If anyone we're gonna buy crypto if they're buying pizza with their friends, pizza and wings with their friends and paying back because again, you know You look like you say, you know, Bitcoin is super expensive.

The Dark Side Of Porn
"Most professionals in the field do not classify porn addiction as a mental disorder. And i think that. That's still in flux too. When i was doing that research. What i found is some people say well. It is like a gambling addiction or it is like this or in other people would say no no. It's a different thing. But one thing that these doctors and researchers agree on. And certainly i think you and i agree on is it. It is whether we it's an addiction or not whether it's classifiable mental disorder or not it does become a problem in a certain percentage of people's lives people who start to use it excessively. Who feel that. They are using it in some ways to distance themselves from from others or who. Who can't you know Have erotic relationships or people who are partners with somebody who's using it accessibly And that's in some way impacted their intimacy. You know. that's where we're really talking today and we're going to have some help talking about this issue because it's something frankly i don't have any first hand experience with and and it sounds like you. You know you do use pornography sometimes but it at least you know any ground way. Hasn't become a problem in life. We're going to talk to noah church who has had a problem with it in the past. He started using porn when he was nine years old. Okay that scares me. I want to ask them about that. Has its own us. That's right my daughter is about to turn eleven. my son is. He struggled with porn addiction until he quit using porn at the age of twenty four. He's the author of the book wack addicted to internet porn and he runs the website addicted to internet porn dot com and again. I'll say when we use that word porn addiction to on today's episode. We're not suggesting it's an official mental disorder. We're suggesting that porn can be a difficult experience for people who use it excessively and this is the way that we're using that terminology so no it just happens to be here in the studio with us today. Welcome to dear sugar. Radio noah. welcome. Thank you so much. It's such a pleasure to be

How Blackjack Player 'MPS' Got in the AP Game
"Our guest is blackjack player who calls himself mpc s. Nps welcome to gambling with an edge. Thanks for having me. So how did you get started in. The ap game yeah. I was in the bahamas on a business trip. Just looking for somewhere to have dinner and the place that i happen to find was in a casino and i'm walking and i was. I was never a gambler. raised conservatively. Gambling is bad and it just never appealed to me. Because i don't like losing money and my thought process was that's what gambling is but here i am at this casino somewhere in the caribbean and i'm walking across the gaming floor and i see this beautiful blonde at a blackjack table and i had less than zero interest in the blackjack game but i decided to sit down and to shoot my shot and so i sat there and you know i had a little cash on me and i bought in and i had no idea what i was doing. I always took insurance. I had some terrible hits Some terrible stands as well and yeah. I just happened to get lucky and i won four hundred bucks but actually i didn't get lucky and ended up going to eat dinner by myself and as i'm eating dinner. Something that one of them said stuck with me it was. You always have to do the same thing on sixteen versus ten. But it doesn't matter if you hit or if you stand. And i remember thinking that can't be right like there has to be a correct way to play And it can't be a factor of what you've been doing previously and anytime i didn't know it but i was thinking that there has to be a basic strategy and did Peach my curiosity a little bit. And i started poking around online.
Redick: Pels, Griffin didn't honor word with trade
"Jj redick longtime veteran fifteen years in the leak. Good player not great good. Though he requested a trade from new orleans pelicans in november and asked them to send them somewhere one he was up. You know not upset but hey drew's gone through holiday. That was a big part of why i came here. And you know. I would like to be close to my family in brooklyn close enough where i can go see him on off days things like that. They told him. Bet you got it. And of course they trade him to dallas so he's upset because he says they didn't keep their word. Here's jj reading on his own podcast. My understanding all along was that. I was going to get a buy out. And if i was going to be traded it was going to be to a team in the northeast where i was closer to home and i'd be able to see my family for the last two or three months of the season obvious that didn't happen. I don't think you're gonna get honesty from that front office. Just objectively speaking. I don't that's not an opinion. i just don't think you're going to get that. But i think i was a little naive in thinking that because i was in year fifteen and you know i had at least attempt to do things right throughout my career and i honored my end of the bargain but in terms of this front office. Yeah i mean. It's it's not something where i would expect. Certainly the agents that that worked on this with me to ever to ever trust that front office again.
