find a home because guys like that normally first off. They don't get that go by their team. Secondly they find the new home pretty quick. Yeah it's just. It's the fact that he's five years in making these bad decisions that the bucks couldn't trust them. You know this guy that drafted first overall one to give every benefit of the doubt and so became really clear at the NFL. Combine that not only were they sort of Waffling on him about pro publicly. But even privately heard rumblings at a team kind of ripping them a little bit when they talk to the people around the league that they couldn't trust him and he looks like an mvp one play and then a third stringer the next. And so I think that just caught up to Tampa and a lot of teams right now as a result do look at as a backup but there is a lot of raw talent still there and it's probably untapped. I doubt he ends up in New England. But I just can't help but wonder like if you get a coach like ballot check you know. Can you fix him? You know you can reduce the mistakes. That would be pretty poetic if you brought him in and they could do that And use the town. He has to move the Ball Downfield. Probably Unlikely but right now there just aren't a lot of homes for them unless you try to do the Ryan Tannehill formula from last year. It'd be like a high level backup. Go somewhere where. There's maybe a shaky quarterback situation and try to get in some games show. You can do it again. Jeremy Thank you for being with us. We appreciate it anytime.

"Win the sort of maybe at least platoon of the second base job. Because I suspect that's what we're gonNA see because as you mentioned. Madison is the only regular left. Handed her in the lineup. So I think comes probably getting the majority of the Games there but That means that it comes down to the twenty sixth spot between essentially via mail machine. And who's the guy and Matteo bredow whichever one does not get that spot and I gotTa say if you've already got Chad. Pender as a utility player probably want euro utility guy to be a left-handed hitter. So Hor Hey Matteo for me right now might be the odd guy out of the Bunch. I think the feel like they've really invested a lot in Baretto. They know him well. I really like them. There's a Lotta player. Development People feel very strongly about him. I they like Matteo to. I'm not saying they don't but but certainly I think baretto might have an edge. I think this is one of those Very infrequent springs in which spring performance might actually play a role for these guys. Yeah and that's there's always one or two of those guys every campus last year. Was Frankie Mon toss who I remember before we're sitting here before he makes his first started. This spring I remember talking the pre-game show last year with Chris. Townsend about how Frank Mon toss couldn't couldn't afford to ease into spring training. He needed to be good right away to win. That fifth rotation spot yeah similarly for these second baseman. They need to be good right away and need to show that this job can be.

"You guys are able to swing the bat more solid defense, and more importantly, I guess good base running along the way. Yeah. For sure you look at these guys back these guys baseball cards, and you know, that that tell south, but we just gotta go out there and do it. And I think everybody's getting a little more comfortable a plan together and just knowing everybody salads, and you haven't fun, y'all. Always nice job. Thank you Dexter Fowler. Our player the game. Yeah. I'd say he had a great time tonight. Four for five four RBI's three runs scored a three thirteen batting average eight thirty six oh p s and when you look at his April numbers he's hitting batting average right now of three. Twelve three twelve in the month of April. It's just incredible with the turnaround Dexter Fowler as done look, it wasn't that many games. It was only ten at bats in the month of March. But he was hitting one hundred four strikeouts for walks and total of ten at bats. But to have that turnaround for Dexter Fowler is incredible. And again, this is a locker room guy. This is a guy that everyone can feed off of it. And if you go through that lineup a lot of guys like that long like that. Jose Martinez is like that. John breviary like that. But Dexter Fowler is one of the guys he was the one that guys talked about in the season of bringing them here in having that affect in the locker room if he's having success on the field. You know, he's having an effect in the locker room, and again, it's just incredible to watch for Dexter Fowler in what he has done the season and bakes the question do you potentially look at moving him up higher in the lineup again. I don't really need to touch it right now as you put together thirty nine runs scored in the last five games. But it's a question to have. Because it gives you a little more top heavy lineup. It makes a lot more dangerous and hack even if you do.

And I went next door and they snagged the candy canes off today real big candy canes. Wow. I don't know. How large the tree was. But as a little kid, it just it looked like thirty rock. It was huge. Oh my gosh. And so I always thought when I grow up on a tree never told my my folks aren't shouldn't speak for them. I don't think they're terribly thrilled that there's a tray in my house. And you saw at the grove. Oh, yeah. Suzy when the kids went to go see Santa at the grove. You were fired up for this. Refined him you were dishing being Grinch and a grump.

"Fowler the Chad Fowler investment thesis, the venture venture investment thesis, the low me the five minute Chad Fowler investment thesis. Oh, I don't know. I don't know if I can construct that, but I can take all those words that you just said and tell you something about how I think about it. It may not be an investment thesis. So I, I am an investor venture partner with blue yard out of Berlin. And when we were talking, because when we're talking about this, it was because I was about to run Ron small conference in Iceland, which we did called future of software development where we got all these forward. Thinking practitioners, researchers, and entrepreneurs that are doing stuff to to bring forward how we do software development in the future in a hopefully linear way, as well as people who have made historic contributions to the field. Previously, I don't know if I can call it an investment thesis, but if you take the combination of those things, you just talked about so machine learning big code as some of the machine learning for programs at this people talk about it. So the existence of, for example, get hub as. Public repository over positive Aures. This is historically something that has not existed, and now it does the advances in machine learning self and the performance of machines that you know stuff like deep neural nets possible and then crypto currency economies. And I say that because it's not just about making a coin, but I think when you do crypto currency, right? It's because you're an Ebeling a new protocol to be developed on top of an incentive economy lunch, these things together. And I imagine a world where, for example, open source development is reimb- lamented on top of protocols that are driven by economic incentive. So you could, for example, buy shares in an open source product project and have that be part of how governance works, but also gain shares by contribute. Eating and contributions could be baked into the protocol so that the the protocol of how humans interact and open source projects and Santa visor stuff like. Helping people on forums and contributing documentation, not just contributing code. So if you have that, then I believe we're getting to a place where software the actual code is not not the value anymore. It were. We're pretty much already there, but most people have admitted it yet. So therefore all software can be open source, and then you just charge buying or you make money off the software by running it for people and providing safe environments for decks acute. So all software is open source hoping source development is done on this token economy and and you can make money off the token economy. It's possible that software developers don't actually work at companies anymore, or at least there's a huge migration away from that. And instead they're just working on open source projects and they're, they're getting paid for the work..

"Chad. Fowler was the CTO Wunderlist prior to its acquisition by Microsoft, since the acquisition of Wunderlist. Chad has become the general manager of developer advocacy at Microsoft. He also works as a venture capitalist at blue yard capital, an early stage investment firm. I had a lot of fun talking to Chad because he can move seamlessly between talking about disparate subjects, like cloud computing, investing crypto currencies in music composition, and he has novel things to say about all of these. When Chad joined Wunderlist he helped start a large refashioning of the software architecture which makes for a great story. And then he helped the company navigate to a successful Microsoft acquisition. We started off the conversation with the story of that rearview texture of Wunderlist. And then we talked about the current opportunities that he sees in front of Microsoft. Chad gives us perspective on coober Netease functions as. Service and how developer tooling might evolve in the near future. After talking about the near-term of developer tooling, we talked about the distant future bug bounty, marketplace's on the blockchain using get hub repositories to train machine learning models about how to write code the comparison between music collaboration and software collaboration was a wide array of topics, but Chad was equipped to discuss all of them and that's because he works at Microsoft, and he makes large investments in the future through venture capital. And he studied music when he was in school. So it's really a lot of random stuff in this episode but was really entertaining from my point of view, and I think you'll enjoy it as well. Before we get started, I want to mention that we are hiring a creative operations lead. If.