N.H.L. Fires Referee for Comment on Penalty Call
"Well the nhl has announced that. Tim peel has been fired immediately. He will never work. Nhl games now in the future. Colin campbell announced it this morning. By saying in part there is no justification for his comments no matter the contexts or its intention in the nhl will take any and all steps necessary to protect the integrity of our game. This is incredibly overzealous on part of the nhl. What do you think yes a little much. I mean i get why they're doing it because you just don't want to see. They have an agenda. Coming in like things are predetermined. I mean you. And i both know what he's saying. Is i want to keep the game from getting out of control. So we're setting the tone early. I mean that's that's what ref do but you're not supposed to acknowledge it and i think it's just they don't need to fire him though like you know. And maybe they could. They could quietly bring him back but it seemed like they were making him a scapegoat for this. I got a. I got an email from a friend of mine. Who's a referee. And i gave you the name. Because he's still rafts yup but here's what he said. I've officiated thousands of basketball games in my life. Tim peel said what every single official has thought. During a many times we just either keep it to ourselves or speak about it to our partner at halftime when it's only us in a room in a basketball game. Let's say the foul count is one side. Maybe it's six. Oh the calls were all one hundred percent correct and the foul count should be six. Oh if not more we can look up at the scoreboard and see the count and we also gear up from the coach. Who said he's had six called against his and none of four forum and if there's a break in the game wrestled get together. And if they're veteran officials yeah they will say they need to call one against the team with zero fouls the next time. That team comes anywhere close to committing a foul. That's the one that's going to get called if the files were six. Oh against them. There's no way we'd call that foul but here comes a whistle. Both coaches know. It's coming to and this guy. My friend is exactly right. Yeah i for the initial shock time gambling going on here further. Okay the rest being mic'ed up. There's a lot of players that we i know about the nba. They have players are miked. Up and coaches are miked up. There's somebody who they don't all go on the broadcast. I mean there is a feed where the unedited sound this. Somebody leaks it but mostly the only stuff that the the broadcast air has been sort of pre-approved somebody from the league. That's sitting there listening to it saying okay. We use that use this. This'll be good juicy and a years. Do you remember when the when the warriors were playing the rockets and steve kerr was there was a there was audio of steve. Kerr saying something about. Kevin durant like kevin needs v or aggressive or. I can't remember what he said but it was something like he needs to. He can't just take over there. You know whatever it was and it got through like we they aired it on the broadcast and then it became a thing game. Steve kerr got asked about it and stuff and he was rightly pretty upset. Because that's the exact kind of thing that you know the this whole thing of biking coaches and players up. It's based on trust. It's based on this idea that you know you're going to kind of protect me from something like that happening. Right of of in the moment and the emotions of the game coach yells at star player star player yells at so teammate. Whatever which is literally what happens in every single game if that gets taken out if that gets blown up that quote gets goes everywhere like then it becomes a problem for these coaches and players. And they're not gonna let themselves get mike up

No no serum hopes to soon be churning out a hundred million doses per month of this one vaccine on top of all the other vaccines they're still producing here. The oxford astra zeneca. Formula is particularly attractive to india and other low and middle income countries. Because it needs just regular refrigeration not subzero temperatures. This is for storage area.

This is a sovereign indian tried entering into the open american market and they won't have any Saverin indian protections in that sense because this is not an tribal land. It is an american transaction within the state of nevada and within our system commerce. So i'm pretty sure that. The nevada gaming control board in the nevada courts avi of stuff that would apply are going to apply to this casino in its personnel while acting within the state differences. They're acting in the state of nevada. They're not acting on indian on indian tribal land.

I have the proper bartender which he'll probably explain more of that anyway and matt can't be here. Sorry guys but let's toasty. What the heck do you do man. So thanks for the introduction. Yes i am. Social media not grew but on social media. My tag is proper bartender What i do is i supply beverage. Consultancy direct coverage programs. I develop them as well. A bar management and for typically the most recent program that i had was based in the stockyards unfortunately as we are all familiar with current events that was unable to last unfortunately did not receive the type of funding or direction that we envisioned that it would be able to receive in those regards and we just weren't able to the ownership wasn't able to hold on and we had to let it go but it was a program that was very very very proud of it was the excuse me it was. The only pre through post prohibition craft cocktail bar in fort worth little like this is like Like old school kind of sure absolutely so we're trying to say it was very much old school something it was authentic self. It was originally established in nineteen eleven. Right it's been a few things in the time period but it was actually texas. I gambling hall and salute so in nineteen eleven. What happened was they opened up again home saloon soon. After as as we're all familiar with prohibition hit now prohibition for those who are aware means that basically the consumption and production of alcohol became legal while when that happened Gambling was still legal. So what they did was. They moved at the bar downstairs hidden and they kept the gambling room upstairs. Interestingly enough soon. After the repeal of prohibition gambling in the state of texas became illegal so in order to fool the fuzz if you will the old switcheroo took place and they moved the bar upstairs and downstairs and it's a really great space. It's it's the history. There's incredible the original owner of time. So the downstairs still there. The downstairs is all american oak tables and chairs. It was actually attained that way because at the time the original owner gave a loan out to a gentleman who was a friend of his and he was unable to pay back said loan but the joe men was a carpenter and he worked at the local lumber mill. Yeah so in order to reimburse him he actually built him. Twenty tables and eighty chairs out of oak. And those things are sturdy and place has an incredible history. I mean we have people like we had people like bonnie and clyde we had Benny binion all of these historical figures who of helped form the the the the good guy bad guy type mentality of the wild west of even before it was all start becoming hollywood ask is
Independent Sports Consultant Leon Mann Discusses Racism in Soccer
"So how you take it knowing that this has been something. You've been working on campaigning for ages. Now i mean vegetables. Thank you for me on can share some thoughts and views. It's great to be with both of you You know. I'm big fans of both your work. It's a real honor to be on here but It does what happened last summer. You know it was the realization of the problems that we've been talking about for many many years decades you know in. Shuckers dykes wallet. Back in terms of is what. Show racism. The red card myself. I've been working with campaign. Kick racism out football now known as kick out and guns but this football blacklist together and the black to a major spill around journalism and these conversations have been ongoing around right out week kind of diversify our industry. How do we ensure we see black leaders in our industry and how do we change. Dynamic swiftly and those conversations were incredibly frustrating because that would be a win in the room but it would be a lack of action to follow them So as a result of that we kept on having lots of conversations with barre barre slow progress but what happens in the summer it the game to store to reflect an actually as a community. We'll stood together and said no this is this is not going to continue anymore We cannot sell people treated this way. And we're not going to have this going to stand for. I think the fact that we're ruled on lockdown at the time meant that people were very very focused on this issue and as a result of that It feels like with with moving forward in a in a much more positive direction. in terms of the actions. And i'm you know privy to With the chief executives of lee seung susceptible associations etc and it lonely be judged on the actions. Of course bofill am. I do say this with some kind of kool shen because of twenty years of working on this. But i feel like we're in a place where we can get some real progress made leon as as transformative as twenty twenty has been i. I wanna talk a little bit about the start of couponing of the blacklist. What was you spock. And why kind of given the social challenges of the The last two years you felt the need to do that email as as as you already mentioned it was in and i'm sure you recognize would have been in such a frustrating atmosphere to not. Yeah i mean th th the black this was was born out of you know wanting to do something when type response. I had control over so looking for the kick out. Racism out full. It was a campaign was fantastic. Transitioning into a journalist with the bbc where it was working as a presents when report was great for me as an individual also had freedom to kind of put some actions in place. So i could control and drive myself alongside with my community. So i was as a campaigner meetings with various black people but black people that my friends and family from the black community would never know so when they're talking to me about How did you get get a job in football. And leon how why. Why do we never see any black representation. I said well the dead as many but they are there. So i thought well how do we shine a light on these people to celebrate contribution but also show the next generation of young black men and women. Listen you wanna be a lawyer in football. You can do it because this person has done it. And they're working at this. You want to be working in a major department. You wanna be a doctor. You wanna do all these kinds of jobs. You can't do it because these people have come before you. They all the pioneers that we should be celebrating in a similar way to how we celebrate a pioneering back players in every single position. We should celebrate these people as a way of opening the due to the next generation. Now of course that only works if that comes together with opportunity. Because i can go into community show about look you gamble Look here baltimat- live people arrive adult. It doesn't open Then they'll just turn around and disappearance of industries and just kind of have a relationship with football They will you on the tv or go to gags. So that's the bit. I think we need to work on you. Know in terms of where are the opportunities you know how much what the game is doing to attract retain and develop people bring a different diversity to the game and also not to see as as a charitable act.
"gamble" Discussed on The Dave Chang Show
"It's like so if the coverage of gambling and how it's integrated into the sports centers of the world and like serena williams will lose in the first round. Let's say in the australian open. What's the first thing you want to know or within thirty seconds you'll hear what the odds were right like right there. That's got to be good. West gate says that it was forty to one odds. That's almost immediately in the conversation. Secondly i don't know i think it's funny it. It goes back to art fantasy football. Talk right so. I think it's all everything's a gateway drug so you're in a fantasy football league right the casual fan. And that's where he or her tries to beat up on on their friends right. Then you do daily fantasy if fantasy. Football's not enough. And if that's not enough then you're then you're gambling right. You're you're betting on every game. And i think that the research shows that people are into it. They're not you know they're building kiosks for live bedding and all these stadiums. It wasn't twenty years ago. It was seven years ago. That roger goodell said there wouldn't be a team in las vegas now not only a team. But like i said they're building these mechanisms where you can live that game. So i think the fact that people's attention span get smaller and smaller means that they wanna bet more and more and more fractional bending during the game so yeah i think it's up there. What would your thing bay. You think there is a ceiling. Well i i don't know my only frame of reference would be australia where gambling not only is legal. It's everywhere yeah because there's only three things. Australia take seriously sports drinking and breakfast and visit firebaugh buying a fan and you can go to any bar and there's a there's a kiosk and you can just it's dangerous to me. I think it's dangerous. But now the app and i think australia is one of the first places. You could just download an app and gamble. Whatever the hell you want it. So i don't know it's still a little too Like catholic-protestant in its belief system to embrace it. And i think america. I don't know man like the the more. I think about gambling. The more i think about it as a sports stock market You know and and the way you talk about the way the odds are played and the research right if any type of news hits. It's the same news of you know this medicine. didn't get approved by the fda and it goes down so on and so forth. I think it's interesting. I think it's actually an amazing to learn math. Yeah so they should teach it in first grade common core thrown in there. Yeah out salvage just saying this is completely obvious to you guys already but you know you were talking about like when serena loses the first round of the us open they immediately go to like from opponent was a seventy eight hundred to one underdog shots..

"You guys have both spent more time at the tables than i have other ever moments where you see. Can you is the dealer thrill do they ever portray some emotion that you're seeing like oh this guy really just beating all of us or do does it ever come out and that way you you're saying you talked bosses and stuff like if you're a jerk they don't want you if you're in you treat them like a normal human being like you would wanna be treated and you tip them when you're winning then it's fun man but i mean they are they getting a thrill out of it out of their job their side of the gamble like winning beating you now i mean i think sometimes i do think it's true when they bring in a cooler I'm not gonna say anything other than i think. It's possible that they can bring in a dealer that might shuffle a little bit differently. Or i dunno out. I believe that a documentary. Or or whatever or booker something would be the abuse that dealers take because they take a lot and sometimes for my idiot friends and i'm like all right down again. This guy's not doing anything. This woman's not doing anything different from what's to be expected. So let's let's cool it right. I feel like there'd be a bunch of good stories in the well. I mean we obviously saw casino and patchy and it doesn't get to that level where they're flipping cards until the guys you know blazer or whatever but yeah a lot of abuse Taken in that position. Yeah i also think that it should never be the dealers fault. When somebody asked them. Should i should i split. What do you think and the deal shouldn't give advice. It's not responsible. But nevertheless they got pressure they do. And then you know let's just say you bust. The dealer wins and the player gets upset. I'm like i don't understand why the player gets upset at the deal. That shouldn't have.

How Lessons From Esports Past Drives Esports Future with Repeat.gg CEO Aaron Fletcher
"This audience. So Eric go through the companies you found it quite a few there are plenty of starts across this industry. What advice can you give to some one of the first steps of fouling their own Esports or gaming company that you wish you do when you were starting out darn raised before you have Mom don't do anything until you have markets it it's it's that's it. That's purely it. I guess there's two things and don't be a dick but the the biggest one is definitely until you have some formal Market 5th and you can find out if you go to market fit pretty quickly just talk to people ask questions find the right people finding users find those things find out how much they willing to pay find out if they're willing to basically walk or use your product find out all these sort of things and grow that first before you start thinking. Oh, this is amazing. This is going to work cuz I think there's there's and and then I guess the other one actually is learned from birth. Past experiences and a lot of people don't do that, especially with a t Sports because the history have a have a chat to someone like either myself or have a chat like don't talk to someone who's a consultant that's been in the year in in the game two years talked to someone who's being in the industry for twenty years because they will tell you a lot more valuable information than someone who's been in there for two years and only knows about the currency because the current scene it's all about raising this big money about raising this big capital and you don't get the history of like the companies like tournament.com the raised a hundred million dollars and went broke over six months. You don't have seats need a CDL or CTS. I think it is that raised a hundred million dollars as well and we're broke after a year-and-a-half. You don't have all of these kind of things and we're play verse was as an example before they became what they raised what they are now off and that that you kind of could find on the internet even though I know the history there and there's a lot of other companies like that that you'll that you you only get from the perspective of people that have actually been in the industry because people have a game Get it either scrubbing the internet or it's just hard to find anything that isn't relevant now absolutely agree. It's the same advice. I give to student journalists. I talked to quite a few classes about hey, what could you do any sports journalist? What if we want to get involved in this space? And the first thing I tell them is get to know the history of the space get to know everything that happened with Major League Gaming from 2002 to 2010. That's where the start get to the creedy sports Association how this developed in Asia and that will guide your accurate reporting on this space if you understand what happened long before you probably got involved in it that was the case for me cuz we got a school, you know, I was in the 2015 2016 range was like, oh massive Madison Square Garden League of Legends. This is crazy thing off you go back in time and you're like, okay, let's look at the Madden tour bus as like an example of where it's these things that happen is sports over the time that I think are really crucial job. Like understand how we got to the place where at today and then helped give you those guiding lessons to make sure that the same mistakes aren't made. Well MLG an ESL at two really good examples of understanding their Acquisitions why they happened what happened with the issues they ran into especially MLG with God Frank cuz they had a whole pile of litigation issues with God frag when they did their acquisition why they got acquired by Activision and wage. It's it's an interesting story. That's probably better for another time. But in terms of those sort of things and that history that was kind of built there is actually really important because getting a quiet is a skilled gaming platform different platform broadcasting platform any of those by a publisher is a huge problem from both illegal Nightmare and a whole pile of other things because the skilled gamer is 18 plus as well as the tournament system requires 18 plus or Parental Guidance cetera, et cetera. So it becomes a Minefield on those sort of things and then you've got ESL same thing going through their acquisition and the different times they are now with mods. This group and and the difference in the kind of the company structure cuz everyone says he s l and they see these companies and they're like, they must be making it a billion dollars and I'm like, yeah doesn't look like that. It may seem like that from the outside cuz they're doing these large events and they're doing these things. But in terms of the revenue is not driven as much as you kind of think from that. It's really driven through the Publishers. Yeah, if you're done if you're not the publisher gave and you work a t sport chances are the money is not flowing your exactly there's only a few Outlets the kind of work and I've been in basically every single facet of that because I used to run events with the young. I used to run a lot of those sort of things with them for a long time. Actually u c l e s w c w c g a lot of the events around those and running those Live Events is is great. But it's like a break even marketing cost. It's not a it's it's what you'll use to fuel income elsewhere. Not what you're used to make money lost leader marketing basically at this point. Yeah, exactly. That's it's a funny industry to be it especially as we look at where these Sports organizations are going. This is totally off topic. By the way. Just the I had em for this wasn't for a podcast but I talked to Jason Lake in Andy Miller Jason Lake complexity CEO Andy Miller NRG CEO for audience. I do you do that. They were basically talking about hey, we're going to make Revenue eventually with our religious the Publishers of Olives. That's that's what we're counting on to make money in the mean time. We're going to keep building our brand up in whatever way we can we're to keep trying to capture feds. But really we just need to log get to a point where Publishers need us to enter the game because that will bring fans that will bring the marketing there looking for and then the Publishers have to reward us for doing so and that's kind of just walk the biggest eastwards organizations in the world see this space right now and that's it tells a lot. I think it will you actually have a look at most of these Sports organizations or actually converting from competitive Play De comme Recreation almost all right, converting over to that for Revenue basis cuz I've talked to a lot of these guys you have come like you've got Team Liquid as an example of trying to push in the text side of things cuz we've talked to him a few times about what they're doing for Thursday. We also consulted with the guild who raised with David Beckham, or they paid David Beckham to re it was it was a debacle. It was a drastic they they they are doing a good job. I think they really heavily like ninety percent of the money that they raised is purely attack. It's not to do to build out the team and build out anything on that account on the arm competitive site is secured purely build out both the content side as well as a Tech play on them because of the end of the day all this content and everything that they're creating in these fans and these users they need to figure out a way to monetize them and monetizing them generally comes through like merchandise. It comes through tourneys to come home a brand deals. And unfortunately, if you're the best game in the world, it doesn't mean you have a massive following you may not be entertaining to watch. So therefore content creation becomes king for this and which dog And fuels Brands which in turn fuels everything else and like I just talking to so as as Consulting with IDC, I think like probably a couple of weeks ago. I was I was talking to them cuz they're doing metro sports at the moment and it was a pretty interesting conversation cuz they're one of the first companies that isn't Yuzu that isn't that they're doing it. They're doing Esports Revenue a very different way. So Esports Revenue right now is off late. It is how much so it's like one point two billion or something. It's basically nothing compared to the publisher revenues like a hundred and sixty billion. So and that's where most of the revenue from E Sports is actually going. So what they're doing is they're doing a bottom-up kind of approach and looking at all of these other things that are kind of skewing it. So right now Esports revenue is calculated with just brands that are paying for events and advertising and all the way around that around which basically whereas they're looking at it from the other side of things and they're like, look, there's all this gambling Revenue that's also generated on top of Like betting on these matches and all this this looking that's that's showing any sports revenue and you've got companies like skills that their revenue alone for skills is bigger than the revenue of every single e sports team exists in the world in his voice. That's
Can You Be Addicted to Love?
"Nicotine. Chocolate alcohol opioids work gambling. Sex food you might as well face it. Life is basically a gauntlet of substances and behaviors. That humans can become obsessed with and dependent on. But what about love not just sex but the deep interpersonal attachment we call love can be addictive. The notion of obsessive all consuming and even addictive love goes back literally thousands of years the ancient greek poet. Sappho wrote about watching her lover mary. Someone else and she describes being seized trembling drenched in cold sweat and feeling nearly dead she might as well be describing opium withdrawals or singing aversive addicted to love romantic. Love does have a lot of external features in common with drug addiction initial feelings of bliss and euphoria and obsessive fixated behavior often leading to poor potentially life ruining decisions. Two thousand ten paper from the new york academy of sciences points out that common criteria for diagnosing dependence include life interference tolerance withdrawal and repeated attempts to quit. Sound anything. like your relationship with your ex if so you're certainly not alone. But is there any more measurable basis for thinking. Love can be considered an addiction in the brain. Actually yes. let's talk brain imaging one way. That addiction hijacks the human brain is by taking advantage of a million reward and motivation systems. Like the mess olympic dopamine system which includes the ventral tag mental area and the nucleus accumbens. This is part of the nervous system that gives us internal rewards when we do something with an evolutionary benefits like eating or having sex essentially how the brain tells itself. Hey what you just did do that again. And again and again whether it's eating nutritious meal or unfortunately snorting cocaine back in two thousand five. A study in the journal of neurophysiologist used fm. Are i look at the brains of test subjects. Who self reported that they were intensely in love with someone else. When these lovebirds were showing pictures of the people. They adored there was activation in sections at that. Same mammalian reward and motivation system for example the right ventral mental area. But that's not all a follow up study in two thousand ten looked at what happened to the brains of men and women who had been rejected but reported that they were still deeply in love. It wasn't pretty when heartbroken. Lovers were forced to look at pictures of their exes. There was elevated activity in our old friends. The ventral take mental area and the nucleus accumbens researchers pointed out that the rejected lovers showed several neural correlates in common with the brain activity of cocaine addicts craving their drug so at the level of brain chemistry. Romantic love can be kind of like substance addiction but there are reasons why you might not want to refer to your latest crush as a full on addiction just yet. For example the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders does not officially recognize love addiction and while cravings for love can be devastating when their unrequited or self destructive they can also be deeply fulfilling in a way that no drug habit ever could be.

So like we were trying to find a different kind of language that would actually cut through all of that and finding different way of connecting with people even if it is random and feels cheesy, it's actually dialing up the scenes. That becomes interesting like it becomes funny trying to work out what's happening and the message behind the project has become pretty relevant during the pandemic period. What would the increase in online gambling and a study from the Australian Institute of Criminology that found that males under thirty and in fulltime work will more likely to gamble online during the lockdown. Lucy says, this is just evidence of how much online gambling is gearing itself toward a young target market Rasen. This is such. A big problem is just. Share effects that it can have on young people I. Think when people saw gambling young the we've still been having severe outcomes impacts on their mental and physical health. To mention you know financial impacts you know affects them their social life and connections to family and things quite devastating. So it's just saying you shouldn't eat gambling I get. There's. there's a bigger risk behind it. It's not just the game as well as being deeply ingrained in our culture. Gambling is something that's lung Bain stigmatized and stereotyped. For example, if I told you to picture a gambler in your head now, you'd probably think of a man maybe middle aged or older maybe with a bid and maybe looking a little unruly.

"From that point on then got into Ben. Romeo's. Laughs with made it really. As jell, even closer because we'll be urging all the time and the key to the Romeo's was. That the Romeo's was a band that we used to take songs that were already out. That were very popular like safer. They keep on pushing. Curtis Mayfield want people like that. We would take their songs. And rearrange them. We do a lot of medleys we do. People be familiar with the songs, but they would be different so. And huff is A. He's a singer. Roland was a singer Tommy was a singer. Can Sing a little bit, so we used to do like the hi. Lo's Oh we're. Take six. We used to do that kind of music, too, you know. And I really like that better than Than anything you know when we all sang together because I never really did like being on stage a black by myself, you know I never did strength in numbers strength in numbers. It was beautiful, so so do you know the first song you charted on an artist previously international? PRI affiliated national. I hit that we had before. Hope what the label scene like in Philly, like I know, there's lost night. It was a lot of them yet. It was a lot of it was chancellor. They with Cameo Parkway. Dad like record for all these labels all. Have a collection of. Like fifty labels all different. LEAD UNBELIEVABLE And of the. The Andrews! I was a fan you can. I knew it. Yeah I'm believable. He was Voice was like unbelievable. Thank you. So, how how is it that? We had like over twenty labels in Philadelphia and then. Suddenly. They just started to dissolve one by one. The industry changed. Okay industry changes like it's changing now. The industry changed. Because it went from independent distributors. To corporations take it over. Say for example He would have I would say in Philadelphia. They were about. Let's say fifteen distributors. Philadelphia And those distributors would might might be Rosen's was the distributor. On North Broad Street and he would sell. He would distribute maybe mercury records RCA, records. And maybe epic then you'd have Williams distribution they would have. Four or five other labels. Now, the thing of it is is that it got down to the point where. Where the industry. became. More consolidated okay like a chip. It's chip in. San Motown had sceptre at all these labels. and. You would. You would make a record. ouimet records in in It was much easier than those days for us. Because you make a record, you get chips to distribute it for you. and. You get airplay was the whole thing you gotta get your record on the radio. Somebody's got to play it in order for people to to want it. and. It's an old industry change. When the CBS is! The Warner brothers and all of these major. Corporations started to consolidate and they were by. All of these little labels and put them all together then WanNa. Brothers became a distributor. Themselves okay. Columbia records became distributed themselves. And so once they became distributors they were able to. Take guys like gambling off because we were independent. In fact, it was a good thing and a bad thing. Because they became competition now you know the major companies around, but what we were able to do. is to survive because. We became creative company. And the marriage that we needed was and that we we searched for. Was An administrator who could collect whatever royalties whatever monies that was due from all over the world, because it's a worldwide industry, so you gotta be collect money from. From Philippine Philippines Brazil every place. You can think Oh yeah. How how familiar are you with the Harvard report? Which? I believe that the original Harbert report. In Nineteen, seventy, one seventy one. Of which I guess, it was stated that. For. I don't know the point. was that for major labels to survive? Or for black music to survive, for basically the idea of a major label adopting. Smaller, black label. Yeah, that's that's what national was so. Was it someone? Who because by that point seventy two, even though there is. There's backstabbers and like things were starting to heat up but who? Who's the person that? You know who was inspired to write the Harvard report that really argued for you guys to to have a deal with Clive Davis. or He? This Harvard report and it's like you know you're right I should do this. I think they sponsored it. Oh. Okay Lot of director. Comey sponsored it because we were there at CBS like nineteen, sixty, nine seventy, when we was making ideal right, and it was kind of like if shadowed what we were doing with with CBS. because. There was a time when we would do albums and we would Album covers. And we will put the like an artist. My Jerry Butler or somebody like that on the front cover and their sales department was in all. We can't sell. It can sell it because it was a black face on it. Yeah, race records race records. This is where they were coming from, and so when we got into, it was a little more Music became a little more of a protests instrument. Right, you know. And the industry is opened up. It opened up.

Yeah with a water hose like with the. And It was so interesting that today. I still go there 'cause they always say the convocation around the my birthday to have it all across the country by the way. And, so that's what really got me listen to music. When and when you listen to our music, listen to the morning to try to. Get them horns going in there and It was good. What other thing you asked me was seeing the whole project through. The We started in Seventies. With the binding properties, we're clean up together. The intention was. To those properties and get the Land I. And so! That was there was a brother. His name was Norman and who worked along with us. and. He was These are real estate guy. He knew a lot about real estate and my wife. She knew about real estate, so we. Kinda disguised Norman as a person. Because then we could get them for very low prices because at that particular time. The the property in these neighborhoods. That I mean he's vacant lots. And whatever at that time they were very very cheap. You know in the city really wanted to see if things Developed and They had a couple of public housing programs, and so we were able to build up construction development company and they worked out good. It worked out real good that That the city of Philadelphia, it's not easy. It's not easy because it's a lot of red tape involved in all this, but. You know you gotTA. Go through it to get to where you WANNA go. That's what started the whole thing, but the the one ingredient as as we were doing this. The one thing that came into my mind was. Why haven't these programs work before? You have so many. Good intention people that want to do something a community. And what I found out. Is that in the development business? Is that you have people who live out of the African American community doing all the work in the in the community. And so we decided to do is to. Live in the community.

You could buy them for five thousand dollars, or whatever with today, those same lots today might cost you fifty one hundred thousand dollars. And, so it's become a money game.

You rebuild a whole community of people not to mention the school system and the schools that was everything is evolved around health. Good Health and education. At! So. We have some tremendous health programs that we were on education. was was the number one thing that we got involved and that was. The charter schools. And, so we have eight charter schools. And believe me. It's not an easy thing. It's not easy. It's GonNa take. It's GonNa, take years and years to reverse. This this consciousness that would then especially the African American community. And, but it's working. It can will work you know so. So, it's not it's not. It's not easy. Did you know that you were going to see it through from the very beginning assuming Matt you? started acquiring the property in the late eighties. Because even I hurt like I'd. When. My, uncle used to drive me to and from school. And we used to go like all that till abdicated. Busted down property and he was like. Yeah, you know Kenny Gamble And I could imagine. All these blocks. He's again. You know and. I couldn't see that far in the future did to figure out what vision you had to. Refurbish it and and restore it back to the what it is now like so from what year did you start to say that I'm GONNA rebuild. Well we we. Fourteen and fifteen blocks in south Philly or well, we well. It's we started like from From Eleven, Street. Always up to like twenty, four th street from South Street all we over Washington Avenue. That was the area. And within that area. There were. Blot vacant we at maps. We had like a war room. You know what I mean maps that every house. Every abandoned lot every school everything on on these on these maps. And what we did is came up with our plan. Plan was to be able to build a community. That, you could take an APP some open spaces. You know where you'd have some some gardens and have something open The schools! I mean it. This has been the hardest part is the schools. Education thing and What developing it like you just can't tell the city. I'm a mom. You've got to work with them. Yeah, you got to work with them. Even if it's a private school or well, these are charter schools, these public private schools, the problem with with private schools is economics of it. You know and And because many of our people don't have the money to pay to go to a charter school I mean to a private school. Yeah, so so we have. got a wonderful wonderful thing going and. And one of the things I can't think of it now you know. That's one of the to have when you get older. You start missing things. You'd be thinking about. Is Gone, but it'll come back. No come back. Man So. How did music I enter your life growing up in Philadelphia? What got you into the music? Well I, you know the music to me was always the always loved music, and there was a day that sticks out in my life, right? The data sticks out in my life. was there used to be? A baptism they used to have. Happened on fitting, Christian I used to live. And it was the daddy Greece church sixty. House of prayer, so the bands. I don't know if you've ever heard a band in. it was around my birthday when they have their Their complications and And that morning when my mother I asked I, said well. Who is that? You know up the street? And they were out there. Baptizing people.

NBA Trade Deadline
"Yeah. Mine is twenty two hours to the deadline for trade. Everybody's moving further away from the product of the bench and the Sixers got themselves a five and the rafters might have Kyle Lowry situation. Also feast your eyes on the us new putter twenty four year old promotes drill. Yup. Let go. Best holders twenty four his by. Get all that tad or older than his TV. Let's start with Tobias Harris to Philadelphia. Sixers get it near all star LSD. It's two picks said Landry Wilson and a Mike. We haven't Israel with us is this a figure deal for the Sixers or clippers. Well, because the question demands an answer I'll say the Sixers, but if you look at the clippers situation, obviously with getting a lot of free agents of cap space here available and if they end up not making the playoffs get to hold onto that twenty nineteen draft pick of theirs. It's obviously for the future. But for the Sixers it's right now. And this is exactly what teams that are close want. Their teams to do you go all in and Elton brand clearly did that with Jimmy Butler trade. And now this one I still question whether they can be the obvious top team in the east you want you have more town than that starting five, but your depth is diminished. And I don't know how much more Tobias Harris can give you when you're running stuff for Embiid and Riddick and Simmons and Butler already. But if I'm the Sixers fan, again, you're already that committed you might as well, go all in Lynton Yates, also. Well, it's about is a forty plus percent three point shooter. So he can give you that. However, the issue is that he's on expiring contract. So of this isn't at the top, you know, if this doesn't move the Sixers to the top will then it's a bad gamble, which is why I think ultimately the clippers probably win this because they've got everything they've needed in this situation. We're coop. Recouping all those players and picks is what you have to do in order for the clippers to improve. That's not always easy to pull off and actually get value back in terms device harassed. But right now, I think is he's right. If the Sixers can make it to the finals, this is justified whether or not you bring devised backing up, Bob, ruin your view of it. For the record. They just picked up one of the best kept secrets in the league. Most people do not know how good Tobias Harris is or that. He's averaging twenty two game but shooting forty three percent from the floor. They do points. Now, they they chlorate yet. They're the winner right now because they are now assembled one of the three or four best starting fives in the league. They're going for it it being getting to the finals. I don't know the day of deluded themselves to think that this team will beat the warriors when they get there. But I don't think they certainly think they can now beat the raptors the bucks and the Celtics with this team, and they may very well be right. So it's all about now for them. And as far as the clippers concerns over conjecture, sarahspain you. Yeah. The temptation is to go with the burden. The hand is better than two in the Bush and say this is all about the Sixers because as Bob Ryan said they've got one of the best starting five now and talent wise there as believable as anybody in the east to get the number one seed and go to the finals that being said, it's actually a bigger deal for the clippers because we already had the Sixers as one of the best teams in the east and with the potential to. Compete the clippers have now established themselves and very clearly made the moves that are necessary to say, we are a destination for two max super free agents in this off season. And that's a big change from where they were before. And what we expect it out of them. So it's a bigger deal for Ellen. I want to address it in second. But real quick since Bob said Philly's got a top two or three starting five in the NBA.

"Gamble and bet on something if both players know exactly what the state of the game is so the hidden information has to come from the players so my new game is called cordial minuet there's a grid of numbers it's a six by six read it looks pretty much like a bingo card with numbers from one to thirty six kind of arranged in a pattern now instead of bingo where you know you paul ball out of a hopper and tell tell which has been picked the players are picking the numbers one players picking columns on the grid and the other was picking rows and they're doing this in secret and then those columns intersect after each turn giving each player a number one of the numbers from one to thirty six that adds into their score but as the columns get removed from the grid is more and more information appearing about what you're may have gotten on the first turn on the second turn and then finally on the third turn and that's what you're betting on along the way at like battleship it is a little bit what's the point for you of the gambling.
